Fireworks!!!

 

Sitting down on my bed, very quiet and alone and all I hear are fireworks in the distance. The wonderful day where everyone goes to the park and celebrates the arrival of daffodils. It’s the Daffodil Festival at Hubbard Park and anyone and everyone is there; teens, adults, children. Rides, shows, and food, it’s a minnie amusement park. Everyone celebrates the time when they know that Spring is here, a good family fun-filled time. And sometimes not so fun. Either way, I sit here and listen to the non-stop boom of TNT while trying to work on getting my psychology assignment done in time to submit it. Yet, I can’t help but think of a time when everything seemed so innocent. When life didn’t seem as busy or confusing. There was a time where I didn’t care what people thought about me and I was determined to do what I wanted to do and when I wanted to do it and no one could tell me otherwise. Somehow, somewhere, it all stopped and changed. Responsibility became my best friend and busyness became my secret enemy, it was like a sickness, or a malignant cancer that spread quickly. Yet, I was caught and entangled in it with no way out. And so the boom of the fireworks that I was hearing has now become the pounding in my head. A fatigue filled body, weak and mentally exhausted. The past few months and weeks have been daunting. The trials of life have left me somewhat discouraged and unworthy. The words “Give Up” have been knocking at the door of my heart and it hurts from all the knocking it’s been doing. It no longer is a knocking but a persistent bang, like that of the fireworks. And I sometimes fear that my heart won’t be able to take that beating anymore forcing me to “Give Up!” It’s funny how when things happen and it seems overwhelming we just want to toss in the towel and call it a day. But as much as I want to I guess I just wasn’t built for that. I’m fighting it through. The funny thing is that God has been knocking too, just not as hard. And sometimes I wonder why. Is He giving up on me? I don’t think so, because I know that He who began a good work in me will finish it as the word says. So why is it such a small knock? Maybe it’s because right now I’m focused too much on the situations that the persistent bang is much bigger than God’s knock. The situation wants to hurt my heart and beat it to death and God wants only to bring healing and life. There is still hope and so I continue to stand on God’s promises. God’s knock is the knock of hope and it’s the one that says “Don’t You Give Up, because you are created in My image and likeness. I‘ve never given up, I have never left you nor forsaken you, therefore I didn’t create you to give up. It’s simply not in you. Now Get up and go forward.” When we are discouraged, God becomes THE Encourager. When we are weak, God becomes THE strength. When we are sad, God becomes THE joy. When we cry,who catches our tears? The word STAND comes to mind. Stand like a soldier armed and prepared for battle, because times that are hard are going to come. There is no stopping it, but are we a tree swaying back and forth with the wind, ready to be uprooted or are we a fortress made out of rock able to withstand any storm or the persistent boom of fireworks? That’s where you decide. Whose knock are you willing to open to?


The Real Reason for the Season!!! <3

Christmas…

That special time of the year, where everyone hustles and bustles to get that perfect Christmas gift. 

I’m not going to lie, sometimes it may be fun and I’ve found myself to be consumed with the shopping every now and again,

But what do we think about when we truly think about Christmas? 

I mean… the REAL meaning of Christmas. 

It’s not called CHRIST-mas for nothing, you know.

I’ll give you a little history lesson, and I’ll make it easy to understand. 

  Way back when, over 2,000 years ago

there was a little boy who was born whose name was Jesus. 

He wasn’t just an ordinary boy, He was the Son of God, a Holy King. 

He was born with a purpose in mind. 

His destiny?….

to die and become a ransom for many. 

He paid the very price of our sin. What we were, He became… when He was innocent.

But He took it ALL for US! 

He saw the JOY that was set before Him, so He endured the cross. 

THAT was the GIFT that was given to us.

It was free for us, but it cost HIM a heavy price…

His LIFE!!!

Our gift was Salvation. 

“That whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have EVERLASTING life!”

