THE GOOD LIFE.

Living the GOOD LIFE is not about status. It is not about chasing after money, and it is not even all about you. It is about LOVING GOD and LOVING PEOPLE!
This scripture gives us God’s simple Recipe for LIVING THE GOOD LIFE! “Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here’s what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you’re worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he’s asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things.” 1 Peter 3:8-12 MSG

Move On With Your Life.

So often we are waiting on our abusers to come back and say ” I was wrong or I am sorry.” Unfortunately our abusers DO NOT REMEMBER. They are suffering from AMNESIA! But God has not forgotten. He is keeping the books and His account is always accurate. Ultimately He will right every wrong! But don’t spend your precious time waiting for justice. GO ON with your LIFE. TRUST GOD, continue to DO GOOD and FORGIVE!


   Make this your prayer today……  
        

      ~I Have Faith~

I have Faith in a God that I cannot see, 
I have Faith that all things will work out for me.

I have Faith to believe that He will right every wrong,

I have Faith to believe that He will keep me strong.

I have Faith to believe Christ is coming again,

And that in His reign and His kingdom there will be no end.

I have Faith to believe that his Word is enough,

And that in spite of the challenges;

I am a child that He loves!

TELL PHARAOH GOODBYE.

Day # 100: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy.

I am thankful that I made it to my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy. Now it is time for me to cross over into the New Year 2018.

Whether you are making a new resolution or working on a present solution, you need to confront Pharaoh! The children of Israel once had a Pharaoh that God had to deliver them from.“ And the LORD spoke to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”‭‭Exodus‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Whether you believe it or not, we all have a Pharaoh somewhere in our lives! It may be an actual person that keeps tearing you down and hindering you from reaching your destiny. It may be the mistakes from the past that keeps haunting you. It may be a stubborn habit that won’t let you quit. It may even be your own voice that says “I Can’t.” It may be your present circumstances that allows you to take one giant step forward, then two painful steps backwards.

But no matter what it is or how it looks, it is time to leave Egypt and cross the River Jordan into your promised land. And remember this, whenever you prepare to make a transition, old pharaoh is going to tell you that you will never be free. As a matter of fact, he will try to send his army after you to bring you back to familiarity. For he knows that when a life of bondage is all that you have known, true freedom can feel like a real threat. But fear not! Jesus has already mapped out your deliverance! So go ahead and tell Pharaoh GOODBYE! Then take the hand of Jesus and move forward with courage and strength. Don’t look back! And never regret leaving the wilderness! For those sentiments of the past will only sabotage your progress and set up a permanent monument that spells DEFEAT!

Pharaoh will tell you,

That you will never be free;

But don’t listen to his lies,

And don’t you agree!
Pharaoh will entice you,

To return to your mess;

But just look to your Savior,

And you will pass the test!
Pharaoh will remind you,

Of the onions and leaks;

And threaten that if you leave him,

You will have nothing to eat.
But Jesus owns the cattle,

That is sitting on the hill;

And He will turn the tide,

And He will do what He wills!

The Power Of The Pen.

       

Day # 99: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy.

I am thankful for the power of the pen that always find words to nourish the soul, challenge me to grow spiritually and leave an indelible mark.I am thankful for the Poetic gift that gives expression to the soul and the deeper and secret longings of the heart.Some times what I am unable to say out loud I can write.

Taking this 100 Day’s Challenge has allowed me to rejoice even when I did not feel like it. It has challenged me to keep going when I wanted to give up. It has challenged me to forgive and forget. But above all, it has challenged  my faith to keep on growing ,loving and giving!

Happy Birthday Jesus.

Day # 97: Of My 100 Day’s Of Counting It All Joy.

It is Christmas morning. But I am not looking for anything under a Pine tree! After all, it is Jesus Birthday, and not mine! And anyway , all the STUFF that we keep accumulating from year to year is only TEMPORARY! But Faith, Hope and Love are the gifts of God’s Son that are ETERNAL!

I am Counting It All Joy that because of Jesus I am STILL BREATHING! I am thankful that I don’t have to worry about tomorrow. For the scripture reminds me that He will remain Wonderful,Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. So today I am celebrating Jesus birth! And I am going to embrace 2018 with Joy knowing that our government will be upon His shoulder and not mine!

