Two quick stories from my adventures with Jesus:
I heard about a teen girl that was really sick and maybe going to die in California a few years ago, so I hoped in my car and drove there alone on my birthday.
I showed up at the house and had never met any of them, but they asked me to come in and share with them what God had for them to hear.
I was totally freaked out and thought I was gonna be a big disappointment to that family, but Jesus is the healer and I just had to step out in faith and believe for her healing to manifest. She was healed and helping others a week later.
I went to the hospital about six months ago to pray for a man in icu that I didn’t even know his name, and I went alone because it was a friend’s brother and they said he was gonna die. I wasn’t even sure if I was praying over the right person that day, because no one was there but me and the nurse. I saw the life come back to him as I spoke to him while he was in the coma.
They tried to say he was going to be taken off life support a few days later, and I got mad and began crying out to God to save him!
I said, “God, you said that these signs would follow those who believe, they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover! I did that and I believe, so that man has to be healed, because it is written truth!”
I then added, “let him wake up and look right at his sister, so she knows they are not to pull that plug of life support!”
As I was speaking I felt something break, and my head was pulled upward as if to be looking into my Father’s face, and it was over. The man was healed immediately!
He did exactly what I prayed! He woke up and looked at his sister. The man is totally healed and left the hospital a week later.
God is good!
When you are an obedient soldier, you do as you have been commanded, but what happens to the soldier that has taken so many hits that they can’t stand anymore?
I was out driving one night and the Holy Spirit had me stop to help a person sleeping under a bus stop bench. It was around 11pm, and I had to park my car and walk over to this person through some bushes and a ditch. It was one of those times when I wanted to find a way out of this, because it seemed like a lot of work that could end up being an unsafe risk. The Holy Spirit would never lead me into a dangerous area that I wasn’t equipped to handle, but I was debating this assignment for awhile.
Finally I had the items that I was going to bring the person and I prayed over them and decided there was no getting out of this, so I put on my big girl pants and made the short hike to where the man was laying behind the bus stop bench. As I approached him, I could hear what seemed to be sobbing. Instantly my heart ached to help him.
I walked over and placed some water, money and scripture cards and a book on the ground. I whispered, “I brought you some water and other items to help you. God bless you!” He reached out his hand to take them, and I saw that he was a soldier with military attire. He was really big too, but with a soft voice he said, “Thank you so much. This means more then you will ever know.”
I had never been at a loss for words as I was right then. All the people that I usually help are drug addicts, prostitutes or people that have no self esteem or confidence, but this guy looked like a navy seal and someone that was known as a brave and strong soldier. How could I possibly have any words or advice to give him?
I started to walk away, and I let him know that he was not alone and that the Lord had sent me to help him. I told him to read the book that I brought, because it would help him get through the struggle he was facing. He said that he would read it and thanked me again.
I drove away and prayed for him with tears pouring down my own cheeks. I thought about how many people would have jumped at the chance to help this brave soldier if they had only known the battle he was facing alone that night. Then I realized that we are all facing battles everyday and most of us would rather die then have to share the things that are tearing us apart inside.
I heard a pastor preach on pride shortly after that, and he said that pride was how Lucifer fell and that we were not to have pride. He claimed that anyone who doesn’t confess their wrongs to another person is in pride and will fall. I realized that night when I was instructed to help that soldier behind the bus stop that God wasn’t going to make anyone fall, but He would lift us up with His righteous right hand and keep us from the evil one that would try to cause us shame, fear, anguish and misery.
It is of great value to have an intimate relationship with the Lord and not just follow what a church leader tells you about God. God can’t be contained in a box or a religion, because no one can fully know all that there is to know about Him, but He does invite us into a sweet adventure with Him to grow in our understanding and expand our thinking to rise up in Love.
