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~

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

#SoLetUsStopThrowingAFit!

          On

Facebook….F 
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.

~LORD~

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.

  ~OUR CHILDREN~

Lord , I thank You,

That our children were not born for trouble,

At the hands of the devil.

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?
