All About JESUS

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Sitting quietly and meditating on God’s goodness and mercy. A season of waiting. A time of seeking God for His divine direction.

All I know…

I’m desperate for God’s touch. Each day I will set my heart to seek Him. He is my source of joy and peace.

So Grateful

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Just sitting here, lost in thought regarding those who have fought for our country, and those who have fought for the Kingdom of God.  Soldiers of war, naturally and spiritually.I’m wondering what they would say with the state of the church.

The church should be setting the pace for the things of this world. And yet, we seem to have been getting caught up with this old world’s way of thinking and acting. Our words and our actions should be lining up with God’s Word.  He’s not changing according to our ‘times’ and our emotions. His Word is sure, and is from everlasting to everlasting.

I’m challenged to pray for our nation, our leaders, our spiritual leaders.  God’s Word is still our instruction manual.  His Word is still true, and the basis for our everyday living. I cannot and shall not be ‘moved’.

New Journey

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Life is wonderful.  Life is great!  I am truly blessed, I just celebrated my 61st birthday.

I shared this little thought with a very good friend:

“When I was 20, folks who were 40 were old.
When I was 30, folks who were 50 were ancient.
Well, now that I’m in my sixties…. I don’t consider myself either.  In fact, I’m thinking just the opposite.
Life can be what you make it:
If you wanna feel old and tired… you will.
If you want to allow the Life of God to restore, strengthen, and enable you…. you can.”

I choose Life.  I choose Health. I choose Joy! I choose Peace.  I choose Happiness.
I choose JESUS!

Onward, Upward, n Higher,

The Key

Saturday, April 8th, 2017

Just a quick thought this morning.

After all that God has done for us, we must know that baking covenant fellowship with HIM opens the door for the enemy to steal your health, your finances, and your relationships.

We must not be so naive about the work of satan in this old world. He (the enemy) comes to steal, kill,and to destroy. The devil is real. His intentions are real. And to be real honest…he doesn’t even like you.

But GOD loves you and HE wants the best for you. HE sent His Son for you and for me.

Guard your heart. Don’t let the things if this world distract you.

  • Commit yourself and your ways to HIM.
  • Seek HIM first
  • Follow after HIM with your entire being.
  • Hunger for more of HIM

The point here is this:

“We cannot afford to turn back now”.

Living In Victory

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.      Hebrews 4:12 NLT

I’m thinking on this scripture… as I consider all that is going on in our nation, yes even in our churches…

How is your soul today?  Can you say, “it is well with my soul”?

Division, confusion, hatred, bitterness, nor jealousy is an acceptable attitude for the Christian.

It is so important to guard your heart right now, to watch what you say. You cannot spew hatred and venom and expect the blessing of God.

As we enter into a new season we must remember to pray.

  • Pray for our President and our nation’s leaders.
  • Pray for our Pastors.
  • Pray for our churches.

Pray for wisdom, pray for divine intervention.. Pray for safety.  Pray for each other.

Don’t be out of order.  Stay in line with God’s Word. Walk in love.

Be an instrument of peace,  an ambassador of Jesus Christ.  We can not conform to this world’s way of  thinking and acting… GUARD YOUR HEART!
