New Year's Eve


What a truly amazing year it has been. This time last year I was at my parents house, filled with questions and unbelief about the things the Lord was doing in my life. Today, I am at my parents house again - and after I help them get moved out of this house - I do not know what is in store - yet I am very peaceful. All the things I experienced this year ESPECIALLY my trip to Ontario, has truly strengthened my faith in the Lord. I have no fear of the future or death or the things I was afraid of, even one short year ago. The Lord has truly proven to me that He is faithful.

I have been contemplating what my theme is for the year 2011. I have been seeking the Lord to what His will is for my theme. The first thing I think of is losing weight - but that is always on my list of resolutions. This year though, I really believe that the Lord will give me the victory in that category, because like all the categories of the flesh, the Lord wants to reveal Christ in me in that category as well.

The Lord has been truly putting 1 Corinthians 13 on my mind for the theme for next year. I know the Lord is always with me and never forsakes me. Yet, I don't always feel like I am close to the Lord. When I think about intimacy, TRUE intimacy, I realize that I have never really experienced intimacy before in my life. I have had sexual intimacy - but that is based on lust and if you scratch the surface of that lie, you find that it is not really intimacy, just a trick of the devil to make you believe that it is intimate when it is not - especially when it is not within the confines of a marriage.

When I read 1 Cor 13, I say - yeah, I've given all my possessions away and would give my body to be burned and I speak with tongues and understand ALOT of mysteries, and all the while I KNOW that I don't have charity (love) alot of the times - especially in the "is not easily provoked" category.

So my theme this year - is love. To Love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength - and to truly be intimate with the Lord - and to love my neighbors as myself.

Please pray for me when you read this. My parents are both doing good. My mom is home and the doctors think she just fainted, they did not find anything wrong with her. My dad's biopsy came back and his muscle problems were caused by the evil statins he was taking for cholesterol, which he has stopped taking and is much improved. My parents just believe it was the Lord's wake up call for them to address the too many stairs issue of their house and get into a one level house. I know that there are no accidents when walking by the Spirit and I feel that it is the Lord's will that I am here to help them.

Dear Amazing Heavenly Father, You are wonderful and gracious and merciful! Thank you so much for calling me to this walk, to wait on You, and learn from you. I lift up this next year - for myself, my family, my fellow Christians out there and for this country - that your will can be done. In Jesus name. Amen.

Walking by the Spirit


The original plan yesterday was that Dad and I were going to work on the garage some more. We now have a March 1st deadline to get this house ready to show since that is when they will be putting it on the market. They are in the process of putting in an offer on another house in a 55 and older community the next town over.

My mother came in to tell me that my dad had an "epiphany." He realized that he could get extra money from his annuity since there was a clause for getting money to buy a new primary residence. My mother was on her way out to run some errands. My dad was now going to have to apply for the special annuity money and would not be able to work on the garage. I asked my mom if she wanted me to go with her to run errands. She said, "sure, you can drive."

About 10 minutes after we left the house my mom started to feel ill. I asked her if she wanted me to turn around but she said no. We ended up pulling into a local McDonald's parking lot so she could use the bathroom, but she collapsed on the pavement. I ran into the McDonald's to ask them to call 911 and I went back to help her. I was able to get her back into the car and asked her if she had eaten (my mom is diabetic.) She said she had but I gave her some juice just in case. She was very pale and disoriented. The firemen showed up almost immediately. They checked her blood and it was not her blood sugar. But she had really low blood pressure and her heartbeat was irregular.

She is at the hospital now. They took her to the hospital and the doctor thought that she just might have fainted, but he wanted to keep her overnight for observation. She was feeling better and all the tests came back negative for any heart problems. As we talked we were amazed at the Lord's timing since my mother would have been driving and alone if I had not been with her at the last minute. Also, the firemen were at the grocery store in the same parking lot as the McDonald's and that was why they were able to respond so fast.

Dear Lord, please continue to watch over my parents and heal my mother of this infirmity and rebuke any spirits of infirmity that are attacking her, in Jesus name. Thank you Lord for watching over my parents and me and guiding our paths. Thank you for never leaving or forsaking us. In Jesus name. Amen.

Open letter to the Wicked


Thus saith the Lord God Almighty:

There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die?

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.

(Isaiah 48:22, Psalm 10:4, Psalms 58:3, Isaiah 55:7, Ezekiel 33:11, Acts 3:19, Acts 8:22, Acts 16:31)

Luke 2:7-20


And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this [shall be] a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

And when they had seen [it], they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

And all they that heard [it] wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered [them] in her heart.

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

For God so loved the world...


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

John 3:16-17

May the Lord bless all of you today, and everyday. Have a wonderful time out there!
In Jesus name. Amen.

one more piece of straw on the camel's back


Here is the president of the United States signing the law repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. First of all, there was really nothing stopping gay people from serving in the military before. They just couldn't walk around flaunting it and rubbing it in people's faces the way they will be able to now.

It really shows how reprobate the leadership of this country is, if they cannot see that this is a threat to national security. Not to mention the hardship this will be on our young men and women now serving in the military who will have to undress and shower with these people. Understand I don't hate gay people. I pray that they will repent of their preverse and sinful lifestyle and be saved. Sodomy and the homosexual lifestyle opens people up to the most wicked and debase spirits out there.

The boy next door to us, the boy I was totally in love with growing up has moved back home with his parents recently. And he brought his homosexual lover with him. Everyone in the neighborhood (most of whom are old-school Catholics) are scrambling to profess their acceptance of this couple. My parents wanted to hire the guy to clean their carpet in preparation of putting their house on the market. I was adamantly opposed to it because who knows what filthy demons he would bring into this house.

Do I sound harsh? That is because our society has become so debase that no-one can see the spiritual if not the physical ramifications and consequences to that lifestyle. No-one teaches young men and women to fight off those homosexual spirits. That is why most homosexuals believe they are born that way, because those homosexual demons start attacking these people as children and because no-one has taught them to fight against them, they just accept the lies and think, "yes, I must really be gay." It is horribly sad and tragic.

Pray for those young kids currently serving in our military that they will be protected and not negatively influenced by the soon to be in-your face homosexuality that will be bombarding them. Pray for the homosexuals you may know personally, that they can be saved and delivered from these mean, evil spirits. And pray hard for our president, because the Word directs us to pray for our leadership and because this action will come down on his head.

