Robin Williams funny but so sad




robin best







I was so sadden this morning to learn that a very funny comedian and talented actor had taken his own life.  How could someone who was so funny on the outside… be so sad on the inside?  I wish I could have talked to Robin and shared with him some good news.

When I meet people I don’t know…they look OK on the outside….but I wonder what’s going on in their insides.  I wonder if their soul is saved.  Have they made a decision for Jesus Christ?

People can look one way on the outside and feel another way on the inside.  Robin Williams seemed to have it all…money,fame, and talent but one thing he didn’t have was hope and peace.

Millions of people are like that.  Some other notables who had no peace were Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston , Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Don Cornelius, Donny Hathaway, Ernest Hemingway,Freddie Prinze , Herve`Villechaize(Fantasy Island) to name a few and the list of regular everyday people who had no peace and lost their lives to hopelessness is in the millions.

I was that person who had no hope or peace… so I know what I’m talking about!!!  I was completely healed in 1983!  There is Hope and there is peace available and the only person I know who can give it is Jesus Christ.  Let’s look around and see who we can share this good news with.  Let’s pray for the famous and share with those who cross our paths.

If you’re the one who has no peace or hope and are suicidal right this minute….call 911, go to an emergency room, mental health facility right away for your safety.  Please!!  Emergency help is available!

If you would like to read my story…here’s the link:

God bless everyone who reads this blog.  May the peace of God be with you today!!

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.


If you feel like this.......

JOHN 3:16

What to do when weary


weary best



Mathew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Proverbs 3:24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. This is as a result of having wisdom and understanding (vs 21)


I usually have visions for other people but today I had one for myself. I have a rare disorder which makes me very ill sometimes. I have been having a rough time lately and it has worn me out physically. I wasn’t able to go to church today. So I was a little upset and went into prayer because I know where my help comes from.

I was in covers like this

He tucked me in covers that looked something like this.

I was talking to God … just spilling out my problems on Him and then I got quiet so I could hear Gods voice. He told me a few things and then said He loved me. I was like….aren’t you going to say more….can we talk a while longer? (You see… sometimes God and I can talk for hours) But God gave me a vision of Him tucking me in this amazing bed with beautiful soft white sheets and a big fluffy quilt folded back. He pulled the covers up to my neck and then He kissed me on my forehead. He said He wanted me to rest and be at peace. After that vision…wonderful peace came over me in real time. I just love my Heavenly Father!

Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

If you have a problem…the only way to get through it is to seek God!

I’m going to kill myself!!


I am going to kill myself blog

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 first suicide attempt was when I was about 12 years old… I took a bunch of my allergy pills.  The next morning, I was shocked and sad to wake up and still be alive.

I noticed people didn’t really like me and I surely didn’t like myself at all. I felt the 2 people who were supposed to love and like me didn’t. When I was 18, I tried to go to college and failed.  I tried to keep a job…failed.  Everything I did in my life was a failure.  I didn’t know it at the time, but I had and still have a learning disability and chronic illnesses which I know contributed to my situation.

I was a married woman with 3 daughter’s ages from 1 to 8 and I was suffering from major depression every day.  My sadness was unshakeable.  I cried off and on all day every day. I also suffered with extreme chronic fatigue.  My husband was so patient and kind and understanding and stood by my side through all of this.  I thank God for Him!

A few years went by, and I managed to raise my girls.  They never knew these things about me when they were little.  I was super mom to them.  There were lots of days I had no energy and I thank my mom for taking them to the park several times a week.   There were other friends who would treat my kids to special outings or take them for a few days.   My depression and suicidal thoughts were starting to get much worse.

I am going to kill myself blog.eye

Then the worst event happened.  This one day…I was so depressed that I just wanted out of the internal pain.  I felt very very HOPELESS.  I was not a committed Christian although I had gotten saved watching Billy Graham as a child, and I did love God very much…but I was not committed to Him.

