” Faith Rekindled “

” Today Is The Greatest Day of My Life !! ” \0/\0/

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage.- PSALMS 27:14

Dear God, in quietness and faith I turn to You. I recognize Your presence within me, for Your life is the vitality and strength of my being.

Your peace and joy are the peace and joy of my being. I live and move and rest secure in Your protecting presence.

should anything come to me today to test my faith, I call upon Your abiding, sustaining power within. I meet all challenges triumphantly. Should anything or anyone try my patience today, I remember that You are the harmony and peace of my being.

I abide in the constant realization that You, loving God, are in the midst of me. You have placed within my heart the spark that kindles my faith. I am illumined, guided and protected. How heartwarming it is to know that You are with me, right where I am every moment of every day.

Wherever I am, God is in the midst of me. \0/\0/

” Today Is The Greatest Day of My Life!! ” \0/\0/

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8 \0/\0/

” HUG’S ARE BLESSINGS Too!!”

Hi!! everyone!! GOD is Good all the time. Not sometimes, Not a few times. ((All)) the time. Today I wanted to talk about hugs. I do believe many of you may have notice that Sister Betty jo gives out hugs. I have read: Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God. There are blessings that comes with hugs. Today I’m going to share my own blessings about them.  It is Jesus Christ Will for me to do so today. As a child I was raised in a home that we didn’t get a lot of hugs unless my dad was home.  My mother believe that as long as she was working and having a roof over our heads and food in the fridge was enough to let us know that we were being loved.  As a child I would get my hugs from my dad who was a military man. Who fought for this country. He was not at home as much as I would have wanted him too be. But as a child one could not understand why dad wasn’t at home as we as children would have loved for him to be. We as children dare to ask Questions, nor talk back.  Because they were the Adults and we were the children. 🙂
   

I can recall my dad had no problem in hugging. I can never forget that. I truly do believe that it had became a habit for me. His arms were so warm, and loving. I was called daddy’s little girl. 🙂 I can recall him calling me his little princess.  My mother it was hard for her to hug. I do believe that she came from a family that didn’t hug. So I been hugging folks since I was a child, teen, and as a adult. For me personally a hugging is comforting, affectionate, warm, and caring.  I remember when I was working caring for Elders. I would give them hugs, with a smile. And they loved it!! You don’t really have to say anything. Many of them started to hug back. I do believe it became a habit for them. Where they would be looking for a hug, and to give hugs back. What does that tell you? I do believe there are a lot of children, as well as adults that are hurting within. They not asking for a lot, I do believe they are saying (I need a hug).

Of course there are some people that aren’t affectionate, and there are some that are. Let us not hold it against them. I truly believe it can be teachable. I believe Jesus Christ had given and received a whole lot of hugs in His time. Because He was, and is a God with affection. I said that because I recall reading about Him being affectionate. John 11:35 Jesus wept. He had heard about the passing of Lazarus. Whom He loved dearly. You can read about the death of Lazarus in John 11. 
   Jesus Christ did not have a cold heart. He didn’t have non evil in Him. He was a shepherd with a purpose.  All  that he had gone through for us. He was Hated by people, lied on, called names. He was spit on, laughed at etc. Still He had love with compassion to do what He was called to do for His Heavenly Father, and for each of us. He had suffered for us. His Father had given us His Son.  John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. There is so much more I can share. Hopefully I will share at another time, if it be Gods Will to do so. I’m so blessed to be a blessing to share this.  I will continue sharing the Love of Jesus Christ as long as it be His Will. I’m so every Thankful and Grateful the Hugs He gives me everyday. I take non of His hugs for granted.  There is someone that needs a ((Hug))!! 🙂 

” It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion’s fail not. They are new every morning, great is they faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 \0/\0/ ((Hugs)) 🙂

” A Testimony About Jesus Christ “

” The words in the Bible are not ordinary words. They are words inspired by God Himself through His Spirit, and they are full of life-changing power. They are a written record of God’s thoughts. They teach us how to live, what to believe, how to think, and how to relate to God and to other people. I personally so thankful, and grateful that I can tell others that I know Jesus Christ.  I can share as well my own testimony with others and not be ashame to tell where He he had found me. He wants each of us to share our testimony to a dying world. The condition I was living wasn’t pleasing to Him. That’s how much He loves each of us. He cares about souls. He took me and cleansesd me from the inside.  I no longer live in  darkness, I live in His light. He wants everyone to be Saved, and not go to Hell. Jesus testimony is shared here in the Book of John 5:31-47. Be Bless!!

There isn’t anyone like Him. There is Only One Jesus Christ. Let us begin:  ‘ If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? ‘ 

UNITY…

BEHOLD, how good and how pleasant it is for bretheren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. Psalm 133:1-3

STRENGTH…

Every Weakness 2 Cor 12
” Today Is The Greatest Day of My Life!! ” \0/\0/
” When they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness. ” Acts 4:31
When I think my heartfelt convictions might be threatened by outer circumstances or inner concerns, I remember the story in Acts about the boldness of faith that Peter and John displayed while in prison. Holding fast in faith, they were released to continue their ministry of Jesus’ teachings.
I am strengthened by the boldness of my own faith. I pray and give thanks for the Christ Spirit expressing in me and as me. In strength and with faith, I look directly into a healing challenge and realize the wholeness that awaits expression. I look beyond the appearances of lack and know that abundance is being manifested. Faith is a cornerstone in my life, and peace is my experience in all situations.

” GRATITUDE “

” Today Is The Greatest Day of My Life!! ” \0/\0/

grateful-thankful-blessed_800x (1)

Glory be to God AlMighty!! He get’s all my praise!! \0/\0/ I’m personally grateful, thankful, and blessed everyday.  Whether I have are don’t have.  Having Him is enough. When I’m in pain, I’m still letting others know that ” This Day Is The Greatest Day of My Life ” with tears running down my face.  I have learned to give Jesus Christ thanks. This morning when He woke me up. It was the Holy Spirit that direct me to this scripture. I read it and I have read it again. And it’s not that I haven’t read it before. But each time I read His Words. He let’s me know that His words never change. They are the same just as He has said in  Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.  And to me that is beautiful!! He knows what we need, and He knows what we don’t need. I tell people that it is He that provides all my needs.  I don’t say it because it sounds  good. I say it because it is the truth. I wont to give others comfort, just as He gives me comfort daily even when I taste the sweet and the bitter in this world.  I know He is in Control of everything.  I pray that Psalm 100 will comfort you. His Words are powerful, because He is Powerful. And He wants His sheep to keep following Him. His our shepherd.  Don’t give Up!! His watching over us: 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.  Amen!! Amen!! \0/\0/

PSALM 100:1-5

Make a joyful noise unto the

LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness:

Come before His presence with singing. 

Know ye that the LORD He is

God: it is He that hath made us, and 

not we ourselves; we are His people,

and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter unto His gates with thanks-

giving, and into His courts with praise:

be thankful unto Him, and bless His

name.

For the LORD is good; His

mercy is everlasting; and His truth en-

dureth to all generations.

” I BELIEVE “

” Today Is The Best Day of My Life ” \0/\0/

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 faith 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/

” Pray Children of God “

FEAR

” Today Is The Best Day of My Life!! ” \0/\0/ 

PSALM 64:1-10

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!! 🙂
