  • really tough times.   3 years 23 weeks ago

    Hi Amanda;

    I hear the heartache in your request. Financial stress is something most everyone is experiencing right now and it wants to rob us of our peace.

    Do your mother and dad know the LORD?

    4 years ago my husband and I lost our jobs within 2 months of each other. The LORD gave us favor with our mortgage company and we remained in our home almost a year and a half before we had to leave. Times never got better for us with our home. But God had a plan. He told us to just do ministry at a homeless place and we did that. The my husband and I took some time to rest in the winter months after Christmas. In February he flew to Las vegas to spend some time with a sister he did not know well. I remained at home with our dogs. One day my husband called and said: "I think we are supposed to move out here". I laughed because we were fortunate to have 20.00 to our name.. period and the LORD had not said it to me as yet.

    Well, all of the doors began to close on the east coast where we lived.. we prayed and put our house on the market.. and the LORD paid our whole trip out to Las vegas and gave us all we needed to live... BUT.. EVERY week... we are SHORT and we have to LEAN on HIS PROVISION. He makes it come when HE desires from where He desires and we try to follow His lead in all we do. It's pretty amazing.

    Thing is we are just like you.. we have needs.. we have NO assets.. and we just TRUST GOD to take care of us as HE said he would. But we ONLY ask HIM for help.. no one else and we wait in faith and patience. We SWEAT BIG TIME when we first began trusting and learning this.. but now.. we are comfortable in it and peaceful. We DO have what we NEED.

    As far as HEARING from GOD.. yourself.. COMMIT to a quiet time every day. Be faithful. I begin my mornings with singing to the LORD.. because He inhabits our praises.. but GOD is not legalistic.. In fact HE is ALWAYS closer to you than you can imagine.. closer than your next breath. It is our distractions that make him feel far away at times. I Confess whatever I know may be in the way of our fellowship immediately because I always want that 'open door' with the LORD. I sit with the LORD and I wait for HIM. He will come.

    When you first start out.. don't get discouraged. Just Show up.. and soon God will show up and manifest Himself to you. Intimacy with His kids is His heart.. however sometimes.. it takes time to Build any relationship.. but then it's beautiful! He loves you.. and He will be there for you.. just keep seeking Him.. that's HIS promise!!

  • My prayer   3 years 23 weeks ago

    Hi Tina;

    I know this will sound just too simple.. because as human beings we are more like 'human doings' instead.

    I have struggled with many of the same issues you have posted. I wish I could tell you that God came and waved a magic wand and everything was instantly well.. but that is not the case.

    What I will say is this and let it FILL you with Hope:

    On top of my own issues I had terrible debilitating fear and panic.. I asked for prayer from every place, even went to counseling which really helped me a lot. But the KEY was to fall on my knees in my heart of hearts and just POUR OUT ALL of my concerns, fears, hopes and dreams to GOD.

    The reply that I heard over and over again.. was: "Let GO" Psalm 139 and Psalm 127 and Psalm 23.

    The LORD told me that no matter how damaged I was and no matter how much fear I had about repeating the things that happened to me with my own kids that HE would be with me,help me, uphold me and transform me.. HE would BUILD ME and MY LIFE and who I would BECOME IF.. I just simply let HIM.

    Over the years.. God has healed my fear. He healed my thoughts of adultery gradually, He helped my own anger.. and YES.. He let me learn some hard lessons even with my own kids that made me sweat sometimes.. He gave me another verse which I never forgot during these struggles
    "You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping" Psalm 18:36

    Now I am almost 51 and HE helped me MAKE IT. As the Word says: "LINE UPON LINE.. here a little, there a little" He changes us. We will not be magically delivered most times from our History, but He holds us and helps us to change it over time. You and I have NO idea how to change our heal ourselves.. We are HIS workmanship and just CLAY. But GOD will do it in His own time.. enter His rest, be patient with yourself and just FOLLOW HIS LEAD. in time alone with HIM you will know the path. simply trust. HE WILL NOT fail you.. nor your family.<3 Praying for you.

