Growing in Christ: Cleaning up

The light in my dining room has been out for two days now. This morning I finally have gotten around to changing it.
As I changed the light bulb, a  once darken living room, was now brightly lit ! Things that were not visible in the midst of darkness, were now very visible! Areas that need throughly cleaning, could now be attended to, as the light poured into the room.
Christ is this light in our life! He shines brightly, on areas in our life, that needs our attention. He shines that we may clean up our walk with Him, and allow nothing to hinder that growth. He also shines on those things we have hidden, revealing all!
Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.
Heavenly Father I come to You in the name of Jesus! Lord, thank You for always revealing the things that need to be attended to! Lord, Your light brings out everything that is hidden! Nothing is ever, not know to You! 
May we take these opportunities, to c…

Growing in Christ: Returning Home

Angel flew away! My daughter Resham has a homing pigeon, who we had raised, since she was a baby! 
Daily Resham, had been teaching her to recognize her home. Grooming her, for her first flight away from home.
Well, Angel flew off for the very first time, and did not come back home! 
The first day, I kept a watch for her, and even said a prayer for her, but no bird! The second day, the same thing! Day three, came and went, and still no, Angel. :(
Well, after not seeing her for three days; I just gave up on that little bird! But, I guess was in for a great surprise...
When my family and I had return from running errands . There outside waiting for us was Angel! Angel had return home!!! Hallelujah!
That day, I was reminded how my daughter's patients, love, and training had paid off! Angel return home! Just like raising our children in Christ! If you train them well in the Lord! They will always return home to Jesus! 
Proverbs 22:6  Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old…

Growing in Christ: keep doing Good

Up early this morning, taking FIL to the bank. I am looking forward to enjoying every moment of this day! Because Jesus is alive, and still on His throne!!
The bible continuously tells us to do good, and keep on doing good! Why? Because at the end of this life, your reward is heaven, and eternally life with our Heavenly Father!
1 Corinthians 9:24-25(MSG) 24-25 You’ve all been to the stadium and seen the athletes race. Everyone runs; one wins. Run to win. All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. You’re after one that’s gold eternally.
1 Corinthians 9:24 [ Striving for a Crown ] Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.
Heavenly Father I come to You in the name of Jesus! Lord, thank You for allowing me to continue to finish running this race! Lord, You have given me Your strength, Grace, and Your wisdom, which is all I need to accomplish what You have set before me!
I am…

God's love Still Saves Souls!!

1 John 4:7-8New King James Version (NKJV)Knowing God Through Love7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.





Growing in Christ: Live for Jesus

Goooood morning King Jesus! Goooood morning Beautiful family, and friends!
Live your life unto the Lord 24/7! God knows all, and see all! No room for lukewarm Christians in Heaven! One foot in the world, and one foot in church! You must be on fire for Christ, with both feet planted in Him!
2 Timothy 2:19(MSG) 19 Meanwhile, God’s firm foundation is as firm as ever, these sentences engraved on the stones: God knows who belongs to him. spurn evil, all you who name God as God!
Enjoy your weekend !

Growing in Christ: Content

Being content with all the blessings God has poured out into my life, has brought me great peace ! My focus is not on gaining earthly possessions! My focus is heavenly bound ! 
John 3:16 For Godsoloved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Growing in Christ: The Great Reward

Sit down! Don't touch that! Leave the dog alone! Who put the toothpaste in the bathtub?
I seriously see why my hair is turning grey at 36! LOL
There are many days that my kids drive me nuts! However, I continue to raise them in the Lord. It's not always easy to do! Especially raising seven children!!
I know as I continue to walk in my calling, of being a stay at home mom. I will see the great rewards through all that God has destine for my children's life. As I raise them to love the Lord, with all their heart, mind, and soul!
Never stop praying for your kids! Never stop believing God to keep them on the right path!
Place your children in God's hands, because at the end of the day, everything will be alright! Just have faith in God, and believe!
Galatians 6:9-109 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith…

Sunday Bible Verse

2 Timothy 4:17 17 But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, andthatall the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

Growing in Christ: Not a sinner

I often time hear many people call themselves sinners. Especially those who are Christians. Now those who do not know Christ, have label themselves correctly! However, many Christians are missing the entire point of the bible.
Picture yourself sitting at your desk, or a table. You have a nice, cold glass of red juice on the table, in a cup. You also have an important piece a paper, there.
Now see yourself accidentally spilling your cup over. The contents of the cup, spills over, unto the paper, saturating it with the red juice !
You see what is in that cup represents the blood of Jesus. The blood that was spilled for our sins! That paper represents, every person who has received what Christ has done on the cross. The bible tells us that God took our sins upon himself, at the cross! 
2 Corinthians 5:21 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Did you see what that verse said!! It's said..." That we might become Righte…

Growing in Christ: Grace towards other

Lord, help me to forgive the elderly man that gave me a dirty look, was my prayer.
As I walk through Wal-Mart the other day, a couple of my kids came out of the aisle, and crossed and elderly man's pathway. Agitated that the kids crossed in front of his cart, he stop, looked at me and gave me a very unfriendly look! 
I looked at him, and kept walking. Just moments before , I was speaking to my husband about ignoring people's foolishness. Speaking to him, about not letting things people do and say get him at a constant state of anger!
Now flash forward , moments later, I must practice what I just preached!
I was very angry! So angry, that I wanted to literally punch this man in his face! As I went about finishing my shopping, I said a prayer.
Lord, help me to forgive this man. Lord, help me not to blow up, if I see him again.
Not a minute later, I saw him again. I looked at him, but he did not make any eye contact with me. I kept walking, and kept my mouth Shut!
Proverbs 16:32 He who i…

Growing in Christ: God's protection

Jeremiah 20:11(NKJV)
11 But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One. Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail. They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper. Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten.
Today, like any other day. I start my day out in Christ! I have sent forth my guardian angels, to go forth and prepare my day! Keeping me safe from all harm and danger, according to...  Psalm 91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
I have purposely put on my full armor of God! I am ready for the day!
There will absolutely be no weapons, that has been formed against me, that will prosper! For The Lord has declare, when the enemy shall come at me like a roaring flood. God will be there to protect me, according to this verse...
Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear The name of the Lord from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standa…
