Chrstmas is the Best Time of the Year!


 This weekend was very, very busy. We had an outreach at our church. We were giving away toys and salvation. That's right. The people that came through for toys had to go through a check out point. Once they had gone through, they were sent to the next station. I'll call it the Salvation station. Several people were there to pray with the people and share the salvation message with them. Over one hundred people accepted Christ through that alone. There's more.

The wisemen bring an offering.
  On Sunday, we had a special service. We had a guest speaker, giveaways, special activities for the kids, and lunch afterward. Our dance team also performed a human video to "This is Christmas" by Kutless.  The lyrics of the song asked have we lost the reason for Christmas. The first verse showed a couple dealing with the pressure of a modern day Christmas. The second showed the Christmas story. In the end the angels, couple, signers, and wisemen recognize Jesus as the reason for the season.

Glorifying the Lord.

After that, Riley Stephenson, with Kenneth Copeland Ministries, spoke and asked anyone who wanted to accept the Lord to come to the front. Now, I had worked at the Salvation station, so I had spoken to a couple of people I knew I wanted to go forward. One of them didn't, but another was sitting there and I walked over and asked if she would come up. And (Thank you Jesus!!!) she came up with me. Riley was done leading everyone in the praye,r so I got to pray with her. It blessed me so much!! And I think she was blessed, too. That was the best part of the whole weekend fo me!

I thank the Lor dfor what He has done this week in the hearts of His people. He is so, so faithful. Remember that.

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!!

Jesus truly is the reason for the season.

What's going on.

Last night we preformed a 1940's Homecoming. It went really well! We have another performance tomorrow. It's been a great experience and I've gotten to know some more people at my church. ( Yeah, almost two years and I'm still getting to know people! It's a big church!)
Now I start getting ready for Teen Talent. I'm excited about that! (Teen Talent is a national contest through PCG (Pentecostal Church of God). It starts at District, goes to Regionals, and then Nationals. I've only done it one year, but it is a lot of fun! But, more on that later.)

The next week is going to be BUSY! We have a lot of stuff going on, so I may not get a chance to post anything for a little while. 

Well, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

Decorating the Tree Tradition

Christmas. It's finally here!! It really is my favorite time of the year.

We put up our tree last night and opened the first doors in our Advent book. I told my mom it's almost like magic opening those doors. They hold so many memories of past Christmases. So does decorating our tree. 

At our house, everyone receives a yearly ornament. My parents started this tradition long before any of us kids were born, so we have lots of ornaments. This is how it works. (tentatively)

First we unpack the ornaments. Then, we categorize them by year with varied difficulty, depending on whether we have the list telling us which ones belong in which year. We often make homemade cocoa during this process. Another unofficial tradition, of which, we have many. Then we gather the whole family and decorate the tree.

They start in 1983, when my dad gave my mom a tinsel wire shaped to say "I Love you" in cursive. It's falling apart, the letters are crooked and stretched out, but it is the first ornament that is officially placed on our tree each year. Then, come several years worth of ornaments representing the different events of each year. We kids are supposed to be quiet until we are "born", but with Mom telling us the stories behind each ornament, and the excitement of decorating the tree, you can just imagine how well that tradition gets followed.

Next my big brother is born, my Grandma Barb gets cancer and my family can't go because they are all sick, so on goes the pocket-sized Kleenex tissue. No really, it's a package of Kleenex!

Then, I was born!!! And the world rejoiced, for---- okay, so nothing could have prepared them for me.  Two years later, my little brother is born and my Grandma dies. Two more years later, my little sister is born. For the next couple of years, we live in the country, then move to town to be closer to my dad's work. The next big thing that happened was we moved back to Carthage, our hometown. Back to our friends and our Grandma Judy. We live in Carthage for a couple more years, then move to where we are now.

The year was 2009 and my little brother and my sister and I all had strep throat. Our mom was sick, too. We kids got medicine and were fine, but my mom was just getting worse. The day we took her to the emergency room she looked like zombie. She had phenemomia, and we kids thought she was going to die. Dad had to make Christmas that year. It was a hard for us all. Then, we received the best Christmas gift ever; Mom came home on Christmas Eve. She was on medication, and she didn't look good, but that probably was one of the best Christmas Eves ever. It's right up there with Grandma Judy breaking her nose! But that's not part of this story. Our ornaments for that year varied, but the most memorable is my mom's hospital bracelet.

