30 WAYS TO GET ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN GOD

How important is it to be grounded in the Word of God?  Christians without the grounding of the Word of the God are completely lost; they have no direction and no knowledge of the gift of salvation.  If we don’t know the absolute truth, then how will we know the lie?  Without the truth we have no direction.  Truth be told without being grounded in the Word of God, we are on a road to destruction so here are a few ways you can follow to get grounded and rooted in God.

1. Spend some time learning God’s values, applying them in His way and you will find peace beyond all understanding that the bible talks about in John14:27 and Phil4:7.
2. Read the bible, or listen on Audio CD’s, watch and listen on DVD’s.
3. Find a bible believing church, worship and get connected.
4. Join a small group of men who are Christ followers and process life together.
5. Listen to Christian music, and men of God delivering powerful messages on the radio.
6. Allow a man of faith, good character and integrity, to mentor you, to become your   accountability partner.
7. Get involved in a weekly or daily devotional. 
8. Learn the importance of prayer, and practice it.
9. Become like our Master, Jesus, follow him and copy his life.
10. Be filled with the fullness of God and comprehend the love of Christ.
11. Change from the old sinful man to the new life; abandon the old sins and habits.
12. Keep your commitment to the church, to your family and your work.
13. Learn the facts and truth of the scriptures.
14. Obey what doesn’t always make sense. Don’t live by sight, live by faith. (Colossians 2:7) 
15. Love your bible, read it and study it; learn it inside and out.
16. Be grounded in love; be a Christian with substance.
17. See your way through the storm by trusting God to get you through it.
18. Plant yourself in God’s words.
19. Learn God’s principles as given to us in the Living Word of God, the bible and apply them in your life. (James1:22).  
20. Develop and know the real love that out lasts your feelings and the performance of the other person.
21. Stop holding on forgiveness – forgive people who have hurt you on the same amount that God has forgiven you and you will be left with everlasting love.
22. Substitute lust and possessions for the truth.
23. Take God at His word, even when you don’t feel like it. You should put God’s Word over your feelings.
24. Strengthen your mind with the truth of God’s word and you will be able to stand any challenge.
25. Keep your roots in God’s hands so that you may be able to grow like a tree.
26. When you find yourself worrying and in fear, find your position in back at the feet of Christ.
27. Learn new ways to operate in life, how to operate from the position of God’s child.
28. Live in His Truth that His lover covers all, it is the foundation and the only source of our life.
29. Develop a lifestyle that is settled in God’s love and not on any other rule or power or philosophy.
30. Practice Matt28:19-20; “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the end of the age

MY BFF

See I felt such strong and change that my blog post was going to be an outfit of the day post to day. However I decided to do a special blog post dedicated to my only female best friend as well as kill two birds with one stone and do my homework assignment for my armor bearers class. 

Anywho, the last female best friend I had was when I was like 5, the only reason why were are not friends any more is because I moved around so many times growing up that I lost contact with her. With that said I literally have not had a female best friend since then. Reason for me not having a female best friend is because I have found it so ridiculously hard to have female friends that I can legitimately trust with out feeling like they are going to do something shady to me behind my back, use me, try to take my boyfriends, or they just don’t understand me at all. 
With all of this said someone who has taken my heart and ran with it , has loved me back to life in times that I needed real love, times when I wanted to kill myself, times when I was not sure if this was the right decision that I wanted to make. She’s been through 2 major break ups with me has helped me get back into amazing status. With her I have found my new found love of God. A love that has me feeling like someone that is alive which is a feeling that I have not felt in years. A feeling that I do not want to disappear at all. Do not get me wrong I have some friends that I consider to be like family to me, but she got the title of BFF.
This best friend is Lillian Lightbourn, she says she is inspired by me but I am inspired by her and her love of God. I love her drive and admire her God driven career in modeling. She is beautiful and kind and because of her I love coffee and creamer. lol. I miss her so much as she is away in London doing her thing modeling and I give her everything and commend her for everything that she has done and is about to do. So I love you lilli and I hope this answers my homework question in more than just a paragraph!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

You know sometimes we give our love to the wrong people. Love is something special and the greatest love was given to us from Jesus. However, he is usually the first to be forgotten. We are so quick to give our love and affection to the people of the world that we lose sight of the real person who needs our love. Jesus just wants our love that’s it. It is no hard but society makes it hard and it should not be this way. 
With today being Valentine’s Day I thought I would do a special post for Jesus and write him a letter, not just any letter but a deep and devotional letter filled with prophecies in it that will be filled. It is already as they said besides it is the year of the harvest and nothing comes close to giving my Jesus love than writing him a letter this year. I am single and the only boyfriend, best friend , husband I need is my Jesus. 
Dear Jesus,
Let me just start off by saying I don’t praise you enough the way that I should, I don’t read my bible as much as I should, I don’t ask for what I want as much as I do. But yet even though I don’t ask for the smallest things you still manage to give it all to me. You still give me grace knowing that I am not perfect and I still make mistakes. This is a new process for me surrendering to you myself and all of my flaws to be worked in and out Its not easy to work with me because sometimes I feel like I am stuck in my old ways but I know you got me.
I just want to be taken cleaned up and made brand new.  I want to thank you for everything you have done and everything you are doing in my life and thank you for you taking me out of situations that I didn’t deserve or ask to be in. You give us grace even when we don’t deserve it. I need to ask for more things that I want so that you can help me work on these things,

A free gym membership would be nice lol 
Time management I need help with that 
Guide me in the right direction 
My blog
My career my success is all in you 
My patience needs some work but you know this
A vocal and acting coach 
More people on my team to help me expand my business! 
Organization skills
Camera 
Jesus, when you are with me nothing seems difficult; but when I forget you everything is a mess and I can not forgive myself. 
your voice to me is the most precious sound in existence. I need your voice to speak to me with comfort to get me through my day. 
 “The Master is come, and he calls for you” (John 11:28). 
I would be a fool to not put you first in all that I do. I can not go into any situation without having you on my mind Jesus. I can not want anything else if it is not for you Jesus. The world without you is just that a world lost and needs to be found again. To be without you is hell on earth; being with you Jesus is like sweet Candy land. As long as you are with me no enemy can hurt me. 
Finding you the only treasure that I want to find. The best thing in life is you. I know that I am blessed to have blessings, I do not want to know poverty. 
I want to know how to have a conversation with you like no other speak to me how you want to speak to me. I want your mind and want to live life so gracefully. Give me peace and the ability to please you.  
Lord, heal my heart so that I can have you with me at all times.  
God you made us to be your friend in you, that is why we exist but we have a purpose beyond that. It is to fulfill your vision and your work. I don’t want to drive you away and lose your. What would I do if this happens! You were my friend when no one else was.  I can deal with having the whole world against me than to lose you. I trust you and what you are doing in my life because I know it is something amazing. 
I love you Jesus! Because I have love for you, I can therefore love others around me. You are as faithful to me as I am to you and have never left me even in my worst times. you are God and there is no one like you! Jesus , my prayer  is that you would be in me and in every person who calls on you.
I just ask for everything abundantly and for your grace!
Happy Valentine’s Day 

Love,
your daughter
