Let the Perfect LOVE of God Rid You of All Fear!

365 times in the Bible, it tells us to “DO NOT FEAR”, so why do we still give into it? Why keep allowing the lies of the enemy to beat you down each and every day?

I’ll tell you why, beloved—because either we do not read God’s Word at all, or we do, and do not BELIEVE and receive the benefits from it.

We are to TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD—all of it, not just bits and pieces of it. You insult the Most High God if that is what you are doing. I know—I did it myself years ago, and I did not even realize I was doing it.

If you say you believe in God, in His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit—if you say that the Eternal Godhead is part of your life—part is not good enough.

SURRENDER ALL to Him! Seek and pray to have God’s perspective in this life; long for righteousness and truth, and to rid this world of the evil that is taking it on a downward spiral more each day.

Do NOT allow the enemy of our souls to continue to inject FEAR into your lives!! I stopped him from doing that long ago, and I felt like I could BREATHE again!!

I took back what the enemy stole from me—my eternal life, my joy, my confidence and strength in Christ, and knowing that I am the LORD’S, and NO ONE, especially a piece of filth demon or rebellious angel that got himself kicked out of the Throne Room of Heaven, was going to steal, kill or destroy anything from me ever again, in the Name of Jesus!!

LOVE is what conquers the evil, the HATRED, the prejudice, the anger, bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness in this life!

Rid yourselves of those demonic fiery darts, along with FEAR, and you too, will take back YOUR life that the Lord God meant for you to have, and to live for Him, and to bless you and others with! You will feel like a thousand pounds came off of you, when you leave all that demonic junk at the foot of the Cross, and start to LIVE for Christ, LOVE one another, and DEFEAT the devil by speaking out THE LIVING Rhema WORD in your life!!

NO FEAR—kick it out!! No torments from it anymore—only FREEDOM to live the life WE ALL were meant to live, for the Eternal Godhead, for HIS glory, and for the salvation of souls!

“Ye that LOVE the LORD, hate evil…” Ps. 97:10

Fight Back by Praying in the Spirit Against the Works of Darkness!

We who profess to be believers in Christ, are to EXPOSE the lies, deceit, the theives, those who pretend to be good, but by their fruits they are truly known, murderers, those who plot and scheme evil things against us, etc.

However, do not take these situations, beloved, into your own hands—hand them over to the Lord God in prayer. Use the Living Rhema (spoken) Word of God to pray against such evil that obviously exists in this world. Prayers are going up to the Lord as how to deal with all this evil—so here once agai, is the ANSWER to those prayers and questions.

By the way, it is not that there is MORE evil these days—it has always been here, since the days of Cain killing Abel(as far as the first humans are concerned); it’s just been hidden from us, for those who perpetrate the evil wanted it kept secret. Now they do not even care anymore—what used to be done secretly in the darkness, is now being done out in the open for all to see.

YOUR job, beloved of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is to wage spiritual warfare against such evil spirits, with the POWER and AUTHORITY the Lord God gave you to use.

He also will hold ALL of us children accountable for taking up arms in prayer against such evil, and yes, speaking OUT about it as well, so do it in obedience to the Lord as He wills it.

The Lord God Himself said, “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay them in DUE TIME, that their foot may slide: the Day of destruction is at hand, and the time makes haste to come” (Deut. 32:35).

Let Him deal with destroying them altogether, if they choose to remain in their sins. In Matthew 10:28 the Lord Jesus said, “And fear not them which are able to kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: rather fear HIM Who is able to destroy both soul AND body in Hell.”

Remember what the Lord Jesus said, “Pray for them which persecute you…”

Also, “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the Prophets which were before you” (Matt.5:44, 10-11).

Are we any better than the Prophets of old, or the saints that have gone before us, that have suffered so greatly, and have even been martyred for the Faith? Absolutely not. Then we should expect the same may happen to us, if it is the Lord’s will (see 2Tim. 3:12).

The Holy Spirit said to me some days ago, “It is not how you entered into the world that is important, neither is it how you exit, but WHAT YOU DID with your time while you were HERE.”

He said that to me because the evil spirits once in a while like to remind me that I was a product of an affair—that is how I came into this world; but that did not matter to the Lord—what mattered to HIM was calling and choosing ME unto HIMSELF (Isaiah 43:1), to serve Him.

