Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22
Many words come to mind as I try to define faith. Faith is a belief, a feeling, an impetus or an insight. When I have faith, I believe. I believe that I am a spiritural being, that I am never alone, never separated from God. In faih I feel divenely protected and directed. Spirit leads me along every step of my life’s journey.
When I have faith, I am inspired and energized. I experience an impulse to do more and be more to spread my spiritural wings and fly. Ideas flow freely and easily, unhampered by fear or anxiety.
My faith in God transforms my life mentally, emotionally, physically and spiriturally. Through my faith, I am blessed beyond measure.
I have faith in God, and I am blessed. \0/\0/

HEAR my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, who shall see them?
They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded. So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
” Children of God may we continue focusing On Our LORD JESUS CHRIST. Let us not allow the enemy to take us off course. Let us continue the Purpose That Jesus Christ has called for you and I to do his work in His Name. His About Soul Saving. He doesn’t wont anyone to go to Hell. Keep telling people about who Jesus Christ is. Share your own testimony. What He did in your own life, and why He did it. He loves them, not the sin. \0/\0/
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, THE LORD IS MY HELPER, AND I WILL NOT FEAR WHAT MAN SHALL DO UNTO ME.
Be Bless!! 🙂
” Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. ” Colossians 1:11-15 \0/\0/
No matter how busy I am, I know it is important to take time for a prayer break during the day. This is a sacred time in which I rest my body and renew my soul.
I close my eyes, still my thoughts, and rest in the silence. Audible words are not necessary, because I am filled with an undeniable knowing that I am communing with God.
During these times of rest and relaxation, I hold my attitudes and perceptions up to the light of truth. I let any that do not reflect that truth fade away. Allowing the serenity I receive from being in God’s presence to fill my entire being, I am refreshed and renewed. I leave my prayer break rested and relaxed, focused and rejuvenated.
Resting in the serenity of God’s presence, I am refreshed and renewed.
” Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all. ” 2 Thessalonians 3:16
This God…his way is perfect; the promise of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all who take refuge in him. 2 Samuel 22:31
Feelings of insecurity may arise in me from time to time. If so, I take a moment to observe the thoughts behind my feelings. Rather than dwell on what might go wrong, I choose to focus on God’s powerful, protecting presence within and around me.
With each slow, deep breath, I am filled with peace. God is greater than my fears, and I am God’s beloved. I call upon divine strength and feel my strength increasing.
In any situation, God is mighty in the midst of me, lifting my spirits and calming my mind. God is my source, my strength and my shield. I am grateful for a peaceful heart, as I know I am always safe in God’s presence.
” God is my source, my strength and my shield. ” \0/\0/
His lord said unto him, well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Matthew 25:21
Don’t Give Up!! Keep Pushing!!
For to be carnally minded is death: but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:6
The distractions and stressful intensity of life around me cannot disturb my peace. At any time, I can enter a sweet, sacred silence with God.
In the silence, the true nature of life is revealed to me. In the presence of my Creator, there is no conflict or confusion, no illness or lack. Any concern melts away.
“God, I relax now into Your loving embrace. I release all cares or concerns to You, knowing that You are my ever-present support and comfort. You enfold me in divine love. My heart and mind and body are infused with the sacredness of this moment, and all is well.
“Thank You, God, for this peace that dwells within my heart and flows out into my life with abundance.”
(Embraced by divine love, I rest in the sacredness of God’s peace.) \0/\0/
Words of Comfort: Reclaiming Inner Peace
Today Is The Best Day Of My Life!! \0/\0/
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
This scripture speaks boldly about how God Himself had given His One and Only Son for us. All of us, not just one of us, not just a few of us, not just a certain particular one. It was for ((all)) of us. He is hoping that we all would believe in His Son so that none of us would perish. And we would all have an everlasting life with Him. As you read this scripture: He did say ((whosoever)), He isn’t forcing, pushing, nor forcing anyone to believe. It will be you and I choose to believe. We didn’t even love His son first, it was Him who loved us first. In 1 John 4:19 We love Him because He first loved us. It is by grace are we saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9.
So God doesn’t want you and I to just love those who love us back. It is a blessing to receive love from others. But what about those who don’t love you and I back? What about those who hate us. Those who get angry when we talk about Jesus Christ. Speaking the truth. We both know that speaking the truth is not popular. What about those who call us nasty names. Those who no longer have anything to do with us? Are we still suppose to love them? My answer to this question is yes!! Years ago I would not have been able to speak this as I am doing this day. And that is because I personally have been hurt by others, and I have hurt others as well. This is only because of the process, that I have been in. God does the healing only if we allow Him to do so. Reading Psalm 6:2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. God is a God of healing, He is a Father who doesn’t change. We all should be grateful and thankful for this. The spirit that dwells within us, the spirit of truth will convict each of us, will teach us, and will discipline us when He knows we are wrong.
When He commands: Matthew 28:19:20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen` [There His not saying to us to love only people who or whom loves us only, nor did He say to teach only people who or whom we love. The Holy Ghost that dwells within us will not speak such. Because the Holy Ghost within us is whom His given us to do His command.] And as we continue reading this scripture His telling us that He is with us alway. Love is Action and Truth, He demonstrated that love is when He ((let)) them put Him on that cross, that to me is His action in love, and Truth is when He said: Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. So the question we are to ask ourselves are we loving those who don’t, and won’t love us back??? (1 John 2:15) & (1 John 4:7-8)
God Bless!! \0/\0/

