I do hope all is well and as we give our GOD another thank-you! For another day here on this side of heaven to give GOD praise thanking him for all HE has done. Praise and glory be to GOD almighty now and for all of eternity long. It is so good to know we all have a perfect and loving FATHER GOD watching over all of us each and every single day.
I want to share with you what I am learning about fasting in this current day for me right now. I am fasting with two of my children under this Bible application. I will say that I do find it very helpful with the scripture that was chosen. We are in day 7 of our fasting and I am doing my fast according to the fact that I am working and starting off eating so light straight off the bat will make me light headed and not keep at it.
For even doing the fast by skipping even one meal for me and anything that is not allowed in the fast is just a beginning. We are praying for the areas that we need help in besides for all members of the family that we will need help in.
Matthew Chapter 6
16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
I will say that getting closer to GOD and HIS son JESUS is a lifelong learning experience. Even when you think you have learned what you can understand for your age…something else will test you to give you wisdom. I recall many of Pastors will humbly say that they are continuing to learn more of what GOD is in need to show us so that we can be better minsters to others.
We all need to learn all each day, I will not assume that me as a human that was created by GOD the creator knows as much as HE.
This is an bonding and cleansing time for me, and with the scriptures that I am reading right now, even though I may have read them times before there is a new meaning or understanding that is learning for each of this as we are going through our day. Distractions will come that to turn your head away from the FATHER GOD and JESUS which is annoying! But we will always turn back onto the road of righteousness heading for our GOD and JESUS.
“So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.”
King James Version (KJV)
Have your Bible with you so you can look up scriptures on your own and feel GOD and JESUS with you, and be able to talk to them as though you can see them as well feel their mighty presence ! Praise GOD!

Good morning to you all , I do pray that you all are well!
This is a new month going into a new season of life that our GOD has given us all. A new chance to be right with GOD and accept our JESUS as the saviour of all mankind. To break those chains of sin through accepting JESUS as the way to heaven! Yay!!!!
Also it is the time when the leaves change and turn from a beautiful green to all of the autumn colors which are equally as beautiful! The plants will now begin to go asleep under a blanket of snow until the LORD wakes them up for spring to greet us with their new colors of life.
Many people love the cooler weather more so than the warmer, but I do love both because it gives you a chance to love both worlds. But what concerns me is the what people who do not understand that holiday that many choose to celebrate is not a good one to follow considering what it stands for.
honor as holy.”the Ganges is hallowed as a sacred, cleansing river
To hallow is “to make holy or sacred, to sanctify or consecrate, to venerate”. The adjective form hallowed, as used in The Lord’s Prayer, means holy, consecrated, sacred, or revered. The noun form hallow, as used in Hallowtide, is a synonym of the word saint.
As a person that truly loves GOD and his son JESUS, I do not want to see anyone, and I mean anyone perish from being confused at what the evil one has been telling them for years. Thinking that there is nothing wrong with this celebration on the last day of October. It is a pagan holiday that witches celebrate. In these days it is covered up with candy and making dressing up as demons cute. In the mindset that because children love candy , we can teach them that nothing is wrong with halloween.
Training your children to celebrate a pagan holiday that will WEEN/WEAN your child away from the Christian way of life. See this is what I see when I see the word halloween.
HALLOW meaning scared. Our GOD in heaven is sacred and all that is there, His son JESUS and all he has done to save souls of all mankind who do believe in HIM. WEEN/WEAN means to being accustomed (someone such as our GOD and JESUS) to managing without something on which they have become dependent or of which they have become excessively fond. So when you put the 2 words together alone that is not a good thing. It should make you feel uncomfortable to even be around such things.
When you are a child, you see candy, fun and parties that you are invited to, going door to door to your neighbors for treats, wearing costumes of your favorite cartoon characters and then coming home and eating the candy apples and candy! Wow did you have fun then and the rewards that went alone with it too!
If you have not grown in faith, then you still will celebrate the holiday with going out to bars or parties for drinks to have your fun as an adult. Not seeing that this is wrong because you are having fun and you love it. But that’s the hook. The hook is the candy as a child and to keep it going drinks with confusion as an adult with your friends.
Those who do not celebrate the holiday are considered as looney because they don’t know what they are talking about. But we do my friends. This is a serious game to be played when you “wean” yourself from our ever loving GOD.
Research for yourself to see what halloween really is, where it began, and WHY. Your soul , your babies, family and all people you know and love are at stake. Even those you know in passing and do not know. Every single soul.

Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by! I do hope all is well and that you are able to leave your homes and get a break from being sheltered from the storm of the covid-19.
It is good to know that you are are safe and sound. In the comforts of yur own home. Feeling well or getting over that covid-19. Some good comfort food if you are able to get it makes you feel better.