(John 3:16)

“To those who receive and except that salvation, He gave the RIGHT to be CALLED the children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were reborn, not with a physical birth, or the will of the flesh or the will of man, but of God.”

(John 1: 12-13)

I am a daughter of the Most High because of what Christ did for me on that cross.

But I, in return had to give something to Him. 

Call it the “Catch” if you will, or the fine lines in a contract.

In return I had to surrender my life to Him, no longer am I my own, but I belong to HIM! 

And that’s the glorious thing about it. 

“For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.”

(Romans 14: 7-8)

That is the true gift and the real meaning of CHRIST-mas. 

HE is the REAL reason for the season! 

Let’s remember that when we come together with our loved ones. 

Because God loved US so much that He SENT His son to be born in a manger

with ONE purpose in mind. 

The GIFT OF SALVATION!!!

MERRY CHRIST-mas EVERYONE 

AND HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!!!

 


Questions!!!

{EAV:1fcd3774ad049424}

QUESTIONS!!!

I asked God to take away my pain.

God said, No.

It’s not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.

God said, No.

Her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience. 

God said, No.

Patience is a bi-product of tribulations, it isn’t granted, it’s earned.

I asked God to give me happiness.

God said, No.

I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain. 

God said, No.

Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.

God said, No.

You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.

God said, No.

I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

I asked God to help me LOVE others as much as He LOVES me. 

God said….Ahhhhh…..

you have finally got the idea!!!

~Author Unknown~

My sister in law gave me this to read one day and I thought, WOW! What an incredible way to look at things. So this is for all those who have “Questions” on their minds that they have been wanting to ask God or has asked Him. I hope it’s as encouraging to my readers as it was for me 🙂


The Burden that Compels the Heart

What does one see when they see our youth?

Photo taken by Crystal Image Photo Art

The generation of this time…

Can we say that our view of our youth is a good one? Or better yet, how is our youth portrayed in society?

If the answer to that question is a “no” or the way society or the “world” views our youth is a disturbing picture that we do not care to mention, than maybe that’s the problem!

Our view on this generation is so poor that we have given up caring one way or another about them. The thought bothers me. Lately, I have been losing sleep about it. Where is the sting of repentance? There is no true burden in our hearts anymore for this youth. I believe there are a rare few who have it, but what about the rest of us? There are how many billions of people in this world? Over half of them are youth, and many of those youth, according to society, will be highschool dropouts, end up in prison, many young teenage girls will become pregnant, and many already come from broken homes. According to an article in “Christian Today” from the youth that go to church 2 out of 3 of those youth will leave the church after graduating highschool.

What is wrong with THAT picture?

I say…EVERYTHING!

We, as adults, talk about our youth as if there is no hope for them anymore. That pains me, because instead of praying and fasting for them and weeping for them we have become spectators in a game of “Battle Ship”. What we fail to understand is that they need an encounter with God just as much as we do. But I think we are more so looking for our own encounter with God that we have forgotten that there are others fighting the same spiritual battle that we are fighting. 

I understand that we can grow tired of everyday life and we have our needs but the word of God says that we should not “grow weary in doing good for in due season we shall reap if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9), which means if we do not lose heart!

Our youth may be heading into a dark and dangerous path if we do not take a stand NOW and snatch them back from the darkness and into the light.

I, myself, have to repent of this lack of burden for this young generation. There is purpose for them still. Instead of tearing them down with our words, passing judgement on them because they lack respect or fail to see the right, we need to lead them. All they need is a leader who will guide them, love them and care for them. They are being misled by the lusts of this world and they do not see because there are not many who are willing to take on that HUGE burden in their hearts that will COMPEL them to move, compel them to advocate, and compel them to act, that come hell or high water no one is going to stop them from snatching back this youth from the fire and into God’s Holy light.

The youth of this generation is crying out for someone to save them, they are constantly being cast down by the words of society and they no longer know what it feels like to be free of the image that has been put upon them. They can’t tell you what real love is anymore because we have failed to show them what real love is. They no longer know what innocence is because we have only showed them corruption. They run from one thing to another seeking love and gratification but because we haven’t shown them how to seek the truth.

