Do You Have Joy In Your Trial?

In this week’s blog. I want to focus on Jesus being ABLE To do ALL Things. This week I have to say I have been challenged even more in my faith.  My trials on earth are getting harder. I do know why this is happening. YES! I do know WHY! I may not like these trials but, it WILL not take all of my JOY from me. I have always been ABLE to praise God giving him the Glory in ALL that is going on. I am not a shy person at all.  When it comes to letting People (no matter where I am) know about my God (Jesus). I am a walking testimony. I will stop somewhere and will share about some life journey that I have faced never being alone. How Jesus has worked it out for his Glory.

Now, as you all may know. If you are or have been following my blog. You may know a part or some of my story-trials. I am losing my sight (Going blind), I have a $73,000.00 debt from my lovely job. I cannot seem to get any answers on how they will clear it up. (For it being there error). I have also quit my job because I could not take the abuse and bullying that my boss was giving me for the last 5 years. I am now getting ready to have my EEOC claim go to the next step. I am trying to be compliant to all of what they need from me. However, at every step of this process there is someone in these offices just wanting to give me there opinion. I am not asking for anyone to share in what they see. I just want to be compliant with what I need to do.  This is not as easy as one may think for, everyone seems to have some type of answer for WHAT I DID WRONG.  When all they need to do is there job. Letting the process and the correct protocol be done. As if that is not enough for one person to handle. I just got in a car accident just this week. Having to go to the hospital. This resulting in a miner concussion. You would think ok someone’s insurance will handle it. No, it has to be a bigger deal, than just someone telling their insurance company that I was in there car. Of course, that did not happen so now I need someone to help me with this battle. Well, the Devil may think he is going to keep me down. He may think I will not glorify my God in ALL of this. But I have to let you know I am on my knees more letting God know I know He is ABLE to work this out.  I will GLORIFY MY LORD ALL DAY LONG!!!

I do believe that the Lord lets the devil in to test you. However, it is so that Jesus can see how your faith is growing to bring you closer to him (Jesus). It is stated in the bible that the devil cannot do anything without the lord’s permission. So, devil lets go. My trial may be hard but, my lord and faith in him is greater. I am glad to be tested. TO show my lord I will follow him all of my days. I am glad that I am getting tested to know that I am getting closer to him. I will come out of this better off then I started with God getting the GLORY and MY TESTIMONY being larger for him.

Now with my story of how the Devil is trying to get a foot holed on my life.

Here is what I say to him.

DEVIL you will not win in this battle. I will rejoice in the lord like Habakkuk, God can test my faith like in James, and I will lean on john because Jesus took on the world. So Devil step back my trials are won by my lord and savior.  if you are in a trial I ask you to hold on to what my words are about the Lord working  it out. He is ABLE to do it for you too. Have joy while you wait on the trial to end. You will see the  other side of this and it will be better then it is. Jesus promises this. As I each week tell you my little story-blog. Please read and believe in him.  Romans 8:28 tells you that all things work out for them whom love the lord and are called according to his  plan. so , as I tell myself I will keep on this journey knowing my LORD IS BIGGER then my trial.  please do the same but , not for me but for your  faith in Jesus.  if he will do it for me. then I know he will do it for you. His words  are for you too I am no better then you.  We are all his children and he wants to be there for all of us.

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to you in faith as small as a mustard seed knowing that you have ALL of my trials. I pray that my readers, if they are going through some thing as well they take on this prayer. To know that you have died on the cross for our sins and with that because we believe in you we are saved by your Grace and having eternal life with you in heaven. I give you back your words in Habakkuk, James, and john. Knowing these truths set me free from the Devils lies of the world.

Habakkuk 3 17:19Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail     and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls,18yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. 19God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places. To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. James 1:2-5 Count it all joy, my brothers,[a] when you meet trials of various kinds,3for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.4And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.5If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him John 16:33“I have told you these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have troubles. But be brave! I have defeated the world!” Thank you for all of your words that we can lean on to see that you will work it out for your glory.

In Jesus name I pray AMEN!

Did You Really Stop To Think About This Verse And Your life?

Mathew 6; 25-26 says “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

 Today let’s really think about this verse. First of all, we take for granted alot. Some may even count out the words in the bible but I want you to have some food for thought. I will do so in just this bible verse.

Let’s say for a minute that the bible is only a book that was written thousands of years ago and it is just words on a page.  Now I will only think or let you have a minute of your time on that false statement. One minute because I do know that the promises of the bible are true. I will not let the devil in and so, let’s go on my thoughts on why you need to believe in the bible and Jesus being your lord and savior. Imagine this. This will not be to complex so, do not worry.

