Encouraging and Inspiring November

Each and every day we should be thankful when we open our eyes, but for the month of November, I will share a prayer a day which is for God who we owe so much to and take so for granted.  He is the only person I know that will forgive you no matter what you do so we owe Him our lives, don’t you think?

Be encouraged with Scripture on why we should offer gratitude and how to offer our thanks. It’s so natural with the Christmas season (or whenever of the year!) to be overpowered with every one of the undertakings and activities to do that we neglect to stop and reflect why we ought to celebrate. Pause for a moment to stop and read these prayers which you can use on each and every day upon rising as you ruminate over all the ways God has favored you!

Day 3 November 3, 2017

God, here and there life gets me down and I think that its difficult to see things to be grateful for. Open my eyes to see the endowments of blessings You’ve given me in my life. I will begin by saying thanks to You for loving me enough to come to earth and pass on so we can live respectively until the end of time. Amen.

Day 2 November 2, 2017

Dear Lord, teach me to offer You a heart of thanksgiving and praise in all my day to day situations of life. Show me how to be happy always, to praise Your Name continually and to give thanks in every one of my circumstances. I acknowledge them as Your will for my life (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). I long to bring joy to Your heart every day. Break the power of the enemy in my life. Defeat Him through my sacrifice of praise. Change my outlook and mentality into one of joyful happiness with my current circumstances. I thank You for… [Name a troublesome situation in your life by and by and say thanks to God for it.]

Jesus, I need to resemble You who complied with the Father without complaint. You grasped the chains of humankind when You walked this world. Forgive me for whatever reason I complain or compare myself as well as other people. Give me Your attitude of humility and appreciative acknowledgment. I need to resemble the Apostle Paul who learned gratitude in each situation. I choose to continuously offer You a sacrifice of praise, the fruit of lips that offer praise to Your name (Hebrews 13:15). I long to convey a smile to Your face. Show me the energy of a thankful heart. I realize that Your truth stays in a grateful and thankful heart.  “I will express thanks to the LORD as a result of His exemplary nature and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. O LORD, our Lord, how great is your name on all the earth! You have set your brilliance and glory over the sky.” (Psalm 7:17-18:1). In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Only Jehovah Can Fix All This by Valerie Cheers Brown

Only Jehovah can fix all this. – Isaiah 65:17

At the point when the Christian’s mind swings to nature, his heart moves in the direction of God in love and acclaim. In any case, when the unbelieving personality swings to nature, it turns from God.

On Earth Day, April 22, Tom Selleck facilitated a one hour TV special on sparing our condition. Numerous Hollywood famous people took an interest, concentrating on various natural issues and posturing handy arrangements we can do to offer assistance.

No mention of God

Do you often wonder why things are happening in this world the way are right now?  No specifying was made of God. Nothing was said of man’s transgression. Contamination implies dispensable diapers, styrofoam mugs, and fumes exhaust. Man’s endeavours to spare the earth gave off an impression of being man’s just expectation. The unconverted personality just does not consider God when it takes a gander at nature. Without a doubt, the unbelieving personality considers nature to be a divine being.

Our arrangement looks to investigate the arrangement of God as it influences man and as it identifies with the greater part of God’s creation. This lesson considers nature as a piece of God’s endless arrangement for creation, concentrating on nature’s part in connection with God and His arrangement for nature. May our investigation turn our hearts to the Creator and Sustainer of creation. I welcome your cautious consideration regarding these writings from God’s Word regarding the matter of nature.

As we walked today in Bird Park in Richmond, Virginia ( a beautiful nature walk by the way).  I realized how God gives all kind of signs through his creations.  I noticed how the birds/geese were hungry and I read a sign while walking the path we were on and the sign stated the birds in Bird Park were actually Canadian Geese; which after I researched when got back to my hotel, usually will eat grass, but for some odd reason or another and then maybe they had eaten the part they like, they also like anything which is moldy, i.e. bread or any other waterfowl!  Wow, amazing isn’t it? They like anything that is mouldy but we as humans throw it out and think it is bad for us right?

Anyway, this will lead to what I am originally writing this blog about which is how nature teaches us about life and conduct.  Nature is God’s photo book for man, much like the photo books we provide for youngsters who are not yet ready to peruse. The photos recount a similar story the Bible tells with words. Like the Bible, fallen men can’t and won’t get a handle on the significance and the message God conveys to them. The instructing from nature, similar to that of the Bible, is flipped around and back to front, to man’s judgment.

The news is a perfect example of how men misconstrue God’s nature which teaches us about life and conduct.

Does nature seem to be more and more destructive and have you ever wondered why?

