Unspoken Prayer Request

Father,

I come to you to night for my dear friend A. I don’t know what is going on in her life right now that needs coverage in prayer but you do. I ask that you cover her in your peace and love as she deals with whatever is going on. I ask that whatever your will is be done in this situation. I bind and cast the devil out of the situation and claim victory and restoration for the situation. I know she will follow your will and your direction even if it’s not what she wants. I ask that you give her the strength and courage that she needs in this situation. I pray that there is at least one other person that can pray specifics with her and help her in this situation. Lord it’s hard to know what to say when I don’t know anymore than an unspoken request. I stand by my friend tonight and pray that whatever your will is that it be done. I will support her in any way that I can.

In Jesus Name,

Amen!!!

Sermon Series Coming Up!

Over the next few weeks I will be posting some of my favorite sermons from both my church and some of my friends churches. I will be adding one each week sometime between Monday & Thursday in the morning. I hope to have notes for them on Friday afternoons. I will be choosing things to quote and also making note of any scriptures that are referenced. Feel free to add anything you caught in the comments section of the sermon notes post! I look forward to seeing what you catch or find interesting!

These sermons will be linked via my sound cloud account since I can’t upload them directly to the blog at this time. I feel like it is more than time to find a way to spread God’s word throughout the world!

Denver Trip

So we went to Denver this week to see two different doctors. On the way up there we ran into ice on the mountain pass but otherwise had a pretty uneventful drive except a rock messed up my new windshield. Thank God for $0 deductible on my insurance for a quick and free repair. We were even blessed with a Christian company that repaired it!!! They came to us and fixed it at the hotel that same night!

Anyway Gavin played with his kindle the whole way up there and never even complained. We checked into the hotel got changed out of our traveling clothes and headed for Wal-Mart to get the candy for the kids at the Children’s Hospital. We were going to hand it out ourselves but they wouldn’t allow it so we took it to the volunteers so they could hand it out for us. Gavin gave the nice lady the bag and chose one little bag for himself.

Once we were done giving the candy to the volunteers office we headed for his dermatology appointment on a different floor. They looked at the rash on his stomach and the pictures I had of previous episodes. They decided it was eczema and said it was likely triggered by an allergy. They gave him another new ointment called Synalar to try and we are working on using that now instead of the other steroid creams we were using. They also upped his night time allergy medicine called Atarax.

After we were done with the visit we went back to the hotel. We had planned to go to a little Mexican place right by the hotel but I wasn’t feeling well so we just ordered pizza, cheese bread and boneless wings from Domino’s. We stayed in all night and I fell asleep before 9 pm.

The next morning we went to the breakfast provided by the hotel. We ate and then went back to our room to get ready for the next appointment. We packed everything up and loaded up the car. We headed to the doctor fora 2 hour long appointment. They did a 21 point scratch test and we found out he is allergic to Cats, Cat Pelt, Dogs, Weed Pollen and Sesame (Tahini). After his appointment we got in the car and headed home!

Standing In The Gap

So recently my son has been having some health issues and sleep problems have followed. I have finally had enough of the enemy attacking my baby! It is time for me to stand in the gap for him!!! He needs training in how to reach out to the Almighty God and it is my job as his mother to teach him how to do that. I will be teaching him some verses so that he is no longer afraid. In the mean time I will be praying and playing praise music in his room everyday!

As far as his health, He has had a rash for over 6 weeks now and we are working with both doctors and praying for his health. They are not sure but suspect some kind of allergy … Most likely peanuts.

The spiritual attack is more severe. The last couple days he has woken up between 12-1 am screaming and bolting out of his room shaking like crazy. I can feel the enemy trying to invade his room and I have been rebuking him in Jesus name every time I go into his room. The Pastors are supposed to come anoint his room and pray with us.

Do you have any verses you have taught your children for when they are scared? Would you share them or any other tips you have with me in the comments?

Crescent Roll Taco Bake

We had this a few nights ago and it was so yummy … Just thought I would share it here!!!

Pillsbury's Crescent Roll Taco Bake Recipe

Ingredients: 

12 crescent rolls (1.5 Tubes)

1 LB ground beef ( or ground turkey)

1 packet taco seasoning

1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese or to your liking

Shredded lettuce

1 or 2 diced tomatoes depending on size

1/2 small can sliced olives if desired

Sour cream (optional)

Sliced avocado (optional)

Directions:

1. On a round baking sheet (I use one with holes in it for grease draining) lay out the two tubes of crescent pastry, thick sides in. If left overs use to make center a bit thicker

2. Brown beef/turkey (Drain and rinse fats) and add taco seasoning

3. Lay out 2 crescents without separating them then surround the center with the wide ends in the center forming a multi-point star.

4. Lay beef in a circle inside the laid out crescent rolls.

5. Add plenty of cheese to the top of meat mixture

6. Pull points of crescent roll and tuck in over meat and cheese.

7. Follow cook time on the pack of crescent rolls, and once it’s done, you’re good to go ( I baked mine for 20 minutes)

8. Add cheese,lettuce,tomato,black olives,sour cream or whatever else you desire in the middle and enjoy.
