Just a quick Update, I went to The Prince Charles Hospital yesterday for further Tests and to confirm that I was not in any risk of a Heart Attack at this time but they did advise me that the probability was very strong that I will need an Operation to put things right. The Hospital had been trying to phone me urgently but they only had my old Mobil number, fortunately they also had Ron’s Mobile number and so I was able to contact them.
Although I have been in Acute pain from a recent Tooth Extraction that needed Surgery as the Dentist found it very hard to remove, Thankfully I have had no Heart pain or shortness of breath recently which I very much Thank God for as the Tests showed there could have been.
I will be having the Angiogram next Wednesday and depending on the results an Operation will be secluded either straight away or in the near future, hopefully I will be able to let you know .
Thank you again for your continued Prayers, you are all indeed a Blessing whom I give Thanks to God for, I just wish I could give you all a Big Thank You Hug!.
I don’t really think there is enough words to express my Thankfulness to you my Blogging Friends for your Christian Love shown by your Faithfulness in keeping me in Prayer during my Trials and Suffering but just knowing you do Reassures me that God is very Close and yes without doubt I’m very Blessed with having you as my Christian Brothers and Sisters in the Body of Christ as I am with my other Friends who like you are also very Faithful.
We also give Heartfelt Thanks to our Abba Father for the Wonderful and Amazing Answers to many of our Prayers over the years.
I have had a mild Heart Murmur for many years but was reassured that it was not serious until now and this may be because of the Pain that I have been suffering since the Accidents and also other problems causing Stress or it may have just worsened with Age.
But now once again I have been referred to Prince Charles Hospital by the Cardiologist Specialist who saw me at Caboolture Hospital a few days ago for a Angiogram and if needed an Operation on my Heart but because of Bulk Billing there will be a waiting period although the Specialist has referred me as Urgent and told me if I have any more pain I’m to call an Ambulance straight away, it seems I’m in danger of a Heart Attack but it will help if I rest more during the next few weeks.
Those who have been my Blogging friends for some time may remember over 2 years ago when I had a Heart Attack after having the “Influenza B virus” but all went well and the damage that had been shown in my Blood, ECG and Echograms disappeared which I Thank God for and for those who Faithfully Prayed for me. The Full Story is on the Link below…..
Amazing Answer to Prayer – https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2015/08/22/im-home-our-loving-gods-amazing-answer-to-our-prayers/
What was also Amazing was when our Loving God’s Intervention once again saved my Life, this happened about 25 years ago. I was dying of a Serious Heart Condition and they were going to do Open Heart Surgery, they said I would die without it but also warned me so I could do what was needed, that I could die while I was being Operated on.
I also had Chronic Asthma and was on a Machine Morning and Night and at times was rushed to Hospital with not being able to breath but both disappeared and I no longer needed Surgery. At this time in my Life I was Lost and in great despair but Jesus rescued His Lost Sheep – The Full Story is on the Link below…..
Hopefully I will be able to keep you all up to date and also Visit you in the near future.
Christian Love Always, Anne ( Grannie Annie )
Thank you to those who shared their Helpful and Heartfelt advice with me in regard to Trusting others in our Friendships.
Proverbs 27:17 Iron Sharpeneth Iron so a Man Sharpeneth the Countenance of his friend.(KJV)
Yes is it important to Trust others especially our Christian Brothers and Sisters, if we can’t Trust we may be influenced by our own repressed emotions. Trust is needed to Love fully, without Trust we will never know the deep inner Joy of God’s Love for Him and others.
Do we Trust everyone, No some seek to cause harm but we do Love everyone, so is this a Contradiction, No we Love them through Jesus, in other words we Trust Him fully so we are able to Love them even if they are our enemies and seek to harm us but we do not have to agree with anything they do that is evil.
We also need Truth in friendship not apathy or agreement with the wrong we do, a few of my friends in obedience to God and in Love for Love rebuked me when I fell into Sin but not away, for sure I was not impressed at the time but my Love and respect for them now is very great, they risked my friendship to warn me I was in danger because they Loved me enough to do so. Special friends are always Faithful and Loyal.
