A Word From Mrs. Juanita - "Sin Is To Be Avoided!"

Good Morning Everyone,

Luke 10: 41-42::  “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.   Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Romans 16:17:  I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.

2 John 1: 10:  If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11. for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.
City Hall is a place where our leaders gather to make major decisions about the way we choose to live...  They are suppose to be there to serve, uphold, and maintain Christian Lifestyles this nations was born with...Selah. 

Grace makes a man serious about his soul; and a soul without Grace is dangerous...Think Of This: Sin is contagious!  When a man suffers from a contagious disease no one wants to come near him.  

Why would we allow ourselves or our children to come in contact with this person who has a disease?... Why are we not afraid of sin

How dare we risk ourselves or our children by allowing evil to come into our homes. Sin is far more deadly than Shingles, Smallpox or fever...Selah. 

The point is this. In the most earnest affairs of this life a Christian must never forget the one thing necessary, the care of your soul. Your soul is as precious as the breath that you breathe...  

All of our actions, thoughts; and professions needs to be accompanied with special care least we error; and anything not of faith is sin...  its hurtful, and counted as dung; and it will not help you get to heaven. 

The dignity of one’s soul requires the one and Chief Most Needful Thing Is To  – Set At The Feet Of Jesus! 

Let’s decide to start this day with a prayer for our city and nation, and expect to see changes and to have a great work day!  God Bless.
Almighty God Our Father, we know that the nation whose God is the Lord is Blessed, so we declare today that the Houston Metropolitan Area, is a city that worships the living God. 

We Confess that we are a city that will love our neighbors and we will love ourselves. We declare that we are a city that trusts in You and practice teachings we have learned from Your Word... 

O Lord, we will live safely in this land and we do prosper.  We expect Blessings to rest upon our business, educational, political, judicial, social, technological, and health system in our city and our nation. 

Lord, we declare that we are a city that acknowledges Your Son, Jesus Christ. 

Father, we declare that our councilmen are men and women of integrity who are obedient concerning us that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  

We confess that the upright are in position in this city and shall remain in authority...  But! the wicked shall be cut off and the treacherous shall be rooted out of it in Jesus name.  

Father, “It is written that the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord and You turn it whichever way You desire... 

In Jesus name we pray expecting to see a manifestation of Your power and Glory....So let it be done!

A Word From Mrs. Juanita - "Peace Not Panic! Our Best Defense"

Psalm 31: 2-3 :  Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.  Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
Stand up for righteousness, stand up for truth; and God will be at your side forever. If we face opposition when we are trying to do what’s right, we must cry out to the Lord. He alone is our “rock of refuge, a fortress of defense.” He is our reliable source of strength and protection.... When we trust the power of God, we can experience peace and not panic.  God Bless.
Awesome Father, You are a great God, and a Great King above all other gods. You merely spoke and the heavens were created. You breathed the Word and all the stars were born. You assigned boundaries to the seas and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.  

Lord, let the whole world fear You and let everyone stand in awe of You! You are great and greatly to be praised. You are to be feared above all gods. 

Our Father, Your works are wonderful, and we praise You with our whole hearts. We will tell of Your marvelous works. 

Holy One, You control this worlds events. You remove Kings and set up other kings. You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. You reveal deep and mysterious things and know what lays hidden in darkness, even though You are surrounded by Light. 

O Lord, as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is Your Mercy towards those who fear You, as far as the east is from the west, You have removed our transgressions from us. 

O Lord, Our God, how excellent is Your name in all the earth. You are the One who forgives “All” our sins, heals us from diseases, redeems our lives from destruction, and crown us with tender mercies... You fill our lives with good things and renew our youth like the eagle’s. How we honor You as Lord and Savior. 

Holy One, we are not ashamed of the gospel, it is power unto salvation, and today, we will speak of Your righteousness and Your praise all day long. You are our portion and our Hope. 

In Jesus name we give You honor and glory with thanksgiving...  Amen...Amen!

A Word From Mrs. Juanita - "God's Plan For Couples!"

Good Morning Everyone,

Jeremiah 29: 11: “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord,’ plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Matthew 18: 19 : “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.

