Treasure within You

I realized I needed to update this post a bit, I had been in a hurry and realized it was geared more towards just women. So here is the update enjoy:

This study really stuck out to me and I wanted to share it. I hope that it will speak to you too.

Treasure within You

II Corinthians 4:7

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”

We all have treasure in us. We all have been given this treasure, and we can be inspired by this treasure to do what God has called us to do.

Treasure within You

Something inside of you has been locked. God wants to unlock it. He knows what gifts and abilities and dreams He has put in you. He knows how to touch them and how to bring them out.

When you get beyond your low self-esteem and stop comparing yourself to other people, and you begin to accept what God has given you, then you are in a position for Him to bring to birth all He has created you, ignored by others, perhaps even ridiculed by some, but God calls those traits His treasure. And He wants to bring it forth!

Everyone alive is a treasure chest. Each one holds something God intends for them to use in fulfilling His purpose for their life. And in the process, will bring Him glory. Find out what treasure God has hidden in you, because the devil is going to fight you for it. He knows the treasure is there and he wants it for his purposes. He wants it bad.

So many people today are fighting the devil and don’t even know why. It’s because they haven’t discovered the treasure that lies within them. The devil knows it’s there. God knows it’s there. So the fight is on.

Your treasure is powerful in God’s service, and the devil knows it. What he doesn’t know is that your treasure is also a weapon you can use to defeat him in your life. The devil will do anything he can to sabotage your self-esteem. He doesn’t want you developing your assets because he doesn’t want you to give birth to what God has put within you. Being loosed means that your treasure has been released. It means that the gift that has been bound within you has been issued an emancipation proclamation. It means that you are free to blossom and bring forth fruit! When the treasure within you is loosed, you are at liberty to deliver God’s purpose in your life.

Now giving birth may require intense effort on your part. You may have to push like a woman in labor. You may have to fill your cheeks with air and push with all your might. So get ready, and soon you’ll hold a treasure in your arms.



So I have a friend that is going through a lot right now and I found some info on comfort. I am posting this because what I found I thought was really good.

I Corinthians 1:3-7 ~

3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4) who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5) For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 6) Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7) And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also will you partake of the consolation.

The rest of this comes from a study Bible that I got recently:

God of All Comfort ~

One of the many names for the Lord is Comforter. What a perfect description! His presence can make you comfortable in the most uncomfortable situations. He can unravel the dark shroud of grief and release the beautiful heart held captive within. He can pull you out of every situation you thought you’d be stuck in forever. He has the ability to bring peace to every trauma. In fact, this God of all comfort even catches your tears and collects your pain. He is with you when it hurts and He will always be there for you.

You will live and love and experience loss before your life is over. Losing some things will help you appreciate what you still have. It is the bitter taste of poverty that makes prosperity so sweet. How can you celebrate victory if you have never faced defeat?

You will live each day not knowing what the next one will bring. You will not always be able to see what tomorrow holds, but it is a great comfort to know that your God holds all your tomorrows. Tomorrow is not in the hands of your box, your children, your spouse, or anyone else. It is not yours to manipulate or to dominate. Tomorrow is in the hands of the Lord. Whatever you do, take time to get to know Him, because you will need Him. Speak to the God of all comfort, for His comfort is sure for every tomorrow.

He will be there when husbands, friends, children, jobs, and money are all gone. He is there for all your dark places. Now take courage and understand that “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). Your night may seem long, but when it is over, there will always be morning.

No matter how dark the night, you’ve always lived to see the light. Understand that it is God’s grace that has protected you and provided for you. Times change and seasons change, but not God. He is always the same. He is the same God who brought you through your past and promises you your future. The God of all comfort has come. Be comforted now and you will arise.


I Think I Found It

Ok well looking through a couple sites I really like this. I have edited the font color a bit let me know what you think and for only searching for two hours I think I did pretty good


Changing Things Up

So I like change, anyone who knows me knows that I can't keep things the same for long.
Right now I am having fun playing around with designs for my blog.

I like to keep people guessing so over the next day or so if you happen to stop by and see different backgrounds on my blog just know that I am having fun and seeing what I want to use.

Have a great day and maybe I will decide soon on a new look, however not likely.


Healing vs. Miracles

So I was reading one day in my bible and reading about the gifts of the spirit in I Cor 12 about the different gifts. Now I know some of the gifts that God has given to me, music with flute and voice, and I have another gift that I have not completely stirred up yet.

When looking at the gift of healing I always thought that healing and miracles were lumped into one category. I am finding out that is not the case. Miracles and Healing are slightly different.

Healing means:
1. curing or curative; prescribed or helping to heal.
2. growing sound; getting well; mending.
3. the act or process of regaining health: a new drug to accelerate healing.

Miracle means:
  1. An event that appears inexplicable by the laws of nature and so is held to be supernatural in origin or an act of God: "Miracles are spontaneous, they cannot be summoned, but come of themselves" (Katherine Anne Porter).
  2. One that excites admiring awe.
  3. A miracle play.

So some food for thought that caught my attention in my studies.


Another month gone by already

So I am sitting here and looking at my blog. I look at the last post and I realize wow another month has gone by already and I don't have a recent posting.

I have not been quite able to start my schooling yet hopefully soon. I am so excited for that and really am hoping I do well and can start with in the next couple of months.

