My hearts desire was to plant a garden this summer, however the rabbits and deer are in control of my back yard. I assumed they would eat everything. Therefore, I planted seeds in a storage container. Being the novice farmer, I dropped the the seeds in the container and forgot about them. We have been getting lots of rain. One evening after a very hard rain, I stepped outside to find the seeds floating on top of the dirt.I thought my little garden was done. As you know, the sun came out and dried up the rain! A few days later, life was seen thriving in the container. Through days of hard rain, the garden is thriving.God didn't allow them to drown. I begin to think about life in general.The rain, helps us grow. No matter how hard the storm is, we can/will survive. God is providing the plants with everything needed. We are his children. So, don't give up, your head is above the water. Come on Praise God for the Rain!
Have you been working on your heart's desire for some time now? Wait on God. His ways are not like our ways, his thoughts are not like our thoughts. He is God alone. So whatever you are praying for, Wait on God. Whatever you are trying to accomplish in life, Wait on God.Put on your armor of Praise and continue on your journey. God's Time is Always On Time.
If you believe you CAN....YOU CAN If you believe you CAN'T...YOU CAN'T THE POWER IS IN WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE
Reflecting on 2016! Yes, I've had some good days, some hills to climb, ran through some storms walked trough the valley, but through it all , It's all 'good.No matter what you go through, It's worthy of a praise.
Are you tired of doing the same thing over and over again? Have you reached the ultimate level of what use to be your passion? I'm feeling you. To God be the glory for all he has done and all he is doing! We don't understand the reason or his purpose some times but we must trust him. Yep, it's time for me to come out of my comfort zone. It's time for me to walk on egg shells again. Walk with blind folds on. God's moving in my life. He's probably working in your life also. It's a wonderful feeling! For all of you who are hearing God's voice and feeling him move in your life... Relax... let's take this journey one day at a time and Rejoice! Come out of your comfort zone! I'm Coming Out!!
I pray that you experience the happiest year ever in 2016! Believe without a doubt, all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us!
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer, and petition,with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (NIV)
After God responds to our prayers, petitions, and requests, how do we show gratitude? Daily, weekly, monthly?
We should fell our hearts with thanksgiving everyday. Show our gratitude daily.
Psalm 118: Give thanks to The Lord,for he is good; his love endures forever. (NIV)
I hope everyone is accepting life as it is. To God be the glory for all things.
Last night I was reading an article about a young lady who made bad decisions as a young girl. It all caught up with and she paid her time. Following her release her family disappointed her. Without sharing the entire story, she lost faith in everyone. God included. There was a lot to learn for the story.
It's not God's plan to have us suffer but we do have to endure hardships. Our family members may hurt our feelings, outsiders will hurt our feelings, we will suffer hardships but we must draw on the faith within. We must build our faith, pray, and seek council from God. He is there all the time.
The rain is pouring down in my life but I can't give up. My faith is strengthening because God said he want put more on us then we can bare.
The young lady gave up everything. Please believe that what we endure is only a test . God speaks life and that does not include taking your life. Never will he speak to us and say it's over ,you have endured enough. Come home and take your rest. BAM.
God speaks LIFE
Love you all! Pamela Harper-Bowman
Good Morning Everyone!
Oh what a beautiful morning it is in deed! I was listening to a sermon of one of my former Pastors earlier. Boy did it hit me good. Overall he was simply saying "check yourself before you wreck yourself".
So I'm up inventorying my overall lifestyle. I'm most concerned about my spiritual life. I just can't imagine not living with Jesus, and receiving all the benefits he has promised. I'm nervous just thinking about falling short of the glory of God!
Hey friends let's get it together. Prepare for receiving your benefits. As my song plainly says it Jesus is coming "SOON".
Love you all!
Born for us all, Died for us all, Rose for us all, Lives for us all, For it all we must love him with ALL our heart! Thank you JESUS for your unconditional LOVE!