1 Peter 3: 7 : Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

God does have a will for families, and He imparts specific directions for His people through prayer. But He does not reveal His entire plan at one time. Prayer is vital to hearing from God and gaining insight. Selah. God requires couples to be doers of the Word. Failure to do so can hinder your prayers...Selah. 

When you seek the Lord and press into the knowledge of His will, changes will be made in you, your children, and other family members in prayer. Spending time in God’s presence becomes precious and you will grow stronger and have a deeper and more intimate relationship with the Lord and your mate. 

Become committed to praying and obeying God’s Word; and you will discover His plans and purposes for you and your family.   Allow Him to show you how to walk out those plans in everyday life. Work on building a sure foundation... After All, two is always better than one! God Bless.

Blessed are You, Lord God Our Father, forever and ever... You are Lord, and You are Great and Greatly to be praised throughout the heavens and in all the earth. Yours O Lord is the Kingdom and You are exalted as head over all.   Both riches and honor comes from You dear Lord, and You reign over all. 

Father, You will fulfill the desire of those who fear You and will hear their cry and save them.

Father, we lift up these couples for a harmonious marriage. We confess their marriage is honorable, worthy, precious, and of great price. We declare they live in one accord with each other, having the same mind. 

We declare they delight in each other and are united in spirit. Thank You Father, we believe they are gentle, compassionate, courteous, tender hearted and bear up under anything and everything that comes... 

O Our Father, we declare they seek peace and it keeps their hearts in quietness and blessed assurance. We confess these couples grows stronger day by day founded on Your Word; being rooted and grounded in Your love. 

Father, we thank You for watching over Your Word and performing it in Jesus name we give you praise with thanksgiving... Amen... Amen.

A Word From Mrs. Juanita - "Healer Of My Hurts!"

Good Morning Everyone,

Exodus 15: 25-26: Printed: 26: He said, “If you will listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying His commands and keeping all his decrees, then I will not make you suffer any of the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the Lord who heals you.” Psalm 103: 3: who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.

Has there been a situation you have encountered recently at your work station or in a relationship that has been bitter to drink or swallow? Our God heals the broken hearted and He binds up your wounds... Give your hurts to Him and He will heal your bitterness. Then you will be able to drink of His living waters.
He is Jehovah-Raphe, The God of your health.” Forgiving someone does not mean that they were right and you were wrong. Forgiveness is about your heart attitude and following God’s commands in your life... God will make an exception between you and that person who hurt you so deeply... You can either get better or remain bitter? Selah. What will it be? It is a choice you make. God Bless.

Holy Father, sometime it seems very dark in our world, but we only need a small flame to light a dark corner. Lord, help us to shine as lights in our world. Father, we cannot do this on our own strength, but as we trust You Most Holy One to empower us; and as we accept Your promises and obey them, we will walk in victory.
Our Father, we pray this day and everyday, that we may lighten the lives of those whose world seems dark with anxiety; and who feel unable to continue because their path ahead looks threatening. Strengthen them by Your power and Your might in their inner man.
  O, Our Father, You are so faithful, and we desire to be like You. Holy One, this day, may our faithfulness inspire them to trust in You completely. In Jesus name we pray with thanksgiving... Amen... Amen.

Good Morning Everyone,

Jer. 33: 3. Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Prov. 16: 3. Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.

1 Cor. 10: 13. No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind.

 God wants to give us a strategy. You need to ask Him. Ask for a strategy and he will cause our thoughts to be conducive to His will. Not anything that we are going through is a surprise to God... Ask God, and He will lead us through the valley. You will go through the valley...
The Lord has equipped us with everything that we need. We have Angels, The Scripture that gives instructions, prophetic declarations, and we have saints with illumination... Remember: God is faithful; he will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear. But when we are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that we can endure it.
This week end, consider God’s Wisdom, His strength, His faithfulness and truth. Consider His willingness to undertake our burdens as we give them all to Him...and no one else i.e( self, friends, fortune or chance) or whatever...Selah.
In Him, you can do all things because it’s He Who gives us strength... We have the Victory! Be Blessed.

Sovereign Lord, Establish our thought and quiet our minds so that we are able to work the works assigned to us.
Father, we realize where there is works to be done, there will be thoughts. Holy One, help us to keep our mind free from trouble and distractions as we remember Your counsel.
O,Our father, teach us to trust Your love, and to dwell in confidence because You hold us in the palm of Your hands; and our face is ever before You.
Thank You Father, we are strong and full of Your Grace and we will fulfill our ministry that You have entrusted us to. We love You Father, and we worship and give You honor and praise.
In Jesus name... Amen... Amen.

