Rejoice In The Lord

Andrea Howey

“He celebrates and sings because of you.”
Zephaniah 3:17 

CELEBRATE YOURSELF—GOD DOES!

Some of us think so little of ourselves that we’d rather be in a bad relationship than none at all. Being around people doesn’t guarantee you won’t feel lonely. Actually, being with the wrong people guarantees you’ll end up feeling empty and used. Until you overcome your fear of being alone and wait for God to give you the right relationships, you’ll continue to feel lonely. Sometimes loneliness is more about not liking yourself than about not having people around who like you. Otherwise, why would you spend so much energy avoiding rejection instead of building healthy relationships? Perhaps you think if you don’t get involved you won’t get hurt. Or you’re afraid to open up in case people criticize you for sharing anything personal. Such anxieties just contribute to your sense of isolation. Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said, “What you picture in your mind, your mind will go to work to accomplish. When you change your pictures, you automatically change your performance.” So: (1) You need a true picture of how God sees you. Paul says, “Because of what Christ has done we have become gifts…God…delights in” (Eph 1:11 TLB). Zephaniah writes, “He celebrates and sings because of you, and he will refresh your life with his love.” (2) You need a true picture of yourself. David said, “You…put me together inside my mother’s body, and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvelous!” (Ps 139:13-14 CEV). Having these two pictures clearly in mind stops you from operating with a devalued self-image, and enables you to ask for what you need in a relationship.// Devotional: Word For You 🙂

Be Wise

Image result for hope in christ bible verse

“Those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.”
Pr 11:13 NLT

BE CAREFUL WHOM YOU CONFIDE IN

If you need help with a problem in your personal life, your family, or your career, keep the following things in mind: (1) Bad news is often remembered longer than good news. Long after you have resolved the issue and moved on with your life, the wrong people will continue to focus on it and talk about it. That’s why God’s Word says, “Those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.” (2) Be careful who advises you. “The thoughts of the righteous are right, but the counsels of the wicked are deceitful” (Pr 12:5 NKJV). Be sure you reach for the right person. There are many sources of wisdom in this world, “but the wisdom that is from above is…pure…peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and…hypocrisy” (Jas 3:17 NKJV). Note the words, “the wisdom that is from above.” Confide only in a counselor who walks according to the principles of God’s Word. (3) Make sure the person you trust isn’t confiding in others you wouldn’t trust. They say you can tell a man by the company he keeps. And it’s true! The Bible says, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly” (Ps 1:1 NKJV). (4) “Problem talk” can portray you as a victim instead of an overcomer. Nobody wants to back a loser. When Job lost everything, almost everybody avoided him. It was only after God doubled Job’s blessings that they returned to participate in his life and bring him gifts. It’s always wise to control your mouth, your thoughts, and your focus. Remember, silence can never be misquoted.

Reflection:

  1. Who are your friends?
  2. Who do you confide in when situations arise?
  3. What have you learned about yourself when your’e faced with trials?

Two Hearts (One Beat)

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you all are doing well. So today we are continuing the marriage series. In today’s blog, I will sharing with you another Youtube channel that discusses marital advice and etc. I believe that there’s always something to learn whether you are in a relationship or not. As you watch these videos, please take notes. Share it with your friends and their friends. Until next time, be blessed & encouraged.

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. (Genesis 2:22-24)

A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. (Proverbs 12:4)

Faith Based Channels

Recently, I was watching a youtube video about this woman who rededicated her life to Christ. In her video, she mentioned that it was hard to come across Youtubers whose channels focused on God. I was surprised by her comment so I suggested her a few of them on that specific video. So I decided why not share some with you all too. I understood where the woman was coming from because a lot of youtubers make videos on hair, makeup, lookbooks and etc. I do enjoy watching a variety of things on Youtube but I’m usually listening to worship or tuning in to a Bible talk. On youtube, there is a notification button and it notifies me when someone makes a video. So below will be a few channels, you ladies and gentlemen can check out. I will post more but for now, check these amazing people out. Tell your friends and their friends. Be encouraged. Continue to grow in Lord.

Until next time stay blessed. Watch but don’t forget or substitute reading your Bible. Thank you for stopping by my blog. God bless you 🙂

Iron Sharpens Iron

“It will be good for you, my daughter, to go with his girls…
in someone else’s field you might be harmed.”

