Focus and Re-Focus On Me

Standard

Take a moment to think of all God has done for you. Have you ever written them down? Have you forgotten any? God changes us when we take time to focus on Him. Anything that takes our focus off of God can become a hindrance. Taking time to sit and pray with God is precious time that grows our faith. Taking time to read scripture and see how God has worked in the lives of others and how He can work in our lives is powerful. 

When we are going through something difficult, we can remember the scripture that says “If God is for us, who can be against us?”. That means God is bigger than our problems and our enemies. That is probably one reason why we are told to pray for our enemies. When I take the time to pray for my enemies, that helps me remember that they are human too. The only sliver of downside that I find is when I start praying for my enemies, some of them start to pop up out of nowhere(like calling or texting me). That is annoying. So even though I haven’t figured out what that means, I continue to pray and delete those out of my phone(who are still in there for some reason). 

Shalom and Blessings

Walk Peacefully

Standard

     Everyone knows that we can go through life like a breeze or like a tornado. We have a choice. No matter what comes our way, the way we respond and choose to live speak volumes. Does it hurt us to live in peace and patience? No, it can just be really challenging sometimes. 

     There are a lot of things that I don’t have patience for. When I am in a mood or in a non patience moment, I have to rely on God to see me through. His will for my life does not involve drama or strife no matter how easy it seems for me. He desires for me to be calm and let His love fill me. 

     Shalom and patience to you 🙂

His Presence

Standard

When do you feel God’s presence? When you are alone? When you enter church? God’s presence is with us always(even when we don’t feel it). When we draw closer to God, we can feel His presence wash over us with love. When we don’t feel it, we can seek His face. Spending time with God through prayer and devotions, is one way to draw closer to Him.

Do you feel God’s presence today?
