Holding on to the FATHERS hand.

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.

John 10:18

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.

Psalms 145:14

“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:

Psalm 32:8

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.

Being positive around negativity.

Picture is from this site: http://deliveranceministry.com.au/how-to-handle-court-legal-matters-per-proverbs-25/

Good day to you all. I do pray that you all are and will have a blessed day!

We all need to be and stay encouraged 24/7 by our every loving FATHER GOD. We can not even wake up to get our air to breathe each day without HIM.

Avoiding negative situations can be a test of faith. It is not easy as there are so many people who do not know the LORD, or who do but still struggle hard with being positive.

If we were to be alone or away from negative people for some time , we wou.d relax and enjoy the peace. Many of us can not do this for jobs, family , health or whatever else that may distract us from the LORD.

It takes some prayer and practice to be positive as humanly possible with the help of JESUS to lead the way. Shaking off the nonsense of the day, and just having that JESUS time to yourself in a nice quiet space. It could be in your car when you are on your breaks , or when you are the 1st one up in your busy household at your kitchen table with your Bible.

Positive words to incorporate in our thoughts and talks after reading the word and knowing scripture first and foremost are excellent. They will also have others to speak them too. Encouraging one another with compliments too.

Now with this in mind to encourage our family, friends and coworkers, along with our scripture we will help others besides ourselves once we keep our focus on the LORD. So they can see and feel the same joy/love you do because of the love of GOD in you.

As we with a JESUS heart we can lead others to JESUS who maynot truly know what to do to get to JESUS to be saved. They must confess the LORD JESUS as savior and let HIM into thier lives.

So with giving each other praise, encouragement, and the love of JESUS with us we will plant the “seed of faith” for those around us. And for GOD to nourish the seed into a flown grown born again saved soul.

Have a blessed day, share this post with others so that they too can recieve a blessing from reading GODS word! Pass it forward in faith and prayer.

Seeking the light of GOD!

In the midst of confusion we all need his light.

Our sunflowers are following the sun!

John 8:12

“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.

1 John 4:1

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Light/

“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.

John 9:5 – As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

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.

Nature and all that GOD created!

Colossians 1:16

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:”


A Robin like the ones in our yard.

Hello everyone, I do hoe that your day is going well!

Yesterday, as I had finished my day of working on the garden I was looking at the beginning sunset. The colors were starting to form as the sun was doing its thing the go on to through its task.

As I thought too bad my husband was not out to see it with me last night, he was inside doing his chores. But one of our little Robin friends came by and visited me as I looked at the sunset, chirping.

I said to our bird friend “Hello Robbie, how are you? Look at the sunset that the LORD GOD has made!” The bird chirped once more, seeming to turn his or her head to look at the sunset also.

Now, I don’t know if the bird was responding to me talking to it or not. But it did seem to know I was paying attention to him or her. Which made me wonder if animals enjoy watching a sunset or sunrise too. And if they know anything about who created it.

What GOD created, still each day will fascinate me. Because mankind can not create life of any kind. All we can do is procreate as how we are designed by GOD to do.

There is no wisdom like our GOD’s wisdom, no place. No where. HE knows of what was, what is and what is to come. It is so comforting to know this when you’re going through a situation that you need our GOD to fix!

Every little flower, tree, fruit, plant is designed by our GOD. And to think about all of the types of plant life that there is that we know of and do not is so awesome because none are quite the same. Not even the blades of grass is are the same. Not on all places in your garden or even in different places on the earth.

When you go outside today, think about the beauty that GOD created. Think about how it all is apart of the circle of life, how the rotates around the sun. Making the light day one, or the dark evening, how the stars can be seen on a clear evening sky. It is the same sky that our loved ones before us has seen and enjoyed too that has crossed over to be with our GOD.

Enjoy this day with peace , joy and encouragement from our FATHER GOD. May a blessing be to you all who read this blog post and share it with others so that they will be able get a blessing too. Pass it forward!

Peace!

No Outlet. Only one way to righteousness.

Proverbs 21:21

“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!

AMEN!

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.

Revelation 1:7

“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.”

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.

angry child in the candy isle 2019

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.

20190709_1825267396090891081342167.jpg

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!

Isaiah_26-3

GOD’s blessed son! Jesus is our savior!

img_20150308_131716276259227013483823.jpg

Good morning everyone!

