Isolation Social Distancing And Physical Distancing In a world Crisis!

Does this get you out of your box to find different ways to be a blessing to others? Ok! we are told to be 6ft away from each other. They are calling it social distancing; some are even changing it to physical distancing. Well today I want to talk to you about being isolated from each other. Before I do this, I want to share who I am and why this message is put on my heart today.

My name is Teresa I will start out and let you know I am a child of the most high God (Jesus Christ). That does not make me better then anyone else. It just tells you where I find my identity it is in Christ; I am a person just like you. I am not a perfect person. I am just like you however, if you do not know Jesus Christ or do not follow his word then that is the only different thing from me too you. we all cut and bleed the same red blood. Yes! our color may be different, we come from different families, we even may be of a different culture or may have a disability. Nevertheless, we again cut the same way, we may have the same feeling- thoughts at some time. We need to be here for one another (not only today while we are going through this world crisis). We need to start today if we have not been there for anyone else. no one should ever be alone. As I say this about being alone, I must be real and honest with you. for I will be transparent with you. I cannot say I am a person that hides anything from anyone. As I tell you I will be again, transparent with you. Anyone that knows me at all Knows this is how I am. That is the only way that I am. I do want the best for all. As you read my blog or know me. these are not just words on a page. I am real with anyone. I say all that I say in LOVE. Now to go back to what is going on right now as I am writing this. Tears are falling from my face. I am or have been alone for a while now. I have been having a lot of life issues (trials). That has put me in my home for a lot longer then I want to be and it may last longer. For now we are in a world crisis.

I have been disabled (visually impaired) most of my life however, I am now almost totally blind. So, as I am a strong person. This is the hardest battle that I have ever had to indoor. I do not really know how to be a blind person. I just like you. know what it is like to see the flowers, go for a run, shop for items all by myself but, now that has stopped for, I am now blind and not able to have the beauty of it. It was hard for me before this world crisis  hence now it has intensified. I have great faith in the Lord but, I long for someone to help me through it. I also want to help someone else that is going through it as well.

. I do not wish any disability on anyone. I am writing this today for I want you to think outside of your box and call someone who is less fortunate, then you. to really help them if they need help. Being in the dark is the hardest thing I think I will ever go through. No, I must retracked that statement and say. The hardest thing is being alone, being isolated from the world now is so hard for me. again, I know I am a strong person nevertheless, everyone needs someone. Please I do not need you to feel bad for me or sorry for me. I am very smart. I can do anything I sett my mind to do. however, being alone and blind is not something anyone should battle alone. Everyone needs someone. I know a lot of you as you are reading this may be saying “you are so blessed to be alone “I have (insert here). My kids, my work, my parents husband driving me crazy. Yes! Do know what it is like to want to be alone at times again, that is not the same as being alone with no one to help you, listen to you. I wish I had someone to just be hear at times. Thank God! if you do have all those distractions. When you have had enough, you can get in your car and go somewhere. not needing any help from anyone. Go for a run or walk, a cup of coffee, or just go for a drive and look around at all the different beauties of the world. You may even run in to someone that will talk to you for a minute. For when you are blind at least for me and what I am finding. No one stops me to just talk anymore. The above list of items that you can do are so much harder for me (or anyone that is blind).I cannot speak for all blind people; however, I am finding out that what I am going through they do as well. The isolation is the hardest part of it all. Some of you that know me may say “you are just a person that has to talk to everyone” no that is not true I wish for a month the world could go through what I am going through or what any disabled person goes through. I do not like to tell everyone all my life issues. but as I find myself now being in the dark. I just need help and need to share. Believe me I like my privacy as well. With all that is going on believe me I have reached out to different people and churches asking if I could help. However, the answer that I have gotten is more like. No, you are good! I (who ever that person is ) that I am talking to says “ that they need to reach out to others” So I laugh and think what about me! then I tell myself ok Teresa ! there is someone else that needs help more then you. but the tears still run down my face. For I do not want to be alone however, I do sit here alone. Praying to God asking him how I can make a difference in the world. So today I hope to make a difference in the world by telling my story to anyone that will read this. Please find someone less fortunate then you. Please just listen and really listen to what they need. Doing within reason what they may need. What I mean by that is. If they say they can you read or text this to me. do what they say the way they say it. For example. If they say can you text me a number by itself do just that. Do not tell them that you will take a picture of it for them and then they can in large it. For that is not the need. I am sure if they could take a picture of it, they would have. And then enlarge it for them self. just really listen to them and help them. I promise you it only takes a minute more. If you cannot do the thing, they need then be honest and tell them as well.

