"In all things" not always for "all things"

....a simple Thank You will do for you what nothing else will do!!! It will change you from the inside out!!!

"IN EVERYTHING give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

If you are addicted to DRAMA and you want to cause certain people grief, pain, hurt and division, just be aware that Jesus Christ our Savior is greater than the words and actions of your flesh. So please feel free to dig your own pit and throw stones at others!!! "Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him."(Proverbs 26:27)
(For all of my friends out there that are being needlessly hurt by other people, it's really sad)

God has, is and will continue to use His Creation t

"And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great SIGNS shall there be from heaven.

And there shall be SIGNS in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;"
‭‭Luke‬ ‭21:11, 25‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Playing the cards you are dealt.....

That moment.....
1-When your trials are "white hot"!!
2-When your burdens are as heavy as the world!!! 
3-When you have "no words" left so your prayers are just tears running down your face!!!
4- When it's the worst day, week, month and/or year of your life!!!

God is closer to you than you can imagine but you don't feel Him, you don't see Him but He's as close as your skin!!!! It was then I heard God's Voice say....

"If you can FACE it and EMBRACE it for what it is then I will GRACE it and you can walk out of this DARKNESS THAT IS SMOTHERING YOU"

Embrace is that trying moment WHEN WE MUST FACE that we can't fix this, we can't handle this but it came to my door steps just the same so let "it" do what "it" came to do whatever that may be in 
your life!!!

"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." ‭‭(James‬ ‭1:2-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
‭‭(2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

Calling wrong, right....

If you maintain that something you've done is right even though it is wrong you are following your flesh not the Holy Spirit!! When this is happening it means that you think you are following the light but you are actually following the darkness because you are justifying your fleshly desire rather than facing the truth and crucifying the flesh!!! Our flesh can be very religious thereby blinding us to the TRUTH! Wrong doesn't automatically become ok just because you want it to and it makes you feel good!!

"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
(‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭5:20‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

"But if thine eye be evil, thy WHOLE body shall be full of DARKNESS . If therefore the light (guiding force) that is in thee be darkness, how GREAT is that darkness!" ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭6:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

Don't be deceived by your religious flesh because if your flesh has convinced you that "it's" ok, then you are in trouble!!! God have Mercy!!!

Where are you?

You will lean toward the path your mind is already traveling!! You will go where your thoughts take you unless you make a deliberate decision to say NO!!
If you do not read the Word and allow the Holy Spirit to work in you according to the Word you will soon lose sound Spiritual judgement. It happens in baby steps but you will begin to justify your fleshly desires!! In a matter of time you will begin to think wrong is right so you won't feel guilty about your fleshly choices!! You will eventually be a long way from home and all alone!!

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." (‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

What have you allowed to walk in your front door?

Child molestation usually happens in the house they live in so therefore their home, the "safe place" has been violated!!! All manner of TRUST has been broken that may never be restored because the hurt is too deep! When you allow something UNWHOLESOME to walk in through your front door thinking he, she or it's ok, you need to open your natural and spiritual eyes!! The reason most people will not open their eyes as to what they've allowed into their ANCHOR RELATIONSHIPS is because they will have to "OWN IT" and they will not face that sad reality!! There are many ways in these days of technology for something to get into your world!!
Be Deliberate, Be Consistent, Be Real and Be Careful as to what you let in through your "Eye Gate and Ear Gate" because everything that looks good to you may not be good for you"!!! Ask yourself theses questions;

1- Do I really need this attraction, distraction in my life?
2- Is there one good wholesome thing that will ever come from this exchange?
3- What is this costing me now that I have allowed this to walk into my life and my thoughts?
4- To what lengths will I go to protect this psychological relationship?

It is time to stop the pain, confusion and destruction of our relationships by simply saying no to our flesh!!!!

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬)
