The Secret Place

Psalm 91:1-2 KJV
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

How do we enter in the secret place of the most High? We say it!

The Lord is my refuge and my fortress in Him will I trust.

Speak the Word!

Be Blessed!

Mercy

Psalm 62:12

King James Version (KJV)

12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

Thank God for His mercy.  We would I be without it? Mmmm, maybe not in a good place or further behind in my purpose for here on earth.

Mercy is defined as a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion, a fortunate circumstance.

Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery because they were jealous and God showed him mercy and gave him favor in the sight of Potiphar. Potiphar  made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.  This is God making what the devil meant for evil for good.  Joseph was well favored.

Joseph was handsome and Potiphar’s wife wanted to lie with him.  Now why does this women who has all that she wants, want to lie with Joseph?  That is another story in itself, I will not go there.  Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce Joseph. He refuses her and runs away.  In his haste, he does not pull his garment from Potiphar’s wife ‘s hand and he leaves behind his garment.  Here is what she did.

16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: 18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. 19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

God again showed Joseph mercy and He gives him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.  What the devil meant for evil, God made it for good.  God set the devil up.  The devil thought Joseph would not succeed and through these adverse circumstances Joseph learned and was being groomed for God’s purpose.

What can one learn from the story of Joseph? No matter what the cost, stand firm for God and He will bless you for doing His will. Also,for being on God’s side, you will be blessed even though the circumstances do not look good.

Be Blessed!

Qualified

 

I Corinthians  9:26-27 English Standard King James 
26) Therefore I run thus;not with certainty. Thus I fight:not as one who beats the air. 27) But, I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.

Everyday I rise with a choice to put my best foot forward in all things or just do nothing. What does nothing bring? Nothing! At work my job performance and leading would be meaningless. If I did nothing, I would be disqualified. My role as a mother and wife, would have no fruit. How can I represent my husband and my children if I did nothing. Really? No cooking, no cleaning, no washing, no working, no helping with homework, no listening to the children’s problems or questions, no listening to my husband, just eating, sleeping and making a mess. Who can I lead  if I do nothing? Who can I help if I do nothing?

What does putting my best foot forward bring? It brings peace of mind, satisfaction, a sense of accomplishment, laughter, a happy home and enjoying work. Disciplining oneself to stay on task, completing what is required, listening and helping is a positive output. One is representing themselves as leader who is qualified, certain and capable. In all the things that ones does, do it as if you are doing it unto the Lord. Keeping the Lord at the forefront, keeps things into perspective. See, being a leader is being a greater servent and helper. Yes, you lead, but the majority of the time you are serving others and by your service to others you are setting a Godly example.

Be Blessed!

Happy Wednesday

We have made it to mid-week. Summer is approaching and you know what we tend to do. We get that quick diet plan to lose pounds before the summer hits.

Instead of the quick fix diet, how about a life style change in eating? We eat to live. Food is one of the vital things we need to survive.

Now, in all this exercising what about our mind? Having peace of mind and in the soul is important. There is one who can give you and I peace in the midst of every situation. His name is Christ Jesus.

John 14:25-28 King James Version
These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. [26] But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. [27] Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

In these times, we all need peace.

Be Blessed!

Show Love

Hello Beloved,

We are all called to be servants of Christ, to help each other to overcome and provide words of hope. On this day, tell someone they did a good job. Tell someone “yes they can make it” or just smile when you see the person in front you. In doing so, you are showing the love of God.

Be Blessed!

Prayer for Strength

 

Psalm 119:159

New King James Version (NKJV)

159 Consider how I love Your precepts; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your loving kindness.

Lord Jesus we love your commandments and follow them.  Consider us Lord as we ask for strength. We need you Lord to make it through this day.  Thank you Lord for your loving kindness and for strength.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Be Blessed

 
 

The Morning Struggle and Victory

While walking this morning, my leg began to bother me so much that I almost reached for my cell to call for help. Instead, I spoke the Word of God and brought God’s Word  back to His remembrance.  The Lord God comes for His Word.  I said, “Lord you promised healing and total restoration. I need strength, Your strength that is within me and I kept on walking.” Soon enough I was moving better and the limp started going away.

Hebrews 4:14-16 King James Version

14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Go boldly to the throne of grace, speak the Word of God, believe and He will answer.

Be Blessed!

