Forgiveness

Colossians 1:14

In whom we have redemption through his blood even the forgiveness of sins.

How easy when we meet someone we think that the love we want or you just start dealing with that person because of lust or a situation cause you to stay with that person.

However, when we feel hurt in our heart because of that person, you have to exam yourself and go to the cause of why did I started that relationship.

At times, we want from that person what we are lacking within and we put expectation on that person to deliver what we think they should give us. However, when they do not give us what we expecting them to do, we call it hurt or they did me wrong.

Nevertheless, I have learned that someone cannot give me what he or she is lacking himself or herself. When looking for love, you first have to fine the love you need within you, you have to love yourself first. Because if you do not love yourself or know what love is, you will accept whatever is given to you. Nevertheless, until that feeling called LOVE does not feel good anymore we hold on to it, just from I do not want to be lonely. I have learned if the love you seek is not good to you; it is not good for you.

Forgiveness came when I had to forgive my children’s father my ex husband ; and understanding that I was with a man that could not give me that I deserved and I had to forgive myself for allowing him to treat me in that manner. Know I can truly say God has healed my broken heart; I can talk with this man and feel no pain from the past and look at him and say, you served your purpose; my children came forth and now you and I have to move on.

SITTING ON THE DOCK of THE BAY WATCHING……?

Hello World,

IMG_20171010_092843

I want to share this post with you, hoping that it will be a blessing if you are sitting on the dock of the bay watching your time go away. Just reflecting on my own life journey this morning and thinking about the dashes in the middle, yes the dashes to our next age. If you ever read the story about Moses in the bible, in Exodus you will see that Moses went through an unbelievable life journey every 10 years that lead me to start thinking about mines. Look at Moses, he went through life experience starting from his birth, to his purpose, to his end. So while life is still in you take a moment and think about the ______(dashes) to your every 10 years like my why’s, my what’s my when’s, my who, my where, also don’t forget my try not to relate to my how (how did I get here) and notice the word my it have ownership. This is an example chart I layout this morning to help me answer these same questions what happen in my dashes, so what does your dash say to you every 10 years? What is happening or did happen in your live every 10 years?

  • Birth _____10 years old
  • 10 years old_____20 years old
  • 20 years old_____30 years old
  • 40 years old_____50 years old
  • 50 years old_____now @ 56 Wow! _?_? ? ? ? 60 years old
  • 60 years old ____?????????__70 years old
  • 70 years old ____?????????__80 years old
  • 90 years old ____?????????__100 years old

If you haven’t quest as yet, yes I am now 56 years old and the _???_ are the dashes I have not experience yet. Therefore, whatever age you maybe think about your dashes, see how you can make life better for you future after writing your reflecting story in the dashes. Note as you look at your dashes, there can be some pains and tears but hopeful you can smile as well.

Remember this song by Otis Redding

Hope you can relate to this moment of reflecting on your life, and let it be a blessing. Nevertheless, before I go, someone post this quote on my G+ and I thought it would be nice to inspire you with it.

God is saying to you today.

 ”I know you have been struggling for a long time. Financially, spiritually, and emotionally you have a good heart and people have abused you in many ways. The devil has tried to make you lose your mind many times.

You have been betrayed in many ways…yet you stand in the midst of your storms. You are still here because I am with you. I will not allow any weapon that is formed against you to prosper. Fear not, I am going to turn things around and bless you in the presence of your enemies. Hold on to your faith.”

Continue being Bless, because you are GREAT and GREATNESS is in you!

The Goal

If you think success—- success has begun; If you think you can win, your battle is won! Whatever you need you can have, you’ll find: It’s all in the way you set your mind.

If you feel that your part in the world is small, You may never achieve your work at all; But feel that your life, of God’s life is a part— then you’ll work in the way you have set your heart.

If you know you are great, you will do great things; Your thoughts will soar on eagle’s wings; Your life will reach its destined goal, if you know the way to set your soul. —Kathreine Wilder Ruggles

Early this morning the words refocus, redefine and reform came back to me, as I was thinking about my goals . Let me share some of my notes I wrote down when I was reading REACHES WITHIN YOUR REACH —–By Robert Collier

All power is from within and is therefore under our own control.

Direct your though processes, you can consciously apply them to any codition.

