Captivated By Love

Ladies!!! Oh an interesting cause to check out for sure in this video here that Sam Samy shares:

I find it interesting that the lion wants to stay where it finds love in relationship rather than step out into the world all alone. As you know, Sam, a person is never alone because Jesus is always with us as His people of faith!!! Oh that just makes me smile!!! As you also know, Sam, Father created us for relationship!!! I am reminded that it is always good news wherever He opens and closes doors in our lives to put us in the divine place for us to be together with divine purpose with Him working in us as His people of faith!!! 🙂 Lots to ponder about this video!!! I am reminded of this song here about being a new creation in faith in Jesus and the specialness of His love:

Thank you for the pondering again today, Sam!!! I’m sharing it!!!

Made the Grade

Blessed (happy) day to you, precious family!!! I smile in the peace of Father’s love for me today that rises me up above all cares of life!!! Oh when our Father smiles upon us, you just feel like you are on top of the world and we are!!! Our Father tells us this:

“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loves us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow–not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below–indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39 NLT

As I reflect upon my own past memories of being a school girl, I recall the pressure or anxiety I used to feel when I was about to receive my report card at the end of the year that told me if I had passed for the year and would be given the opportunity to enter the next grade and not have to remain where I was. It was always such a relief to know that I had qualified or was accepted into the next class. It gave me peace and relief. Today, my Father gives me that same kind of peace for which I am thankful to Him for when He tells us that through our faith in Christ that we are “qualified” or fitted for sharing in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. We have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness. We have made the highest grade!!! To that I say “Wooohooo!!!” That feels so good!!! My Father tells me that He desires that we all have that good feeling and peace and that is why He gave the Apostle Paul and now each of us the request to open the eyes of others, to school them and turn them from darkness to light, from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Jesus. We have been sanctified, meaning we have been passed on from the kingdom of darkness, have been freed from sin and death and are now set apart as a holy saint destined to inherit all of the riches of the Kingdom of Christ. Now that thought just makes my day!!! Isn’t it a great feeling to know we are qualified by the best?!! Celebrating with ya with His peace of mind as I step out into the day!!!

Individual Purpose

Purposeful day it is for everybody, ya’ll here!!! No matter who we are in life, we each have a  divine reason for being and whether we volunteer our time or are employed by someone or we are an employer of others, we each can in someway bring contribution to what our Father is wanting to accomplish here in bringing heaven on earth!!! Now how awesome is that for everyone to be included in the purpose of life together with Jesus!!! Oh it just makes me smile!!!

As I continue in sharing about the different generalized areas of ministry that each of us individually will typically step in and out of in the course of our lives, I want to share these thoughts today about being an employee and an employer. Our Father will speak to each of us as we have need to hear His voice. Even if we volunteer in life for someone or for our Father in heaven, some of these same principles can apply to all of us:

“If you are a hired employee, God desires for you to “obey your earthly masters (in righteousness) and do it not only when their eye is on you and to win their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:22-24). God sees it all (Proverbs 15:3) – He sees faithfulness and hard work that can sometimes go unnoticed by employers and He says He will reward you for that, so you can rest in that if that is your case. He sees the way we treat our coworkers with love and kindness, praying for them and our employers, seeking their good and success. He also sees the ways someone may mistreat their employer such as using an employer’s time for personal matters and wasting an employer’s resources. For example: When your employer sends you to make purchases, do you use your employer’s money to buy you the more expensive when lesser would do and you would buy lesser if it was your own money? Do you steal from your employer? Are you lazy and fail to carry out his or her instructions for your work. God forgives, but it is good to confess (agree about) sin to Him (1 John 1 8-10), and He desires us to repent and make restitution (Exodus 22:3b) if we need to. From that day forward, we can seek to do our work to God’s glory (1 Corinthians 10:31) and work as we would want someone to work for us if we were an employer (Matthew 22:39). Let us be thankful (Colossians 3:15) for God’s provision of someone to hire us and provide for us financially. We can ask God to help us be a good employee. Here is a photo of some employees and employers working together doing some work on a home I recently purchased. Here they are working on steps, a walkway and a gate. I greatly appreciate their efforts for me in life as I could not do all this work without their help and expertise with the other things that I do as a self-employed person and a volunteer as our Father has called me to be in life!!! 

steps

 Where are you in life??? An employee, an employer, self-employed, a volunteer??? This you can know of our Father:

“God is not unjust; He will not forget your hard work and the love that you show Him as you help His people and continue to help them.”

