Have you really thought about it?

Jesus will protect you!
    Hello my dear lovely followers and readers, lately the Lord has laid on my heart about these innocent people, that get gossiped about, or get bullied. For example, Ive been seeing so many lifes being lost lately, not just any life a young life, because they have been bullied to where they want to commit suicide and it just breaks my heart into a million pieces seeing things like this happen. Usually these people have absolutely nothing to look up to because there family doesnt have time for them. Writing this blog post right now, my eyes are filling up with tears, because I want to help all of those people to tell them they are loved, to where they dont lead to suicide. The effects bullying has on someone? Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying. Bullying is linked to many negative outcomes including impacts on mental health, substance use, and suicide. It is important to talk to kids to determine whether bullying—or something else—is a concern. < > Visit this website for more information. Can i tell those people that our being bullied or being gossiped about that its not the end of the world, there is hotlines, adults, don't be afraid or scared of what may happen to you, step up if you are seeing these things be done on your school campus or anywhere, I am here to encourage this stop, The Lord is here to help.  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. (Ephesians 4:29) Can I tell you that your unconditionally loved guys? Be a friend not a bully because it absolutely breaks my heart. Im hear to talk if you need anyone or anything.  Don't gossip it is a form of bullying to people, it hurts almost just as bad everyone. "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Revelation 21:4 See your Loved guys. God will always love and adore you, follow the light and you shall be saved.

And this will stop, I dont live for this world, I created my own world when i became a Christian.

        Some Comforting Bible Verses to Me!

 "But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.(Romans 5:8)"

  "See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1st John 3:1)"

  "Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8)"

"Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart(1st peter 1:22)"

"A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret" (Proverbs 11:13)

I leave you with a prayer out of my prayer Devotional!

Lord, sometimes its such a temptation to talk about other people. I like to be "In the Know," but i don't want my listening and sharing to become gossip. Show me the line between related information and gossiping- passing around a rumor that may hurt a friend or family member. Help me be a Person who can keep a secret and not betray a confidence. Help me to be truthworthy in all my conversations, Lord! Amen 

God all I want and need is you, All i want is to be the light to this darkened world you have laid on my heart to be.

Take time to listen to this Song!

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth
Phil 4:13

I appreciate your Love and Comments!
Give me your Prayer requests.

     The Lord has been dealing with me on the meaning friendship. It's been really hard lately because for awhile because i went thru a trial of depression because I felt i was the reason why i had lost so many friends and it was so hard on me. I would continually ask God if I did something wrong, and where did all of my friends go? God told me something that second, the reason why some of them aren't around anymore is because you are better then that. They want to use you, and steal you from the word of God and Me being your heavenly Father is tired of seeing you hurt. Basically I had a couple friends still, but it took me getting so lost in God to realize why all of that happen. He said to me, Sarah get close in Me deeply and I'll bring those friends who uplift you with Faith back into your life. I realized how important the meaning of friendship really is for being a strong christian. Then out of know where i get connected with some of the most precious spiritual girls across the country and believe in uplifting me and prayers and not let me fall into those worldly tactics (Alcohol, Drugs, Sex before Marriage, and so much) I'm so thankful for those Precious people, Amy, Rachel, Erin, Rachel, Katey, Alicia, and so many more!!! A lesson definitely taught to me was to know who you are in Christ Jesus, and not to compromise for the World. It is important to be around friends you want to be like because they will rub off on you. The greatest friend of all is God. "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you, cleanse your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded" (James 4:8)  How to pick a friend? "Do not be deceived, Bad company ruins good morals" (1st Corinthians 15:33)" What's the importance of having a friend?  "A friend loves at all times,  and a brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17:17) .................. "Iron sharpens Iron, and one man sharpens another"(Proverbs 27:17) 
I want to personally thank Katey and Rachel for being such awesome friends to me.
   How to choose A True loyal friend? Pastor Melina told the youth this.
  • Live for God
  • Goes to church
  • Same Morals
  • Good intentions
"Friends that read the bible, pray for you, and speak well of you are a treasure" -Sarah Elizabeth

"All things are possible thru Christ who strengthens you" (Philippians 4:13)

Some of those i shared, are absolutely Precious, and im so blessed to have a best friend called God and all the awesome people he has put into my life.
Prayer for a friend!

