Don't Let the Devil Make You Mad!
Authored by amentinicole on Wed, Oct 05 2011 - 02:14 PM
Well my sisters and brothers in the Lord, I was going to write about how the Lord rejoices over us daily. But something came up, and I feel the Lord has changed the topic. So I am going to write about our adversary, the devil, the evil one. The thing is church, he is sneaky! He knows we are blessed and that he can't ...Read Blog »
Be Encouraged, God Loves You and He's Faithful!
Authored by amentinicole on Mon, Oct 03 2011 - 05:59 PM
God loves us so much! Today I read the scripture in Romans about how nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ. Nothing can separate us- not an angel, not a demon, not our own short-comings- nothing! That just blessed my spirit so much, reading that scripture. If you are worrying today because you have some ...Read Blog »
Choose to be Happy!
Authored by amentinicole on Thu, Sep 29 2011 - 05:24 PM
We must make up our own minds that we are going to be happy! God cannot do this for us. Sometimes we can allow ourselves to become overwhelmed with some burden that we haven't given completely to God. We need to give it to God, and then let it go. We need to choose that we will feed our mind with good, sound, healthy, ...Read Blog »
God Put a Word in My Spirit This Morning!
Authored by amentinicole on Tue, Sep 27 2011 - 06:46 AM
My have I got a word for you! My precious sister in the Lord, Sarah, commented on my last blog that it would be hard to top it. But Sarah, the Lord always has something good to say, and His wonders never cease! Hallelujah! This is a disclaimer, especially for men: I feel this is a real word from the Lord, and in no way do I mean to ...Read Blog »
Repent and Let Your Mind Be Healed!
Authored by amentinicole on Mon, Sep 26 2011 - 06:23 PM
Alot of times we don't really believe God's promises. We trust God for Salvation...but we don't trust God for the Abundant Life. In John 10:10, Jesus says: "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." This scripture ...Read Blog »
What Is Stopping You From Being Positive?
Authored by amentinicole on Sat, Sep 24 2011 - 06:25 PM
It isn't always easy to be positive in the world that we live in. It seems like so much is wrong. Every day that we wake up and face the world is a victory for us. Every day we are learning, and growing, and becoming better, more loving and forgiving people. We are being conformed to the image of Christ. Christ in us ...Read Blog »
Never Stop Dreaming!
Authored by amentinicole on Fri, Sep 23 2011 - 04:51 PM
We all have dreams. Sometimes those dreams take a lifetime to unfold. The enemy has been very active in seeking to thwart the dreams of the Righteous. But you choose every day who is going to get the glory in your life, and just by choosing to walk with Jesus every day, we overcome the devil. As long as there is ...Read Blog »
Open Your Heart to God's Love!
Authored by amentinicole on Tue, Sep 20 2011 - 12:45 AM
You are truly the apple of God's eye! He predestined you to be in Christ, in the Beloved, before time began and the world was ever created. He cares for you. Really. No joke. Jesus. Cares. About. You! He wants to take all your pain away. He is not judging you. He is not condemning you. He is fighting for you in Heaven, ...Read Blog »
God Wants to Give You the Desires of Your Heart!
Authored by amentinicole on Sun, Sep 18 2011 - 09:35 PM
God wants to give you the desires of your heart. We must be patient and wait on God, because that is all He is asking us to do. God has His own timing, and although He doesn't always answer our prayers the way we would like him to or as fast as we would like Him to, He never forgets about us and is always working in our lives to ...Read Blog »
You Are Blessed to BE a BLESSING!
Authored by amentinicole on Fri, Sep 16 2011 - 09:25 PM
Today I found myself in the presence of many people from all walks of life. I don't have a car, so I take the bus everywhere. Today my travels took me to the local Goodwill. I passed a man who reeked of liquor, who I am sure is probably very broken hearted and feeling defeated in his life. A homeless girl came up to me and ...Read Blog »
I Am Feeling So Good Right Now!
