Romans 12:12-21

Romans 12:12. “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. 14. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 17. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20. On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

9 Pounds to Go

At a weight plateau, I was stuck for a few weeks. And now, perseverance has paid off and another pound came off. And I realized that even with 9 pounds left to go of my 50 pound goal, I fit into clothes I have been unable to wear since before my son was born, some 13 plus years ago. I also noticed that I feel great and have as much energy as I had then. And way much more importantly than any of that, I am obeying God with food and not fighting Him. And obedience in every area of my life makes me very very happy, peaceful and joyful nowadays. I am prepared to help and work or just rest for the Lord and that makes me very very happy. And even if years have passed, obedience is attainable and I am proof. Keep at it. Never give up. God is worth it!!!❤❤❤

Days of Serving

I enjoy working hard, adore serving others. I do this knowing that the majority of people kind of take for granted work done for them and pretty much think they deserve it. So why do I do it, knowing this? I figured it out, with God’s wisdom and help, that I work for and serve Him and He loves that from me. I am worshipping when I work. Sometimes whistling too, but always worshipping. Lol. And so it does not matter the state of the heart of the beneficiary of my efforts. What matters to me is my heart and that I am working for and serving God and my secret is my goal. Here is the secret… my whole big picture goal is to please God. And sometimes I please God by fasting and praying in quiet, sometimes praising through my voice and piano, sometimes painting, sometimes hard labor, sometimes spending time with a friend listening, sometimes teaching my children, whatever it may be. But when I want more than anything to please God, I have found that He is pleased and blesses me. Sometimes He blesses me in a tangible way but always He just gives me peace and joy and contentment and makes me feel so good. And now you know my secret. And feel free to adopt it and give it a test drive and you will like it. 😄❤
