  1. Wow that is awesome! Thank you for sharing that. This experiece did make a difference to me. After this happened, I felt truly humbled at how, By always assuming my own way, how many times was I missing out on opportunity to be used by God. having a gracious spouse, was no reason for me to continually allow myself to have all, or make all the choices...I am trying to be more gracious to my husband and have made changes in my life to be more involved in the activities that I normally did not participate in. It is a bit of a sacrifice, but I can see how much he is appreciating this new involvement. After never once watching a baseball game, (because I cannot stand the sound of it and it seem boring0....but this year, with ear plugs, I watched the World Series with my husband and even discussed the game...and did not make phone calls ~text, or even look at magazines....I commited to be involved completely....God never runs out of stuff to teach us...it meant the world to my husband! Amen.
  2. Jeremiah 12:5-6 If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out,how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in a safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan? Your brothers, your own family even they(meaning as well as others) have betrayed you ; they have raised a loud cry against you. Do not trust them, even though they speak well of you. I do believe God confirms that we should truly trust no man but only in the Living God, I believe it is a reminder to depend on the leading of the Holy Spirit to know who is from God and worthy of trust. That even the born again believers are all at different levels of maturity...Share with others who are like spirited only and as led by the Holy Spirit God Bless all the readers today. Love you all.

  3. One of the very underated and under appreciated ways that we hear the voice of God, is actually through troubles and difficulties. I was reading the Bible yesterday morning when I came across this awesome scripture…just another confirmation that God does talk to us, His sons and daughters. “Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers, will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:20 What God is talking about is that when we are children, when we are immature we see the problems and struggles in our life as being of no value, like tacks in the road, so to speak. But as we mature in our spiritual growth, through walking in the Holy Spirit we will soon see that God has given, us opportunity to develop our skills in hearing His voice through these difficult times. When we have these times we will not longer wring our hands in despair but know that “All things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called together for His purpose” We all have these struggles in our life, but as a born again Christian we know that we are to walk in all the difficulties in a way that is pleasing to God. This is what is pleasing to the Father of us. Are we then able to walk through the hard times…with peace in our heart, with the spirit of God filling us and leading us, with a mouth that has good, true and uplifting words, and a mind that thinks good thoughts?. Are we counted as having a humble and forgiving spirit and an attitude of thanksgiving and appreciation to God, and the desire to continually grow our faith in all that God would have us know and believe? It is not the circumstances in the world that determine success, it is the states of our heart mind and soul. In other words are we a new creature in Christ that longs and aspires to stay in the Holy Spirit? The thing that satan likes to control people with is fear…We know that we are to trust God, but often instead of trusting God, we decided to listen to the fear and do something deemed “more dependable” than God. It is our version of the “Sara thing” where God told Sara and Abraham that they would have a child and where Abraham believed and it was accounted to him as righteousness, Sara laughed in disbelief (as she was very very old)….and then she persuaded Abraham to impregnate her handmaiden Hagar, instead. So I struggle with this fear also, let me give you and example. The other day God gave me a dream, it was a prophetic dream and in the dream he was telling me that there was going to be an accident (a wreck) and that it was to be an opportunity for ministry, When I woke up I prayed for the ones that God was telling me would be in a wreck. Then, God told me to tell people, and I knew that He was talking about my friends and family on my computer as well. My friends and family in my email and on facebook, and in my daily life. That was out of my comfort zone. Fear was the first thing to try to keep me from following God. The enemy puts those thoughts in our head “yeah, you will look stupid if you post that, people will that you think you are a prophet or a mind reader and full of yourself”….I instantly said to God, “Oh, I don’t think I’m doing that”…but then I realized that God was not asking me what my opinion was….He told me to do it. So I did it. I thought to myself, I have to be willing to step out in obedience in the fine tuning my “hearing from God”…maybe I won’t always get it right, but if we choose to ignore God and disobey and disregard that things that He is saying to us, why should we even bother saying that we are a Christian? Really. So satan tried to control me by putting the fear on me in hopes that I would “play it safe. I have friends and family who are offended by my faith and even the object of ridicule for my trusting heart. If I did not post I would not risk ridicule. That is true, but I needed to post whether I would get ridiculed or not. As it turned out the dream warned me to pray for whoever was going to be in a wreck…and I did, and posting it gave others opportunity to pray as well. This was my dream. It was more like a vision within a dream really, It was dark and still, then I saw a door, in the dark and it opened I could see beyond the door light, billowing clean light but no form, and then I hear the voice of my husband. He was alarmed, "There's been an accident"...and I instantly knew it was a car wreck, and then a pause and my husband's voice was kindly and knowing, "This will be an opportunity for ministry, Linda"...and I awoke. It was a Thursday early in the dark morning when I awoke from the dream and prayed, and when God told me to share the dream with others. Then I posted it on my facebook page with my friends and family. Later that day I called my close friend that I was suppose to meet for lunch, but she couldn’t talk, she was upset that her daughter had just been in a car wreck. No broken bones but banged up and sore. Then on the next day my sister was in a car wreck that totaled her car…same thing, no serious injuries but or course the car was messed up. I am only sharing this because it is important to recognize this kind of fear as the enemy of God. God had me and othes praying in intercessory prayer for the persons who were to be involved in a car wreck ~before they were even in the car that day,and by the next day, there had been two accidents in our circle of friends and family, and Thank God, that they were not seriously injured, who can say what the outcome may have been without the power of God interceding. Shall we be thankful to God for keeping our loved ones safe? Absolutely. And the family members who are not believers, I pray to God that they will not miss the opportunity to know and love Christ and to recieved the salvation that is available through faith in God's only begotten son. John"3;16 If you stay in the Holy Spirit, you will walk in His way. God will continue to lead you into all truth. God is our source. God is our identity, God will speak to His sons and his daughers. If we aspire to walk in His Holy Spirit He will teach us.
