While are enjoying all that I have to share with you. Why not bring along your favorite cup of coffee or beverage. How about bringing me one too. You may be asking me. How is this possible? By supporting me. Here are the avenues to do so.
In life we all have dreams of what or how we want our life to be like. We never want to believe that we may have a life changing event happen to us, where our life will get flipped upside down. Maybe even having our dreams crushed. Where it may have us believing that we may never see the dreams we have come to pass. Well Today I would like to share an amazing life changing story about a young man. Who has this type of story. I have the honor to invite him on my show and interview him. I am so thankful to him and God for trusting me with sharing his life story with the world.
Yes, at the age of 19 his world flips upside down. His dreams come to a crashing halt. Let me share with you. My new dear friend and brother in Christ is Luke Seibert. I would love for you to check out my pod cast. For this young mans amazing story. I could not put his story in to words. For it would not be told as it needs to be. Just by me sharing it on my blog. So, I invite you to have a listen to my latest podcast. To hear Luke’s ever changing life’s story. From Luke himself. I have to share as you will hear in this podcast episode. He shares so much with me about his life. That even while I am interviewing him. Luke keeps surprising me with it all. There are so many twists and turns on how he comes through it all.
If you do not have faith in the Lord or are questioning your faith. I want to share I would be surprised if after you hear Luke’s story. You do not say. OK God I cannot, not believe in you. I cannot doubt this is not your mighty hand at work.,
I want you in my life Lord. I have to share Luke even helps me in my vision loss. He is a man that teaches me a few things about being able to get through my blindness. So, as I share this interview with you all. I know God sent him my way just to help me in my loss of vision. Not only to be a story for the world to hear on my podcast.
Thank you for this interview with Luke. I pray that his story reaches far and wide. As you know all you can do for your children. No Matter the storms of life. I know you do not cause anything to really hurt us. Life on earth is hard because we live in a fallen world. I know as Luke dose too. That you are a good God. That as our lives may turn in ways we do not understand. You will always keep us in the palm of your hands. That no weapon will form against us. That as we live our lives. We need to just hold on to your word that you will get us through it all. The struggles may be hard, we truly are blessed. And as I have learned we are not alone. No matter the storms of life. Thank you always for letting me always have great fellowship on my podcast. To share with the world. I pray this interview it blesses others to know you as we do Lord.
In Jesus Name Amen
Episodes show notes:
This week’s episode is all about my Guest Luke Seibert. Luke shares with us his life changing event. How this life changing event brings him on a journey that no one really saw coming. How God really is awesome. In bringing your life back no matter the storms of life
Luke Seibert lives in north Alabama and is the oldest of seven children. He has a background in carpentry and construction, but since becoming blind, has become an author and gone back to school. He enjoys writing novels, doing woodwork, and playing bluegrass music. Over the past few years, he became heavily involved in the National Federation of the Blind and serves on the board of the Alabama Association of Blind Students. Today, he is enrolled at Midwestern Baptist Seminary and preaches regularly at the church he attends.

It is really early. However today I must write to you all. I need to share. The Devil will not have me believe the Lies of this world. Today as I am doing this podcast. Writing my journey story. The storm is getting hard. Yes, the struggles are real, but my God is bigger then the lies of this world. Let me share with you all. I think because I am now doing a podcast and sharing my story out. The storm is starting to really brew. I am watching from a distance. As I am also living out this struggle. As people are getting away with doing me wrong. They maybe climbing the latter. Let me first share I do not wish any hardship on anyone. NO not at all.
It is absolutely amazing how my life flipped upside down. In a million ways since I have come to Texas. Let me share my life has never been easy. No not in one way. As I have started to share with you all on my podcast. If you know me, you will know for sure this truth. For you have seen it play out as I have.
Nevertheless, as I do and will keep on doing for my whole life. I will share GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! NO MATTER THE STORM!
Yes, that is a truth that I can hole on to for sure.
Let me now share with you. All of a sudden, every item that I spoke about in my podcast like the 72,000.00 debt, the court case for my EEOC claim is showing up. I am glad that it is coming to pass. What I mean by this is, they are and have been playing with my life for too long. By not wanting to speak with me. No, they really still do not want to speak with me. They just want to send me stuff. Saying that I am not correct or that I have no rights in my statements. I was even told by someone yesterday. I am having more issues because I worked there. They feel like I need to be held at a higher standard.
I get no answers to my questions. I cannot believe that one person could cause so much trouble for me. Then get away with it. They really are playing a game with me. It is not ok but as I do say it really is ok. That they are playing games with me. I always have shared during this process. I did not do anything to deserve this. However, if I am wrong in any way, I will do what is right. That God knows the truth of it all. He will always supply all that I need. I do wish people would really learn I am a God GIRL. What I mean is you can be mean to me. You can treat me bad. You can tell lies. However, even if I did do something wrong. I will sit down and make it right. Also, I know I will not let anyone walk over me. That God is going to get the glory for it all. The miss treatment in this let’s call it a debacle. Is so wrong but God will carry me through it all.
