Think of a recipe you wish to make. You gather all the ingredients, but the main ingredient–say, flour, you don’t have.
Do you continue without it?
Would it be edible or even presentable?
What if you were making bread–Without flour?
What is a Christian believer–Christ follower, without love?
It cannot be.
Love is Key!
Without love, they cannot see Me!
“I am the bread of life.” John 6:48
You must first receive what you believe or you have nothing to give. Many are working on ‘fine-tuning’ their recipe, but haven’t noticed that the key ingredient is missing–Love.
It’s who I AM.
To follow Me, it’s a must or there’s no Bread.
“Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you; for on him has God the Father set his seal.” “I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.” John 6:26-27, 51
“We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. Any one who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” I John 3:13-16
“By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his own Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son as the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. In this is love perfected with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is, so are we in this world.” I John 4:13-17
“And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. All who keep his commandments abide in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit which he has given us.” I John 3:23-24

“Comfort in the Challenge”
A timely book for this troubling season!
Notice the title. This book was created and printed in 2019 before anyone had ever heard of Covid 19. I had a different title planned for the book, but the publisher rejected my title and suggested this title that the Lord had spoken to her. We didn’t know what was coming, but He did! This book wasn’t written to sensationalize a current event. It was spoken by God in provision for a time to come and that time is now! A book filled with God’s Comforting Messages in times of trouble. All proceeds from sales, for the lifetime of this book, go directly to Canaanland Ministries of Autaugaville, Alabama. Thank you, for being a BLESSING in helping these men to restore!

These books are not my words; other than testimony pages, I didn’t create the messages, He did. Listen as He speaks to your heart and takes you on a journey to bring healing and wholeness to your spirit, soul and body. These messages speak His heart, but they are not to replace the Word; they serve to amplify the Word with practical application and insight.
Read the Word.
Scriptures are included with every message. Take the time to look them up and study the Word. It is the Word that Saves, Delivers and Heals. Jesus IS the Word, and He chooses to have relationship with YOU!
♥ Do not hold back from supporting ministries that are preaching the gospel around the world. They serve the Lord and are reaching places you may never see. When you support the preaching of the gospel, you support the Lord’s work and hasten our coming Lord, King Jesus! ♥
