Bible Tracts to encourage.

Getting my ideas together for a tract for Ephesians armor of GOD.

Hello everyone! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day! For this is another day that the LORD has made! YAY!

You know, I maybe an oddball to a lot of people just because I love GOD! But this is my choice to do so….and it makes be happier than anything else in the world as to believe in GOD and follow JESUS!

There are many people who love GOD so, and his beloved son JESUS that we want to share the joy! And some people through the loving word of GOD or in actions of caring. Some of us through illustrations. and Bible tracts. I do both. And what I have always liked was those #Jack Chick bible tracts. I liked the drawings, and the message. I was direct and to the point. As a child riding the subway with my parents there were people handing out these tracts. They are like little comic books….but not really comical. They were meant to lead people to the LORD and be saved.

Yes they were scary, but they are only scary if you do not know the LORD yet. And hated messages if you love the sin you are in, and not the LORD.

But I was never able to keep one. I would take it to school or home and it would be worn out and lost .

Seeing how some people who did not like the Jack Chick.com tracts and I did, I wanted to know why they felt the way they did. They felt as though they were being condemned by those who felt they were “holier than thou.”

And I get that too. They are very direct and preach hard about heaven and hell through situations in life. But no one I know likes to be yelled at and having their finger wagging at them. That includes me. I have met women who felt I should not wear pants made for women (even on a cold day under a dress), or make-up to be well groomed, fashionable modest clothing So yeah. I have had my share of those types of Christians judging me too.

I want to show the love of JESUS in my tracts I am working on. I will share them with you once I am able to somehow save them in a PDF file. I feel I need to spread the love a JESUS in a way that is not pointing the finger , using scare tactics and yelling.

Drawings and more drawings. You know you have to be able to fit the drawing and the scripture on to one sheet of paper. and that can get tricky. You do not want the images or words to be cut off when working on the tract.

The first idea or design always takes me longer to do because it is an adjustment period. Re-figuring how things need to be. And always with the thought that you are doing this with our GOD in mind.

Before adding more detail to drawing.

As I get to the point where i will add some color, I will then need to be able to show you all the finished product of encouragement . It takes me longer than some others. I do have a full time job and other projects I do. So be patient and you will see the finished tract. I might not add color as how I see Jack Chick did not to his. I have to give it thoughtful prayer!

Have a blessed day. Stay in prayer! Avoid negative people who aim to disrespect you in all ways possible. They are distractions from keeping your eyes on the LORD.

Peace!

Hallow means sacred.

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.

hal·low/ˈhalō/verb

  1. honor as holy.”the Ganges is hallowed as a sacred, cleansing river
  2. 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.

Hebrews 12:1 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Race of Faith

“12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,”

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.

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.

GOD is greater than all of our problems!

Good morning, afternoon and evening everyone!

I do pray that all is well with you all no matter where you are today! For this is another day that our beloved GOD has made for us all! A new day and a new beginning

We all go through a test or trials in life. I go through working in an office where there seems to be out of 150 people 2% are believers. So the non-believers run from upper management to the subordinates. This also means that what ever proper morals they may have are reflected in social skills and work skills as well too.

Stay in prayer, find a quiet place at work and silently pray to our heavenly FATHER GOD who sees all and can see the hurt you go through from the wicked ones.

Psalms 37:32 Context

29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. 

30The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 

31The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. 

32The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 

33The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

 34Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it

35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

We believers are very different. This reflects on how non-believers will relate to us. And here is where the trouble begins. They will judge you by what they know, if they don’t know GOD then they judge us by they way of the world. Creating a problem when they need to just simply mind thier own concerns and be right

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!

The inner peace!

John 11:25 Context

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 

24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 

27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

Good Morning everyone!

I do hope that where ever you all maybe on GOD’s earth today that you are in a cool place and are comfortable and safe. It has been hotter than usual here in New York. But right now, it seems to be cool compared to yesterday. I do thank GOD for that.

With all of this heat we are having I do think about when I would head out to the beach and enjoy the ocean water. I would swim in it to cool off or even just to look at it when it was too cold to really swim in it. It was so peaceful for me as a child. Calming i fact, like there was nothing to even think about really and I would fall asleep under my parents watchful eyes.

Enjoying the inner peace!

The only way to have true inner peace is to let go of the issues of the world and just enjoy what the LORD has made.

Peaceful thoughts in a peaceful scene

Church is not the only place that I do find some peace. It is with nature too, the beaches are one of the other places to be for me.

You can have concerns on your mind that you pray over and wait for the LORD GOD to take from you. And GOD will too. But also for me, once I am there looking at the ocean they are washed away!

It is as though the LORD is letting me know that HE “got this”…HE is taking care of my burden and HE will wash it all away! It will be no more to bind me down. I sigh a big sigh of relief knowing that GOD is in control!

Giving me a feeling of inner peace. Joy. And comfort. Knowing that HE has heard my heart calling out to HIM in prayer.

Giving me a feeling of being loved by GOD and HIS son JESUS at all times. Even as I write this to you. Knowing that JESUS is my savior, and has came on earth to sacrifice HIS life on the cross so that I may live, ALL mankind will live who believe and worship HIM!

Our sins are washed away into the sea of forgiveness.

When I think of the ocean or see it, I do think of how our JESUS has washed away our sins through our faith, trust and belief in HIM our savior!

So I do ask you all to remember what JESUS has done for me, you our loved ones, and all people we know. All who feel your sins are too great to be forgiven. It is for ALL people who have sinned, all we have to do is to repent. Simple.

Remember JESUS when you see the ocean, any clean water, lakes and streams, drinking water, bathing, even the rain from the sky. Remember what our JESUS came to do as a man here on earth, to save every single soul of all mankind so that they may live in peace with GOD and HIS son JESUS in heaven for all of eternity long. Water is everywhere when you think about it.

Even our bodies are made of 60% of water. So think about how letting JESUS is the living water you need to be 100% into your heart , mind and soul . With faith it will be done! Don’t test GOD, ask for HIS help.

I pray you all will be cool and safe and healthy. May you all be blessed by the reading of GOD’s word in this blog, and please do pass it forward for others so they will be blessed too. Amen? Yes Amen!!!

Peace!
