Please, Help us.

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: Eph. 5:8



I had a dream about human trafficking last night. I woke up resolved to do something. Ya'll, Jesus said to be Lights. Let's.





The characters in this story are purely fictional. Although, so many cases like these are happening in the world today.
Please, help us.
   Hi. I’m 8 years old. Like most little girls I don’t play with dolls or eat way too much sugar. I don’t cuddle on my daddy’s lap and my momma doesn’t do my hair.

Why? Because I’m a victim to human trafficking. 

I’m not like most girls my age, I don’t have that simple innocence about my age. I was exposed to things that normal eight year old girls haven't been.

I’m older beyond my years.

   Hi. I’m a 11 year old boy. I’m not like most boys my age, I don’t run and play all the time. I don’t have loads of energy and dream-well yeah, I do dream a lot about hunting and getting away from this. I’m so hurt and messed up. 

Why? Because I’m a victim to human trafficking.

   Hi. I’m a 14 year old girl. I didn’t start high school and I can’t look forward to all the new friends I’ll make. I didn't get my first phone a year ago and I don’t post cute pictures on Instagram. My life is a living hell. 

Why? Because I’m a victim to human trafficking.

   Hi. I’m a 18 year old girl. I did go to high school and the first two years were great. I did have friends, I had fun, I felt free. But the other two years weren’t so well. He stole my heart and lied to me. Now I don’t know if I’ll ever find a way out. I’m so dead inside. 

 Why? Because I’m a victim to human trafficking.

   Hi. I’m a 21 year old man. I didn’t have the pride swelling up inside me when I turned such an important age. I didn’t have my mom and dad telling me they were proud of me. I wanted to be happy but the life my mom had trapped me into when I was just a little boy made it impossible. 

Why? Because I’m a human trafficking victim.


   We need your help. Yes. You.

   You may wonder what you can do, you might be young and don’t have a lot of means.

 But you can do something.

 What?

   You can donate money to organizations and get involved with them. You can spread the word. How? So many people have talents. Raise awareness. Sing songs. Write books and articles. Use your voice. Use the social media you do have. Be aware yourself.

   And mostly importantly. Pray. For. Us. Pray for our peace and comfort. Pray for our deliverance. Pray that Jesus will wrap His loving, graceful arms around us. Pray that through this all we can learn to trust in a God that won’t let go. 

   We need your help? Will you give it?

   Millions are being trafficked every day, many times a day. Please. Let’s stand against this.

   “You can choose to turn and walk away, but you can never again say that you did not know.”

   Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

A little message for ya'll










    Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
Hello friends!! Jesus is amazing! And know His grace reaches to the hurting. You may feel utterly alone but you're not for He is with you, And, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matt. 28:20.) You may feel like no one knows how you feel but Jesus does.I encourage you to get acquainted with the One who felt everything you are feeling on the cross but Who also nailed it to the Cross so you don't have to carry it anymore! And. That's. Amazing!

Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all. 2 Thess. 3:16

T.R.U.S.T.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Psalm 91:1-2

Trust. Its hard sometimes. And trust sometimes wavers. Even our trust in God. Right? 
Well it shouldn't, should it?
Our trust in God should be steadfast. It's a wonder to me why we don't trust Him all the time. For He is so good. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Psalm 121:3
Let's think about this for a moment.
God created a perfect world. Men sinned but God had a plan for man if they sinned. Jesus. Throughout history people sinned and turned away from God no matter how much He did for them. But when they cried into Him, He heard, He did answer, and He showed mercy. Then He sent Jesus. He loved this world so much (John 3:16) that He sent His only begotten son to die for us on the cross. The most painful and cruelest death known. To save us. The wretched human beings who have sinned, slapped Him in the face, and condemned our Savior to death. But He loved us SO much that He died on the cross and rose again! We can have L.I.F.E. in Him! God tore the veil of the temple in two, we are no longer separated from Him. We can spend eternity with Him. God has promised to never leave us. (Heb. 13:5). He gives us peace (John 14:27), such beautiful and steadfast peace. And He has given us weapons to fight against our enemy, the devil (Luke 10:19).  He hears us when we cry and gives us healing (Isaiah 53:5)
So let me ask us all this question? Hasn't God proven Himself trustworthy?
The Bible is full of stories of His faithfulness and that He'll always come through! 
Why don't we trust? Why do we doubt? Why do we spend a moment doing this?
When we go through anything He's THERE.  But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine.
When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
 For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour
Isaiah 43:1-3
That is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G y'all!!
Think about it: We are these human beings who have sinned and God says, "I want to call you my Children!" Jesus Calls us His children!! We are the children of the King of all kings!! We are His! That makes us royalty! Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. 1 John 3:1 
He takes unworthy people, and calls them worthy. Love. And so, so very cherished. What Love.