Dear Heavenly Father, please have mercy on our president and the homosexuals that are serving in our military and will be joining the military because of this action. That they can be delivered from this lifestyle and come to a knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and thus be saved. Help the boy next store and his partner to be saved, in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Eat such things as are set before you


When Jesus sent out the seventy, he told them to "eat such things as are set before you." (Luke 10) Jesus knew that there would be people out there who maybe didn't adhere to the dietary laws super strictly. Maybe the occasional shrimp cocktail or slab of bacon made it's way into their kitchens. Then later in 1 Corinthians 10 Paul discusses how all food is clean now in the sight of the Lord, but don't ask any questions lest you find out it was sacrificed unto idols (1 Cor 10:27)

I had hoped to be on the road before Christmas. I know all about the pagan roots of Christmas, and I don't want to participate in anything with pagan roots. I've been waiting on the Lord and saying, "If it be Your Will let me be elsewhere over the holidays." The Lord has been very clear that I'm to continue at my parents house, and He provided some spending money for me to buy Christmas presents for everyone. So in alot of ways, I just can't avoid it. Maybe you understand what I mean, maybe you don't.

My father has no sons. So I'm the one that fills in the position as 'first-born son' doing the stuff a son would do like move furniture and cart the Christmas tree up several flights of stairs. I don't mind, I'm used to it - thank the Lord it says that the proverbs 31 woman strengtheneth her arms. I got one thing right anyway.

It is very strange this year, because this may be the last Christmas we have in this house. I grew up in this house. My parents have lived in this house for 35 years. This house is home in so many ways. I think the idea of moving is hard on my parents as well, although we went to go see some one level houses and my parents are starting to get excited about the prospect of moving. They may have found a house that they are willing to put in an offer on, so that is what I have been busy doing the last couple days.

The hardest part is going through the accumulation of 35 years worth of STUFF! That is what I am helping my parents to do - to help them to let go of things. Some things are harder to let go of than others. My parents have a huge dining room table and I hated the idea they would have to get rid of it because it would be too big for the new place. All our family fits around that table! But maybe the new place will be big enough and they can take it.

And all the while - I feel the prescense of the Holy Spirit in all of this. It is no accident that I am here to help. We have not gotten the results of my fathers bi-opsy yet, but I think he is in alot more pain than he is letting on and going up and down all those stairs is killing him. It's not available to wait, they have to move to a one level. The Lord is opening doors for them to get into another place - and it may even be faster than we thought. Strangely I helped another family move last year at this time. I miss them.

So I'm not sure how regularly I will be able to post for the next couple weeks. I will try to post when I can. I am planning on doing the fast for the Omega Ministries from Dec 29-Jan 1, and then for the Jentezen Franklin corporate fast from Jan 9-30, which is the very first time I have done such a long fast. But I highly recommend you look into these fasts for yourself. They are a way to get closer to the Lord and to have answers to prayer.

May the Lord pour down blessings on you during this holiday season!~

Cursed Brew

Hi. Are you a sold out for Christ Christian who thinks it's ok to have a beer now and again? Well. I'm not going to lecture you on sin or alcohol. I'm just going to warn you that YOUR adversary, the devil, walks about searching for someone to devour. The devil doesn't even HIDE anymore! He is right out there in the open and in your face. So let's look at some of our local brews - shall we?

Arrogant Bastard:
That's a picture of your adversary right there. You drink this - you become an arrogant bastard - complete with demon. Notice it says - "You're not worthy." Who is he kidding!?

Dead Guy:
If you're not dead yet - you will be after a couple of these.

Apocalypse:
This is some scary stuff right here. It even has an all seeing eye and in smaller letters says "lifting of the veil" that's secret society speak for seeing into the spirit realm. This beer is a portal to the apocalypse. This is just the devil bragging because he actually thinks he is going to win. Tsk tsk.

And my personal favorite
Ruination:
Help yourself to the spirit of Ruination. Isn't he cute?

At the very end of days - the WHOLE WORLD will be worshipping the Beast. Go to Target and look at the book section. Every cover is black and they have titles that say "Betrayed" "Twisted" Etc. That is what our kids are reading and these are the beers they are drinking. I'm just saying that you don't know what they are putting in the beer these days. Drink at your own peril and ruination!

Please, if you are not saved, repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray to the Father that you may be spared from the evil coming on this earth!

Dear Heavenly Father - Please help those people that are under the spell of alcohol and the forces of darkness. Help them to break free of the bondage of the adversary.
Thank you for the liberty we have in Christ and that you have opened our eyes to the devices of Satan. In Jesus name. Amen.

Too-Heavenly Minded


Someone said to me recently, "Have you ever heard the saying, 'You are so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good'?"

I didn't answer. Sure I've heard that saying. It is a lie from the pit of hell. First of all, it is impossible to be TOO heavenly minded. Not enough people are heavenly minded, and if you are heavenly minded, you can always endeavor to be more. Second, I certainly don't want to be 'good' according to the world's standards.

That saying is just an attack from the enemy, to say, once again - you and all your talking about Jesus and the bible - you just don't fit in. I'm glad I don't fit in, that I'm "no earthly good." Everyday I strive to be MORE heavenly minded, to seek God AND His righteousness. To seek to enter in the narrow way and get off the broad path that leads to destruction.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that love according to your Word is doing Your Will in all things and not about our fickle feelings that ebb and flow. Thank you that you are so merciful and graceful with us every day. In Jesus name. Amen.

New World Next Week

Jesus said, "If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:12) These things are really happening in our country and our world. Dark times are coming. Pray to the Father that we can be accounted worthy to escape the things coming on the land.

Stuff going on

Here is my latest finished quilt. I finished it a couple weeks ago and gave it to my niece for her 13th birthday. I started another one yesterday that is exactly the same except this one is 5 squares by 7 where the last one was 5 by 5.

I've been making cookies to send to my children. Yesterday I made peppermint bark, russian tea cakes and some very yummy fudge. Today I will be making pecan tartlets, oatmeal cookies that have craisens and white chocolate chips and some spritz cookies.

Here are a couple articles online that amazingly hit the nail on the head for me and some of the stuff I am going through.

