“I’m forgiven because you were forsaken; I’m accepted you were condemned. I’m alive and well your Spirit is within me because you died and rose again. Amazing love, how can it be that you my king have died for me?” “You are my King” by Newsboys
Have you ever stopped to think about the depth of Jesus’ love for you and me? Undeserved love, undeserved…Continue

I have a sister in the faith who does this Pinterest thing. I'm not into it, but she posted a photo of a book entiled "365 Things for Which I am Grateful". So we got to chatting back and forth on Facebook, and came up with this idea.
On Thanksgiving day (which means we have a month to prepare), we both will start a Gratitude Journal, and every day write in it things for which we are thankful...and to whom.
It can be like scrapbooking, and include mementos from the people, times…Continue
I was sitting in church last Sunday, and before the service started, I think God wanted to throw me a bone. All of a sudden, the Holy Spirit revealed some truths about the character of God, to me, and while I cannot put them into words, nor adequately explain, I think I can explain this the best out of all of the illuminations:
What does it mean that God is holy? In Revelation 4:
In the center, around the throne, were…Continue
When I go to the gym, I usually warm up in the treadmill but only in the manual workout, the other day I finally figured out why I do this. I realized that in manual I am in control of the difficulty level, I know what to expect and I like that. The truth is I don’t make it too hard, just enough to feel I am working. I think in life we also like the manual…Continue
Some folks say You've gone away, forever
Although I know it really isn't true
But the world I live in tries to tell me You're a fable
And tries to make me live the way they do
They try to compensate for You with stories
of jolly men and magical cartoons
They even make You up and say that You're so very special,
but they just want to profit from Your name
But Jesus, You're the dawn of my morning
breaking forth like sunlight upon a cloudy…
Were done here God. It's been nice knowing you. If you are not going to step in and do something about this then I am finished. Do you know of someone (or perhaps yourself) that has said this ? Maybe not in those exact words or perhaps they haven't said a word at all, but they haven't been to church for months. "They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been…Continue

Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees. Psalm 119:124
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.…
The other day I got a package in the mail. I don’t know about you, but I love getting packages so I was very happy and put it in the kitchen counter to open it later with more time. From the counter I moved it to the table and then to the…
At seven years old I had began my second grade year in a small elementary school in Southern California. It had been about seven months since my life had changed forever and I had become a foster child.
In so many ways I had become aquainted with a life of stability, comfort and acceptance..... but there was still a cord of insecurity, lack of confidence and unworthiness that ran deep within me.
The Lord knew his child's need and placed Mrs. Goodhope my…Continue

I would love to start blogging on a regular basis so I can learn the "in's and out's" of blogging. I have interests in business, the outdoors, gardening, writing, sharing my faith and How God walks with me, missions and travel. So, if anyone is wanting to join in these topics....LETS GO!
I'm creating a business that is allowing me more time to do what I want to do. I'm always looking for business partners too. I love it; the people I'm meeting are awesome and can't believe…Continue
Have you noticed how at an especial sports event or a performance everyone is focused only on the main court, the field or the stage, no one pays attention to what is going on around them. Many times we do the same thing in our life, we concentrate on the big things, the main events and somehow we disregard the daily “little” things in life. The same way we…Continue
I was allowed by Sharon Martinez to publish this for the glory and honor of Jesus Christ. Amen! Having spoke to her for only a short time on the phone, I know she does not want any praise or glory. I felt led of the Lord to ask her permission to publish this...she didn't ask me , I asked her.
Do you believe God died for your sins and have you admitted to God that you believe in him and asked him to forgive you of your sins and to be your Lord and Savior? I have. If you have, do me a favor and hit like at the bottom or say Amen so I will know. Thanks.
The Bible says we are all sinners. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 says: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
In the world we often see awful things happening sometimes in faraway places to people we don’t know and other times to friends and family close by. It is difficult to understand why bad things happen and we may feel helpless as we witness things that we wish we could ignore and pretend they are not real.
When we feel crushed with the pain around us…Continue
