Peace on Earth


I have to say that I am sad to see Thanksgiving gone. But it was such a blessing, I was sick-which was ok,  I was with family and couldn't have asked for anything better. Most important of all I was with my savior, my King, Jesus Christ. I do have to admit it wasn't the perfect Thanksgiving {and it's not all about that} but it was the best.  God is showing me some new things this season. I had to be still and let go of the "to do" list. I'm lister type of person, have lists for everything. I'm learning to be content with today and what it brings. For today is a gift, ........let us rejoice and be glad in it {Psalm 118:24}. We are not promised tomorrow, so make the most of today. {easier said than done}

As tomorrow will begin, the first day of December, I am reminded of the true meaning of CHRISTmas. The one and only reason He came into this world...."for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only begotten son that who so ever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16. He came so that we will have eternal life with Him, for those who belive in Him. He came in such a lowly way, there was no extravagent entry. He wasn't even born in a hospital, not even a nurse. But there He lay in a manger, a troth of where the animals ate, so innocent, so humble. How incredible that is, those things didn't matter to God. It's funny to think, I got to chose what hospital my babies would be born in and even got to pick the day she was born. But not Jesus.......he came so that we might live!! That was His main purpose..........It's amazing! His love for us is truely amazing. Everyday He is there, everyday with open arms ready to begin again with us. Would you bask in His love for you today. He LOVES you sooo much that He gave His life for you.

Amoungst my remindings I came across this great December Challenge that Woman Living Well is doing. It was another great reminder to not get caught in all the hustle and bustle. But to really, really seek His face. Be at His feet, rest in His never ending loving arms. In my quiet time I love to picture myself running up to God, like a giddy little girl, and Him having His big arms wide open to catch me and rock me in His loving arms. It's the greatest feeling and picture. And it's real....it's so real I could feel it, I could feel His arms hugging me. Can you? Just imagine it and let it come to life. Some people have asked me recently how I spend my quiet time and tell them just that. Just being, being with Him. I remember when I was a little girl, all day long {during the summer time} I would wait, and wait for my daddy to come home. I'm sure I drove my mom nuts I think I asked 20 times in a day "When is Daddy coming home". I would yearn to see my Daddy, just to be in His arms {Mom I love you dearly}. Then when He finally would come home I would run up to Him and embrace His arms. And that's just how I spend my time with God, only He's always there all the time, I don't have to wait to be with Him.

Ok, on to the Challenge...I am linking up to WLW. Go check it out and listen to this short video. I just love this precious lady. I love the exhortation she gives. She is a great example for me.

Be blessed and remember eyes on God. Don't forget to talk to Him throughout the day. Run in His arms!

Running to the King,

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 http://www.calvarychapel.com/?show=Churches 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!!!
