Closure?


Why do I have a need to see you, to ensure
the end, of our relationship?
knowing you’re nothing but toxic for me, and
there’s no more bond, or kinship.
Why do I feel I have to let you know, we don’t
share any commonalities?
I tell myself that, I have to inform you, that
our life, had its share of calamities.
Hold up!! I realize for sure, I’ve closed
and locked that door.
I don’t have to prove to you, there’s no such

thing as us, anymore.
It came to a point, where your behavior held
its own light of exposure.
You see, I no longer want you. I chose to call
this thing, closure!!!

When You Fall, Get Up and Keep Going! 

 by Joyce Meyer  

The Bible says that the righteous man falls seven times and gets up again (see Proverbs 24:16). I love that scripture and I am greatly encouraged by it. Even the most righteous person fails to do everything he knows to do all the time, but he is committed to not giving up.

Even if you have a weak moment, that doesn’t mean you have lost your victory. If we give up, even God can’t help us because we receive His help through faith, not through hopelessness. We need to stay positive, hopeful and filled with faith, and when we do we can overcome anything with God’s help. I often say that anyone can succeed if they refuse to give up!

Some fears are more deeply rooted in us than other ones are, and for that reason they may be ones we will need to be more aggressive against. Mine is the fear of making people angry. My father was always angry, and I never really knew if I had done something to make him that way or not. I would like to be able to say that after all of these years of teaching others, I no longer have to deal with this one fear, but that’s not the case. However, the good news is now I recognize it and I deal with it, so I still have the victory.

Being able to recognize the lies, deceits and strategies of the devil is so important. We should always be ready to resist him at the onset of his attacks. The longer we let a fear remain, the more difficult it is to get rid of. So make a decision to be a person of action. You have what it takes to win!

He Reigns by Jessie Lofton

 

Glory to God and praise everyday.

We should be thankful for the love He gives and shows in each and every way.

The breath He gives, the life we live,

It’s all because of His grace.

For us to do right by Him and only Him is how we shall seek thy face.

The love that we have for our Father shall never be replaced.

He dares us to hear His voice, to follow His Word. To choose another path over His would be absurd.

I encourage you to hold to God’s unchanging hand.  Never question His work.

And every obstacle He takes you through is part of His master plan.

My heart smiles whenever I hear His name.

I love hearing the bells of Jesus and forever His name shall reign.

God is not through with me or you

This is the reason why we seek Him through….GIRDLE

Just give your life to Him

Trust and believe in Him

Amen. Thank you Jesus.