As I was talking to some people about how well our Grandmothers were excellent cooks…we all remember chicken and rice. I remember my Grandmother making smothered chicken and rice. I remember eating that when we had fried chicken and then the left overs for the next day was the smothered chicken with onions that was very good.
We all have a special meal that our beloved Grandmothers made. But each one of my friends would say that they had chicken and rice. We learned that our homes made it different with the same basic ingredients. Still in its way the same.
“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:”
When as a child I would see that my friends Nancy would have something similar to this meal below.
1 Corinthians 12:6
“And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”
King James Version (KJV)
In my house we would have something similar to this which was smothered fried chicken.
In my husbands family , they would have a meal similar to this…
In my great Grandmothers home it could have been something like this one below. I did not know my Great-grandmother so the recipe went with her. 😦
Or even one like this below may have been what my Great-Grandmother may have had as a child growing up as an Native American. She may have cooked on a cast iron pan like this one.
And with the Native African ancestry, the meal could have looked like this below.
All of those delicious meals I had to start somewhere. From some point. And the point that I am trying to make is that we all maybe different on the outside, but we are member as one body of Christ .
Different spices. Different cooks. All that can make a good meal to feed any hungry tummy. Just like the word of GOD feeds our hungry souls. And can feed ALL souls!
Our souls need to be fed with the word of GOD as though it was chicken and rice. To be encouraged and to be known how much our GOD loves us so.
Give yourself a hug, knowing that we share the body of CHRIST JESUS. JESUS is in us who are in the body, and know that we “hug” one another right now in this time of this pandemic. You are never alone or unloved when you know GOD and HIS son JESUS is with you at all times. ALL TIMES!!!
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
King James Version (KJV)
Enjoy some healthy comfort food while reading up on the word of GOD. There is no perfect comfort like this anywhere. You will not have the distractions of the world around you. Just peace. And maybe this is what our GOD wants us to do, reconnect with HIM.
Have a blessed day, stay safe, keep washing your hands , stay cautious at all times by being aware that the pandemic is not done.
Hello everyone, thank you all for stopping by to read GOD’s words and my blog! For the word of GOD is very encouraging and loving for us all.
Many times we as Christians will go through tribulations that are coming from those unsaved people who have an evil heart. Suffering from what they do for as long as they think they can get away with what they do. Some may stop after a time, and some will take that evil with them to the grave.
The evil one has them and their souls. And wants all of GOD’s children to fall from grace as he has done before the creation of mankind. So we need to always pray and ask our GOD for strength to make it through theses tests of faith.
The devil is persistent, and because we mankind are in GOD’s image, for the devil tempted Adam and Eve in the garden of eden.
We go through these tests of faith and pull through them so we can be stronger, give GOD praise for saving us and pulling us through. This encourages others and they will see our faith and seek after our GOD.
Many times our GOD has done things for me and all of my loved ones. I will tell of the time when there was an icy road we had to cross to get home. Our GOD spared both my husbands life and mine on that cold night a few months ago. Praise GOD now and for all of eternity long!!!!
See our car could have been totaled, we could have been in the hospital or have died. But he spared us from getting hurt in that ditch, and we did not have to pay a large bill for the car to be fixed or ge a new one. A simple tyrid and a new tire was all we needed. Praise and glory be to GOD ALMIGHTY now and for all of eternity long! 🙂

Ha! But GOD does. Just know when this test is done, and you come out of it clean and unharmed who did this for you. GOD and HIS son JESUS.
Have a blessed Sunday, stay in prayer at all times….avoid negative people who will try to distract you from keeping your eyes on the LORD. Feel free to pass this blog forward to those who will need to be encouraged as well too! 🙂
Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are well and safe and sound away from the issues of the day. 🙂
As we all who dwell upon the earth know of the situation going on with the COVID-19. We are all now under a new lifestyle. ALL of us across the entire globe. We know of some people who have been struck with this virus and in some cases there are some of us who may have had it and not have known because it felt like the flu. And come to find out later that you once had it, survived and are feeling back to normal.
This is a very humbling situation that we all are in. I have been working and taking care of my loved ones as the rest of us, with concerns about the elders in the family who can not make it out on their own. They really should not anyway due to the virus.
I had made my family some masks, for they are a commodity like fresh water these days. (And bathroom tissue!) Working in the health field, I had an opportunity to get a couple of masks that are considered disposable that have the elastic to hold on to the ears. And this was during the flu season when I got a couple not knowing what was to come.
Not particular of the color combo right now, but the light color ones show my makeup too quick. And we are required to wash our masks each day so I say this for us all…wash them each night by hand the ones you have.
I tell you my friends this is the most humbling attitude I have seen most people have at this time in our lives. I many people say that there is a GOD, who have not before. And some have fear into them for not knowing what to expect from here on.
