CHANGE IS NECESSARY

I write everyday! Much of my writing is on Facebook and that is not a bad thing; I post with a purpose. In addition I have my blog ‘NETTIEOLOGY‘ and I review books at BEYOND THE BOOKSTORE. Yes I am psuedo-editing my novel manuscript (I hate editing!) from NaNoWriMo 2016 and I have the idea for the next novel which will be ready for NaNoWriMo 2017; while writing 2 ebooks to be published via Smashwords. But all of this will continue while I add more changes.  (Did I mention my YouTube channel?)

In order to improve what I do I must make adjustments from time to time, a.k.a. change, and so I am exploring the possibility of going back to school. Perhaps this is a bit premature (nothing is paid for yet) but I have enrolled in Liberty University to obtain an Associates in Religion. I have completed the registration process and have unofficially been accepted.

The courses I will be taking I have completed via a “Free” program online and I have obtained a Certificate of Completion. Taking classes from an accredited school will solidify my “street creds” so to speak, saying I graduated from Liberty University gives me bonus points (LOL). In reality God has already  called and positioned  me as a Teacher and a Scribe with prophetic gifts .  I am doing now what I will be doing when I get my degree, I suspect the added paperwork will open doors that I have yet to see.

I still have to come up with the money.

But this post is all about change and the question is: How will being a student change my life? It will not.

The change is in the obedience.  A week ago I had no desire to go back to school, two months ago I had no desire to go back to Yahovah Eloheem Ministries; a year ago I would have told you I was not going to be babysitting a one year old; yet, here I am today caring for a toddler, back at the church I was a part of 10 years ago and enrolled in a college. Every step I have taken since October of 2016 has been ordered by the Lord and I finally learned how to yield to His will and go.

A person who is not willing to learn is not willing to grow. 

I have learned a lot from other churches, mostly what God does not want us to do. Now it is time to learn how to be a leader in the house of God without compromising His truths. My transition has not been easy and not always enjoyable only because I resisted change. But to improve life we must all change and this is what I am doing at the age of 57.  —written by Marsha L F Randolph

This is where I began and now I begin again.

 

THURSDAY MAY 4, 2017 – NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

Today is NATIONAL PRAYER DAY and many Christians will pray out of tradition, obligation or because everyone else is doing it. Praying is a serious action and should not be taken lightly. It does not have to take hours but it should be done with the belief that God hears what is being said.

Pray for the peace of this nation, pray for law and order to be restored, pray for the healing of hearts minds and souls and pray that you will be an asset to the Kingdom of God and not a hindrance. 

Not everyone knows how to pray.

When I began writing the book it was called “DON’T PRAY FOR ME” because there are so many people out there who don’t know how to pray.  Many people can pray long and loud but cannot pray effective. If you don’t know what to pray DON’T PRAY!

I believe my prayers are effective when I pray according to 1) the word of God and 2) the promptings of the Holy Spirit. I believe some people, not all, pray but think the bank, the doctors, their friends, their family, their enemies, and others can stop God from answering a prayer.

People do not believe everything in the Bible, I do not want a person who doubts God’s word, or thinks it is out dated, to pray for me. HOWEVER, the Spirit of God said people would not purchase my book if I called it: Don’t Pray For Me.

I wrote an eBook called BEFORE YOU PRAY FOR ME, it is not about what to pray or how to pray but understanding the elements of prayer. Things like appreciating God as the ultimate FATHER. I expound upon the principles of salvation and other basic things that were mentioned in church but not elaborated upon. 

I also wrote a companion PRAYER GUIDE– it is a list of things that we should pray for. The guide is not meant to be used daily  nor should you try to cover everything on the list in one setting. What is important is that you pray.
