Realizing That I Miss Him

 For the past year, I have been on this wild roller coaster ride of emotions. I have been happy, sad, emotional, tired, and a times I felt hopeless. Now when I think about these things, I am a bit disappointed in myself because I have such a great God who has made such great promises and kept, that I should never feel hopeless, but I did. "I think an unhappy Christian is an oxymoron. It shouldn't even be in the same sentence." ~Joyce Meyer The truth is that the past year has been really hard. My family and I moved away from all that we knew, besides each other and God. We've had to adjust to a new state and way of life. We have been blessed in so many ways by God, but at times the adjusting period was hard. Now, I have not hated life, but I have found myself in a couple tight corners that I could not see my way out of, but God is faithful. He helped me each and every time to come out. In the past year I have forgotten who I am and who God created me to be. I would even dare to say that I have, at times forgotten how big, strong, powerful , faithful, and loving my God truly is...and because of that I have not exactly enjoyed the rollercoaster of life. I have hidden myself at … [Read more...]

Standing In Faith

Yesterday was a very busy day.¬† While I was overcoming from a bug that I had "somehow" gotten after prayer in my home on Thursday night, it seemed that my children were overcoming same bug as well.¬† So while we didn't go to church, we did have worship, prayer, and service.¬† We watch the web-cast that our church provides and I did my hair while listening to the word. During prayer I called my kids into the room and prayed for their healing.¬† I thank God for children that love Him and have open hearts to hear his word.¬† All of us quickly started feeling better. I watched some of the DVD that I was given by the gentleman at the flea market and I felt the word rise up in my spirit in defense of my Father in heaven.¬† Although I currently don't want to publicize the name of the DVD, I do want to say that it has caused my spirit to be stirred to search out the truth and make the truth known in Jesus' name. I must say that I am very aware of the trickery that is out in this world to steal our hope in God.¬† The enemy doesn't want us to believe that we serve a good God, but instead he wants us to be confused and unwilling to trust God.¬† I thank God that it's not about … [Read more...]

What Will We Believe

The days of our lives are very precious.¬† The seeds that we allow to take root in our hearts and grow are also very important. Today I spoke to a believer who has a space at a local flea market, where he and a couple other believers evangelize.¬† This wasn't the first time I had ever talked to these individuals, but this was the first time that the truth of what they believe had been revealed to me.¬† We had been discussing some key things about faith, when on gentleman gave me a DVD that he had purchased for me to watch.¬† After telling him that I would take the time to watch it.¬† The other gentleman handed me a a paper that he too wanted me to read.¬† I was happy to see that they were taking the time to invest in materials to defend their beliefs, but I really want them to invest their time in finding out if what they believe is biblical.¬† Later in our conversation, I said that it was by Jesus' stripes that we were healed.¬† He asked me if I had become blind, do I believe that if I had the faith to believe God's word that I would be healed?¬† My answer was yes, because Jesus was beaten with 32 lashes for my healing.¬† He let me know that those lashes were for our … [Read more...]
