PEACE AND PATIENCE

        Peace and patience, are two main attributes we all need at all times.  It is almost impossible to successfully obtain one without the other, they go together like hand and glove.  There is no doubt that at one time or another, you have experienced instances in your life where you felt overwhelmed and emotionally upset, about something or someone.   During those times you might have become so frustrated, depressed, confused, agonized and devastated, you found yourself thinking: “This is just to much, I don’t feel that I can take it any longer.”

    The pressure from what you are dealing with, may be so strong, that you find yourself “struggling” with doubt about God.  You fight that feeling because you know in your heart that “God Is Real”, and he wants only the best for you.  Although, you know this in your heart and mind, the evil spirits are working hard to keep pushing that doubt forward.  They are doing their job, trying to accelerate those negative thoughts to the point of your destruction.  Remember, the job of the evil one is to deceive kill and destroy, there is no in between.

     The enemy “the devil” wants you to give up , doubt and quit believing and trusting God.  The lack of peace and patience, ( no inner peace ) can drive you to the point where the anguish and turmoil you’re feeling causes you to think: “This is never going to end. How can things get any worse than it is right now?  I want you to know, that everything that has been previously stated, is understandable, but so unnecessary.

     The reason it’s said to be unnecessary is because, we as Christians who believe in Jesus Christ, HAVE A WAY OUT OF ALL OF THIS!  When you are facing these kind of troubles STOP!  find a quiet place, remind yourself this is not God causing your life to be in this terrible situation.  THAT’S NOT HOW GOD WORKS, THAT IS SATAN AND HIS DEMONS WORKING.  Sit still for a while and REMIND YOURSELF that you are a Christian, and we Christians live by the words of “Almighty God” and no other.

     Tell yourself, “I know God loves me and he is waiting for me to come to him and use his words ( which he has given me to use against the enemy as a sword ) which is my WEAPON.  Meditate on what God’s words in the bible says you should do at times like these.  TRUST GOD AND HIS WORDS, THEY HAVE POWER. Use them, speak them aloud, so the evil spirits can hear them. You must remember, this is a SPIRITUAL WAR THAT WILL NEVER END.  It is invisible to the Human eye, but the effects from it proves it’s existence. 

      The scriptures in the bible are not there just to fill up pages, they were inspired by God and were written and put there as a guide, to help us throughout our lives. if you have to repeat verses over and over, that’s alright, your part is easy all you have to do is BELIEVE AND DO IT. Soon after ,you will start to feel relief and “Peace” will gradually start flowing in, moving that “Inflammation Of Evil out.”  It will be like healing medicine prescribed just for you.  This is where PATIENCE comes forward.  I won’t tell you everything will clear up in an instant, but God is Almighty, all things happen in his time” Not Ours.” 

      {Acts 1: 7 } And he said unto them, it is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in HIS OWN POWER, but you  shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost has come upon you.

     LET US LOOK AT A FEW VERSES FROM THE BIBLE, THAT ARE  HELPFUL FOR PEACE AND PATIENCE: GOD’S WORDS, YOUR WEAPONS TO FIGHT EVIL WHEN AND WHERE EVER IT ATTACKS.

{ ST John 14: 27 }  From the King James Bible:

Peace” I leave with you, my “peace” I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you.  “LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.”

{ Isaiah 26: 3- 4 }

    Thou will keep him in perfect “peace”, whose mind stays on the Lord, because he trust in the Lord.  Trust in the Lord forever; for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.

{ Philippians 4: 6-9 )

     Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your request be made known unto GodAnd the “Peace” of God which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 

     Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK ON THESE THINGS.

{ Hebrews 12: 1- 2 } From the Good News Bible, Today’s Version:

      As for us, we have this large crowd of witnesses around us so then, let us rid ourselves of everything that gets in the way, and of the sin which holds onto us so tightly, and let us run with determination and “PATIENCE” the race that lies before us.  LET US KEEP OUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS, on whom our faith depends FROM BEGINNING TO END.

{ Romans 5: 3- 4 }

      We glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation works “Patience;” and “Patience,” experience; and experience hope.

