The night was silent. A shroud draped the garden like the weight of a heavy blanket. Slivers of moonlight peered through the trees and washed over the man kneeling. The heart inside His chest thumped like a drum, overcome with wrenching emotion. Drops of blood slowly trickled down His face as He looked up to […]
As Christians we know that His work in us is the above title. And He will complete this work according to His will not ours. As things in this world get worse we have faith that He is in charge. The ruler of this world is satan and his demons. He is a ravenous wolf seeking who he can devour (take to hell eternally). At this time we see the the birth pangs (unrest in the world, war rumors, pestilence, disease and know this truth. He told this to His apostles before His Crucifixion and Resurrection. He tells us in advance in (Matthew 24). That these things would happen but, that it is not yet the end. This truth is passed down to us in the written Word. This is the Good News.
I can testify of His saving grace. It has nothing to do with what I do in this life. By Him alone we are set free from the gates of hell. I knew when I was a teenager I did nothing but break the commandments and I was doomed to hell.. No one except Jesus Christ lived a perfect sinless life for us. By His shed blood we are cleansed (shown sinless before God our Father). Kept by the Holy Spirit living within us.
So think today look around, let your eyes see what has been created for us. Let your very heart and soul repent and belong to Him. The other choice will not end well. You will find yourself separated from God eternally and in forever torment. May God call you home today. God Bless!
Millions of people, mostly young students, from across 185 countries took to the streets of towns and cities around the world Friday, united across time zones and cultures to participate in the largest climate protest in history to demand urgent action from governments and every sector of society to save our planet.
A litle bit more than one year ago she was alone. Empowered by the World Economic Forum, the United Nation and the Pope, she has now a global army at hands.
Accompanying the young protesters were adults supporting their pressing call: trade unions representing hundreds of millions of people, employees of all kinds including from firms such as Amazon, Google and Facebook, doctors, nurses and public workers marching alongside the students.
First some more pictures of the message from this new global force:
We have seen these kind of ideology in Berlin before. In 1933.

Not on my time but, on the Lord’s. I spent all day with my other brother. We talked the whole five hour drive to Cleveland. We are moving my sister back to Michigan. Our very small family will be back together. So very needed for our 86 year old mother who needs to be saved. The catholic church has her. Born and raised a catholic says she will die one. Works salvation. Has religiously gone to mass gave her money, prays to the dead catholic saints (necromancy) . Jesus needs us to pray to Mary cause He needs her help to rule. (A big lie) One mediator between God and man, Jesus Christ The King. We don’t need the pope (the vicar of Christ on earth). All deceiving and hypocrisy. Leading the followers on the wide road to destruction.
My bro, my bro, I have said it many times since August. So it not out of sight, out of mind, Amen! I will think of him as I study. I will think of him in church, at the beach, always. I will think of him as he would be sad to see his twin hating his sister and his own family. It got so bad I had to walk away. I had to move out on my own, to get away from his disgust of me. I am weak. The Lord is strong.
We took our girl vacation this week to Myrtle Beach. It has been very nice, except for too much yapping from time to time in the car. My aunt and I have a pretty short toleration for my mom. She can’t change, only by the grace of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is that possible…

It’s hard to believe I have been back living in the U.S. for 8 years November 10. We can never see what is in store for us as children of God (even before we are saved) now and in the future. All I know is He guides me even when I am lazy (a lot these last few months). I am pretty much retired at 62. I still work about 30 hours a month. I keep focused on Him daily but, I know I am lacking. I broke my ankle a month ago. All this past year I have been making excuses to not go to church. Yes I got called in some Sundays. Mostly it is my sleeping clock. It is totally off. I don’t wake up til 1:00 P.M. after going to sleep at 5:00 A.M. What can I do? Sometimes I take two Tylenol pm. If that doesn’t do it two more, and and then some zzz stuff and I am still awake. I listened to the book of Revelation last night, yup the whole book. We will see what tonight brings. Since Obamacare you can’t get benzos (temazapam). It worked the best. I remember telling my doctor I have to sleep and can’t not sleep (racing mind, bipolarity). So he gave me that.
I am going on a trip to Lebanon in September. I am looking forward to it. I will see my daughter and my husband. I have not been back since 2016 when he was so sick. I praise God he made it. God did it. He saved him and my daughter also through all of these trials of our life so far. I am taking a friend with me. I hope she gets better before we go. She is seventy-eight, says it’s her last hurrah. She has M.S. and this past year things are declining. I am willing but, she has to get stronger. Her knee gives out (getting a brace). Plus she may have to keep a catheter. We can’t have her sick while she is gone three weeks with me. I have all the handicap services ordered. I am mostly worried about her coming back alone. I am staying a month longer. So pray for her (not saved yet) that all will be well.
