A Study of Wisdom! How to Get Wisdom From God!

Hello to All of My Readers,

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

My son, if you will receive my words
And treasure my commandments within you,
Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
Incline your heart to understanding;
For if you cry for discernment,
Lift your voice for understanding;
If you seek her as silver
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will discern the fear of the Lord
And discover the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
Guarding the paths of justice,
And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
Then you will discern righteousness and justice
And equity and every good course.

Now look at verse 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.

Then you will discern the fear of the Lord
And discover the knowledge of God.

NASB

The Pursuit of Wisdom Brings Security

My son, IF you will RECEIVE my words
And TREASURE my commandments within you,
Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
Incline your heart to understanding;
For IF you CRY for discernment,
Lift your voice for understanding;
IF you SEEK her as silver
And SEARCH for her as for hidden treasures;
THEN you will DISCERN the fear of the Lord
And discover the KNOWLEDGE of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He stores up SOUND WISDOM for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, (PROTECTION )
Guarding the paths of justice,
And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
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

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. 😊

Broken Crayons Still Work and Shine Beautifully!

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 😊

A Growth In My Walk with The Lord! ( On A New Journey)

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.

In Jesus Name amen!

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.Luke 1:45-Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”John 14:14-16 – You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit 15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—Psalm 145:13 –Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.

salm 106:12-Then they believed his promises and sang his praise.2 Corinthians 1:20- For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 7:1-Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

Philippians 4:19-And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.2 Peter 1:4-Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

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! 😊

In Jesus Name AMEN!

A Hedge Of Protection!

Today I just want to pray for you if you are hurting in life. Even if you are not. I pray that you just received this prayer to help you through whatever you are going through.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am coming to you to ask for a hedge of protection over my readers. I know as we are your children there are times that we are so much needing to hear from you. In this world there are times where we feel like you are so far from us. However, I have always heard that is when you are working on our behalf more. Therefore, as I bring all my readers to your feet. I ask you to show

up for them the way they need to hear from you. That you do nolet the devil get in their head for anything. That they know you are working all their lives to glorify you. That they will see the victory you have for them when they know to just lean on you and not the world. That they know you are there source and resource for all. That even when they feel so alone. That they know you are always right there with them. That you will never leave them or for sake them. That you have them in the palm of your hand. There is no one that can come and take them out of your hand. No matter what may come into their thought’s. You have the best for them no matter what the world is saying. They need to know you are truly in there corner. I thank you for all that you are doing even when we cannot see it. I know you know just when to show up for us. I pray that this covid ends soon for the world needs to be shaken but, the true believer knows you are in control of this world. That you have the best for your children. That your protection is on us no matter what the world is facing. That we keep on giving you the glory no matter how hard it is during this time. I Know that we think we know all the answers to our life issues. However, you again are working a better plan out for us.  Then we could ever think. I ask you to put a hand over anyone that is struggling today. For I know I am. Therefore, I figured I would lift them up to you today too. Please, be our comforter during these times. Thank you! lord, for always hearing our prayers. Also, thank you! For always doing a greater work in us, and through us. I know all our struggles may not be the same. Still, that you are working them out for us and for our glory to you. I would not have it any other way. Please, just comfort us when we just feel like no one is caring about us. That we see you working in every way.

I pray this in Jesus name AMEN!

There Is Someone, Who Is Wanting to Hear All You Have To Say! (never to tired for you)

Did you know you are never alone? I am not sure what you are going through today.  You may have a full home, right now and still feel so alone. Well, I want to share with you that even if you do have a full home and feel this way. I want to open your eyes to let you know God is always there with you.  If your husband is too busy to take a minute to hear your days issues. Your kids have too much to tell you and they do not want to listen to your parenting them. Your wife is just going on and on about what the kids are doing and not letting you get a little word in. Just know there is always someone there with you that is waiting with open arms it is your Lord and savior. Let’s start off and let me share that he is never too busy for you. Did you know he wants to hear everything you have to say? He is open to hear from you 24-7. He will never tell you wait Mary, Joe, and Sara is before you. He will never tell you wait the phone is ringing and I need to take this other call it is more important than you are. He will never tell you he is mad at you. He will always just be there wherever you are. Yes! No matter where you are. You can be in the shower, in the kitchen, in the car, in the playroom, in the store, outside walking or jogging, at work, in bed. I think you get the point he is everywhere. Did you know he will even not judge you? He wants the best for you and wants to give you the best as well. Even if you think he is not answering your prayers. I am here to share that he is. Not because I say so. It is because he promises all his children. He has made plans for you that are better than you could ever imagine. He knows why you are where you are in life. He does want you to have your heart’s desire. However, before he gives you your heart’s desire. He needs to make sure you can really handle it.

No matter what this world tells you. Just know God is not like anyone else. He is a way maker. A promise keeper. He loves you no matter what is going on. He will never leave you or for sake you. He is really working behind the scenes to make sure you are ok. Yes, life is or will never be perfect. However, just lean on him and watch him work. Just keep on moving forward. Speaking with him. I know this life is hard at times but, I do know my God is there for you and me.

So, today I pray that you really start talking with him. No, it does not matter if you have put him on the back burner of life for a while. Today I just want to ask you to open that door and start talking to him. About everything no matter what it is. If no one wants to hear you just know he is waiting to hear from you.  Yes, just start talking and let him love on you. I know it may feel funny at first to just speak out and not think he is listening but, know he is.  He is waiting for you to talk to him.

