Why It’s Hard To Find A Good Church To Attend

Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to find a good church? Yes, it most likely would have the same message to spread, but how and what to do can often bring more distance to possible new followers of Christ. Church should always be a place of kind and welcoming sanctuary for all. It’s just how Jesus is.

I know I’ve experienced a few places where people just seem so ‘cold’ and distant. It really didn’t make me want to stick around. I even started to wonder if that was what Christ was all about. I felt very uncomfortable at those places.

Eventually, I discovered the truth. Jesus Christ is very welcoming to all. He wants everyone to feel loved, accepted, and comfortable.

Yes, I understand that the sizes of the churches could seem overwhelming. Believe me, I almost ran away from one because of its size alone (gotta love being introverted problems). But, something inside of me, decided to stay and I’m glad that I did. Size doesn’t matter. It’s the love that counts. The love that we share to others.
So, if you ever see anyone who you don’t know at church (whether if they’re sitting alone or not), acknowledge them. That brief moment could be a life changing experience. Love and welcome others just like Jesus has done for you.

God bless.

5 Things

Happy Fri-Yay everyone! 😊 it’s nearing the end of another glorious week and it still amazes me how fast this year is going. Thanksgiving is in (less than) TWO weeks!!! Crazy, right?

Well, these end of weeks moments I’d like to take a moment of gratitude of what happened through the week. My series (5 things) relates to 5 things which I am thankful of for this week. I try to really think about this because we all know how life can get. We often forget what our blessings are unfortunately.

My 5 includes the following:

1. The boy. Yes, you have guessed it, I do have a boyfriend. I am so glad to have him. Even though we do drive each other crazy constantly, I’m lucky to have him. He’s helped me out so much and I will forever be grateful. I looked upon this because as a dear friend of mine is now going through a breakup of her own. It’s making me realize how great my life really is.

2. God. Once again, He has proven me that He never leaves my side. Another trying week of stresses and letdowns, I know I can always lean onto Him for comfort and guidance. He gives me the peace and strength to continue.

3. Job. Hectic moments. Hectic people. Hectoc life. But, it provides food, shelter, and other necessities to get me by.

4. Sunny days. A reminder that after all of the storms that life gives us, sunshine is just a moment away. Be positive and keep moving forward.

5. Ability to see good in everything. We all have bad days and moments, but deep inside, there’s a good person. When we focus more on the positive, our lives begin to change. One of my favorite quotes happen to be “hope for the best; prepare for the worst.” We all know that bad things happen, but that won’t stop me from believing in the best of something while being prepared by a possible betrayal.

I would love to hear what your top 5 things that you are most thankful that happened through the week. They could be from both good and bad situations since every situation can have a learning experience attached.

God bless everyone. Shine the light for all to see.

Are Christians Perfect?

Hmm…let me think this through…no!

I don’t know any Christians who think they are perfect or close to. Just because we believe in God and His ways does not mean we’re perfect by any means. God is the only perfect one.

If we were perfect, then we wouldn’t be struggling in every day life. Finances, emotions, and every battle we often come across on a daily basis.

With all of my struggles and tests I still find myself going through now, I’m surprised that God hasn’t given up on me it, but I will forever be grateful. It makes me lean on Him even more which is exactly what we should be doing anyway.

So, no, I am far away from perfection. I am a work-in-progress constantly saying no to demons and trying my best to focus on the Lord. What helps me through the battles is “What Would Jesus Do” in these situations? This usually calms me down.

There is nothing on earth that is close to perfection.

Prayer Circle

I believe we need another prayer circle on here. There is too much craziness and chaos going on in the world and we would just need to pray at this moment. Who’s with me? I’ll start it out. I will list out my items for prayer and concerns for this morning. I hope you would follow through with me. Let’s all get together and pray. He is listening.

1. My strength and guidance to get through this crazy thing called life through Jesus Christ.

2. People of Puerto Rico. They have been hit hard by hurricane Maria and it just breaks my heart. Pray for them to find comfort and peace as they try to relive their lives again. Pray for them to receive all that they need as they rebuild their community. Pray for love through this.

Let’s keep this going, shall we? Feel free to leave your prayers in the comments (or even message me your thoughts and prayers if you would like to keep quiet) and I will pray for whatever is on your mind.

God bless everyone! You are loved!
