Calendar Markings: written on paper and our hearts

I don’t know about you, but dates are meaningful to me.

  • There are our children’s birth days, my husband, family and friends — both physical and spiritual.
  • There is our anniversary, but we also celebrate the 20th of every month.
  • There is the death of loved ones both family and friends, and this includes the heavenly home going of our third baby.
  • There are dates that mile markers that start journey’s as well as end journey’s.
  • I remember the day I got wisdom teeth taken out in my early twenties…Feb. 24, 2002 to be exact. 😊

Sometimes the calendar just needs a break. Dates are attached with joyous occasions, others painful; some are filled with relief, while others are deep hardships. But nevertheless they are your memories. Your rememberances. Your God-given journey we call life.

  • Our responses make a difference whether we choose God or self, bitter or better, the mile marker in time, or outcome, even rememberance can be so different.

Today marks another birthday for me. Another year older, yes, but am I another year wiser in Christ? Am I closer to God now than I was last year at this time? Has this past year been lived-out for Christ or self; has He smelled a sweet aroma or have I been a stench in the nostrils of God?

Dates. Birthdays. Memories. Mile markers. Growth. Struggles. All opportunities to evaluate how we are doing in our walk with God, because in the scope of eternity that is what matters most.

Paul said, in Hebrews 12:1-2, “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so eadily beset us, and let us run the run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…”

I long to hear, “…Well done, good and faithful servant…” (Matthew 25:23).
How about you?

Caution: Your ‘to do list’ may be getting you in trouble!

Have you ever taken a broader look at your “to do list”? Oh, I have them too. Many times they keep me focused in what I should be doing even when I don’t want to do it…come on, be honest, you know what I am talking about! A Pastor friend of ours once said, many years ago, “If you haven’t done something you don’t like in a day, you haven’t accomplished anything.” I have never forgotten that one. 

But there is a danger in creating our “to do lists.” Do you know what that would be? Self! Yeppers! We get in the way. We take control and leave out the One who should be in control of our lives.

  • So, next time you sit down to create your “to do list” consider Christ first. 
  • Pray. 
  • Ask Him what He would require of you first then write down the dishes, laundry, grocery shopping, drop off meal to Suzie as the Lord leads.
  • You may be surprised how well your day goes when you put HIM first. 

I have never seen Matthew 6:33 go wrong! Have you?

Have a blessed day in Christ!

One Single Choice: It Makes All the Difference in the World.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what status, age, race, country you live in, what you have done or not done or whether you own this realization or not, you have made a decision about your eternal end. One single choice: acceptance or rejection of Jesus Christ makes all the difference in your world. How have you chosen?

If you have chosen to accept Christ, the world of difference began the moment you accepted His free gift of salvation. His glory, Heaven, Christ, God the Father, the Holy Spirit, His Word grows sweeter by the day.

If you have chosen to reject Christ, the world you know of will bind you now then take you captive to your final destination. This is where you will truly see the outcome of your choice to reject the Lord Jesus Christ. If you want to know more about eternity, heaven, and the lake of fire (hell) please read ‘Eternity’ on this blog (click left side tab). Eternity is longer than our minds could ever comprehend. You can know for sure where your destiny lies. What will your end be?

If you have chosen Christ, see as God sees…a soul, not just people. Now GO & TELL!

Living in JOY: Is it possible @ any age?

“The Holy Spirit gives us the ability to see God’s beauty in all situations, allowing JOY to well up in our hearts supernaturally” quote by Traci Little.

6 Ways Our Kids Can Learn to Live in Joy by Traci Little.

In no way would I change or want to take away from Traci’s thoughts below, but I do want like to add a thought or two:

  • If you have children, this is FABULOUS. It is challenging, thought provoking, and helpful in steering…no, shepherding our child/children’s hearts. Parents, we cannot teach our children what we ourselves do not know or live out spiritually.
  • If you don’t have children (whether single, married, etc.) this is still just as FABULOUS! Please read. As you read, take these thoughts a step further and consider “6 Ways I Can Learn to Live in Joy!”
  • So regardless of the stage of life you are in, JOY.

[back to Traci…]


If you’ve been a parent for very long, you know how your heart beams when your children play nicely with one another.

You could be enjoying this harmonious bliss of listening to your children playing, laughing, and sharing. And, the next minute? Suddenly, they begin hitting and spewing hurtful words at one another! What happened? Happy one minute and angry the next.

