In 2019 Use Your Bible For Your A-Z Resource Guide



Your Bible For Your A-Z Resource Guide


2019 is here! With each new calendar year comes new goals, new experiences and sometimes new challenges. With these new challenges we sometimes forget that we have our Bible as our reference guide to help us along the way. 

Attitude is everything, try your best to keep a positive attitude in any situation, it plays a major role on your health. Take this year to be bold to explore your faith and share your good news from the Bible. Have the courage to share your testimony. 

Use more discernment, taking more time to think through decisions. Approach each day with more enthusiasm. Challenge yourself to be more friendly and make more friends this year.  Find ways to give, if you don't have much to give; a couple of hours of your time could go a long way in someones life.  Take the time to learn more about the Holy Spirit. Don't hold back with what is right and take Initiative for your future. Experience joyfulness by taking time to be still and enjoy the moment. Increase your knowledge with reading daily. Practice listening while using active listening skills. Develop your maturity by increasing your objective thinking skills. 

Make this the year to reach out to your neighbors. Have a overflow of joy, peace and hope daily while reading scripture. Keep your perseverance with your goals this year.  Find a place where you can have quiet while taking a deep breath and feel your surroundings. Do repentance daily with prayer. Practice self-control in any situation that is presented. Have thankfulness for life and all that you have surrounding you.  Keep wisdom close, by retaining your understanding. Each day is a celebration of victory, we are free of bondage. Use your knowledge by looking for truth to reach wisdom. Use the Bible as your Xenagogy (guide book) through life. Have youthfulness like Timothy and Esther in spirit, faith and purity. Live your life like Zion.

GRATITUDE - Appreciating Each Day!


Start 2018 with gratitude by appreciating each day!

Waking Up This Morning- Every morning when I wake up I say thank you to YAH (God) and Yahshua (Jesus) for waking me up. Then I say I love you to both. I touch my heart when I am doing this or talking to the Lord. Share the joy by saying Good Morning (God's Morning) to someone. 

Opening Your Eyes- Just appreciating the ability to open my eyes. I could be living in darkness (for example like someone's hand covering my eyes.) Ability to see my family in front of me. Waking up to my husband. Watching my kids grow up. Being able to see the Truth, given Spiritual Discernment of what is right and what is wrong. Share the joy by telling someone how much you appreciate them.

Having the Breath of Life-  The ability to take a nice deep breath. Enjoying the ability to inhale and exhale. Thankful to not be on oxygen or hooked up to a ventilator.  Take this joy in with a big stretch and yawn to get more oxygen in. 

Hearing All of Life - Being able to hear and not living in total silence. Living in Pasadena some of us get frustrated because we are woken up by the Pasadena Parrots. Yes, it is around six in the morning, but the sounds of the day are just beginning. The ability to hear other peoples day start around us. The laughs and the sayings of, "have a good day." Share the joy by asking how someone else is doing; maybe you can turn their day around by just hearing that you care.       


Smelling Life-  Enjoy the ability to smell. We experience so much through smell. In the morning we smell the dampness of the dew and the freshness of the flowers. Before we have our cup of coffee we smell the great aroma of the coffee first. We can smell the flavor of the food as it is being cooked.  Enjoy your favorite smells with your aroma therapy if it is someone or nature. 

In conclusion, a lot of times we take these things for granted but we really shouldn't. These are true Blessings. We shouldn't be looking towards things to make us happy. Just enjoy the simple basics of life and not worry about the things that other people have or what we feel like we don't have. Right now your rich with life and enjoy the day. Praise YAH (God) and thank Yahshua (Jesus) for his dying for our sins to see a better day. (John 3:16) Let it not all be in vain. Be present and enjoy life today!

Wow Jam Comes to Pasadena, CA this Weekend






This year Wow Jam will be Saturday August 26, 2017 at 1:00 P.M. in Pasadena, CA.  It takes place right in front of the City Hall. 100 Garfield Avenue Pasadena, CA 91101.

I have been to Wow Jam twice and it was a great experience. Thinking back on it, I remembered that this is where my daughter first ran. She literally ran before walked.

This year there will be over 12 churches, businesses and community organizations have joined with W.O.W. There are booths set up that provide free haircuts, bike repairs, health and vision screenings, grocery giveaways, makeovers and connections to community resources.

The event ends with a message of Christ's love and an invitation to accept Him as Lord and Savior. There are big pools set up for people to get baptized. There have been 447,275 people saved. Seeing so many people getting baptized by water is 
a beautiful thing. Something I will never forget and hope to see again this weekend. Seeing all these people giving up their past to walk into their future is a moment in time, where you can truly see love in the air.

