Today’s Ramble However, A Blessed One!

Today, is just a Ramble on blog. I am sure I will have you thinking at the end of today’s post.  Did you ever think what if this or that? Well, I do not do much of the what if game. For me it makes no sense to play that game.  I know that there are cards that I have been dealt. I am always thinking how do I move forward. With the cards I have been given, for my life.

I as a believer in Jesus Christ. I know it says in the Bible I was never promised an easy life.  That every day I must die to self. That I need to be more like Gods son Jesus Christ. I need to decrease so Jesus can increase in my life. John (3:30), Now, because we are here on earth we are faced with a sinful world. I try not to be like the world is. Because, I am taught by Gods word. That I am in the world but not of this world, Romans (12:12). This may all be a cliche to a non-believer however, as you have read: I am a believer in Jesus Christ.

I do believe he came to save you and me from the sins of the world. I pray as you do read my blogs. If you do not have belief in him you, do seek him out. For I really cannot do anything with out him by my side. As you all have read in the past. I do have a big struggle in my life and life is hard for everyone. nevertheless, I know there is a purpose for it all. I may not see why this or that is happening. I do know it will all workout in Gods timing for his glory for those who are called for him and love him. Romans (8:28), tells me this and I do stand on this truth. Now you may be saying “Okay that is good but where is she going with all of this.”

Remember, at the beginning of this blog. I said, “this is a ramble blog.”  Even though I said that I know that I am writing today for my life has meaning and purpose.  And, you may be asking yourself the same, “where did I go wrong and do, I have a purpose for my life.”  You may not see it with all of what the world is going through.  However, I am not sure which way it is going.

Do I think doors are opening? Yes! So here is what I say to myself and God each day. Okay, I start out with. 1. I woke up today so, God has a plan for me. So, let’s go God. 😉 2. Did I sleep in a clean bed and have a roof over my head. Yes! So, lets go God. 😊 3. can I take a shower and do I have clean clothes to wear? Yes! So, let’s go God. 😊 5. Do I have food to eat. Yes! So again, let’s go God. 😊 4. Are all my bills paid for today. Yes! So, let’s go God. 😊 6. Is anyone after me for anything today? Thank God NO! so again, let’s go God. Now, with all, I must be thankful to God. Know that my struggles are still hard and real.  However, God has all my needs taken care of for today, and he tells us in his word we are not promised tomorrow. This is in Mathew (6:34). You may even want this or that as I do too. But he does not promise all your wants will be given to you. Hence, he said he will meet all your needs. He is a loving God. He wants the best for you and me. So, after I have in the morning gone through my list. I give him praises for all. That he has done for me. Also, that he blesses me. He is not only my heavenly Father, that he even through my faults. Loves me unconditionally. That he is the best resource and my source for everything.

That he gives me grace. That is a gift that we cannot earn. Grace is a gift you receive. When and only when you trust in his son. That you believe that God gave his only son for the sins of the world (our sins). Grace is not and never will be something you can buy or work for. It is again, a gift from God. John (3:16). Once you take that gift and know, no matter what life brings your way. You are his child and all the promises of the bible are yours for the taken. However, one must start to learn to change their heart to be more like his (God’s) son (Jesus Christ). All it takes at first is a mustard seed of faith. Just a little prayer to him. Even asking him to help you be able to read his word each day for because, the only way to get to know him, God, and his son Jesus Christ. Is to read his word seeking him out. Just like you have a good friend that you may get coffee with. Start talking to him and reading his word. Like you get coffee with a good friend. You can even go get your coffee by yourself. However, not really being alone take your bible with your morning coffee. Sit with him and talk to him. Let him be your best friend. He will talk to you. The only way he talks to you and me is by reading his word. You must seek him out. He will be your best friend even better than your so-called best friend now. Remember, life will not automatically change where you have a so-called better life. Nevertheless, God and his son will make sure he is with you all the rest of your days. Again, your needs will always be met. Even if you let him go for a while. Just know he does not leave us or for sake us. Then watch. Your life will change for the better. Will you still have troubles, struggles, life issues, will or could you get sick and need care for your sickness. Yes, and this is because we live in a fallen world. However, he will make sure he helps you through it. Know also do not ask for your will to be done. This may puzzle you right now. But let me break this down for you as well. I have learned in time while walking with God and Jesus Christ.  He tells us that his ways are not our ways. His thoughts are not our thoughts. Isaiah, (5:8-9) If you just trust in his word. He promises that he will make a better life for you and me. then we could ever imagine. Yes! The struggles will be hard. As you read his word. Look at all the people that believed in him. They did not have it easy either. He shows you how he worked/blessed for them. So, we are blessed to have a Bible to go to. To see all that he did before us, Hey, did you also know he cannot lie. Numbers (23:19) If he did it for Noah, Jobe, Joseph, Moses, Rahab, Ruth, Ester, Peter, Paul, The Blind Man, the man at the pool of Bethesda, and so many others. Did you even know Jesus had no sins and he was perfect? He had struggles for sure. He is the one that came to save the world. That even blows my mind. I say that because, would you give your child to save the world. I am sure Not! So, if got did it for them and gave his son for all that we did wrong. Why or how could you not think (trust, believe, have faith) he will do for us.

