Part ONE of TWO: To Emery, Love and Healing Prayers in Jesus's Name, Dear One. You are His Precious Child and Daughter!

A Call for Immediate and Ongoing Prayer for a Young Woman of God, Full of Life!

(&&&Part Two of Two link at very end&&&)

Hi, Dear Friends in Christ!  This urging to write today came from an inspiration from the Holy Spirit, I certainly do believe.  I am writing about my very dear friend Sandy, Sandy's husband, and their daughter Emery.  Emery has a  beloved sister from the same family, including the sister's darling family. From early in school onward through decades later now, Sandy and I have grown even closer as we share our love, trust, and faith in our Savior and LORD Jesus Christ. It has been and continues to be a thrilling path in Life, the forever kind, indeed!  There is nothing in the world that compares in having a relationship with Jesus.  He is the only One Who can save you, no one else ever.  He died and took the place for your sin, was resurrected, and then later ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father to intercede for you and me.

Several months ago I put a posting on the blog asking for prayer for Emery, who is fighting a very difficult intestinal battle for years. (*At the end of today's posting, you can read the initial posting about Emery.)

In Emery's young, beautiful Life, she has seen many doctors, had countless opinions and therapies, and yet even with some improvement, thank the Almighty; however, as of yet, Emery wants complete healing.  I want that for her with every fiber of my being, and her family...well, you can imagine the intensity of their undying love and hope in Christ for complete wellness!  Emery herself- is always hopeful in God!

Both Sandy and I absolutely believe in the healing power of our LORD Almighty!  Each of us has experienced miraculous healing.  For each person, only by the grace and power of Holy God, do any of us have healing of our bodies physically, mentally and emotionally of the mind, spiritually of our spirit and soul...Continued in next paragraph...  Those of us who have chosen Jesus as our Savior, once we have passed on and gone to Heaven to be with our Father, Son, and God's Holy Spirit (Who indwells each of us who are His the moment we ask Jesus into our lives).  After a prayer for Emery**, please read and say from your heart and mind, a*** Salvation Prayer to accept Jesus Christ forever and ever into eternity, where perfection will abide with each of us and together!  No more arguments, sins, hurt feelings, death, devastation of mind and body, evil trick from the evil one, complete wellness, no more tears and much more!  Jesus is making a mansion there for each of us. A mansion where we each live and go out daily basking in the sun that comes from the Light of the World, Jesus!  No need for sun or moon anywhere, for He is there forever and always!

I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life

 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God;[a] believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?[b] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. John 14:1-3 English Standard Version (ESV)

Sandy and I absolutely believe in the healing power of God.  We have experienced it, and we pray for others for same.  For each person, only by the grace and power of Holy God, do any of us have healing, which includes medicine, doctors, prayer warriors, and so forth.  And Yes!  There are definitely times where people have been sick one moment, and completely well, the next!  Every good and perfect thing comes from above! Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.  
James 1:17-21, ESV Every single breath we take is because of God's love for us and by His power!

During a Bible study on the book of Daniel in the Bible, we learned that for healing, God can stop the affliction, He can take us through the affliction to healing, or He can take us to Heaven, which is the final Healing!

It is Truth that God wants us healthy and whole.  In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve had everything in perfection from their Heavenly Father!  God walked in the cool of the day with Eve and Adam in the Garden!  After Christ's triumphant return, we will have it once and for all, unceasing, never to stop, ever again!  (It was lost for humanity because Eve and Adam chose to believe the lies from the Serpent, Satan. God warned them not to eat from the fruit of that one tree, of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, or they would surely die!  They did eat from the forbidden tree, and all of the trouble got worse.  God made them leave the Garden because if they stayed, they would grow old and horrid, but never die within the Tree of Life (forever).  God had His Son Jesus would come to save us!  Forever and Always!)

Those of us who have accepted God's free gift (NOT free for Jesus- He paid the most terrible Price- ALL sin ever was, is, or would be HEAPED upon Him, and the Father had to turn away from Jesus!) of Salvation and LORDship through His Son, Jesus Christ are living on Earth as it is now in God's Kingdom, and we will  have forever Life in Heaven, God's Heavenly Kingdom, when we pass away.  God sent His Son Jesus, fully Man and fully God to make the way for all to be saved---lest not one fall! 

