Be super encouraged today in Jesus Name!
Praise God! This will make you smile.
Be encouraged today in Jesus Name! 🌼
It is written in The Word of God…
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Be educated today in The Name Of Jesus!
God wants to set YOU FREE Today!
The freedom journey is different for everyone and not always so short or simple, but it’s worth it. It’s worth it because through the deliverance and healing/inner healing process we are able to draw closer to Father God, The Lord Jesus Christ and The Precious Holy Spirit! We become more like Jesus through the freedom process! It’s such a wonderful feeling and immeasurable blessing to do this through and WITH GOD! The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob! The greatest Love Story ever told, from Genesis to Revelation!
No matter who you are or where you are, Jesus will meet you right NOW! He loves you sooo much!
God loves us too much to leave us where He finds us though. Surrendering your life to God through His Son Jesus is the best and most important decision you will ever make.
I know personally that pain and trauma can hinder us from understanding and believing God’s Love for us. Praise God for Jesus though! Because of Jesus’ Love and The Power of what He did for you and me on The Cross I have personally tasted this Blessed inner healing of the human soul! You can have this priceless blessing too for yourself because it is for all mankind. I pray this blog post encourages you today.
Know YOU ARE LOVED! Right now! ❤️
🎶There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
I don’t know what it is
Something’s wrong with our eyes. We’re seein’ things in a different way
And God knows it ain’t his
It shore ain’t no surprise Livin’ on the edge🎶
“Livin’ on the Edge” is great song by the rock band Aerosmith. The song was written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Mark Hudson. It was released in 1993 as the first single from the band’s commercially successful album “Get a Grip” This song talks about how the world is a crazy place, but people remain stuck in their routines and refuse to change. I feel “Living on the Edge” by Aerosmith is a song about risk taking. It’s a song that encourages us all to step out from where you are and to take a risk. The song has undertones of deep disatisfaction within it. Today I am reading Hebrews 11:8-10.
(By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God)
This morning, I am exploring the theme of “Risktaking” and one of the the greatest risk takers was Abraham. As Believers we like nothing better than playing it safe. We are those who when we are confronted by the risks of life first gather as many facts as possible, view the options, and make choices so that we are in control and reasonably certain of the outcome. Abraham did not gather the facts, view the options, was not in control and could not forsee the outcome. He took a risk. YeHoVaH/God’s perspective is that there are times for the followers of Yeshua/Jesus to take risks! There are times that we are encouraged to say yes despite what we can see in front of us. When YeHoVaH/God is the one asking us to step out of our comfort zone we can consider ourselves safe in His hands and safe under His direction just like Abraham in the passage. From YeHoVaH/God’s viewpoint, there is no uncertainty, because He has control over all things and He will never fail to accomplish His good purposes (Eph. 1:11). Facebook friends, I am dealing with this situation as you read this, spiritual growth is stunted when we refuse to obey YeHoVaH/God. Sometimes that involves leaving what is safe or familiar and like Abraham taking a journey into the unknown. But risks must be taken, because the greatest risk in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow or love. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave, he has forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free. Amen?
Facebook friends, I came out of closet this morning. I looked around at this world and scurried back in.
🎶 Weave the rainbow in your eyes,
Quiet evening lullaby,
Cross your heart to never die,
Broken on the wood.
Silenced by the deafening roar,
Driven from the nether shore,
Violent tremors, wars, and more,
No, not one is good🎶
In Matthew, Yeshua/Jesus was speaks about going into your prayer closet. Have you ever thought about how strange it is to talk about praying in a closet? Your closet might have vacuum cleaners, umbrellas, winter coats, and mothballs in it. The word closet actually refers to a storage room. A storage room wasn’t made for prayer, it was made for junk. In order to make it a place of prayer, you have to push other things outside and make space. It takes work to have a prayer for me closet. It takes work to take the junk and clutter out of your schedule. There are a lot of things that push their way into our lives, and we have to push them out. If you are going to have time with YeHoVaH/God every day, it takes work. Clear your schedule, because it’s more important to be with Him. Remove the clutter and simplify your life. Then that junk room of time, that cluttered closet of your week, will turn into a tabernacle of prayer. It all begins when you press into the presence of YeHoVaH/God through the mothballs.
