Can you hear me now?

can you hear 2

I feel this is what God is saying to us today:

Can you hear me now? Did you get my message? Many years ago I inspired some men to write messages from me to you. In these messages I told you how this world began and about the first humans. I told you who I am and I gave you my laws and commandments. Then later I presented my only Son to you and told you about the mission I sent Him on….for you. I shared how you could be put right with me and be with me forever.

I asked you to tell others about this great news and how to bring them into our fold. Hello…can you hear me now? Do we have a bad connection? Is there interference? Have we been cut off?

You say you don’t even have a smart phone (bible) yet. Oh… you don’t use it much. Then you won’t be able to hear me now.

What will happen if you don’t get my message? Well…it’s happening.

What can you do?

  1. “You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
  3. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
  4. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
  5. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.  Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.
  6. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
  7. “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
  8.  Do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
  9. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
  10. Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.

I’m missing many body parts.  I’m missing ovaries, uterus, 1 breast, many teeth and some of my hair.  I pray that I can keep what’s left… LOL! Psalm 139:13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

The rest of me that’s left is wrinkling, shrinking, drying out and not functioning properly.  I must sound like a hot mess to you…but I tell you this….this outward wo-man might be decaying, but my inner man is being renewed every day!  Thank God for the daily updating of my spirit!!!

2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

I’ve suffered with so many physical ailments including the big C…cancer.  I’m still suffering right now physically from other illnesses.  Some days are extremely difficult for me…but I tell you one…

What church do you attend?



We are the Church of Jesus Christ

Our answer should be…I am the church!  All of us body of believers are the church.

Ephesians 1:22-23 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

The meaning of the church in the Greek is the whole body of Christian believers. It could also mean the Christian community.

I believe the church is God’s children as a group… who do also assemble themselves to worship God.

In my heart and mind this is what the church of Jesus Christ looks like to me:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.

We belong to Jesus Christ and He will come back and take us all….as a group! We are His bride…we are the church.

As His church we were all given instructions and we all have a job to do:church 3

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19″Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Ever since I became a committed Christian in 1984 over 30 years ago…all I have thought about is souls. I was so happy about what God did in my heart and how Jesus put me right with God. I was so happy to be rid of my original sin and for the first time in my life I felt clean inside. I was so happy to know that I was going to heaven that I wanted to shout it from the roof tops. But instead I have tried to talk about Jesus to whoever I meet and all of my family. I have cried buckets of tears for souls. I feel why should I just get my ticket to heaven, be happy about it and sit back and watch others be destined for hell. Everyday all day I try to figure out a way to share my faith…..I am the church after all this is my job!!!

I have attended and been a member of many places of worship. For me…at this point in my life…I realize that I am the church and I need to be about my Fathers business of making disciples. I’ve learned a lot from being in places of worship but things in this world have shifted and not in a good way. Every morning I listen to the news for a few moments and it’s always breaking news of some tragedy. Things are heating up and many are perishing in group disasters and accidents. My first thought is what about their souls!!!!  Were they ready to met their maker?

church 2

I have found a place to worship with fellow believers …but I need to be out there looking for souls. I need to be speaking up and standing up for truth. I am a soldier in Gods army…I am the church. Jesus is the head of the church and He has given me orders and I intend to carry them out. Psalms 40:8 I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart.”

I look around at this world and I use to think I wanted the money, fame and fortune. But over time I have come to my senses. At this age of 63 years old my focus has shifted to be all about Jesus. I still enjoy family, fun and I still laugh…but my main focus is God’s will for my life which God has expressly laid out in the bible. I am the church! Jesus has work for me to accomplish for Him and then He will come back for all of us…His church and He’ll take all of us home.

I need for my brothers and sisters in Christ to really think about who we really are. We are not a denomination…we may belong to one though. We are the church and we have been called out by Jesus Christ himself and have been told to separate ourselves from this world. We are told to go out and help save others. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. (Matthew 9:37) Why should we do this? Because if we’re not planting, sowing and reaping it could mean the eternal death of a person’s soul. But there is a way for them to escape this.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23) Eternal death is waiting for our loved ones, family, friends and strangers. This is why we must work hard in the vineyard while there is daylight.

Not even the gates of hell can stop us from snatching souls away from eternal damnation!! We the church can rescue people like we were rescued. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. (Matthew 16:18)

Jesus has the fullness of God in Him and Jesus is the head over us the church. We have the power of the Holy Spirit at work in us and we are anointed to do the Lords work. Be active in your place of worship and be active out in the street, your home, your community and on your job. You’ve been activated for service when you accepted Jesus Christ as you Lord and Savior. God has His will for your life and that is to be the church for His Son who sacrificed His life for us. He didn’t sacrifice His life for a denomination…He sacrificed His life personally for you….His bride…His church.

In the Old Testament God dwelled in a tabernacle which was built to hold presence and His glory. But after Jesus death and resurrection….we were given a gift of the Holy Spirit and when we became believers and were born again and the Holy Spirits now lives inside of us. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19)

church 4

We are unique…we are inhabited by the Holy Spirit of God! We are different. Our minds have been renewed and we have a united purpose as the church of God. To worship God, to put Him first and to make disciples. We are these unique humans beings called the church. A whole group of believers in Jesus Christ. When we start seeing ourselves as a whole group and not separate entities we will begin to work together to advance the kingdom of God down here on earth. United we stand divided we fall and divided we fail.

It hurts when I have left a church and never hear from most of the past parishioners again. Why? Are we not the body of Christ his church? Does it matter where we worship? Does it matter that we are brothers and sisters in Christ and I may have left your church but not Jesus Christ. Aren’t we all still part of the vine?

Until we see ourselves as the church we will always be divided as a body of Jesus followers. What does the world (unbelievers) see when they look at us? Do they see a united church?

I love all my brothers and sister in Christ!!!!!

Father God….Thank you for creating us and thank you for adopting us into your family. Help us to understand that we are a family and we all are your children. Forgive us for the squabbling. Please help us to get more of you in us and get your mind on things. Help your word do its work in us so that we will be more obedient to your will. Help those who need to humble themselves under your authority so that their lights might shine much brighter. I pray for unity in the body. God the church needs help, direction and revival. Lord help me do my part for forgive me for any attitude I might have hidden in my heart. God…help the church…please! In Jesus name…Amen.

Mass Shootings…What can be done?



Another campus killing! An eye witness to the shootings told this story: The shooter asked his victims this question:…“Are you a Christian and if you are a Christian stand up?” And they would stand up and he shot them.

Mathew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.shooting 1

Standing up for Jesus! Are we ready to do that at the cost of our own lives? The world hates us because they hate Jesus. Our religious freedom had been being chipped away little by little. Now big chunks are being ripped away.

