Moving Forward… Paul Beverly

If you keep looking back, you’ll keep yourself from moving forward to the great things God has planned for you. In order to get to where you’re supposed to be, you have to leave where you’ve been. Do not stay stuck in what is holding you back. Most often, that’s something on the inside. The windshield is bigger than the rear view mirror for a reason. Step out in faith…

Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Isaiah 65:17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.”

Have an eye opening week my friends!!!

Children Are a Gift… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , on August 12, 2021 by paulthepoke

Children are a gift & we are responsible for providing for them. They didn’t ask for this life, so we should put them first. Make them feel wanted & important, because they are. Give them the love & tools to needed to lead a good & happy life.

Be the parent that you want your kids to be. Be the friend that you want to have. Be the change that you want to see. Be the love that you want to receive. Lead by example. Sew what you want back.

2 Corinthians 12:14 Here for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be a burden, for I seek not what is yours but you. For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children.

I get a lot of praise for being a single dad & it does make me feel good, but why don’t single mothers get a lot of praise? It’s like it’s expected of them so it’s not a big deal. It really is a big deal because it isn’t easy. I couldn’t do it without help.

Last school year my cousin worked where Aria went to school thankfully & was able to take Aria with him when I couldn’t be there to pick her up on time. He took her to my parents who are priceless for us. Other times, friends would keep Aria for me till I got home. Those two gals are golden!

The thing is, kids don’t ask to be brought into this world so all parents need to make life good for them. I do appreciate the praise, but I’m doing just what I’m supposed to do. Don’t take single moms for granted, they are pretty badass!

Do the Right Thing… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , on July 27, 2021 by paulthepoke

Doing what’s right… We all know the difference between right & wrong usually. So why do we choose to do what’s not right at times? Is it because of selfishness? Greed? That we don’t care? Doing the right thing may not always be easy, but it will be rewarded. Doing the right thing will bring peace to your heart.

James 4:17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

2 Chronicles 15:7 But you take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.

Have a do the right thing week my friends!!!

Be careful of who you allow into your life. Those you surround yourself with, are who you most become like. Choose wisely so that you surround yourself with those that lift you up & are good for you. Good friends are priceless.

Surround yourself with who & what are good for you. Be the type of person that others what to be around because they know you are good for them. Good attracts good.

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Proverbs 13:20 Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools suffers harm.

Have a wise and sharpening week my friends!!!

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!!!

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!!!
