Good morning! Today as always is an amazing blessing day. God is always working in the mist of it all. All I can say is my life is hard my struggles are real. But God comes right on time. This song by TobyMac really sets the tone for the life that I have and how I wait on God and he always comes right on time. As I talk listen to my phone today my word press message. All I wanna share is this amazing song because it means so much in my life today. My words may stumble my life may be hard I’m not perfect at all. But I know my God comes right on time. He comes right on time for you to. Do not give up on God because he has not given up on you.

Just know that God is for you and not against you. He does really come right on time. For I do not know what tomorrow will bring. That’s not my concern. As God says in his world do not worry about tomorrow for today has enough trouble of its own. I will hold onto all the verses I can know that my God is real and true. I will share it with the world forever and always. How God works in the mist of it all. How Jesus is right there alongside of us walking crying sharing our hearts and sorrows. God knows what he’s doing he created us. Always remember that. He just knows it and all I can do is share it with the world. No matter what the church is done or people have done. Always remember God is not really the church it’s the people that come together in the sanctuary who are. Let’s work together to be a better church. To bring more souls to Christ.

I will pray for everyone and all. If I am no better than you. God has created all of us. We need to work together. To bring glory for his name and for him. I love my Lord so much. No matter what I go through. He’s always been there. He always comes right on time. I pray you listen to this song. And dance along with me. For God is amazing. As I will not fix this text into my phone for my word press page. I just wanted to share off-the-cuff my thoughts my thank you’s to the Lord. Loving this song completely thank you TobyMac for writing it. I know he’ll never understand what his song is done for me. But God does and I hope you listen to the words and really get it in your spirit. God is coming right on time. Again

My Next Steps In my struggles!

Hello to All,

Hope you all are doing well; I have been struggling with my next blog post to you all. Nevertheless, as I have been in prayer to get my next one up. The one thing I have learned in my short time of blogging. Is that God has to lead me in every step of writing each week. I have been speaking with my Pastor friend Willie on my next topic. We hit on a subject that has been brewing in my heart and mind for a while. Which was doing a podcast-YouTube channel. I have asked you all at one point to pray for me in doing this next step. Thank you if you have added me to your prayers for this or anything. I am always grateful for the prayers. I can share with you all about a week or two ago. I got a text message from Willie’s wife Terri. About how to set up a podcast. She, Terri out of the blue heard a message and sent it my way. I listened to the podcast and then told her. That I did not think I was ready to do this next step. Of course, we text back and forth on my thoughts and hers for me. Terri shared with me that she has heard me speak and thought it would be a great next step. I told Terri that I did not feel ready to do a podcast. Hence, God is amazing. For as I have been struggling with my next blog post. It has given me time to play with the idea of setting one up. God always shows up for you when you say no not yet or never going to happen.

I do have another friend who has helped me work on my blog posts and my writing journey. She has encouraged me for a while to get one up and running., We always shared that I had to stay in prayer about it. Well, tonight I can share with you all. That I have set one up. Now there is not a podcast episode up yet. I have just launched it and put up a trailer that shares what the podcast will be about. Also, that it is coming soon. I am almost sure that I will have my first podcast episode up in the next week or earlier. So, I pray if you are a follower you check it out and maybe enjoy it just as much if not more. And want to subscribe to it. I pray that it shows people that God is not only my source, but he is my resource. That no matter your struggles God will get you through them all. As I know I have been on this journey to start writing my life story. I think that God wants me to get this next plat form going. To show his glory in my life no matter what is going on in my struggles. I know that I may not have shared with you all. that is, that I would love to be a motivational speaker. So maybe this is just Gods plan to get this going for his again glory.  It has been a very ruff few years for me. Even though, I may be sad at times. I always try to put on a smile and pull out a positive from my struggles of life. I do know there is a God who is doing a greater work in and through us all. No matter the struggles of our life.

We all will have hard times and bad days but, if you just keep moving forward God will bring you through it all. In his Glorious timing. He created us in his image and knows all the outcomes of life for us. SO, if I can share one thing and nothing else. Hang in there hang on for we are not promised tomorrow. Hence, anything can change in a blink of an eye and God has the last say. So, if I have learned anything is, he has got it he is in control.  I will let him take the wheel of life and trust in him for all.

Thank you again for reading and following my blog if you are a follower Thank you for that, I pray my words help you as much as they help me too.  That you do see God is my all no matter my struggles and that I am just a real person like you!

So, let me now share the link for you all to go and hear my trailer.  Oh, and now you will be able to put a voice to my words! I pray it is better than you imagined. 😊

Today’s Ramble However, A Blessed One!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Dear heavenly Father,

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

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

In Jesus Christ Amen!

