As we enter this holiday season, we taken in all of the beautiful sights, smells and sounds and it is hard not to get lost in the feeling of it all, but we must remember that the story of this Christ child was not born of feelings but of faith and truth. We by faith and by truth know that this child, born in Bethlehem, is our Savior, the One who came to reconcile our debt of sin, in order that we might have eternal life after earthly death.
From my reading this morning: “A person is saved by trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross, and not by bodily sensations and religious ecstasy. But you will say, “What about feeling? Is there no place in saving faith for feeling?” Certainly, there is room for feeling in saving faith. But we are not saved by it. Whatever feeling there may be is the result of saving faith, but feeling never saved a single soul. Love is feeling. Joy is feeling. Inward peace is feeling. Love for others is a feeling. Concern for the lost is a feeling. But these feelings are not conversion. The one experience that you can look for and expect is the experience of believing in Christ.”-Billy Graham
🚂 Don’t let your feelings be your engine or they will derail you, run your track with faith and truth and you will see that when you “think you can’t”, you actually can!🚂

(Photo taken from Pinterest) 15 years a go, the day the word “terrorism” became a regular part of America’s vocabulary. The vocabulary of every generation changes, but my children seem to bear a heavier burden of words and phrases then … Continue reading
Don’t you hate being known as “that person”?
“That person”, the one who loses it at the end of the day in tears. “That person”, the one who loses it because of someone else’s actions. “That person”, the one who everyone is waiting to see when the fuse will be lit. “That person”, the one who they expect some kind of reaction from. “That person”, who collapses due to insecurities and weakness.
What if I could be known as “that person” who is known for the positive instead of the negative?
“That person”, who overcomes the day. “That person”, who rises above the challenging person. “That person”, who doesn’t accept defeat but accepts victory through grace, kindness and love in response. “That person” who smiles in the face difficulty.
I so desire to be “that person” who exemplifies Christ’s grace, mercy, love, kindness, and forgiveness. I also desire to be “that person” who exemplifies Christ’s strength in me where I do not fall apart and I do not crumble in my own insecurities. The only way I can truly be victorious is through Him so I can become “that person” who He has created me to be, not who I have created, in and through Christ, His strength will be seen.
Look for me, I am going to become “that person.”
Prayer, it isn’t just about the obedience and the action of it, but the power, faithfulness, and promises behind it. We are asked to come, seek, and know God through our prayers. He speaks through our prayers, through the … Continue reading
My motto is “Choose Joy” even though I do mourn, weep and cry I still try to fall on the choice of joy. Sometimes I think I comment too much on things or “like” too many things on social media but my goodness why not?! Life truly is bombarded with so much junk, negativity, and just too many bad days so why not be the encourager in this world? Where there is Jesus, there is joy! Don’t post things to show perfection in your life (which there isn’t) but post to show the beauty, grace and joy which your God has given you. God has equipped you to be the cheerleader in your life and in others! 💛☀️ Have a great day!
