KNOW and Do

Part 1 and 2 videos by Greatfuly Restored: “Know and Do part 1 and Part 2” Uploaded with the YouTube studios app since I’m unable to get on a computer at this time. I will update preview to images and the discretions next week. We didn’t want to wait until next week to share. We also wanted to try something new. Let us know if you like this new close up format vs how it was done before please and thank you!

🎤This isn’t an easy topic to discuss, but because of Jesus, we have a choice to be forgiven and redeemed. God loves you and there is no such thing as a perfect person. You can not earn your way to heaven. It is a choice you make to ever believe or not believe. Once you accept Jesus it cannot be taken away unless you decide you do not believe anymore or if you denounce Jesus. According to the Bible. God knows your heart and it is your personal walk… Ask – Seek – Knock…

📖Bible Verses:

✞ Ephesians 1: 7 (New International Version)
In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

✞ Galatians 3:13 – 14 (King James Version)
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

✞ Proverbs 15:24 (New King James Version )
The way of life winds upward for the wise,
That he may turn away from hell below.

✞ Romans 6:23 (English Standard Version)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

✞ 2 Peter 3: 8-9 New Life Version (NLV)
Dear friends, remember this one thing, with the Lord one day is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years are as one day. The Lord is not slow about keeping His promise as some people think. He is waiting for you. The Lord does not want any person to be punished forever. He wants all people to be sorry for their sins and turn from them.

✞ John 3:18 (English Standard Version)
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

✞ Colossians 1:12-14 (New International Version)
and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

✞ Romans 10: 9 -10 (New International Version)
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved

✞ John 1:12-13 (New International Version) Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

✞ Matthew 7:7-8 (New International Version)
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

✞ Revelation 3: 20 (Living Bible)
“Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me.

✞Isaiah 43:1-3 (New Life Version)
But now the Lord Who made you, O Jacob, and He Who made you, O Israel, says, “Do not be afraid. For I have bought you and made you free. I have called you by name. You are Mine! When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not flow over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. The fire will not destroy you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, Who saves you.

🧩As God Promised Jacob then, He promises it for you now, as well now. The rainbow is Gods Proof that he is for us not against us. That was before Jesus came to think about how much more we have now with Jesus.

🥁 You are Loved and you are blessed and you are redeemed if you wish to be.

✞ Isaiah 40:1-2 (New Life Version)
“Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God. “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, That her warfare is ended, That her iniquity is pardoned;
For she has received from the Lord’s hand Double for all her sins.”

✞1 Samuel 16: 14 – 23

Howdy.

Hello,

 

I am sorry I have been so quiet lately.  Life keeps us busy and we get sidetracked. I will be working on keeping a better schedule with updates and posts. I often forget about the blog because of our Facebook page. I plan to work harder to not let that happen. A year 2018 ago this month we decided to do some Vlogs. Well, I  Amy, did. I made a  Youtube channel and a twitch account. I uploaded two videos to start with. Then we had a family emergency and things were put off till Christmas 2018 when someone else “Gratefully Restored”  decided she wanted to join in on the vlogs.  We got a camera and a program and did a few test runs. I am extremely excited to say the first vlog this year will be posted later today on our Youtube Channel.  You can find all our links below.  I hope you will be blessed by our hard work and love for you all.

Pray for our Leaders

✏ I care about what’s going on in the world and I  love my country. I respect the president because the Bibles says to respect your leadership and pray for the leaders. Hate gets you nowhere…No one is perfect… We all have faults. That’s why we pray for our leaders. They have guidance and wisdom to make good choices. It is as simple as that.

 ▶️1 Peter 2:7 <NLT> “Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king.” (Meaning respect the leaders/government.)

▶️1 Timothy 1: 2:1-2 <NIV> “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. “

God Knows what is going on and nothing happens without him. 

▶️Daniel 2:20-23 <ESV>

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. To you, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, for you have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of you, for you have made known to us the king’s matter.”

📍Submission to Governing Authorities

▶️ Titus 3:1-2 <NIV>

“Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good,  to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.”

▶️Romans 13:1-7 <NIV>

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.  Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.  For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended.  For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.  Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.  Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”

We need to stand together and pray. Not just for our government, but also each other!

▶️Matthew 12:25 <NLT> Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart.

🔎Look up these verses on your own in your bible or on www.biblegateway.com.