Lord, I give you My Dear Friends and thank you for them.
I thank you for everything that they are
And for all their gifts and talents.
I thank you for the many things that they have given to others
And for all the kindness that they have shown me.
Lord, at the beginning of time You breathed Your life into creation
May you breathe Your life into them now
So that each step they take is filled with Your faith
Each thought they think is filled with Your hope
and each moment they live is filled with Your love.
May they fully know Your life
And fully live in Your love
This day and every day

"My friends are so dear and treasure to me"

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth
Leave me your comments, love , and prayer requests on the bottom!!

You are dearly loved.

James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Are you feeling alone?

     I was in the middle of researching some information for my college research paper, and the Lord had me stop, and go here. He laid something heavy on my heart.  Are you feeling dark or alone? I was talking to somebody and this is when the Lord laid it so heavy on my heart. And i mean heavy, this was just a knew experience for me to feel, i almost wanted to start crying but in a different way. Like for the Love of Jesus. Have you ever felt alone, like for instance when your around a group of friends or in this matter So called friends because you walk up to them and they just pretend like your so invisible. Or it could even be like that with your house hold, like this im going to share relates to me! Day by day i go on and I used to feel so alone in my house, but when that trial came on I just agreed with it, and felt like God wanted me to feel this way. To be honest, just recently i realized it was a lie from the pit of hell, that is so ridiculous of me to even think. Now i can be in my house without feeling so dark and alone, because the greater one Jesus Christ lives on the inside of me, and its the time i finally accepted it. Praise the Lord! He is good.
   " God’s love never fails.  
Praise the God of all gods.
    God’s love never fails. 
 Praise the Lord of lords.
    God’s love never fails." ( Psalm 136 1-3)
Those verses right there have to be the most comforting thing to me in those moments, but the amazing thing is i rejoice through Jesus. God's love will never fail and its one of the most encouraging things that gets me going through that moment of feeling so alone. Your saying i don't have anybody to love me, or hug me, or appreciate me? Well have you tried Jesus, He will never fail you. Have you listened to Spiritual music? Have you opened A bible? Have you talked to somebody?  After you do all of that, i promise you will have a different outlook on life. Trust me there was a point before i got so lost in Jesus, that i tried to attempt a couple of things, but after getting so lost, I was picked back up by God, My faith, and i just said why would i even try those things or to loose my life, yeah stupid right? Well after that trial, i talked to my Spiritual parents, which our also my Pastors, i praised through the storm and started praising, praying, reading my bible daily"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path"(Psalm 119:105), and everyone comes up to me, Im actually noticed appreciated and wanted now. But i finally learned that Jesus came out of everyone of these people. It's so absoulutely precious to know Jesus loves Me unconditionally, along with the Church family he placed in my life.
"For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure."(Phillipians 2:13)
And my heart goes out today to all of those innocent young lives killing themselves, tell somebody you love them today, tell somebody their adored, give somebody a hug. Get those hurting into Gods kingdom, we can do it. If your reading this, i want you to know God loves and adores you, as well as me, because me being a christian has been through what it feels like to not be loved. "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another."(John 13:34)
 I want to leave you with a song that was heavy on my heart today when i heard it<3
With Love, Sarah Elizabeth<3

Expressing some of my heart tonight.

     My heart is heavy tonight as i sit here, Im just here with my worship music blasting because thoughts and temptations our trying to overcome me tonight, but me as a Christian i will not allow it, not one bit at all. Worry and thoughts about the past our just lies from the enemy, and the word tells us to "Cast all our anxieties on him for he CARES for us" 1st peter 5:7 The word in here that stands out to me the most every time is cares- isn't it one of the best feelings to feel cared for? It is one of the best feelings for me thats for sure and Jesus died on the cross for our worries and trials, and so much more.
Also 1st Peter 5:8 is one of the verses that lays strong on my heart tonight because it is so easy to let thoughts trials and temptations in but we our strong and can say no no you stinking lying devil and we learn how to only let the good thoughts come into our hearts. "Keep your mind clear and be alert. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" (1st peter 5:8)  So be ready and alert, dont let him in the Doors, Tonight i sat here and thought about how i failed God a little by letting my thoughts come to play and they shouldn't have but everybody has their moments and I thank God every second for forgiveness. 