Why would God not do it for us. Moreover, just think about this. This is even better news. We even have a play book (The Bible) to see what he did for them. They did not have that knowledge. Yes! God did speak to some of them during that time. Still we, I feel we have the best play book.

So, at this time, I will stop my ramble. To give you this. Just know as I tell you this, I need these words as well. I will be reading my own words back to me. He is real,true,  and in control of everything. Just give him a try. I can only promise you this because, I do have faith and trust in him. He will take you places you could never imagine. I hope my words give you a little faith to go seek him out. I can only share my struggles with you so, you can see his Glory.  I really have to say I do not like my struggles nevertheless, I would not have it any other way. For I do believe I am being used by him to tell you all. No matter the issues. I see the glory in my life. I am proud to let the world know I Live for his Glory. I pray my testimony shows the work that he has done in for to help others believe in his son (Jesus Christ). Please, take that leap of faith. What do you have to lose by doing so? He will show up not a day late or a dollar shy. Know again it is in his timing.  Which I do know it is the best timing I hope this gave you something to think about today. Moreover, you love to come to love him like I do. 😊 my God be the Glory!

 

Dear heavenly Father,

I come boldly to you today. Asking that as my readers read my rambled-on blog. They see you more then they see me. that your words are real and true. That as this world is falling even more. I pray even before it is too late for them to seek you out. My readers find you. That they come to read your word. And fall in love with Jesus just like I have. That no matter their trials. You as I know you do. You will show up for them. They will read John (3:16) and pray it into their life. I pray they really get it down in their soul. Thank you for all that you are doing in my life. Even when it is hard to see what you are doing. I know you are working behind the scenes. To show your glory in my life. As well, as the readers that do believe in your son Jesus Christ.

I pray all of this in your son’s name.

In Jesus Christ Amen!

UPDATE! GOD IS WORKING!

Today I decided to come and write something on my blog. Maybe, we can call it an update. Yes! an update.

So, as I have told you all a little about myself.  Let’s recap just a little. As you all know I am not defined by this world; I find my identity, in Christ.  I am a child of the highest God. Now, that is my identity. My life issues as you may know are as follows, went from having low vision to just about being totally blind ,lost-quit a job because of bullying , still have a $72, thousand dollar debt , and lastly still trying to recover from a concussion from a car accident. Yes! I am still living alone. Yes! before anyone tells me, as they have,” I am never really alone.” Yes! God will always walk along side of me. nevertheless, I am physically alone.  Well, as that is just a little of the recap.

Now, let me tell you what I am doing during this time. As you all see I have started a blog. Even though it is not perfect. Meaning is just out there on the web. Was hoping to find or get someone to help me make it better.  Mistakes and all. I just told myself. Correct or not, I will just try it. I have been diving into all types of studies like learning braille and learning how to use my computer with blind software. I have been listening to all types of podcasts for any type of help for the blind and just anything to broaden my skill set. I have been trying to eat better and add exercise back into my life. (this one is a little hard because I am under doctor’s care). I have been looking for a job. I also have been working on or really trying to start up a blind and low vision Focus group.  Also, I have shared with you my dad is sick. Well I have also been adding in time for him every day, (a phone call back home).  Because of this COVID issue, I cannot go home and be with my family to help.

He is sick with cancer and the doctors have said his time may be up soon, however, I am glad to report that he is sounding GREAT. Now, he is a believer for sure. He does know where he stands with the Lord. Yes! Thank God he not only taught me about the Lord. He is a follower of Jesus Christ.  For as he is in a lot of pain. he does talk -pray to God up above.  He does know God is not only listening but, he does know, no matter what God is in control of his health (life). He stands on the promises of God’s word (Bible). That no weapon formed against him will prosper.  (Isaiah 54:17) That by the Lords stripes he is healed. (Isaiah 53:7) Now that may not be here on earth but, he knows it will be in heaven.  He is not a perfect Dad at all, for no one is perfect. Except, for Jesus Christ who died for our transgressions (sins). He does know, he is saved by grace. A gift only God can give to all. (John 3:16) so, I am blessing ed to know. I will see him again in heaven.

Now, after my last Blog, you all may have been worried because, I that day was going through a lot. I will never give up. Nevertheless, it was a really hard day.

I am glad to report currently, I am Blessed. Here is just a bit of what God is doing.

