Fear Not

Isaiah 43:1-2

But now thus saith the
LORD that created thee,
O Jacob, and he that formed thee,
O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name;
thou art mine.

When thou passest through the waters,
I will be with thee; and through the rivers,
they shall not overflow thee:
when thou walkest through the fire,
thou shalt not be burned;
neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.


Fear not

My sweet Child,
Don't you yet understand that
I know all about everything that
you are going through?
I love you with an everlasting love.
Your trials come to make you strong.

If you never went hungry,
How could you know that
I am able to feed you?
If you never have a problem,
How would you know that I
am a problem solver?

You must know that everything
that is happening in your
life has been carefully planned by me.

I am not a man that I should lie.
If I say that I will meet all of your needs.
Then you must learn to trust me.

I am here for you,
even in the midst of the storm.
You have no reason to fear.

If I can hold the world in the
palm of my hand.
Don't you think that I am able
to meet all of your needs?

Just trust me and everything
will be alright....

Love Jesus

"Trusting in me"

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine
own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.

My child,
The time is come that you
must learn to trust in me.


When you woke up this morning,
was the sun still shinning?


When you went to bed last night was the
stars and the moon still hanging in the sky?

As you left home this morning
were the flowers still growing
and the bird still singing?


Then why is so hard for you to trust me
to meet all of your needs?


Don't you understand that
I have all power?

So if I have ALL power that what does the eneny have?

Do not listen to his lies for they are just that!


My child, I Love you even more
than you love yourself.


Haven't I told you that I would
never leave, nor will I forsake you?

You tell Satan that I am your God,
and I have it all in control.
You tell him that I will never, ever fail you.

I can't.

It is not in my nature!

I dare you to trust in me.

You will not be dissapointed!

I Love You

Jesus

Come my child...


2nd Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.

Isaiah 1:18
Come now, and let us reason together,
saith the LORD:
though your sins be as scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.


My child,

How I long to spend some time with you.
I know that you are going through the fire.
But did you notice I said going through.


You will get through this trial also.

You will make it to the other side!

But you must spend time with me so that I
can teach you how to defeat the enemy of your soul.


You must spend time in my word.
The enemy has no power over you when you
have my word written upon your heart.


I want you to know just how much I love you.
My love for you is higher than the Heavens,
and deeper than the oceans.

Always remember this:


If you have my word in you,
you will defeat the enemy.
I will help you to fight.


Come and let us reason together.
Let's talk thing over.

Let me show you how to defeat the enemy!

Don't be afraid to trust me.
I will never let you down.

Love Jesus.

_________________________________________

Philippians 4:6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by
prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let
your requests be made known unto God.


"Why worry"

Look all around you?
Do you see the splender of my hand?


Why then must you worry?


Have I ever let you down?


What makes you think that I will start now.


Haven't I clothed the flowers?
Did I not feed the birds of the air?


You must understand that worry is one
of the biggest tricks of the enemy.


If he can cause you to worry,
then the rest is easy for him.

Come to me,
Let me know what is on your heart.

I can't take care of the situation if
you won't give it to me.


That is what I am here for.
You can make things so much easier,
Just by trusting me.

I cannot fail you,
Because I love you.
"Jesus"

"I know that you are hurting"

Isaiah 1:18

Come now, and let us reason together,
saith the LORD:
though your sins be as scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow; though they
be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.


My child,
I know that you have been
going through a lot lately.


Have I not have  promised that I would never leave you comfortless?

You can never go by what you feel!

Every pain that you feel,
I feel it just like you.

 However, I cannot afford to let you
feel only the good in your life.
Then you never come to to me.

I miss my time with you.

I love you so very much.

When it seems that I am not there,

I am teaching you how to trust me.

You must know that I am aware
of everything that is going on in your life.

My sweet child.

I welcome you into my throne room.

It is in this secret place that you will find peace like you have never known.


Come to me.
Lets talk about what is going on in your life,

Never forget that I with Me,

ALL THINGS are possible!


