Reflections on HIS POWER Tonight.

I was brought to tears this morning when my mother reminded me of how when I was a little girl I would ask if I could someday run to the top of the yard like the rest of the kids in our family. I had terrible Asthma as a child. She would encourage and reassure me kindly that someday I would. My family relocated to another small town in Kentucky the summer before I began fifth grade. I was ten years old. I never ran the length of that yard but thanks be unto God for His unspeakable Gift! Because of what Jesus has done for me I am able to run way farther than that!

2018 has been my year of Breakthrough and He ain’t done yet so stay tuned! Beautiful things to come! I’ve never been more alive and free!

In the past year I’ve lost and kept off over 60 pounds. I was truly in bondage. Satan thought he finally had me in his web of lies and hurt, BUT GOD!!!

What was meant to drag me to Hell and destroy my life was instead used by The Lord to set me free and launch me to a whole new level and Calling in Him with great purpose and destiny!

Just a word of exhortation today for the weary.

God does hide His Face in certain seasons, but make no mistake about it, the devil can only go SO FAR. It’s like our Brother Marcus Rogers puts it so well in his book, Satan’s just a dog on a chain! So get FIRED up in The Holy Spirit y’all! There’s so much more than what you can see with your eyes of flesh! If you just hold on and BELIEVE Him….God will show up in ways you never imagined with a Powerhouse punch of a plan for your life!
Take it from me as a witness of most miraculous redemption! God truly has a good plan for your life! Be encouraged today and rise up like in this song I love so much!

Is It All Getting to You?

Are you tired of the same old thing? Are you frustrated with your relationships, your job (or lack of)? Are you depressed and living in despair? All is bleak, you’re broken and worn. Can’t take it anymore… What’s the point of it all?

The world is hurting right now. So many people are currently facing these dead-end type of situations and obstacles in their lives. More people than you can imagine are at their wits end right now. These problems are just monumental! They are like giant walls. We cannot get around nor climb over.

It’s no coincidence. Everything has gone haywire, but the world is too busy and spinning so fast that nobody can see what’s happening before their very eyes and in their very lives. And face it. We are distracted on every side with the smart phones, tablets, all sorts of electronic gadgets. Social Media..keeping up with everyone…spending lots of time online…movies, T.V. and all…

The point is that most people don’t want to deal with it. The truth isn’t always friendly. We don’t like being told we’re wrong-at least I know I don’t. But I was wrong about it all. Then I woke up to reality and saw the world for what it really is.  And what a rude awakening is was when I realized how deep the pit was. The rut that I found myself in. I couldn’t cut it with today’s world and I was self medicating.

Making changes in our lives is quite uncomfortable. But one day I answered the door when The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of The Living God Jehovah (The God of The Bible) came knocking. I could have ignored Him as many times before, but He came to me at a time when I just couldn’t make it anymore. I couldn’t do this thing called life. He set me free from the bondage of sin. The old me is gone forever and I’m forgiven, reconciled to God by the Blood our Lord Jesus shed on The Cross. He saved a wretch like me. If I can trust Jesus to get me out of the pit, you can too. It’s more than a decision. It’s a new way of life!

We come to God just as we are with our dirtiness and brokenness and open wounds. Then God makes us clean, BRAND NEW through Jesus Christ! You don’t come to God perfect. He accepts us as we are and erases the past!

Things are growing darker in this world today-and if you seek to know God through His Son Jesus, you will be able to see with spiritual eyes for yourself. Friend, things are only going to get worse and coming to Christ, belonging to God is the only way out. Jesus is going to come and take those that are His away from the looming 7 year Tribulation written of in the Bible, The Word of God.  The New World Order is complete but cannot be implemented until The true followers of Christ are taken out of the way. The new one-world government, currency, Mark of The Beast (in the right hand or forehead…see Revelation Chapter 13) and revealing of the Antichrist (most likely Barack Obama, see Bible Verses About The Antichrist),  Right now it’s considered “not cool” to stand for God through Jesus Christ, the ONLY WAY to God, unlike what Oprah and many other deceivers are teaching. It is considered hate speech to stand for an absolute right and believe in an absolute wrong.  Nobody wants to offend anyone…

The Time is NOW. We aren’t guaranteed another breath. Choose Jesus and eternity in Heaven this moment BEFORE The Rapture!

Those who are left behind after the Rapture of the Church (When we are caught up with Jesus) will be faced with an excruciating choice—accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the Antichrist and his followers. But those who come to Christ during this time, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8), will choose to endure, even to martyrdom.

Simple Sunday night Journal-Post

My heart is burning tonight.

I’m yearning for my Creator. I’m longing for Yahweh. So I’m venting out my heart concerning God, life & all in this blog post tonight. But before I get into what’s on my heart, I want to share some lyrics to one of the songs that I picked out, and had sung at my dad’s funeral last summer.

WHERE THE ROSES NEVER FADE

 I am going to a city
Where the streets with gold are laid
Where the tree of life is blooming
And the roses never fade

The Chorus:

Here they bloom but for a season
Soon their beauty is decayed
I am going to a city
Where the roses never fade

© 1929 Lyrics by Janie West Metzgar  [deceased]


 

The passion I have for Jesus is very real, very genuine, and exploded this year. My best friend of nearly 20 years came out with her sexual orientation, and I came out stronger, so boldly as an open, unashamed Christian, on fire for The Lord. We don’t talk anymore, but are still Facebook friends. I love her as I always have, but the things she posts there on social media are so hurtful to Christians, and to me. We all have our unique opinions & beliefs, but there comes a time when you just realize like in the Bible, what does the light have to do with the dark? She and I can be kind toward one another, but how can we hang out with so much out of sync? The issues we stand opposite on are the ones that I am most passionate about. I am not a hater, or a judgmental person. I just feel so alone in my faith-journey in a physical sense on this earth. However I must say that God Almighty has blessed me as I have met all kinds of really nice people here at WordPress, including one that has become a personal friend from a distance, Little Fawn.

My father went to be with the Lord last summer, but my mother is still a strong prayer warrior, a God-fearing Christian woman. She is my biggest fan in this world and my greatest support in all matters of life. She brought my dad, and my sister and I to the Church to know God. I am so grateful for my mom.

When we married nearly 6 years ago, my husband always said he believed in God and was open to everything I believed in and on, but not actually religious, nor a church member. Over the course of our 6 year marriage we have both grown so much as individuals, as all human beings do. His faith slowly began to decline awhile back, and now that his depression is worse, it is nearly diminished. Meanwhile, I have evolved into a more active Christian, actually studying the Bible, and doing so more. I am not a saint, I just feel alone. This is why marriage is so much more difficult for a Christian who marries an unbeliever, but love is love. I love him entirely.

In other matters in this world, I am ready for the Second Coming, and I believe we’re not too far off-but that’s another post.

Anyhoo, I just had to get that out of my system. A simple journal-post this Sunday night.

I pray everyone will have a wonderful week! God bless your health, your family/relationships, work and all 🙂

If you ever feel alone and need someone to talk to, just message me, I’m always here for anyone that wants to talk about anything.