I meant to write this last year. I am sorry it took me so long. God bless you and your love ones, today and always!

We are on Youtube

Howdy!

So I was toying with the idea of creating a  Youtube Channel for some Vlogs or audio recordings for a while now. I  love to write but sometimes it is nice to watch or listen too, right? You don’t want to always read? I felt it was something that should have happened a while ago but I let time and fear put me off till now.  God’s timing is perfect, right?  I faced my fear and I made the channel which I linked below.

Screenshot at Mar 10 22-50-55

Our YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8ayvhYTNT8nz07ab9ytILg

Plus I added some videos I made with the limited resources I had… I used a  voice recording program on my phone and windows media maker. I was really nervous and excited. I pray that theses vlogs and future ones will bless you as well as our future blog posts!

 

God bless you today and  Always!!!!

A mater of the heart♥

Let me start off with a story. When I was somewhere between the ages of seven – nine, I created a card for God. It was a simple card I made out of construction paper.  I went as far as t glue a heart cut out inside. I then left the card on the table for God. On the inside don’t know if it was for Valentines day or just because. I told God that I  loved him very much, and I was giving him my heart. When I woke up the next day the card was still there and I was sad, until I saw the heart was missing. Which made me overjoyed. (I was skeptical so I looked all over and I couldn’t find it.)  Thus, I decided that God took it.

Simple-Red-Heart-Paper-Cut-Desktop

Now shift to the present, as very few of you know and most of you don’t. I have been dealing with a lot of tests of my faith over what feels like the past Seven years. I am guessing. I am not sure exactly when it started. I have always been proud of my self for being a strong woman. One who endures challenges and laughs in the face of danger. Yet, since my brother Shane, passed away, then my aunt Christine, and almost my dad… Along with breaking my foot and it taking almost a year to heal, battling constant colds, and sinus infections, dealing with friends moving away or growing distant. Having my laptop break down over and over again. Despite the fact that Things were finally falling into place really happening for me. I fell into a very deep dark depression last summer. Its crazy right? I have been though so much. Besides the loss of  family members, the little tings shouldn’t have broke me. However, I was broke. My faith, my hope, my joy shattered…

pexels-photo-14303.jpeg

I was mad at God. Not to the extreme that I was when I was a teen, but I was constantly angry. I didn’t like feeling like that so I pulled away from my friends. I didn’t want them to see me like that. At first it was just a light depression. Before long, I was falling down the depression hole. I kept hoping someone would pull me out. I don’t think anyone could have tho. It was self inflicted hate. I hated myself. I counted my self as a failure. I beat myself up. I yelled at myself. I yelled at God for letting me get my hopes up just to dash them. It was bad. I honestly didn’t know I was in depression, until I was talking to a friend about a book I am working on. When he suggested the word despair for hopelessness.  The reality that I was depressed, hit me like a ton of brisks. I was indeed hopeless. It got so bad that for about five minuets one night.  That I thought about ending it all. It didn’t matter what I was thinking . In-fat the whole point was. I wasn’t thinking. That image of ending it all was when I finally snapped out of it. I realized that I needed help. I needed to tell someone how I was feeling and stop holding it in. None of those dark thoughts were mine. That is not how I think, that is not who I am. Yet, for a time it was clouding my judgement. ♥ 2 Corinthians 11:3 “But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.” ♥Genesis 3:1 “Now the serpent was more subtitle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” The dark thoughts were blocking me from God.

When I finally realized it, I cried for what felt like a week. Through everything I have experienced in the past-  I was always been able to see the silver lining. That was until the depression hit last summer. I was blinded by fear. ♥John 10:10 “The devil comes only to Steal, Kill, and Destroy; but I come to bring Life and to bring it Abundantly.”  Some how, for some reason, I had let my guard down. Letting the enemy into my mind.            ♥1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” I didn’t willingly let my guard down. My pulling away from God, letting anger, pain, feelings control me. The process happened slowly. ♥ Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” ♥2 Corinthians 11:14 “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

It has been about many month since then, and I have been doing much better. I am joyful even on hard days.  Best of all, God and I  have a stronger relationship with Him. ♥1 John 4:16 “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. ♥Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Amen!

What is the status of your heart? Where do you stand with God?

Happy Valentines day all! Remember its no just couple love, its all love that should be celebrated they all should be. So celebrate your: friendships, family, yourself, and most of all your relationship with  God.
