"God Is My Refuge" Women's March Conference

Be Strong and Courageous

If I could speak for all the women that attended the conference, there's no denying that the primary "take away" is the wisdom that Debra in the book of Judges represents. I call it relative hierarchy in position but in God's eyes, it is the spiritual sense of order. However, it is not easy for some of us to claim and stand on how God sees us first and manifest that if we don't even know what our specific calling is. Not operating under the anointing of our gifting will leave us perplexed, unsatisfied, vacillating, and unsure.

No wonder that we sometimes displace our worthiness and righteousness to substance abuse, to junk food, to associating with unequally yoked people, and oftentimes succumb to men's cloak raiments if you know what I mean...

BUT...with God and with the help of godly people, we learn how to sharpen our instincts and use it wisely in all circumstances. We can smell from afar the devices that the enemy employs upon us. We have the Word of God that is sharper that the two-edged sword and it pierces the soul. 
What a real gift that is to be known as spiritual daughters of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.We just have to pray steadfastly with a grateful heart and that nothing can ever define us except to how God sees us, a masterpiece!

Thank You Lord for reminding us that our life is identified with you first; and that you loved us first, unconditionally.
It never ceases to amaze me what a grander scale fellowshipping means spiritually--(1st night of the women's conference)Add caption
Here we go on the second night of the women's conference; same background and a more subtle/reserved smile.
Another special way of paying tribute to ourselves--enjoying one another's giftings
and callings with the Grace of God. (last day of the women's conference)

"The Most Beautiful Name, Jesus, The King of Kings and Lord of Lords"

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!

"Happy New Year; 2017"

New Year- Psalm 65:11

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.

"Merry Merry Christmas"

Add caption
Five days before Christmas, my eldest sister took this picture of me at our mom's house. You can never tell that I was under the weather; that I had all the flu symptoms except for a high fever. Mind you, I just had the flu shot, too, last week.
All is well now. My mom who has been sick for 7 weeks now had finally come to church this morning for the Christmas service. I'm better, too and thank God for restoring us our good health and for keeping the entire family under his hedge of protection and covering.

This Christmas, I stayed on a budget. Didn't really buy anything for me but, instead, has focused on buying presents that are practical and functional. I believe in saving oneself to mounting debts incurred from buying gifts disproportionately. Thus, I did manage to do that.

Thank you so much for reading my pieces of writing even when my writing is lacking substance. I tend to nurse my circumstances fo my inability to overcome a weakness. May all of you had a Merry Merry Christmas and I pray that 2017 will be a better year for journeys that will take us closer to the understanding that what matters is doing what God put in our hearts.  

I pray that if anyone of you that is in some kind of darkness or under siege of trials, we have a God that heals and provides. That should be comforting enough to know...and much more knowing Him!

Billy Gilman's "I Surrender..."

   Tonight I find myself mesmerized by the way he insanely killed the song-- to the roof!
There's no ceiling here when it comes to Billy delivering a song.
No kidding, I'm an avid fan of Celine Dion. Her trademark is holding that note the longest without cracking her voice every time she sings. This guy is the same way. This performance is beyond phenomenal. I would be truly very very happy if he will win The Voice with Adam Levine.
It would be a massive, colossal mistake for Billy not to be crowned Season 11 winner of the Voice.
And it would do no justice to Adam Levine's gifted coaching. It would be against what the show, The Voice stands for if Billy doesn't win it all.
Just saying...

"Prayer, the Lifeline to the Heavenly God..."

My deepest congratulations to both of them and to all who voted for them. Add caption

Thank you to all my Christian brothers and sisters who cast their support for now-elect, Pres. Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
It's so funny to think that all these major television networks were stunned by how Donald Trump has defied the odds of winning. As I said earlier, pollsters are not reliable. Voters suddenly became wise for their hearts were pierced with politicians had constantly bullied their trust and hope
 for a decent life. Donald Trump is not a preacher but his stand against abortion, his strong faith in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, his great support to the nation of Israel, his fight for our Constitutional rights including our religious rights, his plan to repeal Obamacare, and his good judgment on Mike Pence will not only bring Hope but make our Hopes a reality. Thus, he earned my vote.
All of these commentators have forgotten one thing: What put Donald Trump as our Commander-in-Chief is the vigil of prayers that continuously go out for him and Mike Pence. When are they going to learn that Praying to our Heavenly, Sovereign God moves the hearts of the undecided to a clear path to victory! Praying is a hearty action and it ushers miracles to happen.
I'm overwhelmed with love and praise to God who deserves all the Glory.
Thank You, Jesus

There's joy unspeakable to know that Billy Graham who just turned 98 years old the night before election day got to see this: Hope may not be flickering anymore for America.I thank God for his servant's heart for the lost souls. And I know that he prayed for God's will to be done on Donald Trump's becoming the next President, as the majority of us did. We continue to pray...

Luxurious Pics for Fall/Autumn Decorating...

 Each day I pray earnestly to God that may the body of Christ believers will go out and vote unanimously for the candidate that will help take
prayer back to schools, and will sanction a marriage between a man and a woman.
I have never been so nervous in my life till now--fearing that our constitutional rights, religious rights,
and most of all the right to choose life to those who can't.
We are armored with the truth, prophecies, promises in the Book of Life--the Holy Bible. If we fail to exercise and abide by its truth, we surely had succumbed to what we deserve as to the floodgates of shaking and reshaping the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It will be much harder to for us to win lost souls for God's kingdom. God help us. God, have mercy on us. We've been callous, weak and weary for our stand on your Truth, myself included. I sometimes forget the power that is given to us Christians; "that ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid." Matthew 5;13-14 KJV

I do encourage you all to go and watch a video called "The Continental Divide" by pastor Tommy Nelson. Compelling, True, Very informative and "a must- hear message..." Also, don't forget to tune in with Franklin Graham the night before the election, Nov.08 Live @ Facebook 9:00 ET. What a way to celebrate our America's beloved Pastor, Billy Graham who's turning 98th that day of Prayer. Happy Happy Birthday Pastor Billy Graham!

I had taken a pause from the reverberating nuance of the upcoming election. I already cast my vote. My conscience and my heart reside in tranquillity. So I had moments to browse some elegant pictures this afternoon-- that I wish I could have in my own place. However, it's okay to immerse into the mode of appreciation of these awe-inspiring fall decorating...
These are truly mesmerizing!
Thank you, Lord even for this transient moment. But only you  God can give us the eternal joy and peace that we need. That I know for sure.
