No, you did not get that memo, because God is FULLY in control and I have wonderful news, sweet friend!! God ALWAYS will be in control! When I wake up the first thing I do every morning is turn over, unplug my phone that is on my nightstand and go through my emails. I am signed up for all kinds of news posts to be sent to my email, and I don’t have to tell you, the news seems to get worse daily!
I began to notice not long ago, first thing in the morning, I would feel a sinking feeling on the inside. I then would roll out of bed half mad and half disappointed and my feet had not even touched the floor for the day! Before I began the habit of reading the news first, I would get out of bed thanking God, and now I seem to be asking, “God, what is happening??” and feeling utter dread and despair. Before I can even get a cup of coffee, my day seems to be starting out anything but joyous. This is NOT me, nor does it reflect my personality.
I have ALWAYS lived my life centered around God and His word. I have found myself living my life centered around the news of the next imbecile thing our government does that only reflects the interest of about 13 per cent of America’s population! Can you feel me getting frustrated again? Why? Because my focus has become more “man” ward than God ward!
I thought getting off of Facebook for a couple of weeks would help me, but of course, the emails kept coming. I spent more time in prayer, but my prayer time seemed frenzied instead of peaceful and confident. Have you ever watched the fights on television? Hubby and Kate love them. I can’t stand them! But, for this occasion in life I can relate something from them.
Before a big fight, they get both opponents on camera and they talk all kinds of silly mess. How one is going to pummel the other one, they aren’t the champion they are, how they have more fights under their belt, etc.. It just goes on and on like that. But I have noticed there is always one that doesn’t do all of that trash talking. They talk about what is necessary to focus, train, and to be ready when the time comes. Rarely, does the one who talked all the garbage wins! It always seems to be the one who kept their mind focused on the positive and necessary things, instead of all the smack talk that walks away with the prize!
It is just like that with the devil. The devil will ALWAYS show you how bad things are! The headlines will be negative. The statistics of the economy and all that is happening to weaken the country more and more will follow. One story after the other of utter negativity and hopelessness from one news agency to the next seems to be all too available!
Your emotions become involved…I have never seen anybody happy to hear bad news! You begin to feel sullen and whipped! You see no way of it changing. Then the Holy Spirit begins to speak. “What about Me? What about all of the places in the word that promises you, you are the victor no matter what you see around you? What about all the examples of when I sent My Word and performed mighty acts on behalf of those who put their confidence in Me instead of circumstances?” Oh, thank God for the Holy Spirit!!!
I don’t deny our country is in a mess! I don’t deny that even hopelessness, anger, and a spirit of offense has tried to trickle into the body of Christ due to it! BUT I DO DENY ITS POWER TO ADVERSELY EFFECT ME AND MINE!! God is my stronghold!! On Him I CAN depend!! My enemies may come at me one way, BUT THEY SHALL FLEE SEVEN DIFFERENT WAYS! What does that mean? When they see you armed with the Word of God, joy is overflowing, and you know the FIGHT IS WON BY JESUS AND HIS VICTORY OVER THE CROSS WAS YOUR VICTORY, TOO THEY CAN’T “SPLIT” FAST ENOUGH!!
I am going to post a Psalm for you and for me! It is the guarantee of what I have told you! I am putting it before my eyes several times daily!! Here is the memo! YOU ARE VICTORIOUS! NOTHING THE DEVIL PLANS WILL PREVAIL AGAINST YOU! STOP BEING AFRAID AND CONFUSED! DON’T BE OFFENDED (you forfeit power and the ability to be used of God as He wants to use you when you do!) AND YOU WILL SEE YOUR LIFE FLOURISH AND THRIVE IN THE WORST OF TIMES! GOD LOVES YOU, AND NOTHING CAN CHANGE THAT FACT!!!
Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness (that which is not upright or in right standing with God).
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.
6 And He will make your uprightness and right standing with God go forth as the light, and your justice and right as [the shining sun of] the noonday.
7 Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; fret not yourself—it tends only to evildoing.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait and hope and look for the Lord [in the end] shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the evildoers will be no more; though you look with care where they used to be, they will not be found.
11 But the meek [in the end] shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plot against the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright in right standing with God); they gnash at them with their teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at [the wicked], for He sees that their own day [of defeat] is coming.
14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows to cast down the poor and needy, to slay those who walk uprightly (blameless in conduct and in conversation).
15 The swords [of the wicked] shall enter their own hearts, and their bows shall be broken.
16 Better is the little that the [uncompromisingly] righteous have than the abundance [of possessions] of many who are wrong and wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the Lord upholds the [consistently] righteous.
