Fall Blessings.....

Pinned Image

September has hit our door steps - it brings the Fall season - the beginning of my favorite time of year, all the way through Spring!!! There is something about the crisp air, the turning and falling leaves, a new season {fresh start} that brings joy to my soul, and basking in God's glorious creation that He blesses us with each year during this time.

As a new season approaches it's an opportunity for me to reflect upon the things that the Lord has showed and done for me this past summer. How am I going to apply that to this new season? What are things that I need to get rid of that are hindering my walk with Him, or add to it? I enjoyed my summer this year. I learned alot of new things, I'm in a new season in my walk and life. And I can't wait to see what He has in store for me in this new season.

For this fall season I am starting to prepare my heart and home for what the Lord has in store.  I'm open to what He has to show me. And the Holidays to come and all the fun blessings that comes with these times.

My favorite time of the day is in the early morning {before I do anything else} soaking in all of God's truths {His word}, basking in all of His glory, and sipping on a nice cup of a warm yummy drink.

This season my focus will be on these four things:

F- Fellowship With Christ (and Others).
A- Abiding in Christ.
L- Leaning on Christ.
L- Living for Christ.

I loved this acronym, it was perfect for what my focus is on this season. It also reminds me that I need to fall on my knees to my Heavenly Father more. I need to trust Him more, glean from Him more, I just need Him more and more in my life. I can't get enough of Him!! Would Your Holiness surround me Lord! I want to fall more in love with Him, like no other.

This is also a great time to reflect upon the things that God is wanting me to 'let go' of. I learned this summer to let go of alot of things. I no longer have control....He does. As I saught the Lord He showed me all the things that were "fall-ing" from me that He didn't want there anymore. It is refreshing to know that He will replace those things He removed in me with new things, more characteristics/traits of Him. Sometimes we allow ourselves to get distracted by too many things or let other things take presidence over Him. We need to be very careful what we let enter in our hearts and minds. Filter everything through the Lord.
" And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
Jeremiah 29:13 NKJV

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties..."
Psalm 139:23 NKJV

" But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord, that I may declare all Your works." Psalm 73:28 NKJV

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded. James 4:8 NKJV

I stumbled upon this {below} and it is so true for me in this season of 'Life' I am in right now......

In the fall the chlorophyll breaks down because of certain elements, which cause the other pigments to break out, and we see what becomes our beautiful fall leaves. There are three basic elements that affect that chlorophyll breaking down. Those are temperature, light, and water. During the fall the temperature drops having an effect. The days are shorter so there is less sunlight, and there is less water because of the rain level.

Pondering all this set me to thinking how that is so how we are as Christians. When we are sailing along without any problems we stay green and in the comfortable zone, but if it weren't for the little less sunlight of a few bumps in the road in the way of trials, a few cold days of heartaches, and a little less water when we feel we can't handle the burdens, then all of a sudden we become beautiful as a Christian. All that food or Word of God we've stored in our cells will make us stronger. God uses all those bumps, heartaches, and burdens to bring out our color and brilliance so that we can be beautiful for Him. He is the Master Creator. He knows what He is doing.

"But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold."
Job 23:10

I encourage you to really take time out to bask in His word and in His glory. Fall more in love with Him than ever before.

Fall Blessings to you!!

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!!!
