Rock Solid

It is human nature to want to be loved. In-fact some will go to great lengths to be loved and accepted by others. Often they compromise who they are, what they believe, and what they stand for all  for the sake of this acceptance.  They will accept love in any form to fill this need.

On the other hand there are those who are firm in their convictions, know what they believe, know they are loved and will not compromise even to gain the acceptance of others. They will not be moved.

If I were to choose a theme song for my life this would be it…

 

ARE YOU ROCK SOLID

Under the Influence

The influence of negativity is very contagious…I pray daily God will protect my heart and mind and allow me to remain positive and not succumb to the negativity which I am often bombarded by. Do I always measure up…NO ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

However, because I am soooo incredibly opposed to negativity and the influence it has on others, I am in constant pursuit of knowledge related to dealing with negative people. The article below does an excellent job of providing strategies for dealing with negative people. I wish I had read it yesterday…

How To Deal With Negative People – 10 Strategies.

God says to Love one another but…He never says we have to lower our standards and participate in their negativity…

And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

Are You Under the Influence…

“Wild Horses Couldn’t Drag Me Away”

I am sure you have heard the saying “Wild Horses Couldn’t Drag Me Away” meaning…I ain’t moving!!! Paul is telling the church in Rome…

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nether angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39

If you have Jesus in your heart, Not even Wild Horses can drag you away from the Love Of God…

OH HOW HE LOVES US… 

I love this song…Enjoy!!!

The New Way

Rules…Rules…Rules!!!

Do you find sometimes all the rules and regulations can snuff out the joy of  worship. You hear phrases like…

  • We’ve Always done it this way
  • Well, typically we…
  • Hmmm we have never done it that way before
  • You have to…
  • We don’t ever do that
  • You can’t do it that way…
  • It has to be this way…

And On, And On, And On…The Rules go!

Last night while watching the Passion Play at First Baptist Church Brazoria, I was reminded of how many rules people had to follow in order to have a relationship with God…Living a life  bound by Law!

But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of written code. Romans 7:13

Today, there are still those that choose to live a life bound by law, rules, and regulations…

I thank God for the new way of the Spirit! There is so much freedom and release living a Spirit lead life!!!

Today I am thanking God for the “New Way”

Love Lee ❤

To Receive the Praise You Crave

Today’s media influenced world puts so much emphasis on appearance. You can’t be thin enough, your makeup has to be perfect, your clothes from the finest of stores, and every hair on your head perfect…

You feel you must hang with the “In” crowd and your interests become their interests. You seek their approval wanting desperately for them to recognize and accept you and will do just about anything to receive that approval.

You feel, you will be held in high esteem by others if you walk right, talk right, look right, and hang with the right people. Desiring desperately to receive favour in society.

Take a breath…I have good news!!! You don’t have to be all that!!!

Here is the answer…

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. – Proverbs 31:30

To receive the praise you crave…

Fear the Lord

Live  a life that brings Him Glory and Honor…remove the idols of vanity and society and put Him first in your life…

Who Would Have Thought

When I was a little girl, I didn’t have dreams of being a wife, a mother, or nurse. Nope, I was going to be a pharmacist just like my Pawpaw and Uncle Jack.

High school was centered around academics. I pushed myself taking accelerated classes and studying non-stop. Then I took the class that changed my life…Chemistry. I remember wondering why…why…why; Why do I need to learn the periodic table, why??? I called my Uncle Jack and asked, “Why?” and he said “Lee, you don’t need to know why; just memorize it and move on. Chemistry is the foundation you need to be a pharmacist” 

Well, I gave this a lot of thought and realized perhaps I was not supposed to be a pharmacist because I needed to know why! I didn’t want to memorize…I wanted to know!!! Little did I know this concept would be the beginning point for a new path for my life. You see, God had a different plan for my life. He knew the desires of my heart before I did and redirected my steps. I didn’t know my way on this path but I do believe God has directed my every step.

Today, thanks to God, I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a nurse…Who would have thought?

“The Lord says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.’ Psalm 32:8,

Are You Allowing God To Be In Control and Guide You Along the Best Pathway For Your Life?

Make An Impact

“Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 12:25 (NASB)

There are days my heart is weighed down, times when I feel a heaviness but find all it takes is a good word from a friend, a smile from a stranger, a hug from a co-worker and my frown turns upside down.

Be a blessing to someone today…

  • Give a compliment
  • Wrap your arms around a shoulder
  • Throw a smile across the room
  • Speak positive words

Make a positive Impact on Your World Today for Him!!!

He Is My World

In a recent communication with a precious friend, I shared my itinerary from now through the month of June…She commented, “You need a personal assistant”…

That comment has rolled through my head many times!!! Then like a lightening bolt flashing before my eyes it came to me…I have one!!!

Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.Psalms 54:4

Without His presence at this time in my life, I would be a total failure…

He makes my paths straight

He goes before me

He fights my battles

He keeps me singing

He is my light

He Is My World!!!
