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!

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

Day #89: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy. Today, I am Counting It All Joy that nothing is impossible with God!

In conversation with someone, I verbalized my desire to achieve a certain GOAL.I was not talking about climbing Mount Everest or running a marathon. I was simply desiring to improve the quality of my life in a certain area. But I was told emphatically, “It can’t be done!” But I say NOTHING is impossible with God. For His strength will always enable me to overcome my weaknesses. This persons negative remark  actually caught me by surprise. But it has also served as a sober reminder that you have to guard your heart from the DREAM KILLERS and NAYSAYERS! They are TOXIC and they are EVERYWHERE!

 ~Nothing Is Impossible~

When somebody tells me,
“It can’t be done!”

I tell them that nothing is impossible under the sun.

For God has already won my victory,

And His Goodness and Mercy;

I know I will see!
When somebody tells me,

“It can’t be done!”

They have given me an incentive,

For the next mile;

That I am getting ready to run.

A simple lesson on Survival….. Trust God, and don’t you worry!
    

                                                   ~DON’T  YOU WORRY~

Don’t you be in a hurry,
And don’t you worry;

For life is more than just food,

And it’s not about money!

Don’t you be in a hurry,

And don’t you worry;

For life is not about clothing,

Or the stocks that you are holding!

Don’t you be in a hurry,
And don’t you worry;

For life is more than just drinking,

Or the vain thoughts that you are thinking !

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!

✍Daughters Of Destiny✍

We are the three daughters of destiny,

And there is more depth to our lives;

Than what you can see.

We are the three daughters of destiny,

And we are writing some new pages in history.

We are the threefold cord,

That is not easily broken;

For there is power in our union,

And the words that we have spoken.

Joyce A. Boahene© 1/24/17

A Life Of Faith.

Day # 63: Of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today I am reminding myself why I can Count It All Joy in spite of what is going on in the world. I am Counting It All Joy because the only Hope that I have in winning the war on evil is trusting God and living a life of Faith!

    ~MY HEARTFELT 🙏🏽~

Lord, let not my ❤️be troubled,
By the evil that I see 👀.

And let me not get caught up in the fight,

But help me to🏃🏿walk daily;

In Your love and Your perfect💡light.

Lord, when I pray let me have what I believe, 

And let me not be ignorant or be deceived.

Lord, let me not cast away my confidence,

For You are my Hope and my only strong defense.

Day # 62: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

These are the things I CHERISH. Today I am Counting It All Joy for LIFE, SALVATION, WISDOM, FAMILY, FRIENDS and GOOD CONVERSATIONS!

No matter how strong you think you are, sometimes your humanity can really get to you and leave you feeling vulnerable. My heart of compassion recently took me on a very ‘SHORT TRIP.’ When I came to myself, I was not on a resort Island. I found myself in a FOG. And it was not spelling ‘FAVOR OF GOD!’ There I was tripping on my emotions and sipping on the news media!

No wonder the book of Proverbs says to “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech.” Proverbs 4:23-24 NLT
Today, I am so thankful to God for the book of wisdom. For it has brought me back from that dark night of the soul and reminded me that I have a purpose and I am here to make a difference. It has helped me to realize that I cannot change the times in which I am living and I cannot fix the world problems. However, I can pray and continue to sow seeds of kindness wherever I go. Above all, I am learning not to react to what I see, feel and hear. Instead I am choosing to respond to the problems of the day with a kind word and leave others with a positive dose of inspiration.

~I Am Mounting Up~

I am 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.

GOD BLESS AMERICA.

I am on Day # 60 of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy, and it is Independence Day!

I am Counting It All Joy today as I Celebrate Independence Day. For I realize that I am living in a Country where I can experience certain rights and privileges but never without taking responsibility and accountability. Independence is not my license to say or do whatever I please. It is rather a sober reminder and a charge to maintain the principles upon which our Nation was built. “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.” Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776, ME 1:29 Papers 1:315 

The idea of this basic principle of equality was never intended to change between Then and Now! Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word Unalienable as ” impossible to take away or give up.” So as we gather all across this nation to celebrate this special holiday, let us remember the heart and words of our founding fathers. Let us endeavor to never oppress or take away basic human rights. Let us walk in love with one another. Let us pursue peace. But above all, let us daily use our freedom to serve humanity and always do unto others as we would have them do unto us.

HAPPY 4TH.#LifeLibertyAndThePursuitOfHappiness!
