Bible Break

When we start the day and any little breaks in the day and before we go to sleep, Bible reading with prayer is the best thing ever you can do. It helps you, it brings God close to you, it makes your life richer, it encourages you, it empowers you to help yourself and others, it reminds you of your hope in heaven, it checks your heart and corrects, and so many good things. Here are some brief examples:

Psalm 10:14 “But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.”

Habakkuk 3:17 “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, 18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. 19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.”

Revelation 22:20 “He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.”

Remember to read your Bible and pray. It is good and imperitive for your eternal soul and well-being now and later.πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ

Light in Your Day

Today, no matter what is going on, good or bad, the light of your day is Jesus Christ and prayer to Him is the best and quickest way to bring that light to you. Bible reading also brings that light in. And when we have that close relationship with Jesus, we are the light because we radiate His light. It is beautiful!πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ

Hard Beginnings and Good Endings

I think this is so many people’s story. This is all Christian’s story because life on this planet is riddled with people against God and troubles like mine has been but when we humbly accept salvation from Jesus Christ and begin a relationship, eternal life with Him begins then. While on this earth, we will still have trouble but we have hope and eternal life will continue when God one day pretty soon remakes everything without the sin and evil.

So even if things have been pretty yucky in life, that never has to be anyone’s eternal fate. There is hope in Jesus Christ and it is all laid put in the Bible for us. Praise God!πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ

Shaking a Fist at God

This imagery has been brought into my head lately. Whenever we insist on doing what we want- and for years as an addict I did this so I speak from experience- we are pridefully shaking our fist at God. We are saying we want what we want and don’t want to hear what our loving Creator wants from or for us. We are praying our will be done rather than God’s will be done. We are screaming that we know better than almighty God, who made us.

God brought me, loved me, into recovery, into humble submission to His plan. Jesus bought with His own blood and cleaned me up inside and out. I am not who I was and I am free now and joyful, I have peace. All this because I have accepted His plan for me and humbled myself to accept love and grace. It is so very beautiful! I am so thankful! Praise God!πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ
