Courage To Live My Life With No Regrets

Courage To Live My Life With No Regrets

Faith is something I know down to my toes, I have no doubt anywhere and no worries. Faith is a gift from Jesus Christ. To have faith is really a blessing in these most difficult times we all live in, economy, life, sickness, death, trauma and more. Takes courage to listen to GOD, takes courage to say I am a Christian, takes courage to start your own business in an economy failing, takes courage to say I do to marriage. NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!

Staying In Faith, Never Give UP On Your Dreams

When times are great it is simple to stay in faith

When times are difficult and the bills are coming in or we are running out of options in all areas of our life it is most difficult to stay in faith.  Why? We are human and our brain tends to think we have the answer first, but this only works if we do not change our thinking process. The human flesh runs wild in our mind thinking how to solve the problem. I have learned to pray for everything and let GOD handle everything in his time not my time. This is not easy for me as I like things completed correctly, on time and I like to have a plan. I have learned that having a plan is funny to GOD as GOD is in control not me.

After the semi-truck accident select GOD Created A Miracle For Me left me physically disabled I felt a strong desire to move to Sequim, WA.  GOD placed this on my heart as we will have less rain and the flat ground would be a bonus to help me walk more. GOD also placed on my heart the mountains that I would wake up to every morning a reminder of how far we have come.  My husband Scott and I searched for three years, looking for the perfect land we never found it. One day we received a phone call from our real estate agent saying a man had called wanting assistance in selling his land. To make a long story short the land he was selling is the land we now live on in our 5th wheel while we wait for GOD once again to bring the correct buyer in and sell our last home of thirteen years on five acres in Kingston, WA.

Building a farm is stressful, dealing with contractors who are not honest, do not show up to work or will not do the job correctly is stressful. GOD guided us all the way through the process. The people who were not honest and tried to steal from us were exposed quickly and we moved on with the new contractors who were honest. So many people today say they will do something and then Not show up or not finish the job. Our reputation is an important thing to keep, keeping our word today is especially important when we are children of Jesus Christ as we are representing his kingdom.

Each of us is responsible for staying in faith when life is too difficult. I can remember dying in the helicopter from the semi-truck accident, I prayed and begged GOD to let me go home to my husband and family. GOD gave me a peace that I would make it, I would go home and that all would be better than before. I did survive but I really do not believe I would have survived the semi-truck accident if I had no faith.  The bible says we should have faith as big as a mustard seed for Jesus to work in our life. GOD had already proven to me over and over in my fifty-four years living in this world he is alive and real. GOD had proven to me that he was going to get the right doctors and save me and he not only restored my life he has given us double for our troubles with the land we get to live on and die on one day.

As I sit here typing to you I am looking at a view that is exactly what GOD placed on my heart a beautiful view of the Olympic Mountains and GOD increased our equine herd size. Today we have one Mammoth donkey, three mini donkeys and two horses. Not that long ago I was worried about keeping the three we had.

Funny how everything passes and nothing stays the same and whatever was so crazy and scary last year is long gone. Now a new problem arises and we humans go right back to thinking we are smart enough to solve the problem. I have leaned that I am not smart enough to solve all of my problems not even any of them. GOD is in control of my life. GOD in JESUS CHRIST name is creating the perfect setup for me and all the trials and tests I have endured as no doubt you have, each is a stepping stone to the great reward of a success.

How can we be successful if we have no failures?

Failure teaches us to not do the same thing over again if we are trying to learn. Failure is important as it proves we tried, we did not give up, we did not settle. I am not afraid to fail, I am afraid to settle and accept life to be the same day after day. I never want to live my life being too afraid to step out and trust GOD to take care of me.

Living in a 29.50 foot 5th wheel is not easy in many ways but in other ways it is simple.

My husband and I planned to live in our 5th wheel until we build a one story home for my disability. We planned this for four years after the accident and then about a month ago we moved into the fifth wheel with our three dogs and two indoor cats. Leaving 2400 square foot and six garages was a huge change.

The plus side of this life is it takes us less than five minutes to clean our home. We have more time to play and enjoy life and this is a wonderful thing. We are much more calm as having a big home takes maintenance if you want it to look nice. Living in a field in our fifth wheel we have no gardening to do, no lawn to mow, you get the picture.

