“Afraid no More” Clara Peters

As I was riding back from the country in Louisiana I realized how much I missed GOD’s country as my mother always called it.  It was so peaceful and so surreal.  I went there for one thing but GOD came in the midst and show me something else and it was beautiful.

When people see me they see what they see but other than seeing GOD all over me what they don’t see is that country girl.  As I was walking from the house I grew up in to the house my dad built my mother about 3 years before she passed I was walking barefoot on rocks down the pathway.  I had my 4 month old grandson in my arms and a couple others walking along side me and was like how can you do that.  I said I will race you barefoot on these rocks.  He was shocked I love being out there in GOD’s country.   The grandbaby enjoyed the run with his gmomma.

Whenever I went home I would go everywhere with my Mother as that was our time unless my dad was not at work because a dad’s girl is who I am as well.  Love me some him.  However, we would always go to the graveyard but I was always afraid I remember one time I stayed in and locked the doors my mother laughed at me and said these is not the ones to worry about.  I was afraid and no one could change that. 

I must say and I had a good laugh as I thought about it and talked about it this time and that is I was always afraid of the graveyard.  When my mother passed in 2004 and I was home in the country I did not care what time it was dark or not I went to see my QUEEN and yes by myself.  I am not afraid anymore, if I want to visit my KING and QUEEN I go to where their body is and I am good.  My mother got the last laugh on that one. 

I had another laugh as my grandchildren left the house and went riding on the bikes, unbeknownst to me, my daughter, and sisters they went to the graveyard to see their grandparents and my brother their uncle before we left.  They said they had to go see them before we left, I laughed because here they are ranging from age 7-12 not afraid but I was up until my forties…..but GOD.  They showed me, gmomma you don’t have to be afraid.  I did go by the graveyard as I was leaving out and my 7 year old granddaughter said so and so is buried over there and the babies is buried over there, she was not afraid to walk the grounds of the grave and visit others. 

MOG/WOG, what are you afraid of, walk it out talk it out do whatever you have to but get rid of it today.  My mother showed me without my realizing my grandchildren showed me even more however I am not of afraid of anything have not been for years but by their action on this Sunday really the whole weekend I was like WOW.  Yes we can even learn from the little one and they don’t even be knowing that they are teach the grownup something.  TO GOD BE THE GLORY

GOD Bless You Love You Much

“Setting those right Boundaries”

Galatians 6:22 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Having boundaries defines who we are and who we are not. 

In every area of our life, we should set boundaries.  Boundaries are our personal space and how we will let people/things enter into that space.  By setting boundaries it will help with who you are, what your value is, and with what you feel and believe.  Boundaries such as your property (land) is like when you have that fence that let’s everyone know that you can enter onto my property or you can not enter.  This is the same for your person; you can let that into your space or you do not have to let that into your space.  That boundary that you let in, make sure your eyes are wide open as it could be a good or bad boundary. 

Boundaries should be laid down early within a relationship or kept in mind when you are apart of a team (work, ministry, friends).  Here is a few boundaries that you should include; be honest/direct, set priorities, know who you are, and obey the word of GOD.  There are temptations on both sides of the fence.  The enemy will send someone your way to test you on that boundary of not getting caught up in any negative way.

In Genesis 2:16, God said, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it, you will surely die.”  This was the first boundary set by GOD, he told this to Adam.  

Here are a few scriptures on boundaries.  Read, pray, and meditate on them all.

Galatians 6:5 “For each will have to bear his own load.”

2 Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?”

Acts 17:26 “And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,”

Matthew 19:16-22 “And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?”

Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

Proverbs 22:24 “Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man,”

 If there is no real boundaries set forth then the expectations can cause bitterness as you attempt to stay within that pure space with GOD.  When it comes to our spiritual priorities, we must make sure that the fence(s) are set up.  We must stand firm when we say no that we mean no and not yes.  Hold tight to what you are doing not just for GOD but for yourself as well.
