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!

I AM AMAZED.

Day # 81: Of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

After I committed to take this 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy, I wanted to put my foot in my mouth and leave it there! For within that period of time it seemed that I had more reasons to cry than I did to rejoice! However, I am now 3/4 of the way in fulfilling my challenge. But as I look back over my life, I am amazed at how God took a broken girl from a remote land,  groomed her and  gave her an identity and a purpose. He has given me His love without reserved and He has blessed me with gifts that I have not earned. I am amazed by His willingness to lay down His life for fallen humanity. I am amazed that we can enjoy the life and breath that He gives and still deny His existence! I am even more amazed that He still shows His love and mercy to those who openly blaspheme His name and deny His existence. 

During this season of LENT, Romans 5: 7-8 (NLT) is a sober reminder of Jesus Life, Suffering, Death, Burial, and Resurrection. “Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:7-8 NLT).  The only  reasonable response from this grateful heart and Count It All Joy Inspirational Company during LENT is thank you Lord for your sacrifice!

  ~From The Cross~

From the Cross,
We can experience Pentecost.

For it brought Hope for the wounded,

And Salvation for the lost.

From the Cross,

We have total Victory,

Because Jesus shed His blood;

For you and me!

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!

I Am Here.

Day # 76: Of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today, I am returning to my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy. I am renewing my hopes and dreams by remembering why I am still here. I am here because my life matters to God! I am here to discover my true value, purpose and identity through the Eyes of Perfect Love. I am here to be a blessing to my family, friends and vocation. I am here to use my pen to encourage, uplift and leave an indelible mark. I am here to sow seeds of goodness and watch as they grow. Above all, I am here to be a true servant of Jesus Christ!
    
           
        ~Seeds of Goodness~

I am planting seeds of goodness,

And watch as they grow;

For they’ll soon spring up before you know!

I am starting out with love for everyone,

Never counting the score for the wrongs they have done.

I am adding an element of joy,

Instead of a desire to hurt and destroy .

I am offering up peace instead of war,

In the midst of life’s conflicts and uproar.

I am exercising patience through the storm,

And I am seeking to lend an extended arm.

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.

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.

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!

Day # 50: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

I have made it to Day # 50 of my 100 Days of Counting It All Joy. I am Counting It All Joy because I have the power to use my Freedom to do Good instead of Evil.

Whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, evil exist among us every day, in every way ,and in every culture.Throughout history man has been known to fight against the GOLDEN RULE which is simply doing unto others as you would have them do to you. In the midst of our highly technological society we have become very skilled at ignoring the voice of our conscience and have chosen to turn a deafening ear to the cry for TRUTH and JUSTICE. Perhaps what our society really need today are not more TOYS, but some MANDATORY lessons that reminds us of the value of life and the perils of evil.

                 ~We Are Free~

We are free to fight against the Golden Rules,

And treat them like some useless tools.

We are free to turn a deafening ear,

To the cry for truth and justice that we hear.
We are free to make excuses, 

For our old habits and abuses.

We are free to blame another one,

For the very wrongs that we have done.

We are free to make wrong choices,

But we are never free;

To choose the cost or the consequences.

And cause the heavens to thunder;

When I cry out to You.