The next year was the Paper Route. My dad was in Kansas City working, and my mom, my little siblings, and I had to run a paper route for all of December. Amazingly we all survived, although at times we didn't think we could. Our ornaments for that year are, rubber bands with our names on them for us kids, a Mingo card for my brother, and the Christmas newspaper for my Mom and Dad's.

2011 was a year of change. The Joplin tornado hit, and our lives changed drastically spiritually and physically. We changed churches, my dad changed jobs, we housed hundreds of volunteers, and a lot more. Our ornaments were homemade out of Scrabble pieces. Each of us kid's spelled our names and my parents' read BLESSED.

This year we added a snowman for each person.

This is one of my very favorite traditions. One I will carry on to my family.

Merry Christmas!

 It's the best time of the year! I really enjoy all the hustle and bustle. I guess it's because I like to be busy with activities; a lot of activities. Which can be a bit of a problem sometimes. We have to be careful that our focus is on God and not just the activity of the season.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

God Bless America!!

Hi everybody! I just got back from American Government Camp. Sounds boring, right? No. I had a ton of fun and learned a lot. My most memorable lit-drop (taking pamphlets to people's houses) experience happened before lunch on Saturday. We were in Lee Summit hitting doors, as we had been assigned to do. I went up to this house and knocked; an old man came to the door and I started in on my script.
" Hi, I'm a volunteer with the Republican party and Mitt Romney. I have some information on the upcoming election. Would you like some?"
" Well," he said, "I'm a staunch Democrat, but I'd kill the president we have in office now."
I stepped back in surprise. " You're a democrat, but you'd kill the president?"
" Well, I'd make you think he was dying."
" Okay," I said. " Would you like the information anyway?"
" Yeah, I'll give to my landlord."
" OK, you have a nice day."
" You, too."
Most definitely the most memorable!!
Second, (that will most likely live on in the hearts of, well, myself and a few others)
is the catcall. Now, bear in mind that we all got up around 4:00 o'clock in the morning and we were exhausted from the day before, not to mention the work we had been doing that day.
Saturday night, we all phone banked. The day before, team B.O.B. (my team) had gotten the Akin phones (we were campaigning specifically for him on them), so we had to use cell phones that night. Therefore, a bunch of us were in a back room making phone calls.
Now, our first mistake was to have Lydia (a girl form my team) and I sitting beside each other. Come to think of it, having any of the girls sitting with each other probably was a bad idea. You'll see why in a minute.
Anyway, we had been calling for maybe a hour or so, when I made this call.
It rang once, twice, thrice, four times, and then picked up. But no one answered.
Then, of course, like any girl who got up at 4 a.m. is bound to do, (or at any time for that matter) I leaned over and told Lydia.
" I got one like that, too," she exclaimed.
" Well," I said. " I wonder if I cat jumped up and knocked the phone off the receiver or something. But, I didn't hear a crash, or a meow, or anything."
We laughed for nearly 5 minutes.
We couldn't help ourselves. They had to send us out of the room so we wouldn't disturb everyone. When we finally got control of ourselves and we had told our story a few times, it wasn't that funny. But, the experience was!
So now, when I get a call like that, I call it a... Catcall!!
I had a great time, and I'm looking forward to coming back in couple years! Of course these are only a few experiences, we were there for a whole week! I miss my friends already and can't wait to see them again!
Teen for the Lord
I don't know about y'all, but we were all depressed when we heard the results of the election. A lot of us cried and a bunch of us ended up standing in front of a cross on the camp grounds praying for  each other and our country.
No matter who is president, God is always Infinite. And no matter what our government says, we still have our God given rights of Life and Liberty.

I know this is long, but please take the time to read this. It's worth it. : )
Scientific Facts in the Bible

1. Only in recent years has science discovered that everything we see is composed of invisible atoms. Here, Scripture tells us that the "things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

2. Medical science has only recently discovered that blood-clotting in a newborn reaches its peak on the eighth day, then drops. The Bible consistently says that a baby must be circumcised on the eighth day.

