Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, we must trust that through Him we can overcome anything at all! We are overcomers! We have been gifted with faith! He gives us our measure of faith that will enable us to win our battles! He keeps us in perfect peace. He lets us continue on in the face of all adversity, and although we may stumble, He never lets us fall. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, and He will deliver you to your promised land, the land that He promised to our forefathers! Let Him live through you, because through His eyes, everything looks different. Jesus knows all your outcomes from all your experiences, and He knows that your futures are good. If there were no more good things in your future, He would have taken you home. And me too! That's why we must continue on towards the prize, so we can collect our crowns at the end of our race, and hear those precious words from our Lord, "Well done good and faithful servants." PRAISE HIM!
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Glory to God for these words, Amen.

Hi and thanks for your critique. I welcome your comments be they helpful. I would like you to know something: I have no interest in gaining popularity - only to put pen to paper and reveal what God has placed on my heart. I have no idea what I'm going to write about - simply put - I write as the Spirit leads... God bless my readership... Love to all...
Although we can do great things for Christ we cannot do everything.
For example Give my brother a hammer and some nails and lumber and he can build a fantastic house.
Give me a hammer, nail and some numbers and you better have an ambulance waiting.
Give my brother a pen and paper and he can not write a simple letter.
Give me a pen and paper and I do write beautiful poems.
We must not believe God will do everything for us.
I agree with what you are saying but we must not put unreasonable expectations on new believers.
God bless you.
