Part 3

PRACTICE MAKES PERMANENT!

REALLY SPEND SOME TIME WITH THE LORD IN HIS WORD!

EMBRACE THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD! PRAY WITHOUT CEASING & DRAW CLOSER TO THE LORD EVERYDAY. LEARN TO STAND UPON HIS WORD!

You are NOW an ADULT; therefore you must learn to nurture & grow up the child within YOU! If you are not or were not happy you can become happier… RELEASE WHAT HAS BEEN TO MAKE ROOM FOR WHAT CAN BE… The child within you will and should always be a part of you. In actuality it is the part of you that allows you to have fun. The responsible adult in you is the part of you that seeks a balance. The part of you that  becomes disciplined as you embrace God’s Word. It is important to create a safe healthy home environment.

 

Creating a safe home environment

Seek to DISCIPLINE & CORRECT PROPERLY with PATIENCE rather than punish, reinforce and instill anger within others. The LORD created us to ENJOY life and desires to be the Center of ALL our lives. Marriage, family and home is the first foundational institution the Lord created. There has been much spiritual warfare attempting to destroy it since its inception. God wants each of us to have a rich full life spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. God wants us to have a healthy balance in all areas of our lives. God created us as spiritual beings.

 

God can give you  sound mind!

 

Life can become stressful at times. A small amount of stress is healthy.  Stress alerts you to become mindful of how you are responding to life in general. But you do not have to live every day stressed out.  Allow the inner child in you to responsively have fun. There are many ways to have good wholesome fun. It could be as simple as taking a walk, reading a book, playing chess, a video game, listening to music, taking a relaxing bubble bath, swimming, playing tennis or a sport of choice, watching something funny or interesting on television, or simply taking a relaxing scenic drive. It could be something as difficult as climbing a mountain, parasailing, skiing, painting or taking some laps around a racetrack. This is also a good way to develop coping skills. Just make sure that whatever you do remain safe and focused, stay centered and yes keep Jesus with you.  

 

Learn to work together

It is important to work together to create a healthy home environment that works for You as well as your family.  The healthier you are the better this is for everyone.  So do take care of yourself. For example; I actually enjoy traveling, reading, preaching & proclaiming, God’s Word, working, writing, painting, and networking. We all are quite different. Yet, personally I have always in general been more of a professional productive homebody.  I thank God for technology for you can also virtually go all over the world and still remain in your own safe environment.  This I learned more so during COVID.  We were all somewhat restricted and traveling was not wise or recommended.  

 

This world is ever changing.  There is always something going on somewhere. Always remain alert and aware!   Praise God for His marvelous omnipresence.  But you must discipline yourself.   For whenever you are out and about in this world be very conscious of what is happening around you wherever you are. Learn how to “pray without ceasing.”  Today, people will do and say some of everything. Nothing is sacred to some. I believe in having a “You play, You put away” environment! I like everything in order and being organized yet being comfortable. Structure and having liberal safe healthy boundaries is what makes others feel safe. They also know what to expect and don’t really have to worry about chaos dominating the environment.  Although you do still plan for unexpected interruptions. 

 

 

God has given us much freedom!

 

There is nothing I enjoy more than a God Centered, Spirit-filled Worship Service.  Not simply out of habit, but because worship is important. It takes on different forms.  It is my belief, what we are about or should be about as  Believers/Christians is keeping God as a priority.  Not in a legalistic or fanatical way.  But from the perspective God wants to be a part of every area of our lives.  I can stay in a great worship service all day… I am thankful today you can work, worship, run a company or business and do just about anything from home or a cell phone due to technological advancements…  There are of course exceptions. (So very thankful that the Lord has allowed me to be “In the world but not of the world!”) I am content alone, with a few, many or in a crowd or multitude. We together personally enjoy an active, multi functioning, neat, orderly, yet peaceful domicile. Each of us have different varying temperaments? We enjoy different things and doing a lot of things together. We both can actually preach together.  We enjoy one another’s company and choose not to major in the minors. We have a harmonic symbiotic union. 

You can create a healthy home environment

What do you enjoy doing?

