Fasting Prayer Change

So tomorrow (Wednesday) I will be fasting as usual. All of you who love God and obey Him, please pray with me and fast if at all possible. I know some cannot, but those who can, please do.

I usually post the prayers I will be praying so we are one in our prayers. I want to change things a bit. The world seems to be incredibly out of sync right now and rather chaotic. It feels different to me. And I want us to pray a different prayer for the day. I want us to pray along these lines…

Dear Heavenly Father, there is a chaotic spirit and principalities in the world right now all over the world. We are praying to you against this. We are fasting (if possible) and praying (everyone) for You, Holy Father, to come against these principalities and spirits of chaos in our countries all over the world. Those who are doing good and spreading the truth are being attacked openly right now. We pray for their protection. We pray that those attacking them and those full of lies and greed to be seen as such. I pray those operating in evil to be found out and punished and them to change their hearts to see their need for salvation. You want everyone to be saved. So I pray that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven and that Your name will be praised in all the earth. Please draw us close and deepen our relationship with You. Please change and soften our hearts to forgive and love people and see them as you do. Heal those sick, especially those spiritually sick. And bless our good leaders and keep them good and punish the evil leaders and change them to good. And we believe You love us, will help us and have already answered this prayer. And I praise You, perfect Lord, for You are never surprised, all powerful and so very good! Love you so much, Daddy! In Jesus’ glorious name, Amen.

Thank you so much for honoring the Lord in this way and praise be to God!!😄❤❤❤

Changes in Health and Beauty

I had lost 50 pounds. I did this without exercising, just via the Paleo nutrition lifestyle. And I don’t believe I am made for that long-term because I woke up regularly with Charlie horses and always had foggy thinking and was slow with problem solving. Sure, I was on target with my “ideal weight” but felt lows about myself.

So I threw away that option and have stuck with the health and freshness of it but added some carbs (healthy ones mostly) and most importantly exercise every day, walking fast and even some jogging between 2-4 miles a day with the kids. We are all three healthier and stronger and I feel good again and strong and healthy. And I have yet to experience a Charlie horse again or cloudy thinking. So, sometimes you have to modify. Yes, I have gained 30 pounds, the scales tell me, but my clothes still fit beautifully and comfortably and I have muscle definition.

So don’t always care so much about the numbers or some unknown person’s thought of what you should be. Be the healthiest person you can and do so for God and His kingdom and glory, woking with Him on the heart and mind. That is what makes beauty. ❤

Old Enough to Know

I am old enough to know that I could be a grandma now and yet I am a momma to a 9 year old.

I am old enough to know that even if I live to be an old age of 80, she will be in her 40’s when she experiences the loss of me. And if the Lord takes me sooner, she will be all the younger.

So I am old enough to know that I need to prepare her to rely on God for comfort and herself for taking care of herself with God.

I am old enough to know that my greatest gift and provision possible for my children is to exemplify and teach and train them to draw close to God and have that relationship with the perfect Heavenly Father who loves them even more than I can.

I am old enough to know that now matters and eternity matters. So I will love my children by teaching and showing them a beautiful relationship with Christ and I will have done the best I possibly can for them and also for God.😄❤

Walking a Tightrope

When we feel like we are walking a Tightrope through life, we miss the point. When trying to wrestle with making the masses happy, balancing time with our kids and spouse, figure out how much time our work should take and then a complexity added of how spiritual to be and when and how to do right and not wrong and when to say what and when to not talk, the tightrope under our feet gets skinnier and the distance beneath us is greater to fall.

And people fall from it all the time. People, sadly, believe that is all there is and lose hope and fall. And that is the saddest thing ever because they have clearly missed the point. And maybe that is why we weird big picture people exist, to remind you of the big picture.

Sure, we are weird. I own that and have never cared what people thought of me because of the big picture thing. Yes, I miss a lot of the details so I miss a lot, but here is the thing. I am good at at least one thing, seeing and showing the big picture. And here it is. This is huge and if you grasp it, your tightrope will suddenly turn into a wide bridge over a trench.

Accepting Jesus Christ as Savior is all about grace and putting God first.

If you really embrace that, your life will instantly be brighter and load lighter. Guilt loads will dump off to God’s forgiveness. Loneliness will disappear because God comforts and fills you up with thr Holy Spirit, a constant companion with warm arms and power when needs be. And balancing everything becomes easy as He gives abundant wisdom when we put Him first. And reading thr Bible and praying keeps our connection to God strong and bonds the relationship so peace and joy is forever right there no matter what.

