Enter into the promises of God. It is your inheritance. You will do more in one year if you are really filled with the Holy Ghost than you could do in fifty years apart from Him.

Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.

While others still slept, He went away to pray and to renew His strength in communion with His Father. He had need of this, otherwise He would not have been ready for the new day. The holy work of delivering souls demands constant renewal through fellowship with God.

Let our voice be heard and not be afraid nor intimidated by those who try to get us to shut up and dry out.

What Is A Friend?

A friend is someone always there
in the back of your mind,
providing feelings of comfort and security.
A friend is someone
who adds happy sparkle to your life,
joy, fun, a predictable creator of happiness.
A friend is a stormproof shelter
from lifes challenges, troubles, uncertainties,
an unassailable bond overcoming any challenge,
strengthening the connection in the process.
You are all this and more, my friend.
Thank you.

Chosen Vessel

The Master was searching for a vessel to use
On the shelf there were many which one would He choose?

"Take me, cried the gold one I'm shiny and bright,
I'm of great value and I do things just right.

My beauty and luster will outshine the rest
And for someone like you, Master, gold would be the best!"

The Master passed on with no word at all;
He looked at a silver urn, narrow and tall;

"I'll serve you, dear Master, I'll pour out your wine
And I'll be at your table whenever you dine,

My lines are so graceful, my carvings so true,
And my silver will always compliment you."

Unheeding the Master passed on to the brass,
It was wide mouthed and shallow, and polished like glass.

"Here! Here!" cried the vessel, I know I will do.
Place me on your table for all men to view."

He Is Faithful

He is faithful
Faithful to help
Help see beyond the problems of life
Looking into the perfection of peace and joy

He is faithful
Faithful to help carry them in his mighty hands
The same hands that measured the waters
Even that which makes up the oceans
If he carried that, surely, all my problems he could

Never mind the mocker
Who finds talking to God ridiculous
He is a sucker for the known, a rocker to ungodliness
A reprobate mind he has got
To know the living God he cannot
Till the veil over his soul is lifted
By the One he mocks in ignorance
The true living God

I know God is faithful
To pardon the years of ignorance
To wipe away tears that flowed night and day
To strengthen faith in love
Which had caused death by its flight
He is faithful I am sure
For all things are subject to him
So He controls all my plights

It is real
The passion sealed
I in Him and He in me
Love me ever
Leave me never
A heartfelt cry of mine
Always answered with the gentle tug of His Spirit
I just know that He is faithful

Hope you enjoy the following poem...

The Power of Friends

Everyone knows of the power of friends,
The terrific result, when everything blends.
When people have friends, they dont stand alone;
Friends always help, when you face the unknown.

Friends give you courage to face problems untold,
So the love of a friend can help make you bold.
They can help you to live a much richer life,
So your every day living will be less filled with strife.

Thanks for being my friend!

Good Morning, this is GOD I will be handling ALL your problems today.

Please remember ... I WILL NOT NEED YOUR HELP!!!

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD Box (something for God to do). It will be addressed in My time, not yours. Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it.

Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of your problem. If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is the proper resolution.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad, think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful! There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember ... things could be worse. You could be them!!!

Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest, my child.

If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.

Love Eternally, The Lord your God

The Beauty Within

The beauty we have
Is found within
And is more than a pretty face
It's the beauty of God
And is only found
In His love and transforming grace

The world only looks
At the outward shell
And not on what's there inside,
But God will reveal
The beauty within
As the beauty of Jesus Christ

Do not strive in your own strength; cast yourself at the feet of the Lord Jesus, and wait upon Him in the sure confidence that He is with you, and works in you. Strive in prayer; let faith fill your heart-so will you be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.

Your Name

You got it from your Father
It was all he had to give,
So it's yours to use and cherish
For as long as you may live.

If you lose the watch he gave you
It can always be replaced;
But a black mark on your name
Can never be erased.

It was clean the day you took it,
And a worthy name to bear.
When he got it from his Father
There was no dishonor there.

So make sure you guard it wisely,
After all is said and done,
You'll be glad the name is spotless,
When you give it to your son.

I Asked the Lord to Bless You

I asked the Lord to bless you
As I prayed for you today
to guide you and protect you
as you go along the way...

His love is always with you
His promises are true
and when we give him all of our cares
you know He will see us through

So when the road you are traveling on
seems difficult at best
just remember I am here praying
and God will do the rest.

Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
Understands you

eXplains things you don't understand
Yells when you won't listen, and
Zaps you back to reality

God's Peace

Gods tender love and peace
Is what we all long for
In a world so hopelessly chaotic,
So unstable and unsure

It brings stability to our minds
And calmness to our souls,
For that is what we desperately need
As this world can be so cold

We need to have Gods peace
When turmoils in our lives,
For Gods peace doesnt depend
On the daily pressures of life

When we have those stressful days,
Gods peace can often soothe
And bring us such a quiet hope
That chases away the blues

So when you feel the pressure on,
Remember Jesus Christ,
Receive from Him the peace He gives
As His daily dose for life!

ON THE WINGS OF PRAYER

Just close your eyes and open your heart,
And feel your worries and cares depart.
Just yield yourself to the Father above,
And let Him hold you secure in His love.

