Words of Encouragement

Sometimes in life
We face some trials and tribulations
But Abba Father wants us to know
That through it ALL, HE is with us
For HE has never left us nor forasken us.

There are times when it looks like 
bills are long and money is short, 
Bit I want to encourage you and let you know
That Jehovah-Jireh, your provider
See’s, understands and is willing to help you. Just go to HIM in prayer and HE will provide for you.
It may not come the way you “think” it will come, but I know that if you just BELIEVE that you receive what you ask for in prayer, you’ll see JEHOVAH-JIREH make provision for you.

Maybe you’re saying that NOTHING is going right for you. I understand for I, too have been there and I want to encourage you and let you know that the SOVEREIGN GOD just wants you to TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT UNTO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Sometimes you may feel like you are all alone, weak, helpless, but may I encourage you and tell you that the Word of GOD says in Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”. 

So dear hearts, be encouraged for the Sovereign GOD loves you, cares about you and wants to help you through whatever you are going through!

I love you but the Sovereign GOD loves you best!

Forgiveness

This evening, my husband taught on Unforgiveness, The Unforgivable Sin. He broke down the fact that we need to forgive and as we forgive, we free ourselves. He reminded us that if we don’t forgive, our Heavenly Father won’t forgive us. I need GOD’s forgiveness so I want to forgive EVERYBODY who has done me wrong and I hope all those whom I have done wrong can and will forgive me.

When we hold on to forgiveness, it’s like drinking poison. It brings on all types of problems that we don’t need.

Forgiveness is of GOD and forgiveness is good.

Newness of Life

This morning, I was doing my hair and I knew that I needed to take time to talk to my Heavenly Father. I’ve been feeling “out of the loop” for some time, especially and most specifically since I had to endure 3 1/2 months of excruciating pain in my right hip due to a spontaneous laboral tear.
However, this morning as I talked to my spiritual Father, Yahweh God, I wanted to come OUT of this place of pain, sadness, uncertainty, and yes, even fear.
I was going through the motions of being happy, but it was just a facade. For 3 1/2 months, I had been living a secret lonely, sad, fearful life but I acted as if ALL WAS WELL, but this morning, my SPIRITUAL FATHER, YAHWEH, breathed the BREATH OF LIFE into me. I read the Scriptures and then the Holy Spirit led me to an article about Lo Debar and I tell you I have been blessed. See, Lo Debar is a place of “no word” and “no life”. I had been living there for 3 1/2 months. I was “out of my rightful position” but was expecting to gain spiritual and earthly possession that I thought was due to me, being a child of the Most High. However, I wasn’t receiving because I was out of position! This morning, I have been moved back into my spiritual position and now I am waiting to receive my spiritual and natural possessions. Glory to YAHWEH, my Spiritual Father, my Heavenly Father! It feels GREAT to be back!

My Song To Adonai

ADONAI, I need YOU more and more each day
Without YOU, I can’t find my way!
ADONAI, I need YOU to be by my side
ADONAI, In YOU I DO abide.
ADONAI, I praise YOU
YOU are my peace!
ADONAI, I praise YOU
In YOU I find relief!
ADONAI I need YOU
so much more
ADONAI I NEED YOU
To rebuke, correct and restore.
ADONAI I love YOU
YOU saved my soul
ADONAI I love YOU
Because YOU made me whole!

The simple things in my life mean a lot

My husband and I just had a fun time. We went to the store, he in his powered wheelchair and me in the manual wheelchair. It was a struggle for me to navigate the sidewalks but there were some very nice people out there today who were offering to help me. Thank You God for that. On the way back home, I had spent ALL OF MY ENERGY so my husband suggested that I hold on to the back of HIS WHEELCHAIR and he pull me home. I did it and it was so much fun. It felt like being on some type of amusement park ride. Now we’re back home and he is cooking breakfast on that beautifully, just cleaned stove (I cleaned it this morning at 6 o’clock). FUN, FOOD and LOVE with the Scott’s. Enjoy your day!

