Psalm 30:5, "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."
Last evening I let a situation (sore throat, headache, achy joints and a messy house) get the best of me and Satan found an opening to attack. But the devil is a liar. Today is a new beginning and I am jumping with joy, joy joy, down in my heart! As soon I arrived at my 8 year old's school, he ran to me with a big smile! His smile was just radiant and I saw the innocence and love glowing in him. I thank God for giving me this new beginning. I know that in His favour is life. Today I may be down but I know that tomorrow I will be up because weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning! Satan is defeated, in the name of Jesus, and he can attack me any way he wishes, but I serve a God who blesses me with favour each and every day and for that I am very grateful.
Glory to God.

Today, I am thanking God, sincerely thanking God for His grace! Sometimes, I get this overwhelming joy and happiness in my heart that I just cannot explain, sometimes it just makes me want to get up and dance about the place!! Last night, I was completing the second chapter of my book, but I was also listening to XM Channel 32, the Praise Channel, and the music, it was just ministering to my heart! I had to stop write and just praise God! God is good to me; He has been good to you too! I just kept asking myself, what would I do without grace, where would I be without grace? It is because of grace that I am sanctified and redeemed.
As Paul reminded the people of Philippi in the Book of Philippians 3:12-15: “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in
Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.”
Because of grace, I am pressing forward, there is no looking back for this Sister! I pray that each of you will continue to press forward as you continue to mature in your walk with Christ, continue to magnify God’s name, and keep your lights shining for all to see! Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!
To God be the glory!

My dear friends, please know I have not stopped writing my blogs. However, God is using me to spread the Gospel via witnessing. I am doing some outreach and also working on my book. I am now on the second chapter, which is to be completed by October 26, 2010.
My friends, please keep me in prayer as I work for the Lord, as I do what God wants me to do, as I go where God wants me to go.
I thank God for you and for your support. Please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2 Timothy 4:1-5
In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
