Happy New Year 2015, WordPress Friends!

Happy New Year, Y’all!!!

The hubby & I all cozy.

At the beginning of this year, I encouraged everyone, declaring that this would be OUR Year! Great things would happen! And in my personal life, at first I wasn’t so sure…but they did happen. They happened in a more Divine way… 😉

2014 was the second most difficult year of my life. However, this year in all of my afflictions and struggling, I have been spiritually transformed. Turns out my greatest battles were inside of me all along.

The eyes of my heart were opened. I see God working in my life.

 

  1. I found out that I am wonderfully and fearfully made. The Lord made my body, knowing how it would shrink and expand at times. He makes no mistakes. Its okay for my weight to fluctuate now and then. My main concern is now my health, avoiding Diabetes, & taking care of me in all matters of life.  I shed the Vanity of my youth. I am then going to be being a better help to all of my loved ones. Kindness and Love.
  2. I’m more bold about sharing my faith (as you’ve probably noticed) with the world. I know that I must walk the walk, not just talk the talk, but I am unafraid. I share positive messages and inspirational posters on Facebook all the time. Many of them including God, Jesus and all things related. I try to encourage people to open up and give God a chance. My goal is to share the great healing that I know because of the Son of God. The Good News of Him, and the hope of the world. I’m not ashamed either. It’s not what they think of me, it’s about getting the world to think about Him.
  3.  I survived losing my dad to his many health complications. It is possible to heal after losing a loved one. Saying goodbye in the ICU and then crying by his grave later on, I found comfort and peace in Christ. We can overcome the most dark times in our lives.
  4. I began learning to see people differently-not as their bodies or appearances, but as their spirits inside, and their humanness. This is a work in progress that will continue as long as I live.  I’m able to forgive at a better rate and let go because I realized we are all the same. No matter what vehicle or means of transportation you have-or lack of, how big your house is or where you live, how large your bank account is or savings (for some of us, savings is sometimes a piggy bank). We all end up in the ground-or in some cases cremated. Death is inevitable for human beings. We are mortal. If somebody does something horrible to me, or hurts me, I know that I am just as capable as doing it to anyone else, myself.  “I am human. Nothing human can be alien to me.” -Maya Angelou quoting Terrance.
  5. I’m still learning. I have no more to list as of right now. The 4 I’ve listed are very dear to my heart. They’re pretty big ones 😛

Also, lets make Goals this year! Small attainable ones, and larger-in the grand scheme-kinda goals. I didn’t reach the goal weight for my end of 2014 deadline, but I far exceeded my expectations Spiritually…so yeah, I’ll take that 🙂

Things are going to happen that we don’t plan. They interupt our routine and sometimes knock us off course. But we get back up and we keep going! I believe this life is a race, and the prize is what we sow while we are here. My goal is for an amazing, Supernatural Harvest when I’m called Home to the next life.

I value people, and living things now more than ever-things to cherish. So I guess there is a number 5 after all.

Try and take as many photos as you can…but make memories! Make as many good memories as you can! They can be anything! It doesn’t have to be a big event, or anything…just share your life, share yourself! You are the best gift you can give anyone. You’re worth it.

Now Have a Happy New Year, friends!

It’s been a wonderful year blogging here at WP and making friends, sharing our lives, our stories, secrets, and our dreams.

Love you guys!

Jesus Foretold of ISIS & Persecutions

“They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.”

-John 16:2-3

That sounds so familiar concerning the current events of this world, doesn’t it?

The entire Gospel of John in The Bible is but a single part of  it all…Sacred text…information left for generations concerning today’s world that you don’t have to watch the news to see.  Great Truths. It’s been there all along, but maybe now more sought after?

Things are changing in the world today. Planes are vanishing off the radar. With all of the technology and such that we have now, how can this be? This year there has been a bunch of horrible happenings around the globe. Acts of War, horrendous persecutions, Terrorism, so much else.

People are looking for answers. What is really going on?

People of every faith & culture under the sun are wondering. Something’s going on. My husband doesn’t like for me to talk about it. It may seem that when I, or others, speak about all of this, so negative. But, yes, all of these things are negative events. They must be addressed no matter how sour, how unpleasant. It’s true that what happens on a global level can affect our lives on a local scale and in a personal sense.

What do you think?

Its nothing new, but this man made it clear what he was doing. I can’t wait ’til the next election! Being destroyed as a nation bit by bit from the inside out has been quite the ride for the United States!

