"Up from the grave HE arose; with a mighty triumph o'er HIS foes; HE arose a victor from the dark domain, and HE lives forever, with HIS saints to reign.  HE arose! HE arose!  Hallelujah! CHRIST arose!"  Robert Lowry "Up From the Grave HE Arose"

I woke up this morning singing this hymn.   I remember singing as a little girl in church with my grams.  Looking back on my childhood, and remember what Easter week was like as a little girl, I can remember hearing that same story over and over, and yet NEVER did I once realize what that meant for me.  It was as if though we replayed the same year over and over with the same play the same songs, the same message, all of which didn't really capture my attention....... well that is until now, as HE is taking me back to those songs, that play, and the message that was spoken, and what that means for me, what that means for my life, as wife, mama, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and HIS follower.  

HE is taking me back to where the story would always begin at church, and is walking me through what happened.  Starting on Palm Sunday, a day of which had no real meaning for me, other than it was given that we would all be given a palm to hold in church, which for me was just another distraction.  It was until yesterday in church that our Pastor spoke about what happened on Palm Sunday set the stage for the BIGGEST EVENT in CHRISTIANITY, where GOD would LOVE the world so much that HE would sacrifice HIS one and ONLY begotten SON.  NOT only that but how JESUS wept because HE knew what was going to happen, and the world was continuing on oblivious to what was going to happen next.  

"When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives,the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Luke 19:37-38

Hearing this as a little girl, I always saw it as a celebration, as that what was told to me. However, yesterday HE began to teach me what HIS word really means,and today HE is telling me it's time that I share with this world what HIS word means for me, as HE takes me on the journey from living oblivious, to living in HIS TRUTH!!!

In reading HIS word I can SEE that the crowd of HIS disciples are all PRAISING HIM, saying HE is the BLESSED KING WHO has come in the name of the LORD.  They are acknowledging WHO HE is, and WHOSE HE is, WHO sent HIM.  In HIS word it is written that ALL PRAISED HIM, and said, "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest."  

Thinking back to HIS word being spoken to me as a little girl, it was ALL about celebration.  I would wave my palm around like everyone else around me.  I would sit silently still next to my gram, holding her hand, feeling her soft skin, and feeling immense comfort.  She often would glance down at me smiling, and when she would smile I knew that all was right with the world................ and there I remained oblivious as to what was going to transpire next.

HIS Daily Teachings today started yesterday as HE began to set the stage with HIS word about the BIGGEST EVENT that was going to lead up to the reason WHY I am able to sing the HYMN I woke up to singing.  HE is wanting me to know that it is imperative that I NOT only know, but understand what HIS word means for me.   

" Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”  “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19:39-40

I remember earlier when my journey with HIM began after I repented, and asked HIM to come into my heart, and into my life, that we were given stones as a reminder to "live louder than the stones."  HE is reminding me that I am HIS Disciple, and that means that I am no longer oblivious as to what that means for my life.  HE is telling me to soak in HIS word, write it on my heart, and LIVE it so that even when silence surrounds me, I will be LOUDER than the stones, as they too are living, as HE created them.  

HE is telling me that HE didn't rescue me just so I would have an easy life.  HE is wanting me to know that HE rescued me because HE knew that I would speak HIS words and that I wouldn't shrink back, as my life has been written on purpose by HIM that NOT only would I survive, but that I would conquer absolutely every single storm that the enemy whips up to try and take me out with.

Through HIS FAITHFULNESS to me, I am NO longer living oblivious to the fact that twenty four weeks ago the most malicious attack by the enemy was staged.  It was on the very day that I surrendered all, and was ALL in no matter what that the challenge was accepted, and that was the day that my heart would shatter as my whole world and life as I knew it was forever changed.  

I remember in the first part of this horrendous journey of living without Seth thinking "how is anything going be good ever again?  How on earth will I ever be able to smile again?  How LORD, how, I just don't SEE it. "  HE is taking me back to those first few months into my thought process, and is letting me know that HIS timing is truly perfect, as I wouldn't have been able to SEE what HIS word really means for me then, but because HIS timing is truly perfect, HE has built me STRONG, and has lead me out of the pit of despair that kept me oblivious as to WHO HE is , WHAT HE has done, and WHAT HE will continue to do.  

