Never again, will my posts be this random!

Happy Friday Friends!  I hope you had a great week! I don't know if it's just me, but I feel like this week went by like a turtle. I'm not complaining though! I had a great week!  For all who don't know I am no longer working at Panera bread. Yea, I quite because I am no longer living close enough. So, this weekend I will probably spend many hours of the wee day filling out applications. Gah!  I am very much enjoying my time off though. And I know God already has a job for me already picked out and I know I will love it!  Do you have any weekend plans?
           I came across this video a few days ago because lately I have been quite addicted to godtube videos! It made my heart smile and I hope you are deeply encouraged by it as I was!
                                                                                                                                                                    My morning so far has been quite eventful! God is showing me and encouraging me more each day as I seek His beautiful face!

Of course I started my morning with the delicious taste of fruitiness that can only come from Fred Flinstone....Well, his cereal that is! No not him.  Ahh! I would love to introduce to you one of my hobbies "Mitch match socking"  And you know I can't go a morning without a nice hot cup of green tea! It just hits the spot as I continue to Bible dig! I love my quiet mornings with Jesus. 
So, last night and this morning I have been attacked with a self mind battle. Until God showed me something in a book! I'm reading  "Words that move mountains" By E.W. Kenyon and Don Gossett. I really wanted to share it with you because it helped out a lot and has put much joy in my heart this morning as I pray it does yours as well.
                                          My NEVER AGAIN list

A Bold Challenge To "Speak The Word Only" Matt. 8:8

                                                           by DON GOSSETT

FIRST:   Never Again will I confess "I can't,"  For I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." Philippians 4:13.

SECOND: Never Again will I confess lack, for "My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19.

THIRD:   Never Again will I confess fear, for "God hath not given me the spirit of fear, but of power,  and of love, and of a sound mind." II Timothy 1:7.

FOURTH:  Never Again will I confess doubt and lack of  faith, for "God hath given to every man the  measure of faith." Romans 12:3.

FIFTH:  Never Again will I confess weakness, for "The Lord is the strength of my life." Ps. 7:1 and The people that know their God shall be strong  and do exploits." Daniel 11:32.

SIXTH:       Never Again will I confess supremacy of Satan over my life, for "Greater is He that is within me
 than he that is in the world." I John 4:4.

SEVENTH:  Never Again will I confess defeat, for "God always causeth me to triumph in Christ Jesus."
                        II Corinthians 2:14.

EIGHTH: Never Again will I confess lack of wisdom for "Christ Jesus is made unto me wisdom from God." I Corinthians 1:30.

NINTH:    Never Again will I confess sickness, for "With His stripes I am healed." Isaiah 53:5, and Jesus
"Himself took my infirmities and bare  my sicknesses." Matthew 8:17.

TENTH: Never Again will I confess worries and
                frustrations, for I am "Casting all my cares upon Him who careth for me." I Peter 5:7. In Christ I am "care‑free!"

ELEVENTH:  Never Again will I confess bondage, for "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." II Corinthians 3:17. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit!

TWELFTH:    Never Again will I confess condemnation, for "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1. I am in Christ; therefore, I am free from condemnation.
Is this awesome or what!  Guess where this list is gonna be for now on? Yep! On my desk and in my journal. And I just might add some more lists to this one. For there is power in the spoken word!
I encourage each and everyone of you to write this down or make your own and quote each day before you start it. I bet your day would be more victorious!

So, "Words that move mountainsis most defiantly a recommendation  from me so far.  Another one I wish to add this morning is "What is he thinking" By the one and only "Rebecca St James.

In WHAT IS HE THINKING??, Rebecca interviews a range of men from high-profile types to the guys next door, men that every woman can relate to. Although the interviews focus on single guys ages 20-35, Rebecca also includes words of wisdom from older mentors she respects who have been successfully married for years, people like her dad, life coach, and pastor.
The men share their thoughts on topics like how women can respect themselves and the men in their lives, modesty, purity, taking it slow, friendship, letting guys lead, and more. This book gives them the floor to say what they would really like women to know.
The men respond candidly to questions such as:
  • What is the most attractive quality to you in a woman?
  • Is modesty truly attractive?
  • Is neediness a turn-off?
  • What do you find beautiful?
  • How can we be dependent on God for our identity, not on you?
  • How can we help you with boundaries physically?
Rebecca also discusses her own dating life, speaking openly about the single life, her struggle with loneliness, and her hope for the future. She challenges women to see the men in their lives as brothers in Christ and to trust God with their dating lives.

This is a must read book! If you're one of those precious ladies who wonders "where did all the good guys go?  This book is looking for you! I have received this book from the author herself, when I met this sweet young woman. And I recommend that all of you ladies get your hands on this book.

                           Happy Friday all! 

   Yours truly: Heather.

Jeremy Camp "Overcome"

One of my new favorite worship songs!

Full cup of joy!

