Feeling like a nobody!

The Lord laid this what I am going to write on this post as I was skimming through my facebook news-feed and I came across a post that said "I feel like a Nobody" and the Lord put this topic so heavy on my heart. So here it goes. Have you felt unwanted or just not loved by anybody or anything? Well its completely possible to feel like that because myself as a believer has felt like that many times, even after I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior a little over 3 years ago. So yes its possible to feel like that. Should we? No.  You may be thinking to yourself I am the only saved believer in my family or work area, and everyone bashes on our faith. But I want to let you know every believer has to go through that once in their faith walk to learn how to become stronger. You should not allow satan to use enemies to bring your faith down. If you feel like a nobody, whether its being unwanted or unappreciated I want to tell you that is a lie straight from the pit of hell. God loves everyone unconditionally whether you are a believer or an unbeliever. But your faith as a believer and your walk with God is important. Stay faithful to the book of life and if you dont know what that is its the BIBLE. You may be hurting because you lost a loved one, but I want you to know God is the Father of the Fatherless, and Jesus can over fill us with comfort if you make the decision to let him. So make the choice to live for HIM, he heals the broken, lost, hurt if you put your faith into action. His arms hold the universe, let him Hold you.
" The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble"//Psalms 9:9
So if your hurting tonight praise through the storm its only temporary.

"...Weeping may tarry for the night, but Joy comes in the morning"// Psalm 30:5

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation the old has passed away the new has come"//2nd Corinthians 5:17

 I just want you to know every mess can become a message. Rejoice, Rejoice because your going to heaven and not hell. Halleluah!! That is so great to know and praise about. God uses us believers as a light to the broken. So it is important not to let the enemy steal your Joy.

"All things are possible through Christ who strengthens us "// Philippians 4:13

"Clap your hands all people! Shout to God with all songs of Joy"// Psalm 47:1

"May the God of hope fill you with all Joy, and peace in believing, so that by the the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope" //Romans 15:13

Those are some uplifting songs to my soul right now, so very!!

Oh how lovely God is to us.

Leave me your prayer requests, Id love to pray with you.

With love, Sarah Elizabeth<3

What God has placed on my heart to share.

       Lord I want to say thankyou for all you have done in my life recently, the people you have blessed me with. My spiritual family has changed my world around and its so precious to me. When you connected to a family through the spirit of God cherish it. I enjoy the moments I get to talk about God with them, the moments I recieve the biggest comforting hugs, thats so dear and precious to me.

People have been bashing me about my faith and how I share so many verses in my social networking sites, but thats how the Lord uses me to be an affect on other peoples lifes. God has kind of started a form of ministry up for me in some sort of way if thats how you want to look at it. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.(1st John 2:15)" Thankyou God for showing me the difference from the people who live for this evil world, and the people who show the Love of God through them. I am just so in awe right now of the Love my God has been showing me the last couple of days.  Do not Judge others, because that is a trait not of God. "Do not judge, or you too will be judged.(Matthew 7:1). Living for God is one of the greatest possible things I could possibly decided to do. Yes I have went through so many trials, but I finally feel loved unconditionally for once.
"Father of orphans, champion of widows,is God in his holy house. God makes homes for the homeless,leads prisoners to freedom, but leaves rebels to rot in hell." That is the message version of Psalm 68:5". Isn't that verse so precious, it brings me so very much comfort to every ordinary day in life. Tonight I just have overall so much Joy over my heart, because the peace of God lives and me and takes complete control of my life. "They overcame him (satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.." Revelation 12:11 That verse is absolutely so very good. Doesn't it bring complete Joy knowing that we have overcome that peewee satan. How do you renew your mind with Gods word? You feed on his word, Meditate on it, And act on it making it a part of your everyday life. That is something that you as a Christian should live on. Dont play pretend, its either your a doer of the Word or you just arent a faithful christian. Sorry if that sounded a little heart but thats completely true.You realize that the bible is not only a book to be read, but it contains Gods Words that are to be lived; they are instructions to you for your everyday life. It is God speaking to you. It is what you govern your life by. You are a doer of what the Word says. Halleluah, God is just so precious to my life lately. 
I wanted to personally say thankyou to Rachel, Erin, and Katey for being my spiritual sisters from across the country, and to Erin who is here in Cali. You guys are true gems in my life, I personally thank God everyday for you 3 girls, true blessings. And as to everyone else I love you very much, God blessed me with amazing people and I am just in awe of what and who the Lord has blessed me with.
To my bestfriends I adore you completely.
 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:9)  My ultimate favorite bible verse.