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

However, with the most extreme sadness possible or imaginable, some folks will not accept Jesus' gift of Salvation and LORDship for their lives!  Not everyone makes the choice to live with God forever.

PLEASE PRAY NOW FOR Emery to be healed of this intestinal problem, that she will fully recover and go forward with her Savior and God!  Thank you eternally...

Dear Heavenly Father,
**Please hear our prayer for Emery!  We know you know exactly who she is and who this young woman is in You!  She is a believer, praise You!  Her family believes, praise You!  We are so thankful, truly Dear LORD God.  You knew Emery before the foundations of the world, before she was in her mother Sandy's womb...We ask for complete and total healing of Emery's body and person of this disease, to be released of the burden and worry.  She needs to be freed to act fully on Your behalf for Your Kingdom!  Her family will be so appreciative!  We want Emery to be fully able to love, to enjoy Life, and to help others...to Live for You, Jesus!  You are the Only One Who can heal her.  For Emery's salvation and eternal Life- and her family's- we Praise You, Almighty God!  In Jesus' Name, Amen.

 I was completely healed one night about 11 years ago at Bible study and prayer with fellow women, healed of the migraines that I had for 23 years- every doctor, medicine and combination thereof tried, therapies, lots of prayer.  One day (again, ****link for the blog posting), I was so hopeful at a prayer and Bible study meeting, and 4 Christian women came 'round about me, anointed me with oil on my forehead, and prayed for my migraines to flee and for God to make me well!  They prayed for 10-20 minutes, conversation between them and me, tears and hurts, then the migraines were gone, just like bringing a knife down on a loaf of bread and slicing it...health, pain gone, and it never came back like that again!!!  Part of the key is this when you are prayed for healing: THANK GOD and PRAISE HIM for His loving goodness, His lovingkindness, and mercy, and keep on believing and praising God even if a little pain or symptoms start to return.  Also, sometimes a healing from the LORD comes about "over time"~~~!  Sometimes, we are not healed miraculously, but keep on staying close to Jesus, read the Bible, pray, and fellowship with other true believers~!


Friends, if you are unsure of your salvation in Christ Jesus, or if you have fallen away, never done it before, here is an example Salvation Prayer or Prayer of Salvation.  If you truly want this in your mind and heart, please read it to the LORD.  He will more assuredly LISTEN, HEAR YOU and ACCEPT YOU now for His Kingdom, continue to walk with you all the days of your Life here and then onward into Heaven and to eternity with Him and your other loved ones and friends~!  You will meet people you have never known, also, and ah---the stories and times of Joy you will have with the Savior!!!  Unspeakable JOY and LOVE, no hardship ever again!
You may read prayer to God, or you can tell Him in your own words;
God bless you in your decision for Christ!

PRAYER OF SALVATION

Dear God, I know I'm a sinner.  I'm sorry and ask for Your forgiveness.  I now declare with my mouth, "Jesus is Lord."
I believe in my heart that He died for my sins, and You raised Him from the dead.
 In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Christ-mas in July, The Real Reason for Christmas! Jesus is the LORD and Savior of Each of Us- You and me! Poems and A Salvation Prayer


Image result for image free of Jesus at Christmas


There is a little movie of some age that is so very, very sweet and endearing...I found it on late night movie television.  It is "Christmas in July" staring Dick Powell and Ellen Drew.  Its release date was October 18, 1940.  It is a touching film that you may want to check out at your library or to look for a copy to watch at home.  It is a frolic in fun, not sure I remember if it is the true story of Jesus at Christmas, or not.  I highly recommend it- for the whole family.  Very nice.

Since I saw that film, I have had a soft spot in my heart for the term, "Christmas in July".

Sweet little Dove 

From heaven above:

Come down, from on high,

To prove Yourself King By and by.