🎶Leaves are falling all around
It’s time I was on my way
Thanks to you I’m much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it’s time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it’s headed my way
Ah, sometimes I grow so tired
But I know I’ve got one thing I got to do
This week I have been listening to Robert Plant’s Band of Joy. The golden rock god burrows deeper into gothic American roots music. Trading in T-Bone Burnett and Alison Krauss for Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin, thereby finding the only sound that matters. My favorite track is Angel Dance and a new rendition of Ramble On. This album has brought me much Joy this week. Who doesn’t want Joy in their life? Isaiah 55:12 says, “You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace.” The word “led forth” in Hebrew, is “yabal.” Yabal also means to “flow”, like a river flows. YeHoVaH/God’s Spirit is likened to water that flows. So, when you’re living in His Spirit and being led by Him, you’re going to flow. Is your life characterized by flowing or is it being driven, pressed, and compelled by all the things that are happening around you? Are you rushing and running but not being led? If you’re not being led, then you’re not going to flow. Anger, jealousy, fear, and depression have no flow. A life that’s driven, forced, and pushed has no flow because it’s not led. But if you’re led by YeHoVaH/God, you have the quality of flowing. Love, faith, mercy, kindness, Joy, and peace flow. That’s how you are to go through life, flowing in His Spirit. Don’t be driven, but instead be led and be Joyful. For when you are led by His Spirit, your life will flow like a river. Then you shall go out with Joy and be led forth with peace. Amen?
11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

Some R & R tonight… Throwback hits of years past take on new meaning in my life now!
I am so blessed.
I am SO ALIVE!!!
JESUS/Yeshua is the only answer! My life is so radically different because of what The LORD has done! He saved my life many times and my soul!
I am NO longer cursed because of what YESHUA did on The CROSS for ALL of us!
In the past year I’ve lost over 60 pounds! Praise THE LORD all the earth!
Oh my goodness! I was so blessed for 32 years that even when I was cursed it was just phenomenal! ♥
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
I pray this encourages someone tonight!
God will set you free too! It’s only in His Son!!!
🎶Move on, that’s what she told me
Move on, keep on movin’
Move on, oh oh, oh
Move on, I’m leavin’ on my way🎶
Of course I owned all the Kiss solo albums, Ace Frehley’s being my favorite followed by Paul, Peter and Gene. In reading the Book of Hebrews today it reminded me of one of Paul’s songs from 1978. We as believers are told that we’re partakers of a heavenly calling. Yet, we often forget that a calling has two parts. In order to get “to” our calling we must MOVE ON “from” something else. We can’t always see where we’re going to end up in our calling, but we can see what we need to MOVE ON away from. What is it that your calling is moving you away from? Start right now by MOVING ON from that which is hindering you, and you’ll move towards the goal. If you’re to become pure, you must MOVE ON away from impurity in your life. If you’re to become a loving person, you must MOVE ON from unlovingness in your life. If you want to become a holy vessel for YeHoVaH/God, start right now by MOVING ON away from that which is unholy. You are called to glory- that’s the “to” of your call. The glory doesn’t start when you get “to” where you’re going, but when you come away “from” the old life. So, start with the “from” of your calling and YeHoVaH/God will take care of the “to.” Amen?
As human beings we weren’t created to be alone. We were created to Fellowship with God and with other people.
This morning I listened to a song that stirred up emotions and pain of heartaches in the past. I thought I’d write about it this morning…
I was a very lonely teenager. I was a very brokenhearted girl.
All I ever wanted was to be accepted and loved.
That’s all I ever wanted as an infant and a small child.
The LORD has revealed so much to me this year that answers so many questions.
The pain I’ve been dealing with for years is now being dealt with by The Holy Spirit.
I was cursed and as a result of it I experienced rejection over and over for 32 years.
I am 33 now and so very blessed.
I’m dealing with the pain today.
I feel it everyday in my body and in my soul during this season of inner healing.
I wound up trapped in an abusive marriage that God never intended for me to be in.
I tried to leave my ex-husband many times but I could never get away. It wasn’t until this year when God Himself intervened that I was able to break free from that unholy marriage and so much more.
Who hasn’t ever been lonely or felt rejected?
Throughout the years, my break-up style was to throw away everything that had anything to do with the boyfriend that had dumped me (usually they broke up with me) the night of the break up so I could wake up and not feel as bad the next day.
Here I am in high school. The chained woman in my artwork is actually part of my soul. I had no idea that I was in such bondage in the very depths of my being.
Thanks be unto GOD for His Unspeakable Gift! Yeshua saved me. I didn’t know all of this was even real and I never would have known it applied to me had He not revealed it by The Holy Spirit.
