I speak to many people from all walks of life and faiths and they share with me their problems and concerns.  After they are finished I ask them, “Do you pray about this and tell our Heavenly Father?”  Most of them say, “No He’s too busy.”  Or, “I'm mad at Him and haven’t prayed for years. It wouldn’t make any difference anyway.”

Most of the time when your life seems to have many struggles or complications and you don’t have any kind of relationship with Father; this could be His way of getting your attention.  He doesn’t punish ever, but He does greatly encourage people to come to Him.  He is not human in any way.  So to Him it doesn’t matter how long you haven’t spoken to Him.  He doesn’t hold a grudge.  He'd just like to hear from you.

Then they say to me, “I wouldn’t even know how to start to talk to Him.”  I tell them to begin like this.  “Hi, my life sucks please help me.”  It's as easy as that.  There's no formal way that you need to approach Him.  I don’t care what any of the religions say about this.  You don’t need to “suck up” to Him or as I like to say; “butter His muffin.”  He's not an idiot or clueless to your situation.  He wants YOU to tell Him what you feel and what you need.  All you need is a little faith and trust in Him.

Prayer life should never be a drudgery.  It should NEVER be habit either.  Don’t pray to just pray!  Don’t repeat things over and over again, either. He’s not deaf!  And yes He can hear you.  You have to treat Him like a friend.  Would you discuss the same things over and over again repeating the same things every day with your best friend in life?  You would not!  They'd probably smack you in the back of the head and ask what’s wrong with you?!  If you are tired as you go to bed at night don’t drone on and on not making any sense.  Tell Him you love Him and you’ll talk to Him in the morning when you're coherent.  He'll appreciate that.

A prayer is but a conversation.  It's intimate, it's to the point and it should be filled with respect and love for Him.  You don’t have to praise Him before you ask Him for help.  If you don’t feel like praising Him don’t.  Again, He sees your heart so you are not fooling Him.

Some people are afraid to ask Him for anything.  WHY?!  Didn’t Jesus say; If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."   MATTHEW 21:22 (NIV)  Do you know that when Jesus was in the garden praying before the soldiers came to have Him crucified that His entire prayer was for Himself?!  He asked Father for all He would need, nothing else!  So is it so wrong to ask Father for things just for ourselves?  NO it’s not!  "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”   MATTHEW 7:7 (NIV)

Many say; “If He knows my heart then why do I need to tell Him?”  Again, how do you build a relationship with someone?  Wouldn’t it be by talking with them and getting to know them?  Have you ever asked Him how His day is going?  Wouldn’t that be a surprise if He told you?!  LOL!

Now what about Jesus?  Do you pray and talk to Him too?  Why not?!  He’s standing by Father’s side listening.  I can tell you there have been many times when I have prayed and prayed and asked Father time and again for an answer and nothing comes.  So the next thing I do is talk with my Big Brother Jesus.  I ask Him to explain to Father why I feel the way I do about this situation and wouldn’t you know a few days later I get my answer.  Try it!

They are as real as we are.  They feel the same emotions we feel.  There is nothing that you could ever hide from Them.  They WANT to hear from you.  Open your heart, build your relationship now.  And be amazed at how fast He answers your prayer.  I DARE YOU TO TRY IT!

Tough Time?

I’m standing now at the end of a grand disappointment.  A promise given but not fulfilled.  So many times an expectation is given and only then I find that it doesn’t come to fruition. It’s then I begin to question everything I know that lies within my heart and soul.  I do not understand or appreciate the process that He puts me through and I ask at times why…WHY?!

I grow angry and I lash out at Him in a fit of rage reminding Him of all I have done in His name and all the lives that have changed because of my faithful service to Him.  I remind Him of all the times I gave to Him and the sacrifices I have made and yet there is no solace, no peace and hope is almost gone. 

Doubt comes crashing in on me and sadness fills my being as I start to question EVERYTHING  and then I hear the voice of an evil angel say; All you know is a lie!  If He really loved you would He really do this to you?   But I’m tired, distraught and weak as the evil angel continues,  He is never there for you when you are like this.  He cannot hear you, He has left you.  You should give up.”

I try to pull myself together struggling to be strong.  And the evil voice still speaks; You are lost and alone, He will never help you.  You are a failure no one loves you”.   I fall into the abyss that is my life crying out, PLEASE ANSWER ME!  But again no reply.  The evil angel continues to speak and torment me until I grow angry at him and shout. YOU’RE A COWARD!  YOU PREY ON THE WEAK AND THE SICK!  He speaks; “Your faith is empty, you trust Him and yet He never does what you ask of Him, what kind of God is like that?  HE is a Faithful God?  Please!”    