I cannot believe how some people get away with there lies. Again, nothing is going to bring me down for long. For I serve a God who I trust fully with my life.
Yes, I do!
I have walked away from so many things. That I knew were wrong. Where people would have said to me. Just stay. You cannot do it (leave that is). Pretty much telling me that I have to conform to the lies of this world. That my job or whatever is not correct is the only way to make it in this world.
Well, as I am sharing NO I will not lay down for the wrongs of this world. I serve a MIGHTY GOD!
If I do what is right and even if I am not right at times. As long as I do my best and not conform to the lies of the world. God will get me through this for sure.
He will do the same for you. Be truthful in all you do. It will work out in the end. I know this for sure. It is just sad that this has happen. I did all that I could. I DID MY JOB. I Gave then all they needed during this time. With the correct documents.
Now let me share I will sit at this table before my enemies. Yes, let me share God will set a table before my enemies. He will fight this battle for sure. If I am wrongly convicted. I will take my judgement and do my time. Whatever time is for me. Hence, let me share with you God will give me the strength to get through it. HE will help me get through it all. He will provide me the outlet to serve the judgement. He will get the glory at the end. I know I am not perfect. I have done all that I can. I have put this on the alter for the Lord. So, as I always share LET’S GO GOD! YOU TAKE THE WHEEL!
I pray if you are going through a storm of life you. Just grab on to Gods word. Do not let anyone tell you he is not there for you. That you just have to conform to the lies of this world.
If I am found guilty of the lies of the world it is ok. For if I can share with you God will show up and help you with it all.
If you feel you have nothing at this time. Let me share you do. It is the only thing you need. Sorry if you are not a believer in Christ. This may be hard for you to hold on to or believe.
BUT I have to share and yes it will be all in capital letters. For I am shouting it out to the world to hear.
MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY IF HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE HE WILL DO IT AGAIN!
I will say it again.
MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY IF HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE HE WILL DO IT AGAIN
Today as I am writing this of course I am playing praise and worship music.
As I do so many times. No matter what is going on.
Let me share it is the best of Anthony Evans. I just asked my home device to play music. I should have known! She would here from God. And play Anthony Evans first out of the box.
The first song was See it again. Then sing a Hallelujah. Then Fighting for us. Going on and on.

Thank you too all! 😊
dear heavenly Father,
I come boldly to you at your feet. I know you have the best plans for all of us. No matter what the world is going through. I know you have your children in the palm of your hands. This road may be long. This road may be hard. But I serve a MIGHTY GOD! You will supply all my needs to your riches and glory. Philippians 4:19. I know the plans you have for me. You declare them over your children Jeremiah 29:11. You will never leave us. I can do all things with you Christ who strengthen me Philippians 4:13.
Just thank you for making the way. When I do not see the way. I pray as I always do. For my readers, listeners, friends, and anyone who needs to be lifted up to you Lord. You
are the beginning and the end.
I pray all this in your sons Glorious Name Jesus Christ Amen!
here is the link for you to click into my podcast and hear any one of the 8 shows. I have done so far.
Please if you are new to my podcast. I invite you to listen to more than one before you make a choice. Just know For as I do share, I am new to this all. I am not perfect with them. It is a great work in process. God is the Glory to this all. I am sure I will get better in time. Why not watch me grow in it? With God by our side. All is possible.
In these uncertain times we all need to remember each day who to lean on. If you are trying to handle your life all by yourself. That may not be the best thing to do. One may say but if I do not do it all how will it get done?
Well today in my newest-latest podcast I Share a little more about my life and my struggles. I also tell you where I go for all that I need in my life. That I lean on God to be my source and Resource. Yes, as I shared in my last blog post. I am currently out of work for I feel and no at this time. I needed to let go of that job. As we all need a job. We all need to know that there are times we need to make changes in our life if things are making us sick or not in our best interest. Let me also share with you. Never try to jump the gun when making a big change in your life. One should always seek out with Prayer and supplication to the Lord what to do. Philippians (4:6-7). I never or try never to just do something with out leaning on God first. I do believe that he is my source and resource for all. I do believe I cand do all things with his strength. Philippians (4:13).
