I am always sincere and honest with God. People who just see me in public forums don’t know even a fraction of what I discuss with him or talk to him about. I tell him if I don’t believe something and why and then I ask him to please convince me and help me to see things his way. If I read a book hear a sermon or someone just gives me a word I hold it up to the light and say: “I will stand before you in the end Father I have to know what you want me to believe and what you want me to do about everything.”
I gather with other believers but ultimately the Lord is my Shepherd and no one else He is the one I will answer to.
When I feel like giving up “I tell him.” but I also say help me not to! He is not likely to heal our hurts if we don’t go to him with that as he is funny that way, so long as we trust in other sources besides him he will patiently wait for us to come back to him and say: “Lord I need you” ….I really need you……….”
and he already knows we do. -Laura Grace
Be Realistic. If you only have 10 min to pray outside your work place today or 2 minutes while
sitting at a stop light let that be enough! Do not allow the enemy to convince you God
cannot work with what little you can give him right now because he can.
Remember he fed 5000 people with a couple of loves and a few fishes.
Trust God to do big things with what time you can give him. He is not upset with you for having a job
and household responsibilities to take care of.

THE disciples Perceived! The woman who had the issue of blood “perceived”
if she just could touch the hem of Jesus’ garment she would be healed! We
Perceive God is good but with our eyes we may see things going the wrong
way and the enemy wants us to blame God for the things that go wrong.
What do you perceive? Do you walk by Faith in God or do you walk by sight?
Are you struggling to understand what you see with your eyes in the bible?
Maybe God wants you to Perceive! Did you know everything Jesus did was
not written in the bible? That’s an actual scripture! Therefore how do you know
what he will or won’t do next? WE PERCEIVE with the help of the Holy Spirit.
There is nothing more dangerous than a person holding a bible who does not
understand what it really says. Laura Grace author of Grace to Grow
Good Morning! I am going to share something with you the Lord just revealed to me and I have studied my bible for years (and attended many sermons; and read many books as well.) No man Showed me this The Holy Spirit showed me. This is a word of knowledge too.
There were 12 disciples. All were called. Who was chosen (and why?)
Judas was not chosen (but he was called) because he followed Jesus but he did not receive from Jesus NOR let it change him. He went along but he was offended. So he sold out Jesus for some pieces of silver.
11 chosen out of 12.
Why? Because they fasted more? Prayed more? “claimed it” (More often?) They followed, they went (with Jesus) they pondered, they made mistakes and in the end “they learned” to be Jesus’ disciples (and later Apostles). Now is this an example to us of how to be chosen? I believe so! And our bible says “If everything” Jesus did was written down there would not be enough books to contain it all” …….and that’s why I write books (besides I”m called to do it and chosen)

This is important: Do not allow yourself to be so caught up in “bible study” in a traditional way; that you beat yourself up for not studying. Let me clarify. Didn’t Jesus say: “Look at the birds of the air?” He talked about how they don’t sow or reap but God provides for them.
So then, if you are driving to work and you see a bird (or two) and start to think about how God made the birds, how he provides for them and they find or discover things to eat, and also how he said if one falls he sees it, and you are worth more to him than many sparrows; Then you have meditated, you have studied; and you and the Lord together have studied “your bible” today.
Too often, we get caught up in circling our own mistakes with a red marking pen; and fail to see what we have done right on any given day. God did not teach us to worry, not even over something as important as our walk with him.

thank you God for this new Day! Well I am excited today I published yet another
Kindle book yesterday called the ABC’s of Christianity. I have several books that
are started now. I went to church (today) several members of the congregation
have purchased my book and I have donated Grace to the Rescue and Grace
to Grow to our local public library. A woman in church said “reading your book
has inspired me to finally start writing.” I am so happy about this! 🙂
I intend to keep pouring out on the pages as much as the Lord has poured into
me! (which is a lot by the way!). He did say as much as you have given “freely
give’ and so far I am still in the red on my writing projects however at least one
book all the proceeds are already spoken for to the widow of my dear friend
minister Diamond. All proceeds will go to her in honor of him on the book “sons
of God.” I am working in my local community and am not writing to become rich
or famous. I fully intend that what is over and above the cost of writing will go to
various charities. I have donated books all over the place and am rejoicing that
God is allowing me to do my part for his Kingdom! Praise the Lord!
