Woman in the Word Wednesday {it's really Thursday for me}

Seek Him!

Today is Woman in the Word Wednesday,'s Thursday but it's ok. :) God is sooo good isn't He?! We have absolutely nothing to worry about...nothing. He's got us in His hands, right where He wants us. Our circumstances might seem difficult or impossible or painful, but that is where He has you. Trust and know that He is in control and is doing a work in you. We just need to abide in Him, connect ourselves to Him. Sometimes that can be difficult as busy mamas, working mamas, and through trials etc....It is the upmost importance to spend that time with Him on a daily, hourly, minute, or second basis. There have been soo many times where I was in a "rush" and didn't spend that quality time with Him. My day was not in the spirit and was not lead by the Spirit. It was lead by me, I missed out on blessings that day. But God still loves me anyway through that. He shows me when I haven't given Him that time to spend with Him. He scraficed His Son Jesus Christ for us so that we can live in eternity with Him. Why can't we just scrafice our time {first fruits} of our day to Him? It is the least we can do for Him, give Him our time, and that's all He asks for is our time.

He has been pruning out things that didn't belong or taking my time from Him. At first it was hard, but I had to let go and Let God, surrender those things to Him! And He has not let me down, my flesh on the other hand has, many of times, people have let me down. Praise God that He will never let us down. His ways are Higher than our ways. But to be right where He wants me is the best place to be. Sometimes things or people might influence us or keep us away from worshipping and fellowshipping with Him. That's why it is soo important to stay connected to the vine, abide in Him. During my I John Bible Study {from Good Morning Girls} a few verses have really jumped out to me this week and I 've been really chewing on them this week.  

I John 2:24-29
24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He has promised us--eternal life. 26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. 27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. 28 And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. 29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

He has promised us eternal life, but we have to abide in Him. When we abide He annoints us and we stay connected. His opinions matter, not anyone elses. His counsel matters, not anyone elses. Don't get me wrong counsel is a blessing {when lead by Him} when received by truth and in love. Test what you receive in counsel by the scriptures. Also when abiding in Him you will know when someone is trying to deceive you or press their own convictions, influences or opinions on you.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Matthew 6:33 NKJV

By seeking Him first He will give you the counsel you do need, weither it be a person, or scripture or whatever He uses to reach you.  But you first must seek Him FIRST, don't go going around getting everyone's opinions or counsel first, go to God first. You will be giving Him your first fruits in that. He will bless you for that. Trying to get others opinions, acceptance, or counsel can get get a little frustrating, confusing, or they might fail you. He will lead you and guide you in the right direction or lead you to that person that has something from HIM specifically for you. This takes patience but God answers in His timing and in His ways not ours.

Seeking Him,

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!!!
