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. 😊

Even Death Did not Get The Victory of The storm of life!

When you feel like life has turned you down. When you feel you made a mistake? When you think you are too old to change the troubles of your life. When you feel there is no answer in site for your hardships of life. I want you to know God-Jesus has not given up on you. When the world fails you because, they do not see your way. If you think God does not hear you. Just hang on. He is working in the mist of it all. He showed up for Joseph. It took joseph 20 years. He stayed faithful. However, that is not the story that I want to share with you today. The stories I want to show you today are two where it really looked like there was no coming back from anything. YES! ANYTHING. Death was the answer. The world believed that it was over. As we know the story of Jesus on the cross. It is not that story today. For these two people were not powerful in anyway. They were common people for their times.

Everyone in the bible thought it was over for these two people. If God fixed it for them. I know he will not be late for your glory story. Just remember to give him the glory for your story.

Now, there are two stories in the bible. The first one is of Lazarus Death. The second one is of Jairus daughter. I am glad there are two stories in the bible. So, that I can really make my point here. I say this because if you want to challenge my thoughts here. I pray you see just the facts and not your unbelief. Also, you see when we believe in Jesus. He has the control to change our life. God is Able. To do more than we could ever imagine. Ephesians (3:20-21)

Jesus will come right on time! Even death will show you that God is Able! He is never late!

The death of Lazarus. Three of Jesus closes friends were Mary, Martha, and their brother Lazarus. Oddly, when Jesus was told Lazarus was sick, Jesus stayed two more days where he was. When he left, Jesus said clearly Lazarus had died. Now in this story Mary has the unbelief for sure.

 When Mary came to where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said to him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” As you see Mary believed that because of life issues (death) it was too late. That Jesus could not turn this around.

Even though he showed up for them. That it could not be changed. Her brother’s death. Martha also had something to say about him being late. Now as the story goes.

 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the dead man’s sister, said to him, “Lord, by now there will be a stench; he has been dead for four days.” There you see she has little faith on this issue being changed.  Now let’s keep on in the story.

Raising his eyes to heaven, he prayed aloud to his Father. Then he commanded Lazarus to come out. The man who had been dead walked out, wrapped in burial cloths. 

Now let’s look at the story of Jairus daughter.

When Jesus was in Capernaum, Jairus, a leader in the synagogue, begged him to heal his 12-year-old daughter because she was dying. On the way, a messenger said not to bother because the girl had died. Again, we see unbelief.

Yes, I know at this time you may be saying. This is not the same he brought back the dead. But it is.

I am attempting to show you here. In these stories it was the end of life for these two people. And Jesus worked it out. He was not late even though death had come for them. Now if you read on there were a lot more people who did not believe Jesus could bring her back to life.

Yet, the story goes on to show us not to be afraid, have belief and faith.

Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; only believe, and your daughter will be healed.” Jesus took care of that life issue by his faith. So, all you need is a mustard seed of faith for him to move mountains in your life. Matthew (17:20)

Look even the world laughed. Now, Jesus arrived at the house to find mourners wailing outside. When he said she was not dead but sleeping, they laughed at him. Next Jesus went in, took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up.” Her spirit returned and she raised up to life again. Jesus ordered her parents, to feed her but then not to share what he did.

Again. Yes! It is death nevertheless; what I really hope you see here is it is never too late for Jesus to turn around your troubles. Just have faith, trust, hope, and belief in him. He will make your path straight. Proverbs (3:5-6)

Dear Heavenly Father,

I want to thank you for giving us your word (The Bible). The truth of life is written in it. For us to know it is not done until you say it is. That we, your children know the world is going to not give us the answer to our life issues. That you no matter what we are going through you will make a way for us. All we need to do is sit with you and follow your teaching. I thank you for giving us the Playbook for all we need in this crazy world. That it has stories like Joseph, Mary, Martha, and their brother Lazarus, Jairus Daughter, as well as versus to lean on when we just think life is getting too hard. That you show us even at death you can change any life story. Also, that it is for your glory. Thank you for giving us your sons life to correct our sinful nature. I pray that as we finish up this year, we do understand that you are the truth the light and the only way. That this nation gets on their knees to honor you. For you only want the best for your children and the world. I pray we all get that before it is too late. I love you and celebrate you each day of my life. Thank you always! That you are never too late to fix our storms of life. your son comes right on time for us.

