A Forever Friend! Do You Know Who That is!

Friends having Coffee and enjoyingeach other Photo by Julia Larson on Pexels.com

Well as I think about my life and all the types of friends I do have. You can check these types of friends off your list as well. Maybe I even share a friend or two that you did not consider as a friend. You may even read this blog post and say, “WOW! I did not think that person was in a group list of friends for me?” Perchance we even have a few of the same friends. I do Know there is one Friend that you should not take for granted. Yes! Before I share that friend with you let’s talk about all the types of friends one may have.

 Childhood friends, Co-Worker friends, Old friends, New friends, Seasonal friends, Boyfriends, Girlfriends, Long distance friends, Close friends, Neighbor friends Book Club friends, Church friends, College friends, Family friends, Animal friends, Social Media friends, Gym friends, Coffee (buddies) friends. Walking friends, Phone friends, at one time we even had a TV show called Friends and most of us tuned in each week to see what they were doing. I know there are so many more types of friends. If I did not hit a category of friends.

That you have Please, (insert it here). Yes, I even know a few friends that I did not put on this list for clean reasons. Lol  

However, I have not started this Blog post to just give you a list of the type of friends you have. I want to share the best friend anyone could ever have. That is your friend in Jesus.

YES, you have a Friend IN JESUS! All of the other types of friends are great. I pray for you all you have at least one in each group. Hence, the friend I pray you know the best is God’s Son Jesus.

DO YOU KNOW JESUS?

He is a true friend through and through. If you do not know that today. Please do not leave this page without knowing who Jesus is. He has so much to offer you. With no judgement at all. Did you know he will never leave you or forsake you? Deuteronomy, (31:8) He will take your call anytime of day. He wants to give you your heart’s desire. Psalms, (37:4) He loves you unconditionally. He is just waiting for you to call on him. He is not mad at you. He wants the best for you. You are never alone with him as your friend. He is truly your source and resource. Philippians, (4:19) he shares with us in Matthew, (6:26) he will take care of all of your needs.

 He hears you when you cry. Actually, if you cry out to God, he cries with you on your behalf. As long as you believe in Jesus you can ask God anything and Jesus will send it up to the father. John (14:13-14) He is really the beginning and the end in your life if you let him be. As your friend he even shares his playbook of life with you (The Bible-his word).  He died on a cross for your sins. He has a gift for you. Which is the gift of Grace and everlasting life. John, (3:16) Know matter what you hear about him he really wants the best for you. He knows when to come and help you out. He will be your right on time friend. He will never give you more then you can handle. Did you know you can even do all things with his strength Philippians, (4:13)? He works all things out for his glory but because you are called for his purpose Romans, (8:28) I hope you can join me in saying HE IS MY FOREVER FRIEND!

If you do not know him today or are on the fence about calling him your friend. I pray today you find a bible, pray out to him, and ask him to help you with your unbelief. I cannot promise you much in life. For if you know me I do not like using that word promise. But today I will come along side of you and share with you that I do promise if you do not know Jesus and want to. He can and will be your forever friend. He cannot lie.  1 Samuel (15:29). God is three parts for sure God the father, Jesus Gods son of Man, and the Holy Spirit. God gave us three parts of himself to show the world that he has overcome the world.

So today please look to him Jesus for all you need NO MATTER what is going on in the storms of life. Before it is too late. For I do believe at this time God is shaking us up with this pandemic.

Well as I do want to pray with you all. I also want to share with you my next Podcast is up. Ready for you to listen. This podcast is called A Friend and Mentor.

She is also a child of Gods. She knows Jesus is her forever friend as well. Please listen to my friend Ann Harrison from Inspirational journeys stories that matter Her interview will inspire. You. Show you a No Excuse ADATUDE. Show you that all things are possible. No struggle or storm of life is too big or small. With God on your side. You may even be surprised.

Now let’s go into prayer.

Dear heavenly Father,

Thank you for all the types of friends we have in life. Hence, thank you for the best friend we could ever have. Which is your son Jesus. Thank you for putting him on the cross for our sins. Giving us the gift of Grace. Today I pray anyone that does not know you. That they do seek you and your son out. That no matter what the world may say. They see that you only have the best for them. That you put your son on the cross because you loved us so much. Thank you for that gift. I pray that all I do for you. I do always show my listeners and readers that I am your daughter in Christ. That I can hide behind your cross to make sure you are heard. I Thank You Lord!  If any one does not know your son, I pray they ask you into their heart and get to know you and your son. That they see you really are all they need.

I pray this in your son’s Name Jesus Christ AMEN!

