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 as it is December 5, 2020. I hope you do not mind Today I want to reflect on two days ago. That means I am going to talk about December 3, 2020. You may be thinking why December 3, 2020. What is so big about that day. Well for most of you Not one thing however, for me it was a BIG DAY! If you have not reached this time in your life. I pray it is all that you want it to be. It was a Big Milestone in my Life. It was My 50th birthday. I am so Thankful to GOD for ME! That he Loved me so much that he planted a seed. In my mother’s womb and created me. I thank anyone that did remember that day and sent me birthday wishes!  Now I tried my hardest to make it a Great Day for myself! For no one can make your day Happy but you! I wish I could have had a party.  It was not because of COVID -19 That it did not happen. I can honestly say it is just not in the cards for me to ever be celebrated in that way. Please, do not feel bad for me. My life has always been a Struggle.  I do my best everyday to fight to live my best life. Nevertheless, the reason why I am getting on my blog and sharing this with you today is because as this is the month That we do celebrate Christmas (Jesus Christ) Birthday. Please! Do not look for anything big for yourself. I pray as there was not one gift given to me, I had no birthday cake as well as an exceedingly small group of people Wishing me A happy birthday!  Please let’s not forget Jesus on his birthday! Please be Thankful on this Christmas morning for him and all that he has done for you.  I was even told by one or two people that “it is not really a big day my 50th birthday” I pray you do not think that on Jesus Birthday!  For he was created to save you!

Please! Realize it is not about you and what you can get on this day or your birthday. It is that he is the beginning and the end of all. He was created-born for the biggest gift you could ever get. On your birthday or on any day of your life. He created you for so much more than just what you need or want in this life. You can have the biggest gift if you just trust and believe in him. The Gift of grace

This Too Shall Pass! Go Sit In The Boat With Jesus!

Photo by Te lensFix on Pexels.com

t is now one in the morning! November 1 as here, and October 31 has now passed. The first Holiday of the Fall season is now over Halloween, Two more to Go. Thanksgiving being the next one in days. Maybe today we need to start being thankful if we are not in a storm. However, be thankful even if you are. For, “This too Shall Pass.” I have something I want you to do today if your storms of life are so hard and you are seeking help for them.

Go sit in the boat with Jesus. Yes, I will share how to do just this. This is something I do when life is just troubling me so. My storms of life are not easy at all. However, I know my God is working on my storms and his hand is on your storms too. You will really be thankful for the storm you are in. Yes, you read that correctly. When you go sit in the boat with Jesus.

Ok at this point, I am sure the night is over. You are more then likely in your bed with all of the covers around you and a pillow at your head. For here in Texas the weather is very cold it is around 49-55 degrees outside. Therefore, if this is the case. Again, you are in bed with your covers all around you and a pillow at your head. This is an awesome place to be in the boat with Jesus.  However, if you are not in your bed and want to do this Just go get a blanket and a small pillow. Then, go sit in your favorite chair.  I promise no matter where you are you can always go sit in the boat with Jesus. The only other items you may want is your Bible. If you are really feeling this after I do this with you. The next time you are feeling bad with your storms of life. You will not call a friend. You will find yourself going to sit in the boat with Jesus more often. You may want to also play some praise and worship music. While, Getting in the boat with Jesus.

Now, I can promise if you are sad when you started this. Jesus will be having you change your sadness to joy. You will have peace like you have never had before. You will really be rested at the end of this time in the boat with Jesus and his disciples. Yes, you are not alone with Jesus we have to have the Disciples. We are crashing their party with Jesus. We are going to learn with the disciples.  However, this story may be over 2,000 years old it still rings true today.

So, let’s Go God!

If you do not have the items, you need. Please, go get them and sit in your favorite chair or get in your bed. Now that you have these Items wrap the blanket around you pretend the blanket is Jesus wrapping his arms around you like a hug. Put that pillow behind your head. Get very comfy. If you are like me when I start to do this my storm is so hard. I am praying out to my Lord. As I am getting my items ready for my boat ride. I am sometimes even crying while I am praying. So, if this is the case pray and cry first. Hence, please do not do this for long. But do it for a minute be real with Jesus. I can tell you; the disciples are doing just that too. At the start of this boat ride.  The storm is bumpy, rough, windy, rainy, and cold.  However, Now lets get our bible and see what Jesus does and says. Let me share there are three different accounts of this. It is in the Book of Mathew, Mark, and Luke.

Mathew, (8:23-27)

23 Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. 24 Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm. 27 The disciples were amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked. “Even the winds and waves obey him!”

