Happy New Year ( The Year of Opportunity) 2012


As we approach a brand new year I would like for you to reflect on 2011? What are some of the things that you accomplished. What are some of the things you wanted to accomplish but did not. I try to make sure I do a self check daily to make sure for one that I am always in alignment with God and that I am being the best me that I can be. As we are all humans there is something that we can fix and make better everyday. Make sure you are making the right decisions were you are spending your new year, who you are spending it with and what you are doing. This is a time to be thankful to God that a whole year had passed and everything that we went through did not kill us but it made us stronger to face another year. Don't let what you let keep you from God in 2011 keep from in in 2012. Don't let the same mistakes take over your future. Don't let your past hurts keep you from loving in 2012. It would have been so easy to sit here a give a teaching but I want to just speak from the things that I am focusing on when this new year within myself. When I look over this year and see all that God has done I become glad. I being to rejoice that I overcame because he was with me. I made it though all because of him. I know that I am nothing without him. I know that I have been forever changed since 2010 because of his grace and mercy. I am not excited about all the things you do for new years like hang out with the family, get a couple of days off of work, eat some good food, or attend a great gathering but I am excited because I have God to carry me into another year, I have him to thank for all that he has done for me all year and that there is none like him. Do a self check and see what you can do better, how in 2012v you can spend more time with God, how you can be more of a servant to him. How you can learn to trust him more. With everything you do put your trust in God! have enough faith to believe him for year 2012. This year is the year of Opportunity!

Encouragement!


 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23

It is so wonderful to know that the one who has promised us something is faithful to go all the way through for our sake.  Hold fast without wavering!  That is the most important part, while you are holding on do swerve to the left or to the right.  Hold on to those things that you know God has promised you.  The one main thing he has promised is eternal life which is the greatest of them all but he wants us to have our hopes in dreams in him.  I know that he is faithful even when it seems like he may not be there.  God is almost  never early but he is never late.  He is always right on time.  Someone need to hear this today and me being one of them.  I need to hear not to swerve, not to give up, not to fall in to the pit, not to speak negative thoughts.  Go on to the next scripture.  Call your brothers and sisters in Christ meet with them to have a time to fellowship and help to spur one another up.  This is what having brothers and sisters in Christ is for.    Encourage someone today let them know that all is going to be well, to keep the faith in God,  Pray with each other  Be glad rejoice He IS FAITHFUL!!!!  I hope that this little devotional has helped you today.  Please let me know if there is anything I can pray with you for.  I am here as your sister in Christ.  I encourage you today with Hebrews 10:23!  God Bless!

You are The Proverbs 31 Woman




Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is right for him.”
Gen 2:18 (GW) God's Word

And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Gen 2:18 (KJV) King James Version

No matter what way you put it Ladies we are very important.  It is not good for man to be alone. We were made for a purpose. We are needed by man. We were created to help Adam meet the needs of the animals and the needs of the garden of Eden. Adam could not meet his own needs by himself. We are needed to help our Husbands be all that he can be. He is only part of what he is created to do and be without us. He can only reach his full potential when he is joined together with his wife and become one flesh.

I know some of us may have ill feelings towards thinking you are important.  Some have endured pain and suffering from their Husbands.  Some may have been told they are not worth anything or they are good for nothing.  So may have been asked why were you even born?

For others sometimes life becomes such a routine where you feel that your husband only needs you to cook dinner, wash clothes, take care of the kids, and satisfy his physical needs, But the bible clearly tells us that We are needed.  That this world does not function without our existence.  When God created everything that was good and excellent he still felt there was that special touch missing.  Something that will bring everything together.  Then he thought of YOU!  he thought of taking a small piece of man making Woman.  He would give you everything you need to become the proverbs 31

 Who can find a wife with a strong character? She is worth far more than jewels. 11 Her husband trusts her with {all} his heart, and he does not lack anything good. 12 She helps him and never harms him all the days of her life. 13 “She seeks out wool and linen {with care} and works with willing hands. 14 She is like merchant ships. She brings her food from far away. 15 She wakes up while it is still dark and gives food to her family and portions of food to her female slaves. 16 “She picks out a field and buys it. She plants a vineyard from the profits she has earned. 17 She puts on strength like a belt and goes to work with energy. 18 She sees that she is making a good profit. Her lamp burns late at night.
19 “She puts her hands on the distaff, and her fingers hold a spindle. 20 She opens her hands to oppressed people and stretches them out to needy people. 21 She does not fear for her family when it snows because her whole family has a double layer of clothing. 22 She makes quilts for herself. Her clothes are {made of} linen and purple cloth. 23 “Her husband is known at the city gates when he sits with the leaders of the land. 24 “She makes linen garments and sells them and delivers belts to the merchants. 25 She dresses with strength and nobility, and she smiles at the future. 26 “She speaks with wisdom, and on her tongue there is tender instruction. 27 She keeps a close eye on the conduct of her family, and she does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her children and her husband stand up and bless her. In addition, he sings her praises, by saying, 29 ‘Many women have done noble work, but you have surpassed them all!' 30 “Charm is deceptive, and beauty evaporates, {but} a woman who has the fear of the Lord should be praised. 31 Reward her for what she has done, and let her achievements praise her at the city gates.”
Prov 31:10-31 (GW)


You are special unique in all your ways.  You are equipped to do wonderful things.  No other create duplicates you.  You are anointed to make all things in your home come together!  I am so preaching to myself right now.  It is so amazing how God gives you a word that you think is for the rest of the world and it is indeed for you too!

