1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
As far back as I can remember I have had insomnia waking up at least 10xs a night EVERY NIGHT! I know a lot of it had to do with the day in and day out stress I was under from the physical, mental, and emtional abuse I was enduring. (I was also convinced I as going bald because of the handfuls of hair I lost every day until I was saved and moved away) I also know it was and still is because I am an extremely light sleeper, part of my hypervigilance I’m sure. To say the least I’m pretty drained most of the time even with all the crossfitting and healthy eating to promote energy.

As our faith grows in our Christian lives 🙂
Some might be disappointed, but this is not one of those quizzes like I see posted on Facebook. (There actually is one of those quizzes with this same title, but I didn’t take it because I was afraid that the results would show that I was Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tree).
Ten or twelve years ago, let’s just say eleven, Mary and I were shopping at Home Depot. After finishing our shopping in the store, we wandered out to the garden department to look for some small trees. It was November, and most of the plants were marked down because they were making room for Christmas trees.
Mary got hung up looking at wreathes and other boring items, so I cruised my wheelchair over to go look at trees. As it turned out, there were not many trees left, and I didn’t see anything I was interested in. Just when I was…

You have to make amends with your past. You can not just “forget” about them. In an earlier post I spoke about knowing I still had anger about my past. What I did not realize at that time is that, THAT is exactly what is keeping me from removing the spirit of anger from my life. Therefore I have added more and more anger throughout my life unbeknownst to me why.
Being in a relationship with God is NEW to me. Ive always believed in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit but thats were it ended. I didn’t even pursue to know him for most of my adult life. I prayed but I did not read his word. And therefore as our Pastor at KTCC would…

There is a reason for every trial and tribulation you go through in life. God is setting you up for his purpose and blessing you greatly within each and every thing you go through.
For years I was Mentally, physically and emotionally abused by my mother and her wife. It was heart wrenching, angering, and devastating. I contemplated suicide all the time. I wanted out. I was so hurt by what they were doing and my hurt turned into great anger that I carried around for YEARS. I would be lying if I said I didnt still carry some of that around with me still to this day. (Its something I am always working on) I was not raised a Christian nor was I permitted to go to church. I can probably count on one hand how many times I went to church until the age of 16. But I…

19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
The enemy squeezes his way in and causes chaos and torment among us all. Why is truth persecuted? Why are people openly accepting and condoning sin? What is with all the hate!?!!? We need to united together under God.
The devils got a hold on me
every time I try and flee
he creates new and horrid things to see.
He creates chaos out of thin air
unfairness and despair
Unbeknownst his followers are everywhere.
Why can’t they see the sin in their ways
They’ve put them out there proudly on display
Don’t they know that HELL is for always!?
I beg of you there is no time to waste
These horrors you do NOT want to face
Except JESUS with haste!
I am with GOD you condemned and evil devil
One day you WILL be revealed along with your fellows!

“Every good and perfect gift is from above…”
I saw a young mother,
With eyes full of laughter;
And two little shadows,
Came following after…
Wherever she moved,
They were always right there;
Holding onto her skirts,
Hanging onto her chair.
Before her, behind her,
An adhesive pair;
So I posed this question,
Hanging in the air:
“Don’t you ever get weary,
As, day after day;
Your two little tagalongs,
Get in your way?”
She smiled as she shook,
Her pretty young head;
And I’ll always remember,
The words that she said..
“It’s good to have shadows,
That run when you run;
That laugh when you’re happy,
And hum when you hum –
For you only have shadows,
When your life’s filled with sun.”
