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?
The freezing cold has come to my area and other parts of the world. Pretty snow with frost bite weather.
Does the cold weather give one the right to be cold to other? No. Just because the outside is cold, the inside, the heart ❤️ should be warm. The love of God should flowing from us.
So grab some warmers and show some love.
We have ended another year 2017 and have embarked upon a new one. Many have not made it, but those who have, To God Be The Glory!
The number 8 signifies new beginnings. So as you and I start this year, may we grab a hold of the newness. Whatever things we messed up in 2017 or did not work out. That is okay. No one is perfect. God’s grace and mercy are new every morning.
For all the things that went right, To God Be The Glory.👏
Decide this day, that work, yes I know you have to make money, will not consume you. Many have died because of the stresses of life. Learn when to say no.
Take a minute to breathe and do you. Take some time in spend in the Word of God to renew your strength.
In 2018, I am stepping into my rightful place in Christ Jesus and I look forward to the journey. The journey of a closer walk with Him. A new me, yeah! Getting to know me better! A new look on life. A new journey with my husband and family. Balance, yes the ability to be balanced in all that I do.
Happy New Year and embrace the new.
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.
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!

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!

Have you ever heard the saying, “the early bird gets the worm”? This bird is the one who gets up early before all the others and watches the ground. He is not just watching, he is studying the ground to see how the soil is moving. In his studying of the ground, he knows exactly where to be to get his morning meal, the worm.
If we, humans would take the time out just like the bird does to study, we too will put ourselves in position to get thing(s) that we need. Our studying is the preparation to achieve our goal.
In Proverbs 24:27 ( KJV) it states, 27 Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.
Preparation is the key!