Unfortunately, not much changes when we become adults. While we may not fling a stapler across a coworker’s desk, we certainly may think or say things in the heat of the moment that we regret later.

  • Emotions like happiness and anger are fleeting and unpredictable.
  • Joy, on the other hand, is the foundation for all other emotions. It’s the bedrock that keeps us together in emotion-filled situations where we could potentially unravel. Jesus is the only one who can open our eyes to see His glory. When He does, we experience His perfect joy.
  • You can’t fake joy; you either have it or you don’t.
  • It’s the fruit of the Spirit.
  • Joy is a deep sense of assurance that God’s got us! It’s a peaceful confidence and surrender to the Lord’s plan for our lives.

This is something we want for our children, isn’t it? When our children understand that Jesus is the source of real joy, something truly amazing and life-changing will take place. When our children understand this foundational truth, they can have peace and praise God through everything — good and bad. Our joy spreads when we share it with others. Joy wasn’t meant to be kept all to ourselves.

The Holy Spirit gives us the ability to see God’s beauty in all situations, allowing JOY to well up in our hearts supernaturally. It’s an in-explainable case study set up next to the reasoning of the world.

  • Proverbs 8:32-35 says, “And so, My children, listen to Me, for all who follow My ways are JOYFUL. Listen to My instruction and be wise. Don’t ignore it.  Joyful are those who listen to Me, watching for Me daily at My gates, waiting for Me outside My home! For whoever finds Me finds life and receives favor from the Lord.

Below are six simple ways we can talk with our children about where joy can be found.
6 Ways We Can Teach Our Children to Find Joy:

  • 1) Joy is found in avoiding evil and sinful ways (Psalm 1:1-3). Our children may be tempted to follow their peers that are choosing evil instead of good. While sin may be deceitfully appealing, its ways end in death. Talk about how the person’s life that avoids evil is like a fruitful tree along a riverbank!
  • 2) Joy is found in following God’s commandments (Psalm 19:8). God says that following His ways brings joy to the heart and great insight. Remind your children that following God’s commandments brings joy and wisdom.
  • 3) Joy is found in having integrity (Psalm 119:1-3). We can talk with our children about integrity. Integrity is a knowledge of right and wrong and not swaying from that path no matter what (even when others are not around).
  • 4) Joy is found in trusting the Lord. The Bible is filled with verses that speak about the joy God wants to give us we choose to trust in Him. (Proverbs 16:20) The Bible says that joy is found in those that listen and trust what God says.
  • 5) Joy is found in receiving God’s help (Psalm 28:7). This verse speaks about the Lord being our strength and shield. This implies that He is our protector and guider. When we believe this and see His power at work in our lives, this fills our heart with joy and peace!
  • 6) Joy is found in trials (James 1:2-4). This seems like the opposite of what the world tells us. The world will tell our children that looking out for themselves and having all the things this world has to offer brings true happiness. But, according to the Bible, trials help us turn hard situations into moments of great blessing! Only God can do that! When our faith is tested, it gives us opportunity for our endurance to grow. Talk with your child about how training for a marathon stretches our muscles and builds are physical endurance. Although painful in the moment, it pushes us to be stronger and run further.

Truth be told, this is not just for children, is it?!!?!!

  • Even as I re-read these six ways my soul, mind, and thoughts are rebuked, challenged, yet encouraged in my walk with the Lord.
  • May this be for you as well, I pray!
  • Yes! As a parent, I DO want my children to grasp these Biblical principles then choose to personally live them out truly experiencing a life well lived in Christ’s real joy, but I cannot teach them what I do not first learn and live out myself.
  • Children are smart little critters. They will see our hypocrisy and what will that gain Christ, nothing, and we do injustice to our children.
  • Live it out first — whether you have children or not, whether you are married or not, status doesn’t matter before God, but your heart does!

“Oh Lord, may we walk in obedience before you and in our journey as parents shepherding our children’s hearts as individual souls training them up in the way(s) you have created in them.  Help us Lord to continually point them to you alone and not ourselves or others.  Lord, may we personally be actively pursuing you and be proactive in parenting and never see our God-given role as an inconvenience or bother, for their souls are created in your image! Help us cherish the treasure we call our children. Help us treasure the gift of your Joy. In Jesus Name, Amen.”

