Prayers for our Parents Health

I am shocked by the number of my friends who’s parents are going through life threatening health issues right now.  God gave us parents to lead us to guide us and to  help us grow.  So when our  parents are ill  or  worse we the children are seriously affected.  I personally have been dealing with my dad’s life threatening health until recently as well. (My dad is doing much better and out of danger now.)  We have a  good God. A Loving Father God who cares about us and our loved ones! Jeremiah 31:3 My prayers go out to all Families right now dealing with the this. Don’t let the devil make you forget who your God is! Revelation 1:8

There comes a time for everyone to move as my family calls it. If you have peace that it is their time to go Then I pray that they go peacefully and  in loving comfort  wrapped in Gods arms.   Isaiah 54:10 (NIV) Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.   And – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

But if it is not their time to  go yet and the fight is on –  I pray for your and your parents health in Jesus name! I Claim-Isaiah 53: 5 overall! I pray for restoration and miracles to happen that bring God all the Glory. I pray that no matter what you need that you know God is working behind the scenes and He will provide you with your needs. -Philippians 4:19  Take the Authority the Holy Spirit gives you Luke 10:19 and Rebuke the Devil and claim the everlasting Life God promises. John 10 : 10.

 

There is always  a battle going on Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Be it at work, with people, or with ourselves…  We are  always fighting off the devils lies. It is important to know what God says.  We need to dig our roots into the word of  God (may main purpose for this blog) And we need to always wear our battle armor!  so that we are equipped  to fight off the Devils attacks Because he is always attacking us in one way or another.

Ephesians 6:10-18

God bless you today and always!

God’s Purpose for Your Life: Don’t live with out trying!

God’s Purpose for Your Life: Don’t live with out trying!

I don’t want to go through the motions; I don’t want to live with out trying. How often do we make promises to ourselves that we don’t keep? How often do we give up before we try? I don’t want to do that any more. I want to live for God 100% not because I have to, but because of all he has done for me. And for what he does daily for us the human race.

Every day is a new miracle. A new piece of art; a new day; a new chance! No matter how it is. Rain or Shine there is good in it. We are blessed. And I want to share the blessing with you and others I may meet. God is good. He is a loving Father. He sent his son to earth for you. Jesus spilled his blood for you. I am so thankful to be alive even with all the bad I have gone through. I want to share God’s love, so that every one has a chance to accept Christ, and go to heaven. I don’t want any one to miss out on this amazing feeling. I want every one to be blessed. Yes every one. God loves us all! No matter what you did or who you are. He wants you to know that! Be thankful and welcome him in your heart. He is waiting with open arms.

So the Lesson tonight is: God’s Purpose for Your Life

The Father’s greatest desire is for you to have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Once you have accepted Jesus into your heart. Once you have received God’s forgiveness, and His love.  Then you are ready to fulfill the rest of His plan for your life. Your destiny will unfold as you obey the daily prompting and guiding of the Holy Spirit.

The details of where He leads each believer will vary, and He rarely gives any of us a complete picture of our destiny. However, God desires at least three things for every Christian. We will cover the first one tonight.

1. To know God’s Word.

The best way to know the Father is to read about Him and what He has to say.

If we don’t neglect reading Scripture.

Ephesians 4:14 Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us ,with lies so clever they sound like the truth.

What benefits can we receive from studying and applying the Word of God?

2 Tim. 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

Our minds are renewed as we read the Bible. In other words, God transforms our thought patterns so that they honor Him. How does this help us spiritually?

Rom. 12:1-2 And so, dear brothers and sisters,[a] I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.[b] 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Some more Verses for your walk and encouragement:

Luke 1:45 And blessed is he /she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord

Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

The Ultamete Christmas Gift!

The Ultamete Christmas Gift! magnify
ONLY Three Days Till Christmas!

“Oh My!!!! The stress is really piling up! And there is so much more to do… How will I ever get it done?? I can’t wait till it is over!”


