Hello everyone! Isn’t it great to get together with other believers like this and fellowship and share the Word together? That’s what I like to think I’m doing as I write these posts every week. Part of the dialogue we share together is comparing notes with what we’ve learned since the last time we were together. That’s especially true of those who have a great passion for Bible prophecy -the study of what is happening in the world and how it lines up with world events. We compare notes and see what each other thinks. You agree up to now, correct? 🙂
I just say that to encourage you NOT TO SCOFF at those who are watching and share that they suspect that a certain time period is a high-watch time. None of the Bible prophecy teachers I follow dogmatically say that a certain day is definitely the day of the Rapture. They’ve said that it’s strongly a high-watch period based on Biblical statements compared with things in the world. That should tell us that they are serious watchers. Are you watching as closely as they’ve been? I doubt if any of us are.
Now, of course if someone DOES say that Jesus absolutely IS coming back for His church on a certain date, do not listen to them. PRAY FOR THEM. Listen carefully to what they say. If they seem puffed up and arrogant about it, I don’t listen to them nor will I share their messages here on my blog. If they seem to be humble and seriously seeking and not dogmatically insisting on an exact date (not just a high -watch time), I respect them for the effort they’re putting in to watch and keep us informed. They should be prayed for especially because the world and many many Christians are scoffing at them and slandering them with others.
DON’T YOU BE ONE OF THEM! Pray for them! Love them, love ON them. Show them the love of Jesus. They truly need it. Be wise and not arrogant. Don’t be all puffed up yourself! I’ve had a handful of Facebook friends laughing and taunting these teachers and sharing memes full of images and words that make fun. When I see that I think of the pharisees. Don’t be one! If you have been, please reconsider your actions and repent and be loving from now onward.
Be an ambassador for Jesus. Represent Him well because the world is watching! The Bible tells us that they will know we are Christians by their love for one another. Are they seeing love from you towards these watchers? Think about it!
Please listen to the first part of Pastor J.D. about the September 23rd rapture watching. Thank you for your kindness, pastor J.D. So many believers are being so cruel to those who honestly thought it would happen. Be kind to each other, everyone!
I’m going to make a valiant attempt at starting a new blog post series on Fridays. Freebie Fridays. I’ll try to post free printables every Friday be it planner printables or other. I hope to see some comments from you if you find these helpful! The more comments, the more I’ll know you are using these and that it’s worth my time and effort to put them up on my blog. If after a time I don’t receive feedback, I’ll know to go another route 🙂
This first Freebie Friday post is timely for those who have favorite TV shows that begin again or start anew beginning next week. They are stickers for planners to remind you that your favorite show is on on a given day. Just stick them on your planner on the day it’s on to remind you to watch it (or if you’re like me, to remember to set your DVR to record it and once done, to remind me that it’s waiting for me to watch). These are 1 1/2 inches wide. So they will fit in the weekly squares for the Mambi Happy Planner (classic size) and the Erin Condren Life Planner.
Now there are some obvious tv shows I have excluded that that are ones as a devoted Christian I will not watch, so don’t feel comfortable sharing with others either. (Think Lucifer and Supernatural, etc.)
If you have a favorite that isn’t listed here that you think are fine, let me know and I’ll try to put a sheet together for you. There are several new shows that are starting soon that I can’t vet yet, so rememember to use your best judgment using them. Here we go!

Star Trek Discovery, Big Bang Theory, and The Brave:
When contemplating what theme to use for this month, it just seemed like a given that freedom from fear would be the plan. October being the month that most of the world celebrates Halloween and trying to scare their friends and others. The whole trick or treat aspect of the holiday seems to bring more and more terror every year. When I was a child, we dressed as clowns, princesses, hobos…anything but the blood-dripping masks that seems so popular these days.
You get the idea. I think the Lord would have us counteract that evil with the truth from His Word, that His plan for us is absolutely not fear and a Christian should remind the world of that fact. It’s said that the phrase, “Do not fear”, is in the Bible 365 times (once per day for those of the Western calendar). Let us try to memorize some of these passages as we write them throughout the month the world seems to celebrate fear!