Ru 2:22 NIV

VALUE YOUR FRIENDS

One author writes: “If you have godly girlfriends, love and nurture those relationships as though your life depends on them—because it does. Everything is better when you ‘go with His girls’…Life is safer, more authentic, longer lasting, and just plain more fun. God created women to rely on other women. I’m blessed by girlfriends who lift me when I’m low, level me when I’m high, and show me the face of God on a daily basis through compassion, humor, strength, and unconditional love. May you cultivate and enjoy the same.” And not only do women need friends, men do too. One of the first things God said in the Bible was, “It is not good that the man should be alone” (Ge 2:18). Solomon writes, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity” (Pr 17:17 NKJV). Poet William Carlos Williams wrote: “When trouble comes your soul to try, you love the friend who just ‘stands by.’ Perhaps there’s nothing he can do—the thing is strictly up to you. For there are troubles all your own, and paths the soul must tread alone. Times love cannot smooth the road, nor friendship lift the heavy load. But just to know you have a friend who will ‘stand by’ until the end, whose sympathy through all endures, whose warm handclasp is always yours—It helps someway to pull you through, although there’s nothing he can do. And so with fervent heart you cry, God bless the friend who just ‘stands by.’”

Sunday Scripture | Guilt-free friendship focuses on the friendship and ditches the guilt. Guilt-free friendship loves any chance and any slice of time to catch up, it isn’t about criticizing how much or how frequently that happens. Instead, guilt-free friendship is generous and forgiving and creates easy space for reconnecting because it doesn’t have any conditions for how or when or how often that happens. // Lisa-Jo Baker at incourage.me:

Yesterday’s Devotional:

“Pride goes before destruction.”
Pr 16:18 NKJV

BEWARE OF PRIDE!

Think about the things we become proud over: the home we live in, the car we drive, the diploma hanging on our wall, the people we mingle with, and the position we hold. When you’ve worked hard to get to where you are, look out for pride! Paul asks, “Who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?” (1Co 4:7 NKJV). So what should you do? (1) Examine your belief system about who you are, what you have, and what you can do. Jesus said, “Without Me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5 NKJV). Remind yourself: “I’m just the glove; God’s the hand that fills it.” That’ll help you to keep your perspective right! (2) Focus more on others than on yourself. The saying—“When a person is all wrapped up in themselves, they make a pretty small package”—is true. “Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others” (Php 2:4 NKJV). (3) Respect and value everyone you meet regardless of their social status, race, gender, or other distinguishing factors. When you walk in humility, people respect you and receive your input, and they don’t suspect you of having selfish motives. The Bible says: “These things the Lord hates…a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Pr 6:16-19 NKJV). Today, beware of pride.

The Big Event


What is the Big Event? The Big Event is a retreat that takes place in the last weekend in October. It’s a little weekend retreat where college students from different campuses all over NYC, Long Island and New Jersey come to experience Jesus through worship, various activities, and free time. Before coming to Big Event, we are given the opportunity to select the track that we are interested in for our time in the retreat. It took place from October 28-30. Some of the tracks included this retreat were Evangelism, Leadership, Living For Jesus, Mentoring, Scripture and Redeeming Sexuality. If your thinking about going, just sign up.

My Experience:

So it was my first time ever attending Big Event. I attended Basileia back in May and it was beyond a blessing. I didn’t even think twice about attending Big Event. This time around while registering, I looked over the description for each track and I felt a tug in my heart to partake in the Mentoring track. Upon registering, I prayed and asked God to have his way as I went to this retreat.

I went to the retreat with two of my sisters in Christ. We rode there together but we were all in different tracks. The people from my campus were already there. When we arrived, it was really dark outside and chilly. We had to go and check ourselves in before we were given the numbers to our rooms.  After check in, we had a night of worship. I was mind blown by the amount of college student in the auditorium. Students from NYU, Farleigh Dickinson University, Columbia University, Juilliard School, Baruch College, Rutgers University, Montclair State University, Cooper Union and etc. The list can go on.

The track that I selected was Mentorship as I mentioned previously. This track focused on transformational relationships using the examples of Paul and Timothy in 2 Timothy as a model. We explored the ways to help our friends mature in their faith by mentoring them through Scripture, Prayer, Conversation and Bible Study. On the first day in our tracks, we were given a Blue folder. Then, we were instructed to go around the room to find someone whose birthday is close to us. That person was going to be our partner in every activity we had to partake in during our time at the retreat. After, we watched a clip from the Lion King to demonstrate the relationship between Scar and Simba. We also had to go into our folders to get a paper and list anyone in our lives that we could mentor or we knew that haven’t given their lives to Christ. This activity was interesting but at the same time thought provoking. After our time of writing and sharing with our partners, the staff shared their experiences and we listened to praise and worship and after we were dismissed for the night.


