Walk On…

Aug
25

Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling as if you just can not possible go on any longer than you have already gone? Does it ever feel as if you have took the last step that you can take and far too weak for more?

just-walk-awayBe not afraid and be not discouraged, times can get unsettling every now and then and it sure can seem as if we have reached our final destination but just when we think it might be the end it turns out to be the beginning of something beautiful, isn’t that amazing, I think it is, here’s what we must do though on our own, we have to be willing to walk on bravely and boldly through the hardships and whatever else it is that life may throw our way we have to be ready no matter what.

Reba McEntire’s song ‘Walk On’ is in no doubt the inspiration of today’s blog post, I was listening to it in the early of the morning one day and I have always loved it, the lyrics are rather plain and simple like a lot of famous country songs, it encourages you to move forward with determination and will power through all that may come your way because we know that life will get us down and may even knock us to on the ground every now and then but we just need to walk on through all the pain and tears, because there is indeed something better coming our way.

The Best Is Yet To Come:

I am constantly saying this, because it’s true, if we hold out for a little bit longer we will be given a great surprise that’s for sure. So many times people come to Christ thinking that this way is easy and filled with great luxury but that’s only because they are fed a lie from ‘Pastors’ that just want to get someone in the pew to pay the tithes, and I’m not saying living for Christ doesn’t have it’s perks because it really does it just isn’t the riches of this world or anything material like most would have you think, and that doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t OK to have nice things either but the point is, going to Christ for nice things really isn’t the right way to go about it.

We are to trust and obey him in all things and he will lead us to his perfect will, in many cases he is sitting and waiting for us to move, because while we think that we are waiting for him to move, he has already moved in a greater manner than we could ever imagine, sometimes it takes opening our eyes to see the greatness that is set out before us, we must believe with everything in us that everything we may go through both good and bad is for a reason and a purpose, a ‘good’ reason and a ‘good’ purpose.

In Conclusion:

This may be hard for many of us to comprehend but we must not be dismayed, because it is the truth of his word, it is the beauty of his way, in the scripture it tells us that all things will work together for his good.

  • And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28 KJV

Amen to that, amen? So many times we can get caught up in worldly reasoning and we forget that God is higher in his ways then we are, and his thoughts are not the same as our thoughts, he knows all and sees all, he is the beginning and end, we are told in the scripture that to everything there is a plan, a purpose and a season, we must trust and believe in him at all times, for he is worthy of his praise and he is justified in his ways.

Thank you for reading today and I hope that it has been of some encouragement to you, until we meet again I pray that you all be uplifted in Spirit and health.

Kindness

May
28

It was the year 2013 sometime during the month of December and I remember it rather clearly because that is when my mom was training to work for the postal service and my uncle and me would get up early in the morning to take her, it was also a chance for us to shop for Christmas while she was in class.

inspirational-quote-act-of-kindness-aesopI remember walking into this Life-Way store, (for those who don’t know, Life-Way is a Christian bookstore that has all sorts of fabulous ‘Jesus’ items for everyone) I was looking for something special for my mom and my grandma, I was able to find them both something just right for a fraction of the cost which I just LOVE doing, I remember that the last time I went which was just a few days prior to that I had gotten a coupon for 35% off of any of their regular priced items. It turns out the item I had purchased an item that was already discounted so I couldn’t use my coupon, I was so very sad to hear that since it was going to be one of the last times that I would be in that area, I can recall looking around to see if anyone had anything that was a regular priced item and I wanted to find someone just right.

This woman comes around the corner holding something in her hands and looking back I am not really sure what it was but I do know that when she replied to me she said ‘yes’ that she did indeed have a regular priced item, I believe she was a rather small younger woman but still much older than myself and I noticed she was all dressed up in the winter fashion with a scarf and hat on with a bright holiday smile on her face radiating all the world with her Christmas Spirit, what I did next took her by surprise. I offered to give her my coupon, I asked her if she would like to have it and if she felt it would make any difference to her and she light up like a house decked out in Christmas lights and she wanted to make sure that I was certain in my decision to let her have my coupon and I told her yes, if she needed it and would take it then it was hers.

She leaped with gratitude and repeatedly thanked me for my kindness, she told me that times hadn’t been so easy for her lately and that my selfless act of kind giving would really help her and that she couldn’t thank me enough, I felt so happy that day, even though I didn’t get to use my coupon that I really wanted to. I still got to find a gift for my family for a great price and I also got to help someone else save money and get their loved one a great gift for a great price too and that is what life is all about my friends.

Small Acts:

No matter how small we think an act of kindness may be, we need to realize that what we might take for granted or what it is that we might think of as small and meaningless, others think of it as something amazing, something to be valued, something to be exceedingly grateful for, something that we shouldn’t take for granted, because what we think of as something we deserve and should have, others actually don’t have it and they can only with for what we have.

The next time you think that you can’t make a difference in someones life because the difference may be too small don’t be so foolish, don’t you allow yourself to be caught up in that type of thinking because you would be wrong, the reason for that is because God cares greatly about all the impacts we might have on someone big or small and I still like to believe that no matter how dark this world may seem, there are still those out there who also care about all acts of kindness, no matter how big or small they may be.

Because it means something to them, it shows that there are still people in this world that cares about others and not only themselves, it shows that there are still people who realize that even though they can’t use something or even though something isn’t right for them, maybe it is possible that it may be right for someone else and instead of throwing away what they can’t use they give it to the person that can.

That’s what it shows.

In Conclusion:

My friends, don’t be fooled, there are still many out there who are kind and just because we think that we are the only good people left out there in this world doesn’t make it true. Just because we are lied to constantly and even though it seems as if the world is full of crooks and even if it is for the most part that definitely does not mean that there isn’t room for something far greater than any of our minds can ever imagine, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t somebody out there who actually wants to help others, someone who actually puts others first, someone who is honest, kind and loyal.

It just means that those people are harder to find, like I have said once before, just because something is hard to do or even if it is hard to believe it does not mean that it is impossible and it does not mean that it isn’t out there, we have to be willing to find it and we have to be willing to look for what we want to find in this world and in many other cases we actually have to be willing to literally BE WHAT we want in this world because there isn’t any greater way of making a difference then by being one.

Thank you for reading today’s post and I hope it inspired you in someway to keep being hopeful in the betterment of humanity that all isn’t lost and I hope that it encouraged you to go out and be a better brighter light and person for Christ as well, may you continuously be uplifted in his name all of the days of your life and until I write again.
