I must praise God…because He cares for me!

I will glorify Him for confirming my Faith, I have been getting signs to go into entrepreneurship more. I went to a Birthday yesterday and the very rare name of my business was the name of one of the other little girls having a birthday party. As we walked into the skating rink and asked for Samantha’s party, the woman behind us SURELY said the name (Stat tuned to my site for the big reveal of my business’ name.) my husband turned to her and said, “Do you know what that name means? It means Nourished.” She responded, “Yes, that’s why we named her.”

God kept on blessing because He sent means for the next door to open this morning!

Praise God!

“For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:14-46‬ ‭KJV‬‬

““At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ “ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:1-13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

I am taking the charge to prepare myself now for my true future, my eternal life.

As time goes on, we can get deeper and deeper into our physical lives. Our circumstances feel insurmountable and we spin our energy trying to fight our problems on our own. Yet. We have a savior if we accept Him.

We are thinking we still have time to repent. Christ ain’t coming back YET! Things ain’t that bad YET! We think we can change Later, we can live for God Later. We can repent Later. But, what if your personal clock ⏰ 🕰 runs out? What if your last day is coming soon? What if Christ does appear? Will we be ready? Who is going to give you oil? Can you be saved because your grandmama was saved? Was your baptism as a child enough to cover all the sin you have done as an adult? Are you obedient to God? Are you trying to be?

We do need to think about this as much as we think about our bills being paid and our jobs being secure. We need to be ready.

Hear. Believe. Confess. Repent. Be Baptized.

Out of love,

Lauren

Aramco was hit with an airstrike by drones, causing the company to lose millions of gallons of oil. The Houthi rebels in Yemen have claimed responsibility for the air strike. Prices for oil may fluctuate, but Aramco will use its reserves to offset its affected customers. This could mean a change in gasoline prices in America, however, our national oil reserves will be used to offset prices as well.

It is shocking to observe countries/groups attacking one another’s source of subsistence/wealth. Wow.

Direct quote taken from the article: “Saudi Arabia, the biggest producer in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, has been leading the group in production cuts to mop up a surplus of crude in the market. So when half of Saudi Arabia’s production is knocked out, the question is how long the disruption lasts.

“The global economy can ill afford higher oil prices at a time of economic slowdown,” Ole Hansen, head of commodities strategy at Saxo Bank A/S in Copenhagen, said in an emailed response to questions. So while a surge in prices driven by lower supply “may temporarily remove the focus on slowing demand, it could, if prolonged, potentially reduce demand growth expectations even more.”

My heart goes out to the President and CEO of Aramco as he fixes this egregious and malicious attack.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am praying for Saudi Arabia and for their enemies. Protect life in this situation, Father and restore what was lost. In Jesus’ name, amen.

“Whatever you bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven. Whatever you loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.”

“Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
