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 2020 we’ve gotten prepared to go to the throne twice, however, is it the correct throne. We’re all running to the store to get another roll of toilet paper so; we do not miss out in going to the throne. I am not sure when anyone told the world that this COVID-19 issue was a stomach-bathroom issue. I personally thought it was an upper respiratory issue. Nevertheless, I see a bigger message in the Toilet Paper out of stock issue. Yes, I do. Roll with me on this.
Therefore, as we buy up all of the store’s toilet paper so again, we can go to our outhouse and sit on the throne. Hence maybe we need to go to our church house and kneel at The Lord and saviors Throne. Yes, instead of getting more rolls of paper. Let’s get out our biblical scrolls (GODS WORD- THE BIBLE). There is no answer in Do I need another roll of toilet Paper. However, there is all types of answers in your biblical scroll. There is not a truth to going to your outhouse other than giving out your waste. Even though you must get rid of the waste in your body. Let’s put the waste there and then go to the Lords throne and fill up our bodies with the Lords word. The world has a lot of waste to share with us, therefore, lets share with the world the Lords word (the bible) Instead of the worlds waste. In Place of going- driving to your local store or getting online to buy one more toilet paper roll. Let’s open up Gods word and share a page in his scroll. As you see the need to store up more toilet paper sit down with a piece of paper and your bible and store up Gods word in your heart. For this COVID-19 issue is real. The only way I see that it is going to be dealt with Is when WE THE PEOPLE kneel down at the correct throne and store up Gods word in our heart. We are not being shaken with stomach -bathroom, issues. I have not heard one new story about a person dying going to the outhouse too much and not having toilet paper. But I do think we are missing out and losing lives. Because we are not listening to God. He is I do believe Shaking us up. As we are now getting ready to go back into our homes and be shut in. God is doing that to us for sure shaking us up. Let’s do like Noah Genesis, (7:1-9), did wen God shut him in. Seek out the Lord for all of your life and this world’s crazy fall out. Let shut off the NEWS and turn on all of your biblical items (online church, worship music, audio bibles, Gods word bible). Kneel down by your bed. Use this time to seek God, at his throne. Sit boldly at his feet. Speak with him giving his words back to him. Share your heart with him. Pray boldly speak loud and clear giving him Thanks for everything. Give him back the time he desires from you. Call a friend, pray together as you both kneel by your bedside. Let’s let this shut in be the last one. Let’s end this year giving God the Glory he so honestly deserves. Let’s not make the toilet paper companies Rich. Let’s make our lives Richer for the Lord. Our fallen world needs us to bring God back into this world. Let’s really celebrate the last few months truly giving thanks on thanksgiving to The King of Kings – The Lord of Lords. Let’s sincerely make this Christmas a MERRY ONE! SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LORD OF LORDS! Let’s bring this New year in Loving on each other. Forgiving and forgetting about how we all are different but the same. Remembering how we all came from the same place. WE all have the same body parts and bleed the same. Let’s show our creator THE KING OF KINGS -THE LORD of LORDS- JESUS CHRIST that we did not forget about HIM! Bring him back to the THRONE. Yes! Let him sit on the throne and let us kneel at his feet! Ring in 2021 not letting the devil steel our JOY – PEACE – And what our heavenly father did for us!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today I come boldly at your THRONE kneeling at your feet. I do pray that this world gets it soon before it is too late. I know we have to go through a lot of stuff in this world. Yes! I do know that we have a bible filled with what is going to happen in this world. Nevertheless, I pray that we (the Nation) see that you are giving us a chance to make sure we do not fall short of knowing your son. I know you have given us so many signs. I do know at some point it will be too late for some. Even though I know this I pray to you asking that you find a way to help them to really find your son before it is too late. Help me to share your word even more. Let me be a blessing to you to share your word. I pray that you can do the same for my readers as well. If they do not understand who you are, I pray my words that I share each week touch their hearts. To love you like I do. To know you are really their source and resource for all. I pray this world understands that the toilet paper issues are not really the world’s biggest issues. That we need to seek out you and your word. We need to keep you on the THRONE and kneel down by your feet. Not storing up rolls of toilet paper but, storing up your word. In Addition, sharing your word with others. For this COVID- 19 ISSUE is big and real. However, I do know if we do not get it now. You are going to do something else to shake us up even more. I just pray that we all do not fall short and miss out on your GLORY! For I know at some point there will be no more chances to get it right. SO, my heart is bleeding for the non-believer to not fall short and miss out on living in your kingdom forever! I thank you always and love you for your MERCEY that it is new each day. That your son died for my sins and GRACE was given to your children.
