YES & AMEN.

Day #93: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

I am coming to the end of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy. I must admit, not everything that has happened has spelled JOY! But Joy is not a feeling. Joy is a gift that always manifest in supernatural strength! And that kind of JOY is only God-Given! 

Today I am Counting It All Joy that I can stand humbly yet boldly in God’s Presence, and contend for His promises! For where God has said “YES”, I am going to say AMEN! I am going to say AMEN to all of His promises concerning me and my family. For I declare that His WILL shall be done on earth as it is already established in heaven. AMEN!

Today , I honor my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus for my life, my family, friends, and the blessings that He daily bestows upon me.
          
       

   ~YES & AMEN~

When God’s Word says YES,

He is not talking about creating any MESS!

When God’s Word says YES,

He is really just declaring that I am BLESSED.

When God’s Word says YES,

He is not talking about peddling any STRESS.

When God’s Word says YES,

He is really just reinforcing that I should REST,

When God’s Word say YES,

He is really asking me to stand firm on His promises;

And joyfully overcome  every test!

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!

He Is Reigning With Power.

At Count It All Joy we are remembering  Jesus Life, Suffering, Death, Burial, and Glorious Resurrection.We are reminded of the fact that there was never any fault found in Him. Yet He was willing to hang on a Cross for our sake!  We are eternally grateful that God placed on His Son the penalty that we deserved for every wrong that we have done and every wrong that has ever been done to us.  “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” II Corinthians 5:21 (NKJVI)

We are thankful that He Got Up, so we don’t ever have to stay down!

        ~JESUS~

Jesus is not in a manger,
Trying to hide from some danger.

He is not just on a cross, 

Looking down at the lost;
Jesus is not in the tomb,

For there was not enough room;

To hold Him in the grave.
Jesus is the man of the hour,

For He is still reigning with power.

So look to the horizon,

For it is beginning to shower!

As For Me.

Day # 80: Of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy!

For me, this season of LENT is a sober reminder of Jesus Life, sacrifice, death, burial and resurrection! It is a time to Count up all of my blessings. It is a time to give thanks. It is a time to reflect on why I am here. It is a time to rededicate my life to His purpose and calling.

How about you? What does LENT mean to you? You can make it your most memorable time by looking into The Eyes of Perfect Love: http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781498488341&HC_ISBN=

 

💐AS FOR ME💐

For some it’s about the ashes,

And a season called Lent;

For others it’s about starting a new discipline,

And a time to repent.
For some it’s about fasting,

And for others it’s about prayer.

But frankly for a few,

They really don’t care!
As for me it’s about Jesus,

And a Christian way of living.

For I remember that His sacrifice,

Was all about love,

And a lifestyle of giving!

Somethings I cannot talk about,

But the megaphone in me always want to shout.

Somethings I cannot understand,

Like the issues of life and my Fellowman.

Somethings I cannot talk about,

But with my pen and my paper

I can write it out!

Close Friend Day.

There is a scripture that reminds us that there is a friend that sticks closer than any family member. There is no doubt that Jesus completely fits this description. However, He has also blessed us with earthly friends. Today I was reminded of close friend day by a true friend! I am thankful Lord for special friends.

Tell a friend today how much you appreciate them!

  

     ~Special Friends~

I am thankful Lord for special friends,
On who I always can depend.

The ones I may not often see,

Yet memories are still with me.

The ones who often come my way,

To listen, or to talk and pray.

The ones I know yet seldom meet,

Yet arms are open wide to greet.

The ones who answer to my call,

Who will rescue me if I should fall.

The ones who share my broken dreams,

And listen to my heartfelt screams.

The ones who bears my ups and downs,

Whose kindness seems to know no bounds.

The ones who see my need to rest,

And offers me their very best.

The ones who through life’s fuss and rush,

Still pause awhile to keep in touch.

The ones time cannot come between,

Though distance often intervene.

The ones who share a certain trust,

That stays between the both of us.

These Lord are friends who give their all,

Through winter, summer, spring or fall.

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.

Joyce A. Boahene© 9/26/16

Day #48: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

Today I can Count It All Joy because I am convinced that I am NOTHING and can do NOTHING without Him. Therefore ………..
           
    ~I Can Never Say~

I can never say that I am too busy,
To take the time to pray .

I can never say that I am too busy,

For the King of Kings today.

I can never say that I am too busy,

To take the time to sing.

For Jesus is my strength within,

And every breath begins;

And ends with Him.

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.” 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

Day #25: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

    
I can Count It All Joy because Jesus is a friend for life!

Friendship comes and friendship goes. And not all friends are reliable! The greatest book on wisdom says “He that maketh many friends doeth it to his own destruction; But there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 ASV
Love all of my friends, but at the end of the day, “I am STICKING with JESUS!”

              ~For He Is~

For He is the anchor on which I steadfast hold. 

He is the joy and comfort of my soul!

He is the Rock on which I can embark 

When the world around me seem so dark.

He is the Balm of Gilead,

He is the Greatest Friend;

That I have ever had!
 Joyce A. Boahene© 5/11/16