So do not let those vile demonic beasts make you feel worthless—for GOD has PURPOSED YOU for HIMSELF and HE loved you enough to DIE for you, taking YOUR sins upon HIMSELF (1Cor. 15:3; Gal. 1:4; Rom. 4:25; 1Jn 2:2; 1Peter 2:24), so that you and I, and all others who accept Jesus as Messiah and King, would have a way back to the FATHER God, and most importantly, ETERNAL LIFE with HIM.

✨✨One last very important note:

Remember that it is NOT the person (human spirit) who you are fighting against, but the EVIL SPIRITS behind and within the person (again, look up 2Cor. 10:3-5). THIS is a SPIRITUAL WAR you are seeing play out (manifesting) in the PHYSICAL world.

If you have trouble believing this, I suggest you take it to prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you in further understanding and discernment of it all. My “job” is to INFORM and WARN on all that is going on, and to point out the Biblical truths of what we all see happening; the rest is up to you, beloved, whether or not you choose to believe, or resist the Lord God and His Word.

The LORD Is On Our Side—We Will NOT Fear!

Sometimes, it is just best to allow the Scriptures to do all the “talking”, especially in these troubled times. We need reminders what God already has said in His Word what was to happen in these Last Days.

These are the verses that were put on my heart this morning, after a long overnight “prayer session”–

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.

Anochi shoresh David—I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star.”—Rev. 22:16

“And Jesus answered them and said, Take heed no man deceive you.”

“and ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not trouble: for ALL these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

“All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

—Matthew 24:4,6,8

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in ME you might have Peace. In the world (system) you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; Ani nitzachti et ha olam —

I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.”—Jn. 16:33

Praise God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—the Eternal Godhead—Elohim, for HE has ALREADY redeemed us—all WE have to do, is seek Him, ACCEPT Him as Lord and Savior of our Lives, and ask for forgiveness of our sins. He will instruct you, direct you (Ps. 32:8; Jn. 16:13) and guide you from there.

Are you ready and willing?

Seek Him while He may still be found.—Is. 55:6-7🙏🏼✡️📖✝️

He IS the “I Am”—Dare to Believe in Him!

It takes faith to believe in a God Who, for the most part, we do not see physically. I say “for the most part”, because Jesus, Who is the Second Person of the Trinity/God, has not only spent 33 years on this Earth, but also has appeared as “Theophanies” or “Christophanies” in the OT as well. But He hasn’t stopped there. There has been numerous accounts throughout the centuries, of the Lord Jesus appearing to people, and at times, even speaking to them.

I am one of those, when I was very young, although He said nothing to me that night, but only smiled at me for a few minutes, before He walked away. I have heard the Voice of the Lord years later, because I asked to audibly hear it. I read the account of the Prophet Samuel in the OT, and I wanted that experience. I heard the Spirit speak to me many times to my spirit, but this one time, He granted that I heard Him audibly. I have seen my Guardian Angels, and many more, at one time or another.*

I have also encountered the disgusting, vile evil spirits—I’ve seen them, smelled them, heard them, felt them. But then again, I’ve had the “Spiritual Warfare” card dealt to me by the Holy Spirit, to wage warfare against such vile creatures in prayer.

The Lord has shown Himself over and over again, for us to BELIEVE that He IS Who He says He is in His Word. He knows our weak minds and spirits—He knows we need “proof”, and He’s given it.

NOW it’s our time to face that truth—the truth that HE IS the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, and NO MAN comes to the Father but by HIM (Jn 14:6). You may not (need to)have all the experiences that some of us had—your faith may be that much stronger, or what He calls you to do, may not require for you to see and hear as some of us have.

Having faith in the Lord Jesus, and BELIEVING before seeing, is all He is asking of us to do. He IS the one and only “I AM”, and He WILL be coming back, “For God is not a man that He should lie…” (Numbers 23:19)

*You can find out more about my faith walk in my book, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH”–it is available on Amazon in either Kindle or paperback format.

I’m finally a Published Author!

Well it finally happened–I’m a published Author!! I’ve been working on the first of my three-book series, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH” for the past few years; it has taken that long BECAUSE of all the craziness that happened in my life that you’ll read about in these books.

I am just another “nobody” with no money, who is living off of the provisions that the Lord God sends me–that was part of this whole “faith walk” to begin with. I had to surrender all to the Lord , and follow Him wholeheartedly, as He put me back on the Path that He intended for me all along. The finances, the “love of my life”, a place to live, a job, etc., all were to be handed over to the Lord Jesus, and have Him do with (or without!) them in my life, as He so pleased.

