Do You Know How Much God Loves YOU?

Before the end of this unprecedented year, I thought I should post some encouraging words. As all of us have been dealing with Covid 19 and everything else that normally and not so normally comes up, I want to say, Don’t Give Up… God Never, Ever Gives up on us! 

Do You Know How Much God Loves YOU?

We may choose to go a different way than God but He will never give up, He will always be there for you. When you invite Jesus into your heart, you are asking someone who is the perfect friend to be part of your life, you can talk to Him all times of the day, if you ask for His help, which He loves, by the way, He will be there to not only help, but He is there to direct you to where you need to be, to give you the ideas, words, direction you need and SO much more. He cares about EVERY detail of your life, I mean EVERY detail.

But We Must Choose His help every step of the way and when we miss it, Get Back Up and try again because He only wants the best for you! God is not angry or displeased with you, Guilt and Shame are not of God, but of satan. God sees you through Jesus Christ’s works at the cross and when he sees you, it is through the filter of Jesus, it is not how bad you were but he sees YOU as His Beloved. All you need to do is recognize your failing or sin and then repent (which is turn away from it) and as God does not remember your sin anymore, you should do the same, God blotted it out and cast into the deep sea. So forget it and move on, the past is your past, leave it there in the past. Jesus died for ALL (past, present and future) sin so we can live under Grace which means unmerited favour. 

You are His Beloved and He is well pleased with you. Remember this, write it out, put it on your mirror, say it every day! You and I are His Beloved, Precious People and as you focus on this, you will see your life change. I know this has changed my life and I hope you take this to heart because I know it will change your life also. 

Something for you to do for the next week, is to get your bible out, mediate and write out these verse below, think about how this applies to you. what does it mean to you and others? How does this knowledge help you? How will you implement this into your life?

Ephesians 1:6-8 Amplified Bible
6 to the praise of His glorious grace and favor, which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [His Son, Jesus Christ]. 7 In Him we have redemption [that is, our deliverance and salvation] through His blood, [which paid the penalty for our sin and resulted in] the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance with the riches of His grace 8 which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and understanding [with practical insight]

Ephesians 1: 6-8 NIV to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,

Love Your friend, Mandie

PS. I would love to hear from you on what you loved and learned through this exercise. ❤ 🙂

Prayer to ask Jesus into your heart

The Power to Remove Worry and Anxiety.

The Power to Remove Worry and Anxiety, something I have been working with God, and believe is important in our walk in this life. My relationship with God is a friendship and it is super important to me. He is always with me and never leaves me nor forsakes me in the hard time or the times I turn and run from Him. This life is hard, you and I have a friend in Jesus (God) and I encourage you to run to Him in time of trouble, He is SO gracious, forgiving and loving. I know, because I have experience it and He LOVE You, God is Love.

Below is a video I did a while back but did not publish. Thank you for listening.

Refuse to worry, by placing your trust in God. Use your mouth by saying what God say in His word, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 King James Version (KJV) says,  “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” When you speak word out of your mouth notice your whole being stops to listen. When I or someone near me say “Yellow Dog” my mind starts thinking and seeing a yellow dog in my imagination.

The Word of God (The Bible) is the Power to Remove Worry and Anxiety. I challenge you all to get into your bible and find the promise He has for you, write them down and start declaring them over your life. We have a a list on this website to help you start, here is the link to the page called Mirror Exercises.

Thank you again for taking time to read and listen to the video.

Your friend ~ Mandie

The verses in the video.

Philippians 4:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Finally, [a]believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].

Psalm 138:8 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me

Colossians 3:15 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

I Am Not Pregnant

I send a link to Mary last week and she wrote a post on it. This is such a important issue… please read and be blessed…. Mandie

A Single Christian in a Married World Your world view? Or someone else’s?

I have been away from blogging for a while (since I for some inexplicable reason have nothing useful to say right now!) but I have come across something today that really deserves to be brought to attention.

My friend, Mandie (my source of media gems), sent me a link today from the Huffington Post.  It is a post by Jennifer Aniston in which she echoes some of my own sentiments about the disconnect about how the world thinks we should view ourselves and how we should actually view ourselves.

Is marriage or children or having a beautiful body or looking a certain way what’s most important?  And does it matter what people say about me, their comments on what I should or shouldn’t do, their opinion of my life choices?

Please read this blog by Jennifer Aniston and let me know what you think.

“A Hallelujah Christmas”

Christmas 2015

 “A Hallelujah Christmas” by Cloverton

I heard this song and knew I wanted to put this video on our blog. Mary and I have had a busy year and it is at this time year I like to remember what Christmas is all about. So please take a listen to this beautiful version of “A Hallelujah Christmas” by Cloverton and remember why in December we celebrate Christmas…


“A Hallelujah Christmas” by Cloverton from Ross Wooten on YouTube.

