We are so grateful for the many freedoms and liberties we celebrate as a country. Our forefather’s prayed and fought very hard and many lives were given as sacrifice for the freedoms we now enjoy. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson are just a few names of those who played a major role in development of this country we now know as “The United States of America”. Our Constitution alone with the “Bill of Rights” laid the foundation of the laws and liberties we see today. Always remember and never forget the history of our future.
Proverbs 31:25-30 King James Version (KJV)
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
This is the Day in May…
Everyday is Mother’s and /father’s day

This month commemorates the exit of human life of Jesus Christ. Palm Sunday celebrates his triumphant entry into Jerusalem for the last time. Following is the passion week leading to Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday (Easter).
Easter is the time of the Christian year to remember the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. They believe that Jesus, who they believe was the son of God, died for everyone’s wrong-doings and then came back to life three days later to defeat death and evil: so if you believe in Him you will live forever in Heaven. In the Jewish custom the Passover is celebrated with Holy Week their eight-day celebration. Let us be mindful of this exciting, sacred celebration.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.
— 2 Corinthians 10:4
” The word “warfare” is taken from the word stratos. By choosing to use this word, the Holy Spirit alerts us to some very important facts about spiritual warfare.
The word stratos is where we derive the word strategy. This informs us that spiritual warfare does not occur accidentally but is something that is strategically planned. Just as any army plans its line of attack before a battle begins, the devil plans a line of attack, decides which methods he will use, and chooses the approach he wants to take as he cautiously charts a well-thought-out assault.
But the word stratos doesn’t just describe the devil’s strategies. It also tells us that if we will listen to the Holy Spirit, He will give us a strategy that is superior to any schemes of the devil. The devil is not the only one with a strategy. The Holy Spirit always holds the key to every victory, and He wants to provide us with a divinely-inspired strategy that will render null and void the works of the devil every time!
It’s 2019, and it begins with all things new, even though things look familiar and almost the same. We are transitioning. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that if any man be in Christ, he a new creature or creation: old things are passed: behold (look) all things are become new.
John writes in Revelation that I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
With each passing day we are passing. The old is leaving and making way for the new. Everything is changing and will be changed. Celebrate this these new beginnings.
Isaiah 9:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Luke 2:8-14 King James Version (KJV)
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
“O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is GOOD, for His mercy endureth forever.” (Psalm 107:1)
It is good the give thanks to our Lord! For God is GOOD. Everything He made was GOOD; and His mercy endures forever. We are always in thanksgiving giving thanks. With every breath we take we should acknowledge our thanks to Him as we breathe His breath. As we fellowship with family and close friends, let’s not forget who our thanks belongs to.
Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
We were just dust on the ground when God intimately formed us. Despite all of us being the same, He forms each of us uniquely and differently from this dust.
And you know WHAT? We are ALIVE in Him by His breath!
Acts 17:28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
START LIVING THE LIFE!
Matthew 9:35-38 35
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
36. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
37. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
38. Ask the LORD of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
