Romans 12:4 Many members, one body.

Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by! I do hope all is well and that you are able to leave your homes and get a break from being sheltered from the storm of the covid-19.

It is good to know that you are are safe and sound. In the comforts of yur own home. Feeling well or getting over that covid-19. Some good comfort food if you are able to get it makes you feel better.

As I was talking to some people about how well our Grandmothers were excellent cooks…we all remember chicken and rice. I remember my Grandmother making smothered chicken and rice. I remember eating that when we had fried chicken and then the left overs for the next day was the smothered chicken with onions that was very good.

We all have a special meal that our beloved Grandmothers made. But each one of my friends would say that they had chicken and rice. We learned that our homes made it different with the same basic ingredients. Still in its way the same.

Romans 12:4

“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:”

When as a child I would see that my friends Nancy would have something similar to this meal below.

1 Corinthians 12:6

“And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”

King James Version (KJV)

In my house we would have something similar to this which was smothered fried chicken.

In my husbands family , they would have a meal similar to this…

In my great Grandmothers home it could have been something like this one below. I did not know my Great-grandmother so the recipe went with her. 😦

Or even one like this below may have been what my Great-Grandmother may have had as a child growing up as an Native American. She may have cooked on a cast iron pan like this one.

And with the Native African ancestry, the meal could have looked like this below.

All of those delicious meals I had to start somewhere. From some point. And the point that I am trying to make is that we all maybe different on the outside, but we are member as one body of Christ .

Different spices. Different cooks. All that can make a good meal to feed any hungry tummy. Just like the word of GOD feeds our hungry souls. And can feed ALL souls!

Our souls need to be fed with the word of GOD as though it was chicken and rice. To be encouraged and to be known how much our GOD loves us so.

Give yourself a hug, knowing that we share the body of CHRIST JESUS. JESUS is in us who are in the body, and know that we “hug” one another right now in this time of this pandemic. You are never alone or unloved when you know GOD and HIS son JESUS is with you at all times. ALL TIMES!!!

Psalms 23:4

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

King James Version (KJV)

Enjoy some healthy comfort food while reading up on the word of GOD. There is no perfect comfort like this anywhere. You will not have the distractions of the world around you. Just peace. And maybe this is what our GOD wants us to do, reconnect with HIM.

Have a blessed day, stay safe, keep washing your hands , stay cautious at all times by being aware that the pandemic is not done.

Peace!!!

The LORDS light!

Psalm 27 King James Version

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Hello everyone, I do thank you for taking the time to come and visit this blog. For it is a blessing to see another day and to be able to be in a place where you will have access to a PC to read this.

GOD is good! HE does answer prays and look out for those of us with faith and trust in HIM. I say this as for a testimony from what I went through yesterday. I was so sick that I had to stay home from work with an issue with my back. Geepers it was awful.

But with prayer I am able to pull through that and the pain is now dull and I am on the mends to my normal self. Sometimes I think I am super woman and can lift or do things without an issue. But when I work too hard I get yelled at by my body to let me know I should not have done that. 😦 I got yelled at pretty good I tell you!

When I was resting and Hubby helping me to get better I looked out at the sun. The LORDS light, it was a warm glow coming into the living room. It was so comforting to know HE is always there. Like a smile from heaven.

The LORDS light was encouraging to me, as though HE was smiling at me to say that I will be alright. I knew through prayer I would. Who else can we depend on in this world for help and comfort?

See, reading the word of GOD is comforting. The whole Psalms of chapter 27 came to me. We, you and I go through things in life that this particular Psalm is mentioning.

The trials and tribulations we will and have gone through at the doings of wicked people. Each one of us can pick a verse and say yes this has happened to me.

Psalm 27 King James Version

27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.

For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.

Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.

11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

King James Version (KJV)

GOD is greater than any problem we have and will take it from us.

When the sun is sending it’s warming rays down on you, if you can take the time to enjoy it. If even for only a minute. Feel that loving comfort coming down from the LORD GOD. Know HE is there not matter if the sun is out or not. Whatever the weather is like too, hot or cold. For you will still have comfort when you stay in prayer.

Stay blessed, keep safe, healthy and sound. Feel free to share this blog to others who my need to be encouraged too. Thank you all who follow me and may GOD always be with you and your loved ones! 🙂

Peace!!!!

Proverbs 31:10. To honor the Mothers !

I want to say to all of the Mothers across the world, be it mothers of human babies or “fur” babies/pets that you all will have a blessed Mothers Day 2020! And for all of the men who had to be the “Mother” when the wife has gone and had to step up to the job as Mother and Dad.

Proverbs 31:10

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far above rubies.

Giving honor to my Mom for all that she has done for me and the whole family. I thank GOD for a good Mother like you who taught me about the LORD, took me to Church. Fed me and kept a clean house and food on the table.

Not only are you still a good Mother, but as I was growing up showed me how to be lady-like as you were in your career as an actress.

