Woman in the Word Wednesdays {GMG}

What am I learning about in my walk with the Lord? Hmmm...where do I begin {Do you have a year???LOL}. In brief, I am learning to totally commit, surrender, and trust in God in "All things". God has been keeping me in Isaiah, started out with 53. And when He first told me to go there, I was a little bit token back {it's in the old testament, you know that I love the new testament Lord}. I have to say I was a bit rebellious when I went. So I read Isaiah 53 the first day, and really didn't get anything out of it, my heart wasn't in it. But I asked Him again the next morning and again He said read Isaiah 53, so I prayed "God please show me what you have open my eyes that I might see, soften my heart for what you have for me". And with that pray the Lord opened my heart some new and exciting things. Some things didn't seem exciting, but necessary. A few of the verses {and there were many} really stuck out to me and hear I will share them.  

Isaiah 53:3-6 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

At this point in time in my life I was going through the dessert {not literally, but I do live in the dessert}. I was in a dry spot in my walk and didn't know why. What struck me was He was a man of sorrows and grief. He can relate to us when we are going through sorrows and grieft. He has been there and done that. He even bore them and carried our sorrows......who would do that for us? Then in verse 5....awwwww....He was wounded for our trangressions, bruised for our iniquites. But by His stripes we are healed. Whatever sorrows I had that day, poof were gone. How could I dwell on them, I have a Savior who has saved me from all that. He loves me.....

I share with this closing verse in Isaiah 53:7
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.

How many times, when going through my trials have I opened my mouth? One to many.....and here it says He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. And then it goes on to say how He was led as a lamb to the slaughter....and a sheep before its shearers is silent. Is silent??? I know if I was a sheep I'd be kicking and screaming {of course my flesh would do that}. And again it says, so He opened not His mouth. At that moment I asked God for forgiveness for all the times I bickered and complained to Him for my trials. And I started to Praise Him for them and was encouraged to be still and to be quiet through these times. For God knows what He is doing in my life. His ways are Higher than our ways.

Isaiah 55:9 NKJ

"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

So with said....God is on the throne I have nothing to worry about. Be encouraged...God knows exactly what you are going through, trust in Him. Eyes on God!

Walking with 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 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!!!
