Turning Point

Hey there. It’s me.. Terra. The stranger on the other side of this message that you are reading. I know we don’t know one another but I just wanted to share some words of truth and encouragement with you because I care about you and your soul.

Why you may ask? Because Jesus loves you so so very much and you need to hear it, feel it and believe it to come to that turning point in your life of surrender to Him. You need Him, I need Him, the whole world needs Him. We can have a life of eternity in heaven and all that comes with being loved, forgiven of all our sins no matter what we’ve done and become sons and daughters. We can have the true meaning of life while we are still here if we turn our lives around for good. Giving up our “old man” to live as a new person in Christ Jesus is worth it. It won’t always be easy but it’s well worth the change.

For too long we’ve grown accustomed to doing what we want to do, say what we want to say and live how we want to live for the most part. But at the end of the day it’s all meaningless if we don’t have Jesus in our lives. Will will that turning point come? There will never be a right time, right day or hour because the next second of breath isn’t promised to any of us.

I encourage you to reflect on your life and ask yourself how’s it all going for you. Now don’t be deceived by the lies of the devil or even your own thinking. How easily we are fooled. No matter how rich you may be, how well life is going for you because you “got this” down pact and life is looking pretty good from your angle you got it all!!! Right?? (Buzzer sound) I’m sorry but you are wrong. Now let’s flip it because you’ll still be wrong if you think you don’t need Him because you’ve struggled all your life, nothing good seems to come your way, you can’t catch a break and it’s as if you are living in hell mentally and physically. You may even believe that the most Holy God is not worth your time. You don’t believe in Him. You are your own god. Then again you may be giving your life to any false god and religion that you’ve known for years so that has to be right. It just had to be. Wrong again and again and again.

It is only Christ Jesus the Son of God who can turn your life around. He became flesh and died on the cross for all of our sins so that we could have eternal life and be reconciled back to the Father through His ultimate sacrifice. He didn’t have to come down from heaven where it was comfortable and life was all good but He did. No other god has done that. God the Father saw past our sins and saw our greatest need. We needed a Savior, we needed to be totally cleansed of our sins. In order for a relationship to be restored and our lives to be transformed and we are renewed in our thinking which in turn changes when we see with our spiritual eyes and love one another while showing mercy and grace because we’ve all made mistakes we must surrender a life of old for a life of new.

That turning point comes in and through Jesus Christ. Give it some thought. And if you believe anything I say in the least bit, I encourage you to pray and ask Jesus to come into your life, make Himself known to you even in your doubt because you want to believe. Step out in faith and try Him for yourself. We’ve all taken chances in various areas of our lives from what we believe on television, to what others tell us, what we’ve seen and heard to even following the crowd. We take chances on relationships without really knowing if someone is lying to us, foods and medications without truly knowing if they will harm us. Right? We believe in what we cannot see or know right away. I say all of this to give examples because it’s true. But at what point will change take place?

Turning Point. Choose life in Christ. I’ve tried Him for myself. You don’t have to believe me. You can try Him for yourself and I pray that you do because care about you and your life. Here on earth and for eternity.

God bless you, God keep you and may you come and accept His gift of Love.

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

‭‭II Peter‬ ‭3:10-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Seek Me and You Shall Find

Dear beloved one I come to you today thinking about you and your life. I’m wondering what position your heart stands in today. With all that you may have accomplished in life to this point or even if you’ve gone through some hardships as I believe we all have I would like to know is your heart with the Lord. I asked this question because nothing in this life is permanent. Nothing in this life will complete you except Jesus.

We strive and we strive to attain… we strive to make a better life for ourselves various ways but to no avail we are never truly happy. We just cannot seem to feel full. There will never be a time that any of us can say that we have it all unless we have Christ Jesus in our lives.

Oh how my heart cries for the world as a whole. I can’t help but express how deeply we stand in need of Him in our lives. Not just while we are here in this temporary dwelling here on Earth but also most importantly our eternity. Salvation is very much needed to make it to heaven, to praise, sing, worship and be in the presence of the Most High God never to be in pain again. To never have to worry about sickness, death, finances, sadness, worry, stress and so forth is a blessing. It’s a weight off our shoulders that one sweet day we will forever be free of such things. But while we are here we will unfortunately go through.

