Giving Up Is Not A Option

In most situations giving up seems most reasonable but when it comes to Jesus giving up is NOT an option!Being a Christian isn’t always easy. With being a Christian comes trials and lessons and temptations that we have to overcome. It’s not easy but it’s worth it. 

So many people fall into the trap that Satan has set for them. They end up loosing they’re soul because they don’t know how to overcome the world. When you get lost you can often find so many excuses to explain why you turned your back on Jesus and eventually you will have yourself convinced that life was just to hard and you couldn’t handle it so you gave up. 

But why did you give up? Did you forget that Jesus is with you always? Did you forget how far he brought you? Did you forget that without him you are nothing? Why did you choose to take your problems out on Jesus? Instead of turning your back on him you should instead turn your back on Satan!

We all think we have so much time to waste, so much time to just not be worried about Jesus but that’s just not true. Times are getting harder by the day and Jesus has spoke to me many times in the spirit and told me “my coming in nigh, any day now.” He also told me to go out into the world and tell his children that he is coming soon.

Don’t give up on Jesus! Give him a chance and let him fix what is bothering you. You have to overcome this world and not let the world overcome you. Jesus loves you so much and he wants to bring you home when the time comes but if you give up he cannot take you home, you will be left behind.

So many people I love will be lost to this world if they do not change they’re ways and it breaks my heart.

I can’t tell you that the journey is easy but I can tell you that it is worth it. Your journey is almost over just hold on a little bit longer. Don’t give up now, now is when you need Jesus the most. Take hold of his hand and don’t let go. 

Luke 12:30-40

“For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.”

There Is No Fear In Love

 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” – 1 John‬ ‭4:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

As most everyone knows, life can sometimes be hard. It’s not only hard to just live but it’s also often sometimes hard to love. 

However, love can always be found deep within our hearts. Finding that love is sometimes the struggle. People and just the world in general do not make it easy to spread love and to help one another.

Love is often not accepted these days and even sometimes not wanted. So how do you we love others? That’s a good question but you must also ask yourself “how does Jesus continue to love us?”

As humans it’s in our nature to make mistakes, do wrong and even fail God. But though all that is true he still continues to love us more than anything.

Through is sacrifice and determination to give us peace we often forget that he is the true definition of love.

Jesus gives us chance after chance, he comforts us in the bad times, loves us at our worst and listens to our problems when no one else will. 

With that being said also remember that Jesus is not always loved, sadly he is hated. But even through the hate and neglect he still loves us more than anything and he cries for those who do not know his love and that are lost.

So why can’t we love one another? Why can’t we love like Jesus? Never be afraid to show love. Love is forever and has existed since the beginning and will continue to exist forever. 

When you see someone that’s lost or discouraged instead of judging them try offering them love. Your love may not be accepted but at least you tried. 

Jesus wants us to love like he does: “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” -John‬ ‭15:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Do not fear love, do not fear showing it, do not fear anything at all. Why? Because you are never alone. Jesus is with you always and he will never let you down. Even if you deny him he will still be but a call away when you are ready to accept his love. 

Do not fear this world because you have the best protector watching over you and that’s Jesus.

Everyone has a call from Jesus at least once in they’re life. The sad part is that they don’t always answer it.

Starting out with Jesus seems so hard. You automatically think about the things you will have to let go to live for him. But how important are those things really? Even when you think about letting the bad people go in your life so that you can have salvation. If they were good for you then you wouldn’t have to let them go and why would you want something bad in your life?

Don’t be afraid to give your life to Jesus. You may be afraid someone will make fun of you, don’t be! They are foolish for making fun of something that is going to gain them eternal salvation or maybe they just don’t understand about Jesus. 

When someone doesn’t understand that’s when shining your spiritual light is very important. Shining your light means that when someone sees you they automatically know that you are good, that you are different and that you are someone that they can trust.

Spread the love of Jesus to people that doubt you and that doubt Jesus. Share your testimony of his love. Because you never know when your testimony might just be they jaw dropping moment when someone realizes the truth. 

Jesus is love. Fear is not love. Fear is of the enemy. He will tell you to be silent, to sit back and deny your gifts and your right as a child of God to praise the one true king. 

Don’t let the enemy rob you, rebuke him in the name of Jesus and claim victory over evil. After all, God and his children win in the end! That alone says it all.

“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” – ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


Sometimes my memories keep me awake at night. I have to pray it through until morning usually. I wish their was some type of pill you could take and it would erase everything bad from your past. 

People ask me why I never give up on God; my memories are my reminders of why I don’t. 

I can remember it all so clearly, as if it was happening right now. I can feel his hands around my throat and hear myself begging for him to just let me come home.

I also remember God, I remember the nights I lay beside that thing that was supposed to be a man and just prayed to make it through until morning without him raping me, beating me or trying to kill me. 

