Change our LIFESTYLE, Change our HEALTH, Change our DESTINY
Hi my name is Karen, I am a born again, Bible believing Christian. God is my refuge, my strength and my source. I am 59 years old with some challenging medical issues. God , my family and all of my Spark Friends have been my biggest support groups. I am looking forward to this journey and the opportunity to meet others with simular situtations.
I am a Co-Leader on the Christians with Fibromyalgia Sparkteam. If you need a place to come to for prayer and support this is the place to come too. Are you dealing with Fibromyalgia and all the things that go along with that? Stop by and check out our Christians with Fibromyalgia Sparkteam. You'll be glad you did.
Let me tell you a little bit about our Heavenly Father- He is - "Elohim" - The Creator of Heaven and Earth!
He is - "El-Shaddai" - The God Almighty of Blessings!
He is - "Adonai" - My LORD and my Master!
He is - "Jehovah-Jireh" - My PROVIDER!
He is - "Jehovah-Rapha" - MY HEALER!
He is -"Jehovah-M'Kaddesh" - My Sanctifier!
He is - "Jehoval-Nissi" - MY VICTORY!
He is- " Jehovah-Shalom" - MY PEACE!
He is- "Jehovah-Tsidkenu" - MY RIGHTEOUSNESS!
He is - " Jehovah-Rohi - MY SHEPHERD!
He is - "Jehovah-Shammah" - The LORD MY HELPER!
He is - " El-Elyon" - The Most High God!
He is - the Everlasting-God, The GREAT GOD, The Living-God, The Merciful- God, the Faithful- God, The Mighty-God, He is truth, justice, Righteousness, and Perfection. He is the Name above all names....
Father, You have exalted above all else YOUR NAME and YOUR WORD, and YOU have Magnified Your Word above all Your Name! The WORD was made Flesh, and dwelt among us, and HIS NAME IS JESUS! HALLOWED BE THY NAME!
