Friendship

Good morning .. Today's devotion
Ecc 4:7-12 got me thinking and realizing the importance of friendships, fellowships, companionships in the Lord .

How valuable friendships , fellowships are
Were not meant to do it alone but hep encourage lift up one another in the Lord

Vs12 a cord of three strands is not quickly broken!
God centered friendships this is so awesome and important
Me , you, and Jesus the center of it ❤

Oberservations
*friendship is the one area that ecclesiastics never calls meaningless
* the value of friendship , companionship are the foucas of these verses
* the selfish individual works alone in completion with others
He misses the reward of companionship , friendships
*God himself realized from the beginning our need for fellowship , companionship with others.

So much value in connecting through Jesus that's why the devil trys to break up friendships separates the best of friends .
... Hmm then if some friendships were broken they didn't hold tight maybe
They weren't God centerd ....
Really makes me thinks
Different seasons do come !
According to Gods purpose.

Stay blessed  Live Loved

Do you listen well ?

Hey y'all
I've been wanting to do this series for a while it's for a husbands and wives But not only married couples but anyone as these issues will also be come with people in our lives at times  in different situations  just some Godly wisdom and advice through his scripture and thoughts on the subjects we come across
To help us and give us some Godly advice The Godly way to handle them as they arise
As I've been Reding and studying the love launges.

So todays topic
What's that you say?
Most of us share our ideas much too soon we talked before we have really listened according to one study the average person listens only 17 seconds before interrupting the speaker. The Book of Job gives many illustrations of poor listening. As joke suffered with illness grief and loss he maintained his good standing before God. But his friends brushed him off and instead that he must have committed some great sin for God to allow him to suffer so much finally after enduring many speeches job became Fed Up we can hear his frustration in
Job 31:35 if only someone would listen to me.
Good listeners will never share their ideas until they are sure that they understand what the other person is saying in marriage this is extremely important ask questions repeat what you think your spouse is saying and acts in my understanding you if your spouse says yes then and only then are you ready to move on you might say I really appreciate you being open with me now that I understand where you're coming from can I share with you what I was thinking your spouse will hear your perspective because you have first taking the time to really hear what he or she is saying.
So in these situations they come up I found it is best to take some time to pray as couples or individually as well to emphasize to the Lord you want to be a good and thoughtful listener axon to help you refrain from expressing your opinions too soon or too strongly rudely even asks him to give you ears to listen well not only speaking well.
A couple more scriptures to help us with further studying on listening are
Proverbs 15 :2 Ecclesiastes 5:2 and James 1:19

Knowing who he is more each day his characteristics more as he reveals whonhe is through his word .
I'm so greatful for this study and most importantly for my GOD ! My rock my foundation never changing always their when I call upon him!
Their is none like him

He's full of mercy, his greatness full of love, full of grace, compassion towards us , full of wisdom and power
Deserves our praises!
Our God is strong , enduring, trustworthy!

Third day and already so much I've never acknowledge before
About my God ,  i love the soap method of study its life changing!
Thank you Jesus for revealing your self to me .

So this study leads to thanksgiving morning , since this is the month for thankfulness
Anyine can join me. Just follow the deets on the photo and write down each day ,
This study isn't just for thanksgiving do it anytime , I know I will often to be reminded of the mighty God we serve!!

 Bible Study: Source of Gratitude
A 2-week Love God Greatly study...
When we think of thankfulness, we typically look to temporary things: our health, our family, the food on our table… all wonderful things to give thanks for! But the heart of gratitude should stem from a much deeper place…
The first week of this study takes a closer look at who God is and what He has done. This solid foundation will inspire you for the second week of study, when you’ll have the opportunity to examine what your response should be.

Seasons

So todays reflection on the words of Solomon in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Their is a time for everything different seasons of life

Solomon describes each season of life ,
He don't tell us how to handle each one

We can't control the timing of seasons But we can do is recognize the timing
And contuie to praise God through each one

Its our responsibility to notice Gods timing not change it

To accept and cooorate with Gods timing
Our alignment with Gods timing makes a great difference

God has put eternity in our hearts so we must trust Gods timing

We must live in harmony with the flow of life through each season as it comes and know it's Gods timing for it.

Stay blessed Live Loved
