Word of the Day... December 21, 2014...


If you love me, obey my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. 18 No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. 19 Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. 20 When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.” John 14:15-21

I love the Gospel of John.  It is one of my favorite books in the Bible. I really like how the Lord has left us the Holy Spirit He is our Helper. The word “Helper” is the Greek word parakletos.  It means the one who is called alongside to help. Isn’t it wonderful to be instructed by the Author of the Book?  It is so wonderful to have the Holy Spirit to help us to understand His Word.  When he turns the light on for us it is light….Oh yeah now I get it!!!  It is our Aha moment when we realize how lucky we are to have the Holy Spirit with us every day in every way.  

I chuckle when I see my grandson try and figure something out or he is having a hard time with something and he will pull his shirt over his face and say “Holy Spirit, I really need you to help me through this mess”  (I told him that the Holy Spirit lives inside of his heart).  It is really hard not to laugh.  But when I reflect on it he is doing what every one of us should be doing.  Instead of relying on what we think we know or what we assume we can do, we should all be asking the Holy Spirit to guide us in every part of our life.  Can you imagine our lives and how they would change if they were controlled totally by the Holy Spirit? 

Take some time out today and spend it with Jesus.  He loves you so very much. I hope that you all have a blessed and Simply Heavenly day.

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night…




TONIGHT I PRAY that you worship the Lord Jesus continually.  I pray that you dwell in the beauty of His holiness. I pray that you appreciate the beauty that our Father has made for us all to admire and enjoy.  A beautiful rose a glorious sunset or the dynamic splendor of the oceans. Some people just rush past them never giving the Lord a thought or thank Him for all of the beauty He has gifted us with on this earth..  I pray that you proclaim HIS splendor in our world and the glory of HIS creation. Trust the Lord with all of your thoughts and prayers and never drift away from Him in these last days.  Keep your heart open to the Holy Spirit and when He warns you that you are slipping away from Him hold even tighter to His hand.  In Jesus name we pray, Amen and Amen… I Love you!!!   God bless you all!!!

A Change of Direction
We must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in our bodies.  —2 Corinthians 5:10

One morning as Alfred Nobel was reading the newspaper, he was shocked to find his name listed in the obituary column. It was a mistake, but nonetheless, there it was. He was stunned to see that he was primarily remembered as the man who invented dynamite. At that time in history, dynamite was used in great effect for warfare. It distressed Nobel to think that all he would be known for was inventing dynamite, something that was used to take the lives of others. 
  
As a result of reading this mistaken obituary, Nobel decided to change the course of his life. He committed himself to world peace and established what we know today as the Nobel Peace Prize. When the name Alfred Nobel is mentioned today, dynamite is rarely the first thing that comes to mind. Rather, we think of the prize that bears his name. It's all because Alfred Nobel decided to change the course his life was taking.

Another man, living centuries before, also changed the negative course his life was taking. His name was Paul, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus. Known as a relentless persecutor of the early church, he was determined to stop the spread of Christianity. But after a dramatic conversion on the Damascus Road, Paul devoted the rest of his life to preaching the gospel and building the church. Today we remember him as a missionary, church planter, and author of thirteen New Testament epistles.

If you were to somehow attend your own funeral and hang around during the time when people came to the microphone, what do you think they would say? For what would you be remembered? It isn't too late to change your direction.  

I really enjoy Greg Laurie’s teaching because he speaks to our heart.  It is not too late to make that change in your own life.  You can choose yourself how you want to be remembered later and then make the change!  For my life I choose to walk with Jesus.  I hope that you have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!

A Calm Heart in the Storm    
    The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 
—2 Timothy 4:18 

Paul could have a calm heart in the middle of the mother of all storms because he knew he was in the center of God's will for his life. He was on business for God.

In his prison cell back in Caesarea, Jesus Himself had stood by Paul and said, "Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified for Me in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness at Rome" (Acts 23:11). Then, in the middle of the storm out at sea, an angel stood by Paul with this message from God: "Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar" (Acts 27:24).

Bear witness at Rome . . . brought before Caesar . . .

Paul knew that God would get him to where he was supposed to be—at the right time, in the right place, and with whatever he needed to complete the job at hand. With these things in mind, Paul could even relax in the middle of a hurricane . . . just before a shipwreck. He knew he had heaven's business to transact in Rome, and he knew that God would get him through any difficulty along the way. He was walking in God's plan, and he could rest in the fact that it was God's responsibility to get him through—rough seas or not!

The same is true of our service to the King. No, we aren't assured of smooth sailing, and we're not promised immunity from shipwrecks (or viper bites!) along the way. But we are definitely assured of a safe arrival. Know this: As long as God has work for us to do here on earth, we will be here to do it. God will preserve us to do it. And when that work is done, it is done, and He'll bring us home to heaven—not a moment too soon and not a moment too late.  I loved this devotional today from Pastor Greg and I learned so much!!!  I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day!!! God bless you!!!

Word of the Day... December 18, 2014...


My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;  and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.  and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30

I want to listen to Jesus continually. He is my Shepherd and I want to hear only His voice.  I want to trust in Him completely for I belong to Him.  I take comfort in the fact that no one will be able to snatch me from Him.


I believe that we are all a part of one Body and each one of us has a part to play.  What we need to do is to sit down and ask ourselves, what is my part in the church?  How can Jesus use me?  I really believe that if we all start thinking like that, it will make a huge difference.  If we think like that, the Holy spirit can begin to move through us. So let’s not hide our light but let it shine brightly so the whole world can see it. I hope that you all have a Simply Heavenly Day!!!

Your Love Guard Me Through The Night…..



I Pray TONIGHT that every good gift assigned to your life be released to you... All held up blessings and harvest are opened for you by the hand of God! May you have a deep, holy, hunger for God's truth! Let all the enemies of your soul be confounded in Jesus name – I pray that His peace and wisdom, will cover your heart, soul and mind! I pray that all adversity will be converted to triumph in your life for the glory of God! The Lord will enable you to hear His direction clearly! NO MORE CONFUSION... You WILL walk in clarity!!! Through one man’s (Adam) sin, we all became sinful; however, through one man’s (Jesus) act of righteousness, we all have right standing with God (Romans 5:12-20). So we thank you for your love in sending your SON to give us the greatest gift, forgiveness of sin and an eternity with Him. In Jesus name, Amen and Amen I Love you all… God bless you!!!

But now there are many members,
 but one body. 1 Corinthians 12:20

The beautiful thing about being a member of the Body of Christ is we are not alone serving the Lord.  Each one of us is a single link in a very large and strong chain.  But if even one link is broken that chain will not function properly.

Look at an orchestra it is filled with different musicians that are all playing different instruments.  However, if even one musician is removed from that orchestra the symphony will be incomplete.

We need each other so that we can perform together in perfect harmony as the “Body of Christ.”  To have a symphony full of musicians that keep their eyes on the Conductor, that read and know the music so that they can function efficiently and play beautifully as the Conductor moves His hands to the beat.  God is the Great Conductor in this symphony of life.  

Much like the musical instruments in a symphony, we all have our own melody to play and when it’s all played together and in sync and in harmony, what a simply heavenly sound we make.  If one instrument is behind the beat, if one instrument is out of tune, the entire sound is out of balance.  God knows the notes of the symphony He is conducting, He can tell when even one beat is off.  That is why it is so important to keep our eyes fixed on Him and to know the Word so that we can follow His Will and Way for our lives.  Have a Simply Heavenly Wednesday!!!
