Keep Reading


When I received this email today I read the first line and thought, "I don't want to hear this". Then I heard it's exactly what you need to hear. Have you ever had that experience before? I knew I had to keep reading even if only because I wanted to stay in my mood. The last thing I need to do is hold on tighter to my funk than to my faith. Y'all pray for me.

Love y'all

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns -- February 26, 2010

Beloved, refuse to allow discontentment to encroach on your thoughts, for it most certainly has its roots in bitterness of soul and will make a place for the enemy to work against you. Contentment comes from a position of faith and trusting that I am for you and not against you; that I care for you. Take comfort in knowing that I am with you. Set your sights higher than the

temporary things of the earth. Look heavenly, and renew yourself in the hope of my promises, says the Lord.

2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

I have been guilty of the same...but it does us all well to take a moment...and let God back in. Good post!

This must have really touched you because unless I'am missing something, this post is only 1 of 16 that's you've written in the last 2 years.

So maybe it's appropriate as we leave Black History month. MLK spoke of having a "THOUGH" faith as opposed to an "IF" faith.
