Loved ones that have crossed over.

 

Words Comfort Death Loved One | Comfort To Those Who Have with Bible Quotes About Losing A Loved One

 

Knowing the loss of loved ones from since I was a child growing up is not what we expect at any time. From my beloved Grandmother, Aunt, and even kids I played with have died that lived in the house next door to mine. One day we were playing one day and then there was a fire that captured them and took their life the next.

We all have known grief and sorrow at some point, even with those of us who have pets. They gave you unconditional love and joy while they where with you. And you can miss them and feel loss too, for you loved them just as much. And these pets will love you more than some people. Our pets are apart of our family.

The only way how to get comfort is in the LORD. I can not explain how many times I have had to talk to GOD and JESUS to pull me through all of the things I have gone through with the loss of loved ones. It is an awful experience to be in.  You really do feel a loss.

You think about those who were not saved, (to your understanding) if they made it into heaven. You saw no evidence of being saved while they were alive and around you. I tell you this is not something you need to worry about now for they are in the hands of the LORD. No matter at what level of faith you have assumed them to be in. Let GOD be in charge of that.

I can not include our pets, ( have lost a good dog named Cody 5 years ago and still miss him) for I can not find anything in the Bible where it says they will be there with us.

There are people who will get saved on their death-bed. They are able to talk to the LORD and find the peace that they need right then and there. Babies and children are so innocent that they maybe in heaven with the FATHER GOD right now if we read the scripture and understand it correctly.

Matthew 18:10

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Here is more verses about children going to heaven and finding some peace with it. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Babies-Going-To-Heaven/

You will always miss your loved ones, no matter how many years have gone by. Love does not die. We may not like the fact that they are gone, but they are in a better place and we don’t have the right to be selfish to keep them from going to heaven where they have peace.

On judgment day we will know exactly what true peace and joy is when we all get there that love from the LORD. Those of us that are left behind and are still living, should aim our best to be with the LORD when it is our time. For those that have gone before us and are saved WILL be there and we will see them again. Waiting for us to come home.

There are people who did not walk the path of faith and was very ill and about to die that got saved through accepting JESUS as their savior minutes before going home. Living a confused, mislead secular life. Not truly happy in life until they came to JESUS. You can read about some here at this site below.

Washed RED.com Testimonies.

On this site there are many people who have crossed over into the lane of righteousness! It is not an easy thing to do when you were lied to by the devil that you are too bad to change, or that you will never be forgiven of your sins. But then, you see this is a lie because our dear LORD JESUS came to save us ALL who believe in Him. Click on to this link to see who has claimed JESUS as their savior!

http://www.washedred.com/content/?contentID=56

All this is to say, don’t give up the thought that the people you loved that have died is NOT saved. You can not be for certain as to what relationship loved one had with JESUS. You really don’t know for sure. Live your life to be with the LORD faithfully and be prepared for all of the blessings that GOD will give to you for your obedience to HIS laws.

I do not know if our pets will be included in heaven or not. We will have to wait for when we get there. I do not see anywhere in scripture to my understanding that they will be sharing paradise with us. We will not be in the flesh as we are right now, and the flesh wants one thing when the soul need another road such as heaven. I found some information on our pets going to heaven here at this site.

Bible info.com “Do dogs go to heaven?”

The site brings up some good points. Always have your Bible with you to refer to anything you read. Including what you read on my posts as well. We all need to see the scripture for ourselves to gain understanding and right with our GOD.

http://www.bibleinfo.com/en/questions/do-animals-go-heaven

When you think about all of the nonsense of this world, find comfort in GODS love that HE expresses so lovingly in the Bible. GOD does not lie. HE is comforting in all of HS truths, laws and ways. We need HIM to keep afloat and stead fast to HIS gates of heaven. We are only here on this earth for a short time. We will be with our loved ones when it is our time as when GOD says so.

HEAVEN 2018

Picture from quotes.com

James 4:14

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

Tell your family and friends everyday, every time you are with them that you love them. Say good night to those whom you work with to leave on a good note until you meet up with them the next day. For you do not know when the LORD will call you home or them.

You want the LORD JESUS to say to you when you are standing at heavens gate. “Job well done my true and faithful servant! Come on in!”

 

May there be a blessing to the reader of this post and all of the other posts in this blog. And for those who share it to encourage others and give them some peace in their loss.

 

Peace!

Psalms 115:1

Psalms 115 verse 1 2018

You know what? When we praise our one and only true living God for all that He does for us it will may take all day. Our list will be long even in times of trouble when you are able to pull yourself through it. Seriously!

See when you keep your mind on the LORD in the midst of a storm even, you are can still give HIM the praise. You will see what you went through and know it is because GOD is with you, you were able to sail through it.

