As Long As I Shall Live ~ DeVonne Reed

"As Long As I Shall Live I Will Testify To LOVE"
DeVonne Reed
5:00 am. November 1, 2015

Giving Thanks!
Thank you LORD for saving my soul. Thank you LORD for making me whole. YOU changed me. I am not who I used to be. Oh, what a difference YOU'VE made in my life.
I just gotta praise Him! To God be the Glory.

I am thankful! I am a purchase of Salvation, I am a blood bought Christian.
Allow me tell you how grateful I am. I have been given more chances than I ever deserved, in my life time. The times, I should not have made it through, HE saw fit to love me and look beyond all of my faults and chose to have compassion on me. I chose to repent quickly, and HE FORGAVE me for ALL of my failures. ALL, ALL, ALL of them! They are hidden, blotted out, and covered somewhere underneath the blood of Jesus Christ. I am thankful, I am a new creation in HIM. Yes, into the sea of forgetfulness HE placed all of my sins and there is a sign posted that says, "NO FISHING ALLOWED!"

Thank you Jesus for YOUR Grace and YOUR Mercy.

By me saying that I am a christian, it does not mean I have never failed HIM, and by me saying I am a Christian it does not mean that I think I am better than you. It does not mean  I think I am perfect, I never said I was. NO, I am not perfect. But, I am FORGIVEN!

My only desire is to be more like Jesus. Here I am Jesus, I give myself away. If you can use anything LORD, you can use me.

GOD is LOVE, GOD is GOOD, and yes, HE is still working on me. I trust HIM, especially when HE places me back on HIS wheel, HE is the POTTER, I am the clay. It is here, HE is continually remolding, remaking and reshaping my life, conforming me and transforming me into HIS image, because HE loves me so. Oh, To Be Like Jesus!

I will proclaim HIS goodness to me, I love HIM so! HE gave HIS best. Now, I will give my best to HIM, even though all I have to offer HIM, is me... I am such a small sacrifice, indeed. However, I will serve HIM for the rest of my life, and to the best of my ability, in Jesus name.    

After  ALL, isn't that ALL HE expects from you and me?

Singing this sweet chorus to my audience of ONE.
I Will Serve THEE Because I LOVE THEE
YOU Have GIVEN LIFE To Me

I Was NOTHING Before YOU Found Me
YOU Have GIVEN LIFE To Me

Heartaches, Broken Pieces
Ruined Lives Are Why YOU Died On Calvary

YOUR Touch Was What I Longed For
YOU Have GIVEN LIFE To Me

Now, I'm giving my best to YOU, LORD.

Hebrews 13:15 KJV
By HIM Therefore Let Us Offer The Sacrifice Of Praise To GOD Continually, That Is, The Fruit Of Our Lips GIVING THANKS To HIS Name.

Yes, As Long As I Shall Live I Will Testify To LOVE.

Much Love, DeVonne.

Repenantance = Forgiveness. Period!

The Master Builder of This Old House ~ DeVonne Reed

Luke 6:47-48 KJV
47. Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48. He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

House:
Noun
1. A dwelling place, that serves as living quarters.
2. A building in which something is sheltered.

House:
Verb
1. Contain or cover.
2. Domicile providing housing for.

Home:
1. A place where you live.
2. A dwelling, housing that someone is living in.

Psalm 139:14-17 KJV
14. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
17. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!


The Master Builder of This Old House by DeVonne Reed
October 26, 2015.

I know an expert draftsman, HE is the Master Architect. He drew up the blueprint for my house many years ago.

HE  knew and designed the exact and perfect floor plan, just for me. HE laid every block of this building according to HIS Master plan.

Over the years many storms have come through, placing wear and tear on the outside as well as the inside of this structure.
These storms have beat and hurled debris, as the tempestuous winds blew in every direction, as the heavy rain, fell against it.
Yes, it has been battered, but only left me with minor damage.

HE was there, all of the time! HE seen all of it. HE didn't seem to despair, HE just started over again, immediately reconstructing, rebuilding, and repairing this old house, from the inside out.
He filled in the broken places, he fixed all of them.
My roof had had a few leaks at one time, but he took off those old torn and shredded shingles. He replaced them with a new metal roof. He has me covered! HE is my covering, HE is protecting me.

With the Master builder on site, my building, it is well kept and maintained by the best! Yes, this old house is still standing!

It is a blessing to know that God has design a specific structure. It is suitable, usable, sustainable and it is mine, and He abides.

In this scripture below, substitute your name in the place of Peter's name.

Matthew 16:18 KJV
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter,
(______place your name here_______)
and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. ~ Jesus

I ask you, how powerful is that?!

Hebrews 3:6 KJV
But Christ as a Son over HIS OWN House; WHOSE HOUSE ARE WE, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

While i was reading the scrioture above, I placed a question mark after these words. "WHOSE HOUSE ARE WE?"
Ask yourself. My answer is, I am HIS!

I decided many years ago to build my house upon the Rock.
This ROCK is Jesus!
HE IS THE ONLY SOLID FOUNDATION.
ALL other ground is sinking sand!

If you feel like your house is falling apart, don't despair. You are able to rebuild. All you need to do is contact the Master builder. He will fix it for you!

What Past ~ DeVonne Reed

What Past.

Sounds like a good question doesn't it?
I am using it as a statement.

But you are free to choose.

Is there something from your past that you have buried in a shallow grave?

You've been thinking about it day and night. You have thought about it so much, in fact, that you are about to dig it up?

NO!
STOP!
DON'T DO IT!
Leave it there!
There is no LlFE in that thing!

#ITCAUSEDYOUTOOMUCHPAIN...

Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus!

The past is just that...YOUR past!

Leave What Past, in your past.

Your Words Are Your Bond ~ DeVonne Reed

Your Words Are Your Bond
By: DeVonne Reed

When we tell people we will do something do we keep our word and do it?
Your word is your bond.
Practice makes  perfect.

Do you remember when a man's WORD was his bond? I do.

As a child, I watch and heard my Daddy do business and tell people what he was going to do, and when he told you he was going to do something, his words were not just hot air balloons, rising only to fall. He actually did what he said!
Even without a signed contract, he kept and honored his word, it was his bond.

People will tell you anything, especially if they think it is what you want or need to hear. In their heart, they never intend to keep their word. I do not know too many folks who do, but thank God there are still a few.
Nowadays, it is imperative, you must protect yourself, get everything in writing and be sure it is signed.

Man is capable of failing.
However, I know ONE man who keeps HIS WORD! HE watches over it to perform it!
JESUS IS THE WORD and HIS WORD IS HIS BOND! JESUS signed, sealed and deliver HIS WORD with and in His own blood! He is The Covenant Partner.

Jeremiah 1:12 KJV
Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

HE REMAINS FAITHFUL! Remember, JESUS NEVER FAILS!

Hebrews 13:8.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY and FOREVER!

What we say, yes, it matters.
Your Words Are Your Bond.

Much Love, DeVonne.

My Flight ~ DeVonne Reed

My Flight
By: DeVonne Reed
Monday October 19, 2015.
5:00 am.

In flight, I am on a journey and GOD IS my PILOT!

GOD is my Pilot, I have walked on board His vessel. I'm buckled in my first class seat. The Pilot just announced that my flight is right on schedule. My departure is smooth, fluid and flowing. I have removed my seat belt and reclined my seat. The flight attendants are treating me like I am royalty, because they recognize me.  I am HIS daughter.

The Pilot did not say how long the flight would take, nor did he mention that there may be delays or perhaps a few lay overs. But, I am safe inside.

He did not say that the flight wouldn't get bumpy at times, nor did he say I would not experience turbulence.  I am in HIM, resting, knowing I am safe. He is carrying me through the flight of my life. I rest assure that it will not be as rough, with Him in the cockpit of my heart. Even though I may be traveling through, or in the midst of a storm in my life. He Is carrying me!

I have faced irregular atmospheric motion and many pressures, many times in my life!

I have experience being agitated, and tossed to and fro, and even in the times of  the worst turbulence, I felt like I should get off of this flight, especially, when I knew my flight was about to crash. But, He reminded me HE Pilots Me! Then He gave specific instructions to me.

He spoke His Word. I heard Him clearly. Recognizing my Fathers voice, I heard Him say, with His still small voice, He gently whispered to me and said, "I HAVE YOU, SIT BACK NOW, AND DO NOT BE AFRAID. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM YOUR GOD. I AM THE AT CONTROL PANEL. FEAR NOT, FOR I AM WITH YOU."