Don’t fret dear heart and kick the bucket and throw in the towel. In Christ we can get through life and all that it brings for the good and the bad. Please hear my heart cry for you. Allow your heart and mind to begin to grasp what I’m saying and attempting to convey to you. I love you though I don’t know you. Jesus loves you more. He went to the Cross because He loves you. He died for all of our sins. Every sin imaginable. We aren’t worthy but because of His love He did it. The Father wanted to reconcile us back to Himself but the only way that could happen is by sending His Son to earth to be the perfect sacrifice to separate us from our old life that has been polluted with sin to one that has been washed and cleansed in the Blood of Jesus.

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Today is a gift from God. The One True God and Heavenly Father. By no good deeds, gifts or works have any of us been given life today. It was by His choice and abundance of love for us that we are here. His mercy and grace runs deep though it should not be taken for granted. I pray you decide to make a change in your life for the greater good. If you don’t believe me try Him for yourself. I won’t turn back to my old life. There’s nothing back there for me no matter how tempting it may be.

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

I thought of you today as I was listening to praise and worship music. With such profound love I had to write you a letter. Enjoy the song below and allow it to infiltrate deep down into your heart to make a decision. I pray you choose Jesus and the blessed life you can have in Him.

Your future Sister-in -Christ,

Terra

Love is Calling You

Thank you Jesus for being obedient to the Father. You paid the ultimate price for my sin and that of the world in order that we may be reconciled back to Him, set free from the bondage of sin and to one day be with You in heaven for eternity. wp-image-2118270112

Without repentance and receiving salvation we are hell-bound. If you have been feeling the tug in your heart to do away with living life in sin, (which doesn’t have to be so great as killing someone. We are born of sin nature and that alone separates us from God.) then I encourage you today to ask Jesus Christ to come into your life, clean you up on the inside and to live a life unto Him.

Repent of your sins, believe that He died and rose from the grave 3 days later and now sits at the right hand of the Father. He wants to welcome you into the Kingdom. All the angels in heaven rejoice even over 1 person getting saved. Just imagine your name being cheered in the heavens! We as the Body of Christ welcome you and rejoice over you when you decide to give your life to Jesus.

Many are here to support you here on the blog, in your community, workplace and even the church. I pray you take comfort in knowing that you are loved by many especially by the Lord Jesus Christ.

God woke you up with purpose. A great one you have yet to experience in Him. Allow His love to bring you into a relationship with Him by surrendering to His precious One and only Son, Jesus, who died for you. He calls you friend whom He loves dearly.

 

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 

John 15:13 NKJV

 

Choose today what life you want to live. Satan is good at masking sin and feeding us lies. We have been given the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us day to day. Come to Jesus while you still have life in you. God bless you…

Terra

Without Jesus my life is meaningless. No treasures in this world can outweigh the priceless gift of salvation and a eternity of joy in heaven with Him. Day to day He will be never to leave nor forsake you. I’ve tried Him for myself. Try Jesus for yourself and see that He can and will make you whole.

Choose Joy

Choose what you will but remember that each choice will either help, hurt or hinder you from growing. I Choose Joy and His name is Jesus. My life, my happiness, all that I am and do is found in Him. No one or nothing else. People will fail you because we ALL make mistakes and are far from being perfect.

Life happens and can change from one minute to the next. Today is a gift from the Lord even if it started off bad for you. You are alive and breathing, right? You have a roof over your head, clothing on your back, food in your mouth and obviously a phone/laptop/computer to read this message. Someone is mourning a loved one who didn’t wake up to a new day, someone is stressing how to make ends meet, someone is worrying over a child who didn’t come home last night.

 
With all that is within you, I encourage you to choose Joy today while blood is still running warm through your veins. You can walk, talk, and live in the truth. You have more than some in this world. You are blessed even if you don’t see it or realize it. 