You have what it takes to be the proverbs 31 woman.  He was  giving to you before the creation of the world. 

If  you are looking for break though in your marriage just think and study who God made you to be.  Forget about what the other person is doing, forget about their faults, or their attempts to bring you down.  What did your Father in Heaven say about you?  Think of who you are and not what people are making you out to be.  Sometimes those closest to us can make us feel that we have little worth in areas but focus on God.  What did he say. What gifts did he give you as a Woman.  When you start to look at this and study it you will be changed from the inside out.

You Help Will be Great

Operation Handmade Blessings Is Helping in Sponsoring The Holiday Outreach For Ybor City Rehabilitation and Health care Facility.  This year we are giving out items to these men and women who may not have a family to receive from this holiday season.  No one to come and say that they care or love them.  To get a gift from the heart.  So I am partnering with People of Hope Ministries to provide to a gift bag with items that they can use.   Of course all these items can be bought but the purpose of Handmade Blessings is to make items that you could buy out the store and use your gift to help someone.  This is a great opportunity to give back.  If you will look at the acceptable items tab you will see a list of things that we have made and given out before.  The last time I did this it was a huge success and the smiles are their faces were great.  Please e-mail me if you are interested I will give me more details if needed.  I would like to have these items in my hand by December 20th if possible so that we can distribute them out and be a blessing to these wonderful men and women.  I think it is important to take care of the elderly.  I consider it a blessing to live such a long time as these people have and I want to help take care of them for the remainder of the time that they are here.


If you have some items that are already made like items you received from Swap that you are not using.  They can be put to great use.  I posted this on the Operation handmade blessings site but did not post it here.  I have some ladies from my Job that will be helping me out and you too can join me and be a blessing.  IF  you have time to make one item and send it to me so that I can have it by the 20th that would be great.  For those that saw this on the Operation Handmade Blessings site and have reached out to me by e-mail thanks I have replied back to you with the address to send the items.  Thank You all so much for your continued support.

Thanks, Toccara

Things Only God Can Do




Luke 8: 43
And a woman who had suffered from a flow of blood for twelve years and had spent all her living upon physicians, and could not be healed by anyone,    44Came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His garment, and immediately her flow of blood ceased.

This story is so simple and to the point but I love it.  This woman was bent over with an issue. an issue that had haunted her for twelve years.  No one could help, no one had any answers for her.  She went to sleep and woke up for twelve years with the same issue.  She was weak, mentally tired and at this point without hope.  Until she met Jesus that is.

Some of us have an issue that we have been dealing with for a long long time.  It may not be a physical issue but a heart issue, a trust issue, a loving heart issue, and patient issue, a lying issue, a doubt issue.  We have had it so long that we believe that it is who we are and what life is going to be like forever.  In some cases it can be who we are forever if we don't change it.


This woman found that the man they were calling the Messiah was in town and she did her very best do get to him.  There was a huge crowd and everyone trying to get to the same Man called Jesus.  I verse 42 the word of God said that the crowds almost crushed him.  In that crowd was this woman.  Waiting for him to come by her path so that she can get what she know only He and He alone could give her and that was her healing.  You may have to stand in the crowd and almost get knocked over to receive what you know God can give you.


People stand in large crowds at concerts, to get items that will be on sale for an considered a once in a life time deal.  But when will you stand in the crowd for your once in a life time opportunity to be healed of your issue?  We need to believe our  healing is important enough to stand in the crowd and wait for what we know can deliver us.  Don't give up on yourself and don't believe that the things that are hindering your relationship with others and your relationship with God is yours to keep.  Although the woman with the issue of blood had her issue for twelve years she did not consider that this was her and she did not settle.

When Jesus came by she touch him and was healed immediately.  What no one could do for her in twelve years Jesus did in an instant.  Glory be to God!  She forced her way through and touched just the fringe of her breakthrough. 

Healing and restoring you is some thing only God can do.  He alone can take are of issues that are new and old.  Things that you may sit and think you can never get past you can get past them.  God is waiting for you to reach out to him.  No one or nothing can take the pain the hurt, the disappointment away.  God can remove all that with his peace, his love, and his word.  He sent the word from above to come and set us free.  Let your Heavenly Father Do what only he can do.  Don't trust someone else to do his job because when you trust someone to do another persons job it never get's done right or at all.  I hope you ladies and some gentlemen that visit the site got some thing out of this and please send your prayer request in.

Thanks,
Minister Toccara
