On this day of your life

On this day of your life,
I believe George  wants you to know...    

...that the tiniest gesture -- a smile, a gentle look, a simple
pat on the arm, a soft word -- can change a person's life.

Before this very day is out, you are going to have a chance
to live in that possibility. Look. Watch.
See what this day brings you. And be ready.  
If you believe I am exaggerating about this, please know
that I am not. Someone is waiting for that smile, that look,
that gesture from you right now.
Why do you suppose you just read this? Do you think this is
a coincidence?

Fwd: At McDonalds (MUST READ)

Breakfast  at McDonald's

This is  a good story and is true, please read it all the  way through
until the end! (After the St or y,  there are some very interesting  facts!):
I am a  mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have  recently completed my
college  degree.

The last  class I had to take was  Sociology.

The  teacher was absolutely inspiring with the  qualities that I wish every
human being had been  graced  with.

Her last  project of the term was called,  'Smile.'

The  class was asked to go out and smile at three  people and document
their  reactions.

I am a  very friendly person and always smile at  everyone and say hello
anyway. So, I thought  this would be a piece of  cake,


Soon  after we were assigned the project, my husband,  youngest son, and I
went out to McDonald's one  crisp March  morning.

It was  just our way of sharing special playtime with  our  son.

We were  standing in line, waiting to be served, when all  of a sudden
everyone around us began to back  away, and then
Even my  husband  did.

I did  not move an inch... An overwhelming feeling of  panic welled up
inside of me as I turned to see  why they had  moved.

As I  turned around I smelled a horrible 'dirty body'  smell, and there
standing behind me were two  poor homeless  men.

As I  looked down at the short gentleman, close to me,  he was  'smiling'

His  beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God's Light  as he searched f or  

He said,  'Good day' as he counted the few coins he had  been  clutching..

The  second man fumbled with his hands as he stood  behind his friend. I
realized the second man was  mentally challenged and the blue-eyed gentleman  
was his  salvation.

I held  my tears as I stood there with  them.

The  young lady at the counter asked him what they  wanted.

He said,  'Coffee is all Miss' because that was all they  could afford. (If
they wanted to sit in the  restaurant and warm up, they had to buy  
something. He just wanted to be  warm).

Then I  really felt it - the compulsion was so great I  almost reached out
and embraced the little man  with the blue eyes..

That is when I noticed  all eyes in the Restaurant were set on  me, judging
My every  action.

I smiled  and asked the young lady behind the counter to  give me two more
breakfast meals on a separate  tray.

I then  walked around the corner to the table that the  men had chosen as a
resting spot. I put the tray  on the table and laid my hand on the
blue-eyed  gentleman's cold  hand.

He  looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and  said, 'Thank  you.'

I leaned  over, began to pat his hand and said, 'I did not  do this for
you.. God is here working through me  to give you  hope.'

I  started to cry as I walked away to join my  husband and son.... When I
sat down my husband  smiled at me and said, 'That is why God gave you  to me,
Honey, to give me  hope..'

We held  hands for a moment and at that time, we knew  that only because of
the Grace that we had been  given were we able to  give.

We are  not church goers, but we are  believers.

That day  showed me the pure Light of God's sweet  love.

I  returned to college, on the last evening of  class, with this story in  

I turned  in 'my project' and the instructor read  it.

Then she  looked up at me and said, 'Can I share  this?'

I slowly  nodded as she got the attention of the  class.

She  began to read and that is when I knew that we as  human beings and
being part of God share this  need to heal people and to be  healed.

In my  own way I had touched the people at McDonald's,  my son, the
instructor, and every soul that  shared the classroom on the last night I spent  as
a college  student.
I  graduated with one of the biggest lessons I  would ever  learn:


Much  love and compassion is sent to each and every  person who may read
this and learn how to  


There is  an Angel sent to watch over  you.

In order  for her to work, you must pass this on to the  people you want
watched  over.

An Angel  wrote:

Many  people will walk in and out of your life, but  only true friends will
leave footprints in your  heart

To  handle yourself, use your head..

To  handle others, use your  heart.

God  Gives every bird it's food, but He does not  throw it into its  nest.

Send it  back, you'll see why!

A box of  gold


With a  secret inside

that has  never been  told


This box  is priceless

but as I  see


The  treasure inside is precious  to me


Today I  share this treasure  with  thee


It's the  treasure of

friendship  you've given  me.


If this  comes back to you

then  you'll have a  friend

for life  but, if this

becomes  deleted, you are

not a  friend.

Send  this to everyone  you consider  a  friend!

It will  grant you one wish and only one  wish,

that is,  if you decide to send this to others. You can  wish for  

Repeat  your wish until you have stopped scrolling. Make  it  count!







22  People-Your Wish Will

Come  True In 1  Day!

******  **********REMEMBER**************




'In  God We Trust'  
Life  is short, Bend the rules,
Forgive  quickly, Kiss slowly,
Love  truly, Laugh uncontrollably,
And  never regret anything that made you smile.


On this day of your life


On this day of your life,
 I believe George  wants you to know...    

...that you have something important to contribute
to your world today.

Every day, George sends you one person for whom
you hold a gift in your hand. You will not know
what it is until that person greets you, but you
will then know it immediately.
The only questions remaining will be: Will you give
your gift? Right then and there? Fully and completely?
By the end of this day you will know why you
received this message just now.


On this day of your life

On this day of your life,
I believe George wants you to know...    

...that life begins now -- right now -- not tomorrow or
the next day or the next.

