HOW BEING OVERLOOKED HELPED LEAD TO MY BLOG…

​Transparent Testimony: 

A few years ago I was sent an invite to receive a monthy Christian newsletter from a group of ministers at a church I used to attend in Memphis.

I have to admit it hurt and offended me that I wasn’t asked to contribute, especially since I was writing professionally for a living. Hey, we all have human moments. Then I asked myself, if they asked me, would I be able to have good content once a month.

Fast forward to 2016 when God leads me to begin my website, BEBLESSTIFIED.COM. I made a commitment to make an original post every day. Since then God has given me inspiration every day. Some days, I can’t believe what God places inside me. I love blogging!

Oh yeah, being ignored at that church led me to the church that God meant for me to be. Had the Pastor not ignored me, I might still be ‘planted in the wrong field’.

I’m saying all this to say, that if God is allowing you to be excluded or ignored…maybe He is leading you down YOUR path, and not someone else’s.

Thanks for stopping by and…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

Hmmm…DOES GOD BREATHE?

Does God breathe? I don’t think so…He is breath.

Before you read any further, yes I’m aware of Genesis 2:7, but consider this…

God the Father is a spirit. He’s a life-giving spirit. He is life.

John 4:24 (KJV)

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth

1 Corinthians 15:45 (NKJV)

And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”[a] The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

Romans 8:11 (NKJV)

11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

If God breathed, that would mean He would have to have His life sustained. He sustains life.

It would mean He had lungs which, would mean could die.

He can’t die…He won’t die…and if we accept Yeshua Jesus Christ we won’t SEE death either.

John 8:51 (NKJV)

51 Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”

Oh yeah…I know what you may be thinking. what about Him ‘breathing’ the breath of life into Adam? It doesn’t mean He literally placed His ‘mouth’ over Adam’s nose and exhaled. God is presented anthropomorphically (ascribing human attributes to something or a being that’s not human) often in the bible. He’s a spirit…no hands, feet or even a heart. God doesn’t need a ‘brain’ to have thoughts. He just simply presents Himself that way in His word to help us understand how He interacts with us and the natural world. 

Speaking of the natural world, think about it…Plants produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, but they don’t inhale or exhale. God uses them to produce the life sustaining oxygen that our mortal bodies need to survive.


 God doesn’t have to inhale or exhale to ‘breathe’ life.


Even His word is ‘God-breathed’ inspiration (2 Timothy 3:16), that isn’t literally exhaled from holy lungs, but spiritually inspired directly from the ‘mind’ of God (1 Corinthians 2:16).

Does God have to breathe? I don’t think so…God is breath.
