A New Year! A Fresh Beginning!

DSC02057horizontal

Another year has come and gone! God’s Mercy is new every morning and it’s also new with each New year! I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions ~ I believe in beginning each new year with God’s Mercy and Fresh Beginnings!

I believe that 2017 is going to be a year of fresh beginnings for all that are willing to put God first and top priority in their lives; willing to slow down in their ‘busy’ lives and take notice of those around them ~ family, friends, strangers; willing to show love and appreciation to/for others; willing to forgive and willing to ‘walk in others shoes rather than to  judge them’!

I know that since I have learned to start my day with “Good Morning, Jesus! What are we going to do today to be a blessing?” I am happier, healthier, have more peace and joy than I have ever had! No, I am not perfect and I have a long way to go, but the most important thing is that with each day, I walk closer with my Lord, I hear His voice clearer and I see blessings and miracles all around me!

With God ALL things are possible, He NEVER leaves me nor forsakes me, and by putting ALL of my TRUST in Him I live with HOPE (Earnest Expectation) and KNOWING  that NO WEAPON formed against me can prosper; that ALL  of my needs are met and that God’s Plans for me are ABOVE AND BEYOND anything I could ever imagine!

It’s wonderful and I love to see my Daddy work in my life; the lives of our children, friends, loved ones; prayers answered daily and blessings and miracles large and small happening all around! I am looking forward to seeing what all God has in store for all of us this year!

I love you all and Be Blessed to Be a Blessing,

Our God is an Awesome God!

Our God is so Awesome! These are exciting times for Christians, Believers and all of God’s Children. We just saw God’s Divine Intervention in our election for a new President of our country! And yes, it was God’s Intervention, but only because for the first time in a long time His children united and prayed, trusted and believed! Hallelujah!

There is nothing that God can’t do, but He needs us to do our part. What is our part? It is praying earnestly, not doubting the outcome of our prayers, but trusting God and knowing that whatever the answer is, He has His plan and that we will be okay! That’s what happened with this election…and everyone was shocked! The other party! The media! Probably the entire world! But we weren’t!

You see, when you trust God you aren’t praying, “Well if it’s Your will, O Lord.” No, you are putting your will in to join with His will! He can’t go against your will and that is what stops a lot of answers to prayers! That and doubt!!!  Some of us may not have really seen Trump as Presidential material, but God did! He called him to run for this office and He has anointed him to fill it!

Now what we all have to do is continually pray for God’s guidance by the Holy Spirit to lead President Trump in his decisions, words and actions. To continually pray protection for him and his family and staff because he has really made satan mad! I have been praying for the last 8 years for things hidden to be revealed when it comes to our government and the elected officials that were being manipulated and controlled by satan. And PRAISE GOD they have been!

satan (and no I DON’T capitalize that name) is furious because God’s Children have awakened and taken their place and their stand! He is nothing but a wimp and has no power unless we give it to him! Well, his ‘power’ has been taken away from him and he knows that this is only the beginning!

Don’t let anything that satan is doing now or will try to do in days to come, take your eyes off Jesus! Continue to Stand, Pray, Thank God for what He has done and is doing, Praise Him and Rejoice! Together we are united with our Daddy and are Victorious! HALLELUJAH!


God is So Good ~ All The Time!

VP_20160716_Southlaketexas_3611

I am so in love with my Daddy! Every morning is a new day filled with new blessings, prayers being answered, promises being fulfilled and new challenges, opportunities and successes!

The ‘worldly’ happenings going on these days are the words in the Bible being fulfilled.  (Read the back of the Book!)  When I was younger and before I was Born Again, those words frightened me. Then I became Born Again, Spirit Filled and got to know and develop a close, personal relationship with Jesus, God my Father/Daddy and the Holy Spirit! Now I’m not frightened ~ I’m excited!

I have never felt so loved, so free, so happy, content, blessed and fulfilled in my life! I don’t carry the ‘cares’ of this world. I don’t worry about temporal things. I KNOW that my Daddy is with me, Jesus is my constant companion and The Holy Spirit is guiding my every step! And I KNOW where I am spending eternity!!!

If you don’t feel like this, you can! It’s so simple! Get in a good strong, Spirit Filled Church,  that teaches you the truth from the Word of God! Fellowship with Believers! Read the Bible and ask God to give you clear understanding. Spend time just fellowshipping and loving on Jesus! And spend time listening to what He is saying to you through the Holy Spirit! And most important of all ~ make Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior of your life! 💘

Have a wonderfully blessed day and if you need any help getting there, feel free to contact me!

Stop and Smell the Roses!

Each year seems to race by a little quicker than the last! Everyone is always in such a hurry to get somewhere or to do things! No one, it seems, takes the time to ‘stop and smell the roses’ any more!