I will be here here waiting for you.

I love you more than life.

That is the very reason that I gave mine.

So that you would know the real meaning of love.

I love you

Jesus

My Word

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but my words shall not pass away.

My Child,
I have come to bring you the
answers to all of your prayers.
I know that you are hurting and
that you are frustrated,
But I am here for you.

Whatever you need can be
found in my Word.


You need but ask.


I love you so much that 
the only way that I would deny you
anything is if I know that
it will be harmful to you.


Your answers can be found in Me.

You will find me,
when you search for me
with all of your heart.


All of your answers
are in my Word.


Please know that I am
only a prayer away.

Love Jesus

Mercy

Lamentations 3:22-25
It is of the LORD's mercies that we
are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul;
therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them
that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.


My child,
I know that you are hurting,
And I know that you may think
that no one understands,
But I do.

You must remember that
everything that you are going through,
I have already gone through.


I need you to trust me.


My mercy is new every morning,
Great is my faithfulness.


Don't you know that by now?

Whatever you need,
You can find it at the foot oof the Cross.


There is healing at the Cross.


There is love at the Cross.


There is peace at the Cross.


There is understanding at the Cross.


Go back my Child, to where we first began.


Remember your first love.
Mercy is my Name,
And I have given myself to you freely.
I love you,
I will Never let you down.

Love Jesus

Faith

Hebrews 11: 6


But without faith it is impossible to please him:
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder of them that
diligently seek him.


My Child,
The time has come that we must
sit down and have a talk.


The enemy is preying on my
children like never before.


Because he knows that his time is winding up.


If you come and talk to me,
and trust in me with all of your heart,
I will show you just how to defeat
the enemy of your soul.


I know that he has come
against you in many ways,
but in order to defeat him,
you must use you faith like never before.


I know that you are having troubles,
But what you are going through is nothing
compared to the soul that is lost.


If you come to me,
I will teach you just how
to use your faith.


Your life is the only Bible
that some will ever read.


Just remember.
If you use your faith to trust in me.
You will win.
Faith is the one weapon that satan cannot defeat.
Always remember, that I am here for you.

"Because I love you"
Jesus

"My Word"

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but my words shall not pass away.


My dear sweet child,
I know that you have been
going through the fire.


You have asked me to solve your
problems for you.


But I have given you the power
to call those things that are not as
though they were.


The answers to all of your problems
and trials can be found in my Word.


There is healing in my Word.


There is Love in my Word.


There is strength in my Word.


There is deliverance in my Word.


There is life in my Word.


There is hope in my Word.


There is salvation in my Word.


When everything else has failed,
My Word will remain.


All of the answers to your prayers
can be found in my Word.

I want to bless you.
But in order for this to happen,
You are going to have to make some sacrifices.


You must spend time with me,
so that I can teach you how to use my Word.


If you will listen to what the Spirit is saying
unto the church especially in these last and evil days,
you will never have to be sorry or ashamed.


When you search for me
with all of your heart, then and only then,
will you find me.

I love you,
Just remember that my child.

Love Jesus

God has wonderful things prepared for your future! Even though you might be facing some circumstances that seem unfair, or things aren’t going the way you planned, God’s good plan still remains. Even when life isn’t fair, God is always fair. He is always working behind the scenes on your behalf to move you forward into the destiny that He has prepared for you.

Remember, in order to keep your life moving in the right direction, you need to keep your thoughts, heart and words moving in the right direction. The best way to do this is by declaring His wonderful deeds! When you start recounting all the ways God has blessed your life, just like the psalmist, you’ll find that His goodness goes beyond what you could ever imagine.

Right now, take a moment and think about all the goodness in your life. Declare His deeds and focus your thoughts on Him. Keep your words and thoughts going in the right direction so you can keep moving forward into the abundant life He has promised you!
 
