Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 

I John 5:1-4 (KJV)

After a difficult week, (dealing with the loss of a good friend, Christian Franco) its great to spend time with family and appreciate the moments we share together.

There always seem to be some-kind of drama, family crisis or difficult situation. Every day we face negative people, situations or internal feelings. Can I just say; ENJOY the people in your life, Be GRATEFUL for the people in your life, LOVE the people in your life! Every moment COUNTS. Be a PROUD papa, uncle, son (or mama, aunt, daughter)! ENCOURAGE people you encounter, friends and family. RECEIVE encouragement, complements and grace from those who love you. Above all else, PRAY for the people you LOVE, APPRECIATE, ENCOUNTER and yes, those that IRRITATE you... that's our mission. It's our responsibility.

There always seem to be some-kind of drama, family crisis or difficult situation. Every day we face negative people, situations or internal feelings.

Can I just say;
ENJOY the people in your life, Be GRATEFUL for the people in your life, LOVE the people in your life! Every moment COUNTS. Be a PROUD papa, uncle, son (or mama, aunt, daughter)! ENCOURAGE people you encounter, friends and family. RECEIVE encouragement, complements and grace from those who love you. Above all else, PRAY for the people you LOVE, APPRECIATE, ENCOUNTER and yes, those that IRRITATE you… that’s our mission. It’s our responsibility. This week – I’ve learned and experienced this great lesson & commandment to be true. I don’t ever want to leave a situation where I can encourage someone who is hurting, stressed or at a loss for expression. Let me show Christ’s Love through my life and my words.
We mustn’t allow the cares of this life or of our families keep us from being the light in this darkened world. The commandment remains the same LOVE, and if we love we will be the light to the saved, or unsaved alike. Unfortunately, many times it’s easier to love strangers in crisis than our own family or brothers in Christ. Don’t let any moment pass you by without appreciating those you influence or encounter daily. He’s given us the grace, ability and power to do what must be done, say what must be said and Love the way HE Loves.
Be Encouraged
