Thankgiving and Praises!

>> Wednesday, November 25, 2009

There is so much to be thankful for!
Enter his gates with thanksgiving enter his courts with praise be thankful unto him and bless his name! Ps 100:4
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts you are called in one body, be ye thankful Col 3:15
Thanksgiving is one day set aside for gratefulness. That is great! A day we can purpose in our hearts to show gratitude. I bet most of us thou enjoy being thankful alot more than just one day out of the year. Especially since the scriptures tell us to enter in His presence with praise and be thankful unto Him and bless His name! That is an everyday kinda verse, as we come before Him that the conditions of hearts are right before HIM!
As we let the peace of God rule in our hearts we are reminded we are in one body (the body or family of Jesus Christ) and we should be thankful. Our families are extended as far as the east is to the west. There are no boundaries with God and His church. We are just as much related to our sisters and brothers in our local churches as we are to those who are in third world countries.
Today how grateful I am for the men and women who traveled acrossed the sea to come to a new world that gives me the freedom of my speech, freedom of religion, and the freedom to live for Jesus. I am thankful for the men and women to this day that give of themselves to retain that freedom I so desperately love. I am grateful for Patrick Henry who was bold enough to proclaim "Give me Liberty or give me death."
So much to name, I am thankful for one more man that gave his life that I may have a freedom, the freedom from death! His name is Jesus Christ. He gave himself as a sacrifice for us, he laid himself down on the cross, to be willingly nailed and hanged, that you and I would not have to suffer death. Through His death He gave us LIFE and LIFE more abundant if we walk in HIM. If we confess, repent, and believe that Jesus the son of God we will have eternal life.
Rom 3:10 there are none righteous no not one
Rom 3:23 all have sinned and come short of the glory of God
Rom 6:23 the wages of this sin is death
Good News!
Rom 5:8 while we were yet sinners He died for us
John 14:6 Jesus is the way the truth and the life no man cometh to the Father but by HIM
1John 1:9 if we confess our sins He is faithful to forgive
Rom 10:9,13 Confess with our mouth and believe with our hearts that God has raised HIM from the dead you shall be saved, For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with his mouth confession is made unto salvation.
John 3:36 he that believeth on the son hath everlasting life.
Today let us be thankful, we have been given a gift of freedom and everlasting life in Jesus Christ.
I am thankful for Jesus, Holy Spirit and my BIBLE, my soulmate, my four precious children, family, friends, church, provisions, my voice that I can proclaim His praises and the privilege to serve the King of the Universe, my King! Praising and Blessing His Holy Name! May you be blessed this Thanksgiving season.~with much love for the brethren~Debbie


God loves you

>> Tuesday, November 17, 2009

GOOD MORNING!!! the Lord woke me up to such a wonderful verse in scripture. He reminded me that He loves us with an unconditional love, and everlasting love, there is nothing we did to earn it nor anything we can do to loose it! Hag 2:23 is where i turned this morning, put your name in the blank spaces:
In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee 0 _________, my servant daughter of ______, saith the Lord, and I will make thee a signet; for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
________ God not only loves you, he has drawn you and forgiven you. There is nothing you can do to seperate yourself from the amazing love of Jesus. Bathe in that all day, the amazing love of Jesus covers you, washes you clean and makes you shine and sparkle for HIM!

Lam 3:22-25 tell us His mercies keep us from being consumed and his compassions are renewed every morning and they fail not, GREAT IS HIS FAITHFULNESS!!! Make the Lord your portion and have hope only in HIM, the Lord is good to the soul that seeks and waits on HIM.


Is Jesus Enough?

>> Monday, November 9, 2009

How often are we called into ministry with a fresh mind of what Jesus has asked of us, only to find ourselves loosing sight of that very call? I think on the scriptures when Jesus fell asleep on the boat in Mark chapter 4. The guys were on their way in obedience finding themselves without Jesus, they were operating in their own strength. This is a detriment to ministry and one that most experience falling into. Are we loving our callings, our ministries or our gifts or are we loving Jesus? Is Jesus enough?

We can become so busy in "routine" that we become rushed and stressed. I for one do not believe stress is of God, it can be used for God, but in a stressed state we are not surrendered nor in the Spirit. There was nothing rushed or stressed about Jesus. Not even in the storm.

In our busyness, we can easily oversight our quiet times, our prayer times, our purpose and our mission. The enemy is slick to send in a barrage of distractions all looking to be "good" things but not "the" thing God has called us to. We must be on guard at all times that the very thing that Jesus has asked us to do, He will complete it. Jesus said lets go to the other side, they started out and became fearful with the first sign of resistance. Jesus arose and rebuked the sea and calmed the waves. Why are we so fearful? Why do we so easily get caught up in everything but what God has called us to do? Why do we get sidetracked?

A very simple answer; we are not sitting and resting at His feet. We are running in front of Him, around Him, along side of Him but we are not walking side by side embraced by Him. There is such a difference. Why is Jesus not enough for most of us, why? What are we looking for? Where can we find it outside the God of the universe?

Allow Jesus to be enough and watch the Peace come over you just as it had the seas. Love Jesus more than ministry, more than service, more than the supernatural occurrences that come with the Power of God. Just love Jesus more, be still and allow the peace of God to rule your hearts!!!


Michelle's Baby Shower

>> Saturday, November 7, 2009

We were so happy for Michelle today! We celebrated and showered her with love and prayers for the upcoming arrival of her baby _____(?). What made it so different was the circle of friends and family holding hands and prayin God's blessings over her and her family. How beautiful when God's daughters come together to lift each other up. I was blessed, the room was filled with the Holy Spirit and the beauty of God in each woman. We are very thankful to have Jesus and what a different He makes in our lives. Please keep Michelle in your prayers as she may have to go C-section Dec. 18th (along with our dear friend Kellie the same day, in the same hospital) how great is that!!!!
