A Chance to Testify!Sharing: A TIDAL WAVE of “CHANGE” in THE CHURCH by Andrew Strom!

I read a great Post this morning by Andrew Strom, which the link is below for the post!

A TIDAL WAVE of “CHANGE” in THE CHURCH by Andrew Strom

After reading, I felt lead to share a summary of my testimony below. May it bless you.

I must testify, of a church, that is or close to what you describe. I was a bus kid to various churches growing up. However, I was in no way prepared for the church I entered as an adult. I who was starved for love, felt overwhelming love when I entered through the front door, it seemed the faces were all lite up, glowing, I felt a sense of peace. Something happened to me that day, as I hobbled on my crutches, sciatic pain from wreck, and took a seat. My entire blog comes from this one experience, an invitation. I saw a vision of “Rivers of Living Water” flow above pulpit coming down aisle, as the Pastor Willoby preached have you ever thanked God? That day I thanked God, trusted God, and that River of Living Water, flowed over me and all who stood in the aisle, I felt that translucent breathing water hit me and wash over me. I was told, I was slain in the holy spirit, which this Baptist woman had not heard of in her bus church riding days. When I opened my eyes, I not only thanked Jesus, this introvert openly praised him, and my tongue was no longer mine, as it gave utterance and I spoke in tongues. God is real. Seven days later after receiving Baptism of Holy Ghost, I was Baptized in Jesus name according to Acts 2:38. Oh, and one minor detail, it took me a week to realize, I had walked out free of crutches, left under the pew, without pain, permanent injury gone. I had been healed and didn’t even realize it, because I was too busy trying to tell everyone I knew about how God touched me, as I wasn’t the same. Blessings to you all. ❤️

HOLY GHOST FILLED WATER

Holy Ghost Filled Water!

My secret payer had been for God to restore joy. Then my Pastor, announced during a sermon, God was going to answer our secret prayers, no one else knew, except God. That Sunday as I drove home, the Lord gave me the following words…”Lay me down in that cool crisp water, Lay me down and Baptize me in that Holy Ghost filled water.” God was reminding me of the joy of my own baptism.

Then a sensation started in my belly and rose out of my mouth and it was pure sweet laughter, laughter so sweet and joyful, I knew it had come from God, I had not laughed with joy in so long, God blessed me profoundly I was laughing with God!!! God had given me a new song, and a laugh of victory!I was a child of God!

Psalms 2:4 He who sits in Heaven shall laugh, the Lord shall have them (Enemy) in dirision (Mockery or ridicule)!!! Thank you, Jesus!!!

We have the Victory, in our repentance and Baptism!

When you are baptized, and come out of the water, there is unspeakable joy, burden are gone, sins washed away! I cant even explain how good it feels, to know your sins are gone, as far as east is to west!

Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down and baptize me…..in Jesus name.

Waiting on God’s Promises!

Are you are waiting on the promises of God?

Rejoice and stand, your faith will sustain you, no matter how long it takes!

The devil wants us all to grow weary and tired. If the devil can get us tired, the devil will snatch your hope right out from under your feet. Before you know it, you will have quit believing on Gods promises.

Gods time isn’t our time. The mintue you stand on God’s promises and stand in faith , praying, the light begins to flicker, then burn .

Remember, no matter how long it takes “REJOICE” for God’s promises will come to pass. For Jesus is our Savior, Way-maker, Healer, Provider, Deliver, Counsel, Teacher and Friend. Oh how Jesus Loves us all! 🙌💞✝

In Matthew 7:7 (AMP),

Jesus tells us, “Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.”

How the Littlest Angel Turned Sobbing to Joy!

Re-blog of Christmas past story I wrote, may the story encourage, bring forth hope! Our answers are just a prayer away!

Christmas

The Lord God Almighty stood before his angels, looking intently at the human race. God’s voice roared announcing to his Warrior Angels he had a very important mission for them, that they were to descend upon the earth and find all the prayers of his faithful servants, who praised and worshipped him in the Christmas Season, his earthly birthday.

The angels that will live forever passed the powers as they parted allowing them to go down to earth in a spiraling mass of anticipation, seeking beloved saints, who had stayed the course and remained faithful. When the last and littlest angel passed the powers they turned and closed up the realm of heaven.

“Yonah” which means, “Dove” was the littlest angel of the masses who quickly flew to catch up with his fellow warrior angles, His heart-shaped face, was in deep concentration encased with reddish hair, and deep soulful blue eyes. Yonah was breathtakingly beyond beautiful, a creature blessed by God, for what he lacked in size he had in strength and heart. He paused in his descent, and hovered with the light fluttering of his wings, he looked in all directions and noticed how still and quiet it was, something was not right. With that thought he folded his wings inward and dove, he had to find her, maybe she was still praying, for he knew he could detect the weakest of prayers. Down he went.

Cindy was winding down and watching the six o clock news, her coffee had grown cold, oh, why in the world did she turn that dang TV on, there was never any good news unless you counted the weather report, and all it showed was a forecast of possible snow and ice. Her thoughts drifted to the last few years, she could not remember the last time she had felt joy, she remembered her episodes of sobbing and feeling of hopelessness, after her husband walked out and abandoned her, the rug being pulled out from under her when housing market started to falter and her boss laid her off, then the economy crashed and the bottom fell out, her savings went to help her daughter finish school and to help her with attorney fees in a heated custody battle over her granddaughter, now she was in her second extension of lay off, she had lost her home, had to give away all her belongings, her car engine blew, and she only had five weeks of unemployment left. During all this time she had been sick with a thyroid issue, she gained over fifty pounds, three fourths of her hair fell out, she had a cyst in her breast, severe acid re flux, she went from the person she recognized to looking like a stranger, then came the allergic reactions, inability to breath, then her doctor let her go as a patient, saying she was too difficult to treat, she could no longer focus, or keep her thoughts straight, she kept writing notes to herself so she would not forget what she needed to do or what she had said to someone in conversation, her family relationships became strained, her friends walked away without even looking back. Job-hunting was hopeless; she did not even have a college degree. There were no jobs to compete for, in one year she had, one interview. Sadly she had fallen away from her church family, not by her choice, it just happened slowly like her thyroid disease, at first she felt nothing unusual, then she was hit with a powerful punch, that near bought knocked her off her feet. It wasn’t just one thing but an accumulation of many things, hurtful things, things she did not know how to talk about, how to express, like a vine twisting up her body sucking the life out of her little by little, her family’s lack of understanding and indifference, having to go to the hospital alone, time after time, scarred out of her wits, barely able to breath, excruciating chest pains, inability to sleep, and the pain in her muscles that hurt her to her core daily. She felt betrayed, and buried so far into the pit of despair she did not know how to climb out. No one from her church had ever called her, instead, they just talked about her, called her backslidden, made fun of her weight, and snickered about her, and who she was before she found Christ. Jesus had wiped her sins clean, but her fellow man continued to judge her, and as hard as she tried to be a part of the church family, she was rejected and persecuted time after time. They were so worried about her outward appearance they never stopped to look at her inward appearance and the change God was doing in her life. That was when she began to visit other churches, looking for a family to accept her and love her. She let go of her family church, yet she remained faithful in prayer and her love for God.

The Spirit of Torment keep circling Cindy, giggling in evil ragged laughs, it was working, he just about had her where he wanted her if only he could break her will to pray, then she was his. No Matter how he tormented her, he could not touch her family as she prayed daily the word of God to cover them, it was just a matter of time, she would break, and in arid anticipation he rubbed his long bony fingers together, when all of a sudden he noticed, a gleam of light approaching, and he swiftly hid and was angered to see “Yonah” approaching, one of God’s Warrior Angels. The Spirit of Torment snorted in disgust, warrior indeed, besides Gabriel, he looked like a child, even though he was fully formed. Yonah was actually encouraging good thoughts to Cindy, what was he doing, he was ruining all his hard work, noooooooo, Cindy was getting on the floor, he and Yonah both heard her knees crackle and crunch, as her weight bore down, she bent over and put both hands out to lower herself to the ground, and promptly fell, pushed more like it, flat on her face.

Cindy laid on the floor, sobbing, in disparity, all she can mutter is one word. “Jesus”! Yonah continues to encourage her, and The Spirit of Torment becomes enraged.

Her sobbing turns to wailing and in the midst of her wailing “The Holy Spirit of God” moves in to intercede, and her tongue starts to flow in the heavenly language, she pours out her soul, slamming her fist from time to time “God, please do not forsake us, forgive us, Lord!” As the prayer pours forth from her mouth, Yonah snatches up the words and races toward heaven with her prayer in his hands, with The Spirit of Torment, hot on his trail. The Spirit of Torment pulls out his bow and aims and let’s go with his arrow racing through the air, piercing Yonah, who cries out and begins to fall, and The Spirit of Torment races past him, to help in the battle ahead.

Yonah examines his wound as he hides in the clouds, and decides to head home, the Master is waiting, and he does not want to disappoint the Lord. With grit and determination he heads to the heavenly realm and what he sees, is beyond his wildest perception, there are no Powers guarding the realm of heaven, and fearfully he approaches and looks up over the edge, and before him as far as his eyes can see is a great battle. Blue realms turning gray to black, between the Lords angels and the Angels who deserted God and now sided with the Destroyer. The battle is fierce, sword clashes against sword, shields are drawn, and held high to protect, and in the middle is a dragon called Legion, who is churning out battle orders harshly and has eight voices talking at once. Yonah begins to doubt himself, he is a warrior angel who is scared to go in battle, and in order to reach the Lord he must go through the battlefield, oh, where and how can he get his strength and a plan. Then he remembers Cindy, she is the answer, so he heads back to earth, and the demon is gone, thinking he has won, Cindy is laying on the ground spent exhausted and worn out, she says, God, you promised to never leave us, you promised in your word you would fight for us, and have mercy upon us, Lord, I have faith in your, Lord please defend us, and she continues to sob, God, I am here use me Lord, what can I do , I am nothing , one person, and Yonah smiles and slowly allows

Cindy to feel his pain, torment, and the heat of the battle, with an unexpected fierceness of rage, Cindy slams her fist into the ground and screams “NO MORE”, and the Holy Spirit of God begins to intercede, and Cindy rages into speaking in tongues, battling for what she knows not…….. Cindy prays as if her life depended on it. She pressed forward, and unseen to Cindy, Yonah, began to glow with a bright stars brilliance, and his wings surged with strength, and power filled his limbs and a sword dropped into his hand, and Yonah raced back to the realm of heaven and in the first blow the littlest warrior angel destroyed half of Satan’s army, as Yonah fluttered above the battle field, he dove to strike his next blow and the defected angels and demons fled, and Yonah was face to face, with Legion, and all eight of his voices ragged blasphemies at him , and with one swift blow, with the word of God, his sword, Yonah took off his head and the voices spoke no more, and the powers returned to the realm. Yonah swiftly gathered all the prayers that were dropped during battle and along with Cindy’s prayer ascended to heaven to the Throne and bowed at the Lord’s feet and presented all the prayers of the saints on Christmas Eve. The Lord God Almighty smiled and hugged the littlest angel saying “Job well done”! God then turned as the angels rejoiced and opened up the heavens and poured forth his blessings unto his children. Peace returned to the earth, at the same time it flooded Cindy where she laid, and she began to sing and rejoice in the Lord! Cindy stood and dusted herself off; her sobbing had been replaced with joy and she began to dance before the Lord!

