Cults…Be aware!

Yesterday I said I would be starting a series on living your best life but today I’ve been lead to touch on the subject of cults and deception. It is running rampant today. With access to the internet, these occults are out on many websites twisting the truth of Gods word. Many are being led astray. My prayer is for everyone to read the word of God for themselves. Do not allow anyone to twist Gods word to fit ones agenda. I came across a preacher by the name of David C. Pack. What he teaches drew red flags so began my investigation. This page countercults his teachings. Research it for yourself!

Why ‘Cults’? It’s sad but true we have Cults, Sects, Frauds, Profiteers And Charlatans Out There Claiming To Represent The Holy Bible Yet Causing NEEDLESS CONFUSION!

Arm yourself with the word of God and ask the Holy Spirit to help you discern spirits of deception.

THIS IS THE SCRIPTURE WHICH WE CONSIDER TO BE CENTRAL TO EVERYTHING

Romans 16:17-18: “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

I believe Gods word is simple. Just ask Jesus to help you understand what you read and he will. Walking out our salvation is a lifelong process. When you come across anything that confuses you. Ask God for revelation. He will help you. If you stay confused. Do not entertain it. Confusion is not from God. Satan is the author of confusion as it says in his word.

1 Corinthians 14:33 The Passion Translation (TPT)

For God is the God of harmony, not confusion, as is the pattern in all the churches of God’s holy believers.


Here is a website I found on Herbert W. Armstrong. He started a cult called Armstrongism. This page countercults anyone who has come under the influence of Armstrong. This page will answer any information you may have. There are many more pages of research you can find. Knowledge is power. Please don’t fall prey to the whiles of the enemy.

The Lord’s spirit has come to me, because he has chosen me to tell the good news to the poor. The Lord has sent me to announce freedom for prisoners, to give sight to the blind, to free everyone who suffers,  Luke 4:18


Stand with me in prayer that hearts will be open to the truth of Gods word. I pray for people to receive discernment of spirits that aren’t from God. The word says my people perish for lack of knowledge. To anyone reading this right now I speak freedom to you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Be free!!! Peace to you! Xoxo


Hosea 4:6 King James Version (KJV)

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

““Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” And Jesus replied to him, “ ‘Y OU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it, ‘Y OU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others].’ The whole Law and the [writings of the] Prophets depend on these two commandments.””

‭‭MATTHEW‬ ‭22:36-40‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Living your best life

cropped-emilie1.jpgDo you want to change your life?

If I we’re in a classroom full of adults and I asked this question I’m sure over half the class would raise hands.  As we go through life and it’s many challenges we discover it’s not easy. Without wisdom we won’t grow. Without learning from trials we will never have true abundance that’s available to us. The tools we need to tap into “the good life” is available within each and every one of us.

In my next several blogs I want to share what I’ve learned through trials and hardships that allowed my eyes to be opened.  We all can have the kind of abundance that’s fulfilling. Where we have absolutely no lack. Where blessings flow like waterfalls! Your life can become peaceful and consistent within.  You will wake up and say “is this really my life?”

Doesn’t that sound heavenly? It did to me too. It is possible.  You can find Joy! Joy worth  having because it doesn’t depend on anyone outside of yourself. It is an inner Joy. Like all worthwhile things it takes dedication and alot of mindfulness to transform. (Renew your mind) With God and practice our vision can change and we will see the world with brand new eyes.  I pray for God to give us new eyes and a new perspective.

I’ve come up with five things to help us shift our perspective from one of lack to one of radical abundance. I’ll cover one of those today. The first thing I’ve discovered is TO ALWAYS BE AMAZED. Slow down the pace of life. Notice more things around you.  Breathe in the air. Look at the sky. Listen to the birds singing a new song. Feel the breeze blowing on your face.  Watch the leaves changing from summer to fall.  Embrace the new seasons. Drink in the sight of natural beauty and  linger longer over small moments.  Drink it all in. Don’t lose all those precious moments because of busyness.

