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

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…

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,

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..

Anointing in Numbers

Tonight I went to a concert where Kuttless, and Casting Crowns. The crowd was huge! Not a single seat left empty in a church that holds thousands. I am not sure how many but I know it was at least a  few thousand. The  church was huge and the staff was nice. I was really excited they are two of my  favored bands. I  found my seat and waited for them to come on.  Everyone was so happy. If you have never been to a Christian concert and you want to I recommend  a “Casting Crowns” one. Not only was there anointing it was fulfilling in many aspects.

* First, seeing a crowd so large was amazing, not only because of the numbers but also the fact that they were all, well mostly Christians. Seeing a crowd of thousands joining in worship was amazing. I was in complete utter Awe…  I began to wonder how many  out there were / are called into the ministry, or have gifts from God. And out of those how  many are not and should be sharing them.  Do you have something God has given you or has called you to do? Are you doing it? If not then why? What is stopping you from following his will on your life. He is more then worth for us to serve. Are you afraid? God choose you and he will give you the tools to do the task. I have been worrying so much about how to fulfill God’s calling on me. Thinking I am not good enough. But March God has been working on that in me and now more then ever I am regretting not following God sooner.  Don’t miss your chance to do God’s work. He called you for a reason so give it your best shot and trust Him to help you through the task. He will and your life will change for the better.

Second, If all us Christians could put our differences aside and come together like I saw tonight we would have so much power over evil. The anointing was so strong, so think I could see  chains falling off  of people all around me, I could feel Evil loosing    his battles in the presence of the Lord. He was there.  Imagine the millions we could save and affect if we could come together like this on a daily basis. Think of the millions of souls we could save.  So why arn’t we? Just like one of their songs. “If we are the Body, why aren’t his  feet walking, why aren’t his arms reaching??” Have you heard it?? Very good motivating Song.. I know I am trying to research others and spread God’s love. Are you?

We need to step up, the end of times is near, I do not believe the 2012 stuff, but the prophecies in the bible about the earth quakes and floods are coming true.. There is a hunger all around us and if it is not filled by God they go after what they think will fill it. I do not want to see my loved ones going to the “dark Side” you may call it. If one person can save just one other person, could you imagine the number of lives we could save if we started standing together, spreading God’s word and be living examples? Could you image the anointing????? The numbers of prayers that would be answered?

If Jesus came back tomorrow would you be ready?

The Power of Prayer!

I just got done reading “This Present Darkness” and it was such a faith building book. If you have never read it I suggest you do. It was a great reminder of how powerful Prayer is. Which is something one should never forget. Prayer is important. It helps build our foundation in faith. Payer what Jesus gave us, we pray using our spirit man. Prayer is our tool and weopon against Evil. I have a bumper sticker on my truck that says “Prayer Changes Everything”  and that is 1oo% true. Even when we can not see the difference, or the change takes time. Prayer is not always easy too, sometimes it is hard, and sometimes we may not know what to say. But that is where our faith, and spirit man kick in.

Ephesians 6:13-18: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Psalms 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Also when we pray it is important that we take time after to be silent and listen. We may not get answers right away but God gives us words of wisdom and guidance.

I hope this helps you with your prayer life, and has inspired you. It has been on my heart since I started the book and now I finally expressed it. God bless you today and always!

!WAIT ON IT!

!WAIT ON IT! magnify

!Wait!

Wait…Wait…Wait…Wait..Wait…Wait…BUT…WAIT!!!…Wait…Wait…wait…Wait…wait…But!…
…………………………………………..WAIT!!!..
……….WAIT………wait………………………………….

OK, NOW!

Do you ever feel like that? You’re waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Because God said Wait! And you feel like the answer, or what you’re praying for may never come. I understand. I have been struggling with a few things and I have been praying about them. Well a few days ago about one main thing I was concerned about. God very clearly told me to. That’s right. WAIT! Oh man has that been hard. But I gave it all to God and I said ok. “Ok God! I know your timing is perfect. Give me the strength I need to wait, and I will.” As soon as I said that it seemed a lot of temptations started to appear. I was surrounded. But I Know, that I know! God’s plan is best plan.

Sometimes we have to wait hours, days, weeks, months, and even years for an answer to a prayer. And it gets very hard, and it can cause anger, stress, and emotional problems. But sometimes it takes time to line up every thing. For Example: We will move out of state one day. Which is my Mothers heart felt prayer. God said Yes. But we are still here four years latter. And she asks why! “Why God, are we still here.” God only knows. Maybe the home she will have is not ready for her. Or the job she will work is not open. Maybe there are other things too that need to fall in to place.

But not all prayers require such a long waiting period. But some do take a wait. And I have leaned for my own “Wait” prayers that they are worth waiting for. Some examples: I had my teddy bear taken from me when I was in the hospital at age twelve. I was mad but I prayed about it I forgave and Trusted God about it. Several years latter I went in to the hospital again. It was over Christmas, and guess what I got. Not just one teddy bear but twenty Teddy bears. They were gifts and donations. What a blessing. I kept some and donated the rest. But God keeps his word. I prayed for a Vehicle and with in a matter of three weeks God blessed me with finding the perfect Vehicle for me and I was able to afford it. I could list many more prayers. But they don’t matter. The point is God keeps his word and answers our needs out hears desire. As long as they will bless and help us bless others and it is in his plan. We want to be in his plan, because then our life is sure to be blessed and a blessing to others.

When you don’t wait on the Lord some times you can mess up the plan God has for you and it takes longer for the answer to come through. I am standing in faith that God has a Man for me. But when I was younger I decided to help God in my search. And I dated a young man for about nine years. I had every intention to marry him. God said No all along but I refused to listen because where else would I find a man who loved me for me. What I didn’t realize he did love me but more so because he didn’t want to be alone. He had no real intention of ever marrying me. And finally I realized I was living what I wanted, and I was holding both of us back from what God has for us. Sure it wasn’t a complete waste; God brought some good from it. But what did I miss out on, while making my own path? I know I fell away from God a bit in my studies. (He was not a Godly man.) I believed I was not worth anyone but his love, I let my self go. “I am good enough with just getting by.” That was my way of thinking. Which I know now is wrong. You need to be all you can and then some. I want to be so much I want to bless you and the ones I know. I want to be a woman of God, some one he, my heavenly (and earthly) father can be proud of. I want to spread God’s love to every one and I want NO ONE to go to hell. But that is your choice to want. I can only give you what I know and pray for you.

So… Please, WAIT on the Lord and keep your faith in Him. He has not forgotten you, he knows your heart. He is your father too! Thank God for the objective you’re praying about and stand firm. Don’t waver.

God Bless you!!
