“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭147:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬ 

He is Jehovah Rapha-the Lord who heals you-and He longs to heal us of resentfulness, bitterness and pride if we will but trust Him and walk before Him in obedience. We tend to associate healing with the physical body. When someone asks you to pray for them, they usually ask for physical healing. Yes, God heals our bodies. He can heal miraculously through His Divine nature, or He can heal through doctors and modern medicine. God also bestows the gift of healing onto certain people, usually called faith healers. Healing can be in an instant, or over a period of time. One thing we can be certain of is that God in His wisdom and mercy performs His healing to perfection. God also heals our troubles. He wants us to take our problems to him, whether they be financial, emotional, or our relationships. God also heals our souls. We are not just flesh. We are made up of three parts. We have a mind, a body and a soul. God wants us to be whole, complete and unless each part of our being is not aligned properly, we cannot function properly. God wants us to have health, joy and peace.Psalms 30:2 “Oh Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”

Let’s allow Him to examine our hearts and heal us of the diseases that sin inflicts upon us today. 

 

No matter what, there is ALWAYS a reason to SMILE? #Smile

Always put a smile on your face because it’s a very powerful weapon. I’m not talking about a cheesy fake one. I’m talking about a genuine smile of happiness. Instead of putting on a frown when in hard times which will only make you feel worse, turn that frown upside down.

I guarantee you if you do this, you will feel so much better. Remember God is always faithful. He will hold you up. Rejoice because all things work together for good. Uplift your life and think about all the great things God has done for you. Here are reasons why you should always be thankful. 
Think about things that are honorable. Give God thanks and always smile, which shows strength. Bless someone’s life today by just giving them a smile and that alone can indeed uplift them.  
Here are 6 quick benefits of smiling 
Lowers blood pressure

Better mood, especially for bad days 

Relieves stress

Strengthens your immune system

Lesson pain

It is contagious

The bible reminds us is in Proverbs 15:30 “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.”
Job 9:27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint,I will change my expression, and smile,’
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Romans 5:3-4 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

Happy Blessed Monday Friends!
Let’s welcome it with a Smile😀

Nothing but THE Blood of Jesus…#PleadTheBloodOverYourLife

 “His blood will make our consciences pure from useless acts so we may serve the living God” (Hebrews 9:14 NCV). Not only does the blood of Christ redeem believers from sin and eternal punishment. This means that not only are we now free from having to offer sacrifices which are “useless” to obtain salvation, but we are free from having to rely on worthless and unproductive works of the flesh to please God. Because the blood of Christ has redeemed us, we are now new creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), and by His blood we are freed from sin to serve the living God, to glorify Him, and to enjoy Him forever. Thank you Lord Jesus for the blood!

#WhereWouldIBeWithoutTheBlood

God can work in us and through us. But He can’t work THROUGH us until His work has been done IN us. #blog

 I hear so often these words…”Man, I can’t wait until this is over”…when referring to a current trial or hardship. And YES, certainly that is a human emotion we all share. 

But for one moment…consider this. Where you are today, right this minute, has not taken God by surprise. If the steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord, then you are right where HE wants you to be…or right where your foolish choices have taken you. (Not pointing fingers at all, as I have made some Grade A #1 bad choices in my lifetime to be sure.)

But no matter where you are…enjoy the journey. God can work in us and through us. But He can’t work THROUGH us until His work has been done IN us. If we don’t have enough of Him IN us…what will we share?

Everyone is happy and wonderful, completely satisfied on dry land when you’re enjoying the gorgeous sunset over the crystal blue waters. It’s when you’re drowning and looking for a life raft that He wants to know…what are you going to do? Are you going to learn how to be a better swimmer? Teach others around you how to swim? Or are you going to keep floundering about in the choppy water until you are once again safely placed on dry land?

It is only when we are truly facing life’s greatest tragedies and deepest pain that we can see the most beautiful portrait of God reflected on our lives…the perfect picture of his love, mercy and grace. 

2 Corinthians 12:9-10, “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”  

“Waiting on Your Boaz”: Everything Wrong With How We Read Ruth

Welcome to Flore's Inspirational Corner:

MUST READ: it’s amazing how I read the book of Ruth Multiple times and watched movies about her story and couldn’t find where she waited for him like they most people claimed. Wow!

Originally posted on Maggie Felisberto's Blog:

For those of you who have been around here for a long time, you know that I have a strong affinity for a biblical hero named Ruth.  She’s one of two women to have an entire book of the (canonically accepted, sorry Judith!) Bible dedicated to her story.  She’s one of the very few women mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus, and she’s awesome.  She’s in fact, very very awesome.

So how come this is how we’re taught to read Ruth?:

Seriously, what the hell? Seriously, what the hell?

We should definitely be encouraging women to avoid partnering with neglectful or violent men, when they can be spotted (sometimes you just don’t know until it’s too late). We should moreso be encouraging men and women both to speak out against sexual violence, without constantly placing the blame collectively upon women’s shoulders, but I digress.  Having fallen victim to dangerous men in the past, sexual violence one…

 God’s approval is better than man’s applause. #Blog

 

 There is an old expression that states, “Don’t be so heavenly minded that you are of no earthly good.” Clever and catchy cliché, isn’t it? In fact, just this past week, as I was preparing to put on a movie with my girls, I heard a conversation between 2 Preachers Kids from a reality TV shows where one told the other that she has no earthly good because she is too committed to God and she shouldn’t declined an invite for a party over serving at a ministry her church. Hahah! This is so me tho!😊 

The only problem is that these words are unbiblical. The Bible says, “Set your mind on things above, not on the things that are on earth” (Col 3:2). Contrary to popular opinion, being heavenly minded always inspires us to be more earthly good. Thus, our goal as Christians must be to set our minds on things above and faithfully serve the Lord.

Paul thoughts us that God’s approval is better than man’s applause. In ‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭18‬ – “Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.” 

Paul also instructed us how to regard ourselves and others, do not judge God’s servants in ‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭4‬:‭5 – “Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.”

Prayer:

Dear Lord, Help me to continue to seek your approval, trust in you with all my heart and acknowledge you in everything that I do today. Create in me a clean heart. Shine your light bright into my heart. Show me your face oh God. Reveal yourself to me as I faithfully seek to please you in all that I today. In Jesus’ Name! 

Be encouraged and Happy Monday!
