Marital Dilemmas

As I surf the internet, seeking mindful articles to read, all I find are posts regarding domestic violence,  infidelity and divorce. It's a shame how so many couples who once professed  the term "Till Death Do You Part", can't address each other in a civil tone in pubic or behind close. Now, if the couple has  kids (the bundle of joys)  have to wittiness their parent's stressful behavior. Perhaps, it's because they need of dose of this ...
Proverbs 18:22 (GW) - Whoever finds a wife finds something good and has obtained favor from the Lord.
The above bible verse goes for men too ...
Oh well, all I can do as a Pastor is pray for all those couples that are having marital dilemmas and continue to thank the Lord for my supportive GEM (hubby) and our 4 fun-loving sons. Because they know how much I love to pick up a book, snuggle up in my favorite nook and read till I'm almost finished with the book ... ‪#Hehehe‬,
Oh yes, my Dominican Danish (husband) prepared a tasty cup of coffee for me, so that it can accompany every turning of the pages, while our 4 Diamond sons do the rest of the laundry ... ‪#ThankYouJesus‬,

Healthy Advice

Afternoon Everyone:
Life is full of lessons and everyone you meet can turn into an instant teacher. Don't you know that they're all part of the learning experience that Jesus Christ has destined for you?
Acknowledging those lessons isn't easy, especially when things don't go your way; nonetheless if you take a few seconds to rewind the tape with call life, then you'll be able to appreciate life more. Such as, if your denied a particular job or a relationship doesn't work for some reason or other, it only means something better is out there waiting for you. Therefore, don't continue to waste your time arguing about stuff that only hardens heart and that's the 1st. lesson towards having peace of mind ...
Revelation 3:20 (NCV) - Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and eat with you, and you will eat with me.

Here's a thought, what does a person do when someone knocks on their door? They ask who it is, let them in and chat up a storm. That's what the Prince of Peace wants to do with you. Talk about what's going on in your life and offer some healthy advice ...

Welcome Back Monday:

If we use the entire dictionary, there still wouldn't be enough words to truly express how GRATEFUL we are to the Lord; because He's allowed us to see you (Monday) again ... ‪#Hehehe‬, Furthermore, it's another opportunity for us to grow and bond as a family, as well as letting the world know that everything we have and do is because Jesus Christ is the core of our life's ... Before we conclude this post, we'd like to leave all of you this ...
Psalm 121:8 (NLT) -The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
Have a blessed Monday everyone ... #HaLLeLuJaH,

Today's Agenda

Rise and Shine Lovelies:

It's Friday (hooray) and extremely cold outside; however that shouldn't keep you from receiving what the Lord has in store for you ... Lots of new blessings from above, reminiscing with old or current friends, finally reconciling with siblings  and equipping yourself in a determined fashion; so that you can be a source of comfort, strengthen and joy for those who have less than you ... Without a doubt, this is what our family desires for you and yours ...
Numbers 6:24-26 (ESV)...
24. The Lord bless you and keep you; 25. the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; 26. the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

A Child's Innocence

On this lovely Wednesday morning, we're GRATEFUL because as we look out our windows and observe the manner in which the  children of our community: laugh, run and play with their friends before going to school, it brings a smile to our faces, on account of most of their parents have shared their testimonies with my GEM & me ...
They've been homeless, without enough food and even had numerous illnesses in the family, too ... Thank the Lord that these little babies continue to delight in their innocence and embrace this bible verse ... too, even if they don't know it ...
Proverbs 17:22 (ESV) - A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Good morning and blessings to each parent and their bundles of joy, too ...

Rebuke, Misguided Agends

 How should you conduct yourself when someone try's to persuade you into accepting their fraudulent teaching and preaching of God's word? If you don't know, then here's a bible based reply ...

2 John 1:10-11 (NLT) - If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement. 11 Anyone who encourages such people becomes a partner in their evil work.

It's a shame, how so many people who are lost and miserable because they've rearranged the verses in the bible to satisfy their own misguided agenda ... That's why we always advise every member of the Body of Christ and those men, women and youth that are taking their first steps towards turning over their life's to Jesus, to set up a daily schedule for praying, studying the bible and visit a Church that preaches and teaches the full and unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ ... ‪#Amen‬,


Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Dear Lord:

Before we say another word, we'd love to thank You (Lord) for letting us see another day, forgiving all our past mistakes, showing us how phenomenal life can be if we only step aside our impulsive desires and take your advice (obeying what's in the bible) ... As each day goes by, we're so grateful that so many of our siblings, friends and neighbors (online and off), will one day testify the samething or more too ... On account of, this is what the bible says ...and we do it every time we get a chance ....