In Jesus Name AMEN!
Today, I ask anyone that is reading my blog. Please share it with one person. If you genuinely enjoy my writings and believe they bless you each week. Share that blessing PLEASE! If it is Gods will I pray to touch more lives each week. Thank you to all of my followers. You warm my heart each week. XOXOXO
Do you often question, why is this happening to me? Do you often wonder when is this going to change? Whatever, this is… The Hardship, The Trial, The Tears of Sadness, The Darkness of Life, The Bad Reports, The Money Issues, The Children, Spouse, or family member not listening, or just everything going wrong. Do you even say how long do I need to wait, God?
I bet you hate to wait. I am sure you even have your favorite issue that you really hate waiting on. (insert it here)
Well, what if I told you., You are waiting for nothing. Yes, you may have your waiting time be longer than it needs to be. There is someone who has all the answers waiting on you. The only difference with this person is. They will wait patiently for you. This person has all that you need waiting on you. Yes, there is someone WAITING FOR YOU! Your life issues may not change overnight. Your storms of life will still be hard nevertheless, this person will give you all that you need to deal with it. He will walk along side of you. Giving you the peace, and joy to get through it all. I know he has all the promises you will ever need. He will never leave you or forsake you.
You just need to give him some time. Yes, I am even thinking you may say but, there is no more time in my day. If you only knew what I have to do. I can tell you he will even give you back the time you spent with him. There is no one else in this whole world that can do all this for you. Why do we not find time for him? I can even say some of us even talk a good game about him and what he can do for someone hence, we do not find the time for him.
We let him wait and wait and wait and wait and say it again let him wait for us. We search the world for all the answers and wait for others to give us what we think we need.
Therefore, are waiting time is going to be longer than it has to be. We even have issues at times where we give him our list of troubles and issues at the end of a day. I honestly believe we make ourselves wait longer because we did not start with him.
So, today as I have to do the same as I am sharing with you. GO Sit IN THE BOAT WITH JESUS!
Once you firmly plant your butt in the boat with Jesus by praying, reading, listening, and worshiping him all day long. Truly seeking him out within your 24hour day. God will be the ROCK you need during your waiting time. Stop waiting on him to do or get you out of whatever you are going through. Overall, you have to stop thinking you are WAITING on GOD. GOD is WAITING ON YU
God will ultimately, reveal all that you need to help you during your waiting time.
he does already ultimately have greater plans for you. God is waiting on you. Yes, God is waiting on you
He knows all. So, from this point on. From the start of you day. Even before you plant your feet on the floor after you stop that morning alarm to wake up out of bed to the time you put your head back on that pillow. Truly seek him out. Use all of the free minutes of your day to turn to him. I can tell you he promises to be there for you. Like no one else can be. During this time, I need you to know start as you get closer to God. Also, learn to be more like his son Jesus. Even ask throughout your day as it is going What would Jesus do during this time. God promises his children if we Ask. KNOCK and SEEK. His will for your life will be done for his Glory and name sake. GOD loves you more then anyone in this world could ever. God created you in his image.
