My First Ride in An Ambulance!

I went to bed early Friday night with a sinus infection. Breathing troubles and sore throats from sinus drainage are no fun as most of you know I’m sure. I tossed and turned with a few minutes sleep here or there. At 3 a.m. I opened my eyes and rose to go to the bathroom and just 3 short feet away from the bed the terrifying reality hit me that I could not breathe AT ALL! My windpipe was completely shut off in my throat. I got to the living room as quick as I could where my husband was awake still on the computer playing a game. He saw panic and the tears rolling down my face and when I showed him by motioning with my hands that I couldn’t breathe. He called 911 and they were there in minutes to put me on a stretcher, getting me into the ambulance for vitals and a breathing treatment.

From the moment I knew I was not going to be able to breathe on my own, I immediately began praying inside from the heart. No one could hear me, but my God and Lord Jesus Christ could. I repented for all of my sins known and unknown and I prayed for my family. I’ve never experienced anything like it. God was amazing and He brought Bible Verses to mind. In my head I repeated this favorite:

2 Timothy 1:12  (KJV)

12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Up until yesterday morning at 3 a.m. I’d never had a near death experience. It’s different for everyone I guess, I mean I wasn’t hanging on the edge of a cliff or doing flips on a motorcycle, but death was right there just the same ready to take me out. But you know what? My GOD was and is BIGGER. This incident has changed my life for the better. The ONE Who gives us the breath of life when we enter the womb is the same one who chooses when to take it. I am so glad that my hands are in The Hands of GOD, not only GOD, but my FATHER. Jesus Christ paid for me with His Precious BLOOD on The CROSS and now as a born again Christian, I am an heir and a co-heir with Christ. I am a Daughter of God, I belong to Him. Therefore, anything coming against me must first go through Him-it has to get past the Blood of JESUS. This is the protection of The Believer. God’s will shall be done, but there’s no rest or true safety outside the Shadow of The Almighty. The Amplified version puts it like this:

Psalm 91

He who [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].


Later on yesterday after getting home from the ER, sitting at my desk, The LORD brought back an old song from many years.

“Sick and Tired of this world
There’s no more air
Trippin’ over myself
Goin’ nowhere
Waiting
Suffocating
No direction
And I took a dive
And on the way down
I saw you
And you saved me
From myself
And I won’t forget
The way you loved me
On the way down
I almost fell right through
But I held onto you.”

“On The Way Down” by Ryan Cabrera
(Actually God held onto me!!! Thank YOU JESUS!)
God used this song from an earlier time of hardship in my life to remind me today of how much He has brought me through and how He’s The only Reason I’m still alive. I could have died this morning when my breathing was shut off inside, but He has other plans and His Mercy and Grace are so mind blowing! Jesus loves us so much. The world and the enemy send the message of condemnation, but if we take the time to read or hear The Bible, The WORD of God, we will see we are THE JOY that was set before Jesus going to the Cross!

Hebrews 12:2 (KJV)
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

GOD loves us all so very much that He gave His only Begotten Son The Lord Jesus…(John 3:16)
JESUS LOVES YOU! †

To GOD be THE GLORY!

NEVER BEEN ALIVE

When you ask The Lord Jesus Christ into your heart to become your Savior and Lord of your life, something amazing happens! Almighty God puts His Holy Spirit inside of you to live with you forever and never leave you nor forsake you, to help you in all matters until you meet with Jesus in Heaven or in the soon coming rapture of the Church.

THE HOLY SPIRIT, LIFE ITSELF  is placed inside of your earthly being!!!!!! You are then what the Bible calls quickened, or:

Primarily, to make alive; to vivify; to revive or resuscitate, as from death or an inanimate state. To make alive in a spiritual sense; to communicate a principle of grace to. To revive; to cheer; to reinvigorate; to refresh by new supplies of comfort or grace. To become alive.

Accept this beautiful, live changing, prison shaking gift today! Find rest for your soul in JESUS CHRIST alone! Nothing can or will ever satisfy you like Jesus Christ The Son of The Living God. Trust me, I know…

Don’t be left behind for the 7 years of hell on the earth about to break out any moment now when what is called the rapture of the Church happens. This is called The Tribulation period or time of Jacob’s Trouble and it is where God returns His attention to Israel. The Jewish people were blinded for the rest of our sake (The Gentiles) so we could be saved as well by The Blood of Jesus in His death on the Cross and resurrection on the third day. If They knew Jesus was The Messiah they would not have crucified Him.

Whoever else that does not believe in JESUS CHRIST and belongs to God, indwelt by The Holy Spirit, will be left behind for this nightmare. So many people are going to be left behind. PLEASE don’t be one of them!!!! Most will perish, and if they die in their sins unready to meet God being covered by The Blood of JESUS, they will surely go to hell forever. This is a hard message, but I want to tell you the truth and maybe offend you to help save you from FOREVER in the lake of FIRE! Eternity in Heaven is going to be AMAZING!!! DO NOT PUT IT OFF! Cry out to JESUS TODAY!!!

Above is just an example of a prayer you could pray to God to ask JESUS to be your Savior and save you from being FOREVER in HELL and also the 7 year Tribulation about to come on the whole earth. Just cry out from the heart and you have to really mean it! This is NOT a 1, 2, 3 believe after me kinda thing!!! IT IS A LIFESTYLE! SO, FOLLOW JESUS NO MATTER WHAT!!!

