I Am No Better… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags , , , on November 12, 2020 by paulthepoke

I am no better than the person holding the sign on the corner asking for help. I am no better than the person in the person in the public records in the paper that was arrested. I am no better than the person that is a different race than me. I am no better than the person that has a different sexual orientation than me. I am no better than anyone. Stop treating others different & like they are less just because they are different.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned & fall short of the glory of God.

Ecclesiastes 7:20 Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.

Have a non judgmental week my friends!!!

Go Vote! 2020

1 Peter 2:13-17 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

Comments from featured writer Paul Beverly.

2020 has definitely been the craziest & most trying year for all of us I’m sure. I’ve definitely struggled more than ever financially & at times emotionally.

With November here, I am focusing on the good in my life & the good to come & I’m definitely thankful. I’m believing that this year will end in a big upswing for us all & that next year will be a much better year.

Praying this election won’t separate us & that we realize we need each other more than who we want to be president.

Join me in being thankful for what we have & focusing on the good in our lives! -Paul Beverly

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, we the people of the United States have the freedom and duty to participate in the election of our leaders. We have been granted the free will to choose our leaders. Be a part of the process. Go Vote!!!

And when it is all said and done…

1 Peter 2:17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

Reaching Out… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags , on October 20, 2020 by paulthepoke

It saddens me deeply when a life is lost too soon. We never know what someone else is fighting on the inside. Be kind to everyone. Be there for them. Be someone that hopefully they can come to when they are struggling. Depression is so real & so scary. It feels like you’re alone, even if you’re around others a lot. If you are struggling, reach out to others. There are those of us that want to help & understand. Reach out to God, because he does truly heal.

Psalm 147:3 He heals the broken-hearted & binds up their wounds.

Have a healing week my friends!!!

Parenting… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags , , , on October 13, 2020 by paulthepoke

Of all the jobs I’ve had, the one constant is being a parent. It’s the one I’m most proud of & strive be better at. It’s the one that’s most important to me. It’s the one I feel I probably fail at the most, but I truly hope & pray I get better at & my children respect, appreciate, & love me for. I know there are some that for whatever reason, will not have kids, but believe me when I say there are kids that look up to you. You have a job with them too. It truly takes a village. Have a heart for children & be an example…

Psalm 103:13 Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.

Hebrews 12:7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?

Have a great week my friends!!!

Light Shine… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags , , on October 5, 2020 by paulthepoke

Do not brag or boast, but let light shine upon the good in yourself. For the good in everyone is a gift of God. Shine so bright that no darkness is seen in you. Let others see the good works of God in you.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven.

Have a bright week my friends!!!

Control… Featuring Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags , , on September 21, 2020 by paulthepoke

Control is an ugly weapon. A person will use it to make you believe that nobody will love you & care about you like they do. Then they will use it to break you down to make you believe you can’t exist without them. They need you to depend on them. Truth is, they are weak & do not know how to love. Do not allow anyone to control you. Stop thinking you can change them, you can’t. Know your worth…

Have a worthy week my friends!!!

Titus 3:10-11 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

Romans 16:17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them.

Support One Another… Paul Beverly

Jealousy, envy, & selfishness are of the same family that poison your relationships & steal your joy. Don’t allow these to consume you. Don’t allow those that show these to control your life. Always be happy for others & keep your circle full of those that are genuinely happy for you. This life isn’t a competition, want good for everyone.

James 3:16 For where jealousy & selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder & every vile practice.

Proverbs 11:23 The desire of the righteous is only good, but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

Have a selfless week my friends!!!

Relationship Deposits… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags on August 23, 2020 by paulthepoke

In any relationship, you get out of it what you put into it. You can’t keep making withdrawals without making deposits at the bank. So why would you expect a relationship to work any different? Make sure you are building your relationship up with deposits.

Luke 6:38. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.

Have a giving week my friends!!!

Faith & Prayer… Paul Beverly

With faith & prayer, everything always works out. Not always the way you think it will, but the way it’s supposed to be. Worrying & being anxious won’t change anything & only holds you back. The stress you cause yourself from being anxious is not healthy. Put your trust in God.

Proverbs 12:25. Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.

Matthew 6:27. And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to your life span?

Have a worry free week my friends!!!

Love… Featuring Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Our Daily Bread with tags on August 9, 2020 by paulthepoke

The word “love” is written in the bible 310 times in the King James Version & 551 times New International Version. Seems like it must be a pretty important action since it’s mentioned so many times in the Book of life. We definitely need more love in this world. Are you showing love enough?

Love more… Have a loving week my friends!!!
