Christmas Blessings, Celebrating Christ, the Good Shepard

Joy to the world!  Let earth receive her king!  Merry Christmas and happy holiday season to your family from the SCW family.  Focus your hearts on the true reason for the season which is Christ our savior.  Really meditate on all he’s brought you through this year with a grateful heart and a fixed mind to keep trusting God.  Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the lord your God with all thine heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.”  Time to rejoice and celebrate with family and friends.  SCW has you covered for all your Christmas holiday needs, faith, food, entertaining and decorating.  The kids will be at the house and we’ll have a  very blessed dinner and time with them. They are big kids! Nice to see them all grown up and doing their own thing.I’m looking forward to an Amazing Christmas and New year! Don’t miss our last post of this year, New year’s post December 27th.

Verse of the Day:

  •  While you are being blessed, Do Not Forget those less fortunate ,like the hungry, homeless, lonely, elderly, and orphaned kids, they need our support.  So shout out today to all the  organizations serving Christmas dinner.  It can be as small as, dropping off a toy at a fire station, salvation army or any organization accepting toys, helping out at a shelter, inviting a lonely person to dinner.  Remember we are blessed to be a blessing.  Matthew 7:16 “You will know them by their fruits.”  To all our followers and viewers we appreciate you, and our hope is that you continue to grow in faith.  Be encouraged, cherish the good times, learn from the difficult times.  God is with you.  From my husband and I to all of your families.  We love you, have a happy holiday season!

 

 

 

 

Managing Life’s Transitions

Change! It’s the one constant in life.  The way we manage change can make all the difference.  Change can be positive or negative.  Expected and unexpected.  Some positive changes are getting married, going away to college, a promotion at work, retirement.  Difficult changes include loss of a person, loss of a job, illness, etc…  Positive or negative, change will come!  It must come!  They’re called transitions.  It is the essence of life.  So how do we manage change in times of difficulty?

  • Become comfortable with change, transitions give us an opportunity to assess the direction our lives are taking.
  • Expect to feel uncomfortable during transition.  As you let go of old ways of doing things and begin to accept your new normal, it’s disorientating at first but these feelings will pass and as believers we don’t live by our feelings, we live by faith.
  • Take good care of yourself. Get plenty of rest exercise, and eat well.
  • Build your support system.  Friends and  family can be a great source emotional support, they love you and genuinely want to help.
  • Take it to God in prayer.  The bible says to, Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord your God and lean not to your own understanding.”
  • Take it one day at a time. To regain a sense of power take it one step at a time, that’s all the Lord expects of you.

 

Verse of the day:

Acknowledgement:  Keep in prayer Eric and his daughter who’ve just lost a loving Wife and Mother.  May God bless and Keep them.

A Season Of Abundance and Fall Date Night Ideas

The official start of fall begins Monday September 23.  My favorite time of year!  Followed by my other favorite, Winter!  I actually love the entire season, the holidays are a wonderful time of year.  A new season to do it differently.  What will you do differently?  Change!  And Change for the better!  Thank God for change!  Change is spiritual, it’s a revival of the spirit.  Though the thunder rolls, and the lightning flashes, God is with you!  When God shines his light on you it’s an awakening.  Awakening is described as “an act of waking from sleep”.  An act or moment of becoming suddenly aware of something.  Coming into existence or awareness.  The Bible calls it Luke 15:17“He came to himself.”  Be encouraged!  Keep the faith and have a great week.  Don’t forget to take the time out to just enjoy life, Surround yourself with positive people, Enjoy fall date nights.

  • The Weather

  • Warming up by the fire

  • The colors of Fall

  • Harvest

Verse of the day:

Celebration and Leisure:  We must take the time out to enjoy life with the ones we love.  Time to Fly!  We had such an amazing time on my husband’s birthday with the kids.  I surprised him with “iFLY” Indoor Skydiving/ flying.  It was hit!  He loved it!  The kids did better than me.

God is Restoring You

God is restoring you!  The Bible says “the thief comes only to steal kill and destroy”.  God has come “that you might have life!!  And that more abundantly”. John 10:10.  The amplified bible calls it a “Rich and satisfying life”!  That sounds good to my soul!  The thief wants to destroy everything that’s good in your life!  Especially your mind!  Because that’s where your power is!  It is with the mind that we serve the lord!  There’s nothing as powerful as a changed mind.  If you can change your mind, you can make better choices, you can change your habits, change your behaviors, change your money, change your family, change your life!

Guard your mind!  Stay focused!  Keep your eyes on God.  When you make the decision to change your life God will meet you there in that place, take you by the hand, give you an experience in Him and do things for you you’ve only dreamed about.  I know because it happened to me!  God is in the restoration Business!  Joel 2:25, “I will restore to you the years”.  Are there some years you want restored?

God is restoring your years.  He is restoring your mind, your health, your relationships, your resources (money), restoring your hope, restoring your faith, and love!  Shame is from the enemy.  You need not be ashamed of what you were, your former self.  The bible says you are a new creature in Christ the former things have passed away and behold all things have become new.

Isaiah 61:7 Instead of your shame “you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours”. Joel 2:26 “And ye shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord your God who has dealt wondrously with you and my people shall never be ashamed.”

Be encouraged today people of God, God loves you.  My family prays for our readers, pray for us, The best is yet to come!  Be at peace!

What does the bible say about Restoration?
  • Jeremiah 30:17  For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will …
  • Psalm 51:12  Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a …
  • Isaiah 61:7 Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead …
