If you want to arrive at, or achieve excellence in what you are and do.. i.e., as in worship, in witnessing, or in your work.
Listen up, you can get there. The Lord stands ready to help you. As of this second, this very moment, this day, you can simply choose to quit doin' less-than-what's-really-excellent. Sure, do it with right motives and attitude.. as unto the Lord. Pray in faith like you mean it.. cuz you really do. He'll be both pleased and glorified. facebook.com/shareJesus

What's better than happy? Joy is, but be thankful and, "Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties." ~ Helen Keller
"Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord.." 1.1-2ps.amp
"When we are such as He can love without impediment, we shall in fact be happy." ~ C.S. Lewis

Of course, who hasn't felt better after the passing of time, but listen.. if you have a broken heart, just give it to God.

..and to be this way minus spiritual compromise in a world gone astray.. in a world that doesn't mind lying or living a lie.
"Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying." Rev. 22:15
Remember this, before one can fully appreciate hearing the Good News, they've got to hear and understand the bad news. For all have sinned and fallen short.. for the wages of sin is death. All need the second Adam (Jesus Christ) and to be born again in Him, because they actually weren't born right the first time..inside. They...we.. were born in first Adam.
It's not biblical to talk about God saving people, but never tell them to repent, to turn, to change as they trust Christ to save them.
Puttin' your hope in yourself or others without having Jesus as Lord.. ultimately leads to disappointment.

For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8
Discipline without direction leads to drudgery, but discipline coupled with righteous direction leads to godliness. #ask

Tell em now. If you really love em and want to be together later on, then say it. Tell em the Gospel today - bestow it. Sure, if you like em, then let em know It, for many can't read It later when they're dead. (Kinda reminds me of a poem..).

Huh! Without even asking, Husband 1.0 just uninstalled valuable programs at home, such as Romance 9.5 and Listening 7.5 and then reinstalled really buggy programs like NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0.
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance — Particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0, NBA 3.0, and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
What can I do?
First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, While Husband 1.0 is an Operating System.
Please enter the command: "http: I Thought You Loved Me.HTML" and try to download Tears 6.2 and don't forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.
But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta. Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources). Also, do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.
In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance We recommend Food 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.
Hope it works better for ya,

Do you like Christian evangelism and usin' some sorta new social media in this postin', tweeting, and updating kind of culture?
You already well-know what social media is basically about? It's kinda like a microphone that could reach far.. social media is.
Of course we believers never want to be pushy, intrusive, unclear, or produce spam and cyber-noise that annoys people, but social media is hooked-up in such a way so that gobs of folks out there.. who are lonely, empty, guilty, afraid to die and are just listenin'.. can dialogue with you and me for the sake of the Gospel.
As believers we are called to communicate with them (not at them) and give them an opportunity to turn and trust Jesus online. They're hungry and many are open to receive. So in Christ's love let's grab the net, some righteous bait, a hook so to speak and go deliver God's Message!
The Bible says, “Jesus called out to them, ‘Come, be my disciples, and I will show you how to fish for people!’” (Matthew 4:19).
Maybe kind of like that seasoned fisher of old, the apostle Peter, you have been feeling worthless, or like a failure, or insignificant at times.
Well I’m here to remind you, believer, that you have talents to use as bait and you can be a vital part of God's fishing plan! Jesus Christ is there for you, to encourage you to grab a pole, a net, some effective worms so to speak. yup, kind of like how He did with Simon when He said, “Don't be afraid! From now on you'll be fishing for people!" (Luke 5:10). Like at facebook.com/shareJesus

