Something To Think About…

You may not be able to do EVERYTHING that you desire right now, but you are still able to do SOMETHING!! One step at a time. One day at a time. You can and will accomplish the goal set before you, if you just begin to move forward!

Something To Think About…

The joy of the Lord is my strength! Sorrow abounds all around us as we or our loved ones deal with stress, disappointments, illness, and loss, yet still we can find joy in the presence of the Lord! When darkness tries to overtake me I look to the hills from whence comes my help. My help comes from the Lord! Your help comes from the Lord too! I might have to cry sometimes, but I hold fast to God’s promise that one day He will wipe away every tear! I may not always understand “why”, but I’m thankful for the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. The one who can keep me and you through it all, the great I am, is always with us even when we might feel alone and forsaken. God said He will never leave us nor forsake us, and we must believe this as we walk in faith through the storms of life. I may feel sadness try to overtake me unawares, but in the presence of my Lord it must flee! The joy of the Lord is my strength! I will trust and abide in Him!!

Sharing a Facebook memory I posted on September 12, 2017…

In everything give thanks. My uncle sent me a last minute reminder about our family reunion “just because”, although he said he knew we probably couldn’t come. However, for the first time in years it worked out that my husband was off and my kids were out of school. This never happens. We decided to come home and surprise everyone when we received the reminder from him.

I am so thankful we did because it allowed me to see and hug my grandmother one last time. I am thankful for a God who cares about us, and even in this allowed it to be so. It was on my mind at one point during our final service together to take a video/picture of her at church, but after dismissal I did not, so instead I will have to hold the memory of that day in my heart.

If it is on your heart to send a text, call, post a message on facebook, etc.than just do it. Your facebook post may be for just one person, but that’s enough. The good shepherd left all to find the one that was lost. You may be laughed at, talked about, ignored, and put down when you do, but if your message reaches the one it was meant for than it is worth it all. I realize when I post bible verses, devotionals, etc. it is not for everyone (or probably even most), but if it reaches that one than that’s okay!

Hold your loved ones close, take the pictures and videos, make the calls, get yourself right with the Lord today, because tomorrow is not promised. Enjoy and give thanks for what you have today, no matter how great or small. Be blessed everyone, and enjoy today!!

Today we pause to remember…

Prayers for the families of all those who lost loved ones. Prayers for those of us who remain that we will be ready to meet the Lord when our time comes. One day the Lord will wipe away every tear. One day there will be no more death, dying, and despair. We look to the hills from whence comes our help. Our help comes from the Lord!!

No matter how far you’ve gone the Lord is still calling you to come back home!

If I…

Matthew 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be made whole.

If I … Wow. Two little words, yet so powerful!!
If I… Words that expressed determination to press through and to press on no matter the obstacles that lie ahead!
If I… Words that required tremendous faith to reach out to the great physician!
If I… Words that required ignoring past disappointments and failures.
If I.. Words that drove out doubt and no options.
If I… Words that expressed hope and a personal choice.
If I… Words that gave focus in the midst of naysayers, doubters, and societies set rules.
If I… Words that went beyond what was seen with the natural eye and pushed forward into the supernatural, spiritual.
If I… Words that revealed understanding that true faith requires action!
If I…

Good night!!

Our family has been blessed with strong women of God as role models!! None of us children have an excuse for not living right, because they taught us the way and were living examples before us too!! I remember like it was yesterday watching them pray, teach, and preach with such power and annointing. They didn’t play church or go to be entertained!! They were on a mission, and took their assignments seriously!!

I love hearing the stories of how my great grandmother was still witnessing in the nursing home until her death, and how my grandmother made sure the family knew what needed to be done so everything was in order before simply praying and speaking in tongues as she passed. She died the way she lived as a prayer warrior, so quiet but so fierce in the Lord!! My heart. My everything. Words could never explain.

Now we must say farewell to another sweet soul, but this morning as I rode to work these words were on my heart, “1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”. Our hearts might break, but It’s not over!! We must continue to work while it is yet day, and keep pressing towards the mark for the prize of the high calling, When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be!! When we all see Jesus we will sing and shout the victory!!
