Can USA Be Saved?

Lord, can USA be saved? Is there any hope? The USA looks as though it’s headed toward the end. The Bible doesn’t mention the USA. So are we headed toward the end of our country?

No My child. USA can be saved. After all, I have promised.

Can USA be saved?

Then if My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.                                                                             II Chronicles 7:14 NLT

Lord, there’s violence throughout this land, riots, looting and killing. In addition, they’re tearing down statues pertaining to history. And they even tore down a statue of a rock singer. What did he have to do with their conflict? Nothing that I know of. It seems they just want to destroy without purpose.Chaos Everywhere

Now Lord, they’re planning to destroy statues of Jesus and break stain glass windows of Jesus. Why? I know You don’t care about statues of Yourself especially due to the 2nd of the Ten Commandments (See Exodus 20).

But Lord, they are planning to break the stain glass windows depicting Your life. These stain glass windows are so beautiful. I hate to see them destroyed.

The children of Israel cried when their temple was destroyed. But I was still with them. And I’m still here with USA too. My Presence is still here.

When the Israelites went into captivity, I brought them through. Now My Israel is a strong people. They have many problems, but they are strong nonetheless.

Yes, there is hope for the USA for I am their hope. Statues are not their hope. Stain glass windows are not their hope. And certainly politicians are not their hope, no matter how popular or powerful.  I AM THEIR HOPE.

Lord, what about all these cities that have bad people taking over and declaring themselves to be a country within our country? Can USA be saved from them?Can USA be saved?

Child, know that I am in charge and I am in control no matter what you see. How many times do I have to tell you? “Don’t look at what you see. Instead, look at Me.”

Yes, there is hope for I AM THEIR HOPE. If they will turn back to Me I will save them. I will deliver them. 

You heard of revival in Iran and how millions are turning to Christ. I can do the same in USA. There is hope for USA, for I am the hope. 

Can USA be saved?
Take a Knee before Christ.

Pray without ceasing. Yes, My child, pray constantly throughout your day. And fasting wouldn’t hurt you either. As a matter of fact it would make you stronger and increase your faith. So pray and fast for an increase in power and strength.Also quit looking at what you see. Instead look at Me. I will save the USA for I am their hope. Look to My Word and you will find peace. 

No matter what man does, he cannot destroy ME. For I am victory. Statues and stain glass windows are just things, but nothing, nothing can destroy My kingdom or My power. Remember that, for I am victory. And I win over all.

When the people turn their hearts to Me, I’ll save the USA. I will save the people, even the so-called bad people. Watch and see what I will do. (See Exodus 6:1)

Words of Hope

Be strong and let your hearts take courage, all you who wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalms 31:24

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you. Deuteronomy 31:6 

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you  up with My victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 

The godly will never be disturbed, but the wicked will be removed form the land. Proverbs 10:30 NLT

Take this most seriously: A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is eternal. I mean this. When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of Me, you can be sure that I’ll be there. Matthew 18:18 MSG

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. –           I Corinthians 15:57 NKJV 

 

Healing Begins Today

Healing begins today, Child. In fact, I’m going to use all the destruction and death you see now, even wrongful death, to bring about My healing for this land. And it begins today.Healing Begins Today

Lord, we all need You. So can You turn all this around? To begin with, we need revival. Specifically, we need a great move of Your Holy Spirit across this land.

Today, my own son plans to complete a prayer walk around his city’s courthouse. Likewise, maybe we all should do a prayer walk around our cities and throughout our land.

So Lord, can You turn all this around?

Yes Child, I can turn all things around and I will. Now watch and you’ll see what I will do.

Again Child, I tell you I’m going to use all this destruction and death, even wrongful death, to bring about healing to this land. Yes, healing begins today.

Healing Begins Today

Thank you Lord.

Yes Child, healing begins today. 

Also, I did not cause all this strife and heartache. No, Satan did for He is the cause of all destruction and death. His desire is to kill, steal, and destroy. But I am going to turn all things around. 

Lord, You’re our only hope. Only You can bring healing to hearts, broken hearts, grieving hearts, and even sick hearts.

Child, soon you will hear testimonies of those who once looted and destroyed with hearts full of anger and hate. Soon you will hear them say, “But God. But God intervened and changed my heart. Now I want to serve Him and spread forth the message of His love for mankind.”

Today healing begins. 

Lord, I look forward to hearing these testimonies. We all need to hear a good report of some kind.

First, we had CV-19. Then we witnessed unmerciful death. And then we witnessed riots full of destruction with more unmerciful deaths. Lord, it all looks hopeless.