"May the words from my mouth and the thoughts from my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my defender" Psalm 19:14

Everything that you say against the Lord, remember that it is a sin. Im still working on that myself, remember we all make mistakes and nobody is perfect, but the Lord always will forgive us.

"The Lord is good and decent.That is why he teaches sinners the way they should live" Psalm 25:8

Sitting here at the moment thinking about one of the biggest things i had to find the courage to forgive, it was so hard for me but i gained the courage to forgive this man. Getting sexually touched by a man at a wedding in front of people, that was one of the worst images to go through in my life. He held onto me and wouldn't let go of me, and it was just one of those situations that i was scared and didn't know what to do. I felt so useless and so ashamed and so lost for about a month. It took me so long, to relieze it was not my fault, i saw that mans face everywhere i went, even when i looked at my pastor i saw him and it was one of the saddest things to overcome for me, just recently i am now overcoming the look of that mans eyes and face. But besides that I am healed, and restored and closer then ever with God, It was a process, but meditating and praising God thru the storm really pays off

I would like to leave you with some of the things i do when im scared or feeling alone.
  • I talk to God
  • I get down on my knees and pray
  • I meditate and read the word (bible)
  • And i Praise God
Never give up!
"And whenever you stand praying,forgive if you have anything against anyone,so that your Father who is also in heaven may forgive you of your trespasses" Mark 11:25

And Here I leave you with a couple songs that got me Smiling:)


Leave me your prayer requests in a comment, or my email.

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth
"All things are possible, thru Christ who strengthens you" Phil 4:13

“Seek the LORD while he may be found;call upon him while he is near;let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts;let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Power of Prayer!

      Im just sitting here thinking about the intimacy i get with praying. I wanted to share something with all of you guys about the power of prayer with me lately. Okay well my name is Sarah, and im the only one who attends church as a commitment lately and believes in the power of prayer in my family. Well normally i just pray out loud but i was so ashamed for so long, but just recently the Lord has dealt with me about my self esteem. Where ever you are? Get down on your knees and pray for those unanswered prayers that can not be answered just by a normal prayer, there is an intimacy with God i receive! It has been a life changing feeling for me and the restoring of relationships in my family. "Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with a song of praise" (Psalm 95:2)  That is one of my absolute favorite verses at this time of night, just the feeling i get when i pray and praise our Lord and Savior. "What am i to do? I will pray with my spirit, but i will pray with my mind also, I will sing praise with my spirit, but i will also sing praise with my mind also (1st corinthians 14:15)" Pray every way you can play, pray together, pray as one, God is listening, but remember our prayers get answered on Gods timing. I feel absolutely beutiful when im in prayer, i love to pray for others, I'm actually going to start a prayer journal and write down all the people who need or want pray from me. Do you take time out of your day to say a prayer and thank God for all the blessings you have received daily? Thank God that your alive! Thank God for forgiving our sins. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrightousness (1st John 1:9)"  Isn't that verse just absolutely beautiful, be bold and ask the Lord to cleanse your sins , we all sin, but God is faithful enough to forgive us. 
"My Pastor Marcus calls me his prayer warrior always, and is going to have me share in front of my church about the feeling i get when I am praying down on one knee"
Picture from Google Images!

"At the name of Jesus every knee should bow"

 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved...That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth..” [Acts 4:12, Phill. 2:10]
I just loved this, so i had to share it!

 "The Lord directed me to leave you with these quotes"
"Don't pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees" -Corrie ten Boom
"We have to pray with our eyes on God not on difficulties" -Oswald chambers. 
P.s. I hope you guys enjoyed my first blog post, finally the Lord directed me to do this, as well as a few Instagram friends told me that i should create a Blog so here it is.
Leave me your prayer requests.
With love, Sarah Elizabeth<3
