Emergency Repentance

5 Comments

1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

It was a beautiful day in 1995, but not so nice for me.  I was suffering every day from a rare undiagnosed medical condition.  These awful stroke-like episodes came on me daily and this day I thought it was going to be my last day on earth.  I was home alone too.  I sat in my kitchen chair and leaned my head back not knowing how far todays horrible symptoms would take me.  I was having a great deal of trouble breathing.

I didn’t call anyone or try to go to the ER because I had been having these episodes so often and doctors had no idea what wrong with me so why bother to call an ambulance.  I leaned my head back in my chair and I remember how scared I was and how desperate I felt in that moment.  I felt like I was going to pass out, so I very quickly asked God to forgive me of all my sins.  I was already a Christian, but I felt that I needed to make sure that my heart was totally clean inside.  I wanted to repent for anything that I had done because I thought any second I was going to die. Psalms 6:2 Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am faint; heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.

My mother- in- law who is home with the Lord had to be bought back to life with CPR and the electric shock paddles.   She told me the exact same thing happened to her.  She said she asked God to forgive her in those frightening moments when she thought she wasn’t going to live.

We humans, all over the entire world right now are being faced with the possibility of illness and or death.  This is a time to ask God to forgive you, to wash you clean.  It’s truly a time to seek repentance.

This is not meant to be a discouraging blog to today.  But it’s an uplifting thing to feel clean inside of your soul.  Cleansing is available because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. The blood of Jesus can wash our spiritual insides clean when we repent or ask for forgiveness for the wrong or sinful things that we have done.

This is a very strange and difficult time for humanity, but there is a peace that comes over us when we are right with God!

I still suffer with many illnesses.  I’ve had cancer, major surgeries and a stroke. I have 2 rare disorders, and many medical problems.  There are many things that I have learned throughout all of these problems and that is to make sure that I’m living as God has told me to live in the bible.  I also know that I want my heart to be clean. 

I want to live like today is my last day on planet earth.  To me that means telling as many people about Jesus as possible and also appreciating those around me like family and friends. Lastly, I’ve learned to keep my relationship with God on a high level, not for God, but for me.  With all that I’m going through and what is going on in this world…I NEED all that GOD has to offer me!!!!

1 Peter 4:12-13 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

Psalms 27:4-5 One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.

The LORD is “MY” portion

God bless you and keep you safe and healthy.

portion best

Lamentations 3:22-24

22 It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

This was my scripture reading for today and I was so moved by it and feel the Lord is saying verse 24 to someone today. “The Lord is your portion!!!!”

I looked up portion and there were several meanings. Everyone had a little something different to express the meaning of that word and they were all good. Some said it means inheritance…some say …share, piece, part, section, and on and on.
My own personal meaning of the verse is that the Lord is all I need and want…He is my shepherd and I will want for nothing and I will put all my trust in…

Ask God for anything… Really?

Be still and know Gods got your back.

John 14:14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

We should pray with faith believing that God can do the thing we ask for. We MUST pray for God’s will. All answers to prayer will bring God glory. Gods will for us is what God thinks is for our good….in our best interest.  Joni Erikson Tada has been paralyzed for most of her life. In spite of her illness she has done tremendous things for God. If she had not gone through the accident that caused her paralysis, I really don’t think her life would have bought God as much glory. A second benefit of her illness is that, in heaven she will be greatly rewarded for all she has done and for all she has had to endure and yet kept the faith. Her suffering has benefitted her greatly in ways that…

They slapped Jesus right in His face!!!

Leave a comment

Still thinking about Resurrection day and all that Jesus endured for me….and you.

God Speaks I Listen

slapping jesus

Matthew 18:22 When Jesus said this, one of the officials nearby slapped him in the face. “Is this the way you answer the high priest?” he demanded.

Matthew 26:67 Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him

Matthew 27:30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again.

Mark 14:65 Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, “Prophesy!” And the guards took him and beat him.

Immanuel עִמָּנוּאֵל‬ means “God with us”.

So let me get this straight…God Himself came down to the earth that He created and fixed things so we could straighten out our relationship with Him so that through Jesus Christ we could be holy and clean enough to be presented to God and live with Him forever in heaven? Yes!!!

God is Trying To Tell Us Something

2 Comments

Revelation 2:11 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Revelation 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

I am no great theological genius….far from it in fact….But I do have a pair of ears. God has been speaking to the Church…to us in His word. His word may have been written a long time ago, but the bible is a living book and every word that is in it is relevant for this month, this day, this year, and this very second.
It’s a good thing to read the book of Revelation often to hear Jesus messages to the Churches. This I believe will keep us excited about our future and keep us continually moving in the right direction.


I do believe God is speaking. I just got a vision while writing this. Remember when we were little kids and we made a telephone by using 2 paper cups and a string and you and a friend would each put a cup to your ear? That’s what I see. Or maybe you were trying to eavesdrop and listen in on conversation by putting a glass to a wall. You might think by now I was a nosey child….but my point is…..I see us listening in on what God is saying. He is speaking to us in His word …….and….He is speaking to us individually. He has clear instructions and direction for us who have spiritual ears. If you are a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ….God has a word for you. Put your ear on the glass and press. Get very quiet and listen. The Spirit of God is speaking through His word.

I will tell you what I feel the Lord is saying to me. I feel God is telling me to:

1. Put Him first before anything or anyone including kids and husband and to love Him with my body, mind , soul and heart. I feel I should love God like crazy.
2. Share the good news of Jesus Christ….be smart and discerning about it, with boldness and wisdom…..and most important …follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
3. Keep check on myself…..be a person of good moral conduct….a person of integrity….and know I’m representing the Lord at all times.
4. Love other people especially the unlovable.

More things God is speaking to me about:

1. There are things happening on earth that are historic. Plans have been laid out in heaven. Many people are and will be affected. This is a time for us Christians to be serious about our walk with the Lord.
2. This is not a time to fear but a time to trust.
3. These are valley times for many…but much growth will come.
4. Those who belong to Christ will be a light. Many will want to know about the light and will follow the light…now is the time to shine for the Lord.
5. This is a time to let go of the worlds things….and set your house in order…lay your all at His feet.
6. Be very thankful for everything you have.
7. Know your bible because without the knowledge of the living word…you have no weapon in the battle.
8. The battles are getting much stronger and harder….but we have the Spirit of God and have power from on high.
9. The future…..is Jesus Christ….Because He lives you can do what?……face tomorrow.
10. All power belongs to God…..God is about to expose His power to the world and has already started…..put your ear to the glass…learn what He is doing and what your part is in this…..be obedient and be in His will. No matter what you are going through….He will use you…if …you are available. Give yourself away to Him! Throw yourself at His feet and say…use me Lord. OBEY THE HOLY SPIRIT….when He speaks to your thoughts/mind or when He speaks to you through the Living Word…the bible. God is speaking, God is speaking.

Revelation 2:11 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Those who have ears………….

The Worlds “New Normal”

new normal

new normal 1

When I was in labor I was like….”Oh NO! Not the excruciating pain of pregnancy!!!” I know what I’m talking about…I was pregnant 5 times!!! After that first wave of pain you’re not a happy camper. In fact I was more stressed out the 5th time I pregnant because I knew what was getting ready to take place. Although I knew that I was about to experience the great joy of motherhood, I really didn’t care about that in the midst of all my pain. Labor pains are the some of the worst pains I’ve ever experienced. That’s why women scream their dag gone brains out. Someone needed to MAKE THIS PAIN STOP”!!!!!!

Romans 8:22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

Matthew 24:8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes…
