A brighter path awaits for us

The path of the righteous (somebody who is in right standing with Jesus) gets brighter and brighter until the full day" (when Jesus returns)! (Proverbs 4:18)
I do expect things to get better for me until Jesus comes. I do expect to have better clarity for my future. I do expect to be better equipped to deal with everyday problems because I will be able to see them with a better perspective. As pastor Dickow says, " I'm designed by God to get better spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially and in my relationships."

God speaks

God speaks. Sometimes I receive words of knowledge or can see little visions to show the people that God knows them and loves them. However, when I, myself, can feel the heartbeat of the Father for them I become an oracle of both his knowledge and his emotions. I can actually feel the person's pain and the compassion of the Father for her or him. And this is exactly how our heavenly Father uses me as a prophet.

New Attitude of Gratitude

Thanksgiving is the highest form of faith. When I see a promise in God's Word, I ask for it; and thank God that I have it. Right there my faith soars.I receive all that God promises, and I walk in gratitude for what he has already done.
Having an attitude of gratitude every day makes me aware of all the blessings that come my way. Busy during the holidays, I have forgotten about my thank-you list.
I am back, Lord, with a new attitude of gratitude for the New year.

My "Butterfly Lesson"

Is God talking to you? Is he encouraging you to do something? 
He wanted me to keep writing books. Yet, I was not sure it was God speaking. Then I read Joyce Meyer's and Deborah Bedford's book, The Penny. That novel gave me the courage to keep writing my own stories with a new-acquired knowledge that my past was the stepping stone to reach others. God had the power to use my pain to heal hurting human beings, to give hope to the hopeless, and to set free many who were oppressed by depression, evil spirits and abusive husbands. My experience did matter in reaching many who were still suffering. My efforts to get out of the cocoon of disbelief and atheism were not in vain. I had emerged with airy wings so enormous I could sour on the Spirit’s power. My suffering had given me courage to show God’s love to the oppressed. I had stories to tell; I had the power to encourage others; I had the willingness to serve the One who had saved me and had given me wings.
