My Heart Is owned by You!

When I say I adore you, just you, I am just talking to each of you-you who have been with Me from the beginning, My children, old and young. I’m talking to those who feel miles away and distant from My love. I am talking to you who believe that you’ve failed and there is absolutely no forgiveness available, or who feel like, “What’s the use? There is not any hope! ”

I love you, just you, just how you are. My love is reaching out to you right now. My love, My forgiveness and My mercy are common right there, only for you, if you will just receive them. I adore you! I would like you! I long to keep you near My heart of love. I long to feel you inside my arms. I long to woo you together with feel you and also whisper inside your ear.

If you think weak and tired and battle-worn and weary, this message is perfect for you. If you think you are fainting in your mind, fainting in heart and soul, this message, My precious one, is made for you. If you feel your zeal has left you, and you also feel like you happen to be all washed up, I adore you, and i also need you more than ever before!

If you are sitting on the threshold of brand new horizons, feeling overwhelmed at the challenges ahead, afraid of the future; if you believe you don’t already have it in you to satisfy the necessity that lies prior to deciding to, I wish for you to find out I adore you. I will see you through.

Had you been the only person, i love you merely the way you are-as. I love you, each of you, old and young. I am not stacking up all your faults and failures, all of your mistakes and blunders to keep against you. My eyes are blind to most of these. We have X-ray eyes which allow Me to only begin to see the good as well as the possibilities that others usually do not see. I only see straight to your heart of hearts. I only see yourpriceless and precious, tender heart-and that i adore you.

I view your every tear. I hear your every cry. I feel your every frustration, your every worry, your every burden, your every single desire. I know everything of you-all your wants, all your lacks. I visit your very heart and all of that is inside it, and that i deeply love you.

I long to hold you close, here in my gentle breast. I long for the entire day when our two hearts will beat as one, for I adore you, just you. My precious child who feels far away, I long so that you can realize that I am right there on your side. We have never left you, and that i will never, ever forsake you.

I love you, just you, and here I patiently wait-for you personally! Won’t you please come running into My arms, where we could live and love and revel in this love forever, eternally and immortally without end? I really like you, I need you, and I wish for you! I’m yours. — Jesus

The way to handle Resentment

Will there be someone in your lifetime who’s unjustly hurting you, even wronging you, and there’s not any real cause of it? Because your personalities manage to clash and it just grates upon you and irritates you, can it seem that occasionally it’s impossible to overcome? What are you going to do regarding it in that case?

A while ago I used to be compelled to have with someone that way; these people were employed in our home during that time. It was somebody that was crude and so rude, with such a temper that they would flare up at the very least little thing. It absolutely was a constant trial, and such a bitter trial! Numerous times I really desired to inform them the things i seriously considered them!

But at last I began to draw near the Lord inside the matter, and to throw the whole burden upon Him. If Christ lives in me, then He could overcome this kind of spirit and assist me to never to want to talk back.-I wouldn’t get so hurt over this example, i reasoned that! Well, finally I came utterly for the end of myself and threw myself around the Lord. I said, “Lord, it just isn’t in me to obtain a complete victory as well as love this one as I should. Your nature as well as your love and Your Spirit can overcome., however the old nature rises up” I committed the whole thing into His hands so definitely, so utterly, and later on there was clearly the highest improvement in that person!

Then one night I had been thanking the Lord for changing them, because it was such a wonderful answer to prayer. It was really a miracle! I had been thanking the Lord, and the Holy Spirit whispered to my heart-and i also think it is just a little bit of humor by the Lord. He said, “Well, I not just changed them, however i changed you a bit too! ” That’s exactly what may happen in your own life when you commit similar things to Him.

Just what exactly are you going to do about these situations, in accordance with God’s Word? Well, here are some Scriptures. God’s Word says, “Recompense to no man evil for evil” (Romans 12: 17). And, talking about Jesus, “As He was reviled, [He] reviled not again” (1 Peter 2: 23).

“Notice that none render evil for evil unto any man” (1 Thessalonians 5: 15), and “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12: 21). Those are precious admonitions from God’s Word!

Overcome evil with good? How? -By showing anyone which you love them. Do them some special favor. Take the initiative and go out of your path to tell them something you prefer on them! Maybe this person’s heart is hungering for love. Alternatively, maybe that woman is wanting someone to speak with her and love her. There’s surely some trait that you can admire.

– From “Meditation Moments,” a Gospel radio broadcast by Virginia Brandt Berg (mother of David Brandt Berg)

I suppose there are times when all of us appear against difficult individuals who are somewhat of any trial to us. When this happens, as opposed to permitting them to make us impatient and irritated, we may well remember the words of the great preacher, C.H. Spurgeon, who said, “They must have already been sent into the world, not too I may save their souls, but that they might discipline mine! ”

–Francis Gay

An Extract of Wisdom

Recently, when my dentist extracted one of my wisdom teeth, he told me this interesting fact: “Whenever a tooth is taken off soon after it will become troublesome, the bone it’s lodged in lets go of the tooth easily. But when you allow time for you to pass, the bone becomes less forgiving. Good bone and bad tooth become intertwined.”

