Life Preserver

What is your life preserver? When you’re in trouble or something tragic has happened you or what do you turn to? We all have different life preservers. My life preserver I time of trouble is Christ and His word. I can not make it through difficult time without going to Christ. I need to know what to and that He will handle it. Prayer and read His word is my assurance that I have nothing to worry about that it’s all in his hands.

I am thankful for my life preserver.

The Power of words!

I want you to read the story of the valley of dry bones. It sounds just like a scene from a movie. People are so into watching scary movies, but think the Bible is boring! Well, guess what it’s not! How would you feel if you were actually watching this scene unfold?

As you read, please think about these things.

1. Did Ezekiel obey God?

2. What was he told to do?

3. What happened with Ezekiel?

4. How did the bones come to life?

Ezekiel 37:1-10 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

The power of God’s words is great! All you have to do is obey his voice and you will be blessed. The power that comes from the mouth of God can be compared to nothing! He raises people from the dead, heals the sick, even the seas obey his voice. The next time you ask him for guidance you should just sit and listen because you will hear the still soft voice speaking to you, but don’t be fooled because that VOICE has the greatest power that you’ll ever see or feel!

Crazy life!

Hey y’all! My last year and half has been nuts! Especially, the last two months of 2018! A son coming home from basic training & now leaving for UNG on Thursday, 4 surgeries, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Totally crazy life. I asked God in 2017 for a better year in 2018 & he made it happen. He keeps me sane! We have missed the most church in these months than we ever have. Sometimes life happens and with God first we made it step by step. Everyone fails and falls behind, but always remember why you’re here. My focus for 2019 is to put God first and keep my eyes on him.

Be authentic!

I am always surprised at how people will flutter from one thing to the next trying to make themselves into something they’re not. Just because the majority is doing it doesn’t mean it’s right. Don’t follow the crowd! Be yourself! The only one to follow is Christ. He is always right & will never leave you when you completely mess up. Show people who you really are. Believe me! I have had a struggle with this especially when I was in my teens, 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s! Do you get my point?! It’s always a struggle to be authentic and to be real. The focus in my life is to be real with you. Too many people out there are lying to your face! Pull up your big girl panties, step out of your comfort zone and be real!

If you want to be in the right side then grab your bible and start studying. You can go with the majority or you can be right. It’s your choice! I choose to show others what being authentic and real looks like. Jesus isn’t a fake and neither am I.

Rare With a Purpose!

I’m working at our local high school today. As I was walking around the room when the girl said she was reading another girl’s palms. I smiled and said, really! She wanted me to hold out my hand is a certain way, so I played along. She pointed to the main increase in my palms. They connected and sloped down word. She told me that that meant I was rear. The young lady continued to say that those that are rare have a specific purpose in life. I replied to her, I believe that I do! Then I walked away. As I sat working on my devotional book and God spoke to me. ” You were created This way for a specific purpose in your life. Being rare is special and being a child of God is definitely a rarity!” When God reveals your purpose, wow! Nothing can stop you! Be proud of your rarity, it sets you apart from the world. Fight for your purpose, because nothing God opens can be closed. Ephesians 1:8-11, Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made a known unto us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure which he has purpose in himself: that in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth; even in him: In whom, also we have obtained it an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who work at all things after the council of his own will.

Revelation 3:7-8, …these things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth and no man openeth; I know that works: behold, I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it for thou has a little strength and have kept my word, and has not denied my name.

Second Corinthians 2:11-12, Lest Satan should get advantage of us for we are not ignorant of his devices furthermore when I came to Troas preach Christ Gospel and the door was open and to me oh the Lord.

Sweet friend, don’t forget that you were rare and don’t forget that you have a purpose in this life. And no matter how you see that purpose and your mind it could be small but in the Lord’s mind it’s always great!

Start each day being grateful.

I am starting out today with a grateful heart. ❤️ Sometimes we take things for granted. Those little things in our lives that we do every single day, day in and day out, are usually the ones that we do take for granted! I am grateful because I live in this wonderful country where I have the freedom to read God‘s word and study His word, so that I can be closer to Him. I have the freedom to make the choice to stay at home or go out and work to provide for my family. I am grateful that I am able to help those around me and complete strangers every day I always have a choice. I’m grateful that God has placed so many different people in my life at different times that of helped me to grow as a person and spiritually. I’m grateful that I have been given the opportunity to have a part in a business that care so much about people’s health. There is nothing, I mean nothing, in my life that I would change. I am grateful that God has given me the life that He has.

Are You Ready?

Dear friends, Are you ready for the time that you meet Christ Jesus? Have you been watchful and steadfast in your faith? Do you live separate from the world or are you trying to balance the world and your faith? We can not serve two masters. Do you have a religion or is it a relationship with your Heavenly Father? Think about these questions as you go throughout your day. If you answer no to anyone of these, take time to get on your knees and ask Christ to make you who you need to be for Him. Our lives should reflect Jesus Christ. You may have heard the saying, “You may be the only light of Christ that people see today.”

This is true! We, as Christians, are His light that shines in this dark dark world! We all fail and make mistakes, but striving to be that person God wants us to be is all we can do.
