I find it ironic, that my writings are entitled: “Just My Thoughts” and yes, they are my thoughts, but they have come from experience, from life, from the hard knocks, from loneliness, desperation, sickness, and by healing, and by the mind of Christ, who comforted me, spoke to me, loved me even in my sins, and He has prompted me. My thoughts, come from Him, and His love, and I will never ever deny, or be so proudful, to think it is just me. Its God almighty!
I don’t claim to know it all. Or to try to force my beliefs down anyones throats….But when I know, what has worked for me, because of God, I cannot help, but give him glory. For He knows it all….Been there, and probably done it. I know better now. September 28th 2011
Be comfortable, as to who you are in Christ. Accept yourself. It takes time to grow. Be kind to yourself, and know, you are a child of the most high God. He guards you, and dances around you with love, and joy. Keep focused on His truths, His word, to find your way, to find secrets, to so many blessings. Let His Love, flow to you, and out of you, to others, even those, who are not lovable, so your cup, will be filled.
September 29th 2011
You are more of an influence, then you think you are. You are undermining, who you really are in Christ. The gift, that He has placed in you, is sitting dormant. You want to move, and say something, but you feel like your hands are tied. They are not. You are not gagged. You are able. You just need to see, and feel, the injustice. And say something. I know, this is for someone, God wants to know. I am just being obedient. He wants you to see this, and be obedient too. Love ya, whoever you are. Because Christ loves you….September 29th 2011
*What does it mean to wait on the Lord?
I have often said, waiting on the Lord, is the hardest thing to do. But, I have learned, that waiting on the Lord, builds strength, character, and perseverance. For there is no greater answer, or solution, then that of the Lords. Waiting on him, means you are faithful, as He is faithful. It means being committed. To the goal, and to know, He will test you in it. Waiting, means, when you have been waiting according to His timing, you will be ready for the blessing at hand. I have found, it is good, to wait on the Lord. For it changes me, to be worthy…..October 1, 2011*
There are many distractions in life. But one, must take the time, seek God, and be in His word. If you do not take these precautions, it leaves room for the devil, to quietly, invade your life. Your guard will be down, and you will be an easy target. Its like in the natural if one does not eat, you get weak. Same thing. You need Gods food, to fill you up. Or you starve yourself. And become weak. Spiritually, unable to defend yourself. October 1, 2011
I never, ever want to be the voice of doom. I never want to tell anyone, that it is hopeless, or that, it cannot be done. Even some Christians, will stop and say, “gee that is too bad.” And not offer, hope, or a prayer. Accepting a bad report. Say for example, someone who has a bad doctors report. But, I say; “By His Stripes, we are Healed.” Claim Gods word, for there is power, of life and death, in our tongues. Let us encourage one another. Iron, sharpening iron. And let us have hope, in the God, who tells us, all things, are possible with Him. Don’t let go! Be that light, that shines, hope, and truth! October 2nd 2011
There are many voices, in this world. Some good, and evil. Some, that sound good, but they are based on the lies of the devil. It is so sad, when people, do not know the difference, and they take advice from these voices. They follow them. I am so glad, I won’t follow a voice straight to hell. Because I know, the only voice that is true is Christ. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Any other voice, is not your friend. October 2, 2011
I don’t want to waste time. Time is valuable. When I was younger, I wasted time, I did not know, how to apply it, to be honest. But, now that I know who Christ is, and because I know, who I can be in Him, I want to use my time, bringing him glory, living for him abundantly. Applying any of my time, now, that does not include him, is truly a waste of time. I do not want to waste my time….October 3rd
Praise, is one of the most, powerful, tools, to have. In any situation. Praise Him, and see the difference.
Lord, I bless you, and praise you. Thank you Lord. How great you are. There is none else. You are the one true God, who gives life, and life abundantly. Yes, I thank you, and praise you…..