When it came to the publishing part of the journey, I did a lot of research, and quickly found out I did not have the funds it was going to take, to have an editor, or a publishing house to pick me up and help me get this done. It was all having to be done on my own, and I am not tech savvy in the least! But at this point, I had no choice–I had to continue to be obedient to the Lord, and get this done and published, so I did the best I could with it.

The cover part was easy–my sister in the Lord Patricia Hoffman, is an artist and sculpter. You can look her up on Facebook, and see her work. She offered to paint a scene that had to do with the very journey I’m on, and when she was finished with it, I absolutely loved it, and that is how I managed to have an awesome cover for my books!

Both the first of the series and the companion devotional can be purchased on Amazon.com in either Kindle or paperback format.

It wasn’t my decision to be so “open” with my story, but the Lord reminded me that:

1)There are several people in the Bible who would have rather not let us know what they did or said in their lives,

2)It helped some of us to learn from their mistakes,

3)He alone is the Judge of all, so being obedient to His instructions to “Write it all down”, is what He asked of me, and I did it. Obedience is KEY, as I have learned.

I pray that these books bless you and help to encourage you on your own faith walk in the dark with the Lord God. There will be a pattern of ongoing tests, trials, tears, but also spiritual growth as the second and third books are written and published. I hope to have the second one finished by the beginning of next year, in between finishing up my last semester of college and getting my Bachelor’s Degree! Finally!

I appreciate it if you would “like” and follow me for more of my blog posts, and to keep up with all that is going on with the book series. I do plan to write other books and devotionals as well, separate from this series, so make sure you subscribe to get my blog in your email.

Thank you all that purchase the books and/or who read my blog post. I look forward to hearing what you think about them. You can email me at JeannetteElizabeth@faithinthedarkhome.com. God bless.

Listen to the Voice that Speaks and Shakes both Heaven and Earth

Our eyes and ears must be “tuned” to the Voice that speaks from Heaven. He has sent many a person to inform and warn in the past, and still does to this day; but one day, it will end, and the LORD will shake not only the Earth, but the Heavens. All the inhabitants of the Earth, be they for or against Him, shall know it is Him.

But all that HE has established, shall NOT be shaken or moved.

1 Samuel 2:9 states, “He will KEEP the feet of His saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.”

Psalm 9:19 says, “ARISE, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in Thy sight.”

Let us also be comforted and encouraged with the words of Jeremiah 1:19, as we see so much evil seemingly prevailing in this world today:

“And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I AM with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.”

Ut in Omnibus Glorificetur Dei

“So that in all things God may be glorified.”–St. Benedict

(Ref. 1 Peter 4:11)

God’s Word is So True, Alive and Active, the Enemy of Our Souls Doesn’t Want Us to Read It!

I know I usually write about my Journey and how God is leading me step by step, day by day in this current “Season of Waiting” that I’m in. But because of something that happened to me a little over a day ago pertaining to God and the validity of His Word, I must make mention of it here. It’s burning up inside of me, and usually when that sort of thing happens, I know it needs to be “said” to the masses.

First off, I’m going to say that God doesn’t necessarily need to me to “fight” His battles, when it comes to letting people know about the validity of His word, and how it’s been preserved over these thousands of years. His Word is exalted above even His Name (Psalm 138:2). But, I AM His daughter, one of many, and since my very eternal LIFE depends on His Word being TRUE and learning (some of it the hard way!) to adhere to the Bible, by reading it, studying it, and LIVING it out, I DO stand up for Him and His Word, when others try to either trash it, make fun of it, misunderstand it, twist it, or worse yet, try to put their belief’s traditions, rules, regulations, etc., ABOVE what God’s Word says(see Matthew 15:3;Mark 7:8-9, 13). The apostle Peter and the others with him said in Acts 5:29, that “we ought to obey God rather than men.” They knew full well not to take man’s traditions and put them above God and His Word.

