Spirit Chronicles: The Civil War Ghosts

Where I live is an old area where several Civil War camps and battles were once fought. There have been rumors and stories for many generations about people seeing Civil War era soldiers at grave yards, in the woods and on some old farms that were around back in the late 1800’s. I have seen videos online about Civil War ghost with some being quite impressive sightings and video. I had never encountered one in my Spirit Chronicles work and research until I had an experience at a graveyard locally. I was at the graveyard where many Civil War soldiers are buried and as I was doing some EMF and voice recordings I picked up a mans name that said “soldier”.

I asked him to give me his name and he said “dead soldier”. The area of the grave yard I was in has many soldiers buried there from the Civil War, WW1 and WW2 so I was not surprised to hear from a dead soldier. I walked around the grave yard and got a few more random words that I may not be able to attirbute to the same person and never got a name so I moved on and put the information in my research journal for later review. I also went back and listened to the voice and the first two seemed to be the same but the last few were random and made no sense.

Later that night I went to bed and that is when I mostly see, hear and feel spirit. I am a dreamer that sees visions, people, happenings and am generally more open during sleeping time. While I was asleep I saw a man dressed in Union war gear with a beard. He was short in stature maybe 5’6 and about 150 pounds. He had a scraggly beard and was holding his left leg and had a grimace on his face showing the intense pain he suffered. This showed me that he was injured in battle and it was bad enough to cost him his life. I also felt breathing issues and chest pressure which generally tells me that the person was struggling to breath when they passed.

Part of my gift other than sensing spirit, dreaming and visions is feeling the pain they had in life. I often get severe pain in my head, arms, limbs and heart area when I pass by a scene where someone died in an accident or may have been murdered. This can be overwhelming at times and painful so I have to block them often and push them away. It is likely residual spirit haunting an area or a spirit that just has not moved on. In this case the guy I saw was obviously dead and died during the war between the states. He came to me when I was asleep because I have yet to develop the ability to see spirit (except) when I am asleep.

I can see movement and shadows but have yet to see a full body apparition as of today. I talk to them in my sleep and told this man to go to the light and to seek God. I told him he was dead and asked my guardians and Angels for protection for myself and the dead soldier. Often people die from horrific instances and life altering accidents that leave them wandering as a spirit. They are not at rest and may not know they are actually dead. They wander until they find a person that can sense them and help them find the light. I am a light worker and have not seen the Civil War soldier anymore so I am hoping he moved on to the light and is now at rest.

Spirit Chronicles: Light Orbs

Last night I took the dogs out to the bathroom prior to bed time and was struck with the feeling of something or someone being all around me. Out property is very spiritual and some old land and as I noticed whoever was touching my head and arm I pulled my camera out to take a few pictures and videos. I walked around the yard and snapped some pictures and made a few short videos as the “spidy senses” I call them continued to accelerate. I saw a light orb close to me and then it came by my camera and I hoped that I caught it and to my surprise I did.

Actually it came in front of my camera four times during the period of about five minutes of video. You may say it was probably a bug or a trick of the light. I am quickly becoming a veteran spirit hunter and assumed it to be a bug myself. I sat down at the computer, downloaded the video and went through it frame by frame and there it was a light orb “white” light which tells me it was a positive spirit right there on film. I stopped it, edited it and made it larger and it was an obvious “light orb” and not a bug. It was fast and came and went within a few seconds.

An untrained eye would not have caught it but I have been doing this awhile so I was able to see it. At one point of the video I asked it to show itself because I could sense it around me. About five seconds after that request the white orb came into the view of the camera lens on my phone. It went across and back and then came up and down a little later. As I walked around the yard a few more orbs appeared in the video at different phases and were gone quickly. I will be out there tonight with the camera to see if I can catch it again to try and debunk the video I made yesterday.

I have caught voices on recorders, EMF detections and other video than last night. The land we live on is very spiritual and has lots of activity so I am excited about what I can see, hear and film in the future and trying to figure out who the light orb is and what it wants. I have to be careful as well, but my senses can help me be guided as to how to deal with and what I am dealing with. I was told by an advisor to look for orbs and they are finally showing up for me as I make the transition into working with the spirit realm.