A Prayer for Today
 
“Father, today I declare Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. Thank You for blessing me beyond my comprehension. You alone are worthy of all the praise, glory and honor. I bless You today and always in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

_______________________________________________________________________________________

When you are down to nothing, that’s when the enemy attacks the hardest. His job is to take your focus off God and direct your focus on the storm. Thus, decreasing your faith and focus on God. His job is to keep you down, out and depressed. No matter what valley you are down in, there is a reason. God prepares you for your purpose through test, trials and training. You may feel like you’re in battle but this season is preparing you for your breakthrough. God’s plans will always be greater and more beautiful than all your disappointments.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

One things for sure. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Don’t just go through the lesson, grow through it. When you are down, you are in the perfect place to kneel and pray. If God is all you have, then you have all you need. God is working in your life in ways you cannot understand.

He just wants you to trust in Him.

Give Him everything that concerns you and watch what happens.
Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others.

I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

_________________________________________________

I know there are times when you feel alone and that you have no one you can talk to. When you feel this way just look up because you have a God who loves you more than anything. Thank Him for never giving up on you and for keeping you together when you are falling apart. At this moment you may not be where you want to be…but you can look back and thank God you’re not where you used to be. Keep your eyes and focus on Him and He will direct your path. Don’t worry about anything instead pray about everything.

______________________________________________________

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, You’ve been so beautiful to me. As this day comes to an end, my heart is overflowing with thanksgiving and praise. To have been given another day of life, another chance to live, laugh and love. What a gift. The closer I get to you, the more I find myself trading worry for wonder, anxiety for anticipation, fear for faith, sorrow for joy, stress for celebration, curses for blessings, ashes for beauty, life for LIVING. What a difference you make in my life. I humbly thank you. Thank you Lord, amen.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

The Devil is busy. Today, don’t let the devil steal your joy. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the Devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against Him, and be strong in your faith.  You have to make up in your heart and mind daily you will not give him room to work. What God has in store for you is greater than what the enemy stole from you. Do not let him steal your joy.
The devil is alive and well. If he isn’t working on you, trust and believe he is in your neighborhood. You can be sure you have a major blessing coming when the devil is fighting you the hardest. He wouldn’t be attacking you if you didn’t have something valuable inside of you. Thieves don’t break into empty houses. He is threatened by your purpose. He targets your mind with lies and deceit to make you ignorant of God’s will. Satan tries in every way to limit your prayers because he knows your prayers will limit him. Don’t let him put a question mark where God has already put an exclamation point and a period.
If you’re going through hell, keep going. With God’s guidance you will make it through. James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.” The Devil had a plot but God has a plan. Wake up daily and serve notice to the Devil…today is not your day, tomorrow isn’t looking good and I’ve already booked my eternity with God. I refuse to let you steal my joy. The next time the Devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.

______________________________________________________

Today is going to be an amazing day, speak it into existence as though it were so. Where you are right now in life’s journey is a divine appointment. God has placed you here for a reason, remember that and He is working everything out. Trust God and believe in good things to come. If God shuts a door stop banging on it. If a door doesn’t open, it’s not your door. We always want to be in control of everything and sometimes we need to sit down somewhere. Yes, have several seats and relax. Be careful about rushing God’s timing. You never know who or what He is protecting you from. Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. W.A.I.T., Watch God work in His timing and ways. Ask God about His purposes. Invite God to work in your heart. Trust God to fulfill His plans. Waiting on God’s timing doesn’t mean you are doing nothing, it means you are trusting His will. Stop worrying! When was the last time God failed you? Name the last time He was too late? Has He ever left you alone? The answer is NEVER! Your Heavenly Father has everything under control. He won’t fail you now, or tomorrow, or next week, or in the years to come. Our faith may be tested so that we may trust His faithfulness. With God there is always a way.

Dear Heavenly Father,
In this time of need, I ask you to strengthen me and give me peace of mind. You are my strength and my shield; you are my refuge, a very present help in trouble. Teach me to trust in you so that when the unexpected storms of life come, I will expect peace in the midst of those storms. Give me strength in my weakness, faith in my fear and power in my powerlessness. We know in our weaknesses your strength is revealed. Please give me the strength to endure this situation, and to find the blessings and lessons that it contains. Please give me the endurance to continue ahead. Guide my thoughts words and actions so that I walk your path of peace and love.