Today as I write all of this, I know all our lives have changed but, today just know there is someone hurting so much more and is alone. Please help someone today outside of your box. Try to be a blessing to someone else

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please help anyone that is sitting where I am today. I know no matter what is going on in this world. you will always come through for your people. I do feel as I have opened my life to the world to read it you will bring the right people in to help anyone hurting just like me. I know the only way I stay strong in times like this is because your word says I can do all things with you Proverbs 3:14. That all things work together to them who love you and are called for your glory Romans 8:28 I also know as it says in Mathew 6:25-31 that we are not to worry for anything that you will supply all of our needs if you do for the birds and flowers what more will you do for your children. That we also do not have to worry about tomorrow for it has its own worries. there are so many promises that you give to me each day that I am so grateful for it all. However, I do know the world needs to hear what others are going through because if we do not hear someone story how do we help each other out.I just ask for a hedge of protection since I have been so real on the world wide web. Thank you for being such a loving Father no matter what this world brings our way. I know you know what is going on and you will get us all through it. In your timing which will come right on time.

I pray this in your son’s name Jesus Christ amen!

 

A Prayer of Double Blessing Over All

Today I want to pray a double Blessing over you and your family. I pray this blesses you as much as you need it too. Giving all the Glory to the lord up above for what the blessing does for you. This blessing comes straight from the bible.

Dear heavenly father,

I ask that your words in the bible bless all my readers today. I know we do not know what we need sometimes.  Or sometimes we think we know what we need however, you always know what we need and when we need it. therefore, as you bless us. Please, feel free to bless us the way you feel fit too. for your ways are always better then our ways. as we want the way that is right for our life.  therefore, I quiet  my thoughts and ask you to make my world right again the way you see fit too. Letting my trials just be a bump in the road for your glory to show up for others to learn from and know you will always have our back.

Now, I come to you with this prayer. Thanking you that you put it in the bible for us to read. That this blessing is there for the taking. So please as we read this blessing that you give in your words.  Give a double blessing to anyone who reads it today. As we read it up and back to you. Please, bless all that are around us as well let them catch this blessing as well. No matter who they are.

As it says in, Deuteronomy 28:3-13 English Standard Version (ESV)Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Blessed shall you be when you come in,and blessed shall you be when you go out. “The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. The Lord will command the blessing on you in your barns and in all that you undertake. And he will bless you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. The Lord will establish you as a people holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways. 10 And all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your livestock and in the fruit of your ground, within the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, being careful to do them,

I pray these words over all today In Jesus Name AMEN!

Let god be the Glory for all you do. You will not go wrong for that. Love and blessings to all

Help With Your Life Issues

Where do you go to find out how to handle the issues of your life? Do you follow a social media Page? Making sure you get the likes you think you need? Do you call a dear friend? do you look to your favorite Talk show host? Do you call a family member? Do you go to your job seeking out what they are saying?  What If I gave you one place to go for all of life issues? No matter how big or small. I have the million-dollar answer for you. Yes, when I say one place for everything  let me open that up for you life issues , Broken dreams, heartaches,, trust issues, financial  issues , career issues  , love issues, relationship issues , parenting issues friend issues, school issues, health issues, bullying issues, you name the issue (insert issue here). I can promise you I know the place to go for any issue you have with anything concerning you and your life.

