Jewel Of Inspiration: Coffee & Christ

Who else needs more of both of these today?
Has disappointment, disillusionment, 
perfectionism, fear and failure 
invaded your day, week, year?

Let us not be pulled down by lies or fear in the hard steps ahead but instead be strengthened in the Light and Understanding of what we know to be
Truth, Love and Strength.
It is a Love that shines a light in the midst of darkness.

It is a Peace and Strength beyond our understanding.

It is Christ and His Word.

Be strengthened and encouraged with the Word of God, another cup of your
favorite java and the prayer declarations I wrote below.
Pray them for yourself and others.

The Joy Of The Lord Is Your Strength.
Nehemiah 8:10

Many are asking, “Who can show us any good?” Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD. You have filled my heart with greater joy than when
their grain and new wine abound.
Psalm 4:6-7 NIV

JOY to your world as you seek and receive the Goodness and Grace of God in your life!
JOY in understanding and knowing He is the source of your Salvation and Strength!
Holy JOY be wisdom and warning as you step out in obedience!
JOY to protect and prepare you along the way!
JOYful praises arise from your mouth and overflow to encourage others!

Understand The Word.
Obey The Word.
Rejoice In The Word.
Share The Word.

God's Word must be understood before it can enter the heart and release it's life changing power. 
~ Warren Wiersbe, Author - Be Determined

The joy of the Lord is your strength and the person of Christ is your unassailable joy – and the battle for joy is nothing less than fighting the good fight of faith. 
~ Ann Voskamp,

It is my prayer that you know this Joy, Love, and Peace - that has the power to go beyond anything we can experience from material prosperity, security or satisfaction.

Be Inspired,

Jewel Of Inspiration: Love And Consolation

Love and Consolation are powerful blessings.
On normal days we all want to know we are loved.
On days of struggle, disappointment, suffering, or grief we especially desire Love and Consolation to come near.
Consolation doesn't necessarily take the pain away but it lets others know you care, you are there and they are not alone.
There is always someone in need and there are many around us right now that may need a smile, hug, pat on the back or an invitation to come join you for lunch, church or something else. Genuine Love and Encouragement has the power to bring comfort & peace to an aching heart and troubled mind.
God the Father is the originator and author of comfort.
It is He who eases our pains and sorrows.
Christ is our intercessor, and advocate in our time of need and the Holy Spirit has been sent to be our Comforter.
The Church (Believers) are the physical comforters that God uses here on earth in a variety of ways.
It is important we not hesitate to be there for someone - offering prayer, comfort and assistance - this will powerfully and beautifully grow us in unity and love and bring glory to God!
He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds.
Psalm 147:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Romans 12:15
Here is what my pastor and friend spoke recently regarding devastating times -
"Few people remember what was actually said in time of devastation - but they remember who was there.  Be the friend that you would want in the midst of devastation."
Chris Emmitt, Pastor Community Bible Church
Love and Consolation are powerfully worth more than the expense it takes to offer it.
Ask me how I know...

Be Inspired,
