Dear Father in the name of Jesus I pray….be with me today as I share this message and give me living hope, that what I say shall prevail, over every scheme of the enemy, and that it will help pull down strongholds, break barriers, crack doors wide open, and break every chain of bondage. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
“Don’t get your hopes up,” ever heard that expression? It’s a definite self-preservation stance. There are people who will risk rock-climbing, bungee jumping, or most anything dangerous, and yet they fear one thing the most: FALSE HOPE.
There are atheists who believe we must protect ourselves from this, and there are Christians who are far more terrified of “looking like a fool” than they are of death itself.
Don’t kid yourself, every minister of God who ever stepped out in Faith, said things like “you will get your miracle today,” faced the fears of false hope, before they ever said it.
I lost count of how many times I looked into the precious faces of my children, and they said to me “mom, what are we going to do?” (For we went through a lot of turbulence in our lives,” and my heart and mind would pray “Father please don’t allow me to give them false hope, show me what to say!” “Father please I need you to be with me, before I ever open my mouth!” ……
Well, He was always there………
But, where do these fears come from? I will tell you. Mostly, they come from those who did carelessly dish out false hope (In times past). Someone said everything would be okay and it wasn’t, or they said everything will be just fine and, it wasn’t fine.
However, that’s no excuse, for me anyway, to give up on the possibility of miracles, every single day of our lives. Signs and wonders follow those who believe (for miracles) Not those who do not believe for them. It’s very clear! So Let’s ask this question then,
Father, what miracles do you want me to believe for? Because I know you want me to believe for them! I know you are a miracle working God! This way, we have both submitted ourselves to God, (book of James) and we are resisting the devil, who says we should be afraid to hope…….
I have yet to meet a true believer who was ever sorry they had faith……..Sooner or later, regardless of the outcome, their faith is honored by God. They may not get it how they thought, when they thought, or maybe didn’t have quite the outcome they thought….
But a miracle did happen! I have seen it too many times not to believe this, with all my heart……..With love and affection, and I will say this again, don’t fear false hope! It’s not the damaging monster it claims to be.
Good Morning! you know, God spoke to me, Back in March 2016
About Corruption. If We are constantly exposed to the elements of
This world, WITHOUT The continual preserving power of God’s Spirit,
WE can become corrupt. Revelation 2 talks about a corrupt church.
Many know, (down deep) they should not be holding a grudge, or
hating anyone, but they do it anyway. God doesn’t hate anyone, but
Corrupt Christians are bad examples………
Let those who have become corrupt, bear the weight of their own shame!
They know better. (They really do). Hebrews 10 and Hebrews 16 talks about
This very thing: You know better!
God writes his laws on our hearts…….
Corruption happens when Christians refuse to let God change them,
or let the Kingdom of God be built within them……
and like Judas, THEY KNOW BETTER!
I counsel you, God counsels you, Jesus counsels you (and us)
Go for the Gold! Ask for refining! escape corruption!
Hi, It’s me again, Laura Grace.
I was actually coloring in my adult color book when this came to me. I did pray today, asked The Lord to speak into my life. I have something to share with you right now, something very important. When God said “thou shalt have no other gods before me”
He didn’t just mean other gods, as in religious statues, or Zeus, or whoever. He also
meant your problem, your child, your spouse, your job……….Money Problems?
Anything taking over your mind can be an idol. So much for pointing fingers at drug
addicts, or whoever YOU think is in sin, right? Right! NOW (here’s the good part) THE
REASON! God’s not mean! He doesn’t demand in a roll of thunder we have no other gods
because he is going to get so furious at us for not putting him first. The Jealousy he has is
a love type of jealousy, not the fleshly type we are used to seeing, or experiencing.
GET THIS: He just loves you so much, he doesn’t want these other things getting in your way so, he can’t really speak to you, can’t get across to you, what he wants to say. He cries
over it, weeps over it………..
Now, if you hate God, have sided with the devil and are shaking your fist at him, that’s another story! But if you are his child? HE JUST WANTS YOU TO GET IT! So badly he said,
No other gods…….no problem no nothing, don’t let it get between us, (he is saying) Because I really WANT YOU TO get MY WISDOM ……….Because I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
Well thank you Father, Thank you love us SO much (THAT MUCH) That you would do anything for us to get it. Even sending your Son (Jesus) ……to spoil all those principalities
and powers……….Your anointed servant,
Laura Grace (Peace!)
I don’t believe in weak prayers……….
What I believe (and will always believe) is that the Holy Spirit SHOWS US how to pray. This, like everything else, has to be activated, and applied, in order for it to work.
When I am hit with a big problem I pray like this “Father, You said in your word, the Holy Spirit teaches us how to pray” and I ask God what he would like me to pray! This is based on the passage “If we ask according to his Will, he gives us what we ask.”
Many people take “the easy way” out on this and just pray for God’s will all the time. There are others who wear themselves out, beating on the doors of heaven for what they would like to see happen. Neither of these extremes is good.
The Holy Spirit will never give you a weak, apathetic, lifeless prayer.
HE will direct you pray things GOD IS going to answer! Then you can stand firmly in Faith and not waver (like Father Abraham) because you are believing for something the Lord promised to YOU Personally Via the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is your teacher, coach and counsellor, given to you by the Grace (undeserved favor) of God!
If you want to see more answered prayer….ask the Holy Spirit to show you how to pray!
I love you. I am called and chosen to write this. I write it to help and encourage you.
be blessed! Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. (and after the wordless groans, He shows us how to pray, giving US the interpretation!).