Well the first place I want you to go is right where you are. Yes, stay right there. It is what I want you to do first while you are standing or sitting in that location.   First, I would like you to open your heart and have a conversation with the man upstairs (GOD).  Whether you believe in him or not. If you are questioning me that is ok.  I just have a simple question to ask you. Be honest! I cannot hear you so, you are really being honest with yourself.  Is what you have been doing working? Seeking out all the other places that I spoke about at the beginning of this blog. No one is going to know anything. This is between you and him (God).  I can promise you he (God) is listening, there is no busy signal on the line, no judgement, no one saying come back later, it is an open door. just start talking. I even want you to know even if you have talked to him (God) before and he did not do what you wanted, or you are mad at him for taking someone or something away from you. Just know he did not do whatever you think he did to hurt you. He only wants what is best for you. You may have a plan in mind for your life but, if you only knew the plans. He (God) has for you. They out way what ever you think it is for you. I can back all of this up for you. But before we go there. Please take a minute and talk with him. What do you have to lose? Nothing else has worked Right!  I also want you to know. He already knows what you want to say or why you do not want to speak to him (God). Again, just know he is weighting for you to open your heart and talk to him (God).  The one good thing about talking to him. Not only is there No judgement, you can talk to him all day long at anytime and anywhere. It even will not cost you a dime. He will find time for you before you find time for him (God). Did you know he does not sleep so you have a 24hour 7day a week open door to him? He is never too busy for you.  I also want you to know No problem is too small or too big for him. Don’t think he also needs to help others so, why bother him (God) with what is going on with you. You are just as important as anyone else.  He (God) is a great multitasker. He can listen to you and me at the same time and still not skip a beat in your conversation or mine.  I even will be bold for him. Ask him (God) to reveal himself to you.  I can bet you; he (God) will show up for you. I can not tell you how or where but, I have seen him (God) do this time and time again.

Just start a conversation asking him (God) to help you with what ever the issues of life are. Asking him (God) for guidance. he will show up. He (God) will take you through the steps you will need to get what you need. I can even bet my last dollar if you do this one step, he will be so bold and show you how to follow him (God) more. As you grow in your talks with him (God). I would just ask that you start there. Letting him (God) into your world and heart to help you with your issues. Everything else will fall in place. If you just start, there. Again, you tried all this other stuff. Let me ask you, how is that working?

If you are saying it is not! Then just try this. What do you have to lose?  Absolutely nothing!  You have nothing to lose. Maybe just some time.  however, I know he will show up for you! this will not fall on deaf ears.

If you want to know more about God and his son, then find a local bible-based church.  Where you can be taught the word of God.  When you talk to him (God). Ask him to help you with this as well. Believe be he will come through with this as well.

Here are some Bible verses that show you what he says about doing just this.

Jeremiah 29:13, Deuteronomy 4:29, Jeremiah 29:11,

Dear heavenly father,

Today I come boldly to you with my readers asking you. To help people that do not know you that well to get to know you better. Help them in learning to go to you. as I have written today. Telling all of them that if they would just open their hearts to you. I know that you will help them in every area they are seeking help in. I know your word promises us. There is nothing that you will not do for us. That if we seek you out you. will come for us to help us wherever we are at this time. I know if they do not know you and ask for you to help them as well. You will show up for them so they can know just who you are. Today I ask you to help anyone that is hurting with any issues. Where they think they will have no answers. I honestly know seeking out you over all the other places that I wrote about today. You will show up better than any one of those places.  I can say this with a clear mind that you will do this for them because in your word you say and cannot lie within your word.

Jeremiah 29:13 (ISV), 13 You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart.

Deuteronomy 4:29 (ISV), 29 If from there you will seek the Lord your God, then you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and soul.

Jeremiah 29:11 (ISV), 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for well-being, and not for calamity, in order to give you a future and a hope.

Thank you for all that you do for me and my readers. Even if they do not think this is true. I pray today that this message just sticks within their mind to give it a try. For I do know your word is real and true. So, thank you for that.

 In Jesus Name I Pray AMEN!

 

 

 

Happy 2020! Faith -blessing s

If you are reading my Blog for the first time and you are doing so by my FB page. (this should be up on or no later then FB by 1/6/20)

Welcome and please feel free to go back and see what I wrote in 2019. I am sure you will be blessed by them. If you have been a reader from the start then THANK YOU! For following me on WP hope this next year will bless you even more then the last. Enjoy each one and feel free, to hit the like button, on the ones you do LIKE-enjoy!

Now here is the first blog for the year 2020!

New Year! New day! (Bring it on 2020!)