I followed His instruction. I gathered and composed myself. I place my seat back in the upright position. I buckled my seat belt and held on to every word he said, I trust THE Pilot. My Pilot.

I cannot tell you how many times, I have experienced His hand of protection in my life. But, I can tell you He has been and IS faithful to me. He has kept me and He will for the rest of my life.

HE is my Pilot, yes, He is the MASTER OF EVERYTHING! He is the ark of safety through every storm and He SPEAKS peace to the tempestuous winds of my life.

HE did not promise this journey, my journey would be an easy one. But, He did promise to take me to a place that He has prepared, for me, at the end of this journey. I will reach my destination, and land safely there.

Look! I see it! It is just ahead! In the distance, my home is just in sight!
With God as my PILOT, I will continue to enjoy, MY Flight.

Blessings and Much Love, DeVonne.

FAITH by DeVonne Reed

FAITH
By DeVonne Reed
5:00 am. October 16, 2015.

Good Morning!
It is a blessing to know that the Word of God says, God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. Romans 12:3.

God has distributed a "portion" to every man.
You have faith!
I have faith!
ALL of us have faith!

Are you ready to exercise yours? I am.

Are you ready for your mountain to move? He gave us instruction.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD!

Matthew 21:21-22 KJV
21. Jesus answered and said unto them, "Verily I say unto you, If ye have FAITH, and DOUBT NOT, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; IT SHALL BE DONE.
22. And ALL THINGS, whatsoever ye shall ASK in PRAYER, BELIEVING, ye shall RECEIVE."
~ JESUS

Mark 11:23-26 KJV
23. "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not DOUBT in his heart, but shall BELIEVE that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall HAVE whatsoever he saith.
24.Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, BELIEVE that ye RECEIVE them , and ye shall HAVE THEM .
25. And when ye stand praying, FORGIVE, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may FORGIVE you your trespasses.
26. But if ye do not FORGIVE, NEITHER will your Father which is in heaven FORGIVE your trespasses."
~ JESUS

No matter how big the hurdle or the size of the obstacle standing in your way today, say to yourself, I am armed and dangerous! I have FAITH! I HAVE A MUSTARD SEED, AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE IT!

2. DeVonne, IF you were to die and exit this life at this very moment, where would you spend eternity?
3. Have you repented DeVonne, and is everything under the blood of Jesus Christ?

* I love everyone of you with all of my heart. All of you, my family and my friends.

* I said this earlier today, I will say it
again, when I stand, more probable, I will be kneeling before King Jesus, seeing HIM then, face to face.
I will stand alone.
I will be in HIS PRESENCE giving an account for my own life. So will you...

* I do NOT want to hear Jesus say these words to me.
"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: DEPART from me, ye that work iniquity."

 * I DO want to hear Jesus say these words.
"Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: ENTER thou into the joy of thy LORD."

Changed And Rearranged
~ DeVonne Reed
October 12, 2015.

WORD OF GOD is AWESOME! POWERFUL AND IS SHARPER THAN A TWO EDGED SWORD!

I am grateful! HE LOVES ME enough to CHANGE, REARRANGE and order my step with HIS WORD .

Thank God, when I ALLOW HIS Word to CONFRONT, DISTURB, UNDERMINE, and OVERTHROW, EVERYTHING that I "THINK" I have "FIGURED OUT" or " BELIEVE THAT I  KNOW"  HE WILL WRECK IT, BEFORE IT WRECKS ME!
PTL!

GOD IS SO MERCIFUL AND  GOOD!

HE is definitely showing me, that HIS THOUGHTS and WAYS are NOT like your or mine at all!  HIS ARE SO MUCH HIGHER.
I am encouraged today :)
I'm going to continue on! I'm in this race to win it!
In the words of my Daddy, he would say,
"Bunny, Don't Stop Now, Keep On Keepin' On!"
My mind is made up! I am pressing on towards the prize, and one day, I will receive my reward, only to lay it down, at the feet of JESUS! HE ALONE IS WORTHY! ~ DjR

For Yours And Mine ~ DeVonne Reed

From the depths of D's Heart <3
October 10, 2015. 4:44 am.

If you doubt the LOVE OF GOD, or you doubt the LOVE that GOD HAS FOR YOU, then... Picture and ponder this:

"When Jesus was on that old cross, on that hill so far away, hanging there suspended somewhere between heaven and earth.

Even through the pain and agony, HE looked ahead in time and saw your face and mine.

Spilling His Life...
Oh, the ultimate price HE paid, for your life and mine!

HIS LOVE WAS AND STILL IS, PURELY DIVINE!

As He drew HIS last breath...He cried,
"IT IS FINISHED,"  He gave up the Ghost... He died.

Yes, that day the greatest love story ever written, was told!

God signed it, He sealed it, and He delivered it, with the blood of His own Son!

 HE traded HIS LIFE, for yours and mine!"

WORDS by DeVonne Reed

Romans 3 says,
 "Let GOD be true, but every man a liar."

John 6:63 KJV
It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth; the FLESH profiteth NOTHING: the WORDS that I speak unto you, THEY ARE SPIRIT, and THEY ARE LIFE.
 ~JESUS

MY thoughts:
Whose words are we listening to? We choose to believe one or the other.
GOD'S WORD = Spirit and Life
or
Mans word = enticing words.

* The TRUTH is not always popular and it does not always feel good to our flesh. But The TRUTH will prevail and stand in the end.

* Enticing words, and lies, are beguiling and easier to believe. Oh yes, having someone say just what you want to hear, feels good and it is very soothing to the flesh. Isn't it?
"Oh be careful little ears what you hear." Because, what we listen to and if we listen long enough we will begin to believe it!

1 Corinthians 2:1-5.
1. And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto the testimony of God.
2. For I determine not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and HIM crucified.
3. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4. And my speech and my preaching was not with ENTICING words of man's wisdom, BUT in DEMONSTRATION of the SPIRIT and of POWER.
5. That your FAITH SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN, BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD.

Colossians 2:4-9 KJV
4. And this I say, lest any man should BEGUILE you with ENTICING words.
5. For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
6. As ye have therefore RECEIVED CHRIST JESUS THE LORD, SO WALK YE IN HIM:
7. ROOTED and BUILT UP IN HIM, and STABLISHED IN THE FAITH, AS YE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT, ABOUNDING THEREIN WITH THANKSGIVING.
8. BEWARE LEST ANY MAN SPOIL YOU through philosophy and VAIN DECET, after the TRADITION of men, after the RUDIMENTS of the world, and NOT AFTER CHRIST.
9. For in him dwelleth ALL the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

1 John 4:1-4 KJV
1. BELOVED believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3. And EVERY spirit that confesseth NOT that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is NOT of GOD: and this is that SPIRIT of ANTICHRIST, whereof ye have heard that it should COME; and EVEN NOW ALREADY is it IN THE World.
4. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

*IF WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD, WE  DO NOT HAVE TO BE GULLIBLE!
WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE DECEIVED!
We have been instructed to TEST EVERYTHING!

TEST IT, use the litmus test of the WORD OF GOD!

Litmus test: litmus, a coloring material that turns RED in ACID SOLUTIONS and blue in  alkaline soultions.

* BEWARE! Just because you and I may like a person, until we know their fruit, we do not have to eat of it! We are not required to swallow everything that they say! Don't fall for and trip over their baited line, they may be trying to hook you with.
Guard your heart!


Much Love, DeVonne.

RIGHT or WRONG ~ DeVonne Reed

RIGHT or WRONG ~ DeVonne Reed
September 29, 2015.
5:00 am.

THE CHOICE IS OURS!

We have many options in life.
We get to choose, what we will or will not do.

Yes, we all have made some decisions that left us standing there holding an empty bag.

The emptiness is very loud. We can hear clearly the resounding repercussions, of our choices.
The drum rolls, are like thunder, constantly echoing, repeating over and over, all of the results of our WRONG choices we have chosen.

But, to be successful in Life...

I have learned, it is all about the "TAKES." 

The good takes, accelerate us and help us to continue to move on.
The bad takes, are teachers! They help us learn to not do the same things over again.

We must, with a clear conscience make the decision, to do the RIGHT things in life.

It is in these times, while doing the right thing, I have experienced true happiness...
It feels good! It feels really good!

The choices we make, whether they be good ones or bad. They belong to us!
GOOD, WILL always outweigh the BAD!

In the long run, life is sweeter when we make good choices.

No, I do not claim to be perfect and yes at times in my life, I haven't always done the right thing.
Yes, I admit it!
Everyday, I Thank God, that I did learn from EVERY mistake that I have ever made. It was right there, I made a promise to myself, with God's help, to never do that thing again!

