Find yourself a church to go to tonight. Stay out the club. My thought for today.
And remember...live Blessed
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before
Wow we are right at the end of 2015 and I really want to encourage each of us to leave some stuff in this year. Don't carry your baggage of pain, hurt, hate, unforgiven essential into the new year. Paul says you kniw I don't have all together but this is something that I have figured out, I have to put thing into perspective. I have to put things that are in the past in the past, so that I can reach for the future. I can not go forward looking in the past. I can't grasp the new things that God has for me if I am loaded down with the cares of the past.
I encourage you to ouse the next couple of days to unload your baggage. God has so many great things in store for you but you have to release the old to get to the new.
Happy Wednesday and Happy New Year God bless and remember that you have to live Blessed
I pray that everyone had a marvelous Christmas.
As we move closer to the end of the year I want encourage you to not be a sleep walking but to be a destiny walker. What I mean is that many of us are going through the motions of life everyday but we are asleep. Our eyes are open but we are oblivious to the things around us.
I want to encourage you to be a destiny walker. A destiny walker is someone who knows the plan of God for their life and walks in it. When I'm a destiny walker I don't get tripped up when you don't understand what God is doing in my life. Destiny walkers have vision that is written and it's plain, so it can easily be carried out.
My sister please walk into 2016 a destiny walker not a sleep walker. I have attached a cool video that will encourage you. live Blessed.
Wow its Christmas eve. Where did the time go? I hope that you have plans with those that you love. All of us can't be with family on the holidays but that doesn't mean you can't find loved ones to be with. Find someone in your congregation that is single and invite them over. Remember this is supposed to be a time of caring and sharing.
Have an awesome Christmas and as always live Blessed.
This will be short and sweet cause break has begun. Lol but I still want to do part on this universe of ours. The word for today is pray for your children. As parents, I don't think this responsibility stops even when they are grown. The attached picture is scriptures to pray while calling them in line.
It made me think of the song. Somebody prayed for me. Had me on their mind took the time to pray for me. I'm so glad they prayed, I'm so glad they prayed. I'm so glad they prayed for me.
Pray for your, along with the church babies. Have an awesome Wednesday and live Blessed.
I don't know about you but I have done no shopping. Lol so of you still need a little help, here are a few ideas.
Happy shopping and as always live Blessed
Wow ladies, can you believe we only have ten days left before we bid farewell to 2015? Have started your reflection and goal setting process? No I'm not talking a new years resolution that you won't keep. True goal setting for 2016.
It is imperative that we reflect on both the positive and negative things that have happened this year, because it is from both sides that we can gain knowledge to go forward. Reflection is important in gaining a focus for how we frame our going forward. For it is during this time that I can see where God has brought you from and how he made ways that we could not have made ourselves.
Have a great week crafting your goals.
Don't get so tied to the commercialism of Christmas, use it as a time to love on your family and friends. We truly don't know when our last time will be. Life will not come to an end if there is not a thousand gifts under the tree.
As always I admonish you to live Blessed.
As we move closer to the new year I thought the following article might be something to think about regarding building better credit. At some point all of us have made poor choices but with focus and a bit of time that can be fixed.
God wants all of us to prosper and be blessed and so do I so be dedicated to doing the work. As always live Blessed
For our Tuesday tool, the Lord said share this tool... https:/www.biblegateway.com.
Let's get back to the bible. Reading, studying, getting excited about the word. Sharing it with our friends and neighbors like when we first met the Lord. Seeking it for answers to life's problems. It's been on the best seller list for years. The great part is, there are so many versions so you can't say it's boring and I don't understand. The message bible will smack you right in the mouth with understanding. Try it and let me know how it works for you.
As always, have an awesome day and live Blessed.
Good morning friend (s),
Below is a challenge I was given and would like for you to share with others.
And as always...live Blessed
In our Sunday School class we were asked what we have learned about ourselves this past year, and what area in our lives do we want to work on perfecting in the upcoming year. My answer is below. Please share this with others and keep the challenge going.
1. My truth is not everybody's truth.
2. I don't need to respond to everything.
3. Being out of control is ok.
4. Wisdom is the chief thing...get some
5. I am gifted and talented. It okay to get credit sometimes.
6. Silence is not a bad thing...practice it.
7. More reading less other stuff.
Going through the holidays can be very difficult for those that grief/loss of a loved one. Traditions can pull people into patterns that lead to depression. So please keep this article in mind as you are with your friends and neighbors.
And as always have an awesome day and... live Blessed
Good morning. My friday find is on wichita on the cheap. Free food and events. Don't miss out.
Have an awesome friday and as always... live Blessed
Happy Thursday morning.
I pray that all is well with you and yours. Which brings me might thought for today...What in the devil is going on in our society? People are shooting people all over the place. If you have people in your family that are acting weird get th some help, medically and spiritually. Some of this is mental illness and some of this is sin sickness. We need alot a more Jesus. I know that we believe we are a stronger and wiser generstion, but truth is we are ever learning and never coming into the knowledge of the truth.
Truth kids need the behind tapped every now and again. All little kids should have to go sunday school or something equivalent. If you still live in my house, I'm the booga with the sugah, abide by the rules or get out. It doesnt require alot of intelligence to shoot someone but it does require some to have a conversation and resolve issues. Jesus is still the answer for the world today.
Not saying they are right, they are just my thoughts. Have an awesome day and ...live Blessed
I just wanted to share a quick word with you this morning.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
So my simple question is, what are listening to? So if faith cometh by hearing then we have to be listening to conversation that builds our faith. Conversations that push you to greatness and reinforce the power and word of God. Every bit of instruction we need is in the word.
