Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

Luke 23:34

  And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said,   “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.'                  Having said this, He breathed His last.

 “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’

 Having said this, He breathed His last.

Luke 23:46




 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Ezra -  Good morning/evning friends. Bessings to you and your families this beautiful day the good Lord has provided for us. As I sat down this morning to read the Bible I ased God what I needed to learn this morning. I read psalm 91 and 23 . Those psalms are a part of my daily reading for protection and to calm me knowing God is with me always taking care of me and my needs and wants. So that done I let God guide me . He guided me to the Book of Ezra. O.K. God I will read this. I must say I read so many unpronounceable (to me) names. Name after name, and how much gold, silver,livestock and goods. Where are all these people going with all their possesions? They were off to build the house of God in Jerusalem. Ezra1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lordby the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
Pray Just Do It - Good morning/evening friends. Another one of God's beautiful days today. Blessings to you and your families. Pray just do it!! It sounds easy doesn't it? or does it? How do I start it ? What do I say? Do I ask for things or What? Those are some of the questions I had when I did not know how to pray. I have come to find out upon reading the Bible that even a groan, a whisper, a shout will reach Him. Jesus was asked that very same question by one of His disciples. They wanted to know how to pray the way John taught his disciples.
God of Hevean -  Hello friends. I pray that everyone is doing well this beautiful day the Lord has created. Friends the other day I was feeling that I needed to do more than what I was doing. Wow talk about not trusting God and resting on His word So I decided with help from one of my sisters who never fails to open my eyes to God's promises to do just that. So I kicked off my shoes and rested. I relaxed and trusted God to do His job which is to love me, protect me, guide me and so much more. Yes my friends when we try to do things ourselves God rests, when we trust God and we rest, God takes over and does the work for us. The only thing we have to do is thank Him for taking over. Isn't it awesome to have someone to remind you of this?
Yet I will not forget- Good morning friends. A beautiful day the Lord has created for us today. We had some severe weather here in Texas a couple of nights ago or I should say morning (started at 2 am) . I live in an rv and I can tell you it was not pleseant. I know that God did not forget me. I know that as I prayed through the storm God was with me. He did not forget that I needed Him to get me through it. Don't get me wrong I did not just pray for me I prayed for all of the people in the storm's path. Some of us don't pray during a storm. We can get overwhelmed and forget to pray. Some of us instead of praying through it we ask God , Where are You? Have You forgotten about me and my family? I am not just talking about the weather. I am talking about all kinds of storms the devil throws at us.  read more
My God is BiggerHello fb friends. Blessings to all on this beautiful day the Lord has created for us. Many of us are going through some rough times right now. It could be an illness, separation from spouse, financial problems, children who are being disrespectful,...ect. Whatever you are going through just remember that God is bigger inside of you than any problem outside of you. There is no problem that God can't handle. Trust Him to deliver you from whatever is going on in your life..
Healing Done Right- Good morning/evening friends. Another glorious day to praise God in. Another glorious day to thank Him for our healing. Isaiah 58:8 says Then your light shall break forth like the morning. Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you. The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Thank You Lord for healing me of anything that entered my body in a weak moment. Thank you Lord the cross that makes this possible. Thank You for I am covered in the blood of Jesus from the top of my head to the soles of my feet, by His stripes I am healed.
Showers of Blessings- Hello friends I pray that everyone is having a great day today. With everything that is going on in the world especially lately I just wanted to remind us all that we have a God that loves us. There is no other God besides Him. I Am who I Am gave us His only begotten Son so that we may be saved. In the season of need He is with us. In the season of hurt and pain He is with us. In the season of laughter and joy He is also with us. He is with us every single second of every single day. Please keep reading your Bibles and keep God first in all you do. I thank you for stopping by Faith, Hope & Love and On The Cross today. .and All His people said. Amen!!

Not Letting Go -  Lord , You are with me through every storm. Thank You for not letting go!! Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7 This psalm can help you when you are being tested. Sometimes it seems like the storm will never end. But as the storm rages on we can take comfort that God loves us and is with us through it all.
God is Light -  Good morning friends. Another beautiful day the Lord has created for us today!! 1 God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, wemake Him a liar, and His word is not in us. .....read more
24 Hr. Protection -  Hello friends. I couldn't sleep tonight so I decided to get up and do something constructive. Laying in bed tonight I could not stop thinking about something pastor prince said about psalm 91:1. He said that this psalm was very significant to Americans because of 911. It got me to thinking that whenever I am in trouble or just feel like I need some extra help I read psalm 91:1.  read more
For the one I love -  For the one I love and His name is Jesus. Jesus loved us so much that He willingly gave Himself up to die On The Cross. Wow!! John 1512 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Amazing He gives up His life for us and all He wants from us is to love one another. There are times that we don't feel loved or feel like we should love someone, Because of the way that person behaved, but in the long run it is easier to just let go and love them. Walking like Jesus is not easy and forgiving is not easy, but it is a command from the one that loves us more than anyone could ever love us. Keep in mind Jesus words in John 15:9
Seek Peace - Hello friends, I hope everyone is doing well this beautiful day the Lord has created for us. Glory to God for allowing us to wittness it. As I sit hear listening to the birds chirping ( i live in South Texas) on this calm sunny day I am reminded of where I come from. You are probably thinking you just said Texas, and you would be right ,but what I am meaning is Abraham. Yes Abraham. Abraham was promised to be the father of all nations in Genesis 17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 

