Take the test now! Very interesting!
This test is designed to answer 2 questions: Are you a good person according to God’s standards? And if so, are you good enough to go to heaven?
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Cry out in your own words from your heart.
Sitting here alone tonight and it’s almost 2 a.m. There’s so much going on in my life right now, so many things on my mind. I see the whole world gone mad and increasing rapidly day by day. So I guess you could say it’s like this great whirlwind of heartache and chaos from beneath my very own roof extending all throughout this world. Today I took an extra nap. I admit I’ve been feeling defeated with all of these problems and people that I cannot control nor fix. But then it dawned on me tonight…
I’m still in His hands. My God, my Father reminded me of how my 14 year old Chihuahua’s health has perked up and how she has come so far in but a couple of months. It was revealed to me by Him of just how far she had come and how bad her pain was. I recalled crying in my husband’s arms a couple of months ago when it looked like there was no hope at all. My baby was walking around with her tiny frame all contorted and whimpering along. I just knew she’d have to be put to sleep, forever… But we took her to the vet to get checked out. The X-ray showed that her spine was bent in the middle (the arch of her back) and the cartilages between the disks had worn so thin at the top. He didn’t mention putting her to sleep and I held my breath.
That day my husband, my mom and I returned home with some pain medication and antibiotic for her stomach and diarrhea episodes. We’ve went back a time or two for refills on the pain meds. She still requires maintenance but looks normal now. Sort of thin. There are days when she needs her meds…but my oh my, My God breathed on my dog, my baby!!! And some days, she runs like a puppy. I can hardly keep up when I try and meet her at the mailbox! I know she is still elderly at 14 yrs old. If the Rapture of The Church doesn’t happen first, I will experience her loss. But not like I would have. I truly believe she will be in Heaven forever with me.
I now see that I have taken this all for granted. This MIRACLE! Of course The Lord knew all about our special bond and how she’s been there all along. Since before my Bipolar diagnosis and through the loss of my dad she has always been there. Sitting here tonight in the quiet gave me the ability to really think. The Lord reminded me that if He could do such a great thing for my tiny dog, Little Bit, how much more great things could He do in the rest of my life. I was discounting Him. The Creator of The Universe. I am learning to walk by faith and not by sight. All for His glory. God is love itself. God is compassion. All good things come from above.
I am so grateful for the hundreds of people that cared enough to respond in prayer during that time for me. PRAYER is so powerful. It is so important. It’s so awesome that The Lord has brought me into networks with all sorts of Brothers & Sisters in Christ. In these dark times we really need one another to keep that fire going. I just wanted to share this with everyone in hope that it blesses you and may bring encouragement to a hurting soul.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, He is only a prayer away! Find love beyond measure, peace that surpasses understanding, and the comfort of The Holy Spirit today! Don’t put it off. We never know what day may be our last.
Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Romans 10:9-13 King James Version (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God bless ♥ † ♥
Are you tired of the same old thing? Are you frustrated with your relationships, your job (or lack of)? Are you depressed and living in despair? All is bleak, you’re broken and worn. Can’t take it anymore… What’s the point of it all?
The world is hurting right now. So many people are currently facing these dead-end type of situations and obstacles in their lives. More people than you can imagine are at their wits end right now. These problems are just monumental! They are like giant walls. We cannot get around nor climb over.
It’s no coincidence. Everything has gone haywire, but the world is too busy and spinning so fast that nobody can see what’s happening before their very eyes and in their very lives. And face it. We are distracted on every side with the smart phones, tablets, all sorts of electronic gadgets. Social Media..keeping up with everyone…spending lots of time online…movies, T.V. and all…
The point is that most people don’t want to deal with it. The truth isn’t always friendly. We don’t like being told we’re wrong-at least I know I don’t. But I was wrong about it all. Then I woke up to reality and saw the world for what it really is. And what a rude awakening is was when I realized how deep the pit was. The rut that I found myself in. I couldn’t cut it with today’s world and I was self medicating.