All that comes to us in the world without is what we’ve already imaged in the world within.

The source of all good, of everything you wish for, is Mind, and you can reach it best through your subconscious.

When a man realizes that his mind is part of the God Mind, when he knows that he has only to take any right aspiration to this Universal Mind to see it realized, he loses all sense of worry and fear.

If you would remove discord, you must remove the wrong images–images of ill health, of worry and trouble from within.

Thoughts is a dynamic energy with the power to bring its object out from the Creative Force all about us.

You can call upon the Creative force at will. There are three steps neccessary:

First: to realize that you have the power

Second: to know what you want.

Third: to center your thought upon it with singleness of purpose

I pray that my notes so far was a blessing to you, and enclosing to accomplish thes steps takes only a fuller understanding of the Power-that-is-within- you.

God is my help in every need;

God does my every hunger feed;

God walks beside me guides my way

through every moment of the day.

I now am wise,  I now am true,

patient, kind and loving too.

All things I am, can do, and be,

Through Christ the truth that is in me.

God is my health, I can’t be sick;

God is my strength, unfailing,  quick;

God is my all;  I know no fear,

Since God, love and truth are here.

SACRIFICE WITHOUT A CONTRITE HEART

Gallery
CONTRITE HEART

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Ps. 51:17

God be the Glory on this day for this is the day that the Lord has made and we shall be glad and rejoice in it. The spirit of Lord was upon me this morning directing me to read Psalm 51.

 Psalm 51 English Standard Version (ESV)

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet went to him after he had gone into Bathsheba.

51 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being,
and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you. 14 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God,
O God of my salvation and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. 16 For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;  a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

18 Do good to Zion in your good pleasure;   build up the walls of Jerusalem; 19 then will you delight in right sacrifices, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

Wow, as I read this chapter the blue highlighted areas stand out to me and I had to ask God what are you saying to me, have I sinned against you God?

In my prayer time this morning, I was asking for strength to accomplish a goal for today; and then I said I’m just going to sacrifice and do it unto the Lord. As I start to study more about this chapter 51:6, You do not desire sacrifice: The key term here is the word desire, which means “to find pleasure in“. God’s pleasure is not in the sacrificed animal as was done in the old days, but in the restored person. He demanded sacrifices, even from David; but His pleasure, is the person who comes obediently to Him (Gen. 4: 1-7); John 4:21-24; Rom 12:1,2). Actions not accompanied by a contrite heart are not acceptable to God (Is. 1:12-20).

Let look at an example in:

Genesis 4:1-7English Standard Version (ESV)

Cain and Abel

Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, “I have gotten[a]a man with the help of the Lord.” And again, she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a worker of the ground. In the course of time, Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his face fell. The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted?[b] And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for[c] you, but you must rule over it.”

In chapter 4:4 Abel’s sacrifice was the best that he had to offer- the firstborn and their fat. There are no similar descriptive words for Cain’s sacrifice. That is because, Cain brought a token gift of his produce to the Lord, but Abel brought the very best. God respected or looked with favor first upon the person, then on his sacrifice (Ps.40:6-8). 4:5 Something deficient in Cain’s attitude was reflected in his offering. Instead of repenting of his wrongdoing like David ( Ps. 51), Cain became angry and, we discover, filled with jealousy (v.8).

In my conclusion

Psalm 40:6-8English Standard Version (ESV)

In sacrifice and offering, you have not delighted, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering
    you have not required. Then I said, “Behold, I have come;  in the scroll of the book it is written of me: 8 I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”

What I did gain this morning from the spirit of the Lord, the Lord takes pleasure in those who obediently come to him with praise on their lips (1 Sam. 15:22, 23). In addition, God want us when giving or helping someone, just don’t do it because you feel it look good in the eye of the Lord and now he is going to give you favor, but check yourself of the why.  Am I doing this with a good heart that has joy, love, peace in whatever you are doing?

God be the glory, may this be a blessing as it was for me. Continue growing, learning and sharing because there is greatness in you.

KIND of FAITH

KIND of FAITH

On Tuesday 7/19/2016, I had an experience that made me question myself. Are you using your faith, as you should? In addition, that inner power God has given you to call the things you desire. Three years ago when I was in Jamaica, every day I was living by faith and studying GOD PLAN FOR MAN, I learn that there are several kinds of faith mentioned in Scripture, that will be helpful in arriving at the kind of faith one should have. Hope this will be a blessing to you as a guide in strengthen your faith.

