Faith Always

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

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

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

📖Bible Verses:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rejoice in the Lord, Always!

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

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

We can not live in fear! “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Nothing gets done in fear. We need to walk in faith. There is power in our faith, in our words, in trusting God. Joshua chapter 6”By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.” Hebrews 11:30

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

Living a Miracle Life..

My Miracle Life.. God’s Unfailing Love.

Where do I start. I guess at the beging. I was born with Trunkis Arteriosis. (1) I was sent home to die, but lived to be 7months. So a dr, did a experiment surgery on me. He said I would need to have surgery every 2 years for updates. (2) However I didn’t need one till I was 12. They put in hemograh valves. (using pig tissue) During surgery the heart and lung machine failed for a few seconds and I had a major stoke. I had burst blood vessels on all four lobes of my brain. I was declared brain dead. They said if I ever woke up I would be paralyzed. My liver shut down, and I was not breathing on my own. I had my family and friends praying over me. My mom was reading bible verses over me and two weeks latter she read. “The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I have come to bring life and to bring it Abundantly. John 10:10” I opened my eyes. My mom was in happy shock, then she asked me if she wanted me to read more bible verses that I liked, if yes to squeeze her hand. And I did. I had a full recovery after being brain dead and in a coma for two weeks. The neurologist never came back to see me he did not want to admit it happened. He wrote in my official record “To every one’s surprise she awoke.” (3) I was great till I was 17 when they found your body rejects certain tissues as a teen. So they decided I needed another surgery. This time they rebuilt my heart with donated tissue. I was the 3rd person in the world to have this done. During recovery I caught (R.D.S.) repository distress syndrome and one of my lungs collapsed. They decided that I should be put in an artificial coma to recover. it took almost 2 moths. I woke up on Christmas eve. (Christmas has since been extremely important to me.) They said I would never fully recover from that, but I have been fine. (4) It was my 20th birthday, I had a new car, redone. I was going on a road trip. My engine suddenly died and I was able to pull over to the side of the road. My friend volunteered to get out and look while I the rest of us the car. I heard “Get out of the car, it is on fire.” So I told every one to get out. And there was a gas leak dripping on to the eghast. The car burst int to flames almost as soon as we got out. Thankfully a semi truck had seen the fire under my car, and had called the fire department before we had even pulled over. We were all ok. (Strangely the tile and other important papers in the car were not damaged. (5) I forget the exact year I was about twenty three, and I was having bad pains for several moths. One day while driving I was in a car accident. And my pains were still there. I had just moved and went to a new dr. The dr said it was my gallbladder, and I needed it out immediately. Thanks to that surgery they found internal bleeding which had developed from the car accident. That there were no common sings too. (6) And most recent, I was about 25 on a generic brand of blood thinner. And I started feeling weird, lost control of my mortar skills in my hand. I told my sister to take me to the hospital. I told the woman I was having a stoke. She didn’t believe me at first. So I started praying out loud. Suddenly I started loosing my speech too. So she knew I was not lying and I was rushed back. They told me I had suffered another major stroke.  I am one of the rare pople that the generic brand does not work on.  I fully recovered within 5days. I from that day on I promised God, that I would tell others of what he has done for me. No one understood how or why I recovered so fast when I really should not have.

But I know it is because God takes care of his children. Which I have been reminded of recently. So that is my story.. And I am writing a more detailed version in a book. Feel free to tell others if you like.
Psalms 1o4 is a good chapter reminding us who God is and that cares for us, down to the littlest detail.

1Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. 2Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: 3Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: 4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: 5Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. 6Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. 7At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. 8They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. 9Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.10He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills. 11They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst. 12By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches. 13He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. 14He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; 15And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart. 16The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 17Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 18The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies. 19He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down. 20Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 21The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. 22The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens. 23Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. 24O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. 25So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. 26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. 27These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season. 28That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good. 29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. 30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth. 31The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works. 32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke. 33I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. 35Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.

“The eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love.” ~Psalms 33:18

O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.

But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God.I will always trust in God’s unfailing love.

Psalm 90:14
Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.

Do notice a pattern, do you understand better? God’s gives us Unfailing Love. I am so glad I have that. I hope you realize you have it too. If not, I hope you lean that soon.

God’s Masterpice! Please Watch!

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!

God Bless You!!
