When I first saw my beloved Grandmother’s Bible, I was fascinated by it. Her Bible was well worn and well loved looking. She kept it near her on the nightstand next to her bed. She knew about salvation and scripture. I could see and feel the connection of faith my Grandmommy had with GOD and HIS SON JESUS with the HOLY SPIRIT.
She brought up her children in a Christian way of life as best as she could and her children’s children too. (I am one of that generation!😀)
My beloved Aunt was an artist. Self-taught She was very good at it. The picture of this book is one that she had of many.
They showed the first pencil sketch to the water color finish painting. And I watched my Aunt draw line for line. Wanting to draw like she did
My Mom took music and voice lessons. So I looked at the notes on the sheet music 🎼 that made no sense to me at the age I was of, I guess, around 2 or 3. I knew they weren’t letters. They were too wigglely looking ! My Mother has a blessed voice. She still sings some today at home and not professionally, though.
Looked at it, trying to figure it out. But as my Mother explained what they were, then I wanted to play an instrument.
My Mother knew how to read sheet music back then. Right now today, she is just enjoying her pear and quiet.
But the most important Book I have is the Bible. For it is the instruction book for a GODLY life!
I would have to think about this . I can see being mindful to not do anything foolish that could cause harm. But with spiritual discernment about all things, we are in communication with GOD. 😀. We listen to GOD!
Because of my faith, I can’t think of any fear really that I had to overcome. We can get warned of things to avoid by discernment. We then listen to the HOLY.
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.”
King James Version (KJV)
See, GOD didn’t give us the element of fear for we are to depend on HIM 100%. Trust the one who created us. Whose understanding is beyond our human understanding period
GOD knows the heart of all mankind. Yes ALL! GOD knows all angles to all situations and what each heart came into the situations that are put before us. So GOD is ready before we even begin to stop anything that could harm us in anyway!🙂
This is why we trust in our beloved FATHER GOD, HIS SON JESUS, and the HOLYGhost! With them protecting, guiding us, and giving us peace. The peace of a calm spirit, knowing you are safe and sound. Patience as we wait on the LORD GOD 🙏🏾

This is an example of what GOD can do through us to help others. My fellow coworker who made me some delicious sugar cookies one Christmas had mentioned what had happened while she was on vacation from work.
Her sister, who is 4ft 11in tall, had to save her son in law from a house fire. My coworker came home early from her vacation to help and to see what she could do.
Her older sister is 67 years old. Plus, she has health issues that have her bent over needing a walker from what I understand. She is in constant pain. So by looking at her sister, you would never think she could do what I am about to tell you.
When her sister got to the house, the fire had taken over part of the house. The door was locked. No one else was there that could help him. So she had to get in there from the window.
She was calling out to him, and he didn’t hear her. He was inside alone, and his hearing aid was not working ( or off) to hear her or the smoke detectors alarm go off. He was sleeping in his favorite comfy chair. Cozy.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
King James Version (KJV)
Her sister managed to get through that window, pull him out of that smoke filled house, and save his life. He didn’t know what was going on until they got out.
When my coworkers asked her sister, “How did you do it?” Her sister then answered,”I don’t know. “
But then my coworker said to her sister, “It was by the grace of GOD that helped you do it. There is no other way you could have done it.” I smiled and said,”Amen!”
See? Our beloved FATHER GOD watches over all mankind. GOD loves us all so much. HE gives strength and protection 🙏🏾. HE gives us encouragement to get the right thing done just when it needs to be done.
The house was lost, but the souls were saved. Give thanks to GOD for JESUS and all the blessings HE has given and will give to us all by grace.
I hope you all will have a blessed day! And to stay safe and sound!
What GOD has made. Let no man seek to destroy.
Everyone was created by one man and one woman. No one can do what our beloved FATHER GOD can do. We all mankind are the creation. It is not the other way around mankind creating GOD!
Sometimes, we humans think that we know more than GOD who created us when we don’t. And never will, too.
We humans knowingly or unknowingly can be destructive trying to make things what we feel is better.
Life now is so confusing with all of the human “editing “done on what GOD has made as perfect from day one. As it is written in the word of GOD in the bible 🙏🏾. Genesis explains what GOD has created.
Genesis 1King James Version
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
This is so beautiful as to what GOD had done in creating this earth from the sky, the planet s, plants ,animals, and Mankind. All pure and clean before temptation and evil came along.
No sickness or pain. Able to talk to GOD and hear HIS voice. Peaceful, beautiful life. No stress, no fears. Everything got alongside by side .
