All you need is FAITH

Daily Devotional 10/15

on October 16, 2016

“We can redirect the negative thoughts we often receive by revisiting the moments when we sensed the Lord’s nudging. Reliving the moments of pure excitement we experienced when we felt the prodding of His Spirit will extinguish uncertainty that tries to creep in to steal our joy. We may have to travel down memory lane many times during our wait. Ashley had to make the trip several times throughout her ten-year pause, asking for God’s clarity and assurance.” – Wendy Pope

Don’t allow the devil to steal your joy! I have been on occasion in the depths of self-loathing and feeling down, life situations, relationship issues, etc, and have let them lead me down a path I didn’t intend to, letting a pity party turn to a depressive state, allowing my joy to be turned. That’s not what God intended for me! He has so much more great things for me and I shouldn’t allow something I don’t and won’t have control over to steal my joy! He is the all powerful and WILL make everything better, it’s all in the timing and being patient. Get in the Word and focus on what He has to say to you in the good and bad moments of our lives! 

“Here’s the thing—I should have prayed and read my Bible, but not to work my way back into God’s good graces. He is a gracious and merciful God. My praying and Scripture reading do not make Him more gracious. Somewhere along the way, I’d convinced myself otherwise. God makes us wait at times so we can glean valuable lessons. But He never does so out of spite.” – Wendy Pope


Shame… healthy and unhealthy shame….

Healthy is basically making a mistake and asking for forgiveness and or apologizing for what happened, unhealthy is when that person doesn’t ask for forgiveness and or you don’t repent and you ALLOW it to eat you up! Don’t let this keep you down! We are all human, we make mistakes and we are going to be imperfect! To expect a person to have perfection is idiotic and down right unimaginable! We aren’t Jesus! We aren’t God! We aren’t going to make everything right 100% of the time and nor should we want to, some of the mistakes I have made in my life have attributed to a learning experience and or a time in my life that was much needed! Forgive yourself, repent and forgive others of their trespasses and let God give you the grace He LONGS to give you, for his grace is sufficient

“Healthy shame reminds us that we are imperfect human beings with weaknesses and limitations. It reminds us that we need God. Unfortunately, when the healthy shame doesn’t stop there, it becomes unhealthy and poisonous. When a person doesn’t ask for or receive forgiveness, they can punish themselves and start to hate who they are.” – Joyce Meyer


Sin is the result of emotional distress and disappointment…. 

Sin happens, it’s in our past, our present and will be in our future. Its inevitable. We can’t change what’s happened, what is happening or what will happen necessarily, but we can rely on the main source that can helps us to identify what and how we respond and or help us to change some of the sinful behaviors…. GOD

“Solomon is saying that, as a human being, it seems pointless, because we cannot change the past and we cannot control the future. All the stuff that we’ve done wrong, we can’t undo. All the stuff that was done wrong to us, we can’t undo.” – Rick Warren 
Don’t give up on what God CAN control for us… the world may be broken, we can only fix so much of it, but our job isn’t to fix the world so much as it is to bring people to Christ and allow them to make the choice, a CHOICE that will either effect them eternally in a way that we’ll be face to face again or we won’t…. ashes to ashes and dust to dust… were human… we have NO superpower, but we can pray for our city, friends, family, schools, politicians, etc, and that’s our limitations so to speak…. Fight Spiritually…. Go to God on behalf of those that aren’t connected to God….

“Because this is not Heaven. Everything on the planet is broken. Nothing works perfectly because of our sin.” – Rick Warren

God bless you friends! 🙏🏻