" As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it  and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.” Luke 19:41-44

In all the times that I have read HIS word, I have remained oblivious to the fact that JESUS wept.  That is until yesterday when my Pastor's teaching was specifically about how JESUS wept.  HE is wanting me to know that in the past five months I have wept, I have sobbed, and I have come completely undone.  HE is wanting me to know that HE has been there with me, and knows of my pain.  HE is telling me that HIS timing has been perfect for me, as looking back to when the fog was lifted, and then when the sorrow was lightened was because that was when it was time for me to be set free from LIVING oblivious to what HIS sacrifice really means for me.  

HE is telling me that NOW is the time where I am to speak HIS words, boldly and courageously as I know that I have been CHOSEN as HIS ambassador to BE HIS living vessel as HIS messenger of HOPE, to shout HIS word, scream HIS word, to ALL the masses of WHO HE is, and that FEAR NOT FOR HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD.

HE is wanting me to LIVE out HIS truth, of HIS words as it is written of what really happened on that Palm Sunday.  HE is telling me that HIS timing is truly perfect, as HE knew when my heart would be ready to speak HIS words again, and that all of my fear of being left alone would be washed away, as I know HE is with me, as NOT only do I know now that HE died for me, I know that HE wept for me.  

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." Ecclesiastes 3:11

In thinking about HIM weeping for me, there is comfort there.  I know that because of what I have been through in losing my precious little son, I know that I have more compassion for those that are hurting.  I have always considered myself a compassionate person, but that is only because of visible hurting that is displayed to me.  To be honest until Palm Sunday service yesterday I was truly oblivious to just how broken, and fallen this world is that is so FULL of the last, the least, and the lost.  

In choosing to LIVE in HIS light, so many things are becoming clearer to me, and ONE is my purpose, and even though I may NOT feel as if though I am able to LIVE out my FAITH as HE knows I can, I can TRUST that HE has already written my life so beautifully and specifically for me, so that I would be able to be HIS light.  

HE knew that I would lose my precious little one year old son Seth.  HE knew that my heart would be shattered.  HE knew that I would cry with the deepest anguish from the depth of my soul, in complete and total agony.  HE knew that I would fall flat on my back, cast down, begging for relief, from the most horrendous pain I had ever felt in my entire life.  HE knew that just as HE helped me overcome the horrific things that happened to  me when I was younger, HE would do the same for me in helping me overcome the massive loss of my sweet little boy.  

HE is telling me that NOT only did HE know all of that, but HE also knows what is to come for me, meaning what lie ahead in my future for me.  In thinking about that, I know that the only reason that I am NOT still living oblivious to WHO HE is my life, is because HE first WEPT for me, and then HE DIED for me.  After dying for me, HE overcame DEATH, HE DEFEATED DEATH!!! HE did this for me, so that I would be able to LIVE in HIS KINGDOM now here on Earth, and then for all of eternity with HIM and HIS FATHER in HEAVEN.  HE knew...... HE knew my days of living oblivious would be over, HE knew the TRUTH, HIS TRUTH would be revealed to me, so that I would know that the same POWER that is in HIM to OVERCOME the grave, DEFEAT DEATH now lives in me.  

Through HIS power and HIS authority, I am able to speak against the LIES of the enemy.  I can't go into much detail yet, but I will say this double blessings are surely happening for myself and my family.  However, in knowing that we are being doubly blessed, I can tell you that there has been a part of me that has been holding back..... afraid..... fearful of loss, of hurting, of any type of pain what-so-ever.  

Yesterday HE knew that I was fearful, mean I was so FULL of fear, and HE sent one of my soul-sisters to boldly speak HIS words to me.  She said, "fear, you know where that comes from right?  It's NOT from GOD...... it's NOT yours, so don't even pick it up!"

On the long drive home yesterday I prayed about what that meant for my life, and it was then that HE spoke straight to my heart....... 

because I have overcome the grave, defeated death, because I love you, you Heather will no longer live OBLIVIOUS as my power and authority live within you.  You will know that means that you don't have to pick up fear, you can be rest assured that through my Blessed Assurance that I have you, your story has already been written, and you are blessed enough to be living it!  You  don't have to pick up the fear that is being placed before you, it's not yours, I am yours, MY TRUTH is yours, MY LIGHT is yours, MY TRUE FREEDOM is yours, never forget that, because I have wept for you, I have died for you, and I have OVERCOME for you, and just as I have OVERCOME, with ME, through ME, you too my precious daughter will OVERCOME.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in CHRIST JESUS, I pray that you will know that just as HE wept for me, HE wept for you too.  I pray that you will come to know HIS amazing love and grace that HE wants to pour over you, and into your life to bring you closer to HIM so that NOT only will you LIVE in HIS presence, but that you will be able to experience HIS perfect love.  I pray that you will know that no matter how rough the storms may be in your life, HE is FAITHFUL, HE is TRUSTWORTHY, and with HIM and through HIM you too will be able to OVERCOME the storms in your life.  I pray that you will seek HIM repent of your sins, and allow HIM to teach, lead, and guide you so that you too will taken out of oblivious living in the darkness, and be brought into HIS light  where TRUTH LIVES.

