I need you!

As a single parent and woman I have learned many things the hard way.   Now, I want to be able to give back to the community and the world through Jesus Christ and his gift of creativity to help others by showing them what I have learned.  I started this nonprofit organization to minister others through Gods truth to show them what he did for me and the tools and people who he used for this great blessing.

I need your help to keep this organization going. By donating and sharing our organization information with others you can help keep us alive and going strong.

Donations from individuals as well as corporations will be a great help.  There are many great things I hope to accomplish for the world.  I pray and thank you for your help in anyway.

God Bless You,

Battle of The Heart

samurais_sword_fighting_md_wm

Being passionate about something is wonderful it means that your heart is in it.  God gives us passion for things to use for his glory.  Your heart is your motivation and shows what you love and care about most.

One of the tough things in life to overcome is being wrong about something you are passionate about.  When you believe with all your heart that you are right and then it turns out you were wrong it can become a great battle in the heart and for humility and pride.  I can literally see pride telling humility, “On guard” as they pick up their swords to battle out for the righteous one…You want humility to win but sometimes pride gets the first stab.

But through the bloody battle of righteousness Jesus will put out his hand to pull you through; you need only to take hold of it.

God made you for a purpose.  “Your hands shaped me and made me, Lord.” Job 10:8 (NIV)

“Serve the Lord with all your heart.” 1 Samuel 12:20 (NIV)

 

 

Rise and Do Good

He died for us so that we may live for him. Love one another as Jesus loves you and serve one another as he serves us. I hope you have a wonderful Easter celebration.  May God bless you and take the sorrow from your hearts and fill you with joy.

“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do.”  Ephesians 6:7-8 NIV

“Before I made you in your mother’s womb, I chose you. Before you were born; I set you apart for a special work, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 1:5 (NCV)

“It is God who saved us and chose us for his holy work, not because we deserved it but because that was his plan.”  2 Timothy 1:9 (TLB)

“Our love for each other proves that we have gone from death to life.” 1 John 3:14

 

Dress with Your New Life is S.U.C.C.E.S.S

To be reborn is to give up the old life and old ways of doing things and dress yourself in the new gift of life and new righteous ways of living.  Dressing yourself in the new life is true success because it is the harder way to live in this fallen world.  Life can be called many things but to me it is a battle so I put on the armor of God everyday so that I become like a peaceful warrior unless called to be a little more rowdy.

” You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:22-24 (NIV)

There are three things that you should do:

  1. Believe God is working in your life even when you don’t feel it.  “God began doing a good work in you, and I am sure he will continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again.” Philippians 1:6
  2. Keep a notebook of lessons learned.  “It’s crucial that we keep a firm grip on what we’ve heard so that we don’t drift off.” Hebrews 2:1 (MSG)  “Practice spiritual disciplines. Devote your life to them so that everyone can see your progress.” 1 Timothy 4:15 (GWT)
  3. Be patient with God and with yourself. (This is the toughest one) “Don’t try to get out of anything prematurely.  Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed.” James 1:4 (MSG)But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow,[a] do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” Habakkuk 2:3 (TLB)

Dress for Success in a new life of Christ and you will be blessed.

Do The Work

As I encouraged my nephew around the skating I told him that we have to practice to become good at skating. I fell a lot when I first started roller skating and I even fell today helping him as he fell. Hit my head too. 😄

The point is we have to do the work to get anywhere in life. You want change? Do the work. You want a better life? Do the work. You want to know God? Do the work. Love? Family? Do the work.

Proverbs 6:10-11New International Version (NIV)

10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the hands to rest—
11 and poverty will come on you like a thief
    and scarcity like an armed man.

Problem Solving.. Where’s the remote control?

Have you ever wished you could have a remote control to life?  You could use the remote to rewind, fast forward, stop, just pause or in the case of someone else’s life you could just rewind to where everything went wrong and fix it.  Well although creative  minds have made movies about it; we can’t.  Only God can fix what is broken inside of us and it can be frustrating for people who by nature are problem solvers.

God gives us the things we need and what we need is not always what we want at the time.  We do not get to see the blue prints of God’s plan but we do get to see the next step when it’s time.

It’s heartbreaking to see people destroying their lives when they have been given the tools to make it better.  When I mess up and disregard Gods word he lets me know it pretty instantly.  But with each new day I repent and renew my love for him and ask for the wisdom to be wiser and the peace to do his will.

I wasn’t always this humble but thankfully I was given one of the greatest blessings you could ever receive.  My blinders were lifted and I received a second chance at living my life.  It is a blessing that is rare but  brings more riches than gold.

 

God sets himself against the proud, but he shows favor to the humble.  So humble yourselves before the God.   James 4:6-7 NLT