Did you ever long to fit in, but nobody invited you? There is one, who always has a place for you. Even if others, do not. Christ promises, he will never leave, or forsake you. No matter what others do. But you have to INVITE him. He is a gentleman. He will not force His attention to you. So understand this concept of “INVITATION” Love does….October 4th
Beloved, trust God today. For whatever situation, you are in. Or you think you are in. Remember the devil is a liar, and will try to confound you. He will try to defeat the plan of God, that is available to you. The word, the Holy word of God, is your promise. Even by others, in His word, you can have the same promise. Hold onto God, with every ounce of your being. Your enemies are defeated. Because of the blood of Jesus. He came to destroy the works of the enemy. Walk in trust….Walk in Love…. October 6th
I just heard a song, and the words said:…”Open Your Eyes and Dream” Open your spiritual eyes, my dear friends. Open your heart, open your spirit, to all God can do, and all you can do in God. Its a possibility. All things are possible. Never let go of your Hope in Christ. Never. If you do, then you would believe the lies of the devil. Open your spiritual eyes, in love.
Let God speak to you by His word. Sometimes, we go through things, and we feel all alone. But there is a God, who is spirit, and understands. Go to him, by His word, and let Him speak to you. Go to Him, like a child. With child like faith, and let him speak to you. Make sure the priority, is in trusting him. To have the mind of Christ, it is not complicated. God can resolve this. I know. …October 9th
Never get weary in well doing. Tests come, and go, Spend your time just looking at God, not the problem at hand. Surprisingly, as you praise him, as you concentrate on him, it will work out. Praise, and prayer, and just thankfulness, helps ease the situation. I will pray for you….October 10th
One thing God has taught me, in my walk, is to extend grace. You know there are so many other Christians, who may not believe quite like you do. They may not even know truth, or the truth they may know, has come, at a different pace. Never forget yes, we are growing on the vine, with Christ, but some may be at a different level. Love, is what unites us. Love is what needs to be seen. Be careful, how you relate. Even if you do not agree. Do not lose your peace, or get into strife. Extend grace…….October 12th
What are you holding onto, that you won’t let God take care of? It is stopping you from being free, from getting your blessings, from growing. From helping others. You hold onto this by your attitude, or by your intellectually reasoning. Doubting….By not releasing love. You need to pray about it, as I do. For I know this is for all of us. Christ is speaking….To release it. Are we? We need to, to be united in Christ. What is it for you personally? That you have to let go of…..October 13th
And as an after thought, hold onto this. For any need, for any healing, for any financial problem. For any family problem. FOR ANYTHING!!! Hold onto the sacrifice of the cross, for by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5. His body was broken, so our bodies can be made whole. He received our sorrows, so we can rejoice. He took it all for us. Let, us always, whenever, in doubt, always go back to the cross, to know. By what Christ did on the cross, there is always a way. Never, ever forget that, go back to the cross, for any need. He did it all for us. Praise God, thank you Jesus!!! October 15th
God looks at our hearts. He looks to see, if we are in truth. His truth. He looks to see, if we will compromise who we are, when no one is looking. We have to be honest with ourselves, and with God, and if we see something that is not right, we have to take it to God. And if we do not know which is right, or wrong….we have to know, that the word says, that a mans ways may seem right to them, but the end thereof is death. Proverbs 16:25 Spiritual death happens, when we are not seeking God. And His word. You might not even know it, unless you know, you are not reading or seeking Gods word. Be careful, this is your soul, you are playing with….October 16th
Let me clarify something. Religion, has to be challenged, always by the word of God, the Holy Bible. If the organization you are learning from, is not based on the word of God, the Holy Bible, you are aligning yourself, to things, that may not be of God. Love, walking in Love, teachings of Christ, teaching forgiveness, these are just some of the things, one needs, to learn and know. Anything else, is “religion” and will become rituals, and traditions, that will not benefit you now, or for eternity. I would not take a chance on this. Hell, is forever. In the love of Christ, I tell you this. So you know truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6 October 17th
You know someday, we are all going to stand before God, and to know, if He would hide His face, and ban that person, from the Kingdom of God, it would be, because they did not want to live a life holy of God. They did not accept Christ as Lord, and savior, and Gods plan for salvation. I just sense, more then ever….It is so important, to renew our mind daily with the word of God. Being in our Lords love. For, I can just see the angels, stopping them, at the gate, and they will not be able to enter the Kingdom of God, because they denied Gods holiness. To live, while they were on earth. October 18th
Sometimes, we can be in doubt. Discouraged…..but as I went into the presence of the Lord, He gave me strength. There He reminded me, with HIM all things are possible, in His presence. Dreams can come true, in His presence. Time, can be redeemed in His presence. All He says to do, is spend time with him, to be in His presence. By His word, by prayer, by being thankful, praising Him, and worshipping Him. He says “disciple” yourself in Him. In other words, discipline yourself, in Him. October 20th.