I was crying all day long.  While two of my girls were in school, I decided to kill myself.  I wasn’t thinking clearly at all.  I put my 3-year-old daughter down for her afternoon nap and I then went into the kitchen and got a long kitchen knife. I turned it backwards and started to stick it in my chest so that it would go through my heart which was hurting so bad.  As I pushed it into my skin, my 3-year-old daughter tapped me on my leg and said “mommy”.  I dropped the knife and picked her up hugged her and cried.

I never heard her come down the stairs and walk up on me.  This is what happens when suicidal thoughts come. Negative thoughts come in your mind and takes it over.  These thoughts try to get you to harm yourself. You feel totally hopeless!  You feel as if nobody in the world understands your despair. You are in a TRANCE.  Reality is blocked from your mind!  All you can see, and feel is the pain and nothing else around you.  You don’t even realize what you’re about to do!  You don’t even care if it’s going to hurt!  I called my husband at work, and he rushed right home.  That day I knew I needed emergency help.  I had gotten counseling before, and it didn’t help…so this time I decided to sign myself into a mental institution.

That was one of the darkest days of my life!!!!!  I left my 3 beautiful girls and signed my life away for a month to try to get the help that I needed.  Let me tell you…it was a total shock to me.  When I got there, I thought I was really crazy, and I was very embarrassed!!  When they take you in, they take away everything you have. They have to check you out for marks so that no one can say they injured you.  I was in the suicide watch unit, so I was being monitored 24 hours a day.  I was just so embarrassed to be there, but I knew that I needed to be because I was going to take my life in the worst way.  After counseling, therapy and weeks in the hospital I was released.  When I got home, I was no better!!

A thought came to my mind of the only person that I thought might be able to help me.  Someone tried to tell me about Jesus a few years before and had basically beaten me over the head with the bible.  They did give me a bible to keep.   I had a talk with God and told Him that if He didn’t help me out that I was not going to be here because I was going to check out of here on my own.  I cried really hard as I felt I was at my total end.  I opened the bible and it opened to Psalms 86.  I read and cried and reread it and cried.  My tears fell on that page and soaked that bible.  And then something incredible happened to me.   I was healed of depression at that moment but didn’t know it then.  Let me explain this.

I had always been a crafty person, and someone had given me a dozen of silk roses when I was in the hospital.  I cut them up and made corsages out of them and sold them all.  Then I bought more flowers and books on floral design and made many more floral arrangements.  Then a friend asked me to make the flowers for her wedding and I did that.  I started making floral arrangements and selling them.   On the weekends my husband, our kids and I would sell at the craft fairs.  Before I knew it the depression was almost gone.  And then, the best thing that EVER happen to me happened….I became a committed Christian.  I gave myself over to the Lord 100%!!!!  My family and I joined a wonderful church and learned about God…we were nurtured by loving Christian people.

Guess what?  I was completely healed from depression!!!!!  No more internal pain….No more hopelessness!  No more hating myself!  No more confusion in my mind…I finally HAD PEACE!!!! I finally have peace!

I want to tell you that today 2013….I am happy!!!!  I am so happy!!!!  I know the purpose for my life!…I feel God’s love for me!….and I know where I’m going when I transition from this earth!!!!  I get God’s mercies new EVERY morning when I wake up…I get peace for my mind….I get grace to see me through EVERY situation that I face….and I have hope!!!!  I have Jesus Christ to thank for this!  Many of you who follow my blog know how much I love the Lord because I say it often.  This testimony is one of the reasons why I love Him so much.

I just want to say here that God deals with us as individuals and may use a different method to help you.  You may need counseling and medication for a time, or He might do something different with you. I know that asking God for help was the answer that changed my life.

God told me that I was always knocking on the door of hell trying to get in and He had to keep sending the angels after me every time I tried to kill myself.  I thank God that I am in my right mind today!!!!  What a miracle!!!  I love this mighty and powerful supernatural being…I love my God…He’s My Father in Heaven and I worship the ground He walks on!!!!!!

I’m finally Happy.  It took many many years!


Father God…the person reading this right now is in need of your help.  God…they are feeling very sad and hopeless.  It seems there’s no sunny days for them and they have tried so many different things for help.  I pray that through their sadness that they will call on you for help.  

