Encouragement

1 Thessalonians 5

11 Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, just as you are in fact doing.

Sometimes we just need a little encouragement from one another. Just thought i would post a reminder to myself. I sometimes forget that we can help uplift each other.

  • In case you are in a slump, down, or just want to hear something positive, here are some words to help you make it through another day.
  • We all need a little push to help us brave the day. There are days that are better than others. On those other days where we struggle a bit, it is good to hear positive and uplifting words.
  • We are human. We make mistakes. We stumble. We sin. We get down.
  • Keep your eyes on God and Jesus and watch your day turn into a most beautiful experience.
  • Live life today with God holding your hand.
  • Breath in your surroundings and remember that every sense in us lives with him.
  • Don’t forget that Jesus is here, always, waiting on us.
  • When you see a rainbow, remember God’s covenant.
  • When you feel the breeze, that is God whispering loving words in your ear.

It helped me. I hope it helped you, too.

The Eyes: A Window to the Soul

window to the soul

Matthew 6:

 The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.

 

I have heard that the “eyes are the windows to our soul.” It is believed that when someone looks deep in our eyes they can see our soul. However, what is our soul?

The soul is the spirit or essence that is within each of us. Is that part of us that lives on beyond death. It carries all of our burdens, happy thoughts, despairs, accomplishments, and hopefully, all the beautiful memories that we made here on Earth.

Maybe, when someone looks into our eyes, they can see a part of our life that is already transcribed and imprinted within the soul. Of course, these are speculations on my behalf, but nevertheless provoking thoughts that could allow us to be happy about what we end up taking with us in our final day on Earth.

I looked into the eyes of the man I love, and I could see his kindness, love, gentleness, and believe it or not, I saw my home in his eyes. Not a physical home, but a home for my soul to rest along his, to hold hands with his, and to share new memories together.

I believe that his eyes foretold our love, our friendship, and our union. I love to look into his deep blue eyes. They have a calming effect during a stormy day, a relaxing look that lets my senses know that everything is alright.

How wonderful? How magnificent? To love and see love in the windows of my better-half’s eyes.

Maybe it is true love, maybe it is wishful thinking, but for know, I will take it for what it is.

Love In Our Hearts

Ever said aloud, “I hate ……” then felt guilty for even saying it. I have. Just saying the word fills me with guilt, shame, and remorse. How can I, blatantly, say that word, yet profess to love God? Exactly!!! Once we have the love of God in our hearts, it is hard to be mean, say hateful words, or be disgruntled. On the other hand, maybe, we can. However, with God’s love, guidance of the Holy Spirit, and a humble heart, the correction of our actions it is immediate.

God’s Love

God’s love resides in each of us who believe in him, who trust him, who seek him. Within us are his teachings that help us lead a better life and strive to be an example to others.

1 John 4

8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 Corinthians 16

14 Everything you do should be done in love.

Guidance of the Holy Spirit

As we go through life, the Holy Spirit guides us. It teaches us to love, to do right by others, and to follow God’s example.

2 Corinthians 6

6 by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by benevolence, by the Holy Spirit, by genuine

love

Galtatians 5

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also behave in accordance with the Spirit.

26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, being jealous of one another.

Humble Heart

As God’s love resides within us and his Holy Spirit guides us, our hearts become humble, tender, and loving. We allow it to love all that surround us. A humble heart cannot hate. It cannot, intentionally, hurt others. If we do, we are, immediately, reminded of what we have done. We do not feel pride by demeaning others, or stepping over them. On the contrary, we place ourselves at their mercy.

Psalm 25

9 May he show the humble what is right! May he teach the humble his way!

Ezekiel 11

19 I will give them one heart and I will put a new spirit within them; I will remove the hearts of stone from their bodies and I will give them tender hearts.
