When We Mess Up........New Mercies

There are times we absolutely mess up in the Lord. When we do, we just get up, brush ourself off, & simply ask the Lord to forgive us & keep going! We never give up no matter what! To quit is exactly what the enemy wants. But, we are made of GOOD stuff! We continue to move on as human as we all may be! We must always be careful NOT to let the enemy OR our flesh influence our persona.
Let's keep the Lord of glory evident in our lives at all times.....
That is a great feeling to know without a doubt that we can still go to Him and His mercies are new every morning.

Are We Walking as We Say We Are?

We should display the Lord in what we say or do. The word says we are "in the world but not OF the world". We should not let our good be evil spoken of.....That's not saying that we are perfect & can't have a good time but when it looks or suggest that we are more of the worldly things, then how can the lost see the difference? People are watching to see if we are in the faith.
We must guard ourselves to ensure that we are not sending the wrong message relative to our profession as Christians. Paul inferred that he must practice what he preached so that he did not become a castaway.

Lord, help us today to try to walk in Your example so that the world may look at us and see a difference and ask us about the joy of our salvation.

The Rock

When you have hit ROCK BOTTOM in life, that means that there is nothing else left but ROCK.....At that point, you are exactly where you need to be. Will you stand on it or get up and leave it to find a more grassy and comfortable place?