  4. Hi Robertme and Chollette, I found this verse, It was of great comfort to me, after walking through the eight months, God confirmed to be all through the trials that He was with me. We also know that all things work together for good, for those who love the Lord and are called together for His purpose. "Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers, will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:20 The other verse that I am researching was a scripture that God told me to share with my daughter a few months back...right before you get to the promised land there are thickets...tangling, thick and challenging thickets to go through...faith alone is the only way to get through. that is waht God was showing me and my daughter but the scripture says so much more...I will look that one up as well. God Bless.
  5. Chollette, I too was out of work for 8 months, I also was not able to get unemployment as the company fought me. I also, started my new job yesterday. God gave me the scripture that He'd sent me two teachers, and I want to share that with you as well. Wow..talk about God's divine will, as I was reaching for the Bible to type this for you God gave me this scripture to share: you are not to do as we do here today, as everyone sees fit,since you have not yet reached the resting place and the inheritance the Lord your God is giving you, but you will cross the Jordan and settle in the land the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance and He will give you rest from all your enemies around you so that you will live in safety. Deuteronomy 12:8-9 I have two more scriptures on my heart to share. One of those has to do with the thickets that you have to go through to get to and through the Jordan....and the other scripture God shared with me Sunday, about the two teachers that He has sent to us, to assist us in soon hearging God more clearly. Will return after some research, God Bless.
  6. Greetings to all, I just wanted to stop by and let others know that I appreciate your emails, or, pm's, but I am not able to send any of you private messages yet...Since the forum "break in" which by the way I beleive was handled quite well, Thank you God! I got your message Dreamster..."Hi" back at ya. I am excited and happy to be released to visit again, as the project that God has given me is now complete...have a wonderful day!!
  7. Hinds Feet and Chollette, and all the others that I've had an opportunity to know, "Dreamster" obviously, I miss all of you so much here on Mias site...I was led by God to set aside my visits here and to set aside my love of reading to work on the book that God told me to write...the revision is done and I am really happy that I may be at liberty again, to visit here. I have so much missed you all and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I've learned so mucn and God is doing so much in all of our lives. talk soon, love you all, in Christ Jesus!!!
