Today’s Struggles Are Never To Big For Your GOD!

It is really early. However today I must write to you all. I need to share. The Devil will not have me believe the Lies of this world. Today as I am doing this podcast. Writing my journey story. The storm is getting hard. Yes, the struggles are real, but my God is bigger then the lies of this world. Let me share with you all. I think because I am now doing a podcast and sharing my story out. The storm is starting to really brew. I am watching from a distance. As I am also living out this struggle. As people are getting away with doing me wrong. They maybe climbing the latter. Let me first share I do not wish any hardship on anyone. NO not at all.

It is absolutely amazing how my life flipped upside down. In a million ways since I have come to Texas. Let me share my life has never been easy. No not in one way. As I have started to share with you all on my podcast. If you know me, you will know for sure this truth. For you have seen it play out as I have.

Nevertheless, as I do and will keep on doing for my whole life. I will share GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! NO MATTER THE STORM!

Yes, that is a truth that I can hole on to for sure.

Let me now share with you. All of a sudden, every item that I spoke about in my podcast like the 72,000.00 debt, the court case for my EEOC claim is showing up. I am glad that it is coming to pass. What I mean by this is, they are and have been playing with my life for too long. By not wanting to speak with me. No, they really still do not want to speak with me. They just want to send me stuff. Saying that I am not correct or that I have no rights in my statements. I was even told by someone yesterday. I am having more issues because I worked there. They feel like I need to be held at a higher standard.  

I get no answers to my questions. I cannot believe that one person could cause so much trouble for me. Then get away with it. They really are playing a game with me. It is not ok but as I do say it really is ok. That they are playing games with me. I always have shared during this process. I did not do anything to deserve this. However, if I am wrong in any way, I will do what is right.  That God knows the truth of it all. He will always supply all that I need. I do wish people would really learn I am a God GIRL. What I mean is you can be mean to me. You can treat me bad. You can tell lies. However, even if I did do something wrong. I will sit down and make it right.  Also, I know I will not let anyone walk over me. That God is going to get the glory for it all. The miss treatment in this let’s call it a debacle. Is so wrong but God will carry me through it all.

I cannot believe how some people get away with there lies. Again, nothing is going to bring me down for long. For I serve a God who I trust fully with my life.

Yes, I do!

I have walked away from so many things. That I knew were wrong. Where people would have said to me. Just stay. You cannot do it (leave that is). Pretty much telling me that I have to conform to the lies of this world. That my job or whatever is not correct is the only way to make it in this world.

Well, as I am sharing NO I will not lay down for the wrongs of this world. I serve a MIGHTY GOD!

If I do what is right and even if I am not right at times. As long as I do my best and not conform to the lies of the world. God will get me through this for sure.

He will do the same for you. Be truthful in all you do. It will work out in the end. I know this for sure.  It is just sad that this has happen. I did all that I could. I DID MY JOB. I Gave then all they needed during this time. With the correct documents.

Now let me share I will sit at this table before my enemies. Yes, let me share God will set a table before my enemies. He will fight this battle for sure. If I am wrongly convicted. I will take my judgement and do my time. Whatever time is for me. Hence, let me share with you God will give me the strength to get through it. HE will help me get through it all. He will provide me the outlet to serve the judgement. He will get the glory at the end. I know I am not perfect. I have done all that I can. I have put this on the alter for the Lord. So, as I always share LET’S GO GOD!  YOU TAKE THE WHEEL!

I pray if you are going through a storm of life you. Just grab on to Gods word. Do not let anyone tell you he is not there for you. That you just have to conform to the lies of this world.

If I am found guilty of the lies of the world it is ok. For if I can share with you God will show up and help you with it all.

If you feel you have nothing at this time. Let me share you do. It is the only thing you need. Sorry if you are not a believer in Christ.  This may be hard for you to hold on to or believe.

BUT I have to share and yes it will be all in capital letters. For I am shouting it out to the world to hear.

MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY IF HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE HE WILL DO IT AGAIN!

I will say it again.

MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY IF HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE HE WILL DO IT AGAIN

Today as I am writing this of course I am playing praise and worship music.

As I do so many times. No matter what is going on.

Let me share it is the best of Anthony Evans. I just asked my home device to play music. I should have known! She would here from God. And play Anthony Evans first out of the box.

The first song was See it again. Then sing a Hallelujah.  Then Fighting for us. Going on and on.

Also let me share as I did get bad news this week. God has already started providing me with GREAT NEWS!

I have to share that A dear friend who I have not talked to in years. Has come to my table and helping me.

dear heavenly Father,

I come boldly to you at your feet. I know you have the best plans for all of us. No matter what the world is going through. I know you have your children in the palm of your hands. This road may be long. This road may be hard. But I serve a MIGHTY GOD! You will supply all my needs to your riches and glory. Philippians 4:19. I know the plans you have for me. You declare them over your children Jeremiah 29:11. You will never leave us. I can do all things with you Christ who strengthen me Philippians 4:13.