Answered Prayers

So, today I want to ask you. What are you praying about? What do you want God to Help you with? Did you know, that God says in his word (The BIBLE) Matthew 21:22 – And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. And then in Matthew 7:7 – Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Here is another great verse that says around the same, John16:24 – hereto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. Now God also tells us not to waver in our faith in asking which here is a verse that lets you know that James 1:6-8 – But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavered is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed…..   

Now if you have never asked him God for anything at this point. You may be saying Wow! I need to pray and ask him for X-Y-whatever your X –Y might be. Or you may be saying… Well, I am asking and I do not see him answering. Maybe this is not true. Well, First I want to show you a verse where he tells you that he cannot lie. That verse is in, Numbers 23:19 (ESV) 19 God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

As I have just given you versus that say to us that we can ask and he will do and cannot lie. There is a little bit more to all of this. So hold on. Keep reading for Yes he is going to answer yes he does not lie However, we need to read on in the Bible. Read ALL of the verse. ALL around it as well. Please do not take on one verse. Do not take one verse out of context. For as I tell you this truth. He will still answer you in everything. But here is the catch of his word and who he God is.

One it will be to glorify him, two you only have these promises if you are a believer in his son. Three he hears ALL prayers. He wants the best for ALL really I tell you even if you are not a believer in his son whether you want to believe it or not he created ALL of us. However he gives us free will. Which lets us make a choice to have FAITH, HOPE, TRUST and LOVE for his son. ALL it takes is a mustard seed of FAITH to have him answer your prayers. Now you may pray for him to answer in one way but you do not really know the future of that prayer. So trust in him if you’re thinking that he did not answer the way you asked. I am hear to share He answered in the best way for you. We only can see one thing that is the now and the hurt of today. But, he sees the future of it ALL.

For his ways are not our ways.

I also need you to know he is not a door mat either.

You just cannot think well I did not get this or that. So No way why should I read his word (the bible), believe in his son (Jesus Christ.

Who do you, REALLY THINK YOU ARE?

Did you create the world? Did you put your child on the cross to die for the worlds sins?

Your answers are NO and NO but, his are yes and yes to that and in prayer as well!

As my pastors son said it so well at his mother’s celebration of life!  

Here is what Rev. Jonathan Evans told us as he was struggling with God.  He (Jonathan) was telling him (God)! Why did you not answer me or our church WE were praying and our family believed in your son (Jesus Christ).  We even tell the world about you and your son?

God said to him and he is telling it to us as well.

So let me share what he got back from God!

There was always two answers to your prayers, YES and YES!

She was either going to be healed or she was going to be healed!

She was either going to live or she was going to live!

She was going to be with family or she was going to be with family

She was either going to be well taken care of or she was going to be well taken care of!

Then God said to him THE VICTORY BELONGS TO NO ONE BUT ME!!!!!!

I gave MY SON up for ALL of YOU TO live!!!

And can honestly say GOD is telling YOU! THAT AS WELL!

So with all of that all I can say in prayer today is

Dear heavenly father,

Yes you are so correct the VICTORY IS ALL YOURS! Thank you for putting your son on the cross for me.  Thank you for however you answer my prayers. I could never do what you have done for me for I am just a sinner saved by your son. I have the Gift of GRACE because, you gave it to me! Thank you my lord. If you do nothing else for me I am so thankful to you for all that you have already done. Again YES! The Victory Belongs to Jesus!

In Jesus name I pray AMEN!

Did You Really Stop To Think About This Verse And Your life?

Mathew 6; 25-26 says “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

 Today let’s really think about this verse. First of all, we take for granted alot. Some may even count out the words in the bible but I want you to have some food for thought. I will do so in just this bible verse.

Let’s say for a minute that the bible is only a book that was written thousands of years ago and it is just words on a page.  Now I will only think or let you have a minute of your time on that false statement. One minute because I do know that the promises of the bible are true. I will not let the devil in and so, let’s go on my thoughts on why you need to believe in the bible and Jesus being your lord and savior. Imagine this. This will not be to complex so, do not worry.

Imagine a tree outside maybe a giant oak tree in full fall bloom.  The wind is blowing so ever lightly. Now up in that tree you find a nest with say maybe 2 birds. A mother bird and a baby bird.  The mother bird is just going about her business gathering up stuff for her baby bird.  She does not tell her baby bird ok now I am going to go to the store and find food for us. She does not say how I need to find a job to take care of all of our needs.  The mother bird is not telling her baby bird well this world is filled with good and evil.  They are just a part of nature. Do not think of this image as a cartoon that Disney made. Just look outside and see what nature is bringing to the forefront.   they have no bird cell phone to gossip on, no credit cards or liquid cash, grocery stores, no bird corporate jobs to go to. They cannot even speak to a human to say hey I am homeless me and my baby bird are going to go hungry can you give us a job, money, shelter   food, or can I use your phone to call a friend so we do not die or lose everything we have.  Now let say it even gets worse for the 2 birds that are in the tree that we have imagined. The wind kicks up and the clouds in the sky have gotten dark. Let’s even throw in some great thunder and lightning.  Ok we get to go inside our homes or maybe in this image we knew the weather was going to get bad so we had an umbrella. We even saw the morning news that told us there was a 65% of really bad thunder storms. Birds do not get the local TV. Wait they can’t even go to there local store and buy a 60 inch TV.  Maybe, you are getting my point. But let’s keep on this track.  Now, the birds feel the weather change and the mother bird does not say ok baby bird now start packing all of our stuff.  Need to worry they just fly off in to another location.  In this storm in that tree their home is destroyed and all of the matter that was collected is rained on, there is No bird cell phones to call daddy bird at work. They just keep on moving and GOD our heavenly father that created all (even the birds in the air) just keeps them moving with nature. WOW!  Now they did not skip a beat the birds just moved on and all was, and is still right in their world.