Beloved,

We MUST come to a point in our lives where we have to envision this youth as a key that will lead the coming generations to Christ. They have the potential to do that, but we have to see it.

If we don’t reach them first than the things that we dread the most will. It’s a scary thought isn’t it?

“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

(Matthew 19:14)

If Jesus thought of them in such a beautiful light, and He saw them as a priceless jewel that He would die for them just as He died for us…than how much more, because of His joy should we think them precious enough to fight for their salvation, fight for their innocence, and fight for their SOULS!

They need us to not give up on them, they need us to stand up on their behalf, they need us to…..

PRAY FOR THEM….

they need us to…..

STAND IN THE GAP FOR THEM….

they need us to….

 WEEP FOR THEM!!!

If there is no one to do it? If there is no one to lead them? How will THEY lead a generation? Unless we rise and take up the BURDEN, how will they hear the good news?

“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of good news, who bring glad tidings of good things!'”

(Romans 10:14-15)

The burden I’m talking about is not the burden that most might think. It’s not a burden that becomes a drag for doing it, but it’s the burden in our heart that compels us to take action. Such a burden is not just a weight on our shoulders but a heaviness in our hearts so deep that we can no longer go on seeing our youth in the disparity they are in.

They cry, they hurt, some want out, and some try to find a way out by drugs, alcohol, sex, and even suicide.

WE ARE NOT LISTENING!!! WE ARE NOT SEEING!!! WE ARE NOT LEADING!!!

Leaders……rise up and lead!!! They need us…all of us!

If we don’t, than someone else will. The question is, who is that someone?

Imagine a youth taking a stand, following Christ and leading others to Christ in the same way with a burden that is placed on their hearts.

I can! And I will!

THE BURDEN!!!!


Something A Little Different- Singing “Wait”

So I wanted to try something different, you know, something out of my comfort zone and out of the norm. I put this little video together for you. Yes, I have to give my cousin Crystal Garcia some credit for this because she inspired me to do something different. Instead of blogging, I thought I’d put a little video. Maybe it’s a little corny that I’m singing for my future husband, whoever God decides to send my way. But Hey, I’m single and I know there have to be some single young ladies and fellas out there who may need a little encouragement. Wait on the Lord!

So I’m singing just a little bit of this song acapella from Group 1 Crew who is a Christian group and the song is “Wait”

Enjoy!!!!

 


EMPTY ME!!!

EMPTY ME!!!

Empty Me…Those words…What is it about those words that I hear in songs? Songs that wrench the soul, songs that are sung by people who really want God, songs that are and can only be sung by the heart and soul of a person. You have to really WANT God if you ask Him to empty you.

Empty Me…It means to empty someone of themselves. All the selfishness and pride, all the junk, anger, hurt, stubbornness and rebellion. This person is asking God to empty them of everything that is not God or Godly and fill them with more of Him. More of God.

“Holy fire burn away

my desire for anything

that is not of You and is of me

I want more of You and less of me….

Empty me…..empty me….

and fill…won’t you fill me

With You…with you!!

I want more…I want more…

I want more of You, Jesus!”

~Jeremy Camp~

 

“Empty me of the selfishness inside,

every vain ambition and the poison of my pride,

and any foolish thing my heart holds to…

Lord, empty me of me so I can be filled with You…

‘Cause everything is a lesser thing compared to You!”

~Chris Sligh~

 

Two songs, sung by two very different people…What they have in common? The King, God, who was, is and still IS above all. EMPTY ME!!!