The Call

 

 

 

Isaiah 6:8 Kings James Version

Also, I heard the voice of the Lord saying ” Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

The Lord was calling for His people to represent Him and Isaiah answered the call.  The Lord is still calling today. Will you answer the call and give hope to a dying world?

The Language of the Body of Christ

 

Image result for Christian

 

 

Faith, Forgiveness and Love (FFL) are the language of the body of Christ.

Faith

When things are not going the way we intended or we are being misused or mistreated,  it is the word of Faith the keeps us going.  Hebrews 11:1, 6 states now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  We are speaking things into existence by our words.  Did not God use His words to create this world, the things within and us?

Forgiveness  

Then came Peter to Jesus, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say to thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:21-22).  If we do not forgive our brothers and sister, then God will not forgive us.  Jesus, said Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.(Luke 23:24)   Jesus asked forgiveness for us and God forgave us. God loved us so much that He gave his only begotten son to die on the cross so that we my be connected with Him again.

Love   

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (I Corinthians 13: 4-7).  Love heals a multitude of sins.

FFL is the language of the body of Christ.

Be Blessed!

Happy Tuesday

 

 

Happy Tuesday! Day two of the week. To be technical, this is the third day of the week based upon our calendar. 😎

Isaiah 43:25-26 King James Version

I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. [26] Put me in remembrance: let us plead s together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

Here we see that God has erased our wrongs, then He said declare that you are justified. So why do we bring up past wrongs? Declare the good. Declare that you are righteous.

Just saying, speak life.

Be Blessed!

Happy Friday

 

It is Friday and I have to say thank you Lord. I made it and I actually got things accomplished during the week. Sometimes though, my week is not so productive, but I learned something today, while reading “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young.  ” Most things that tangle my mind is not today’s concern’s, it is for tomorrow”.  Wow! How many times have I tried to get something done and was concerned about it and  it did not happen. Balance! Balance in Christ. If we keep Him 1st, He will indeed guide our foot steps.

Pick up the book ” Jesus Calling”, it will be a blessing.

Be Blessed!

The Lord will bless those who fear Him

The Lord will bless those who fear him. In the book of Psalm there are many examples. May Psalm 128 minister to your spirit.

Psalm 128 (New King James Version)

128 Blessed is every one who fears the Lord,

Who walks in His ways.

2 When you eat the labor of your hands,
You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
In the very heart of your house,
Your children like olive plants
All around your table.
4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

5 The Lord bless you out of Zion,
And may you see the good of Jerusalem
All the days of your life.
6 Yes, may you see your children’s children.

Peace be upon Israel!

Be Blessed!

Stop Complaining Make the Change

When you find yourself starting to complain, check yourself as to see what you can do to change the situation. I catch myself complaining about something that I can change. Hmm🤔, I do believe that the greater one inside of us has given us the ability to affect change. Let’s start with us and move positive change forward.

Grace and Favor for Lot

Genesis 19:29 (King James Version)

29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

It is my season for grace and favor, it is my season to reap where I have sown.  I am pretty sure you have heard the song “It’s Working” by William Murphy. It is my season for grace and favor, it is my season to reap where I have sown is the opening lines to the song.

In the selected passage we see that God remembered Abraham and sent Lot out of the midst of trouble.  For the seed that Lot sown with Abraham, the man of God, Lot was granted favor and grace by being in relationship with Abraham.  Beloved, when you help and pray for the man and woman of God, God will remember.  In the case of Lot, he was saved from destruction. It is good news to know that God will bless you for helping His people.  As you are praying over God’s chosen, you are sowing seeds in God that can be reaped in the future.

Be Blessed!

Waste or Increase

 

God is a creator. He increases and does not allow waste.

In the parable of the talents we see that master gave 3 servants some talents.  One he gave five, one he gave two and another he gave one. Each servant was given according to his own ability.  The master left and would return at an appointed time excepting to reap from what was given to his servant.  Upon his return, the servant who had 5 talents earned 5 more. He was made ruler over many because he was faithful with the little that was given to him.  The servant who had 2 talents earn 2 more. Likewise, he was made ruler over many because he was faithful with the little that was given to him.  They both were told to enter in the joy of their lord.  The servant who had one talent earned nothing. He hid the talent in the ground.  The one talent was taken from the servant and given to the one that had 5.  Why?  The servant did not use is talent, he wasted it by hiding it.

Our talents are given to us by God to be used and  shared with others to show the love of God.  How can we brighten up someones day with a smile, if we never smile? If the smile was meant for us to see, we would see our smiles without needing a mirror or something that has a reflection.  If our songs were not meant for others to hear, we would have not need to hear.

