The way to be freed from anxiety worry and fear!

Well today I want to speak with you all about your worries and fears. WE have such a loving God. That if you did not know he does not want you to worry about anything. Weather your worries are small or big. He has it all for you and me. He is your source for everything, and I mean everything. If you are questioning what about (insert it here      ). Yes, he has that too. I do not even need to know what you put in that space. No not because I am anyone more then you, Remember I do not have any magic pill. To change anything in your life. But we have a Good Father that cares for you in me so much that he gave us the Bible. To let us know how much he cares for his children. Now, last week when I wrote on my blog post. I shared a little when you are going through tough times and that God will really stand with you. I gave you verses about even waiting on him in your tough times. Today, I want to give you the armer to have the scriptures when you start to feel like you want to have a fearful moment, or a worry filled minute instead of starting out with those kinds of thoughts. I would rather you have a journal filled with Gods word.

So, if you have not before this time copied down any Bible verses to learn. Today I pray you. Find a journal or a notebook whether it is on a computer, notebook or on a braille display. Get them written down and save them in anyone of the ways you can look at them until you learn them. 

There is no excuse to start doing this I will insure that if you start writing them down and reading them a little each day by the end of a few weeks’ time you will have them in your mind, heart and be able to retrieve  them for those hard times  not only should you write them down you should grab your bible and look at the whole chapter. Therefore, you can even learn what was going on when these words were shared. How did they really happen to give us the living word? Spend time with your word and most of all time with God. He will come alive for you like you have never seen him before. I know your tough times, worries, fears, and times that you are waiting on the Lord for him to change things in your life will change for your good and his glory. He loves us so much that he is a jealous God but not in a bad way. He loves us so much that his jealous spirit is truly for your good and his glory. He if you just take about five minutes each day. I know it will bring you to a different will for your life. I do believe your life will become sweeter and happier. For you will start to see like Jesus did. God loves you and me and will work in your life for sure. Your worries, fears and other issues will change. You may still have times of struggle, but I know that your time with that will be different because you will let him manage it all. Knowing that he will work it out better than ever. or you or could ever do alone. Why would you want to battle this crazy world by yourself? I love having someone else to carry my fears, worries and so much more. As I write this all to you, I am speaking to myself as well. I am learning just like you are. I am just proud that God wants me to share with the world the thoughts he gives me. Even in that journal, notebook, or braille display write out your prayers to him. Even go a step further and write down your hopes that you would like God to work on. I bet you start doing this. In weeks, months or even a year or so you can go back and see how you have changed and what he has done for you. I know this because just like you talk to a friend. Your conversation will change, and your prayers will also change to thanksgiving. I can even bet when you talk to your friends, family or even a stranger you will share something new with them. Gods’ words will just flow out from your mouth. I even see this happening in my own life. I do not worry about what the world thinks about Gods word. I just share it. As you see me for the last few years, I just heard God say to me share your life and what I have for you. That is why this Blog, and my podcast was created. I know they are not perfect and some days that bothers me. Hence, as I just keep on doing what it is I do. I know it will get better. And he will bless it for sure. I know we all have a story, and we all need to share it. So, stop your worries and fears get to reading and writing. it all down. Put your armer on and smile God has a joy filled life for you. Here are bible scriptures to help you on your study.

Isaiah 41:10 ESV Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

 

Philippians 4:6-7 ESV Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Psalm 56:3 ESV When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

 

2 Timothy 1:7 ESV For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power, love, and self-control.

 

Psalm 34:4 ESV I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.

 

Matthew 6:25-34 ESV “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. …

 

1 Peter 5:6-7 ESV Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

 

Joshua 1:9 ESV 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.”

 

1 John 4:18 ESV There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

 

1 Peter 5:7 ESV 

Casting all your anxieties on him because he cares for you.

When the world gives up on you!

When the world gives up on you. What do you do? Well, for me that is an easy question to answer. I keep looking up to the Lord. For he has not forgotten you. Your life may not be the way you think it should be. You may be facing a tough time. You may even blame yourself for all that has happened in your life. No matter what is going on in your life today. I just do not want you to believe the lies of the world and the enemy. I am here to share some GOOD NEWS of your Lord and Savior. He knows what you are going through. Remember he created not only the World really the universe. He created it all. From the stars to the planets, the insects to all the people and animals everywhere. no matter how you feel today or what you are going through. God has you in the palm of his hand. He will never let anything take you from his hand.

