The first day of Spring is here!
Typically in the South, we associate Spring with allergies, hay fever and mosquitoes! But in the Bible, it always represents new growth, fresh starts and emerging life. So here's a thought for this new beginning:
Lately I've come to the realization that it's easier to say "Lord, I give You my life," than it is to say "Lord, I give you this day." "My life" is a generic, lump sum. But "this day" is different. Saying "this day" is me serving Him even after that person cut me off in traffic on the way to work today. "This day" is the abrasive cashier at Walmart or the breakout on my face that popped up right before pictures. It's the sickness in my body that won't go away, or the bill that came up suddenly when there's no money in the bank to cover it. "This day" is the nitty-gritty... and it's right where He wants to be.
Show me Your unfailing love. Show me how to not just survive this day, but to thrive in it. I'm trusting You, THIS DAY.
Let your Spring be an opportunity to start fresh with Him. It will make all the difference.
Love to you all!
“Father, today is not about me. Help me to bless, help, and love your people. Use me to make an impact. Help me to live godly life today. Your will, not mine. I’m on your program, not mine. Direct me, guide me. I reject my selfishness and self-entitlement, I give them to you. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

🙏🏻СВЯТОЕ ПРИЧАСТИЕ ▪️Главным событием в жизни каждого христианина должно быть Таинство Святого Причащения, когда мы соединяемся с Христом Богом, принимая под видом хлеба и вина истинные Тело и Кровь Иисуса Христа. Причастие является главным смыслом, центром нашего богослужения, которое совершается ради этого Таинства. Причащаться нам заповедал Сам Спаситель, установивший это Таинство на Тайной Вечере.
▪️Причащаясь, мы уже здесь, на земле, обретаем единение с Христом Богом, оставление грехов, имеем утешение Святого Духа, помогающее преодолевать скорби этой жизни, неизбежные для тех, кто идет за Христом и верен Его заповедям. Мы приобретаем силы для жизни, приобщаясь Источнику Жизни. Принимая Тело и Кровь Христовы, мы постепенно исцеляемся духовно, обретаем силы для борьбы с грехом, который ранит и убивает наши душу и тело. Происходит постепенное освобождение от тирании внешней силы, от действия духов злобы поднебесной, которые, пользуясь испорченностью нашей человеческой природы, ее наклонностью ко греху, пытаются нам диктовать свою волю.
▪️Но такие благодатные действия от причащения происходит лишь тогда, когда мы приступаем ко Святой Чаше с сокрушенным сердцем, осуждением себя, просьбой об оставлении грехов и помиловании на Страшном Суде, смирением, благоговением, верою и любовью. Приступая ко Причащению в ином состоянии, мы причащаемся, что называется, «недостойно», в осуждение.
▪️Причащаясь на Литургии, мы также соединяемся с другими христианами в единое Тело Христово — Церковь, которая есть собрание верующих во Христа, объединенных вокруг Евхаристической Чаши. Поэтому причащение на службе, кроме личного освящения, это ещё и проявление любви друг к другу, желание быть вместе во Христе.
Welcome! My name is Kathie and I’m so grateful that you’re here! I’ve been called to start this account to share the abundance of love God has placed in my heart with others. I know struggle. I’ve had more than my fair share in this lifetime. As we walk together you’ll get to know me, my many battles and how I came to faith along with my testimony of what it’s done in my life, and the lives of those around me.
The account name came about because over the last 2 years, I’ve been called a “Baby Christian” more times than I can count. I used to get offended, not understanding why other Christians were being so judgemental of me. Until God softened my heart and told me to use it in his name rather than being offended and so here I am. I plan to be excited for Christ as long as I’m alive. I plan to walk with as much enthusiasm, excitement, love and joy as I do right now in this moment as long as I’m alive. I plan to share His message empowering others in their lives to wake up to the power of Christ Alive within them & start living their lives on purpose.
I know how stressful and discouraging every day life can become. I’ve experienced the overwhelm of chaotic schedules, demanding careers and financial pressures and the longing for more in life. I’ve been in the trap of never ending people pleasing with no gratification, acknowledgment and increasing demands for more. I’ve questioned countless times if there‘s more to life than this mundane merry -go-round with a burning desire in my soul to MORE!🔥 But this isn’t the lifestyle or mindset that God planned for us. He said that You are a Masterpiece. He said no weapon formed against you shall prosper. He said He has plans for You for good to give you a future and hope.
I WILL speak life into you. Your life, your hopes your dreams through Him. I will speak life into your brokenness through Him. I will be your Sister and walk with you.
Thank you so much for being here. God bless you my friend.
Prayer is the best armor against the things that we all go through on a daily basis in our lives because it isn't just asking for what we desire, but when we pray we obtain closeness with God that we wouldn't be otherwise able to obtain. When we pray and when we really believe in the things that we pray, we establish a rapport with God that symbolizes us giving away our weaknesses, and taking in his strength to cover where we may lack.
Pray to God for comfort in times of sorrow and for His will to be done in every situation that you are experiencing in life. Not only must you speak and pray things into existence but you must also believe with all of your heart when you are blessed enough to hear from God that what he says will come to past. Don't doubt, and don't try to take things into your own hands, just believe and everything you need to see revealed, will be.
