He Has Done All Things Well

        And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” Mark 7:37



     I am often fascinated with the stories of Jesus in the Bible. The stories of His healing and compassion on people (Matthew 8:1-3, John 8:1-11), the stories of Him defying religious odds (we need some of that today). He was/is so kind and so loving, the way He talked to people, the way He healed, the way He completely restored people's lives. He showed them love like no man ever had. He completely set about a new era.

   Look at this verse again closely, And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.” Look at that? "He has done all things well." He made deaf to hear, mute to speak, and many other things this verse doesn't mention. He cast out devils, opened blind eyes, set captives free, and showed loved to complete outcast in society. He did all things well, really well

   And you know what? He has done all things well in our lives too. Oh He really has people. Think for a minute. Really think. Really think about all the moments our Jesus has showed up in your life. All the moments He breathed His truth. All the moments He opened prison doors. All the moments He destroyed the lies. All the moments. 
Think. Really think.




 He has done all things well.

   If you really pause and reflex, you will see that God has come through-making you to hear and see-in so many situations. You will see He's been there for you, when you weren't there for Him. You will see that He has been Your King, He  He has been Your Friend...He has been your everything.

   You will see He has done all things well indeed. Just trust Him, and He'll continue to do all things well. 


Completely and totally.

Sticks Closer Than a Brother

           
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



             I went through a time when I was little where I really wanted to have a friend... I would ask God for a friend to move on the same road as me... I'd write down prayers/things on paper about friends. I even asked God if He could just give me a cat/bird for a friend.

Let me back track a little... I guess I didn't "typically" have friends-my age-when I was growing up. I had some children I played with for awhile, but then others would come and go. And I think it was after watching Anne of Green Gables (for the umpteenth time), or loosing contact with a friend I had, I mostly got like this-where I'd walk around outside praying and dreaming for a friend. I think I had been doing this for awhile when I asked God if He could just give me a cat/bird for a friend.

Well, funny story, I did get a cat that is a really good companion to me, but thankfully God gave me some people friends, and I mean real ones.

I answered a Pen-Pal ad in The King's Blooming Rose magazine when I was thirteen, that girl is still my friend to this day. Then I answered another one, and eventually I put my own in, and I answered more along the way. I met some good friends this way. Not all of the girls I wrote turned out to be my friends, but God blessed me with some good ones. He also gave me good friends when I was at Eight Days of Hope, and gave me friends just up my road...(up the road huh?).

You see God has blessed me with incredible friends, and I thank Him for that.

Have I always been a good friend? Not. At. All. I've struggled with jealousy. I'm not always faithful to keep up with my friends, and be involved with their work. But thankfully God, who is the best friend in the entire world, can help each and every one of us become the friends we should be.

I think we all need to appreciate our friends a whole lot. A good friend is rare and hard to find. Friends that hurt us seem to come in bigger droves. So, we should take time to show our friends how much we do appreciate them. We need to forgive the wrongs that one has done to us (it's not like we don't have things we've done wrong). We need to pray and ask God to help us become the kind of friend He is. Give more than we take. Love and listen. Lend a helping hand in time of trouble. All and all, G I V E.

Take time this week to show your friends how much you indeed, truly care about them.




A man who has friends must himself be friendly,

But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24

        Did you ever see a group of blackbirds flying in the sky? Swarms and Swarms of them at one time, all going the same direction, all sweeping up and down like they were getting over obstacles. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of these birds, but they all are flying-soaring-in the same direction. They work together for a common good. They add to the creation that is around them. They are united.
   Hey, what if we were like this? Soaring together. United in love. United as one. Working together for the kingdom God. Not being divided by our differences. Helping each other get over obstacles. Literally being the church as a whole. Looking so united and so bound together that we would stand out as Christians, and our cause would stand out as us literally running in the same direction-with the same goal.
   What if we were like blackbirds? What if we were like blackbirds, riding off into the sunset together, and hearing, Well done, good and faithful servant.” Wouldn’t that be neat?

T U N E D


*Super sorry I've not posted much on here lately...but my heart is in this ministry. Know I love you, but not half as much as Jesus. Hope this speaks to you tonight where you are.


Tuned

 And He took the seven loaves and the fish and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitude.
Matthew 15:36

I know a lot of you reading this magazine have a calling that God has placed on your heart that you are working to fulfill. The busyness in life may try to hinder it hard, but you still try and keep at it.
But in our effort to pour into others are we letting Jesus pour into us?
You see, Jesus gave to His disciples and then they gave to the multitudes. They were first given what they gave to others.
You see, if we’re not being led by the Holy Spirit in our ministry, our words won’t have a healing affect on people. We have to be in tuned with the Author and what He’s saying or else all our words, all we try to do for His kingdom, will fall flat to the ground.
When we are tuned in with Jesus, like a guitar has to be in tune to play beautiful music, people will be saved in our ministries, people will find freedom and breakthrough, nations will be saved, people will be healed, dreams for God will begin and we will see a difference.
So, I challenge you to get in tune with God today before trying to tune others. A guitar is going to sound flat and horrible, and the music won’t leave people refreshed, when it’s not finely tune. But, if it is tune, in good working order and in line with what the guitar is supposed to sound like-it will sound lovely. Get into what God is saying to you and what He’s all about. Breathe in His presence and the very core of who He is…then you will be the kind of messenger He desires.
Jesus didn’t send that crown away hungry.
Why should you?