In life just live long enough and if you have not gone through something believe me you will. I can share He will be with you through it all. even if you do not believe it, he is not a man that can lie.

He knows you through and through.

Do I know why or how long you will have to wait on him if you are going through something. No as I write this I am going through my own storm and have been for longer than I want to really share but if you have been following me for any period. You do know my tough times are hard for me. Nevertheless, I know the Lorde is working through it all. Whether I like my storm or not. I know that God has not forgotten about his daughter. I also can share no matter how your life is going good or bad. God is on your side as well. He created you and me so why would he not care about your life. I can only share what I know, and it is not because I am anyone better then you. I just honestly believe the words of our Lord and savior. He shares so much with all of us. You have all that you need to know about what is going on. You just must read about it in God’s word. Trust him with all your life and sit back and watch him work. it is hard to stay prayed up or keep the faith when all is going wrong but stay in prayer and keep the faith. Others may have lost interest in your troubles. People may not understand. I can share that it is not easy when you are going through so much and there is no friend or person that really wats to share with you in your trials. Believe me no one wants to be with someone that is facing tough times. It is sad to share nevertheless, God is just a blink away from you. Even if he feels so far from you. He is working I honestly believe this. Do not give up on your dreams and your hopes. I am even sorry to say the Church may not even be in your corner. Because really, they say they get it but again there is no one like God to come through for you in your time of need. God really wants us to be there for each other but sometimes we need to go through it all by ourselves so when God is done with our troubles there is not one person that we can give credit to. God is the only one that will be standing with you.

I wish that I had some magic pill so you will not feel bad or go through your tough times. However, I do have something better that you can hold on to and get you through it all. The storms of life may be so hard for you that you do not know what to do. However, I can say keep looking to the Lord. Keep reading his word. Keep talking with him. Keep praising him with worship. Keep on sharing the Good News about him. Keep standing on his promises. Keep showing up for him each day.

He cares for you. He is working behind the scenes. There is just something I do believe that must line up before he changes what you are going through

Here is what he says about it all.

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3 ESV“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”” Isaiah 41:13 ESV“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2 ESV“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 ESV“Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. “John 14:27 ESV

here are more bible verses to hold on to. Write them out and keep them in the front of your mind to help you through this troubled time. If you are sharing well, I am not going through anything. Even better learn them now so when the time comes you have the armer to use against the evil thoughts that may come with your trial.

 

If you are waiting for the Lord to change your life keep waiting for his glory to come, he promises that your waiting is not for nothing. He shares a lot in his word about waiting on him as well. You are not lazy, or I am sure not trying all that you know to not be in this storm of life but realize that it is not a mistake that this storm has come. He shares as I have shared with you that Jesus never promises an easy life while we are here on earth. Here are some bible verses about waiting for Gods perfect timing. Psalm 145:15-16

The eyes of all looks to You,

And You give them their food in time. open Your handAnd satisfy the desire of every living thing.

 

James 5:7-8

Therefore, be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is nearby.

 

Luke 12:35-40

“Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may at once open the door to him when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them.

We also can go to the Book of Peter and see what he shares that the storms of life will come but put all your cares on to the Lord. He tells us that God can manage it all

 

One peter 1:3-10

3Praise be to the God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 6In all this you rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed

 

A prayer and rejoice to the Lord! Study six

Dear Heavenly Father,

Yes, you are the Lord of Lord and the King of Kings, you are the Great I Am. So, for that we sit by your feet to bless your name. I am so proud that you knitted me in my mothers’ womb. That you knew the plans you had for me before I was even thought of. That no part of me is a mistake. That you have me in your hands and no one can take me from them. That your love goes so deep and far. Because you loved me you made it so my sins can be washed away with your son being the one to bare them all. I know that there is not one part of my life that you are not a part of. Even when the road of life is hard, and we think you are no ware to be found. You are working in the mist of it all. I love that you orchestrate my steps. That I can count it all a joy when troubles come my way for you are building endurance for my long race of life. That no matter what No weapon will form against me. I know that you give me grace and mercy. That I am proud to sit at your cross and share the GOOD News of your son to the world. I know while I sit at the cross, I can cast all my worries. Your love and care will show up with all power for you to take care of every one of my worries.

