“Self-control and restraint are tools you use, that allows the Good Work that you do for God to float through the air with no physical evidence, yet God’s Power is Felt.” ~ Jon Barnes
“In order to improve, you need to play and hangout with people who are more honest and better than you, so that you can learn from them as they learn from you, while working out God’s Plan for your life.” ~ Jon Barnes

“When all hope seems lost and the odds appear to be stacked against you, rejoice anyway” ~Taryn Barnes
Living in Las Vegas, it’s safe to say that today has been a somber, reflective day. Evil, senseless, acts occur, which can cause us to question our purpose and our faith. As sad and tragic as life can be, we must remember to band together in faith and in love, lifting up our fallen brothers and sisters.
The actions of the person responsible were evil, unconscionable, and just plain without any sense or logic. Though tragedy singes the air, the sense of community, teamwork, and faith envelop this city, with its light drowning the darkness of evil. As the city continues to rebound from this atrocity, I’m hopeful that we will continue to lift up and encourage all those affected.
Question of the day
In the darkness, do you shine your light?

“When you stick with God’s plan, ways and thinking, people will wonder why you are correct, successful, and ahead of the pack, not following the crowd!” ~ Jon Barnes
Your life is special because God said it and you believed it because you are obeying what God wants you to do, with blind faith. You know that your thoughts are incorrect and it is fun to patiently wait for the set of instructions for the next mission to appear. When they do, you know the truth and the truth sets you free to laugh at all of the lies that are around you. God is never wrong. You’re Right for a change when you learn to love God’s corrections in your life, as you follow Him at His Word!

“The flagship of your love boldly goes into the Spirit and Heart of God; Because your obedience, repentance, acts of faith, gifts of thanksgiving, and thoughtfulness of how much God has blessed you, is well received by God’s Mercy, Grace, Plan, and Provision.” ~ Jon Barnes
Evil is only an illusion so that the truth of our love for God can be tested! The fact is, all things are recycled and reclaimed into God either into heaven or into hell. If you have a wicked heart, then you will believe the devil or if you have a pure heart for God, then you will believe Him at His Word! By faith, your personal ability to properly love people is what wrestles with God and His plans to bless you. You cannot reap what you have sown if you did not bless your enemies, crew, and your loved ones, who all tend to be one in the same. God’s Orders, Words, and Love cannot be corrupted, broken or altered.
