Are You Fed Up?

Are you fed up and tired cuz you just can’t seem to get it all right?
Well, hey…That’s alright, because HE DOES!!!

Ezekiel 36:26-27 (KJV)

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

Just ask in The Mighty Name of Jesus! †

The Blessing of a New Week. Another day. Breathing. Freedom. Life.

On the darkest of days, and loneliest of nights…when your head hits the pillow.

You’re replaying what happened. The things you wish you hadn’t said, over and over in your mind. Mistakes and heartaches.

But you know, just when you’ve pretty much given up…God in Heaven says you can do this, you can overcome.

When you’re baptized and receive the Holy Spirit who comes to dwell within you, you’re a force to be reckoned with.

Thus, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

I know this concept is huge, but because the Cross was enough-that Jesus’ Blood covers all sin, and in Him (alone) there is Salvation. Jesus Christ paid the debt of SIN for all mankind. So, if you choose to accept Jesus and be baptized, you’re then bought and paid for in FULL! Walking with Him and living faithful all the days of your life will be ever rewarding some day very soon. Oh, what it’s like to be loved and cared for in such a beyond-profound way… 🙂

The Secret & The Universe…and God

Remember a decade or so ago when the world was introduced to The Secret? Of course it wasn’t really a secret. The Law of Attraction has been around for a very long time. I believe author Rhonda Byrne just had a new way of presenting it, full of mystery and intrigue. The movie/video was very well done. To have quantum physicists and great philosophers at the same time backing the blowing concept that we can create our own destiny and get what we want…was just awesome. So awesome that in fact,

This book is rated 3.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon and is the #1 Bestseller in the New Thought category.

The description of The Secret book as seen on Amazon:

Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.

In this book, you’ll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life — money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You’ll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that’s within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.

The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers — men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

In the same category on Amazon is the book:

Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams: The Epic Guide To Unlimited Power

A portion of its Amazon description: “This is one of the most powerful books you shall ever read. With research from quantum physics, psychology, biology and behavioral epigenetics, as well as many great spiritual teachings, ‘Moving Through Parallel Worlds’ will guide you on a path to achieving your grandest ambitions. The title, ‘Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams,’ is literal – based on the ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics,’ and it is also a metaphor suggesting positive life transformation. This very night, you shall be reading and then applying the concepts in this book, and that moment will be the starting point of your mastery of wealth, romance, creation, and mastery of all things in the physical world.”

I picked this title out randomly to share alongside The Secret. The 2 books are similar, so they’re in the same category.

When The Secret made its debut around a decade ago, I was in college. Impressionable, eager to find love, success and all of the worldly possessions a woman could want. I had just broken up with my boyfriend and longest relationship, so my ears were itching for something like this. The idea that I could manipulate my life and control my personal success and HAPPINESS…was thrilling. I read the book, bought the DVD, made the ‘Vision Board’ the whole 9 yards. I was certain I could have anything I wanted at all because I was in the know! I had found the secret!

So… Why am I sharing this post?

I’m sharing the truth. Truth is…there is NO secret. Perhaps some of the things within the book are true, but certainly not as a whole.

I have grown and changed tremendously as an individual these past ten years. Hindsight is 20/20. Now I see that I clearly took the bait. This whole secret thing is not from God, nor does it have anything to do with Him. The word “god” is a broad term in today’s world. This way anything goes and everyone gets what they want. In the case of The Secret, perhaps I should say, the Universe…

This book says there are no rules according to the universe .. you provide the feelings of having it now and the universe will respond…if you turn it over to the universe, you will be surprised and dazzled by what is delivered .. this is where magic and miracles happen…Create a Vision Board .. pictures of what you want to attract .. every day look at it and get into the feeling state of already having acquired these wants.

‘Nuff said.

This book is not for Christians. It’s the New Age movement…the lie from the pits of Hell and the devil himself (like in the Garden of Eden) that we can be like God or as gods. We cannot have any other “gods”…I just thought I’d put this out there.

God bless everyone, and as Jesus said, “Be not deceived.”

Jesus Christ is the one and only way to God the Father and to Heaven. In fact, He’s coming soon. Bible prophecy is falling off the pages going full speed ahead. Most are asleep to what’s really going on. The One World Government/New World Order is ready to go, just not implemented yet. Ever wonder why those jets are spraying chemicals way up high in the sky on fair, sunny days? Everything we know now must be brought down for the powers that be to have their way with a one world currency etc. Economic collapse is inevitable. If you are left behind or reading this after millions of people have disappeared, Don’t take the chip!!! The Mark of the Beast (looks like it may be the RFID implant under the skin) which will be put in the right hand or the forehead, will make you hell bound. Even if you have it removed. Read Revelation Chapter 13 in the Bible. You will read about the Antichrist and False Prophet. I encourage you to seek out the King James Bible. If you don’t have one, you can read it online at any of these links.

If you do not have The Holy Spirit of God living inside of you, you cannot understand it nor be saved. The way to get the Holy Spirit and to be saved is through Jesus Christ The Son of God:

besaved

Acts2.38

End Time Headlines

Seek Jesus today. No one is promised another breath at any moment. And it’s about to really become a nasty nightmare down here on earth. Jesus is coming for those that are His, for The Tribulation is about to begin any moment now. The Son of God will be returning for the faithful One’s that belong to Him as His Church is not appointed to Wrath. Please look into things for yourself today. I pray you will.

