Social media can make a Christian feel alone

In this world of social media, everyone knows everything; or at least everyone knows what you put out there. We see our friends and family posting beautiful care free pictures and we think to ourselves “gosh, I wish my life was as good as theirs.” We ended up liking the post or picture and we begin to feel down and out. Soon that feeling turns into a feeling that no one can relate to the problems we have.

This is the time when it’s important that as a Christian you have someone you can talk to…someone who share your level of love for Christ. Life is tough already and traveling this life alone just makes it that much harder.

Have a great evening. PJSLB

Laura Story – Blessings

In a hectic season in my life, Laura Story has been a voice of reason. PJSLB

We pray for blessings

We pray for peace

Comfort for family, protection while we sleep

We pray for healing, for prosperity

We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering

All the while, You hear each spoken need

Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops

What if Your healing comes through tears

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom

Your voice to hear

We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near

We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love

As if every promise from Your Word is not enough

All the while, You hear each desperate plea

And long that we’d have faith to believe

When friends betray us

When darkness seems to win

We know that pain reminds this heart

That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments

Or the aching of this life

Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy

What if trials of this life

The rain, the storms, the hardest nights

Are your mercies in disguise

Pause in everything in life

I remember when i was a child, life was just one long (and I mean LONG) day. Waking up in the morning was always a drag, school days were long, and by the time you are home from extra curricular activities you now have a full night of homework. Finally, end of day only to repeat again tomorrow.

As an adult there just doesn’t seem like there is enough time. I need 30 hours to do everything. I just feel so rushed. It’s in these times the words of TobyMac mean more. Sometimes in life we just need to slow down and take things at face value. Working less on emotion and more on knowledge may help make life just a little less hectic. Be loved and be blessed today.

The forming of my patience – Day One

Well, yesterday was the preverbal kick in the pants. I always talk about my relationship with Christ and have wrote on this blog on all the times that God has come thru for me. The truth is that after a while, my faith has gotten a little stagnant. I dare to say that i have been taken Christ for granted.

As we all enter the last days of 2018, i challenge all of you (and myself) in a recommitment to Christ; remembering the way we felt when we first accepted Jesus as our lord and savior.

“Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” (James 1:3-4, NKJV)