Taking time, in this discipline, to hear from Father. For he also speaks through His people. What are you speaking today, for yourself, and others? Is it love? Is it hope, encouragement, inspiration? Or is it doubt, labels, or even being quiet, when you know, you need to say something to help someone? What is God telling you to do?
Let not our hearts, get hard, or troubled, by the attacks of the enemy. By the stumbling blocks, he puts before us. Look to God, let him hold your hand in the journey of life. You will get through. Let love use you, be open to the Holy spirit. The things we have gone through, God will use, to help someone else. You have strength, to do all things through Christ, who strengthens you. Just be open to it by the Lord and His love. Love never fails. PASS IT ON! October 22nd
I feel in the spirit, a change, a new beginning. Walking with Christ on my journey, I sense blessings, and hope, that I had not felt, for a long, long time. I hold onto the fact, that God, is able. That all things are possible with him. This is not a wish, or just a dream. This is a reality. The reality, of proof is what He did on the cross, and by his resurrection, shows me how to believe. Change, can only be evident, as I tap into His resurrection. Another word for “change” not like politicians say it…. But like Christ said it by his “resurrection” by His blood, that I plead, I see RESURRECTION in my life….wow. New beginnings. And He blesses without sorrow. Praise God. October 23rd
Never let traditions, rules, by men, or religions, hold you back, from who you are in Christ. So many times, people feel they have to hold back, because what would people say? To be honest, I don’t care what people say about me. They have said things, and it was a lie. So, why should I let them dictate to me, what Christ said, when all I have to do is believe, and step out on His love. In faith. In love….In His promises. I am not ashamed of the gospel, or what Christ did for me. And I would never want to hurt Christ, just because people do not believe, like I do in what Christ did. Christ asks all of us. Like He asked Peter. Do you really love me? What will our answer be?
We live in strange times. But God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We change. It really is a matter of wanting to honor Him. The bible says, the harvest is plenteous, (souls) but the laborers are few. I labor for God, freely, because of my salvation. And is it always easy? No. Are there challenges yes? But God meets my needs, defends me, stands up for me, and protects me, and gives me more then I could ever fathom. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, what God can do for those who love him. I love him, and if we love Him, we will try, with every ounce of our being. I do not ever want to underestimate God. And with that, I praise him, worship him, and exalt His holy name. Blessings…..Thank you Father, I praise you, and thank you….Blessed is the name of the Lord.
I love when God just gives me a sense, of understanding, that He will take care of something for me. Because I trust him. I am comforted. But He has shown me over and over again. I do, praise Him, thank Him, and worship Him. He is like none else. There is no one like him. So, I boast in him….Thank you Father.
There comes a time, when the Lord, wants to do something for you, so spectacular, so wonderful, it would only be God who could do that. But He wants you to think, “Out of your box of reality,” Away from, your past, even your every day routine, and let him show you the possibilities. But you have to settle matters of the heart, matters of your salvation. Then begin, thinking of the outrageous, begin thinking of dreams and hopes, that can only be done by God himself. Start by thanking him, praising him, and worshipping him, for who He is. Just for those extreme dreams and ideas. He did after all create the universe. There are endless possibilities. Trust him. October 25th.
CONCERNING HALLOWEEN: The Bible says, woe to them who call evil good, and good evil. For we are called not to have fellowship with darkness, for what fellowship is there with darkness, and light? None. We are to submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee. You resist him, by not participating in this evil holiday. God hates it, so if you love God, one should hate it too….This honors God. People don’t think about the honor, but it is so important. October 26th 2011
GOD IS LOVE, AND LOVE NEVER FAILS. THEREFORE WE IN GODS LOVE CANNOT FAIL AS WELL. FOR GOD NEVER FAILS….YOU MAY THINK YOU HAVE FAILED, BUT THATS A LIE FROM THE ENEMY, BUT AS YOU REMAIN IN CHRIST, AND THAT IS THE KEY, REMAINING IN CHRIST, WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. DEAR ONES, THE TIMES, ARE UNSURE. BUT THE ONE THING WE CAN BE SURE OF, IS CHRIST, IS LOVE. HOLD ONTO THAT LOVE…..
LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE YOUR HEART. ITS NOT HARD TO CHOOSE CHRIST, WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT HE DID FOR YOU ON THE CROSS. THEREFORE, WHEN CHALLENGED, UNCERTAIN, DISMAYED, FRUSTRATED, OR JUST UNAWARE. LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE YOUR HEART, FOR YOU HAVE CHOSEN CHRIST. HE WILL MAKE A WAY….HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. JOHN 14:6. NO OTHER CAN DO WHAT CHRIST CAN DO. THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE WAY…..CHRIST IS THAT WAY. LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE YOUR HEART.
God is so good, never underestimate, what He can do for you. He brought me a gift, a gift of love, and family, that I will forever cherish. Out of no-where, this gift came. And I am grateful. I praise Him, and bless His holy name. Thank you, Father. I Cherish family,I cherish, moments like this. I Cherish God. For who He is….October 27th
When you are unsure, when you feel overwhelmed, when frustrated, I run to God. I don’t waste my time, trying to find an answer in this, or that or the other. Because if I go to God first, He brings an answer to me. He makes a way. He is the way, the truth, and life. Life, has so many complications. But, if we search for God, first, we find truth, to get us through…..His word, is truth. And it Has power, His supernatural power. Hold onto that truth, for an answer. Love in Christ, Elena
Yes let us love one another as Christ commanded us. Let us be a reflection of love, in love to all people. But let us be careful what we love. For not all things are of God. And we have to be careful. Because we do not want to be consumed by things or people, who are not of God. They can poison us, if we let them. We have to be careful.
November 2nd 2011
Theres nothing “like” telling someone, we love them. Sure, we can “like” each others thoughts, etc. But when you speak or, write, articulate your thoughts to someone, and just make them feel good, because you want to, theres nothing “like” that. I just feel so blessed, when others make it a point to share love with me. I want to be “like” that too….Wow what an inspiration, and you know who you are….Love you. Love ya all….
May the beauty of the Lord, fill your heart, with Hope, and revelation as to who HE is. As you seek His Kingdom, and His righteousness, the Kingdom of God, will be revealed in your mind, heart, and being. Your steps, will be ordered by God. You will know, what you know, and what to do. Because He has ordained, His plan in you. Begin, by thanking Him, praising Him, and worshipping Him, so it will be……glory to God! In the Highest!!! November 4th 2011
Being determined, in Christ, means, you step out of your comfort zone. It means you take the word, and pronounce your blessings, and pronounce who God is. And you stand on that, with every ounce of your being. Shake off, that old devil, for as you submit to God, resist that ugly old devil, he will leave. This is also Gods word. James 4:7. Be determined, in Christ. Grrrrrrrrrr…….lol, being joyful, as I am….lol.
Yes, God loves us the way we are. But, because of who He is, He knows, we can have potential, that far exceeds our own expectations. Today, I want to, tap into that source, of who He is. With love, with His word, with prayer, and praise. I want to expect, great blessings, but more then anything, I want to see my faith, reaching those new heights. To speak to my mountains. To change, if I am doing anything wrong. I do not want to stay the way I am, I want to reach others for Christ. And more then anything, I want to see my life fulfilled, because of who He is. I want to grow every day. Never content, with who I am, but because of who He is in me.
CHRIST IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. JOHN14:6 THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO THE FATHER. IT IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST, NOT RELIGION. OTHER RELIGIONS, SACRIFICE, THEMSELVES, OR OTHERS. CHRIST BECAME THE SACRIFICE FOR US,SO WE CAN HAVE LIFE, AND LIFE ABUNDANTLY. AND ALL HE ASKS IS THAT WE BELIEVE, THAT WE TAKE HIS GIFT OF GRACE FROM THIS SACRIFICE. IT CAME AT A GREAT COST, AND WE ALL NEED TO SEE IT. TIMES ARE SHOWING HIS RETURN. WHERE WILL YOU BE, WHEN YOU STAND BEFORE HIM? ITS NOT A JOKE. ITS REAL. HEAVEN OR HELL? TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION. MAKE A CHOICE FOR CHRIST, AND SEE YOUR LIFE CHANGE, BECAUSE HE WILL LIVE IN YOUR HEART…..