Don't misunderstand what I am saying here.
I DO NOT go out and sin willfully.

But, I am saying, "IF" I choose to or when I do stumble and fall, I will be quick to admit it! There is no one else to blame but me, myself and I!

You and I do NOT...
WE DO NOT have power over another person to make them do one thing! We can only whet another persons appetite, with suggestions and persuasion!
Again, the choices is ours!

What I choose, good or bad... The benefits or consequences will be mine and I will have to accept responsibility for my own actions.

I choose and I strive daily to shun the wrong and do the right!

Come on now, you know as well as I do, it is true...
Our flesh wants to have its own way and rule our lives!

Who said Doing the right thing was easy?
It is not! No, it is not always easy to do the right thing.

But, doing the RIGHT thing,  sure does feel good! I appreciate being able to lay my head down at night and sleep well, because I have a clear conscience. No pillow is softer!

And IF doing what is right...means I must stand alone, without another person there with me, then so be it... I will stand alone.

"People" are going to come and go, anyway. They will walk away from you and I.  But. That's okay too!

Because, in reality, we are not ever alone!
Jesus is with us, yes, HE will be there with you and I, all of the time!

Remember these WORDS OF TRUTH!

JESUS said," I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, UNTIL THE END!"

No, never alone!

Valley Of The Shadow Of Death ~ DeVonne Reed

Thank you, Holy Spirit of God. September 28, 2015.

HE said, I See You Right Where You Are...
IN YOUR VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH.
You Have Been In A Long Battle...You Are A Wounded Soldier, Lying There In Your Own Blood, Yes, Your Have Been Abandoned By People, They Left You Alone, Left You For Dead! But, I Was And I AM With You, Always.

I hear HIS voice...
HE SPEAKS...HE says,

"MY Child I Say, LIVE And Do Not Be Afraid, For I AM with you! You STILL Have A Little Strength, I See Your Hand Reaching Up. I Have Covered You. I Have Had MY Intercessors Standing In The Gap Making Up The Hedge.
MY WORD Is Your Shied And Your Sword.
I Have Been With You. Take MY Hand, I AM Reaching Down, Helping You, I AM Pulling You Up. You Are A Bit Shaken, But, You Are Up, Standing On Your Feet, Again! Trust ME, I WILL SUSTAIN YOU.

HE said, Look At Your Scars, Don't Be Ashamed Of Them, Don't Cover Them Up!
I AM Touching Your Scars, I AM Pouring In Oil And Wine. Breathe...Can You Smell ME? I AM The Rose of Sharon, My fragrance is Surrounding You. MY atoning Blood IS Covering You and Healing You.
There Is A Cause! There STILL Is A Balm In Gilead.

Your Scars...Are Only Reminders, That You Fought, And You Won! You Are An Overcomer....Show Your Scars To Your Enemy! Your Battle Scars, Represent Your VICTORY!

HE Said, Now, Because Of Your PAIN And Your Experience, You Can Help Someone Else. You Can Give Them The HOPE That You Have...Allow Them To See You. Then They Will Know Too, That They CAN and WILL..................... MAKE IT THROUGH THEIR VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH!"

Psalm 3:1-8. September 25, 2015.

September 25, 2015.
6:00 pm.


No matter what you are going through remember these words!

Psalm 3:1-8 KJV

1. Lord , how are they increased that trouble me! Many are they that rise up against me.

2. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

3. But thou, O Lord , art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

4. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

5. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.

6. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

7. Arise, O Lord ; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

8. Salvation belongeth unto the Lord : thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.


Tell yourself...
I cried and HE heard me.
I slept; I awaked.
The Lord Sustained me.
I will not be afraid.

Much Love,  DeVonne.

The WAY Maker ~ DeVonne Reed

The WAY Maker ~ DeVonne Reed
September 24, 2015.

GOD Will Make A Way, He Is Always Right On Time!

SITUATIONS may seem impossible, but remember this...
There they were, a multitude of people, standing at the Red Sea, with no where else to go. They were at the end of the road! They were stuck, they even thought they were doomed and about to die. Just when they thought Pharaoh and his army would subdue them, and kill them, GOD opened the water and made a WAY of escape for HIS people!

He caused them to walk on dry land, they crossed over and they were released from their wilderness experience!

The enemy may be in hot pursuit against you, today. The hounds of hell may be nipping at your heels. Don't STOP moving forward. Keep walking and Watch GOD!

HE will allow your enemies to watch you, they will see you as you walk across your Red Sea but, they will not be able to touch you! So keep walking, you are crossing over and into HIS PERFECT WILL for your life!

The water that God held back for you to cross over and escape, will be returned upon the enemy, covering and drowning them, so there will not be so much as one remaining!

YES, HE'LL DO IT AGAIN!

HE WILL HOLD BACK THE WATERS FOR YOU, TOO!
HE HAS NOT CHANGED! HE is still the same, yesterday, today and FOREVER!
TRUST HIM!
THE WAY MAKER, WILL MAKE A WAY FOR YOU!

A Million Treasures ~ DeVonne Reed

A Million Treasures ~  by DeVonne Reed
September 19, 2015.

You may be wealthy, according to the worlds standards. You may have unlimited resources. You may have an abundance of money and you may be able to purchase and acquire all that your heart desires.
You may have the best "things" that money can buy.

But, that is just what they are...THINGS!

Things cannot love you back.
Things cannot hold you when you need to just be held.
Things cannot make you well when you are ill.
Things cannot make you happy.
There are just some "things" that money cannot buy, such as:

Love, respect, common sense, peace, health, kindness, compassion, happiness, wisdom, faith, Salvation, Grace, Mercy, answered prayers, integrity, morals, class, character, family, a good friend, courage, intelligence, sleep, time, laughter, sunrise and sunset, a clear conscience, trust, and rest, etc.
 If you have one or more of these things, then you are richer than you think!

These are some of the most important things to me.
As you can clearly see this is a very limited list.
Actually, this list is only scratching the surface of things money cannot buy.

If you truly want to know the quality of your life, count your blessings. Not just the things that your money has bought. Rather think of all of the things that you have received, things that you have been given, freely and recognize them, seeing they are seasoned with grace.
Truly these possessions are priceless.
Never take a single breath for granted and don't blink...no, we are not promised tomorrow.

It's not about quantity. It is not about how much money you have or how many possessions you have, it's about who and what you have in your life that adds quality to your existence.   Invest  wisely.
"If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you'll be out of balance and in the negative. Know when to close the account."
~ Unknown

Some people have everything and they are still unhappy.
Always searching for their next noun. You know what I mean...
That special person, place or thing.
Something, yes anything that might bring them satisfaction, even if it is only for a moment in time. I have seen this happen.

In reality, they never find "it" anyway and they must continue to search.
No matter the cost. They do not consider how much pain and suffering they will face and put you through while they are trying to attain their goal.
When most of the time their treasure, their wealth, those things that are the most valuable to them, are right there, within their reach. But, they are too busy looking elsewhere to see what is right in front of them.

So remember this...
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
EVERYTHING ELSE IS SECONDARY." ~ Unknown

"It's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years that matter."
~ Abraham Lincoln

In your eyes, I may not have the best of everything, but in my heart, I am grateful, and I make the best of everything I have.

Actually, I have many blessings that money did not buy. I am rich!
I Have  A Million Treasures!

Much LOVE! DeVonne

Power Of The Tongue ~ DeVonne Reed

I wrote this September 18, 2014.
What a refresher course!
Oh! Be careful little mouth what you say!


"The Power Of The Tongue"
DeVonne Reed

Proverbs 18:21.
DEATH and LIFE are in the POWER of the tongue: and they that love it SHALL EAT THE FRUIT THEREOF.

James 3:1-18. READ IT! This whole chapter speaks of the "tongue."

Our word are creative!
Our words are powerful!
Our word are positive, or they are negative!
What we speak... is what we have!

We need to think before we speak! Beware, of the words that come out of our mouth, at some point we will experience the taste of them.
To be safe, make sure they're sweet! Because, we just may have to eat them again!

What you and I say about others, says "A LOT" about us!

If what you and I are saying, is not doing one of these three things:
1. Educating
2. Edifying
3. Encouraging

Then we do best to just be quiet!

I'm using a quote from a Disney movie, Bambi.
Thumper said it best!
"If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all".

Educate:
1. To provide esp. with formal knowledge or training.
2. To provide with information.
3. To bring to an understanding.

Edify:
1. To instruct, esp. to encourage moral or spiritual improvement.
[< Lat. aedificare, build.]