THE HOUR OF ISOLATION

Breakthrough - December 07, 2010

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that obedience is more important than our feelings. Thank you for always being with us and for all the trials and tribulations that you give us to perfect us and strengthen us. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

More on Fasting

Every year the Jentezen Franklin ministry does a corporate 21-day fast. It is an excellent way to start the year, spiritually. If you are interested in participating you can learn more about it here:

Jentezen Franklin Fasting Home Page

If you would like to do a Daniel Fast - which is a good fast for those who can't fast entirely - here is an excellent resource:

Those who hunger

If you want to start the year out right, consider doing a fast to the Lord. Use this month to prepare yourself.

Sidenote: I have not been able to blog daily like I would like. Alot of things are going on at the moment. It looks like my parents may have to move (their house is paid off, so that is not the reason.) It is because they have a split level house and there are stairs going up and stairs going down and it is getting very difficult for my parents to be able to navigate all the stairs. They are going to have to look into moving from the house they have lived in for 35 years and move into a single level home. It is looking at the moment that it is the will of the Lord for me to help them with all the work in moving. So I will be very busy for a while and will try to blog when I can.

The World has gone crazy! Oh - but you knew that


I saw this kit at the store the other day. It says, "Magic Science for wizards only. - Make your own wizard wand - CAST COLOR-CHANGING SPELLS - Magic at your fingertips" I was just shocked that they even sell this trash, but you should read what some mothers wrote on the comments page of this product:
DOES NOT INCLUDE SMOKING FINGER TRICK!
by AllowayMom

November 07, 2009: This kit isn't as advertised. The kit pictured has 11 activities, including a smoking finger kit. The one that arrived at our house clearly says 10 activities. The reason I chose this kit over others for my 9-yr-old daughter was the smoking finger trick, many of the experiments are similar to those in other kits (such as the Steve Spangler kits.) The wizard aspect is unique, and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow, unlike other science kits.
This mom only gave the product 3 stars and did you catch what she said? The reason she chose this was for the smoking finger trick and there was no smoking finger trick! Wow. what a nice mom. Another mom had this to say:
Too Messy
by M13

April 22, 2009: I got this kit for my 7 year old..soon to be 8 and this kit was nothing but a mess. The powders and crystal are all over the place and they tend to stain a bit. Within a few days we got rid of the kit..the only thing worth while from the kit is making the magic wand. The smoke stuff sticks everywhere and smells. Do not buy this kit it will only make you work hard for the little you spend...Good luck if you have already bought it!
These poor lost moms don't even SEE the fact that witchcraft and wizardry and sorcery are totally evil and forbidden by the word of God. This harmless seeming toy is a gateway for evil demonic spirits to enter your cute little 7-9 year old! But Harry Potter and other things just make these things acceptable. Before I was saved I read Harry Potter and let my kids read it and now I really wish I had known better - who knows what doors may have been opened by that.

Please understand that toys like this are NOT harmless. This little wizard set is very obvious, but there are similar toys that are more subtil seeming but just as dangerous spiritually.

Dear Heavenly Father. Please open the eyes of these moms and protect these children from dangerous toys that teach witchcraft and sorcery. In Jesus name. Amen.

Thankfulness from Michael Boldea

Here is a wonderful little teaching on Thankfulness from Micheal Boldea. You can here more at his website Hand of Help Ministries








Please pray for this man

This is really so horrific. Eric Holder? is going to come out and say, "umm, yeah, it's not entrapment." Right. Like that man doesn't lie. This was a co-ordinated set-up by the FBI to keep the lie of "home-grown terrorism" alive.

Please pray for this poor fool kid. I mean, have you talked to an actual 19 year old lately? Once in a while you might get one that you can have an intelligent conversation with, but most of the time, 19 year olds are dumb as a rock. These FBI people know mind-control techniques and there is no way this kid could conceive of having a whole van full of explosives with out the FBI supplying it. Now they will throw the book at him to prove their point. Please pray for this boy to get saved and have the Lord's protection on him and that this court can prove that the real fault lies in the brain-washing FBI agents.

I'm far more scared that we have active FBI cells in my city plotting the destruction of christmas tree lightings with idiots than I am that there are any actual home-grown terrorists! This place is definately going crazy!

Dear merciful heavenly Father. Help this poor boy. That he can be saved and that you will watch out for him since he was so very obviously set up by our own government to be a patsy. Have mercy on him and his family. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

We are the houses in Egypt


I was reading in Exodus today about the original passover when the children of Israel put the blood of the passover lamb on the lentils and doorposts. (Exodus 12) I was struck by the fact that now, in our day, we are the houses that are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ and the destroyer cannot touch us.

Oooo! I hate the devil. All day long he tries to tell me that I am not a child of God. That I should just get a job already and move out of my parents house. In obedience I wait here, knowing this truth:

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Psalm 127:1

Where would I go to find a job, if the Lord has not given me the job? Where would I drive to if the Lord has not sent me? Where could I run to where the Lord would not be with me? No. I stay here and wait upon the Lord because this is the provision that He has provided.

The way is straight and the gate is narrow. The cross is what is expected of us to get every last bit of Egypt out and the hope of glory Christ with in. There is no going back to drinking beer and smoking cigarettes and playing video games. That life is gone now, it is vanity and empty wasting of time, marking down the days till death activities. Crazy black friday shopping sales and HDTV. So much meaningless conversation. No one wants to talk about the Lord, or His Word, they definately don't want to talk about sin and the cross. Thank God, I know I have fellow brethren out here in cyberspace that feel the same way during the holidays.

Get thee behind me Satan, I am not going back to the old life and the old loves.

Thank you so much Lord for your promises that we can hold onto and resist the devil so that he will flee from us. Thank you that nothing can pluck me out of your hand. Thank you for being in me, for your Holy Spirit, for the blood of Jesus that covers us and justifies us and sanctifies us from this low down dirty world. In the name and authority of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The finger of God

When Pharoah's magicians could no longer counterfeit the plagues the Lord was sending on Egypt they exclaimed, "This is the finger of God (Elohim)!" The magicians could not duplicate the plague of lice using devil spirit power, like they had before with the blood and the frogs. (Ex 8:19)

The original stone tables of testimony given to Moses at Mt. Sinai were written with the finger of God. (Ex 31:18, Deu 9:10)

David the Psalmist wrote about the fingers of God when he said, "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained" (Psalms 8:3)

Jesus also said he used the finger of God to cast out demons. (Luke 11:20)

The finger of God represents God's amazing power. God can send plagues, put the stars in their orbits, cast out demons, whatever He wants because nothing is impossible for Him. God has more power in his little finger than the adversary can even dream about! With His one finger, he could squish the devil like a bug.