Authored by amentinicole on Mon, Sep 12 2011 - 06:25 PM
Praise God, I feel so good right now! I've been having a funky day, and I always seem to forget about God on my funky days. But He never forgets about us, isn't that wonderful?! I've been trying to figure out what I want from the Lord. I really just want Him though! On days like today, where He just shows up out of nowhere, it ...Read Blog »
Be a Giver!
Authored by amentinicole on Sun, Sep 11 2011 - 01:04 AM
Hello beloved ones! Today I'd like to challenge you to be a Giver. The Bible says that God loves a cheerful giver, and that we reap what we sow. There are so many people who are hurting in the world. I am specifically talking about giving money to causes that support those in need. But there are also other ways you can give. ...Read Blog »
Letting the Lord Heal and Change Me!
Authored by amentinicole on Thu, Sep 08 2011 - 07:28 PM
I am pressing into the Lord and pursuing holiness. I am asking Him to free me from all bondages from the past. I have been a smoker for 9 years and I am finally ready to give it up. I prefer God's peace to the peace of a cigarette, and I am letting God free me from that bondage. I have severe anxiety and today I read in one of ...Read Blog »
The Faithfulness of the Lord
Authored by amentinicole on Sun, Sep 04 2011 - 12:46 AM
God is really blessing my son, Tyler. I only get to see my son once a week because I don't have custody of him, but I saw him today and he was so happy. He's had some struggles since I have been removed from being a bigger part of his life, but all I ask God to do is just be the same Savior to him that he's been to me. My son is ...Read Blog »
The World Doesn't Offer More Than God!
Authored by amentinicole on Thu, Sep 01 2011 - 08:21 PM
I want to do my best for the Lord. I want to be led by Him, and I want to have fellowship with Him. Today He told me to "Press into Him". There is really nothing we are called to do but love Jesus. Out of our relationship with God stems all of the other things we are taught to do. If you really love God, you will want to ...Read Blog »
The Delusion of Merlin
Authored by roundtable on Wed, Aug 31 2011 - 11:50 PM
Some people consider Merlin to be merely a fictional character. That appears to be less and less likely as new pieces of historical information slowly appear about the Arthurian era. Whether he is historical or not, he has had a significant influence on contemporary culture, not always for the better. The Tolkien character of Gandalf in ...Read Blog »
God's Amazing Unconditional Love!
Authored by amentinicole on Thu, Aug 18 2011 - 07:28 PM
I love the Lord. I am seeking to live a life surrendered to Him. I am ready to let go of the past, and old ways of doing things that came from my flesh. I want to walk in the Spirit, after the ways of the Spirit. I just feel like I am being bathed in Jesus. I feel joy, I feel peace, and I know I'm not perfect yet and never ...Read Blog »
Thirsting After Jesus
Authored by amentinicole on Wed, Aug 17 2011 - 11:18 PM
I believe there IS a GOD who has been looking after me all of my life. That God came to Earth a little over 2,000 years ago, and died on the cross at calvary for me. He has the Name that is ABOVE all names- JESUS!!! I am learning not to exalt myself, and to submit to him. I am surrendering as much a I can to His Presence. I ...Read Blog »

So, recently i have been challenged with what career i want to pursue after highschool, and it came down to becoming either a dental hygienist or a nurse.

Christians form a slim majority in the US (as witnessed by the 2004 election) a significant minority in Canada and a sizable majority in Mexico (mainly in rural areas).With this significant presence are we helping out our fellow Christians? Or are we being influenced ...Read Blog »
Peace Israel and Hope May 2011
Authored by roundtable on Sat, May 21 2011 - 12:08 AM
By dragging his feet rather than addressing the problem Mr Netanyahu has let the issue fester until it has to be addressed at a time that is not opportune for Israel. 2010 would have been an ideal time for Israel to set the agenda and negotiate from a position of strength. Continuing to build settlements was not a good move, however if ...Read Blog »
