Growing in Christ: FIll your house up


Have you ever watch the show. "Extreme home make over"? Well, if not . The show is basically about homes, that are in dire need of a make over! Run down, broken homes, that need to be remodeled!

As Christians, our life was once like this! We were all dirty, filthy sinners in God's eyes; who needed an extreme make over! 

We needed a savior ! God seen that need, and met that need, by sending His son. Christ, then came to earth and gave each of us an opportunity to get an extreme spiritual make over. Jesus basically cleaned house!

Like the show "Extreme house make over". They never, ever, just came in and just clean up, without bringing in new furniture! People are never left with just an empty house at the end of the show. And neither left with a new home, with the same old dirty furniture inside! Everything in the house is brand new, and the home is left full of new furniture!

When we become a Christian, Christ cleans house! Jesus also leaves us with a ton of new furniture to put into our homes. Our furniture is found in The word of God, and we are sealed with Holy Spirit (bible). The bible has the capability of transforms our spiritual life. A spiritual life of filth, to a spiritual life of the richness of Christ! To an empty spirit, to a spirit filled up in His word ! 

Today, don't leave your house (spirit life) empty!! Fill your life up in the word of God! Unless, you allow satan to find your house empty, and take over! 

Note these verse...
Matthew 12:43-45(NKJV)

An Unclean Spirit Returns
43 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds itempty, swept, and put in order.45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”

Be transformed!

Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by therenewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Have a bless Thursday ! 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.