As I told you all about that Focus group. It now has a Name: Sharing Insights. It has about 10 members. We are working on a Mission Statement. The Focus Group currently has an email address linked to the name. Which is Sharing_Insights@outlook.com .  Please if you would like to know more about this group, feel free to contact me there.  Just know currently it is still a work in process. Our first focus group meeting will be in August. Thank God, he has brought me 10 amazing people to be in this group. They range from blind to low vision and fully sighted.  All the members are professionals. Most of them have a Bachelor or master’s degree. There skills range from being a braille expert, a radio announcer, an author, that has written an amazing book for any parent to read. If you are a parent with a child that has low vision or blindness, this is a must read. Or, if you just want to read a book with a “CAN DO ATTITUDE.”  The book is called, “Blind for A Purpose” by Blake Lindsey (it is currently at Amazon)

There are a Few in the group that either owned a business or still do.  There are a few in this group that speak 2-3 foreign languages, and one is a computer Technologist. There are a few of them that work in the low vision and blindness field.  A singer and composer, some of them are currently continuing their education.   One or more of them play instruments not only for fun but, at their local church.  Others work or are in leadership at their church or with other Programs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  We have a few bloggers. The talent in these 10 professional working people is amazing. Now the ones that are continuing Their education it is in skills like in braille, computer skills, working with children with disabilities, even one person who is studying to be a Rabbi.  I share this with you all because, I feel this is God working at his best. What a great gamut of people to help me with this focus group.   Right Now, let me share with you where all of this comes from after I planted a seed. God, has me connected to learn all my studies at this time in one place. This is a total blessing to me. it is for you as well. You may be saying why YOU!

My testimony I pray gives you the strength to have faith if you do not. To want to seek after him (Jesus Christ.

God gave me this gift years ago however, as you hear so many times from people.  I do not know who or why this is going on right now. So, again a seed is planted. First with a prayer and even maybe you just are doing something that will prosper later

So here it is there is a school called Hadley School for The Blind. You need to check it out. They have been around for 100 years this year. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THEM.

It was right under my nose all the time. I have been with this school for years. Doing a little here and a little there. This is where I have learned my braille. At least my first three classes. Braille literacy 1,2, finishing up Braille literacy 3. All three classes are uncontracted braille (which means you learn All of the alphabet, numbers, and symbols like the period, question mark) Braille literacy 4 is contracted. (short form). Even though I have a degree from FAU. (comma) I have taken an accounting class. Just to refresh my skills. I have taken an English class. All from the comfort of my home. Now, this school is also the way I learned that I should start up a focus group of my own. I just learned in the last week they teach or have podcasts on how to blog.

For that is going to be great. For me, my blogging may really become something.

It is a credited school, non for profit, been in the learning business for over 100 years this year

All the learning experts are great. they are just an email or a call away. They really care to teach not only the low vision and blind world. I can say they are happy to help all they can. What a great blessing God has sent me.

An all in one place. Remember, as I started this blog, I said I was looking for help in learning how to blog. Well, God not only gave me the place, he gave it to me for free

Oh YEAH! It is totally FREE TO ALL! YES!  You are reading that correctly FREE to all.    I have so much to learn Hadley offers more classes then I could ever share with you. GO Check it out!  There is something for all! You will be impressed and want to share with all you know!

Please go check it out!  www.Hadley.edu

Dear heavenly Father,

I come to you with joy in my heart. I know my trials are real my heart is hurting at times. however as always you show up right on time. For I do not know what tomorrow will bring. all I do need to know is that you are in the midst of it all. Thank you! I hope that people really get to learn how amazing you are. Just by my testimony.  Please, help anyone that is hurting currently to know you are real. And there for them too. I am so glad to wait on you. For I know what you have for me is so much better then what ever I could imagine for my life. I am proud to share what you are doing no matter what it looks like at the time. For I know you will make it all right in your time for your Glory.  And I will always say this is because of you!

In Jesus name I pray Amen!

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!

 

The Answer, Is Not In Do I Need Another Roll Of Toilet Paper!

Sitting here alone in the dark knowing that God is here with me however, feeling like he is so far from me. it is 2 am in the morning and I have been awoken from my sleep with so, many thoughts. Will this world crisis ever end? Will I ever find a job again? Do I really need another roll -pack of toilet paper? How do I keep my children on the right track while they are now at home being home schooled? Will I ever get back to the gym? How do I really connect with others in person? I miss all that my church has to offer me for my soul! Does the government really know how to fix this world sickness? Do they realize that God is shaking us up, to hear from him? How do I help others when I feel so helpless myself? How many more people will die from this? As I write my thoughts on what is going on in my head. I added thoughts you may be having as well.