Well, I have certainly and went straight to Genesis where I remember what happened when Adam and Eve sinned and went against God’s word:

Whenever Adam and Eve sinned it conveyed a characteristic result to the earth. “What’s more, unto Adam He [God] stated, “In light of the fact that thou hast noticed unto the voice of the spouse, and has eaten of the tree of which I summoned thee, saying, `Thou shalt not eat of it,’ reviled is the ground for thy purpose; in distress shalt thou eat of everything the times of thy life (Gen. 3:17). The relatives of Adam turned out to be so rough and degenerate that God enabled the world to be demolished by a worldwide surge (Genesis 6:5,11). The wellsprings of the profound were separated (Genesis 7:11). There was awesome volcanic movement. The layers of the world’s outside layer were shaped and nature was turned out of its God-given course. The stage was set for tremors and executioner storms. As the outcomes of transgression have advanced from that day to this, the regular world is nearing its end; the consequences of our first guardians’ insubordination is winding up increasingly apparent as this world is destroying.

However, God is still in the matter of safeguarding, aiding, and mending. He holds out salvation and everlasting life to all who will get close to Him.

To show you how God works check this article out published by Science News titled: “Olive Groves May Be Rescued By Helpful Wasp.”

If you dig and read further you will find out that: “Olives luxuriating in radiant California forests may find that their new closest companion is a little dark colored wasp. Referred to researchers as Psyttalia cf. concolor, the little wasp can help thwart the olive organic product fly, an intense characteristic adversary or enemy of olives,” according to USDA/Agricultural Research Service.

Now, when said and done, “Isn’t God amazing?”

I hope this gives some to think about God even more!

Turn Your Worry Into Worship by Valerie Cheers Brown

There is no greater disability in society than the inability to see a person as more. – Robert M. Hensel

I began and am so proud to say that I had a hand in the beginning of the “Ticket to Work” program in Saint Louis back in the early 2000’s working under Larry Brown and Sam Jones in the Saint Patrick’s Building, downtown Saint Louis, MO.

What is Ticket to Work?

The program was intended to expel hindrances that shielded individuals with disabilities from working inspired by a paranoid fear of losing social security insurance. The Ticket to Work program is intentional, and it builds openings and decisions for Social Security (SS) incapacity recipients to acquire a business, professional recovery, and other help administrations from open and private suppliers, managers, or different associations.

Why I wrote this article is because of how you can turn your disabilities into the blessing by following and actually pursue your passion.

I would like to share with you a story which shows how we can begin businesses helping those with disabilities and inspire those with disabilities turn them into their passion and a career.

With the United States being considered a ‘Disability Nation,’ we turn this into a positive for all.

So at 14, she contacted to Art Enables, a studio, gallery and vocational program in Washington, D.C., where she truly needed to make that craftsmanship. However, Art Enables requires its individuals to be no less than 21 years of age.

That didn’t stop her. Amid the seven-year hold-up, Clawson remained centered.

She and her folks kept in close touch with the display, and she submitted work to its shows as an exceptional visitor. After around 2,500 days, Clawson at long last joined the positions.

Art Enables is a considerable measure like some other expressions of the art studio — it has huge windows and a paint-splattered sink, it’s sufficiently tranquil to hear a paintbrush ring the sides of a water glass, and, obviously, it’s brimming with the workmanship.

Those things pulled in Clawson, yet she was likewise attracted to the specialists who make up the studio — craftsmen, similar to her, who have an inability or the like.

Never let anyone tell you that you can’t. Never give up! God made you special, so use it to shine and help others do the same!

I would like to introduce to you Krip Hop Rising:

What Do You Do When the Pharmaceutical Industry is the Criminal? by Valerie Cheers Brown

Isn’t is quite baffling but when you actually think about it, no pun intended, the Pharmaceutical Industry is a modern day organized crime drug cartel in the United States of America and the American public of people are accomplices hurting them own selves?

But the good thing is in the United States of America we are free to be free thinkers where we have a choice to take our own lives into our hands.

But you CAN take control of your health, and you can typically do so without …

 

 

 

Willpower To Your Health by Valerie Cheers Brown

I got an interesting article by Kelly Brogan MD – Holistic Psychiatrist, ” Tapering Psych Meds: The New Awakening.”

 

http://kellybroganmd.com/tapering-psych-meds-the-new-awakening/?utm_source=Kelly+Brogan+MD+Newsletter&utm_campaign=859a9d7c91-Tapering+Psych+Meds%3A+The+New+Awakening&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d0f977a8c5-859a9d7c91-122215393# 

Kelly Brogan MD – Holistic Psychiatrist, no mystery when God is part of the plan! I found getting off of all medications a plan ( no matter what kinds) and not difficult but the hardest part was giving it totally over to God and not taking the illnesses back and claiming a healing! This is when I was free to be me and then begin to help others! Once I realized that the only way for me to live medication free was to give my life to God and not let the disease rule my life. Once I determined that the side effects were worse than my original reason for taking prescription medications, no mystery when God was part of the plan and gave it all over to Him! He showed me that He loved me and most of all that I had to love me first to beat this for it to work! God gave me strength where I did not know I had! The easiest was believing in His healing and when I began to drink the Kangen water He sent to me and then started researching His natural green foods and plants and He showed me that the body would heal all by itself if I allowed Him to help fix the inside and this is when I learned to manage the outside and even more learned how to manage pain and not let it manage my life and share with others. – Valerie Cheers Brown

I Never Gave Up by Valerie Cheers Brown

Won’t you please click and share the Design by Val Go Green Backpack Project?

https://www.youcaring.com/valeriecheersbrown-746377

I feel so very deeply about this project mostly because I don’t want to see other children have to live their lives full of nerve pain due to degenerative disease as myself and many others born in the 1950’s.