Do not waste your talent, use it for the glory of God.

Be Blessed!

The Morning Struggle

The struggle in the morning is real when it comes to getting up and ready. Now, the intent is there to be up early to spend time with God, but that sleep just is ah so good. The heart and motive are right but now the time is short and it seems like there is no time for God. There is time, grab your Bible and say a verse or two. Say thank you Lord, that is a prayer. Before you know it, your day will begin to shift as God is put 1st and a calmness will settle within you.

John 16: 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Christ is within us and as the Words of God are a spoken, peace within will arise.

Prisioned Dreams

Prison building, jail cell, bob wire fences and iron bars are not just physical, it is also mental. The hope and dreams that use to run wild in your mind is now locked up in the prison of your mind. Hurts and failures are seen as a reason to give up on the dream in your heart. Awaken from your slumber and remember the dream is a start. Begin to write what you see and dare to trust God and move toward your dream to see it become a reality.

Habakkuk 2:2-3 King James Version And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Hope- God’s Promise

Have you ever woke up with something so strong on your heart regarding someone else and when you prayed God instructed you to read  and He gave YOU words of encouragement ? That was me today. In my quest to be debt free and owe nothing to one, I swear bills are coming out of no where.  After reading a section of the August 2013 Believer’s Voice of Victory magazine by Kenneth Copeland Ministries, the presence of the Lord was all over me.  In reading Deuteronomy 8:7-10 and Proverbs 10:22  and it gave me encouragement.  I hope this help you too.

Deuteronomy 8:7-10 King James Version (KJV)

For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey; A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. 10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.

Proverbs 10:22 King James Version (KJV)

22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

It is God’s promise for us to be debt free.

Be Blessed!

Seasons

In the midst of this brisk cold morning, one can find warmth in cuddling up in your blanket or drinking a nice cup of hot tea. In spite of the spring season with winter weather, we can all relate to seasons in our lives that moves us into another area of learning. The Bible tells us “to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

May you learn from your current season to  trust God more and trust that He has equipped you to do what He has called you to do.

Peaceful Beauty

As I move about the day and move through the rain, I have to acknowledge the beauty of the day. The grey sky with a light background, which let’s me know the sun is wanting to break through. The Son of God, Christ Jesus wants to break some things up in our lives, so that we can have joy and peace.

John 16:13 English Standard Version

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Do you want joy and peace? Allow Christ to come into your space today.

Peace and Love

Power in Words

Proverbs 15:4 King James Version 

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

 

We have the power in the words that we speak to uplift or bring down. We are called to give hope to others, not hatred or gossip. Rise up my brother and sister and speak life.

Show Love

 

Galatians 5:13 King James Version (KJV) 13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

No matter what position you are in the church, corporate world, government or your home, we are to serve each other with love.

Furthermore as a Christian, Jesus said, people will know that we are a Christian by the love that we show to one another.

John 13:35 KJV  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Screaming and yelling when you can not get your way in not lovely.   Talking bad about the lady at the counter who is patiently trying to assist you as you complain is not lovely.  Not matter if you are serving or being served, you should show love.

Show someone love today.

Proverbs A Nugget of Knowledge – Correction

 

 

  1. Proverbs 28:23 King James Version He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

Correcting one when they are in error puts the corrector in a better light to the receiver of the correction. Although they may not like what is being said, they will be grateful in the end that the person cared enough to take the time out to help put them back on the right way.  Truth is not always easy, but it is right.

Bondage is Broken

Romans 8:18-21 King James Version (KJV)

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

God is waiting for the revealing of His sons and daughters. In this revealing there will be deliverance from the bondage of sin. When the first act of sin was created in the Garden of Eden, it affected the relationship between God and man. God loves us so much that He gave his son Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice to connect man and God back together.  The bondage of sin is being broken every day for those you are in Christ Jesus!

 

Break Every Chain”

There is power in the name of Jesus
to break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.
There is power in the name of Jesus 
to break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.
There is an army rising up.
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain. 
There is an army rising up. 
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.
I hear the chains falling.
There is power in the name of Jesus
to break every chain, break every chain, break every chain.

Sculpting

 

When you hear the word sculpting, it reminds ones of an Artist. An Artist carefully shaping their clay to make that spectacular master piece.

Sculpting is derived from the word sculpt, which is defined as to make or shape a statue.

