Loving all God's people

" That is why since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God's people, I have not stopped giving thanks to God for you. I always remember you in my prayers ..."

Ephesians 1 : 15 - 16

... God Promises Truth ...

Hello world ...

" And  I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever - the spirit of truth."
John 14 : 16 - 17

"... when he, the spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth." 
John 16 : 13

The feeling I get from reading this verse is similar to that of a clean crisp wind blowing past your face, that sends goosebumps over your cheeks because it is a bit cold and at the same time refreshing and cleansing ...

It gives me a sense of freedom and strength.

Truth is a good building block ... Truth is a strong foundation ...

(an exert from my writings)

Stacey was lying in bed ... she reached over,  picked up her mobile phone and looked at the time.
It was 11.30. 

The yelling had just started and Stacey could hearing everything through the paper thin wall, that was between her and the neighbor.

Even on a good day when all was quiet she could here her neighbor walking up and down his stairs, opening the fridge door and pouring himself a drink from the soda bottle.  The hiss as he opened the bottle was crystal clear and the glass as it clanked down on the sink echoed in the apartment.

In her imagination Stacey though that his apartment must be quiet bare with very little furniture.  What else would make his apartment sound so hallow.  She could hear every sound he made.

She had heard him arguing before but this time seemed different.  So she checked the time again ... only 11.32.  Time was moving slow ... or was it just her annoyance at his disrupting her sleep. 

The anger in his voice seemed harsher somehow.  He seemed to be taunting and daring his sparing partner to make him do it but the other person didn't enter into the argument with him.  She just shouted back a string of swear words then stomped down the stairs and out the front door, slamming it so hard it just bounced back open and hit the wall.

As quickly as the the shouting had began  ... all was quiet ... silence was restored ...

a dog barked from across the road ... and then silence again.

Stacey lay there waiting to hear if the shouting would resume but it didn't ... wondering why this woman would enter into such a volatile relationship ... why no one had told her she deserved better ... she was worthy of kindness and truth ... 

Do you know someone that needs to hear words or kindness and truth?

send them a quick message of Love ... leave a message on there home phone ... or send them a text ... 

Now you have just passed on God's Love ... it's as easy as that ... DONE!

Be blessed and be a blessing
