NEW FRIENDS

Since becoming a christian i have found many new friends that i can actually say are my friends not acquaintances. i absolutely love some of the women i go to church with. I belong to Trinity Baptist Church in Lakeport, TX. I am a part of the choir and i absolutely love our women's ministry and the women in. I attended a girls night out back in march the i wrote about in an earlier post where the holy spirit moved through me that night. I then had realised that i hadn't let go of some of the anger i still had bottled up inside. My friend gave me some scriptures to look up and study and i wanted to share them with you as well.

Psalms 139
God is all-seeing-all-knowing, all-powerful, and everywhere present. God does know us. God is with us,and his greatest gift is to allow us to know him. He has examined are hearts and knows everything about us. He knows what we are going to say before we say it. He knows our every thought. Yet we don't have the knowledge to understand why he is ALWAYS, Always there with us WE got for a walk and guess what he is there following behind us. He created us to be very complex individuals and he knows us inside and out. He is always there to protect us. HE is there even if we stumble and fall he once again is there to help lift us back up.


Isaiah 41:10
Don't be afraid, for I am with you.
Don't be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen and help you.
I will hold you with my victorious right hand.

John 14:1-4
Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.
There is more than enough room in my Fathers home. If this were not so,would I. not have told you that i am going to prepare a place for you?
When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.

So i feel like whenever i am scared and not knowing why i am even alive I now know that God had a place for me, and when its ready he will take me home and not before.
When i am scared of the darkness i know that God is there to make me unscared.

Thank you lord for the wonderful friends i have made that help me to walk in your path.

the book Daisy chain

oh my gosh is all i can say, if you haven't Read this book you should put it on your list of things to do because its wonderful. i started reading it and just couldn't put it down. I'm so ready for the next one and then finally the third one. its about love and family secrets and abuse and God all wrapped up into one book. its rated as christian. its advertised on my blog because its by far one of the best books i have read in a long time. i put Mary right up there with Beth Moore shes just so breath taking. once again its called daisy chain by Mary E. DeMuth. i know that Hastings and books a million in Longview Texas both have it Hastings had to order for me and it was so worth the wait.






much love to all
have a blessed day

a cracked egg

Well, Easter is coming & there is talk around here about dying eggs soon. Fina posted something this morning about her being a cracked egg and that too got me to thinking............hmmm...when I think about a carton of eggs at the store - we open the carton to see if there are any cracked or broken eggs, because that is what we don't want . We don't want to buy a carton of eggs with a cracked egg or two in it. We look at that carton to make sure all the eggs appear perfect on the outside & then that is the carton we will accept -- kind of like how we pick & choose our friends or the people in our lives.WOW!! In the carnal life there are those that look at the people in this same way.The judge them by their flesh! - unforgiving of a crack or a flaw. Aren't we glad that God can see past our cracks, flaws & that he protects us when we are broken. I am thankful that my friends (who are also Christ minded) can do this too. They look past my cracks, my flaws...I am a cracked egg but yet accepted! Thank you to all my friends!


this was written by a friend sherri we will call her and it really got me to thinking as well we (most of us) pick our friends this way like we pick our eggs. if they are cracked or botched just a little bit we want no part of them and this is so wrong. Thank GOD he didn't pick us that away, because we are all sinners and we are all cracked is someway form or fashion. There is not one of us perfect except for God himself. The glory of it all is he doesn't even expect us to be perfect. He loves us for all of our cracks, all of our flaws. I think we should all look at the bigger picture(think outside the box) and really evaluate how we pick and choose our Friends ask yourself would GOD want us to pick this way and we all know what the answer would be.

SO lets be kind to our neighbors and friends because remember as Christians we all have cracks in our eggs and we aren't flawless or we wouldn't be Christians now would we?


Have a blesses day
