I have a great story and testimony that I would like to share so, I can show how Jesus is really alive in this world . Please stay tune and follow me on this journey of Hope, Truth, Belief ,AND Faith. As I write each post I pray you (the reader) find that in todays times the Bible is true and that Jesus is real. He really will help you through anything you are going through. Please , take this journey with me. I pray my story’s (testimony) lets you see this .
HE (JESUS) IS THE REAL THING!! Lean on him and you will NEVER go wrong .
God Bless you and may our journey last a life time with Jesus.
Let’s talk today about where are you with God-Jesus. Are you Mary or Martha or could you be like the Rich man or Lazarus? These two stories are both in the book of Luke. Mary and Martha, you may know the story well. It is in Luke (10:38-42). Now the story of The Rich man and Lazarus you may not know that story. It is in Luke (16:19-31). If you do know both stories, you may ask yourself. They are two totally different stories. Therefore, where could she be going with this. Yes, you are kind of correct. So, as you know in the story of Mary and Martha, they both love the Lord. They both had time with Jesus. Not only did they see miracles and signs. They had a lot of time with Jesus. Now the story of The Rich Man and Lazarus let me first let you know just in case you do not know. In this story Lazarus is not Mary and Martha’s brother. He is a different guy for sure. He is a beggar who is sick and looking for the Rich Man to help him out. In Mary and Martha, they honestly believe in Jesus. There is really no question on who Jesus-God is. In the story about The Rich Man and Lazarus, Abraham shares by the end of the story they both knew who God was too. Consequently, with that the story has some of the same meanings. So, stay with me here. Now Martha and The Rich Man have a lot in common. Yes, even though Martha was working for the Lord. The Rich Man was working to. However, as you see the difference is Martha was so wanting to work hard to show Jesus- God how much she loved him. The Rich man felt he did not need to work for the Lord because he had all of the riches the world could give him. Now both are very wrong. It is not about being BUSY for The Lord or being to BUSY having everything that you need that you forget who created you. At some point as ye will see do not be too busy that you miss out on your creator. In the story of Mary and Martha God just wanted them to spend time with him learning all about the Goodness of his father and why he was there. In the story of The Rich Man and Lazarus God wanted the Rich Man to see what was more important the essence of helping others that are less fortunate then you. Also seeing how another person could teach you about God too. So, my question to you today is who are you? Yes, for you may have heard about who God-Jesus is? However, have you really just taken out the time to sit with him? Open up your word (The Bible) and honestly read it.
Do not try to just do works for him. God wants so much more from you and for you. God is looking for us to do all of it. Did you know he is a jealous God? He wants to give you all of him. Yes, and the only way we can truly get all from him. Is by giving ourselves up to him. This can be done by seeking him out fully. Spending time with him at his feet. Stop trying to be busy for the Lord. If you are really going to do the Lords work first see how he helped his children. Really see that God-Jesus Honestly listened to. (THE NEEDY, THE POOR, And THE BLIND). Jesus does not want you to pick and choose those brothers and sisters who can really do for themselves. GO find someone who really is needing your help. Like Lazarus -the beggar. Did you know it is weaved all throughout the bible (Gods Word) God and Jesus did not look to help the Rich and well off. He called on the sinners and people like tax collectors, fisherman, the common Man. Now as you can see in the story of The Rich Man and Lazarus. Lazarus -the beggar had a need for he was truly hurting in every way. There are many people in this world that are hurting and need help. But we do not see it because it will not give us the statis we think we want. However, be careful that is what happen to the Rich man. The Rich man did not care for the Beggar until it was too late. Then the Rich man knew his name and called him by it. Thinking he could be helped. Your statis here on earth may be big however, I pray as you see during this COVID time Life can be short. For you never know how or when you are going to leave this earth. So do not waste anymore time. Seek out Jesus the correct way. Sit with him like Mary did. Whether you sit in the boat or at his feet. Go spend time with him. You can not bring riches or titles to the gate of heaven. You can only bring yourself to him. He knows all. He knows if your heart is in it. He knows if you are just being busy or honestly helping others by doing his work the correct way (like Jesus). If you are not sure if you are correctly doing God’s work, then I say to you seek out the stories more in the Bible on who and what Jesus did and said. Pray and ask God to show himself to you in every way. Do not look to get anything back if you help someone. It is not about you at all. It is really about being more like Jesus. If you are also not a believer in Christ, I pray that you read the story of The Rich man and Lazarus. Please, do not wait and think like the Rich Man did that someone else will share Gods word with you before it is too late. Read this story. And see the truth in God’s word. Again, as this COVID-19 issue is real do not let this time go by. For we are truly not promised tomorrow.