 Here is another kicker about these birds. NO one shares how good the Lord is to them. That Jesus is even there for them. However, He says in this verse He takes care of them. Therefore, again I say

WOW!!  Trust in his word.

So, why can we not learn from them and trust the word of God? It is funny all we have to do is look outside and see that the word of God. Is true and faithful but, for some reason we want to make it more complexed.

So again look at that bible verse. With a different set of eyes.

Mathew 6; 25-26, look at the top of this page to see it again.

He has you . No worries. Trust in his words. That old book written thousands of years ago still stands TODAY.

 

So, all I ask of you is today.  Just find the bible in your home. I am sure you may have one. Maybe it is on that nice book shelf that you bought years ago. To put all of your books, collectables on, or now just a place where all of your unused items go. So, I ask you to find it dust it off and crack it open.  Start reading it.  Or if you do not have a bible. You can even take your fancy overpriced cell phone and find a great Bible app. Pick a time each day. Spend time in the Word of god.  I promise you whatever you are going through there is a story for you to fall on. If you have never even opened this book. Do not know where to go to. I will pray with you at that minute to ask god to help you find the right promises and words to read. To watch you grow in your faith. Do not question just read and keep on reading. Yes, this book will fully fill your life. I also promise, no one can ever do this like the word of god. I can promise you that. It is the only promise that I can make to you. GOD IS REAL AND TRUE. He promises that to you.  That will start a great journey for a better life an eternal one with the lord. You cannot get one better than that. I also ask you if you do not have a good bible based church that you find one to help you spiritually grow in the lord.  Now, I also have to let you know the promises of god are all yours but, there is only one condition. This condition is not one that is hard or that I have made up. It is in the bible as well. If you are not a believer of Jesus Christ.   The promises are there for you but, you will not be able to reach them

PLEASE!!!! Do not let that stop you from reading his word for I tell you the truth. As you diligently read a little each day and ask God to help you know him. All types of doors will fly open for you. He will help you get to know his  word and his Son.   I am sure buy the time you have spent some time with him. You will want to be a believer in Jesus Christ. If you are not sure how to do this. I will help you in doing so as well. 

Ok here is how to become a follower of Jesus Christ. Let’s pray.

Read this aloud.

Dear heavenly father,

I do believe that your son Jesus Christ has died on the cross for me. He did so to take away my sins. I ask you today to bring him in to my heart and make him my lord and savior.  Thank you for putting him on the cross to take away my sins and give me grace each day through him.

In Jesus Name I pray Amen!

WELCOME!!!!! To the Family, You are now a new person in Christ.

You may ask again, what do I now do. Well, find a good local church, a bible based one. Take a few mins each day and grow with Jesus by praying to him and asking him to help you grow in him with in his word. This is one thing you will never regret doing.  You can start with in your bible reading chapters 1 and 2 of Ephesians. Read this book in the New Testament. Look as you read who you are in him, as a child of god.   As a new creation in Christ. Now, that yu are saved. The only other thing that I can share with you to do is get the book by Dr. Tony Evans. It is called Life Essentials. This book is a good one it will help you grow in your walk with the lord.  He shows you, Dr. Evans the truths of being a child of god.  He shows you how spiritual growth works. I can promise reading, studying the bible, praying to him each day, and finding a local church will help you in your walk with Jesus Christ.

Dear heavenly Father,

Thank you! For your words to us via the bible. Giving us, easy inside to how you care for us. Showing us how we can trust you and not worry about what is going on with us. By seeking you in your words. I thank you also for anyone that just prayed the prayer to believe in you. I know you will show them the way.  Thank you, for letting us have grace by your son.  Today, I pray that all that have read this blog. Your words not mine show them the way to you and the truth you have for them. How just Mathew 6:25-26 shows how simple your words are about what you will do for us. Thank you for that. Also thank you for John3:16 that tells us what salvation is. That we will have everlasting life with believing in your son.  

So, with all of this.  I give Jesus Christ all the praise and glory  for what you have done for us.

In Jesus name AMEN!