Dear Heavenly Father, You are so wonderful and awesome. Thank you for your Word that we may know about your amazing power and might and mercy and truth. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Day After...


I was going to have a post for Thanksgiving yesterday, but I got in too late and did not have time. I have so many things I am thankful for, and I always want to give God Almighty the glory for the many blessings in my life.

I am especially thankful that I am in a warm bed these days and not sleeping in my van since it has been in the low 20's here lately. In the dark yesterday, coming back from the farm, I praised the Lord for the food and the protection and for opening my eyes to the things going on around me. I said, "Lord, I am so thankful for this wilderness journey you have called me to. But I wonder, I do not have a specific vision that you have given me. I need a purpose in my life." The Lord answered me and said, "It's a surprise."

When I think of that I think of someone leading me into a room with their hands over my eyes, and that soon, they will take off their hands and yell "surprise!". In those situations the anticipation is that good things will happen when you open your eyes again. I believe that is why I do not know what the Lord's specific plan for my life is. Part of the idea is to trust the Lord for every provision.

Recently I wrote a list of my needs to the Father. I told the Lord that I needed new sneakers because my old ones developed a hole in the heel that had a hard piece of plastic sticking out and rubbing on my heel and giving me a blister. I also needed some "walking around money" since I only had .80 cents. The next day someone gave me $15 and my dad took me to the store and bought me a brand-new pair of Nike's because he wouldnt hear of me having some cheap pair from Target. I really felt that was 'abundantly above what I could ask or think' on that. Thank you Lord!

I was reading in Exodus and two specific verses jumped out at me:
Exodus 3:6, "Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God."

Exodus 4:2-3, "And the Lord said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it."
Twice Moses was afraid in these verses. Yet we know that Moses later did many brave things and went to see God face to face and was not afraid. The wilderness and the experiences with the plagues of Egypt changed Moses into a mature believer who truly trusted God to not be afraid of God, or serpents!

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for all provisions, for food in abundance, for warm beds and surprises. Thank you for having a plan for my life and for always being with me. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Yesterday's blogpost

Awww, no one tried to decipher yesterday's blogpost. It said, "This message is in code because I am reading the book Code-Breaking by Rudolf Kippenhahn. Hope you had fun!" Anyway, I thought about it just now and thought, wow! I hope no-one thinks I am putting a spell on here! Just reading about the encryption done through history and WWII. Very interesting.

Here is some very inspired posts around the web that I recommend reading:

Stuck - A word from the Lord


I recently found the blog for Lastrumpet08 which has a daily word from the Lord, but today really struck me as exactly how I am feeling. It is such a great comfort to know that there is a time for everything. I am going to post todays post from there in it's entirety:
Stuck - November 16, 2010
Some feel they are stuck, their relationship with Me is not moving forward, there is no progress in their walk with Me. It feels as though they are not going anywhere at all. They feel miserable about their situation. They feel unsettled, they feel they do not belong or fit in anywhere.

My children there is a time for everything. I prepare and change you to become useable and suitable to fulfill My plans and purposes in My Kingdom. I cannot use or send you out if you are not prepared by Me. I alone know the plans I have for you. I work all things out for good at My time. Do not lose focus or hope. Keep moving forward, do not get stuck. Trust Me.

If you are stuck, press on harder and you will break through. Do not stay stuck, do not become complacent. Seek Me more, draw closer to Me and listen to what I want to reveal to you, the things that are important to Me and My Kingdom. Not your will be done, but Mine. Many are stuck in their own plans and ideas. I am in control. I know the end from the beginning. Trust Me and follow My guidance and you will not get stuck.

Some are stuck in sin. Sin separates them from My presence, they do not hear My voice and will not progress. They feel far away from Me and cannot move forward to do My will. Repent, turn away from all wickedness. The devil wants you stuck in his snares of wickedness. Break out, come loose, be set free. He whom I have set free will be free indeed. I have come so that you can have life in abundance.

Here is the link to this post: http://wordinduetime.blogspot.com/2010/11/stuck-november-16-2010.html

I recommend stopping by the word in due season site daily: Lastrumpt08

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you so much so your reassurance in all things. Thank you that your timing is perfect, down to the last minute and you are so awesome in preparing us to be vessels for your use. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Unforgiveness: Gateway to Torment


When I was around 18 years old, I had an uncle that was an alcoholic. His girlfriend called me and asked if I would go over to his house because he was planning on relapsing after having a years sobriety and she could not get there because she was out of town.

Stupidly I went there by myself to try to stop him. I talked to him and pleaded with him and grabbed his car keys, but he was 35 and alot stronger than me. He overpowered me and got his keys and left the house. That night he got into a car accident and broke both of his wrists. I did not speak to him for 12 years.

Fast forward to when I was 35 and not so innocent and not so self-righteous. He was dying of esophageal cancer. I wrote him a letter telling him that I forgave him for everything and that I was very sorry he was sick. I did not hear back from him before he died. I have always regretted the fact that I did not forgive him sooner, and the fact that I'm sure he suffered far worse for that stupid car accident than I ever did.

Since becoming a Christian, I have learned that unforgiveness is a gateway to demons. It is documented in the following verses:
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took [him] by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. Matt 18:21-35

The tormentors in that verse are demons. Unforgiveness opens you up to demons who will cause that to be a weight on your life that will just get heavier and heavier. If you can't seem to forgive people in your past or your life, pray to your Father to help you to forgive them, because forgiveness is always the Lord's will.

Dear Heavenly Father, help me to be forgiving to anyone who has trespassed against me (whether real or imagined.) Thank you Lord for the many many things you have forgiven me in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Just checking in


Just thought I would let you know some of the happenings around here.

My little niece lost her first tooth. My dad asked her if the tooth fairy brought her anything. She said, "Yes! 20 dollars!" !!! We all laughed. Who knew that baby teeth were such a valuable commodity these days.