When we had opportunities to lead someone to Christ…did we?   Have we been salty enough? Have we been a light in a dark world? Have we been silent when we should have spoken up? Did we remember that God wanted to use us to make disciples? Did we plant any seeds? Did we protest when laws were changed that went against biblical teaching?  Were we quiet while they took prayer out of the schools? What about when they began to take down crosses, remove the ten commandments and nativities from public places?  Did we let them take our Christ out of our Christmas celebration and replace it with their Xmas?

What do we do now? It’s not too late to do something.  It’s not too late to be obedient to God. It’s not too late to humble ourselves, pray and seek the face of God. We still have time to stand up!

Start today by repenting if you’ve been a luke warm Christian.  Work on studying the bible and most important….walk closely with God all day every day!!!! This will spark up your spirit and you will be on fire for the Lord. You’ll shine for Jesus!

Come on saints….children of God….we can do this!!  Let’s make our Father God proud of us!

What is the Grace of God?


Grace of God

Grace of God 1

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Early in my walk with the Lord I was facing many difficult trials. When I first started asking God for help I would always come to the scripture verse above. It use to really make me a little mad because I needed some big miracles and all of my problems solved and I thought…all I can get was some….grace? That answer didn’t do it for me at that time. Years later after many trials and as I matured in the Lord…I began to learn how wonderful grace really was for me back then and how important it is in my life now.Grace of God 2

I’ve suffered from a rare illness that has affected my whole life. My mother in law gave me a book that influenced my outlook on going through a chronic illness. It’s called…Asked for Healing Given Grace. So what really is this grace? Most sermons I’ve heard on this subject says grace is unmerited favor and this is a true statement. But I need to have a more comprehensive understanding on what is grace.

The first biblical example of the grace of God is in the beginning of the bible with the very first humans Adam and Eve.

Grace of God 3

God’s Grace

Genesis 1:8-9 They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”

Genesis 1:24The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them

God could have wiped them out for their disobedience but He had mercy on their souls and extended His graciousness. He was so gentle with them. His presence came down to earth to talk to them and He even made them clothes. I think God showed them a great deal of grace and mercy.

Noah found also found grace. Genesis 6:8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD. Mary Jesus mother found it too. Luke 1:30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.

God does not have to be gracious to anyone He doesn’t chose to. But He does extend mercy to all who want to be a part of His life through His Son Jesus Christ.

Exodus 33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

I believe God is saying in this verse that His graciousness is His goodness and kindness. TV portrays gods as being mean or having an evil side because they have power. But that’s man view of a god. Our God is “KIND and GOOD”. (Let’s not forget that He’s just also.)  I don’t think we have the capability of understanding the degree of goodness God is. I think if we did we wouldn’t be as fearful and doubtful as we are at times.

Mark 10:28 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone. Psalms 136:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good….

Jesus Christ declares God as being GOOD!

Exodus 34:6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,

God Himself declares Himself as being… compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—

Grace of God 5

The grace of God is how we have been saved from God’s wrath and it’s a gift to us. This gift was given to us through Jesus Christ death and resurrection.

So as you can see there is quite a lot involved in this “amazing grace”. God is a very complex supernatural being. He has made some knowledge about His attributes and character known to us…but He is still a mystery to us because of the complexity of His overall nature. I have written 7 blog on the holiness of God and I have to admit…after I wrote the last one I was a little…terrified getting a taste of knowing how powerful He is. After studying about His grace….I’m so glad I realize just how loving and gracious He is. For God SO LOVED the world….John 3:16.

There are words that come to my mind about the grace of God:

  1. Loving
  2. Merciful
  3. Graciousness
  4. A Savior
  5. Forgiveness
  6. Favor
  7. Compassion
  8. Faithful
  9. Caring
  10. Shepherd
  11. A covering
  12. Support
  13. Protector
  14. Sustainer
  15. Blessing

Grace is necessary for the human spirit’s survival!!  First of all my soul would have stayed spiritually dead after my death without Gods’ grace. I could not make it every second of every day without God’s grace because life is hard and full of trials. When I was living without God’s grace I was alone, suicidal and searching for meaning in my life. I was rotten inside in my own evilness and moral disobedience to the nature of God. I needed grace like a drug that could heal my sin sickness. Grace was that pill I swallowed to receive God’s gift of grace and healing for my soul.

When I found out that I had cancer…I looked for and received the grace of God and He gave me the support I needed to get through that very scary and difficult time.

Grace is God Himself!! It’s God and all of His POWER involved in our lives!!!  WHEN WE NEED GRACE…WE REALLY NEED GOD!!!!! Do you get it now? We need God! We need who He is! We are nothing without Him and we are nothing without His grace. You cannot take grace and put it in a little box because grace is attached to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. They all contribute to this unique nature of God for overcoming power in our lives.

Grace of God 4

Trying to understand God’s grace or any of the other supernatural things about God is like trying to hold water in your hands without a cup. You know your hand is wet…you can feel the effects but you just can’t hold on to it. I try hard to hold onto the supernatualness of God but it slips away because of my humanity. But inside of me… my spiritman knows that these things are real and available to me. The bible reveals this truth by the power of the Holy Spirit living inside of me.

We may not totally comprehend the grace of God but we can glean enough to apply it to our minds and have peace in our souls. I know that we have this wonder gift of God to cover us all day every day. We are not without His mercy, help and love at all times. We are His Child!!!!! Feel secure in this today. Fear not and have peace in your mind. You have God’s amazing grace!

Glorifying God part two

Jesus glorified3

John 17:1-5 Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.Jesus glorified

When Jesus was on the earth he was a regular human person in a mortal body. He was not Glorified until He asked His Father and then something supernatural happened to Him. God the Father put Him in a special place of honor… a place of the highest esteem over all other beings having all power and Majesty. (It should be noted that Jesus had to give up this place of honor in order for Him to do what He did for us.)

Even with our limited understanding of the full knowledge of Gods power, we know glorified is something great. Jesus should be glorified in our lives and we should bring God glory with our lives. 1 Corinthians 10:3 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

When Jesus was on earth He did everything to glorify His Father in His own life and in His teaching, ministering and preaching. How can we do any less?

God is my Father and Jesus Christ is my Savior. I want people to see them exemplified in my life! I need to be set apart in my moral and spiritual character. In this way I will glorify my Father God.   I have a blessed spiritual life thanks to Jesus giving His life for me. He did this so by His sacrifice I could saved and live a life pleasing to God. . 1 Corinthians 6:20 for ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

In addition to this, by His departure from this life He was able to ask the Father to send the Holy Spirit to us. The Holy Spirit lives inside of us and helps us to be clean inside and live right so that we can glorify Christ. Ephesians 1:13 …..When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit

John 7:39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

So you see…God has provided everything we need so that we can glorify Him in our lives.

Jesus bought God glory by His whole act of obedience in His ministry and personal sacrifice when He was here on earth. Jesus was given back His supernatural glory after He finished his earthly work. God bestowed on His Son the wonderful awesome Glory that can only come from God alone. No other being can ever give Glory besides God himself!!!