Always with love and prayers, because of HIS grace, that I am full of HIS compassion and understanding,

Your Sister in CHRIST JESUS,

life happens

"being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6

More than ever I am learning to identify the lies of the enemy.  The more I am living this life walking through grief with HIM, I am learning that the enemy is truly lame and predictable.  I say this because it never fails that on the days where I wake up feeling peace, as soon as I acknowledge that, and PRAISE HIM for it, something happens..... life happens.

"Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.  Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!  Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?  Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” John 8:42-47

Currently D and I are parents to a 16 old daughter who is now learning to drive.  She just finished up her sophomore year, and in two months she will be starting her junior year.  She is on track to graduate this December, and attend college in the Spring of next year.  We also have a 14 year old daughter who is set to graduate from 8th grade in just two months, who is also starting to plan on what she is wanting to do after high school.  Our 10 year old daughter is going to be starting 5th grade in the fall, and is in the hard place of not being a teen yet, but not a little girl anymore either.  She desperately wants to be just like her sisters.  Our son is 6, and is just finishing up k5, and is so full of life, fun, energy, light, JOY, and yet in the midst of all of that incredible sadness overwhelms him on almost a daily basis. 

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18

D and I are in our 16th year of marriage, and 20 years of being together.  Daily we both choose to LOVE, HONOR, and CHERISH one another, because of our overwhelming desire to please HIM.  We choose because of the covenant we have with each other and the LORD.  However, that doesn't mean that we don't struggle, as marriage isn't easy, but where two hearts are willing, it's totally worth it.  I can tell you that in our 20 years of being together life has truly happened to us.  

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." Ecclesiastes 4:12

" Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Matthew 19:4-6

On October 13, 2014 at 4 p.m. our family learned what happens when life happens, or in our case, death happens.  In thinking about the difference of the two there is one commonality that they share, and that HE is in both of them.  It was within the first few days that HE revealed to me that HE is truly in the details of each and every single aspect of our lives.  It was then that HE began to teach me that though I SEE life as, life happens, HE knew it was going to happen, and because of HIS great love for me, HE prepared me for it, with a SOLID ROCK FOUNDATION of FAITH for me to cling to, to stand firm in, to lean in, and press deep into, so that as life happens continued, I wouldn't be swept out to a sea of sorrow, sadness, anger, despair, and hopelessness. 

"The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;  my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold." Psalm 18:2

"For who is God besides the Lord?  And who is the Rock except our God?" Psalm 18:31

Looking back on  my life, I SEE a whole series of life happens events.  In knowing that, I can also look back on my life, and remember what it has been like since May 24, 2013 where HE began to take me through the greatest breakthroughs that whenever I began to experience another event of life happens I knew that I could TRUST HIM, as HE had taken so much time to prove to me that HE is indeed TRUSTWORTHY, and HE is indeed FAITHFUL.

"For the word of the Lord is right and true;  he is faithful in all he does." 
Psalm 33:4

"Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant." 2 Samuel 7:28

HIS Daily Teachings today is working hard on my heart about how I am responding to the circumstances in my life whenever the realization hits of life happens.  HE has been telling me, and teaching me, that it is inevitable that life is surely going to happen, that its guaranteed that I will experience many more events where life happens.  HE is wanting me to know that rather than just falling completely apart each time life happens, I must cling to HIS promises that HE will work everything out for HIS good.

"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.  For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?  But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified." Romans 8:18-30

Currently D and I are in the process of purchasing a new home for our family.  A home that is a culmination of many prayers, and desires, even unspoken prayers and desires for our family.  A week ago yesterday we began to prayerfully search for our home.  I specifically prayed last Friday morning that HE would lead us straight to the house that we would be able to call home.  It just so happened it was the first house that we stepped into that tears welled up in my eyes, and I immediately felt at home.  Looking at each of my children's faces told me that they felt the same way.  

" Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”" Luke 1:45

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6

"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8

We continued our search for a house by viewing other houses, and in every single one, we ALL went back to the first house.  With each house we viewed I prayed, "LORD if this isn't the right house, SHUT THE DOOR, and lead us to the house we are to call home."  In each house, there were things that were just deal breakers for us, and always pointed us straight back to the first home we saw.  

To be honest I was caught off guard that this house was the one we were to pursue,as it's street name is the same as the town we purchased our first home in ten years ago.  However, in knowing that HE truly does have sense of humor and knowing full well that HE is truly in the details, I asked HIM, "LORD, really?  Is it possible that we found that name too soon, it just wasn't the right one?"  Hmmm, perhaps, but more than that I would like to think that though how much easier it would have been for us to just keep waiting for HIS timing to find that particular house, and how much we could have avoided all the instances, and events where life happens threatened repeatedly to tear our family apart. Even in thinking that I can't help but to thank HIM for all of the life happens moments in our families lives, as that is how HE grew my FAITH in HIM, to prepare me to HOLD FAST, HOLD TIGHT to HIM and HIS Promises when I would experience the most horrendous moment where life truly happened.

Thankfully somewhere along the way of life happens HE began to teach me that HE is indeed SOVEREIGN.  I didn't really understand what that meant for my life for the longest time, and instead of just TRUSTING HIM, I worried, and worried, and worried that I was worrying to much, and in worrying about that, I continued to worry even more.  It was if though I would get through a life happens moment, and the next wave would hit.  

For ten years our family has been through continuous tests, trials, and storms, all of where we experienced the harsh reality of life happens.  However, in looking back on the last ten years, I can tell you that HE truly has made good out of ALL the bad that has happened to our family.  I had this very conversation with my 16 year old daughter the other day.  

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

I know that HE is truly working hard on my heart, to change me, to mold me, to understand that HE doesn't promise that bad things won't happen, as it's inevitable as this is a broken and fallen world.  However, HE does promise that when life happens HE will be there, and HE will help me through what ever the circumstances may be. 

" I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." Philippians 4:11

I can tell you that in the first few weeks of losing Seth my FAITH was strong, as HIS presence was truly felt.  However, as time passed by, and phone calls became less and less, and life continued on, as the whole world failed to even miss that Seth was gone, my anger began to rise.  Around the 5th month of mourning and grieving Seth, I was in a deep pit of anger, despair, sorrow, sadness, pain, anguish, and yes depression.  I was most angry at the fact that depression was trying to take up residence within me. 

Every morning I would wake up and beg HIM to make it so that life happens wouldn't kick my butt anymore.  So naturally when life happens reared its ugly face, I grew angrier at HIM, and though I loved HIM, and trusted HIM with so much, I was beyond devastated that HE could have possibly done this to me, to my family, after all weren't we doing exactly what HE wanted us to do in raising our precious five?

What do you do when you are so angry with HIM that you can't even SEE straight?  What happens when you can't even lift your head to SEE HIS light?  What happens when the bitterness, the ugliness, and the animosity of ALL things good in the world happening to others, is thrown in your face, and all you can SEE is another wave coming at you?  What happens when your so far out into the deep ocean of despair that you know that if you let go of your FAITH in HIM, you will surely drown?  What happens when you have LIFE SPEAKING people that HE has so lovingly placed in your life speak HIS truth to you, and all you want to do is scream, "YOU HAVE NO FREAKING IDEA!!!!  YOU have NO idea how badly I want what you are saying for my life!!!  You have NO idea how badly I want to be DONE with this!!! Over and over so many wonderful soul-sisters and brothers spoke HIS truth to me, and over and over my rage grew a little stronger each time, and yet even in my anger, I still cried out to HIM "LORD please I beg of you to take this from me, I beg you to rescue me!!!!"

This was my life, until two weeks ago, as two weeks ago, I made the choice that I was NO longer going to live my life in sorrow, rather I was choosing to live my life in HIS light, full of HIS JOY, where I would be overwhelmed and soaked in HIS amazing grace, and endless peace.  It was then that I felt HIM speak to my heart that I needed to admit to HIM how angry I was at HIM for what HE had allowed to happen.  I needed to admit that I was devastated by HIS plans of life happens to be my reality once again.  I needed to admit that I was so full of bitterness, and hatred towards HIM, and everyone around me.  It was only then that I had to face the harsh reality that once again I was living through another event, the most tragic event of life happens that I have ever known.  

