Fall Challenge #3


 I loved this picture, when I saw it on Woman Living Well and I loved her fall challenge for this week. Here is just a snipit of it.... Go to her website, Woman Living Well to view the rest of her awesome post.

Here's week #3's Challenge: List a few of the spots in your home that make you visually stressed because of all the clutter. Now go buy something for that spot - like a basket to put it all in! Work on cleaning up clutter. Throw things away. While you're at it - clean up some clutter in your spiritual life. What gets in the way of your peace spiritually?

I can tell you that I have a crafting closet that needs tending to majorly. I may be brave enough to show it to on this post. I am so glad that it has a door that I can shut and not look at it. Out of sight out of mind. But I know that when I open it up, it is still there...why because I haven't taken care of it, I haven't cleaned it up. And that's how sin is in our lifes.We think we can forget about it, but when that door is opened, in our heart, it's still there that ugly ol' sin. That's why we need to take care of it right away.

I have a few rooms in my heart that need to cleaned up. After listening to our Pastors message yesterday and then reading this today, I think God is speaking to me loud and clear. As much as I love to be in my craft room, I can't because it's dirty. And as much as I love to hear from God I can't when I've got sins I need to repent of. So if your wandering why you haven't heard from God today, ask Him if there is anything in your heart that is blocking His voice and then repent of it. Break those walls down!

Oh Lord, please forgive us of our downfalls, our offenses,  Lord we humbly come before you and ask for your forgiveness for our sins, would you wash clean, as white as snow. Father, thank you for your forgiveness, thank you for loving us with a love that is indescribable. Thank you Jesus for healing us! In Jesus name Amen.

Ok, are you ready, don't get scared like I do everytime I open my closet door. Yikes!!!

Yikes!! Who can think in this room?? Not me... :) My closet threw up a few times, it needs some TLC. Hopefully by the end of this week I can declutter and post a pic {Lordwilling}. Someone keep me accountable, to do this task.

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!!!
