Good morning all! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day!
As we who love the LORD GOD and have accepted GOD’s son as our saviour of our very souls….we all need to give our “brothers and sisters in the LORD encouragement at all times. For we all need a kind word from those who have GOD in their heart! This is why I am doing this post today. To encourage those of us who love the LORD.
There are many people who will go out of their way to do evil to those of us who love GOD and HIS son JESUS just because of the hate that they have in their heart. Many don’t know what they are doing and many do. And they will do this evil without caing of the consequences.
People will envy another so that each time they lay eyes on the victim, they feel the need to get even. As though the person they envy has hurt them. The Bible is very clear about this sort of thing called envy.
“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”
When a person is jealous of another persons life they are not living their own life that GOD gave them. They persistently watching those who they feel are doing better than they are. Causing all kinds of trouble for themselves and the person to whom they are envious of. All because the envious person was not in the right mind and relationship with GOD.
It is not your fault about how they feel about you. They are the ones who will have to answer to GOD for what they do to you.
1 Peter Chapter 2
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
What we who love GOD go through dealing with unsaved people is not an easy task to get through. And we need JESUS to do so. Just like our enemies do,they need JESUS. And as well to accept JESUS in their heart. We all have souls and the flesh is weak and needing to have perfect guidance from our JESUS.
No way can any of us mankind fight off this spiritual battle alone between good and evil. JESUS had to come to earth the save us all. I have heard many people say that they have sinned too bad for GOD to save them. But GOD is very patient, and is giving you a chance to repent from the sins you are in. You are still alive today to read this, so this is another chance to repent and be saved.
Forget about what success you see others have, you don’t know how they got it. It could have been through doing evil things , you don’t know or have to. What GOD has for you is for you. Listen to GOD, and pay attention to your own life for GOD maybe trying to give you a blessing and you may miss it turning your head to see what others are doing with envy.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
King James Version (KJV)
Have a blessed day in the LORD GOD, thank GOD for JESUS . Share this blog with others and give GOD thanks for all that you have.
I remember as a child about the Lions den, and this always stayed with me. Why Daniel was put in there because he stood his ground against being bullied to do something that was not right by GOD. For in today’s time there are some people who act as though they are lions ready to devour those who love the LORD.
I want to encourage everyone who is being intimidated or bullied in any way shape or form by anyone at anytime or place. See,with faith we can do all things through CHRIST JESUS.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
King James Version (KJV)
We just need to be patient and listen to the answers that our GOD is giving us through our praying. We can not wish bad things to happen to these people(the Lions). For if we do then we are not doing GOD’s will by loving your neighbor. When if at all possible with every single cell in your body we need to pray for these lost souls. If it be at work, be polite and do your best to avoid them. At school do this as best as you can, but inform your parents as well, for GOD will work through your parents to have your bully leave you alone.
In today’s world it is against the law to bully anyone at anytime. You maybe led by GOD’S will to go legally and file a report with the proper authorities. You never know who is a child of GOD in this types of jobs regarding law enforcement. So yes, pray at all times for GOD will send you the help you need at the right time. But always stay in prayer so you will know it is GOD leading you and not the flesh. Whatever you do, never try to do it spitefully. Do it with spiritual discernment.
Reading the book of Daniel can be like reading a similar situation you will find that has happened last week or yesterday.
I want to share with you what I listen to while I am at work on my phone with my earbuds on. This site has all 66 books to listen to. These are the same recordings that my beloved Grandmother listened to. You will be able to listen to the Book of Daniel too, But you can go to the site and listen to the book of Daniel there.
Here is the book of Daniel
For those who are bullied , please still depend on GOD to get you through it. I do not like to see anyone bullied. Those lost souls that do bullying will have to answer to GOD as to why they did these hateful things just like the rest of us with the sins we have done as well.
1 John 3:15
“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
King James Version (KJV)
I do ask that you read the word of GOD if you are going through any situations and be encouraged from the most high our beloved FATHER GOD. He can see what you are going through, just go to the FATHER with a pure heart in need of HIM. He will answer you and does see your tears.