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy,  and with my song I praise him." Psalm 28:7

I wish I could say that I was able to learn this straight away, however since I have already established in previous posts that I am indeed a slooooooow learner, it took some time.  It was because of HE amazing LOVE for me, HIS perfect LOVE for me, that HE knew just how to teach me all about HIS unconditional LOVE for me, and no matter how angry I was at HIM, no matter how hard I tried to push HIM away, HE was always going to be there.  HE taught me this through my a series of life happens events with my 10 year old daughter.

My breakthrough came on a particularly hard day of arguing, and total heartache in our relationship as Mama and Daughter.  I was truly ready to pull my hair out, as WHY oh WHY couldn't she SEE that NO matter what she does, she will NEVER lose me, I will NEVER turn my back on her, as I love her so fiercely and deeply, as HE has taught me that LOVE, because that is HOW HE LOVES me............ it was in that moment that the light bulb came on and HIS LIGHT began to SHINE BRIGHTER than the SUN, that is exactly what HE is wanting me to know about HIS PERFECT LOVE for me.  

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

" Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

It was then that HE spoke straight to my heart, that ALL of my anger, HE could handle it, that even though I was falling apart from continuous events of life happens, HE is SOVEREIGN, and that means NOTHING, NOT one thing EVER catches HIM off guard.  HE was wanting me to know that HE knew how angry I was going to be at HIM, LONG before I even knew.  It was then that I learned that NOTHING I could EVER say or do would EVER drive HIM away from me, or take away HIS PERFECT LOVE from me.  It was then that HE taught me to let go of my FEAR of HIM leaving me.  HE taught me that HIS PERFECT LOVE will cast out FEAR!

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." 1 John 4:18

For the past two weeks HE has been teaching me how I can forgive HIM, how I can SEE that HE is indeed good, how HE is truly in the details of each and every single aspect of my life, and my families lives.  HE has been reminding me of this by leading me straight to HIS word, to meditate on, to soak in, to lean in, to press in, to TRUST in, to BELIEVE in ALL because of HIS PERFECT LOVE for me.  

"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace" Ephesians 1:7

I can honestly tell you that I have indeed forgiven HIM, and am choosing DAILY to TRUST HIM, as I know as HE has proven to me time and again, that HE is indeed TRUSTWORTHY, and HE is FAITHFUL!  In knowing this HE is building me strong through HIS promises that are teaching me of HIS PERFECT LOVE so that when life happens I will know that HE is truly hiding me under the shelter of HIS wings, and HE will FIGHT my EVERY battle, and because of that I will have NOTHING to fear.  

"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." Psalm 91:4
This I know, and understand is HIS purpose, HIS plan for my life.  To build me STRONG, in HIM, and with HIM, HE will lead me through a series of life's events where life happens, and I will NOT waiver nor will I shrink back in my FAITH and TRUST in HIM.  This I know and understand is the very reason WHY HE has prepared in the exact way that HE has, as HE knows my potential, and has taught me that so does the enemy, and that is when the choice is laid before me each and every single day of my life that I am given by HIM. 

"He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. " Psalm 40:2

"I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself." Psalm 89:2

" But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved." Hebrew 10:39

HE is wanting me to know that the choice is this, when life happens, I can either give into the enemy, the evil, and live oppressed, depressed or I can cling to my FAITH in HIM, and TRUST that HE has me, and with HIM, and through HIM, HE will use me to overcome evil with HIS good.  It is NO coincidence to me that the message at church has been Whats GOD's mission?  To overcome evil with GOOD.......  

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12:21

"I write to you, dear children, because you know the Father. I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one." 1 John 2:14

Today my Dear Brothers and Sisters in CHRIST JESUS, it is my fervent prayer that you will come to know and experience HIS PERFECT LOVE for each and everyone of you.  It is my prayer that even in the events of life happens, you will know that HE is indeed SOVEREIGN, and even if you are angry at HIM, HE already knows it, and is waiting for you to confess, so HE can show you HIS goodness in all of it.   My dear friends, I pray that you will be able to read my testimony of HIS FAITHFULNESS in how HE REDEEMED me by HIS PERFECT LOVE, and know that HE wants to do the same thing for you.

" The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

Always in love and prayers, with much compassion, and grace,

Your Sister in CHRIST JESUS,

~ Heather