My parents next-door neighbor whom we have known since grade school was just diagnosed with lung cancer. I have been praying for healing and deliverance for him. Please lift him up for healing if you read this.

I finished this white and blue quilt top and basted it. So I can start quilting on it soon. This might be the best one yet.

I have been fasting and praying for there to be unity in the body, and clear directions on what the Lord's Will is for my life. Where I am to go and what I am to do. So far, it seems to be, stay here and do what I am doing. I am tempted to be lonely but that is just satan trying to get me to believe that Christ is less than my sufficiency in everything. I am tempted to be depressed, but I know that demon and I rebuke it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am tempted to be impatient - which is why I believe the Lord is having me wait - so that I learn to be content no matter where I am or for how long. I feel I am ready to leave the wilderness and go into the promised land. My feelings are not important, only the will of the Father.

Pray for me, my internet friends. I will pray for you as well.

Dear Heavenly Merciful Father. Thank you so much for all you do in my life. Thank you for getting my eyes off of myself and onto your son Jesus. Thank you for how you lead me out of temptations, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Two dreams and Egypt:



Here is the interpretation of the dream that I believe is something that we all need to hear in order to fight the spiritual battle:



This interpretation is true. Jesus in the wilderness always fought Satan with just the Word of God. We must all study and have the Word on in our minds because that is the weapons of our warfare!

Dear Heavenly Father thank you for always giving us Your Word in order to sharpen our Swords to fight this spiritual battle and the gates of hell will not prevail against us. In Jesus name. Amen.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes...


Ok, so I may have been a little harsh about the Door of Hope church. The guy there emailed me today with a recommendation for a church that is close to where I am so I may check it out. I like to pray on these things to seek the Father's will before I decide. There is an informal bible study tomorrow night so I may go if I feel it is the leading of the spirit.

David Wilkerson had a great post today. He said, "You are either changing daily into Christ's image or you are changing back into your old carnal ways." You can read the whole post here. He was talking about finishing the race. There is NO turning back in this game. You are either pushing towards the mark of the high calling or you are falling away, there is NO gray area.

Today my dad and I went to work on the storage unit. We were only there for about 45 minutes but we got so much done during that amount of time, and hauled another 5 boxes of stuff to Goodwill. My dad said, "Wow, we got alot of stuff done in less than an hour." I said, "Yes, if we could work on it for even an hour a day we could get the job finished in no time." Of course, I want to spend more time than an hour, but sometimes if all you can do is an hour, than that is good enough.

The way to climb a mountain is by taking the first step. With God, nothing is impossible. Seek the Lord to find out His Will for your life and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. If you take the first step in seeking the Lord, He will tell you where to take the next step.

Long distance runners train before they run a marathon. They train for endurance - and they also learn how to pace themselves and to find ways of resting even as they are running. Finishing the race is often more important than winning.

I know that these lulls of staying at my parents and helping them according to the Lord's will, are times of spiritual training. It's a time for me to study the Word, to believe God for my needs and fast and pray and seek the Lord. It's also a time for me to learn endurance and patience as Christ is formed in me, because it is hard for me to stay at my parents and do the mundane day to day stuff. In the past it has been easier to have days full of busyness than quietness. But learning to be quiet before the Lord is a very important spiritual lesson as well.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for how you are molding me into the image of your son Jesus Christ and for all the amazing ways you answer my prayers each and every day. Thank you for being with me every step of the way as you change me according to your Will. In the name of Jesus Christ! Amen!

Door of Hope - Slammed

Weird. I contacted the Door of Hope church because I wanted to see if I might be able to catch a ride with someone and I was informed that they are a "community" church and not a "commuter" church. Ouch. I'm on the road alot and although I am currently at my parents, I could just as easily be staying in Portland if it was the Father's will. But I think that this is the Lord's way of showing me that this is NOT the church for me, even though I felt I had some confirmations earlier.

The more I think about it, the more that I am amazed at what church has become. It's just not about the body of Christ anymore but about our own little corner of the world: We just want the people that live in our neighborhood to come to our church - sorry if you were looking for the Word of God here. Maybe I wanted to check out the church and then move there? But too bad, so sad.

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for always being with me and loving me. Thank you for a door of hope being opened somewhere else! Thank you for your Grace and Mercy and Love in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

A Door of Hope


This is the verses that I read this morning:
Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.

And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. Hosea 2:14-15
The valley of Achor was the valley of trouble - where they stoned Achan and his family in Joshua 7 after Achan stole some of the spoil. So the verse is talking about changing the valley of trouble and despair, (and past sins) and making it into a door of hope.

The purpose for being in the wilderness, (like where I am at the moment) is to get all of Egypt out of the people. The past idolatries, the secret sins, the world, all of it, cleansed out of you. And as I have so wonderfully discovered, it's just not something you can do on your own. The Lord has to speak comfortably unto us and change our wretched valley of death and sorrow into the door of hope in Christ.

No amount of thought can add one cubic to your stature - or apparantly subtract one either. :) Especially when the dirtier you are - the more cleaning up there is to do on you. The Father is HOLY and He expects us to be holy too. But He is the one who can clean us up, not ourselves. Our job, is to submit to the cleansing.

Did you ever give a dog a bath? Well, now try giving a ferret one! When I first had Flash (my ferret) he HATED having a bath. I think the previous owner must have been mean to him at bathtime, because when Flash was older and trusted me, he was alot better at bathtime and seemed to enjoy it more than at first - although he never really did like it. It must be like that for the Lord sometimes when we don't co-operate. Although, the Lord isn't going to get his arms all scratched up over it. If we fight Him, He will just leave us in our filth. Gross. I don't want to be filthy, Please Lord, Cleanse me from all unrighteousness.

Interestingly enough - I found a local church called Door of Hope today and have been listening to their audios. Nice. I may contact them and check them out, although they are in SE Portland and I am on the westside. But I am going to pray about it and see what the Lord's will is concerning it.

Dear Lord Heavenly Father - I submit - cleanse me Lord that I can be a vessel for your use and do Your Will and not my own. Thank you so much for your word, for always being with me and never forsaking me and for your wonderful son, Jesus Christ our Savior. Thank you that we can have a door of hope, that what you have started in us, you will finish. That we have the hope that Christ is being formed in us, and the hope of the glory in Christ. In Jesus name. Amen.

