Being Thankful for the Many Wonders, Gifts, and Goodness of God Toward Us!!







I published this story on The Healing is Always Christ several years ago.  I have been seeing many geese flying, on the ground, and they always make me and my family happy.  We see God's grace, beauty, love for animals and love for our eyes and minds that He created...to behold His Earthly Kingdom.  
If you have read the title story below, please read it again and pass it along to your family and to your friends; I think you will find some Joy!
(More anecdotes about our friends, the geese, as an 
***End Note after this story...)

A Very Special Canadian Goose Story
(or, Two Geese to Get My Attention)

There are many beautiful stories about geese: their loyalty, how they stick together and work together, and how they mate for life.  Probably the most famous one that comes to mind is the one about how they fly in a V, and if one falls behind or gets hurt and is grounded, then another from the V-formation comes to its aid until the hurt one is ready to go again.
Today I have a story for you that came directly from God, through the Holy Spirit, to me.  I watched the story unfold one day, and it has sustained me, showing the great love and power that the Lord gives us daily.
One day last spring I was particularly bedraggled and upset.  The weight of continuing financial burdens had hit me particularly hard for certain reasons, I am sure.  As I pulled up to the bank to go inside, I noticed two Canadian geese.  They are often in pairs and also seen around that area...  One goose was eating hungrily, not in a panicked-fashion, from the grassy patch; the other goose stood on one foot only- an entertainment to my eye- nearby the first goose that was eating.  Another bank customer and I were amused at the two geese as we walked to the door to enter, and I commented that I thought the one eating was probably the female and that the one protecting her was the male.  Inside the bank I transacted my business, came outside, and the pair were still in the same general vicinity but had moved somewhat.  This time the female was still grazing, and the male goose had moved closer toward her, and he was on one foot again.  Same foot? I do not know!  Mentally, I remarked how sweet and wondrous that he would have moved to keep close to her, and yet, he had put one of his feet up again to rest!  My, was he steadfast, and still, he had not eaten yet!


I got into my car, somewhat lighter from the beauty of the picturesque geese, but I was still heavy-laden in my mind with financial burdens.  Suddenly, the thought struck me: I am extremely blessed to have a husband just like that little man-goose!  Yes, my husband is like that bird!  The Lord had shown me in a very glorious way that I should not worry about bills and money because I have been exceedingly blessed with a husband who cares for me, loves me, and protects me.  How much greater a blessing it is than to worry about money!  Even more, I thought, God has given me blessed assurance through my Jesus Christ- eternal life in glory!  He is taking care of me and us now.  What worries could I have?  Through those magnificent geese I could see the love that God has for them, and how much more love, unfathomable, His love for me.
James 1:2-3,12
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

***End Note: This spring 2020, my husband, our grown son, and I have at different times seen our beloved Canadian geese again!  I personally felt that we had not seen as many this year, perhaps the last few years since we moved from our house to our apartment.  Maybe the location, not greatly different, but different enough to make the difference?  Or, was it bad effects of the weather, the climate, the season, or God forbid, environmental causes!? 
Not too long after these misgivings, we heard some geese flying over where we live~ Praise the LORD!  
Other happenings: my husband and I were driving along, and as we slowed down to come to a stop, Royce said, "Look at the grass to our side!"  Two geese were in the grass, one eating and grazing and the other watching over her! Indeed, the male was giving cover to his mate while she feasted : )
Our son sent a picture of two geese he saw, and we have seen other pairings, groups.  I am very, very happy...what a beautiful and magnificent world God has created here on Earth until Heaven and Earth join one another some day, all for His might and glory, Amen.

God is the Potter, and We are His Clay & A Salvation Prayer for You!

Jeremiah 18:2-6; Isaiah 64:8; many more herein


















When the LORD Almighty makes us a promise, it is solid- He is the Rock, our Promise, the Cornerstone, Jehovah Rapha, El Roi, the Maker of the Way, the Light on our Life, and yea, even our Light for the pathway and lamp for our feet
. (Psalm 119:105 105Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. He is the Promise Keeper, our Faith, our Trust, and Hope.  He always delivers what He says He will.  He is the Rock of our Salvation!!!  Forever and forever. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

I was raised by a Christian mother who loved Jesus very, very much.  She still does- she is with alive in Him and with Him now in Heaven for eternity! She has a real body and can run, pray, talke with family and friends; she makes new friends and has unbelievable experiences never known before!  New colors unseen!  She is the most pretty, the most happy and alive, and she is with God!  She gets to see Jesus all of the time.  Dorothy Ella Binder McCoy lives in the glory of God, for always and always.  The daughter of Christian parents, she is one of ten children. I know this as surely as I am telling you right now!