In the middle of the scorching AZ summer heat, there lay a man sleeping on the sidewalk beside a circle K at a busy intersection in North Phoenix. I saw him from my car as I was waiting for the light to change, so I did what any normal person would do, and I darted three lanes over to access the turning lane. I quickly flipped a U turn and zipped into the parking lot. I stared at the young man for a minute to see if he was breathing or not, because the temps were around 116 at this point and there had been several deaths in the few days prior to this, because of excessive heat, so I wasn’t sure what to do. I asked God to help me and I jumped out of my car and headed over to the man’s body.
I woke him up and tried not to startle him too bad, because all I knew about him was he was homeless and he had a lighter near him with a grocery bag.
He had a little blood on his chest but he said he was fine.
I asked if I could get him anything, besides the cold drinks and money I just gave him. He asked if I had a cigarette, and said, I am sure you probably don’t have one. I laughed and went to my car and pulled out a pack of Marlboro lights that I had bought on a recent trip to the casino. I didn’t really smoke cigs anymore, but I always liked to be prepared for any emergency moments.
He asked me what church I was with, and I told him that I wasn’t with a church, but I had come to help him with asking God for what he needed.
I prayed for him to have the doors open for help with work and a place to live. Then we talked for about fifteen or twenty mins about his childhood and family.
He had a rough start for sure, and he believed all the bad things people said about him, and he thought he was never going to be able to do anything because of those negative beliefs wounding his soul.
Soon a man in a pick up truck pulled up right in front of where we were sitting on the ground. The guy thought I knew him, because the man was waiting for us to finish talking so he could talk to him.
As I was leaving, I looked at the guy by the truck and I told the young man on the ground that God had sent the man to help him with what he would need next.
I don’t know why I was so confident about that, but I truly believed that God had answered my prayer that quickly and the 23 year old young man was going to have a new life.
I never saw him again, but when I looked into his eyes, I saw Jesus, and that was not the first time that happened while I was helping a total stranger.

One night I was exhausted and had poured myself out all day and night to the afflicted around the Phoenix Valley, and I just wanted to go home, but I had to stop for gas.
As I was pumping the gas, I could feel my body being turned towards the gas station entrance, and I was forced to look at a young couple sitting on the ground outside the gas station. (I say forced to look at, because God’s Holy Spirit had pulled my body and eyes to look and take notice when I just wanted to be blind and going home).
The young couple needed help, but I didn’t think I had anything left to give financially or physically. I tried to ignore the tugging on my body, but it was a tugging that was more persistent than ever before in the past, so I got my gas and pulled up to the front of the store to see how I could help them.
As I sat on the ground with them and began talking, I learned that they were both from the foster care system as many of the people on the streets that I help are. They had a baby that was in state custody, because they were homeless. They needed help, so they could get their baby back, but neither of their families cared or were willing to help them, so they were forced to beg on the streets.
They were working out a plan to get on their feet, but they couldn’t seem to get that little boost they needed to break free from the oppression of poverty and a victimized past.
I prayed with them and told them to keep asking and praying, because God would provide everything they would need if they only asked Him. As I was talking a man came over that looked like he would never stop and help anyone, but he told the guy to come in the store with him and pick out some food and whatever they needed and he would pay for it. It was funny, because the guy really wasn’t even that nice about it, but it was obvious that God was forcing him to help the young couple also.
As they were shopping, I was sharing God’s love with the broken girl that was ready to give up after losing her baby and spending her life in foster care suffering trauma after trauma. She didn’t want her child to have her same fate. I asked what they needed to get a motel room for the night and they said $40, or something like that, but I only had $42 left after going around helping people all day, and I hadn’t eaten all day. I was planning to get some food on the way home, and I needed to keep one of the 20’s, so I gave them $22, and told them God would provide the rest.
Well He did, but it wasn’t how I thought. As I walked to my car, another person approached me and asked me for a dollar to get gas. I explained that I gave my last few dollars to the couple on the sidewalk, but I could run my credit card for him to get some gas. He said no, and walked away really sad.
