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…

German Chicken and rice.From the site: https://www.tourism.de/top-100-most-delicious-german-meals/

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!!!

Have comfort knowing you are well loved.

Hello all, I do hope you all are well and virus free or getting over it and are on the mends.

Having the peace of mind and comfort knowing God Almighty loves you is so coming and peaceful. As you go through these times in this world I feel the need to remember and remind others of this blessing.

We will always meet more people who are not faithful than who are. And we will always need to be ready to spread the good news of the word. For there our Father lovingly will give instruction on life and how much HE loves us.

HE also tells us of the blunders we fall into when we want to do things our way and not HIS way in the Bible. We all have the freedom of choice on how we choose to live. HE showing us what people went through in the Bible from choosing the ways of man and not GOD’s. All in the old and new testament, so we will learn by example.

Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible are good examples. One who choose to follow GOD and one who thought he was god. Daniel was blessed for listening to GOD which kept his life simple and humble before GOD. Nebuchadnezzar thought he was a god and made people worship him or die.

Daniel chapter 5 verse 30-33 kjv

30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?

31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.

32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.

I have seen many in great power fall like this. Not knowing GOD, or that the things they do has consequences that are from the choices that was done to themselves or others. King Nebuchadnezzar is an example of this. He mocked GOD in his way and was brought to his knees for 7 years eating grass on all fours as an animal would have.

So all this is tosay, our GOD watches over us all. And those who do harm to those who love GOD will be brought down to their knees too as well in todays time.

No one can out do our GOD. Not even the devil for he was kicked out of heaven for all of the trouble he caused even before GOD created the earth. So what ever your situation is at this point, know that our GOD is greater and will heal.

Those who are the most stubborn and prideful wil be humbled.

Stay safe and sound. Stay healthy. Feel free to pass this blog forward to share with those who need to be encouraged too. Thank you very much for stopping by! 🙂

Peace!!!! 😀

Giving the word to others through handmade Bible tracts!

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are being safe and sound in this day and time of the COVI-19. Wash your hands and wear those disposable plastic gloves if you can. And wipe things down with disinfectant too. Wash your fresh veggies and fruits down with mild soapy water and rinse them off after that. AND above all stay in prayer and we all will get through this!

And once we do give thanks to GOD that HE has kept you safe and sound and got you through it. YAY!

I have been giving people I come across even for a minute some scripture to encourage them and brighten their day. You will be surprised to find that there are more people out there that will call on GOD and have faith than you realize! And this is so great to know!

Those of us who can , should make something to give to people to have in their hand to give them some comfort and scripture is it from what I know. Some people maybe looking for some kind of sign that GOD is still there. Being confused by what is happening tight now in 2020 today.

There are so many verses in the Bible that can touch all souls and give them some peace. Even those people I have met who were not strong in faith,are now starting to think about the things they do. And will find some peace in hearing scripture, but be cautious and use discernment. There are those who even if JESUS stood before them would not accept HIM. Pray over your tracts so that GOD will give you them to the ones who will listen and pray for those who will not. 🙂

Thank you JESUS for being my SAVIOR!

JESUS is showing us all HIS love! 🙂

Praise and glory be to GOD for another day that the LORD has given us all!

Hello all and thank you for taking the time to stop by and read this blog.

Tomorrow is the celebration of the day that our JESUS gave HIS life so that we all may live. As the obedient son of GOD, HE had done what was our GOD’s will to save the souls of all mankind that have accepted JESUS as savior.

Faith and the love of the most HIGH who sits on the throne and HIS beloved son JESUS is what keeps us all waiting for the return of JESUS so we can be in heaven where we all will know what it is to feel the pure unconditional love coming from GOD.

If you never truly felt love, then this is the one place you will surely feel it is in heaven. You only get a fraction of it living here on earth as a saved soul in the body of Christ. But the whole portion is there with our GOD.

JESUS paid the price for all of us to get there to live in our new home. JESUS suffered at the hands of mankind and HE did not have to at all. HE could have said to GOD please bring me home. But HE did not.

MARK 15:16-32 KJV

16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.
17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,
18 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
19 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, The King Of The Jews.
27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
King James Version

As I think about all of the nonsense that we who love GOD go through in this fallen world, I can not imagine being no way having the same love and peace without GOD and HIS son JESUS. Because I know I have their love all around me.

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41ExirwJkTL.AC.jpg

I cry when I think about how much our beloved GOD loves us so and HIS son JESUS too. When you see JESUS on the cross this is how much HE loved us, HE gave HIS life (it was not taken) on the cross. This is how horrible sin is to our souls….it is disfiguring pain taking all joy away from you.

It even hurts me within when a person says negative things about GOD, and how they have rejected GOD. And will not accept our JESUS as their savior. Some people have a misunderstanding with JESUS and maybe angry with him or our GOD. So being hurt and prideful they turn away. This is exactly what the evil one is hoping for, they we all would turn away from GOD and JESUS.

JESUS has risen from the dead!

Let us all be ever so grateful that a GOD loving, strong loving man like JESUS walked the face of the earth to give us courage, teach us the ways of GOD, and be the mediator between GOD and man for our prayers. JESUS knows what our pain and struggle feels like. Showing by example how to be righteous so we can get into heaven and have eternity with HIM.

Stay in prayer at all times and keep your faith. Thank you for coming by, pass it forward the word of GOD. Be messengers of peace and the word of GOD wherever you may go.

Peace!!! 🙂

Missing the fellowship due to COVI-19.


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!

Mt.Sinai Church of GOD in Binghamton New York. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1008875159143705

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.

First Christian Church of kirkwood. They will be moving from this location to the Little white Church in kirkwood shortly this month. 4-5-2020.
https://www.facebook.com/First-Christian-Church-of-Kirkwood-593970207412624

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.

Peace!!!!!

Psalm 91:10

Good morning everyone, I do pray that all is well with you all and that you are not struck by any kind of illness such as the covi-19.

Here in New York there is such a different way of life now since the virus made it to our shores. How we greet our loved ones to just even going to work and shopping for our food. Travel is different too, less traffic and conjestion to go through too. I do work for a hospital and even thugh I want to sell my handmade items, the main job is what is bringing in the money right now.

People are more focused on buying the things that they do need the most of. And this is understandable. The tear of the unknown has made people go on a mad panic rush to buy toilet tissue.

I don’t get the rush for that, but I do for food. You can always wash yourself with soap and water and a washcloth in the shower when you do not have toilet tissue. In fact you will be cleaner if you did. Here are some thoughts on this site on alternatives to toilet tissue. https://parade.com/1011639/nicolepajer/toilet-paper-alternatives/

Fear is not a good thing to fall into, it confuses the mind and will have you distacted from our GOD as the correct thing to do. I know when I am talking to peoplle I will mention theses verses you see pictured here from Psalms 91:10-11.

GOD’s word is awesome and perfectly to the point. With all of the virus concerns regarding this pandemic, we still need to listen to GOD first and foremost. Information that comes in through your tv, radio, or other media will need righteous discernment to make it through all of this, and we will.

For we leave our faith in our ever loving GOD and HE will and does steer us clear of all evil. You will be in awe when you see the blessing that our GOD has given you and me once you can say “wow, we all made it through!” To all of your loved ones and friends.

Keep your hands washed and be safe and sound. Pass it forward to share and bless others.

Peace!

Listen to Gods warnings!

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!

Peace and love, stay healthy!