A Hero...

Today marks another anniversary since 9/11, the terrorist attacks on The World Trade Center and the Pentagon. 

We know the story of the brave men and women that gave their lives. We know the story of the brave people who gave their lives to stop the terrorist from taking over our country...We know the stories....


We have our country right now because of a loving God and the brave people He used.

A HUGE enemy came against us...but was stopped. Things were hopeless. But yet hope sprang fourth.

You know what this reminds me of?

The beautiful, saving story of Jesus.

You see way back then-sin had separated us from God. We were lost and needed saving. We didn't have power against our enemy...we didn't have hope.

Then comes along a Hero, who is determined to do what He was sent to do. He's determined to save a broken people. He's determined to give hope.

And like those heroes that challenged the enemy and gave their lives...destining to save a country...and like those firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and other people who worked endlessly to save a people...Jesus did this for us. He endure pain for many hours, torment for many hour. And even before that He taught God's word through criticism and opposition. 

He, with fierce determination, saved a people. Saved us from hell and separation from God. He is our Hero. He saved us.


So, let's never forget what those men and women, who gave so much on that day, did. And most certainly...let's never forgot what our Hero Jesus did.

I Made It... Day 2 of Jesus, YOU MAKE THE DARKNESS tremble blog tour!


I'm alive today, this book is published today, because of God.

You see, when I became serious about this book, the attacks came. And they came harder and harder.

And a lot of times...I was desperate for peace...I longed for freedom.


The devil doesn't want you doing what God calls you to do.

He will try to stop you.

But, thankfully, I have a God that will stop him!

So, know today that if the devil comes against you hard...it's a sure sign that this is from God. Secondly, know that God will see you through...if you trust Him...if you fight with Him.

This book is published today because of an amazing God who was willing to see me through. Because of a God that delivers me from my enemies. Because of a God that choose me. Because of a God that counts me more value than many sparrows....

This isn't me. It's God.

Yeah, I got discouraged. I'd cry in pain and from a desperate heart. I even had a break down, so hurt and angry I wasn't better. I felt hopeless. Desperate.

But as always, my God brought me out. And showed me He was there. 

He cares for us. The battle may last longer than we'd like...but it will end. And with Jesus you have the victory.

Today I'm free. And I'm becoming freeer. Jesus brought me out.

So, from the heart of God, I present to you...Jesus, YOU MAKE THE DARKNESS tremble.


Available on Amazon


He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

1 Thessalonians 5:24


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 There is so much darkness in the world...from failed relationships to suicide and school shootings. But while it may seem we're drowning in darkness, there is still Hope. And that Hope is in Jesus Christ.

Jesus, YOU MAKE THE DARKNESS, tremble touches on many subjects...such as relationships, anxiety, depression, and judging. 
This book shows how every generation, young and old, can rise up and get back to being honorable men and women of God. It shows how, with Jesus, we can kick the devil back to where he came from.

Are you ready to start making some darkness tremble? Are you ready to make it vanish? 

Yes? Then let's go?

Why I'm Waiting Blog Tour!

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Proverbs 4:23

Hello lovely people! God loves you so much! Do we even grasp a percent of how much He loves us?

Well today's post has somewhat to do with love, because today I'm the blog for the 5th day for the Why I'm Waiting Blog Tour! Now I know the lovely author and she's pretty epic!!! Purity is one of her biggest passions and she expresses this in her book! Let's take a look at what the book is about:



Why Am I Waiting For My Future Husband?

``````````````````````````````

  In Why I’m Waiting, the author’s first non-fictional book, she shares with you why she has committed to waiting for her future husband. She starts each subject with verses from the Bible, to help show you what God says about purity.
The author touches on the following subjects:

*My Heart Belongs To God
*Being Content
*God’s Choice, Not Mine
*The Waiting: Following Christ’s Example
*Being Prepared
*Physical: Body Is The Temple Of The Holy Ghost
*Relationships
*Marriage
*First Kiss

  Chloe prays that all who read this book are blessed and that it touches their lives; and she hopes you enjoy the many verses throughout!
So, come along and dive into scripture with her as she shares with you one of her heart’s greatest passions!


My Review:💗

I read this way back in May (sister right's😉) and the thing that stuck out to me was that she said what she had to say with a lot of verses! The book is filled with verses and if you're putting your fact on the Word of God, then there you go. Plus the book is super easy to read! I would totally recommend getting this book!

You can purchase it straight through author- if you know her personally or through someone that knows her! Or you can get it on Amazon!

And keep up with Chloe on her blog and on Instagram to for sure keep up with the rest of the tour!

God Bless ya'll and, "Congrats Chloe!"


For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
