It Will take Extreme Measures to Save Many from Their Extremely Sinful Ways!

This is what I heard while praying and speaking to the Father this morning about all that is going on; about all those who, especially even my own loved ones, who no longer even speak to me.
Their hearts have hardened because they have let the fiery darts (Eph. 6:16) of the evil one take over their minds.

Every one of us, especially those who consider themselves to be sons and daughters of God will be held accountable for NOT “casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God” because they did NOT “bring into captivity EVERY THOUGHT to the OBEDIENCE of Christ” (1 Cor. 10:5).

Those who disregard God’s Word think that they will not be held accountable for any of this.


They are GRAVELY wrong.

They will not just lie in a grave or in an urn somewhere; they WILL stand before an Almighty God, His Son, Jesus Christ, AND the Holy Spirit, and give an account of the very lives we lived (Rom. 14:12; 1 Pet. 4:5).

Take the words that the Holy Spirit said here, seriously; VERY seriously.

Because there COMES a Day—SOONER than one thinks, that we ALL will be in front of Him Who is a “consuming fire” (Heb. 12:29).

“See that you refuse not Him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused Him that spake on Earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from HIM that speaks from HEAVEN: whose Voice then shook the Earth: but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not the Earth only, but also HEAVEN.”
Hebrews 12:25-27

BUT, I will leave you with this hopeful consoling thought:
The LORD is merciful (Deut. 4:31; 2 Chron. 30:9; Ps. 103:8; 116:5; 117:2; Joel 2:13)—He WILL continue to try and turn your evil hearts toward Him, even when all tribulation HELL breaks through, and hope seems to be lost.


He will continue to be there, waiting for you to “call upon the name of the Lord to be saved” (Joel 2:32; Rom. 10:13; 1Cor. 1:9; Is. 65:1; 2Pet. 1:10-11; Acts 2:38).

Another New Book Available at Amazon!!

My new illustrated devotional is now LIVE on Amazon! I used a beautiful picture for the cover, and you will find many other colorful pictures with Scriptures and inspirational quotes on each of the pages with the devotionals.

The book can be purchased through Amazon in either hardcover, paperback, or Kindle format.

This book would make a beautiful gift for someone, and the devotionals are no more than a 5-10 minute read. It is a great way to start your day, during a mid-day break, or before you settle in for the night, to read a little bit of Scripture, then meditate and pray on it.

I hope you will check it out! I do also have the first of my three book series, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH” for sale. The 12-month devotional is based off of my first year and a half of my faith journey, with Scripture verses that stood and spoke out to me during that time. Just look up the above mentioned title and “12 Month Devotional” to find it.

I am trying to hopefully finish the second of my three-book faith journey series (the subtitle will be, “A Season of Trials, Temptations and (Many!) Tears”), before the end of this month, especially before my fall grad classes start again. Once they do, that takes up most of my time and energy. I will make another post when the book is available.

Thank you so much in advance if you do go ahead and purchase any of my books; right now, it is my only income because of the amount of schoolwork I have to endure. But I realize the more I write, the more I am enjoying it. It definitely is proving to be something the Lord wanted me to do all along—I just did not initially think I had it in me to write a book, and now I just completed my third one; amazing what a person can do when they allow the Spirit to move within them and use the gifts that He gives to us. Not only does it end up blessing me and honoring Him, but it also blesses those who read the books and get inspired and encouraged by them. God bless!

No Matter the Losses Here, Your Eternal Gain is Jesus!

BUT, realize when you do all these things, it IS for certain that you will:
Lose friends like Jesus did.
Lose family members like Jesus did.
Have people ignore you like they did to Jesus.
Have those who were the closest to you, as best friends, even, no longer want to talk to you or see you anymore, like what they did to Jesus (that actually happened to Joseph and Mary, His parents, as well).
Have people hate you for no reason at all, like they hated Jesus.
Have people ostracize you, like they did Jesus.
Have people tell lies about you, like they did to Jesus.
Have some want to even harm you or kill you, like how they wanted to do to Jesus.
Have some put curses on you, like they did with Jesus.
Have people not include you in family gatherings anymore, because your love for Jesus.
Have people try to silence you because of your love for Jesus.

