"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

How many times have we said 'we are a nobody?' How many times have we thought that God has millions of other interesting people to be concerned about then little ole me and my problems? Sure God has millions of people to care for, but the clincher here is that He can care for us all at the same time.

God wants us to ask for His help. He would like us to ask for it often as He knows the attack of the enemy on our minds. That I can certainly contest to! The devil is not going to let up. He will try time after time, trying to break your will with your problems. Our weapon of defense is crying out to God to HELP ME!!! Asking for His strength in our very time of need.

Many times we let our pride get in the way and think we can handle a situation ourselves. But in order to have victory over our battle in our minds, we must realize we cannot do the fighting alone. We were not meant to. Pushing away our pride, hitting our knees and asking the Holy Spirit to infill us and strengthen us as we push on is the right course to set out on.

In the next coming days I will be facing, I believe, a turning point in my battle of people pleasing. I have made strides in this area, but it is far from over with! I am NOT NOT NOT looking forward to this at all. I am very fearful of the outcome of rejection and being hurt. I am even anxious as I type these words, as I know their truth! I want to run! But I know it is a done deal and a must to be completed.

This will be a big step. Other steps will undoubtedly follow. The emotional hurt may be bad at the beginning, as I slowly detach. Like ripping a scab off. Sorry...but that is how I can imagine it to be. But in time with God's help, the pain and infection will heal.

More than ever I need the guidance of the Holy Spirit in my life. His intervention in my life in this area has to be so real, that I know that I know! But, I have to be willing to invite Him in to strengthen me for battle. And I am willing to do this!! Oh yes!!

God waits for the opportunity for us to say, "yes Lord, I need you." He will not pry..... He waits patiently and hopes that an invitation will be extended. By His Spirit victory will come! Amen.

So, Victory Come!


  1. I don't know how God can keep us all straight, there are too many people on this earth.

  2. Good going JBR!!! GO FOR IT!!! Remember... "My strength is made perfect in weakness", HIS strength, our weakness... such an incredible promise, for JBR!



  3. May you win out in your victory along with God.

  4. Be blessed this week. Your blog speaks to so many people.

  5. you cannot help but win when you turn everything over to God.....no questions, no doubts just give it all to him.
    Trust him and all will be well. This could be exciting JBR, a win/win situation.
    Many blessings.......:-) Hugs

  6. I am sure GOD has HIS hands full keeping me straight....I don't know how HE has time to keep up with anyone else.

  7. You will be victorious sweetie, love you.

  8. Removing the scab, painful as it is, will help in promoting healing deep inside a wound. Praying for God's strength to cover you, His comfort to wrap around you at all times during that difficult process. Take care JBR. God bless.

  9. God can do ANYTHING!!!!!!! Short story: I was talking with my family about cremation. Present were my mom and dad, my daughter, my husband and me. My daughter said, "I am NOT burning up my mother! You can forget that!" Then my dad asks, "If you are cremated, how do you think you're going to be raised from the grave by God?" I told him, "God can do anything, even put all those ashes back together if He wanted to." Our Monsignor talked of cremation at Mass tonight, probably because we are building a Columbarium at the church. He says that the Vatican had a lot of trouble with the idea of cremation for years and years, but now, are resigned that it is not the actual, physical body that we live in now, but our spiritual bodies that will be raised. What do you think? I still believe, God can do anything, even raising me if I am worthy of it, and I'm trying to live a life worthy of His Grace.

    God is Your Rock .. take it with you to t. Stand on it, lean on it, ask what you need of Him. He will be there with you, as He is every second of every day of your life.

  10. Yes, let the holy spirit guide you.
    God bless you dear friend, my prayers are with you.
    Trust and obey for theres no other way to be happy...one of my favorites.
    Hugs and love to you !!

  11. Yes I need God, I want Him to be my side.Enemies were all round and they try to ruin me and my family in every possible way they can. But I have full faith in my God that He will raise me and my loved ones and bless us victory in every area of life.

  12. I'm really good at thinking I can solve all of my problems. But I'm learning to let go. God never disappoints. Love and hugs.

  13. Thus says the LORD to you: "Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battles is not yours, but God'sYou will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you."

    2 Chronicles 20: 15b,17

  14. Victory has come for you...and I am rejoicing with you over this victory and more to come.

    The battlefield for me is the "mind." I've been diagnosed with depression/anxiety disorder and am on the road to recovery as an alcoholic. Soooo, my mind races constantly. Bringing all those thought into captivity is a struggle at times to say the least. But the greatest prayer I can pray at times is just "HELP ME LORD," as He does help me, even though sometimes it doesn't feel like it, and I know He is helping you. Janie/Real Talk