But then, when satan came along and lied on GOD to Eve , telling her it was okay to eat the forbidden fruit, all kinds of evil came after that. For it started confusion, hate against brothers, and killing of a brother. Cain slew Able. That bite from that forbidden fruit made a fallen world of sin.
The evil one seeks to destroy all mankind, the natural bond between natural born males and natural born females
When mankind does things out of GOD’S order, there is confusion, and then people can not procreate as to how GOD has planned. Men and women are now divided. That special unity that only natural born men and women have is now lost. That gift of natural pure sex between a natural man and woman that is married first before sex is lost.
The devil has now made it so that we do not honor the marriage bed. Nor honor the gender we were born with by going through plastic surgery to appear to look like the opposite gender that they were born with.
Our FATHER GOD is not happy at what we do people. Look at some of the Biblical signs around us happening! Planet earth is yelling at us to listen to GOD!
The Bible is very clear about what is right and what is wrong.
We need to pull away from what is popular with the way the world thinks because this is a fallen world. Caused from one sin from eating forbidden fruit.
Listen and read GOD’S word. Simply obey GOD, listen to what GOD is saying. Repent and follow JESUS. Accept JESUS as your savior.
GOD is loving, compassionate, forgiving, and healing. JESUS came to eatth to save not to condemn anyone. All we have to do is either choose the path to righteousness or the path to hell. GOD will not send people to hell. People send their own selves to hell.
God knows the devil is trying to seal your soul and keep you from getting into heaven. But do you know it?🤔🤔🤔
Being a messenger of GODS word is not easy. When you want to save people from the lies they are told from the devil and his workers, it is hard
People who love sin take it as a personal attack of meanness towards them. Even if you say to them as sweetly and calmly as how JESUS would say. “Go and sin no more.”
Those who feel the sin is part of them like a leg. It will feel like an attack on their leg. Safe, too.
Anf to remain calm when people yell or cuss as how JESUS had fone is awesome. To be a street preacher is hard for you feel no one is listening. Even if you use #tictok #Instagram , #Facebook, or #YouTube as your pulpit. You may feel no one is listening. But there is.
Doing this blog for my FATHER GOD is rewarding when you know people are reading it and are encouraged. Because you have gained another sister or brother in the body of Christ who you will meet in heaven when it is time!🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Stay blessed people 🙏🏾 and keep your faith, and stay in prayer. Stay in contact with our beloved FATHER GOD and HIS SON JESUS at all times!
When the question was stated as practice, I feel it is more faith than “practice.” I have heard that practice makes perfect. In the case of faith and religion, no man or woman can be perfect. This is why we all need JESUS for HE is our perfect savior!
One needs to have a communication with THE HOLY TRINITY. GOD, the FATHER GOD. JESUS the don of GOD FATHER, and the HOLY Spirit.
For me, I would say I do my humanly BEST to obey GOD’S commandments. For if you do believe in GOD, you know there is a heaven.
If you know there is a heaven, you know there is a hell. And you know GOD didn’t create hell for mankind. He’ll was made for satan and the rest of the fallen angels for starting the great war in heaven that he lost, taking 1/3 of the angels who listened to Satan.
Anyone who listens to this satan chooses on their own to join satan and all of the fallen a angel’s in hell. GOD doesn’t send people to hell. People choose to go to hell on their own.😔😔😔
With my faith, I will tell others of the joy it brings me when it is the right timing and they are willing to listen.
I would not want to see even my worst enemy go to hell. This way , by telling people about salvation, they can make the choice to repent and be saved.
If a person doesn’t know about salvation and righteousness, how can they choose that from unrighteousness?
Geepers. What a question for today in 2023. It’s like, do you remember life before television!😄 That would be the same answer for the internet. 😉
January 1, 1983 is considered the official birthday of the Internet. Prior to this, the various computer networks did not have a standard way to communicate with each other. A new communications protocol was established called Transfer Control Protocol/Internetwork Protocol (TCP/IP).
And that was 40 years ago. So before we even had a computer to know anything about the internet we were outside enjoying outside activities.
But on cold days we read books. The Bible was read in hard copy. No looking up verses thru your phone. You hand know your Bible in hard copy to know where to look for certain scripture for certain topics. Like in the movie “The Book of Eli” with Denzel Washington.
You needed to know from the Old Testament and the New Testaments. So that you would know what you were talking about was exactly. Like your computer or phone does now.😯
Even though carrying your phone with you to look up the Bible, for deep study and understanding, you can use the phone as a concordance or Bible dictionary.
So before the World Wide Web, there were books. And books probably on how to make computers and the “WWW”. 😄
