To God our Savior, who alone is wise, be the glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.
This is an excerpt from the weekly devotional book, Three Minutes with God, by Pastor Jarvis Bailey. Basically, the people important in our lives will not always understand our motives or agree. Jude did not initially follow Jesus, but once he figured out Jesus was who He said he was, he did. In my life I have actually experienced similar situations. There are even times I don't fully understand, but I do what I truly believe is the path God has given me. Those who are real will understand, because in the end it all comes together. I have faith all will see what I believe my purpose is, because it's just a matter of time I will be living it. When I finish I will have made my mark.
You can't be afraid of being you to the fullest! I mean being the best you possibly can be! You can't hold bacck. You can't over think. There is no room for doubting your capabilities. Be the best you. Be the best at what you do. And your best should is worth it!
So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. "
This is an excerpt from the weekly devotional book, Three Minutes with God, by Pastor Jarvis Bailey. I love this scripture, because it reminds me that time is of the essence. I am a firm believer that everyone on this planet has a purpose. It is wise to value the time we are given to make a difference in this world. It is wise to understand our purpose and fully invest in it, because God has set a number of days for us to accomplish our ultimate purpose. I am fully aware of what my purpose is, and have been investing in it for years. Every day is a day at work to fulfill my purpose. Are you working to fulfill God's plan for your life?
This has been a long process. You have to be patient. Whether someone picks me or not, you just have to want it. "
This is so motivating. Know that things take time. Everything has a process. Be patient and be ready. If you really want it, it will come to you.
There is so much to come in our future. Everyone has dreams, and those dreams will come to fruition. The best is yet to come! I'm excited for the path I am on.
So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me. " "
This is an excerpt from the weekly devotional book, Three Minutes with God, by Pastor Jarvis Bailey. In order to fully give our all to Jesus Christ we need to make sacrifices. This calls for surrendering wordily possessions, or plans we create for our own path. To fully be guided by the Lord you have to be selfless and surrender.
No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. "
Take your idea and run with it. Who knows how big it could get, and how much of a reality it's capable of being. R.I.P. Robin Williams.
Success could be taking that next step in your life, whether big or small. As long as you are always progressing, advancing, and chasing after those dreams or goals, you are successful. The moment you stop, you have failed. Follow your dreams.
For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place ... Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this? "
This is an excerpt from the weekly devotional book, Three Minutes with God, by Pastor Jarvis Bailey. Truth will come with the right question. Nobody knows actual fate, but the Lord above. He has a plan for everyone. I strive to stay on His path, because who knows? It could be my time. :)
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
