Watch “I Want To Praise YOU Lord MARANATHA SINGERS” on YouTube

I absolutely love this song. I forgot about it until God reminded me today of it. If we had a heart as this song represents, what glorious light we would be to the world.❤❤❤

Never Give Up

All things are possible with God. When you feel like giving up, give up the right things. Give up pride, control, refusing to forgive, give up anger, sorrow. Give up all these thing and humbly pray. Then anything in the world is possible because you have the audience of the God who made the world.❤

Celebrations of Birth Anniversaries

Yay! Birthdays!! In these first two weeks of October, we are celebrating three birthdays in our home. Today is my husband’s, tomorrow is my daughter’s and 12 days later is my son’s. Many parties, much baking, days off school, special meals, all on top of normal life and busyness. So wow! Busy couple of weeks.

Despite this, I am still fasting on Wednesdays because I am needing that closeness to the Lord. So fast with me or just pray with me at meal times if you would also like to be closer to the Lord and unify our prayers for greater intensity and resolve before the Lord God. Celebrations without thanks and praise to God are just shallower and less meaningful. So pray on and we will pray on while living this crazy life together. 😄❤

Today is Your Only Concern

Do not worry about tomorrow. Ever. Tomorrow never arrives. It is always today. Live as if today is all you have to think about. Get through today. Know that a forever is coming soon so when you are living today, live as if it is all you ever have to be concerned with and knowing that we are eternally responsible for the choices we make and things we do today. Today is your responsibility. No worries, just do today. Do it well and based on eternity with God. And then anything is manageable. Today in light of pleasing God is your only concern.❤

The Joy of the Lord is Submission

The Joy of the Lord is presented to those who humble themselves before God. This joy is an underlying contentment no matter what happens in life. It is in direct contrast, opposition even, with people who reject God’s love and relationship and the demons they have decided to submit to. Everyone is submitting to someone, there is always an authority. Always. Some people would rather submit to who they think is themselves to do what they want, but actually it is the devil, demons who want them dead or at the least disconnected from God. Please take heart and keep eternity in mind. Satan is a cruel master who promises what he cannot provide and thrives in lies whereas God is a loving Father who loves you in truth and grace. Submit to God and be full of the joy of the Lord.❤

Truth

Overcome lies with truth.

Lies come from the enemy, even if a loved one says them. Maybe they believe lies. That doesn’t make the lie true.

God only speaks truth. Check the lie with the truth of the Bible.

Pray continuously and the Holy Spirit will help discerning lies from truth when you ask.

God hates all lies. Do not accept what the Spirit tells you is not right.

Keep reading the Bible’s truth to have truth in your mind and heart. Lies will be easier to detect and reject.

Do not ever lie yourself. When you do not lie, it frees your conscience and you sleep better at night.

Truth yields purity. Embrace truth. Decide your life will embrace truth and reflect it.

Always be truthful and people will notice and ask your advice when bad things happen. Then speak truth in love.

Truth and love go together, for God is truth and love. There is only His truth and love. Truth and love are not relative, they are absolute. They are what God says they are for He is their source. This is important because truth or love that changes with circumstances is a lie.❤

Be What Others are Not

If no one is being the light,

That is your job

Be the light.

If no one n is speaking the truth,

That is your job.

Speak the truth.

If no one is worshipping God,

That is your job.

Worship God.

If no one is forgiving and letting go,

That is your job.

Forgive and let go.

If no one is serving others in need,

That is your job.

Serve others in need.

Others may be content with selfishness.

That’s not your job.

Just be selfless.

Others’ sins are not your concern,

Just don’t sin.

Be God’s child.❤