I do hope this was helpful for anyone being bullied. Be blessed and stay in prayer. The “Lions” of the world roam about doing their thing to distract you from the LORD with lies and every type of method to confuse you and turn your eyes and mind away from the LORD GOD. Don’t let anyone or thing come between you and the LORD and accepting JESUS as your savior. Let JESUS handle those bullies.
Pass this blog post forward please so others will be blessed too. We never really know what will encourage others when they do need it.

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
King James Version (KJV)
Good day and or night everyone.
I do hope that you all are having a blessed day, for this is the day that the LORD GOD has made for us to enjoy.
In life we all will go through a struggle and need our GOD to get past, and through it. Some of us seek after the LORD JESUS the son of GOD as how sunflowers follow the sun. We follow the son of GOD our JESUS all of our lives as best as we can. For we know we can not make it through this world without our ever loving savior JESUS.
Many of us will just do things our way and wonder how we got into a mess. Blaming others for the choices we make. But right know I am speaking about those who believe there is GOD but do not have a loving relationship with GOD and HIS son JESUS. This is a choice they have made, to believe but not let it go any further than that.
Their minds are clouded with confusion, being mislead into which direction they need to go. Lacking spiritual discernment, which we all do need.
“The fundamental definition for Christian discernment is a decision making process in which an individual makes a discovery that can lead to future action. In the process of Christian spiritual discernment God guides the individual to help them arrive at the best decision. Their minds are clouded with confusion, being mislead into which direction they need to go. Lacking spiritual discernment, which we all do need.” Wikipedia
1 Corinthians 2:14
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
King James Version (KJV)
To have the LORD guiding you through the paths in your life is a must. For HE does know what is a head of you on your journeys every single day/hour/minute/second of your life. We all need to trust HIM to guide us on a safe journey in life so we can always land on our feet. No worries, just going through life day to day to avoid being confused. Or mislead. There are spirits that are not of GOD too, so this is why we NEED to be connected to the HOLY FATHER and HIS son JESUS.
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
King James Version (KJV)
There are those who say they love GOD but will do mean things to people without any reservation that is is wrong to do. They only label themselves as Christians so they can deceive others. Not what GOD has planned any of us all. They are deceivers and hate GOD. Lead you going in a direction you think is right but it is not. Distracting you from GOD. GOD maybe telling you to leave certain people alone and you decide to have it your way. Not understanding as to why you need to take the advice of the FATHER. Until you are the victim of the nonsense they put you through. You have learned a hard lesson on how you should have listened to what you mind told you. It was GOD warning you.
Follow GODS light to lead you out of the darkness.

Stay in prayer and let JESUS be your “flashlight” on high beams to the right road to be on to be saved, safe and sound to our FATHER GOD. The world is a place with no light without our ever loving GOD and HIS son JESUS.
Have a blessed day, be safe and sound, stay in prayer so you can HEAR what our FATHER GOD is saying to you, what our JESUS is saying to you so you wont stubble and fall. Even though JESUS will pick you up if you do.

Complaining and Murmuring : KJV – King James Version – Bible Verse List. “Neither murmur ye, as some of them [ancient Israelites] also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.” “Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.Aug 3, 2015
Good morning everyone, or whatever time it is for you right now!
I have heard a good sermon from my husbands Pastor friend Doug Helton of Calvary Baptist Church in Iowa. It had more than one message in it, but the main message was about how we all at times will complain when we should be giving thanks to our beloved GOD for all things. See the Pastors video below.
It is an easy habit to get into to complain, and a very hard one to get out of. Babies, Children, Teens, and Adults in all stages of life complain. Without a second thought to it. Not realizing we should not be doing it or are doing it.
We are blessed by GOD’s by will of the things HE has given us. As you read this blog, you are blessed. You have the life GOD gave you, healthy enough to be able to read the blog, the ability to read, to see it, and to understand it, to have the equipment that allows you to read this blog along with having the internet service. So that alone is at least 7 blessings right there! (add a smiley face here.)