Prayer for Anxiety and Worry

I am strong, courageous, and firm; I fear not and am not in terror, for it is the Lord my GOD Who goes with me; He will not fail me or forsake me. DEUTERONOMY 31:6

In the day of my trouble I will call to you and you will answer me. PSALM 86:7 (NIV)

I will not worry and be anxious, saying, What am I going to eat? or, What am I going to drink? Or What am I going to wear? But I will seek (aim at and strive after( first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given to me besides. Matthew 6:31,33

I want to share that I have never received every prayer I have prayed. GOD is not santa he is our father in heaven and only GOD knows why our family will die or leave us for drugs, cancer, car accidents, death. I have lost many very important people in my life and when I prayed GOD did not create a miracle for me they went to heaven. I have learned to not ask GOD why? Asking GOD why is a waist of time, GOD knows the beginning and the end. GOD wants only the best for his children as we do for our children. This I do know we are living in a fallen world and without Jesus as our Lord and Savior we have little hope to make it and enjoy our life in this most difficult and fast paced world.

Free will is not something GOD can change if we have a loved one who is addicted to a substance we can pray but this is all we can do.  Our loved one must ask Jesus to come into their life. Our loved one must want to change, we cant make anyone do anything they do not want to do.  Pray our loved one falls to their knees for Jesus and Jesus will not come into your life and help you until you give up everything and let him start new. GOD wants to be part of our life 100% not just on Sundays or worse for Easter or Christmas. GOD wants to be part of our life every minute and every day. Why? He created us and he loves us and the good news is he has angels to surround us and keep us safe. If we do not ask we will not receive.

Never Give Up – Staying in faith gets easier the more we do it.

Yes, it is like anything we do we need to go to the throne to pray first and not the phone or to complain on the computer. We need to be in a relationship with Jesus from the time our eyes open in the morning to the time we close them at the end of the day. Small prayers of gratefulness is number one. Be grateful for everything in your life as everything is a lesson. Nothing is a waist of time except trying to do things on our own without Jesus.

I pray my words help you and you reach out to Jesus and make him your Lord and Savior.  You do not need to go to a church to get saved, just say these words. Jesus I ask you to forgive my sins, I make you my Lord and Savior, please change me to do your will and not my will. If you can find a good church go but know this GOD is now living inside of you. GOD will guide you and give you favor and little feelings when things are coming along good and bad in your life. Be open to his nudges as they are real.

If You Look Around Your Personal Life


You Can Be A Warrior For Jesus Christ, A Human Angel For A Human Or Animal Or On A Great Day Both!

thanskgiving

You can be a human angel to help another human or animal in need. You can be a human angel and I promise you will feel better about your self than buying yourself more stuff.

The day before Thanksgiving a man who was installing a new door in our kitchen came. He was an angel to me as I have been trying to get the doors finished since August of 2013. I wanted to enjoy our home of 13 years finished before placing it on the market in the spring.

He was working for me and I was preparing the food for our family, cooking home-made stuffing with sweet sausage, green apples, butter and onions. Oh so good and easy. Then I made home-made cranberries sauce, sugar, vanilla bean, o.j. and real ginger.

“The man was working on the new door right next to the stove, he kept saying wow that smells good.”  I said Thank you I do this for my family so much better than the stove top stuffing. I asked him what he was doing for Thanksgiving with his family?  He said his mother in law lives with him as she is dying of a rare bone cancer. His wife is in Seattle all day with her to get chemo. He said he has two teenage children and he has no idea what they will eat.

A tear started to slide out my eye. You see in 2010 I was hit by a semi-truck and I am disabled but I work hard to not let anyone notice it I have three large screws in my pelvis and my life has never been the same.

When he finished the door I had finished these two dishes and another dish. He gave me the paper work to sign stating I was happy with his work from home depot. I handed him a large paper bag full of food to take home to his family for Thanksgiving, he shook my hand and was shaking. He said thank you and GOD bless you and I said the same. He left and I felt so good. Giving is always such a great thing it is the way we were created to give and receive and be helpful to the people in need right under our noses.