Encourage:
1. To inspire with hope, courage, or confidence.
2. To give support to; foster.
Syns: encourage, animate, cheer, embolden, hearten, inspirit.

Psalms 19:14.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Beautiful You ~ DeVonne Reed

How many can remember the slogan for Coca Cola in 1969?
The slogan was, "Its The Real Thing."
This slogan continued on into 1971- "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" (part of the "It's the real thing" campaign.)

Ok, lets get REAL! I am really talking, REAL talk! Ha!
I admit it! I am a follower of that which is REAL!
I love experiencing and having what is REAL. I love "brand transparency!"
I love REAL, GENUINE things. I do not like IMITATIONS.

I am sharing two definitions . REAL and GENUINE.

REAL:
real, existent being or occuring in fact or actuality; having verified existence, not illusionary.
ex. "Life is real! Life is earnest! " ~ Longfellow

GENUINE:
1. Genuine: not fake or counterfeit.
(see also honest, honorable, real, existent, sincere and true)
ex."A genuine Picasso."

2. Genuine: true, unfeigned not pretended; sincerely felt or expressed.
"Her interest in people was unfeigned."

3. Actual, genuine, literal, real being or reflecting the essential or genuine character of something.
"Her actual motive."


Do youmember this quote? " You get what you pay for." Well, sometimes, this is true, isn't it?

There are imitations of many things. They resemble the real thing, many are even a perfect look-a-like, almost identical! Sometimes we can barey tell the difference between the two! Right?

Imitations are not genuine, they are counterfeit, a copy with intent to deceive. A fake and a phoney, is only a copy of that which is real, representing itself with a misleading appearance. They only "appear" to be real!

These items, do not always sell for a lesser price, however, most of the time, we purchase them, believe we are getting a bargain. an unreal bargain! These items usually sell for a much lower price, because their quality is lower and they do not last as long or perform as well as the original!

Besides, we know, a genuine article or item, will cost us much more in the beginning, because, it is the "real thing". The genuine article, usually lasts longer, much longer. These items become antiques. Very valuable pieces, so valuable in fact, they are worth more, and more as it ages!
Some items are considered heirlooms, for generations, yes, a lifetime. Which is priceless!

Today, I have come to tell you something very important!
YOU matter and YOU are valuable! I encourage YOU today, learn to love YOURSELF and accept YOURSELF for who YOU are! There is only one YOU, and YOU are good at being YOU!

YOU, were fashioned and created uniquely, individually, unequalled, unparalleled by God, to be YOU!

 HE LOVES YOU!

HIS LOVE IS the love, YOU CAN TRUST!
HIS LOVE IS UNPRETENTIOUS!
HIS LOVE IS not based on PERFORMANCES!
HIS LOVE IS the appreciation of who YOU are!
YOU ARE A DIRECT REFLECTION OF HIS LOVE and WHO HE IS!

HE LOVES YOU!

YOU are not a CHEAP IMITATION!
Get off of that shelf, you are not a copy!
COME ON!
Right NOW, take YOURSELF off that clearance rack, because YOU are the ORIGINAL! YOU are not a discounted item! YOU are PRICELESS!

HE LOVES YOU!


YOU! YOU are the ONE and ONLY YOU!
YOU are the BEST at being YOU!

HE LOVES YOU!

YOU are the GENUINE ARTICLE and HE compares YOU to no one else!
HE has not changed HIS mind about YOU!

HE LOVES YOU!

HE CALLS YOU BEAUTIFUL!

HE LOVES YOU!


"BE YOURSELF, EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN." ~ Oscar Wilde

Psalm 139:14, 17. NIV
14. I will praise YOU because I am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE;
YOUR WORKS are WONDERFUL, I KNOW that full well.
17. How PRECIOUS to me are YOUR thoughts, GOD! How vast is the sum of them!

HE LOVES YOU!
So, do I!

LET GO ~ DeVonne Reed

LET GO
by DeVonne Reed
9•11•2015.

Letting go is not always easy...
But, when you do decide to "Let Go" remember as a child, when you used to make a wish on a dandelion weed.

Have you made your decision?
Now, BREATHE... take a deep breath and blow.

Blow...blooOOOoooOOOoowing...Blow...
Blow it away.
Watch it as it drifts away... There it goes... Floating off into the distance.
Just like one of those fuzzy little particles of that weed... ~ DjR <3
Letting IT Go.

Written And Read ~ DeVonne Reed

Written  And  Read
by DeVonne Reed
September, 10, 2015.

I remember our nightly routine, it consisted of reading the Bible and praying together.
No one was exempt from attending...lol.
We gathered as a unit, the whole family.

Daddy asked us to focus our attention and listen to him as he would read the story that he was instructed to read, by the Holy Spirit.

As he began to read, I listened to Daddy! He read with such passion and conviction, that I always felt like I was a part of the story.

Daddy inspired me! As he read, he would explain the WORD of GOD it came alive in me at a very early age.

I am grateful for the seed (which is the WORD of GOD) that Daddy and Mother placed within my heart.

I have received the best gift, the pearl of great price, Jesus and HE IS mine!
Yes, they instilled an inheritance that cannot be shaken or taken.
Jesus lives within me!

Even as an adult they still, encouraged me to always keep a hunger and thirst for GOD, to follow after and seek HIM and HIS Righteousness.

They also told me that I could eat this BREAD OF LIFE and I would never go hungry. I could drink this LIVING WATER and I would never thirst again.

Guess what?
I can still have as much of HIM as I want!
I NEED, I WANT and I DESIRE more, more and even more of Jesus!

My parents taught me The WORD of GOD IS the TRUTH. Yes, it was and still is the truth.

Truly, their lives were examples of their Faith in Jesus Christ. Through their love, dedication, and prayers, I have seen many miracles happen with my own eyes. Those truths, I will carry with me, always.
No one will ever convince me that these miracles did not happen, nor can anyone change my mind or cause me to believe anything different.

I knew that PRAYER WORKED then, even as a small child. I definitely know Prayer STILL Works today! Thank you JESUS!

Daddy and Momma, Thank you for allowing me to read your books! You made your dash count!
Thank you for giving me your LOVE, and your time.

You were written...and I read.  <3

Much love, DeVonne.

The Blame Game by DeVonne Reed

The Blame Game
By: DeVonne Reed
8/31/2015.

Isn't it true, that people do just what they want to do?!

Whether it is right or whether it is wrong!
There are choices to be made.
It is all good when the right choice is made.
But, let that same person make a WRONG choice...JESUS! Lord have mercy!

They will blame their cat, their dog, their goldfish, and if you are close enough to them they will blame you, too! They will try to pin the blame anyone, except themselves. When in fact no one helped them make their decision to do what they do!

Does anyone have a mirror? Hand it to them! Tell them to take a long look in it, at themselves! There it is! There is the problem! There is your problem!
It is YOU!

We all know this is true, also! "To every action there is a reaction!"

Every choice that is made, it will either serve you with good benefits or the consequences will prove your character and the price you will have to pay will be horrific! In the end, it will end up costing you more than you wanted to pay.

Remember, you and I do not possess enough power over others, we cannot make another person do one thing! Unless you are a master manipulator, then possibly you could make someone do something!
 But, most people choose their own behavior.

If folks, husbands, wives, parents, best friends, sisters, brothers, if we would would stop taking responsibility for these people and their behavior and we would stop enabling them and finally call them out, and hold them responsible for their own actions, then possibly things could change!

No, Things Would Change!

Choose wisely!

Choosing to sow good seed and doing the right thing, in the first place, is always good! You will reap that which is good!

THERE IS NEVER A WRONG TIME TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT!

In doing the right thing, it will cause you to prosper, and there will be peace in your life!

If you don't like all of the bad things you are reaping, STOP sowing your evil seeds.

For goodness sake, stop playing the part of being the victim, especially when you are the one who has caused it! You do it to yourself, all by yourself!

Stop playing the blame game!
Quit blaming people!
Quit blaming the devil!
Quit blaming GOD!

DOORS ~ DeVonne Reed

DOORS ~ DeVonne Reed
August 27, 2015. 6:00 am.

In my life, many times approaching the "right door" that GOD has opened is a bit of a challenge for me. Only because, I am a creature of habit.
Isn't it true, we all love what is familiar and comfortable?

At times, even after praying and believing for Gods perfect will to be done in my life, sometimes, I still question and I have found myself standing in the hallway, halting, in a valley of decision.

You know, you do it too! LOL :)

Well today, GOD has a new door for me!
I am placing a seal over ALL of the closed doors in my life.
I am making a sign that says, "CLOSED! NO ACCESS GRANTED!"

