Some people see walking takes too long, But I say with walking you can’t go wrong, Why should you rush away trough life?You won’t get there if you’re running all the time.
I was listening to the lyrics to this song (walking by Mary Mary) this morning and it hit me, they were saying; "how you doing, how you doing, how you doing  bye bye" meaning I am walking with God. Do we learn to walk with God in the same way that we learned to walk as babies? I remember teaching my nieces to walk and the walking was mostly by trial and error, standing across the room from them, and them taking wobbly footsteps towards us (family) as we called them from the distance. God says the same to us "Come to Daddy," and we keep falling down repeatedly as we try to get it right? trying to stand up but keep falling down.

There is not an area or detail in our life that God will not be willing to help us out with – no matter how small or trivial we think it may be, but keep walking with HIM and towards HIM. Their will be things to come and throw us off and hinder the walk, but just keep moving.  God sends help...oh yes he does!, the Holy Spirit is called “the Helper” in the Bible, which mean it is now His job to help you in every area of your life. So what hinders our walk?  the multiplicity of things in our lives get in the way of our walk with God. They take time and energy that we don't have to waste. We need to be praying that our walk is straight and we are diligent in following, listening and being obedient. How do we do this?  Prayer, Jesus spent long hours in prayer: Luke 6:12: "And it came to pass in those days, that He went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God." This is perhaps the the most neglected part of our walk. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says to "pray without ceasing".  I am walking, talking and spending time with the Lord and me personally I can't let nothing stop my walk and neither should you.  What did the song say?  " how you doing, how you doing, how you doing, bye bye.

Beautiful Women....

All around the world their are many different wedding gowns. Though many wedding traditions are specific to culture, one component of the ceremony remains universal: the beautiful dress of the bride. Some of the colors are exuberant and gorgeous to look upon. Many wedding dresses are different in variations in areas like the country, religion, tribe and the overall design, pattern. These versions of the wedding gown are also as beautiful as the accustomed white bridal gown, and are almost more interesting since these are not actually seen as much in american weddings. Western wedding dresses are usually wedding white which includes creamy colored shades such as eggshell, ecru, and ivory or "diamond white" which was my dress color. The colors of cultural wedding gowns have various meanings, some of the colors are universal such as purple for royalty or white for purity and so on. However what ever your culture or religion wear your dress! walk the aisle with beauty and grace, go on with your fabulous self.... "Al Vida" (which means good bye in Hindi) Have a blessed day.

Africa: colors and patterns are worn that represent their village.
China: Red, thats their color which represents to them joy & luck.
Japan: White silk kimono lined in red which symbolizes happiness & new beginning.
India: Silk Sari emroidered with many jewels, beads.
Irish: In Ireland, blue is the color of the brides.

Don't be discouraged. God is at work!

Every woman desire is to marry and start a family. I know that was my desire, I never really spoke of how God had to purge me and still is from a controlling spirit...Superwoman I can do it on my own....Yeah ok!  but in the process I learned somethings, got free from somethings, let of somethings go. I realized and grasped from my Pastor Tarran I could not enter a marriage with that spirit. There was issues within me that God was working out, and know He is not finished with me yet.... Philippians 1:6 (Amplified Bible)And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that goodwork] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.
God will complete what He starts we need to just give Him some time. I have learned that we will never be able to please God just on our own efforts, but through Jesus Christ and His work in you, We WILL become what God desires us to be. God is working on me and He always does a excellent job, but God is not finished yet. So let God have his perfect way and believe me everything will work out.  Au revoir! (French for Goodbye)

Philippians 2:13 (Amplified Bible)[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.

Enough is enough!

The enemy has been fighting folk! yes I said folk...we tend to find comfort in medicine, therapy, or someone giving us wrong advice. The best medicine of all is the word of God. Not sure why I am blogging this but someone needs to know that, the cure is not in your medicine chest. We have all tried various types of pills to cure a headache, backache, big toe ache what ever aches. Let's try God I have learned over the years and with me working in the medical field & pharmacy that their is a pill for almost everything. But what about a aching heart umm! have not seen that one on the shelf. God's Word is medicine — for any weakness or sickness in body, mind, finances, family, marriage, etc.  Like any medicine, God's Word must be taken to be effective. It will not work sitting on the shelf. And it has to be taken according to the directions you must complete the dose, take once or several times daily. The more of God's medicine you take, the better you will start to feel and the aches and pains, worries will diminish, thats a lifetime guarantee; not 7-10day as noted on medicine bottle. If we will follow God's directions as faithfully as you would follow the directions of a doctor and the medicine prescribed, we will see wonderful results.

20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the ssues of life.
