seasons of change



Well we are about to embark on a new journey or new chapter in our life and it scares the death out of me. I have to keep reminding myself that this is God's plan and and all will work out. My husband took a new job and we will have to move to a new town where we will not know anyone. We will be leaving our church that we made a home in because it is the first and only church that ever made me feel that way, it deeply saddens me. So please pray for us over the next few months that this will all work out as it is God's will.

On that note we are trying to get ready for the holidays Thanksgiving and Christmas, as i have to remind myself for this is God's plan for me and after everything he endured for me alone is so worth all of this. His ultimate sacrifice for us was he gave his life for our sins, He was beaten, crucified, buried and then arose again for our sins. So on that note why am i so scared of making this change, God was never scared or worried about what was going to happen to him so therefore why should a worry. I should look at this as he is giving me an opportunity to spread my wings and to help spread his word to people. I am to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ because there are so many people out there that don't know who he is. So God has a pla
n for me in this.

I hope everyone enjoys this holiday season and may God bless you all

the miracle that proves God DOES exist




On sunday we had a miracle performed by God himself and so i just have to share................



As we walked out of the church doors on Sunday and got headed down the interstate to pick up my grand kids the cell started to ring and it was my best friend calling to tell me the fire department is at our house and that my back yard was on fire flames were high all i could think was that my house was going to burn down please Jesus don't let that happen.............we prayed and prayed and everyone at church prayed by the time we got home which almost 45 min later the fire chief says "I'm not sure i can explain to you why your house is still standing my response was DUH it was a God thing." the fire stopped at one point at the side of the house and moved to the back yard came up the back side of our house where there is smoke damage and jumped over a propane tank by our back door and shifted to another part of the yard instead of my house.......It was as if
God were standing right there directing it which way to go. Our neighbor was burning in their back yard and left the fire unattended and the wind picked up and began to blow our way............ by the time it was all over and i had calmed down my only response to these kids well grown kids known as my neighbors was " if you guys don't believe in God just step back here in my back yard and ill prove to you that he does exist and why he exist.............Needless to say they are going to church on Sunday..................






Moral of this story is my faith in God is so much stronger than before and i cant waite to start sharing the world of the gospel...........anyone who reads this and isnt quite sure that God exist feel free to email me and we can chat i can prove to you that he does and what it takes to be saved and become a child of God............http://lissalynn2006@aol.com

The cost of sin



How many of us have lied just a tiny bit to cut corners? Maybe to get a child into an amusement park at a discounted price? The cashier gave me too much change back but it was her fault she doesn't know how to count, or how about lying about a child's age to get a free meal or a discounted meal. Whatever the case may be because there are many to pick from and I'm sure that at one time in our life we have ALL been guilty of this sin.

What makes this sin any more different that any other sin or less of the sin of murder? Sin is sin no matter what the sin is. Sin is serious-all sin. We tend to categorize into more and less tolerable categories. The truth is all sins lead to death; all sin is abominable in God's sight. And for all our sin, even the littlest lie or tiniest cover-up, Jesus died. Sin actually made us enemies with God. He is perfect in all His ways; sin can not exist in his presence. So we in our sinful state, we are eternally separated from Him. But God made a way for us to come to him, through the sacrifice of His perfect, sinless Son. " He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2Corinthians5:21)". Therefor because of the great price that God paid to put our sin to death, we live in gratitude for the debt He has paid on our behalf. We are to obey Him, not out of fear or compulsion, but as a response to the astounding love, grace, mercy HE the God almighty has freely given to us.

Dear Jesus, thank you for paying the price for our sins. Help us to live in the light of the sacrifices You made out of love for us. Forgive us for where we have failed you. Thank you for our salvation. Thank you for paying the ultimate price for us. In you sweet precious name we pray
Amen!
