All Is Well, Trust Me

Trust Me.

Child, all is well. Trust Me for I have it all in My hands.

But Lord, what about those being persecuted in other countries? Do You see those children who are abused or killed throughout the world? Starvation, murder, so many suffering from disease, or wars, what about all that?

Trust Me, Child
Trust Me, Child

Child, all of that will end soon, and very soon. I know about it all, and yes I cry. My tears are the only tears in heaven. “Jesus wept.” (John 11:35) I do weep, I do cry. My Spirit is grieved at much of what I see.

Trust Me

But then I see – -revival, people’s hearts seeking My love. I see kindness and people giving to one another. People are showing forth My love to each other and that makes Me smile. I see the love in a mother’s or father’s eye as they look at their newborn child and I smile. I see the aged and weary couple holding hands. As they smile at on another, I smile on them.

Yes, there’s much suffering in this world, but there’s just as much love in the world, even more so. It’s because I spread My love from one to another. 

When you look and behold My creation in nature, you’ll see how I create beauty out of rocks. Yes, I can take all the rocks and hard places of life, both yours and those of others, and turn them into great reflections of My beauty.Trust Me

Thank you Lord for hope. If I didn’t have You, I’d have no hope.

Child, I am your hope, I am your love, and I am your future. Remember, keep your eyes on Me, not what you see. 

Lord, help me to have the right attitude within my heart.

Child, seek Me, seek My Presence. Then you will have true peace. You can say, “It is well with my soul.” Seeking the peace of MY Presence should be your priority. As you yield your heart, your mind, and your soul to Me, I’ll fill you with a calm, peaceful spirit versus your frustrations now. 

Rejoice in the little things, for it’s the little things you’re allowing to frustrate you. Let go and trust Me. Trust Me

Yes, rejoice even when your aches and the pains of age are catching up with you. Rejoice in your frustrations for they cause you to cry out to Me. Even though it seems to you things are bad, I will turn all things around and create good out of it. 

That is My specialty, taking the bad and turning it into good. Satan is the one who want to kill, steal, and destroy. I come to bring life, bless, and build up My children into new life. 

My specialty is turning  bad into good. Therefore Satan never wins for I take the bad he caused and I turn it around to make good out of it. So trust Me to work all things out.

Trust Me, My Child

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. Romans 8:28 AMP

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5,6 

So Expect Victory


 You said, “Expect victory.” So thank you Lord, for the peace and relief I feel today.

Child, I am peace. Therefore My Presence brings peace. Knowing I work out all things for My glory and your good brings peace. Overall trusting Me with your worries, your problems, and letting go takes the load off you. This brings you relief.  Continue reading So Expect Victory

Glory to God, Chains are Falling

Lord, I want to bring You glory, not for me, but for You. Not only show me how, but also could You help me so that I could bring You honor and praise. , I want to ask You Also Lord, I want to ask if You would forgive me for returning back to my old ways of overeating consequently damaging the testimony of Your delivering power in my life.

And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer. Your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:48

Child, this verse applies to you as well. Not only am I watching over you, but also I know of your weaknesses. So now move forth toward your victory. No longer hold your head down, but look up instead for your victory is coming. In fact I’m giving you victory. Look up and be excited about life for it’s a wonderful gift I’ve given to you. Instead of extra food, I want you filled with excitement, be filled with optimism, and be filled with My Spirit. Rejoice My Child for victory is yours.

 Thank you Lord for Your mercy. I can hear those chains of food bondage falling off now.

 PERSONAL DISCLOSURE CONCERNING ADVERTISEMENTS:

Not My Car- But I like it. Don’t You?

I’ve decided to add advertisements to this blog. To begin with, if I published through a free site others would place their own advertisements here. Then we’d be subject to their choices even if we didn’t agree with their choices. So why should I allow others to advertise on this blog?

If I choose to monetize, then I get to choose the advertisements. Therefore I can choose advertisements I approve of and willing to purchase myself. If it doesn’t meet my standards, then you won’t see the advertisement.

A while back I use a free site for this blog and they advertised how Twinkies could help you through your rough times. See how letting others choose their advertisements won’t work for me. I’ll never advertise products to feed your or my food addiction.

I struggled with using advertisements. But after reading “The  Parable of the Talents” in Matthew 25:14-30, I concluded that advertisements could help to support blog expenses. Please don’t feel obligated in any way to order from any of these advertisements unless you want to.

The first advertisement:

http://

Yes, this  is the book I wrote with God’s help. To order, just click on the book button and you’ll be redirected to Amazon.com. Then I’ll receive a small commission from them for my own book. Why not?

