Is it Fair…

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

There are times when we may feel we are being ripped off or someone takes something away from us. This happens more often than we’d like to think. When this happens, we may feel upset or angry and it’s possible that we may take it out on others. This is not good for them or us, but it can be hard to stop. Romans 12:19 says Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

When this type of thing happens, remember that God has a plan for you. You need to pray about the situation you are currently in and ask God to help you get through it. If you didn’t catch yourself in time, you need to pray for forgiveness and then apologize to the person you took it out on and ask for their forgiveness.

You will feel better about yourself and the situation. Remember the next time something like this happens that you need to pray immediately for the strength to deal with it in the proper way.

Give thanks in any situation

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

We all go through tough situations. Whether it is an illness, a death, or financial problems, we have all gone through them. For whatever reason, we have to go through these things. Most times these are attacks from the devil, but going through them and getting through them is the hard part. Telling the devil to go away and move on is hard for most people.

Jeremiah 33:11 says “…Give praise and thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good; for His mercy and kindness and steadfast love endure forever! For I will cause the captivity of the land to be reversed and return to be as it was at first, says the Lord”.

As hard as it may be to be thankful and happy when all of these bad things are going on, you need to. You need to thank God everyday for the good things and that he is helping you stand strong and faithful during your difficult times. You need to listen to him and follow what he says as well.

Standing strong and continuing to stand on your faith can be difficult during hard times. Continue to pray for the courage and strength and God will show you the way and what you need to do. Just remember, God is on your side and he is there to help you every step of the way.

When you do this you will be the winner in your situation and in your life.

Do you have a house of prayer?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes
We all know that prayer is important in our lives. It’s how we ask for forgiveness, it’s how we ask for help, and it’s how we ask for encouragement. Some pray everyday while others pray when they need to. Prayer is something that we should do at least once a day.

Did you know that your house can be a house of prayer if you want it to be?

Matthew 21:13 says “My house shall be called the house of prayer.”

Now this was God talking about his house, but the same can be of your house. All you have to do is ask God for your house to be a house of prayer and then follow what he says.

So it comes back to the same question. Do you have a house of prayer?

Are you being tested?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4 (KJV)

Trouble can come in many forms. It can be a loss of a job or an illness. Most times we pray to God when these types of things test our faith. We need to pray every day for continually income and healthy lives. We need to pray this for all of our friends and family because we can be effected by their trouble as well.

It’s ok that you haven’t done this in the past because you’ve been forgiven. The time to start is now. Don’t wait until your faith is tested. Don’t be embarrassed or feel like you don’t know how to do this. God will lead the way and he will show you what to do and how to do it. So start your day with prayer and you will feel joy and happiness every day.

Rejoice!

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

Rejoice evermore. 1 Thessalonians 5:16 (KJV)

This verse is true in so many ways. When you are feeling down because of the weather or a situation in your life, remember that God is there for you and he will always be there. Lift your problems to him and then be glad and rejoice. God will take care of you and any situation you are in. No matter what it is or what others say about it.

When you walk in God’s footsteps, you will be led in the direction you are to go, so don’t get discouraged or down because the light is at the end of the tunnel and God has a plan. So, do as my Grandma always says. “Keep on the sunny side”!

Do you let others get to you?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes
The economy appears to be in a bit of a slump right now and that can cause people to be down and discouraged. When this happens, people are grumpy and take it out on others or they want you to feel the same as they do. We can’t do that because it’s not God’s desire for us. We need to chose to be cheerful and full of joy each and every day. No matter what happens or what doesn’t happen.
Here is a Bible verse for you to remember when you go out into the world and deal with people.
“Set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth”.  (Colossians 3:2, AMP)

Shirley and Marcy

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Other things

A mom was concerned about her kindergarten son walking to school. He didn’t want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe.

So she had an idea of how to handle it.. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the  mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn’t notice her.

She said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.

The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole week.

As the two walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy’s little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week.

Finally she said to Timmy, ‘Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week?

Do you know her?’

Timmy nonchalantly replied, ‘Yeah, I know who she is.’

The little girl said, ‘Well, who is she?’

‘That’s just Shirley Goodnest,’ Timmy replied, ‘and her daughter Marcy.’

‘Shirley Goodnest? Who the heck is she and why is she following us? ‘

‘Well,’ Timmy explained, ‘every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, ‘cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, ‘Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life’,  so I guess I’ll just have to get used to it!’

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift His countenance upon you,and give you peace.

May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always.. I know you smiled! I sure did, Pass this on and brighten someone’s day!

Bible verses to live by!

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

I’ve been searching the Bible for a couple different Bible verses and found what I was looking for. They are definitely verses to remember, say everyday, and to live by. Here are the three I was looking for.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Matthew 21:22

And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe  that you receive them, and you shall have them.

I hope these verses mean as much to you as the do for me.
