Do you really think you are struggling? What are you struggling with? Could it be financially, physcially, or spiritually? Regardless of what it is there is hope for you! Jesus said,¨Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy ladden and I will give you rest! You may say what do you mean by struggling? Well do you find it hard to get through another day? According to Webster’s dictionary – to struggle means to work with difficulty and effort. We often find ourself worrying when we should be praying. Sometimes we are dreading what will happen tomorrow when we should leave it in God’s hands, for He already knows about our tomorrows before they come to us. Instead of grumbling or feeling self pity, if we would react with prayer and praise, we would find the whole situation would change and by the time we get there everything would be different for us! WE wouldn’t need to struggle! When we get into a tight place and we think there is no more hope, that is the time to really hang on and the tide will turn for us!
Perhaps you may think I can’t do that. But we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us! Philipians 4:13. Every time we go through an experience such as this we can gain new hope and courage if we will stop struggling and just leave it in God’s hands! I find, myself, that depression must leave, knowing it will have to leave if we call upon Jesus’ name!
Every time I hear of a suicide because of depression I really feel bad and think if only they had known Christ as their Saviour and personal friend, this wouldn’t have happened! Won’t you give Jesus a try today, and see what a change He will make in your life? Just start praying and praising God, let Him come into your heart. You really won’t have to struggle anymore! There is victory in Christ Jesus!
He will fill your heart today to overflowing, as the LORD commanded you, bring your vessels, not a few, He will fill your heart today to overflowing with the Holy Ghost and fire!
You can have a song in your heart in the night! After every trial, after every mile! Anyone can sing when the sun is shining bright, but you need a song in your heart at night!
There’ll be no more detours in Heaven. No rough roads along the way. I’m using my bible for a road map. The next stop is Heaven some sweet day.

It’s a good life living for the Lord! It’s a good life living for the LORD! It’s so wonderful just knowing our reward! Every day His prescious love I can enjoy. It’s a good life living for the LORD!

As we have passed through this Easter season once again, the cry of my heart is Lord, don’t let me fail! I really want to be ready to meet Jesus in the clouds of the sky!.I want His eye of approval upon me. If I have done something wrong I want Him to check me hard as I want to make it right here, before I see Him! It would be terrible to meet the Master and hear Him say “depart from me, I never knew you.In His word He tells us that the way is strait and narrow and few there be that find it! But broad is the way that leadeth to destruction and many go in there at! I had someone tell me recently that there will be more go in to the straight and narrow way,than will be turned away, but that isn’t what HIS word Says! It tells us that His Word is true! Jesus said I am he Way the truth and the light, He that believeth in me, though He were dead, yet shall he live, and he that liveth and believeth on me shall never die!He also said I came not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance! We were all born in sin and shaped in eniquity, therefore we all have to come to Jesus the same way! We must obey Acts 2:38. There is only one way to Heaven! Jesus said He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned! He also said He made it so plain that even a fool or wayfaring man shall err therein! I don’t want to discourage anyone but would urge you to seek the Lord, as He is coming very soon! Lord don’t let me fail, help me make the Bride,when my faith is weak ,keep me by thy side When my way is dark ,always let me see something in my life that you have done for me. Never failed me yet ,never failed me yet.GODS love has never failed me yet where so ere I go this one thing I know ,GODS love has never failed me yet.

How many times have we repeated this little phrase until it literally become habits? As It seems to me that I have, as every time my hubby goes out the door he says “Are you coming?” My response is “I’m on my way!” even though I may stop and get a mint!

I think of the many times that when Jesus ,was on his way to heal the sick. While He was on the way to Jairus` home to heal his daughter, He never refused to stop and heal those who cried out for His mercy. A crowd was following Him, and there was a woman who had an issue of blood. She said within herself,’if I can but touch the hem of His garment I shall be whole!` and guess what? she was made whole! Jesus knew within himself that somebody had touched him and when he asked who it was his disciples said,` Lord why would you ask that when there is a crowd about you?` He said, `I felt virtue leave my body!` When she knew that He knew , she came and confessed all to Him. He said, ` Lady go thy way thy faith hath made thee whole!’ You can be made whole today! Jairus, who was a ruler of the Synagogue came and wanted him to come to his house and heal his 12 year old daughter, while Jesus was on His way a servant came and told him that his daughter was dead, not to bother the master any further, but Jesus told him not to worry his daughter was only sleeping! When He got to the house he put them all out except some of the disciples and the mother and father then took the girl by the hand and said, `Damsel arise!’ She arose and Jesus said, `Give her something to eat!`

Then one day he said ‘ I’m going to see Lazarus, he sleepeth ‘, His disciples said ‘ If he sleepeth, he doeth well’ (in my own words) Jesus said ‘He is dead, I am going to raise him up’? Martha heard He was coming and ran to Him. She said Lord, if you had been here he wouldn’t have died’ Jesus said, `He will rise again.` Mary heard He was there and went running to him and said the same thing as Martha did to him. He asked ‘Where did you lay him?` Mary said, ‘He has been dead four days and by now he stinketh` Jesus said ‘’roll the stone away’ and when they did He said `Lazarus, come forth!’ and he came forth still wrapped in the grave clothes! He said ‘loose him and let him go! Can you just imagine the joy the sisters experienced that day?