So let’s continue to count our blessings each day. You will see GOD as been blessing you all the while.
With complaining, we will at times only see the annoying thing(s) 1st and not the true loving blessings that our GOD has given us. Our GOD does not like that from us to have this mindset. It is like when our earthly Dad will cook a good meal and when were hungry. It was a nice plate of veggies, grains and protein with some freshly squeezed juice with ice in it. Then we complain that the ice was too cold or not cold enough in the juice!
We all complain at times, and we complain about other people complaining! When you are around people who complain and you are trying not to, and you hear their complaints it can rub off on you. So then it can have you pick up their bad habits of complaining and not even realize it too. This is something the Bible will mention in these scripture below about us complaining.

Numbers 21:4-6 – And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. (Read More…)
As I had thought about the message, I want to challenge myself as not to complain, or when it is at all possible to walk away from a person politely when they are complaining or point out the good in what they are talking about. Such as if they have an issues like the child did with the meal mentioned above…..I could say “at least you have ice. “The drink would not be cool without any ice at all.”
GOD knows what we need and we need to accept the current blessings so we will get more each day. Enjoy your day, and challenge yourself as to train your thoughts on not to complain but to give thanks to our GOD for all that HE gives us at all times. Stay in prayer as you go through your day to avoid complaining, because it will be very hard/impossible not to have the LORD in it to help you.
Praise and glory be to YOU dear beloved FATHER GOD at all times now and to and through all of eternity long!
May you all have a blessed day, please pass this blog forward with the words of GOD in it to others so they will be blessed as well too. Pass it forward! Stay blessed and know that our GOD loves us all!
22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
28And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
Good Morning everyone!
I do hope that where ever you all maybe on GOD’s earth today that you are in a cool place and are comfortable and safe. It has been hotter than usual here in New York. But right now, it seems to be cool compared to yesterday. I do thank GOD for that.
With all of this heat we are having I do think about when I would head out to the beach and enjoy the ocean water. I would swim in it to cool off or even just to look at it when it was too cold to really swim in it. It was so peaceful for me as a child. Calming i fact, like there was nothing to even think about really and I would fall asleep under my parents watchful eyes.
Enjoying the inner peace!
The only way to have true inner peace is to let go of the issues of the world and just enjoy what the LORD has made.
Church is not the only place that I do find some peace. It is with nature too, the beaches are one of the other places to be for me.
You can have concerns on your mind that you pray over and wait for the LORD GOD to take from you. And GOD will too. But also for me, once I am there looking at the ocean they are washed away!
It is as though the LORD is letting me know that HE “got this”…HE is taking care of my burden and HE will wash it all away! It will be no more to bind me down. I sigh a big sigh of relief knowing that GOD is in control!
Giving me a feeling of inner peace. Joy. And comfort. Knowing that HE has heard my heart calling out to HIM in prayer.
Giving me a feeling of being loved by GOD and HIS son JESUS at all times. Even as I write this to you. Knowing that JESUS is my savior, and has came on earth to sacrifice HIS life on the cross so that I may live, ALL mankind will live who believe and worship HIM!
Our sins are washed away into the sea of forgiveness.
When I think of the ocean or see it, I do think of how our JESUS has washed away our sins through our faith, trust and belief in HIM our savior!
So I do ask you all to remember what JESUS has done for me, you our loved ones, and all people we know. All who feel your sins are too great to be forgiven. It is for ALL people who have sinned, all we have to do is to repent. Simple.
Remember JESUS when you see the ocean, any clean water, lakes and streams, drinking water, bathing, even the rain from the sky. Remember what our JESUS came to do as a man here on earth, to save every single soul of all mankind so that they may live in peace with GOD and HIS son JESUS in heaven for all of eternity long. Water is everywhere when you think about it.
Even our bodies are made of 60% of water. So think about how letting JESUS is the living water you need to be 100% into your heart , mind and soul . With faith it will be done! Don’t test GOD, ask for HIS help.
I pray you all will be cool and safe and healthy. May you all be blessed by the reading of GOD’s word in this blog, and please do pass it forward for others so they will be blessed too. Amen? Yes Amen!!!
