God tells us to “go ye”. 


God sends us out where people are perishing!


In spreading the Good News it requires intentionally 


taking the light into the darkness. 


Satan is fighting against us because 


we are God’s witnesses to the world.


We must stand firm, press on, 


and boldly march into the enemy’s kingdom 


to do the work we have been assigned to do.


God is lavish in His grace, 


often liberally dispensing His favor 


without even the least bit 


of cooperation 


and preparation on our part.

 


We can routinely avail ourselves 


of these revealed paths of blessings, 


or neglect them to our detriment.

The wider lesson is...


when we have been blessed, by God... 


those spiritual blessings are not for us 


to keep to ourselves or hide under a bushel basket. 


We are to live it and share it.

One main command of the gospel 


is to spread it,



to tell the Good News!



The Gutenberg Bible contains these words:


“God suffers in the multitude of souls 


whom His word cannot reach.”



God’s truth should not be confined or imprisoned. 


Instead, God’s steadfast love and faithfulness 


is the treasure that all of God’s Creation 


should be exposed to.


Mercy is the way grace in us 


reaches out to others. 


Grace calls us to step out of ourselves. 


Mercy shows us where to go. 



Grace is our primary encounter with God. 


Mercy extends that encounter to others. 


Grace is the presence of God within. 


Mercy is the action of God within.



Let us break the seal which seals up holy things 


and give wings to Truth in order that she soars 


and wins every soul that comes into the world! 



May God’s truth be multiplied. 

We can’t open someone’s 


heart to the truth of the


Gospel—



but God can.




Sharing our faith 


isn’t just a suggestion,

 


it’s a command. 



For those sitting on the sidelines finding fault… 


The questions become… 


Are you afraid of what others will think of you 


if you praise God? 


Are you a fresh wind that causes the seed of 


the Good News to spread,


or are you an obstacle that keeps it from 


moving further and faster?

Share God’s love and 


the Good News of Jesus!


I understand that I cannot save the world, but God can. 


It is a fact that we cannot control what other people do. 


We cannot make someone else act with integrity, 


or make someone else do the right thing, 


and we cannot make someone else be a good person,


but I do believe inspirational seeds of goodness sown 


can serve as a source of Spiritual upliftment 


to help us live a less fretful, a more fruitful, 


a more creative, and all-around improved life.



Sometimes all we need to do is light a candle.



Having a personal realization and relationship with God 


impels me to inspire others, encourage, 


and share His grace with others.



I am not a preacher or teacher, 


but I am willing, immensely honored, and humbled 


when God allows me to equip and point others 


to live a more awakened life by turning back to 


the PERFECT ONE within us Who is majestic, 


perfectly good, just, righteous, without partiality, 


faithful to His promises, 


intimately aware of all creation, and 


"Able to do exceedingly abundantly


above all that we ask or think". 



God is the journey we all yearn to be on. 


I dare not go around and beat anyone down by 


condescendingly quoting scripture 


and trying to be holier than Thou... 


I am humbled by God's willingness to love and forgive 


someone like me, and willing to remind others of 


the Fountain of all good within every one of us... 


no exceptions.



I am grateful to God that I am blessed to have the liberty 


to share edifying messages that can positively impact 


and uplift lives internally, externally, and eternally.

Cultivating a close relationship with God 


does not require one to be perfect.


I can’t and don't intend to deny the reality 


of what God has done in my life. 



When I reflect on my past


 and the many times I made poor choices 


and bad turns… I look and see... 


undeserved grace and mercy...


all over me. 


When I think about illnesses, prayers answered, 


close calls in traffic, 


and the many storms that we have weathered… 


I see where God’s grace and mercy kept us. 


This is something I could never earn.



When I am reminded of the times I felt like I could not make it... 


or take another step, but somehow I did… some may say it was “Luck”, 


but Believers will say it was


the power of God’s Divine “Grace” 


that imparted the strength 


to help me endure and get through it.




God’s grace ignites gratitude within me. 


Apart from God...I am nothing. 



I sincerely believe, anything less than 



full acknowledgement 



of  how powerful God’s love 



is for us, 



and how He pours out 



His goodness on us 



like we had never sinned…

 


renders one as a total ingrate.



How can one feel justified in praising man, the finite... 


with his limited knowledge and understanding; 


yet, shrink back and not share 


The Good News about the Creator, 


Who is Infinitely above 


anything and everything, visible and invisible, 


we can attempt to discern or express?


All things in Heaven and on earth are under God's  


immeasurable, boundless, immense, endless, 


forever, and Omnipresent authority.




Hebrews 13:16 reminds us...


Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, 


for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. 



Many times we want to shine, 


without the pain and uncertainty 


of what those seasons of pain taught us. 


