There's more to thanksgiving than eating turkey and stuffing once a year. Everyday we wake up is a day to be thankful. Jesus washed the feet of His disciples prior to His crucifixion. This was a sign of love and humility. Jesus death brought life to all of us. His blood was offered as atonement for our sins; by His blood our minds, bodies and souls are nourished. His blood makes us whole for His glory. In all things let us count it all joy rejoicing at the sacrificial offering that was given to us through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

Have you ever felt that you were alone with no one to call on? I was fortunate enough to be raised in a home that stood on the word of God. I didn't always understand it, but I knew He was real. It wasn't until later in my life that I began to really desire to know Him more. I wanted to have a personal relationship with Him. He was always there. It was His voice that I heard when I was in trouble and needed help. He would whisper to me what to do. I would do it and things worked out. The stories are too numerous to write in this blog, but I can honestly say once again like it states in Jeremiah 33:3 "Call upon me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you do not know."
Over the years, I called on Him for many things; He was faithful to His word. I didn't always get the answer I wanted but it was what I needed. There were times when I didn't understand why I didn't get what I asked for. I understand now. I learned that God knows what is best for my life.
Life is full of trials and tribulations;that's for sure. God in His infinite wisdom was humble and allowed us to have free will. He never forces Himself on anyone. It is a choice. He even gave the angels free will. That is evident in Lucifer making a choice to seek His own glory rather than continue giving glory to God. I choose to serve the Lord with all my heart, mine and soul. It is truly the greatest choice I have ever made in my life. I'm an imperfect human being that needs God; I need Him every second of the day. I'm not afraid to share my love for Him, but more importantly His love for all of us.
Attached to this short blog is one of many inspirational writings that were written to glorify God. It is from my book From the Mountaintop Of God's Love Theses Verses Flow. "Everywhere I look."
I pray that it will bless anyone that reads or shares it with a touch of our loving God. He created heaven and earth. He created us. What choice are you making today? Look around you. God's beauty is everywhere.