I am going to be doing some more studies and posting as well as I have been doing a lot of praying lately. There are things going on in my life that I just want to make sure I am making the right decisions. I know that my decisions affect the people around me and I want to make sure that I am careful as I don't want someone to stumble because I didn't take the time to look at the big picture.

Anyways give me a little longer and I will be able to have some new whisperings coming soon.


Going Forward

I have been thinking a lot about my blog this month. I know I haven't posted that much because I am trying to get a few things settle in my own mind. When I think about my mind and what I am thinking and what I want to do, and where I want to take this blog.

I have a desire to help people. I have a desire to touch people's lives. I don't like to offend people or hurt people. I want people to be touched by what they read here. So when I am posting I am always praying hard that the right words are being said to help someone through their day.

I know that I am not perfect and I know that other people are not perfect. I try not think about all the what ifs that can happen but lately it has been harder and harder for me to deal with those and put them aside.

I want to blog more and yet I hold back. I am not sure why I hold back. Then I ask myself is it fear, or feeling that I might fail at it. There are so many good blogs out there with insights that sometimes I think, what can I offer. However I have come to the realization that no one else is me. Then I realize this is all about I and not about what the desire behind the motivation, really is the desire to help others, with seeing a part of growing hopefully more in God and having God be the center and take it from there.

So going forward through this journey that I am living trying to post here and try to help people. I hope that God will be in what I am saying so that it is not about me and more about Him.

I hope that all of you have Blessed Day



So I have been praying about this information for a couple weeks. I really am excited about it. I am looking to go into Message Therapy and so far with the encouragement I have gotten from the few people around me has been great. Now I am even more excited.

I really like the school that I looked at as they have some pretty good benefits.
I am looking at Anthem College here in Beaverton.

I am just praying that I am able to get the financial aid to help out with the expense upfront. I will have to see what happens when things get a bit closer but looks like hopefully I can get things rolling in a few weeks to 1.5mos. I am excited. :)


What do I want to do

One thing that I have been thinking about is what I really want to do.
I am at a job that in a way is satisfying as I do feel that I help people.
I however have been feeling like I want something else to be more involved in helping people. I like some phone work but I know that I like to be around people too.

I have been told by some of my family that I should go into a certain field. They felt that I would be good in that line of work. So after years of up and down weighing the options and really wanting to get into something I would enjoy and know that I would be helping people. I decided to look into.

I went on Wednesday to an appointment with a school that was close by and really liked what the information I got from it. Right now I am putting it in God's hands due to the fact that I would have to get help through financial aid. I am hoping that things will work out and the program that I would take is going to be looks like 11.5mos for it to finish.

I am excited for the changes because I think it would put me in a better place.

Getting to Things

You know those things that you need to do but don't want to and put off and put off.
This week was the week I couldn't put it off anymore. I had two things that I needed to get done but didn't want to.

Through a situation I couldn't put it off anymore. So Tuesday night I tackled one of them and ten Wednesday morning I tackled the other. It felt really good to get those done so that they weren't nagging on me anymore. Plus it made my world seem so much nicer because I didn't have to worry about them anymore.

Sometimes I think to myself why did I wait so long to get to those when it made me feel so much better when it was done.


Friday - 2/13/09

Well I haven't posted in a little while. So I thought today was just as good as any to make a post.

I am not a superstitious person. I don't believe that kind of thing. I believe that there is reason for what happens when it happens. However I do have to say that I know there are those out there that do see things in a different way.

I know there has been a lot of emphasis with the number 13 and a lot of emphasis with making Friday the 13th a day that is not considered a good day. I try to look beyond what Hollywood has made this day into and I try to look at the good in it. There is a lot of good that can come on a day when most people would cringe because of the way it has been portrayed. For instance today where I live it was sunny. Of course I didn't think to get my camera out and take a picture to prove but since it tends to rain where I live at the end of winter I enjoyed having some sun out. It has not turned out so far to be a bad day.

So going forward from this point. Instead of seeing the Bad in Friday the 13th - I am going to chose to see the good.

I hope that those that read this post would chose to do the same as well.

On that note - Have a Happy Friday the 13th or what is left of it.



Today, I was thinking about my previous study on gentleness and thinking about what I had learned. I realized as I was thinking about it I had intermixed gentleness and calm. Being gentle and being calm are two different things. They are similar and I desire to have both in my life in moderation.

I decided to look up both in the dictionary.

Gentleness means:
kindly; amiable; not severe, rough, or violent; moderate; gradual; characteristic of good birth; honorable; respectable; easily handled or managed; tractable; soft or low; polite; refined; noble; chivalrous.

Calm means:
without rough motion; still or nearly still; without rough motion; still or nearly still; free from excitement or passion; tranquil; freedom from motion or disturbance; stillness; freedom from agitation, excitement, or passion; tranquility; serenity;

They are similar looking at it I realized not only do I desire to be gentle but I also desire to be calm in certain situations. I went to my Bible to see what I could find on calm. Most of the references were of when Jesus calmed the sea when the disciples and him were on the boat; the disciples woke him to calm the sea.

I did find one other one which is in Proverbs.

Proverbs: 17:27
It says: (New King James Version)

"He who has knowledge spares his words. And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit."

In my quest to be more gentle and more calm I find that I am needing to gain knowledge and understanding. With knowledge comes the ability to find different words to use in different situations so that I can find different words to use that don't sound harsh and in gaining understanding it will help me in my quest to be more calm, with calm - to be more gentle.