God’s Truth corrects error, are we willing to share it and obey it ourselves or do we just want Saccharin sweet platitudes that will eventually leave a bitter after taste.
But no one has to prove they are worthy of our Love just as we didn’t, God Loved us Unconditionally and Sacrificially even when as Sinners we hurt and ignored Him and He sent Jesus knowing that His heart would be broken to see His beloved Son tortured and killed and also to be Separated from Him because of our Sin so we could be Redeemed and set free from the Slavery of Sin.
We have Heartfelt Thanks that Jesus willingly chose to die for us because He Loved us too and He knew our Abba Father could not bear to be Eternally Separated from us. So even though Jesus also did not want to be Separated from His Father which our Sin would do, He still chose His will and not His own.
Sometimes in life we are hurt, sometimes deliberately but also unintentionally by others, at times we may mistake their actions as being personal and meant to harm us even though there not. This is why we need to forgive and keep forgiving or we will become bitter and revengeful.
We also need to have Compassion for others and be there for them when needed. Being a Special friend means putting others first.
Until I had Heart Repentance and Understood what it meant to be Loved fully and for this to happen I also needed to be healed first, I did not Trust that Jesus would not deliberately hurt me as I had often been but I have no doubts now of His constant Love that always seeks our good and does not deliberately afflict us or cause us to suffer, our Abba Father Loves and cherishes us much more than Loving Parents do their Children.
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of men.
James 117 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of Lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Many today propagate error believing that God uses evil to bring good out of it, the Scriptures tell us this is slander nor does He hurt us to mold and shape us, this is not His needed Discipline or Loving Chastisement.
We reap what we sow, others hurt us and living in a fallen world presents Hardships too as does Satan when he puts us to the Test through his Trials and Temptations and by motivating those in his control to afflict us as he did with Jesus, Abraham, Job, Peter, Paul and all God’s Redeemed Children but our Souls are protected and Satan can only go so far before God says Stop! and through it all He gives us the Strength to Endure and keeps us Close to His heart so that in all things we can Rejoice and even when afflicted for the good we do, we give Thanks, not for the suffering but for the rewards it brings.
With us knowing fully that God Loves us and will not deliberately hurt us, it means we Trust Him without doubting and not just in our head but in our Heart too and we don’t doubt that He is Love or real either, we know He is!
Isaiah 43:1-3 Do not be afraid for I have Ransomed you I have called you by Name you are Mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel your Saviour.KJV
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.
Psalm 107: 8 – 9 Oh that men would Praise the Lord for His Goodness and for His Wonderful works to the Children of Men! For He Satisfieth the longing soul and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Psalm 18:1-3 I will Love thee O Lord my Strength. The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress, and my Deliverer, my God, my Strength, in whom I will Trust my Buckler and the Horn of my Salvation and my High Tower. I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be Praised so shall I be saved from mine enemies. (KJV)
Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.
Those who have read my Post (link below) about being hurt by those I thought were my New friends will understand why I’m seeking advice now about True friendship which is something I value greatly.
I do appreciate the advice of my close friends and those who Commented on my Post, some of my friends agree with me but others have said to me over the years that I Trust others too soon and give my all instead of waiting to be sure that they can be Trusted but I have always chosen to do this because when have they done enough to earn my Trust but if they break my Trust and have no Repentance they no longer have it, although because we are to even Love our enemies I don’t give up on them but I don’t accept the wrong they do and say.
I would very much value your advice too, what is the best focus for True friendship? below is also what friendship means to me.
Loving and Caring friends are God’s way of showing His Love to us so we always appreciate the friends that we have and seek to make more.
We can’t see God face to face in the flesh as we see our friends, He is Spirit but yes He had our human flesh His Spirit being in the body of Jesus Christ The Living Word (John1) conceived by the Holy Ghost both of whom have the exact same seed or Nature as our Abba Father in every way, They are One in Spirit although Their roles are different, The Father always being in Authority, They are Love and can be no other way.
1 John 5:7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word and The Holy Ghost and these Three are One.
We are Jesus, Arms, Hands, Feet and voice in this hurting World and yes we help carry each others burdens (Galatians6:2) which means being there for them. We can see His eyes in our friends eyes when they look at us with Love and we here His voice when they say words of Love to us and show they Love us by their Actions too.