Stay Home

But My child, wait until you see what I now will do across this land. Watch and see what I do. 

Look throughout My Word. Every time things looked hopeless for My people, I stepped in and brought  forth My victory. Every time.

So from now on, every time things look hopeless, look to Me. Remember what I’ve told you many times. “Don’t look at what you see. Instead look at Me.”

Look to Me, for I am peace and joy. I am real love, love that can’t be explained. Never look to mankind for true love. They are incapable. But always look to Me, for I AM LOVE. 

When My love enters a heart completely, then a life can be changed, truly changed. 

So keep your eyes on Me and what I do. You are going to see and hear of many miracles of changed lives. Watch and see what I do.

Peace of Heart and Peace of Mind

God is your victory
The Presence of God is your victory.

Peace of heart and peace of mind is the greatest prosperity there is. And My plans are to give My people a hope and a future, not to harm them, but to prosper them.

So come to Me. For I am always here for you . Yes, I know all about the needs, and heartaches throughout the world. And I am concerned over each individual right where they are. Each story is different and each life is different. But I am concerned over every minute detail of each and every life. 

I am immediately by the side of all who cry out to Me – to provide comfort, strength, knowledge, and yes, even healing.

I am not a God who chooses which person to go to. No, instead each person chooses whether to invite Me to come be with them or not.

I do not go where I am not invited. But I am the Almighty All and everything to those who do invite Me to be in their life. I bring hope where there is no hope. I bring comfort where their is no comfort. And I bring love where there is no love. Above all, I bring peace. Peace of heart, Peace of Mind

Some people can’t forgive themselves. Therefore they resent Me and blame Me for the way their life turned out. But I offer complete forgiveness and a new beginning to all who invite Me into their life. 

Yes, the world is in trouble. But I have come to bring peace, true peace to hearts and true peace to minds. If only they would invite Me in, then I could bring them peace within the storm.

Lord, there is so much hate.

Child, there is always hate and there will be until I bring forth the new heaven and the new earth. 

Although, . . . hate  can be destroyed one heart at a time.

As they open their hearts to Me to receive My Presence, I will remove their hate and replace it with My love. 

But it takes an invitation and a yielded heart before I will enter in with My Presence. Otherwise, I do not go where I am not invited. 

God gives true peace
God gives true peace.

I am not a God who forces Himself on individuals. Instead I am a God who waits to be invited in. But to those who invite Me in, I am everything they need. 

Mainly I am peace, peace of mind and peace of heart. I am peace, strength, courage, and most of all I am love, not hate.

When you see hate, know that I am not there. 

There is a war happening now, a war over minds and a war over hearts. But know this – I will win! I always win for I am the Almighty!

And My plans are to give My people a hope and a future, not to harm them, but to prosper them. The greatest prosperity is peace, peace of heart and peace of mind. 

Now come to Me. Then you can watch and see what I will do within your life. Look for Me. As you open your eyes, you will see My love for you. I AM your Victory!

Peace of Mind and Peace of Heart

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefor we will not fear, . . . Psalm 46:1-2

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

So Many Suffering

Lord, there’s so many suffering. Do You love them? (**See note at end.)

Yes, My Child. I do love them. They have even more grace and love toward them than they know- for I am by their side.

So Many Suffering
photo by AC

One does not have more of My love than another. But one may have a greater grace extended toward them  just to make it through the hard places in their life. 

Hard places are not necessarily the result of their sins or to show off My power as I deliver them out of their hard places. No, instead hard places are just life as it is on Earth. Satan rules throughout this Earth. But I rule over everything, including Satan. Remember that fact.

There’s only one thing I will not, can not rule over. That’s man’s “free will”.

At the beginning, I gave mankind power, the keys to Earth. Then mankind through disobedience chose to give his keys to Satan. So I stepped in, but the power of good and evil had already been released. 

There’s no knowledge of good without the knowledge of evil to contrast. When they ate the fruit of the forbidden tree, the knowledge of good and evil brought forth the ability to choose, free will, death, and rebellion. In other words, the knowledge of good and evil brought forth sin.

Satan brought his rebellion, hatred, and revenge to Earth, along with death and destruction. So much suffering. There are so many innocent suffering along with the guilty. It grieves My Spirit. 

That’s why I came and poured out My blood. I came to cleanse and deliver, to set free from this curse of evil.

Satan is a liar. I AM the truth. In addition I provide the one true love and grace. My love and grace is sufficient to cover ALL sin.

Soon and very soon Satan will be destroyed and he knows it. Therefore he goes about destroying all he can, bringing forth destruction and death.

