A Friend?

How can you call yourself someone’s best friend and continually shatter his or her heart with lies? I’ll never understand deceit in friendships. I thought the purpose was to bond with another person. The friendship loses its meaning when you can’t trust what comes out of the other person’s mouth. It’s even worse when theContinue reading “A Friend?”

The Perfecting of Faith

I gained some powerful insight recently. God is developing and strengthening my faith in this season of my life. Previously, He had me build my trust in Him by looking to Him to help me pull through my trials. Then, I had to receive by faith the prayers I made to Him would be released.Continue reading “The Perfecting of Faith”

God Uses the Least of Us

Every difficulty creates a testimony to bring deliverance to others. God uses the humble and the least of us to show how mighty and miraculous His power truly is. Just as Joseph, Moses, and Esther were hidden until an appointed time, God will also hide us until the appointed time He wants us to operateContinue reading “God Uses the Least of Us”

Yet there is one thing we must always remember… God will hold people accountable for the offense and deceit they commit. It’s one of theContinue reading “Feeling Helpless After Suffering an Offense”

Long-suffering 

There’s a reason long-suffering is a fruit of the Spirit. We can’t produce the level of understanding and patience another human being needs. People are flawed. They progress and regress constantly. Occasionally, they execute both in the same day. God given tolerance is essential to maintaining relationships. When faced with stress or chaos we oftenContinue reading “Long-suffering “

Change: Patience During the Process

God gave me understanding through a song, “The Best in Me,” sung by Marvin Sapp. I correlated it with the understanding I received earlier today,  which was God believes in us because He can  simultaneously see our past, present, and future. I’m so very thankful He can or else I would give up on myContinue reading “Change: Patience During the Process”