18 The Lord knows the days of the upright and blameless, and their heritage will abide forever.
19 They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil; and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs [that is consumed in smoke] and as the glory of the pastures. They shall vanish; like smoke shall they consume away.
21 The wicked borrow and pay not again [for they may be unable], but the [uncompromisingly] righteous deal kindly and give [for they are able].
22 For such as are blessed of God shall [in the end] inherit the earth, but they that are cursed of Him shall be cut off.
23 The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].
24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.
25 I have been young and now am old, yet have I not seen the [uncompromisingly] righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread.
26 All day long they are merciful and deal graciously; they lend, and their offspring are blessed.
27 Depart from evil and do good; and you will dwell forever [securely].
28 For the Lord delights in justice and forsakes not His saints; they are preserved forever, but the offspring of the wicked [in time] shall be cut off.
29 [Then] the [consistently] righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.
30 The mouth of the [uncompromisingly] righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks with justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
32 The wicked lie in wait for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and seek to put them to death.
33 The Lord will not leave them in their hands, or [suffer them to] condemn them when they are judged.
34 Wait for and expect the Lord and keep and heed His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land; [in the end] when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen a wicked man in great power and spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil,
36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was not; yes, I sought and inquired for him, but he could not be found.
37 Mark the blameless man and behold the upright, for there is a happy end for the man of peace.
38 As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together; in the end the wicked shall be cut off.
39 But the salvation of the [consistently] righteous is of the Lord; He is their Refuge and secure Stronghold in the time of trouble.
40 And the Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they trust and take refuge in Him.
Now that is a memo!! Blessings, precious reader!! I will see you soon!
God‘s will for you is healing. No place can you find in the Bible Jesus denied ANYONE a healing! There isn’t one incident where Jesus did not heal. It says in one place He could do no miracles in a certain town, EXCEPT FOR A FEW HEALINGS due to their unbelief. Even in the midst of unbelief, Jesus still healed! Healing is an abosolute with God!! You may say, “Well, Juliana I know of people who weren’t healed. If it was God’s will then why didn’t it happen?” Because we don’t know what that person believed for themselves in their heart of hearts. For all we know they may have wanted to go on home to heaven and God answered their prayer, which wasn’t for healing but to be with Him. In any case, don’t let the enemy bring questions to your mind about God and His Word…it only will cause confusion. Trust the Lord, sweet reader and leave the rest to God! He is faithful!! It is the devil that is the author of confusion. If you are confused, it isn’t God talking! Jesus is the prince of peace, not confusion and fear!
I have recently had friends who have been diagnosed with cancer. Without a doubt, I know my friends are healed and whole and the healing will manifest soon! If you have been diagnosed with any disease at all, I am posting these verses that show God’s will is healing and health for EVERYONE who will believe Him for it!
My prayers are with you, precious reader! Do not lose heart! God loves you and He hears your prayers!! Pray these verses and believe them no matter what you see. What you see is temporary! God’s Word and the effects of it are forever!! He said He stands by His Word (Bible) to PERFORM IT, not to deny it (Jeremiah 1:12)!! AMEN! That just makes me want to shout!! God bless you, precious heart! Please, let me know of your miracle! Others in the world receive hope from miraculous testimonies. If He does it for one, He will do it for ALL who believe for He is no respecter of persons!!
We all want good things to happen in our lives, but too often we want it now…not later. When it doesn’t happen that way, we are tempted to ask, “When, God, when?” Most of us need to grow in the area of trusting God instead of focusing on the “when” question. If you’re missing joy and peace, you’re not trusting God. If your mind feels worn out all the time, you’re not trusting God.
The tendency to want to know about everything that’s going on can be detrimental to your Christian walk. Sometimes knowing everything can be uncomfortable and can even hurt you. I spent a large part of my life being impatient, frustrated and disappointed because there were things I didn’t know. God had to teach me to leave things alone and quit feeling that I needed to know everything. I finally learned to trust the One who knows all things and accept that some questions may never be answered. We prove that we trust God when we refuse to worry.
God wants us to live by discernment—revelation knowledge, not head knowledge. It’s difficult to exercise discernment if you’re always trying to figure out everything. But when you’re willing to say, “God, I can’t figure this out, so I’m going to trust You to give me revelation that will set me free,” then you can be comfortable in spite of not knowing. Trusting God often requires not knowing how God is going to accomplish what needs to be done and not knowing when He will do it. We often say God is never late, but generally He isn’t early either. Why? Because He uses times of waiting to stretch our faith in Him and to bring about change and growth in our lives.