In the year to come God ordered restoration to his faithful saints, with blessings beyond measure! As a child of God Cindy hardly understood all that had transpired, what gained the victory was allowing herself to be used, pressing forward and having faith and trusting the Lord even when she didn’t understand, what was important was she remembered to leave herself open to God’s calling.

The End!

Dear God,

At times I am amazed at the love you have for us, thank you for sending your son, so that we might be saved. Thank you for your priceless gift of love. Lord, we ask you to move through our great nation, a nation which was built “In God we trust”, on a solid rock foundation. Lord, our rock has been shaken as we as a nation moved away from thy precepts, forgive us, Lord. Lord, we bow to you in humility, and humbleness, we call on your holy name we pray and ask for your forgiveness and ask that this would be a new era that would heal our land and once more make us into a proud Godly nation united under you, our Lord and Savior. We ask and seek your presence in our government, our homes, our schools, our workplaces, our judicial system, our healthcare, and for the one true God to be present in our churches. Wake us up and stir us up Lord to do your calling and your will, give us insight, wisdom, to be spiritual leaders, and guidance to succeed. As in Joel 2:12- we are coming to you Lord with all our heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with morning, until every hindrance is removed and fellowship is restored. In 2 Chronicles 7:14- If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.

My father, let those who are tired come to you, the lost, the brokenhearted, the despondent, and the hopeless. I have heard it said that you love these people and you walk among them and save those who are crushed in spirit. I pray God for our protection, our family and our friends and our church, and these individuals that I lift up to you. I pray Psalms 91 and I plead your blood over them. I pray that you heal them and bind up their wounds. They cannot hear, they cannot see, they cannot speak, and they are blind, deaf and ignorant of your truth. I stand humbly before you God and ask you to open their ears, their minds, and their eyes. Some call them the scum of society, worthless, scavengers, unclean, and not savable. I see them as future saints adorned in crowns of beauty, gladness, and garments of praise. Lord, I know your truth is for every man, woman, and child. I pray for warrior angels commanded by you Lord, to set a hedge of protection around them, to guard them, so that when your vessels of saints come in contact with them and speak your truth and salvation the light in your vessels will not be your saints they see, it will be you, their Redeemer, their Savior, whose words will turn the lost to being found and the despondent to having hope, and the hopeless to be full of joy, all to be planted in faith of our Lord Jesus Christ with assurance of salvation. Save them, God, our doors are open, and we welcome them into your house.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Good bye Anger, Bitterness and Rage!

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.

 

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you (Ephesians 4:31-32).

 

 

 

 

NEED HELP? LOOK UP

 

 

Psalm 121 asks the question, “where does my help come from?”  There is chaos all around on earth! America is being shaken! Money won’t fix all your problems. Moving wont stop Covid-19, protestors, or calamity! New ideas or a political party, or who will be the next president won’t help you at the deepest levels of your life. To wear or not to wear a mask  is mute. You simply need God! LOOK UP!

Because these other false gods can’t bring peace to the soul, heal you or deliver this country! You must look above the mess and focus on Jesus!

Read his word, get into a devotion plan, fasten your eyes, heart and soul on Jesus!

Pray, say his name! Jesus! Lord help us!

Where is Jesus? Jesus is right here with us in our midst, waiting to hear you call his name! Call him! You are loved far more than you know by a God who formed you in your mothers womb and knew you before you ever arrived on this planet! You are his creation! LOVED BY A  MIGHTY GOD!

The psalmist in the bible then says — 

My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Only God !!!

 

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

What DOES THIS SCRIPTURE MEAN?

The Rock Can Bare the Weight!

God was listening and heard Desiree prayer, and God dispatched for one of his best angels and commanded “Because Desiree loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue her; I will protect her, for she acknowledges my name, she called me and I will send help; I will be with her in trouble, I will deliver her and honor her. “Sadly, Desiree didnot know God had sent help, she was hanging on by a thread of faith, she prayed and it remained silent. 

angel art black and white clouds

The only thing Desiree could do to fight the depression was to physically work in the yard. Thus far it had taken a week to relocate her moms favorite bird bath and the rock border that surrounded the bird bath. Desiree knew  moving it would be no easy feat, yet necessary as it was sinking slowly into the mud due to the heavy rains. Desiree’s depression was like the bird bath, she was sinking, and felt unutterably stuck. Desiree remembered  a scripture and spoke it out loud, declaring “I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.” The scripture when spoken out loud flowed with life like rivers of living water, crystal clear, breathing and moving through the atmosphere. The angel clapped in glee and saw a glorious beautiful day,  the deepest of blue skies, warm sun shining with a soft breeze that carefully lifted Desiree hair off her face cooling her down from the heat!

The angel circled around her protectively watching over her, lest she dash her foot on a stone. If only her surroundings could magically lift the heavy weight of sadness she carried, like a two ton chain, wrapped around her shoulders from life’s hardships. The angel had been ministering to Desiree nonstop, depression had been sent as an attack of the fallen one. God had commanded the angel to protect Desiree in all her ways. God had sent the angel to deliver Desiree from the depression and intended what had been meant for harm to turn it to good as it was a part of his plan to prosper her and give her hope. The thread of Faith Desiree held onto had been knotted on the end by the Angel.

Desiree  began the task of relocating her mom’s bird bath, by first pulling up the boulder rocks that were partially buried weighing from 5 to 20 pounds each!  Each rock felt cemented down, heavy and sucked down into the mud, where the rocks had been located for  over ten years around the base of the birdbath. Each rock she pulled up took strength, muster and determination. Desiree spoke over the stumbling rocks as she pulled each one out saying , anger be gone, sadness be gone, depression be gone, betrayal be gone, rejection be gone, lies be gone, spiritual attacks be gone, poverty be gone, heartache be gone working the rocks out of the miry clay dirt , then  several days later with many broken ragged fingernails,  Desiree pulled up the last rock and said attacks of the mind be gone.  Desiree felt an instant peace.  The angel circled rejoicing as Desiree spoke life into her circumstances. Desiree then began praying on the full armor of God, and she grew stronger. The hard work actually felt good! Then Desiree discovered the root of her problems as she pulled up the last rock, underneath laid a massive root which she pulled and it would not give. The root was strong and had been planted many years ago when she was but a small wee child. The root was harsh words spoken to her by the enemy, through her earth father, meant to destroy her, yet but for God!

Desiree understood now, her father wasn’t her enemy, the root of all evil (satan) was her enemy.  Desiree got her gardening tools and she began attacking that root with all her strenght and called on God asking for help saying she was weak and laid it at his feet, letting go and drawing in strenght sent by the Holy Spirit, digging up the root, the root was her enemy, Desiree dug and cut at the root for over eight hours, with root spanning twenty feet from the bird bath, and finally she came to the end of the root and ripped it out proclaiming in Jesus name ?I am delivered and healed.” The angels heard her declaration and an angel hit a cymbal declaring a “I Got The Victory” heard all throughout heaven!

Desiree studied the bird bath which was leaning like the “Tower of  Pisa” in Italy, half the pedestal was buried in the mud and the tulip basin was only a foot from the ground. Desiree decided to flip over the top water basin let all the dirty water,sludge and mud fall to the ground completely being emptied out, knowing the water basin  would bear the weight of the fall.  Desiree carefully lifted the tulip basin and flipped it over which allowed all the water and mud to run out, then she softly let it hit the ground. Suddenly time stood still and Desiree watched in amazement as all the filth came out of the water basin and without warning all earthly noise stopped and she heard her master and saviors voice speak to her causing her to fall to her knees, Saying ” Desiree, I allowed satan to shift you, but I prayed for you that your faith will not fail you, when you have turned back strengthen others!” Desiree weeped, in joy, her heavenly fathers voice,  precious in every way , had finally arrived. God kept his promise and didn’t forsake her, God prayed for her, he had heard her prayers. At that moment Desiree rested in the shadow of the almighty as his wings wrapped around her and gave her his rest!

 Spiritually Desiree blossomed into a warrior as she strategically  studied how to rebuild the  bird bath!  Desiree spoke out loud declaring “And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.” Desiree was filled with Holy Spirit and upon her declaration her words flowed like rivers of living water circling around her spiritually, physically , mentally and emotionally in the earthly realm and the heavenly realm. Desiree dug out the pedestal base of the bird bath, rolled it on its side to sit by the tulip basin. Then she began moving rocks to the new spot for the bird bath, hoping the harder surface would prevent it sinking, placing the bird bath pedestal where it wouldn’t sink in mud.

Lord behold when Desiree turned around to pick up the tulip part the water bath basin she discovered it weighed over 150 lbs.  Desiree could not lift it alone. Desiree liked completing her projects once  started but had to come to a halt take a break.

Three days Desiree studied the tulip basin , just as she was rebuilding the bird bath, spiritually she was rebuilding her relationship and walk with God! As night fell on the third evening Desiree studied the bird bath from the front screen door, whispering to God, help me, and suddenly she witnessed a digital line run on ground, go up the pedestal, and lean it on the biggest rock, then watched as the water basin was rolled in front, Desiree jumped for joy and ran out the door, excited beyond measure!

Desiree didn’t need her strength to lift the heavy water basin, she just needed faith! Desiree rolled the pedestal in front of the biggest rock, leaning it on the rock, then she rolled, the water basin in front , then slowly pushed upward connecting both pieces with hardly any effort. The bird bath was upright and the two pieces clicked into one. Then Desiree sat the Angel statue into the water basin standing tall and glorious, not realizing the guardian angel God had sent her was watching! Desiree glorified God giving him all the Glory, she was amazed that while rolling the pedestal she realized something incredible!

Psalm 61:1-3  Hear my cry, O God, attend to my prayer.

2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You; when my heart faints, lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3 For You have been a refuge for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

Desiree could not lift that heavy tulip basin for the bird bath it weighed so much but when she leaned it against “The Rock ” The Rock is Jesus Christ the Rock of salvation. What Desiree couldn’t do it in her own strength, but when leaned it over to the Rock what happened?The Rock lifted up so what she couldn’t do in her own strength, Jesus can do in his strength, for he is the Rock! That’s two stories in one and it had Desiree jumping! Jesus would restore Desiree!

God was spiritually showing her to lean on the “Rock.” Jesus is the Rock!  The rolling of the tulip water basin was a reminder that after three days Jesus rose and and only Jesus could move the stone, and an angel was left to meet the women who came to attend to the Lord. Jesus is the resurrection and life!

Desiree, wrote her story and shared it on a blog and millions read the story of her faith, trusting God. Seeds of Hope were planted, and it was like a mighty river flowed from the  bird bath spiritually  splitting into many rivers going all over the earth. The message was clear!

Trust God, Lean on God, Jesus is the Rock, God will not forsake us, What man cannot do , God is able, God hears our prayers, God Listens, God Speaks, and God Guides us!

