Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 1:7 NKJK)
Wishing you a peaceful day.. when are look around and see all the turmoil that’s going on in the world it’s easy to become upset and even angry.. but know that we don’t have to depend on the world peace.. we have the peace of God of living in us, so whatever this live brings us we can be at peace knowing God is in control..
Just a reminder that depression can strike anyone.. so the next your looking down on someone with mental illness.. stop and say a prayer..
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27 NKJ).
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution?… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us ( Romans 8:35,37 NIV)
Life need not be easy to be joyful. Joy is not the absence of trouble, but the presence of Christ. ~William Vanderhoven~

Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with this picture..
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13 ESV)
Even when all we see are the tangled threads on the backside of life’s tapestry, we know that God is good and is out to do us good always. -Richard J. Foster-
( A Treasury of God’s Promises)
God, I pray that You would cause only good and excellent things to come from my lips. Fill my heart with Your love, peace, patience and kindness so that it overflows from my mouth. Help me to speak of positive things and not negative-words that bring life and not death. I know the words I speak can bring blessing into my life or they can keep blessing from me. Help me to never shut off the flow of all You have for me by speaking words that are not glorifying to You..
Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips will come right things (Proverbs 8:6). – Stormie Omartin- Prayers For Emotional Wholeness
Your beauty shines in the day.. like the sunshine above.. just as well as it does at night.. like the moon set upon..
Don’t allow yourself to be nobody’s second best.. let him or her make you feel that all you’re good for is second place..
In other words don’t let nobody make you feel like there’s something wrong with you.. that your only use is when they have no one else.. Don’t think by allowing them to treat you less than.. You ask less than what .. less than the person God created you to be.. less than a person with feelings.. less than having your needs met.. but always meeting theirs.. less than being treated like the man and woman that God created you to be.. less than being shown respect for your body as well as your mind..
Too many of us settle for a less than life.. we allow another human beings.. with the same weakness as us .. subject to the same pain and shortcomings as we are.. make us feel less than..
If you don’t know if you’re less than.. let me share with you how to know..
- Does he/ she only call when they need something..
- Are you made to feel special..
- Do you see them only at night..
- Are you satisfied doing sex..
- Do they go weeks at a time without calling/ texting you..
- Do they say we are just friends but act like you their possession..
- Do they show any concern about you..
- Are you welcome at their place anytime..
- Do they show you respect..
- Do they take you out to dinner/ movie..
- Do they express any kind of love for you..
- Do you always do the giving but never receive anything back..
- Do they take your self esteem..
- Do they make you feel insecure..
- Do they let you know that they are looking for someone else.. that you are not who they desire to be in a relationship with..
- Do they let you know you are just a stress reliever.. ( a booty call)
I could go on and on with my list.. but what I’m trying to say is this.. nobody has the right to make you feel less than.. less than a man.. less than a woman.. you have the power as to how you allow anyone to treat you..
So everyday you must tell yourself.. I will not allow him/her to make me feel less than..Less than I know that I am.. key word you gotta know who you are.. in order to be treated the way you deserve.. you gotta know that there is nothing about you less than..
You gotta speak it.. today I am everything God created me to be.. and I never read where He created Adam less than.. but everything God created was good..
So you are good enough for anything.. and most definitely Anyone..
