Two Words, One Scripture--Day 5

Friends, our thoughts are so connected to our spiritual and physical health that we would be wise to follow this scripture to the letter. Getting our thoughts to line up with this scripture will be a battle but with the help of the Lord and our refusal to give up, we can win. The very next time a thought pops up that is ratchet (tore up and stanky), search the Word and/or ask the Lord for a replacement thought. Do this until you change your mind. Now go forth and be renewed. Amen. #twowordsonescripture

Two Words, One Scripture--Day 4

I can’t imagine why anyone would half step when it comes to praising God. High praise is unconditional and does not depend on circumstances or feelings. High praise is your best sound to let the Lord and anyone else listening know that you appreciate Him.
It just makes sense to couple high praise with that two-edged sword also known as the Word of God. You get into and start working the Word and allowing the Word to work in your life, you can’t help but give God your best praise. It’s better than exciting to have your eyes opened to the truth about everything. Where else can you make one stop and get encouragement, direction, hope, instruction, inspiring stories, wisdom and a love letter with your name on it? That sword is described as two-edged because there is something in it for you and for somebody on your pathway too.
Friends, we may not know what 2015 may look like but it is mighty glorious to know that our God has given us keys to make our way sweet. Now somebody ought to comment Hallelujah!

# Two Words, One Scripture-Day Three

Friends, when we consistently put off until tomorrow what we could do today, we may be motivated by a deep need to be in control or we simply are afraid of the outcome of timely action.
Far too many of us had rocky beginnings and picked up bad habits without which we would not have survived. We could not be in control of who loved us or how well they took care of us etc, so we had to find a way to BE IN CONTROL of something. "They want me to move fast, but I'm going to do this my way!" Even when those survival habits like being last minute or always late cease to serve us well, we do it anyhow. Bad habits are hard to break, right?
Then too, we put off acting in a timely fashion because we have learned to fear the outcome. We put off going to the doctor or telling so and so the truth because we want to avoid the drama, the trauma, the rejection. Hmmmh! The outstanding news is that if we ask Him and obey what He says, the Lord will teach us to number our days. God will teach us to wisely count every moment and make every moment count. '
So, who's up for the challenge?

Now somebody holler help me Jesus!!!
