We Shall Overcome By Our Testimony!

We overcome by our testimony

Praise the Lord everyone! Praise the Lord! Welcome to the Testimony Corner. As I mentioned in the previous post: (link) In Bloom: Testify to the goodness of The Lord! ,I would be setting up something for us all to partake in. As I give glory and honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for saving my life from myself, I thank Him for you and all that He has done in your life. We are family united by His blood. I look forward to hearing from your heart in your own words, song, inspiration or however you are led to share with the Body of Christ the testament of His faithfulness. Jesus says in the Book of Matthew chapter 18 verse 20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” I believe the Word in its entirety and we know that Jesus is the Living Word!

While I am trying to balance my morning with a sick kiddo, cleaning the house and thinking about how to do this Testimony Corner without making it complicated, I thought to share a cardboard testimony video with you all and to share a testimony myself in the comment box below. Please don’t be shy, uncomfortable or feel that your testimony isn’t worth sharing because it is! Do not allow the devil to steal your joy. Be free in Christ Jesus to share what He has done in your life or of someone you know.

God bless each and every one of you today! May His love pour over you like a sweet-smelling aroma coming down from the heavens, may His light shine into the deepest parts of your soul that it radiates for all to see!

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Psalms 34:8 NKJV)

Please bear with me as you may or may not see adjustments on my page! It’s not about the fancy-shmancy style, it’s about going viral for the Lord!

So let us share our testimony and be a witness to the whole wide world that we are not ashamed because WE OVERCAME!!

He Knew Just What I Needed (for a time like this)

Where mercy found me! Thank you Jesus for finding me and changing my life!

A couple of hours ago, I was sharing some encouraging scriptures and quotes on my Tumblr and Pinterest accounts while I was waiting for my son to get ready for football practice. We headed off and as I was driving, I was just soaking up God’s presence and had this pouring of love all around me. I smiled and just thanked Him again for waking me up this morning.

Let me back this story up just a little bit….

I woke up earlier to see my husband off to the gym and work but when I woke up, I woke up HAPPY! I thought to myself “I am actually still alive today! The Lord saw fit for me to be here another day. My goodnes it’s nothing but his mercy and grace that has me here! Thank – you – Jesus!”

Anyway, as I was dressing for the day, I checked my email. I had a “nasty-gram” question in regards to a picture quote I shared about God (posted below). I decided to answer him even though he told me that he did not believe in God and that he was still a very loving person, but that I could take my God loving quote and shove it up where the sun does not shine. (I tweaked his choice of words).

Ummm…… yeah. Now where in the world did that come from?!!

I said a prayer for him and then I had a few things I took to the Lord about responding to people in love as well as sharing the Gospel. There are many people who believe in God but do not have a relationship with him. There are many who do not believe in His exsistence at all. I cannot force my beliefs on anyone. I can only share my experience and lead them to the truth. God found me. I did not find him. I accepted him after realizing how much of a mess my life was without him.

We all have had different walks in life and how we came to know the Lord is a testimony in itself. God loved me first and forgave my sins. This is how I can love others despite cruel ways and nasty words and forgive them just the same.

Then it hit me…. this guy is searching for Truth. He isn’t mad at me. He does not even know me. I did not say anything to bash unbelievers. I merely posted something I found to be true. Maybe he has had some bad run-in’s with people who tried to force Jesus on him for all I know. Either way, he is lost in darkness and I pray that somehow and some way the Lord will provide an avenue for his love to consume the heart of this lost soul and that of others that they too will believe in the God who created the heavens and earth and reigns on his throne forevermore just as well as to repent, receive and develop a relationship with Christ Jesus.

I can’t say that the whole thing did not bother me though I really wondered what goes through the minds of those who reject and refuse to believe that God is real. My heart truly feels for them because they could be hellbound if their thought process does not begin to change. Sheesh.

So needless to say, I prayed as I drove back home. An awesome song came on the radio and just soothed my soul like a balm. How I wished I could have raised both of my hands in worhsip as I was driving! Instead, I worshipped in lip service and with a humble heart as the words sank in deep. I cannot get this song out of my head now so I thought I would share it with you all.

Be blessed one and all and take a moment to thank the Lord for a new day. You are still here for a purpose. Make the best of it and always seek his wisdom and guidance in all you think, say and do.

What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not! For He says to Moses, I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion. So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy. For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth. (Romans 9:14-17 NKJV)

Salt Shaker: Let Your Light Shine

Believers Are Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
( Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV )

We are in perilous times when our faith will be tested. Will you stand? Will you cower down and not say a word? Jesus is calling us out to keep our salt flavored and to use it; not to keep it covered or hidden. This is a mighty dark world we live in and it is not getting any better. Until our Savior comes back for us, be a light in the middle of darkness. Do not be ashamed and do not conform on any level.

HE’S NOT ASHAMED OF YOU SO PLEASE DON’T BE ASHAMED OF HIM

People are dying every day not knowing of Christ or the salvation he’s given. Those of us in Christ already know of his goodness and mercy and we can testify to that. It’s time to share in spirit and in truth amongst those who do not.

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), (Ephesians 5:8, 9 NKJV)
