“And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” ~ James 3:18

One cannot sow in discord and expect peace. You must actively sow in peace to create an environment of peace and when you do, this verse promises you will reap the fruit of righteousness. What a promise! It’s important to note peace cannot abide in a toxic environment. Sometimes people are not willing to let go of that toxicity and all you can do is shake the dust from your feet and pray from a distance. Don’t allow your peace to be disrupted because they want to sow in discord. ~ 💛 Chelle, #f8ithgal

I am so thankful for the wisdom of God. When you need direction and you pray for wisdom God hears you. And when we responds and you walk in that wisdom it creates a peace like no other. There is nothing like walking with God and growing with Him. I am so thankful for my Poppa and His love for me. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, [and] easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” ~ James 3:17

Stop and read this verse again. God is not in envy and strife. Confusion comes from the enemy, God is not in it. If there is strife, God is not the source, dig deeper to the root of the problem. Pray and ask God to reveal it and pull it up from the roots. If you don’t, it will only grow out of control. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“16 For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work.” ~ James 3:16

Oh my heart the timing of this verse! I have had a really difficult week. I have an appointment on Monday that is pressing in my nerves and I could hear my Father whispering daughter where is your faith?! The weight of these verses really impressed upon me as I read them this evening. I love how the Holy Spirit works! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” ~ James 2:17-18

Was someone watching me today? Ohhh… it was You Poppa! The timing of this verse was perfect. I felt like my patience was being pressed all evening and after reading this verse, I had to ask my Father for forgiveness. I had read it this morning, yet I felt my nerves about to snap as they were stretched and pressed and tears welling up in my eyes. This verse was a reminder that I needed to just stop and pray and give it all to God. Thank You Poppa for always being on time. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.” ~ James 1:19-20

I love this verse. There have been so many times in my life that I have begged God for what I thought I wanted. I just knew it was what I needed, but He knew better. This verse reminds me every good gift, every PERFECT gift is from Him. There is no darkness in it, it doesn’t bring strife or worry… it is perfect when it comes from my Poppa. I’m so thankful for these gifts. I’ve been reflecting on this a lot lately as He moves the blocks of my life into place. Somethings are just worth the wait! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” ~ James 1:17

You can’t please the Lord and please man. The instability of trying to serve both will eventually begin to surface. It’s a heart issue. Where is your heart pulling you towards? The world has fallen away from God and while His ways are often unpopular, they will never lead you wrong. It is never been more important to have a close relationship with Him. It’s not what is popular that matters, it is what He leads you to that makes all the difference. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways.” ~ James 1:8

Give God praise right where you are. Give Him praise even in the midst of the storm because it is Him that is going to bring you out of the storm. Praise Him in the peaceful times, praise Him in the difficult times, praise Him saints! He is the source of our strength and from which all life flows and He us so worthy of our praise! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.” ~ Psalm 32:11