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. \0/\0/
” We spend so much of our time on having things for the wrong reasons. (1). Trying to keep up with what others have, like material things etc. (2). Wanting what others have, not knowing how they got those things. (3)Those are things that we see, that are temporal. There are so many unhappy people. The LORD is saying to us ((all)) how about the things which are ((not)) seen like Eternal Life. Being with Jesus Christ for eternal. He’s alive, He isn’t dead.
Do we truly believe in His Truth what He has given us? He laid down His life for us ((all)). That to me is called Agape!! I personally was one of those people who thought to have things was the way to go. Found out the hard way my thinking was wrong. There are many who walk around with the wrong thoughts. May we continue sharing our testimonies with others. Don’t be ashamed!! Pray and hope they too will…In 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. Amen!! Amen!! \0/\0/
Matthew 24:35-36 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

I can still smile, and tear, and speak these words: That ” Today Is The Best Day of My Life.” I Couldn’t speak theses words years ago. I was not where I am today with Jesus Christ being in my life, and heart.
Today is my Mama’s Birthday. She is no longer with us. She was 87 years old when she passed on May 27th 2017. This picture I choose because it speaks words of truth, hope, and love. I choose not to get to deep in sharing the relationship between my mama and I had. Jesus has been with me through this part of my journey, and He is still with me in my journey’s. He has not never failed me. I personally had held on so tightly to the hurt, and pain within me. I didn’t wont to let it go. Until one day I had to let it go. And I choose to hold tight to the Words of Jesus Christ. Let it go!! He will Help!! you. It has been worth it!! This is the reason why I started writing in my journal’s. Jesus Christ was always there, and has helped me through many things. When there was no one else but Him. I give Him all the praise and glory. I do not take any of the credit. When He woke me up this morning. He brought me to something that I needed to read, that I had read before. I’m going to share with you all. I do pray and hope someone will be strengthened, and encourage just as I have, and has been. 🙂
God has plans for our lives, but He won’t force those plans upon us. To the contrary, He has given us free will, the ability to make decisions on our own. With that freedom to choose comes the responsibility of living with the consequences of the choices we make.
If we seek to live in accordance with God’s will for our lives, and we should, then we will live in accordance with His commandments. We will study God’s word, and we will be watchful for His signs. We will associate with fellow Christians who will encourage our spiritual growth, and we will listen to that inner voice that speaks to us in the quiet moments of our daily devotionals.
God intends to use us in wonderful, unexpected ways if we let Him. The decision to seek God’s plan and to follow it is ours and ours alone. The consequences of that decision have implications that both profound and eternal, so choose carefully.
” We must be willing to let Jesus Christ lead us….He will help us though the pain, and criticism that we may receive from this world. Don’t give up!! Keep believing, trusting, and being obedience to what Jesus Christ has called you to do in His name. Yes I miss my mama, and have always loved her. I pray and hope she is in the arms of Jesus Christ. Keep sharing the word of God with individuals. They may reject it, but remember it isn’t us whom they reject, it is Jesus Christ whom they are rejecting. (Luke 10:16 says: He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth Him that sent me.)
Know this, when Jesus Christ is about to Re-position your life. Know that the devil will begin to attack!! Rebuke him in the Name of Jesus Christ. Jesus Name is Powerful!! Be Bless!! \0/\0/
FAITH…God’s Love Is Our Greatest Security Blanket: Kay Arthur advises, “Snuggle in God’s arms. When you are hurting, when you feel lonely or left out, let Him cradle you, comfort you, reassure you of His all-sufficient power and love.” Enough said. 🙂
