Today I open my email and have a email from a box store promoting a stuffed toy that will bring your child joy. Below is says don’t you want to bring them joy. First as a Christ follower my head and heart screams NO! Joy does not come from a toy it’s from within. The joy you know from Christ is amazing and it’s a gift. But ultimately that choice is yours. You can choose to believe and follow. You yourself have many choices to make not all are easy. I lead a few classes on this with food and God. Hence why I created the page called “the healthy homemaker” . Choices are not always easy and choosing to follow Jesus not consumerism in a day where people are afraid to say merry Christmas can be done but you must stand firm in your beliefs. Secondly I don’t want or need the guilt about their happiness cause ultimately that’s their choice. They can choose joy, they can choose to rise above any circumstance and all I can do is be a living role model. Third to the “box store” all those gifts that provide a temporary joy will end up in the recycling bin and knowing Jesus will be eternal. Sorry for my rant. Knowing Jesus is a choice .Loving Jesus another and following another. It’s the season. Do you miss the good old days? I do. Merry CHRISTmas

Always Rejoicing “Rejoice evermore.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16) Most people think that John 11:35 (“Jesus wept”) is the shortest verse in the Bible, but our text is actually even shorter in the original Greek. In one sense, these two two-word verses complement each other—because Jesus wept, we can rejoice evermore. Christ died that we might live. […]

Strength in the Promises of the Lord
Cultivate God Seed in YOU!
It’s time to seek the Lord!
When he comes, he will rain righteousness on you.
"God is breaking new ground in me. He is helping me cultivate my heart to receive His plans and His purposes. As I seek Him, I am growing. It is not me waiting upon the Lord, but rather, the Lord waiting upon me. I must grow into His purpose. I must grow into His call. His good plans for me are so beautiful and great that I could never fulfill them in my seed form. So, I say, Lord be it unto me according to your purpose. I give up my seed and allow your transformation. I accept this dark time as my place to germinate in your Holy Spirit. I die to my world(my way of doing and thinking) even as you are rooting me and drawing me forth. I know what you are doing is great! I know that spring is here and it is time to bloom."
