Are you a Offender?

Image
     I don't think a Christian should make it their mission to offend others, and then be proud of it.  Our speech should always be with grace, seasoned with salt. Our conversation should be Christ centered and pointing to the resurrected life of the empty tomb.

     I would hate to think that I said something to make someone so offended that they stumble and fall away from the grace and glory of God. No where in the bible does it say that we are to offend our brother or sister in Christ but to wash their feet.  The greatest among you will be their servant.

     I myself have been so offended by people in the body of Christ that it made me turn away from serving God. While it is true that we should not have our eyes on people in the first place, we should lead them back through our own repentance, leading by example of bowing before the presence of the Father in heaven.

     Some people twist the truth of offending others and then make great boasts that their group or church is bette…

Moving on Up...

Image
     How can I help others to move forward in their walk in Jesus Christ?  That seems to be the theme of this blog as stated above.  It is my desire to help others through my writing. I pray that God leads those people to read my blog who are ready to get up off the ground level and move on up in their relationship with God.  If one person is moved and encouraged to get back up with the help of God, then His will has been done.

     All of us have our seasons of successes and failures. That doesn't mean that we are failures.  Many of us are troubled with complications and addictions. Some of us struggle with severe illness. What ever has come against you or got you down. I want you to know that you can pull forward with God's help. Nothing in this world and flesh can stop you from going forward.

Hebrews 12:1-3 Since we are surrounded by so many examples of faith, we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially sin that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ah…

In Memory of Jason Hubal

Image
     This is a time of honoring his life and to rejoice for Jason Hubal who has been set free from the shackles of this life...

"Jason was a friend to many, and this is the way I want to honor our friendship.."


     We spent many hours chatting about everything under the sun...our chat windows were always open. I cannot wait for the day that we meet in Heaven. He is gonna get the biggest "Bubba Hug!!"


"There is nothing I can say or do, but give the spotlight to you Jesus."

For it was you, Jesus who gave Jason and I this precious time of friendship...  

If it were not for you Jesus we would have never crossed paths... 

     We would have never known the presence of each others company either when we were chatting or when we were quiet, Jesus was always there in our chats...

     These songs are dedicated to you my brother and my friend. 

Nothing or no one can take away or diminish our friendship...ever. 

You are in a much better place. I will miss you a lot, but I …

Do you trust in the Blood?

Image
      The life flow that ran through the body of Jesus Christ, who was sacrificed at the cross of Calvary did not dry up in a grave and is no more.  The most powerful force that can ultimately free us from the chains of sin and death did not die forever. It is alive forevermore and through it we obtain our deliverance and salvation. It is the blood of the Jesus that washes us and gives us victory over sins.  

     As the song goes,"Oh the blood of Jesus, that washes us white as snow!"   The blood is like soap to our souls.  It is a deep cleaning agent of all our sins and impurities. Its cleanness is compared to the whiteness of snow.  When we accept Jesus into our hearts, His blood goes to work. We can rest in faith in the finished work of the cross of Christ in our heart.

God showed us that Christ is the throne of mercy where God's approval is given through faith in the blood...In his patience God waited to deal with sins committed in the past. Romans 3:25

Our past life ha…

Into The Presence of God...

Into The Presence of God
I want to see His Smile like the sunshine on my face...
I want to feel His tears as raining flowing down my cheek...
Oh the joy of seeking the face of Jesus and being united with Him...
of hearing His voice singing as sweet as the birds...
feeling his warmth as he shelters us with the presence of His love...
in the shadow of the Almighty I will take my refuge in Him...
