John 11:25-26 New International Version (NIV)

This is the post excerpt.

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

We are using God’s word to live an abundant life in this world and beyond. JJS

June Blessings

As we start the month of June 2020, I pray that we walk into new, and positive experiences that will ensure continued growth, in all areas in our lives. 🙏🏼

George Floyd 🙏🏼

By now, most of us have seen the video, that shows a police officer pressing his knee on a mans neck, which lead to his death.

I feel a overload of emotions whenever I see an image, or video showing what occurred in Minneapolis, USA.

That police officer had a look of hatred, and evil on his face.

And Floyd of helplessness, and despair.

This is so sad to see. Words cannot express.

What is even worse is that this is not the first time an injustice like this happened to a colored person in America.

I pray for Floyd’s family and friends now, and for all the people that have experienced racism, and abuse.

Look at what is going on now, violent protests in several states.

It’s not just Covid-19 lockdown, but a war sparked by racism.

The protesters are angry. It’s been too much.

Now it’s outa control, again.

God help all of them. 🙏🏼

Have you ever Loved? 💛

Have you ever loved someone so much,

That when they hurt you feel it.

Their sadness becomes your emotion.

When they are happy it brings you joy.

What their heart desires is what you strive for.

I know how this feels to love someone, so much.

This is much like Agape Love, the highest form of love known to mankind. This kind of love is unconditional, sacrificial, and expects nothing in return.

Here are some Bible verses about God’s love:

Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

If someone you love is going through a struggle or loss, you will surely feel the sadness, and distress for them. However, the fact that they have you in their corner giving them love, will make a big difference. Then on top of that we all have God. 💛🙏🏼

All roads lead to…

Rome

“All paths or activities lead to the center of things. This was literally true in the days of the Roman Empire, when all the empire’s roads radiated out from the capital city, Rome.”

I was pondering about this proverb, and, related Bible story: “All Roads Lead To Rome.”

Meaning that all things eventually meet in the center, and also related to Paul’s journeys.

Here are two bible verses about Paul’s path to Rome.

Acts 19:21 “After all this had happened, Paul decided to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. “After I have been there,” he said, “I must visit Rome also.”

Acts 23:11 “The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.”

God builds roads for us to travel on. He thinks about all our ways, and wants all to work out for the best.

The Bible is fillies with history, and rich stories of all kinds.

I believe that God is, and will continue to set out and lead the way for us, like in the verse below:

Romans 4:21 “He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”

Dear God, Thank you for your lessons, and mercy, your kindness, and love. We praise your holy name. Please Lord, build roads for us to travel on that all lead to the center, of goodness, and prosperity. Please let us flourish in this world, and beyond. Thank you, in Jesus name Amen 🙏🏼

All in God’s plan 🙏🏼

Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

God started it, and he will follow through.

All of the good work you are doing, will continue on.

Claim your blessings.

Have faith that God has a plan for you and will bring it to fulfillment. 🙏🏼

Life Saving Prayers 🙏🏼

When you reach out to God in prayers it leads to being saved.

Thank you God, for giving us a blessed path to walk on.

We continue to Lift up your name.

And hold it dear in our hearts.

Thank you for keeping us going in the right direction,

That leads to prosperity, and security in Jesus name, Amen 🙏🏼

The tables are turned 🙏🏼

There is a story in the Bible that shows how God will protect his children, against others that want to bring harm to them.

Esther 9:1 “On the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar, the edict commanded by the king was to be carried out. On this day the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, but now the tables were turned and the Jews got the upper hand over those who hated them.”

God is good.

He will bring us to the Victory.

“The tables are turned”

God’s Mercies 🙏🏼

What does God’s word tell us about his mercies?

Here are some Bible verses about God’s Mercies?

Lamentations 3:23 “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

Deuteronomy 4:31 “For the Lord your God is a merciful God. He will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them.”

Ephesians 2:4 “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,”

The love of God will never end.

Every day is a new beginning.

God is faithful.

Reach out, and also within to feel the love and receive the mercies he has for us.

🙏🏼