Dear heavenly Father,

Today, I come to you asking you to make sure that my readers know that you really are there for them. Not because I say so but because you are so alive in their life. I pray they learn to speak to you no matter the time of day. No matter what is going on in their life. That they learn that you really are a great listener. That you are wanting to hear from them. That you do want to give them their hearts desire. That they not only speak to you in prayer but, then they learn to seek you out by reading your word. I pray this for them today. For I do know you are at the best dad they could ever have. Thank you, Father, for all you do for your children. Thank you for loving us even when the world is so hard out there. I pray that my readers talk to you today. That they seek you out before they go to anyone else. That they just seek out all that you have for them.

I love you and I thank you for all of your mercy and grace.

In Jesus name Amen!

Bible verses to lean on:Psalms 73:23-24, Hebrews 13:6,2, Corinthians 1:3-4, Philippians 4:11-3, 1, Matthew 5:11-12, John 16:24, 1 Corinthians 10:13, Zephaniah  3:17, Romans 8:38-39

$20,000.00 and A Pretend Cup of Coffee!

Good Morning! It is one AM in Dallas, Texas. God is working while you all are sleeping however, I have been a woken to get on this computer and blog to you all. Not sure why yet. But I will just go with it Now, I need to finish making my pumpkin latte. I am going to start this blog however, even though you would never know I will stop for a minute to go get my coffee of choice this morning. I am not sure even why I am sharing with you that I am making a cup of coffee, this morning. For most mornings I have always sat here behind my computer screen and drank while typing my blog.

OH! I will be right back I just heard the latte machine beep to let me know it is done and ready for me to enjoy. I like it hot so I will be right back. Holed please…

Ok I am back, and God is good while I was in the kitchen, I Got it. Yes! OMG! I did get my yummy pumpkin latte and I took my first sip and it sure is yummier than I could have dreamed up. I want you to imagine you have one too!

Nevertheless, that is not what God showed me while I was going to get my latte. I got the message for you all. Yep! God does it again! This blog is going to be how I went on a job interview that I did not want and how I told God I was going to just have a pretend cup of coffee with these people. I would just go and have some fun on this day.

Let me set the stage for you all. For I want you all to know I did need a job. I was out of work for about 9 months and around $20,000.00 in det. The internship had ended at The Army and Air Force Exchange. This internship was the way God brought me to Texas. The Government had a major shut down. I could not even get my SSA disability check back in pay to me. Therefore, I was living on credit cards. Hence, God could care less about the government money I could get from working or from my SSA disability check. For I did need money to live on nevertheless, I must share, NEVER PUT MONEY BEFORE YOUR FAITHFULNESS OF THE LORD. Yes, I said that, and I honestly believe in God being my source and resource. God does care all about you and by letting him be your source and resource. He will make the way for you in everything. Isaiah41:13 That is why I have said God could care less on where I got my money. for when he opens a door no one can shut it the same is true for when God shuts a door no one can open it.

As I said I was out of work for 9 months and now $20,000.00 in det. Now, as it was a Saturday morning about 2 weeks before this interview and a pretend cup of coffee. I was so stressed out. I was not eating much anymore I did as I said take it to the Lord Never the less, I Got an Idea on this day to call my little brother. I knew I could also call my Dad and he would let me come back to their home. However, my sister and her family had just moved in with them and yes as my parents do have a large home. I just knew that was not where I wanted to go. My brother also lived in a part of Florida, where transportation would be readily available to someone like me. I called my brother on this Saturday morning I shared my issues with him. He said sis do not worry about anything I got your back. I will come and get you. First, do you have enough money to get you through the last 2 months of your rent? I said, YES! However, I was doing this by credit cards. He then said Teresa, just wait for your lease on that apartment to run out. So, you do not incur bad debt. I agreed Then my brother Thomas said  “I want you not to worry I will come and get you but, while you are waiting for the two months to end just go and have fun in Texas.” Just go see as much as you can before you leave that state. So, I agreed as well. I hung up the phone with my brother Then, I went in to prayer with my lord saying. Thank you god there is my answer. As I do know this story now! I can share while I was saying ok God, I got my answer for this with you using my brother. God was up in the sky laughing not in a bad way. I should have lean on Jeremiah 29:11 that day. So, let me again go back. After I did pray thanking god for my what I thought was so strongly my answer from God. I now went on a great run enjoying every bit of that run. I was not worried anymore. God had used my brother to help me this day with my problem.  Now it was not even a week later. I was at the pool at my apartment building enjoying the pool and the Texas sun. Trying to keep my Florida tan in place.  I was just laying on a pool chair. My cell phone rang. I of course answered it.

It was a lady from the SSA Disability Office. Now at first, I thought it was about my SSA disability check. I did not say anything at first about my check to her for I just listened This lady at the time was so friendly and caring. Was I wrong about that again a story for another day?

