Jesus Christ died to save the world from sin and he also died to make the Kingdom of God available to his beloved children so that we would no longer be separated from our heavenly father again.

If you sincerely believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried then resurrected three days later-and surrender your life to him you will be saved.

All of us have sinned and fall short of God’s glory. There is no one who is righteous, not even one. Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” -Romans 3: 10, 3: 23, 5: 8, 5: 12, 6: 23, 10: 9-10

If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior, as a Christian you should  constantly pray and talk to God everyday all through out the day, read the bible consistently and get familiar with God’s word to get to know him better and to know how to live according to his will.

The Holy Spirit that dwells within you to help, comfort and teach will enable you to become aligned to the plan of our heavenly father so let Jesus who now lives within you take the lead.

If you’ve never been baptized get baptized, find a church to worship at and have fellowship with other Christians who adhere to the true authority of what is preached from the bible.

Now that you are in the family of God/Jesus go and tell others about the good news of the gospel! –Sincerely

Spiritual Sensitivity

Strong intuition, gut feelings, and constant or repetitive thoughts- whatever you want to call it- our inner voice of spirit talks to us often to impart certain messages, specific warnings and special knowledge/wisdom according to any particular situation that may be at hand.

I had a recent bout with a relentless alert to inform me about a pastor at a church I attended. The message came to me within my spirit, heightening within my thoughts and within my sensitivity to “feel”. I discerned as usual and took heed. “You can’t trust him. He is trouble. Stay away from him,” the inner voice conveyed.

I listened and acted as soon as I continued to get these intense revelations.

I did try to give the pastor the benefit of the doubt though one day the mention of a certain issue/subject matter during his Sunday morning church sermon confirmed what the holy spirit disclosed to me ahead of time in regard to him.

I appreciate that I was made aware and I ended our sessions of bible study before the circumstance became a disagreeable incident of some kind. I do very well to devote my own personal time and attention into scripture every day without an exchange of discussion with the pastor.

I was open and honest with him without giving him all of the major details and once I confronted him by email the nagging sensations gradually left me and I was at peace.

To conclude, this Pastor is not a bad guy, there is just something not right and that does not sit well with me within his disposition. I think one of the elements is that I am a little too pure and distinct within spirit for him.

He admitted to me that compared to other people he counselled with I did not have any dire issues. In fact, he told me I had the best life in terms of my lifestyle and spiritual foundation.

The pastor told me the trouble with certain others coming to him was about them having children by different men, and so on. I never had any predicament of that nature or the like.

 

 

Why Some Of Us Are Born With Second-Sight

Not yesterday, but last Sunday night a week ago, I watched a mystery, suspense, thriller, drama, titled “Second-Sight” which I could actually relate to.

This was a 2016 made for television movie. It starred a predominantly African American cast including the late Marla Gibbs (who played Florence on the Jeffersons many years ago).

Marla played a grandmother who explained to her granddaughter the gift of the “knowing power” through dreams, visions, and feelings (empathic)- how it passed and skipped through the generations of their family lineage.

I also liked the message behind the further impart of how God enables us who have these particular gifts to help other people through what we foreknow and foresee when her granddaughter asked why and what was the purpose of going through the circumstance of the warnings and messages that she received.

I was once told during my early twenties by another fellow person gifted with second-sight that our gifts are not for ourselves but for others, however, I strongly disagree.

Yes, those of us who are spiritually endowed by birth are to use our ability to further promote the Kingdom of God, but also the faculty is to bring us ourselves even closer to know our Lord ourselves and to enrich and assist us along within the process of our journey.

I know this all as a fact from my own lifelong deep encounters, numerous accounts, and incredible experiences.

God interacts with all of his children differently and according to the uniqueness in which he made us. We all have a special purpose to fulfill designed especially to his plan and the Lord will continue to guide us along the way that he has prepared.

My Testimony: The Power Of God

From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”-Matthew 4:17

For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. -2 Corinthians 6:2

The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 2 Peter 3:9


When we honestly and earnestly turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and surrender our lives to him we become children of God forever led and protected by his love, grace and spirit. God leads us into the paths of righteousness. The Lord knows that we are unable…

My Testimony: The Power Of God


But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. –Psalms 86:15

For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” –Zephaniah 3:17


God’s love is beyond our comprehension.  

 

He loves us more than anyone else could ever imagine, and he loves our loved ones more than we would ever be capable. This kind of love is outstanding and unsurpassed. 

 

A lot of us may believe that God doesn’t love or care about us, and that he is distant from us through certain seasons of life.  

