Mightier Than the Sword

Mr. Edward Bulwer-Lytton said this in 1839 “The pen is mightier than the sword.” It is believed that he felt that the written word had more power than acts of violence. He was a playwright and an author, so he took words very seriously.

I can agree that some written works have hit me deeper than some words spoken to me every will. For instance the Bible, or books of poetry, effect me stronger than a spoken conversation with someone.

The media in the USA has proven this statement by Mr. Bulwer-Lytton to be true in a lot of ways. Our newspapers, blog posts, promotional flyers and many other non verbal communication can lean a nation left or right. I am not politically speaking here, just stating facts.

A person can be proven innocent or guilty by the words penned about them. A woman can be seen as less than a man due to the words penned about her. A person’s life could be judged based on what was written in their obituary.

Crazy that words have so much power huh? Well, let’s ponder on this. Words are formed in our minds, then we think on them, pull them from our hearts, and share them either by writing them or speaking them.

I remember once as a youth I wrote a letter confessing that I would commit suicide because of the stress of my life. I had been doing homework at the kitchen table and wrote the letter in middle of my notebook. Someone in my family looked at it. It created an issue! I did not use nice words. I used words full of pain and depression! I wrote about all that hurt me and sadly my family did not see it as a cry for HELP! They took my suicide note as a personal attack, why because of the WORDS WRITTEN THEREIN.

I cut my older cousin deep to the depths of her heart and soul by saying “I wish my family would leave me the *@#^! ALONE!” That one sentence blocked her from seeing the other three paragraphs that detailed how I would end my life. That one sentence “blinded” her to the truth of my despair and she did not consul me she attacked me.

As you may know I did not succeed in my suicide attempt but I have NOT given up using written word to get my feelings, thoughts, and ideas out of the abyss of emotional roller-coasters, inside of my heart, mind and soul. I am thankful for the opportunity to share my gift with the world.

May this “pen” of mine “stab” many to change their lives and those around them for the better!

Do NOT look back.

DEVOTIONAL WAS FIRST SHARED BY CO CO LEWIS

Raise your standards, don’t lower your expectations. You attract what you believe you deserve. No one is worth forfeiting your destiny. Let go and forgive, no matter how much it hurt. Stop thinking that your failures and mistakes are too much for God. He has cast all of your sins behind His back (Isaiah 38:17). He isn’t looking at them, so you don’t need to look at them either. We all have problems, but you must lean into God, trust His promises, and wait for victory. The battles that you face do not belong to you; be still and see the victory of the Lord on your behalf. (2 Chronicles 20:17).⁣

There is so much more ahead of you than there was behind you. You are fearfully and wonderfully created in the image of God. (Ps 139). God has you. Stop stressing over things that He has already resolved and you will see come to pass. The same power that raised Christ from the dead, now lives in you. You will overcome. When you have faith, it opens the door for God to work in your life. You have the strength and grace to accomplish what’s ahead of you today. No matter what you are facing, don’t give up. You are not stuck in any circumstance; there’s always an option you can’t see. When you stay in faith, it’s just a matter of time until you see your breakthrough.

There will be a day when God causes you to forget. God is going to make up for the circumstance in such an amazing way that you’re not going to remember the pain of the past. You’re not going to wake up thinking about who hurt you; you’re going to wake up thinking about how blessed you are. You’re not going to go through the day, feeling discouraged by the loss, with that heaviness. God is going to turn things around to where all you can think about is how grateful you are. You’re going to have a deep satisfaction, a joy that you can’t explain. I pray supernatural divine intervention for every hardship you are facing. God can do the impossible, in the name of Jesus. Have a grateful Sunday in CHRIST.

Kingdom Eunuchs & The Surprise of Kingdom Singleness — Soul of a Sparrow

Please check out this post by Mr. Jeb. It is a POWERFUL read!

God is REAL

Yes, I said it. God is real. He is the Creator of EVERYTHING. Johnny Appleseed did not plant the trees. Our Creator did. Genesis 1 and 1 says “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth.” He created you, me, EVERYTHING.

The Earth is home to all His creation. The Sun, Moon, and stars. The birds, fish, and other animals. Flowers, trees, and all types of plants. And He called us His most valuable creation. You want to know why??? Because we friends, carry His glory everywhere we go! We are mobile tabernacles filled with His glory. His presence resides in us! His love is shown through us! We are created in His image and likeness. He gave us dominion over every other creature. Not so we can be prideful but so we can act like Royal People. 1 Peter 2:9 says “But God chose you to be His holy people. You are royal priests. You are a holy nation. You are God’s special treasure. You are all these things so that you can give Him praise. God brought you out of darkness into His wonderful light.”

You may not believe in God. You may believe in the universe or yourself. But let me tell you. Abba Father believes in YOU! The only reason you are reading this post is because He will it. All things work together… (see Romans chapter 8) You mean the most to God and your life matters! I hope you seek out truth. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the one who can introduce you to Abba Father. Call out to Him today and He will answer!

Numbers 23:19 “God is not a mere human. He can’t lie. He is not a human being. he does not change His mind. He speaks, and then He acts. He makes a promise, and then He keeps it.”

Peace and Strength to you all!

Another Devotional From Sis CoCo Lewis

Are you functioning in your God-given authority, or have you been misled to believe it’s not there? To have authority is to speak with authority. You belong to God, that means you have access to His power. “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you” (Luke 10:19, NIV). If circumstances are not in your favor, don’t be discouraged. Cast your cares to the Lord. Let His peace that passes all understanding guard your heart and keep you as you wait on Him to turn all things around for your good.

In the times you don’t understand and when circumstances seem like they’re not going to work out, you may be tempted to relive the disappointments, the hurts, and the unfair situations. Instead, push away those thoughts; don’t let them take up valuable space in your life. Fill your mind with the good things God has done. Forgive the people who offended you. Release them. Forgive yourself. Let it go. It’s better in the hands of God. Don’t worry and fret. Don’t let that negative emotional baggage define your life.

God doesn’t allow it to define you, and neither should you. Don’t let people keep you from what God put in your heart. Always be respectful, but remember, you’re not going to have to give an account of what you did with your life to people; you’re going to stand before God. You rather disappoint people than disappoint God. You rather hurt a few feelings than miss your destiny. Keep your faith and follow God. He will take you right where you belong. God is your life source. Let Him fill you with His Peace and Presence right now, in the name of Jesus. Have a forgiving Sunday in CHRIST.

There is someone watching YOU!

There is someone who HATES you for NO REASON

Nope, because the person I speak of is a spirit of evil. The king and father of all things evil. He is JEALOUS of YOU. You can REPENT and be in God’s good graces, he NEVER CAN REPENT. He is a DEFEATED FOE! Use the WORD OF GOD, the TRUTH against his lying self and WALK IN VICTORY!
