I am humbled. . .

It is amazing the love that Christ has put in my heart and the feelings of urgency to share that love with others. I know that I was not a good example of His love all of the time when I was younger, but I have been HUMBLED! He has shown me what it is to be loved and to love. He is my ROCK and my SALVATION. And laltely my heart has been bleeding for many of the people in my past. I know that it sounds weird, but up until recently, I couldn't remember the names of several people that I went to school with and all of a sudden, the other day, names started flooding my mind. Names that I believe that God has put there for a reason. He has a plan and YOU are part of that plan. If you think I am nuts, then so be it. But, I am going to contact every person that God has put on my heart before I leave this earth. I know that our days are numbered. . but do YOU know that?

I have thought a lot about how I used to be versus how I am today; and I have to say that I am NOT proud of the person I once was. I know that in my youger years, that I was not always the easiest person to be around. Sometimes I could be real bossy OR just absolutely "clueless" to the feelings of others around me. . . and when I was in college, I could be absolutely "stupid" sometimes and some of the things that I did, were not that of a follower of Christ. But then again, as I have said before, I really didn't understand the true meaning of that until 2000. I did not always show respect to others who had a difference of opinion. . . and for that, I am sorry.

I apologize to everyone whose feelings I may have hurt or whom I may have offended.


Now, I don't expect that any "specific" person is going to forgive me. But, I want you to know what is in my heart. If you could see me now, versus then, you would know that Christ has indeed changed me. And that He is giving you that same opportunity. Don't let it slip by without so much as a glance. He Loves YOU!

Life OR Death?

My heart is aching, I have been having trouble getting to sleep. I can’t seem to get enough of God’s Word lately. I feel excited and nervous, happy and sad, relieved and concerned. I know, I know, it seems like I may be on the “verge” of. . . something. God has given me a tender heart. SO many things over the past couple of years have really affected me both mentally and spiritually. For the better, of course; and God never brings you to something without getting you through it. And we have been through a lot; as a person, a family, and a nation.

Last night as I lay in bed thinking about the day and the upcoming week, I could not sleep. I was sobbing. Not really sure as to the specifics of “why”. But, I was feeling strongly about how much love I feel for my family and others around me, and knowing that Christ is coming soon and there are still so many lost. I don’t understand all that I need to about the end times, but the more and more I study it, the more and more sad I become. As a Christian, I am thrilled with the anticipation of “going home” to Jesus. Yet, I am saddened because I know so many people that have not accepted Jesus as their Savior or think that they are “saved”, but continue to live in sin. . . . . .

Some examples of what I am talking about: People who profess to be “Christian” and then proceed to preach “hate”. Like the people that picket funerals of our military men and women; people who scream out “you are going to HELL because you ___________________” (fill in the blank for yourself, since there are a lot of things that could go here). If you continue to live in sin, regardless of what sin you are committing, whether it be fornication, adultery, lying, stealing, cheating, evil thoughts, pornography, hatred, whatever the case may be, you will not be with HIM. In order to stay on the path that God has set forth for you, you must stay in His Word. God sent His Son here to die for us so that we might have everlasting life.

This Sunday, my pastor likened it to a person standing at a fork in the road. There is a person that sees you coming, and lets you know that if you continue on the path that you are going on, you will D-I-E, as the bridge is out and it is a L-O-N-G drop to the river. Then that person says, take this path; and points you in the direction of safety, which is L-I-F-E. Essentially, that is what God has done. He sent his Son here to die for us, so that we could have “EVERLASTING LIFE”.

Life in His kingdom.

Life with Him.

Life with Jesus.

Life with the Holy Spirit.

Which will YOU choose?

You know, back in 2007 Newt Gingrich spoke at the National Press Club and discussed the war on terror. I can't help but wonder, where is this nation going to be when my son grows up? Or will he even get that opportunity?

Take a few minutes and check out what he says in this brief video. If this doesn't concern you, then you have got to be blind!

We Are In The Midst. . .