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.

A New Heart

The Power of God is beyond our understanding. The things He has in store for those that love Him and obey is mind-blowing. It’s out of this world. Literally…

No matter how much pain you are in, no matter how broken your life seems to be…God can restore you. He will.

Praise His Holy name…

I will never, ever be the same.

Forgiveness Is Not An Option…

Forgiveness Is Not An Option...

It’s a command.

Praise Jesus for what He did for us…Wow…
Tonight there’s a sigh of relief as I asked God to forgive me of my sins. In particular, I asked Him to forgive me for handing the keys to my mind, my life to the enemy. You might ask how it is that I did this…
If you’ve been following me for a long time, or have been through some of my blog archives you will find that I am Bipolar, and have a major allergy to Caffeine. This allergy is primarily mental or psychological. Caffeine leads to an actual Hypo-mania. I haven’t heard of any other Bipolars having this problem. I’m sure somebody out there does.

Anyways, it immediately sets up grandiose thinking, so I begin the job search 9 out of 10 times and have applied to tons of colleges/universities online and paid some app. fees when at the time I wasn’t able for studying or college. I’ve even signed multiple promissory notes for student loans, but it all worked out because I never actually ‘attend’ I just apply. It’s crazy!
A third example…I always become spontaneous upon Caffeine consumption-so sometimes I go on spending sprees and purchase things that are completely irrelevant to my life, and sometimes anger my husband, as some of those purchases were scratch off lottery tickets. I am a former gambling addict as well. That’s another story.

This stimulant hinders my judgement not long after consumption. I knew this when I ordered a chocolate, double fudge cookie-dough blizzard. I knew this when I ate brownies that were made, I knew this when I drank down a small Coke from Sonic in secrecy in the Wal Mart parking lot. I was guilty. I’d betrayed myself, my body and mind. Plus I exposed the Holy Spirit within me to sin! So, I went to the Cross.

I asked God to forgive me of my succumbing to the temptation of Caffeine consumption which is sin, and leads to another slew of sins. I asked to be washed in the Blood of The Lamb for them all. God is Love, and with God comes Jesus, with Jesus comes God, and Peace. Peace in His forgiveness and the Hope of Salvation! 🙂

I have been feeling down lately as I have not seen my mother and dad in nearly 3 months. This is the longest we’ve ever been apart. I’m praying that God will unite us again on earth before any of us pass on. I am a very family centered person. I’ve felt lost for a while…with this void in me. A void that only a mommy or daddy can fill…Praise Yahweh for my parents!!! I love you GOD!!!

You and I must forgive others as Jesus forgives us. The ability to say that prayer, and close with “In Jesus’ Name, Amen” is beyond a privilege. We were bought at a price! I know sometimes its hard, and that there are various forms of hurt and sin, some more horrific than others to us. Still, we were commanded to forgive. Its a daily effort on our journey. We have to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
God bless everyone tonight. Sending love your way.
If you are hurting, open your mouth and let the pain flow in the form of words to our Creator. He hears. Seek Him through Christ, His Son, and He will deliver!

Surfing The Web For Something I’m Sure Not to Find There…

I’m scrambling around on my desk, looking for pen, paper…multiple tabs are open on my Firefox browser. From one idea to the next, from Craigslist to online gaming websites, I search. I need something to do because I am unemployed and going out of my mind. Blogging can only take up so much of my time. I am far too moody to hold down a job, but intelligent and charming enough to land any that I desire and qualify for… Oh, at all the jobs and schools I have fooled over the years! Too bad I inherited my daddy’s dark Bipolar disorder. You can have something under control, and still not be ‘the same.’

I just stopped. I closed all of those open tabs on my Firefox browser because I figured it out. What I am really looking for is love, friendship, companionship, happiness, joy, satisfaction, and contentment. None of these things are on the world wide web. All of the X Box games, online gaming sites or subscriptions, and getting my XBOX out of pawn don’t fix this. All of the sweet little kittens, puppies and other animals online for adoption or for sale are but a band-aid. There is a real problem here, folks. I have 2 dogs, and 2 birds. I still seek affection and companionship in even more animals, which I do not need, and cannot afford to support. If I were untreated for Bipolar disorder and so on, I would probably been an animal hoarder. I guess its because of all the wonderful things that our furry friends represent which we lack, we seek in them.

There is a void in me, an emptiness that doesn’t seem to be able to be filled with any hobby, object, or anything under the sun. I have been praying about the matter. Though my faith is strong, there are still dark moments such as these, when I am vulnerable, and long for deliverance.

My husband spent the day out with his brother, came home with dinner, ate in his aquarium room, and I ate in my little treadmill/office room. He goes out to smoke and comes in to say goodnight. He went to bed. Its getting dark outside. Now all of those things I mentioned are growing and becoming stronger-those feelings of sadness, loneliness and boredom.

Life is a journey. I’m going to hold onto the rails while we sail over this tide.

God bless you all tonight!

Amanda
