TITHING~THINGS BREAK BUT NOT MY TRUST IN THE PROMISES OF GOD


BRING ALL THE TITHES INTO THE STOREHOUSE, THAT THERE MAY BE MEAT IN MINE HOUSE, AND PROVE ME NOW HEREWITH, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, IF I WILL NOT OPEN YOU THE WINDOW OF HEAVEN, AND POUR YOU OUT A BLESSING, THAT THERE SHALL NOT BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE IT.  AND I WILL REBUKE THE DEVOURER FOR YOUR SAKE, AND HE SHALL NOT DESTROY THE FRUITS OF YOUR GROUND, NEITHER SHALL YOUR VINE CAST HER FRUIT BEFORE THE TIME, IN THE FIELD, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS.  MALACHI 3:10-11

I am trusting God, and that promise.  Because for the first time, in a very long time, I made some money, from my new Photography business.  And I tithed, the ten percent, faithfully, and obediently, I took that tithe to my church, and I gave it to God.  Not one penny of it did I keep, without, separating it, to give.

And I am going to continue to tithe, and give my ten percent, to God, for as long, as God in his mercy, will make a way for me to make a living, from my photography, or anything he would give to me, through writing, or other means, I will Tithe.

And with regret, and some sadness, I also share, that today, I dropped my camera, and it broke.  I Shattered, the view lens.

It just happened so strangely.  My husband and I were about to go for a walk.  And I had contemplated, whether or not, I should take the camera with me.  At first, my thoughts were no, but then, I thought, what if I meet a perspective client, and I can take their photograph.  But after dropping it, well, that thought went out the window.  But God promises, in the scripture, above, that He will open a “WINDOW” and pour out a blessing.

So, I trust God.  And even though, the timing of this is somewhat distressful, I am going to trust him.  Even though, I do not have a camera, or money to get it fixed right now, or even an alternative plan.  I believe, and trust God.  I believe His word.

And I don’t know about you or your finances, but I am tired, of barely getting by.  Living on my husbands retirement, and not having enough.  Do, I want to blame the government?  Or the recession?  Or the economy?  Nope.  I have to look at whether or not I am being obedient to God. Because his word, says..Seek his kingdom, and his righteousness, and all things will be added unto me.  Matthew 6:33. So I am seeking his Kingdom, and righteousness.  And even though, I am tired, I am grateful.  So grateful to God.  It is hard, sometimes, but at least we have a home, and food.  And each other, our wonderful son, and for the most part good health.  More then anything though, we have our faith in God.  God is so very good to me.  I need to say this.  I love him, and want to serve him.

And as He blesses me, I want and will bless others.  Today Marilyn Hickey and Sarah shared from their ministry, as they travel to impoverished countries, the poverty there.  And my heart, was touched, to want to help.  DEFEND THE POOR AND FATHERLESS: DO JUSTICE TO THE AFFLICTED AND NEEDY PSALM 82:3. So, I prayed about it, even this morning, and then this happened.  But I will help others, as God helps me.  And I have not been obedient, in the past concerning this.  But I am now.  Especially now.

You see, I am trying to start a photography business.  It is all so very new.  I have only had one paid client.  And I promised, God, that I would tithe any money, I would make from my business.  To those who do not understand, the word “tithe” let me kindly, explain what it means.  It means giving God, the first fruits.  The first ten percent.

My business, is Christ based.  In the sense, that as a Christian, I am going to give glory to God.  In all my ways, I am going to acknowledge Christ is my savior.  Based on the scripture in Proverbs 3:6.  IN ALL THY WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS. This means, in my personal life, my business, my writings, in everything, I am going to acknowledge God, like the word says.  I am not ashamed, of my Lord.  I am grateful, for I was once lost, but now found.  So, my goal in my new photography business, is to acknowledge God is my Lord.  My web page, the link below, gives more information.

Not only do I plan, on taking photographs of people, but I am able to restore photographs, and offer Christian art, with my photographs, I am going to add scriptures to them, and perhaps they will inspire someone, and someone will buy them.  I am also able to create a collage of photographs, with up to six separate photographs, to create a beautiful, page, for someones memories.

