Love and Relationships Introduction

Hello Girls! 
I hope this blog clears some things up about Love and Relationships through the word of God.
  Love is summarised in 1 Corinthians Chapter Thirteen Verse Four-
Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.

1 John Chapter Three Verse Six
This is how we've come to to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our follow believers, and not just be out ourselves. If you see some brother or sister in need and have means to do nothing about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love? It disappears. And you've make it disappear. 

Girls! How incredible is that? God would sacrifice his only son for our sinner selves at the time. 
That's love, he is love, his love for us is unconditional, he doesn't ask for anything in return. He loves anybody and everybody, you cant be in a relationship with God unless you open your heart fully. Gods door is always open, our door is closed unless we open it. It only opens from our side, so open your door and invite god into your life. Begin a relationship or strengthen your relationship with God. A relationship with God is surprising and wonderful. Let Christ Jesus save you! Open your door!

God is love- He taught us love when he sacrificed Jesus! That is unconditional love.
Live sacrificially, love everyone! We are all children of God therefore we need to love each other and be there for one another (in my opinion we need to share our journeys with god with each other and inspire and encourage each other).

This blog will continue for a few weeks as I believe it is an amazing topic throughout the Bible. 

Thank you for reading this blog. 
God bless

Prayer and Praise.

Hello Girls! 
I hope this blog helps you become more aware of the impact of praying and praising. 

Girls we need to stop moaning and moping around, and praise the Lord for this incredible life we have been given. Yes I understand all of us have problems for example health problems, learning difficulties, and family feuds. But when your dashing around in the busyness of your life, just stop for a moment and look around, look at the beautiful planet our extraordinary creator has made for you and me and all of us.

Next time your out and a bout just pause for one moment and look, look around you. 
Gods Creation 
God has created such a wonderful planet and sometimes we can just go ahead with our days and forget to appreciate the beauty of the Earth. He created this all for us so we need to thank him! Simply praise him for his creation.

We cant expect to receive anything from God, if we don't thank him for the things we already have. We need to simplify the process of prayer! Starting with praising and worshiping the amazing life giver.

Psalm chapter nineteen verse one.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His         hands. 

Nature is a constant reminder placed right in front of us every single day. 
It's a reminder that we walk upon an amazing planet. The skies, trees, flowers, the animals, the mountains, the rivers, and seas all are reminders of God's power, love for us and glory.

The Hotline
Prayer is a hotline straight to God. The hotline becomes severed if their is a lack of praise. Our mission in life is to praise God for everything he has done and everything he is working on. Show him how much he means to you. I know this is hard when you are waiting for a breakthrough/answer on something you have been burdened with and need guidance with, but by showing God you love him and by praising him in your darkest hours shows him how dedicated you are to him. It shows God how strong your faith in him is.

Psalm Chapter Sixty- Eight Verse Twenty- Three 
Blessed be the Lord—
    day after day he carries us along.
He’s our Savior, our God, oh yes!
    He’s God-for-us, he’s God-who-saves-us.
Lord God knows all
    death’s ins and outs.
What’s more, he made heads roll,
    split the skulls of the enemy
As he marched out of heaven,
    saying, “I tied up the Dragon in knots,
    put a muzzle on the Deep Blue Sea.”
You can wade through your enemies’ blood, 
    and your dogs taste of your enemies from your boots.
                                                                          [Good News] Translation

Trust in the Lord with everything you have, he won't let you down, just trust in his perfect timing. God walks along side you everyday and is guiding you along the path he has created for you. 

Next time you pray to God open your heart and mind to god, let him have his way with you. I fully opened up to God and his plans for me and I was truly amazed at what he had in-store for me. Get out of your comfort zone and your comfortable life style, and explore more of Gods word and his planet he has created for each of us.

Important Prayer
Girls, we need to pray importantly... We need to stop praying recklessly, for example instead of praying to pass an exam/test, why not pray for good time management throughout revision for the exam/test. Which then will help towards passing.
God gave us free will, why not use it wisely.

Godly Plan for 2014
-No more complaints and a lot more encouragement!
-Be more grateful for the things you already have in your life!
-Pray Wisely
-Pray with your whole heart! 
-No more worrying and a lot more hoping- Always have Hope!

I hope it helps some of you girls out there who need to strengthen your bond and connection to God. Remember Praying is a straight hotline to God.

Bullying, Bitterness and Belonging. Part Three

Hi girls hope your all well! This blog will focus on Bullying, Bitterness and Belonging.
Part Three.
Lets start with Belonging-

Many dictionaries define belonging by a happiness felt in a secure relationship.
We all need a sense of belonging, for in belonging is security and acceptance. Feeling accepted gives you confidence to share your deepest feelings without worry of rejection. And when you belong to God, that security and acceptance can never be taken away.

When you feel alone for whatever reason just remember you belong to God!
Deuteronomy Chapter Thirty-Three Verse Twenty-Seven
The Eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you.

God is supporting you along your path of life, he is there every step you make, every corner you turn, and bump you trip over. He is so involved in your life, sometimes we forget that he knew about us before we were even born. 

Psalm Chapter Seventy-Three Verse Twenty-Four
I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.

Romans Chapter One Verse Six
You are included among those... who have been called to belong to Jesus Christ.

