God's Plans For Me

Hello to all my Christian Blogger Friends

It has been some time since I last posted,just wanted to let you all know what God has and is doing in my life.

I am in the process of selecting a Seminary school to attend just to get he basis and then on to studying so that I can be ordained. I am involved right now in a Bible Study class at a High Rise(Senior Citizens) on Saturday afternoons.

This past weekend I attend a Divine Encounter Women's Conference I was truly blessed. On Saturday the Prophetic team from IHOP (International House Of Prayer) came and gave each one of us a prophetic reading. We each received the recording of the word from God.

I am also getting ready to get a Women's Conference together called the Warring Women. I am just so thankful to God for giving me all these works for the body of Christ.

So my dear Beloveds please keep me in your prayers as I embark on these plans that God has given me as I stay on course of my Destiny.

Jesus Is All The World To Me

This morning the Lord woke me up with the hymn Jesus Is All The World To Me. I do not quite understand why He keeps putting the old hymns in my spirit. Maybe it is because when you hear these old hymns they touch the depths of your soul. As I laid in bed with this song playing in my mind it gave me such eternal peace.


Proverbs 18:24
A man who has friends must himself be friendly. But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Jesus is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all;
He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall.
When I am sad, to Him I go, no other one can cheer me so;
When I am sad, He makes me glad, He’s my Friend.

Jesus is all the world to me, my Friend in trials sore;
I go to Him for blessings, and He gives them over and o’er.
He sends the sunshine and the rain, He sends the harvest’s golden grain;
Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain, He’s my Friend.

Jesus is all the world to me, and true to Him I’ll be;
O how could I this Friend deny, when He’s so true to me?
Following Him I know I’m right, He watches o’er me day and night;
Following Him by day and night, He’s my Friend.

Jesus is all the world to me, I want no better Friend;
I trust Him now, I’ll trust Him when life’s fleeting days shall end.
Beautiful life with such a Friend, beautiful life that has no end;
Eternal life, eternal joy, He’s my Friend.

I pray my Dear Sistahs that this song gives someone some comfort today and the days to come through whatever circumstances that are being a challenge.

I Can Only Imagine

Today my Christian Sistahs I just want to post this song I can only Imagine. I sit this morning in meditation to my Heavenly Father with this song playing in the background.




I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk
By Your side
I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When Your face
Is before me
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
[Chorus]:
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
When that day comes
When I find myself
Standing in the Son
I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine, yeahh
I can only imagine
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine, yeahhh
I can only imagine
I can only imagine, yeah
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
When all i will do
Is forever
Forever worship you
I can only imagine...

Where God Leads

This morning I was on my way to have my annual mammogram at the usual imaging place. I made my turn parked the car and I was walking up to the building another lady was making her way to the entrance also. We spoke and then for some reason she began to stagger like she was about to fall. I immediately grabbed hold of her and opened the door. She thanked me and said for some reason I cannot get my balance. When we arrived in the waiting room she sat down and I went up to the receptionist desk to sign in. I told her that the lady sitting down there was having some trouble with her balance. There was a lady standing at the desk filling out papers and she responded and said oh that is my mother she is with me. I felt myself about to say something to her that probably would not have been very nice so I just left it alone. I then gave the receptionist my name and she was looking at the appointments and she told me that she could not find my name. Well come to find out ladies I was at the wrong imaging office.

Proverbs 16:9
A man's heart plans his way,But the Lord directs his steps.

I know where I was suppose to be,but God needed me to be there at that time to help someone.

So I arrived where I was suppose to be and got prepared for my examination. The technician took several pictures and left to show the doctor. When she returned she said that she had to take more images of my right breast there seem to be something showing up. So she proceed the whole time she is taking the images I am singing "God Will Take Care Of You". She takes those images to the doctor comes back and says he needs for you to have a sonogram done. Okay, we proceed and do that I am still singing too the Lord and thanking Him. When the technician gets done dong that she says I do not see anything irregular I shouted "Praise God". She took the pictures to the doctor and came back and said he wants to see you in 6 months.

I Thessalonians 5:16-22
Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Do not quench the Spirit.
Do not despise prophecies.
Test all things,hold fast what is good.
Abstain from every form of evil.