For life on earth grows more involved,
With endless problems that can't be solved,
But God only ask us to do our best,
Then He will take over and finish the rest...

So when you are tired, discouraged and blue,
There is always one door that is open to you,
And that is the door to The House of Prayer,
And you'll find God waiting to meet you there.

And The House of Prayer is no further away,
Than the quiet spot where you kneel and pray.
For the heart is a temple when God is there
As we place ourselves in His loving care.

And He hears every prayer and answers each one
When we Pray in His name - Thy will be done.
The burdens that seemed too heavy to bear
Are lifted away on the wings of a prayer.

"My transparency shows my contents so dear,

Though fragile am I,I will serve you with pride,
And I'm sure I'll be happy in your home to abide."

The Master came next to a vessel of wood,
Polished and carved, it solidly stood.

"You may use me, dear Master", the wooden bowl said.
"But I'd rather you used me for fruit, not for bread!"

Then the Master looked down and saw a vessel of clay,
Empty and broken it helplessly lay.

No hope had the vessel that the master might choose,
To cleanse and make whole, to fill and to use.

Ah! This is the vessel I've been hoping to find,
I will mend and use it and make it all mine.

I need not the vessel with pride of itself;
Nor the one who is narrow to sit on the shelf;

Nor the one who is big mouthed and shallow and loud;
Nor one who displays his contents so proud;

Nor the one who thinks he can do all things just right;
But this plain earthy vessel filled with my power and might

Then gently He lifted the vessel of clay.
Mended and cleansed it and filled it that day.

Spoke to it kindly "There's work you must do.
Just pour out to others as I pour into you."

2 Timothy 4:6-8 (NKJV)

Pauls Valedictory

6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

Let's Keep our Eyes on Jesus, let's finish the race and keep the faith! Have a Jesus Filled Day! Happy New Year and God Bless

New Years Prayer

Dear Lord,
In the new year, we pray
that You will guide us each new day
in paths that are pleasing to You.
Lord, the new year gives us another chance
to rededicate our lives to You,
to study Your Word
so that we know right from wrong
and to act in accordance with Your commands.
Thank You for the sense of
direction, purpose and peace we get
from aligning our lives with Your Holy will.
We pray for the strength and the will to obey You
each and every day of the new year,
and when we fail, we pray for Your mercy,
Your compassion, Your grace and Your love.
Help us in the new year to be Your faithful servants.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Quote: Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. Thats why its a comfort to go hand in hand. By Emily Kimbrough


SPARKPEOPLE TRANSLATION

We all know someone whos been having a rough time or someone whos luck seems to always run short. What can you do about it? You can remember that we all have bad days and offer support. Think about how much it means to you when someone offers a shoulder or helping hand when youre having a bad day. Use that feeling of gratitude to help someone else. Become someones inspiration and hope, showing them that it is okay to stumble, offering a hand, and helping them up again!

A light hidden under a basket cannot be seen, however a light that is set on a lampstand can be seen by all who pass by the lampstand.

Matthew 5:14-15

New King James Version (NKJV)

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Remember there is no distance with God. What God has done in the past He is well able to move on the hearts of His people today.

We can always depend upon our God, He said in His Word, He will meet our needs, He loves us with an everlasting love,He will never see us begging for bread, for God will supply all our needs, We serve a Mighty God who will save us and the One who rejoices over you, He will never leave us or forsake us, He loves us with an ever-lasting love, He is Abba Father, (our Daddy) the One who provides.

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Psalm 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

Youre Always There for Me

When the world comes crashing in
And chaos rules my mind,
I turn my heart to you, Lord,
And pure, sweet peace I find.

You lift me out of trouble
You comfort me in pain;
You nourish, heal and cleanse me,
Like cool, refreshing rain.

In times of joy and bliss,
When things are going right,
You lift me even higher,
And fill me with delight.

You listen to my prayers;
You hear my every plea;
Im safe because I know
Youre always there for me.

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.


Spark People Translation

Being a friend is no easy task. Being a friend is not a one-way street. Being a friend is not about when its convenient for you and only then. Being a friend is about helping out, even if you dont have time for it. Do you remember a time when you totally blew something off because a friend needed help from someone? You probably do, and you probably did not even hesitate to help out either. And you can probably think of plenty of times when a friend did the same thing for you. So when you are feeling down or need some help, give a friend a call. They are just waiting to help, just like how you are waiting to help them.

DONITA225, I'm sorry for your lost, we lost our Pastor 2 years ago. It was a long drawn out process to find another one.
Before we got the one we have now, we had another one after, Pastor died. He was with us for about a year.

Courage is like a muscle; it is strengthened by use.

Spark People Translation:

Sometimes it is hard to be courageous. Try to think of the last time when you had trouble remaining courageous. Maybe youve recently lost your job and you find yourself scared about where the money is going to come from or a close friend/ family member has recently passed away and you find yourself scared about the future without them? When situations get hard and you find yourself full of fear, remember that courage is strengthened by use. You must constantly be developing this ability to remain calm and courageous. If you continue to work on this skill, you will find that difficult situations will be easier to handle. They might not be any less painful, but you will be more able to overcome the hurdles with courage.
