Potatoes and Gravy!

The bible talks about the sincere “Milk of the Word” that as for those not ready for meat. What does that mean? Some concepts in the bible are hard for people to swallow (or even chew). It doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you, You just aren’t ready for it yet.

My daughter started wanting more than milk, so I gave her rice cereal, and soon that wasn’t keeping her full, so I gave her potatoes and gravy. I only gave her a few bites to make sure it wouldn’t make her sick, but then when I saw she ate it and was happy (and slept good) It was added to her menu!

One day when she got older, she started really liking steak! the word of God is food to our souls (God said so) and was never meant to be a thing we use to “Lord over others.”

It’s my aim (and goal) to write messages and books that are food to the soul! For some this is hard to grasp, they want power scriptures or magic wands. I tried to get around growing and curtail God’s plan for me at one time, it didn’t go too well! In My daily life, I was always aware of my “need to Grow’ and be able to handle EVERY aspect of life with his help!

The only way this can really happen is if we grow in Grace and the knowledge of him (In every area) otherwise we end up “spiritually dysfunctional” and it’s not Gods’ best for us!

Others can see it, and don’t want to tell us. We know it and often don’t wish to deal with it becasue we think we are grown ups now. This link takes you to my book it’s a rock bottom price so you can afford it. I make about .40 a copy. 

Love you all! Laura Grace, Author Grace to grow And this text is revised and contains a study guide. 

You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. Hebrews 5:12

Let’s Talk about Injustice ……..

InJustice! Let’s talk about this for a minute……by Laura Grace

It happens all the time! In big ways, in small ways, and even in life-threatening ways. I just talked to a friend having a terrible injustice issue, and I know some more as well, right now who are battliing horrible injustice issues. Not fair, they didn’t deserve this, and I’m sorry, but just saying “love your Judas” doesn’t help them recover, nor pick of the pieces of “INJUSTICE”

I”m dealing with some right now in my own life, some of it has cost us thousands of dollars and the people who do this just “go on their merry way” Why do we love superhero’s so much? Why are we drawn to those movies? I say mostly, we love Justice!

Did you know in my 33 years of serving God, when I asked people why they are hesitant to serve him, they begin to talk about injustice! Horrible things that happend and “Where was God?” Is what they say to me and “Why did he let this happen?”

And another one “Why do they get away with it?” God’s justice for you is YOU get to be okay! HE will take care of you! HE will hear your prayers when you forgive and I just said this the other day as I was struggling to forgive another injustice…..

Lord my unforgiveness changes NOTHING but I do know if I forgive it wil clear MY soul of anger so I can hear from you! Not only that it opens the door for you to save them…….”

We all want to see our enemies defeated, but I wil tell you something……#1 THEY WILL BE and #2 YOU may have to change (and let it go) before it ever happens. Joseph’s brothers threw him in a pit because they were Jealous……

Abel was killed for his walk with God (Jealousy again) And his blood cried out from the ground! Joseph was put in charge of all the goods to feed people and said “What you meant for evil God turned it for my good” and he forgave and fed them “revealing God’s GLORY!!” ……

Our superhero’s are nothing compared to God and his power. Super hero’s save lives GOD SAVES SOULS for all eternity! What if your forgiveness and mercy to pray for your enemy saved their soul? IS it worth it! I would say yes, it is…….

So Father, we have not resisted to the point of shedding our blood and I pray mercy on my enemies right now and those who have wronged me! Because I know Father you saw it all and YOU WILL bring Justice, whatever that means or whatever it looks like to you! If It means their soul is saved, I say HALLELUIAH! and amen.

PS “vengeance is mine I will repay” says the Lord! He may repay by blessing you so much they just say wow why was I not able to destroy them? 

Upset about injustice? Me too sometimes!

avoiding strife!

There are people who love to argue…..but the bible says:


“But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife” (2 Timothy 2:23).

strife: vigorous or bitter conflict, discord, or antagonism: to be at strife. a quarrel, struggle, or clash.”

Proverbs 6:16-19 King James Version (KJV) says this:


“16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
So if we want to be Holy, we need to pray and concern ourselves with where our heart is.

Do we love strife? Sowing Discord? If so, it’s really not God’s way. We think it’s fun (at times) it reminds us of those playground confrontations when everyone stands around saying “Fight Fight Fight.”

Strife is a thing of the flesh, it’s normal to want to argue when we are passionate about something, but the truth is, it never leads to inspired revelation and truth.

God’s way is to speak to us in the Secret place, (away from clamoring and strife!). The wisdom from above is gentle, peaceable, full of Mercy and Good fruit!. If we remember this, we walk in Gods ways. If we walk in his ways (and not our own) we are becoming “like him.” This is God’s #1 dream for us, “Being Transformed” “Becoming like him!”. It’s part of the Salvation process! God never intended to leave us the way we are.

Laura Grace, Author, Grace to Grow, Dysfunctional People ABC’s of Christianity, And more!


