Building With God #2 When bad news comes: Fighting in faith, and becoming a son and daughter of God.

Prayer 2.jpg

 
“I shall come forth as Gold” (Job 23:10)
 
He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Psalm 112:7
What do you think (or say) when you hear “bad news?”
A Faith Person does not just stick their head in the sand
They are not “unrealistic.”
They don’t deny what is…….
They just deny it’s right to stay.
If an enemy comes up to you and says “I”m going to beat the stuffing out of you,” You are either going to tremble and prepare yourself for a beating ….Or, you are going to think quickly what you can use for a weapon to fight him off.
Maybe you’ll shout “DAD” “Dad, Dad DADDDY ” Or, kick him in the solar Plexis. You’ll either submit to God and fight (in faith) or you will wave the white flag and accept defeat.
It starts out with a bad report: (Your account is over drawn, you lost your job, your health is at risk) and then it goes to thoughts of “You” being homeless, dead, bankrupt, and broken.)
“You will not be put to Shame,” (Isaiah 54 shouts.)
“You will not be disgraced!” (the Prophet speaks further)
Now you have a choice. Believe that, or believe you are doomed.
In 2 Corinthians 6, after saying light should not agree with darkness, and not to consult with idols, says to not touch what is unclean, nor agree with Unbelievers.
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corn 6:17-18) NKJV
Prior to this, what is unclean is described to us. We are not to agree with idols, or be unequally yoked (with unbelievers). It says: You are the temple (And should not fellowship with darkness, and lawless persons) hmm …..
Something to ponder, and meditate on, right?
Fighting the Faith of Faith, along with you, dear Brethren,
with Love, -Laura Grace

Christmas Story #8 You don’t have to have money to be generous……..

12 days extra extraChristmas story #8 Jesus is real. I testify!

One of my Life changing Scriptures is found in Jude 22 “And on some have compassion, making a distinction. 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.”

If someone comes to me with a problem they are going to get the word of God, Prayer and Jesus! The way I see it, if they don’t want him they aren’t ready for help. And if they won’t receive him I can’t help them either. Now you know. I am radical!

The bible says a generous person will prosper. Now I don’t care so much if it’s financially but I Know it makes our soul prosper. We don’t have to have money to be generous. We can give our time, our love, a cookie, or even a prayer.

I met a guy one time in a housing project, he asked me to pray for him during Christmas time. He was “having such bad thoughts” he said.

After we prayed, he brought me a painting he had painted and said to me “I have to give this to you!” It was a nice painting.

I said why? “Because”, he says, ‘I just know I will feel better if I do.” 
He gave me this gift and as far as I know he was fine after that.

I don’t know why he was compelled to do that, but he was having murderous thoughts and it was scaring him. When He told me, it kind of scared me also. 

I just said “LET”S PRAY!” I know who the counsellor is. His name is Jesus! 
You don’t need a minister license to represent Jesus. All you need, is faith If you don’t have any start today praying on little things, and read your bible!

Oh I forgot to tell you why he asked me for prayer! Everywhere I go I talk about Jesus. I don’t even remember how it came up, but as people oten tell me, Nobody can be around you long without Jesus coming up! (Good!) 

I either drive them crazy or they ask me questions OR they run away! Why would we not tell the reason we are okay in this world? If hearing about Jesus drives them crazy, they are not ready for him. Yet. 

Jesus is still the answer! so get your brave shoes on and next time someone has a problem, offer to pray with them. And if you need help. Ask me for prayer! I will be happy to pray for you and I won’t judge you. Jesus is not some picture on the wall to me or someone I was ‘told about” He is REAL! And he loves you!  and thank you those who pray when I ask (You know who you are!) and I love you very much.

With Love,

Laura Grace

My Mission Trip. To some people that matter to Jesus……….by Laura Grace

            This past July I was led to schedule a mission trip. It was 5 days long. 
I made brochures and anointed them sent them to 65 churches. Got ONE reply but no speaking engagement I was ready too. I even called them as a follow up. I heard “We don’t let women preach” Or “we’ll get back to you” …..I felt so led to go. I was going to talk about getting God out of the box and spirtual pioneers. Anyway so Then the money for the trip evaporated and I said,  “God if this mission trip was you you’lll provide for it!
He did. …..a new person I just met gave me 500.00. 
He prayed. encouraged me. One stop God told me to make was in Missoula MT- a place called the Poverello center. When I (we Tim was with me) walked in there I saw nobody but a clerk behind a desk. God told me to grab the dollar bills in my car caddy and pass them out and say “I love them” so I did there were 17 dollar bills. When I saw no one I started to leave I saw no homeless no people so …..He said “Go back” so I went back- and saw a hallway. when I came around that corner I saw it led to a kitchen and there wre people with backpacks and things who just ate. (soup kitchen) 
I started passing out dollar bills saying God loves you and looking them straight in the eye as I did it. “thank you” “God bless you too” …..I got to the last people in a group (3) and gave them the dollars but they were different. One said “if you only knew our situation no place to live no car…..” 
I felt led to witness to them. I told them my story of how I used to live in Missoula. How broke I was car always breaking down….had faced homelessness……and tears running down my face said “It’s not about church it’s about Jesus’ give him your heart he will take care of you” …….He loves you” 
The gal saw had my book in my hand Grace to the Rescue it was what I used to hold the dollar bills she asked what is that? “My book” I gave it to her. they let me pray with them. 
It wasn’t until I waved and left the room that I realized I had passed out every dollar bill, everyone got one…….and there were none left. 
Only God could have done that. He planned it. Orchestrated it. 
The rest of the trip I prayed with who God led me to pray for. People who owned a store that was closing a little girl forced to play nanny for her aunt who seemed Messed up on drugs or something…
It was a remarkable trip. And the moral of the story is:
GO where God tells you to go! And forget the fanfare. 
Someone out there needs to hear “God loves them” ……you know? Laura Grace
