Happy New Year

this is my first post for 2016, so I would like to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Praise the Lord, I am excited that we made it to another year, another month, and another day! Our God is an awesome God, he reigns from heaven's above with wisdom power and love, our God is an awesome God, can I get an Amen? There are many who have gone on to be with the Lord, but we who are still here are here because God is not through with us yet, and he has work for us to do. God has given all of us a work to do, but he has given some of us special assignments. some of us still don't know what God has called us to do so, to you I want you to know that we all can start by being a witnesses for him can I get an Amen on this?  We all are called to be a witness for our Lord and savior Jesus Christ!  You can start by telling everyone your testimony of what the Lord has done in your life will bring honor to his name.  Until next time, may the grace of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ rest and rule within our hearts in Jesus' name. amen.

Joy to the world the Lord has come!

I know that everyone can agree to the fact that every time we turn around, we hear all kinds of bad news going on all over the world!   but, if you read this post today, you will hear the good news of Jesus Christ .  The good new of Jesus Christ says, " Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid , If you believe in God, believe also in me." I'm reminded of a few songs that gives my heart and mind peace, strength, and joy, and these songs  are Hark the Herald angel sing, glory to the new born king, and Joy to the world.  I hope they bless you as much as they  bless me..

Joy to the world
the Lord is come
let earth receive her king
let every hear,
prepare him room,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven and 
and heaven, heaven, nature sing.
He rules the world,
with truth and grace,
 and made the nations prove,
the glory of,
 his righteousness 
and wonders of his love
and wonders of his love
and wonder -of -his- love

Hark the Herald angel sing, 
glory to the new born king,
peace on earth
and mercy mild,
god and sinners reconciled,
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph
in the skies;
with angelic hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Hark the Herald angels sing
glory to the new-born king.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to All, How will you celebrate Christ's Birthday!

I want to take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!  In case you don’t already know, this month is our Lord and savior Jesus Christ’s birthday! Hallelujah to the king of kings and lord of lords!   As I was sitting on my bed this morning, a thought came to my mind, and the thought was, how will you celebrate Christ’s Birthday this year?  Before answering the question in my mind, I began to think long and hard about it because as a Christian, you Want to do what’s pleasing to the Lord and not yourself.  I started thinking back about how our parents taught us to celebrate Christmas.  Ever since I was small, our parents celebrated Christmas with a decorated tree, lots of food, and gift giving to loved ones.   As I got older, I discovered others celebrate it pretty much the same way, and yet; some don’t celebrate it at all.   I was bought up with the belief that birthdays (especially Christ’s) are special and ought to be celebrated, so most of the time, each of us was given a birthday party which included a cake, ice cream, friends, family, and a few presents if we were lucky, but I guess the most important point that I want to make is that what they did for us made our birthdays a special event or day to remember!   Birthdays are tangible, and Christ is a spirit, so do not see how celebrating his birthday would get him excited or even necessary.  I believe that Christ gets more excited as well as honored when we worship him, lead others to Christ, and share his goodness with others!  Let us celebrate eternal life.  St. John 3:16 that says, For God so loved the world that he sent us his one and only son to die, that whosoever believe on him should not perish, but they should have everlasting life.  

So, I conclude that celebrating Christ’s birthday with tangible things are not exciting him. What excites him is when we as believers lead others to him and tell of his goodness to everyone who want to hear of it.  To God be the glory for the things he has done, for he has done great things.  He’s still healing the sick, and raising those who are spiritually dead, Amen.

Give and it shall be given unto you

This is the season of giving, and the bible declares that when we give, it will be given unto us, good measures, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give unto us.  Whether or not it's the season of giving, I am a person who always give something of value away to someone in need.  I give because it's my nature and because it makes me feel good to be able to lend a helping hand, so when I give something away, I'm not looking for anything in return, but I always, get blessed right back with something of equal value or  more than equal  in return.  His word is very much alive today as it was over two-thousand years ago!
A lot of believers feel that they will be blessed more, or God will honor their giving more when they give to their church home, but from experience, I came to find out that God honors our giving be it at our local church or if we give it to someone in need.  So, when the spirit leads you to   be a blessing to someone, give it freely and cheerfully.  As a matter of fact, it's always good to intentionally be  listening to the voice of the  holy spirit   and it will guide you as to who to give to.  I have a few testimonies to share.  Lately here, I've been lead to bless this sister with finances to keep her going, and no longer than twenty-four hours, I get the funds right back.  Lately, God has been blessing us with great household furniture and accessories for the house at a super low price!  We were planning to buy a brand new television for four or five hundred dollars, and ran across one in great condition for only one-hundred dollars! Everything we needed and was planning to buy new, we were able to find it for a reasonable price and all of it is well taken care of, so I bless the name of the Lord for keeping all of his promises, and for strengthening my faith in what he can and wants to do in me and through me.  If this message has inspired you in some way, please share it, tweet it, plus it, and like it across your social media networks, and thanks in advance!  That's all I have for now, may God bless you and your family each and everyday, and in every way.

Things to love about Autumn

Because of all the brown leaves falling everywhere ,  autumn can seem a little boring and dull , but there still is a lot to love about this season.  Most of the hot days are gone and the cool breezes are here for a while which is one reason to love the fall.  This time of the year seems to be a good time to take nature walks in the parks or trails with family and or friends.  As you and your little ones walk, you can talk to them and let them discover trees, pinecones, leaves and allow them to collect items and make a fall collage.  This is also a good time to enjoy outside games as well as go to high school and college games.  When our son, DJ, was young, we loved going to different sports and making memories with each other.  When it comes to decorating, I enjoy decorating my designated place in my living room with seasonal decorations, it's just so much more fun to do this with my child.    A lot of us enjoy taking more trips to theme parks this time of year because it's not too hot or too cold.  What do you enjoy about the  autumn? I'm sure I didn't name everything there is to love about this season.  Why don't you take this free button pattern?

Overcoming fear

 This post will show you how I got the victory over  fear.  Thinking back over the years,

I don't know why I was so fearful, but as far as I can remember, I was always fearful of speaking in front of others, at church and everywhere which left me feeling guilty and less than others!    Even during bible teaching when the crowd was small, I was afraid to speak my thoughts.  At work, I had to say a few words before others and fear caused me to get nervous and my words didn't come our right.  It wasn't that I didn't have anything good to say, because most of the time, I did have good points to make, but I was always afraid my words wouldn't come out right, and usually, they didn't. Finally, I got tired of being defeated by fear and started sincerely praying to God and asking him to deliver me from the spirit of fear, and I began to read scriptures related to fear and where it originated and how to overcome it.  Praise the Lord because my strategies worked for me and I'm confident they'll work for you as well. 

Here's a short prayer that  helps to overcome fear
I will not be intimidated by anything of this world. I renounce all fear of intimidation and control, in the name of Jesus Amen.


2 Timothy 1:7 says, "God has not given us the spirit of fear  but of power, love, and a sound mind." 
the acronym for fear is F= false E = evidence A=appearing R=real, false evidence appearing real. 
Psalms 27:1 says, " The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?" So, I was aware that fear is from the devil, but I believe that something happened in my childhood that caused me to have such fear of failure.  Prayer, reading the scriptures and reminding yourself daily of the scriptures and reminding yourself daily that being afraid of things going wrong, isn't the way to make things right
