Growing in Christ: Choices


The other day, my husband and I had reached a fork in the middle of the woods! We had to make a choice, on what direction to go . It's was either ..

A... Trust God to meet a need, that looked impossible!

B... Try to meet a need on our own, and not be completely honest to get it done !

As my husband and I discussed the situation. I just could not see myself choosing plan B! Being a Christian means all eyes are on our lifestyle , and that our faith walk in Christ is being seen! If we say we love God, we need to trust him no matter what! We are always to do Good, and not telling the truth, is never an option for me personally! 

I was reminded of the story of Abraham in the bible . How he lied and told pharaoh the half truth about his wife. Abraham told pharaoh that Sarai was his sister, and not the whole truth of her being his wife. Though his intentions were good! As Abraham wanted to protected himself from being harm! He could had just simply trusted God, to work the situation out!
Note these verses...

Genesis 12:11-13
11 And it came to pass, when he was close to entering Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, “Indeed I know that you are a woman of beautiful countenance. 12 Therefore it will happen, when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, ‘This is his wife’; and they will kill me, but they will let you live. 13 Please say you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that Imay live because of you.”

So here I was back at that heavy, forest fork, in the middle of the woods, as we continued to discuss, both options! At the end of the day, we chose option A! God's way! We both decided to trust God, and do good; even if it meant that we would take another long path to get were we needed to be!

I am so thankful for God who is always working on my heart daily! I may not be perfect, but I strive for His perfection, found only with walking with Christ daily!

Matthew 5:48
Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Goooood morning King Jesus! Goooood morning  family and friends! Have a bless weekend 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.