I am not sure why today God woke me up to write a blog nevertheless, I need to obey and put my thoughts on the computer screen. if not only for me to stay hopeful but, to maybe help someone else out that is feeling the same. Letting you know that you are not alone in having these thoughts. Please know the feelings you are having are real however, at a time like this we need to turn to Gods word to see what he says and how you will get through this. As I write this if you are not a believer of Jesus Christ. I pray this blog does not set you off in the wrong way but, you come to see how what is going on today is really a cry from God for us not to leave him out of our lives. I want you to know that I am not an Author, I am not a Pastor, I am not a large figure in my community. I am just an average US citizen like you. I do have to add that as I am telling you I am a citizen of the US, like you moreover, I am a child of the most high God. So, when I go through my trials of life. I DO BELIEV That I am not ALONE on my journey! No matter how hard they are and YES! They are for a while are harder than you could ever imagine. I was and am going through something even before this world turned upside down with this virus. I have been in my home isolated for many more months than you could even think of. nevertheless, I will save that story for another day. If you have been following my blog, you have read some of my story. But again, I will save that for another time.

You may be saying then how and why do you put your trust in God and his son! Well, as I go through all my life issues. I can tell you He (GOD) has never left me or for sake me. just like his word says. His (Gods) ways are not our ways. his thoughts are not our thoughts. He (God) is not a day late or a dollar shy. One day I hope to let you see all my trials and then seeing what the Lord Christ has done for me. Better than I could have ever imagined, but again that is a story for another day. Let’s stay on the track of what he is saying to you and me today. I do have to say these are what gets me through it all. They -Gods words are not just words he will come through for you and me. Just believe in him and see it for yourself. God never promises an easy life for anyone. Look at what he (God) even did to his own son. Jesus Christ was even put on this earth for you and me. Jesus Christ was perfect. He had no sin. However, God put him through so much for us. So, as I know this might be hard for some people. I have to say No it is not hard for me to have Faith. That he is working on my behalf in all times. Good or bad. All one needs is a mustard seed of faith. I hope you can take that leap of faith. Just a small leap is all it takes. The Bible is a great way to see all that God has done in the past and what he is going to do today. I invite you to get out your Bible if you have one and start reading. you have nothing to lose. For most of us we are stuck in our homes anyways looking for something to do. As we look to the news for updates on how the Government is going to handle this. I ask you to go one more step and look in Gods word for what he is doing right now. I promise you he will give you all that you need. Just crack open your Bible. If you do not have one there are many APPs that will give you his words. You will see no matter what you read. God and His son have always come through for his people. If you do not know where to start just ask him. He will show you as well. I ask you even in these hard times as you are looking for someone to talk to. Reach out and up to him. Do not pick up the phone today or change the TV channel for what the world is saying right now. You have heard them for days. Take a few minutes and read what God is saying. Even if you are saying. No way that book is just a book written years ago. I can promise it has lots of stories of anything you could look for like Drama, romance, thrillers, reality and so much more. If you do not believe at first, you will fall in love with Gods words. If you just try it out. You have nothing but time on your hands so, why not go for it. You, I am sure are looking for answers anyways. So why not look to him too. Since, you probably have not had any good words yet. I do believe if we all gave him a shot. We may (WILL) see this world get back in order. Faster than we are now.

Now I would like to take us to prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today I come boldly to you with all that is going on in this world. As I do know we in this world are not sure on what tomorrow will bring us. However, you are not surprised by anything. For you have created everything. I do believe you are shaking us up because we have put you on the back burner of life. As I am praying to you. I ask you to help all our leaders to come together for your words on what and how to get through this. That they see that we are nothing with out you. during this time, I hope they realize that you need to be put back into the schools, in our government, in our national anthem, anywhere that you have been taken out of. I know as some people do not believe in you. I pray as I have written they do have time on there hands. So, I pray they do find out who you are. what you can offer them as well. I do know these trials are real, but you are the only one that will truly get us back on track. I pray that you go farther with my words that I have said today and put a burden on my readers to really feel the pressure to go seek out your words. I did not give any bible versus out today because I really pray that my readers go to your word the bible. And look at different chapters to see what you have done for years. For all your children. Weather they start in the old testament at the beginning of time or they go to the New testament for what you did to your son for our sins. I ask you to take them to where you see fit. To get them to see no matter where they read you have come through for all. In your timing. That all it takes is a mustard seed of faith. for you to move a mountain in their life. As you move mountains in their life, I also pray they know and see that they need not to worry about anything even a roll of toilet paper. For if they put their trust in you. You will come through for them and the whole world. That you are the beginning and the end. That you always know all that is going to happen. I thank you that I have been saved by your son and that you give me and my readers grace. I also pray that while we are going through this all. You give all of us peace to know you are working behind the scenes to bring us together. that all things work together for them who love the Lord and that are called for your glory. That you will never leave or forsake us. that your ways are not our ways. That your timing is not our timing. That you will come right on time. Just to trust in you. I pray that we really do get this down in our soul. And even after we are back on track that we do not let you fall back out of our lives and in your sight. I also pray that anyone that reads this message that they share it with a friend, neighbor, coworker or any one they feel fit too. For if they do not know how to let someone know about you. I want all of this only for you to get the glory that we so need to give to you. we are truly nothing without you.