Just short and simple this morning.
Evaluate who you are allowing yo speak in and over you and your family.
Have an awesome Wednesday and remember to... live Blessed
Hope you have slept off that turkey. We had an earthquake this morning ptl I did not feel this one.
Today's motivation is real simple don't reveal yourself too early. The attached picture says it all. Too often God has given us vision or revealed some revelation and before he can get out we are calling someone on the phone. Ask Joseph, telling your visions will get thrown in the pit . Allow God to perfect what he has shown you and in due season it will be revealed.
When the seed goes in the ground it takes time for germination to happen and for it to from seed to product. Why would the seed God has planted in you be any different?
Have an awesome Monday...and live Blessed
Check out the word for this Wednesday morning.
Psalms 77:11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. 12 I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds. 13 Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God? 14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
It is so easy to get our eyes on everything and everybody but God, and when we do we lose perspective. Especially at the holidays, when we don't feel like we measure up to others we can quickly forget what God has done for us.
The psalmist here is trying to talk himself out of being depressed and critical of God by remembering what had already been done. When you stop and look back over the mountain you've come over and the valleys you've crossed over you should be shouting right now.
So instead of being depressed and angry because everything is not so so, I'm going to mediate on you. Praise you that it is well. Praise that better days are coming. Praise you that my future is better than my past. Praise you that I got over, doesn't matter how, but I got over. Don't spend your time being stuck on the should've, could've, would've, but embrace the moment and give God thanks that it is well.
Have an awesome day... Live Blessed
Did you know?
Why has WhatsApp accessed my contacts 23,709 times in the last 7 days?
by BEN WOODS
Each time you install an app, you’re asked to accept the permissions it’s requesting to access the features on your phone. It’s a standard cost of entry for downloading pretty much any app, and particularly free ones.
If you’re not paying with money, you’re paying with your data.
But despite knowing that an app can access a particular feature, you probably mentally write it off as an infrequent occurrence, or perhaps, only when the app needs certain information.
That sort of thinking, however, doesn’t explain why WhatsApp has accessed my contacts nearly 23,709 times (and counting) in the last seven days.
I tried to ask the company multiple times, for more than a week, but got zero response.
Perhaps there’s a perfectly good reason why it’s accessing my contacts roughly twice each minute. Perhaps it polls my entire contact list, or specific ones, every single time the app is opened, or I receive a message, or send one. Or perhaps it updates every time a contact comes online?
If the company had responded, I’d be able to tell you why, but it hasn’t.
For comparison, Facebook Messenger, which I have also used in the same time period hasn’t accessed any of the permissions granted a single time.
Apps accessing these permissions huge numbers of times aren’t all that surprising to me – Uber and Waze needing to know where I am, for example. It’s also how they monetize the sale of that location data.
I’ve also used both these apps in the same time period: Uber accessed my location 111 times, while Waze, which I used for about 3-4 hours of driving, accessed my location 13,859 times (and my contacts 1,127).
It’s no surprise if badly coded apps lead to appalling battery life in your smartphone if a single app is polling it every 30 seconds for contacts. And that’s just one app, the overall effect on battery life must be incredible. Presumably there’s a knock-on effect on your data usage too.
With the introduction of Android M and more granular app permission controls (and the ability to revoke individual ones whenever you like) user management of when and how Android apps access user data gets a little easier, but most people aren’t on Android M yet.
Checking which apps access which permissions on older handsets is a little trickier, and in this case I used BlackBerry’s DTEK application that ships as standard on the Priv.
Battery technology is often lamented on smartphones – but perhaps a bit more focus should go on app developers, rather than device makers if you’re polling my phone every 30 seconds.

Here in my part of the state it is a very wet Wednesday morning. Whereever you are I hope you are safe and being blessed of the Lord. Today I just want us to look around and see what is happening in our society. I have never heard of so many people with cancer, in every form. There are enumerable cases of domestic violence. Wide spread acts of terror on all fronts. If there ever was a time to seek God, it is now.
Time to call sin, sin and wrong, wrong. Time to stop playing church and truly living a life for God. None of this is new information, just a reminder. A small break for station identification.
Can people see the Jesus in you or is he to hidden under all of the other stuff?
The good works, the shouting, and the regular church attendance, are all good but what is your relationship with God like? If you call him does readily know your name or do you have talk a minute for him to catch it?
IT IS TIME TO PRAY for our friends/family, our nation, neighborhood, school system, churches, leaders, places of employment, those people that work your nerve. Pray often enough that your voice is recognized in the heavens. The hour is closer then it has ever been.
Hebrews 10:19-21 So, friends, we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to God, into “the Holy Place.” Jesus has cleared the way by the blood of his sacrifice, acting as our priest before God. The “curtain” into God’s presence is his body.
22-25 So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.
Think on these things...Live Blessed.
Today is election day in some cities. Are you registered to vote? I know that many of you get dismayed at presidential elections because you believe your vote doesn't count. I can give you that one even though that's not 100% truth.
But if that is your belief then you should definitely be voting every other election. The link below, is only for ks, but I'm sure they jave the same thing in other states. It always you to see what area you Live in so you know who you're voting for.
It is responsibility as a citizen to vote for the best interest of your community. This is no Longer about party loyalty, or neighbours and family members area being cut off of programs, that are necessary, for some of their survival. Of you dont vote, you can't complain.
