A heart of gratitude changes your attitude

A rich mans wealth is his strong city; the poverty of the fool is their ruin. Proverbs 10:15

You can think all you want that you may be wise. However the truth of the matter is that we are all fools. It is through time that the Lord will teach you to be wise and even then without the willingness of understanding of gaining the knowledge you still are a fool.

And I applied to my heart to seek and to search out by Wisdom all that is done under heaven. It is an unhappy business that GOD has given to the children of man to be busy with. Ecclesiastes 1:13

This is true no?!? It is because you want to teach your children to do something different yet your doing the very thing they are doing. You want to discipline them because they did wrong. However in what sight did they do wrong. If they are cussing and showing hatred, arguing, fighting, etc…. and your doing the same in front of them then who really is wrong? Truly how can you discipline them?

Not only does your life keep you busy however so does your children’s. Your truly fighting a no win situation for you or the ones your are disciplining.

How do you do something different if you don’t know how to do it? You find a way to control your anger, addiction or whatever it is to be a better person for yourself and your kids.

I was a horrible mother I did everything that I am telling you not to do. If I had to do it all over again I would.

Thank GOD for the serenity prayer I was able to get past and forgive myself for doing what I did in front of my kids.

It’s is through GOD you too can do the same.

Having a heart of gratitude changes your attitude should be a daily affirmation because trust there is someone out there that had it worse than you. Why I say that and if you don’t believe me then look on your street corners, under bridges, watch the news and when you see someone’s family going through death of a loved one or kids dying because their country is at war or the natural disasters. There are so many thing to take into consideration. With that said you have a lot of things to be grateful for.

Much Love,

Melissa Giles

Where is your faith?

He put another parable before them saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man and took and sowed in his field. Matthew 13:31

It is no secret this parable. Right? We all know that it only takes a mustard seed to have faith. We are taught that if you just have that tiny mustard seed and just believe that Jesus came and was raised from the dead in 3 days that we are saved. You repent of your sins and all things are good. You just have to keep repenting. Right?

As it is, I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved into repenting. For you left a Godly grief, so that you suffered no loss through us. 2 Corinthians 7:9

You get sick and tired of being sick and tired and your at a breaking point of Life. There are 3 things that people do.

1. Blame GOD; then go to GOD confess of Sin through repentance be saved because that is what we are taught.

2. Start blaming other people, not taking responsibility for the things they do after giving their lives to GOD.

3. They continue to live an ungodly life thinking that because they repented and it’s ok.

Why do people do this? Because you have not been taught the whole story of the Mustard seed. Or perhaps you have I don’t know. What I am saying is I would like to give you a different perspective about this seed the seed of Faith.

It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches. Matthew 13:32

Not only does this set the scene of being strong you can grow in your faith however even the animals love you. With this all animals become your friend. I know for some your thinking oh whatever is this girl talking about. It’s the Spiritual link between Man and beast.

Consecrate to me all the first born. Whatever is the first to open the womb among the people of Israel, let both of man and beast be mine. Exodus 13:2

Why do I refer back to this verse? It is to understand that from the beginning of time Everything belongs to GOD. When he speaks about Israel it is us he speaks of. We are all descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and of Jacob.

“Keep in mind; when using the word OF in this writing it is speaking of a state of being.”

From generation to generation life happens right? Do you not think that life did not happen with the three named above. When you think about it life happened with Adam and Eve. In reality with GOD.

For all things come from GOD. In my Spiritual Journey GOD has taught me Faith is the foundation of the world, earth and universe whatever it is to you. . Very little find it and it is hard to obtain. Especially when you were taught that a tiny mustard seed of faith is going to be sufficient enough to have the life you want through repenting. Which in fact maybe be true so you think for some people. GOD is blessing you and keeping true to his Promises because of your repentance because you are doing the work. You are overcoming that addiction, overcoming a tribulation or tragedy.

Whatever it is for you. This is the importance and the uniqueness of GODS Love for us, and the relationship that is build between you and him.

This is another reason why what you think is not wrong nor right and what I think is not wrong nor right because of the different relationship we each have with GOD.

For those whom he knew he also predestined to be confirmed to the image of his son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Romans 8:29

You must start realizing the importance of why things happen to you. Your circumstances is what make who you are. Right?

As you continue down this road of healing through the Lord Jesus Christ and you start to trust him. Your trusting him to keep you Sober, from sex addiction, gambling, from whatever it is that you went through or continue to go through. That tiny mustard seed is growing. Inch by inch it is growing you are getting stronger.

You don’t look at it that way because that’s not how you were taught. Only that if you repent of your sins that you are saved.

In reality your trust in Jesus is growing because things are getting better. You have a testimony to give about the blessings, the peace that you feel. The calmness of your soul.