As you read the Lords word (The Bible). You will see all of the people that went before you. Life was not easy for them nevertheless; God made a way for them. Adam and Eve, Cain and Able, Noah, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Jeremiah, Daniel, Samuel Ruth, Esther, Peter, Paul, The Blind Man, Rahab, Mary, Martha, Lazarus, The Lady at the Well, Tabitha, The Man at the Pool of Bethesda ,John, and so many more. You will even read about the FAITH that each one had for his (God’s) name. The book of Hebrews has a Whole chapter filled with the faith driven people of God. (Hebrews 11). The book of James even tells us to count it all a joy our trials. The 5 chapters gives us knowledge to know a trial is really worth the wait for Jesus. Moses shows us that any area of our life can be parted to change the outcome. Ruth shows us that a mate can be in our site as long as we serve him. Job shares with us no matter the loss of everything. Be faithful to God and him (GOD) will give you back your life even better through the loss and sickness. God teaches us even when our family does not want us. Like in Josephs life if you just stay faithful, he will make you a king. For Ester God shows us that There is a time for everything, and a Queen was made. In Cain and Able he showed that let him have venges for all wrongs. In Mathew God shows us His son who came to take our sins away and give us everlasting life. In Mark God shows us who we need to follow. In Jeremiah God shows us that he has plans for our life. In Abram he shows us how there is always a ram in the bush. With Mary and Martha Jesus shows us to not just be busy working. This story brings it all home for me today with what I am sharing Go sit with him at his feet like Mary did. He taught them it is more important to be with him. Then work and wait for him. That our work is for us not to let him wait on us.
I feel even more today than before as I write this blog. I will not have him wait on me however, I will wait on him. For even ALL the people in the Bible had to wait on him just because God needed to see their faithful ness. TO HIM!
MAY GOD BE THE GLORY FOR THIS BLOG AND ALL OF MY LIFE!
I pray that you DO not have God wait on you. BUT BE FAITHFUL IN WAITING ON HIM! Romans (8:28).
t is now one in the morning! November 1 as here, and October 31 has now passed. The first Holiday of the Fall season is now over Halloween, Two more to Go. Thanksgiving being the next one in days. Maybe today we need to start being thankful if we are not in a storm. However, be thankful even if you are. For, “This too Shall Pass.” I have something I want you to do today if your storms of life are so hard and you are seeking help for them.
Go sit in the boat with Jesus. Yes, I will share how to do just this. This is something I do when life is just troubling me so. My storms of life are not easy at all. However, I know my God is working on my storms and his hand is on your storms too. You will really be thankful for the storm you are in. Yes, you read that correctly. When you go sit in the boat with Jesus.
Ok at this point, I am sure the night is over. You are more then likely in your bed with all of the covers around you and a pillow at your head. For here in Texas the weather is very cold it is around 49-55 degrees outside. Therefore, if this is the case. Again, you are in bed with your covers all around you and a pillow at your head. This is an awesome place to be in the boat with Jesus. However, if you are not in your bed and want to do this Just go get a blanket and a small pillow. Then, go sit in your favorite chair. I promise no matter where you are you can always go sit in the boat with Jesus. The only other items you may want is your Bible. If you are really feeling this after I do this with you. The next time you are feeling bad with your storms of life. You will not call a friend. You will find yourself going to sit in the boat with Jesus more often. You may want to also play some praise and worship music. While, Getting in the boat with Jesus.
Now, I can promise if you are sad when you started this. Jesus will be having you change your sadness to joy. You will have peace like you have never had before. You will really be rested at the end of this time in the boat with Jesus and his disciples. Yes, you are not alone with Jesus we have to have the Disciples. We are crashing their party with Jesus. We are going to learn with the disciples. However, this story may be over 2,000 years old it still rings true today.
So, let’s Go God!
If you do not have the items, you need. Please, go get them and sit in your favorite chair or get in your bed. Now that you have these Items wrap the blanket around you pretend the blanket is Jesus wrapping his arms around you like a hug. Put that pillow behind your head. Get very comfy. If you are like me when I start to do this my storm is so hard. I am praying out to my Lord. As I am getting my items ready for my boat ride. I am sometimes even crying while I am praying. So, if this is the case pray and cry first. Hence, please do not do this for long. But do it for a minute be real with Jesus. I can tell you; the disciples are doing just that too. At the start of this boat ride. The storm is bumpy, rough, windy, rainy, and cold. However, Now lets get our bible and see what Jesus does and says. Let me share there are three different accounts of this. It is in the Book of Mathew, Mark, and Luke.
