GIVE THANKS BECAUSE WE ARE LOVED

GIVE THANKS BECAUSE WE ARE LOVED

IN Everything Give Thanks: for this is the WILL of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I Thessalonians 5:18     As I read this scripture above, one word jumps off the page, “IN.” I don’t know about you but I haven’t given the Lord thanks “IN” everything, situation, or circumstances I have walked through. Matter of fact, it has taken me years not to grumble, pout, wish away, pray away, murmur, or complain my way through them.  I often…

UNIQUELY YOU “Created to Complement Never to Complete”

UNIQUELY YOU “Created to Complement Never to Complete”

  Over the past few weeks in our series, Happily Ever After, we have talked about marriage and the myth we believed that marriage was created to complete us and make us whole. Hopefully, as we have explored this more fully, we now realize that marriage wasn’t created to complete us but to complement us. Only Jesus has and can make us whole! However, it was created for us to have partners and intimate companions to share our lives with…

Now the Lord God said, “It is not good (beneficial) for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [one who balances him—a counterpart who is] suitable and complementary for him.” Genesis 2:18 Amplified     From our previous blogs, we have discovered our purpose in being created, first, as Mature Sons for our Father to love and enjoy fellowship with, second, for our Lord Jesus Christ as His Bride and part of His family, and third, as a Holy Habitation for the Holy Spirit to live through and fulfill all the plans and…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Happily Ever After?” Part 2 – The Gift of Sonship

  In our last blog, we discussed how many of us grew up thinking and believing that marriage was created by our Father to make us happy, complete, and fulfilled. We discovered that marriage was never designed to complete us or fulfill the most intimate needs of our hearts… Jesus was. We also realized the strategies of the flesh only cause death, frustration, anger, rejection, and distrust in our relationships when our spouse doesn’t meet our expectations. To ‘Live Happily…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Happily Ever After?” Part 1

If you are like me, I grew up with the belief that marriage was going to make me whole and complete. Just think of all the fairy tales we read, all the movies we’ve seen, and in the end, the couple lived Happily Ever After, right? But is this true? I talk a lot about this in a series I blogged in 2018 on the story of Cinderella called, Surrenderella; read her story when you get a chance. SURRENDERELLA Part 1…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “The Lessons of Patience?”

From our last blog, we discovered that our Father, Makes Everything Beautiful in His Time. My question use to be, “Why Lord are you taking so long?” Have you ever asked that question before?   Your body is in pain, your marriage is in trouble, your children are not walking with the Lord anymore, you are having problems at work, you are deep in debt, or you are in some deep emotional distress. It can be a million and one…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “The Members of the Body of Christ”

TEACHING MOMENTS – “The Members of the Body of Christ”

Once upon a time, the parts of the body were having a serious conversation. Each part was trying to determine who was the most important. The eye was the first to make its defense, it said, “Well, you know I have to be the most important part because without me you will never know where you are going!” The hands replied, “We will just feel our way around through life with me!” The mouth said, “No No! You both are…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Are We Living for Time or Eternity?”

REMEMBER OUR BROTHER DEMAS   Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there comes a falling away first (from the faith), and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (Amplified)   TIME OR ETERNITY   Today’s blog is a little more serious because all around us, we hear messages not congruent or in harmony to what was passed down from the Apostles of old. Some are…