Americana- Off Shore Fishing With Dad

Growing up and into my late 30’s we always took family vacations to the beach. When we did my dad, brothers and I would take a day trip with a Captained boat to go out and do some off shore fishing. My dad loved to fish and we often would catch the limit on about every fish we got into to. The last trip we took before my dad got where he could barely see and walk was on a boat called the Captain Stacy. We went out of Morehead City, NC into the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean about 25 miles off the coast of North Carolina.

My dad, two brothers and myself went on this trip. After about a three or four hour boat ride out into the Atlantic into 150-300 feet deep water we put our lines in and soon began to catch Dolphin (not flipper folks) but the actual fish called a Dolphin. We then got into some Amberjack which are big and strong and give one hell of a fight to get into the boat. We fished out the limit on both of those so we moved into some deeper water in search of some bigger game fish.

We put anchor down and suddenly things got hot again and we hit a school of Spanish and King Mackerel and hit the individual limit on both of them. I cannot remember I think it was like 5-7 per person and we had a good time tearing them up and getting them on board the boat. Mackerel is a bony fish that doesn’t eat that well so we gave them to the people who show up everyday at the local docks when the boats come in so they could eat them.

The day continued and we found ourselves surrounded by five or six other boats because we were hitting the fish hard and catching them like crazy on every cast. Other than a few that broke the line or fought off we tore them up that day. Late in the day before coming back in for the three hour return trip we hooked into a large shark. My dad fought it first and then one by one we took turns fighting that beast. It breached the water three times to let us get a hint of his size and power but we never could get it close to the boat.

The last time the shark jumped out of the water three hours later as it was still fighting the Captain got a good glimpse of it and determined based on his experience that we had hooked a 8-10 foot long Tiger Shark that likely weighed in the area of 400-600 pounds. He told us we would not get that thing on the boat and it was best to cut it loose and let it go. He also reminded us that it was getting late in the afternoon and we needed to head back before it got dark. The last thing he said was we really don’t want that full grown adult shark close to a 30 foot boat anyways.

It was big enough to pull the boat around and mean. One huge, lean, mean eating machine. So we cut the line and let it go. That shark won the battle that day as he proceeded to wear all of us out. One by one he kicked our butts and sent us packing and we are all healthy and strong men. My dad was older but was still a 6’4 340 pound mans man and the most experienced of us all and it wore him down also. Just as we were cutting the line my brother hooked a good size fish and as he was reeling it in and just as it was coming out of the water it got hit by another Tiger shark.

This one was not as big but was mean and about 6-7 feet long and he was a monster. He bit the 18 inch long fish in half and kicked his tail at us as to say better stay on that boat. As a kid I spent lots of time in the ocean playing, swimming and fishing for two weeks every summer. But that sunny day in July showed me a life lesson that we are humans and are meant to be on a boat and not in that water out there. We may be the ultimate predator on ground, but those big sharks are the rulers of the deep. They can have the deep water and I will stay my big butt right in the shallows where it belongs.

We lost dad in 2009 and man would I love to fight another big shark or just catch a few pond bass with him. One of these days we will fish again. Dad, thanks for the memories growing up at the beach. Thanks for teaching us how to fish, be men of faith and take care of our families like you did for so long. Happy fishing in Heaven dad!

Love, Hugs and Kisses in Heaven!

Spirit Chronicles: Cleansing Waters

I dreamed I was at a river and in the middle was a man who was very powerful and wonderful. He motioned for me to come forward to him and when I began to go into the water the rushing river slowed to a crawl and I walked straight out to him. He grabbed my hand and pulled me close and looked at me with these amazing eyes and said “cleansing water”. He then pushed me backwards into the water and completely submerged me underneath it. I could breath and did not panic as if I was a fish.

