Why do I have Brothers and Sisters?

How far does your faith go?

Does God have a plan even in the midst of butt heads we call brothers and sisters?

Please read Proverbs 17:17

Yes I have some amazing Brothers and Sisters praying for me and encouraging me each and every day but a wonderful sister named Terri reminded me that EVERYTHING is a blessing if you look at it that way. Thank you for a beautiful lesson and reminder that God is in control of everything!

Vs. 17 A friend loves at all times, and a Brother is born for a time of adversity.”

Jesus taught us to Love our even our enemies. Is that possible?

All things are possible with God!!

But How? This turd is a real turd! Why did God create this Brother or Sister?

God is in control or He isnt- Yes it really is that simple and as such there are lessons in them there turds pilgrim! The beauty of these lessons other than the free fertilizer is the development of faith!

Yes faith as every time I see the lesson of Love I learn His Power to make the even the fertilizer absolutely divine.

Iron sharpens iron and if you want to see how here is a simple idea. Write it down!

When you are going through adversity no matter what the cause write down what you go through and how God taught you and His faithfulness. Then when the next opportunity comes along to smell the aroma of the porta- potty up close, you can look back and see His track record in your life and your faith will grow all the more.

Why are we told to “rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS!?” Perhaps because once we get that everything is through His divine hand like Terri pointed out- Our Faith and Love can grow!

Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!

The only one that can limit the Power, Love, Grace and Mercy of God in your life is YOU!

Array on Why the turds?

  1. MARTIN SMITH says:

    I would never think of someone for
    whom Christ died as a “turd!!” Christ
    found significance and value in
    cripples, lepers, misfits, outcasts….

    • Bob Hildreth says:

      That’s kind of the point Martin – thank you for sharing!
      We don’t Love because its a command – You cant order someone to Love you!
      But if we see the Being – every Being as the one God has created and made for this moment in our life –
      Then the Love comes through us from Him!

    Hello Bob!

    I like the spirit you have for the grace of God. Thanks for sharing.

    I don’t think SEEING someone as one God created necessarily generates love for people. I think that seeing them that way, but ultimately trusting in the power of the spirit to change our will and hearts is really what needs to happen. I’ve experience this personally where I know that should love but hate instead. Knowing is not really the key.

    I admit, I am a bit handicapped as I always seem to read what Christians write about “how-to” do this or that as a method or formula. It’s really not that. We are “hate” and God is “love”. I can’t produce true love. Thinking correctly about people is not really the key. The key is to ask for love and he will gladly provide. In his time and in his power. Certainly, understanding his view of individuals is the starting point – for sure!

    This is probably what you were saying but I figured I’d emphasize the point.

    Keep up the good work. God loves folks talking about his Son! Jesus is really the only topic of conversation.

      Hello Rich,

      Thank you for sharing. I had a big long reply all written out and then it wouldn’t go through – oh well it was supposed to.

      Thank you for your thoughts – its been my experience that Grace is different and somewhat individualized for everyone that gets it! I believe Jesus is the Only way yes absolutely but I also know that different people come from different angles and dysfunctions and as such need different lessons are needed. Grace from what I have seen comes at a person from the direction that is most probable for them to get it at the time needed most but it doesn’t mean that the person will ingest it – hope that makes sense.

      His Son paid the price and His Son did in total what we could never do – And He knows the place that we need to get to in order to see that – that’s just been my experience. It doesn’t mean people will always see it but I pray they do.

      Thank you for the encouragement!
