God Gave Me the Holy Spirit

Image
I wrote a year ago and I wanted to share it with you on this blog:  I am thankful for a lot of things in this day especially after spending a wonderful evening with the Lord last night. You know how we have often times wanted to be given a sign from God? Well, once upon a time several years ago God gave me a Dove. I have had birds before and I wasn't really wanting another. But at work one was sitting across the yard on the tail gate of our pickup. Hudg picked it up and put it in the bed of the truck and drove across the yard and into the shop. He told me to come see it. It let us pet it and feed it out of our hands and later it flew up to the top of the shop where we assumed it would stay until it flew out. The next day before quitting time Hudg said that I needed to come see my bird, it was still there and now sitting on the hose reel. Again it let us touch it and feed it. Well, that was it. I felt it was just too tame and friendly that I couldn't let it be so vulnerable to s

This pandemic has stolen so much from us and I believe that not everyone understands the extent of such losses. This isolation and mandates of pressuring us to do things that are not normal and not even healthy disrupts our routine of life. Routines are important. Not seeing smiles and even seeing people speak. It has been a long overdue season of mourning.  We have lost jobs, loved ones, lifestyles, many relationships and marriages have been damaged and destroyed. It has divided a world in beliefs. And then to see how this year is going just adds even more stress. No one has not in some way been affected. I admit to you it has been the most difficult year of my life. I did't loose anyone to COVID but I had several people most especially my father passed away in this year. I lost my job, I lost my daily routine of my lifestyle and we have lost 40% of our income. I found myself very isolated, lonely and depressed. A strong person I am but this has been hard.  Hard times have fell up

The battle belongs to the Lord. The victory is ours!

On my darkest days, when I feel inadequate, unloved and unworthy, I remember Whose daughter I am and I straighten my crown.  Lord, let me bring honor to Your Name. Wake up the sleeping giant of this nation. I am intoxicated in Your Great Love. My Lord, my savior, I am overwhelmed with Your hope and by Your presence. I am thankful that I am here for such a time as this. Unleash Your angelic host. We're about to experience the most awesome powerful warfare. You are the righteous God. I am picking up my shield and I will be loosed of the lies that held me down. I am putting on the battle shoes to march with the army of the Lord. I am picking up my helmet and putting it back on and believing that I am who God says I am. I am overwhelmed by the presence of God. I feel and I hear His voice. I can hear the terrifying roar of the lion of Judah tribe. The one that is the name above all names, that is seated on the throne. I can literally hear the urgency of the hour that we live in. All the

When there is something you really want, fight for it.

While some people know how to press on and get what they want out of life, many people don't try hard enough for anything. If it takes much effort they simply give up or they discount any warrior skills they could possibly develop. They don't know what it is like to go to war for anything. It often times takes blood, sweat and tears. If you really want something you have to work at it and for it. That is how I was taught. You have heard the saying "Anything worth having is worth working for." "Nothing comes easy." But truly if the "going gets tough, people these days seem to give up." Here are a few of my biggest examples in my life. My husband and I were married when we were 16 and 22. We were separated twice in our first 7 years of marriage. When I fell to my knees and gave all I had to Jesus Christ at 23 years old our lives changed forever. I stood in faith and I was not willing to give my children's lives up to another statistic of d

I have shared on this page our on marriage story pouring out my heart and becoming vulnerable to all in order to help others understand that yes your marriage can be healed. I know so many think its over, but Jesus can and will heal anything, but you must ask. I found helpful site that is so very good, loaded with great insight, powerful hope and awesome Godly information. Please come and check it out. It will open your eyes to things you may not even be thinking about even if you have a good marriage, a hurting one, or one headed for an end. It never is too late. Its worth your time to read. Its worth getting your hopes up. The main thing that kept me hoping and believing was that I didn't want our children to be another statistic of divorce. They never asked to be born and have to live in a broken family. I wanted more for them. I wanted more for ourselves. I got so much more than I could have ever hoped for because Jesus was involved.

Lent and Sacrifice; What is in it for You? Just How Strong are You?

Image
For those who truly know me you know Lent matters to me. I am not catholic but I have always felt that if God could give His only son for me then there is always something I can sacrifice for Him. In order for it to be a sacrifice it has to really mean something to me. So Ash Wednesday is the start date and that is the 17th of February. I ask that you begin today thinking of what you can either give up and take on to do that would really mean something for God in your life. My first Lent that I observed was 11 years ago. I gave up my Diet Coke which I was addicted too, drinking nearly three liters a day. I had given up my number one beverage before, but this time I gave it to God and I attribute very little withdrawls this last time to that very fact it was now God's. And after about 18 days into this 40 days I realized if I could go without it for that long I could go without it forever. I haven't had a drop since because honestly I didn't need something to control me a

It's Time to Question Your World and Rise up and Roar!

Would you rather wake up on your own or have someone wake you? Have you ever been sedated? And why would a person/people need to be sedated? What are you able to do when you are sedated? Can you think for yourself? I know sheep would rather you tell them what to do and where to go, but not I. How about you? Or are you too busy counting those sheep to pay attention to what is really happening? Why would anyone want to take down and block information and keep you from forming your own opinion? Unless of course, they are hiding the truth and at all costs they can't be exposed. Possibly could it be that they don't want you to have a belief or an opinion and they maybe hiding a whole lot from you, no matter their cost or reputable business reputation? Could it be that they are not whom you thought they were? Couldn't things have changed over time from what you felt you used to know? How do you continue to put your trust in that if you never question it? Because you realize