If you do not see, we are truly not promised Tomorrow. I pray you turn on your TV and watch the News for the Death toll. Then turn it off and go Find your BIBLE and sit with JESUS! Do not turn the channel and watch another TV show. Sit with the Lord. The bible has better stories then any TV show could ever have and will give you better returns for doing so. All the Riches of the world will get you no were. I do not care what the Kardashians are doing. They will not help you during your hard times of life or save you from the depths of going to Hell. THE bible will help you for sure. Sorry, if that last statement was a hard one. Nevertheless, the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus is a hard one and is true too. Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. So, I pray you get that before it is too late. I say all that I say in LOVE! I do not want you to mis out on having everlasting life with The Lord of Lord and The King of Kings! I love you all that much. Also know you cannot take the TV to heaven with you, but you can store up Gods word in your soul. And that is the only thing you are going to take to Heaven. YEP, YOUR SOUL! While you are here on earth know that No Matter what is going on in your life weather you are Rich or Poor God is your all. He should be your source and resource. Truly seek him out Today. I pray you learn to be more like Mary for she gets it! If you are like Lazarus that is ok too for, he totally knew who the Lord was, and God cared for him when the world did not! Today, learn from all of them and seek out to be more like Jesus. Ask God to help you in his word (The Bible) in all that you do in your life.
I pray today that anyone that is reading this takes the time to get to know you. I pray they just do not read this blog and push it aside. For I do not want them to miss out on living for ever in your home. We truly are on earth for a short time. If this COVID-19 taught me anything. It is that you absolutely love us. That you are really trying to get our attention. I hope we get it soon before it is too late. For many people have died. I just pray they knew who you were. Because, if they did not there is no turning back like the rich Man. I pray that the story, of The Rich Man and Lazarus and the story of Martha and Mary helps someone today to make sure they are getting or being right with you. Seeking you out for all that you are. That they do not just think by doing works it will get them in to heaven. That they need to learn all they can just like Mary wanted to. She was so willing to just sit with you. That is my prayer today that more people sit with you. Weather it is at your feet or in the boat with you. That they understand what Faith really is.
I pray this in your son’s name. In Jesus Christ AMEN!
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).
This morning I am not sure how to put my words on this virtual page. God has had a message in my heart for days but, I have not been able to figure out how to say what he has on my heart. To you all. I feel like this message maybe hard for most of you to understand. Yes, I believe this because everyone wants to believe that they are doing what God wants them to do. As we look for answers from God. I even need to search my heart and soul to make sure it aligns up with what God wants me to do in my life. So, if todays message hits home hard. Please, forgive me in advance However, you know what they say the truth hurts sometimes. I say what I say in love. Now, let me start with what I have been learning in the Book of Mark. What Mark is writing comes from Peters life. Meaning that Peter told Mark his story and Mark wrote it for the Bible. What I see that Mark wants us to learn from his writing is that. It is more important to Follow Jesus and learn from Jesus teaching. The miracles and signs are not the big picture here in this book. Yes, Jesus did do a lot of miracles and signs however, if you really read there are two things Jesus did after each miracle or sign. The first thing after doing a miracle or sign is, he told that person not to share where or how that miracle or sign happen or who did it. The next thing he would do is leave the place where he did the miracle or sign. It was like he knew that the people would not keep quiet about the miracle or sign he had done. Jesus knew that miracles and signs were important. He knew he needed to do them too. However, what the Father sent him to do was more important then that. Yes, so as you are looking for a miracle today and God wants to give you that miracle or sign. Please, dig in his word (Gods word the bible). Follow Jesus teachings. There is a much greater picture in the Bible then just what signs and miracles you read about. I have to share even today as God wants us to follow his son and be more like him (Jesus). I do believe we are getting the miracle and signs we need. We are just not doing what we. YES! WHAT WE NEED TO DO! Please, stop all that you are asking for with in your prayers. Just come to the Father asking him to help you follow Jesus better. Believe me I am no better than you Nevertheless, I really feel today more than ever God is telling, ALL of US! Learn from my son. I (GOD) have given you all you need to live forever. Just stop and seek me out. I do believe COVID-19 is getting the best of us because, we are still not listening to God. Now, a lot of us are just busying doing nothing being busy not even really meting our brothers and sisters needs. Now we are just being busy working not hearing from God at all. So, I ask you to take my small word and Go sit with your bible read it. Please. Join a bible study but look for one that teaches Gods word. One that wants to seek out Gods word. Do not get in another Bible study where you are reading someone else’s book to learn what God is saying to you. and Gods word. Find one that teaches chapter by chapter and verse by verse. Do not be scared to seek God out with just his word. God will show up for you and let you know what he has for your life and heart. I am trying to start one today. However, God has brought me to a great bible app that is letting me just sit with him. It is the word chapter by chapter and verse by verse.
