Turning the other cheek.

No one likes to be used. Especially, if they’re aware of it. Two of the very first reactions a person feels when their love or kindness is being misused, is hurt and anger. Those two feelings can cause that person to shut down and shut people out or seek revenge. Matthew 5:39, “But I tell…

When to let go and when to Hold on?

Oftentimes we think that letting go is more painful than holding on, but that’s not always the case. The thing about letting go and holding on, is to know when to let go and when to hold on. So, how does one know whether to leave or stay? Well, as far as letting go, there’s…

Motives

What you do isn’t as important as to why you do it! A person’s motives is everything, because it comes from the heart! Proverbs 16:2 (CEV) says, “We may think we know what is right, but the LORD is the judge of our motives.” Another scripture says, “A bad motive can’t achieve a good end;…

The invisible plank.

So, a plank, for those of you that don’t know, is timber that’s long, flat and rectangular. It is used in construction of ships, houses, bridges and other structures. So, in Matthew 7:3-5, when Jesus was giving a lesson on discernment, He basically told us that we need to take care of our personal obstruction…

The slippery slope of compromise.

Ephesians 6:10-18 tells us how to stand firm in the Lord by being equipped with the full armor of God. The very first thing this scripture tells us to do is to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. It’s imperative that we draw strength from God and rely on…

Don’t let life pass you by because you’re too afraid to live. It doesn’t matter what the cards of life has dealt you, play it to the best of your ability, knowing you have help, hope and a future. One of my favorite scriptures of all time is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans…

The stumbling block of comparison.

Comparison cripples purpose. I’m going to say it again for the people in the back… 🗣🗣🗣COMPARISON CRIPPLES PURPOSE! If a person is too busy comparing someone’s else’s strengths to their personal weaknesses, how is the scale balanced? If a person is too busy dissecting someone else’s life, how can they get their own life together…

Respond with love.

Hey y’all! I’m currently on vacay, but as always it’s TEAM JESUS, and today I wanted to share a little something, something with you all that’s been on my heart, and I believe it will bless you. If any of you have teenagers, then you know that teenage years are the most challenging years of…

The clench of anger.

Oh, the irony of anger. Have you ever heard the phrase, “It’s a thin line between love and hate?” How about this phrase, “He who angers you controls you?” When someone ticks you off, you’re angry because you feel like they owe you something, preferably an apology. Basically, you just want the person to right…
