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.

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.

My Spiritual Eyes.

Day # 73 of my 100 Days Challenge of Counting It All Joy. 

Today I am Thankful for my second pair of eyes. I am thankful that I can look beyond the seen things that are temporary to the unseen things that are eternal. I am thankful that I am not moved by what I see , feel and hear. I am thankful that faith has made it possible for me to Count It All Joy by living from my spiritual position and not the natural condition of this world.#FaithHasEyes!

  

       ~My Spiritual Eyes ~

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

That Jesus Christ has set me totally free.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

The ultimate price that He paid upon Calvary.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

The host of Heaven’s army and artillery.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

That His angels has been assigned to care for me.

My spiritual eyes are opened wide to see,

That the enemy has no more dominion over me.

Not In Vain.

I am back to Day # 65 of my 100 Days challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today, I am thankful that my life is a poem that is written by God. I am thankful that He has also given me the pen of a ready writer. I am thankful that there are divine moments when He allows me to capture what is on His heart. Through it all, I can truly say that my suffering has not been in vain!

     ~My Suffering~

My suffering was not in vain,

For God saw the great glory

That would come from my pain.
My suffering was not in vain,

For God gave me a Savior;

And He covered my shame.
My suffering was not in vain,

For to wound and afflict me;

Was never His aim!

~I Tell God~

I tell God each day when I start,
How much I thank Him from my heart.
I thank Him for His endless love ,
That He has bestowed to me from above.

I thank him for His precious Son,
And for the race that He helps me to run.
I thank Him for the Comforter,
That soothes my heart like no other.

I thank Him that He understands,
And for always stretching out His hands.
I thank Him that He fights my fears,
As He walks with me through all of my tears.

I thank Him that through every tide,
He is always present at my side.
I thank Him that He won’t let me go,
When I stumble and I feel so low.

I thank Him that He is forevermore,
The strength through which I can endure.

Count Your Blessings

Day # 22: Today, you can be thankful for the little things.

In life we tend to spend more time focusing on what we don’t have instead of appreciating the little things that we do have. I grew up on a tiny Island in the Caribbean under very poor social and economical conditions. The only food that we consumed was what we planted. All we ever knew was the hard physical labor of daily working in the fields. We had no refrigerator or electricity.We had to walk barefoot for miles and miles to fetch one bucket of water. And we had to leave our little broken down shack to go to the latrine( a hole in the ground) My tiny island in Montserrat still remains a Ghost Town from the devastating volcano eruption in 1996.Yet, the most important lessons that we were taught as a child was to HONOR GOD, BE THANKFUL and BE RESPECTFUL to others. Today, these lessons are still serving me very well. I am counting my blessings and #IAmForeverGrateful!
