Growing in Christ: Don`t waste your time



Matthew 6:27 (ERV)
27 You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.


Do you really want to know, how to live a peaceful, worry free life? Give it to God!

With six children and a husband, ( laughs) there is always something to worry about!

Worries about our family business, the kids' needs, or someone is sick ! I have learn over well wasted time, to not worry! It does no good, nor changes anything, but makes me physically sick, and miserable! Instead, I now lay every care at the feet of Jesus, and keep my eyes on Christ!

Note this verse..
Isaiah 26:3
God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you.


The bible tells is that perfect peace comes to those who "trust" in Christ! So how can you have peace in this life? Give everything over to Jesus in prayers! Worry will not change anything, but make you miserable! However, you serve a God that makes the impossible, Possible!

Heavenly Father I pray Your word over each person reading this post today! The word of God says in Philippians 4:6
"Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ([definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God."


Lord, as they place every care at Your feet, and pick up Your peace, thank you for guarding their hearts and minds! Thank you for drenching them in Your perfect peace! In Jesus name, I pray Amen!

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