 

However, we are instructed to walk by faith. We are to depend on the word of God…

My Testimony: The Power Of God

Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. -Matthew 6:19-21

“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. -Matthew 7:13-14

Beware

Supervisors will bait employees with large sums of money just to advance themselves without any consideration for their fellow laborer’s welfare.

Regardless, there are people who will do anything for money.

About two months ago now, there was a text message that went out at a place of work for caregivers.

I didn’t believe my eyes when I saw the text advertise four-hundred dollars a day for a Caregiver case.

The message didn’t sound right to me. For all the years I worked in health care I never saw a case offered for four-hundred dollars a day.

I contemplated on the text, rationalizing what could be up. The only explanation I quickly came up with was the case had to be a Covid-19 positive client.

A while later, another text was sent out acknowledging that the case in need was indeed for someone who was Covid-19 positive.

The agency did not initially mention that vital information. They began to take loads of virus infected people, informing caregivers of PPE gear located at the homes of these clients for them to utilize.

No employee was obligated to accept any of the Covid-19 cases against their will. It was a free choice to any caregiver who worked for the agency.

One employee told me a supervisor sent her along with another coworker on a case at a hospital yet didn’t inform them ahead of time that the patient/client was positive for Covid-19.

I understand these people who have the virus need medical attention and have to be treated but it is the supervisor’s responsibility to inform their laborers in this particular life-threatening situation.

People have to be extra careful and look out for themselves because when money is involved unscrupulous professionals as well as ordinary individuals will generally put one at risk within a heartbeat.


Discernment

I use to hear people say not to trust anybody. A lot of the time those words are true.

However, the ones who make that statement are the ones we actually cannot trust sometimes! 

It is very important to be cautious. We don’t have to be suspicious of everyone who crosses our path, but we should actively stay alert.

So many individuals are phony, deceitful and out for themselves that other people sometimes doubt legitimate people until they get to know them better.

I was always able to sense things about people that other people couldn’t sense through the natural gift of discernment. I didn’t always let people know what I picked up about them, though, I was very well aware.

Insight is a beneficial faculty to have. It can save one’s life. Some individuals will appreciate one’s knowledge while others may resent them for it.



The Pursuit

The Power Of The Lord Burns Strong For His Children

The pursuit is real. There is nothing one can do to stop it. When God comes to confront you be prepared to be swept away! Nothing can keep us from him. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He knows all. He knows when he will return us back to himself ahead of time. -latoya lawrence

To give a brief summary to make a point, I went through a lot as a child. I had a lot of good times in the process also, blessed in ways that inspired plenty of envy and jealously toward my mother and I. Which spurred up more discontentment from resentful neighbors and others whom we came into contact with who continuously witnessed our advantages.

I didn’t understand what motivated these people to act out and react at that exact time period during my early youth but my mother knew why. I grasped the depth of it as I had gotten older. I never imagined people could be so ill. I knew I had never liked them, knowing there was something off about them. The envy and jealousy lasted way up into my adulthood, taking on an even uglier turn.

When I entered my teenage years and realized favor was and had always been upon me from God, I hoped for unsavory things to never again appear the way it had before. Then certain events did happen again. I was pretty ticked off at God about it too. Furious about the people, the circumstances they caused, and God for having allowed the incidents to happen.

When life gets really taxing and does not go as planned or expected we get very upset because we are human. We feel this way because we think the Lord owes us something, I did. I believed he owed me because I hadn’t asked to be born into the world. So, I felt if he wanted me here so badly then make it worth my while. I didn’t appreciate all the trials and tribulations, especially as a young child- there were certain traumas even though I was strong and overcame them- it was the principal of the matter to me.

God can dish out to us so many wonderful big and small every day blessings that we ultimately love and enjoy. Still, we become annoyed, resentful, and distant the instant he permits something within our life that we didn’t appreciate or ask for. This reaction usually stems from our sense of unjust treatment from the bad experiences.

When I look back now, I see how much the Lord took care of me. He blessed me richly in far too many ways to count. I was very fortunate in spite of particular situations that came and went. God is really good and excellent regardless of what our minds are sometimes limited to comprehend about him.

When I stepped away from God out of frustration- he still protected and provided for me the whole time and kept my feet on solid ground. His holy spirit remained and maintained a work in me. My flesh was full of hatred but my spirit was full of peace and joy. I believed that peace and joy was from another source out of my wishful thinking.

Nevertheless, the Lord in his patience gave me my space, waiting for the exact day he would put my animosity to an end and wake me up from my nonsense to realize his extreme love and compassion for me.

God readily embraced me, eagerly forgave me, and now he celebrates me and my return with a stronger bond of love and devotion between us than ever before. I went back to the Lord immediately when I was faced by him. I was able to do this without a problem because of the trust that developed over the years when I experienced his incredible accounts of faithfulness.