That night before going to bed I had taken a nice shower after working in the yard for about seven hours all day clearing bushes, mowing and weeding the property. I had a long day and was very tired. Our property is full of old spirits and all day I had spirit coming at me so I was physically and mentally exhausted. As I bathed I prayed for the water from the shower to heal me, cleanse me and make me whole. Water is very powerful and is part of nature so it can be cleansing to both the body, mind and soul. It is probably the healthiest thing you can have in life.

I went to bed and said my prayers for Gods grace, guidance and a goods nights sleep. I immediately knew that I was very open to spirit as I had been all day so I meditated a bit and settled in for a good nights sleep. Not long after falling asleep I had the dream of the man in the water cleansing me. I love water and I love God so it makes perfect sense that my guardians, angels and God were there to cleanse me. He put me under the water and made me whole. He took anything I had attached from that day away and gave me a clear path for today. I feel really good today other than being a bit tired from a hard days work in 96 degree weather.

One of my favorite old songs is by the Gaither Vocal Group that says “step into the water, wade out a little bit deeper” and that is what I did. In life we must be willing to ask for healing, cleansing and renewal at times. We must seek God and pray for his grace and mercy in life. I saw God and stepped into the water and he made a path for me to cleanse and renew for another great day today. If you need cleansing go find a rushing river, stream, creek or waterfall. Stand in it and wash yourself clean. God gave us water for life and living just as he gave us Jesus as the water of life.

Isiah 12:3; With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

Ezekiel 36:25; I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleanness, and from all your idols I will cleanse you.

Spirit Chronicles: Attack of the Light Beings

An invasion of aliens came in on the earth really fast.  These light beings flew in on these invisible stealthy ships and landed.  As they came in only certain people could see them and try to warn others.  They were seven to eight feet tall and kind of looked like a shadowy figure with light coming from them.  We were at a football game and when it ended the clouds came over really heavy and made seeing the sun almost blacked out.  In those clouds were these ships that were blended into the clouds.  Cell service was interrupted because I tried to take a picture of the ships when I told people about them they couldn’t see them.  I pointed my camera towards the clouds to snap a photo or record and it began to show a fuzzy screen.

I tried to get it to work and borrowed another phone and it did the same thing.  Outside the fence of the football stadium there were these light beings beginning to walk towards the field and the fence.  I could see them and when I panicked the others around me knew something was wrong.  Then another woman screamed and began to run because she saw them marching in a side by side pattern towards the stadium.  Everyone in the stadium was stuck with nowhere to go so I ran to the fence to try and lock the gate so they could not get inside.  They pushed through the fence and past me and did not touch me or look at me.  They continued to walk across the stadium clearing it one by one.  One by one the people were taken and loaded into these floating bubbles that would quickly take flight and be absorbed into the main ship floating over the stadium.

The main ship was about the size of an aircraft carrier three to four hundred feet long and there were several of them visible.  The local military base sent its war aircraft to check the scene and a battle began.  Our aircraft had no chance against the alien invaders and one by one they were eliminated by these round shaped ships that came flowing out of the main ship  by the thousands.  They were like little five feet round objects that moved at light speed and had a very powerful light beam or laser that destroyed anything they shot.  All of our planes were destroyed and then these small air bubble ships began to shoot at the people that were running.  I looked at my phone and a screen had popped on like a video game screen that showed the ships and their location.  

I am a terrible video game player and I had taken refuge inside a small building to hide and watch the carnage.  I began to mash buttons and realized that I had somehow gained access to the main ship and could destroy the small ones by shooting them with the video game screen.  That is when they began to attack me so I ran as fast as I could and hid behind the bleachers.  The stadium was older and the concrete seemed to block their ships radar and they could not see me or find me.  I weaved my way in and out of the concrete sections hiding and shooting them down.  A teenager then joined me and he was panicking.  I asked him if he was good at video games and he said yes.  I gave him my phone and told him to destroy these things.

