Life is fragile. There are those who watch life pass by, going through the motions, as they mindlessly watch Fall leaves blow, tap dancing across the ground on a cold gusty day.
Others stay glued to their phones, watching thier screen like it is the second coming, chained at the wrist missing the leaves blowing; tap dancing around their feet as they briskly walk to thier destination unmindful of traffic or dangers lurking ahead.
Hopeless addicts walking our streets, looking for their next fix, anger, agitation, feet kicking angrily at leaves dancing around their feet, on cold gusty days.
Unfortunately, there are ones who lie in their beds, fighting to breath, hooked up to ventilators, each breath a struggle, wishing they were gazing out a window watching the leaves dance on a cold gusty day with a loved ones arms hugging them tight. As they pray for another tomorrow.
Another victim is being pushed into a van , trafficking them to a new location, thier bodies sold as commodities; blind and oblivious to Falls beauty; leaves tap dancing around their legs trying to break them free.
Children are born into starvation, abuse and war. Parents are aging and dying blowing away like leaves on a cold gusty fall day.
All these events are out of our control. Trauma recognizes trauma. There is no reason or rhyme to circumstances. Feelings of helplessness.
Pain and suffering felt in the winds, blowing leaves, tapping around my feet, feeling each of your stories on a cold gusty day.
Take time to notice the leaves, as they swirl and dance, for the Holy Spirit is the wind that blows invisible and without the wind, the leaves remain unseen. The mighty wind pushed the leaves all around you, stirring your spirit, to lock your eyes, in a split second of seeing, a life can be changed.
I hope you see them. The leaves are symbols of the forgotten and unseen. The Holy Spirit blows it’s breath to toss them up and around, do you see them? Cry out for them. Embrace them with your love and prayers.
God breath is like the wind that moves across the waters blowing where it may, powerfully covering the earth just as the day the breath of God created the earth. An invisible force that represents flow of life. The winds blow daily and often we are unaware of the force that surround us, often gentle as a lamb or roaring like a lion. Embrace and go with flow of the wind, don’t oppose it, let it whirl up inside and bubble over. Wind is untouchable yet elusive force that unless we anchor the wind in our hearts, we may never see that which needs to be seen.
God let us see your children. May they know you and grow in relationship with you. May you become the anchor of thier hope. May you fill the void in them that has them feeling broken. Cover all those who are abused, alone, blind, scared, sick, suffering with pure white light of God’s love. May thier eyes be open. Heal them. God may they know you are fighting for them. Give them courage, in thier weakness, may they gain Strenght from you. Lord place others in their live that can be a source of light, guidance and hope. Lord may they be binded to your anchor of love and may love be loosed to help others as love covers a multitudes. Lord bless them in all their ways. Rescue them and set them free. May the holy spirit continue to blow the leaves stirring us in our hearts, to pray and to see them. Holy Spirit may love abound. In Jesus name. Amen.

How many of my readers have scars. Do you try to cover the scars up, hide the scars, disguise the scars? When did it become shameful to have scars? People use make up, unique hairstyles, or clothing in pursuit of camouflaging those ole scars.

It might surprise you to know the stories of your scars are important to God! Scars can be spiritual, physical, emotional or mental. What most people fail to realize is that scars are a sign of wounds being healed. There is beauty in the healing!
Scripture shows in John 20:20 – 29 Jesus appears to the disciples after His death, Thomas wants to see proof of the wounds “the nail marks” in Jesus hands, feet and side. Therefore in John 20:25, Jesus tells Thomas, “Put your finger here; see My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side.” John 20:27
The wounds of suffering were now scars. The scars are proof of Jesus suffering on the cross. Jesus chose to keep the scars to send a message. Praise God he returned with the scars. The message of Jesus scars is absolute proof he suffered and died for us, so that we may live. The suffering brought compassion for mankind. Jesus understands our human nature. The beauty in the story of the scars is that a healing took place, Jesus conquered the wounds, overcame suffering, and the scars are proof of the victory of our risen Christ!