God's Promise to Us- 

John 14:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so, [b]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 where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the ONLY fully holy God, fully Man, Who has ever walked the Earth and then was crucified upon the cross, perfectly innocent as a lamb, the Lamb of God, to expiate, take our sins, and arose to Heaven to rule the world with perfect love and perfect justice.  He is Joyful if you have already accepted His Promise of Life everlasting in Heaven!  If you have not done so yet, or need desperately to recommit to Jesus, please do so by now sincerely saying this prayer to God (you may also tell Him in your own words...). 

God made it so that each of us can know absolutely! where we are going when we die; it says so in the Bible! Believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, that He is the Son of God Who gave His Life for YOU and ME, died, was resurrected, and now sits at the right hand of His Father in Heaven...sincerely tell the LORD so, in a prayer about yourself and Him!  

A Prayer of Salvation
It is for you to tell God if you sincerely, with your heart and mind, want to repent and turn toward the Great I Am and to believe in Jesus Christ: our Lord and Savior~~~ fully God and holy, and also fully Man who was and is without sin, Jesus is the perfect, beautiful, King of kings and LORD of lords, the Almighty.  He is One of the Trinity of God, the One and only One God.

Dearest Father in Heaven, 
I am so thankful that you have made me and have a plan just for me.  You gave Your only begotten Son Jesus the Christ to take my place for the forgiveness of my sins.  How can I thank You enough?  I believe that Jesus is my Lord and my Savior, and I want to go to Heaven when I pass on from this Earth, where I will be with you forever and ever!  It will be something I have never seen or could see anywhere else in the world.  No crying, no worrying, love and laughter and greater things to see with my own eyes!  I turn from my sins; please forgive me, God, and help me to stay on your true and loving path.  
In Jesus' Name, Amen.

You have done it!  You can use this prayer or others, or your own way of telling God if you accept Him; you are His forever and always, in to eternity.  If you have been saved but need to recommit, please do so now, with that prayer, or your own words!  God knows your every thought and feeling, you heart and mind.
New believer or one who recommits to Jesus, find a church where you are authentically welcome, with believers in Christ Jesus- alone- no other false gods or shams of ceremonies; the Bible is believed, preached, and followed.  And NOW you have the Holy Spirit, Who has come to live with you here and now to guide you, direct you, speak to you, and many more- all good things!

God bless you.  I pray for you daily, sister and brother in Christ.  We are now truly called the children of God!

Childhood Memories

My mom always took my sister and me to church.  Our dad came with us at least twice a year at Christmas and Easter- I have the priceless pictures, to me, to show that fact.  We girls- Mom, Sherry and I were wearing our Easter bonnets, darling dresses, gloves (in the fifties) and socks or hose with beautiful patent leather Mary Janes (shoes)- Mom had her black heels, of course.  Dad wore a handsome black suit with white shirt and a tie, and he had on extra polished black wingtips (once again, shoes)!  We had pictures by the family car.  
I was dedicated and accepted Christ (not really sure on the latter) at age 8; however, I know for certain that I took Christ into my heart and mind at age 25, believing in Him and following Him all the days of my Life. Links to my salvation story...
What a difference He has made in my Life!  I feel His Presence, the Holy Spirit ministers and guides me, and I have felt His power grow stronger and stronger.  I physically sense by the power of my upper body when He wants me to worship Him, to have time alone together, and to perhaps hear His voice. Sometime I will explain more about this progression of an intimate, loving God- always very decent, never pushy, and softly being with me.
Why am I telling you these things?  I am giving you an idea of who I am in relation to God- indeed, I am a believer and disciple of Lord Jesus Christ- the One God, Triune: Who is God the Father; God the Son~ Jesus; and God the Holy Spirit.  He is my Creator, and I am- as you are- His created one.

A Real Concern
My concern is the following: why do some people seem to think, even espouse, that they have the right to put themselves above Almighty God?  He is the Potter; we are His clay!  He is our Maker!  He has given us the right to be called children of God, sons and daughters of the Almighty!  And the LORD knew of each of us before the foundation of the world and all of its parts- which includes His plan of salvation in our LORD and Savior, He Who made us!  Christ Jesus. God knew and knows the purposes for each of us.  He knows our every thought, even before we think it- every part and parcel/particle of our being.  He gave us free will, so He does not and will never control us like automatons.  He wants our Love, Honor, Worship, an intimate relationship with Him- all of that and more that we willingly love and give.  He will not force the Truth that Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected- that wholly and holy sacrificial act of Christ at great cost to Him and done in complete Love and a desire that each one can accept Him and be with Him in Heaven some day!

