Good Morning Girls - Week 1: Reflection

Loving Like Jesus 3D icon

It has been an amazing week...God has showed me allot in the GMG bible study this week. I was refreshed, enlighten and just so blessed by what my sisters shared with me as well. I had some things I was dealing with at the beginning of this week but by Friday God had totally did a work. when we are drawing closer to Him He is working in us.

The time we spend with Him should far exceed anything else we do. It should and needs to be our first priority. Now granted, I know us mommies have pressing issues like a hungry infant or toddlers. For me I have to carve out that time in the morning, even if it's sacrificing extra time before they all wake up. It never fails, when I do that my day is blessed. And not to say it doesn't have it's trials, but I am less likely to act out in my flesh once I fill myself with Him.

This week I learned more about forgiveness, what faith looks like, how faith is cleansing, Jesus' coming. Forgiveness I can honestly say is one I struggle with at times. Sometimes is easier, and sometimes it's really not. I was reminded that forgiveness is best for me and those I love. Trials and offenses and anything else that causes you to have forgiveness towards another is part of our growth. It draws us closer to Him, it reminds us of what Jesus has done for us. It's the least we could do in return. Forgiveness is humbling, it brings us to our knees. Forgiving grows us, it strengthens us, it's all part of the pruning process.


I also wanted to share this video with was funny I heard it this week and it was perfect.

This week I was reminded of my faith, and just having faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains. I had some mountains this week, and that small faith that I had removed them. God is good and He is faithful! Also I was reminded that we are to humble ourselves when serving God, and not accept an award, thank you or a pat on the back. I love what Matthew Henry's commentary said

That, whatever we do in the service of Christ, we must be very humble, and not imagine that we can merit any favor at his hand, or claim it as a debt; even the apostles themselves, who did so much more for Christ than others, must not think that they had thereby made him their debtor. 1. We are all God's servants (his apostles and ministers are in a special manner so), and, as servants, are bound to do all we can for his honor. Our whole strength and our whole time are to be employed for him; for we are not our own, nor at our own disposal, but at our Master's. 2. As God's servants, it becomes us to fill up our time with duty, and we have a variety of work appointed us to do; we ought to make the end of one service the beginning of another. The servant that has been ploughing, or feeding cattle, in the field, when he comes home at night has work to do still; he must wait at table.

Very humbling indeed. I was also reminded of remembering to always give thanks for the work or healing He has done in my life. I don't want to be like one of the 10 lepers who did not return to thank Him for what He has done. 

I was also reminded of His coming, sometimes we can forget JESUS IS COMING and soon! I believe we are living in the Birth Pang stage of His return. There are so many warnings, are we listening to them? Or are the things of this world getting in the way. This was a great reminder for me, the verse that stood out to me was in Luke 17:37..
" Where will this happen, Lord?" the disciples asked. Jesus replied, " Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near." 

It is near, all you have to do is turn on the news and see that those vultures are already gathering! 

May you have a blessed weekend!!

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!!!