So that old devil, is probably laughing at me, right now.  But, I know, I am going to have the last laugh, and with God as my protection.  I just know, and believe, God will make a way, and as the scripture says, above, he will rebuke the devourer.  He will restore.  I don’t know how exactly God will provide for the repair, etc.  But God made a promise, concerning tithing, and I am claiming his word.

Do you know, that in the Bible, this is the only place, where God tells us to test him?  If we bring our tithes to him, faithful, we can remind him of his promises, and test him.  Well, I said, my prayer, and I am believing, God will rebuke the devourer, for my sake, because I have only made one small earning, from my new photography business.  But, I tithed it, and it is holy unto God.  God has been teaching me a lot lately, about this, and I know whenever I go through something, or I see something, I will share it.  Especially, if it speaks truth, and brings glory to God.  So I share this with you, because even though “Things break, but, my trust will not break.  I believe in the promises of God.”

Below is a video, and I saw it at the church, we are now visiting, and I thought, I would share it with you as well.  I feel it is a very symbolic message.  Because God does see.  He sees what we spend our money on.  And he sees, whether or not we are obedient.  Maybe it will speak to you too, especially, if things are broken, around you.  Or you see, you are not being obedient.  And you may have a revelation, or understanding

I pray, it will speak to you as well.  All I know, is my trust is in God, and I share this, because I am believing, God.  Sure my camera is broken, sure it looks hopeless, right now.  But not really…..my trust is in God.  It will work out, and I am believing, for a blessing, because God does not lie.

Hoping what I am going through, may help you as well.  Blessings, and “Just my Thoughts.”  Heres my link, below my prayer, if you need a photographer, after my camera gets fixed, or I can buy another one.

I would love for you to consider me, or at least my photographs.  Maybe theres one there that will minister to you, as well.  Check out the link that says….Christian Art.  And I commit here, to give a testimony to his glory….It will have the Key word “Tithing”  So look for it, as I update you, in the future, and more then anything, give my Father, glory, honor, and praise.  For being so good to me.

Blessings and much love in Christ,

Elena Ramirez

My Prayer of Hope,

Lord, a brief prayer, but my trust is in you, and your word.  I pray, this ministers and blesses someone else.  Lord, I bring it to the obedience of Christ, and I believe.  In Jesus name, I also thank you Lord.  Amen

DO YOU FEAR THE LORD? (Seven Reasons Why I Do)


WHO THEN, IS THE MAN THAT FEARS THE LORD?  HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM IN THE WAY CHOSEN FOR HIM.  HE WILL SPEND HIS DAYS IN PROSPERITY AND HIS DESCENDANTS WILL INHERIT THE LAND.  THE LORD CONFIDES IN THOSE WHO FEAR HIM; HE MAKES HIS COVENANT KNOWN TO THEM.  MY EYES ARE EVER ON THE LORD, FOR ONLY HE WILL RELEASE MY FEET FROM THE SNARE.  PSALMS 25:12-15

This scripture above, is such a beautiful promise, from God concerning “The Fear of God.”  So I claim it, as I do all of his promises.

In talking about the “Fear of the Lord.”  Throughout many conversations, I have heard and also participated in, I have heard many view points.  Some will say, “Well I do not fear God, but I respect him.”  Or some might say,  “I have great reverence for him.  But fear him, no, he is too good to me, I love him, I am not afraid of God.”  Or someone just might say, “Why should I fear God?  I don’t even believe in him”….

Wow, just because you don’t believe in God, does not mean He does not exist.  And I know he does….but for those other comments, well, all I can say, is thats between you and God, but I am careful in this.

For the record, I will just say….I FEAR GOD!

And this is why….There are many scriptures, that talk about fearing God.  And each one, for its reasons, uses the word fear.  So, lets analyze it.

Fear according to the dictionary –

fear |fi(ə)r|nounan unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat : drivers are threatening to quit their jobs in fear after a cabby’s murder | fear of increasing unemployment | he is prey to irrational fears.• archaic a mixed feeling of dread and reverence : the love and fear of God.• ( fear for) a feeling of anxiety concerning the outcome of something or the safety and well-being of someone : police launched a search for the family amid fears for their safety.• the likelihood of something unwelcome happening : she could observe the other guests without too much fear of attracting attention.

