✝️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.
This is my prayer for our country and the people around the world.
Creator of the heavens, the earth, and the rain. Please forgive this nation and shower down your rain quickly to stop the fires and prevent more from starting. Especially the western states. Rise up your prayer warriors to seek your righteousness through Jesus Crist.
✞Acts 14:17 (NIV) Yet he has not left himself without testimony:(A) He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons;(B) he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy….
✞Hosea 10:12 (NIV) Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.
✞Isaiah 45:8 (NIV)“You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it; I, the Lord, have created it.
God bless you today and always!

At times you may think you are invisible, 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, maybe it seems like your world is falling apart, or maybeyoufeel lost. You may very well be. I know for us personally it seems to be that way for us for various reasons.
To top it off, our country has been at a cyber cival war amist the Covid crisis… People attacking people over big and small issues. Missunderstandings and hate crimes are happing all over the world. Not just in the USA… In all my years I have not seen our country and people as divided as we are now….
This division 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 Covid 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 Covid, 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 comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy: I am come so that they might have life, and that they might have it 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 (NIV) “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 (NLT) “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 (NIV) 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 (NIV) 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 (NASV) “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 (NIV) 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 (KJV) 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. (
✞ 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?”
Don’t forget to put on your spiritual armor as well!
God bless you today and always!

This is my letter of encouragement to you. Waiting on the Lord is a good thing to do. Especially when it comes to things like meeting your Spruces, or for an answer to a prayer. However that does not mean sit around doing nothing. I have in the past driven myself into depressions. Because I felt like my life was on hold. I prayed, I read my Bible, I lived day by day. But things did not seem to change. That is until I got off my rear and started putting myself out there. I don’t know what I was waiting on back then, some life altering change. Silly me, my heart has done that many times for me. I was trying to live up to the world’s view of a successful person.
I do not have a job, I am not married, I have no children, I still live at home. But does that define me? NO! God does. He has opened the door for me on many occasions to minister to others, to pray for others, to help those in need. However that does not define me either. I do not sit on my but doing nothing either. What defines me is who I choose to be. How I choose to act. If I choose to wait on God, good. But on some things you need to step out and take a chance.
I started walking daily to get fresh air and to make a change in my
daily schedule.I know it was a small one, but it was a big deal to me back then. I lived a lone and in a strange city. If all I did was stay in-doors all day, every day, I would go mad. I choose not to.
Now, years latter, I run the home for my family, clean daily, cook when needed, run errands when needed, I watch my nephew, and take care of the pets. I do those things because I choose to, because I love my family. I want to be a blessing I want to set an example of God, I want to be a good child.
I have told you many times stand up for God, spread God’s Love. Be a living example. People watch you. What you do matters. Watch your attitude, watch how you treat others.
Do you like what you see. Do you think God, Jesus will be proud of you. I know it is impossible to be perfect, I am not asking you to be. God will love you either way. My mother used to say to me. “Think about when Jesus comes back. How do you want him to find you.?” Sometimes I even forget that. That saying “W.W.J.D. = What would Jesus Do” is a great reminder to have posted some where in your home, or room.
Please do not be depressed, don’t be hard on yourself, don’t sit around doing nothing. Stand up and do something that will benefit you and be an example of God’s awesomeness. Start a bible study / prayer Group, join a church, do something in your community, volunteer some where. When you do something for others not only will you find joy, you will be doing something important and making a difference too. If you want a friend, some one to pray with, please feel free to e-mail us. firstname.lastname@example.org we are here for you.
For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God
I have been struggling with some personal worth issues, those of you who know me and those of you who don’t probably have no idea how I value myself and how I have been down. I know how to hide real well. Every one I know right now is struggling trough something.
I came across the video below, a week ago. I have probably watched it about fifteen times now. It touched me so much I shared it with all my friends. However I feel like that is not enough. It is a extremely good skit that is anointed by God. You can feel the emotions in their voices. There is humor and seriousness. It has helped me so much. It covers so much in such a little amount of time. The Video “God’s Chisel” is exactly what I needed and more. I know I tend to write off personal experiences but That is what I Know what to write about. It is personal to me so I put my whole heart in writing these blogs in hopes that it will some how touch one of you readers in some way. God made me to be a witness of his Love and Faith to others. Along with helping you deepen your roots with our lord and savior. And this video is Amazing! That is so important! Especially these days where the world is in such Chaos!
Now go watch this Vid. It is about 10mins. And expect something. Watch it all the way trough, and please if it touches you leave a comment here and tell us.
I know how hard it is to let things go! I have been working on that lately, especially with people wronged me and my family. I thought I had forgiven the men, and let it go. Till one sent me a message on myspace after years of nothing. And he said to me “I know you hate me but will you talk to me.” what is sad is I never Hated him, he was a dear friend. (I do not believe in hating people. It dose nothing except block healing from you and hurting yourself.) But I fond held resentment I did not know about till the person contacted me again. I have also been mad at another person and what they are doing to some one I love. Along with worries and stress I have been holding on to. I went to bed mad, but couldn’t sleep till I prayed and wrote the person back. I explined I was not “Hateful” twords them and explined I was hurt in their actions and offred to make amends in the friendship. (You should know it takes A big thing to kill a friendship for me, but it takes a Bigger God to fix them. Friendships are important with the right people.)
It is really hard to say “Here God! take it!” or “Ok!!! God, what should I do?” sometimes more then others. Also, I have noticed nothing happens in singles. It is always more then one problem at a time. They seem to come in storms. But you know what? Nothing will change till you make the decision to lean on God. He is here to help you. To lift you up! Then even when storms come you will be able to find peace and joy during them!
