My Son Or Daughter Is A !

 In today's time our children have so many temptations that can lead them in countless directions. There is the temptation to become a criminal, to do drugs, gamble or to embrace alternative lifestyles. Being that a young man or woman's first years of becoming an adult, are their most challenging years its very important that they have a sound foundation before becoming an adult. Because this is when most of them experiment or try things out on their own. Most of them stray away from their upbringing or from the way they were raised. If you are a parent and happen to be reading this blog, take comfort, because if raised properly the seeds or knowledge that were planted in them will bare fruit. In other words most children who become adults will eventually go back to their roots or upbringing when all else fails.
When I have had conversations with my own children , most of them have the same attitude or thoughts that millions of  young adults have today.That their parents ways were to restrictive or were out of touch with today's time. What half of them fail to realize is that we too were once children and we also have experimented. Not on the level they are today, but we did do our own thing in our own special way.What we hope for is that what happen to us will happen to them. That our upbringing or rearing by our parents will bring them back home as it has done for many of us.That is why its so important to take your children to church real early in life, explain to them whats right or wrong and why a man or woman should act certain way or carry themselves in a certain manner.They should also explain to them the cost or consequences of their actions and also show them real life examples what will happen to them if they embrace certain lifestyles.Parents should become their children role model, because if they don't then their children, will look from them in the outside world. My father had a famous saying that I still remember to this day, what every you plant today will grow tomorrow. Which means if you raised your children, to be God fearing children, then in time they will return to being God fearing adults. But if you don't its a strong possibility that they won't. Please give them a strong foundation built on the word of God, that they can take it with them when they become adults. That way you won't be saying in the future, Oh my, my son or daughter is a! Instead of saying that I love them and I am very proud of what they have become.
Be blessed,
Deuteronomy 22:8 When you build a new house, make a parapet around your roof so that you may not bring the guilt of bloodshed on your house if someone falls from the roof.

If You Don't Know

Out of all the things that I have learned or experienced, through the good or bad the most important thing that I have learned in my life was that there is truly a God. Without him, I know for a fact that I wouldn't have made it today to write this blog. Everything that I am or will become is because God, has allowed it to happen. Through my personal trails and tribulations I have realized that God doesn't allow anything to happen, without a purpose, reason or plan. Even though I have experienced my share of personal struggles I know that each of them were only test from God. If you happen to be reading this know this, everything that each of us will experience has already been written and is the will of God. That why one shouldn't be concerned or worry, because God our Father in Heaven always keeps a watchful eye on his children. He knows when we are hurting, he knows what we are thinking and he also knows what we need. When the world is against us God our Father and his son Jesus will always be by your side.
I know that there are some that may question God's very existence. Then there are some that would be, so bold to say that man came from other offspring's, other than God. My question would be to them, if that was so who created them and where did those life forms come from? If you don't know, then you should know that they were created by something or by someone very powerful. Who else could be so creative or more powerful other than our awesome, most powerful God? Revelation 4:11 You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created. If you ever question where you get your blessing or where you come from, know this everything you are or will become is because of God. For the word says, Exodus 4:11 The LORD said to him, "Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD?  In other words if you don't know, now you do know that you were created by the blessing of God.
May God continue to bless you always,
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Proverbs 8:30 Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
