White Christmas!

     These are pictures of the Christmas Snow we had. The day after Christmas, some friends came over to our house, and we went sledding! I ran back to the house to get my camera and take some photos. Ginny, ( the black lab in the photos) loved the snow! We have a pond down from our house, and Ginny loves to swim in the pond, but when it's winter, it's usually frozen! So, instead of swimming in it, she tries to break through the ice! She's so funny! It was so nice to have a White Christmas!

                  Sometimes, I find myself getting discouraged over different things in my life. But, then I realize that the discouragement I'm feeling isn't from God. The devil wants you to feel discouraged , so you will take your eyes off of JESUS.

                  The Bible tells us to be thankful in the trials.  Read James 1:2-6.  In times of stress, it is important to have faith in Jesus. We need to have faith that he will help us when we are discouraged. He loves us and doesn't like to see us hurt. But, he knows that these trials are important to refine our characters!  Our characters are refined through the fires of temptation and discouragement.

                  I pray today that we all will look to Jesus when we feel discouraged!

                                                                Have a great day!

His Marvelous Creation!

              This summer, my family went on a vacation out west! We went to the Grand Canyon! It was amazing! It is so beautiful! How could this just happen? Evolutionists say that the Colorado River made the Grand Canyon over millions of years. I believe the Great Flood , as told in the Bible, formed this marvelous canyon. Sure , the Colorado River, probably has helped, but I don't think that it could have done this all by its self. I want to  believe what the Bible says! What about you?  I believe God created the heavens and the earth! ( Genesis 1:1)

Here are two of my favorite pictures of my dogs! They are so adorable! 
One of our dogs, Baby, disappeared over a year ago. We don't know what happened to her. But , I do know that God knows what happened. He watches over all of His creatures. None of His creatures die without Him knowing.  Matthew 10:29 says : " Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father."  Whatever happened to Baby, I know that God is in control! He knows best!

True Beauty ( or true handsomeness!)

In this modern society, looks are important to people. We strive to make ourselves more beautiful ( or handsome). But the worlds definition of beauty is marred. We don't define beauty as God does . He loves me for who I am ! He thinks I'm beautiful ,no matter what the world thinks. I am beautiful because I am His! He loves me so much! I am His child!

In the world, someone who is seen as beautiful has good looks, perfect weight, perfect hair , etc. But rarely do we look at a person's heart to define beauty.

Psalms 139:14: " I will praise thee ; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.". We are fearfully and wonderfully made by our creator, God! He thinks His creation is beautiful!

Now , that is true beauty!

Through Thick and Thin


        You've heard the saying : " a friend through thick and thin. " .  Not many people will be your friend through thick and thin. They can promise that they will, but when the situation comes , they might leave. But there is a friend who will always be there, a friend who you can always talk to. His name is Jesus! He is my BEST FRIEND! Is He yours?

        Sometimes you can't share your true feelings even to your closet friends or family members. But , Jesus will always listen! You can always talk to Him about everything! You can't keep a secret from Him! He knows everything! He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother!  ( Proverbs 18:24)

       He is my Best Friend! I love Him so much! I can tell Him anything! Will you ask Him to be your Best Friend today?

Psalms 27

      Here is Psalms 27. I am currently trying to memorize the whole chapter! Lord-willing I will!

Psalm 27

 1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
 2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
 3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
 4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
 5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
 6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
 7Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
 8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
 9Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
 10When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
 11Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
 12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
 13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
 14Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

    I love this psalm! It shows what faith David had in his Lord. We need to have the same faith!

A New Creature

    1 Corinthians 5:17 says : " Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

  Humans are horrible, filthy sinners. We can only be made clean through Christ. He can cleanse all unrighteousness from us. 1 John 1:9 : " If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." He will only do this if we ask Him! He wouldn't cleanse us of our sins, if we didn't repent , and ask Him to.

   Being cleansed isn't the last step. You have to live the way Jesus would. Live life the way He would have us to. Quit your nasty habits, and sins.  Be a witness to the world!

  Ask Jesus to cleanse you , and to present you as as witness to the world!

Though none go with me..............................


             Last night , I watched a movie entitled: " Though none go with me" . In the movie, the main character, Elizabeth, went through so many losses. She lost so many people close to her.  She made a commitment to the Lord, that she would follow Him no matter what.

             We need to make that same commitment to Him. We need to choose to follow Him, no matter what. Even  if we are the only ones who choose to follow Him. Though none go with me, still i will follow! No turning back!

              Do you choose to commit your life to Jesus? to follow Him no matter what? Make a commitment to Him today!

Whiter than Snow

   Here where I live, We're about to get snow, so I decided to write a blog on "Whiter than Snow."  God Bless!

   Psalm's 51:7 says: "Purge me with hyssop , and I shall be clean: wash me , and I shall be whiter than snow!"

   We are sinners. We are dirty , filthy, horrible sinners. How can we be whiter  than snow? Jesus can give us His white, clean, robe of righteousness, so we can be whiter than snow! But , we have to ask for it ! He died on the cross for us. He shed His blood so we might have eternal life! Praise the Lord! He loved the human race soooooooo much that He wanted to die so we could be saved , and live in Heaven with Him! 

    Lord,  I want to be whiter than snow! I want to be clean! Please give me your robe of righteousness, and make me clean! I love you , Lord!

Dreams and Wishes

      We all have those unfulfilled dreams that we're not sure will ever come true. Does God want us to have our dreams fulfilled? If they are according to His will. He wants to make us happy, but he doesn't want to give us something that will take away from our love for Him. He wants to be number 1 in our lives, not to be number 2 to something else we have.  

      Psalms 37:3-5 says : " Trust in the Lord ,and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land , and verily thou shalt be fed . Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in Him ; and He shall bring it to pass." 

   Commit your dreams to the Lord. Ask Him to fulfill your dreams according to His will, not your own. He always knows best!