I pray this in your son’s name

In Jesus Christ name 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

Taking All Of Your Worries and Cares To The Lord!

Girl in front of Alter Photo by David Besh on Pexels.com

Today, I want to share with you what I did at church before it started. What I did was so freeing to me in my life issues. You do not have to go to church to do what I am sharing with you. this is something that anyone can do at any time. I just was at church and had a heavy heart so, I thought well God you are everywhere however, I am in your home. Therefore, I will go to the Alter and leave it all there for you. Now I have done this at home a few months ago. Nevertheless, I seemed to pick it back up so, I felt at that minute as my heart was heavy. I need to cast it out again. Since I was at church, I figured the best place to cast it was to really go to the Alter and Neil down in his home and give it back to him. Now, I do need to let you know just because I tell you this is where I gave it back to him. Does not mean if you have a heavy heart today and feel like after you are reading this blog. You need to do the same however,you do not have a church or you will not go back to church again until this Sunday. You do not have to again be at a church to do this. You can do it right now. you can even do it anywhere. Because, the one thing I need you to know is that God is everywhere. His door as I told you before is always open to you. Going to church does not make him listen to you anymore then you talking to him while you are in your car, in the shower, in bed, at your kids school, at your job, in the doctor’s office, at a movie theater , you could even be buying items at a store waiting at the checkout counter. He is everywhere. Therefore, with that just know he is open to hear from you at anytime and anywhere. With anything. Yes! Any thing that is in your heart, that is troubling you today.

Now I have written to you about going to him before however, I did not share what I shared with him. This is something that we all really need to do for his word tells us to do so. God also tells us not to pick it back up once we tell -cast it off to him. However, do not feel bad if you do this as well. For I have already shared that I picked it back up as well. Remember you are human, and this is hard to let go. Now you may be saying what did she pick back up. It was my worries of life. All my cares issues that keeps someone up at night. Even though I know I should be able to sleep at night for, for he is up all night caring for you and me. So, for that I am losing sleep for nothing. Again however, I may know this hence, I have picked it back up. So, for that I lose sleep. Now, I want to share what I did leave at the alter so, you can see not what my worries are but how not because it is me. However, if you are feeling like I can not leave this or that. Or you may be saying he (God) cannot help me with that. There is NOTHING TO BIG OR TO SMALL. That he will not carry for you. he (god) will even fix it for you as well. Nevertheless, I do need you to know he will fix it for you better then you would have ever thought. So, if I could ask you before you read what I casted off to him. today, if you are going to try this. Just cast it off. Do not share what you want done with it. Let him work on it his way for you. for his plans are better than your plans for your life. I promise you as the word says all good gifts come from him. So, lets cast our life issues to him an let his word catch you with all good gifts back to you. For because, we are going to trust him with it all. When I was at the Alter, I just started casting it all off. this was not a prays of thanksgiving, or a prayer of forgive me for this or that. I will tell you we need to do all types of praying. For I just felt being at that Alter I needed to cast off all my cares and worries. My heart was so heavy at that point. I even cried out to him. Not caring who was around for I was in his Temple. I knew in a few minutes in church. I would be singing words of prays and at some point, in the day I would be asking for forgiveness for my sins of the day. I wanted to just give my worries and cares of what was on my heavy heart. Leaving it at the alter for him.

However, again if you are not at church and think well there is no alter. You can do this anywhere you tell him that you are leaving it at the altar, at his feet. Today as you Neal down to him. A few months ago, when I did this I just prayed on my knees and told him that same thing. It is more important to just leave it with him and communicate with your Lord and savior.

Now here is my list of what was heavy on my heart. My bills, having no job, my SSA issues , my health , my lawsuit, my weight (being to heavy), my family issues, my dads health, my forgiveness issues, my loss of vision, my loneliness, my not being able to do what I did before ,my car accident issues, my fear of not being liked by others because I can now be seen as a burden to them, My not casting it and leaving it with him. My just not trusting him with it and picking it back up.

So, do not think he does not want to hear it all. He knows what is on your heart anyways. He is just waiting for you to cast it on to him. He (GOD) will take all matters to heart and help you with them. Just know he will do it his way and in his timing. Which I do want all my issues fixed however, I want them fixed right now and my way. Hence, I do know that as much as I want it all right now fixed. I may have troubling thoughts at times however, I am going to wait on him. For as the Bible says his ways are not our ways , and he cares for you and me so much that he will never leave or for sake us, there are a ton of Bible verses (his word) , that tells you and me he has us, and because we are his children he will not let us be taken out of the palm of his hand.

