Hey Everyone! So sorry for not posting in so long! I have been doing okay, not feeling too bad but at times feeling very bad. Our God is always greater!

The Lord has created us all for a very special purpose. He has something special for each person. He has a plan for our life! How amazing to think about. Sometimes we have no plans or do not know what to plan for, but the Lord knows all of our plans and His plans for us! As we go about our day, we sometimes forget about the Almighty God who specially made you and I for a purpose. My pastor said something that we all too often forget.....God made this day for you and I! He made it for us, you are here on Earth for a purpose and you are where you are today for a purpose. Sometimes we do not understand our situation or our surroundings, but friend let me encourage you that God has a VERY special and perfect reason and plan for where you are. He loves us more than we could ever imagine. He is here to help us not harm us. God looks on us with love and we should show love back to Him. It is so easy to get wound up in our day that we forget why we are here. Sometimes we can get wound up in our thoughts and forget we have a purpose. God always has His arms wide open and He is always ready to receive us, all we have to do is ask. Ask today friend, ask Him for His provision and His help. He loves us too much for us to sit around and be down. Get out today and let your Jesus girl light shine bright! Let the world know whom you serve!!

Choose joy! "Joy is strength from the Lord!"

The end of Daniel 11:32 says; "But the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits." How encouraging!

Joshua 1:9- "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord the God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

Hi all!
I have been doing ok and had some low sugar issues Sunday night but feeling somewhat better! Please continue to pray for healing and pray for all who suffer from health conditions! 
     Hope you all have had a fun filled weekend and a happy Valentine's day! How amazing is our one true Valentine that we can all have!  Hope you have enjoyed your day and spent some time worshipping the Saviour and the One who created you- your true Valentine! Remember that true love comes from our Heavenly Father alone! His love is perfect-so perfect! Unchanging love towards us that stays constant no matter what! He is always there to us to accept us and forgive us! He loves us so!! On this Valentine's day- embrace the love that flows freely from the One who loves you more than any man on Earth ever will! Allow your love to blossom into a fire for GOD that shows through you! Today I have decided to give everything to GOD! Give it all to Him! Surrender your all to Him...give Him everything! Make a decision every day to show compassion to others and give your all to GOD! He is our Saviour and He wants you to accept His gift of salvation! And if you have accepted God's gift of salvation- thank Him for saving you! God GAVE His SON for us! How amazing and what a true example of love!

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all had a fabulous Friday! I have had a good day after a few bad days with my symptoms from my medical condition! Praise the Lord! I was able to go paint ceramics at a pottery store with my best friend! What a special gift from God she is! I hope all of you ladies have special friends that you can talk too! Our Heavenly Father always cares about us and HE will always be our best friend! As I have a little calendar that sits on my desk, it has something encouraging for each day and today it was a verse from Psalm chapter 56. It was Psalm 56:3-"What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."  Definitely a verse I need each day! I feel like we all have worries and fears that consume us at times and God wants us to just lay everything down at HIS feet because HE will take care of it! We worry so much, but it will never make the situation any better.  We must let go and let GOD! I find it funny that satan tries to discourage us and make us worry when he does not even know what the future holds for us.  GOD does know what our future holds and HE has it all taken care of! Here is something to think about....I thought about this one day and have to remind myself that worry is not from God. This is a little quote I came up with- The devil is the one who does not know the future, yet he tries to ruin your future.  Woah....he is trying to ruin our future, we must allow GOD to stop him and remember that God is the stronghold of our lives!

I hope that you all have a blessed weekend! Thanks so much for all the kind comments! I really appreciate the love and support!

Good Morning everybody!
Hope everyone is having a great day! Thanks for the kind comments on my last post! Very excited to have a new blog! Just wanted to share some encouraging words with you this morning and tell you a little about what I have.  I have been diagnosed with Dysautonomia which has been caused from a genetic disorder called Mitochondrial disorder.  Now I know those are some big words, basically my autonomic nervous system does not function properly which controls all involuntary functions of the body.  This is a chronic disease although I believe in the HEALER! He is my SAVIOUR! HE can heal me from these illnesses! Please pray for earthly healing!
Now to give you all some encouraging words for today...  The Lord created us and HE knows everything about us from how many hairs we have on our head to the health problems we have to our worries and our dreams and even what shampoo is our favorite! How amazing to think about!!! As you go about your day remember Who created you and how much HE loves you! He knows absolutely everything about you and your life and HE cares! We are all someone so special and important to our wonderful Heavenly Father! HE longs to be our best friend! How amazing!
Luke 12:7-"But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows."
AND AGAIN! in Matthew 10:30-31- "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."
He loves us so much..
Have a beautiful and blessed day!

Hi everyone!
I have heard so much about this blogging thing...decided to start one! I thought about setting up a website for my ministry, but thought a blogging website would be much easier! I have several health conditions and I want to start sharing my testimony and story of hope to churches in the area! I would love to eventually have a large enough ministry to be able to travel and speak at women's conferences.  I have been asked to speak at my first women's conference in March at a local church and I am very excited! I ask that you all pray that God continues to open doors for me to speak at conferences! Let me tell you a little bit about my ministry- my logo is HOPE ministries with a flower for the O in hope and it stands for Having Peace Eternally.  The goal of this ministry is to not only help women stay strong through difficult times during life but ultimately to spread the Word of our awesome and powerful Heavenly Father! He gives eternal peace! I am so thankful that the Lord has given me an opportunity to start a ministry for HIM! Please pray for this and I will be trying to post something encouraging each day or every other day! Hope you all have a blessed week!

Philippians 4:13- "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!"
