New Victory

Lord, I need a new victory.  Finally I’m losing weight again, but it’s through using an App on my cell phone, My Fitness Pal-  https://www.myfitnesspal.com/ .

Am I taking credit from You? By using this App to count my calories, how can I say it was You? (This was hand written over a week ago.) Continue reading New Victory

Make Me Full

Lord, make me full of Your Holy Spirit? I want to be full of You this 2020. Show me how I can get full of You.

Make Me Full

Above All Else, The Way to Find Victory

 

To begin with, one must believe I died just for them, for their personal sins. And that I died so they may live. They must also believe after I spent 3 days in the tomb of death, that I rose again to eternal life. Then they must repent, and ask forgiveness for their sins.  (When you ask, I promise to forgive.) Finally, one must turn away from their sins and surrender their hearts and their lives to Me. Make Me Full

Some people forget this part. They continue on with their sinful life choices, choosing to live for their own selfish pleasures instead of seeking My will for their life.

Some people have the misconception that they can say a few prayerful words, shake a preacher’s hand,  and all is well. They believe the words of that prayer saves them. Not so. 

It’s a total heart and life surrender. It is My Presence within their heart. True repentance is a complete turning away from sins. It’s a total life change.

Prayerful words do not save you. But a real relationship with Me does. One must surrender their heart to ME. It’s all about a relationship with Me. 

None Are Excluded From His Love

I love ALL and exclude none from My love. But some exclude Me for they choose their own fleshly self-pleasures over My love. They reject My plan for their life and My love for them. They reject Me. Their life choices and rejection of My love for them grieves My heart for I know what they could have- eternal life and complete peace, My peace.

I long for My children to accept My love. But I will never force My love on anyone. Although I am the eternal, omnipotent God, I allow My children free will to choose whether to accept My love for them or not.

Those who choose My love will live forever in My love. Those who reject My love will forever be in rejection. I call to them, but they close their ears to My voice.

They chose eternal damnation. They determined the consequences of their life choices. 

But now I reach out to offer My love to you. What do you choose?

Within your love, Lord, I choose You. I want Your love and I want Your will in my life. So make me full of Your Presence, and Your Holy Spirit.

Get Full

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say  “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in the present age. Titus 2:11-12 NIV

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not of works, so that no one can boast.Ephesians 2:8 NIV

 

Fat People With Jesus?

Lord, were there fat people when You walked the Earth?

(Note: I can ask this because I have been obese most of my adult life. And I’m 30 pounds overweight now. So isn’t it nice that we can talk to our Lord Jesus about anything and He doesn’t condemn us for asking silly questions.)

Soon I wont be one of the fat people.
Soon I won’t be one of the fat people- only 30 pounds to go.
I'm one of the fat people
What I used to look like at 241 pounds

Scales Went Down. Wow!

Last Friday, the scales went down. Wow! It’s a miracle! During two days I ate three meals with chicken & dumplings, green bean casserole, and squash casserole. And I actually lost weight. Wow! That’s not what I expected! But if I can, then you can too.

On Wednesday and Thursday of last week, I had two different groups of ladies to come eat a meal with me. Yes, that’s what I served them. So much for low-calorie food. I was going for large volume with lower cost to serve 16 ladies. Even though I ate small portions, I never expected to lose weight. Wow!

Scales went down
This looks gross. I know. That way you won’t be tempted to want some. Good.

Child, I told you that if you seek My will and follow My advice, then you’d lose weight.

Wow! Lord, it’s amazing! Last week after having chicken and dumplings for three different meals, I actually lost weight. I can’t believe it.

Child, you sought My advice. Then you listened to My instructions for your portion size. Child, why do you doubt Me? For I know exactly what I’m doing. After all, I’m The Creator.

I created food, although you enjoy mixing up my natural ingredients with other stuff. I also created you body and I know not only what you should eat and not eat, but I also know how much you should eat.

So even if it’s not considered a “diet” food, (chicken & dumplings) if you follow My advice concerning portions size, you will still benefit with weight loss. The key to your success is to seek My will first, then listen to My guidance, trust Me to know what is best and then follow how I lead you. 