Through my journey I have acquired many scars. Today, in my story, I will share I have two large visible scars I see everyday in the mirror, running vertical from under my arms to middle of my chest. Scars of my mastectomy. I could allow my scars to be a sign of defeat, anguish, loss of what was, yet I choose to see the beauty in the scars. What I lost doesn’t define me as a human or a woman! I chose to see the beauty in my scars as they show my strength, courage, suffering, pain and loss. My scars are a sign to others that early Detection Saves Lives! Yet even more beautifully my scars show the healing power of Jesus! Scars of Jesus are proof of the resurrection, overcoming of suffering. Healing of all wounds. Glorious Victory!

Americans are more against each other than for one another. The division in our nation is great; unprecedented. I don’t have a clue how to fix it? Maybe your like me, tired, frightened and worried for your family only trying to survive another day. A recent article talked about America heading toward succession because of the differences we are battling. A divided America…. That can Never Happen! A divided America cannot stand.
What do Americans have in common? All Americans in some form pursue the American dream, choices belong to individuals, not government, in the pursuit of happiness, freedom. A majority want a government that is for all people that can be trusted. A voting system that is ethical. Good medical care. Systems in place that protect all people from “Big Pharm” and researchers that want cures and search for them. Affordable Housing. Our children are our legacy and our greatest treasure, we need better education, childcare that is affordable to all and to allow our children to pursue their dreams in life without fear. Racism has many categories and our nation needs racial healing. Discrimination is ongoing and our systems need a revamp, holding workplaces accountable, without retaliation, fearmongering, or loss of employment. With all we know, how do we go forward and make America better? Maybe it starts with being free thinkers, instead of being spoon fed information and beginning conversations that bring about change or asking questions like ” How do you know what you know? What are your sources? Is there a monetary kickback for your work?. The conversations will be hard, yet the possibility of reconciliation could bring back unification of America.
Heavenly Father, we need you! Our fight isn’t against people on earth but against the rulers and the authorities and powers of this worlds darkness. Against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world. Lord, today we put on the full armor of God.On the day of evil we, your creation can stand strong, knowing you fight for us and when we are weak, God you are a strong house, a tower who covers us and protects us with your wings. Lord we submit to you, resisting the devil so he will flee from our land. Thank you for disarming the devil and making a public spectacle of the forces of evil triumphing over them by the work of the cross. Lord bind up all strategies of old of the enemy. Lord may you rebuke this Great Spiritual Deception, cancelling its abilities to deceive! Lord, thank you in advance for canceling, voiding and nullifying all plans against humanity.Thank you for loving us and fighting for us all! Lord thank you for releasing from heaven a spiritual, physical , mental and emotional healing for every man, woman and child from crown of our heads to souls of our feet with rivers of living water running through us, cleansing us from spiritual battles and man made battles, surrounding our nation with the pure white light of Christ’s Love, enveloping this nation from sea to shinning sea. Thank you Lord that we are loved more than we can ever imagine by a God who died for our sins so that we may live and have eternal life! Healing starts with remembering we are all connected and part of a wonderful plan, God has plans to prosper and not harm to give us all HOPE! The division needs to stop, when Jesus died on the cross, he died for ALL!You All are my Brothers and Sisters, we are All Americans! Our country was built on God, we may be broken , yet we are not defeated! May God’s weepers and warriors arise and pray!
In Jesus Name! Amen!
To answer my own question, “What do Americans have in common? The answer is simple! LOVE. God our creator loves us all!
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. ❤️
Good Morning, How are you today? Not so good? Me neither, trying to rise above! So, I thought maybe we could have a wee bit of coffee and a prayer together! My small coffee pot for one , no matter how I make it always ends up with coffee grinds in it, I’m not complaining , nope, really ecstatic to have coffee! I LOVE “me” some coffee with Starbucks creamer! The other creamer is out of stock “White Chocolate & Raspberry!”
First off, let me say “God Bless you each and everyone!” I hope your day is filled with joy! Today we all have a choice to let our light shine, with all that is before us in these uncertain days! I choose to Shine!
And share a prayer, may it bring us all peace!