As he fought alongside me I began to attack and fight the individual beings and realized that they could not breathe our air so I used whatever I could to bust a hole in their helmets and when I did they would evaporate like a human would in space.  I picked up one of the guns they were using and could not get it to fire so I attacked one of the beings and killed him.  I took his bio suit and out it on and then I was able to fire the weapon.  The weapon was somehow a biological weapon and was attached as part of the bio suit.  Others joined me and the battle moved into the small neighborhoods in town.  People were fighting with guns, knives and whatever they could but most died in the process.  

A group gathered in a building hidden in the woods and planned how to survive and began to fight back.  We gathered food, water and weapons to survive with and I woke up.  This dream was like living in a real science fiction novel or movie.  It was as real as sitting here and typing the story about it.  I can still see the image of the beings walking towards the stadium and beginning to take people away.  I can still hear the gunfire, the planes, the lasers and all the activity that happened in this dream.  It was very disturbing and is similar to a series of dreams I have had about apocalyptic type things like this.

Spirit Chronicles: Darkness Fell on the Land

I had a dream about the darkness rising in America and the fall of America as the greatest country in the world.  Big cities have begun to plunge into turmoil due to anarchy and lost ethics and morals. This is also spreading into the suburbs and small towns across the country.  I saw people in suits surrounded by $$ signs (big tech) helping to spread the ideals of darkness on people.  I saw sin in the form of a beautiful woman that turned into a demon as a symbol of the sinful nature of mankind and how the desires of flesh and sin have become normal and acceptable. 

I saw men and women of power with black eyes representing darkness as Government leaders are not of the light. These people were deceptive leaders full of deep rooted darkness led by a desire for power, greed, money and control over all aspects of citizens.  I saw darkness fall upon the land sending it into a modern day fight for the survival of the country.  But this one is fought using social media, news outlets, the internet and other web based activity that Americans have become addicted to. 

I saw young people with blinds on representing the mind sweep that is going on with social media and the lack of respect being taught to them by parents. A new generation of kids that cannot think for themselves was being formed and will be used as part of the great deception that will continue to occur. Social media shows it and they believe it. I saw a virus released on mankind represented by a viral bug and a man standing there with a lab coat with dark eyes. He was part of the release of some type of global virus yet to come.

I saw free signs and people then fighting, rioting and hurting others when all the free ran low or was no longer available. I saw homeless people, streets on fire and drugs representing part of the demise of America. The plans for social change and social control fail and the country becomes chaotic.  I saw a huge light at the end and people going towards it. That represented the people that turned away from the darkness that fell on America and were still faithful and true to God and his word. I saw an Angel, the US Flag and a Family standing near each other. These represented the union of good and the light force that will eventually win the battle over darkness. God, Country and Family for life!

Spirit Chronicles: The Kidnap Killer

I dreamed about a man that had been kidnapping women and killing them. During this dream I saw three women being taken at various places and was actively involved in the hunt for the killer. Every lead I had fell short and then I saw him take a young lady and drop her off in an alley way. She was draped in a yellow sheet or possibly a yellow rain coat. She was dead and he left her lying there like a piece of trash. I was so mad at him and he walked by me and I got a look at his face. He was around 5’10 and 180 pounds. Late twenties to early thirties with ear length sandy blond hair and dark eyes.

He walked by me and as I was observing him he looked down and pulled a hoodie over his head to try and conceal his identity. I then saw a man in a wheel chair and his brother that takes care of him daily. Both of these men either know the guy or have seen him before. The man in the wheel chair has cystic fibrosis and does not speak but uses a voice box to talk. The brother is older and has a disability also but he can take care of his brother. The brother was on the phone talking to someone and I could not get him to see me or hear me.

I was seeing this from the third eye view looking in. I was not involved in the actual process was watching from the outside. The thing that got me confused was the killer seemed to see me even though no one else could. That tells me that he is evil and knows that I am of the light. That is why he likely can see me and knows I saw him. This may be an older event or something that is current. I will have to do some research on it and see if anyone has been killing people in the area that I cam currently in. I can dream and have visions of the past, present and future and will have to solve this one or it will drive me crazy thinking about it.