Your home is where you can have whatever environment you choose.  Whatever it is remember that it is important to find a balance in life. Your home should be the one place that you can be comfortable and free… Mutual respect should be a part of the atmosphere. You have a choice everyday what type of home environment you want to create. If you are not happy do something about it.   Change is not always easy for some.   It is best when you start internally. Do not continue to blame your unhappiness on others.   It is important you or all of you together seek to make your home a place of comfort that welcomes healing and the presence of GOD…

 

Life is precious and I truly believe that everyday is a “PRECIOUS GIFT” from the LORD! He is the Creator and Sustainer of life. Live each day as though you are expecting the Christ Jesus to return. If you have not already it is never too late to start.   You do not have to spend every day unhappy. Daily invite the presence of the Lord in and around you to allow the Lord His place within your life. “For it is in HIM we LIVE & MOVE and have our being.” Healing is always possible with the Lord!

 

LIVE BEFORE AN AUDIENCE OF ONE!!!

 

Know that everyone does not want to live in peace. They will do whatever they can to  annoy you and/or disrupt your peace.  They will also try to undermine who you are in the Lord.  This is because they have grown so accustomed to dissension and strife.   Don’t let  them.   I consciously choose to not hang out will gossipers…   Nor prescribe to “group think.”   What I say about you I will say to you.  I am not afraid of any man or woman. Nor do I encourage physical fighting.  As a matter of fact I have never really even had a physical fight with anyone.  I think it is foolish to expend all that energy fighting and the problem is still there and unresolved… Go figure?  However, I do reverently fear God.    “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might…” Stay adorned in His spiritual Armor…  Know GOD and HIS WORD for yourself!!!

 

Always allow the adult in you to keep you responsible and disciplined. Don’t let others control you by remote. There are many that seek to manipulate you into doing what they want you to do.  Self-Control is part of the Fruit of the Spirit. Sometimes it is better to just say nothing when you are amidst those who misunderstand you. Exercising Self-Control yields much inner peace. Always remember that God is Omniscient. You do not have to compromise who you are in Him in order to enjoy yourself and have fun. Nor do you have to become anyone’s puppet. Well unless that is of course for the Lord! 

 

GOD did not SAVE US to be unhappy all the time.  Yes, life can get rough some time. Not everyone has good coping skills.  But they can be acquired when desired.  And yes, I realize that there are many with serious depression.   There are all kinds of help available for depression as well. Be diligent seeking what works for you.    I understand that there are some temperaments that are very impulsive.  They even argue with their hands.  They will go off like a time bomb.  They are also ready to throw, punch, slap or hit anything or anyone when they are angry or should I say “mad?”  Beware!  When you know this is the case keep your distance from them. The bible even tells us do not argue or fight with a fool.  But you still can learn to discipline yourself…  Do not go into denial.  Be aware & alert!!!   

 

It is important to readily admit however you are feeling and then take the necessary action to responsibly take actions whenever necessary.  A lot of time just taking a few moments to be still and let the time past is sufficient.   It is a choice to make inner “Peace” your desired goal. You can always find contentment and peace in the Lord!  It is written; “He will keep you in perfect Peace if your mind is stayed on HIM.” Scripture works. It is not to just quote, but to actually embrace an implement within our daily lives.  This is why it is so very important to know GOD & HIS WORD for yourself.

 

PRAISE GOD & THANK YOU LORD!

Learn to appreciate who you are becoming in God.  We are forever growing. Learn to also “Guard Your heart!” Not everyone is going to appreciate or like you. Seek the Will & the Way of the Lord above all else. Keeping healthy boundaries are important. Remember God is Omnipresent we can call upon Him 24/7. He has given us HIS precious Holy Spirit, His Comforter to help us in any and all situations. Comfort you He will! Thank God for our Lord & Savior Christ Jesus!  He saves us or can save us from allowing sin to rule within our lives.

 

It is written;

“In your PATIENCE possess ye your soul!”  Luke 21

 

PRAY for DISCERNMENT! For we live in a time when GOOD is called evil and evil is called good! There is much that has nested itself within the midst of GOD’S CHURCH that is not of HIM in these latter days. There has always been something from the beginning.  Notice how in Revelation John was writing to the Church. There was something more or less going on in each place of worship that needed to be improved.  I have learned people will even try to fight you in worship.  By the way, Do not argue for a seat that they feel is theirs’s?  Think about it?  It is really kind of revealing where they are spiritually…   Don’t go there.  It is good to regularly take an evaluation of yourself, wherever you worship or wherever the Lord has assigned you.  Be prayerful and mindful at all times what is going on around you.  It is very important to stay in the WORD!  Again, God’s Word is our necessary essential Spiritual Food for our mind, body as well as our souls!