You know sometimes I get to that place where my life is filled with too much of ME that I can’t see anyone else. I sometimes ask myself why that is, or I ask God. And what I find is that, on my own, I don’t have an answer. But when I start searching my heart through God there’s more of an answer than I really care to know or want to know. It gets kind of scary. We were all born with a natural tendency of certain things…It’s called human nature. One of them is selfishness. You see, when  babies are born the one thing they do is cry for attention. They want to be held, they want their milk, then want everything to be about them, all eyes on them. They crave attention of their parents and family. Which, of course, they should, they are babies. They NEED that attention. But when we grow up there is no need for that anymore. We are not babies; we can take care of ourselves and do things on our own. But sometimes, again, we get to that place where for some reason we lose sight of others and we look to ourselves again. We are hurt so we need others to comfort us. We get so busy with work, school, family and the thing we call life that we forget about God and maybe even forget about others and their needs when we are so wrapped up in our own little world. That’s why when I hear songs like “Empty Me” I just take a look at my life and where I’m at and also where I’m not. I start searching and going back to what I missed. There must be something I missed that got me back to this place of ME. God was trying to tell me something or do something and I missed it. AGAIN! I’ve been here before, this is not new to me. So what is it? You see…this is where…ME…being the imperfect creature that I am, start to analyze, maybe even over analyze my life. Some people may think of it as I’m being too hard on myself. But you know what, I’ve come to the conclusion that you can never be too hard on yourself. Because, if I was, I’d be in a completely different place right now. I used to be insecure but not anymore. So this is not me being insecure because I know what I stand for and WHO I stand for. That will never change. I know who I am in Christ. This is just me searching my heart and soul because right now I’m not happy with just being me and all into me. I’m most happy when I’m doing things for God and others. So somewhere I missed it. I know God is THE King, but is He MY King? He is my Savior, but have I allowed Him to become My Lord? It’s just a reality check. We all need that once in awhile. Especially Christians. The Bible even says:

~Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?–Unless you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.~

(2 Corinthians 13:5)

I know that there are reasons for everything. And my reason for this one is that I want so much more of God. I want to be EMPTIED by Him. I want to be that singer that pours out my entire heart to God asking Him to empty all of me. Because if it’s all about me than I don’t want to live…I want to die. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about a physical death, or suicide. Let’s not twist my words. I’m talking about being dead to sin but alive in Christ Jesus. Because if it’s all about Him than death and life are only the beginning.

I end with this prayer to my God,

Dear Lord and Father, My God,

I’ve been here before. We both know it. You know my heart, my coming in and my going out. You know my every move. Nothing is hidden from you. I need you to search my heart, and my inner most being. My whole entire heart wants all of You but my flesh keeps resisting. I know that I can only do this through Christ who strengthens me. I know that in my weaknesses You are made strong. And Lord, I am so weak. There is nothing good about me…Compared to Your love, grace and infinite mercies. In Your presence I am nothing because You are above all and everything. God, My God, I need You. Empty me, Lord this day. Empty me of all my selfishness, empty me of all my own ability, thoughts and intents of the heart and fill me with all of You. Nothing more but You. Here I am, a daughter in the presence of a Holy and Righteous God, asking for Your forgiveness and needing Your grace. I am sorry for thinking too much about me and my own needs and forgetting about those souls around me. Help me to remember my 1st Love. God, You alone are…and always will be my 1st Love. There is none like You and no one can compare to You. As David says:

~As the deer pants for the water brooks,

So my soul pants for You, O God.~

(Psalms 42:1)

EMPTY ME, LORD!!!

Shake me of the things of this world. Give me more of You. “‘Cause I want more of You, Jesus!”

AMEN!!!

 


BELOVED!!!!

 

Beloved,

How can I describe to you the goodness and beauty of a sovereign and mighty God?

So many times God wants to give so much of Himself, yet we push away.

Beloved,

Jesus died a shameful death so that we may have life, yet we act as if He was just a regular man.

He gave hope to the hopeless, and strength to the weak….

“For the joy that was set before Him He endured the cross, scorning it’s shame…” (Hebrews 12:2)

Beloved,

We cannot think that in living our lives we won’t lose what we gain from this world, because those things can easily be taken away…they are fleeting moments!

