As Christians, we need to encourage one another to live by godly standards and resist the pull of the world. ~ Mama Joyce
You know who you are. ❤
God: I have a new pain in my head.
It is 2:40 am. Everyone is sleeping in my house.
I just asked You for the strength to get dressed and get up to take some organifi. It’s all I could think to do.
Im scared that MS is forming a new schlerosis in the posterior left of my brain.
Up an c dressed, i found that my young adult son happened to be up and have some water ❤ ready to stir the organifi powder into. ( He was just going to drink it, I assume. ….Wait…. That’s rather remarkable, God. The timing. Wow.)
I’m so sick of all the chemicals which well-meaning but ignorant modern medicine folks are pushing at me because of my disease! Help me. Jesus rescue me!
You know what I need. What plants will help. Tell me.
I keep hearing Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor. BDNF. from Organifi. ok…Help me to afford this Lord. My hubby has not wanted to let us spend this money. My insurance won’t pay for alternative meds. (Though they will pay for the shots at $6000 a month which have all kinds of side effects. Thin Smile.) I think it is $80 a month for the BDNF. PLEASE provide this for me God.
Also: the message at church ⛪ yesterday! ( Elevationchurch.org guest speaker ~ 1st Sunday in September)
I felt like it was just for me. I feel like I’m in a solitary battle for my family and my health. I feel kinda picked on, in truth.
i declare this: I’m not picked ON but rather picked OUT.
Just for right now, the organifi nutrition is helping: my head pain is lessening.
getting sleepy. I will take my ashwaganda Valerian gummies. Just a sec…..
Not panicking. What’s the worst thing that can happen? OK. I’m imagining that. Now I’m putting You in that picture. ❤
I can do this. This is how I fight my battles.
Thank you Jesus. Help all the sick people and lonely people and sad people who are up facing battles alone, too, tonight.
Thanks for your
presence with us.
Each person that wants You.
Kicked the devils face in ~ beating him at his own game. at Calvary. (Gen. 3 ~ He [the Offspring] will crush his [the snake`s] head and he will bruise Your heel… emphasis mine)
JESUS. GOD WITH US. EMMANUEL.
You are the God who sees me.
I love You ….. so I’m not alone.
No matter who’s sleeping right now.
Thought from the lovely Tauren Wells this morning.
“Alignment is an important part of the Christian life
Its how we steer a straight course.”
- Girlfriends asleep
- Family asleep
- Hubby asleep
- Dogs asleep
- Quiet house
- Flu-like autoimmune symptoms
- Already slept off my sleep aid
- Maxed~out on ibuprofen and Tylenol for today
Here I am Jesus: it’s just me and You.
I need You; that’s flat.
I remember others who are wakeful at 3am:
- inmate who is stuck with the choices he made when he was too young to know better
- mom of small ones. Who is up with a croupey baby again, has to get up for work in the morning, and is dreading it (*note; discover plod mode)
- cancer patient: sick of that inescapable, omnipresent too familiar bed
- prisoner in a foreign country, denied pain medication because “he is an unbeliever” (and therefore untouchable).
- homeless person whose newspapers and coats are not enough to keep him warm this time.
- psychiatric inpatient whose night mares make her fear sleep and who misses home
- care home patient ~ the empty ache of the seemingly forgotten
- woman post-abortion ~ empty arms
Can I pray 🙏 for us?
Jesus thank You for the good and the bad things in our lives. Thank You for small indestructible joys. Help us to get all the good there is to be had out of our suffering. Enlarge our souls to understand the great ocean 💙 of Your cleansing, pure, full, restoring love 💘 for us.

Because that’s who I am 🌼
I was looking back through my notes about Q, wanting to give the people that i care about an update.
A huge difference.
God has brought my man on board. He has spoken to him about Q and his mental issues and how he can help. It’s making a huge difference.
Q getting a diagnosis has seemed to really help unlock some help for him too.
Ummm…God had a talk with me about prayer and fasting. Out at the wood shed.
I am not going to just pray this issue away.
My bulldozer tendencies, that have served me so well in the past, will not be needed.
More teamwork and trust; less bossing.
Jesus wants us to go through this experience not blow it to smithereens.
I had to do some backtracking with J and my man, telling what He (the Lord) had said at the woodshed. (It was very humbling. Gulp.)
It seems that (in direct answer to our prayers) God has been doing all sorts of things between those two, father and son. And between Qs twin and himself, and in his relationship with his next sister.
Im glad i didnt know about it and it snuck up on me, because I definitely would have messed it up.
God and I like my courage and audacity….But I can be a bit bossy and interfering at times. And my hubby already finds my formidable feminine competence and verbal skills a bit intimidating in his flesh~you know what I mean?
So yeah. God is doing stuff, but mostly not the way I expected..
The transformative power of well-managed anger improves relationships
How can anger improve the quality of your relationships?
…. Anger doesn’t want you to contain it;
this emotion informs you of what bothers, hurts, or harms you so you can change it.
Ready to listen
to change things
It wants you to act.
Goal: to improve your life.
