Randomness and that’s Ok …

So, I got my new laptop today and thought I would take it for a blogging spin. 

I am not a technology expert but I can say I am not too fond of this Windows 8. My husband tells me it’s because I have to get used to it .. but until then my mind is made up. I did however, manage to set up my Itunes account and that is only by the grace of God. 

On another note … of new things I have received these past few weeks that I do actually enjoy is our new kitten, Sophia! She is a complete joy and she is 9 weeks old. We got her when she was 6 weeks only because her mother disowned her. 

So ,we are now new and very proud cat owners LOL. 

Our lovely Sophia.

Our lovely Sophia.

I can honestly say that Sophia is enjoying my new laptop than I am the moment and that is completely fine with me. .. at least I will get my money’s worth with her opening every application there is! 

That is all for now and this post is completely random and pointless ..

..and that’s OK. 

God Bless and Happy Blogging

Don’t Forget … You Are Free!!

I think as Christians the number one thing we forget is that we are free. We have been freed from sin, shame, condemnation, bondage, fear and depression. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ … we have to remember that he who the Son has set free is free indeed. We have to remember that those who are NOW in Christ are new creatures. So no longer shall we live stuck in the chains of bondage … no longer shall we live as a slave to our sins no longer shall we live to the demands of our sins when we no longer have to.. when we have been set free and when we are truly sons and daughters of Christ.  

 

We should no longer battle with fear, insecurities, doubt, worry, anger, depression when we have been set free from all of that.  We should no longer wrestle with those things that so easily beset us when we have been given the power and ability to war back. Its so simple… the word tells us to flee, to resist the devil …. Resist the temptations.

 

Let us put off the old man in this season and embrace the new creature we have become … for the perfect work God has begun in us He will complete it. He said “Greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world” may we embrace that on today. May we walk in what God has called us to walk in … may we grasp our heavenly identity today. And go forth in power and confidence.

 

We serve a great and mighty God … now lets act like it.


Happy Monday

Good Morning Family.  I pray you all had a great weekend!

It is Monday and it is yet another day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Another day of God’s grace and His mercy.

I came in this morning and had the Monday Morning Blues …. LOL …  but then I turned on Pandora cut on some praise and worship ( Juanita Bynum Station) and went to town.

So, saturate your atmosphere whether you be at home, in the office, in your cubicle or in the car … with praise and worship or the word of God. While I can not control others and their attitudes for today and I cannot control what they allow in their atmosphere …. I can control what I allow in mines!!

I’m choosing for this day life! I pray that your day be productive and fruitful and that God ministers to heart and spirit. I pray that he anoints you for todays task and that you remain aware and mindful of His kingdom and that He gets the glory out of your life on today and everyday!

Be Blessed and Happy Monday!


Happy Resurrection Day!

Happy Resurrection Day!!

I am happy today because this is the one day that everyone celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the one day that people who normally do not go to church on a regular basis, find themselves in attendance.

I am happy as on my Facebook page I am reading as some of my friends have now accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I am just plain happy and I rejoice in the fact that when He went down He took all my sins, all my shame and all my insecurities, fears and doubts, hurts and pain with him.

And when He rose – I rose with Him.

So once again I just wanted to say Happy Resurrection Day …. 

Let us celebrate His resurrection daily not just for one day out of the year but lets celebrate his life everyday.

Romans 6

Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ

1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.


New Season ..

I must admit … I LOVE BLOGGING.

It gives me the opportunity to just ramble and brain dump. Post my random thoughts, share concerns, talk about my family, talk about God, and to talk about things that other people really don’t find interesting. It gives me the opportunity to just be me. Although, I am like this without the blog and I still share my thoughts and my opinions and those crazy and un-interesting topics with others.  I am learning how pecuiliar I really am .. and I am learning to accept it. I honestly .. (I tell people this all the time … like literally all the time) I wish that I was more accepting of myself when I was younger. I wish that I knew what I know and am still learning about myself now. 

But I did not want to talk about that – that was completely random.

… I wanted to talk about how excited I am that spring is right around the corner and a few days we will be springing the time up and our days will be longer although we know they did that so that we could work longer hours but sorry for them that does not apply to me lol.  

But I am more excited about Spring. I have really like all four seasons but my favorite is spring time. I love it when it snows in the spring and then the snow melts away and everything is clean and fresh. The air is crisp with a little chill. Within a few weeks trees and flowers begin to bud .. birds are out bees come out to pollinate. People and animals come out from hiding. Everything is growing and blossoming.

Everything is just NEW.  The old things have passed away and everything has become new.

I am hoping and praying for a Spring in my spiritual life .. where every thing becomes new. The coldness of winter has gone and everything is in bloom and God is there to tend to my new budding flowers. Enjoying and embracing the opportunity to watch them bloom into something wonderful all the while being able to explore all the newness with gladness of heart.

Even while going through periods of rain …. you know at the end the rain only encourages growth. And if you are anything like me spring rain rarely hinders you.  Matter of fact you even enjoy a good spring rain that washes away all the impurities that winter can leave behind and that spring can sometimes bring.

So I am excited naturally as well as spiritually about the new season and I pray that you all are as well. Whether you may be spiritually in a spring, summer, winter or fall … embrace and make the most out of every season and find something you love, embrace it and learn to make the most of it.   

Cheers to a NEW SEASON ….   

                              


Welcome New Followers!!

This Blog is specifically for my new followers … I just want to say “Welcome”!

You guys have no idea how much this means to me … as corny as that may sound. I said in my first post “Hello World” that our lives our open books .. according to the word we are “living epistles read of all men” (makes you think, huh? “What are people reading in my book”). So with this oppurtunity, I will share all that I am learning and have learned and I share with the hope that it touches and inspires you to Live out Loud and reach to new unimaginable heights in Christ Jesus.

All of my blogs are open for discussion … I don’t have all the answers but God does and so does Google lol … ok, that was corny too.

I believe that all conversations should have meaning to them and it should challenge you to think bigger and to think outside of the box. Every conversation should add something to you .. never take away. So, I really do pray that these posts and our discussions will challenge us all the while edify and glorify God. Truth is … you will gorify something in your life … whether you realize it or not.

So if you have something you would like me to post about or you have a question send them my way … or you just like what I have to say  or you don’t send that my way too I just won’t post that … didn’t mean to put that. I am open to different point of views becasue we all have them and sometimes you have to agree to disagree.

Coming up in the near future I want to add a page for natural hair as that is the newest passion. I don’t know if you noticed in my “About Me” section in my lovely picture … I am Au’ Natural  .. No Additives No Preservatives! So for my natural  beauties no matter the race or hair type … this is for US!!

Anyway, Welcome Followers and Cheers to Happy Blogging!