Why is this important to dwell on this?   We need to understand who we represent. We need to know how important it is to glorify Our God and His Son in our lives. If we don’t watch our own backs and humble ourselves, if we don’t lift up Jesus and glorify Gods name through our lives this might happen…Psalms 4:2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods. This is the at that point repentance is needed so that we can again glorify God.

Jesus glorified 1

John 16:13-14  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.

Others will see the glorified Christ in us and want Him for themselves. This is our purpose in our Christian life…to bring God glory.

John 17:25-26  “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

We are to be set apart from the world. Our bodies and our actions should exemplify Christ 24/7 even when we are alone. People should see the light of Jesus in us and we should shine revealing the glory of God in us. This will expose God to the world. The Holy Spirit lives in those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We are Gods representatives!

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

Glorifying God part one

glory of God 5

Before I start I just want to say this first in relation to us and the Glory of God… Roman 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

We don’t even come close! We should all learn to know our place in the whole picture of our existence and we should also understand our privilege that we have in being created and given a chance to be put right with the supreme being of this universe to the point of being able to be adopted into His family and be called His child. The fact is… for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

NO ONE CAN TOUCH THE GLORY OF GOD!!!!!!! Don’t even think about it!  Lucifer did and look where it got him.  I’ll share why in my blog today and tomorrow. Unless you understand this about God…you just won’t get Him and you won’t understand….who you are!

1 Chronicles 16:25-29

For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised; He is also to be feared above all gods. 26 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens. 27 Honor and majesty are before Him; Strength and gladness are in His place.

28 Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, Give to the Lord glory and strength. 29 Give to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!

Let’s start with what it means to Glorify God:

  1. To Show God’s glory to the world.
  2. Boasting about God.
  3. Giving God the honor and praise due Him because of who He is.
  4. To esteem His gloriousness.
  5. Magnifying Him for His greatness
  6. Expressing Gods’ importance publicly.
  7. To elevate the brilliance of God
  8. Exposing the splendor of God’s attributes
  9. To bring to peoples mind knowledge of God’s Excellence.
  10. Proclaiming the majesty of God.
  11. Heralding Gods’ superiority

If you’re under16 years of age you might put it like this:

  1. Yo Ya betta recognize who ya dealing with!
  2. God’s off the chain!
  3. Don’t play with the Almighty cause He has the juice! ( All power)

glory of God 4

God should be glorified because He is the most powerful being in the entire universe!!! He should be glorified because of His Holiness and His greatness. To glorify Him is to put Him above anything else in this world and in our lives. Everyone we come into contact with needs to know that God is EVERTHING to us. We need to promote God at every possible opportunity.

Glorified is a place of elevated Supremeness. It’s having all power to the point of deserving the greatest respect. It’s a supernatural position in that the only person in that place can be God Himself and His only son whom God Himself glorified. Since there is no beginning to God and there is no one over Him.  So that makes Him number one and everyone else under Him far below. The fact that He is so far elevated over everything in the universe makes Him supreme and glorified from the shear difference in nature.   Glorified is having a perfect moral character and a perfect… never having ever sinned nature.

glory of God 3

Glorified is total goodness that sets you apart from everyone else to the point of you being looked upon in total awe. You are put on a pedestal and only you deserve to be there. It’s that you are so wise and have so many supernatural abilities that you are truly unique from everyone and  everything else in the entire universe and that ever existed. Glorification is the purity that emanates from God’s being. All of the splendor and majesty and the fullness of His greatness exemplified in His overall image of who God is.

Just being able to create a human being, all plant life, animals and this universe brings God glory because who can really archive that kind of incredible feat?   Isaiah 43:7 everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”

All of these words don’t even scratch the surface of the explanation of the glory of God. It’s because its “super” natural and we in our humanity are not capable of understanding or grasping the entire experience of His incredible glory.

glory of God 2

Glorifying God puts God is a place in our lives where He belongs which is far above all things. He is already there and has always been….but for the sake of humanity….this is what we should do….Glorify Him. We have to humble ourselves in order to do it because we are nowhere near Gods superiority and we should know our place in His supremeness.

Jesus is the key to Glorifying God. Without Jesus there would be no way for this to be possible. Jesus came down to earth and opened doors that bought the light in this dark work and made glorifying God possible. Once the door has been open by Jesus then the Holy Spirit enters into our souls. The Holy Spirit is a flashlight in our mind to shine a light and illuminate God’s Glory in our spirit through supernatural means. The results of their work in our lives is made public when we Glorify God!!!

When I think of Gods supremacy I get very excited. When I think of His Gloriousness I can hardly breathe. When I feel a small touch of His majesty and Shekinah Glory I almost pass out! When I see the miraculous things He has done in my life and the lives of others I’m stunned beyond belief. I glorify Him and I tell others about this so that they can glorify my God too.

glory of God 1

Glorifying God is my fulltime job!!!!!!!!!!! It’s what I do when I’m alone and it’s what I do with my life and it’s what I do in front of others in every possible way as the Holy Spirit leads.

I feel when I finally get to heaven…..I don’t want to look back and see all the missed opportunities to show off my God. My brother Jesus didn’t hold back when He was here on earth.

When I first started blogging it seemed simple to just jot down a few of my ideas about my Lord and my God….But then I just felt like I wanted to brag about His goodness more and more. Yup….that is the whole thing in a nut shell….”BRAG ABOUT HIS GOODNESS”!!!!!!

This is a privilege that we humans have to glorify God this way (by our words and in our lives). Psalms 71:8 My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long. He really doesn’t need us to boast of His glory because the whole earth, the sky, the universe and the heavens declares His glory.

Revelation 4:11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

I’m going to kill myself!!

Leave a comment


It breaks my heart that this is one of my most popular blogs. This morning when I woke up I saw there were many people overnight that Googled…I want to kill myself God…and found their way to my blog.

Many people are becoming suicidal these days at an alarming rate. I pray for the sad hearts today. You never know that it could be someone in your family or a co-worker who is suffering. Many people who write me are suicidal Christians.

There was a time when I would have never shared this story about myself. But if it can help someone…… Lord have mercy…please.

This is my blog list of some of the searches that people did to find my blog today…so sad….

Yup!…that’s what I use to think every day for many years from about 1962-1982!!  Thank God I’m still here and here’s my story:

I am going to share something today that the Lord told me yesterday to share with you.  It’s very very personal and I have not told this publicly in detail like this before.  It’s very hard for me to relive this and share this story.    I’m sure the Lord has His purpose for this and I pray that it will be a blessing to someone who needs to hear it.