We serve this great God today, and He is just the same, still doing these miracles today! , A few Sundays ago at the Ripples United Pentecostal Church a Bro, by the name of Jerry Stafford passed away in service there was a nurse there and they couldn’t even get his heartbeat, so they prayed for him and by the time the paramedics arrived he was completely healed! Yes, He is just the same today!

You can`t make me doubt Him! You can’t make me doubt Him! You can’t make me doubt Him in my heart! No you can’t make me doubt Him for I can’t live without Him, no you can’t make me doubt Him in my heart!

oh, I feel like pressing my way, yes I feel like pressing my way! I am on my way to heaven and I feel like pressing my way!

I AM GOING THERE!

     Perhaps you have been so tired of being closed in your home for so long that you just want to take a nice long vacation and it doesn’t   really matter where, if only you can get away!  When you come back you feel it was good to have gone!   I  remember  this happened to
me at one time, but it is so much better if you take the time to plan before hand!    I Think it is so much better for all concerned!  I like to know if company  is coming so that I can prepare for them, and I think most people feel like that too!  Then again  you may get ready  to go and something comes up and hinders you from going! 
    I remember one such trip when it seemed as if we just were not supposed to go! We managed to get on the highway and the trailer hitch broke so it took us most of the day to get started! We got to our destination late that evening. But I was stubborn and said I am going there!
    I am ready to take a trip again, and I am going there!  How do I know?  I got prepared already, and my mansion is waiting for me! You can guess where I am planning to go, it’s Heaven, of course!  I am just waiting for the Lord to come and take us away!  I did what he said for us to do to get ready, according to Acts 2:38. And now I am waiting for His return. I want to live holy as He is holy!  I don’t want to be caught living in sin or I won’t make it in as Jesus said that no sin is going to enter there! (Rev,21&27) And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie, but they which are written in the Lambs Book of Life. So it will pay to have our name written down! 
Is my name written there ,in pages white and fair, tell me Jesus my Savior is my name written there.
I’m on my way to those mansions fair, just over in the glory land, there to sing Gods praise and His glory share.  Just over in the glory land I’ll join the mighty angle band just over in the glory land.

CALLING YOU!

As a child, do you recall playing with your neighbours when your mother would call you to come home? You were having so much fun that you really didn’t want to leave right then so you stayed for a while longer, but in a few minutes you heard her voice again and you thought this time you had better leave.  When  you got home she had a surprise waiting for you,your favourite cousin was waiting for you, had you stayed another few minutes you would  have missed out, as they were ready to leave!  You were so glad you had heeded the call before it was too late!

I remember I went to work in Sussex as my first job and also my first time being away from home. I had a little sister 12 years younger than myself, who hadn’t  started to school, but had gone across the field to play with her little friend.  She didn’t  know I was coming home that day, but when I went out and  hollered “Myrna” She recognized my voice and came running up the hill as fast as she could!  She was as excited, as was I, as was only  home for a few hours as I had to go back to work the next day!  Sometimes it really pays to pay attention when you hear your name being called!

There has been times when I was so engaged in a book that when my hubby called my name I didn’t even hear him!  It wasn’t that I did it intentionally either! I was just so taken up with the story!  It is coming close to a day when my name will be called again and I don;t want to be too busy to hear it!  I hope all my family and friends will also hear their name when it is called and will be ready to answer, Yes Lord, Here I am! Then we will hear  “Thou good  and faithful servant. enter into the rest that I have prepared for you!” 

But in order for us to hear that we have to prepare ourselves to meet Him!  If you don’t know how to get prepared  I will tell you how, and hope you will believe me!  In Acts the 2nd chapter , verse 38 & 39 you can read it for yourself! On the Day of Pentecost , Peter stood up and told the unbelievers what they must do to be saved, and it is just the same today! God has never changed his mind!  You must repent of your sins, (be sorry for your sins, enough to completely turn your life around) and be baptised in the Name of Jesus for the remission of your sins, and Jesus will fill you with the gift of the Holy Ghost!  Then you must walk holy in his sight, for He is Holy! If you will just taste and see how good God is I’m sure you will want Him in your life and will wonder how you ever got along without Him in your life!

Calling you, Calling you, don’t you hear the blessed Saviour calling you?  He will take you by the hand, lead you to that promise land!  Don’t you hear the Blessed Saviour calling you?

Calling today,calling today,Jesus is calling, tenderly calling today.Come home,come home,ye who are weary come home.earnestly ,tenderly,Jesus is calling ,calling oh sinner come home.

