"I hate myself, and I hate my life"; to be a Millennial Part One

You Were Fearfully AND Wonderfully Made

      You watch and study Kim kardashian (insert favorite celebrity here), and then you get up and look in the mirror. You walk past your pile of bills and your dirty dishes to your bathroom, and look at yourself. All you can see are flaws. If I could get this fixed, this lifted, this tucked, then I would be beautiful. You look at your hair, and wish it wasn't so. You look at your home and imagine somewhere different. You look at your marriage, your singleness, your situation, and wish you could change everything- and *RIGHT HERE* is where the devil wants you.
        Many women have resorted to stripping, working in escort services, and exploiting their bodies for the opportunity to have fifteen minutes of fame, and a few dollars. Many are saving up money to get implants, to get lipo, to get injections- trying to be more like the similitude of Kim, forgetting that they are made in the similitude of Christ! Many are fighting, stealing, selling drugs- covering themselves with tattoos to fit into a culture they were never meant to be a part of- because they were actually called to be peculiar. Many are hurting, and crying, and near suicidal as they look at their own lives with anger, because their LIFE as it is, IS NOT ENOUGH. They are obsessing over MORE. We need more money, more attention, more opportunities to shine. The devil has poisoned our minds.
   The devil wants you thirsty for material things. Sooooooo thirsty that when he offers you a sip, you will drink it, no matter the cost. And he has a very effective method. In this social media era, we have been allowed extreme access to look into the lives of the rich and the famous; we have been 'given' a peak into their extravagant lifestyles; we have borne witness to their luxurious way of living. The private jets, the traveling around the world, fabulous clothes, drinking, partying- as we witness it, it affects us. As we consume it, we become hungry, thirsty for more. We create vision boards, visualizing ourselves in worldly places, climates, and positions- using techniques of self-will instead of seeking God's will.
        We become lustful in our hearts, lustful in our minds. We are not happy with ourselves, and certainly not happy for others. This is the exact opposite of what God has designed for our lives.(Philip. 4:11, 1John2:16)
      I hear someone crying because their attempts at fame have failed. They tried to take the gift that God gave them and use it for the world. They took their gift of music, their gift of beauty, their gift of art and they tried to sell it to the devil. They want the attention, they want the fame, they want the money.
       And Satan wants your gift. No, its not about you- He wants it so that he can make God jealous. He wants you to severe your relationship with God and come and lay in his sinful bed.
        He wants you to take the beautiful body that God gave you and cut it up- change it and distort it. He wants you to take the purity that God gave you and pervert it. He wants you to throw away the future that God has created for you, and replace it with a destiny full of sadness, emptiness, and pain.
 He will deceive you at all costs, because he doesn't actually care about you. He puts the pretty things in the window for you to envy, and when you REALLY want it, he will give it to you in exchange for your destiny.
       In exchange for your relationship with God. That's what it costs- that's the only deal that stands (Matt 6:24). Nothing less. And once you trade- many are like Judas and die soon after- for the best kept secret is that the wages of sin is death.
      Soon after the exchange, you see that it wasnt what you thought it was! The fruit of your sinful decisions begins to eat away at you: Babies, Abortions, Infections, Depression, Exclusion, HIV, Divorce, Anxiety, Exploitation, Harrassment, Body Distortion, Obsession... the list goes on and on.
      To my generation I caution you: be careful of what you consume. The devil has a plan for you just like God does. Don't try the devil when you've never tried God. You were bought with a price, and you are a rare gem in the eyes of God. He created you with love. He formed you- and in Him you are truly flawless. In this world, the definition of flawless is manufactured. But in God's eyes, you are exactly the way He wanted you to be.
       You were fearfully and wonderfully made in HIS image. Do not hurt your Savior by giving your body, heart, mind, and gifts to another. Love HIM the way HE loves you, and you will truly have it all. Truly. The devil does not like you. The devil does not care about you. HE is using you to get to God, and as soon as you are used up he will throw you away. Ask all those BIG time celebrities who died early deaths, and now rest in torment.

Please Share this with someone who needs to hear a warning and a message of love! We must be vigilant in this last and EVIL day!

