Just do it – You Are Duty-Bound!

It is important to know that yes, as individuals, we need to be grateful, but as servants we need to be humble. A humble servant is lowly in self-estimation. There is no pride or ego that needs the flattery of gratitude. Humbleness is modesty, but it’s not weakness. A great deal of strength is required to completely set your self aside in service to another.

Just do it – Get Up and Walk!

Perhaps I’ve known the principle of this story from a young age, because I can’t recall a time when I’ve known what I’ve wanted and didn’t act on achieving it or prepare to receive it. I’ve certainly had my low moments when I’ve prayed for help, support, and assistance of any kind; and lower moments when the help I was looking for never arrived. But being low (in spirit, in mind, in encouragement, etc.) never stopped me from standing up straight and moving forward.

Don’t Be Weak Minded… Please!

Let me tell you, that had to be the first time I approached someone I had just met in an unfamiliar environment and tried to provide them with a healing word. And it so happened that it was the first time I got shot down in mid-word for my efforts! I was stunned. And I struggled to not be offended. Belief is a choice. Faith is a choice. Accepting God’s Word is a choice. I can’t be upset with how others choose….

Seduced by the Enemy, Part 1: Know Thyself, Know Thy Enemy

The word “enemy” can also be misleading, in that it leads one to look outward for danger instead of inward. The spiritual attacks aimed at knocking believers from their walk with God targets the believer’s internal organisms of belief, faith, heart and thoughts. Even though the perpetrator of the attacks is the spirit we know as Satan or the devil or the god of this world, our most dangerous potential enemy is our self.

Pleasing God While in the World

We work so hard to please God and all our hard work is for naught when we aren’t giving Him what He truly wants. God is a communicator. He has spoken His words and had them written down so we can review and refer back to them at our leisure. As we learn His Word, He wants us to speak it back to Him. In teaching us to speak His word back to Him, He is teaching us to speak to Him directly. His ears are open – He’s ready to listen; He’s ready to answer. He’s ready to speak new words to us… special words.

Two Life Living Lessons from Mom

Nearly everything I learned from my mother, I learned from watching her live; observing how she interacted with and treated others. Occasionally, I missed a lesson and took my cues from how people treated her – dismissively, disrespectfully or abusively. When I responded to them in kind, mom would rebuke me with a great deal of irritation….

Your Life is Your Ministry

I’m sure you’ve heard many variations of this theme [why do today what you can do tomorrow]. And to all of those excuses and the ones waiting to be spoken, I say – Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2). So… just do it!

LaShawnda – Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m sitting here in tears now reading this because I didn’t know how to express how I was feeling. Reading this has touched me very deeply. Yep – I too need love and shouldn’t be ashamed to admit it. It is definitely time for me to also “fold up my petals” in a few places. BUT GOD is good and is clearly asking me to pay attention to some of the wonderful new, nurturing and giving people he has placed in my life. God Bless you for sharing of yourself and your experiences so openly. I continue to be blessed by your writing. Peace & Blessings your way – ~jax.
