Take a look around in wonder
Take a look around in wonder

This morning as I listen to the thunder's roar through the heavens, I was reminded of God's magnificent glory.

His power is never ending. He is the creator of all the heavens and all the earth and deserves our praise and glory.

So, as we watch the rains fall from the sky and hear the thunder roar, look up and magnify our God.

He is the everlasting to everlasting. He is the great amen and he is the king of all.

And Lord God, as we watch you replenish the earth we are reminded of just how amazing, spectacular and powerful you truly are. We love you and we praise you Lord God. To you be the glory forever and ever amen.
He We Go!
He We Go!
Well, here we go back in the saddle again. The kids are back in school and it's time to get down to business. Out with the old and in with the new.

It's a new year filled with great possibilities. God has so many things in store for each one of us. So, I want to encourage you to listen to the Holy Spirit as he speaks in your life. His words line up directly with the Bible. Therefore, it is so important that we know what the word says so that we will not be deceived. Satan roars around like a lion waiting to see who he can devour. We must always be aware of everything going on around us.

Making a commitment for daily Bible study will change your entire life. When we are in sync with God, we start to understand and to hear his voice. And isn't that what everyone of us want… Clarity. So open the word, open your ears and get ready for an amazing year.

This was my face this morning while I was taking a walk. I was enjoying my private time alone and talking to God. Then, I asked got a question. But, the moment I asked the question, I laughed to myself and said how would God show me an answer while I'm out here walking. There was no one around and nothing much except for the trees in the water.

So, just as I was finishing my little thought in my head, I looked out on the water to my right and what did I see? But a pelican nodding his beak up and down enthusiastically. I then looked up into the heavens and smiled. Just when we think God can't answer us, he does.

God promises us that he will always hear an answer our prayers. So what are you praying for today? Seek God and you will find.
Happy New Year…. what do I need to change?
Happy New Year…. what do I need to change?

Happy new year! This year we need to make a promise to God and a promise to ourselves that we will listen to his voice. I know, I know we already know how to solve the problem by ourselves, and God will allow you. But, if there’s one thing that I have learned for sure, it is that God knows so much better than I do. Gods answer is always the best answer for me. It is always the perfect timing, place and situation. We spend so much time and energy trying to please other people, and that is wonderful, but God thinks you are important to. And in the midst of our chaos to give time to ourselves. What makes you happy? Are you doing what makes you happy? If you aren’t, it’s time to start. So, while New Year’s resolutions are fantastic, I want you to reach deep inside of yourself and think of a new life resolution. God created you for good and mighty things. You were not created to be meek and meager and to live a life filled with misery and sorrow. We are to be filled with the Holy Spirit and filled with unsurpassable joy. So, once again, what makes you happy? Quit waiting for somebody else to make you happy and do it for yourself!

A dear friend of mine told me the other day that God is not the author of confusion. Of course I know that this is in the Bible, but how quickly we forget the words set of been spoken to us by the prophets. So sometimes God just have to send a friend to remind us.
So, if you have thoughts that are spinning wildly around in your head, just stop. Think about what you were thinking about. God tells us to think about things that are pure and everlasting.
We tend to get ourselves so tied up in the moment. We think about everything going on in our lives and our heads just spinning around in circles.
Well, I’m here to tell you that you can drive yourself crazy. So take a minute and just remind yourself where the mind goes the man follows.
We spend all this time making sure that we look beautiful on the outside, but how much time are we spending on the inside and on our mind?
Remember, that which we put time into is what we become. So train yourself to think about what you were thinking about and be wise enough to recognize wrong and right thoughts. And then make sure you were shutting away the confusion. You can turn your thoughts around which will in turn change your life.
Live everyday for God

This morning during family Bible study, we discussed the importance of our behaviors matching up to who we say we are. One of the number one complaint of people is hypocrisy amongst Christians. So my question for you is, “are you a hypocrite?” When people think of you or speak of you, what do they say?  Hmmm, this is something we all need to contemplate. Well, I don’t know about you but I want to be a better person. I want to live each day striving to the better within myself and better towards other people. I want to learn to love more, forgive more and judge less. There way too many times in my life where I know I have been a hypocrite. I know I have lived in complete defiance to God’s word. I know that I have not been the person I was created to be. I know you may be saying, Heather quit being so hard on yourself. But if I’m not hard on myself, who will be? The Bible tells us to recognize our sins, to admit them to God and to turn from them. Many times we commit the same sins over and over again, but today is the day and now is the time to turn over a new leaf. Let’s do away with hypocrisy and begin to let our lives shine with Christ.

Just a Moment in Time
Just a Moment in Time

Do you ever just have one of those days where you just feel plain all old?

Well lately, it's all I seem to notice when I look in the mirror. I see wrinkles and bags and black circles under my eyes.

Our body is here on this earth our subject to aging do to send. By the way just today there was a link talking about how some scientist were able to link back evolution to Adam and eve. Amazing.

Anyways, I am so glad that our destiny is eternal. God tells us that he is going to give us new bodies that are free of and sighing and groaning. There will be no more sickness and no more disease. Hallelujah!

So, if you're ever having a down in the dumps day, remember God's amazing promise to us and look up and smile big. He has an amazing eternity in store for you and me. That hot mess in the mirror is only for a moment.
Embrace the differences
Embrace the differences
Are you willing to look at other people's shortcomings and forgive them? Or are you so proud that you only recognize faults and others and never realize that you yourself have faults as well?

We have to be willing to love each other how we are. If we spend our lives comparing one person to another person, we will never have fellowship with anyone.

Each person is unique and special. God did not create each and everyone of us to be the same in every way shape and form. He made you and he made me and every single person exactly how he wanted them to be.

So quit looking and judging just because someone doesn't look, think or act like you. It's OK to be different!
Not my fault
Not my fault
Do you find that things are always someone else's fault and never your own?

It reminds me of a multitude of times on my daughter has knocked things over and said, "it wasn't me".

But, each one of us has done this at one time or another. Or quick to jump to conclusions I'm quick to say things, and then we step back and look and realize 0MG maybe I should have not said or done that.

Well, I've done this on a multitude of occasions, Space most recently during my vacation to Key West and Cozumel. But we can't spend our lives beating ourselves up just because we did something wrong or said something wrong. We just have to suck it up buttercup and move on.

Dwelling on the past is never good for anyone. But we can take the time to recognize what we have or have not done and do our best to remedy the situation.

Thank goodness we have Jesus to cover our faults and to lead us and guide us along his straight and narrow path.

Sometimes that path can get slippery and you aren't sure which way to turn. But if the path that you were taking is leading you to question if what you were doing or saying is correct or wrong, you know the answer...back up and go the right way. and make certain that you take responsibility for your own actions.
