Happy 2013






I am so excited about the New Year!  This year on Beautiful Awakening has been great!  In 2012 we said that this was the year of opportunity.  We had the opportuinty through messages and devotions to get to know God better, get into a closer relationship with him so that he can began to heal us through our pain, our hardships, and troubles.  For me 2012 was the year of Opportunity for God to get some stuff to us so that we can be successful.  His word is what empowers us to be great women of God.  I had the opportunity to draw close to God and I did.  Sometimes it was much harder than others.  But like the bible says who's report are you going to believe.  I belive the report of the Lord.  God has truly blessed me and this ministry.  I belive all the prayer requet and praise reports that have come in God is working in the midst of them.  I have been lifting you all up and praying for you just as I pray for my own family.

Now for 2013
 As I have been seeking and praying for my ministry I asked God what is this ministry to do this year.  How are we to be a blessing this year.  This year is the year of Greatness!  last year was the year of opportunity but the opportunity to be Great follows.  We can all be great.  God has given all of us the ability to be great.  When the diciples asked Jesus who is the greatest?

 Luke 9:46
Then a dispute arose among them as to which of them would be greatest. 47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a little child and set him by Him, 48 and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me. For he who is least among you all will be great.”

See when we are talking about being great or greatness there will always be an arguement.  That is with the spirit and Flesh.  See God says that we can be great but the Enemy will tell you, no you are not great, that greatness is not in you.  He will lie you by making you look at your current situation.  What things currently look like.  But greatness can be acheived.  He is possible.  It is not in material things, earthly things but it is when you come humble and as if he is truly needed and can't be without.  He is needed and we can't be great or have an success with out him.   See right now you may be saying to yourself that you do not see greatness.  That i am not speaking to you, oh but I am.  See the end of this scripture is the breakthrough, it is what is going to cause you to have hope.  It says For he who is least among you all will be great.  That simply means those who are humble enough is great.  See they all were full of pride arguing saying I am great, no I am great!  But then they turned to Jesus to ask him.  They all wanted to be great.  You can all be great and we will be great!  This is the year of GREATNESS!!!!


May God bless each and everyone one of you and I look forward to a great year in this ministry.  We are all going to make it together and Greatness is in us.  I pray for Good Health, Protection, Strength, Endurance, and Love for you all.

 
HAPPY 2013

My foes...you still glorify

As I lay in my bedroom reading God word before I go to sleep. I come across psalm 3 says how many are my foes! How many rise Up against me! Many are saying of me God will not deliver him. But you Lord are a shield around me my Glory, the One who lifts my head high. I am meditating on this because when i think of how imperfect. I am and still lifts me high. He still protects. Me and consider me. He still shows favor and bless me. Oh what a mighty God we serve. When people tell me I stand out i know its only because Of his glory in my life. I know that if it was not for him I would stand out for all the wrong reasons. Thank you Father for lifting my head high. Its because of my love for you that. Even though I have less than five hours to sleep I still want to Glorify you. You are awesome. Toccara

You are predestined For Greatness






What if someone told you that you are predestined to have 1.5 million dollars by a certain age. That will be something great to look forward to. You will be planning your life, what you want, what you would like to do with the money. You would be thinking of where you want to live etc. You would be happy, no matter what obstacles came your way you would brush them off  and have hope because you know a better future is to come, You would say the best is yet to come. Well this is what the bible says to us
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love
Ephesians 1:4 NIV
The Amplified version puts it like this :
Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.

That means that no matter what I am going through God has already said that I am great! He says there is no such thing as I am nothing or I can’t do it! You were hand-picked by the creator, he has already made your future happen, you are just walking into it! So make plans today about your calling, your gifts, what you are going to do, how you want to set it up because it is already yours it has been predestined for you. Pick out the colors, the floor plan , the people you want to be apart of it , those you want to serve because guess what, He chose you to do the very thing you know he has called you to do. He did not call anyone else he called you. He said your name, gave you the vision so walk with it. Don’t take lightly what God has created you for. He created you with a plan and a purpose. You are what he is looking for you are predestined!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God Bless,

Help Finalize Operation Handmade Blessing Holiday Outreach






As the time is approaching for Operation Handmade Blessing to have it's Holiday edition, we are so excited.  When I put the announcement that I was collecting items again for a second time, the responses were great!  I have people all over the world that wanted to help and were just as excited as I am.  There were people that do not make handmade items that contacted me but wanted to help so they have donated items to Operation Handmade Blessing.  I want to thank all that have been sending in items and those that are still in the process of shipping items out.  It means so much to me that their are people sharing my passion for the elderly and are taking action!  You are truly a blessing.  I am forever blessed by your generosity.  I wanted to speak to those that may want to help but do not handmake items.  There is still time to help.  Right now in the final stages I am still needing gift bags, to put the items in, a few cards, wrapping paper, tissue paper, some cards, and puzzle books since they love to do word searches.  Usually I come out of pocket for these items but this year we are giving out so much more that I would love the help of those that can.  There is a donation button on my side panel through paypal.  Your gifts in any amount will help with the final stages.  I am needing a donation of 50.00 by December 18th.  Thank you so much in advance for your donation.