You may want to download this app for yourself. In the last few weeks, it has opened my eyes to so much. It is called “THROUGH THE WORD” (TTW). This app is totally free. The Pastor is from California. His name is Pastor Chris, I find that he is just doing that being a teacher of the word. HE lets you know up front He is not God and that you need to read the word for yourself. I find that I love reading the word with Pastor Chris because as he teaches what he sees he leaves a lot out for you to see what God is sharing with you. Now. As I say he leaves a lot out I do not mean he is not reading all of the word. He gives you a path and lets you seek out the Lords word to you. For what God wants to show you in your life. I do want to share as well as my journey has gotten harder, I have sought out some Pastors to help me on my journey of reading the word. I do have a great pastor in my state at my church. nevertheless, he is too busy at times to hear from me. Therefore, as I do want to share God will bring you who you need. Never worship man even a man of God. No, that God really brings the people you need when he (God) is ready too. God has brought me another Pastor who has stepped up to the plate to help me dig in Gods word. I feel you should check him out as well. His name is Willie Mays. He is the pastor at a great church in California. Pastor Willie Mays at Corona Church of Christ. You can find him online. He has been a Pastor since 1993. Him and his wife absolutely love the Lord. Pastor Willie’s Wife, Terry Mays is blessed to have a beautiful voice for the Lord. Terry needs no musical instrument to help her bring the Lords song to life. She has learned that God has blessed her with just the voice to sing his words of worship. I promise you if you check them out you will be totally blessed as God has blessed me. Pastor Willie is a blessing for as I have so many unanswered Bible questions He is just like pastor Chris a teacher never telling you his thoughts but, asking you what do you see the Lord is telling you in this passage. I am so blessed to know as I am seeking more from God and my journey is hard God is sharing good teachers of the word to me. I pray you check all of the resources I have shared with you to really help you hear from God. Jesus was brought into this world to teach us what God has for us. Not just the signs and Miracles we think we need. I maybe blind; however, I think we all are for we are just not seeing the miracles and signs. That God is showing us. That may just be because we are not seeking him out by his word. So, Please Go sit in the Boat with Jesus and follow him, learn from him before it is too late, I pray that you truly seek him out. Next blog I pray can be about The Rich Man and Lazarus. This story is in Luke. Please, come along side of me for that next blog it has been on my heart to share but, I am not totally sure what or how God wants me to bring it too you all. So again, keep me in your prayer for that story. 😊
Please, come along with me and pray! We all need some prayer at some point. Actually, we should always pray for others. Well, Today I want to share another person’s Blogpost. I ask you all to come along side of me and add this to your prayers. God has led me to this beautiful lady’s WordPress page. I know this family is a believer in Christ. Even if they were not please come and add them to your daily prayers. This Ladies story really touched my heart weeks ago. I have been following her for a little while now. If I can share the last few post have brought me to tears. Her husband’s (family) story is one of struggle for sure. So, as I have added comments to her page of prayers. Today, as I sit here reading her last post back to me. I just felt the Holy Spirit share with me share this blogpost-page with your followers and readers. Therefore, today I am asking you to not only pray for this Family. If you feel led follow her story. I know we do not know how God is going to answer our prayers. Of course, we all want the miracle of perfect health and maybe that will happen. nevertheless, I do believe when two or more gather in God’s name, mountains can be moved. Therefore, please if you do not mind take a minute more each day and pray for my new WordPress family member-friend, I know they would appreciate it. God does want us to be there for others so, I am reaching out for this family to reach the stars, the moon and most of all Heaven for prayer. Love is an amazing thing and prayer moves mountains. God does answer prayers so let’s be in prayer with this family for Gods best in their Miracle (whatever that is that Gods Will is).
I will start the prayer so let’s go into prayer.

Just know God is working no matter the struggle! 😊
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!
All bible versus come from NASB Bible GateWay Biblegateway.com
Today, I am going to post my study of Wisdom. I pray this helps you to understand. How to study and now start to pray for wisdom in your life. To understand the word of God.