The devil moves people to see you as their enemy, because you put God and His Word first in your life, as Jesus did.
They will persecute you, because they persecuted Jesus.

No matter how many times you reach out,
No matter how many times you try to let them know you still love them,
No matter how many times you tell them you miss them and want to stay in touch with them,
No matter how successful and accomplished you can be-if you love Jesus, most will have hardly anything to do with you.

But did not Jesus tell us that would all happen? He did.
Is it still worth following Him, then, to lose all those who would rather not have anything to do with you, because of your love for the Lord Jesus, His Father, and the Holy Spirit?
Is it REALLY all worth it?

YES, IT IS.

I do not like it; it breaks my heart that loved ones have nothing to do with me anymore. And if you are a follower of Christ, it WILL happen to you too.

BUT I will STILL go on, loving, caring, praying, forgiving, being patient with and serving others, even if while I’m here on this Earth, I do not see the “fruit” of my labors. I will see them fulfilled One Day, when my Lord soon calls me Home, and honestly, that is really all that matters.

Jesus IS all that matters to me.

Because as HE hung on that Cross, I was ALL that MATTERED to HIM.

My Book is On Sale!

Hello, everyone! I hope your summer is going well. I wanted to reach out to you all with a couple of updates: First, to let you know that I am having a sale on the first book of the series until this Friday; it is selling for $4.99 on Amazon, regularly $11.99!

It is a great time to purchase this book, because now that my grad classes are finally done for the summer (thank God!), hopefully I will be finishing the second book of the series and get that up and running on Amazon by September.

You may purchase the book either in paperback, Kindle, or now even in a hardcover edition! I have no other income right now because of the heavy school load, so every dollar that I make helps me continue to pay my bills.

Thanks to all of you who have either purchased one or both books (see pic below re: devotional I have up on Amazon as well), or will purchase one or more of them in the future. It has meant the world to me, and I have enjoyed hearing from quite a few of you about how much you can either relate to some of the life situations and /or how the books have encouraged you in some way. It is such a blessing to me to know that!

I am also working on a book about the Holy Spirit, His role in the Triune Godhead, and how He should be working in believers’ lives, but many in the Body of Christ unfortunately do not pay Him any mind. It will be called, “Inform and Warn”—exactly what the Lord had instructed me to do these past five plus years since I have been on this faith journey with Him. I pray that I will be finished with this book prior to the end of the year.

And last but not least, I have always wanted to put out a pictorial book of some inspirational devotions /short prayers that I posted over the past few years on social media. Many people have commented on how the posts were very encouraging to them; other posts being very straightforward with Scripture, reminding the reader to take a stand with their faith, honor God, and not back down. I hope to have that one up on Amazon within a couple of weeks!

I hope you will take time out to check out the books, take advantage of the sale price (only till this Friday, 7/8/2022!) and also to look forward to my future publications! Thank you all so much, and may God bless you and your families as you too, continue on your own personal journeys, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH”!

Allow the Word of God to be a CONSUMING FIRE In Your Life

Quote taken from The Catholic Company, “Your Morning Offering”

This is short and sweet, but as soon as I read today’s quote from the daily devotional I received in my inbox this morning, I knew I had to share it with everyone.

We, the Body of Christ = Church—NEED to have this fire kindled in our lives each and every day!

The days are coming, and actually are already here, that the people will long to hear the Word of the Lord. The enemy will do ANYTHING to keep us from hearing it by distracting us as much as possible, and also will keep us from having that relationship with the LORD God, and learning His Word.

Be a holy rebel—be the ONE that the devil hates, and allow God’s consuming fire to burn all that keeps you from getting closer to Him. Then allow Him to grow and mature you into the strong servant warrior of Christ you were meant to be!