I am standing at the threshold of the new door that has my name written on it.
Not only is it opened! LOOK! GOD has taken it off the hinges just for me!

My Memoir of My Momma's Last Night On Earth ~ DeVonne Reed

My Memoir of My Mommas Last Night On Earth ~ DeVonne Reed
8/19/2015.

Three months ago, I was at the hospital along with some of my family members, we were there with my momma, the most beautiful girl in the world.
I knew her time was drawing near, but little did I know she would make her transition on May 19, 2015 at 8:00 am.

May 18, 2015
I kissed Momma and I told her, "I love you the most, the longest, always and forever, and momma you have had a lot of visitors today!"
If you know my momma, she dislikes being alone, very much! She would not have it any other way, but to have her room filled with company!
Her house is always a gathering place for her family and friends. She lives and loves to be surrounded by people.
Even though today she is not responding to anyone, I believe she still knows all of us are here with her!

Today marks the eighth day I have stayed with my momma. I am tired. But, I cannot leave her, because I see the changes that have taken place in her. I feel as though she will not be with us much longer.

3:00 pm.
I am going to take a nap, so I will be able to sit with momma and stay awake tonight.

7:00 pm. Shift changed. I am awake, now. How refreshing, only four hours of sleep and I feel rested. Thank you Jesus!
(Lord, how did I sleep through all of the noise...lol)

10:00 pm. There are still so many people in her room. Some are sitting on the furniture, some are even on the floor and some are standing.

11:00 - 11:30. Most everyone has left for the night, except the few of us that decided to stay with momma. We are still sitting around and talking quietly. Everyone is tired, and winding down now. They all decide they are going to lay down to try to get some rest.

Since I took my nap earlier,
I am sitting in the chair next to mommas bedside.
All of the sudden everyone is sleeping, it becomes quiet.
There is no noise, except for the television, it is on and playing soft music.

The minutes are ticking away... I am crying. I am talking, singing and praying for momma.
Before I know it time has slipped upon 2:00 am.

Exactly 2:29 am The Holy Spirit had a dear friend of mine send a message to me. HE Spoke and told me to prepare my heart because mommas time here on earth was almost over. All I can do now is cry some more. I want pray that God will raise momma up. But in my heart I know that I must accept GODS WILL.
To be continued...

Much Love, DeVonne

The Night Is Far Spent ~ DeVonne Reed

"The Night Is Far Spent"
~ DeVonne Reed
August 9, 2015.

Awakened very early again this morning. Sitting here in the presence of the Lord. Doing what I love to do the best, reading, and studying GODS WORD.

In the stillness of the moment, HE began to speak. In the silence I am listening.

Remember SILENT and LISTEN are spelled with the same letters.

This is what HE spoke and told me,

"For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."

He instructed me to read the entire chapter of Matthew 23. ALL 39 verses.
(Emphasizing bold lettering is mine.)
My, my, my!

What a chapter indeed! RED LETTERS! JESUS SPEAKING.

Matthew 23:1-7.
1. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to HIS disciples:

2. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat.

3. So you must OBEY them and do everything they tell you. But DO NOT do that they do, FOR THEY DO NOT PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH.

4. They TIE UP HEAVY LOADS and put them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are NOT WILLING to lift a finger to move them.

5. EVERYTHING they do is done for men to SEE: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long;

6. They LOVE the place of honor at banquets and the most IMPORTANT seats in the synagogues;

7. They LOVE to be greeted in the
marketplaces and to have men CALL them "Rabbi."

JESUS! The more I read, the more I see. This is exactly what is WRONG in the church, today!

It is time to shake ourselves! Wake out of sleep!

I only shared seven verses! If you want to see why the church is in the fix it is in, go read the rest of the chapter for yourself.

Very powerful WORDS OF WARNING. JESUS SAID, "WOE TO YOU."

YOU meaning: preachers, teachers, hypocrites, teachers of the law, blind fools, blind men, you snakes, brood of vipers, etc. Remember this is not just a man speaking here this is JESUS calling these folks out.

Verse 23.
"WOE" to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices-- mint, dill, and cummin. But you have neglected the MORE IMPORTANT MATTERS of the law--
JUSTICE, MERCY, and FAITHFULNESS. You should have PRACTICED the latter, WITHOUT NEGLECTING THE FORMER.

JESUS have mercy!

HE spoke:
Matthew 7:15.
Beware of FALSE PROPHETS, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

JESUS WARNED about these false prophets, they may even do signs and wonders so great... that IF IT WERE POSSIBLE... THEY  WOULD BE ABLE TO DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT.

* If you do not read the WORD for yourself how do you know if what you are being told is the truth?

* My Daddy would always say to me, "Bunny, don't you ever take anyone's word over the WORD of GOD! READ IT FOR YOURSELF, and that way, you will know it,  and you will be assured and you will not be deceived."
Thank you Daddy for your love, and your deep wisdom! I am happy, I sat at your table to learn!

Holy Spirit instructed me to speak:

"To OBEY is better than sacrifice. It is time to shake yourselves and wake out of sleep, for the night is far spent cast off your darkness and walk in the LIGHT.
Seek ME while I may be found, CALL ON ME, and I WILL HELP YOU. FORSAKE doing THINGS your own way, for there is a way that seems right to you, BUT, Seek MY WAY. Seek ME, SEARCH OUT the old paths, and walk in them. Seek MY face, Read MY WORD for MY THOUGHTS are not your thoughts, neither are your ways MY WAYS, saith the LORD. Let no man DECEIVE you with vain words for because of these things COMETH the WRATH of GOD upon the children of DISOBEDIENCE.
LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU by any means: for that day shall not come, except there  come a great falling away first. Be NOT SHAKEN in your MIND, or TROUBLED in your SPIRIT, for THE DAY of CHRIST IS AT HAND."

Much Love, DeVonne.

DELIGHTED ~ DeVonne Reed

Delighted In The LORD
~ DeVonne Reed
8/3/2015. 4:00 am.


Thank YOU Holy Spirit, for touching me, nudging me, and gently speaking to me early this morning. 
I love YOUR WORDS, "Arise and spend a little time with ME."  
My response was, "I am DELIGHTED!"
I love YOU JESUS! <3 I LOVE YOUR NAME! <3 I LOVE YOUR PRESENCE! <3

Psalm 37:4-9 KJV
4. DELIGHT thyself also in the LORD ; and HE SHALL GIVE thee the DESIRES of thine HEART. 

5. COMMIT thy WAY unto the LORD ; TRUST also in HIM; and HE SHALL BRING IT TO PASS. 

6. And HE SHALL BRING FORTH thy righteousness as the LIGHT, and thy judgment as the NOONDAY. 

7. REST in the LORD , and WAIT patiently for HIM: FRET not thyself because of him who prospereth in his WAY, because of the man who bringeth WICKED DEVICES to pass. 

8. CEASE from anger, and FORSAKE wrath: FRET NOT thyself in ANY WISE TO DO EVIL.

9. For EVILDOERS SHALL be CUT OFF: but those that WAIT UPON THE LORD , they SHALL INHERIT the earth.

I am IN HIM! 
I am DELIGHTING, COMMITTING, TRUSTING, RESTING, WAITING, NOT FRETTING, CEASING, FORSAKING, NOT EVEN THINKING AN EVIL THOUGHT! 

Thank YOU JESUS!
I have an INHERITANCE that is out of this world!

Treasured Memories by DeVonne Reed

Treasured Memories
by DeVonne Reed

Momma and Daddy, I miss you. I value the special bond that we shared, all of my life. I treasure each and every moment of time that we spent together.
Even though I have many, many memories of you...sometimes it seems they are all too few..
Truly every one of them are precious indeed, to me!

If you are still blessed to have your parents, go spend time with them, take your children to see them...allow your children to sit and listen and learn from their grandparents, they have so much wisdom to give.
Ask your parents to tell your children about themselves and of their experiences and their life stories. Enjoy your family while you still can.
Hug them, kiss them, tell them that you love them, send them a card, visit them, call them, buy them flowers, take them out to dinner, do something for them, just because you want to! I promise, you won't regret it!

So, I guess, what I am really trying to say in a nutshell is this, don't take anything for granted...don't blink!
You just might miss something very special!

Make memories in your lifetime, for surely one day these wonderful, special people, these people that you call your mom and dad, they will pass on and your memories..yes, your memories will be the only treasure that you have left of them.

Exodus 20:12. KJV.
12. HONOUR thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy GOD giveth thee.

Time is a gift that you give!
Here's to making LIFE count!

Much LOVE, DeVonne.

