Big decisions

Today is the day! The decision will be made. Who will be our next President? 

Will fellow Christians finally stand together and pray for this country? Will we rise up together and fight for our religious freedom. Stand up for the rights of the unborn child. 
(Did you know that when Mary was pregnant with Jesus they never referred to Him as a fetus but that she was with child. 

Luke 2:5

5 He went to be registered with Mary, who was promised in marriage to him, and who was expecting a child.”)
No matter the outcome of this election I have no fear because God is the ruler of all and has given Jesus authority over Heaven AND Earth
Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Our God is bigger than any of these political problems we face. At the end of the day you must ask yourself, when you voted, did you stand up for your faith? Then ask yourself how your relationship with God is? Ultimately that us what this all means. Will this bring us together as Christians? Will we continue to seek God. Share the gospel and love and help others?  
This is not the biggest decision of your life. It’s important who you vote for but not the most important. The biggest decision is do you stand with God or this world?
Let’s join together and pray that no matter what the outcome God will be the ruler of our lives no matter what!
God bless

About

My eyes don’t see very well but I have realized that this is a gift because it has allowed me to view the world differently. I am a Christian. I am a mother to a wonderful 10 year old boy. I am a massage therapist that just wants people to feel well so instead of focusing on their aches and pains they can focus in what is important. Their faith, their family their passions.

The First Step


I sit and pray and I ask God what do you need me to do next? What is the next step you want me to take? Then that phrase ‘next step’ repeats in my mind and I think of the story in Joshua When they were going to cross the Jordan River and they had to trust and obey God knowing there would be a way across. 

Joshua 3:13

13 ” When the priests who carry the Covenant Box of the Lord of all the earth put their feet in the water, the Jordan will stop flowing, and the water coming downstream will pile up in one place.”

See, God gave Joshua the instructions to cross the river. To take the first step to see what would happen. To see how God would get them across. Trusting and obeying but they had to take that first step to see. When they did the water did stop flowing and they were able to walk across!
I sit and think that I have such an ease in expressing myself in writing and if I’m in the company of close friends or a small group I have no problem using my voice but when I feel unsure or unsafe of those around me fear takes over. I don’t want that fear to consume me. I have to remember that I need to speak to first word and God will carry me through. I need to take the first step towards the direction God wants me to go and He will guide the way.

 I can no longer sit back and wait.

 I can no longer sit in silence. 

I must take action

I must use my voice

I must share my faith without fear or uncertainty

But I must speak the first word

I must take the first step.  

Love Anyway



“I’m going to love you anyway”
Sometimes I don’t feel your love back

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I feel you don’t even think about me 

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I feel like you have walked away never to return

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I think you make other things or people more important than me

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes I feel hurt by your actions

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometime I feel you don’t even deserve my love 

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes You aren’t going to agree with me

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you mess up 

I’m going to love you anyway

I’m not always going to agree with you

I’m going to love you anyway 

Sometimes you don’t feel your best

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you are going to be so sad and down and feel alone

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you are going to give up

I’m going to love you anyway

Sometimes you may forget me 

I’m going to love you anyway
-No matter what, love is more than just your feelings

It’s an action word that you choose everyday

No matter what

I’m going to love you anyway

Whether you deserve it or I deserve it God loves us anyway

When we turn from Him he awaits patiently with Love for our return

When we make other things more important than Him like money, sex, people, job etc 

He loves us anyway

We don’t even deserve His Love for how much we mess up daily but He loves us anyway

So why is it so hard to love our neighbors anyway whether they seemingly deserve it or not. Do you think you are always deserving of Love?

What a blessing for those that do love you anyway
“So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”

John 13:34-35 

I would rather be single than meet someone who isn’t you

I would rather be single than meet someone who isn’t you

If I close my eyes maybe I could see you. If I close my eyes and imagine who you could be maybe when I open my eyes you will be there. Standing in front of me. Whenever I think of you, I wonder where you are, who you are, what you will look like and if possibly you are thinking about someone like me?