I do hope you all are able to get out and enjoy the summer, for summer here in New York only lasts for a short time. Then the winter comes to visit shortly after. It is the circle of life. Knowing that our GOD is in control is very comforting to me.

I want to share with you what I see that happens to me and other people. Be it we are Christians or not. There are some Christians that seem very mean, unforgiving and quick to judge in ways that say they are holier than thou. This is not good thing to do to each other. And we need to ask JESUS for help in not to do these things.

Luke 6:37

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

King James Version (KJV)

 

We are all sinners. The only man that walked the earth that is greater than any other man, was JESUS. ( That includes all mankind, male or female.) JESUS is the savior of us all, not just some. All who seek after JESUS and turn to Him for guidance as to how to get into heaven. It is impossible to do without JESUS, we need him 24/7. The ways of the world will tempt you to do things that people who do not love JESUS will want you to do to yourself and others with an evil heart. If they do not love JESUS, they do not love you.

1 John 1:8 – 1:10

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 

Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

King James Version (KJV)

 

GOD hates sin. It is understandable as to why too. It hurts all who are involved in it. Who love the sin they are in. It puts up a wall between GOD and us if we let, for our GOD can not look at sin! Only repentance and accepting JESUS as savior and letting JESUS fully into your heart will get us saved.

James 4:7

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

King James Version (KJV)

See when others judge us, for the wrong and we are doing good….this is not coming from GOD. They will attack us who believe in GOD to make us look bad before others who don’t know us or the LORD GOD.

 

Isaiah 5:20 King James Version (KJV)

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

King James Version (KJV)
I say to all who have been hurt by those who have been called everything but a “Child of GOD” to remember who truly loves you.
IT IS GOD WHO LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY! HE SENT HIS SON JESUS TO EARTH TO SHOW US THIS MUCH!!! AND JESUS IS REPRESENTING THE FATHER GOD!!! JESUS loves us too!!!
2-Samuel_22-33 (1)
Pray first for JESUS to come into your heart. Read the KJV of the BIBLE. Listen to what the Bible is telling you. Pray for help, widom and the truth. LISTEN to what GOD tells you when you pray for the answer.
It may not be the one you expect , because you didn’t have the right answer to start with. GOD did and always will.
We were all born in sin from the fall of the 1st sin done in the Garden of Eden. The devil is busy right now trying to keep all people from getting into GOD’S heaven. He was kicked out of GOD’s heaven, and he sure does not want to see any of us getting in there!
Please do not listen to negative nonsense from people about you or anyone. This is hard for we all are human and make mistakes and sin. But the good thing is , we have JESUS who will help us walk on the right path.
As with the air that you breathe, GOD is there!
Be positive for the LORD GOD.
And HE will bless us for doing so!
Have a blessed day, and pass this blog forward so others will be blessed too for reading the scripture in it.
Peace!

John 3:16! The right love!

Where to find the right love.

john-3-16-2

In the world there are many of us who are single looking for the one who will love us with all of their heart as how we will for them. We will look for this person and at times we will look in the wrong places. In the wrong people. For the wrong reasons.

Trusting in GOD’s plan is perfect because only HE knows what lurks in the heart of all mankind. It is hard to trust in GOD when we are stubborn or the flesh is weak. But for some it seems to be easier to trust in what mankind will say just because we want to be right with GOD.

GOD’s love is pure, unconditional, right and comforting. Trusting in GOD to lead you to the right person for you. GOD will not lead to confusion, or about the mate HE has sent before you. You will feel it happen and it will even feel right 100% in a GODLY way. As it has for me, it will for you as well.

The way how GOD has planned it is so easy, right and most of all sacred. The natural male gender is sacred, the natural woman gender is sacred. These two will then bound as man and wife to be fruitful and to multiply making more mankind and womankind.

Genesis 1 27-28

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:

 

When you are feeling lonely, the devil will steal this from you , the sacredness of the natural bound for a man and a woman with his distractions to take this joy from you. You will not know what is sacred by GOD and run from it towards what is not. This can happen to you if you do not have GOD leading you, even from as a child. If you do not know about the word and what GOD is telling us all ….you will not know unless someone tells, you pick up the bible to read it for yourself, or through GOD divine intervention.

