Building with Precious things (Continued)

POOR FROM DUST.jpg

I’m going to tell you why I posted this. I used to live in housing projects. We suffered years of poverty I still have the records. Living on 8,000 a year or less even 6,000 a year (a family of four) and I used to quote this scripture “He raises the Poor from the Dust” …….(Psalm 113) 
 
And I’d say “AND IT”S TRUE FATHER” I believe you! Years later, things have really changed for me, and they have. 
Every time I have plenty of toilet paper, I am thankful. And, When the bills are paid, and I don’t get shut off notices I say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU…..experiences like that you never forget all your life! Ask those who went through the great depression……..They just never forget what it was like 🙂
 
I can talk about building on the rock with Precious things, because I had the storms that took everything (and I barely escaped) and finally I got tired of it and said; “change me change me change me” ….people bailing you out will never change things. 
The change must happen from within! We need Soul healing and restoration! We need God to CHANGE US to think LIKE HIM!
 
Amen? 🙏🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
 
The Loving kindness of God WILL LEAD someone to repentance if they have a heart after God in the first place such as “They want to know (the truth). Others will take and take and get mad at him when he wants them to learn and grow up and sometimes Will Basically tell God Where to stuff it and walk away….
 
If you read the book of Revelation, some will NEVER repent. They will curse God no matter what (and blame him for all disasters). I know a lot of people think I don’t understand love but I do. I will walk with someone to the end of the earth If they are just struggling to understand God. If they don’t care, and spit on him, and want nothing to do wtih Him, I’m gonna work with those whose hearts are crying out to him. I wasted so much time on those who did not care (to know) the truths that can make them free. No more! It’s called Co dependency or it could be called strengthening the hands of evil doers. (Bad idea!)
 
God’s going to have a church that speaks the truth once again, not molly coddling those who want nothing to do with Him. The excuses have to stop, And God will show and reveal “who is who” and what is what.
WE NEED God’s Wisdom! WE NEED His input! This is not a game.
 
Those who “poo poo” on all this will have the outcome of their (Own) ways. and last thing: Don’t Worship Angels or anyone but God. They are simply fellow servants with you. #worshipGodonly #blazingglory #choosingGodoverothers
 
“Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he [stopped me and] said to me, “You must not do that; I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers and sisters who have and hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God [alone]. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy [His life and teaching are the heart of prophecy].” Revelation 19:10 (When John saw an Angel)

Moldy twinkies and cheese from heaven

CHEESE FROM HEAVEN.png

The Moldy Twinkies and cheese from Heaven:

I was just telling my husband about these Modly Twinkies we got one time from the food bank. Oh, they didn’t mean to do it I’m sure but I still remember almost taking a bite, to discovery there was mold on the bottom.

We’d had a fire, we got a food box from the food bank, and while I was grateful for the help what a disappointment it was! Horrors!

It wasn’t long after that, my young son was asking me about cheese (he really loved cheese, you see) we’d been through so much, lost almost everything we owned in that fire, including some recent Christmas gits that meant a lot. I had to say to my darling boy, “I’m sorry honey we don’t have any cheese.”

it’s hard to tell your kids you can’t do anything about anything, when your hands are tied and you can’t do anything about it. It’s heartbreaking, in fact. They look up to us, we’re supposed to have the answers. 

I prayed outside (with tears) “Father I know this is a really dumb prayer, but can we please have some cheese!!?? I”ll never forget that day, or the next time we went to church a lady walked up to me and said “this is going to sound really stupid but, would you like some cheese?” ……..

               I stood there, dumbfounded. Then I started to cry. 

See, she didn’t know me. She felt this nudge to offer, but her brain probably said “Why would she want some cheese?” I”m pretty sure she was amazed when I started weeping and declared, “I just prayed for cheese!!” ……

That was the first time I remember God doing something for me (in answer to prayer) that was not NEEDED but it was just his love saying “Hey, I’m here, I heard you!” …..

Now when my brain says “Why would God do that for you?” (as I pray) I remember……

                                 the cheese blessing. 

Blessings and love to you all, Laura Grace, Author, speaker, Minister in training.

Peace!