Some encouraging words from a friend

The Lord is my Shepherd = that’s relationship
I shall not want= that’s provision
He make the me to lie down in green pastures=that’s rest
He leadeth me beside the still waters= that’s refreshment
He restore my soul= that’s healing
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness = that’s guidance
For His namesake = that’s purpose
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death= that’s testing
I will fear no evil= that’s protection
For thou art with me= that’s faithfulness
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me = that’s discipline
Thou prepare the a table before me in the presence of my mine enemies = that’s hope
Thou anointest my head with oil= that’s consecration
My cup runneth over= that’s abundance
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life = that’s blessing
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord= that’s security
Forever =that’s eternity
The 23rd Psalm

Thank you from a dear friend Gail love it love it love it! This is an iPhone post because I just needed to share it right away

On a journey!

Some days I wonder. Where is God taking me. Yes where is he taking me. I know that life has many ups and downs. Do I know which way they are going to go. No, I’m really not sure. The only one who really knows is our creator. One day but not right now it’ll all come unfolded yes! God will take us on many twists and turns. We just have to follow that path have faith and believe. I know I do. Do you?

There are many days that I just feel what are we doing God.? God I know what you’re doing. But I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do. But I will always have faith trust and believe in my father from up above. For I know his ways are not my Waze his thoughts are not my Waze he tells us that in his word. Yes all I need to do is lean on all of his promises.

I hope each time I write. You see what I believe I know. I am just like you. But I am a child of God yes I am a child of God! I really hope you believe that for yourself and find out his ways. What he wants from you what he’s looking for from you. And all that he wants to give you. Please if I ask you one thing or tell you one thing go seek him out he loves you more than anyone. He really does. So today I leave you with some such a simple path of words. And telling youto go see Kim out.

I can tell you and I know this for a fact. You will never go wrong by seeking him out. He will love on you he will hold you he will keep you when times are rough he’s the only one that really cares and wants to hear from you. He has the greatest plans for you Jeremiah 2911. So as we start our weekend off just remember you have a father who loves you more than anything yes a father who loves you more than anything.

Dear heavenly father,

I come boldly to your throne with my readers. To say thank you! I love you so much! I know you only have the best plans for me. I know that life may be hard and my struggles may be real. But you really only want the best for your children. I am so thankful that you keep me and hold me and that you’ll never leave me or for sake me. That you only want the best for your children again all I can say is thank you father thank you! So I ask you today father. Please please please! Hold me keep me safe all the time no matter what I’m going through. I know your Waze or notmy Waze I know your thoughts are not my thoughts. I just want to say thank you and I’m sure my readers do too. So thank you again today for just taking me on this journey.

In your sons glorious name I pray amen

Exciting News And A Thank You!

Hello to All.

Today, I want to share with you all. I am so happy inside my heart for three reasons. One Thank You! All for listening to my first ever podcast and for all the kind.

words. Two I got a sponsor right out of the box. So, please share my Podcast but only if you feel led to do so. I found out from a few friends that have Podcasts and have been doing it for years. They still have no sponsor. SO, it is a good thing to get it right out of the box. Even with all of my mistakes in it. The third thing that I need to share with you all is.  This one is I feel the best one for sure. God has blessed me with a few new friends. Yes! I need to share one of these new friends with you all.

I think you all will love her just as much as I do. Her name is Mandy. I found her before I did my Podcast maybe about 2 days before it all got up and running. I was getting ready for bed. Having a hard night. I was in one of those moods praying to God for help in my sadness. I do this from time to time. But when I am going down my sad hill of life. I just like I shared with you all before. I cry to God to help me through it. I do sit in the boat with Jesus when times like this happen. Well, this night I had my cell phone by my bed. After I spoke with God. My thoughts moved over to let me see what is going on in the WordPress world. Well, low and behold, I found a new person to read and follow. Yes, Mandy from Abundant Life was my Angel from God that night. I only read two of her blog posts. I had no idea what her story was. I read a post about doing things on Purpose.  At this time, I had no idea what she was going through in her life. After I clicked on that post, I wiped my eyes. I read another one. It was good too.  I found myself commenting on her posts. I shared with her words of encouragement as well as telling her she is a blessing to me. I was so excited. I took my cell phone and spoke a message into the comment section.  I did not fix my grammar at all.  I just wanted to get that message to her. I do this from time to time. It is because of my blindness. I just speak the message into my phone. Yes, grammar does matter however, I do not want to lose the first words God gives me at times to share with others. It is so hard not being blind all of my life to fix some items. This is one of them. I am working on hence it is a big work in process. It is a hard one for me. Nevertheless, I just wanted to share my thoughts. I do listen to it to make sure my message makes sense. There is just little punctuation in it. There may be a word here or there misspelled.  If fixed them know I would take too long and say for get it. So, this is just my thing. You will forgive me or not! I am ok with if you do or do not.