Hold onto who Christ is…..If you don’t know Him, you can find Him, by searching for Him. Let him, into your heart. Repent, believe and let Christ show you the way for your life. He will show you everything, you need to know, for your family, for finances, health, everything. To protect you, to inspire you, for everything. Including, and especially, for your Salvation. Thats just who He is. He is love. His love is the true way. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY. I know….. November 6th
The tools of our warfare against the enemy, is our responsibility to gain. By prayer, by the word, by each and everyone of us, sharing what we do with our friends, etc. To shine who Christ is! You cannot be effective in your own life, or that of others, unless you get out of your comfort zone. You have to take a stand, on your knees, to be effective.
Did you know, sin, stops, the plan, God has for us? It breaks our hearts too. Because we miss, what we can be in Christ. Sin, stops the plan of God, if we allow it. Or do not bring it to the obedience of Christ. If only people would see, and know. I hate sin. I hate how, it stopped me being the best I could have. Submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee. That submit part to God….. Is the most important part of getting rid of the devil!
You know, you always have to be on guard. Guarding your own spirit, against, the enemy. Watching what goes in your “eye-gate, ” “ear-gate” and so importantly, what you let out of your mouth. We have power of life and death in our tongues. Be on guard, know the tactics of the enemy. And for everything else, yes trust God, to be your protector. It is our responsibility, to “submit” to God, and resist the devil. He will flee. But be on guard. God will take care of the rest….November 8th.
Food for thought, many of us, (myself included) have hoped for a better education, better opportunities. And yes, education is good, no doubt about that. But, if it makes us rely on ourselves, and not God, that is not good. Scripture, tells us in II Timothy 2:15, Study, to show thyself approved unto God, a workman, who needs not be ashamed, who rightly divides the truth. I have studied Gods word for many, many years, now, and you know what? God takes care of me. More then I can say….If you feel inadequate. Open your Bible. Daily….Blessings, and love, Elena
Imagine Gods Kingdom, His House. In His house, all tribes, all tongues, all races, all ethnicities, are represented. All people. God loves all people. He is love. This is His hearts desire, that we would be united. In Christ. Dear one, in our churches, this has to be evident as well. “ON EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.” Like the scripture. Encourage, your pastors, priests, leaders etc. To invite all people, in the house of the Lord. In your church! Share this with everyone on your list. To remind them in Love, how important this is. Christ is returning, and he is not into “segregation.” The body of Christ needs to come together, in Love. This is a commandment from God. Love one another. November 10th 2011
When you grow in Christ, you do accept certain things. Gods power, His favor, His prosperity, His healings, His undeniable, love, He gave on the cross, and more then anything His love for all. Because you begin to see the change. You begin to see the difference, of who you were before, and after with Christ. Yes, it is good, to grow, so you can, as your heritage, claim, the promises of Gods word. The key is don’t give up, and go back to your old sinful nature, go on with robes of righteousness, in Christ. And grow, in all His promises….
To love, is a commandment, that we love our Lord first, and then others. Even ourselves, by forgiving…by being that vessel that is used by Christ. Love changes us, and others. God is love, and when we love, we are fulfilling who we are in Christ. Being love, is grateful….Thank you Jesus, for your Love, you shed on the cross, for me. I pray, to share love…..
Prayerful today, more so. Praying we the body of Christ, would grow, as to who we can be, and do, in Christ. Dear ones, pray for someone today. Remind yourself to pray for others. Even if it is just one person a day, make a habit, of praying for others. We all need it. Remember, Job, he had gone through so much. Long story short, plead the blood of Jesus, over yourself, and the person, you pray over, and see God bless you. Job was blessed, when he prayed for His friends. A double portion. JOB 42:10. AND THE LORD TURNED THE CAPTIVITY OF JOB, WHEN HE PRAYED FOR HIS FRIENDS. ALSO THE LORD GAVE JOB TWICE AS MUCH AS HE HAD BEFORE.
NOVEMBER 13TH 2011
This is true, we all sin, and come short of the glory of God. Though, the key is to bring it to the obedience of Christ. If one knows of Christ, and they are continuing, by hating, purposely disobeying God, sinning knowing, truth etc. They are eating at the devils table. They need to stop. They need to see what they are doing. Prayer can break it. As you pray for others, and for yourself. Submitting to God, in fear of God. Knowing there will be consequences, for disobedience.
