I have found
When troublesome thoughts hound
Seeming to be an endless mound
The enemy is close around
Fear and worry try to sound
His tactics need to be confound
When those troublesome thoughts bound
They will no longer surround
Clear minded thoughts will then abound
A peaceful mind is now found

God’s Grace *Rom.3:22-24

Romans 3:22-24 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
Wow! I’ve read this verse many times and all of a sudden it clicked. What freedom! What grace! Through God’s grace, faith is the only way! I looked up the word grace in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
Grace 1 a : unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification. b: a virtue coming from God
Unmerited divine assistance given humans… Wow!
By God’s gift of grace, faith in Christ Jesus makes one righteous. There is nothing one can do to earn faith. There is nothing one can do to earn righteousness. It is simply free. It is the gift of grace which comes from God
and God alone. It is through this grace that one can have faith in Christ. This is it; there is nothing more. All one needs to do is believe, trust, and have faith in Messiah.
This is so powerful. Just meditate on this one verse. What a blessing! Praise be to God, my Father and Lord Jesus Messiah!

Be Careful

Those who grumble
Will eventually crumble
They have all heard
But have ignored the Word
Thinking they have a good defense
But they’ll pay the consequence
The Word of the Lord is true
It was written for me and you
There are many behavioral samples
Written for us as good examples
Whichever behavior you chose
That will determine win or lose
So be careful not to grumble
Take heed lest you could tumble
