What Happened to the Abundance?

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 →

He Reigns!

I heard this song this morning and my heart rejoiced in God’s goodness, His warmth and tender mercies.  I lifted my hands in praise to an Almighty God, a faithful God. He who says, I will do ALL that I have promised you! All God’s children singing Glory, Glory, Hallelujah – He Reigns, He Reigns.

1prayerMay your spirit be filled with great joy this day! May your worries, anxieties and fears be cast upon the cross. May the fire of your faith be stirred up and may you stand strong as the cedars of Lebanon.

May all God’s children sing Glory, Glory, Hallelujah, Yes –  He reigns. Let us make a joyful noise unto the Lord! No rock shall praise God in our stead. Open our mouths and fill it with praise.  Let all God’s children sing Glory, Glory! In Jesus name, we so pray! Amen.

His Hand on You

Spring is in the air and I absolutely bask in this time of year. The fragrant smell of spring on a clear (without the checker boarding of the ‘now-too-often-seen’ chem trails), breezy day is so refreshing. The best part is hearing the birds singing away:  the cardinals (their presence always gives me hope) whistling, the mocking birds mimicking their neighbors, the woodpecker, well, pecking. It is amazing how they just chatter all the daylong in what I describe as utter perfect praise! Their ‘voices’ are so encouraging for me.

Everything about spring effortlessly brings a smile upon my face. The birds, flowers, breezes, storms, clear blue skies and butterflies – they offer, to me, comfort and reassurance that all is well. I see the effects of the wind and I am reminded that just as I don’t see God, I see the effects of His actions in my life – His faithfulness; His goodness; His answering of so many of my prayers; His hands upon me and mine.

The Left Shark

Blessings! I know everyone who is a football fan watched the 2015 Super Bowl game. What a game! My team lost, but interestingly enough, Katy Perry’s left shark got just as much media attention as the game!

As I replayed the halftime show, I had a really good laugh as I watched the left shark a little off in its choreography (YouTube video of Katy Perry’s 2015 SuperBowl performance) Don’t you feel like that sometime? Continue reading →

A Selfish Prayer

1_john_5_14Father, I know you love me for it is not written that I am the righteousness of God in Christ; am I not your beloved child; your very special possession for have I not chosen you as my Lord and savior? Art thou not my salvation?

I know you are with me. I know you are for me. I know you abide in me. I know you are HE who sustains me. I know there is an appointed time for everything under the sun and in my life.

Father, you who have collected my tears; you who have counted the strands of hair on my head; you who knew me and formed me before the foundation of the earth – does not your word say there is no shame for those whose trust and hope is in you? Father your word says surely you will bless me. Your word says that you will increase me and my children more and more. Your word says that I am your special possession. Your word says ask and it shall be given unto you. This I declare unto me for that is what you have promised me and Lord, I am holding you to it.   Continue reading →