We spend a lot of time in our lives waiting because change is a process. Many people want change, but they don’t want to go through the waiting process. But the truth is, waiting is a given—we are going to wait. The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way? If we wait the wrong way, we’ll be miserable; but if we decide to wait God’s way, we can become patient and enjoy the wait. It takes practice, but as we let God help us in each situation, we develop patience, which is one of the most important Christian virtues. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit (see Galatians 5:22). It’s developed only under trial, so we must not run from difficult situations. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing (James 1:4).
As we develop patience, the Bible says we finally feel completely satisfied—lacking nothing. Even our relationship with God involves progressive changes. My relationship with God is so much different now than it was in the early days of my Christian experience. It is not nearly as emotionally exciting…and yet it is better. Every change I’ve gone through has made me more mature, solid and well-grounded. We learn to trust God by going through many experiences that require trust. By seeing God’s faithfulness over and over, we let go of trusting ourselves, and gradually we place our trust in Him. Looking at it like this, it is easy to see how timing plays an important part in learning to trust God. If He did everything we asked for immediately, we would never grow and develop. Timing and trust work side by side.
God gives us hopes and dreams for certain things to happen in our lives, but He doesn’t always allow us to see the exact timing of His plan. Although frustrating, not knowing the exact timing is often what keeps us in the program. There are times when we might give up if we knew how long it was going to take, but when we accept God’s timing, we can learn to live in hope and enjoy our lives while God is working on our problems. We know that God’s plan for our lives is good, and when we entrust ourselves to Him, we can experience total peace and happiness.
The book of Genesis tells the story of Joseph, who waited many years for the fulfillment of the dream God had given him. He was falsely accused and imprisoned before the time came for him to do what God had shown him he was to do. Exodus 13:17-18 tells us that God led the Israelites the longer, harder way on their journey to the Promised Land because He knew they were not yet ready to go in. There had to be time for their training, and they had to go through some very trying situations. They wasted a lot of time wondering about God’s timing, but God never failed to take care of them and show them what He wanted them to do. The same is true in our lives. It was many years after I received my call from God in February of 1976 before I finally began to see major fulfillment of what God had called me to do. God’s training period simply requires us to do what He tells us to do when He tells us to do it…without questioning or trying to figure everything out.
Proverbs 16:9 says, A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure. Proverbs 20:24 says,Man’s steps are ordered by the Lord. How then can a man understand his way? When God directs our paths, He sometimes leads us in ways that don’t make sense to us so we’re not always going to understand everything. If we try to reason out everything, we will experience struggle, confusion and misery—but there is a better way. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. This sounds so simple, yet too many people make the mistake of trying to figure everything out themselves. Most of us have spent our lives trying to take care of ourselves, but when we accept Christ as our Savior, we must learn to trust our lives to His care. When we do, we can say with the psalmist, …I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. My times are in Your hands…(Psalm 31:14-15).
First Peter 5:5 tells us that …God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)—[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble. Anyone who thinks they’re a self-made man or woman has a rude awakening coming because Jesus said, …apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing (John 15:5). Humility is a covering that draws the help of God into our lives to protect us. When we humble ourselves by saying, “God, I don’t know what to do, but I’m trusting You,” God gets in gear to help us. God won’t allow us to succeed at anything unless we’re leaning and relying on Him. But when we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, in due time, He will exalt us (see 1 Peter 5:6). “Due time” is God’s time, when God knows we’re ready, not when we think we’re ready. The sooner we understand and accept that, the sooner God can work His plan in our lives.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us: To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven. This lets us know that we all don’t live in the same season at the same time. You should never be jealous of someone who is enjoying harvest while you’re still in the planting season. Remember, they had to go through a season of planting just as you are. Seeing the results they are enjoying should be an encouragement to you. Understand and trust that God is doing the very best for you in your present season. Seed time represents learning the will of God. Each time I choose God’s will instead of my own, I’m planting a good seed that will eventually bring a harvest in my life. If you want to be victorious, you cannot afford to get pulled into the world’s system, doing what you feel like doing. James 1:21 tells us what we should do: …get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls.
