Troubled Heart???


(John 14:27b) Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Wow, have you seen how the economy has spiraled out of control? How about the banking system, or the housing market? There is a whole plethora of things that are going south. How about the upcoming election. He said, she said, what a mess. And the mess in some of the churches today. Crazy. We can get so spun around it's dizzying. Can someone please tell me which way is north? So I can get the true bearings?




President Roosevelt once in his inaugural speech,"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." It seems in these days and times there is a whole lot of fear going around. At times we can feel like Peter. We are out of the boat. We are supposed to have our eyes on Jesus, but alas the things of this life rise up to steal our attention. The wind and the waves and the depths begin to call to us. We turn to look at these things that we feel are important. These situations are fleeting at best. Thinking "we" can fix this, only to become frustrated. This can only destroy our joy and peace.



You see the word gives us our bearings for truth. Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. We can look unto Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith. Yes, I can hear some of you. You do need to get up and begin walking out what you know is the truth. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Jesus has called us to three things. 1. Believe His word. 2. Trust He will do what he says He will do. 3. By faith we walk it out.
Jesus said I will be with you forever even till the end of the world. Believe it, Trust it and by Faith walk it out. We need not look at these temporal things because soon enough they will be gone and it will be only you and Jesus. Rejoice, we have overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony.


I looked at my compass and seen the needle point to what I thought was true north, but................................ this is magnectic north not true north.

Jesus is our compass and He will point us to true north.
He shall lead us to our true home. These times are a time to rejoice because we shall see the power, glory and love of God in our lives. Glory to the lamb of God!

Luke 12:30For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

32Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

33Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

It is well to remember where our real treasure lies in these times. I am certainly glad I learned the truth and in whom I trust. If it weren't for the faith I have in God's promises, I would certainly have a trouble heart. We need to pray for those people who put their faith in their pocketbooks.

Keep writing your encouraging words.

There are times in life when I reason the treatment for fear is to face it head on while trusting in God for guidance in faith.

Tamela what a writing of truth! I am reminded of this scripture when I was reading your writing: "Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God... I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me" Psalm 56:3. Blessings my friend!

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