Duct Tape vs Nails

  • “But God demonstrated His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8.
  • “For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;” I Peter 3:18.
  •  “Yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach” Colossians 1:22.
  • “For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living” Romans 14:9.
  • “We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” I John 3:16.
  • “Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ” I Peter 1:18-19.
  • “For even the Son of Man did not come to be saved, but to serve, and to give His life a ranson for many” Mark 10:45
  • “He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification” Romans 4:25.
  • “I am the good Shepherd; the good Shepherd lays down His life for  the sheep. Even the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep” John 10:11,15.
  • “For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” Romans 5:6,10.
  • “For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again in their behalf” 2 Corinthians 5:14-15.
  • “Who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him” I Thessalonians 5:10.

In these 16 verses alone they just my the goosebumps! Seeing the love of the Father and the Son for mankind…for me, for you…I am overwhelmed. I am humbled yet incredibly encouraged that He loves me so. He loves you that much!!!

There are numberous passages beyond these that we could quote, yet in these 16 verses alone we see clearly see who God is, His physical acts of love upon mankind along with His love for mankind. His Son’s love, display, physical death and resurrection, submission to the will of the Father, beyond discription of outward and inward love for both us and his Father. What a display of example to us.

Together, we could literally spend hours filling pages full of God, His attributes or character. We could fill blog posts of the Words of God proclaiming how Scripture is compacted with living displays of vibrant, consistent, unchangeable, unwavering, unshakable, demonstrations of God’s love for mankind from time past, this present day, and in the future to come showing our immense need for thee Savior. 

Sadly, in the midst of all this knowledge (yes, I am talking to believers here), we often fail to live in the land of belief, trust, and simply put “not quiet sure God’s got this” mindset that lives out ‘self is better than God’. Oh, we would never say this outwardly but we live, make decisions, act, think, and like it. You may disagree with me, but this leans me to one thought. One question.

  • Take some time to evaluate and take inventory of yourself–what do you do or don’t do, how do you live or not live your saved-by-grace-heaven-God-given-bound earthly life here on Earth, what comes out of your mouth or not, what is it you choose to dwell on or not dwell on, how you spend your time, look in your check book, how much do you love God and display that love to Him.
  • Now honesty answer this question: WHO is sitting on the throne of your life? Two cannot reign at the same time. It is either YOU or GOD. So, how is it? WHO is in control? The duct tape or the nails?

We read, hear sermons, maybe even teach a class, sing in choir or lead the choir, yet still doubt the God in whom took the nails for us. We doubt that God can’t and I am better able. We choose the duct tape. We deny the power of those nails and choose our handy-dandy self-duct tape to fix our life’s problems when all we need, who we need, is given to us within the pages of Truth, God’s Word.

Sure, real duct tape has its purpose in real life; we would never think of using duct tape to build a house. Thus we should never metaphorically replace Christ’s nails with our own self-induced duct tape and count it stronger or more reliable than Christ’s nails…NEVER!

How are you building sister or brother in Christ?

Come ye Thankful People, Come!

In our home, school is finished for the week (ya!!!) and the process has begun where mother tells daughters: put your clothes away (I need the laundry baskets back…yes, you will have more laundry to put away 😊), clean up your rooms, fix the pillows & throw blankets in the living room, kitchen duties, feed Lucy (our dog), and oh….let’s make a pot of coffee!        

Why? Why are we cleaning the house and putting things away? First, you should see our house, lol! Seriously, because things really do need to be done and it’s a part of life (and learning). Second, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. It’s time to prepare. After all these things are done, we will begin all the “fun” stuff like: trimmings, desserts, food dishes, new recipes, green bean casserole, and setting the tables all pretty like, etc.

I love Thanksgiving. The smells. The dishes. The ideathe idea of thanks

Thankfulness isn’t linked to our circumstances.

Choosing to be thankful, grateful, having a heart of graditude, joy, isn’t measured or sourced by or changed due to situations, circumstances, people, or even self. Thanksgiving should be a daily spiritual “feast” in which the child of God expresses his or her’s enormous thanks to God because he or she understands without God they are nothing, have nothing…indeed, overwhelmed by the powerful in-depth love that the Father has bestowed unto them.

Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving Day? If not, you’ll get there. Relax, it will all come together. I hope you have a wonderful day spent with family or friends or both!

But let’s not get caught up in the “idea” of thanksgiving and forget the Giver. In reality, a holiday should make no difference in the life of a believer for the heart of thanksgiving should already be a daily occurrance. 

Don’t misunderstand me, I love this national holiday, but let’s make a point tomorrow to not forget the Ultimate Giver.

