I am HIS

  I am God's child....even when I mess up and do the things I don't want to do, I am still His child and He still loves me. Look guys, none of us get up in the mornings with the thought of intentionally doing wrong, causing pain or hurt. We don't wake up dreaming of being so angry that we lash out at others....but sometimes we do those things and worse. In those moments, God never quits loving you, He never gives up on you, His love endures forever!

It's just like our own children, they make mistakes as well....and sometimes they will lash out at us in anger. Do we stop caring for them, do we stop loving them, do we exchange them for a new child? No, we would never do that. That is the same way God cares about you.....

If you find yourself doing things that you know you shouldn't, and you feel that all is lost.....take comfort today....God still loves you and wants you to just turn around and run toward Him! He will wrap you up in His arms, He will listen to your cares, your frustrations, and anything else you are feeling because He cares so much for you today!

It is a Battle, but Your Opponent is NOT who You Think....

Just a note of encouragement today.....

when you are in a difficult situation with another person or groups of people, we have to remember that we are not battling against the person....

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12
it is a MUST that we know this....it is so easy for all of us to see the person or group as our opponent, I guess that is our nature, we feel we must have a face to be against. We may have legitimate reson to be upset, angry, etc...but your fight is not against a flesh and blood person and the sooner we realize that and start praying against the spiritual force of evil, the sooner we will begin to see results.

let go today of the hurts and grudges, love the person and fight against our true enemy....

Walking this journey with you,
