After a healing service at my church a couple of months ago where I stood in faith for my bipolar being cured and allergies. I am off one of my 3 bipolar meds and my allergy med. This is by the grace of God.

I also find myself at a wonderful Full Gospel church where I am eagerly learning more and more from my two wonderful pastors every week.

Chris

Jesus bore my sins in His Body on the tree; therefore I am dead to sin and alive unto God and by His stripes I am healed and made whole (1Pet.2:24;Rom.6:11;2Cor.5:21.)

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes through the Father except through me" John 14:6

Thank you all for your prayers at this time. You all have meant so much to me and my family.
With your prayers Parker was able to come home from the Hospital and it was there that he passed away. I believe with all his smiles, he was talking to the Lord. He knew that it was time to say good-bye and go home with the Lord and be an Angel.

I am so extremely bubbly today. Just typing a song in my blog a few minutes ago, "The Love of God", caused the small poem to burst forth. Moments before I was choking up in sadness with an aching heart for my unsaved brother who left the faith and denies our Lord Jesus. I remembered how God promised that if you train a child up in the admonition of the Lord, that when he is old he will not depart from it. (unsure if I quoted it right). Then my tears and hurting heart became a prayer for God to touch him in some way unknown to me today.
Then I started thanking him for the assurance that he would.

Oh the deepness of God's immense love
Completely touches hearts from above,
Lips cannot be silenced from singing praise
As His Holy, Mercy fills one like beaming rays.
When "WORTHY" cried loudly from that bloody tree
"Father forgive them all" that included you and me.
Anguish,Bruised, bloody,forsaken there He died
Heart crushed with our sins; His arms opened wide.
"Saviour, your are Worthy-your love runs deep for all
May all hearts reach out to you in salvation's call.



I am a child of the Heavenly Father, made possible through Christ Jesus who died for me. (John 3:16, John 14:6, Romans 5:8, John 5:24)

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

That's awesome news, GARDENSFORLIFE! God is working, hearing and answering the prayers of His people! Jesus died for the whole person, spirit, soul and body and we need to address the needs of the whole person!

Father, I thank You for hearing and answering the prayer that GARDENSFORLIFE has been praying for her community center. Father, I ask You to meet the needs of the people just as You have promised to do in Your word. Bless her efforts, Lord, to provide for their physical needs and now I pray that You will meet the spiritual need in their lives as well. May the ones who come in to meet those spiritual needs speak the word of God with boldness and clarity of speech and may all who hear believe to the saving of their souls! May they be born again and embrace Jesus as Savior and Lord! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

I am praising God for providing a fellowship coming to the community center where I am the Executive Director. I have been praying for this and my God has said- Yes!
They will work with us to provide more services to the community. They will address the spiritual health of the community as we address the social service needs. I just Thank My God for such an opportunity to see HIS WORK DONE in our community!
Thank You Jesus!

God's way is best. He leads us in the path of righteousness for His name's sake. He provides for our every need. He teaches us to speak peace to the storms in our lives and enables us to live victoriously in all of life's challenges. It is when we yield ourselves to Him and trust Him to teach us His way that we can know the victory that Jesus purchased for us on the cross of Calvary. There is power in the blood of Jesus!

Thank you for your comments, Sandra!

I thank God for being on time, every time!! I just reaffirmed that my path does not include Bariatric surgery. God had his hands all in the decision and once it was pointed out to me, I felt such peace. Please read my blog post, "Trust" for all the details. He saved me from making a mistake of colossal proportions yet again.

MY CUP SURELY OVERFLOWS TODAY.GOD BLESSED ME AGAIN IN A POWERFUL WAY ABOUT AN HOUR AGO. ONE OF MY LADIES FROM THE JAIL WENT TO A CHRIST CENTER REHAB PLACE FOR 6 MONTHS. AT 6;30 OUR TIME THEY GAVE HER A CELEBRATION GRADUATION. OH MY FRIENDS, SHE LOOKED 20 YRS YOUNGER, HER HEAD HELD HIGH WITH THE GLORY OF THE LORD ALL OVER HER FACE. HER DAUGHTER WAS THERE AND MY FRIEND'S SISTER, NIECE AND GRAND NIECE. THEY GAVE HER SOMETHING LIKE A SHOWER. SHE READ HER TESTIMONY AND OPENED HER PRESENTS AND PRAYED BEFORE THE SNACKS WERE SERVED. MY FRIENDS, DO YOU HAVE A WOMEN'S CHRIST CENTERED REHAB FOR PEOPLE COMING OUT OF JAIL OR PRISON WHERE YOU LIVE? DO YOU HAVE JAIL BIBLE STUDY IN YOUR AREA? OH MY WHAT A BLESSING. THESE GIRLS ARE , FOR THE MOST PART THEY ARE JUST SO VERY YOUNG AND REPEAT OFFENDERS WITH HORRIBLE BACKGROUNDS OF ABUSE, AND THEN A RECORD OF ACHOLOC AND DRUGS. HOW EASY IT IS TO JUST LOVES THEM WHEN WE VISIT THERE. YOU CAN HUG THEM AND SPEND TIME ONE ON ONE AS NEEDED AFTER THE LESSON ENDS. THIRTEEN CAME TODAY. YOU KNNOW,THEY COULD BE US OR OUR FAMILIES. WHAT BLESSINGS WE CAN BE A PART OF FOR JUST BEING WHERE GOD PLACES US WHETHER A JAIL OR A MISSION CENTER , ETC.

