Dear Ones,

Every where I seem to turn, I am hearing the beautiful song, Because He Lives. It is a thread weaving through my heart this week. It is because He lives, that I too, can live and live abundantly. Not necessarily in wealth, (though living in the West, even our poor are rich compared to the rest of the world…ponder this one, dear ones icon smile Because He Lives  ) but, in all ways.. in peace, in joy, in each day, I can live to the fullest because My Savior is no longer in the ground but has defeated death and the grave once and for all.

Jesus is…

Jesus is the reason we can rejoice and rest in the knowledge of eternal life which can start right now if you have asked Him to be your Lord and Savior! This is the week which we celebrate this fact but we really should focus on this every day of the year because this is an every day event. He is Risen, He lives and we are able to claim as Paul did, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil 1:21, ESV). We are no longer slaves to sin, we are no longer unable to live in such a way that we no real joy and real peace because He lives.

I do not want to give the impression that life of a Christ follower is without problems or trials. Not at all. We still live in  a world filled with strife and daily troubles. But, because He lives, we have a strength to rely on, a Savior who promised He would never leave us. See, this is not a life of religion but a relationship with the Son of God  who comes to each believer. We are created to have this relationship with God. He is a relational God. He seeks to share His grace with you. If you want to have this relationship with the God Who created you, Who loves you that He would die for your sins, please click here and please leave a comment here so I can pray with you!

See, I can sing this every day as I know My Savior Lives!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, all fear is gone and because I know He holds the future, and life is worth the living, JUST BECAUSE HE LIVES!

Woman who Fears the Lord

A Woman Who Fears the LORD

Prov3130 Woman who Fears the Lord

Fear the LORD?

In this day and age of Grace, fear is almost unheard of. Do we really need to Fear God? I believe His Word is very clear on this. YES. My Pastor spoke on this yesterday and I’m still chewing on it. I love it when I go to church and we dig deep into the meat of His WORD!  In the age of ‘easy grace’ where we are so tolerant that we are no different from the world. When the world looks at us, the church, they see nothing different. We allow sin to reside in our hearts and pretend it’s ok.

1  What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase?
2  May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?
3  Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?
4  Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.(Romans 6:1–4, NASB)

He has called us to be holy and blameless. We can not do this on our own. Only by the help of the Holy Spirit. We must be devoted to Jesus, being fully submitted to His will for our lives. We are called to be obedient. He knows we are weak and unable to live a holy life. We must be dependent on the Holy Spirit’s guiding in our lives!

I believe in His Grace! He paid a high price to extend to us all the free gift of His grace! I do not know where I’d be other than a pit if it was not for His great and free gift to me. I do not want to be caught taking it for granted!  I pray we do not take it lightly!

As we come upon our holiest  of celebrations, why not evaluate our lives to see what is not becoming to Him. What are we watching or listening too? The Holy Spirit is also watching and listening. What are we thinking about? Nothing in our lives are hidden. Our hearts are worth more than gold and fine silver to Him. He loves us with a love so great that we can be called His daughters because He sought us out. He redeemed us with His great power.  Let’s set about being the women who Fear the Lord. It is all about what’s inside that counts. Who rules your heart?

in His love,

Mrs A

Jesus will reign forever and ever. I want to encourage you to seek Him this weekend ..see Him with your heart’s eye on the throne of Grace. He alone rules and reigns and He is above all things. He created the universe yet He lives in our hearts.

Dear Ones, It’s time for Weekend Worship!

I was thinking, as I was going for the video, how sad is it if we only worship on the weekend! I find  that life is full of His abundance joy when I spend more time in worship. So, please do not hesitate to only worship on Sundays.Living a life of worship is fulfilling, complete with purpose for we are created to worship Him alone.

Paul Writes in 1 Corinthians, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31, ESV)  Every little chore, every little thought, we are called to do all to His glory. With Him in mind.

How Big is Your God?

Do you have Him in a box? Do you only worship on Sundays? Is spending time alone with Him in the secret place something on a to do list? Hey, we have all been there from time to time. We are all guilty of this. Have you taken time to really a realistic picture of His grandeur?  Take a moment to watch this video. It is by Francis Chan.

 

 

He is Worthy of our Worship this Weekend and Everyday!

He is so big! He is beyond our understanding and He loves you! He is worthy of our Worship!  We are called to join with the angels of heaven to sing Holy Holy Holy is the Lamb! He is Worthy of our Praise! And this Grand Majestic God has loved us since before the foundations of the world. He came to the earth. humbled as a man, took on our sins and paid our debt on the cross. He rose again on the third day and won the victory over sin and death so we could choose to worship Him this weekend. Be blessed in weekend worship!

 

I pray you enjoy this video
