In The Midst Of The Storm.

When we found ourselves in the midst of Hurricane Matthew in Miami Florida we could not lean on our own understanding or natural strength. My friends and I were experiencing the threatening sounds of the winds and the waves from our hotel rooms. We saw the minute to minute daily headlines of destruction. We heard words of impending doom and disaster reported 24/7. We saw people scrambling to buy gas, food and water at 711. We even got turned away from Popeyes because there was no more chickens left in the house. 

This was truly a valuable lesson about praying and not fainting. This was a time when we had to totally rely on the promises of God for divine Protection, Provision and Preservation. By faith we had to reach out and touch the heart of God through our prayers! This was our declaration through the storm!


              ~We Are Armed~

We are armed with Heaven’s Artillery,

To fight against the forces of darkness;

That we feel and see.
We are armed as true Soldier’s of the Cross,

And not one person will be wounded;

And none shall be lost!
We are armed with the Blood of Jesus as our covering,

And it deflects every arrow;

That the enemy brings.
We are armed with the Word,

As our two-edged sword;

And we are a committed, 

To remain on one accord!
We are armed with the Name of ELOHIM,

And Hurricane Matthew is not greater than Him!

We are armed with the power of the Holy Ghost,

And we are the salt and the light. 

That He has left on this earth.

My Spiritual Eyes.

Day # 73 of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy. 

Today I am Thankful for my second pair of eyes. I am thankful that I can look beyond the seen things that are temporary to the unseen things that are eternal. I am thankful that I am not moved by what I see , feel and hear. I am thankful that faith has made it possible for me to Count It All Joy by living from my spiritual position and not the natural condition of this world.#FaithHasEyes!


       ~My Spiritual Eyes ~

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

That Jesus Christ has set me totally free.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

The ultimate price that He paid upon Calvary.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

The host of Heaven’s army and artillery.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

That His angels has been assigned to care for me.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

That the enemy has no more dominion over me.

Let God Outfit You.

“So Saul clothed David with his armor, and he put a bronze helmet on his head; he also clothed him with a coat of mail. David fastened his sword to his armor and tried to walk, for he had not tested them. And David said to Saul, “I cannot walk with these, for I have not tested them. ” So David took them off.” I Samuel 17:38-39 NKJV

David discovered that when it comes to fighting the forces of darkness you have to allow God to outfit you. He discovered that ‘One size does not fit all.’ He learned that the battle belongs to the Lord and that He alone can give you a divine strategy that leads to victory.

“So it was, when the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, that David hurried and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.” I Samuel 17:38-39, 48-49 NKJV 

The Sassy Bee says,for David a stone and a sling was more than enough. So Bee wise and let God outfit you!

~More Than Enough~

Saul placed his armor upon David,

But the garment did not fit;

For God had a different method,

And that tunic was not it!
The stone in David’s bag,

 Was more than enough;

To slay the mighty giant;

That was boasting and strutting his stuff.
In the eyes of Goliath,

David was just a little thing;

But in the mind of the Master,

He was already a King.

My 👀 Are On Jesus.

Day # 72 Of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All joy.

Sometimes what I see, feel and hear does not readily line up with the word of God. But seen things are only temporary and the unseen things are eternal. Today, I am choosing to look beyond the natural. I am thankful that I can live from my spiritual position and not the natural condition of this world. I am choosing to Count It All Joy for my spiritual 👀 eyes and ears 👂👂. Above all I am thankful for my 🙏🏽 👄prayer life and the gift of tongues that gives me supernatural understanding of God’s mysterious. #IAmLettingItRip!


          ~My Eyes~

I am keeping my eyes on the author, 

And the finisher of my faith;

For the timing of His fulfillment,

Is never too late!
I am keeping my eyes,

On His precious promises;

And I am daily confirming,

That I am His!
I am keeping my eyes,

On the prize that is still ahead;

And I am giving Him thanks,

For my daily bread!

My Recitation To The King.

Day # 71 of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy.

I am Counting It All Joy that I can daily have an audience with the King. His love lights my path. He has given me gifts that I haven’t earned. And when I am in His presence, life cannot distress me and people cannot impress me! 

Today, this is My Recitation to The King….
   ~LORD ~

You are my getting up,

When I am feeling down.

You are a present help,

That is all around.
You are my sunshine,

On a rainy day.

You are the light that shines;

And lead the way.
You are the anchor,

To which I steadfast hold.

You are the joy and comfort of my soul!

The Weapons.

I have made it to Day # 70 of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy. 

This Sassy Bee is Counting it all joy this morning for life,family, friends, provision and my gifts. Above all I am thanking God for the ultimate sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ.I am thanking Him for His daily correction, direction and divine protection. I am thanking Him because He has taught me how to Count it all joy in the midst of life’s storms and unanswered questions. And yes, many weapons did form. But thank God, they did not and will not ever prosper!

