I (Nina) was reading through my journal this morning; some of the first entries I had written in my (then) new journal I got for Christmas from my dear husband. The year was 2002.

At the top of the journal page is this scripture, "I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me." Proverbs 8:17

Dated, April 28, 2002 (and I quote)

     "(I do not set aside the grace of God.) We went to church early for prayer time. I developed a stomachache and it seemed to be getting worse. I had thoughts (the devil) of going to the car or just sitting in the bathroom, but I said 'No, I'm going to pray.' The Lord told me, "I am holy and that is all that matters right now."

I thought of the angels in heaven crying, 'Holy, holy holy.' The Lord gave me a song about His holiness. As I was singing stomachache was totally gone. I related God's holiness to a consuming fire. He burns away all that is 'self,' if we allow Him to.  Sickness is part of 'self.'

As I focused on Him and His holiness - He was able to consume the sacrifice. I am reading a book called, "Forever Triumphant." by F.W. Huegel. Revelation is coming. Give me a deeper revelation, Lord, of "It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me." Amen!"

I don't normally share my personal journal thoughts/entries, but I felt in this case, it was important. Someone needed to hear this. And probably more than a few 'someones.'

                               Blessings on your life in this new year!

Happy New Year All! 2019

We pray that each one reading this would enjoy a most happy (blessed) and prosperous 2019! 

As believers, we all have a part to play. We need to stop "playing around." We need to "take our place" in the body of Christ. What a privilege to be called a child of God, the most high God! We are His family! He needs us (and is requiring us) to work in partnership with Him. You may not believe that, but it's true. And speaking of that....

We can't think of anything better to share with you on this 5th day of the New Year, than what we are about to share with you. The following link contains the prophecy that the Lord gave to Kenneth Copeland on New Year's Eve-12/31/2018.  It resonates with our spirit and we hope it will with yours as well, as you watch and/or read the content.  So, here it is...please take it to heart.

God is our refuge and strength, 
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled, 
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.  Selah

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, 
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High, 
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.  Selah

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.  Selah

How to Know for Sure You'll be in Heaven

The Bible tells us in Romans 10:9-11

" That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." "

The choice is up to you. Nobody else. You.

Father God has given all of us the invitation to spend eternity with Him in heaven.  Ask Him to take your life and do something with it.  It will be the best decision you ever made in your life. I promise you that!

We hope that you and yours have a wonderful celebration of Thanksgiving together.

Good Good Father w/ Lyrics (Chris Tomlin)

He is a GOOD, GOOD Father!  If you grew up believing anything else, they told you wrong.

Ask Him for a revelation of Who He is.  He will show you.  He loves it when His children seek Him in all of His fullness. And if you're here, and you can't say that you are His child, that can all change today, this moment.   Just say, Jesus-I want to know you as Savior and Lord of my life. I give my life of sin and shame to you; take it and do something with it. Live Your life big in me. Thank you Jesus!

Now-if you prayed that prayer just now-you have been born (again) into the family of God! It's that simple. You have been saved BY GRACE through FAITH. Your job now is to find out who you are in Christ Jesus and to find out just how much God loves you! He wants to reveal Himself to you through His word (that's the main way He does it). I always tell people to begin by reading the book of John in the New Testament.

God has been so maligned and lied about throughout the years.  The enemy of our souls does not want us to KNOW the Father, because if we find out how GOOD He is, our lives will be forever transformed.  He wants to give us life and prosper us in all things. Then we can go out and share His love with others.  That's His plan. Will you be part of His plan?  He would love nothing better!

God's Word ~ the Best Seed

Did you know that God's word is seed? The Bible says that when we are 'born again,' we are born of the incorruptible "seed" of the word of God.

    (having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 1 Peter 1:23)

We all know what seeds are meant to do. They are meant to produce a plant...and eventually, fruit. The same way that people plant cucumber seeds and tomato seeds and expect to receive a harvest from their efforts, we need to plant the word of God in the soil of our hearts~and expect a harvest!

This morning, I was thinking about soil. The farmer spends more time preparing the soil to receive the seed than he does actually planting seed. Jesus talks about the soil producing "some thirty, some sixty and some one hundredfold" returns.

   (But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred. Mark 4:8)

The seed always has the potential of producing a one hundredfold return. The seed was all the same seed. So, the condition of the soil of our hearts plays an important role here.  We want our soil to be "good soil." How do we get good soil? I believe that it comes by seeking the Lord/Spirit of the word and asking him for understanding as we read His word.  Matthew 13:23 says that it's he/she who hears the word and understands it - that is the one who produces the harvest.

It seems to follow that a greater understanding of the word would bring a greater harvest. There are many things we can do to prepare the soil of our hearts. Stop letting the world dictate how you should spend your time. Humble yourself before the Lord and believe what He says about you. Stop listening to the world's advice. Go to the word of God for counsel. Be thankful and give God praise for all that He's done in your life.

"And He (Jesus) said to them, He who has ears to hear, let him hear." Mark 4:9  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Make room for Him.