Making changes in our lives is quite uncomfortable. But one day I answered the door when The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of The Living God Jehovah (The God of The Bible) came knocking. I could have ignored Him as many times before, but He came to me at a time when I just couldn’t make it anymore. I couldn’t do this thing called life. He set me free from the bondage of sin. The old me is gone forever and I’m forgiven, reconciled to God by the Blood our Lord Jesus shed on The Cross. He saved a wretch like me. If I can trust Jesus to get me out of the pit, you can too. It’s more than a decision. It’s a new way of life!
We come to God just as we are with our dirtiness and brokenness and open wounds. Then God makes us clean, BRAND NEW through Jesus Christ! You don’t come to God perfect. He accepts us as we are and erases the past!
Things are growing darker in this world today-and if you seek to know God through His Son Jesus, you will be able to see with spiritual eyes for yourself. Friend, things are only going to get worse and coming to Christ, belonging to God is the only way out. Jesus is going to come and take those that are His away from the looming 7 year Tribulation written of in the Bible, The Word of God. The New World Order is complete but cannot be implemented until The true followers of Christ are taken out of the way. The new one-world government, currency, Mark of The Beast (in the right hand or forehead…see Revelation Chapter 13) and revealing of the Antichrist (most likely Barack Obama, see Bible Verses About The Antichrist), Right now it’s considered “not cool” to stand for God through Jesus Christ, the ONLY WAY to God, unlike what Oprah and many other deceivers are teaching. It is considered hate speech to stand for an absolute right and believe in an absolute wrong. Nobody wants to offend anyone…
The Time is NOW. We aren’t guaranteed another breath. Choose Jesus and eternity in Heaven this moment BEFORE The Rapture!
Those who are left behind after the Rapture of the Church (When we are caught up with Jesus) will be faced with an excruciating choice—accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the Antichrist and his followers. But those who come to Christ during this time, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8), will choose to endure, even to martyrdom.
Remember a decade or so ago when the world was introduced to The Secret? Of course it wasn’t really a secret. The Law of Attraction has been around for a very long time. I believe author Rhonda Byrne just had a new way of presenting it, full of mystery and intrigue. The movie/video was very well done. To have quantum physicists and great philosophers at the same time backing the blowing concept that we can create our own destiny and get what we want…was just awesome. So awesome that in fact,
This book is rated 3.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon and is the #1 Bestseller in the New Thought category.
The description of The Secret book as seen on Amazon:
Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.
In this book, you’ll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life — money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You’ll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that’s within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.
The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers — men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.
In the same category on Amazon is the book:
Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams: The Epic Guide To Unlimited Power
A portion of its Amazon description: “This is one of the most powerful books you shall ever read. With research from quantum physics, psychology, biology and behavioral epigenetics, as well as many great spiritual teachings, ‘Moving Through Parallel Worlds’ will guide you on a path to achieving your grandest ambitions. The title, ‘Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams,’ is literal – based on the ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics,’ and it is also a metaphor suggesting positive life transformation. This very night, you shall be reading and then applying the concepts in this book, and that moment will be the starting point of your mastery of wealth, romance, creation, and mastery of all things in the physical world.”
I picked this title out randomly to share alongside The Secret. The 2 books are similar, so they’re in the same category.
When The Secret made its debut around a decade ago, I was in college. Impressionable, eager to find love, success and all of the worldly possessions a woman could want. I had just broken up with my boyfriend and longest relationship, so my ears were itching for something like this. The idea that I could manipulate my life and control my personal success and HAPPINESS…was thrilling. I read the book, bought the DVD, made the ‘Vision Board’ the whole 9 yards. I was certain I could have anything I wanted at all because I was in the know! I had found the secret!
So… Why am I sharing this post?
I’m sharing the truth. Truth is…there is NO secret. Perhaps some of the things within the book are true, but certainly not as a whole.