     ~The Weapons~

The weapons did form,
But they did me no harm.

The tongues wagged their tales,

But their words fell and failed.

There were arrows that flew,

But they did not get through.

There were pestilence in the dark,

And a lot of evil talk.

There were terrors in the night,

But they had to take flight.

I saw destruction all around,

But they did not take me down.

For The Greater One lives in me,

And I have angels that surrounds me.

Do It Anyway.

Day #69 : Of my 100 Days  Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Throughout my painful childhood and adulthood, what I could not say out loud I was able to write. Today, I am so thankful that God has given me the pen of a ready writer. It has served me well! Over the years, I have been able to pen eloquent words of comfort, love, hope and healing. In many ways those inspired words has become part of my own therapy and recovery.

But beyond the writings,Count It All Joy is committed to produce products that are inspired by faith, perfected by design and functional and stylish. It has not been easy. There has been many bumps along the path to the company’s growth and development. When I started the Company, I also found myself in the throes of divorce and 3/4 of my childhood homeland was devastated by a volcano eruption. During that season, what God was calling me to do was way beyond my natural ability and my wildest imagination. Even after praying and seeking Godly counsel, there were many visible and invisible forces that I still had to overcome. Today, Count It All Joy stands as a living testimony that God is able to bring restoration out of devastation. Here are a few lessons that I learned along the path to obedience.

💰Money will be tight,

And you will not feel right.

The cruse of oil might stop flowing,

And you won’t know where you are going.

Fear will try to stop you,

And doubts will harass you.

Your friends may laugh,

And total strangers may scoff.

Your own mind might suggest,

That you are really off.

Some people will mock you,

And family may not back you.

But when it comes to your own destiny,

Somethings you really just have to!

I Am Looking Back At Calvary.

The Apostle Paul said, “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV

I too believe in pressing forward for the upward calling. But today, I am compelled to pause for a moment to look back over my life and humbly thank The Lord for what He has accomplished at the Cross of Calvary. I am thankful for all of the gifts that He has given to me. But above all, I pray that I would to be a good steward of His manifold grace. (1Peter 4:10) I pray that as I reach forward to the things ahead, that my life would continue to bring honor to Him and a blessing to Society.


           ~I Am Looking Back~

Lord, today I am looking back at Calvary,

As a reminder of the Blood;

That You shed there for me.

Lord, I am looking back at Calvary,

As a reminder that Your body was broken for me.

Lord, I am looking back at Calvary,

As a reminder of the great price;

That You paid there for me.

Lord, I am looking back at Your nailed pierced hands,

To grasp the power of Your righteousness;

In which I now stand.

Lord, I am looking back at Calvary,

For it is a sobering reminder;

That you hung there for me!

Redeeming The Time.

Today, I am Choosing to Count It All Joy in the midst of the pain and the questions that I have over another precious breath that has been taken.I am Counting It All Joy because I know where my help comes from! My help comes from the Lord. For I know that I am nothing without Him and I can do nothing without Him! Therefore, I owe it to myself and to Him to become all that He has created me to be.I am taking seriously His counsel from the book of Ephesians. Selah!

“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians‬ ‭5‬:‭15‬ -17)

Today, I am endeavoring to understand His will…

That means:

* To try a little harder, 

* laugh a little louder, 

* love a little deeper, 

* live courageously in the moment, 

* But never forget about eternity.


Lord help me to occupy,

Until You come.

And anoint me for the race,

That You have called me to run.
Lord, help me to occupy,

Until You come;

And let me walk in the victory

That was won through the Son.
Lord, help me to occupy,

Until you come;

And never let me take any credit,

For anything You have done.

Stop Throwing A Fit.

I am thankful for social media that helps us to create events, share information, voice our opinion and instantly bring us up to date with current affairs. 

However, I have discovered that:

Facebook really tries……. but cannot solve all the drama.

Instagram has a way of sharing……But some images are not appropriate.

Twitter gives a short update ……but not everyone really cares about your tweet, tweet.

And if you are not really careful, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can cause you to throw a FIT instead of providing you with any real solution.

But God’s ears are always open to our cry! “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.” Psalms 145:18-19 NKJV



Instagram .. I 
Twitter…….. T

And today, as you reflect on the tragedy of 911, I pray that you would join me in asking God for healing for this generation.


Reach out and touch this generation,

With your healing and salvation.

Give them the true vision to which they are called, 

And anchor them securely so that they won’t fall.
Lord, tear down the walls of hatred and separation,

And bring peace and reconciliation.

Lord,bring comfort to the hurting hearts,

And the lives who are crushed and torn apart.

Lord, give them a reverential fear,

And close the doors to deception and despair.

Lord, give them sound wisdom that comes from on high.

And bend down your ears to the voice of their cry.

Joyce A. Boahene© 9/11/16
