SPRING FORWARD.

It’s a new day that holds new possibilities! And Wisdom says that this is the perfect way to begin your day. “Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” Philippians‬ ‭4:4-9‬ ‭MSG‬‬

So Spring Forward today with a new attitude. And add this message to your favorite ☕️ and enjoy.

~SPRING FORWARD~

Spring forward today,

With a new attitude;

And keep reaching,

For a higher altitude.

Spring forward with Hope,

For a better day.

And leave someone,

With a positive dose of inspiration; 

Along the way.

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.

LORD HELP US.

It is way past midnight and my heart and prayers are going out to the families who have lost their love ones in the Florida School shooting yesterday. This tragedy happened on Valentine’s Day…. A day that was specifically set apart for celebrating love. But as we can see evil does not discriminate. It has no time frame or boundaries. It can strike anyone, at anytime and in any place. Tonight, I am praying for the comfort of those grieving families. But more than ever, I am praying for those children who are experiencing internal crisis that can one day manifest in external violence. I am also praying that our nation will understand that it is not our military might that will save us. We desperately need God’s wisdom and His ministering Angels to protect our families on a daily basis. 

 

         🙏🏽LORD HELP US🙏🏽

Lord, help us to reach this generation,
With the Gospel of salvation.

Help us to move beyond Philosophy,

And the scope of our own Theology.

Lord, help us to move beyond complacency,

To combat the present evils that we now see.

Lord, help us to move beyond our comfort zone,

To humbly seek for the wisdom;

That comes from your throne.

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!

THE GOOD SHEPHERD.

Day#90: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today as I reflect back over my life, I am Counting It All Joy for the Good Shepherd! For He has brought me through the raging storm when all hope to carry on was gone! My reasonable service is to look up and say, “THANK YOU”! and share what He has done for me, believing that He will do the same for you. These inspirational writings are my testimony of His Goodness and Mercy.

       👁When I Gazed👁

When I gazed into the eyes of my Majesty,

I say thank You Jesus for the things,

That You have done for me!

I say thank You for dying upon the Cross,

To save such a soul; 

That was broken and lost.

I say thank You for my daily provision,

And Your host of angelic protection.

I say thank You for the knowledge,

And wisdom that You give;

And for the Mercy and Grace,

That You grant me to live!

Don’t Lose Your Head.

Day # 84: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

The only crown that I desire is the crown of wisdom. For Godly wisdom will preserve me and protect my brain from the mental assaults and challenges of everyday living. The book of Proverbs says that we are to “Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.” Proverbs 4:5-9 NKJV

Today, I am getting the best workout for free! I am embracing wisdom and I am refusing to let anybody crown me and cause me to lose my head! 

               ~ Do Not~

Do not let anybody crown you,
And try to mess with your brain.

For they will give you accolades in the sunshine,

Then leave you drowning in the rain.

Do not let anybody entice you,

With their smile and their flattering words.

For you will give them the power to hurt you,

And the right to humiliate and demote you.
 

Joyce A. Boahene© 3/24/17

Fruitfulness For Your Faithfulness.

If you woke up this morning, you have something to be thankful for. You are still breathing! It is St Patrick’s Day, and you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate. And yes, you may have been endeavoring all along to do what is right and yet you see no fruit from your labor. “Be Encouraged.”For the book of all Wisdom gives us a very good reason to continue to sow seeds of goodness.“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:5-8 NIV
Wisdom is speaking loud and clear. And wisdom cannot lie! So keep on sowing. Good Things are coming your way! In time, you are going to see fruitfulness for your faithfulness! Enjoy your day and take a peek into The Eyes of Perfect Love. Available on the link below.

PRAY.

Even when there is a natural drought, you don’t have to feel dry and powerless. You can get up and do something. You can Get up and PRAY! You can pray for wisdom and follow the Eyes of Perfect Love! As you pray and depend on God, you will begin to hear the rain that is forming behind the clouds. And before you know it, you will be experiencing an abundance of His supernatural provision.
               
                
              🙏🏽PRAY🙏🏽

Pray when the answer is far out of sight,

Pray when there are wrongs;

That you want to make right.

Pray when the clouds of darkness,

Is all that you see.

Pray if you are wondering,

Will there be victory for me?

Pray like the Prophet Elijah,

Who cried out for rain;

In a time when only drought,

Was the name of the game!

Stop Throwing A Fit.

I am thankful for social media that helps us to create events, share information, voice our opinion and instantly bring us up to date with current affairs. 

However, I have discovered that:

Facebook really tries……. but cannot solve all the drama.

Instagram has a way of sharing……But some images are not appropriate.

Twitter gives a short update ……but not everyone really cares about your tweet, tweet.

And if you are not really careful, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter can cause you to throw a FIT instead of providing you with any real solution.

But God’s ears are always open to our cry! “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.” Psalms 145:18-19 NKJV

#SoLetUsStopThrowingAFit!

          On

Facebook….F 
Instagram .. I 
Twitter…….. T

And today, as you reflect on the tragedy of 911, I pray that you would join me in asking God for healing for this generation.

~LORD~

Reach out and touch this generation,

With your healing and salvation.

Give them the true vision to which they are called, 

And anchor them securely so that they won’t fall.
Lord, tear down the walls of hatred and separation,

And bring peace and reconciliation.

Lord,bring comfort to the hurting hearts,

And the lives who are crushed and torn apart.

Lord, give them a reverential fear,

And close the doors to deception and despair.

Lord, give them sound wisdom that comes from on high.

And bend down your ears to the voice of their cry.

Joyce A. Boahene© 9/11/16

Day # 62: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

These are the things I CHERISH. Today I am Counting It All Joy for LIFE, SALVATION, WISDOM, FAMILY, FRIENDS and GOOD CONVERSATIONS!

No matter how strong you think you are, sometimes your humanity can really get to you and leave you feeling vulnerable. My heart of compassion recently took me on a very ‘SHORT TRIP.’ When I came to myself, I was not on a resort Island. I found myself in a FOG. And it was not spelling ‘FAVOR OF GOD!’ There I was tripping on my emotions and sipping on the news media!

No wonder the book of Proverbs says to “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech.” Proverbs 4:23-24 NLT
Today, I am so thankful to God for the book of wisdom. For it has brought me back from that dark night of the soul and reminded me that I have a purpose and I am here to make a difference. It has helped me to realize that I cannot change the times in which I am living and I cannot fix the world problems. However, I can pray and continue to sow seeds of kindness wherever I go. Above all, I am learning not to react to what I see, feel and hear. Instead I am choosing to respond to the problems of the day with a kind word and leave others with a positive dose of inspiration.

~I Am Mounting Up~

I am mounting up,

From the valley below;

To soar for the heights,

Where God wants me to go.

I am mounting up with eagle’s wings,

Amid the pain and the trials;

That this life may bring.

I am mounting up with a song of praise ,

As I honor my Savior in all of my ways.

I am mounting up to give help to another,

As I care for the needs of my sisters and brothers.

Joyce A. Boahene© 2007