Spirit Chronicles: House On the Hill

I saw a huge house built of granite up on a hill way above the ground I was standing on. It was built solid and surrounded by tall Angels holding golden staffs. The Angels were over ten feet tall and were standing guard over the giant house on the hill. The house had twelve huge windows and seven massive doors. Angels smaller than the protectors were coming in and out of those doors bringing people in and out of the granite house. The house was made of granite but shined like crystals of all colors. It was beautiful and very soothing to look at. I knew there was a superior being inside of the house and as people went in and out they transformed into happy people.

Near me was a line of people standing single file in a line that went for miles. People of all ages, races, creeds, and backgrounds standing patiently waiting for their opportunity to go in the huge house on the hill. Not far away was another line of unhappy people that were being held back by a fence of light that they could not pass by. It burned them when they tried to pass by it and made them turn back. These people were lost souls that wanted to reach the house on the hill but had made bad choices in life and died without knowing God.

A wonderful trumpet sounded and every window and door on the huge house on the hill became bright with Gods light. The people in line began to fly into the windows one by one and be absorbed in the windows and doors. They were becoming part of the light of God and getting their reward for being faithful servants and knowing God. This was an end of times tribulation type dream that was a message of hope, grace and mercy for those that are still alive.

A day will come as written in the Bible that all things will come to pass and we will all be accountable of our actions, thoughts, and behaviors. More importantly we will be held to Gods standards and will either get new life or spend eternity on the other side of the light fence looking in. Longing for the freedoms, beauty and love inside the huge mansion on the hill. That mansion is Gods house and was built for his people and those that honor him while they are alive.

John 14:2; In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

Revelation 21:8; But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Spirit Chronicles: Healing Breath of My Guardian Angel

I have had a bad back for several years and lately it has gotten much worse. I have sciatica and lower back muscle issues that keep me from sleeping comfortably most nights. This also limits what I can do physically and was one of the main reasons that I retired from coaching football a few seasons ago. I would hurt really bad after three days of practice and by Thursday and Friday night Football games. I had gotten to the point lately that it was getting harder and harder to function in getting things I needed to do done daily. I began to pray about healing and asking God for healing back a few weeks ago.

I was sincere in seeking his grace and healing and waited patiently. A week ago I was asleep and was dreaming a nice dream about heaven and God. I was suddenly laying on my belly at the feet of an angel that stood way over nine feet tall. In front of her was a guardian spirit, a man I have seen many times that is ancient and looks after me. He gently grabbed my head and told me to lie still and he pushed my head down into water I was lying in about six inches deep. That made me react to going under the water like most people would be pulling my head up. He again said relax and believe and pushed my head into the water again.

As my face submerged into the shallow water I relaxed like I was in the pool at home and submitted to the guardians request. I then felt him lean across my body and blow a cool breath of air at the location where my back has hurt for many years. It was the coolest I have ever felt as if someone blew liquid ice across my lower back. But the difference was it did not hurt at all. I woke up instantly and my wife was lying in bed playing a card game on her phone. She knew instantly something amazing had happened and ask me what it was.

I felt my back and since I had been under the covers every part of my body was lukewarm due to being under the covers. Every part of my body except that one spot on my back. I was ice cold like an ice pack had been on it for twenty minutes. The pain had gone away and I was healed. I had also been praying about going back into football coaching and pursuing a head coaching job. But I knew that the back would not allow me to do that.

I fell back to sleep amazed that my back was not hurting and slept very well the balance of the night. I woke up and went to the bathroom early that morning, hopped right out of bed and went and walked normal for the first time in years. I went back to bed and was doing some meditating what I call “tunnel time” which is when I see, hear and feel spirit while I am vey relaxed. Just as I was ending tunnel time I heard a male say “he wants to coach again”. Then a female said “then go coach”. That was confirmation that I had been given a miracle and that God has a plan for me coming.

