All I am, Because of You!

I am all I am because of You, my Lord!


Oh my Father, where would I be if not for you? Who would I be with out you? I am all I am, because of you! “For God so loved the world, He gave His only, begotten (beloved), son (Jesus), so that whom soever believes in Him (Jesus) shall have everlasting life. ~John 3:16  Such a powerful confession of Love for us humans… That the ALL POWERFUL, ALMIGHTY, ALPHA and OMEGA, would give up his only son, his most beloved, so that we can be with Him for all eternity!!  How could I say no to that??? How could you deny such a love…?? Easy!! I don’t deserve it…… I know I don’t I am imperfect… But he loves me because of our imperfections. Because we need Him, because He first loved us!  For he loves us with unfailing love; the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Praise the Lord! ~Psalms 117:2.

Lets start with the Beginning, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ~John 1:1 Going from there, knowing he is the amazing God that created Earth, and us… And reading all about the creation of earth and all it’s being in first chapters of  Genesis we see proof that what God says, Happens. And it is true. So if The ALMIGHTY God, says He loves me. Who am I to question it??? If I do, doesn’t that mean I am questioning who God is? And not trusting in Him?? Oh what a fool I would be not to trust in Him… It is easy for me to say but for you it may not be…

It is easy for me to say, because ALL I AM, is BECAUSE OF HIM!! Yes there is bad in the world, and  bad things happen…. (read previous posts) But it is not God’s doing… He doesn’t cause Bad. He is a LOVING God….  I don’t know why he allows bad to happen sometimes, or maybe we tie his hands so He can’t help…. But with in every bad situation there is and can be Good. And it can be turned around… One of the things I question most is why does he take his children early sometimes… I knew an amazing woman who moved to heaven at a young age, She was an amazing example of a person overflowing with God’s love. And touched every one’s lives. Marget was such a blessing to this world and it shook mine when she moved. But I know it was for a reason. Though I do not know the reason, I trust He has a grand plan.

I have been through stuff I would not wish on any human, health wise, and emotionally. And I know, it could have been much worse, and others have suffered even greater pains. But I also know during those times, God was with me. His peace, His healing, His strength, His LOVE never left me. And yet they grew stronger. And because of All He is, and what I suffered,  I grew to become the amazing woman that I am. I  have had life experiences that I can use to help others, and because I know how God has been there the whole time,  I can share that too… I’ll be honest I have been very mad at God for allowing the health issues. But because He is always there to Fix them, and He has, I can move forward. I had a stoke at age 25 It was my second one. This time I was aware of it. Because I worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant to a woman named Halie Brown. An Amazing woman, but she had many mini stokes and TIA’s (Transient Ischemic Attack) I knew what the symptoms were.  So when I woke up form a nap one day I knew I was having a stoke. Not a TIA, I was very scared.I could not use my main hand like I should be able too..  I went to the hospital, but the check in nurse didn’t believe me and was trying to move me along. So I started praying out loud, yet I was loosing the ability to speak now… THEN she believed me and rushed me back.  I cried out to God! “HEAL ME LORD!! I just started the book you told me to write, you can’t end it like this for me. I have dreams, Goals, wants…..”  And He did!!!  With in seven day I was completely back to normal. He healed me when I cried out, though it took a while. I was also able to witness to people and bless others stuck in the hospital.. I didn’t want the stoke, but good came out of it…… He used it to deepen my walk with Him and to Bless others… I am who I am because of these situations. I grew up faster then most children, and I have a different perspective of the world and of people then what is called normal, I call it a worldly way of thinking. I mean that nicely… I have found it utterly inpossinble for some one who does not know God to think of others easy, or to grasp what’s really important. Though there are some….. MOVING ON…