So today I stand in Thanks to my Heavenly Father for giving me the knowledge of His word,and trusting and believing in His promises. God Never Fails

God Makes No Mistakes

This past week I attended a funeral for a 5 month old baby boy named Geron Hall. His parents found him in the bed unresponsive. After many attempts to revive him by grandparents and paramedics he passed away. This child enter this world on December 19th with his twin sister Gerionna. For the 5 months of his life he was very ill,unable to keep formula down in which the doctors changed on several occasions. His parents who are young couldn't understand why this happened to them. I got a chance to talk with them and explain to them that God gave them 5 months with this child to Love and Nurture,but it was time for him to return back to his Heavenly Father. He is laying in the arms of our Heavenly Father now not sick anymore. I had to explain to them that if as long as they live their life according to His word that they will see their little Geron Hall again. At the cemetery I was holding Gerionna and just looking at her I couldn't help myself to wonder if some way did she have a sense that her twin brother was no longer with us here. I believe she does because they would sleep facing each other and I was told that sometimes they would be holding hands. That lets me know that she knows that he is not with her in the flesh but that he is with her in spirit. How Precious.

This past Tuesday we lost one of our Senior members at our church. Sistah Jean Stephens who has been battling cancer for sometime. Some years ago she went into remission,but about 8 months ago it came back. This was truly a woman of God,even through her chemo and discomfort with pain she always had a smile. She had not been able to attend church since December in which the last time she was at church was when I graduated form my Purpose En Route to Destiny class. When she came to that she was on oxygen then and very weak. I am sure that when the doctors told her that they had to take her off the chemo because there was nothing else they could do for her I imagine she told them that it is in God's hands and that it is well with my Soul.

I have learned alot from her. I always enjoyed listening to her testimonies on Sunday oh how blessed she was. She will be missed,but again God doesn't make a mistake. I believe that he came to her on Tuesday morning and whispered in ear and said You fought a good fight and you continued to stand on my promises never once did you doubt me. For this it is time to come home now your work is done here.

Wilted Soul

Yesterday I had left one of my plants out in the sun and so when I returned home this is what I found. My flowers were wilted and limp.




So I immediately put the flowers in the shade and gave them water. Within minutes they were back to normal.



It made me think about my life how wilted and limp I was until I fully gave my life to Christ.



In Isaiah 58:11 The Lord will guide you continually,

And satisfy your soul in drought,

And strengthen your bones;

You shall be like a watered garden,

And like a spring of water,whose waters do not fail.



Before we found the Lord we were wilted,limp,dry,thirsty,hungry and slowly dying. Oh,but when we finally recognized that it was God knocking at the door and we answered it and let him come in he made us refreshed and renewed.



So the next time you come across some wilted flowers,let them be a reminder to you how you looked before you opened your heart and let God enter in.

Proposed Mastectomy Law Change-Very Important

I received an email this morning that I felt I should share with everyone. This email is about a proposed Mastectomy Law Change. I am encouraging everyone who reads this to please sign the petition,and forward the information to everyone you know.


Proposed Mastectomy Law Change
(written by a surgeon);



I'll never forget the look in my patients eyes when I had to tell them they had to go home with the drains, new exercises and no breast. I remember begging the doctors to keep these women in the hospital longer, only to hear that they would, but their hands were tied by the insurance companies.

So there I sat with my patient giving them the instructions they needed to take care of themselves, knowing full well they didn't grasp half of what I was saying, because the glazed, hopeless, frightened look spoke louder than the quiet 'Thank you' they muttered.

A mastectomy is when a woman's breast is removed in order to remove cancerous breast cells/tissue. If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards. Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.

This Mastectomy Bill is in Congress now. It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important. Please take the time and do it really quick! The Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill is important legislation for all women.

Please send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times. If you're receiving this, it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote on this issue and send it=2 0on to others you know who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the 'drive-through mastectomy' where women are forced to go home just a few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition drive to show your support.. Last year over half the House signed on. PLEASE! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You need not give more than your name and zip code number. Your Zip Code will get your message to your Representative.



http://www.mylifetime.com/my-lifetime-commitment/breast-cancer/petition/breast-cancer-petition



This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends.



Copy and paste the following suggested messsage (or edit as may be desired) in the message block of the petition:



Please co-sponsor and support the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act.
