Done With John

I have completed the book of John! :-)

I will start the book of Acts, chapter 1 tomorrow, May 1st. Love it.

By reading through the new testament, I Have learned things I didn't know.

It's always good to skip around the bible and read different chapters, but it's really good to read the books right after the other as well.
I'm learning a lot more.

...till next time,
God Bless!

My Prayers Going Out To The South

If you didn't hear about the tornados that hit southeastern states like Alabama and Georgia, you can see Yahoo's coverage of it here

My family lives in Georgia, and I'm still here with them right now, and thank God we were not hurt in the storm.

It's said that over 200 lost their lives in the disaster and others who lost their homes and businesses.

I am praying that God give families strength and and comfort in dealing with this disaster.

Done With Luke

I finished the book of Luke about two weeks ago and I am now on John chapter 15.

I want to be able to read God's word and understand what God's saying. I like having those "ohhh" and "hmmm" and "wow" moments when I read the Bible.

I try to read 2 to 4 chapters a day, so by the time December comes around I'm done with Revelation.

...till next time,
God bless

Giving God My All!!!

During the past week, I've been working on growing closer to God and experiencing his presence more! It is such a wonderful thing!

I've been working on giving God my ALL!
Holding back nothing for my pleasure and comfort. Otherwise I don't think I'm really pleasing God.
Lukewarm Christianity isn't for me!

Dedicating everything that I am to Jesus and making Him NUMBER ONE in my life is my main focus from here on out.
Otherwise my living would be in vain.

God's Word!

Luke 17:6 (NIV)

He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you."

How small is a mustard seed?

I Don't Want To Look Like Her

'Her' meaning the next Christian Woman.

I believe that Christian women should look modest-- not showing off their bodies or putting themselves in any spotlight-- but I don't think that modesty only has one look.

It is possible to look modest and decent without having to look like the woman next to you in Church, right?

I sure think so!

Done With Mark

OK, so I'm still behind on my reading...but I'm happy that I'm finished with the book of Mark.

Now, I have to write what I know/understand, just like I would if I was studying for a test.

I'm also still working on having my Bible-reading sessions be something that I take pleasure in, instead of something that needs to be done.

I do enjoy reading my Bible, but there are times (like when I'm rushing to read it because of time) that I do it as something on my to-do list.

I am still a work in progress -- noting my faults and working to improve them is part of the 'progress' :)

Until next time,
God Bless!

Jesus Is Peace

I love this:

Know Jesus, know peace
No Jesus, no peace


This Is The Day The Lord Has Made

Today was a beautiful day!

It was 78 degrees and sunny -- with no clouds in the sky today!

Today at church, the pastor preached on the book of Numbers 14: 1-9, when the Lord delivered the children of Israel of the land of Egypt.

He got them out of Pharaoh's hand and they were still complaining.

This reminds me of people, including myself, who complain of minor things even after God has delivered them out of a big problem.

Lord, please help me to know that my life is a work in progress and that you have a plan for me. Help me to keep my eyes on you instead of issues in my life.

I'm In Love With A Canine!

Yup! This handsome guy right here stole my heart!
 This dog is like no other dog! He is so loving and happy and considerate. Which is why it's so sad that he's not feeling too well -- but he's a trooper! Another reason why I love him.

He belongs to a relative of mine and having him around makes me so happy. No matter what other dog may come after him, I could never forget him!

I am a huge animal lover! The first four legged little one I feel in love with was my kitty, snowbell(named after the cat in Stuart Little)

This cat was [had to bring her to a shelter because of a move :( ] the most adorable animal ever. She was so beautiful and friendly.

Once she decided that she liked you, that would be it, she would make sure you knew she liked you.
I know she's probably gone now, but she will always be my favorite cat!

I have a huge soft spot for animals -- a lot of people find it weird, but I never cared because animals don't judge...people do.

Until next time,
God Bless.

God's Word!

Mark 9:24 (NET)

"Immediately the father of the boy cried out and said, 'I believe; help my unbelief'."

This scripture comes from the man who asked Jesus, if He is able to do anything, please heal his son (of demonic possession).

He didn't really believe that Jesus could do everything, hence the if. I sometimes feel like this man...certain situation seem so big and impossible in my eyes, that I find myself thinking if, when it come to Jesus being my deliverer.

Lord, please forgive me and help my unbelief!