The angel often meets Desiree at the Bird Bath, with the angel statue,  gazing as she quietly prays, listening and waiting on the Lord! Jesus is the Rock and daily Desiree casts her burdens upon the Lord, trusting God to work out all her problems. Desiree’s angel captures her prayers and swiftly carries them to heaven!

What satan had meant for bad, God turned around and used it for good! The Rock Can Bare the Weight!

 

I Had To Just Put My Feet On The Floor!

Today, I have to push myself to get out of bed. I was plagued with three different nightmares trying to sleep between 4:30 am and  9am when I awoke the first time, then 10am. Finally at noon I sat up,  swinging my legs over the edge of the bed, all I had to do was put my feet on floor. It was areal struggle. Mom was up till 4:30 am, she was finally sleeping, after her sun downing had kept us awake. Then all the stuff with the quarantine is getting to me.  Are you feeling discourage like me? Together as a Nation we are now in 40 days of Quarantine! Yet as an individual,  I’m feeling more like at 240 days quarantine , only leaving my house three times since September. My quarantine began when my vehicle was vandalized, determined a total loss. Geico didn’t cover. Second because in Jan. I was sick with Pneumonia, took till April to recover, I’m  blessed to be alive and then Covid 19 happens, and the goverment mandates we all stay home.

The difference between 40 days and 240 days is the isolation. I’m tired of streaming shows, I’m running out of things to keep me and mom busy, my heart and soul ache for my love ones who I miss dearly,  I will not be with my daughter on her birthday. I miss all the excitement and personalities of my grandchildren. I crave hugs, laughter and a good family gathering. I have also been caregiving my mom, she is my best friend and I am glad we have each other in this season, she is grieving loss of her soulmate/ best friend of 57 years. I can’t imagine her pain, it is fast approaching the anniversary of my Dad’s passing. I miss gathering at my church, worshiping God.

I’m not having a pity party, I like you am living through a part of history that is frightening. Things get to you, the news is to scary to watch, your crying for all those who got sick, praying it passes by your family.  Praying God have mercy on us all, I’m pleading blood of Jesus, not just for me , myself and my family , I’m crying out for the world. Our prayers need to be bold, courageous, crying out to God as we walk through this season in faith.

Today , I’m having hard time getting out of bed, it’s not my strength that propels me to sit up, for I am weak, tired, yet God says when I am weak his strength sustains me, the Holy Spirit encourages me, and as my feet hit the floor, and I go to my knees, the Lion of Judah gives me the power to roar out prayers, we all need to be roaring our prayers! God is always listening for his children’s cry’s.

Today let your feet hit the floor and roar ……God is listening and God will fight for us! Cry out, repent, get on your knees. Today the best thing I did was put my feet on the floor, God did the rest, Glory Hallelujah!

Calling All Moms!

Just had to share this awesome devotion today, as it spoke to my heart, because we moms tend to beat ourselves up over our mothering skills.

I WANTED TO BE A MOM. I wanted to stay home with these precious kids. I quit my job, surrendered my identity—the young, just-out-of-business-school-turned-professional. I believed my choice was narrow—just one or the other: Be a mom or work. (Are these my only choices, God?) I didn’t want to miss puddle-jumping, block-building, hand-holding, park-playing days like this one. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to make that decision. I am. I just didn’t know I would struggle so much. I didn’t know this would be so hard.

I thought I would feel different, God. I thought I would do this better—that I would be more organized and wouldn’t feel so depleted all the time. I said I wanted to stay home with my babies, and I know it is so amazing that I can. But here is what is hard to admit, even to you: I don’t like it as much as I thought I would. I’m afraid I’m not good at it. I’m even less confident now that we have two.

I’m going to mess them up, God. I know I am. I lose my temper, I raise my voice. And when I am not yelling out loud, I feel like I am screaming inside. I know that’s an exaggeration. That sounds so melodramatic, “screaming inside.” But no other words feel right.

Why do I feel so trapped, so stuck? I don’t know who I am, or what I love to do, or what it is that might be fun for me anymore. I should feel parenting is so fun, so completely fulfilling. I’m sorry that, right now, I don’t, and it isn’t. I’m sorry for who I am. I’m sorry I am so far from you and don’t know how to find my way back.

Can you help me find my way back?

DAUGHTER, YOU CAN BE ANGRY. I can take it. You can be sad. I can take that too. Keep running to me when you are sad and overwhelmed, and I will give you what you need to get through a day. You think that you are camouflaged, but I see all.

You can do this, you know. You can mother him and love him, and I will help you find your way. You ask me what you love? Who you are?

Let me tell you what I see: I see you. I see you in the early mornings when the baby is crying and you rise. I see you bend to scoop him up out of his crib, hear how you sing to him. I watch how you stumble, so tired, back to a rumpled bed.

May I sing to you now? May I sing to you, my daughter who is found?

Lift up your head, my darling. Lift up your head, and see me looking at you. I have made you with beauty. I have made you with strength. I have made you with tenderness, a soft heart for me that will sustain you. I sustain you. Keep your heart soft, and I will sustain you. Keep yourself vulnerable, and I will lift you. Keep yourself close to me, and I will show you, step by step, what it is you love, what it is in you I see.

There’s a lot coming, dear one. You are both a light that shines and a warrior in my name. How this looks—your life in me—will unfold as you trust me. In you, I keep creating, dear one. I love being with you as we partner in your work, bringing what is to come.

Yes, I see you. And I want you to begin this day again, knowing I see you, knowing I know you. I dance over you. My gladness overflows.

You are my dear heart, my bright flower. I father you and I mother you. I care for you, and you rise again, letting me lead, letting me take charge, letting me be the door you walk through each day when you are lost and you are wondering how, again, you can face another day.

You don’t need to face another day alone. You can greet each day with me. You can rise with me, stay with me, listen for me. In the creak of the high chair at lunchtime. In the jingling of toys as Jonathan and Lucas laugh and cry and play. In the hush or whimpers of the night.

My strength is enough for you. My presence is with you. My Spirit is in you.

I sustain you, never leave you. There is good coming.

There is good right here.

Pray: 

Father, you are unashamed of me—your love is wild and perfect. I love how you have made me. I love how I don’t have to hide from you, no matter what I am feeling. You give me a voice to call out to you, and you answer. You reveal to me yourself, showing how you are present with me, how you care for me, how you hold me and never let me go. I have what it takes to love those you’ve given me to love. I have what it takes to get through this day, holding your hand. Help me to do all these things, knowing I stay with you. In your name, Jesus, Amen.

Friday Thoughts!

Hello Readers!

I’m just sitting here, drinking coffee,  thinking about you and just hoped you took time to enjoy this  beautiful glorious day outside our homes! Look at what that the Lord has given us! Such Glory on earth!

Use your day wisely, be Kind and share the Love of  Jesus with everyone you come in contact  with today, even the ones that make it hard to do so as they need Jesus just like all of us!

I watched a red headed wood pecker, or what looked like one in my front yard, squirrels playing, little swarms of bugs that looked like dust fairies floating in patterns and a Beautiful Blue Bird came by to sing! Way too fast for my camera phone, yet I got pics of all spring plants popping up below.

 

Have a great day and be blessed.

DREAM

I recently had a dream appear in my news-feed on Facebook, that occurred a few years ago. I love it when memories show up, especially dreams! I had this dream in 2014. Now it is 2020, and hard times, yet it is a dream of good tidings and abundance, a reflection fro the past to give Hope for the future! Keeping a dream journal is a wonderful activity! I highly recommend it! Blessings!

 

Dreams

Dream ~I laid down and fell into a deep sleep, when I awakened I was getting off a hand made straw mat, in a  foreign land that was very green, vibrant and beautiful.

 

The first thing I noticed was that no one spoke my language.  I was happy and smiles at everyone.  I felt very calm as I  began walking down this sandy road , the people were so nice greeting me and gracious!

I turned into a field that was growing an abundant crop and I started to call to this little child, who was between two and three years old, at the end of the field.

I cooed until the child came into my arms and hugged me. The child could not understand my English, so I began to speak in tongues, and the child understood me through our fathers heavenly language.

I was so happy twirling this child around.  I saw all my family, my daughter, all my grandchildren and my son in law. I woke up laughing full of joy!. 🙂 This dream was unusual so I had to share!

 

 

 

 

Angels

Today I rounded up the energy to begin landscaping and cleaning our front porch and back deck! I have inside house crazies going on, and I have done several projects while quarantined. The outside was a nice change.

I worked on getting as much pollen off the front and back porches , even with a broom , there is still a fair dusting left. It rained here tonight pretty hard , I am hoping pollen will be gone soon!

I once again took pictures, don’t judge as I am still working on these projects, I have edging to do, along flower beds, painting steps, and transplanting baby plants from the back garden.

I am very as Angels showed up again, I have no other explanation for the array of colors and lights that appeared in my back yard , first, then two days later, my front yard! I believe God is hearing our prayers, and these pics give me Hope! Blessings to All! Please comment, what do the images look like in your opinion.

We Give This World Back To God

My Heart is Crying, listen and believe!

Back To God

Reba McEntire

Oh have you looked around
Have you heard the sound
Of Mama’s cryin’
Or do you turn away
When you see the face
Of the innocent dyin’
In these darkest days
Are you not afraid
That it’s too late
You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg and plead
Gotta keep on praying
You gotta cry, rain tears of pain
Pound the floor and scream His name
‘Cause we’re still worth saving
Can’t go on like this and live like this
We can’t love like this
We gotta give this world back to God
Have you lost a love?
Do you feel like givin’ up?
Has your heart been broken?
Are your kids okay?
Will they come home safe?
Do you lie there hoping?
You can make a wish, you can knock on wood
Oh it won’t do no good
You gotta get down on your knees, believe
Fold your hands and beg…

Tuesday Thoughts! TRUST IN YOU!

 

I believe God is have hearing our prayers, may you trust his timing, God will heal our land and save our planet.

God knows all our needs even before we ask. Let us ask the Lord this morning for strength, praising God we have been given this day, with breath in our bodies! We give thanks for what we have and are grateful. Is he not the Lord our God, who takes our right hand and says to us , do not fear, I will HELP you!

God says call to me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. Every-time we stretch our faith God does miracles. It’s easy to have faith in light, in the darkness, we walk by faith itself.

When God is sought in desperation, he responds to soul stirring prayers. Which result in answered prayers. Does God not say; For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. 💯❤️

Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for hearing our cries and answering our soul stirring prayers, thank you for the strength you provide to us today. God may we cast all our concerns and fears upon you, for you are able to help in our time of need …………………………………………….

“Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” Psalm 55:22. God loves us beyond our wildest imaginations. We must trust that in our muddy mess, He is in the process of showing us how to rely on Him for everything

Lord you say ” Come to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest!” Father not only do we come to you, we ask you to forgive us our sins, to enter in our homes, hearts, mind and soul, we seek refuge from you in the days ahead that you will give us shelter from the most high covering us with your wings protecting us all, pleading the precious blood of Jesus upon us all, lifting a hedge of protection over and around the human race spiritually , physically, mentally and emotionally believing God will answer our cry’s, standing in faith, holding onto Hope, believing the best is yet to come! We trust in You, In Jesus name! Amen!