My whole life I’d try extra hard to make the boy/man love me in every relationship and EVERY time, even in the abusive marriage I was in for 9 years, they’d let me down.
I would be THE ONE buying THEM gifts. It’s like I was selling myself.
Every woman wants to be adored! Every woman wants a man to BUY HER gifts!
Who doesn’t wanna feel special? I never did.
Yep. I have been burning bridges for years… and it’s tiresome.
Yeshua said He’d carry all of this…
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light

Yeshua/Jesus died on the Cross for ALL of us for ALL sins.
He offers His PERFECT REST for ALL of mankind!
No matter who you are or what you’re dealing with, you too can find REST for YOUR SOUL today!
The same Cross that covers lying and adultery covers homosexuality as well.
We are all loved by God. He is NO respecter of persons.
The LORD is ministering to my very soul everyday. He’s showing me that He ALONE is God! He is ALL I need! Anybody else in my life can only compliment what He is doing. Nobody ELSE and NOTHING else can COMPLETE me. ONLY GOD can complete any of us.
Brother Marcus Rogers does an amazing job of explaining this concept in his book Through The Fire to Be On Fire.
I have just begun reading Brother Marcus’ Testimony in his book from Amazon and I, like many others, am being so blessed by it! Check it out here and get your own copy. Support Brother Marcus as he’s doing amazing things for The LORD!
ALL women must know that their worth is ONLY in The CROSS.
It doesn’t matter how many people have broken your heart.
Our identity can only be rooted in THE CROSS and what GOD did for us!
Our worth as women or as human beings is ONLY determined by The CROSS!
No matter how many may have broken up with you and no matter how many times you have been rejected… God LOVES you and has a plan for YOUR life! ♥
As you read this, I pray The Lord God Almighty blesses you one hundredfold.
Have an awesome day! God bless 🙂
Boston sang “Don’t look back” on WLS in Chicago late in the summer of 1978. (I was glued to my AM radio back then) WLS was about all I listened too. How can you beat Larry Lujack? Long before Boston sang “Don’t look back” there was the Apostle Paul was telling Believers, in so many words, ”Don’t look back!” Paul writes in his letter to the Philippians, ”Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the upward call of YeHoVaH/God in Yeshua/Jesus.” His word to us is, ”Don’t look back!” Like the Apostle Paul we must forget ”what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead.” There is a natural, human tendency for us to look back. And there can be great value in looking back. We look back to learn. We look back to affirm the places and faces and circumstances from whence we have come. Facebook friends, ”It’s mainly for some clue to where I am going that I search through where I’ve been, for some hint as to whom I am becoming or failing to become that I delve into what used to be.” So there is, indeed, a time for us to look back, if that looking back carries with it a positive purpose. At the same time Paul tells us to ”forget what lies behind.” But Paul is saying don’t look back in a way that will keep us from going forward. Don’t look back in a way that makes us prisoners of our past, because looking back in the wrong way enslaves us or enslaves others to past mistakes and sins. Looking back in the wrong way does not allow the healing of old hurts and painful memories. Even looking back at past accomplishments and successes can keep us from discovering what lies ahead. So the advice that’s given to us is, ”Don’t look back!” Imagine how miserable the Apostle Paul would have been if he had not put behind the sins and mistakes of his past. Think back on Paul’s earlier years.
Before his conversion Paul was named Saul, and he was the number one enemy of the church. He was responsible for the gruesome persecution and even the murder of people who professed faith in Yeshua/Jesus. When Stephen, the great witness for Yeshua/Jesus, was stoned to death, Luke tells us that ”Saul was consenting to his death.” In Acts, Luke goes on to say ”that a great persecution arose against the church” and ”Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.” Paul’s past was cluttered with atrocious acts of evil. And he wasn’t perfect after he became a Believer. He, like us, continually struggled with his sinfulness. Yet he was forgiven. Through the grace of YeHoVaH/God Paul was forgiven. He affirmed in his letter to the Colossians, ”He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Paul was able to forget the awfulness of his past because YeHoVaH/God had forgotten and forgiven Paul’s past. In Hebrews Yeshua/Jesus tells us that He will ”remember our sins and misdeeds no more.” There’s no reason for us to remain enslaved to the mistakes and sins and shortcomings of our past. We don’t have to continually feel guilty and ”second rate” because of something we did years ago or even yesterday. YeHoVaH/God in Yeshua/Jesus has forgiven us, and all we do is accept His forgiveness and say ”thank you.” It’s as simple as that. Don’t look back at past mistakes! Amen?