Let’s pray;


“Father forgive us for the times we argue, strive, sow discord, and do not reflect YOU! “Have mercy on us Father, help us to listen to you!! We humble ourselves and admit, in many ways we have failed to hit the mark.
Please help us to grow in Grace and the knowledge of you Father! Forgive us for thinking we’ve arrived or that we are better than others. In Jesus’ name we pray. amen”

God’s Trees………..

Gods’ Trees:

“Grow in Grace” is no understatement. It means we continue to be like a tree, (Planted by the living waters) Growing fruit in our lives as a living being IN HIM. No tree ever grew better from having a list of rules read to it, or being read the riot act.

God plants (his word in you) and he will surely water it and cause it to grow. Our job is surrender, Trusting Him, Believing in Him (for all things) And even Self-Control is a fruit of the Spirit, and not a work of the flesh. (See Galations). 

Think about that for a moment! “Hello there, righteous little tree!

God loves you, SO MUCH!”

2 Peter 3:18 “but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity.” Amen.

A Prayer To End Corona virus

 

I was thinking about Abraham this week, He asked God to save Sodom and Gommorah if there were just 10 righteous People. God said Yes but he could not find 10…….

I thought about God’s Mercy, and how even though we don’t deserve it, he does hear our prayers………

How he said if two or more will agree It shall be done!

So Many people out there have never seen a miracle………

Let’s just believe for one Okay?

That this Virus would be vanquished! ……..

and disappear as quickly as it came!


Let’s trust God that he is good and his mercy endures forever….(Psalm 107) 


and promise that if he will answer this prayer…..

we will give him the glory….


Father we believe that you are good! What ever we have ever blamed you for please forgive us! 


In our hearts we know you are good Father, that you are THERE and you really do CARE …
.

So we unite our voices right now in Prayer saying Father! Father we ask you “VANQUISH THIS VIRUS” 

We ask you to do it in such a way, everyone can see it was you Father! and have the option to give you the glory! (and praise) 


IN Jesus’ name…..the name above all names……amen

Have no Fear! Jesus is here…..

It’s so easy to say isn’t it? “Have no fear?

The truth is, our bodies (and minds) were made with this “fight or flee” response to danger, and we can’t even help it! Jesus knew that, so when he said not to fear, he was not getting on their cases in a condemning way. You have to see his heart behind this.

See, we sometimes view God’s words through the lense of our parents, and the impressions we got as a very small child. If there was shame or condemnation in our parent’s voices (as children) when we read “OH you of little Faith” spoken in our text of the bible, we may begin to feel like God is “mad at us’ for not having enough faith!

How often have you found yourself saying “I”m sorry Father for my lack of Faith,” or I’m sorry for not trusting in you?”

Where does this come from? It comes from the overwhelming FEELING he must be displeased with us!

Now, come on! Deep down, we know he is not that unfair or unjust, that he would chastize and berate us for not having Faith, when he knows we have not had experiences that have LED to having Faith in him! He, as a good Father and as a gentle loving Shepherd, understands that he needs to take us by the hand and LEAD US into life everlasting, WHILE we are still upon this earth, “Taking his Yoke” and learning of him!

What if you were Noah? (Just think with me for a moment) There is nobody else around but you and God? Could you believe to hear from him? Noah believed in the goodness of God (that’s why he found Grace!). So did Moses, So did King David, and this was all “before” Jesus came to earth to save us!

Now, that’s the kind of Faith God wants us to have my friends, Faith in his Goodness (and unfailing love). You are the desire of his heart and he doesn’t want to lose you! You are so precious to him! Ponder on that for a second……..

Try going to biblegateway.com and type in “the love of God” Or “Mercy” and see how many scriptures you come up with! Ponder that, and get back to me………

With love,

strive to enter in…………

“Strive to enter through the narrow gate”

“Strive and fight to enter in”

It’s easy to say “I won’t fear evil tidings, my heart is steadfast trusting the Lord'” HOWEVER when the odds begin to stack against us, when the bills pile on, when a lot of stuff seems to be going wrong THAT is when the rubber meets the road my friends!

A friend of mine sent a video this morning this gal just being so real saying she was stressed and afraid but she began to just declare psalm 121 “MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD” she said and made this decision “I will not fear I will trust GOD!” As she made her decision God began to establish her and let her know HELP WAS ON THE WAY!

This has happened to me so many times! The process however of going from Fear to Faith can be pretty turbulent business! so if anyone ever told you it’s EASY I am sorry about that!

Sometimes it’s a very violent and deliberate decision telling your flesh to shut up and maybe even screaming to the heavenliesl “FATHER I WILL TRUST YOU I want to trust you now “Help me do it” ……..Just sharing “it’s not always easy” but God has never failed me yet! And I don’t believe he ever will…..With Love, (and here is the scripture)

Luke 13:24 “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able” And why are they not able? Because they will not give up their own ways and do things God’s way!
