Personal Journey

Do You Know What it’s like?

Have you ever had a friend come to you for advice or just looking for a shoulder to cry on? Maybe on some accounts you had no idea what to say. Maybe their pain was too heavy. Maybe you just could not relate at all, so all you could do was listen?

Jesus/Yeshua knows what it’s like every time.

Yeshua knows what the worst of the worst feels like.

Sometimes as human beings we just feel alone. Sometimes we feel like absolutely NOBODY gets it! We sit and scream in frustration. We grit our teeth and throw punches. Maybe you hang up on people… Maybe you don’t answer the door. Maybe you keep a journal. Maybe you pray. Whatever the case, we all suffer and have hard times in this life.  That is when you can look to The Cross and see that The Lord Jesus/Yeshua paid for you and every moment of pain is not in vain. God has plans for all of us. ♥

All this reminds me of these lyrics:

“When you feel like you’re alone in your sadness
And it seems like no one in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call my name and I’ll be there
You just call my name and I’ll be there.”   

Check out this song by Christian rock band Third Day called “Call My Name.”

“Call My Name” lyrics

It’s been so long since you felt like you were loved
So what went wrong
But do you know there’s a place where you belong
Here in my armsWhen you feel like you’re alone in your sadness
And it seems like no one in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call my name and I’ll be there
You just call my name and I’ll be there

The pain inside has erased your hope for love
But soon you will find
That I’ll give you all that your heart could ever want
And so much more

You just call my name
You just call my name

Call my name, say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive

Call my name, say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive

You just call my name
You just call my name
You just call my name now

The love I have for you is so alive
The love I have for you is so alive
You just call my name
You just call my name
You just call my name


All of this brings me to my point. The Lord started this blog post with His own Word. Here are a couple of Amazing Verses from The Bible. My personal favorite chapter in The Word of God is Isaiah 53 because I really appreciate how my Savior poured out His Soul, for my broken soul and all the rest of the brokenhearted. For ALL the world… ♥

Isaiah 53:11-12 King James Version (KJV)

11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.


 

Precious readers, you are beautiful. God loves you so much that He gave His only Begotten Son for you. In all honesty, I don’t fully understand it myself. Day by Day The Spirit of God teaches me and The Lord Yeshua Himself opens up His Heart and my eyes to help me understand The Cross and what He did for me, for ALL of the world. All of us!

I love Yeshua because He is so good, He is so tender. God became a man and took EVERYTHING for us, so The most Precious Fellowship between Father God (our Creator) and His Creation would be restored! It’s a learning process. The human heart can harden. The human heart can break. The soul can be broken. Our pain can clog up our feelings. This is why we read of Amazing verses like this one below:

Psalm 51:10  (KJV)

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Have you ever heard of being jaded?

According to Merriam-Webster,

Definition of jaded

1 : fatigued by overwork : exhausted

  • a jaded horse

2 : made dull, apathetic, or cynical by experience or by having or seeing too much of something

  • jaded network viewers
  • jaded voters

The Aerosmith song Jaded comes to mind. I am not promoting it, but I remember when I was a teenager and the song Jaded was a smash hit on mainstream radio. I recall the music video. According to ultimateclassicrock.com the video synopsis is this:

A young woman who’s numb to the touch of reality and eventually comes to her senses by escaping the decadence of her grand surroundings.

 

Lyrics to Jaded by Aerosmith

[Verse 1]
Hey j-j-jaded, you got your mama’s style
But you’re yesterday’s child to me
So jaded
You think that’s where it’s at
But is that where it’s supposed to be
You’re getting it all over me, ex-rated

[Chorus]
My my baby blue
Yeah I been thinking about you
My my baby blue
Yeah you’re so jaded
And I’m the one that jaded you

[Verse 2]
Hey j-j-jaded
In all it’s misery
It will always be what I love and hated

And maybe take a ride to the other side
We’re thinking of
We’ll slip into the velvet glove
And be jaded

[Chorus]
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m thinking about you
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m so jaded
And baby I’m afraid of you

[Verse 3]
Your thinking’s so complicated
I’ve had it all up to here

But it’s so overrated
Love and hated
Wouldn’t trade it
Love me jaded
Hey j-j-jaded
There ain’t no baby please
When I’m shooting the breeze with her
When everything you see is a blur
And ecstasy’s what you prefer

[Outro]
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m talking about you

My my baby blue
Yeah I’ve been thinking about you
My my baby blue
Yeah you’re so jaded
Baby
Jaded
Baby
You’re so jaded
Because I’m the one that jaded you


White Oleander

I like the above quote from The Movie White Oleander. That’s another blog post in itself, but I think that’s really cool. I can personally relate to that as well…

Glory to God, all of this stuff so far brings back even more discussion.

