His Light

Day # 95: Of My 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

When life feels like a pressure cooker and I am wondering what on earth is going on, the message bible gives me the perfect answer. Don’t be naive, you are living in difficult times. “But don’t let it faze you.” Stick with what you learned and believed, sure of the integrity of your teachers—why, you took in the sacred Scriptures with your mother’s milk! There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5, 14-17 MSG

Today I am Counting It All Joy that God has given me everything that I need to navigate the journey of my life.

                    

       ~His Light~

I don’t have to be afraid,

Or be deceived;

For God has given me His Holy Word,

And I do believe!
I don’t have to walk in the darkness,

For God has given me His light;

So I can live by His daily wisdom,

And endeavor to do what is right!

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!

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.

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!

Spring is really a great time to take inventory and declutter your life. It is a time to ditch the burdens or heavy loads that you have carried through the winter months. So relax.

Let the forthcoming daylight lend a ray of hope that you can once again tackle and complete those unfinished task on your TO DO LIST. So go ahead and move forward with joy!

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.

Joyce A. Boahene© 9/26/16

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.