WE TRUST IN YOU JESUS

Binding Prayers!

The Word of God tells us that “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous person avails much” (James 5:16).

Deuteronomy 32:30 gives us a glimpse of the effect that our prayers have in the spiritual realm by revealing to us that one person’s prayer has the power to put one thousand angels to flight; and two people’s prayers can put ten thousand angels to flight! Imagine that!

This revelation is powerful. If every person reading this post bind their prayers, then there is a probability that over 2,000,000 angels are in flight!💖

Imagine what a group of praying people can do binding prayers; now imagine a church full of  folks; now imagine a stadium full, and then a nation full of God’s people lifting up prayers on behalf of the people. Oh my God, no enemy in hell even stands a chance of winning! The angels of God will flood the heavens, the atmosphere, and the earth- all because God’s people prayed.

a1

Heavenly Father,

Tonight I lift the world to you, praying for Hope, Faith, Love and Courage as we stand in the face of a pandemic. I pray for Peace in the Chaos, Courage in face of Fear, and I pray for Faith to get us through. I pray for revival and for salvation of lost souls, I ask for protection over family and friends, the human race, I ask for healings though out our bodies, deliverance from strongholds, for saints who lost thier way to come back home,  I ask for supplies to the poor, medicine for those in need, please bless our Christian troops with necessities, strategic wisdom, praying for reinforcements, success of other missionaries, unity and harmony in the ranks, encouragement of togetherness, kindness, compassion and empathy, discernment in tough decisions, knowledge to know and discover your will, to establish a closer relationship , to know you, our God, on a more personal level, gaining understanding of the comprehension of the love of Christ. May we all be Believing and having Faith with sense of assured Hope, Strength and Endurance, that our Faith not be destroyed, yet grow in leaps and bounds, not fall into temptation. We believe you God that you  would complete a good work, forgiveness of our sins, granting protection from the evil one, as we plead the blood of Christ, that in the spiritual realm Gods army establish leadership in the outposts, raising of the dead, miraculous signs, deliverance, casting out of demons, healings, healing of wounded comrades, signs and wonders, boldness in proclamation, God would direct the use of the sword, God would vindicate his people in their cause, fullness of the Holy Spirit, God would exalt his name in the world, gospel would speed ahead and be honored,and God would extend his kingdom in the world. We submit and surrender Oh Lord asking you to show mercy in your loving kindness! Son of David, have mercy on us children of the earth, In Jesus name. Amen

Hang On

Word of Encouragement- I know God did not put you in the valley to leave you.

His promises are in written on your heart.

You must believe, trust and have faith that God has gone before you.

Maybe you feel as if you are at the end of your rope! Hear me when I shout “HANG ON” The Devil, is a liar and a thief. That last thread you hang onto, I believe God will use it to bring you forth out of the valley.

Disturbances……That Rock Our Core!

Her insides were twisting into twenty pound rocks, hands and feet were going numb, the wave was coming fast, too much negativity, abuse out of control, cries for help fell on deaf ears…..the pain unbearable, air hunger so severe she thought she was dying, palpitation that echoed a heart attack, how ….her mind couldn’t even wrap around the truth that were unfolding, why would they betray her , go to such lengths to destroy her, this wasn’t about right or wrong, or disagreements settled over glass of wine, these were dark secrets rising to the surface, and she was screaming as her worst fears unfolded in front of her, these were betrayals purposely hidden and buried deep, activated in the darkness against her knowledge…… breath , just breath, breath, you have got to survive this, drawing her breath in slow and easy , exhaling out in control focus, holding her anxiety rock, sipping water, shattered tears free falling, gut wrenching sobs erupting into screams of hell, and it was silent, no one came, no one heard the anguished desperate cry for help, she was alone, all alone.

She had to admit she couldn’t handle the disturbance and the disturbance began to spread from her, making a disturbance to others.

What would you do if your soul had a disturbance tearing you apart? Pray, yes that is a start, yet in these times, while I believe God hears all prayers, in a disturbance , we need to get God’s attention,  we need to forget, lady-like manners, or what others will say or think! We cant calmly sit by, it goes against our common sense, while all we know is being disturbed to core of our soul, the beginning of help is realizing we cant fix this disturbance, conditioned to be quiet, don’t speak unless asked, keep your thoughts to yourself, oh you know how she is…..crazy B*tch, exaggerator, never knows when to shut her mouth, if we wanted your opinion we’d ask for it dumb*ss.

OUR DISTURBANCES NEED GOD!

Disturbances are war, famine, abuse, broken hearts, disease, faltering economy, homelessness, broken marriages, addiction, mental illness, crimes, manipulation, betrayals, false news, war on families, war on christens, loss of rights and freedom, severe weather, earthquakes, flooding, devastation……………..

We need to be absolutely persistent  with our disturbances, until we get a face to face with God, we need to yell , scream. Scream  like its half time at super bowel, or its a home run. Scream like your life depends on it.

When Jesus asks what do we want him to do about our disturbances confronting us, what will you say, will you speak meekly like a mouse or roar with the courage of a lion?

When Jesus asks us what we want him to do about the problem, roar with courage and boldness about this disturbance confronting us and you must believe when you ask knowing it is an absolute impossibility without Jesus.  Do not limit Jesus, as he works in the supernatural and will do the impossible if you ask him. Isn’t God  the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

Our human nature has a tendency to limit God, speaking in negative monotones, never asking for what we truly want out of fear, It is our very own worry, that keeps us from breakthrough, scarred we aren’t loved, fear of rejection, not being worthy.

The disturbance has us going through Hell and we want to get out, don’t stop, look forward , put your focus on Jesus and NEVER EVER GIVE UP!!! That is not an option.

If you stop while going through hell, its over, you need to pray, push, shout, scream, claw your way out!

God works in the supernatural, not in our human common sense theories.

We need the boldness and courage of a lion, we need to press forward! We need to let our fears go and just ask for the help by surrendering all the disturbance to God, by giving it all to God!

Be persistent with your prayer, get on floor , face down and pound your fists, roll over and scream, play loud worship music, dancing  in spirit, wave your hands, jump up and down. Loudly proclaim scripture, don’t worry if others call you crazy, its not them that you need, it’s Jesus! A Mighty move of God!

And there will be those who will ask, ” well why wouldn’t my calm reserved prayer be heard?” I’m not saying it wouldn’t be heard, I’m saying we are asking for the impossible, If its not impossible its not a true disturbance.

Luke 18:39 – An example is the man in Luke who was blind from birth, crying out loudly and insistently as Jesus passed him by shouting and yelling, persistent in being heard, he desperately wants his healing, yet his healing is an impossibility on his own, yet when he surrenders it all to God, people are rebuking him and telling him to shut up, the blind man does not give up or give into what others are saying and insistently yells as Jesus passes by, “Jesus , son of David, have Mercy on me! Jesus pauses and  ask” What do you want of me? The blind man says “to be healed!” What motivates  his irrepressible clamor for healing? FAITH! He ask Son of David, to have mercy and is expecting a miracle through faith that God will heal him. The blind man is energizing and vocalizing his faith,  thus Jesus question pinpoints exactly what the blind man needs. The blind man wont take “no” for an answer, he goes ballistic, in his cry for his healing, praising God and glorifying him. Jesus instantly heals him!

“Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.” (18:43)

Clearly the blind beggar was going through hell, when all was against him, he pressed forward, having faith that God would give him a miracle and spoke it as if it were so, energizing and vocalizing his very deep need, this disturbance that he couldn’t fix himself.

The young woman in the beginning of my post who thinks she is all alone, she has faith, she prays , sadly she doesn’t believe she is worthy to get the miracle, succumbing to all the deceit and lies around her, shaking her to her core, her disturbance going out, luckily God has a back up plan, when her faith and prayers reach him, Jesus asks the woman “What do you want?” the question gives her clarity, understanding, Jesus is letting her know she is worthy to receive the miracle, why else would he ask the question?

Praise God! You cant see me, but I’m running the aisles glorifying God!!!!!!!!

Prayer & Mercy for your Enemies!

God tells us to specifically pray for our enemies, we all have enemies, knowingly and unknowingly. How you handle them, shows your spiritual growth. When you pray for your enemies it draws God in by Faith.

I just want the adversary to know, I love my enemies.

In the beginning, trying to pray for my enemies was awful, I did not want to pray for them, they had hurt me badly, trying to destroy me, with words, actions, attacks and it took alot of work in me, through the love of Christ, before I was able to pray my first prayer for an enemy. Then through the guidance and love of the Holy Spirit, God showed me how to look past the actions of my enemies, and to look at their heart, seeing they are really just in pain, bruised from life , needing the Love of Jesus!

Jesus worked a miracle in my life by getting me to pray for my enemies, teaching me how to love them.

In my own personal situation, distancing myself from those who hurt me and going silent, gave me quiet time that was needed for God time, reflection and healing. Sometimes, you have to remove yourself from the person, in order to heal yourself, then you can begin to pray for that individual. God does something remarkable, he brings peace, love, forgiveness and restoration to both parties. God is always on time. So today, stop and pray for those who come against you, as if they were your most cherished love one, and watch a miracle unfold. Love you all!

PRAYER

Dear Lord

My enemies are hurt people, who are broken, who heart people , who are just as overwelmed by life events , just like me.

Hurt people hurt people.

It is written “It is a good thing to give thinks unto the Lord , and to sing praises unto thy name, Oh most high:

Lord today I pray MERCY for us all, that you  “to show forth your loving kindness in the morning and thy faithfulness every night.”

Let our prayers become “upon an  instruments of ten strings, and upon psaltery, upon the harp with a solemn sound.” Our prayers would be beautiful music to your ears!

“For thou Lord, hast made me glad through thy works; I will triumph in the works of thy hands.” You are the master potter and we rejoice.

“Oh Lord, how great are thy works!and thy thoughts are very deep.” I can only imagine your thoughts are as deep as the ocean and as far as the constellations of the heavens. Even the stars were an afterthought of extreme beauty.

I pray all enemies would come to know you as their Lord and Savior, that they would repent and seek a relationship with you, and experience the miracle of Grace.

May our enemies be blessed coming in and going out, may all their needs be meet  on this day, may they have food , shelter, clothing and a place to lay their head and be safe.

May our enemies be in excellent health , strong, hard-workers, may all their families prosper and know God.

May all plans, schemes, strategics of the enemy , generational curses, evil curses, lies of the enemy be broken, cancelled, voided and rebuked through the wonder working power of the blood of Jesus.

Lord I  understand, people aren’t our enemy! Our enemy is Satan and the attack is spiritual in source and nature. That people are used as pawns in his attacks against each of us. These children of God who are saved and unsaved need prayer and protection. The enemy is Satan not people.

The cause is a spiritual agenda that wants to stop you from doing the things you are doing that is infringing on the kingdom of darkness.

Equip us Oh Lord through Prayer, Fasting and reading of the word of God. Let go and let God battle for us and raise a standard when the real enemy comes in like a flood.