I can't seem to emphasize this enough to everyone that I know. We ARE in the End times, people. Those of you that are atheists that conversate on some of the blogs that I frequent, I am having a real hard time holding back my tears for you. Everyday, I pray for you and cry. Yes, I said I cry for you! I cry out and pray that your eyes will be opened and that you will see the proof before you. . . before it is too late! America IS the Church of Laodacia. Those that call themselves "Christians" but are NOT living their life as such, will be LEFT BEHIND to endure the 7 years of Tribulation.

God states in Revelation 3:16 "So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth"

Come on folks. Let's get it together. Christ IS coming soon and you NEED to be ready. Time is of the essence, and I beg you to listen. You did not just happen to find this blog for NO REASON! God SENT YOU here! He is giving you ANOTHER chance, another sign. DON'T waste it! Christ DIED for you. WILLINGLY. He didn't have to. He could have ignored it all together and not even bother to give us a chance. But he LOVES US!!

What are you waiting for? How much more proof do you need?

Driving in to work today, I was listening to the radio. I couldn't tell you what was playing or what was said. I simply don't remember. All I could think about was how grateful I am to be able to serve Christ and still have that FREEDOM. I couldn't help but wonder if my son will have the liberty to worship openly, like we do now, when he grows up. Things seem to be going in the wrong direction for this country, OR maybe they are going in the right direction . . . a direction of prophetic fulfillment. Lately, I have found myself reading more and more on the end times and realizing how little time we have left here on earth to bring others to Christ. He doesn’t want any to perish, but many will.

That is why I have decided that from now until I die, I will spend time sharing the Word of God with as many people as I can. Whether it be through this blog, internet, in person, at the grocery store, library, work. . . where ever! That is our job as Christians. I also feel that it is my job to share what I know with others, especially brothers and sisters in Christ. That is why I will have links on this blog to inform you of information that is pertinent to OUR beliefs! I know that some of you have said that you love to see what I will share next, AND a couple of you have mentioned that you felt that I was offensive. , I speak strictly from my beliefs in the infallible Word Of God, The Bible AND from my heart. If you find what I say as offensive, then I am sorry. My intent is to spread the TRUTH!

“TRUTH” is not something that you can “decide for yourself”. It is what it is. Nothing more, nothing less. Lately I have felt it necessary to be more assertive in MY BELIEFS, since I have had the agenda of others crammed down my throat for years. Well, I am through eating my words. I am tired of hearing from our Senators, Congressman, etc. that I (being a Christian) should be more “TOLERANT” and that I should allow my child to be taught things that we (my Christian family) DO NOT agree with as morally correct.

One example:
The San Francisco Chronicle reported: “Eighteen first graders traveled to San Francisco City Hall Friday for the wedding of their teacher and her lesbian partner.” Ok now, this is one of the things I am talking about. It is ok with government for a “public school” to take the kids to something like this, but do you think that they would have taken then to a “traditional wedding”??? NO, that would never happen.

Yet, get this:
In September a boy was suspended from school for wearing “anti – Obama” t-shirt. Now tell me, where is this kid’s right to “free speech”?! His First Amendment right was violated! Why can’t he express his opinion?

ACLU Filed a lawsuit against students for Praying and for holding Christmas concerts in local churches! Yes, it’s true! Check out this article.

So tell me, what do you think? Do you think that we are losing our rights as Christians?

A Day In The Life. . .

Things have been quite crazy lately. I know, so what else is new?! John hass been really sick and was put in the hospital last Wednesday. They released him on Saturday, so I set up an appointment with his primary care Dr. Well, she was NOT happy that they Dr at the hospital released him AND he was NEVER seen by a Pulmonary Specialist. NOT GOOD! So, SHE set up a chest X-Ray with contrast and an appointment with a Pulmonary Specialist for today. It seems like everything that happens to John is always something like that. The same kind of craziness occurred when he went to an orthopedic surgeon for his back. The guy called John a liar and then when he got the results back from the MRI, he found that John was in fact NOT lying and that he DEFINITELY had reason to be in pain. He has 3 herniated discs and degeneration in his back. Any way, that's a whole other story.

