I am who I am....

But by the grace of God I am what I am ~ 1 Corinthians 15:10

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall......Look into a mirror and say I am unique..I am rare..I am a child of God and I am what I am because of His grace! Being a Christian isn't an easy thing to be. So many worldly pressures in our face everyday. Even, at 32 years old, I still have worldly pressures knocking at my door. The world wants us to be something other than what God wants us to be. The world expects so much out of us but if you really look at it; it's things that will wear us down and sometimes can cause destruction. We can get caught up into materialistic things and as we dig deeper to find satisfaction it eats away at us and before we know we are so distant from God that we don't put Him first anymore. If we read God's words daily and pray daily and build a strong bond with Him the world cannot touch us. God wants us to be ourselves; He wants you to be legendary you! The cross is before us and the world is behind us. The world has nothing for us but God has a beautiful eternal life waiting for us...all you have to do is say Yes, Lord, Yes I open my heart, my soul, my mind to You, Lord!!!

Be careful what you throw away...

Be careful what you throw away it might be the best thing you ever had. When something is good you want to keep it; you don't want to set it aside or throw it away cause someone else might grab it up and you won't have it ever again.....God wants us to have the best and if He gives you the cream of the crop and you decide you don't want it then it's your loss. When you sit back and think you wish you had may be too late..So cherish what you have.

Too good to be true...

Ever look at something and say "That is too good to be true." We all have! Sometimes it can be the case but when God sends it to you it's His will and it is His perfect will. Don't be afraid of a blessing God has sent you. When you pray for something and God answers your prayer- Embrace it and Praise God!!! When God places a blessing in your life cherish it and know it is a gift from God and it is good and it is true! With God all things are possible. God bless!

Let go and Let God

I posted this a while back and I thought about it and had to repost it again. We all need to realize that it is the Lord's battle and we need to give it all to Him. No matter what is going on in our lives He is in control and we need Him to help us through the thick and thin of life. God bless!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to......


If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ......


If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth .....


If someone has angered you


If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......


If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......


If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents


If you have a bad attitude .......


If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......


If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.......


If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves......


If you're feeling depressed and stressed


If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to......


Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.


Get Right or Get Left. Think about it, and then


"The Battle is the Lord's!"


The last couple of weeks I have found myself praying even more. I have even been caught praying at work as my coworker thought I was asleep at my desk. Prayer is a deep, powerful intimate conversation between you and God and He always wants to hear what you have to say. If it's worth fighting for....then pray about it!
I am reading a book entitled "Praying God's Words by Beth Moore". I needed this book and God knew I needed it. For sometime it has been on my floor along with other stacks of books and today I picked it up and started to read it. Circumstances can make us break and fall apart but prayer can make us feel hope and give us some light.
Prayer is our lifeline to God. Pray without ceasing. ~1 Thessalonians 5:17. We should pray about everything. When someone has wronged us, broken our heart or if a someone needs a lifting or we are thinking about doing something- Pray. You can pray anytime..anywhere. The more you pray in places outside of church or home, the more naturally Christ will come to mind there. All settings are settings for prayer. It will seem much less like a separate, Godless world, and more of a whole in which the Spirit is afoot everywhere. Setting a schedule helps to create a habit or pattern of prayer, and turns the believer back to God throughout the day. It's not about how you do it or how many times a day you do it, it's about turning to God in the midst of what you do during the day, helping to keep the whole day in prayer. Prayer brings us closer to God and God always has time for us no matter what. Always remember...when you call on Jesus..ALL things are possible!

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours." Mark 11:24

For my price is far above rubies...

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. ~Proverbs 31:10

The world wants us to be what it wants us to be. I want to be the woman God wants me to be and nothing less. I do not need to conform to the world in order to fit in. As long as God is proud of me that is all that matters.

I have been beat down, kicked around and yet I still stand. What I cannot understand is why a man does not want a Godly woman? If I were a man I would rather be with a woman who praises the Lord instead of a woman that praises materialistic things. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. ~Proverbs 31:30. A Godly woman is a woman that needs to be cherished for a woman of God is a gift..a very rare gift.

Here comes the rain....

A raindrop is the bravest creation of God...It's not afraid to fall.

We all come to a point where we are afraid of something. I read this on some one's Facebook status and thought wow how brave is a raindrop; it's not afraid to fall. That raindrop is a creation from God and God has each raindrop in His hand like He has us in His hands. I sometimes find myself building up walls because of fear..fear of trusting, fear of getting hurt, fear of almost everything. All I have to do is turn it over to Jesus. Everything I go through He is there; it has already passed through His hands. Sometimes there is rain at the end of a perfect day but Jesus is always there no matter what. After thinking and praying I know I can be brave like a raindrop because God has me in His hands! I went through my Bible and highlighted these scriptures. Hope they help you as much as they help me! God bless!

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ~Psalm 27:1

Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I, the Lord your God,
hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
I am the one who helps you.” —Isaiah 41:10,13

Do not be afraid of sudden terror
or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
for the Lord will be your confidence
and will keep your foot from being caught. —Proverbs 3:25-26