"We have a strange illusion that mere time cancels sin. But mere time does nothing either to the fact or to the guilt of a sin." -- C.S. Lewis
This isn't a very popular topic, but me tends to think that anyone can turn around, if they'd just turn around. It's sure make God happy if and when there's a need for turning. Sure, He (Jesus) said, "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3
Guess we should respectfully respond to em with: Nothing nowhere created everything everywhere from nothing nowhere.
You know, them not believing doesn't make the God who created them and everything.. go away. It also sadly doesn't make their sin-habits and the consequence go away. I feel like I can relate to these friends... do understand em some cuz I was once one of em. Yes, the mocker (me) has become the mockee. : )
I'd say that Mr. Lu-Cifer and his gang of fallen-angel-minions must have been fairly clever to go deceive so many people here, and subsequently putting so many counterfeit believers around us (real haters wearing Christ's name, committed to Westboro Baptist "church-going," (yeah, some look all pious on the outside, but are lost as lizards if ya will on the inside - dead inside), you know, and traditional religious church-goers (merely nominal Christians), and Mormons, and Jehovah Witnesses, those who call themselves "spiritual" but twist or reject the Scriptures and the Bible Jesus, etc).
That kinda makes it hard to distinguish who the real believers with God's real Gospel Message are huh. Listen, please don't become all anti-God and Bible just cuz some people refuse to stop and look at the facts, or because gobs of poorly taught.. or refuse-to-believe-and-practice what the Bible actually teaches ..kind of mean religious mobs are on the increase out there.
The study of hermeneutics shows us there is only one way to properly interpret any literature, so biblical hermeneutics in this illiterate culture is what's needed more than ever before. I remember as a kid growin' up in Southern California how I used to receive the many different types of tracts from people in cults, or from those in Islam, and I'd also look around at all the whacko-dead-money-hungry-religious-church-folk too.. the so called Christians as they'd say.. and I'd get kinda confused about Christianity.
But today there seems to be even more of em out there...cuz where in the last of the last days I think. Ever seen those full-on haters out picketing at the funerals of our fallen vets? Such sin! So wrong! God hurts and weeps with those weeping, but not them. The religious leaders of
Does genuine love for God and people mark you life personally? Just remember if you come across a counterfeit bill, that only means there's a genuine bill somewhere out there. Recall what Jesus said about recognizing them by their fruit. The Bible says, “..the fruit of the Spirit is L O V E, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” Gal. 5:22-23 nkjv emph mine.
He warned us of fake saints, poser-disciples, and those false teachers saying, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” Matt. 7:13-23
Choose to be and live real in the Lord 24/7/365. Living confused or deceived while deceiving others - that's just waste of time. It's a waste of your life and a waste of others lives as well. May I ask... are you an Atheist with some honest questions? Read...
Sometimes the very best day is actually a night. Yeah, and the best night is indeed a night.. if you start to walk in the light.

The first two letters of "gospel" are: GO. Sure, why not, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." Mark 16:15

Don't blame the wrong person. Stuborn, partially or falsely-informed, misguided, and shortsighted people send themselves there. Only two options and God won't make anyone come be blessed with Him in Heaven.
Depravity (not a nice sounding word..), the need for turnin' and invitin' Christ inside.. those start real early with a child.

Father, two requests.. 1) When we know it's of You, help us never hesitate to closely follow where our good Shepherd is leading. And 2) Please give discernment too.. okay. Yes, so that we'll know when it's of You or not of You. Sincere thanks!

I love the word impossible. You and your God-given dream are possible! In the past have you personally seen what's impossible suddenly become possible? Many have. I hear that nothin' is impossible if you're called to do it. Believe that! So, what are you called to be and do?
If you are a believer, then you are called to be faithful and fruitful. You and I are called to shine our light, to serve and to represent the Lord in every place that He leads us. Sure, He wants to bless you and has others in mind as well.
Impossible? The word itself says, "I'm possible!" "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible." 19.26mat facebook.com/shareJesus

But God encourages, He tenderly brushes em off if they've scraped their knee. He lifts. He protects. He fills em, and He restores people to what they were meant to be.
He gives, "them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting" (Isaiah 61:3). That's just the kind of Person He is and that's the kind of person we all need to hang tight with...rather than the other kind.

"Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." Mark 16:15
1) What is your reason for telling me this?
2) Where did you get your information ..who is your source?
3) Have you gone directly to the one involved?
4) Have you personally gone to check out all the facts? (You know the saying: Figures don't lie, but liars sure can figure}.
5) Thanks for telling me this—can I quote ya on this? (It's often interesting to see their facial expression upon hearing you ask this)
"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor." Exod. 20:16
"Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another." ~ Paul, Eph. 4:25