Psalm 105:1 (NLT) - Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.

Of ALL Ages

While I was along, at home and studying God's word, this is the message that the Lord conveyed to me, so that I could share with the women and men of all ages  ... 

1 Timothy 5:1-2 (GW)
1. Never use harsh words when you correct an older man, but talk to him as if he were your father. Talk to younger men as if they were your brothers, 2. older women as if they were your mothers, and younger women as if they were your sisters, while keeping yourself morally pure.

 This way, everyone (no matter what age they are) should receive the love and respect they deserve ... ‪#Something2Ponder‬,

Specifically 4 You!

Bonjour, Lovely People:

While so many of you are getting ready to start a new day, preparing breakfast for your spouse or the  kids and even sneaking in a prayer or two before you leave for school or work ... On the flip side, their are those of you, who are still savoring a few more minutes, tucked in your warm beds, with the covers over your heads (hehehe) and waiting for the alarm clock to ring , this is our Friday morning desire for all the above ...

Numbers 6:24-26 (NLT) - 24. ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. 25. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. 26. May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace.’

What's more, we'll chat a little more later now; because today is Friday and it's the next step to an awesome weekend, too ... ‪#HaLLeLuJaH‬,

God's, Endless Opportunities

Greetings ALL:

Wednesday morning, the middle of the week and here's what comes with it ... A wonderful opportunity to redo some of the past few days mishaps, more time to lift up a heartfelt prayer for a sibling or friend in need, and most of all, to share the with the rest of the world Jesus Christ's endless love, too ...

That's why you should raise and shine and give way to a positive outlook on life; because as the dawn breaks into a stunning sunrise, may the Lord shower you and yours with His blessings of love and continue to guide you down a sanguine path ...

A Sign of Gratitude

I'm so GRATEFUL that I've discovered that studying the bible, followed by reading one of my
favorite books is extremely relaxing, refreshing and maintains me alert ...  On account of, this is what the bible shares with all who study the word ...
Matthew 25:13 (NCV) - So always be ready, because you don’t know the day or the hour the Son of Man will come.
Studying God's word, on a daily bases is an excellent exercise for growing spiritual minds ... #HaLLeLuJaH,

Sunday's Advocate

While your in Church, listening to a message full of hope and restoration, don't forget to share what you've heard and learned with non believers and members of the Body of Christ that are struggling with some sort of temptation, too ...

Galatians 6:1(NCV) - Brothers and sisters, if someone in your group does something wrong, you who are spiritual should go to that person and gently help make him right again. But be careful, because you might be tempted to sin, too.

Furthermore, if you seriously want to help someone who's struggling with ungodly habits, then emphasize on this ...

Galatians 6:8(NLT) - Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

Lastly, don't throw in the towel when it comes to sharing God's Good News with people that are reluctant to what your saying, on account of this ...

Galatians 6:9 (NLT) - So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

Good Morning Lovelies:

As a wife, mother and Pastor on the go, the first thing my spirit craves for isthat my GEM & I partake of our early bird prayer time, followed by waking up our 4 well rested sons, prepare a yummy cup of coffee for my hubby, something tasty and warm for our 4 college sons. Now, while, my 5 soldiers of Christ are watching the news in the living room and getting ready to embark upon a new day, I whisk away to my favorite nook, grab ahold of my bible and then I start to get to know the Lord more ...

Proverbs 1:5 (NLT) - Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even
wiser. Let those with understanding receive guidance. 

This is how, I kick start a grateful new day and I thought I'd share it with all of you so that you'd get an idea on how to truly enjoy life during any type of circumstance ...

Life's an Amusing Teacher

It's amusing how life teaches you lessons when you least expect it ... For instance, at any moment
of the day, some things are going to go well, while others aren't going as you or I like ...
However, that doesn't mean we shouldn't be grateful; because we take a few minutes to truly examine the situation, the Lord will bring clarity into our life's and then we'll comprehend the definition of being grateful and on account of this, too ...
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)- Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Have a blessed week everyone ...

Friday, September 5, 2014

Thank God, It's Friday

 A loving reminder for all of you that can't fall asleep at this moment ...
When you pray for others, it takes your mind off what's truly upsetting you. During your prayer session, God listens to you, consoles you and even motivates you to pray for someone that undergoing something more painful than you ...
Prayer also creates a safe haven for you, your love ones and even someone that misunderstood you, too ... Indeed, life is full of blessings; however we have to be patient and continue to pray! On that note, express Gratitude for all the good, confusing and funny things Jesus Christ introduced into your life ...