For  the first 32 years of my life (I’m 60 years old now) I felt very unhappy and sad inside.  By the time I was 12 years old… all I thought about was that I was a mistake to have been born.   I hurt inside and I didn’t want to be here on this earth anymore.  My…

Reflecting on the Holiness of God


holiness of God 5

1 Samuel 2:2 “There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

I’ve blogged 5 times on the subject of the Holiness of God.  This is my 6th one.  I’m obsessed with it!!  Why? Because It’s who God is!  If you don’t understand His holiness….you really won’t understand the concept of our spiritual lives and who our Father God really is.

Let me put this another way….GOD AIN’T LIKE US!!!!holiness of God2

What was God like before humanity met God?  He was Holy and different from anyone in the universe.  God was NEVER born!  He was never bad/sinful/evil.  He was and has always been Holy and set apart from any other principalities or humans. He’s pure perfection!  So let’s get all of that out of the way.

Before humanity met God He was and still is on His throne and in all of His Glory, splendor and perfection. There are really no human words to explain His greatness or holiness.  We can understand it by looking at us and knowing He is nothing even close to us except He is a spirit and we have a spirit in us also.  We can’t see God because He is a spirit and we can’t even see our own spirit within us.  God doesn’t have skin or a human type form. (He can get one if He wanted to though…He’s God and can present Himself in any form He wants to!  Can I just say…”Jesus?” Virgin birth or the time He was a burning bush…Hello!) With this ability to transform Himself into anything He wants, it enables Him to interact easily and convienently with us humans.

He wants us to be holy because this is His nature and this should be our nature too. When we are holy we are able to really get into the deep things of God because of being sanctified.  Holiness is who God is and this is what Jesus is working out in us to be.  Because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the ability that He gave us to have God’s Holy Spirit dwell in us… this gives us the opportunity to obtain…holiness.  We can’t seem to maintain this holiness though because of our sinful nature or flesh.  (That’s why we need the Holy Spirit helping us.)

holiness od God 4

1 Peter 1:16 Since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

God doesn’t have this problem because He is holy ALL THE TIME.  This is what sets Him apart from everyone.  No one can ever be like Him except Jesus when He became man and that was because Jesus is God.

To understand the holiness of God you must:

    1.  Study the scriptures and learn about God.
    2.  Meditate and ponder on what you’ve learned.
    3. Listen to what the Holy Spirit is revealing to you about your own sinful nature.
    4. Think out of the box about God but don’t be unscriptural with it.  In other words, God is very unique and not your average everyday experience.
    5. You must be a Christian and believe in who God/Jesus and the Holy spirit is.
    6. Want to know more about God.
    7. Not be fearful of His supernaturalness. God is not going give you knowledge that you are afraid to know and experience.

Once you put into practice the things above, then you will start to see how wrenched your life would be without Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps you to become aware of your own sinfulness and how much you needed Jesus. You’ll notice how much your own flesh wants to do what it wants to do. When you think about God you will see how we are nothing like Him and that we need to be very close to Jesus so that we will be in Gods will. In other words our own inadequacies can reveal Gods holiness to us.  The more we see who we really are the more we see who God really is…. very very Holy.  We couldn’t even hold our heads up if it wasn’t for Jesus…and even then we better remain….HUMBLE!

The closer I come to understanding the holiness of God…

  1. The more I want to do right by Him.
  2. The more I love His purity and unique nature.
  3. The more respect I have for His power and authority.
  4. The more I fear His justice.
  5. The more I appreciate what Jesus did for me on that cross and for His constant intercession on my behalf. 
  6. The more I know I need the Holy Spirit exposing my sins to me. 
  7. The more Gods Glory and Majesty are magnified to me in the form of His holiness.

Gods Holiness is a mystery to us humans. It’s almost impossible to hold on to it in your mind because our brains capacity to analyze this information is just not within our reach. The bible and the Holy Spirit’s revelation of God’s direction for our lives is the only way for us to try to decipher even the tiniest drop of understanding enough for us act accordingly.

Do we want to be Holy? Nobody can even see God unless we are! Jesus Christ will present us faultless to God. Jesus keeps us from stumbling and making total fools of ourselves. He cleans us up when we’re spiritual dirty.

Psalms 96:9 Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!

You know …. If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Savior…you can talk bad about God and you’ll still be ok….you can curse  Jesus and you can still  live….but when you do those things to the Holy Spirit…you betta’ run and hide!!!. There is something about the Holiest nature of God that you just can’t mess with. You could lose your eternal life in heaven. (Hell is eternal too ya’ know!)

Who is God? God is love…God is just and God is Holy. Just because God is loving and Holy doesn’t mean that there won’t be hell to pay for rejecting His Son. His Holiness also make Him very just. God don’t play!!! He’s Holy! His holiness makes Him off the chain… to put it into today’s language. I’m sure there are other principalities and powers in the universe….but God is so set apart from any other being that He is untouchable and incomparable to anything past, present or future.

holiness of god 6

So this world…earth betta’ recognize the creator!!! The Church betta’ get their eyes on the creator! We betta’ recognize His holiness and bow down as low as we can and humble ourselves and recognize who He really is and not like what everyone has imagined Him to be like.

Until the Church…His adopted Children stop being narcissistic because many preachers/teachers has us focusing on our needs, our happiness and ourselves….we are not going to experience an outpouring of the Holy Spirit manifesting the Glory of God leading us to be as Holy as our wonderful God is. Just because you haven’t been exposed to or don’t understand the holiness of God is no excuse to not live right. The Holy Spirit lives in all true believers and I’m asking you to listen to that inner voice.   He will take what you know about the truth of God’s word and reveal it to you so that you can repent and ask Jesus for forgiveness and live that holy life.

Those who grab on to holiness will experience the joy of their salvation when God gives them a visitation of Himself exposing the results of their desire to live a holy and sanctified life.

Father God…please open our ears, our heart and our minds to the knowledge of your word about who you are. Please help us to receive all that your Holy Spirit can reveal to us about you. Lord we want to go deeper in you. I pray for those who are your children and are fearful of going deep in you. I pray for those who never even thought to go deeper in you. Revive us oh Lord I pray in Jesus name…amen.

Jude 1:24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

This is what I think of my God…..

That day is a permanent part of our history in the United States of America and there is not one American who will ever forget what happened to so many innocent people.

What are people thinking after 10 years? Looking at the news this week and hearing the stories again I must say for me it still hurts and I can’t believe that it happen 10 years ago. Not only do I still feel the hurt but I have to deal with the terrorist who caused this pain. I am still working on forgiving and praying for them because they are still an everyday threat.

Many people are still angry and questioning God ……still asking why?…

what in the world

The above story shook me deep in my heart as well as several other news stories that have been just as shocking.  The things that happens to aborted babies…..  things that have changed in recent laws changing Gods original plan for mankind and so on are unimaginable.

The bible has predicted this all very clearly but yet it’s still hard for my mind to wrap itself around the horror of these stories.  God has a plan and I trust Him.  I will obey Him and do what He ask of me pertaining to my job on earth and I have my eye on what He’s promised me for my faithfulness in my future.