  • Spend time with Him personally before the day gets busy.
  • Make it a point to steer the hearts and minds of those you are with to HIM
  • Take extra specific time giving thanks to the Lord for in whom is due all our praise over your Thanksgiving Day. 
  • Create a table setting “I am thankful for…” and share your writings around the table.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Does Your Breath Count?

Measuring this earthly-life in God’s scope of eternity will change your here and now for all your eternity to come. 

  • How do you chose to give out your given-breath? Are you selfish in it’s usage or are you without borders in praise to the One who gave it to you in the first place, because you know without Him you would have no breath?
  • We only know right now…the next second is unknown and not promised.
  • Make now count & enjoy your Lord!

In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}

Who is God to You?

  • We hear.
  • We see.
  • We experience.
  • We choose.
  • We decide.
  • We deny.
  • We accept.
  • We. 

    Maybe, just maybe, if we chose to put ourself aside for just one moment to stop presupposing we knew who or what God is, but rather came before Him & His Word with simple child-like-wide-open unbias eyes, untainted heart, and unskewed minds….maybe, just maybe, we would grasp His understanding of who and what HE IS for who and what HE SAYS HE IS, not what we think He is

    It would be then, that we would begin to understand the attributes of God. It would be then, that we would begin to hear, to see, to experience, to choose, to decide, to deny, to accept, to know God for God…prehaps like the very first time you met.

    Church…we ARE Plan A there is no Plan B

    3 Simple Reasons why Church is God’s Plan A.

    Here are three simple reasons why “church” is GOD’S plan A and there is no plan B in God’s book. Why we must stop kicking and screaming and questioning God’s plan. It is He that is in change. It is HIS salvation gift to us. It is His death that paid the price…NOT OURS!

    1. Church is plan A because God tells us NOT to forsake the gathering of ourselves together as believers. This is one of those hot buttons of the day and yes, I am going to talk about it! First, I’d like to say that I am truly sorry if you have been hurt, offended, or even abused in any form by the church as a whole. This is WRONG!! This is not pleasing, honoring, or glorifying to the Lord nor is it not His plan for His church.

    But may I ask you a question? Have you ever bought something from a store, like meat, and got home to find out that it was bad? Did it stop you from buying meat for the rest of your life? 

    Have you ever had food poisoning from a restaurant? Did that stop you from ever eating out again? Most likely NOT! 

    SO…why is it when something “bad” at church happens we lump them all together and vow the mother of all vows that ALL Christians are hypocrites, ALL churches are filled with liars, cheaters, hypocrites, and rotten filthy sinners and we are never going back. 

    I want to stop right here. I understand, I know I talk with ladies who have physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually been abused by family members, unbelievers as well as believers. None are right. None should have happened (mine included), but we live in a sin-filled world and we have a choice. Yes, we have a choice even in the midst of our greatest pain, sorrow and trial. Will I use this situation to grow closer to my Heavenly Father or will I take it and grow bitter by the the day.

    So often, I see “church” used as an excuse and see bitterness grow by the day and the choice to live in disobedience to God spiral from that one choice! 

    The bitterness will take you farther than you ever excepted to go. 

    Regardless of what enters of life, we are accountable before Christ. When we use people as an excuses to not obey Christ, we justify our own actions and guilt to make ourselves feel better. 

    I have another question to ask you. I am assuming you got over your food poisoning or got over that purchase of “bad meat.” If I opened your refrigerator door, I would find it full or at least part-way full and would come to find out that you have feasted on many meals “outside” of your home. You didn’t grow bitter at the “bad” meat. You didn’t call the store a hypocrite. You didn’t hold a grudge. You didn’t allow bitterness, people, or excuses from stopping you from shopping or eating, did you??!!

    So why the double standard? Using people, excuses, our own bitterness and unforgiveness to NOT obey God is sin. If you are a child of God, you are part of plan A…you are not doing your part. You are needed, but you are choicing to missing out on God’s plan A. 

    Because Matthew 18 wasn’t practiced like it should have been when the offense happened, sadly, you are hurting yourself, the church, fellow believers, unbelievers, and you are hurting the cause of Christ…for what “bad meat?” That didn’t stop you before!

    Reconcile that “bad meat” even if the other party doesn’t want too! Make it right before God on YOUR end!! Go and confront that offense! Seek and be ye reconciled. Forgive.

