Good morning! Today as always is an amazing blessing day. God is always working in the mist of it all. All I can say is my life is hard my struggles are real. But God comes right on time. This song by TobyMac really sets the tone for the life that I have and how I wait on God and he always comes right on time. As I talk listen to my phone today my word press message. All I wanna share is this amazing song because it means so much in my life today. My words may stumble my life may be hard I’m not perfect at all. But I know my God comes right on time. He comes right on time for you to. Do not give up on God because he has not given up on you.
Just know that God is for you and not against you. He does really come right on time. For I do not know what tomorrow will bring. That’s not my concern. As God says in his world do not worry about tomorrow for today has enough trouble of its own. I will hold onto all the verses I can know that my God is real and true. I will share it with the world forever and always. How God works in the mist of it all. How Jesus is right there alongside of us walking crying sharing our hearts and sorrows. God knows what he’s doing he created us. Always remember that. He just knows it and all I can do is share it with the world. No matter what the church is done or people have done. Always remember God is not really the church it’s the people that come together in the sanctuary who are. Let’s work together to be a better church. To bring more souls to Christ.
I will pray for everyone and all. If I am no better than you. God has created all of us. We need to work together. To bring glory for his name and for him. I love my Lord so much. No matter what I go through. He’s always been there. He always comes right on time. I pray you listen to this song. And dance along with me. For God is amazing. As I will not fix this text into my phone for my word press page. I just wanted to share off-the-cuff my thoughts my thank you’s to the Lord. Loving this song completely thank you TobyMac for writing it. I know he’ll never understand what his song is done for me. But God does and I hope you listen to the words and really get it in your spirit. God is coming right on time. Again￼￼￼
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!
If you do not believe in him, please just speak with him, and see how he is really going to help you.

In life I think we think you have The Abundant life if you have the car, family 2.5, the big house, the so-called perfect job (insert here what you think it is). Well, Today I have a podcast up with Ms. Mandie from The Abundant Life.
She really shows us how to have the abundant life. No matter what you face in life is the so called the abundant life filled with gold and glamour. Or is it just living your life to the fullest. With God taking the wheel of your life and storm.
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 pray as you listen to this podcast you really seek out Gods amazing Grace for you and let him guide you in having The Abundant Life. God is really the beginning and the end.
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.
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. The struggle you think may be the hardest for her is Not at All.
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.
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

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.
just in case you have not listened yet or need to share this link with others. My first podcast Gift of Gab Pilot
Thank You ALL from the bottom of my heart may God be the glory Romans, (8:28)
I am hoping to get another Podcast up by this Friday or next week being the latest.
I think I will set them to Fridays for sure! I will keep you posted on that!
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.
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. 😊