Your soul is your mind, your will and your emotions. When the Word gets rooted in there and begins to change your mind, it begins to heal your emotions and turn your will away from self-will and onto doing the will of God. Living out of one’s own soul is equivalent to staying in the wilderness. When my flesh is finally crucified and I get out of my soul and into doing the will of God, that’s when I enter the promised land. The promised land is knowing who you are in Christ, knowing how to fellowship with Him, enjoying His presence, and having peace, contentment and joy. Between seed time and harvest comes a time of waiting. After a seed is planted, the heat, moisture and pressure of the ground finally cause the outer hull to crack open. Then roots shoot down, digging their way through the ground. It takes time for this to happen, and it takes place underground. Above the ground, you can’t tell anything is happening. That’s the way our lives are. After we plant seeds of obedience, we feel like nothing is happening, but all kinds of things are happening inside where we can’t see. And like the seed that finally bursts through the ground with a beautiful green shoot, our seeds of obedience finally break forth into a beautiful manifestation of God in our lives.
When harvest time comes, the desires of your heart begin to manifest—bondages fall off of you and you see your dreams come to pass. You see your kids changing and your family getting saved. Prosperity, favor, promotion, honor, and all kinds of good things come out in the open where they can be seen. In harvest time, more than ever before, you hear from God, you enjoy His presence, and you’re led by the Spirit. Blessings begin to chase you down the street, and joy and calm delight become your normal mood. Are you tired of waiting for harvest time in your life? Are you frustrated, crying out, “When, God, when?” Then you need to understand that God’s timing is often a mystery. He doesn’t do things on our timetable. Yet His Word promises that He will not be late, not one single day. But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day! (Habakkuk 2:3 TLB).
God causes things to happen at exactly the right time! Your job is not to figure out when, but to make up your mind that you won’t give up until you cross the finish line and are living in the radical, outrageous blessings of God! The more you trust Jesus and keep your eyes focused on Him, the more life you’ll have. Trusting God brings life. Believing brings rest. So stop trying to figure everything out, and let God be God in your life.
This article is taken from Joyce’s DVD teaching, I’m In a Hurry and God’s Not.
We are in the process of selling our house. We have lived here since 1991. My children were raised in this house. Every Christmas, birthday, and church family celebration they have lived and experienced, for the most part, in this house. When I found out I had a buyer for it, part of me was thinking, “Well, you have really done it this time!!” but the other part of me (the spiritual side) said, “Trust God. He knows what He is doing and He has never let me down!”
Today we are to the point in the selling of the house where an inspector comes and goes over your home with a fine tooth comb making sure all is in order. He and the buyer were coming from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.. Kate and I slept in the travel trailer because we are night owls and 9 a.m. to us is your 5 a.m.!
At some point my husband had come into the travel trailer and, as I raised my foggy head, he told me they were gone and he was going back into the house. The thoughts of worry, the questions of had we done the right thing, where on earth will we go, all began to flood me. Kate was still asleep and I grabbed my phone and decided to look at ‘pinterest’ for just a minute, just to be sure I was really ready to hit the floor for the day.
When I opened ‘pinterest’ the picture you see at the top of this article was what was showing. The first words I saw were “It will happen”. I could not believe my eyes! The reason this is so significant to me is because, normally when I open this application, I see many pictures. They are usually of the latest fashion trends, home decor, recipes, etc.. They never just show one picture.
I opened this picture up completely to see it better and then I saw, “He wiped away my tears….” Again, I remembered the crying fest I had, had yesterday as I was packing the house for storage and the many tears that had fallen days before. I ran into the house and told my husband what happened (after I explained ‘pinterest’ to him).
I went to my laptop and opened the picture on the bigger screen. I didn’t want to lose one word!! As I was looking at all the inspirational pictures this particular pinner had from Matthew, hubby popped in a Kenneth Copeland CD. As I looked at ‘pinterest’ and listened to the CD, the Lord began to speak to me. “In order for you to gain, sometimes you have to lose something. But, when you lose something know what I am bringing is so much greater than the thing you lost.”
It is so opposite of our worldly western society. In our society the more you want to gain, the more you “hoard”. Some people refer to this as saving, but I see a great deal of hoarding going on that has nothing to do with saving! In the Bible it says if you want to gain, you must give away. In order to be exalted, we must first humble ourselves before God, not push our own agendas and press toward worldly goals, slapping and stomping whoever may get in our way (Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. James 4:10). Also, we must be sure we are not striving to be exalted for our sakes, but to exalt God! If we don’t, then we are headed for arrogance! In order to receive God’s forgiveness, we must give forgiveness to others, not try to protect ourselves through offense with our own walls that imprison us. To love we must give love, to have friends, we must first be a friend. It is in the GIVING the GETTING follows!
I am giving up my home, although it is a wonderful home, God has not just what is good, but what is best for us! I want God’s best and to be in His perfect will! Although the course of our lives are changing, I know it is leading to a greater destiny and the path, though unfamiliar, is one I must let God lead as I blindly follow in complete trust! He is trustworthy and whatever it may be will be glorious.