Amen.

_____________________________________________

If you have to force it, leave it. If it doesn’t open it’s not your door. Some doors that God doesn’t open for you is nothing more than divine protection. Don’t just pray that God will open doors, pray that He will close doors that need to be closed in your life. Remember, that God doesn’t close one door without getting ready to open another with bigger and greater things. Make it a priority to make God a priority in your life. God knows where you’re going and what you need when you get there, just put your faith and trust in Him. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I trust in you and I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!

_____________________________________________

In life, the forecast doesn’t always call for clear skies with sunshine.  Some days there will be storms and bad weather. Don’t focus on the storm, focus on the one who can calm it. True faith is keeping your focus on God when the world around you is falling apart. Sometimes the hardest storms to weather are the ones your soul needs most. God will either shield us from it, or take care of us in it. We always want God to hurry and calm the storm, but He wants us to find Him in the midst of it first.

This morning, thank God for another beautiful day. Whenever you don’t understand what is going on in your life, just hold on. God is not trying, God is doing. God is fighting your battles, arranging things in your favor, and making a way even though you can’t see Him working. Hold on and have faith. Your current situation is not your destination. Because with God, just like that everything can change.

_________________________________________________________

I know holding on and waiting is hard. Sometimes it’s in our best interest that we just be still and wait on the Lord. There is no point in traveling when you have no directions, that’s how you get lost. The same is relevant in your walk with God. He will lead and guide you, just hold on. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. You can trust God with your life, after all He did give it to you. Just know God has a plan even when we don’t. Everything that the enemy has stolen, God will give you double for your trouble. Know you’re in good hands. Where God guides, He provides. All you have to do is hold on change is coming.


Tonight as you retire for bed, remember you are enough. You are right where you are meant to be and when it’s time for your divine appointment God has set for you, nothing in the world can keep you from it. Keep watering your own grass in faith and watch what God blooms in your front yard. You are meant to be in this very moment my Loves. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…Great Is In You!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Your Purpose
If you woke up today happy and healthy you’re blessed. As long as you keep waking up in the morning, that’s evidence He is not through with you. You have a purpose. The theme of your life story is the platform God will use to speak through you for His kingdom. Your life has purpose and your story is important. Your dreams count and your voice matters, you were born to make an impact. A life well lived is measured by those moments when you give of yourself, more than you think you can. There are some things that YOU came here to do. That only YOU can do. Don’t let your old story define you. Owning your story and loving yourself through the process is the bravest thing you will ever do.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Be Encouraged
What you have experienced in life does not define you, therefore let it refine you. Don’t keep quiet to assist another’s comfort. You are not the victim rather the victor, don’t be ashamed of your story it will inspire others to heal. It can be a key to unlock someone else’s prison. I have survived things that have killed others therefore my life is a message of hope and encouragement. The past is just a story. Once you realize this, as a result it will have no power over you. Someone may be in need today to hear your testimony to give them courage to leave an abusive relationship, or to help them heal from childhood abuse. Or someone may need to hear your testimony to know it’s time to free themselves from the mental jail they’ve been in. When you are ready to heal God will give you courage to share your story. When your story is heard, how you were able to get past your past, you will help heal others. That is when you will realize your greater purpose.

____________________________________________________________________________________

There is nothing in this world that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts. Speak only when you feel your words are better than your silence. Make sure your mouth matches your mission, don’t speak against your own destiny. Speak what you want brought into existence. Every single time we speak we are prophesying our future. Start calling yourself blessed, favored, loved, happy, enough, whole and prosperous. Change your words to your benefit. Speak blessings over your life. It’s time to use your words to declare good things. Don’t allow your words to keep you in bondage. You will have exactly what you speak. Speak God’s word over your life and watch your circumstances start to change. The best is yet to come.

