Word Treasures Tuesday

Words are powerful, words are soothing, words are God’s resource for us. God’s word is a light to our path and lamp to our feet. Words lead, guide, direct, and instruct. Words are treasures to be shared.

30 Days Of…Day 19 – “Blessing Blockers”

 

On Sunday, the guest minister’s topic was “Blessing Blockers.” The topic caught my attention immediately. It made me think, how many times have I blocked blessings that I could have had. How many times could things have gone better if only I had not blocked blessings because I was afraid to step out on faith, or because I refused to forgive. How many times have I built up a wall that kept me in, but also didn’t allow God or anyone else in. If we don’t want to lose our blessings we must let go of those things that block us from receiving God’s best.

Blessing Blockers

  1. Fear (fear of the unknown)
  2. Unbelief (not believing God’s Word)
  3. Un-forgiveness (when we don’t forgive others don’t expect God to forgive us)
  4. Bitterness
  5. Anger
  6. Coveting (to wrongfully want something belonging to another)
  7. Deceit
  8. Gossip

This only a short list of things that can block us from receiving God’s best. We must give  all our blessing blockers to God and let Him handle them. Don’t let them take over and cause us not to be victorious.

Ephesians 3:20 (Amplified)

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—”

 

30 Days Of…Day 15 – “Dreams”

 

Do you have dreams and aspirations? Do you ever think about changing who you are  or shall we say expanding your horizons? Maybe you’ve been a lawyer, or a nurse, or a truck driver all your life but that was not the thing that you really loved doing. Maybe this was not the fire that ignited your passion. Do you want to reinvent yourself? That’s what dreams are all about. We are all here for a short time on this earth and if we want to leave a part of ourselves here, now is the time make our dreams become reality.

Start working on your dream by making a list of the things that you love doing. It doesn’t matter what those things are. You may even think, “why should I do this, this is silly.”  Just remember nothing is ever silly, because nothing can be turned into something. Years ago I heard words to a song that said,  “little becomes much when you place in the master’s hand”. Place your dreams in God’s hands. Let Him help you take your dreams from ordinary to extraordinary.

 

Henry David Thoreau said, “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
