Lifting Someone Up

Helping someone

I came across a scripture for the day, on the ‘Bible Gateway’ site, and I am thankful that I have. The scripture was in James 1:22 (NIV) that says “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

Whenever I share my posts, messages, or replies with all of you, I am being honest with all of you about whatever topic that is mentioned; even if I just give you a simple “Like” with no comment to follow behind it. It’s not because I believe that the “Like” was enough, but on the other side of this blog, I tried to remain strong and focus on writing instead of worrying about my outside troubles, pain, and noises. For example: I made a previous post about overcoming fears, when in fact, I was dealing with my own personal forms of fears. One fear was that, since I have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), when will I die and how will I die? Am I taking the right medications and am I on the right injection (Rebif helps me) to help combat my MS? By my family and I just recently dealing with a massive of family losses in 2016 and ongoing through this year, the nerves in my body isn’t as settled as it had been before.

Now, I’m not writing this message to point out my pain, but rather, it’s a message to aid me and help me whenever I feel bad or feel like giving up on things in my life. Whenever I reply a good message to anyone or even give you a “Like”, that is a reminder for me to come back and reread all of your messages and words again ‘FOR MYSELF’ because I need to. I need to read those messages and listen to your messages and share with you whatever message I may have. At the same time, I, too, need to revisit and review my messages as well to help keep me in line and the direction God wants me to follow and pursue.

Little you may know is that you all have been helping ‘me’ to climb over my stockpile of trouble in my life, and I am truly blessed and grateful to all of you. I needed you in my life, despite the fact of how far I am physically away from all of you, but spiritually is a whole new different ballgame when it involves Jesus Christ. ūüôā So again, THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!

You Are The Light of This World

John 3:16-17 (NIV) quotes “For God so loved¬†the world that he gave¬†his one and only Son,¬†that whoever believes¬†in him shall not perish but have eternal life.¬†For God did not send his Son into the world¬†to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

Luke 19:10 (NIV) explains Jesus’ mission on earth being “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV) says that “You are the light of the world.¬†A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.¬†Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.¬†In the same way, let your light shine before others,¬†that they may see your good deeds¬†and glorify¬†your Father in heaven.”

John 8:12 (NIV) – “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,¬†‚ÄúI am¬†the light of the world.¬†Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.””

I needed to take some time and think about the question: “Who is the LIGHT of this world?” Ultimately, as mentioned in John 8:12, Jesus spoke that “He is the light of this world”, which is true. He is the Son of God, a lineage relationship that can never be broken away from our Father (God) in Heaven.

Question: “But if that is true, then how can I, a human being living on the plains of this earth, be a light?”

Inside of each of us is a spirit, a spirit full of energy and light that urges to break out and share God’s Words and urges to connect with everyone and anyone that needs to be helped. Your own spirit is a light onto this world that truly needs to be shared. How? Do what you love to do. Example: If you are an instrumentalist and loves to play music, use your blessings to, not only play for your friends and the community, but play it for God. The Head Man that is always blessing us with gifts that we don’t even deserve to have. Whatever your skill or talent may be, think of Him at the forefront of your mind, because (to be honest) we will not be here today without Him.

Yes, Jesus is the Light of our lives, but at the same time, it felt as if He has passed the baton to all of us. He wants us to love one another, help one another, and to even pass our knowledge and our words down for generations. I love to write my poetry and inspiring messages so that I can at least encourage a soul and help someone who may need it most. This… is my spiritual gift that I love to do and share.

We all are lights in this world in our own way and can inspire to save a soul from being immune to darkness and believing that their lives aren’t worth living. The truth is that it is and we can do something about helping them to replace their broken light bulbs. ūüôā

I Have Love For My Brothers and Sisters

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‚Äôs message¬†rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia‚ÄĒyour 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‚ÄĒJesus, 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.