Dear God, we humbly come before you praising you and all your creation! There is nothing going on under the sun and moon that you don’t already know about! Lord we ask that the schemes of the enemy be brought out of darkness into the light exposed and destroyed by you! Father we pray you eradicate, cancel and void Covid 19, Cancer, Aids, man made virus, diseases and afflictions! Father, we declare healing to our nation for by your stripes we are healed! We take authority pleading the blood of Jesus, believing for protection over our children, grandchildren, all our families and friends. We ask in Jesus name that you surround us with the pure white light of Christ love, protecting each and everyone spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. We pray a strong hedge of protection around our nation believing and having faith God’s protection is there. Standing firm in the faith, that Jesus Christ is with us , knows our need for healing, delivering and providing us from the smallest to the greatest of our details. We bind up the enemy, in all areas, all attacks, all schemes, all devices, cancelling them and declaring them void in the authority and name of Jesus Christ! Thank you Lord that you FIGHT for us and make a way , that we are the head and not the tail, We are above only and not beneath, We are complete in Him Who is the Head of all principality and power, We are alive with Christ , We are free from the law of sin and death, We are far from oppression and fear does not come near us. We are born of God and the evil one does not touch us! We are redeemed from the curse of sin, sickness, and poverty, We are healed by the stripes of Jesus, For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, love and a sound mind! We are greatly loved by God! We are submitted to God and the devil must flee from us because we resist him in the Name of Jesus! We are firmly rooted, built up, established in our faith and overflowing with gratitude in Jesus name we pray . Amen!
I dont know about you all! I sure feel better after praying!
Now take that great cup of coffee and look out your window!
Wow! Meeting Goals! Three years ago, Beetree- Gathering bloomed into life, specifically my lifeline.
Blogging became an outlet used to express personal passions in life. Creativity flows through my veins for writing, painting, reading, photography and cooking.
To the best of my ability, I transferred pains of life to Beetree-Gathering writing in a style that I hoped could bless and benefit others in their trials.
During the creation of my blog, I suddenly lost my dad to a massive heart attack, while I was still grieving the loss of my younger adult brother and my best friend of fifteen years.
I witnessed the miracle of my mom coming back from brink of death, then living life fully, despite dementia.
One day I experienced angels visiting in my mom’s yard during a very low point being greatly encouraged.
The enemy had destroyed many relationships, I was hurt and grieving, slowly I began to experience reconciliation of important relationships that I thought were ruined. That’s God!
My health continues to blossom, I have experienced the healing of God. I feel Jesus walks my health journey with me. I don’t walk alone, Jesus has wiped my tears, been my encourager, healer, inspiration and voice convincing me to do more.
I learned how to be alone, without fear, breathing in the stillness of absolute quiet. I learned to love my quiet times as it gives me wonderful opportunities of reflection.
I learned I am not responsible for others behaviors, only mine. Change took place when I worked on me. I am not without fault, and I asked for forgiveness just as quickly as I gave forgiveness. Forgiveness is often misunderstood, as letting a person off the hook. However, for me when I gave forgiveness, most time without apologies, letting go of the trauma, betrayal, hurt or pain, actually allowed me to start healing.
Blogging changed me in many ways. I have around 250 followers, for which I’m deeply and profoundly grateful. Your stories came at divine times just when my soul needed the words to soothe me, or challenge me, or help me question my direction. I received blogger awards in disbelief, utterly surprised I had readers, followers , strangers who became friends.
Thank you to all who follow my blog, for sharing your stories and being friends to me. May God bless your blogs, increase your readership, give you all opportunities to bless your life and the lives of others. I wouldn’t be here if not for you all believing in me!
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.”