 

 

 

 

 

Dear heavenly Father,

Today I come boldly to you with my readers to help us. As we cast our cares on to you. as 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. says. Please help us to stay lifted in your word. So that we can keep our eyes on you and not our worries. For as your word says James 1:17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. We can do this because you do not change. Even though we have heavy hearts and a large load. we need to see that. All good things come from you. so, there is no need to worry. As you say in, Joshua 1:5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Your word is as strong today as it was in Moses time. So, as you say you will not leave or for sake us. We need to know that as we cast our cares over to you. You will do all that needs to be done. In your timing and within your will. Because as you say in Psalm 55:22) 22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. So, as you say that in your word. I ask you

 

Yes, father if it is your will please let me have what it says in your word about my heart’s desire Psalm 20:4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. Father let this stand true. Again, for the Bible tells your children. The truths you have for them. if we follow your word and be obedience to your word. Lord teach me as your word says in Psalm 25:4 Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. As you say in Psalm 27:11Teach me your way, Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressor’s father teach me how to go on in this world so I do not fall to what the world has for me. And For father I ask you today as you say in Proverbs 4:11 I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. So, give us the wisdom so, our path can be made correct by you. I know I do not want my path to go any other way than how you planned it before I was born. So, therefore as you say in Proverbs 3:6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. I ask you to do what you need to do make my life more glorified for your name sake. Keep my eyes on you lord. As Psalm 23:3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Yes, I ask you to do this. For I know that I want my life to be as you say in Psalm 16:11You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Making my life full of joy for you. So, when I get to heaven, I know I will have eternal life and joy with you. For I will not act here on earth as I do not know you. I will speak and act like it says in your word Psalm 9:10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. yes, as you say in 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.”. So, I will do the same. I need you all the days of my life. I can only be strong with you going before me. I also need to do everything with your strength as Philippians 4:13 I can do all things with Christ who strengthens me therefore, father I lean on all of you to help me and my readers take up our cross for you. please give us what we need to go on each day. Not having to worry for we will cast it on to you for we do know you do have all of it. You even say in Matthew 6:25-34 25 “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? 26 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own

So, with that father the last Bible verse that I leave in my prayer to you. let’s me know that you will care for us. Thank you, for your word and not being void on it. Love all that you teach me and my readers in your word. So, I am standing on it. With my readers. Leaving it all to you. And You will get the glory from me. For I am nothing without you. I pray my readers know that as well. You are there everything.

For this one is true and needs to end my prayer Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

I can go on all day my Lord. Thank you for that!!!!

In Jesus name I give you thanks and say Amen!

 

 

Dressing For A Battle In Life!

 

Did you know each morning when you wake up to start your day? There are a few things you should do before you go out the door each day.   Here is a list of what you should do each morning before you start your day.

  1. Pray and be thankful to the Lord for giving you another day here on earth.
  2. Spend time in God’s word
  3. Dress yourself for the battle of life. Putting on the full armer of God. (in prayer)
  4. Get in some type of exercise about 20 -25minutes
  5. Shower up and brush your teeth
  6. Dress for success (put on your Sunday best)
  7. Make a balanced breakfast for you and your family to eat together.
  8. Then if you have a family get them up for the day   and before you all head out the door eat that breakfast together

Yes! If you have a family, then this is the last step you should do. You may be saying there is no way I can start my day doing this or that especially when I have a family. I need to get them started and we all need to run out the door. you may even be thinking she is mad to think I have that type of time to do this with out getting my family up as well.

Here are my thoughts on why this is the way you should start your day. Well as you see the first, second and third items on the list is what is going to give you the time to do so.  I promise you if you start with these few items to do first. God will bless you throughout your day. Making sure that this can be done each day.  You will be granted so much more in life.

For example. You will be blessed with …

  1. More time in your day (which is major)
  2. More joy and happiness to fill that day.
  3. More rest then you could ever imagine
  4. More time spent with your family to enjoy each other
  5. A happier family Yes read that again!

Yes, read that list again. Now, the first list of things you need to get done may have you changing a few things in your life however you will be better for it in the long run. You may even be asking yourself why, did I not do this sooner in life. You may even laugh in a few weeks and say Teresa “Why did you not tell me this sooner. Now before I give you the keys that will have you having all of this. I need to let you in on what may have to change for you to have this really be put in place. You may have to change your go to bed and wake up time. I would even say if your children are not on a bedtime schedule you will have to rework that as well.  Hence, if you just start off with doing the first 3 items on your list the rest will just come with ease.

