My blog page is a place where I'm serving the Lord through encouraging others.

About Me

My photo
Bullhead City, Arizona, United States
I am a 50 yr young disabled woman with many chronic painful physical afflictions & a illness. I am married to a wonderful man with 2 adult children. I grew up in & out of church. One of my Uncles is a recently retired Pastor . I have been saved since 1996. I love serving the Lord & fellow-shipping with my church family,family/friends! I started this blog because I was inspired and encouraged by a couple of friends blogs and felt the Lord prompting me to start a blog page after our Women's Retreat in August 2009 to use the gift of encouragement he has given me to journal what he is doing in my life and to pass on to others articles that encourage me and help me in my walk with the Lord. My prayer is that you will feel the love of Jesus and that you will be inspired and encouraged by my post. I'm just a servant Girl and a Broken Vessel called to be a Heiress of Light for the Lord. The things I post will be from my heart and things that speak to my heart. Sometimes I will just journal about Life,Family etc. My prayer is that my blog will be a source of encouragement to all my friends, family members and followers.

Dear Friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12-13) 

Are you facing troubles so difficult you feel one tiny straw more added to your load could cause you to break? Do you find no matter which way you turn, there is no escape and the walls of tragedy are closing in? 
Tell it to Jesus.
When you bolster all your strength and courage and try to carry the load, do you succumb to it instead and crumble beneath the weight?
Tell it to Jesus.
Think of how Jesus carried the cross and took upon his shoulders the burdens of all humankind. Jesus didn't remain under that load. He went miles beyond the cross. By dying and rising from the grave, He set us free from all this.
He invites us to take His yoke upon us so he can make our burdens light. When we do this, we allow Him to shoulder our load. Before Long, we learn to synchronize our actions and motives within His will. The massive burdens may not lift right away, but be assured Jesus is near. In the same way He carried His Cross, He helps us carry our loads today.

                                    Taken from the book:
                        "WHEN GOD SEE'S ME THROUGH"
                             Devotional Thoughts on God's
                                   Faithfulness for Women
                                 BY ANITA CORRINE DONIHUE

                               LEAVE IT THERE:
                         Leave it there, leave it there,
                        Take your burdens to the Lord
                                  and leave it there.
                        If you trust and never doubt,
                       He will surely bring you out.
                       Take your burden to the Lord
                                and leave it there.
                          (CHARLES A. TINDLEY, 1916)

                     MAKE MY BURDENS YOURS, LORD
These burdens I carry are too heavy for me to handle any longer, Lord. I am going to break under the load. Shoulder them with me, I pray. Make my burdens Yours.
             I don't have to worry about giving you a load that's too heavy. You, Lord, are greater than all. Now I wholeheartedly give You this burden and thank You. I already feel relieved, as though hundreds of pounds have been removed from my shoulders.
In Jesus Name Amen.

The Crown that I wear does not tarnish;
It's not made of worldly ores. I don't need to polish and store it in a vault or behind metal doors. The Crown is a gift from my Father whose Son died so that I could be free. What a honor it is just to wear it, For His last thoughts on Earth were of me. The Crown has speacial meaning; It's not about worldly success. It stands for the Love of My Lord and Saviour,Which I wear every day like a Princess.
