Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

He…

It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.~John Wooden ~

Great scriptures for meditation. (smile) Great scriptures to speak and replace bad thoughts. There will be days when speaking the Word out loud can change the focus. The power of words and what we tell ourself.

Sometimes, remembering not to entertain negative and bad thoughts, by speaking and replacing with positive and kind words, breaks the cycle of emotions and questioning how did I get here moments. (shock face)

It takes just one wrong thought to change a good mood. Renewing the mind, one thought at a time, helps the cycle of emotions! Sometimes, God will bless us by leading us to read something or hear something to let us know He is with us! He may even use someone. (smile)

Here’s a short and beautiful testimony of mine. Awhile back, I was singing a song hard, I mean out loud and with feeling. (cheesy smile) I shared with you before that I talk to The Lord all the time. About everything.

When I was singing the song, one line in the song is “so say you love me.” I spoke out loud to The Lord, I know you love me, so say you love me. Just say it. I laughed and went on about my business. (smile)

The next day, my friend was coming to work and out of no where, she heard God say tell Ann, I love her. Well at this point, she felt like, she already knows that, she will think I am crazy. (smile) Unbeknown to either of us, that day, we learned just how God can use open vessels, anytime, anywhere and our choice of obedience. Glory to God!

She started to compose an email message but never got to finish it because God led me to her. We started talking then she said, I have to tell you something and don’t think I’m crazy or snap I already know that. I agreed. When she said God told me to tell you He loves you. I was stunned and she was curious. (smile)

I laughed and explained about the night before and the song. (smile) See she thought she could email the message. As we talked about it, she realized she had to say His words to me not write them for me to know He answered my request. (smile) My relationship grew rapidly with Him from that point forward because He answered me up close and personal. No one knew what I said to Him! (smile)

We both got a huge lesson in faith and obedience that day, as well as, how God can communicate to us through others. It was a powerful and beautiful experience with The Lord that strengthen our faith in God and helped a few others who heard the story! We are in Virginia, that story made it all the way to Georgia! (smile)

Sometimes, when we’re going through stuff, we forget all the previous times He came through for us. Keep the faith! Pray!

So be blessed, my friends, and know He is always with us! (smile) As always, your comments are welcome. (smile)

It’s interesting.This is like the 3rd or 4th time I’ve heard the little things adding up to the bigger picture notion this week. Must be God trying to tell me something. Thank you for your obedience!