Here are the keys to how I know this will change your life for the best life ever. Did you know you should start off each day with…? No, I would not say breakfast first but as you see it is in the list. However, it is important and is there.  The first three items are the most important. Here is why

Well if you did not wake up this morning then I guess you did not have to thank God for your day. Hopefully you are with him now.  But since you did wake up today and can smell that coffee and the flowers. Praying (talking) and giving Thanks to him (God) will set you up for all that you need.  because you now can tell him all that is on your mind for the day.  Philippians 4:6 Never worry about anything. Instead, in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving. So, with just that verse we have the key to the first item that we need to do for the morning.  Now while you are in prayer and items 1-3 does not have to last all day all you need to give at first is about 2-4 minutes to each one.  However, with in time you will see that you will want to spend more time in doing the first 3 items. For when you look up to the lord life is not promised that it will be easier however, he will help you throughout your day.  Now when you pray and are getting ready to do item number 2 ask him to show you what you need to read for the day. This is how you will hear from him (The Lord). Just a chapter a day is good. Start by letting him guide you

Now, with number three as you get out of where you are in your quiet place. Because, this world has so much conflict each day as you put on his armer. He is going to protect you through it all.  Putting on the armer of God is in Ephesians 6:10-18

ok now you got your time spent with your Father God. Even though you spent time in the morning you should seek out time for him all day. For he is your helper in everything. the more you talk to him the better your day will be. You will find that you will have more time, be kinder, more caring and have more patience. Again, you are not promised an easier life however, you will be blessed for this and he will make those wrongs right. But this comes in his timing. Seek out his will for your life. Mathew6:33, Ask him to help you with this as well.

Therefore, we have our mind and spirit set on the Lord so, now we need to get our body in sink as well.

instead of running out the door and running to do your life chores (work, school, cleaning, etc.). Doing item number four exercise will help you with a lot of issues as well. Keeping your mind clear, your health in check, your sleep will be better for it. I promise you this there is a plethora of benefits that you will get from just Doing this morning’s list each day. You will not go wrong.  With any of it. Once you are done with number four  number five and six should be just easy items that we do every day nevertheless, do not take these items for granted  cleanliness and dressing for success  will make all of the difference in your life as well.

Lady’s just do not put on any old thing. You never know who you will meet. You have been created as a masterpiece for and by the Lord Ephesians 2:10. Therefore, show off his masterpiece. As your mind, spirit and body are one treat yourself as a masterpiece. All this matters to you more then anyone. You do deserve to do this for yourself.  You will also show others how the Lord works in you by following this list. By honoring him by being his handy work.

Number seven now we fueled our spirit, mind, soul, and body. Hence, we will need to put food into us as well so, we can run the race before us, so as you get ready to wake up the family to get them out the door. Let’s not for get to feed the body and spend time with the ones we do love. We are not promised tomorrow Matthew 6:34 so, make your breakfast time a joyful time with your family. Letting them know you care about their start of their day. Therefore, the best way to do so is start it off for them with a sit-down breakfast and a short morning time with them.

You will be better for it.

As I rap this blog up, I just want you to know. You may be saying even though this list is long it is short. However, I do not think the time is there. Please! Let me let you know make this time for the Lord, you and your family for this will be enjoyed by all. God will give you all

the time that is needed for you to do this as well. For once your day is off and running with the day’s choices of chores. You can not get back this time. And you do not want to miss out on all that you have to get and give.

As I write these words to you believe me. I need to take a step back and do the same in my life. Sometimes we like to give advice. Nevertheless, it is hard to listen to as well. For ourselves.

 

Dear Heavenly father,

Today as I want to make sure that my first fruits are given to you because, as I know this is what we are supposed to do. Please help me be a better steward of my time for you. for I know that as I let my readers know this is a better course of action. To start off are day. There is only one way to give you all the glory in our day. So, why do we run to start our day. For getting about you and what or who should come first in this life. For by looking and seeking you out will surely make our days better for us and are family’s. As I know you are the creator of all, and we are nothing without you. so, forgive us for each day or somedays for getting to put you first. Thank you for giving us another day to get it right with you. for I know your word is not void. as I read the scriptures that you promise us. And will do so much more for us. If we will just follow your son (Jesus Christ). We are granted so much more in this life. For we will have everlasting life with you. as you tell us in your words,

Ephesians 2:10, For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  Matthew 6:33-34 ESV but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.  Ephesians 6:10-18 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 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” Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go” 1 Peter 5:7Throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you. 2 Chronicles 15:7” But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”

Not because we are who we are but, because you are living inside us thank you for your words that will not go void to our ears. Please help us father not fall to what this world has. Please help us as we follow you give us all that we need each day. To be strong in you.

In Jesus name AMEN!

 

Did You Give Thanks For Today And All That You Have?

No matter what is going on in your life Good or Bad. I pray as you do pray. You thank him (God) for what you do have and for even your troubles. Give Thanks for everything. You really do not know how blessed you are.  We always want to look at how we are doing, and a lot of people think. if I only had a better (insert), or if I only did not have to go through (insert), or Why is this happening (insert).  Yes! Thank God up above   for EVERYTHING. Good, bad or indifferent. I say this because who are we.  He is the creator of it ALL.!  God has your back NO MATTER what. I know there are some people out there saying This or that. ( yeah sure  if that is true why did  he  take my family member , why  do I not have a job, why did my child go astray. Why am I all alone? Why am I not healed from my sickness? Why can ‘t I have more money, so I do not have to live paycheck to paycheck.  You can even (insert your why here) . No matter what the why is or how bad you think you have it.  Even if your world is as right as rain.

