Father, I Give You Thanks

There are times
When I’m so filled with angst
Times when I
really don’t “feel” like giving thanks.

But I can’t help it.
Father, I give You Thanks.

There are times
When I’ve felt like giving up
Times when saying “Thanks”
Just doesn’t seem like enough.

But I can’t help it.
Father I give You Thanks.

No matter my circumstance
No matter my pain
Father I will Thank You
Through the sunshine and rain.

When my heart is overwhelmed
or rather filled with joy
I will forever thank You Father
Praising You I enjoy.

I love You Father God
And I give You all my praise
You deserve glory and honor
And to You my hands I raise.

You are such an awesome wonder
So much so I can’t explain
You are such a Mighty God
Praise from my heart shall remain.

What a mighty God
Awesome God
Loving God
Healing God
Forgiving God
Saving God
Delivering God
Sanctifying God
Merciful God
Grace-giving God
Patient God

You Deserve All my praise and more!
I praise You, my God, my all.

Thanksgiving: A Day or A Daily Attitude?

As I sit and ponder the manifold things which I must do to prepare for this “day” of Thanksgiving, I couldn’t help but think, “Does being thankful begin on November 27th (or whatever the 4th Thursday of November is) and end on November 28 (or whenever the last Friday of November is)? 

My answer is this: I am thankful EVERY DAY that God allows me to live. I am thankful that I have what Jesus talked about in Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”

Yes, I have food, drink, and clothes, thank You Jesus. I am thankful that I have a home to live in because in 2009, my husband and I were living from motel to motel. We’ve been living here for almost 4 years.

I am also thankful that God has been our provider, without fail. Through lack and struggle, God has always provided.

I am thankful for being married to the same man for 15 years (November 4). I am thankful because even though it seemed as if our marriage was doomed in the earlier years, we are still here…..Stronger than before! Why/ Because we changed our attitudes and we’re thankful. See, in our marriage, what we THOUGHT was bad, could have been worse. What we took for granted, could have been taken, but GOD, in His infinite wisdom, knew that we would, with His help, overcome every weapon that was formed against our union. For that I am thankful.

I am thankful today to be alive. I have a medical condition that can take a turn for the worse at any moment, but I am thankful to be able to still be above ground, enjoying life, and experiencing new life.

When I look at the sky, I think about Jesus coming through, just behind the angels who will be blowing the trumpet announcing His coming. I’m thankful – EVERY DAY!

When I feel the wind blow, I can’t see it to know where it goes, but I am thankful because it reminds me of the Holy Spirit.

When I see the sun shining, I think about THEE SON of God.….who shed His precious blood for me…..I am thankful.

When I think of my children….how God allowed them to form in my womb….what an awesome experience (one that our male counterparts can never experience…lol), I am thankful - EVERY DAY!

When I reminisce about how God kept me and my loved ones from dangers seen and unseen, known and unknown, I am thankful – EVERY DAY!

So, while Thanksgiving day is the day when most will stop to give thanks, let’s make it a practice and a lifestyle to give God thanks EVERY DAY!

Discussing My Book: An Attitude of Love: The Ways of A Godly Wife (on blogtalkradio)

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/out-of-a-pure-heart-ministries-evangel…

Are you married? Do you truly understand the role of a godly wife?

Are you thinking about marriage? Do you really understand the role you are undertaking as a wife, let alone a “godly wife”?

Are you married, but seriously thinking about ending it because your husband won’t line up and be the head of the wife as he is called in the Bible?

Wife, do you see all of the BAD things in your husband, but don’t consider that it may be YOU who needs an adjustment in the “attitude” department?

Have you prayed and prayed for your spouse but continue to see no changes and feel like “What’s the point”?
Do you find yourself constantly saying “I didn’t sign up for this mess”?
If you see yourself in any of the above scenarios, then this broadcast is for you. If you know someone who is currently feeling like the above scenarios, then invite them to the broadcast.

My New E-Book Is Out

Hello everyone. I haven’t been posting much lately because I have been trying to write TWO books simultaneously. I am pleased to announce that the E-Book is done and is available on Amazon.com. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MMJQ5VA 

The title of my new E-Book is “An Attitude of Love: The Ways of A Godly Wife”. It is an updated/revised version of the book I wrote in 2006 entitled: An Attitude of Love: Submitting to My husband.

Here is a little synopsis:

An Attitude of Love: The Ways of A Godly Wife.


