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￼￼￼
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

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.
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
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
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

However, it may even be a blessing that it was not perfect out of the box for my message will help you to understand this learning curve more. I do not want to give a way what my podcast is about! So please feel free to listen and enjoy!
Thank you! All from the bottom of my heart for being a part of my struggling blessed but not alone journey
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. 😊