Donna February, 2008



Long Memories and Gratitude
Oh, Lord, keep our memories long
With plentiful gratitude
For what you have done.
May we not be as
We were from Egypt
To the Promised Land:
Longing for meat, instead of Your manna
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:6


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Good News of Jesus Christ
Is that He lives today among us,
His believers,
And He reigns o’er the entire world
That none of us should perish.
The Holy Spirit works and hovers
To move us to Christ.
So come, come now
To Lord Jesus
Your Savior.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
God usually speaks
I have found-
In a quiet voice.
You will hear
Him clearly, softly.
It is definitely
There.
Make no mistake.
Avoid the oft
Human response
Of overlooking,
Procrastinating,
Going on.
Have you noticed?
How God seems
To speak quietly
When guiding,
Then sometimes
Comes deeply
Through action
To get our attention?

However He leads and
Speaks to you,
We should definitely
Listen, friends!
He is our Creator.

He made the world and
All that is in it.
Most importantly,
You and me.
Donna 2006

Jesus took what was owed us


And offers



Redemption, salvation, and everlasting happiness,



So that we may be together



Forever, in more glory than our minds can fathom.

Just take it, that is all.



It is so little to ask in return-

Why wouldn’t he want our free will?

He never forces anything on us-

No, not even Himself,

For He is never the oppressor,

Always the liberator.



He knows the marrow of our insides,

The thoughts of our fancy,

The desires of our heart,

The deepest, most covered feelings

That no one else knows,

Sometimes, not even ourselves.



Never fear, for Christ loves you

In a way that is indescribable,

Magnificent,

Almost unreachable- for now,

But nonetheless, ‘tis so true!

Accept, rejoice, and

Live in His likeness!

By Donna McCoy-Harms, Winter-Spring, 2003




However!
God is Holy, 
there is no one above Him, 
All the glory always goes to Him,
and He alone! is sovereign...
Over All- that includes
most certainly,
You and me.
A note: God speaks to us in a myriad of ways!!  He is all-capable.  One of the best pieces of advice ever given me was by a Christian friend, Joni Ames; don't put God in a box.  She was right- He cannot be put in a box!  The Lord spoke to me one day a few years ago in a very crowded and loud foyer at church while I was talking to a married couple, who are friends of mine.  God's Voice and helpful directive in a sentence was unmistakable. 
My point: God speaks to us, not only in quietness, but in so many ways!  He can and does break through to us!!  Ask Him to help you in your belief and your walk. Even if you are an unbeliever as of now, ASK HIM to help you to believe!  
He will!! 
Many true believers, disciples of Christ, find that spending time in The Holy Bible (the Bible) with God in His Word, in prayer and listening, is a great way to learn about our Lord: the Trinity, Who is the One, True God.  We show El Olam, the Everlasting God, that we love Him enough to take some dedicated moments with Him~ alone~ each day- and to hear His Voice for guidance.  
The Lord Almighty always refreshes us, never drains us or makes our time feel like work/toil.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In His Presence


Won’t we be softened

By being in the presence

Of our Lord?


Won’t we be purer

When we sit at His feet?

In His shining countenance,

With loving, outreached arms


For us,


In the fragrance of His Home-

Oh, it will surely be sweeter

Than any earthly fruit could bear

Our clear faces will reflect

Precious Jesus’ smile,

And when we look back at Him,
He will see the love
We were meant to have for Him
In the beginning.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I love the way
Everything just stops
For a little while
At Christmas…
All of the craziness
Ceases,
And we bow down
To worship
Our Lord and King, Jesus.
It’s so soundlessly
Beautiful,
As we all stop
To stare
At the newborn Savior
Of heaven and earth.


God  loves you, Friends, with everything that He has! and
that He has plans for good, no plan for harms.  Accept Him, and your Life will be filled with some real Joy and Excitement; you may feel a tingling in your spirit.  It will not be all high mountain experiences, however, it is the most worthwhile things ever imagine.  Then, one day, you will join Him with all of your loved ones who wanted to be there, with God's blessings, forever in more fun than we can only begin to know on planet Earth, right now.