First, let me say. You are nothing without him (God) again weather you believe it or not.  He (Jesus Christ) really has your back. He (God) knows before you were born how your life would be. He (God) knows all your troubles.  He even knows when you are going to go through them all. Troubles, trials, happiness, sadness no matter what it is. He already even knos how you are going to respond to your issues. However, he (God) did give you and me free will as well.  just to let you and me live the way we want too.  So, with that you cannot blame all your life on him.  However if you do  take that leap of faith  and learn more about him (God and his son)  and then as you love him and learn  that his son (Jesus Christ)  died for YOU AND ME  believing in your heart that his son did die for you and me to take away the troubles of this world and all of the worlds sin. And so, we can have eternal life when we die in Heaven.  I cannot tell you that all your troubles will just fade away but, I can tell you that you will live the best life you could ever have. Yes !!! I said that. I will say it again Yes you will live the best life ever.

Now, let me explain. He (God) never promises a perfect life to anyone. James  1:2-4  Hence, he does have many promises given to you and me that says if you truly believe in his son (Jesus Christ) that he (God) sent his son to save the world from sin and give us eternal life. John 3:16 He will never leave you or for sake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 He will work all things out for those who love him (Jesus Christ) for is glory. Romans 8:38 God will make your path straight. Proverbs 3:6 He is a way maker. Isaiah 43:16 God says his ways are not your ways but, you will be blessed by him better then you could ever imagine. Jesus Christ came to give you and me eternal life  that we can live forever  in heaven. God says you need to worry for nothing. if he did for the birds what more will he do for you. Mathew 6:25-27 There is a million reasons to just take that leap of faith and love, learn, and want to get closer to him. Please take out the time and seak him out in his word or even go to church.  I am sure you even have afriend that you may call a bible thumper  go find them and have a conversation about him (god and his son) .God does want the best for you and me

 

Now if you are saying OK OK. how do I let him GOD-Jesus Christ in to my heart. Let me pray with you NOW ! Yes Now !

Dear heavenly Father,

Today I come to you with (insert name).  I want them to say this prayer with me out loud to you. father today I want to know you better. I do believe that I am a sinner that was saved by your son Jesus Christ. please come in to my heart. Help me through my life.  I want to get to know you better. Thank you for giving me the gift of GRACE. for I know my life is hard I do not see what is in front of me however Good bad or indifferent. I want you to live inside of me to learn to give you the glory back to you. I want that joy and peace that others talk about when they believe in you. today I do hear you will be with me forever and I want you to love on me and thank you for letting me come to you when I felt right and ready.  Again, thank you for the gift of Grace and for putting your son on the cross for my sins.

In Jesus name  I pray AMEN!

If you prayed this prayer I want you to know WELCOME MY BROTHER OR SISTER IN CHRIST ! I am praying that you go farther to seek him out now and here is how. 1. Find a Bible  (book or app)  there are many versions the one that may be the easiest  may be (NIV)or (NASV)  or you can find an app called Audio Bible. It is free and there are many types on it. I use that app and have listen to the bible (NIV) on it this is a great apt for they even have it narrated with drama. I find myself staying in the word longer just because how beautiful and easy it is to understand it (THE Bible) Gods word.

The second thing is getting a book by Dr. Tony Evans call Life Essentials’ I have been a believer most of my life but, there were things I did not understand. Dr. Evans in this book breaks it down so well for the believer. This is a must buy book. He takes you through what it means to be a believer like ……  what a new believer gets when they learn to give God their heart, Sin, the gift of Grace, what Faith really is. All I can say this is a must read  with your Bible together  for Dr Evans lets you see with your Bible all the answers to your questions you have ever had. Even if you do not want God in your life or do not want to believe. Just get this book  and start reading. I believe Dr. Evans has something to show you to change you. with God’s Grace.

Third, find a Bible based church. This is so you can learn and find more people to help you on your New path with Jesus Christ. So, you also do not have to do this new life alone.

Fourth, and the last item each day at any time talk to him (God) as ihave told you in my last blog . He never sleeps. Jesus Christ has an open-door policy. No matter what is going on TALK TO HIM. He is My Best Friend   and he can be yours too. So, spend time talking to him. Tell him everything. He is listening. I can promise you that.

I love you and am praying for ALL OF my readers. WELCOME TO A BLESSED LIFE AND AN ETERNAL ONE IN HEAVEN!!

Thank YOU FATHER FOR ALL THAT I HAVE YES EVEN THE HURTS AND SORROWS! I WILL GLORIFY YOU ALL OF MY DAYS! FOR THERE IS NO ONE LIKE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR THAT !

LOVE YOU ALWAYS YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST TERESA GUFFANTI ! I AM PROUD TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT YOU (JESUS CHRIST) 😊
