Hello everyone! I do hope you will have a blessed Easter in spite of the covi-19 pandemic right now. It can not stop us from praying, and for some it may make us pray even more!
We are home from going to Church today and I tell you I do miss the fellowship and hearing the word from the Pastor of which ever Church my husband decides we go to on Sundays. We attend the local Churches and those that are not too GOD willing once we are able to travel again to them!
It is not the feeling of being shut in, it is the feeling of being safe and sound from whatever is going on with the virus that has affected the whole entire planet.
Some people are being led closer to GOD because of the issues of the day for right now. Some of the people I know will need to collect unemployment for right now until the situation is done with the virus and the companies can rehire people back to pay their bills.
You can not know too many people who love the LORD. This is one of the reasons as to why we go to more than one church. We love to travel when we are able to. (right now due to the covi-19 pandemic we stay local.) Each pastor has his own way on delivering the message from GOD. Each Pastor has his own personality that will touch whomever needs to be touched by GOD’s words to lead them to HIM.
Stay in prayer and know that GOD is watching over us all and keeping us safe and not locked up! Thank you for coming by to read my blog, feel free to pass it forward and share the blessing of GOD’s word. 🙂
I need to share with you all my thoughts about this cornavirus. And how powerful it is to have moved so quickly about the whole earth.
How it seems to bring business to a halt! How people you used to want to mingle and bar hop! How people would socialize and now there us social distancing!
How many people are staying indoors leaving ny times square look like a ghoist town! How people are afraid to touch each other!
We need to think about all of what’s going on! For we need not be as stubborn as the people who saw the parting of the red sea and not believe in God and His power!
Read the word of GOD!
Pay attention to the word of GOD, and stay in prayer. Yes listening to the new may depress soe people. But we need to watch and pray. To know what is going around us all.
Fear is not an option for those of us who trust in the LORD. GOD is not a lier like all mankind is and can be. Keep your faith and trust in our GOD and he will not leave you stranded ever. HE has done this for me and will do this for you also.
Stay blessed. Pass this blog forward to give others a blessing as well too!
Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are well and do not have that covi19 thing that is going about. If you are inside and shut in from it, I do pray that you are reading the word and trying to get as much joy and love from reading the word to give you the comfort you need.
For the true peace and love you will have is thru our beloved savior JESUS knowing you have given your life to JESUS and accepted HIM as your savior!
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
King James Version (KJV)
Those of us who are believers are being drawn together more so now. And with the same mindset about this pandemic being a warning.
You know the Bible warns, guides us all righteously when we take the time to read it. All in a loving way too, for it is the word of GOD.
More and more people are taking about our beloved God and His wonders and power. Many related this latest pandemic as a warning. It is good Christian people are coming together as well as those who are now seeking God
We mankind are stubborn at times when we want our way and not GOD’s and then get angry with him when we can see that our way is not working.
There are closings of schools until the end of the year and only online courses are given. Churches are shut down, businesses, people losing jobs and so on and so on. When you see these places being shut down, affected maybe shut because of what we are doing is not with the lord GOD in it. I see the bars being shut down as well as some Churches.
This virus has shown me people who mention praying to GOD I never expected to for they have never mentioned our loving FATHER GOD until now.
Some have the look of convection when they hear mention of the wrath of GOD who may have been used to living a life that is not cool with GOD. Giving them cause to rethink things over.
But for those of us who continually seek after the FATHER and the SON….we watch and pray and have np fear of the things happening around us. We have to remember, GOD protects those of us who truly love him at all times.
Babes/newbies in the LORD are learning this now. Those who want to know about GOD and HIS Son will.
But those who mock our warnings have made the choice to live their way and not GOD’s will suffer and see why the life they choose is not a good one. And will pay for it in the end for all eternity long. See, I do pray that all of those defiant ones will repent before it is too late.
“There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”
King James Version (KJV)
Stay healthy and blessed, Please pass this blog forward and thank yu very much for stopping by and reading it.
Good morning all, I do hope you were able to enjoy some of the sunshine that came your way today. Even though it was cold and windy.
I see the changes in Church from the years and one of them is the way how we dress. In the past 10 years at least, I see people coming to Church wearing extra casual clothing.
At oe point I have seen people the same kind of clothing they would to walmart to shop in such as the pajama bottoms.
Looking and dressing right for the world or for our ever loving Father in Heaven when we are in GOD’S house? I see people who dress for the world at their finest. But when it comes to going to Church they will wear sloppy clothing.
When you want to look your best for an occasion outside of Church, you will put in your best outfit. Or you will head to the mall and take all after noon to find the right outfit. Be it for a first date, job interview, or a party.
I have seen many people who are in the Oscar telecast dress overboard to stand out, go over the top to impress everyone that they have the best outfit. A rememberable outfit with all who have seen them.