Each day as the light shown through the small window and touched my skin I was reminded of Gods love for me. He carried me through the fear and sadness.

People often can’t understand why I just can’t forget, move on, let it go, just be normal. How can I be those things when my mind is so scarred. 

While my heart has been repaired and made new my mind still remembers, it wants to forget but it can’t no matter how hard I try. 

As far as moving on, I have done the best that I can. God has carried me through, blessed me with a loving and amazing husband, and is preparing a life here on earth for me greater than I can imagine and even better than that, a home for me in heaven.

Sometimes the bad things seem like they are so heavy but in reality Gods got this, he’s always had it under control even when it seems so hopeless. 

I’ve been told that I should keep my story and problems to myself but I disagree. I know someone is out there right now feeling empty, hurt, abused, alone and scared. 

If you’re feeling that way please remember I’ve been there and if you need to talk I’ll listen and most importantly you have God. God is the best listener and your best friend when you feel all alone. 

NEVER let anyone or anything break you. God made you better than that, he made you stronger! Your story isn’t over, it’s just the beginning and everyone knows the good part of the story doesn’t come until the end. Hang on, be strong, trust God and pray. 

The Truth About Marriage

August 18, 2013 was the date and I can remember it so clearly. This year has made two years of being married to my husband and three years of knowing each other. Doesn’t sound like much does it? Honestly sometimes I don’t think it sounds like much but other times I feel like I have known Silas my entire life and that we are an old married couple. 

However, whether the time has been short or long it doesn’t change the fact of how much has happened in the past three years. We have had ups and downs like most couples but the good always outweighs the bad. 

People around us often anticipate what our marriage is like but honestly they have no idea. I have been anticipated to be a lazy housewife that expects her husband to cater to her every need, ha! Funny is not the word for that. My husband has been anticipated to be controlling and bossy and carefree to my needs, again I say ha!

People amuse me. These are just prime examples of the things no one warns you about BEFORE marriage. I came into this marriage not knowing that I would quickly turn into the bad guy and not knowing that my husband and I would both be judged harshly by everyone that surrounds us. No one talks about this stuff, it’s like a secret code or something.

No marriage is perfect however no marriage is what you may think it is. After telling you about what people think of our marriage now let me tell you the truth:

Silas and I are best friends and we tell each other everything and I do mean everything. We get angry at each other and sometimes we yell (I do most of the yelling) and sometimes we both go somewhere alone to cry but at the end of the day we always make up and we never go to bed upset and if we do my husband doesn’t sleep long because I wake him up to talk and cuddle and to make it better. 

Our chores are split evenly no matter where we are staying and we take care of each other which means we pick up after each other and such. 

We both have sick parents and sometimes we have to spend nearly a month apart to take care of our parents due to the fact that we are from different counties in Kentucky. Our parents are very important to us. 

Coming into this marriage we both had friends, Silas had more friends than I did but we still had to separate ourselves. Some of his friends didn’t like me and some just didn’t want they’re buddy to be married and some accepted me and actually became friends with me to. Silas and I both had to let people go so that we could make our marriage work.

Our relationship is not just a relationship it’s a friendship, partnership and a gift from God.

We entered our marriage both as sinners but a year later both gave our hearts to God. Our marriage became less stressful because we started letting God take control and letting God work our lives out. 

Still yet people wanted to hurt us and ruin what God has put together but it didn’t work. We really love each other and God really has blessed us and I know he has a plan for us both.

Don’t let people make you think marriage is easy sailing and don’t let them make you think it’s a bad thing. Marriage truly is a beautiful thing if you give it to God. 

Sometimes you will encounter people and situations where you have to stand up and speak your peace and then sometimes you have to bite your tongue and let go and let God. 

I’ve learned a lot about love since I met Silas. I’ve learned that it does exist and that it is possible for everyone to be loved but not just by a man or woman but also by God. 

If God has taken the time to bless you with a person of your own to comfort you, befriend you, love you and share your life with then that is one of the many examples that he loves you. 

While Satan has came in many forms and tried to ruin our marriage and our faith in God, he has failed. 

Remember, you are marrying one person, not the world. So don’t let other people break you or your marriage.

Even in the bad times my husband and I always pray together. We make sure we make time everyday and night to devote ourselves and our marriage to God. 

You can’t do this alone, and if you manage to its gonna be tough. Instead do it with God. Devote your love for one another to God and let him work things out, let him direct your path. 

So what’s the truth about marriage? The truth is it needs God, love, trust and faith in each other. While the world may try to ruin it for you remember these verses: “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”- ‭‭Mark‬ ‭10:6-9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Go and be in peace and love one another, do not let the worldly things of this world burden you. For what God has created cannot be broken as long as he is in the midst, amen!
