I have a dear friend who is a single parent.  At age 8 her son is bullied at school.  He is a most tender heart, who is born again and baptized.   This week he really took  it to heart and ended up in the ER.

As a christian we know the thing to do is trust in God for the answers.  As a mother this makes us fighting mad!  When I went to see this little one in the hospital I assured him God was going to use this in a good way, maybe he will be a christian counselor one day, or a missionary in a third world country.  He smiled and shook his head as if they were both good ideas.

That very day he was offered a very low tuition fee at a  Christian school.  I was not there when I gave his mother the news, but she was overjoyed and I pictured him jumping for joy.  (that I cannot verify)  There he will hopefully flourish among the other children and for Jesus.

Let us pray for the parents who have children that bully and the children themselves that they will one day know the Lord as their personal Savior and know love not hate.

Thank you for your prayers.

In Christ’s love, heartfulandhopeful

baptism grapesOn September 8th, 2014 my Grandaughter Olivia at the age of 8 was baptised. This is done by immersion of a believer in water, in the name of Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Baptism represents the crucifixion, burial and resurrection in Christ.  (Matthew 28:19-20)

I think those of us who are grandparents can agree that the birth of a grandchild is a very precious and emotional experience to us.  Because Olivia had accepted Jesus as her Savior, this day of my granddaughter’ s baptism was far more meaningful as in that we would now spend eternity together.  Because we have both professed our faith and confessed our sins, receiving into our hearts as our Savior Jesus Christ who died on the cross and rose again to join His Father in heaven we will be together in this place He has prepared for us.

(John 14:1-3) In the Bible says-“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that were I am, there you may be also.”

If you would like to join your family and friends  in heaven, remember this: “For GOD so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)  You cannot enter Heaven but by Him.  Jesus says in (John 14:6)  “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

Do not let yourself and your loved ones get left behind when He returns in the clouds for those of us who have given ourselves unto Him, by confessing all of our sins, asking Jesus to come into our hearts as our Savior with baptism and following in His footsteps to spread His plan of salvation.

Yours in Christ, heartfulandhelpful

God’s Love For Me.

Some how this year I find myself either with less time to get things done or I am mismanaging my time. Either way I have found in all of life’s demands that if I do not make time for God, He reminds me in big ways.

These days I have to make lists, reminders, calendar appointments or I will sure enough forget something. That’s ok though, I like to mess with electronics and all the fun apps that go with them.  But really, I cannot slice some time in for God that way! Why not? Because He is my life.  He is the one who controls every things I do.  Without Him I wouldn’t have the brain to make those lists and reminders.

How does God remind me when I am forgetful of Him?  Well did you ever say to yourself right after something bad happens,”everything was going so well then this had to happen to mess it all up? ” Know what that was, it was God reminding you that you thought you could do it all yourself, you forgot to consult Him.  You had so much fun doing whatever you wanted to do that week that you forgot all about the only One who can give you the overwhelming joy that you need in your life.  Everyone else can be down on you, yet God is always there to love you.

Have you found yourself saying that this world is a mess and what is going to become of it? How am I going to raise my children and what is to become of my grandchildren with all the hate in this world? I have the answer, it is God.  And if you do not have Him in your life you better make some arrangements to get Him quick.  Not only will you have your fellow Christians to turn to when things get very ugly and they will, but you will have eternal life in the most beautiful place you can imagine.

“Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him.”  (Hebrews 9:28) ESV

Well I got so busy in April I for the first time forgot to write my blog!  How embarrassing.   I’m going to forgive myself though because what I have been doing is for God.   In my volunteer work I read and answer emails from all over the world and try to help people with the Lord to guide me with their problems and salvation.   I am humbled by these emails.  The sorrows of people in need just amaze  me.   I have sobbed reading them.

Addictions of all kinds, abuse, culture problems.  Most people want to find help though God.  When I read  I thank God for sending this person to me.  I pray for wisdom and for the Holy Spirit to put the words in my mouth, to comfort them and to be able to tell them how salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord is the only kind of help they need.

The more emails I do, the closer I feel to the Lord.  When I am searching for a verse that will help someone, I am learning the Bible more and more with each email.  I am calling upon the Holy Spirit, learning to listen for the answer I seek.  This is the best non-paying job I have ever had!  Well actually if I think about I am getting paid.  Not monies, but Joy, love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…Galatians 5:22.  All these things are heightened now, I am constantly aware that I need to be all these things to serve the Lord.

I want to thank my husband and my mother who live with me for allowing me to spend time reading and answering these emails.  I know it takes time away from them.   Pray for me to be able witness to others about God’s love and salvation.

Yours in Christ’s love, heartfulandhelpful,

Hi E,  I love you. Grandmother

We have had the pleasure of having a few of our Missionary’s home and sharing the love of the Lord with them.  I love when we ladies of the church get together to appreciate our Missionary’s, everyone brings a little food and we listen to the  stories of how God works in the souls of people who have very little hope, who have believed in false God’s all their life.  It amazes me the creative ways that the story of Jesus is brought to people of different countries.  The language barriers that must be won and culture that are learned.  I think Missionary’s are amazing!

Live and love like Jesus. Keep growing in the Lord. Abiding in Christ. Your first love is Christ, He should be your number one. Psalm 56:3  “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.”  1 Thessalonians 2:24-26  “And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”  Psalm 18:31-32  ‘For who is God, except the Lord?  And the rock, except our God?  It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect.”

These are a few things we spoke of and prayed on.  I found them a great comfort.   I hope you will as well.

Yours in Christ love,  heartfulandhopeful


I will never fail you

Journey with God

In this life there are many trials, tribulations, and hardships. Without God at the helm, we find ourselves at a loss for hope and peace that fills us and gives us something to live for. This blog is a place for me to share the hope God gives me despite the circumstances I face and to extend that hope and love to others. May it be an inspiration and blessing to your heart!
