Easy Like Sunday Morning

One of the fruits of the spirit is peace (Galations 5:22/23). Peace is like the proverbial Sunday morning. No hustle and bustle. Just easy-breezy peace. 

Peace can mean a whole bunch of things to different people. For me it means calmness, serenity, and tranquility. It's about having all of those things during chaos or when insanity is happening all around us. It's something that usually happens when a person is rooted and anchored in the Lord God (see September 7th, 2016 blog post).

God gives us peace in the midst of a storm. If we will believe in Him and His ability to give us a peaceful strength when those pounding waves come, He will calm the seas for us if we need Him to. That's what Jesus did for His disciples when they didn't have enough faith that they could do it themselves. In other words, we always know Jesus has our back. He's so awesome, He gives us the power to calm the storms ourselves in His name. That's right. We can tell our problems, setbacks, sadness, pain, and depression to "get gone" through our faith in the Lord. And with hard work on our part all of that craziness will leave us. I'm not saying by no means, that any of it will be easy or quick. I'm just telling you that if we will just believe that we have the God-given power over our circumstances God will ensure we have peace throughout it all if we will ask Him for help. And that peace will be the very thing that will get us to the next level in God. And when we go to the next level in God that gives us even more power to combat and fight our storms with a peaceful countenance.  

Our faith in God will translate to our peace with God. You follow what I'm saying? Peace in God through faith -- "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1). 

I'm not making any of this up. Matthew 8:23-27 is further proof.  You can read that for yourself too.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
