It Hurt But It Helped

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

James 1:2-4
It Hurt But It Helped

We all will break down and fall at some point, but we need to stay calm and happy because God is on our side and he will help us with anything we need. We need to control our tone, and if we wait God will bless us.
We need to be able to control our tone. We all have probably broken down, and during that time you could’ve yelled out of anger, sadness, embarrassment, or something else. In a situation like that our words shouldn’t be negative because we need to focus on the positives of the situation. So when you fall if you know God is with you, you don’t have 1 thing to worry about. God puts us under some circumstances for a reason, and it’s not to hurt you, it is to make you stronger. It doesn’t matter who turns against you because God is right by your side, and will stick with you till the very end. Therefore if we are to fall be joyous because that proves your faith in God knowing he well help you.
We need to be patient for God’s blessings. God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us, so we don’t need to worry about breaking down and not being able to be fixed because if we pray God will help you, it just takes time. God has all power, so he knows the time when you need him the most therefore we need to be patient and wait for what he has in store for you. In that time though, keep a smile on your face and be positive because your blessing will be coming soon.
God is soon to bless you so there is no need to worry. We should control our actions and the way we think, and soon blessings are to come.

I Can Count On Jesus

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Psalms 121:1-8
I Can Count On Jesus.

We all will deal with challenges in our life, but if we stay with God he will get you through every obstacle that comes your way, so we need to look to God so he can guide you. The enemy will come for you at anytime, so we need to focus on God so he can help us with our journey.
The enemy is always on your trail. We all are on a journey to heaven, but throughout that journey you will come face to face with some of your enemies. The devil will use anything to knock you off your trail. He will use your friends, your kids, your parents, anything he thinks will distract you enough to get you away from God. But if we stay focused on God and your journey to heaven, then no matter what the devil does he can’t get you away from God. All we have to do is look up because then we will just look above all our problems.
If we focus on God, God will help guide you down your journey. Anyone that isn’t God can turn against you, so if we stick with him we don’t have to worry about getting hurt. We all will sometimes fall down or break down, but you know that voice that tells you to keep going you need to listen to it because that is God telling you to not give up. It might not seem like he helps you but everyday he prevents you from many things such as; car crashes, bee stings, gun shots, etc. God gives us everything we need such as a shelter, food, clothes, oxygen, so we can count on God’s help because you are living proof that God is going to work it out.
We can count on God because he provides you with all you need. The enemy will come for you at anytime, so we need to focus on God so he can help us with our journey.

Get Me To Jesus

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Luke 5:17-25
Get Me To Jesus.

We need to follow in Jesus’s steps because his way is the only right way, and if we follow anyone or anything besides God we’re going down the wrong path. We need to be with Jesus, and work hard to get where he is.
We need to be where he is not where he was. Jesus plays a very important role in all our lives, so we need to follow his footsteps. Because we need to get through Jesus to get to heaven than we need to follow him. We all know that sin is bad, but Jesus has no sin, he followed his father’s ever word, and never did anything wrong. If we are to do like Jesus, there is no possible way for the devil to take us down his path. But we can’t sit and do nothing we have to get up and follow God because if you’re just sitting down your not going anywhere.
We need to work to get what we want. We all want or should want to go to heaven because hell is eternal pain and no one wants that. If we want to be like Jesus we have to work just as hard as he did, and have as much faith as he did. And if we ever feel like we can’t do it then call on Jesus and he will make it better. He might not do it right away, but sooner or later he will make it better. Lets follow in Jesus footsteps.
Jesus is the only right path that we all should be walking down because that path will lead you right to heaven. We must work hard in order to be where Jesus is.

God Can Turn It Around

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Luke 7:11-16
God Can Turn It Around.

God is there when you are happy, sad, mad, anytime of the day, so if you ever need help you can always turn to him.
God can help turn your life around, and take away all the pain that is causing you harm.
God can help your turn your life around. No matter the condition or situation you in Jesus can turn it around. If you’re persistent with prater, and truly believe God will help you. God is compassionate and will help whenever you think nobody is there for you. If you’ve lost everything, your husband, your child, your house, your family, anything that had important meaning to you, God can come into your life and take away whatever is causing you harm. Let us have God take away our pain.
God can rid all our pain. In the Bible Jesus has done many miracles, and some of those miracles helped someone who felt like they couldn’t continue with living, but when he came he turned their life around, and they were as happy as could be. If you are feeling distressed, don’t worry because soon God will come and turn your life around.