Isaiah 64:8 says “But now, O Lord you are our Father;We are the clay and your our potter;And all we are the work of your hand.”

For each storm that blows your way. God is equipping you with longevity. Showing you how to endure without falling. He is trimming where it needs to be trimmed. He is changing the heart and the attitude.

Ahh, then it happens, a pearl is formed. Oh, that is pearl is you! So beautiful!

Dear Lord,

Continue to prune, shape and mold us until we become a pearl.

In Jesus name,

Amen

Challenges of the New Day

 

The challenges of a new day are the same for everyone. Really?   If you are still on this earth moving and breathing, yes the challenges of the a new day are the same. We begin to think about the day, we begin to move portions of our body and we open our eyes.  After this, some pray to God or the little god. Some are thankful and some wish they were still asleep as the task ahead is too heavy. It is a choice to pray or not to pray. You can be positive or negative, it is still a choice. Today, I encourage you to be positive and choose life. Choose things that are for your good.

If you are struggling, there is a Savior, Christ Jesus who wants to help you and I. He tells us in Matthew 11:28-29 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

No matter what the challenge is, we can rest in Christ Jesus. He will give us the strength to go on and give us the direction needed to make it through the day.

I choose to rest in God. The choice is yours.

Blessings

 

Help For The Oppressed

Image result for picture of a person being redeemed from oppression

 

 

Oppression is defined as sense of being weighed down in body and mind.  It is when a person fills like everything is coming at them and they do not know what to do.  There is a huge weight on the mind and body.  A person may even feel hopeless.

So many people feel this way at times in their life. Some are able to quickly moves pass the oppression and some are not able to. Oppression is even generational.

The Bible tells us in Psalm 9:9 ( NIV) “the Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in the times of trouble”. Also in Psalm 103:6 it states ” the Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.” 

When one is feeling so overwhelmed with life, there is help. There are people who God has to speak life and not death.

The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 11:28 (NIV) “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. The Lord wants you and I to cast all our cares unto to Him.  He will give us rest and peace. Do not delay, give it all over to the Lord.

Peace and Blessings,

Faith That Moves God

 

Does your Faith move God?

Luke 17:11-19

King James Version (KJV)

11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,

16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

The 10 Lepers ask Jesus to have mercy on them.  Jesus gave the instructions, go show yourself to Priest.  Then it happened, on the way to the see the Priest, they were healed. One, turned around and went back and worshiped at Jesus feet. The other 9 continued on their journey to the Priest.  That one leper, was so thankful for what Jesus did for him.  He was no longer considered dirty. Glory to God! He was now considered clean.  Jesus ask about other the 9 Lepers.  See this man was not a Jew, but he knew that Jesus was able to heal him.  The Lord Jesus said to him, thy faith hath made thee whole!!  So this one man was made whole.  That means no more issues in his body.  His faith stopped heaven! His faith stopped Jesus!

Do you have faith to stop heaven?  Do you want the faith to stop heaven?

Be Blessed!

Who Sharpens You

 

Proverbs 27:17 (Message Bible) You use steel to sharpen steel, and one friend sharpens another. 

Our focus text points out that one friend sharpens another. To better explain this text, is the friend(s) that you hang around whose behavior is good/bad, in due time you will begin to pick up their ways. Take care to pay attention to the things that you begin to do when you are in your friends company. If you begin to do something that is not good, you need to change whom you hang with, until you are strong enough to sharpen them, instead of them sharpening you.

Love is a Command

Image result for pictures of love bugs

To love is a commandment. We are to love another, our enemies and God. In loving our enemies, God said we will be rewarded. Now, if you choose to hate, you are hurting yourself. Hate is a toxin to the body. The building up of hate in the mind, body and soul, affects the body’s organs,natural processes and the breeding even more negative emotions, brings a greater risk for heart disease and stroke.

When we love, we are patient and kind. When we love we are showing God character as God is love.

Will you show love today?

 

Be Blessed !

Love Needs to be Shared

Romans 12:9 King James Version Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil, cleave to that which is good.

Our focus is ” let love be without dissimulation”.  Dissimulation means to hide under false appearance according to Merriam Webster Dictionary. The focus phrase now reads as “let love be without a false appearance”. “Let love be without a hidden agenda”.

We are to love unconditionally. It does not matter the hurt, pain, action etc.. Jesus, yes Christ Jesus died for all mankind. He did no wrong. Yet, He walked the earth and gave His love to all. Yup! The women who was caught in adultery, Paul who murdered Christians and Judas who betrayed Him for money. There are many other examples of Christ showing love.