      ALWAYS DWELL ON THE WORDS OF GOD IN EVERY SITUATION, THE POWER OF GOD’S WORDS WILL “BREAK DOWN ANY WALL OF EVIL THAT TRIES TO STAND IN YOUR WAY.”  ( THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WILL HAVE TO CONTINUE TO PRACTICE DAILY,) THE DEVIL WILL LEAVE, BUT HE WILL RETURN EVENTUALLY, SO STAY PREPARED. ALWAYS REMEMBER, “PRACTICE MAKES YOU SUCCESSFUL.”  GOD BLESS YOU.

SOME UPLIFTING SCRIPTURES TO HELP YOU

     If you are feeling :  Discouraged- Depressed- Anxious or worried-Disappointed – Let Down, The following scriptures will help you. { From the Good News Bible, Today’s English Version :}

A PRAYER FOR CONFIDENCE  { Psalms 16: – 11 }

Protect me, O God; I trust in you for safety.  I say to the Lord; you are my Lord; all the good things I have come from you.  How excellent are the Lord’s faithful people!  My greatest pleasure is to be with them.  You Lord are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands.  How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are! 

     I praise the Lord, because he guides me.  I am always aware of the Lord’s presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me.  I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure, because you protect me from the power of death. I have served you faithfully, and you will not abandon me to the power of the dead.   You will show me the path that leads to life; your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.

IN PRAISE OF GOD’S GOODNESS { Psalms 34: 1-22 }

I will always thank the Lord; I will never stop praising him.  I will praise him for what he has done; may all who are oppressed listen and be glad!  Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness; let us praise his name together!  I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me; he freed me from all my fears.  The oppressed look to him and are glad; they will never be disappointed.  The helpless call to him, and he answers; HE SAVES THEM FROM ALL THEIR TROUBLES.

His angel guards those who honor the Lord and “Recues Them From Danger.”  Find out for yourself how good the Lord is.  Happy are those who find safety with him.  Honor the Lord, all his people; Those Who Obey Him, Have ALL They Need.  Even lions go hungry for lack of food, BUT THOSE WHO OBEY THE LORD LACK NOTHING GOOD.  Come my friends, and listen to me and I will teach you to honor the Lord. 

Would you like to enjoy life?  Do you want long life and happiness?  Then keep from speaking evil and telling lies.  Turn away from evil and do good; strive for peace with all your heart.  “THE LORD WATCHES OVER THE RIGHTEOUS” and listens to their cries; but he opposes those who do evil, so when they die, they are soon forgotten.  The righteous calls to the Lord, and he listens; he rescues them from all their troubles. 

The Lord is near to those who are discouraged; HE SAVES THOSE WHO HAVE LOST ALL HOPE.  Good people suffer many troubles, but the Lord saves them from them all; the Lord preserves them completely; not one of their bones will be broken.  Evil will kill the wicked; those who hate the righteous will be punished.  THE LORD WILL SAVE HIS PEOPLE; those who go to him for protection will be spared.

A PRAYER FOR GUIDANCE AND PROTECTION { Psalm 25:1- 7 :}

To you, O Lord I offer my prayer; in you my God I Trust.  Save me from the shame of defeat; don’t let my enemies gloat over me!  DEFEAT DOES NOT COME TO THOSE WHO TRUST IN THE LORD, but it comes to those who are quick to rebel against the Lord.  Teach me your ways, O Lord; make them known to me.  Teach me to live according to your truth, for you are my God who saves me.  ” I will always trust in you.” 

     Remember, O Lord, your kindness and constant love which you have shown from long ago.  Forgive the sins and the errors of my youth.  In your constant love and goodness remember me Lord, because the Lord is righteous and good, he teaches sinners the path they should follow.

A PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING  { PSALM 30: 1- 7-11-12 :}

I praise you Lord, because you have saved me and kept my enemies from gloating over me.  I cried to you for help, O Lord my God, and you healed me; you kept me from the grave.  I was on my way to the depths below, but you restored my life.  Sing praise to the Lord, all his faithful people!  Remember what the Holy One has done, and GIVE HIM THANKS.  His anger last only a moment, his goodness for life time.  “TEARS MAY FLOW IN THE NIGHT, BUT JOY COMES IN THE MORNING”.

I felt secure and said to myself, “I will never be defeated.” You were good to me Lord, you protected me Like A Mountain Fortress.  Hear me Lord and be merciful, help me Lord. 