Just thank you for making the way. When I do not see the way. I pray as I always do. For my readers, listeners, friends, and anyone who needs to be lifted up to you Lord. You

are the beginning and the end.

I pray all this in your sons Glorious Name Jesus Christ Amen!

My Story My Interview See It All Here! GOD BE THE GLORY!

logo for Struggling Blessed But not ALONE Roses in a heart shape

God is so good to me! Yes, he is for you for sure. Did you know he is good to you too? I do care about you; however, I want to share no matter your struggle-storm of life GOD WILL GET YOU THROUGH IT! Please do not let the lies of the world tell you any different about YOUR GOD! I do have great faith. I lean on him for everything and I mean everything. I have no job Today not because I do not want to work. It is because I had a great job working for the Government nevertheless, I could not do it anymore. No, it was not because it was too hard for me. No, it was not because I lost my sight. It was because I was getting BULLIED By my boss just about every day.  I did my job. I made sure all my work was done. If anyone ever asked me to do any part of my job or even if it was not a part of my job I did help out and do it.  

I do need to share I had a positive attitude just about every day. I took my issues to anyone that would listen Nevertheless, this bully (they know she is one) however they let her get away with being a bully. So, one day I had my share. I tried my hardest to not quit. I prayed everyday to my God.  He did hear me.  I know he does here me. I asked him to change me and this bully for his goodness.

 The sad part of this story is I liked this bully. I wanted to work hard for her.  I was told she was not a good Person by so many people.  Nevertheless, I did not want to believe it at all. For I know not everyone is liked by everyone. I have been in leadership roles. So, I get it but what I do not get and will never get is….

Why do some people feel like they are the end all and be all? when they or we all have a job to do. That is not my story. I pray for her every day. I forgive her.

I did all that I could. One day I had enough so I prayed to God asking what I can do. He showed me that I needed to just quit. I had a lot of people praying for me at this time. For I knew this job was a good one. I have to share even though it was a good job. God had a bigger plan for me. Yes! So, he showed me one day it is time Teresa! I prayed and prayed God please no Let me stay. Then I ask God to really show up. Now let me let you know he was showing up. Even though I did not like the answer.

This one week I went into my job and from the start of my day. She was on me for everything. I even shared with her to please stop.  I am doing my job. Well, she did not. I even took a few days off. I prayed and prayed. God shared in my spirit it was time.

I even said to God this one morning, you are going to have to hit me over the head. lol I am not sure; I am hearing you. Give me one more sign. Well, he did. I walked into that job that day and there she was at my desk on me again. So, I had enough. I let her leave my area. I put in for some leave so I could use up all my time. The next thing I Knew she called me at my desk. Sharing that I could not have all my days off. Then I just said I needed to have a meeting with her. She told me she had only 30 mins but that I could see her now.

Well, I went up to her office. I let her know I was done with all of it.

That I was resigning in two weeks. That I had had enough of her bulling me. That I did my job to the best of my ability. That I did my job because it was my job. But I also always did my job to the best as well because I knew she need me to, and I wanted her to look good with her boss. For she had at this time a big deadline to meet. I wanted to make sure we met that deadline. She at first told me I could not quit. Not really because she cares but because I owed the government $72,000,.00. I told her yes, I know what I owe. However, I could not take her being the way she was to me. I share that God would help me in all that I had with my life. That I did not want to keep coming to a job where I was being treated bad by someone. And no one care. That I was taking the power away from her being a bully to me. That I know this is a job, but God is my source and resource.

You may be asking why, are you sharing this story.

Well, it is because I today am not out of that 72,000.000debt. I cannot find a job as of yet not because of this issue. I do not get my full DSSI check not because of what I owe at this time. I am fighting all of it. Yes, I am living on my savings for over almost 2 years. I am leaning on my God who shows me every day. He has my back. I at this time am living better then most. I am not trying to be too proud in this life changing time.

I am just sharing because I need you to know GOD will get you through it all. No matter, the struggle -storm of life.

I lean on my God not this world. GOD IS MY SOURCE AND RESOURCE. I now am doing a podcast as you all may know. I have been doing this blog.

To show the world God does care and he will show up right on time for you. If he is doing it for me, he will do it for you.

Please check me out each week not only here but on my podcast to share my struggles and other peoples struggles so you can see how God is working in people’s life.

How my life may be a struggle, but God is working in the MIST of it all. I have a Romans 8:28 life. I have a Philippians 4;6-7,4:13,4:19 lifestyle I have a Mathew he will supply all my need lifestyle.