Key words here, something or someone who is dangerous.  God has throughout the Bible, shown his power, and that he is able to control, events, or situations.  Why would you not fear someone who has that power?  Think about it… He controls the weather.  Just as one example, but would it not be wise, to know, because of that, he can protect you from the elements?  Protect you even from lightning?  Or tornadoes, or whatever.  But just knowing He is God, actually does put the fear of God in me….to watch myself.

So here are a few reasons why I fear God.

1.  He is not mocked.  And when someone does not “fear” God, I believe, they could be in some shaky territory.  I dread, the consequences of sin, because, I know, we reap what we sow.  But this scripture, from Galatians 6:7-9 explains it:

DO NOT BE DECEIVED:  GOD CANNOT BE MOCKED.  A MAN REAPS WHAT HE SOWS.  THE ONE WHO SOWS TO PLEASE HIS SINFUL NATURE, FROM THAT NATURE WILL REAP DESTRUCTION THE ONE WHO SOWS TO PLEASE THE SPIRIT, FROM THE SPIRIT, WILL REAP ETERNAL LIFE.

2.  It is a Commandment:

Deuteronomy 6:13:

THOU SHALT FEAR THE LORD THY GOD AND SERVE HIM….

3.  I seek wisdom, and understanding:

PROVERBS 9:11

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM: AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOLY IS UNDERSTANDING.

4.  I hate evil:

Proverbs 8:13

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS TO HATE EVIL:  PRIDE, AND ARROGANCY, AND THE EVIL WAY, AND THE FROWARD MOUTH, DO I HATE.

5.  I long for life, sweet life, that comes from what Christ did, because he comes to give life abundantly.  But the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy.

PROVERBS 19:23

THE FEAR OF THE LORD TENDETH TO LIFE:  AND HE THAT HATH IT , SHALL ABIDE SATISFIED:  HE SHALL NOT BE VISITED WITH EVIL.

PROVERBS 14:27

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS A FOUNTAIN OF LIFE, TURNING A MAN FROM THE SNARES OF DEATH.

6.  I am so grateful that by fearing God HE does teach me personally:

PSALM 34:11

COME MY CHILDREN, LISTEN TO ME, I WILL TEACH YOU THE FEAR OF THE LORD.

7.   I fear God, because the consequences are forever…

ECCLESIASTES 3:14

I KNOW THAT, WHOSOEVER GOD DOETH, IT SHALL BE FOREVER;  NOTHING CAN BE PUT TO IT,  NOR ANYTHING TAKEN FROM IT:  AND GOD DOES IT, THAT MEN SHOULD FEAR BEFORE HIM.

And these are just some scriptures, that substantiate, “My Fear of God.”  But to just say it in simple terms, as well, to me, in having a fear of God….  It, is healthy.  Truly healthy, for spirit, soul, body, and mind.  It keeps me in check.  It keeps me in a place, where I will not depart from his ways, and sin.  It keeps me safe, from worldly views.  It keeps me, longing, more and more, to be in his good grace.  I know, that my life, is in his hands.  I don’t gamble on that.  I fear God.  In doing so, it gives me confidence, to know, He can take care of me.  He can protect me.  He can provide for me, and so much more.  You see, God, is not like us.  In the sense, that we look at things sometimes intellectually, but He is supernatural.  His ways are not our ways.  There is none like him.  No one…He is the great creator, of heaven and earth.  And I think it is just foolish, to not see, his power.  Or to not see, his plan.  Thats why knowing, and reading the word of God, gives you insight, as to who He is.  Yes, I do fear God, and I want to please him, because I love him.  I love him, because he sent his son, to die for my sins.  To spare me the wrath of hell.  I am so grateful.  So yes, I fear God.

Just My Thoughts….With  love, in Christ,  Elena Ramirez

ECCLESIASTES 12:13

LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER:  FEAR GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS:  FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE DUTY OF MAN.  FOR GOD SHALL BRING EVERY WORK INTO JUDGEMENT, WITH EVERY SECRET THING, WHETHER IT BE GOOD, OR WHETHER IT BE EVIL.

My Prayer of Hope….

Lord, I love you, I praise you, and yes, I do fear you, seeking to please you.  Seeking to do your will.  Lord, the fear of you is just something, I have because you are God, and there is no one like you.  You control everything in my life, and I do not take anything to chance.  I trust you.  But in that fear, I strive to obey you.  Thank you Lord, I pray this will just bring more understanding.  To know, truly the fear of you, is the beginning of wisdom….In Jesus name,  Amen

This is a Prayer of Hope, I wrote a few years ago….concerning “The fear of the Lord.”

