Happy Anniversary 11 Years

Matthew 19:3-9
(King James Version)


3: The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

4: And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5: And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6: Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
7: They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
8: He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
9: And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.


Lesson:

It took me a long time to understand the meaning behind marriage and what is is meant for. It is not just to be happy BUT to live holy before God. I will never say that it is easy or that you will not go through things because you will. My husband and I have had  our tough spots. We have both wanted to give up on each other and just leave. But it was something that we had no idea was going on and it was nothing but the grace of God that held us together. This message is just a message of encouragement for all married couples out there, God loves marriage, He created it and He hates to see us allow our own flesh as well as the enemy tear us apart.

One day in the mist of me going through a minister asked me one question, They asked, "Anyone can leave, but who can stay?" It was the same question God had been asking me for quite some time. When we allow the enemy to come in and destroy what God has put together he has won and we are defeated. So I say to you today do not allow the enemy to separate you. God has a better plan ahead. Even though it does not look like things are going to change or the person is not going to change, I encourage you to hold on to God's unchanging hand. He will fix it for you. Allow Him to make some changes in you because just as you think your spouse is the problem you do not realize how much of a problem you are also.

We always think it is the other person that causes all the strife in the relationship but I am here to speak the truth. and the truth is it is both parties. I have not been a saint in my relationship with my husband and I can now admit that I made my mistakes and lots of them. It is a learning process. But I am here to say that I would not change a thing now because it will be used for the saving of someone else's marriage and soul. I thank God for who He is and what he has done for us. I have seen how couples get separated and do things to hurt each other. It is a ugly mess and I am glad that God kept us from doing the same thing to each other.

I love you Tuarus and I look forward to the many more years God is blessing us with...

Going Back Into The World

Seven Unclean Spirits Matthew 12:43-45

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Lesson:

When God calls us out of the darkness He will clean us up and change our life. We are made righteous and holy before His presence. Everything that had us bound or had a hold on us in the world we are set free from. No longer do we want the same things. No longer do we want to commit the sins that we were a slave to. We are delivered from pain, bondage and sin.

We are now saved and our sins are forgiven and covered under the blood of Jesus. We are free from death and free t…

Psalms 51:10-13

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not away thy holy spirit from me.
12Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

Lesson:

Renew - to begin or do again, to make like new; replenish
Salvation - The act of saving or the means of being saved. 2. Deliverance from the consequences of sin.
Transgressor - person responsible for wrongdoing

In these verses David asks God to wash away his sins and make his heart clean or pure. The same goes for us. Meaning take away the evil that is in my heart that I should sin no more and breathe new life into my spirit. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit that we may be one. Save and deliver me from my sins that I may teach others the way to Christ.

It isn't until we have had our hearts cleansed by God, our sins forgiven and and been filled with the Holy Spirit that w…

God Don't Make Mistakes

Deuteronomy 32:4 AMPHe is the Rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are law and justice. A God of faithfulness without breach or deviation, just and right is He.Ecclesiastes 3:14 AMPI know that whatever God does, it endures forever; nothing can be added to it nor anything taken from it. And God does it so that men will [reverently] fear Him [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].Have you ever had someone out of the blue stop to talk to you and you think they are rambling on? At some point while they are talking they say something that you know they should not know about you, an right then you know that it's God. It happened to me today an the small thing he said was so great in my heart it brought me to tears. As I shook the man's hand I heard, "God don't make mistakes."
