Have you ever just felt CONFUSED about something that you thought God was telling you? I wrote HERE about Reckonizing The Voice of God, buuuuuuuuut sometimes you just get CONFUSED!!!  Like you really thought he was telling you ONE THING and then all of the sudden it just seems like he is telling you something else. Annnnnd your trying to figure out what is going God I don't want to DOUBT you, I want to believe you but now i'm not even sure WHAT you were telling me. You feel like your getting mixed signals from God, yet we all know that God is NOT the author of confusion. Their are no gray areas, there are no kinda-sorta-in-betweens with God!!!
If your feeling that way, don't feel bad, you are NOT alone!!!I have felt that way many times in my life, liiiiiiike...about TWO SECONDS AGO...seriously...LOL... And I was asking God recently, like, I don't get it, I'm not trying to doubt you, I really believed you told me something but then i'm not sure. WHY WOULD you be soooo clear...and then all of the sudden so evasive that I find myself questioning???? God's answer was sooooo simple to me...
"Because I want YOU to SEEK ME!!!"
Aaaaaaaaaauuuuuuggggghhhh...sooooo frustrating...buuuuuut so simple...GOT IT GOD!!!

Are you throwing a tantrum???

I was driving in my car a few weeks ago, listening to Family Life Radio, and the woman that does it at night is a single young lady, Joy McBride, and she said something that I just HAD to share with you all, because it really helped me annnnnnd most likely if it helped me there is someone else reading this that needs to hear this too...
Joy said on the radio that she had been driving through a parking lot earlier that day when something happened that really shook her up. She as she was driving a lil girl with her mom just ran out into the street in front of her car. She said stopped the car in time and the mom reached out, grabbed the lil girl and started yelling at her. She said the lil girl starts crying and she was getting ready to start driving again when AGAIN the lil girl just starts to RUN in front of her car!!!
AGAIN the mom REACHED out and grabbed her in time and this time even more yelling at her to not just run into the street. She said to her complete and utter amazement, the lil girl NOW just threw herself onto the ground into a full blown TANTRUM!!! She said it was just like this lil girl has NO IDEA that the reason her mommy is stopping her from running was to keep her from DANGER!!! It was to STOP her from getting hurt!!! She said she was just sitting there in her car like, WOW!!! Probably thinking something a long the lines of WHAT A BRAT!!!
Buuuuut she said as she was thinking about it, God really began to speak to her and tell her that she does THE SAME THING in her own life. He stops her from something and she starts throwing a FIT because she is NOT having her way and she has NO IDEA that God is just looking out for her!!!
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd at that very moment I was basically in my own lil tantrum myself so I was like WOW...OKAAAAAY GOD...I got it!!! You guys, we gotta STOP being SPIRITUAL BRATS!!! We've got to learn to except that when GOD STOPS us from something, he is just looking out for us!!! He is just PROTECTING US!!!!
That little girl couldn't understand, NORMALLY she could just go across the street, buuuuuuuuuut TODAY there was danger!!! Sometimes God holds us back because there is DANGER AHEAD!!! Sometimes its just not the right time because something needs to move out of the way and sometimes it is just altogether NOT his will because he has something else for us...WE don't know, because we can't see what he can see...we just have to TRUST HIM!
A well disciplined child knows, If Daddy says NO, the answer is NO!!! They may not like it, buuuuuuuuuuuuut they OBEY!!! We need to be well disciplined children of God. If God says NO, if God stops you, if God is holding you back, Don't have a tantrum...don't throw yourself on the floor in a fit...
Don't be a BRAT!!!

 That awkward moment when your sitting on the platform before church to praise sing, annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd you look out into the congregation and decide to wink at someone, annnnnnnnnnnnd EVERYONE buuuuuuuuuuut the person you winked sees and thinks you are winking at THEM!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!
I was telling this yesterday over lunch and my brother John was all like, okaaaaaaaaaaay soooooo WHO WERE YOU WINKING AT???? I'm like, ummmmmmm YOU!!!! He's like, OH I never even saw you!!! I'm like, uh yeah I KNOW!!! like DUH!!!!  
♥Mary Frances :)

Soooo COOOOOL!!!

