Donate for Disaster Relief in Texas

I just realized that though I may not be able to donate supplies to those in need in Texas, I can help spread word about Red Cross donations for them! Every dollar counts so if $1 is all you can spare, you are helping. I was only able to spare a few dollars myself.

If you cannot help, praying does also help! For newer readers, I wrote a whole blog about the power of prayer and I still believe that prayer is powerful, so when more than 1 person is praying for the same thing (for everyone in Texas in this case), then it makes the prayer even more powerful because Jesus is there as we pray (see Matthew 18:19-20)!

Here is the link for anyone who is able to (and will) donate: https://www.redcross.org/donate/hurricane-harvey?scode=RSG00000E017&utm_campaign=Harvey&gclid=Cj0KCQjw557NBRC9ARIsAHJvVVM4qjk0cChb60aWj2EcWs9ALXvG4bHCdfdm_qA22yt85XcDs5itGOEaAjqlEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=COb-3M6Yg9YCFQ3WZAod46UKvQ

Remember this…

God loves a cheerful giver! (2 Corinthians 9:7)! And “those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.Proverbs 11:25

Thank you all for your prayers and to those who have already, or will help either directly send supplies or donate to Red Cross so they can raise enough to give Texas the supplies they need right now!

God bless to all of you! And if any of you reading this are in Texas or have family or friends in Texas, my thoughts and prayers are with you as well!

Please Continue to Pray for Texas!

Dear faithful readers,

As I continue seeing videos, photos, and reading about the updates on the massive destruction done to Texas and the number of people dying rising, my heart continues to break more and more. I am deeply distressed, not only for my friend and her family or for my spiritual family who have family members there, but because Hurricane Harvey is a Monster taking peoples lives, homes, and jobs and just about everything else, and isn’t stopping! Remember Jesus’ promise in Matthew 18:20 that where two or three (or more) are gathered and are in agreement, what they ask for will be granted!

But God made a promise long before that. Who remembers the flood during Noah’s time in Genesis 6-8, and the covenant promise in chapter 9? God flooded the whole world because of people’s wickedness and only Noah and his family survived – only 8 people lived because only Noah’s family would get on the ark and be saved! In Chapter 8 of Genesis, verse 21, God promises “And the LORD was pleased with the aroma of the sacrifice and said to himself, “I will never again curse the ground because of the human race, even though everything they think or imagine is bent toward evil from childhood. I will never again destroy all living things.” And in Genesis 9:11-17 God makes the same promise but elaborates on that promise: “Yes, I am confirming my covenant with you. Never again will floodwaters kill all living creatures; never again will a flood destroy the earth.” Then God said, “I am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come. I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds, and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life. When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth.” Then God said to Noah, “Yes, this rainbow is the sign of the covenant I am confirming with all the creatures on earth.””

Genesis 9:11-17
https://www.bible.com/bible/116/GEN.9.11-17

God promised to never again let a flood destroy the ground or wipe out the human race, and even gave a sign in the form of a rainbow so He would remember this promise He made whenever He sees the rainbow.

Let us include this in our prayer! Will you pray with me?

Dear Heavenly Father, You promised back in the time of Noah that you would never again curse the ground or destroy the whole earth or wipe out the human race in your anger, and even gave Noah the sign of a rainbow as a reminder for You that You would never do it again. We ask you in Your Son Jesus’ Beloved Name to remember this promise you made to Noah and his family and stop Hurricane Harvey and also do not let Irma turn into a Hurricane or tropical storm to form more damage than already done by Harvey, and that You make the flood recede completely. We also pray in the name of Jesus for you to bring comfort, peace, and healing to those who have lost loved ones because of Hurricane Harvey, lost their homes, and/or lost their jobs/workplace and everything else destroyed by the hurricane and restore their homes and workplaces with even better (and Hurricane Proof) homes and buildings for their workplaces. Keep everyone safe from this moment forward LORD. May You do as You promise in Zechariah 9:12 and give everyone affected double blessings for each of their troubles. Thank You LORD, for hearing our prayers!

If anyone can spare any money to help, there are people (via sites like go fund me and other fundraising sites) and Red Cross taking donations to help with food, shelter, and restoration in Texas. Since I am unable to work, I have very limited to give myself, but I managed to give a little bit. Remember, every dollar counts, so if that is all you can contribute, then that is helpful to the cause! If you cannot spare even a dollar, then please keep praying for everyone affected! Thank you for taking time to read this, and for everyone who is praying for everyone in Texas and their family and friends all over!

Trust in God also opens the door to live a less-stressed and more peaceful life because when you trust God, you are believing that everything will work out in your best interest no matter how bad the situation may currently appear to be. When you are at peace, you are happier in every area of your life including your work life and you will be healthier too. Stress causes a ton of sickness and pain in your body, but as soon as you release the causes of stress into God’s hands, you will experience peace and good health. Not to say that you will not experience problems, just that when you give your problems, situation, worries, and fears and doubts to God and trust him to take care of you and work things out for you in your favor, you can breathe easier and feel at peace and be happy.

In Isaiah 26:3-4, it says, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you. Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal rock.Psalm 37:3 states, “Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.” In Psalm 91:14 is the promise, “The Lord says, ‘I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.‘” We find out in Hebrews 6:18 that God is incapable of lying so every word written in the bible, which is all God-breathed, is true. Find comfort in knowing that when you put your trust in God, you will be protected and brought through all of your difficult situations to a better place and will be given his perfect peace which is not any kind of peace that the world can offer you. The peace God offers is only available through believing in him and in his son Jesus.

