Merry Late Christmas ya'll!!

Sorry guys! I was so busy with things that I didnt post anything. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had a awesome Christmas. I spent it with dear friends and family. Zachary got all he wanted this year. I have been staying at the hospital with my grandfather on the weekends to give my dad relief. Boy! It is becoming very tiring BUT!!! Yesterday, my grandfather rededicated his life to Jesus Christ. That was such a beautiful moment! That was the best gift of all!
A new year is approaching and fast! So many things to look forward to and so many things to get done. I pray everyone has a wonderful, healthy and sucessful new year! Always remember..Put God first and the rest will fall into place! God bless!

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. ~Matthew 6:33

Take the time to smell the roses....

I have always been the type of person to put everyone else ahead of me. Helping people is one thing I enjoy. I realized that sometimes I get into helping people so much that I don't look back on what a difference I have made. I have been reading a book called What I learned from God while gardening. It talked about how we help "weed" other people's garden but we don't take the time to look back on what a beautiful garden God created through us. Lately, I have been so busy helping other people that I have not looked at what God did through decided to take the time to smell the roses. I called a handful friends that I helped through the years and caught up on how things were going. As expected, these friends are doing very well. It felt so good to know that I helped someone who needed help. Not only did they get the help they needed but I was able to witness to them. They have given their life to the Lord and are doing very well. I am very happy to see this "garden" grow in His glory! Always take the time to look back on what you did for probably made a world of difference in their life. God bless!

Getting Physically and Spiritually Fit

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
1 Timothy 4:8

We all want to be healthy and happy! Where do we find the time? My grandfather being in the hospital and our office getting ready for DHEC has been keeping me busy. But!.....I am finding the time to spend with God and get in shape. I have been doing my Bible study nightly and been walking at the park with my new walking partner after work. After Christmas, me and some friends are going to be working out at church..yes our church has a gym. I'm feeling great and doing my best to get in shape physically and spiritually. I am blessed to have so many wonderful friends and to have someone in my life who motivates me and wants me to feel good. God closes one door and opens another. We all should find the time to becoming physically and spiritually fit! It feels so great!!! God bless!

The will of God

The will of God will never take you,
Where the grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the arms of God cannot support you,
Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
Where the power of God cannot endow you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the army of God cannot protect you,
Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the authority of God cannot overrule for you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
Where the Word of God cannot feed you,
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

"Everything happens for a purpose.
We may not see the wisdom of it all now
but trust and believe in the Lord
that everything is for the best."

On this day God wants me to know....

... that today you have a cause for celebration. Today, you should celebrate what an unbelievable life you have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make you stronger. Just as a gem cannot be polished without friction, nor can a life be perfected ...without trials. Take a time to acknowledge your life and to praise yourself.

On my facebook I have an app that sends me things like this. I needed to hear this! So many times I look at the hardships as failures but they are not. We all go through trials that make us who we are. Sometimes the devil hears us pray and he will play with our minds. God's promises, prayers and words are always true and will shine through. They don't come over night so when I pray about something and I feel like an answer comes fast..I know that something isnt right. I talk with God and ask again if this is what he wants. The devil likes to trick us into thinking its the best decision. Before making a sudden move..think about...pray a little more on it and God will show you the true path to follow.

Last night was my first BYW meeting with the girls at church. I had a blast. We talked about praying. I learned a lot on praying and I know it will help me be a better prayer warrior.
