Words of faith;Claim and receive in Jesus name!This not only applies to me but also unto you:For He is Lord of all, whom will Receive His blessings!I was inspired as I give this word,Thank you Jesus! I am more than a conquer in Christ Jesus!When I am week,He is strong.He loves me,I am beautiful and wonderfully made.I am blessed-We are all these things in Christ Jesus!He blesses my comings and my goings.I am highly favored,anointed and Heir to My Lord and Savior,For He is my King of Kings!My children find favor in all they do;because my Lord, whom loves me-loves them too!I am made perfect in Him.He has given me every good gift!I make my boast in the Lord,My Savior,My Sword!He fights off the enemy giving me His grace-dying on the cross,taking my place.It was in that place of great exchange-He took all my sin and bore all my shame.He gave me His garment of snow pure white;allowing me to live and walk in His light.Where is your Sting O death,It is swallowed up in His Victory,Because Jesus gave His life on Calvary!With a great sigh and His last breath-He said,"It is Finished!"Setting us free without spot or blemish!I have been bought and paid for with such a great price, Yes my Jesus gave me His life!

Standing upon the Rock

We must first be Christ centered and have our minds fixed upon Him.When we focus on Him, that's when we really begin to attain and know who we are in Christ Jesus.Relationship with Him is the key component to Spiritual growth and is essential for a total trusting and reliance upon the Lord.When we begin to know Him and what His word says about us; We begin to see and our hearts become thankful.We can too many times put our trust in things other than God;Which can only lead to heartache and despair in our lives. If we seek first God and trust in Him with all our matters; He who is faithful will begin to do a new thing in our lives.Our hearts will begin to spring forth love and joy unspeakable.It is the belief in Christ Jesus for the saving of our souls.When He gave His life in exchange for our life;He paid it in full, our debt to sin washed away.Therefore He has brought forth His Righteousness to all who believe and trust upon Him for the saving of our soul.He is the way,the truth and the life;there is no other.If you put your trust in Christ he shall not let the foot of the righteous be moved!You are now building upon the rock which is Jesus a sure foundation.If you do not know Jesus and desire to know Him just say a prayer and ask Him to be Lord and Savior over your life today.Say I give you all my trust Father and I believe Jesus paid the price for my life with His.I am washed by His blood and cleansed set apart for His Glory!I am totally relying upon you Jesus and building on Your sure foundation for the salvation of my soul.I rest in thee Jesus until thy coming.In Jesus Holy name I pray Amen!If you have said this prayer and given your life unto Jesus;You know abide in Him and He in You.Walk always in the ways of the Lord listening unto His Council for He is the truth that shall set man free!If he shall set you free,You are free indeed.

Prayer is crucial in our lives if we intend on having a relationship with God.Through prayer we find a line of communication with the Father.We can boldly go before the throne room of God because His Son paid a price for each of us at the cross.It is His blood that we are forgiven and then may approach God.As we encounter prayer in our lives,It is a place where we can lay our burdens down at the feet of Jesus.It is through prayer that we are forgiven and may find peace with God.In prayer we develop a relationship with God,getting to know Him intimately.Worship is another form of prayer that can take you to a knew level of Knowing God, and who God really is.When we get to know God,We want to worship Him with all our very being. When Jesus walked the earth,He was found many times in prayer with His Father.He knew the importance of relationships and all that can be done in prayer.Prayer is a life line and at the other end of that life line we find Jesus,who is waiting to hear from you.He holds all the answers you will ever need.Just pick up that life line today and pray,Know Him, who cares for you.He is the Way ,the Truth and the life.Don't be disconnected from the life line.God bless you and may His love rein in your hearts as you get to know the Father Amen!