Imagine a tree outside maybe a giant oak tree in full fall bloom.  The wind is blowing so ever lightly. Now up in that tree you find a nest with say maybe 2 birds. A mother bird and a baby bird.  The mother bird is just going about her business gathering up stuff for her baby bird.  She does not tell her baby bird ok now I am going to go to the store and find food for us. She does not say how I need to find a job to take care of all of our needs.  The mother bird is not telling her baby bird well this world is filled with good and evil.  They are just a part of nature. Do not think of this image as a cartoon that Disney made. Just look outside and see what nature is bringing to the forefront.   they have no bird cell phone to gossip on, no credit cards or liquid cash, grocery stores, no bird corporate jobs to go to. They cannot even speak to a human to say hey I am homeless me and my baby bird are going to go hungry can you give us a job, money, shelter   food, or can I use your phone to call a friend so we do not die or lose everything we have.  Now let say it even gets worse for the 2 birds that are in the tree that we have imagined. The wind kicks up and the clouds in the sky have gotten dark. Let’s even throw in some great thunder and lightning.  Ok we get to go inside our homes or maybe in this image we knew the weather was going to get bad so we had an umbrella. We even saw the morning news that told us there was a 65% of really bad thunder storms. Birds do not get the local TV. Wait they can’t even go to there local store and buy a 60 inch TV.  Maybe, you are getting my point. But let’s keep on this track.  Now, the birds feel the weather change and the mother bird does not say ok baby bird now start packing all of our stuff.  Need to worry they just fly off in to another location.  In this storm in that tree their home is destroyed and all of the matter that was collected is rained on, there is No bird cell phones to call daddy bird at work. They just keep on moving and GOD our heavenly father that created all (even the birds in the air) just keeps them moving with nature. WOW!  Now they did not skip a beat the birds just moved on and all was, and is still right in their world.

 Here is another kicker about these birds. NO one shares how good the Lord is to them. That Jesus is even there for them. However, He says in this verse He takes care of them. Therefore, again I say

WOW!!  Trust in his word.

So, why can we not learn from them and trust the word of God? It is funny all we have to do is look outside and see that the word of God. Is true and faithful but, for some reason we want to make it more complexed.

So again look at that bible verse. With a different set of eyes.

Mathew 6; 25-26, look at the top of this page to see it again.

He has you . No worries. Trust in his words. That old book written thousands of years ago still stands TODAY.

 

So, all I ask of you is today.  Just find the bible in your home. I am sure you may have one. Maybe it is on that nice book shelf that you bought years ago. To put all of your books, collectables on, or now just a place where all of your unused items go. So, I ask you to find it dust it off and crack it open.  Start reading it.  Or if you do not have a bible. You can even take your fancy overpriced cell phone and find a great Bible app. Pick a time each day. Spend time in the Word of god.  I promise you whatever you are going through there is a story for you to fall on. If you have never even opened this book. Do not know where to go to. I will pray with you at that minute to ask god to help you find the right promises and words to read. To watch you grow in your faith. Do not question just read and keep on reading. Yes, this book will fully fill your life. I also promise, no one can ever do this like the word of god. I can promise you that. It is the only promise that I can make to you. GOD IS REAL AND TRUE. He promises that to you.  That will start a great journey for a better life an eternal one with the lord. You cannot get one better than that. I also ask you if you do not have a good bible based church that you find one to help you spiritually grow in the lord.  Now, I also have to let you know the promises of god are all yours but, there is only one condition. This condition is not one that is hard or that I have made up. It is in the bible as well. If you are not a believer of Jesus Christ.   The promises are there for you but, you will not be able to reach them

PLEASE!!!! Do not let that stop you from reading his word for I tell you the truth. As you diligently read a little each day and ask God to help you know him. All types of doors will fly open for you. He will help you get to know his  word and his Son.   I am sure buy the time you have spent some time with him. You will want to be a believer in Jesus Christ. If you are not sure how to do this. I will help you in doing so as well. 

Ok here is how to become a follower of Jesus Christ. Let’s pray.

Read this aloud.

Dear heavenly father,

I do believe that your son Jesus Christ has died on the cross for me. He did so to take away my sins. I ask you today to bring him in to my heart and make him my lord and savior.  Thank you for putting him on the cross to take away my sins and give me grace each day through him.

In Jesus Name I pray Amen!

WELCOME!!!!! To the Family, You are now a new person in Christ.

You may ask again, what do I now do. Well, find a good local church, a bible based one. Take a few mins each day and grow with Jesus by praying to him and asking him to help you grow in him with in his word. This is one thing you will never regret doing.  You can start with in your bible reading chapters 1 and 2 of Ephesians. Read this book in the New Testament. Look as you read who you are in him, as a child of god.   As a new creation in Christ. Now, that yu are saved. The only other thing that I can share with you to do is get the book by Dr. Tony Evans. It is called Life Essentials. This book is a good one it will help you grow in your walk with the lord.  He shows you, Dr. Evans the truths of being a child of god.  He shows you how spiritual growth works. I can promise reading, studying the bible, praying to him each day, and finding a local church will help you in your walk with Jesus Christ.

Dear heavenly Father,

Thank you! For your words to us via the bible. Giving us, easy inside to how you care for us. Showing us how we can trust you and not worry about what is going on with us. By seeking you in your words. I thank you also for anyone that just prayed the prayer to believe in you. I know you will show them the way.  Thank you, for letting us have grace by your son.  Today, I pray that all that have read this blog. Your words not mine show them the way to you and the truth you have for them. How just Mathew 6:25-26 shows how simple your words are about what you will do for us. Thank you for that. Also thank you for John3:16 that tells us what salvation is. That we will have everlasting life with believing in your son.  

So, with all of this.  I give Jesus Christ all the praise and glory  for what you have done for us.

In Jesus name AMEN!
