These Three

Faith, family, and friends. These three. Community. These three keep you in community. These three strengthen you and when they are positive, they are uplifting. Your family and friends should be encouraging you and your faith walk. If not, somethng may be wrong. You see, sometimes you may have friends or family that are not positive. You should politely place them outside of your inner circle. Sometimes we link up with those that mean us no good, and constantly deplete our energy. You must get them out of your inner circle. Not sure how? Let Holy Spirit show you how to "walk away' from those that deplete your energy. And let Holy Spirit show you who is to be in your inner circle. 

Faith, family, friends. Let's look at that faith thing. You see, sometimes we have faith in the wrong person, place, or thing. And that causes us great harm. Have faith in God and in His promises to you.  Too often we blame God for our misplaced judgment, and that ain't cool. It is wasted energy, and it sets us off down a rabbit trail of misplaced trust; and the enemy loves that. You see, any distraction from Truth is a lie and will be used against you by the enemy. Afraid? Scripture says it takes faith the size of a mustard seed. "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you" (Matt. 17:20 NIV). Wow. If that is all it takes, look at what faith that is larger than a mustard seed can do. Oh how God loves us. But your faith must be in God. 

Faith, family, friends. Faith in God, loving family, supporting friends. Yes, it is possible to have a strong community. I know it to be so because Holy Spirit showed me this earlier. These three- it is possible to have because of the big Three- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Yes, you can. Yes they will. Yes, to your life! enough for now.
