Best Use Of What You’ve Got

Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.

Robert Louis Stevenson – 1850-1894 – Scottish Novelist

Life is what you make of it! You can make lemonade out of your lemon, or you could just sit somewhere gloomy and dark licking your lemon! Your choice!

Choose you this day whom ye shall serve – Joshua 24:15

Are you serving your heart aches, or serving the Lord through your pain?

Getting Back Up! Life Curve Balls!

When the enemy knocks you down, he expect you to stay down. The moment you attempt to move, to try to get up, it will attack you ferociously, just like bears. Friends, when life situation and circumstances knocks you down, get back up!. The wicked one does not want you to get back up. Countless will want you to play dead, silently existing, almost forgotten by life. You’ve got to make up your minds friends to get back up against all odds.


The enemy will want you to play dead so he can gloat over you. Remember your Savior Jesus Christ made a public spectacle of the devil always, that will help you to summon up courage and the will to get back up. Colossians 2:15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. micheal-jordanYou can do it. Don’t you dare accept defeat! You are born a warrior, a champion, a success, an achiever. You are a child of the Most High God! Get back up and get going in the right direction. Don’t let nothing keep you down in any areas of your life. Live for Love! Live for God!!


Shalom! Shalom!


Forgiveness! Peace! Growth !

2 Corinthians 2:1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.2:2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? 2:3 And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more 1 sam2 30abundantly unto you.2:5 But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.2:6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.2:7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.2:9 For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye are obedient in all things:10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 

Friends in the household of God, what we have all failed to realize is that hurting one person ultimately hurt many. Treating an individual as a scum bag sends a signal to others that it could be me next.  When one person is hurt in a group, that person becomes a loose screw, the group becomes disjointed just like pain on a thumb affects the whole body.

We should let healing begin right within us so that those other souls Christ is bringing into our midst find a vibrant abode to be nurtured rather than an infected and cantercarous community.

We need to affirm and reaffirm love for Christ by loving, caring and respecting eachother. It is the right thing to do! This is the only way of peace, joy and prosperity- by prosperity I mean growth- spiritual snd physical, fruitfulness and vibrancy in our community.

Oh Father, how you must have looked upon our ignorance.  If only we knew what you have in store for us! The growth in all spheres, peace, joy, signs and wonder. The heavens you have opened above us, Lord help us in your mercy to discard every weight of disobedience so we can receive that which you have given to us. Dear Lord our Father, we are your children, help us, help us to know the right thing to do and grant us the grace to do it. Let your agape love reign supreme in our hearts in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Love God! Love Others!