Praise GOD to be able to get up and see another day, have a roof over your head, food to eat when you are hungry, be able to help those when they can not, praise GOD to others for the blessings He did give to you, be able to talk with your voice for many have no voice at all, be able to see for many can not see at all. I can go on and on about praising GOD and being thankful that He sent His beloved son here on this earth to save us from all of the sins we have done our whole lives long.

There are many people out there with health/money/family issues you can see and can not see. No one person is perfect. Not one. Or ever will be. If you have ever been injured or was born with an issue of some type of health problem, just know none of us can say we are perfect. Some people are stronger in their mind more so than others and will smile every time you see them. Like those who have downs syndrome. I personally have never met one who was ever mean to me. Ever. It’s like they are a special blessing when I see one who will give me a smile when I need it or a hug. They are really cool people. Beautiful inside and out.

Being crippled did not stop Mephibosheth from having servants and fathering 2 sons. He sat at King David’s table and ate with him as one of the Kings sons. Mephibosheth was crippled from injury at age 5 according to the Bible.  He had what some may call a disability. That did not stop him from being a man of faith.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Samuel+9%3A6-13&version=KJV

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mephibosheth

This is a learning experience with those who can keep a smile as they do. You may see they them as having a struggle. You may think they are not happy, but they have the same kinds of issues we do. Getting up going to work, wanting to get married, paying taxes, doctors appointments, keeping food on the table and paying bills.

I am saying all of this as to up lift each of us. We need to stay away as much as we can from negative people and thoughts. It is not easy because of the flesh and may slip for trying. But once we get in to habit of finding a peaceful place to be, even at work or school where you can have your solitude away from worldly non sense….you are doing good. Even if you need to spend time alone, so you can have clean thoughts and focus on the LORD and pray or just use your time to listen to Gospel music or Christian music that will give you a soothing peace. You need to feed your soul with good thoughts. Be around like-minded people for they want the same things you do. They mission is to be right with GOD and have accepted JESUS as their savior to get into heaven where all perfect love and peace is.

Ahhh!  To think about what JESUS has prepared for us in heaven is so wonderful. No more hate, no more pain, no more disabilities, no more non-sense of any kind and the freedom to love and praise GOD and His son JESUS all day long.

And another thing, when you are focusing your thoughts on scripture that alone can give you the peace you need. The men and women of the Bible and the situations that they had to go through are the same things we go through right now today. The only difference is , is that they were living that then and we are living it now with the technology we have today.

 

Deuteronomy 28 verse 1 2018

Praise GOD at all times. Here is some more scripture to read on this link for you. It is a link for “King James Bible online”

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Praising-God/

If we sit down and write down all of the things we are blessed to have right now and what GOD has done, I will say you will be writing for some time. Let us all give thanks to our Holy loving perfect FATHER GOD and for His beloved son JESUS every single day! GOD is so cool! And His son is like His Father too!

Psalm 150 King James Version (KJV)

150 Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

King James Version 
May all who read this and my other posts of praise be blessed and for those who share it as well. May they all give you the encouragement you need to make it through the day! Be safe and be blessed!

Psalm 23:5 Dinner and fellowship.

 

Church_Supper_Praying

Good morning everyone!

It is starting to get warmer now in my area and we are planning what to sow in the garden, I do love to garden. Growing plants, flowers and food bearing plants is very relaxing. GOD has blessed the earth with food, and we need to learn how to prepare it.

1 Corinthians 10:31

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” 

Fellowshipping with other people of faith is good bonding. Other members of the faith will encourage you as you will encourage them. We are all apart of the same team and tribe of JESUS. So we need to show that love of Christ in all we do.

Matthew 5:44 King James Version (KJV)

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

King James Version (KJV)
Yes it is easy to just avoid those who give you a hard time, as it is written in Matthew 5:44 but it is better to forgive than to hold on to a grudge forever.
We do forgive so we can be forgiven. And sometimes it feels as hard as trying to get a camel through the eye of the needle. But we do it. Over and over again too.
Sharing a good meal with your tribe is a good thing, an extension of your family. Bring something different to share with them for a meal and some scripture to share too.
Have some prayer for the soul and food for the body.

 

So here is something different I want to share with you. I have been trying my hand at some pickled eggs. I  just loved how this batch did turn out. They tasted like the very ones I had as a child. This would be great with a garden salad to bring to the table.

1 Corinthians 11:33-34 King James Version (KJV)

33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.

Looking for the ingredients that i remembered tasting in the eggs , i looked for a recipe that had those in it. I wanted a dill taste like what i had tasted in the very first egg i had eaten.

The eggs were in a jewish deli where they had the best pastrami I could even imagine. I mean I thought this was the best pork i have had out side of home. But then Mom said it was beef and I was totally shocked. So to ease the shock I took another bite.

