If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed. 1 Timothy 4 : 6

When we follow God’s commands on a daily basis, you could say we are digesting His words and our bodies, minds and souls will be well nourished by them.

Spiritual Healing Is Of Value

Heal

When I was diagnosed with Lupus and later Vasculitis I experienced much fatigue and excruciating pain, this would consume my thinking. I couldn’t find anything to help and no medication seemed to soothe. Finally, prednisone would bring some relief, but by this time I had also been worn down emotionally.

Some time passed, I had started back to church as a suggestion from a family member, looking for physical healing (a bit selfish on my part,) but nothing was forth coming and I became very disappointed and even more depressed. So, this is when I started reading the bible in earnest, putting God to the test. I simply decided I would follow His commands, and see if what I was reading was true.

I turned my focus off myself and on to God, and even though things didn’t change right away, He gave me enough strength to look at my situation differently.

One thing I have found, is that if we want to be physically and emotionally healed, we first must work on our Spiritual Healing. We must surrender to God, giving Him all our negative emotions, confessing to Him and asking for His forgiveness. These things alone are enough to free our minds and lift our spirits as God is so gracious and willing to forgive us.

As I continue to stay under God’s protection, I am learning when to go forward and when to slow down. Our bodies are also the House of God’s Holy Temple, so I now try to treat my body as such, by the foods I choose to take in.

So, I continue to seek total healing, especially in the physical, as I stay under God’s protection looking to be Spiritually connected to Him and trying to maintain my relationship with Him.

Begin the day with God!

He is your Sun and Day!

He is the radiance of your dawn;

To Him address your day.

Take your first walk with God!

Let Him go forth with thee;

By storm, or sea, or mountain path,

Seek still His company.

Security

These are a few of the books that I read the first thing in the morning and last thing before going to sleep at night. They make for a better rest.

IMG_9995.JPG

After trying many tangible things, I have learned to put my full trust and security in a God that I cannot see. The funny thing is, that the more I do this, the more He helps me to see clearly.

When I’m in pain I cry out to Him. The times when I have been feeling anxious or depress, I try to picture myself as the woman with the issue of blood, reaching out and touching the hem of Jesus’ garment, and in these times His Holy Spirit is a comfort to me. I would love for others to experience this security, but it comes by taking a leap of faith, which I’ve found that many are not willing to take.

Don’t get me wrong, while I may live in a house and have a security alarm, my security in Jesus is of much greater worth, because I know that if I live or if I die, or if I lose everything around me, I still want to remain secure in Him.

On The Cusp Of A New Era

#Christianity, #Evil, #God, #Gospel

Cusp

Landscape with a Rainbow on the River in Spring

 

 

Nations are rising against nation

Famines and earthquakes are killing many

This is the plight of the enemy.

Christians will be hated

Jesus will be rejected by those who once followed,

Chaos, confusion, and terrorism will increase (Lawlessness)

Love is replaced by hate,

All these things are on the cusp of earth ending.

It’s always darkest before the dawn.

Hold fast, stay strong and endure,

We are nearing the cusp of a most beautiful beginning.

Where the darkness will end and Light will reign forever.

Based on Matthew 24 AMP

All Territories Destroyed

Territory

Right from the beginning of time nations have been fighting nations and in many instances taking what is not theirs. A time is coming soon when all territories, or in other words, everything on this earth will be destroyed. There will be much violence and the earth will be robbed of its money and its goods.

All the territories that make up the earth will dry up and fade away. The earth becomes extremely polluted by man who broke laws and now because of this, within all the territories of this earth, most will suffer and die.

Judgement of the Earth

Behold, the Lord [a]lays waste to the earth, devastates it, twists and distorts its face and scatters its inhabitants. 2 And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the maid like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the creditor like the debtor [as God’s impartial judgment of sin comes on all]. 3 The earth will be completely laid waste and utterly pillaged, for the Lord has spoken this word. 4 The earth dries up and crumbles away, the world dries out and crumbles away, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. 5 The earth also is polluted [b]by its inhabitants, because they have transgressed laws, violated statutes, and broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live on it suffer the punishment of their guilt. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned [under the curse of God’s wrath], and few people are left. Isaiah 26: 1 – 6

Elixir Of Life

Elixir

IMG_5868 Peony_edited-1

I have found my Elixir of life, and for me it is nothing magical, but it is rather sweet.  My Elixir, while still developing, started when I sought a relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

I find that when I follow the commands found in the scriptures, there is an inner filling of peace and contentment. It has to be experienced more than explained. God wants for us all to live long and healthy lives and this is more possible when we follow His Guiding Hand.

Children, obey your parents in the Lord [that is, accept their guidance and discipline as His representatives], for this is right [for obedience teaches wisdom and self-discipline]. Honor [esteem, value as precious] your father and your mother [and be respectful to them]—this is the first commandment with a promise— so that it may be well with you, and that you may have a long life on the earth. Ephesians 6: 1 – 3 AMP