Nobody but the Father knows exactly when this will happen, but the Bible assures us that it WILL happen.
Did perhaps millions of people vanish from the earth and you are left wondering what has happened?
If you are reading this after this has happened, this post is for you, my friend! I’m sharing some videos and information with you in this post to help you understand what has befallen our world. Please pay close attention!
This week’s Mindful Monday devotional is very near and dear to my heart. The devotional is given by Anne Graham Lotz. You may know her best as the daughter of Billy Graham. As many of my readers and those who know me are aware, the Rapture and Bible prophecy as a whole is a calling of mine, and has been since a few years before I gave my heart to Christ when I was a senior in high school. Both of my grandfathers were pastors so I grew up in my mom’s dad’s church in my early years. The closest I became aware of what the end times were back then was from singing the song, “I’ll Fly Away.” As a child, I just thought the song was about the time of our deaths.
Through a whole series of events I now realize were orchestrated by my Father, God, I was educated about the Rapture and subsequent tribulation period to be endured by those who would be Left Behind. I definitely did not want to be left behind to
Hi everyone! I pray you all are well and blessed this week.
There is so much happening in our world! Just when one disaster winds down, it seems like another has been following close behind it. I really feel called to continue doing these weekly updates to inform you and I both as we watch for the Lord’s return. Also, in hopes of reaching those fence-sitters who need to fall over to the side of Christ in time! There are many of you out there possibly reading this who do not know if you are ready to meet the Lord should today be the day. I encourage you, if you do not know, visit this web site.
So I’m sitting here working on this week’s prophecy update and this tab opens in my browser that I didn’t open. I have no idea how it came to be open in front of me, but in case this is from the Lord, I’m sharing it here before our usual updates. It’s interesting so far:
Is anyone else getting the Autumn decorating itch? 🙂 I spent some time this week creating a whole new set of Autumn printable planner stickers and the Silhouette cut files to match them. Today I am sharing with you a freebie from that set. You can check out the rest of the set in my Etsy shop here. This is formatted to fit the classic-size Happy Planner planner, but you can always use it in other planners and bullet journals.
Print these out on full-size sticker paper. I use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type.
If you’d like this printable, click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing. If you use this kit, I would LOVE to see how you use it! Please comment below so I can see 🙂
This may be a little long, and I ask you to please bear with me 🙂 You may recall that I mentioned last week that I had spent about 9 years backslidden. Of course if I had it to do over again, I would never have, but as always; hindsight is 20/20, right? 🙂
I was on fire for the Lord though young in body and even younger in my faith than I would have thought at the time. I attended several fellowships or Bible studies and had something going on in that regard every night but Mondays. Little by little it started dwindling as groups stopped meeting for one reason or another. At the point where I started becoming discouraged, I was attending a Foursquare Gospel church regularly where I was driving the church van picking up intercity youth, and also attending the one larger fellowship that I had left called Koinonia.
Koinonia was an alternative to the bar scene, an offshoot of one called Nightlife. Nightlife met on Friday nights and for one reason or another, it stopped meeting after several years of being on fire. Koinonia was on Saturday nights and I had many dear friends there, but was one of the few singles that was left who hadn’t met or married a love interest. It started getting to where myself and a few others started feeling like third wheels whenever we would meet with the others. Yet, I was dealing with it…
I hope you are all well and those in the south east portion of the US are staying dry and safe in light of the approaching Hurricane Irma! You are all in my prayers.
I promised I would film a tutorial showing my amateur/beginner’s method of Bible art journaling. I’ll post the video from my YouTube channel below and below the video share a few notes and give you the links to the items I used.
God’s blessings upon you all!
I would love it if you would subscribe and give this video a thumbs up <3
I just got a good video editing program I’m learning to edit my videos with. In addition to that, YouTube has made some changes and there are a few places I wish I could have made annotations on! They have stopped the annotations feature, so I’ll