23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. 24 Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm. 27 The disciples were amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked. “Even the winds and waves obey him!”
35 As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36 So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). 37 But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. 38 Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” 39 When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. 40 Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!”
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So, they got into a boat and started out. 23 As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger. 24 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped, and all was calm. 25 Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!”
Now, that we have read all three accounts of Jesus calming the storm. Do you see how he helped them not worry about? The storm that they were dealing with in that boat. Remember, we at this time are in the boat along with Jesus and the disciples. We crashed this party so, let’s not let our storm of life shake us up like the disciples are doing. Let’s learn from Jesus. Take your pillow and blanket REST, REST YOUR PRETTY LITTLE HEAD. Jesus has it! Yes, he is in control of this storm and all of the storms you will go through in your life. If you have not fallen a sleep by this point because of the rest that Jesus has given you about dealing with your storm.
I pray as you are in the boat with Jesus your tears have turned in to Peace, Love, Joy and Strength to let go of this storm and let Jesus take you to the other side of it. Now, is the time to play praise and worship music.
GODS GOT IT! Is a great song to play at this time by Jay Moss! There are many songs to play however, this is a fun song I do like to play. I will share this link from YouTube at the end of this blog.
I pray today for I do not know how long your storm will last. I do pray that you know Jesus is in control and is calming the winds, rain, and bumpiness of it all. Just keep the faith and lean on him.
Dear Heavenly Father,
All I can say is, Thank You! For your word. That it shows us that you are working in every aspect of our lives. I know we may not know when our storms of life may end. Nevertheless, you show us in your word that you are in control of it all. The Road may get bumpy. The shore may be rough. Still through the bad weather of it all YOU come through it all by calming the storms of life. I pray today as your children struggle at times to not forget that you have your hand in all of the storms no matter how big or small. You Got It! That your timing is the best timing. I pray that my readers see this as well and to always give you the time you need to help them through it and then give you the glory for what is done with in that storm after it has finished. That they came through it. That they see you are the only one that could calm them and get the storm to blow over. That the victory lays in your hands. That no matter if times are good or bad, they learn to read your word so, when the storms of life do hit them hard they have a great foundation to lean on. As I pray this for my readers. I pray this for myself. For sometimes I forget that you are going to get me through it too. That it is your timing that is the best for me and my readers. Romans (8:28)
In Jesus Name Amen!

Dear heavenly Father,
Thank you always Thank You! I am so proud to share my winning ticket with the world. I know that there may be some people shaking their head. Nevertheless, I do know that you are the winning ticket all day long. I know there is no line to stand in to believe that this world will give me the winning ticket to meet all of my needs. I know the cost your son paid for me is so much greater than anything the world could give me. I truly know I may have trials in my life however, there is not one person in your word (Bible) that did not go through something. The story or lesson that this tells me when I am reading your word. Are there maybe troubles in this world. But no one can over come them with out your son walking along side them. So, today thank you that I can lean on your word and more so that I can serve you by telling the Good News you have for your children. That I have learned to lean on you through it all. I pray my readers learn to get the winning ticket today. That it is not in any worldly Lotto ticket. That you truly have there back and so much more for them. Thank you for putting your son on the cross to save me and my readers. I pray they open up your word and seek out the trues you have for them. That they get the gift of Grace that you have for them. That is truly a gift you give to us as believers. I love you and thank you! 😊
Over a few years ago. I called my blog the title you see there at the top of this page. Struggling blessed but not alone on the journey. Today as I am struggling so much more in my life. God brought it to my attention the title of my blog. I have to say as I thought about it. While speaking with God in prayer. I realized that has been my whole life. Yes, I will share more of my life with you all soon, I do know as I have been writing for the last year. I have let you in on some of my life. I am going to share even more with you all in the weeks and months to come. However, let me get back to the title of my blog. As I was talking with God. He was and has been showing me a lot that he is working on with me. Yes, I do struggle! Yes, I am Blessed! Yes, I am not alone on my journey for sure. God shows up every day ready for me. I do want to let you all know this is not only true for me. It is true for you as well. Please, as I have been writing in the last year. My prayer is that you see the Glory of God in my life. If you do know me for any amount of time. You have heard me give God the glory for all of my life. I need to say I want you to understand right now before I move on with my Journey. Please understand, you are loved by God. Even if the world has let you down. God has not. I know this is hard if you are going through something (a struggle) right now. I do want to walk along side you and let you know. God loves you so much. He knew you before you were in your mother’s womb. God tells this to Jeremiah.
