Be Deed & Truth, Not Words… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , on June 22, 2021 by paulthepoke

Words are powerful, but your actions are truth. Talk is only talk if you aren’t showing your words are true. Be the truth.

Be honorable in all you do. Treat others with respect & be fair always. By doing this, they will see you as trustworthy & that’s what people need to see & feel from you. That’s what you want from others as well. Treat them as you want treated.

1 John 3:18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed & in truth.

2 Corinthians 8:21 For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also the sight of man.

Have a truthful and honorable filled day my friends!!!

Memorial Day, 2021… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , , , , on May 31, 2021 by paulthepoke

Please take the time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Please take the time to give gratitude to our active duty military personnel who protect our freedom. Enjoy time with your family and friends during this Memorial Day Holiday weekend.

The older I get the more I realize that family is everything. I regret time not spent with them. Cousins were my first best friends & are the ones that will always have my back. There’s a special bond & love in family that honestly can’t be duplicated. Family is love!

Tomorrow is never guaranteed, so don’t live like it is. Live each day as if it’s your last. Choose to spend your time wisely, doing what’s good & loving others. God gave us this life for a purpose, live with that purpose.

1 Corinthians 13:7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Ephesians 5:16 Make the best use of time, because the days are evil.

James 4:14 Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time & then vanishes.

Let us not forget the freedom we have in Jesus. He sacrificed Himself for all of humanity.

Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.”

Have a purpose filled Memorial Day Weekend my friends!!!

Grace To Those Who Hear… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , , on May 25, 2021 by paulthepoke

Why do we believe the words of those that hurt us, but can’t see what those that love us see in ourselves?

If you think those that are hurting you love you, you need to understand that they don’t know how to love. That’s not love or truth.  So many lack confidence in themselves because they only hear about the negative that some may see.

Focus on the good in others & build them up. Believe those that are building you up & try to see just a portion of what they see. Praise the positive you see in them. Give them confidence. Confidence is appealing.

Be confident in yourself…

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those that hear.

Have a grace giving week my friends!!!

Ask God Into Your Heart… Paul Beverly

We all get conflicted about what’s in our heart at times. Pray about it, & then don’t be afraid to follow your heart. God will guide you to His fulfillment. Be confident in where it leads you. If it is truly what God has put in your heart, you will be rewarded greatly. Do what is in your heart. The Lord has put it there. Nobody ever got their reward by standing still. Have hope & move forward. Go for it, because God’s got your back.

Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Have a great and rewarding week my friends!!!

Love More, Judge Less… Paul Beverly

Passing judgement on a person’s sin, makes you an equal sinner. God didn’t make a list of sins & say one was worse than the other. He did however say that the greatest thing we can do is love. Let’s all love more…

James 4:12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it.

Matthew 22:37-40 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” -Jesus

Have a loving week my friends!!!

Peace, Peace, Peace… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , on April 7, 2021 by paulthepoke

Having peace in your life & peace with others is the best feeling. You can’t have peace in you’re life if you are at odds with someone. Building others up, instead of tearing them down will bring peace. Why would we not want good for everyone?

Romans 14:19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace & mutual upbuilding.

Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.

Have a peace making week my friends!!!

Too often I see others lose patience with God, believing He must be against them & not hearing their prayers. I also once thought this way. He hears every prayer, but our prayers may not be a part of His plan. I believe He wants us to stop trying to follow our own plan & seek Him & His plan.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient towards you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Have a blessed week my friends!!!

Enjoy the Silence… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , on February 23, 2021 by paulthepoke

When some people see you trying to better yourself & starting to do well in life, they will try to bring you down out of jealousy & bitterness. Don’t let them, keep doing the right thing & they will be seen for who they are. When you are bettering yourself, not everyone is meant to stay in your life & that’s okay. You can’t swim with dead weight dragging you down. Let go & move on.

1 Peter 2:15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the foolish talk of ignorant people.

Have a silencing week my friends!!!

Forgive… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , on February 10, 2021 by paulthepoke

Forgiving someone was an area I struggled in a lot at one time & still can if I’m not careful. You’re not forgiving them just for their sake, but for your peace. Forgiving allows you to let go & move on. Don’t stay stuck in bitterness.

Mark 11:25 And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgive one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Have a forgiving weekend my friends!!!

Gossip… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , on January 26, 2021 by paulthepoke

Rather we mean to or not, most of us fail when it comes to gossip & rumors. But some thrive on it sadly. They think they can’t be happy unless they are trying to hurt others. The truth is they are miserable & want others miserable too. If they are gossiping to you about others, most likely they are gossiping about you to others as well. Avoid gossip & those that love to gossip. Untruth can destroy people. Misery loves company.

Proverbs 16:28 A dishonest man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends.

Proverbs 20:19 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.

Have a gossip free week my friends!!!