Jehovah Rapha- God My Healer


      My four year old's life has been anything but simple! Since conception, we have battled many different MAJOR struggles, which have ALL become testimonies that showcase the
HEALING and DELIVERING power of our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST. Today I want to share one of our miracles.
      These pictures were taken only 9 months apart. Due to severe eczema and a weak immune system, Noelle was covered from head to toe in scales. Shortly after being diagnosed, all of her hair began to fall out. As parents, we were very distraught and began going to extreme great lengths to cover, cure, and conceal, but every morning her pillow was covered in blood, and every bath time sent patches of hair down the drain. Going in public people would stare, and some would ask about her extreme 'sunburn'. Mommy to the rescue as I adopted tedious bath routines,
and sought the Lord, who granted me wisdom in how to style and cover her issues so that she could still feel confident and beautiful.
       But on my knees in private I would cry and cry to the Lord for help, instruction, and total healing. My husband would anoint her and we began to touch and agree for her healing according to the power and the Word of God.
      One day she was so uncomfortable -and her skin looked so bad- that it looked like we were headed back to the ER, the same day as she had already endured a fruitless pediatric
appointment. We had purchased every cream, tried every medication. We were running out of money, but we were desperate. My mother told us, "just take her in." We got her a happy meal
and took her to the ER at 12 am. We were called to the back, they examined and picked
at her skin. But When the doctor walked out, The nurse said to me, 'I have seen this before, in my own son in Africa. It's what shes eating. If you go to this certain doctor, they can test her, and your insurance will be able cover it over there." We thanked him and praised God, for an option that we could afford.
    The next day we took his advice, got her tested, and sure enough, 90% of what Noelle was eating, she was allergic to! The allergist called us with same day results, saying she had never seen a child with such high allergen levels to certain foods.
      So we went into beast mode, clearing out her diet and teaching her what she can and cannot eat. We took her off all the chemicals, and watched GOD restore and revitalize her skin. But her scalp was still open and was not healing.
     If you ask  Noelle what happened, she will answer you "By His stripes, I am healed." She can quote this scripture and many more, because we declared the Word of God over her life every single day. We prayed, we fasted, we anointed her head and scalp with oil, and God again answered our prayers. Her scalp healed over, and her hair began to sprout out at what looked like a daily rate until all the bald patches were covered. And as you can see, she now has a full head of hair again!
      To any Mother who is dealing with a sick child, I say you have the opportunity to shape what they define as beautiful and help them to build their faith- even as a toddler. They are not too young to seek the Lord! Noelle now has faith, and she has learned to not only pray for herself but also for others. God heard Noelle's little voice. Her faith in God as a healer and a friend is so pure, it brings tears to my eyes!
     And to anyone struggling with ANY health issue, I say to you that NOTHING is too hard for GOD! You dont have to live bound, when you serve a God who is in TOTAL control. Ask God to lead you in wisdom in what to do, and HE WILL ANSWER. The Lord led us to the hospital that night, and put that nurse in our room. After we left the ER, the doctor had only prescribed the same drugs that everyone else did. Had it not been for the nurse that God placed in our path, we would still be in the same boat! God will place people and angels in your path that will answer your prayers!
      Ask in faith, ask in expectation. If I told you all that God has done for my health- your jaw would drop. Ill stop here for today and leave it at this: Keep the Faith and never forget Mark 9:23: If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth!

5 Reasons You Don't Read Your Bible, And How to Overcome Them

                                               "Help!! I dont like reading my Bible!"

Please Don't do the 'Daniel Fast' Without Reading the Book of Daniel...

     What if whilst on your death-bed, someone told you that you were actually an heir to great riches that you had never acquired? What if they told you that you actually had the map and the deed to your treasures and inheritance sitting on your nightstand your whole life? WELL,  unfortunately that is a true story for billions. The BIBLE is quite literally a TREASURE MAP.  IT IS A MAP THAT LEADS YOU TO GREAT RICHES AND WEALTH.
      In the Bible are the keys to living a life with purpose, a life of peace, and a life of abundance both now and in the everafter. So OF COURSE the devil is going to work very hard to ensure you don't ever read it! The devil doesnt want you to read the Bible, because he knows that if you do, you will have found the most valuable weapon of all time against Him, and your life will forever CHANGE.
        One of Satan's favorite lies to whisper in your ear is that God doesnt respond- thus leading you to doubt His existence. Its okay to admit this. Even though I grew up loving God- I sometimes had those thoughts creep into my mind;
 "Is he really there?" "Why doesnt he answer me?" or the worst;  "What if its all fake?"
BUT once I discovered THIS secret, I was able to banish those horrible thought forever.
    Want the secret??? Are YOU SURE?? Can You HANDLE IT????? Okay, I'll stop dragging it out.
 The secret is Romans 10:17: "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God."
So, essentially that verse is saying that if you don't read your bible, you won't have any faith. And a FAITHLESS person can never please God, and essentially live in His abundant life HE has for them.
 So let's delve into:

Enemy Lie Number One: The Bible Is Boring
      This is probably the greatest lie of all time. Did you know that the majority of MAJOR block-buster films are 'spin-offs' of bible characters, stories, and are chock-full of scriptural references??
Marvel comics, DC comics, movies like 300, Superman, Harry Potter, and too many to name. They swap out light for dark and 'VOILA' instant HIT! And most people never recognize this,
because, well, THEY DONT READ THEIR BIBLES. The bible is FULL of the greatest war stories, dramas, love stories, underdog stories, waiting to be read. So next time you
get ready to pick up a novel or a series, do yourself a favor and pick up the BIBLE. My PERSONAL favorites are the stories of Jacob and David. They bring me to tears
EVERY time. (Jacob's story begins in Genesis 25, and King David's in 1 Samuel 17)

Enemy Lie Number Two: I Dont Understand It

       Now this one is the ONLY one that can have validity, because the Word of God needs a special key to unlock itself. True understanding of the written word of God has to be REVEALED
to you through the Holy Spirit. But the good news is, the Holy Spirit and its wisdom is yours for the taking! Ask, and it shall be given! (Holler at me for more on this)
Now, if you're saying, NO, I just struggle to understand it- all those 'thou's and thee's and shalls'... 
Here is what I recommend: Reading the KJV alongside the ERV, or NIV. (all available on the Bible App)
I actually don't condone using other translations (video on that coming this week, make sure you subscribe to @noisyforgodmovement to catch that!) BUT they can
be useful tools if used correctly. So parallel the two alongside, or read the passage first in the ERV, THEN in the KJV. And in no time, you will catch on to the
lingo and be able to read KJV without additional help.

Enemy Lie Number Three: I Dont Have Time
       Listen!!! This goes without saying BUT i'll say it anyhow, If you use a social media account of any sort, or cable, or read ANY other books besides the bible
on a regular basis this excuse is not available for use, see other four excuses. However, if you are SUPER busy, having the bible app on your phone allows you to quickly
access the word while in motion, and the audio allow for easy listening which is even more convenient!

Enemy Lie Number Four: A scripture A Day IS ENOUGH
         This is simply not true, as you could live 100 years and on this regimen still be in Genesis, and thus missed out on all the BIBLE has to offer.
Now, you can certainly survive off of a scripture a day, if paired with regular BIBLE class, Sunday School, etc- but you will still be malnourished. I recommend
reading 'till life wont let you on a daily basis- and I have found that the more I read, the more I want to. Push yourself to read more than you did the day before, and You will soon develop an appetite for the Word of God.

Enemy Lie Number Five: You don't have to read the bible To be saved
    I could go IN on this one, but I will say this; HOW can one do anything correctly without reading the directions first? Choosing to go off popular opinion and our own intellect is RISKY business!!! How many things do we need to give attention
to that we err in, because we never read the manual? The bible lets us know not to trust our own judgement in Proverbs 16:25 - "There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to DEATH." Better to be safe (read the BIBLE) than to be sorry!
   SO in conclusion, let us ALL strive to be better steward of the Word of God. And in all honesty, reading your BIBLE will be a GAME CHANGER in your Christ walk!

I never understood why God was 'SILENT' until I read the WORD, at which point I realized that HE is actually SPEAKING very loudly!! I just wasnt listening. In this New Year, Lets Make Reading God's WORD a priority. After all, he IS the LIVING WORD. SO if you seek Him, Seek HIs word!!
       GOd BLESS!! And please LIKE< SHARE< COMMENT!!!!
Never be ashamed to be NOISY FOR GOD!!!