Do you even exist and will I ever cross your path? Can I see you? Hear you? When will it finally be time for our worlds to connect?

It is a mystery floating in the air. It is fun to imagine and daydream of you. I wonder how you will fit into my life? How I will fit into yours? I would rather be single than meet someone who isn’t you. There are so many “not” you out there. Will you be as I have imagined or even better?  

I wonder too if the opportunity has passed me by or will another chance present itself? I hope and I pray that when the time comes my eyes will be open and my heart will be healed. 

I imagine you will adore me and my son. My friends and family will welcome you as yours will welcome us. 

I don’t expect us to always agree but I do hope we always love and respect one another. 

I believe God is preparing me as He is preparing you. I believe we will meet and be together in God’s timing I’m learning to trust this more and more.  

I imagine it all to make sense and be completely magical. I imagine us working everyday together to show each other that love. I imagine us awake at night talking and sharing our faith. I imagine you to be my rock, leader towards God, my best friend, my forever love. 

When I am where I need to be and you are where you need to be then we will find our way there together

Until then you will only be a thought, a dream, a mystery 💫

Keep going

I have been told that I’m ridiculous for sharing my faith publicly because behind all this I’m not perfect. That somehow I have no right or no business sharing this with others because I mess up. I never ever have claimed to be perfect or holy. I have never claimed to know everything or have this all figured out. I know I am flawed. I know I don’t always say or do everything perfect. Whose standards am I trying to meet anyway? Who has the right to judge what I do besides God? If I am in the wrong please let me know because I don’t want to hurt others. I don’t want to do wrong by God. I want to please my Heavenly Father and I know I probably don’t always but teach me instead of judge me. Guide me instead of hate me. 

What if I’m not perfect should I not share God’s Word? What if I still make mistakes even though I go to church, pray, read the bible. Should I stop talking about Jesus? Because I’m a sinner does that mean I don’t have any right to share what I learned? Because I don’t always say the perfect things or act perfectly all the time. Should I give up? No! Absolutely not! And let the devil defeat me? Never? Give up on the souls I could reach? Never! No one is going to knock me down from sharing that God loves us perfectly even though we are not perfect. Do you understand He sent His Son to die for us?! Can you even imagine that kind of love. So even though I’m not perfect and I mess up God loves me anyway. And when I mess up I learn and pray for forgiveness and try to do better. Be better tomorrow if I’m given the blessing to do so. Can I ever repay God for all He has done? Unfortunately not. What I can do in my imperfect state is share God’s Word so we can all join together in His Love. We can love and accept one another Are we going to mess up? Probably. Are we going to hurt one another in actions and words. No doubt. But we have got to keep trying. Keep learning. 

Keep reaching for our Heavenly Father to guide us. 

Don’t give up

Don’t stop

Keep reaching

Keep praying

Keep reading the bible

Keep sharing

Keep encouraging 

Keep loving.  

He never fails

My God never fails me

His Love is always there 

My emotions do fail me

They leave me open and vulnerable to the enemy to attack my life and my relationships 

While emotions are normal part of human life

We must realize behind the scenes there is a spiritual warfare for our soul.  

God is protecting us and the enemy can do nothing to us unless we allow it. 

Feel your emotions but learn to control them

Feel the pain but give it to God

Feel the hurt but allow God to heal

I honestly believe when I am in conflict with others it is not a me Vs them it truly is the enemy trying to ruin these relationships. 

I’m not going to allow it. 

I will fight through. 

God’s Will be done in our lives

The enemy knows God is about to do amazing things in our lives and wants to stop that. 

He uses these emotions of anger, hurt and pride against us

We must stand. We must fight in prayer 

We must dive deep into God’s Word to protect our hearts.  

I will Stand and fight with you 

I will set my intentions to always see you with eyes of love

To always accept you and pray for you. 

The enemy will not win

God has already defeated him

Put on the armor of God and join me in being a Prayer Warrior!
Ephesians 6:10-18

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith,with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
