  Sunday I was doubly blessed to be able to attend two great worship services. The firstone at Calvary Chapel Worship Center, my regular church. The second one at The Daily Transformation Ministry where we had our Tea Party and also where we’re having a “Soaking Service” in ten days. That’s going to be awesome. A lot of people are really excited about that.

Pastor Strayer at Calvary Chapel Worship Center  always gives great sermons, awesome teachings. The kind that hit home. I’m sure many people were convicted in his teachings.

After the service at CCWC  I went over to hear Marisol preach at the Daily Transformation Ministry. Wow, it was getting hot in there. You could feel the Holy Spirit move through the place. Her husband Todd was doing the Praise and Worship and it was awesome. I discovered that he actually wrote some of the songs. What a gift!  The anointing was all over the place. I felt blessed to have the opportunity to witness to all the wonderful teachings and anointings. God is certainly moving in  these churches. After the Service, lucky for me it was Agape Sunday again! Who hoo. The food was wonderful and the fellowship was terrific as always. I am looking forward to the  fellowship and worship in the future at this very special church.

Don’t forget to come see all of us on Friday, July13, 2012 at 7 pm for the “Soaking in the  Holy Spirit Fountain  of  Fire and Healing.” at the Daily Transformation Ministry. Look for the links to their Facebook pages in my link section.

 Pastor Estell is having a service at The Daily Transformation Ministry on July 13, 2012. It will be a “Soaking in the Holy Spirit Fountain of Fire and Healing” ministry service. Thank you Pastor Freddy and the parishoner’s  of The Daily Transformation Ministry for having this service in your church. See link section for address and website of the church.

I have been listening everyday to the music from the website http://www.soakingwithapurpose.com. Wonderfully relaxing and fulfilling spiritual music. Please feel free to check out the site. If you know of other sites please let me know so I may share them on this blog.

I am anticipating going to this special service. I am believing it’s just what I need to fill me or re-fill me with the Holy Spirit.  I just want to seek more of Him.

A description of soaking was borrowed from the soakingwithapurpose.com website:” soaking is an intimate time where we place ourselves in a posture of rest in the Lord’s presence while listening to anointed music created to impart to our spirit and bypass our mind.”  What a beautiful way to describe it. To also have Healing along with the Fire of the Holy Spirit sounds like it’s going to be a powerful service indeed! I am so looking forward to it.

I think I will get there early enough to get a parking spot. Sounds like it’s going to be a full house, awesome.

P.S. The address for The Daily Transformation Ministry is 7425 Orchid Lake Rd., New Port Richey, Florida.

 Pastor Estell was a guest pastor today at Pastor Freddys church The Daily Transformation Ministry  at 7425 Orchid Lake Rd., New Port Richey. She spoke  of Love and “how it is not self serving, nor forced. Love is forgiveness. It’s a choice,  and starting today let’s make better choices.” To also have “a zeal for the Lord. If we can be excited over sports or someone’s accomplishments why can’t we also be “excited and have zeal for the Lord?” We need to walk in Love towards our enemies.

Pastor Estell taught us the Five Languages of Love. First, words of affirmation, second, quality time, third, receiving gifts, fourth, acts of service and fifth is physical touch. We all have one or more of these love languages that speak to us. Which ones are yours? Which are your spouses, mother, father, childrens , neighbors, friends, clerks, you get the picture. Powerful teaching and preaching on Love.

Pastor Freddy also spoke of Love and the heart and how God is still working in your life. How God uses the “stuff” in your life to bring about good. “When you don’t see external growth God is working on your root system.”  The only thing that remains is Faith, Hope and Love. They are everlasting. Good teaching. Wow, that hit home with me for sure what about you. I got the Word God, thanks. During Communion we learned to receive with honor and forgiveness. To ask God to help us release forgiveness, guilt, and  pain. To Believe that God is working in our life. Very touching, brought tears to my eyes.

Today was also AGAPE Sunday at The Daily Transformation Ministry. That meant fellowship and food. Lots and lots of each. What a wonderful post worship service. Kudos to the church ladies and leaders. The food was plentiful and delicious. I love to see the unity of people working together to get things done. Thank you all for such a wonderful service.

Blessings, Mary

Thursday night church service at CCWC was really filled with excitement. We had high School graduation ceremony and Spectrum Ministry graduation ceremony during service. Everyone was smiling as they walked up, received either a gift bag for the High school students or a diploma/certificate for the ministry students. They all have much to be be proud of. Everyone going out into the world filled with the Word of the Lord.

Praise and Worship was awesome as usual. If you are interested in being educated and filled more with the Word of God then stop by our church. It’s on Troublecreek Rd in New Port Richey. Or just follow the link in the link section and give them a call.

  Today is Mother’s Day. A day in which we honor our mothers. A special day for all mothers too. It’s kind of like having or getting validation for a job well done. The atmosphere at church this morning was a bit exciting. Every year the Missions Department takes free pictures of Mom’s and posts them in an album in the church website. All a person has  to do is get the picture from the church album and email it to their families. It’s all for a donation to the Missions department. The do all sorts of fund raising to send people that are called by God out into the Missions field. So if you have the calling, get in touch with them through the website http://www.ccwc.org or on Facebook, under the Calvary Chapel Worship Center in New Port Richey, Florida. See the link section of my blog.

