Temptation: The Many Enemies of Life

If you haven’t realized already temptation is one of the many struggles we humans have in life. Maybe in a child’s eyes an example of temptation could mean the child’s mom says they can’t have a cookie because dinner will be ready in an hour. Well the child sees the cookie sitting there on the counter and longs for it, knows he or she can’t have it but takes it anyway and then gets in trouble because he or she was disobedient to the parent. As an adult maybe you are watching what you eat and instead of the rice cake you were supposed to eat you eat a dozen doughnuts from Krispy Cremes. See we all, young and old, have things that hold us back and in this case it’s temptation. Battling temptation isn’t easy but in the Lord’s Prayer it says God lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever. If you give God glory and praise him and thank him for all the things he’s done and do right then He will supply your needs and then some. Have a good night kiddies! ✌🏽️

New Beginnings and New Purposes

Today’s Sunday, the start of a new week. Hmm when I was little I thought Monday was the day to kick off our week, guess not. Sunday, a new beginning. In my 13 year old life I’m starting a new beginning myself; I’m starting my second week of 8th grade, and to be honest it’s a little overwhelming and overbearing. Life isn’t what you thought it would be. People change, not only physically but mentally and spiritually. Life also changes, I thought I was going to be with my mentor for my last year of middle school but it never happened. God allows certain changes in your life to happen. Changes that you would have never even spoke into existence, but it’s all for a purpose. Like school, for instance, what’s your purpose? Your purpose is to succeed and graduate while learning information that you will need in life and then some. Let’s take it to a spiritual level: As children of God our purpose is to glorify God in everything that we do and draw others close to Him. As children of Satan their purpose is to live in darkness, acknowledge and practice evil principles, and do what the Devil tells him to. Now back to new beginnings, everything on earth must rise and fall in God’s own time. Our beginnings may not agree with our being but because believers believe in the Holy Spirit we know that we just have to trust God to help us through this change. Even if it’s an awesome new beginning, whether it be a job, an invite into a new social group, or whatever. Pray about it and ask for guidance. The thing about new beginnings and new purposes is that they both work together for one thing and that one thing is you! They work for you! If you’re in a transition and it seems really weird just seek God and he’ll help you. If you’re embarking on a new goal/purpose make sure it’s in alignment with your Christian life and with your family then if everything’s ok, go for it! Remember to also surround yourself with good people who love God, want to build you up, and tell you if you are doing something wrong. Thanks for your time! Sorry this is my first time and I’m sorta having a hard time getting my thoughts straight and together😂 I might post something later on tonight. But please follow and get the word out. Thanks!