Well, this is the last week of 2019. In the next few days we will be in the year2020. This year I want you to make some life changes not because it is a New Year. We all try to make New Year Resolutions but, because we have so much to be thankful for. No matter what is going on in your life. Believe me my life is turned upside down right now. However I am going to turn it right side up. For god is my source for ALL in my life.

So, this is how I am going to start each day in 2020.  Please! join me!

  • Each day I am going to wake up making sure that I first count it ALL JOY FOR this is the day the Lord has made.
  • I will give him Thanks for ALL in my life. Counting ALL of my blessings (good and bad). for a blessing that you did not get may just be a blessing
  • Making sure I put on the Full Armor of God before leaving my home each day.
  • Spending time with him (GOD) in prayer by reading my bible and having devotional time.
  • Trying to keep a smile on my face even when it is hard. (For his will, will be done) and there is no need to worry for he says he will take care of all of our worries. So smile and have a joyful attitude.
  • I will just be me sharing – trusting about how he is good to me NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY LIFE.

 

As I already do some of these items. This New Year I am going to make it my business to wake up start the day and go through out the day with a cheerful heart for the Lord. For he loves us so very much and God wants us to have all that he has for us. So why not try your hardest to be obedient to the only one in this Whole World That Really Cares for you and wants to give you the best LIFE EVER!

There is no one in your life that will do this for you.  Trust in a person and see what you get. (Sadness) at some Point. Trust in The Lord and see the Blessings that will over Flow. He will never leave or for sake you. Put him to the test.  I can promise you. That he will never hurt you. It is the only promise that I can make to you. 

Here is where you can find some of these promises.

Matthew 17:20, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, 2 Corinthians 9:6-9, James 1:17, Proverbs 15:13, John 16:33, Proverbs 17:22, Luke 6:38, Romans 12:2, John 14:6 

Now let’s go to prayer.

Dear heavenly Father,

Today I come boldly to your throne with my readers. To tell you.

Thank you for another year. Thank you for all that you have done in the past. I know all that you are doing in my life is for good. Even if I do not see it today. I have faith in you that I may not understand it all but, at some time you will show up with the answer to my mess. I come today with my readers asking that you show up as you all ways do. In your timing which is right on time. That you show them. If they do not believe in you the way you say that you will. Show them that you are true to your word. I pray that this year we can serve you more, give you more and be obedient to your word. So that when we get to heaven you can say “good Job my loyal and faithful servant. If anyone is hurting at this time. I ask you that you give them the peace that only you can give to us during the times of hurt the peace that surpasses all peace. Now lord I give you back to you your words showing how you do say how good you will be to us. For your word will not lie. Thank you for this. As your word says in. Matthew 17:20He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. James 1:17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 2 Corinthians 9:6-9The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, “He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. “Proverbs 15:13 A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed. John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Proverbs 17:22A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Luke 6:38Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Romans 12:2 do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what the will of God is, what is good and acceptable and perfect. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Thank you Father for I know your words are real and true so, I pray this in your son’s name.

In Jesus name Amen.

Just a note to all of my new readers. Remember I am not perfect. There will be grammar and spelling errors. So be kind. I am trying to do my best with such little sight. (Vision) if you do not know I am losing my vision (going blind). Thank you! Remember no matter what you read on the internet. There is a person behind the screen so, be kind. Feelings do matter!

Happy New Year 2020! Love and blessings Teresa

See you in my next blog -post

Do You Have The Gift Of Grace?

Well, first you may need to know what the word Grace means . So, here is the definition of Grace –

Grace is ALL that God is free to do for YOU based on the work of Jesus Christ on your behalf. It is the inexhaustible supply of Gods goodness whereby. He does for you what you could never do for yourself

Did you know that you were dead (spiritually) before you had Grace by Jesus Christ?  We are sinners and we only have Grace because God gave it to us once we became believers in his son. There is nothing you can do to get Grace. It is a Gift from God. Thank God for that!!

