✝️Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”
It’s not always easy to walk by faith. Especially when things are rough and you have so many questions and things to stress about. Faith means giving up your control and giving it away to someone else. Like God, Jesus. What is faith?
✝️Matthew 17:20 “…Truly I tell you, 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.”
I suggest you practice giving your concerns to the Lord, because He truly cares for you.
✝️1 Peter 5:7 says “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for us”. Just throw it on him, and let him carry your burdens. Jesus said we could cast all of our cares on him because he cares for us! There is nothing we are going through that we cannot cast on the Lord.
✝️Romans 3:23-26 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus
You are loved! Even when you don’t feel like it.
✝️Psalm 36:7–9 7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; your light do we see light.
✝️Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Remember it is the king of lies and deceit that’s trying to keep you down.
Don’t let him win. Take charge. Because God is our source!
✝️ John 10:1-11 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
The Lord showed me and my family that The earth is shaking. Apprently The Lord is telling other pastors and people the same thing. The Earth is shaking right now! We are currently having a spiritual, emotional, health, and physical battle right now!!! You need proof look it up do some research. I will list below what I know is current facts and a link to a YouTube channel where you can see live footage yourself.
I mean it literally the Earth is shaking physically: with earthquakes, floods, fires, hurricanes, mudslides, sinkholes, tornadoes, and more.
The Earth is shaking -causing animals to die in swarms. That includes birds, fish, insects, mamals, anfibians, reptiles, and sealife. (Forgive me if I left any out.)
The Earth is Shaking from plage…. The COV19 virus…
The Earth is shaking and people are turning aginst one another for various reasons. Such as political differences, health restrictions, faith differences, skin colors, difference of opinions, and emotions are escalating…. (Forgive me if I left any out.) People are dying because of it. 😭
The Earth is shaking because there is a great spiritual battle going on right now and people are being forced to choose a side. To accept Christ Jesus or not to. I believe in the rapture and I believe that it could be sooner than later. If this a small taste of the tribulation after the rapture, I am scared for those who may be leftbehind.
I am not trying to scare you, but you should know what is going on in the world right now. That way you can choose what you want to do about it. I truly care for you, and truly believe God is a loving father. Here are some more Bible verses for you.
The Two Preachers also offer audio Bibles on YouTube New International Version and King James Version. Linked below.
I am calling all prayer warriors to join and pray with us for our country and the world. Thank you for stopping by. –

Lets just jump right in〰️1 John 4:7-21 ( ESV) Says: God Is LoveBeloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. (Jesus) Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in Him, and He in God. 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. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as He is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.Wow, that is deep and blunt… We all at times hold resentment or anger aginst others. We get lost in doing doing so. We are only human. This is a great reminder of who we are called to be and who we are in Christ. Furthermore it is a reminder that we are greatly loved by our father God and Jesus Christ.Since it is getting close to Valentines day I thought this would be the perfect topic. To sum it up. God is pure unconditional love! Because He is love – He wants us to be loved. He made us to be loved and to love one another.
Since sin entered the picture, when Adam and Eve ate the apple [Genesis 3:1-6 (NIV) Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.”]To free us from sin God planed to send Jesus out of his pure unconditional love. Jesus -Lived -Died- and was Resurrected, so that we may have a way to be freed of the curse of sin. We are then given a choice to believe in Him or not.
It goes in to say since God is love and Jesus is love when we accept Christ we are filled with the love unlike any I could explain. In with this pure unconditional love we are to love others like Jesus and God does. ~1 John 4:9-10 NIV This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
We aren’t perfect. ~Romans 3:23-26KJV For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
but we’re not supposed to hate others. ~Leviticus 19:17-18KJV Thoushalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.
If we hate then we haven’t grasped the depth and purity of the love and we should work on it. ~John 8:5-12 KJV Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
I will leave you with that- Happy Valentines day!
God bless you today and always!

As I drove thought the forest today I saw so many trees of all sizes. I felt surrounded by the greenery. I wondered how old they were. Were they planted by men or by nature. I was memorized at how the sun reflected through the branches. as I neared the edges of the mountain I began to see some trees growing sideways, and some suspended in the air by rocks, with their roots exposed reaching: some several feet down, some finally embedding in soil, and some dangling free attached to nothing. My first reaction was I need to bring a camera next time I come this way, and my second was how sad…. The poor trees…. It made me think of all the people searching for meaning in life, searching for somewhere to root and grow. The whole reason this blog, this page, and now the book was being created… My heart broke for those treesa. Will the roots be able to find the dirt they seek, or will they become frail and end up dying because of their lack of need.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. ~Jeremiah 17:8 (KJV)
I see so many people hurting in this way too.. I want to scream, Your not alone!!! You are loved beyond our physical comprehension and mental understanding. I so desperately want you to find love and a companion in Jesus as I have. The knowledge and the relationship changed my life for the better and I wish for you if you don’t know Jesus to have a relationship and life changing love…
The Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. ~Jeremiah 31:3 (ESV)
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” ~Mathew 7:7 (KJV)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” ~Romans 10: 9-13 (KJV)
God bless you Today and Always,

“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.
