Good Morning All,

As I was meditating and thinking this morning, my heart went to THANKFULNESS. So many times in life we look at what we lost or what we are missing instead of what God has given us and how he has kept us.

Jeremiah 29:11 (Whole Chapter)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an
expected end.

We don’t always understand why things happen the way they do, why friendships seem to end, why jobs may end, why sickness and disease try to come upon you, but we have to keep our eyes on Jesus the AUTHOR & FINISHER of OUR FAITH!! Jesus has an expected end for us!!! We may have to go through some things to get there, but our FOCUS must STAY ON HIM and not the things we aregoing through!! I am so thankful today that I know that I am in the palm of his hand. He will never leave me or forsake me… My emotions will go up and down considered what I am focusing on…. That is why he said “I will keep you in perfect peace whose heart and mind is stayed on me”

When we have a revelation of all he has done for us and what is available for us to walk in daily, we can’t help but to be overwhelmed with Thankfulness!!

Colossians 3:15 (Whole Chapter)
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Let me show you in the word of God what happens when we are not thankful for all God has done for us.

Romans 1:21 (Whole Chapter)
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

When you KNOW God and you don’t glorify him and give him the honor and thanfulness due Him, you will become vain in your imaginations and your foolish heart will be darkened. In other words you will begin to see things differently that God wants you to see them.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus today!! Look at all the GOOD things he has done!!!! If you don’t see anything think of the CROSS. He died for you!! On that cross he purchased so much for you, that you may not be aware of yet. He not only purchased salvation, and the forgiveness of your sins, he purchased peace, joy, divine health and so much more!! Keep your eyes on what HE did, so you can accomplish all he has for you to do!!

Thank Him today!!

God bless you

Pastor Carol

Good Morning my Dear Friends!

god-is-so-good-title

I am so thankful for another day to come into the presence of God! Another day to cast all my cares upon Him, because I KNOW he cares for me!! I am so thankful for His word that will not return void but will accomplish that whereto it is sent. I am thankful for answered prayer!! Even this morning I received an e-mail about a situation we had believed God to intervene on and HE DID!! I am so thankful for God’s provision in every area of my life, even when circumstances may not reflect it, I KNOW who my provider is!!! I am so thankful this morning for my family! Sometimes you can take your family members for granted, don’t do that today, let them know how much you love them and are thankful for them!!

Psalm 100:4

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise, be thankful unto him, and bless his name

I want to encourage you to do something today. You may be like me, where there are a few things that you are trusting God for that you haven’t seen yet and it may even seem like you really need him to move on those things, right now Lord, but what I feel we all need to do is…. Put away the list of this you are waiting God to do and start a new list today of all those things He has already done and thank him for them. And really you will see he has already healed you, even though you might not feel it, HE HAS. He has already provided for you, even though you may not see it, HE HAS.  Lets have that Thankful heart today and watch the mainfistations of those things come flooding in and you thank him and praise him before you see it in the natural!!!

BE THANKFUL FOR THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS!!

God Bless you today

Pastor Carol

Good Morning All,

Sorry I missed you yesterday, but I am back with a fresh word and a new journey!! As we have learned in the last couple of weeks as we studied about the words of our mouth, we discovered that our words flow from the abundance of our heart. So we are going to start a new journey on our heart!!

heart

Let start in Deut 6:5

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might

This scriptures tells us, God doesn’t want a part of your heart, HE WANTS IT ALL!!

People can tell when your heart is really into something you are doing, the same is with the Lord, he knows if your heart is really in your relationship with him!

Are we loving Jesus with ALL our heart today??

1 Samuel 16:7b

…For the Lord sees not as man sees’ for man looks on outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.

This verse reminds us that men see our outward appearance, our actions and our words, though many of these show our heart, people are able to put on an appearance when they want to.. In other words appear to be something they really are not…., BUT with God he sees out heart and the motives of our heart and we cannot put on an appearance for him, bcause he can see right through it to our heart!!!

Why is the condition of our heart so important????

Psalms 24:3-5 explains one of the reasons:

vs 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? Vs 4 He that has clean hands, and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. Vs 5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

The purity of our heart is important!! To enter into His presence and to receive all He has for us it requires clean hands and a pure heart! Do we all have times we fall short of this, YES, but we know that when our hands get dirty or something impure sneaks into our heart, all we have to do is come to the Lord and confess our sins to him and he is faithful to cleanse us from all unrighteousness!!

God wants your WHOLE HEART today!! If you have allowed other things to creep in and take over, get with him today and make it right!!

We love you!!

Pastor Carol
