Be Grateful. Give Thanks to God. It’s Just That Simple.

What I Want JoaynnIt doesn’t matter how well you do in life, especially when it seems all is going as planned. It only takes one thing that will change your life forever. Be ready to fall on your knees in prayer to God when life changes.

We’re not promised tomorrow. Don’t take life for granted. Keep God at the center. Pray, meditate, study the Word. Give thanks to God. It’s because of his grace and mercy you are alive.

Some didn’t make it today. Thank God for brand new mercies. You woke in your right mind, with a portion of health and strength. Without God, you never would have made it.

You may not have what you want. You have what you need. You may not be where you want to be. God has you right where you need to be. Thank God. In everything, give all glory to God.

Be blessed! – JD

Psalm 100:3-4 “Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!” (ESV)

Food For Thought: Jesus Is Coming Back. Are You Ready?

Jesus Will Return JoaynnOftentimes I hear people as well as myself say how we are living in the last days and seeing signs of the times. And make no mistake about it, we are. If you don’t have a relationship with God or you are not in the right relationship with Him, now is the time to seek him, repent, and get right with him.

We are living on borrowed time. This is just a temporary dwelling place. Jesus is coming back. Be ready. Don’t miss it.

Being a Christian doesn’t mean we’re perfect. We’re flawed. Don’t conform to the ways of this world because someone thinks you should. We are sinners. We all are in need of a Savior. Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Go to the throne of grace. Boldly ask for forgiveness.

When we make decisions on our own and we believe it was a blessing when things turn out for the good, in spite of our flaws, know it was by God’s grace it turned out for the greater good and not because of what we did.

It is not by our own merit or our works God saves us but it is Christ work on the cross what saves us. God grants us grace even when we don’t deserve it.

Be careful with the decisions you make. Do what pleases God. Count your blessings. Jesus is coming back soon. Be ready.

Be blessed! – JD

Ephesians 1:17, 18 “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give the Spirit of wisdom and revelation that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.” (ESV)