Eighteen years ago, while struggling to raise my three sons, the Lord spoke to me and told me to trust Him in all areas of my life. I heard God’s voice speak to me and tell me to honor Him with my tithes. At that time I didn’t know anything about tithing. Being raised in the south, we are taught to give and help others even if it’s your last. It’s a way of life that never fails. However, I don’t recall anything being preached about tithing. I obeyed God when He spoke to me. Although, I ran into some storms over the years, the covenant of tithing continues. I can boldly say that “God has never failed me”.
Since I lost my job, my refrigerator remains full, my bills are paid, my sons are provided for and my home is not in foreclosure. Glory to God. I have peace like never before; the kind of peace that can only come from God. I feel like Peter when He was walking on the water with Jesus. (LOL)! Every day is an adventure with God. Now, I know what it truly means to rely on God. He said in 1 Peter 5:7 “casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” The second part to this is that we must leave our cares with Him. Worrying solves nothing. It’s a sin to worry. “Therefore I say to you “do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and body more than clothing?” (Matthew 6:25).
God fights our battles. The battle was won when Christ took the cross. It is up to us to believe that God is who He says He is. Either you believe or you don’t. It’s not complicated. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He still heals the sick, provides for His children, and renews our strength like the eagle.
The storms of life don’t come to overthrow us. “And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony.” (Revelation 12:11). Storms are allowed to happen so that God can get the glory whether it’s for a testimony, or to draw us nearer to Him. Everything works out for the good of those who are called according to His purpose. Draw near to the Lord and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8). With God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26).
Since the lay off; I have visited and helped the sick, started a non profit business, organized and produced an event to aid the homeless, done several speaking engagements testifying of God’s goodness and keeping the faith doing trying times, ministered to elementary school children, took television production classes to produce a TV show which is scheduled to air late this year, been booked for several out of state speaking engagements, received certification from the Small Business Administration, spent time with my family, increase my exercise thus losing additional weight, learned how to write grants for non profits, volunteered for worthy causes, observed much and assisted in different ministries of my wonderful, anointed and beautiful church Leaves of Healing Tabernacle which is located in Chatsworth, CA. Through it all God has taken care of me and my sons; HE HAS NOT FAILED. I wouldn’t have been able do any of these things, if I was still in the Corporate World. God opens and He shuts doors.
I praise God for 25 years of non stop employment in which He trained me for bigger and better things. I’m thankful for all the wonderful people that I worked with and remain in contact with to this day. I’m a blessed woman. God hands are upon me. God’s hands are upon all of us. He does not leave us. He does not forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5). GOD DOES NOT FAIL US.
Do you trust Him? Do you obey Him? What is He telling you to do? Are you listening?
This testimony is not being written to say hey look at me. I came into this world to say “Hey, LOOK TO GOD.” That’s what it’s all about. LOOK TO GOD. The best is yet to come. God put it on my heart to share it for one purpose. “FOR HIS GLORY.” If it wasn’t for God’s mercy and grace I would be dead. I’m thankful that He does not judge me according to my iniquities and sins.
The only thing I have to say about me is that I choose to believe that God is who He says He is. I believe that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH HIM. I trust Him to know what is best for me. I can’t do anything without God; however, I can do all things through Him. I NEED GOD.
Listed below are a few facts that happen in life:
1. People will turn their backs on you. People fail. God doesn’t fail. (Hebrews 13:5).
2. Jobs will forsake you; they close down. Jobs fail. God doesn’t fail. (Jeremiah 17: 7-8).
3. Taxes need to be paid. God makes a way; He doesn’t fail. (Phil 4:19).
4. In life there will be some good times and some bad times known as trials and tribulations. (Romans 5:3) God is with you. Call Him. He will answer you. (Jeremiah 33:3). God doesn’t fail.
5. Eventually we will leave this physical body. We can’t take anything with us. What’s next? Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me. (John 14:6). God doesn’t fail. What choice will you make this day?
May God bless everyone that took the time to read this message. More importantly than ever before, if you haven’t already, please take time to develop a personal relationship with God. Seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6).
Keep trusting God. Keep the Faith. Keep moving forward;
‘THE BEST IS YET TO COME WITH GOD.”
Have a blessed weekend and Easter.

God is the best
I should have been dead
God kept me out the grave
That’s why I rant and rave
I called on the Lord
He heard my cry
I didn’t want to die
The Lord picked me up
He carried me to the top
I didn’t have the strength to stand
God held me in His hand
He told me He had me
It was up to me to believe
It was hard when I looked at my circumstances
There was no reason to dance
I kept my eyes on God
I knew with Him I didn’t have to rob
There was no need to be afraid
He didn’t give me fear
I knew God was near
I felt like I would faint
I began to see pictures that only God could paint
The colors began to race through my head
I wasn’t dead
I was alive
That’s no jive
I don’t care what no one says
Only God can give us another day
Things won’t always be the way we won’t them to be
Remember Jesus died on a tree
He did that for you and me
What more do we need
God is with us indeed
Eventually all will pass away
Only God’s word will stay
Stand on God’s word today
He can’t fail
That’s no fairy tale.

Psalms 104: 33-34
I will sing to the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
May my meditation be sweet to Him;
I will be glad in the LORD.
I pray that we will repent and turn from our wicked ways, seek God’s face and humble ourselves before the living God. May the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac hear our prayer and forgive us of our sins. Praise God this day for His mercy, grace and forgiveness. Thank you God for your love. It is truly unconditional.
Bless the LORD, O my soul!
Praise the LORD!
When I woke up this morning, I heard the Lord speaking the words above to me. As I sit here typing these words, I know how great our God is. In life things don’t always go the way we desire for them to go. God said in his word that there would be trials and tribulations. Romans 5:3 “and not only this, but this we also rejoice in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance. And perseverance, proven character, and proven character, hope and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
We aren’t supposed to get discouraged through the trials and tribulations. The bible says we are to count it all joy. James 1:2, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” Many would ask how in the world you go through difficult times joyous. Who can do that? We need Jesus Christ. We can’t do it without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We need God to guide us. We need Him to direct our path. We must appreciate and trust God to be all that He says He is. We must believe in His word.
My prayers go out for Japan. I pray that they will see God’s hand and He will restore their land. May the God of peace be with them. I pray the people everywhere will draw near to Him. James 4:8, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” Let’s pray for one another. Prayer is the only thing that changes anything.