Of course, it broke my heart to see anyone in need and not have help, so I pulled out my last 20, and told the guy on the sidewalk that I found another twenty that I would give to him if he would take the two dollars that I gave him and give it to the man at the gas pump. He was happy to do it, because that meant he would now have the $40 that he needed for the motel room.
I watched him give the two dollars to the man, and I saw a person getting gas reach into his wallet and pulled out enough money to cover the rest of the man’s need for gas.
This was over a year ago, and I really can’t recall all of the details, but I remember leaving the gas station happy and annoyed. I was so hungry and tired, and I was complaining half the way home to God, but God never said a word.
I couldn’t understand in the moment what God was doing. All I could see was how my bank account was empty and I had to give the last of my money away to strangers when I was starved and exhausted, so they could eat and get a motel room.
Did I really starve that night? No, I went to in and out burger and used my credit card for food. I thought how could God want me to rack up my credit cards all the time so other people could be blessed and I would have to suffer. I didn’t realize at the time that less than a year later all of my credit cards and tax debt would all be paid in full. More than $65,000 that seemed to never be going down as I made the minimum payments each month, but God had a better plan. I am so grateful that I didn’t believe all of the people that said God would never allow me to go into debt to help others. They were all wrong. God will do whatever God wants to do, and we are to be obedient even when it hurts, and we can’t understand why. I promise that it is ALWAYS worth it!!
Everyone that helped that night at the gas station, reluctant as we all may have been, I know God blessed.
God is good all the time, and he wants us to be more like Him, and give all that we have to bless others. It is in doing that, that He greatly blesses us. There is truly no greater joy than to know that you have helped another life find hope and know love. Even when it costs all that you have to help, give it all! Time, money, encouragement, prayers, and any gifts that you may have to bless others, use and give freely.
I had a dream that a giant rainbow was right in the middle of the city, and all of the people were walking through the rainbow. The people all seemed to be dead and like heaps of ashes ready to blow away if the wind picked up. Zombie-dead and burned out lives I guess. As they went under the covering of the massive rainbow, showers of sparkling, crystallized rain poured over them. When they reached the other side they were full of vibrant colors and beautiful
They all started out completly dead, but as they went on a bizare journey under the rainbow cover, they were all refreshed and reborn into a beautiful and vibrant life!
How awesome God is making all of His creation that accept Jesus Christ! Don’t let pride or lies keep you from experiencing this whole new and glorious thing God is doing right now. It’s time for a new day for all of creation! Believe in God and accept Jesus Christ’s sacrificial life, death and resurrection as enough to cover your wrongs. Make Jesus your Lord and let go of the burnt up life you currently are trying to rescue and repair. God is saying “Stop trying to repair what is polluted and poisonous in your past. I will give you a new and better life, if you will just believe and trust me to do this for you!”
“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble”
Psalms 107:2 ESV
I came upon a man about to collapse crossing the street in Mesa, so I stopped my car and asked if he needed help.
I know that most people don’t understand why I feel the need to stop and help people that I see on the streets, but I don’t understand why they don’t feel the need to help. If I ignore the human lives that are suffering and feel alone and unloved, how will they ever know that they are loved, and that God is able to heal and rescue them from their despair?
The man today looked like he was going to die if he didn’t get help, and I finally insisted that he get in my car before he passed out in the street. He was barely able to speak, his body was twisted and in constant motion. I assumed that he was a drug addict or just really sick, but either way, I knew that he needed help. I have some knowledge on what addictions do to the body and mind, but I have no experience with helping someone that is addicted to heroin, and this guy was in terrible shape, and I figured that it was either up to me to lead him to God, or he would die.
