Life is too short to allow man’s evil words and deeds 

to reside in our mind or spirit. 

We must move past the past 

and keep pressing on to higher ground 

where people are progressive, growing spiritually, 

and trying to do God’s Will.

High souls, who are trying to do God's Will, 

would see gossiping and slandering as being petty, 

a waste of precious time, and beneath their dignity.

I know I am far from perfect. 

Actually, no one is perfect – 

apart from Jesus. 

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, 

which I could never earn, 

kept us. 

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. 

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.