Ok she was calling me. for about a job interview with the SSA disability office. now about 6 months or a little less than that before this call I had emailed a Lady that worked in the SSA HR Regional Office. I shared with this lady in HR just in an email my resume and a little about my work. Now, when I had emailed this lady in HR. I had no clue that she saved my resume for her email back to me was just one on stating, here is how you look for a job on or with the government. She just sends me to the government website.  Now, when I had gotten this call from the lady that wanted to interview me. I was not surprised for I about 4 weeks before this lady called about this job. I had gotten a call from a lady for a job interview in a field office in another part of Texas. However, this lady was sad not to be able to interview me for I did not live close to that office. Now, I could have moved to this area. For I only had a lease for maybe at that time for 3 months however, the transportation was not readily available in that area. this lady told me that she was sad that she would not have the honor to interview me for my resume and background was amazing.  nevertheless, she would let HR know I could not work in that area of Texas.  That they needed to put me back in the pool for a job somewhere closer.

Well, I then found that number to this HR lady and we now had a talk about where I could work. That it had to be in Dallas County. She did know that I had a disability.

Now, let’s get back to that call at the pool.  the lady on the call had started to tell me about this job that she wanted to interview me for. I just listened. After she spoke about the job, I told her that I just left a job about 9months earlier and it was an internship that the AAFE. For that job only lasted for 6 months . Nevertheless, you may be thinking why you are telling her that. Well, she stated in this call that this job was only for a year. I did not want to take a job for a year I needed a permanent one. That I could not take a chance on not having a job in a year. I was having trouble getting my SSA disability back.  I could not see myself going back and forth with the SSA office on my check. meaning in pay then out of pay status. it was too hard to deal with this issue.

 She stated, “maybe it could be longer but, at this time it was for just one year.” I was not wanting to start a job that would just last a year plus God gave me the answer to what I was doing. Remember I got my answer from my brother and God. LOL, I must laugh while I am sharing with you all. for God was too, at that time. So, we talked for a while about all types of SSA stuff. Now, she pleated with me Oh please just come in for an interview I do like you. I would like to meet you. Therefore, I did tell her ok. let me go back to my apartment, for I was at the pool so I could get all her information about this interview. The time, the address, and the date of this interview. I shared that I would go visit her and the office however, I was really moving back home at this time. For this job did not give me the stability I needed.

Now, for the record let me share I never wanted to be on SSA disability. All my life I was diligently working to get off it. Hence, I had times where I needed it for my disability had made it harder to find work. So, I am thankful that the government has this in place for people that need it Still, it was not and will never be the way I want to make money. I can work, I want to work, my ability to work is high and I am very smart. This world is just a hard place for people with disabilities. Therefore, I did agree to meet with her and her staff.

Now I had gotten all the information and had hung up the phone.  I then started speaking with my God. Saying Ok God, I know the plan it is to go to my brothers’ home. Why would I take a job for a year? So, God I am going to go however, God I am just going to go have a fun time and have a pretend cup of coffee with them.

Well that morning came. As I was getting ready, I was speaking with God saying, ” Ok God, make this day a fun one with these people it is just a cup of coffee day.”

At this point, I now am on my way to this interview. My ride had me there about 45 minutes earlier then I wanted to be however, that was fine with me. I never like to be late for anything. For I would rather be early then late to anything. So, I got there and greeted by a few guards at the door. For this was not surprising to me an all government offices have security.  At some of them you are not welcome in less someone from that office has invited you there.  I told the security, that I did have a meeting with a staff member. They looked on a list that they had. It did confirm it. Then, security called the area that I had a meeting to let them know I was there. Next, the guard brought me to where the meeting was at.

Now, I was in front of this lady’s office. She was at her desk. She stood up and shook my hand.  As I was early, before I could say anything about being early. She smiled and said, I am so glad you are45 minutes early. I just hung up with my boss. I now have a meeting. that would have not let me be able to interview you for the whole time. She then asked me if we could start the meeting in 10 minutes.” I then stated, “sure, I am hear, for you. So, that is fine with me.

She did say because of this there was not going to be a full staff to be in my interview there was supposed to be four in on this panel. I shared, it was ok with me if it was ok with her staff and anyone that needed to know about this process. I also want to share currently I was thinking I do not really care for I am just going to have a pretend cup of coffee with these people. it was just for fun.  I knew Gods Plan (was I so wrong about Gods plan)

Now, she takes me to a large room and tells me she will be back in a minute or two. She needed to get the other staff member that was going to be in the interview and her folder to be able to get this interview going. I just smiled and said, “you go right ahead and do whatever you need to I am just going to sit here and wait for you all.” ” I am good.”  I was not nervous or worried at all.  Remember, I was not looking to get this job. Now I have to say the other person that came into the room for the interview was a nicely built guy he had a great smile. He totally is a good man of God for sure. now we started the interview they asked question after question. At some  point in this interview I shared that I was a believer in Jesus Christ and before we went any farther I needed them to know if I could not speak about my lord and savior it was not going to work for me. Now, I still knew I was not taking this job for god showed me another plan. However, I did want to be kind and meet this lady as she wanted to meet me to.  Ok so we are just having a great time. God is just having me answer all these questions with no problem. this interview was so different than the one I had with The Army and Air force. I could not believe it myself. I did let them share all about this job. Well. low and be hold the lady that invited me to this interview started telling me how. This government job had a lot of potential in the way of overtime and it gave overtime with time and a half. Now the overtime could be as much as 10 to 15 hours a week Now, I did think to myself wait did I hear her correctly really Our president at this time was President Obama. I just heard him on the TV saying we are in a deficit. The government had just opened back up from a shut down. Now, really this lady is saying Overtime where is the government getting this money from. Nevertheless, it was a showstopper

ok now let me tell you my questions started coming from a different limelight. I started asking questions like wait how long is this job for? How long until I could start overtime if I took this job? now I had asked a lot more questions about this over time but, let me share. What was now going on in my head with my Lord and savior.