But this is where the eggs come in. I saw these eggs on the store counter in the largest glass jar I have ever seen. Must have been about 30 or so eggs in it! All packed in the delicious juice.

 

And this picture is what I made. They were good with a salad too. I do not know if by going by this recipe if it Keto friendly or not.

This is a picture of the Ball jar I used. It took 10 eggs. What didn’t fit I made some egg salad.

Not my recipe, I got this from allrecipes.com

Give a Praise Party for GOD!

Taco-Dinner-2

As the warmer weather approaches I will hear about the parties some people are planning or have gone to. If you are on the check out line in a grocery store, these things are a common conversation with some and their peers. It’s like you are trapped into hearing this sort of thing from just wanting to get some milk and eggs for your family.

I was wondering how many people would come to a party where we all would just want to praise GOD for all of the blessings that HE has given them. Or to even have some prayer time to give a bond to all who are around you at this party in honor of our heavenly FATHER GOD.

We do have out birthday parties, wedding parties, baby shower parties, graduation parties, welcome home parties and so on. But have we just had parties to gather for fellowship, prayer and bonding with your family and friends to praise GOD?

I want to do this. I want to have my family and friends around where we can all gather around , praise GOD, give each other encouragement, hug or hold hands with the love of JESUS in our hearts. Just having an excellent time sharing the love of JESUS.

I would like to invite those who need to learn more about the LORD GOD who need some answers and encouragement. All while serving up delicious pot luck dinners , eating the good home cooked meals. Food, talk, smiles and praising GOD. You can have even more fun at a praise party than at a party where you will see people drinking and loosing control.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

Here are some links to my favorite site for Bible verses. It is so cool because you can get this on your phone when you do not have your hard copy Bible with you!

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Praise-And-Worship/

Psalms
Chapter 150

 

1Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

2Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

3Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

5Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

6Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.

 

For you will see that what they do there at that theme typed party, GOD is not in it. And they do not want HIM there. It could be an office party where the boss wanted everyone to be there, and you comply.  If you were ever invited to a party where there are those who lose control like that, politely and quietly leave. If you are new to the office, it is best to just show up and not stay. It is not for you if you choose to follow the LORD.

The best parties to have, is when there is love there. As having your loving family and friends there where there is good food, good clean games, good talk and laughter! Just enjoying each others company. But what if you know of a person who lives alone, or is in need of a good church to attend? We can invite them to our praise party.

There are many elderly who live alone and not by choice, who maybe lonely and just need to get out. Maybe they can not get out because of where they live and no one is able to help them to travel. Maybe there is a family that does not have much, or the spouse is ill in the hospital and they need to be around people to give them encouragement.

We all need JESUS, and we need JESUS at all times.

See, when you are in a party mood, it is a happy mood. And you can have some Bible reading before the meal. I say before so you will have people stay longer. And when the desert comes out it is the finishing touch. You can give out little Bible tracts that pertain to the main theme of this party. Giving praise to GOD. Here are some links to where you can print some out and hand them out during your Bible readings.

Psalms Chapter 117

1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD [endureth] for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

4.   FREE CARTOON TRACT.COM

http://www.freecartoontract.com/are-you-a-good-person-english/GoodPerson-English-3-751x1024

This site above “free cartoon tract.com” is interesting as how they made more like a cartoon. Still you get the point with scripture.

 

With these sites and with any site you will need to read the tracts with your Bible right next to it BEFORE you give them to people. Just because it says it is a Bible tract with scripture in it does not mean it is right. Many are may have false teachings.

Jack Chick.com is another site for Bible tracts, but his way of spreading the word is with a scare theme to it and many people do not like that. And if they get turned off with being scared and not showing a loving heart if JESUS in it they will not be interested and you can lose them. You may not be able to convince them to turn to GOD, accept JESUS as savior and be saved.

So research the best ones on these sites that show the  love of JESUS in it and not to scare people. We are ALL sinners, not one of us is sin free.

Praising GOD for all of the blessing HE has given us. There maybe some people who do not see the blessings they have, until we show them. Praising GOD is one blessing, being able to enjoy good company, having a roof over your head, food in your tummy, feeling loved by GOD. And for a “Babe in the LORD” as how my husband would say coming to a Praise Party will be food for the soul.

worship dinner 2018

I get my inner faith battery charged when there are meetings and gatherings where we all can talk about the LORD and encourage each other by praising GOD! We all need this. No matter what level of faith you have, because there is power and strength in all of us that comes from the FATHER GOD of all heaven and earth and HIS beloved son JESUS!!!

