Growing in Christ: stiff neck

Exodus 32:9 And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people!

In life there will always be problems!
Always ups and downs! As Christians we all have seen the hands of God on our life! We have seen Christ, delivers us from every obstacle that has stood in our way!

However, how many times have you turn back to worrying, murmuring, and complaining about what lies ahead of you? How many times have you been stubborn, and choose not to look to Christ as your deliver, and run in the opposite direction?

 Is your neck stuck in a position looking at the problems; unwilling to recognize and see that God is still able to deliver? Are you so stubborn, in always do things your way and not God's way?

Don't become "stiff neck" ! Don't allow your focus be off of God, and stuck at looking at the issues of life! Don't live a life of doubt, unbelief, a life of lack of faith! Turn your neck in the direction of the One who moves mountains! Humble yourself, and turn to God! Christ is The One, who delivers time and time again!

Remember God's word says...
Psalm 34:19"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all."

Here is our prayer for today.,.

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus! Lord, Your word is life for me, a light unto my pathway, and a lamp unto my feet! Lord, help me to always keep my eyes on You and not my problems... For Your word declares that You are the Author and the Finisher of my Faith, according to ...

Hebrews 12:2 "looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

I thank You for helping my unbelief, that I may never sin against You. in Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Have a bless day , love Sis Rashida:)

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.
