Jesus Died & He ROSED AGAIN!

I was very impressed with this production about Jesus Christ Crucifixion, that I wanted to share the video with you!

I don't debate the way our Saviour died, or that he rosed, as some say he rosed on Sunday or Monday, as the bible tells us it was the 1st day of the week. I will leave the debate up to the Biblical Scholars.

However one thing I do know, that Jesus DIED to save a SINNER, like me! And Jesus promise a place for me to live in Eternity!

So now I LIVE to spread the Gospel to you, that the same Jesus that DIED for me, also died for YOU!

Be Blessed!

Prayer Is Needed

Greetings to Everyone,

How many of you have lost your jobs, home in foreclosure, in the wake of this economic crises, or feel some what distress? It not easy going it alone, so let's get on one accord post your prayer request today! Let others know so we could pray for your needs.

I personally want you to pray for our family. I lost my job on yesterday 3/20/09, but I know my God is able! Yes, I'm human, I wasn't mad, but just a bit sadden that it happened! However, I was lifted spiritually, on yesterday evening, my husband came in with food from his job, and after doing an interview this afternoon at Empowered Christian Women Talk Show , my guest Sherri Keys, song a beautiful song on the show that started my tears to flowing. I wasn't trying to plug the show, but I just wanted to let you where one or two are gathered in my Jesus name, God will show up to comfort your soul.

As I was typing a scripture fell into my spirit for you, some of you may feel so overwhelmed in this economy:

"I have been young and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread". Psalms 37:25 (So, don't fret... just remember what David stated

And here another scripture that really snapped me back to "Trust in GOD"!

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee"! Hebrew 13:5

Wow! This encourage me, and I hope that it encourage YOU! If you don't have a prayer request, just leave a comment on my guestbook!
Be Blessed!

O Clap Your Hands

How often have you clapped your hands? Have you ever listen to the thunderous volume your hands can make? Do you believe that your hands are an instrument for GOD? I certainly do! I want you to just stop right now, and start clapping! Did you hear the powerful sound from your hands?

God has equipped you with your own personal instrument to praise him. I have even notice toddlers in church services so fascinated when they start clapping their hand; they get so excited! It is almost as if their trying to figure out where the sound is coming from.
At the next church service start listening to the thunderous applause, when the congregation is applauding. I am always amazed at what our GOD has given us to worship and magnify his name with.

I was so touch with two scriptures that reads:

"O Clap your hands, all ye people, shout unto God with the voice of Triumph"! Psalm 47:1 KJV ( We are to clap our hands people! So CLAP!)

"Let the floods clap their hands: Let the Hills be joyful together". Psalm 98:8 KJV (Just imagine when sailors are out on the sea, and waves start clashing the sound could be deafening, but the waves are clapping!)

Our God has gifted your hands for a reason, and that is to clap them and praise him! Could you imagine how God is feeling, when the people he created is using the instrument to edify him!

So the next time when you are in the House of Prayer, make sure you are clapping your hands, and then "SHOUT unto GOD with The Voice of Truimph!

Be Blessed!

Sanerica Gipson is a dedicated christian woman who's main goal in life is too see the lost come to Christ and live. Her life is one of service to the call that the Lord has placed upon her. She has a loving heart filled with compassion for the the broken hearted. Words alone aren't enough to give a complete expression of her deepest love for our Father God. She was given a vision by the Father to compel christian women for service and to outreach to the hurting & the community, in a generation that has lost the utmost respect for people as a whole. As Jesus said in John 15:13 (KJV) "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". This ministry is built on the very foundation of God's Word. No one is an enemy. Only the devil, eveyone is welcomed, no matter what denomination or color. She is also a member of Word of Life Center in Shreveport, La., and has a certificate in Biblical Studies. She is currently pursuing her degree in Christian Counseling.

Love Is In The Air!

Today is a day that couples are showing their love for one another, on this day called Valentine. On my way home this afternoon, I glanced over into a vehicle on the highway; there was a gentleman struggling to drive, and hold a beautiful array of roses for someone. I thought someone was going to showered with some beautiful flowers today! So don't let this day go by without showing some love to the one you love!
And remember JESUS loves YOU! Why? Because the bible tells us so! (I bet you remember singing this song in children's Sunday School class)....But it is true Jesus loves YOU!
Be Blessed!

Tribute To Andrew Thomas

I have witnessed in my lifetime some memorable tragedies. I remember quite vividly the April 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City. I was on my job as a Claims Adjuster at the time, when the building shook; only to find out that the Murrah Alfred Building was blown up. Then that awful fate of September 11, 2001, I was at work witnessing this event on television. I sure thought our world was over! Then in December 2004 the Tsunmai, and the New Orlean Hurricane "Katrina"...

However, the most memorable tragedy occurred March 2005, was when I received a call from my sister, screaming in horror that our 13th year old nephew is dead. I could not do nothing but cry out to God! All that I could remember saying is "OH God", OH God"! I have not being able to talk about that year until now. Our family is approaching the month of March of his passing, and the last memory I had of my nephew was when him and my sister-in-law were leaving to go home. I was just preparing to return home for Dallas Texas (I had just recently moved to Texas). All the kids were on spring break, my son and I decided to spend some time in Oklahoma City, not knowing that would be the last time I see my nephew. My last words to him were "you better put on a coat, it was still a chill in the air! I don't want to see you catch a cold".

