GOOD GOOD FATHER BY CHRIS TOMLIN

 

I REALLY LOVE THIS SONG AND IT REALLY DESCRIBES HOW WONDERFUL AND LOVING OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN REALLY IS. I CAN’T SAY IT ENOUGH WHEN I SAY THAT, WHEN I BECAME BORN AGAIN AND SPIRIT FILLED, IT REALLY CHANGED SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME AND I’VE SEEN HOW MUCH GOD TRULY LOVES US NO MATTER HOW MANY MISTAKES WE DO. I ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU TO REALLY LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU COULD BE MISSING IN YOUR LIFE (TO BE BORN AGAIN AND SPIRIT FILLED), A RELATIONSHIP ONE ON ONE WITH OUR FATHER. GOD (WHICH IS MADE UP OF OUR FATHER, JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT) HAS SHOWN ME LOVE, LOVE AND LOVE FROM ALL THREE PARTS THAT MAKE ONE. BEING SPIRIT FILLED DOESN’T MEAN THAT I DON’T MAKE MISTAKES (I’M NOT PERFECT AT ALL, NOT EVEN CLOSE) BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES GUIDE ME IN WAYS THAT HELPS ME UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT HOW TO LIVE LIFE AND LEARN MORE ABOUT GOD. MANY TIMES PEOPLE WILL MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD IS SO MEAN AND IS ALWAYS MAD AT US BUT THAT’S NOT TRUE AT ALL. HE LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE SENT DOWN TO EARTH JESUS TO PAY FOR OUR SINS THAT HAPPEN IN OUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURES ONES. JESUS HAS SHOWN US THE LOVE THAT HE STILL HAD ON THE CROSS EVEN AFTER ALL THAT WAS DONE TO HIM AND HE JUST WANTS ALL OF US TO SPREAD LOVE TO ONE ANOTHER. WE ALL NEED TO DESPERATELY UNDERSTAND THAT THIS LIFE THAT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW IS NOT OUR TRUE HOME, OUR TRUE HOME IS IN HEAVEN WITH GOD. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND I HOPE THAT THIS HELPS SOMEONE THAT NEEDED TO HEAR IT, AMEN!!

ROMANS 8: 14-16        For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father”. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.   

 

 

GOD AND JESUS LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE……

I’M A PROUD MOMMA!!

Let me start by saying that I have two wonderful kids that are learning about God and how much he loves us! My daughter Isabella, has a wonderful connection with God that makes me so happy! She is 8 years old right now but she started getting close to God many years ago. She has thrilled me by giving me messages from God and showing me the love that God has for us!

The other day, my daughter came home after school and told me that she is making something on the paper and wanted to give it to me. I’m always happy when my kids make a drawing or write something for me, its very special! So, she gives me this paper and I read the beautiful message about God and I was just stunned! It said “GOD AND JESUS LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE. BE HAPPY THAT SOMEONE LOVES YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE”..

I definitely think this is a message that everybody needs to hear! I believe that God gave this message to my daughter so that we could spread it around to our Family, Friends and the Blog. The Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all about LOVE LOVE  AND MORE LOVE…

DON’T EVER FORGET ABOUT HOW MUCH GOD LOVES YOU!! WE ARE HIS CHILDREN THAT HE LOVES SO VERY MUCH! WE ARE WORTHY OF HIS LOVE, NOT BECAUSE WE DID ANYTHING BUT BECAUSE WE HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE IN HIM.

ROMANS 5: 1-2… Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. 

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!! 

THANK YOU FATHER, JESUS AND HOLY SPIRIT……. 🙂

Getting filled with the Holy Spirit…..

I can’t say it enough that when I got filled with the Holy Spirit, it was the most beautiful feeling in the world and I just wanted to go out and shout it from the rooftops that I have a connection to God and that he is my true and everlasting Father. God makes me feel beautiful inside and out. God is with me every step I do now. I know that God Loves me so much not like before when I used to think that God was mad or upset with me. God loves us all so much and he tries with every one of us to follow him. I would love for everyone I know to get filled with the Holy Spirit but unfortunately not every one believes the same thing that I do. God always shows me how he gives signs to all of his children in the world to come to him but they need to actually believe that its a sign from him and not just a coincidence. When I got filled with the Holy Spirit that was a change in the way that I thought. I had more love in my heart that I didn’t know was possible. I had love for people that I didn’t get along with. It was and is such a change for me and I know that the Holy Spirit guides me every day in every decision I make. I feel like I want to do better things than before. I know that even if I make mistakes or might do something that isn’t the best, I know that God loves me no matter what and that he will bring me back to the right path every time the Devil tries to lead me away. God knows how much the Devil can try to influence us to do bad things. We have to remember that the Devil wants to attack us more now that we have the Holy   Spirit because we have Gods power with us and that power is stronger than anything that the Devil can do. WE HAVE A PART OF GOD INSIDE US.. Its the most beautiful feeling to know.. I know that it took me 36 years to finally come to God and get filled with the Holy Spirit but its NEVER TOO LATE FOR ANYONE TO GO TO GOD…… BELIEVE IN JESUS AND OUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN…. JUST BELIEVE!! God has and still is teaching me about the Grace Message and God wants me to share that message with you all next time. GOD BE WITH YOU ALL….