In the Old Testament They could not get it correct by following the law so, as you may know God had to send his SON to save us. I know there are many great biblical people that loved the lord. They were faithful to God. However, god needed to send his Son so we could be forgiven. Are sins were too large. We were just not making it with the law. So as you know, God picked Mary to bare a Son to live a perfect life. To show the world how it is done. God and Jesus are not mad at us at all for not following the law. In fact, God loves you and me so much he did not want us to miss out on what he has for us. Therefore, He gave up his only SON (Jesus Christ) for us. He wants us to live forever with him in his kingdom. There is not one sin that is not forgiven by him. There is not one tear you can shed that he does not care about. He hurts with you. He wants the very best for his children. There is only one thing that you have to do for him but he really did it for us. Is believe that his son died on the cross for you.   Then if you do or have done this.

You get the GIFT OF GRACE and ETERNAL life with him

So what does that take for you to do? TRUST, BELIEVE, HAVE FAITH, Joy IN HIM, SEAK HIM,

If you just get to know him you will not go wrong. He will change your life for sure.  You will have the best life ever.

Now you may say but Teresa! I know you do believe this in every way. However why are you going through so much right now?

Well! I do believe this with all of my heart however, let me tell you what he says via his words…

James 1:2-27 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. …

1 Peter 1:7 So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:28 and we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Romans 10:17 so faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Romans 8:1-39 there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. …

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

1 John 5:4 for everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

1 Peter 5:7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

1 Peter 2:1-25 so put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. …

Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfected of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Philippians 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

1 John 4:4 little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

1 Peter 5:6-7 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.

1 Peter 1:6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials

And now the one that I live by more than anyone

Corinthians 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.

Today my prayer to my heavenly Father is. That all my readers have been blessed with this gift of grace. HAPPY NBIRTHDAY JESUS! Love to you all! Thank you for this gift on your birthday AMEN!      HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!

 

 

Do You Have Forgiveness And Trust In Your Heart?

In today’s world people are so quick to not trust each other or forgive each other.  We as believers have to forgive each other like god forgives us.  Every day I try to be more like Jesus. This is a hard task to do but I work hard to do it.  What does God say about trust and forgiveness? That is what makes it a little easier to do. As I have been a believer all of my life following god is something I have to grow in to daily. I have to die to self each day.

I do not want passed hurts and failures to block what God has for me. We have to learn we are all human and we die to self each day. As god knows what is best for his children that is where trust really comes in to the picture. As I have said in the past blogs God will never leave us or forsake us. And he wants the best for his children we just have to do our best to have forgiven and trust in our heart and faith that it is going to work out no matter what it looks like. His timing is the best because he is right on time.  That as he wants the best for his children and he will make a way no matter what.

So as he will always forgive us. We need to have forgiveness for others as well.  you do not have to forget what they have done . You do not even have to let them back in to your life if they have hurt you. However, you do need to forgive them for what has happened with them. Let God be the one to take care of what went wrong with the action that forgiveness had to take place. For let him be the judge.

Here are bible verses that we can stand on to help us do the very thing god does for us. He forgives us and trusts that we are being the best we can to show non-believers how god truly loves us.

Dear Heavenly Father,

As I come to you every day hoping my heart speaks louder than my flesh .I pray to be more like your son. I know I have to die to self every day. And I thank you that I do have the love and forgiveness that you bring to all of your children. Please help me and all of my readers come to understand how we do live in this world but we are not a part of this world. That no matter what comes against us we need to have trust and forgiveness for everyone in our lives. No matter what they have done to us.  I pray that as believers you soften our hearts to any hurts and unforgiveness.  To be the better person and have your light shine through us. For the glory of your kingdom. I thank you for putting your son on the cross to take away our sins and for – forgiving us for all that we have done wrong.  For as long as we come to you for confession of our sins and asking you for forgiveness. I pray each day I can be more like your son Jesus. Here is what you say to us for trust in you and for forgiveness. Proverbs 3:5 – Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Psalms 56:3-4 – What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

Are You Having Trouble Waiting On The Lord?

Yes! For me it is so hard to just wait on the lord however, it is one of the best things to do. I know we want to have things done at our time but, he will. Work it out better then you or I could have ever done. I have been going through something very hard for a while now. However, I really do believe that God is going to work it out. I do believe that I have to lean on him. I have to wait on him.