I also do know and lean on Philippians (4:19). He will take care of me. If he does it for me, he will do it for you. As he says in the book of Mathew (6:26) If he does it for the birds. What more will he do for you? I am no better than you. I have just at a young age always believed in my God. As I have shared in my podcast. People may not have believed in me. There were not too many times where I was given encouraging words to get through what I was doing in my life. However, I did not and will not let the lies of this world drag me down. I know that I may be alone at times (physically), but God says in his word that he will never leave or for sake me. Hebrews (13:5) and Deuteronomy (31:8) Yes, we all will go through something at some point. For God shares in his word we are on this earth and while we are. We will have trials of all kinds. Read the book of James for he shows you that we need to count all are trials a joy. That God is working them out and will give his children wisdom to get through them. God is also doing it for you but with his Glory attached to your story. Romans (8:28) We all put our pans on the same way, and what I mean by that. IS that we are all truly – all the same! We just will encounter different trials in our lifetime. If you have been listening to my podcast now on a regular basis you have even heard stories from others that have life struggles -storms. That have really showed them that God is there for them. Some of the people on my show that I interview will have just a small struggle (but is huge to them) others will have life changing events that make them really Grapple with God. Asking WHY ME! Or why my child. But with in time God has revealed to them he has a greater plan in store for them in their life. God showed up just letting them know to trust in him. That their faith and thanksgiving will get them through it.
I even in this week’s show-podcast-episode share with the listener that I am struggling with something this week. Asking you all to pray for me. For we all need prayer from one another. I show you that I am real. That as I do this week’s episode. I question God not saying why but just asking am I really the right person for this job. However, I know I am because as I am no better than you all. God has gotten people to share with me how my podcast has helped them. I know I have a life story to tell as well as you have a story. Therefore, God has blessed me to be able to not work at this time and move forward on this vision he has brought to me.
I thank you each week for listening, reading my blog, following me, sharing my message with others.
Letting me email you or text you when a new podcast or blog post comes out. For I know it is God working in and through me. But I have to be honest at times it is extremely hard, but God will always be there to lift me up. As he will do the same for you. I just pray as you hear my words each week. If you do not lean on the Lord learn to do so.
Not because I tell you too but because God is there to help us all. If you believe, trust, have hope, and faith in him God. He will show up for you. Even if you are on the fence with him – God. I ask you to just seek him out. He will show up for you too. All it takes is a conversation. With him. Please do not let the lies of this world tell you any different. Seek him out give him a try. Test him. He will show up for you. Better than you would ever think.
I do want to share with you. Please just do not think he is like a genie. God does not grant 3 wishes. You cannot rub on a lamp. He does not just do all that you want him to do. He has a purpose and a plan for your life. Jeremiah (29:11). I can share his promises are real and true. No man or woman can promise you anything like he can. Again, seek him out not only by speaking to him, pray -talk with him, read his word, find a local church. then just wait and watch your life change. Now remember. Life may still be hard at times, but he will work all things out for you in his timing and for his glory. Romans (8:28).
Here is my latest podcast for your listening enjoyment! May god be the Glory for it all.
Your Sources and resources where do you lean teresa shares where she leans to get them.
Again, thank you for all you do each day. Even When we do not see you and think you are not working. We know that as your word says. You have a grater plan in store for us. This world is filled with so many lies. That I am so thankful that your word (Bible). Tells us different. Thank you for being the right on time God. Thank you for the struggles in life no matter how hard they are. For me do know no matter what the struggle is you are working it out for me and others. I am so proud to share my story with the world showing how you are my source and resource. Thank you for showing up every day with me. Doing a better work in and through me.
Thank you, for my listeners and my readers. No matter what life brings their way. I pray every time they read or hear me, they see you before they see me Lord. Thank you as well for all the stories -interviews you let me feature. Showing the world how you are working in and through them.
I pray that you bless all that I do for you and bless my listeners and readers too.
God is so good to me! Yes, he is for you for sure. Did you know he is good to you too? I do care about you; however, I want to share no matter your struggle-storm of life GOD WILL GET YOU THROUGH IT! Please do not let the lies of the world tell you any different about YOUR GOD! I do have great faith. I lean on him for everything and I mean everything. I have no job Today not because I do not want to work. It is because I had a great job working for the Government nevertheless, I could not do it anymore. No, it was not because it was too hard for me. No, it was not because I lost my sight. It was because I was getting BULLIED By my boss just about every day. I did my job. I made sure all my work was done. If anyone ever asked me to do any part of my job or even if it was not a part of my job I did help out and do it.
I do need to share I had a positive attitude just about every day. I took my issues to anyone that would listen Nevertheless, this bully (they know she is one) however they let her get away with being a bully. So, one day I had my share. I tried my hardest to not quit. I prayed everyday to my God. He did hear me. I know he does here me. I asked him to change me and this bully for his goodness.
The sad part of this story is I liked this bully. I wanted to work hard for her. I was told she was not a good Person by so many people. Nevertheless, I did not want to believe it at all. For I know not everyone is liked by everyone. I have been in leadership roles. So, I get it but what I do not get and will never get is….
Why do some people feel like they are the end all and be all? when they or we all have a job to do. That is not my story. I pray for her every day. I forgive her.