How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD by Alexis Kaye Wright

Link

Dear faithful readers,

Thank you for your continued patience with me. My book is once again available in paperback, except in Canada. I will keep readers posted about that.

https://www.createspace.com/7483987

It is also available via Amazon, but the link will not work on here for some reason.

Go to amazon.com and then add /dp/1975611586 after it.

amazon.com / dp / 1975611586 (without any spaces though).

I put the European links in a previous post. Please let me know if you need them and I will find the links and repost them (for UK, Europe, France, Italy, and Germany).

Remember, to err is human and to forgive is divine (and also a commandment of the Lord, since He has forgiven us and made atonement for our sins when He died on the cross for us). Thank you for your forgiveness, patience, and understanding. God bless!

I am still taking questions about my book/writing if anyone has any questions not already asked and answered by me. I invite you to go to my #goodreads author page to see what 6 questions I answered in addition to the ones I answered on video a couple of weeks ago and posted here. If you cannot find me but want to look at my profile on goodreads, let me know and I will post the link. Just look for the name on my book: Alexis Kaye Wright.

May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you His favor and give you His peace.Numbers 6:24-26.

One final thing: Anyone praying for Texas, and including my friend and her family in your prayers, I thank you! Jesus assures us in Matthew 18 that “If two or more agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there with them.” He hears our prayers and answered 1 of them. My friend had not heard from her mom or fiancé when I and some others began praying for her (since the Hurricane first hit), but yesterday (Sunday) morning she heard from them both. They are safe! But my friend, her family, & everyone else in Texas (and I heard Louisiana now too) need your prayers – and remember people in Texas and Louisiana have family and friends all over who need your prayers too for their friends and family in those states. So let’s continue praying, for everyone affected by the Hurricane in Texas, and for everyone who could be affected by what will be going on in Louisiana over the next few days (possible flooding, and I also heard a Tornado watch has been issued). God hears us and will answer! So let us follow Paul’s advice/God’s command through Paul in Ephesians 6:18 and pray without ceasing!

Update on Paperback_Thanks_Question

Please let me know if you have trouble with the link! Thanks!

Also, please leave your answer to my question in the comments section! Thank you, and again thank you for your patience, my faithful readers! Especially patience for my paperback version of my book!

Also…

I will let you know when it is available to buy again. I discovered when my first 4 books I ordered arrived in the mail yesterday, that my book has no page numbers! I made corrections and just waiting for it to be processed! I do not know how it happened, but it has been corrected, and hopefully I will see that after processing has been finished so I can approve the update and make the paperback available again! God bless and have a good weekend!

Prayers for Texas please! My friend lives in #Rockport and she and her kids are safe in San Antonio, and other family in Tx of hers are safe, but 2 have not been able to make contact with them so please pray they are safe and that everyone in #Rockport and all of Texas (I heard the  Hurricane, now at Category 4, is moving on to Houston soon) have safe places to stay now and have a safe place to return to after, or safe place to keep staying until they have a home of their own to go to, provided by God (and that God provide what the Hurricane has taken away). May God honor His Zechariah 9:12 promise (to give back twice the blessings for each trouble/problem)! Amen!

 

Updates Complete!

 

Hello my faithful readers,

The updates to my new paperback edition of my book are complete and available for sale in the USA, UK, Europe (with the Euro I think), France, Italy, and Germany  – all via Amazon. For USA it is also available via Create Space. Link for Create Space below:

https://www.createspace.com/7483987

For some reason the Amazon one is displaying the info for my Kindle Version… But it is up there. After the whole “Amazon.com” add dp/1975611586 to get my book via Amazon.

For Canada, I will let you know when my book will be available in paperback there.

Aside from Australia (already have a request), are there any other countries (i.e. Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, etc.) where I have readers (you, possibly) that want my book available in paperback? Please let me know in comments! I want to get my book to anyone who wants to read it and with God’s help, hopefully I can make it happen – for Jesus said in Matthew 19:26 that “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” And God promises in Isaiah 55:11 that His word (which He spoke through me since the Holy Spirit helped me write the book) will not return void but will produce fruit. So many of you made this book possible to begin with, so it would only be right that you be able to read it no matter what country you are in. For Japan, I do believe it is available for Kindle, or whatever the Japanese equivalent might be. And it definitely is for Australia (available for Kindle).

Thank you all for your patience as I got things figured out, and for continued patience as I get it figured out how to make my book available worldwide! God bless!

 

Another Book Update (Sorry for any Inconvenience)

Dear readers,

For those of you who either purchased my book on Kindle or are reading it on Kindle Unlimited or through KOLL, please go to “Manage Your Content and Devices” on Amazon and under Devices scroll down to “Your Book Updates” and check and see if “automatic updates” is turned ON. If not, please turn it on to receive an update I did around 5-5:30AM this morning that I believe has been posted to Amazon. That way you will have the latest version of my book.

For anyone wanting my paperback version, you will need to wait until my review on create space has been finalized and then proofed by me and approved to upload onto the 2-3 site addresses I gave yesterday for createspace and Amazon.

Sorry for any inconvenience! To err is human, to forgive is Divine. So please forgive me, as I am a first-time author and have limited funds so I had no one to help me with the editing of my book. But I made sure I looked more closely this time and I definitely got the 2 remaining spelling errors, and a possible place of confusion (since it was for me when I read it this morning) corrected too. If you have any questions about this, please let me know! Thank you for being patient and understanding! God bless!
