Worship Week | Holy Week

"The Last Supper"
Today's Reading: Luke 22:7-23, Matt 26:17-19
7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. 8Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover." 9"Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked. 10 He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, 11 and say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?' 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there." 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God." 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes." 19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." 20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. 22The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him." 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.

Matt 26:17-19
On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?" 18 He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.' " 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.

Activity: Make a loaf of bread and have communion, or do your own sedar.

Worship Week | Holy week

"Judas Plots to Kill Jesus"
Today's Reading: Luke 22:1-6
1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, 2 and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. 4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.

Whoever betrays Christ, or his truths or ways, it is Satan that puts them upon it. 

Activity: Make a forgiving box or jar..write out your sins or things holding onto a piece of paper fold it up and put it in there. ask for God's forgiveness at the end of the week put it thru a shredder. And kknow that God has forgiven you of all your sins, as far as the east is from the west.

Worship Week | Holy Week

Reading: John 12:1-7
1 Six days before the Passover, Jesus arrived at Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 Here a dinner was given in Jesus' honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. 4 But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, 5 "Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages. " 6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. 7"Leave her alone," Jesus replied. "[It was intended] that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial.

Activity: Light a fragrant candle, make an Easter Tree with crosses

We started the week out with Palm Jesus is cleansing the temple...

Reading for today: Mark 11:15-17

15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’[c]? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’[d]

How is your their some cleaning that needs to done.Are there things in your life that are ripping you off from your desire to draw closer to God? I know I have some cleaning to do. Don't we all?

Activity: Make Pretzels or bread and take to someone God lays on your heart.

Worship Week - Holy week | Palm Sunday

As we begin Holy Week I thought this was an awesome worship song for that.

Matthew 21:6-9 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna[b] to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[c]
“Hosanna[d] in the highest heaven!”

Activity: Make Palm Branches or find some outside and put them on your fireplace mantle or somewhere visible.

Fit Friday

Hi!! So I am going to start Fit Friday again. I used to do this on my CrafTEA Mom blog. I am doing a few challenges to get me motivated and accountable and wanted to share them with you.

Finding time to workout, let alone find time, is one of the main reasons why I love HIIT workouts.  You can do in less than 10 mins, 3-4 days a week. I have been doing HIIT workouts for the past couple of years and it worked for me....up until I got pregnant. HIIT workouts can last from 5 min - 45 mins. The best thing about the workouts is that you can do it all in the comfort of your own home and the best thing is they are free.

You can google it, youtube it, or go pinterest and just search HIIT workouts. I have found a few that I will be doing  this week and has worked for me. They are less than 10 minutes and man do you get a workout. HIIT workouts burn fat calories 9x more than regular cardio workouts and it's in more than half the time.

This is why I love HIIT workouts so much. Don't spend soo much money, as I did, or get bored, with those gimmicky workout videos that you spend $100's on. I bought it used the program and finished and now it just sits there. I love using different Hiit workouts, it changes up thing, you don't get bored with it. You just need a formula to go by. Like something like this. And I will be posting every Friday, they are already scheduled, different workout schedules and plans for it. Will you join me in this journey to get my body back into shape.

Here's what my week will look like next week, subject to change.

Mon - 10 min HIIT workout
Tues - Rest
Wed - 15 min HIIT workout
Thurs - Rest
Fri - 10 min HIIT workout
Sat Rest
Sun Rest

Here are some videos:
10 min HIIT workout

This one below, I am will be starting next Monday and will be doing every morning until Friday. 

Start out simple....don't over exert yourself. These are great workouts to get you started. If you would like to join me every morning in this challenge leave me a comment below and let me know how you are doing.

Worship Wednesday

Yes...this is a day late, better late than never right? I so love this song....No matter how bad your day is this song is so refreshing. I am doing Good Morning Girls bible study with a group of sweet sisters {shout out to my girls..woot, woot}, and this week we have been reading up on His crucifixion and all that he has done for us.

You know if we contemplate all that He has done for would make us less likely to sin. I don't get that all that He has done for us we can still be so cruel. Why when we are cruel or have bad intentions can't those visions of his crucifixion come to our mind. I think we would be less likely to go down that wrong path. But even still, people will still do things....intentionally.

Lord forgive those who know not, or who do know and yet still do it to satisfy no one else but their flesh. Forgive us Lord.

Enjoy this refreshing and now that Jesus loves you no matter what!

"He is Risen" Celebration

Over the years I have posted several posts in regards to Easter. I refer back to them often to see what I've done. This year I will be referring back to them, as my mind is preoccupied and I've lost my memory. This helps me remember. It has been a crazy beginning of April and March, to say the least.

You can go check out these posts to see what we have done in the past.

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
