New Year, New Beginning


I can’t believe 2013 is here already…. Time goes by really fast. Time is priceless and cannot be earned. What are you doing with your time? Are you making a difference, setting a good example with others and being who God called you to be? This is a time to start fresh… begin with day 01 and write new goals that will make a difference. This is a new year to start over and change things in our lives that need to be changed. This is a new beginning, time to stop bad habits and start good ones. Also be more polite to people even if some of them are rude. Saying please and thank you and even you’re welcome. Good manners make a huge difference in our lives and can take us a long way.  They can open doors that might otherwise be closed. Have more boundaries in your life, don’t allow people to walk all over you. Let your no be no and your yes be yes, but not in a rude way. So let’s start 2013 with a clean slate and be who we are supposed to be in Christ. I pray that you will meet your goals by the time 2013 ends.

Become a better me and learn how to crochet

When it’s all said & done

Learning to pursue what truly matters
Years ago, I got to a place in my life where things were going pretty well… I had everything I pretty much asked for. Yet I still had this vague feeling of discontentment. Something was just not right on the inside.
Have you ever felt that way? Maybe you’ve wondered, What’s wrong with me?, like I did.       
Although I wanted all of the “fruit” of God’s spirit – love, joy, peace, patience – operating in my life, I wasn’t seeking it. So spiritually speaking, I wasn’t a very deep person. I has my priorities backwards…as many of us do at times. We want the money, the house, the promotion or whatever that thing is, So we pursue that rather than the true treasure of God’s presence.
But just like a tree needs deep, wide- reaching roots in order to support big, strong branches that can withstand the harsh elements of the outdoors, Christians need to be deeply rooted and grounded in the Word of God. It’s His love that sustains us- not our “stuff,”

God Made Us UniQue Part 2

But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
                                                                                                                                        Jeremiah 18:4

Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you our Potter, and we all are the work of your hand.                                                                                                                                       Isaiah 64:8

·Marred – to detract from the perfection or wholeness of: spoil  

I know a lot of you girls have heard of the potter. For those that haven’t heard of the potter, it is a person that works with clay and forms it into a pot, using a machine and his hands. Potters work real hard forming clay into a pot. When the clay is marred, he has to redo his work until it comes out perfect. This is an awesome example on how God forms us. See God is the Pot…

A Lifestyle of Authentic Peace

I can’t overemphasize the importance of peace as a real and practical benefit of our covenant relationship with God. His peace should not be an infrequent surprise but an ongoing rule of our lives. The apostle Paul underscored the essential nature of peace in 2 Thessalonians 3:16.  Did you notice how crucial he considered peace to be? “At all times.” “In every way,” Peace can be possible in any situation.
Isaiah used the word peace twenty-six times. God continually promised peace when His captives returned wholeheartedly to the Lord. The familiar messianic passage, Isaiah 9:6, identifies peace with Christ as the “Prince of Peace,” The next verse connects the Prince of Peace to His reign: Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne. Many of us have memorized the words of Isaiah 26:3: You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trust in you.
Did you see any hints of a common denominator trying these scrip…