I love being creative or innovative. My hobbies are writing, blogging, interior decorating, staging and art. Recently I got back into Art after watching an acrylic pour video using Acrylic paints. I wondered if I could be successful if I gave painting a try. I loved art when I was younger, drawing and painting. Not sure why, it just faded away. 🤷 Painting is fun because to me there are no mistakes, just keep going till you achieve what you like to create. I don’t have any certain niche, My hobby has helped my anxiety and stress levels considerably. I started by watching YouTube videos then started playing around until I learned basic techniques and in process ruined good cloths.🤪 Now I happily keep paint cloths on hand 👌. Don’t be shy give art a try. The possibilities are endless. After all if we pray about creating to our Lord who is the master creator, having created our universe, isn’t God capable of gifting us at any age? Just a thought! Now pray and Create, it will be fun!💯🌝
Prayer :God, Thank You for being my creative director. Thank You for guiding me and leading me into the divine destiny you have in store for me. It’s easy to think that I know it all, but I don’t. I don’t have all the answers, You do. More often than not, I won’t know the “how” but I know the “who” and that is You. You are the one that will strengthen and qualify me. You are the one that will fill me with ideas and creativity that the world has yet to witness. You are the one that will give me the wisdom to carry out those ideas so that they will be manifested in Your name. Lord, even when it doesn’t make sense to me, give me the confidence to trust that You know what You’re doing. Lord, please do not let fear or anxiety push me to depend on my own understanding. Lord, not only are you my creative director but you are my creative consultant. Help me to consult You before I act and lean on Your direction alone.
Yesterday, I awoke , sat up with my world turning upside down. All gravity and balance was gone. When I tried to lift my head, the world spun to point I felt like I was passing out. I was helpless. Yesterday was like a bad roller coaster ride. Every-time I tried to pull forward, I was twisted and turned all around. I ended up flat on the carpeted floor the first time I tried to go toward the bathroom. Lucky for me my half bath is tiny, located under a staircase, I had no other choice but to lean into the wall, then I crawled back to my couch.
Luckily, my purse was near me, I pulled out a finger pulse/ oxygen sensor, then a thermometer , and lastly my blood sugar meter. All these gadgets, showed my vitals and blood sugar we’re normal. Maybe your wondering why I’ve kept those gadgets in my purse. Simply, since last year they became essential because of Covid Virus. There have been many times that I’ve been glad of their purchase because of my anxiety, fearing going to a hospital. I have had Vertigo once in the past and felt confident that was what I was dealing with at this time. I proceeded to lay there until 6:30 pm that night, finally got up ate a simple meal.
My vertigo reminded me that I am not in control, yet God is in full control.
Despite chaos everywhere, God is on the throne handling it all. God isnot taken by surprise.
I was reminded that when I can’t walk straight, when I am weak, God carried me through.
Being a person who endures anxiety, the last few weeks were overwhelming, with all the news reports, of Covid, Delta Variant, Afghanistan debauchery, fake news, fearmongering, and isolation took a toll on my mental health. I’m scared, worried for all humanity, feeling helpless that I can’t do anything to help, just wanting to hear good news.
Vertigo made me realize I can help and possibly inspire others bywriting the good news I seek.
Good News today!
1. Our planet still functions in all it’s beauty with our Awesome Sun and Amazing Universe that was miraculously spoke into being by our creator who breathed life into us and when humanity fell short and sinned. God in his infinite love made a way for us all to have everlasting life and salvation by dying on a cross bearing the weight of the world upon himself. Rising from the dead three days later, ascending into heaven. Jesus paid the one time price for you. When you ask God into your heart and to forgive your sins, you are forgiven as far as east is to the west, your sins are remembered no more, white as snow, past , present and future. God resides in you and you are a work in progress.
2. There is a spiritually powerful weapon at your disposal. It’s called Prayer! Talk to God like you talk to your best friend. Then always give thanks to God and glorify him.
“Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Deuteronomy says of God’s army that ‘one man (could) chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight’ (32:30).
Bible Matthews 18:20
“There is a multiplied effect in being together before God. It was the corporate prayer of Acts 1:14 that produced the corporate power of Acts 2:42-47. Corporate prayer brings corporate power (Acts 4:14-31).”
“Unity is a force. Whenever any group of people gather in one accord, nothing can be impossible with them.” “There is power in praying together.
Unity Prayer for Today.
Heavenly Father, Today I bind all prayers together for humanity and loose the prayers upon your angels to give flight to bring our words thoughts, needs before you, understanding there is power in praying together even though our needs be separate, believing in prayer of unification, that millions of angels take flight with our prayers carrying them forward to your holy throne with no hindrances from the enemy. May all our cries be heard and all our tears wiped. Lord we trust in you as your word promises you will fight for us. May your angels encamp around us, protecting us from evil, may no plague come near us, may we rejoice as you bring us out, of the fire, carrying buckets of water, spiritual living waters for others, as we rejoice in victory! In Jesus name Amen.
