Lessons in God from a toddler 

​I didn’t get baptized until I was 28: so noticing God’s goodness is new in my life!

(Not church— God) 

* I’m a middle-aged adult toddler hungry for the word of God

I keep thinking he’s going to leave me 

No matter how much I read my Bible I can’t find it…. 

You know the part where it says what I will do to make him leave

like everyone  has before 

I keep thinking it’s all going to go away that’s he’s gonna stop taking care of me when I make him mad. 

That’s the thing about God’s love I dont think I can mess it up, (as gansta as I am lol) 

I worry because I know I’m going to fall,  

But now it’s like he catches me right before I land. 

“I never  had anyone love me quit the way you do,

You know everything I do 

And I’m still good enough for you! ”

(Approval from you, knowing my flaws has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me.)


I believe they call it ???





You are better off to ha e a friend than be all alone, because then you will get more enjoyment out of what you earn. If you fall your friends can help you. But if you fall without having a friend nearby you are really in trouble. 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 cev

Everyone one needs a friend some one that will over look our inner beast. Everyone needs a should sister or kindred spirit.

Dear God,

thank you for the friendship in my life. They are such an encouragment.


No matter what we’ve done.

If we confess our sins. He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from  All unrighteousness. 

1 John 1:9 Nasb

No matter what we’ve done father God can repair, restore, and revitalize the remnant of our lives for His higher glory.

It’s true. Believe it.

Then act like you believe it.

Look at your Biblical examples

  • Rahab the harlot 
  • David the murderer
  • Jacob the deceiver
  • Peter the betrayar 

All made Terrible choices that resulted in henuious sin. Yes the were guilty.Yet they refused to wallow in guilt in their mistakes. Instead they rose above the guilt and moved forward to God. 

I never in a million years thought I would get over the guilt. But I’m at a place now where all I can do is run towards God. It’s like him and I have been getting to know each other these past 3 years. I keep waiting on Him to fail me almost challenging Him at times. Yet his still has mercy on my soul. 

Protecting my family. Under his wings I feel the grace I need to be one more righteous. I strive to please Him everyday. And I always fail. Some of my actions praise worthy some not so much. But I am absolutely confident God will complete his work in me. 

Philippians 1:6New International Version (NIV)

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Dear God,

Thank you that when I confess, you forgive a d cleanse from all unrighteouness no matter what the sin. Please help me to have co fidence and peace and move forward in that truth.


My favorite prostitutes


Today I read Joshua, and fell in love with my girl Rahab all over again. Each time I read the book I find something else she did that amazes me. 

What kind of circumstances her life was in before these strange men entered her home.What her experiences and option of men probably was. 

 I enjoy the part of her standing up to the law of the land for God too. She was aware of God’s power even as she lived in “sin” hosting different men for money to provide for her family. 

> Her love for her family is also shown when she asked to be spared when they take the city. 

> She makes sure to include them in her request. 

> she takes their Word, and put that red scarf for them to see. 

> obedience is rewarded

>she was the One God choose for the lineage of King David, which would trickle down to the SAVIOR himself

> to me she is one impressive hooker

All those years of being an outcast to the people around her. God Knew she would protect those men and obey. i dont think they showed up at her house on accident. God knew her heart, beyond her faults. Everyone around her probably thought they were “better” than her. Yet God destroyed the entire town but her. She knew in her heart that God is Lord of all things and would protect her and bless her. And thats why she was chosen, the sparing of her life leads to King David……. right down to the Savior himself.

It didn’t take much to convince her that she would be saved by God. She had only heard of the parting of the red sea she didn’t even have a New Testament edition. Or a book full of miracles like we do. She just heard and believed, “for the Lord Your God” she says, “he is God on heaven and earth.” Her faith and obedience saved her and her whole family. (And us)

 And lead to the birth of the One that saves us all. With out this prostitutes faith and trust in God’s word. We wouldn’t be redeemed, forgiven, or able to approach our Heavenly Father.

Maybe the next time you pass by a “street walker”  or see someone as “scum”Instead of judgment and criticism, you can try to see Rahab,in all her glory. God’s glory 

Rahab was the unlikeliest of heroes-

A woman who sold herself to lusty men in the dark shadows. Scum, we might say today. Yet she is the very person God choose to be one the vital link to the lineage of David, and layer Jesus himself. 

Rahab is proof that God  can and WILL — Use anyone with faith for His higher purpose. Anyone! 

Dear Abba,

At times I doubt how I could possibly do good for you. Please remind me that you are working in ways I cannot see, You can use anyone willing to serve. Even me


* Happy are the meek

Matthew 5:5

happy are the meek, for they will inherite the earth

 The meek spirit does not flash into anger, does not answer again, takes harsh words gently and humbly.

OK let’s sink this In:

◾ does not flash  into anger…
{ what a goal to strive for. How do you react when you get angry?}
Scripture says we’re not even suppose to “flash” demonstrate, show, make known our anger at all, ” the meek spirit does not answer again” 
{ even after being angered God wants us to strive not to show our anger }
◾ Takes harsh words gently

is God saying is we do these things we will be happy?
YES even though it will be hard and uncomfortable the end result of true happiness is worth it

The quiet spirit is calm and tranquil; peaceful in itself, it spreads peace around

personal note: i talk a lot i have a very outgoing personality. and it causes many troubles in my life. just random things i say can be interpreted wrong. I can unknowing stir trouble by just chattering. this is something i pray and work on daily. 

Ephesians 3:8

​This is my life work: helping people understand and respond to this Message. It came as a sheer gift to me, a real surprise, God handling all the details. When it came to presenting the Message to people who had no background in God’s way, I was the least qualified of any of the available Christians. God saw to it that I was equipped, but you can be sure that it had nothing to do with my natural abilities. And so here I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ. My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along. Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!

Ephesians 3:7‭-‬8 MSG


Often I feel under qualified to talk about God as boldly as I do because I am the least of all the Christians I know. At times I have no actual planning to what I’m saying. The Holy Spirit handles all the details. I find myself drawn to people with no background of God’s ways. For I was just as surprised as Paul when I received the gift of the gospel.

Here I am daily speaking of things that are way over my head. Yet God always provides the right scriptures, wisdom and revelations right on time.
I can’t help but tell others about the peace and joy I’ve found in Jesus. It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me. 

Are you good enough???

God did not wait until he saw you, he didn’t wait to see what you looked like or what talents and abilities you have to assign a purpose just for you in your life, your purpose was decided before you were ever born.
he has had a more awesome plan for you life than you could ever imagine before you were even born. if you have ever thought that for some reason you’re not qualified for a purpose in this life. God’s word clearly says he knew us, sanctified us, appointed us as prophets to all nations!!!!!

5“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

New International Version

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

King James Bible

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Darby Bible Translation

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I hallowed thee, I appointed thee a prophet unto the nations.

World English Bible

“Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you. Before you came forth out of the womb, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.

Young’s Literal Translation

‘Before I form thee in the belly, I have known thee; and before thou comest forth from the womb I have separated thee, a prophet to nations I have made thee.’
