A word from my beloved

My bride, my bride, my beautiful bride. O how I love and adore thee. My heart is filled with affections of thy love. My Lord has fulfilled a void in me with thy sweet and tender love. Glory to God in the highest. For my bride, my bride, my beautiful bride.
--your beloved-- Samuel

How sweet are your words my beloved husband. May we live to glorify the name of Our Lord Jesus together.

Your bride

Wordless Wednesday


The attitude of the Accepted


Last night our pastor spoke on the attitude of the accepted.. at first I was not sure what it meant. But as he went on it all came together, so I will try to share with you his words, and what God spoke to me through this wonderful service!

He started in 2 Samuel 9-

READ this chapter it is great… My family and I had just recently read and reviewed this chapter.

In this chapter David is seeking someone from the house of Jonathan. Someone he could bless and restore. He called for a servant from that house who informed him that there was one son left, who was crippled.

As the crippled son approached the throne of David he did so with a humble and UNWORTHY heart.Though UNWORTHY as he might have felt, David restored to him all that was his father’s and granted the right to eat at his table for the rest of his life.

How do we tie this in with us now and Christ…  as we approach the throne of God, we are truly unworthy of his grace and mercy, but it is through the blood of Christ that we can communion with God.(or sit at His table)

How do we approach that table or the throne? Do we come with pride? Or anger? Or do we come with humble hearts, knowing we deserve the true punishment for our sins, but grateful for Christ??

Do you realize the God of all creation, the living God who is powerful and all knowing, has gave HIS ONLY SON for YOU??

So what is your attitude towards that- do you give Him all of you as he gave all HIMSELF?? Do you present your body as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your REASONABLE service? (Romans 12:1)

Is it not reasonable to give the one who gave it all, all of you?

Pastor Victor put it this way-

A man walks up to you hands you one million dollars for no reason. You have done nothing to deserve this money, but he gave it anyway.

The next day this same man comes and asks you for a cup of sugar and you look at him with an ugly face and say I do not have a cup of sugar for you. If I give you my cup of sugar then I won’t have any.

Wouldn’t  it be reasonable to give the man who just gave you one million dollars a cup of sugar, if not the whole bag or container of sugar??


It is our reasonable service to give to our Lord all of ourselves for his service!!!


Thank you Lord for this mighty Word!

Out of the Mouth of Babes


One thing I have learned in having children at a young age, then having Noah at 36 years old is scripture must be taught as soon as you can. We have begun to sow in Noah-

Here is a video of him doing

Gen 1:1

Ephesians 6:1  and repeating after me John 1:1

From Out of the mouth of Babes



Busy hands- this weekend I decided I was going to sew.. I have finished three projects-

Pajama pants for my Maria


A dress for our new pastors daughter-

The material is so pretty and so very delicate.


Thus far this is how I spent my Saturday and part of my Sunday- What about you?

Seeking God’s Will


Often times we wonder how we can know for sure what God’s will is for our lives. I know many times myself I have “thought” I was under the will of God then everything goes in a totally different direction then I intended. Was it God’s will or my own will?


As I read this morning a prompting,  strong aching in my heart began so deep with in me… LORD I WANT YOUR WILL NOT MINE FOR MY LIFE!! So how do we know HIS will?


Well first, we must seek his face and CRY out to him. That word CRY has been so deep in my heart, what does it mean to Cry out to God?

And why must we come to this state-crying out?

Many times in scripture it states that he heard his people’s cry?

The word cry appears 181 times in scripture; crying appears 31- so 212 times a form of cry of appears.


Exd 22:23
If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;


HE WILL surely hear their cry-

why in this state, at this point does He hear?

Because it is the state of crying we are broken. IT is when we are crying that our hearts are humbled and it it is at this state that we have truly surrender ourselves, and our will to the Lord. When you cry- whether it be with real tears or a crying from the heart it is a with a tender heart like a father to his hurting child that the Lord speaks.


When was the last time you have gotten on your face before our Lord Jesus and cried in this manner?


Are there things you need a definite answer to- well dear ones- the only way you will hear Him  is if you cry out to Him and seek His will and seek His face in the matter. Sometimes that answer does not come right away, but like a child who asks for something till he receives an answer, you must ask until He reveals to you His answer. Seek His Word and allow our Lord Jesus to direct you and guide you.


Dear Heavenly Father

You are so worthy to be praised. I praise you for your Word. I praise you, Lord, for your revelations, and for those times you heard my cry. Lord, Hear my cry now- help me  as I seek your will in my life. Forgive me for the sins in my Lives. I ask that you give me wisdom.I ask that anyone who reads these words will be touched and changed.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and glory forever- Amen


May you seek the Lord this weekend, and may HE hear your cry.

Pray without Ceasing




Again- my devotional brought me to a place of pondering and considering a verse…

1Th 5:17
Pray without ceasing.


What does that mean to you?

Does it mean that we are to NEVER stop uttering, requests, and situations up to the L-rd?


Beth Moore in my devotionals  states that pray without ceasing means to practice a pray without ceasing relationship seeing everything against the backdrop of His presence.

Everything and anything makes us think of our L-rd Jesus. Having a constant communication with our L-rd, sometimes saying a lot or sometimes saying a little, but living every moment of life as if he is right there… (excerpt from When Godly people do Ungodly things)


He is there always watching, guiding, asking us to just talk to Him, and confide in Him.



You are worthy to be praised!

help us as we continue to seek your word and learn what it is you want for our lives. Help us to understand how to have a pray without ceasing relationship with you. I thank you for your grace, I thank you for your son, I thank you for your mercy.

Be with me this day- may I feel your presence!

For thine is the Kingdom, the power and glory forever ever-Amen
