Salt Of Earth Light Of World

"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:12-17

Thanks Jacque :)

We forget that we are free from sin and get caught up in bondage. We are FREE from sin, so sin will not prevail in my life! Praise you God for sending me this today through my friend! As I was reading 1 Peter last night the passage about being Holy stuck in my mind today, "Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” How amazing He is to me to instruct me and teach me when I veer off path. It is written that we purify ourselves by obeying the truth. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. I know He is right here in my very being, never leaving because He loves me and the plans He has for me have not even entered my mind. Thank you Father for your unending Grace, may I walk worthily in your presence!


I am weak. I lack strength. I have no power.

I Praise God that I have his strength to lean on! There is NO WAY I would be able to uphold the teachings he has personally taught me if he did not give me his strength. In my flesh I am easily overcome by my very nature, but Gods nature dwells in me so that I shall overcome. Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial. Since everything is permissible, I will not be mastered by anything. Lately I have been overcome with anxieties, fears, doubts, and the like; but God is faithful to restore me, not from bringing me out of situations or clearing them from my path, but rather giving me eyes to see clearly and the wisdom of how it affects my walk with him. All I have to do is remain in him and he shall remain in me. Please do not leave me Lord, I cannot conquer these mountains alone. Give me your strength to uphold the will you have for my life.
