Chance...no- -Faith...YES!

Hey everyone!!!
Words of encouragement for today...
Let me remind you all of something we all too often forget about...its called FAITH! As we go about our day we forget about our faith and often just think something may have happened by "chance".  "Chance" doesn't exist for us....everything we do and receive happens because GOD planned it out that way.  When you are able to get a close parking space, GOD ordained that...thank HIM for it! When you have to park far away and you are frustrated...remember that GOD had a reason for you not being able to find a closer space.  Maybe HE has allowed you to have a better witnessing field while you are walking through the parking lot.  Nothing happens by chance, only by a perfect plan that our HEAVENLY FATHER has laid out for us.  All we have to do is to follow the LEADER! GOD is our LEADER! We must just trust HIM! I really wanted to encourage you to look at your day differently...instead of getting frustrated at those little problems we have, (which I know we all do!), remember that GOD has your life planned out and what happens, happens for a reason.  GOD is in control so let us thank HIM today and stay encouraged by HIS word!

Psalm 37:23- "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way."

Psalm 3:8

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are all having a fabulous week!!!
Would like to apologize for the color of the last post...I just clicked on a color and did not check to see what it looked like on my blog.  It was brought to my attention that it was unreadable because of the color of the text!! I have changed the color so go back and check it out!

An encouraging word for today..... Love the LORD with everything you have! Be thankful in everything and remember that the LORD is in control of your life! HE loves us!! A verse that I love is Psalm 3:8- "Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah." 
This verse reminds us that salvation comes from the LORD alone.  We cannot be freed from this world or sin unless we accept the LORD's free gift of salvation.  It is an easy gift to recieve--all we have to do is admit that we have sinned, believe that JESUS died on the cross and rose again and ask the LORD to come into our heart and save us!! Salvation lasts forever...once you have accepted CHRIST!!! The blessing of salvation is given to the people who believe and ask the LORD into their life.  And then the end of the verse says Selah...which means that we need to stop and think about what the verse really means.  Think about how special it is that the CREATOR of the world loves you and I enough to send HIS only SON to die for us!! How amazing!!!

Happy Resurrection weekend!

Hey Everyone!!!! Hope you are having a fabulous day in the LORD!
As Easter is so close and quickly approaching...I encourage you all to thank JESUS for the sacrifice HE made for you!!! HE died a horrible death worse than anything anyone could ever imagine for us! Wow! How amazing HE is to love us so much that HE would take every sin on HIMSELF so that we could spend eternal life with HIM! HE loves us so much! Are we really thankful enough for what GOD did for us?...HE died and suffered more than we will ever have too.  Do we thank HIM for rising again from the dead?! Think about it...we would not have hope except that GOD allowed HIM to rise from the dead! How marvelous-how wonderful! We have hope because HE is alive!!!!! HE is alive today! Wow!!! Allow HIM to have all of you!!!!!

Something GOD allowed me to think about the other day- "When your life feels like its falling apart, ask JESUS to pick up the pieces for you and HE will put you back together!"

Thank GOD today for what HE has done for us!!!!!

Matt. 28:6-10 - "HE is not here:for HE is risen, as HE said. Come, see the place where the LORD lay. And go quickly, and tell HIS disciples that HE is risen from the dead; and, behold, HE goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see HIM: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly form the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring HIS disciples word. And as they went to tell HIS disciples, behold, JESUS met them, saying, 'All hail'. And they came and held HIM by the feet, and worshipped HIM. Then said JESUS unto them, 'Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me'."
