Precious Pearls

Don't you love it when God speaks little truths to us through out the day? I love those precious pearls.

The Holy Spirit led me to share those Truth's with others. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was, to see how it encouraged those that heard them.

Then it occurred to me, to gather them up, and share them with you too. 

When you find a friend.. you have found a pearl of great value. Never lose it! Never take advantage of it and serve it, rather than enslaving it.

John 8:7 Let him without sin be the first to throw a stone. We are quick to find fault with others. We are not spiritual cops. Let's tend our own heart.

If God is not disappointed with you, why in the world are you disappointed in yourself? He created and approves of you. Jeremiah 1:5; John 12:47

Believe that you can be obedient. Believe that God loves you, that YOU are important and significant! Don't look to people for your worth.

Jos 24:15 Choose for yourself, whom you shall serve. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord! Next temptation that hits, what will you decide?

Psalms 27:14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart. It's hard to wait when circumstances are pressing hard. Let your praise to God strengthen you.

We fear that loving and accepting an individual is condoning their choices. This fear is our own. Loving someone is Not the same as condoning their actions.

Your love and devotion is not a tool to be used to manipulate the attitude and actions of another.

There are times when God calms the Storm in your life. There are times He lets the Storm rage and calms you.

As I watch my children grow, learn, and smile at their new found knowledge, it makes me think how Jesus smiles at us when we get it...

When what you’re feeling is too heavy, too burdensome, you forgot God should be carrying it? Let it go..
