Over the past few weeks I have been amazed time and time again, every time God has shown me how much He loves me. He's shown me through the video that is on this website, He's shown me through books I've read. And people I've been around. I've even seen His love in the big white puffy clouds that we've had a lot around here lately.
I've been looking at a lot of scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. And there are scriptures that I'm am going to put in this article. But I wanted…Continue

One of the first things I want to say is that God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. For years I tried to be good enough so that the Lord would love me. I knew in my head that He loved me, but I didn't own it in my heart. And although I didn't understand it until not to long ago, the need for affection and acceptance drove me to works. To try and earn the Lord's love and acceptance. I think one of the hardest things for me to learn is there…Continue

Here we are at almost the end of March. It seems that with each year that passes the years seem to speed by us. And with that I have felt a quickening in my spirit, that time is short. That Jesus will be returning to get those who are His soon.
One of the things that the Lord has been impressing on my heart is how many people struggle with the love of God. Those who believe that they have just done to many bad things to receive the love of Jesus our Lord. Or those who have had a…Continue
Yesterday I went to the church to help do some stuff. I was talking to my Care Pastor about my blog when I got emotional, and began telling her about how my heart was still pretty tender about the whole healing thing. Upon hearing this we ended up in an unplanned counseling session. God did some amazing things, He showed me that I was still dealing with rejection from my childhood, stuff I thought I had long since dealt with.
I received an answer of why I wasn't physically healed.…Continue

Well there you have it, my entire testimony to date, and you have now read about the worst most darkest place I've ever been. But God is faithful even when we are not, I guess that's one of the things I wanted you to see the most.
We have a very kind and loving God. His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23). I want you to see through the example in my life that Christians are merely people like everyone else, and sometimes we make wrong choices, and mistakes. We are not…Continue

This morning in my prayer time, I've been thinking a lot about the counseling sessions I've had with my Care Pastor. I have felt for the past couple of weeks that they might be ending soon. Well this morning I believe the Lord has told me that He has accelerated the…

We are to submit ourselves a living sacrifice--- wholly submitted to the Lord. Fully surrendered to the Lord with no back up plan for us to fall back on.
Pastor asked this question " How surrendered are you to the Lord? I ask myself the same thing and I am not quite sure what the answer is. I know I want and desire to live a life that is fully surrendered, but I'm not sure how to do that, I don't know what that looks…Continue

Well the Lord did it again for the 3rd week in a row, He spoke through Pastor straight to the heart of me. This time He (God) asked me some tough questions, they were good questions, just ones that I at the moment or in my own self simply don't know how to do, But I do hear His heart. I know He wants me to make the right…Continue

I have been meaning to get in here and type in this journal for a couple of days now. God has been showing me a lot of things this week, through Cleansing Streams, through His Word, through everyday life. I am not even sure where to begin since it's been spread out over a…

Today I had another meeting with my Care Pastor, and it was totally amazing. We were talking about the healing thing, and how far I've come since October 17th. The Lord showed her that I was a cracked pot and He had to smash the pot, that I had been broken and poured out. I told her that I believed that, then as we were talking the Lord showed me a grey lump of…Continue

I became totally lost, I lost my faith in God. I was devastated and didn't understand why this had happened to me. I didn't understand why God had me go through this. I struggled each day with my emotions, I was completely falling apart, but was trying to maintain some since of control of my life. I stopped going to church, and stopped talking to pretty much everyone from the church. Except for two people. One of them was another friend I had, from the church who didn't know anything of what…Continue

About two weeks before I believed I was to be healed I began to feel in my spirit that I wasn't going to be healed. I chalked it up to the enemy trying to discourage me, so I pushed it aside, but in the back of my mind I had a small growing fear that it wasn't going to happen.
One morning three days before October 17th my friend popped online, and wanted to chat. As I was talking to her she began to ask me if I had been marching. I freaked out, and panicked and couldn't figure out how…Continue

During the time between the time we stopped our daily prayer and when I was to be healed, I began to feel the effects of my crazy summer schedule. I still talked to my friend almost daily via an instant messenger program. Things started changing for me, and I began to misunderstand things that people were saying to me, including my friend, and I found myself getting really agitated, and getting offended at them, and it wasn't even their fault, it was totally my misunderstanding people around…Continue

Towards the end of the second thirty day period I began to read a book called "Rees Howell's Intercessor". I was totally floored and amazed by this book. The things that the Lord had this man doing were amazing. And his heart really was to do all and only what the Lord had told him, and God worked many miracles through him because of it. One night when I was reading I came across a part where a friend of his was sick, and the Lord instructed him and the friend to ask for a specific time and…Continue

When I was thirty-five the Lord had showed me the passage of scripture about the man at the pool of Bethesda. John 5:1-14 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. 3 In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the…

I continued to go to the church here. It took me about a year before I really connected with anyone in the church. We were going to be have a special speaker who would minister to people through the Word of God. I prayed all weekend that God would speak to me, I hadn't felt His presence for a long time. I just figured it had to be because of the way I had lived when I had fallen back into my old ways, and that He must be looking down on me. Even though through my husband God had brought me…Continue

I finally got so lonely, and had been waiting so long for God to bring someone into my life, after a year and a half, I took matters into my own hands and put myself at some dating sites online. The problem was that most of the sites I was on were for people who were just wanting sex, and I was looking for something long term, I wanted a lifetime relationship. I just wanted to be loved and taken care of.
Unfortunately, I made some bad choices and began slipping away from the Lord,…Continue

During the ten year period that I went to the Foursquare Church, my ex and I split up and got back together twice, finally the third time ended in divorce in 2004. Also during this time the Lord blessed me with two cars at two different times, and with a house from Habitat for Humanity. I was also on a rotating schedule along with another group of women to be on the worship team. It was such a great time of growth for me in so many ways. At the same time however I began to have problems in…Continue