When this song came out, I was a very troubled young girl. I loved this song because that is how I felt. Jaded.

bulimiame

I was constantly being rejected by people, especially men (boys at the time) in the romantic sense of relationships. It all goes back to my testimony that The Lord revealed this year.

I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. All of these feelings ran on and on like a broken record until after many giant, heavy mistakes, The Lord intervened and saved me. He’s so Good! God has resurrected me in all my ashes, giving me His Beauty. I am far better off than when I was first broken. I am no longer jaded. I AM ALIVE.

I Praise The LORD for resurrecting my brain and intellect.

I Praise The LORD for healing and restoring my body and soul.

I Praise The LORD that He has made me FREE!

Freedom is for EVERYBODY and it’s FREE! Glory to God!

PRAISE YESHUA!  †

Suffering With GOD

Spiritleadme

JESUS is with you in the trials, on the darkest nights, and those mornings when you can’t stand to face the sunlight. There is hope for you, no matter what anybody says: your doctor, your parents, your kids, your family, friends or co-workers, people on the street and so on. GOD is The Great Physician, God knows your weaknesses and has the FINAL SAY!

Human beings make tons of mistakes every day and NONE of them are 100% reliable. We can only TRULY trust JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD AND THE SON OF GOD! Also, the enemy Satan and his army of demons, use other people and things to hurt us. Don’t take it personally when people slander you, use and abuse you, or insult you. The devil knows exactly where to shoot those fiery darts to try and attack your faith and trust in THE LORD! That’s why The Bible says in Ephesians 6 that we must use our shield of faith to quench those fiery darts of Satan when they come at us!

How does one strengthen their faith? Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, so read your Bible, seek The Face of God in prayer time, pray throughout the day to your God in The Name of Jesus Christ. After all God is our best friend and prayer is a conversation with our Maker! Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth! When you are filled with the Holy Spirit you don’t have to have a feel good beat to praise God Almighty because it truly comes from deep inside by The Spirit of God! You can feel His presence, just know He’s there and He loves to hear from His Child! Don’t forget fellowship with other believers at Church, Bible-studies, online, etc. We keep the fire going in our coming together!

Finally, like the poster says, our faith is made stronger in times of testing and trials. There are many things we go through in this life that make absolutely no sense or hurt with pain that seems unbearable. Just remember, when you’re at the end of your rope, that’s the perfect place to lean on your GOD and let Him lead you! He will PULL YOU OUT OF THE PIT. We just have to lean on Him and ask for His Grace and strength. Our God will fight for us. When we are weak He is strong! Though it may hurt for a while, our trust in The Lord is built and our faith strengthened while all along our relationship with Him grows ever so beautifully. We rely on our God and Maker, our Lord Jesus to get through these tough times. We are led by The Sweet Holy Spirit of GOD.

It’s gonna be okay. If you’re walking with Jesus, I promise. Be blessed in JESUS NAME!

If you do not know The Lord God, seek HIM NOW in JESUS alone ♥  †  ♥

HOPE

Hope
By Brother Ricky Yarbrough

 

What are you putting your hope in. Is it in yourself, other people, government, money, or other things of this world. Well; I must tell you, if your hope is in anything besides God and His Son Jesus Christ, then your hope is going to equal up to nothing more then a temporary, false, and disappointing hope. Because the Bible says in:

2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

So one shouldn’t put their hope on things seen. Because it’s only a temporary hope, that will soon fade away and be no more. But things which are not seen: like our soul, God and His Son Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, and heaven —these things are eternal and faded not away. So don’t put your hope or trust in people, and things of this world, more then the true hope, that only comes by God’s grace and through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.

So my hope is, that all people would put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The One who can give them not just hope in this life, but knowing after this life of ours has ended here on this earth; We that are saved, will be going to a much better place called heaven. Because our true hope and faith was not in this world, but was in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for our sins, and was buried, and God rose Him up on the third day, according to the scriptures.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

Proverbs 14:32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.

Proverbs 10:28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.

2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace.

1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

OMG!

“Oh my God!” is what *everyone* cries out in times of disaster or trouble…

This message was created nearly a year ago, but this is for NOW. God’s timing is not our timing. “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8

Brothers & Sisters in Christ, please share for the lost. The return of Christ is at hand!

2 Options

If people would just wake up and see all of the chaos around them (the majority censored on mainstream news or unreported). “What in the world is going on?” you might ask. The reason why is so simple. Human history is coming to a close, and that’s much easier to understand if you look into the Bible aka The Word of God. This is God’s story. It’s wrapping up and eventually the story of man and all the rest of God’s creation will be closed forever.