 Salvation Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, I have gone my own way and made mistakes that would not please You.  I want to be freed and forgiven in Your eyes and heart.  I know you sent Your Only Son, The Savior and LORD to release us.  He took ALL OF THE SIN UPON HIMSELF and was the slain Lamb of God so that we could be freed forever to walk in His ways and to be in Heaven for eternity when my Life as ended here.  I want to learn more. Please help me.
In Jesus' Name, Amen

You can tell God in  your own words from your heart and soul, also.
Check these four prayers to tell God- the one that feels like you are talking to Him.  He most certainly will listen, and most happily and gladly accept you with His Open Arms! Thank you.  You have made the very best decision of your Life.
 I am putting a direct link just here below in the light purple color to several Prayers to say with your heart and mind, to read and really mean to join God the Father, His Son Jesus and your Savior, and the Holy Spirit will come to live with you and guide, comfort, and correct you, preparing for God's Kingdom, Heaven, forever, and ever!  It will be the most secure, beautiful, cozy, and yet wondrous place of safety and love that we ever tried to imagine!
If you are unsure, speak to God, pray, and take it up with a very trusted friend or pastor to discuss.  Much love to you.

On the Verge of Adult Life and Teaching Elementary Children: A Tribute to a Beautiful Young Student & A Prayer of Salvation

Image result for picture of young woman running to Jesus in Heaven



Jesus said:

22 So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. 23 In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly,truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.   

John 16:22-24English Standard Version (ESV)

Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.


2Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.


Ephesians 3:20-21New King James Version (NKJV)

Morgan McCoy went to Heaven earlier than we expected.  Her mother, father, sister and niece, grandparents, and many family and friends are grieving for her.  Morgan was a sophomore at Northwest Missouri College University in Marysville, Missouri, and she was a member of a sorority.  Growing up in Emporia, Kansas, and Liberty, Missouri, Morgan had many friends at school and work in her 19 years of Life.  We take heart in the fact that Morgan had chosen and was pursuing a degree in elementary education with an emphasis in early childhood.  How endearing that is, and it fits with her precious face and sweet self!

The most comforting Truth to hold on is that~~~ 
Morgan Emily McCoy is still very much alive and oh-so-well in Heaven with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! 
Although the pain is tremendously severe to those closest to her, we have the assured Promise from God that Morgan is the best she can ever be with God, now and forevermore. 
She constantly experiences Life at its ultimate with other loved ones who went before her, including experiencing Beauty and Life in God's Kingdom that we can only dream, for now! 
Morgan was assured of Life everlasting because she had committed her faith in Christ Jesus, trusting and obeying Him, so now we are assured because she took that all-important step before she passed on, she is in the LORD Almighty's arms! (***See A Prayer of Salvation below...)


Morgan, In Jesus' Care


She left us way too early!
What a wonder to behold~
How our Morgan came to Heaven,
Greeted by clapping
And cuddling angels,
Of, oh, so very old.

This happy, little girl
With her smile and blue eyes dancing,
She loved others, 
And loved to learn. 
Morgan, a gorgeous shell,
Within it, a lovely pearl.

Morgan arrived
To loving parents,
Brenda and John,
To big sis Taryn,
Grandparents, aunts and uncles,
Cousins, a-plenty, too.

Morgan had, and still does,
Such a heart for niece Zaylah,
Morgan's not forgotten, 
Nor will she ever,
Her special little pal,
She loves her, just because!

Now we have come full circle,
With Christ Jesus' Face
To Morgan's,
And back again to Him,
She has her heart's desires,
And no worries, ever again!


***A Prayer of Salvation***

Dear God, our Father in Heaven,
I know I need You.  I cannot live without staying close to you.  I am tired of trying to do things my way, and I want Your help.  Please forgive me of my sins.  I believe that You sent Your Only Son, Christ Jesus, to live, to preach and to heal, to spread His Message of the Gospel to receive us to Himself.  I believe in Him, and I need His help all the days of my Life.  I understand the Spirit of God will come to me now that I am giving my Life to You, Almighty God!  He will help me each day and help me to do things pleasing to You, LORD.  Thank You for saving me!  In Jesus' Name, Amen.



For Morgan Emily McCoy's Family and Friends

God bless you, in Jesus Christ, Always.