We have to search the scriptures. We also have, and I know this is controversial, but be careful, of what version of the scriptures we read. I am a King James girl, because I have seen discrepencies, in other Bibles. Gods word is spiritual food, when people, mess with it, they mess with His recipe. We can only find truth, by prayer, and submitting totally to God. I love you and if I can, I will explain, or try to help. And if anything pray for you. But we must walk our walk individually, seeking Christ as the main mentor. He is the example. God sent…love you.
One thing, I have to admit, is that I hate greed. I hate to see, people, get ripped off, for things, that I suppose date me, but used to cost so much cheaper. Who remembers buying a candy bar for a nickel? Or a soda pop for a dime? Americans, have gotten there, as well. In this greed thing. I just think our economy would be better off, if people, would quit trying to get from the other person. And truly see, it is a problem. Get to the root of it. A campaign, to stop greed. Its all over, in ministries, at the grocery store, gas, etc. I am so glad God provides for my needs. Nothing missing with Christ. Nothing broken. As I plead the blood of Jesus. Yeah it is tight, but my eyes are on my provider, for who He is, not for what He can give me. It makes all the difference….Theres a clue, there, if someone can see it…
Every day, one should be able to say they learned something new….I did! I learned today, by a different perspective, that in Christ, 1+1 does not equal 2. 1+1 in Christ =1. For when we become one in Christ, we see, how His love grows in us, and we grow in him. We are the branches, He is the vine. We become one in Him. As the body of Christ. United. Simple math equation, that I will never look at the same.
Taking on the mindset of Christ, no matter what you face, requires, you are looking at Christ as one, with you. For you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Focusing today, on who Christ is in me. Not who I am. But who He is in me. Releasing my being, to His care. Actually, concentrating, on His authority. His love. His ways…as the truth, and way, and life. For me, in my being. Thinking, and pondering on who He is. Not me. Will guarantee…. Results, miracles, and blessings….Becoming one with Christ. For he is the vine, and I am the branch. And without Him, I can do nothing. I want to start doing things, and seeing results, because of who He is in me. Not my thoughts, as I take on the mind of Christ. His thoughts…. For I live, move, and have my being, in Christ. Blessings, and love….Elena November 16th 2011
If I could give a word, to the scoffer, the unbeliever, the faint, in heart, and in faith. The one, ready to give up….I would say; WAKE UP! THE DEVIL COMES TO KILL STEAL, AND DESTROY, AND HE IS TRYING TO TAKE YOUR SOUL. GIVE GOD GLORY, RAISE UP A BANNER, AND PRESS IN ON YOUR FAITH! TRUST GOD. PRAISE GOD! DO ALL YOU CAN TO STIR YOURSELF UP IN CHRIST. Dear hearts, its our responsibility, to press into God. God shows himself mighty in those who believe. Press into him. You cannot be quiet in this….or you will miss, the blessing God has. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Tomorrow could be too late. WAKE UP DEAR ONE!
Let us remind ourselves, and others, Christ is the way, the truth and life. More then ever, let us stir up our spirits, to know, there is no other way, for hope. For miracles, for blessings, prosperity, health. Only Christ can make that way dear ones. Tell others, to begin in His ways. To see results. To secure our salvation. Yes, Christ is the way, the truth and life. Today, we have a chance to get right on that road. The road of life. Eternal. Here, and on earth. Blessed. See the signs….they are saying begin the way, with Christ. November 18th (photo sign)
Just when you are at your lowest point, (or so it seems) God does a wonderful thing. I am so in awe of who God is. I am so, humbled. I feel the tears, because He renews my hope. I had a dream, I fought my enemy. Someone, who steals from me. And as I woke up, I just said, Lord, this is your battle. And then I got a blessing….will share more later. Love you all…..Beware of the Judas Kiss…..November 19th
Lord, I pray, to be Humble, so I will not stumble….November 20th
My cup, may not always be full, but at least I have a cup….Thank you Jesus. November 21, 2011
An exercise in faith, is seeing God take care of the problem. Or the need, etc. When having spiritual battles, I just see Jesus. I can actually envision, him. Commanding His angels, and they draw out their swords (the word of God) and the enemy flees….Just like Christ said….IT IS WRITTEN! Can you see it too?
