Faith Walking


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, 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,  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.

God put a million, million doors in the world
For his love to walk through
One of those doors is you- Jason Gray



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.

I Can Only Imagine

I found myself 2 days in a row, being consumed with prophecy watching. Isaiah 17 and Psalms 83, looming over our heads.

Hanging on the updates and wondering what lies ahead. I absolutely love that I am able to follow this unveiling of prophecy. Not many generations of people can say that. But, at the same time it can be draining, and we can easily lose sight of why we are excited about seeing these things come to pass. Not, because we want destruction, or pain, or anything else like that.

As a believer we are waiting patiently for our blessed hope, and in order for that to happen all these things must come to pass. The sooner they start to unfold, the sooner we are to going home, our real home.

So after 2 days of much intensity, I decided last night to focus on the glory of God, to remind myself of what that blessed hope IS, what comes after the bombs, war, and rebirth of a planet that is in the midst of bitter chaos.

I turned to You tube and watched a documentary on several people who have caught a glimpse of the after life, stood in the glory of our God, felt HIS Love, stood in it. The love HE has is so overwhelming, they described never feeling anything so transcending before. They never wanted to leave. Their spirit was upon the earth, in space, seeing the earth from a different dimensions view. In awe of what they had never seen before. Experiencing the vastness of space and time that is beyond all human comprehension.

Some floated above their bodies for a time, saw their lifelessness lieing in a emergency room, or watching intense brain surgery taking place. Did they long to be back in that body? No, they say once your out of your body, you realize how cumbersome it actually is, and that this is not the natural (how we believe it to be in this life) That the natural is to really be you- your spirit, free of life on this earth. They relay that they realize in this experience they have truly never smelled before, loved before, saw before, lived before.

The most important thing of all was that they were in the presence of God which is indescribable. They felt the love of a mother, love of a father, a best friend all rolled into one, the love was so overwhelming nothing and no one could make them want to go back to their former selves. They have no attachment to the body that lays lifeless, they still love their families but not enough to ever want to go back, but ultimately it is not their time.

They say that death is a doorway into another realm, another life, filled with souls of people from their lives, and also souls of people they can’t identify but they know they have a connection with in this life.

They speak of angelic beings who are constantly surrounding us on earth, that we simply cannot see. That love us and help us, all sent from the Father. Once these people pass through that door, in the near death experience they are able to see all that inhabits the next realm.

Each and every person no matter what their socioeconomic background, religious beliefs or anything else, when dead for a time, are able to know that their IS A GOD. What a precious treasure some of us are given. Maybe for some that would be the only way to get them to the point of believing, and thus being able to pass on to eternal life with God, when their real death hour comes.

After watching this, I was filled up again with love, excitement and glorious expectation of what is to come. Thank you God for allowing these people to share their stories, so that through them your faithful can be encouraged.

John 20:29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Keep your hope, dearest Body of Christ. The best is yet to be, let our hearts not be weary or troubled.

I will place the link here if anyone would like to watch the documentary too.

Be blessed and hold fast to our dear Lord, our HOPE our TREASURE!!!!!!!!!!

I Love you more than the words in my brain can express

Today just praise! Love this song. Reflects exactly how I feel, how I love HIM, how HE consumes my thoughts, how I wish I could express to HIM, to you, to anyone and everyone how much I love and appreciate HIS presence in my life, how HE can turn my day around. How just when I want to give up, HE shows up.
Jamie Grace’s disposition also mirrors mine, Happy, Bubbly, and just plain enamored and in love!

Worthy of Trust

in-god-we-trustWho can you trust anymore? In 2013 Trust has almost been completely depleted in every area.
My friend Marlana and I were having our morning talk and coffee as we discussed our weekends and how we were feeling spiritually. I was telling her how I had been convicted over the weekend as to my prayer life that it was lacking. Two weeks prior she had given me a book called Psalm 91 By: Peggy Joyce Ruth. I hadn’t read it yet, but over the weekend I picked it up and started to read it. The entire book which is 168 Pages is on that one Psalm. I told Marlana how I was reading it and how God promises us thru Jesus Christ all the power and authority through Christ it is up to us just like salvation, to accept it and apply it, and also to believe and trust that nothing that God says comes back void. Luke 21: 31-32

32Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
I said to her I have to learn to trust him with EVERYTHING which seems so un natural, but EVERYTHING down to asking him to bless the meal I am about to eat, and praising him in all that he has afforded me, the bed I sleep in, good health, clean water, clothes on my back.

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

She replied to that well that’s the core of every relationship, “TRUST”. A child trusts his or her parents, a husband and wife are to trust each other. Relationships are defined by trust. This is certainly something I know, but it hit me in a way I hadn’t thought about before. My relationship with God. He wants us to trust him, just as we want our spouses and children to trust us. How can we have a good relationship with God if we are always afraid of the things of this world? When we need something? I would feel horrible as a parent if my kids were always having anxiety over the next meal and every other thing that came up in their day. We as parents are there to take care of them, keep them safe, make sure they’re needs are being met.

That is God to us. Yet we are always having anxiety, trying to figure things out, what are we going to do next in our marriage, careers, solving money problems. We are not communing with him for everything. He’s not bothered by our needs, just as we are not bothered with the needs of our children. I often tell my girls that they can tell me anything, that I am always there to guide them with decisions about school, friends etc.

Our relationship with God is built on trust. A beautiful golden nugget hiding in plain sight.

I pray to the Lord that no one hears these words at the second coming

Matthew 7:22-23 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.

He wants a TRUSTING RELATIONSHIP with us. Are we only doing the deeds? Working the Church picnic’s? Wearing a cross on a bracelet, or a necklace? A picture of the Last supper in our home? Not that those things are bad they are not they are wonderful, but only if you have a rich, trusting, loving, relationship. Does he know you? Personally? Have you spent time with him? Today is the day to start. So on that day he will see you and be delighted to be together with you. One who has sought him in everything, good, bad and indifferent.
