I just got a mean and spiteful comment from someone.

Let me make something crystal clear to you (the jerk who tried posting a rude unkind and probably untrue comment on my previous post), and to anyone like him who does NOT have Jesus in their heart or lives:

I write for Jesus and for those who are interested in hearing the truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Bible and myself the Scripture contained in it. I write for those who have Jesus in their hearts or who want to have Jesus in their hearts and part of their every day life. 

So if you have no interest in hearing or reading about anything having to do with God or Jesus then you have the option to keep scrolling and to the not read my blogs. But I posted a few years back that I will not tolerate unkindness or rudeness or anyone being mean, and I’m not about to change that now. If you aren’t interested in God or Jesus or anything the Bible has to say, don’t read my blogs. And if you do read it and have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. I don’t write to please everyone, I write to please God and to share my experiences in my walk with Jesus, and to teach those who don’t know the truth but want to, and who seek the truth and who need encouragement and to know they’re not alone in their struggles and who need to know no matter what they do, Jesus loves them and forgives them when they confess their sins (1 John 1:9).

To my faithful readers who keep coming back, and to new readers who will come back in the future, I truly am thankful to God for you. May God bless you greatly! 

Haters back off! 

I pray in the name of Jesus for God to open the minds (remove the veils), hearts, eyes (remove the scales), and ears (remove the plugs from them) of those like the person who left me a hateful comment that I immediately deleted, and also do this for him as well. I know your will is for everyone to be saved (2 Peter 3:9), and that nothing is too hard for You (Genesis 18:14). 

I also so pray for peace of mind also land heart and to not be so sensitive to the negative and hurtful things others say to or about me.

I also pray for unity in Christ with all believers, and that all who are not currently with tooling she LORD to open their minds and hearts, believe and accept Your Truth, which is the only real Truth, and turn their lives around and their hearts to follow Jesus and live for Him. Let things like hate, greed, selfishness, and the problems of the world created by these things (like hate crimes and terrorism and murder, and also sickness, disease, pain, and broken relationships and so on and so forth) melt away and let everyone be united in Christ and show themselves and one another the love of Christ and let us all live in peace and harmony together. I offer all prayers in Jesus’ name!

Dear faithful readers,

I did another reading from my book How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD. This time I picked 2 paragraphs from 2 separate pages from my book to make the reading a bit longer. I apologize in advance for how low my voice is in the video. I listened to it and you can hear me, so I hope no one has trouble hearing me as they watch! Everyone had just gone to bed when I did this video reading an hour ago.  2 Scriptures I quote in my reading tonight are from Psalms 103:8 (1st paragraph I read) and Isaiah 26:3 (2nd paragraph I read from).

God is not angry with you! He loves you, unconditionally! And He wants to protect you and give you peace!

Off Topic…

I am relieved that Hurricane Irma is almost gone now, and will continue praying for Florida, Georgia, The Carolinas (North and South), and everyone else affected! I am also continuing prayers for Texas and Louisiana and everyone else affected by Hurricane Harvey.  I will not stop praying until all hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, flooding, and fires are gone and the people affected do not need prayers anymore.

Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope. I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.Zechariah 9:12

Dear Faithful Readers,

I was inspired by someone else to read aloud from my book! I picked a paragraph about God’s and Jesus’ love for everyone! This could be the first of a few more if people actually want more and let me know by viewing this video and either liking or commenting or both! I want the whole world to know God and Jesus exist/are real, love them/everyone, feel encouraged and grow stronger in their faith!!!!!! If you need any of these things then I recommend reading my book, and read it with your Holy Bible or bible.com /Bible app via YouVersion for cellphones, iPads and other Tablets!

Short Reading from How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD

I quoted Jeremiah 31:3 and a couple of other verses about God’s and Jesus’ love! God bless and may His peace be with you!

P.S. Is there anyone who wants to read my book, but cannot afford it right now because money is tight? Money is super tight for me, but I can afford to give 1 person a free eBook version of my book to read on their Kindle if they give me their email address to send it to them as a gift! If you do, 1st person that sends me their email address (I think there is the option to email me here, isn’t there?) in response to this will get the free copy!

P.P.S I am still praying for everyone being affected, or who was, by any hurricanes or natural disasters (including tornadoes and earthquakes), flooding, and/or fires. My faithful readers are included if any live in any states or countries affected by any of these things! I also pray for all of my readers constantly thanking God for you and praying for your well-being, peace, and other stuff you may stand in need of!

More on Bullying

Dear Faithful Readers,

I keep hearing or reading about more people being bullied, and a lot of them are adults being bullied by other adults. I wrote a whole post with friends on the subject and #bullying is never okay under any circumstances.