“What good is  it for a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?”  (Matthew 16:26)

Beloved,

I know there is hurt and pain in this world, and life is sometimes tough…but remember who holds you when you cry yourself to sleep…even though you don’t see Him or feel Him.

“You number my wanderings; Put my tears in your bottle; are they not in Your book? When I cry out to You, Then my enemies will turn back; This I know because God is for me!” (Ps. 56:8-9)

Beloved,

The most beautiful thing we can do is to turn our eyes and fix our gaze upon the beauty of the glorious God who gave us life and snatched us from the fire.

“Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire.” (Zechariah 3:2)

Beloved,

There are no words to describe how AWESOME He is.

And the most amazing and beautiful thing is that HE calls us BELOVED!

“Let the Beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders.” (Deuteronomy 33:12)

As I was driving to work early one morning, the sun was extremely bright and was hitting directly at my eyes where it was blocking my vision. Even with my sunglasses on it was still quite bothersome. So I decided to put down my visor, and though the sun was still very bright I was able to see more clear without the sun hitting directly in face.

Now, there’s a point to this story…you see, as I lowered that visor to block the sun, it suddenly dawned on me…how many of us, when God wants to shine His light and His amazing beauty directly on us we decide to go for that visor and block what He wants to do in our lives. Even though we still get little bits of that light, the full light that He wants to embrace us with is being blocked by the limitations we put on Him. As I was thinking of these things while I was driving these words popped into my head,

“Beloved, it’s ALL or nothing!”

Beloved,

Are we telling God that we want to experience some of Him and not ALL of Him?

What we have to realize is we can’t have one foot in and one foot out…anything that is not God is against God and therefore He cannot go against Himself. Jesus gave ALL of Himself on that cross not half of Himself and God wants the same in return.

Beloved….It’s ALL or nothing!

TOTAL AND COMPLETE RELIANCE IN AND SURRENDER TO MY GOD!!!

Nehemiah was a great example of someone who knew how to do the work he was called to do while relying on the Lord to protect them even when circumstance was against him. Nehemiah was mocked and threatened, but he did not allow himself to become discouraged because he knew God was well able to provide and honor his heart to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. And he called out to God so that he can intercede for his people. God honored him all the way. The wonderful thing about this story is how every single person who was building the wall became very watchful of their surroundings because of the threat of their enemies. So in that while they worked on the wall with one hand….they held a weapon in the other. In the same way…as we do the work of God with one hand…in the other we must have a weapon and be watchful of the times….and my weapon is the Word of God.

(Nehemiah 4:8-20)

8  And they all plotted together to come and fight against Jerusalem, to injure and cause confusion and failure in it.9  But because of them we made our prayer to our God and set a watch against them day and night.10  And [the leaders of] Judah said, The strength of the burden bearers is weakening, and there is much rubbish; we are not able to work on the wall.11  And our enemies said, They will not know or see till we come into their midst and kill them and stop the work.12  And when the Jews who lived near them came, they said to us ten times, You must return [to guard our little villages]; from all places where they dwell they will be upon us.13  So I set [armed men] behind the wall in places where it was least protected; I even thus used the people as families with their swords, spears, and bows.14  I looked [them over] and rose up and said to the nobles and officials and the other people, Do not be afraid of the enemy; [earnestly] remember the Lord and imprint Him [on your minds], great and terrible, and [take from Him courage to] fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.15  And when our enemies heard that their plot was known to us and that God had frustrated their purpose, we all returned to the wall, everyone to his work.16  And from that time forth, half of my servants worked at the task, and the other half held the spears, shields, bows, and coats of mail; and the leaders stood behind all the house of Judah.17  Those who built the wall and those who bore burdens loaded themselves so that everyone worked with one hand and held a weapon with the other hand,18  And every builder had his sword girded by his side, and so worked. And he who sounded the trumpet was at my side.19  And I said to the nobles and officials and the rest of the people, The work is great and scattered, and we are separated on the wall, one far from another.20  In whatever place you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us. 


