Not like others

Luke 6:33  ”And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.” 

Luke 6:35 “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.”

Matthew 5:44  ”But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”

"To return good for good is natural, to return good for evil is supernatural." - Unknown

Basically you reblog this, and your followers know that you care and that they can message you about anything anon or not and you will reply back or at least look at their message.

"Live the life you’d be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I’m going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I’m wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they’re living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be … Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it."

Being open hearted is hard when people around you are closed.

I am in a space of great adventure and expansiveness. Some people around me are throwing stones. Stones of anger. Fear. Jealousy.

It made me want to be closed.

But then I realized…. I really just want to walk away from all of that…

Wise words Dana. We need to proactively manage the toxic people who cross our paths and try to be as cancerous cells to our body, soul and spirit. It takes energy and discipline on our part to be proactively managing our lives, our well-being and our happiness but we must not shirk this responsibility. [[[[Dana]]]]

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8, NKJV.
We serve such a loving, gracious and generous God. He loves you so much that there isn’t anything He wouldn’t do in order to have a relationship with you. The Bible tells us that sin separates man from God. But God doesn’t want to be separated from us. That’s why He sent His Son into the world—to pay the penalty for sin so that you and I could live in eternity with Him.
So many people today think they have to earn their way to heaven. They think they have to be “good enough” or “do the right thing” in order to be accepted by God. They want to “clean up” before they come to Him. But notice what today’s verse says—salvation is a gift from God. You can’t earn a gift. You don’t pay for it. You can only receive it by faith. If you’ve never made Jesus the Lord of your life, I encourage you to receive this free gift. Let Him fill you with His eternal peace and joy so that you can live the abundant life He has for you.