I know there is power in your words like no other. I am thankful that I can rejoice in the valley for there is always a lily in the valley. That can show me that you are with me I pray for the world, the leaders that oversee any area of the world, and people that do not know you as you do want the best for all. That all you ask of us is that we believe in your son. Who did all the work for us to be forgiven? That are sins are no more because he came to take them from us. I am your child. I am favored by you. I am proud to carry my cross. I am hopeful because I know the love you have for me. I know this world has trouble however, you came to save us from it. Thank you for your will and your word. That shares if we follow you and read your word, we can ask anything in your name, and you will grant it to us. If it is your will. I am thankful that your word is like a double edge sward. I am blessed for you love me no matter what. I pray that anyone that reads this prayer they believe that they can be thankful for these words to you. Not because I wrote then to you because you give me the words to pray with others. To show them no matter what we are going through you are in the mist of it all. I pray that they see your love is real and true no matter what is going on in their life. That you will be with them for all there days of their life. I know you are working to make the wrongs of this world right. I know you are shaking us up for because there will be a time that your son will come back. And for that you really do not want anyone of us not to be with you in your kingdom to live with you forever. I praise your Glories name Lord. Thank you again for letting me be the one to have words for the world. I know I just want to stand behind the old rugged cross and praise your name to the world. I love you with all my heart.

Broken but favored study number five

last time I wrote on my blog not only did I give out more Bible verses to lean on and learn. I spoke about genesis37-50. the story of A man with a coat that of many colors – was looked over by his family.) But as we learned he was not looked over by God. The King of Kings and The Lord of lords. God gave him back his life better than anyone could have thought. He became a real King. I pray that as you have read that story you see how God can work in your life too. As I have read it for myself, I do see all the broken pieces of his (Joseph) life and how God made it all good for His (God) Glory. If you are broken today, there is hope like you have never seen before. Hold your head up high and know God will come through in his timing. Now, as I want to move on to another person in the bible, I hope you had time to look at a woman that was broken hence, she believes that God could come through for her. This story is in first Samuel 1-2 She was married to a man that had many Wives, but she knew that He loved her just as much as he loved his other wife’s. If not more. In fact, her husband knew that even through all her brokenness. That God had put over her a special blessing. Thus, as her husband gave his wife food ’s he made sure that she (Hannah) a bigger- double portion. 

Did you know the name Hannah means favored? Yes, it does. And if you read all about her life. you will see how she believe unto the Lord to just give her a child. Everyone even her, husband and family knew that God had made her worm baron. Which means she could not have any children. Nevertheless, Hannah cried out to the Lord about every day for a child. She was even mocked and teased by her husband’s other wifePeninnah. 

Hannah did not care what anyone thought she knew that if she stayed talking to God in prayer that he could make it posable for her to have a child. Hanahan at times would make herself faithful to the Lord in prayer that she would not eat and ask for this child that she so longed for. 
she even told God if he blessed her with a baby boy that she would then give him back to him to serve the Lord.

Well, again God does it in his own time. He blesses Hana with a baby boy. She keeps her word and gives her son up to serve the lord. Not only did God bless her with one son but because she was so faithful to the Lord, He gave her more children.

Now as you can see more of the story it is in the Old Testament book of First Samuel1-2. It shows how again God works miracles in another one of his children

Now if you have been following me for some time you may know that my life has many changes and challenges that I do not know what to do at times. Nevertheless, I am so thankful to the Lord up above. For I am very broken currently

I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I have so much hurt in my heart My struggles are hard and real. nevertheless, I know all I can do is believe God has a special dream for his child (teresa). Yes, if he did it for Hana and Joseph and so many more in the bible. My brokenness is for his Glory. I pray each day that his love, faith in me will glorify him each day.

I know he created me, and you and your brokenness are not a big deal for him. He will keep all his promises to you and me. No matter what you face each day

The next Bible verses that we need to look at are as followed:

James 1:2-3, Jeremiah 29:11

.

James 1:2-4

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Well, that is just a little of all the great promise’s that God has for you and me.

So again, hold on tight if you are having struggles in your life and think God does not have a better plan for you. For as you can see if he did it for others, he will do it for you.