STAND FACE TO FACE WITH THE LION!!!

     I came across this email that was sent to me by a friend from the church that I attend. I found it very interesting and encouraging to know that there are still people who are willing to stand for the word of God and are not willing to give up the Truth even though the circumstances seem to be a bit intimidating or controversial, as some would say it. In this email contained a prayer that a Pastor so boldly prayed in the opening of the Kansas Senate. Mind you, he was asked to open up the session in prayer. Here is what he prayed…..

      “Heavenly Father,  We

           come   before you

               today to ask

    your forgiveness and to seek

   your direction and guidance…

We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that

                          is exactly what we have done.

  We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.

               We have exploited the poor and called it the

                                          lottery.

                We have rewarded laziness and called it

                                          welfare.

                 We have killed our unborn and called it

                                          choice.

                  We have shot abortionists and called it

                                       justifiable.

      We have neglected to discipline our children and called it

                               building self-esteem…

                     We have abused power and called it

                                         politics.

     We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it

                                        ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it

                                 freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called

                                      it enlightenment.

                Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today;

                     cleanse us from every sin and set us free..

                                            Amen!”

                                 ~Pastor Joe Wright~

     Now tell me how many people including the legislators walked out of that place in protest. My question is…Why? But we all know the answer to that. Because they know it’s the truth and they cannot come face to face with the person they really are. They know that they have allowed this country to slip down a dark and scary road…Demanding that God be taken out of schools, and people who preach Jesus to keep silent. Well…not anymore! Some say, it’s time to rise up and stand! God’s people are still standing boldly without any shame…facing the lion. God says, He sends us out as sheep among wolves. The funny thing about sheep is that they are good at obeying, and the crazy thing about wolves is that they are sly and cunning…deceitful and only around for one thing…to prey on the weak, and they stick around hiding…waiting…very quietly until they see that their prey is lost or dieing to sneak up on them when they’re at their lowest point. The one thing about sheep though is that they are almost always being watched and looked after by their Shepard. And as Jesus said the sheep only know the voice of  their shepards…and they know they are protected. Even when they are lost He will find them, and when they are weak, He will care for them.

     We have come to a place in this lifetime where freedom of expression is encouraged…yet Christians aren’t free to speak out about their faith. Slowly and slowly our rights have been dwindling down to almost nothing, yet we are still called free. It’s okay to call on the name of Allah because it’s considered to be diversity, but God forbid I call on the name of Jesus, that’s considered to be offensive! How much more can we tolerate the silence…and how much more can we go about pretending to be spiritual, yet keep the only answer we know to ourselves. Some people might call that reserved and shy…well, I call that selfish!

     I am encouraged to take a stand and get out of my own little place of comfort and peace and cause a fire that will burn in people’s hearts…wake up the dead, stir up the sleeping…cause havoc for Christ instead of  staying in my safe haven. Let’s do something and take a stand with boldness…AND STAND FACE TO FACE WITH THE LION!!!


THAT’S MY KING!!!!

My King was born King!!!

The Bible says He’s a sevenway King,

He’s a King of the Jews, that’s a racial King!

He’s a King of Israel, that’s a national King!

He’s a King of Righteousness, He’s a King of the ages!

He’s a King of Heaven, He’s a King of Glory

He’s the King of kings and He’s the Lord of lords

THAT’S MY KING!

****Note from Starsha-This is a very powerful sermon that was preached along time ago from the late Pator S.M. Lockridge!  I thought I should share after the Pastor in my church preached a sermon quite similar to this one, which was extremely powerful and encouraging, and than after his sermon he played the sermon that Pastor Lockridge had preached…and it was so amazing I knew that I only had to post a blog and share with all of my readers. Hope it touches you like it did me…ENJOY!!!



This is a little something that I found on youtube and decided to put it on here, because the young man that is preaching this is so full of excitement, and I thought I should share this as well. He also is preaching from the sermon “That’s My King” by Pastor S.M. Lockridge!