God is teaching me about spiritual authority…

Many people in the world want you to believe that you need to have some kind of authority on you on every kind of situation in life but God is showing me that the only spiritual authority that should be over his children is ONLY GOD..  When we get filled with the Holy Spirit we have the ability to hear God better and we are also guided with the Holy Spirit on how we should live our lives. That means that we all have different calls in our life that God wants us to do. ONLY GOD KNOWS WHAT OUR CALLS IN LIFE ARE.. I hear people around me tell me that I need to listen to them and not the messages from God because they think that they can hear God better or that they know best for you. God does put people in our life for reasons at any given moment but that doesn’t mean that anybody needs to be over you and tell you what to do. We can GUIDE, ENCOURAGE, LOVE and BE SINCERE WITH EACH OTHER. Most of all Jesus just wants all of us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.. I used to be in a group of people that didn’t want to let me hear God on my own and it was keeping me from growing my relationship with God. God gave me many messages that taught me to listen to him and try to pick only the good things that people were trying to tell me. Now I love God as my true father and I can hear him give me messages. He teaches me many times about things that I need to learn and I wouldn’t of known this if I didn’t stand up for myself and listen to our true teacher JESUS. God will have me read the Bible and sometimes I will watch preacher on TV on a certain subject. God will always give me some kind of sign or confirmation so that I know that the message I’m getting is from him and not a bad spirit. Most important lesson I had to learn is that we have to discern every message we get because its very easy for a bad spirit to get in our heads and talk to us but we must always try to be careful and trust that God always shows us signs and confirmations. We all need to trust and have faith that God will show and teach all of us on his own but we have to truly believe it in our hearts that we are his children and that he loves us so much. The more I speak in tongues the more God teaches me and helps me spread his words.. Thank you Jesus!!  🙂

How powerful prayer is….

God wants me to talk about something that is very powerful, PRAYER IN THE NAME OF JESUS. When I was filled with all this love from God, I was still going to sleep and sometimes waking up and seeing this dark shadow in my room trying to scare me but it was different now because I know that Jesus is more powerful than any bad spirit out there in the world and anywhere. So, I would feel strong knowing that I have the Holy Spirit inside me and knowing that our everlasting father was with me and I would just tell the dark shadow  ” IN THE NAME OF JESUS I COMMAND YOU BAD SPIRIT TO LEAVE MY HOUSE “. Sometimes I would have to say it once and sometimes I would have to say it 2 or 3 times but when I did all of a sudden I would feel that the dark shadow was gone. I can really feel the power of the Holy Spirit and of Jesus working inside me but we have to always remember that it’s not us doing it, it’s always Jesus. We could never do anything if it wasn’t with the power of Jesus. I realized that I wanted these visits at night to stop because my daughter that is 6 years old would sometimes have bad dreams too. I truly don’t know if they are somehow related but I will tell you that I started doing something that made both of our bad dreams stop. I started to pray every night the same way ” IN THE NAME OF JESUS I BIND YOU BAD SPIRITS FROM ATTACKING ANYONE IN THIS HOUSE TONIGHT ”  and I would say it about 3 or 4 times until I felt like it was enough ( I also would speak in tongues ). Can I just tell you that ever since I do that we haven’t had a bad night. Last night I didn’t do it because I was distracted by something else before I went to sleep and my daughter came into my room in the middle of the night and woke me up because she had a really bad dream. To some people it could be a coincidence but I think that my prayers with Jesus’s name is very powerful and gives us peace at night. Now I’m just making this an example for everyone but I speak in tongues many times and pray for other things that God helps me with and I always say thank you before I even get it because I know that somehow God provides for us. It might not be in the way that you want exactly but he will provide us with what he thinks we need. I have been surprised many times with how God has shown me things that he has done for me supernaturally. I am truly blessed to have the Holy Spirit inside me and to have Jesus as my lord and father… 🙂

