Blessings! A Hindrance?

How hard indeed for those of us self sufficient, high achieving, self absorbed individuals!

The Christian walk is a faith walk and only those with a faith like a child – childlike belief in the totality and simplicity of the gospel without embellishments that will reap the rewards of The Kingdom.

Lord, in your mercy make me a child in my faith. Help me to be logical but not to the point of trying to make sense of your Word.

Forgive me Lord for always questioning you. I mean every single time, I question and reason with your instructions, I mean you want us to come together to reason together, to wipe of our sins – Isaiah 1:18.

Let my intelligence, my skills, talent, and the wealth you bestow on me not stand in the way of my believing, and acting on your Word promptly I pray in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Get Over It! Self!

Jesus looked at him and loved him.One thing you lack,” he said. ” Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.” Mark 10:21

Jesus sees the pitiful state of our hearts and yet loves us deeply. We hold unto things so much so, that we lose focus of why we are saved. We must not focus on ourselves too much less we become an idol unto ourselves.

This is a call to step out of ourselves, to think, act, and live from the premise of “The collective”, God’s Kingdom.

Following Christ, being a Christian is a personal relationship with Christ, however, it is also for the good of the collective, to bring All people – Nations to Him.

Lord help us to step out of our own needs to look into the needs of others. Many are dying hopelessly Lord, help us to point them to the cross I pray.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Are You Good?

Mark 10:18-19 Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. No one is good – except God alone. You know the commandments:

….

….

Everything is summed up by your attitude, and behavior to others. How kind-hearted are you to the plight of others? How generous are you with what is yours? Your time and resources?

How easy is it for you to acknowledge something nice, and note worthy about another? Do you complement others goodwill?

The Simple things done on a daily basis, your actions and reactions tells of your “goodness”, a reflection of the fruit of the Spirit!

Take a look within, look up, and ask for help! Be transformed

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Receiving The Kingdom!

“Let little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:14&15.

Jesus then took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

What then are the characteristics of children?

Children are kind, generous, loving, trusting, moldable, flexible, sensitive, expressive, open, genuine, simple, void of pride, judgement, and manipulation.

Children are forgiving, do not bear grudges, nor gossip, or oppress, they are simply an image of what we need to be in-order to receive from the Lord!

Father Lord, let the child in each and everyone of us wake up to the fullness of your grace in Jesus mighty name Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

We Stand Secure!!!! In His Love.

You stood in our stead

On the cross at Calvary

Bearing the weight of our guilt

You nailed it to the cross

You! Lord Jesus gave us life

Radiant Glory Of Love

prettyblueheart-KopieWhat a joy to be in the presence of the Most High God?

What a privilege oh  Lord to stand before you?

What an honor to be called your child?

You who created the heavens and the earth!

You created everything that was, is and is to come

Yet you love us and ours with an unconditional love

You became flesh, took up human likeness

You stood in our stead

On the cross at Calvary

Bearing the weight of  our guilt

You nailed it to the cross

You! Lord Jesus gave us life

And more abundantly

Accept us Lord as a living sacrifice unto you

Let our life’s bring you glory

Let us be used Lord to shine forth your light

Let the light of your countenance shine in and through us

Let us shine in the dark

Let us glow in the light

Glory and honor oh Lord

Belongs…
