There is so much going on these days, running here and there trying to get things accomplished and then going on to the next project or task. But you know sometimes we need to stop and take time for someone who may need us to talk to.
God has been teaching me this lately. I walk the dog everyday and just about run past neighbors because I have to get back to my office to do more work, I’m learning that I can just work a little longer or be more organized so that I can give people the time to talk.
Today, I am speaking from my heart, give others time. Yes its precious to you, but it matters to God that you embrace time with each other even when there is no special need except a listening ear. Sometimes you may be put in front of someone just so you can encourage them or give an encouraging word. I’m telling you, I live to please God and if He is directing me to spend time , just a little extra time with someone-I’m there! Do you pay attention to His call?
How much do you depend on the Bible for your truth? There are people who have not ever picked it up and read it, understood the meaning of it or even think that it has an everlasting value to their souls.
How can we as loving and devoted Christians bring the word of this truth to others? How can we allow bad behavior and lack of morals to penetrate the youth that are entering classrooms and blackening minds? How can cursing in class or disputing the existence of God or even thinking that trashing others is the right behavior. it’s WRONG!!!
There must be a way to encourage the lost youth of today to read the Bible. how do we convey this message in such a lost world as theirs when we know the way, the truth and the life through Christ our Lord!
2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
How do we sustain the patience? Look to Jesus for comfort during the turbulent times, you can’t do it alone, you may think you can… but as you rely on Jesus more and more what seems unbearable becomes bearable! Rejoice, you are growing!
When all is well we just go through our time and walking through our day. But do we listen to the voice of God as He calls you so softly and sweetly by your name? Are you listening to the Holy Spirit as He guides all your steps and teaches you deeply all kinds of lessons and deep learning you need to do? These are the things we are to remember… Be grateful in all things, when I think that things just happen because they happen, it’s then that the Holy Spirit reminds me to be grateful to God for everything as He is providing, teaching leading, multiplying His Gifts.
But what would you say to someone who thinks that these gifts and call are not from God? How would you answer them? This is a question that I hope whomever reads this Blog post will step up and give their reply. OMEN
