Be Thankful
Be thankful that you dont already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to? Be thankful when you dont know something. For it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations. Because they give you opportunities for improvement. Be thankful for each new challenges. Because it will build your strength and character. Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when youre tired and weary. Because it means youve made a difference. It is easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.

The Word of the LORD

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41: 10 (KJV)

Be of Good Courage
Are there times when you are feeling down, in despair, and heavy hearted? Have you felt like giving up thinking things will not improve for the better? Have you been waiting on God, but feel like he is not responding to your needs? Whatever your situation, know that the Lord is more than able to supply your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Likewise, Psalm 27:14 says Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Waiting on the Lord may be unbearable sometimes; especially in times when you need an urgent miracle or response from God. However, the risk of not waiting on God could be costly in the end. Robert Dean Steel once said that true fruitfulness in life happens when you stay connected to God. Remember that God has great things in store for his children. He will take you to higher heights if you open up and allow him in. God is aware of your needs, but his timing of blessings is not always the same as ours. So, be of good courage, wait on the Lord, and stay connected to him at all times. ~ Chika N. Akugha

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD PSALM 31: 24 (KJV)

Step Forward
It is with great pleasure that I welcome each of you to the year 2013, and to our Women of Impact (WOI) January edition. God has graciously seen us through 2012 successfully in our Women of Impact ministry. We give glory to God for His abounding faithfulness and mercies. With reflections, WOI will be six months this January. During the past year, we have had joint fellowships with one another unto the Lord. We celebrated our end of year fellowship, and graced one another with gift exchanges. The bond of fellowship, oneness, sisterly love dwells among the WOI in Mercy Hall. I am excited for what God has in store for WOI this year. He is surely taking us to Higher Heights in the WOI ministry. Just to reiterate what we stand for so you understand the impact we are mandated to make as WOI. ordained to be and do from God. In essence, He can take charge over all that you have planned. Step forward and be rest assured that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13) when you release yourself and your goals unto God.

as we journey through 2013, we

make our declaration to further the gospel through fellowship, stewardship, and service.

This year, WOI will On that note, step forward in a new dimenits possible some of sion to enrich lives starting you have made new from Mercy Hall to the glory years resolutions, set of God. Brethren, God wants goals, or mapped out Chika N. Akugha to accomplish a lot in our different plans for the Leader- WOI lives. Therefore, we must rest of the year. step forward and move forward in Maybe, you have not decided on what grace with absolute totality. goals to set, or what areas of change you need to focus on this year. It is my prayer that Gods All the same, one must have a vision and concrete goals to have a successful and impactful life. Bear in mind that above every goal you set forth for this year, the foremost goal I know for sure is the bibles mandate that we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. The reward thereof for accomplishing this goal is that every other things will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). Take time to commit your goals and your ways unto the Lord, so gracious favor will uplift you to higher heights as you open your respective barns to collect the various miracles that will be showered on you as you step forward to live an impactful life. God bless you richly.

In the WOI ministry, we are raised to raise, we are lifted to be lifters, we are blessed to be channels of blessing to all.
This is the WOI goal statement. To raise, lift, and bless others requires absolute commitment and dedication to fulfill all that we are

Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. Proverbs 16:3

You Cannot See Faith, but You Can See the Footprints of the Faithful. We Must Leave Behind Positive Footprints for Others to Follow. ~ Unknown.

Foundation for a Glorious Year 2013

Peace of mind Psalms 37:37; Gladness Psalms 64:10; He shall flourish Psalms 72:7; Psalms 92: 12; Rejoicing Proverbs 18:10.

The Worlds tallest building as at today is the Burj Khalifa opened in Dubai in January 4, 2010. Burj Khalifa stands at a staggering 2,717 ft tall (more than half a mile high.) While most attention focuses on its height, perhaps more important is what lies buried beneath the building. Without a solid foundation, the Worlds tallest building would become the worlds longest pile of rubble. No wonder it took a whole year just to build the foundation of Burj Khalifa. So is it with great lives. What people see, what people marvel about are the great heights to which some people seem to soar, yet supporting any truly great life is a solid foundation. A heralded career is built on foundational principles like dependability, dedication, commitment and hard work. A celebrated sixtieth wedding anniversary results from deep love and selflessness. Successful retirement depends on years of responsible money management. Foundation matters in everything in life. Start right, continue right and you will finish right in Jesus name. Foundation is the basis or groundwork of anything you want to do or you are doing. It is the natural or prepared ground or base on which structures rests. The foundation determines the stability of the superstructure. If the foundation is weak, what you put on it will naturally crumble no tion be destroyed what can the righteous do. Foundation is tied to preparation as it prepares the structure for what will come upon it. Outstanding performance in the future is a product of qualitative preparation today. Effective preparation (foundation) will result in unusual manifestation. God will bless you and take you to the height He has ordained for you in year 2013 as you work on these foundations for a glorious year 2013.