How can any of us truly think that we have anything to do with our coming to this life on Earth? Did I have anything to do, any power or ability in being conceived, in my mother's womb where I grew to maturity to be born, and then was born?  Of course not.  Even my parents did not create my DNA, nor did they breathe life into me. Our Lord God knew me before I was in my mother's womb.  He knew of me before the foundations of the Earth, which He made.  He made everything!  We are completely dependent on God, and that is wonderful and right!

God is the Creator of ALL life in the universe, most including you and me, made in His image, the only creation He designated in His image!


Have you ever wondered~ 
why you are the way you are!?

Well...we are made by God- in His image- that is the most important factor~!!! Holiness of the Triune Three, Each had a part in making you, but Jesus is the One, Who is called our Creator. Do not let the evil one, (the devil, Beelzebub, Satan ...) work his plan of betrayal upon you against Jesus Christ!!! Jesus said, If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father! This Person (One of the Three of the One God) is Jesus, the Lord of lords and the King of kings- no other!!!  Do not believe in anyone else aside from Christ Jesus.

One of the Ten Commandments is: You shall have no others gods before me.

John 14:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

John 14:7-11 New King James Version (NKJV)


The Father Revealed


“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
There are many factors, but they boil down to an essential few.  The most important factors in who you are~ are your heart, your mind, your soul and your spirit.  The LORD gave you each of these.  When or if you have accepted Christ Jesus into your heart and walk with Him is the most important fact.  
Ultimately everything pales to this one choice.  Yes, it is your choice. Praise God! You cannot blame anyone, hail or laud anyone, only you have the Choice for yourself- your eternity and where you will spend it- forever, always. No excuses.  You cannot blame your abundance or your lack of awareness and acceptance of God in Christ Jesus.  When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then it is sealed forever, the Holy Spirit comes to indwell you to help, to give you knowledge and wisdom, his discernment, and strength.  Jesus walks beside you, and yet He stands at the right hand of God the Father on His throne; Jesus is interceding for you constantly.  You need to be Jesus' follower.  There are things we do not know about God, but the Holy Bible is key and so is being in fellowship with a welcoming, Jesus Christ-believing and Bible-believing church.  No fake and weird stuff, no added information or that so-in-so said this, no untruths  Just keep in step with Jesus : )

My Beloved Jesus!~
Godspeed, and Jesus keeps us!

To create the universe-
The land, sea, and air.

Creatures of singular
Ability, shape, color, and size:
A tall giraffe wading through
A Sudanese river;
The beak of penguin
Nuzzling his baby
Under deeply fluffy
Stomach on feet.
                             ~                                
Shimmering horizons
Glowing,
Massive and deep mountains
Oceans of blue,
They-
All coming from You.

A mother’s smile,
Holding babe the first, ecstatic moment.
                                ~                             ~
  Cavernous grandeur
In mighty waterfalls,
Seas,
Wandering whales, dancing
Breaking above the waves
As family.
~
Every fifteen minutes
Dolphins greeting and acknowledging one another,
Just because
They want to.

Herds
Moving as one
Across great expanses
Glorious fields of grain,
Growing hill-steps of beans,
Glistening, snow-packed mountains
With eagles rising way up high.
All,
Spoken by Jesus,
Savior and Lord of Life!
By dust we came,
Your most beloved,

By dust

We go.

In Christ,
We meet You daily and
In the bliss of Heaven

He showed us the beauty of

God's Mysterious Ways: His Wonders to Behold! ISRAEL and All Nations & A Salvation Prayer







is god real experience

Acts 4:12
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved."




Christ Jesus, 
the Messiah 


John 15:13-15
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.


God is profound, majestic, all-powerful and Almighty, ever-present!  His faithfulness is unsurpassed. He is always with you. Not the least of which, the LORD God LOVES you as no one else can.  He knew of you before the beginnings of time; He created you!

The very beginning of the extremely high readership in Israel began with a prayer request I said to the LORD in late 2013.  Only through the unmatched power of God could it happen, which happen it did indeed!

The fact that many people of God's chosen in Israel are being drawn by the Holy Spirit of God to read information pertaining to the Gospel and through other means of His power such as dreams, personal testimony of other people, visions, etc., the Good News of the Savior Jesus Christ, all simultaneously and in unison that are occurring from Israel in reading my Christ-centered blog, The Healing is Always Christ (www.thehealingisalwayschrist.com) demonstrates the work of a Greater Being, the LORD God Almighty because no human being could orchestrate this happening or phenomenon.

Through these graphs and statistics shown here, you can see how God's hand made these regular and incredible specific times where the page views of folks in Israel occurred, all within one day; yes, just one day- a 24 hour time slot, but... always within 2-3 hours, each time- 12 distinct times in Israel now as of
January 11, there were almost a week ago, 1,496 page views in 2019!

