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


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.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
(Jeremiah 29:11)

The Lord sent these words when things were looking really, really bleak, to remind His people that He had a plan to work good in it all. Even when we don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, we know Light is already with us.

You are loved!