We are rich with gifts, right where we are. Look around and appreciate it. Appreciate your life. Your family. Your friends. Create more memories. Time goes by lightening fast. Embrace the sweetness of time.

Imagine how awesome it is that our spirit is embodied here in this world to feel a soft blanket, a loving hand, embrace our soft fur babies, to read a book, to listen to music, to have a relationship with God in heaven while we live on Earth, to laugh, to cry, to love.

As we move forward through this coming week I challenge you to slow the pace down a bit. Notice the people around you. Family and strangers. What do you see? Do you wonder what someone else’s life is like? What they may be going through? Smile at a stranger. Say hello in passing. You may be the only person they speak to all day. When we have abundance let that abundance over flow into other people’s lives. God blesses so we continue to be a blessing to others. Until next time…xoxo

The Importance Of Genuine Love

This is the best blog! It’s all about love! Please take time to read!❤️

Like An Anchor

Loving other people can be hard. I mean have you met people? Try to have relationship with them and you find out they’re flawed, messy, and might hurt you. Sure they can also be encouraging, positive, and fill your life with joy, but they’re not like that all the time.

Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just have a relationship with God and not deal with other people, at least the ones that are hard to love? It seems like a nice idea to some. “Just me and Jesus,” they say and think that’s all they need.

But that’s not how God means for His church to function. He wants an individual relationship with you, yes, but He also wants you to be part of a church that He collectively describes as the body of Christ and the temple of God. And He expects you to love everyone…

Overcoming Fear

Fear is a little word but has a big part of our everyday lives. Most of us are consumed with fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of rejection. Fear of love. Fear of allowing people close to your heart. Fear of being alone. Fear of sickness and disease. Fear for our children. The list goes on and on. That’s just my list. As I was reading my daily devotional I realized that most people like me who are struggling with their fears have had an encounter with disappointment so great that every dream they’ve ever had is contaminated with the toxic anxiety of failure. When your mind becomes cluttered with “what ifs” there is no room for faith. I’ve always lived my life waiting for the worst possible outcome. That feeling is like living in a cage. It’s not freedom. The saying “where your mind goes your mouth follows” is very true. I was my own worst enemy. I’m being very transparent. I wasn’t just guarding my heart I was restricting my heart. I wouldn’t allow anyone in. I created my own prison. I talked myself out of all the good things God promised me in his word.

I reached a point of being disgusted with myself. I wanted freedom from this mindset. God’s word is what changed my mind and my heart. Another very important thing for me was changing my influences. My circle got smaller. Some people may thrive on your misery to distract them from their own need of healing. Don’t seek approval or validation from other people. Doing this has caused me to make so many mistakes in the past. How those people lead you may be a huge mistake for your future. Never make a decision when you are emotional. Wait until you are calm. You will always regret a decision made out of anger. Trust me.

Growth occurs when we confront our personnel experiences and we grow from them. Placing blame and making excuses never leads to healing. Taking personnel responsibility for our part leads you to a road of recovery. We have to create new patterns in our life’s and move forward. It has taken me this long to learn this. But praise God I’ve learned! Stop repeating the same patterns. Allow God to give you Revelation on this matter to transform your life. Starting today vow to dig deep into his word and claim those promise for yourself. Be careful who you associate with and allow God to love you. He cares about you more than anyone else. Trust him.

“So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6-7‬ ‭MSG‬‬
“Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:8-11‬

““But you, Israel, are my servant. You’re Jacob, my first choice, descendants of my good friend Abraham. I pulled you in from all over the world, called you in from every dark corner of the earth, Telling you, ‘You’re my servant, serving on my side. I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’ Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41:8-10‬ ‭MSG‬‬
““Count on it: Everyone who had it in for you will end up out in the cold— real losers. Those who worked against you will end up empty-handed— nothing to show for their lives. When you go out looking for your old adversaries you won’t find them— Not a trace of your old enemies, not even a memory. That’s right. Because I, your GOD, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic. I’m right here to help you.’”
‭‭
Remember God will never let you down!! Ever!!!