Let’s go to the bible, in the book of Jeremiah, (1:5).
It says, “before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Now, before you say Yes, but the second part of that verse is told to Jeremiah for he made him a prophet to the nations. Let me share with you. God did not just create one person. If we go back to the Book of Genesis just the first chapter. You Learn that God created everything. So, at this point you were created as well. Now you may not become a prophet for the nations nevertheless, here is what God does say about creating all of us. Genesis (1:27-28); So, God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28: God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
This tells me and it should tell you as well. He created you for a lot too. We again may not be a prophet for the nations. However, he shows us that in the beginning he created man and woman in his image. Then I want to show you just in Jeremiah, that not only was he created like you and me. He is sharing with Jeremiah he knew the plans he had for him before he was in his mother’s womb. I know there are many more versus and people in the Bible that tell us about being created, as well as the plans he has for all of us.
Nevertheless, today I pulled that one out from Jeremiah just to show you all. That he created him to do big things in Jeremiah’s time. If you read on you see Jeremiah saying that he is just a young person. Again, I want you to see that God started on his plans for us. Not only in our mother’s womb but his plans were at work as soon as we were born. In our young age. Now, let me share with you my own story at a young age. I pray as you read my story you may see. Gods work in you as well. Now, I was diagnosed at a young age with a vision disability. As I look back it was always rearing its ugly head even before the doctors told my parents. This disability was not found until I was at the age of 11 years old. My family was told at that time. That I had a form of Macular degeneration called Stargardt (a child’s form of Macular degeneration). When the doctor told my dad and mother all they wanted was for the doctors to fix it. Now, they did share that there was no cure for what I had. But there were devices to help me see. So, let me also share. I do love my parents very much. Nevertheless, I say this with a lot of love. My parents do love the Lord. Yes, they took my eye problem before the lord in prayer all the time. Of course, they wanted a miracle. That miracle of course that everyone was praying for was for me to get my 20/20 sight back. Well, today I can say I did not get that miracle. My sight is even worst then at that time. Through the years, I really did not see this but, it was slowly changing for the worst. Today, I sit here in pretty much being totally blind. I now have to say my struggle all of my life and still even today is harder than ever. At a young age my parents I do believe they really did want the best for me. Nevertheless, they had and still have so many problems of their own. That they could not see a way to really help their daughter. They at one point told me. I just needed to be married and someone would take care of me. I laugh today for I am not married. Of course, every little girl dream is to be married. However, that was not at this time the road God had or has for me. I even all my school years all the adults (teachers) would just really share with me. That I was so pretty that I would just meet someone and be cared for. Again, I am laughing for this is not happened. Not true. Now let me share with you as everyone was sharing my married status with me. I told my mother that God had a plan for me. That one day I would make a difference in this world. I do still believe that with all my heart. For let me share with you as I am writing this blog to you all today. And my life is harder than ever I do see God working behind the scenes.
