Faith is the Substance of Things Hoped for. The Evidence of Things Unseen.

Image
I have a testimony of faith, of standing in believing what God has told me, what He has promised me. I am so surprised by the amount of every day people that I know that do not have that kind of mainstay type of faith. They can't see beyond the things that cannot be seen. They only see and hear in what they see in the here and now. Its so disappointing to see them cower to giving in and giving up. I pray that they have their moment of awakening and they will be thankful once they do. Of course we each one get discouraged from time to time, sometimes even in moments of each day. Sometimes it is a matter of learning how to discipline our emotions and sometimes we simply need others around us that hold us accountable to continue to fight the good fight against feeling discouraged, doing things that help keep us uplifted. Other times we just need to be in the fellowship of our family and friends. I believe we are about to step over that thereshold into a time where we will not o

Selfishness to Selflessness. What does that Mean? Especially in Marriage.

Many people look back at their twenties and realize just how young they truly were. Thats the funny thing about getting older,…the realizations of how far we have come. Some people will share how they were only say 19 or 21 when they got married. But I was a kid when I said I do. And a year later I became a mother. I was 16. I had a lot in front of me. At 19 I panicked realizing that I had always been somebody’s somebody. Somebody’s daughter, sister, wife and mother. Who was I? I had not even held a job. So I got one. No matter the things I or we went through or what things looked like, one thing remained true, I loved my man. He was my anchor. When I was 23 Even though I have known God all my life and was raised up in the church I truly fell to my knees to Christ Jesus. I surrendered my life to His Will. This is when I died to self. And it is from this point is when our marriage truly went from two people to living in the oneness of God. You can read more about our story but

God will still have His Way

When I am feeling discouraged I try to surround myself with Godly people and influence. Somedays I just consume myself in it and I praise, worship and pray. I tune out main stream media and I tune into Christian networks. Faith takes action and so it is work. The reason the evil was at work to stop the momentum of the election and brought things to a stand still was because it came to steal, kill and destroy the power of our faith which it fears. So we have to work extra hard and encourage one another to build up our faith and steam roll ahead. We are waging war. The darkness must be brought to light to be exposed and because we hate evil it is never comfortable even for the doers of good. I am standing in faith that God will finish the work He has begun in our country and in our president who has been prophesied by many prophets to be re-elected. Hang on everyone, its coming! Keep fighting the good fight of faith. Faith is saying that I take Him at His Word. I trust Him, and so

Your words can change the world

I'm speaking to you, yes, you: I challenge you to get out of your comfort zone. As for me I want to do something so big it's destine to fail without You Lord, something so great it's gonna take a miracle to do. How about you? I want to be like Peter who walked on water! I hear God saying "Diana, get out of the boat!" For me my faith is all or nothing! By believing I have nothing to loose so I am all in. Our Lord tells us that "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21. Which words will you chose? The positive words of life or the negative words of death? Those negative words are the ones that steal, kill and destroy life. The power of your life is in your words, so speak them well and give life by speaking them well of others too. Be an encourager. Be a life giver. Be a game changer. Think about those things and let it inspire you. You matter and you can make all the difference in how yo

America is important to God. Israel gave us Jesus, but this is His Land and this is why

This year has been a difficult one for all of us and really an ugly year to so many. We've lost a lot. And here in the midst of the political environment some people are saying we Christians shouldn't be talking about such things. But something I want to bring to your attention is this: America is important to God. This is His land. Israel gave us Jesus, but our founding fathers were very specific when they sought out and stepped foot on this land and dedicated this country to Him. This is the very reason they came in search of this Amercia. This is why so many of us remain standing on those promises made to God and His promises to us. Think about that as you pray and feel that hope rise up in you. God never forgets and neither should we. Our words have power, power of life and death, positive and negative (Proverbs 18:21). Convanants and committments have always held great meaning to God. He never changes nor goes back on His Word. He keeps His promises and committments. H

Side Roads in Life can Have Plenty of Site Seeing Lessons

No one can say that this year has been their best. It seems if you begin to describe your tough year you feel this rising up in yourself realizing you are preaching to the choir because no one has had an easy year. As I have attempted to move forward in my life with many plans this year hasn't been easy by any means. But I realize that as much as we want to move on with our lives into new adventures and opportunities after we have decided to recover from setbacks, God still has some unexpected plans for us. He may call us to do some other things. We don't realize this and often we mistaken those times as distractions that are causing us to fail Him or Satan attacking us to keep us off the course we know we need to travel. We look at these things as getting in our way, but that isn't always the case. If we answer God's call we will once again find ourselves back on our path we had been traveling as well, but there will always be some side roads God wants us to take

Prepare to Show the World Who You Are

I work in a truck shop. Most recently I must admit I kinda feel a little bit like Amy a manager on the show "Super Store" who each day wears a name tag other than her true name. Going on my third year in my job I decide I need FRC's because I am working more in the shop and I have always went out into the field. My shirts will soon be in with my real name on them, but for now, it's kinda fun being Henri and I think it's been fun for the guys to call out for Henri because it always brings a smile to their faces. Even  my Boss Man (husband) has been amazed and has enjoyed my courage and strength to step up. He's been awesome to encourage and compliment me daily about how proud he is of me. The downturn off the oilfield hit us pretty hard and even after those hits I was laid off 6 months of 2016. It broke my heart, for it wasn't just my job that was gone it was the lifestyle of waking up each day and sharing my complete day alongside my husband