Let's all pray for God's strength to trust in Him! Let's ask God to create a trust in our hearts in Him for every situation. He is our Strength, therefore with His unfailing strength we can trust (Psalm 27:1)!  Let's pray for a trust that isn't moved, we can have this by God's mercy! For the king trusteth in the Lord, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved. Psalm 21:7. He has never failed. He won't start now!

And He has calls us His friends. And wants us to be His best friend... (Psalm 62:8) and (John 15:15)

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?... But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Luke 12: 24-26, 31.
Jesus says if were not able to do this little thing why would be worry about the bigger things? He says to seek God and all these things would be added unto us! T.R.U.S.T. Even when it's hard.

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. Psalm 56:3

Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in Thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto Thee. Psalm 143:8

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8

Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power. Psalm 21:13

But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
 I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
Psalm 13: 5-6

Do not Waste Away

 

 You know how it is when something lays outside, without anything done to it, it eventually gets older and older, more ruined and more ruined, and then... eventually it's gone.

Sometimes, I think we're like that.

We don't do the things God wants us to do, we live in apathy, and then eventually our lives are over and what have we accomplished?  Did we do the things God called us to? Did we shine as lights in this dark world?

I'm very guilty of not doing all these things I should. I'm not good with writing all the articles God lays on my heart or doing all the things God lays on my heart. 

How sad is that.

But this is a sad way to live my friends. A sad way.
Do we want to get at the end of our life and look back and realized we only lived for self, we only did half of what God wanted? 

No, let's do all God wants of us. Let's learn to listen to His voice.

I want to bloom for Christ, not rot away.


And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9

You Can Overcome!

 A lot of ya'll might not know this but I've struggled with OCD a lot. And I know some of you may be like "Big Deal" but it is a big deal but not too big For my God!

I don't think people people should treat OCD so lightly because it can be really, really, really tormenting!

OCD made so many things difficult for me, like reading. Reading can be hard, like your concerned your not getting it or you are afraid your not concentrating so you read the same thing over and over!

But through God I am overcoming and have come a long way! Praise His Name!!! Glory to God!! Hallelujah!!!

My particular testimony tonight has to do with school! School was hard manly becasue of the reading! But God has been working with me in reading I can read pretty normal now! 

Today I started back school and God just showed up!! Praise Him!! It was so much easier to read and I was able to read more! Before I read so little because of how difficult it was! But GOD had delivered and He will continue to because He is Great and Mighty no power of OCD can overcome the Power of my God!!

So if your struggling with OCD or any bondage, GOD IS GREATER!!! And you tell the devil that. You speak to those lies and cover them in God's truths. You tell the devil, "Your lies is this...." and say "but God's wonderful, amazing truth is.... and that He is Truth and Life and through Him I am an overcomer!"You quote scriptures at him like 2 Cor. 10:5, Gal. 5:1, 2 Tim. 1:7, Psalm 139:1-6 KJV! You can overcome because God has given you the power! Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19. KJV

 Jesus took all the pain and torment you could ever feel and nailed it to the cross and through His sacrifice you can be free!!!
 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; Colossians 2:14.... All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:6 KJV. Choose to accept His Sacrifice! Accept the Freedom found only in Christ!

Rebuke the devil and stand against Him, telling him to take HIS OCD and keep it. Stand against him by the power of the Holy Ghost! Claim your right as a Child of God.The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:16-17 .And as a Child of God, the devil doesn't have one right to touch you!

