Archives For forward

Are you stuck in the past? Thinking to yourself… coulda, woulda, shoulda?  Don’t get stuck in the same ole rut of bringing up things you want to forget! What about your dreams?

God didn’t get stuck with you, He chose you!  “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will last.” (John 15:16, NIV
God can use you if you are able to let go of the past.  He wants you to move forward!  Take a hold of those dreams you once had.

Satan is the accuser of the brethren…he would love for you to stay right where you are for the rest of your life.  He would like nothing more than to continue to bring up images from past!  Abortion, abuse, rape, idolatry, drugs, pornography!  Memories you replay in your mind!

Empty it out! Repentance is the closure you need from your past!  Then… stop remembering what God has forgotten and allow Him to use you!

“Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.  But one thing I do:  Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14, NIV)

Why not start today?!  It’s not about the clock, it’s about consistency.  “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all thing are possible with God.”(Mark10:27, NIV)

Feed what you want to live and starve what you want to die!  Start today by doing one thing…just one, to stretch your growth.  Listen to some inspirational cd’s, post some scripture around to memorize, add some Christian music to your collection.  And most important, read God’s word daily. 

“Forget what happened long ago!  Don’t think about the past.  I am creating something new.  There it is! Do you see it?  I have put roads in deserts, streams in thirsty lands.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)

God has made His choice…what about you??  Deb

 

No More Night

Don’t you just love when you have something to look forward to?

I look forward to vacations, spending time with my children, grandchildren and parents, warm sunny days out on my deck, splashing in the pool, taking a long stroll while holding my love’s hand and throwing a ball to my precious Dauschand, Abigail.

If you’re a believer you have something to look forward to…spending eternity with your Savior!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17)

Our time on this earth is fleeting! There will come a time when there is no more night, no more pain ~Deb

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21L4, NIV)
