Growing in Christ: My lips will not curse God, but trust!

Like in the book of Job, each of us have been through some tough trials in our life. From the death of love ones, sickness, miscarriages, loss of jobs, etc...

Job in the bible is seen, teaching us a lesson on how to make it through heartache , depression, pain, and suffering.... Job trust God, no matter what!

Job 1:9-12(NKJV)
9 So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!”

12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person.”

So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.

Though satan attacked job's children, his possessions, and Job's health. Job understood, one thing! That God is always more then able to restore....

Note this verse...
Job 2:9-139 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”

10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.

Job had faced, more then any of us could possibly endure in this life time! Some of His children have died, he loss all of what he had, and even his health was taken! However, He shows us how to get through it all. Job said, He trusted God! Hallelujah!!

Job goes on to say...
Job 13:15(NKJV)
15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.

Job knew that His lips would continue to praise God. Though he voiced his displeasure of his circumstances . Job never blamed God.

At the end of the story of Job. God is seen restoring everything that satan had stolen from him.

What are you going through today? What hurts and sorrows have your soul down cast? Give every pain over to Jesus, because he cares for you! Cry out to God, tell Him how you feel! Tell Jesus you need His help, and strength ! You need Him to restore! Christ wants to heal your broken heart and restore your life.

When I went through a tough time in my life! God gave me this verse to hold onto to which reads..

"Isaiah 66:9 (NCV) In the same way I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord.

God has allowed my life to be restored! Will you trust him to restore yours today?

Heavenly Father, Lord Your word declares that You are ... Psalm 3:3 But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.

Lord, though we may go through many trials in life. I thank You that You never leave us! I thank You that You are right by our side walking us through those rough times; according to Psalms 23. For Your word declares, that You are the Glory and the lifter of our head! You always restore! In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Good morning King Jesus! Good morning family and friends! 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…

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.

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…