3. At a time when it was believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant (1500 B.C.), the Bible spoke of the earth’s free float in space: "He...hangs the earth upon nothing" (Job 26:7).

4. The prophet Isaiah also tells us that the earth is round: "It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:22). This is not a reference to a flat disk, as some skeptic maintain, but to a sphere. Secular man discovered this 2,400 years later. At a time when science believed that the earth was flat, is was the Scriptures that inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world (see Proverbs 3:6 footnote).

5. God told Job in 1500 B.C.: "Can you send lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, Here we are?" (Job 38:35). The Bible here is making what appears to be a scientifically ludicrous statement—that light can be sent, and then manifest itself in speech. But did you know that radio waves travel at the speed of light? This is why you can have instantaneous wireless communication with someone on the other side of the earth. Science didn’t discover this until 1864 when "British scientist James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light waves were two forms of the same thing" (Modern Century Illustrated Encyclopedia).

6. Job 38:19 asks, "Where is the way where light dwells?" Modern man has only recently discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a "way," traveling at 186,000 miles per second.

7. Science has discovered that stars emit radio waves, which are received on earth as a high pitch. God mentioned this in Job 38:7: "When the morning stars sang together..."

8. "Most cosmologists (scientists who study the structures and evolution of the universe) agree that the Genesis account of creation, in imagining an initial void, may be uncannily close to the truth" (Time, Dec. 1976).

9. Solomon described a "cycle" of air currents two thousand years before scientists "discovered" them. "The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits" (Ecclesiastes 1:6).

10. Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power, and motion. Genesis 1:1,2 revealed such truths to the Hebrews in 1450 B.C.: "In the beginning [time] God created [power] the heaven [space] and the earth [matter] . . . And the Spirit of God moved [motion] upon the face of the waters." The first thing God tells man is that He controls of all aspects of the universe.

11. The great biological truth concerning the importance of blood in our body’s mechanism has been fully comprehended only in recent years. Up until 120 years ago, sick people were "bled," and many died because of the practice. If you lose your blood, you lose your life. Yet Leviticus 17:11, written 3,000 years ago, declared that blood is the source of life: "For the life of the flesh is in the blood."

12. All things were made by Him (see John 1:3), including dinosaurs. Why then did the dinosaur disappear? The answer may be in Job 40:15–24. In this passage, God speaks about a great creature called "behemoth." Some commentators think this was a hippopotamus. However, the hippo’s tail isn’t like a large tree, but a small twig. Following are the characteristics of this huge animal: It was the largest of all the creatures God made; was plant-eating (herbivorous); had its strength in its hips and a tail like a large tree. It had very strong bones, lived among the trees, drank massive amounts of water, and was not disturbed by a raging river. He appears impervious to attack because his nose could pierce through snares, but Scripture says, "He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him." In other words, God caused this, the largest of all the creatures He had made, to become extinct.

13. Encyclopedia Britannica documents that in 1845, a young doctor in Vienna named Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was horrified at the terrible death rate of women who gave birth in hospitals. As many as 30 percent died after giving birth. Semmelweis noted that doctors would examine the bodies of patients who died, then, without washing their hands, go straight to the next ward and examine expectant mothers. This was their normal practice, because the presence of microscopic diseases was unknown. Semmelweis insisted that doctors wash their hands before examinations, and the death rate immediately dropped to 2 percent. Look at the specific instructions God gave His people for when they encounter disease: "And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself even days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean" (Leviticus 15:13). Until recent years, doctors washed their hands in a bowl of water, leaving invisible germs on their hands. However, the Bible says specifically to wash hands under "running water."

14. Luke 17:34–36 says the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will occur while some are asleep at night and others are working at daytime activities in the field. This is a clear indication of a revolving earth, with day and night at the same time.

