1. When you say “NO” they don’t switch up.
2. If you “WIN FIRST” they don’t switch up!
3. When you tell them the “TRUTH” they don’t switch up.
4. When they get new friends or a “NEW BOO” they don’t switch up!!
5. When you challenge them to do better, they don’t switch up but thank you for the EXTRA PUSH!!
TYPE “AMEN” IF THIS BLESSED YOU!!!!!!!
Strong and healthy relationships will add years to your life!!
“Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”
Proverbs 27:5-6 KJV
Don’t Switch Up…OnPurpose!!
Matthew 20:8 ~ “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’
Do you ever witness some pretty crappy people receiving some pretty hefty blessings and think: “man that just doesn’t seem right?” I know I do and I see some horrible things happen to the greatest people ever. I don’t have a clear answer but I know counting someone else’s blessings and judging their worthiness to receive them is not our job. Whenever we begin to compare ourselves to others we will always fall short. That thinking is a distraction and is often comparing apples to oranges. Find the greatness in your own fruit. Our walks, experiences… there is promise and purpose and you may just miss yours caught up in what the Joneses got going on. And don’t forget some people are selling their souls for their gain, is it worth your soul? #truestory
In simple terms…Price is the amount a customer pays for that product or service. The difference between the price that is paid and the cost that is incurred is the profit the business makes when the item sells. If a customer pays $10 for an item that costs the company $5 to produce and sell, the company makes a $5 profit (none of my business.)
Matthew 16:26 (ASV) For what shall a man be profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and forfeit his life? or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?
Think about it…Pray this prayer with me:
Precious Father, Lord Jesus, Wonderful Holy Spirit,
May all my labors for you be done to bless your name and glorify you before the world.
May my times of poverty be embraced as a time for you to teach me about giving thanks and humility during in my poverty. May my times of plenty be embraced by me as a time for you to teach me about giving thanks and humility in my plenty. In the name of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit who lives within me and touches me,

Protecting my soul…OnPurpose!
(Galatians 5:22-23) But the fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
I once heard a preacher say, “you can tell the root, by it’s fruit.” What is inside (the heart) will show on the outside (by our actions).
These character traits are the by-product of our full acceptance of God through Christ and the indwelling of His Holy Spirit.
These are the qualities of Jesus! Now, some may try to force themselves to practice or pretend these qualities, but we can’t “truly” “have” them until we “truly” let Him “have” us.
By letting Him have total control, by letting His Spirit live in us, He bestows us with these spiritual gifts. These are the qualities in which we utilize to fulfill the true intended purpose of the law — to love God and our neighbors while being obedient to His will.
God’s gifts are abundant and overflowing to His Children.
Are you one of His own?
I AM…On purpose
“Heavenly Father, make my heart one with You and Your Son, so that I may bear fruit that brings you glory and honor.”
