“But I will not have compassion or feel sorry. I will do to them what they have done to others.”
“You are salt for the earth. But if salt loses its taste, how will it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people.”
Jesus replied, “Tear down this temple, and I’ll rebuild it in three days.”
Should I say I’m tired?
Should I say I’m weary?
Of doing well?
I reached my breaking point.
And I broke.
I gave up hope.
I threw in the towel.
I said, “Forget it. They’ll never listen.”
And then I was purposeless.
And then I had to wake up.
It doesn’t matter if they don’t listen.
You still have to speak the truth.
I’ve been amazed.
When I had given up hope, God showed up.
Don’t underestimate our Lord.
He has a way of getting through.
What can I promise you?
God will overcome.
All your circumstances.
All your trials.
All your doubts and concerns.
He’ll blow them out of the water.
I’ve lived the life of extreme poverty for over three years now.
Just so I could relate to the people I wish to serve.
God took care of me every step of the way.
Trust in Jesus.
He will provide.
It’s amazing how little we truly need.
I think Paul said if we have food and clothes we should be satisfied.
If you need anything, ask the Lord for it.
Be careful to discriminate between want and need.
You’ll be surprised with how little you truly need to survive.
So what are you doing with the rest?
Giving to those in need?
Or spending it on yourself?
I live on food stamps.
Yet, I have enough to share with my homeless friends.
I have a $5 a day food budget.
And sometimes I blow it all on feeding Michael.
If I don’t feed him, who will?
2019 will be a year of breakthrough.
God will break through all the clutter and distraction.
What’s important will bubble up to the surface.
We’ll live like Jesus.
And you know it.
God bless you in your journey.
