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

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.

Joyce A. Boahene© 4/25/18

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

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.

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.

God Is Greater.

Seasons change, people change. But the challenges that I have experienced in life has never changed who God is. As a matter of fact those difficult moments have been very humbling. In reality they have only served to magnify the greatness of God. They have  also confirmed my fallen humanity. But above all they have convinced me of my ultimate need for a true Deliverer.

         
    ~In The Midst~

In the midst of the questions,

In the midst of the pain;

The Greatness of Jehovah,

Is always the same!

In the midst of the questions,
And the endless petitions;

I will  worship my Creator,

For it is the wisest decision!

LORD HELP US.

It is way past midnight and my heart and prayers are going out to the families who have lost their love ones in the Florida School shooting yesterday. This tragedy happened on Valentine’s Day…. A day that was specifically set apart for celebrating love. But as we can see evil does not discriminate. It has no time frame or boundaries. It can strike anyone, at anytime and in any place. Tonight, I am praying for the comfort of those grieving families. But more than ever, I am praying for those children who are experiencing internal crisis that can one day manifest in external violence. I am also praying that our nation will understand that it is not our military might that will save us. We desperately need God’s wisdom and His ministering Angels to protect our families on a daily basis. 

 

         🙏🏽LORD HELP US🙏🏽

Lord, help us to reach this generation,
With the Gospel of salvation.

Help us to move beyond Philosophy,

And the scope of our own Theology.

Lord, help us to move beyond complacency,

To combat the present evils that we now see.

Lord, help us to move beyond our comfort zone,

To humbly seek for the wisdom;

That comes from your throne.

THE GOOD LIFE.

Living the GOOD LIFE is not about status. It is not about chasing after money, and it is not even all about you. It is about LOVING GOD and LOVING PEOPLE!
This scripture gives us God’s simple Recipe for LIVING THE GOOD LIFE! “Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here’s what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you’re worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he’s asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things.” 1 Peter 3:8-12 MSG

Move On With Your Life.

So often we are waiting on our abusers to come back and say ” I was wrong or I am sorry.” Unfortunately our abusers DO NOT REMEMBER. They are suffering from AMNESIA! But God has not forgotten. He is keeping the books and His account is always accurate. Ultimately He will right every wrong! But don’t spend your precious time waiting for justice. GO ON with your LIFE. TRUST GOD, continue to DO GOOD and FORGIVE!


   Make this your prayer today……  
        

      ~I Have Faith~

I have Faith in a God that I cannot see, 
I have Faith that all things will work out for me.

I have Faith to believe that He will right every wrong,

I have Faith to believe that He will keep me strong.

I have Faith to believe Christ is coming again,

And that in His reign and His kingdom there will be no end.

I have Faith to believe that his Word is enough,

And that in spite of the challenges;

I am a child that He loves!

TWENTY EIGHTEEN

Day # 96: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy.

I am Counting It All Joy that 2017 is coming to a close. My 100 Day’s Challenge Of Counting It All Joy has allowed me to give Thanks in spite of the rough terrain. Scripture encourages us to give thanks in all things! So I am giving God Thanks for His Grace and Mercy that has brought me this far. I am especially giving Thanks for the next chapter that is about to be written! Count It All Joy would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and thank you for your business and loyalty. I pray that your journey in 2018 will be a  great year filled with Love, Joy, Peace and Hope!

🔑TWENTY EIGHTEEN🔑

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

Of the OPEN DOOR.

And you have never set foot,

On this path before.

Twenty Eighteen will be marked,

By a season of STRENGTH.

So prepare to leave the past,

And start pitching a new tent.

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

Of a NEW BEGINNING.

It is abounding with Grace,

And it is a race that you are WINNING!

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

When your Faith will say Now;

And the Holy Ghost will rise up,

And show you just how!

Twenty Eighteen is the year,

Of the OPEN DOOR.

And God has declared;

That the enemies that you have known,

You will see them NO MORE!