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Morning All:

After delighting in my early bird prayer time, waking everyone up for school (college), preparing lunch for 4 our studious sons, followed by serving my hubby a warm and tasty cup of coffee ... The Advincola family immediately clutched each others hands, prayed for one and other, then the hug & kiss feast began ...

Now, I'm alone, sitting on our red comfy couch and studying God's word. Not to mention, this bible verse spoke to me in an awesome way and I hope it does the same for you, too ...

Ecclesiastes 2:26(NLT) - God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. This, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind.

Have a blessed day everyone ... #Amen,

Bestowed Upon You

Life is a blessing bestowed upon us by God and it mirrors what's in your heart ... The choices you make, the conversations you share and especially how you react to the smallest or BIGGEST incidents in life, truly display who you really are ...

That's why the bible is so clear when it says this ...

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (HCSB) - Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Thus, put a smile on your face and ask the Lord to help you gather positive thoughts, so that you can truly enjoy your God given life ... #Amen,

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

A Brief Quiz

 Who do you trust and why? Or is the foundation of your trust based upon what you've obtained along the years? We ask these questions because society's trust level varies within a blink of an eye ... At times it's good and other times it really isn't; because in our opinion that's a sign that a person is walking on shaky ground ...

That's why we always concur with this ...

Psalm 20:7 (NCV) - Some trust in chariots, others in horses, but we trust the Lord our God.

Continue to enjoy the rest of your day ... #Amen,

Sunday Morning's Inquiry

Did you know that worrying is a total waste of time and it wrinkles the mind(hypothetically specking) ... It if really think about it, nothing changes and all it does is fill your mind with tainted thoughts and steals your joy ...

This is why you can't have joy without peace, and there is no peace without Jesus Christ in your life ... We affirm the previous statement with this ...

John 16:33 (ESV) - I have said these things to you, that in me... you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Since your a creation of God, your blessed to a certain extent; but if your wish to embrace the complete gift that our Lord Jesus Christ has to offer, then expect Him as your personal Savor and then what you'll experience will leave you speechless ... Because when God transforms a person life, He does it from the world to see and comprehend that no one can ever love you more than Him ...

Oh Yes, Anniversary #26

On this day, 26 years ago, my GEM & I exchanged our vows in front of God, the congregation, family, friends and the community, too ... This is one of the happiest milestones in our life's ... During these 26 blissful years, my hubby & I have totally enjoyed each others company in more ways than one ...

Thank you Heavenly Matchmaker for telling me in Church 27 1/2 ago to turn around because you had a long awaited gift for me ... I'm so glad I did, because NOW & ALWAYS I'm blessed with a loving husband, a positive roll model for our 4 Diamonds sons and the man that makes my hearts beat 100 mph every time I see him or hear his sweet, strong and Dominican voice ... #HaveMercy, Ladies & gentlemen, WAIT on the Lord and you'll see how BLESSED married life is ... #SweetJesusLove,

Wednesday's Memo

Life isn't a fairy tale ... it's real! Sure, you'll always encounter a few ups or downs; however it's essential that you don't forget that your not alone ... Furthermore, if you obey God's word and make it more about Him and less about your whims, our Heavenly Father will award you with enough strengthen to weather any unexpected storm(crisis) ... Or have you forgotten this?

Matthew 19:26(NLT) - Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”

Take this to heart, because God loves you ... #Amen,

Friday, May 9, 2014

Greetings Dear God:

Your our joy and strengthen when we need it the most ... Please, continue to instruct us so that
we too may be vessels of comfort for all those that cross our paths, with burdens that seem to heavy for them to carry or comprehend? And as a result, they feel like giving up ... Give us knowledge and wisdom to help them along the journey we call life?

James 1:5 (HCSB) - Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without criticizing, and it will be given to him.

We ask this because what child doesn't dream of being just like their Heavenly Daddy? This what we pray, today and always ... #Amen,

LOUD, Loving & Long Lasting

Jesus Christ, thank you so much for bringing into our life's the peace of mind and endless joy that no amount of money on this earth could ever come close to ... This is why on this Thursday morning we're going to start it off with a LOUD, loving and long lasting praise ... Because, your word is a constant reminder of how we as your children should be obedient and that's why we're doing this ...

Psalm 150:6 (NKJV) - Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!