I have grown and changed tremendously as an individual these past ten years. Hindsight is 20/20. Now I see that I clearly took the bait. This whole secret thing is not from God, nor does it have anything to do with Him. The word “god” is a broad term in today’s world. This way anything goes and everyone gets what they want. In the case of The Secret, perhaps I should say, the Universe…
This book says there are no rules according to the universe .. you provide the feelings of having it now and the universe will respond…if you turn it over to the universe, you will be surprised and dazzled by what is delivered .. this is where magic and miracles happen…Create a Vision Board .. pictures of what you want to attract .. every day look at it and get into the feeling state of already having acquired these wants.
This book is not for Christians. It’s the New Age movement…the lie from the pits of Hell and the devil himself (like in the Garden of Eden) that we can be like God or as gods. We cannot have any other “gods”…I just thought I’d put this out there.
God bless everyone, and as Jesus said, “Be not deceived.”
Jesus Christ is the one and only way to God the Father and to Heaven. In fact, He’s coming soon. Bible prophecy is falling off the pages going full speed ahead. Most are asleep to what’s really going on. The One World Government/New World Order is ready to go, just not implemented yet. Ever wonder why those jets are spraying chemicals way up high in the sky on fair, sunny days? Everything we know now must be brought down for the powers that be to have their way with a one world currency etc. Economic collapse is inevitable. If you are left behind or reading this after millions of people have disappeared, Don’t take the chip!!! The Mark of the Beast (looks like it may be the RFID implant under the skin) which will be put in the right hand or the forehead, will make you hell bound. Even if you have it removed. Read Revelation Chapter 13 in the Bible. You will read about the Antichrist and False Prophet. I encourage you to seek out the King James Bible. If you don’t have one, you can read it online at any of these links.
If you do not have The Holy Spirit of God living inside of you, you cannot understand it nor be saved. The way to get the Holy Spirit and to be saved is through Jesus Christ The Son of God:
Check out what’s going on in the world from a prophetic viewpoint at:
Seek Jesus today. No one is promised another breath at any moment. And it’s about to really become a nasty nightmare down here on earth. Jesus is coming for those that are His, for The Tribulation is about to begin any moment now. The Son of God will be returning for the faithful One’s that belong to Him as His Church is not appointed to Wrath. Please look into things for yourself today. I pray you will.

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!
A great read to start the day, my friends!

“I am the door, if anyone enters through me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” John 10:9
Many Christians I know are frazzled. They work hard to serve God in tangible ways, and yet time for prayer and rest is brushed aside for modern day guarantees of fulfillment. Idle time is wasted on empty entertainment or scanning phones, having jostled and interrupted conversations with others doing the same.
Jesus invited us to set that all aside for true fulfillment when He said, “I am the door.” Only in Him do we, as weary travelers, finally arrive at a secure destination where we can be nourished.
In today’s passage, God is calling us to the rest that becomes ours by crossing through Christ, the door. We are like sheep that wander. When we ignore God’s door, we come back starved, misled, dirty, or at the very least worn out.
However, when we pay close attention to today’s verse, we see that only back-and-forth, day-to-day fellowship with God will provide us with pasture or food, not only for our bodies, but also for our souls.
No matter how many wonderful things you accomplish each day, no matter how many people you influence, don’t forget to get your nourishment from God so you can continue to please Him as well as to stay balanced. The Door is open and those who enter will indeed reap a healthy reward.
Dear Lord, I pray that You would help me to set aside every encumbrance so I can focus on having time with You. I pray that You would hear the cries of my heart, would recognize my passions, and would turn me in the right direction so I can find true fulfillment for the journey. Thank You for the sweet pasture I find in Your presence. The gifts in my life are plentiful, and I attribute them all to You; they are all for Your glory. Amen.
Thought: We can be at home with Jesus every single day. All we have to do is knock on the door—Him. Don’t’ just knock once today. Knock throughout your day. Draw strength and nourishment from your Savior.
Try spiritual breathing. It’s a great way to keep you knocking.