Newlywed

 

We are back from a week long trip to Vegas for a beautiful family vacation and wedding. Something I never thought I would do again but God had another plan. He brought into my life an amazing, handsome, smart, wonderful, loving man who has shown me yet again Gods hand in my life. I didn’t think chivalrous men still existed till I found my Neil. God is awesome. For you girls out their who want to throw in the towel like I did. Wait on the Lord. He will bring that unexpected person to you at the right moment in time.

Our wedding was an absolute fairy tale. I felt like a princess and Neil is my prince. All the kids were with us and we felt the love.

This blog may take a new twist with my new chapter but God always gets the glory. Life is so exciting living for him. I want to share a few pictures from our trip. Today remember it’s never too late for a new beginning. Never lose hope. God’s got you❤️

You

Wow. As I began reading this I felt it in my soul. My breathing became heavier. My heart raced a bit faster. Written extremely well. I’m breathless.

The Renegade Press

If a writer falls in love with you, you can never die. That’s what they told you from the very start. If an author pines for you, you’ll be immortalized in their words. Your eloquence will be captured in their prose as they strum at the chords of your heart and kiss the innermost chambers of your naked soul. So let me take off your clothes and take you in my arms.

Let me enfold you. Let me take your heart in my hands and feel it beat my name. Let me be the air that fills your aching lungs and swells within your chest. I’ll breathe life into your soul and be the man who basks in a beautyfar greater than his own. Throw your bones against mine and feel the solidarity of my embrace. Let my kiss your skin, stroke your hair and settle your racing mind.

You…

LOVE OR HATE?

-broken-broken-heart-26794018-299-300

Choose LOVE over HATE.

 We all have a natural inclination to hate those we see as our enemies. We hate those who hate us. We hate those who hurt us. We hate those who threaten us.

The righteous indignation of anger leads to burning hate.  At the time it feels so justified. We see ourselves as the ones who are right. Everyone else is wrong. Simple as that. Choosing hate is easy.  Loves is absolutely most difficult.

When we’ve been hurt; hate is a natural default reaction for all of us; me included. It feels so good and so right in moments to burn with rage against certain people; even if we claim principles that teach love.

Love isn’t a default reaction. Instead; it is a difficult choice; especially at first. But as you continually choose to walk in love. Your heart changes. Your heart softens and gets bigger. It reminds me of the story of The Grinch. The more he opened his heart to love the bigger his heart grew. Eventually love will seem like the only right choice. Your choice to walk in love will be tested again and again but will become easier. There is never a good justification to hate or to spread your hate to others.

1 John 4:19 We love each other because he loved us first. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t
love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?

1 John 2:8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining. 9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. 10 Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. 11 But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.

Hate hurts the person who is full of hatred. Even if you don’t call it hate. Even if you dress it up as righteous; it still hurts you more than anyone and it hurts the loved ones closest to you. It warps your ability to think clearly or to feel. You see others as sub humans who don’t quite deserve what you and yours deserves. Hate hardens your heart. Even if you feel softenness toward your own kind; you heart is hardened from rage that makes it hard for you to be reasonable and rational. You see everything through the lens of your rage and hate. You will try and justify things that are unjustifiable. You take on “they deserve what they get” mentality.

Those who follow Jesus cant follow him and be raging with hate towards people. He wasn’t vague about it at the Sermon on the Mount. He said to “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Hating others not only damages you. It also damages the ones closest to you.

Today;  join me in making a concious effort to walk in love over Hate. Search your heart and let go of the anger and rage before it destroys you and the ones closest to you. If you need to separate yourself from certain people or influences; do it. Whatever triggers rage and hate in you; ITS NOT GOOD FOR YOU. Maybe you will see the world different without those influences in your life

Join me in making the  choice to Love. Love always WINS! Love is what makes life worth living. I choose love over hate, because the Author of the story isn’t finished.