My time has come. Satan and the suffering he causes will be destroyed. I AM bringing forth new life, new freedom, and complete truth. I AM all. And I AM power. Therefore I AM.

Excited About My Funeral

Yes, you heard right. I’m excited about my funeral. Last week Hubby and I attended a funeral presentation which involved free food. Wouldn’t you know. They fed us as we listened. Free food is always good. Hubby says the way to a woman’s heart is feed her first.

The funeral director didn’t win my heart but they did make us an offer we couldn’t refuse. Now I’m excited about my funeral. Isn’t that just crazy?

To begin with, while we were eating, the funeral staff explained about the burial policys our parents bought back in 1956. I had records where my parents paid $1.27 every four months until it was paid it in full.

If we chose to cash the policy, it was worth $300. But if we chose to apply this policy toward our funeral, it’s worth $7,500. That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse, especially given the cost of today’s funeral.

Since we don’t want our children and grandchildren having garage sales and bake sales to pay for our funeral, we signed up.

Here’s what we get:

(1) Insurance to finish paying for the funeral in case we pass on before it’s paid in full. Sounds good to me, especially if I go before it’s paid for. Love a bargain.

(2) Transportation if we pass away when out of town. And we do plan to travel. So if the Lord chooses to take us home from the Grand Canyon, Alaska, or Hawaii, our transportation to the funeral home is covered. Sounds good to me.

(3) An Everlasting film of our life to show to all our family and friends. For once, I’ll be a movie star. How about that? Do you think I’ll see it from Heaven?

(4) Oh, and our children will get a beautiful memory book (for free) of our life to place on their coffee table. Uh, . . no that might be too much to ask.

(5) We did choose the cheapest casket. But who cares? After all, we won’t be there, just our shell.  We’ll be in Glory land. So what does it matter?

So it’s my party and I’ll plan it how I want to.  I know I can write my wishes for all to know. Also, I know my children will do what ever they want to. So it’s another “who cares moment”.

Now here’s the fun part-

I don’t care about a casket spray. Nope. Instead, I want a REAL SUGAR ICING BIRTHDAY CAKE from Wal Mart.  This makes perfect sense to me. Why waste money on expensive flowers that’ll be thrown on the ground?  And after all, I’ll have a new birthday in Heaven. So why not celebrate with me?

Excited about my funeral
They can put Mom on my cake.

Also, don’t you think it’ll make everyone laugh when they see a birthday cake on top of my casket? What fun!

For another good idea:

Instead of everyone spending big money on flowers, how about bringing canned goods to my funeral. Then donate it to Community Missions to feed the needy. Since I’m a foodie, you’re bringing food to my funeral. Fitting, don’t you think?

Maybe if it’s close to Christmas, you could just make a contribution to the Christmas store at our church to help needy families provide Christmas for their children. Since I love Christmas, this sounds great to me.

Songs I want at my funeral:

  1. Jesus Loves Me – Everyone sing this. For the second verse sing “Jesus Loves You” to the person sitting next to you.
  2.  Give Me Jesus– Yep, He’s my best friend. I do hope you know Him as your best friend too.
  3. Victory in Jesus- 
  4.  In The Garden

What I want placed in “there” with me:

  1.  The small birthday cake, previously on top of the casket, or at least a piece of it. Hee, hee. I might want a snack. Don’t forget the fork.
  2.   A cheap Bible from the Dollar Store. I like to think my children and grandchildren would want one of the Bibles I read. They’re in the closet of the Parlor/Prayer room. Not bragging, but there’s seven or more.
  3.  My cell phone- Maybe one of my old ones will do. Yep, I admit it, love that cell phone. A cousin asked me, “Who are you going to call?” My answer to her was, “You never know.”

Now, can you understand why I excited about my funeral? I expect to have some fun there. What about you?

Can’t wait to see my Jesus. Do you know Him as your Savior? If not, just take a minute to talk with Him. Ask for His forgiveness for your sins. Then ask Him to fill your heart with His sweet Holy Spirit. If you ask, He will come.

Consider this:

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. Psalms 116:15

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.  Philippians 1:21 

That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:15, 16

 

Walk In Obedience

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to Him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Psalm 128:1-2 NIV

__________________________

You know Lord . . . I didn’t walk in obedience yesterday. And now I’m here before You asking for forgiveness again, yet another time. Because I know I don’t deserve it, Your love amazes me.

Please help me walk in obedience today. And please forgive me. We both know that I didn’t bring You any honor, glory, and praise yesterday. Help me to fulfill Your will in all I do, say, think, and even to what I eat in Jesus’ name.

Lord, . . . all I can say is I’m sorry.

