GOOD,BETTER,BEST

I always love the saying, good, better, best. However, the only time we choose to use it, is when we lost something or someone. It is an effective quotation to hide our hurt, pain, and devastation. But if we look at it from a different perspective, there is a lot of truth behind the quote. I have been in situations where, I have lost a job I thought was good, then got a better one, lost that to get the best, with more money.

That’s why I stand on God’s word, and His promises, because,that’s when I realize that the quotation is true, it says:’And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose'(Romans 8:28). It’s always in losses, that God opens our eyes to see the blessings, He has in store for us, its then we see His grace, and mercies manifested, it’s then we should lose focus of the things, and people of this world, and focus on the only one who can see us through, and bring us out of the storms of life. Yes friends let me tell you, like it is: ‘we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed   ( 2 Corinthians 4:8-9).  

 I  love Gladys Knight song but I have to re-write it to suit me, ‘If anyone should ever write my life story, for whatever reason, please tell them Jesus is the best thing that ever happen to me’. The world can’t top what Jesus did on Calvary, no man or woman, no job, no degree, nothing can beat out Gods best for us.

Let me reveal a little secret to you, when we are afflicted, talked about, and mistreated, it is for our consolation and salvation.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God   ( 2 Corinthians 1:3-7). ‘Finally, my brethren,rejoice in the Lord…beware of dogs, people who do evil, and the mutilations of the flesh, for we are the circumcision, who worship God in the spirit, so lets rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh'(Philippians 3:1-3). If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, go immediately to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions, don’t delay tomorrow might be too late, open up your heart and let the redeemer in, it will be the best thing you ever did, and the best gift you ever received.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out to His people, I pray it blesses you as it did me, and may you obey His will, and walk according to His ways in Jesus Name, amen.

STOP IT,NOW

STOP! Don’t dial 1-800-feel bad,or start a pity party,start rejoicing.Rejoicing is a good antidote for stress,depression,cares,and the worries of this world,put some music on,then start  singing ,and dancing, it is safe and effective.Now ,it all depends on the kind of music you listen to,you see I am a gospel,or christian music person,I realize that when I glorify God,the praises go up ,and the blessing come down.Listen, to me folks you can’t listen to music ,that will make you feel worse,why would you want to listen to music ,that will let you think about the person who broke your heart or put you in a state of funk,and depression. That’s why you have to listen to some spiritual music, to uplift your soul,that is totally unrelated to your hurt,pain,and ache.

When ,I think of the love God has for me,and the goodness of Jesus Christ,who died for me,that automatically replaces,everyone and everything that hurt me.That’s when I start to rejoice ,sing, dance ,and shout for joy.Sometimes, you have to encourage yourself in the Lord,that’s what King David did( 1 Samuel 30:6),when there is no one around,or you have people who just have nothing good to say,and just make you feel worse,then you have to step up to the plate ,and encourage yourself in the Lord.

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance,but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken (Proverbs 15:13);Many are the afflictions of the righteous,but the Lord delivered him out of them all ( Psalms 34:19);Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound;they shall walk, O Lord,in the light of thy countenance.In thy name shall they rejoice all the day,and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted ( Psalms 89:15-16).

The apostle paul tells us to,”Rejoice in the Lord always:and again I say, rejoice!”.. then he said,”Be anxious for nothing,but in everything by prayer,and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God;and the peace of God,which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts,and minds through Christ Jesus,….hold up don’t go anywhere it gets better,he said, Finally,brethren,whatsoever things are true, honest,just,pure,lovely,and of good report;if there be any virtue,or praise think on those things” (Philippians 4:4-8),now don’t you feel you feel a whole lot better,instead of calling 1-800-feel-bad, having a pity party,or crying a river to swim away,don’t allow the devil to laugh,do a reality check,you are a child of the most High God,Jesus gave us the victory,and the authority to tread on serpents,scorpions,and all the power of the enemy;and nothing shall by any means hurt you (luke 10:19-20) it’s  time to rejoice that our names are written in Heaven.Let the heart of them rejoice who seek the Lord( 1 Chronicle 16:10).

If you can’t rejoice ,or don’t know how to ? When everything is going right or wrong,let me introduce you to the God,and His only begotten son ,who can,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,in will be the best thing you ever did. I give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people,I pray it blessed you as it did me,may the God of peace,love ,and joy be with you now and forever in Jesus Name ,amen.

REJOICING

This is the day which the Lord hath made;we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24). Let the heart of those who seek the lord rejoice (1 Chronicles 16:10).Rejoice in the Lord always and again, I say, rejoice( Philippians 4:4). In John 14:28 Jesus said if we love Him then we will rejoice.

Well I have to be honest and tell you that if you are not rejoicing or you do not have anything to rejoice about it’s because you do not know God. If you do not know God then you do not know His only begotten son (Jesus Christ) who was sent to fill the void between God and ourselves. What are you waiting for? If you are brave enough and ready to know our savior go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. There will be rejoicing in heaven when you finally do.
