On The Other Side: Written By Andrea Saylor For Gearl Fields

I bet heaven is so sweet with you there. I bet you smile and laugh all the time and I bet you always have a good time.

I bet your hair is red and as bright as the sun in the sky and that your eyes glow with happiness as the days go by.

I bet your sight is clear and that you can see everything that beautifully surrounds you continuously.

I also bet that your waiting for us all on the other side , waiting to hold us and congratulate us on our home in the sky.

I miss you greatly and your memory remains in my mind and heart for always. But I'll see you soon on the other side when my time comes and I can join you in the sky.

Potato Chips: Giving And Receiving

Sometimes in life we have things that we think we can't live without even though God doesn't want us to have them. But as we all know, going against God's will gets you no where. I'd like to share this testimony with you in hopes that it can give you some understanding and guidance.:
The other night my mother and I were at disagreement on some things in the bible. We just couldn't see eye to eye. However I had not researched those specific things in the bible therfore I had no knowledge of what I was saying.
We left my mom's after staying a few days and returned home. I just couldn't sleep because I just didn't understand what her and I were talking about. So I got my phone and opened my bible app and read the verses about what we were talking about and she was right. I called her and apologized and then got a huge bag out and long story short; I began packing my pants, nail polishes, hair dye, and colorful make up into the bag because in the bible it speaks that these things are sinful for a woman to wear. (If you believe differently that's fine and that's between you and God so please don't be angered by the post.)
Anyways the purpose of telling you all that is this... the night before I had been thinking how badly I wanted some potatoe chips but we didn't have enough money for them. After giving up my things for the Lord the next day we got a food box and inside was potatoe chips and my favorite chip dip.
This sounds silly but it's such a good example of what God can do for you. As simple as this was God still gave it to me because I gave up something for him.
Sometimes we have to push things aside for God in order for him to bless us abundantly.
Sometimes it's better to give than receive is such a true statement because the things we give to God he will reward us for 10 times better.
So if your struggling and feel like you just can't get through to God then think about things in your life, maybe there is something that God wants to replace with something better.
Always remember, Jesus loves you yesterday, today and forever and prayer always changes things!

Romans 12:1-21 KJV

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 

For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 

Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; 

Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. 

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; 

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; 

Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. 

Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 

Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 

Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

John 3:30-31 KJV

He must increase, but I must decrease.  He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

John 3:16-17 KJV

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.   
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Be Happy, Be You

Sometimes it's hard to be yourself and to be happy with who you are. We often have to remind ourselves of how important we truly are.
God made you just the way he wants you to be. Every flaw has a purpose and every ounce of you is beautiful.
Be proud of who God made you. Don't let the world make you become something that you are not.
Be happy, be you!

Being Different

Everyone is different. No one is the same. But thanks to society some differences are often criticized. Think about this, what is wrong with being overweight, skinny, short, tall, shy, or even having anxiety? Truth? Nothing is wrong with it.
Now days kids are raised to think that being different is wrong. I have been disliked all my life and even now because I am different. And while the discrimination hurts it also teaches me that this world is not my home.
God made you the way you are and what right does a human have to pass judgement on one of God's masterpieces? They have no right!
Don't hate yourself. Instead be proud of who you are. You have a purpose. If others don't like you then thats something they need to take up with God because to God you are perfect.
God makes no mistakes, always remember that.