My Lesson From Cleaning My Oven

ImageThis morning, I had a burst of energy out of nowhere. I got up and mopped the entire apartment – THIS, all before I had my cup of coffee. 
So, after I mopped the floors, I proceeded to clean the bathroom. It’s small so that wasn’t a big deal. After that, I thought I was done but I go into the kitchen to get my cup of coffee when I made the choice to open the oven door and see how dirty it was in there. Now, I had just cleaned the oven about a month ago and I had a very hard time doing it. However, today, I had supernatural strength to do it, and do it completely from my wheelchair. 
I started out looking at the stove and at first, I felt completely defeated because it was a true challenge (just looking at it). I sprayed the oven cleaner in it and closed the oven door, deciding that I would go back later and clean it. However, I started looking at the stove and realized that there was some other cleaning that needed to be done. Some of the cleaning was not visible to the eye of a person who may come by to visit because for the most part, my stove stays clean, but it was the side of the stove and behind the knobs that needed cleaning. When I pulled off the knobs, I found yucky grease. Thick, yellow grease. It was hidden, so I didn’t know it was there. The side of the stove, well, I never look at it unless I drop something near it. When I looked at it this morning, I saw grease and dirt. I felt ashamed because I consider myself an excellent housekeeper. So, after I got over the shame, I cleaned the side of the stove and then I took off each knob and cleaned them, making sure to get each nook and cranny. I cleaned the frame where the knobs sit, making sure to get all of the grease that was caked up.
Then it was time to move on to the inside of the oven. Lord, You gave me strength to do this so I am going to do it for your glory. I am going to make this oven clean so You will be proud of me and if anybody comes in here, I won’t have to be embarrassed, not that anybody would come here to scrutinize my stove/oven…lol. 
I began the process of cleaning the oven. I was slightly intimidated because I was doing the cleaning from my wheelchair and I felt that I couldn’t do an adequate job. I huffed and puffed while trying to bend and lean into the oven to scrub it with my shiny scrubbing sos-like pad. The stains were stuck on pretty hard and it seemed like I was going to have a difficult time trying to do a good job of cleaning the oven. However, I told the stain that I won’t be defeated and that I was not going to leave until the oven was clean. I had made up my mind that it was going to take some scrubbing and some perseverance to get that big, hard stain, but I was determined. I leaned into that oven with a strong desire to defeat the stain. I won. I did it. After about 30 minutes, the big intimidating stain was GONE!!! I felt victorious. However, there were some smaller stains that were more trouble to get off than the big stain. Those stains, though smaller, posed a bigger problem for me because I had to scrub harder and longer. I was not going to be defeated so I scrubbed and scrubbed. The stain got smaller and smaller but guess what, There was a piece of that stain that just would not budge. No matter how hard I scrubbed, that stain would not budge and guess what? That little stain is still there. I felt defeated by that one little stubborn stain, but then the Lord started speaking to me. He said, “Sometimes it takes a little longer to get rid of a stain that has been burned on. The big stain was not a problem for you to get rid of and that’s good but now let me help you get rid of this stain, this problem, this thing that seems so hard to get rid of. It’s not as hard as it seems, but it is going to take more than this one time to get rid of it. Relax and when it’s time to get rid of it, you will see how easy it will be. Don’t try to force it because in your forcing it, you could mess it up. (See when I try to get off a real hard stain, I will use a knife or other instrument and it does scar the surface). I don’t want to leave you with more scars so don’t try to scrape it. Don’t try to scrub it anymore. I’ll help you take care of it. Just give it some more time. When it’s time, that stain, just like the others, will be gone too.”

I felt satisfied. I felt like GOD understands that I want to be clean inside and out….clean from any hard stain that may still remain. I realize that some things are easy for me to overcome, while some things are not and that even in that, GOD has let me know that I can relax and allow HIM to help me to get rid of the “stain”. The stain in the oven is small. I’m the one stressing to get it out. I couldn’t but it doesn’t mean I’m defeated. It just means that when it’s time to get it out, it will be out. 
Wow. Wow. Wow. 
I’m looking for my next level of cleansing. I know that I am clean because of the Blood of JESUS, but I also know that there is a little more of me that needs to be cleaned up….Some things I have held on to that just need to go, but GOD will help me in HIS time and the result will be great!

Women, Teach Your Daughters Their Worth!!!

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=662308237133824&set=vb.650541808310467&type=2&theater

In the disturbing video attached to the link above, there is obviously an adult female who is videotaping these elementary school girls as they “twerk”. I am completely against this and feel as though this adult is teaching these girls the wrong values. She is teaching these girls that their worth is in their booties. These young girls are learning how to pop their booties and this could easily lead to promiscuity at a very young age. 

Women, please teach your daughters, female neighbors, nieces, female cousins, etc that their worth is NOT in their booties. Teach them to get an education so that they can get a great career later on in life. Show them this video and let them know that this could follow them all of their lives as things tend to go viral and will remain on video forever. We don’t want to let little girls think that it is ok for them to be shaking their booties just because celebrities are doing it and not being raped or molested. Remember this: celebrities have security following them around so they are being protected. 

Unfortunately, if you, woman, don’t know your worth, I can’t expect you to teach these young girls their worth. Instead of showing them videos or putting them in videos where they are “twerking”, show them some videos of positive young children who are making a difference. Show them videos of young children getting into college at early ages. Show them that they, too, can be someone who can make a difference. 

This was no dance class. This was just somebody who decided to gather some girls and get them to shaking their booties and then post it to a social media site for all types of people to see.

WOMEN, KNOW YOUR WORTH……THEN TEACH YOUR DAUGHTERS, NIECES, FEMALE COUSINS, AND FEMALE NEIGHBORS THEIR WORTH.

Don’t GET Ready! Be READY For Jesus Christ’s Return

On Thursday, November 14, 2013, on Let’s Talk About It (blogtalkradio), I will be discussing “Don’t GET Ready ~ BE READY For Jesus Christ’s Return”.

In recent weeks, there have been some serious natural disasters around the world. In some cases, WARNINGS were given so the people could get away from the destruction. Some heeded the warning while some didn’t. This is the same for the return of JESUS CHRIST. The WARNING HAS BEEN SENT OUT but there are are some who are not listening. There are some who think that since JESUS hasn’t come yet, HE probably won’t come any time soon. Don’t be like the five foolish virgins in Matthew 25:1-13…“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. 11 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ 12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.

“Don’t GET Ready, BE READY For Jesus Christ’s Return”. AMEN.

What To Do With Stress

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea.” (Psalm 46:1 -2)

 Stress, distress, anxiety, hopelessness = The spirit of giving up

God loves you, God loves you, God loves you! It’s so hard to hold on to that truth  when things are coming our way, tests & trials are hitting hard, or we’re overwhelmed and can’t see a way out. God loves you through all of that. We need to learn to live in His love, grace and strength.

So what do we do with stress? Stop it when and even before it starts! Wake up everyday and make a firm decision that no matter what happens your going to trust God! No matter what your feelings & emotions are saying, no matter what it
