Illuminator Series #8: He calls You by Name



"To whom will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things. Who brings out their host by number; He calls them by name, by the greatness of His power; not one is missing. Why do you say, O Jacob, And speak, O Israel; “My way is hidden from the Lord, and my just claim is passed over by my God?” Isaiah 40: 25 – 27

Have you ever watched the night sky, just when the stars start to shine? That’s when God says to us, “I bring out their host by number, I call them by name...by the greatness of His power…and not one is missing.”

God tells us that, even with billions of stars, “Not one of them is missing.” “I call them all by name”. He has a name for every single star and sees each one.

Why does He share this with us? Because God wants us to understand that there is no one on this earth that He does not know intimately. There is no one on this earth that He does not see. There is no one on this earth that He has forgotten.

The God of the universe, the Lord of lords, the Everlasting Father - He knows each of us by name. He knows who you are, and what is going on in your life, in the most intricate detail.

Life has a way of making us doubt whether He knows what we are going through. “God, are you really there?” we ask. But Jesus said, “Your Heavenly Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”

Remember His promise, “…those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint”.

The Illuminator Series #7: In the Eye of the Storm


“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who build his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” Matt. 7:24-27.

Like many of you, I’ve been through some tough times this last year. I’ve struggled with sadness and grief. I’ve been in the eye of the storm and been shaken to the core.

More than ever I know that God’s Word is constant, sure, and true. My emotions and preferences, on the other hand, change daily.

Let’s develop a deeper, more profound relationship with Christ. There will storms in life. But building our lives on the His Word, we will end up standing on the other side.

Natures True Medicine - Vitamin D3 Review #naturestruemedicine





Product Description from the Company

Vitamin D3 is a vitamin that is critical to keeping both phosphorus and calcium in balance and being used properly. Dr. Oz suggests that Vitamin D3 is the second most important vitamin you can take. Many people do not get adequate vitamin D3 because they do not spend enough time in the sun. Since this vitamin is so important, you want to look into vitamin D3 supplements to ensure that you are getting enough and getting the right ingredients. It's especially critical that your vitamin d3 does not contain the harmful and very toxic Magnesium Stearate filler.

Anthony Norman, MD, in a recent article in Endocrine Today, stated "it is now widely appreciated by vitamin D scientists that 50% of people in North America and Western Europe are vitamin D insufficient. Given that two-thirds of the people are vitamin D-insufficient or deficient. It is clear that merely eating vitamin D-rich foods is not adequate to solve the problem for most adults."

How Much Vitamin D3 Do You Need?

Adult men and women ages 19 to 69 need to get 600 IUs each day and when 70 and over, you need 800 IUs each day, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements. This is only for those with solid levels of this vitamin which a large majority of people do not have.

- Pure, Potent and all Natural Vitamin D3

- No junky fillers, all of the good none of the bad!!

- Independent 3rd party lab tested, MADE IN USA

- 2,000 IU per easy to swallow softgel

- Money Back Guarantee, 100% safe and effective

The Illuminator Series #6: Why Do We Sing in the Choir?



Why do we sing in the Choir?



  • Because we are so grateful for God’s love…His mercy…His sacrifice.


“O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name; make known His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him; talk of all His wondrous works. Glory in His holy name; let the heart of those who seek the Lord rejoice.” Psalm 105:1-3


  • Singing in the choir allows us to participate in the ministry of leading worship. We are not just there to sing an anthem or two – we are there to worship and to LEAD in worship. It is a great privilege that brings us great joy!


“Oh, that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people, and praise Him in the assembly of the elders.” Psalm 107:31, 32


  • We share the good news of Jesus Christ!


“O sing unto the Lord a new song; sing unto the Lord all the earth. Sing unto the Lord, bless His name; show forth His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the heathen, His wonders among all people. For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised.” Psalm 96:1-4


  • Singing in the choir allows us to get to know so many wonderful people who have a heart of service and love the Lord. A choir becomes a family who serves together, prays together, and loves each other.

KIND Nuts & Spices - NEW Flavors! #kindawesome #review



Product Description

KIND has added Caramel Almond and Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond to its KIND Nuts and Spices line of bars. These seemingly indulgent flavors expand the line to include eight flavors containing only 5g of sugar (or less) - and nothing artificial.

KIND's newest flavors are further proof that you can naturally lower the sugar in a snack while still maintaining a sweet and indulgent taste. Each bar is also crafted from a foundation of whole almonds which recent studies have shown have life-extending properties.

Caramel Almond and Sea Salt is made with a seemingly indulgent blend of savory sea-salt and sweet caramel drizzled over crunchy almonds. This bar is a delightfully low-sugar healthy snack that only tastes like dessert.

Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond is made with dark roast coffee and whole almonds blended with honey and drizzled in dark chocolate to form a bar that, with just 5g of sugar, only tastes indulgent.

Both flavors contain 7g fiber, 6g protein and 5g sugar.

CHALLENGE: We challenge you to pair these bars with that 3PM pick me up of coffee or tea

My Reivew

We absolutely LOVE these KIND snack bars! Amazingly delicious, the Caramel Almond and Sea Salt is my favorite. It really feels like an indulgence. Delicious and healthy? Yes, please!
