Riding with JESUS! Yay!

Just know. it seems everyone has hard times. You are not alone. pray to God for strength. pray to God for help. and this too shall pass! Everything will not always be gloom for you friend! Not sure who this is for but felt someone out there needed to see it. Jesus loves you!! ❤ ❤ Have a blessed day and know that God is in control! So I pray we say, Lord, take control! Take the wheel!

Put God in the driver’s seat of your life! Fasten up your seatbelt and enjoy the ride! Ask God to show you lovely scenery on the way!

When God is driving, life seems so much better and even when the roads get bad. God has a smooth vehicle that just has an amazing way of healing those bumps, and bruises. GOOD! Makes it easy to REST! Make sure you take the Bible with you! Jesus will probably enjoy it if you read it out loud to Him while He drives! ❤ 😀 😀 I am going riding with JESUS! Yay!

Just saying Hi! Worry?

It has been a long two days. I have worked almost non stop 12 hours each day. Not complaining! I am truthfully happy and excited about it!  Making progress! But enough about me. I just came on to say, I pray the reader is blessed. I pray God uplift your mind. Uplift your heart, uplift your spirit, and just fill you with a wonderful spirit of joy and peace and comfort and God send you a sign, that everything is going to be fine!! God deliver us from our worries, from our doubts, from our fears, from our anxieties, and give us a spirit of peace and trust.  Help build up our faith and give us comfort God, in Jesus name Amen!

One thing I noticed in life, so much of my worrying was for nothing. I don’t think I am worried. I do think. But I learned to just trust God. There are things you can change in life and things you can’t.  Perfect planning is not always possible. Like for instance. let’s say you plan a vacation trip. You are all packed and good to go. then next thing, you get a flat tire. Great! you did not leave with that much time for this. So you cuss, you get angered, you say ok no big deal. I have a spare. I can fix this quick. So you do, and again all of a sudden you drive off, get about two miles down the road and all of a sudden the tire pops again.

Now you have no spare. this story can go so many ways. Let’s say some miracle happens and you get to your plane on time. or you cancel and find out later that plane crashes. I don’t really know the ending to the story. the point being you can make plans, plan things perfectly and things can happen you have no control of.

A lot of times when I was younger, I worried about everything. I really took it to prayer.  I heard God speak, why worry about things that could not be?  Have I not taken care of you all this time?  Are you alive now?  Things in life you can change. Some things you can not change and will just be.

I don’t know how to speak worry out of your life. But I do pray God help you not to worry friends, in Jesus name Amen! I am sharing this scripture with a prayer. I pray people learn to make better judgement. Although it is great not to worry, it not wise to not plan my friends. Worry is sometimes useless. Most of the time worrying is overrated. Make plans, make goals, make list. go through your life with a fine comb. Examine self.  Instead of worriers lets be people who make goals and get them done! What are you worrying about?  Is it in your hands? Can you change it?  If you can not change it, why are you worrying? Whatever will be will be and if you can change it, get er done! God bless us all! Love you guys! Have a blessed day dear people! ❤

Matthew 6:26-34 NKJV Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [a]cubit to his[b]stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [c]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Blessed Healing!

The fear of the LORD, is the beginning of understanding. And perfect love cast out all fear!! ❤ GOD says fear not neither be dismayed for I am with you! I will not leave you comfortless. I will not forsake you! Jesus said I am the fountain of LIFE. Drink from my Waters and never thirst again! and it is I who came in LIFE. GOD is the same as the beginning as is now! GOD gave us LIFE, in the beginning, and again through His Son! That is amazing! They are ONE! There is no life without the Holy Spirit and that is TRUTH! and may the truth set us free! GOD has always been the invisible GOD! GOD has also always been HOLY! Without LOVE, no man shall see GOD, you can call LOVE and JESUS ONE! Even GOD! Whom many call the Christ! Have a blessed WONDERFUL day friend!
All Commands GOD ever spoke were indeed LIFE unto us! To those who hear anyways, and those who do not should fear!!! May your fear bring you to trembling, so that you may work out your salvation, and may it be LIFE unto you friend!! Have a wonderful day dear people! ❤ ❤ truly GOD is WONDERFUL! AMEN!
Bodies die. They pass away after the grave. The soul lives. I would seek the ONE who has say over both. I believe with my whole heart that is JESUS! I know what Jesus did for me and honestly, that is such a miracle in itself. I just really believe if God can change someone like me I do believe God can change any willing. It does take true repentance with the heart. Seek it and you will find it! God bless the person who comes to this!
May God bless you keep you and write you in the Lamb’s Book of LIFE! Have a blessed day beloveds!
Proverbs 14 :27 NIV The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
turning a person from the snares of death.
No matter what your obstacle is, what your trial, what your burden, I truly do pray God heal you, help you and manifest the Holy Spirit to the listener! I believe God can perform miracles. I pray God perform one for you today, in Jesus name Amen!

