“With the power of the Spirit, we are equipped to love our neighbor as ourselves today.”
I read this quote the other day and it stuck with me.
With all the fighting in the world that goes on, the disagreements, the hurt feelings…this is so important to internalize.
We have the power to love people. We have the power to love people as we would like to be loved. It’s there. We just need to tap into it.
Thanks, Mark – for the reminder, the motivation and the encouragement.
Have a great day. Go show some love to someone, while you’re at it. 🙂
“There is something in every work of art that points to the artist.”
These words were spoken at church today. Some good motivation in them.
We are all God’s works of art. But, do people see Him in us?
I was challenged by these words. If I say Jesus is my Savior…am I acting in a way that people would believe it?
Anyway, just a quick post today to pass this challenge along to you – but also to encourage you. You are God’s masterpiece! Go out and live in a way that glorifies Him. Treat other people in a way that points them to Him.
As it says in Matthew 5:16, let your light shine!
Have a great day.
“The attacks on your life have much more to do with who you might be in the future than who you have been in the past. The enemy fears you becoming who God has made you to be.”
Just a reminder today to ignore what the bad guy might be telling you: you’re not good enough, you’ll never make it, you can’t do this. Those are all lies.
Keep moving forward! Believe in your dreams and God’s destiny for your life. You’ve been put here to make a difference and you have what it takes to do that. Go out there and be a world changer – nothing is impossible with God by your side.
Have a great day!
How can you say yes to Jesus and not do what He asks you to do?
That was a question posed to a group of us the other day, and it just might make you think for a minute or two.
This really is a good question. We can say yes to Jesus by asking for our sins to be forgiven and saying that we’ll follow Him…but when it comes down to it, are we really doing what He is asking us to do?
Maybe so. But, maybe not.
This question has me thinking and has me praying that I’ll do whatever He wants me to do with this life. After all, it’s not mine, it’s His.
I get in the way so much by thinking about my plans, my this and my that. What about you? Is it His plan or your plan? Is it yes or no?
Hope this message finds you well. I’m believing in great things here and believing the same for you, too!
Have a great day.
Today is a gift…that’s why it’s called the present.
This is the only August 17, 2012 you’ll ever get in this lifetime. What are you going to do with it?
Are you going to spend it worrying about things that have yet to come or things that have already happened? Are you going to spend it thinking about how bad you have it and let it slip away without taking advantage of it?
Are you going to spend it celebrating the fact that you woke up this morning with a chance to make the most of your life, regardless of where you are or what your situation is, and that there are great things ready to be done that only you can do? Are you willing to give it your best today, no matter what?
I’m guilty of the former at times. I’m writing this today as a reminder to myself to make every day count and to always choose joy (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.) Maybe someone else out there needs this reminder too.
So, what are you going to do with your present? It’s your call.
Have a great day.