Only you can be sure if you belong to God or not.
1 John Chapter 2 Verse Three to Five.
We can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims. 'I know God', but doesn't obey God's Commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God's word truly show how completely they love him. This is how we know we are living in him. 

Your obedience is a great reflection of your love for God and your belief in him. God understands that we are not perfect so sometimes it's hard to obey him all the time. God looks for your desire to please and obey him!
He looks for your desires, commitments, and your efforts in which you should want to please him daily. 

Christ Jesus promises anyone who belongs to him there will be no condemnation.

Girls! Listen up! 
So when your waiting for a breakthrough, and your at rock bottom, don't give up, keep obeying God's commandments, you belong to him therefore he will come to rescue... He always does and he always will! 
Our amazing almighty creator will pick you up no matter how many times the devil knocks you down! 

Activity: Every morning wake up and tell yourself that you belong to Jesus Christ, praise him and thank him for the goodness in your life. And tell yourself that no child of god will be condemned.

Bullying, Bitterness and Belonging. Part Two

Hi girls hope your all well! This blog will focus on Bullying, Bitterness and Belonging.
Part Two.
Lets start with Bitterness-
Bitterness comes when you allow anger to control you.

1 Samuel Chapter Thirty Verse Six
David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters, and they began to talk of stoning him. But David found strength in the Lord his God.

2 Corinthians Chapter 2 Verse Seven

It is time to forgive and comfort him. Otherwise he may be overcome by discouragement. 

Bitterness comes when other hurt you and you refuse to forgive them. Don't ever stop forgiving and forgetting. Remember that God has forgiven you even though you continue your tendency to sin.

Just as God forgive you without limit, you should forgive others without counting how many times. Yes forgiveness isn't cheap. The hard work of real forgiveness reveals a love that is tough but lasting.

Luke Chapter Twenty-Three Verse Thirty-Four.

Jesus said ''Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing.''
If we don't forgive others, how can we expect God and others to forgive us?

Matthew Chapter Five Verse Thirty-eight
''Here's another old saying that deserves a second look: Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. Is that going to get us anywhere? Here's what I propose: 'Don't hit back at all. 'If someone strikes you, stand there and take it. If someone drags you into court and sues for the shirt off your back, giftwrap your best coat and make a present of it. And if someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit-for-tat stuff. Live Generously.

[The Message Remix] Translations are used throughout this blog.

If we don't forgive others this leads to unresolved bitterness, which then leads to hatred, anger, jealousy, and revenge. It can keep you from communicating to God and others and it can blind you from noticing God's blessings. This isn't the right way to live. 

The antidote to bitterness is simply forgiveness. It will unburden you and cancel any debts and unchain you from unresolved feelings such as anger and frustration.

God promises to forgive you
Colossians Chapter Three Verse Thirteen.

Don't Forget That!

Bullying, Bitterness and Belonging. Part One

Hi girls hope your all well! 
This blog will focus on Bullying, Bitterness and Belonging

Part One

Lets start with Bullying-                                                                                         

Sadly many girls from a young age are bullied and a minority of these girls take there own life in attempt to escape this problem. This has got to be put to a stop! Girls are a major target for bullies as the bullies think girls are vulnerable and weaker and less capable of winning, I personally think this is a load of baloney! 
As girls we need to fight! 

Whether it be a bully making everyone laugh at you or a bully personally attacking you and threatening you - It is wrong!

Daughters of the Lord are protected and you need to realize you're not worthless and in fact you are all daughters of god, and even though you can forget for a moment that your not on your own, you have The Lord watching over you,bullying is the work of the devil when you trust people and they hurt you this is the devil trying to say, look you can't even trust your friends, how could you trust a being who's letting you down! That's when you have to become warriors and fight! 

We need to get our spirit swords out and fight back to the devil and say no I won't be treat like this, I was created in the image of our Heavenly Father and I will not be defeated! 

I will forgive the bully, as it's good for my soul and it's harder than you think forgiving someone who hasn't asked for forgiveness, but that is what god wants his children to do.

Forgiveness is not a feeling - it's a decision we make because we want to do what's right before God. It's a quality decision that won't be easy and it may take time to get through the process, depending on the severity of the offense.

Joyce Meyer

Bullying makes people alone and vulnerable, we were created as daughters of god, not perfectly strong people who don't need help... we were created to be imperfect worshipers of Christ Jesus! He loves us even though we aren't perfect. 

The definition of perfection is something or someone that has no defects. By my understanding the only perfect being is God himself. 
God is love, hope, joy, protective, providing, pure, gentle, courageous, compassionate, light, holy, abundant, salvation, creative, life giver... and so much more! He is risen, the almighty God in which he loves you!

So if you are struggling with a bullying situation just remember Jesus died for you so you could live a free and joyous life! He loves you and you are no alone!

Activity: Instead of acting on your own in a tough situation, pray! Pray like you've never prayed before! Instead of asking for god to fix everything, try asking god for the patience and understanding of how you can fix things. He gave you free will and you need explore that free will with God's help and guidance. 

I found this informing video on Youtube recently and thought I'd share it with you. It's not my video but gives a really amazing message to everyone regarding bulling.