To Tell The TRUTH ~ DeVonne Reed

To Tell The TRUTH ~ DeVonne Reed
February 2013

Why do we choose to settle for less? When all of the time we have been given the very best! ~DJR~

JOHN 8:32
And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall "make" you free.

I'm reminded of an old television program, "To Tell The Truth."
There were three people, but only one of them was the "real person" the one who walked in the truth, and knowledge of themself. Knowing the facts and the full story, the others had to "make up" and "pretend" to know the truth.

This thought hit me, you can't have a fake, without having an original! There must be an original, otherwise, you cannot make a copy of it!
There will be no counterfeit, without the original.

A lot of people are making a "look-a-like" of the gospel of Jesus Christ!
They "look" the part, even "act" the part.

Matthew 15:8 says, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth ME with their lips, but their HEART IS FAR FROM ME. ~Jesus


REMEMBER THIS: verse 11 Jesus is still speaking. (paraphrased)
It is NOT what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but IT IS WHAT COMES OUT of his mouth that defiles him.

Jeremiah 50:6-7.
6. My people hath been lost sheep their "shepherds" have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains they have gone from mountain to hill, they have "forgotten their RESTINGPLACE."
7.a) All that have found them "devoured" them:

Matthew 7:15, 20.
15. BEWARE of "false" prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but "inwardly" they are ravening wolves.
* A great "disguise," wouldn't you agree? Gentle but devouring!
20. Wherefore by their fruit ye shall KNOW them.

2 Tim. 3:5-9.
5. Having a "FORM" of Godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6. For of this sort are they which "creep" into houses, and "lead captive" silly women laden with sins, "led away" with divers lusts, (notice there is a comma here)
7. "Ever learning" and "never able" to come to the knowledge of the truth
8.  Now as Jannes and Jambres "withstood" Moses, SO DO THESE also RESIST the truth: men of corrupt minds, REPROBATE concerning THE FAITH.
9. But they shall "proceed no further": for "their folly" SHALL be MANIFEST unto ALL men as theirs also was.

So at the end of of the TV, program the host would say, "will the real person please stand up?"

My first question is, aren't you tired of the lies that people tell?
My next question is, when will the PEOPLE of GOD, STAND UP AND JUST TELL THE TRUTH?!

I love and want only the TRUTH!

Jn.14:6
Jesus saith unto him, "I AM the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE."

Much Love, DeVonne.

Symbol of Prestige ~ DeVonne Reed

Symbol Of Prestige ~ DeVonne Reed
July 30, 2015.

Studying this morning. This thought became a question in my spirit and in my mind.

 "What is it that people want more than anything?"

The answer I heard was this:

"They desire to be in some type of leadership position and or have their name associated with prestigious titles."

* Prestigious:
1. esteemed, honored, having an illustrious reputation; respected.

2. Exerting influence by reason of high status or prestige.

* Prestige:
1. a high standing achieved through success or influence or wealth etc.

I only know of ONE, that deserves this kind of prestige, and this type of our highest recognition!
HIS name is JESUS!
HIS SYMBOL WAS, The CROSS!
The power of the cross was HIS LOVE.
It was not the nails that held HIM there, it was HIS LOVE!

JESUS was a leader...yet, HE WAS NOT esteemed, honored, nor respected.
Especially, in HIS hometown. HE could not do many miracles there, because of their unbelief.

However, HE did have a reputation.
He took upon HIMSELF the form of a servant, in the likeness of men: fashioned as a man, HE humbled HIMSELF, HE was obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Crowds, followed HIM. Multitudes of people; disciples, common folks, sinners, those that were possessed, and the religious crowd. These people, in close proximity with HIM. They saw and heard Him, they heard Salvation speaking, and still reject HIM, even after HE manifested to them who HE WAS.
People labeled HIM. Some labeled HIM a TROUBLEMAKER!
Yes, HE was despised, and rejected, a man of many sorrows.

People heard about HIM, some knew of HIM, some saw HIM, people walked and talked with HIM, some people knew HIM, some people believed Him, and still some rejected HIM.

Isn't it true? We still see these same scenarios and behavior in our world today.

The cross of Calvary, stood high upon Golgotha's Hill.

This was place where JESUS illustrated GODS LOVE! HE achieved and accomplished HIS earthly mission. HE endured, and fulfilled the Fathers WILL. Greater Love hath NO MAN than this!
HE WAS SUCCESSFUL!

Have you accepted this Great LOVE?
IF so...HIS influence is shown to this lost and dying world, through US, the believers...the ones who are living a Christ-like life.

2 Corinthians 4:3 KJV.
3. BUT IF our GOSPEL be hid it is hid to them that are lost

IS HE being represented well?
Can the world see JESUS, the HOPE OF GLORY living inside of us?

2 Corinthians 8:9. KJV.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though HE was rich, yet for your sakes HE became poor, that you through HIS poverty might be RICH.

2 Corinthians 4:5-7. KJV
5. For we preach not OURSELVES, but Christ Jesus the LORD; and ourselves your SERVANTS for Jesus' sake.

6. For GOD, who commanded the LIGHT to shine out of darkness, hath shines in our HEARTS, to give the LIGHT of the knowledge of the GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS CHRIST.

7. BUT WE HAVE THIS TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS, THAT THE EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD AND NOT OF US.

HE gave to us HIS TREASURE, HIS WEALTH. If you belong to HIM, then you are rich!

SHARE THE WEALTH!
SHARE JESUS!

By the world's standards, I am not rich nor am I wealthy.
But I am rich, because I have JESUS! HE IS MY ALL AND ALL. I have HIM, I have everything I NEED!

I will say it like Peter, silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: in the name that is above every name Jesus Christ.

I GIVE YOU JESUS!

Don't You BELIEVE Their LIES ~ DeVonne Reed

Don't You Believe Their Lies ~ DeVonne Reed

Awakened at 5:00 am.
Holy Spirit spoke these words to me.

He said, "Guard you mind! Guard your heart!"

Titus 1:15-16.
15. Unto the pure ALL THINGS are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is NOTHING pure; but even their mind and coscience is defiled.
16. They PROFESS that they know GOD; but in works they DENY HIM, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every work reprobate.

Proverbs 4:23.
Keep thy HEART with ALL DILIGENCE; for out of it are the issues of life.

2 Timothy 3:13.
But evil men and SEDUCERS SHALL wax WORSE and WORSE, DECEIVING, and BEING DECEIVED.

MY THOUGHTS for today. DeVonne Reed ~ D's Heart <3

"Some people are masters of deception, being controlled by the spirit of PYTHO, a lying spirit.
They tell their multifaceted lies and they are so good at it!

Spiritually speaking, here is the definition of multifaceted.
Multifaceted:
mul•ti•fac•et•ed
Having many facets. " the play of light on the surface"

Notice...light on the surface!

They have convinced themselves, and are able to convince others that they are not lying. Convincing themselves and others that they are telling the truth!
I have seen that most people would rather LOVE and BELIEVE A LIE, more than they love and believe the TRUTH." 7/28/2015.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 KJV
11. And for this cause GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE:
12. That they all might be DAMNED WHO BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, but had PLEASURE in UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

Here is the remedy!

Philippians 4:7.
And THE PEACE OF GOD, which PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, SHALL KEEP your HEARTS and MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.

Much Love, DeVonne.

JESUS...YOUR NAME ~ DeVonne Reed

JESUS...YOUR NAME ~ DeVonne Reed
July 26, 2015.

JESUS. What a lovely name, the name of Jesus!

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...
There's just something about HIS name!

Something so sweet, HE is indescribably delicious...oh taste and see that the LORD is GOOD!

Something so powerful, death couldn't hold HIM! Demons  recognize and know Him!
NO other name whereby men can be saved...what can wash away my sins NOTHING but the BLOOD of Jesus.

Something so matchless, there's no other god like HIM. You can go to the graves of other gods, their remains are still there. But, Jesus is ALIVE! HE is the RESURRECTION and the LIFE! He died, HE was buried, but thank God, on the third day the stone was rolled away, HE WALKED OUT OF THAT BORROWED TOMB. I tell you HE'S ALIVE!

HE IS Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace!
Something so majestic, HE IS THE KING of KINGS.

Something so full of LOVE, HE'S so full of mercy and grace. He loves you and I so much. With so much love, in fact, HE was willing to take away our sins, bearing each and everyone of them, HE carried the sins of the whole world to an old rugged cross. Laying down HIS life willingly, taking our place. HE died that we may live.

NO GREATER LOVE THAN THIS!

