Faith Walking

walk-by-faith

Life has been crazy and I haven’t sat down to write in awhile. I have been thinking daily about it though. Every time I get an idea to write, I make a mental note but miss that moment when I am most excited about it. So, here I am back at it. The ministry is coming along,https://msinop1.wordpress.com/2015/01/24/marty-sinopoli-ministries/ hoping to have all the paper work finished for the 501 c-3 done by this week, then just the wait. My daughter Gabby who was diagnosed with Perthes disease,https://msinop1.wordpress.com/2014/03/31/another-layer/  just diagnosed with it in her other hip, bummer BUT my God is bigger than any of our earthly circumstances so I am putting it in His hands. My other daughter just turned 12 years old, and she is growing into a beautiful young woman, but nevertheless embarking on the hardest years of a girls life.

My spiritual life is well and God has been showing me and leading me through refining since the store closed. It is a time of testing and truly trusting the Lord alone. It is scary but is yielding good fruit.

Money is always an issue. Although Gino has a good job, we are still spread thin and debt looming over head from our former venture of GiGi’s. I am trusting that the Lord is going to work it out in His time in His way, But, I won’t deny that the furnace is getting hot. Gino is learning to trust my instinct and ability to hear God. Also, I believe it is a call to him and his life as well. I had a thought a few weeks back while getting ready one morning that God had big plans for Gino and that Gino’s faith would grow strong. I am waiting for that deliverance and am excited for that time in our lives of believing together.

I am still counseling with Center of Hope and truly love that role. I have met some amazing clients and have established lasting relationships.

I will continue to Walk in Faith to what God is calling me to do.

New Day

Jesus_Walking_on_Water

It’s a new day today and I am brimming with

Hope and Victory

God has refreshed my soul my spirit with His.

He is teaching me new things, He has stretched my faith portion.

I am diligently looking to Him.

Not focusing on anything that this world is trying to throw at me.

I am standing on God’s truth.

In Him there is no defeat only victory.

There is freedom, like nothing that any of us only dwelling in the natural have ever known.

We have power! Untapped power! Everlasting, overflowing.

We can walk in “LOVE”

Actually IN IT!

We also have authority. Authority over the enemy.

It’s not based on feelings, worthiness, or hierarchy.

It is based on “FAITH”

Matthew 17:20 New International Version
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

John 14:12 New International Version
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

“Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things” —–

THAT’S US!!!

He couldn’t have been more clear.

Try it!

Today, pray for the sick in Jesus name and EXPECT. Today, hand over your hardest problem, your biggest worry and then EXPECT. Not only expect but more importantly believe.

Demonstrate your heavenly inheritance. Give all the praise and glory to the King of Kings.

You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to Gain!

Today is the day! A new day in Christ Jesus! Amen

Thy Will Be Done

The Lord’s Prayer

Thy Will Be Done

Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

When Lord?

Now?

Healed?

Knowledge?

Wisdom?

Unconditional Love?

How do I receive these things Lord?

Matthew 7:7 Ask, Seek, Knock
7″Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8″For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.…

Do I have to activate Lord?

Yes, you need BELIEVE.

That, is how I activate?

BELIEVE

Do not doubt, it is not your power child, it is Mine.

gods-presence

When we step into God’s presence what will we feel? If this is the pinnacle, heaven? How can we even begin to describe it, or hope for it in this life?

The word says we are looking through a dim lens right now ( 1 Corinthians 13:12The Message (MSG)

12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!)

Squinting thru the fog, what DO, WE SEE? How are we catching a glimpse of Him NOW?

The feeling you get the first time you share a kiss. (Excitement)
Watching the sunrise (Awe)
Experiencing something new.(Excitement)
Traveling to a foreign land (Wonder)
Your wedding day. (Hope)
Being held in your mother’s arms. (Unconditional love)
Affirmation from your father. (Proud)
The birth of a child. (Unconditional love)
When a question you have, receives an answer. (Intellect beyond measure)
Intimacy (love)
Sex (Pleasure)
Eating something delicious ( Pleasure)

The list goes on. These are all characteristics of the living God. When we arrive and stand in His presence we will feel ALL of thee above, ALL at once. Can you even imagine?? What is hoped for is beyond comprehension. Our earthly being, our flesh would never be able to receive all that He is. But, one day we will.

Prayer Fail?

Power

It is time that I write a praise report.

 

I wrote  to you and told about the new chapter in our lives. I also talked about my daughter Gabby’s diagnosis of Perthes disease and the dreaded waiting game.

We were back for an appointment after waiting 2 months, and also after reading up thoroughly on the disease itself and what we would be up against. Unfortunately, Gabby had all the risk factors that make her diagnosis worse case scenario. ( Risk factors- 1-Age(best if diagnosed by 6, she’s 8) Weight- (Gabby is short and stocky) Early detection ( 1 year of symptoms before diagnosis for Gab)

These were all scary facts. Even though I was praying and praying for healing and restoration I still had my doubts, like any parent would.

 

The appointment went well at first. The Dr. said according to the new set of x-rays what was left of the femoral head hadn’t deteriorated any further. I was thanking Jesus, thinking it was a good thing. But, the Dr. went on to say that this was A typical for Perthes disease, and that he was now unsure of his origin al diagnosis. He even went as far to say it could be  tumor and that he would like to see her back in 3 month for  a biopsy and contrast MRI. I was stunned to say the least. It actually took me hours to comprehend what he had said.

 

After discussing it with my husband, and conferring with the online support group, we decided to get a second opinion. I called a noted facility in a neighboring town and was able to get a appointment fairly quickly.

 

We went with disc’s of the x-rays in hand and waited with anxiety to see what this Dr. would say about what he saw on the x-rays.

 

He came in and quite confidently said, he did not think it was a tumor, and even better, he did not think she needed surgery either. He said she was in the regrowth process and as long as she did not do

any weight bearing activities ( soccer, basketball) that we just have to allow the body to do it’s thing.

We couldn’t have been happier, and more importantly relieved.

The next answered prayer is something I wrote about last year. https://msinop1.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/a-call-to-prayer/

Months went by and I continued to pray fervently everyday for the owner of the tracker with the bumper sticker that so saddened my heart ” Nothing fails like prayer”. Then the roadwork came into play. The tracker was forced to park in another spot due to the roadwork, and so out of the eye shot of every passerby. I was happy about that, but still broke my heart that someone was so broken and angry to believe that statement.

The roadwork went on for a few months. Out of sight out of mind. Then Bam, I am driving along this street where now the mid 90’s tracker is BACK.

tracker

But, with something noticeably missing. The Bumper Sticker. It’s GONE, the remnants are left of the glue that held it fast to the soft top. The glue is black from the dirt that collected under it. I screamed! Woohoo! My girls looked at me as if I was crazy. My mind was fluttering with ideas. My prayer had been answered. But, why? Lord, did you change the person’s heart, like I had prayed for? Are they just going to sell it, and needed to remove the stickers? But, it’s such an old model, would they really be selling it? I may never know what the answer is. I pray that my prayers prompted God to reveal himself to this person and their life has been changed forever. Maybe that moment I enter the pearly gates, I will be greeted by someone I have never actually met in this life.

All I can say is ” Nothing prevails like prayer”

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it