Dear Heavenly Father, 

Thank you for our brokenness for you are the only one that is going to work it out for your glory and our good. As we have been studying all in your word and saving in our hearts the bible verses. We see that your grace is sufficient for us. As I know for me my life is all turned upside down. I know you are at work in my life to fix it all. I know that my faithfulness to you is tried and true. For it is hard to live in the world today but, you will always take care of your children. Just like you did for so many in the Bible. I thank you for showing us this in your word. I will just keep on trusting in your might to do what is needed for my life. I know my readers will do the same. And at the appointed time we will see you like no other work miracles in our life. Thank you for that my Lord. Jeremiah 

[11] For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

[ shows that you really do care about us. So again, Thank you Lord.

I pray all my thankfulness to you and your glorious sons name Jesus Christ AMEN!

Next you may want to look at the life of Job.!

A boy with a coat of many colors and a real true king! Study number four

This is week four, if you have been following my Bible verses and study. Here is the next one, if not, that is ok. you can start here and learn or if God leads you to go back and start from the beginning feel free to do so. My posts are going to live on longer than I. for that is How the internet works. Once you put something up it is there forever. So, watch what you post. Nevertheless, let us go to a remarkable story that I asked you all to look at last week. Now, that is a story that has and will live on forever and has everlasting meaning. It is the story of Joseph A young man who got a coat of many colors that caused many unhappy brothers, yet it brought Joseph to be a great King.

Now if you did not look at the story or do not know where it is. It is in the Old Testament in the book of Genesis 37to 50. these thirteen chapters teach us so much more then I can ever share. Not only do they teach more than I can ever share. Each one of us will get something different out of the story. It is a story that will teach us many different things no matter how many times, we go back to it. God created the Bible to be an everlasting book for all centuries.

 

However, today I want to share with you the thoughts that God brought to my heart while I was reading the story.

Well, if we start at the first chapter of Genesis 37. We read a young boy was loved more than his other brothers by his father. Which caused him to get a coat of many colors. Not only did his father show more love to Joseph then to the other brothers. Our heavenly Father was also showing joseph that he would have wonderful things happen in his lifetime by dreams.

While Joseph was sharing with his family, what he saw by his dreams. His family grew to not like him even more. His father knew that God brought more to Joseph than any other family member, as that happened the father just knew to keep quiet.

Yet, as the story goes on just in the first chapter his brothers did not like the favor, the Joseph had over his life. Therefore, when they the brothers were working out in the field. The brothers wanted to do something to their brother really, they wanted to kill him nevertheless, one of the oldest brothers shared that, that is not something they really should do. hence, the brothers listened to their older brother. Still not being happy about joseph being favorite of their fathers they agreed to put him in a pit. While most of the brothers were eating bread-taking a break- from the work they were doing. There was a caravan of Ishmeelites that came from Gilead with their camels. The brothers agreed to sell their little brother for twenty pieces. To the Ismalights. Wow, what a loving family

As they did so a little while one of the other brothers came by the pit that he thought his brother was in. Rubin, the brother then said let us take the coat and bring it back to our father with some kids of goats’ blood on it and let our father think he was killed. 

 

Well, the father did think that his son was killed and shared with all the family. That life would not be the same and his sadness would go on until his meeting with his grave.

While that was happening at Jacobs home. The end of just the first chapter shares with us. Josephs new life was not going to be easy at any point it now starts out that He was sold again

And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh’s, and captain of the guard. Now, genesis thirty-eight takes us on a back story about the brother of Joseph who was one who had the idea to sell Joseph his brother Judah. God takes us on this back story therefore we can see how sin can take hold of us. If we do not do what is correct

Genesis 39 brings us back to what is happening with Joseph as he was told in more than one dream by the Lord, he was going to rule over many.at this time, this is not what is happening. Now Potiphar does see that God has his hand upon him. As a result, Potiphar entrust, him with all that he has. How one might think that is great nevertheless, now, happens Joseph meets Potiphar wife. Who is not so happy to have him among her household? So, she tries to trick Joseph to sleep with her. Where Joseph realizes that he is not going to let his master down and do such a deceitful thing, so he flees Joseph also knows he did not want to dishonor God.

Potiphar wife did not care about God or the truth she just wanted Joseph not to have the power that her husband gave him so, she made her lie a story for all to here.

Potiphar believe his wife so now; Joseph story gets harder for him. He is thrown into Prison bounded and chained. To sit for years and years. God shows a special hand over him, as a result, the prison guard shows him favor. Letting him take care of all that is in his prison area. 

