Embracing Our Stroms Will Give Us Light And Hope In Tunnel

Good morning my beautiful people! So right now I’m in the middle of a series at my church called the brave journey where Jesus calls us to be brave during the five week session. So far I’ve experienced him calling me to do help my friends during their rough patches of their lives that’s been a challenge cause I’m no motivation speaker or Dr Phil (lol) but I try to help them by giving out my love and postive thoughts just like Jesus does with us when go through turmoil in our life. I wouldn’t call that brave but to me it is just cause I’m like the worst at consoling people but I’ve prayed about it before going to that person and that really does help a lot!

Anyways back to the heading of this article my pastor Chuck Mingo preached such a beautiful sermon about Storms in our lives last week and just really hit home with me. He talked about how we should embrace our storms meaning walk over it cause it will only make us stronger. At first while I was sitting there I’m like what are you talking about Chuck?! But as the service went a long I get what he was saying and it all made sense from there!

God does not promise us an easy ride. As a matter of fact, He often uses difficulty and suffering to do his work in us. We will face storms. But we will not face them alone or powerless. As we keep moving in bravery, God offers us his presence, protection, provision or peace within the storms we face. Walk on, friends. Face that storm. Is it scary and uncomfortable? Heck yes it is! It’s hard because we are so afraid to get out of our confront level believe me I struggle with that but as I have learned so far in the brave journey and the advice that I have gotten from people I can say that I’m ready to conquer those fears and walk on it!

Here’s a prayer I came up with during my alone time with God on Monday morning……

“Jesus, thank you for coming to me in the midst of my storms and walking me through them. Right now I really need You in the storm of (name your storm). Please help me pass through it and share your power with me to get to the other side. Amen.”

And listen y’all I don’t have all the answers! I turn to Jesus for the answers. We all have stroms in our lives and we are going through it right now! Nobody lives a perfect life, let me repeat that NOBODY! Jesus gives us these patches because he wants us to be closer to him and trust HIM! Also have others in your life that will support you and help guide throughout it cause love and community is very important!

Talk to him and he will help you through it!

Peace & Love,

Jesse

It’s All Jesus!

imageGood Morning my beautiful people! So the big man upstairs has been so good lately and giving me opportunities to help spread  his good news to others.

So a friend I work with asked me to pray for her because she feels like she’s been distant with God and wants to be closer with him. When I got that text I first talked with Jesus first asking me how do I go about helping her with it and he just told me to do it out of love just like him. It gave me chills and I believe he’s calling me to check up on my friend periodically I know this will help her find her way back to God which I know she will and as well help with my faith and relationship with God and learn as well throughout it.

Yesterday at work somebody gave me such a nice compliment on how I was such a good guy that always smiles and such and that it brightens their day. That seriously made my day because it’s all because of Jesus! He’s the reason why smile because I’m blessed to be in the world he created for another day! Even through the struggles I go through in my life I continue to put a smile in my face everyday cause God is so good and it’s just amazing how he continues to provide for us in those rough patches.

Another friend of mine made a big decision on her major for school the other day and I told her I was so proud and that it was the right decision to switch it. She said she was so appreciative of me supporting her in it cause not a lot of people that she is close with don’t agree with it which I find really sad. I get why she was so happy that I was supportive of her. The way I see it if your happy with a choice that will better your life then that’s all it matters! You know Jesus is always going to be in support of you! That’s what really matters!

So the matter of this blog is that I’m no inspiration and etc I just want to live like Jesus to the best of my ability. And I’m ever so grateful and humbled but the compliments people have been giving me lately because I take no credit in it I thank my beautiful mom for raising me so good and for Jesus for creating the person that I am.

Peace & Love,

Jesse
