The Name of Jesus...
The most beautiful name
The most powerful name
The most wonderful name
Nothing compares to this name
The name above all names
That name is Jesus Christ, my King!
It was New Years' Eve during Kenneth's Copeland's service when I first heard this song. I just know that it's the kind of music video I want to share on my blog for the New Year.
I pray that this song will gain entrance even just at the door to your heart. Once that happens, its glorious power breaks all silence and you want to proclaim and begin to shout and Praise His name in Worship.
So I have shut down my craving to watch Netflix movies and other television dramas & shows that feed my carnal soul. It is hard to fast from such a craving in the flesh but I won't have it any other way. For I see the difference. I have more time to spend cooking dinner and more time listening to the Word of God. It is true that what you feed yourself and what you surround yourself with show what's your truth. And believe me, it's not easy not to watch a classic movie or Award ceremonies & etc. Also, had cut off my trips to the department stores where I literally buy every markdown clearance. Not eating cakes, chocolates, pies and candies for 21 days is the hardest. However, God has been mindful of what I'm doing. He sees my soul. That I'm trying hard not to fall into temptation. It feels good though to breakthrough from the wrong things or desires.
I praise God for hanging out with me through all of these...
At the end of our corporate Fast at my Church, I know my reward is greater--that is, my faith in what he did and finished/completed at Calvary Cross more than two thousand years ago is at the very heart of who I am...Redeemed.
Love all of you that inspires me to write, share and create beautiful moments with you especially this year, 2017!

New Year's Eve for me was a precursor to what I would love to continue doing and more to it for the rest of my 2017.
Yesterday morning, I and my good friend Senaida and sister in Christ went to IHop for breakfast. Sometimes it's just so good to be spontaneous, going with your gut feeling with the right friend. The place was packed with families and friends eating breakfast together. For me that's a very good sight to enthrone in your heart...
As always, I and my friend had a fabulous time talking about our families, about God, sharing scriptures that are most relevant in our lives. It felt like there's more freedom within to express our Christian beliefs now that we have Pres. elect Donald Trump and his new administration that embraces life and promises to make America great again. I believe that as long as he keeps seeking wisdom from our Almighty God.
After breakfast, I went for a run at the park for 2.5 miles then vacuum the inside of my car and power- washed it. Again, the car- wash place was packed. Still I felt that surge of strength continuing to emanate from me that I still had so much strength to clean my house; put everything in place. Praise God for good health!
In the evening, I went with Senaida and her baby grandson for a prayer at Faithpoint church. It was a very Blessed evening. Thanking that husband and wife team who prayed for our petitions to go to the throne of God.
Watching Kenneth Copeland and hearing him preach the Word of God at the comfort of my home with Zenny and Jayden was a threshold while awaiting for the countdown.
I pray for consistency, deliverance from things that are not pleasing to God, be more obedient to the Holy Spirit's promptings and be a better ambassador and a vessel for His kingdom.
Our lives are fleeting; we are not promised of tomorrow but only Today we can choose Him to be our personal Savior and Lord of our life.
Happy Happy New Year Everyone! I pray that 2007 is the year for sowing and reaping the benefits of Obedience.