________________________________________________________________________________________________-

God is the God of “right now.” He doesn’t want you sitting around regretting yesterday. Nor does He want you wringing your hands and worrying about the future. He wants you focusing on what He is saying to

you and putting in front of you….right now.-
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” God didn’t give you a spirit of fear but of power and love and of a sound mind-2 Timothy 1:7.
Today, make the choice to be happy and walk in the destiny God has for you. We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. It’s never too late to begin, just have faith. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….GREAT IS IN YOU.

______________________________________________________

Heavenly Father, I release to You the burdens that I have been carrying, burdens that You never intended for me to carry. I cast all my cares upon You—all my worries, all my fears. You have told me to not be anxious about anything, but rather to bring everything to you in prayer with thankfulness. Father, calm my restless spirit, quiet my anxious heart, still my troubling thoughts with the assurance that You are in control. I let go of my grip upon the things I have been hanging onto, with opened hands I come to you. I release to Your will all that I am trying to manipulate; I release to Your authority all that I am trying to control; I release to Your timing all that I have been striving to make happen. I thank you for Your promise to sustain me, preserve me, and guard all that I have entrusted to Your keeping. Protect my heart and mind with Your peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Father, may Your will be done in my life, in Your time, and in Your way. Amen.

Great is in You

The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. God has a plan for us all. The best feeling in the world is finally knowing you took a step of faith in the right direction. A step towards the future where everything that you thought was impossible, is possible. Ask yourself this….what would I do if I wasn’t afraid? Don’t let your fears stop you. Use it for your benefit. Fear allows you the power to succeed if you are willing to embrace it.
Today is the day to take a step forward. It’s time to change your old routines and start fresh and new. You can do whatever it is you set your mind to. Don’t let doubt of any kind stop you from believing in yourself. Dream big, work hard and never stop believing that anything is possible. Be blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!

_______________________________________________________

Has anyone told you lately how amazing you are? Well let me tell you…YOU are amazing and capable of amazing things. Ephesians 2:10 says,”For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” You were created be do great works. It’s time to start believing in yourself, to invest in your own stock and watch how you increase. Stop telling yourself I can’t do this, or this is too hard. Nothing is impossible for God, impossible is His specialty.
If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you never step forward, you will remain in the same place. You may face defeat in life, but never let yourself be defeated. I believe in you. You are truly amazing and have so much to offer this world. The pain you have been through can help someone else going through pain now. Listen to what God is laying on your heart and let Him guide you. God has the most amazing plan for your life, just trust, believe and have faith.
Today, just know that you are someone’s reason to smile. Even when you don’t see it, you are inspiring others by having courage to walk in your destiny. Never give up, never loose heart and always keep pushing. God loves you more than you can possibly know. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and an amazing blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!

Isn’t God amazing? He saw fit to bless us with another day. This bright new day is filled with opportunities, choices and chances. This remarkable gift, this one day, cannot be exchanged refunded or replaced. Handle it with care. Make the most of it. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. If we treated each day as if it were our last imagine what we would accomplish. Just keep moving forward, one day at a time the view from the top is so worth the climb.
Trials can come like a freight train…one car after another, after another but eventually the last car passes. When problems seem unceasing, remind yourself, “This too shall pass.” Handle one trial at a time in the power of the Holy Ghost until each series of events is over. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Our lives are made up of a million moments spent in a million different ways. Some are spent searching for peace, for love and harmony. Others may be spent just surviving day to day. But there is no greater moment than when we find that life, with all it’s joys and sorrows are meant to be lived just one day at a time. Keep your mind on God’s promises in spite of any news you may hear that tempts you to be afraid today. God promises to be with you, watch over you and take care of you. He says He will never leave or forsake you.
You have to get up every morning and tell yourself, “I can do this!” You are the only one that creates your reality. Never give up, don’t even let defeat come into your thoughts. Don’t worry about who believes in you, just believe in yourself. Don’t make announcements make moves and they will announce themselves. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this one step at a time because….GREAT IS IN YOU!