Anyways let me now share with you after she read them, we went back and forth in the comments. She told me I could use anything on her page.

God was pressing on my heart to tell her that I wanted her on my podcast. I still did not know her life story. Nevertheless, it was not time to know it. I just knew I was struggling at that time. And she was a blessing and an Angel from God. So, if you go to her page you can see the messages back and forth. However, I would rather you read the positive words of encouragement she has to share.

We have now talked, and she is going to come on my podcast for sure.

I now am going to set up a YouTube Channel in the next few weeks so my readers and listeners can now see me, and my interview will be able to be seen as well. I may not be able to see hence I do know we all like to put a voice to someone’s words and we do like to see people too.  She agreed a YouTube interview would be better.

Even though I am saying God really this is too fast. I have been in prayer about it and God is showing me it has to be done. 😊

So, I ask you two things now please! First stay in prayer with me on this next journey. Two please go check her Mandy out at Abundant Life.

Here is the link to read all that she has to share with the world and giving God the Glory too. I promise (you know I hate saying I promise) but I can for this. You will not be sad after reading her posts. She is a positive person, and her struggle is Large. But she knows her for sure her source and resource.

Here is Mandy’s The Abundant Life blog

Let’s go into Prayer.

Dear heavenly Father,

Thank you! you are the best daddy everyone should want to know better for sure. I come boldly to you today with just a smile in my heart to say thank you Father. Thank you! for all that you do in our lives. I know at times life is hard, but I know you are for me. I know you have the best plans ever. I am just so thankful I can share my life with others to glorify you Lord. I pray you keep me in check every day of my life to honor you Lord. I pray for all that is reading my blog. that they do see you are the beginning and the end. You have all good things for your children. Thank you for my struggles too. For I do believe without them I would not serve you as I do. I know they are hard; however, I know you are walking by my side.

I love and thank you Lord!

In Jesus Name Amen!

My Next Steps In my struggles!

Hello to All,

Hope you all are doing well; I have been struggling with my next blog post to you all. Nevertheless, as I have been in prayer to get my next one up. The one thing I have learned in my short time of blogging. Is that God has to lead me in every step of writing each week. I have been speaking with my Pastor friend Willie on my next topic. We hit on a subject that has been brewing in my heart and mind for a while. Which was doing a podcast-YouTube channel. I have asked you all at one point to pray for me in doing this next step. Thank you if you have added me to your prayers for this or anything. I am always grateful for the prayers. I can share with you all about a week or two ago. I got a text message from Willie’s wife Terri. About how to set up a podcast. She, Terri out of the blue heard a message and sent it my way. I listened to the podcast and then told her. That I did not think I was ready to do this next step. Of course, we text back and forth on my thoughts and hers for me. Terri shared with me that she has heard me speak and thought it would be a great next step. I told Terri that I did not feel ready to do a podcast. Hence, God is amazing. For as I have been struggling with my next blog post. It has given me time to play with the idea of setting one up. God always shows up for you when you say no not yet or never going to happen.

I do have another friend who has helped me work on my blog posts and my writing journey. She has encouraged me for a while to get one up and running., We always shared that I had to stay in prayer about it. Well, tonight I can share with you all. That I have set one up. Now there is not a podcast episode up yet. I have just launched it and put up a trailer that shares what the podcast will be about. Also, that it is coming soon. I am almost sure that I will have my first podcast episode up in the next week or earlier. So, I pray if you are a follower you check it out and maybe enjoy it just as much if not more. And want to subscribe to it. I pray that it shows people that God is not only my source, but he is my resource. That no matter your struggles God will get you through them all. As I know I have been on this journey to start writing my life story. I think that God wants me to get this next plat form going. To show his glory in my life no matter what is going on in my struggles. I know that I may not have shared with you all. that is, that I would love to be a motivational speaker. So maybe this is just Gods plan to get this going for his again glory.  It has been a very ruff few years for me. Even though, I may be sad at times. I always try to put on a smile and pull out a positive from my struggles of life. I do know there is a God who is doing a greater work in and through us all. No matter the struggles of our life.

We all will have hard times and bad days but, if you just keep moving forward God will bring you through it all. In his Glorious timing. He created us in his image and knows all the outcomes of life for us. SO, if I can share one thing and nothing else. Hang in there hang on for we are not promised tomorrow. Hence, anything can change in a blink of an eye and God has the last say. So, if I have learned anything is, he has got it he is in control.  I will let him take the wheel of life and trust in him for all.

Thank you again for reading and following my blog if you are a follower Thank you for that, I pray my words help you as much as they help me too.  That you do see God is my all no matter my struggles and that I am just a real person like you!

So, let me now share the link for you all to go and hear my trailer.  Oh, and now you will be able to put a voice to my words! I pray it is better than you imagined. 😊