I read the book of Genesis Chapters 37-45 http://bibleresources.bible.com/passagesearchresults.php?passage1=Genesis+37&passage2=&passage3=&passage4=&passage5=&version1=9&version2=0&version3=0&version4=0&version5=0&Submit.x=0&Submit.y=0 It is the story of Joseph and the Coat of Many colors… Which in it’s self has meaning…  It is a good story about a man who trusts the Lord with all his heart, and though bad things keep befalling him, he keeps trusting in God. Thus God is able to bless him and return all he has lost… It is an excellent reminder God has a master plan! He made us! And as long as we trust in Him, and LET him Love us, we can become amazing people, and change the lives of those all around us for the better.. I wanna make the world a better place, I want to spread God’s Love, I want to be all HE, The all Mighty God, made me to be… Because I would be NOTHING, with out him. I would be lost, maybe a sex, drug addict, or dead….. But I am not Because I have him, I am LOVED, I have an amazing Family, and Wonderful friends!! I am so blessed…. And I want to help you see how blessed you are, and how amazing you are because of God’s Love, his care for you.. Please take a few minuests, hours, or days if you need to and re-think your life, what is important to  you, and what God has done and has protected you from.. LET His Love pour out on you!!!

“I cried out to God and He responded with such love. I was strengthened and renewed… I was blind but now I can see… I was ill but am now whole!! All true to me. God is so good!! I am so blessed to be loved by such an amazing God, that he cares enough for me to fill my desires before I ask, and my needs are always taken care of… Thank you my Lord!!! My cup is full and running over!!”

THANK YOU LORD, for making me Who I am today!!!

How and Where, Do You Pray?

How and Where, Do You Pray?

I ask you this honestly? Do you do it with clasped hands, entwined fingers, or folded arms?  Do you pray on your knees, against a bed or a chair; standing; or on your face on the floor? Do you pray while crying, when walking, while driving, or when doing a chore maybe?  Do you always know what to say? Or do you have a hard time finding the right words…  I know for me all the above counts… I pray constantly and in all situation and places. I even pray when shopping, during a movie, or out to dinner with friends.

Prayer is such an important part of our relationship to God. It can sometimes be very difficult. But at times it can be very easy too…  I find it most hard when I feel I should pray, as if I were forced to. But that is so rare for me…. Because I pray a lot, sometimes very passionately and personally, and other times quick thank you and I love you, to my Father who has made all and taken care of all.

To me prayer to Father God, Jesus is like talking to a best friend, to someone who loves me with un-ending love. To someone who accepts me as who I am and still wants the best for me.  Humans, people I love here my friends and family are important to me but I know they do not like all of me or wish they could change me somehow.. But God takes me as I am and with that knowledge I want to be better for him. There are people in my life who aspire me the same way. But I am far from perfect and I feel so bad when I mess up. I want to hide, lock myself away so no one can see me. Especially if it is something I think was very important that I think I failed at.  But there He is, my God with open arms ready for me to go to him for comfort and strength, and most important forgiveness.   And when I am not down I go to him for wisdom, authority against evil, and joyful thanksgiving in my heart.

How about you? How do you Pray, and where? Take a few minutes to think that over then continue to read.

If you do now know where to start, if praying to God, Jesus is not something you find easy then this is all you need to know. He gave us a prayer to pray that covers it all. Which is below.  And as for the where that does not matter. The only thing that does matter is that you have a relationship with our Faher God his son Jesus.

The Prayer is called:

“The Lord’s Prayer”

Matthew 6:9-13: New King James Version

9In this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father who art in Heaven,

hallowed be Thy name.

10Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth,

as it is in Heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread.

12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

God bless you today and always!

It is God who Arms me with strength

Hello Dear Friends,

This is something on my heart tonight, so here it is.

It is God who arms Me with strength in all the troubles and trials that life brings. I know when I lean on him I find Courage, Comfort, Peace, Joy, Grace, and most of Strength to continue the fight.

I am sure your like me and have had your fair share of battles recently or in the past. Most likely there will be many in the future. Where should we turn? Who can you lean on when you feel lost and alone? Towards our Father God of course.   But to do so that mean you have to lean on him to  find what you are looking for.  I know I do and it has given me  such a strength. I know that I would not have been able to survive the battles in my life with out him and his everlasting, un-failing, LOVE which is what gives me the strength to fight on.

DO NOT GIVE UP! LEAN ON HIM!

