Time for a change….

 

We’re going to be changing the look around here at AccessN2Grace.

Let the Journey begin…

If you’ll look to the right of the screen you’ll notice videos.   These are featured videos from  Revival History,  Worship Playlists, Song of the Week, and Playlists from current events.    Currently the Featured Event playlist is the  21 Days of Prayer at Church of the Highlands.

On the left side of the page there are links to earlier posts, what’s going on at Twitter, a tag cloud (the larger the text the more posts on that subject.) and at the bottom is a category drop-down list if you prefer to search for past posts by category.

At the top of the page you’ll see pictures for featured posts.  Click on the picture and it will take you to that particular post.

And if you just want to go back to the home page just click on the AccessN2Grace at the top left of the page or click on the word Home located at the top of the page in the center.

Have fun and if there are any broken links or something else related to only this website  that you think I should be aware of contact me on the contact page.

21 Days of Fasting and Prayer.

When you think about the distractions in life, what seems to hinder or pull you away the most from your daily Bible study and Prayer?  Is it a certain website that seems to draw you away from life because you might miss out on something someone has said or done?

Maybe it’s just runaway thoughts. A certain person crosses your mind and you rehearse what you wish you would have said and stir up those old emotions again.   Some times I think Satan sits back and takes notes on how we allow one event to continue bringing distress.  He doesn’t have to do anything but sit back and watch us defeat ourselves.

Or if the truth be told, you’ve heard so many basically say “I don’t know what happened, but I’m going to blame it all on God and tell everyone He’s using the devil and how he kills, steals, and destroys for his glory.”  So you don’t trust God or even believe that He Loves you or wants to help.    Rest assured God takes the wrap and unfortunately a lot of saints have left the earth too soon because of a lot of false doctrine. Which is why it is so important to read the word yourself.  If you don’t know His word and have only heard rumors, you don’t know that you should fight or how to fight against a real attack.


If you’re looking for an answer for why your prayer didn’t get answered or why something didn’t happen, satan is there willing and ready to tell you that Jesus IS NOT the same yesterday, today, and forever.  And he’ll use whoever he can to spread that rumor.


This type of thinking or whatever else it is that pulls you away from God, I challenge you to let it go and put it aside for 21 days.

If there is something in your life that you are using to seek comfort instead of going to God, It might be an idol.   Anything that you just can’t say “no” to or it seems to defeat you no matter how hard you try.  Fasting can help you gain control.   For more information on Fasting and the types of fasts check out  Fasting resources at Church of the Highlands  and for more information on the upcoming #21DaysOfPrayer  check out their website.   Church of the Highlands 21 Days of Prayer

Various churches throughout the country will be kicking off 21DaysOfPrayer this Sunday.

Monday January 8th set the alarm a little earlier and be there or join in on the online services at 6:00 am CST Monday January 8th, 2018    Online Services

Thank You Church of the Highlands and all the other participating churches across the US for providing this opportunity for corporate fasting, prayer and worship.

Great article for anyone who is, was, or will be married!

I stumbled across this in my Facebook feed the other day and it captured my attention.  I thought “hmmm… more click bait”

Since it already had my attention, I am glad my curiosity led me to the article.  Wow is all I can say.


It’s not click bait.  She’s right on target.


This article is packed with thought provoking content. With numerous things to ponder, it’s almost a marriage seminar rolled up into one blog post that can be read in less than  5 minutes.   Even if you have a great marriage, what you can actually practice after reading this article will take it up another notch.

Go from Mar”RAGE” to the God designed Marriage.

Thank you Meg Marie Wallace for sharing from you heart!

Without further ado… here’s a link to the article..

The ONE thing guaranteed to end ALL marriages.

Come As You Are

I remember as a child the song  “Just as I am”.   The day I headed forward to the altar was the day I realized that no matter what had happened to me, God Loved me as I was at the time.

I know that sometimes it’s not so easy to feel worthy of all the good things that the Bible says God has to offer.  Just remember this.  God knew you before you were formed and he sent His son to die for you so that you might live.

I LOVE this song.   Whatever you have going on in your life.  Take a moment and let the Father love on you during this song.   And as always… Come as you are.

We must wear Faith, Love, and Hope of salvation.

There is no need to write you, friends, about the times and occasions when these things will happen. For you yourselves know very well that the Day of the Lord will come as a thief comes at night. When people say, “Everything is quiet and safe,” then suddenly destruction will hit them! It will come as suddenly as the pains that come upon a woman in labor, and people will not escape.

But you, friends, are not in the darkness, and the Day should not take you by surprise like a thief. All of you are people who belong to the light, who belong to the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, we should not be sleeping like the others; we should be awake and sober. It is at night when people sleep; it is at night when they get drunk. But we belong to the day, and we should be sober.

We must wear faith and love as a breastplate, and our hope of salvation as a helmet. God did not choose us to suffer his anger, but to possess salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us in order that we might live together with him, whether we are alive or dead when he comes.

And so encourage one another and help one another, just as you are now doing. We beg you, our friends, to pay proper respect to those who work among you, who guide and instruct you in the Christian life. Treat them with the greatest respect and love because of the work they do. Be at peace among yourselves.

We urge you, our friends, to warn the idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. See that no one pays back wrong for wrong, but at all times make it your aim to do good to one another and to all people. Be joyful always, pray at all times, be thankful in all circumstances.

This is what God wants from you in your life in union with Christ Jesus. Do not restrain the Holy Spirit; do not despise inspired messages.


Put all things to the test: keep what is good and avoid every kind of evil.


May the God who gives us peace make you holy in every way and keep your whole being—spirit, soul, and body—free from every fault at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you will do it, because he is faithful.

Pray also for us, friends. Greet all the believers with the kiss of peace. I urge you by the authority of the Lord to read this letter to all the believers. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

(1 Thessalonians 5:1-28 GNB)

Sometimes no commentary or explanation is needed. The Bible really is a straight forward letter of instructions for today.  #ForeverTrue #ForeverApplicable

Want to do Ministry? Do the Dishes.

Oh my,  I think the first time I heard that was from Joyce Meyer many years ago. At the time I thought “That’s weird.”  It’s taken me a few years, but she or whoever said it first was right.   If you want to serve in the ministry getting your dishes under control is a first step.   If you can right now look at your kitchen and cannot see your sink or your counter tops.   Stop what you are doing and go tackle that kitchen.

You know you can fellowship with God by turning on your favorite praise music, finally listen to that audio tape or podcast.  Or just start singing praise songs and pray while you are doing the dishes.

If you’re overwhelmed with your house and you just stare and really don’t know what to do.   Here is a website that will thrust your ministry into being.  www.flylady.net    By gaining control of your home you can and will have time to do Bible Studies, have a Bible Study at your house, or volunteer at your Church.   The list of possibilities is infinite.  So if you have been praying for help because you are just overwhelmed with your current situation.    Find time and remove chaos with FlyLady.      Then enjoy all the extra time you have to spend in fellowship with God and being about His business.

Hey what are you still doing here?   If you need me I’m going to be shining my sink.
