N.O.W. Speaks = New-Beginnings is our Witness Speaks - Insightful conversations where testimonies are shared on the journey for how next level living occurred. Living life more abundantly as promised from God's Word. John 10:10 The Message Version 6-10 Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep rustlers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.
The journey is constant. The struggle is real. The victory is available. The goal can be achieved. How? Well there is a realm where our destiny is unveiled. We can tap into this arena by simply putting our faith into action and our works into a precise plan. So, yes it can be ours to behold if we just strive on...
If God said it then it's a done deal. Jesus spoke the word to His Disciples that they were going to get in the boat to go across to the other side. So, when the winds started to swell and waves were overflowing; why did the men on the boat start to act out in fear? It's a matter of who are you going to TRUST? Environmental Circumstances or God's Word. Text Mark 4:35-41
God has promised so much and I am just experiencing a small portion of what He has for me. I will say while getting to this point there were some devastating moments. NOW though is time for New Beginnings to be my Witness. Love and Blessings to all!
Naomi knew something about having a BitterSweet life journey. Check out the Book of Ruth. I also wanted to provide some insight as why my life has some Essence of Myrrh. Love, Blessings, and Peace to all! Miriam Proverbs 3:5-7
When all is stripped down and the only thing that is visible does it reflect only you Lord? God help me reflect you, your love, your way, and just you for nothing else matters! What do I reflect? What do people see? What is my reflection showing?
Imagine you are the person in this story. His hands are around your neck and within 10 seconds there is no more breath for you. This actually happened to me and when I realized I was about to die I only had roughly 10 seconds before I could not breath any longer. My last thought is, "Now I am going to die!" What would you do if you only had 10 seconds of breath left in your body here on earth to live?
When all odds are seemingly against you and the door is shutting to your victory; what is your perspective? I would encourage you to press on towards the goal of your heart that in faith you have prayed for so that marvelous victory in Christ Jesus can be revealed for all mankind to witness. If you quit or give up even in the face of opposition; you will never obtain your goal(s). So again I ask what is your Perspective are you the Victor or the Victim?
Today I prayed and then I listened. I was impressed to define the word Perpetuate. I asked myself why this word? Then I realized that if I personally want change in my life for whatever situation I have wanted; I must be the one to choose to change. I needed to realize what do I consistently do that is in direct opposition to what I say or think or believe I want to do (what I have hoped for being or realized or manifested in my personal and professional life). So, for me I had to define this word as what is my habit? Then what will I do if I don't want this habit to dictate my current and eternal destiny? I offer my own thoughts and breakdown of the word for how we can have life and that life more abundant. I truly believe it starts with the choice and active decision to change who we subscribe as the author and finisher of our faith...then all the other pieces of our life's puzzle can start taking shape - one piece at a time and one moment at a time,.