I lean on my Bible for everything in my life. I am not perfect. I do have many struggles.  My struggles are hard. YES! I am now Blind but Please read my words and know GOD IS FOR YU AND NOT AGAINST YOU. Deuteronomy31:8 is so real and true. He will not leave you or forsake you.  Everyone else in his world will at some point.

I know my story of how God is working in and through me now has to be told. Not because of who I am but because who I serve everyday MY GOD!

If you do not believe in him, please just speak with him, and see how he is really going to help you.

Now I am proud to share I got invited to share my life story with my friend Ann From Inspirational Journeys stories that matter!

Exciting News And A Thank You!

Hello to All.

Today, I want to share with you all. I am so happy inside my heart for three reasons. One Thank You! All for listening to my first ever podcast and for all the kind.

words. Two I got a sponsor right out of the box. So, please share my Podcast but only if you feel led to do so. I found out from a few friends that have Podcasts and have been doing it for years. They still have no sponsor. SO, it is a good thing to get it right out of the box. Even with all of my mistakes in it. The third thing that I need to share with you all is.  This one is I feel the best one for sure. God has blessed me with a few new friends. Yes! I need to share one of these new friends with you all.

I think you all will love her just as much as I do. Her name is Mandy. I found her before I did my Podcast maybe about 2 days before it all got up and running. I was getting ready for bed. Having a hard night. I was in one of those moods praying to God for help in my sadness. I do this from time to time. But when I am going down my sad hill of life. I just like I shared with you all before. I cry to God to help me through it. I do sit in the boat with Jesus when times like this happen. Well, this night I had my cell phone by my bed. After I spoke with God. My thoughts moved over to let me see what is going on in the WordPress world. Well, low and behold, I found a new person to read and follow. Yes, Mandy from Abundant Life was my Angel from God that night. I only read two of her blog posts. I had no idea what her story was. I read a post about doing things on Purpose.  At this time, I had no idea what she was going through in her life. After I clicked on that post, I wiped my eyes. I read another one. It was good too.  I found myself commenting on her posts. I shared with her words of encouragement as well as telling her she is a blessing to me. I was so excited. I took my cell phone and spoke a message into the comment section.  I did not fix my grammar at all.  I just wanted to get that message to her. I do this from time to time. It is because of my blindness. I just speak the message into my phone. Yes, grammar does matter however, I do not want to lose the first words God gives me at times to share with others. It is so hard not being blind all of my life to fix some items. This is one of them. I am working on hence it is a big work in process. It is a hard one for me. Nevertheless, I just wanted to share my thoughts. I do listen to it to make sure my message makes sense. There is just little punctuation in it. There may be a word here or there misspelled.  If fixed them know I would take too long and say for get it. So, this is just my thing. You will forgive me or not! I am ok with if you do or do not.

Anyways let me now share with you after she read them, we went back and forth in the comments. She told me I could use anything on her page.

God was pressing on my heart to tell her that I wanted her on my podcast. I still did not know her life story. Nevertheless, it was not time to know it. I just knew I was struggling at that time. And she was a blessing and an Angel from God. So, if you go to her page you can see the messages back and forth. However, I would rather you read the positive words of encouragement she has to share.

We have now talked, and she is going to come on my podcast for sure.

I now am going to set up a YouTube Channel in the next few weeks so my readers and listeners can now see me, and my interview will be able to be seen as well. I may not be able to see hence I do know we all like to put a voice to someone’s words and we do like to see people too.  She agreed a YouTube interview would be better.

Even though I am saying God really this is too fast. I have been in prayer about it and God is showing me it has to be done. 😊

So, I ask you two things now please! First stay in prayer with me on this next journey. Two please go check her Mandy out at Abundant Life.

Here is the link to read all that she has to share with the world and giving God the Glory too. I promise (you know I hate saying I promise) but I can for this. You will not be sad after reading her posts. She is a positive person, and her struggle is Large. But she knows her for sure her source and resource.

Here is Mandy’s The Abundant Life blog

Thank you! for all that you do in our lives. I know at times life is hard, but I know you are for me. I know you have the best plans ever. I am just so thankful I can share my life with others to glorify you Lord. I pray you keep me in check every day of my life to honor you Lord. I pray for all that is reading my blog. that they do see you are the beginning and the end. You have all good things for your children. Thank you for my struggles too. For I do believe without them I would not serve you as I do. I know they are hard; however, I know you are walking by my side.

I love and thank you Lord!