 Yes, now just know you may think this is crazy however, I know my god. For the most part. I said this because as I am going to share. the change in my questions and thoughts on what happen at that table. Remember I thought I knew the plans God had for me at the time of this interview. I was so wrong however let me continue ok so. Suddenly as I was asking my loaded questions about overtime and time and a half. God hit me in the back of my head saying you got this Teresa. Now I did not mean God saying I got it as I was better than anyone else. Here were my thoughts as these two people were talking to me.

I knew I was $20,000.00 in det. I know I could work this overtime for if it were offered to me, I had no family here so I could work all that they had to offer. I really was living with in my means very much with not having a job for 9 months. My apartment had changed once I had lost that internship at the AAFE. Meaning I moved into a small one. I could get out of debt in or try to get out of debt for this one year of a job. I said in my head Yes God I hear you. So, I did know that I was a hard worker and that I also was a great bill payer meaning I could get out of this debt. Here is where I am different from others.

I did and do believe that God would be the one to get me out of this debt. I do know the Bible says That God will supply all my needs Mathew 6:25. That I am supposed to be a lender and not a borrower .Luke 6:34-35 I have gotten out of debt before. So, I know my God was working this out. He knew when I started using credit cards that I was a good steward of my money. That I could be in trusted with using credit cards.

I just knew for at this time, that I had a $20,000.00 debt. Now these two people are telling me that I have a job for a year and I can be offered this much overtime so, now I am saying ok God I do not really know your plan and that is ok lord. I really should not have put you in a box for your plans really are not my plans. Yes, I did really know your way is not my way. I have been on this earth for about 43 years before this interview, so God let me stop and lets God Go! i should have realy held on to the verse Isaiah41:13.

Ok as I was talking to these people about the job, they had no idea what was going on in my head with God. So, after I asked all my loaded questions, and they would just not really understand why a new person would ask all these questions in an interview. For the lady that was in this interview did say years later Teresa’s Interview was not like any other interview I had ever done. Because my questions had changed for, I wanted to know other things about this job. God had hit me on the back of my head. In my head God was shouting tell them you will take it and trust in me.

So, as this story is long, and I do need to wrap it up. I did get the job and in less than one-year I was debt free. Yes, God did it again!  there is much more of this story however, I will share more another day.

Please know that God is always working no matter what life brings your way. This is just one of many stories about how God has been working in my life. He is or does want to work it out for you as well. Please, just learn to trust in him and not the world. If he is doing this for me. I know his plans for you are great too. He does promise to take care of his children.

Please come back to hear more stories of how God is working in my life for his Glory! Just know I am praying for you always! He is truly the ANSWER TO ALL OF YOUR LIFE ISSUES!

I also currently am writing a book about my life and how God is the Glory of it all.  My journey of life is truly a leap of faith with God in the pilot seat. I pray that you all will keep me in prayer as I take this next leap of faith with my book. I pray that my stories teach you that there is truly a Heavenly Father that loves and wants to do for you. That you learn to take a leap of faith and follow him. (Jesus Christ)

Take A Dance with The Lord!

God knows what you can handle. Today I want to share a story of having faith. I took a dance with the Lord and I let him lead about 10 years ago. I was still living in South Florida, living in my condo. It was late at night, let me set the stage for you all.

I was in my master bedroom sleeping. I was fast a sleep in my nice warm bed. I had woken up just like anyone else would in the late-night hours. Just to use the powder room. Well, I moved the covers off me. Turned to sit up putting my feet on the floor to go to my powder room. I was so sleepy that night. I wanted to make my trip to the restroom fast. I was enjoying my night’s sleep. Well, as I am sharing, I put my feet on the floor. The next thing I knew my feet were in water. About an inch deep. I said, “No, this is a bad dream.” I put my hand on the floor to see that Yes it was everywhere. I walked over to my bathroom for it was close to my bed. I thought what is leaking. Well there was water an inch deep in the bathroom as well. I checked everywhere (under the sink, in the shower, around the toilet). There were no leaks anywhere. I was now in a panic. I could not figure out where the water was coming from. I did not even know where to start to clean it up. I just was feeling overwhelmed. I just knew that the water was just coming from somewhere. I walked out into my hallway where the second bathroom was. Thank God as I left the bedroom. There was water but not as high as in my bedroom. I checked my laundry area. No water leaks there. No water leak in the second bathroom. I was just stumped. Where was this water coming from? I was just now in tears. I just knew I was back in college and had had little to no money. I did not even have anyone to really call.  Then I went to the kitchen to get away from the water. Then, I thought ok. I do have a neighbor next to me. I was not friendly at this point with my neighbor for she was old and had a lot of issues. That made her unfriendly however, I knew I needed to see if she had water in her condo. Well, I walked outside going to her door. Why yes, she did there was a mop and bucket outside her door. Even though I knew how she was. I still knocked on her door. I did know she may not answer the door. Yet, I tried anyways. She did not come to the door. I was again not surprised at this. She was old and lived alone as well. I did share with her years ago. When we were friends. I did not care how late it was for her never to answer the door. So, I did know just to go back in too my home. Try to clean it up and wait until later to see if I could get in touch with her son and daughter in law. To see if they knew what the issue was. I was friends with her daughter in law and son. So, I did know that I could call them and see if they had any idea. What happen.

