Good day everyone! I do hope that you really are having a good day today. It has snowed some here and made the back yard with a thin covering of white.
I think about when I was a child and how things were when I could actually hold on to my parents hand and trust them to guide me through the paths we were taking without a second thought to the matter. Going across the street in front of the cars when all you can see is the grill on the front of the car ! Let alone how big the trucks looked back then.
I was happy to feel safe while holding on to their hands. They know how to manage through the cars as they stopped for the red light. But at the time as a small child, I though the cars stopped because they knew we wanted to get to the other side. I was too small to look up and see the stop lights! LOL!
Praise and glory be to GOD to have good parents that took care of me. Bless them.
But you know what? Our GOD is even way far better than our parents were as we were children because GOD is perfect. Unconditionally perfect at all times looking over us. Giving us what we need, because he knows what we need even before we do.
18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from My Father.”
It is so comforting to know how thr LORD GOD loves us all enought to have sent HIS only begotton son JESUS here on this earth to save us and be our savior.
As a child of GOD, I know I have a heavenly loving FATHER always guiding my steps as I go along the way. Holding me up even if I slip and fall…..HE will pick me up. Keep me safe.
“The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.”
King James Version (KJV)
Isaiah 59 (KJV)
59 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
8 I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will give you counsel and watch over you. kjv
At times I will look up to the heavens to acknowledge that GOD is watching over me. And stretch up my hands as if I were a small child wanting to hold on to my ever loving FATHERS hand. Because I know HE is there watching over me. Always in all I do. I depend on GOD to guide me for HE knows what is on the road ahead of me and is keeping me safe and sound.
Praise and glory be to GOD ALMIGHTY now and for all of eternity long!
Have a blessed day and my you be blessed by the reading of our GODS word. Pass it forward to others so that they may read this blog and feel encouraged and to know that GOD loves them too!
Good day everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day that the LORD GOD has made!
I want to share something with you all. I have seen these two videos and they are about as pure in heart as can be. What we can learn from these children is that when you have a friend or friends you share your love for them.
Children are innocent and if they are not influenced by the ways of the world who teach hate and all manner of evils will love one another with a GODLY innocent heart.
This is what is taken from us when we are out in the world…..going to school or work or whatever. That warm feeling of comfort is taken away with lies and other abuse. If it is in the home, then it was led into the home by lies and confusion.
Children need to be protected and loved, this is how they learn to be happy like these children are. In these videos when I saw them, they touched my heart. Some of you may have seen these already. But being me , I need to share this in case you have not.
Children being happy to see another child like them. The children see no difference in each other. They are very happy to see each other and to be with each other. That is how they are before the world steps in to take away that joy!
When I think about the what grown people do to each other , it is horrible. Looking at how the boys are running to each other with their arms out to greet each other is so very touching.

If we remember as a child, that friend you loved and shared childhood memories that were good and had and adult intervene and pull you two apart, you will remember that. That was an ungodly thing to have happen.
These children are blessed because they are doing what GOD wants them to do. To get along with each other and to love each other as people who are like them. Listen to the videos and gain an understanding of what it is to have a friend you see no color in.
Have a blessed day, life in the LORD GOD. For we all want to be with GOD and HIS son JESUS when we die and live in heaven with them. Peace is a good thing. Share this post with others so they will pass it on and be blessed too.
Good morning , afternoon or evening to all who are reading this blog today. I do pray that you all will have a blessed day in the LORD!
As each year in time, it gets closer to the return of our JESUS coming again to take all of the people who love HIM away with HIM. We are here in this fallen world to cling to our faith in our loving GOD and HIS loving son JESUS. Our trust and prayers to our GOD for us to have eternal peace.
Confusion, defiance, going against all that is right and Holy by calling it wrong seems to be the normal way of things today. It must be close to what Noah saw in his days before the great flood.
And in all of this confusion we wait in prayer for our saviour to return. But while we are here we must pray for all those we meet in passing. Our families and loved ones. Our beloved friends who we hold close to us too as if they are family. And also our enemies, those who seek to do us harm.
These people who hate us , hate our ever loving GOD too. They feel the need to hate us too because they know that GOD is in our hearts….they can sense it. Even at 1st glance. They do not want you around. Period. They will have to answer to our GOD for all they do to us.
These worldly people will always have more friends than you simply because they will be around like minded worldly people. There are more worldly thinking people around than there are saved and love GOD.
It is our job as Christians to try to spread the good news about salvation to these people in a loving way. Never harsh. We should give them hope and an truthful answer to why things happen. We all have a burden to carry or a cross to bear. But because of the confusion, they will or may assume wrong. This is why we need to tell them about JESUS in a loving way and let them know we all are sinners too. No one is better than the other, the only man to walk the earth with out sin was JESUS.
You will find people who do not have a connection to our GOD everywhere there are pepople, for the devil is busy trying to steal souls.
So this is why I say we need to not only pray for our loved ones, but for all people we know. Friends or not, they need prayer as well as you and I do.
My prayer book.
I started a prayer book. My book is not a fancy one. I little spiral note book that is small enough to fit in my pocket or bag. Love how small and thick it is at the same time.
The first page has my prayer for all of the people I add to the book. I add the names and what the need is or not. The LORD knows their need and that is what is important their need. The LORD knows the details.
It will fill up fast when you see how many people might confide in you with the situations that they may have. When you have a peacefulness about you, people will come to you who are seeking GOD and want to have someone who cares about them around .
Not like those who hate GOD and have no intentions on changing, but those who want to know GOD and are aware that there is a GOD. They are “babes in the LORD” as how my Husband will best explain it. I think this is a good explanation!
I have heard of people praying for people and then adding them to their prayer list since a child. Some would have more than book from doing so for years. Each person will do so in the way that they feel the LORD is leading them to do it. There is no set formula but a sincere heart and compassion for the people you write in your prayer book.
“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)
Our enemies do not realize what they are doing and the consequences that will come from it. They have not a clue. And if they feel there in a GOD, they may not care what our GOD thinks or GOD will not see what they do if they do so in secret. Yeah, but we who love and fear GOD know way better than that.
Here is some scripture to get things started in understanding why we as CHristians need to pray for all people. JESUS sacrificed HIS life on all of us people. So a loving prayer for all people is nothing compared to what our JESUS has done to save us all from sin.