In your son’s glorious name Jesus Christ AMEN!

Yesterday Was A Month! My Dad’s Gift To You!

Today, I am writing this for my Earthly dad. Who I miss and love so much! No matter what the road brought our way. Today I need to tell you all that my dad is in heaven with his earthly dad and his heavenly dad. I know I will see him again. My heavenly father promises me that. Today my dad is now in heaven for one month. I can say I am proud to say he is there. Nevertheless, I miss him so much. The tears are running down my face as I write this to you all today. He left this earth on August 13, 2020 around 3or 3:30am. No one is totally sure about the time for as I do hate this so much, but I need to share we all were sleeping in the house. When God finally took him home. No hospice nurse stayed. Yes, did I know his days were almost here. Yes! I did share what I saw with my sisters and brothers. On the 12th of August. I was sitting with him when his breath changed it was about 4:30pm that afternoon. I can remember it very clearly. I came out of my parent’s room. Saying what time is it. Someone answered my call. It is now 4:30pm. I walked back into my parent’s room. Thinking ok yes, the nurse Is coming soon. Should I share with my brothers and sisters what I now knew. I really fought with my soul only because my brother and sisters were not wanting to hear anything I was saying. I will never understand what happen with them.

I also always thought we were so close. Nevertheless, God was in my spirit saying, “share this with them.” I first looked at my dad saying my good-byes. Telling him that I did love him and thank you for sharing the Good News of God with me. Before I go on with what happen at that point. Let me share God was working on my heart. To show me a lot of what he was going to do after my dad did pass. He showed me that I needed to now let my Dad Go to heaven and let him finish his work on me and in me. He did God knew; how much I did still go to my earthly dad to be taught his word. I do believe now it is time for me to grow in the Lord with just him and myself. So, I did have a lot of time with my dad and god in the room with God just showing up and speaking with me.

I will tell this story another day. For now, let’s Go back to my dad’s breath changing and me saying Good -bye and that I will always love him. I said one more thing before I shared what I heard. I told my earthly dad I would make him proud that I was going to do whatever the lord wanted to do with me in honoring God and his son. That I did know that God has a plan for my life and at this point God showed it to me. Yes! I am still not totally sure, but I will seek God out for his will for my life. I do believe this is also why I need now more than ever to share my life story with the world.

Now, I left the room calling for my brother Thomas for my sister Gina was being so mean to me. I still do not understand why. I must share I Love all my brothers and sisters so very much. I would do anything for them. I was and am so proud of my sister Gina for standing up and helping my family when my dad needed so much help. However, I just know I feel like I was a threat to her. I could not help the way she did. For my failing sight would not let me. I could barely help myself in my parent’s home. Now let me share as I was telling them what I did hear they just pushed my words to the side. Telling me the nurse would be there soon. Which when God was letting me know in my spirit. I did say well why should I share this the nurse is going to be here soon and share this with them. I am sure. But as I said the spirit told me just tell them. So, I listened.  My sister Gina spoke up and she said, “YES! I Know what is happening” Yet, I really did know they did not.

Well, the nurse came. I decided to stay in my room. My brother Thomas came and told me the nurse was there. I told him Thanks, but I did not want to cause anymore issues. So, let the nurse tell them what I did know.

I could not believe my brother came back in the room to tell me the nurse was leaving. That my dad had less then 24 to 48 hours left. Now, I did know that my dad did have less then that time frame. What I could not believe is that the nurse was just leaving.

I told my brother what she is leaving, Really! He pretty much told me they could handle it. I said Ok if you all think so. Now I because I was not getting along with my sister Gina. I knew I just needed to stay in my room. I did share with my brother PLEASE! PLEASSE! Make sure someone sits with him for the rest of the day and night. I do not believe they took me seriously. I wanted so bad to go in my parent’s room and sit with him until his passing but at that time. I wanted his death to be so peaceful. I did not want to fight with my sister. So, I do believe that is why God had me say my good-byes. At that time. I could hear everyone in the house just not really being with my dad. They did not take it serious at all. I just started praying to God letting him know I wanted to help, but I did not want the strife in the home. I prayed to God that I just please wanted to hear from my mother. If I was correct. I would just listen for my mother to speak out. For if he did pass as I did have share, I would Go to be with her. I felt like I really needed to be by her side. Now, I must share my mom is sick with by-polar. I did see her change with in her by-polar during my dad’s death. I know that yes this is a hard time for anyone but, as I have learned by-polar is a hard sickness. She has never really been ok. She is not under doctor’s care correctly. So, I knew I just wanted to be there for her.

