THE SOUND OF IT, BUT CANNOT TELL WHERE IT COMES
FROM AND WHERE IT GOES. SO IS EVERYONE WHO IS
BORN OF THE SPIRIT.”
( JOHN 3:8 *NJKV )
What Jesus was referring to here is the Holy Spirit. It often
works in mysterious ways that we can’t predict, or at times even
understand. Just like the wind, we cannot control it either.When you think about it, we could not control our physical
birth, nor could we control our Spiritual Birth! For through our
accepting Jesus as our Savoir we become born again, this time
of the Spirit! That is a promise from Jesus Christ!
“I REMEMBER THE
WORD OF THE LORD, AND HOW HE SAID, JOHN INDEED
BAPTIZED WITH WATER BUT YOU SHALL BE BAPTIZED
WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT!” ( ACTS 11:16 )
Jesus also stated “THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE FLESH
IS FLESH, AND THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS
SPIRIT.” ( JOHN 3:6 ) “I SAY THEN: WALK IN THE SPIRIT,
AND YOU SHALL NOT FULFILL THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH.”
( GALATIANS 5:16 )
Now our Spiritual Birth is one of the greatest gifts of them all!
For it comes with the fruit of the Spirit, and “THE FRUIT OF THE
SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, KINDNESS,
GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, AND SELF
CONTROL.” ( GALATIANS 5:22 ) The more we love
our Heavenly Father, the more of these gifts He to gives us!Therefore Betty have a wonderful day, and know that my
prayer for you is that you are walking in the Spirit, and your life
is now overflowing with these spiritual gifts!.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen

I have been talking about contentment, “Content” is defined satisfied with what one is or has. This is a feeling that is propagated by an attitude. Contentment doesn’t mean you are happy, it is a word that holds you together, it is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:6-8 “But Godliness with contentment is great gain.. We brought nothing into the world and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, we are content. The world is out for gain, cars,houses,fame,ect. Why strive so hard for material things that mean nothing in the end. Luke 12:15-“And he said to them, take care and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions. “Are you content today?
see: Isaiah 26:3
2 Corinthians 12:10

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ. I am having a hard time financially I needed to get my bottom teeth pulled because they were giving me trouble and the dentist has an outrageous prices so I got a $900 care credit card to pay them $100 a month to get these teeth pulled. I got them pulled out but I cannot eat much without my teeth I have a top denture but it needs to be aligned with the bottom dentures that they have not made yet and he is wanting to charge me $1, 62.00 dollars to get my bottom plate and $328 to realign my top plate I wanted you to pray about this and I need $530 down just to get him started I don’t know what to do I am still paying on Care Credit for the teeth that they pulled and that is $100 a month. This is a lot but I sure am getting hungry and I can’t eat that much so I am asking for prayer that God will go before me and help this situation to get done and for me to get all my teeth God bless you all love Betty Bolden.
The way you move when I pray,
It just takes my breath away.
Little prayers sent up to your throne,
no more for them to roam,
brings relief when whispered in my ear,
It takes my breath away.
Your arms around me is all I need,
I realize when I see, that your embrace
just takes my breath away.
Nobody can show their love the way you do,
It just takes my breath away.
When I think your far and I wait to hear Your voice,
You reply in such away,
that it takes my breath away.
So long I wait, but when I’m still,
You come and take my breath away.
Your Majesty stay,
please take my breath away.

I wake to the crisp winter air
I feel the wind so cool in the night
My soul seems to want to take flight
I hear the lonely winds so cool in the clouds
the birds chirp a song to waken the others
two hungry shadows leark in the breeze
So dark this morning in time
waiting for the sun to rise
I hear scampering around the tree’s
Hoping to hear your voice
hoping to see your hand in my day
seeing the shadows keeps me longing for your embrace
The sun rises and the leaves seem crisp
ready for snow this morning
the clouds are grey and the wind seems to have
I close my eyes and see the sun
the sun shines deep in my soul
waiting for my master to take control.
