Trying to feed that void that you have in you with the ways of the world will leave empty. Having no satisfaction at all. Not really feeling happy at what the flesh has you doing through the temptations of the world, making you feel sceptical and what appears to be good when it could truly be a good thing. The evil one lied to many people and confused many people into thinking this way.
Falling back into the rut of the feeling of the flesh and not the soul. Our souls are weak without the word and prayer. Without depending on the LORD GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS to guide us through all of this deception, lies and confusion of the whole world.
Those who feed the flesh, walking around without the light of the LORD to guide their steps. Jealous of those who want to seek after the LORD, walk in HIS wonderful light!
Mankind has standards that is set made for all humans to abide by or you are considered “outcast” or not qualified to associate with those who do fit those false stands of conditions. Such as looks, money, where you live, how you dress, where you are assumed to come from.
Because of feeding the flesh we can cause all kinds of harm to ourselves or to others.
Let us begin to feed our souls with the word of GOD to clean our minds of the nonsense of this fallen world we struggle to live in.
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Lean on GOD. HE tells you the truth. There is no way GOD wants us all to fail. HE sent HIS son JESUS here on this earth to lead us to salvation and freedom from the sins we have done our whole lives long!
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
Depending on the LORD will not have you disappointed because the LORD will do what is right for you. We just need to listen to what the LORD is saying once we pray.
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Have a blessed day in the word of GOD and let it fill your soul full! Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Please pass it forward for we do not know who may need a boast of encouragement too.
Hello everyone, I hope your day is going to be a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD GOD has made for us all.
When it is near summer the weather is warmer and things come back from the winter rest they were in. The greenery is now growing up from the ground reaching out for the suns warm rays. You see color coming back in to the land.
You may sit down and relax after doing some tiding up in your garden and say “….ahh” over a nice cold refreshing drink of iced tea. Then as you do here comes those tiny gnats that seem to want to aim straight for your eye, nose or mouth as you open your mouth to drink.
They can not see the whole picture of what kind of trouble they are getting into as you reach for something to swat at it. For if they did, I dont think they would bother you.
They did no have that kind of understanding, all they know is about eating, finding a nesting place and reproducing their own kind.
I am not comparing humans to gnats mind you….but I am comparing the scenario of not having the understanding of our beloved GOD who can see the whole picture on everything
Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJV)
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
I look at these little teenie tiny bugs and just one will annoy you enough to take the joy from trying to breathe fresh air as it tries to go up your nose! They don’t know what they are doing and the consequences of it.
Just like us humans that think we know better than our ever loving FATHER GOD. We are totally wrong. Scripture tells us so such as in Isaiah 55 8-9. And it is for me to know with comfort that a good GOD who loves me knows more as HE guides me from day to day from the evil one and his wickedness.
The evil one is the one who is always trying to “swat” at us humans with his wicked nonsense! Trying to steal our joy and peace!
We do not need anything from the evil one at all and never ever. Like a child running to their earthly dad for protection from the wicked stranger trying to snatch us from our earthly dad’s hand….this is how we need to be in trusting GOD. Running directly to GOD at all times. GOD and HIS son JESUS are the only 2 we can sincerely trust. People will always fall short even with the best intentions.
Thank you for stopping by to read my blog. Stay in prayer and have a blessed day. Share my blog page so others will get a blessing too please and thank you! Pass it forward! You never know who may need to hear these scriptures at anytime. 🙂
Good morning and many blessings to you this new year!
A co worker asked me while we were clocking into work, “What’s your new year resolution for 2020?” I answered by saying “I don’t have any.” That is something I may done once or twice growing up. By now as an adult, lost interest. I will say it is less of stress to not put yourself thru something like that.
Which then gave me a curious mindset to wonder why people go through making these kinds of “promises” or goals.
From what I have learned that is an ancient Babylionan thing of worship to thier gods.
Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named.
Now from the mindset of a Christian who knows there is only one GOD, the goal to having success in any goal is to know we can not make it without our GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS our savior. I know I can not for sure!
“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
King James Version (KJV)
If we do not ask GOD to lead us and we so things in the flesh and not the spirit then we are in a position where we can fail. Look at how the Babylonians failed from praying to false gods.
There is only one and only true living GOD who is the creator of all heaven and earth. Period. With GOD we can succeed. Here are some Bible verses to encourage you as only the word can.
Bible Verses About All Things Are Possible with GOD!
Matthew 19:26 – But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Luke 1:37 – For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Mark 10:27 – And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men [it is] impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Mark 9:23 – Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things [are] possible to him that believeth.