 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
This book gives a very honest account of how I transformed from a monster wife to a Godly wife. I share my journey of abuse (physical, mental and emotional), rejection, and how badly I treated my husband after he had a major life-altering situation come upon him.
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
I believe this E-book can be a great tool to use for women who are considering marriage, are married or who may be considering divorce.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Some women don’t respect their husbands as the head of the wife because they have had to be the head of the family.
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Some women, if they make more money than the man, thinks she is the head of the man.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Then there are some who won’t submit to the headship of the husband because the husband is not walking in his role as the head. But is that a reason to disrespect his God-given place in the family?
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
These and other important points are discussed in this E-Book. 

I would love it if you could go to Amazon.com and “Peek Inside” and then if you like it, purchase your own copy.
In the next few weeks, the paperback version will be out!

 

 

The Challenge Games- IT’S TIME TO PRAY

As a mother, I find it disturbing that the youth are coming up with some crazy challenges for one another. Here are a few examples:

  1. The “Set Yourself on Fire” challenge: Pour alcohol on you and set yourself on fire
  2. The “Pass-out” challenge: Take 20 deep breaths, then inhale and hold your breath. While you are holding your breath, someone pushes hard in your chest until you pass out
  3. The “Condom” challenge: Unwrap a condom, stretch it out, and then stick the closed end up one of your nostrils and then inhale it until you feel it coming down your throat. Once you feel it in your throat, proceed to pull it out of your mouth. (in through your nose and out through your mouth)
  4. The “Set a Potato Chip on Fire” challenge: Set a chip on fire and eat it while it is still burning
  5. The “Pour Boiling Water On Somebody” challenge: Boil a pot of water and pour it on the victim of your choice.

I don’t know how many more challenges like these are out there, but it is alarming what our youth are doing for a few laughs or for popularity. It is more than disturbing to see some of the youth who are participating in these challenges, actually get hurt or suffer some type of adverse outcome.

I believe NOW is the time to pray for our youth like never before. They are being influenced more and more to do things that could prove to be detrimental to their health – up to and including death.

I assume that the enemy was not satisfied with tempting children with drugs and sex. He has now raised the bar and our children are falling for it hook, line and sinker. We know that those who do not have the mind of Christ are slaves to sin, but those of us who do have the mind of Christ, ought to be standing in the gap for them…..praying…..interceding……and making sincere requests to God on their behalf.

Many of these children who are participating in these challenges are, for the most part, left unattended for various reasons. Many of the youth participating are old enough to know better but they are giving in to peer pressure. I actually saw a video of two female youth participating in the Pass-out challenge. One female did not want to do it, but her friend convinced her to do it and when she did, she passed out completely, to the point that her friend who convinced her, must have thought she was dead, because she ran away. She didn’t even try to help her friend.

Saints, brothers and sisters, let’s pray for our youth. Our youth are being controlled by the god of this world. Let’s pray and ask God to draw the youth to HIMSELF. Let’s bombard the throne of GOD and ask HIM to keep our youth from the evil one. I understand peer pressure. It’s not something new, but the stakes are higher now. Satan is determined to destroy our youth, one way or another, but we can PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. WE CAN TALK TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND ASK HIM TO SEND MINISTERING SPIRITS TO OUR YOUTH….AND OPEN THEIR EARS SO THAT THEY CAN HEAR GOD CALLING THEM.

IT’S TIME TO PRAY!

Why Can’t We All Worship Together ~ July 21. 2014

Yesterday I had a talk with a childhood friend as we were waiting for a gospel concert to start. It went like this:

Her: “I went to church today”.

Me: That’s good. Why didn’t you call me. I might have gone. Where did you go?

Her: “I went to so and so A.M.E. Church”

Me: Oh. Then I’m glad you didn’t call because I can’t do A.M.E.

Her: “Why?”

Me: Because I don’t like the way they have service. I’ll never be A.M.E.

Her: “What’s the difference? Can’t you worship God anywhere, at any church?”

Me: (looking kind of dumb) Yes, I guess, but I just don’t like their style. I used to be COGIC (Church of God In Christ) and they are completely different.

Her: “Ok. You gotta go where you feel comfortable”.

After we finished that part of the conversation, I felt really bad and then I knew what I was going to write about today. Why CAN’T We All Worship Together?

I often say this: “Heaven is NOT segregated. There will be no A.M.E., COGIC, PAW, BAPTIST, SOUTHERN BAPTIST, AME ZION, CATHOLIC, JEWISH, NON-DENOMINATIONAL (which, sadly, has become a denomination), etc. There will be no segregation based on religious preference, race/creed/color preference, gender preference, or age”.

