Welcome Dear Friends!

I am honored that you stopped by! I pray you will be encouraged and blessed. I believe when we share our heartaches and victories, our faith is strengthened. Knowing God is with us, and our steps are ordered by Him, gives us hope for the future!

Ephesians 1:11-14 (The Message)

11-12. It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.
13-14. It's in Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this Message of your salvation), found yourselves home free—signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit. This signet from God is the first installment on what's coming, a reminder that we'll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.

If you have wondered who you are and why you are here taking up space, then here is your answer! Can you imagine that a long time before we knew about Him, He already had plans for us! Plans that once we believe and accepted His Son, we would be saved. But this was only the beginning! There is so much more! I am afraid we live way beneath our inheritance. Then we wonder why we don't live a victorious life! He sent His Word and the Holy Spirit to be our teacher. We really don't have any excuses, do we? I pray that we would claim what is rightly ours, after all the highest price ever paid was for us. Have a Blessed Lords day. (Be sure and check out Spiritual Sunday, the ladies always have praise reports and blessing to share).

It is so important that we know who we are IN CHRIST and walk in that knowledge and authority. Praise God for HIS completed work.
