Jealousy, Such An Ugly Word!

Image by Tina Unsell Seamon

Jealousy.

Eww, such an ugly word, right!

In the Christian circle, jealousy is not something you talk about.

Not openly, anyway.

It is preferred to be kept silent, hidden and not expressed to those who might judge you for actually having feelings of jealousy towards another.

Especially, if you claim the title of a Christian.

However, you cannot hide how you feel, even if you tried.

There is that old saying, “Faith over Feelings.”

I agree with that statement, however you cannot run, hide and pretend that your feelings don’t exist.

All that will do is cause you more harm than good.

God knows you are going to have feelings.

Some good feelings and some bad.

There is nothing wrong with having feelings.

It is all part of being human.

What is wrong is when you don’t own up to them and take responsibility for them.

That is the first step.

The next step is to take those unwanted feelings before the Lord.

Be honest with Him.

You are not hiding anything from Him that He doesn’t already know so just confess and talk to Him about them.

Allow Him to heal you from those unwanted feelings and ask Him to show you how to become more confident in who you are in Him

Ask Him to show you ways in which you can drive out these envious thoughts.

You can do this in so many ways.

Some examples are:

• Stay in His Word.

Pray continually to God.

Talk to Him like you would your best friend, because He is.

Never forget the Lord’s great love for you.

Know that your true identity is in Christ Jesus.

Put on worship music and praise Him for who He is.

Lift up your voice and proclaim the great things that He has done and will do for you.

Know you are uniquely and wonderfully made in God’s own image.

Stay in a mindful state of gratitude; which will drive out envy.

Look for ways to celebrate the blessings of others.

Welcome the simple act of having a giving heart which will free you from thoughts of envy.

Express how you are feeling with other believers.

Listen to sound advice from other believers on how you might be able to overcome those feelings of jealousy towards someone else.

If you try to pretend that those feelings are not there, brush them off, condemn yourself for having them, then you are essentially denying your feelings and that can detrimental to your health and emotional well being.

Lets face it, we have all felt jealousy towards another individual at some point in our lives.

We have compared ourselves in so many ways it can be hard to keep track of them all.

If you say that you haven’t felt jealousy or envy toward another, then chances are that you are not being honest with yourself and you are certainly not being honest with God.

I know that as a Christian having feelings of jealousy towards another is not something we want to carry around within our hearts and spirits.

It is a heavy weight and a burden that we want removed, and removed swiftly.

I myself want my attitude to be one of encouragement when I see others; especially other Christians, accomplishing great things in God’s Kingdom work.

I want to stand proud and cheer them on with gladness and purity of heart.

But sometimes, the flesh takes precedence over our emotions and feelings and we just can’t seem to feel in the way we hoped we would.

That is when we need to take it before the Lord.

Even in our shame we can still lay it at His feet.

He will lift it and carry the weight of it for you.

Psalms 55:22 says – “Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

This should be a tremendous encouragement to all true Believers.

Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there!

1 Peter 5:6-7 says – “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

Go before the Lord in humility and seek His counsel.

He will not stir you wrongfully.

Trust Him and let him lift your burdens.

Jesus said we could cast all of our cares on him because he cares for us!

There is nothing we are going through that we cannot cast on the Lord.

God cares for what concerns you.

I understand how difficult it can be to avoid the trappings that the enemy so cleverly persuades upon the human heart.

James 4:7 reminds us to – “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Remember Satan was defeated at the cross. He has no authority over Christians.

1 Peter 5:8-9 is a beautiful reminder to – “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”

Every true believer has faced or will face the onslaught of the evil one so we must stay mentally self-controlled, awake and watchful at all times.

This battle is not yours, it is the Lords!

Remember in 2 Chronicles 20:15, which plainly states – “…Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”

Allow the Lord to fight for you.

If we try to fight the battle on our terms, we will lose; if we fight the battle on His terms, we will win.

Remember beloved, as long as we walk in this fleshly body, we will be tempted.

We will be tempted in mind, body, and in spirit.

Our feelings and emotions are not immune to the devices of Satan.

In fact, that is how he accomplishes the majority of His evil schemes.

Don’t allow shame and condemnation to filtrate into your soul and spirits.

Remember what God’s Holy Word tells us in Romans 8 – “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

But even against all of our greatest efforts, the enemy will faithfully and without any resistance, continually remind us of our past failures, mistakes, and misgivings.