I was driving home this morning from taking MJ to school and I just all of the sudden started thinking about Bro. Votaw, the man of God that got our family in the church in NYC!!! He answered the call of God and won Sis. Kathy, our neighbor across the street who witnessed to my mom and I was just thinking how he then taught my mom the truth, and I was just thinking about how if I could see him RIGHT NOW, I could just give him a BIG HUG!!! I LOVE THAT MAN for what he did for our family.
Then I got home and turned on HGR and heard a man talking about how he started a church in NYC that is still there today, I was like OH there are two Pentecostal churches in NYC now??? Then he goes onto say and since that time I've become a missionary to Asia...I was LIKE Aaaaaaaahhhh its BRO. VOTAW!!!!! I'm sooooooooo SIKED!!! (#385) Whereverrrr you are in the world right now Bro. Votaw, overseas or here in the U.S. I THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING THE CALL OF GOD!!!
Annnnnnnnnnnd if any of you all reading this blog post happen to have him preach at your church, you tell him that MARY GINTY, says HEEEEEEEEEEY!!!

Have I told you lately...
 that I LOVE ME????
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Okaaaaaaaaaaay sooooo i'm TOTALLY kidding...buuuuuuuut to a point, because at the same time, I'm kinda NOT!!! Soooooo I get a lot of flack about being IN LOVE WITH MYSELF...buuuuuuuuuuuut I would like to point a scripture out to everyone for a moment...
"... Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."
(Matthew 22:39)
In this scripture, we emphasize A LOT about us LOVING our neighbor, HOWEVER, we forget the part about loving our neighbor LIKE WE LOVE OURSELVES. After contemplating this scripture for a while, it leaves a question in my mind, IF God wants us to love our neighbors as we LOVE OURSELVES, can we REALLY LOVE others, when we have NOT even yet learned to LOVE OURSELVES???
 God commands us to LOVE OTHERS as we LOVE OURSELVES, however, does that mean that some people don't love others very much, because they don't truly love themselves? I can't help but think that some people don't love others very much, because they don't love THEMSELVES very much!!!
Have you ever thought about the fact that this scripture says that God WANTS us to LOVE OURSELF??? Now, I'm NOT talking about in a selfish way, where the ONLY person we think about is ME!!! Where we think that the world revolves around ME and we seek glory and honor. However, I do believe that God wants us to love ourselves in a way where we know our value as God's creation and we are able to have respect and regard for ourselves. "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:27) You were MADE in God's image, therefore you had BETTER have some respect for yourself!
We have to keep that balance of knowing our value as God's handiwork, and the astounding knowledge of knowing that we were made in HIS IMAGE...yet keep ourselves humbled in knowing that without HIS touch, we are NOTHING!!! On our own, all of our righteousness is as filthy rags..."But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.." (Isaiah 64:6) That without HIS forgiveness, we are NOTHING but sinners on our way to hell. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 4:23)
As I've said before HERE talking about self-esteem, I truly believe that the key to loving yourself, is in the way you love God. I have in my own life that it is in the times of spiritual dryness that I feel the worst about myself. I truly believe that the closer you are to God the better you will feel about yourself and the better you feel about yourself, the better you will treat others.
The Bible says
"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." (Matthew 22: 36-40)
I've been told before, that I am a very loving person. Its just the way that God made me, my heart just naturally goes out to people and connects with them. Someone once told me that they knew that God had sent them my way because I am a very loving person and God knows that they needed A LOT of love. I don't say this to brag on myself, its just truth, by nature, I am a very loving, affectionate and nurturing person...
I believe it all ties together, FIRST LOVE GOD ABOVE ALL ELSE, next LOVE PEOPLE...LIKE YOURSELF!!! The MORE YOU LOVE GOD, the MORE you'll love yourself, therefore THE MORE YOU'LL LOVE PEOPLE!!!
 Is the fact that I am a loving person in anyway correlated with the fact that I also have the ability to love myself??? I truly believe it does! I as a person, am literally, BIBLICALLY OBLIGATED,
as much as I LOVE MYSELF...
...which is quite a lot of loving WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT!!! ;)))
"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart,
 and with all thy soul, and with all thy might."
(Deuteronomy 6:5)