  8. this scripture...in the word of God did the same thing for me. I am being tormented for doing good in Christ Jesus...I am being slandered and robbed -for blessing and caring for the unloved, but God in His goodness has been letting me know that He has myback ...oh yes. He has our back- He is the one on that white horse that comes to save us. Praise the Father of us...that He loves us so. We are favored...do not forget that for a moment. We are loved and adored we are favored and by grace we are grafted in to the Kingdom of God by faith, by Grace....We are children in the Royal family of god....ponder this . really
  9. Isn't that a wonderful word from God...it makes me so happy every time I read it, and yes that is a picture of me..thank you for the compliment. The joy of the Lord is my strength (smile) amen !!! God Bless You
  10. That is a brilliant Idea dreamster...hey....in fact your DAD thought it was great idea too....HE is responsible. (smile)
  11. Cholette... God bless your heart. I thought about that little girl and how precious she is to God. She may do powerful things in the Kingdom of God I do pray. Sometimes I think...I can hardly believe that I have lived so long and still have so much out there to learn. really. Thank you for your input...it made me cry ..I love you all, In Christ...the lover of our soul,
  12. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Freedom...but there is also God's divine will. God has been talking with me lately about being sensitive to stay..............stay, in the annointing and the power of His Holy Spirit. It seems like once we've been born again and baptised in the spirit of God it's not uncommon to one day find ourselves just wandering about with our daily routine...unknowingly distancing ourself from walking in the footsteps of the Holy Spirit that is to lead us into all truth. Instead its llike we just expect the Holy Spirit to "tag along"....maybe you all are not guilty of this, but I was. I don't want it to be like this anymore. I find myself often....just trusting, that the Holy Spirit is with me as I go about doing the things I do (and He is) but there is more-Knowing the Spirit is with you and being led by the Holy Spirit are NOT THE SAME thing. I want to stay in the place where I am led. There is more and I know it. Last weekend I found myself thinking that it has been four months now since my income was taken away from me during an attack from the enemy during the release of "Its A God Thing...MY SHEEP WILL HEAR MY VOICE. A project that God told me to do eight years ago. I had been accustom to tithing by buying engraved Bibles regularly for young men at a Christian based rehab here where I live. But with the loss of a job and the company fighting against my unemployment benefits I was in a different place now.... I found myself with 120.00 from sales of my books and lunch money from my husband... and I thought about giving it all for Bibles...that would buy 4 leather bound personally engraved Bibles...but would leave me totally broke. I'm thinking, a tithe is considered ten percent...I could just give 12.00. I hadn't had any income in three months.....I am not use to being without cash for lunches and an occasional Starbucks. I prayed. I felt bad that I had not been able to help all these months and I ordered the books - and paid the bill. It felt wonderful. I felt in my spirit that God was telling me to stay tight...I dont need to be talking all the time when Im with God, I can feel comfortable in just being with Him (God) but yes STAY with him all day. I gave all my money, and on Friday my husband came home and handed me forty dollars. "Whats this for?" I said. and he told me that someone at his work had heard of my book and wanted to donate to my ministry...and not only that but she was bringing in another donation next week. WOW. I went to Starbucks to meet a lady that was going to be a witness for my hearing...I wanted to buy her a cup of coffee for her trouble in meeting me to write out her statement, so we ordered iced drinks...with my husbands joint check book but when we were informed that they dont take checks anymore, the man behind us happily volunteered to treat us.... That night my husband took me out to a nice dinner at our favorite local restaurant, he'd set aside 22.00 just for that occasion and it was really nice. I have been practicing staying in Gods divine Holy Spirit....and when the waitress asked what booth, she offered the big comfy booth up in the front by the windows or the one in the back by the loud kitchen.... I always pick the window booth...and my husband (almost) always lets me have my way, as he is very gracious soul. This time however...I was practicing walking in the Spirit of God and I was sensitive to the Spirit when I said, "Well, Peter, where would you like to sit?" He picked the uncomfortable booth in the back by the loud kitchen. Half way through dinner the parents of a little girl in the back started shaking their child and I could see the terror on their faces...the babies' face was red and her eyes were rolling into the back of her head...she was still....the parents did not speak English I could not understand what they were saying but I was on my feet and over there in a moment....and took the baby from the father...and turned her around...I started the heimlich on her and it took almost a minute before I could get the childs air pipe clear to breath....the parents were crying. I dont know Spanish but I know exactly what they were saying with their eyes and the way they hugged me. That little girls life was saved that night because God was teaching me something. Abide in me. Wrap yourself in white every day....be with the King...Follow the Spirit, dont try to lead because nothing that Im doing is more important than what God wants me to do. Be disciplined, thats what being a disciple..is about...it is taking practice. but I know God has so much more for His children to do when they aspire to abide. I am learning a lot this week...I hope God is teaching you through my story also.... That night...........I was so happy to be alive and so close with God. He is so wonderful.
  13. That sounds like a prophetic idea..... You are a funny guy Dreamster.!!!
  14. I agree with princessdelia Chollette, (except that you are still ababy girl and I am more than a decade your seniour) nevertheless the rest is all the same...you are faithful to be transparently honest -which opens a window up to others that touches the heart and draws us closer. I can so relate to the ugliness that is thrown at us when we continually regroup every morning to walk, one step and at time in God glorious Spirit....I am in the fire now...and while I am in the fire someone is throwing darts at me. I am holding tight to my Lord and Saviour and trust He WILL take me WHERE HE WANTS ME TO GO......this is just for a season. God Bless and thank you for the encouragement.
  15. [i][i]Zeph 3:16-17 - Fear not -- do not let your hands sink down. The Lord your God is here with you now, the strong warrior who saves you! He will rejoice over you with joy and victory. In His love He will silence all condemning and make no mention your past defeats. Instead, He will dance around you with singing.[/i][/i] Let the YAHVAH be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. Psalm 35:27