A Word From Mrs. Juanita - "Prepare & Don’t Despair Nor Faint!"

Good Morning Everyone,

Jeremiah 4: 3: This is what the Lord says to the people of Judah and to Jerusalem: “Break up your unplowed ground and do not sow among thorns. Isaiah 40: 3: Listen! It’s the voice of someone shouting, “Clear the way through the wilderness for the Lord! Make a straight highway through the wasteland for our God!

Making Plans For Your Tax Return Refund? Have you started making plans on sowing or eating your seed? There is a saying, “If it’s not enough to meet my need, it must be my seed!”...Question: Do you have rocks in the garden of your heart that need to be cleared before you plant? Only God can take away a stony heart and create a clean one. Is your heart full of crooked ways and rough places that still love sin? ...Notice: Sowing is a part of your worship... Know this: A divided mind in unstable in all it’s ways and is not dependable, reliable, or faithful... Do you sow your seed unto man and not to God?... Maybe this is why you’ve had crop failure...Selah. Do you sometimes feel you are about to faint in your spirit; and hear these words coming out of your mouth like,I don’t know how much longer I can take this.” or “It doesn’t matter what I do, nothing works.” Know This: Fainting never wins and winning never faint...Selah. This year, plan to sow into good ground. Prepare for your harvest even before you plant. Have the God kind of faith and condition your heart to receive a good crop. Make sure the soil that you sow into is God. When you plow with God, you are actually plowing up your own fallow ground. God doesn’t need cultivating, but we do.. After All, you are the one who reaps the harvest; and the harvest still belongs to the owner of the field..Selah. This year we are expecting a double portion. Sow as unto the Lord, and the harvest will come back to you. Just Do It! God Bless.

Gracious Father, You are Good, and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy to all those who call upon You in spirit and in truth. Father,You are Great and You do Wondrous things.You alone are God and there is none like You. Father God, we need You... Lord, You have given us Your Word as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Open the eyes of our heart to see You clearly. Holy One, teach us how to worship You with an undivided heart and we will walk in Your truth. Father, when distractions begin to flood our mind today, keep us focused and on purpose. Dear Lord, sometimes it is hard to function when everything around us is so dysfunctional. Lord, Our eyes are on You. Father, we thank You for filling us with a full, deep, and clear knowledge of Your will and therefore we go forth this day and everyday to bear fruit for Your delight according to the root within us. In Jesus name we will never cease to give You praise with thanksgiving. Amen... Amen.

Cancer - “Something that is happening FOR me vs. Something that is happening TO me.”

It Happened to Me:  By Nancy Gauthier

Last year, my husband and I took the most adventurous vacation ever in St. Lucia in the Caribbean. We went zip lining, hiking, dining on a mountaintop, deep-sea fishing, etc. We enjoyed every moment and met a lot of wonderful people on the island.

After returning from our trip and settling in for a week or so, I decided to go to the doctor and get my annual physical, which I’ve gotten every year since I was 19 years old. Since I have thyroid problems, I make sure to get blood work done annually. Well, my PCP was on vacation and I was determined to get my physical done so I decided to go to another doctor. After the examination, the doctor told me that my nodules appeared to be swollen and he wanted to perform a biopsy. I was told that it was nothing to worry about because 97% of the time, they are benign and I would get my results back in 7-10 days. The test was done on Wednesday and to my surprise I received a call on Friday from the doctor himself stating that he had bad news for me. His words to me were, “I’m sorry to inform you that your results are back and you have thyroid cancer.” Afterwards I cried, asking God, “Why me, Why me. I’m one of the healthiest people that’s alive”. I drowned myself in my private pity party for several days.

