Power of life and Death 

         
as i sit, reflecting on what i have learned i sit in awe of the simple fact that we hold the power of life and death in our words, in your tongue.

  • Ephesians 6:10 says “Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might.”
  • Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue”


 your words have a power in them that can almost determine the fate of another. the immense simplicity of this can allow you to read over it without letting it sink in. so with that said I’ll say it again - YOU HOLD THR POWER OF LIFE AND DEATH IN YOUR WORDS - words have great power and these words specifically hold this power of life I've been talking about.
so let it sink in.
we as people can say one thing as plain and simple as how i just told it to you but the meaning behind it could turn someones life in a whole new direction. it can destroy a life but it can also bring a life to eternal life. so as i sit, reflecting on this simple truth i humble myself and i with careful consideration i think about what i say how this can bring you to life, in Jesus name.


WE ALL CAN BRING LIFE TO SOMEONE BY OUR WORDS & ACTIONS 

WHAT ARE SOME WORDS OF LIFE THAT YOU CAN THINK OF + FAVE SONG ABOUT THE POWER OF GOD

My Random thoughts about Instagram 



I took a week break from Instagram.
Today I signed back in and scrolled through the 7 days of posts and pictures.
I didn’t really think about it till after I closed my app & finished getting ready for the day. But here’s the thing, later I found myself thinking “wow my pics really aren’t that great.... I really should try and take better pictures” and I wish I had more followers.........
honestly it was kind of an oppressive feeling & I was like Whoa where is that coming from? The fear. The insecurity.
WHY??
Why am I feeling this way?
Why do I feel the need to try and be like others? Why wouldn’t I want to be myself.
Why do I give into that feeling of fear?
 Why do I let that rule my life?
Being afraid is a trap. Listen to what God has to say about that


It’s easy to say I don’t  but so much harder to actually live out those words. To say when that feeling of I’m not good enough comes whispering in your ear NO WAY. Not this time. & you proclaim the power of God over your life & thoughts. Because either we walk in the peace and security of Jesus or we live a fearful insecure life that is ruled by satan. & I know that lots people have talked about some of the same things I’m saying rn and probably do a much better job at it BUT here’s the thing, I don’t care. I’m not trying to sound a certain way or be a certain thing. These are my thoughts. The thoughts of a 18 year old rambler.
I’ve come to the  conclusion  that Instagram ( social media ) is not going to rule my life. I want to live an abundant life & fear has no place in that life!! It’s a journey. Every day is a struggle but thankfully I serve a patient and loving Father.
  I chose to live with JoY.
ps. This post went wayyyy off what I was originally going to say but I hope you were able to follow along w my ramblings. xxxx
HONEST THOUGHTS??? HAVE YOU STRUGGLED W SOCIAL MEDIA INSECURITIES??? + WHAT DID YOU DO THIS SUNDAY??

My Anthem 


             

I’ve got a lot of words stored up in this brain. I’ve got a lot of emotions held up in this heart. But how do I get it all out?

Sometimes I wonder if I could do better,  if I could just be better at sharing how I feel with others. Instead of running it through my head. A lot can go wrong doing that. I love to study why people are the way they are and how their parents and peers affect them.

My parents show me lots of grace. My siblings give me grace when I mess up. my friends  show me immense amounts of grace..... which leads me to the question. Why? Why me? Why do the so  readily hand out Grace to me when they know I will probably fail again. I have done nothing to deserve it. As I reflected on this I put the pieces together.

I found something in common.

All of these people.

All of these people who love me with such a gentle, passion, love  Jesus with a POWER. These people love Jesus and put Him in their lives. Every moment of every day.  They put their lives in His hands because they know the truth of exactly where their going. They know that the grace of Jesus is going to meet them there. Right where their at. Isn’t that amazing!!!

This is my anthem these days. Grace is an incredible thing. I hope you reflect on it and thank the people who give it to you.

It’s strong. It’s ardent. It’s steadfast. And it will take you far. I love Jesus guys. I really do. That’s why I smile. My heart beats to this simple truth and I hope it clicks with you.