This is done so that we will continue to feel shame, regret, and guilt.

Remember that it is only our sin that is condemned and Jesus has set us free.

Remain steadfast and allow His love, grace and mercy to pour over you each and every day.

This will prevent you from having envious thoughts that will only cloud your mind, heart and spirit.

Give thanks for the gift of the Holy Spirit within us to convict us of sin and turn us back to Christ Jesus.

Be not forgetful, Christ already fought the battle and won, and did so at the Cross.

By doing that, the Holy Spirit has guaranteed us victory through Christ.

Pray this Prayer

Dear Lord, We come before You, and ask that you purify our hearts and minds. Remove from our spirits those unwanted thoughts of envy and jealousy. We know that these feelings that so often accompany us along our journey are not pleasing to You. We want desperately to walk with sincerity, love and holiness. Help us, Lord, to uplift, encourage and edify other Christians as they diligently and faithfully go about Your Kingdom work. Strengthen and guard us against the evil one, Lord! Let Your peace and Your Word be our shield of faith that repels us against our unwarranted emotions and feelings of inadequacy. Remind us of who we are in You- beloved and cherished, forgiven and free. Bring your life and peace into each of our days and help us to walk righteously. Empower us to overcome a spirit of jealousy and the condemnation that often stricken us from accomplishing the plans that You have for us. May we forever grow in Your truth, grace, and love. We ask this in Jesus’ precious Name, Amen

In His Love,
Tina ♡

THE LORD IS MY ROCK

Photo: Tina Unsell Seamon

When I think about all that I have been through,
All the pain, all the heartache, and all the suffering,
Nights of tear soaked pillows,
All the mistakes I have made,
And will make,
Feeling like a failure
In everything,
Never quite measuring up,
Defeat etched into my mind,
Self worth all but diminished,
Feeling abandoned,
Unloved,

I am comforted by the assurance that through it all God was there.

Even now
I have immense battles that I am desperately trying to conquer,
Enormous struggles that no one knows about,
Trying hard not to be what everyone else wants me to be,
But to just be me.
Longing for the wisdom
And strength to make wise decisions,
Reaching, but never quite grasping, what I was created to be.
Wanting desperately to be freed from the toxic
relationships that bind me.

Through it all, Even Still, God is there, Seeing my through.

Though my life isn’t what I had hoped it would be,
I have never given up.
I will never give up.
Taking each day as a lesson,
Watching, waiting, trusting, seeking and learning all that God is teaching me along this journey..
Holding nothing back and laying it all at His feet..
Letting go,
Allowing Him to teach me,
To lead me,
To guide me,
Filling me with His wisdom,
His strength,
His courage,
Helping me to face each day anew.
Loving me as His precious child,
Renewing my mind, soul and spirit with His Truth,
Instilling in me a new found confidence to rise above the challenges and the struggles,
To claim victory over my life.

He has given me the life-giving keys that I need
to free me from the things that keep me bound.
The keys are hidden in His Word (the Bible) empowered by prayer,
and completed by the work of His Holy Spirit living in me,
Giving me a newfound freedom
and a hope so that I may share it with others,
Not only so that I may find my own way,
but in the hopes that others might find theirs.
He has called me out of the darkness
To be a bright and shining light for and to others.

I find peace and rest in knowing that through it all He was there,
Is there still,
In the midst of it all.
My rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God,
my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the
horn of my salvation, and my high tower (‭‭Psalms‬ ‭18:2‬ )..
My ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1)..
He fights for me continuously,

Never once have I ever been alone.
Even at times when I felt alone
He was there,
Comforting me with His love and presence.

He is here, Even Now,
Speaking to my heart.
When I silently listen,
In stillness I hear,
He says softly that I am worthy,
I am loved,
I am cherished,
I am valued,
I am forgiven,
I am redeemed,
And I am His.
And He is mine.

God has promised that He will never leave or forsake His children.

Knowing the Omnipresence of God, He is everywhere
and He comes to us wherever and whenever we call on Him.

“I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God:
incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.”
~ ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭17:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Words can’t adequately express just how eternally
grateful I am for His love, mercy and grace.

Thank you, Lord, for loving me so,
And for making me your child.
I choose to walk the rest of my days in Your truth,
Knowing that, through it all,
You are there
Walking beside me.

Your beloved daughter.