  1. COMMON FAITH (Titus 1:4). It is called “the mutual faith” (Rom.1:12). This is the faith that is common to all men who claim to be Christians. It is common because of the few commonly accepted truths held more or less alike be all Christians, such as belief in Christ as a Saviour and in eternal life.
  2. WEAK FAITH (Rom.4:19: 14:1-23: 1 Cor. 8:1-13). This is the kind of faith constantly limits personal benefits and privileges in the Gospel, due to wrong teachings and personal scruples concerning non-essentials of life.
  3. STRONG FAITH (Rom. 4:20). This faith is the kind that refuses to be defeated. It refuses to take no for an answer. It laughs at circumstances, symptoms, all outward appearances, and what is seen, heard, or felt, and it doggedly holds to the fact that what has been asked of god is granted.
  4. LITTLE FAITH (Mt. 6:30; 8:26; 14:31; Lk. 12:28). This is the same as no faith because it is the wavering kind (Heb. 10:23; Jas. 1:5-8)
  5. GREAT FAITH (Mt. 8:10; 15:28) This is the true, unwavering faith that will always move God to answer according to His abundant promises. (Heb. 11:6)
  6. UNFEIGNED FAITH (1 Tim. 1:5; 2 Tim. 1:5) This faith is the kind that knows no hypocrisy, sham, or counterfeit. The kind does not brag or put on an outward show that it is real. It is simply genuine, real, and sincere in its every aspect.
  7. TEMPORARY FAITH (Lk.8:13). This the kind of faith that believes for a while and springs up like a mushroom, but because of shallowness or lack of root, it fails in the time of temptations and test. They receive the Word of God with great joy, and it seems they are going to outstrip everybody else in faith, but after a few days or weeks, they disappear. On the other hand, if they show up it is in another revival meeting where their emotions stirred up again temporarily and they make another start in faith, soon to fall again.
  8. HISTORICAL FAITH ( 1 Jn. 5:10-13). This faith is in the history or the record of God concerning the past and concerning His own work for men. One can believe the record of God to the letter, but have not saved.
  9. MENTAL FAITH (Jas. 2: 14-26). Mental faith is similar to historical faith in that it believes history, but goes further and believes every part of the Bible, the past, present, and future, as well as all the truths of the blessings of God, but it does not act upon the Word of God.
  10. ACTIVE FAITH (Jas.2:14-16; Heb.10:19-38) This is the kind that acts upon Word of God as it is made clear. James put it this way: “shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”
  11. WAVERING FAITH (Jas. 1:5-8). This is faith doubting God and refusing to believe. A wavering faith is called double- mindedness, a constant change of the mind as to what is wanted or whether the thing asked for is what you want or not. It is the attitude of yes—no, yes—no, and yes—no, until God Himself cannot tell whether it is yes or no.
  12. UNWAVERING FAITH (Heb. 10:23; 11:6). This faith is taking God at His Word without any question. God commands us to “ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” (Jas.1:5-8)
  13. HUMAN FAITH ( 11:22-24). This is simply the exercise of human faculties in having confidence and conviction that he can believe God and that God is true to all that He has promised.
  14. DIVINE FAITH (Heb.11:3: Gal.2:20: 1 Cor. 13:14). Faith is not only a natural attribute of man. It, also, is an attribute of God. It is God’s absolute confidence and conviction in His own Being and Word.

In the book, GOD’S PLAN FOR MAN – The Importance of Faith, the author stated the Bible definitely declares that faith is all-important:

“But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for him that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Heb.11:6)

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Heb.11:1)

“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord” (Jas.1:5-8)

“Whatsoever is not of faith is sin” (Rom.14:23)

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye may be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked” (Eph.6:16)

“Cast not away, therefore, your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward…Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him” (Heb.10:35-39)

“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing ye shall receive” (Mt. 21:21)

“If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mk. 9:23)

“Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things, which he saith, shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them” (Mk. 11:22-24)

Studying  KIND of FAITH opened the next level in having faith, and I pray it will do the same for you. God Bless and continue to be GREAT because there is GREATNESS IN YOU.
