I Will Give Thanks!

My heart is full with thanksgiving! This morning I woke up in pain, I felt it starting last night and this morning was not easy. Before I complained, before, I told God about my problems and how I am still waiting on his healing I gave thanks. I thanked him for this beautiful day although I didn't feel beautiful, I thanked him for his protection even though I did not feel protected, I thanked him for his love although I didn't feel his love, I thanked him for his goodness although I didn't feel it, And I thanked him for his Healing although I don't feel healed. Situations can make you feel God is not nigh to you, but see what doesn't matter is how I feel, what does matter is how God feels and what He says about me and my situation. I don't have to feel it to know the truth all I have to do is trust and believe in his word. My situation is not going to sway how I am going to walk because I know who is before me and behind me. I can give thanks and be exceedingly glad because I have the Father, the one who knows everything and has the power and authority to change my circumstance. Can I get an Amen? Give t hanks this morning for He is good and Worthy I mean more than worthy to be praised! He has made me glad for I will rejoice for He has made me Glad! When we start to think like God, there is no stopping me or you. No Devil in he'll can stop you! give thanks this morning.

Be Blessed, 

Beautiful Awakening Ministry

One of the Few Book Review

Image result for one of the few by jason ladd

This book was great.  I don't read many military books and when I was told given this title I thought oh boy I am not sure how this is going to go even though it is a Christian read.  I was surprised that it kept me wanting to read more.  I did not get bored.  I like when books or the lives of those that are Christians or seeking asks those questions as to me it lets me know that you are searching and you want to know the truth. It could be challenging at first but I am a reader and have been able to read William Faulkner books so it was not bad at all.  I love that this book was on faith and despite questions faith is what stands.
I love how I was taken through the military world and culture.  I was able to visually with the authors way of describing that time in his life. It was amazing how faith was found while living in a culture that makes it hard to have faith or lean on it at times. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I think anyone can enjoy this book and not just a christian.  I definitely believe that someone that is very skeptical  of Christianity can read this and respect this book. I am also a visual person which I believe most books readers have to be to love books, so I was incredibly blessed to be able to visually be taken on this road and on this Journey of faith.  If you are not asking those important questions to yourself and of God about your faith in where you are in life then you will never grow. I enjoyed this read.  

I received a free copy of this book for my honest Opinion.

The Light

Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life. 

 When I see all the things going on in the world, people going mad, having hearts that are not towards God people ask why is this happening? what is wrong with people?  I know I ask that question all the time when I see someone has hurt a child, has killed an innocent person, made remarks and comments about a group of people that you know you would never say or even think to say because it is so rude, disrespectful and almost un human like behavior. Being that I have a relationship with the Father I know where it is coming from but out of habit I just ask "What is wrong with this world"?  I know what the problem is and Jesus knew what the problem was and is with the world.  It is walking in darkness. Jesus said that "I am the light of the world and whoever follows me will NOT walk in darkness".  That is the problem the world is walking around without the light.  They can't see and are blinded.  The light is being taken out of the schools our children attend, out of entertainment, the light is being taken out of music we have for enjoyment, out of politics, out of our laws, morality everything.  Little by little every time I turn my head there is something that the light has given us to protect us and keep us safe is being taken out for man's own opinion and them trying to be the light for people, just like the pharisees were doing.  The light is even being taken out of some churches and groups that say they are Christians but refuse to put Christ where he belongs.  To them he was just a wise man, just a prophet, just someone with wisdom but he was so much more than that. If I can be just even a speck of the light Jesus was and is, I cam make a difference. I tend to do that by sharing the good news and encouraging people not to look at man, politics, presidents as the source to save our problems because they can't.  Only God can.  The things Jesus described as the signs of the end of time is not his doing or him causing people to do the things he spoke about that will happen, but it is because of the world selfishness and self righteousness to try and live life without the light. So for anyone reading this today are you living with the light? are you spreading news of the light?  How can you be a light? For someone that may be new to what I am saying the light I am speaking of is Jesus and He want to make his home within your hearts.  He want you to exchange your darkness whatever that may be for his Light.  He will shed the light you have been looking for.  He can change your heart, your desires, and your situation if you just entrust it to him.  Jesus goes on to say in John 8:32 that the truth will set you free.  Give the word a shot, you will not be disappointed.  If you would like to know more about who the God of the universe sent to pay for everything you are not and give you everything that he created you to be you can check the top of the site on the tab that says Salvation Prayer and it will give you more information.  We are more than happy to pray with you and celebrate with you, on your decision to follow the light of the world the one who knows everything thing that you are going through and everything that this nation is going through.  I pray God speaks to your heart and lead you where your trust is without borders in Him.