Merry Christmas to all! And may you and your family experience the true meaning of Christ birth. John 3:16

TWENTY EIGHTEEN

Day # 96: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy.

I am Counting It All Joy that 2017 is coming to a close. My 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy has allowed me to give Thanks in spite of the rough terrain. Scripture encourages us to give thanks in all things! So I am giving God Thanks for His Grace and Mercy that has brought me this far. I am especially giving Thanks for the next chapter that is about to be written! Count It All Joy would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and thank you for your business and loyalty. I pray that your journey in 2018 will be a  great year filled with Love, Joy, Peace and Hope!

🔑TWENTY EIGHTEEN🔑

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

Of the OPEN DOOR.

And you have never set foot,

On this path before.

Twenty Eighteen will be marked,

By a season of STRENGTH.

So prepare to leave the past,

And start pitching a new tent.

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

Of a NEW BEGINNING.

It is abounding with Grace,

And it is a race that you are WINNING!

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

When your Faith will say Now;

And the Holy Ghost will rise up,

And show you just how!

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

Of the OPEN DOOR.

And God has declared;

That the enemies that you have known,

You will see them NO MORE!

His Light

Day # 95: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

When life feels like a pressure cooker and I am wondering what on earth is going on, the message bible gives me the perfect answer. Don’t be naive, you are living in difficult times. “But don’t let it faze you.” Stick with what you learned and believed, sure of the integrity of your teachers—why, you took in the sacred Scriptures with your mother’s milk! There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5, 14-17 MSG

Today I am Counting It All Joy that God has given me everything that I need to navigate the journey of my life.

                    

       ~His Light~

I don’t have to be afraid,

Or be deceived;

For God has given me His Holy Word,

And I do believe!
I don’t have to walk in the darkness,

For God has given me His light;

So I can live by His daily wisdom,

And endeavor to do what is right!

NAME ABOVE All NAMES.

Day # 94: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

I am on Day # 94 of my 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy. I have been challenged. I have been tried, and my faith has truly been tested. But December is a joyful reminder that 2017 is about to come to an end. Hallelujah! My 100 Day’s Challenge is still finding me giving thanks to the Lord for His bountiful blessings and for navigating me and our Nation though a year of unprecedented turmoil.

I am Counting It All Joy for the rising sun, and the mIghty things that God has done. I am thanking Him for the moon and star. But this morning I am making it even more personal by saying thank You Lord, not just for what You do, but for who YOU ARE! 
                 

                  ~YOU ARE~

You are El Elyon the most high God,

And as El Shaddai You are the Mighty God.

You are Adonai the great ruler,

And the Holy Ghost is the best tutor.

You are Yahweh, You are Jehovah Lord,

And with you there is nothing that’s too hard!

You are Jehovah Nissi ,

You are my victory;

And Your banner is waving over me.

You are Jehovah Raah, my Good Shepherd,

You are the greatest guide that I have ever  had!

You are Jehovah Rapha ,You are my healer,

And the Holy Spirit is my revealer.
You are Jehovah Shammah, You are always there,

And your Holy presence is always felt so near.

You are Jehovah Tsidkenu, You are my righteousness,

And my sins you forgive them when I confess.

You are Jehovah Jireh, You provide for me,

And all of your blessings I am able to see!

You are Jehovah Shalom, You are my inner peace,

And with confidence I can rise up and lie down at ease!

PANDORA’S BOX.

Count It All Joy is praying for all of the women who have tasted the bitter cup of abuse. Remember this, you no longer have to be muzzled by the bad wolf! For Pandora’s box has now been opened! So take courage. Move forward. Give yourself time to heal. But above all, start creating your own treasure box that is filled with FAITH, HOPE & LOVE!

          

         ~PANDORA’S BOX~

Somebody has opened Pandora’s box,

And the things that were hidden;

We can’t put them back.
Somebody is calling men to accountability,

For the records are wide opened;

For all to see.
Somebody is calling men,

To take responsibility;

And start treating all women, 

With utmost respect and dignity. 

Joyce A. Boahene© 11/29/17
