Expect to see miracles to happen to others. Expect to receive your miracle. Expect miracles everyday.

"When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet." Proverbs 3:24 NKJV
I'm thankful my Father who takes care of my every need. I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, shoes on my feet, and food in my stomach. Some people are sleeping under bridges in cardboard boxes, with holes in their shoes or worse, they have no shoes. They hold their belly, suffering from hunger pangs. It could have been me. It is only by the grace of God that it isn't me.
"Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither reap nor sow nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lillies of the field, now they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink'?' or 'What shall we wear?' For all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." Matthew 6:25-34 NKJV
I'm forever thankful Jesus saved me. He loves us so much He paid the ultimate price so that we may have eternal life. Thank You sweet Jesus!
Every day should be a day of thanksgiving. As for me, each day is a day of thanksgiving. Before getting out of bed, I give the Lord thanks just for waking me up. I thank Him for giving me another chance to serve Him. It's not about the turkey, side dishes, or desserts. It's wonderful when family and friends come together to give thanks, but let us recognize we should have a an attitude of gratitude and grateful heart at all times, not only during this time of the year. Just remember, things could always be worse and for someone it is.
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God In Christ Jesus for you." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV
Have a wonderful & safe holiday. Be blessed.

In life, you experience ups and downs. You should trust the Lord in all circumstances, even when you do not understand the reasons why you are going through difficult situations. When you "trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding and in all your ways acknowledge Him, He will direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5,6 NKJV). Especially during difficult times, Satan whispers lies with the hope you will believe him and lose trust in the Truth. Because the Lord will "lead you into paths of righteousness" (Psalm 23:3 NKJV), Satan is hatin'.
Reading, meditating on, and believing in the Word of God, will help you keep your eyes on Jesus. Your focus will remain on Him and not your circumstances. Satan sends distractions, but you are not easily distracted when your focus is on the Lord. Because your eyes are on the Prize, Satan is hatin'.
"God will keep you in perfect peace when your mind is stayed on Him" (Isaiah 26:3 NKJV). Satan wants to torment and would love to see you lacking in peace. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. He will give you peace in the midst of chaotic and unfortunate situations. Because you have peace, Satan is hatin'.
You praise the Lord. You give Him honor. You give Him glory. You worship the Lord. You adore Him. You love Him with all your heart. These things belong to the Lord. You deny Satan these things. Oh yes! Satan is hatin'.
Do not be fooled by the enemy. Satan has no love for you and wants no good thing for you. "The thief does not come except to steal, kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that, they may have it more abundantly." (John 10:10 NKJV). Satan has plan and it includes stealing, killing, and destroying every good thing the Lord has for you. With Jesus, you have a life filled with blessings that are overflowing and exceed anything you could ever imagine. Beware of the wicked tactics because Satan is hatin'......on you.

This unfortunate circumstance leads to this post. Unfortunate circumstances do happen. We cannot always control what happens, how they happen, or when they happen, but they happen. The one thing we can control is the attitude we keep as we go through those circumstances. I like to say we should turn negatives into positives. You might be thinking that's easier said than done and that might be true in some cases. Just because it might not be so easy to do doesn't mean it isn't doable.
As for the deleted entry, it's a shame a lot of time and hard work went into something that will never be read, but maybe someone needed to read the simple message given in this post. Now, do you see how easy it is to turn a negative into a positive?

To such as are pure in heart.
2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled;
My steps had nearly slipped.
3 For I was envious of the boastful,
When I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4 For there are no pangs in their death,
But their strength is firm.
5 They are not in trouble as other men,
Nor are they plagued like other men.
6 Therefore pride serves as their necklace;
Violence covers them like a garment.
7 Their eyes bulge with abundance;
They have more than heart could wish.
8 They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression;
They speak loftily.
9 They set their mouth against the heavens,
And their tongue walks through the earth.
10 Therefore his people return here,
And waters of a full cup are drained by them.
11 And they say, “How does God know?
And is there knowledge in the Most High?”
12 Behold, these are the ungodly,
Who are always at ease;
They increase in riches.
13 Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain,
And washed my hands in innocence.
14 For all day long I have been plagued,
And chastened every morning.
15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
Behold, I would have been untrue to the generation of Your children.
16 When I thought how to understand this,
It was too painful for me—
17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God;
Then I understood their end.
18 Surely You set them in slippery places;
You cast them down to destruction.
19 Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment!
They are utterly consumed with terrors.
20 As a dream when one awakes,
So, Lord, when You awake,
You shall despise their image.
21 Thus my heart was grieved,
And I was vexed in my mind.
22 I was so foolish and ignorant;
I was like a beast before You.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
24 You will guide me with Your counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
26 My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27 For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish;
You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry.
28 But it is good for me to draw near to God;
I have put my trust in the Lord GOD,
That I may declare all Your works. Psalm 73 NKJV

28Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV

This post is rather short, simple, and straight to the point. Most of you have busy lives, but what is keeping you busy? Are you busy doing unproductive tasks? Are you busy with church activities? During your busy days, do you take time to be silent before the Lord? We should never get to the point of being so busy that we fail to take time out for Him. Each day, set aside time to spend with Him. Silent time. Take this time to listen and adore Him.

Are you tired of making a bigger mess out of a mess? Just throw up your hands and trust God.
Do you want to say good bye to sleepless nights and be free from worry? Just throw up your hands and trust God.
Do you want to walk away from your prayer time filled with faith knowing He has answered your prayers? Just throw up your hands and trust God.
Are you ready to surrender to Him? Are you ready to let God be in control of your life? Are you ready to follow His lead? If the answer is yes, just throw up your hands and trust God.

Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37: 3-6 NKJV