Even with all the bad news and doing the things listed in the scriptures below and then some….God is still on the throne and Master of the entire universe!  Fear not!

2 Timothy 3:1-6

1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

For the beauty of the earth


peconic 4


Psalms 19:1 [For the choir director; a psalm by David.] The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands have made.

This weekend my husband, and I went to the Peconic Herb farms in Wading River NY with our son Noah who is a photographer. He took these beautiful pictures. Seeing these scenes with my eyes in person was breathtaking. Looking at the photos freezes the beauty in my mind.peconic 5

Sometimes I look at the beauty on this earth and it makes me cry. Yesterday as I was pondering this I asked God…”why don’t the unsaved believe when they see the beautiful things on earth?” I said to God…these bodies are so intricate…all the species of animals….who can do this but you? Why don’t they believe in you?

Then reality sets in and I realize God gave us free will and that people have the choice to believe or not! My heart cries out to the Lord on their behalf!!! I pray and cry…pray and cry. I pray… “have mercy Lord!”   

So in the meantime…Gods handiwork is screaming out His name loud and clear. I have noticed His creativity…what about you?

Isaiah 6:3 And one called out to another and said,“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,

The whole earth is full of His glory.”

Message from the Lord 2015



God speaks I listen….and share. I feel to share this with you:

God is not playing! This is very serious!

I saw a vision of gray…the color gray. I see it very clearly. I asked God what does this mean and He said gray areas. Revelations 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. This is a gray area…not the only one but it’s one. If you say that you are a Christian and are a born again, blood washed, Holy Spirit filled, forgiven child of God and Jesus Christ is your personal Lord and Savior then… I hope and pray that you are not in the gray area. All of God’s word and all of His commands should be kept and acted upon and obeyed with no exceptions. Nothing has been changed or altered in the bible. EVERYTHING still stands! Every last word. If you are in a gray area….been silent on biblical truth, tolerating what you know God wants and what He doesn’t like….this will have repercussions in our communities and the world. We are not to sweep sin under the carpet or ignore it. We are not to look the other way and let it slide.

1Peter 1:16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

If we truly understand who God is and His Holiness we would never be in that gray area. The older I get and the deeper in God I get…I’m learning…DON’T MESS WITH GOD! I’m also learning all that God has done for me and how much HE loves me. This is why I stay motivated to go all out for Him. The fact is I’m His child…in fact He owns me! The fact is my whole life is and has always been about HIM! This ain’t my world or my home. I owe God everything including ME!!!! People who meet me know which side of the line I stand on. People think I’m religious….spiritual…over the top with my faith….. That’s me not in the gray area.

The other day I was at the gas station and a Muslim man came out of little booth where people go to pay for gas and he went over to the side of the building and put his prayer mat on the ground and knelt down and prayed and worshipped his god in front of a packed gas station. I didn’t think he was over the top. I just thought he wasn’t in a gray area of his faith. Either you follow and be obedient in what you believe or you don’t.         John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands.

In 2008…God revealed to me that He was going to do His own thing in this world. I knew what God was going to do …but now everybody…saved and unsaved knows. There has been a change in every aspect of human life. I’ve heard many people talking about it. With all that’s going on in the world these days my husband and I feel the need to pray every morning for our safety and that of our family.

We also follow the lead of the Holy Spirit so that we are careful not to get into the gray areas.  We’re human and we have veered off the path…but because of the Holy Spirit in us and our desire to please God we get back on track.

It ain’t easy though!! Our flesh wants to be lazy, and complacent. We can also so scared of what others may say or think so we remain…silent. Our silence is a gray area.

Well what is going to happen to our country and our world? Exactly what the bible itself has predicted. It’s happening and will continue to do so. I hear in my spirit much wailing and crying and I see sadness, mourning, suffering and more. This is why we can’t be in the gray area because God will be using us for His great commission and we will be ministering like never before.  We need to step out of our comfort zone and be bold for God.  I have a blog and recently it has been blowing up. My blog data lets me know what people are searching for on Google to  find their way to my blog. 2 of my most popular blogs are…”I’m going to kill myself” and also…”I’m so stupid”. Many of my other blogs on suffering and about who God are just blowing up also. People are using Google to find answers about God. My blog is almost in every country around the world now. People are searching for God, help and answers.

Are you available for the masters use or are you in the ….GRAY AREA?

Message given to me by the Lord in 2008…Put your spiritual ears on

Leave a comment


God gave me this message in 2008. I’m feeling this and more for now 2015. I’m feeling another strong message and will be praying for God to speak .
God ain’t playin’ these days! He’s speaking and those who have ears listen to what the Spirit is saying…….to you.

Originally posted on God Speaks I Listen:

Dear readers,

This morning I prayed and had no message. I waited on the Lord for a while listening for His voice as to what to write today. He then spoke and said give them the message I gave you in 2008. I though it was long but He said give it. So you must know me by now…God speaks I listen…..and obey. I got this message in 2008 when I had 10 months of extreme prayer for revival. It was so intense that I got sick from being so drained. I prayed and cried before the Lord for souls. I believe God answered me clearly and now I’m watching and waiting and I see His plan is activated. Please always pray about any message that someone shares with you, me including me. Always verify everything in your bible.

In His Service,

Abortion…Sensitive subject…My thoughts

A lot of talk about abortion recently. My blog on this subject is from deep in my heart and very emotion for me.

Originally posted on God Speaks I Listen:

I want to talk about voluntary abortion which is the removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy and why I’m personally against it.

My views on this come from a very personal thing that happened to me with one of my pregnancies. After having three girls… I was barren for about 5 years and my husband and I decided we wanted a son. After much prayer…the Lord gave me a miracle, opened my womb again, gave me a son and told me to name him Joshua. I’m a prayer intercessor (A person who prays for the needs of others). One day while I was pregnant with Joshua… I had a very strong sense of his spirit within me.  I was in very intense prayer and I felt my son’s spirit agreeing with me in prayer.  It was a very powerful moment for me. This was my first…

Don't believe everything

…….Or read without checking for truth.

Acts 17:11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

{Ya’ll know I love you….right. Well something is really pressing on my mind that I need to share with you.}

The scripture above was one of the first scriptures that really caught my attention early in my walk with the Lord. I have based my life’s study of God’s word on it.Don't believe everything 3


I hear MANY people quoting preachers, teachers and public speakers and many of these people follow different doctrines. My husband has taught me that whoever I listen to that I should go to their statement of faith, check out their church or ministry and check out where they got their credentials. I have discovered many things by doing this that are contrary to what I believe.

There are also questionable things that these people say that are backed up by audio or video recordings. I know that nobody can present the gospel 100% all the time…but if there are too many questionable things that are not scriptural or out of context…I won’t listen to that person or follow their ministry. I can’t allow wrong information in my spirit because I’m going through too much and life is too hard for me to play with truth.

