I have come to an uncomfortable realization that community – though it is an instruction and goal for God’s people to assemble themselves – community does very little good for the spiritually hungry. If you are seeking God’s word, His will, His guidance, an understanding of who He is and who you are – go straight to His Word. If you’re depending on other people to tell you about God, you’ve already missed Him.
Life is a journey. We either pay attention to the signposts and embrace all the experiences we fall into or we don’t. With or without our attention, life goes on and things happen. So says, LaShawnda Jones, an author who writes with the intention of keeping her attention on her daily development, with a hope for being able to liver her tomorrow more fully.
Recent publications by LaShawnda Jones are: My God and Me: Listening, Learning and Growing on My Journey; The Process of Asking for, Receiving and Giving Love & Forgiveness. Both are available for purchase on Barnes&Noble.com and Amazon.com.
Know this: It is not for anyone else to believe God’s message to you. Don’t expect someone else, even fellow travelers/believers, to have your best interests at heart. If you know what has been spoken into you and shown to you through God’s Spirit, it’s your responsibility to ACT on it. With each test of faith and obedience, God will increase your understanding and deepen your relationship with Him immeasurably.

Love and Forgiveness Excerpt: Repent and Live
Q&A on Love and Forgiveness by LaShawnda Jones
Listen to internet radio with Ashea Goldson on Blog Talk Radio http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ashea-goldson/
I look at the Word of God like I do a set of directions from my house to my grandmother’s house. I follow the directions word by word, line by line. When God is teaching me in an area of my life, I follow His word, word by word, line by line.

“More than words!”
No one is exempt from the desire to be loved and forgiven.
Human interactions are fraught with miscommunication, hurt, offense, and pain. Toss in diverse personalities, varying perspectives and other characteristics, such as insecurity, pride, selfishness, stubbornness, or simple lack of awareness, and you can see how relationships become stagnant and eventually die.
In The Process of Asking for, Receiving and Giving Love and Forgiveness you will see how love, repentance and forgiveness are much more than words. Each is a choice. Each requires action. Each is a divine expression of life.
When you learn to receive and give life through the process of loving, repenting and forgiving, your stagnant and dying relationships will be restored.
