FOLLOWING GOD AND HIS CALL ON YOUR LIFE!
Separation will oftentimes be part of your development as a Christian. Before you can take on something new, the Lord may ask you to let go of something you already have. Obedience is meant by saying goodbye to relationships and things dear to your heart. A life you’ve known… left behind. Strong faith will enable you to say yes to what the Lord commands.
Moving ahead in the mist of uncertainty can be another aspect of following the Lord. Unwavering trust in your heavenly Father will enable you to answer the Divine call wholeheartedly – even though specific details aren’t given.
Following God requires living by obedient faith. That means: trusting the Holy Spirit to be your guide; when you don’t see how all the pieces fit together (John 16:13-15); believing that God always works for your good and His glory (Romans 8:28); and having a desire to please your Father.
Question: Will you be ready when He calls?

When I take a moment and pause to think about my life, I am overcome with joy and quiet laughter. It’s because of the glory of God being revealed to me each day. His miracles are the sweetest things I’ve ever known. Every time with Jesus. He gives me butterflies.
Acts 2:25-28 King James Version (KJV)
25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
He knows we have little strength.
Revelation 3:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
But He takes care of us!
Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Isaiah 40:31 – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Accepting the free gift of Salvation (which comes through The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of God, and He alone) CHANGES everything! With The Holy Spirit inside of you, a new heart and a new perspective… The Bible, God’s Word, will come to life unlike before you were saved! In Jesus you will find purpose. In Christ there is a peace that surpasses understanding. You are never alone.
Heart surgery was what I needed.
Ezekiel 36:26-27 King James Version (KJV)
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, I encourage you to see Him now because the soul goes on. You were created by Almighty God and will exist forever either way. Jesus is the only way. I pray you will make Him your way today. God bless. ♥
Inner peace. Rest. Healing. Comfort. Restoration. Transformation. All things are possible with God. Jesus can do it for you. This clip is of proof of His love and Power. Amen.
Come to the fountain of Living Water today and never thirst again.
He’s my Answer. He’s the bear-hug I need after a horrible letdown. Though I can’t feel Him against my skin, I feel Him deep inside my soul. It’s a closeness that can’t be described-instead it must be felt first hand.
His love is unending and truly unconditional. He will never leave me or betray me. I am 100% guaranteed that He has my back 24/7 and I can call Him anytime of day or night without disturbing Him. In fact, He delights in hearing from me. He is jealous for me. He loves when I take time out of my day to spend even a few minutes with Him.
Nobody else in this world could ever understand me the way He does. He always knows exactly what I’m thinking and why I do the things I do. Even when I break His heart or fail Him, He loves me still. He is ever forgiving. I can’t count the times I’ve come back running into His arms.
He adores me. He would give His life for me.
In fact…He already did.
I am free from addiction, no longer a slave to it. I am no longer the rejected. My life has purpose and I have a true reason to live. Oh, at what a little faith can do… Only by His Blood was I set free…It all died with Him.
What if you cry out His Name?
I promise He will meet you right where you are.
Then get into a Bible based Church and be water baptized as was Jesus for our example in the Gospel of Matthew.
Jesus is about to come back for His Church any moment now! Repent now! The 7 year Tribulation is about to happen after Jesus comes for His True Church, His Bride. This is why everything is going haywire on the global front with terrorism etc! Good is being called evil and evil is called good.
If you need to talk, I am here for you any time. Message me. God bless you.
I realized that God is more than just to be feared. He truly wants a relationship with ME. He loves ME. He loves YOU. So much that He left Heaven and died on that Cross.
Jesus took the COMPLETE WRATH of God The Father upon Him. The death that I should be dying. The sentence He knew I would be guilty of thousands of years before I was born…He offered Himself up for Me. Even ME.
I just want to completely soak HIM in. I want to walk with Him and talk with Him. I want our relationship to be stronger. I want us to be closer. In fact, I want Him to draw me into the very heart of HIM. I want to be right there. I just want Jesus. He wanted me and had been waiting on me all along. He could see the path I would follow and the many dark detours I would take.
God watched over me when I got sick with a Bipolar Manic episode. I turned away from Him. He knew all of the terrible things I would do, people I would do wrong, and the suffering to come. He NEVER left my side. The verse that says He will Never leave you nor forsake you….I have experienced God in the dark.
We all come to know Lord Jesus in our own ways, on our own unique paths. Each and every one of us has a past. A story. And It matters to Him! Not just because of the wrong and the sin…but because of what JESUS wants to do in your life!!! He is the life-healing glue that put me back in place. He’s my everything. I was His Everything before I was ever even aware of it.
So I know that if my GOD has brought me this far in life, He certainly is NOT going to let me down now.
If you don’t have your own relationship with Jesus right now, today is the day to seek Him. We aren’t promised tomorrow. No one can save you but Jesus. And it is only you that can approach The Savior who awaits you with outstretched arms.
I encourage you to come to the Fountain of Living Water…you will NEVER thirst again…
Seek Jesus today.
