By His Word
John 16: 15

Whatsoever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy; meditate on these things.

Let's think on those things that are good for us, thoughts that edify us. Think on things that bring joy into our heart and bring happiness. We shouldn't think on the thoughts that make us sad and depressed, but thoughts that build us up. Keeping our thoughts on the positive with the thoughts of God which helps us walk each day with a better attitude. Some thoughts can sometime be overpowering if they are negative. That's why God tells us in the above verse to keep our thoughts pure, think of what is good in our lives and what God has done for us. Sometimes we have to sit down with a notebook and write down all the things that God has done for us, in order to see how blessed we are. Keeping our thoughts on Him and on the positive makes us feel happier and more content. It has been proven that good thoughts create new neurons in our brain, creating new pathways and new branches of good healthy cells. When we create good thoughts and set our mind on God; we remove the dark matter that the brain creates when our thoughts are set on the negative things. God has a reason for everything that He asks us to do. It's to build us up, to make us stronger and to come into our abundant life. He wants what's best for us, and thinking on good positive Godly thoughts and happy thoughts helps us grow and become healthy. So keep your mind on good things and you'll see how much you will grow, not only with God but with yourself. Try it for a twenty one days and see what happens. Stop the negative thinking and allow new happy, joyful thoughts in your mind and you will see things differently. Don't be anxiety of the about what's going on in the world. Our positive thoughts help us to cope with difficulties and problems that arise in all situations. God didn't leave us powerless, he gave us way to deal with life, to see life through his eyes as we grow stronger in the word and in prayer. He will always show us what to do through the Holy Spirit. Lets keep growing new neurons as we change our negative thing into faithful positive thinking. Trust God to guide you though all things! Much Love!

A Newletter for Women & Those Who Love Them
You Are Loved!

Yes, you are loved deeply... Deeper then the sea within the earth and deeper then space itself.
I know that at times some feel unloved and unwanted... But that isn't true!
You are loved for who you are and what you've become. You are loved beyond your wildest dreams and deeper than you can imaging. For God's love is beyond our understanding and deeper then we can ponder. There were times when I went through my memories and I  felt ashamed, unloved and unwanted. So I didn't treat myself nicely. It took time to realize how much God really loved me. Thank God that I finally know how much He loves me.
If your feeling ashamed, unloved and unwanted just realize that God love you!

Look in the mirror and tell yourself with a strong voice... God Loves Me! God Loves Me! Say it until you believe it everyday, even if it takes weeks and months. Pray for a revelation of His unfailing love for you.

Realize that God has seen us through so many things that most people can't even imagine. Realize that He saved you right on time... at the moment you thought you were forever lost. There are times I feel the blues and all I have to do is remember what He has done for me and how far I've come. That, alone brings back joy into my heart and I feel so grateful and thankful. Because without Him I would certainly not be here. I know some people say that, but many people haven't gone through what we have gone through as survivors. He is awesome, wonderful and mighty.

So be strong and believe that God loves you, know that He loves you! Because when all fails God is always faithful even when we're not. Thank Him for all that He's done and all that He is doing and all that He will do in your life. God is our rock and our fortress and in Him we must trust. Even when things seem bad there never as bad as you see it. God is always here with us, He walks with us even when we don't feel Him. He keeps us strong when we ask, and He helps us through everything when we ask. So stand strong within His arms and remember that He Love YOU! Trust Him at all times, stand on His word and don't let go. Just stand and believe His word, because He's not a man that He should lie. HE LOVES YOU, FOREVER!!!

I know how difficult it is for some of you, but God knows our hearts and sees the pain that surrounds you. He will never let you go even when you think you are losing the battle. But you can do it! I know you can! I've been where you are as a survivor and I know that no matter how it looks, you will come out of it! You are walking towards your victory even if you're standing in the dark at the moment. Your victory is close don't give up on yourselves! Each day is a closer day to the freedom of your past, to the renewal of your heart and soul. You've made it this fare and there is no turning back now, you must keep going to your destiny of freedom and healing. Even you you feel that you are alone, you are not, God will always be there with you as you keep the faith no matter how little faith you think you have. You will make it through, I know you will so don't give up on yourself. Much Love!

Everyone is talking about the last days, that the rapture is near. The word says in Matthew 24:36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the son, but the Father only. The signs are all around us and some people are in fear.

Are you afraid of what's going on in the world? Or do you feel safe and trust God?

