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!!!

Love… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , on January 19, 2021 by paulthepoke

It saddens me when I see individuals or “hate groups” blame God for evil done in this world. God is love & I imagine all the evil saddens Him as well. There is no greater love than the love that God has for us. Such a great love that He gave His only Son to die for our sins. God wants us to overcome evil with love. Share love today.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one & only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Have a loving & good week my friends!!!

Our Response… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2021 by paulthepoke

We can’t control how others treat us, but we can control how we react. It’s easy to want to get even with someone who has wronged you, but God says to leave it to him to avenge evil. Getting revenge may seem like a temporary good feeling, but in the long run it will leave you feeling sick inside. Be at peace & focus on those that love you & lift you up. Don’t allow wrong doers space in your head.

Romans 12:17 Do not repay evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.

1 Peter 3:9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Have a blessed week my friends!!!

Eliminate the Negative… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , on December 1, 2020 by paulthepoke

Do not focus on the negative in your life. Don’t let your struggles keep you in bondage. Make your struggles turn you into a better & stronger person. Focus on all the good you have, on all the good that’s to come. Keep your thoughts free from negative thinking.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Have a positive week my friends!!!

I Am No Better… Paul Beverly

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly 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

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Paul Beverly with tags , , , , , , , on November 2, 2020 by paulthepoke

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

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