I want to encourage you today. Because many of you feel empty. (I know, been there) But….being thankful to God, does something, I cannot explain. Perhaps, because you are taking your mind, off of your problems issues, finances, health, and you begin looking at the one who can take care of it. Christ Jesus. In Thankfulness, for your salvation, and all your blessings. He says in his word, for us to take His yoke, and he will make our burdens lighter. Being thankful, does that. Look, you may not feel full, you may be struggling. But if you have a cup, and you do, whether you know it or not, you are blessed. You are that cup dear one. You are the temple, the vessel of the most High God. We worship him, in spirit, and in truth. Let Him, fill your cup, your heart, your mind, your soul….With love. With His blessings, His promises. All things are possible with God. Thats a great place to Thank Him, for. Fill your cup, with that mindset, and whoa…watch out, you are about to be blessed. As God fills your cup, overflowing, nothing missing, nothing broken. Love you in Christ….
You know, for those who are afraid, or maybe ashamed to be called a Christian. All I gotta say, is it is so cool. To love Jesus! To know, that you know, God loves you. I am not ashamed of that!
I don’t want to look at others flaws, mistakes, etc. Compassion is the reminder, we are all on the vine, with Christ at different stages.
As I get older, hopefully wiser, in the fear of God. I realize, every good gift, I am thankful for is, because of Christ. How dare, me to think, its my ability. I earned this, or that. If I do anything, and it becomes great, or worthy, it is because of Christ within me. I know the difference. I was a loser. But now I am victorious in Christ. In all things, God deserves glory, and thanks, for just who He is. And I want to shout it out, as loud as I can. GLORY TO GOD, IN THE HIGHEST!!!!!!! November 25th 2011
“Ego has to go, when you truly give your heart to Christ.” I won’t hold onto who I am, but who He is in my heart…
Love has to be the dominant attribute, character, trait, virtue, within a Christians heart. God is love.
The world, may not accept you, or appreciate that you are a Christian. And that you talk about our Lord, sharing your testimony, the good things He has done for you. But you know, in your heart, what a difference it is. Let His love shine. It does make the difference. You know it….November 26th
When your own ability does not work. Let Christ’s ability work for you.
Know in faith, who you are in Christ. Better yet, know who God is in faith, by His word. This brings results! November 27th
Be careful not to judge someone. Unless you have walked in their shoes, you don’t know why they are ~ The way they are. Look with Love. November 28th
I want to be the kind of person, in Christ, who will look within, to see, if I am doing anything wrong. If my heart is not right, with God, how can I expect miracles? Blessings, etc. No one is perfect, and only the grace of God, can change a person. But at least, I will, try…..And with His help, I will continually, try and grow. To be the best, in Christ…..November 28th
Having the mind of Christ, comes from Gods word, and a heart, that knows His love. Knowing that love, makes the changes, in thinking….November 29th
A reminder to you, and myself. Faith pleases God. We must mix faith, and Gods word, together, His promises, to get that faith. That is the foundation. Then remind others, in love, that Faith produces results, miracles, watching our words, to not speak against, what the word of God says. In other words, negativity in our words, cancels, out, the promises. Because we have said and believed, the lie. God has given you the promise, now walk it out in faith….Yes, I must do this as well. Its a journey. In faith, believing, and applying the word of God. Together…..December 1, 2011
To keep my faith precious, and sacred, I remind myself of Christs sacrifice. His love….Keeps me in line. December 1, 2011
Sometimes, you may think you know whats right. But the Holy spirit, will speak to you, by the word of God, by a thought, by even a friend…..listen…being careful, not to toss the thought away, or the friend. December 1, 2011
Today, as a commitment, as an exercise of faith…..Look to God. Do not look at your problem. Look to God. And receive, an answer….December 2nd
VOW AND PAY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD: LET ALL THAT BE ROUND ABOUT HIM BRING PRESENTS UNTO HIM THAT OUGHT TO BE FEARED. Psalm 76:11
When you give, give as if it was the Lords hand you were putting that gift to. And see, him out bless you, in return…..December 3rd
I want to see with eyes of a child. Eyes, that see Gods love, His creation. His compassion, His truth, His boldness, His meekness, His Kindness, I want to see with His eyes. The lost….Love…..And then, I want to do something about it, as I look. Lord, answer my prayer. December 5th
Some people, resort to Christ as a crutch. But if everyone only knew, that He is the healer, of our souls, our hearts, our needs. They would not look at Him, as a crutch, but as truly life, the giver of life, and the only one who gave His life, so we could have life abundantly. Tell someone that today…..December 5th
AMEN…. WHEN WE PRAY GODS WORD, WE GET RESULTS. THATS WHY HE GAVE IT TO US….LOVE IT, I BELIEVE IT IS A SECRET, MANY PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW….BLESSINGS, ELENA December 6th
This thought, keeps coming to me, and so I share it with you.