Would anyone care to join us? Feel free to do so where ever you are ... #HaLLeLuJaH,

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Greetings Everyone:

Here's a delightful thought that will help you savor a flavorful Wednesday ...

Luke 6:31 (HCSB) - Just as you want others to do for you, do the same for them.

On that note, get-up-and-go, because your going to have a yummy day ...

Multi Tasking

Yes, everyone can be a multi tasker in so many areas of your life; however if you wish to be more efficient for God's glory, dig your teeth into this ...

Matthew 6:24 (ESV) - No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Serving the Lord doesn't mean that you need a side kick just in case an unexpected dilemma pops up. On the contrary, think twice about the ABOVE bible verse and you'll see how awesome light can be ...

An Inquiry


What type of sensation do you feel after you've shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with someone in your life? It's just that sometimes the running "ALL" over the place, trying to keep things in order can keep us from doing this ... 
Mark 16:15 (NKJV) - And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
One more question, where would you be if the Lord didn't send someone to share the Gospel with your? Another reason why I dare to ask this question is because I hope and pray you feel this ...
Romans 1:16 (NKJV) - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
Something to think about during your relaxing Saturday ...


Thursday, March 13, 2014

Don't Be Faint-Hearted

Take back what the devil stole from you through daily prayer sessions, studying God's word(the Bible) and congregating at a church where the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached and taught, too ... #Amen,
On account of, this is what the bible shares with us ...
2 Timothy 1:7 (HCSB) -  For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.
Therefore, don't be afraid to stand firm and declare over your life what the Lord has promised you, if our Heavenly Father told you that something is coming your way, all you have to do is this ...
John 16:13 (HCSB) -  When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He will also declare to you what is to come.

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Life, Patience & Faith

The closer you get to the Lord and we're referring to a spiritual, emotional and last but certainly not least an honest sense, then without a doubt you'll be able to experience this ...

Psalm 40:1-3 (NKJV)
1. I waited patiently for the L
ord; And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry. 2. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. 3. He has put a new song in my mouth — Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the Lord.

 Dealing with the issues of life takes time, patience and this amount of faith ...

Mark 11:23 (NCV) - I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, fall into the sea.’ And if you have no doubts in your mind and believe that what you say will happen, God will do it for you. 

 Now, go off and enjoy the rest of your Saturday ... #Amen,

Sunday, February 23, 2014

It's Not Wise!

We don't believe in squandering our time in dismantling some one's life with lies, instead our aura is centered on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all those who are feeling abandoned, lost and confused ... For the simple reason that is about to occur ...

James 5:8 (NKJV) You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.



Saturday, February 1, 2014

Overheard Conversations

We've frequently overheard conversations about how certain prayers aren't being answered at the pace of what people expect ... Based on our past and present experiences, this is what we'd like to add to those all daily chit chatters ...

2 Peter 3:9 (HCSB) - The Lord does not delay His promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish but all to come to repentance.

Is someone adventurous enough to say #Amen?

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

My Favorite Book

I'm so grateful for the entire bible; however I'm also extremely taken by the book of Proverbs. Perhaps it's because it's focal point is mainly on promoting discipline and successful living ...

The book of Proverbs is full of insight that's spoken in a riddle like form and if you take the time to carefully ponder through each verse, you'll perceive the essence of what the Lord truly wants to say. That's why Proverbs is my favorite book in the bible ...

Proverbs 18:15 (ESV) - An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.

Thus, bundle up and have a Tasty Tuesday Everyone ...


Tuesday, January 21, 2014

On Call, Full-Time

I'm not ashamed to smile or say that I'm a full-time wife, mother and Pastor too ... That's why I thank the Lord for the ability to be a multi tasker in our home. For the reason being, that yes I've been called to the Pastoral ministry with my husband; however I can't abandon my responsibilities at home ...

1 Timothy 3:5 ~  If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?

For some people, what I've stated may sound a little frivolous; but I feel so gleeful whenever I'm involved in my Hubby's and our 4 Diamond sons activities. No, I'm not a super athletic nor do I embrace a great deal of computer savvy like my husband or other proficient computer geeks when it comes to building a computer from scratch. All I know is that God has instilled in me a Cheerleader Spirit so that wherever my family goes, they'll  know that I'm praying for them so that our Heavenly Father escutcheons from evil minded individuals that don't appreciate their desire to rejoice in everything they do ...
By the grace of God, I'm proud to say the following - I'm wife, mom and Pastor too 24/7 for the rest of my life; because this is how I feel ...  
Matthew 6:21  (NKJV) - For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
