God choses

Good morning,
so today as im embarking on judges i came across a passage
judges 1:2 it stood out to ne the nore times i readed it,
that when were confused , lost, dont know what to do , who to look to for guidence,
God does!  he always has us a plan
and already chose the right person, people to lead us to guide us through our journey accourding to his plan and purpose .
Aint that awesome God our father always has us watching us , leading us, But the the key is being willing to his will no matter what ,
so today i pray for as all to be willing for our spiritual eyes and hearts open to see who God chose to lead us along our journey for his plan

James study

Good morning .
So as my study of the book of James came to an end , and I sat and just reflectireflecting on the study going over the soak method in the study journal ,
I am thankful for James and the wisdom and help he has told us about with the holy spirit leading his words and messages to us,
I come see the purpose in James,
To examine ourselves for evidence of faith , To be doers or the word not hearers only.
It sure doesn't come easy , But the more time we spend with Jesus in his word it changes us!
Then it comes natural
When we draw near to God he draws near to us,
Isn't that amazing !!

Teachings in James
Our faith without actions is dead.
Taming the tounge.
Our faith tested.
Warning to the rich.
Hearing and doing.
Prayer of faith.

Key verse James 1:22
"Be doers of the word, and not hearers only "

I wanted to share a few points in James such a amazing book , study and soaking it in , thank you Jesus!
God bless friends

First things First .. Pray!

Good morning friends .
Today was I was reading my devotional this really hit home
Basied from acts 1:12-26
After Jesus descended to heaven the apostles returned to Jerusalem went upstairs and peter addressed them talking about the scriptures being fulfilled about Judas betraying Jesus
And they needed a replacement
They had a decision to make  between Joseph called barsabbas or Matthias ,
What did they do next? PRAY!!!
They prayed to Jesus  for direction guidance on choosing the one that Jesus has chose.

Were all faced with decions daily some small some big but do we always pray 1st ? I'll be honest not always right ,
My question is how much time do you do I spend in a difficult  situation?

As they waited and prayed  (key) after Jesus said they will be baptized with the holy spirit .

When were faced with difficult task , important decisions, dilemma's, Don't rush hoping all will be well
Instead first step should be pray for the holy spirits power and guidance.

Thank you Jesus for the holy spirit our helper our teacher.
Lead us guide us direct us Jesus!

Stay blessed
Xoxo Shantel.

The Best of the Bible

Good morning friends this morning as I'm reading through this book The Best of the Bible each day it has a must-read Bible passage so this morning on September 30th the entry was Luke 24 13 through 34 on the road to the emmaus.
This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible which I forgot about and I'm really glad that it was in here how Jesus appeared to them without them recognizing him he was talking and teaching them under seven mile journey to a message from Jerusalem they were talking about what had happened about Jesus the crucifixion and the resurrection what got me today and I wanted to share with you guys on the bottom of these daily readings it gives you a question and today's was would you recognize Jesus if you saw him today? The two disciples missed Jesus because they were too focused on their disappointment in addition they were walking in the wrong direction away from The Fellowship of Believers when we become preoccupied with our dashed hopes and flushed rated plans and when we withdraw from the strength found in other believers we are likely to miss Jesus and the power and help he can bring!

As I read this this morning it really hit home and where I'm at in life at the moment and it's so true when we get so focused on disappointments in life and too busy focusing on just the busyness of life and situations and not connecting with the body of Christ Ecc 4:9-10
all just really hit home our hopes are our plans we get too focused on what's to come in and not focus on the main thing which is Jesus
I myself need to be reminded of that that he's the main focus we need to draw close to him not pull away he is our strength or joy and direction  Jesus is our guide !!
A little encourageing today from my table to yours

Stay blessed  friends