I have not read anywhere in the Bible where it tells me that heaven nor the New Jerusalem will be segregated. There will be LOVE ~ PURE LOVE of YAHWEH GOD. ALL WILL WORSHIP HIM WITHOUT CHECKING TO SEE WHAT DENOMINATION IS PREDOMINATE BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NONE.

I, like the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., have a dream:

I have a dream, that before our Savior Yahshua (Jesus) comes back for the CHURCH, that the body of CHRIST will come together in UNITY to Worship the True and Living God – YAHWEH!
I have a dream, that denominational borders/barriers will be torn down and we will be on ONE ACCORD like they were in the Book of Acts (chapters 1-2). See, for when they were on one accord in one place, the Holy Ghost came and filled them. They spoke the same thing, waited for the same thing (Holy Ghost)……and THEN They received POWER! Glory to God.
I have a dream, that racial divides will be destroyed so that ALL PEOPLE, of every nation on this earth, WILL COME TOGETHER AND LIFT UP THE NAME OF YAHSHUA!
I have a dream, 
 that we will come together on one accord and SOULS WILL BE SAVED, PEOPLE WILL BE HEALED, PEOPLE WILL BE DELIVERED FROM ADDICTIONS AND STRONGHOLDS! Oh glory to Yahweh God!!! I have a dream.

So I wrote this post because I believe in those dreams I posted above. I am going to change MY thinking about denominational division and become an AGENT OF UNITY…..HALLELUJAH!!!!

WILL YOU JOIN ME? WILL YOU HELP ME? I’M COUNTING ON YOU!

PEACE, JOY, LOVE AND BLESSINGS!

“If You Be A Child Of God…..”

In Matthew 4:1-11, we read about a conversation between Jesus, the Son of God, and the Tempter , the devil, satan, after  Jesus had been fasting in the wilderness 40 days and 40 nights and was hungry..

Let’s see the conversation:

Matthew 4:1-11King James Version (KJV)

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

What I want to point out is this, the tempter, satan, the devil, said to Jesus, twice “If thou be the Son of God…..” It appears to me that satan was trying to get Jesus to doubt who HE (Jesus) was. He, the devil, satan, the tempter, knew who Jesus was or he would have never said, “If thou be the Son of God.” But the glory of the story is this:
JESUS 
KNEW
HE
WAS
THE
SON OF GOD.
He had NO DOUBT about WHO HE WAS and WHOSE He was. That tempter, devil, satan, could not make Jesus doubt himself. He was firm in who He was. 

We see that satan, in the above examples tried to make Jesus doubt who HE was and did it by using portions of the Word. However, Jesus knew who He was. He knew He was the Bread of Life. He knew His Father owned cattle on a thousand hills. Jesus knew that he was not to temp God by jumpimg off of that high pinacle. 

The point of this blog is to remind us that we need to know who we are  and whose we are. Satan, just like he did Eve in the garden of Eden, tried to bring doubt. Eve gave in but Jesus didn’t. Jesus was firm in His belief of who He was, who He was to worship, and to not have to prove who He was by changing stones to bread, Jesus was confident in who he was. He didn’t have the lust of the eye, nor the lust of the flesh, nor the pride of life operating in Him, thus satan’s temptations failed with Jesus. 

Poor Eve. She wanted what sounded good. She had everything she needed, but check this out:

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die and the serpent said unto the woman, “ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil”. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to makeone wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:1-6

Eve KNEW what God had commanded but the lust of her eyes, the lust of her flesh and the pride of life kicked in and caused her and her husband to be banished from the Garden of Eden and die….spiritually……separated from God. Eve did not stand her ground and neither did her husband, Adam, and as a result, the tempter was successful at getting Adam and Eve to disobey and therefore be punished, banished, and separated from their creator.

Is your relationship with God tight enough that when the tempter, satan, the devil comes, you will know God’s voice vs. satan’s voice? 

Do you KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN GOD? 

If you be a child of God………..You ARE seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. ~ EPHESIANS 2:4-7

If you be a child of God………..You ARE an HEIR of GOD and a JOINT HEIR with Jesus ~ rOMANS 8;17

If you be a child of God………..You ARE a NEW CREATURE in Christ Jesus. Old things are passed away and all things are made new.
2 Corinthians 5:17

If you be a child of God……….You ARE saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost and POWER.

If you be a child of God, You Are Healed by Jesus Stripes……Come on now and say Hallelujah!
Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24 and Psalm 103

So, when the devil, the tempter, satan comes to you with “IF YOU BE A CHILD OF GOD”, Just let him know that it is WRITTEN and quote those verses above.

Somebody ought to shout “GLORY” because you are A Child Of The Most High God!!!
