March 13

When I was a teenager, I remember getting up early to go to the beach. It was about an hour from my house. I was always drawn to it this time of year, but mornings in March are still a little chilly. My friend and I would get dressed with our swimsuits underneath our clothes and put our jackets on to keep us cozy. By the time we got there, it was already warming up to become the perfect day. I loved the beach then, and I adore it now. It is such a delight to breathe in the salty air, to feel the sand between my toes, and to soak up the sun. Listening to the waves splashing on the shore and the sound of seagulls makes me happy. Something about it refreshes my soul and brings me a little closer to the Father. The LORD has given us another day on this earth; don’t waste your time fretting over what will become of us; instead, be grateful for today and enjoy your moments. Today, so far, I’ve enjoyed coffee at sunrise, but my feet will hit the beach soon, and God will bless me with another relaxing, easy day; a gift from the Father to his daughter, his beloved. Do something that brings you joy today, but make sure you give God all the glory for those joyful moments.

He who made the Pleiades and Orion, and turns deep darkness into the morning and darkens the day into night, who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the surface of the earth, the LORD is his name; Amos 5:8

What is going on in the background outside of our knowledge? Is God pulling strings to put the world back in order? Must everything be destroyed so his plan can fall into place? Is what we believe an illusion? Time will reveal the truth, but what must we do until then? Fill our minds with the only reality available. What we see on television, the radio, social media, or other broadcasts, is not the truth. We cannot count on them. We can rely on God’s word to be the truth, but outside of his word and creation, we can only trust in the Holy Spirit and his revelations. It is imperative, right now, that you begin to believe in him. When we start to see the truth, it could be devastating to those who are not grounded in their faith in God and his plan for the world. Maybe he’s ordering things for the return of Jesus and preparing his children for departure, or perhaps he’s giving the world another chance for redemption by the blood of his son. In any case, your connection to the Holy Spirit must be strong, tune into his frequency, plug into his power, and relinquish all ties to the enemy and his lies. We have not been made for destruction but for honorable use. Give him the glory; even if life becomes complicated, it will prove perfect in the end.

Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory— Romans 9:21-23

There are special days where your life changes forever; some are good, and some are bad. When decisions you’ve made lead to a lasting friendship, you know God intended it and realize it was part of his plan. That’s when you know it wasn’t your decision at all, it was God’s!

I remember well what God told me when on my way home from a ski trip with my church. Through his scriptures, he gave me clues into who would become my partner forever; that was one of the first times I remember seeing a word from him come true. After 25 years, that word is still alive. 

The adventure began that day and hasn’t stopped. Together, we have the best life imaginable.

Happy anniversary to the most incredible man a girl could ask for; I love you with all my heart.

A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. Psalms 127:1

People get ready; there’s a train that’s coming! I’m thankful to be alive at this time in history. The world has gone mad, and people are doing unthinkable things, but I’m convinced that we will get to see a move of God like in biblical days. I believe there will be some grief before we see him move miraculously, but it will only be temporary. There will be people to help others overcome the heartbreak; I hope you are well informed, ready, and able to jump in because this will be a harvest like none other in history. If you have felt like God isn’t using you, wait for it; you may be the only person there to help the people near you to see that from something bad, God can create good. 

The Light will expose the darkness, and darkness is more heinous than you can even imagine, even in your wildest nightmare. The dream of everlasting light is upon us. Don’t give up; don’t become weary. Soon, everything will fall into place as God has intended.

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

I know I’m not alone in this because I see the trucks everywhere, but I like ordering things online! In most cases, I get the items I desire quicker than I would if I waited for the right time to go to the store. There are certain things that I can only get online now that I have become accustomed to it. However, I love shopping at home goods stores in person, but I’ve noticed that lately their shelves are somewhat empty; it’s probably because more people are now shopping online and having it delivered. There is a matter of trust when it comes to shopping on the internet; you have to pay for it before it comes, then you are hopeful that it’s delivered timely, especially if it’s a gift.

In the same way, we are hopeful in Jesus; the waiting seems long because the world has gone mad, and the longer he waits, the less tolerant others are becoming of our hopefulness. They don’t like our holiness reminding them of their sin. Don’t give up, even in the hope that God has a plan to redeem our country, but most of all, don’t give up on the hope of salvation in Jesus. Like online ordering, Jesus has already paid for it; we just have to wait patiently for the delivery.

For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24-25

I may be outspoken when it comes to what I believe to be true, which is biblical principles, and try to reflect that belief when living out my life, but I only measure you if you say you’re a Christ-follower. Our only measure is Christ, and we all fall short of him and the standard of measure set by God, unless Jesus hides us within himself, then we reflect him, and God sees us through the lens of Jesus. Thank you, Jesus, for covering our sinfulness!

Sinners, however, will be judged in their death; Satan is their ruler, and he’s already set them up for conviction unless they decide to renounce their allegiance to him and follow Christ. Unfortunately for them, Satan makes sure they all know the rules; otherwise, they wouldn’t know that the atrocities that they commit are atrocious. You cannot live on this earth without knowing God; only a magnificent being could create the amazement we are surrounded by, so to say you don’t believe is a lie. 

Keep praying for your loved ones who haven’t committed their lives to Jesus and those who are influencing them and encouraging them to follow the earth's ruler, Satan, and that God would open their eyes to the truth.

Did that which is good, then, bring death to me? By no means! It was sin, producing death in me through what is good, in order that sin might be shown to be sin, and through the commandment might become sinful beyond measure. Romans 7:13

March 7

Yesterday, I tripped and fell, but I only injured my heal. This morning, I can barely walk! If I try and put pressure on the front, it radiates to the back. It left me in a bit of a predicament because my coffee is downstairs! I hobbled my way down, but I couldn’t carry my dog, so she had to make her way down independently. It’s incredible to me how one little injury has affected my whole body, and others around me, even though it’s minor. 

My injury is an example of how sin can affect your whole body. That little lie you told or when you neglected someone’s feelings; if you are genuinely saved, will riddle your conscience with unbearable guilt, which will, in turn, affect your whole body. Your sin is not only against a person; you sinned against God. Quickly repent to keep the damage to a minimum; better yet, take the option that doesn’t require you to sin. 

So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Romans 6:11-12