Sooooo my friends, Roy and Jordyn are engaged, I just call them Rordyn NOW...AHAHAHA... (Show Rordyn some love here!!!) anywayz, soooooooo happy for my good friends.....buuuuuuuuuut total Classic Mary Moment concerning them this past Friday!!! LOL
Okaaaaaaaaay sooooo this past Friday night at the Valley Pentecostal Church Easter Drama, I was walking down the aisle to my seat and I pass by Jordyn and Sis. Reckart, Roy's grandma and also basically THE COOLEST grandma in Pentecost...I LOOOOOVE THAT WOMAN...soooo I can't walk by them without saying Hi and passing out some Mar Bear hugs, soooo I'm hugging Sis.

Jus passing emmissions?!?!?!?

Just passing JUST GOTTA PASS EMISSIONS!!! Several weeks ago, while lying in bed, about to drift to sleep, that thought kept running through my mind. All you gotta do to keep your car is to get it to PASS EMISSIONS...if it doesn't gotta get it fixed or get a new car...JUS PASS EMISSIONS. I'm not trying to win any car races, i'm not trying to do any fancy tricks or show off my stuff, I just need a mode of transportation that is reliable, I just need something that will get me from point A to point B and as I lay there with this RANDOM thought running through my mind... I had to get up out of bed to write down the thought that began to formulate in my mind...
Sometimes that's how we are in our walk with God, we're JUST TRYING TO PASS EMISSIONS!!! We live with mindset of, I just wanna make it to heaven! Now don't get me wrong, I JUST WANT TO MAKE IT TO HEANEN TOO!!! There is NO greater goal that I strive for in this life than t make it to heaven. That is THE HOPE that we live for in this life...HEAVEN!!!
Everyone will always tell me, JUST MAKE SURE that your check engine light isn't on when you go to get your checked for emissions, because they will NEVER pass a car with that on...
Annnnnd we start to live with that same check engine concept in our own life. Just so long as there is no sin in my life, I'll make it to heaven and we're not striving for anything MORE...I just got to NOT SIN!!! I know we've got to continually live in a state of repentance,However, there is something in my heart that wants to do MORE than, just MAKE IT TO HEAVEN!!! There is a song that we used to listen to as kids, and the lyrics to that song said, ♪You can't get to heaven on roller skates, cuz you'll ROLL right by those pearly gates...♪ And it seems like sometimes that's how we are living our lives, just skating a long. We're NOT sinning, we've obeyed Acts 2:38, buuuuut we're NOT really do anything MORE for God, than JUST MAKING IT TO HEAVEN!!! There is SOMETHING in my heart that says, ITS NOT ENOUGH for me to do just be GOOD!!!
 I remember my brother's eating the dinner I had cooked one time, and I asked them how it was and they said, yeah it was good. And I said THATS IT??? JUST GOOD??? I wanted to hear them say it was MORE than just good, I wanted them to hear them say it was AWESOME!!! You know sometimes when I have someone take a pic with me and my friends, instead of asking, like A NORMAL person will ask, do I  look good? I like to playfully ask, DO I LOOK AMAZING??? Because there is something in me that's says, WHY settle for JUST LOOKIN GOOD, when I can strive for AMAZING??? Another time, I made these homemade twix bars and I asked the guys at my church to rate them from 1-10 and they came up with an 8.5! I was like, WHAAAAT??? Just an 8.5??? One of them explained to me, that's pretty good! A 5 is AVERAGE, so an 8.5 is definitely ABOVE average. But there is something inside of me that just isn't satisfied with just being ABOVE average...I WANT TO BE A TEN!!! Annnnnd when I finally reach a TEN I'm gonna start going for an 11!!!
The Bible says that Daniel had an EXCELLENT SPIRIT!!! "Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him..." (Daniel 6:3) I want to have an EXCELLENT spirit within me. I don't want to waste my life living for God. Its not enough for me to just have a GOOD spirit, I'm striving for EXCELLENCE!!!!  I don't want to look back at the end of my life and say, " least I'm saved!" At least I'm going to make it to heaven!!! Why should I wait till I get to heaven to experience the miraculous, when its RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!!! There is something in my heart that wants to do MORE than just make it to heaven!!! I want to share this gospel message with as many people as possible! I want to take souls to heaven WITH ME!!! I want to know God to the fullest extent that I can possibly know him here on earth. I want to dig deeper. I want to go further! I want to knock harder! I want to be EVERYTHING that God wants me to be. 
   In my own life I pray against a spirit of complacency, against a spirit of mediocrity! I don't ever want to get so comfortable that there is not a longing in my heart for something MORE. I don't want to become passive about the things of God! I don't ever want to forget what Jesus did for me, where he brought me from! I don't ever want to become so satisfied in my walk with God that I lose that hunger to talk to him, to be with him, to feel his presence! I don't ever want my life to be SO GOOD, that I begin to FORGET THAT THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME!!! I want to live with a dual feeling of homesickness for heaven and yet a desperate knowledge of the fact that there are people all around me on their way to hell.
There is a quote that says, When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everthing you gave me."I want God to use me to make a difference. I want to be a blessing to those around me! I want my life to bring him glory. I REFUSE TO JUST PASS through this life...Its NOT enough for me to just be passing the emissions of my heart, I want to soar. To one, not just slide my way into heaven, but to have an assurance of knowing that my time on earth is complete and the Lord is going to WELCOME me home...
"His lord said unto him, Well done, 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." (Matthew 25:23)