Live Life Now!

Live Life Now!

I hope everyone is having a great summer… it has been awhile since I shared and maybe I will do some writing soon.  Please bear with me. – Mandie

Want to share this because it is true and because I love this. Gods grace is sufficient and it is amazing! You and I need to remember this. 🙂

Philippians 3:12-14 (AMP) Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.

“Through My Father’s Eyes”

Fathers Eye

“Through My Father’s Eyes”

Okay, I know I chose to let everyone in my life and all the influences around tell me who I was for years. I chose to fear what others thought of me and I felt I could not live up to anybody’s expectations. I chose to listen to Satan’s distorted views and suggestions. I did not realize I could choose differently because I thought that was the way life was.

Well, I was wrong.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]. Proverbs 18:21

I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life… Deut 30:19

Talking bad about yourself is not the will of God.

For your iniquity teaches your mouth, and you choose the tongue of the crafty. Your own mouth condemns you, and not I; yes, your own lips testify against you. Job 15:5

What are you saying with your mouth about yourself?  Are the words you are speaking death or life, negative or positive, cursing or blessing? Is your mouth condemning you?  Are you choosing life with your words when it comes to yourself and others? Is what you want to say edifying God’s beautiful creation?  These are questions I ask myself on a constant basis.

It took me many years to figure out that when I put myself down, that I was speaking against God’s creation.  Which is me! Yes, me and you are created by God!

One thing I wish for every one of our readers is that you would see what and who you are Through Your Father’s Eyes, through God’s eyes, not through what the world thinks of you or what you “should” be or your earthly father thinks you should be.

 We know how much God loves us and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16 (NLT)

How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them, they would be more in number than the sand… Psalms 139:17-18

I don’t care what you have done, or said or did. JESUS LOVES YOU! Now you have to love yourself too.

All He wants is you to recognize Him as Lord and Saviour of your life and He will look after the rest, if you rest in Him.

Love this song below it is all about how God see us. Check it out!

“Through My Father’s Eyes”

by Holly Starr

So many days I listened to the voice inside my head
Never thought that I’d be someone who could be misled
I wanted the mirror to show me something I could not see
Needed explanations for expectations I could never reach

I know I’m not the only one who’s ever cried for help
And Jesus did for me what I could not do myself

He changed my life by changing my mind
He healed all that was broken inside
I’m loving what I can see with His spirit alive in me
I’m finding beauty for the first time
Looking through my Father’s eyes
(Looking through my Father’s eyes)

From what I see it looks like you don’t like yourself too much
When I hear you talk it sounds like you just feel like giving up
I know it’s hard to see through what this world will tell you
‘Cause misconceptions and false reflections will never be the truth

Just know you’re not the only one who’s ever cried for help
Jesus loves you in ways that you cannot love yourself

He changed my life by changing my mind
He healed all that was broken inside
I’m loving what I can see with His spirit alive in me
I’m finding beauty for the first time
Looking through my Father’s eyes

I can see your freedom coming
You’ll be a slave to nothing
When you see through my Father’s eyes

He changed my life by changing my mind
He healed all that was broken inside
I’m loving what I can see with His spirit alive in me
I’m finding beauty for the first time
Looking through my Father’s eyes

I can see your freedom coming (I can see your freedom coming)
You’ll be a slave to nothing (You’ll be a slave to nothing)

I’m finding beauty for the first time
Looking through my Father’s eyes
(I’m finding beauty for the first time
Looking through my Father’s eyes)

NO Strings attached

Are you casting your cares with strings attached so you can pull them back or are you casting your cares on God and trusting on Him, relying on Him and confident that God will look after you?

1 Peter 5:7 Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

Comment below… How do you do this?

So I did this video in April last year I thought I’d actually put it on the blog but I cannot find it.  So please take a couple minutes and listen to the video below. Thanks. – Mandie

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all! God bless you.


Merry Christmas!

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. [Isa. 25:1; 40:9-11; Matt. 28:18; Luke 2:11.]

The Word of God is Life

 God’s word is Life.

“John 6:63 (NKJV) It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”Bible Study 2

So the written Word of God is Life! Every time you take or speak the Word of God into your heart, believe it and  then act on it, the life of which Jesus spoke is released in you. You take a dose of the Word every time you read it and hear the Word out of your mouth or hear it preached.

We take the Word of God (Bible) for granted often, while other countries have never seen it. The video below is of a wonderful song call “The Word Of God” by Brentown Brown. Please take couple a minute and listen.