I just did a video talking about it: https://vimeo.com/233074291

I am considering putting my part of the bullying piece I wrote with some friends in my book and then adding some stuff like Scripture and Jesus’ and God’s view on bullying, since They are also against it.

The prophet Elisha got severely mocked by a group of boys and got eaten by two bears, in 2 Kings 2:23-25.

Jesus endured being mocked and bullied for us on the cross before He died and went up to Heaven, but that does not mean that God or Jesus were okay with it.

In Galatians 5:19-20, where the list of following your sinful nature’s desires is mentioned it talks about hostility and dissention, and I would think bullying falls under 1 or both categories and the apostle Paul warns us that such people will not inherit the Kingdom of God. He also warns us in Ephesians 5:4 to stay away from “obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes” and a little before that in Ephesians 4:29-32 about not using foul or abusive language and getting rid of all harsh words and evil behavior and instead being forgiving and tenderhearted and using words to encourage and build other people up.

The term “bullying” may not be found in these Scriptures (though mocking is similar to bullying, the way the boys were doing it in 2 Kings 2), but it is covered within the text that is used, if you dig deeper and fully understand the whole context of what Paul is saying.

When you bully someone, you make the person feel small and worthless, and kids/teens and even adults have taken their lives because they couldn’t take the bullying or how it made them feel and they felt like it was the only way out. Others have come close to suicide and/or suffered major mental breakdowns because of bullies. Bullies: you need to understand that your words and actions do affect others, and you know that’s your intent. But do you realize how deeply and badly you affect your victims? It needs to stop!

To anyone reading this who has ever suffered from bullying: You are not alone! I have been there, and even in present time there are days where adults who ought to know better bully me anyway. Know also that #Jesus is with you and that He loves you unconditionally! He sees you as fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14 NIV) and as God the Father’s masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10 NLT). There is hope, when it is anchored to Jesus.

I want to do something to help end bullying but since I am unable to work and book sales are not going well, I am very limited in what I can do. But if there is ever anything I can do then let me know, please! I want to help!

Off topic: I am continuing to #pray for everyone in Texas, Louisiana, everywhere else affected by Hurricane Harvey and for people experiencing Hurricane Irma and the other Hurricanes that have formed, and Florida, Georgia, and everywhere else expected to be hit by one or more of these hurricanes! Please continue to pray with me for everyone! And let us also pray for one another where the bullying is concerned. Let us pray for the bullying to stop, for God to deal with them and let us pray for the bullies to turn to God and give up their evil ways and be saved and live for Jesus! God bless to you all!

 

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!

Ask and You Shall Receive! (Update)

Jesus promises us in Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and you shall receive.” I am paraphrasing, but is essentially what He is promising us.

People have been asking me (especially those I tell about my book in person/via word of mouth) if my book is available in paperback, and looked disappointed when I said no. Well last night (Friday night) I worked long and hard to get a paperback version going via createspace. I woke up this afternoon (Saturday) to an email from them telling me I had been approved and just needed to proof everything to make sure I am happy with the way they put my book together. I proofread it thoroughly and was satisfied so I approved it. Now it’s for sale on the createspace website here:

https://www.createspace.com/7483987

Or available via Amazon here:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/197561158

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1975611586/

For Canada and the rest of the European countries on Amazon (like France and Italy), it is not yet available but I will keep anyone interested posted.

Thank you again, my faithful readers, for getting me to where I am today (published first via Kindle Direct Publish in eBook, and now in paperback via createspace.com). It was God first and foremost who helped, but it was also you, my faithful readers who have read what I have been posting about (usually advice with Scripture backup) since I first started writing on here 4 summers ago!  God bless to all of you, whether you’ve been with me from the beginning, a year, a week, or a day!

I was so excited I purchased 4 copies! Problem is, I could barely afford those 4 and so I have no idea who I will end up sending them to in my family or circle of friends! But oh well, surely God will let me know who each book will go to and will let me know in His time. I am sure they will be people that want to read it, and possibly need to. That is all I can ask… that my book continues to reach people who want/need to know the Truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and Scripture and/or who need hope and anchor for their faith for difficult times. I want what God wants: for everyone to be saved! (2 Peter 3:9) And God promises in Isaiah 55:11 that His word bears fruit wherever He sends it. God’s Holy Spirit helped me write the book, so God was speaking through me in my writing. Since that is the case, surely God will send His own Word out where it needs to go, and it will bear fruit (the right people will find my book and read it with their Bible, or access to Scripture online or via a Bible app). I have the link to bible.com in my book, so for the eBook version, readers can just click on it. For the paperback, they can just enter the web site address into their browser to read Scripture as they read my book. Or for those who have Bibles, hopefully they read them both (my book + Holy Bible) together!