I volunteer for the first service and Pastor Gail spoke. She had some powerful messages to tell us.. If you’re interested see 1John:1-3 in your Bible, as an example.  The message was about walking the talk, not just talking the walk. Jesus wants us to be as He is. To live as He did. He loves so much, He intercedes for us with the Father. I always wonder if I’m doing enough to please Him. I can probably do more. I want to please Him, I need to start by getting right with myself. A better attitude and outlook. God’s message really hit home with me today.

Our head pastor is Pastor Bill Strayer . He has a way of preaching and teaching that really touches you. Today I had multiple Holy Spirit goosebumps. It’s a good thing, a God thing. I feel blessed to have been led to this church to receive teachings and lessons I needed to learn. I also had to make myself available to be there to learn  them. Volunteering, taking classes and joining small groups is so important. Reaching out works both ways. I reach for Him, He reaches for me. Thank you Jesus, I needed that.

After church I went home changed my attitude, and my clothes went to get a well deserved pedicure, bought myself some flowers, and treats, took myself out for my favorite lunch, and then went to see an action movie. I felt wonderful when I returned home. I felt like I was kicking dirt on the devil. Oh that felt good. Thanks Lord for such a wonderful day.

Has anyone else done something to change their attitude in a positive way? Let me know, comment on my blog. Let’s get something started.

Tonight I stopped by to watch a little bit of softball at the field on Little Rd, New Port Richey. I didn’t take any pictures because of the chain link fencing in front of us, maybe next time. Calvary Chapel teams were playing against each other. It was pretty easy to cheer for the right team, just say “Go Calvary Chapel!” A win- win situation, a nice little family outing. Normal healthy stuff, comfortable clothes, no drinking, cursing, etc.

While I was there I met other people from church and made a new friend. Reverend Vera, was actually in a previous post of  The Network Ministries on this past Monday night. She and Pastor Estell were at the front desk registering the participants for the event. They are  the two smiling woman in the very first picture in the slideshow. Rev. Vera informed me that she also has a ministry,  It’s called “Tiny Rose Bushes Healing Ministry”. The Facebook link is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tiny-Rose-Bushes-Healing-Ministry/231900153500191 So please check her page out on Facebook.com.Please “like” her page and send her a message if you want to.

It’s really nice to see this blog just grow and go in His name. Reaching out and linking to others is awesome. It makes the world a smaller place, a friendlier place with more and more people of God joining together in His name.

Thank you, Jesus.

What a blessing to be at this event tonight. From what I understand it’s an annual event where people that are called to serve God are Commissioned and Ordained into the Ministry. Wow, the Anointing of the Holy Spirit was surely there tonight. Praise and Worship prior to the formality of the service was just incredible. Really moving, brought tears to my eyes. Powerful stuff. The speakers Pastor Gail, Pastor Marcus, Pastor Estell and Pastor Johann also had an awesome message to relay. You just had to be there to see what I mean and feel it for yourself. Afterwards there was  a meet and greet upstairs with food and beverages. Nicely done. Thanks Lori for asking me to go. Thanks Tina for reaffirming that I needed to be there with you also.

It was so moving to see the blessings and prayers bestowed upon the new people that were commissioned and ordained by the seasoned pastors and ministers. The kindnesses and gentle touch was such a nice thing to be witness too. Thanks Jesus for making sure I did not miss seeing this special event. So if you are called to serve the Lord, stop by our church, Calvary Chapel Worship Center, on Troublecreek, in New Port Richey, Florida and tell them you are inspired and required by the Lord to be there. They will tell you what classes you need to do after that.

Remember it’s all about HIM.

What an awesome morning at church. Not only was it our monthly “Communion and Cans” going on we also had a guest. Dara Maclean,  what an awesome woman of Christ.  Anointed in the Spirit, a kind and gentle person with the most awesome voice. Not just the sounds but her words. They are our words too. All her songs filled with divine motivations. For me, it just made my day. I also was able to get a picture with her. Now that’s a thrill for me. During service  it was so Spirit filling, goose bumps after goose bumps. I was able to speak with her briefly during our picture taking and told her what a fan I am of her and her music. I play her album over and over in my vehicle and my home. I let her know I have her  youtube videos posted on my blog and I listen to her on JoyFm Radio. She asked me to put it on her Facebook page! Woo Hoo again! So please check out the pictures of her (and Kirk) at CCWC.  And check out our wonderful church too. Then go to http://www.Daramaclean.com  to visit her site and also say “Hi”  and be sure to “Like”  her on her Facebook page. Thanks Dara for coming to our church.

Blogging is great. A way to meet new people and visit places you just cannot get to. I visited Sartenada’s  photo blog. She has pictures of a real Rock Church. Beautiful pictures, you must check them out. The church is just fabulous. I will add a link to her blog under the category “church” on my blog. Please go to her site and check out not just the church pictures but her whole blog. Thanks Sartenada, beautifully done.

Here also is a link.  http://sartenada.wordpress.com/2010/01/06/rock-church-iglesia-de-roca-eglise-de-roc/#comment-7191  please leave her a comment after you visit.

 Sunday morning we had to go, check out time. On the way home we went to “The Rock Church”. It was recommended to us by someone   one of our group met in Orlando. The Rock Church is next to a place that rents out helicopter rides by the half hour. so out front is a big red helicopter. The  head Pastor Lydia had an awesome service on repentance. The church itself is called “the Arena” because it is actually a small arena or coliseum. similar to the st. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, only smaller. The  entire building is huge, many functions going on for their parishioners. It does have a lot of stairs though. The service was one that we all received from. I highly recommend a visit to this church if you are in the area. See the links section for a link to it.