I’m not going to name pastors or ministries I don’t follow because I feel if people search the scriptures for themselves for truth and not just follow what is being said or taught…they will figure it out.  Ask questions, search, study, discern, use wisdom and pray about all you receive into your eyes, ears and spiritman.

There are a few really good bible teaching ministries out there and some very good bible commentaries. The bible is an incredible supernatural book all on its own and the Holy Spirit is also there as our helper to bring understanding.

Don't believe everything 1

Would you go to a questionable doctor for your brain or open heart surgery? Heck no!! You would want that specialist to be as exact and on point as they can be!

It takes time and work to study the bible. The spiritual demonic forces of this world will try to get you off track. They will doctor stuff up so that it sounds correct and very spiritual….but beware of this deception!!! Search the scriptures for yourself. Your spiritual life depends on you using your free will to follow his will and God said study the word, search for truth and hide it in your heart.

If you do this you will not get a diploma or degree…but you will:

  1. Have power to overcome and get the victory.
  2. Know how to walk with God.
  3. Know exactly the plans God has for you and what He requires in your life.
  4. Be secure in God’s love for you.
  5. Have assurance of what Jesus did for you on the cross.
  6. Have knowledge and wisdom over right and wrong in your life.
  7. Know where you’re going and have hope to hang in there for your great future with God.

This is a time of great persecution for the church. There are many catastrophes happening in people’s lives and on this earth. This is no time to be weak in your knowledge of God’s word. This is a time to obey God’s word. His word says we should be out here spreading the good news of Jesus Christ and making disciples…but how can we do that if we are not having personal revivals because we don’t know God’s word or His will for ourselves. WE ARE THE CHURCH….WE ARE GOD’S ADOPTED AND CHOSEN PEOPLE!   We owe God everything! We owe God us! We are not our own. Our whole life is all about Him. We will know Him when we know God’s word rightly divided. Not man’s interpretation about Gods word but Holy Spirit guided truth of His word scripture by scripture and cross referencing text.

Start fresh today. Make a commitment to reflect on where you go to church and what is being taught.  Also who you are listening to and what you reading.  Are you on the right track for your spiritual development and growth?  Is that word being rightly divided?

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

A Very Merry Heart

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine………

Ok…so I’m going there…..something a little controversial because there are few scriptures in the bible of God laughing. This is one where God was laughing at foolishness (Psalm 2:4). Well hey… foolishness is a good thing for Him to laugh at…as long as God is not laughing about my foolishness.

As the scripture above says that a merry heart is good…does that mean that God cracks jokes and falls off His throne in side-splitting laughter? Well He may do that I don’t know. Personally I don’t think He does….but we really don’t know all that God does or doesn’t do.

I’m sure…well not that sure…Jesus laughed when He was here on earth.  I’m assuming this because He was human and there are scriptures in the bible of Jesus showing emotions like crying and anger to name a few… so…

A mighty woman of God…Aunt Mae!


Aunt Mae

Aunt Mae and me. She spoke spiritual life into me! She would say to me…”Now Tanya…God can do anything but fail. He will never let you down”.

This is my Aunt Mae and this VERY godly woman was a big influence of faith in God in my life. I saw Jesus in her!!  She loved everyone and she was there for everyone who needed help physically and financially!!  She had so much faith and prayed for many people including me and my children.

Aunt Mae didn’t get much schooling. She learned to read by reading the bible.  As an adult her vision was very poor so she memorized the scriptures and quoted them to everyone.  She shared her faith with family, friends and strangers whether they wanted to hear it or not. She was the pastor of a Pentecostal church and never married until God blessed her with a husband when she was in her 80’s.

Aunt Mae outlived her husband.  In her 90’s she had to have her leg amputated.  She wanted to go back to live in her home and with one leg she climbed the long flight of stairs to her apartment on top of her church.  God had shown her many miracles over the years and she knew that He wouldn’t let her down.

For many years now…..she’s been in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior.  I celebrate her life and legacy.

She lived how God wants us to live in His word and I pray that I’m following in her footsteps and being obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life.

I thank God for my…Aunt Mae!

The mysteriousness of God


Mysterious God

Job 11:7-8 (MSG)   Do you think you can explain the mystery of God? Do you think you can diagram God Almighty? God is far higher than you can imagine, far deeper than you can comprehend,

If we knew everything about God now….We would see Him as regular and become too familiar with Him. But because of His uniqueness…He is a mystery to us. God has chosen to give us a certain amount of information about Himself and after that…no more whatsoever. Whatever the bible says, whatever this earth reveals and whatever the Holy Spirit confirms… is it!

God is soooooo much more and this is the part I meditate on and respect. I respect His privacy about Himself and the entire universe. This type of privacy is for our benefit because of God’s holiness and physical makeup. We would be consumed if He didn’t keep His essence from us.

Mysterious God 3

Back up in your mind to before the creation of the earth…what was God doing? A mystery? If we knew a lot about Him it just would not be the same. The mystery somehow increases our interest and curiosity in Him. It makes His Majesty and Gloriousness have a deeper impression in my mind. I know His power is unexplainable and this draws me to Him with such awe. I know that I’m dealing with someone who is so supernatural that there are no human words to even really describe Him. I’m drawn to search the scripture to try to unravel this mystery or at least try to get to the end of my earthly knowledge of who He is.Mysterious God 2

I have been searching to know Him deeper and deeper most of my life. I just can’t get enough of Him so I keep searching. Then He gives me gifts of feeling His Shekinah Glory…but that just makes me hunger for more of Him.

9) but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.” 10) For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10)

There are times when I see Him. Yes I know…no one sees God and live…but there are other ways to see people without looking. Read this blog I wrote on the subject:

Not knowing everything about God is an advantage. #1… we would be scared to death of Him because we would know the His fullness of His holiness and #2….we would get use to Him and He would not be as special to us. Look at how people have become too familiar with Him now.

I am personally obsessed with the Holiness of God and have written many blogs on the subject because:

  1. I feel that’s how I will Know God more.

  2. That will help me to know who I should be in Him.

  3. It reveals how much I needed the blood of Jesus to save me from eternal death and separation from God forever.

  4. I know I need the Holy Spirit to help me to make me like Jesus Christ and live a holy life.

Now Jesus was a mystery also….but that mystery has been revealed to us.  Colossians 2:2–3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

God’s privacy about His whole existence is fascinating to me because I can only imagine about His past, and future eternal existence.   God is a spirit and is unlike anyone or anything we have ever known. He is the creator of everything…but yet He humbled Himself to come down here to make sure we had a way back to Him physically and spiritually. We came from Him and we will go back to Him. Heaven is our home.

So for right now…I will spend time in His presence though prayer and experience the power of the Holy Spirit to reveal God to me. I will scour the scriptures to expose all available information about Him so I can be in awe of His mysteriousness.