Child, I’m sorry too. You could have had victory, supernatural victory. But now you don’t. Instead you have weight gain. 

Yes Sir.

So you didn’t weigh yourself today, did you?

No Sir.Romans 8:28 and trust

I see . . . if only you would come to Me. Then I could deliver you from this bondage. After all, I have many plans of victory for you. 

Oh Lord, I do want victory.

Then come here to Me. 

Yes Lord, here I am.

Know that you are Mine and nothing can change that. I love you, My child. 

Sir, I love You too. I’m sorry I wasted yesterday. I do want to serve You. Yesterday, I know You saw it all.

Yes Child, but I’m not giving up on you.

You Answered Me, God

. . . When I called, You answered me and You strengthened me with strength (mighty and inflexibility to temptation) in my inner self.                                          Psalm 138:3 AMPC

Lord, what do You want to talk about?

You, I want you.Lord, You Answered Me

Sir? What about me?

One day at a time, one moment at a time, focus on My Presence for I am with you leading and guiding  you each step of the way.

As I look back on my life Lord, I’ve made so many wrong choices and so many mistakes. I’ve messed up so much, and lost so many opportunities with my negative thinking. You’ve opened doors for me. Then I shut them with my stinking thinking.

But Child, come to Me now. Humble yourself before Me. Seek My will. Ask and you’ll receive My direction for all that concerns you. I’ll lead you if you’ll listen. Child, I’m here for you. Just come to Me in humble adoration for I am your source. I am your all. If you listen, I will lead. You Answered Me

To begin with Lord, open my ears so I can hear Your voice as You speak to my heart. Then help me to listen. At times I’ve been so messed up. So Lord, I need You.

Child, I’m here for you and I love you. All you see now are your failures. but I’m an expert at turning failures inside out. Then I create success and victory out of those failures. So rejoice if you consider your life a failure, for now I have something to work with- you!

Watch and See What I Do


Watch and See

Now watch and see what I will do.

Lord, I admit I’m confused. Up, down, up, down, and up, down again. How can I break this cycle?

Child, you’re not. I AM.

But Lord, how? Please forgive me for I have an ugly, doubtful heart.

I repeat, “Watch and see what I will do.”

Lord, I’m so messed up. It seems the world has gone crazy. First of all everything on the news is depressing with the constant confusion, conflict, accusations, and tragedy. So many people are suffering. Continue reading Watch and See What I Do

“Break These Self-Imposed Chains”

Lord, would You break these self-imposed chains? You delivered me before. But now I’m entangled again in food addiction. I want my victory back. So would You deliver me again, Lord?


Lord, would You break these chains. I’m trying to eat correctly as before when I lost 90 pounds. But now I’m older (66) and my body refuses to let go of excess weight. It’s up a few pounds, down a few pounds, up and down, and so on.

So I get discouraged. Then I eat whatever. Immediately my body swells up with added weight gain. Lord, would You grant me another chance and break these self-imposed chains of food addiction?


Lord, break these self-imposed chains.

You delivered me  of 90 pounds before (at age 61). It seemed so easy then. I ate three meals a day, half-portions, and no snacks. Back then my weight dropped off. Lord, is it possible You could give me another chance and break these self-imposed chains again? What can I do?

Child, first of all, I love you as you are. But since you’re not happy with yourself, I’m going to help you again. Although there will be differences this time because. . . as you said, your body is older (approaching 67). 

He will break these self-imposed chains

To begin with, you need more water. I’ve talked with you about this before. And you need to start moving more. Do some bodily movements, exercise, each day. Try 30 minutes daily. It doesn’t matter what activity you choose as long as it’s movement. The older you get the more your body needs movement just to keep those joints free. 

So Lord, are You telling me to eat the same way when I lost those 90 pounds?

Yes. Just add more water and some exercise this time.

Child, to you exercise is a bad word. So from now on, call it body movement. Think of it as a graceful dance.

Lord, do You want me to start dancing to praise music?

The choice of body movement is up to you. But it’s important at your age to keep it moving to keep your joints free. It doesn’t matter what you choose, but it’s important to “move it, move it, move it.”

Those are your goals. Eat according to My past instructions, add more water, and increase your body movement.

Water is important because it lubricates your joints and keeps them fluid. It’s also good for your skin. It might even puff out of those wrinkles you stress over. (I sense He’s smiling at me.)

Hydration is good for your body. The older you get the more the water in your body dries up. So add more to keep all things moving along. You know what I’m talking about? (He’s smiling again.)

Know this Child- I love you. Now go forth in your victory. You know . . . the one I have already planned for you. (More smiling.) I’m going to do it again.

Break these self-impossed chains, please?