Thank you dear FATHER GOD for a good Mommy as what you gave me and for her good Mother as well too. My Grandmother, whom we both still do miss today.

May GOD give you all of the righteous desires of your heart Mom and many more happy days here on earth with us too!

Ephesians 6:2-3 King James Version (KJV)

Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;

That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

I love you Ma, with all of my heart! May GOD always be with you forever! 🙂

Luke 11:14-28. One cant cast out evil with evil!

Hello everyone, I do pray you all are well, safe and sound from the virus and anything else that maybe harmful too. For we all need to stay in prayer and wait on the LORD GOD as to what to do each day HE gives to us.

There are many people out there in this world who still are turning their back away from the LORD. Wanting to do what they feel is best for them or what is pleasing to them. Well, they are missing out. Missing on the love that our beloved GOD is showing all mankind that HE has for us all. Only if we turn to HIM our heavenly FATHER ,and for the salvation from HIS beloved son JESUS!

I have heard of many people that they feel just that, restriction and they don’t want to be forced or told what to do. Well satan is very cunning and knows the weakness of mankind. He will temp all mankind into thinking things or doing things we ought not. He tried that temptation with JESUS when JESUS was in the mountains for 40 days and nights to bos down and worship him until JESUS chased satan away.

Matthew 4:10

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

I many times had wished I was as strong as JESUS. But none of us mankind is, this is why we need JESUS. JESUS is so cool, HE is so wise and strong and handled that situation as an example as how we need to be when we are tempted.

Which brings me to the point…..LUKE 11:18.

Luke 11:18

“If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.”

King James Version (KJV)

We can not cast out satan with potions, spells , incatationsor witch craft or what ever mankind can come up with (through satan’s temptations) to avoid going to GOD and HIS son JESUS in the first place. And I happen to feel that when people go into witch craft….they are worshiping satan on his terms.

This is why when I hear people say they are going into the occult to get rid of a bad spirit that is hanging around their home. But as a pastor says when you do evil things, it will dwell in the house with you.

Prayer, faith in both GOD and HIS son JESUS will protect you at all times. GOD is the supreme being over all. And what GOD says goes.

Luke 11:14-28 King James Version (KJV)

14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.

15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.

16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

King James Version (KJV)

Stay in prayer over all of your loved ones, yourself, your home, your job and all that is yours to keep GOD close to you and for you to be close to HIM. Satan is tricky and will keep on trying to make a mess of things until our JESUS returns to earth to take us home. But with the power GOD has..it will not happen.

Thank you all for stopping by to read the word of GOD and this blog. Feel free to pass it forward so others will get a blessing as well too! Have a blessed day!

Peace!!!

People seem to be getting closer to GOD.

Our nature walk today.

Hello everyone,

I do hope you all are well and not stressed over anything. For we all need t leave our worries with our beloved FATHER GOD.

Hubby and I have taken our nature walk today and to see how things are growing in our neck of the woods!

The walk is so peaceful, as we look at the little creeks and streams. Water always can be relaxing to watch in a calm state of an even peaceful flow. Even the sound of it babbling along its way is relaxing.

And to think our ever loving GOD made this. I did take a video of this brook in a different angle , and it is just as peaceful. 🙂

Many people know God, and some do not. But what I am seeing more now are people talking about prayer. We all need to pray and with a sincere heart as this pandemic is busy across the entire globe!

I am happy to hear more people stop and think! Some stay doubtful because of little or no faith.

James 1:12, trials and tribulations

Hello everyone, thank you all for stopping by to read GOD’s words and my blog! For the word of GOD is very encouraging and loving for us all.

Many times we as Christians will go through tribulations that are coming from those unsaved people who have an evil heart. Suffering from what they do for as long as they think they can get away with what they do. Some may stop after a time, and some will take that evil with them to the grave.

The evil one has them and their souls. And wants all of GOD’s children to fall from grace as he has done before the creation of mankind. So we need to always pray and ask our GOD for strength to make it through theses tests of faith.

The devil is persistent, and because we mankind are in GOD’s image, for the devil tempted Adam and Eve in the garden of eden.

Revelation 12:7 – 12:9

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

We go through these tests of faith and pull through them so we can be stronger, give GOD praise for saving us and pulling us through. This encourages others and they will see our faith and seek after our GOD.

Many times our GOD has done things for me and all of my loved ones. I will tell of the time when there was an icy road we had to cross to get home. Our GOD spared both my husbands life and mine on that cold night a few months ago. Praise GOD now and for all of eternity long!!!!

See our car could have been totaled, we could have been in the hospital or have died. But he spared us from getting hurt in that ditch, and we did not have to pay a large bill for the car to be fixed or ge a new one. A simple tyrid and a new tire was all we needed. Praise and glory be to GOD ALMIGHTY now and for all of eternity long! 🙂