Don't Let Go -

Good Morning Sunshine - Good morning /evening friends. Glory to God for another one of His beautiful sunrises. I got up early this morning to take some sunrise pictures. I love the way God does not disappoint. Some people may say what's the big deal a sunrise is a sunrise . I believe a sunrise is full of Hope. It is a reminder that a new day brings new beginings. Jesus died on the cross for us and if you believe that then you know that each day brings forgiveness, hope, righteouness, grace and mercy. I thank you Lord that you are with me when things and people around me say to not get my hopes up high .  

The Little BayGood morning friends. Glory to God in the highest for a beautiful peaceful day. The other day I went to one of my favorite places " the little bay." I knew I had gone at the wrong time for watching and waiting for birds to feed . One of my favorite things to do is take pictures of birds. I sat and waited and waited and waited and I came to the conclussion that the only birds their were seagulls. Now don't get me wrong seagulls are great in their own way, but not what I wanted. As I sat there I put my head down and complained to God. I said God these birds are great , but could I have something a little more exciting, mind you I was thinking birds like an Egret, Gbh or Pelican. God said really? God said Child you see those all the time , look up!! As I looked up and out onto the bay I saw a dolphin!! Yep I got so excited to see it that I totally forgot to take pictures. I could imagine God laughing and saying, child I believe you needed this dolphin more than a bird today!! He as usual was right!! ....read more

You give me the strength the courage the power over my enemies On The Cross. My enemies are a footstool under my feet. I am the head not the tail. I am blessed, loved. My husband, children, and grandchildren are a Blessing in my life. You love me more than anyone else could ever love me. I thank You Lord for my life. Amen!!




 
 
God's Ferris WheelGood morning/evening friends. A beautiful day God has created for us today praise Him. Doesn't it feel like at times we go in a circle round and round and where it stops nobody knows? It seems like we just can't get off the vicious cycle of a circle.

He does not want us to go around in circles like a dog chasing it's tail or a Ferris wheel that takes us up and around and around.

, For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you says the Lord.

You know friends the older I get the more I realize I need to make each day count. I believe that is called wisdom which I pray for.

Another Day -   Good morning/evening friends. This morning I want to thank God for allowing me to see another day!! Amen !! Yesterday morning I stopped to take pictures of boats and reflections at the marina. I stopped, parked got off and took the pictures. I was heading back to my truck which was parked out on the street. I looked from the sidewalk no cars coming or so I thought.

Thank You Lord for sending Your angels that encamp me as I go about the day! Thank You for Your protection each and every day!! 
Eye to Eye -  Hello friends. Glory to God in the highest for this beautiful day full of potential that the Lord has created for us !!

Boom Where You Are Planted - Hello friends. I pray everyone is having a great day! There have been so many changes in my life recently, some good some not so good. I have learned to listen to God's wisdom and decided to Bloom where I am planted. 1 Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called. I believe that no matter where we are even if it is not where we would have chosen to be we need to do the best of the circumstances. God's msg. can be spread to so many people in so many different ways these days and we need to take advantage of that
Lord How Do You See Me? Hello friends!! Glory to God for another beautiful day He has created for us today! I pray everyone is doing wonderful today. I have a question for you. Have you ever asked God what He sees in you? I have. I did today, but not before I followed a few simple keys you might say. First I found a quiet place to be calm and quiet ike Habakkuk did. You might ask , who was/ is Habakkuk? I never heard of Him. My friends Habakkuk was a prophet who was really upset with God. Why was he upset? Becaus of the violence and plunering. He was so angry and upset that He can't hear God's vision or msg.

My Father's House Good Morning/evening friends. I hope everyone is doing well on this beautiful day the Lord has created for us. My friends we all have different ways to pray. Some of us pray sitting down, some of us kneel down, some of us keep a journal some of us talk out loud to God. My friends it doesn't matter how you pray as long as you do it. Elisha had somone play the harp while he prayed. 2Kings 3:15 "But now bring me a musician ." Then it happend, when the musician played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.

Landing On The Right Place -  Good morning/evening friends. What a beautiful day the Lord has created for us today. Always thanking God for another one of His days that He has allowed me to see and worship Him in. Today I wanted to touch base on trust. Trust is not and easy thing to do when it has been broken. I am not talking about God breaking any promises I am talking about people and jobs. Trusting God to help you out in any situation is not easy when people around you tell you it is not up to God ...to help you out it is up to you to get yourself out I believe that God will help us out of any situation by guiding us, by giving us wisdom, and the knowledge to use it at the right time and the right place. Trust Him. We need to look up for help Once we trust God then He will make sure we land with both feet solidly on the ground where we need to land. Trust it's a beautiful thing especially if we are trusting God. read more

When doubt creeps in I turn to what God gave to all of us. .......read more