My heart feels as if it will burst out of my chest with the agony and pain of my disappointment.  Hopelessness sets in and I think I have been walled off from Him and He cannot even see me.  I’m left sitting in darkness as my pain and anger feed on the disappointment as the evil angel feeds it to me.  I’m worn out and close to giving in to what he’s telling me.  I break down and cry out as loud as I can.  FATHER I LOVE YOU AND I WILL KEEP MY FAITH!  I AM NOT ALONE!  I AM STRONGER THAN YOU ARE SATAN!  MY FATHER IS WITH ME RIGHT NOW!  I SHINE THE BRIGHTEST IN MY DARKEST HOURS BECAUSE HE IS HOLDING ME!  HE ALWAYS KEEPS HIS WORD AND WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT HE WILL DELIVER TO ME ALL OF HIS PROMISES!  

I seek out this evil angel and I find him hiding in my heart.  I grab him by the throat and hold him in front of me as this little being cowers because the spirit in me is stronger than he.  I tell him; “You are but a pawn in my Father’s game.  He is the one who moves the pieces within the game of my life”.  I stare him square in the eye and ask him; “Why are you so silent?  Is it because you can see MY FAMILY standing behind me now?”  I cast him out of my heart, turn and I am now in the arms of my Father and Big Brother Jesus.
There are times in our lives where WE have to turn and fight!  We are never alone!  Don’t listen to Satan; do not give into his words.  CONFRONT HIM AND HE MUST FLEE!  Our Father always teaches us that we are not weak or helpless. We’re strong because we Love Him and He loves us!
There two things that are yours and you truly posses; One is your free-will and the other is your faith.


I dedicate this article to my two special friends who both fight terminal illnesses and have been told by their doctor’s that they have months to live.  These two are not done fighting!

I have not written for a while.  With the events of the past few months I feel it necessary to write something. 

We are living in THE end time right now where everyone is centered on themselves.  There is no more tolerance, empathy, compassion, and there is no understanding for each other.  No one can express themselves without retaliation from somebody.  Everyone is so closed- minded that when someone tries to express themselves they feel threatened. 

Some people are now losing control.  They go out of their way to hurt people in public places because of their religious views or because they are crying out for help or they just want to make a point.  We have countries that are threatening us with war.  It seems that the fabric of society is being torn apart from the inside out.  There is very little peace, stress keeps building and the planet is being swept with fear.

This is nothing new within the history of mankind.  This has been going on for millennia.  Perhaps you would think that all of this is born out of society’s ignorance, or inability to understand ourselves.  And to a point all of this might be true.

There is a side of our lives that very few are willing to accept, understand and work with.  It is not seen with the human eye, you cannot touch it with your hand but you certainly can feel it.  It is a side of our life that everyone knows exists.  Most try to ignore it.  They pretend it's not real.  Or they are so afraid of it that they dare not even speak of it.  Or they accept it when it's a convenience for them. It is known as our "spiritual" side of life.

This side of our life is not completely clear all the time. There are times where we feel we completely understand what is going on within ourselves. Then there are times when we are completely lost.  The one thing that needs to always be there for us is our faith in God.

Most people know that Satan exists, and there are spirits and demons that are active today. Very few people want to accept that these three common foes are influencing them at times. 

Do you know that your thoughts are not your own all the time? Any time a negative thought comes into your mind it originates from them. And because you have your own free will you get to  decide whether you listen to them or not. They simply plant a small thought in your mind and then you are the one who lets it grow. Every argument, every fight and every war started with one person and one thought.

Are you a puppet in Satan's hand? Do you automatically let every thought motivate you; or do you weigh where does this thought come from? Are you a victim of your own mind? Are you helpless? Are you a fool?

I can tell you that every negative thought that comes into your mind is born out of the hand of Satan. His entire purpose is to confuse, to manipulate, to control, to create separation, to create doubt and then, to destroy us!  I would ask this question, why would you listen to him?! Why would you let him control you like some mindless puppet?

I don't know about you but for me every thought that comes into my mind, I weigh. If it is a negative thought I tell that spirit that is behind me to go away. If it is a positive thought then I let it build, I let it motivate me because it comes from God. All positive things that build something good and help are from Him and His spirits.

We are at war with Satan he has had a lot more time than we have to understand who we are and how we react to life. And our Heavenly Father will only allow Satan and his forces to influence us to a point. So I have often told Satan and his evil servants that they are puppets in our Fathers hand.

You are stronger than you think. You are not weak or helpless and you are certainly not puppets! Put your faith in our Heavenly Father asked him for wisdom to know what it is that is talking to you and when you realize it is not a positive spirit you can invoke Christ's name and tell it to leave. This is your life!  You have your own free will to choose what you will do every day. Will you still be a puppet?