Now as we approach Genesis forty, the prison gets two more prisoners. The king of Egypt charges his chief baker and Cup Bearer into the prison. For doing something wrong against the King. The prison guard puts them in the ward with Joseph. Therefore, now Joseph must look over them. As the story goes the two of the kings’ men have a dream. And joseph finds out that they are sadden by bye the dreams they have. Yet, Joseph shares that he can decipher dreams with Gods hand upon joseph. So, the two men share the dreams they have with Joseph. 

During this time joseph also shares if when they get out of the prison that they do not forget about him. Nevertheless, they forget about young Joseph, we now come to chapter Forty-one, where Joseph is sitting for about another two years. Time is passing and all have forgotten. A side note always remember No matter what is happening in life God never forgets anyone of his children. But let us get back to the13 chapters that teach us so much about having a heart that waits on the Lord no matter the situation. 

In this next part if you have read on during the end of Josephs last second year in prison. The Cup Bearer was with Pharaoh.

And Pharaoh Shared with him that he had a dream that he felt he needed to know. Now, the Cup Bearer did remember Joseph currently. Because As Pharaoh

Shared and tried to find all in is kingdom. an answer to his dream. Pharaoh

Could not find anyone to give him the answer to his dreams. Pharaoh Also shared with his cup barer the two dreams he had. Suddenly, the Cup barer remembered his days in prison and the young man Joseph. SO, the Cup Barer told Pharaoh About Joseph. As the cup barer shared with Pharaoh.

He (Pharaoh) Asked for them to get Joseph from the prison. Joseph had to clean up himself to see Pharaoh. as joseph went to Pharaoh.

He shared with him that he   could only decipher dreams because God was with him. joseph listened to all that Pharaoh.

Had to say about the dream. then Pharaoh

Was so grateful with Josephs answers to the dream that he let him rule over all of Pharaohs Land. Now joseph knew that this was only because of Gods favor over him.

At this time as I have shared most of the story with you all I do not want to give you it all not because I do not want to share with you how the story goes. hence, I know God may have a little different revelation for you just know as I am sure you do there is still about nine more chapters, and we only got to Joseph being around 30 years of age. The story now has an uphill life to it for Joseph. Then Joseph gets to help his family with all that God really trusts him with. As we see in this story the evil is brought to good for Gods glory. If you know the story of Job. His life changes for good as well. And as we wait on the Lord and not our understanding. God will bring it all to pass in his timing.

Now, the story in the bible will always be the same 

however, at this time I want to share with you all what God has at this time shown me. Waiting on him is more magnificence than anything else we can do. As last week I spoke about living in the valley with a lily. You may be in the valley. We see that Joseph was in the valley for most of his life waiting and waiting and waiting on the Lord to make it right. it was a little over 20 years for God to humble Joseph and show him romans 8:28.

This journey started when he was seventeen until about 37 years of age.

Now as we have read the story and just turned page by page it was not that easy for joseph to live in the valley. Nevertheless, Gods hand was over Joseph. I do believe that gods hand is over every one of his children. However, the lessons that I have learned over the years in this story have been priceless. 

 

Let me share what I mean by this. God has showed me even when I am in the valley, he will do for you. It may not be the way you want it. The world may turn on you. You may feel like no one wants to hear your story or help you while you are in your valley. Yet, the waiting is long, but the lessons will come. He will make it right in his timing. Now, with all the years that Joseph was wronged, or people did not believe in his dreams that God had for him. He had hope. He had no bitterness or unforgiveness in josephs heart. during this time of waiting. He was or had a great heart for all. Showing the love of the Lord. As my words end for today’s long blog

Just know as we have read the story of the Coat of Many Colors. The waiting and the mishaps all happened. With Romans 8:28 and Genesis 50:20 God was in the mix for sure with all his glory all over it. YES, AND AMEN!

 

Now if you were thinking where our bible verses are to keep in our heart and m. rise 

Well, you should know at this time it is Romans 8:28 and Genesis 50:20 which state

Romans 8:28 [28] And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Genesis 50:20 you thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive.

[

 

Also, now this week if you have time which we should always be available for the Lord.

I would like you to look at the life of a woman who name means favor and grace. Do you know who this woman is?