Hebrews 6:10

If you are an employer, here are some thoughts from God’s Word to ponder in doing your work for our Father. God asks employers in Colossians 4:1 to provide your employees with what is right and fair, because you know you have a Master in heaven (the Lord). The Lord sees everything (Proverbs 15:3). Even if your employees don’t seem to appreciate what you do for them, God sees it and He appreciates it. He will reward you for it. Be considerate of your employees. Do you value each of your employees? Are you friendly to them and treat them respectfully? Do you show favoritism? Are you more concerned with using available resources to make yourself comfortable and promote your image while employees go without the tools and training they need to do their jobs more efficiently and successfully. Do you pray for your employees? Do you ask your employees to do things that are ungodly? Do you cheat your employees out of pay and benefits?   If you haven’t been a good employer, it is not too late to change. Confess your sin (1 John 1:8-10), repent and make restitution (Exodus 22:3b) if you need. We need to treat our employees the way that we would want to be treated if we were someone’s employee, as in fact we are (the Lord’s). Oh let us be thankful for the help God has given to us in the employees who work hard to make us successful. We can ask God to make us a good employer if we are called to that purpose, for “God works in us to will and act according to His purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)

God At Work

Let Your Life Be A Reflection

Wherever and whoever we are, we can each make a heavenly divine difference in raising up glory to our Father as this song says here and to that I say “WOOOHOOO, LET THE GLORY OF JESUS RISE WITH ALL OUR HEARTS INTO IT!!!” FATHER WILL BLESS YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS, DEAR ONES!!! WE REAP WHAT WE SOW INTO LIFE!!! PROUD OF YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR JESUS AND TO BLESS OTHERS!!! MAY FATHER RAISE UP PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO HELP YOU AS YOU HAVE NEED OF HELP IN YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE AS HE HAS ME, TOO!!! BLESSED AND HAPPY IN LIFE WITH YA’S AND KEEPING GOING FOR JESUS!!!

Blessing Jesus

Hi, precious family!!! Today Father puts it on my heart to talk about motive in life – it is the why we do what we do in life and it makes a forever difference as Jesus tells us in His written Word, the Bible. He talks about the day of His return when His of faith join Him in His forever kingdom of love, life, peace, joy and all the fruit of His beautiful divine Spirit with us without any evil around us. In the fullness of time, Satan and his kingdom will have been separated from the kingdom of Jesus who is our God of love and everything that is right and true!!! On that day, it will be this way:

“Then the King will say to those on His right, “Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. ‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger, and you invited Me in, naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
Then the righteous will answer Him, “Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? ‘And when did we see You, a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? ‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?”
“The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these my brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.”

Did you know, dear ones, that when you step out into life to bless another person, Jesus sees it as a spiritual act of worship of Him when you do so with Him in mind!!! YOU delight the King of Glory as you step out to help another and little things make a BIG difference – even a glass of water handed to someone thirsty!!! Oh let us bless the Lord each one of us as His Holy Spirit moves in us to will and act according to His purpose for each of our lives!!! That is the message of this song here – to bless our Jesus who loves us with unfailing, unconditional forever love as His kids of faith!!!

God's Family

I bless His Holy Name with you!!! Father has divine plans for us as His faithful to Him:

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me and I will give to each person according to what they have done.” 

Revelation 22:12

Jesus smiling

Heaven Rewards

When YOU are a blessing to others out of a heart for Jesus because He loves you, you not only bless others, YOU are also blessing He who created YOU!!! That, dear saints, is sooo sweet of YOU!!! Rock on in doing what only YOU can do divinely because YOU love the King of Glory who has loved us from the beginning of time and will continue to love us forever!!! 🙂 We don’t have to do works for salvation into heaven, for it is by grace we are saved thru our faith in His finished work on the cross, but we get to BLESS HIM!!! NOW HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!! Not only does it bless Jesus and others as you step out to be a blessing, but Father says that we are also personally refreshed as we refresh others!!! Oh it sounds like a win, win, win situation that just makes me smile in more ways than one!!! Hope you are smiling, too, where you are!!! It looks good on you!!!

Building Divinely

Awesome new day greetings to ya wherever you are today!!! Whether our Father has placed you in the presence of a woman or a man, His purpose for us each is to carry out His will, His plan and His purpose for us as individuals!!! Oh He has made us builders as the Apostle Paul described himself by the grace of God:

“By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.”

1 Corinthians 3:10

When we step into life to carry out our Father’s will for us, building out of motives of the Holy Spirit will bring about divine building up of the church. Our work will be shown for what it is and what is built on the motives of Christ will survive and we shall receive a reward. If it is done with a motive contrary to the Holy Spirit, our work will be burned up and without reward. However, our salvation remains secure thru faith in Christ’s divine work on the cross for each of us and our seat in heaven is made sure – even though it will be only as one escaping through the flames. To build eternal work thru our lives that brings eternal reward, it takes first building up ourself thru prayer as Father tells us:

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.”

Jude 1:20

Communion with the Holy Spirit in order to build others divinely is important because it is thru praying in the Spirit that our bodies and minds begin to experience an increased measure of the reality of the Holy Spirit’s presence with us!!!

Praying in the Spirit gives us access to the Holy Spirit teaching us how to think and pray:

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come. He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.”

(John 16:13-14)

Woman and Man Praying Together

What is the Holy Spirit revealing to YOU to build???