  • Don't lick the Chicken Pox Lolipops!!!!   3 years 23 weeks ago

    A great danger for immunocompromised people working in cargo or living at home which Lolipops posted ...
    Transfer of microbes with carried only cargo without any insulation, a very interesting condition...

    This header of "Don't lick the Chicken Pox Lolipops!!!" was very accurate and meaningful.

  • How Great Is Our World? Chris Tomlin changes the song.   3 years 23 weeks ago

    I love this song! When I went to the Winter Jam, the artists were talking about how many languages the Bible has not been translated into and how starved many people are for the Word of God. This song unites us with others who speak different languages and belong to other cultures through the love we all share for Christ! It's a powerful song, please continue playing it!

  • The Story of Adoption #1   3 years 23 weeks ago

    Carly and John, you have been so inspiring in so many ways! I have known you two for a few years and I remember when life was so much more simplier for you both...but God knew He had wonderful plans for your family. The Souza family is a picture of hope, saving grace, and infinite love. I love you both! Continue to bless others and keep God always the center of your lives.

  • My prayer   3 years 23 weeks ago

    Tina,
    I am lifting you in prayer, my sister in Christ.
    My mother was an abuser too, but through Christian counseling at my church and much prayer, I have become a very good mother to my children. It's possible. God can heal and redeem all situations.
    I will keep you in prayer.

  • really tough times.   3 years 23 weeks ago

    God speaks to us in many ways. We must train ourselves to listen and recognize Him speaking. This isn't always easy in our culture today because of amazing technology we have at our fingertips. But God more often than not speaks in a still small voice. I encourage you to read and study your Bible, because God speaks through His Word more often than anything else.

  • Opening My Heart MORE to God   3 years 23 weeks ago

    In the bible it states, call on the name of the Lord and you shall be saved. If you confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart that Jesus, died and rose again you shall be saved. Our enemy satan uses that line with all Christians, he has used that on me as well. Tell him to back off and praise the man with the scarred hands Jesus Christ. Dear Father in the name Of Jesus, I ask that you comfort my sister and remove all doubt that the enemy is throwing at her. In Jesus Name Amen God Bless

  • Lust   3 years 23 weeks ago

    You sound like your young. We live in a corrupt world. Jesus Christ, will never hate you for lust, in fact He will lead you to a way out. I have had a problem with porn and lust for many years. For about a month i have not seen any porn. I ask God everyday for one more day of victory, and He has granted it. Read your word, and don,t let the enemy feel your mind with lies. Jesus died, and loves you more than you will know. I will be praying for you...God Bless

  • end of time   3 years 23 weeks ago

    My understandings is this No, when the rapture happens, the Christians will not be here, to go through times, that no one has ever been through. You will be with Jesus Christ. Hope you get a good night rest, and praise the man with the scarred hands Jesus Christ. God Bless

  • My prayer   3 years 23 weeks ago

    Dear Tina, I want to say to you that I think you are doing what the Lords wants. You are expressing your concerns. I am not the man God wants me to be either. I am a work in progress also. Tina we all have things in our life that we are ashamed of. I just got out of prison a couple of years ago, It,s a hard road to go. My dad was an abuser. Your aware that your mother was an abuser, that good I believe the Holy Sprit is bringing things to your attention that need fixed. Have you talked to your pastor? That is what they are there for, to pray and show you the God,s way of doing things. Do you have a Godly Christian woman that you can share your feelings and concern with? You need someone, a female that can pray with you, not gossip about it. I am not a counselor, but ask God to show you the way. Change takes time and can be painfull. I will be praying for you and your husband.Dear Father I lift up Tina and her husband. Tina is showing concern about things that you and her need to deal with. I am asking you Lord Jesus, to show Tina the way, if she needs counseling, provide the money to pay for it.