You may have notice in my profile, that I mentioned the year of 2005, this is when I birthed Empowered Christian Women. After attending the funeral of my nephew and listening to all the activities, and plays he was involved in school. It made me realize his talent stopped the moment life left his precious body. And here I was burying my gifts that God had placed inside of me! But my nephews death was my turning point to help others. I could not figure out how, or what I need to do to help others. So I started blogging, and over time I healed, and our my family healed! Death comes so quickly and it is painful, but there is good that comes from so much hurt and pain. It allows us to share stories that would strengthen an individual, it allows individuals to revaluate their life. And for some to view the world in a different lens.

So I dedicate this passage to him, even though he has passed on! My nephews memory still live on in my heart.

RIP Andrew Thomas, and all the many people that have lost their lives though some tragic fate!

I had spoke with his father Joshua Thomas (my brother) briefly on how he dealth with the death of his son, click the link to listen Empowered Christian Women.

I pray today for thoses that have recently lost a love one! Strengthen them through their time of grief. In your precious name Jesus Christ! AMEN!

God Will Make Room For Your Gifts

Guess Who? Lady Evelyn J & Dottie Peoples! God said he will make room for your gifts, and place you around people in high places. I never would have imagine meeting this wonderful woman of God! I just know if you keep serving the true and living God, ALL things are possible!

I was a shy person in the past, and probably would never have ask to be photograph with such a great Gospel Singing Personality as "Dottie People", But God changes a person on the inside, and give them boldness.

I was so delighted to have had the opportunity to take this picture, when she visited the church where I was attending. I must say I have watched this woman of God in the Gospel circuit, she has always impressed me with her classy style of dressing, with the flawless hair and makeup!

My hats off to Dottie Peoples, for her heart felt ministry. And for her keeping it stylish!

Remember as Dottie Peoples sings "He's An On Time God

In Search of A Church Home

Are you in search of a church? Let me tell you, my husband's job transfer created a new environment for our family to get familiar with a new city, community, and new christian fellowship. And in our search, I was overwhelmed by how many churches were established, not only here in the current city our family moved too! But even in the previous city our family moved from.

Our family like to interact in a church family of structure, order and unity. So much prayer went into our journey to search for a church. I don't choose to look for a perfect church, but a church that worship the "Lord in Spirit and in Truth". Again, as I stated there are many, many churches, but you must try the spirit of the finding a church by the spirit. Remember always pray, and God will give you an answer to locating a church for yourself or your family.

The transitioning of locating to a new church can be some what of a challenge. But don't get in a hurry to settle for the first church you come across. Keep your prospects open, and visit many churches, until God give you a confirmation that you have found the right place where he wants you to be.
Our family have found a church, and we visited many churches, but kept being drawn back to the one we currently visit now. And each Sunday morning has brought more love, joy and happiness (something the minister spoke about today).

So on your quest for finding a church, we now ask God to direct you to the right place of worship. In his precious name Jesus Christ! Amen!

Times of Distress

I arose to a beautiful bright morning, the sun was shining and snow was every where. Though the night God blessed our city with snow and ice! However someone else did not see this day, or was unable to feel the warmth of the winter sun upon their face.

I was sadly disappointed when I reach over to turn on the television this morning, to hear about the weather, and the school closings. But to my amazement to hear that a family was found dead in their beautiful home. Apparently the couple was laid-off from their jobs recently. No doubt they were worrying about losing their job, home, vehicles, unemployment, paying their bills, making ends meet, and feeding their family. I will never know what the real reason was, for them taking their lives! But it was not worth the pain that they will put their families, friends, and the world though. My heart went out to the children, there were so many precious lives taken, and they did not have a choice in the matter. And it pains me to hear of such a tragic ending.

We are facing economic crises, job losses, and our government are trying to find solutions to ease the conscience mind of the nation. But the bible speak of times like this! So don't faint my brother or sister, and just put your trust in God! If you are feeling distress seek out God's word for comfort and release! And remember "This Too Shall Pass".

I had such an awesome conversation with a christian sister this evening! She had called to check up on my process since beginning Empowered Christian Women. After speaking with her I started thinking, how truly blessed that I am; to still be ministering via the internet.

I pray what you find here Encourage, Inspire, and Motivate you in 2009! Don't let what God has given you go to waste. God has planted a gift inside of everyone, that he might be glorified!

I want to THANK You, for just taking the time out to view this site, or the many other sites God has truly blessed me with!

And my prayer is for Peace in the Middle East, and our newly elected President Barack Obama, 1st Lady Michelle, and their two daughters. I pray for food in places where there is none! I pray for nations that have an opportunity to know Jesus Christ! I pray that your burdens are lifted while this nations goes though this economic crises.

But always remember that YOU are TRULY BLESSED!
