Hello all. It is a rainy day here in Houston, Texas. Thank God for the rain. We truly need it.
I have been listening to a series from White Dove Fellowship Church in Harvey, LA, (pastor, Mike Mille (me lay)) dealing with being blessed conscious as Christians. The Bible has many, many promises for us as believers in Christ Jesus. Some say over 7,000 promises are for us in Scripture.
As I listened, and re-listened, to Mille’s sermons with titles such as “Be Blessed Conscious”, Do it Now”, “Let it Go Now” and “Significant”, I got to thinking about the abundance of life as a Christian, specifically the supernatural abundance. Christ says He came so that we might have life and have it abundantly. Continue reading →
Hoping all is well with you and yours.
One of the few things in life I hate are daily news programs (maybe hate is too strong an emotion; maybe utter disdain is a better description). I find ‘them’ to be so negative, depressing and lacking (most of the time, anything good. Even the weather forecasters present the dreary before the beauty. And if there is anything good, or positive, or uplifting to report such encouragement typically comes within the last few minutes of the ‘news’. Its’ presentation is almost hypnotic, especially the cable news broadcasting – so repetitive in nature, so opinionated. When did news become someone’s viewpoint?
Today, I happened to look at the TV screen when the news broad-caster mentioned something about someone jumping to their death from a bridge in Los Angeles, CA., and I thought WOW… How can life get so bad that you want to end it? I know life has its issues, but to end such a precious thing, something that we had nothing to do with; and I thought what was wrong, where was this person’s hope, his support; did they not feel loved? Why was this person so despairing of life? Continue reading →
Whom art thou, o Lord, my God?

Happy Weekend to you and yours! I am still praying for rain for a good number of lakes and rivers in Texas are less than half full. Please continue to pray with me for rain.
I must say that this T&P is more for me than anyone. My most recent prayer has been for God to change me for I have been convicted of needing some modifications in my being. Friday morning, after praying, I opened up Charles ‘Chuck’ Swindoll’s book “The Grace Awakening” and found myself reading Chapter 8 “The Grace to Let Others Be”. As I read, I had to laugh because my God is faithful, (He always gives me what I need) I just didn’t think He would speak so directly to me, so quickly. Continue reading →
Hello all! May God’s favor be bestowed upon you and yours and may all your prayers be answered in accordance to God’s will for your lives! Amen!
GOD IS FAITHFUL!
Having gone through some stuff, with a word of encouragement, my sister-in-law sent me a text message with just those three words … God is Faithful – and I recall thinking hmmm and repeating the words to myself… God is Faithful. I was in awe of those words. I’d heard those words before. I’d seen those words time and time again in scripture, but with her text, those words took on new meaning.