Here is what needs to be noticed. The love given by Christ and that is to be given by all, is “agape” love. Agape love, is a love that wishes no harm. It wants the individual to succeed. You can not tell me that a person does not need love.  Scientists have tested this and found that even plants respond to love. The plant that did not get attention died and the plant that received attention flourished. Oh, you are saying, I do not talk to my plants. Yeah right! 🙂

Giving encouragement is a form of love. Let’s encourage someone today. Share how you made it through your depression, oppression, feeling of inferiority etc.. Let them know that can make it and you love them just because. No strings attached. Look them in the eyes, smile and give them a hug.

Share your love today, this world needs it.

Blessings

Oh that men would praise his name, would praise his name to the ends of the earth.

Jesus was whipped, throned and crucified for us, so we may have life.

Oh that men would praise his name.

He died and rose triumphantly with the keys of death.

Oh that men would praise his name.

Come unto me and I will give you rest.

Oh that men would praise his name.

I created you in my image and given you power.

Oh that men would praise his name.

Even though you forsake me, I still love you.

Oh that men would praise his name.

You are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation.

Oh that men would praise his name.

I love you says the Lord, I love you.

Share Love

 

The love of God is to be shared by every born again believer to everyone, not just your fellow brother and sisters in Christ. We are to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Your neighbor can be anyone and honestly, it does not matter who they are, just love them. Everyone wants to feel love and feel expected.

Share you love today as it is not meant just for you.

Blessings

The Eye and Light

Repost

The eye plays an important role in our human existence.   It allows us to see the things around us, near and far. We get to see the beauty of the world, creatures and humans that live within.  The brain and the eye work hand in hand for us to see objects.  The reflection of light from the object we are looking at  goes through the optic nerve to the brain in which the brain interprets the object.

Matthew 6:22-23 King James Version (KJV) states that 22  the light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

The Bible tell us that the light of body is the eye.  This means the things that we see are registering to our brain as happy, sad, good or bad.  Being in Christ, we are called to be the light to world and we should pay attention to the objects/movies  that we watch and things that we read, so our light will continue to shine.

Abiding in Christ Jesus causes our light to shine.  In John 8:12 , Jesus said  I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Therefore, to keep our light shining we need to read the word of God ( the Bible), spend time in prayer and minimize the TV shows, movies, magazines etc. that causes our light to dim.

Be Blessed!

Right On Time

So, I am going about my business and God shows up! Not expecting anything, the blessing just drops.

We live in life of seed-time and harvest. In order for an apple tree to become a tree, a seed has to be planted. Then it has to go through germination. It has to go through some time of growing before you see a flower that represents an apple is growing.

Do you have any seeds in the ground?

Blessings!

Linty

We all will get lint on our clothes at some point in our lives. Lint is short, fine fibers that separate from the surface of cloth or yarn.

Today, man, I am really linty. I did not notice it when I left the house. So, I am ready for whatever happens with lint every where. My statement is this, I love me with lint and all. I am not prefect. I refuse to let some fabric dictate how I feel. God loves me, lint and all. So, whatever comes your way today, LOVE you. God sure does.

Blessings

Light and Love

 

John 15:4-9 King James Version (KJV) 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

God is light and love. God’s light leads us down the right road to be able to fulfill our purpose in this life.  God’s light gives us instruction and truth. Light is truth. As we abide in God, God abides in us, which makes us a part of him. As God is prosperous and fruitful so are we. If we not fruitful in Christ, we are not abiding in him as we ought.

 

2 Timothy 3:1-7 KJV This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,3 Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

As we continue in truth, we are not to be lovers of ourselves, but our love  is to be shared with others. Are light and love should shine so that we draw people unto God. We are made in the image of God and we have a form of godliness, but if we deny the truth of the light, we are not in Christ. We are in darkness instead of in the light.

Let the light and love of God shine through us!

Be Blessed!

Light and Truth

1st John 1: 5-10 King James Version (KJV) 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 

God is light and there is not darkness in Him.  If we walk with God, we are walking with light. God’s light represents righteousness and truth. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, one of the definitions of light is truth.  Righteousness is defined as free from guilt or sin. The light exposes darkness, wrong doing.  Darkness and light can not dwell together. Light will outshine the darkness. So, if we are living a life of deception, by day we are peaceful and loving and by night total chaos causing all kinds of troubling, fussing and cussing.  The light will show us what we are doing wrong and give instructions to make correction.   That is God’s truth helping us to get back in right relation with Him. We were created in God’s image to bear His LIGHT!

