I Have Love For My Brothers and Sisters

HoldingHandsPraying-776x438

1 Thessalonians 1:4-10 (NIV) is a needed and an important reminder and message that we, on earth today, should be grateful for and appreciate to have. It reads: “For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia (regions). The Lord’s message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia—your faith in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.”

Just because we all may be physically, socially, and spiritually different DOES NOT MEAN that I could not appreciate you and love you in my life. I love my family, but that does not mean that because you do not own my family’s last name DOES NOT MEAN that I don’t love you and appreciate you as my sisters and brothers, in Christ. This picture above proves how close and how much we love each other and how we should continue to pray for one another, despite of what is yet to come.

Nowadays, more than ever, I hear about how my brothers and sisters are in pain, crying, and even shouting out loud to be heard, which pains my heart. Just as my picture up above, I will pray along with you, for you, and will forever love you as my own sister and my own brother, in Christ. Imagine that in that picture is all of us holding hands together and praying and calling on the Lord to help support and ease the pains and wipe away the tears off of our fellow members.

There is no such thing as you being exiled out of my family and out of my life… because THERE IS NO LEGITIMATE REASON for you to be. Together, under God, we are much stronger than the enemy’s idea schemes on how we ‘ought to’ or ‘should be’.

I will eternally love you within the depths of my heart because we ALL are family.

His Word Is Our Spiritual Instructor

In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV), it says “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

We hold a mighty book in our possession and within our homes. Let’s say that you are someone that doesn’t own or have a bible within your hand or your home that is not within your grasp. As substitutes, there are many bible platforms and study resources that are available to you. One site I use is Bible Gateway. I will admit that I was referred to this site by a close friend, who also was the one that taught me about Jesus Christ and why I should always stay in prayer and have faith in Him. She is my Sister in Christ and she also bought me my first bible.

I bring all of this up because not only do we have biblical resources (bible, internet, friends, family, bible study groups, etc), but what we have even closer is being able to ‘hear’ God’s messages, the tool to teach others, and we can begin to let it bloom within our brother’s and sister’s hearts as that of a mere seed that needs to sprout. In Matthew 17:20 (NIV), it mentions “He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

It is not impossible for us to share, talk about, and teach others of God’s Word. It is not impossible for us to slow down our busy days, take a moment to relax, and to seek peace within our spirits that came from God. It is not impossible for us to also learn something new and our students are learning something new as well.

In our hands, online, or on paper, we have notes that spoke of the most powerful Words that came from our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, the Son of God who came down to earth and is known as the human form of our Heavenly Father.

I will assure you that every time you read of His Words and what He has done, it is as if there is always a new lesson, a new story, and a new verse that is always teaching us something new that we never had paid attention to the first time we have read the same sentence. It will be all worth it in the long run.

Urge of Late-Night Poetry

Pen-Paper-Writing-Night

This came to me late last night and I made sure to quickly jot down my poetry into my phone before turning into bed. When God has a message for me to hear, I will listen to Him.

1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV), it quotes “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own…”

I will fight for Jesus Christ, 
He is the Head of my life. 
I can't stand how some Christian voices seems to be hidden,
for this world seems to be turning; we all have a voice that God has given.
I see and hear about how Satan chose to corrupt us,
but let me say that I'd rather him and his minions fly away or catch a bus.
It pains me to hear lost souls 
accept the enemy's contract in order to obtain material pleasure such as 
gold.
But beyond any and everything, I will keep praying for my sisters and
brothers,
for in Christ Jesus, we are stronger in unity to strengthen our spirits and
to love one another.
God is VICTORIOUS, and let that be known.
Remember that the life that you are living 'is not our own'. 1 Corin. 6:19