I prayed over him many times, and I asked him to surrender his life to Jesus, so he could heal him, because nothing that I was speaking was going to be enough. I fed him lunch, and asked God to bless his food to help his body receive the nutrients it needed to be restored enough to at least function long enough to speak a full sentence, but that wasn’t happening in the 3-4 hours that I spent driving around with him in my car. I finally decided to just play some music that I thought might help to ease his mind from the severe wd symptoms that he seemed to be suffering from at that time. I guess that the demonic spirits that had his life and body bound didn’t like that much, because he started displaying worse signs of wanting to come right out of his skin. The faces and strange sounds that came from him were not normal human speech or expressions. He was going in and out of what appeared to be demonic possession as the spirits were fighting to remain with him, so I just started singing loudly and would ask him to repeat the words with me that proclaimed deliverance and being well with the soul.
I told him that I wasn’t going to leave him until he was free from what had a hold on him, and I meant it, because I knew that God would never lead me to this guy if he didn’t want me to help him escape the bondage. I was thinking that perhaps I should have been better prepared, but I have no idea how to prepare for something like that, so I just gave it all to God to handle when I saw no signs of improvement. After awhile he sort of came out of some of the suffering and what appeared to be a torturous hell from my view, but he still wasn’t able to sit still in his seat or talk clearly.
I drove him to where he said he lived, and I thought that he might be okay if I left him there and just continued to pray for him, but then the drug dealers rolled up, and I could tell that part of him wanted to go join them, but he said that he didn’t want to stay there, because he knew that if he did, he would end up at their apartment doing drugs. I didn’t want that either, but I also didn’t want to force someone to change because I thought that they should, so I told him that it was his decision to make, and I knew that God wanted to help him through the battle that he was in, but I wasn’t sure what that really would entail.
I found a nearby detox center and drove him there, but I had no idea if they would take him or if they would require insurance or even a full name, and I had none of that info to give them, and he wasn’t in any condition to fill out paperwork. At that point, I stopped in the parking lot, and began to tell him that this suffering now was actually part of his healing that would later help him to lead many others out of the same bondage.
He said he was molested by a man when I asked him to tell me his story, but he didn’t say anything else, and he really didn’t need to, because I already knew why God put him with me at that moment. I told him how I first came to know God was real and that He was able to do big and awesome miracles, and it was when I cried out to God to help the children that were being sexually abused and no one else would listen or help these hurting lives. I told him how God listened and rescued 168 kids that very night that I prayed for his help. I told him that God didn’t want him to carry that shame or guilt anymore, and that it was not going to continue to keep him locked in addiction to escape the pain of the past, because God can remove all of that pain and heal him completely.
We talked about his dreams as a child and how it was not too late for his life to be transformed into what it was meant to be before evil tried to destroy it. The guy was only 24 years old, but I truly couldn’t tell if he was 20 or 40, because the drugs had messed him up so badly.
When I finally left him, he was almost speaking full sentences, and he no longer had that fear and pain clinging onto him. I can’t tell you what happened after that, but as I drove away, I started sobbing. The pain was so heavy on my heart knowing that his struggle was nowhere near over, and that no one cared enough to help him. I couldn’t find any place to take him that I knew would give him the care and support he needed.
I just cried out to God and told Him that it wasn’t fair that he had to suffer like that because of what happened to him as a child. He would have died if I didn’t pick him up today, and part of me wanted to die knowing that he was just one life that was out there among thousands just like him that no one would see or help.
I asked God to please make sure that his life was surrounded with protection and that he would never be alone again. I knew that I couldn’t do anything, but I also knew that God could do everything he needed and more, so I gave him to God and told God that I knew that He was the only One that could save that kid, and I knew that He would do just that.
I told two people about my day, and both of them acted upset and concerned more about my safety than that poor guy that was barely an adult, and a very broken one at that. I told the people that if I was worried or in fear, that would mean that I didn’t trust God, and I knew that God sent me to find that guy before he died on the street.
I just want to say that if anyone ever sees a person in need, and they don’t stop to help them out of fear for their own life, than they need to truly examine their relationship with God and know that perfect love casts out fear. God is perfect love, so if you truly trust and believe in God, than please let go of the fear ,and see and hear the people that are suffering all around you everyday. We are the light that shines out the darkness if we are in Christ and doing the works that He did.
