Mountain Moving Faith

When Jesus’ disciples asked him why they were unable to perform the same healing miracle as he did on the little boy Jesus replied “…Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.  However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Matthew 17:20-21

Regardless of the size of your faith know it has the ability to change your situation.  Allow your faith to continually grow.   No matter if you’re prayers go unanswered you must hold on to your faith!  Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

You may think no one understands or that no one cares, but God does.  We serve a merciful and powerful God.  You are stronger than you realize.  God doesn’t put more on us than we can bear.  Remember, it’s always darkest before the dawn.  Hebrews 11:1  reads “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Blind

Blinded by tears I have so many fears.

Time is not on my side No one understands.

Too ashamed to speak

I have no solid place to sleep

Drifting like a snowflake

Don’t know how much more I can take.

I’m so blind just can’t see a way out

Blinded by tears can’t move forward

There’s so much opposition from the enemy

All I want is to experience happiness

To see opportunities to rise above this.

God I hand over the steering wheel of my life to you

I don’t know what to do

You drive You park my life where you want it

Open up my eyes Lord

Show me a miracle.

Mark Me Not

Who’s ready for the day when your employer tells you to take a microchip? How will you respond? What will you do when they insist it will be more convenient and simplify your life? No more identification badges or credit cards, all of your medical information will be stored on the microchip. What if your child’s school requests to microchip your child? Or if your spouse or loved one gets microchipped in ignorance?

Come on, let’s face it, a lot of our day to day items already contain a microchip such as our bank cards, bus/train cards, driver license cards, some passports, etc. This was all a warm up to get us acclimated to being microchipped. Pet owners microchip their dogs and cats to ensure they can locate them in case they get lost. Some people have already received the radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip in their hand just between the thumb and index finger, will you?

I recall first learning about the microchip by reading the book “Behold a Pale Horse” by Milton William Cooper. The ex U. S. Naval intelligence member reveals the government’s agenda to get everyone microchipped by any means necessary, but particularly through the use of a vaccine disguised as a measure to prevent a disease which was produced in the lab. The book was published in 1991 so the microchip idea was planned years ago!

The Bible in the book of Revelations also discusses the microchip, how it is the mark of the beast, a powerful anti christ leader. People won’t be able to buy or sell products and services without it. How are you supposed to eat if the grocery store will only accepts microchip payments? This is a serious thought to consider: If your life was on the line would you receive the microchip? My response is mark me not! I am a believer of Christ and I’d rather die than be microchipped.

Courage

Courage is getting up and doing

What your heart desires.

Courage is a fire that burns

Brightly in your eyes.

Courage is the power to stand up for

Yourself without help from others.

Have the courage of a Lion and Roar baby, Roar

Until you Soar into new heights.

 

Courage is loving yourself enough to

Know you deserve better.

Courage is knowing the risks but,

Doing it anyway.

Courage is remaining true to

Who you are and

What you believe in.

Courage is saying “I will survive”

Even with tears in your eyes.

Courage is keeping your eyes on the prize.

Courage is feeling in your soul

That you will rise.

 

Courage is hearing the sound of success in your ears.

Courage is trusting yourself and God

Knowing you’ll be guided through

No matter what you do.

Courage is what we all have within us

We must use it

For it is necessary like a shoe.

I carry my courage with pride.

 

 

Are You Tithing Into False Religions?

Once upon a time I used to go to the nail shop to get my nails done.  I tried a lot of different nail treatments such as: French Manicure, Natural Manicure, Shellac, Silk Wrap, Gel Nails, Pink and White Manicure and of course a pedicure.  I remember walking in the shop and smelling the awful chemicals and hearing the sound of the nail drills ugh.

The nail shop staff never welcomed me.  There was no warm welcome, no rapport building, no small talk just straight to business.  The typical greeting was “Hello, how can I help you?”  Then when you reply with what service you require they instruct you to pick a colour then demand you take a seat and wait or sit in a chair and have the service performed.  The nail technicians rarely sanitised their work station after their last client, nor wash their hands.   Sometimes the nail technicians nails weren’t short or well groomed! Oh my gosh why did I tolerate such unprofessionalism?  Was it so I could have nice nails? Some people get infections from going to the nail shops.

The customer service at the nail shops is horrendous.  They don’t offer you any beverages while you wait or even inform you of how long you will wait.  There is minimal eye contact.  Now, I understand English isn’t the nail shop staff’s first language and they have a limited vocabulary but, how on earth were they able to pass their beauty exams?  Doesn’t their beauty course teach them customer service?

I have decided to no longer go to East Asian nail shops that display shrines to Buddha and golden idols, many of them have flowers and food beside them and on open display. It freaks me out!  It’s not cool to spend my hard earned money tithing into a religion I don’t support and without my consent.  I prefer going to an English speaking nail shop or beauty spa where it is generally hygienic, safe, and my business is appreciated.

Do you think Christians should tithe into another religion by purchasing goods and services from an non christian business?

Psalm 40.4

When you don’t feel like it…..

When you dont feel like waking up

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like going to work

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like cooking dinner

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like talking to nobody

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like going to church

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like washing dishes

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like trying again

Do it anyway!

When you don’t feel like dressing up

Do it anyway!

The amount of time wasted complaining and pondering about whether or not you should complete a task is unproductive. Just get on with ot and do it anyway! Time is money honey.

Fight With Your Faith

Sometimes stuff happens that you can’t comprehend.  Some days you wonder “When will the craziness end?”  You may even ask “Why God?” What have I done to deserve this?” Others have a easier life than me.  It’s not fair God.” Or you might say “I give up there’s no point trying anymore everytime I try I get let down” “Is there really a God?”

Words our powerful as well as our thoughts and behaviour.  My mother taught me the days you feel the worst are the days you should dress up and put your best face forward.  You have to encourage yourself and know that trouble doesn’t last always.  Smile through the storm.  We all have problems.  Life without problems would be uninteresting.  The harder the battle the sweeter the victory.

As I write this blog, I can sincerely say I am at a point in my life where I question God and patiently wait on my breakthrough.  One thing I’ve learned though is if you keep moving, keep trying, keep fighting some way, some how things will improve.  Pray.  Focus on the positives.  Be still.  When others provoke you don’t let them win or have power over you by getting you mad.  Take a deep breath and walk away.  A lack of response is better than a foolish response.  Fight with your faith.