“Less forgiving … ” my dentist said. These words made me notice that my soul is a lot like that bone. When someone does me a wrong, I feel resentment. It’s natural. But as resentment takes root, it takes over, and my soul loses the strength to forgive.

Nowadays, when I’m done an incorrect, I’m quick to uproot it, before my good soul becomes too intertwined with bad feelings.

-Jane Tilley

Keeping hurt is like grabbing a rattle snake through the tail: You are likely to be bitten. As the poison of bitterness works its way with the many elements of your personality, death will occur-death which is more far-reaching than your physical death, for this has got the possible ways to destroy those surrounding you as well.

– Charles Stanley

The Bible says, “Thou shalt not bear any grudge” (Leviticus 19: 17-18).

Once I forgive, I am to not carry any bullets forward on the journey. I am to empty out my explosives, all of my ammunition of anger and revenge. I am not to “bear any grudge.”

I cannot meet this demand. It is actually altogether beyond me. I cannot reveal a precise, bright, blue sky without a touch of storm brewing anywhere, although i might utter words of forgiveness.

Nevertheless the Lord of grace can do it for me. He is able to change my weather. He can produce a new climate. He is able to “renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51: 10), and then in that new atmosphere nothing shall live which seeks to poison and destroy. Grudges shall die and revenge shall give location to goodwill, the strong genial presence making its home inside the new heart.

-J. H. Jowett

Let It Go

Carrying a grudge is a loser’s game. Since it leaves you with additional pain than you experienced to start with, it is the ultimate frustration. Recall the pain sensation to be wronged, the hurt for being stung, cheated, demeaned. Doesn’t the memory of it fuel the fire of fury again? Do you experience feeling that hurt every time your memory lights on the people who did you wrong?

Your very own memory turns into a videotape inside your soul that plays unending reruns of your own old rendezvous with pain. Is it fair to yourself-this wretched justice of not forgiving?

The only way to heal the pain which will not heal itself is to forgive the person who hurt you. Forgiving heals your memory while you improve your memory’s vision. When you release the wrongdoer through the wrong, you cut a malignant tumor from your inner life. You set a prisoner free-yourself.

-Lewis B. Smedes

How do you conquer your enemy? Through making him your friend, -.

When a Hindu woman became a follower of Christ, her husband and other relatives made an effort to make her life miserable. 1 day a missionary asked her, “Whenever your husband is angry and persecutes you, what do you do? ”

She replied, “I simply cook the meals better and sweep the floor a little cleaner. As he speaks unkindly, I answer him mildly, trying to show him in each and every manner in which once i became a Christian I also was a better wife.”

He could not withstand the practical preaching of his wife, despite the fact that that husband resisted all of the sermons from the missionary. The Holy Spirit used that woman’s gracious testimony and in the end the man received Jesus.

When we are wronged, we could either harbor resentment, or search for methods to show God’s like to our antagonist.

– Henry G. Bosch

If the concentration camp at Ravensbr{ck was liberated by the Allies after World War 2, some torn wrapping paper was found, which an unknown prisoner had scribbled these lines:

Also the ones from ill will, although “Oh Lord, remember not merely the people of excellent will. But do not remember all the suffering they may have inflicted on us; recall the fruits we have brought forth, thanks to this suffering – our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, our courage, our generosity, the greatness of heart that has grown from this. And when they are offered to judgment, let each of the fruits which we have now borne be their forgiveness.”

Love covers numerous sins (1 Peter 4: 8), and will provide you with the power and grace to just let things pass, to forgive others everbody knows that you simply yourself have to be forgiven.

And really try to help and pray for and love them, you’ll discover that will solve almost all of your problems, if you’ll just forget yourself and think a little more about others! Should you get your mind off yourself and on others you’ll realize that this is just what will bring you true happiness and joy. That’s the formula for locating joy: Put Jesus first, then others, and you then! -J-O-Y!

To start with, get your mind on Jesus, then He’ll help you get it on to your neighbor, and assist you to love him as yourself.

-David Brandt Berg.

Be not disturbed at not being understood; be disturbed rather at not being understanding. &&&- Ancient Chinese proverb

The faults of others are like headlights with an approaching automobile: They simply seem more glaring than our very own.

Forgiven sinners know love and show love.


Four Magic Words

A nurse ushered me into my grandma’s room. Lying within the hospital bed, she looked so small. Her eyes were closed. I sat down quietly.

I was on my own method to seminary and packed with self-doubt. I had just given up a full scholarship to medical school, and everybody thought I used to be making a mistake. The nurse had warned me that she didn’t have much strength left, despite the fact that i desperately wanted Grandma’s advice. After thirty minutes, Grandma hadn’t stirred, so I just started talking. You,. Which is suddenly she awakened, asking, “Danny? ”

She explained how her faith had guided her all her life. After a few minutes, an excellent peace settled around us. I heard her whisper some parting words, although i kissed Grandma and turned to leave. I leaned up to listen. “I think inside you,” she said.