Lord may we draw on your strength, when the battle gets hard, may the Holy Spirit lift and carry us, lest we dash our foot on a stone and when Satan comes like a roaring lion to devour, may we open our mouths and let the ROAR of God and his words be heard, unleashed, as our redeemer draws near! For God is for us, and will never forsake us! May God be our Strength always! For God is Victorious! The battle belongs to the Lord!

Amen!

Luke 6:27-36 New International Version (NIV)

Love for Enemies

27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

My Thought!

If you have breath in your body you are blessed with the day you are living in at the moment. Use it wisely. Speak positive. Speak life. For those that curse you, forgive them. Pray for them. Talk to God throughout the day, he loves to hear your voice. Hard times build your character. How you react builds your integrity. Turn from unwise talk and fill your mind with the word, sing, dance and worship God. Your focus must stay on God not on people. Last of all…don’t judge. Instead share a smile or kind word, pray and help encourage someone so that they may inspire to HOPE once again. Blessings……

A Prayer for the Start of a Great Year! 2020

Dear God, I just want to thank you for everything that you are doing in my families lives.

Lord, you know how challenging this world and relationships can become, the enemy tries to make me feel all alone and defeated. 

I thank you God for the hidden strength and courage you gave me and continue to give me.

When I run off course looking for quick fixes, you just show mercy and forgive me steering me back on course, you do not turn away from me, instead your love fills me and I hear your whispers once more infusing me the will to carry through.

God, you remind me of your love and in that LOVE is rest from the Storm, I can always trust in you.

O Lord, even when those closest to me let me down, I am able to keep moving forward because I know that you will never let me go.  You steady my heart when it feels like it is breaking into a thousand pieces.

May I continue to trust in you, O Lord, and never think otherwise. May the hearts of my Family and generations to come always find refuge in you, O God.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

 

 

I LOVE A TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS!

Re-post due to Web glitch!

Autumn came and left with a blink, sometimes flaunting her fiery leaves and other times shyly waves good-bye in one big wind storm.Christmas is now only fifteen days away and an icy cold front, possibly snow, is already headed our way. Candles, firewood, lots of treats, all collected in case we have no heat.

2 candle
While small children dream of Christmas thoughts in their heads of Rudolph, Frosty and Great Saint Nick. Older folks just laugh and declare Christmas is about Baby Jesus and he made Ole Saint Nick!

Bible stories from ages past,still declare the same truth at last, Jesus came as a babe in a manger, as the barn animals gazed, it was the three wise men who fell in a daze,before them was a holy sight not seen,a child so holy they fell upon their knees. Christmas is the celebration of Jesus Christ, Son of God, a King!

The ultimate gift of Love, God wrapped in the flesh, born to a virgin, who came to give us life. God has never forsaken us! Every year my tree, is a remembrance of that unconditional LOVE!

Leviticus 23:40 says – And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
Some believe this verse means the tree isa celebratory symbol based on the worship of God!

When families gathers, Oh what a feast, turkey, ham, bread, pie, cakes and all kinds of delights, nothing in comparison to our “Future Kings Feast” that is yet to come!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A JOYOUS HOLIDAY IN LOVE OF OUR KING, SWEET JESUS!

🎀My Christmas Prayer🎀

🎄Christmas Prayer🎄
My father, in Jesus name, let those who are tired come to you, the lost, the brokenhearted, the despondent, the sick and the hopeless.
I’ve heard it said that you love all people and you walk among us and save those who are crushed in spirit.
This Christmas I pray for LOVE, for LOVE covers a multitude of sin. I pray God for protection, over our family , friends and our church. I lift up the crushed in spirit to you. I pray psalms 91 out loud, speaking your word so it may go forth,

1xmzs
Praying and pleading your blood over crushed in spirit. Praying that you heal them and bind up their wounds. They cannot hear, they cannot see, they cannot speak and they are blind, deaf and ignorant to your truth. I stand humbly before you God and ask you to hear our prayers bind together to open their ears, their mind, and their eyes. Some call them the scum of society, worthless, scavengers, unclean and not savable.
Lord weI see them as future saints adorned in crowns of beauty, gladness and garments of praise. Lord we know your truth is for every man, woman and child. We pray for warrior angels commanded by you Lord, to set a hedge of protection around the lost crushed in spirit, to guard them, minister so that when your vessels of saints come in contact and speak your truth and salvation the light in your vessels will not be your saints they see, it will be you, their Redeemer, their Savior, whose words will turn the lost to being found and the despondent to having hope, and the hopeless to be full of joy, all to be planted in faith of our Lord Jesus Christ with assurance of salvation.
Save them God, our doors are open, and we welcome them into your house.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Malicious Mischief

Wow, Malicious Mischief! There is a part of me that is afraid to write this story, as it is very personal to me. Have you ever wondered what puts evil in peoples heart, to imagine and then commit crimes against others! You may be shocked to know, in my case, I made someone very angry. That person or persons set out to teach me a lesson.

 I made a promise to share my story earlier today, with fellow blogger STU. On September 18th, I was headed to emergency room, suffering from dry eye syndrome, had rubbed my eye to hard and injured myself. Two miles from the ER, in bumper to bumper traffic, my Ford SUV made a funny noise and I felt that sinking feeling, I whispered”Lord, please don’t let me break down.” I made it into the right turn lane coasting into an Exxon station, turned off the car. The car died right there, I just didn’t know it yet. I got out checked everything under the hood, all fluids were level, car didn’t overheat, no burning smell, nothing leaking. I tried to crank the car; nothing, no turn over.

I had not had a break in five months, and that day I rejoiced on the side of the road, that I was stranded, finally I was alone. It was a chance to clear my head, relax, talk to God and a very good friend.  My rejoicing was short lived, as I realized I had no way home.

Eventually, seven hours later I got a ride and went home. A sweet friend paid to tow my car to a mechanic shop for an estimate.  The next day, the mechanic called and told me there was sugar, a foreign like substance in my fuel pump, $1000 to repair. I just cried, I had no money. I couldn’t wrap my head around why someone would do this to me, wasn’t I going through enough?

I cried, prayed and gave it to God, my friend who towed the car offered to help fix it if the mechanic guaranteed it could be fixed. Work began on the car and I was hopeful and feeling blessed someone was helping me.  Forty seven days later, my mechanic quits his job and I am told to remove the vehicle after I pay the bill, vehicle is still not running.

Around this time a stranger shows up at my home and informs me, that I need to watch my back. He overheard a conversation by a third party about someone vandalizing my vehicle, shocking me by asking “Did I get the sugar out of my tank?” How did this stranger know my personal crisis?  The stranger continued to relay what he had heard, which lead him to come to my home as he felt this person was out to get me for not giving a ride. My insides felt like they had been ripped open, I just couldn’t believe someone destroyed my vehicle because I said no to a ride.

Then my friend tows my vehicle to a master mechanic for a second opinion, and I learn that all repairs  by the first mechanic were unnecessary, as the master mechanic stated, “This vehicle died the day it shut off, the engine is locked up, by foreign substance, you were mislead and this is what you need to get your money back,” I’m happy to report, I am getting reimbursed all the repair bill and two towing bills back. This money goes back to the friend who was kind enough to help me.

Ive lived with the knowledge of the vandalism betrayal for over a month. I still don’t have a running car and now reality is setting in, what am I going to do with out a vehicle? The vandalism cost me my only vehicle, my transportation, my freedom to go do errands, buy groceries, get meds, visit my daughter, grandchildren. What was I going to do? Why would some one do this to me?

My heart just couldn’t take another person saying “What in the world did you do to make someone so angry at you?” I was looked upon like an evil woman and it wasn’t a good feeling, crushing my heart. My crime that caused me the loss of my vehicle, was an act of tough love, Sadly, I had told someone “no” to a ride, because I cant partake in anything that leads them to drugs, or that would jeopardize my freedom! Now I sit here , stranded in the country, mourning my dads death, care-taking my mom, no vehicle, siblings against me, persecuted, pressed down, depressed, its the holiday’s, I’m broke finding out people could care less. I’m missing doctor appointments, cant runs errands, cant get to grocery store or take mom for a Sunday ride. People will try to control you, or take advantage of you in your weakness……………….they think they got me. Did I learn my lesson, my betrayer sought to teach me after this malicious mischief of vandalism?

 Yes, I learned my lesson, I choose how I react to evil.  I choose to Rejoice, I just start laughing, because I had a revaluation, after letting go of it all, My  God,  owns all the cattle on the hills, I believe I have supernatural favor with God, I believe God is going to move in all my circumstances, as I had to be brought down to nothing, so that when I rise, God gets all the Glory!  I cant wait to see God move, speak your future as if it already is, your tongue has power of life and death, speak life, watch blessings flow! I believe the best is yet to come, I don’t know how God will do it, I just know he is able, I will continue to make Beautiful memories with my mom, and watch God work. Never Give Up! Blessings!

 

 

 

How the Littlest Angel turned Sobbing to Joy!

The Lord God Almighty stood before his angels, looking intently at the human race. God’s voice roared announcing to his Warrior Angels he had a very important mission for them, that they were to descend upon the earth and find all the prayers of his faithful servants, who praised and worshipped him in the Christmas Season, his earthly birthday.

The angels that will live forever passed the powers as they parted allowing them to go down to earth in a spiraling mass of anticipation, seeking beloved saints, who had stayed the course and remained faithful. When the last and littlest angel passed the powers they turned and closed up the realm of heaven.

“Yonah” which means, “Dove” was the littlest angel of the masses who quickly flew to catch up with his fellow warrior angles, His heart-shaped face, was in deep concentration encased with reddish hair, and deep soulful blue eyes. Yonah was breathtakingly beyond beautiful, a creature blessed by God, for what he lacked in size he had in strength and heart. He paused in his descent, and hovered with the light fluttering of his wings, he looked in all directions and noticed how still and quiet it was, something was not right. With that thought he folded his wings inward and dove, he had to find her, maybe she was still praying, for he knew he could detect the weakest of prayers. Down he went.