Jesus and the gift of salvation that He paid the ULTIMATE price for us all is the best thing that I could ever attain. Without Him I could not write something positive even when I am going through a hard day. Without Him, I cannot be the best wife, mother, friend and neighbor to the best of my ability. 

Many are about self but I am called to be selfless and to help others and love on them and to let them know that they too have the freedom of choice. 

Choose this day how you want the rest of your day and life to be. It’s not up to anyone else. You have the power and control to filter what goes in and out of your life. 

God bless you this day and all that He gives you for tomorrow isn’t promised to any of us. 

In Christ, 

Terra 

Happiness Today Is A Choice 

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are  noble, whatever things are  just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are  lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there  is any virtue and if there  is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Philippians 4:8 NKJV 



I tend to smile A LOT!!! It’s part of who I am and I can’t help but try to bring a little happiness into the lives of others through my perspective. I tend to be optimistic about life and I trust Jesus Christ with my life. My happiness is in Him therefore I choose not to live life negatively.

Too much in the world that brings sorrow so why not look up and enjoy yourself right where you are. Today is a present and tomorrow isn’t promised so choose wisely what to filter in and out of your life.

Be blessed and encouraged one day at a time. 

That’s all you can do. ❤

This Christmas: Praying for the Nations

This Christmas…

Praying for the Nations and how the Lord will lead His people to bless them, to share the Gospel with those lost, those walking in darkness and many who chosen to reject the Truth.

This day, this hour, this season.

Pray. Seek. Ask. Listen 


Oh how my heart yearns for the salvation of many this day, this Christmas season. Jesus is the greatest gift any person can receive that will last and stands the test of time. He will not fade, there is no new program or upgrade. He’s the same past, present and future. The latest and greatest gadgets, fashion and material possessions will be forgotten. Some will attain such things and some will not. Are they really worth stressing over this holiday season? No, but it’s done anyway.

 
My heart is for the Nations. I can’t help but pray and seek guidance in what to do. My mind travels to far away places wondering what groups of peoples have never ever heard the name Jesus. Have never ever heard the Gospel or given the opportunity to receive the gift of salvation.  Many will perish because of lack of knowledge, many will perish because they choose to not receive. How this hurts my heart.

 
Some nights and days I have to just go before the Lord pleading with Him over such people. I literally begin to feel my eyes well up with tears for those I have never laid eyes on let alone know where they live. I care. I can’t help but care because when this life ends we all will be somewhere for eternity.

 

Jesus Prays for All Believers 

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;  that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.  And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:  I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.  O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.  And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:20‭-‬26 NKJV

 

Sharing this message with you all was just presses upon my heart. What you do after reading it is between you and the Father. Many lives are at risk. While it’s a personal decision one must make to take that step of faith to receive salvation we that belong to the Kingdom can play an active role somehow right where we are. I desire to do missionary work afar off but it may not be my season. Perhaps my work can be done right here where I live. The homeless, the women and children who are prostituted that begin to accept this life as acceptable, those on their death beds, those living a life of crime, those living for gods that are false. Many are spiritually blinded with hardened hearts and deaf ears. Oh that the scales would come off.

 
Today is just a raw moment to wear my heart on my sleeve and ask each and every one of you to pray and see what the Lord speaks to you, to see how you can take part in a matter that truly makes one appreciate the Life given to us so that we can be a part of His family.

 

Forever.

 
So let’s all pray for the Nations so that they too can be a part of the family. To celebrate Christmas for what and Who it’s really about.

 
From my heart to yours with love,

Terra

Thank you Lord….. Hallelujah.

Even if we are walking in the valley, Lord you are there. if we are perplexed in our mind we need to only be still. let us listen for the soft voice beckoning us to the reason of truth.

Bless you Lord.

May we acknowledge that You are Truth and our guiding Light. Our heart and minds can become so polluted with doubt and anxiety. Let us look above and receive in Jesus’ name.

Psalms 121:1-2 NKJV
I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord , Who made heaven and earth.