.

.

.

I wrote this several years ago and although my relationship with the Lord has deepened to a greater degree, this still holds true today.

Through it all, Even Still, God is there, Seeing my through.

God Bless you,

Tina ~

― Inspired by Psalm‬ ‭1:1-3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; And in his law does he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth his fruit in his season; His leaf also shall not wither; And whatsoever he does shall prosper.”

Prayer For Today:

Lord, please help us to remain deeply rooted in unwavering and steadfast love for you, bearing fruit in each due season, and immovable when faced with adversity and those things that may dare to test our faith. Grant us favor, all the blessings and prosperity you have for us in the future. Help us, Lord, to remain focused on You, the giver of all spiritual increase. May we remain planted by Your Rivers of Living Water. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Prayer – There Is Nothing Like His Presence

Image: Tina Unsell Seamon- Writer

Lord, there is nothing like Your presence. When my heart is wearied, burdened, sorrowful, broken, or bruised, I can boldly come and sit confidently in your presence.

I know you hear the cries of your children. I know you care and want the very best for each of us. It is You that gives us strength when faced with adversity and it is You who sustains us.

I am comforted by your Word that tells me that I will not be forgotten or forsaken. My heart finds its rest in You, Lord.

I never have to worry when the pressures of this life get too heavy or when apprehension rushes at me like a tidal wave everywhere I turn, You are my hiding place. You stand by my side and grant me quietness of mind, calm, and peace as I run into Your conforming arms.

When fear is crippling and even in my wandering I can be rest assured that everything will be alright because we know that all things work together for good to them that love You, Lord, and to them who are called according to Your divine purpose.

I know with You, I can face whatever may come my way. You are my joy. You are my strength. My sustaining power. My Rock and my refuge. My fortress and My high tower. You are the keeper of my heart. Nothing will ever compare to Your loving embrace.

Thank You, Lord, for enfolding me in Your love and powerful presence. My life is made whole and complete in You. I am forever thankful for your mercy and for your grace.

Amen 🙏🏻

Love, Tina ~

JESUS CHRIST IS OUR ANCHOR

Image by David Porter from Pixabay

Sometimes life isn’t always kind.
And I am certainly a-witness to that.
So often times it’s a test of faith
And I can with all honesty say that
I haven’t always past the test.
More often than not I fail miserably.

But God doesn’t expect us to always get it right.
But He does expect us trust Him
And to use the trails we face
As a way to learn and grow.
To become more dependent on Him
And not ourselves.
Easier said than done, right!

He is the strength we need
That will get us through the circumstances of this life.
We cannot run this race alone.
We need God! I know I desperately do!

He is our rock. Our shelter from the storms.
He is the one to run to when the waves
get too turbulent to withstand.
He is the one who will hold us up
and keeps us from drowning.

If I have learned anything by trying to
do things in my own strength,
It is that I will always fail…Undoubtedly!

God will and has always been the power,
The strength and the defense to our problems.
We just need to learn to rely on Him.

Because I can tell you from experience…
Without God in the midst of our situations
We will most assuredly drown.

Hardships are inevitably a part of life,
But with Jesus as our anchor
We can withstand any storm.

Simply put, our anchor is Jesus Christ.
He is our only salvation from sin — the anchor of our souls (Hebrews 6:19) that holds firm, especially when the storms of life threaten and when the enemy’s temptations blow hard against us.

I LOVE JESUS!

“I B E L I E V E that there is no other way of life that makes a difference apart from C H R I S T.”

— Tina Unsell Seamon

Words can’t really express my love for Jesus, but if I were to list my affections for Him I would tell you that He is my heart, my everything and His spirit lives within me. He is all I want. I cannot imagine living my life without Him. I am uniquely made by God and I want to mirror His reflection to the world. I believe that there is no other way of life that makes a difference apart from Him. He is my every breath of Life, my reason which I live. His love is so overwhelming and all consuming. He empowers my every weakness with the strength He has to give. He is the love I never knew of, He’s the friend I never had. He calms me with his peace when I lose control and He brings joy when I am sad. He restores my soul. He’s the twinkle dancing in my eyes. He’s the smile upon my face. He’s my motive and my sole inspiration and the spark that ignites my fire. He’s my only hearts desire. He’s my rock and my fortress whom I trust. He’s my hope and my salvation. He’s my savior- JESUS CHRIST!! ♡

