STAND FIRM.

Whether we believe it or not, there is an invisible war that humanity is fighting. We have a real enemy. He is daily knocking at our door. He wants to get in and take control. His name is the devil. His plot is to kill, steal and destroy. (John 10:10). But hallelujah, there is a lamb in the House! His blood is on the doorpost. His name is Jesus. He has a plan! “It is for good, not for evil, to give us a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Our role is to:

1. Simply accept God’s good plan of Salvation John 3:16 

2. Walk in the good works that He has prepared for us before the foundation of the world. Eph 2:10

3. Continue to pray and give thanks

And even if the ground that we are standing on feels like it is shifting, We can still STAND FIRM! For as a believer, we will never lose our footing, and God will never lose His head.

Love Is The Link.

Today Count It All Joy is keeping Hope alive by praying for peace and love to prevail in our nation and around the world.                

                          
                          ~The Link~

We don’t need to see any more mass destruction,

Lord, let us see Your power and Your resurrection!

We don’t need to see anymore fighting and debates,

Lord, help us to bury the violence and the hate.

We don’t need to see anymore division and mistrust,

Lord, help us to hold  fast to the link that unites us.

#LoveIsTheLink

A Time.

We do not have to look too far to see and hear that this world is in great turmoil. 

The daily conversations and breaking headline news is enough to leave us feeling emotionally drained, helpless and hopeless. But our true strength, provision and protection does not come from man. It comes from the One who created the universe, put the stars in place and gave us life! The word of The Almighty declares that, “No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.” Psalms 33:16-19 NKJV. 

This is a time for reflection! It is a time to repent! It is a time to look into the Eyes of Perfect Love and ask for mercy! http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781498488341&HC_ISBN=

It is a time to take inventory of our lives and acknowledge that it is not our military strength, money, education, or any social status that is going to save us. #Jesus saves! John 3:16
        

                ~A TIME~

It’s a time to review the beatitudes,
It’s a time to form some new attitudes.

It’s a time to change from what’s bad to good,

It’s a time to do what you know you should.

It’s a time to lay aside the heavy weights,

It’s a time to chose Christ,

And the narrow gate.

Midnight Prayer.

Apart from momentary help, Prayer is the most humble thing that we can offer in the path of the storm!  “Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.” Psalms 107:28-29 NKJV

           ~In The Path~

Lord, for those who have been caught,
In the path of the storm;

I ask for Your angelic assistance,

To bring peace and calm.

Lord, for those who are homeless,
And left without hope;

I pray that You would give courage,

And help them to cope.

Lord, for those who feel helpless,
With no place to turn;

I pray that they find grace and mercy,

At the seat of Your Throne!

God Bless America.

The words of the American Constitution are beautiful when read in it’s unvarnished state. “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 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.

🇺🇸Let us pledge to honor and preserve freedom and true Liberty for all people.

Happy Fourth. #AndMayTheTrueForceBeWithYou!

ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

Lord, we are living daily in a hostile environment. I am so tired of HEARING and SEEING evil all around me. I have had ENOUGH of our frail humanity! Lord, I need to SEE more of Your MIGHTY POWER. I need to SEE your HANDS! Lord, I am crying out for HELP! For, “You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms; With you I will break in pieces the horse and its rider; With you I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider;”Jeremiah 51:20-21 NKJV. 

#SomethingsOnlyGodCanDo!
            
               
            ~NOW LORD~

Now Lord, let me see Your Mighty power,

In this dispensation and this critical hour.

Lord, let me see your outstretched hands,

And destroy every work;

That is not part of your plans.

Lord, let me see your amazing grace,

And give me the courage to endure;

And stay strong in the race.

MOTHER’S DAY.

As Mother’s we spend so much time shaping live’s that we hardly have anytime for our own live’s to take form. So today, go ahead and Pamper yourself! Consider incorporating a little essential oil from Young Living and ordering an inspirational book from the Count It All Joy collection. http://www.count-it-joy.com/collections/inspirational-books.