Today, as I was praying to God and he showed me my Title of my blog. I do believe it was not by chance that I picked that title that day. My struggles that day was just as hard as it always has been. Yet, God said look at the second part of that Title. Not a lone on the journey. Yes, I am physically alone. However, he has walked along side me at every turn and decade. I have stories to share with the world for his glory. I have shared my story from time to time with people that I do meet. People have said, “You need to write a book to help others”
Currently, my struggles have gotten worse But, as I have been battling with a lot of trials in my life. I do believe it is time to share with the world my story. Still, I do pray people do learn to know that they can make it through anything. That God never promises an easy life for anyone. But, if you put your trust, hope, faith, belief, and seek him out. God! That is. He will make a way for you. God created you and me for so much more. Yes, the struggles for me are hard. Hence, my God is bigger than all of them. The thing I think the most at this point as I do struggle and there are very few people behind me. My God is greater than this world and he is working with me. I do believe as I have shared God knew me before the world did. God has a plan for all. But today, I do know my place in this world is to show the world. You all may have given up on me. However, My Lord and savior has not. Please, as I do share my story and my struggles. Know your story and struggles are real and true. Yet! Hang on! Hang in there! Know he is working for you to. Just, I pray you see who to have faith in. Even when you feel like nothing is happening. I do believe he is working harder to help you through it. Keep praying and working to see him. Wait on his timing. I say this for me too. However, he will not be a day late or a dollar shy. I do have many stories in the weeks to come to share how he worked it out. For me in the past. I just need to hang on to see what he is doing with me now. I know each time I have seen his work done in my life. It has been better than I have ever thought it could be. I do have many great stories. You do to I am sure. We at times just forget how he made away before.
This walk I am almost totally sure is going to get harder for me. For in the last few years it has but, I will stay faithful and let God do a greater work in me. I know I will not let the world label me. I am here to show you all MY GOD IS IN CONTROL!
I pray today you see this story and come back to hear more about what God is doing in my life. To give him the glory. Also, to show you all. He not only has created you, but his plan is greater than anything the world can promise you.
I love you all and am praying that you hang in there. If you have a struggle of your own. Seek the Lord out. Get that bible out and read it and talk with him. He is waiting on you. I challenge you to pray to him. Prayer does work! Having faith in the Lord is more powerful than wishing on a star. Blessings to all. 😊
Bring your shackles. Bring your stresses of life. Bring your troubles for the world. Bring your sadness. Bring your passion. Bring your treasures. Bring it all to him. Yes, take it to him. He (Jesus) cares for you. Even if you have just a mustard seed of faith. I can tell you that you need to bring it all to Jesus and trust he will move mountains for you and me. He can take it all. He has already taken up the cross for you and me. Give it all up to him. It is time to get ready for the revival. Jesus Christ the king of kings is, coming soon. Just know Jesus is for you and not against you. Give him the Glory no matter what you are facing. Bring it to his feet. God has given his son for you and me. Do it today please do not wait to come to him. Believe God loves you no matter what your physical challenges are. I can only share what I know from the Bible God’s word. He can not lie. His word is alive and active more today then ever. As this world is in a crisis. It is a world Crisis. Just know God is controlling it all. The Government is a part of this world. However, if you are a believer you know that we are in this world but, we are not of this world. We know that God has it all. Yes, because we are a part of the world, we need to follow rules and the law. God wants us to not turn on each other. He just wants us to seek, him out. Today more them ever. Look for his everlasting love. Bring your burdens to the throne. Trust what you cannot see. Faith is walking without sight. Jesus will not stop the troubles of this world. They must happen for his Glory to come. However, if you and everyone around us. Would just look up to him. His mercy will be new. God wants the best for all. That is why he put his own son on the cross. When in the Old Testament we could not follow the law that he gave. He loved and still loves us so much that he Put his son on the cross. God made his perfect son. Suffer for our sins. He knew no one else could take the burdens (sins) of the world. Sit with God today! I know I have troubles of my own today. However, I want to let you know that I do believe God is working. No matter what. Believe me today my heart is breaking. My dad is not perfect at all. I have my troubles in my family. As we all do. I at this time I cannot go home. I do not drive. Believe me if I did, I would be on the road on the way home to my family. For my dad is extremely sick. He is dying. Yes, he is dying. Thank God no matter how much he is in pain and suffering. No matter how there is no cure for his cancer. No matter how he is crying out for help. I want you to know HE is giving God and Jesus his son The Glory for it all. The devil I believe is trying to work in his head currently. With all of his pain
I say this because I am not sure what he is hearing in his head. But I am told he is speaking out to God. I am told by my sisters and brother. He just wants prayer as we are in the room with him. As they pray with and over him. There is a peace that over comes him.