Mark (4:35-41)

35 As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36 So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). 37 But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. 38 Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” 39 When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. 40 Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!”

Luke (8:22-27)

22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So, they got into a boat and started out. 23 As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger. 24 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped, and all was calm. 25 Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!”

Now, that we have read all three accounts of Jesus calming the storm. Do you see how he helped them not worry about? The storm that they were dealing with in that boat.  Remember, we at this time are in the boat along with Jesus and the disciples. We crashed this party so, let’s not let our storm of life shake us up like the disciples are doing. Let’s learn from Jesus. Take your pillow and blanket REST, REST YOUR PRETTY LITTLE HEAD. Jesus has it!  Yes, he is in control of this storm and all of the storms you will go through in your life. If you have not fallen a sleep by this point because of the rest that Jesus has given you about dealing with your storm.

 I pray as you are in the boat with Jesus your tears have turned in to Peace, Love, Joy and Strength to let go of this storm and let Jesus take you to the other side of it. Now, is the time to play praise and worship music.  

GODS GOT IT! Is a great song to play at this time by Jay Moss! There are many songs to play however, this is a fun song I do like to play. I will share this link from YouTube at the end of this blog.

I pray today for I do not know how long your storm will last. I do pray that you know Jesus is in control and is calming the winds, rain, and bumpiness of it all. Just keep the faith and lean on him.

Dear Heavenly Father,

All I can say is, Thank You! For your word. That it shows us that you are working in every aspect of our lives.  I know we may not know when our storms of life may end. Nevertheless, you show us in your word that you are in control of it all. The Road may get bumpy. The shore may be rough. Still through the bad weather of it all YOU come through it all by calming the storms of life. I pray today as your children struggle at times to not forget that you have your hand in all of the storms no matter how big or small. You Got It! That your timing is the best timing. I pray that my readers see this as well and to always give you the time you need to help them through it and then give you the glory for what is done with in that storm after it has finished. That they came through it. That they see you are the only one that could calm them and get the storm to blow over. That the victory lays in your hands. That no matter if times are good or bad, they learn to read your word so, when the storms of life do hit them hard they have a great foundation to lean on.  As I pray this for my readers. I pray this for myself. For sometimes I forget that you are going to get me through it too. That it is your timing that is the best for me and my readers. Romans (8:28)

In Jesus Name Amen!

Who The Son Sets Free Is Free Indeed!

Bring your shackles. Bring your stresses of life. Bring your troubles for the world. Bring your sadness. Bring your passion. Bring your treasures. Bring it all to him. Yes, take it to him. He (Jesus) cares for you. Even if you have just a mustard seed of faith. I can tell you that you need to bring it all to Jesus and trust he will move mountains for you and me. He can take it all. He has already taken up the cross for you and me. Give it all up to him. It is time to get ready for the revival. Jesus Christ the king of kings is, coming soon. Just know Jesus is for you and not against you. Give him the Glory no matter what you are facing. Bring it to his feet. God has given his son for you and me. Do it today please do not wait to come to him. Believe God loves you no matter what your physical challenges are. I can only share what I know from the Bible God’s word. He can not lie. His word is alive and active more today then ever. As this world is in a crisis. It is a world Crisis. Just know God is controlling it all. The Government is a part of this world. However, if you are a believer you know that we are in this world but, we are not of this world. We know that God has it all. Yes, because we are a part of the world, we need to follow rules and the law. God wants us to not turn on each other. He just wants us to seek, him out. Today more them ever. Look for his everlasting love. Bring your burdens to the throne. Trust what you cannot see. Faith is walking without sight. Jesus will not stop the troubles of this world. They must happen for his Glory to come. However, if you and everyone around us. Would just look up to him. His mercy will be new. God wants the best for all. That is why he put his own son on the cross. When in the Old Testament we could not follow the law that he gave. He loved and still loves us so much that he Put his son on the cross. God made his perfect son. Suffer for our sins. He knew no one else could take the burdens (sins) of the world. Sit with God today! I know I have troubles of my own today. However, I want to let you know that I do believe God is working. No matter what.  Believe me today my heart is breaking. My dad is not perfect at all. I have my troubles in my family. As we all do. I at this time I cannot go home. I do not drive. Believe me if I did, I would be on the road on the way home to my family. For my dad is extremely sick. He is dying. Yes, he is dying. Thank God no matter how much he is in pain and suffering. No matter how there is no cure for his cancer. No matter how he is crying out for help.  I want you to know HE is giving God and Jesus his son The Glory for it all. The devil I believe is trying to work in his head currently. With all of his pain

I say this because I am not sure what he is hearing in his head. But I am told he is speaking out to God. I am told by my sisters and brother. He just wants prayer as we are in the room with him. As they pray with and over him. There is a peace that over comes him.