I pray it blesses you.

THE AFFIRMATION OF THE LORD~I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME~ A PRAYER OF HOPE DEVOTIONAL


I Can Do All Things Through Christ Which Strengthens Me.  Phillipians 4:13

Father, I love how you speak to me, in the quiet place of my heart, and speak a word, to encourage me.  To know with you all things are possible, and that I can do all things through you.  I can be victorious.  I have the ability by your word, to accomplish things, I could only dream about.  Thank you my Lord, my God.  For, in this thought, you spoke and gave me specific instructions, that I will obey.  Showing me, I can do something so spectacular, and I can do it!  That strengthens me.

Lord, I humbly ask, please, provide strength to do these things.  As I pursue this.  Make a way, open a door, or close another one.  But let me see, through this process, you are changing me, renewing my mind, by your word, that I can do all things through you.

Lord, someone very special to me, needs to know this especially today.  For, there are many trials, and many tests to overcome just in this day.  But there can be a way,  because Lord, God, my Christ, you are the way, the truth, and the life, and because of your ability. You give the ability, to do all things.  Let my loved one see the  victory in this as well.

Lord I only ask this, in your ability because you overcame ALL things for many of us, for only those who believe….For through your death, and resurrection, and the ability to take the keys from the devil himself, for each one of us, this can be a reminder, a testimony, that we can do great things as well.  For we live, move and have our ability in you!!

And, Lord, I ask that, this would be a testimony, even here on this blog, that others would see this, and be strengthened in the inner person, as I am, by your word.  That yes, Lord, by you we can do all things, and strengthened.  In Jesus name.  Amen

The Best of God (A Testimony) This is a testimony of how God answered my prayer in a sweet and beautiful way.  I hope it blesses you.

WHO DO YOU GO TO WHEN YOU NEED REASSURANCE?


How do you deal with the issues of life?  Those things that come up, and really tug at your heart, and try to steal your peace and joy?  We all handle things differently.  Some are strong, some are weak.  Some cry, some get angry, some pay it with others.  Some shut down…..And just fall apart.  Or some give into the vices of life.  Drugs, smoking, drinking, addictions to people, or whatever….Just to take their mind off of the pain.  And it makes me think.  That if we ever had a need it would be nice just to be reassured.  But who do you go to when you need reassurance?

Do you need reassurance, every once in a while?   Sure you may be mature, you might even be really strong, tough….but we all need reassurance every once in a while.

The reason, we live in a world, where things are not always predictable, nothing seems to be secure sometimes.  And then there are those lulls in life, where everything seems to be fine, and then life hands you a strange change of events.

And you wonder?  Life can be that way.  And as much as I hate to admit it, there are times, when I need reassurance.  Things may be out of my control.  Yes, I have faith.  I try to believe in the best of every situation, but there are times, when I am like a child, in my inner being, and I am afraid.  Or I am insecure.

I wonder if God is hearing me.  And why are things the way they are sometimes?  Why does it seem like some situations do not change?  And experience, has taught me that sometimes, these things are tests.  Tests, that we go through, to see how much we can handle.  The Bible tells us that we will be tested.  That we are in the potters hand, and he is molding us to be vessels of Gold.

I Peter 1:7 says….That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold, that perish though it be tried with fire, might be found worthy unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

So, I have learned, there are things one can do, alternatives, instead of making the situation worse.  Or that would hurt me, or hurt others…and I understand it is a test.  But I want to pass the test.  And not fail.

And I wonder….When I was younger, I did not know how to handle things, and there were times, when I used substances or things to ease my heart, or to just escape.  And I would hurt myself.  Those were dark times, and they were times when I felt very, very lost.    No one would reassure me.  So I felt alone.  And I was alone, or so I thought.  Till God found me.

Now to some, the idea of the notion that God exists is hard for them to understand.  But there is a God.  I know, that I know…that he exists.  He found me.  And I could go on, and share more of a testimony, but I want to briefly talk about being reassured.

