Why I blog

laptop and coffee cupI am tempted to say that  I blog to share some things that I wish I had known a long time ago, but I am not a fan of the “woulda  coulda  shoulda’s “.  lol  And more importantly, I trust in the care and wisdom the Holy Spirit to guide me (us) in Christian maturity.

One of the reasons that I blog is to share some of my experiences to strengthen and encourage others on the Christian journey.  First and foremost,

God, Our Creator has a plan for every one of us.  (Jeremiah 29:11) God is theblueprint Master designer has given each of  unique personalities, talents, and dispositions for His specific purpose for our lives.

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.__Proverbs 19:21 NIV 

We have a real enemy whose standard operating procedure (SOP) is deception. Two of his  common strategies are discouragement and isolation.  One of his lies to us is the thought:  “ This is beyond redemption and you  are (I am) the only one ”

firey skullBe sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:_ 1 Peter 5:8KJV

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.__ John 8:44KJV

We will face test and trials.  God allows some things, painful things in our lives, but only to the extent that those things which have the potential to produce His desired results in our (my) life and character.  With God, no pain is wasted.  Jesus said:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.  In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.__ John 16:33KJV

 We are comforted to be comforters.  

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. __ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 KJV

We are called to renew our minds with the Word of God. 

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing mind keyof your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.__ Romans 12:2 KJV

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.__ Romans 8:29 KJV

Lastly, I blog because  God’s Word is powerful to change minds and open hearts !