Men On Fire

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Daniel 3:23
Men On Fire.

We all go through ups and downs, but God will always be there to pick you up and help you get through the pain of what your going through. God is always by your side, and is able to get you through anything.
God will always be with you. We all have or will feel like God has turned against us. That if we just did as he asked everything would be perfect, but that’s not how it’s supposed to be. God will allow the worst things to happen to you to prove that he can help you get through it. If one of your friends or family have died, if you were kicked out of your home, if you been worried about if you’ll be eating tommorow or not, if your able to read this passage right now you’ve survived what people have died from. God said it wasn’t your time to go, and helped you get through those hard times. We can’t give up on God because he hasn’t given up on you.

God Got Me

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Matthew 6:25
God Got Me.

God is with us through the ups and downs, sides to sides, twist and turns , rollercoaster after rollercoaster, so we have no need to be worried because he will meet your spiritual needs and physical needs, and will never have anything happen that doesn’t help you through your life. God will be with you wherever you go, so we just need to let God be God.
God is with you all the time. We may think we are alone at times, but wherever you are so is God. You might say he follows you when you are really following him because those old people you hung out with were probably getting you in trouble. Those old friends used to almost get you sent to jail, they would talk about you behind your back, they would have you take the blame for everything, but when you started following God your whole life turned around. You no longer have to worry about how bad your life might be because God has your back now, so we have nothing to worry about. When we have God with us, we have nothing to be scared of anything but he wouldn’t have anything happen to you that he didn’t want to happen. All of those emotions of fear, consciousness, paranoia, being worried, need to leave your body because if you let God do what he needs to do and listen to what he says I guarantee you’ll make it back home safely.
God has your back, so just let him do what he has to do. We worry about stuff all the time such as; will I’ll be able to pay the bills, am I going to keep my job, when will I be able to eat again, why do I look the way I do, but none of that stuff matters when you have God on your side. He will provide you with all you need, but sometimes with the things you want. We usually search for thing that will temporarily fix how others see us or how we feel about ourselves, but we need to search for what God has in store for US not anybody else. God has our back and would never hurt you or have anyone hurt you.We just need to let God be God because he knows what he doing, and has a purpose for doing it. God will always be with us if we decide to follow him.

I’ve Got a Lot On My Mind

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Mark 5:1-13
I’ve Got a Lot On My Mind.

People who aren’t like us are that way because Satan got to them before we could, but that doesn’t mean he can keep them because we have power, power that can get rid of the darkest demons we just need to believe. We push people away that aren’t like us, but if they have demons inside them worship is our weapon to push them away.
We tend to push people away who aren’t like us. Somebody who doesn’t speak the same language, that doesn’t have the same skin tone, we seem to just push them away because they’re not something we are used to. That’s why we need to be like Jesus because instead of pushing people not like him away he pulled them closer to help change for the better. We think people who don’t have the same religion as them are demons, but those are people just like you taking the wrong path, and that probably why they were brought to you. We Christians are on this Earth to tell the world about Jesus and convert toward the ways of the Lord, so we can’t push people away if they were meant to be pulled closer.
Our worship is our weapon. Wether we think it or not we all have power in us, but with that power comes responsibility. We can’t use all our power for ourselves because God gave it to you to help others, so we need to get out and fulfill what God has asked of you. Demons don’t worship because that is one of their, so for us their weaknesses is one of our many strength. Therefore if there is a person in need of directions towards heaven, we will direct them down the right path, and help them get to know him better along the way.
We have the power to get rid of any demons that try to come close to our neighbors and ourselves. Worship is our weapon, so let’s use it to pull people closer than to push them away.

Victory Is Mine

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

Joshua 6:1-6
Victory Is Mine.