Psalms 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Just saying...Updated at bottom


There is a lot of weird stuff going on lately. I'm just going to present some links and you decide for yourself. I highly recommend that you seek the Lord with fasting and praying to know what His Will is for you in the next couple weeks. Maybe nothing is going to happen but I find it odd that the president is leaving the country with 34+ warships, several aircraft and over 3000 staff members.

34 warships sent from US for Obama visit

False Flag Nuke Date Nov 6 ?

Whatever CERN was doing today (like possibly opening portals or even the abyss) they were successful.

Operation Blackjack - (November 7, 2010 is a blackjack date = 11+7+2+1 = 21)

Some stuff I do not have links to. If you did not get a chance to read Garden Girls Running from Babylon piece on why Obama was going to India at this time, it's too late because she has taken it down. But she speculated that Obama was going there for some sort of "birthing of the Maitreya" ritual. It may have been speculation, but there IS a spiritual war going on in this world. Like I said, I'm just presenting things. I don't know anything for sure or even that I believe that something is going to happen. But when Russ Dizdar starts talking about it, that has my attention. This is todays radio show:










Alot of people who call themselves prophets are saying that the judgement of the Lord is coming. Alot of people called prophets of God are saying the judgement is coming. Russ Dizdar is talking about the Black Awakening, a counterfeit Pentecost from the dark side. The book of Revelation talks about the opening of the abyss. Lots of speculation is happening on both sides.

But it does bother me that the president and alot of higher ups important people are leaving the country and Hillary Clinton is already out of the country and I can practically hear the dark side licking their chops. The Georgia Guidestones state the forces of evil want to take the population down to 500,000 million. There is also the recent stuff out from Lindsay Williams. There is a planned demolition of this country and sooner or later Satan is implimenting his evil plans.

God is sovereign. The adversary can do nothing with out the Lord signing off on it. So whether something is going to happen immediately or later, pray that you can be counted worthy to escape these things coming on the earth. If you are not saved, seek the Lord NOW and believe on Jesus Christ and repent and turn your life and will over to Jesus and study the bible.

Dear Heavenly Father, have mercy on us and protect us from the plans of the evil one. Thy Will be done always. In Jesus name. Amen.

UPDATE! - The government is denying that the president is taking 34 warships. What a surprise - denial, isn't that what they always do? Nothing to see here people, go back to sleep!

Today's reading

I have been helping my sister move into her new home and helping my parents go through their stuff. We have taken 17 boxes of stuff to Goodwill and thrown away countless bags of garbage. I am waiting on the Lord to where I go next from here, but for now it seems the Lord's will is for me to stay here and finish helping. Please pray for me to have clear instructions on where I am to go next.

Here is some great articles I have read on the net today:

OK TO be GAY & CHRISTIAN? SHOULD We SPEAK OUT?

Parallel Universes


In the next couple months NASA is going to launch a series of experiments to search for parallel universes. NASA is one of the highest occult organizations out there. They are the LAST people I would want poking around in the fabric of the universe. The bible tells us that there IS a parallel universe to ours. It's called the spirit realm. It is all around us but it is invisible and we can't see it with our naked eyes. Only when the Lord reveals it to us can it be seen.

In 2nd Kings 6 - the city where Elisha was located, is surrounded by an invading army. Elisha's servent is freaking out but then "... Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain [was] full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." 2 Kings 6:17. The Lord revealed to Elisha's servent the armies that were in the spirit realm that were fighting for Isreal and Elisha.

There is a battle raging in the spirit realm. It is getting more and more intense and we need to be spiritually prepared according to Ephesians 6:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. EPH 6:10-17

Dear Heavenly Father, we ask that you open our eyes to truth. We ask that you surround us with fiery protection and teach us Your Will so that we can obey and strengthen us in the spiritual battle. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Lord's Provision

Long time readers of this blog know that in the past, when I have gotten my insurance bill, it has stressed me out. I believed the Father to have the bill paid, but I would worry and fret until it was paid. Worry and fret are unbelief. You can read one of my past posts about it:

O me of little faith

But since coming back from Ontario I trust the Lord more fully. I had received my triple AAA bill which is about $57. I currently have no income so I put it on the alter of the Lord and said, "My dear Heavenly Father, I trust you to pay this bill because I am where you want me to be on this journey and you have promised that you would take care of all my needs." So that bill sat on my dresser for two weeks. (It is not really due until December.)

I did not worry or fret. When I noticed it or thought about it, I just continued to pray and thank the Lord for that bill being taken care of.

Then my other insurance bill came in the mail. It was for $89. Now I had two bills that needed to be paid. So I once again put it on my dresser and thanked the Lord for His amazing provision.

Today, both those bills are paid and in the mail. Isn't God amazing!!!

Dear Heavenly Father - thank you so much for paying those bills and for the food that I have to eat and the clothes on my back, the gas in my van and the shelter and warm bed I am currently sleeping in. Thank you for always having my back in all situations. Thank you for all this and more in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen.

Glass in the flour


I did not sleep well last night. I woke up several times and immediately started praying in tongues. I felt as if a great spiritual battle was taking place. When I woke up this morning, I felt battleworn.

I had a dream the other night where I was filling a glass pickle jar with flour. The next thing I knew, the jar had broken. I was very upset by that. I wasn't upset about the jar, since it was just an old pickle jar. But I was very upset about the flour because there was glass in it now. You can't just pick out the pieces of glass and still use the flour, because there could be microscopic shards that you can't see. All the flour would have to be thrown out.

I thought about what would happen if you used the flour to make bread. It reminded me of what satan has done to the truth. There is doctrine out there that is like eating bread that has microscopic pieces of glass in it. It looks like bread. It smells homemade just like bread. It tastes like bread. But once you eat it, it rips you up from the inside out, but you would not be able to figure out why.

a little leaven leavens the whole lump.

Doctrine is a tricky thing. The same verse of scripture that teaches a babe in Christ milk, also fills the mature believer with meat. The Lord is the one that reveals truths to us in His Word. There are people who are ever-learning and never come to a knowledge of the Truth. Then there is the adversary who likes to get his evil twist on things and put it out there as the truth. Jesus is the Truth and the Bread of Life. Every scripture is about Him and needs to be looked at with the filter of Christ. The truth is precious and it is only the love of the truth that saves people from the strong delusion. Examine what your are eating, whether it is pure truth from above, or tainted polluted doctrine from below. The time when they will not endure sound doctine is the days we are living in.

