You are not Invisible

45498055_1204178496387186_5224031364222812160_n

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!

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?”

maxresdefault

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!

GOD is Love, and He loves you!

Hello Everyone,

Lets just jump right in〰️1 John 4:7-21 ( ESV) Says: God Is LoveBeloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. (Jesus) Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in Him, and He in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in Him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as He is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.Wow, that is deep and blunt… We all at times hold resentment or anger aginst others. We get lost in doing doing so. We are only human. This is a great reminder of who we are called to be and who we are in Christ. Furthermore it is a reminder that we are greatly loved by our father God and Jesus Christ.Since it is getting close to Valentines day I thought this would be the perfect topic. To sum it up. God is pure unconditional love! Because He is love – He wants us to be loved. He made us to be loved and to love one another.

Since sin entered the picture, when Adam and Eve ate the apple [Genesis 3:1-6 (NIV) Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.”]To free us from sin God planed to send Jesus out of his pure unconditional love. Jesus -Lived -Died- and was Resurrected, so that we may have a way to be freed of the curse of sin. We are then given a choice to believe in Him or not.

It goes in to say since God is love and Jesus is love when we accept Christ we are filled with the love unlike any I could explain. In with this pure unconditional love we are to love others like Jesus and God does. ~1 John 4:9-10 NIV This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

We aren’t perfect. ~Romans 3:23-26 KJV For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 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; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

but we’re not supposed to hate others. ~Leviticus 19:17-18 KJV Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.

If we hate then we haven’t grasped the depth and purity of the love and we should work on it. ~John 8:5-12 KJV Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

I will leave you with that- Happy Valentines day!

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.

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.

You Matter

Every year here or on my other blog I reflect on my life and I write about the growth I have been through. This year I decided to do something different based on the ministry we are getting off the ground. I did my third official Vlog, where I am on camera speaking to you all. I was really nervous. I pray that me stepping out in faith really bless you all. I love you! You Matter! DOn’t forget that…

Here are the references she mentioned in the video.

We are on Youtube

Howdy!

So I was toying with the idea of creating a  Youtube Channel for some Vlogs or audio recordings for a while now. I  love to write but sometimes it is nice to watch or listen too, right? You don’t want to always read? I felt it was something that should have happened a while ago but I let time and fear put me off till now.  God’s timing is perfect, right?  I faced my fear and I made the channel which I linked below.

Our YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8ayvhYTNT8nz07ab9ytILg

Plus I added some videos I made with the limited resources I had… I used a  voice recording program on my phone and windows media maker. I was really nervous and excited. I pray that theses vlogs and future ones will bless you as well as our future blog posts!

 

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,

Quick news

I, MsLadyBug, have been away for quite some time. I am sorry, I had no internet on the trip I took and was extremely busy. Right now I am the only on the team who has time to write. But I am sure when God has things the rest of the team needs to share it will be written… Just because they do not post does not mean they are inactive. They help me a lot with Bible verses and discussions.

I changed the theme I thought this one was nice and better organized, what do you think? Do you like it or should we change it back??

I posted something other then what I was working on. I guess God wanted me to write on that topic instead. That happens sometime. God has us do something other then what we planed on doing.. So I have a few things to post in the future. And I am working hard on being more regular with he posts but life is very unpredictable right now. I may ask some one else to join the team. If I can not for some reason post more often.. We she see. It is all up to God. He was the one who told me to start this with my team.

God bless you!! Please feel free to post comments and thoughts, even discussions though I may not have the answers I can look for them.