Today is a beautiful day, rejoice and be glad in it. Don’t let anyone or anything steal your joy. The enemy is busy. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” We must stay alert. There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict. Walk away, the battle they are fighting is not with you it’s with themselves. If allowed, the devil uses people too. You cannot let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best person you can possibly be.

___________________________________________________________________________________________-


Every morning take a good look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I’m going to have a great day and I refuse to let anyone steal my joy!” Misery loves company, never invite it in. This world is so full of hatred even when uplifting others it meets resistance. I refuse to be moved or succumb to the hatred of others and let it consume me. My mission is to uplift, motivate and encourage and I will not let the devil steal my joy and passing it on to others. He has tried it and the way my God is set up, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. God will not position you for greatness without preparing you for the position He assigned to you, to fulfill the promise He purposed for you. The giant in front of you is never bigger than the God who lives in you.

________________________________________________________________________________

Sometimes it’s hard to be inspired when defeat is knocking at the door. Look to God, He is your source. Praise God in the face of your problems. Be encouraged. We’re more than conquerors through Him that love us. My hope for you today, that you are abundantly blessed. Be a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You

Show this world what you’ve got.


What you should realize whenever the intensity in life seems to turn up and things really get hard that's a sign that you are closer to your victory. Just look up and the finish line is just up ahead. Give this life all you’ve got. You can’t fail if you don’t quit and you can’t succeed until you start. Yeah, I hear you…you’re tired right? You can rest at the finish line when you’ve won, when you’ve completed the task. Right now, it’s time to put in some work and get your dreams accomplished. Do you know there is greatness in you? This is your pep talk for the day. Blow the whistle and get in the game…don’t rest on the bleachers. It’s time to shine my Loves, show this world what you’ve got.

God’s plans will always be greater and more beautiful than all your disappointments. When you are down to nothing God is up to something. He is working in your life right now in ways you can’t understand. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. There’s no testimony without the test. Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything.

Today find rest in the fact that God will provide. Give whatever you are holding on to and battling to Him. Have faith, it can move mountains. Be blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do it because……GREAT IS IN YOU.

Real Praise

I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Psalms 34:1

Every born again believer
loves to praise the Lord!!!
He is so good to us'


But what happens when the trails and
tribulations hit us from out of now where?
Do we still have a praise on our
lips and in our hearts?
Do we trust God enough to praise Him even
when things are not going our way?
If we really want to praise the Lord with our hearts, we must trust Him enough to know that everything that happens in our lives is working out for our good,
this means in the good times as
well as the bad.
Why? because we love him.


Prayer: Lord Jesus help me to have a real
praise not only on my lips but in my heart,
especially (when it seems)
that things are not going my way.

Psalms 34:1

Every born again believer
loves to praise the Lord!
He is so good to us,
But what happens when the trails and

Do we still have a praise on our

Do we trust God enough to praise Him even

If we really want to praise the Lord with our hearts, we must trust Him enough to know that everything that happens in our lives is working out for our good. 
This means in the good times as
well as the bad.
Why? because we really do love him and not for just what he does for us,

but because He is Lord.


Prayer: Lord Jesus help me to have a real
praise not only on my lips but in my heart,
especially (when it seems)
that things are not going my way.

God saw fit to bless us with another day of life, that means we have a purpose. Are you walking in your purpose? When you walk in your purpose you collide with your destiny. It’s time to get your hopes up and raise your expectations. Your present situation is not your final destination. Everything you have experienced has a divine purpose. What a wonderful thought to carry with you today that some of the best days of your life haven’t even happened yet.