If not carrying anything properly, wearing the wrong shoes (cushioned instep sole, supporting ankle and calf), not walking or sitting properly; protecting that spine which will eventually have lifetime problems when not taken care of.

This is why I came up with the idea of this Design by Val Go Green Backpack and researched and found an invention which was used for the soldiers during the Civil War.

Clinton W. Baxter was the inventor and this knapsack which was used for a multitude of things, i.e. pillow, but what I loved about this knapsack is was made to protect the soldier’s posture for long lengths of time standing, walking, etc.

I am working effortlessly to get this backpack to become an actual product and it seems when it has come to this backpack I have had the hardest time raising funds.

You see, I at the present am living on fixed income and am very blessed to be getting this, but it leaves me no room to invest in myself and no matter how hard I have prayed and tried, it just doesn’t seem to be working.

I have tried different ways, but God gave to me this way!

This does not mean I am going to give up on my vision of this backpack but it does mean that I have to let you know how much this product would mean to become an actual product to me!

I have come to the realization that if I get shares that this backpack has a chance of becoming a real product. I am praying that you like this campaign so much that you also want to be a part of and help me to make my vision come true and to become an actual product for our children.

I thank you in advance and when I believe and have faith God gives to me courage, patience, and endurance and this has been an idea for a very long time,  yet I believe!

God is My Problem Solver by Valerie Cheers Brown

So many are making it their business to tell others how to do everything in books, in speaking engagements, in blogs, on the television, in mass media, just everywhere!

The only person who tells me what to do is God.

As a matter of fact, He is the only one I trust these days more than ever.

When is the last time you thanked God?

Do you thank Him only when He answers prayer?

I thank Him when I don’t get what I pray for.

I thank Him for giving the most important thing in life which is PEACE!

Without peace nothing else follows in order.

I thank Him when I get a blessing.

I thank Him when I don’t.

I thank Him for giving me patience.

I thank Him for giving me troubles.

I thank Him for giving me strength.

I thank Him for giving me endurance.

I thank Him when I am sad.

I thank Him when I am happy.

I thank Him before I close my eyes

I thank him when I open them.

I even thank Him when the devil comes.

I thank Him when the devil goes.

I thank Him for life.

I thank Him for LOVE.

I thank Him for my good days

I thank Him for my bad days.

I thank Him for my family

I thank Him for my friends

I even thank Him more for my enemies.

I thank Him for never leaving me nor forsaking me!

Who solves your problems?

He is the one and the sooner we put all our faith in Him, the better our world will be.

 

 

Guess the Color the Original Statue of Liberty? by Valerie Cheers Brown

Did you know the Original Statue of Liberty introduced to the U.S. was a Statue of a… Black Woman”. There is a considerable measure of history that didn’t make it into the history books for our schools. READ, get you a book and educate yourself.

A History Lesson

It is difficult to trust that after my numerous times of tutoring optional and post) the accompanying actualities about the Statue of Liberty was never educated. Many thousands if not a huge number of individuals including myself have gone to the Statue of Liberty throughout the years however yet I can’t discover one individual who knows the genuine history behind the Statue-stunning. Yes,amazing that so much vital Black history, (for example, this) is avoided us (Black and White). What aggravates this even is the way that the present contort on history sustains and advances racial domination to the detriment of Black Pride.

The Statue of Liberty was initially a Black lady, in any case, as memory serves, it was on the grounds that the model was Black.

In a book called “The Journey of The Songhai People“, as indicated by Dr. Jim Haskins, an individual from the National Education Advisory Committee of the Liberty-Ellis Island Committee,professor of English at the University of Florida, and productive Black creator, brings up that what invigorated the first thought for that 151 foot statue in the harbor.

Documents of Proof:

1.) You may go and see the original model of the Statue of Liberty, with the broken chains at her feet and in her left hand. Go to the Museum of the City of NY, Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street write to Peter Simmons and he can send you some documentation.

2.) Check with the N.Y. Times magazine, part II_May 18, 1986. Read the article by Laboulaye.6

3.) The dark original face of the Statue of Liberty can be seen in the N.Y. Post, June 17, 1986, also the Post stated the reason for the broken chains at her feet.

4.) Finally, you may check with the French Mission or the French Embassy at the U.N. or in Washington, D.C. and ask for some original French material on the Statue of Liberty, including the Bartholdi original model.
