Y Moments

by Ann V. Friend


Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing.
Oscar Wilde

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

Welcome to Day 29 of the A to Z Challenge.

Continuing the blessing of positivity, with encouraging thoughts, to be content, in whatsoever state…..

Y moments can be a positive or negative experience. Depending on perspective and understanding wisdom.

Remembering the faithfulness of God and Romans 8:28, going through Y moments, is a lifeline to faith and hope in Jesus.

The ability to endure Y moments, in whatsoever state, is another example of the many blessings of positivity.

Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!

The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Philippians 4:7 – Heart

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
John 15:5

Sharing my thoughts……

A heart that knows the peace of God is a beautiful thing to experience everyday.

The peace of God keeps our hearts and mind through Christ Jesus.
What a blessing.

We’re branches connected to the vine and there’s fruit! Praise The Lord.

Scripture references to verse:

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 26:3

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.:
John 14:27

A Prayer To Face Down Giants

16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Sharing my thoughts…..

Praying brings comfort through the ebbs and flows.

Rejoice. Give thanks. Have faith. It’s temporary.

Praying, with specificity, has a distinction.

Rejoice. Give thanks. Have faith. Victory comes.

Scripture references to verses:

Verse 16

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
Philippians 4:4

Verse 17

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Luke 18:1

Pray with faith and trust in God.

Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!

The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Proverbs 3:25-26 – Wisdom Is Valuable Pt 11

38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

Sharing my thoughts…. by Ann V. Friend

The repetition of how God’s Word ties wisdom to life moments is comforting.

Wisdom is valuable when we know fear does not come from God. Notice the highlighted words below.

Fear not because I am with thee. I am thy God. I will strengthen thee. I will help thee. I will uphold thee. Powerful to know by experience.

Proverbs 3:7-8 – Wisdom Is Valuable Pt 3

Sharing my thoughts….. by Ann V. Friend

Spiritual things are foolishness to someone who knows him not.

Be not wise in thine own eyes, brought to mind the wise in this world scriptures below.

To fear the Lord is reverence and respect. It’s being honest with him since he knows our thoughts anyway.

Growing spiritually is a life long process.

The value of wisdom is a solid foundation of applying the Word to everyday choices.

Scripture references to verse:

Verse 7

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Job 1:1

And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Job 28:28

Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
Proverbs 4:21

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Proverbs 8:13

By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
Proverbs 16:6

Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!

The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Love One Another

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. ~ 1 John 4:11-12 ~

The ability to love others, in a less than kind environment, is a choice.

To love imperfections, in others, is to love as God loves our imperfections.

These are just my thoughts and something to ponder….

Abundant blessings, everyone, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Always Pray

by

Thank you for your prayers. Let us keep our faith and trust in God during the misdirection of information, building of angst and testing of our faith.

Originally posted on Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013:

Another prayer to use as we grow to love like Jesus does. Let us remember growth is a life long process. Sometimes we stumble and are not loving, yet God continues to love us anyway. Maybe, when we can all love as Jesus loves….oh, the possibilities!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NKJV) – Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails.

God bless you!
