Church 2day

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Where do I begin.......my grandmother has been gone now for 3yrs time to stop making excuses and continue to grieve,rejoice,reclaim and most importantly STOP MAKING EXCUSES!

When my grandmothers body was present on this earth she didn't miss church.....the only thing that kept her home was snow....& that's when she said she would be attending bed side baptist pastor pillow first lady sheets LOL!...... Which meant she was going to watch church on TV and you better not interupt her! LOL!

So 2009 is gone and I'm soooo soooo glad I left it at the alter!.......I broke my neck to get watch nite service because I refused to start 2010 with 2009 on my back!.....it was year that I soon want to forget!

All week I told my kids I'm going to church I let them know in advance so I wouldn't have to wait on anyone!

My daughter told me " well ma can we you get your clothes out tonite..so we can get there on time...WE NEVER GET TO CHURCH ON TIME!..its a new year new start so yes where going to church!

It felt good to here her say that...but also I'm looking at her " WHO YOU THINK U TALKN TO"..lol

But I'm also saying she is soooo right!

Church starts at 11 she was up at. 6am....so I took her lead and I was dressed in the car waiting on my mom at 10:45....YEAH ME!

Ok so haven't been going to church as active as I used to HEY! I Just realized I have been to church 3 sundays in a row YEAH ME!

Can u say just sorry because my pastor is my cousin and he had on numerous occasions called to see what was going on....

I get to church this morning and church is over flowing and do you know of all places me & the kids we seated in the 1st pew!!!!.....I'm sayn to myself WOW!....OF ALL PLACES!!! so you know I was feeling some kinda way bout that....but I quickly got over it becuz that was devil trying me in Gods house & he lost!

I have rambliing and the point of my blog was to tell you about pastors message today...taken from
Roman chapter 12

I was kinda taken aback when my daughter knew the scripture...I was just surprised
It felt good to know despite her behavior (she's not a bad child but your typical teenager)

Verse 2 reads

DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD....but be RENEWED/TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your MIND (by its ideals and new attitude) so that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God...even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect in His sight for you.

This was powerful for me.....how many of us get caught up in the world and forget about our christian walk....i m not going to lie I know I have back slid numerous times and God has forgiven me but 2010 is the year to do better....be better!

Pastor said to give yor body to God and he will clean you up...soften your heart...change your thoughts....teach to forgive...stop your drugn & drinkn...help your marriage....help your kids...help your job...help your mind....God WILL HELP EVERYTHING IF YOU JUST GIVE YOURSELF TO HIM!

TODAY HE WAS SPEAKING TO ME.....because I knew I had been conformed to world & the world was STATING TO TAKE OVER MY SPIRIT...and it reflected at times in my attitude.....CARRYING THE WORLD ON MY SHOULDERS WAS WEIGHT & BURDEN I DON'T NEED TO CARRY!

The message at church was to not be in the world but be OF THE WORLD....we are one body of christ but God has given us all different talents & qualities and we should use them accordingly...but let your LOVE BE SINCERE.....
Hate what is evil but hold onto what is good.....
Love sincerly a real thing....

BE steadfast & patient in SUFFERING & TRIBULATION....be constant in PRAYER...
Bless those who persecute us & their attitude toward you DO NOT CURSE THEM BACK....
Rejoice with those who rejoice share there joy....when they weep you share there grief...

My favorite part.......
Live in harmony with one another......do not be SNOBBISH....HIGH MINDED...but adjust yourself to people and things....HUMBLE YOURSELF TO TASKS....Do not think highly of yourself more highly than you ought but think of yourself with sober judgement....

Repay NO ONE EVIL FOR EVIL....but take thought for what is honest and proper & noble.....
Never avenge yourself leave the way open for Gods wrath....God say the Vengeance is Mine I will repay

But if your enemy is hungry feed him if he is thirsty give him dsomething to drink for by doing this you keep coals of fire on his head

DO NOT LET YOURSELF BE OVERCOME by. EVIL......But OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD!

This Christian Conduct .....the Gods rules of a Christian not ours this law!

Everthing today was what I needed because I was starting to do just the opposite of all.....
Give your life to God and he will clean it up turn it around.....I learned a lot today!!!!

I may not get every step right but if I take 1 step God will help me take the rest ....but you must must be committed and ready to accept God because its not an easy battle...the Devil will attack by all means...

Amen!