Motive – may it always be that the glory of the Lord be shown on earth as it is in heaven as this song says here:

Enjoying Heavenly Life on Earth

HOOORAH!!! Exciting new day greetings to you wherever you are today, dear ones with me with Jesus who loves us and has victorious adventurous plans for us each one!!!  As we journey thru life each day, we have the option each day to decide our outlook on life and whether we will let life and circumstances control us or whether we will with our Father’s help take the lead of our own personal lives and despite what life circumstances are, keep a heavenly perspective and choose to step purposefully for divine life!!! What are those steps for you today, sweet kingdom family??? What oh contrary to heaven’s perspective is shouting out to you where you are??? Let us shake those thoughts off and forward ho for the divine life as Father reveals His heart to us each one!!!

God Army

Our lives matter here on earth and to love what we do and feel that it matters – now how fun is that!!! WOOOHOOO!!! Enjoy divine life adventures with our Father and let us keep trusting in Him that He has us and is going to lead us triumphantly as we give the “umph” to going with the promptings of His Holy Spirit to thwart what is not of Father and “umph” to YYYEEESSS LET’S GO FOR THE KINGDOM VICTORY OF HEAVEN HERE ON EARTH!!! Our Father tells us this in His Word:

“How blessed is everyone who fears (reverences) the Lord, who walks in His ways. When you shall eat of the fruit of your hands, you will be happy, and it will be well with you.”

Psalm 128:1-2

Pentecost

Our Father created us with purpose and to be able to enjoy the work of our hands (life). He put the first man Adam into a garden to work and take care of it because he knew it would bless his heart!!!

The Garden

The same is true for you and I!!! What is Father revealing to you is your purpose in life where He has placed you and what specific steps is He calling you to take today with heavenly gusto “YYYEEESSS WE CAN CONQUER LIFE VICTORIOUSLY ATTITUDE???

The Key to Victory Life

Awesome new day greetings, dear family of saints!!! Every morning when we arise, our lives are presented with many opportunities for how we can choose to spend our time, resources and energy. All of our lives are driven by what we hold near and dear to our hearts. In this life, there are many things that we can hold near and dear to our hearts, but there is only one thing that held dear to our hearts that will bring us victory in all things!!! Any guesses as to what that is??? Well, if you guessed Jesus, then you are rootin’ spot on!!! In our Father’s love letter of communication to us, His written Word (the Bible), inspired thru men by His Holy Spirit moving them to write just as He moves all things of the Universe,  we are told that we are created by God with the purpose of enjoying the gift of Him in our life as light for our lives and that every good aspect of our lives is a gift from God!!!

“Every good and perfect gift is coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

James 1:17

Gift of Heaven.jpg

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.”

John 1:1-4

Bible With Cross

In having a relationship with God who is perfect light that shines into the darkness of this world thru His written Word, He has told us we have an enemy in this life who wants to drive a wedge between us and our Father and is always at work to deceive and entice people to sin in ways that work against His heart for us!!! Rather than giving up on His relationship with us and destroying us thru death, He Himself paid the wages of all people’s sins by leaving His heavenly throne on high, coming into the darkness of earth as light thru a man named Jesus, Himself tasting death in our place on a cross, descending into the home of our enemy, hell, and retrieving the key to open up the gate of forgiveness for us so that we may enter into His eternal kingdom of love to us of faith in His efforts for us!!!

Light Keyhole.jpg

WOOOHOOO!!! YAY!!! WAY TO GOOO FATHER!!! THANK YOU FOR RESCUING US AND MAKING US YOUR FOREVER KINGDOM FAMILY!!! BLESSED KIDS ARE WE!!!

“For God so loved the world He gave us His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

Therefore in the eyes of our Father, we are seen as without sin – holy, blameless and without accusation and with no condemnation!!! VICTORY DANCING I AM WITH YOU ONES OF FAITH IN HIM!!! So if when we climb out of bed each day and we think about enjoying life with our Father who loves us perfectly with unfailing, unconditional love, we can know that it is thru our faith in Him and His performance on our behalf on the cross and His Holy Spirit that now indwells our hearts and moves our lives in ways that please Him to carry out His will, plan and purpose for us!!! It is all by His power at work in us and not our own performance efforts!!! All that for saying YES I BELIEVE IN YOU JESUS!!!

Jesus Key to Heaven

“And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Hebrews 11:6

“It is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.”

Philippians 2:13

In summary of all of this love story that He has shared with us, the bottom line is that when we believe in our Father and we look to Him as the priority of our lives, our lives will be heavenly rewarded by Him both here on earth and in the future when He ushers us into His eternal kingdom forever!!! Thru Him, we shall have the divine life of light instead of darkness and our joy with Him in our lives will be complete!!!

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

Matthew 6:33

perfect-you

He tells us “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

John 15:5

I am True Vine

Jesus just always makes me smile – it is the power of His love and light shining into my life as this song says here that makes the difference in my heart and life!!! Wherever you are in life today, dear one – cling to our Father and always, always, always keep faith in Him above all things and we shall find our lives to be divine and filled with joy, forever blessed beyond all that we can ask or imagine!!! Got faith in Jesus??? It is the key to forever life victory, even here and now!!!

Faith Key to Victory
