Get Service..

All to often we go through our day as if the world should revolve around us. We have bad days.. And we forget to remember that people around us have them too. That what they are dealing with could even be far worse then what your up against. The statement “You can’t judge a book by its cover” is true here. They may be Smiling on the outside yet crying on the inside. Learn patience and pass it on. A smile or a small random act of kindness could just turn around someone’s day ❤

“Here Comes The Boom” sermon from Pastor Randy Balling at The Well Church, Modesto Ca

Today the Message at Church was a powerful one.. I am going to try to share Pastor Randy’s message with you as best as I can..

“Here Comes The Boom”
Overcoming Relationship Hurt
“Hope for Hurting Hearts” – part 1

Belief is more important than WILLPOWER.  When we think of willpower especially this time of year we think of our New Year Resolution that we probably just made a commitment to.. Research has shown that willpower is really “What level of belief do you have to succeed in what you have embarked on?” Without belief in success, there is no willpower.

When you are going through life and everything is plugging along and you believe with all your heart that life is just as it should be then the “BOOM” happens!! That unexpected hurt, disappointment, hits you like a ton of bricks. A relationship you had formed that you put all your energy and trust betrays you.. Not just once but maybe even twice.. why does this happen, Because as Christians we forgive, but we also at times give our Trust back to fast.. I know I have situations where I have done just this.. I realize it and actually tell myself, Shame on them for them placing the BOOM on me in the beginning, but isn’t it Shame on US for allowing them to have our trust back so fast. that  we have actuallu allowed it to happen again.. Have you ever found yourself in that same type of situation.. WE all have.. Is revenge ever a viable option.. NO,  and that is something I have also believed.. I believe that God will be the servant to avenge.. In my own words I have always said, Those who live a selfish, non serving life, that hurt those around them, that “GOD WILL BRING THEM TO THEIR KNEES..” And he will in Time when the lesson is right to be served upon .. Your Belief Beyond the BOOM Needs to Be “God will make something GOOD from this Hurt.. and let your healing process begin.. Something Good will come of it.. It might take time, It might not even be noticeable when it happens, but it will happen, as long as you have Belief to get through it.. and you will realize as you look back that it did..

Someone “Will SIN” against you.. You will be saddened, angry and will have to be around this person and others that know you and how you were hurt.. The BELIEF beyond the boom is to maintain your INTEGRITY.. You are better than the person placing the BOOM.. Don’t let their behaviors and actions that look so pristine on the outside, but you have been dealt the pain, make you become a sort of them by not holding to your Integral Beliefs.. MAINTAIN YOUR INTEGRITY and hold on to your FAITH..

People that Hurt You can Actually Change.. Although you have forgiven them you might not trust them.. But then you might come to a realization that THEY HAVE CHANGED.. It can Happen.. GOD works bigger miracles then that every day.. But be safe in waiting for the “EVIDENCE OF CHANGE” before you give your TRUST back so easily.. This behavior will protect your heart.. And when the evidence is there, Offer YOUR TRUST.. whole heartedly in the Love Of God..

SO in closing please if you take nothing else remember “You might be tempted with REVENGE but your Belief Beyond the BOOM Should be ” I’m going to leave room for God’s wrath ”

So Many Need This one prayer.. Prayer for a New Job…

As I go through my day multi-tasking to get things done.. Although I am self-employed and not really where I thought I would be by this time in my life I do feel humbled that I have the opportunities that I have.. I come in contact with people every day that need more in their lives.. For me I have not been the one to wait on a job, I create my “job” but not everyone has that will or desire to do just that.. And that is OK , I do hate to hear and see fear in their voice and as a part of their expression but all I can do is Pray..  Below are a collection of prayers that I have come a crossed and I hope having them in one spot here will bless someone with just a little more strength to better their day ❤

PRAYER FOR A NEW JOB ~

IN THE DAY OF PROSPERITY BE JOYFUL, BUT IN THE DAY OF ADVERSITY CONSIDER: SURELY GOD HAS APPOINTED THE ONE AS WELL AS THE OTHER, SO THAT MAN CAN FIND OUT NOTHING THAT WILL COME AFTER HIM.