We also feel His Compassion (2 Corinthians1:3-5) when our friends Hold us Close and Cry with us (Romans12:15) and we feel His Joy when they Rejoice with us and when they offer their friendship in words and deeds and we feel even more Joy when we give ours too. We feel His Peace when our Christian Family faithfully Pray for us and with us and we give Thanks always that we do see Him face to face in our Hearts, through their Love.
But we feel God’s Righteous anger when others do and say what is evil, unloving and untrue, yes Satan uses his friends to deceive and hurt us but because we Love God and He has chosen us by His foreknowledge of our Heart Repentance which shows our Faith in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, who is the only way to our Abba Father, He works everything for good in our Lives even their evil intentions.
Romans 8:28-30 And we know that all things work together for good to them that Love God to them who are the Called according to His purpose.
Psalm 97:9-11 For Thou, Lord, art High above all the earth Thou art exalted far above all gods. Ye that Love The Lord hate evil, He preserveth the Souls of His Saints, He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the Righteous and gladness for the Upright in Heart.
Psalm 107:16-18 For He hath broken the gates of brass and cut the bars of iron in sunder. Fools because of their Transgression and because of their iniquities are afflicted.
Psalm 94: 23 And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity and shall cut them off in their own wickedness yea, The LORD our God shall cut them off.
Proverbs 10:20-22 The Tongue of the just is as choice silver the heart of the wicked is little worth. The lips of the Righteous feed many but fools die for want of Wisdom. The Blessing of the Lord it maketh rich and He addeth no Sorrow with it.
Yes what Satan means for evil God uses for good, I never doubt His goodness and Love towards us because I believe what He tells us in the Bible and if needed I remind myself of the Scriptures below and others that give me this reassurance when I’m facing Trials and Temptations.
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.
Isaiah 43:1-3 Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you. I have called you by Name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I Am The LORD, your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
The teaching that claims that God deliberately inflicts us to mold and shape us has caused people to walk away from Christianity rejecting God as a Sadist and even out of fear to Suicide. We can’t really Trust someone whom we feel will deliberately hurt us even if it is sugarcoated.
Psalm 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from The Lord which made Heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper, The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil, He shall preserve thy Soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even for evermore.
The Scriptures tell us it is slander to even say Believers do evil to bring good out of it, even more so to claim God does this, He is LOVE! (Romans 3:8)
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says The LORD; thoughts of Peace and not of evil to give you a Future and a Hope.
Thank you Blogging friends and Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.
My Heart was very touched reading Grant’s Story, what a very brave Boy he is and as I shared with Robbie; God does indeed answer Prayers from the Heart and regardless of what tools He uses He is our only Healer, all good things come from Him and being Healed is very good, Robbie Lovingly responded; We have an AMAZING God who hears our every cry. Its very encouraging to see Grants smile. He is a very sweet boy.
Lets join together and Pray for Grant that he will continue to Smile Believing that our Abba Father who is filled with Perfect Love and Compassion will uplift Grant and continue to heal him according to His Good and Perfect Will for him.
We will be Praying Robbie, God Bless you greatly for your Loving and Compassionate heart.
Christian Love Always,
Anne (Grannie Annie)
I would be very Thankful for your Prayer Support again and I also would like to share why I have not been Blogging for over a week, although at first it was not intentional, my Computer was being Serviced but later I decided to take some more time out to Rest and Pray as I was feeling very hurt and not able to concentrate and so was not responding to all my Commitments with Blogging and at Home.
I have been abused for my Faith much more than once even by my Mother and family and although I rejoice in my Unity with Jesus who suffered greatly for us, it does hurt. Jesus was known as a Man of sorrows and He grieved and we will too.
Our Emotions are God given, they are not Sin but what we do about them can be, like holding onto Bitterness and Resentment and seeking Revenge which is like mixing Poison for those who have hurt us but drinking it ourselves, it eats away all the goodness in us like Cancer.
This time I have been hurt by those I accepted as my New friends and Cared about, yes I’m a very responsive, sensitive and an emotional Woman. Although they are not Christians I still valued them as People of Worth as I do with everyone and so I looked for the good in them to encourage. I also remember my Closest friends were once Strangers before they walked into my Heart and I always have this Hope with New friends too.