I myself came out of a church that did exactly that; I’m not saying traditions are bad, but when they start to ursurp God and His Word, then that places that “faith” in a very dangerous position. They’re heading down the road to being an apostate, or worse yet, a false religion or cult. That is NOT where one wants to find one’s self, at the end of their days, realizing that they “did it all wrong” by following in the footsteps of Adam and Eve, who believed the lie from Satan, and allowed DOUBT of God’s word to creep in, and basically destroy all hopes of mankind having eternal communion with God, until JESUS (thank You, Lord!) stepped in (see Gen. 3:15, first Messianic prophecy), and took our place at the Cross!❤️✝️ If we call Jesus Lord and Savior of our lives, and read, study and live by the Bible, we shouldn’t let the enemy of our souls deceive us, nor the precious souls that are still lost in this world, letting them believe the lies of Satan, thinking that God and His Word are not true, and cannot be trusted. Let me explain further by going a little more into my Journey that I’ve been writing about in my blog:

During those 30 years on my “crooked path”, the Lord was still with me; I was called and chosen by Him, to “work” for Him, and use whatever gifts, talents, skills, and abilities He’s given me, for the betterment of the Kingdom, and for His glory and honor. Once I finally was taken “off the shelf”, back in December, 2016 and decided to wholeheartedly follow Him, giving Him total Reign over everything in my life, including my relationships (which was a HUGE thing for me to let go of!), THEN, and only then, did I finally <<click>> into His “Wheel”, and became a cog that has been “fitting” smoothly, going where He goes, doing whatever He wants me to do, and THAT is the main reason why I ‘ve seen and experienced so many “God Winks”—walking with FAITH in the DARK, holding His Hand, produces those “God Winks”—it’s one of God’s ways of “speaking” to me (and other believers!), letting me know that He sees and hears all that I and all other believers are doing and going through, and from time to time, sends us such “notes” of encouragment. They’ve answered many a question I’ve asked, calmed me down when I was fretting, quieted my spirit when I was afraid or starting to think He wasn’t listening, AND even strengthened me much during this whole Journey, giving me the stamina and determination to continue onward. Some of these “God Winks” are the Scriptures that I’ve seen in my daily devotionals that have “fit” exactly to the “T” hundreds of times now over the past two years, moving me forward in my FAITH walk, letting me know over and over again, just how ALIVE and active His Word is in my life, and it’s just one of the ways how God “speaks” to each one of His children that are listening to Him. I know that He’ll continue to reveal Himself more to me as the time goes on, and have the pieces of this “Journey” puzzle fit together, until this “Season of Waiting” that I’ve been in, comes to an end. Until then, as long as I continue to walk according to His Will and purpose for my life, whatever He is “weaving” for me and everyone else involved in and around my life, I WILL continue to see and experience these “God Winks”.

Trials, tribulation, and temptation are also part of the Journey; along with that, is the Spiritual Warfare portion—not my favorite part of this whole thing, that’s for sure🙄😒. I wish THAT could be left out. But, Satan hasn’t stopped stealing, killing, and destroying (John 10:10), and won’t, until the Lord Jesus throws him into the Pit for 1,000 years (Rev. 20:3), and then finally, into the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10). All those who never came to the Lord, and who were judged at the White Throne Judgment (Rev. 20:11), according to their WORKS (Rev. 20:12-13), will also meet their end there. Until the DAY that I am HOME with the Lord, I have to endure such Warfare; I am not the only one—EVERY single person that names the Name of Christ, if they are truly serving Him, comes under such satanic attacks. But, we have to recognize what is a spiritual attack, and not allow ourselves to be deceived into thinking it’s just people that are the enemy.

Human spirits, as stiffnecked and stubborn as they are🙄, are the ONLY ones that can be redeemed, hence the reason why the enemy of our Souls keeps making the majority of the Earth’s population think that HUMANS are the problem, their RELIGIONS and BELIEFS are the problem, their POLITICAL VIEWS are the problem, etc., when all along it’s HIM—Satan, that’s being ALLOWED to make all the confusion and confrontations that occur. Hatred, Fear, Pride, Arrogance, Dread, belief in False gods, etc., end up producing Sickness, Disease, and Death, in most of the world’s population, and it’s all because we’re sitting here, blaming each other, when HE’S been the instigator the whole time. He’s not called “the accuser of the brethren” (Rev. 20:10) for nothing. But he doesn’t just go after the believers. Those who couldn’t care less about God, the Bible, and believe nothing about the spiritual realm or the afterlife are also widely targeted by Satan.

Humans that don’t believe in the spiritual realm, are just the type of people Satan and his demons are counting on, so that he can continue to confuse and confound mankind to NOT believe in the Lord God Almighty, Who “just so happened” to be his BOSS (Lucifer was THE Worship Leader in Heaven—he was the one that was responsible for the Music—God gave him that job, and as soon as he got kicked out of Heaven, he PERVERTED all the gifts given to him, and used them all for EVIL henceforth). HE is the main reason why we have so many different religions, false gods, even “Christian” sects!! Anything and everything to point in the opposite direction of the Lord God Almighty, is what Satan has done, and we as blind men, have followed him, and some will continue, right into the Lake of Fire.

