He Is The.

Day # 67: Of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy.

I am Counting It All Joy because when God gives me a promise, “I can HOLD ON to it!” He has promised to supply all that I need. Therefore, I believe that in every situation I will have all that I need to succeed! 

                  ~He Is The~

He is the perfect💡LIGHT upon my path,
He is the ROCK on which I can embark,

He is the WATER springing from the Well,

He is the One who lifted me when I fell.

He is the TABLE where I can 🍴eat for free,

He is the covenant BANNER over me.

He is The Good SHEPHERD who cares for the 🐑sheep,

He is the One who 👁watches over me when I sleep.

Will You?

When God calls us from our comfort zone, some will refuse to answer. And many who have answered will abandon the call because they are counting the cost. For the greater call will always require greater Service,Commitment and Sacrifice. But when we pause and consider what Christ has accomplished for us through His death, burial and resurrection, our reasonable response is to humbly say “Yes Lord.” For what we give up in this life for Him will never be greater than the life that He gave up for us. Selah!

When God comes knocking on the door of our heart, we can either resist Him or do as the Apostle Paul did. “And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.” Acts 9:6 KJV

No one knows when God is going to call or apprehend them on the road to Damascus! However when He does, there are a few compelling questions that He will require each and everyone of us to answer. 
                                 
                 
                     ~Will You~

Will you lay down your life to follow after me?
Will you pay the price to fulfill your divine destiny?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me?

Will you love the ones who have hurt and offended you?

Will you pay the price to die to yourself,

Will you live by your faith and not by your flesh?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you walk by my Word and not what you see?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you set the ones who are wounded and captive free?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you cry out for the eyes of all nations to see?

Will you lay down your life to follow after me,

Will you be the vessel of honor that I’ve called you to be?

As I Look.

Day # 66 of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy!

Today I am thankful for my Creator and His Creation!
         
      

       ~As I look~

As I look at the horizon,

There is such beauty that I see.

I see the Creator of the universe,

And His manifested gifts to earth.
I see the splendor of His Majesty,

And the awesome love that He has for me.

I see the birds in the trees, 

And the clear blue sky;


And His power and His glory I cannot deny!

Not In Vain.

I am back to Day # 65 of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today, I am thankful that my life is a poem that is written by God. I am thankful that He has also given me the pen of a ready writer. I am thankful that there are divine moments when He allows me to capture what is on His heart. Through it all, I can truly say that my suffering has not been in vain!

     ~My Suffering~

My suffering was not in vain,

For God saw the great glory

That would come from my pain.
My suffering was not in vain,

For God gave me a Savior;

And He covered my shame.
My suffering was not in vain,

For to wound and afflict me;

Was never His aim!

Keep Walking.

WhenJesus told his disciple to let down his nets for a catch, Hate was not the BAIT, but LOVE was the KEY! When Jesus calls us to fish, it is never to uncover other people’s weaknesses or their frail humanity. But rather it is to rescue the souls of those who are sitting in darkness and living under oppression. If Jesus has called you to walk on the water, GO AHEAD and launch out into the deep! And while your hands and your legs are still shaking, remember that you are in for a catch and you will not sink!                                              

                                           ~Keep Walking~
                                           

                                        Keep walking on the water,

                                        For you will not sink;

                                        For your faith is so much stronger,

                                        And you are further than you think!

                                        Keep casting your nets,

                                        For I am the keeper of the watch;

                                        And the hand is clearly stating,

                                        That you are in for a catch!
                                        A fishing and a catching,

                                        For the souls of men;

                                        With my power and anointing,

                                        For the broken to mend

Lay Aside The Weights.

Some weights that you are carrying are not of your own making. They were picked up because of your desire to show compassion and do good. Unfortunately, the beneficiaries of your kindness have moved on to higher grounds. And yes, they are oblivious to the fact that they have left you with scars and wounds that only your Creator can heal. The end result is they have tripped you up and hindered you from running your life race. 
Jesus is the only one I know who successfully ran His race with the weight of the world upon His shoulders and rose up victoriously! His word of advice for today is “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin. Hebrews 12:1-4 NLT

Jesus is not insensitive to your pain. He is your burden bearer. However, He is saying loud and clear that it is time to lay aside the weights and move forward.

Moving forward means:

*Forgiving yourself for been deceived.
*Forgiving those who have wounded you.

*Asking God to restore your soul and put you back on his original path and timetable.

It also means:

*Watching your associations.

*Detoxing your mindset & thoughts patterns.

*Watching over your conversations and making positive confessions. 

*Getting a heavenly perspective of your circumstances.

*But above all, it means making a decision to stop bleeding over the bygone years.

*It is time to tell your betrayers, “You Tried To Sting Me, but I didn’t feel that!

God’s Creation Is So Beautiful!

God’s Creation is so beautiful! So I say to everyone who is called to lead, be careful how you handle it. And be Extra careful where you are leading us!         

                 ~IF YOU ARE~

If you are called to be an instrument of change,

In this day and this hour;

Rise up and use your talents,

But don’t abuse your power.
If you are called to be an instrument of change,

In this day and this hour;

Be sure to find those hidden treasures,

That you are destined to recover.
If you are called to be an instrument of change,

In this day and this hour;

Remember that you are the prime example,

That the future generation will have to follow.

I CHOOSE TO FORGIVE.

DAY # 64:
I am back on my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy. Today I am Counting It All Joy because I am reminded that I have received the free gift of forgiveness and therefore I am choosing to keep walking in love and forgive.

                 

                ~We Have All~

We have all experienced the great fall of humanity,

And we have all been stung;

By old patterns and behaviors of insanity.

We have all been stung,

By the venom of pain and regret ;

And we all have some wants,

That has not yet been met.

We have all felt the piercing wounds of our fellowman,

But by God’s grace we are still here;

And we are able to stand!

We have all been forgiven,

And we must choose to forgive;

For carrying the weight of the past on your shoulders,

Is a terrible way to live!

Joyce A. Boahene© 8/4/16

Are There Anymore Esther’s?

Esther cried for her nation! Will you cry out for yours?

              ~ANYMORE ESTHER’S~

Will there be anymore Esther’s left in the house,

Or are they all packing up and heading South?

Are there anymore Esther’s who are willing to stand,

And face the King with the golden scepter in His hand?

Are there anymore Esther’s who will fight and win,

In a world that is corrupted by evil and sin?

Are there anymore Esther’s,

Who perceive that they are here,


To stand in the gap for their nation;

Without inhibition or fear?

A Life Of Faith.

Day # 63: Of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today I am reminding myself why I can Count It All Joy in spite of what is going on in the world. I am Counting It All Joy because the only Hope that I have in winning the war on evil is trusting God and living a life of Faith!

    ~MY HEARTFELT 🙏🏽~

Lord, let not my ❤️be troubled,
By the evil that I see 👀.

And let me not get caught up in the fight,

But help me to🏃🏿walk daily;

In Your love and Your perfect💡light.

Lord, when I pray let me have what I believe, 

And let me not be ignorant or be deceived.

Lord, let me not cast away my confidence,

For You are my Hope and my only strong defense.
