Do you, do I, do we know what it means?
Do we know what it feels like to sacrifice?
More directly, do you know what it feels like when you sacrifice?
Have you ever sacrificed anything?
Do you even want to change? Or would you rather stay the same?
The things is, babies become adults. Each person has to grow up. Though I suppose there is that family that maintains a lifestyle that would not be considered the norm…
Growing up is tough fellow writers and readers, this chapter is tough and I find that I need or require the encouragement God was able to give through me.
Year 27 so far, not an easy one.
Hmm, many things to be thankful for, I state this one. What I imagined was impossible has happened. It came to pass. And that’s how the question came, how does one give thanks and praise to God for receiving or getting what one wants…remember, God is not one whi gives wishes, rather I believe He is one who makes the impossible, possible.
Whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I did not withhold my heart from any pleasure, For my heart rejoiced in all my labor; And this was my reward from all my labor.
Ecclesiastes 2:10 NKJV
It makes sense to me. Especially since I’ve started working one year, I think I would want to satisfy my desires for the work I’ve been doing seems tough.
“Change doesn’t always have to be drastic to be effective.”
“Change is necessary for you to reach your potential.”
Currently reading The Power of Your Potential by John C. Maxwell, which is where these two quotes are from.
Aaron & Jamie-Grace on “Do We Argue?” Also check out Jamie’s song Wait It Out, especially if you are single 🎉🎊🎉 there’s nothing wrong with being single, if you’re a believer in Christ, let Him shape you & build you up.
>>>Questions are welcome<<<
Guys this couple is so cute!!! I admire that they are best friends. And I thank God my dad and his wife do not argue!!! This is coming from someone with divorced parents who argued way too much in my late teen years. Times are much better now, thank You Lord for these better times.
Mini – Update:
My former ex and o got back together at the end of July!
God answered a prayer that I was close to letting go off 😔 but what do you do after He answers the prayer??? I think continuous praise and worship is due to the LORD.
Tonight, even with a boyfriend, I decided it’s totally fine to smell good for yourself. I’m not meeting boyfriend, but guess what? I felt like smelling good and I went about doing that 😉. So ladies (and men too), treat yourself well but perhaps with moderation 👍.
All you have to do is personalize it if you have asked Jesus to be Lord of Your life and you are seeking Him.
Here’s an example written a hours ago using two scriptures.
“I will not be anxious about anything, but in everything, in every situation with prayer, petitions and Thanksgiving I will present my request to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. I trust in the Lord with all my heart, I am not and will not lean on my own understanding, in all my ways I acknowledge Jesus and Jesus directs my path. In Jesus’ name, amen amen and amen.”
The verses are Philippians 4:6 & 7; Proverbs 3:5 & 6
“For bodily exercise profiteth little, but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 KJV
Exercising. Moving my body. I’ve loved that in time past. I still do. I want to get back to it. Be more consistent. Why? Because I know I’m better with it, with exercising in a way that I prefer or in the way that I can at the moment.
This verse says that, ‘godliness is profitable unto all things…’ I agree. With godliness, comes self-disciple, the knowledge of what is right versus what is wrong, the desire to choose what is right instead of what is wrong. Choosing to exercise instead of sitting in bed watching TV – all day. That could stem from discipline of self when one has a fitness goal they are aiming for.
Godliness for the life that is to come. Are you a believer? Walking in the gospel or way of Christ? Walking and living with love towards self and others? Communicating and acknowledging God more than once a week? Godliness is profitable for this time now; this time not sets forth how ones future will be.
