Happy New Year!!!

Tonight has just been a blessing!! I prayed that the Lord would direct our night tonight and He totally orchestrated every moment of it. Spending it with Family and friends we love. We went to church which was a blessing. Our pastor talked about the prophesy update, it was very interesting, you can check it out here at CCGV, it's on the right hand side under prophesy update 2008. Then we headed out to eat and went to watch the fireworks at Lake Las Vegas. The crowd wasn't too bad. It actually wasn't as crowded as the strip and what I had expected. We had a really good view and a really good time. Our girls were a little freaked out by the loud sound. The Lord totally blessed every minute of it, He showed me in soo many ways that night.

I'm learning to trust more on and in Him, than my own understanding. My own understanding just gets me into trouble. As I reflected back on this year, on what He's done, shown and blessed me with! He has answered many desires of my heart, that I've been praying for the last couple of years. He's allowed me to stay home with my family (I've been praying for 5 or more years for that, and he answered my prayer). He's brought so many awesome friends in my life. He's revealing Himself to me more and more each day!! He's also brought me and my love, my Husband closer and closer to Him and to eachother, which has been a desire of my heart for a while. I see now why He does it in His timing. Sometimes He will answer our prays to show us that what we wanted really isn't what He wants for us. But it's a learning experience and a process. It's kind of like when you tell your children no you can't do that because of this or that reason, but then you say ok you can have it but I'm showing you why I don't want you to. It teaches them that sometimes what they really want isn't really what they really want. And the Lord has shown me that this year. He is totally stretching me in directions that I would've never have thought. I am taking this year 2008 and learning from all my mistakes and thanking God for them. Because, I wouldn't learn at all, or grow. There's always a reason for trials, it's to strengthen you, grow you and mold you into His image. So always thank the Lord for your trials, He's training you up, teaching you and molding you because He loves you!!! Well unitl next time, May the Lord Bless you and Keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace. Amen!!
I found this really cool road to resolution and wanted to share it with you.
It is good to make Godly resolutions, and these steps will help you to keep on the right road with God through the year.
Reaffirm your relationship with God.
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8 (NIV)
Look back on this past year and ask God to show you the areas of sin and weakness that might have hindered your spiritual growth.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24 (NIV)
Confess your sin and ask God to forgive you.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just nd will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9 (NIV)
Ask God to refresh you and to give you a new vision for the year ahead.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)....this is one of my favorite verses, it's one I hold on to dearly.
Ask God to help you see your life from His perspective, and renew your commitment to His vision and purpose for your life.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but he transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 (NIV)
Lord I lift up every person that reads this that their heart would be ministered to that Lord if they are not right with you that they would get right with you and Father I just lift them up to and pray for a hedge of protection over them this year as they look back and may you just reveal yourself to them. It's in your Holy and precious name I pray AMEN!!!

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
