“Faith is putting all your eggs in God's basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch.”
Ramona C. Carroll



Hope... yes... in my promises, but remember that faith is the substance of those things hoped for. Believe that you have received your request and let that permeate your being and that I always give to those who ask. You have received, now let that seed grow until the day comes for the answer to be made manifest, but remember you already have the answer. The battle is already won. You have not to strive to receive your request. "If you are willing Lord you are able"" I am thou made whole"


Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith is not trying to get healing, prosperity, victory. Faith is knowing that these things are already ours. Hope is for the future. Faith is now. There are some things we have to hope for...the things that have not happened yet. Jesus returning is one of them. But there are certain things that have already been given to us, that the only way the enemy can stop us enjoying is by our lack of understanding of what we now have in Christ. When Jesus died on the cross it was to win for us all the things pertaining to life in abundance. When we understand that we are not fighting to get victory but that it is already ours through the blood of Jesus, we will be standing in the right place, against the lies of the enemy.. We are not the sick trying to get healed we are the healed that the enemy is trying to get sick. It takes a bit of a turnaround in our thinking. But God's word is true, no matter what the circumstances look like. The battle is in our mind. When we stand on the truth and enforce the victory by the word of our mouth, our circumstances will change, and come in line with God's word.

Romans 10: 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. ..

The word salvation is the word Soso. It means whole in every sense of the word, protected, healed, delivered. Our Christian walk is coming into all that Christ won for us, by believing, and speaking God's promises.

Those who overcome will inherit all things. We overcome by our faith. By the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony.













"All is well."

With silent surrender to the dawn
the melody-enriched lark song
finds a heart.

A heart to listen with intensity of feeling in a rare and splendid moment of adjulating wonderment, where eye seeks eye and handclasp is desired above all else.

When gentle mists of love embrace the secret garden of the heart where the tenderest emotions abide and have their being,and the golden awakening of friendship is established forever.

Here is a place where no fear treads the boards,where trust in it's magnitude is reclaimed and a new utterance breaks through the darkness, echoing the thoughts of freedom , that

"all is well".