You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance; you have taken away my sorrow and surrounded me with joy.  Therefore, I will not be silent; I will sing praise to you.  Lord you are my God, “I WILL GIVE YOU THANKS FOREVER ” Amen.

     I sincerely hope that, if you are dealing with any undesirable issues at this time, not only the ones listed at the beginning of this article.  Also, if you’re not, still take to heart the words of the Lord who Loves you and knows your needs even before you come to him.  God wants you to  { ”cast your cares on him” } and leave them there.  Practice saying what God’s words tell you to say and meditate on, not just anything that pops into your head.  GOD WANTS YOU TO LET GO AND LET HIM. 

During these times in the world, things can be difficult often, but God is your refuge, your way out.  Although, at times you may feel you can hardly make it, don’t dwell on that.  That is the devil’s way of “playing tricks on your mind.”  Remember the devil is a “Trickster Of The Mind” he wants to steal your joy, don’t let him do it.  Remember, “the joy of the Lord is your strength” STAY STRONG, TRUST GOD AND BE BLESSED.

” DON’T GET HUNG BY YOUR TONGUE “

BEWARE!  do not get “Hung By Your Tongue.”  Watch what you say about yourself, your situation, others and all things.  Did you know, or do  you need to be reminded, that your “tongue” that small organ in your mouth can destroy or build up, many things in your life?  However, we are truly blessed, God has given us the { power to control our tongues.}  Being a Christian means, we cannot just say anything we want, we have guide lines to follow, we must use God’s words in the bible so that we can select the correct choice of words, when we are speaking about anything and everything. 

We follow by, speaking and meditating on God’s words.  It is MANDATORY, specifically concerning negative things.  If you do not , then you should know, you will suffer the consequences there of.  It’s not that you won’t get what you pray and ask God for, but this way the devil can’t get into your head causing you to doubt, get confused or be tormented while you wait for God to answer your prayer.

 ” GODLY THINKING AND SPEAKING” you should practice daily, the words from the bible are always positive and they have POWER.  God’s “Holy Spirit” will guide you in the path of righteousness and ” His Guardian Angels”, will be with you to keep you safe.  Have Faith in them, just trust God.  

 

What you say and do “Spiritually” is somewhat like a Farmer who sows seeds to grow crops in order to reap a harvest.  If he sows corn, it is obvious that with the proper nourishment, he will get corn plants, soon to be corn stalks producing ears of corn.  If the Farmer sows peas, with proper nourishment he will get pea plants, soon to be bushes filled with peas.  The planter/ Farmer, will benefit from both as food for his family when harvest time comes. 

     The words of God benefit us in that same sort of fashion, when we use them and nourish them daily.  We don’t have to worry, because God’s words will never fail, his words will not turn out to be a lie.  { To read more about the:” Parable Of The Sower” go to:  Matthew : 13- 1- 23;  Mark : 4 – 1- 20- 26- 29 .}

 

When you speak negative things about yourself or someone else, evil spirits are listening and magnifying your words so that you get just what you say.  But if you speak good, spiritual words about a situation or someone, The Holy Spirit and God’s Angels will hear you and they will start working in your favor:  { They respond only to God’s words .}  the devil and his demons will have to Flee. 

 

For example:  You might say “ I need financial help urgently, but I have no idea where I’m going to get it from.”

      First take it to God in prayer in Jesus name, then show that you trust him by thinking and speaking Gods words below from that point on,” do not doubt” ,until your supply or your answer comes.

      God’s word says, { Philippians 4: 19 } you say: ” But my God shall supply all my need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” 

If you or someone you know are sick, use the same process as above.  Find a bible verse related to being healed such as: { James 5: 14- 15 } 

Is any sick among you?  let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up.

These are examples I just gave you, as you know, there are many other verses to choose from in the bible.  You might want to check the Concordance or the bible index for what you need help with.

     This is what the bible says about the tongue { Psalm 34: 12-13-14-15 }  Would you like to enjoy life?  Do you want long life and happiness?  Then keep from speaking evil and from telling lies.  turn away from evil and do good; strive for peace with all your heart.  The Lord watches over the righteous and listens to their cries.