I just want to thank you for everything that you are doing for our loved ones, family, friends and acquaintances.
Lord, you know already how overwhelmed our world is at moment. You, Lord are the only good news I know that I can spread that is absolute truth. The events challenging this world and relationships causing divisions is a lie of old to separate us as humanity. The enemy is working to isolate and destroy believers to make us feel all alone and defeated. God I am grateful for your word and the saints who spread the good news of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Savior, Healer, Redeemer, Way-maker, Provider, Protector, Bread of Life, Counselor, Advocate, Teacher, High Priest, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. God you are glorious and our creator, Lord we edify and lift you above all creation.
I thank you God for the hidden strength and courage you continue to give the world.
If we run off course looking for quick fixes. Lord you just show mercy and forgive us steering your people back on course, you do not turn away from us, instead you embrace your people. your love fills us and may we hear your whispers once more infusing us the will to carry through.
God, you remind us of your love and in that LOVE is rest from the Storm, I can always trust in you.
O Lord, May we keep moving forward because we know that you will never let us go. Your Love is forever steadfast when it feels like our hearts are breaking into a thousand pieces. I cry out for all who are being persecuted in this world, Lord please wipe thier tears, and make a way where there doesn’t seem to be a way. Blind the enemy, placing warrior angels around all who are in the path of evil. Father we cry out believing you to protect spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. Pleading the precious blood of the lamb over ever soul.
May we continue to trust in you, O Lord, and never think otherwise. May the hearts of our families and generations to come always find refuge in you, O God.
Prayer can be powerful, and prayer is powerful whether as a single prayer by you or a group. I believe in prayer, having seen the supernatural move of God many times , for anyone to ever convince me prayer doesn’t work or that there is no God.
God is alive and well! Everyday, we have an incredible opportunity to submit ourselves before God.
Pray on the full armor of God!
The full armor of God—truth, righteousness, the gospel, faith, salvation, the Word of God, and prayer—are the tools God has given us, through which we can be spiritually victorious, overcoming Satan’s attacks and temptations.
Ephesians 6:11-18 “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Pray for family and friends, standing in the gap, praying for others protection, safety, needs, finances, healing, restoration and salvation.
Anyone can pray, you can pray! It is a powerful weapon in spiritual warfare. Everyday ask God to be your rear guard and forward guard. Welcome the Holy Spirit in your home and vehicle and workplace. The Holy Spirit is before you and behind you is the mighty Lion of Judea. If God be for you who can be against you. When you are weak, God is strong giving strength, when overwhelmed God gives rest. God is our healer, provider and restores us. God knows all our weakness, where as man judges, God sees and knows our hearts, God has wiped every tear and he truly loves us. How do I know this? It starts with one simple prayer. Say his name , “Dear Jesus” he will come running, God desires a relationship with you this very minute. Let the relationship begin……….then you will understand when I say ” Oh how he loves us” that yes, God truly does love us all!
Why Pray? to connect with the creator of the universe, to begin a beautiful relationship!
Early on from birth, humans are given false labels based on demographics, culture, heritage, ancestry, by society, family, friends and strangers. Labels are what you call yourself in your head, tags planted by you or others in your mind. These labels are attached by society? We take that tag and become what we think we are told by others in society. Sadly what tags we allow to plant in our minds becomes our truth, even though its false.
God Labeled you prior to your birth? He identified you and wrote your name on the palm of his hand. He knows everything about you including your gifts, personality, strengths, weakness.
Do you remember where your negative labels came from, the root origins? Did it start with society? Parents? Friend? or Spouse? Were you given positive affirmation or negative tags that became labels. Did daddy call you beautiful, or something negative, like lard _ss? Did mom say great job Bobby , or did she look at your finger paint drawing , saying “What the H_ll is this, you will never be an artist.”
Positive and negative labels become planted in our minds, most people recall negative over positive labels,because they were hurt, ashamed, humiliated or shocked.