Although I have not written about this last occurrence of
January 11, 2019 beside the announcement you have heretofore just read, I encourage you to read the four postings below to show what has happened most currently in August 2018, descending in order, to the very first time I wrote about the extremely high page views in Israel in June of 2015.  The prayer/s started much earlier, then the first one-day occurrence of exceedingly high pageviews from the country of Israel began.

This is God's work. Of course!  I am thrilled and grateful to be of some help. Truly, from that first prayer for more people from South and Central America and Africa- I concluded: "Please, LORD, could we have a few more people from Israel, too?" I prayed this request because what I had from there was just a few at a time and sporadic. I urge you to please read within each blog posting given below...they are in descending order: the most recent first and then three more postings that go back to 2014.  As I said, it was at the end of 2013 when I prayed that initial prayer, then I have continued with many more of thanksgiving, praise and supplication. (Click on each link with each posting picture...you may have to see the little blue link that comes up from each post you click on.)   


God told Abraham, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” And he believed the Lord, and he counted it to him as righteousness.


God loves the apple of His eye and His people of all nations. Romans 10:13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."



By the way, I looked up the number of days between each of these- 11th and the 10th extremely high pageviews from Israel (as you look down at each graph) & the 10th and the 9th time in a row. Between the three times of these extremely high pageviews in Israel, which I account all to the LORD, there were exactly 171 days BETWEEN THE 9TH AND 10TH TIMES & BETWEEN THE 10TH AND 11TH TIMES Also! between the 9th and the 8th and the 8th and 7th times, these days in between were exactly the same.

Israel August 13, 2018, 11th Time God raised pageviews, 1,336 on that day.

***See bottom statistical page from my blog related to the 11th High Pageview time from Israel, for now, which this email began...

These four postings below are written as time progresses with this phenomenon: the regular happening of Israel's extremely high page views- for this blog, The Healing is Always Christ- and in comparison to ALL other countries. The dates of postings and/or the dates of the day the rise happened each time, within a 2-3 hour span of time each and every time, and all with prayer.  This happening has to be of the supernatural power of God' that He desires...I very much encourage you to read this series of postings herein to give you the real taste of what is happening, by God's hand.

May 3, 2017 BE SURE TO SEE THE HAND-DRAWN GRAPH THAT SHOWS THE ACTUAL 1ST through 7TH HIGH READERSHIP TIMES (plus the 8th time is written in the paragraph below the graph, as it came forth as I was finishing this particular posting :)

Your Greatest and Most Important Decision of Your Lifetime- for Here and for Eternity

I sincerely hope that you have already taken the most important step of your Life, bar none- that is, anything or anyone else. It is to accept Christ Jesus as your personal LORD and Savior.  There is no one else in Heaven or Earth Who can watch over you here and now and Who will take you to Heaven, or let you go to the other, Hell, of your own choice.  God gives us free will.  It is not only your choice, but it is your vitally important decision for yourself, 
forever and ever.  
Please let the Holy Spirit soften your heart and mind, even now in this moment, and tell the Almighty God that you believe in His Son Jesus, Whom God the Father gave for your sin and mine- He took, on the cross, the place of us.  He is, was, and always will be the Perfect, Unblemished Lamb of God.  Jesus is fully God and fully Man. No other faith, person, or false god can take His place.  

If you have already accepted Christ Jesus as your Savior, praise His Name!  Keep close and closer to Him each day, and He is close to you!!!  You are His precious, invaluable child forever and ever.
Here is a prayer you can tell God - or in your own words- that you want Him in your Life always- and if you have fallen away, you can recommit to Jesus now:

A Salvation Prayer


Dear Heavenly Father,
I know I have sinned against you, and I am very sorry.  I do not want to be separated from You, nor do I want You away from my Life.  I know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for me, that He was buried and was resurrected on the third day.  He was on Earth again for 40 days, and then He ascended to Heaven to sit at the right hand of His Father where He, Christ, intercedes for us.  He left so that the Holy Spirit of God could come to be with us, those of us who accept You as Savior, Jesus.  Thank You so much!
In Jesus' Name,
Amen! 



God bless you richly in Jesus Christ, His Son!  You have taken the most important step in your Life.  Please seek out a good, Jesus Christ-believing, Bible teaching church where they make you feel truly welcome.  You may already have a close friend or someone you respect who is a church-going Christian.  It is not mandatory to attend, but you will be enriched and be able to mature in the rich soil of Jesus' ordained place, the cornerstone of our faith.

Thank you!