So, whose bringing the dessert? (smile)

Have fun at your praise party! Bring tracts that tell about the love of JESUS and why we need HIM. Put a number of someone besides yourself if they need to talk to someone later or a good church to attend if they do not have one.

Be blessed and never stressed. May a blessing come to all who read this blog and the others, and for sharing and passing it along to others to read too.

Peace! 🙂

GODS blessings or the devils rewards?

opulent mansion 2018

I know many people who do say they would like to live higher up on the income scale to live fancier. Or to play the lottery so they can win the mega millions so they can buy more things. I can truly understand that if you are struggling to make ends meet and you are weary of that struggle. Wanting to catch up on your bills so you can breathe would be a relief.

And when we see many of the celebrities, sports figures. politicians and actors making the big bucks we want to as well. But you do not know exactly how these people have earned the money they have to live so opulently. They maybe living a bold lie as to have the public thinking it is all legit.

It may not be what you think. And if they are not praising GOD and living right by GOD…..you know it is not what you expect if the Bible is very clear as to how GOD wants us to live. Those that are open about the  lifestyles they live that are breaking the moral codes that GOD has set forth in the Bible, then this is not blessed. Why would GOD bless us for doing evil when in the Bible HE gave us lifes blessed instructions?

Not to say that those that are in the Church can do no wrong, it would not be fair. For we all are in the flesh and need JESUS to save us from our sins. But you will find evil and temptation where ever there are people, none of us are perfect. None of us are free from sin.

Living a lifestyle where you don’t think about GOD or have forgotten HIM because you can buy what you want and need anytime you feel the need, this may be the only heaven you will see.

Many succesful celebrities are for what GOD is against, like the sexual freedoms, vanity, lying, lifestyles, and other immoral things. The problem is that the public, starting with the younger children see this. And some of the immoral teachings are tought in school. Putting this nonsense upon our children to make them sway into thinking as how the teacher or school system wants our children to think. Once the removal of prayer had school happened I remember my parents saying the moral decay is evident. This led to a new outlook on life with kids becasue of being introduced to no moral leaders in school. No one to lead them into the right direction there in the schoool. If they see an adult do wrong and not get into any trouble from it then they will follow behind this “nice and likable” teacher. These teachers reward kids who listen to them for this is the way of satans people.

Forget if you teach about the ways LORD to follow JESUS if you do not do so yourself. If you are not strong in the word and love GOD will all of your heart, who will teach your child? And this is giving your child to be lied to by the devil as not to listen to you. Not to listen to the word of GOD. And not to listen to GOD period.

See, it takes a lot of money to be influential and to lead our children into destruction. The type of music and the type of images that are thrown at us all from the lost souls are not with GOD in mind first. They are sexual stimulations that will have people pulled in and addicted to this to where it will destroy alot of relationships our children will get into. Even if it is just a simple friendship to wanting to find a god person to marry. May not happen if they are not living the lifestyle of choice and not the one that GOD will BLESS!

Many very popular female are known for sensual gestures and whatever on stage. And kids are taken there some with parents to see the performers. These beautiful women have excellent voices could sing their hearts out. They do make top money , have hits. But they are seductive. Maybe they know what they are doing, maybe not. These are just some of the people out there doing the very same thing. I wonder what it would be like if they sang gospel songs?

Isaiah 57:3-4 King James Version (KJV)

But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.

I would say they may not be blessed….but rewarded by the devil for doing the things they do out in public.

I would not feel comfortable living in a house so large that I would need to use my 20 speed bike to peddle from one end to another. People do make their own choices but I could not do it, I would want to scale down. I would like my whole family living in the same house!

Philippians 4:19 New International Version (NIV)

19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

https://www.crosswalk.com/blogs/debbie-mcdaniel/a-prayer-for-gods-favor-21-verses-of-his-blessing-and-sovereignty.html

 

The blessings that GOD will give to you will go beyond your understanding. You will be in awe. They will be no one that can touch it and take it from you. It came from GOD and it is all for you.

Stay in prayer, listen to waht GOD is telling you. Becasue when you do pray HE hears you. GOD does not want us to go and dwell in hell forever. He loves us. Never let something that is too good to be true, that has no signs of GOD in it fool you. You will know it is from GOD, because HIS blessings come from HIS pure love.

 

quote-hell-is-the-highest-reward-that-the-devil-can-offer-you-for-being-a-servant-of-his-billy-sunday-180801

Let GOD bless you with all of the things you will need and want in your life to stay on the path of righteousness. Don’t be impressed at the wealth you see others have or the advances they get, or the people they know.

You know GOD. You know JESUS. Depend on them only and you will have an abundant loving life with them in it guiding and protecting you and all of your loved ones at all times!

Be blessed and never stressed! May there be  blessing for the reading and the sharing of the word of GOD.

Peace!