A poem by Laura Grace based on James 1:22-25
Let go of what you cannot change
Your life will never be the same
Cast your cares upon the Lord
Hold your ground, wield your sword
The sword of truth, the shield of faith
Keeps you alive, to run your race
Enjoy the ride, as much as you can
Pray to become a brand new man
It’s really simple, and talk is cheap
You’ll be transformed, if you just stay meek
The Meek inherit, all good things
And stay out of trouble, whatever life brings
Do you know why, this saying is true?
Begins with you
Laura Grace, Author, Minister

The Disciples Knew what was coming, others did not. His Friends knew,
because they took the time to ask him, to seek him, and they really did
want to know. Whosoever wants to know, will truly know…….
Bullies! We all know they are bad, and tend to intimidate, such as in this scene (above) from Little House on the Prairie, where the town of Walnut Grove, is visited by bullies.
In this episode, (called the Bully boys) the kind, nice, and even hospitable town’s people, are duped into helping a clan, which they later learn, are bullies.
We sort of get the feeling it’s because of their Christian charity, that they ever open their doors to these guys (who are bullies) In the first place!
Hey I’m just one little gal from Montana (who Prays) Not saying I know much, but I do know what a bully is, when I see one, and I do know about COMMON SENSE!
WE need Spock-like thinkers for leaders (Speaking of Hollywood) who say things like “The needs of the many, outweigh, the needs of the few.” And, Spock was no hypocrite, he did lay down his life (for the needs of the many) in the Wrath of Khan. There was none of this, “Oh Poor Khan,” He just had a difficult time, and needs to steal our ship! Nope!
In this little house episode, the town took care of it, ran the bullies out of town. They didn’t have to pray first, wonder if they were walking in love, or whether they were being politically correct (or not). A bully is a person who believes the need of the ONE (them) outweighs the needs of “everyone else” and they use intimidation, manipulation, threats, and whatever else they can grab hold of, (a big stick?) to get their way.
Captain Kirk constantly defended his ship, and the town of Walnut Grove drove out the bullies, in an awesome scene, where they were grabbed by the scruff of the neck, escorted out of town, and sent back to where they came from (wherever it was.) So then, tell me, are we thinking in terms of how the needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few?
So, can you think of any situations right now, where a small group of people, who have “a right” To take over the nation are getting away with it? In the name of THEIR COMFORT?
Because ultimately, that’s what a bully is. It is someone who doesn’t care how it affects everyone else, so long as they feel better, and they are going to use guilt, threats, manipulation, “I WILL SUE YOU” ……..to get their way. Enough said. -Laura Grace

This past weekend, I was suffering a bit of a storm, as I have many times in the past. This friend of mine told me about a book, after I told her I feel insecure at times, and I began to read it. No, I didn’t write it, and that’s just fine!
I have benefited many times from the words of Authors, who chose to write down their thoughts. Well, this book is about insecurity, and I was shocked to see myself already, in some of it’s pages. I had a busy week, I would say extremely busy, and I had some concerns really weighing on my heart, things people asked me to pray about.
PLEASE do not get me wrong, I am thankful for my abundant life, people who TRUST ME With their prayer requests, friends who want to see me, family who likes to see me too.
I love being a servant of God and I love doing for others, but sometimes I get tired. When I get tired, I don’t think straight. Jesus himself, SON OF GOD, stumbled under the weight of the cross, and needed some help. Profound, isn’t it? I dare say he could have demonstrated supernatural strength to carry it, but he fell under it, as an example to use of how it will be, sometimes.
With that said, when we are tired, the devil often will send emotional storms. I am going to really step out and say this, that I also believe people who deny having emotions, often will have more physical manifestations of the problem. When we are being buffeted, tossed, falsely accused, careless words are spoken, AND they are tired, it’s a bad mix.
OH I used a strange word I know, “Buffet” NOT a buffet like a meal, no ………Anyway, Like my husband said, there are times he wants to go do something, he’s excited about it, and it will start to rain, and the wind blows, and it’s a supernatural INTERUPTION To what he wanted to do…….And there he is, helpless to fulfill his plans.
Yes, it happens. So an emotional storm, I would say, is you are thinking if one more thing happens, I am going to FREAK OUT, and …….one more thing happens, one more thing gets said, one more person poked you with their prickly pear attitude! NOW YOU ARE THE STORM and you forget all about fruits of the Spirit, or being nice, you just want to clobber someone and walk away forever! That’s what storms do, they bring out the worst (or the best) in us sometimes. So, I am not perfect. Some days I see it’s a storm, rebuke it, walk on top of it, soar over it, other times I forget (I am human) and I freak out a little bit. FORGIVE YOURSELF and move on. God does! Who are you not to do the same?
That’s right, forgive yourself, shake off the dust of what happened yesterday….
and go forth! Amen Laura Grace oh PS “forgive them too” who are as human as you!