No matter what you have lost, precious reader, whether it has been a business deal, a home, or even more seriously a relationship, keep the good that was there. Keep memories, lessons learned, and realize in the letting go God will return back to you greater than you knew possible! Trust God’s goodness and stand on His word until you see it fulfilled.
Oh, and a little “P.S.” here…If it was a relationship you lost by someone walking away from you and never looking back, hit your knees and praise God! It is better to find out early who your “fair weather” friends are than later after you have confided things, trusted them and held them close to your heart only to be betrayed and hurt later. Let people go when they walk away. If you did something, apologize, ask forgiveness, get it right with God and then you go your way in love. You are truly better off without them in your life. Their temper would have caused chaos for you later! Realize the problem lays within themselves and not in you! Just a little FYI to spare you unnecessary hurt! Again, loss is gain…your gaining of peace and simplicity afterward, rather than drama and stagnation, will yield great happiness!!
God bless you, dear reader!! I will see you soon!
Amplified Bible (AMP)
22 Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven!
23 Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a human king who wished to settle accounts with his attendants.
24 When he began the accounting, one was brought to him who owed him 10,000 talents [probably about $10,000,000],
25 And because he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and his children and everything that he possessed, and payment to be made.
26 So the attendant fell on his knees, begging him, Have patience with me and I will pay you everything.
27 And his master’s heart was moved with compassion, and he released him and forgave him [cancelling] the debt.
28 But that same attendant, as he went out, found one of his fellow attendants who owed him a hundred denarii [about twenty dollars]; and he caught him by the throat and said, Pay what you owe!
29 So his fellow attendant fell down and begged him earnestly, Give me time, and I will pay you all!
30 But he was unwilling, and he went out and had him put in prison till he should pay the debt.
31 When his fellow attendants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and told everything that had taken place to their master.
32 Then his master called him and said to him, You contemptible and wicked attendant! I forgave and cancelled all that [great] debt of yours because you begged me to.
33 And should you not have had pity and mercy on your fellow attendant, as I had pity and mercy on you?
34 And in wrath his master turned him over to the torturers (the jailers), till he should pay all that he owed.
35 So also My heavenly Father will deal with every one of you if you do not freely forgive your brother from your heart his offenses.
There are things the Lord has shown during my time of prayer that I, again, am going to use my blog to keep a personal journal to note. I am learning so much about myself, and that I am not alone in some things I thought. I have heard others who have had some the same misconceptions I have had.
One of the main things I hear from people who refuse to go to church, much less become part of the body of the church, is there is such hypocrisy in the church they want no part of it.
I find it funny there are hypocrites and gossips and backstabbing in the workplace, yet these same people never think twice about going to work! They show up everyday, give their job 110 per cent, and hold their hand out for the paycheck and start over the next week. Where is the hypocrisy now? How sad, and what a tremendous misconception. Just because someone goes to church and/or is in church leadership does not put that person in a glorified body that cannot make a mistake! People are still people until we die and go to heaven.
A true Christian and true Christian leaders are still in a natural body, just you and I are, and just as you and I are capable of messing up, they can also make mistakes, misjudge situations, and not always walk in full wisdom. They are going to sometimes say and do things that aren’t the wisest things to say and do, BUT that is the way with ALL people!
I use to be of the attitude, as naïve as it is, that if you were a “leader” you were above mistakes. I put unrealistic expectations on people and got hurt and disappointed many times because I have yet to find the perfect person, especially in myself! If I can give grace and mercy to myself for MY shortcomings, failures, and missteps then I must give the same mercy and grace when others aren’t perfect. Where the hypocrisy comes in is when I don’t give the SAME mercy and grace to others that I heaped richly upon myself.
There are things people have done that could have easily been an offense with me. I may have been misunderstood, but in their shoes, would I have misunderstood the same matter? Would I have felt and reacted the way they did? Nine times out of ten the answer has been yes, I would have. Should they have chosen that reaction? Nine out of ten times, no but I was no better! Things look much different from other perspectives. Don’t let offense in, not in the least bit!! It will deplete your prayer life of God‘s power and eventually change you to someone you would never want to be!! Satan doesn’t come to make you better! He always comes to destroy you, your future, and all good things in your life and the good things that were to come! That is why the Bible calls him the thief!
When sin is purposeful, known, and enjoyed that is one thing, but when someone errs in judgement of what is the best thing to do or not do, say or not say, that is a very different situation entirely! Be a person known for great grace and great mercy! That is what I pray to be, too!
Blessings and grace to you, dear reader! I will see you next time!