May YHVH bless your coming days!

Have You Heard Of The Bible Project?

   
thebibleproject.com

I chose to talk about The Bible Project because of the appreciation that our Ministry and family has for their mission.  The Bible Project is a non-profit that provides a visual illustration video that breaks down the Bible, book by book. "Read Scripture" divides up each book into sections. It tells who the author is of each particular book. It breaks down the message into a simple to understand form. They always give their content for away for free. 

The design is like reading an outline at the end of a chapter then you read the chapter for yourself remembering the main points. It is broken down into 16 parts, that are not in chronological order but is placed to show the whole story.  This was designed to help people learn how to read the Bible and help those who find the Bible intimidating. Reading the Bible is an intellectual and Spiritual experience. 

The Bible Project has animations, podcast, books and print resources, the materials will be translated into different languages. When you visit thebibleproject.com you can see the latest project they're working on. Our Ministry gives a monthly donation to support the mission. You can help them to continue to make these projects by giving a one-time gift or be a monthly supporter yourself.

May YHVH bless you coming days!

Why don't many Christians Celebrate The Biblical New Year? ( March 2-3 2017)


Image result for biblical new year



The reason why many Christians don't celebrate the Biblical New Year because it dates back to Roman Emperor Constantine. The first Council of Nicaea 325 a.d., when they created the new man-made Universal Christian Religion, separating themselves from the original Biblical Holy Sacred traditions given to Israel by God YHVH to Moses. As time moves on, the break-offs of the Universal Christian Religion took the traditions and beliefs created by the Universal Christian Religion, also adopting other pagan “holy” days (holidays) into the Universal Christian Religion. Leaving YHVH's Biblical Holy Calendar with symbolic festivals of past and future events, established to teach and remind us of the promises God has kept, leaving the calendar behind.

The Biblical New Year is the start of the first month; Abib (Aviv)/Nisan of the New Year, made sacred and Holy by our Creator and Father, YHVH. This time-keeping calendar was created for Holy festivals helping Israel and those of faithful believers of Yeshua to memorialize symbolic events of past and present, such as Passover, Resurrection Day, Weekly Sabbath and even the second coming of Christ Yeshua’s Feast of Trumpets.

Why is it important? Time is not given to us to waste but for a deeper account of the understanding of Salvation, the New Covenant and the Second Coming of the King. Understand, the HOLY Calendar doesn't just cease, because most of mankind has stopped using it, never used it or even altered it.


Here are some examples of how the calendar works.In the Biblical Calendar, the "Day" starts in the evening (dusk to dusk): I.E. ~ Dusk, Evening, Dawn, Morning, Afternoon, Dusk. When looking at how all the new months start at the sliver of the New Moon, not the absent moon, nor full moon. We get the Weekly Sabbath by the start of the Biblical New Year day, being the first day of the month, then count to the seventh day, then you would be following the Weekly Sabbath.



YHVH plans have and will always be in motion, the Calendar is only a glimpses of “time travel” per say. It’s not a code, but a reminder, not a checklist, but a gauge of things to come. It’s better than Outlook and Google calendars, it’s a yearly reminder that the Almighty God has created for a reminder of HOPE!


May YHVH Bless your coming days!

Book Pick: Venture Mom From Idea To Income In Just 12 Weeks


www.venturemom.com

The book is Venture Mom written by Holly Hurd. My favorite quote from this book is, "Create your business around something that taps both into your experience and your passion." This book gives real life advice and tips with real-life stories of successful Moms. The book begins with a Q&A to get to know what you enjoy and what you would want to do. 

Some ideas that are covered in the book are:

Personal Chef /Meal Service
Designing Playrooms
Photography
Skin Care Line
Creating an App
Writing a Novel
Starting a Class
Creating a Product
Creating a Newsletter
Creating in Fashion
Creating a helpful website

This book gives you the steps of creating a business from beginning to end; by using a twelve-week plan by writing everything out in a notebook. How to get the basics of what is the problem and the solution. Who you do your business for. Where they find you. It is recommended to get input from your friends and family about your business idea. If they like the idea and would they use the product or service.  There are suggestions on how to get your name out there and network. One of these ways is to go out and be a speaker and getting your "elevator pitch down."  

In closing, I say try your idea. You could have a solution to a small problem or huge problem. The idea could help with relieving stress for someone or help with their everyday routine. Always remember every day is an opportunity.