So, there’s basically 2 options.

  1. Come to know God, The Father, through His Son, Lord Jesus Christ (the only way to Heaven).

besaved

or…

2. Reject Jesus, and endure the worst times ever in the history of man.

God always finishes what He starts. Since God created it all, He will be the One ending the story. Not man. It’s all unraveling. The remaining prophecies in the Bible must be fulfilled. The Powers that be have planned destruction and turmoil, but they have no idea how just how terrible the things to come really are. God has the final say and He can and will use everything accordingly.

GOD is about to judge the world. The Tribulation. War, plagues, demons, darkness, inflation/financial collapse/coming Mark of The Beast and much more.  In case you haven’t read up, there’s going to be a one world monetary system. I’m sure that’s why there’s great economic disaster in a bunch of countries already. The elite powers that be must tear it all down to build this ONE. What will the new currency be? How will people be paying for things? Will there be an implanted RFID Chip put inside consumers? Without the Mark of the Beast you cannot buy or sell. So you cannot live comfortably or survive this Tribulation that’s about to spill over if you choose to follow God. Taking the Mark will damn your soul forever, and you can’t undo it. Storing up food probably won’t do you any good unless you’re a millionaire. Keep in mind Christians will be beheaded during this 7 year nightmare. You must not and cannot ever deny Jesus and make it into Heaven.

I urge you to consider coming to Jesus TODAY because any moment now, He will be returning for those that are His. The Children of God will not be here for the 7 years of hell on earth. Of course we aren’t guaranteed any more time in life. Any of us could die at any time. Are you ready for eternity?

I encourage you to look into these things asap! Get a copy of the King James Version Bible and seek Him for yourself.

Time’s going to go on either way. With or without Jesus. One thing’s for sure…

You will meet Him at some point.

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.

Literally Gonna Be Out of This World…

Jesus is coming soon for His Bride, are you ready? It’s literally going to be out of this world…

We’re going to a place where we are loved beyond measure with joy unspeakable. No more tears. No more will the people of this world tell us we’re not good enough or pretty enough. We will be changed in the blink of an eye. Our new bodies incorruptible and perfect. Immortal in Paradise.

Scars are gone. No more eating disorders or mental illnesses. No more disease.The paralyzed and amputees will walk and run. Living in perfect peace. No fear.

The deaf will hear the sweetest singing of angels, and the blind will behold the most breathtaking view from Mansions on high. And to be right there with The Almighty, and with our King, Lord Jesus Christ…I cannot imagine how great the comfort and relief.

Things are really shaking and quaking around the world. The final pieces of the last days puzzle are being put into place. Our Earth is about to endure a 7 year Tribulation. Hell on earth. People are protesting so strongly in Baltimore right now. I believe that the Baltimore riots taking place and those now happening in other cities are linked to all of the military activity in this Jade Helm 15 thing. If you haven’t heard, I suggest you look it up. Riots busting out right now nationwide + the Jade Helm/military events going on = no coincidence. A lot of us have been watching what’s going on behind the scenes. It’s about to get pretty crazy. Martial Law…?

So many people are oblivious to the reality that we live in today. This is far from the America I grew up in and knew as a child, and I’m 30 years old!

While the majority of the common people in the world sleep, the powers that be are wide awake.

Now is the time to prepare for the future. Hopefully you will consider Jesus right now if you have not done so already. It can save your life…eternally.

God’s Response to My Problems is So…Divine…

God's Response to My Problems is So...Divine...

In my short 28 years I have noticed that when I am patient and do things God’s way, the results are beyond sweet. The outcome is aligned perfectly, and in place with my life’s plan that He designed before He sent me here. I sigh relief tonight that my King blessed me with a great X-ray today. Nothing was broken or torn in my left arm! I just need to take Naproxen PRN for a week or so, and work on getting my range of motion back up to par.

Oh yeah, I have to mention that I have lost some weight since I was last weighed! I don’t own a scale anymore. I believe its best not to as I am in a transformation place once more, and I’m a former Bulimic. I lost around 6lbs in the last 3 weeks. Its progress! I am hopeful. I have been praying that God would amplify my attempts and results with this weight loss goal. I turn 29 this May and my ultimate fitness goal is to be truly in shape and maintaining that before I hit the big 3-0, hehe 🙂

Praise Him for always being at my side, and most of all for Jesus!

Whatever your dream may be, I declare it to be possible! In the Bible it says that we can do all things through Christ!

You can do it, my friends!

Sending you love tonight,

Amanda