Even through His Awesome power, Holiness and uniqueness….He has made a way to connect with us until we finally see Him….face to face!

What happens when our body dies


death what happens

Dr. Judy Melinek who is a forensic pathologist explains what happens when our body dies.

“The first thing that happens when you die is that your heart stops beating and blood flow ceases. Blood then pools in the parts of your body closest to the ground, a process called lividity. Because there is no more blood flow, oxygen-starved tissues stop all metabolic function. Your eyes cloud over, and your muscle fibers lock up in rigor mortis. Your body temperature goes down to match the ambient temperature.

Eventually, bacteria from the gut and upper respiratory tract enter your bloodstream and cause putrefaction, while your body’s cellular enzymes digest its cells, a process called autolysis.”

This makes the story of Lazarus more amazing! “Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.” (Luke 11:39)

We are all going to die. Our bodies are dying a little everyday as we are aging from the day of our birth. This is the good news….if we have repented from our sin and accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior…we don’t have to worry about these physical bodies. Jesus said it best when He was on the cross….Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. (Luke 23:46) If you commit yourself to God now your spirit will go to be with God when your body stops functioning on earth.

Death is a reality….spiritual death is a reality….but because you are born again….eternal life is REALITY! Praise God and thank you Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our bodies are going to do what they do…but we can make sure what our spiritual body does!

Psalms 146:4 When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing.

2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

1John 2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

This picture touched me the most.  Made me want to cry! You are still here...please read this blog.

This picture touched me the most. Made me want to cry! You are still here…please read this blog.

They had fame and fortune. In my youth….I desired that. What did I know as a teenager…a young adult? I thought it would be great to have lots of money. Oh… to hear people screaming my name. I’m a singer and I did desire that. But now that I’m 63 years old and have survived many hard trials including cancer…I have a whole different prospect on what is important in life.

Mark 8:36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

Only God knows where these woman are right now. My concern is for the rest of us. I know that my name is written in the Lambs book of life! I know when I die that I will go to heaven. But what about you?

Our time on this earth is very brief compared to eternity. We are here for about 80 years if God spares our lives. He does want us to have fun and be happy and I have had many many happy times. But as I’m getting older I have had a shift in my thinking. I think about pleasing God and where I’m going for eternity. I think about where everyone else in this world is going for eternity.

I think about how I can tell as many people as I can about the good news of Jesus Christ.

Whitney and Bobbi Kristina, Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Amy Winehouse, Freddie Prinze, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith, John Belushi, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Kurt Kobain, Hank Williams and many others who had fame and fortune died at an early age from self destruction.

All of the money in the world cannot buy the peace, love and happiness that I have in Jesus Christ. It also can’t buy eternal life in heaven. We all are going to have eternal life…but where will you end up? What legacy will you leave behind? What are you doing with your life?

Died in His 30's

Died in His 30’s…..rose in His 30’s 3 days later.

There is one other person who died early…not because He was leading a life of self-destruction…but He died because we were leading a life to our destruction. That person who died early was Jesus Christ!! Short life….but big results ! My hero! My Savior! I love Him! This is the answer for happiness that all the money in the world just can’t buy! It’s a fact! Peace out! Live long and prosper!


Sound Doctrine…The truth of God’s Word

Leave a comment


2 Timothy 2-4    Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.…

I’ll be writing a blog soon on knowing God’s word for yourself. God’s word is very powerful…but If unsound doctrine is taught to you………What can happen?  Confusion, unanswered prayer, wrong direction, unclear path, unsure of Gods will, disillusionment and a misguided, heart mind and soul.

What to do about all the chaos in the world


Look directly to the Lord for all direction, guidance and help in your life.  Keep focused!

Look directly to the Lord for all direction, guidance and help in your life.  Keep focused!  Put on blinders to help block out anything that will distract you from focusing on Jesus and His plan for your life.

The Spirit of the Lord led me to share this with you today.

This world is becoming more challenging and more dangerous by the minute. We can’t solve all the world’s problems. The bible tells us these things will happen. The dangers are starting to hit very close to home.  Do NOT fear!!  Don’t be stressed, scared and anxious all day and throughout the night.

Here are some things you can do to get you through:

1.Keep up your personal relationship with Jesus Christ!!!

2.Study God’s word like crazy!! Do what the word says to do!

3.Stand up for what is scripturally and morally right!!

4.Live HOLY!!

This is also what I heard the Holy Spirit impress upon me….He told me to put on blinders and don’t look back, don’t look all around…but look forward and keep focused on what God wants me to do. The bible explains very clearly what we all (Christians) are supposed to be doing for the Lord. We all have a job to do and now is the time to go forth.

Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

We all belong to God! Our lives are all about Him. He is our protector and helper…..but we have got to do His business and He will take care of our business.

Our job is to make disciples and I’m gonna do just that. If I can’t get out into the highways and byways I will support those who can with my prayers and my money that God gives me.

Right now I can get out there and everywhere I go I strike up a conversation with someone so I can share Jesus. My husband and I are in ministry also. We suffer with illnesses and life’s difficulties daily…but I tell you that nothing is going to stop us from fulfilling our purpose!!

Don't be scared of what's happening all around us. Put those blinders on and don't be intimidated  the evil surrounding us.  Stay focused on Jesus Christ!!  Put on the armor of God!  Remember that no weapon formed against you will prosper.

Don’t be scared of what’s happening all around us.
Put those blinders on and don’t be intimidated by the evil surrounding us. Stay focused on Jesus Christ!! Put on the armor of God! Remember that no weapon formed against us will prosper.

The enemy of our soul may be breathing down our necks, he may be taunting us and trying to terrify us…but knowing who our all-powerful God is and how much He loves us will drive out any fear that we may have. God created satan and his demons and they can only do but so much to us. 2/3’s of the angels are protecting us. Do you know how many that is? Knowing God can you imagine? If the 1/3 is enough to mess with everyone on earth then 2/3’s is double that! We are protected!! God gave the angels charge over us!  Do you realize how supernatural God is? Do you know that He is working out everything in our lives? Do you trust Him? Even in the bad times He’s there!  God said the He will work things out for our good? Yeah!!!

The Spirit is leading me to give you this scripture and it will be the final words:

James 4:6-7   But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.


God said the devil will flee from you….BELIEVE IT!!!

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. !!!!!!!!!!!

The greatest artist ever known


earth 2

Psalm 19:1-2

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.

Oh my goodness!…God put His whole creative artwork in the sky and have some not recognized His handiwork?  How can that be possible because who could have made such breathtaking beauty and unspeakable detail but God?

I remember being taught in school that the early inhabitants of the earth thought the earth was flat.  The were convinced of that. Over time they figured out they were wrong.  Many people believe there is no God.  I look up into the sky day and night and I think…”Oh my God!…incredible!!!”