Yes only God knows their Hearts and the Future and one day we may be United in Christ Jesus and spend Eternity together in Heaven with Him. But I was lied to by one of them which I did not accept as OK the same as I don’t accept all Sin if done by me or by anyone else, God tells us not to accept evil as good, of course we do not judge others by our Agenda but we do by His.
This Woman than tried to justify her Lie to me and to my other New friend and later to others that we knew. What she was trying to hide by lying would have affected not just me but others adversely too, which is why she had lied, she knew her advice had been wrong and would now cause problems and yet she did not warn us. Because I did not accept her Lie, I was than Slandered by both of them and called a Bible Basher and worse.
I had Prayed before for an opportunity the share the Scriptures with them but except for sharing the Candy Cane Story with their Christmas gifts, mostly I have only shared about the Wonderful Love and Compassion that God has shown me even when I was an Atheist, well I was in my thinking but not in my heart or I would still be one today. I was deceived as a young Teenager that I Evolved from an Ape and that our Abba Father in Heaven and Jesus who was my Best Friend and the Bible were just made up but Thankfully Jesus our Shepherd rescued me, a very lost and hurting Sheep.
As a Christian it is also Sin when we have doubts about God’s Truth but we continue to reject Scriptural Help from Him. It is not Sin to have doubts but it is to reject the Confirmation of God’s Inspired Words for our own or others fleshy understanding and than to share it causing confusion and doubts in others, some even take out God’s Words in the Scriptures or add to them seeking to deceive, which they will answer for unless they Repent and put right the wrong they have done.
2Timothy 3: 17 All Scripture is given by Inspiration of God and is Profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness: That the Man (and Woman) of God may be Perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all Good Works. (KJV)
As they say every Cloud has a Silver Lining, I would like to share something Wonderful that happened this week too, which I am still amazed about……
Because of being trapped just before Christmas between my Scooter and a glass doorway after it suddenly accelerated , I now feel server pain whenever I bend down, the Doctor said my Mussels are damaged but they will heal in time.
During this last week I noticed that between the cracks in the Pavement on the Driveway the weeds had grown up again and it looked very untidy and as it’s a Duplex and I’m not the only one who uses it something had to be done. So I Prayed and although it did take time, I had no pain and could bend down and pull out all the weeds even in the garden and along the fence too, yes the pain returned later but Wow when needed I could do the impossible, we don’t just believe in Miracles we depend on them and yes they are happening all the time even if we do not recognize them, Praise be to our God of Love.
Please Pray for me now to Continue to Forgive and to Love those who have hurt me including these Woman and those whom they have gossiped to, one of them also abused me a few days ago, after I had asked if she and her Partner would like to come to Dinner.
Pray that they will all come to their Senses and Repent as I did when faced with God’s Reality, that their eyes will be opened as mine were and yes Pray as you feel lead too. It is my Heart felt Hope they will also be set free from the Sinful bondage they are in but of course only God knows their Hearts and if they are His and this is the same with all of us which I will share about in my Next Post.
What did Jesus do when People were hurting, we remember that He cried with Martha and Mary even knowing that Lazarus would be alive and with them again within a short time, He shared their grief in Love and so renewed their Faith.
Thank you for the Love and Compassion and not just for Ron and myself but for others I have asked you to Pray for recently and over the years, including my furry friends and yes we have seen some amazing answers to these Prayers.
It is True when people are hurting as confirmed below and as you have done, we show Love and Compassion offering our help when needed and wanted, not counting the cost.
Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s Burdens and so Fulfil the Law of Christ.
Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do Rejoice and Weep with them that Weep.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ The Father of Mercies and The God of all Comfort; Who Comforteth us in all our Tribulation that we may be able to Comfort them which are in any trouble by the Comfort wherewith we ourselves are Comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
Thank you again for your Prayers and for your continued Faithfulness to Pray for all those who have need of your Prayer Support which I often read about on your Blogs and yes God Hears and Answers our Heartfelt Prayers according to His Good Will for us and those we Pray for.
Christian Love and God’s Blessings – Anne.
