Don’t Despair, #Sunday is Coming!

Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him… Job 13:15 KJV

Americans are truly blessed. Individuals yearn to step forth on our soil and some try to do so by whatever means necessary. The flip side of living in the U.S. is that we complain and think that we shouldn’t experience any heartache, depression, or sorrow. We have doctors that give us pills, lawyers that keep us from going to prison, and anointed ones that tell us that we deserve to prosper. After all, we are told that we are living in the land of milk and honey.

Although I believe Christians should prosper and be in good health, the word says that there is a condition that must be met to qualify for the abundant life. Unfortunately, many believers skip over the necessary qualifications to inherit God’s blessings. We have, and I’m guilty of this myself, itching ears. We don’t want to endure sound doctrine. We want the blessings, without the trial of our faith. Sometimes, for whatever reason, we must experience pain and heartache. It rains on the just and on the unjust.

Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus, who knew no sin, paid the ultimate price and committed his life to God as a ransom for our souls. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin. Jesus stood in the gap and ransomed his soul. Through this act of redemption, He freed us from the power and penalty of sin so that we might have eternal life with Him. We qualify by simply asking for forgiveness and He promises to give us the abundant life by obeying his word. I dare you to try him!

  2. Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking the
    time and actual effort to produce a very good article… but what can I say…
    I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get anything
    done.

    1. Girl, to God, be the glory. I ask God to write through me, to get me past the procrastination. Try it, He won’t let you down. Be prepared though, sometimes He may wake you up early and give you inspiring thoughts to write. The Word says we have not, because we ask not. You can do it, Girl. Someone needs to hear what you have to say. God’s favor and blessings on you always my sister.

  3. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    1. Hi Girl,
      That’s a tough question about programming which I’m not knowledgeable enough to answer. Try googling:
      What is the difference between PHP and .Net? Good luck!