Cindy was winding down and watching the six o clock news, her coffee had grown cold, oh, why in the world did she turn that dang TV on, there was never any good news unless you counted the weather report, and all it showed was a forecast of possible snow and ice. Her thoughts drifted to the last few years, she could not remember the last time she had felt joy, she remembered her episodes of sobbing and feeling of hopelessness, after her husband walked out and abandoned her, the rug being pulled out from under her when housing market started to falter and her boss laid her off, then the economy crashed and the bottom fell out, her savings went to help her daughter finish school and to help her with attorney fees in a heated custody battle over her granddaughter, now she was in her second extension of lay off, she had lost her home, had to give away all her belongings, her car engine blew, and she only had five weeks of unemployment left. During all this time she had been sick with a thyroid issue, she gained over fifty pounds, three fourths of her hair fell out, she had a cyst in her breast, severe acid re flux, she went from the person she recognized to looking like a stranger, then came the allergic reactions, inability to breath, then her doctor let her go as a patient, saying she was too difficult to treat, she could no longer focus, or keep her thoughts straight, she kept writing notes to herself so she would not forget what she needed to do or what she had said to someone in conversation, her family relationships became strained, her friends walked away without even looking back. Job-hunting was hopeless; she did not even have a college degree. There were no jobs to compete for, in one year she had, one interview. Sadly she had fallen away from her church family, not by her choice, it just happened slowly like her thyroid disease, at first she felt nothing unusual, then she was hit with a powerful punch, that near bought knocked her off her feet. It wasn’t just one thing but an accumulation of many things, hurtful things, things she did not know how to talk about, how to express, like a vine twisting up her body sucking the life out of her little by little, her family’s lack of understanding and indifference, having to go to the hospital alone, time after time, scarred out of her wits, barely able to breath, excruciating chest pains, inability to sleep, and the pain in her muscles that hurt her to her core daily. She felt betrayed, and buried so far into the pit of despair she did not know how to climb out. No one from her church had ever called her, instead, they just talked about her, called her backslidden, made fun of her weight, and snickered about her, and who she was before she found Christ. Jesus had wiped her sins clean, but her fellow man continued to judge her, and as hard as she tried to be a part of the church family, she was rejected and persecuted time after time. They were so worried about her outward appearance they never stopped to look at her inward appearance and the change God was doing in her life. That was when she began to visit other churches, looking for a family to accept her and love her. She let go of her family church, yet she remained faithful in prayer and her love for God.

The Spirit of Torment keep circling Cindy, giggling in evil ragged laughs, it was working, he just about had her where he wanted her if only he could break her will to pray, then she was his. No Matter how he tormented her, he could not touch her family as she prayed daily the word of God to cover them, it was just a matter of time, she would break, and in arid anticipation he rubbed his long bony fingers together, when all of a sudden he noticed, a gleam of light approaching, and he swiftly hid and was angered to see “Yonah” approaching, one of God’s Warrior Angels. The Spirit of Torment snorted in disgust, warrior indeed, besides Gabriel, he looked like a child, even though he was fully formed. Yonah was actually encouraging good thoughts to Cindy, what was he doing, he was ruining all his hard work, noooooooo, Cindy was getting on the floor, he and Yonah both heard her knees crackle and crunch, as her weight bore down, she bent over and put both hands out to lower herself to the ground, and promptly fell, pushed more like it, flat on her face.

Cindy laid on the floor, sobbing, in disparity, all she can mutter is one word. “Jesus”! Yonah continues to encourage her, and The Spirit of Torment becomes enraged.

Her sobbing turns to wailing and in the midst of her wailing “The Holy Spirit of God” moves in to intercede, and her tongue starts to flow in the heavenly language, she pours out her soul, slamming her fist from time to time “God, please do not forsake us, forgive us, Lord!” As the prayer pours forth from her mouth, Yonah snatches up the words and races toward heaven with her prayer in his hands, with The Spirit of Torment, hot on his trail. The Spirit of Torment pulls out his bow and aims and let’s go with his arrow racing through the air, piercing Yonah, who cries out and begins to fall, and The Spirit of Torment races past him, to help in the battle ahead.

Yonah examines his wound as he hides in the clouds, and decides to head home, the Master is waiting, and he does not want to disappoint the Lord. With grit and determination he heads to the heavenly realm and what he sees, is beyond his wildest perception, there are no Powers guarding the realm of heaven, and fearfully he approaches and looks up over the edge, and before him as far as his eyes can see is a great battle. Blue realms turning gray to black, between the Lords angels and the Angels who deserted God and now sided with the Destroyer. The battle is fierce, sword clashes against sword, shields are drawn, and held high to protect, and in the middle is a dragon called Legion, who is churning out battle orders harshly and has eight voices talking at once. Yonah begins to doubt himself, he is a warrior angel who is scared to go in battle, and in order to reach the Lord he must go through the battlefield, oh, where and how can he get his strength and a plan. Then he remembers Cindy, she is the answer, so he heads back to earth, and the demon is gone, thinking he has won, Cindy is laying on the ground spent exhausted and worn out, she says, God, you promised to never leave us, you promised in your word you would fight for us, and have mercy upon us, Lord, I have faith in your, Lord please defend us, and she continues to sob, God, I am here use me Lord, what can I do , I am nothing , one person, and Yonah smiles and slowly allows

Cindy to feel his pain, torment, and the heat of the battle, with an unexpected fierceness of rage, Cindy slams her fist into the ground and screams “NO MORE”, and the Holy Spirit of God begins to intercede, and Cindy rages into speaking in tongues, battling for what she knows not…….. Cindy prays as if her life depended on it. She pressed forward, and unseen to Cindy, Yonah, began to glow with a bright stars brilliance, and his wings surged with strength, and power filled his limbs and a sword dropped into his hand, and Yonah raced back to the realm of heaven and in the first blow the littlest warrior angel destroyed half of Satan’s army, as Yonah fluttered above the battle field, he dove to strike his next blow and the defected angels and demons fled, and Yonah was face to face, with Legion, and all eight of his voices ragged blasphemies at him , and with one swift blow, with the word of God, his sword, Yonah took off his head and the voices spoke no more, and the powers returned to the realm. Yonah swiftly gathered all the prayers that were dropped during battle and along with Cindy’s prayer ascended to heaven to the Throne and bowed at the Lord’s feet and presented all the prayers of the saints on Christmas Eve. The Lord God Almighty smiled and hugged the littlest angel saying “Job well done”! God then turned as the angels rejoiced and opened up the heavens and poured forth his blessings unto his children. Peace returned to the earth, at the same time it flooded Cindy where she laid, and she began to sing and rejoice in the Lord! Cindy stood and dusted herself off; her sobbing had been replaced with joy and she began to dance before the Lord!

In the year to come God ordered restoration to his faithful saints, with blessings beyond measure! As a child of God Cindy hardly understood all that had transpired, what gained the victory was allowing herself to be used, pressing forward and having faith and trusting the Lord even when she didn’t understand, what was important was she remembered to leave herself open to God’s calling.

The End!

Dear God,

At times I am amazed at the love you have for us, thank you for sending your son, so that we might be saved. Thank you for your priceless gift of love. Lord, we ask you to move through our great nation, a nation which was built “In God we trust”, on a solid rock foundation. Lord, our rock has been shaken as we as a nation moved away from thy precepts, forgive us, Lord. Lord, we bow to you in humility, and humbleness, we call on your holy name we pray and ask for your forgiveness and ask that this would be a new era that would heal our land and once more make us into a proud Godly nation united under you, our Lord and Savior. We ask and seek your presence in our government, our homes, our schools, our workplaces, our judicial system, our healthcare, and for the one true God to be present in our churches. Wake us up and stir us up Lord to do your calling and your will, give us insight, wisdom, to be spiritual leaders, and guidance to succeed. As in Joel 2:12- we are coming to you Lord with all our heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with morning, until every hindrance is removed and fellowship is restored. In 2 Chronicles 7:14- If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.

My father, let those who are tired come to you, the lost, the brokenhearted, the despondent, and the hopeless. I have heard it said that you love these people and you walk among them and save those who are crushed in spirit. I pray God for our protection, our family and our friends and our church, and these individuals that I lift up to you. I pray Psalms 91 and I plead your blood over them. I pray that you heal them and bind up their wounds. They cannot hear, they cannot see, they cannot speak, and they are blind, deaf and ignorant of your truth. I stand humbly before you God and ask you to open their ears, their minds, and their eyes. Some call them the scum of society, worthless, scavengers, unclean, and not savable. I see them as future saints adorned in crowns of beauty, gladness, and garments of praise. Lord, I know your truth is for every man, woman, and child. I pray for warrior angels commanded by you Lord, to set a hedge of protection around them, to guard them, so that when your vessels of saints come in contact with them and speak your truth and salvation the light in your vessels will not be your saints they see, it will be you, their Redeemer, their Savior, whose words will turn the lost to being found and the despondent to having hope, and the hopeless to be full of joy, all to be planted in faith of our Lord Jesus Christ with assurance of salvation. Save them, God, our doors are open, and we welcome them into your house.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Lord, let your pure white light shine over each of us. I plead the blood of Jesus,and I give thanks Lord for your hedge of protection on our families, friends , church and most important, the lost. 

Through the power and authority of Jesus Christ, let the Lord rebuke evil and rebuke the enemy and rebuke demonic and spiritual attacks. Let the Lord rebuke diseases, sickness, virus, cancer and autoimmune diseases, ISIS, enemies and war.

I unleash from heaven, God’s chosen army to defend us, to help, in our day of need in the very hour and presence we cry out. I unleash abundant love and acceptance, healing and victory through Jesus Christ our redeemer!

Lord let your face shine upon us, as you lead and guide us.

In Jesus name . Amen!

Whirl Wind

Come out of the Whirlwind.

I want you to remember it is only temporary, this too shall pass  and it is the building of your faith.

You are never abandoned. Your insight to God’s word will deepen. Your compassion and empathy for others will deepen to a level that even surprises you.

Offenses will become a thing of the past.

Yes, you will learn to love your offender and enemies, praying for them.

Circumstances will not decide your joy.

You will learn your true help comes from the Lord, and when he restores you, the Lord shall receive all Glory!

And yes , you will rise! Be encouraged this day and give thanks!

Power of God’s Word

There is joy in the word of the Lord.

If we read it, ingest it and study word of God daily, it will lead us from captivity to a place where waters of living grace will flow through us continually and cause us to produce much fruit.

We will be strong and our branches and vines will be planted in good soil. That when we feed on the word of God, it is like an all-consuming fire that runs through our body filling us spiritually and when we are filled spiritually, we are able to resist the temptations of the devil and turn from those things that temp us and lead us to harm.

There is life and liberty in the word of God! I learned that there are two parts of a human body that must be filled first and foremost, we must be feed spiritually and then we must be feed physically.

Reading the word, allows things to happen even when we don’t feel it, the word is alive and when spoken does not come back void. Speak the promises of God as if they are , believe and the word will manifest!

God’s word is pure truth. Grab it and never let go. Thank you God! I love watching you work!

Wednesday Prayer

My Prayer for you!

May the Lord go before you and be your rear guard, may love arise all around you, may God’s warrior angels be firmly planted around you and your loved ones, protecting them spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally rebuking evil and putting it under your feet where it belongs.

STRAIGHTEN your Crown!

Rise up, Breathe and Exhale, this is a new beginning, embrace it, love it and if and when you make a mistake, quickly ask forgiveness, and move onward. For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Remember you are not alone, you are loved unconditionally by God!

God knows your heart and he is working it all out. Have faith, sing a song and praise him for he deserves all glory.

In Jesus name we pray . Amen

A Real Friend

A real friend will always be truthful, loves you enough to speak truth to you, whether its a bad outfit, bad decision, or just bad choices.

A real friend will get down in the mud with you and pull you back up, when you are grieving or heartbroken. A real friend speaks truth in Love and that is Mercy!

Reach down with the right hand of Love and pull thy brother and sister up out of the pit for you are to Love them as I have Loved you!

God Blessed me as I waited!

Below is a story I wrote many years ago 2009, I share it today, because what God did in the past , he will do again in the future. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

At the end of my story below, is what God did for me in 2019.

