Anoint your home in JESUS name.

passover43

I was praying tonight about the dream I had where I marked our doors with the blood of the lamb. I just liked they did in the Bible for Passover. [As the story goes, during the tenth and final plague, God passes through the land of Egypt and strikes down the firstborn of every household. But the Jews have been told to mark their doors with the blood of a lamb they’ve sacrificed — the Passover offering — and so God “passes over” their homes.-Vox 2014 ] Full story is in Exodus Chapter 12.

🤔I was thinking and praying how and why is it different from how we usually anoint our home? With oil or water on the inside door frames and windows. Then it hit me, I saw me doing it in the dream on the outside of the house. THE OUTSIDE door frames! So then I asked if not blood how about grape juice, no wine we don’t have any and honestly both stain.😒 Wait? Is that the point? To leave a visual line and faith message? I pondered…🤔🤨🥴

Then I heard “What is the blood of the lamb”🐑

Well since Jesus is the Lamb [John 1:36 (KJV) And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!🐑]  I replied “Jesus’s blood.”

“And what was the point of him shedding his blood?”

Then I saw Jesus on the Cross in shambles bleeding [✝️Mark 15:25-26 (KJV) And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. And the superscription of his accusation was written over, The King Of The Jews. ✝️Mathew 26:28 (NIV) This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.]

Then the 🕊Dove descending. [Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you, I am well pleased.”]

I heard as if a whisper “what does the dove represent?” Then I saw the apostles👥🗣 preaching how all about Holy Spirit how it was now among us and how we have the power and anointing thanks to Jesus’s sacrifice.

[ 🕊 2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  🕊[Romans 5:5 (NIV) And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.🕊[Jude 1:20-21 (NIV) But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. 🕊[John 14:26 (NIV) But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 🕊[Romans 5:5 (NIV) And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.🕊]

🤩And it clicked. We are to anoint our door frames outside with oil or water, or <I’m pretty sure we should use frankincense tho> IN JESUS JESUS NAME! [Acts 3:6 (NIV) Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”]💗💘

😄- Now I know I probably didn’t need to be told or shown all that in the manner I was. But wow… I am glad that is how I was tho. 😇🥰

Why do you need to anoint you home? To protect your family from sickness and evil that may try to attack you and your family. That is one reason why we arm ourselves with the armor of God 🕊[Ephesians 6:10-18] and claim [🕊Psalms 91] over our homes, vehicles, loved ones and selves.

How do you anoint your home? Some people ask their pastor or priest. You should know tho, we also have the anointing. We revived it when we accepted  ✝️ Jesus Christ, God,  and the 🕊Holy Spirit into our hearts we have the anointing as stated above in the verses. 💕[Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV) Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.]

An example of this is 🕊 [Acts 3: 6-7 (KJV) Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.]

To do this we are to do it in faith. ✨[Hebrews 11:1 King James Version (KJV)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.] What I was taught to do is to take water or oil and with dip your fingertips in either. Using them draw a line across the top of the doors and windows. I usually do it down the sides of the door frame and windows of the home and even our vehicle and we while doing so I pray. “Claim Palms 91 over our house, protection from diseases, sickness, physical, and spiritual attacks against my family and my family. Anyone who has evil intent, or spirits attached will be freed when they come over. In Jesus name Amen!🕊

No matter how difficult things get, its good to remember that Jesus Died and came back so we may be live. The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I (Jesus ) comes to being life and to bring it Abundantly! [ John 10:10 Amen!] Thank you for Life!

I wasn’t sure how detailed I should be but then I found this, you should also Remember, [Luke 4:18-20 (NIV) “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him.

God bless you today and always!

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.

KNOW and Do

Part 1 and 2 videos by Greatfuly Restored: “Know and Do part 1 and Part 2” Uploaded with the YouTube studios app since I’m unable to get on a computer at this time. I will update preview to images and the discretions next week. We didn’t want to wait until next week to share. We also wanted to try something new. Let us know if you like this new close up format vs how it was done before please and thank you!

🎤This isn’t an easy topic to discuss, but because of Jesus, we have a choice to be forgiven and redeemed. God loves you and there is no such thing as a perfect person. You can not earn your way to heaven. It is a choice you make to ever believe or not believe. Once you accept Jesus it cannot be taken away unless you decide you do not believe anymore or if you denounce Jesus. According to the Bible. God knows your heart and it is your personal walk… Ask – Seek – Knock…

📖Bible Verses:

✞ Ephesians 1: 7 (New International Version)
In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

✞ Galatians 3:13 – 14 (King James Version)
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

✞ Proverbs 15:24 (New King James Version )
The way of life winds upward for the wise,
That he may turn away from hell below.