I really loved the movie call “The Help,” as it deals with negative labels acquired at birth. These women from all walks of life found a way to shed their false labels. rising above to encourage one another, making new positive labels to replace the lies of the old labels.
It’s time to let go of false labels! Do you have a pen and paper, I want you to do something for you that is life changing. Stop reading at this moment and go look in the mirror. Who do you see? Write down top negative labels about you that come to mind as you gaze in the mirror. Its time to change these old negative labels for new positive labels.
Jesus gave his life out of unconditional love for you and the sacrifice was worth the cost, that you may have eternity. Jesus died so that you may live. God showed you are priceless,. Never forget that.
Pray with me : Lord I want my true identity to show through you, in who you created me to be on this earth! Lord please forgive me for accepting false labels. I am more than a negative word spitted out to bring me low, I am your creation. You knew me when you formed me in my mothers womb. I am your child. I come to the cross submitting all false negative labels to you! Raise me up to remember who I am called to be, your labels flowing to my mind!
Lord, I know you can heal all my wounds caused by every false label, wrapping me in your redemptive love teaching me new labels in your word, like forgiven. (Eph. 1:7-8), secure. (Romans 8: 31-39), capable. (Phil. 4:13), valuable to God. (1 Cor. 6:20) , chosen and dearly loved. (Col. 3:12), New Creation (2 Corinthians 5:17), His Child (Ephesians 1:5)
Lord I know I am me, and I am uniquely and wonderfully made, beloved, the child of a King, I am who you say I am in Jesus name! Amen
Father God, we humbly come before You and we seek Your face, Lord God. Lord we praise You and thank You for all that You have done in our lives and all that You are doing and will do in our lives, in Jesus Name. Thank You, Lord God for Your mercy and grace; thank You for the forgiveness of sins and most of all, thank You, Lord God for Your love that You have lavished up us. Father God, thank You for Your Word and for the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, and direct our foot steps, in Jesus Name.
Lord, you alone are worthy to be praised; we worship You with all our hearts, minds, lives, and our strength.

Thank You for the valleys and for the storms; for if we never had a problem, we would not know what You can do; through it all, we praise You and give You all the glory. We place our faith in you alone!

Forgive us for giving into the lies and deceptions of the enemy; forgive us for entertaining thoughts that are lies and deceptive. Forgive us for becoming lukewarm and apathetic, in Jesus Name.

Purge and cleanse us all of all this lawlessness, impurities; let us be vessels of holiness and purity, a true reflection of You, Lord God. Let us be conduits and containers that carries Your Holy Fire everywhere; being a constant reflection of You to a world that is dark and cold.

It is only when we surrender completely and totally to You, we are transformed to being the light and salt. Let us not move ahead of You, nor lag behind You, let us walk with You in complete obedience to Your Word, Lord God. Let us not look to the right or to the left, let our eyes only be on You.

That our latter would be better than our past, proclaiming blood of Jesus upon us, that truth will prevail. Jesus is our King! Amen!
He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. . . . On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lord.
The word of God is all powerful, and when recited out loud, it is a weapon, the word is your spiritual sword, for combating the enemy in any area of your life. God’s word is awesome……I think I will go devour it! 🙂
DO YOU NEED A HEALING IN YOUR BODY!! For it is Written: He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction’s.
“Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.” ~ Jeremiah 17:14
“Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.” ~ James 5:14-15
“Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” ~ Isaiah 53:4-5
“But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD” ~ Jeremiah 30:17
Lord, Our nation cries out to you, humbling ourselves before you. Hurricane Florence is drawing near, and we humbly ask you to bring us out of our distress. Lord speak over the storm, “Peace be still!” Father rebuke the winds and the waves! We believe all will be well standing in faith and believing before the storm, a slow downgrade to below tropical status. Lord, cover us and protect us as we take refuge in you, our secret place. Lord, you are a strong-place for those who could not help themselves and for those people because of much trouble. You have been a safe place from the storm and a shadow from the heat. “Psalm 91:1-5 We live within the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered by the God who is above all gods. I believe that he alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him. God will rescue you from every trap and protects you from the fatal plague. God will shield you with wings, sheltering his people. His faithful promises are your armor. Now you don’t need to be afraid of the dark anymore, nor fear the dangers of the day;” Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Dear God, I pray for protection over our churches, families, and friends now and evermore. Our father let those who are tired come to you, the lost, the brokenhearted, the hopeless. I have heard it said that you love these people as you walk among them and save those crushed in the spirit.
