Wednesday Word

Good morning

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

Monday Motivation

Good Morning, 
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.

Good morning
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.

Monday Motivation

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.

Good morning, 
My thoughts this morning;  Let's pray for those that have incarcerated loved ones over this holiday.  We tend to focus on those that have died but it your parent(s) is in jail they are still absent from the home. Pray for their relationship, their heart, healing, reconciliation,  love,  peace and most off salvation.
Just my thoughts this morning. Pray for a sistah this weather...ugh.
Anyway remember to live Blessed

Good morning.
I just want to share with you from a Billy Graham devotional this morning.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. — Matthew 2:10

Every year people write me saying how much they dread Christmas. often their complaint stems from how busy they will be, or how much money they will spend.

Did those wise men who journeyed hundreds of miles across the desert to seek out the infant Jesus ever feel that way? After all, it took months to make the arduous trip, and they had gone to great expense to provide gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh for the new Child.

I doubt it. in fact, as their journey neared its end we read they had “exceedingly great joy.” what made the difference? Their focus was totally on Jesus, the one who would be called “Immanuel,... God with us” (Matthew 1:23).

Don’t let this Christmas season overwhelm you. Don’t feel you have to do everything, or go into debt just to impress other people. Focus instead on Jesus.

Take time every day to read the prophecies of His coming and the wonderful story of His birth. Make this Christmas one of “exceedingly great joy”!

I pray that your Wednesday is is awesome...live Blessed

Good morning.
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.

PERFECTING CHALLENGE:
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.

Wednesday Word

Goodmorning 
Upon waking, I ask God what to share with you this morning. He said "Pray for the nation".
I will be the first to tell you I don't agree with most of what is happening right now in our government and especially with the political candidates we have before us, but God said pray for them. Because this kind will only come out by fasting and praying. What is this kind? This kind of sin, corruption, evil and deviant behavior. All of us have talked about it but have truly prayed about other?

We have never had a time where we "at peace" but we have so many killed in gun violence. Interesting enough, for however many we have heard about, there are many many more that are totally silent. There is no media coverage, no real investigation and a bogus determination of death. I know we are busy, I know we are on a thousand committees but it is time to pray. Don't wait until it hits your family to hit your knees. 


Here are some scriptures to help you pray for our nation
Have an awesome day and... 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

Wednesday word

Good morning
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