Don’t get me wrong now, God is full of grace and mercy, nonetheless, he will correct us when necessary but it is not a punishment the act is done purely out of his precious love and care for us.

God is completely dependable and true, and I am on fire for him!

Since When Is Jesus Authority In My Life?

People We Can Count On by misslatoya

Albanac said 34 minutes ago

Albanac

Lol, since when is Jesus the highest authority in your life?

In reply to Albanac.

Since he called me back to him months ago. I first accepted Jesus when I was around ten or twelve years of age. I had been angry at him for fifteen years.

However, when one is truly God’s child he doesn’t let them go no matter how mad they get at him and distance themselves. I actually thought I pushed God away, but the truth is he never left me.

Jesus leaves the ninety-nine sheep to go bring the one who wandered safely back home.

God attracted my attention and this time I listened to him. I am nolonger angry at God anymore. He had always been there for me within the past and is still there for me now. (https://misslatoya.wordpress.com/2020/12/12/my-roots/)

People We Can Count On

There are friends who stick closer than certain family members. Though there is no other who will stick by us more than Jesus.

Isn’t it wonderful to have people around you who genuinely do have your best interest in mind?

I’ve been very lucky to have and to have come into contact with a small group of loving people who I can trust and who I can depend on if ever in need even if just to talk about something. I’ve never been the type to bother anyone or to ask anyone for anything, however it is nice to know that I can go to these people if the moment calls for it.

A few of the people I have known since I was a baby and the others I met not too long ago.

Not everyone can truly call someone a friend, let alone a lot of the people they may hang around. Fortunately, I never hung around many to have called or considered them real friends. I referred to people who I made acquaintance with in the past associates.

I am thankful and grateful to God that he surrounded me with a very small amount of handpicked people who are not of the world who are genuine than a large random pile of people who are of the world and not sincere.

Thank you so much, Jesus!

A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need. -Proverbs 17:17




No Mention Of Being Born With A Caul In The Bible, However, There Were Special, Gifted And Chosen People within Scripture

I enjoy reading my bible. I like reading the bible now even more than I did when I was younger. The bible doesn’t mention anything about cauls as a sign of being special or having any supernatural/spiritual gift, yet there definitely were quite a few who communicated with God, had visions and prophetic dreams.

Since the caul denotation is not in the bible and is not biblical some Christians would consider it derived from a pagan source of origin. I was told when I was younger by someone who was ignorant (a woman I use to have bible study with when I was eighteen) that gifts that I had were of or from the devil which was ridiculous. Yes, the devil does give certain people mystical abilities through familiar spirits but this is not the case for everyone. Some believe that only when the Holy Spirit comes to unite with one are we able to receive gifts from God.

I know for a fact that God will use his spirit early on to guide and to lead us into further seeking and understanding. Some don’t even believe that the baptismal or christening of a baby is significant which is not true. I was christening at four months old and it was a blessing in which God had his hand over my life from the beginning.

Nevertheless, one being born or bestowed with certain spiritual gifts from God is a truth and reality and Moses is a great example.

She saw that he was a special baby and kept him hidden for three months. Exodus 2:2

It was by faith that Moses’ parents hid him for three months when he was born. They saw that God had given them an unusual child, and they were not afraid to disobey the king’s command. Hebrews 11:23

We are suppose to use our gifts to glorify god

Old Testament Bible Truths Of Special God-Given Talents

Joseph Dream

One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever.

“Listen to this dream,” he said. “We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!”

His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them.

Soon Joseph had another dream, and again he told his brothers about it. “Listen, I have had another dream,” he said. “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!”

This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. “What kind of dream is that?” he asked. “Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you?” But while his brothers were jealous of Joseph, his father wondered what the dreams meant. – Genesis 37:5-11


Joseph Interprets Two Dreams 

Some time later, Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer and chief baker offended their royal master. Pharaoh became angry with these two officials, and he put them in the prison where Joseph was, in the palace of the captain of the guard. They remained in prison for quite some time, and the captain of the guard assigned them to Joseph, who looked after them.

While they were in prison, Pharaoh’s cup-bearer and baker each had a dream one night, and each dream had its own meaning. When Joseph saw them the next morning, he noticed that they both looked upset. “Why do you look so worried today?” he asked them.

And they replied, “We both had dreams last night, but no one can tell us what they mean.”

“Interpreting dreams is God’s business,” Joseph replied. “Go ahead and tell me your dreams.”

