Happy New Year! 2017

Well, here it is, 2017 is upon us! Alot of things happened this year but by the grace of God, we, me and my family, came through them. Not everything is peachy keen and perfect, far from it, but we are alive and breathing and things are on the mend. 

I asked my lil big bro Carlos what would he be leaving behind in 2016? He shared with me what he’s leaving behind ( it’s not my place to share his stuff) and I shared with him that I’d be leaving fear behind because in order for God to use me the way He has planned, I need to leave that behind. I do it gladly. I want to be able for him to have full access and use me for whatever it is He will use me for. Amen? Amen!!

I want to say to all that follow my blog that it’s been great getting to know you all and reading your blogs as well. I look forward to another great year of blogging with you all in this year. Have a great year!!

Prompt Twenty-Seven | Your First Job Interview 

Ok, my first job interview was for Tate’s Shop Rite, for their bakery department. This was a family owned grocery store. Their whole family and then some worked there. I was hired on when I was 16. I don’t recall what the questions were that they asked me. I do remember that the minimum wage was something like $3.80, and I thought I was rich!!
I truly don’t even recall going to the interview. All I remember is that I got the job. lol! I stayed working there for 6 months and then quit. The store no longer exists, ;(

Spiritual growth in the Christian life never comes through passivity. It involves persistent effort. Grace empowered effort. Some would call those that seek to have a daily routine or ordered spiritual life, legalistic. And we must be careful not to allow legalism into our devotional lives before God. But, if we are to escape the snares of mass market religion, and  distractions in our lives, we need a plan. “God is not the author of confusion” so taking steps to guard our hearts from the pressure of our daily lives is helpful.  A well…

God’s Love Transforms Human Love

Christian Articles

Human love must respond to God’s love

1 John 4:19-20 (NKJV)

19 We love Him because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

 

 Deuteronomy 6:5;30:6 (NKJV)

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

 

Ephesians 5:1 (NKJV)

1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.

Colossians 3:12-14 (NKJV)

12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.

Nativity 

First World Revival

Today we celebrate Christmas; a day that will live eternal. It is a day that angels sang and demons trembled; that righteousness and morality literally entered the world. We never again have to wonder if God hears us or understands our plight. For He is Emmanuel, God with us! This is what separates our great Redeemer from all others. Every other major religion can be pictured as men climbing up the mountain of thier god(s). But our great story begins by God climbing down the mountain for us.