Because one can be reassured.  Even if no one else is around, or no one really cares.  One can be reassured, if they do seek God.  If they pray…..and if they search for answers in the word of God.  The Bible.   Even now, and I have been a Christian for many years.  I still realize, I have to search for God.  I have to pray.  I have to look in his word, for answers….

Life is a process, and you learn.  And if you do not learn, and continue to do the things that hurt you, or do not reassure you.  There comes a time, when you must pay the consequences.  And no matter what, you may feel, if you do not get it right, you lose.   God knew that.  He calls it sin.  And he loves us so much, that he sent his only son, Jesus Christ, for us.  That if we believed, things could change.  So, we would not have to pay the consequences.  Christ paid the price for us.

That is how he reassures us.  But we have our part, we have to try….because sometimes people will not reassure us, or circumstances will not change until we do something different.  And I have learned from my mistakes.  So, I do not go back to the old ways.  Of trying to deal with whatever life hands me.  By hurting my own self, or being my own enemy.

Well to answer the question, who do I go to when I need reassurance?  I go to God.  He may seem silent.  He may even seem like he is no where to be found.  But he is there.  So I go to him, I pray, I seek him, and love him and I seek his word for answers.  Because his word, is living, and he speaks through his spirit, and I understand.  And I am reassured…..

THE AFFIRMATIONS OF THE LORD “GOD LOVES YOU~KNOW THIS TODAY”


Dear One,

As you read this, please know, God loves you.  I felt a very strong prompting just to write this today.  And I will repeat it.  God loves you.  In this world that we live in, we do not always hear, “I love You.”  Nor do we always have someone close to us to tell us that same thing, that we are loved.

But God loves you so much, that he stopped me in my tracks, as I am doing my household chores, and obedient to him, I tell you this….Because there is someone who is reading this, that being you, and you need to know this….You need to know it more than ever.  For whatever HIS reason is, he is telling you….“I LOVE YOU.”

You are loved.  You are precious in his sight.  He loves you so very, very much.  No matter what you may have done.  No matter what you are going through, no matter how great your trial may be in life, or loneliness, or lack, whatever it is, God is able.  He can heal you.  He can stop the attacks.  He is able to do far and above what you could even think or see.  He just wants you to seek him.  Obey him, and try….Yes, try dear one.  You may even think of giving up.  In whatever, but he does not want you to give up.  Try, let his love get you through…..This is about relationship not religion (rules made by men, organizations etc. )  So you need to know his love is not dependent on what people have done, or who they are.  This is about knowing God personally, and in his love, by his truth.

The key though, is believing, and searching for him.  With all your heart soul and mind.

This may be the very first time, you have seen or sensed his love.  But he does love you….his love is appearing to you, even as you read this….He is shouting it from the highest mountain…..

I love you….

He says so in his word….Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love:  therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

He is drawing you close to him.  Will you take the opportunity, to draw close to him as well?  And let him show and teach you real love?

If you do not know him, there is a Salvation prayer link below, get right with him, and for those who know him, and love him as well.

The above scripture affirmation is for you as well.

God bless’s you, because he loves you….

Elena Ramirez

HELP!!! WHO ARE YOU ASKING FOR HELP?


Have you ever cried out for help, and you have been ignored?  Refused, rejected?  And your spirit, your heart, has been crushed, by the lack of contribution, or help?  Well, mine has.

Even now, I just got a rejection, in my e-mail.

But that’s o.k.  I have faith, and hope.  Peace, more than I can say.

My trust is in God. But I understand, how devastating rejection can be.  And I don’t know, about you, but after a while…..You think about who you ask for help, and you also think about holding back when needing help.  As a writer, I have been writing my commentaries, my Prayers Of Hope, my poetry.  And many other things, for many years.

And for years, I have reached out to this person, or this organization, and time, after time, I have been rejected.  Over and over again.  The thing is, I haven’t given up.  And it has been over a good 18 or 19 years, that I have been writing for the Lord.  Here and there, with my own self-published book, and the other things I have written.  My mission, and goal, is to bring glory to God, inspire his people, and speak a word of truth to the lost.

Yesterday, I visited a little church, with my husband.  And the Pastor, gave a stern message about “self-help” ministries, and to be aware of them, and that they are motivated by greed.  He also talked about how important prayer is, and for us, to stop running here and there to our friends, etc, for help, when we need something, but to go to God.

So I agree, with what the Pastor was talking about, yesterday.  Prayer is the key….

