Found this online today and it was beautifully written that I had to share it with everyone. Nothing biblical in it but the message is the same. What you read, write, see, hear, and speak will always live within you. Like the Bible says…YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS. The truth in your heart will always win out. Although life is hard, what is more hard is living a life and living with anger, jealousy, gree, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
Words and talk that I should live by as well. I really do struggle with resentment. I always replay moments in my life were people have wronged me or have taken advantage of me. I am always there for everyone and Lord knows when something is wrong in their lives, I am the one who is there. In my darkest moments or moments of celebration, I have been alone. What am I feeding my mind? Resentment. What do I need to let go off…resentment.
Have a blessed Christmas Eve with family and friends. If you are not with loved ones, I pray that the Holy Spirit comfort you and wrap you with love and peace. As for me, i am blessed to be with my wife and kids. I do not take it for granted that I have them around. I miss my mom and dad as they are halfway around the world. It warms my heart that they are at my fathers childhood home right now.
The Newsboys say it best.
Some negativity, frustration and angst tried entering my thoughts, but the words of encouragement from workhorseforchrist really has been helping my the past two weeks. Adam has an amazing blog that will inspire and educate. Please visit it.
Finally, I thank the lord for each and everyone of you who take the time to read this blog. I pray that this blog helps you as much as it has helped strengthen my faith. God Bless us all! -PJSLB
The world tells me that it is impossible. The world tells me what’s in my heart is unrealistic. The world tells me I am setting myself up for failure. The world simply sees my situation thru the paradigm of earth.
I see it otherwise. I am a child of God. I serve a just God. I search for my God who works in the supernatural. When Victory and blessing is ours, it will be evident it is because the Lord entered on our behalf. All will see that it is only thru God that the far fetched has come true. This will be a testimony of faith to all who see my Victory.
What is a victory in your life that is obviously obtained because God stepped in?
Pray for all our brothers and sisters in Christ.
When people see my life, I want them to see a Christian. I want them to see love and hope. I want the Holy Spirit to use my life to effect positive change in someone else’s life. I have always said that I am not the perfect Christian. I search for Christ always and thats the best that I can do.
WHAT ABOUT YOU? Are people happy that you are in their lives? Do you bring them happiness? Is joy and happiness present when you are around? Do you always try to make it a point to hurt people with your words? Are you a burden or a tool for Christ? These are questions that we need to answer honestly.
The world is full with negativity. The last thing we need is more of it. I challenge all readers of this blog to answer this question honestly:
AM I HURTING OR HELPING THE KINGDOM BY THE WAY I TALK?
Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I challenge you to be an inspiration to everyone in your life. Talk them up, not down. Lift their spirits and not their worries. Plain and simple…let us all stop using our words as knives.
