God Bless America.

Independence Day is more than just fireworks, family reunion, barbecues, concerts, picnics or parades. It is about understanding, appreciating and continuing to uphold the principles of human rights. The words that were set forth in the Declaration of Independence are still applicable for today! “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 continue to 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.

🇺🇸Above all let us pledge to HONOR and PRESERVE FREEDOM and true LIBERTY for all people.
Happy Fourth. #AndMayTheMighty Force Be WithYou!

STAY ANCHORED.

If you love God and follow after His heart you cannot lose!

“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.””

I Corinthians 2:9 NKJV.

God has a good plan for your existence. His plan goes above and beyond anything that you can imagine or asked of Him. He is FAITHFUL to bring His promises to pass regardless of your past or present station in life. So dare to ask Him to reveal the plan and let Him lead you one step at a time. And while you are on your journey, remember to resist the temptation to compromise. Remain Faithful. Do not grow weary. Do not settle for less. Stay anchored and hold on to God’s very best.

He Saved Me.

I remember when my night was so dark and I had no light for the day. But just before hopelessness tried to engulfed me….. Jesus reached out His hands and saved me from the pit. “Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.” Romans‬ ‭5:6-8‬ ‭MSG‬‬

I am humbled by Jesus love and His selfless act! I honor and celebrate His glorious resurrection. Because He got up I don’t ever have to stay down! And what ever circumstances that I encounter in this life … I know that He will always turn it around.

     ~I Am Thankful~
 

I am thankful for the little things,
And the ray of Sunshine ;

That life brings.

I am thankful for the rising sun,

And the Mighty Things;

That God has done.

I am thankful for His protection,

And His daily source of provision.

I am thankful for the Throne of grace,

Where I can daily meet with my Savior;

Face to Face!

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 Restoring.

I have no fond memories of my childhood days. But I can still remember those lessons of Faith, Hope and Love from my Sunday school classes. Today I am eternally grateful for the treasure that God placed in this earthen vessel that no darkness could destroy! I am thankful that God did not allowed the pain of my past to interrupt the joy of my future. For even in this dispensation of time He is working on restoring my life to His original intent! Amen.


~Lord Thank You~

Lord, thank you for your steadfast love,
And the mercy; 

That You have shown me,

From heaven up above.

Lord, thank You for Your precious Son,

And the Mighty things;

That He has done.

Lord, thank You for Your amazing grace,

And another day to wake up; 

And give You praise.

Rise & Shine.

Unity is everybody’s responsibility….. So Rise and Shine and give hate, war and crime a WHACK!

~RISE & SHINE~

Rise and shine,

And let love be your sign.

For it is a balm that will bring

Healing,

In this critical time.

Rise and shine,

And show Love to the world,

For that is something far

Greater,

Than hate, war and crime.

God Loved Us First.

It is the month of Valentines….. And love is in the air! But while some of us may have found love, others may have lost it in the battles of life…. But let us choose not to become offended with God for the things we have suffered. Rather, let us move beyond the rubble and look into the Eyes Of Perfect Love realizing that God first loved us! Here is the biblical example of true Love. “God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first.” 1 John 4:17-19 MSG
Let us be thankful for the daily blessings that God bestows upon us. But let us remember that love is not about Stuff that is only temporary. For all of the material things that we accumulate, celebrate and hold so dear apart from Him are all just vanity. God is the giver and sustainer of our lives….. For unless He breathes His breath in us we have no life! He is the Light in the darkness. He is still the One who opens blind eyes, cause the lame to walk, cleansed the lepers, cause the deaf to hear, raised the dead and reveals the good news of the gospel.

May we all receive Him as our first Valentine. And let us count ourselves blessed that even in our pain, disappointments and brokenness…….the God of heaven has committed Himself to love us for all of eternity. Truly God is for us and never against us. SELAH! Happy Valentines

Happy Birthday Jesus.

Day # 97: Of My 100 Day’s Of Counting It All Joy.

It is Christmas morning. But I am not looking for anything under a Pine tree! After all, it is Jesus Birthday, and not mine! And anyway , all the STUFF that we keep accumulating from year to year is only TEMPORARY! But Faith, Hope and Love are the gifts of God’s Son that are ETERNAL!

I am Counting It All Joy that because of Jesus I am STILL BREATHING! I am thankful that I don’t have to worry about tomorrow. For the scripture reminds me that He will remain Wonderful,Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. So today I am celebrating Jesus birth! And I am going to embrace 2018 with Joy knowing that our government will be upon His shoulder and not mine!

Merry Christmas to all! And may you and your family experience the true meaning of Christ birth. John 3:16

Love Is The Link.

Today Count It All Joy is keeping Hope alive by praying for peace and love to prevail in our nation and around the world.                

                          
                          ~The Link~

We don’t need to see any more mass destruction,

Lord, let us see Your power and Your resurrection!

We don’t need to see anymore fighting and debates,

Lord, help us to bury the violence and the hate.

We don’t need to see anymore division and mistrust,

Lord, help us to hold  fast to the link that unites us.

#LoveIsTheLink