I lift to you, these individuals, praying psalms 91 over them, covering them with your precious blood. I pray that you heal and bind up their wounds. They cannot hear, cannot see, cannot speak. They are blind, deaf, and ignorant of the truth. God, I’m humbly standing before you asking that you please open their ears, their minds, and their eyes. Some call them the scum of society, worthless, scavengers, unclean, and not savable. Lord, 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 the lost. Guarding the lost when your vessels of saints come in contact with them speaking truth and salvation, the light in your vessels, will not be your saints they see, instead, their Redeemer, their Savior!
Beloved words will turn lost to being found and the hopeless to having hope, being full of joy, all to be planted in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ with the assurance of salvation. Save them, God, our doors are open, and we welcome them into your house.
As she lay sleeping on the street, a gentle hand shook her awake, and she instantly felt the cold, looking around wondering who had awakened her this early. Tired and hungry, yet there was no one there, she smelled in need of a bath. She walked across the street, headed to the gas station, and asked for the key. As she set about her daily routine, she thought of how it felt to be free from the dysfunction of home. She was free from the hurt, the pain, the fear. The journey had been like trying to scale a mountain. Maybe this God, she had learned of at the last shelter, would lead her on the right path. But how? Many people judged her; they did not give her the time of day, let alone a kind word. God says his ways are simple. Are they simple enough for her? Where could she find God? Grabbing her backpack, she headed out and turned the corner, pushing away the feeling of hopelessness and headed to the soup kitchen for breakfast.
Free food a blessing called survival. Mmmm, the food tasted good! Today she had promised herself she would better herself by one item on her list. Maybe, prayer did work, slowly she bowed her head and prayed with the food worker, wondering if God was listening? God, please get me off the streets. Amen.
Unknowns to her in the spiritual realm, God’s angels lifted her prayer, caring it to the throne room, believing her one small prayer carried a mustard seed of faith, which allows something miraculous to happen. Because two or more had gathered in his name and prayed, ten thousand angels took flight and gathered to begin the fight. God answered her prayer. The battle cry went out for HER as angels cheered in heaven. God gave his approval. The army of angels got ready for battle and descended to earth to watch over their upcoming new convert.
Chloe was directly assigned to watch over her and protect her; her choices would be her own. The others would be around for back up. Chloe flew swiftly to her assignment as she journeyed down the street, on guard, close by her side. The young girl was twenty-five, so very thin, but tall and gangly, her hair was burgundy and dressed all in black. No piercing, just what she called dramatic make-up? Her clothes screamed for attention to body parts, not to the person herself looking past all the façade she was hiding under, was a woman who was lost, spiritually, holding on by a thread of sanity.
The girl felt like she was in a race, hurrying her feet seemed to know where they were going as she whisked away? She was practically running to get somewhere, and she had nowhere to go, making her laugh. Unfortunately, she never saw the door until it was too late, hitting her face-first, knocking her on her back. A hand quickly came down to help her up as she grasped to get up, looking into the face of a woman, maybe thirties, no make-up, a denim skirt, and cotton blouse that ascended to the elbows. The sun lite up her hair like a sunburst twisted on top of her head, bursting with color like the sun, shining vividly, reminding her of her natural color, as it fell loose from the bun.
“I am so sorry, are you OK?” Here let me help you up. As she looked into her eyes, she knew she could trust her. Joy insisted on buying her a coffee and pastry and explained she had just finished an interview due to layoff. Then her room-mate called and said she had moved out with no notice, which left her in a bind. They talked for two hours and a friendship formed. Joy asked if I would like to look at her place, maybe I would be interested, nodding yes, I smiled. If she knew I was homeless, I am sure she would not have offered. Joy’s residence was five blocks away. I was tired of walking when I arrived. It was a small two-story white house, located behind a take out joint. Joy’s apartment was on the second floor. We went up the stairs she said in warning “never bother the man downstairs, as he needs prayer because he is an addict. Joy unlocked the door and we entered a small cozy apartment with low ceilings. There was one bathroom with an old-fashioned claw foot tub that was calling my name. She quickly showed me the available bedroom, with a white dresser and a twin bed. Joy giggled and said Look, here is the best feature, opening the window and then crawled out on the rooftop and said, laying here at night you can see all the stars, and during the day get a decent suntan, as no one could see you due to tree coverage.
