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.

Everyday Is Women’s Day.

Ladies this month is called Women’s history month! But you should never wait for any day or month to define you or remind you that your life has significance. Actually everyday should be your day. So start by making them count for something. And remember that the true essence of your life is continually unfolding like a beautiful flower.


  🌹WOMEN’S DAY🌹

Everyday is women’s day,

Our voices are being heard;

And we have a lot to say.

Everyday is really women’s day,

For we are replacing the old books of history,

And we are unraveling some hidden mysteries.

Everyday is really women’s day,

For we are moving forward;

With dignity and great courage;

In a brand new way.

Lord Send Revival.

Lord my heart hurts to see the many lives that are been ravished by ignorance and the powers of darkness. Every corner of our community has a church. Most adults grew up in or have gone to Sunday school. They have sung “Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so”. Yet somewhere along the path the circumstances of LIFE has defied your word and baffle their human understanding. But no one can grasp your Wisdom with their natural minds….they have to receive it by Your Spirit. Yet the fact is it is tough to receive the good news of the gospel when people are hurting and blaming it on You. So this morning I am appealing to You to send revival! Open blind eyes, heal the sick, heal the broken hearted, set the captives free. Help people to understand that You are for them and not against them. Let them know that they have a FRIEND in Jesus. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬.  But Lord, I have to admit that it is an unbalanced message if we do not tell people that they have an invisible ENEMY called the THIEF. For your word says that ” The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬. 

Lord, I am praying this morning that my prayers will touch heaven and that heaven will touch the earth! I am praying that every person’s  spiritual eyes would be open to see the real enemy. I pray that they would receive the tools to combat him. But above all, I pray that they would just simply BELIEVE YOUR WORD and humbly receive the abundant life that Jesus came to give them. Amen!

~LORD~

Lord, people are really hurting,

And they are blaming it on You.

But the enemy just keeping on smiling,

Because he knows that it isn’t true.

Lord, people need Your divine wisdom,

And a view from Your Heavenly Kingdom.

Lord, people need to experience a revival,

As a sign for their hope and survival.

HAVE FAITH.

What gets me up in the morning goes beyond my favorite CUP OF JOE! …………..

When my alarm clock sounds off in the morning, It honestly takes FAITH to get up and SILENCE it. When I am feeling challenged by the activities of daily living, I ask FAITH to give me COUNSEL from on high. When my heart and my mind says I’ve had enough, I ask FAITH to give me COURAGE and “Get Me Up.” #HAVEFAITH.


      ~FAITH~

Faith gets me up,
When I am feeling down.

Faith takes my frown,

And just turn it around.

Faith keeps me believing,
For the victory;

Because Faith has a substance,

That my eyes cannot see.

God Is Restoring.

I have no fond memories of my childhood days. But I can still remember those lessons of Faith, Hope and Love from my Sunday school classes. Today I am eternally grateful for the treasure that God placed in this earthen vessel that no darkness could destroy! I am thankful that God did not allowed the pain of my past to interrupt the joy of my future. For even in this dispensation of time He is working on restoring my life to His original intent! Amen.


~Lord Thank You~

Lord, thank you for your steadfast love,
And the mercy; 

That You have shown me,

From heaven up above.

Lord, thank You for Your precious Son,

And the Mighty things;

That He has done.

Lord, thank You for Your amazing grace,

And another day to wake up; 

And give You praise.

NEW HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS.

In this season

In this season of life we have to be willing to quickly change our mindset and shift our direction. We can no longer depend upon our old ways and pathways. For God is creating new highways and byways that will lead us safely into our divine destiny. However most of us would rather choose the familiar HIGHWAY over the forgotten BYWAY. For the byway according to Cambridge English Dictionary is “a small road that not many cars or people travel on.” But in this dispensation of time, I would rather be on God’s byway going SOMEWHERE than on man’s highway heading NOWHERE! Psalms 32:8 is a comfort and a reminder that God knows the best pathway that we should take and His GPS will lead us safely to our destination.Choose wisely! SELAH.


         NEW

New portals are open,
From the Words God has spoken.

New rivers of blessings,

From the things we are confessing.

New manna from heaven,

Just like seventy times seven.

New highway’s and byway’s,

It’s time to go God’s way.