I want all of you to know, that I run after God and more of him, and I dont pay attention to the evil satan brings in this world.  I have been studying Revelations, and it has deffinetely taught me so much. I suggest that everyone goes deep into that chapter.. (:

Psalms and Proverbs are very comforting if you are looking for some uplifting encouragement.

Dont give up now, you can overcome every fear that you have if you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

Lastily, I would like to leave you with a song that just brings me overall complete Joy in every trial and just every situation.

With a heavy heart I will rejoice.

"They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them"
  --Psalm 112:7, NLT

     Lord I here this morning with a heavy heart along with many others I am sure as we look and see the tragic event yesterday in Connecticut. My heart has been weeping all yesterday and today. But this Post isn't about me, I want to show comfort to others. As God is doing right now through all of these tragic losses in a blink of an eye. I was talking to a dear friend this morning, and she completely gave me comfort and I absolutely loved it. As I was hurting so are others, but I just want to tell you that you are all unconditionally loved always and forever. God comforts us in times of troubles. Tell your child nephew, niece , cousin, any kid that you love them with your whole heart and hold them a little closer because you do not know what can happen in a blink of an eye like the tragic event yesterday. All I can leave you with today In this blog post is words of Love because I have no idea what to say really.  Find comfort from the Word of God. How does God restore your soul? Through the Word of God. As you feed and act on the Word of God, your soul is restored.

All I can leave you with is some verses out of the bible that I found absolutely comforting!!

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

"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. "(Isaiah 41:10)

"The Lord will give strength to his people; The Lord will bless his people with Peace" (Psalm 29:11)

"He heals the broken hearted And binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; he calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. The Lord lifts up the humble." (Psalm 137:3-6)

 "Even and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud and he shall hear my voice" (Psalm 55:17)

"My heart is confident in you, O God; my heart is confident. No wonder I can sing your praises!"(Psalm 57:7, NLT)

 Well thats all I have on my heart for the blog post. Much Love to all of you, and you are in my deep prayers.

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth!

     Moments with my savior are just absolutely precious to me. Sitting here today with God on my side. Well I want to share a little about last night. So last night I went to a church service to see an awesome man of God minister and it was an hour away but it was so worth it. The Lord had been laying it on my heart that it was something that I needed to do, but the funny thing is my car was not drivable since last Thursday so it was all God that my car had got out of the shop just in time for last night. Obeying the Lord and getting to the service was precious, because man did God show up on me. My Joy was completely restored, and I got drunk off the spirit of the Lord. Hahahahahha smiling and laughing all night long I was. Don't think about the distractions the enemy tries to throw at us because it will only kill, steal, and destroy our peace and faith. "Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.(Philippians 4:4 NKJV)" To feel complete joy is absolutely precious. Do you love God? Do you Love Jesus? Are you happy? Well Jesus brings us our joy and happiness and makes me so happy to know I'm saved completely. Tell yourself that satans wrong, I'm right. You outta be gratitude your not going to hell
 Dont Cry, REJOICE!  Don't gripe be happy, and praise God. 
Here are some verses I want to share with you if you are feeling confused. 
  • I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will guide you with my eye. (Psalms 32:8)
  • For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil , to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and go and pray to me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek me and find me, when you search for me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)     
"One measure of our love for Christ is our sensitivity to the needs of others."

Blessed is the person who does not follow the advice of wicked people, take the path of sinners, or join the company of mockers" Psalms 1:1

Never give up on you, be a light to those hurting, bring them to know Jesus. Don't be scared or sad when you get judged or bashed on because of your faith.  Because the Lord should be you one and only ultimate Judge 

"All things are possible through Christ who strengthens us" (Phillipians 4:13)   
I want to leave you with some sweet songs and images.