15. "During the devastating Black Death of the fourteenth century, patients who were sick or dead were kept in the same rooms as the rest of the family. People often wondered why the disease was affecting so many people at one time. They attributed these epidemics to ‘bad air’ or ‘evil spirits.’ However, careful attention to the medical commands of God as revealed in Leviticus would have saved untold millions of lives. Arturo Castiglione wrote about the overwhelming importance of this biblical medical law: ‘The laws against leprosyin Leviticus 13 may be regarded as the first model of sanitary legislation’ (A History of Medicine)." Grant R. Jeffery, The Signature of God With all these truths revealed in Scripture,how could a thinking person deny that the Bible is supernatural in origin? There is no other book in any of the world’s religions (Vedas, Bhagavad-Gita, Koran, Book of Mormon, etc.) that contains scientific truth. In fact, they contain statements that are clearly unscientific. Hank Hanegraaff said, "Faith in Christ is not some blind leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established evidence." (11:3 continued)

   No matter what decade it is, God is ever revealing Himself to those who will listen to His voice; through His word, dreams, visions, and dark speech (parables, riddles, mysteries), communication with Him, and through His creation (Romans 1: 20). Seek and you will find. He always has a line open.

God Bless You!

  Have you ever really, really wanted something? But you couldn't afford it so you asked God to provide it for you? Did you wonder if it was bad to ask God to give you something so materialistic? Well, that was me when I wanted a Mp3 player. I knew I could really use one, but I didn't know what to get, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. So I asked God to provide a way for me to get one.
   Now, I'm one of those people who, if they think they've made a mistake of they're not sure of what to do in a situation, they obsess about it and get really frustrated with themselves and God, or they just keep looking for an answer instead of waiting for God to work things out. That was what I was doing. I was worried I was wrong in asking Him to provide an Mp3 for me and I wasn't sure if it was something I had to do on my own or if God would step in and save the day. ( By the way, you never have to do anything alone. He is your Father and He wants to help you and bless you.)
    BUT, I DIDN'T NEED TO STRESS ABOUT IT!!!  All I needed to do was "to seek first the kingdom of heaven" and all these things would be added unto me. Matthew 6:33  He had it all figured out, and He answered me in a very different way than I expected. My dad gave me his Mp3!!
      You see!! When you are seeking God, He is pleased and will bless you. But, He doesn't want you to get stressed out about it. The Bible says, "Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition ( definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God". Philippians 4:6

    Number one, don't worry.
    Number two, in all circumstances
    Number three, by prayer, petition, and THANKSGIVING (don't complain all the time) continue to make your wants known to God

    So, it's not wrong to want things and to ask God to help us get things. HE CARES ABOUT YOUR WANTS JUST AS MUCH AS HE CARES ABOUT YOUR NEEDS. He loves you and wants to bless you. So don't shun the blessing. Receive it.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

Make Do Cookies

One of our family traditions is to make chocolate chip cookies when it rains. Well, the other day it started to rain , so I decided to make  C.C.C. Well, come to find out that we didn't have any chocolate chips. :( But, we did have Brach's Chocolate Covered Peanut Clusters. So, I used these to substitute the chocolate chips. That's not all. I started mixing up the ingredients; butter, sugar, etc.
Just to clarify, we have 6 people in our family and most recipes have to be doubled at least. So, naturally I started making a double batch of cookies. That's a lot of cookies!! And you know, I didn't realize what I was doing until I put the flour in. Oops!
Anyway after figuring that out, my mom and I laughed and added coconut to them on a whim. The cookies turned out pretty good. The peanuts gave it more of a peanut butter cookie taste and the coconut gave it a nice chew. There were so many I rolled them into balls and froze them in qt. size bags. It was fun and I learned from my mistake.

Here's the recipe. Enjoy!
A double batch may not even fit in your mixer.

Peanut Cluster Coconut Cookies
Note: This works best in a mixer.

Cream the following together in a large bowl:

1 1/3 cups of butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 cup dark brown sugar


2 eggs, beaten

Beat until fluffy.

In another bowl, combine:

3 cups of all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

Add dry to wet ingredients and mix just until combined.


2 cups of Brach's Peanut Clusters
1 cup of shredded coconut

Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes depending on whether you like them soft or crispy.

We as a nation need to be praying for those in need. Those affected by tragedies. Those in leadership. Those who are fighting for our freedom and those who protect our cities and put their lives on the line for our safety.
The body of Christ has forgotten it's greatest tools against the enemy; continuous prayer and faith as a child. To believe that with God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!