Over ten years ago, I was talking to an acquaintance before church. I shared the good news, that I had gotten a job, in my field, after a year lay off (Recession). In my excitement, I exclaimed, how I had even managed to arrange a ride to and from work with three different people, as my vehicle had recently died on me. (yep, stuff happens)

Later after Sunday Service, I went to an Elder at the altar call, because my usual prayer partner was ministering to someone else. I was absolutely hesitant to approach the Elder because, I needed to confess, a long-buried secret of mine. In my life, I have been through a lot, and as a child, young woman and as an adult, as year after year came and went, I grew up learning to hate men, I hated the way they treated me, their critical nature, the hurt and pain, verbal abuse, mental abuse, dysfunctional, and abusive natures. I grew up thinking I was not worthy, favored, or loved .I wanted the love I read about in my romance books,  the love, that a man would go to the ends of the earth to prove his love for me and only me like in a romance novel.

I found there is only one who can love me , woo me, search for me, unconditionally love me, that kind of love only comes from our father in heaven. The one true love is that of Jesus, our Savior. I know Jesus, loves me, that through everything, I have been through; God was with me every step of the way. Jesus was with me when I felt abandoned and unloved. God loved me, when I was sick with thyroid disease, gaining over 100 lbs, losing my hair, and numerous medical problems from it. God was with me when my husband abandoned me for liquor and crack. God was with me when my home was foreclosed on, God was with us when my daughter went through a horrible custody battle, God was with me when I lost my job, God was with me when, I had to give up my rental home and move back home with my parents. God was with me when my car engine blew up and I no longer had a car. God kept me out of harms way when I was attacked physically. God was with me when I became sick and had an allergic reaction to medications given at the hospital and I literally thought I was losing my mind. Night after night, I had psychotic dreams, so horrifying, I will not repeat. God was with me. I truly believe God, put a saint (member at church) in my path, it is not strange that when I was at my weakest, she would call and lift me up, and when I was in my darkest hour, thinking, I was losing my mind, I cried out to Jesus, and I heard him say I am with you… call her, and I did. When I told her what I was experiencing, she prayed, on me, over me as an anointed saint of God. God used her and she brought me through, standing in the Gap for me. She is a wonderful Saint of God!

Then on the Sunday, I mentioned above, God showed me what I was hiding, the hate that I had not let go of, I remember looking at my Elder and absolutely did not want to approach him, and I heard God tell me to go forward, I could trust him. God has brought me through a lot. I had to trust God, and believe, that the Elder, would be able to help me pray about this situation. I trusted God first, then God told me to trust the Elder and confess my hate for men and the abuse I had endured, which I did.

Then the following Sunday, the elder had a word for me and then the Pastor and the Elder prayed for me. I studied the word the elder gave me and read the word, and sought God… what happened after service that Sunday.(Please read Below Highlighted area)

After studying and praying God gave me two scriptures, that was a first for me. Ester 2:11 and Malachi 3:10
In Ester, it was revealed to me that God is with me daily. God is concerned for me. Esters identity was hidden until a time for it to be revealed by God. (Still thinking on the last one, and how that pertains to me) In Malachi, it is a command for me to obey, to bring all my tithes into the storehouse, as I must act first, so God can act. God just blessed me with my new job, and tithing has been a weakness of mine, wanting to give, but never feeling I had any to give as I had more going out than coming in, during this time. I believed I needed to step forward in the supernatural, trust God, pay my tithes, so he can, in turn, bless me, which I feel like was a life lesson I learned after my elder gave me a word with my pastors ok…

After being led by prayer and getting a word from God on Malachi 3:10, I promised to start tithing according to what I heard God tell me to give, and in prayer I promised God, the amount I heard, then that following Friday Night, on the way home from work, my sister and I stopped at store, because traffic was stopped up and, I needed a restroom having got sick on the way home, When I came out, my sister was at the register buying cloths, and handed me a bag, saying here these are for you.

God reminded me years ago, how you helped me with clothes when I started my career, and I was told to bless you! I was overcome and told the manager how my sister was so sweet, how she was helping get to work, and my sister laughed and jokingly said, after a month you are on your own. I replied, that’s ok that is when God will give me a car, God just gave me this job, and my car is coming next. Then later that night before I could give the church my tithing, I received a phone call from someone who attends my church. I barely know this person, an aquaintence in greeting, from church had heard I didn’t have a vehicle, how I had a new job after a year lay off and that I had arranged rides to get me back and forth to work. The person wanted to know if I was interested in their vehicle, and gave me an in debth description, after several minutes, I said I was interested and asked what amount were they selling the vehicle. The person chuckled and stated “no, you do not understand, we do not want to sell it, we want to give it to you. I WAS SPEECHLESS!!!

The next day on Sunday (which was last week), I meet the person in church and gave them a card for their kind gesture, and I was informed that something was wrong with the vehicle, and, I laughed and said “No, the vehicle is fine, Satan is trying to steal my blessing and everything will be fine, the person wanted to put it in the shop to be sure, all was ok. I joyfully gave my tithing plus a gift. Then the following Sunday, after being told the vehicle was fine, arrangements were made to pick me up on Monday and carry me to the DMV. I took out an insurance policy, and when we got to DMV, we had to leave and have the car inspected (extra expense), then we went back to DMV, and God blessed me again, the persons would not let me pay for anything,

The party had paid for the inspection, taxes, tags, and license plate. We walked out and I was handed the key, we put on the plate and I drove away in a 1995 Dodge that was absolutely given to me by God. My elder was right, God was teaching me to trust him. God never left me, and he has provided for me through it all, and I know that I am loved, and a worthy person. God has released me from a lifelong bondage of hate toward men. I am free. At the same time God taught me a little at a time to trust him, and when my faith was built up, he blessed me. I can hardly contain my excitement to see how God moves next. All the praise and glory I give to God. And to my Pastor, elders, and friend, and all those who prayed for me I say thank you for you care concern and prayers. God Bless!

Three weeks ago, my car died on the way to the doctors. I was stranded for seven hours. I talked to God, my daughter and  my friend Renee during this time, both were to far away to help me, yet they both  encouraged me to remain calm. My anxiety was kicking up into full throttle, and I had no money for a tow with a store clerk telling me I couldn’t leave my car there. I didn’t even know how I was going to get home.

A dear friend, paid to have my car towed to a mechanic shop to get a diagnostic done.  The mechanic revealed to me, that I had a foreign substance in my fuel tank, and I asked what did that mean? The mechanic said he believed someone had put sugar or sand into my fuel system. Did I have an enemy? The repair would cost $900.

I had no way to cover this cost, I have no income, I take care of my mom around the clock.  What was I going to do, that car is our only transportation, why would someone do that to me, especially knowing it affects my mother and me. I couldn’t process that someone would be that devious, and purposely tear up my car.

This whole situation was out of my control. I prayed. Cried. Let it go and gave it to God!

Shortly thereafter, I had someone say to me in anger, “now you know what it feels like to go without a car, God is punishing you for not giving me a ride. ” I was shocked this person spoke to me with such anger, I had indeed turned this person down several times for a ride, because I do not feel safe around this person who could have put me in harms way, danger. I believe it was God showing me my enemy, who I needed to be very careful around, for God gives me discernment and gut intuition to go by to keep me safe.  There are just some situations and people you have to say no too, in order to protect your life, freedom and safety.  I feel this person is responsible for the damage done to my car in act of vandalism . I just cant prove it. More importantly, how am I going to get my car back on the road. Total Cost of Repairs $900.

While I was going through this God was working it out, and what was meant for evil , God turned it to Good, fourteen days later, two people came forth to help, one I knew the other wants to remain anonymous, and they are helping me get my car repaired.  Nothing but God, I give him all the Glory! Repairs have begun , I am hoping to have my vehicle back by Friday!

I will have a car again. Just like ten years ago, God provided me a vehicle when there was no way to get one. Here we are ten years later, and he moved the cattle on the mountain (God Funds), provided the funds to fix my vehicle after vandalism, to cover and provide the need my mother and I have for a vehicle. And yes, it now has a brand new gas lock! God is just awesome.

 

 

Autumn

I am waiting, looking up, in anticipation……seeking the gold, orange, yellow and red vibrant colors within the trees. Waiting, anticipating….when will you change. For surely you shall then begin to fall slowly from up above, to the ground below, Anticipation builds waiting to glide through your beauty, as you glide downward, a moment in time, everything stops, as I look above and I watch you FALL.

In our waiting, God is working on our master-plan.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and. … and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

solokon

Thank you Renee for this nomination.

 

“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.”

Debra’s Thoughts on this Award!

Originally, I felt I didn’t deserve this award, as I refreshed my reading on  Proverbs 31. I’m not a proverbial wife I didn’t  measure up to the perfection of the proverbial woman. I’m divorced. In the past, I  tended to ignore the Proverbs woman all together because reading it made me  feel defeated.

After getting this award, I read it again then discovered something new, maybe I am growing into a Proverbial woman, just as I am a work in progress with Jesus.

I learned I am worthy, a warrior for Christ, a daughter, who is loved by ABBA, as I have faced many hard battles. I didn’t chose my divorce, it left me heartbroken. I had to learn to be courageous, God clothed me in his strength when I was weak.  I had to fight to keep my dignity.  When my man said I was unworthy God showed me my worth, wooing me with his ancient love song and wrapping it around my heart. There came a time when I could only rely on God, which built trust. God placed a shield of trust  over me to teach me I could rely on him, he would never abandon me or forsake me.  I believe in kindness, giving to others, being available to help. I’m creative, busy, a good manager, and I care for my household, my mother. I am blessed beyond measure with a beautiful daughter, who is my sunshine, my wonderful sun in law and four adorable grandchildren who I have  shared the story of Jesus and how good he is to me; all of us. I have been privileged to rock five beautiful babies, laying hands on them in prayer. I watched them come to know Jesus and seeing that love grow is amazing,  baby dedications, witnessing  many of them accepting Christ as their Savior and baptism. God is showing me, a divorced woman, can be a proverbial woman too…… I didn’t give up, I pushed forward despite my circumstances, for you must survive, even when broken hearted, I was persistant! Look at all these blessings! Thank you Jesus!

There is Hope for the Addict! Prayer

When you have done all you can do, within your means, to help a loved one who is addicted, without enabling, remember in the chaos, that prayer is a mighty weapon! I have lost one brother, two best friends to addiction, and now living with my baby brothers addiction, I am writing about it in hopes that people will not judge , just pray for him and others battling this addiction. I see the good in them, I know the good in them, addiction is robbing and killing our loved ones, it can happen to anyone, even you. 

Never put drugs in your body given by a friend, say “NO”; Never put drugs in your body given by a doctor without out knowing the side effects, you have a right to say “NO” to these prescriptions being pushed on doctors by the big Pharm companies, use your voice to ask for something better or safer. Say “NO” ; know what you are taking, research, make safe choices. Below is a prayer for families and the ones going through addiction, you can change it to sister, mother, dad, cousin, etc…..Just pray for them, please, and their families!please take time to read the following if you are struggling with addiction:

Dear Lord it is my prayer that You would free my “Brother” from the drugs that have become an addiction to him.. and which have almost broken the family apart and caused us all such pain and distress.