If you would like to Get wisdom from God. Here is some instruction from Solomon. In Proverbs chapter 2versus 1
Please first read. Versus in chapter 2:1-9 again in Proverbs. Here it is in the NASB
The Pursuit of Wisdom Brings Security
2 My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within you, 2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; 3 For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; 4 If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; 5 Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 8 Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones. 9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course.
Now look at verse 5
5 Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God.
Fear and discover is not a bad thing here
Let me share the important word in these versus. Inversus 1-4 IF (FEAR) and versus 5-9 THEN (discovery)
The word IF shows we need to search fear out THEN we will discover. Gods Wisdom for our lives.
Now, let’s go back and look farther in the versus. For what IF is saying and Then what Then says
I have enlarged the important words that you need to look at. See below
As we look harder at what Solomon is teaching us here for us to get wisdom.
5 Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God.
The Pursuit of Wisdom Brings Security
2 My son, IF you will RECEIVE my words And TREASURE my commandments within you, 2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; 3 For IF you CRY for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; 4 IF you SEEK her as silver And SEARCH for her as for hidden treasures; 5 THEN you will DISCERN the fear of the Lord And discover the KNOWLEDGE of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He stores up SOUND WISDOM for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, (PROTECTION ) 8 Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones. 9 THEN you will DISCERN righteousness and justice And equity and every good course.
Now at this point We can see IF WE SEARCH out WISDOM THEN WE CAN DISCOVER. What God has for you and me.
Read just the enlarged words to see the IF. Let’s look at verse 6
6 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Look at this, God is the giver of wisdom. Now this shows we just went from being a pursuer of the word to being a receiver of Gods Wisdom. Now we can tap in to some of the knowledge and understanding.
and Then. See how the IF we do that. Then we can have it (wisdom).
God will walk us through all of what he has for us, We just need to go deeper into studying his word.
I think this is so awesome! I pray as I have done this for myself. It helps you to understand Gods word better.
AT this time, I am learning how to understand and study Gods word more than just read it so I pray as I do for myself that this helps you to start to learn how to really see the truths that God has for you.
Let’s Go into prayer to God for more wisdom on his word and learning. How to study the bible.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today I come boldly to your Throne. To ask you to help me to grow in your word. Please, as I may not be perfect on this teaching today. I pray that you bring me the wisdom to grow in your word. I pray that as I did this little study and I do see how to start to study your words. You help me to get better in studying your word and helping me to teach my readers as well. For if I am not correct on something please help me to really get the wisdom from you. As well, as I post on my blog, I can share the correct way to understand your word. I do know it is just not for us to throw around bible verses. That your word has more meaning and food for our soul. I pray as I get ready for my Blessed study you really show me the wisdom. To be a good teacher of your word. That you will shine in all that I do for you. I pray that I can go deeper in your word then I ever had. I know at this time I long to really know you better then ever. I pray my readers want that for themselves as well. I just do not want to be a hear of your word. I want to be a doer of it as well. Thank you for all of the wisdom you will provide me and my readers as we go farther in your word. Seeking out your truths for our lives.
I pray this gives wisdom to others that read this today.
In Jesus Name Amen!
Please understand I am new at this type of study so if you see something not correct. I would like your comment. However, please be kind! For we can teach each other. 😊
Do you feel broken Today? Well, if you are feeling like nothing is going right today. You are not alone as this year comes to the last few months. There are a lot of people feeling just like you. I know at times no one wants to hear your said stories. Your broken spirit is feeling like where can I go to get this worked out. First even if you are feeling like in this broken status you are thinking that life is not working out. Let me share with you I heard this quote in the last few weeks and I love it. “Crayons break but even a broken crayon still works.” I will add to this quote the yellow, orange, pink and red still shine as pretty and just as bright when you use them. The color is not broken. They just have been used and their structure is different. That as I think about broken crayons, you still can use them They will create a beautiful masterpiece. The creator of this beautiful masterpiece is working This picture out for. His glory. The creator of this design did not give up on the broken crayon, the creator just knows that he or she needs to work with in the broken pieces. So, as yes, we are talking about broken crayons. I want you to think about your broken spirit today. It is not really broken the structure is simply different. Your creator knows he created you as a beautiful masterpiece. He is working all of your broken ends out for his Glory to show in your life. Just keep on believing, having faith, trust, and know. He created you for more then you could ever imagine. Take out your crayons today and if you have any that are broken. Create a bright, beautiful, masterpiece. Stick it on your refrigerator. Yes, as you do this. Every time you open that refrigerator door. Smile brightly for as your picture has made a beautiful masterpiece. You need to know God is orchestrating. Your broken spirit to shine bright. You need to remember he created a beautiful masterpiece when you were in your mother’s womb. You do not know the end of your story, but he does so even the broken parts in your life are being worked out for his Glory and even through him getting the Glory for it. Your broken spirit will be better for it. Just hold on for This broken spirit will come out better off in the end. Nothing that God has ever created is lost and void. If you honestly believe in him and lean on him for all. Let him be everything for you. I know he will take your broken spirit and tears and shine bright over you. For you will win at the end of your life for he is giving you everlasting life. With him were there is not one hurting in his home.
