Fruit of the Spirit-Gentleness

May 20, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

The definition of gentleness: free from harshness, sternness. soft, delicate and moderate.

Wonderful qualities for us as Christians to demonstrate our love for Jesus and others.

There is an old quote “We catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”

The Bible says, Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

What To Do When You Can’t Pray

May 13, 2022

Sometimes we are in a place where we can not pray. We may be ill depressed or discouraged. Maybe we are in the middle of something that is sinful. God knows all of our problems and He is waiting for us to pray.

Be honest with God. He has the answer. Tell Him that you do not feel like praying and ask the Holy Spirit to pray for you. The Bible tells us that Jesus is making intercession for us. We can’t hide our thoughts from God.

But, thank Him for loving you and understanding. God wants our praise even when we are unable to pray.

Soon the time of prayer will return and our relationship with God will be even better.

When And How We Speak

April 20, 2022

The Bible tells us a lot about how and when we should speak.

Proverbs 21 gives great advice, we will stay out of trouble if we keep our mouth shut. Angry? Sop! Say nothing. Wait and allow time to cool off before we address the subject.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

James 1:26 – If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

1 Peter 3:10 – For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

These are great verses, and there are many more, that teach us to be careful how and when to speak. God will bless us abundantly if we can ask Him to help us to speak kind, encouraging words.

Move On!

April 6, 2022

Sometimes we let things in our past keep us from moving forward.

The sins, the tragedy or poor relationships keep reoccurring in our mind and we feel depressed or unable to do what we know we should to get on with our life today.

God does not want us to dwell in the past. He has forgiven all our past sin, He wants to comfort our broken heart and heal relationships that have been ruined by pride or unforgiveness..

If anything is keeping you from a joyful, productive life give all of the past to Jesus and move on.

Philippians 3:13-14

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Filipenses 3:13-14

13 Hermanos, yo mismo no pretendo haberlo ya alcanzado; pero una cosa hago: olvidando ciertamente lo que queda atrás, y extendiéndome a lo que está delante, 14 prosigo a la meta, al premio del supremo llamamiento de Dios en Cristo Jesús.

Our Words Are Powerful!

April 5, 2022

There is a little figurine of 3 monkeys, the first has his hands over his eyes, the second, hands over his ears, and the third, his hands over his mouth.

See no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. Good advice for us. If we are careful what we watch and hear we will think before we speak.

The Bible tells us what we speak comes from what we meditate about in our heart. Hid God’s Word in our hearts and our speech will be pleasing to Him as well as to those we are speaking to.

Salmos 19:14 – Sean gratos los dichos de mi boca y la meditación de mi corazón delante de ti, Oh Jehová, roca mía, y redentor mío.

What Do You Think About?

March 30, 2022

How Do You Think?

Sometimes we cannot see good in the situation we are in. Maybe it’s illness, accident, loss of a loved one. In our finite minds we can not understand why things are happening to us..
But, GOD will turn even the worst tragedies in our lives into something good if we will trust Him to bring it to pass. It may take time. Even months or years. Then we look back and we can see how He uses these tests in our lives and turns them into testimonies.

What we think about controls how we live and react to every situation in our lives.
God tells us in His Word what we should think about.
If we think about things that make us not trust God, we become worried and fearful.
One verse tells us how to overcome anxiety. Let us decide today to think on good things and ask God to help us to think about the things in this verse that will bring peace and joy into our lives.

When we praise God. He will show up. When He shows up, it will change our thinking. If we change our thoughts, we change our life.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

En esto pensad -Por lo demás, hermanos, todo lo que es verdadero, todo lo honesto, todo lo justo, todo lo puro, todo lo amable, todo lo que es de.Filipenses 4:8

Our Words

March 18, 2022
Sean gratas las palabras de mi boca y la meditación de mi corazón delante de ti, oh SEÑOR, roca mía y redentor mío. Salmos 19:14

Our words are so important. Words can encourage or discourage how a person thinks and feels.

If we see someone and say, “You look great today.” That person feels good and think they can do anything.

However, say to that same person, “You look tired today, don’t you feel well.” All of a sudden that person feels tired and wants to quit.

Our words! As Christians let us always try to speak from the heart with words that will please our Heavenly Father and encourage those around us.

Have a Blessed Thursday!

Mas los que esperan á Jehová tendrán nuevas fuerzas; levantarán las alas como águilas, correrán, y no se cansarán, caminarán, y no se fatigarán. Isaías 40:31

Prayers Of A Little Child

March 11, 2022

This precious photo of a little child praying. This is not just any child, it is a small boy in the Ukraine, praying for his country.

We need to take a lesson from this photo and pray for not only the people in Ukraine but for people who are going through troubled times all over the world.

Most of us cannot do anything about the situations in our government, but we can pray.

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Mark10:15

De cierto os digo, que el que no recibiere el Reino de Dios como un niño, no entrará en é Marcos 10:15