The church isn’t a building, it is the people that make up the Body of Christ, and if the people in the churches don’t start getting outside the walls, the Body of Christ will never rise up!
The people inside the church buildings are saved, so let’s stop focusing on how we can entertain them and get into the streets and find the lives that are dying without Jesus!
Don’t go changing to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don’t imagine you’re too familiar
And I don’t see you anymore
I wouldn’t leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times; I’ll take the bad times
I’ll take you just the way you are
Don’t go trying some new fashion
Don’t change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care
I don’t want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are
I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you?
I said I love you and that’s forever
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are
I have loved you with an everlasting love. I created you for my good works. Before you were born, I thought of you. I formed you in your mother’s womb; knitting all of your inner parts perfectly together. I have always been with you, and I planned each day of your life. Oh, won’t you trust in Me even now My beloved child?
Have you not known that it was I, who held your hands up and taught you to walk? Did I not spoon-feed you all of your first solid foods? I tell you that it was I, the Lord, your God. I brought you out of your darkness, and through the storms and the crashing waves that tried to overtake you and steal your life away.
Believe in Me, because I have believed in you. I knew that you would try to deny My help, and that you would need to prove that you were strong enough to do this world alone, so I waited with patience as I watched you stumble through the darkness. I was attentive to your every cry, and I held your hand in the loneliest of nights. Your heart was aching, and Mine was breaking, as I reached out My hand to draw you near. You tried to grab ahold, but the pleasures of the world were determined to steal your soul.
The longing to feel love and belong to something bigger, you worked and gave all that you had to give, but rejection and denial by people left you hurting and feeling betrayed. I have not forsaken you. I am with you every step of this journey. I know your pain. I know your heart. I am the comforter that can give you hope, faith and love to last to the end.
I have sent my ministering angels to keep you from falling too far, and in the day that you are ready, I am still close enough to hear your whisper, “come near”. I will never leave you, My beloved child. I made a vow to uphold you in this world. I want so desperately to open your eyes, so that you can see that it is I. I am the One that has loved you from the beginning of time, and it is I, who will love you through this earthly life. My love doesn’t end. I am eternal and My Spirit dwells from within. Though your earthly form fails you, I will never fail you. I will raise you up on the last day, and you will shine as the Son.
Your life is not your own, you were bought with a price. That price was paid with the precious blood of My only begotten Son. If you can open your heart and let me in, I will show you a new life that frees you from sin. I don’t ask you to come to Me cleaned up and pure. I only ask that you come to Me, so I can pour out my love and mercy in your life to heal. You are My beloved child, and I am your Father. My love never ends. Come to Me, and I will set you free.
Love requires freedom-voluntary-we must fall in love
Freedom involves risk
Risk entails responsibility
Responsibility enables growth
“LET YOUR STEADFAST LOVE BE UPON US, AS WE HOPE IN YOU, OH LORD!”
What do you do when you live in a city plagued by evil? The news reports on the endless stories of liars, thieves, murderers, child molesters, drug addicts, sex traffickers and destruction of the worst kind. My eyes and ears are tormented by the suffering that surrounds my city. The people live in constant fear, anger, envy, strife, division and delusion. The enemy has blinded all of the eyes, and the hearts are so hardened that no one understands what is real or how to love with pure hearts.
