God Bless America.

Independence Day is more than just fireworks, family reunion, barbecues, concerts, picnics or parades. It is about understanding, appreciating and continuing to uphold the principles of human rights. The words that were set forth in the Declaration of Independence are still applicable for today! “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
🇺🇸Let us not change the interpretation.

🇺🇸Let us continue to HONOR the founders who drafted the Declaration of Independence.

🇺🇸Let us endeavor to LOVE one another.

🇺🇸Let us use our freedom not to harm, but for the GOOD of society.

🇺🇸Above all let us pledge to HONOR and PRESERVE FREEDOM and true LIBERTY for all people.
Happy Fourth. #AndMayTheMighty Force Be WithYou!

STAY ANCHORED.

If you love God and follow after His heart you cannot lose!

“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.””

I Corinthians 2:9 NKJV.

God has a good plan for your existence. His plan goes above and beyond anything that you can imagine or asked of Him. He is FAITHFUL to bring His promises to pass regardless of your past or present station in life. So dare to ask Him to reveal the plan and let Him lead you one step at a time. And while you are on your journey, remember to resist the temptation to compromise. Remain Faithful. Do not grow weary. Do not settle for less. Stay anchored and hold on to God’s very best.

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made.

Today’s Prescription💊…..
Don’t wait for anybody to tell you how you rate,

Remember that God made you;

And He said that you are Great!

#Celebrateyouruniqueness

Illustration by Pat Flowers

God is the One who created you and He is the Only One that truly knows you! Here is the prescription for today.“O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” Psalms‬ ‭139:1-10, 13-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

My Daily Prescription💊.

No one has ever told me that I would have a pain free life.Yet every time that I face a challenge I must admit that I still get a little perplexed! But God never expects me to whine and complain about any situation. He simply requires me to speak to the problem with one of His promises. Yes, I am learning daily that His word is the only prescription that can bring me back from the brink when evil raises its ugly head. I am so thankful that I don’t ever have to fear any man made arrows. For my life is more valuable than many sparrows.

Today’s Prescription.

Today I am Counting It All Joy that even though this world sometimes feels like a pressure cooker, I can find daily strength and peace in the Greater One! Today’s prescription from the Good Book is, “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

     ~BE STRONG~

You have got to trust God,
To shed light on your path.

You have got to have faith,

But you must do your part.

You have got to trust God,

That He will right every wrong.

You have got to take courage,

And you have got to be strong.

God Is Greater.

Sometimes when I am feeling  abuse and oppress  I am so tempted to slap a few people just before I throw in the towel! But suddenly I snap back into reality when I remember Jesus and His selfless sacrifice.

Today, I am choosing to Count It All Joy and magnify God above my thoughts, feelings and emotions. For I acknowledge that He is greater than the challenges that I face from day to day. He is greater than any accusation. He is my light and my salvation. He is greater than any offense. He is my Rock and He is my strong defense. Today, I am holding fast to my confession of faith in God’s beautiful promises concerning me and my children.“ This exile is just like the days of Noah for me: I promised then that the waters of Noah would never again flood the earth. I’m promising now no more anger, no more dressing you down. For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, My love won’t walk away from you, my covenant commitment of peace won’t fall apart.” The GOD who has compassion on you says so.
“Afflicted city, storm-battered, unpitied: I’m about to rebuild you with stones of turquoise, Lay your foundations with sapphires, construct your towers with rubies, Your gates with jewels, and all your walls with precious stones. All your children will have GOD for their teacher— what a mentor for your children! You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness, far from any trouble—nothing to fear! far from terror—it won’t even come close! If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it. I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer— but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what GOD ’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” GOD ’s Decree.” Isaiah‬ ‭54:9-17‬ ‭MSG‬‬

He Saved Me.

I remember when my night was so dark and I had no light for the day. But just before hopelessness tried to engulfed me….. Jesus reached out His hands and saved me from the pit. “Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.” Romans‬ ‭5:6-8‬ ‭MSG‬‬

I am humbled by Jesus love and His selfless act! I honor and celebrate His glorious resurrection. Because He got up I don’t ever have to stay down! And what ever circumstances that I encounter in this life … I know that He will always turn it around.

     ~I Am Thankful~
 

I am thankful for the little things,
And the ray of Sunshine ;

That life brings.

I am thankful for the rising sun,

And the Mighty Things;

That God has done.

I am thankful for His protection,

And His daily source of provision.

I am thankful for the Throne of grace,

Where I can daily meet with my Savior;

Face to Face!

MY NEW ATTITUDE.

It is so much easier to focus on what we lack than what we have. But a true heart of Thanksgiving will help us to count our blessings and be a blessing. In reality nothing is really owed to us. For our very breath is truly a gift from above! Everyday can be a new opportunity to Do Good. Remember that there are always new inventions that are just waiting to be discovered. Perhaps you can be the change agent that the world needs today!


         ~ GRATITUDE~

Gratitude is my new Attitude,
That is lifting me to a higher altitude.

Gratitude opens up my heart, 

For Praise and Thanksgiving.

Gratitude gives me a greater appreciation,

For the blessed life that I am living.

SPRING FORWARD.

It’s a new day that holds new possibilities! And Wisdom says that this is the perfect way to begin your day. “Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” Philippians‬ ‭4:4-9‬ ‭MSG‬‬

So Spring Forward today with a new attitude. And add this message to your favorite ☕️ and enjoy.

~SPRING FORWARD~

Spring forward today,

With a new attitude;

And keep reaching,

For a higher altitude.

Spring forward with Hope,

For a better day.

And leave someone,

With a positive dose of inspiration; 

Along the way.

GOD’S PEARL.

“The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and in his joy he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a merchant seeking goodly pearls: and having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.” Matthew‬ ‭13:44-46‬ ‭ASV‬‬

I am celebrating Womanhood. I am Counting It All Joy that God found this treasure that was once hidden and made her a pearl of great price. I am thankful that He continues to restore my life by taking me from pain to His divine purpose. Above all, I am thankful that He has given me the ability to pen words of comfort and inspiration that leaves an indelible mark.

   ~GOD’S PEARL~

I am a virtuous woman,

So I don’t need to compete with a man.

I am a virtuous woman,

I am unique; 

And I know who I am!
I am a virtuous woman.

I am authentic;

I am God’s pearl of great price.

So on His Kingdom and His purpose

I am keeping my eyes.