In more than 20 years of work as a Christian psychologist, I actually have transferred her words often, although grandma died that night. Four simple words can create a lifetime of difference.

–Dan Montgomery

I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm amongst the men [inside my company] the greatest asset I possess, and the way to produce the best within a man is by appreciation and encouragement.

There exists little else that so kills the ambitions of any man as criticisms from his superiors. I never criticize anyone. In my opinion in giving a male incentive to operate. So, loathe to discover fault, although i am anxious to praise. I am just hearty within my approbation and lavish within my praise if I like anything.

–Charles Schwab (American Industrialist, 1862-1939)

The applause of any single human being is of great consequence.–Samuel Johnson (English writer, 1709-1784)

The deepest principle in human nature will be the craving to become appreciated.–William James ( American philosopher, 1842-1920)

The ability of Praise

There exists a standard courtesy that will apply in most human relations–making the effort to thank those who help us. My friend Mike Somdal is really a specialist at this. He has mastered the fine art of creating people feel great by thanking them regularly. That’s one reason he is so successful running a business. Often he will call customers just to thank them again for the order they placed the other day or perhaps for the recommendation they created to another customer, or for the lunch. Anything. And prior to the conversation has ended, Mike has often secured another order. Of course, if he called simply with ulterior motives, his clients would recognize the manipulation and resist. But Mike has made gratitude a lifelong habit, and people who work with him appreciate that quality. And we respond.

The skill of praise–what is known positive reinforcement in the current psychological jargon–is an important art for the executive or teacher [or anyone working with people] to perfect. If you have a complaint employees usually express, it is actually this: “I never get any feedback from your boss–except when something fails.” Once I bring home an excellent grade he acts as though it’s nothing–that I’m finally doing a few things i should have been doing all along., even though as well as the teenagers who sit inside my office let me know over and over, “My father gets around my case when I mess up in class” think and quit. Just how long has it been as you took a full one minute to speak to your son or daughter about some fine thing they’ve just done? Or perhaps your secretary, or perhaps the managers who work under you?

When someone comes along who genuinely thanks us, we will follow that person a really long way.–Alan Loy McGinnis

Giving by Praising

Every time we meet, from you I hear

Some word of praise, a little bit of cheer.

The truth is some hidden, struggling trait;

Encourage it and make it great.

Tight-fisted little buds of great

Bloom large since you said they might.

A glad, mad music in me sings;

My soul sprouts tiny flaming wings.

My day assumes a brand-new zest.

Your gift of praising brings my best,

Revives my spirit, flings it high;

For God loves praise, therefore should i.

–Author Unknown

A few days before my father died, after i was a senior in college, he took me aside and showed me a box of clippings of magazine and newspaper articles he had hidden and written away. He replied, “Your mother discouraged me from writing because I don’t have a college education, so I’ve tried it in secret and she doesn’t know., when I asked in surprise why he hadn’t shown me these before”

Mother had not meant to be a discourager, but she had stated what seemed an evident fact to her: If you’re not educated, you shouldn’t write.

He had “hidden his light under a bushel., even though my father had not let this attitude depress him” He informed me he had written a post for that

Advance magazine however it had not been published. “I guess I reached for something a little too big now,” he shared. How touched I had been which he had explained about his interest in writing and also the article he had sent to the Advance magazine! Within days my father dropped dead within a Boston subway station, and on the day from the funeral the brand new issue of Advance arrived–along with his article published within it. Had he not confided in me, I might never have opened that issue.

We have the framed article with my father’s picture hanging inside my study, and each time I glance at it I wonder what that man may have become as a writer if perhaps someone had believed in him.

We are now living in a discouraging world full of individuals who put us down. What bright lights we are able to be when we repeat the simple words, “I actually have confidence within you! ”

–Florence Littauer

We All Need Encouragement!

Quotes from David Brandt Berg

Feel a certain amount of inferiority and tend to obtain a little discouraged with themselves, therefore encouragement is an extremely essential thing, despite the fact that many people are certainly not conceited! I do it all time! –I praise everybody for everything they are doing that I see is good.

People need the encouragement of others, but many of us fail very often to convey appreciation or comfort to people about us! Since we must take into account every idle word (see Matthew 12: 36,37), so that we must for each idle silence!

The showing of genuine gratitude and appreciation of [another’s] help immediately tends to create a proffered friend much more friendly, and inclined to befriend you again.

Attempt to remind yourself constantly of others’ good qualities, the great things, and do not think about their shortcomings. All the way through the Bible, the Lord commended people for his or her good works. It’s our service and good works for Him which he especially commends, although it has nothing to do with our salvation, that is a free gift. Thank God that He really appreciates our sacrifice as well as the things we all do for Him far beyond the phone call of duty!

Remember, everyone is hungry for praise and starving for honest appreciation!