Dear Heavenly Father, please show us the truth of your pure word from the doctines of devils and the error of the world. Thank you for always being with us and teaching us with your Holy Spirit, line upon line, precept upon precept. Thank you for your Son Jesus Christ - who is the truth and the bread of life. Thank you for giving us your Word, that we may know You and your love for us. In Jesus name. Amen.

Closed Minded

So. My dad and I went to my aunt's house today to pick up some of the left-over flowers from the wedding. We sat and had some coffee and had a conversation that went something like this:

Aunt: "So. Linda. You are the last of the daughters to be married off."

Me: "Yep"

Aunt: "So. Are you putting yourself out there? I remember years ago that I use to go to these Christian singles meetings, of course, that was YEARS ago!"

Me: "I don't even think I am ready to get married. But if it is the Lord's will for me to get married, I'm sure He will provide the perfect husband."

Aunt: "Oh! I have something for you to read. But you have to have an open mind."

Dad: "Hhmmm..Linda is not known for her open-mindedness."

Me: "Yeah! My mind only opens so much."

My aunt left the room and came in with a little booklet titled, "Testamony of a Roman Catholic."

Me: "No thanks, I'm not reading that."

Aunt: "But it is written by someone who is not a Catholic. It answers alot of the questions about the church. Why we believe what we believe. I think that so many people have left the church because they have not had their questions answered."

Me: "sorry. I'm not reading that. I have answers to all my questions."

Aunt: "Tsk. A closed mind."

Later as we were driving home and I was thinking about that conversation, I just started to pray to the Lord for my aunt. I've already talked to her about the idolatry of the Catholic church and there was no point in talking about it again today. I AM closed minded when it comes to the doctrine and idolatry of the Catholic Church. I khow all about them and the spirits of errors that come with. The Catholic church exalts Mary and waters down the truth about Jesus. They preach another Jesus and don't even know it. It is sad.

Being open-minded to doctrines of demons is NOT something I want to do.

Thank you my wonderful sweet Heavenly Father, for being with me and I lift up to you my aunt and others who are still in the Catholic church and need deliverance. In Jesus name. Amen.

Liberty

Liberty. Everyone is talking about it these days. Liberty is freedom. Those of us who grew up here in the United States of America have a skewed idea of what liberty is. All our lives we are told that we have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness guaranteed as rights within the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We are told we live in a "free" country. Maybe we were a free country once upon a time, but we aren't any longer. People who thought they "owned" a house have to keep paying for it long after it has been paid off in the form of taxes. After you have worked 40 hours and 20 hours of overtime, when you get your paycheck a third of it has been stolen before you even get to cash that check. If you own a car you can't drive it unless you have paid for registration, licencing and fees, not to mention monthly insurance premiums.

We have the "freedom" to pay FICA taxes, Medicare and Social Security before we get our checks, then afterwards we can pay our rent, electricity, water, sewer, garbage, car insurance, phone bill, cable bill (unless we are smart and throw our tv's out the window!), put gas in the car, buy some groceries, and then sit and wait another two weeks for some more money, because that check is gone. We have the freedom to drink some beer and watch the game and wonder why it is all so hopeless in this evil satanic realm where bondage is called liberty. If you are really in the know, you are aware of the fact that our government has sold the american people to the federal reserve and we are truly slaves of that system, where every dollar we earn is not real money but just more debt. Whatever it is, what the world has to offer, it is not liberty.

There is only one who can give us TRUE liberty. That is Christ.

Read Galations 5. The Galations were being hounded to be circumcised by the religious Jews. But you could practically replace the word circumcision with [whatever legal thing you want] and the truth would still apply. Paul told them, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Gal 5:1 and again, "I would they (those that were pushing the law (circumcision) on the Galations) were even cut off which trouble you, For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh (as in don't use your freedom in Christ as an excuse to sin) but by love serve on another. For all the law is fulfilled in ONE WORD, even in this - Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." Gal 5:12-14

We are not under the law. Christ came to fulfill the law and now we are at liberty. We are set free from the bondage of sin and the bondage of the law. If you still have bondage in your life and you are a born again believer, seek the Lord for deliverance and answers. If you are in a ministry or church that tries to put you under laws of holy days and styles of dress or you can't eat meat etc., then you are not living the life of liberty that you have been given in Christ. If you are not saved yet, Jesus Christ died for you too and the free gift of salvation is available to you. Get a bible and start reading the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and seek the Father and He will answer you. If you need help, you can email me at wendyworn@yahoo.com and I can help direct you to some online ministries that walk by the Spirit of God that can help.

Jesus Christ said that He came to set the captives free. He also said that He was the way the truth and the life. That we could know the Truth and the Truth can set us free. That is the only true liberty. Now is the time to seek the Lord and Now is the time to repent and turn from your sins and be washed with the water of the Word. We are entering very dark days in this country and any so-called liberties you may have thought you had before will be gone. The only safe place to be (even now) will be under the protection of our Heavenly Father and Our savior Jesus Christ.

Dear Heavenly Father. Thank you for true liberty in your son Jesus Christ - who died for us so that we could be free. Thank you for your protections and provisions during tribulations. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Wedding - The day after


The wedding yesterday was beautiful. Pastor Brett from Athey Creek married my sister and her fiance. It was really great because he came in and prayed with all the bridesmaids and then went and prayed with the groomsmen before the ceremony. During the ceremony he stressed the importance of having Jesus Christ as the head and that He needs to be the center of the marriage. It was truly inspiring and I know the happy couple were very blessed. I was going to post a picture of me in my bridesmaid dress, but the camera adds something like a hundred pounds so I decided not to.

It is raining really hard today and there is boxes and boxes of wedding stuff and other things that have to be gone through and organized, but first we need to take my niece (the flower girl) home to the coast. She slept in my bed last night. When she first crawled in bed, she said, "Auntie Linda, if you snore then I am going to be very mad at you." Then she promptly fell asleep and started snoring. She is so cute. I told my parents that I think we should tackle the organization of the house and garage the same way we did with the wedding planning, with lists and schedules for the days, so we will get to a point when the job is done. Yesterday we were so tired after the wedding that we didn't even empty the cars out. So we will see.

