Dear Friends in Christ,
Words are powerful! How are you using yours?
Our Spirit heart is like a balloon that we fill. Is your Spirit filled with Peace, Joy, and Freedoms in Christ? Or, perhaps are you allowing someone’s negativity control your spirit way too much?
We must decrease, so that God can increase in our life!
Like a balloon would pop with too much air, we must let the bad air out of our spirit to make room for God to fill us with the good air. Is anyone controlling your peace by their choices; or any circumstance stealing your joy?
Ask God for understanding, because God loves you enough to be bringing this too you. God wants you to see how much His Love is for you, so that you can build yourself up in your most Holy Faith, that if we get this, we will never be the same!
Like a Test-Tube, measures what you have in your heart / spirit. What is good? What is harming to your soul? Our soul is our mind, will and emotions. Are you willing to take a journey with Jesus and replace your mind, with the Mind of Christ & replace your will with God’s Will, & replace your emotions … with God’s, which is JOY!
The rewards of following Christ are spectacular! Yet to comprehend the blessings, we 1st must decrease in Self to increase in Christ! If we get this, we will never be the same! We can grow to where we notice, that gradually, these things that used to smack us down 100%, really have no effect on our spiritual peace and joy anymore. I encourage you to begin a journal; and draw a picture of a Test-Tube. Mark the measurements & perhaps you will see in a month, what was @ 100% is now only 85%. Journal how this makes you feel.
Will you invite Jesus in your heart to begin this journey with God? If you do, you will never be the same. I hope this is a blessing to you day! Love in Christ, Karen

Words to a New Attitude Will Change Your Life With God, by Karen Rowe
As a fawn is protected, a follower of Christ has benefits!
“Sticks & Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Do you apply this?
Words are more powerful than a stick or a stone … Words cut right to our spirit & have the power to heal & encourage; or harm & tear down.
Faith! Which words do you speak? Little things don’t matter alot; they are every thing!
EVEN Satan NEEDS TRUTH to mix up lies & confuse; his motive is to steal, kill & destroy your LIFE.
Jesus IS Truth! Jesus frees us from condemnation; and the Truth is: God loves you & all He has made. God is passionate FOR you. He loves you as a Father helps & waits for us to grow up to understand!
Words are powerful enough to be a blessing to us!!! Jesus faced 3 Major Tempations we face in this world: Go against God to feed our hungers NOW, test God’s love for us to see if God will go against His Word to follow us to our own demise. And 3, to choose self & the easiest way possible to get all we want …
Jesus repelled Satan by the spoken word of God! Because He is the Word!!! Think about who you are to God! God spoke a universe into existence to be our nursery!
And God wove you together in your mother’s womb!!! Yes! God loves you!!! In the beginning was the Word & the Word was with God & the Word was God! And Jesus is the Word whom has died, whom has been resurrected from the dead & whom lives FOREVERMORE … And, Jesus did all this for you & me!
We all need Jesus! Satan twists God’s Word.
We CAN go beyond the natural TO the spiritual & Change the way we THINK! As we adjust our thinking to the Word of God, The Truth Changes how we feel about everything & everyone!!!
Jesus said, don’t be surprised / think it to be strange…Be aware & do NOT LET your spirit be controled / troubled!
We can’t afford to miss hearing God’s Holy Word! Seek God 1st & all these things will be added for you!
God does these things for us!!!
The weapons formed against us are words…& people use words recklessly. But God will give you a method (The Holy Word) to resist the devil & he will flee.
But one more thing must happen along this blessed path with God! Forgiveness.
TILL NEXT TIME!
TILL NEXT TIME! “GRACE AND PEACE TO YOU FROM GOD OUR FATHER AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.”
The address in the Bible is found in 2 Corinthians 1:2, and this is the NIV today.
LOVE IN CHRIST,
Instagram4629 “Writing the Story of my life with every choice Jesus helps me to make and learning how to be blessed and live life large, happy and free. I care.”
Personal Motto: “I don’t have it all figured out, BUT GOD DOES … Follow JESUS!”
Thank you Jesus! Personal Revelation Life Verse: 1 John 4:16
16 And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.
