The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. ~Exodus 15:2
Praise God! I found out yesterday. I can still use my title “Deeply Rooted in Him” I am so relived by that… However I still need a new cover… The one I have is to small. I was not planing on publishing this book first. Those of you who know me Know I have been working motley on “Miracles Still Happen Today” But God has put the feeling of priority on this one… I am in the process of editing the the book fast as time will alow me to so I can send it to someone else to edit…. While I do this need help Making a cover… I have a few ideas.. Right now this will only be an E-book in Nook and Kindle format. If it does well, which I am sure it will, Thanks to God. Then I’ll work to make it a Paper back as soon as possible…

Have you ever experienced technical difficulties like this before? Not just with your computer but in life as well? Things seem to be going so well and then suddenly everything crashes and falls apart and you find yourself staring at a black screen or brick wall?

So you do what you know to do, you start examining everything that has gone on in the recent, and maybe not so recent past. You have to find a reason. Why isn’t anything working right for you? Was it because you didn’t keep your word? Was it your parents fault for not raising you the way you though you should. Was it your ex who hurt you so much? Are you getting enough sleep? Are you eating right? Are you pretty, hansom, ugly?? Why, Why Why????
Maybe I should change how I do things.. That’s what I’ll do!
And it works for a while. Things seem to be great, but then problems start coming up again. Nothing too bad. Nothing you can’t handle; or work around. That is until ….
(Black screen of death, possible loud shrill sounds)
What!! Not again! Why is this happening to me! What did I do wrong to deserve this??
“Not a thing. But you are looking in the wrong places for your answers. Come to me. Trust Me. Lean on Me” – God
“I do… I did.”
“If you trusted Me, then you would give Me your worries, your cares, Your concerns. You do not have t carry the burdens alone. You do not have to stress. I want you to be happy, to have joy not sorrow”
“I have given them to you Lord, Time and again.”