If you decide to order from any other advertisements posted on this blog, I’ll receive a small commission from that company. But rest assured,  I’ll never use advertisements I don’t approve, or be willing to order myself. As a matter of fact, I plan on ordering this Amazon Prime after publishing this post so I can make commission from my own order. How’s that for a plan.

Do You See The Lights? It’s A Dream.

Lana_1_1Have you ever seen the heavenly “lights” of God, either the brightness of angels or even the Light of God? I haven’t, but I’m looking for them. This all began with a dream I had the other night about “The Lights”. After you read this, let me know what you think about my dream.

To begin with, Lana was in my dream. She was my bestest (Is that a word?) BFF, my most beloved friend. Sept.1, 2014 was the day of she entered Heaven. I celebrate her victory.

For six years I visited her once a week unless I went out of town or was sick.  We enjoyed praying and studying the Bible together.  She’d share her secrets with me  and I vice versa. She’d tell me how God spoke to her heart and I’d write these thoughts down for her. She encouraged me to listen for God’s voice and to write what He spoke to me too. My time spent with her is one of the greatest treasures of my life memories. She’s with God now, talking with Him face to face. Oh, and she’s probably dancing for Him too.

Lana had been bedridden with M.S. for over 18 years and was completely paraplegic. She could only move her head, but Lana was the most beautiful person I have ever known. Her smile would light up the entire room. I’ll always believed she had a straight connection to God Himself. Now she’s living with Him in that “good” neighborhood. She once shared a dream with me about being in Heaven. She said, “I lived in that “good” neighborhood too. Jesus’ house was just over the hill. ” At that time I laughed at her because in Heaven everyone lives in a good neighborhood. I’m smiling as I write this.

Lana’s mother and mine were best friends throughout our childhoods, but somehow we never connected until adulthood, by then she was bedridden. Lana  made such an impression on my life. I want to be just like her, except for the paraplegic part. I want to have her connection with God,  her outgoing personality, her love for God’s Word, and her genuine interest and concern for others. Lana might have been contained in her bedroom, but her prayers impacted the world.

She spent her time either watching  preachers on television since she was homebound, shopping QVC for the same reason (Others made the phone calls for her), or listening to the Bible by audio. She could quote you different scriptures too. But most of all she spent her time praying for others. She prayed for everyone she knew and others she didn’t know. She prayed for world leaders, people-groups within different countries and over current events in the news. When God allowed her to enter Heaven, the world lost one of its greatest prayer warriors and I lost my best friend. He took her home on September 1, 2014 and I’ve missed her ever since.

This was my dream:

Life was busy. We’re all were running to and fro, back and forth to many different activities, all except Lana. Her first focus was to always look for the Light. Wherever she was the Light would come, shine over her and talk with her. She was with the Light so much we could see the twinkles of many lights surrounding her. Every time she talked with the Light she was surrounded by many twinkling lights and she glowed as she reflected this Light.

She spent so much in the presence of the Light with those twinkling lights surrounding her that we started watching. When we would see the twinkling lights come forth, then we knew she was coming to talk with Light. As we watched from a distance she talked with the Light and glowed in His love.

Then one day Lana left to be with Him. She was gone. I thought to myself, “I miss her, but I’m going to miss seeing the Light too, now that’s she gone.” I wondered if we’d ever see the lights again since she was gone now.

As I looked around, it’s dark and the sky is foreboding. A powerful wind is blowing and leaves are swirling about. Storm clouds are brewing.

Then Yahweh speaks to my heart, “Child, look for the Light. The Light will come to you if only you will look for it. Look for the Light, My child.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the Light of life.” John 8:12

Arise, shine; for your Light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1  (This was one of Lana’s favorite verses.)

For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  2 Corinthians 4:6

The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. Revelations 21:23

 

 

Lord, Would You Give Me A Word For This Year Of 2016?

The following word was written last January 2016 and never published. It continues as an appropriate word for this new year of 2017. Think I’ll print it and keep it in my Bible.

Last year (2016) I made a lot of bad decisions, lost my focus, and listened to others with their plans for my success. Notice the line written, “If you listen to others, all will be vanity.”  Consequently most of my decisions ended up as vanity. These wrong decisions resulted in unnecessary expenses on my charge card as I tried to buy my way to success which in turn caused an unfair burden on Hubby. I greatly regret this and now my charge card is overweight.

Most importantly, I missed God’s mark for 2016. This is my greatest regret of 2016, missing God’s perfect plan. It seems I had His permissive will, but that’s not the same as His perfect will. This year, 2017, I’m seeking His perfect will. How about you? What are you seeking?

In conclusion I wished I had kept my eyes on Jesus,  who knows what might have been. Check out the word for 2017. More lessons to learn. . . .