KJV: It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

!WAIT ON IT!

!WAIT ON IT! magnify

!Wait!

Wait…Wait…Wait…Wait..Wait…Wait…BUT…WAIT!!!…Wait…Wait…wait…Wait…wait…But!…
…………………………………………..WAIT!!!..
……….WAIT………wait………………………………….

OK, NOW!

Do you ever feel like that? You’re waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Because God said Wait! And you feel like the answer, or what you’re praying for may never come. I understand. I have been struggling with a few things and I have been praying about them. Well a few days ago about one main thing I was concerned about. God very clearly told me to. That’s right. WAIT! Oh man has that been hard. But I gave it all to God and I said ok. “Ok God! I know your timing is perfect. Give me the strength I need to wait, and I will.” As soon as I said that it seemed a lot of temptations started to appear. I was surrounded. But I Know, that I know! God’s plan is best plan.

Sometimes we have to wait hours, days, weeks, months, and even years for an answer to a prayer. And it gets very hard, and it can cause anger, stress, and emotional problems. But sometimes it takes time to line up every thing. For Example: We will move out of state one day. Which is my Mothers heart felt prayer. God said Yes. But we are still here four years latter. And she asks why! “Why God, are we still here.” God only knows. Maybe the home she will have is not ready for her. Or the job she will work is not open. Maybe there are other things too that need to fall in to place.

But not all prayers require such a long waiting period. But some do take a wait. And I have leaned for my own “Wait” prayers that they are worth waiting for. Some examples: I had my teddy bear taken from me when I was in the hospital at age twelve. I was mad but I prayed about it I forgave and Trusted God about it. Several years latter I went in to the hospital again. It was over Christmas, and guess what I got. Not just one teddy bear but twenty Teddy bears. They were gifts and donations. What a blessing. I kept some and donated the rest. But God keeps his word. I prayed for a Vehicle and with in a matter of three weeks God blessed me with finding the perfect Vehicle for me and I was able to afford it. I could list many more prayers. But they don’t matter. The point is God keeps his word and answers our needs out hears desire. As long as they will bless and help us bless others and it is in his plan. We want to be in his plan, because then our life is sure to be blessed and a blessing to others.

When you don’t wait on the Lord some times you can mess up the plan God has for you and it takes longer for the answer to come through. I am standing in faith that God has a Man for me. But when I was younger I decided to help God in my search. And I dated a young man for about nine years. I had every intention to marry him. God said No all along but I refused to listen because where else would I find a man who loved me for me. What I didn’t realize he did love me but more so because he didn’t want to be alone. He had no real intention of ever marrying me. And finally I realized I was living what I wanted, and I was holding both of us back from what God has for us. Sure it wasn’t a complete waste; God brought some good from it. But what did I miss out on, while making my own path? I know I fell away from God a bit in my studies. (He was not a Godly man.) I believed I was not worth anyone but his love, I let my self go. “I am good enough with just getting by.” That was my way of thinking. Which I know now is wrong. You need to be all you can and then some. I want to be so much I want to bless you and the ones I know. I want to be a woman of God, some one he, my heavenly (and earthly) father can be proud of. I want to spread God’s love to every one and I want NO ONE to go to hell. But that is your choice to want. I can only give you what I know and pray for you.

So… Please, WAIT on the Lord and keep your faith in Him. He has not forgotten you, he knows your heart. He is your father too! Thank God for the objective you’re praying about and stand firm. Don’t waver.

God Bless you!!

!FAITH NO MATTER WHAT!

!FAITH NO MATTER WHAT! magnify
!FAITH NO MATTER WHAT!

Right now it is the new year 2009! YaY!! And still it feels like last year has not ended. A lot of us still in a hurry to get things finished. Or we have a huge pile of new things. And some of us are depressed and down. Another year a lone. Another year struggling with some thing. It never seems to end. As we get older the chores and the tasks, for most, build up more and more. It is overwhelming I know. And it gets harder and harder to rely
on God for some. Because so many non believers get what they need and want so easy, yet we have to work so hard for them. NOTHING comes free. There is always a price to pay.