“Bless and forgive all of them Lord! Open their eyes to truth and pour out your Holy Spirit to cover every inch of this state! We need to know the steadfast love that comes from above! Our lives are broken and evil has crept into our hearts. We are no longer walking in truth, but we live in a world of lies that keep our eyes blind. We need your light to shine through the darkness and expose the lies of the enemy! Don’t listen to their condemning words that they shout about one another. They know not what they are doing. Oh Lord, expedite your plans! Hasten these last days, for I can’t bear to hear another story about a mother killing her own children in order to escape the torment of not knowing the truth. Father, I praise you for your perfect and just ways that are so great and the depth is beyond man’s understanding. You are the source of everything good in this earth, and we need MORE of you, not less. Let your will be done. Let those that have received understanding and truth rise up and share this message of hope and love for Your glory in Christ Jesus. Amen”
I don’t have to know if the person that I am praying for is nice or a drug addict or even a child abuser, because God told me that I am to love my neighbor and never curse or pay anyone back evil for evil, so I ask God to bless everyone that I pass on the road or in the stores or on the streets. The only thing that will destroy evil completely is love, and I am determined to love my entire state from evil back to redeemed and free in Christ Jesus! Jesus loved the Father with everything that he had and obeyed even to death on a cross, so it is nothing for me to sacrifice my time and voice to pray and speak life over the desolate spans of my state.
I know that many people don’t understand how to pray or what to pray or even if prayers are answered, but if they knew how powerful prayers are, surely they would all pray! prayers whispered The video link is an awesome story about how a young mother gave her baby up for adoption, but she included many blessings and prayers over his life first. The true testimony should open a few blind eyes to God’s great love, so please check it out if you need a boost of faith and need something to give you hope today!
How much is too much for God to redeem? Where is too far for God to reach? Some of us walk around consumed by guilt, grief, sorrow, hurt, sickness, confusion and chaos, but what we are not understanding is exactly what we need to understand in order to escape those feelings, because we are under attack when we feel broken and afraid.
We are redeemed in Him!
Jesus Christ is the word of God manifest in the flesh. He came into the world in order to free man from the punishment and condemnation of sin, and by taking the sins of the world, God is a loving and just God. He knew that man was unable to ever return back to Him as long as sin was standing between man and God. Jesus died, so that we could have eternal life in him.
God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son. That whosoever would believe in Him, would not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
“I hear You say,
My love is over
It’s in between
The times that you doubt me
When you can’t feel
The times that you question
Is this for real
The times you’re broken
The times that you mend
The times you hate me
And the times that you bend
My love is over
It’s in between
The times that you’re healing
And when your heart breaks
The times that you feel like you’ve fallen from grace
The times you’re hurting
The times that you heal
The times you go hungry and are tempted to steal
In times of confusion
In chaos and pain
I’m there in your sorrow under the weight of your shame
I’m there through your heart-ache
I’m there in the storm
My love I will keep you by my power alone
I don’t care where you’ve fallen or where you have been
I’ll never forsake you
My love never ends
It never ends”
The above are song lyrics by Tenth Avenue North -Song Title “Times”
Can the darkness hide the light? The light will always overpower the darkness, so no matter where you are, or where you have been, God is able to pull you back to Him!
Never let go of HOPE! God is able to do ALL things, and He will never leave you or forsake you!
Don’t let this world cause you defeat.
It is through My blood at the cross, that each life can be made complete.
Have you never heard that I gave my life to carry you through?
For my blood ran red, and your sins washed white as wool.
Come with me, and I will give you rest.
You need not toil or bear that weight upon your chest.
You are in My hands, and I will never let you go.
The Father has entrusted me to get you home.
I am the One that comes at the darkest hour in the night
I am the One that will fill you with my light.
There is no darkness for those that seek my face,
There is only steadfast love, mercy and grace.
Life is given, and hope is renewed,
The Holy Spirit now dwells in you.
I am the light of this dark world,
Remain in me, so I can teach you how to live, love and lead.
For my burden is light, and one can find strength to walk in God’s power and might.
Don’t cry out with a grieving heart without adding My name with a plea to give you a new start.
This is the way that you will be saved! I will answer you before your cry is done, and together We will become One!
There are many that have not known the way, so if you see the darkest soul today, don’t hide your face or coward away.
For my light is a free gift that you received from God’s grace,
and it is His will that you shine into every dark place!
The light of love and truth will cast out the darkness of lies and deception.
Don’t fear what destroys the body, because I am the resurrection.