✞ Romans 6:23 (English Standard Version)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

✞ 2 Peter 3: 8-9 New Life Version (NLV)
Dear friends, remember this one thing, with the Lord one day is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years are as one day. The Lord is not slow about keeping His promise as some people think. He is waiting for you. The Lord does not want any person to be punished forever. He wants all people to be sorry for their sins and turn from them.

✞ John 3:18 (English Standard Version)
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

✞ Colossians 1:12-14 (New International Version)
and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

✞ Romans 10: 9 -10 (New International Version)
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved

✞ John 1:12-13 (New International Version) Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

✞ Matthew 7:7-8 (New International Version)
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

✞ Revelation 3: 20 (Living Bible)
“Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me.

✞Isaiah 43:1-3 (New Life Version)
But now the Lord Who made you, O Jacob, and He Who made you, O Israel, says, “Do not be afraid. For I have bought you and made you free. I have called you by name. You are Mine! When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not flow over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. The fire will not destroy you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, Who saves you.

🧩As God Promised Jacob then, He promises it for you now, as well now. The rainbow is Gods Proof that he is for us not against us. That was before Jesus came to think about how much more we have now with Jesus.

🥁 You are Loved and you are blessed and you are redeemed if you wish to be.

✞ Isaiah 40:1-2 (New Life Version)
“Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God. “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, That her warfare is ended, That her iniquity is pardoned;
For she has received from the Lord’s hand Double for all her sins.”

✞1 Samuel 16: 14 – 23

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!

Have a Servant’s Heart

Dear Friends,

We Christians are called to have a Servant’s heart. A servant heart is a precious gift.  A heart after people, a heart of Love. I am often reminded of how even Jesus washed feet of his disciples. (Matthew 26:14-39; Luke 22:24-27; John 13:1-17) It takes a lot to set aside your self to serve others. And even Jesus Did it! I am not saying go wash some ones feet. I am saying we are called to serve others, And God will bless you more it. When you serve, you are taking time to show others how important and special they are. That’s Love. I was once asked “Even in serving aren’t you being selfish still? Because you’re doing it expecting something.” Yes I’m expecting God to work through me to bless you. Or whomever I’m led to serve… I write and pour out my heart you you all. Because I truly care about you. (Does that make me selfish. Maybe… But if so I think in a good way.) That love I have only grew as I gave my life to God’s will. Your pastor is a Servant. It takes a strong person to serve. Because it’s not a easy job. a servant gives up a lot, such as: free will, pride, wants, control, even some freedom. You don’t have to do all that, maybe God has not called you to be a servant. But we all serve from time to time. next time you do ask yourself. Is my heart in the right place as I do this. Below are some more Bible verses on having a servant’s heart…

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,

Hungry

Hungry

I have notice so many people are hungry now days. Not hungry by the lack of food, but emotionally, mentally, and physically.  People are searching for something that will fill where they are lacking.  But in things that won’t really help.  Such as: Sex, alcohol, gambling, false idols.

We as the human race are at the time of major changes personally and globally.  Change is hard and so many people are looking for something to cling to sustain them, especially, now around the holidays.

I noticed around Christmas I begin to think about the year past, all I didn’t accomplish, achieve, and am still lacking… I specifically seem to dwell on failures and what I don’t have yet in my life. For example, I should have a book done by now, I wish I had my boyfriend here to share the holidays with. As a result; I get more sensitive, cranky, and lonely….

But then Christmas Eve rolls around and I become extremely thankful for what I have, and all that has happened, and those in my life….   The holiday’s takes a toll on us: Families, friends, money, gifts you want to give and get, trying to prepare the perfect atmosphere for a few days…..  It can be very overwhelming…  One becomes desperate, anxious, hungry…..  It just has to be “PERFECT”.