You may be asking so what are you doing while you are waiting on him. I do pray, try to read my bible as best as I can. I talk to him even if it is crying out to him to have it all stop. Giving him the glory in the thick of it all.   Telling him is the best thing I think anyone can do. I am even praising   him while it is going on. Letting the devil know that he has no place in my life. This storm is hard but, my god is going to work it out for his glory. I cannot tell anyone how or when this storm will end or when there storm will end. BUT I can give words of how my Lord is going to work it out.  What I do know that this storm will end and Jesus will be the one that I give the glory too. I feel each week when I write this blog no matter how many people read it. I do know even if only one reads it and gets something out of it than it is what needed to be done. Somedays I think I am also just writing it for me. I cannot tell a lie. I do feel that as I do write this blog. It is not perfectly written each week but. It helps me as well.  I have to read my own words back to myself not because I do not believe what I am saying but because I need to hear it again. I pray each week as I put words down on the computer screen   that God is working through me for myself and anyone that reads it. If you are having a hard time with anything in your life right now. Please! Know that God is real and he hears you. Not because I say so but because it is proven in his words.  Let’s pray his words back to him.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today as I do so each day I want to thank you for everyday no matter what I am facing. I know it is all going to work out for your glory. I want my readers to know that you are real and true. That you know why each one of us are challenged with a storm at some point of our life. I do believe it is to bring your children closer to you as we grow. We need to see that you will always work it out for your glory. That the Devil has no place in our lives.  Also so our testimony to others of what you have done for us. You will do for them. That if they do not believe that all they need to do is see you in us. And, want that for themselves.  As we pray today I want to give you back your words about timing and waiting on you to work it out for your glory.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. Hebrews 6:12, So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. 2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Psalm 23:1-6 ESV A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. …

Yes father as my cup over flows. I will gladly wait on your hands to work in my storm. I know that I will give you all the glory for it all. I thank you that we can see it in your words what you will do for us as believers (your children) as we wait on you to get us through this storm. We love you and thank you for all. We know we are sinners and are thankful that your son died for us. To show us grace. For what we could not do for you.

In Jesus Name Amen!

Did You Really Stop To Think About This Verse And Your life?

Mathew 6; 25-26 says “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

 Today let’s really think about this verse. First of all, we take for granted alot. Some may even count out the words in the bible but I want you to have some food for thought. I will do so in just this bible verse.

Let’s say for a minute that the bible is only a book that was written thousands of years ago and it is just words on a page.  Now I will only think or let you have a minute of your time on that false statement. One minute because I do know that the promises of the bible are true. I will not let the devil in and so, let’s go on my thoughts on why you need to believe in the bible and Jesus being your lord and savior. Imagine this. This will not be to complex so, do not worry.

Imagine a tree outside maybe a giant oak tree in full fall bloom.  The wind is blowing so ever lightly. Now up in that tree you find a nest with say maybe 2 birds. A mother bird and a baby bird.  The mother bird is just going about her business gathering up stuff for her baby bird.  She does not tell her baby bird ok now I am going to go to the store and find food for us. She does not say how I need to find a job to take care of all of our needs.  The mother bird is not telling her baby bird well this world is filled with good and evil.  They are just a part of nature. Do not think of this image as a cartoon that Disney made. Just look outside and see what nature is bringing to the forefront.   they have no bird cell phone to gossip on, no credit cards or liquid cash, grocery stores, no bird corporate jobs to go to. They cannot even speak to a human to say hey I am homeless me and my baby bird are going to go hungry can you give us a job, money, shelter   food, or can I use your phone to call a friend so we do not die or lose everything we have.  Now let say it even gets worse for the 2 birds that are in the tree that we have imagined. The wind kicks up and the clouds in the sky have gotten dark. Let’s even throw in some great thunder and lightning.  Ok we get to go inside our homes or maybe in this image we knew the weather was going to get bad so we had an umbrella. We even saw the morning news that told us there was a 65% of really bad thunder storms. Birds do not get the local TV. Wait they can’t even go to there local store and buy a 60 inch TV.  Maybe, you are getting my point. But let’s keep on this track.  Now, the birds feel the weather change and the mother bird does not say ok baby bird now start packing all of our stuff.  Need to worry they just fly off in to another location.  In this storm in that tree their home is destroyed and all of the matter that was collected is rained on, there is No bird cell phones to call daddy bird at work. They just keep on moving and GOD our heavenly father that created all (even the birds in the air) just keeps them moving with nature. WOW!  Now they did not skip a beat the birds just moved on and all was, and is still right in their world.