Beginning of my Journey

I felt so much love when I got filled with the Holy Spirit that I only wanted to do what God wanted me to do because he is full of love for all of his children. I think that a lot of people believe that God is this mean and harsh power that we have over us but he is totally opposite. Before I was born again, I didn’t feel any connection and just kind of thought that God was a judge but I have now the privilege to know that God is our true and very loving father. Yes, he is our father and with any father we do need to respect him and listen to what he wants us to do. We can very easily get distracted or taken over by the devil but if our faith in God is powerful then the devil doesn’t have a chance of getting us. I believe that we can all somehow hear God and know that we have to change some things in our lives. One big lesson that I had to learn was to discern the voices that are in my head. I had the devil trying so hard to convince me that all the love I have with God wasn’t really there (it was make believe) and that it was trying to put all these negative thoughts in my head about God. We also need to discern when someone is trying to tell us something about God. This is very important because I had to learn the hard way that I can’t just believe that all messages that people tell me are true and are actually from God. These people may have thought that the message they were giving was from God but it wasn’t. It’s easy for a new spirit filled christian to be easily pushed in different directions because all we want is God and we will believe and listen to anybody that says anything about God. God has taught me that fellowship is great but we have to understand that God wants to teach us all himself and he has, with me. I have gotten so many messages and signs from God and learned so much more from things that God wanted me to read out of the Bible or telling me to watch a show on TV that had a preacher teaching about something that I needed to hear(learn). I know this might be hard for some people to believe but with along the signs that I get from God I also get messages from God (through speaking in tongues). It’s amazing because I can’t even tell you how many times I have talked to God (through speaking in tongues) and he has said things to me that I needed to ask my mom what it meant because there were words that I didn’t know. This is why I believe that I can talk to God and I know for sure that he is always listening to all of us if we truly want him to hear us. WE HAVE TO BELIEVE IN GOD!!

When I received the Holy Spirit inside me

After all the signs that God gave me I knew that I wanted be Born Again and filled with the Holy Spirit and have this great connection with our Lord. So, I went to see my brother and ask him a couple last questions and I just knew that it was time for me. As he answered my questions I told him that I wanted to Born Again and I truly believed that Jesus could take all my sins away from me and that I am forgiven because Jesus went on the Cross for all that wants to believe. We are all Gods children but we just need to find our way to him. We need him in our lives to truly feel love and I didn’t realize that until I was filled with the Holy Spirit and my connection to our True Father God… My brother that day told me that he and his wife were going to pray over me and speak in tongues and that I needed to believe. When they were praying over me, the only thing that was going through my mind is that I wanted to be near God. I didn’t know what to expect when they stopped praying over me because I’ve heard of some people actually passing out or falling to the floor. I was sitting there and when they finished I felt like all my sins that I ever had was lifted and my body felt very drained. I didn’t feel like I wanted to jump up and down yet but my brother told me that I should speak in tongues and I did right away. He explained it to me in a perfect way of why I should speak in tongues. He told me that God wants us to speak in tongues because of course he is speaking to us but also its like when my daughter was a year old and started saying words and how I was so excited that she could talk to me. That’s how God feels about all of us when we are speaking in tongues because not only is he talking to us but we are speaking in tongues only for him because we love him and we want him to guide us in the way that he wants us to be. So, I went home and I felt still drained but I felt a sense of relief. I went to sleep and woke up the next day and felt like have never felt before. I was light as a feather and so happy with so much love for everybody. I couldn’t remember why I was mad at any one at all. It is the most beautiful feeling in the world. I was trying to speak in tongues with every opportunity that I could get. Now I had this connection with God (our Father), that I could actually feel and it was amazing. I felt like God filled my empty spots that I had in my life. I wanted to go out of my house and shout at the top of my lungs how great it feels to have Jesus in our lives. I didn’t do it because I know that at that moment there would be a lot of people in my life that would try to change my mind so I needed to be stronger in my faith before I could tell anyone that didn’t believe as I do.