A day or two before my dad did pass. He did say to me. “You know your mother is not understanding this.” “She will have more trouble.” I could not believe my dad was barely speaking at this point. Yet why would he share this with me at this point. I do believe God shows up to let us know things at times. Help your mother. I promised I would. However, a day later or may be hours later that day. I had to go in the room and let my dad know. I could not promise anything to him. I saw a sight in my brothers and sisters that would not let me do so. He did not say anything at this point. I just know he turned his head and reached up for my hand. As I was crying and saying I was sorry for that. No words at all came from him by this time. Ok, so the night was long. I did sleep for the most part. I did wake up around 3 A.M. However, for that is not a surprise nor can I say I knew that he was taking his last breath at that time. For I get up a lot at 3am in the morning. I just started praying to God again. Falling back to sleep until I Yes! Yes! God did it He let me hear my mother’s cries. I jumped out of bed. Ran to her. My sister was on the phone with my older brother. I really wonder if they were going to let me know. However, it does not matter God let me hear my mother’s cry. I went over to her and Hugged her. Just letting her know God had him now He my dad is living for ever in heaven now. He my dad did love her, and that God would not let anything bad happen to her. She was just in tears. Yes, she did hear me however, she just could not believe he was gone. I just loved on her. Let me share I am not close to my mother at all. I have tried all my life. Her sickness never let us get close. Nevertheless, I will always love and want to help her.

After I made sure she was ok. I went back into my room. I just needed to be alone with God. Then I shared with all my friends and family This message via Text.

” Good morning to all! Today is August 13, and as we are all sad here on earth. I must share my father, Anthony Guffanti. Is now in heaven. He is with the Lord of lords, the king of kings. yes! He is peaceful. He is in heaven. He has no more pain. He is not struggling anymore. His race is finished. He’s been called back home to be with the Lord his real father our Heavenly King so, today I ask you to please smile and as you think along the day. Just smile because God has got him. He is now looking down at us saying, I can’t wait till my family and friends can be up here because WOW! It’s amazing.”

 I can only imagine that’s what he is saying because he’s read the Bible for so many years. He’s now seeing it all and when we will all be up there soon. so, as it is sad for the Guffanti family. I need all of you to know he’s in heaven with The Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. He’s up there with Jesus. Romans, (8:28), It’s true! Glorify God today for e is there. He is with us I hope this brings happiness and joy to all for, it is a sad day, but he is finally healed and Home with the Lord”

Well after I shared that message. I went back out to be with my family. Most of them were out on the patio. I opened the door to the patio. Saying to, “them I want to speak at my dad’s funeral.” I am, I was saying this to my youngest brother. I was thinking really God. I am going to do that “SPEAK”. I just knew I needed to listen to the Lord. For he was speaking to me so much within the days before. That I just needed to listen. So, my brother said, “that is ok.” However, I never got to speak at his funeral my brothers and sisters made it so hard for me to stay in Florida. Again, a story for another day.

After I told my brother I wanted to speak. I then took my phone and saw that no one was in the room with my dad. That really was only a shell of a body at that point. Hence, I went into the room and here is what I did.

I started playing Raise a hallelujah! By my pastor’s son, Anthony Evans. I played it loud. As I walked in the room where my dad body was. I started to pray praise and worship to my Heavenly Father. It was more of a thank you to the Lord for all the time I had with my dad. I was lifting my thanks to the lord for healing him. Letting him be his son because we are saved by grace. It is a gift from God. All I was doing was up lifting my dad’s homecoming back to the lord. As the song says Raise A hallelujah

My family came in the house because they heard the music and heard their oldest sister going off.  I am not sure what they thought. I just know I needed to say a prayer and thank God for bringing him home. Where he will be alive forever.

So, today as it has been a month and I miss him. I know I will see him. Again, I know this for sure because I do believe in Jesus Christ. I know God sent his son to save the world from all the sins of the world. God’s word tells us this in John (3:16).