Father You know the anger that seems to lurk within him and the explosive outbursts that are so difficult to cope with. Lord He needs Jesus in his life and the indwelling Holy Spirit in his heart and I ask that You would convince him of his need for Jesus – and convict him of: “sin and righteousness and judgement”… just as Your Word has said.. and bring Him I pray, to recognize that this addiction to drugs is not Your will for anyone and is likely to end in tragedy if not dealt with soon.

I thank You that You care for people like my brother who have gone so far astray from the way of truth. Thank You that You have never given up on him despite his addiction to drugs. Thank You that he can come to You to seek for deliverance and know that You will not turn him away. Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and thank You that You are faithful and true to Your word – even when we prove faithless.

Lord I know that Your Word promises a way of deliverance to all who seek You and I believe that in Jesus is found healing and wholeness, salvation and security – deliverance and joy. And Lord I ask for You to deliver my brother from these drugs and free him from being in bondage to this cursed addiction.

Help him I pray. Save him Lord and set him free from these drugs on which he has become so dependent. Give him the means to break loose from drugs and the ability to see it through to the end. He knows that on his own he will fail but Lord I do believe that in Christ he can be set free – help him Lord in Jesus name.

Please release my brother from the angers and pain that dwell inside of him. Almighty Father, take him in your hands and guide him to better choices, for a life without the need for drugs or alcohol. That the trouble that he is now facing, is left behind him. Lord, my brother is a wonderful man, give him the courage and the faith to believe in himself, and realize how much he is loved and cherished.

Father, hear my prayers for him and all others that are living the same kind of life. Heal them Lord, let them rejoice in a life of self respect, respect for others and love for themselves, and most of all the Glory of your love. I know in you, that he and all the others can find peace and happiness. O’ God our Father, please hear our prayers.

Dear Lord I bring my brother to You whose reliance on drugs and addiction to medication is causing myself and our family serious episodes of aggression, manipulation, violence, depression, irrationality, fears, walking on eggshells, deep concerns and utter sadness.

Lord we really don’t know what to do and we seem to have run out of ideas and suggestions and there is no one but You to whom we can turn.

Lord he is prone to mood swings – sometimes seeming depressed and at other times hyper active.. and yet at other times is only able to sleep – sometimes for the best part of a day.. Help us we pray to help HIM.. and release him Lord, from this unhealthy reliance on drugs. Heal him of the negative effects that they are having on his physical and mental health and return him to normal health and strength we ask in Jesus name.

Lord, you as our creator, we trust in your name so we call for your help day and night. I have so many fears day and night, deep in my soul I cry every second of my life because I lost my brother due to his extreme drug addiction for so many years. I pity him a lot. I have embraced and told him how much I really love and care for him as a sister,yet now he doesn’t accept it nor does he understand it.

Lord, you know how I feel every moment I think of my brother.I didn’t realize that the world would be so cruel to my parents as my brother chose drugs more than anything else in this world. I have always tried to support& be there for him . Yet things turned differently than I imagined. It hurts a lot to see my brother being sick, going through with-drawls, sick  physically and mentally, then calling ambulances when he overdoses, dealing with his psychological repetitive patterns of verbal, emotional and mental abuse to myself and  family members. Lord his words destroy and hurt to our core. Lord we humbly come to you to rebuke this addiction, the verbally , mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually  abusive patterns caused by addiction, Lord we rebuke the manipulation, stealing and the lies separation and destruction of the family unit in Jesus name. Holy Spirit, come sit with us and raise a standard.

I will never stop begging for your help and for those families who are suffering the same problem as mine. Abide in us in those hard moments. Give us all courage to Stand, fill us with your strength, protect our families.

You are a loving God and we praise and thank You for all Your goodness to us and to all people – We bless You for our lives and for all the joy and grace that You so readily bestow on all Your creation.

Lord we lift up an increasing number of men and women who suffer from drug addiction and pray that You would provide them with the grace and strength to reach out to You for the necessary help and guidance that they may need – as they take the important steps to recovering their physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Give those that are addicted to drugs the will, perseverance, courage and ability to take the first step to regain their health and wholeness. Comfort, protect and succor friends and family members that are affected by those that are trapped in drug addiction.

Give courage and hope to all who are seeking to break its demonic hold over the lives of so many and may the power of Your love and grace transform their lives – knowing that Jesus Christ alone is able to break the power of drugs, return a soul into freedom and bring beauty for brokenness – we stand and rebuke drug addiction from our families, asking for protection of our loved one, granting all peace, hope, Love,and Joy. Believing the best is yet to come,  this we ask in Jesus name,Amen

I‘m standing on the shore, looking over my shoulder behind me at the chaos and destruction, feeling overwhelmed, deeply hurting, feeling pain course through out my body, My scars are there for all to see, Blood is pouring forth from my recent wounds. I cry out, I need you, please come stand with me.

Where does my help come from?

I turn back around gazing before me at the vast beautiful site of a majestic lake that lays before me for miles, the lake is bluer than any blue I’ve ever seen, as if glowing like Hemimorphite crystals, colors dancing in the sun.crystalI look at the water watching a canoe come before me, I slowly climb inside taking the paddle pushing away from the shore. I’m letting go.

I take notice everything I could need is in the canoe, how can this be ? my bible, books to read, journals waiting for my writings, an umbrella and a pop up canopy.  All my favorites are here, big cuddly beautiful pillows, downy soft blankets. I lay back and drape the paddle across me to look at the sky, studying the shoreline and observing the trees foliage, feeling the wind blowing gently across me , the warmth of the sun caressing my skin, gazing upon mountains surrounding the lake, I’m intently watching a massive bird on the horizon swooping toward me.Wow it’s a magnificent eagle, with wing spans of 36 feet and it begins to flutter before me, those massive wings creating a stirring, looking at me intently, somehow studying me, showing his incredible strength, Eagle says, “I’m the connection to the Divine, I represent resurrection of Christ. I bring strength. I give you courage and freedom to look ahead.”then suddenly soaring upward.

Isaiah 40:30 says “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.”

sue-tucker-KbSPV3OQEaM-unsplash eagle

Then comes another bird, white as snow, a dove, gently stopping by to gaze upon me with the most beautiful eyes showing adoration,unconditional love. Dove says, “I’m the Comforter, Holy Spirit, I represent the Baptism of Jesus , I represent peace of the deepest kind, allowing renewal of the mind.”

Matthew 3:16 New International Version (NIV)

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

dove

Lastly a red cardinal burst forward saying, “I m the blood, I know you are sad, it’s hard to focus, after a hard battle, I come to build up your faith, renew your energy, I’m the fire and vitality of the Holy Spirit within you.”

The Cardinal Bird Symbol in Christianity is symbolic of the living blood of Christ. … “By His blood we are freed from sin to serve the living God, to glorify Him, and to enjoy Him forever.” Traditionally, the cardinal is symbolic of life, hope and restoration.

My tears rolled gently down my face like a river stream releasing built up pain and the sky began to cry with me raining down washing me clean from the battle. I popped up the canopy, it covering me like wings. I nestled underneath into the pillows and blankets, once again feeling safe, in the canoe, loved and comforted by a peace that surpasses all understanding as God ministered to me floating on the crystal clear blue lake of living water, restoring my soul, breathing life and filling me with Hope once more.

Where does my Help Come From? Jesus, I only need be still and silent , letting go, trusting and Jesus will fight my battles for me! I trust you Lord! Good night!

Prayer:

Heavenly Father our Warrior, the one who fights for us.

Thank you for coming covering all who are on the battlefield, giving them the peace that surpasses all peace, covering them according to your word in Psalms 91, you are their strength, peace and renewal through hardest of days. Thank you for Covering them Oh Lord for they are yours, when the enemy comes in like a flood, you will raise a standard, rising against that flood, rushing into the flood, with sword of spirit, roaring victory, for we must let go, as the battle is yours, come sit with us Lord those who are in battle, for I know we are your beloved and yo will save us all. We search your word, fasting, holding onto truth, for we know you are for us, you will never forsake us, you are Lord and Savior, and we rejoice and glorify you, In Jesus name. Amen.

Having A Rough Day?

Are things not going the way you planned today? Are you in midst of various trials?

All of us are going through unexpected events or things like relationship issues, separation, divorce, job loss, health issues, death of love one, custody issues, abuse, addictions, homelessness, attacks on our beliefs, morals, values and ethics, our very integrity.  These various assaults can leave you feeling hopeless. I personally have gone through many of these trials. I just want you to know there is HOPE!

Don’t focus on the problem, put your focus on Jesus! Below is a mild situation I went through recently, that had me stressing. Now if this had happened to me in my twenties, I’d be ranting, cussing, mad at the inconvenience. Despite what I know, I let it get to me. Yet God knew my need before I ever did, an dthis problem was more than just about the tires, there were things going on in the spiritual realm than I even perceived.

A few weeks ago, I ended up having 3 flat tires all in one week . I put air in tires, went got the tires plugged. Something this simple could have been a real problem, but a few days before a friend had blessed me with a gift of unexpected money due to the fact she knows I’m currently jobless and caring for my mother. All my friend said was that it was put on her heart to help me. My attitude about the tires were “Thank you Lord, for showing me the tires were flat, before driving my vehicle, thank you Lord my tires didn’t blow out while driving.”

Unknowingly, I would soon be traveling several stats away on a long  trip to rescue a husband and wife with four children from a bad situation, to take them to safety. Remember, I have no money, I’m broke as a two dollar bill. I received another gift of money,  which purchased 3 new tires, for the trip, and enough money to cover expenses on this trip. God already knew about this family, and God knows I’m willing.  God provided the means and the way. The family is doing great! God took what seemed a minor attack against me and turned it into a powerful testimony of his goodness, for his glory, turning my bad situation into good. The story doesn’t end here. Another person was very grateful for me helping this family and when I dropped them off, I was handed money,placed in my palm, with a grateful amount of thanks,  the exact amount of all my expenses I had incurred to get this family to their new location. Remember if you are willing, God can and will use you!

Maturity and wisdom have taught me that I can declare this change in plans will be a good thing, for my good and not evil, I am the head and not the tail. I am a child of God.  My Daddy is in control of all the cattle on the hills and all the banks on earth and if God says it is so , it will be! I believe! God is in control. Remember, prior to flat tires, I got a gift of money, because God already knew my need before me. God also knew the need of this family that was in the near future,  What the enemy meant for bad, God used for all our  Good!

Simply put you can’t fall apart every time things don’t go as planned. Rejoice you are part of a far bigger picture than you can even imagine. Rejoice, God is working it out, be willing!

Psalms 3:3 –But you, O LORD, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.

Heavenly Father, My plans are not working out, you are in control, and I have faith you are working things out for my good. I ask you to help me stay positive with a Good Outlook and Perspective on things turning around for good. Lord will you lift my Heart, Head, Hands, Attitudes, Moods and most importantly my Hope, which is anchored in you, Jesus. You Lord ,alone, are the lifter of my soul. Thank you for helping me to rise. Amen in Jesus name.

Lifter of my Head! This Song blessed me nightly!