Matthew 17:20 – And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].
Luke 18:27 – And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
Jeremiah 32:17 – Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, [and] there is nothing too hard for thee:
Romans 8:31 – What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?
Job 42:2 – I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no thought can be withholden from thee.
Genesis 18:14 – Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
Jeremiah 32:27 – Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
Isaiah 46:10 – Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Proverbs 3:6 – In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Keep your life simple. Follow GOD’s plan. You will have no stress from letting GOD lead you in your needs. Let this be your resolution for this new year and for all of the new years to come. Joy is in the LORD GOD and accepting HIS son JESUS as savior.
Babylon fell from avoiding GOD. Jeremiah chapter 51 speaks of it plainly. Let us learn from the mistakes that they have made in Babylon and not follow them.
I pray that you all will have a blessed 2020 and beyond. Thank you for reading my posts and liking them as well too. please do feel free to share them to encourage all you do know. For we do not know when JESUS will return to bring all saints back home!
Good morning everyone, I do pray that you will have a blessed, happy, and healthy day! For GOD is so loving and healing! Ask me how I know!
When I think about the people I am close to as in my loved ones, family, friends, and those I meet in passing I do hope that we will all meet up in heaven when it is time. I would not want to see anyone not make it in.
I do pray for my enemies and put them into my prayer list too. I am hoping to have all people in there I have met besides the people I have already met.
2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
King James Version (KJV)
I tell you all, that it is sad when you see people that will not come to JESUS for help for they assume that the sins they are in are so great that they cannot make it in. Let GOD decide that, just repent! The devil has lied to you long ENOUGH!
Saul who was later known as Paul was a persecutor of the Church, doing evil to both Jew and Roman peoples. This man changed and became an Apostle . See, he was forgiven. He repented and was then know as Paul later on .
Accepting JESUS as savior, doing the good loving will of the LORD and repentance will get Paul into heaven and being told “Well done”.
“Well done!” I know I want to hear it. I know I want to see my loved ones who has crossed over there in heaven as well too. And for all of the people I know be it here online or face to face. It will be good when we meet in heaven in the presence of GOD the Almighty, JESUS and all of the Angels too.
Don’t listen to the lies of the devil any longer, listen to GOD and HIS ever loving son JESUS who speak the truth! Repent and do good. Read the Bible, for the people who repented from sin were the ones who wound up doing right by GOD. Showing us all that we can change and do GOD’S will!
Have a blessed day, pass it forward this blog post and the words of the Bible in it so others will be blessed too!
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.
Good morning or whatever time it is during the day for you all! I do pray you will all have a blessed day!
Being a Christian is hard work when you want to do what is right. Being a Christian artist is more of a challenge because many artists I meet in conversation are secular and do not have the same thoughts as I do. And when I meet one like in the organization I am a member of, it is like a breath of fresh air!
In the area mall the Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier aka “FASST” I met up with Barbara and her brother Douglas as they were in the FASST store front as it were their turn to manage the store. As it turns out, she and her husband have a ministry as well!
She is an artist along with her brother and this was good to know. Not all of us artists feel we need to leave GOD out of our lives , and in this world when you want to do clean hearted drawings, it will make those who want to draw things not worth repeating.
People fascinate me because I care about their souls. I draw tracts, Biblical themes , portraits and couples. I do draw still life, but I would rather take photos of flowers to get the full impact of the color of how it is. That’s how I feel about it right now for what I draw, for I maybe led by the HOLY SPIRIT to draw something else.
I do love to enter my drawings in art events. These pictures you see are from last months showing in the FASST art gallery in Binghamton.
Artwork was in one of the local newspapers too.
Always stay humble while sharing your work. I hope I always will be. My husband and other people say I am and that is good. Once you think you are better than others that’s when you are shown you are wrong. I strive to be good and better than I was the last time I drew anything. I draw better from realife and Photos. I am able to take my time and pay attention to the lines of the subject. For when I do quick sketches it will be for children’s books like I have done for the Brooklyn Arts Sketchbook Project. That will be in another blog with those pictures.
Here is a video of the lastest Art Gallery showing.
Once I become known in GODS timing I will be able to make a living from it as GOD sees fit. So with that being said, I am not there yet. But I will not give up for I depend on GOD to lead the way.
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
King James Version (KJV)
That’s what we need to do when we need to get through the nonsense of the world. I pray that in all I do, any blog post I do will encourage others to do GOD’s will in all that you do. For by faith is how we walk, with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS giving a loving guidance at all times.
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.

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.

“RUN – Hebrews 12:1”
God’s Word always blesses and encourages!
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