IF YOU WANT TO DO GREAT THINGS, THEN DO GREAT THINGS…..I AM WITH YOU. I WILL NOT LEAVE OR FORSAKE YOU. YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST, WHO STRENGTHENS YOU….DECEMBER 6TH
CONSISTENCY, is the key, to accomplishing great things. One may get weary, tired, annoyed, because you do not see results. I know this….(sigh). But, I know, that I know, if you keep at it, and you do no give up, seeking God, for strength, you will accomplish, that which you are called to do. Again, the key is don’t give up. And if you have to, rest at the Lords feet, and then start all over again. Your strength, will become His strength, and you will finish, with great success. Be consistent, in who you are in Christ. Love ya… DECEMBER 7TH
AS THE HEART PANTETH AFTER THE WATER BROOKS, SO PANTETH MY SOUL AFTER THEE OH GOD. MY SOUL THIRSTETH FOR GOD, FOR THE LIVING GOD……PSALM 42:1-2
What compels you, or me, to seek God? Is it need, is it want? No doubt about it, life, is not life without God. But, is the priority, in seeking Him, correct, and right in his sight? I don’t want to have a priority to seek Him. A need, though, I do go to Him, for needs. What I want though, is just His presence. His sweet spirit. Just for who HE is. God almighty. I worship, Him, in spirit, and truth….Lord, I am thirsty for just you……December 8th
Ask the Holy Spirit, what should I pray for or who should I pray for? To bring answers, in someones life. To bring miracles, hope, and a testimony that gives glory to God. Let everything be done, to the glory of God, with that mind set. Watch God bless you….for doing so. December 9th
Taking the lemons, and planting the seeds. For more lemons. Then, sharing, the lemon-aid. Making the most, with what, God gives me…Yep, its one of those days. Did I forget to say, I am “sweetening” the lemon-aid, with a good attitude? Trying….LOL…..
Every day, is a gift from God, and I know that I need to remind myself of that. How I deal with situations, events, problems, etc. Depends so much on my attitude. I remind myself, what does God see? In me? I can’t be fake around him, and I can’t be fake with myself. I have to be honest within, and realize, I just have to try, and make the best, with what God gives me in that day. It will get better…..Being honest takes away the edge of all things, trusting Him, reminds me His love, is the gift. December 10th
Have you ever noticed, if your looking at your problem, you have taken your eyes off of God? Off of His promises, off of love. God is love….Makes one think, to get one’s priority back on God. It changes the perspective…The view, gets a whole lot better……DECEMBER 10th
~ WISDOM ~ true wisdom, can only come from God. In Fear of God. Its healthy to FEAR God. Keeps you out of trouble. DECEMBER 10TH
There are many, voices, many who claim, to come in the name of the Lord. But if the love is not there, I know, that I know, they are just impostors. In sheep’s clothing. Look for the love. If its not there, be very careful. This is what Christ told us would be evident….
We cannot wait, for something to happen, or someone, to inspire us. We need to stir up the gifts, the Holy spirit, in our own lives. By prayer, by worship, by just praising God, and if anything, just repeating the name of Jesus. Over and over again, if you cannot do more. Open your Bible, Gods word is alive. Read it, meditate on it, chew it….Wherever you are, whatever you may be going through…..God is able, but you muster up your strength, to seek Him. Call on God, don’t let the devil steal your blessings. Plead the blood of Jesus….there is power, in our Lords blood……December 11th 2011
Don’t let a bad vibe, a bad feeling, a nightmare, that seems to be a “daymare” become your reality. Bind it, seek God, and release, the blessing, according to Gods word. Lots of promises there, that God keeps. Your job, is just to find it, and believe it.
FOR EVERY HOUSE IS BUILDED BY SOME MAN: BUT HE THAT BUILT ALL THINGS IS GOD. Hebrews 3:4
I never, ever want to take for granted, any blessing, or any goal met, to state, that its my ability. It is God, who blesses me, by the life, He gives…..
And I am grateful to Him. December 12th
