Are You In A Storm?

Did you know as a believer you are either going in to a storm, going through a storm, or coming out of one? At this time and for a while now I have been in a big storm. I can only tell you as I go through this storm my faith is growing bigger and bigger. I am not enjoying the storm that I am going through however, I do know I cannot wait to see how the lord will bring me out of it. Also, I cannot wait to tell my testimony   on how MY GOD worked IT OUT FOR HIS GLORIY.

Believe me he is in control of it all. he will open and close the doors when he is ready.  No man can open a door that he closed or close a door he opened. Just know when you are in a storm. You need to bring all of it to him. In prayer. He knows what is really going on behind the scenes.  Just know he will not fail you. He wil not leave or for sake you. He will bring you through it better off then you were before. All you need is faith as small as a mustard seed. He will move mountains for his children. Just hold on to his word, for his words do not lie. It does not matter what the world says believe me he has you.  my storm is big but, are god is bigger. Carry your cross and be proud for he is there to fight for you. let him be the glory  in good times and in a storm.

Here is where it is in his word.

Romans 8:28, 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:6-7, Matthew 17:20, Nahum 1: 7, Isaiah 25:4-5, Exodus 15:2

Now, let me tell you a little about my storm.

I moved to Texas 7 years ago.  I have a disability that is getting worse over time. Honestly if I would have known it was going to get worse I would not have come to Texas.  But, God knew. Currently in the last 4 years my vision has turned from low vision to almost totally blind.  I now can not see even 2 feet in front of me.  This has caused me to not be able to go outside as much an go for a walk, run, or even go to the gym. Light hurts my eyes. The brighter it is the harder it is to see. My sight is always changing with the weather. My sight is never the same at any point in time.   I have trouble going to the store and getting the items I need. Always needing help. My work life was getting harder to do because of my sight. It was also a toxic and abusive work place.   I could not take that type of work place anymore so, I did pray for months for god to change it for me. As that did not happen. One morning I prayed OK God, it is getting harder for me. Show me what you want me to do. Knowing I may have to quit. Low and behold, I did that day. He shut the door for that job. My doctors are even questioning because my job gave me such stress. That just maybe my sight loss could have been triggered to go faster. I now may be in a $73,000.00 debt.  I am sure that I may be even suffering with some type of depression.  I tried to get another job so, I would not have been without one. No luck there. Finding work while going blind is a challenge as well. Friends are hard to come by as well. When you cannot see people just do not want to be bothered with you. Because, I do not get out much anymore. I am gaining weight. It is hard to be going through this storm. However, god has a plan for why and he will make it right.

Now, as the last 2 weeks blog showed. We are a child of the most high god and standing in the palm of his hand.

Yes!  And because of those two truths. My GOD HAS THIS STORM!!!!

So, let’s take this to the lord and watch him work!

DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,

Thank you for letting me neil down by your feet.  With my readers I come boldly to you knowing. This storm is a big one but you are BIGGER then all.  Please help all of us that are going through a storm. We know we are your children and are standing in your palm. Therefore protect us while you work it out for your glory to show in us.  As you know your word has power and is what is truthful so as a result of the power in your words. I say back to you Romans 8:28, and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.1 Peter 5:7, Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Philippians 4:6-7, do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Matthew 17:20, He 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. Nahum 1:7, The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him Exodus 15:2, “The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. Isaiah 25:4-5, For You have been a strong-place for those who could not help themselves and for those in need because of much trouble. You have been a safe place from the storm and a shadow from the heat. For the breath of the one who shows no pity is like a storm against a wall. Like heat in a dry place, you quiet the noise of the strangers. Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the one who shows no pity is made quiet. YES father with all of that Please let the Heavens rain down your words in my storm of life.  Let me be alight for you to shine in no matter what the world may bring our way. YOU GOT THIS!

I love you and        thank you!

Now, in Jesus name we pray AMEN!

Feel free to comment and if you want me to pray for something you are going through. Please, let me know and I will bring it to him.

Have a blessed week! Until my next blog. Stay strong in the lord. HE HAS IT!

Love  Teresa

 

 

 

 

Do You Know Where You Are Standing?

Today you may say. Yes! Of course, I am standing (insert place).  Yes, you may be at home, work, in your living room, outside, or even the bathroom reading this blog.  That is where you are at this time.  Now, you may not like where you are standing at this point in time.

So, my next question is where do you want to be standing (insert place)?  Ok now you may say Hmmm!  I want to be at the beach, your favorite vacation spot, in your bed (laying down),   on line at a local store getting the winning lotto ticket or anywhere but where you are now.

Well I got the best news for you even though you are standing at (insert place).   Or even if you want to be dreaming and want to be standing at (insert place). If you are a believer no matter where you are standing at this moment in time you should know this fact. Once you asked Jesus Christ in to your heart.  God placed you in the palm of his hand. Now, that is the best place to be while you are on earth. I do not even think that one could day dream of a better place to be.

So, as a believer. You now should know you are a child of the most high god standing in the palm of his hand. These are two promises that you are given by god, that I feel are better than any worldly title or place to be. For at some point, if it has not already happened. This world will let you down.  However god in his word promises he will not leave or forsake you.

Here is where these promises are;

John 3:16-17, John 10:27-30, Deuteronomy 31:6, Isaiah 41:10

Let’s just start with these 2 facts (promise) and within the weeks to come. I will expand on his truths and promises to his children.

Now here is my prayer to all.

Dear heavenly Father,

Today, I do come boldly to your throne to say THANK YOU! I am so proud to know that because I do believe in your son. That I am a child   of yours and that you have me in the palm of your hand. I pray that my readers do know this too. For if they do not know   this please use me as a vessel to have your word shine with in my blog / story to show your truths and promises.  Which are:

John 3:16-17“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him John 10:27-30 “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”   Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Again THANK YOU!!!!  For if anyone of my readers are hurting because of life circumstances I ask you now to bless them through their storms of life. Protect them and give them the strength to go on knowing this is just a storm and you will provide, protect and comfort them through it all.

I Love you!  And I ask all of this,  In Jesus name AMEN!

The next post-blog I will be letting you in to my world (life).  To share with you why I am writing these    posts-blogs. As a result, PLEASE stay on this journey with me. I do think it will bless you. My messy life may just let you know.  No matter what is going on IN YOUR LIFE. “YOU GOT THIS WITH GOD” I promise all you need is a mustard seed of faith to keep on going on in this crazy world we call life on earth. (This is the only promise I will make to you)

Thank you, and please let’s stay on this journey together to see the power of the lord work.

Do You Need Prayer?

Today, as I start my Blog. The first thing that I would like to do for all of my readers is pray over all of you. I stumbled over a great prayer that Paul prayed over the Ephesians. I found it to be very fulfilling it is one of the most beautiful descriptions of the fullness of God.

So, here is my prayer for all of you and of course myself with this journey that we will go on together

Dear heavenly Father,

Today, I come boldly to the throne. To pray Ephesians3:14-21 over all that is reading this. As paul did for the Ephesians. I pray that my words back to you, are used to show how much YOU Not me, are real and true I pray as we go on this journey together you use me as a vessel to show them how a mustard seed of faith goes along way. That all things will workout together  for your Glory and that you are really in control of it all.

SO here it is:

14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen

Now and forever in Jesus name AMEN