Gad is Calling You!!

1 Timothy 4:12

New King James Version (NKJV)
12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Over the last 100 years, teenagers have been given a bad name. We're basically expected to play and have fun until we graduate and then magically turn into adults. That sounds pretty absurd to me. But kids all over have accepted this as the 'standard'. It's expected of us to act up, to get in a little trouble, rebel against our parents, whatever. Who cares....right?

I dont' think that is what God wants from us.

God has instructed us to be young adults.  To set an example for the younger and older generations alike. He has called us to a teen revelution. To rebel against the standard and to make a difference in our world. He has called us to be leaders and ministers of the Word.

He has called us, how will we answer? Will we say, "Someone else will do it," or  "God doesn't really want me. I'm not good enough for Him."

Or, will we take responsibility for our actions and fix what we have broken.

Teenagers have a lot more influence than we think we do. We set an example for younger kids. We cause our elders to have a good or bad opinion about us " young whipper-snappers ".

We have the opportunity to impact the world. It could simply be helping that lady with her groceries, helping in the nursery at church during service, or saying, "Hey, can I help you with that?" Anything where we step up to the plate and act like the young men and women God has called us to be. It doesn't matter how limited your resources are or how seldom you get the chance to help someone. Your family always can use a bit of help around the house.

 Remember, once God can trust you with the little things, He will trust you with the big things.

You have the ability. Do everything you do to the glory of God.

Summer's almost over.... YEAH!!!

Summer's almost gone, school's back in session, harvest has started, and Fall's a comin'. That's my favorite time of the year, you know. Okay, Christmas is tied. See, Fall's my favorite season, but Christmas is my favorite holiday season.
I just live the crisp Autumn air, pumpkin patches and hay rides. All the gatherings around the bond fire. Reuniting after the long summer and the crazy first month of school. ~sigh~ 
And pumpkin dump cake. If you don't know what it is, don't panic!! They'll have it heaven. (Alright, I haven't been to heaven so I can't promise anything. But, if you're not sure you'll be there to try if it is, then get in touch with a local pastor. Tell him or her you want to know about Heaven and how to get there.)
I am excited for fall. Around were I live we have the Maple Leaf Parade, Farm Girl Fest, Apple Butter days, Shank's Farm(a big pumpkin patch), and lots of other stuff. It makes me smile to just think about it.
I also have a praise report. GOD SENT RAIN!!! 
We didn't have our rainy season this year so we've been down like 10 inches. Thank God for His faithfulness.
Well, I'll talk to y'all later!

A feeling of agitation and anxiety caused by the presence or imminence of danger.
A feeling of disquiet or apprehension: a fear of looking foolish.

  Now, if you're honest, how many times have you felt afraid? If you're anything like me, then quite often right? And if you're honest, very honest, you might admit that you are still afriad of the dark sometimes. Which, by the way, is not a bad thing at all. You are unprotected and vulnerable in the dark. You have every right to be afraid of it.
  I'll admit I'm scared of sharks and get nervous when I swim in creeks and rivers by myself.  It's because of what's in the water. I'm scared of not knowing what's under or beside me.

  For you it may be dogs, mice, crocodiles, fire, water, storms, crowds, people, spiders, bugs, anything!
 I don't know if God designs us with fear or not. But I do know that we all fear something, and we all can overcome it.

 I've been dealing with fear lately. It's a hard thing to battle. Fear is an emotion and is sometimes a good thing. But, Satan can use it against us. And some of it is demonic. Yes, I do believe that Satan can use his powers against us even when we are saved. One of his favorites is temptation. Satan was able to use his powers against Jesus, for goodness sakes! He can use them on us.

 But as you have heard before, there is nothing to fear but fear itself.

 No, that doesn't mean you should be reckless. It just means you don't need to fear if God is on your side. He is your protector, and He loves you no matter what.

 So next time you are faced with fear, remember that God is on your side.

Just slow down

  Hello Everybody!