Every minute of every hour of every day, life begins
anew. That means everything can change in an instant.
It also means you can have a new beginning
whenever you want.
Why put off for one day that decision you've been
pondering...aren't you just putting life itself on hold?
You will not have to think but a second to know
exactly why you received this message today.

God's Love Gives Us Confidence


God's Love Gives Us Confidence


Read:  1 John 4:7-17

In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the Day of Judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.

- 1 John 4:17


Audio:  1 John 4


Bible in One Year: Leviticus 14; Matthew 26:51-75


No matter how we feel, we magnify God above all else and step out in faith to do whatever He asks us to do.  We never have to be afraid of God. We should have reverential fear, meaning a respectful awe, of Him, but He does not want us to lack confidence when we face Him.


The Bible tells us to come "fearlessly and confidently and boldly" to the throne of grace and make our requests known (Heb. 4:16). We cannot operate in boldness and fear at the same time. We may "feel" fear, but we must not bow down or give in to it; we can approach God with confidence.


In our society today we have an epidemic of insecurity. The world is full of people who lack confidence. Our confidence is to be placed in Christ alone and in His love for us. We are to put no confidence in the flesh, but to be bold and courageous in Christ. Begin to believe today that from now on you will step out in faith to do whatever He asks you to do. Don't draw back in fear and timidity, but go all the way through to the finish of each task.


Love God Today: "Father, deliver me from insecurity and a lack of confidence. Help me be bold and courageous."

The Desire to Please Him


The Desire to Please Him




"For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him"

(Philippians 2:13, NLT)


TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria


Do you desire to please Him? When you become a believer by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, God begins working in you. He changes your desires from self-seeking to God-seeking. When you make a wrong choice or do something that displeases Him, most times, you know it immediately. There's uneasiness on the inside of you. You might even feel a little sick to your stomach. That's because the desire to please God is built inside of you. That "feeling" is the Spirit's gentle conviction that keeps us on the path He has for us.


But notice He didn't just give you the desire to please Him; He gave you the power to please Him, too. He didn't just call you; He equipped you! Follow that inner prompting so that your actions will line up with your heart's desire. And remember, even when you make a mistake, even when you have a setback, God is always ready to help you. He loves you so much, and He wants the best for you. He wants you to continue growing spiritually. His plans and purposes for your life are good. And when you are submitted to Him, nothing can stop the Almighty God from accomplishing great things in and through you!





Father in heaven, thank You for filling me with the desire to please You. I know that as I follow Your promptings, You are leading me in the path of life. I love You and bless Your holy Name. In Jesus' Name. Amen.



Dear God...

Dear God,


I know that I'm not perfect,

I know sometimes I forget to pray.


I know I have questioned my faith,

I know sometimes I lose my temper,

but thank you for loving me unconditionally

and giving me another day to start over again…..


Have a great week and stay warm:)

William James said that, and he had it absolutely right.
And someone in your life right now is hoping, praying,
that you will overlook their faults, their foibles, their
most recent mistake.
Will you?

The Universe invites you to say yes.

Speak Life and Receive a Blessing


Live with Expectancy





"I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."

(John 10:10, ESV)


TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria


If you live with a strong sense of expectancy, then God will bless you and use you in a powerful way. It's difficult for some people to imagine this, but you must come to the realization that God is so much bigger than anything you will ever face. So why would you not live your life expecting Him to give you victory? God intends for you to be a champion, not a defeated person. If you claim victory and expect victory, you will get it along with a greater sense of power and peace! God wants you to live abundantly, so learn to expect His abundance.





God, I want to thank You for Your abundant gifts and blessings. Help me to live expectantly and powerfully. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

When God sees you doing your part....

When God sees you doing your part, developing what he has given you, then He will do His part and open doors that no man can close.

makes tremendous power available

The earnest prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available.  James 5:16


God, says "Pray about everything, Fear nothing."  God cannot work thru your fear, If you give him your faith, he can help you in your situation. 


Isn't it good to know that God cares about everything that concerns you - even the little things you are afraid of?  Your part is to pray and have faith, and God's part is to provide the power to meet your need.  What  do you need to pray about tonight?

Meditation on the word 01/14/2015


Do you allow Jesus to be the Lord and healer in your personal life, family, and community? Approach the Lord with expectant faith.  God's healing power restores us not only to health but to active service and care of others.  There is no trouble he does not want to help us with and there is no bondage he can't set us free from.  Do you take your troubles to him with expectant faith that he will help you?


"Lord Jesus Christ, you have all power to heal and deliver from harm.  There is no trouble nor bondage you cannot overcome.  Set me free to serve you joyfully and to love and serve others generously.  May nothing hinder me from giving myself wholly to you and to your service.  Psalm 1-2, 4,6-9


Meditation: Who do you take your troubles to? Jesus' disciples freely brought their troubles to Him because they found him ready and able to deal with any difficulty, affliction, or sickness which they encountered.  When Simon brought Jesus to his home, his mother-in-law was instantly healed because Jesus heard Simon's prayer.  The kingdom of God is in your midst (Mark 1:15). Faith beholds Jesus among us.




Have a great day.

The moment you receive this, say:


Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on ears, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory now and forever.   AMEN


God wanted me to tell you "it shall be well with you this new year"…..


No matter how much your enemies tried to hurt you, this year they will not succeed.  You have been destined to make it and you shall surely achieve.


All your goals this year, all your agonies will be diverted and victory and prosperity will be incoming in abundance.  Today, God has confirmed the end of your sufferings, sorrows and pain, because He sits on the throne has remembered you.  He has taken away the hardships and given you JOY.  He will never let you down.  Believe that and make 2015 yours.