Ecclesiastes 7:14

Our most gracious and loving Father,You have most lovingly and graciously said that You have loved us with and everlasting love. We acknowledge, Lord, that Your love for us is deeper that the ocean and bigger than the biggest need in our heart. Father, all my longings lie open before You and my sighing is not hidden from You. I commit myself as well as the need for a new job into Your most precious and loving hands.Lord God, fulfill the desire of my heart and bless the work of my hands. The Bible says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” I am completely trusting in Your merit and Your faithfulness this hour. I am certain that You can make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. You can open a way where there seems to be no way. O Lord, as I go through the selection procedures, let Your mighty uplifted hand rest upon me and grant me Your supernatural grace and mercies in the eyes of all the concerned officials. Please perfect everything that concerns me.Father, my ways are not Your ways, neither are my thoughts Your thoughts. Your ways and Your thoughts are higher than the heavens above. Let Your perfect will be done in this matter. Put Your words into my mouth for the interviews and grant me Your wisdom and knowledge. Let Your mighty presence go before me.I render thanks and praises to You alone, Master, because I believe that You have already performed a miracle in my life.Amen.

Pray that they will see opportunity when it approaches.. When it is right for them.. Praying for a sense of normal to come back to this economy before they all forget what normal felt like…

Prayer for Rising Above Fear ~

Dear Lord, please ease our hearts in this world of uncertainty,
As we balance that which we desire with our true need,

And know that as you move us from fear to love,
We will be enriched with the treasures of spirit and peace. Amen

From the deep reaches of my heart and soul,
To the highest love in heaven,
I pray for a healing of my financial situation.

I reach a hand to the abundance of the universe,
And pray that I learn to transform my fear into possibility.
Let me open to all the good that exists in this world.

I lift my head up to the sun
And pray that I am inspired to turn darkness into light.
Let me raise myself up beyond my problems.

I look toward the future and what-could-be
And pray that I can believe in myself and my abilities.
Let me know in my heart that I have great strength.

But I pray that I do not let it own me.
Let me do what I can to bring peace to my financial situation,
And trust that this too will pass.

Blessing to Crisis-Proof Your Relationship ~

May this relationship be blessed.

In times of financial strife,
it is easy to blame your partner
for what is wrong in your life.
Always look deeper for the truth.

May this relationship survive tests.
When things go wrong, It is a chance to show
That you can weather even the harshest storms–together.
Always see your love as bigger than your problems.

May this relationship bring you strength.
When money is tight, you may feel weakened.
Instead, come closer together to solve your problems.
Always focus on the creating the life you want to share.

May this relationship be your safe harbor
There are plenty of things in the world to pull you apart.
Stay strong, two against the world.
Lean into each other and hold on.
Let your relationship be your foundation and your support.

Amen.

– Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

May their days be filled with fun and play.

May there be food, clothing, shelter, and comfort.
And may their souls be nurtured no matter the state of our world.
Please bless my children in all ways.

Wholeness Blessing – We Are Not Broken ~

We walk in troubled times,
But let us not be troubled souls.

We stand in financial challenge,

We have suffered loss, pain, and indignities.
But we have survived, and we will survive.

We have been hurt and we may be broke,
But we are not broken.

Amen.

Dear God, I Need Cash ~

For this I pray:

Not asking for a million bucks
Or money showing up in trucks
Just need some cash to pay my bills
And financial flow to cure my ills
Not seeking huge amounts
Just enough to make it count
To take care of a basic human need
And take care of those mouths to feed
I know that times are rough
But I want to stand tough
I just need some cash to keep on going
So please God, keep the money flowing.

Amen.

– Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

Enough cash to provide proper nutrition and healthy food,
And more than enough for health care and wellness.
Please help us to provide for our families.
Beyond the material needs, please uplift our souls.
Inspire our creativity and resourcefulness.
Guide us in improving our lives.
Help us restore balance to our economy.
Point us toward a brighter tomorrow.
Please help us to hold on to faith.
And let us find peace. Amen.

Prayer for Strength of Faith During Difficult Times ~

Father, this world sometimes bewilders me and is beyond my understanding. I see poverty and disease, storms and earthquakes, war and killing. Many hearts are bound by ego and fear. Please strengthen my faith in your higher purpose and open my mind to the truth that everything is unfolding according to your divine plan. Let compassion and love for my brothers and sisters flow from me and may we all be uplifted by your glory. AMEN.
