Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.” (Galatians 6:7-8)
While digging into the subject matter, I decided to use my own personal study on Karma and  “You reap what you sow.” I also pulled a few other thoughts from “I Believe with  Britnee B.” and Jennifer H. Let me begin with what sowing and reaping is not. It’s ...

Hebrews 4:12-13, “For the Word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account” (AMP)
  Well, if we are to be completely honest, there are those days when we simply don't have time to wash our hair or get it to look just right, so what do we do? We cover it up, and some of us with a hat! Now, for a bad hair day, that is acceptable and even u...

Hebrews 11:5-6, “By an act of faith, Enoch skipped death completely. “They looked all over and couldn’t find him because God had taken him.” We know on the basis of reliable testimony that before he was taken “he pleased God.” It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because ANYONE WHO WANTS TO APPROACH GOD must first believe both that He exists and that He cares enough to respond to those who seek him.” (MSG)
This story is told of a bulldog and a poodle who were arguing one day ( don’t laugh ). The bulldog was making fun of the poodle,  calling him a weak little runt who couldn’t do anything.  The bulldog said, “ I challenge you to a contest. Let’s see who can o...

Proverbs 13:12, “Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a…good break can turn life around.” If you’re still living—then disappointment is inevitable! With that said, here are some examples to help you when:
1.. Your Disappointed With Those You Look Up To:   Think of Samuel and Eli  ( 1 Samuel 1-4 ).  Samuel’s mother entrusted her child to Eli the High Priest, confident he’d mentor and prepare him for God’s service. But Eli had a serious character flaw! He was ...

Daniel 2:19, “…and then Daniel praised the God of heaven…” (TLB) Now, if you were to ask my husband or children they would be the first to say I am a big kid! And truth be told, I unapologetically admit, they’re absolutely right! And one of the things that ...

“The Spider skillfully grasps with its hands, and it is in kings’ palaces” (Proverbs 30:28 NKJV)
Everything A Spider Needs To Survive And Succeed In Life, God Put WITHIN IT!  Swipe it with a broom and before it hits the ground, its fall is broken! It just reaches INSIDE, releases another protein-filled silk-like thread, slides down, finds a safe place,...

Praying To God Is Like Talking To A Friend On The Phone. You Can’t See Him, But You Are 100% Certain He’s Listening. When A Man Works, A Man Works, But When A Man Prays, God Works!
We are always relying on God. We always Have and we always Will.
Sometimes you have to stop talking and let God be the spokesman. God
want us to pause before responding to people or situations giving His
spirit space to act through you. Rather than try...