Stepping stones

A lot of people are being stepping stones for the wrong people. and many others are waiting for everyone else to lift them up. The times we live in. So many suffering. there are a million 99 things wrong with the world as we speak.  Hardly any have compassion for any because who can afford to? I see many things. My eyes are open. but honestly, if your eyes are open all you can do is lift them to God, and even if they are closed. I would pray God help me to see, but then some who see pray to make them blind.

I don’t have enough money in the world to solve all the problems of the world. I don’t have much of anything to offer any. But honestly, I believe in God.  I know some will laugh at God. and you will make jokes about God in ways that I have heard before, and honestly I don’t want to change you, for I mostly have learned that there are not a lot of people who overcome hate. They have to want to. and those who hate don’t seem to want to.  They seem to enjoy being miserable. I would say that is not possible but it is. I have seen such with my own eyes.

Perhaps some really are not curable. I know some do die for real. but I do know I have seen miracles of all kinds, and God has answered so much of my prayers and prayers of others. I write as myself because this is who I am. I have lived so many lives, and I don’t mean other lives. I mean the things I lived in my short years. If I spoke everything some would say I was lying, others would have pity, some would say that is cool.

I don’t shun Christian people but I do realize sometimes online it appears that way. and honestly, if people know what I have been through the last decade they might be able to comprehend me better. but I honestly am not trying to get any to comprehend me. I truth be told pray I can say a word that gets you thinking about life. Thinking about God.

Thinking about your future. thinking about morals, values, integrity, virtue. the things that are dying in planet earth. Do noble things exist anymore? What is honor? respect? loyalty? all these things are now foreign words. Almost like the new cuss words. We can’t say those words in public! Oh no unless it is f bombs and vulgar speech, it is not allowed around here! When I was a kid it was the cussing we hid. Now integrity is hidden. Valor is forgotten. We sure do remember to celebrate Christmas though. and all the finer things are forgotten, stepped on, trampled all over and now we are stamped with useless tokens. kind words. empty meanings. broken promises, empty kisses. but don’t tell anybody it’s our secret!

God did not call us to be stepping stones but hey who wants these messages these days? if it is not sex, drugs, violence, death, anything but God, they will hear it. If the blind lead the blind both shall fall in the ditch. when the blind are in the ditch they don’t even know it because they are blind. and my people die for lack of knowledge but not even lack of, just no desire for it. I don’t know which is worst. being stepped on or trampled on in the mud?

First appearances by Michelle Stokes

To those who always think we can make accurate guesses on first appearances. How much time do you think you need to look at someone before you have them all figured out?  How long do we glance at someone and make an opinion on them? (label them, put them in a box) )5 seconds? 10 seconds? 30 seconds? two minutes? Seriously what is your honest answer? weeks, days? Ok, Now I have an exercise you can do.

Go to google, type something like houses, or dogs, or something that a variety of different things will pop up. make sure you are on image mode. don’t hit enter yet. just think about what you are going to google.

Now, whatever that time was, you said it took you to make an accurate judgment of someone is the time you get to spend on Google. Should grab a timer if some of you answered 2 seconds, don’t cheat give yourself two seconds. unless you said days. or weeks, if you said five minutes. if you said thirty minutes. If you said 2 seconds. go to google image, and look at the page for that amount of time. then close google. and grab a pen and write everything you saw. Don’t shut the page but take it out of view. minimize it. Also don’t open it back up. No cheating you only get the time you gave yourself at the beginning.