Dear heavenly Father,
Today I come boldly to your throne. I know we may feel so broken at times. For we do not know how things are going to unfold in our life. there are days especially when we just do not see the beautiful masterpiece you made in us. As we go through 2020 being shaken up by you. Your children know that nothing you do will go void. That you’re the creator of it all. so, while we may have broken spirits at times. We know you will work it out for us and for your glory. I just ask at this time as we are feeling so broken place a hedge of protection over us. Please do not let anyone steal our joy. I also pray that this world crisis ends soon, That the non-believer learns about you before it is too late. I do think you are giving us a big warning to seek you out. So, I pray whoever is on the edge of not believing that they see YOU ARE REAL AND TRUE to your word.
I love you and Thank You! For all of the broken crayons in my life. even more so because I know you created the beautiful Masterpiece in us for your glory.
In Jesus name Amen!
Bible verses for your broken crayons in your life 😊
Sorry! I do not like to post 2 blogs in a day but, I need some prayer on this one! Please also make sure you do not miss the other post I did today! For it will bring you the answer to a winning Lotto ticket. 😊
Yesterday, as I was in my prayer time with the lord. I was thinking. What can I, study to get better in God’s word? I thought, “let me see how many times the word blessed is in the bible?” So, the next thing I did was open My Bible Gateway APP. I typed in the search box the word “BLESSED.” Did you know it is in the Bible 290 times? That it is in the Old and New Testament. Then I started to think, I am going to pray over my thoughts. Hey maybe I should blog about my study on this topic. Also, I think I want to get a group of Ladies to come together and study with me.
Now, I have never led a Bible study before however, I am trying to get better with my walk with the lord as I have told you about my walk with the lord. I am blogging this with you all for I would like you all to pray for me, as I start this journey. I am going to ask a few people that I do know to see if they would like to join in with me. I do feel like I do need some prayer over this for I have never led a Bible study. I think I will see how to start a YouTube channel. To share with others. I also know God is doing a greater thing in my life. As I have shared with you all. I am trying to write a book giving God the glory for my life story. I am not sure where God is taking me currently. However, I just figured that I would put this out on my blog and just start this part of my journey in this manner. I think at this point the only way to learn and grow is to keep seeking what the Lord is doing in my life. Please, come along side me and pray for Gods wisdom on this. Weather it is to Start a YouTube channel or/and A Bible Study. I know he is working in my life for sure. I am proud to say I am a child of his and I love that I want to come together with other believers in seeking out his will for my life. As I do pray others want to seek out what god is doing in their life for his glory too.
I do know when I was home with my dad. I had a lot of time where God showed up during my dad’s last few days here on earth. This may sound crazy to some of you. Nevertheless, God (the holey spirit) was working on me as he is always doing. So, at this time I think this is the next step in my journey for and with the lord. Never in a million years did I think I would be doing something like this. However, I do know when you are walking with the Lord it may be strange to you and me but not to the Lord. Please join me in prayer to seek out if this is something God really is pressing on my heart to do. I thank you for your prayers in advance.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I come boldly to you at your feet to seek your wisdom on this topic. I love that I have a walk with you. For I am not sure how to go about all of this. Nevertheless, I do believe that you put this in my heart. I pray that this can only be done if it is your will for me to do. I pray that you send me the correct people in my path to join me on this journey. I pray that as my readers read this blog each week, they see me glorify you. That they know I cannot do anything with out you in my life. I pray that they come to love you as much as I do. If not more. I pray if anyone of my readers are hurting today you give them the strength. They need to get through it. That they know we are all your children and you do not do for one. That you do for all. Everyone’s walk is different nevertheless, the master plan in their walk is for them to be more like your son. I pray that they know you are walking along side of them in all their life. That they know you are never going to leave them. That this world may be hard on them and for them. Even still, through all of what they are going through you are walking along with them. That you give them all they need each day to move closer to you.
