August 2021 Word of The Month – Keep His Commandments

Dear Lovely Reader,

I wish you a joyful day wherever you are and whenever you read this.

Just a short piece of encouragement here.

Today I was reflecting on this verse:

“But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in them. By this we know that we are in Him” – 1 John 2:5

Keeping the commands and ways of God can be very difficult in this world. We are surrounded with temptation, struggles and injustice especially this past month. Following and doing the word of God causes us to shine bright even in situations we don’t understand. Since God is love, the light we shine in our own lives and before others is pure unconditional love. You are strengthened and perfected in His love.

Continue to do good, keep praying, love your enemies, be a peacemaker, be truth, correct with love, give generously, show humility and persevere with faith. Do not be weary in well-doing (I like to add hoping too😊) because in due season you will reap (Galatians 6:9).

Those who trust in the Lord will never be put to shame – believe this! You will be rewarded.

“For God is not unjust to forget your work and labour of love you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister” – Hebrews 6:10

It is so.

Peace and every good blessing be yours in Jesus Name. Amen.

  2. Hallo Josie,

    ich kenne Dich und Deine Familie schon sehr lange. Vielleicht erinnerst Du Dich noch als Du uns in Hamburg bei Deiner Tante besucht hast.
    Ich versuche immer Deinen Blog zu lesen obwohl mein Englisch nicht so gut ist.
    Ich freue mich wie stark Du im Glauben geworden bist und das Wort, die Treue und die endlose Liebe Gottes auch bekennst und über diesen Weg auch anderen Menschen zugänglich machst.
    Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin Gottes reichhaltigen Segen.
    🙏🏾🙏🏻🙏