Meet the love of our lives.
Our Very best Friend.
Jesus Christ
Welcome to our Salvation room.
Getting saved is really very simple.
God has made the way so easy.
Man is the one who makes it hard.
It is as easy as A.B.C.
All you have to do is ADMIT that you are a sinner.
We all are.
And then you must ASK Jesus to come into your heart.
The Bible says in Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
What this verse of Scripture is saying is that there in not one person in this world who have not sinned.
You must also be truly sorry for your sins and you must believe that we cannot get into Heaven by doing our good deeds, or by being a good person.
The only reason that we can get into
 Heaven is because Jesus shed His precious blood and He died on the Cross for our sins. 
Now this does not mean that we will not sin again.
No way. We mess up all of the time.
We are in no way perfect and God knows that
were are not perfect, and God knows it.
This is why He sent his only Son to die for us.
This also does not mean that just because Jesus died on the Cross for us that we can live any kind of way.
No way! He wants us to try our best to not sin
and to live a life that will be pleasing to God.
You can only do this with God's help.
If you do mess up again, all you need to do is ask God
to forgive you and try not to sin again.
He will help you.
The Cross is kind of like a Bridge.
We must walk across it to get to God,
 Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.
  You must BELIEVE that Jesus died on the Cross
for your sins and that He rose from the grave.
The Bible also says in Romans 10: 9-10
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.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Let us make this Scripture a little clear for you.
We are going to let you hear what this same verse of Scripture says from the Living Bible.
9 For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
The Bible also says in Romans 10:13
For "Anyone who calls on the
name of the Lord will be saved.
Now isn't that GOOD NEWS?
Then you must tell someone that you have asked
 Jesus into your heart.
This lets God know that we are not ashamed of him.
The Bible says in Mark 8:38
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Let me make it clearer for you once again,
by reading in from The Living translation Bible.
If a person is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, I, the Son of Man, (Jesus) will be ashamed of that person (when I return) in the glory of my Father with the holy angels."
This Scripture also lets us know that Jesus is coming
back one day to get us and take us to
Heaven to live with Him forever.
If you decide to pray the prayer below
and you don't have anyone to tell, tell us.
We would love to hear that you got saved.
We are Brad and Karen
Our email is at the bottom of this page.
All you have to do is email us back telling us that you have sincerely asked Jesus to come into your heart.
We will all be so happy for you.
That is all you need to do.
Please pray and believe the prayer below.
We can tell you that if you do decide to ask Jesus into your heart, this will be the best decision that you have ever made in your life.
When you get saved you will come to know just how much Jesus loves you and just how merciful He really is.
You will never find another love like the love of Jesus.
We cannot promise that you will feel all fuzzy inside.
You may or you may not.
Either way, whether you feel something or not,
He will be in your heart.
We are saved by faith.
When you say this prayer, at that very moment Jesus will wash away all of your sins.
We do not know if within the next few seconds if
Jesus will come to get us, or if we may die.
You could die before you finish reading this letter.
Please know that we are not saying
this to try to scare you.
We are saying this because it is the truth and you do
not want to be caught dead without Jesus.
Please do not let the devil trick you into not saying this prayer.
We have said all that I can say to help you,
The next step is up to you.
Here is the prayer that you need to pray.
Dear Jesus.
I love you so much
I admit that I am a sinner and I am truly sorry for my sins.
I know now that the only way that I can be saved and go to Heaven is by admitting that I am sinner and believing that you died on the Cross for my sins and on the third day (Easter Sunday Morning)
that you got up from the grave.
Jesus I cannot promise that I will never sin,
but I will do my very best to try to live a life that is pleasing to you with your help.
 Please come into my heart dear Jesus.
Please come and live inside of me.
Please become Lord over my life.
Please help me to turn all of my problems over to you.
I do love you Jesus with all of my heart.
I thank you for dying on the Cross and shedding your precious Blood, just for me.
I now believe that since I have done what you have asked of me, according to your Word, I am now saved.
 I thank you Jesus for saving my soul.
In Jesus Name
Amen!
If you have said this prayer and you really meant it,
The Bible says that the Angels are rejoicing.
See the Scripture below.
Luke 15:10
Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
The same Scripture for the Living translation Bible.
In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.
So right now all of the Angels in heaven are rejoicing!
From this point on, we can truly say that your
life will never be the same.
We are so happy for you.
Please email us and tell us,
I just gave my heart to Jesus!
We will be rejoicing with you.
May God bless you and may He keep you in His care.
