"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!

This is too bizarre to pass up telling. As I have been sharing in the past that healing and prosperity are ours. Jesus took care of this on the Cross along with taking care of all our sins. What Grace! What a blessings.

Okay, besides me believing that I have been healed from the top of my head to the souls of my feet, I have been asking for God to provide for me supernaturally financially. Not saying that I will retire, I am believing that God already has my wonderful job waiting for me. The supernatural money came in last week. In the form of someone paying off my remaining car loan! Praise the Lord. Hallelujah!

As all good that was, I find what happened this morning even more of a blessing......

Last week I bought a carton of eggs. Been using them up basically every day. There were two remaining today. So, I take the eggs out and there was one dime at the bottom of the carton where one of the eggs sat. Woo-hoo and Weeee! I then threw away the carton.

Sure a dime is a dime. But, it certainly comes in handy when things are tight now a-days for me. I thanked the Lord, and put the dime aside on my dining room table. Then my flesh got a hold of my mind. Trying to reason this blessing out. "Maybe I had change and accidentally dropped it into the egg carton (cannot figure out how that could be as those cartons are pretty sealed)." That possibility did not last long in my mind and I proceeded to boil the eggs. Poured the remaining water out after they were done.

Then eating breakfast, I quickly scurried outside to get a quick walk in before the "rains" came. Returned about a half hour later, just in time to beat the down-pour. Went to do the dishes. After rinsing out the pot I boiled the eggs in, there lies in my sink's drain (of all places) another "dime." Huh? What is this? My mind was spinning.

I quickly walked to my dining room table. There was the first dime. Had not moved from its spot I put it in earlier. Now my flesh was really taking a spin to figure this second dime out. "Did I boil it with the eggs? How could I have grabbed the eggs and put them in the water without seeing or feeling the dime? I do not know." Baffled. But, should I be baffled. No.......

I do not take things lightly anymore. This may gross some of you out. It does for me. (This is when I really wish I had a husband). But, last night after returning home early from a worship service feeling miserable with a pinched nerve, I was greeted by three vibrant Big Brown Palmetto Roaches (cockroaches) on my kitchen floor as I entered my abode. A fourth one scurried between my feet and went out my kitchen door. The others who knows where they went. I know where I went. Crazy! I cannot stand them critters. I felt last night tremendous enemy attack. Physically and from the grosses vermin insect in my opinion to deal with.

Equally gross, after about two hours from finding the dimes, what do you think I see on the ceiling of my living room. Two of the three Palmetto Roaches. Got them. But, there is still one remaining.....

I do not take insects, especially nasty ones lightly these days. Especially when I have not seen a cockroach in my place in over a year. Then to find four and then to find two dimes this morning. Sure there may be no connection. But, when weird stuff happens all of a sudden one right after another, you get to thinking of the significance. Just feels these last fifteen hours at my home have been filled with good and evil.

Anyway, I went too long in this story. But, I wanted to share. So, regardless of the amount I was blessed with this morning, I am twenty cents richer. Also shows me that God cares. I wonder what other treasures lies a head for me......


  1. I think the physical rain you had is also significant of the spiritual rain and provision the Lord is pouring out on you. There's more to come, I'm sure of it.

  2. God reminds us not to fear...It's not from Him but we are given His power! I wonder where the "dimes" will fit in in the future days ahead as I see it as God's reminder that He truly is with you. As I also go through a tough battle at work, I don't even desire the permanent position anymore that they took away from me. They can take everything I have, but what matters all I have and will always have is God with me...And glory be to God! He alone is our All in All...

    I don't want you to think that I didn't listen to the cockroach part...I just know no matter how the spiritual enemy try to scare you and disable you in any growth God intends for you, God Who is Able is always in control! So, just keep focusing on His "grace" and love. Take care JBR!

  3. someone once told me
    that when surprises come in twos
    that it's a sign
    of God's increasing favor...double portion.
    Sending you double portion favor
    ....double portion
    for all the trouble
    you're coming through
    and into
    double the bounty,
    double the blessing,
    double the joy
    double the provision
    double the inheritance of peace.
    Happy happy
    for for

    Yuck about the bugs....
    The dimes are amazing...


  5. A nice reminder that God is to be found in all the storms of life, no matter how small that reminder is, He is there if we look for Him.....

    JBR your life seems not to have a dull moment in it these days. Quite interesting turn of events. Go with the flow. See where God is leading you. God Bless.

  7. Icky poo on the roach bugs. Hate em' to. Don't know what's up with the dimes tho.

  8. Awesome post. God is doing something amazing in your life. Stands to reason there's some 'opposition' heading your way. It won't succeed if you keep your eyes fixed on the Almighty. Keep faithful, Grace. With love C

  9. Gross bugs...the one thing I didn't like about Florida. They seem to like to live there. Great stories of God's provision through paying off of car and dimes. I believe God stays silent for awhile so our faith increases. When you can't see, your sense of hearing improves.

  10. Lol on the dimes! I'd be surprised to find one in an egg carton too! No lol on the bugs :(

    What was Noah thinking! Cockroaches, lice, mosquitoes? Couldn't he have skipped those critters? I think the lice copped a ride on his beard.

    I'm glad God is providing for you through your loan being paid off and the "pennies from heaven". Yours were dimes, but the expression "pennies from heaven" is one used when God takes care of the little things too and not just the big ones.


  11. I was going to say "good and evil" but you beat me to it. Oh yeah. satan is always right there waiting.

  12. I think this is much like your post the other day when "something" was telling you something. When things like the dimes happen that strike you as unusual blessings, I think they really are gifts or messages of some sort from God. And yes, Satan can send us messages as well.

  13. Your car loan was paid, what a blessing!
    That is some story on the dimes. As far as those bugs, I don't like when that happens.
    Hope you don't have them visiting again anytime soon. ((HUGS))

  14. God for you JBR. It was Jesus got the coin from the fish 's mouth lol.

    I battled ants with pesticide and spray gun Ha!

  15. Thanks (((JBR)))..God Bless You.