Now there may be one of you reading this saying if it is that bad. Then where is your God Now! Believe me he (GOD) is alive and well in that room. We just need to praise God. For I am believing that Jesus loves us so much even in our pain. Currently, the devil is just trying to play with my dad. He is thinking just like you. However, to me and my family this is more of a testimony about how one knows Gods Word and knows to stand on it even more. He my dad is again not perfect. But he is saved and a child of God. No matter what. He has always stood on God’s word. I know this is not fair to see someone you love to be in this much pain. I do not like it at all. Not one bit. However, God is a good God. I have seen God work in so many ways. For he is a way maker. I do believe his will is being done with my dad. I say this because it is amazing to watch someone be in so much pain. And still give love, honor, and Glory to his maker. I have been on the phone with him days and weeks before this. I have had bible talks with him. It is amazing to here him. Keep on sharing the word with me. He does know he has made a lot of sins in this world. For that is not for you and me to judge. For we all have sins. He knows Jesus died for him. I just love how we just talk about the goodness of the Lord.  I do believe even through this time of hard ship. I will turn this time of sadness into a God (Glory story). I see it in a man that is not perfect at all. I watched this man (my dad) love the lord all of his life. I cannot remember a time that he was not sharing the word with someone. So even through this time of hard ship. It shows the power of having faith in The Lord. I do think this is also a lesson for all. What I mean by this is while he is in pain. He also is praising the Lord with his words back to him. So, as I hear and know this what it teaches me is GO SEAK JESUS OUT! GO READ HIS WORD! For when the times get hard. For you do not know how you will leave this earth. IF it will be a painful one like my dad’s. What I can tell you is if you know his word. Then you can put on the armer of God. It is the hardest thing to watch. Watching someone you love to suffer and know there is not one thing you can do. However, my family is doing something. Giving a Hallelujah to The King of Kings! The lord of Lords! The Alpha and the Omega! To Jehovah Gyri! The Messiah! Jesus Christ our Lord and savior! that through it all we will always serve the Lord! Yes! It is hard but it is the truth. God has my dad and all of my family in the palm of his hands. The devil has no place in That home in that family. My brothers and sisters and I are awfully close however, this struggle is allowing us to get even closer. Not only with each other but with Jesus Christ our Lord.

As I write this story today about my dad and my family and the love we have for the Lord. I pray you see it is a story for you to go seek the Lord out. Do not go one more day without giving him Jesus Christ! The Glory for all things. I pray that for you today.

Dear heavenly Father,

I com boldly to your throne. Currently, the Guffanti Family is struggling watching their Father suffer however, I pray that my story that I blog today shows my readers. That no family is perfect. No one will escape the troubles of life. Even during death. But the love you have for your children is endless. Especially, when no matter what is going on, we seek you out. That we first get saved by knowing that your son did die for our sins. Then starting and having a personal relationship with you and your son. Again, we do not become perfect after that but, we try to be more like your son Jesus Christ.  I do know as this is a hard time, I will always Glorify you in the mists of it all. I will see my dad again. Where there is no pain and suffering. There is peace soon for all your children. I just hope this message of hardship if it hits one person. To seek you out then I feel it was just what needed to happen. to bring that person to you. For them to be in your kingdom for the rest of their life.

Please let your will be done with my dad. For I do know you are working better then we could ever do. Even in his suffering.  I do know He loves you (my dad). We thank you for your mercy, and that it is new every day. That also know that you gave us the gift of grace. That we have your word during the good and bad times to stand on.  I do love you. Please Father when you are ready take him home Lord. I will miss him, but I am honored to know I will be there soon. Please stop his suffering for he loves you! We give you the Glory for all that we are going through. Please give my mother the strength to be ok after his passing. For we are not a perfect family however, we will serve you all of the days of our lives. I love you Lord! Thank you for your son. Yes! Who the Son Sets Free Is Free Indeed! Thank you 😊

 

In your son’s name Jesus Christ, we pray Amen!

I leave you today with this bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11-14

11 For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration— “plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 You will call to me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“and I will restore your fortunes[a] and gather you from all the nations and places where I banished you”—this is the Lord’s declaration. “I will restore you to the place from which I deported you.”

 

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!