I made a mistake tonight, nothing huge, but it really hurt. What I did really stole my joy within a couple of moments thereafter. And then it hit me. I had a very inspiring thought which was obviously from the Holy Spirit within me… I questioned my pain, unlike ever in my existence. I rationalized in Spirit that the hurt I was experiencing was nothing. Maybe some years back I would’ve remained devastated for a very long period of time, replaying it all in my mind. Not now. For it is now that I have an understanding that there is far more than this. The pain endured in this world while we are alive for an uncertain amount of years cannot be compared to the Glory that is to be revealed to us later. At this point in my life I’m able to let go of my mistakes more easily and sometimes more quickly. I see the suffering in the world. The depression, panic, anxieties, poverty, wars, persecution, evil…I wouldn’t trade this acquired wisdom for anything. Oh, how the world needs more love. More compassion and patience.
This past year, I have become so very much closer to my Maker, God Almighty, my first Love. This faith explosion in the deepest parts of my heart, in all of my innermost being has really changed my life. If you’re wondering how this happened, it all began in July 2014 when I went shopping for clothes. I found a few beautiful pieces on sale in a very popular clothing store, known for its quality and great deals. Anyway, after I’d been home for while, I realized that at the particular time I was living in, I didn’t need all 3. I felt like I could’ve used my money in a better way. My husband drove me back to the store, I ran inside and got a refund on 2 of the 3 pieces. It was difficult to let these go (especially because of the difficulty to find such great clothing actually in store and not online in a plus size.)
My husband suggested we go someplace different. We wound up at this huge retail park behind the city mall. I had no clue where to go until he was like “Why don’t you go into that Christian bookstore?” A light came on inside and the idea was very exciting. So I went in. I came out with a Bible study workbook for women called Stuck, by Christian author Jennie Allen. It was the cover that sold me, and I was truly stuck at the time. It was the first actual way that I ever sought to study the Bible for myself, alone, outside of Church. Oh boy, this Study-book was the beginning of great things!
I began diving deeper into God’s Word. When I would share Scripture online on those cute, motivational posters, the times I looked things up that referenced to various verses & parts of the Bible, I looked for myself to verify it.
Following the birth of my first real journey in the Word, was the adding of more Christian songs to my Spotify playlists. I discovered all sorts of new music by artists I’d never heard of. God literally put a new song in my heart. Free-falling into a full-time Christian lifestyle was a gradual process. We are on this journey and forever growing closer to Him and learning. My hope, my faith, my determination…Everything grew.
I set out to create a post to encourage others tonight because the world is hurting right now. We are all dealing with something…I see the search engine terms on my blog stats. Many people are searching with the word depression. I want you to know that I, and billions of others are suffering with you tonight. I hope these posters that I gathered online will offer some encouragement tonight.
God bless you, precious ones.
Game vs. Journey
According to Webster, a game is a physical or mental activity or contest that has rules and that people do for pleasure.
According to Webster, a journey is an act of traveling from one place to another.
- It is truth that life is a journey, not a game.
- Life in this realm is a one time shot. There are no extra lives or bonuses. Game Over is permanent.
- Like in games, you can quit…but the consequences are not worth it… After all, you cannot see for yourself waiting for what’s around the corner. I know first hand how major depression & Bipolar depression can darken our minds to such a degree where hope seems dead. Truth is, it’s not. No matter what somebody did to you, said to you, or who it was…you were made for more.
- We all know that in games there are winners, and there are losers.
- You only lose if you accept defeat. It is really & truly possible to rise above your past, overcome your deepest pain or great obstacles, if you desire…with all of your heart. The path has been laid before you.
Where are you going?
Jesus heals all the brokenness inside. Check out my story.
Peace, healing, deliverance, and Salvation are free…in Jesus Christ, The Son of God. The only way to God, The Father. You don’t have to be perfect to come to Him. We come to Him and He cleans us up. Empty is made whole in Jesus.
