Be Prepared Get ready; be prepared! Keep all the armies around you mobilized and take command of them. Ezekiel 38:7 NLT This day week or month will bring you struggles will you be prepared? Will you roll up into a ball or Stand Strong?
God's Power is there in the Darkest Moments and Darkest of Days. As we approach Easter remember Christ came to save Us. But he also can and will save our marriages strengthen our marriages and give us an Awesome Life.
"So here is what I say to you. Ask and it will be given to you. Search and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened to you. Everyone who asks will receive. He who searches will find. And the door will be opened to the one who knocks. Luke 11:9-10 NIRV You have to knock if you want the door to open. Success takes action. Success takes persistence. Knocking once and saying oh it won't open won't work. You have to knock and knock again and scream and shout. Success will be seen in persistent massive action.
Seek Wisdom For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it. Proverbs 8:11 NLT In the book Traveler's Gift David Ponder is told to Seek Wisdom. He does not understand and so it is explained as surrounding oneself with the right people. Spending time with the right people. A key to this is to prioritize time with God. His wisdom far exceeds anyone else. It then is important to surround yourself with those individuals who you can help and can help you to understand and learn Gods wisdom.
The Finish is just the Beginning When Jesus had tasted it he said It is finished! Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30 NLT The Mission was Finished but it was and is the Beginning of New Life. When the driver gets the checkered flag or runner crosses the finish line it is just the beginning. The same is true for us. It is celebrating what has been accomplished like we will do this Easter weekend. It is learning from what was accomplished. It is taking what we have learned and developed into the next goal and challenge. Taking the power God gives us to Live an Abundant Life.
Anyone who farms his land will have plenty of food. But a person who chases dreams has no sense. Proverbs 12:11 NIRV There is nothing wrong with going for your dreams and goals. But you have to focus and see to the Finish what is before you. Constant change and running after every shiny thing causes distraction. It makes it difficult to follow a leader. Focus those other goals will come when the time is right.
Rejoice O people of Zion! Shout in triumph O people of Jerusalem! Look your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious yet he is humble riding on a donkey riding on a donkeys colt. Zechariah 9:9 NLT We all travel different roads. Sometimes there will be pot holes and sometimes there will be canyons in the road (also known as pot holes in WV PA and NY). Even on the rough roads we are not journeying alone. We are journeying with the one who took the journey we couldn't so he could be with us.
I looked to the Lord and he answered me. He saved me from everything I was afraid of. Psalm 34:4 NIRV F.E.A.R. = False Evidence Appearing Real Fear is paralyzing and can stop us from even starting or finishing. Think about this acronym. The biggest False Evidence Appearing Real that we face is thinking that we face the obstacles real or false alone. This is simply not true as this verse says God will save us so He is with us. -less
Keep fighting and chipping away at the obstacles in your life until you break through. Remember, the only thing you can not change or resolve is death! A bit dramatic maybe, but true. @theindependentmom
🐱👉🦁 If you threaten the freedom of any creature, it'll turn fearsome. I think that's something all species have in common, even humans. We are at our strongest when what we care about most is threatened.