So the chief cup-bearer told Joseph his dream first. “In my dream,” he said, “I saw a grapevine in front of me. The vine had three branches that began to bud and blossom, and soon it produced clusters of ripe grapes. I was holding Pharaoh’s wine cup in my hand, so I took a cluster of grapes and squeezed the juice into the cup. Then I placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.”

“This is what the dream means,” Joseph said. “The three branches represent three days. Within three days Pharaoh will lift you up and restore you to your position as his chief cup-bearer. And please remember me and do me a favor when things go well for you. Mention me to Pharaoh, so he might let me out of this place. For I was kidnapped from my homeland, the land of the Hebrews, and now I’m here in prison, but I did nothing to deserve it.”

When the chief baker saw that Joseph had given the first dream such a positive interpretation, he said to Joseph, “I had a dream, too. In my dream there were three baskets of white pastries stacked on my head. The top basket contained all kinds of pastries for Pharaoh, but the birds came and ate them from the basket on my head.”

“This is what the dream means,” Joseph told him. “The three baskets also represent three days. Three days from now Pharaoh will lift you up and impale your body on a pole. Then birds will come and peck away at your flesh.”

Pharaoh’s birthday came three days later, and he prepared a banquet for all his officials and staff. He summoned his chief cup-bearer and chief baker to join the other officials. He then restored the chief cup-bearer to his former position, so he could again hand Pharaoh his cup. But Pharaoh impaled the chief baker, just as Joseph had predicted when he interpreted his dream. Pharaoh’s chief cup-bearer, however, forgot all about Joseph, never giving him another thought. -Genesis 40


Pharaoh’s Dreams 

Two full years later, Pharaoh dreamed that he was standing on the bank of the Nile River. In his dream he saw seven fat, healthy cows come up out of the river and begin grazing in the marsh grass. Then he saw seven more cows come up behind them from the Nile, but these were scrawny and thin. These cows stood beside the fat cows on the riverbank. Then the scrawny, thin cows ate the seven healthy, fat cows! At this point in the dream, Pharaoh woke up.

But he fell asleep again and had a second dream. This time he saw seven heads of grain, plump and beautiful, growing on a single stalk. Then seven more heads of grain appeared, but these were shriveled and withered by the east wind. And these thin heads swallowed up the seven plump, well-formed heads! Then Pharaoh woke up again and realized it was a dream.

The next morning Pharaoh was very disturbed by the dreams. So he called for all the magicians and wise men of Egypt. When Pharaoh told them his dreams, not one of them could tell him what they meant.

Finally, the king’s chief cup-bearer spoke up. “Today I have been reminded of my failure,” he told Pharaoh. “Some time ago, you were angry with the chief baker and me, and you imprisoned us in the palace of the captain of the guard. One night the chief baker and I each had a dream, and each dream had its own meaning. There was a young Hebrew man with us in the prison who was a slave of the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams, and he told us what each of our dreams meant. And everything happened just as he had predicted. I was restored to my position as cup-bearer, and the chief baker was executed and impaled on a pole.”

Pharaoh sent for Joseph at once, and he was quickly brought from the prison. After he shaved and changed his clothes, he went in and stood before Pharaoh. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream last night, and no one here can tell me what it means. But I have heard that when you hear about a dream you can interpret it.”

“It is beyond my power to do this,” Joseph replied. “But God can tell you what it means and set you at ease.”

So Pharaoh told Joseph his dream. “In my dream,” he said, “I was standing on the bank of the Nile River, and I saw seven fat, healthy cows come up out of the river and begin grazing in the marsh grass. But then I saw seven sick-looking cows, scrawny and thin, come up after them. I’ve never seen such sorry-looking animals in all the land of Egypt. These thin, scrawny cows ate the seven fat cows. But afterward you wouldn’t have known it, for they were still as thin and scrawny as before! Then I woke up.

“In my dream I also saw seven heads of grain, full and beautiful, growing on a single stalk. Then seven more heads of grain appeared, but these were blighted, shriveled, and withered by the east wind. And the shriveled heads swallowed the seven healthy heads. I told these dreams to the magicians, but no one could tell me what they mean.”

Joseph responded, “Both of Pharaoh’s dreams mean the same thing. God is telling Pharaoh in advance what he is about to do. The seven healthy cows and the seven healthy heads of grain both represent seven years of prosperity. The seven thin, scrawny cows that came up later and the seven thin heads of grain, withered by the east wind, represent seven years of famine.

“This will happen just as I have described it, for God has revealed to Pharaoh in advance what he is about to do. The next seven years will be a period of great prosperity throughout the land of Egypt. But afterward there will be seven years of famine so great that all the prosperity will be forgotten in Egypt. Famine will destroy the land. This famine will be so severe that even the memory of the good years will be erased. As for having two similar dreams, it means that these events have been decreed by God, and he will soon make them happen.