Well, at this point I was still not sure how I was going to take care of what the issue was with all the water on the floor. I could not mop it up the water was on carpet. I could take care of the bathroom but, not the bedroom or the hallway. I did call a friend about a block away from me even though it was late. They did not answer as well.  All I did know is what am I going to do. No money, no way to clean up the carpet. How would I do this alone.

Well, then it hit me all at once. Teresa, what are you doing? You know the answer to this. I just stopped crying and leaned against a wall in my living room.  I looked up to the ceiling. I started off saying! Oh My God, YES! Lord!

Dear heavenly Father, what am I doing? You know I may not know the answer to how I am going to get this worked on. Nevertheless, I have seen you work so many times before in my life. So, Father currently, I am going to stop my crying. Father let’s go. Yes, father let’s dance. I will let you take the lead. I know you have done so much for me in the past. As you know father, I am in school right now because of you fully paid for. I know I am your child. I know you will not leave me or forsake me. I know I am not sure how to do this. Yet! Let’s dance God you take the lead I will follow. Thank you, God I know you will take care of this better than I can, that you will do this for me. In Jesus name Amen!   

Well, after I prayed to my Lord and savior. I just grabbed some over sized towels knowing this would not really help the water issue. I laid them down to grab up some of the water.

Then I just felt like there was nothing else I could do at this time. I prayed! I called the best person that I could. That would always take my call. No matter, the time. I had a peace that sir passed all understanding. I need all of you to know. It was going to be alright. For I did know and feel this in my heart too. So, with knowing this God just helped me to just fall back to sleep until around 8am. When I did awaken, I was well rested that was a blessing to start off with. Next, I knew I needed to get my homeowners insurance company on the phone, to let them know what had happen. So, I did just that. When I got an agent on the phone.

I shared with the agent what the issue was. The agent told me that I had a deductible that I had to meet before they would help me. Still, the agent shared that she was sure that with what I was sharing. The deductible would not cover my damage and that they would cover the rest. She would now set up a visit for me. With an insurance adjuster to come out and see what the damage was going to be. She told me while I waited for the adjuster to come out to get a carpet company or someone to come out with some fans to help me with the water on my floor to dry it up. She was so nice. She even helped me find a company to help me do this. I just knew that I was dancing with my Lord and he was leading me in all the correct directions.

 At this point I was not worried about it all. I had seen God do amazing things in my life in the past, so I was just letting God again, take the lead on this dance. I found out that my neighbor was the reason for my leak. Yet! In South Florida it is a no-fault state. So, I had to just have my insurance company deal with my water issues. I did call my neighbors daughter in law and son for they would really share what did happen.  My dear friends did care about what happened to me as well. Nevertheless, I just had a great conversation saying I know this will be ok. That God would take care of me and my neighbor their Mom.

If I can share if you have any issue in your life, Please take my lead and have a dance with your God. Let him lead in all issues in life. The dance will turn out better then you would ever imagine. I have to say I did know this before I took this lead letting God lead the dance. Hence, I needed a reminder that night to do it again. It always works to take a dance with your Lord and savior. I currently, no matter the issues. I have learned to just lean on him for all.

Let’s go back to the story and how God bless me First let me share as well. He gave me that home so, why would he not take care of this problem. Well. When the agent (insurance adjuster) finally got to my home. Looked at the damage. He wrote it up and I had a check in my hands for more money then I could have thought. The damage had done so much that it could take care of a new paint job for my condo, all new flooring through out my home. Even money to take care of the wet walls that were between me and my neighbor. I could even pay back the deductible with the money they gave me to fix my home up.

Yes! God is a loving and caring God! He walked me through it all. I found all the people that I needed to help me as well. Get my home back to a home again,

So, as I share this story with you 10 years later. I do know my struggles are hard currently. This is just a reminder for me to share with the world that God will get you through anything. If he did it for me. He will surely do it for you. If he did it before he will do it again, your struggle may be a harder one than mine. However, all struggles are hard when you are going through them. You may think my struggles are harder than your struggles. But I am here to let you know your struggles are just as hard as mine. Yes, you are just as important as I am. God will not do for one of his children and not do for another. Do not think you are not just as important as anyone else. He knows where you are in life and just how to get you through it. So, if I can share one more thing with you. Yes! Even through this COVID! Go into your closet and get your prettiest dress or most handsome dance outfit. Put on those dance shoes. Say a prayer to God. Telling him you are ready to take that dance and let him lead you through it all. I promise because of who he is. The dance will be the best dance ever. All will go better then ever. The dance will be so elegant, peaceful, joyful, com, and better than you could have dreamed if you took control. Let him lead all your dances in life. The dance will be just at the right time. With just the correct turns, dips, spins, flips, hops, jumps and just the correctly ending bow. It will just be the greatest one ever. Then just get your dance clothes ready for the next dance for that one will be better than the last one. Remember, God never promises an easy life while we are here on earth. So, lets enjoy every dance with him. Letting him lead in each one. Also, remember to give him the Glory for the dance as well.

