Hit The Delete Button

The other day I was watching Joel Osteen on television and he was talking about deleting negative things people may say about us. A lot of times we accept negative criticism that people say to us like, “you are never going to amount to anything in life; you’re never going to be the person you think you are going to be when you grow up (doctor, lawyer, etc.)”.

Dare To Be Different

I’m sure you’ve noticed how different human beings are! We’re all unique. Like the sun, the moon, and the stars mentioned in today’s scripture, God created each of us to be different from one another, and He did this on purpose. Each of us meets a need, and we are all part of God’s overall plan. Read More Here

God Made Us Unique Part 1

I prefer to use the word unique, because it stands out in my eyes. Can you even imagine if God made everybody the same? With the same favorite color, clothes styles, food etc. This world would be really boring. Read More Here

How to live a Christ-like life Lesson 1

This is the first lesson based on the outline that I previously post.  I hope that you took the time to go over the outline and have read the scriptures.

1.      Give your life to God by accepting Jesus – John 3:16 and Romans 10:9-13

Jesus gave up Heaven, came to earth and on purpose took the sins of mankind.  He knew that everyone would not accept Him, but He came anyway.  Because He took on sin, He was separated from His Father. God and sin cannot associate with each other and Jesus knew that, but came to earth and took all the sins that had been committed and the ones that would ever be committed.  His love for us is so strong that He wanted to be sure that we would have the opportunity to be reconnected with God. Likewise, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to save us. That connection would give us the right to eternal life.  It also gave us the right to live a blessed, favored, holy life.  Salvation is so simple to achieve, but we make it seem hard. “ Well, if you want to be saved you have to do this and that and so on and so on”….NO…all we have to do is believe in our hearts that Jesus is the Son of God, and confess Him with our mouths.

After you give your life to Jesus, pray and ask God to lead you to a Bible believing, Bible teaching, Christ-centered church where you can learn the word of God and how to live the awesome life that Jesus died for you to have. Get a Bible and go over the scripture and lessons at home that you heard in church.

Also, remember that anything you need to clean up in your life, give to Jesus.  The closer you get to Him, the farther you will get from the sin that tries to take hold of us.  Don’t allow anyone to condemn you for the things you still have in your life.  God knows what you need and will help you in every area of your life.

There Is Nothing God Can't Handle

… With men [it is] impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.

                                                                                                         Mark 10:27

 If there are no impossibilities, then we can live in constant victory and nothing can threaten us or make us feel afraid of the future. Everything that is in the will of God will be accomplished in His way and timing.
Is life too much for us? Is there anything that we just cannot handle? Not according to God, for He says through the apostle Paul that we can do all things through Christ Who is our Strength. We are ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infused inner strength into us (see Phil. 4:13).
Before we let go and let God be our all in all, we usually have to find out the hard way that we cannot do it all on our own. The hard way means we keep trying and failing over and over until we admit total dependence on God. It can be a long and painful journey and some never reach the end of themselves, but for those who do, it is the beginning of living with their soul at rest. They know they can’t do it all – but they also know that God can, and they decide that watching Him do what needs to be done, as only He can do, will be entertaining. I love to watch God work. It is one of my greatest pleasures in life.
Since we know that God is keeping the universe running properly every second of every day, why would we doubt that He can take care of us? He has all power, all authority, all wisdom, and He loves us with a perfect love that is promised to us unconditionally and forever. Are you leaning on Him in every situation? Do you believe God is good, and that He wants to be good to you? Put your faith in Him and enter His rest.

Trust in Him: Do you believe God has the power to help you, and that since He has all wisdom, He knows exactly what to do and when to do it? Lean on Him completely and trust Him to give you the strength to do what you need to do, while you wait on Him to do what only He can do.

Take Care of What God Has Given You

By Joyce Meyer

Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own….
                                                                  1 Corinthians 6:19

What if you went to a church and it was rundown? Peeling paint, broken doors, and smudged windows that didn’t let the light in? You’d wonder about the pastor, wouldn't you? The church is his instrument for celebrating the glory of God, yet if he doesn't respect the church enough to take the time to keep it in good condition, what does this say about his relationship with God?
The same question applies to your own body- taking care of the body God has given you is the most important kind of “home maintenance” you can do! Your body is the home of your spirit where God dwells. To do the work you were meant to do, you need to keep it in shape.
I still have to remind myself of this. Once I hurt my voice by specking in a seminar with an extremely store throat. That morning when I woke up, I knew I shouldn't speak, but I thought about the disappointment of the audience if I didn't  So I forced myself to speck, but the next day I could not make a sound. I couldn't continued, and I begin to worry. I finally went to the doctor, who told me I had damage my vocal cords. He said each time we push ourselves beyond reasonable limits, we do some damage, and if we do it too often, we get to a point where we can’t recover. He said it might reach a point where I could not tech at all if I did not respect my voice and take care of it.
I nearly jeopardized my entire public ministry! If I had permanently damage my voice, I would have wound up helping far fewer people and derailing my life’s calling. Now I’m more careful about protecting the tools I need to do God’s work- my voice, my mind, my heart, my emotions, and my body. Please take care of yourself so you can glorify God and do all that He has intended for you to do.

Trust in Him: How can you take better care of your body- the place where God dwells? Show God you love Him and trust Him by taking good care of your temple.

Personal Integrity

By: Joyce Meyer

When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

                                                                                             Proverbs 11:2-3

We live in a society that has so lost its sense of moral values that common decency is often not even practiced. Our world no longer honors God and is not concerned about integrity. Whether it involves cheating or committing fraud or specking half-truths and exaggerations that lead others to believe something that is not true, our culture is saturated with the lies of the enemy.
As believers, we live in the world but are not to be of the world (John 17:11,14). If we want to walk in confidence, we cannot compromise our integrity and act as the world does. Integrity is “affirm adherence to a code or standard of values.” Our code is the Word of God. There are certain things we wouldn’t even think of doing, but there are too many compromises, even in the lives of God’s people. There are things we do that Jesus would not do, and He is our standard of integrity.
Integrity is being committed to a life of excellence, as our God is excellent. It is doing the right thing every time, no matter what it costs us.


Lord, cause Your Word to come alive inside of me that I may conform my life to it. Make me a person of integrity who will not compromise the truth, Amen

Celebrate the Positive

By: Joyce Meyer

For we all often stumble and fall and offend in many things. And if anyone does not offend in speech [never says the wrong things], he is a fully developed character and a perfect man, able to control his whole body and to curb his entire nature.
                                                                                                  James 3:2

Our thoughts and words about ourselves are tremendously important. In order to overcome the negative thinking and speaking that have been such a natural part of our lifestyle for so long, we must make a conscious effort to meditate on and speak positive things about ourselves. We need to get our mouth in line with what the Word of God says about us. Positive confession of the Word of God should be an ingrained habit of every believer. If you have not yet begun to develop this important habit, start today. “ I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ. I prosper in everything I lay my hand to. I have gifts and talents and God is using me. I operate in the fruit of the Spirit. I walk in love. Joy flows through me.”
We can appropriate the blessings of God in our lives if we will continually and purposefully speak about ourselves what the Word of God says about us. We will receive positive results.


Lord, I will make the positive confession of Your Word an ingrained habit of my life. Help me to get my mouth in line with the truth of what you have done for me. Amen.