 

 

KNOW this; Through CHRIST JESUS THERE IS VICTORY! “Grace & peace is multiplied by the knowledge of God.” I Peter 1  But you must learn to embrace the TRUTH of HS WORD in order to grow in GOD’S GRACE.

 

 

GOD is more than able. GOD wants us to become complete in Him! You cannot change what has been. But you can start anew from where you are. Begin to Allow the “JOY of the LORD to be your STRENGTH!”   Take regular Spiritual Baths in HIS WORD. As You embrace its TRUTH you will discover that it is “Alive and Powerful!” Finding a balance is key… GOD can heal any heart and any home. Remember He is our Creator and Maker. Daily invite HIS presence in and around you. This is also what builds HIS CHURCH. Christianity is supposed to be a daily lifestyle. Not just a midweek or weekend activity. “

 

“We are HIS people and the sheep of HIS pasture… ” That is those of us who have truly accepted Christ Jesus into our hearts as our Savior & Lord.   It means we have committed to be governed by His Word.  Not in a legalistic way.  But allowing it to be the barometer by which we determine what is right and wrong.  Keep in mind that the building is not God’s Church; it is a place of worship where we come to gather together.  Where we congregate together with others to worship, praise & give thanks to Almighty God!  Where we encourage nonbelievers to come into the fellowship of believers…   Know that as a Believer your Body is the Temple of the Living God. It is within us as Believers His Holy Spirit resides. Ask the Lord to fill you as frequently as necessary.

 

This is what He teaches us in His Word:

 

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own…” I Corinthians 6

GOD CAN MAKE YOU WHOLE!

 

THERE IS ALWAYS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT!

 

As Believers know GOD has NO Grandchildren. So, it is never too late to learn. We can daily grow in HIS GRACE, WISDOM & KNOWLEDGE! “GOD IS LOVE!” a part of love is correction.  Correction feels negative to some since it makes them uncomfortable.  When many talk about God’s Love they think about what makes them feel good yet exercise very little patience. They don’t want to suffer yet longsuffering is a part of His Love as well. WE must learn to firmly STAND upon GOD’S WORD don’t be swayed by every “wind of doctrine.”  There are some who teach what they have been taught over what the Word of God says. Spend time with the Lord in HIs Word.  His is why it is important to know HIs Word for yourself.  Allow Him to refresh and renew Your Spirit! We are but shaped formed dust. He is the Magnificent Potter! He can mend your broken heart. He can shape and mold you into a “Designer’s Original!” Yes, correction is also a part of Love. Trust is also a very important part of Love. When you allow GOD His place within your lives it brings about harmony! In a Covenant Marriage when on one accord GOD continually knits your hearts together in a beautiful way as ONE in HIS LOVE!

 

We can always & forever Trust GOD to be GOD! As long as HE has us on this side of HEAVEN it is to daily grow in HIS LOVE, GRACE, WISDOM & KNOWLEDGE!

 

Live before an audience of One! We serve an Omnipresent God and He is everywhere we are. Being close to the Lord gives you true Security & Significance. You realize that there is nothing more important in life than to live your life to please Him. There is no greater security blanket than to be Covered by the LORD!

 

~ CHILDREN & PARENTS ~

 

CHILDREN OBEY YOUR PARENTS IN THE LORD, FOR THIS IS RIGHT!
“HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER” ~ WHICH IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT WITH PROMISE! THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH YOU AND THAT THEY MAY ENJOY LONG LIFE ON THE EARTH.

FATHERS DO NOT EXASPERATE YOUR CHILDREN; INSTEAD, BRING THEM UP IN THE TRAINING AND INSTRUCTION OF THE LORD…” EPHESIANS 6

If someone is caught in a sin you who are SPIRITUAL should seek to restore him (or her) gently…”Galatians 6

Invite the Lord into your home. Invite the Lord int o your heart. It will make all the difference in the world. After all you are planning to spend Eternity with HIM? RIGHT?  Well, I don’t want GOD to be a stranger  when I see Him face to face. 


CHRIST JESUS CAME; THAT WE ALL MIGHT HAVE AN ABUNDANT LIFE IN EVERY WAY! Abundant is relative. It can be more or less depending on each individual. EVERYDAY; BLESS HIS HOLY NAME! FOR HE IS THE DAY MAKER and the WAY MAKER. YES INDEED, HE IS ABSOLUTELY “AWEWONDERFUL!!!