THE POTTERS HANDS ⚱️

Photo by ritesh singh on Unsplash

God in my waking – Walk with me daily, Lord
God in my sleeping – Be Thou beside me as I rest.
God in the center – In all that I say and do.
Take my life – I give it freely to You.
It is Yours – My life is not my own.
I am the clay – As is with all of humanity.
And You are the potter – Our Divine Potter.
Make Me – After Thy own will.
Mold Me – Shape me inwardly.
Transform Me – Spiritually fashion me into a vessel fit for Your use.
My Lord and King – Ruler and Master of all creation.
I give you everything – I offer my body, mind, soul and spirit to You.
I surrender it all – Not my will, but Thy will be done.
Use Me – As Your Chosen Vessel.
Fill Me – Holy Spirit have your way in me!
Guide Me – Consciously surrendering my free will to Thy will.
Everything I am – All that I am!
And all that I hope to be – In Christ Jesus.
I give my life…
To the potters hands.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and You our Potter, and we all are the Work of Your Hand. (In this Passage is the gist of the great Salvation Message of Christianity. Only God can change the shape of the clay, thereby molding the vessel into shape and design that is desired, thereby mending the flaws and weaknesses.)
– Isaiah 64:8

LOVE

Image by Thomas Jahn from Pixabay

What is love? Do you know it?
That word is tossed around these days so leisurely. There are all kinds of definitions for “LOVE”, but what does it mean to you?

Is it the kind of love that means you never have to say you’re sorry.

Is it love that makes you feel joy. The kind that when you awake in the morning you feel alive inside.

Is it romantic love, that leaves you breathless.

Is is putting another’s wants and needs before your own.

Is the kind of love that says that you are enough.

Is it love that is,
Patient
Kind
Does not Envy
Does not Boast
Is not Proud
Does not Dishonor Others
Is not Self-Seeking
Is not Easily Angered
Keeps No Records of Wrongs
Does Not Delight in Evil
But Rejoices in the Truth
Always Protects
Always Trust
Always Hopes
And Always Preserves (1 Cor 13:4-8)

All of these are beautiful examples or expressions of love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 is one of my favorite verses and so beautifully sums up what I believe a marriage should be, between a man and a woman.

However what does the word “LOVE”, really look like…The Ultimate Example of Love..

Is it the sacrificial kind of love that over 2000 years ago hung, bled, and died on a cross so that you and I might have eternal salvation with our Father in Heaven.

I believe that is what “LOVE”, really and truly looks like!

There is no greater love, than the love demonstrated by our Lord and Savior-Jesus Christ, that fateful day on Calvary Hill. (John 15:13)

What is love to you?

If you are feeling unloved today. Like you have no one in this entire world who cares for you. Family and Friends all but have abandoned you…

Remember this… YOU ARE LOVED! And you are not alone. Jesus loves you. He loved you enough to die for you and He loves you enough even still today, tomorrow and for all eternity. His love is everlasting.

Don’t place your value and worth into the heart of man, but know that your worth comes from the heart of God Almighty Himself. He says that you are worthy. He says that you are of value. He says that your life has a purpose. He will never leave or forsake you. He promises with Him you will never walk alone. He’s right beside you, every step of the way. He cares for you. You can trust Him!

GOD IS = “LOVE”

“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“We love him, because he first loved us.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
‭‭John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭KJV‬

“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:9-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:39‬ ‭KJV‬‬

THE MORE I SEEK HIM, THE MORE I FIND HIM

Image by Pezibear from Pixabay

On, April 19, 2013, a couple years after I was saved, I wrote the following…

I was a new Christian and still trying to find my calling and purpose in this life. Even still today, I surrender daily to His leading as He continually guides me along the path He has set before me.

