Three easy steps to forgiveness

How can I forgive ______ for doing _________ to me? 🤷‍♀️

Three easy steps to forgiveness:

1. Do unto others… forgive others as much as you wish to be forgiven for your transgression/debts. (Matt. 7:12) We all deserve death for our own sins, (Rom. 1:32) but it was Jesus Christ who forgave us, who made it possible to live, so that we may live with Him. Luke said we should PRACTICE forgiveness. (Luke 6:38) I do this while driving! Where can you practice forgiveness?

2. They know not what they do (Luke 23:34) Which also means the people who hurt you did not know what they were doing either. People are deceived by the world to think evil is good and when they are tempted, they fail. How can we empathize with our transgressors? How can we know what their mind was telling them? The truth is, when we partake in evil against another, any evil, we are deceived! How can you practice understanding what may have happened to your transgressor to cause him/her to sin against you, in order for you to more easily forgive them? Perhaps understanding more about why people sin will help. The bible has many illustrations of people sinning against others and there are many present-day stories, articles and examples to research to gain understanding.

3. Forgive and forget. When we repent of sin, our Father in Heaven forgives us, in fact He states again and again (Isa. 43:25; Heb. 10:17; Acts 3:19; Heb. 8:12) that He FORGETS our sin. The last step is for us to do as our father does and forgive AND forget the transgressions. Yes, FORGET! When we choose to forget, the hurt, anger, sadness and shame cannot manifest in our mind. It will not re-enter and re-injure our hearts. God knows what happened. He is our vengeance, our redeemer, our restorer. Give the burden to Him and allow yourself to forgive and forget the sin. When we do – we choose Him instead of sin and gain our freedom.

The enemy wants you to never forgive and/or never forget. It’s how he keeps a foothold on your life. When you decide to let go of hurtful moment in your mind, you choose to heal your heart of it as well. You let go of resentment, bitterness, revenge and hatred and a hardened heart.

So now it is up to you. Can you practice forgiveness now? Are there grievances in your heart you want to let go of now? Forgiving is giving, so break chains today – and watch your blessings of peace, joy and love be given to you ten times what you had lost. 🕊

You are loved! ❤️

Luke 6_38

Did you know❓

If you’ve solved or conquered a problem in your life – you have now become a leading expert at helping others to do the same for their life. You can now help others through a potentially life-limiting problem! People are waiting for your help. Perhaps you have the best method or a valuable breakthrough idea for others to conquer theirs too? Is something getting in your way?

Hate the fear! Perhaps you are awesome at how to raise well-adjusted, life-ready kids and others can learn from you. Maybe you have started a business and can help young entrepreneurs start theirs? Or maybe you battled an addiction or a problem with mental illness? Conceivably, you are still on the journey but have made great headway into a reformed life or mindset and have ideas to share with others just beginning their walk?

Destroy the doubt! You are hereby given the appropriate title 👑 to begin helping others through whatever life trial or tribulation you survived. You are also qualified to teach it to others. If it worked for you – it can work for others. Once you learn – teach!

Where can you teach? You can start with your friends, family, an outreach or a local church. Plug into whatever they are offering and volunteer for service. Lose the worry! You will not regret it – it will alter your life in amazing ways!

Preach the good news! Luke 4:18 ❤️

Stuck? 🤦‍♀️

Wow, 2020! It’s a new year! January is a tough month though. It’s the month after Christmas, so the days are long and optimism for what’s next is low. It’s the middle of winter, so it’s likely cold and rainy, snowy, muddy or just plain cold. It’s also darker this time of year, so our bodies aren’t getting the refreshing, healing sunlight like the rest of the year. Perhaps, like many, you are also struggling financially from the bank account binge and purge December seems to bring each year. So – it is time for a restart?

You have a reason to live, today! Is there something that makes you excited that you haven’t done in awhile? Are there places you can visit in your city or region that have always called you but you have yet to see it? Are there people that you wish to see and share time with but always have an excuse to not contact them? Well, maybe it’s time? Maybe you need a sign from God?!

This is it! 🥳

Make it today. Make the decision to contact the people you want to spend time with today!

Plan on visiting local sites, restaurants, places, events, churches today. Recharge, refresh, renew, and reinvent!

Each week has seven “todays” in it. It doesn’t matter which one you start with, you simply should start.

Encourage your future self and your future relationships with the bravery you have to get out and restart life again, starting today!

Why? Because you are loved! ❤️

This is it“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8

Don’t panic, don’t worry, fear not!

We often think that worry, anxiety and panic are common and normal to humans. They seem so familiar to our society and culture that we don’t question the possibility that we can be free from these torments. While it is natural to feel these emotions, it is not normal to always or frequently feel them. Our bible gives several references to help us when we suffer from prolonged exposure to these negative states of mind.

Speaking from personal experience – I was completely healed of these types of disorders, including depression. They no longer effect me because I make a choice daily to let my mind stay on God and His word. I do have a prescription – it’s called the word of God – daily and often as needed. Meditating on it day and night and praying will give a person perfect rest, perfect peace, comfort and even joy.

So if you are experiencing panic, anxiety, worry, fear – open the bible. Read what it is that God says to do to keep your mind on Him, trust in Him and have perfect peace.