GOD BLESS YOU, PRECIOUS ONE! ♥

 

Are You Feeling Empty?

Are you feeling empty? People walk around looking for purpose as lost as can be. JESUS CHRIST is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no man can come to The Father but by Him! Jesus is THE PURPOSE! Jesus IS THE REASON your heart is beating. God has a plan for your life! No matter what you’re going through, today’s a new day. Let this be your new beginning. †

Don’t Pass This Up!

Hebrews 3:12-19  (KJV)

12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Are You Fed Up?

Are you fed up and tired cuz you just can’t seem to get it all right?
Well, hey…That’s alright, because HE DOES!!!

Ezekiel 36:26-27 (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.

Just ask in The Mighty Name of Jesus! †

What Love Feels Like

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.

 If life is too much and you can’t go on…Call upon the name of JESUS tonight in prayer! This is more than a single prayer. This is the beginning of a new walk and way of life. A walk with Jesus as your life’s focal point. You will find peace and healing, hope and forgiveness.

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.

 

 

Looking For Answers

When nobody understands.

Feeling invisible, broken & used up…

Everyone matters.

The world wants to hide the truth and shut it down, pointing everyone’s eyes in another direction. Distractions. Spouting half-truths. Things that are believable but yet lies.

Its slandering Christians, people who follow Jesus or God, and the Bible.

If people could truly see the lies with an awakening inside…to see this deception for what it really is…

They would realize that no matter what, you can still come home to your Heavenly Father, God-Who in this moment, is waiting with open arms. God in Heaven is not just God. He’s a Father to the fatherless. The love you never had. A love like you’ve never ever felt before, contentment & peace that won’t come from anything else. You see everyone matters. No matter what you’re crawling through, no matter how heavy the load…relief, freedom, Love, and Eternal Life can still be yours. All things are possible with God. So many people or families are going through horrible situations in these perilous times we’re living in. No matter how diverse the chaos, the solution is the same. And that’s Jesus.

All addictions are/can be conquered and wiped out with God. The power is amazing. You can’t change the past, but the past does not define you. When you choose Jesus and decide to follow Him, upon your confession that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, you die in the water of Baptism. You arise a brand new creature in Christ, like in His Resurrection. Your name is now added to the Lamb’s Book of Life. This means, it is actually written in Heaven Whom you belong to! You’re His…and given guardian angels to look out for you along your new walk with Jesus, they go before and behind you.

Being Baptized into Christ and living as a Christian is the only way to Heaven, Eternal life. It doesn’t stop at getting Saved & becoming a Christian. Because we are still living in the flesh down here on earth, we will still mess up or sin, even after giving our lives to Jesus. But that’s why His Blood was shed on the Cross. We’re covered eternally, but when we fall, we pray for forgiveness. Realizing what the sin or sins were, we repent or turn away from the sin asking for forgiveness before our Father in prayer, in the name of Jesus. After the Baptism, we must still do our best to live faithfully for God the rest of our days. We are not saved by what we do, but by His Grace, the debt paid by our Lord Jesus on the Cross.

Everyone matters.

The One Thing We Can All Have in Common

Tracie Miles By TRACIE MILES

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)

As I read her email, my heart felt heavy. She had endured so much pain in her life, none of which she deserved or caused.

Then I read another email. And this person’s story was completely different, yet the pain and heartache of her life seemed unfair, too, and more than one person should have to endure. Then another email. Then another.

Countless emails sat in my inbox — each one saturated with intense emotion and vulnerable honesty. All sharing a different experience and a different level of hurt, shame or regret.

One had been physically abused. One was betrayed. One battled addiction. One divorced. One had been sexually abused. One struggled with fear and anxiety. One had chosen abortion. One had been unfaithful. One had a serious disability.

The list was long, and every one of these women had something in her past that once made her feel insignificant, void of value and unlovable to God. Yet, despite their different experiences, all these women had one amazing thing in common, which stood out loud and clear.

You see, each one had allowed God to transform her pain into purpose, and as a result, their lives now shine as a living testament to the power of a Holy God. Each one had watched God turn something difficult into something that would glorify Him.

Romans 8:1-2 says, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death” (NIV). This verse reminds us that no matter what has happened in our lives, or what we have or have not done, God loves and values us unconditionally.

Later in that same chapter, in today’s key verse, we read God not only loves us, but has a plan and a purpose for our lives — not despite our past, but because of it.

Paul experienced pain and suffering through various forms of persecution: imprisonment, beatings and rejection. He spoke from the wisdom of his own experiences and exemplified the transforming power of God’s ability to turn any mess into a message.

Paul encouraged believers to embrace God’s promise that He can use all things for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose, not only for God’s good, but also our own.

Regardless of how difficult our pasts are, as children of God we have a commonality in Christ Jesus our Savior: God will use for good what the devil intended for evil. When we allow God to use our pain for a purpose that glorifies Him and ministers to others, we enjoy the blessing of spiritual healing and transformation like never before.

No matter how different our prior experiences, we can still have one precious thing in common. We can each choose to live as proof of the power of Jesus to change a life. All things truly can be used for the good of those called by Him.

Lord, I’ve always felt I couldn’t be fully loved or forgiven because of my past and that maybe You had no purpose for me. Help me embrace the promise of Romans 8:28 — of Your love and plans for my life. Help me discover the amazing purpose You’ve ordained just for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
Genesis 50:20, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” (NLT)

Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (NIV)
