Do not be afraid to ask

Please watch this short video message before reading the rest of the message below. Thanks!

Before we dig in: For more info what happened to me. I posted blogs on: https://wordpress.com/post/amyjanesandberg.com/ and https://deeplyrootedinhim.net/2019/08/11/that-did-not-go-as-i-planned

Now – Asking God for help isn’t always easy. Espessily if you do not believe, in God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit. Why bother asking? I believe in Jesus, I do not believe I would be alive if it wasn’t for Him. LITERALLY! There have been so many close calls…

However, even if you do believe, you may still struggle for several other reasons. Such as these: 1- It is an issue you have been dealing with for a long time. 2- It feels like it is too small a concern to bother God with. 3- You may have no idea where to start or how to ask. 4- You may not feel worthy enough to ask. I could go on, but only you know what it is holding you back from asking. GratefullyRestored and I have been talking a lot about standing in faith and overcoming obstacles and trials you may be faced with. That starts with asking God for help. When we do that we are submitting our issues and saying “Okay God, Jesus, Holy Spirit – please help me! I give my stress and burdens to you. I trust you to take care of me!” It is not easy to admit we need help, but that isn’t admitting defeat. Instead, think of it as calling in the troops and saying let’s get this done!

Let me say this… God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit love you. I believe in Love. Love is powerful! Love makes a huge difference! Know you are loved and the fact that I believe Jesus died for everyone – no matter what race, gender, or choices you make. John 3:16 Then why wouldn’t He want to answer your need, your prayer, your request? Hmm? It is up to you what you do with that knowledge. It is not my place to tell you what to do. It’s your life and your choice. I do want to say tho – Miracles are real, You are loved, and you are not alone if you don’t wanna be. I have hope and faith in my Father God. That gives me strength trusting that they’re out there with me and looking out for me. When you are desperate and you don’t know what to say just call out to Jesus… “Jesus… I need you! Jesus!!!” It is as easy as that.

📖 Bible Verses:

✞Pslams 103 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalms+103&version=NKJV
✞ Psalms 104 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalms+104&version=NLT

✞Matthew 6:26-34 (New King James Version) Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

✞ Matthew 7:7-8 (King James Version) 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. (King James Version)

✞ Psalm 37:4 (New International Version) Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

✞ 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?”

✞ John 3:16 (TheLivingBible) For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son[a] so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

✞ 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. 12 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. (New Living Translation)

✞ 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.

✞ 2 Timothy 2:1-2 (King James Version) You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.

✞ 2 Timothy 1:7 (King James Version) God hath not given us the spirit of fear ; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

✞ Romans 8:28 (New International Version) And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

✞ Isaiah 53:1-7 (TheLivingBible) But, oh, how few believe it! Who will listen? To whom will God reveal his saving power? In God’s eyes[a] he was like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry and sterile ground. But in our eyes there was no attractiveness at all, nothing to make us want him. We despised him and rejected him—a man of sorrows, acquainted with bitterest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way when he went by. He was despised, and we didn’t care. Yet it was our grief he bore, our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, for his own sins! But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed—and we were healed! We—every one of us—have strayed away like sheep! We, who left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet God laid on him the guilt and sins of every one of us! He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he never said a word. He was brought as a lamb to the slaughter; and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he stood silent before the ones condemning him.

✞ 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.

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!

Merry Christmas 2013

 I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! And A Blessed New Year!!!

This is my favored time of year for many reasons Such as: The weather and the fact that I love the holiday season.  Thanksgiving through New Year’s… All because of: the giving, sharing, thankfulness, anticipation of new, beginnings, joy, and so much more in the air. I love the lights, the trees, the food, and most of all the family you generally get to spend time with. Family,  close friends and relatives.. (Usually)

Sadly though, this time of year brings stress, anger, and loneliness to a lot of people. This is the first year in a  a couple of years I have not felt so lost in emotions…. We all worry about if we have enough time to do what we want to do, do we have enough money, will our friends and families enjoy our efforts. And then there are those of us who do not have the pleasure of having people in our lives to share this time with and it brings out anger, resentment, and deepens the loneliness and pain. I know this all too well over the past few years for sure. They have been hard… I barely celebrated. But there is something really special. No matter what every Christmas Eve.. I get filled with this amazing peace and my heart fills with unexplainable thankfulness and all. I find myself staring at the Christmas tree and or lights for hours not thinking anything just in awe… It all started when I awoke from the coma in 1997 Just 2 days before Christmas… Maybe because of the many close encounters with death I am more sensitive to the holidays… This year it wasn’t my closeness with death that was faced. I lost my oldest brother to cancer…. But then in November my youngest sister Got married…. Such a wide variety of emotions….  I know for many this was a very hard year, but many of us have been blessed despite the troubles… Such as my parents finding a house after almost 4 years of searching… It never amazes me what God can do….. I know next year I and many others, feel it will be a year of closure and togetherness.. I am looking forward to that tho I feel the past few years have gone by way to fast… I hope to share some good things with you in the future tho. Like some books in the next year!!!

I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! It is not about the Receiving, it’s about the joy of togetherness, the Giving of love and companionship… So many I know have been blessed with wonderful mates while others are still alone.. Our time will come singles! God’s timing is perfect and He or she will be exactly what we need… And more then we could ever want!!

This was supposed to be a sweet note of love, sorry I went on…   I pray if you don’t know Jesus yet you take the opportunity to ask into your heart tonight…  Don’t waste time waiting for the right moment or to be perfect. He loves you as you are and there is no better timing then now…  Having a relationship with Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit is the best Gift I could share with anyone… God after all gave the best Gift Jesus… And that is what Christmas is all About… Celebrating his Birth, His life, and His Death so that we may be free of the chains of sin and be blessed with Eternal life!!!   It’s easy just read this out loud.

“Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge I need you. (You do need Him) I welcome you Jesus into my heart, for you are the way and the truth and the light. (John 14:6)  Please forgive me of my sins and be a part of my life form now on.. Thank you Amen”       Now go tell  someone what you did.

John 10:10

The devil comes to steal form you, to Kill you, and to Destroy you, but I come to bring you life and to bring it Abundantly.

You are Loved,

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.
