Did you Pray Today

Praying as part of your everyday regimen. Did you pray today, why not? If you did good for you.

Why is praying daily so important?

  1. Great way to stay in faith.
  2. Take a moment to believe for what you want from your life.
  3. Keeps you in communication with God. Always a good thing!
  4. Being humble before God.
  5. Embracing the feelings of prayers being answered, showing gratitude.

Just a few in a huge list of reasons that prayer can and should be a part of your everyday life.

self help, love, faith

Letting God know you’re there as it were. I take what I call prayer walks in the morning times to simply talk to God. Funny note if people see me walking they probably think I forgot to take my medication, talking to myself.

God, knows when I am talking to him from my heart. It helps me start my day. Focused on what is important. Then I simply let God handle it. Not always easy for me, sometimes I feel like he needs my help. Not so much!

If you let life unfold before you staying in faith, the blessings are immeasurable. For times when you think if you don’t jump in everything will come to an end. DON’T! Stay in faith even when you don’t see anything but a disaster. Let it play out, let God know you are grateful that he has blessed you with the answer, Even when you can’t see it yet.

This is why you pray. Stay in faith, be grateful for the answered prayer before it manifests and don’t beg. You don’t have to beg God for anything. For example, someone close to you gets horrible health news. Don’t beg God to save them, thank God that he did save them. Pray for healing and restoration. Just don’t beg for it, you don’t have to beg!

You also don’t have to promise God; “If you just get me through this I will never ____.”

Make prayer a part of your everyday life. If you have kids pray with them. Married, pray with your spouse. Most importantly make sure you and God stay connected.

God bless!

I’m a Cannonball, What?

I was trying to figure out a metaphor about life and God. How does God look at my life in some terms that I can say “I get it.”

This cannon is not designed to hurt anyone, but it will blast through the enemy, self-doubt and related metaphors of this article.

God, metaphor, prayer

If I am this cannonball that is getting stuffed inside a cannon. So God puts the gunpowder in (meaning knowledge to live a beautiful, prosperous life). Then he rolls me down the barrel of the cannon. Goes around the back and I roll out the end of the cannon barrel back on the ground (not staying in faith).

God moves back around lifts me up and rolls me back into the barrel. This time he takes the plunger and really gives me a whack. Bam, Bam, Bam, (trials & tribulations) he keeps pounding me into the barrel.

I roll out again!

Stubborn I keep rolling out of the barrel back on the ground. Not following the purpose of a cannonball (losing faith). I am supposed to be shot out of the cannon (run through life happy joyous and free, my meaning).

Back on the ground God patiently goes back to the front of the cannon grabs me and puts me back in the barrel. Again using the plunger, he pushes me back towards my purpose. Stubbornly I roll myself back out of the end of the cannon to the ground yet again.

Instead of embracing my life purpose, I keep rolling myself away. I’m scared to be shot into my future, my destiny. I don’t know what will happen, I’m afraid, so I keep rolling myself out. Not staying in faith!

So time and time again God puts me back.

Finally!

God reveals to me that he keeps adding powder, pushing me down the barrel (moving me through my life) so that he can go around to light the fuse. God cannot burn the fuse to Blast you through all the naysayers, all your heartache, all your sorrow, all your sacrifices, so FAR beyond what you ever dreamed could ever occur.

If you don’t let God light your fuse. How will you ever know how far past your dreams can blasting out of God’s cannon help you go. Maybe, it’s time to let God light the fuse!!!

What stalls most of us is fear. Without learning to overcome our fear we limit our growth, our passions, and potential. 

success, self help, daily quote

The first step in overcoming any fear is to meet it head-on. Take a step in faith that even if you stumble and fall. You can quickly get back up and try again. Change does not start correctly the first time, but there has to be a first time. 

“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”–Dale Carnegie

The Message Bible Review

The Message Bible is beautiful and comfortable to read the bible. I find myself able to read through much faster, understand and retain more information.

For me, I needed a Bible that was easy to read. Certainly going back to read other versions of the Bible will strengthen your walk. However, we all need a base foundation to build from and this version of the Bible The Message gives you that foundation.

More and more Pastors are teaching from this version. Of the many versions of the Bible such as King James KJV, Amplified AMP, American Standard ASV, and New English Translation NET. So many to choose and certainly all worthy.

Spiritual, Religion, Faith

It’s an amazingly easy read and a wonderfully bound Bible. This Bible is a must read for anyone, but for those new to spiritual life, you will especially love how easy it makes the words of the Bible resonate in your journey. It truly helped me!
