Boundaries To Let Go

It’s a beautiful thing when we exercise boundaries. (wink) Life gets a whole lot easier! Wahoo!

Praise The Lord because the joy of The Lord is my strength at this very moment. Friends, blessings as you enjoy your weekend.

I’ve got a special date with my Lord and Savior, Jesus. (wink)

Trials and Tribulations – Pray and Let Go

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? ~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~

JESUS IS RISEN A Reblog from Prophetic Voice

A reblog, of this awesome post, from my friend and sister in Christ, Shade. (smile) Have a blessed and Happy Easter!

“Where, Death, is your victory? Where, Death, is your power to hurt?” 56 Death gets its power to hurt from sin, and sin gets its power from the Law. 57 But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! (Corinthians 15:55-57)

He Died
The crucifixion of Jesus was a public display. The whole town came to watch Him die. He hung on the tree between two criminals naked. He was battered, disfigured, covered in His own blood, nailed to the cross looked absolutely helpless and hopeless. A Gusty and Horrific Scene.

Now for a moment, imagine how the disciples felt. What must have been racing through their mind as they went into hiding? They had given up their whole life to follow Jesus. They believed in Him. He was their Hero. The long anticipated Messiah. They dotted on His every word, His teaching, the promise of a better and an everlasting kingdom. They were full of hope, they witnessed Him healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, they saw the lame leaped like calve and the dead returned from the grave, raised back to life.

Then, all of sudden, in an instant everything changed! Every promise, and every hope disappeared into the thin air like a vapour! Every dream crashed and their world turned upside down. They faced the possibility of being crucified like their Master!

He Rose!
Now, in the middle of this turbulence, right in the midst of their hopelessness, pain, confusion and despair, out from no where, Bang! JESUS appeared, ALIVE! In an instant, again, everything changed! And In the flash of a moment everything Jesus told them, all their hopes and dreams came back to Life! Every promise Jesus made was fulfilled. His Word literally came to Pass before their eyes! Jesus is Alive! The WORD of God is ALIVE!! Hallelujah!!!

Today be encouraged in your situation, let your hope come Alive! Don’t allow discouragement to oppress your mind and hold you down. Don’t allow fear to steal your dream and your life. Put the devil where he truly belongs; under your feet! Believe in the Lord. Arise by faith in the Word of God and be healed in Jesus name!

Prayer Confession:
Dear Father thank you for sending Jesus to take the punishment I deserve. He has been judged for me. He exchanged His live for mine. I now have a new life, the very life of Jesus Christ is in me! It is impossible for sin, sickness and death to hold me hostage any more. I declare that I will not live a useless life, I will not die without fulfilling God’s plan for my life. I will live to a full ripe age. My life in Christ is exciting, I have passed from death to life, from sin to righteousness, from sickness to health, from poverty to abundance, from barrenness to fruitfulness. My life is for the glory of God, I will bless my world, constantly making progress, and advancing the kingdom of God on a daily basis. In Jesus powerful name! Amen!

Reflection: “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts” (Hebrews 4:12)

Third, I am grateful for those friends who share my posts via their social networks. Thank you and God bless you big!

I am still learning how to discipline my time when it comes to blogging. (shock face) Somedays, I run out of time and get so overwhelmed that I just roll past posting. (smile) That’s the beautiful thing about blogging; we get to make our schedule.

I admire those who post daily. It’s my goal someday. (smile) Right now, I will continue providing faith, encouragement and a sense of humor, as often as I can to bring a smile or chuckle your way. (smile)

I’ve met so many great and wonderful bloggers! I look forward to another year. (smile)

Be blessed and keep the faith today as I celebrate my one year blogging anniversary! (smile)

Have a great and blessed day! (cheesy smile) As always, your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Scams

My fellow bloggers, please join me in praying for all the single men and women duped by scams on the Internet.
Thank you Lord Jesus for giving me the courage to reach out to Saints in prayer for all single men and women duped by scams via the Internet. It is my faith that you can touch all of us to unite in prayer giving all single men and women out there the peace and dignity to move on without anyone’s judgement. It is unfortunate that it happened and it is our prayer that you move in a mighty way to heal and love us through this unfortunate time. Lead us to open up and not carry the burden. Lead us to forgive so we can move on, in Jesus name, I pray, Amen