So today I stand free, because of my God! And It's amazing!!! Glory to His Name!!!



 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Galatians. 5:1 KJV

JOY:






Joy. I really think that joy is something God has been trying to teach me lately. I would read about joy in the Bible and now I'm reading about being happy in a Christian book. And it's something I really need to work 
on. 

The Bible says in Nehemiah 8:10 KJV, ...for the joy of the Lord is your strength...Even if everything around us is unpleasant and out of order we have the Lord living in us and He is our strength! Hallelujah!

I've recently started reading Sadie Robertson's book "Live Original"-which by the way is really great and such a blessing and encouragement. And I'm only in the first chapter.😊😊😊-and in the chapter entitled "Think Happy, Be Happy", she talks about, of course, being happy.😉😉😊😊 She talks about choosing happiness and about thinking happy things. And how what you think will become your actions.

So my friends, this is my challenge for us all today. Let's choose Joy. Yes, things are going to go wrong. Yes, things are going to get us upset. But let's call the devils bluff and choose to be joyful.

You may have a certain thing that you have to do that makes you get stressed and very snappy. For instance, when I clean and do a lot of chores I have the tendency to get stressed out, snappy, and very-very-very-overwhelmed. But instead of me being so grumpy about all these chores, I can be grateful I have the ability to do them. Lot's of people have handicaps and can't do chores, I'm a perfectly healthy teenage girl-Praise God-and am PERFECTLY able to do these chores. Maybe you have a similar something in your life that makes you get frustrated and all upset. You could choose to be joyful and look on the bright side of it!

And something else Sadie says, and a lot of people, is that stuff and people won't fulfill us or make us happy. Only Jesus can.

So let's choose to rest in the Joy of Jesus! And that's TRUE Joy!

We have a Savior living on the inside of us!! A Savior who loves us and died for us! A Savior that's always there for us and will help us get through anything! A Savior that Gives us true peace!  We have a God that created the whole universe yet loves us and calls us His Children! And all that is something to be joyful about even when there's a whirlwind in our lives. 

And if you don't have Jesus as your Savior, ask Him into your heart! Accept Him as your Lord and Savior! Knowing He loves YOU so very much and died for YOU! God sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for YOU so YOU could be forgiven and live a rich and abundant life in Jesus Christ! He loves YOU and wants YOU! 

Wow ya'll!! We do have so much to be joyful about! So let's choose joy! Let's strive in every situation to be joyful.

Remember: "The joy of the Lord is your strength" and that my friend, is Amazing!!



The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Psalm 28:7 KJV

You are Priceless

I hope you know today that each of you are priceless and so loved by our Father in heaven!
Love is something a lot of us want, maybe even crave. We put our happiness in it.
But ladies and gentlemen here's my message for you today. A man or a woman, isn't not going to fulfill you. If you think that your heading for a huge disappointment. You can only be fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Fight against the thoughts that tell you that someone else will fulfill you.
Some of you may have been waiting a long time for that special someone in your life. You may have been waiting so long that someone comes a long and you settle with that someone. That person may not be the person you need or the person God has for you but you are so desperate that you settle. You settle, you settle that he or she doesn't threat you right. He or she is selfish. He or she doesn't have the relationship with God they should. You settle that you make all the sacrifices. You just settle. And you may not even see that you are settling. Maybe you have forgotten those character traits that used to be so important to you.
But here's my message to ya'll. Don't settle. Don't settle and be with someone who doesn't threat you like the special person you are. Don't settle for someone who doesn't cherish that precious gift that they have.
You pray for spouse that loves God with all His heart, you pray for a spouse that seeks God. You pray a spouse that desire to seek God more. You pray for a spouse that will love you unconditionally. 
And one day, when you keep waiting and praying-even when it's hard, God will bring the right person into your life and you'll be so, so very glad you didn't settle.


Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? Yet not one of them has [ever] been forgotten in the presence of God. Indeed the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are far more valuable than many sparrows.

Luke 12:6-7 AMP