But yet you wonder, if people know how some people attend Church wearing clothing that looks as though they were out digging ditches. Or just rolled out of bed wearing pajamas bottoms and a t-shirt. I have actually seen a woman wearing just that to Church too, with a sweat shirt hoodie.
1 Corinthians 6:19 – 6:20
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
We all can do better as we come into the house of GOD, by showing HIM respect and not compromising for what the world wants. This is what we do when we are more eager to have people attend the Church because they don’t want to dress up.
1 Timothy 2:9
“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;”
King James Version (KJV)
Even if you make it a point to wear one good outfit to Church, the LORD will understand that you come to pay HIM the respect and not the people around you.
If you can follow a dress code for work or school, you can honor the most high who sits upon the throne in your best best clothing for church. Save the the sloppy for at home when you have your own way in your own home.
Enjoy you Sunday at Church or fellowship with others in your house. Stay blessed and have a peaceful day! Pass it this blog post forward and share the blessing!
Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD has made for us all.
I have seen many people that cling to the idea of spirituality and turn their nose up at religion, saying it is too structured. Yet they acknowledge there is a higher power or there is a GOD. And prefer to be “spiritual”.
There are so many beliefs out there to confuse people and keep them from GOD and from accepting JESUS as their saviour of their souls.
To me from what I can see, if any religion or church does not teach that JESUS is the savoir of our souls who do believe in HIM, they are sending every soul in there to eternal hell.
John 14:6 King James Version
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (KJV)
When you are into the spirituality way of thinking, you are not into the truth behind salvation. You are distracted from the truth. JESUS is the truth. None of us mankind will enter into heaven unless we accept JESUS as our key to unlock the door of heavens gates.
ALL of those who have died on before us, who have not received JESUS as their savoir will not get into heaven according to scripture.
And I do understand that many reading this will have people in their lives that have gone on before them that were good people will not want to hear they are not making it into heaven. But the Bible is clear as how GOD’s plan is.
But it is NOT too late to save your own soul from hell. Allow JESUS in your life. Accept JESUS as your savior now.
1 John 4:1
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
King James Version (KJV)
Choosing a religion that does not teach salvation, is as the lost leading the lost sort of thing.
In those non- Christian religions, they may assume just being a good person, doing good deeds, doing nice things for their family and friends and giving large donations to the needy is being right with GOD. Or just a higher being that they call GOD.
But if you do not love GOD and HIS son JESUS and have a righteous relationship with them both, and have accepted JESUS as savior that is all you will accomplish is just being called a nice person by your peers.
Ephesians 2:8 – 2:9
8. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of GOD.
9. Not of works , lest any man should boast.
There are many people out there who think they can buy their way into heaven. Or do favors for their friends and have it known they are a good person. It is not true. Ephesians 2:8 and 9 will correct us on that thought. Some faiths will teach this to people to do good acts/deeds and favors so they will get into heaven.
A person I know will says that they are spiritual. They listen to a person who comes on the internet. This person they listen to is into spiritual thinking, ways that that way appear to be good to this person I know. But what I see is this internet person is playing with their souls fate that will lead them to hell. They are into astrology, dreams, spiritual energy and similar things that has nothing to do with Christianity at all. This internet person is a false prophet.
Read the word of GOD to get understanding and protection from the nonsense of those who are false prophets. Because these workers of evil will seek after those who have not come to know GOD and his son JESUS.
“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”
King James Version (KJV)
I do pray that you will share this with all of your loved ones, for we not want to have anyone crash and burn in hell. Not even your enemies, for they need to be saved too. And once they see the light and repent then they will be part of the body of Christ you in heaven!
Good morning to all! I pray that you all are doing well this new day. For each day that passes is getting closer to spring! Yay!
I had been thinking about how we all need to be closer to the what is good and right with the ways of GOD and have a peaceful way about us. A closer encounter. If you GOOGLE “Close encounter” you will come up with some links.
I came across an old move movie called “Close Encounters” from 1977. It is about how people all over are drawn to a location, like minded and lost in the thought of aiming to get to this location.
If you flip this to how it can be for those of us that are like minded and aim to be with the LORD…..this is something like this. You are focused and not distracted because you are seeking the destination of heaven.
If we are in the body of Christ JESUS then we are like mined, wanting to aim for the higher place away from the ways of this fallen world. We look up and have set our hearts on being with the LORD.
Acts 17:27-29 King James Version
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
Keeping our focus on the LORD is hard, because the evil one is always trying to take our eyes off our prize of our LORD JESUS . To be with HIM in all eternity long! Yay!!!!
Philippians 3:14 King James Version
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Keep your mind and heart on our prize in heaven. You will be encouraged by reading the word of GOD that is true and loving.
Have a blessed day in the LORD where ever you may be. Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog posts I share with you all . Pass it forward to others who may need to know loving GOD is always there with them.