Weeeeeeellll anyway I was baby-sitting her and her lil brother last night, and I haven't seen them since the summer time. So Ella asks me what I've been up to and I'm like, Weeeeeeellll since I've last seen you I've been through three phones and a car...buuuut other than that, NOT MUCH!!! She's like WHAAAAT??? Just since the winter??? I'm like yeah, basically since November!!!
She's like WHAT HAPPENED!!! Soooooooo I'm telling her WHAT ALL happened with all three cell phones, 1. Selfie -dropped-phone-one-tile 2. Spilled Coffee 3. Never buy a phone off of ebay!!! She's like and what happened to your car??? I'm like WEEEEEELLLL... that would be a car accident... SHe's like who's fault? I'm like ummmmm...99.8% (Yes, I'm still holding onto the .2% that wasn't mine!:)  of it was MINE! She's like WHAT HAPPENED??? I'm ummmm... I crashed into a friend from church!!! She just starts laughing and shaking her head!!!
Then later on she was telling me about how she can NOT wait til she can start babysitting and that she is going to be the neighborhood babysitter!!!

A discreet tongue!!!

 Sooooooooo I was helping my mom with some cleaning off of her bookshelves and I came across this book..."30 Days to Taming Your Tongue!" I was like ooooo this looks kinda moms like OH you CAN HAVE IT!!! I was like ok WHATEV...haha!!!
Sooooooo I'm going through the book and each chapter is about a different kind of tongue, a flattering tongue, (Maybe a lil guilty, I tend to be a lil gushing and mushy at times...LOL...I've been reprimanded  by friends for this a time or two) a hasty tongue, a complaining tongue, a sharp tongue, a lying tongue, a argumentative tongue... soooo I'm going through reading them and there are 30 different ones and I'm just like nope that's NOT me! No! No! No!
Then I read The Loquacious Tongue and it means A MOTOR MOUTH...that just keeps going and going and going...I was like ummmm GUILTY...I mean I DO LOVE to talk buuuuut most of the time people DO enjoy hearing what I have to say...jus sayin...instead of motor mouth I prefer my words being described as a bubbling fountain of exhileration and joy!!!
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut THEN after that was, THE INDISCREET TONGUE...I was like uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhh Yeah that's DEFINATLEY ME!!! LIKE DOUBLE GUILTY...Discreet just isn't a good word to describe me...I can be too open and too honest...
Buuuuuuuuuuuuut then looking back on life I realized that I HAVE IMPROVED!!! When I was 15 I used to run around with a camera, chasing boys and screaming, I LIKE YOU!!! I would NEVERRRR do that now. Now, 15 years later,  when I see a handsome guy, I don't chase them with a camera, I WOULD NEVERRRRR DO THAT now!!! NOW I just search their name on google and google images... I just plan our wedding on pintrest, I jus say I COULD LOVE YOU in my mind, I text all my close friends about them annnnnnnd THEN I just DISCREETLY snap a pic on my smart phone without them everrrr even knowing it!!! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh YES...thank God for technology!!!!
Because of it, I have become SOOOOOO MUCH MORE DISCREET!!!
HAHAHAHA!!! J/K!!!  I REALLY AM WORKIN ON IT!!! Its probably the main Proverbs 31 woman thing that I need to grasp!!! "Discretion shall preserve thee..." (Proverbs 2:11)
♥Mary Frances
P.S. What about you all??? Anyone see THEIR tongue in this book??? I think I may have a few friends that need to borrow this book...oooooops there I go NOT BEING DISCREET!!!

