Are you hurting?

You may be thinking right now, “I’ve made a mess of my life.” Listen to this truth. GOD uses our mistakes, the broken pieces of our hearts and our pasts for His Glory! If you simply surrender to Him, acknowledge you are a sinner and Jesus is The Son of GOD, the only Way to The Father. And repent, turn from your old ways, the things you used to do. The things that led to your downfalls and sufferings. The things that make you cringe. You can be made new. The scars remain on your body, but on the inside of you something so POWERFUL and SUPERNATURAL happens when you call upon the Mighty Name of The LORD JESUS CHRIST! The Son of The LIVING GOD will set you free! The things that have held you back from so long will be set aside by The Most High. You will never be the same. Salvation is free for ALL who thirst. Since I first tasted that Living Water I’ve never been the same…oh there IS POWER in the NAME of JESUS! BE set free today, precious one! Save not only this life, but what matters. ETERNAL LIFE. Where will you spend eternity? There’s so much more than this life. Even if you’re one of the few that make it to 100. This is nothing compared to forever with no end. Don’t put it off. Make the best decision of your life right now while you still can. Jesus is waiting in anticipation, listening in matchless love. Be blessed in Jesus’ Name.

It’s Personal.

What makes it different when your heart aches for a loved one or friend that’s having surgery for some type of medical/health complication? …When you see a featured article online about a terminally ill child who lives life simply and has only one wish, and a Go Fund Me?

What makes it different when the evening news reports a rising death toll of 5,000 in a nation oceans away from your cozy piece of home? …When you read the Obituaries in the paper and see a familiar name(s)?

When you see a homeless man in a movie on television? When your eyes meet with a homeless man on the street beside you?

When you see a LOST Dog Poster taped to a street light? …When your dog is lost?

What’s the difference?

It’s personal.

But the thing is, It’s totally personal. BECAUSE EVERY HUMAN BEING (every person on earth) MATTERS.

You may never have your name on the Walk of Fame and in lights. You may never win a trophy or receive any honors or rewards. You may never be told “I love you.” Maybe you don’t think anyone has ever loved you or you don’t feel loved. You could be in a crowded room and all alone inside. Scared.

However, somebody does love you. He’s pretty awesome and quite intriguing. He loves to send you special things along the way, when you least expect them. He’s ever so generous and wants to experience this journey called life with you at your side as long as you live. It gets even better…

He wants you to come and live with Him forever. Where He is there are no more tears.

Jesus loves you just as you were the only one.

And It’s Personal.

Let Go.

Let Go.

Lately, I’ve been praying for a restoration in my life. I think what I really need to be praying for is a transformation instead. I need my God to lead me out of the wilderness-I’ve been wandering for far too long, and I’ve grown so weary…
My heart longs for peace. A sense of comfort and relief I’ve never known.

There was an earthquake in Chile yesterday and in Los Angeles, California today, and I think in Japan the other day? I am not sure. My memory isn’t as great as it used to be. North Korea was firing missiles or something today it said on Yahoo News. Then of course, our friends in Ukraine are still struggling, and Mr. Putin is still power hungry. I haven’t read any updates on that situation today as I have slept most of today.

I know God will be back for us. Jesus will be sent to earth to retrieve The Church, His Bride. It will be a True Homecoming for some. For others, not so much. The judgement is not up to man. When Jesus is coming back, none of us know, and He doesn’t even know. He’s just waiting for God to say the word. To bring us home. We are all accountable for our own soul, alone. I am trying to be better. Sometimes my moods rule my behavior as I’ve been struggling with Bipolar disorder lately.

Every ounce of my being is screaming out for the Lord right now! This world is in such turmoil in the very moments I write this. There are people I know that are provoked to anger when I mention things like this. They don’t want to hear this. One person in particular because the things of this world are all that he has…

God doesn’t ask for much. One day a week for Church, assembling together with our family in Christ, remembering our Dear Savior in Communion, and prayer. Songs of praise. Bible study, and a message. Some people go to Church twice on Sunday for two services or something, and to Bible studies mid week. Whatever the case, the amount of time that most of us devote to our God is miniscule in comparison to the time we spend watching TV, Social Media (raising my hand), sports, extracurricular activities of all sorts, our hobbies, maybe even what we’re good at. Lets use our talents to glorify The Father above that loves us! We must let our lights shine so that people will know God, through us, and Glory will be to Him! You may be the only ‘Bible’ anyone ever reads…

Jesus Christ. A friend that sticketh closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). Our Savior. My bones ache for deliverance. All the people of this world are facing suffering of various sorts. Some go without food and drink, shelter, safety, friends, there are so many hurts on the inside and not just to the physical body…the list goes on. We all need His healing. Lets pray for one another, for Beyond Compare are the things that await the faithful in Christ, than what’s going on down here.

God bless you, dear friends.

Jump In! The Water’s Much Nicer with Confidence In The Lord…

Jump In! The Water's Much Nicer with Confidence In The Lord...

Lets make March memorable. This is our year! Go the extra mile for someone, take a chance on love, open up, make your voice heard, and be a voice for the voiceless. Let go, just like this little guy did! Jump in!

I Praise God that I’ve made it through all of the troubles and negative thoughts this past week. I was even tempted by the devil himself or dark forces that be to go inside the gas station that I was at and blow 20 dollars on scratch offs. In case you haven’t read, I am a former gambling addict. I had self control. Getting back in the car, I thought to myself in response to the temptation, “Don’t you know who my Father is???”

The Joy of being a Christian is so big, and so awesome! Being one of God’s Children makes life exciting when you’re down to your last dime, opens your eyes (spiritually) so you see everything in a new light, and through fervent prayer, conversations with The Lord can really and truly change your life in such an amazing way! It brings hope in your darkest hour… Ultimately redemption through the blood of Jesus Christ, The Son of God…is everything. Because of His Sacrifice on The Cross, we are able to have a relationship with God.

My previous post was a very dark one. I sat down late last night and took all of the hurt that boiled inside of my soul all day, and I just poured it out-all over my keyboard. As I said, we are all human, and we all make mistakes. I’m not Superman. I turned to God last night before going to bed and processed it all with Him in prayer. I sat there and cried in the dark. I was so disappointed in myself, and I knew I let Him down. No matter what, God still loves me, and you. All of you! I called upon our Father’s forgiveness, through Jesus, and asked for a comfort–the best kind that exists…that comes from above. Spiritual wounds cannot be healed as easily as physical ones (at least without God). Ever think of that?

Something to think on, dear friends! Happy Weekend!

What Comfort Looks Like.

What Comfort Looks Like.

Photo, courtesy of my husband, here are our 2 lovely daughters, Bella (brown and white) and Lou-Lou (black and white). Bella is 2 years old and Lou Lou is 4. Lou is actually Bella’s biological aunt. Hehe…Both dogs are from the same human family we adopted them from as babies. Both dogs have the softest fur, waggly tails, and biggest hearts ever!
There are so many things that human beings find comfort in…our very own FUR-BABIES happens to be my number 1 choice as for now!!! hehe They soothe me, they move me to be the best mommy and person I can be.! They love me for who I am on the inside, and they see my soul, as I see theirs. Thank God above for blessing us as mortals with animals, or his creation to love and be loved in return by!!! 🙂
