concentrate on our physical heart. We need to learn to release and dig up the pain and sorrows that have cast away the person we were or the person we were to become.There are over 900 specific scriptures in the Bible according to the Strong’s Concordance dealing with the word heart. The Bible talks a lot about the condition of the heart. We are going to look at many conditions, many insights, and many examples of
people of scripture that have dealt with and changed their hearts through faith and truth. There is a spiritual battle going on right now for your spiritual heart. There is a battle for your affection and your intimacy. We are going to learn about the spiritual heart and how God can make us new, whole, and complete; the way we are meant to be. There are
many matters of the heart spoke about in the Bible because the state of my heart and your heart really does matter!
realization is that our weapons are not carnal (of our own fleshly strength); you cannot fight spiritual wars with physical weapons. That is even good news because our wars are against spiritual powers. The only way to defeat spiritual powers is with spiritual weapons given by
God. Our next few chapters we will be talking about these weapons.
fruit.” Jesus chose twelve apostles that walked with him during three years of ministry here on earth. He commissioned them, ordained them, taught them, and empowered them. These twelve were to be the foundation of the Church we see today. Jesus, who is the chief
cornerstone, along with the foundation of the apostles and prophets who make up the spiritual house (Church) today. (Ephesians 2:20) Even today, the Lord Jesus is calling and choosing many to build his Church.
I wanted to center
around the five stages of death and dying, but did not want to just
stay there. To better explain, I feel these stages as they have been
presented really only touch on the emotional aspects of these stages.
I believe you not only have the emotional, but physical and also
spiritual. We have all these interacting with each other whether you
are dying in the physical, experience dying of a characteristic or
even experience death as you deal with the pending loss and loss of a
loved one. God can surely fill the loss, heal the hurts, or give a
life replacement to those things that have died. I have experienced a
loss of parents, relatives, friends, and a brother. It has been
several years since my brother has died. There is healing there and
acceptance, but still a grief and sadness still. God could assuredly
heal the pain I am going through and has for the most part. I asked
God to even remove some more of the grief too, but his response was
that if he did that he would have to remove the memories. Memories
bring back the grief, but also reinforce the joy of the life I had
lived with. So, In that instance or example, I would not want this to
I hope you have been blessed with not only knowledge, but wisdom when it comes to finances and the Kingdom of God. I believe with all my heart that if you learn these principles that were given to me by God and apply them, you will be blessed abundantly above all you could ask or think. We need to not only know the word and the principles contained in the Bible, but we need to apply them also. The word works, especially if we work it. We cannot be just hearers of the word, but also doers of the word. (James 1:22) Remember, you cannot out give our God. Obedience, faithfulness, faith, and trust will never go unrewarded.
This initially did not start out as my journey or even as a book. It began as smaller blogs on my Facebook page: TRUTH FOR TODAY. I headed this blog up as “Writing of the Week”. Each week I would write about one of the books I have written. These not only promoted these books but also there was a lot of insight written in them. There was a lot of history of the past several years when I started becoming an Christian Author. I began this journey in 1997, maybe even some preparation and rejection several years earlier.
I decided to compile all of these blogs into one file. I thought that this might be a good thing to place on my author page as an introduction to myself and my writings. I started reviewing these and these not only told about each book and subject matter, but also about my history that I was going through. It told of my success and also told of my failures. It revealed my frustrations, but also revealed my faith. It revealed my faith, my walk with the Lord over several years and also how I had grown in that walk. Honestly, I stand back and look at all these and am amazed at what the Lord had built. Yes, I said what the Lord has built through me.
These also tell about me. Tells about me as a writer, but also tells about me as a person. You get to know the content of these writings, but you get to know the writer of all these books. Maybe it would still have been a good post on an author page, but the more I looked at this and read this, it has so much information and teaching, it also is a great book and biography on myself. This will teach you how to get into writing if you are interested. It will teach you about electronic book technology. First you have to have the desire to write, but this technology is really simple once you learn this and dive into it. It doesn't matter if you are a Christian Author,, a children's book author, a non-fiction or fiction author. The process is the same. It is virtually no cost to you but can reap many benefits.
I thought making this free was a good idea, but at low cost, there is so many values and benefits to buying. I know you will find this interesting and insightful. You will learn much in this one writing that you would learn in years of experience. It will make you think and meditate about many subjects. It will test and try your faith. But it will motivate you to begin. Everything begins with just one step; one small step of faith. At the very least it will introduce you to the different books I have written and which ones may be of more interest to your particular tastes or what you may be going through and thinking about now. Be Blessed in all you do. Do everything as unto the Lord and you will prosper in all you do.

earth that many do strive for. The treasures on earth are those that moths and rust corrupt or thieves take and steal. Those are not the treasures we are going to write about here. The Lord said; “Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and
all things (perfect gifts) will be added (given) unto you.” We seek first the eternal things above and get earthly treasures too; seek only earthly treasures and those are the only things you will receive.
have been impressed and directed by the Lord to do a booklet on
grace. Many things get accomplished when this happens. One of the
main things is that he teaches me and gives me greater revelation and
understanding about grace. With this understanding, I not only can
write effectively but also learn more about my Father and what grace
really is. I believe that this is one of the most misunderstood terms
in the Church today not only with the followers of Jesus, but also
the ministers of the gospel. Let us take this journey of grace
together so we all may be partakers of his grace and givers of that
but mainly and more importantly at the building of our attitudes, character, and souls to be Kingdom and Heavenly people. Jesus taught the people about being blessed and being a blessing. We will learn and inherit Heavenly character traits and attitudes that will not only last
here on earth, but will extend into Eternity. May you be Blessed, but even greater than that, may you learn to be a Blessing to first Our Father in Heaven and others around you.
began writing this book in 2005. I was drawn to write it for several
reasons. First, The Lord wants his people to Pray without Ceasing.
Secondly, this is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray; the
biblical outline and importance of Praise & Kingdom first before
our own needs. Jesus also used this to say; “Get in your prayer
closets.” (His statement before he recited this prayer) More
accurately become more intimate with me. Jesus asked and is asking
all; “Could you not pray with me for “one hour”. These have
not changed today and only have increased in importance. The Lord is
now confirming His Word by saying; “My House shall be a House of
Prayer” YOU ARE THAT HOUSE OF PRAYER!
Jesus? What enters your mind and your heart as you read, speak, or hear this name? Does this name bring out anger, confusion, or praise when you hear the name of Jesus? Every name has a meaning which I believe also speaks of your purpose and destiny. The very name Jesus means “Jehovah Saves”. Jehovah is the Hebrew word meaning God. Jehovah also means self-Existent and Eternal. God who has always been, not created, but existing always and eternally. God is the one who creates, not the one created. These are concepts that can only be grasped by faith and faith alone. Through faith you believe and through faith you are saved.
