Keep On Keeping On!

Jesus Christ revealed to the people of his day how to have a relationship with our Heavenly Father.
We are blessed to have those moments; that advice to look back upon through the gospels.

One such example, would be this:


Think of a time when you had a great interest in someone. You sought to know them better. In today's world you might search the internet to see what you could learn about them. With each little tidbit of information, your curiosity and interest grows pushing you to seek to truly get to know them. You step boldly forward and start up a true personal relationship. Day by day, you take the time to invest into your relationship with them. This is a natural process is it not?

With that in mind, it only makes sense that in order to have a personal relationship with God, one must take the time each day to draw near to Him. This is exactly why Jesus point to this truth in the gospels. How can you honestly believe you could ever know God on a person level if you aren't willing to set aside a little time to spend with Him each and every day? I promise you this, you will find no better friend here on earth!

With time, you will discover that God is faithful, He is true. You gain wisdom and understand in a deeper way that we live in a fallen world, but this life is just a blip on the radar. It can at time seem overwhelming and like it is everything especially in the face of death, but I promise that is not the case. We are here but for a moment, but there is a true and very real promise of more days to come. Days without tears and without illness and death; those are the effects of the fall.

God truly loves us so much that He paved a way for us to have more not only after we pass, but in this life as well. You come to learn all this as you come forward seeking, knocking at His door each day.

Today I challenge anyone who has ever had a moment of guilt over something they have said or done in this life. That guilt is acknowledgement that we have sinned. Sin binds us as slaves to the enemy. He uses this guilt in spiritual warfare and the only weapon to completely destroy and wipe away that guilt is to turn to God, admit your guilt, ask for forgiveness and then ask Him to help you walk in His will for your life. I promise you His will is for you to not feel condemned but rather to live an abundant life. The proof is in the Bible!

(John 3:17, NASB): For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


(John 10:10, NASB) "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

You can trust in all that is written about Jesus. You can trust that if you do as He says, we will see things through the spectrum of truth and we will not find ourselves snared in the schemes of the enemy so easily. Despite living in a fallen world, you will have peace and joy come what may and you will truly be able to say, "It is well" through it all!

How can I be so confident? Because I sought, I knocked and I come back each day. I have been witness to countless answered prayers. I have been blessed in the craziest ways. I have seen the glory of God at work. I have heard angels sing. I have heard the audible voice of God. 

I often say that I wish I could download all I know about God right into others for then they too would have an unshakable faith in Him. While I can't do that, I have written many of these accounts into one single book entitled "You Are Worthy Too: The Proof is in the Pudding".

This is one of my most recent reviews: "I read 15 pages of your book sis. Its incredible. Wonderful how God plans in our lives I praise God for u sis. When I read your book sis it has really God’s presence sis God using u in His time

Only God could have written my story the way it is written. It is something when your faith is increased by reading your own book. I know God called me forth to write it to help others be freed to live abundantly. 

If you are like me and prefer to hold a book in your hands, my print version is available for only $9.99 by clicking here and electronically for only $3.99 by clicking here. May you too find yourself in the presence of God as you read it!

Father today I thank you for always being true to who you are. I am so blessed to have sought and to have continued to seek. I pray that my fellow brothers and sisters seek you out each and every day. Your protection and provision is amazing. I pray they discover this truth as well. May eyes, ears and hearts begin to open up to your wisdom all over the world. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
