1Thessalonians 5:18-In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
MEDITATION: Today and every day let us thank God for being faithful when we are faithless. God blesses us in many ways, and in more ways than we know. In our eyes things may look dim and dark, but in God's eyes sunny and bright. We may not be where we want to be, but we are surely not where we use to be. Don't concentrate on what you don't have, but what you do have. We have God's Grace and Mercy that brings us through each time, and for that let us say THANKS!!!!!!!
BLESS OTHERS AND GOD WILL MOST CERTAINLY BLESS YOU!
Lord, thank You for being faithful, and for every blessing. Thank You for blessing us when we simply did not deserve to be blessed. We just want to say thank You Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Have a blessed and safe Thanksgiving.

Reading God's Word:
- Builds a relationship with God
- Builds endurance
- Builds our faith
- Fills us with peace that surpasses all understanding
- Puts joy and comfort in our hearts
We are spiritual creatures at heart, our spirits are housed by our physical bodies. Let's do everything we can to keep our spiritual house in shape. In order to be strong we must build our spirtual houses daily.
READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY! GET FIT WITH GOD'S WORD!
Dear Heavenly Father, forgive us of our short comings. Continue to mold and make us, and give us the strength to endure our situations. Thank You for grace and mercy, and most of all thank You for Your son Jesus Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Have a great week! Q. D. Johnson

This Weeks Scripture
James 3:6-The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. (NIV)
Out of the mouth can be love or hate, life or death. Why is it possible that out of the mouth we praise our Holy God with, we can tear down a person's spirit? The Bible speaks about the tongue and says that no man can tame it , and that it is unruly, evil and full of poison. What you say to others can have a lasting effect, whether good or bad. If you are speaking truth, it is the delivery that determines the outcome. Today let us speak kind and encouraging words to our brotherman. Let us build each other up and not tear each other down. Don't let your tongue spit fire, let your tongue be a river of flowing water that speaks life. Your tongue lies inside your mouth and at times can be deadly. Our God lives inside of us and He is ALWAYS refreshing and full of blessings.
Most Gracious, Heavenly Father give us a heart like Yours. Teach us to speak life and not death, for we know that our words have power. Tame our deadly tongues, and forgive us of our sins willingly and unwillingly. Teach us this day to walk in Your ways, in Jesus name. Amen
How will you begin to use your tongue for uplifting and not down pulling?
Have a blessed week! Qua Sonya D. Johnson

Genesis 39: 20-21-Then Joseph's master took him and put him into the prison, a place where the King's prisoners were confined. And he was there in the prison. But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. (NKJ)
There are often times when we think that things are getting better but they actually get worse. The life of Joseph is such a powerful story, because he had a dream that he would one day be ruler over many. Well you see, Joseph went from the pit to the palace to prison. But eventually after he had gone through test and trials he was ruler over Egypt, just as he had dreamed. We have to remember what God has revealed to us in the light still exist in the dark. The Bible tells us that God was with Joseph while he was in the pit, palace, and in the prison. Since God is never changing, that same God is with us in our "Pit Experience." God is molding and making virtuous men and women at this very hour, so right now your purpose for being in the pit has PROMISE. So when the going gets tough, the tough trust God. Just when you think everything is against you, that is when it is working for your good.
WHILE IN THE PIT PRAISE!
Pray for the victims who have lost family members to the fires in California, as well as the Astronauts that are in space. Continue to pray for our children and our school systems.

MEDITATION: Building a child's character starts at home. People that interact with your child daily also contribute to your child's character building. It is very important to monitor who pours into your child's life. Deciding what daycare or school your child attends is as equally important as who interacts and pours into the child's life. The saying "It takes a village to raise a child" is so true. That village may include, teachers, babysitters, God-parents, and sometimes neighbors. But the village must have Godly love and have a genuine love for children. God has graciously given us our children as gifts. The gift of a child should be cherished and appreciated. As parents it is our responsibility to nurture, teach, direct, discipline, and protect our gift. Often times we have to make sacrifices to make sure our children are well taken care of. It may be given up a career, relationship, personal goals or even hobbies. Spending quality time with our children are important as well. Anytime spent with the child can be considered "quality time," because it is giving them your full attention. Your child's greatest need is the security of knowing that you care. Give your child something that money cannot buy and that is your time. You will be building a lifelong relationship each minute you spend with your child.

Amos 4:13-He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth- the Lord God Almighty in His name.
Is there anything too hard for God? Let us ask ourselves that question today. Many of us are trying to handle situations on our own, when in fact we are not capable of achieving the task. When we try to fight the battle with our human strengths, the situation seems extremely difficult and unbearable. God has created everything and he can most certainly fix anything. He will make a way when it seems there is no way and he steps in right on time. The same God that formed the moutains can fix broken marriages, homes, relationships and provide jobs to the jobless and be a friend to the friendless. He is an Almighty on time God and there is none like Him. Try Him!
Let go and let God!
Have a blessed week, continue to pray for our local schools. And remember there is no love like God's love.

1Samuel 2:2- There is no one holy like the Lord, There is no God but you, there is no Rock like our God. (NCV)
No one can love you like God can. When the world beats you up all day long, remember your God. For He is your your Rock, your Solid Foundation, your Sword & Shield, your Everything. He is not a sometime God, He is an All the time God. He loves in spite of our faults, unlike people. Holy is our God and that separates His love from any love you have ever experienced. God's love is never self-centered, and is always sacrificial. Lean on what is sure and true, the Rock for it is all you need! And that my friend is, JESUS!
THE LOVE OF GOD, THERE IS NO OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!

Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls- Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
God wants to know if a situation gets a little heated, can you stand still and trust Him. As long as things are in our favor we are on fire for God, but when things get too hot the flame goes. When adversity comes don't look at the problem focus on an All Mighty, All Knowing, All Seeing and a Always Faithful God. Gain strength through pain and grow through grief, realizing that through these things God is blessing and building us. Faith is commitment to God, and believing that He does not make mistakes and He always come through. A proud person relies on his own power and accomplishments but a righteous person relies on God. Stand firm in the fire knowing that God has your back.
Rejoice and know that no matter what He is God!!!!!!!!!
Have a great week, and remember forward this message to a friend. Please leave a comment, on the post, simply click on Devotionals by Qua Sonya at the end of the post.

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
Today and everyday we should love our brothers, God commands us to. Let's learn to be patient and love in spite of. Remember to pray for your brother, they may not be where you are spiritually. God shows us grace and mercy daily and He is a forgiving and loving God. If your heart is tarnished, ask God to give you a clean heart. God forgives and loves us, you must do the same for your fellow brother.
LOVE IS FORGIVING AND MOVING ON!

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
Sometimes in life when we step outside of God's plan and into our own, God must bring us back. The bringing back is never comfortable but in God's eyes it is always the best. You may be in a place where it is night time, but in God's time it will be morning. God is our strength at night and our joy in the morning.
LOOK FOR THE SUN TO RISE!!!!!!!!!!

Micah 7:8 "Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.
When you fall remember you are never out, God is always there to position you back in place.It doesn't matter how bad it looks, because nothing is to hard for God. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, sometimes you can't always see it. So keep your eyes on the creator and maker of all things and press your way through the tunnel.
BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE!!!