“If you can’t beat them, join them”, was a popular saying as I grew up. Well, it makes sense when it comes to what Satan and his cohorts, the demons (some of them fallen angels) have come up with, especially all the false religions, but even better still, are those “Christian” sects that are SO CLOSE to the real Biblical born-again New Life in Christ, that with just a “tweak” here and a “switch” there, some people have fallen for what SEEMS like Biblical Christianity, but in reality, they are almost as lost as the unsaved. HENCE the reason why every believer in Christ NEEDS to know the Bible, backwards and forwards! Every non-believer should NOT just “dismiss” it as hogwash, or some mystical “mumbo-jumbo”, without checking it out for themselves! Put it to the test, people! SEEK God out (Deut. 4:29; Psalm 14:2; Matt. 6:33)! Sincerely CALL out to Him, and He WILL answer you (Jer. 33:3; Psalm 18:6; 107:27-28; Psalm 34:17; Romans 10:9-13)! The LAST thing that Satan wants a human spirit to do, is to call on the VERY ONE that he used to praise and worship himself!!

Scripture says we have to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matt. 10:16, NKJV). 1 Peter 5:8 tells us to “be sober, be vigilant, because your advesary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” Jesus told us flat out, that HE was the ONLY way, the TRUTH and the LIFE (John 14:6), and that NO man, NO religion, NO cult, NO “ism” or any other way is going to lead mankind back to the Father, but by JESUS and HIM alone. I’m going to use caps here, folks, because it’s THAT important—we’re talking your ETERNAL SOULS, here: IF IT DOESN’T POINT BACK TO JESUS BEING THE LORD AND SAVIOR OF YOUR LIFE; IF HE ISN’T BEING CALLED “THE SECOND PERSON OF THE GODHEAD” (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit); IF HE ISN’T BEING RECOGNIZED AS “THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD” (Colossians 1:15), and that after you TESTED THE SPIRITS (1 John 4:1-3), to see whether or not that particular “faith” you want to get into, is the REAL THING, and they tell you in one way or another, that Jesus is a good or great man, or Prophet, or even goes as far as to say that He is the Son of God, but a LESSER god😳🚩, or that the god they serve never HAD a Son, or spoke about Him, or TO Him (Genesis 1:26; 11:7; Psalm 2:7, 12; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22)—or that He was only a spirit creature, and was never really fully human AND divine at the same time (God in human form = Immanuel = “God with us”) as it is written in Isaiah 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Zeph. 3:17; Matthew 28:20; John 1:14; 14:9,16-17, THEN you may be getting into something that has nothing to do with the real God of the Bible, or His Son, Jesus Christ, or the Holy Spirit, Who is the Comforter, Counselor, and Who dwells in each and every believer (see John chap. 14-16 about the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives!)!

Satan will do whatever it takes, to make God look like the liar, and not him! Messing around with God’s Word is a very serious offense. The Lord God had it written in Deut. 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19, commanding us to not add to, nor delete from His Word. He has been able to protect His Sovereign Word from every enemy that has tried to eradicate it one way or another. He will NEVER let that happen; it is written in Isaiah 40:8, “The grass withers; the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands FOREVER.” Matthew 24:35 also states (Jesus Himself speaking), “Heaven and Earth may pass away, but My words will not pass away.”(ESV) God has protected His word throughout the thousands of years; He wants us to get to KNOW HIM and His Son, Jesus, by reading, studying, PRAYING, calling out to Him, and living out His Word in our daily lives, just as I am doing in my FAITH walk. We need to learn to TRUST GOD more than man; Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of man that He should repent: has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” (AKVJ) Satan has done an “excellent” job unfortunately, duping most of us at one point or another (even believers!), to NOT take God’s word so seriously. That’s a HUGE “nail in the coffin” for him if one not only starts to BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ, but then TAKES GOD AT HIS WORD—that kills Satan “on the spot”!