I am praying that if you do not know God and what he did for you and me by sending his son here. You seek him out The Lord that is. Pleas not only make sure you get right with your life. You seek out the Lord and learn what he has done for you. That we could not do it for ourselves. So, God shows us in The Bible how he made a way for you and me to live forever.

As I write this to honor my dad. I know he would want you to see what I write as a Good thing.  My dad would want you to not take his homecoming as a bad thing but, his daughters’ story-blog. For you to seek out your heavenly Father. Know that the best thing you and I could learn from my dad’s (homecoming) is. Get to know who Jesus Christ is.  I pray God gives you the gift of knowing his son.

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ. I know this does not make sense to you. Nevertheless, please get a bible, read it. Seek out Gods word and his son. Now if this makes you want to say WOW! I want to know this Jesus Christ. For I want to live forever, Pray this prayer with me.

Dear heavenly Father,

Yes, I want to learn about your son. I do believe that I am a sinner saved by grace. That you sent your son to give us everlasting life I want to learn and change my life to serve you all the days of the rest of my life. I pray I can decrease in my life so your son can increase in me.  Thank you, father for giving me the gift of grace.

In Jesus name amen!

Now if you did pray this! Pleas let me be the first to Welcome you into Gods kingdom forever. If you are saying now what

I will share with you there are four things I want you to do.

  1. Get a bible the NASB is a good one
  2. Talk to God – Jesus in prayer every day. Asking him to help you in reading is word. And showing up for with you in this new walk of life.

Prayer For You and Me

Colossians 1:9-14

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today I pray this out to you on behalf of my readers. I pray as they read this. They insert their Name. Where I placed it in your words. I also pray this prayer for myself. Give all that read this a humble heart to know these words are real and true for them. I thank you for your words from Paul that we can pray it for each other. I pray they see the power in this prayer as they read it to you for there life. I pray in time as I pray this prayer over and over for myself and others. That we understand what your prayer is for all and the strength in Paul’s words. Here Goes !

9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you(name), we have not stopped praying for you, (name), We continually ask God to fill you(name) with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,10 so that you(name) may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you, (name) may have great endurance and patience,12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you, (name) to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Thank You Lord of Lords. King of kings for Pauls words of prayer.

In Jesus Name Amen!

I challenge you to pray this for seven days for you and someone else you love and watch God work in their life and your life as well. I am going to try this as well. For I have heard that God will show up in your prayer life to pray even more for each other. When praying Gods word back to him. Please read what you are praying as well to understand it. Just do not pray this. Paul’s prayer is powerful for all of us.  Take some time out of your day to read Gods word for yourself. God will be there for you No matter what. Believe me I am writing this for myself as well.

Have A Blessed Day! Give God the Glory for all.

UPDATE! GOD IS WORKING!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please go check it out!  www.Hadley.edu

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

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

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

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

Now I would like to take us to prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father,

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

I pray this in your son’s name

In Jesus Christ name Amen

A Prayer of Double Blessing Over All

Today I want to pray a double Blessing over you and your family. I pray this blesses you as much as you need it too. Giving all the Glory to the lord up above for what the blessing does for you. This blessing comes straight from the bible.

Dear heavenly father,

I ask that your words in the bible bless all my readers today. I know we do not know what we need sometimes.  Or sometimes we think we know what we need however, you always know what we need and when we need it. therefore, as you bless us. Please, feel free to bless us the way you feel fit too. for your ways are always better then our ways. as we want the way that is right for our life.  therefore, I quiet  my thoughts and ask you to make my world right again the way you see fit too. Letting my trials just be a bump in the road for your glory to show up for others to learn from and know you will always have our back.

Now, I come to you with this prayer. Thanking you that you put it in the bible for us to read. That this blessing is there for the taking. So please as we read this blessing that you give in your words.  Give a double blessing to anyone who reads it today. As we read it up and back to you. Please, bless all that are around us as well let them catch this blessing as well. No matter who they are.

As it says in, Deuteronomy 28:3-13 English Standard Version (ESV)Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Blessed shall you be when you come in,and blessed shall you be when you go out. “The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. The Lord will command the blessing on you in your barns and in all that you undertake. And he will bless you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. The Lord will establish you as a people holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways. 10 And all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your livestock and in the fruit of your ground, within the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, being careful to do them,

I pray these words over all today In Jesus Name AMEN!

Let god be the Glory for all you do. You will not go wrong for that. Love and blessings to all
