You are not Invisible

At times you may think you are inadvisable, alone, that no one can see you and no one cares. Especially with the lock downs and chaos going on in the world and in our country. Well, you are wrong! Maybe you lost loved ones and it seems like your world is falling apart. It may very well be. I know for us personally it seems to be for various reasons.

To top it off, our country has been at a cyber cival war amist the Cov19 crisis… People attacking people over big and small issues. Missunderstandings and hate crimes are happing all over not just in the USA… However in all my years I have not seen our country and people divided as we are now….

That has caused fear and anger to grow amongst the feelings that we people were already dealing with. Some people are out and about trying to get thier lives back. Even with the crazy resrtaints being forced on us more now then before when Cov19 first started. For otheres they are becoming more secluded away without other people. Becoming hermits and surviving via online shopping. Various by choice, others without opinions.

Having to stay apart and the drama going on- love, compassion, hugs and affection are becoming harder to receive. Yet alone to give. Why? I seriously want you to think about that. Why do you think? How does all this make you feel and how are you responding to the situations?

Personally I believe that fear is the main culprit. Fear of false truths, fear of lack of knowledge, fear of being forced into something, fear of being left out, fear of pain, fear of Cov19, fear of the unknown, fear of not being noticed, fear of failure, fear of not doing what you should, fear of standing out to much, of being invisible, fear of death and so much more. Fear is a powerful weapon. Fear can be physically crippling. What does God say about fear?

✞ John 10:10 (King James Version) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

✞ John 10:11-12 (New Living Translation) “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock.

✞ 2 Timothy 2:1 (King James Version) Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

✞ Joshua 1:9 (New International Version) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

✞Zephaniah 3:17 (New Living Translation) “For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

✞ Deuteronomy 28:12-14 (New International Version) The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

✞ Isaiah 41:10 (New International Version) So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

✞Romans 8:38 -39 (NKJV) “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

✞ Hebrews 13:5-6 (New American Standard Version) “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. “What will man do to me?”

✞ Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Now that’s deep! In short that means-

It’s true you do, and you are not alone. Not only is God on your side but so are many others. Maybe not physically in person but in prayer!

✞Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV) Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

✞ Matthew 18:20 (NIV) For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

If you are not sure how to pray. Think of talking to a parent, or better yet a bestfriend and say what is on your heart ❤

Also The Lord’s Prayer works too…

✞ Matthew 7 :7-8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (KJV)

✞ Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV) “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. “What will man do to me?” (New American Reviesd Standard)

Don’t forget to put on your spiritual armor as well!

God bless you today and always!

Faith Always

Do you ever feel torn about what be to do? You pray for answers and guidance but you don’t see, feel or hear an answer. That doesn’t mean nothing’s happening. I believe God is there fighting your battles. It may seem hope, or you’re feeling angry and in distress. I know right now I’ve been feeling all that. I had trouble understanding how anything good could come out of this. Yet God has been using this trial for my benefit. I’ve met some awesome new people, and pre existing relationships with people have been deepened. I’ve also been growing in my faith, renewing myself confidence and the passion I have for life.

Here’s some songs and verses I pray that will help you as well.

I first found this song on the radio before it was even out on cd. When my dad was in the hospital and having complications during a bypass sugery. Today, my mom sent it to me just when I needed it for my own battle. Music helps, especially praise and worship!!!

📖Bible Verses:

✞Philippians 4:13 (TLV)
I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me.

✞ 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

✞Joshua 1:9 (NKJV)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

✞ John 10:10 (NRSV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

✞James 1:1-7 (NLT) Faith and Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

✞ Matthew 6:25-34 (NLT)“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Rejoice in the Lord, Always!

It is important that we maintain Joy in this time of trouble and stress. I do not know one person who does not have something going on right now. Be it financial troubles, health, job security, or something else, every one is going through something. I really wish I could say this was not a fact, but it is. Therefore one is in a bad mood.

I can not begin to explain how hard it has been for me to keep joy these past few months. Every time I would find Joy, something would come up, happen, or attack my thoughts. I have had to make a physical and mental attempt to keep the joy. And that is not an easy task. Especially with so many “What is Next” questions are hanging around.

We can not live in fear! “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 Nothing gets done in fear. We need to walk in faith. There is power in our faith, in our words, in trusting God. Joshua chapter 6”By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.” Hebrews 11:30

Have we forgotten that God is all powerful! That he takes care of his children and their needs? Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who Gives me strength. John 10:11 I am the Good Shepard. The Good Shepard watches over his sheep.

If God can protect Joseph and make him a King. Genesis chapter 30 – Exodus chapter 1; he can deliver Shadrack, Mishah, and Abendigo from a Fiery furnace, with out a burnt hair or a stench. Daniel 3:17; He can take down the walls of Jericho. Hebrews 11:30; He can save Paul and Silas from prison. Acts 16: 25-26 and Raise people from the dead. John 11:43. What can he not do for you???

Here are some songs you can sing, when you need to find some Joy, along with a few more verses.

Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Deuteronomy 28:47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

Job 8:19 Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.


I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.
Where? Down in my heart!
Where? Down in my heart!
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart,
down in my heart
down in my heart to stay.

And if the Devil doesn’t like it he can sit on a tack.
OUCH
Sit on a tack.
OUCH
Sit on a tack.
And if the Devil doesn’t like it he can sit on a tack
Sit on a tack today.

Rejoice in the Lord always
And again I say rejoice
Rejoice in the Lord always
And again I say rejoice
Rejoice, rejoice
And again I say rejoice
Rejoice, rejoice
And again I say rejoice

Come bless the Lord Come bless the Lord Draw near to worship Christ the Lord And bless His name His holy name Declaring He is good O that men would praise Him O that men would praise Him Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice in the Lord always

And again I say, and again I say Rejoice! Come bless the Lord Come bless the Lord Draw near to worship Christ the Lord And bless His name His holy name Declaring He is good O that men would praise Him O that men would praise Him Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice!

And again I say, and again I say Rejoice! Come bless the Lord Come bless the Lord Draw near to worship Christ the Lord And bless His name His holy name Declaring He is good O that men would praise Him O that men would praise Him Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say, and again I say Rejoice!