It made me think, and perhaps convicted me, to be careful about my ministry, and to walk carefully.  But it also made me think about the world we live in.  How much money is needed, and how yes, people, and even good Christians can lose their perspective.  But we are all being judged.  And though, some would not admit to that, any fruit, we display in the name of the Lord, is judged.  It is looked at, and I recommend, as well, for it to be tested.  Test the spirits, to see if they are of the Lord.  This is scriptural.  My goal, and I pray, God would see, even in my heart.  That I don’t want to do anything my way.  I do not want to get into “self-help” or self-righteousness.  Anything, I may bring to you as a writer, even though may be a tid-bit here and there, to help you.  I am adamant, about showing you who the true “help” comes from.  For the sake of true righteousness.  It comes from God Almighty.

For  I have heard the message of righteousness, but when one sees, it turns into self-righteousness.  Beware!  And run, from ministries like that. Those are cults.  Or religion.  (ministries that have rules made by people)  Years ago, I just so happened to be involved in a ministry like that, and God opened my eyes.  And we had left that church.  In whatever one is searching for it should be based on God’s word, and in true relationship with God.  For those that worship God worship him, in spirit, and in truth.

Well, yesterday, the Lord opened my eyes again.  In his truth…..

And this time, it was concerning, my hearts desire, getting published.  And fulfilling my hearts desire, to do this as an occupation, but also seeing fruit, that would bless others, and would bless God, and bring glory to his name, but in all honesty, bring a financial blessing, to help me live, and our family live better.

The Pastor, called the people to go to the altar to pray.  And so I went.  But something in my heart, refused, to ask again….

And I just prayed at the altar.  A private prayer.

To God, and to God alone.

I guess, I am so weary in asking for help, that even though, I know God can show me someone who can help me.  And the prayer of a righteous person avails much, also scriptural.  I am weary.

And I don’t want to ask any more.  I will just go to God.

Well something beautiful and comforting, happened….

Even though, I did not go and ask for prayer, the pastor came to me and gave me a word of knowledge.  He came right up to me, and spoke this word.  In front of God, and the congregation.  Led by God, was he.

And I have hope, I don’t want this to sound pessimistic in any way.  And I don’t want to be perceived as having pride.  But in this balance, of trying to do it Gods way, I really just need to seek God, for it is a holy calling.  Because I know God is able.  I have learned a lot in this process, of writing and waiting for the Lord.  But I really believe I learned one more thing yesterday.  And maybe like the people God freed with Moses, maybe I have been murmuring and complaining, too much so.  That like they, it took forty years to get to the promised land.  Well, I hope it does not take forty years, for me to get published….But I am not going to ask anyone or murmur and complain to anyone from here on.  I am really going to try to refrain, especially when it comes to my writing.  And getting published.

And well, unless God tells me otherwise, I am just keeping my eyes focused on him.  Glued and stuck on God only.  Because I want him to get the glory not anybody else, including myself.

I just felt led to write this.  What I want to do, is maybe, bring to your attention, and even to myself, as I write this, is that, perhaps, God is telling me, by having people refuse me, time, and time again, is that, I need to totally look to him.  Totally, submit, surrender, and stop seeking any one to help me, but seek him to help me.  And really, I want him to get the glory in this.

I know he is my source, but I admit, I kept running to others for help.  And I am not going to any more.  If it is Gods will, it will happen, and he will bring someone to help me get published.  But if it is not, I will still be faithful, for I am called to write, in his name.

Maybe, he is telling you that as well, as I write.  Stop looking to others.  Look To God for help…..

God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.  Psalm 46:1

Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth.  Psalm 124:8

Our soul waits for the Lord, he is our help and our shield.  Psalm 31:20

Blessings, and much love, in Christ,

Just my Thoughts….

Father, I praise you, and seek your answer in this.  Your help, for your glory, honor and praise.  I pray, I am ready, for the answer.  I pray, it will bring people to your throne.  I pray, it will help the broken, the lost.  I pray, it will minister to your people, as well.  I pray, I will be fulfilled in this, for my families sake, as well.  And so I may say, “Look what the Lord has done for me”  Lord, I thank you.  I do….Forgive me, for not always being patient.  As I have waited on you, I know you have changed me.  In Jesus name.  Amen