                     With Love, Sarah Elizabeth

"Don't allow it"

     Hey my sweet followers! I would like to tell you a little about the last couple of days. Well first off I want to tell you as a christian we all have our moments and days. I would like to tell you not to let the enemy steal your peace. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27) I would be an absolute wreck right now if it was not for the comfort of Jesus and prayers from my friends I would be a crying mess. The last couple days the enemy has tried to send me distractions. My brother was recently shot my heart dropped when I heard that news, and he is now fighting for his life. The circumstance of why it happened just filled my heart with so much worry "When I am afraid, I put my TRUST in you" (Psalm 56:3). That verse is so short but so sweet and comforting to me right now. I put my trust in God because I could sense I was letting worry come into the door of my heart. So then I told myself I should be happy my brother is alive and healing. When you let worry in distractions from the enemy will keep coming, because the next day my car breaks down, and I find out my nephew has broken his leg. I'm thankful the angels were protecting me when my car almost blew up. So for now it's undrivable until it gets fixed. But I'm thankful I'm alive because that could have been a bad situation. I want to tell you guys God sends his angels out to protect all of us, in every situation. He loves all of you unconditionally including I. "The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the spirit is life and peace" (Romans 8:6)
When our focus is on other people instead of God we do not get our freedom.  A reminder is to not hold onto thoughts that are not of God.
"Turn your burdens over to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will never let the righteous person stumble" (Psalm 55:22)

"All day long we praise our God. We give thank to you forever" (Psalm 44:8)

"Let go of your of your concerns! Then you will know that I am God. I rule the nations. I rule the earth. (Psalm 46:10)

Comforting verses to me right now. I hope you guys stay strong and know that God is real.
And to know the power of prayer is real is absolutely awesome. Dont give up, you prayer warriors.


I want to leave you guys with a couple songs that have been my strength lately.

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth.

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

"Be strong and courageous, nor discouraged, or dismayed for the Lord you God is with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9)

I'm so thankful for your presence this morning Jesus!!!!

Moments with the Lord this week

     So on Monday night I believe it was I was having pain like no other. So the Lord instructed me to get down on my knees and ask for my healing the correct way so I did. I cried this verse out to Jesus "O Lord my God, I cried out to you for help and you healed me" (Psalms 30:2) Woke up this morning feeling completely better, like my symptoms I've been having completely left. People tell me that its impossible when they are an unbeliever but It is not impossible because my Jesus is the biggest and most ultimate healer there could possibly be. Don't tell me My GOD is fake because he is completely real, take time to get to know him. Another verse that I meditate on when I am looking for a healing is "Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed. Rescue me, and I will be rescued, You are the one I praise. (Jeremiah 17:14)  Jesus is the ultimate healer never forget that. Praise through the storm and he will bring you Joy in the morning.

Just a couple things I got from the bible and devotionals so far this week. Here you go.

"The fire has no power upon my body" If you are walking through a fiery test, you cannot afford to surround yourself with companions who are speaking words of doubt every time you speak words of faith.

Do you think it is important to spend time with God during the week? Well for me personally that's where i found the most comfort in my days, and week. Feeling that precious sweet feeling God places you in during that time, whether it be Prayer, Praise, Reading the Word. Its all absolutely precious and never ending to me. " Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."(Psalms 119:105) The verse says it all and its something I hold tightly onto, my bible! I find a cure to every problem in there. Give it a try if you don't already.

There was a moment this week where a friend had told me that they were having thoughts of death on their life. I prayed so much that night, I weeped, and just thanked God for his amazing victory over her life and my life. And minutes later, Guess what happen, the Lord showed up on her and everyone of the thoughts she was having vanished.  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.(John 10:10)  I wont let any part of that stupid satan into my surrounding believers of Christ, I pray my heart out for them, because God listens to our prayers. "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."(Matthew 18:20)  That's a powerful thing being connected together in prayer.

Thankful for the people I have in my life. Received some sweet words this week from dear friends.
"The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire in scorched places, and give strength to your bones, and you will be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters do not fall" (Isaiah 58:11) That verse as been heavy in my heart so I thought I would share it.

Look straight ahead at Jesus and keep your mouth shut towards of doubt, unbelief and evil speaking.

God bless you guys, you are loved, never forget that.
Any prayer requests, comment below?

With Love, Sarah Elizabeth

Would like to leave you with a song of worship I love