If I didn't know the Lord, I would have been really mad at that guy or who ever they were. When I think about how much God has forgiven me over and over again, how can I not forgive? Life is too short to be angry or bitter. God sees everything. He is our source.
I pray for people who seek to destroy others through hatred and violence. May they come to understand that love covers a multitude of sins and that hatred is a tool used by the devil to keep us apart. A house divided can't stand. Together we can move mountains. 1 Peter 4:8 "And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins."
Are you ready to move some mountains today? Is it hard for you to forgive?
Today is a new beginning. It starts with you. Forgive and live today.

A man known as Safoine Sassi, a hacker for some unknown reason destroyed my website @ www.anointedgifts.net. His contact email is email@example.com
What is hacking? I don’t get it. Why does this person or their group choose to destroy other people’s hard work? Is it hatred? Is it prejudice? Is it just something people do?
I don’t get it. Do you? Please advise.

I wonder sometimes if anyone really cares about anything other than their own personal agendas. I woke up this morning asking God out of all of the people in the world why did He give me this mission. I told Him no one seems to care. Everyone is so busy with their own lives; they very seldom have the time to step outside of their boxes to see a bigger picture.
“Why me Lord?” I’m a single mom of three sons, with one getting ready for college and another going back to college. This is not an easy task. I have the whole world on my shoulders; I’m not God.
God has the whole world in His hands. Nothing is too big or too small for God. Back to the question, “why me Lord?” There are so many other people who can do this; people with prestige, fame, fortune, and wealth. “Why me?” I’m an unemployed single mom with a vision to help the world. Yet, the world doesn’t seem to care.
I’ve worked all of my life taking care of my family and serving the ministry in one capacity or another. I’ve never been without employment. This is the first time in twenty-five years I don’t have a corporate job. God gave me a business/ministry while working a job and taking care of three small sons. The job is gone. The business/ministry is in the building stages. God is not opening doors for anything else at the moment. I and my sons are truly in His hands. We trust Him to direct our paths. It truly is a faith walk.
Once again I ask, if anyone cares?
I was with a friend of mind the other day when a homeless man in what appeared to be his late twenties walked into the place where we were eating. The young man asked me if I could help Him. He went on to say, that he lost his job a few months back and hadn’t been able to find any work. He said he was studying welding and needed money to take the test. My desire was to help him; however, before I could say anything, my friend told him to leave. I sat there with this look of concern on my face. My friend asked me what was wrong. I said maybe we should have tried to help him. My friend went on to say, oh the guy was young, no excuse for that and was probably on drugs. I told my friend, if it wasn’t for God’s grace that could be me. We don’t know his story; only God does. I took the hands of my friend and we prayed for the young man. We asked God to meet his needs.
Last year at this time I was working as a corporate supervisor making decent money. One year later, I don’t have a job. My life changed in an instance. We don’t know what the future holds for any of us. Only God knows the future. Nothing is for certain these days, except God. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
My trust is in God; therefore I know by faith that God will take care of me and my sons. He always has. Unfortunately, there are many who don’t know or believe that. Many have given up on life. Everyone on the streets aren’t homeless because they are drug addicts, or don’t want to work. Many of them are just like me or you. They were working, lost their jobs, their families or homes and just gave up. Do we give up on them as well? Will you give up on me? I pray not.
God knows their stories. Who are we to judge? Matthew 25: 37-40 “ 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
If it wasn’t for God’s grace where would I be? Where would you be? God’s mercy endures. His grace is sufficient.