I am just so awed by God’s awesomeness. He is our rock and salvation. I was supposed to take this trip in May but all kinds of chaos cancelled the whole shebang. We had driven to Cleveland with my animals. Got to the airport an hour before the flight and they said no we could not get our bags to the plane (45 mins needed) on time. I would have put up a big stink had I known I was on standby for every flight thereafter (never said one word we were standby). I found out after waiting til 12 P.M. that there was no room. I could have taken another flight or rented a car. My connecting flight was at 7 P.M. from JFK. I was surprising my daughter on Mother’s Day. We were flying back with her to Lebanon on the same flights. So some things just don’t mesh and prices skyrocketed (after I bought my tickets in March). On well what can you do (american airlines never again) they don’t even answer complaints, no compassion, forget any response at all. One thousand dollars more for September, instead of four thousand and I could not reschedule the other flight hoping I would make it the next day. Don’t buy super-savers ever. It all adds up to economy coach anyway. Just a funny, our bags went to New York without us on the 12 P.M. flight. So I paid for that and they delivered them a day later, yahoo. I enjoyed writing this. I went through weeks of depression when it happened. Looking back He got us through. Okay Lord, I am praying this time all goes well. I am counting on you to get us away or not. Giving praise anyway you know what you are doing.
And we know all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Still life here goes on. Many blessings since the onset of my bipolar 1 illness. In 2010, I left Lebanon very ill. I left my daughter behind at fourteen and my husband of sixteen years. You see, I was very ill and they did not know how to help me. It was even more exasperated by, my doctor and a pharmacist, not being attentive enough on the drug doses. I was getting invega cut in half. It is not a pill that is scored so I was getting all the time release medication at once. This was extremely a bad time. Just a brief summary of how I was mismanaged. I also got toxic on lithium from weight loss.
I came back to the USA, a totally and completely broken person. Nothing else to do but die. In that despair, I cried Lord please help me. I believe fully in predestination. It was not of me or anything I could ever do. It was God knowing the time for me to be born again, saved. This life began again but, I was a child of God now. All the things from the past were no longer who I was. A way was needed to bring me to a glorifying Him, way to live. I met people at a center for mental illness and physical disabilities. I stayed going for several months. I overheard employees talking about Christians, “Why do they always have to talk about God?” If some one asks you anything about God, you will share the message of Jesus Christ Our Savior, God and Holy Spirit. Needless to say I left. I got a job in a residential care home, screwed that up and was quite devastated again. My dad had died in 2012 of pancreatic cancer right before that. I also became a Hospice volunteer during that time. I was working at Penney’s next, and my brother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and went to the Lord August of 2014. I lived with him until then. What faith he had. What wonderful direction he gave me in the truth, that Christ died for the elect. Not everyone saying Lord, Lord or saying a prayer is a born again Christian. If you are a Christian you show the light of Christ in you. You preach the Word, His word. You live a life that honors Him.
To the point of all this is to say. I made it through but, thank you Lord for carrying me, loving me, giving me a new life in you. Looking back I would never believe what was in store for my destructed family. After years of complete anger and disgust, and hateful words from them, slowly we came closer. My daughter has come to see me twice in the USA. She is a sophomore in college, doing very well. She is involved in many things and I know with the Lord, she will do His work. I also have continued in the home health care field and in volunteering.
In this past July, my ex-husband by divorce only, became very ill. I never wanted to divorce him but, pressure from family you know, money, inheritance, duh. Anyway he has PKD, poly cystic kidney disease. He had diverticulitis that needed surgery and a colostomy. He made it through and was back in the hospital with infection that would not stop. All this time many prayers were being said for him. Finally, I had to go there. They could not stop the infection that spread to his one kidney. He also has been on dialysis for six years. I got a lot of time to witness to him. He could have a died. I told him that he needed to trust God in everything. Later I told him to trust and give thanks in everything. He had made it through. They had to remove one of his kidneys because the infection had spread there. I stayed two months and came back.
This past two weeks, he has been back in the hospital with infection from the reversal of the colostomy. Another fifteen days finally beat that with a drain tube. The doctor may have poked his celiac nerve. He could not walk without extreme pain. Prayers, and more prayers. He did not have a permanent injury. Oh, and I forgot, his dad got in a car wreck while he was in there. He fractured his leg and totaled his car. They were in the same hospital room. No more driving for him at eighty-two.
So where is God? He is there whenever you call His name. Does he answer your prayers all at once? No way, maybe not all or the way you want. For me, all was answered for my family to be restored. It took six years. Whatever happens I trust. Whatever comes we persevere. When we die, it is absent from here and present with the Lord. Amen, Lord come for us.
It is not by us they come to know the truth. That will never stop us from sharing the truth. How many times do we hear the Bible was written by men? How many times do we hear, it is just a fairy tale? We can’t count. We are sad that many will never know the truth. He knows who are His and who are not. We know many in our families are in religious cults,
Who can break that person from it, Only God. Keep praying and witnessing of the truth, no matter.
How many times do we hear I am a good person? Too many.
10As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
13Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
14Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
15Their feet are swift to shed blood:
16Destruction and misery are in their ways:
17And the way of peace have they not known:
18There is no fear of God before their eyes.
All true Christians are praying you will come to know the only Savior Jesus Christ, The truth, the way the life. In no other is there salvation.
Acts 4:10 – 4:13
10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, [even] by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
