Love Letter To You And I!

This is a love letter to you and I from Apostle Paul. It is also a reminder of how we were, where we were, where we left, where we are now, and how you and I should conduct and comport our self. Here it is.

It will do you a lot of good to commit these words into your heart. I pray that the Holy Spirit will help you and I to imbibe what brother Paul is saying here.

Dear brothers and Sisters In the Lord,

17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 

18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 

19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.

20 That, however, is not the way of life you learned 

21 when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 

22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 

23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. 

26 In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold

28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.

29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 

30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 

31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 

32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Ephesians 4:17-32

Shalom!

This Journey! Life

On a journey, any journey, you are bound to meet different people, all kinds, on the stops, along the way, in the same vehicle, or just passing each other bye.

Please my friend, learn to regard humanity in all. Be respectful, polite, and treat everyone as if they are dignatories, for they truly are!

Some, unaware have met with angels and have ill-treated them for they were not clothed in purple. Moses in Median, a prince of Egypt, but a wanderer in Median.

While some, weary and lost, have met others along the path and have been able to direct them through the path they have just come fought from, while seeking for the path home themself. This is being selfless! Giving from what you have, when you lack what you do need!

Just thinking, that hiccup may as well be as a result of how badly you treated that person you thought was a nonentity. What is he gonna do anyways? I will get away with it! Note that someone is watching, and will repay, with what you least expect! Do good!

The people of Sodom brought wrath upon their city when they demanded to do the unthinkable with angels, they saw as mere men. May we not bring wrath upon ourselves, generations unborn!

Father, henceforth, please help us to treat everyone the way you treat us, with compassion, love, kindness, and tender care we pray in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Love’s Power To Heal!

Where would I be right now if my sins have not been forgiven? Where would I be without the assurance of love and eternity? No doubt that hope will be non-existent. I would be devoid of real joy, peace and happiness! But then I have those and in increments. I have been forgiven so much it is mind-boggling and I am very grateful!

forgiveness+12

I, therefore, promise myself today, by the mercies of God, to extend that which I have received to as many as requires it as long as I live. Holy Spirit, help me here for I cannot do it by myself! Freely I have received, freely I must give. Willingly so!!!

Forgiveness-is-God-s-invention-for-coming-to

I am very grateful for the fresh encounter I have daily with the person of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, dear Holy Spirit, as you reveal the heart of the Father to me daily, expose and uproot every seed of bitterness that may be hiding within mine heart also. Sweet Spirit of the Most High God, take permanent residence in my heart! May I not grieve you I pray in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Discernment!

This is why I turned from you my friend!! I love you, but I love God more than you! I cannot afford you coming between God and I! It is that simple!!

Radiant Glory Of Love

I Love You! Turn To Me!

Why will you not tell me you love me?

Why are you holding back from me?

Can’t you see how deeply I love you?

You have kept me at arms length all these years!

You have been doing all you can to make me change my mind.

It is too late!!!!!

My love!! There is nothing you can do to change my mind about you.

I love you with an everlasting love, don’t you know?

I came because of you. Yes, I did!!

Loving you wasn’t easy darling one!!

Loving you came with a price.

It was a costly price, very costly.

Yet, I was willing to pay!

You were that important and still is.

Absolutely important and cherished.

If I had to do it again, I would for you!

Yes, I would, but there is no need for it anymore.

The price of loving you had to be paid with the very essence of my being love.

My life had to be laid down for you once and for all.

Will you turn aside, glance my way, reach out, to touch me.

See the spot where I was nailed

My life blood gushing out

To cleanse you and make you whole

Feel my side love.

The last drop of blood was for you

It is still available even now

Come to me, let us be one with The Father

I love you

Me

Love Conquers All Ills!!!

Luke 6:27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

img_20161219_074243Friends, do you want to be loved? Then love another, give love! Love in this context is the agape kind of love, the love of Jehovah. You want to be understood, then understand another. You need a friend, be a friend! Do you want to shine like the stars of heaven? Then do not attempt to quench the light of another. You see love, iron sharpens iron! God has made humanity in such a way that we are interdependent! No single person can thrive and be effective in all areas of life without the input of another at every stage, phase of life.

We need each others love and understanding. We all crave to be understood for we all are a complicated work of art, woven majestically by the hand that is not of mortals. His ways are far beyond our ways.He has a plan for us and has apportioned each and everyone of us to specific tasks, scene, and phase and these overlaps. Absolutely!! God makes it so much that we are not self sufficient even though we act so, we are not!!!  God controls everything for He is sovereign and only when we realize this can we begin to function effectively with greater impact in that which has been apportioned to us.

The engine which drives us to the fulfillment of God’s plan and purpose friends, it also happens to be the greatest commandment is love! Love for God, love for self, and love for one another – Matthew 22:36-40. Love stops evil in its track ‘cos you will think twice if you would like to receive what you were about to met out/give. If we all think with the heart of love always, we would definitely act and react differently. 

Friends, will you begin to see also with the eyes of love? Then sow seeds that will yield love in your hearts. Watch your thoughts and you would begin to think differently, see differently, and act differently. Even as the scriptures admonish us in  Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Lord we thank you for loving us. May the light of your love continue to penetrate the recess of our heart until every and any form of darkness dissipate from our hearts. May we become truly an embodiment of your love, blessed to be a blessing, a conduit of the light of your countenance to all on our path to fulfilling destiny in Christ Jesus mighty name. Let the light of your love fall upon every heart and the words of life take root downward and bear fruit upwards in every heart. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Before You “Unfollow” – A Life Inspired!

 

“Jesus did not unsubscribe to people’s lives because they had issue. He did not look at the woman at the well and think, “There is just too much drama there. I think I will go elsewhere for water.” Jesus engaged her and I believe He asks the same of His children.

We need to engage those that believe differently. We need to engage those that are difficult and messy. We need to minister to those God puts into our lives, to demonstrate love to all people- enemy and friend”.  From A Life Inspired!

I am sure there are those that follow me simply because of the friend card (thanks for the support buddy!). Yet, the more and more…

Stone to flesh A Poem by Coyote Poetry Easy to believe in nothing. Needing only self-gain. Lonely death for a man who held wealth and power as God. Stone to flesh They say writers, musicians and artist must be mad men and women. They see beyond the falseness of the world lies and mockery. […]

Friends the Lord loves you and wants to do wonders in your heart and through you in overflowing measure. Will you yield yourself today?

Jesus calls you!