Versus you can lean on during your dance can be….

Romans (8 :28), James (1:2-6), Proverbs (3:5-6), Romans (15:13), Psalms (9:9-10)

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for letting me have a dance with you in every storm of life. I am so proud to let you lead in everyone of my dances with you. I know as I follow your lead in the dances of life by you controlling them all. Your steps will be the best ones I could ever take. I do not like my struggles but, I do love the dances I have with my father. So again, Thank you for every one of them. I pray my readers will let you dance with them and let you lead in there dance as well. You are the best dancer of it all. So, I am proud to share my dance with the world for your glory. I do love and honor you my lord.

In Jesus name Amen!

Fighting For Us!

Ok, it is about 1:30 am in the morning. I slept little tonight nevertheless; I want to share again God is on fire in my soul. I did not think I would do this tonight. Get on my blog and type to you all however, I just must share with you all. You never know when God is going to have you help one of his children. I just was calling to get my iPhone fixed. The new upgrade. It always has kinks when a software update is given. More so for me because of my special needs (blindness). Anyways it was just like any other time I call in that is what I thought would be. Well, it was not God had me speak about him and his son. I will not share the story that I got into with the fine gentlemen. For that is private nevertheless, I just want to share. Other things about this call. I am now praying for his family and they will be ok. It is not because I say they will be ok. It is because God says that. I want to share that I prayed for his family right after I hung up with this fine gentleman. I felt the spirit so much I asked my Echo device to play some Anthony Evans for if you do not know. He is one of my favorite singers. Well, the first song that came on is called HE is fighting for us! At this time, I am playing it over and over So, as you read this you may want to play this song too. I know you all may not know this. I do not find it to be odd that I have a conversation with anyone that I meet about God. I just have learned to not put my God behind any bush. I never push the subject. There is always something that leads me to speak about the goodness of God. I always start in to a I am not trying to push my faith on you, or I am not sure where your faith is with God. However, can I share something. I truly little get a NO thanks! Well, tonight was just one of those days. At this time, I have come on here to just let anyone know that God is a Good God. Just like Anthony is singing he is fighting for us. Know this world is just that a hard and cruel one. Yes, God created it. Yes, if you do believe in him you are a child of his. However, he says in his word. We are not promised an easy life here on earth. He if you look in the Bible pretty much read anywhere in all the books of the bible; they are having troubles. Yet, he shows if we just trust in him God and his son Jesus. Are trials maybe hard however Joy comes at the end. I know sometimes our trials are so hard and we want joy Now. Did you know you should have that Joy in your trouble as well? Yes! I know some of you may be saying that is too hard. I do hear you. There are days I do say, Really God how can I find Joy today. I as I write this to you, I am writing this to myself. I can only say hold on to the words of Jesus Christ and God. I do not know what you are going through at this time but what I do know is God is fighting for us, please, understand you may say you need answers to all of your fighting questions as I do too. Well, I have the answer for it all. Yes! I found it for all of us. I know this is not a surprise for some of us. I have the play book for life. Yes! You do too! I just need you to take 5 minutes a day and find out how this life is going to be. I know it is hard to understand at times. Still, start today, I cannot promise an easier life but, I can promise that you will have all the promises you need to fall on when times are hard. Really you need to go to it all the time. It is your bible it has all the answers you will ever need. I do not know why God has you in the period of life he has you currently but, I do no if you just spend a little time with him. In prayer and reading his word. Just give 5 minutes of your 24-hour day. I will not tell you that life will be all roses. Hence, what I will share is you will have a joy and peace that you have never had before. that 5 minutes that you spend with Him will turn into time that you will not want to stop. Yes, at first that 5 minutes may be the hardest thing you ever do. Nevertheless, I do believe if you start there and really talk to him God – Jesus Christ. He will have your life change again; your struggles may not get easier because we are in a fallen world. Yet, God will show up for you every time. I do know for me he is my source and my resource. Yes! My life is not easy at all. however, I do know it is a battle that I will keep on fighting. For I do know again, as Anthony Evans is singing God is fighting for us. God does not back down. We just need to see that he is in control and if you are a believer in Jesus Christ. There is a greater thing that we need to look for and that is Gods Grace. That with his Grace we have a lifetime of goodness. He knows we will struggle here on earth for, he does let the devil Rome here. Yet, you need to know it is not the worldly things that you need it is the long and everlasting life you want to make sure is secure. If you follow his will and asking for his will in life, I do believe your journey will be more bearable on earth, Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for your fighting spirit for us. I know that you love all your children. Yes! You will never back down for us. I do know we need to seek you out more that we do. So, today as I pray to you and write this blog. I hope that all my readers seek your word out for it is exactly right there. The bible is the answer to all with our unending conversation to you in prayer. I thank you that you will give unending peace to your children no matter what they are going through. Tonight, I want to pray for my new friend in Christ. I do know he does know you even before I spoke to him. I just believe tonight you needed a new friend to come into his life to get some comfort for his family. I pray for his whole family wife and children that they are tonight, and every night know that your joy comes in the morning and that they get the peace that only you can give. That life is always the choice they hole on to. For as I do know when we lose a loved one it is harder for the ones that are here. Again, I know that you will give the peace that they need from my words to your ears. Thank you for the love that you give all your children. I do know as I am praying our love ones are with you as well. Just sending down love our way. Life is just something we just must be thankful for and know your grace will get us through it all. I also want to pray for anyone that is readding this and struggling. That they pick up their bible so they can see all your goodness and promises for there life. I love you! God, can you do me a favor as well can you give a hug to all the children and parents today up there for us. Since, we cannot anymore. I know this may sound silly God. Not to you but to some people that pray to you. That I ask you that today but as you know my heavenly Father, I do speak to you just like you are my friend here on earth. Thank you for letting me be your daughter and have that relationship with you. I also pray as people read my talk with you. They see they can talk to you about anything all day long. I thank you in advance for the peace you are going or are giving to my readers. Today and always. In Jesus name Amen!

