Surrender.....God's Perfect Will

It's been awhile and I'm coming around. I will posting a pregnancy Vlog soon...editing it. Just wanted to say Hi and I've missed you all. I love all your sweet comments and encouragement. Well today I am week 15= 3 months. I go in for an ultrasound to check my amniotic fluid. I will update you in the Vlog. My doctor was a little concerned just wants to check make sure everything is going well.  Fear was starting to set its nasty grip on me, but I reminded myself I serve an Amazing God and all is in His hands. He will give me what I can handle...He's got it no matter the outcome. He is in control...not me. Trust. Trust. Trust. can be hard...the unknown. Let go and let God

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)

My last appt., last week, I wasn't doing so well, had a set back and lost more weight. Ive lost 20lbs in 1 1/2 months. This week has been a better week. I think of how I've tried to lose 15 lbs for the longest time and right before I got pregnant I was on my way. Check out CrafTEA Mom blog for that. But I never would have thought I would lose it like this and so quickly. I was getting down and scared about it because now I'm trying to gain weight to be healthy. Weird how things change. But I feel now I'm at a vantage point. I have an opportunity to continue to be a good steward of this body God has entrusted me with. 

There was one night I thought I would not make it through the night. I was so weak and felt like my body was shutting down.  I hadn't eaten the whole week, just couldnt. The disease was getting the best of me. I remember praying to God and just crying to Him and was so fearful but in the end of my cry my prayer I fully and completly surrendered my life up to him. It was all I had left and all i could do at that point...I was at my end, so I thought. For me I learned what it truly meant to surrender. I've surrendered many things in my life and have taken them back and surrendered them, all in my mind. But this was tangible, it was so real. I know when we surrender things we cant really see that or I don't  know how to explain that part. But this I could feel it, it was right there it was a teue surrender. it was a life changing moment for me. I know this was part of Gods plan for me. And sometimes we go through things for our own good and His purpose. It may not be lovely at the time but the outcome always is. And God has allowed for this to happen, have to think positive about it and something he showed me.

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 
(Philippians 4:11-13 NKJV)

I don't have it all together and I never will. I am a work in progress,  I will never be finished. I will fail you and you will fail me, I will be a let down and they the same, I will hurt them and they will hurt me. We all fall short of Gods glory, we all have our messes and shortcomings in this life. We will never be perfect until we reach heaven. We need to give each other breaks, show Gods grace and mercy. Bring the good out of others and put in the good into to others...Jesus.  It's what it's all about...if we hold on to the past we will be miserable. Don't waste your life away on something that happened. What did Jesus do, he forgave even his worst of enemies, the people who killed Him. How much more we need to do that. We all hurt and all need Gods grace and mercy, it's what he's done for me and you. It's the least we can do for shine the light.

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!!!