Turn away from the sins in your life and leave the old you behind on the Cross, or repent. You are PAID FOR in full! Accept this Salvation today. If you believe that Jesus Christ is the SON of the Living GOD, then the Word of GOD says you must act upon your faith, upon your confession, be baptized, just like Jesus was in the Book of Matthew…down into the water, immersed. Jesus is our example. After we are baptized into the Body of Christ, then we must simply live faithfully the rest of our lives, walking with God.
Acts 2:38 ” Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
Bring your broken heart, bring your disease and sickness, bring your addiction, bring your grieving….bring everything to His feet. Actual HOPE can only be found in Christ. He freed me when I didn’t even know I was in chains…
So today I’m asking Him,
Let me experience you on a whole new level, Father. I’m ready.
Jesus is coming soon for His Bride, are you ready? It’s literally going to be out of this world…
We’re going to a place where we are loved beyond measure with joy unspeakable. No more tears. No more will the people of this world tell us we’re not good enough or pretty enough. We will be changed in the blink of an eye. Our new bodies incorruptible and perfect. Immortal in Paradise.
Scars are gone. No more eating disorders or mental illnesses. No more disease.The paralyzed and amputees will walk and run. Living in perfect peace. No fear.
The deaf will hear the sweetest singing of angels, and the blind will behold the most breathtaking view from Mansions on high. And to be right there with The Almighty, and with our King, Lord Jesus Christ…I cannot imagine how great the comfort and relief.
Things are really shaking and quaking around the world. The final pieces of the last days puzzle are being put into place. Our Earth is about to endure a 7 year Tribulation. Hell on earth. People are protesting so strongly in Baltimore right now. I believe that the Baltimore riots taking place and those now happening in other cities are linked to all of the military activity in this Jade Helm 15 thing. If you haven’t heard, I suggest you look it up. Riots busting out right now nationwide + the Jade Helm/military events going on = no coincidence. A lot of us have been watching what’s going on behind the scenes. It’s about to get pretty crazy. Martial Law…?
So many people are oblivious to the reality that we live in today. This is far from the America I grew up in and knew as a child, and I’m 30 years old!
While the majority of the common people in the world sleep, the powers that be are wide awake.
Now is the time to prepare for the future. Hopefully you will consider Jesus right now if you have not done so already. It can save your life…eternally.
Good morning everyone!
Everyday matters. Everyday is unique.
You woke up today, you can see, you can read.
So consider the good things as you breathe…
Let’s start our week out with some encouraging, inspiring and motivating posters. 🙂

Have a great week my friends!
A thought came to me unexpectedly as I sat in the midst of all my twisted troubles tonight.
Don’t get caught up in all of these things. This is all temporary. Do not be distracted, or be consumed by your emotions. It’s almost reaping time. You’re going home.
The longer time goes on the more I realize that this world is not my home.
Basically this means that I am not settled in here, comfortably embracing it all. Looking forward to what the next ten years hold, the purchase of our new home, or even this spring’s landscaping…I’m just beside myself. I woke up. I chose to take Jesus’ hand and come out of my lukewarm Christian state. So, as I slowly began giving it my all, to apply my faith and walk with Jesus full time…the eyes of my heart were opened. My plans are irrelevant. With eyes wide open, I’m watching for Jesus now.
Regardless of your religious or spiritual stance, have you really taken a look at what’s going on in our world lately? Mainstream media, non-mainstream, magazines…countless sources, but are you getting the news? Even if you are blessed to live in a quiet, little town someplace, there’s so much chaotic activity under the sun right now. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I am a very positive-natured person. I’m not pushing negativity.
All sets of ears hear the news differently. What may be devastating and awful to one set, may still be of dark matters to another, but yet hopeful in signs of deliverance. We’re watching and waiting for Jesus. Keeping up with current world events has made me more aware of the hour I’m living in. The Truth doesn’t appeal to everyone, but it will set you free.
Back to tonight…my weary spirit was collecting anxiety over life-stuff happening in my personal world right now.
The Holy Spirit gently reminded me to not be discouraged or distracted…
I don’t have to sit in my despair anymore. I have a HUGE reason to live. Amen ❤
I was miraculously healed of a strong gambling addiction, God saved my very life in some pretty dangerous Manic states, and I’ve experienced so many great things and dear blessings along the way. He is truly LOVE. Because our Creator is LOVE itself, we are able to love.
Glory to the Lamb of God
God bless everyone tonight!
Are You Ready?
A Prayer Stop poem, author unknown.
Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house,
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care,
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.
The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not one ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap,
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray,
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!
The light of His face made me cover my head,
It was Jesus returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.
In the Book of Life which He held in His hand,
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said “It’s not here” my head hung in shame.
The people whose names had been written with love,
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound,
While all the rest were left standing around.
I fell to my knees, but it was too late,
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.
In the words of this poem the meaning is clear,
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There’s only one life and when comes the last call,
We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!
Please share this poem and may it spread all over the globe!
