    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

    The man said, 'They have left here, for I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.' ' Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan. They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them, they conspired against him to kill him. They said to one another, 'Behold, this dreamer comes. Come now ...

Finishing the Job

  • being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 WEB

    It was late Saturday night and we were both exhausted. A simple job that should have taken us a couple of hours, had now taken a couple of days, but we had chosen to honor the price that we had originally quoted them. That is one of the perks of being self-employed. As the night wore on, it was just us, God, and a lot of hard work for they soon left us the keys to the office, and went home.

    Sometimes doing the right thing hurts. That job cost us twice as much as we planned and took five times as long to complete, but we did it because it was the right thing to do. We are to do unto others, as we would have them do unto us.

    You can measure someone's character, by what it takes for them to bail out of a commitment. Make your decisions intentionally, say what you mean, and mean what you say. Our God is not flippant in His decisions, and He does not waver. Jesus endured the cross for the joy that was set before Him (Hebrews 12:2). Sometimes we have to endure.

    God who began a good work in you, will see it completely through to the end. Even when the cost is double, when it takes twice as long as planned, when things didn't turn out as expected, when it is just you, God, and a lot of hard work: He will still complete the job.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You do for me. Please give me the grace to complete the things that I have promised others. Help me grow in character and always honor my word. Help me reflect Your presence on this earth in a positive way, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Made me cry to read this devotional. Gives me strength to continue. Things are improving but I never thought we’d be waiting so long. My daughter is no longer a drug addict Hallelujah. Thank you dear God for sustaining us and I pray my grandchildren obtain what they need and I never just give up. Believe me I’ve thought of just ending it all. In Jesus name. Amen.