{ Psalm: 12 } MORE ABOUT THE TONGUE, The Good News Bible:

Help us Lord!  There is not a good person left; honest people can no longer be found.  All of them lie to one another; they deceive each other with flattery.  Silence those flattering “tongues”, O Lord!  Close those boastful mouths that say, “with our words we get what we want.  we will say what we wish, and no one can stop us.”  But now I will come, says the Lord, because the needy are oppressed and the persecuted groan in pain.

I will give them the security they long for.  The promises of the Lord can be trusted; they are as genuine as silver refined seven times in the furnace.  The wicked are everywhere, and everyone praises what is evil.  Keep us always safe, O Lord and preserve us from much people Amen.

ALWAYS SPEAK AND TRUST GOD’S WORDS, DON’T GET “HUNG BY YOUR TONGUE”  GOD BLESS YOU.

Fear No Evil, The Lord Is With You

     The words of God tell us, that we should “NOT” fear evil.  This is    largely expressed in the 23rd Psalm.  In { Psalm 23: 4 } the bible gives us these words to focus on and live by:  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear “no evil” for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 

The following version of the 23rd Psalm is from the Good News Bible, Today’s English Version:

The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need.  He lets me rest in fields of green grass, and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water.

He gives me new strength.  He guides me in the right paths, as he has promised.  Even if I go through the deepest darkness, I will not be afraid, Lord, for you are with me.  Your shepherd’s rod and staff protect me.

You prepare a banquet for me, where all my enemies can see me; you welcome me as an honored guest and fill my cup to the brim.  I know that your goodness and love will be with me all my life; and your house will be my home as long as I live Amen.

The bible also gives us another way of viewing fear: { Psalms 2: 11 ) “Serve the Lord with fear, tremble and bow down to him.”

{ Proverbs 10: 27- 28 } “The fear of the Lord” lengthens your days, but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.  The hope of the righteous shall be gladness, but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.  The way of the Lord is strength to the upright; but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. 

    You can probably determine from the verses previously given, that there is another way to look at fear.  So that you will not be confused about “fear not”, but “fear God”.  For the lack of a better way of explaining this: Some people might say there are two ways to look at fear, a good fear and a bad fear.  The good fear, would be the fear of the Lord which is, being alert and always aware that we are living according to God’s words and commands. 

      With the other fear, you must never fear “Man or evil”.  Remember,   when you live by God’s words and commands, you are protected by God also God is Love.  Therefore, the spirit of fear should not exist in you.  You can train yourselves to focus on the example, Jesus gave us when he lived on this earth and you can have the mind of Christ, then you  ”WOULD NOT AND SHOULD NOT FEAR”. 

     Let’s put it this way, the fear of man is the way of the wicked.  The fear of God , is the way of the righteous. { Deuteronomy 4: 9-10 } reads:  Only take heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life.  You should teach them to your sons, and your sons’ sons.  Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to “Fear My Words,” that they may learn to “Fear Me, all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.”

One of my favorite scriptures in the bible regarding fear is: { Psalm 37} “Fret not thyself because of evil doers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.” That is the, “King James Bible Version.” 

    I want to give you a few verses from the “Good News Today’s English Bible Version.”  { Psalm: 37 }:

Don’t be worried on account of the wicked, don’t be jealous of those who do wrong.  They will soon disappear like grass that dries up; they will die like plants that wither.  Trust in the Lord and do good; live in the land and be safe.  Seek your happiness in the Lord and he will give you your heart’s desire.  Give yourself to the Lord; trust in him, and he will help you;  He will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun. 

Be patient and wait for the Lord to act; don’t be worried about those who prosper, or those who succeed in their evil plans.  Don’t give in to worry or anger; it only leads to trouble.  Those who trust in the Lord will possess the land, but the wicked will be driven out.  Soon the wicked will disappear; you may look for them, but you won’t find them; but the “humble” will possess the land and enjoy prosperity and peace.  The wicked plot against good people and glare at them with hate, but the Lord laughs at wicked people, because he knows they will soon be destroyed.

The wicked draw their swords and bend their bows to kill the poor and needy, to slaughter those who do “what is right;” but they will be killed by their own swords, and their bows will be smashed.  The little that a good person owns is worth more than the wealth of all the wicked, because the Lord will take away the strength of the wicked, but protect those who are good. 