All our blessings come from God; all the times you’ve woken up that way God, every breath you breathe is from God, every single time you go out into the world of infinite dangers but you make it through the day to come home safely and fall asleep in your bed that is God, so we need to believe in him because everything he does is for a reason. We all have our own blessings that no one can take from us, and if you believe in God you can believe he can get you through anything.
We all have our own blessings, but we can’t let nobody take it away. Our blessings have our name engraved into it, so no demon down below can take it away. God won’t let anyone take away something that truly belongs to you because it’s yours and no one else has a use for it. God has a plan for you so if he tells you something you think you can’t do, you should probably do it. Since God has all power, he can give you the power to do anything if you put your mind towards it.
You might give up, you might say, “this has nothing to do with what you wanted me to do.” But you have to believe in God because when he says to do something it probably going to happen once you do it.
We need to believe in God because he has all power. If you read the Bible God has done more than enough to prove himself that he has ALL power, and he is the only TRUE God. He has sent fire from the heavens, made bread fall down to Moses and his people in the wilderness, he set a bush on fire and didn’t let it burn up, he has done so many things for us and we don’t even know it. If we put all our faith, hope, and belief into God he will work everything out. God has all power we just can’t let the devil block our path towards righteousness.
We all need to walk the path of light not dark because we can’t see what the dark has in store for us but the path of light is a clear path where we know what we should do.
God can help you through anything because he is the one friend you can always depend on and all your blessings belong to you.

It’s Just The Beginning

From a Child Perspective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words.

1 Kings 18:44
It’s Just The Beginning.

We can’t expect God to just give us everything we want without having any type of faith, and even if you do have faith you must also have patience because things happen on TIME. God can turn something so small into the biggest thing you’ve ever seen, but you need to have faith and patience to get you through.
God has the power make anything from nothing, but we need faith. We have just started a new year, and some people thought they weren’t going to make it this far but here you are. Now there are things we want to accomplish but couldn’t do years before now but it is just the beginning so be patient. Life is like a seed, it may be small but it can grow to be as big as a Sequoiadendron Tree WITHIN TIME. Something may seem small and useless but if you nurse it, provide it with what it needs, it can grow and seem much bigger than what it used to be. If we have the faith of a small mustard seed God can make what you say is small to something as big Jupiter. You could be out in the streets doing drugs and drinking alcohol, but if you ask God to take you out of it he will, and with a snap of his fingers he can turn your life around. Next thing you know your name could be in shining lights, but it might not happen once you ask it could take days, weeks, months, and years so we need to patient.
Things happen with time and with faith, so without those there no point in asking for anything. We can do anything we put our mind to, but we need practice, patient, and faith in God. Because we can’t just do anything by saying you will and dive in head first. It takes time for things to happen, it takes practice for you to understand something, but at the same time you can’t give up in the middle of something because it gets hard. God is with us through ever storm, ever breakdown, ever fight because without him we wouldn’t be able to get through anything, and with him we will get through anything.
We need to believe God has all power because once he says he will do something he isn’t lying, he might not do it right away, but I guarantee he will with time. With faith and patience we can do anything, but also putting our faith and patience into God because he is the one with all power and can help you through anything.

I’m Down But Not Out

From a Child Prospective By Mackenzie Ware, 12 years old. ( This is what she received from Sunday message in her own words. )

Lamentations 3:16-26
I’m Down But Not Out

God will be with us through thick and thin and will love us no matter how bad we are, but we need to follow his every direction so we don’t have to experience his tough love. Don’t let God have to put you through pain and suffering to get you to understand what he wants you to do because he doesn’t enjoy hurting you, he loves you so much he willing to do anything to get you back no matter what.
God does not have to send you through hell and back to get you to realize what he trying to tell you. God tells us to do things but some of us are so stubborn that we rather do the complete opposite then what he says, but those things lead to punishment because you decide not to listen. God has all his children attached to him no matter what, so you can walk miles away from God but he can just tug you right back to him. We don’t need to fall away from God because any other path is the wrong way. We will always have God on our side we just need to be on his side.
God loves us with all his heart. Everyone commits a sin in there everyday life, and with every sin we stray further from God’s light, but he stays exactly where he is so we can come back to him anytime. But with sin comes consequences, and it can be from simply hurting your toe, to a cut in the skin, to a fatal injury. God might punish us, but in the end if we are on his side we don’t have to worry about going through any type of pain anymore. God has done much for us to show his love for us and will continue to show us love.
God will always love us until the end of time, so let’s continue to follow his path of light and goodwill. God has and will always love, so let’s not put him or yourself through any type of pain.
