The pride of Life
I thought I didn’t have a problem with pride or not a very big one but I’ve discovered I may have been wrong. you see I have cerabal palsey, was not especially gifted or especially smart. However God blessed me and even with my limitations I did a lot. Now I am much older and have even more limitations. I am finding it difficult to cope with the increase limitations and pain. I loved being active and sharing my faith. And the key was my faith in God . I really believed God would use me. I really believed with Him all things were possible Sharing Him knowing Him was the joy of my life. I need to remember the things that brought me the most joy are still possible friendship with Him and friendship with others . So the Key is to remember He delights in me the first time someone sent that scripture to me there was total shock ? He delights me? me wow! really? Have you ever asked that question ? felt that way ? So the key is to continue to delight in Him boast in Him live in Him. It’s about Him not me. ” I have come that you might have life and have it abundantly ” (at any age in all circumstances. ) So let’s encourage one another to enjoy the life we have been given and boast in the one who gave it fills it substain it. Let Him who boast boast in the Lord !

I was trying to get a handle on goals for 2018 so decided that I wanted to be a person of integrity and a mature person. so began by looking at definitions in the dictionary. mature =whole complete integrity = morally upright in one’s actions this should take the rest of my life so guess I am set with goals now to work on the achievement attainment part. This will that some effort. Do I have that much energy ? prayers please

2018 Lord it is all yours ! it is way to much for me to handle but only a small thing to you. When I look at it I am overwhelm. When I look at you I am encouraged and strength. Help me choose to make you my focus in 2018. to bring to you everything joy, sadness, gifts of every kind. To embrace all you are and to accept (with thanksgiving or at the least trust) all you send/give knowing you are always good, just, merciful .Amen !

Joy to the World ! number 2

we live in a dark world no doubt about it, but joy will never be eradicated . Because on that first Christmas  The Light of the world came to us. His name was Jesus ! His coming was proclaimed by singing of the angels. they did not come to the rich and famous they came to shepherds out in the field just doing their job no great expectations. but the Angels came with great news ! behold unto you is born this day  in the city of David the  great Savior Christ the Lord . The shepherds said let us go worship Him . they did not hesitate they went to worship Him who came into the world by the singing of Angels. They were led by a star to the light of the world .No matter how dark this world gets the light still shines because he came. Light came into the world and the world did not receive Him but to all who receive him  the light shine bright and their world is filled with joy because on the cross and in our new life in Christ there  is fullness of joy. Death was defeated and life was given . Joy to the world He is coming again and all the world and the Angels will sing glory to God in the highest and on earth good will to men. God’s will is that all might be saved but there is only one way His name is Jesus.

Joy to the world

Jesus  over rules you ! those who follow the ruler of this world. .

because the ruler of this world has been overcome.

 

Jesus rules in us Those who have given Him the Keys to our heart.

There are many keys because there are many things which seek to rule us.

But He Jesus has overcome and He makes us overcomers by His blood.

He came to a world with no Joy because  Hope had been lost.

Hope is lost when there is no space no chance for change.

He came and changed everything because with His birth a living hope was born.

Joy to the World the Lord has come let earth receive her King.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be encouraged

how much faith does it take on our part for a great God to do great things in our lives and through our lives? the bible said if we have faith the size of a mustard seed nothing shall be impossible. Wow ! Do you know that a mustard seed is small but produces a great tree. That is great news because often my faith is small maybe smaller than a mustard seed. Yet God grows faith in my heart and helps me to act on that faith. So join Mary ( Jesus mother)  and me in magnifying  and EXAULTING  THE lORD AS WE CELEBRATE hIS COMING TO EARTH.  mERRY Christmas !