After you are done writing everything you saw and you are a 100 percent you did not forget one detail. open the page and compare what is on that page with what you wrote.  The exercise came from this article, Deceived By

If your answer was days, weeks, months. perhaps save the page. copy it or something and do yourself a favor and write down everything you see every day (meaning truly spend some time looking at it daily)  and look at your list in whatever time you gave yourself and enjoy the fruit of your labor!! ❤  for if you gave yourself a long time you should have books worth of details!

This exercise was created by Michelle Stokes. designed so hopefully we consider such things!  Food for thought! have a blessed day beloveds! 😀 ❤ Unless you have a photographic memory this exercise probably is good for many! I pray many find the deeper meaning in this message! Have a wonderful day dear people! ❤

Deceived By

life’s little instruction book, It is something I have read through a few times and it always makes me smile. This it is a good little simple book. You can buy it brand new for 20 dollars I see, and on ebook for a few dollars. (whispers I got mine for 75 cents! 😀 ) Not really trying to sell the book but hey at least you know what I am mentioning.

“Don’t be deceived by first impressions.” I was really thinking about this line. it is a quote from that book and one time I wrote an article called don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  But, But, but. we all do that. there is the old saying that says first impressions are everything. and that seems to be true but what happens when we judge something wrong from a first glance?

For half a second a woman can appear to be beautiful. She can seem attractive, but as you start hanging around her, you notice she is not the same inside as out.  Some of the best people in the world are ones you have to take a double glance at. Some of the best books in the world are dusty, torn and weathered.

Some of the most deadly things come in beautiful sizes and shapes and may even appear to be shiny. But after examination, we come to see it is deadly to our soul. I say when it comes to a job first impressions mean everything. maybe perhaps even dates. I honestly am the type of person I will many times show up to dates dressing down. I wear no makeup. I say if he runs now then good. and honestly, if you don’t like me at my worst, you don’t deserve my best.

I am well aware people judge and honestly dressing down gets rid of the people I don’t want around in my life. I mean I love feeling good about myself and being clean and what not, but some people are so obsessed with appearances, they forget the finer things in life. I have my own way of weeding out people I don’t want around me. But this message is not really about me. Just what a thing to consider! I also feel that way when it comes to the bible. Don’t believe what other’s tell you, see it with your own eyes. It is funny how a open heart lets you see things from a different perspective. “Don’t be deceived by first impressions.”

As I was going to go look up the link to share the book I was referencing, I saw this video and decided to share it. It has a couple of the quotes with some video. Thought it was entertaining and worth sharing! There was not really a point to this blog really. I was just sharing my thoughts. I pray the reader is blessed and filled with joy. My activity the next few days may be light, as I am in the process of finishing my goals I started. I don’t know, I seen in my life making first impressions may seem good, but a lot of times I noticed I was so glad I put the further investigation in. For many times first impressions are deceiving. (not accurate)

Either way, love you guys! Have a blessed day or night or even afternoon, when you read this! Shalom! Again there was really no point to this. it was so random. Welcome to my mind! I also do think this book was worth the buy. I picked my copy up for 75 cents at the local library book sale! 😀 What a steal! I mean deal! I mean seriously, what a good buy for 75 cents! Where can you get that for a dollar in today’s time?  I even got a quarter back! ❤  😀 ! GOOD BUY! and the e-version is like 2 bucks. just thought I would put that out there.  Have a blessed day dear people!

Pieces of my joy, part 1

This is a very generic version of a piece of upcoming artwork I am doing. just posting this because I said I would the other day in this post.  I will be creating this into something I will consider art and a present to all my friends who need a piece of joy! I always like to look at before and after pictures. in makeovers, in restoration jobs, in house cleaning, weight loss, before and after of people who work out, and many other things. So I share this before I transform it.  If you are wondering what I speak of. it was made mention of here.  God bless everyone!