The Lord takes care of those who obey him, and the land will be theirs forever.  They will not suffer when times are bad; they will have enough in times of famine, but the wicked will die.  The enemies of the Lord will vanish like wild flowers; they will disappear like smoke.  The wicked borrow and never pay back, but good people are generous with their gifts.  Those who are blessed by the Lord will possess the land, but those who are cursed by him will be driven out.  The Lord guides us in the ways we should go and protect those who please him.

If they fall, they will not stay down, because the Lord will help them up.  I am old now; I have lived a long time, but I have never seen good people abandoned by the Lord, or their children begging for food.  At all times they give freely and their children are a blessing.  Turn away from evil and do good, and your descendants will always live in the land; for the Lord loves what is right and does not abandon his faithful people.  He protects them forever.

 THERE IS NO” FEAR” IN LOVE; BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT “FEAR”, BECAUSE “FEAR” HAS TORMENT . { 1st John 4: 18. } WITH GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT DWELLING IN YOU,  YOU SHOULD “FEAR NOT BECAUSE THE LORD IS WITH YOU ALWAYS.”

HOPE: DO NOT LOSE HOPE

There are times when we all hope for something, we may have a confidential wish, an expectation, or desire.  We hope for a better future,  peace of mind, marriage, money, a good relationship, healing, happiness.  This list can go on and on, whatever the desire might be.  HOPE, ” IS A GOOD THING.”  What would life be like without Hope in our hearts and minds?  Hope is a good spirit, that is compared to Love, Peace and Joy.

During this season of the year “Christmas time” December 25th, the day that has been chosen by “Man” and set aside specifically for the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Speaking of this time of year, we can learn a big lesson about Hope from young children, and many adults also.  I say young children mainly because most of them are “free spirits.”  They don’t have the obligations of dealing directly with the sometimes, so called “HOPE DESTROYERS “  ( my definition ) that parents and adults have to deal with such as, mortgage payments, rent, utility bills, food, clothes, the children themselves and more. 

     Therefore, children have more time to focus on “fun things,” things they feel will make them happy and brighten up their lives a little more, even if it doesn’t last but for a short while.  Although, loving parents want to give their child / children, all that they are hoping for, many times certain situations or circumstances may not allow them to do so. 

Our Almighty Father in heaven, may not give us everything we hope, ask, or even pray for,That is because, Our God ( Jehovah Jireh- meaning: The Lord provides { Genesis 22: 14 } wants the best for us and he knows, many times we ask for things we don’t understand, but he knows they are things we don’t need.  In { Matthew 6: 8 } The bible tells us, “Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things we have need of, before we ask him.

Many of us have experienced at least once in our lives, we actually got something we were hoping for then, later on it started to be a problem and we found ourselves thinking “I wish I had never gotten this, I’m not happy with it anymore.”  All that has been said previously, can be summed up like this:  We should have Hopes, it is good to have something positive to look forward to in this world. 

You can also have dreams, as long as they are kept within the realm of reality and in line with God’s promises.  Also, at the same time you should keep in your mind, that if your hopes or your dreams don’t work out the way you expect, “ YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE.” If that happens, go to God in prayer, ask him to help you “Accept the things you cannot change” to guide you to the next best thing.  Follow the words of Jesus, spoken by him to the Father before his crucifixion { ”Father, if this cup cannot be taken away from me then, “not my will, but your will be done.” }

DON’T GIVE UP

Here are some verses to meditate on and learn what God’s words say about hope:

{ Lamentations 3: 26}  It is good that a man should both “hope” and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.

{ Ephesians 2: 12 }  At that time you were apart from God. You were foreigners and did not belong to God’s chosen people. you had no part in the covenants, which were based on God’s promises to his people, and you lived in this world without ”hope” and without God.

{ Psalms 39: 7 }  What then, can I “hope” for Lord?  I put my ”hope” in you.

{ Titus 2:13 }   Looking for that blessed “hope,” and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.

{ Hebrews 6: 19 }   We have this “hope” as an anchor for our lives. It is safe and sure, and goes through the curtain of the heavenly temple into the inner sanctuary.

“KEEP HOPE ALIVE.”  NEVER GIVE UP ON WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FUTURE.  CONTINUE MOVING FORWARD WITH GOD’S PROMISES AS YOUR GUIDE. YOU HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE AHEAD.  GOD BLESS YOU.