As time goes on GOD is showing you more however you don’t see it. You don’t see it because it’s not what you are taught.

With that said, it is through the 10 Commandments, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes I am going to teach you just that.

For now think about how that tiny mustard seed can fully bloom.

And he said to the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and he had spit on his eyes and laid hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?”

And he looked up and said, “I see people walking, but they look like trees, walk-ing.” Mark 8:24

Now, omgosh isn’t that powerful to know that we are all trees. You and I have deep rooted seeds of past generations that when taught right can be turned into faith.

Then Jesus laid hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Mark 8:25

GOD GAVE US EYES TO SEE AND EARS TO HEAR.

Much love my friends.

My name is Melissa and I am an imitator of GOD.

Gain wisdom

For April Fifth 2019. GOD says in the first 5 days of Proverbs meaning the first five chapters he is consistent in commanding that you obey his laws, gain knowledge and understanding so that you may gain Wisdom.

In today’s reading GOD is talking about the adulteress women or man. He speaks of both. Really watch out for either one.

First off there is the 7th commandment of the 10 Commandments do not commit adultery. Secondly he sets the scene from the beginning in Proverbs about committing Adultery he speaks of being envious, jealousy, which is 8 and 9 of the 10 Commandments. He sets the scene that you need to look for his guidance through the Proverbs so that you may gain knowledge and understanding.

With that being said today is pen pointing the commandment of commuting adultery. When there is another person that is coming between you and your relationship that you must take a look at the situation and the motive of the person that is coming into play.

Perhaps their intention is for personal gain instead of what you may be thinking. He teaches that we should be aware of that person, man or woman.

Nobody is to do anything for personal gain. He talks about loving the women of your youth. Your first love, that he was the one that placed this person in your life. Love her, keep her close to your heart.

Pray for peace and understanding and if there are problems pray for guidance. GOD will fix the problem.

For those of us that are waiting for that person to come by GODS grace they will come. Without a doubt. Stay true to yourself and that other person that you are waiting for.

Please feel free to leave a comment and questions that you may have.

Much Love My Friends,

Melissa Giles

PS if you haven’t seen the videos from previous days please watch them on my Facebook page.

Proverbs April Fourth

To gain wisdom us to gain understanding. When you gain wisdom you look successful not only to man but to GOD.

In the first four chapters Proverbs really outlines Life by gaining Wisdom and love for your parents. It talks about Jealousy, being envious, all types of emotions that turn into human behavior and being caught up in Worldly thinking.

As said before the Proverbs are to get us to realize how we are thinking and to give us the knowledge of the 10 Commandments and realize that our way of thinking is not of the character of GOD.

With that said how can we turn to true wisdom without the knowledge of how to gain it.

With that said please go back and watch the videos for the first 4 days so that you may understand the foundation of Wisdom.

I remember when GOD started showing up in my life when I was feeling really down about my parents. I have a mom and dad. Both I love very dearly. However my mom hasn’t always loved me. My mom is different than my dad.

Without my dad who knows where I’d be. With that said I do not have a close relationship with neither one of them. I wish too however I don’t.

At the beginning of this Spiritual Journey GOD started showing me that he is my parent. He is both my parents. He loves me unconditionally as my parents do not.

He also taught me to forgive my dad along the journey because I love my dad with all my heart and soul and it hurts me even now that he feels the way he does about me. However I know that GOD is here for me.

He would lead me to Christian songs to calm my mind. He would show me in so many different ways that he was there.

In time I know that time will heal all relationships even with my mom.

With that said to gain knowledge and to understand wisdom is to learn how to love your GOD first and foremost and no matter what Love your parents. When it seems impossible know that nothing is impossible and the word impossible mean a reason not to try.

GOD is there for you just like he was for me.

Much Love My Friends,

Melissa Giles

Love your neighbor

But the dead are raised, even Moses showed in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the GOD of Abraham, GOD of Isaac, and the GOD of Joshua. Matthew 20:37

We are all descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Joshua. This means that their are generation after generation of garbage. This is what makes us all brothers and sisters in Christ.

He wants you to raise you from the dead and name you into what he made you to be.

My friends on this spiritual journey it has been one heck of a ride. For sure. In this blog I am going to tell you how he has raised me from the dead.

See when he has a plan for us, he will continue to make you listen. Like I said in the video this morning and if you have not seen it then please go visit my page things keep happening and you keep asking why. Why did I get a flat tire, why did I not get that raise, why this why that when in fact it you who is doing it and the Father In Heaven who is disciplining you to get your attention.

My main problem is drinking. I have a lot of addiction. Trust! I have to work on them daily. I have to remember what I’ve learned in the Bible especially Proverbs. If I don’t work on them daily then I know for sure I will fall into the whole negative thinking and old behaviors that I have had before.

