Don’t Shrink back , be bold!!

Hebrews 10:39 “But we are not those who shrink back and are destroyed but of those who believe and are saved.”  

As a child I had a horrible step father.  My mom married him and we moved away separating my sisters and I from our beautiful family.   Abuse victims are like that they get separated from their support system and ultimately get very hurt.   That happened to my mom,my sisters and I.     We are all very “get it done girls” on the out side, yet inside being a victims of prolonged abuse, many issues arise like addition, co-dependency and self esteem issues….    The thing that helps me the most is “Christ Esteem”.  I try to remember I am the righteousness of Jesus Christ.  He takes my sins and removes them as far as the east is from the west and remembers them no more!! He gives me in exchange for my sins His right standing with God!!    When I remember I am the righteousness of Jesus Christ , His most treasured procession. I can lift up my chin, look up and “keep on keeping on” in His direction.     I thought by my age I would have conquered my emotional response to things  and walk boldly in faith always.   I’m humane and will struggle here in this life , tell the day I go home to Heaven. That’s the sanctification process.πŸ˜‡.  Continually needing to TRUST in our Lord.  I have the assurance of Faith.  Today  let’s be confident in our standing with Jesus.   He’s got all of lives in His capable hands.   We do not need to shrink back but go boldly forward to His high calling!πŸ˜‡πŸŒΈπŸ™πŸ¦…❤️

Do it with sincerity of ♥️

Do you ever know what to do and not want to do it?  Ephesians 6:5 " Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but like slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord,not men. ".   When I read these verses it reminds me that it’s not enough to do the right thing, but to do it wholeheartedly.   My attitude can be off when I focus on my fleshly desires.    If I do the right thing with the wrong heart, what is that?   Here’s my prayer today;  “Lord help my heart be sincere toward you, let me want what you want for me and do what you want me to do with a sincere heart.  Through Jesus name, Amen.

Is anything chocking His word out?

Mark 4:18 "Still other, like seed sown among the thorns hear the word; 19 but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word making it unfruitful. 20 Others, like seed sown on good soil hear the word accept it, and produce a crop----thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown."      I have been convicted that I can let "other things" take the place of letting Gods word implant within my heart.   I've been listening to Andrew Womack he suggests meditating on the word.   Imagining the word true in your life.    I think I have a problem imagining the wrong things.    Today I am hoping to pick a verse and use it as my intentional meditation all day long.     So I can be in this world but not of it.    Hope this helps you tooπŸ˜‡πŸŒΈπŸ¦…πŸ™

The only Way is inclusive not exclusive!!

John 14:6 " Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me." John 3:16 " For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life."   Jesus is the only way, some people say this is exclusive but it's inclusive everyone, whosoever that believes this will be saved. ( Dr. David Jeremiah pointed this out on Turning point on today).  This is a basis of our faith Jesus is the way, the truth and the light.  He knows every struggle we go through.   We can concentrate on our struggle or we can concentrate on our Jesus, He's got this!!!   He knows, He cares He is our way!!

Run, with the feet of a deer!

Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of the deer; He enables me to stand on heights"

   Habakkuk 3:19 "The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights."                          The Lord make my feet like the feet of a deer and takes me to the heights!!!    I remember the first time I felt the Lord strengthen my legs, my knees were shot; I was never able to do more then a trot but that day…..for some reason my running was a gazelle.  I remember it vividly today!  There is no question in my mind, He was the one helping me run.   I use these verses when I am racing to remind me His strength not mine.   Life is a race. Sometimes I need His strength to simply stay in hope.    Good news... He is ever present making our feet like that of a deer even if we are walking slowly, or still lying in bed.  We can go to great heights through the powerful gift of Jesus!!  Let Him help you run todayπŸ˜‡πŸ¦…πŸ™πŸŒΈ❤️

Wait in hopeful anticipation

Isaiah 40:28-31 "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the Earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom.  29 He gives strength to the weary, and increases the power of the weak.  30 Even youth grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like Eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."   

Soar like an Eagle πŸ¦…!   Many things happen that can make me feel trampled.  But I have not been given a Spirit of fear but that of hope.  I can only see my perspective.  God see how all things work together for His glory. Today I chose Hope!   I chose to wait on the Lord and renew my strength for whatever He gives me nextπŸ˜‡πŸ¦…πŸ™❤️🌸.

Control the chatter!

2Timothy 2:16 " Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly."    Godless chatter can happen in my head.  I can go over and over about things that can really mess me up.    When I focus on lack or my inabilities those are the things that grow.   I become defeated before I even get my day going.   When I set the talk or chatter in my head to be based in hope and trust I can and do have a productive day.   1 Timothy 6:6 " But godliness with contentment is great gain."