“He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.”
King James Version (KJV)
Dear FATHER GOD,
I do pray for every person that has walked the face of your earth. Be it not saved (yet) or those who have not come to you and your son Jesus for salvation. I pray that those who are reading this you will touch their hearts, open their eyes to what they are missing in pure unconditional love, peace, joy and the knowing that you are in control!
Those who have heavy burdens who need to leave it with you, and who do not know to leave it with you. That you dear FATHER GOD can get them through all of the weight and troubles that this world has given them. I ask for healing of the mind, body and soul for them all to seek righteousness! And for your beloved son Jesus!
For you are fair, loving, good, patient and forgiving at all times. We all need you, every person on this earth! I ask this in Jesus name FATHER GOD and I thank you!
Good morning to all of you!
I do pray that you will have a blessed day and until we all meet the next time of the reading of the nex blog GOD willing. For none of us knows when GOD will send his son JESUS to return. It could happen at any time that GOD sees fit.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
King James Version (KJV)
The LORD is warning all people of the earth of things we are doing to harming each other, the whole earth and our individual selves too. It is all confusion when we do not follow GOD’s laws. The thoughts and ideas we have that are not GOD based are of mankind’s. Man does not know better than GOD. So our ways are not of pure good, for we do things to our limited understandings.
We all make mistakes, and sin because we want to do what we want. Ever try to tell a 2 year old something that they are doing is not right right? And they will let you know thy do not want to listen if they are stubborn. If you don’t have small children around when you go to the grocery store on a saturday morning you might see a scenario like this there. The loving parent will explain to the child, “No you can not have only candy for dinner…” , and the will react. Turn away from the parent upset.
We as adults can do the same thing towards our loving FATHER GOD. Trusting and loving our GOD is what will keep the joy in your heart. You will see there is nothing as perfect and dependable as the love and joy from our FATHER GOD. Nothing. You will always have joy in you when you know this is from GOD, and he is in you.
When our days are done on on this earth and the LORD calls us home….we are then in wait for judgment. We cant pull away and turn in defiance as a small child will because we want to have “candy”.
That part of our lives is done here in the flesh. There is no outlet from death once we are buried into the ground. JESUS came the first time to teach us the right way, the laws of our GOD. Righteousness as how he lived and spoke. How we should live . Salvation is when we trust and believe in JESUS as our savior sent by GOD.
Our final resting place will be where we will wait for our judgement. Our names will be put into the book of life if we deserve it. We will then see the face of JESUS. Our flesh is laid to rest, our souls in sleep until the skies will crack open with JESUS to the rescue for all of us who love Him!
Good morning, afternoon or evening to you all depending when you read this post!
I do hope you all are well and are keeping in prayer. It is harder and harder for those of us who love the LORD to avoid the ways of the world and we may slip or back slide from what others may lead you to do for a time. But because we have the feeling of convection and repent not to turn and do whatever it was never again, we repent.
Those who do not have this feeling of repentance of sins because they love the sin and not GOD may not understand what it is that I am speaking of.
It is spiritual discernment.
We who fear and love GOD because we know HE is all powerful and has a watchful eye on us ALL….know HE is in control.
King David in the bible loved GOD. King David sinned with Bathsheba. Who was the wife of Uriah. King David becomes attracted to Bathsheba who is the wife of Uriah, one of David’s soldiers. The attraction is mutual although both know an affair would break the law of Moses. When Bathsheba discovers she is pregnant by David, the King sends for Uriah hoping he will spend time with his wife to cover her pregnancy. From 2 Samuel 11.
2 Samuel 11 King James Version (KJV)
11 And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.
2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.
3 And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
4 And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.
5 And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.
6 And David sent to Joab, saying, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.
7 And when Uriah was come unto him, David demanded of him how Joab did, and how the people did, and how the war prospered.
8 And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and there followed him a mess of meat from the king.
9 But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.
10 And when they had told David, saying, Uriah went not down unto his house, David said unto Uriah, Camest thou not from thy journey? why then didst thou not go down unto thine house?