I ask you to send help to every person who is seeking you for peace in their mind.  It’s so hard for them to cope but it’s not hard for you to heal.  Lord…hear their cry and dry their tears.  Heal their hurting heart.  Give them a peaceful sleep tonight.  Let them feel your love.  Cover them with your grace.  Thank you, God, for healing me when I cried out to you for help.  Thank you in advance for the healing people who read this prayer.  I ask these things in Jesus’ name…Amen.

                         Please…Hang in there!!!!  OK?

Hard trials? Read this!


Keep your eyes on me…I love you…I will give you peace. I WILL help you!! Keep your mind on me and…trust me!

Last week I went through a difficult situation that is still ongoing.  It’s very hard to get through ongoing difficult trials….but I have a secret for getting through them.  You can apply this to ANY situation you may go through!!  Here it is….. LOOK AT JESUS!!!, put your eyes and your thoughts on Jesus, look at His face, let His name fill your mind and when you do this God is faithful to fill your mind with peace!  I did this and I’m doing this and I tell you….it works!  You have to do this yourself…you have to reach out to the Lord and focus on Him.  My situation is still ongoing… but I have peace.  As soon as I look at my situation… the situation becomes scary and fear can creep in.

Here is a scripture that God gave us to help us:  Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!  Get this scripture in your spirit and memorize it!  Study all of God’s word because this is how you can be sure of what God can and will do for you!

This same thing happened to one of the greatest evangelist and his name was Peter.  Jesus taught him a very great lesson in Mathew 14:29-30 Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”  Peter’s eyes started the trouble for him.  He took His eyes off the master.  Never take your eyes off Jesus for any reason!!!!!  Jesus will not let go of you…but your peace of mind, your comfort, your spiritual security, your emotional support, your mental stability and your ability to “hang in there” comes from you….looking to JESUS! 

Peter called out to Jesus after he started sinking…Peter had loss his sense of peace..but I tell you Jesus would not have let him drown!!!  Jesus is there for us and the big point in my blog today is that we need to keep our mind and our eyes fixed on Jesus so that we don’t feel that sinking feeling and lose our peace of mind.  iIf we don’t keep our mind on Jesus…we begin to carry our burdens and this is not God’s plan for us!

Message for today:  I look to you oh Lord….I look to you!  Not when all my hope is gone…but before my hope is gone!  If you’ve got that sinking feeling about your situation…tilt your head back… look up…close your eyes and get a picture of Jesus in your head…look into His eyes…and trust in Him!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

I WILL look to the hills …because I know that’s where my help will come from!! I will focus my eyes on Jesus! I will concentrate on Him! When I do this I know I will have peace that passes all understanding. I need this peace! It keeps my blood pressure down…it keeps me from being anxious and stressed out! It keeps me from being afraid.(read Psalms 121:1-2)

Why should you be bound?


Psalms 118:5 In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free.

When you cried out to the Lord and asked for His forgiveness… you were set free from original sin and you are no longer bound.

John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

You are truly free and are NOT bound by the enemy’s grip on you. His hands have been smacked away from you!

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.

Because you trust the Lord and meditate on His goodness daily… your mind is not bound unless you let it be bound.

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

We have a full life in Christ so there is no need to be bound up by living in fear and having no hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

The Lord planned for our freedom a long time ago. He planned a great life for you and me…and His intentions were not for us to be bound up.

Ephesians 3:16-19 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Because of the Holy Spirit and us being filled with the fullness of God….Why SHOULD we be bound?

Message for today: If you’re feeling bound up with fear…doubt…weakness…or anything that is a stumbling block in your life…it’s time to make some adjustments in your thinking because you should not be bound…we have been set free.

My prayer for you today is this scripture: And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)  YOU ARE FREE…THINK LIKE A FREE PERSON AND GET THAT PEACE OF MIND YOU’RE ENTITLED TO! JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR SOUL, SPIRITUAL LIFE AND ETERNAL LIFE… YOUR TOTAL FREEDOM. YOU’RE GOD’S CHILD! YOU’RE FREE…GET OUT OF THE CAGE!