I liked Joy, she talked a lot and said if I wanted the room, she would give me a deal, the first month free, and she would provide all the groceries. I looked at her and quietly said; Are you sure? Joy smiled and said yes, silly. Within minutes, Joy had a new room-mate, never asked me my name, and quickly went out the door to run errands. I stood there dumb-struck, with a key in my hand, and walked into the bathroom, shut and locked the door and turned on the most beautiful noise I had ever heard, running water into a tub, I dumped all kinds of smelly salts and perfumes, unrobed and slowly slid into a hot heavenly bath. I had waited so long to be clean. The girl said loudly; Thank you, God! You answered my prayer! And unknown to her, her angel danced and sang in joy for her answered prayer and her thanks.
Earlier that morning, Joy left her building giggling. She was surprised she felt so energetic, as she had been awakened that morning at 4:30, crying in prevailing prayer. Most folks did not understand speaking in tongues and were quite afraid of it; to her, it was just as natural as talking. It was a quiet private language she used to prevail in spiritual battle. God used her to pray in the spirit. She was so excited during prayer this morning she had seen an image of the girl who was in her apartment. Joy had a vision the girl was soon to be a fragile new babe in Christ and was to be treated delicately, with respect. When her prayer time had finished, she quickly got up her prayer mat, her bible, and dressed for her interview. Afterward, she went to the local coffee house and got the rude vacating call from her old room-mate and in anger, flung open the door, without regard to others on the sidewalk. There was no way she could contain her excitement as she reached down to pick up the young girl. She did not have to look for her, God had brought her right to her feet. She felt the air around her was bubbly, charged, and the hair stood up on her neck and arms. She was standing in a God Defining Moment. Praise Jesus, she was being used as a servant of God and was on a mission.
Back at the apartment, the water in the tub was getting cold, time passed as she lay there, the calmest she had felt that in months. She closed her eyes and that’s when the attack came.
Chloe suddenly was at attention, as a dark spirit had entered the bathroom, it was quick and unmerciful in its attack. As the young woman took a deep breath suddenly her mind was besieged with thoughts of the past, and the pain swiftly invaded her heart and mind, she was in a place long forgotten, in a black void, where there was no light, she saw the Phoenix coming toward her and its anger preceded its approach. It nearly sucked everything out of her, it clawed at her with no remorse, the fangs digging into her flesh, Its claws dug into her and with its beak suddenly began scratching and ripping her flesh off of her body, she screamed: “God, save me.” Chloe fought like a true warrior and let out a war cry to bring reinforcements, fighting the demon hard to restore the peace, and stop the physical attach. The war cry brought the other angels and vacated the demon, the battle was won. God interceded, he answered her prayer, saving her. Chloe, her guardian angel, comforted her charge, ministering long into the hours of the night that she might sleep. Angles surrounded the room and outside the apartment building, on guard to protect, as many continued to guard Chloe and her charge, they prayed for healing, to remove wounds from the attack, they would survive. The angles began to devise a new strategy, an attack, usually of this nature, did not come for one so early in the process. She must be special. As they gathered, they prayed and ministered to the sleeping woman, and through God healed the wounds on her body. When Joy returned home she found her asleep and went to her prayer closet putting on the full armor of God, thanking him for his mercies are good every day!
I hope you will pray with me for the homeless in our nation!
In The Beginning Man Tried Ascending To Heaven via The Tower Of Babel. Now He Tries To Elevate His Existence Using Hallucinogenic Drugs. And, Since The 20th Century, He Continually Voyages Into Outer Space Using Spacecrafts. Prayer Thru Christ Is The Only Way To Reach Heaven.