Stop and Smell the Roses is a saying that has been around a long time but it still has importance! With all the electronics: computers, laptops, tablets, cell phones, etc., people don’t even take time for each other, much less to stop and smell the roses! How many of us even use the phone to talk  to each other any more. There is more texting than talking. Then there are the social networks such as Facebook where everyone posts where they are, where they are going, what they are doing and with whom! And the saddest part of all is not only do we not have time for each other, but too many times we don’t have time for God!

Every day we wake up, is a gift from God, our Father! Each day has 24 hours in it. That is 24 hours with opportunity to be a blessing, to receive blessings and to fellowship with The One who created us in His own image! God has His Plan for each of us and it is up to us to talk to Him; listen to Him; fellowship with Him and follow the paths and guidance of the Holy Spirit. I talk to my Daddy all day long as I go about doing my daily duties. I ask the Holy Spirit to guide and lead me along the right paths daily and most of all I LISTEN! I have learned not to jump into something, but to pray about it first and see what my Daddy says!

So, no matter how busy your life is, please take time to Stop  and Smell the Roses each day and make the time to fellowship with your Daddy!

My favorite place to go where I hear and feel the presence of my Daddy everywhere is Clark Gardens. It is not only beautiful but so tranquil. It is my ‘God’s Little Bit of Heaven in Texas’! Here are a few pieces of it:

OH, HOW I LOVE MY DADDY!

JVP_20120710_clcc9369

 

I am definitely my Daddy’s girl! I am so in love with The Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit that I want to shout it from the rooftops! No, I am not ashamed! I am not intimidated! I am happy! I am overflowing in Joy, Peace, Love, Blessings, and Knowing Who I am!

Knowing who I am? Yes!!! I am a Child of God, created in His Image, filled with the Holy Spirit, born again (recreated) – made and filled with the Righteousness of God! He lives in me and The Holy Spirit guides my every step and action and when I stumble He is there to pick me up, dust me off and forward we go ~ Together!

He has blessed me so much with His wonderful gift of Love to share with everyone, everywhere I go! One gift He gave me was photography, to share the glorious beauty around me in all forms! I am a very blessed Woman of God and I love my Daddy!

Thru My Daddy’s Eyes & Heart!

JVP_20150623_ClarkGardens_9826

 

I have changed the name of my Blog from ‘Thru My Daddy’s Eyes’ to Thru My Daddy’s Eyes & Heart’. Every since He presented my with my Gift, my Passion and my Love of Photography, I have been asking Him to let me see the world, the beauty, everything around me through His eyes. 

It started out with praying to let me see the beauty around me through His eyes and that was wonderful! I’ve always loved any and everything to do with nature, trees, flowers, grass, ponds, lakes sky, clouds, etc! Soon I noticed that I was even seeing colors in all nature differently ~ more vivid, more alive!

Then one day when I was talking to my Daddy, I heard, ‘you need to see everything around you through My eyes.’ Well, this was different, I started seeing not only nature, but also people through His eyes and not just the beauty, but things that I knew hurt His heart. These are the things that I knew I needed to pray about!

Now, the reason for the change…I was reading (absorbing) a book that I hadn’t read in a while! A book that had a profound effect on me spiritually the first time I read it and this time a new stronger, deeper more profound effect! It was like when you read a scripture hundreds of times and then there is the time you read it again and…it has a new revelation for you! Wow! This is what happened to me. In this book, He said that His people may see things through His eyes, but He wants us to see things through His heart! Because when we see things through His heart we are seeing through His LOVE! This is what I want so…the change…Thru My Daddy’s Eyes & Heart!

 

 


Life is Beautiful!

Life is so beautiful! Even on a cold, cloudy day, it is beautiful. Some people call a day like today ‘dreary’ but I don’t…I can see the beauty in it all around me. It’s like looking at people! Do you just see the outward appearance or do you look for and see the inner person? So many times we are quick to judge someone or something by the outward appearance, but that is not the true person or object!

Take for instance an old, worn, dusty Bible.  Once you open it and start to read it, you find all the answers to everything in life you can and will possibly face. Does the outward appearance of that Bible change what is truly on the inside of it? Think about it!

The next time you see someone who is ‘different’ from what the world considers beautiful, perfect, etc. step back and take a look at that person through God’s eyes! In His eyes we are all beautifully made and He is constantly molding, shaping and refining us. He created each and everyone of us and He doesn’t make a mistake! After all…it is not our ‘housing/body/looks’ that is the real us, the real ‘us’ is the spirit inside of that housing. He gave each of us our own will and it is up to us what we do with it!

For me…my will is to make God/Jesus, my Father, my Daddy, my Savior, my everything…my top priority in my life and family. To follow His word! To be obedient! To become more like Him everyday and to let His love and light shine through me, my words and my actions! YES! Life is Beautiful when you have Jesus as your constant companion and friend!

My prayer for everyone of you today is that you see the beauty in everything and everyone around you today, Thru My Daddy’s Eyes!

Love and Blessing Always,

~ Judy ~