Let our eyes be fixed upon Jesus.Let our feet walk in all His ways.Let our voice be heard unto the Lord in songs of Praise,Let our ears be open to hear the word of God.We have Spiritual eyes to see and discern,We have hands to serve and do,We have Spiritual ears to hear with,We have a voice to Preach the Good News, Our feet are shod for the preparation of the Gospel,and in us A new heart filled with His love and joy.Let us love deeply,Being filled with compassion,always forgiving and rich in mercy. We were created with special members to Glorify and do the work of our Lord.

Walk in love,as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us,an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord....For we are His members of His body,of His flesh and of His bones.EPHESIANS 5:2,19,30

This little light of mine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.I remember those words to that old childhood song. It felt as if I had just sang it yesterday.I ventured off into my mind letting those words penetrate deep within my heart; It was there I found myself in a place as a very young child encountering my first experience with the Lord.What an incredible night this would turn out to be, so many many years ago. I began to go back to that place where it all started.I was walking down this cold,dark road that I had never been on before trying to find my way home.I could feel the presence of evil lurking all around me as I continued to walk. It felt as if it would never end.I was very frightened, I continued walking. I began to see people ahead in the distance standing on both sides of the walk way.I knew I had to get through, I began to call upon the Lord in prayer!"Lord,Lord help me I cried."I am so frightened,I do not know what to do.Unexpectedly something fell upon me that I shall never forget.It was His magnificent presence.My heart began to beat in accordance with Him,I was not afraid anymore.I knew He was with me.I had great joy within my heart. I began to sing praises to His name boldly. A candle light appeared that night and shinned in my path.I was now approaching those whom had been watching me.As our eyes locked and met for a brief moment, I began to sing, "This little light of mine,I'm gonna let it shine,Let it shine,Let it shine,Let it shine."I began skipping away fast through the light that God had set before me,before I knew it the light had led me straight home.I thank you Lord Jesus for this moment when I was only a 10 year old girl,I take this experience with me today as if it were back then, In it's fullness and meaning over my life.We start on that dark road but when we call upon Your name,You are a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.Emanuel,"God with us."

Empty House

As I walked into the house I began to see that it was empty and bare,It was cold and drab to be in the midst of.It's appearance at first sight was a little run down and rough around the edges.As I sat and starred, I knew this house could be something great with a little love and care.I picked up my cleaning supplies and began to clean the inside,During this cleaning process I began to see the inside come to life.It's walls began to sparkle and the floor's began to shine.There was now a sweet smelling aroma flowing throughout the house.I began to see it's potential.Later that day I began to fill the house with furniture and equip it with all it's basic needs.I could not wait to decorate it walls so that it lacked nothing.In the end I sat back with great joy and looked at the house that was once empty,bare and cold,that house did not exist no longer.The latter house in all it's glory was indeed greater than the former house.Through this parable I believe,"We should never judge a book by it's cover."If God is in the midst of changing, He will finish it just like this house.We however need to give it tender love in care.

Daily choices

We all have choices to make on a daily basis.The choice to speak positive or the choice to speak negatively,The choice to act positive or the choice to act negative.Ultimately these choices we endeavor upon can ultimately affect the people that surround us,Often they are the people we love the most such as our families and friends.We are surrounded by daily choices, Therefore we can choose to speak life or death into every situation by our words or actions.Recently I have experienced over several areas of my life, I could have chosen the negative road.Everything around me was proven to be negative with the natural eye.I gave into this negative energy for a while and began to pity myself quite frequently.Somehow I thought it might make me feel better.Unfortunately that was not the case,all my circumstances began to grow worse.It became like a cancer,and was spreading rapidly over my life.One day I decided I was going to be positive no matter what.If I do not see the results I wanted in my life,I would still remain positive to my words and actions,That had to count for something.Shortly after I made this change I began to see growth in areas where I could not of deemed possible.I was now endeavoring on new territory.I began to see dreams I had in my heart spring forth to life.I was speaking and acting with a positive force therefore I was attracting the positive energy.Pleasant words are like honeycomb,Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.Proverbs 16:24