JOY : IS YOUR STRENGTH

THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH ” { Nehemiah 8: 10 }       Many People are carrying burdens, seemingly more in these recent   years than in past years. Some might say it’s the state of the economy, a loss of jobs, no shelter, food, foreclosures, The Government, the  death of a loved one, family member, or a friend, pet and many more issues that could be named.  Some burdens may be heavy and some may be light nevertheless, they are hard for us Human Beings to handle on our own.  Although, these “burdensome challenges” are real, and are  problems that we have to deal with.

    We need to know that these burdens are also { ”Spiritual and emotional Blockades “}, put there by guess who?  yes, Satan The Devil himself.  This is another one of the tools he uses against Christians. The reason for that is, the enemy “Satan” wants Gods people to suffer, go insane, or die, he knows we have a more peaceful way of dealing with all things, but he doesn’t want us to realize it, he wants us to stay in the” dark” having no knowledge of the real truth from God.  He knows, ”IF” you use the guidance and promises that God has given us to follow, we will overcome all burdens.  Again this brings us to God’s words, and the power that lies within them.

    When we use Gods words with joy as God has told us to, we will automatically ”kick those demons out of our lives” and gain the Peace Of Mind God intended for us to have from the start, soon all burdens, troubles, trials, etc., will ease away.  It is very important that we stay “ALERT at all times”, be aware of what is happening with us, and around us.  We need to know what God’s words in the bible is guiding us to do with all things, at, all times, AND JUST DO IT, no matter how difficult it may seem.  With God nothing is to hard, he knows how much we can bear.

     For Christians, this is the biblical formula we should always remember, no matter what the circumstance or situation is that we’re facing:  ( 1 )  What does God’s Promise say for us to do?  ( 2 )  Practice, by putting it into action, use it in your daily lives.  ( 3 )  Have Faith and Praise God for lifting your burdens away, even if they are still there, maintain endurance and stay strong.  (4) Rejoice with complete PEACE OF MIND which is and will be the final result / your reward. God’s precious freedom and happiness.  It is important that we remind ourselves, of this “four stage formula” every time we think we need it and simply USE IT.  Write God’s promise on paper if you need to, keep it near by, log it in your memory.

You might say to yourself, how can I feel JOY, with everything that’s going on in my life or your loved ones lives?  When I get some of this pressure I’m feeling off of me then, I might be able to feel some joy, I will be more open minded after this is over, but right now I just can’t feel it.  The fact is, that until you allow yourself to have the ” JOY AND SPIRITUAL HAPPINESS” on the inside, or at least DECLARING THE VICTORY while the burden is still in process , calling it to be so ,even if it’s not so, that it may become so, using your FAITH.

The devil wants to keep you” mentally and spiritually paralyzed”, so you won’t try to “REJOICE IN THE LORD” to keep you thinking there is no relief from what is bothering you.  Listen to what God says about JOY.

 HERE ARE SOME VERSES { formula’s} GOD’S WORDS GIVE US, ABOUT JOY,  KNOWN AS GOD’S PROMISES:  God’s promises will never change, they will remain the same forever.

{ Psalms 126: 5 }– You may Sow in tears, but you shall reap in Joy.

{ Romans 15: 13 }– God will Fill you with all joy and peace.

{ Psalms 35: 9 }– My soul shall be joyful in the lord.

{ Psalms 63: 5 }– I will praise thee with joyful lips.

{ Galatians 5: 22 }– The fruit of the spirit is love and joy.

{ 1 Peter 4: 13 }– Be glad with exceeding joy.

{ 2 Corinthians 7: 4 }– Be exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation.

{ Nehemiah 8: 10 }– The joy of the Lord is your strength.

{ James 1: 2 }– Count it all joy when all kinds of trials come your way, for you know that when your faith succeeds in facing such trials, the result is the ability to endure. Make sure that your endurance carries you all the way without failing, so that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing.

FOR CHRISTIANS, REMEMBER ALWAYS: YOUR JOY IN THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH AND ONE OF OUR MOST POWERFUL WEAPONS AGAINST EVIL.  IT IS A BURDEN REMOVING JOKE DESTROYER!!!  THERE IS A SAYING THAT GOES LIKE THIS:  { “NEVER LET THEM SEE YOU SWEAT”.}

“KNOW THE LORD AND LIVE BY HIS WORDS” GOD BLESS YOU.

