Looking Back Into My Future

Today is my birthday and the first thought that crossed my mind was to give my Good Good Father my appreciation for the life He has given me.

Looking Back Into My Future

Good morning Father

This is the day that you have made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

This is the day July 19 you planned

For my entrance into the earth

At 2:18 am you hit the start button

For me to begin on the journey

Of my purpose and destiny

Sometimes it hasn’t been easy

But you’ve been here for me

To get me back to your path for me

You knew there would be stubborn times

That I would be disobedient

And do my own thing

You’d let me with a watchful eye

You were there to pick me up

Dust me off and love on me

When my stubborn actions

Got me in trouble

To let me know you’ve still got me covered

You’ve been and still are a Good, Good Father

You are true to your word

You never leave me nor forsake me

You take such good care of me

You said I am bound to be blessed

You heap blessings upon me daily

You shower me with gifts and surprises

That turns me into Daddy’s giggly, giddy little girl

I thank and praise you for letting me

End one year and start another with great

Expectations of what you want me to do for you

I do and always will love you

Need you and trust you with

Every beat of my heart

I honor and love you for being my Good Father

Facing A Fear

This coming weekend I’m taking a CHL class. Before taking the class I needed to go to the range and practice the targets.

I should have completed the class a while ago but fear stood in the way because someone tried to take my life with the very thing I’m going to get a license for-a gun.

A friend was supposed to go with me to the range but for reasons unknown to me he didn’t show. After sitting in the parking lot for fifty-five minutes I had to leave for another appointment I couldn’t miss so I headed out.

Now comes the dilemma-when can I get back to the range to practice before the class this weekend. After my appointment was over I googled Eagles and found they were open until 9 pm. I prayed and enlisted God’s guidance and made my way back there again. I had been there before but never alone so I was nervous. I was met with friendly faces who were eager to help me get registered and a nice gentleman who attended to my needs on the inside.

The biggest thing that unnerved me was the sound of the guns firing. I’d jump every time I heard someone shoot but I stood against the fear I felt until it left. Every time I pulled the trigger I closed my eyes and I couldn’t tell if I hit the target or not. After becoming aware of what I was doing I had to make myself keep my eyes open. By that time I’d fired fifty rounds and it was time to go. While practicing I only jammed the gun twice. The nice man got me out of those jams.

All year things from my past have been popping up for me to deal with. So now was the time for my fear about my life almost being taken from me to be absolved. Today no more fear concerning that lives here. That journey was mine alone and no one else could help me.

I will attend the class, pass the test and get my license.

The Feast Of Trumpets

The first of the Fall Feasts of the Lord 2017 started at sundown September 20 through September 21. It’s called Feast Of Trumpets. It is called Yom T’rooah in Hebrew. It is also known as Rosh Hashanah, Head of the Year, and is celebrated as the Jewish New Year.

The blowing of the Shofar announces God’s Manifest Presence.

Exodus 19:13; Leviticus 23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

In the picture above of the apple and honey represent God’s provision and sweetness that He will manifest to us in the coming year.

Blessings as you celebrate and feast with the Lord!

We All Praise YAH – James Vincent

We all praise YAH during our times of trials

We all praise YAH our God

When seasons change

Faithful One you stay the same

We all praise YAH our God

For the One who was

And the One who is

For the One who’s coming again

We all praise YAH we all praise YAH

We all praise YAH our God

When the days grow dim

Surety of the life has passed

Into the hands of men like me

I will lift my eyes

For He is my Hope

And I will still praise

YAH my God

#atozchallenge – Wade in the Water

Wade In The Water – Negro Spiritual

Wade in the water

Wade in the water, children,

Wade in the water

God’s a-going to trouble the water

See that host all dressed in white

God’s a-going to trouble the water

The leader looks like the Israelite

God’s a-going to trouble the water

See that band all dressed in red

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Looks like the band that Moses led

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?

God’s a-going to trouble the water

The Holy Ghost a-coming on me

God’s a-going to trouble the water

If you don’t believe I’ve been redeemed

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Just follow me down to the Jordan’s stream

God’s a-going to trouble the water

#atozchallenge – Only You

O.jpg

Only You – The Platters

Only you can make all this world seem right

Only you can make the darkness bright

Only you and you alone

Can thrill me like you do

And fill my heart with love for only you
Only you can make all this change in me

For it’s true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You’re my dream come true

My one and only you
Only you can make all this change in me

For it’s true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You’re my dream come true

My one and only you
One and only you

The ‘Only You’ in my life is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Hope you find or know your ‘Only You’.

atozchallenge – Money

Money

The words below are from the song by the O Jays-For the Love of Money

Money money money money, MONEY

Money money money money, MONEY

Some people got to have it

Hey, Hey, Hey – some people really need it

Y’all do bad thangs with it

Well, you wanna do good thangs with it

For the love of money

People will steal from their mother

People will rob their own brother

The words below are from Jesus – Matthew 6:24

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Who or what are you serving?