Good Morning to all my readers. It is 3am here in Texas. I am not sure really this morning, why I started it with singing Hallelujah. There is a story behind Hallelujah and a cup of rice. They are not two stories that are mutually exclusive. However, this morning I started as I told you all I woke up singing Hallelujah. It was just not an ok sing for a minute. I have kept it up the whole time I was making breakfast and until I sat down with my food and started typing to you all today. I even tried to stop saying this is crazy! Why God am I singing this. Now, also why I was singing and cooking breakfast. I was reminded to get that cup of rice and put it out.

Yes! Yes! I know let me stop for a minute with my story of my singing and the cup of rice for, I am sure someone is thinking. What did you make for breakfast? So here it is. I made a vanilla latte, an omelet with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese (Mexican). To a company that omelet and latte not one but two hash browns like McDonalds sells. 

Why Yes! My friend Kim I know “You may be thinking 2 hash browns?” Yes! Yes 2! 😊

Now as I am typing this blog. I am also trying to eat my breakfast. I would love to just eat but, when I stop to eat and not type my voice goes back to singing. Crazy Right!

So, I will just eat and type. For the Holy Spirit must have something. I need to let you all know. Also, I will say. I did think I wrote 2 times this week. I do not want to write to much. Yet, again I need to listen to my soul. When I can write, and it comes out easy on the page I know it is not me! God is using me to share my story with you.

 I am sure some of you may not understand this. Let me let you in on a little secret. I do not get it either. I have days I want to share with you all. Nevertheless, it just does not come out. So, I just have to say, “No not today.” Then there are days like this week. Where I can not stop my fingers from typing to you all.

Ok let’s go back to my stories. I will start with the Cup of Rice. Since this story took place first. Now if you have been following my blog. You do know I did tell you all a few months ago. After I found out my dad was getting worse, I started calling home everyday to speak with him. Now, let me share again as I did. We only really talked about good things. Nothing about bills. Plans of his death (meaning why or where he is going to be laid out). No talk about who is getting what or why he did not make a will. We did speak about my mother and she did hear all the conversations. I was on speaker the whole time. He made it noticeably clear to me our first day of conversation. He had other children that would come over and that was most of their talks. He does love them still; He did not want to speak about that stuff. He said, “My mother knew his wishes and for that leave it alone.” I did share with him That is totally fine. For I do have a lot to share with him. Things that are good in my life. I told him and he agree that we would talk about the goodness of the Lord.

 Which, I must say I did love always talking to my Dad about the Lord. I would no matter how old I was or where I lived. I would always call him, to ask him. Where and what does it say in the Bible about this or that. Now, as I would do that years and years ago. My dad would always share with me. “Please, Teresa read the bible for yourself.” Next, I would say, “Yes Daddy, but you know it better. So, let me just ask you.”  Next, he would say, “Yes, but God will show up for you.” I would just say, “Yes Daddy just share with me.” Again, I would just repeat myself. Now he would always do so. No, he would not give me his thoughts sometimes on what he was sharing. He would just share what the word said. I would love that. For I always thought Yes, I got my answer from my earthly dad. I would also state to my Dad it was too hard to read. For I am not good with reading or listening to Gods word. He would just share again. That he really learned to read by reading the bible. Yes, he did not finish school Not sure what grade he did go to. Though, He did later in years get his GED. He loved to read and learn. My Dad was very smart. He took a lot of home-schooling courses. He did go to trade school as well. He was a tool and die maker for over 40 years of his life.

Now, to share we had a great time each day on the phone. The first day after we got the let’s say rules out of the way. I just then started sharing with him. Ok Daddy! Let me tell you what I am learning in my braille classes. Let me share what my blog is looking like. Let me share what the Lord put on my heart today. We would at this point have a great time just talking about all the goodness of the Lord has or is doing. He did speak about his pain at this time but, we would just keep focusing on the Lord. it was a great time even though. He was in so much pain,