Our God is not dead, He’s ALIVE: Praying for The persecuted Body of Christ

This post is for our family in The Body of Christ, across the waters in the east who are being physically persecuted, tortured, and murdered.

Know this:They can bend us, and maybe break the physical bodies we have, that are but flesh. But they cannot break our spirits, nor take away the Power that lives inside of us, and The Truth that we know.

Myself, and so many others are praying for the Christians, the Jewish people, and everyone suffering in all of this. I pray for the people of the Ukraine. I pray of those that persecute us. The members of these evil, killing groups that deceive the children, prey on the unstable, and kill in the name of their “god.” How is it honorable to destroy, to kill?

There is a reward for everyone coming when the Son returns, coming in the clouds to claim those that are His.

Some people may say that this is a little bold, or perhaps that I could be stepping on some toes. But that’s what following Jesus is! It is being Bold, being unafraid, and proclaiming with ever fiber inside of you that Christ is Lord! Standing up for God! Wavering not… If God be for us, who be against us?

Our God is not dead, He’s ALIVE.

Be encouraged, precious ones.

Amen.

Misconceptions + Deception = Chaos

As followers of Christ, we’re struggling everywhere around the world. From the most life threatening struggles of physical persecution, to the ones that I know on a personal level (dealings with getting ready for Church). Clothes, my body, & presentation. My Bulimia acts are no longer around, but I am not healed. To live a happy life we must work on the quality of every day, from wake up, til going to sleep. There is no direct finish line to happy. It’s ongoing. We work daily on overcoming the evil one. Daily is the race to our desired Home with Jesus forever.

Driving along in the car tonight, I thought about some current situations in my life that need extra attention. These situations are part of not only my struggle, but part of the lives of others involved. The more I think of them, and then think of them in terms of being human and the trials of this life, it just all seemed silly. I was relieved I could finally smile about it! I see it for the learning experience that it really is. What can seem like the end to us can actually just be the deception of the Devil himself. In 2014, I have learned the following equation of the Soul.

Misconceptions + Deception = Chaos

But…

No matter how dead you may feel inside with doubts, anxieties or fears that challenge your daily lives and your very faith, God is alive. When you suffer with Jesus, you suffer with purpose, because you are being unraveled and the goodness in you is slowly being revealed in a brighter way. If we really try our darnedest, no matter what, the carvings and thorns will all make us better for the Lord. A new creation. There is much to be done, much to sow, and the reaping is going to literally be out of this world!

Remember no matter what’s going on in your life, you are NOT over! You have much to live for right now! The power is in the present moment.

God bless everyone tonight!

Ready for Bed?

Lay down not only your body tonight, but all of your worries, doubts, & fears of anxiety as well. Spread out comfortably in bed and take a moment to ponder this night. All of today is now a memory and part of the past. If you see the dawn, you’ve received the gift of another day, another chance to do what it is you need to do, to make a difference in the lives of others, to share your story and inspire others. Tomorrow could be the best day of your life. That miracle you’ve been praying for could unravel this day.

Either way, my friend, remember that the absence of anxieties and fear is called faith. Where there is actual and 100% faith there is no doubt, fear, or worry. Faith is a growing thing. Over time and with practice and input it becomes greater, packing such a powerful punch. You know you’re gonna get knocked down from time to time. That’s life. But with faith…there is no doubt in all the fibers of your being on earth. You stand fearless, knowing there will be pain, which is unpleasant and uncomfortable…but you know in your heart…your SOUL. You know you can. You know who you are.

You know this because you know Him.

You know God.

He’s listening as you get into bed, and the rest of the time 24/7. Talking to Him can be as short and easy as “Help!” He knows what you need before you even ask.

The Creator of the Universe flung the shimmery stars into His velvety night sky, twinkling as diamonds. Like the moon, and the sun they testify to His great Power & Glory every moment in every day.

Close your eyes. No matter where you are. The eastern or western world. Persecuted, or tormented inside of yourself. God’s got this.

It’s just mind-blowing. You can’t go back.

It is in the darkest moments of life, or ‘the wilderness’ that we are able to really see God and just how Mighty & Powerful He really is…but also how loving. In the depths of depression and worries of life, God is with you. He’s there when you wake up at 3 a.m. and can’t sleep. Still listening, waiting for you to trust Him…and after that…its just mind-blowing. You can’t go back.
