Wouldn’t you like to see Utopia? Wouldn’t we all like to see a world without pain, suffering, disagreements, wars, orphans living on the streets with nothing? We have been promised, assured we will live in such a Utopia if we believe in, try to emulate the historically documented Jesus of Nazareth.
It will begin with a revived American church. Our country leads the world in almost everything and so do our churches or they should at least try. Wouldn’t you like to see a church less divided among itself, one with more influence over the world and its culture rather than the other way around with the culture having more influence over God’s living, holy church??
I would love to see revival in the American churches. I pray for revival with more of the power of the Holy Spirit alive and well in our spiritual family. I pray for a lower divorce rate in our churches, a church less caught up in lusting after money and material possessions and one that lusts after Christ more instead. I pray for a church that is less caught up in fitting in with the world and more concerned with standing up and being different from the world’s standards. I pray for a church like the first century one that is willing to go and sell something, lay the money at the feet of our church leaders in order to help the poor and more needy in God’s family. I pray for a church whose true glory is the glory of the living Christ!
May God bless your day. Praise God!!!
Dear God, Creator, of all the Universe and Beyond
I give you all the praise and honor. Thank you for being who you are, for the beauty of your face and the beauty of your great heart. Thank you for the gift of your one and only Son and your Holy Spirit. Praise you God for who you are!
I pray your blessing and protection on all of your churches world-wide, your family, and the people trying to lead them closer to you. I pray we could all be more of what you want us to be so that it is not I that liveth but Christ that liveth in me. I pray especially for the church of my country, America, that we would be less caught up in the culture and more caught up in You, Holy Lord.
I pray for your whole world that every soul on it could come to know you as their Lord and Savior and come to know how much you love them. May we as your church show them your love! I pray this in the name of your most beautiful, gracious Son,
I used to love to write poetry. I have just recently started again. Here are a few old ones from years ago.
The silver soul
Sits on the wire.
The golden globe lights
With eternal fire
The sky and waiting soul.
Changing in His passing by
More nearly each to burning gold.
Both breathe for this a longing sigh.
Golden mirrors of His warmth
For this lost world to view and know,
Making it more clearly seen
The riches of His Heavenly Glow.
It tears at my flesh,
My soul is reborn
Into a world of light.
No more running out of the night.
I thank you Gracious Lord again
For this glory of new life.
It runs downhill and up
In endless joyful flight!
I was born into this world with no home. I was an orphan, traumatized and abused. I had the hot breath of Satan in my face from the second I popped from the womb. But after 68 years of life and getting to know God and Christ better, I have come to believe in some ways it was a blessing. When life chewed me up and spit me out and left me empty, it personally pushed me to pursue a heavenly Father more than if I had had a great childhood. I believe that may be one of the reasons God allows suffering, to make us more needy and desperate for Himself. When you search for me with all your heart, you will find me.
So even if the whole world turns its back on you, you have a Heavenly Father who adores and passionately loves you. Let the power of Christ and His Spirit fill you up. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Won’t you let Him love you into Paradise before it’s too late?
Here’s a silly little poem I wrote. Hope you like it.
Praise in the Rain,
Praise in the Light,
Praise under the Covers
in the middle
of the Night.
Shout in the darkness,
Lift out your voice,
You’re free, never forced
to make it your choice.
So Praise, Praise
this Wonder of Wonders,
This God which we have
with His cross that covers
each and every Blunder!
God loves each and every one of us from the President of the United States to the beggar on the street the same. If God loves and respects you why would you not love yourself? Praise God, Praise God!!!
As I have said in an earlier blog, the main reason I started this blog was to testify of some experiences I had had with God. I would like to testify before I have to leave this earth. I have already had an aggressive form of cancer two times and am currently in remission. If God can become more real for you then that is what I hope and pray can happen through this.
I’ve told earlier of some of my childhood troubles, the devastation I went through from being an orphan. I was going through a very dark time in my adulthood. I have always had trouble with anxiety, sometimes very severe anxiety and have all my life had trouble with nightmares because of this.
As I was going through this difficult time, my anxiety level went up high, and the nightmares increased. One night I woke up in tears, crying, from one dream. As I laid in bed trying to get control of myself, the sensation of someone physically gently caressing my head started at the top of my head and went down the back to the top of my neck. At the time I felt no fear. A thought ran through my mind. It was an angel trying to comfort me.
I know in this modern, humanistic age where we glorify man above everything else a belief in the supernatural is discouraged and even laughed at. But God is real and is still in control of His universe. I’m just grateful to Him for allowing me to learn about Him and for His love that reaches down to comfort us in our time of deepest need. May He bless your day today. Praise God!!!
I started life as an orphan. My birth mother would not give me up for adoption so I was kept in the system sort of in limbo. My first home was an orphanage, but because I was not developing well I was then put into foster care. Before the age of two I was moved around at least 3 to 4 times. It was like being in hell. I felt like an unwanted piece of human garbage. I have known a total vacuum of love or lovelessness. Fear, pain and despair were the emotions I remember best.
I did later get adopted, but my adoptive mother did not quite know how to deal with a damaged child. She was an emotionally troubled person herself so I did not get the healing I needed. I carried over the same damage and emotional problems into my adulthood.
As problems came, and they come to all of us, I did not know how to deal with them very well at times. I felt very empty on the inside. I remember praying very deeply at times. God heard those prayers. I at one time had decided to fast for the first time in my life and did it to honor God’s goodness in my life. I don’t know why He decided to do what He did except out of the goodness of His heart.
The night of the fast I was suddenly awake in the middle of the night. The intense heat started at the top of my head and slowly went down until it engulfed my whole body. I lost all physical sensation. I was aware only of the beating of my heart. It lasted for about a few minutes and then slowly subsided until it was completely gone. I have never experienced anything like it ever again with any of my other fasting. I believe God touched me that night. Out of the kindness of his heart. I was going through a very dark time in my life. I feel He did it to encourage me when I needed it most.
In your darkest times, place yourself into the hands of the living God. He loves you more than anyone else ever will. Praise God!!!
Early this morning, God gave me another impression, or vision, no matter what word you want to use for it. He has been so kind to me. I think possibly because of how devastating my childhood felt. He has the kindest heart in all of creation and existence.
I was already awake. I have just come off of five years of cancer treatments in which I have had to have several major surgeries. My surgical site is still a little sore, and this wakes me up at night sometimes. I was awake, and I could hear the tune to a waltz running through my mind. God gave me the impression of dancing with Him in a small ballroom. There were a few other people there. We were dancing on the dance floor. I was dressed in a long, but simple white dress. My hair which is naturally dark was more of a blonde color and held back in one long braid. He just kept dancing me around the room. The room was edged by columns and full of light. I could feel this deep sense of peace, wholeness completeness. It was wonderful!
I woke up with still the same deep sense of peace. I do not know why people do not want to believe that somewhere in the universe is someone that wants to love them that deeply and completely. Why would you not want to believe in a beautiful, wonderful loving Heavenly Father? That has always mystified me.
In Revelation, Christ returns to reap His harvest. Rev. 14: 14-16 I looked and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
Christ has promised He will return, and this time He will not come back as a poor, beaten-down carpenter. He is returning as the Alpha and the Omega, the Ruler of the Universe in all His full glory.
The wonderful thing about our God is that He is Holy, Majestic and Glorious, powerful enough to speak, breathe, a universe into existence but wants to love us!! He wants to save you into an eternity of Paradise with Himself. Only those who believe in the sacrifice He made on the cross will be allowed to spend forever in His presence. Romans 8: 1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Won’t you let Him love you before He returns for His harvest!!!
