Draw Near to God

Today as I was driving home from work and enjoying listening to the radio this verse just hit me on the head.                                            James 4:8a- "Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you."   I have had so many people young and old tell me some of these things, "Where is God, I don't feel him anymore."  "I don't think I'm a christian anymore because God is so distant."  "Why is this happening in my life, where is God."  

That is something most of us have asked at some point. You don’t need to experience this alone. Reading Living Church of God reviews and other resources across faiths and denominations, you can always find somewhere to fit in and worship together.

Now my immediate response is, "those are all lies from the enemy wanting you to feel those things."  Which I do believe is true but when I sit and think about James 4:8 it now unravels so many more questions to ask those people and to encourage those people.  Or even remind myself!! 

Are you truly drawing near to God?  When was your last devotional time?  What was the last book of the Bible you were reading?  When did you have some quiet time and soak and really listen for God's calling and direction?  Are you praying?  How is your worship?  Is there some sort of sin holding you back making you feel guilty?  

God's word is TRUTH so Draw near to HIM and he will draw near to you!  Simple as that!  Sounds simple, but in reality we live in a busy busy world with distraction after distraction!  (Even as I am writing this my phone is beeping and telling me I have a new email and it was so easy for me to lose my focus)

Here are some simple steps to make sure you are drawing near to HIM! 

1. Set a time and KEEP it for Bible reading, prayer, and soaking.  

2. Worship- humble your heart and fully enter in to his presence in what ever form that may look like!  Worshiping with a pure and child like heart will prepare you for transformations! 

3. Get a hold of that HOLY SPIRIT- some are so scared of this awesome and powerful gift.  I know many people who have been afraid of it because it makes you vulnerable- vulnerable because God is going to use you in a mighty way!  Allowing God to use us with his power is amazing, not scary! 

4. Fellowship- Make sure you are attending a church and get involved there!  Check for small groups and find a small group that you can be honest and humble with.  Don't be shy but build each other up.  

So today I pray for each of you reading this!  I pray you would honestly ask these questions and search your heart.  I pray God would reveal His heart to you and  your heart would fall deeper in love with HIM.  I pray transformations and restorations to start in your lives!  AMEN!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
