Do you know Jesus Personally?

Or do you know about Him? Are you Serving Mama and Daddy’s; Grandma and Grandpa’s God?

Is God Your God?

Jeremiah 31:3: The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

Jeremiah 31:33: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Jeremiah 31:34: And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

I just believe that each of us must have our own Damascus Road experience. It is wonderful when others in our lives share their Testimonies’. I just believe that is called Hearsay, you did not experience it for yourself. There are some things in your life that you understand better as you experience them.

Anymore; I can learn some things just by listening. For instance; I have never been drunk or high. I am 53 years of age; I will just take your word. I don’t need to go out and experience it.

The Word is telling us; the Lord will put His law in our “Inward parts”. If you do not fill that place that God has created for Himself in you; with Him. You will continue to be empty.

I have to ask; are you attempting to fill that place with-in YOU with everything else besides with the Lord? Family; Self; Alcohol; Drugs; Work; Sex; Power; Job, Money, Sex, etc, Have you tried Jesus?

Did you become inpatient? Were your prayers not answered the way you thought? Did people in the church hurt you?

I apologize. I just want to ask you what Did God personally do to you. As Mother Boyd asked me. Did you wait on the Lord or did you set a time frame for Him, and when He did not do things in your time; did you take matters into your own hands? Are you angry with God?

Did the people that hurt you; did you think that they should no more than you do? I would just like to suggest to you. Just as you are searching for God; so are other people. Who are we to judge as to who should be wherein their relationship with the Lord.  Matthew 7:1: Judge not, that ye be not judged.

I just want you to know that it is one of the enemies’ tactics to throw you off course. It is just a trick of the enemy!

Wherever you are; whatever you feel that you have done. Repent, return to your fist love.

God is waiting for you! I challenge you. Go back to the Lord.

Are you Thirsty?

John 4:9: Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

John 4:10: Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

John 4:11: The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

John 4:12: Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

John 4:13: Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

John 4:14: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

John 4:15: The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

John 4:16: Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

John 4:17: The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

John 4:18: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

John 4:19: The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

John 4:20: Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

John 4:21: Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

John 4:22: Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

John 4:23: But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

The woman may have gone to the well to get a drink of water; she got more than she bargained for her! Isn’t it wonderful when God Blesses us? When we come to Him to stop our hurts and He heals not only where we are hurting yet touches other areas of our lives?

SOMETHINGS;:I HAVE LEARNED;  SO FAR!

Be Obedient

Isaiah 1:19: If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

Pray, Listen, Obey

Obey God at all cost!

Take God at His Word

Barbara does not and will not ever know it all!!!!!

1 Thessalonians 5:18: In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Destroy generational curses

Don’t ever become bitter. 1 Thessalonians 5:17: Pray without ceasing. If you ever get to the point you can’t pray; you really, really need God to help you; as we all do!!!

1 John 3:14: We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

My ultimate goal is:

Matthew 25:23: His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Never stop learning; keep an open mind

satan is my enemy; not my Sister, Brother or my Children; satan can and will use whoever allows him/her to use them. Luke 22:21: But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

I have been dipped!!! Thank God

2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

1 John 4:6: We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Don’t go backwards. Don’t return to what God has delivered you from!

1 Corinthians 11:28: But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

Realize that God is God; people are going to be people! Don’t expect them to be God!

Ecclesiastes 5:1: Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.

Don’t be afraid to turn the T.V. off and listen to God. Sometimes; spend time intentional with Him. Just the two of you!

Pray daily! More; than once if required!

My Bible doesn’t tell me to like anyone. We must Love one another; we also must forgive to be forgiven. Don’t allow anyone other than God to control you!

The Bait of satan is offence

Proverb 4:27: Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

How do I treat my enemy?

Matthew 5:44: But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Luke 6:28: Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

John 17:9: I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

Get over what people think and what I think. It is what God says!!!

Anger is not the issue; it is what I do with it! Any anger you will not control; will control you. We all get angry! Deuteronomy 32:22: For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

Ephesians 4:26: Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

Be the Mature person in the situation; regardless of the situation. (Age has nothing to do with it)

Pray about everything and everybody.

Philippians 4:6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Anything I will not confront; I will not deal with; including me and my issues!

There was an Earthquake in my Life. Everything in my life that was not founded upon Jesus was taken away and removed.

Currently; my Soul, Spirit and Body are in agreement. My flesh no longer rules!!

1 Thessalonians 5:23: And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There are some things that are just between God and I.