How many of you feel like that? I know I have. For over a week now, and have less barley half my shopping done. I was so stressed about what to get who. So much so I couldn’t think properly and I was getting sick from lack of sleep. On top of that, I knew I should write something. But I didn’t know what until now.

Today I was reminded it is not how much do we do, how much we spend, or how much time we put in to the season and gifts. It is why we do it that matters. It is for the end result that we go thought all the effort of the tasks we do.

The season in the U.S.A. normally starts the day after Thanksgiving. What a wonderful holiday that was.. Most of us cooked, threw a party, attended a party, or went out to dinner. All in order to give thanks (to the Lord) and remembered all the things we are Thankful for. That was nice, was it not. And most of us had started our giving with food. What a great start into such a wonderful season, yes?

It was a nice October and November! The weather has been cool or cold, the air and leaves changed. And then Thanksgiving was over and………………………………………………….

*Fires the Gun*


The sales stared! And off we went! As did the stress! We get so caught up in the “Perfect Gifts” wanting to buy just the right thing to my everyone happy, even when it costs more then we can afford. I know not EVERYONE is like this but this season just about every one I know is going though this stress. To top it all off your normal life is still going on. So while your looking for the perfect gift your having to go to work, and run the standard errands, plus the special “pre-cleaning” – “Out with the old to make room for the new” is happening. And that builds the pressure until it gets to be too much. So when Christmas comes: your like a dried up, burnt piece of toast. Your burnt up in energy, trying to make it the perfect day, while pieces of you fall off, and your to dry to absorb anything that’s is going on around you. How many of these Christmas’s have you experienced? Or any holidays for that matter.

Don’t let your self forget why we go thought all the perorations and planning for this special day. We do it because we LOVE those around us. Because we care enough to show others we appreciate them, even if we do not like them at all times. This is the time of year that is all about Giving, and we give because – God gave to us! He gave us His ONLY begotten son. (Begotten – Unique – one of a kind.) (The most precious gift any of us could ever hope for!!!) So that who ever believes in him shall have everlasting life. – John 3:16

Not only that, but are our sins forgiven! Jesus died on the Cross for us. We are washed clean by his spilled blood.. Consecutively: so that we may come in to our everlasting life. To me that is almost too good to be true. But I believe, the Bible proves it to be true.

*Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

*Psalm-85:2
Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin.

We are so blessed that we do not have to go thought gory sacrifices of animals and or our crops like they did before Jesus came. And that we do not have to go thought others to be forgiven.

*Psalm-32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

*Leviticus-4:35
And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of the lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the priest shall burn them upon the altar, according to the offerings made by fire unto the LORD: and the priest shall make an atonement for his sin that he hath committed, and it shall be forgiven him.

All we have to do is receive Jesus, the ultimate Christmas gift. It is better then that TV. , DVD, iPod, Laptop, Car, ect……. And once we remember the reason for the season. While your doing your last minuet shopping and you’re decorating, take a some time each morning to talk to God and have some praise and worship time, read your Bible. The stress will let up and we can find joy and peace in the giving and the receiving even more then last year. Because it is about the Price Jesus paid for us. It is about the blessed Birth that is and was to save our lives from eternal damnation.

With that thought you should also reach out and save some one’s life with a kind word and the message of God’s Love. And I know their Christmas will be a wonderful one too. Don’t force it on anyone, just plant the seed. Those who plant are not always those who water and grow the harvest. Remember to pray for the person though. That’s the best we can do for anyone and it is priceless c ompared to worldly goods.

Once I remembered why I was “spending all my money” on “the perfect gifts” The shopping task became fun and exciting and less like a chore. And once I relaxed, I realized what would be best to get everyone.

*Hebrews-12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

*Mark-2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee

*Mark-6:6
And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

*2-Corinthians-13:4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

. That’s all for now,

God Bless you, Merry Christmas, Happy New year, and Thank you for reading.