This is a picture of a few girls walking to the Prayer Room. Prayer started at 8:00am. It amazed me because everyone woke up and was ready to be in the presence of God whether they were sleepy or tired, we arrived ready to hear the word. After prayer, we went to eat breakfast. Upon eating breakfast, we went to our designated tracks. For my track, we were given 30 minutes of quiet time before meeting up together as a group. In our folders, we assigned scriptures to read and questions for us to answer. So during my quiet time, I went to the lake. There is something about nature that makes my Spirit at peace. Honestly, when I arrived at the lake I was excited to take pictures. I spent a few minutes taking pictures of people by the lake. Here are a few pictures I took. 😊



After taking pictures, I took time to read the Scriptures and the questions assigned. I enjoyed reading the scripture. We were assigned to read the book of 2 Timothy. It was an interesting read. After I walked to my track with a person from my mentorship track. During track time, the staff shared their experiences and showed us different techniques in approaching situations. We also went outside and played a game with our track members and staff leaders. We were given one ball. It had questions all around it. We were supposed to throw to someone from our track and wherever their hands landed, they had to read the question out loud and answer it. Here are a few pictures:


After our gathering,we prayed and  we went to lunch. Here is a picture of when we were heading to for lunch.



After lunch, we were had free time for two hours. There were activities for us to partake in such a rock climbing, zip lining and many more. I didn’t partake in anything. I was too busy being a social butterfly and taking pictures of the scenery/God’s people. I had a photoshoot with people. I wanted to create memories of the time spent at this retreat. Below are some pictures I took during my free time.





During this time, I also got the opportunity to worship with a few students from other colleges. We sang to Sinking Deep by Hillsong and a few other songs. It was beyond a blessing. I feel like crying just thinking about it. Tears of joy. God is so good.


After our free time, we headed to our tracks for the last time for the night. We spent at least 2 hours in our track. We learned more about mentoring even more than the day before. We played a game where we were given 1 minute to vent to our partners about anything. It was so random. This activity was played to illustrate how it feels like when we are frustrated. We had to give our partners advice in regards to their situation. After there were a list of questions on the projector that we had to ask our partners. It was s great activity. I can definitely say that I took something away from this track. After our track, it was time for worship. I can say that this was everyone’s favorite part. We all got excited and just so ready for the sermon and worship time.

Some of the songs played during our time of worship includes:

1. Holy Spirit You Are Welcome Here.

2. Every Praise: Hezekiah Walker

3. Great Are You Lord

After worship, we headed out to our rooms. We took our showers and prepared for the next morning.

Final Day of The Big Event: 10/30/2016



It was so bittersweet walking to my track this morning. Before heading to our tracks, we had to change our bed sheets and take it to the designated place. I headed out to my track only for me to arrive and see no one. I was confused because the schedule said that we were supposed to meet at 8:00. When I got there no one was there. I was sitting to the point where I rose up several times to see if anyone was outside heading to my track but unfortunately no one was heading my direction. So during my time in my track alone, I prayed. When it was 8:45am, one of the staff members arrived. I was asked to place some papers on each chair for my track members. I enjoyed placing the papers on each chair. A few minutes later, my track members arrived. During our last track time, we prayed for one another and the staff members prayed for us. The papers I passed out had a survey and a questionnaire for us to answer. Upon our arrival, we were given granola bars. It was such a precious moment in our track time. One the staff members played a song which still resonates with me. It’s a song by Amanda Cook called Shepherd. If you get the chance, listen to it. I really enjoyed every moment in this retreat especially during my track time. My partner gave me a note and creates note card with Psalm 139 written on it. After our last time at track time, we headed to brunch with all the students that came to this retreat. Here are some pictures.


After brunch, we all went to the prayer room where we gathered for worship and the sermon for Big Event. It was a blessing being able to see people give their lives to Christ. Overall, going to Big Event was a great experience. If your thinking about going, pray about it. Don’t worry about the money. Ask your campus leader. There’s always provision. Won’t God do it? Yes he will.

Pictures I took before we left the retreat. (Final Day of Big Event)

“Therefore, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” -James 5:16


Here is a Bible verse I will leave you with.

Isaiah 43:19: See, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wildnerness and streams in the wasteland.

Many times, it may feel like God has forgotten about us. We tend to look and compare our lives to everyone around us that we don’t even count our blessings. I’m here to tell you that God hasn’t forgotten about you. As this year wraps up, take time to reflect on all the things that God has done for you this year (2016). If it means writing it down, feel free to do so. Pray over the list. Write down a list of all that your still trusting God for. Pray over it. Looking back in this year, I can say that it wasn’t easy but God brought me through. I can say that this is the year I drew closer to God. It has been a blessing. I’m forever grateful for all the experiences, trials and the people I’ve met in this year. Thank you Lord. So with this said, stay rooted in the Lord, read the Bible, pray for others and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.  I’ll be praying for you all. Thank you for everyone that stops by my blog. God bless you all.

The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. -Psalm 126:3
