The Gifts And Calling.

Day # 85: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today I am Counting It All Joy for the gifts and calling of God. I am thankful that He never withhold or recall His gifts. I Pray that I would be faithful to His call and continue to be a good steward of His manifold gifts. I pray that my life would truly be a reflection of His character and His glory in the earth. 

    
     ~HE IS~

He is the cup, 
That is overflowing. 

He is the love,

That just keep on growing.
He is the hand,

That is always extended.

He is the One

Who rose up and ascended.
He is the hope,

For a brighter tomorrow.

He is the One who adds wealth ,

With no sorrow!

Women’s Day.

Every day is women’s day because we wear so many hats. There are no insignificant role of a woman! Whether you are a Homemaker or work in the Market Place, you are a valuable person and a great contributor to our society.

Today, I celebrate you my sisters from every walk of life! We are all women of God’s Creation! We are all sisters in the struggle of life. We are all daughters of destiny. We have been called to make a positive mark on history not only in what we say but what we do on a daily basis.

I am using what I have to create what I want. I am using my pen as an instrument for good. With my creative writings, I am able to produce products that are inspired by Faith, perfected by Design, Functional and Stylish. http://www.count-it-joy.com

As we move forward,I encourage you to use your gifts. Let us continue to work together, support one another, impact our world and leave an indelible mark!

   šŸ„€~Sisters In The Struggle~šŸ„€

We are true sisters in the struggle,

And the fight for our cause will never be forgotten.

We are true sisters in the struggle,

For we have overcome many a silent battles. 
We are true sisters in the struggle,

We are a voice for today,

And a light for tomorrow.

We are true sisters in the struggle, 

We are an example for the future generations to follow.
We are true sisters with a mission, 

And we must endeavor to fulfill our God given vision.

We are true sisters in the struggle,

And we must carefully weigh every thought and decision.
We are true sisters with a purpose,

And we must maintain our stand and our focus.

We are true sisters in the struggle,

But the reward for our pain will surely be doubled.

Faith, Hope, Love.

ā€œThree things will last foreverā€”faith, hope, and loveā€”and the greatest of these is love.ā€ 1 Corinthians 13:13 NLT

This scriptures tells us that no matter how much we accumulate in this life, there are only three things that will have any lasting value. Faith, Hope and Love are three things that cannot be bought with silver or gold! For these are God-given gifts to fallen humanity. 

Wisdom says that it is time to pause and take inventory of the treasures that we are laying up here on earth. Then we must turn and look to The Eyes of Perfect Love and allow Him to fill our treasure boxes  with His eternal gifts of Faith, Hope and Love.

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.

As I Look.

Day # 66 of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy!

Today I am thankful for my Creator and His Creation!
         
      

       ~As I look~

As I look at the horizon,

There is such beauty that I see.

I see the Creator of the universe,

And His manifested gifts to earth.
I see the splendor of His Majesty,

And the awesome love that He has for me.

I see the birds in the trees, 

And the clear blue sky;


And His power and His glory I cannot deny!

Day # 28: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

I can Count It All Joy because Jesus is in the deep.

It is difficult to step out on a limb without the assurance that somebody is going to catch you. It is even more difficult to launch out further into the deep when you have been fishing all night without a catch. But it is at that very moment when you are weary and feeling defeated that Jesus steps on the scene and says, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.ā€ Luke 5:4 NKJV
You really want to laugh out loud! But nevertheless in obedience you say, ” If You say so!” Then all of a sudden your nets are breaking because you are catching more fish in a moment than you have done in a night. That’s just like Jesus! Sometimes He will call you to do the most incredible things In the most difficult moments!

Remember this, it is not our gifts, talents, efforts or good works that pleases Him. It is simply our SURRENDER! So next time you go fishing let it be for the souls of men who are still broken and living in captivity. And remember these words from Simon one of the the greatest fisherman. “Nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” Luke 5: 5 NKJV

Here is a love note from God!

                                                  

                                 

                                     ~Keep Walking~
                               

                               Keep walking on the water,

                               For you will not sink;

                               For your faith is so much stronger,

                               And you are further than you think!

                               Keep casting your nets,

                               For I am the keeper of the watch;

                              And the hand is clearly stating,

                              That you are in for a catch!
                              A fishing and a catching,

                              For the souls of men;

                              With my power and anointing,

                              For the broken to mend

Visible To God

There are times when you might seem invisible to others, but you are always visible to God.You have probably heard of the biblical story of David who slew the giant Goliath with a sling and a stone.But did you know that he grew up in aĀ household that did not esteem his true value?To his immediate family he was just a lowly shepherd boy. Yet in hisĀ seemingly insignificant role his leadership ability was continually been developed through his love, faithfulness and patience in caring for the sheep.It was in that role of a shepherd where he first killed a lion and a bear who came to take a lamb out of the flock.Ā 

David may have appeared hidden, but in the mind and heart of God he was just training for reigning. History does not describe David as a perfect man but as a man who had a heart to please God. He was able to prevail over the many enemies that he faced throughout his life because he understood his true need for God’s love, forgiveness and help.
Ā 
What matters most to God is not our level of education, achievements, outer appearance or physical stature.What really matters is the genuineness of our hearts and our utter dependence on Him as the ‘Giver and Sustainer’ of life.

Like David, God has also ordained something special for each and everyone of us.Ā He has chosen to create us in a unique way. We are a priceless gem. We have been given many gifts and abilities. Those gifts and abilities are to be used to bless others and represent God in the earth. It does not matter where we find ourselves in this season of life. We can still choose to be thankful! And we must continue to be faithful knowing that our labor is not in vain.And even if weĀ are experiencing signs and symptoms of isolation, rejection and separation, Ā let us remember that God is with us. And above all, that He might secretly be grooming us to become a giant killer!

Humility

Day # 20: Today, you can be thankful for a heart of Humility.

Great men never fail because they lack ability. They are usually brought down low because of their lack of character and the big (P) ‘PRIDE.’ Pride is that attitude that puffs us up and make us feel that we are more important than others.But it is foolish to ever boast about any of our gifts, talents, education or possessions. For when we do, we are elevating ourselves and not giving HONOR to the Greater One who gave us the ability to get them. Whatever good we are outwardly manifesting is only a result of what our Creator has generously placed on the inside of us. The gifts that He has given to us will ultimately make room for display and cause us to be acknowledged before great men. But when we take the credit and brag about our ‘Success’,we are opening the door to the deadly venom of PRIDE! And pride will gladly set us up and wait for us to FALL!

~Never Let Me~

Lord, never let me make my boast,
In anything that I have done.
But let my boast be in the Cross,
And the Great Victory that You have won.
Lord, never let me make my boast,
In anything made of this world;
But let me humbly draw my strength,
From the Lord and Savior of my soul.

In Due Time

Day # 5: Today, you can be thankful for your Mustard Seed Faith.

Today presents a new opportunity to use your gifts and resources to bless and serve humanity. Your gifts and talents may seem small as a mustard seed. Your hard labor may even go unnoticed to the very ones that you are helping. But your mustard seed faith when planted and watered has the potential to grow up and become a giant plant. So do not grow weary in doing good. ‘CONTINUE ‘ to sow. For in due time you will surely reap a harvest!

~I Am Mounting Up~

I’m mounting up from the valley below,
To soar for the heights where God wants me to go.
I am mounting up with eagle’s wings,
Amid the pain and the trials;
That this life may bring.
I am mounting up with a song of praise,
As I honor my Savior in all of my ways.
I am mounting up to give help to another,
As I care for the needs of my sisters and brothers.
