2010...to remember!

I love this song.."O happy Day", sung by Kim Walker. Rock on Girl! This song reminds me of when I first got saved...Easter 2000. It was a happy, glorious day....the angels were definetly singing! wooohoooo!!!

So this year has been a very trying, growing, stretching, two steps forward one step back, drawing closer to God kind of year!! I sound like a growing flower, guess you can say that I am. I'm Gods flower....his precious little flower. God has done some amazing things in my life this year. For a couple of years I felt I was in a dry place, and I did not like it. I felt so far away from God. I asked, pleaded and begged, and cried to God....."Lord change me!!" and that He is doing. I was having a hard time seeing my growth but going back and reflecting on 2010....I can see that He's brought me along way. A place that is closer to Him. Might be an inch...but it's closer to Him :).

Woman Reading Book On Stairs photoThis year my word for 2011 is:  "Closer"....I want to be closer to Him this year than ever. I want to draw closer to Him, I want to be closer to Him. I just want to bask in presence....just being still with Him. There are alot of things I could go back and do over, but it's not possible. But I can learn from those things and walk on with the Lord.

My Verse for 2011 is: James 4:8 {NLT}
Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, you hypocrites.

May God richly bless you, and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace.

God Bless you,
Walking with Jesus

  3. Hi, I found you from Ann’s.

    One step forward and two steps back – that sounds familiar. But you ended up closer. That’s a blessing right?

    To be closer to Our Lord – perfect word.

    I have prayed today for your year of “closer” to be a holy one.

    And your blessing at the end - it's how I end all my stuff - I shorten it - but love the longer, truer version. May God richly bless you, and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace.

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!!!