    I speak from experience! I have “abuse” in my background. What kind I will not speak of at this time, but believe me when I tell you, I know! I know what I feels like, how it hurts, the anger, bitterness, the confusion, the spiral effects. But I also know the healing power of God in ones heart and life. I know the comfort and release of walking in obedience to the Father and it is worth it all! I would do it a thousand times over!

    It is one of the hardest things you will ever do, but it is one of the most spirit-freeing (bondage releasing) God+you experience you will ever do, because when you walk in trust and obedience, God blesses! You NEVER go wrong walking in obedience to Christ….NEVER!

    Hebrews 10:25

    2. The very second you accepted Christ as your personal Savior, He gave you at least one spiritual gift, at least one. You may have more! Do you know your spiritual gift or gifts? Do you know God wants that gift or gifts to be used? Yeppers, you guessed it! For Him, for His Glory in His Church! 

    I hear the question already, can you use your God-given gift in other places? Sure! But the primary place is where He wants, within His Church. Again, this is not our plan or trying to make our plan work…this is God’s plan. We either obey and do or not!

    I Peter 4:10-11

    3. Church is Plan A because it is the only plan! We are to be proclaiming, mouthpieces, ambassadors, of what and who God is and what He has done for us to everyone soul we come in contact with. To fail to accomplish the great commission is to live in disobedience to Christ. 

    Matthew 28:18-20

    • The bottom line is this: God’s Word is clear. The choice is in your hands…your heart.
    • How will you choose to walk before the very God who gave you your eternal life? 

    In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}

    a given blessing

    • Time.
    • It is a given blessing from the Lord.
    • How is your usage?
    • Who is its main focus?

    “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is…be filled with the Spirit” Ephesians 5:15-18. 

    In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}

    Excuses, excuses: validation or not?

    Confession time here…tiredness leads to stress for me. They are not a good combo. Over the years, by God’s grace, it is something both learned and to be aware of.

    I don’t know about you, but for us, life is full. A good kind of full, but nevertheless, full. Truly, God is good; that goodness is not our right, but a gift graciously given to us by God to His children.

    God never promised pain-free or mountaintop-highs.

    In all our blessings, opportunities, trials, and testings, honestly, we get tired; sometimes utterly exhausted.

    Without Christ, our attitude of choice becomes unChrist-like, doesn’t it?

    Tiredness (for me stress must be added to this statement) gives us no right, no authority, no excuse to act, live, speak, or think carnally. None! 

    Ouch! 

    You will find no Scripture verse that gives the license to walk flesh-like while claiming Christ regardless of your weakness.

    A question we could ask ourselves is this: “Am I living in the flesh or the Spirit right now?” 

    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the list of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that we cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law…and they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” Galatians 5:16-25.

    • To all who gave for God & country…thank you!
    • To all who sacrificed (that includes your families)…thank you!
    • To all who gave the ultimate sacrifice…thank you!
    • To all those who suffer today because of your service…thank you! In our home, you have not been forgot and you, yes you (even though we may not have ever met) are prayed for in specific ways.
    • To those who are serving right now…thank you! You are in our prayers as well! May the Lord protect you as you protect America. I am proud to be an American and extremely thankful for our freedoms! Thank you LORD!

    this is my prayer for you

     

    For anyone who’s prayed a thousand prayers
    And still can’t find the answer anywhere
    Fighting off the lie that no one cares
    For anyone who’s out there losing hope
    Feeling you’re forsaken and alone
    Clinging to the last strands of your rope

    May God give you eyes to see, He’s still greater
    Courage to rise and believe He’s able
    May God be your peace in the fire you’re walking through
    This is my prayer now
    This is my prayer for you

    For all of those with tired and weary souls
    But still have faith to ask for miracles
    Choosing to believe He’s in control

    May God give you eyes to see, He’s still greater
    Courage to rise and believe He’s able
    May God be your peace in the fire you’re walking through
    This is my prayer now
    This is my prayer

    May your eyes be ever on the Lord, your helper
    May you find your refuge in the Lord, your shelter
    May you find Him closer than a brother all your days
    All of your days!
    And may your eyes be ever on the Lord, your helper
    May you find your refuge in the Lord, your shelter
    May you find Him closer than a brother all your days
    All of your days!

    May God give you eyes to see, He’s still greater
    Courage to rise and believe He’s able
    May God be your peace in the fire you’re walking through
    This is my prayer now
    This is my prayer for you!
    For you!
