I messed up at work today,” tomorrow I can do better.” I was rude to my wife, ” I can do better”. I failed miserably as a father,” I can do better”. I disappointed my best friend, “I can do better.” I gave bad advice, ” I can do better. It’s nice to have this kind of motivation in mind when we fall short of God’s glory. We are going to fail in life, multiple times. If you’re anything like me on occasion you fall flat on your face. Saying, “I can do better,” is good but how about if we said,” through God I can do better.” That changes everything. There are obstacles placed in our everyday lives that sometimes we cannot hurdle. but through prayer, meditation, and scripture we can overcome all. Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
““Teacher, which command in the law is the most important?” Jesus answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and most important command. And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’”
Matthew 22:36-39 NCV
Please take time to reflect on the following;
Is God first in your life?
Do you love God with, all your heart, all your soul and, all your mind?
If you answered “no” to either question, it’s impossible to love your neighbor as you love yourself. When God lives in you his love flows through you to others like living water. People ask, “who is my neighbor?” Everyone is your neighbor. Everyone that cross your path in life. When you love God, He gives you love and compassion for others no matter if they are rich, poor, brown, black or white. We’re all God’s children. I pray that we have a greater love for God which will overflow to everyone in the world. God bless you!❤️
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV https://1corinthians.bible/1-corinthians-13-13
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/col.3.23-24.NIV
“If we say we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins, because we can trust God to do what is right. He will cleanse us from all the wrongs we have done. If we say we have not sinned, we make God a liar, and we do not accept God’s teaching.”
1 John 1:8-10 NCV
“As the Scriptures say: “There is no one who always does what is right, not even one.
God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same: Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard, and all need to be made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. They need to be made free from sin through Jesus Christ.”
Romans 3:10 22-24 NCV

Yesterday my mind went to a dark place but God is great. I had gone down to the gym to get a quick workout. Every channel it seemed had bad news on it about the protests and rioting that are going on all over. I had looked out the window of the gym only to see people boarding up their windows frantically. I used to fight quite a bit and really enjoyed it when I was younger. Suddenly thoughts of violence started swarming through my head. I was thinking of all those people that were harming others trying to get their point across and anger had set in. All throughout my workout that’s all I could think about was stopping all this evil with more violence. I had left the gym and decided to stop at a store to purchase something to drink. As I was walking up to the door I saw a older Chevy pickup flatbed that would be perfect for my business, so I stopped and asked the guy how much his truck would be if he were to sell it. The man responded I’m not selling my truck, I need it for my business. So I asked what his business was and he told me he is almond grower. We got into a discussion about who he used for his pollination this last year and apparently he has a friend that is a honeybee broker and they charge quite a bit to get your bees through them. I ended up giving him my number for next year’s pollination and offered him a good deal to use me and my bees. It seemed like suddenly my mind had changed from evil thoughts to something good and positive. God had intervened and later told me to be praying for all the events that are occurring and that are going to happen. Praise God for that that he was able to snap me out of my stinking thinking. I don’t want to hurt or harm anyone but I also don’t want other people to get hurt through this process. Right now is the perfect time to be hitting our knees and praying for both sides. The people protesting need to be prayed for that their hearts will find a different resolution. And the people being protested on that they have God’s protection.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7 NIV https://john.bible/john-15-7
“All believers, come here and listen, let me tell you what God did for me. I called out to him with my mouth, my tongue shaped the sounds of music. If I had been cozy with evil, the Lord would never have listened. But he most surely did listen, he came on the double when he heard my prayer. Blessed be God: he didn’t turn a deaf ear, he stayed with me, loyal in his love.”
Psalm 66:16-20 MSG
““Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Matthew 6:25, 31, 33 ESV