Tonight my husband and I are going to attend a very large prayer meeting for God to have mercy on us.  I’ve been asked to pray for souls to know Jesus Christ.  This has been my hearts cry ever since I became a committed Christian in 1984.  Maybe it’s hard for some to see God in the beauty of this earth…but I’m committed to praying for unsaved souls to know the truth, to hear the good news…to repent, believe in Jesus and receive the gift from God of eternal life.  I’m also committed to being much more active in evangelism.  Just my thoughts for today.


A fresh revelation about the Holy Spirit


Holy spirit revalation

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (“The Holy Spirit comes ON you!”)

Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (“Therefore…GO GO GO!”)

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (“But the Comforter, Helper, Counselor, Paraclete and Advocate…The Holy Ghost… will teach you!”)

Last week I came to a fresh revelation about my walk with God…that I just can’t shake so I need to write it out.

All of us AD. (After the death of Jesus) followers have a greater responsibility in our relationship in knowing God than the Old Testament saints because we have the Holy Spirit living, dwelling, and residing in us! This fresh revelation has caused me to feel more responsible to live a Holy life and to be more of a witness for Jesus Christ.

The Old Testament saints had to be more concerned with being obedient to the law and making sure they atoned for their sins.

Holy spirit revalation

Some advantages to our New Testament life:

  1. Jesus personally gave us instructions.
  2. We know that we are soooo LOVED.
  3. We got to know the story about Jesus being the propitiation for our sins.
  4. We also know that the devil HAS BEEN defeated.
  5. A beautiful place has been prepared for us and we’ll never ever suffer pain or sorrow again.
  6. We will see God face to face.
  7. The best FYI that we have is that we will live and reign with Him forever!!

Another advantage for us AD. Saints is that we have a Helper…the 3rd Person of the trinity who is The Holy Spirit!!!! We are NEVER alone. We also have a direct way of communicating with our Father God…..our Creator!!Holy spirit revalation 2

I feel a greater responsibility to live right and share my faith and go and make disciples. God gave us a GIFT…the Holy Spirit. I just want to do all I can for my Precious Loving Father! I don’t feel pressured to do stuff for Him I just want to because the more I realize what He’s done for my benefit…the more I want to go all out for Him.

This life is very difficult at times…well many times…well really almost every day…BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!!! Oh my Lord…I’m never alone and never without help!!!

I pray for more boldness to speak up and go after the unsaved. I have the Holy Spirit for that task too!!

I can also get really really close to God… in fact I can walk with Him all day every day!!! You guessed it…because the Holy Spirit has come on me and you too!

Are you seeing what I’m seeing about what an advantage us AD. Saints have. We can get used to our privilege because it’s been a part of our lives for so long. But sometimes we need to sit back and take a fresh look at the all the blessings we have.

I pray my fresh revelation will be your fresh revelation today. God bless you and keep enlightening you!!!

Jesus Spitting and healing


spit best

John 9:6

“While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” 6When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 7and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam ” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing.…

I bite my lip a lot because of the misalignment of my teeth and jaw. Many times it bleeds but the amazing thing is that it can heal in a 2 days. Whenever I’ve had mouth surgery…my mouth heal in a few days. If I have cut on my skin it can take a week or more to heal. There are healing enzymes in saliva.

In ancient times they believed that spit/saliva had healing properties. Jesus spit on 3 occasions to heal people. Why did He spit? Did He want people to know that He was about to heal someone? Was it that He was trying to look tuff like… I’m bad? If Jesus ever wanted to spit on me I would be like…Jesus…you can spit on me all you want…thank you so much!!!spit

When Jesus made mud out of spit…I believe the mud represented the darkness. Jesus said before He healed the blind man that He was the light of the world. So with His own blessed body fluid He made this blind man who was in the dark able to see the light.

Jesus was that light for all of us who was in the dark. Jesus didn’t spit on us in the natural but He spit on us in the spit. We see the light and our eyes are opened! The significance is not the spit but the spitter and the motives behind the spitting.

I was blind but now I see!! Who gave me my sight? Jesus! Now that I can see I feel I want to shine my light for everyone to see…truth. I want to shine my light into this dimly lit world.spit1

How can I do this? Should I walk around spitting? For Pete sakes NO! I need to walk my walk and not just talk the talk!…I need to be kind, loving and caring. Jesus did this while He was on earth and it’s what we need to do also.



Jesus didn’t spit to show off one bit.

His job was to make sure spiritual eyes were lit.

Once these men were blind and now they can see,

They testified about His power before He was nailed Him to that tree.

Jesus tried to make sure we understood about the light.

We need to also shine because this world is so uptight.

Our spiritual light could lead people to be set free,

So they will live forever with God eternally.

So don’t be scared are share the news that Jesus spits of folks

Let them know that rejecting Him really is no Joke.

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.


Ouch! There’s Something in my Eye


Bob…I’ve got something in my eye. “Don’t worry…I can help you get it out!

Mathew 7:3-5 Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

My blog today is a testimony about how God broke me out of a bad habit of minding other people’s business. Earlier in my Christian walk I did not always stop people when they were talking about other people to me because … “we’re praying for them”. Even before I became a committed Christian…I was what you call a nosey person. I had opinions about other people’s business.

Ouch! There’s Something in my Eye

So after some years of walking with the Lord I heard a awful rumor about a Christian in my community that happened years before.  One day I was at a church service and this person was there.  I could not pay attention to the service because I was too busy thinking about the rumor. It consumed me to the point that I cried out to the Lord and asked Him to help me. I will NEVER forget what the Lord said to me….”while you’re looking at Him, I’m look at you…While you are judging there heart….I’m judging yours! This immediately got my thoughts under control and has continued to do so to this day. I love God’s lessons….they will fix you right up.

You betta believe I mind my own business now except when I’m on assignment for the Lord and He ask me to attend to someone. I have also learned that God does check out my heart, my motives, and my thoughts. I want Him to…I want to be clean inside. It’s just that I feel uncomfortable now if I gaze at someone else’s stuff…because I always know His eyes are on my stuff.

In the scripture above it says there is a speck in your brother’s eye and a whole big plank, log…tree in the judger’s eye. I think that person may have some kind of sin in their life…but I think God’s view on the person judging the other person  as a bigger issue.  God is the only one who has the real authority to judge another person.

I think if God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit had a discussion about me  it might be like this: 

God looks down to earth at me and puts His hands on His hips and says….Look at Tanya Nemley all up in Our business…she has no right to have her eyes on anyone else’s affairs. Is she exhibiting the fruits of the spirit or  1Corinthians 13:4-7 ? Let’s speak to her about this…I know she will listen because I know how much she loves us and wants to obey my word. Well it looks like she got the message…Have you read her blog today?

Message for today: Mind your business before God gets into yours.

Ouch! There’s Something in my Eye