Trust in the word of GOD to show you how to deal with the ways of the world and the confusion you see going on right now. looking for a mate is a distraction if you are not listening to GOD who is telling to wait as HE is leading you. The people of the bible had the same issues of what we have today, and with GOD’s help they got through it. See there in the bible there are lessons on how to get through these times from the people in the bible.

You want the best one for you that you can trust, who will pray with you and for you at any second when you need it. Who will go to church with you when you go, this is part of fellowship with like-minded people. There is power in prayer for as you need it, someone will need yours as well too.

The ceremony of marriage is sacred too, and with the right mate you will please GOD. GOD loves us so that in this life we can not see all of it until we are before HIM in HIS heaven bowing before HIM giving HIM honor!

Ravi Zacharias Ministries “Just thinking”

Mr Zacharias will explain this better than I can. He explains the sacredness of marriage and the bond of the union of a natural man and woman in a gentle way. For he very well know that many will not agree with the bible. But it is a person’s choice to listen to GOD or not. But as for me and all of my loved ones we choose to listen to GOD, for it is heaven we seek after to be with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS for all eternity long. Here are some links regarding sexuality in the worlds thinking.

https://www.rzim.org/resources/lgbtq

https://www.rzim.org/read/rzim-global/how-wide-the-divide-sexuality-at-the-forefront-culture-at-the-crossroads

Anything out of GOD’s plan is confusion, strife , sadness and the feeling of emptiness. You will see and hear people who do not have trust in GOD complain about the new person in their life and all of the new ones after that because they leaned on their own understanding.

 

 

1 Corinthians 7 New King James Version (NKJV)

Principles of Marriage

Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me:

It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. But I say this as a concession, not as a commandment. For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that.

But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

Keep Your Marriage Vows

10 Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife.

12 But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?

Live as You Are Called

17 But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so I [a]ordain in all the churches. 18 Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters. 20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it.22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.

To the Unmarried and Widows

25 Now concerning virgins: I have no commandment from the Lord; yet I give judgment as one whom the Lord in His mercy has made trustworthy. 26 I suppose therefore that this is good because of the present distress—that it is good for a man to remain as he is: 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you.

29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none, 30 those who weep as though they did not weep, those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, those who buy as though they did not possess, 31 and those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away.

32 But I want you to be without [b]care. He who is unmarried [c]cares for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord. 33 But he who is married cares about the things of the world—how he may please hiswife. 34 There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband. 35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.

36 But if any man thinks he is behaving improperly toward his [d]virgin, if she is past the flower of youth, and thus it must be, let him do what he wishes. He does not sin; let them marry. 37 Nevertheless he who stands steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but has power over his own will, and has so determined in his heart that he will keep his [e]virgin, does well. 38 So then he who gives [f]her in marriage does well, but he who does not give her in marriage does better.

39 A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. 40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment—and I think I also have the Spirit of God.

It is better to wait for the GODLY mate than to just pick one on your own understandings and desires. We humans do not know what we are doing to each other or ourselves.

If we were abused at any level , age, place, or never taught what love is or the word of GOD….we will give into complicated relationships. Even if they are just your friends you socialize with besides work or school. Even if it is the current “trend” or what is “popular” with many…. if it is not of GOD leave it alone. Your soul is way more important than a weakness of the flesh or a lie of something you think you want to hear.

 

1-corinthians_2-9

 

I will tell you, I as a natural-born woman did want to be married and have kids. But I had known it is better for a woman to wait for GOD to send the right man to me. And not the one I wanted through the flesh. The flesh only sees the cover of what is really in the heart. GOD sees what the heart truly is. A woman who trusts in the LORD doesn’t chase after a man to be her husband ever. Women trust in the LORD who will bring the man who is to be your husband. Men, trust in the LORD who is leading you to be your wife.

Proverbs 18:22 King James Version (KJV)

22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

 

GODS love is unconditional at all times. The right love that will show us the right love. And when we marry someone who is GODLY this love is in them too. This is why it is best to trust in the LORD at all times. GOD will lead us right.

Trust in GOD, trust in HIS beloves son JESUS. For without JESUS the mediator between GOD and man we can not get into heaven.

I do pra that this was a blessing to you, and may you have a blessing from the reding and the sharing of the word of in this blog and the blog itself. Have a blessed day!

Peace!