A day or two later a still voice whispered, “Why not you? Why do you feel that you are so great that this illness should be bestowed upon someone else?” Nothing in this world is greater than having a relationship with God. Within moments of dealing with this reality check, I began to look at this situation as “Something that is happening FOR me vs. Something that is happening TO me.” My ultimate desire was to go to MD Anderson, because it is known all over the world for being the #1 Cancer Hospital. I had done my research and the doctor that I wanted didn’t have an appointment available for 2-3 months. Unbelievable!!! I called my endocrinologist and told him that MD Anderson could get me in within 2-3 months. Upon my surprise, I was told I didn’t have that long to wait. My husband, Lloyd Gauthier, and I went into prayer. We cried together, laughed together, and took so many strolls down memory lane. At this point we didn’t know what else to do. Through it all, we knew God was still in control and had a plan.

My doctor suggested a surgeon for us – Dr. Borski. After talking to Dr. Borski for a few minutes, I knew he was the doctor for me, even though he was not a doctor at MD Anderson. My husband also said that he felt a sense of peace that he was the surgeon that we were to use. Sometimes we get wrapped into names (MD Anderson), but God is everywhere and HE is the ultimate healer. We do what we know to do in the natural but then we lean on Him to do the supernatural. I was initially told that I would have to do several rounds of radiation. I had already declared that after my first round I would be cancer free. I wouldn’t tell anyone that it was easy, but it was worth it. God allowed me to be surrounded by so many angels during this time. I met others who willingly shared their stories of their battles with thyroid cancer. One lady that I met stated that she had to go through 30 sessions of chemotherapy. She asked me how many I had gone through and I responded that I had not gone through any chemotherapy sessions but had only done one round of radiation, just as I had declared (thanks to God).

After my surgery and radiation treatment, I made several trips to the hospital for follow-up blood work and monitoring of my Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) level (something that everyone should have checked). For those who don’t know, the normal range for the TSH level is between 0.5 and 5.0 (remember that the highest it should be is 5.0). At one point, even my endocrinologist was shocked to see that my TSH level was 86.9. He couldn’t understand how I was functioning. In the end, my TSH level did come down into the lower single digits and I continue to ensure that it is in normal range.

I can’t help but to cry when I think about how good people were to me. Lloyd, thank you sooooo much for being the spouse that everyone dreams of having on their side. I thank God everyday for allowing me to share my life with you. Through it all, he refused to leave my side for a moment. Now that’s my soul mate. Thank you, Mom for your prayers and being there with me. Mothers like you make the world a better place. Special thanks for my family for being there with me when I needed you the most. LOVE YOU GUYS SOOOOO MUCH! It’s good to have friends that are prayer warriors. Thanks to my neighbors for cooking for us and helping to maintain the yard. Thanks for all the scarves so that I could keep my scar covered to reduce the chances of infection. I had over 150 scarves that were given to me. Thanks for the coworkers that wore scarves to show their support (especially the men. :-) You guys are the greatest!!!! Thank you for the prayers, cards, letters, gifts, monetary donations. My coworker is a member of Brookhollow Church in Houston, TX. Thank you to the cancer ministry of Brookhollow that flooded me with cards and words of encouragement, even still until this day.

Life is GOOD! In the end, I got the VICTORY. After all of the prayers of agreement from everyone in my close circle, the goal was reached and I can declare that I am cancer free in Jesus name. What the devil meant for evil, God meant for good. I can now say proudly, “I AM A CANCER SURVIVOR”. We celebrated my victory by going to Turks and Caicos Island in the Caribbean this year. God is so good. For those that say, “it’s the best cancer to have”, ask Roger Ebert (American #1 film critic, journalist, and screenwriter). He recently lost his long fought battle against thyroid cancer. I realize that my situation could have ended differently but I thank God that He intervened. Some may say, “why do you give God the credit when you stated that you had surgery to remove your cancer?” My response – if just going to the hospital to be treated for cancer was the answer, all cancer patients treated in hospitals would survive. This is not to suggest that cancer patients who lost their battles, didn’t have faith; there are many factors to come into play in such battles as this. But I believe in a Higher Power that has control over that which is not seen. I believe in an Authority that understands that which confuses man. Again, this didn’t happen TO me, it happened FOR me and THROUGH me. There is someone who’s now going through the same thing but doesn’t have the spouse, family, neighbors, or any type of support unit to help them through this. My prayer is that my story will encourage you. We cannot control what happens in our lives, but only how we react.

Just remember, “Feed your faith and your enemies will starve to death.” An enemy is not always an illness but can be challenges with finances, marriage, difficult children, mental depression, etc. Be encouraged and know that God’s plans are bigger than our plans.
