Live Life Loved and Loving

Life is worth living when we know we are loved and appreciated. Know today, that you are loved (by God and many others) and appreciated by those who know your true value and worth. Extend the love today and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, everywhere you go–especially at the restaurants many will visit after church :-). God is good all the time and all the time He is God!

I Am All That

How many times and how many ways have we heard someone attempt to undermine everything we do?  People tell their kids, when they are still too young to make a difference, but old enough to allow what someone said limit their futures; “you ain’t nothing, you’re stupid, you’ll never be nothing, you just like yo daddy, you just like yo mama, you ain’t going nowhere in life” and then wonder—why as adults, people do not try to do anything positive.  A lot of negativity in anyone’s life can inhibit people from attempting to reach their full potential in life, but there is more to life than what “people” say.

A life (for any one of us)—no matter who it is, can be grounded in Christ and soar into the heavens, accomplishing all that  God says we can and we can be all that  God says we are.  How about that!  No one can hinder the blessings we have received from our Father, but us.  And will we get in our own way?  No!  Will we sit and do nothing, allowing the enemy to win in our lives?  No!  Will we fight the “good fight of faith” and stay in position to receive all that God has said?  Yes, we will because we are all that!

If you don’t believe it, just sit back and hold onto something or someone who won’t move or waiver under the mighty promises of God.   Open your eyes to see, your hearts to receive, and get your feet ready to march to the tune of victory—in Christ Jesus as we march through His Word to see who He says we are!