 Here is another kicker about these birds. NO one shares how good the Lord is to them. That Jesus is even there for them. However, He says in this verse He takes care of them. Therefore, again I say

WOW!!  Trust in his word.

So, why can we not learn from them and trust the word of God? It is funny all we have to do is look outside and see that the word of God. Is true and faithful but, for some reason we want to make it more complexed.

So again look at that bible verse. With a different set of eyes.

Mathew 6; 25-26, look at the top of this page to see it again.

He has you . No worries. Trust in his words. That old book written thousands of years ago still stands TODAY.

 

So, all I ask of you is today.  Just find the bible in your home. I am sure you may have one. Maybe it is on that nice book shelf that you bought years ago. To put all of your books, collectables on, or now just a place where all of your unused items go. So, I ask you to find it dust it off and crack it open.  Start reading it.  Or if you do not have a bible. You can even take your fancy overpriced cell phone and find a great Bible app. Pick a time each day. Spend time in the Word of god.  I promise you whatever you are going through there is a story for you to fall on. If you have never even opened this book. Do not know where to go to. I will pray with you at that minute to ask god to help you find the right promises and words to read. To watch you grow in your faith. Do not question just read and keep on reading. Yes, this book will fully fill your life. I also promise, no one can ever do this like the word of god. I can promise you that. It is the only promise that I can make to you. GOD IS REAL AND TRUE. He promises that to you.  That will start a great journey for a better life an eternal one with the lord. You cannot get one better than that. I also ask you if you do not have a good bible based church that you find one to help you spiritually grow in the lord.  Now, I also have to let you know the promises of god are all yours but, there is only one condition. This condition is not one that is hard or that I have made up. It is in the bible as well. If you are not a believer of Jesus Christ.   The promises are there for you but, you will not be able to reach them

PLEASE!!!! Do not let that stop you from reading his word for I tell you the truth. As you diligently read a little each day and ask God to help you know him. All types of doors will fly open for you. He will help you get to know his  word and his Son.   I am sure buy the time you have spent some time with him. You will want to be a believer in Jesus Christ. If you are not sure how to do this. I will help you in doing so as well. 

Ok here is how to become a follower of Jesus Christ. Let’s pray.

Read this aloud.

Dear heavenly father,

I do believe that your son Jesus Christ has died on the cross for me. He did so to take away my sins. I ask you today to bring him in to my heart and make him my lord and savior.  Thank you for putting him on the cross to take away my sins and give me grace each day through him.

In Jesus Name I pray Amen!

WELCOME!!!!! To the Family, You are now a new person in Christ.

You may ask again, what do I now do. Well, find a good local church, a bible based one. Take a few mins each day and grow with Jesus by praying to him and asking him to help you grow in him with in his word. This is one thing you will never regret doing.  You can start with in your bible reading chapters 1 and 2 of Ephesians. Read this book in the New Testament. Look as you read who you are in him, as a child of god.   As a new creation in Christ. Now, that yu are saved. The only other thing that I can share with you to do is get the book by Dr. Tony Evans. It is called Life Essentials. This book is a good one it will help you grow in your walk with the lord.  He shows you, Dr. Evans the truths of being a child of god.  He shows you how spiritual growth works. I can promise reading, studying the bible, praying to him each day, and finding a local church will help you in your walk with Jesus Christ.

Dear heavenly Father,

Thank you! For your words to us via the bible. Giving us, easy inside to how you care for us. Showing us how we can trust you and not worry about what is going on with us. By seeking you in your words. I thank you also for anyone that just prayed the prayer to believe in you. I know you will show them the way.  Thank you, for letting us have grace by your son.  Today, I pray that all that have read this blog. Your words not mine show them the way to you and the truth you have for them. How just Mathew 6:25-26 shows how simple your words are about what you will do for us. Thank you for that. Also thank you for John3:16 that tells us what salvation is. That we will have everlasting life with believing in your son.  

So, with all of this.  I give Jesus Christ all the praise and glory  for what you have done for us.

In Jesus name AMEN!
