Are you in shape?

By reading the title, you probably thought this was about exercise, right? It is in the form of "mind" exercise.....

S-Spiritual Gifts

When God created us, He created us out of His very own image....Each of these aspects define who we are in every way, shape, or form. Even though we are all created out of His image~Each of us are different (unique).

God created everyone in a unique SHAPE.  We use our SHAPE to serve God, at church,  at work, at home, during play...

Before answering, Think, how did you use your SHAPE today?

Raise Your Eyes to the Heavens and Pray from the Heart

When things go wrong as they sometimes will...When a loved one hurts you and you don't understand why....The thing to do is,

Look Up, Raise Your Eyes to the Heavens

Pray from your Heart

Isiah 51:6
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail.

Prayer for Uncertain Times

Dear Lord,
In this time of uncertainty,
Be my rock in a world built on sand;
Be my oasis of grace and peace in a world of tension and turmoil;
Help me to carry my cross gracefully, as you did in Your Passion;

Help me to follow Your beam of light in the midst of this darkness;
Help me to see Your will in all things
And show others Your comfort and strength.

Keep me calm when tempers flare up;
Keep me sane in a crazy world;
Keep me focused on the houses in Heaven
rather than the houses of cards collapsing around me;
Keep my eyes focused on the prize of Heaven

and not lose hope in You in this world or in the world to come;
Make me compassionate in dealing with others;
Let me see my travails as carrying my cross and sharing in Your Passion, for the love of You and for the salvation of souls, including mine.
And may all my difficulties be ultimately for my good and Your glory.

“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.

May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.

May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.

 And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

 May He Smile On You All The Day Through~
God Bless,

Jesus Love Me Senior Style

I received this email awhile ago~too lovely not too share! 

While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going to church, I watched a church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age. 


After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gait to the podium. Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak....

"When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials.. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me... The only thing that would comfort was this verse:

"Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong.....
Yes, Jesus loves me....
The Bible tells me so."

When he finished, the church was quiet. You actually could hear his foot steps as he shuffled back to his chair. I don't believe I will ever forget it.

A pastor once stated, "I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best." 


Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow.
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I’ll go
On through life, let come what may,
He’ll be there to lead the way.


Though I am no longer young,
I have much which He’s begun.
Let me serve Christ with a smile,
Go with others the extra mile.
When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song.
Telling me in words so clear,
“Have no fear, for I am near.”

When my work on earth is done,
And life’s victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I’ll understand His love

I love Jesus , does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.

Phillippians 4:13

For a short time lately, I've been feeling weak. Weak with my life, my self esteem and shamefully weak with my faith..I feel that I have forsaken my Faith, which I must work to get back.  I know He still is there for me, I must find my way back into His Arms~

In The Lord's Arms lyrics

Like the wings stolen from an angel
Like petals gone from a rose
Like a dove caught in a storm

Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms

The wind it blew straight through us
And whispered to me in tongues
I was told I was wrong

Tonight he would be in the Lord's Arms
[ From : ]
Tonight he is in the Lord's Arms

So I drinked this wine to him
With each glass of memory
He left with his crown of thornes

Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms

I pray He will wrap His arms around all of us through our trials, tribulations, good times and bad.I know He is there for us....We have to keep our faith, for He works in His time and NOT ours, I will learn to pray for patience and await til He answers my prayers~

Phillippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

God Bless and May He Guide You to your Chosen Path....

The Perfect Place for the Not So Perfect

Through The Darkness

Through the Darkness~
 I see the essence of light........
 This I will follow~
 For this is where He leadeth me~

Psalm 31:3 Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
