Our Daily Bread…Featuring Paul Beverly

There is never a good time to be selfish, but especially this time of year when others are struggling with depression & loneliness. This can be the loneliest time of year for some. Every small act of kindness can change someone’s day. It is a busy time of the year. It takes little effort or time to brighten someone’s day & make them feel that they matter. Be a blessing to others.

Philippians 2:3-4 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Luke 6:31 And as you wish others would do to you, do also to them.

Have an unselfish week my friends!!!

be yourself

I know it’s important to have a good reputation, but we sometimes worry so much about it that we aren’t truly being ourselves. Worrying what others think can keep you from being yourself. It keeps you from being confident. It keeps you from being happy. The quote “What God knows about me is more important than what others think about me” is something we all need to remember. You can’t be happy if you are constantly trying to protect your image or reputation. Just be you & the right ones will love you for it.

Proverbs 29:25 It is dangerous to be concerned with what others think of you, but if you trust the Lord, you are safe.

Have a confident weekend my friends!!!

Be thankful everyday. Show your thankfulness to others with appreciation for them. Give thanks to God every day for what he provides for you. Count your blessings instead of your wants. A thankful heart is a happy heart.

Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts , to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Colossians 4:2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.

Philemon 1:4 I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers.

Have a thankful Thursday my friends!!!

Wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving holiday!!!

Be the first. The first to say hello. The first to say thank you. The first to say I’m sorry. The first to say you’re wrong. The first to help. The first to show kindness. The first to say I love you. The first to thank a veteran.

Thank you to those that served, past & present! We are able to live in the greatest country in the world because of your sacrifices!!

Ephesians 1:16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.

Have a thankful Veterans Day my friends!!!

SutherlandSpgsGot a much needed visit with a good friend last night & we were talking about how it can seem the world wants to keep knocking us down. It’s a fact that there are people that won’t want you to succeed. It’s a fact that at times we will feel broken & suffering. There were many that didn’t want to see Jesus succeed & our suffering is nothing like His. He paid the ultimate price & guest what? He succeeded. With all the hate he faced, he still showed nothing but love. He died for our sins so we would know God’s love. We are saved by the blood of Christ. No matter how bad it seems, we have a lot to be thankful for. We can’t control what others do against us, but we can control how we let it affect us. React with love & know God has great plans for you. Your reward is coming.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave his one & only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not parish but have eternal life.

Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.

Please pray for the body of Jesus Christ in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The church is located about 30 miles south east of San Antonio. This is the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs. Twenty six (26) people have been killed. Twenty four (24) others have been wounded by a gunman. The shooter is dead. For details of the tragedy, see the link below.

confidenceSelf confidence isn’t always easy for some of us. Surround yourself with those that build you up & speak positivity into your life. Have faith in how God made you, he doesn’t make mistakes. Confidence is attractive.

Do not let anyone or anything, in negativity, to determine your value. If they aren’t lifting you up, they don’t know your worth. Those that are selfish & insecure will try to keep you down. Do not allow it. Surround yourself with those that lift you up. Know your worth.

Psalm 139:13-14 For you formed my inward parts; you knotted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

Luke 12:6-7 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Hebrews 10:35 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control.

Have a confident weekend my friends!!!

zip lipsSadly, there will be those that want hurt you & destroy your reputation. It could be out of jealousy, bitterness, hatred, or whatever reason. For lack of a better word, it sucks. But not everybody will be on your side or a true friend. Not much you can do about it except avoid people like this & not let them get to you. There are a lot of people that like to spread rumors. My guess it is to make themselves feel better about their crappy lives. You can bet that if a person is talking crap about others to you, they are most likely talking crap to others about you as well. If you don’t know facts, keep your mouth shut. It will come back to bite you.

Exodus 23:1 “You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wick man to be a malicious witness.”

Proverbs 26:20 For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisper, quarreling ceases.

Have a gossip free weekend my friends!!!