“Therefore, Pharaoh should find an intelligent and wise man and put him in charge of the entire land of Egypt. Then Pharaoh should appoint supervisors over the land and let them collect one-fifth of all the crops during the seven good years. Have them gather all the food produced in the good years that are just ahead and bring it to Pharaoh’s storehouses. Store it away, and guard it so there will be food in the cities. That way there will be enough to eat when the seven years of famine come to the land of Egypt. Otherwise this famine will destroy the land.”

Joseph Made Ruler of Egypt 

Joseph’s suggestions were well received by Pharaoh and his officials. So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, clearly no one else is as intelligent or wise as you are. You will be in charge of my court, and all my people will take orders from you. Only I, sitting on my throne, will have a rank higher than yours.”

Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh removed his signet ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph’s finger. He dressed him in fine linen clothing and hung a gold chain around his neck. Then he had Joseph ride in the chariot reserved for his second-in-command. And wherever Joseph went, the command was shouted, “Kneel down!” So Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of all Egypt. And Pharaoh said to him, “I am Pharaoh, but no one will lift a hand or foot in the entire land of Egypt without your approval.”

Then Pharaoh gave Joseph a new Egyptian name, Zaphenath-paneah. He also gave him a wife, whose name was Asenath. She was the daughter of Potiphera, the priest of On. So Joseph took charge of the entire land of Egypt. He was thirty years old when he began serving in the court of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. And when Joseph left Pharaoh’s presence, he inspected the entire land of Egypt.

As predicted, for seven years the land produced bumper crops. During those years, Joseph gathered all the crops grown in Egypt and stored the grain from the surrounding fields in the cities. He piled up huge amounts of grain like sand on the seashore. Finally, he stopped keeping records because there was too much to measure.

During this time, before the first of the famine years, two sons were born to Joseph and his wife, Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera, the priest of On. Joseph named his older son Manasseh, for he said, “God has made me forget all my troubles and everyone in my father’s family.” Joseph named his second son Ephraim, for he said, “God has made me fruitful in this land of my grief.”

At last the seven years of bumper crops throughout the land of Egypt came to an end. Then the seven years of famine began, just as Joseph had predicted. The famine also struck all the surrounding countries, but throughout Egypt there was plenty of food. Eventually, however, the famine spread throughout the land of Egypt as well. And when the people cried out to Pharaoh for food, he told them, “Go to Joseph, and do whatever he tells you.” So with severe famine everywhere, Joseph opened up the storehouses and distributed grain to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe throughout the land of Egypt. And people from all around came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph because the famine was severe throughout the world. -Genesis 41

God’s Holy Spirit At Work In Me

Hi, I’m LaToya Lawrence,

God has inspired me to help spread the good news (his good news!) And surely, I can also testify to give my own personal accounts of God’s outstanding work in my life.  

God wants us to know and remember that he sent Jesus to die for us so that we could no longer be separated from him and have the relationship with him that he had originally intended. 

God wants us to know and remember that through the life, crucifixion/death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ we have been pardoned through God’s grace and mercy to escape death and receive eternal life.

God loves us and desires for no one to perish but to grasp onto his word (read the bible faithfully) harken unto his voice, (listen to him for our best interest), and follow his…

A Letter From Jesus

Walking With Jesus

During the 1980’s, when I was around eleven or twelve years old, there was a Christian bookstore that opened up around the corner from where I lived.

At this store, my mother and I would pick out and purchase hand crafted religious plaques.

We bought a large-size, dark wood carving, scripted and pictured with the beauty of the sky, ocean, and sand, adorning the words of the timeless “Footprints” inspirational.

The Footprints poem, is one of the most wonderful reminders of the comfort we receive from the Lord within the certain times we may not feel he is around us.

There were a few other religious plaques that had caught our attention and spoke to our hearts, but one that I remember buying in particular was a favorite of mine.

I purchased this lovely plaque when I was about fourteen. I had bought two of them, one for myself, and one as a gift for someone else.

Over a decade later, I ran into…

Spiritual Warfare

Walking With Jesus

Witchcraft/Black Magic

Witchcraft is definitely real and the bible will confirm this truth.

I’ve had people work Brujeria and all other sorts of evil witchcraft/voodoo on me and members of my family within the distant past, however, I and my family prevailed against it.

God/Jesus is, of course, far more powerful than the devil. Satan and his demons are no competition for our heavenly father, neither are negative/wicked people.

Always stay positive, continue to pray and to stay close to God and everything will work out fine. Don’t worry about anything, just go to God with all of your concerns no matter how big or how small your worries may be.