Be assured today, that no matter what the situation is or how big or how bad the circumstances are, remember, HE PROMISED, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE US.
 He'll go with us all the way.

I promise you. I challenge you, "IF" you need "SOMETHING" TODAY, HE'LL BE THAT "SOMETHING" THAT YOU NEED!
"IF" you'll just say Jesus, come on say HIS name, Jesus!
Jesus...come on lets call on HIM! JESUS! At the name of Jesus everything will change!
EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE!
Yes, it will!

JESUS, oh at the mention of HIS NAME.

HIS name shall be called Jesus, for HE shall save HIS people from their sins.
Jesus is the SAME always! The same yesterday, today and forever!

Jesus... JESUS... JESUS, it is the sweetest name I know!

Truly, there IS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME!

JESUS..YOUR NAME!

HE Has My Back ~ DeVonne Reed

HE Has My Back ~ DeVonne Reed
July 22, 2015.

I was awakened very early this morning...troubled in my spirit.
Holy Spirit took me to the WORD of GOD.
Reading and re-reading, Proverbs chapter 6 and  Luke chapter 6.

Now, I understand completely.

THANK YOU JESUS FOR YOUR WORD and YOUR PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT!
THANK YOU FOR PLACING YOUR SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT, WITHIN ME.
YOU are so GOOD! THANK YOU LORD, for confirming what YOU spoke into my spirit, months ago...YOU revealed and showed me...this was coming.

This morning YOU brought it back to my remembrance.
Thank you for YOUR WARNING! Thank YOU for preparing my by heart.
All I can do is smile, and give YOU PRAISE! I shall not be moved!
Oh Glory to GOD, confirmation...I must be doing something right...LOL!


...For a bird of the air shall CARRY THE VOICE and that which hath wings SHALL TELL THE MATTER.


THIS is what I saw in a vivid vision, through the Holy Spirit.

"You have talked about me, even slandered me...all behind my back...stabbing me in my back, not with a knife, but with a little weapon, it never rests in your mouth. With your tongue, and your words..trying to kill me...
Then you stand there...acting like you are the victim...as though you are the one that is bleeding."

Jesus. Jesus. Jesus! But GOD...
Only by YOUR SPIRIT, LORD.
Don't act surprised...Rest assured! GOD KNOWS...HE SEES YOU... HE HEARS YOU...

GOD HAS ME IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND, I am RESTING here. Standing firmly on the WORD of GOD, I am  totally relying on JESUS!

Matthew 5:11-12.
11. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you "FALSELY", for my name sake.
12. "REJOICE", and be "EXCEEDING GLAD": for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Attitude is only 10% of what happens...90% is how I take it and how I react to it!
HE HAS MY BACK!

KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ~ DeVonne Reed

KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD
~ DeVonne Reed
July 21, 2015.

Jesus...there are many people needing prayer today.

Saints of GOD,
INTERCESSORS PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!

These precious souls are under attack of the devil, his evil and demonic forces.

I have heard these words from several people;
I am.... desperate, disappointed, sleepless, broken hearted, depressed, etc...
I feel... suicidal tendencies, excessive mourning, grief, hopeless, and such a heaviness, and the list goes on and on.

I am declaring and proclaiming the Word of God over each person right now in the name of Jesus!

1Peter 5:7-8. KJV.
7. Casting all your CARE upon HIM; for HE CARETH for YOU.
8. Be sober, be vigilant; because your ADVERSARY the devil, AS A ROARING LION, WALKETH about, SEEKING whom he may DEVOUR.

The devil, is a THIEF!

John 10:10. KJV. JESUS SPEAKING:
10. The THIEF cometh not, BUT FOR TO STEAL, and to KILL and to DESTROY:
I AM come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have IT (LIFE) MORE ABUNDANTLY.
 
Remember, the devil is a murderer, he has been since the beginning, there is NO TRUTH in him. When he SPEAKS, he SPEAKS A LIE. He IS A LIAR and THE FATHER OF IT.

Binding the lying spirit and loosing the TRUTH.

Those who are under attack of the evil one, especially these two forces in particular..."spirit of bondage" and the "spirit of heaviness."

Those who are  feeling that there is no hope, remember, GOD SO LOVED YOU, YES YOU! HE LOVED YOU SO MUCH THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!  FOR WHOSOEVER WILL, call on HIM and BELIEVE IN HIM you shall be saved.
Only BELIEVE...JESUS IS OUR HOPE!

HE has given to us, the believers, the keys to the kingdom!

Matthew 16:19. KJV. JESUS SPEAKING:
19. And I will give unto thee the KEYS (AUTHORITY) of the kingdom of heaven: and WHATSOEVER thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and WHATSOEVER thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Matthew 18:18-20. KJV. JESUS SPEAKING:
18. Verily I say unto you,
WHATSOEVER ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and WHATSOEVER ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19. AGAIN I SAY unto you, That IF TWO of you AGREE on earth as TOUCHING ANYTHING that they shall ask, IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.
20. For where two or three are gathered together in MY NAME, there AM I IN THE MIDST OF THEM.

I stand in the power and the authority that is in the matchless name of Jesus in the blood that HE shed, and in the prayer of agreement, right now with those that are in despair and don't know what to do, Lord, YOU see and YOU know each person that has asked for prayer, they have asked for YOUR help.
Today we are coming to YOU, we are Asking. We are Seeking. We are Knocking.
You said,
"IF" we ask we shall receive!
"IF" we seek we shall find!
"IF" we knock it shall be opened!

Thank You LORD, for coming to the rescue!

In Jesus name, I stand in agreement, binding the SPIRIT OF BONDAGE, is bound in the name of Jesus.
Loosing The Comforter which is the Holy Spirit, Liberty, the Spirit of Life and the SPIRIT OF ADOPTION in the name of Jesus. Crying Abba Father.

Send YOUR WORD Father, minister to their hearts and their minds.
Thank YOU JESUS. Comfort them in Jesus name.

Isaiah 61:1-3.
1. The Spirit of the LORD GOD is upon me; because HE hath ANOINTED me to preach GOOD TIDINGS unto the MEEK; HE hath sent me to BIND UP the BROKENHEARTED, to PROCLAIM LIBERTY to the CAPTIVES, and the OPENING of the PRISON to them that are BOUND;
2. To PROCLAIM the ACCEPTABLE YEAR of the LORD,  and the DAY of VENGEANCE of our GOD; to COMFORT ALL THAT MOURN;
3. To APPOINT unto them that MOURN in Zion, to give unto them
BEAUTY for ASHES,
the OIL OF JOY for MOURNING,
the GARMENT OF PRAISE for the Spirit of HEAVINESS;
that they might be called TREES of RIGHTEOUSNESS, the PLANTING OF THE LORD,
THAT HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED.

BINDING the SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS, in the name of Jesus.
LOOSING the COMFORTER which is the HOLY SPIRIT. Father, thank YOU for trading ashes for beauty,  give the oil of joy for mourning, give the GARMENT of PRAISE, to put on, in EXCHANGE, for the SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS, in Jesus name. Amen.

John 14:1, 6, 27. KJV. JESUS SPEAKING:
1. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED: YE BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME.
6. JESUS SAITH unto him, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE: no man cometh unto the FATHER,  but by ME.
27. PEACE I leave with you, MY PEACE I GIVE unto you: not as the word giveth, give I unto you. LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.

John 8:32. KJV.
32. And ye shall KNOW the TRUTH, and the TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE.
36. "IF" THE SON therefore shall make YOU FREE, ye shall be FREE INDEED.

There is POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS, PRAYING AND BELIEVING.
THANKING YOU LORD, TO BREAK EVERY CHAIN. THANK YOU LORD FOR COMPLETE FREEDOM! SPEAKING THE WORD OF THE LORD, IN JESUS NAME.

HE STILL SPEAKS ~ DeVonne Reed

HE Still SPEAKS DeVonne Reed
July 16, 2015.

Reading Luke 16:22-31.
JESUS HIMSELF SPEAKING RED LETTER WORDS.
Verse 31.
"And HE SAID, unto him, if they will not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be PERSUADED, though one rose from the dead."

JESUS arose from the dead and people are still rejecting HIM and HIS WORD!

HE STILL SPEAKS, through HIS prophets  and HIS people. If you are speaking the truth and being rejected remember this, they aren't rejecting you, individually, they are rejecting the Holy Spirit of GOD that is speaking through you!

1 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning  and never able to come to the knowledge of the TRUTH.

GOD always warns HIS people!

Regardless of people, and their behavior, GOD ALWAYS GIVES and SENDS OUT WARNINGS, before hand. Because of HIS LOVE.