Be Blessed!

God’s Appointing and Preparing

 

In I Samuel Chapter 16, Saul has lost his King’s position in the spiritual realm and God has sent His servant the Prophet Samuel to the house of Jesse to anoint the next King. The prophet goes through all the sons of Jesse that was presented to him and the Lord said not them. Jesse did not present David as he was tending the sheep. The Lord said to Prophet Samuel look not at the appearance, but at the heart.  Then he anoints David to be King. In the spiritual realm, David is King, but not yet in the natural as David has  some preparing to do. (Verse 16).

Now here is the kicker, David was skillful in the harp and he loved to worship God. Saul had an evil spirit that came upon him from the Lord.

13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah. 14 But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him. 15 And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. 16 Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. 17 And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me. 18 Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the Lord is with him. 19 Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which is with the sheep. 20 And Jesse took an ass laden with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent them by David his son unto Saul. 21 And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.

This is what I want to point out verse 21; And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.  When God appoints you to something, He will put you in the place where you will be  able to learn those things needed, so that you can do what HE, called you to. Do not freight, God’s has a plan. Stay focus, stay in Christ, stay in love and stay in faith. You will do what God has called you to.

Blessings

Affliction and Laughter

 

Image result for cartoon picture of person laughing hysterically

Many times in life affliction comes our way. It may be a relative, friend or ourselves.  Our response during that time and after that time is important. Are we going to stay upbeat in spite of the situation and try to find the positive? I am not saying it is an easy task to do, in the midst of pain, but laughter is a good medicine. It releases that tension and bad toxins from the body.

Proverbs 17:22 King James Version; A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Today in spite of the situation, find something to be thankful for and remember how far you came. Then laugh,yes rejoice and release all the negative thoughts from your mind.

Peace!

Change and Advance

Image result for picture of change

 

In the book ” Who Moved My Cheese” it states ” Things change and they are never the same again. This looks like one of those times. That’s life! Life moves on. And so should we”.

People do not like change. Shucks, I do not like change especially if I am enjoying what I am doing. If there is no change, there is no advancement. How can you move forward if you remain in the same position? You can not. We must be adaptable,not so much that we lose focus on who we are or our purpose.

The question is do you want to move forward and change? Or would you rather stay in the same place complaining and watch others around you advance?

 

Peace!

Storms in Life

Image result for picture of storms

In the midst of the storm, there generally is a way of escape. The question is will you take the escape route or it is meant for you to ride the storm out? Some storms of life we put ourselves into and some storms of life are not expected.  That is just called life. Things happen.

In the Book of Matthew Chapter 8:23-27 verses it tells a story how the disciples and Jesus were in ship at sea and a strong wind came and the disciples thought they were going to die.

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. 24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. 25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. 26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Jesus spoke to storm by rebuking the winds and the sea.  That same spirit of Christ is in you and I. What ever situation you are in today, believe God that you have the faith to ride it out. If you need a way of escape, believe God for direction and He will see you thorough.

Peace!

Hearer or Doer Preparation

Image result for picture of someone working and someone being lazy

 

James 1:22 King James Version 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

The hearer of the word, just goes for the promise.  They do not do any preparation they just jump right in ready to receive the prize.

The doer of the word, hears the word and does the preparation needed to receive the promise. After getting themselves prepared for the promise, they receive the promise.

To earn a Medical Degree, you must follow the set program of studies and take the required courses/labs.  The degree is the promise for completing course. To whom much is given, much is required.

Are you a hearer or a doer of the Word?

Be Blessed!

Proverty

Image result for picture of lack of money

 

Proverbs 20:13 King James Version (KJV)  Love not sleep, lest thou come into poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

Poverty is defined as a state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions according to Merriam Webster Dictionary.

What we see here in scripture is if you want to be able to achieve a certain amount of money or possession, you can not sleep all the time. One needs to work. Money is a means for getting things needed for survival. Now to get the amount of money you want, one must educate themselves. Education, getting knowledge and understanding is a key.

Proverbs 4:5-9 (KJV) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

Let us all strive to educate ourselves to remove the lack in our lives.  Let us share what we learn and help some one remove the poverty in their lives.

 

Blessings!
