During the hustle and bustle of Christmas, sometimes we lose our focus on the true meaning of Christmas. One of my prayer partners sent her prayer to me today. It is a beautiful reminder that Jesus is the reason for the season. May you have a Merry Christmas reflecting on our saviors birth. 🎄

Gracious heavenly Father, we want to thank you and praise you in advance here, for that you and your son were both willing that Jesus should do what he did on the cross so that we have that hope of eternal life of eternity with you. We praise you for your tender loving kindness, goodness, patience, directions, instructions, mercy, forgiveness, and your Holy Spirit, that is ever-present with us, to guide us in truth and love, in all things.
We praise you, Lord, that we walk in newness of life because of what you did on the cross for us all. Thank you, Lord, for putting it in our minds, and thank you that it comes out of our mouths, that we speak life healing and peace over all things. Also, we praise you and thank you that we are CIA-IIC members.

Hallelujah and praise you sweet Jesus you won the victory on the cross ! And we have a victorious life in You! Amen

Word of Promise!

“Every word you give me is a miracle word— how could I help but obey? Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning. Mouth open and panting, I wanted your commands more than anything. Turn my way, look kindly on me, as you always do to those who personally love you. Steady my steps with your Word of promise so nothing malign gets the better of me. Rescue me from the grip of bad men and women so I can live life your way. Smile on me, your servant; teach me the right way to live. I cry rivers of tears because nobody’s living by your book!”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭119:129-136‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Live To The Fullest!


“You are right and you do right, God; your decisions are right on target. You rightly instruct us in how to live ever faithful to you. My rivals nearly did me in, they persistently ignored your commandments. Your promise has been tested through and through, and I, your servant, love it dearly. I’m too young to be important, but I don’t forget what you tell me. Your righteousness is eternally right, your revelation is the only truth. Even though troubles came down on me hard, your commands always gave me delight. The way you tell me to live is always right; help me understand it so I can live to the fullest.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭119:137-144‬ ‭MSG‬‬


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

During the Christmas season, it can be merry and bright. For some, it is depressing and unmanageable because of deaths in the family, money problems, and many other reasons. It’s important to remember the verses above not just to help you through difficulties but also to continue your faith. God has a plan for each of us, and it doesn’t matter what we are going through; His plan is still in place. If we are always rejoicing, we focus on the good in our lives. Giving thanks keeps us appreciative of God’s gifts. Please join me in prayer this morning. Dear heavenly Father, thank you so much for us just being able to get out of bed this morning and go out and do the things you have set out for us to do. Touch our hearts today and show us all the good things that you’ve placed in our paths every day. Thank you for the opportunity that we have today to lay our burdens at your feet, helping us to be able to go out and help others. Please watch over us and protect us today with all the bad weather that we’ve been having, and watch over all the other drivers as well. Please show us what needs to be done today, Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious name, amen!
