ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

Lord, we are living daily in a hostile environment. I am so tired of HEARING and SEEING evil all around me. I have had ENOUGH of our frail humanity! Lord, I need to SEE more of Your MIGHTY POWER. I need to SEE your HANDS! Lord, I am crying out for HELP! For, “You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms; With you I will break in pieces the horse and its rider; With you I will break in pieces the chariot and its rider;”Jeremiah 51:20-21 NKJV. 

#SomethingsOnlyGodCanDo!
            
               
            ~NOW LORD~

Now Lord, let me see Your Mighty power,

In this dispensation and this critical hour.

Lord, let me see your outstretched hands,

And destroy every work;

That is not part of your plans.

Lord, let me see your amazing grace,

And give me the courage to endure;

And stay strong in the race.

Jesus Is Able.

Day # 87: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy. 

I am Counting It All Joy this morning that  Jesus will never let me fall.

When we are feeling weak there is always someone we can depend upon for Supernatural strength! If you woke up this morning, you can lean upon Jesus. You can be thankful “To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” Jude 1:24-25 NIV

    
       

       ~Jesus Will~

Jesus will prop you up,

When you are feeling weak.

And your Spirit, soul and body,

He will faithfully keep!
Jesus will prop you up,

When you are leaning low.

And He will lead you on the path,

Where He knows you should go.

Joyce A. Boahene© 5/10/17

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!

✍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.

Lessons From Hidden Figures.

Every where I turn, I am hearing a conversation about the Movie Hidden Figures. But I am wondering  what valuable lessons have we learned after leaving the Theatre ? The movie has certainly challenged me to look around and ask, who are the hidden figures in my midst? Am I acknowledging them, or am I hindering them? Above all, am I doing everything within my power to help them reach their divine destiny. As I pondered these questions I had to pause and pray, Lord forgive me where I have been a stumbling block.

I have been reminded by this Movie not to let my race or my age define me. After all, the only race that God has ever commissioned me to run is the race of faith. And thankfully, He will never ask me to justify the color of my skin! However, He will ask me to give Him an account for the gifts, talents and resources that He has given to me. But when it comes to that forbidden question of age, I am refusing to focus on it. I am well aware that sooner or later we are all going to get old. But I am persuaded that God has a good plan for my life and He will be faithful to fulfill it. Therefore, I am just choosing to happily grow old doing what I have been called to do. And wherever I find hate and injustice, I am just going to say NOPE!

        
       ~Hidden Figures~

The hidden figure are not aliens,

That are somewhere in space.

They are everyday people.

Who are just running their race.
The Hidden Figures, 

Are just people like you and I.

And who God has created,

No one should deny.
The Hidden Figures are a message,

Of Togetherness and Hope;

And a reminder …..

That wherever we find hate and injustice,

We need to say NOPE!

Our Spoken Words.

Our spoken words often lacks truth. Yet, they have the power to influence our actions and outcomes in a negative way. Our unbridled tongue can be used to Hurt, Curse, Lie and Slander others unmercifully. With the help of the News Media, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram our Venom is now able to travel faster and Sting longer in a more sophisticated and acceptable way. We have the freedom to speak, but it is a freedom that comes with a responsibility! As individuals we are responsible for our words. We must Think before we speak, realizing that our words has the power to uplift or tear down. Even when we feel the need to correct or disagree we must do so in a way not to wound but to heal! Let us challenge ourselves today and everyday to choose our words wisely and leave an indelible mark of inspiration.
    
      

        ✍️NO TIME✍️

I have no time to criticize,

I am just lifting up my eyes.

I have no time to look back,

I am just staying on the right track.

I have no time to be bitter,

I am just vowing to get better.

I have no time to be hateful,

I am just choosing to be grateful.

 Joyce A. Boahene© 1/11/17
        

      

         

      

      

I Am Looking Back At Calvary.

The Apostle Paul said, “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV

I too believe in pressing forward for the upward calling. But today, I am compelled to pause for a moment to look back over my life and humbly thank The Lord for what He has accomplished at the Cross of Calvary. I am thankful for all of the gifts that He has given to me. But above all, I pray that I would to be a good steward of His manifold grace. (1Peter 4:10) I pray that as I reach forward to the things ahead, that my life would continue to bring honor to Him and a blessing to Society.

      

           ~I Am Looking Back~

Lord, today I am looking back at Calvary,

As a reminder of the Blood;

That You shed there for me.

Lord, I am looking back at Calvary,

As a reminder that Your body was broken for me.

Lord, I am looking back at Calvary,

As a reminder of the great price;

That You paid there for me.

Lord, I am looking back at Your nailed pierced hands,

To grasp the power of Your righteousness;

In which I now stand.

Lord, I am looking back at Calvary,

For it is a sobering reminder;

That you hung there for me!

As I Look.

Day # 66 of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy!

Today I am thankful for my Creator and His Creation!
         
      

       ~As I look~

As I look at the horizon,

There is such beauty that I see.

I see the Creator of the universe,

And His manifested gifts to earth.
I see the splendor of His Majesty,

And the awesome love that He has for me.

I see the birds in the trees, 

And the clear blue sky;


And His power and His glory I cannot deny!

God’s Creation Is So Beautiful!

God’s Creation is so beautiful! So I say to everyone who is called to lead, be careful how you handle it. And be Extra careful where you are leading us!         

                 ~IF YOU ARE~

If you are called to be an instrument of change,

In this day and this hour;

Rise up and use your talents,

But don’t abuse your power.
If you are called to be an instrument of change,

In this day and this hour;

Be sure to find those hidden treasures,

That you are destined to recover.
If you are called to be an instrument of change,

In this day and this hour;

Remember that you are the prime example,

That the future generation will have to follow.

Day # 57: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

Today I am Counting It All Joy because I am remembering the value of Special Friends. For there is power in our union and the words that we have spoken!
  

 
    ~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.

Joyce A. Boahene© 2007
         

      

         

 Thank You for your friendship!