People are stiffnecked and uncircumcised in their hearts, refusing and rebelling against the truths of WORD OF GOD.

We are living in the last days, a time in history that we have never seen, the only way any one of us will make, it is to be washed in the blood of Jesus!

We must take up and put on the whole armor of GOD, we must know and speak THE WORD...being equipped, and armed. The WORD IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE OUR  DEFENSE.

2 Corinthians 10:4.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty THROUGH GOD to the pulling down of strongholds.

We must learn also, to be still and listen...listen and hear HIS VOICE, and to obey HIM! Move when HE says move. Stand still when HE says stand still. HE will protect those who have placed their TRUST in HIM.

HE WILL, reveal and expose the enemy, to those who are asking for HIS wisdom, knowledge, guidance and direction. Yes, HE will, and then HE WILL provide our protection!

Exodus 13:21-22. KJV
21. And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
22. HE took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.

#cloud
#fire

I'm singing my mommas song this morning!
C'mon, JESUS BE A FENCE ALL AROUND ME Every, Every, Every EVERYDAY!

HE Still SPEAKS!
Are We Listening?

PSALM 19

Psalms 19:1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

Psalms 19:2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.

Psalms 19:3 There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;

Psalms 19:4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,

Psalms 19:5 which comes forth like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and like a strong man runs its course with joy.

Psalms 19:6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and there is nothing hid from its heat.

Psalms 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;

Psalms 19:8 the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;

Psalms 19:9 the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever; the ordinances of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether.

Psalms 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.

Psalms 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Psalms 19:12 But who can discern his errors? Clear thou me from hidden faults.

Psalms 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.

Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

LOVE GOD'S WAY ~ DeVonne Reed

LOVE GOD'S WAY ~ DeVonne Reed
7/17/2015.

LORD hear my hearts cry...
LORD, YOU alone are the Righteous Judge.
As I kneel before YOU, in YOUR holy presence,
if I am found guilty of anything...
Let me be found guilty, of LOVE in the first degree. ~  DjR

1 John 4:7-8, 11. KJV
7. Beloved, let us LOVE one another: for LOVE is of GOD; and every one that LOVETH GOD is born of GOD, and knoweth GOD.

8. He that LOVETH not knoweth not GOD; FOR GOD IS LOVE.

11. Beloved, if GOD so LOVED us, we ought also to LOVE one another.

Romans 13:10. KJV
10. LOVE worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore LOVE is the fulfilling of the law.

1 Corinthians 13:1-7. KJV
1. Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels, and have not charity, (LOVE) I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.

2. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all  faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, (LOVE) I am nothing.

3. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, (LOVE) it profiteth me nothing.

4. Charity (LOVE) suffereth long, and is kind; charity (LOVE) envieth not; charity (LOVE) vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the TRUTH;

7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

1 John 4:20-21. KJV
20. IF a man say, I LOVE GOD, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that LOVETH not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he LOVE GOD whom he hath not seen?

21. And this commandment have we from HIM, That he who LOVETH GOD LOVE his brother also.

<3 <3 <3 What the world needs NOW, is LOVE SWEET LOVE! <3 <3 <3
It's the only thing there's just too little of...No, not just for some,
but for everyone.

JESUS.
What a lovely name, the name of JESUS!

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...There's just something about HIS name!

Something so sweet, HE is indescribably delicious...oh taste and see that the LORD is GOOD!

Something so powerful, death couldn't hold HIM! Demons recognize and know Him!

JESUS, NO other name, but the name of JESUS, whereby men can be saved...what can wash away my sins NOTHING but the BLOOD of JESUS.

Something so matchless, there's no other god like HIM. You can go to the graves of other gods, their remains are still there. But, JESUS is ALIVE! HE is the RESURRECTION and the LIFE! He died, HE was buried, but thank God, on the third day the stone was rolled away, HE WALKED OUT OF THAT BORROWED TOMB. The tomb is empty!  I tell you HE'S ALIVE!

HE IS Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace!
Something so majestic, HE IS THE KING of KINGS.

The name of JESUS is full of LOVE, HE is full of mercy and grace.

He loves you and I so much. With so much love, in fact, HE was willing to take away our sins, bearing each and everyone of them, HE carried the sins of the whole world to an old rugged cross. Laying down HIS life willingly, taking our place. HE died that we may live. NO GREATER LOVE THAN THIS...That this man JESUS, laid down HIS LIFE for you and I!
HE calls us friend!

Be assured today, that no matter what the situation is, no matter how big or how bad your circumstances are, JESUS is the waymaker! Remember, HE PROMISED, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE US.
 He'll go with us all the way! HE made us a promise, and HIS WORD IS HIS BOND! HE WILL KEEP IT!

I challenge you, "IF" you need "SOMETHING" TODAY, JESUS will  BE THAT "SOMETHING" THAT YOU NEED!
Just whisper HIS name...JESUS...JESUS...JESUS.
Say HIS name, JESUS!
JESUS..come on lets call on HIM! JESUS!
When we call on JESUS, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

At the name of Jesus everything will change!
EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE!
Yes, it will!
JESUS, just the mention of HIS NAME.

HIS name shall be called JESUS, for HE shall save HIS people from their sins.

JESUS is the SAME always! The same yesterday, today and forever!

JESUS... JESUS... JESUS, sweetest name I know, fills my every longing!
Keeps me singing as I go!

Truly, there IS SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME!

JESUS!

The Writing On The Ground ~ DeVonne Reed

The Writing On The Ground
DeVonne Reed
July 14, 2015.

We can learn of Jesus through the inspired gospel writers. I'm thankful, for their descriptions of HIM, and through their writings we have glimpses of His personal life.
Even though, we do not have or know of any books that were personally written by Jesus, I still believe every word that has been recorded or spoken about Him.

However, I am reminded of one recorded writing that Jesus did write.

John 8:6-9.
6. This they said, tempting Him, that they might have to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down, and with His finger WROTE ON THE GROUND, as though He heard them not.
7. So when they continued asking Him, He lifted up Himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8. And AGAIN He stooped down, and WROTE ON THE GROUND.
9. And they which HEARD IT, being CONVICTED by THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

His writing, was on the ground, the content of His words are unknown, but they had to be very powerful!
Powerful indeed! Powerful enough that these people, HEARD IT!!!

My thought and my question always has been this, "How can you hear something that was written on the ground?"

This takes me back to, "In The Beginning."

Genesis 2:7.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the GROUND, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

I can speak for myself!
I still remember the day, thank you Jesus!

Yes, I remember the day He wrote on this ground! I remember the moment, HE breathed HIS breath, The Breath of LIFE into me.

Just like the woman,  who was brought to Jesus, HE spoke these same words over me.

Jesus said, "Woman, where are those, thine accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?"
She said, "NO MAN, LORD."
Jesus said, "neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more."

At that moment the very instant, my spiritman was made alive, and now, I am a living soul.

When HE said, "BREATHE," I had to LIVE!

Yes, He wrote the greatest LOVE story with HIS own blood...it is written in red, and it is forever etched into the soil of my heart!

I tell you truly, I am in love with the lover of my soul!
Ahhhh yes, never a man spake like this MAN JESUS!

I heard, the Writing On The Ground!

Much Love, DeVonne.

If I Could Save Time ~ DeVonne Reed

July 13, 2015.

Thinking of my momma today, just like every other day! <3

I took a three day beach trip with my best friend, in April 2015. Easter weekend. While I was there, sitting on the beach, I was reminded of this song,
"Time In A Bottle" by Jim Croce (1973.)

I finished drinking my water and I decided to filled my empty water bottle with some sand and a few small seashells, for my momma.
I brought it back to give it to her, while she was in recovery at the rehabilation center. I had witten these words on one side of it, so momma could see them.
"If I Could Save Time In A Bottle."

After I gave it to momma, we had a long conversation. :) I asked Momma, do you remember that old song? She answered, "yes I remember that song." We talked about, saving time in a bottle! It was a very special conversation, indeed!

I played the song for her on YouTube. As it finished playing, I looked over at her and she was smiling.
I said, "Oh momma, if only...if only...if only I could...If only, I Could Save Time In A Bottle, I would. "

We shared some tears, a few hugs, and kisses :) momma told me, she loved me, in her own special way, that she always did, with me.
I said to her, "momma, you are and always will be the most beautiful girl in the world, and I LOVE you, with all of my heart, the most, the longest, always and forever...I LOVE you even more than every grain of sand, in this bottle!"

I miss you! Until we meet again!

By the way...I did save time in a bottle!
Much Love, DeVonne.