Now there may be one of you reading this saying if it is that bad. Then where is your God Now! Believe me he (GOD) is alive and well in that room. We just need to praise God. For I am believing that Jesus loves us so much even in our pain. Currently, the devil is just trying to play with my dad. He is thinking just like you. However, to me and my family this is more of a testimony about how one knows Gods Word and knows to stand on it even more. He my dad is again not perfect. But he is saved and a child of God. No matter what. He has always stood on God’s word. I know this is not fair to see someone you love to be in this much pain. I do not like it at all. Not one bit. However, God is a good God. I have seen God work in so many ways. For he is a way maker. I do believe his will is being done with my dad. I say this because it is amazing to watch someone be in so much pain. And still give love, honor, and Glory to his maker. I have been on the phone with him days and weeks before this. I have had bible talks with him. It is amazing to here him. Keep on sharing the word with me. He does know he has made a lot of sins in this world. For that is not for you and me to judge. For we all have sins. He knows Jesus died for him. I just love how we just talk about the goodness of the Lord. I do believe even through this time of hard ship. I will turn this time of sadness into a God (Glory story). I see it in a man that is not perfect at all. I watched this man (my dad) love the lord all of his life. I cannot remember a time that he was not sharing the word with someone. So even through this time of hard ship. It shows the power of having faith in The Lord. I do think this is also a lesson for all. What I mean by this is while he is in pain. He also is praising the Lord with his words back to him. So, as I hear and know this what it teaches me is GO SEAK JESUS OUT! GO READ HIS WORD! For when the times get hard. For you do not know how you will leave this earth. IF it will be a painful one like my dad’s. What I can tell you is if you know his word. Then you can put on the armer of God. It is the hardest thing to watch. Watching someone you love to suffer and know there is not one thing you can do. However, my family is doing something. Giving a Hallelujah to The King of Kings! The lord of Lords! The Alpha and the Omega! To Jehovah Gyri! The Messiah! Jesus Christ our Lord and savior! that through it all we will always serve the Lord! Yes! It is hard but it is the truth. God has my dad and all of my family in the palm of his hands. The devil has no place in That home in that family. My brothers and sisters and I are awfully close however, this struggle is allowing us to get even closer. Not only with each other but with Jesus Christ our Lord.
As I write this story today about my dad and my family and the love we have for the Lord. I pray you see it is a story for you to go seek the Lord out. Do not go one more day without giving him Jesus Christ! The Glory for all things. I pray that for you today.
Dear heavenly Father,
I com boldly to your throne. Currently, the Guffanti Family is struggling watching their Father suffer however, I pray that my story that I blog today shows my readers. That no family is perfect. No one will escape the troubles of life. Even during death. But the love you have for your children is endless. Especially, when no matter what is going on, we seek you out. That we first get saved by knowing that your son did die for our sins. Then starting and having a personal relationship with you and your son. Again, we do not become perfect after that but, we try to be more like your son Jesus Christ. I do know as this is a hard time, I will always Glorify you in the mists of it all. I will see my dad again. Where there is no pain and suffering. There is peace soon for all your children. I just hope this message of hardship if it hits one person. To seek you out then I feel it was just what needed to happen. to bring that person to you. For them to be in your kingdom for the rest of their life.