This year more than other years I realize people seem more then desperate, they are starving for acknowledgment, closeness, success, achievement.. Yet most are going the wrong way. Instead of turning to God, they are running to what they think will fill the void, only to find it growing deeper…

I have also realized that Christmas is one month out  of the year, better yet  only for my family about 36 hours of festivities… Then next we bring in the New Year, and the cycle starts over….  Nothing really changes……

This year I am choosing to skip the pity party that seem to have already started and go straight to that thankful atmosphere. By doing so, I lose a lot of wasted time, and by choosing to be happy, I hope I can help others be happy around me…. But it starts with a choice. I have to choose to change. It is not going to be easy, but nothing really worth it is easy… I am not going to dig a hole and burrow in my emotions; instead I am asking God for hand up, and joy to replace the stress, grief, loneliness, and frustration….

I am filling up on God’s word, I am eating the preaching’s of the pastors I love and drinking in the scriptures my friends are sharing…  I am not close to becoming full yet, but I am also not starving anymore, not in the way I was before.  I wish I could feed everyone this way too. So that they will not be hungry anymore! I pray for all the lost sheep out there. The people who don’t know what they are looking for…

I want to be a good example of Christ and who He is, so that the hungry people around me can be fed…

I urge you to look to God to fill   your plate. Not the internet, not the tv, not shopping, nor in other people. What you’re looking for can only be found in one place…  In Christ! I do not know how to explain it however once you let Christ in your life changes and you no longer fill empty, if you truly let Him in… I still feel lonely, not in the same way…

Don’t wait till Christmas to unwrap this Gift. It’s yours now, waiting with your name on it. For God so loved YOU, He gave His only Begotten son, Jesus Christ, so that who so ever believes in Him, shall have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16

If you already have Him in your heart I suggest you reevaluate your relationship and do as I am and submerse yourself in His word! Give yourself the best Christmas of all, and remember the reason for the season. He is the greatest comfort!

God Bless you,

Merry Christmas~

A New Song, Is Published!

Hello My friends and Family,

I am so excited to tell you “A New Song” Has finally Been published!!!

I am not sure where to start. When I was asked to contribute to this book, I became excited at the opportunity to share my story, God’s story! But as I actually sat down to write it, I became afraid, that I would not be able to convey the message properly and that I could disappoint those who may be expecting me to write a masterpiece. I am presently struggling with some books that I also am writing. I am sure God is using this opportunity as a push. He is telling me to just do it, while using this opportunity to boost my confidence too. I know God wants me to share this story in any way that I can. He is opening new doors daily, not just for me but for you as well. We just need to walk through them – even if at times we have to crawl through. Whatever it takes for us to move forward, keep growing, and to help others do the same.

Any ways! Here is a note from the main editor, with the book Poster below.

Hi Everyone,
I just heard from our printer about the book’s final price for 192 pages with contributions from 53 authors, 17 photographers/artists, and a beautiful color cover with semi-exposed Wire-0 binding that allows the book to open flat.

If we order 500– the cost will be $15/book
If we order 1,000 — the cost will be $13/book

So far, I have received orders for 237. Please let me know how many you plan to order so that I can get the best price.

Thank you,

Diane Kulkarni

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!!!

A few Questions & Answers

Is it just me or does it seem harder to vocalize your faith now days.. It seems a lot of people now days are hating Christians… I know the bible says it is inevitable, but that makes it a bit harder to express God’s love. Especially when the ones who need to know they are loved the most hate the even mention of Faith.. And God…

So I was wondering how do you get around it?   Personally I just love them and I try and live a good example. One of the best examples is when I mess up and I get caught (Don’t do that on purpose) Like when I say a curse word which is rare, or when I get mad. They say “I thought you were a Christian.” And I reply “I am, but I am also human. God loves me no matter what and that is one of the reasons I am living for him.

Anther question I have been asked is “Does God Love Every One”     Yes God does. He sent his only son Jesus Christ to die on the cross, to be beaten and whipped for us. “John 3:16” the full book of John is all about Jesus..

“Does God love Even Murders and Child Abusers”  Yes… Love and like are two totally different things. I LOVE my family but I definitely don’t like them all the time.. I don’t think God dislikes any one but I do know he dislikes our actions when we go against the ten Commandments. Exodus chapter 20. But that does not mean he does not LOVE them. Every one is held accountable for there actions, and every one will have to ask for forgiveness some time or another. If we do not that that is between God and the person. Do you haven to love every one no. Should we.. I think so.. Does that mean we do. No.. And we should not let people off for harming others..  But I feel we should pray for them I wish no one time in Hell. Though I did at one point. A man who abused my baby sister for a while.  But God dealt with me. I don’t wish him eternal damnation.. But I also do not like him.. And am glad he is out of our lives where ever he lives now..
