1 Thessalonians 4 : 13 -14
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Have you dealt with the loss of a loved one? Have you moved forward? Do you have hope? How do you know God is bringing you hope to your life if you’ve lost a loved one or not?
Losing Shane was such a shock. The pain was too much to bare. God has given me a peace that surpasses all understanding. I hurt everyday. I have joy every day. I miss him so much. I am now after God, seeking Him so fiercely the way Shane taught me.
God I come to You in the name of Jesus. I thank You God for the days you have given me with Shane. I ask You to be with me. I seek to know You the way Shane did.God come to me. Hear my prayers, my cries, God guide me. Show my next step. You are the lantern to our feet and guide our path. Father, please use me in ways I can’t even imagine for Your Glory. God I ask for understanding, wisdom, and discernment in the name of Jesus. God I want to know Your Power in my life the way you used Shane. Holy Spirit filled. God slay me in the Spirit. I love You Jesus. I love you Father God. ALL Glory, Honor, Praise, Worship goes to You Jesus, goes to You God. Thank You, thank You!! AMEN.
Psalm 50:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
50 The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
So the journal entry this day was to write about what the most difficult challenges are going on right now in your life.
- Shane passing
- needing to move
- What now in life
- Financial prosperity
- Finding alone time to be with God and in His Word
What are some of your greatest blessings?
- My kids
- having a decent job
- The teachings of Shane
- The people God placed in my life
- Gaining understanding and wisdom
Then I was to pray asking for peace and thankful for my blessings. I am a FIRM believer in physically WRITING things down (again another Shane teaching). I have written everything daily including prayers.
Dear Heavenly Father I come to You in the Holy and Righteous name of Jesus Christ. I ask God, that You show me how my blessings from You can bring hope and light and life back into my life. Please, Father, bring me Grace to face the world at Your side. Father, I ask You to draw close to me as I draw closer to You Lord. I ask in Your son’s name Jesus, that You give me understanding, wisdom,discernment, and knowledge of Your POWER. Like You did with Shane. God, You called him friend, like You did Moses, and used his life to show Your Glory, Mercy, Love, and Righteousness. I seek this same relationship with You Jesus. I seek this same closeness with You God. Thank You Lord for Your many and great blessings in my life. I pray these things in the name of Jesus. AMEN!
Can’t say things are bad for God is with me. It took Shane passing for things that he taught me to really hit home. Correct doctrine is the biggest key (Titus 1:9, 2 Tim 2:15, John 6:51) but also understanding.(James 1:5, Proverbs 2:6) God has given me the peace and joy by Holy Spirit (Gal 5:22-23) to handle this time in my life. I am reminded once again how God never fails ( Psalm 136, Duet 31:6), even though I fail Him. Hence why we are to pickup our cross DAILY (Luke 9:23) and to ad onto that ALL DAY. You can drop it at points. ALSO we MUST put on the Armor of God DAILY (Eph 6:10-18). I like to visualize what that would be physically. Think about the protection and the weight of armor, that you also are carrying a shield (Faith) and a sword (the Word of God). Not even just that but we also must pick up our cross. So the weight of that. Shane was a bone-a-fied tested and true Profit of God. Some are mocking him on my Facebook. UUGGG how I distaste Facebook. There is a man named David Hogan have you ever heard of him? He was the only other person on earth the Shane related to and mentored from because they had similar anointing. Shane always said David was his earthly mentor. God Himself was Shane’s mentor stepping out of Heaven for 7 days and spending time with Shane. I want to know God like this. I want to please God so much that He would step from Heaven and be with me. Like Moses….. like Shane. I seek understanding and wisdom and discernment by the Holy Spirit. I seek the POWER of God (Matt 22:29), for Him to use my life for His glory. First I had to be broken to a point of nothing I could do. I lost my Baby, but what he taught me and showed me and spoke to me is ever with me. It’s because of God we met, and because of Shane I am now walking in the Truth. All glory be to Jesus!! All praise and worship to God in the Highest!!!. You are in the will of God when your life reflects the Word of God.(I’ll get into Shane teachings later) We are to DO ALL things Jesus did when He walked this earth AND MORE!!! (John 14:12) Shane loved Jesus so much, he always told me that if we are to be together I must first love Jesus MORE than him. The reality of that didn’t really take root until God took Shane home. I always loved Jesus with all I had and sought Him with hunger most of my life. Correct doctrine and the TRUTH of the Word of God is what Shane taught me as a sought God more and more in my life. But I never was angry with God or upset at Him when He took my beloved Shane. I only Sought to know Him better and closer like my Shane knew Him. I understand why he was the way he was, why he told me what he told me. I understood his love for Christ Jesus and God the Father. God loves him and us EVEN MORE than we could ever love Him. We can’t comprehend God in all His infinite ways and thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9) God was, is, and will be forever. He is God he LIVES in the past, He LIVES now in the present, and He LIVES in the future. (Eccles 3:15) Something we can’t wrap our simple minds around is that He is CURRENTLY in the past AND the present AND the future. Nothing we do is a shock or surprise. Because He already been there and is there. Trust in Lord Jesus. Have faith to LITERALLY make mountains move. Psalm 118 keeps coming to mind. If God is with you then who can come against you? (Romans 8:31) In everything we do delight in the Lord.(Psalm 37:4) God is so involved with you that he knows the number of hairs on your head (Luke 12:7, Matt 10:30) and has a count of every tear that fell from your eyes (Psalm 56:8). THAT is how IMPORTANT we are to Him. Can we say that we are even striving to be that close to God and know Him like he does us? Remember God doesn’t have to. He is the Almighty Creator. The Author and Finisher. I AM. He could have easily just wiped us out and started over again, BUT He decided to instead send His Son, His ONLY Son, to DIE for OUR SINS.(John 3:16) I believe and love Jesus so much that I KNOW that I can do all things through Him. I won’t leave this earth until God is done with me here. (1 Samuel 14:8-14, Matthew 19:26, Luke 1:37, Proverbs 3:6, Jeremiah 32:27)