  Well, I just got back from youth camp. It was really good, and yet it ws really dificult.
  You see, I'd been running in circles trying to find God and it had really worn me down spirtually. I told one of my youth leaders about it and she told me I just need to sit in God's presence and listen to Him.
  That's not exactly easy for me. I worship very fisicaly and verbily, so for me to be still is difficult. But, I'm trusting God and I'm going to do as the Bible says, "Be still and know I am God". Psalm 46:10

Patience is a Virtue

Hi everybody!
Sorry I haven't been writing too much lately. I've been busy and distracted a lot and just haven't made the time.
Have you ever treated God like a vending machine? You want what you want when you want it but God doesn't quite agree?
I understand.
Things have been pretty hectic lately. All kinds of stuff keeps pressing it's way in to my life, things that require time and thought, plans and decisions. That doesn't make it easy to wait for God to reveal His plans. I want Him to give me all the answers right away.
It all comes back to trusting His judgment and waiting for His signal.
It's hard, but it's worth the waiting.
Besides, in it's time all things are made beautiful.

 Red, White, and Blue;
 Strong and true.
 Singing a song
 All the day long.

Red, White, and Blue;
They fought for you.
All through the night
Hearts blazing bright.

Red, White, and Blue;
Though they withdrew,
Victory would come.
But, at what a sum.

Red, White, and Blue;
Hundreds died for you.
The bled and they died
While the Women folk creid.

Red, White, and Blue;
As you fly true,
I gaze at the sky
And thank those who died.

J is for...

  Jehovah Jireh-
  He will provide.

 He will provide. He will take care of us in the day of adversity. He will love you no matter what you've done. He will provide the peace you long for when you search for it under His wings. He will provide the money for your next set of bills or the bills now. He has provided the atonement for our sins. He has forgotten the sins we have repented of. He has provided us a place to go when we need to cry. He has provided us time , resources, talents, joys, love, faith.

  He has, and will, provide. We don't need to worry, doubt, or question.... we need to just trust in His promises and live our lives as a praise. We are the Body of Christ, and our Father is  I am.

 So, I have just one question...
 If He is SO great, why are you going it alone?

 Trust in Him.
 He WILL provide.

A is for Art of Argument

 To start off , you should be warned that this is a wonderful resource that you will want to read along with you kids... or they may be the one pointing out fallacies to you!! I already am pointing things out to my mom. It is sooo cool!

  Anyway, this is a wonderful course! I have extremely enjoyed it. It's an eye opener. There are so many fallacies (distractions from the real argument) in everyday life. Especially on TV. Now I don't have television so I don't see so many. Politics are also filled with many fallacies like, fear, chronological snob appeal (arguments that make you want to fit into the newest or old fads), ad hominem abusive (abusive language), ad fontem arguments (arguments against the source), and many, many more.

  It is very easy to understand, it doesn't drag you into lengthy descriptions of the Latin words and it doesn't even take that long to do each section. ( I'm reading one Fallacy at a time.) I am very enthusiastic about it. I love learning things like this. It's kind of like reading a mystery book.

  I have noticed some sentences here and there that were poorly constructed, and there are a few misspelled words. But those are the only problems I have had.

  I highly recommend this course to anyone 6th grade and up. Including adults. It really is that interesting and informative. 

  For more details go to . I hope you purchase this product. I don't think you'll regret it!

God Bless!!

Keep on Keepin' on!

  I think sometimes we forget to continue praying for things. Like healing, fulfillment, peace. There are many things we pray for and many things God will give. Now, most likely it won't include a million dollars to buy a sports car, and the latest techno gadgets to prevent your little brother or sister from barging in your room. But, it does include miracles.

  God is amazing. That's a fact. No, it really is.

  He made people rise from the dead in the Bible and, He still does today. He sends angels to protect people, provides for the penniless, blesses the humble, and gives strength to the weak.

  The Bible says to pray without ceasing. To knock at the door and it shall be opened to you, to seek and you shall find, to ask and it will be given to you. God will not break Hid promise of provision to us, but He also won't just give us every little thing we want.

  So take your prayer seriously. God is the controller of the universe. He has the power to destroy the universe in a single snap of His fingers, or create the most minute detail in a microscopic organism. He's not to be taken lightly. Neither is His word.

 Pray with out ceasing. Find what you're looking for.