So, this morning he has the X-Ray and this afternoon is the appointment with the specialist. So many things could be wrong. . .or right. But, when I found out about all of this last night when I got home, I was reminded of another story that I had read online. It must be why God directed me to it. It was husband writing about his wife and what it was like when they found out she had cancer. She went through treatments and they were able to get through it knowing that either way “she wins”. (If she made it through the chemo & surgery OR if she died.) She ended up living another four years and then, when it was time, she died. You see, they both knew that if she made it, she would have a little more time with her family. But, if she died, then she would be with the Father above and no longer suffering. Either way, she won!

I know that no matter what the Dr has to say today, that God will get us through it and He is in control of EVERYTHING. Funny how things aren’t as difficult to face, when you KNOW that. Now you might be thinking, so what?. . . big deal. . . he has an appt with a specialist. But, what you may not understand is this: The specialist handles serious respiratory issues like COPD, lung cancer, etc. So, the prognosis is likely not a good one. However, God is good and merciful. He will keep us strong through whatever we are to go through. I know this because of the many other things that we have gone through.

1. Shortly after we were married, I became pregnant. I miscarried just before the 2nd trimester.
2. When our son was about 5 months old, he was diagnosed with E-Coli in his kidneys. The Drs were amazed that he was even alive, as sick as he was. (The power of prayer is amazing!) he is now 4 1/2 yrs old!
3. A year after I had my son, I almost died from hemorrhaging when my hemoglobin dropped below 5 and my heart was skipping beats. I had to have 3 D&Cs in the timeframe of 2 years in order to get my “mommy parts” working properly again.

See what I mean? These were not “little” things by any imagination. However, as always God got us through. And these are only a couple of things. We have had something crazy occur at least three or four times a year. But, like Job, we will NOT falter. Jesus Christ is our Savior and HE is the ONLY way to Heaven! He keeps us strong and died for us. SO, no matter what we have to endure here on earth, we know that one day we will be with HIM and all of this isn’t going to matter.

Fireproof - Passion

On the way in to work this morning I was listening to the Radio and I heard the host talking about what a hit at the box office the movie “Fireproof” was over the weekend! Now, keep in mind that this movie was only in 850 theatres and it STILL came out in the TOP 4!!!! What does this tell you?!? What could it mean?!? Is it possible that America wants more “FAMILY” oriented movies? . . . more of the kind of movies where the family actually works things out? Instead of a bunch of movies selling “lust, infidelity, fornication and all round non-traditional family values”??!!?? Wake up HOLLYWOOD! Take a queue from “Fireproof”. Looks to me like there is a NEED out there for this kind of story for the silver screen!

The host of the radio station was also talking about “The Passion of The Christ”, another movie that went over tremendously well at the theatres and even more so on DVD. As a follower of Christ, I found it extremely hard to watch the scene where Jesus was beaten by the soldiers, before his crucifixion. I now have a greater understanding and appreciation for how much Christ suffered for OUR sins! I don’t think that I will ever be able to wrap my mind fully around how truly severe it was; because I just can’t fathom that kind of pain. It is said that most people did not make it through the beatings and that if they did, that they would die within an hour or so on the cross from suffocation. Christ was given 40 lashes. . . 40!!! There is NOONE in this world that could have made it through all of that and not have come out with broken bones. . . and yet, HE DID! And He did it FOR US!
I can’t keep tears from coming to my eyes when I think of how God must have felt seeing His Son go through such horrid treatment. Can YOU imagine? Sit down alone in a quiet room for a minute and imagine how you would feel if it were YOUR child that you had to watch go through this. What? You can’t do it? You are right. . . not if you have an ounce of LOVE for that child. It hurts too much and you simply can’t wrap your mind around it.

If you have never seen this movie or do not believe in Christ, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE. . . take the time to get this movie, sit down and watch it; even if it’s by yourself. I promise you, you will come out of it a changed person. I don’t know of anyone that has seen it that has NOT been affected by it.

Are you an UN- Believer? Do you simply think that Christ is some made up deity that was created in our minds to make us feel better about death? Are you an atheist? I would love to talk to you. I am open to ALL comments, so share your thoughts.
