Can I have just a few minutes of your time? ~GOD

God wants a little bit of our time so He can share with us His love and His words. Tonight in discipleship class we talked about being diligent and disciplined. There are four steps in completing a course of action: desire, decision, determination and discipline. Consider a person who desires to meet with God before going to work. he realizes that in order to do so he must get up early so he decides to get up at 6:30am. The next day he oversleeps because his desire and his decision by themselves could not get him out of bed. He then determines to use an alarm clock to help him get up. But the real test comes when the alarm goes off. Discipline must come into focus. He must shut off the alarm clock and choose not to go back to sleep. Good habits can be developed as a result of consistent discipline. Consistency requires trust in the strength God gives. It involves heart, thought and effort on a daily basis. Jesus Christ gave all His love and all His time to die on the cross for us; we owe it to Him to give Him our time and our love. Make no excuses on why you can't spend time with God in any situation. God doesn't give you excuses and He is always there for you. Why can't you be there for him? Don't let it be too late.

How does your garden grow?

See to it that no one misses the Grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. ~ Hebrews 12:15

Does your garden look beautiful with vibrant colored flowers or is it over grown with weeds? Tending to a garden can be hard work. Tending to a Christian life can be hard work as well. Just like a garden can become overrun by weeds so can the life of a Christian. In our walk it is very important to watch what and who comes into our garden because just like a weed it will come in and suffocate what we have planted and soon our garden will start to die. Just like with our journey with God. If we are not careful the devil can send forth his demons (weeds) to lurk around what we have established. We all know that what took you years to build can be destroyed over night. Be careful who you call friends because they reflect who you are! We also need to remember we can't mingle and mix two different lives together and expect God to be ok with it. If we are for God we need to act like it. When we don't we are allowing "weeds" to invade our "garden". Weeds suffucate and drain the soil of important nutrients and prevent beautiful things to grow. As in life if we allow one "weed" to come into our life it can multiply into more and soon enough your spiritual life is dying by taking us away from God. As we tend to our garden we need to sow seeds. A great verse to read is Matthew 13:3-9
3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
God wants us to be a successful seed; to grow in His glory. Let's look in our garden and clear out the weeds that prevent us from being what God wants us to be.

Why do I hold on?

Why do I hold on when I feel like there is no hope and no point...because God asked me to. The pain we feel doesn't compare to the joy that's coming. God has a perfect plan for all of us and He knows how the ending is. When I feel like giving up God gives me a little push and whispers "Hold on....the joy is coming!" God has faith in us and we need to have faith in Him because every promise He promises us- He keeps! He will never let us down. So when God tells you to hold on...Hold on..He has something good in store for you!

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. ~Song of Solomon 1:2

When the world walks out.....God is always there!

I have learned the more I am not into the world I see things differently. The world can be cold and cruel and it's sad to say it's not going to get better. The world has nothing for me but God has everything for me. When I needed the world...the world was no where to be found. Every time when the walls came crumbling down- the people I thought were my friends turned their backs but God has always been there with open arms. God, I thank you for being here for me. I know I stumble but You are always there to help me. Thank you, God!!!

" not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2,9

"If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." John 15:19-20

"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world." John 17:14-18

I have learned the more I am not into world I see things differently. The world can be cold and cruel and it's sad to say it's not going to get better. The world

Have you ever loved somebody....

Have you ever loved someone that took your breath away...someone who even the thought of them made you smile? I miss everything....I loved you then, I love you now, and I will always love you!

This past week I lost a very loving friend named Ruth. She was the sweetest person you could ever talk to. She added me as a friend on facebook and we began to talk and become friends. I think God had a hand in that!! Everyday in my inbox was an email of encouraging words and advice. She enjoyed helping people. I have caught myself already looking for emails that I know are not there. I miss her so much! It's hard to become friends with someone and then lose them. She told me in an email that when God gives you a gift- cherish it because that is the greatest gift you can ever get. I cherish her words and will always remember our conversations. She also told me to always tell the people you love that you love them because one day you won't be able to. Ruth was a wonderful friend and I know that she is in heaven looking down. Ruth, you will always be in my heart and thank you for all your wise words! Thank you for all your help and all the faith you had! Lord, I thank you for putting her in my life! Rest in peace Ruth aka GrannyB! I love you dear friend!!

In memory of Ruth Brasington
Angels in the room

She’s close to death , but she is not afraid
Angels waiting for the order, to carry her away
They’re gathered around her bed side
She’s the only one who sees
She will draw her final breath , and away with them she’ll leave

Angels in the room , she’s run her final race
They come to carry her to heaven
there to see her savior’s face
Angels in the room, to take her to a great reward
No need for sadness or gloom, there are angels in the room

He’s not long for this world, there’s a better one to come
He’s think’in about that great reunion , with the father and the son
His family by his bedside, he says children can’t you see
Angels standing all around us, it’s time for me to leave

Angels in the room, he’s run his final race
They come to carry him to heaven
There to see his savior’s face
Angels in the room, to take him to his great reward
No need for sadness or gloom, there are angels in the room

When it comes a time for leaven
And you see the fights are long
You won’t have to worry friend
You won’t be alone

Angels in the room, when you run your final race
They will carry you to heaven
There to see your savior’s face
Ooh.. Angels in the room, to take you to your great reward
No need for sadness or gloom, they’ll be angels in the room
No need for sadness or gloom, there are angels in the room

Walk this way....

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but the companion of fools suffer harm ~ Proverbs 13:20.

Never underestimate the power of bad influence. Influence can be invisible but powerful. It can grab hold, take you under and drown you in misery. When God lights the path; the devil will do his best to put stumbling blocks along the way to trip you up. He will make his bad look more enticing than the good of God. The devil is very tricky and can cause you to be blind that is when we fall into the trap. We have to be careful of who and what we associate with. At first, it may look good and we think " Once won't hurt" Once can be the too many. Be careful with the company you keep. I always love to sit and talk with older people. They are wise and they have experience and not to mention give some good advice! I have listened to advice of younger people and I have found myself in a world of mess and sometimes I feel more doubtful than I did. We should listen to the wise because a lot of them have traveled the road we are on now!

Where will you go child?

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. ~John 10:27

Isn't it so wonderful to know when we leave this earth we have a beautiful eternal home to go to! I sometimes sit and think how it is going to feel when God looks at me and says "Well done, Jennifer!" There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank God for all the things He has done for me and I never regret a moment that I follow Him. My life with Jesus Christ has brought on a new perspective on things. I look at things a lot differently. I forgive easier than I did. I love deeper. I cherish and thank God for every moment that I am alive! Even though my heart gets broken sometimes and some days end with rain I trust God and know He will take care of me. No matter how bad the world gets...I will still follow Jesus Christ!
