God makes my enemies at peace with me



A few weeks back my Ford van was keyed. I have been having problems with our new neighbors and their dog pooping where my children played. After confronting the issue at hand, my vehicle was unfortunately damage! I saw the word "wacky" scratched into my van and other various scratches. I looked at the keyed scratches and said, "God guards all that is mine and that person just picked a battle with God, himself". I went ahead reported the issue with management and went along with my business.

Fast forward a few weeks later the person who damage my vehicle, their window was busted out of their car!! Oh Boy! The bible is so clear! We will always reap what we sow! That day I did  NOT rejoice in what happened to her vehicle, as the scriptures say so clearly here, we are NOT too!

Proverbs 24: 17-18 Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displeases Him,
And He turn away His wrath from him.


 However, I just pray if only they knew the God we serve and allowed Jesus to reach their heart to do good instead of evil! You see, when you play on the devil`s territory he will wreak havoc on your life. If you dwell in the safety of the almighty, He fights your battles and keeps us in perfect peace!

The bible even goes on further to say, He will even make our enemies at peace with us! Today, I can walk by my neighbor and say a friendly hello and have a chat. What was done in the past stays there and all is forgiven. God holds no grudges and neither do I. We are to forgive, move on, and pray for souls.

I thank God for restoring peace with the neighbors and guarding all that is mine!
Proverbs 16:7
When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way he causes their enemies to make peace with them

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

Green Tomatoes

I am a mother and a wife, and my life is always busy. So very often my chats with God, are during those quick moments of silence.

I could be washing dishes, doing laundry or preparing a meal. It’s those moments I hear His whispers, because my spirit is silent.

Green Tomatoes !! Okay, God I have green tomatoes . Look again, and realize why they are not ripening as quickly as you like them too. I hear him gently whisper to my spirit.

My mother has a vegetable garden in her backyard which has green tomatoes and red tomatoes . Sometimes we pick the green tomatoes, and bring it inside and allow them to turn red from the sunlight . My mother then places her green tomatoes on her kitchen window shelf, where the sun can directly hit them.

Her tomatoes always ripen quickly. If those tomatoes are not in the direct sunlight they take awhile to turn red. Allot longer then being in the sun.

In this Christ life, God wants us mature like those red tomatoes! Ready to be eaten and used. He dose not want u…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
