God Has Got This

This is Gratefully Restored’s first vlog about Restoration in Christ Jesus.


Here are the references she mentioned in the video.

📖 Bible Verses: (NIV)

✞James 4:2 “You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.”

✞James 5:13-16  “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.  Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

✞John 16:23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.”

✞Hosea 4:6a “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.” 

✞Isaiah 40:30-31 “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

✞1 Peter 5:10 “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”

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.

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 Twitch.



Guess what? I have spent the past week leaning Twitch. Yep….  Have you heard of it? It is like youtube but more for live streams. So we can do broadcasts in the future.  Here is our page check it out. Right now I am hosting a Christian radio site when we aren’t live.

Feel free to give me tips and help… I still don’t know how to make the chat or find the chat on the website. I only see it on the app. We will still do facebook live eventually.

We are on Youtube


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.

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.


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…


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.