Take care, and God bless you.

Read the scriptures and hold on to the word of God

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness…

The Lord Never Abandons Us

Walking With Jesus

I read somewhere that what we believe about the nature of God is of infinite importance and that is so true because what I believed about God was anything but love.

I did believe he was a primarily angry and vengeful God who expected me to live up to his demands without consideration or reason.

And I believed that all God wanted was a bunch of praise and recognition out of some type of narcissism. And I didn’t understand why because I felt that I didn’t ask to come into this world.

False ideas about the Lord can indeed rob us of the true beauty that is within life and save us from a lot of unnecessary strain.-latoya lawrence

For years, I was very angry at God and turned away from him. Not at all within the sense of changing from a good to a bad lifestyle, but living a personal lifestyle…

Quiet, Alone Time

 

I am an extremely positive person who carries a lot of positive energy. Energy that many have tried to drain and take for themselves unsuccessfully.

I have no tolerance for negativity and I do not ever intentionally envelop myself within anyone’s negative energy or bear any of their burdens. As an individual empathetically inclined I spiritually “feel” and absorb the vibration of others though I know how to fade out the unnecessary excess of what I paranormally apprehend within others mental and emotional states.

I am one who likes to do for herself, by herself, under her own order and itinerary. People consider me pleasantly sociable when I interact and I naturally am, I’m very high-spirited and love to talk and keep active. Even so, I often prefer solo engagement.

There are recreational sports we innermost like doing, or taking part in amongst ourselves, or around, and with family members. Those moments of meditation, cooking, crafting, reading, writing, planting, playing with pets and whatever else may satisfy one’s fancy.

Whatever one’s preference, it’s important to have time for self.

I am a person who likes their space, one who doesn’t want to be bothered with outsiders too often, or at all. So, there is no inconvenience within my regular periods of desired solitude as the matter comes naturally to me.

I’m very comfortable with myself and within my own skin and I enjoy my own company.

I don’t need the presence of others around me for gaiety or support. It feels good to not be burdened with a social dependence in which grants me no true fulfillment.

I deal with people only if I choose to not because I have to out of loneliness or desperation-that was never my style. I was always content alone, even as a child and when I played. I was extremely creative and continuously kept my self-occupied. I found that certain individuals interrupted my entertainment or vibration when they imposed and tagged along.

Even when I’m bored, I don’t want to be disturbed. I am grounded and have foundation; I have peace of mind.

Well-being is first and foremost; keeping the chakras balanced, the aura strong and bright, and the spirit cleansed promotes optimal mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

It is very beneficial and sometimes vital to have that quiet, alone time where we distance ourselves periodically from others to rejuvenate and generate additional radiant energy.

We explore our interests, hobbies, or leisure more abundantly when vibration is within harmony to the essence in which particularly surrounds us.

Essential Worker: Essentially Protected During Pandemic/The Vital Power Of Spirit

When I entered into the area of health care professionally six and a half years ago a long-term dedication within the field was never my intention. Health care wasn’t a passion of mine and it still isn’t.

As a caregiver, I knew that I’d always have a job and never be out of work for any long period of time, and I was correct. So, it was a great back up gig and I am excellent at what I can do. After all, I do have over twenty years of total experience aside from having learned certain medical procedures through being trained and certified/licensed for the six years in which I have.

Health Care is an important occupation when one is responsible for the personal welfare of an ill or dependent individual who needs specific care or attention.

I’ve done and dealt with practically most all kind of patients/clients with all types of requirements. I’ve had to administer medication, take blood pressure, prepare and change ostomy bags, monitor blood sugar and insulin injections, care for hospice, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s/dementia, stroke, blind, deaf, amputated, psychiatric and etc.…. The list just goes on. I’ve worked in hospitals, assisted living facilities, and within residential homes.

I’ve even had to travel out of my way at times but the experience was good and I had received good worthwhile pay.

Fortunately, I haven’t had to be out there within the health care field now during this Corona Virus episode, even though I was ready willing and able to work for the main reason of earning the income that I am use to making, regardless of the pandemic.

This virus doesn’t scare me, yet the universe doesn’t want me out there constantly within that particular environment for my overall well-being. It’s like one not permitting their beloved child to go walk through a fire even if they wouldn’t possibly get burned. The universe doesn’t even want me feeling the heat or inhaling smoke-even though I can handle the flames, and I honor and respect the “power of spirit” with much regard and appreciation.

Proud To Be Unique/Proud To Be Real

Those of us in particular who are genuine messengers speak in truth through spirit; I write automatically within the form of automatic writing, a power that self- expresses and that writes itself. 