Please let your will be done with my dad. For I do know you are working better then we could ever do. Even in his suffering. I do know He loves you (my dad). We thank you for your mercy, and that it is new every day. That also know that you gave us the gift of grace. That we have your word during the good and bad times to stand on. I do love you. Please Father when you are ready take him home Lord. I will miss him, but I am honored to know I will be there soon. Please stop his suffering for he loves you! We give you the Glory for all that we are going through. Please give my mother the strength to be ok after his passing. For we are not a perfect family however, we will serve you all of the days of our lives. I love you Lord! Thank you for your son. Yes! Who the Son Sets Free Is Free Indeed! Thank you 😊
In your son’s name Jesus Christ, we pray Amen!
I leave you today with this bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11-14
11 For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration— “plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 You will call to me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“and I will restore your fortunes[a] and gather you from all the nations and places where I banished you”—this is the Lord’s declaration. “I will restore you to the place from which I deported you.”
So, today I want to ask you. What are you praying about? What do you want God to Help you with? Did you know, that God says in his word (The BIBLE) Matthew 21:22 – And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. And then in Matthew 7:7 – Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Here is another great verse that says around the same, John16:24 – hereto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. Now God also tells us not to waver in our faith in asking which here is a verse that lets you know that James 1:6-8 – But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavered is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed…..
Now if you have never asked him God for anything at this point. You may be saying Wow! I need to pray and ask him for X-Y-whatever your X –Y might be. Or you may be saying… Well, I am asking and I do not see him answering. Maybe this is not true. Well, First I want to show you a verse where he tells you that he cannot lie. That verse is in, Numbers 23:19 (ESV) 19 God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
As I have just given you versus that say to us that we can ask and he will do and cannot lie. There is a little bit more to all of this. So hold on. Keep reading for Yes he is going to answer yes he does not lie However, we need to read on in the Bible. Read ALL of the verse. ALL around it as well. Please do not take on one verse. Do not take one verse out of context. For as I tell you this truth. He will still answer you in everything. But here is the catch of his word and who he God is.
One it will be to glorify him, two you only have these promises if you are a believer in his son. Three he hears ALL prayers. He wants the best for ALL really I tell you even if you are not a believer in his son whether you want to believe it or not he created ALL of us. However he gives us free will. Which lets us make a choice to have FAITH, HOPE, TRUST and LOVE for his son. ALL it takes is a mustard seed of FAITH to have him answer your prayers. Now you may pray for him to answer in one way but you do not really know the future of that prayer. So trust in him if you’re thinking that he did not answer the way you asked. I am hear to share He answered in the best way for you. We only can see one thing that is the now and the hurt of today. But, he sees the future of it ALL.
For his ways are not our ways.
I also need you to know he is not a door mat either.
You just cannot think well I did not get this or that. So No way why should I read his word (the bible), believe in his son (Jesus Christ.
Who do you, REALLY THINK YOU ARE?
Did you create the world? Did you put your child on the cross to die for the worlds sins?
Your answers are NO and NO but, his are yes and yes to that and in prayer as well!
As my pastors son said it so well at his mother’s celebration of life!
Here is what Rev. Jonathan Evans told us as he was struggling with God. He (Jonathan) was telling him (God)! Why did you not answer me or our church WE were praying and our family believed in your son (Jesus Christ). We even tell the world about you and your son?
God said to him and he is telling it to us as well.
So let me share what he got back from God!
There was always two answers to your prayers, YES and YES!
She was either going to be healed or she was going to be healed!
She was either going to live or she was going to live!
She was going to be with family or she was going to be with family
She was either going to be well taken care of or she was going to be well taken care of!
Then God said to him THE VICTORY BELONGS TO NO ONE BUT ME!!!!!!
I gave MY SON up for ALL of YOU TO live!!!
And can honestly say GOD is telling YOU! THAT AS WELL!
So with all of that all I can say in prayer today is
Dear heavenly father,
Yes you are so correct the VICTORY IS ALL YOURS! Thank you for putting your son on the cross for me. Thank you for however you answer my prayers. I could never do what you have done for me for I am just a sinner saved by your son. I have the Gift of GRACE because, you gave it to me! Thank you my lord. If you do nothing else for me I am so thankful to you for all that you have already done. Again YES! The Victory Belongs to Jesus!