I share this with you in the hopes that it will reveal just a small piece of my heart, while traveling along my own personal journey. This is not intended for anyone other than myself and my personal growth and testimony. However, I am sharing it by my own choosing, along with an sincere and heartfelt prayer that it might be a blessing to you in your own walk and journey with the Lord.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Those close to me say that I have changed.
My desires and wants are more clearly defined.
I expect more and I want more.
What’s wrong with that?
Less is no longer good enough.
Everything from my relationships to my walk with the Lord.
I may not deserve more, but it is okay to want more! Isn’t it?
I know that God wants to lavish His love upon me and give me desires of my heart.
I want to be inspired.
To inspire someone.
For my life to have meaning.
To give meaning to someone else’s life.
Some have said that this is just a midlife crisis!
To me – it is more like a midlife awakening.
An awakening of my mind, soul and spirit.
I want to mean something to someone.
To make a difference in others lives.
To say that I was here.
I don’t want to leave this earth with regrets and things left undone.
Words left unspoken.
I want to know that I had a purpose.
That I fulfilled the purpose and calling that God has ordained for my life.
To know that I touched someone’s life in a positive way.
I want to know that my feelings and thoughts and words were recognized, understood and validated.
I want to love without bitterness, resentment and anger.
I want to be loved for who I am.
I want to love others for who they are.
I want to feel like I am good enough.
To make someone else feel that they are good enough.
To share with others Christ love for them.
My heart longs to be a stepping stone for others.
To be a valued friend who supports and encourages others in their journey called life.
More importantly, my heart longs to lead others to salvation.
I want to be used by God.
To tell others about Jesus and His love poured out and demonstrated on Calvary’s cross.
Only God truly knows my heart and He is speaking to my heart, soul and spirit.
I have always known that God was there.
He has always been there, but I feel overcome by his presence.
The more I seek Him, the more I find Him.
His love is overwhelming me.
I pray that He will continue to lead and guide me.
My hope is that I can accomplish all that He expects of me in this life.
As long as I know God is for me, it doesn’t matter who is against me.
He is restoring, molding and making me whole.
Lord God, thank you for loving me and making me a new creation in your son, Christ Jesus.
Your, beloved daughter.

GOD SURELY LISTENS

Photo by Steve Halama on Unsplash

GOD surely listens, understands and knows the hopes and fears you keep in your heart. For when you trust him, Miracles happen.

-Unknown Author

Sometimes I think too much…
I tend to let my mind ponder on things far longer than I should.
Some might say that’s a good thing, I personally believe that in my own experiences it always isn’t.
If you are like me you sometimes struggle to find just the right words to express exactly what is in your heart and mind.
Often more times than not, worried that your words may be misunderstood.
Call it fear, fear of what others might think, fear of being judged.
Call it insecurities, that feeling of uncertainty in the pit of your stomach.
Call it anxiety about oneself, having a lack of confidence.
Call it self-doubt, being plagued by negative thoughts.
Call it what you wish.
In some form or fashion we have all experienced these feelings.
I have come to realize in my own journey, that when we aren’t truly free to be who we are and authentically express our thoughts and feelings, we aren’t being true to ourselves or to others or to God.

And I believe that God is calling us to step out in faith and to free ourselves from such bondages! He is calling us to break free of those chains and the things that keep our hearts and minds captive! Make a declaration today, as I have, to no longer be bound to the enslavement of such persecuting thoughts.

Take that first step and share your heart with others without the fear of condemnation.

It’s not always easy, and it often comes down to a choice:
• Choosing not to allow fear and anxiety to control your life.
• Choosing not to seek the approval of others. Ask yourself, am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? (Galatians 1:10)
• Choosing to focus your mind on what is truth in the midst of uncertainty. In Luke 24:38; Jesus said, “Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?” Being troubled by fear, doubt, discouragement and even despair, robs us of peace.
• Choosing to stand firm in unwavering faith and on the promises of God’s Word.

We should take these questions to heart. It is God in whom we aim to please. God knows the hopes and fears that you keep in your heart and He surely listens and understands. One of my favorite verses is, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
~ 2 Timothy 1:7

We might still feel afraid, but we can believe that God is with us. We may not be in control, but we can trust the One who is. We may not know the future, but we can know the God who does.

Allow His mercy and grace to fill your heart and mind with His peace. Walk in confidence knowing that their is nothing that you might do that would cause Him to love you any less.

Allow Him to lead and guide you and He will make your paths straight. Oh what marvelous Miracles and Wonders will abound when we trust Him and allow His presence, love and grace to dwell in our hearts and minds!

All of that stuff plaguing your mind? Give it to Him – again and again. Replace those fearful thoughts with His words of truth. He knows what concerns you, He’s got you covered. May all your fears find rest in Him.

“O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.”
‭‭~Psalms‬ ‭139:1-2‬ ‭

“The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? The Lord is with me; he is my helper.” ~Psalm 118:6-7