Self Love Self Respect

Strength Of Character

The Veil Of Truth

I love how energy manifests truth, the genuine essence of one that cannot be repressed or denied. 

When others aim to define us for who they want us to be or for who they falsely perceive us to be, and/or question, doubt, or speculate our true motives and intentions for why we operate in how we do-which is really just us being our authentic and distinct selves-validity knocks them down every time. 

A lot of people aren’t capable of dealing with actualities that they aren’t commonly accustomed to within certain individuals who are unconventional and unusual.  

Many often reflect their own insecurities and propensities onto others unsubstantially; some may even unrightfully accuse us of incorporating defense mechanisms instead of just accepting the harsh reality of our truths in regard to specific circumstances concerning numerous aspects of life, people, and situations.  

Some people kill me with the nonsense about putting up walls if we don’t like or want to be bothered-such a crock of bullshit! That may be true for some, in general; however, in the case of certain others and such as myself, we don’t put up walls we knock them down because we demand and enjoy the freedom to not be confined to the narrow margins/boundaries of ignorance. 

When we refuse to allow the negative views, opinions, or accusations of others to overthrow our veracity and reality truth automatically speaks for itself. It is that exact genuineness that gives us the natural authority and passion to ignore and scoff at the absurdities, enabling us to blossom and flourish even more elaborately through celestial energy. 

Fallacy has no bearing on the foundation wherewith we stand and wherefrom we go therefore.  

The profit through our blessings reward us for confidently placing our trust within the authenticity of our true identification; an honest verification to the origin of living one’s own special dimensional life force. 

The Truth Behind The Veil

Born with a caul is who I am, yet I am more than just one born with extra sensory perception.

Child Of The Caul

Spirit brings me into who I fully am and I love the assistance of a highly guided escort; the generation of my own exuding magnetic energy graciously outlining the pattern. 

The Body Is The Temple

Keep It Protected With The Vitality Of Spirit

Healthy Living

For Mind, Body, And Soul

The Spirit Speaks Truth/The Strength Of The Caul

The purity of spirit comes from within and exudes without. The body is the temple, the beauty preserved within the life force sustained by the celestial energy. 

Strong Spirit

 

Love, peace, and happiness stems from a spirit well fed by nature’s essentials. 

The crucial flow of innate wisdom; vital to the appetite, the hunger fortified unto abundant growth. 

Spiritual Prosperity

The richness of spirit cannot be bought, this type of wealth is priceless. The value exceeds anything tangible within nature or on this earth. 

Trust, loyalty, and honesty go a very long way and when one’s spirituality/faith is built on these merits there stands a solid foundation of mutual respect and devotion to the betterment and continuity of a favorable existence. 

The circumstance is even more fabulous when it is preordained and one is eager to join within their own agreement/alignment as everything falls suitably into place/in balance to one another. 

The vibration is wonderful and beautiful; the pure energy is refreshing. When the rest of the world is in danger, we are and remain untouched.  When the rest of the world is full of worry and frustration, we are comforted and reassured. When the rest of the world lack in their requirements, we gain and maintain. While the rest of the world is restless and within an uproar, we are sound asleep prophetically dreaming of the future paradise that is to come. 

Undisturbed

 

I am unaffected by the bullshit of this world

We’re Not Defined By The Ignorance Of Others

I never feared to be who I am no matter how many people talked. I never cared what anyone said or thought: they were scared of me; they were jealous of me; they wanted to be like me!

Spiritual Blockages

Envy And Jealousy

When I was a little girl there was always a lot of jealousy around me and my mother, certain people constantly judging me on account of me not doing the same things that they, or their children were doing. People judging her on account of her strong personality, intelligence, style and advantages. 

Many had the nerve to ignorantly speculate what direction my life was heading in and what or how I would turn out to be while all along I in no way had showed any indication of having a negative outcome as they had and as their children did. 

It was more about them wanting to see something bad come about me and my way. Their children were supposed to be superior-not because they actually were-but because they bought them certain material things. Money couldn’t buy inherent wisdom! 

My mother was able to buy me particular things also. What did it mean? My mother showed me genuine love, concern, attention, and she was very smart and had the knowledge to sufficiently raise me. 

It was known that I was meant to do well in my life whereas others in specific weren’t as fortunate or spotless in matters of personal regrets or mistakes in which they couldn’t get past or considered setbacks or skeletons in their closets. The way their minds thought was a reflection on them and not anyone else who thought on a higher or opposite level. 

My mother was also meant to succeed. 

No matter what undesirable people would throw our way we continuously rose above and conquered to our liking of satisfaction. 

