Accepted In The Beloved

Without exception, everyone desires to be loved and accepted just the very way we are.  We all want to be embraced not by what we can do and contribute, but by simply being ourselves.  But this fallen and cruel world has so programmed our minds to define success to be recognized as merely great accomplishments, high positions and having surmountable amount of possessions apart from being who we really are.  As a result, many experience identity crisis.

Discover Something New

I was watching a woman who happened to be just thinking and believing of how she can make ends meet.  She’s got rent to deal with, bills to pay and food to buy for her to live.  What encouraged me was that she pressed in on what could she possibly do.  She thought of something within her reach and turned it into a work of art that brought forth provision.  She had chipped and broken ceramic pieces like plates, cups, etc, and saw beyond.  Little did she know that out of those seemingly useless broken pieces emerged a beautiful masterpiece of ceramic mosaic.

Step Out And Trust Him!

No one can exaggerate God and His goodness.  When we try to, He is still way above and beyond our exaggeration and overstatement.  He is the MOST HIGH GOD, therefore no one can be esteemed higher than Him in any and every way.

No one can exaggerate how we hear His voice.  His thoughts and ways are higher.  Besides He is always doing a NEW thing at all times.  Our part is to take time to stop for Him, to listen, watch, see, look and behold the NEW thing that is set before us.  If what we perceive is something that we haven’t heard nor seen before, we take heart and be of good cheer, for He is doing a NEW thing.  Never despise NEW beginnings.

Greater Things!

“I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even GREATER THINGS than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father.   And I will do whatever you ask in My name [as My representative], this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified and celebrated in the Son.  If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it.” (John 14:12-14 AMP)

The Promise-Keeper!

Who among you experienced at the height of being and “feeling” so in love utters promises to your loves ones that sometimes are expressively unattainable? I heard one said, “I will reach the moon and stars for you just because “I love you”? Or “I will do ANYTHING for you!” Or “I will take care of you FOREVER!” Hmmmm … words, words, and words, and after a few years, when the feelings fade away, with it are the promises. And because of failed promises, our hearts have grown callused and stone hard to believe spoken promises, gearing us to believe that “promises are meant to be broken!” and that “there is NO true love or there is NO forever in love.”