So, have you ever had one of those days when you can't stop smiling? Truly smile. Even when your trying to sleep you just start giggling?

 Do you ever have those moments of pure joy?

Where you just wanna dance like no one is watching?

These moments are gifts from God. I just praise Him for everything He does and continues to do in my life!
Many people say that Christianity is old fashioned or boring. But I believe Christianity is the most incredible adventure there is! 

I mean think about it.  We are living a life with no worries, freedom and a God who loves us and wants to meet our every need! Plus We get to serve the God of the universe. And that my friend is every adventure!  Each day I feel even closer to Him and I want to share it to the world!

To be a light to everyone around me until they just can't help but get some of that light, where they just can't help but desire and want it! 

   I thank  God for giving me pure joy moments!

  If you happen to have a moment like this in the next few days, I urge you to write it down. Share it with someone. Remember it somehow. It may be something so small, but the impact and joy that it can bring is priceless.

Sing and enjoy the ride, Don't let these moments pass you by. Love and lets live and never give up on life!

Meet Becca McClanahan!

Happy Monday!

Hope you are having a great week so far!
I found this great video today and I wanted to share it.

Loving Heidi Baker

At the conference I bought a total of five books and Leon bought seven.
These are mine:
I'm reading all of them at the same time, because I just don't have the patience to read them one at a time. I really love "Compelled by love by Heidi Baker! Shes an inspiration. She and her husband gave away everything they had to move to Mozambique to start a church! She had no idea that God would place her with children and give her such a love for them.

Children have keys to the kingdom. They are more trusting than adults. Children believe in miracles until they are taught by some adult that believing in things unseen is silliness. A four-year-old child in any culture has faith in miracles. Then an adult comes along and teaches them not to believe."
Heidi Baker: Compelled by love.

I love how those words were written! I couldn't say it better myself.  We all look down on children because they are young, when really we should be looking up to them. Such great faith they have!

One of my passions is to teach the younger generation who they are in Christ! And the authority and love they have in Him. Which is probably one reason why I am loving this book so much!

Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
                                                                         Luke 18:17

And said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.            Matthew 18:3
 So, yes! I am really getting into this book. And as you can tell I will have my nose in books for the next couple of months. (Yes, I am a slow reader)  So, if you are looking for me, I might just look like this:

A changed life!

I went on a conference for the last few days with my hubby, and our Pastor, Joe Lloyd.
I love Pastor Joe! He is a great fatherly figure and has planted seeds in all of our lives, and He is very passionate about taking time to invest in equipping the saints! He prays for everyone in the Church every day! He is a man many look up too and I am proud to have him as our Pastor. 
 This is Pastor Joe and I:

The title of this conference was called Foundations of faith.
(A school of healing and impartation) And it was presented by Global awakening.

                             Randy Clark:     
                                   Paul King:  

And Tom Jones:

My life is forever changed by this conference because God forever has touched my heart by this!
God has used this conference to increase my faith. And let me tell you, my faith is increased.
I have been praying to God about the gifts of the Spirit and was ready to receive. And When Randy gave us a better wisdom on the gift of "Words of knowledge" I received! 
Randy asked if anyone had a word of knowledge to please stand and share, I felt a pain in my throat for a few seconds and I knew in my spirit I just had a word of knowledge! The enemy continued to place the thoughts my head saying "It's false! No one is going to stand up. I thought for a second but then it occurred to me. Who am I here to please?  I knew if I went up there, there would be a possibility no one would stand up, there would be a possibility I would make a complete fool of myself. But I didn't care what people thought! I knew whether people stood up or not Jesus would be pleased because I obeyed! So, with nervous feet I stood up and said "Someone has a pain in their throat and I received another one right after with an "eye irritation"  About four or five people stood up and I received the opportunity to pray over each one. three out of five felt eighty to one hundred percent better afterwards and one of them felt better the next day!  It was so awesome that The Lord could use me for that! Not because of who I am but because of who He is!  There is Power in the Name Jesus!
The worship was absolutely amazing! I could just feel the presence of  God in that place! People were screaming shouting Halleluiah and just worshiping as if no one was watching! Everyone was touched that night! One thing I will never forget was when I was laying down just praising Jesus, Randy told everyone to grab hands. I was just so wrapped up in the Spirit I wasn't even paying attention until the hands of two little girls put their sweet hands in mine and one put both of their hands on my legs. I was super touched and could just feel the love of God through these children.  And when Randy told everyone to hug someone you felt comfortable with, this young girl came and hugged me. I was super touched! I have never seen a child worship God like this girl did! Both hands up, crying, and bowing down to Jesus. I loved what I saw and was sad that out of twenty years of living this was the first time I saw a child sincerely worship God, knowing what she was doing! Randy and Tom prayed over all of us young adults. I instantly felt fuller! I can't wait to take what God has given me and share it with the world!
So many people that night were healed from metal inside them, back pains and so much more! Praise GOD!
 They had a cafe at the church with delish muffins!!