The Knowing Power

Power Of My Ancestors

Mind And Spirit Was Too Strong

Whether from relatives or outsiders (associates/acquaintances) people who are jealous for various reasons of their own will attempt to cause spiritual blockages in efforts to bring one down to their level or below.  

When they cannot measure up to certain calibers and are insecure about the situations that they may be in they will falsely rationalize or misinterpret their interference as a solution/downfall to equalize one to them all. Especially if they felt or interpreted that these people were better than them or considered themselves to be. Then they erroneously figure that their target will have to relent.  

Unfortunately, some individuals do break down and feel lesser than what they were as they are oblivious to what may have taken place. 

When I was in the fifth grade, I could actually feel an energy trying to block my intelligence. My great-grandmother and certain others at the time were having witchcraft done on me to halt my ability to grasp and to learn because I was very intellectually advanced at such a young age. However, the negativity didn’t prevail. I was able to know what was happening because I was born with a caul, I had intuitively felt and discerned the unnatural energy around me. 

There were also blockages put up to cause hostility between my mother and I because of the loving and close relationship that we had. 

The Spiritual blockages of various negativity (voodoo/black magic/witchcraft/evil eye/etc….) consists of attempting to block one’s intelligence, healthy and loving relationships/friendships, career/job/money, happiness/peace of mind/luck, health/lifestyle, spirituality and so on. 

The light is never put out by the darkness, it is impossible. The darkness may be able to place a temporary shadow over the light in order for the unveiling of further enlightenment, however, if one chooses to remain within the illusion of the shade that is totally on them! 

The Darkness Cannot

Overpower The Light

I turned out wonderfully as the individual I was supposed to within mind and character

My ancestors and orishas got me! They always had and they always will!

 

Solid

 

 

My Ancestors, Orishas, Special Spirits, and Spirit Guides:

For time and time again, you all have never let me down; you’ve always had my back, no matter what. You all never fail to come through for me, and I love you all dearly.
Power to the great universe!

 

 

This Road To Hell Is Paved With Bad Intentions

It’s a shame, however, I still have adversaries who still won’t quit at their nonsense and who seek to conquer and to destroy me through vain demonic techniques.

It is really deep how sick and desolate these pathetic individuals are no matter how much times goes by they still cannot move on.

They’ll have to continue on the road alone as It is impossible for them to drag me along for a ride within their eternal lanes of destruction.

These pitiful idiots are unable to spoil my joy or rattle my spirit.

 

Reading And Just A Little Of My Reminiscent Ramblings

Reading by misslatoya

jay bijwe said 1 week ago

I am addicted to reading. In spare time I used to read. Reading is fun.

 

You said 6 days ago

In reply to jay bijwe.

Yes indeed, reading is fun! And it is a wonderful and very healthy addiction to have.

 

In addition to sharing the comment above to the beauty and pleasure of good reads that can bring delight as well as learning:

I am definitely one who always enjoyed the luxury of reading as the instance came natural. In this computer age I still appreciate holding a book in my hands and turning the pages to a novel in which I can’t put down.

As a writer myself I know the beauty of vision, creativity, and originality through imagination.

I’m glad as a youngster that I grew up in a time without the internet. A time where I played and came up with things on my own and could think for myself and solve on my own.

The internet is beneficial and a great resource for communication, business, expressing artistic ventures, convenience and etc… Our cell phones and computers are very vital in this particular day and age.

However, I’m still a person who likes to talk and communicate face to face, a person who likes to think and determine for herself, a person who doesn’t need to look to the internet for inspiration, guidance, or stimulation within a mandatory or instinctual format.

I didn’t come up that way, although, it was easy for me to adapt to technology, It’s fantastic to have known the other essential productive way of life that I grew up with in regard to strong interactive skills and nurturing and utilizing various aptitudes without a global network influence.

I grew up with games, toys, cartoons, shows and literature (many that were even before my time) like Miss Pac-Man, Merlin, Simon, Paper Dolls, Barbie, Archie Comics, Tom And Jerry, Pop Eye, Woody Woodpecker, Flintstones, Jetsons, Lassie, Wonder Woman, Bionic Woman, Batman, Alfred Hitchcock, One Step Beyond, Suspense Theater, Police Woman, Streets Of San Francisco, Leave It To Beaver, Little House On The Prairie, The Virginian, I Love Lucy, Kojak, Columbo, Adam 12, Dragnet, Bank Street Readers, Babar, and so much more.

I don’t know what this shit is today. The music isn’t even as good as it use to be.

Anyhow, I miss the electric typewriters, I love the way I grew up back within the day compared to now, and I love to read a good hardcover or paperback book.

This computer age cannot ever steal away the lovely memories and experience of the late seventies and eighties culture.