11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.
12 And David said to Uriah, Tarry here to day also, and to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.
13 And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk: and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but went not down to his house.
14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.
15 And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.
16 And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.
17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.
18 Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war;
19 And charged the messenger, saying, When thou hast made an end of telling the matters of the war unto the king,
20 And if so be that the king’s wrath arise, and he say unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh unto the city when ye did fight? knew ye not that they would shoot from the wall?
21 Who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast a piece of a millstone upon him from the wall, that he died in Thebez? why went ye nigh the wall? then say thou, Thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.
22 So the messenger went, and came and shewed David all that Joab had sent him for.
23 And the messenger said unto David, Surely the men prevailed against us, and came out unto us into the field, and we were upon them even unto the entering of the gate.
24 And the shooters shot from off the wall upon thy servants; and some of the king’s servants be dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.
25 Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.
26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.
27 And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the Lord.King James Version (KJV)
See, GOD is so cool, more than anyone could ever measure. This story about King David and this love he had for Bathsheba was complicated and deceiving. And it led to murder too.
But King David asked to be forgiven. In 2 Samuel chapter 12 you will read about David’s Loss and Repentance
13Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.”
“The LORD has taken away your sin,” Nathan replied. “You will not die. 14Nevertheless, because by this deed you have treated the LORD with utter contempt,bthe son born to you will surely die.”
15After Nathan had gone home, the LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife had borne to David, and he became ill. 16David pleaded with God for the boy. He fasted and went into his house and spent the night lying in sackclothcon the ground. 17The elders of his household stood beside him to help him up from the ground, but he was unwilling and would not eat anything with them.
These situations in the Bible you will find are like the same situations that happen in today’s time. I feel the Bible is helpful to show how our ancestors who loved the LORD overcame this nonsense of the world through prayer and repentance. Only GOD was the judge then and STILL is today as well.
GOD judged King David, and gave HIS judgment on King David. King David repented asking to be forgiven. And was by our GOD. This is an excellent example as to how patient and loving GOD is still today.
I have heard many people say that GOD will not forgive them for what they had done. So they keep on living the way that they do. This is a lie that the devil is telling you. Plain and simple. This is why it is very important to read the Bible. For whatever sin you are going through right now….you can repent. No one is perfect. We need the LORD at all times and in all things.
This is from Philippians Chapter 4:10-16
10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. 15Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
Let no one lie to you about the love of JESUS. Telling you negative things about GOD and the Bible. Read it for yourself with prayer. One you read it, you very well may find the situation that you are in right now. And how these people in those days got through it. The Bible shows you what will happen when you take GOD’s advice and when you don’t. What is righteous and what is not. What path you decide to choose that you want to live to be saved. Every thing we all do has consequences to answer to from our GOD.
Only GOD will be to right judge, not mankind. For mankind does not run heaven, GOD does. Period. I say all of this my friends so you will not be deceived by those who walk the path of the lost and want you to walk right along with them on it to damnation.
If you seek after JESUS and want HIM with you, just ask HIM to be in your life. He will do it. Give up the sin and ask for JESUS to help you at all times to keep you strong righteously. We who love the LORD GOD are happy to share this good news about salvation for we do NOT want to see anyone we know crash and burn. We who are true Christians depend on the LORD for righteous strength too!
We Christians who truly love the LORD do want everyone to hear the word of GOD, to accept JESUS as their savior and be saved! So we all can enjoy the happy reunion in heaven together with GOD and HIS son JESUS. You know? That will be so cool to see not only your family and friends….but the people you worked with, school mates and even those who were once your enemies that are now saved and love JESUS as much as you do!
Think about how awesome that will be!
Have a blessed day in the LORD GOD. Know that HE loves mankind so much that HE did send HIS only begotten son JESUS here on earth to save us all from our sins. Now we have to do our part, and accept JESUS and repent. And don’t forget to ask JESUS for help in all you do to stay connected to HIM. Thank GOD for JESUS at all times, AMEN!!!