I had a dream last night that for some reason my Dad took a ride home from a stranger. (He needed the ride.) She wore dark cloths and had a strange necklace. I asked her about it and she said it was her sign. She openly claimed to be a “DEMON” I was in shock. (For some reason we were out of food and water.) And she kept trying to give me a drink and food. I kept refusing and she called me stupid. “How can you refuse, you will starve and stay thirsty.” she taunted. So I explained to her that I was a Christian and that I trusted God to take care of my needs. She didn’t care she is a demon (she was a human choosing to be evil.) She persisted. My dad came back into the room and went to the sink. Where he turned the facet on. Instead of water which we didn’t have (remember it is off.) Honey and mana flowed out. And the family had food which filled out thirst and hunger. Then I woke up with these words in my head.
“For your Faith I will take care of you.”

Strong words. It revived the hunger, the passion, and the faith I have. Only last week I had a severe pain on the right side of my mouth, not sure it it was a gland, an ear ache, or a wisdom tooth. But the pain brought me to tears several times. I do not have the local insurance right now to go to the Dr. And there was a problem that happened at the hospital where they charged me when they should not have. So I was afraid to go. And the pain kept getting worse. Until I woke up and remembered I need to pray against it. I told my family and my friends and we prayed. The next day it was 75% gone. And the day after that completely gone. I had to struggle the first day of prayer because I was still in pain. But I kept firm in Faith that I was healed. God is a good God.

There were a few other little problems I had as well that were also taken care of once I remembered who was Lord and I gave them to him. The thing that is important most is KEEPING FAITH in GOD to save the problem. the girl in my dream represents the Devil. And how he uses people around us to poison us with words and ect. So that we forget what we are doing, or it causes more strife in our lives. (John 10:10 The Devil comes only to Steal, Kill, an to Destroy us! But I (God) comes to bring you life and to bring it Abundently.!)

Nothing worth getting is ever easy. Sad but true. God can do not do anything if we can’t make up our mind if we have faith or not. How would you like some one to come up to you and say. “I Trust you” Then the nest min they change their mind. Then they change it back and so forth. Annoying yes? Confusing, do they trust you or not? Would you trust them? GOD loves us, no doubt, but does he Trust us? I think he wants to. But trust is a two-way street. And we have to Trust HIM.! Even when there are temptations. I am not saying refuse a kind hand form someone. But you should guard yourself freedom evil. Pray about who you spend time with. Pray about the things you do. You may not like the answers. I know I have not always, but I know it must be done. And it has been for the best. I was able to keep a hold of my Faith in God. And without God, I am nothing but with God I have everything..

So No matter what your going through, No matter what you need, Trust in the Lord, Have faith that he will take care of it, he will take care of you and your family. Don’t be wishy washy on it. Stand firm. And see results. Some may not be now but they will come, and some times not in the way we thing. But our FATHER God knows what is best for us.

So I end it here.

!!!!HAVE FAITH NO MATTER WHAT!!!!

((If you have not asked Jesus into your heart. God’s Loving son who died so that we may go to heaven, (John 3:16) then you should know it is never to late. If you would like to read the Bible but don’t have one. Wal-mart sells them cheap, and most churches give them away. Just be careful what church you choose. An there is http://www.bible.com too. The King James it the closest to the original. But New King James, the NIV, are good along with a few others. Just to get you started. ))

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

1st Chronicles 4:10 (KJV)

And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

Psalms 38:21

Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.(KJV)

Psalms 40:4

Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. (KJV)

Psalms 40:16

Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.(KJV)

Psalms 37  {WHOLE CHAPTER} (KJV)

1Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart 5Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. 6And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 7Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 9For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 10For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 12The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. 13The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. 14The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. 15Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. 16A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. 17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous. 18The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. 19They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. 20But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. 21The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. 22For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. 23The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 24Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. 27Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. 28For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. 29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. 30The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 31The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. 32The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 33The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. 34Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. 35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. 36Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found. 37Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. 38But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. 39But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. 40And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

God bless you!
