“Honor the Lord with your body” (I Corinthians 6:20).
The Scripture says that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. We are commanded to honor the Lord with our bodies. How do you do that? You take care of it. You respect it. You treat it as valuable. You use your body to bring Him glory. When you stand strong against temptation, you are honoring the Lord with your body.
When you take care of yourself by eating properly and getting enough sleep, you are honoring the Lord with your body. You are saying, “Lord, thank You for this gift of life. I am choosing to take care of myself so that I can serve You with my whole heart, mind, and strength.” Remember to honor the Lord by taking care of your body.
Enjoy the treasures of the season, but don’t allow the hustle and bustle of the season to rob you from simply enjoying the blessing of your friends, family, and loved ones. As you honor the Lord with your body, you will be strengthened and empowered by His peace. You’ll be able to stand against temptation and walk in love all the days of your life!
GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES!!!!!
Once upon a time there was this
girl who had four boyfriends.
She loved the 4th boyfriend the
most & adorned him with rich
robes & treated him to the finest
of delicacies. She gave him nothing
but the best.
She also loved the 3rd boyfriend very
much & was always showing him off
to neighboring kingdoms. However,
she feared that one day he would leave
her for another.
She also loved her 2nd boyfriend. He
was her confidant & was always kind, considerate & patient with her. When-
ever this girl faced a problem, she could confide in him, & he would help her get through the difficult times.
The girl's 1st boyfriend was a very loyal partner & had made great contributions
in maintaining her wealth & kingdom. However, she did not love the first
boyfriend. Although he loved her deeply,
she hardly took notice of him!
One day, the girl fell ill & she knew her
time was short. She thought of her
luxurious life & wondered, I now have
four boyfriends with me, but when I die,
I'll be all alone.'
Thus, she asked the 4th boyfriend, 'I
loved you the most, endowed you with
the finest clothing & showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you
follow me & keep me company?'
'No way!' replied the 4th boyfriend, & he walked away without another word.
His answer cut like a sharp knife
right into her heart.
The sad girl then asked the 3rd boyfriend,
'I loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me & keep me company?'
'No!', replied the 3rd boyfriend. 'Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to marry someone else!'
Her heart sank & turned cold.
She then asked the 2nd boyfriend, 'I
have always turned to you for help &
you've always been there for me. When
I die, will you follow me and keep me company?'
'I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!', replied the 2nd boyfriend. 'At the very
most, I can only walk with you to your
His answer struck her like a bolt of
lightning, & the girl was devastated.
Then a voice called out: 'I'll go with you.
I'll follow you no matter where you go.'
The girl looked up, & there was her first boyfriend. He was very skinny as he suffered from malnutrition & neglect.
Greatly grieved, the girl said, 'I should
have taken much better care of you
when I had the chance!'
In truth, you have 4 boyfriends
in your lives:
Your 4th boyfriend is your body. No matter how much time and effort you lavish in making it look good, it will leave you when you die.
Your 3rd boyfriend is your possessions, status and wealth. When you die, it will
all go to others.
Your 2nd boyfriend is your family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for you, the furthest they can stay by you is up to the grave.
And your 1st boyfriend is your Soul. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.
However, your Soul is the only thing that
will follow you where ever you go.
Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now,
for it is the only part of you that will follow you to the throne of God & continue with
you throughout Eternity.
Thought for the day:
Remember, when the world pushes
you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray.
Thanks for brightening up my page,i see that you are one who seeks to encourage the saints of GOD to keep the faith,so likewise i pray you will be open to hear what the spirit is calling you to do, that you will remain in GOD`s will.
Blessed Love Sis ALICE
Hello Sister...how are you? I appreciate the extra special things you do for fellow members. I just listened to the first song Now Behold the Lamb on your music player and was blessed. The Lord bless you.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most
High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and
my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
( Psalms 91:1-2 * NIV )
God has promised us; As a mother comforts her
child, so will I comfort you. ( Isaiah 66:13 )
Therefore never doubt, instead put all of your trust in Him.
The following poem sums it up best. I hope that you will
** I know He is the beginning, so why do I worry about the end?
** I know He is the creator, so why do I wonder who will destroy?
** I know He has forgiven me, so why can't I forgive myself?
** I know He is a healer, so why do I speak of sickness?
** I know He can do all things, so why do I say I can't?
** I know He will protect me, so why do I fear?
** I know He will supply all my needs, so why can't I wait?
** I know He is my strength and my salvation, so why do I feel weak?
** I know that everything and everyone has a season, so why when
someone's season is over do I weep instead of rejoice?
** I know He is the right way, so why do I go the wrong way?
** I know He is the light, so why do I choose to walk in darkness?
** I know that whatever I ask of GOD, GOD will give me,
so why am I scared to ask?
** I know tomorrow is not promised, so why do I put off
for tomorrow what I can do today?
** I know that the truth shall make me free, so
why do I continue to lie?
** I know He gives us revelation, knowledge and
understanding, so why do I lean on my own understanding?
** I know I should live in the spirit as well as walk in the spirit,
so why do I choose to live in the spirit but walk in the flesh?
** I know that when praises go up, blessings come down,
so why do I refuse to praise Him?
** I know I am saved, so why do I refuse the word He has given me?
** I know He has a plan for me, so why am I rushing it because
** I am eager to do His will, when it is His time not my time?
May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
( Psalms 33:22 *NIV )
BLESSINGS MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST,
God's love for each one of us is tremendous indeed! For
every child of His is very important to Him! So today I will share
with you something that one of our Sister's sent to me this week.
It speaks of God's Tremendous love for each of us.
To you, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST...
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He listens.
He can live anywhere in the Universe, but He chose your heart.
Now God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without
sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the
day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
So face it, SAINTS, He is crazy about you!
Therefore let us; Give thenks to the Lord, for He is
good; His love endures forever! Amen.
( 1 CHRONICLES 16:34 )