It is Hanna this story is found in First Samuel -2 read up until verse twenty-two in first Samuel 2.

She is a woman that trusts God for a child. It is another powerful story about waiting on the lord to make it right in your life. Believing in the impossible that only God can do what no one else can. When you trust fully only in him for all. 

 

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me the bible that gives us your children the truths of what you can do when the world. Gives up on your children. When the world lies to us. About what is right and wrong. I am so thankful for your words that tell us. That you will see your children through it all. Stories like Joab, Joseph and Hanna I know that there are many more people in the bible that show us the power and glory that you have for us. When we trust in you fully. I know that I have a roman 8:28 and a genesis 50:20 lifestyle waiting in the wings. I will share all the days of my life no matter what your glory that you have for me and my brothers and sisters. I am so proud that I can study your words and your truths. That so many people have gone before us. To see how wonderful, you are to us. Even when we do not deserve it. That your son gave his life for us, I know in the next few days we will be celebrating your sons return his raising from the death was not for anyone else but your children to see how much you loved us. Taking your son’s life to save us from our sins. To bring your glory back to us. To see you are the only truth and light. That with taking your son’s life we now have everlasting life in your kingdom. if we know the son Jesus Christ. We will live forever in heaven with you and the rest of the saints. I just want to lift u up. Today the whole Bible. For your words, every part of the delightful book is full of your truths to us. There is not one word that will go void. You as you know are the same yesterday today and tomorrow. I thank you for that my gracious Father.

For that I can only Bough down to you, my Lord. The King of Kings. And the Lord of Lords.

I am thankful today and every day. to see you rain in this world. I am thankful to prays your name. thank you, lord, for all each day.

I just am so thankful for you, and I know my life is fuller with you by my side. I may be struggling today however, that is just a blink of an eye for your dreams and truths to rain in my life soon. Waiting on you may be hard at times but it is. Not one day shy of what you have for me and your children.

I love you. and thank you even more. 

In your son’s name Jesus Christ AMEN!

Thank you for taking out the time and reading my story of blessing to my Lord and Savior! I know there was something else you could have done; however, you took the time to see what God shared with me to share with you and the WORLD! many blessings to you and your family!

In the valley with a lily! Lesson and study number three

Well, we are in our third week. If you have been following my study. How has it been going for you? For me God is good and yes, good all the time. Even though I am in the valley a good friend of mine told me yesterday, “you maybe in the valley Teresa, however you know, or you should know God has a Lilly while you are there.”

I had to think about that for a little while nevertheless, she is correct. even though my life is not where I would like it. God has taken care of me. I want you to look at your life no matter what is happening. Do you live in the valley right now? Or are you sailing on what I would call auto pilot? What I mean by autopilot is life is going well and you do not have to worry about really too much.

Well, today no matter where you sit in life. We need to make sure the first thing we are doing is sitting with the Lord and bringing all of us to him.

So, as I would like you to do with me in this week’s study. 

Let us learn two more bible verses. However, I Want you to get out your bible and study the life of Joseph. That is in the book of Genesis 37to genesis fifty.

The reason I want to go there this week as I was thinking about what my friend was saying to me. Is if we take any character in the bible not one of them had this perfect life. Now, Jesus was perfect yet, he did not have a perfect ride when he was on earth. Jesus, had to battle a lot. 

Therefore, as I share this with you all. No matter where you are in life. the battles will come, the trials will follow you.it is just how do we deal in our life to see the Lilly when we are in the valley of our life’s challenges.

Joseph has a lot to share with us. He did start out when he was a young boy, and you see all the way to his death. It is a remarkable story to look at this week. As you read the words of Josephs life do not think as you read and turn the pages that it happened in a blink of an eye. He had to wait and wait and wait on the lord.

Read and really sit in the story. See how the valley of joseph’s life had valleys but the lilies were there for sure. How he stayed positive while his trials kept on happening. See what God pulls out for you while you are in your study. I know each one of us will be brought to a different part of his life and learn so much while reading this remarkable story of a young boy that was given a coat of many colors.

