Transparency

As Christians we sometimes give people the wrong ideal we sometimes try to pretend that we are perfect but we need to be real and let others know that we have serious flaws instead of trying to hide, others are going through so much and our testimony could help them to hold on and cry out to Jesus for help and salvation. Before I got saved I remember buying a gun I don’t know why but I started to kill myself but I kept thinking what will happen to my children if they find me, because as a young woman with 2 children life became overwhelming to me But God kept me and he’s still keeping me through my daily trials and tribulations. God is so good and he loves us so very much we can’t even imagine the great love God has for us so no matter what you’re going through do not give up because God sees you and he cares about you just where you are right now.

Psalm 33:13 ESV

The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man;

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Psalm 147:5 ESV

Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.

Jeremiah 23:24 ESV

Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.

Isaiah 41:10 ESV

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

God is willing to help us because he loves us Hallelujah

Psalm 139:13-16 ESV

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Be Still

Usually we only quote and share Jeremiah 29:11 but I want to call your attention to Jeremiah 29:1~10 God is encouraging his people to settle down let your sons and daughters get married build your homes plant your gardens work for the peace and prosperity of the city,  In other words get comfortable for  you will be here for awhile! In the midst of our hard places we want out as soon as possible but God’s timing is so different from ours. God also told them to pray and so should we  while waiting on God’s time to be fulfilled, it’s so hard to be still while waiting on God we feel we must be doing something but most of the time what we do is make a mess!

We also feel like God has forgotten us but that is never going to happen He loves us to much! For then comes the reassuring promise of Jeremiah 29:11

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes His plans for us are greater than what we’re going through right now so be still and let God do what He has planned the end results will be wonderful.

Update on Pain

I am so thankful to all of my friends and followers,I thank God for you and all of your prayers. I can hardly wait,I went in Friday getting all of the paper work done and all  of my questions answered. My knee surgery is scheduled for the 22nd,and I am so ready! Vickie assured me that the pain I’m going through now will be over,please continue praying that it will be. It’s been pretty rough at times but God is always here with me sending you with encouragement just when I need it. I love and appreciate each and everyone of you! I hope your day is filled with peace and joy! The surgery is minor I’m told by my doctor’s and this describes it.

Arthroscopy is done through small incisions. During the procedure, your orthopaedic surgeon inserts the arthroscope (a small camera instrument about the size of a pencil) into your knee joint. The arthroscope sends the image to a television monitor. On the monitor, your surgeon can see the structures of the knee in great detail.

Your surgeon can use arthroscopy to feel, repair or remove damaged tissue. To do this, small surgical instruments are inserted through other incisions around your knee.
