“Always There, Always Present”
The other day, I had to take my car into the dealership because it had a recall on it. While I was dropping it off, the man checking me in had to go look in and move my car. When he returned, he asked me about the radio station that was on in my car (it is a local Christian station, playing worship songs). He shared that he had just moved here a few months ago. When he got into my car, he thought he recognized one of the DJ's voices as one of the DJ's he used to listen to back home. He was curious about the radio and asked a few questions. I wasn't familiar with the DJ he was referring to, however, I shared with him two Christian stations that play around town. He was very appreciative.
I just thank the Lord for using my car and the radio station playing music unto Him, to speak to this young man, ministering to him. When this young man returned from moving my car, he had a smile on his face and seemed touched by the music that was playing. I just praise the Lord for all the many ways He speaks to each and every one of us. It is amazing to see all the ways that He works. I am thankful to have been a part and able to witness how this young man was touched by our Beloved. Leaving the dealership, I had a smile on my face and was jumping up and down on the inside praising the Lord for touching this young man. He is so good and works wonders.
“He is a Savior and Deliverer, and He works signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth—He Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions."(Daniel 6:27)
Our Beloved works in wonderful, amazing ways. He speaks to all of us in different ways, He is always there, always present. I just love to see how our Beloved works and all the different ways He chooses to do so. I am so grateful to Him for all He has done in me and all He is doing in me. I thank Him for using my car radio in order to touch the life of someone else. I thank Him for the chance to watch how He brought peace into another's life. Thank You my Beloved for a chance to witness this, it was truly amazing.

“Listening & Obeying”
I just want to praise our sweet HH for this ministry and all it provides for hurting women who need the knowledge He so graciously wants us to obtain. I have struggled with addiction for years... addiction to anything- shopping, alcohol, etc. Through my RJ I have continued to SG regarding this because I know the real void was my need for Him and Him alone. In my heart, I want the Lord first but I do not always implement that into the actions of my life.
I went out with friends one night with the intent of having 1-2 glasses of wine. I realized I can no longer do this because once I have 1 drink, my flesh no longer has the ability to stop. I did not do anything wrong in the eyes of the world, of course, but felt my HH telling me no more! I made a promise to Him the next day I will not drink alcohol of any kind, anymore because I do not have the ability to stop after 1 drink. If He has put this on my heart, I must obey. My family has a history of alcoholism so I want to break this stronghold with me so my children will not suffer.
I want to be sure all of you know this praise report is not to determine whether drinking an alcoholic beverage is right or wrong. This PR is about listening and obeying something He places on our hearts. Some of my friends and family do not understand this but they respect my decision based on faith and support me. All I need is Him, all I want is Him, and all I live for is HIM!!!
“Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left.” Isaiah 30:21
I am listening to Him! His voice will guide me in the BEST way to go!