I’m trying to write another book as I do this story, from now on my stories are apt to be quite short. Hence the title-“And That’s All Folks!” I started writing in August of 2009, when  the Lord told me to write!  I answered by saying, “Lord, I’ll do this as long as you tell me what to write.”  So when I asked for another title today, this is all I got! I am not saying that I won’t be writing any more stories, but I am terribly slow and getting slower!  I still plan to do at least one story each week–Lord willing!

This morning started off when our cat (Lucky), upset my carnations, that my husband got me for Valentine’s Day, on the floor!  She knows she can bother me, as I can’t get around to chase her!  I can’t even swat her hard enough. Because of this she thinks I am playing with her.  One day she was tormenting me.  So I took a ruler I had in my hand and started hitting her.  So, she grabbed a cushion off the chair and rolled on to her back and held the cushion in front of her, as if to say, “Keep on playing with me, I don’t care!” Roy was watching and got a real laugh out of her!                   

We have been watching Bro. Irvine Baxter’s DVDs (The End Time series) on Wednesday evenings at church, which are about the end times.  They tell us what to expect concerning the time we are living in today.  Jesus said, “No man knows the day or the hour when the Son of man cometh”, but we do know the signs of the times that we are living in.  He also said, “When ye see these things begin to come to pass then look up for your redemption draweth nigh!”  So, as we know, we are in the last days! Jesus is coming sooner than we might think for His people  and it would pay us to get prepared for this great  event!  Perhaps you are wondering what must I do to be in that number, who go to be with the Lord?  On the day of Pentecost they asked Peter, “What must we do to be saved?”  He answered, “Ye must repent and be baptized, in the name of the Lord Jesus, for the remission of sin, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost!”  He went on to say, “For the promise is to you and your children and to all that are afar off, as many as the Lord our God, shall call.”  That means you and I today!  How do I know?  I know, because I have the Holy Ghost!  And you may have it too! Christ died on the cross, to grant us liberty! Over every sin, there is perfect victory! I have it and I know it!  And you may have it too! And that’s it folks!

Try Jesus!  He never fails! O’er evil, His love prevails. Through sunshine or stormy gales!  Try Jesus!  He  never fails! Never failed me yet!  Never failed me yet!

Jesus love has never failed me yet!  Where so ever I go, this one thing I know.  Jesus’ love has never failed me yet!

LIFT HIM UP!

Have you ever been in a large crowd and somebody is sitting in front of you with a small child or a baby?  You instantly think, “I wish they would lift him/her up so that I can see him!” Then everybody stood along with the person who had the little one placed it over their shoulder and a great big smile appears !  You may think, “That is the sweetest baby ever!”  But you couldn’t even see it until they lifted him/her up!  Or perhaps you are at a concert at a Children’s school, and a child gets up to say his/her part but they can’t be seen until the teacher intervenes and lifts them up a bit.  Now everyone seems to be drawn to them!  They think they are just adorable now that they can be seen!

One day a teacher came to earth and told His disciples, “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me!”  Many said, “What does He mean?  Is not this the carpenters son? We have known him all of his life! He worked in the carpenters shop and we have gone fishing together” We know he does some strange things, but what does he have in mind now?

We remember the day we went to Peter’s house and his wife’s mother was sick with a fever but Jesus made her whole! She got right out of bed and ministered to us!  We remember the first strange thing he did too.  He had gone to a wedding and his mother came and told him they had no more wine!  She told the servants to do whatever he said. She must have known him to do strange things at home too! Jesus then told the servants to fill the water pot with water and to bear it to the Governor of the feast! I don’t think they even questioned them about it!  When the Governor had tasted it he said to the bridegroom “How come you have saved the best wine to the last? They usually serve the best wine first and when everyone has well drunk then they serve the bad, but you have saved the best until the last!”   We again see Jesus at Mary and Martha’s house! Lazarus had passed away and Jesus came to do another miracle!  When Mary saw Jesus she said, “If only you had been here he would not have died!”  Jesus wept!  He said, “Where have you laid him?” Mary said, “He has been dead for four days, by now he stinketh!”  Jesus said,”Roll the stone away!”  When they had rolled the stone away, Jesus cried, “Lazarus come forth!”  Lazarus came forth dressed in his grave clothes.  Jesus said, “Loose him and let him go!” The Bible tells us he did so many miracles the world couldn’t contain them!  So let’s just lift Him up!  He is still doing miracles today!

Lift Him up! Lift Him up!  Still He speaks from eternity.  He said, “If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me!

I recommend the LORD to you!  i recommend the Lord to you!  If you’re in need of a Saviour , I recommend the Lord to you!

Jesus is coming very soon and there is only two places we can go, it is either heaven or hell for you and me, and I don’t want to see anyone go to hell and I sure don’t want to go there myself!

So it is your  choice!  Please choose Heaven!   Jesus won’t force you.  He gave you a mind of your own but He said, “Today is the day of salvation!”  So if you are not ready to go to be with HIM I  suggest you get ready now!  Don’t put it off any longer as tomorrow may be too late!  Help me Lift Him up today!

Oh, I want to go there, I want to go there, I want to go there, I do!  I want to go there, I want to go there, I want to go there, don’t you?
