Taking a Break

I just wanted all you readers, or the ones who care about the blog, that I am taking a few days off from the blog. I'm going through some tough right now and I just need a few days off. Please pray for me as I make some hard decisions and go through everything. I will write more and start back soon, but for now, I haven't forgotten about you, my wonderful readers (though honestly not sure if I have any but I'm being optimistic). When I get back, hopefully I will have a lot say.

Please be praying for me. I could really use it right now.

Here's my challenge. Tell someone how much you appreciate them today, especially a friend. I have found that we don't share appreciation enough. We tend to take each other for granted.

Finally, I guest blogged on The Type A Housewife. I hope you enjoy it.


  1. i may not comment on the blog much but i read every post. If you need a friend, im here. just lay the burdens at HIS feet.

    love ya girlie

  2. Sorry to hear you're going through a rough time right now. I may not know what you're struggling with, but I know One that not only knows, but cares & understands. I too have been fighting a rough battle, but I'm slowly learning there are others willing to help when you cannot take another step. It's SO easy to take others for granted but I want you to know I love you & your posts have been an encouragement/blessing to me. You are an AMAZING person!! Remember, you are NOT in the battle alone!! There are Sisters in our church that's more than willing to listen, offer advice/suggestions or help in any way they can. If you're like me, you HATE asking & think people should automatically offer their help or support; however, if they are not aware of the situation, their hands are tied. Trust me, it's a battle I fight more than I want to admit. I've had several Sisters minister to me in the past couple weeks & they ALL have been a blessing to me. Remember...I'm here for you if you EVER need me (day or night) & have already added your name to our family prayer board. God Bless You & will expect to see your testimony of praise soon. Go expecting great things to happen!!

    Love, Rebekah M.

  3. Read these scriptures & quotes:

    Philippians 4:13, 1 Chronicles 28:20, Deuteronomy 31:6, Deuteronomy 31:8, John 14:18 & Psalms 37:4.

    E-14 And God will never... You can never exhaust God's love and mercy to you. You say, "Well, I hate to bother You so much, Father."
    He wants to be bothered that way. He does. Don't never think that you could ever ask too much of God. I believe the Scripture said, "You have not, because you ask not. And you ask not, because you believe not."
    He wants us to ask and believe that our joys would be full. He wants you to ask abundantly. Ask for big things; don't limit your faith to some little mustard seed. Get on out here to some other kind of faith, and move out in big things. Ask... Big things is just as easy to receive as little things. You just have to believe; that's all. And you got faith, just know exactly how to use it, and it'll be all right. You can put it right to work and it'll just be fine.

    E-34 And when they crossed Jordan, which means the... Jordan's always been the death sign. And when they crossed Jordan, Elijah turned around and said, "What would you that I would do unto you?"
    Said, "That a double portion of your Spirit be sent upon me."
    Said, "You've asked a great thing." God wants us to ask for big things. My, God, He--He don't run out of blessings up there. You can't ask for too much. Could you imagine a little fish about that long, out in the middle of the ocean saying, "I better not drink much of this water, 'cause it might go dry." Well, that's just as unreasonable as it would be, or more so reasonable than to be to think that God's blessings would ever be exhausted to a believer. All heavens belong to you.

    E-17 Now, Elijah was a--Elijah was a stern man and very bold, and he was set in here for an example. God placed him here to show His Divine judgment through this man. And Elijah, his successor, was a young fellow and not too old, probably in his forties or something, when God called him. And he received a double portion of the Spirit of God that was upon Elijah, come upon Elisha. Oh, what a type there that is of the Church. See, as Elijah the prophet was taken up and Elijah asked... Elisha asked Elijah, or vice versa it was, Elijah asked Elisha, "What will you that I do for you?"
    And watch. He asked a great thing: "That a double portion of your Spirit come upon me."
    Now, the Bible wants us to ask for big things, not to be satisfied, "Lord, yeah, I belong to church now. That's enough." No, that's not enough for me. I want to do something else. I want great things. "Well, Lord, by His grace, I claim a million souls for Christ in my own individual ministry, a million souls or better." I'm not satisfied with that. I want two or three million souls for Christ. Just got to keep going as long as I got breath and energy to move, I just want to keep on going. Because this is the only time I'm going to be able to do that. Right now (See?), right now. And this may be your last time that you'll have the opportunity to do it.