My last sign before I got Born Again…

This last sign is a little hard to explain but I will try my best. Ever since I was a little girl I used to get these really bad dreams (at least I thought they were dreams). I would wake up in my bed but I wouldn’t be able to move or speak until whatever was happening to me was over. I will tell a couple different examples. When I was a child I would wake up in my bed (in my room) and couldn’t move but could see a big dark shadow of a monster coming on top of me and I don’t know how long it would last but it felt like forever. When this monster of a shadow was done scarying me then I could actually get up from the bed and run out of my room screaming. I would wake up thinking that there was something in my bed moving and my mom would check but nothing. My parents would always tell me that it’s just a night terror and that I have to believe that it doesn’t exist. I’m sure that they thought that I (being a child) was having bad dreams, well these attacks at night would happen until recently. I started just believing that these attacks that I was getting were just bad night terrors and that my brain had to be playing tricks on me because how could it really be true that I’m waking up in my room (frozen) and i have these dark shadow things attacking me. I learned that when they would happen I would try to just close and open my eyes many times and it seemed to work because in my head I would say that this is not real (repeatedly). So, I’m not sure when this particular night attack happen but this one lasted a long time. My husband and I have a Cross with Jesus on it, in our bedroom, on the side of the wall where I sleep. Now, this is going to sound really crazy but when I would wake up this time I wasn’t getting attacked instead I would have my eyes on the Cross but Jesus was changing into images of something evil and scary. Like now my attacks were against Jesus and whatever it was, it was trying to make to believe that Jesus was really a monster. Of course I would open and close my eyes as usual and think that whatever this is, its not true and then I would see Jesus back on my wall. So glad to see Jesus again.. So getting back to my last sign. I was talking to a couple of different people when I was getting my signs and over heard someone tell a story about how he used to get attacked in the middle of the night by bad spirits and when he explained his attacks they sounded almost exactly like mine. I asked him questions about it and thought he had to be having night terrors because how can we really get attacked by bad spirits. He made me realize that bad spirits do exist (by my first sign with my daughters dream from God) and the bad spirit was trying to convince me that Jesus was bad. When the thought that I was getting attacked at night by evil spirits, it really scared me but my brother told me that God was going to show me a sign that I’m safe. Now, still wasn’t born again yet so I didn’t still know what to believe but that night I went home and of course I didn’t tell any of this to my husband because he would of thought I was nuts. I wanted to make sure I truly believed before I talked to my husband about it because he was raised Catholic all his life and it would be hard for him to understand something like this. Back to that night, I was getting ready to go to sleep and I have to say I was so scared to wake up  to an attack because I knew than that they are real now but something interesting happen. I woke up scared as usual and but this time before I could get attacked my daughter came into my bed (at that exact time I opened my eyes) and I could move (to my surprise), let her in the bed and put my arms around her but all of a sudden I felt safe like nothing could touch me or hurt me. It was the craziest feeling ever but I knew that it must of been God to send my daughter in my room at that time to show me I’m safe with him and God loves me very much that he has given me all these signs. I will say that my daughter would come into my bed all the time but somehow it was different that time. I was convinced and I talked to my brother and told him that I was ready to get born again and I wanted to feel the greatness of having a connection with God, like I searched all my life for. Thank you God our Father. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Holy Spirit…. 🙂

Another sign that God gave me…

After God gave me that sign through my daughter I started to talk to my mom and brother more and started asking a lot of questions. I really wanted to have this connection with God but I was still skeptical about what they were saying about me having to be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. One part that I had a hard time with was speaking in tongues because I seriously didn’t understand and thought that it had to be something evil (not good) but of course, I was wrong because God showed me that it is in the Bible. So let me tell you how he showed me. Every night i used to sit on the floor of my kids room and wait for them to go to sleep and usually I would have my phone and either play a game or shop online. I would like to say that it was probably 2 or 3 days after my first sign that I was doing my usual sitting on the floor waiting for my kids to go to sleep and in my head I kept hearing something like “go to the Bible and read Acts“. I couldn’t understand why I kept hearing this in my head because I didn’t know much of the Bible and didn’t even know if there was a chapter called Acts in there. So I tried to somehow ignore what I was hearing because to me it didn’t make sense but finally I decided to put a Bible app on my phone and look and see if there really was a chapter called Acts. To my surprise the voice in my head was right and the two verses that stood out for me when I started reading were Acts 1:5 FOR JOHN BAPTIZED WITH WATER, BUT IN A FEW DAYS YOU WILL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. ACTS 2:4 ALL OF THEM WERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BEGAN TO SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES AS THE SPIRIT ENABLED THEM. I was in shock because only God could of been in my mind telling me to go and read these chapters. I was amazed and then knew that God was giving me these signs and that I really could have a connection with God. God needed to show me one more sign before i could be saved and I will tell you next time…