Foundation of the fear of the Lord This is the dread of offending God
consider who He is and all He has done for you. This mindset restrains you from thinking or doing evil because of the consciousness of divine presence. The fear of the Lord is being hypersensitive to divine presence. Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the forward mouth do I hate. Proverbs 16:6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged, and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. The fear of the Lord is a commandment with a promise. Deuteronomy 6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. Benefits of the Fear of God: Long life: Deuteronomy 6:2, Proverbs 10:27; Serving God with rejoicing Psalms 2:11; Secrets of the Lord will be with you. Psalms 25:14; Eyes of God will be with you. Psalms.35:18; Angels will always encamp around you to bring you deliverance .Psalms 34:7; No want in your life .Psalms 34:9; His salvation will be near you .Psalms 85:9

The Foundation of Prayer:

and mighty things, which thou knowest not. 1Chronicles 4:9 And Jabez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. 1Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. 1Thessalonians 5:17 - Pray without ceasing. Luke 18:1- And He spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not to faint.

matter how fanciful, great or adorable it is. Psalms 11:3 says if the founda- Jeremiah 33:3 - Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great

Foundation of salvation:
Another name for salvation is new birth or to be born again. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again Friend, are you born again? Dont deceive yourself! Be born again; make a conscious decision to follow Jesus today and you will never regret you did.

Foundation of gratitude:
1Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. You must have a grateful heart to have a blissful life. One great way to measure your gratitude to God is how you allow His blessings upon your life to strengthen your commitment to Him. How much you allow Gods blessings upon your life to move you to love and serve Him better.

Foundations of righteousness:
Righteousness means to be in right standing with God. You must know God, understand his ways, know His expectations for your life and obey him
in all areas of life. Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Being righteous is a command by God Almighty 1Peter 1:15 but as He who hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of living.

Foundation of Mercy:
Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Mercy is compassionate or kindly forbearance shown towards an offender. It is compassion, pity, or benevolence. Mercy is the act of kindness, compassion or favor.

There are several benefits of righteousness, some of which are: Deliverance from death Proverbs 11:4; Divine Protection Proverbs. 11:5; Answered prayers Psalms 34:15; Prosperity Psalms 37:29;

Honor your parents and those God is using to nurture and feed you spiritually. In conclusion, be wise by being obedient to the Word of God , work on these foundations, stand on these foundations and 2013 shall be a year of years for you in Jesus name. Remember Proverbs 9:12 says : If thou be

Foundation of Humility: (Humility is the opposite of pride.)

What is pride? A high or inordinate opinion of ones own dignity, importance, merit or superiority whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing, conduct e.t.c. Pride is having too high an opinion of ones

self, accomplishments or acquisitions. Pride means being full of ones self and wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt when you are full of yourself, you will be empty of God. James 4:10- Humble bear it. Proverbs 9:12 You are the one who will profit if you have wisdom, yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. 1Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 1Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: The bible says in Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: Proverbs 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. The proud man puts Himself in the place of God and ascribes to Himself the glory due to God. Isa 2:11 Human pride will be brought down, and human arrogance will be humbled. Only the LORD will be exalted on that day of judgment. You must humble yourself as you get into this glorious 2013 because you need Gods grace much more than ever before and the proud cannot enjoy grace. James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 1Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadest not received it? If any blessing of God moves you into pride, that blessing may not last, it may be short lived, please repent of pride and humble yourself. You must humble yourself as you get into this glorious 2013 because you need Gods grace much more than ever before and the proud cannot enjoy grace. James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 1Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadest not received it? If any blessing of God moves you into pride, that blessing may not last, it may be short lived, please repent of pride and humble yourself. and if you reject it, you are the one who will suffer. Proverbs 9:10 Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.

Burj Khalifa Building

Darlene was sitting on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she spoke up, 'Grandpa, did God make you?' 'Yes, darling,' he answered, 'God made me a long time ago.' 'Oh,' Darlene paused, 'Grandpa, did God make me too?' 'Yes, indeed, poppet,' he said, 'God made you just a little while ago. Feeling their respective faces again, Darlene observed, 'God's getting better at it, isn't he?'

Foundation of Generosity:
Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. In this year 2013, much more than ever before, be generous to God. Pay your tithes, give offerings, support the work of God with your resources, and remember that all you have is given to you by the Lord. Be generous to your fellowmen, to widows, the fatherless, the poor, and needy. Be generous to your parents (biological and spiritual).

Biblical Tools for Coping with Stress

By Yemisi Idim, RN, MSN


1. We are promised the peace of God John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. Isaiah 40:30, 31 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Malachi 4:2 But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. Romans 8:6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Roman 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. Philippians 4: 6, 7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 1 Peter 5:6,7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that at the proper time he may exalth you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Matthew 11:28 Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden. Psalms 37:5 Commit your ways to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act. Psalms 55: 22 Cast your burden on the Lord; and He will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalms 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy; who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. Luke 10: 41-42 But the Lord answered her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her. 1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

MERCY HALL PROPERTY ACQUISITION Our God is at Work!! Our dream and Our vision for the first quarter of year 2013 is to acquire our current location at 24814 Saddlespur Lane, Katy, TX 77494. Join us to partner with Him to make this dream, this vision a reality. GOD is COUNTING on US.

On the last Sunday of 2012, our Pastor preached on the topic The story has not ended where he encouraged us to keep trusting God for our miracles despite the fact that we had just 36 hours to the end of the year. He specifically made a divine pronouncement that someone will receive a miracle before reaching home after the service. As we drove out of the church, after the service, we received a phone call from a close relation, who followed up the call with a visit to our home and before he left, he made a commitment to assist me in fulfilling a dream that I almost gave up on and to firm up that commitment, he issued a check of a very large sum of money to me to kick start the realization of my dream. This can only be God and I return all the glory to Him and Him alone. ~ Uche