Sooooooooooo AWESOME!!!

Okaaaaaaaaaay sooooo I have to share with you all a VERY AWESOME thing that God is doing!!! Weeeeeeeelllll...right after Conquerors's Conference this year God just randomly brought across my mind this boy named Elijah that used to church with a family from our church, The Cleveland's. Now the Cleveland's live CLEAR ACROSS town like practically an hour away, buuuuuuuut they used to live REALLY CLOSE to us. So this boy hasn't been to church basically since the Cleveland's moved, which I think has been about three years now.
And I thought you know, that boy is on the way to wear I go to pick up all the African kids, I should go over there, find where he lives and see if he wants to start coming to church again. BUUUUUUT then i'm like, OK I don't even know this kid, or his family and I never talked to him or anything WHEN he was coming with the Cleveland's because I was preoccupied with all the other kids that I was I'm thinkin in my mind...Yeah I should go...buuuut just kind of left the thought hanging!
Weeeeeeeeelllll that next week I went to visit the kids I have been bringing at their apartment complex and to bring them brownies. So a group of girls come over I'm just like talking to them or whatever and one of them was like, OH yeah so there is this boy at my school that says he knows Zachary Cleveland. I'm like Oh really, she's like, yeah, We were talking about him at school, a bunch of them have crushes on him, and we were talking about him and this boy named Elijah said that he knew Zachary Cleveland that they used to be neighbors and he would go to church with him!
I was like WHAAAAAAAT??? Like okaaaaaaaay WOW!!! That's NO coincidence...that these girls, that HAD NOT BEEN TO CHURCH IN ABOUT TWO YEARS, just happened to be talking about Zack at school and this boy Elijah would hear! I'm like OK DUH MARY GO TALK HIS PARENT'S AND INVITE HIM BACK!!! Buuuuuuuuuuut I'm still hesitating because I mean like, these people live in a really nice house and I'm feeling pretty intimidated, I'm NOT used to bringing kids that aren't living in government housing and talking to parent's that MAY ACTUALLY have a curfew for their child and want to know where they are. Soooo I keep thinkin I need to go, I need to go...
FINALLY one week I'm driving back from bringing the African kids brownies and I'm just like, DUUUUUUUUUUDE MARY, you KNOW that God brought that kid across your mind AND THEN those girls that were talking about Zack and he overheard....THATS NO COINCIDENCE...SOOOOOOO STOP BEING LAZY MARY AND GO!!!
So I pull into the Cul-da-sac where the Cleveland's used to live and I realize that I don't ACTUALLY even know where this kid lives!!! LOL Well I'm walking around, I knock on one door and a woman answers, I see that she has some kids in the background and she tells me that she just moved into the neighborhood so she is not to sure where anyone lives. Well after going around someone tells me where they live. I go to the door, ring the bell and HOLD MY BREATH...SCARED!!!
The dad answers, I introduce myself saying that I'm friends with their old neighbors the Cleveland's and I know that they're children used to come to church and I was just wondering if they would want to come again? Well the dad is really excited, he would love for his son to get connected with Zack again, he says they already have plans for this Wednesday but to plan on it for the next week.
Weeeeellll the next week comes around and Elijah and his lil sis start coming. After they've been coming for a few weeks, I start thinking about the one family that I had talked to when I was looking for Elijah, they HAD KIDS, I'm like, MARY since your ALREADY in this neighborhood, maybe you should go see if that family wants to send their kids as well...THEN I'm thinkin like, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO she's gonna think your crazy...buuuuuuuut God kept putting them through my mind...