2 Timothy 4:3: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

1 Thessalonians 5:20: Despise not prophesyings.

1 Peter 2:11: Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

1 Peter 2:12: Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Acts 15:20: But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

I have to take authority over my flesh; scripture tells me that my tongue I can’t tame. With God’s help; I can starve my flesh. Remember, whatever part of your body you/I feed the most; will be the strongest. I have no books, magazines that would detour me from God! I don’t watch R-rated or X-rated movies. I watch lots of TBN, those channels, tapes and CD’s. I watched the Passion once. I have the movie on CD; I’ve not been able to watch it again. (It is heartbreaking). I don’t watch scary movies. I have enough imagination all by myself! If I don’t look at something; why have it around! Sometimes; we can make things more difficult for ourselves! Now the stuff they show on TV; should be rated R and some of it should be X-rated. There are some things; I did not allow my children to see. We did not watch the Simpsons. Some things do not show good examples! I believe that as parents; we have a responsibilty that God has entrusted us with precious lives!

I desperately seek God!

I must be careful what I allow in my eye gates, my ear gates and I must watch my mouth:

I have set forth to please my God. I must make the right choices!

I am no spring chicken nor am I a baby Christian.

God is my Master. Anything He tells me not to do it is for my good and For His Glory! I am still learning. There are some things that I knew intellectually. Until My Sprit, Body and Soul could come together. I took God for granted. I’m being real. I can’t tell you from the aspect of a perfect child. I can tell you as someone that has personally experienced God’s Grace and Mercy. I just believe there are some things that do not become real to us; until we experience them. Im here to tell you. It is possible to learn from listening. I did not have anyone to share these things with me. I guarantee you; if you follow God’s word, He will teach you.

Just know; because you follow God’s word; it does not exempt you from problems. Most of my suffering has come from learning how to wait on God. In all that I have been through physically. It has not been the Physical pain that I have suffered. It has been the emotional and mental anguish. Maybe it’s just me.

God has been with me through the things I’ve been through. Oh yeah, now childbearing was not a picnic. God has a way of healing that pain. (Smile). God will heal you where you hurt! I’m a witness! Out of the five children. The longest I was in labor was four hours. Maybe that’s why I had so many! (Smile) “But My God”

I have a new enjoyment, love and appreciation for my children. We must realize that our children are people as well. They don’t have to do anything for us. I had a conversation with someone today. Please don’t ever take anyone for granted!! Ever!

There are a number of things that I learned after the stroke. I am just being real. See if you can learn them without having to go through what I did! However;

Hebrews 5:8: Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Don’t lose your sweetness!

Don’t sweat the small stuff!

Just as God; has extened Grace and Mercy to me! Extend Grace and Mercy to someone else. None of us deserves it; we surely can’t pay for it!!

Remember; what your parents taught you; always say Please and Thank you!

I will never forget the elderly lady in Florida told me “Baby it is a suffering way”. I did not know her matter of fact she hugged me while she told me. I just believe that God strategically places people in our lives as well as

Hebrews 13:2: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Obey! update

Obey

Ephesians 6:1: Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

Colossians 3:20: Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

We often quote this to our children. Sometimes, we forget that we are God’s Children. I sometimes had to use tough Love on my children, of course it was years before they realized that it was actually LOVE; is it that way with us at times? God was trying to get my attention for years, at first. I was so happy that the Lord had chosen me, then I tried to straddle the fence, then I returned to My First Love. Then I became more obedient; and after becoming more obedient; I truly realized that with God all things are possible. I use to try and say to the Lord, if you know, this is a problem AREA FOR ME WHY DON’T YOU FIX IT, I AM TRYING MY BEST? God let me know; that was the problem. I was trying to do it, without HIM!!!

God is God and whatever He says Go. I have learned, not to focus on me and my desires. God promised me that he would not give me anyone that does not love us both, Him first! My husband and I together will serve the Lord.

Ephesians 5:23: For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

God will continue to lead us and guide us. I don’t want anyone that the Lord hasn’t given me, because if the Lord has not given him to me, the Lord also has not supplied me with the Grace to deal with that Person. I just believe that what is for each of us, we will receive, if we hold on and let God speak for us. When the Lord directs us to speak, then speak, what the Lord has given you. 

I have to have God to receive and keep him. I can’t do anything on my own. Do you hear me? God said that there are Blessings on the other side of my obedience. I think that sometimes, I am the one holding things up me ?

We do live and learn, To God Be The Gory for what he has done in me, what He is doing and what he is going to do in me and my life. 

I always live in expectation that God is going to do just what he SAID!

Remember what He told you?

Note: I heard Charles Stanley say on In Touch Ministries: “Obedience always brings a Blessing”.

The Lord; had spoke to me and said “There are Blessings on the other side of my obedience” Amen!