“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:”
King James Version (KJV)
Good day to you all. I do hope all is well as we are now into a new month in 2020. It is the month for Black history and Valentine”s Day. Both are good thing s to know about for all people.
Speaking of love on Valentines day…this is something that we all should consider doing is to share the love we have from the body of Christ with others. Many have no idea what this is.
As I have read the way that JESUS would talk to women in the Bible HE had compassion for us. Understanding too. But this was for everyone, not just us women. The Children along with the men. So yeah, that is pretty much everyone of all ages. The elders, infants and those in between too.
1 Corinthians 12:12-27 KJV
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many,
There is no division between the peoples of the body of Christ. Not an issue with the body of Christ when you understand what it is about. There should be unity. Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
We are all one, with differents jobs to do as a body would have hands, a head, a heart to make the body work in unity. We are all given different gifts to do to serve. Cool!
Let us do our serving as how GOD wants us to do so, to encourage others to GOD. Let us listen to GOD to find our gifts, and not to compare us to others. Others have their own gifts as how to serve. A foot can not do what the head can do. And if the leg hurts and you can not walk, then the whole body will suffer trying to move about in pain.
Let us find fellowship with our fellow members of Christ so we can edify each other.
Please do pass this forward so others will hear and read the word of GOD and get a blessing from this. We who love GOD and those who need to find GOD. Have a blessed day!
Since as a child, I remember those Sunday dinners that my beloved Grandma made. After Church , I recall the house smelling like good food for the meal was done before we went to church and all we had to do was to heat it up some and eat.
Life was so easy as a child, I tell you. All I had to do was go to Church (I always enjoyed it) go to school, play with friends and cousins, be a good kid and stay out of trouble. And enjoy my Grandmas cooking with my loving family.
I understand that not all people had that kinds of life, and I will say mine was not perfect. There have been some sour kids at school that seemed like something from another planet…but knowing they don’t live with me I was happy about that,
What I loved most was Chicken and Fish. Still do as I think about it. Easy on the tummy more so than beef for me. LOL!
My baked chicken is very easy to do. It is easier than fried. If I can get a whole chicken on sale , I will cut it up like you see below.
Ingredients: Just in case you choose to make it are very simple. Seasoned salt and black pepper to taste. Just sprinkle the seasonings on lightly on your chicken. It can be a whole uncut or cut up like I did. Place your chicken on a buttered baking dish at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Or until it looks like mine where the skin is nice and brown and crispy.
My husband loves potatoes. Loves them mashed even better!
Ingredients: 6 – 3 inch fresh peeled potatoes in a pot just covered with water. Then boiled until tender. Drain water. Add 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup of milk, salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Simple stuff. Just use your mixer to make it smooth and fluffy.
Now we like peas. I just heat up some frozen peas.
As for dessert, I might just make Jello. Depending on the timing and how many other thing I need to get done during the day.
Enjoy your Sunday dinner with your family, friends or only just with the LORD. The LORD is always with us no matter where we are.
Good morning to you all, and giving glory to our beloved FATHER GOD first and foremost, for with out GOD there is nothing.
Never forget that our GOD loves us so. And with the ups and downs in this fallen world, we need to keep strong in our faith and to kick in even harder with our faith in GOD and HIS son JESUS our savior.
The evil one is busy confusing people who have little or no faith with whispering lies into their every thought. And you can see the weak ones do the immoral acts of the day. Doing things that they feel they wont get caught doing, or don’t care because they like what they do. The devil knows the weakness of all mankind. It is the flesh that we are in.
He can lie to us and tell us such as:
We are not handsome enough, or pretty enough. But someones set standard.
We are too tall or too short. Why? GOD made variety so that each one of us will be special.
We are not smart enough or even overqualified for a job or task. Why?If a person is under qualified, teach them. If they are over qualified let them teach others.
If a person looks different from you and your family and relatives so what?Then they just have different mothers and dads. If you feel they are not as good as you, then you are wrong for being narrow minded.
Assuming that when a person is over 21, or even 30 is old if you are younger. And assume that they do not work out, like wearing fashionable clothing. That women should not wear dresses above the knee, even if she is fit and works out. This is wrong, for men seem to be considered still attractive when they get older. No one gets ugly as soon as they turn 22 years old. You still remain attractive but you are just older.
These things can cause issues in society when people wind up not getting along with each other because some people need to put other in a box.
Listening to our beloved GOD will give us they encouragement you need, every single time. It will come from like minded people who love GOD as well as you. For any friend that will stop and pray right along with you is a blessing.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
King James Version (KJV)
I came across this on YouTube. I found it very interesting so I am sharing it with you. We live in a fallen world and GOD will send HIS angels to watch over us.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Thank you all for taking the time to read my post in this blog. I pray that you all will have a blessed day. feel free to pass it forward to others you know who will need encouragement too.
