Everyone will go through struggles in life, it’s just a fact. Nobody is immune to it. With faith & patience, everything always works out just as it’s supposed to. God has a way of bringing us out of these dark times when we trust Him. So focus on the good & wait for the great!

Our Daily Bread, Content… Paul Beverly

It’s okay to want more out of life, but don’t want out of envy. There’s happiness in being content. Faith in God & doing what he puts in your heart will bring you what you need & more. Those that live life striving for more out of envy will find nothing but gloom in the end. Find happiness where you are to get more from life.

Proverbs 14:30 A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Philippians 4:11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Have a content week my friends!!!

Our Daily Bread, Love & Pray… Paul Beverly

Posted in Our Daily Bread with tags , , , on October 7, 2018 by paulthepoke

I see the words love & pray as action verbs. I believe they are the two most mentioned action verbs in the Bible as well. That tells me our days should always involve loving & praying. Love is mentioned 310 times & pray 313 times in the King James Version. That’s a lot of times in the instruction book for life. Are you loving & praying enough?

John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

Have an awesome week my friends!!!

To Tell The Truth… Paul Beverly

Been thinking about how to word this for days now. I’ll start by saying rape is as bad as it gets & will leave lifelong scars. Most never get over it & will be affected for the rest of their lives. I have no tolerance for a man that will rape a women or child & would want to see him castrated & hung.

That being said, I don’t understand how anyone can willingly lie & try to ruin someone’s life for personal gain or political reasons. Why wait till the person is famous or has money? That’s pure evil in my books.

What if my sons were to become famous as a musician or ball player or heaven forbid a politician? What if some girl sees her chance for 15 minutes of fame & a chance to get rich? What if my boys turned them down at one time & out of scorn she chooses to ruin their lives?

It’s that easy, sadly. I’m honestly scared for my sons. I know this is a touchy subject & I’d probably want to kill anyone that wrongfully touched one of my daughters. The same is true for anyone that would willingly try to ruin one of my sons lives with lies.

Our country is a sick place with how far some of our politicians will go to have power. I could go on & on about this. But I will stop here & say that we should wish everyone well. We should always try to do the right thing & never willingly harm others. Let each other be.

Psalm 101:5 Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. Whoever has a haughty look or an arrogant heart I will not endure.

Matthew 12:36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak.

Our Daily Bread, Be Yourself… Paul Beverly

Posted in Our Daily Bread with tags , , , on September 30, 2018 by paulthepoke

Why is it hard to just be ourselves sometimes? Why do we compare ourselves with others? If you’re busy comparing yourself to others, you’re missing out on the happiness of being you. God made you just as you are & that is how & where he wants you at the time. He didn’t want you to be like somebody else or he would have made you like them. If you’re trying to be like somebody else, you’re missing out on the best you, the you that is loved by God & loved ones.

2 Corinthians 10:12 Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.