As you move forward, be sure that you are addressing the condition of your own soul. Seek out a platform where you can meet to receive spiritual, emotional, physical and emotional support. Remember that your value goes beyond the traditional role of Wife, Mother, Sister, Daughter, etc.

This poem is written just for you. So count up all of your Blessings today and have a Happy Mother’s Day!

       

        🌹MOTHER’S DAY🌹

Everyday is really Mother’s Day,

But as a women;

You hardly have any time to play.

There are daily duties and errands,

That you must run;

And there is never a time,

When you can ever say ‘DONE.’

But as a woman you are the greatest CEO,

For you are building the greatest dynasty;

And you are making a great mark on history!

Jesus Is Able.

Day # 87: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy. 

I am Counting It All Joy this morning that  Jesus will never let me fall.

When we are feeling weak there is always someone we can depend upon for Supernatural strength! If you woke up this morning, you can lean upon Jesus. You can be thankful “To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” Jude 1:24-25 NIV

    
       

       ~Jesus Will~

Jesus will prop you up,

When you are feeling weak.

And your Spirit, soul and body,

He will faithfully keep!
Jesus will prop you up,

When you are leaning low.

And He will lead you on the path,

Where He knows you should go.

Joyce A. Boahene© 5/10/17

A Lesson On Perseverance.

Day # 86: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

I am not sure what possessed me to take on a 31 Day’s water Challenge when I am still working  on Day # 86 of my 100 Day’s challenge of Counting It All Joy!  

The irony of this whole idea is that H2O has never been a friend of mine! I believe my hatred for this chemical formula began with my difficulty in college to complete chemistry as a requirement for my Nursing degree. There are two “H “atoms and one “O” in these water molecules. Honestly, my understanding of H and O meant “Hold On.” And that is exactly what I did in Chemistry and what I was doing in taking on  this 8 glasses a day water challenge with my essential oils from Young Living. So I completed 6 glasses the first day. On the second day I reached 8 glasses and was excited that no one had to come and rescue me from drowning! But after celebrating my success of 8 glasses I found myself challenged by rainy days, a leaking roof and unexpected financial bills. However, I heard my head singing that old lyrics, “NOTHING is going to break my stride, I’ve got to keep on moving.” In the midst of all of this chaos I was still determined to run to the store to replenish my supply of water. And by the way, I had to give my cashier who was very curious about my purchase of so much water a lesson on perseverance in the midst of distractions. Unfortunately, I was not able to drink from the waterfall that was coming from my kitchen ceiling! But this Sassy Bee was going to find a way to continue to drink herself  happy and finish her water challenge. Gid-dy up girl! #I’mStillDrinking!

Join me on this 31 Day’s water challenge and Cuddle up with this bestseller, “The Eyes of Perfect Love.”

http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781498488341&HC_ISBN=

And don’t forget to Choose an aroma of your favorite essential oils.
      

     ~I’ve Got~

I’ve got a tiny bottle,

That is filled with joy.

I’ve got a new best seller,

That is now my favorite toy!
I’ve got a new attitude,

And I will not Quit;

Because there’s a better way of living,

And I’ve got to find it!

Joyce A. Boahene© 5/8//17

      

HE GOT UP.

I am Counting It All Joy this morning because “I Got Up, I’m Still Breathing, I’m Not Bleeding, I’m Not In Pain, I’m in My Right Mind and I Have Peace With God!” I am mindful of the fact that all of this is made possible because JESUS GOT UP from the grave and is now reigning victoriously in my life.  

He did not just get up for me or a few…… He got up for all of humanity! SO BELIEVE and RECEIVE THE SON! “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). I am sooo………thankful that HE GOT UP! #HappyResurrectionSunday!
   

  ~HE GOT UP~

Because He GOT UP,

We don’t have to stay down.

And whatever circumstances we are facing, 

He can turn it around.

Because HE GOT UP, 

We don’t have to stay down;

For He has arisen victoriously-

And given us His crown!

Joyce A. Boahene© 3/22/17