Trusting IN God, OBEYING Him, learning to lean on Him, humbling ourselves before Him, meditating on His Word, getting to know Him better, and seeing supernatural Holy Spirit-inspired “God Winks”, or whatever you the reader may want to call them when God answers your prayers—all these things I have been doing faithfully for the past two plus years, and NOT ONCE has He failed me!! NOT ONCE have I gone hungry, or had any other needs not met. Once a person (like myself) hands their ENTIRE LIVES over to the Lord God, and starts to serve HIM, it can only BE a “win-win” situation! Oh, the trials, tribulations temptations, and occasional bouts of Spiritual Warfare will be there—it goes with the “territory”. But God has given us His Word to learn more about Him, and gain wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; also for us to grow, mature and use to fight the evil in this world with—“All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be COMPLETE, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We ARE overcomers of evil when we have God on our side!!

God has also given us this Word so we can live out our PURPOSE here on Earth, and find out what God’s WILL is for our lives. He has SOVEREIGNLY made a plan for each one of us (Jeremiah 29:11); but it is up to US to find out what that plan is. The only way we’re going to find out, is if we CALL upon the Name of the Lord, and ASK, SEEK, and KNOCK (Matt.7:7).

Do NOT allow that spirit of DOUBT that got to Adam and Eve(Genesis 3:1), get to you! Satan is a LIAR, and the father of lies(Jonn 8:44)! LIVE OUT the Purpose that God Pre-destined for you! You are PRECIOUS in His sight (Isaiah 43:4)! Your life COUNTS to Him; learn to be a blessing to others, and give God all the honor and glory due His Name. Be blessed. ❤️✝️

Moving Forward in My Faith Walk

If there’s one thing I hate doing, is something I’m not too savvy with, and like any other human spirit past, present or future, having to depend on something or someone else in order to get things done. Like this blog, for instance. I’ve been writing my Journey about my “Season of Waiting” for the past two plus years, because it was the Lord’s will for me to “WRITE IT DOWN”, so others can also benefit from it when I got around to writing a BOOK😳 about it. I was like, “Ok, Lord, a book, huh? Alrighty then.” Then after a year passed, and I thought by then the Lord would have “wrapped things up” with this Journey that He had me on, things just got deeper, tougher, way more spiritually intense than I’ve ever dealt with before, and that one book I thought I was journaling towards, now will be a “series” of books talking about my “Season of Waiting”.🙄 Oh, by the way, get used to the emojis—they’ve become part of what I write and express how I feel at times, and also are “markers” for certain events that have happened to me along the way. So here I am, now being “told” it would be a “good idea😳” to start blogging my journal posts NOW, before the book gets published, so others can see, read, hear and start to relate to what I’m doing, and how the Lord is working in, for, with, to, and through me, throughout this Journey. So come along with me, and I’ll start to fill you in on what’s been going on in the past couple of years, and work up till present day. If you follow me regularly, and read my blogs faithfully, you’ll start to “see” the patterns of how God works in my life, and others as well. He’s been “weaving” this beautiful Tapestry, and it’s amazing how many people are involved, and how I am being used as just one of the many “threads” in His Tapestry, to touch other’s lives while introducing them to Him, and/or bringing them to a closer, more intimate relationship with Him and His Son, Jesus Christ, my Savior, Lord, Redeemer, and Best Friend. I’m not going to lie, or “sugar-coat” anything; just going to lovingly “tell it like it is”, or how the Lord tells me like it is, and just relay the message while He works on my life, and through it. There may be really hard “sayings” (John 6:60), that some may not like to hear, or just that it’s hard to believe, but STICK WITH ME; as a Believer in Christ, and experiencing quite a bit of the Spiritual and Supernatural side of things over the course of my 50+ years on this Earth, I haven’t encountered as MUCH as I have, since handing EVERYTHING over to the Lord God, back in November, 2016. Since then, it’s been a whirlwind of events! No wonder He told me right from the beginning of my Journey, to “WRITE IT DOWN”(that’s not “yelling”, by the way; it’s how I write when the Lord aka the Holy Spirit speaks to me, so it stands out from what I say😉), so that’s what I’ve been doing, and now, you all get to be a part of this Journey with me. I’m DARING TO BELIEVE God can RENEW, RESTORE, REBUILD, and REDIRECT our lives, even if we messed up like I did. I will be using such things as what I’ve learn to call “God Winks”, thanks to certain authors explaining what they are, like Squire Rushnell, and Cheryl McKay. I’ll go into more of that in my next blog. Until then, if you are one for adventure, but also need a little “kick” to get things going, well then, you’re in the right place! So stay tuned, and let’s move forward in FAITH together, as God leads and guides me every single day, holding my hand in His, as I learn to WALK IN THE DARK WITH FAITH. Be blessed.
