Sometimes too much

Is too much

Then it becomes

Something you had not intended

Overboard

Going too far

Without limitations

This translates to how

Each of us can become

When we spiral out of control

From being

Overworked

Overlooked

Underappreciated

Unloved

This does not have to be you

When you change your way of thinking

Work on being a better you

Sometimes this means

Restructuring your life

Becoming that person

Who wakes up

In the morning

Knowing that God loves them

 

constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength],

Romans 12:12 AMP

Jan. 6, 2020

At times we are all faced with situations that arise

And we become frantic with fear

Instead of relying on the Lord

The things that can be small

We tend to enlarge by worrying

When the issues of life

Come knocking at your door

Give it to the Lord

 

casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].

1 Peter 5:7 AMP

A Remnant of Hope

In times such as this

We can equate our lives

As mere fleeting moments

If there is no value or worth

What have we conditioned ourselves to seek after?

That causes one to feel like something is missing

That just it!

Things, whether material or physical

At the end of the day, it’s futile

As you begin to dig deeper, search further

There is much more to this life

It’s not just that you only exist

Your life is purposed

A divine appointment

Engraved with your name

Therefore, give your life a chance to make a difference

Receive the life God intended for you

 

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 AMP

Being kind goes a long way

Can you remember a time

When someone was kind to you?

Today more than ever

We need to care enough

About others

Let us treat people

With Love

 

But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Galatians 5:22 AMP

Numbers increase

Your age

The year

Employment to retirement

Growth comes

Through learning

Through listening

Through study

Through life’s lessons

You mature in stages

Let your journey be one

That encourages the next generation

 

But speaking the truth in love [in all things—both our speech and our lives expressing His truth], let us grow up in all things into Him [following His example] who is the Head—Christ. 

Ephesians 4:15 AMP

 

From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature,

building itself up in [unselfish] love.

Ephesians 4:16 AMP