I did all that I could. One day I had enough so I prayed to God asking what I can do. He showed me that I needed to just quit. I had a lot of people praying for me at this time. For I knew this job was a good one. I have to share even though it was a good job. God had a bigger plan for me. Yes! So, he showed me one day it is time Teresa! I prayed and prayed God please no Let me stay. Then I ask God to really show up. Now let me let you know he was showing up. Even though I did not like the answer.
This one week I went into my job and from the start of my day. She was on me for everything. I even shared with her to please stop. I am doing my job. Well, she did not. I even took a few days off. I prayed and prayed. God shared in my spirit it was time.
I even said to God this one morning, you are going to have to hit me over the head. lol I am not sure; I am hearing you. Give me one more sign. Well, he did. I walked into that job that day and there she was at my desk on me again. So, I had enough. I let her leave my area. I put in for some leave so I could use up all my time. The next thing I Knew she called me at my desk. Sharing that I could not have all my days off. Then I just said I needed to have a meeting with her. She told me she had only 30 mins but that I could see her now.
Well, I went up to her office. I let her know I was done with all of it.
That I was resigning in two weeks. That I had had enough of her bulling me. That I did my job to the best of my ability. That I did my job because it was my job. But I also always did my job to the best as well because I knew she need me to, and I wanted her to look good with her boss. For she had at this time a big deadline to meet. I wanted to make sure we met that deadline. She at first told me I could not quit. Not really because she cares but because I owed the government $72,000,.00. I told her yes, I know what I owe. However, I could not take her being the way she was to me. I share that God would help me in all that I had with my life. That I did not want to keep coming to a job where I was being treated bad by someone. And no one care. That I was taking the power away from her being a bully to me. That I know this is a job, but God is my source and resource.
You may be asking why, are you sharing this story.
Well, it is because I today am not out of that 72,000.000debt. I cannot find a job as of yet not because of this issue. I do not get my full DSSI check not because of what I owe at this time. I am fighting all of it. Yes, I am living on my savings for over almost 2 years. I am leaning on my God who shows me every day. He has my back. I at this time am living better then most. I am not trying to be too proud in this life changing time.
I am just sharing because I need you to know GOD will get you through it all. No matter, the struggle -storm of life.
I lean on my God not this world. GOD IS MY SOURCE AND RESOURCE. I now am doing a podcast as you all may know. I have been doing this blog.
To show the world God does care and he will show up right on time for you. If he is doing it for me, he will do it for you.
Please check me out each week not only here but on my podcast to share my struggles and other peoples struggles so you can see how God is working in people’s life.
How my life may be a struggle, but God is working in the MIST of it all. I have a Romans 8:28 life. I have a Philippians 4;6-7,4:13,4:19 lifestyle I have a Mathew he will supply all my need lifestyle.
I lean on my Bible for everything in my life. I am not perfect. I do have many struggles. My struggles are hard. YES! I am now Blind but Please read my words and know GOD IS FOR YU AND NOT AGAINST YOU. Deuteronomy31:8 is so real and true. He will not leave you or forsake you. Everyone else in his world will at some point.
I know my story of how God is working in and through me now has to be told. Not because of who I am but because who I serve everyday MY GOD!

Mandy shows us that in her life her struggles. Are HUGE. She is not sad about anything that she has faced. We all need to just sit back and listen to Ms. Mandie.
I am so blessed to now call Ms. Mandy a dear friend and a sister in Christ.

I know your life will not be the same after hearing this interview.
Before you click into the podcast here is Mandis Bio
My name is Amanda Wiggins. Eleven years ago, I had a life changing event that caused me to surrender to Jesus. Life before that day was filled with anger, sadness, and torment of all kinds. I walked around just existing, not fully living life. But since that day I have come to know what it means to have life in abundance, to the full, until it overflows (John 3:16). I am now able to love myself and my life because I chose to begin this walk of life with Jesus.
Once I began to experience the freedom of rejection, abandonment, fear, hatred, depression, and other torments I had the deep desire in my heart to share the things that God had taught me that has enabled me to now love myself and my life. I set out on a mission to let others know that they too can learn to love themselves and their lives no matter what the circumstances may be by creating a blog called “the abundant life.” On it I share the practical things that God has taught me, the biblical truths that He gave me understanding on, and the reasons for hope of a better future. I share some of my personal struggles, my embarrassing truths, my flaws, my failures, and the lessons that I have learned so that my readers will know that I am just like them. We are all equal in the eyes of God and He died so that all of us could have the opportunity to have life in abundance.
I write from life experiences only. I may not have a college degree, but I have gone to the school of following the Holy Spirit and have learned so many life lessons that a textbook could never teach me. I live and write by the wisdom and understanding that I have been given from God.