But I will tell you all not to have fear. For there were plagues in the Bible days too. Like the one at Easter time….called passover.
Exodus 12:13 King James Version (KJV)
13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
The blood is the blood of a sacrificial lamb. And to me from my understanding , in today’s times this blood is the blood of our beloved JESUS! Our innocent loving JESUS!!!
We need to cover ourselves, our family, our house, and all that we have with the blood of JESUS. Not to be stubborn like the Pharaoh of egypt in the days of Moses. The Pharaoh Ramses was stubborn and did not want to listen to what Moses was telling him. This is scripture in the book of exodus shows what will happen to people who will not listen to warnings.
This is why I will tell the word and good news about our JESUS to others so that they will be reminded of this and those who do not know will. We all need to stay in prayer and keep the blood of JESUS on us so we will be spared the plague.
Fear is not part of the issue when you trust in GOD. It is comforting to know you are protected because you trust in HIM and have faith. And when you have this faith, HE will not let you down. Depend on our GOD at all times.
Even though you will be required to wear a mask, it is by law to do so as we watch and pray. Some will say because of faith they feel they do not need one, But is you know not to stick your hand into fire, then you will know it is safe from being burned when you don’t. Wear your masks, keep your faith, and wash your hands.
If you are in a situation where you are shut in your house, let it be known you are safe there. Stay in prayer, and read the word of GOD. The Bible shows us all lessons to be learned from the wrong paths one may take, and the rewards you WILL get for choosing the righteous paths that lead t our GOD.
Please do pass this blog forward with the word of our beloved GOD so that others will be able to enjoy the blessings. Thank you very much for stopping by to read this blog. Be encouraged and know that our GOD loves you.
Hello all, I do hope you all are well and virus free or getting over it and are on the mends.
Having the peace of mind and comfort knowing God Almighty loves you is so coming and peaceful. As you go through these times in this world I feel the need to remember and remind others of this blessing.
We will always meet more people who are not faithful than who are. And we will always need to be ready to spread the good news of the word. For there our Father lovingly will give instruction on life and how much HE loves us.
HE also tells us of the blunders we fall into when we want to do things our way and not HIS way in the Bible. We all have the freedom of choice on how we choose to live. HE showing us what people went through in the Bible from choosing the ways of man and not GOD’s. All in the old and new testament, so we will learn by example.
Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible are good examples. One who choose to follow GOD and one who thought he was god. Daniel was blessed for listening to GOD which kept his life simple and humble before GOD. Nebuchadnezzar thought he was a god and made people worship him or die.
Daniel chapter 5 verse 30-33kjv
30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.
I have seen many in great power fall like this. Not knowing GOD, or that the things they do has consequences that are from the choices that was done to themselves or others. King Nebuchadnezzar is an example of this. He mocked GOD in his way and was brought to his knees for 7 years eating grass on all fours as an animal would have.
So all this is tosay, our GOD watches over us all. And those who do harm to those who love GOD will be brought down to their knees too as well in todays time.
No one can out do our GOD. Not even the devil for he was kicked out of heaven for all of the trouble he caused even before GOD created the earth. So what ever your situation is at this point, know that our GOD is greater and will heal.
Those who are the most stubborn and prideful wil be humbled.
Stay safe and sound. Stay healthy. Feel free to pass this blog forward to share with those who need to be encouraged too. Thank you very much for stopping by! 🙂
Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are being safe and sound in this day and time of the COVI-19. Wash your hands and wear those disposable plastic gloves if you can. And wipe things down with disinfectant too. Wash your fresh veggies and fruits down with mild soapy water and rinse them off after that. AND above all stay in prayer and we all will get through this!
And once we do give thanks to GOD that HE has kept you safe and sound and got you through it. YAY!
I have been giving people I come across even for a minute some scripture to encourage them and brighten their day. You will be surprised to find that there are more people out there that will call on GOD and have faith than you realize! And this is so great to know!
Those of us who can , should make something to give to people to have in their hand to give them some comfort and scripture is it from what I know. Some people maybe looking for some kind of sign that GOD is still there. Being confused by what is happening tight now in 2020 today.

(Read More…)
There are so many verses in the Bible that can touch all souls and give them some peace. Even those people I have met who were not strong in faith,are now starting to think about the things they do. And will find some peace in hearing scripture, but be cautious and use discernment. There are those who even if JESUS stood before them would not accept HIM. Pray over your tracts so that GOD will give you them to the ones who will listen and pray for those who will not. 🙂

Praise and glory be to GOD for another day that the LORD has given us all!
Hello all and thank you for taking the time to stop by and read this blog.
Tomorrow is the celebration of the day that our JESUS gave HIS life so that we all may live. As the obedient son of GOD, HE had done what was our GOD’s will to save the souls of all mankind that have accepted JESUS as savior.