Remember that fruit and vegetable diet you tried a few years ago. You ate natural foods, but still gained weight. You gained 5 lbs. in a week. Volume eating of oranges was not good for your body even though it is a natural fruit. 

At that time, you weren’t seeking My advice. Instead you were trying every man-created diet of the month. 

Child, it’s better that  you seek My advice and follow My instructions for I know what is best for your body.

Okay Lord, but now I have two pots of chicken and dumplings left. What do I do with them?

Note: I gave them away. But I’m still amazed that the scales went down 2lbs. Wow!

FEED ON THIS

     Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on Him to guide you, and He wil lead you in every decison you make. Become intimate with Him in whatever you do, and He will lead you wherever you go. Don’t think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore Him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that’s wrong. Proverbs 3:5-7 TPT

The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace. Psalm 29:11 NKJV

 

 

Sin During Communion

Sin during communion. Yes, that’s right. Sin can sneak itself anywhere even in church observing “The Lord’s Supper.” Lord forgive me. This is a true story. Continue reading Sin During Communion

Not Misplaced Blessings

Not Misplaced Blessings
See the leaf shaped placemats on my table.

Those missed placemats were not misplaced blessings. Instead they were blessings of victory. Let me share another conversation with My Lord. Then you’ll know how.

My Conversation With My Lord- Part Two

Lord, . . . do You mind if we talk about those placemats again? You obviously sent me there to that Thrift store and I held them in my hand. Yes, they were all bundled up with rubber bands, but I held them in my hands. So why didn’t I open them?

I’m looking at Romans 8:28. How’s this working out for my good? Was it punishment for overeating to much Cole-slaw or that one extra piece of catfish? Wait, . . . it was that one bite of Hubby’s pie?

Lord, I admit I took that bite without thinking. So are the missed placemats my punishment? What do You want me to learn from this?

Disobedience always costs. If not in punishment, then it costs in missed blessings. Was that it?

At this moment I don’t care about those placemats, I just want this feeling of intense regret to go away.

Not Misplaced Blessings

To begin with, disobedience will cause one to miss out on My blessings. But that was not this case. Now, let’s consider together the results of this supposed missed blessing.

First of all, you’ve learned to focus on My Presence. Second, now you know to look for and expect blessings. Now let’s examine what happened yesterday in your kitchen.

Uh. . . the granddaughters and I cooked some desserts for upcoming thanksgiving Day.

Yes, and how many desserts did you taste?

Uh . . . not one bite.

I see. As you looked at the placemats on your table, you remembered the pain. Didn’t you?

Yes Sir.

Now consider this. Those placemats are not missed blessings. Instead they are blessings of power and victory. They are visable reminders of your vow of 40 Days of Victory for you.

Yesterday you had victory while cooking all those desserts. Those placemats are helping provide you strength throughout your Thanksgiving family feast to resist all the temptations coming forth. 

So now you can appreciate these placemats are indeed not misplaced blessings, but rather powerful strong blessings of victory. I sent them as gifts of power and strength to you, My child. 

Thank you Lord, and please forgive all my doubts and whining. Help me to please You in all I do, say, and think. I give my life to You, my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Blessings of Victory

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them. Romans 8:28 NLT

My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to Your decrees. Your instructions are more valuable to me than millions in gold and silver.      Psalm 119:71-72 NLT

But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Corinthians 15:57

Misplaced Blessings, Placemats

Misplaced Blessings
See the leaf shaped placemats on my table.

Did you know you could have misplaced blessings? This story of misplaced blessings involved Thanksgiving/Fall leaf shaped placemats. And yes, it’s a true story.

When I realized my blessing was lost, I went straight to God whining about it. What follows is my conversation with the Lord. Since I’m such a sassy child of God please pray for me. But do not follow my example Continue reading Misplaced Blessings, Placemats

Child, I’ll break this cycle for you.

But Lord, how? What can I do? Continue reading Break This Cycle