We long to reflect beauty 


without the glaring weakness of deep cracks 


that line our stories and fill us with holes. 


We want to cover what was broken and scarred, 


masking the struggles of a past 


that took us down difficult pathways. 


And yet, embracing and sharing the beauty 


of the broken is what enables us to live free... 


with greater purpose, 


changed hearts, and renewed vision.



When we overcome, 


we are able to strengthen others. 


Out of our greatest tests comes our greatest testimony.



Proverbs 3:27 reminds us...


Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due 


when it is in your power to do it. 



Proverbs 11:25 tells us...


Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,


and one who waters will himself be watered.



Lifting God’s Name up, and even blogging… 


being a conduit, a vessel for God to use 


doesn’t require one to be perfect. 


I understand that I cannot save the world. 


It is a fact that we cannot control what other people do. 


We cannot make someone else act with integrity, 


or make someone else do the right thing, 


and we cannot make someone else be a good person,


but I do believe words of inspiration and encouragement 


can change things. 


Sometimes all we need to do is light a candle.


Having a personal realization and relationship with God 


impels me to inspire others, encourage, 


and share whatever God allows me to share with others... 


with gentleness and respect.


We all experience times and situations 


when we need an encourager—


someone who lifts us up if we’re down, 


motivates us to keep going when we want to give up, 


and stands with us through challenging circumstance.



When we are encouraged in Christ, 


we have strength to put on our Spiritual armor 


and remain steadfast (see Ephesians 6:10-18).


What’s more, each of us needs to be an encourager 


to someone else. There are people all around us 


who are discouraged and could use a word of comfort 


or an act of kindness. 



Whether friends, family members, acquaintances, 


or strangers, we could make a tremendous difference 


in someone’s life and give them a glimpse of Christ 


as we follow His example of compassion and kindness.


Proverbs 16:24 says, 


“Pleasant words are a honeycomb, 


sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”


God’s Word is full of encouragement.

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called


Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s 


deceitfulness,” Hebrews 3:13 tells us. 



First Thessalonians 5:11 says, 


“Therefore encourage one another and build


 each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 


Throughout the Bible we see instructions 


to encourage one another


 and verses that are meant to encourage us. 



Why is encouragement emphasized in the Bible? 


Primarily because encouragement is necessary


to our walk of faith.


Without encouragement hardship becomes 


meaningless, pointless, and burdensome.


Without encouragement one's will to press on wanes.


Encouragement makes it easier to live in 


a fallen world in a holy way. 


Encouragement makes it easier to love as Jesus loved 


(see John 13:34-35). 


Encouragement gives hope (Romans 15:4).


Encouragement helps us through times of discipline 


and testing (Hebrews 12:5). 


Encouragement nurtures patience and kindness


 (see 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 and Galatians 5:22-26).


 Encouragement makes it easier to sacrifice 


our own desires for the advancement of God’s kingdom. 


In short, it is a blessing to be a blessing.


I am not a preacher or teacher, but I know, first hand 


that life can be difficult. 


I believe to “exhort,” “urge,” “encourage,” “give joy,” 


and “comfort” is what God created some people 


to do and be.


I am so humbled by God's willingness 


to love and forgive someone like me.


I am forever grateful to God that I am blessed 


to have the liberty to share edifying messages 


that can positively impact and uplift lives 


internally, externally, and eternally.


This website was created to serve as a vehicle to share 


the Good News about God's wondrous love for us, 


His mighty power, and the wonderful ways 


He will bless us and has blessed us.


The Scriptures teach us that we should desire to tell others 


about God's goodness, God's wisdom, God's grace and 


mercy towards us. 


Yes, we should to tell about God's Omnipresence, 


His presence everywhere at the same time, 


that He is Omnipotent... He is all-


sufficient, and His Omniscience, 


He knows all things.



How amazing it is to tell others how you experienced 


God... when He kept us from falling. 


Some may not realize that God controls


and quiets storms, and God can do far more abundantly 


than all that we ask or think.


God is the Good News...


God is our Solution.


I believe as we let God's light shine through us... 


others will desire to know the Source of our joy.


Sharing positive messages that will bless another heart


is not to secure applause and/or accolades 


or to stimulate and flatter the ego.



In sharing the Good News with others... 


both the messenger and the recipient 


can be blessed in gaining enthusiasm, 


they can become more positive and faithful, 


they can feel more satisfied with life, 


and become a better person 


who has come to realize God. 



The benefits of sharing the Good News 


has a rippling effect and can change lives 


for the better.



My goal and soul desire is to surrender all... 


anddo God’s Will,


to honor God with my gifts and talents, 


and not allow side liners to discourage me.