Faith and the love of the most HIGH who sits on the throne and HIS beloved son JESUS is what keeps us all waiting for the return of JESUS so we can be in heaven where we all will know what it is to feel the pure unconditional love coming from GOD.
If you never truly felt love, then this is the one place you will surely feel it is in heaven. You only get a fraction of it living here on earth as a saved soul in the body of Christ. But the whole portion is there with our GOD.
JESUS paid the price for all of us to get there to live in our new home. JESUS suffered at the hands of mankind and HE did not have to at all. HE could have said to GOD please bring me home. But HE did not.
MARK 15:16-32 KJV
16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. 17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head, 18 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! 19 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. 21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross. 22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. 24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. 25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. 26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, The King Of The Jews. 27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. 28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. 29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, 30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross. 31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him. King James Version
As I think about all of the nonsense that we who love GOD go through in this fallen world, I can not imagine being no way having the same love and peace without GOD and HIS son JESUS. Because I know I have their love all around me.
I cry when I think about how much our beloved GOD loves us so and HIS son JESUS too. When you see JESUS on the cross this is how much HE loved us, HE gave HIS life (it was not taken) on the cross. This is how horrible sin is to our souls….it is disfiguring pain taking all joy away from you.
It even hurts me within when a person says negative things about GOD, and how they have rejected GOD. And will not accept our JESUS as their savior. Some people have a misunderstanding with JESUS and maybe angry with him or our GOD. So being hurt and prideful they turn away. This is exactly what the evil one is hoping for, they we all would turn away from GOD and JESUS.
Let us all be ever so grateful that a GOD loving, strong loving man like JESUS walked the face of the earth to give us courage, teach us the ways of GOD, and be the mediator between GOD and man for our prayers. JESUS knows what our pain and struggle feels like. Showing by example how to be righteous so we can get into heaven and have eternity with HIM.
Stay in prayer at all times and keep your faith. Thank you for coming by, pass it forward the word of GOD. Be messengers of peace and the word of GOD wherever you may go.
Hello everyone! I do hope you will have a blessed Easter in spite of the covi-19 pandemic right now. It can not stop us from praying, and for some it may make us pray even more!
We are home from going to Church today and I tell you I do miss the fellowship and hearing the word from the Pastor of which ever Church my husband decides we go to on Sundays. We attend the local Churches and those that are not too GOD willing once we are able to travel again to them!
It is not the feeling of being shut in, it is the feeling of being safe and sound from whatever is going on with the virus that has affected the whole entire planet.
Some people are being led closer to GOD because of the issues of the day for right now. Some of the people I know will need to collect unemployment for right now until the situation is done with the virus and the companies can rehire people back to pay their bills.
You can not know too many people who love the LORD. This is one of the reasons as to why we go to more than one church. We love to travel when we are able to. (right now due to the covi-19 pandemic we stay local.) Each pastor has his own way on delivering the message from GOD. Each Pastor has his own personality that will touch whomever needs to be touched by GOD’s words to lead them to HIM.
Stay in prayer and know that GOD is watching over us all and keeping us safe and not locked up! Thank you for coming by to read my blog, feel free to pass it forward and share the blessing of GOD’s word. 🙂
Good morning everyone, I do pray that all is well with you all and that you are not struck by any kind of illness such as the covi-19.
Here in New York there is such a different way of life now since the virus made it to our shores. How we greet our loved ones to just even going to work and shopping for our food. Travel is different too, less traffic and conjestion to go through too. I do work for a hospital and even thugh I want to sell my handmade items, the main job is what is bringing in the money right now.
People are more focused on buying the things that they do need the most of. And this is understandable. The tear of the unknown has made people go on a mad panic rush to buy toilet tissue.
I don’t get the rush for that, but I do for food. You can always wash yourself with soap and water and a washcloth in the shower when you do not have toilet tissue. In fact you will be cleaner if you did. Here are some thoughts on this site on alternatives to toilet tissue. https://parade.com/1011639/nicolepajer/toilet-paper-alternatives/
Fear is not a good thing to fall into, it confuses the mind and will have you distacted from our GOD as the correct thing to do. I know when I am talking to peoplle I will mention theses verses you see pictured here from Psalms 91:10-11.
GOD’s word is awesome and perfectly to the point. With all of the virus concerns regarding this pandemic, we still need to listen to GOD first and foremost. Information that comes in through your tv, radio, or other media will need righteous discernment to make it through all of this, and we will.
For we leave our faith in our ever loving GOD and HE will and does steer us clear of all evil. You will be in awe when you see the blessing that our GOD has given you and me once you can say “wow, we all made it through!” To all of your loved ones and friends.