 , I in the last let’s say 5 years. Have been Reading and digging in the Bible myself. Yes, you have read that correctly. My dad was so happy to hear my different thoughts on what I was learning myself. He did know I was starting to dig in the Bible 5 years ago. He knew I was writing a blog that I really started in 2016. But pulled down for until 2019. He was so proud of me. However, I can say not until we started speaking within that month. He did really see a great change in me within my walk with the Lord. let me share, the only thing that was different within this month. That was I did every phone call pray out loud with my parents. Yes, I would not end any call without praying. I even called back one day just to pray for I got a call and needed to hang up without praying. but, once he said, “Hey Teresa, we did not pray yesterday.” I laughed and say yes daddy I know. I thought that too. Yesterday. So, let’s not forget. 😊  well, will share with you as I prayed, I just prayed. Nevertheless, my Dad started to cry this one day. I would pray first and then he would go next. My mother would finish us off in prayer. Well, let me share we all were in tears many days however this first day of prayer was so amazing to me. So, I prayed first. Then my Dad started to pray, and he was crying to God saying “Lord Thank You! Thank You! For my answered prayer to you about my daughter. Yes, Lord she is reading her bible. Yes, Lord she is going to do great things for you I Thank You for letting me see her start on her journey with you. I thank you for my answer prayer about her, I am so proud to know she is going to keep up that blog, write a story for you being the glory, I am proud to know she is seeking you out even more today then ever. I thank you for I may not see all that you are going to have her do for you. yet, I am thankful to you today for answering my prayer of her to read and get closer to you. I know she is going to glorify you the rests of her days. Thank you again Lord for letting me see this answered prayer, you are so amazing lord. 😊 Well, I have to say I was surprised. I did know my daddy would say always to me Please just read his (Gods) words. But I did not realize he was taking it to the Lord in prayer. This should not have surprised me but, it did. Now, we both were crying for sure to God in thanksgiving. I have to say it really showed me prayer really works. I did know this; however, this was just such a beautiful day. That I will never forget. For I do see the Lord working in my Bible life. I have always shared my story with people glorifying god over myself in my stories to people. Yet, I would always tell people that I was not versed in where this or that was to help them more. That I would call my dad and get the answer for them. Now currently in the last few years as I have read my Bible. I did still call my daddy nevertheless; I would not have the same talks. They would be different. Now they were about “wow! Dad did you see- here or here. What God did for this on or that one!” So, I did know I was doing it. However, I did not know my daddy was praying for me too. That was great for me to hear and share with you. Now, let me share with you all that. You may be praying for something. God does hear you. However, let me share you will get answers to your prayers. Yet, they just may be answered in a different way. Yes! What I mean by this. God will answer all prayers I do believe. But, he does it in his way and his will. Yes, I pray for all of you that are waiting on an answered Prayer. You just keep on praying whatever it is for. Just add a little different spin on that prayer. God if this prayer, does not align up with your will. Please show me the better plan for that prayer as well. Let’s let God give his will for all your prayers. I do know and believe that his ways are not our ways. He God will answer your prayers better then you could ever imagine. You may lose a loved one or you may not get this or that. However, let me just share. Do not be mad about the change in your prayers. For I will share with you. God knows all. What I mean if he answered you sometimes in the way you wanted. He God knows the outcome of that before you do. So, as we pray. We do not see that. So, take all of everything you are going through to him. Again, just add to your prayers.  God let your way and will be done. Yes, this is hard to do hence, I will share you will be better off for it. I do not think I could have said this years ago. Yet, today I see so much more that God has protected me from. Even if I am struggling, as you all know I am. God is working it out for his glory, and I do believe he knows better than me. Ok I have gone off my story for sure. I am not sure why.

But I will go with it (the story). I now need to change the topic of this writing today. I will I am sure God will have me write about the Cup of rice and Hallelujah song another day.

Currently as I am writing to you all. I have seen God change my writing. During the middle of my story telling. Then later I get a message from someone saying, WOW, Teresa Thanks for this. It is an answered prayer. So, I have learned when my fingers do not stop, and I get a word – story to just go with it.  Yes, so we will just have to wait on the story of A Cup of Rice and A Sing Hallelujah story.

I hope and pray if you needed these words, you know that God has blessed you through my blog.

That you, always know it is not really me. It is God working through me. So, please, just sit still and pray a thank you to him first. Because, if you email me or comment to me. I will do just that for you too. I do know You are Welcome as well from me. I am just blessed to be the vessel that he used to give you this word.

Dear heavenly Father,

I come boldly to you today for I do not know who this will bless. However, it is not always for me to know. I just know and have been learning to just write when you say write. Currently as you know I somedays struggle with you about what to write. I do know to just sit here and let my fingers do the work. That you will bring all of what I say to someone that needs it. I know you know what is best so I will just keep on writing for you. I pray that anyone that is reading this is blessed by my words for you. Thank you in advance for anyone that needed this today. I thank you for my earthly Dad’s answered prayers always. Knowing that you are the one we need to go to. Even if we think we know what we need. That you show up and give us. Exactly what is your will. That your will is the right thing for us. Even when we do not see it at first. I must even go farther and say Thank you for when we do see the light to that prayer. That we think did not get answered. You had something better planned. So, thank you for Not always answering our prayers the way we want. Even if today someone is reading this and does not get it. I pray in the days and weeks of there life they can look back and see. Your handy work was just what they needed. We love you and pray that we stay true to honor you all the days of our lives.

In Jesus name AMEN!

Hey! Let me leave you with my new quote “Having faith in the Lord is more powerful Than wishing on a star!”

I challenge you to try it! Just know all you need is a mustard seed of faith. A mustard seed is exceedingly small. If you know anything about seeds. That seed will grow exceptionally large.
