Church –


Oh did I have a splendid time on today in regards to fellowship at my place of worship! It is funny to me because I am so used to being in church EACH SERVICE for at least 3 hours. My son and I got home a little after 11 am this morning and it threw me off until at least 4 pm – SERIOUSLY!

I am so grateful for at least “this season” I am somewhere I am enjoying – learning new things about myself and discovering the Love of Christ in such a new and beautiful way –

The worship experience is so FREE that it makes me feel as if I am indeed floating on the promises of God Himself! It is different but good – new but old – loud but angelic – busy but therapuetic – short but long and I am happy as ever.

A HUGE PERK for me is that my 11 1/2 year old son really likes it as well – WHEW- So grateful

Random About “Favor” –

To favor means to give special regard to; to treat with goodwill; to show exceptional kindness to someone. Sometimes, it means to show extra kindness in comparison to the treatment of others; that is, preferential treatment. Deuteronomy 28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
See All… warns of judgment by a “nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young.” Though it is natural for us to favor the young in times of affliction or judgment, this nation will not give such favor.

Esther received royal favor above all the other virgins (Esther 2:17And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.. It is from this use of favor that we get the word, favorite. The greatest favors are shown to the favorite.

However, favor is not always used in a comparative way toward others. It sometimes simply means that the one favored is shown kindness and treated with a generosity and goodwill far beyond what would normally be expected. This is generally the favor that we receive from the Lord. We are treated much better than we could expect. Of course, every believer is favored to some degree. Therefore, we must understand God’s favor in degrees. The more we please God, the more we will be favored by Him. Also, it is important not to think of this favor in material or worldly terms. God’s favor most likely will be given in spiritual blessings more than in material blessings.

Happiness — it’s what we all strive to find and keep, even when it’s as elusive as ever. Nobody is happy all the time, but some people are definitely more fulfilled than others. Studies reveal that happiness has little to do with material goods or high achievement; it boils down to your outlook on life, the quality of your relationships, and basic amenities like good governance and community resources.

Look at the glass half-full instead of half-empty.  Now you have the opportunity to find a better one! Adjust your mentality so that, in everything that happens to you, there’s some kernel of good.

Think of your current situation (however hard it may be) and then think of how much harder some other people have it. Just be happy that you are not in that worse situation. Learn to enjoy your life!

Sleeping With An Enemy –


This made me think of Samson and Delilah in the bible… She was admiring his beauty and strength BEFORE she took his power as he slept “powerless”…..

For the record….sleeping with the enemy TO ME just symbolized going to bed with sin in your heart…..your mind…your spirit…your body etc…

I am sure we have all had experiences when we make wrong choices ON PURPOSE!!!!!! Then have the nerve to ask The Lord…our friends….our family and even ourselves- What Happened!! No…I am not talking about ANYTHING sexual…we make wrong choices over tons of things everyday but Samson and Delilah just made an EASY “what NOT” to do scenario!

The choices that we make and the chances that we take can cause us to RISE OR FALL…. Samson’s power was restored by the Lord – and it was a lesson learned!

Politics

2012 and the white house


1. Osama Bin Laden…check 2. Unemployment rate 8.5%…check. 3. 1.6 million jobs created with no GOP help…check 4. 22 months of job and economic growth with no help…check 5. Ended war in Iraq …check

 6. DADT repeal…check 7. Not one tax hike in 3 years….check 8. Brought out of RACISM in the GOP……check 9. Still carry 80% of the black vote…check 10. Same wife for 15 years with NO marital affairs…check 11. Can flat out sing…check (ha!) 12. Save auto industry and 1.5 million jobs…check

13. Assisted in ousting Ghaddafi…check 14. Only active President to receive Nobel Peace prize while in office…check 15. Mortgage modification to prevent home owners from losing their home…check 16. STILL fighting for middle class families…check 17. Reform affordable healthcare…. check

Even if you dont follow politics these are the things that the CURRENT president has done and have been doing over his stressful term in the White House. I HAVE NOT BEEN A PRESIDENT OBAMA supporter HOWEVER…. I certainly give credit where credit is due!

Despite what the GOP would have you believe the President has been doing these things and more without the help of most of them.

The GOP in the era of Martin Luther King Jr was not like this…. for even at that time Martin Luter King Jr. was a REPUBLICAN!