Sooooooooooo after a couple of weeks, I knock on their door, a plate of brownies in hand!!! The mom kinda hesitates for a moment, just kinda looks at me, then smiles and says, OK. So the first week she comes just to check everything out and since then has been sending her older son Lawrence. She says that she really liked our church and eventually would like to start coming herself on Sundays.
NOW this past Tuesday I went to do my usual run of giving out brownies and reminding the kids that we have church the next day. Well time had gotten away from me and it was already a little after 8 so I decided that I would go to the kids in the cul-da-sac FIRST before all my African kids since these kids parent's ACTUALLY may have bedtimes..LOL...sooooooo I do to the cul-da-sac and the one boy Lawrence is coming out the door and he sooooo excited to see me as I give him the plate of brownies.
Then his mom comes out and she is like, OH MY SON WAS WAITING ON THE CURB FOR YOU TODAY, he's like MOM I know Mary is going to come today like she always does on Tuesdays and bring me a treat! I was like AWWWWWWW!!!! THEN his mom says, OH and just to let you know, a NEW FAMILY has moved in next door to us and they have a bunch of kids. I'm like OH OK, I'll have to go over there and meet them! She says, yeah you NEED TO, I already told them all about you guys and they are planning on sending their kids as well on Wednesday nights!!! I was just like OH OK!!!
Buuuuuuuuuuut inside my heart was just absolutely EXHILERATED!!!! Whoever would have thought that it would just spiral out to this???? That God would prompt my mind about a lil boy that came with a different family? That God would use a ridiculous crush on poor Zack!!!That God would use the African kids to bring back another kid? That that kid would be the key to other kids in a completely different neighborhood coming? That the mom of one of the kids would have already done the inviting of MORE kids coming for me??? ITS SOOOOOO AWESOME!!! God really does do THE COOLEST THINGS EVERRRR!!!
If your ever feeling like maybe God wants you to invite someone to church, JUST OBEY THE PROMPTING OF THE HOLY GHOST!!! Always,always, ALWAYS LISTEN TO THE HOLY GHOST!!!! It is ALWAYS HIS WILLto invite someone to church! To tell someone about Jesus!!! The Bible says that he is NOT willing that ANY SHOULD PERISH buuuuuuuuut that ALL should come to repentance!!!
I just can't wait to see what God is going to do NEXT!!!

Lying, stealing, disobeying annnnnnnnd....

Tonight in class Sis. Abbott was teaching the kids about how if they want to go up in the rapture they need to be filled with the Holy Ghost and she was saying that to have the Holy Ghost in you, you need to REPENT!
Well one of the boys, Prince raises his hand and says WHAT IS REPENTENCE??? So Sis. A is explaining repentance, its when you turn away from your old life of living in sin and you turn around and start walking in another direction living for God. And so she is explaining to them, but you have ask for forgiveness of all your sins and tell God that you are sorry for any bad things that you have done...
Like say I'm sorry for stealing or lying or disobeying your parents or for saying bad words and one of the other boys, actually ANOTHER PRINCE, YES, we have MORE THAN ONE PRINCE...BAHAHA...the other Prince says,
I was like WHAAAAAT??? Me and Sis. Sarah just like LOST IT LAUGHING!!! Like oh OKaaaaay...Sis. A is just like, YES, during repentance, that would ALSO be a good time to tell God sorry for MURDERING!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I don't know what's going on in the adult class, buuuuuuuuuuuut the kids class is ENTERTAINING!!!