No need to walk a tightrope, just need to see the big picture and embrace it. Then wow, that grace takes over and perfection is no longer required, just devotion. Wow! Freedom! Hope!😄❤

Thr Opposite of Fear is Faith

When our fear is ramped, our eyes are on us, guaranteed. When our faith in God is ramped, our humble focus is on God, guaranteed. You cannot operate deep in faith in God and still be unable to function due to fear. It is impossible. Faith and focus on God is love and that drives fear away. There is no room for fear when you are operating in faith in God. It is impossible and you are not being truthful if you say otherwise. And we cannot overcome a lie with another lie, we must call it as it is and then we can fix it with humble faith and focus on God and be set free from fear. Knowing and admitting is half the battle. The second half is deciding to trust (act out your faith in) God and focus on Him.❤

Peace Amidst Chaos

I long for home, meaning heaven or back on a farm in Michigan. You could get away to work alone on the farm, be in a sort of solitary enjoyment and working the land God made. I love and miss that quiet that never happens in a big city suburb in the third most populated state in the US, Florida. If you live busy, fun, crowded beaches, theme parks, sun every day, beautiful tropical plants all over year round, this is the place to come. If you want to be alone and still and quiet, enjoying nature, you would have as much trouble ad I am. I love people, just not so many so close. Especially when driving.

However, God has helped me be internally at peace amidst this perpetual chaos. He has trained me to listen to Him and I can do that now even when it is busy, busy, busy. And this has been a great learning experience and I no longer want to shoot out people’s tires and I am much more calm when they take my parking spot. I am certain the peace of God has kept me out of jail, come to think of it. And, in all seriousness, I know it has made me a better person in every way. Yes, I still want heaven or a farm in thr middle of nowhere, but I will take peace inside as a beautiful way of life and a tool to still have peace in chaos.😄❤

Fasting Prayers

I will be praying and fasting today (Wednesday). I implore any of you friends who really love the Lord to join me. And if you cannot fast for some reason, please pray with me during meal times. So we are on the same page, my prayers will be:

1. Please purify my soul and my family’s soul and wash us clean by the blood of the Lamb Jesus Christ. Please forgive our sins and renew our strength and purity with the Holy Spirit so we may be in your presence and pray and fast today.

2. The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6), with emphasis on “Please, dear Lord, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

3. Please may Your prayer warriors be strengthened and focused to pray and fast for your good to triumph over the enemies’ evil.

4. Please protect and strengthen our President Trump and all those officials doing good and please give them wisdom, knowledge, understanding and favor with You and man. May those who have done evil be caught and prosecuted and be found guilty and punished to the fullest extent of the law. Please allow this to change their hearts to repentance and salvation.

5. Please help our country defund and abolish abortion and injustice so you will forgive and bless our country as a whole. Please provide for and help the orphans and widows. Let us not pass by our brothers and sisters unmoved but help them with Your love and empathy, knowing You adopted us as well and provide for us.

6. Please allow people to be released from their addictions to tech and social media/phones and pleasure addictions which have become their idols. Please release and help them so they are ready when you come soon for your church.

7. Please purify your church and strengthen her to prayer and fasting and worship together. Destroy the evil within her and cast out demons who have infiltrated. Help your church to remember her job of missions, winning souls for your kingdom, worshipping You. Please help and strengthen and bless Your persecuted church around the world.

8. Please save as many as you can from the clutches of Satan and soften their hearts to Jesus Christ as their Lord for their eternal soul’s sake.

9. Please strengthen and heal my friends and family for prayer and prepare their hearts and souls for your coming.

10. Please keep the demons and evil ones who have chosen to worship them from being effective in the evil they want to do. Stop their plans, dear Lord, and protect us. May all the evil plans come to ruin and be hindered and useless and may You, Lord, and Your angels win every battle.

11. We love and pray for Israel. We pray for her peace and that the Jews will realize that Jesus is their Messiah and be saved. Praise be the God of Israel. Please bless her.

12. We worship you, dear Jesus. We give you praise, honor due you and adore your glory. You are worthy of all our love and adoration and worship. You are holy and true.

In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.❤❤❤