God is good, and Jesus Christ loves you! ❤️

Isa 26_3“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic. Isa 28:16

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Tim. 1:7

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matt. 6:34

‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isa 41:10

When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul. Psalm 94:19

Vision: We Are What We Eat

VISION: Last week I was out for a lunch and as I often do, I looked around for people to talk with or engage with while I have a chance to do so. You see, we are called to be friendly and kind to every one. While looking about, I saw an elderly man by himself. So every so often when I looked his way, he looked up but had no expression on his face and would not engage. I thought perhaps he was watching TV, but after a few times, I understood he just had wanted nothing to do with people. Then I pondered, why was this man alone? Where were his friends? Family? Why did he look away? And why do people alienate themselves in this way to be alone when the days are short, even while the people are many?

I briefly closed my eyes to ponder this with the Lord and I immediately had a vision. I saw the same man at the table – looking directly at me. Inside his mouth was a large bar of silver. He was slowly putting the large silver bar into his mouth for food. Then I came to realize, this elderly gentleman had replaced his relationships with money. He was alone because he did not care for people. He loved money. It became his idol, the thing he worshipped.

We often think that our lives don’t have eternal results. We do what we want when we want and suffer no immediate consequences. We like to believe our actions don’t hurt others and don’t hurt us. In truth, whatever we worship we become. If we worship money – we eat bars of silver or gold or cash. If we worship TV – we ingest TV and we start behaving like the characters on TV. When we worship idols, we become them. Wood, plastic, silver, food, sex, drugs, alcohol. We are what we eat – so we become what we worship; our idol.

What are you eating today?

We are here to help each other. To love one another. All things will pass away and no material gain or single-minded pursuit is worth your time or energy if it doesn’t help another. God put us here to take care of one another, not to collect stuff. It is our divine purpose.

Jesus Christ is the only way. When we worship Him, he prepares a table before our enemies. He ensures no weapons formed against us will prosper. He prepares our way by bringing the mountains low, the valleys level, and the crooked paths straight. He gives us perfect peace and He is our vengeance against our enemies. Because He loves us! ❤️

It’s just yoga!

yoga (n.)
1820, from Hindi yoga, from Sanskrit yoga-s, literally “union, yoking” (with the Supreme Spirit), from PIE root *yeug- “to join.” Related: Yogic.

There are many stories how a person became addicted to yoga, could never find relief unless they did yoga daily or had pain when they were unable to do the poses for yoga. In other cases, people were attacked spiritually after they began yoga or tried to stop.

As a Christian, your head should never bow to any other God, your allegiance is to Jesus Christ. Every yoga pose is an active pose to worship a deity (god, demon, prince) in India. It’s the slippery slope the bible speaks of in Romans 6:13 and 12:1-2, to remain righteous and holy; acceptable to God.

You are loved! ❤️

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.” 1 Timothy 4:4

Holy Spirit Warning

Holy Spirit Warning: Potential side effects of being saved by God!

NOTICE: Being filled with the Holy Spirit may give you strange side effects. These side effects include:

Saying unexpected things. You may begin speaking in tongues!

Losing control of your tongue: The hearers of the word may not like it though. In one case the utterance may be information that the other person finds offensive – like the truth. In other cases, the person may become angry and enraged, curse you and punch you in the face for speaking the truth into their life. It happens!

Examples in the bible show the Holy Spirit causing:
1. babies to leap in the womb (Luke 1:41),
2. people to prophecy randomly (Luke 1:67, Acts 4:8, Acts 4:31),
3. people to act as though drunk with new wine (Acts 2:13),
4. people led into the wilderness ( Luke 4:1),
5. people filled joy (Acts 13:52),
6. your wretched soul being saved (Acts 9:17),
7. rebuke a friend for having little faith (Matt. 8:26, Matt 17:20, Matt 6:30, Matt 16:8),
8. rebuke an enemy of God: calling them a liar, son of the devil, an enemy of all righteousness and subsequently blinding them! (Acts 13:8-10).

It’s crazy to the natural world. It won’t make sense to the wise, but people will call you foolish and possibly mentally disturbed. Rest peacefully in the knowledge that this is part of the experience of being truly saved and used by God for His purposes by being filled with His Holy Spirit.

So – if you are a Holy Spirit filled Christian, be prepared to endure! You may be persecuted for it. In fact, the bible states you WILL be! (2 Timothy 3:12) Count the costs, endure your cross, and welcome an eternity with your father in Heaven!

Spiritual Battle

Is your religion feeling more like re-legion? If you find yourself leaving your church service in worse spiritual condition than when you went in – you need a change!

I’ve recently visited a church that was seemingly rocking in the Holy Spirit, but some of the staff were in active witchcraft. Charismatic witchcraft is where people can use magic, rituals, spells or curses to keep people returning, attaching to the church or controlling the congregation in some way. This isn’t biblical and it is not of God.

Your church is divided in spirit if there are Christians actively practicing any form of witchcraft in charge of church operations or leadership – these evil spirits will be at home with you as well.

Blessings – you are loved! ❤️

Is your cup empty?

Vision: In a waking moment today, I saw a man with a beard dressed in biblical garments holding out an empty cup and Jesus splashed water into the cup until it was overflowing. Then I heard Him say “Shalom”.

God wants to fill your cup with living water so you can share it with the world. Put out your cup and be refreshed. Ask and you shall receive! Peace be with you! ❤️

“for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Rev. 7:17
