A Friendly Reminder:

Allow God To Use Your Weaknesses To Show His Strength

Last week in my Christian Women’s Group, during my live broadcast, we discussed several ways of being a confident woman of God. I wanted to touch on one topic from that discussion.

Being a confident woman of God is recognizing your weaknesses and allowing God to strengthen you.

I admit, that in my own experience my weaknesses are very frustrating at times. In my life journey and walk with God, I have come to realize that my weaknesses are just a reminder of how important it is to trust God and depend solely on Him. And understand while they are not pleasant I’m allowing His light to shine through the cracks.

The Bible tells us that “God’s grace is sufficient for you and His Strength is made perfect in weakness.”
Read – 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

If you have your Bible available, turn with me to 2 Corinthians- Chapter 12. Beginning with verse 7, The Apostle Paul is speaking about, ‘The Thorn in the flesh.’

I will be using my Expositor’s study Bible and have included the expository notes to give you a better understanding of each verse.

It reads as follows:

7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the Revelations (presents the reason for the thorn in the flesh), there was given to me a thorn in the flesh (I think it was all the difficulties of 2 Cor. 11:23-27), the messenger of Satan to buffet me (an angel of Satan), lest I should be exalted above measure. (This has the Apostle concluding this sentence as it began.)

8. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. (The Apostle knew it was the Lord allowing this, but He didn’t understand why.)

9. And He said unto me (the Lord responded, but did not agree), My Grace is sufficient for you (speaks of enabling Grace, which is really the Goodness of God carried out by the Holy Spirit): for My Strength is made perfect in weakness. (All Believers are weak, but the Lord tends to make us weaker, with the intention being that we then depend solely upon Him, thereby, obtaining His Strength.) Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities (because of the end result), that the Power of Christ may rest upon me. (If Paul needed so humbling and painful an experience of what the carnal nature is, it is evident that all Christians need it. Whatever weakens, belittles, and humiliates that proud and willful nature should be regarded by the Believer as most worthwhile.)

10. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, In persecutions, in distresses for Christ sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong (then the strength of Christ can be exhibited through me, but only when I know I am weak).
– ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:7-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

If being a broken vessel for Christ’s sake is what it takes for me to proclaim the truth of the gospel; while letting HIS light shine THROUGH the cracks…Then Yes! I want to be used as His broken vessel, and as a channel of living waters. For when I am weak, I am made strong through Christ who strengthens me.

Need I say more – I believe that explains it all!
God is so good! Thank you, Lord!

– Love, By Tina…💛

A PLACE IN THE COUNTRY

Artist: “A Country Gem” by Artist: Nicky Boehme

A place in the country…

Is where I want to return to be.

It feels just like home to me.

The grass between my toes

Brings back memories of not so long ago.

When life was a much simpler time

And a sense of wonder was all mine.

Through my childhood years and into my youth

It was here that I found my God and Truth.

Growing in Faith and in the knowledge of His Word

I learned to depend and trust solely on the Lord.

While walking through these fields that I have returned

I have never forgotten the lessons that I learned.

I can still feel the gentle breeze of His love upon my face

The trip back to the country was more than just a kind embrace.

God’s grace is still abundantly present in this place.

Love, By Tina… 🌻

A HEAVENLY REFLECTION

When she looks in the mirror
The reflection she sees
Is a little old lady
Who looks a bit like me.

Her hair is gray
Thinning and weak
And isn’t lustrous
Like it used to be.

Her eyes aren’t sparkling
With beautiful shades of blue,
She can hardly see out of them
Like she used to.

Her face reveals the toil,
Years of hard work and labor,
Her heart always found joy
In helping thy neighbor.

Though the journey has been hard,
Her old age she cannot hide.
God has always been faithful,
She’s thankful for all He provides.

She finds joy in the Lord,
His Word has been her guide,
While traveling the road of life,
In Him, she could always confide.

Her life has been a blessing,
She could never deny,
Amidst trials and struggles,
Her faith has never wavered,
In Him, she could always rely.

Sustained and strengthened,
By His Promises and Truth,
She finds Hope in Salvation,
In the One who’s love was proved.

The old lady in the mirror she sees,
Is not the afflicted she once believed,
Old age has been her privilege,
God has granted to her to receive.

And Someday very soon,
It won’t be too long,
God in all His glory,
Will be calling her home.

All the earthy burdens,
Along her life’s journey,
Will cease and no longer be
When she stands before Thee.

Her glorified body to receive,
A heavenly reflection she will see
When He takes her hand
and leads her into eternity.

Love By, Tina… ♥️

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Caspar David Friedrich, Cross in the Mountains

I am posting this because I felt in my spirit that someone out there is struggling with the Truth.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!

If you are putting your faith in anyone or anything other than Jesus Christ and Him crucified, (The Jesus of the Bible), you will not be saved!

Plain and simple!

Buddha, Confucius, Catholic rituals, etc. and all those types of false teachings CANNOT and WILL NOT save you!

Jesus Christ is The ONLY WAY, THE ONLY TRUTH and THE ONLY WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE!

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
John 14:6 KJV

The time is at hand and Jesus’ return is imminent! It’s time to wake up! Remove those scales and blinders from your eyes. Stop following false religions and teachers! Stop worshipping idols! If who or what your are following goes against the Word of God than its false!

Scripture tell us to:

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”
Matthew 7:15-17 KJV

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
1 John 4:1-3 KJV

“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
2 John 1:9-11 KJV

God forbid that anyone should perish lost from ignorance and lack of knowledge of the truth. Listen to wise counsel. Surround yourself with those who will instruct you in the Word of God. Open your heart and mind to the TRUTH!

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

He Is There

Artist: Daniel F. Gerhartz – Hope Arises

You cry out to Him from the deepest depths of your heart. In your despair you feel as though He is not there. The struggles and trails that you face, continue to endure. You don’t know how you will make it through. You ask God, Where are you? Are you there?

From the very creation of the world. He is there. Even before you were conceived. He is there. When the first uncertain breath of life is taken. He is there. He is with us when our mortal souls awaken. Close beside us in each moment we are given. There to light our way, and lead us home to heaven. He is there.

When your heart is breaking. He is there. With every tear that rolls down your face, He is there. Even if you don’t feel His presence. He is there. When the pain rocks you to the very core of your soul. He is there. He is there with love beyond our understanding, watching over us with a Father’s tender care with all His might and mercy never-ending. He is there.

When we’ve lost our way and wander in our blindness. Help unfailing, when no other help can find us in our despair. He is there. When our broken hearts reach out to Him for healing. There to lift us up and set our spirits singing. He is there.

Oh, the comfort in His promise of salvation. How we praise His name in songs of adoration and grateful prayer. He is there. There to share in all our joy and still our weeping ever constant, ever faithful, never ceasing. He is there.

He’s always been there.

The Lord is near to all who call;
He promised in His holy Word
That if we will draw near to Him,
Our faintest heart cry will be heard.

Psalms‬ ‭145:18‬ ‭
James‬ ‭4:8
