Are you waiting to cleanse your sinful ways before coming to Jesus? Trust me—it won’t happen!
No one can become free of sin—not until we see Jesus face to face. Not until our presence in this sinful world transcends to His heavenly realm. Not until that nano-second after God calls us home.
1 John 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
When the opportunity arrises to share Jesus with others, which Christians are called to do, many ideas pass through our minds. Ideas concerning not how great accepting Jesus will make the other person “feel”, but on how that person’s possible rejection of Jesus will make us “feel”.
I know on occasion I have factored in the possibility of rejection, and chose not to talk about my Lord and Savior. Bad decision! When that happens, we both miss out! Continue reading
Does the idea of joy and peace seem lost to you? If the answer to that question is yes, reading the book of Romans is a good place to help you find direction.
Written by the apostle Paul before he arrived in Rome, Paul wrote the new Christians there a letter. Paul’s message in his personal letter clearly offers them hope in a loving God through Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Discussions about God sometimes evolve from random conversations with friends. When this happens in the circles I socialize with I really enjoy it because sports and politics usually override group conversations. Many times when these biblical topics arise, the discussions include questions regarding truths that I totally believe and have some knowledge of.
I always try to communicate to others what I know about these truths, but on many occasions I realize my lack of knowledge on the subject. The Bible contains sixty-six separate books with God’s word spoken from the beginning of time. That’s a lot of information! Continue reading
Praise God! For the past six weeks we’ve sought His perfect plan.
Speak out loud your thankfulness to God right now:
Thank you, LORD, for Calling me, for the Plan you prepared for me, for the Promises you made me which never change. Thank you, LORD, that I Believe those promises and so receive your Blessing on my plan. Amen. Continue reading
Thank you for praying and worshiping with me these past five weeks! Only two more weeks to go in this series. I pray Holy Spirit has worked in your heart and helped you along your path, just as He helps me.
By now, you should have a clearer understanding of God’s plan for you. Something must be touching your heart that you should or should not do in you plan. This seven week series started as a way to share with you how I commune with God, walking in faith to get my Christian screenplay, THE PLAN, read and eventually produced.
I hope my journey trusting God inspires you to start/continue trusting God, as we both seek our plan.
I prayed on THE PLAN before I wrote it, asking for discernment. I prayed for ten months while writing THE PLAN for God’s complete direction. Now, I continue to pray as I stand on His word sharing with you specific scriptures I read daily. I believe in His blessing; expecting more that I can ask or image for THE PLAN. Continue reading
Let us continue to seek the perfect plan God made for each of us.
If you are new to the blog, please read my last three posts: “Christian Screenwriter Seeks God’s Plan“, “God Called Me!” and “God’s Plan For Me!”. We are in the middle of worshiping God as we thank Him for all He has done and will do as we seek His plan. Faithfully, we stand firm on God’s word, striving to follow His way.
We are never alone in the plan God made for each of us. He is right here, holding our hands as we press on. Thank Him for that comfort. Thank Holy Spirit for working in your heart as you understand God’s plan. Thank Jesus that no matter how life unfolds on earth, His death assures us perfect eternal peace.
Acknowledge God for His promises to you!
As we continue to seek the perfect plan God made for each of us. . .
Thank you for stepping out in faith! We are walking on water here! We are continuing to move outside our comfort zone as we seek God’s plan. If you are new to the blog, I suggest you read my last two posts, “Christian Screenwriter Seeks God’s Plan” and “God Called Me!”, just to catch up.
We are on the third week of a seven week series, designed to worship God for who He is, to thank Him for all He has done and will do, praying to better understand the plan He prepared for us. Let’s begin by positioning our hearts to know God is awesome! Continue reading
Let’s seek the perfect plan God made for each of us.
Last week I shared C – P – P – B – B; five plans of God:
We are called by God, and He created a plan for each of us. He made promises to us, and to believe affords blessings.
This week starts the first of five weeks where I share seven specific Bible verses, inspired by Holy Spirit, on each of those Five Truths. As we individually seek out God’s plan, let’s start with praise for being called by God. Position your heart and thank Him right now for all He’s done in your life; the people around you, and situations (good and bad) that have led you here today.
(If you are new and seek a better understanding of God’s plan for you, check out last week’s post.)
We Lift Him Up when we follow His plan.
Whenever we strive to understand and carryout God’s plan for us, we glorify His name. Why? Because God designed each of us for a purpose. When we seek, then carry out that purpose, it shows we acknowledge Him. And by acknowledging Him we Lift Him Up, thus demonstrating desire to carry out His plan.
As I seek God’s plan for me, I’ve prayed that I am teachable and willing. Now, it’s time to walk on water! I’m putting my faith in five of God’s truths that have helped me to understand His plan for me: Continue reading