AVANELL, I KNOW YOU USE TO DO JAIL OR PRISON MINISTERY, DIDN'T YOU?

I have the most glorious victory to praise God for. Today as I was ready to leave from teaching a lesson at the jail, a lady wanted me to write down the verses on how to be saved.
I knew before she spoke a word that she was ready to ask, so I found a pencil and borrowed a sheet of her paper at that very moment Afterwards just the two of us sat alone at a table where I had the opportunity to explain the word of God concerning salvation. My how the tears flowed as she became under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. She prayed to receive Christ as Savior. Then asked me if she could come to my church. What an additional pleasant surprise.

What a privilege God allowed me today to be a part of all of this. I love nothing better than to share Jesus with those who desire to hear the truth of the gospel. To God be the Glory! Amen and amen and amen! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I want to praise him for something he did in the wee hours of this morning. We were suppose to get the driveway relocated about 20 feet farther down on our new property.The water was standing deep and making it hard to get on the land. The equipment was brought to the property late yesterday afternoon just in case it did not rain, they could get an early start.
During the early hours of morning the lightning was flashing and the thunder rumbling, I just prayed and told the Lord even if all this was present, he could prevent it from raining here if it were in his will to do so. Praise the Lord, it did not rain! We got the new driveway fixed.

I am so thankful unto the Lord for answering my prayer. Nothing is too big or too insignificant for our Great God.

You're welcome, Karen! It helps to have others around you that understand what you are going through or have been through. God says in 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 that He comforts us in our tribulations that we might be able to comfort others when they are going through difficult times. It's good to know that nothing is wasted in God's economy!

Thank you Avanell... yes, it was very difficult as we were very close, and my sister and I did not expect to lose her as the result of a broken shoulder. I understand too what you mean about being on a downward spiral... I was in a very bad, sad, dark place for a long time but the Lord is so good... He literally reached down to me too and pulled me up out of that mire.

I can fully understand what you went through with grief and depression over losing your mother, Karen. And I am so glad He healed and delivered you from that deep attack of the enemy. I, too, suffered terrible grief when I lost my former husband. Had the Lord not reached down and pulled me out of that terrible, tragic situation I would not be here today. I was on a downward spiral that would have ended in my own death, but God saved me from the hand of the enemy! I praise the Lord for His faithfulness to save, heal and deliver people from depression and grief!

That's wonderful Bobbie! Our Lord truly is an awesome God! I praise Him with you for your victory! Thank you for sharing this... I pray in tongues every day but I am trying to give even more time to it.

I praise the Lord for delivering me from terrible grief and depression over the passing of my mother 4 years ago. Honestly, I have so many things to praise Him for - healing, provision, protection, the list goes on... I just love the Lord so much! :)

Avie, this has taken me years to get the revelation of His grace of transforming love that has changed the desires of my heart and it is all really simple and effortless with Him doing it but I had to come to the end of my self and my self efforts and turn the complete affair over to Him and keep on praying in tongues and listening and hearing and allowing Him to lead, guide and direct me into all truth about myself to do with my relationship with food.

It has taken time, patience and getting deeper and closer to Jesus then ever before.

I have complete faith in Him loving me.

I know He will never harm or hurt me so I trust Him with my heart.

He has changed the desires of my heart so that food does not rule and reign in my life like it once did.

I now have complete control over what I put in my mouth and this is the greatest way to live free from the bondage of having to eat whether I was hungry or not.

I am free and now am finally losing weight and feel so healthy and energetic.

This is the place to post your victories over whatever you have experienced in life. Maybe you have a weight loss victory that you want to share or a financial breakthrough. It could be a victory in a relationship or other friendship. Whatever it is God deserves the glory! Let's Praise Him!
