Christ Joy



How did your day go, was the question that my insurance sale rep asked me, a few day ago. After telling her about my crazy day of not being able to get to my daughter's dentist appointment, and keys being locked in my SUV; she reply you sounds so happy, even with the day you had!

That is the Joy of the Lord! There is Great peace and joy, in knowing the God that you serve! Knowing that no matter what life brings our way, that we will make it through it all, because of Christ! In His word,( the bible) God reminds us of who He is....

Jesus is our way make...(John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.)

Jesus is our Healer...(Psalm 103:3 Who forgives all your iniquities,Who heals all your diseases,)

Jesus is our provider...(Philippians 4:19

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.)

Jesus is our Joy...(Nehemiah 8:10...Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Jesus is our strengthen...)

Jesus is our redeemer...

(Galatians 3:13

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),

Jesus is our peace...(John 14:27

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.)

When I am reminded of Who God is through His word! I can't help it but to smile and take upon me His Joy, which is my strength to keep on moving forward in Christ!

Heavenly Father I come to You in the name of Jesus ! Lord, I thank You that through Your word. You remind me of who You are, that gives me Hope, joy and strength in You! You are the joy that strengthens me daily and keeps me going! For this is the day that You have made! And I WILL rejoice and be glad in it! In Jesus name I pray Amen!


Have a Bless day in Christ, love Sis Rashida

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