Thank you Lord for all the blessings you pour out to us every day. Thank you for being in every detail of the wedding, that it was such a nice ceremony and everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you for always being with us and I just lift up my life to you, that I may know your will for my future so that I can obey. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Lord's Supper


Unleavened Bread Ministries had a wonderful communion service last night. For those of you who don't have a regular ministry to go to, this is a wonderful way to participate.

I made my unleavened bread using the recipe I got from this website: My Little Kitchen but I didn't score it the way she did. I was a little leary of the whole sunburst pattern.

A good way to prepare is to listen to last weeks sermon which is found here.

Here is the communion service from last night:










The wedding is day after tomorrow. I will probably not blog until Sunday. Blessings to all of you in Jesus name.

The Lord my shield


I know I said I wouldn't be back until Oct 25th, but you know how sometimes the word of the Lord just burns in your mouth and you cannot hold it in any longer?

My desire is to do the will of the Lord and to learn how to submit in a Jezebel society. I see the wrongness of the women who stand in the pulpit and teach the congregations. I see the women who beat down their husbands with their words and never submit to their husbands. I see the women bucking the governmental authority.

I also see the brothers who never admit they are wrong and put all the blame on the women. You cannot have a Jezebel spirit without the workings of the Ahab spirit. You can not have a woman usurp the authority of a man, if that man has not allowed it to happen. I see the men who spiritually abuse the single women and say, don't talk back, you are supposed to be submitting and quiet. You cannot blame one sex without blaming the other.

I know that I fully lived in deception concerning submitting when I was in the world. How could I know anything different having been raised in this evil world with the Jezebel and Ahab example being my only teacher? I couldn't.

But now I have been washed. Now I have been sanctified. Now the Holy Spirit Himself teaches me how to submit to the authorities and to Christ first. I don't have a husband.

All my life in the world I was beat up and abused. I spent alot of time building up defences and ways of protecting myself until I became battle-hardened. Undoing these bad habits takes time. Every time I blow it, I cry out to the Lord to change me. Lord make me a meek and quiet spirit. Help me to submit when I'm supposed to and open my mouth when I'm suppose to. Make me a vessel clean for your use.

I realized that I was afraid to take down those walls and those protections. I trusted in my own defenses. I told the Lord my fear. If I let down my defenses what if I get hurt. (I know, I'm supposed to crucify my life. Don't you know that is what I'm trying to do? That is between me and the Lord.)

Then the Lord showed me that He is my sheild. He will be the one that stops the fiery darts of the wicked from penetrating into my heart and wreaking havoc there. He will be the one that puts my armor on for battle and it will be His protection that keeps me safe. He will be the potter that makes me into a new vessel.

O Thank you my sweet Heavenly Father. For your constant protection. For never leaving me in the midst of this spiritual battle alone. For always blessing me with all spiritual blessings. In the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Black & Blue - Back on October 25, 2010

This is my black and blue baby quilt. I finished it a couple days ago. I screwed up on it so bad! It was smaller than I wanted it so I decided to put a border on it. I think that was a bad idea from the start because the material for the border cost me $13 and I don't have alot of money for extras.

Then the top of the quilt was 26 inches but the bottom of the quilt was 28 inches. I don't know how that happened. So by the time I used the rotary cutter to make the quilt square so I could add the border, the bordered quilt was the same size as the original. Plus I now have a much healthier respect for the "measure twice, cut once" concept.

Then of course - I made the mistake of using the heavy-duty setting on the washing machine instead of the gentle, so I had some popped seams. Just another reminder to take things slow.

There are seven days until the wedding, and we are pretty busy with all the last-minute details. So I don't think I will be able to blog much until it is over. I will be back on October 25th. I pray my Heavenly Father will watch out for you all! God bless you!

NW Next week

Orange. It's the new Green!

This is the logo for the Orange cirriculum. It is a very scary brain-washing technique for all ages! Starting from two years and up! Here you can read: "If toddlers begin living out their values by age two, then how can we shape those values in their first 24 months?" It goes on to talk about God and Jesus and the Creator, but that is how this whole concept is very subtle. (how can WE shape those values?) yeah, they want to take a child's natural wonder at the world around them and focus it into what "they" want the child to think and believe. Find that in the Word!

It is even brought to you by reThink group! Oh! and then there are the Family Virtue packs that, "FamilyTimes™ Virtue Packs provide activities to be used once a week during each of these four family times--MealTime, DriveTime, BedTime, and MorningTime. All of this is designed to give parents simple ways to help their kids grow in faith and character.

The resources you will find in the Virtue Pack are designed to be strategically placed within your home as reminders of a specific virtue and its related principles each month. They should be placed in the location that corresponds with the time they are to be used. These pieces will be constant reminders to you and your children and help you to prioritize each of the four FamilyTimes™. As you go through the virtue pack you will notice that it introduces you to all the pieces and explains the concepts in more detail." Awwww! Virtues! Everybody wants those! Hurry! their on clearance right now!

I do recommemd that you go to the Orange website and discern for yourself the new marketing plan the adversary has designed to further blind the undiscerning masses. Don't be fooled by the few referrences to God and Jesus, that's just to hook you in and make you believe that this is truly Christian. It is a far far cry from the simplicity of Christ! If Satan can get the Christians to think the way he wants them to think (especially if he can start really early in their lives!) then he can suck the power right out of them. It's like reading a catholic bible. They've changed the words just enough to literally steal the Holy Spirit out of it.

But my favorite part is when they say, that Orange is a blending of yellow and red. Wow, how profound. "Orange is a path, a strategy that combines the strength of two—yellow and red—to create the brilliance of another, Orange. By combining the critical influences of the light of the church and the love of the family, the Orange strategy synchronizes efforts and shows a generation who God is, more effectively than either could alone." hhmmm, yeah, which god? Who writes this stuff!

Don't be fooled. The Lord wants us to have a relationship with Him, but He will set the standard, not some happy happy joy joy brainwashing cirriculum!

P.S. Look at the logo. Do you see the all seeing eye? yeah, I thought you did! GRRR!