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 I want to share a memory from my childhood. This is a memory that I want to dedicate to my earthly daddy. Who is now in heaven with our Heavenly Father? I pray as I share this story with you all, you remember your own stories of loved ones that have gone to be with our heavenly Father Pleas, feel free to post in the comments section a memory story of your loved ones.
this memory is a great one that fits my blog so well. It is not only about my earthly daddy, but it also has to do with our heavenly Daddy. This is my first memory of getting to learn about GOD and his son. I pray it warms your heart as it does mine. When God told me to share it with the world.  I thought what a great story to start my 2021 blog off with. Yes! I will have tears in my eyes as I write this for, I Miss you Daddy and Love you so much. Nevertheless, Thank you daddy because of this memory. I know I will see you again!  😊

Ok as always let me set the stage for you all.

This story happened over 46 years ago. In a city called Hollywood. No not Hollywood California but Hollywood Florida. My mother, Father, and brothers are the people in this story. Please enjoy! 😊

So, I was about maybe 5 my oldest brother was about 6, and my youngest brother was about 3. It was this story really that taught us to know who the Lord was.

It was like any other day for a family of 5. My mother was cooking dinner in the kitchen. We were playing in the family room. My dad comes in from the garage. He just got home from a busy long a day of work. My mother shares that dinner will be ready soon. She calls us all to the dinner table. We all get seated around the dinner table. My dad leads us in prayer. We Eat our dinner. Then my mother tells us to get our toys cleaned up for after she cleans up the dinner mess. We are going to take a bath and get ready for bed. Now we had time to clean up our toys. Next my mother would call us one by one to get in the bath and clean ourselves off from the day. Of course, as you may know our bath time took some time for, we needed to play in the bath water.  It was not a fun bath time if we did not take longer playing in the tub. After we all got cleaned up and our PJ’s on. We brushed our little teeth. Then we marched into my parents’ room. Where my dad was waiting for us. We now had story time. It was not fictional Storytime. It was and is the greatest story time you could ever have and read. They were stories from the bible.

He my dad had a big white and gold book. It was not just any book it was our children’s bible. He had it open and ready to go for our Storytime. It was the best time ever. I love this time right before bed.  I remember this like it was yesterday. My brothers and I would climb up on his bed and sit around him. Once we all settled down. My dad would say ok guys are you ready for a great story. WE would say YES! Then my dad would read from the children’s bible. We would sit quietly and just listen very intently to the story. After, the story was over my dad would turn to the back of the children’s bible book. Where we had the most fun. We would sing the bible songs at the back of the book. My dad would say which ones do you all want to sing first. We would shout in our little voice’s. Jesus Loves the little children of the world. We would sing and sing that song. We would ask to sing it over and over. Yes, my two brothers and I would sing as loud as we could sing that song. My dad would sing right along side of us. Like we were a grand church choir. Now, my dad who let us sing about 3 songs. Mostly singing that sone twice. We love that song. After we heard a bible story, sang out a joyful noise to the Lord. My dad would say a prayer this was our bedtime hour as well as our bed tine prayer. My mother would then tell us ok guys lets go. It was time for us to hit the hey. Yes, it was bedtime.

Not only is this a great memory of time spent as a family. It was a wonderful time to learn about our Heavenly Father. It is the earliest memories that I have of learning about the grace of our heavenly father.  Today as I share this memory with you all. I pray two things for you at this time. One if you have children make time and memories with them. Two share the word with all and anyone. I pray this story warms your heart as it does mine. I pray you have great memories of your loved ones that have now moved on to heaven.  Just know you will see them again for God gives his children the best gift-promise ever. John, (3:16); For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Dear heavenly Father,

I come boldly to you with my readers at your feet. I ask you today to put it in my readers hearts to share your good news with all that they can. I pray that as we have lost a lot of loved ones. That you help us to understand that it is not easy, but it is your timing for all. That no matter who has gone before us. You direct all of our steps. I know this is not easy to lose a loved one. Nevertheless, I am grateful for your promises that we will see them again. At your appointed time for us. I pray as we look back for a minute and only a minute for, we need to move forward. We do know they are in the best place ever. That we hurt more then they will. That they are sitting with you saying if they only could see us now. I cannot believe it took me so long to get here.  Even though they are saying that we know it is not our time so help us Lord for our losses to move forward. To be able to make the best time that we can here on earth. To honor, worship, spend time learning more about your glory to you and for you. That we really do try this year to ask ourselves when we are not sure. What would Jesus do in this situation. That we really learn to help one another. Not looking at who or what they can or cannot do for us. I pray that we see everyone the same. For you made us all. As the children’s song Jesus loves the little children, of the world.  Says: Red, Brown, Yellow Black, and White they are precious in his sight. Which you know we are all the same No color matters. For you made us all. In your image. You know what you have for each one of us. That not one of us is better then another. That we are all sinners saved by your son’s death.  Thank you for that Lord for we are not better then another.

In Jesus Name Amen!