Now here are the next few bible verses that we need to …

study 

Matthew 6:33-34 John, (16:33

Matthew 6:33-34 ESV but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

 

John, (16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

 

Dear heavenly Father,

I come boldly to your cross. As I stand behind the old rugged cross today and give my thoughts to my readers. I can only pray your face is showing to all that are reading this for your glory. I know we do not know what life will bring our way. Weather we are on auto pilot or in the valley of our lives. I know when we follow you it is not always going to be an easy life as you share in your words. Hence, you have us in every part of our lives. I know this for you share this with me. In your words Matthew 6:33-34 ESV but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Father, yes, tomorrow is not ours. I am proud to read in Mathew that      you tell us to just keep on following you and your kingdom. And all will be added unto us. For your will not ours. I love that me and my readers are going to look at the life of joseph to see just that. How you provided for him however, the season was for Joseph. I also know that you in say John, (16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world I know some of my readers are in the valley and are having trouble trying to see the glory in it. But there is a Lilley to be found. I do believe that johns words tell us that so well. I know you will come through with it all for us in your timing. You have shown us this just by reading your word and getting closer to you. I share again with you. All that I have been learning in the last three weeks for there is power in your words

1 John 5:14–15 

14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him john 15 :7

7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

Joshua 1: 5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Psalms 139:23–24 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; evaluate me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there are any offensive ways in me and lead me in the way everlasting. yes, lead us on that path that only you know is the correct. The one that will last for eternity in your home with your son. Thank you for that father for sure!

All I can say I love you Lord with all my heart no one can do for me like you can, and we see that so well.

So, with that father thank you again in your son’s glorious name Jesus Christ Amen!

Happy reading and learning may God show up like never before for you that is my prayer for all!

 

 

God‘s word and promises! Study number two

     Today we are going to study two more bible verses into our lives. Last time we studied James 4:3, first John 15:14–15, and John5:5–7. If you have studied and put these bible verses into your heart, and really ask God for his presents in your life, then we should see the Lord work better than ever before. That is my prayer for my life and yours. Today we are going to study two verses that will show us that God is or will come back into our lives. If you are feeling like He is not with you at times, these are great bible verses to stand on along with the first three we did. They are as follows: Joshua 1:5, and Psalms 139:23–24 (NIV).

Joshua 1: 5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 

Psalms 139:23–24 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; evaluate me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there are any offensive ways in me, and lead me in the way everlasting

now, add those to your list and use them each day in your daily prayer and let us see God come back to life for us.

Dear heavenly Father, As I come boldly to your feet,father, I know you hear me for you say in John 5:14-15, “This is the confidence we have in approaching you Lord: that if we ask anything according to your will, you will hear us.” Then you share that, “And if we know that you hear us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of you, Lord.” As I have been praying your words back to you, Lord, I know the power you will have to bring it all into the earthly places that I go for your will. As you tell us in john 15 :7, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

Now, before I share with you, Lord, the needs I have, I also want to share that you say Joshua 1:5 “No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” and Psalms 139:23–24,“Search me, O God, and know my heart; evaluate me and know my anxious thoughts. 

See if there are any offensive ways in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Father, I ask you to help me and my readers first to keep on learning your word, and keep us as protected as needed in this worldly time,where people are not truly seeking your will or face for their lives. Let us have no worldly sickness. Help us to keep on telling the world about your son, who has given us grace and mercy to be able to keep your word nearby and in our hearts. I know my life and my readers lives are not as filled, without your love and protection, so as I keep on praying, help us, father, to be effective in your world, for your love and glory is what I hope for in the days and years to come. I know we are not perfect but that is why we can lean on your son for all. I thank you for that, my gracious Father, I know that in James 4:5, which we are not doing, but I want to show that we know this is the way to make sure we are approaching you with correct motives, in what we need you will help us through it. You share,“When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” 

 I do not want my pleasures. I know my readers and I are looking for your perfect will for our lives. Thank you for the bible that shares with us the truth of your protection. I ask all of this in your glorious son’s name,Jesus Christ, AMEN!!!

Do not forget to write these verses out for your learning about Gods promises. Please, I encourage you to go read these passages in their full context to see what God was doing in the lives of his children, to see him really come alive in your life.

Lord as I know this is not wrong of us to ask for your help in all things. I thank you that your word is so alive and true. I pray that you fill our hearts and minds with the power to feel your presents each day. By us learning and sharing I know we will see you like never before. And father I know this is your will to abide in you and you will abide in us.

Thank you, lord, for this help today, and all the help you will give us in the days to come. Sit with us each morning and evening to keep us in check with being always with you.