                             DEDICATION TO MORA

The Mora’s Angel’s Charity Project, { MORA’S ANGELS } is a “non profit” entity, that is DEDICATED to ,and named for my “Late Sister { Miss Mora Denise Tunsil } who I love and miss very much. To family and friends, she was called, Denise or “Necy”. Mora, was a Special human being, who deserves to be remembered in a special way, not only because she was my Sister but, also because she had a heart of gold.  The life she lived, in spirit, and  in reality was like the quality of fine gold also.  Mora’s easy going personality, the humorous things she would say sometimes, made her even more lovable and unforgettable.

Mora collected Angels, she had a moderately large collection of them that she keep on a particular “gold brass” wall unit, with glass shelves in the living room.  ”Necy”, took pleasure in showing them to everyone that  was interested.  Her face would light up, with a big smile, that anyone could see how proud she was of her “Angel Collection.  The Angels were all different sizes, colors and shapes, some with large wide wings, and  lighted ones.  Others, were holding a replica of the “Baby Jesus” in there arms, their wings would close around “baby Jesus, as if they were keeping him safe from harm.  That is a sample of the kind of love Mora had in her heart, not just for her Angels but, also for people as well.

 To her, love, generosity, honesty, sincerity, etc., and her love for God, was natural, it also is her legacy.  After her passing, she left these words for all who would receive it : “KNOW THE LORD AND LIVE BY HIS WORDS”, I took that seriously and I try to do that everyday.  living by God’s words, going the extra mile to make others happy, was a part of everyday life for “Necy”. 

Creating this Charity project in her name, is my way of keeping her loving spirit alive, and others like her although, I don’t know the others, and will never know them. {  I make this statement to all of you about your loved ones, “what a joy it is, that we were blessed to have had them in our lives for the time God allowed them to be with us, and to have had the pleasure of knowing them, their memories will be cherished lovingly forever. }

This Charity is being established to help other “ already established organizations” with their efforts in helping people in need, not only in this country but, Internationally.  The reason for installing this unit into the ministry, is to be a blessing to people in any way we can.  If it is a natural disaster, homelessness, sickness, financial, food, water, shelter etc., we want to help.  There are so many groups and organizations that contact many of us, and ask for help but, I’m sure you as well as I, want to help and we feel their pain but, most times we have to say “I’m sorry I can’t help at this time”, because we are in need of help ourselves.

That is why, this portion of the ministry is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY.  I am researching to establish ways to help my readers that are in serious need, whether you have been able to give or not.  People are truly hurting in less fortunate regions of the world, but I realize that many here in the USA desperately need help also, and I WANT TO HELP EVERYONE I CAN. 

After this Charity has been completely established and is functioning successfully, instructions will be given to people ”in need” on what steps to take to make request ,and get help. As you probably already know, any donated help will have to be done on a percentage basis.  Thank you for listening, and thank you in advance for your help and participation.

Below is a list of some already established Charities that we want to give a percentage of whatever we obtain here at this Ministry, hopefully on a regular or monthly basis.  If there is a charity, Organization, etc., you would like to be considered, please specify them in our comment section, and leave “info” on how we can contact them.

     My vision, is to help as many people as possible.  I want to always tell you the truth, especially with this ministry.  I will tell you that, we here at this ministry do need financial help ourselves, which would only be a percentage for us as well.  The reason is:  It takes most of my time to continue building this site, to keep inputting material that will benefit you and your loved ones, I am retired and it is my pleasure to share my God given knowledge and experiences with you.  The time, research, meditation and work it takes to give you my best, which is my Strong Desire, unfortunately doesn’t leave much time to do anything else.

 I would like it if you would join me in making this Ministry, a Ministry Of Hope, Help, Healing, A source of “AID” be it large or small to everyone, no matter who they are or where they live.  This is my “DREAM” I hope you can make it your dream as well.

At this point “TUNSIL MINISTRIES” is still a work in progress, much, much more is coming in the near future { web design etc., a lot more articles, a variety of different kinds of information to help you in your lives, a special section to honor our “Veterans and Men At War”.}   I’m sure you will be pleased with what I’m going to be doing here, feel free   to make any suggestions, as well as comments in the comment section or send an email message to: www.tunsilministries@gmail.com.  Thank You so very much, I’m looking forward to working with you, “GOD BLESS YOU”.