It says some where in Proverbs that back sliders are fools. When I think about that when I know how much GOD has taught me, and has done for he. Yeah I’m a fool for going back not leaning on him and a fool for letting the World get the best of me. When I know different.

So your probably asking what has he done for me? Quite honestly it’s hard to share in the fear of that you won’t understand what I am saying. Fear that my experience may be inspiring to some and yet an insult to others.

The egotistical person is going to say she does not know what she’s talking back look at everything that she’s done. Why should we believe anything she says. Right?!?

Well I honestly don’t care that was one of the things that GOD taught me is to not worry about what people think. It’s not your business what they think let me take care of it.

So of course in my thinking because he has made he a character of him. I don’t say this in a bad way however who would he the fool?

The person who has changed a lot and been made the character of GOD and clearly he has stuck with her. Or the person who is quick to judge clearly what is fact in my life?

Honestly does it really matter? If it does matter who does it matter to? You? And you are who? The person with the nice car, nails done,money, money, money,and make money your priority, the husband whom who knows????? Or the wife who knows! Fighting arguing bickering, just simply unhappy! I don’t know! Really don’t care to feed my mind with ludicrous thinking.

The point is this. You judge you will be judged ten fold. Just like if you don’t forgive you will not be forgiven. All is from GOD and is his business. If you don’t believe that there is a GoD all the better. Keep reading.

Wouldn’t it be easier in this short life to understand and gain KNOWLEDGE from some one with honestly up front experience just has it’s been in my face it’s been in your too!

I had no choice on the matter! Along this Journey it has been your journey to. So with that being said I’m done ranting. Honestly I don’t know who this is directed to directly and that’s not my business either. If you read this and it resonates with you well then it’s for you. Will you change your thinking to be more open minded I don’t know and hope that GOD is more up front with you on a level that is personal between you and him.

I know for a fact that there are a lot of people that would not even dare do a lot of things I have done good or bad! Really the good things people think I’m crazy. So until you walk in my shoes or you build a personal relationship with your higher power whatever that may be. Again not my business. Then I ask very kindly to not slaughter my character because you are slaughtering GODS character.

It says in Exodus, the people went to Moses and said we are sorry not only did I sin against GOD However I sin against you.

I’m no better than anyone and neither are you.

That’s it that’s all,

Much Love,

Melissa Giles

However, if your willing to be open minded and not a simpleton just perhaps you might learn something.

Proverbs for April 3rd.

April first we learned that we should love the GOD with all our hearts and obey his Commandments. A little bit about these commandments. I mean how can we obey them if we don’t know them.

April Second, we learned about Adultery. And obeying his commandments and the meaning. Again how do we know what to obey if we don’t know what they are. At the end of the day I wrote about how it was used for his purpose in my life. Also touched on how seeing all these people it takes away jealousy, envy, judgement and so much more. If you missed this post please visit my page on Facebook.

April Third, today we talked about Wisdom. Learning how to gain it by the words that are written in Proverbs and to apply them to your life. If you don’t understand them then be mindful through out the day of what is going on around you. When reflecting on your day at the end of the day and take note of the thoughts that come to mind. Or speaking with your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend/ significant other whoever it is you talk to at the end of the day. If it’s GOD, your ahead of most people in learning.

I will say this over and over again that as you learn these you will see how it sets the scene for your day that you will become aware of your circumstances and know how to react through out the day.

Stay positive in your thinking and remember when you feel like that difficult remember a heart of gratitude changes your attitude.

Stay blessed my friends! I love you with all my heart and soul.

Please drop in the comments how this has or could benefit in your life. If you feel like sharing this with someone else by all means. We need to have more positive energy in this world.

Much Love Melissa Giles

What are you doing in your life to make it better.

My son, if you re rive my words and treasure up my commandments with you making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding. Proverbs 2:1-2

What are you doing in your life to make it better? Remember you are what you think.

Just like said above Wisdom is like water to the brain. To gain Wisdom we must learn from the God who lives in heaven who is all in the Bible.

To understand and want to gain the knowledge of Wisdom to become better. A better person is what we all long for.

As you learn the meaning of each Proverb he starts giving you insight to how your day will go. That way you can start taking action on your reaction to things that happen.

Its the situation that you let take over your emotions that causes your reaction to whatever the situation may be.

I am here to tell you. Wouldn’t it be nice to be happy instead of miserable? Wouldn’t be easier to be able to accept a situation struggle whatever it is?

Well my friends it is. It’s possible. If you continue to gain the knowledge of the things that are written in the Bible. I will gladly teach them and they have worked in my life.

It’s a hard reality! It sucks to look at your self. However during the process of change. Ooooooh man it’s like having a baby.

You forget all that happened because the end result is beautiful.

My friends I love you with all my heart and soul, and so does GOD.

Have a blessed day

Melissa Giles