Please share your thoughts on this subject. I will post them on the next m

My Thought on This and That!
There is no need to fear but I must admit that sometimes as I hear the news there is a bit of fear that tries to overtake me. The world seems to be getting darker with time, but as believers we have to remember that we are under the wings of the almighty. I know that its hard at times to get your mind off of the negative and all that is going on in the world. But we serve a mighty God that even when there's an inkling of fear in our hearts we have to remember the promises of God.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
(1 Corinthians 16:13) God knows that fear comes upon us, yet as the verse says. We have to be on guard and aware of what's going on and use wisdom, allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us in these time. Always standing firm in our faith believing that God will keep us and protect us. We have to be courageous and brave no matter what's going on. Because if we're filled with fear we can't think, we can't function or rationalize our situations our surroundings, We need to find ways to cope and be productive being sharp when we need to be. God wants us to stand strong in all situations and be steadfast in faith, believing that he will show us a way out, a way to safety if need be. We can't allow fear to overpower us and paralyze us when we know that God is with us if we trust him and hold fast to our faith. When fear creeps is I always say... When I am afraid I will but my trust in thee. Let be bold and with faith believing in our heart that God will take care of us under any circumstance

The Desert

There are times in our lives when we walk through a desert where we feel alone and in deep despair. The desert is a painful place to be in, and our hearts become sadden and our hope seems far beyond our reach. These are the hardest times in our lives and in our Christian walk with God. We lose sight of who we are in him and where we stand. We feel forsaken and disregarded, wondering where or when it will end. The pain that overtakes us is deep and filled with negativity not felt before. We struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel; wondering when will it end, wondering how much longer must we be in this desert which only brings sadness and pain.
As I, walked through my own desert years ago, I was lost and in pain not knowing when it would pass. I spend the weeks in the hospital trying to sort my life and wondering if I would find my place. As I stood in the hospital I couldn't help but to take my eyes off of me as I observed others. The pain I saw and felt from others was deep and filled with anguish, the sad part was that most of those women also believed in God and Christ as their savor. The illnesses that they lived with were deep and life challenging. Their hearts were broken and their minds shattered not knowing why. As I looked and listened to their stories I could no longer keep my eyes on my self and go on with my self-centeredness. The pain that ran through those women was heart-breaking and I felt every bit of their pain. As an empathic person I could no longer bear their pain and I wondered within myself and asked God if he felt what I felt? The answer was yes. His heart goes out to those who are in pain and to those who don't know the why of it all. His mercy is great and his heart is filled with much compassion and love for those who suffer deeply.
We may not understand it all or know the reasons why for such pain and the mental illness in others, but I assure you that it isn't God's fault. He's not standing their planting illness on people or brewing up catastrophes to hurt the lives of his children. We must remember that when sin came into the world it corrupted everything, from our atoms to our gene structure. Sin is a deep destructive force that has made its way into our lives through one man. We can't blame God for things we don't fully know of or understand; God is the one with the whole picture, we only have a part of it.
This is where our faith comes in, where we... even in the desert we have to hold onto faith, believing that God will bring us through. Believing that even when it hurts so deeply, and when we don't know what to do or where we're going... that God will guide us to where we have to be. That he will see us through no matter what we are feeling, or what the situation looks like. Faith isn't an easy task and it takes a will to want to believe no matter what the circumstances are. It's a choice of mind and will, it's believing and even wanting to believe that sees us through. God takes what little faith we have and works with it; allowing it to grow as we go on trusting and believing even when all seems hopeless in the moment.
The desert is a place where we grow and learn to hold onto God. A place where our faith is built and our awareness of self becomes stronger, as well as learning who we are in Christ. As I allowed myself to stand back and see others, my heart was deeply sadden for them. I could no longer look at myself but instead I looked to those who needed the comfort of God. I was once again filled with the vision of the house of restoration for hurting women. They became my spiritual daughters within my heart and I prayed for them and with them. I asked God to show me which way to go, and how to begin the posses of establishing what he has called me to do.
Sometimes we have to take our eyes of ourselves and look at others and the lives that need God's love. We have to look towards God and allow him to guide us through. There is always a reason for everything and even when we don't understand what's going on, God is in control and sees the whole picture. Have faith... baby steps, and believe that he will show you the way and guide you to where you need to be, no matter what's taking place in your life at the moment.
As for me right now, I have to trust in God and allow him to guide me and to help me focus in the present and towards the future. Though my life has been filled with much pain and my heart has been wounded deeply, I to must always remember that God is my only hope and my only way, even when there seems to be no way, I will keep my faith and allow it to grow day by day. So trust God, keep the faith and keep your eyes on him. You are a fighter and you've overcome the actual abuse and you will overcome the memories, the flashbacks and the pain that's within your heart. Only God could free us from such a painful past to the point where even the thoughts won't hurt. I have overcome my past, thank God! I am free from the memories, the struggle and the pain that I thought would take my life. Now its your turn to stand strong and hold on to God, to your faith and believe that you to will be victorious soon. You're here for a reason and that is why you are still alive, you have a destiny and a calling in your life. Don't Give Up! Keep the faith. Much Love!
