Crossing the Desert

How long have you been hurting? How long have you been sick? How long have you been in debt? How long have you been separated? How long have you been suffering? How long have you been struggling with your problem? How long have you been waiting for the Lord? How long have you been crazy bad person?  How long have you been trying? Etc...THIS IS YOUR DAY! HOPE IS COMING!..I don’t know if you know anything about Israelites during their time in the desert? God sustained them not for a few days but for forty years.   It is written that “For forty years you sustained them in the desert, they lacked nothing, their clothes did not wear out nor did their feet become swollen” (Nehemiah 9:21) I declare today my friend that the Lord is watching over you, He monitors any step you make. Do not give up! He is there with you; keep on moving through the desert of challenges and sickness. You will pass through the desert; you will lack nothing at all just as Israelites didn’t lack anything. He is the same God for you today.  No matter what you have done in the past…” He is a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate,  slow to anger and abounding in love”(Nehemiah 9:17)
Prayer of the day “ God! Thank you for your promise that you made for our forefathers. Thank You for today that you are with me as I cross the desert of challenges in my life. Thank you for your grace and your great compassion for my life….a sinner like me. Blessed be your glorious name, and may it be exalted above all blessing and praise” Amen

Have a blessed day and keep those who were affected by the storm in your prayers.

I love you!

“ I love you” Those are the three words that I hear everyday or I say it everyday. Do you also say “ I love you” to someone? Mmm…what does “ I love you” means to you? Do you really mean “ I love you” or it is just a routine thing that you do every day?  Is it a check list for your daily activity after finish talking on the phone or when you head out for work or class?  I wonder if we are really saying the true “I love you”. You have probably heard some pastors say “say as you mean it” How do you say to a stranger “ I love you?” How do you say to your enemy “I love you?” How do you say to your competitor” I love you?”  How do you say to yourself “I love you” after you mess up with your life?  How do you say “ I love you” to a person who  have hurt your several times? How do you say “ I love you” to a boyfriend or a girlfriend who have let you down  twice?  How do you say “ I love you” to a wife/husband who seems like he or she never get anything right according to your feelings?  My friend! “ I love you” is the most powerful tool that covers  everything. I would like you to be patient when it comes to saying “ I love you”  do not be arrogant about it. “I love you” has no end…you should said it all time and belief in it. Do not stop saying “ I love you” due to some circumstances. Say “ I love you” when you are happy or sad. Say “I love you”  even when things do look like they are going your way. Say “ I love you” even when if feel like not wanting to say “ I love you.”  Saying “ I love you” means saying the truth, do not cover the lies with “ I love you”. Belief in the person when you say “ I love you” ….I am going to stop there my friend…I am not preaching, I just saying and trying to encourage you…check what the Bible say:
 It is written “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end... And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love. (NRSV, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, 13)

Prayer of the day: “God, help me to say to someone “ I love you” just as you said  to me “ I love you” when I was lost in sin. You showed me your unconditional love, I would like to love others just as you love me. I want to say “ I love you” from the bottom of my heart and to feel right when I say so. Please help me to love others today” Amen

Have a blessed day and a wonderful day and remember that “ I love you” my friend from the bottom of my heart. I am so glad that you are my friend, I don’t know how I would do without having you as my friend. Be blessed and stick with me my friend. Tell someone “ I love you” today.
Lots of love was shown to the children by approx. 2,000 books being donated to them! WOW!

How many times have you made a promises and don’t fulfill it? How many times have you promise others that you will do this or that and end up not doing it at all ? How many times have you promised God that you will make changes in your life and end up doing nothing but same old stuff? How times have you promise that you will help someone and don’t do it at all? How many times have someone walk in
to you asking for money and you said “I will see what I can do” and end up doing nothing about? It is hard my friend! We take things for granted, we make lots of promises to ourselves or others and don’t bother to commit the promises that we make. My question is: “why make promises and don’t do it? Why make an oath and end doing something different? No one forces you to make a promise! I just wanted to remind you that it is written “ Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.”( Mat 5:37) Nehemiah also stated that in this way may God shake out of his house possessions every man who does not keep his promises (Nehemiah 5;13)

Do not let the pressure or circumstances fool you! Let your NO be a “NO” and Your Yes be “Yes” nothing in between…Do it or don’t do it, promise something or don’t promise at all, help or don’t help, change or don’t change , etc. Be an honest and straight forward person, set a good boundaries to yourself and others. Be a man or a woman of integrity and a man or a woman of his/her words!

Prayer for the day: God! Help me to make up my mind when it come to making promises to myself or others. I want to honor you in all that I do. God guard my lips so that nothing evil come out of my mouth! Help me make promises that I will be able to fulfill through your help God” Amen . Have a blessed day and don’t forget to let your “ NO” be your real “NO” and your “YES” be your honest “YES”

Confidence is a good thing! It makes difference in any situation, good or bad. Do you have confidence in your self? Do you have confidence in what you are doing right now? Do you have confidence that you will achieve what you are aiming for? Are you confident that you will succeed no matter all the challenges that come along the way? Are you confident that one day you make it to heaven? 
I just wanted to remind you, my friend, that it is written that “ being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion…”(Philippians 1:6) Hey! Keep on going knowing that God who had began a good work in your life will carry it on to completion. Do not lose hope, look right or left. Focus on the Lord and avoid all other destructive voices that surrounds you everyday. Be confident in yourself because God is in control.

Prayer of the day: “Almighty God! I am so glad that you have already started a good work in my life. Help me to realize that you are working inside me. Help me to be confident of my self and all that I do. I feel lost by not being confident in myself sometimes…God! I want to be confident in myself, could you please help me realize that you are working something good in my life for now and forever” Amen

Have a blessed day and don’t forget to be confident in yourself 
as God expects you to be confident in yourself everyday.

lights and mirrors

A lot was going on yesterday and God worked in MIGHTY ways!

We were having a realtor show our house in the evening so we were trying to clean, take care of our little ones who have colds, put up mirrors, etc. Needless to say I was stressed and overwhelmed at times about all that needed to be done and just had to keep giving it to God. Well, as God always does when we pray... He showed up in big ways!

We needed the light in the upstairs room to be repaired so that they could look at the room when the house was shown by the realtor. We asked our neighbor to come and check it out but he was busy. We moved on with other things. David headed out to get another mirror (our realtor said that mirrors really trick the eye and help the rooms look bigger). So David was set on finding a mirror for absolutely every mirror in the house. I told him it as a bit overkill but he said in such a serious manner "You really don't know what a difference this is making!" and so I was like "What you have sold 20 houses or something?!" haha. Life with my man is a blast!

Anyway, once David headed out to get one last mirror (a humongous one that I saw at the thrift store the day before) our neighbor popped on by and said he did have time to look at the light right then. What a God send! So while he fixed our light David came back with the humongous mirror and a nice man that he met at the thrift store that was also buying something and asked if David wanted some help putting it up! Wow again how God works! We would have had a time putting up a heavy mirror with just us two and the little ones getting under foot.

In all the light was fixed upstairs and the humongous mirror was set up in the living room with great screws and strong men! God is AWESOME! I love how He is like just you wait little lady, this will be taken care of. Don't stress because I have it under control. Just wait for My timing so I can get the glory! Woohoo!

The Will of God

The will of God will never take you,
Where the grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the arms of God cannot support you
Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
Where the power of God cannot endow you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the army of God cannot protect you,
Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the authority of God cannot overrule for you.

The will of God will never take you,
Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
Where the Word of God cannot feed you,
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

Everything happens for a purpose.
We may not see the wisdom of it all now,
but trust and believe in the Lord that everything is for the best.