“Yes you have, yet you pick it up again. You can’t solve the issues on your own. I know it for a fact. That is why I AM; here. I can help you, I can handle it. But these things take time. I cannot give you an answer instantly, constantly. Some things take longer than others. You may not be ready for what you want like you think you are. Some things need preparations so you can hold on to it once I give it to you. I have a master plan.
“Then God please tell me what to do, I want to follow you. I need to be happy, I crave purpose.”
“I love you, My child. Rest in me, and I will lead you”
“I will trust you completely, My God, My King, My Father!”
20And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: 21For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. 22But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
We easily forge that we need faith to make miracles; But you also have to believe your worth it! And you are!! Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.
Everything we really need, or want, we have that desire for it to happen, or for us to get that thing… But a lot of times when it comes to our-selves, our physical, mental, emotional, needs… We easily forget that faith we have because we feel lost and hopeless. We lose sight of the good and think; I guess this is how it is… Well it doesn’t have to be like that!!
Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. “
God seems so far away at times.. But He isn’t. He is your best friend, your loving Father, the one who knows you best. Keep that in mind… God is just waiting for you to lean on Him and ask Him for help.. He loves you! Psalm 94:18 I cried out, “I am slipping! “But your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.
I can’t help you ask God, or lean on Him. But I can tell you He is there and waiting for you! Oh! How much He loves you! Imagine a hug from the best huger you know and imagine the comfort 10x better and the warmth10x warmer…. God’s love is like that but even better. All we need to do is call out to Him. God, Jesus, the Holy spirit! And plead the blood of Jesus over our body, over our need and have FAIT that it will be done. Make sure you end your Prayer “In Jesus Name” or it is not complete…. Acts 4:30, “By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.”
How easy it is to forget the power in the name of Jesus…. When we have faith, and don’t give up.. Miracles Happen!! It may not happen when you want, but in God’s perfect timing it will happen, and usually when we least expect it! Phlippians 4:13 All things are possible through Christ Jesus!
Go Rest in His arms, trust in the Lord, and have a great Faith filled future!
I have notice so many people are hungry now days. Not hungry by the lack of food, but emotionally, mentally, and physically. People are searching for something that will fill where they are lacking. But in things that won’t really help. Such as: Sex, alcohol, gambling, false idols.
We as the human race are at the time of major changes personally and globally. Change is hard and so many people are looking for something to cling to sustain them, especially, now around the holidays.
I noticed around Christmas I begin to think about the year past, all I didn’t accomplish, achieve, and am still lacking… I specifically seem to dwell on failures and what I don’t have yet in my life. For example, I should have a book done by now, I wish I had my boyfriend here to share the holidays with. As a result; I get more sensitive, cranky, and lonely….
But then Christmas Eve rolls around and I become extremely thankful for what I have, and all that has happened, and those in my life…. The holiday’s takes a toll on us: Families, friends, money, gifts you want to give and get, trying to prepare the perfect atmosphere for a few days….. It can be very overwhelming… One becomes desperate, anxious, hungry….. It just has to be “PERFECT”.
This year more than other years I realize people seem more then desperate, they are starving for acknowledgment, closeness, success, achievement.. Yet most are going the wrong way. Instead of turning to God, they are running to what they think will fill the void, only to find it growing deeper…
I have also realized that Christmas is one month out of the year, better yet only for my family about 36 hours of festivities… Then next we bring in the New Year, and the cycle starts over…. Nothing really changes……
This year I am choosing to skip the pity party that seem to have already started and go straight to that thankful atmosphere. By doing so, I lose a lot of wasted time, and by choosing to be happy, I hope I can help others be happy around me…. But it starts with a choice. I have to choose to change. It is not going to be easy, but nothing really worth it is easy… I am not going to dig a hole and burrow in my emotions; instead I am asking God for hand up, and joy to replace the stress, grief, loneliness, and frustration….
I am filling up on God’s word, I am eating the preaching’s of the pastors I love and drinking in the scriptures my friends are sharing… I am not close to becoming full yet, but I am also not starving anymore, not in the way I was before. I wish I could feed everyone this way too. So that they will not be hungry anymore! I pray for all the lost sheep out there. The people who don’t know what they are looking for…
I want to be a good example of Christ and who He is, so that the hungry people around me can be fed…
I urge you to look to God to fill your plate. Not the internet, not the tv, not shopping, nor in other people. What you’re looking for can only be found in one place… In Christ! I do not know how to explain it however once you let Christ in your life changes and you no longer fill empty, if you truly let Him in… I still feel lonely, not in the same way…
Don’t wait till Christmas to unwrap this Gift. It’s yours now, waiting with your name on it. For God so loved YOU, He gave His only Begotten son, Jesus Christ, so that who so ever believes in Him, shall have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16
If you already have Him in your heart I suggest you reevaluate your relationship and do as I am and submerse yourself in His word! Give yourself the best Christmas of all, and remember the reason for the season. He is the greatest comfort!
I don’t know you, but I really struggle with being submissive. Even when it comes to God sometimes. It really bothers me when people tell me what to do, how to live, what I should be. I even ignore myself sometimes. When I know I need to do something and I don’t because I would rather do something else. Personally I think that is one of the key struggles we all have in our walk with God? What I don’t understand is why we keep rebelling. Is it really that hard? YES it is. Because we forget that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the principalities of darkness. ~Ephesians 6:12
Let me start by saying, He, God our Father! When He made us gave us free will.. Once we accept Christ into our lives along with the Holy Spirit, we are able to see more clearly what is right and what is wrong. But being submissive is more then saying Yes or No. It is about completely trusting in God, about doing as he says with out question. A lot of times I have found the things God asks me to do make little sense…. It can even sometimes be embarrassing… Jesus had Peter walk on water; He had a man dunk himself in water seven times to be healed of leprosy; He spit in the dirt and rubbed that mixture on a man’s eyes, so he would be healed. God had them walk around Jericho for seven days doing nothing but praising and worshiping Him until the walls fell! Just a few examples at how strange the things may ask us to do are. But that is where faith comes in. If we can not truly trust our loving Father completely! Then we can never be completely submissive. But when we can, Amazing things happen!
Completely! That is a big word in its self! And being submissive can be scary. To give yourself completely to something, and being submissive too, is a huge deal. I can understand how hard that is. To give ones’ self away to someone completely, and to be submissive to another person is hard I am sure. Even I don’t know if I could do that.. At least to no one but God my Father.
Being submissive it is not really that hard. Think of it as being a servant or a host. We make it hard.
He sent Jesus for that purpose, to save us, and to teach us how to be. Jesus was the greatest example of being Completely Submissive! John 3:16. If we can not completely give ourselves to him for even five minuets. How can we expect to change, to grow, to become better, to find our purpose in life. We need to have a personal walk with Jesus, with the Holy spirit, with our Father God! Taking even just five minuets to kneel by the bed, bow our heads, and trust in Him. Can make such a huge difference in my mood and in the way I think for the rest of the day in such improved way. With all the stress of the world on our solders we need God to support us. But he can not do that if we can’t even trust him for five minuets….
How can we not want to be completely embraced in God’s everlasting love! Or to be completely forgiven and made a new? To let Him supply all our needs?? To be COMPLETELY SUBMISSIVE, means we show our full selves, we give up our control and give it all to Him. ~Philippians 4:13 I know my hardest struggle with that is I don’t feel worthy enough for it, or for my Father God’s love.. But We are good enough! He made us that way! He wants us to be happy! He wants us to be healthy, He wants us to have everlasting life. John 10:10; John 10:11
So please take some time out of your very busy schedule and devote it COMPLETELY to God. Read some of your Bible, listen to praise and worship music, or JUST BE SILENT and see what happens… If your open and are completely submissive to Him in that time You will see change in your life. It is not easy but one little step at a time is enough to start. However we have to take that first step.. And we need to listen…
Don’t be embarrassed, don’t be shy… Go wherever you need to go to do this, is between you and God. Even if you have to lock yourself in the bathroom and pray in there, or to your car. But we need to be submissive, for when we are then Great works will be in our lives. Doors will be opened, paths will be cleared, and rivers will be filled!

*For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee” Isaiah 54:10
*Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. ~Psalm 37:4
*And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:19
*For he loves us with unfailing love; the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Praise the Lord! ~Psalms 117:2.
Today I went to throw out some trash and when I looked in I found that my nephew had added to the trash. There on the top was the DVD / VCR player remote and His favored sippy cup. He is now in the habit of helping us clean and though it is cute we have to keep a close eye on what he puts in the trash now. And I got to thinking…..
How much do we Christians take for granted? How many important things do we forget, treat like trash, take fr granted, or throw out?? Take a minuet and look over your own life right now……………
Personally I am not taking the time I need to with God, to strengthen myself and to lean more. Also I have let the Devil use my anger towards those I love.. It is not all the Devil’s fault. I have a free will but I didn’t stop myself. Plus more… I am ashamed of myself and I need to work at paying more attention to what is important in life……… A missing shoe compares not to a sad sister.. Small example…
Metaphorically if we look at what my nephew threw out I think of. The Remote – Control over our own actions, thoughts and words.. VERY IMPORTANT! The Sippy Cup – I think of the living watter that quenches our thirst.. Jesus… MOST IMPORTANT! Where would we be with out him. I know I would be dead for sure…. But what else is important to you?? For me it is God-Jesus-The Holy Spirit, My Bible, My family, Friends, My Pets My Home, My Car, food, and my books.. Other then that nothing else matters to me really……
What can you do to your life to remind yourself not to throw away what is important in life?? Make a list, think about it, pray about it……….
