What's Your Favorite

Do you have a favorite bible story/account?  I LOVE the story of Adam and Eve...ever since childhood. My mother sometimes reminds me that when I was younger during our devotion times, I always wanted to hear Adam and Eve story. The only way she could satisfy me and maintain her peace from not having to repeat the same story over and over again was to tell me another bible story and randomly interject Adam and Eve in it.  I think that is so funny! 

Any way, as I am much older now there is just something about the Creation story that warms my heart.  Pure perfection in the Man and Woman that God designed. Can you imagine the perfect beauty that surrounded them in that garden, Eden.  I tried to imagine what it mush have been like but I can't.  That's why I can't wait to get to heaven to talk with them and get first hand account of what it was like.  I can't wait to get to heaven so that I can experience perfect creation as God promises to create a new heaven and a new ear…

Is He?

I have this guy friend that I really like admire a lot.  He is ambitious, God fearing, good looking, well mannered, working on PhD in the Medical field full time and works every opportunity he gets to earn $$. Although I know that no one is "Perfect" he exudes what I would consider "perfect."  I've met his family and friends, attended an event or two per his invitation and so forth. 

The only thing is that I am always calling or reaching out to him to touch bases.  He is always busy with school and/or work.  Could it be that He's just not that into me or is he gay.  I question this because, you I've never seen or heard him talk about a girl or any special female in his life, he doesn't try to talk me up (I considered that to be the Christian principles or respect).  He is so fine, goal oriented, respectful, but help me understand.....what could it be?  I can't stand it.  I want to ask him but I don't want to risk our pure/innocent friendship…

True Worship

What does worship mean to you?  I have been pondering this question for the past few days and I am convicted that Worship is not a feeling, its not an occasion but it is a lifestyle. 

I am convinced that we Worship God when our choices honor Him, when we submit to His will, when we make time to commune with Him during each day..... When we humble ourselves in challenging situations, when we are able to forgive those who hurt us and move on and when we are able to serve others.  This is what True Worship means to me. 

Dear God It is my desire to Worship you in every aspect of my life.  Please forgive me where I have failed and help me to always be mindful that True Worship is the reason for my existence;  You created me for your good pleasure and I surrender all to you today. In Jesus Name.

Lord Your Holy

My God is truly a deliverer.  I just want to say Thank You! My Heart Cry's Thank YOU UUU

Song By Helen Baylor: Lord Your Holy

Wonderful, Glorious, Holy, and Righteous, Victorious, Conqueror, Triumphant and Mighty
Healer, Deliverer, Shield and Defense; Strong Tower and My Best Friend
He's Omnipotent, Omnipresent Soon Coming King
Alpha, Omega, Lord of everything...............Holy, holy, holy is Your Name

There's not enough words that I can say
To tell you how much I appreciate
All the wonderful things You've given me
Your loving kindness
Your tender mercies
It's my desire to praise You
And tell you how much I love You
You're worthy of all the honor
Lord You're worthy of all the praise

Humility

How would you define humility?  How do you demonstrate humility in various aspects of your life?  I know for me it isn't an easy thing.  But I continue to stretch out to God for his strength and to be clothed in His righteousness so that I can truly demonstrate the fruits of the spirit not just when I am in a comfortable situation/circumstances but when I am challenged, pushed and feeling frustrated.

Can't Take the Drama

My post today is on such a sensitive topic to me.  I am an only child to a single parent.  Mother has provided me with the best of everything.  She has taught me not only by verbal dictates but most importantly by physically demonstrating the qualities of living virtuously and putting faith into action.  I have learned a lot from my mother and I am so happy that she has brought me up in the nurture and admonition of our Lord, and taught me the value of education(high expectations of academic achievement).  The problem I have is that my mother gets so easily offended and always seems to blow things out of proportion when we have disagreements and when she feels I have offended her.  I can understand being ticked off but why all the drama?  I mean I am so tired of all the emotional stuff that I have now become so withdrawn and emotionless when we have these moments. 

Am I the only one with such issues?  Other than this once in a while times. We live so peaceably like inseparable sisters…

Sunshine

I just adore the sun.  Today is such a lovely day, actually we have been having pretty sunny days this week.  It warms my soul.  I really really wish the summer would linger like how the winter does.  It always seems like as soon as its time for fall/winter those seasons don't hesitate but when it's time for the Spring/Summer the Winter season seems to always want to prolong it's stay, but never the reverse.   Any way, the warm sun makes me want to sing this hymn 

There is sunshine in my soul today,
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky,
For Jesus is my Light.

Refrain O there’s sunshine, blessed sunshine,
When the peaceful, happy moments roll;
When Jesus shows His smiling face,
There is sunshine in the soul. There is music in my soul today,
A carol to my King,
And Jesus, listening, can hear
The songs I cannot sing.

Refrain There is springtime in my soul today,
For, when the Lord is near,
The dove of peace sings in my heart,
The flowers of grace appear.

Refrain Th…

I'ts just so coincidental that I was going to write a blog on who will be the first to officially follow me and to my surprize.  Anyway, welcome to you and all the others who will "Follow me" in the future!

I am feeling a little sad that I did not spen quality time with God this weekend.  But I will not allow any guilt over  my lack of not spending time with Him to seperate me from approaching my father.  I just wan't my life to be a complete sacrifice of praise.