I am not sure where I will coach again, but I will soon and my back will not get into the way. Today I was a little sore after a lot of outside activity, but I continue to sleep like a baby with no moving around, tossing and turning. I walk upright as I should and feel very strong. I have been healed by the spirit of God and my guardian did it. I am Thankful for God, his grace, my Angels and Guardians. Ask yours for help, pray about it and be patient and a miracle can come your way.

Jeremiah 17:14; Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.

1st Samuel 12:16; Now therefore stand still and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.

Spirit Chronicles: The Skull Men and The River of Life

I dreamed that I was standing on a hill overlooking a beautiful valley with a winding river that sounded very soothing. In that river there were people swimming and splashing around enjoying themselves. On the banks of the river on each side were dead men made of bones. They were just skeletons standing at the rivers edge but they could not join the fun or get into the water. In the water was another man standing there and he had a strong presence about him. He was an ancient spirit that was good and of the light. This ancient one was overseeing the living and making sure they were happy and not hurt by the skeleton men.

The skeleton men tried to step into the water but when they did they would dissolve as the water hit their bones and disappear as if they never were there. Some of the skeletons were walking with beagle dogs and were attached to them with a leash. The dogs were basically dragging them away from the water and they would go off into the woods and return without the skeleton men and get another. Another man with a whistle was standing there directing the dogs to take the skeletons into the woods.

The dead could not touch him either. When they tried the dogs would attack, grab them and pull them into the dark woods near the water. The woods near the water around the immediate edge were flowery and pretty. The trees were alive and full of flowers and leaves like life itself. The woods a few feet away where the skeletons were being dragged was dark, dense and scary. Nothing could go in and out but the dogs. These dogs were not afraid of the skeleton men and did as the master told them to do and reacted to the dog whistle on command. They were loyal, brave and of the light.

The skeletons continued to try and enter the water but would just wash away or evaporate. They were dead souls, lost souls and wondering spirits that had not found the light before they died. They had spent their lives doubting God and his mercy and salvation and were paying for it. The woods were hell and the water was heaven. The skeletons were doomed to the woods and could not enter the wonderful water and join the heavenly flow. They instead were dragged away by the light worker dogs on command and sent to the darkness and the woods as stated in the Bible.

I woke up and wrote down the dream, I did some research about seeing skeletons, the river and the dogs. I sat down and wrote this dream and am still seeing those wonderful people enjoying the waters. We all will lose our flesh and eventually become a spirit. Will we be placed into the wonderful water for life everlasting or will we become a skeleton and be doomed into the dark woods. I will be a light worker, a warrior of God and take the river. I love the water and when I am in it I say this simple prayer.

Lord, please cleanse me, wash me and make me whole. I repeat that a few times and end with an amen. Try it sometime and see what happens. Step into the water and wait for God to take care of you. Now and forever!

John 7: 3-8; Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

Revelation 22:1; Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Faith- What To Do When You Need Patience

Today as I am trying to pack to go on the yearly summer vacation I find myself needing patience. I am generally laid back and a pretty patient person (exceptions traffic and drive through Windows). I am not sure why but those two things tend to get under my skin especially a drive through if the people in the car with me do not know what they want or keep changing their mind. I get to the point of “just flipping order something”. Patience is required in life as we spend lots of time waiting at the doctor, stores, drive throughs, traffic, restaurants and in my case waiting on a woman (my wife and two daughters). Seems like it takes them forever to make up their mind on clothes and getting dressed.

Then when we go shopping it takes forever to go in the store and grab stuff. That turns into an all day shopping excursion and I have things to do at home. God wants us to be patient and patience in mentioned in his word in both the new and old testament. I have to exercise patience as a public school teacher and coach with teenagers. I have to get better at being patient and the only way I can do that is to work on it hard. Focus on it and ask the Lord for patience and grace in that process. Being patient is kind, loving, friendly, helpful, avoids stress and anxiety. Being patient is what God expects us to be when dealing with our family and friends. Being patient requires us to submit to Gods plan in our lives and live the best we can and “wait”. For me that is the hard part!

James 5: 7-8; Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

Psalm 37:39; Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

Faith- Doubting God

Today as I was riding around the yard mowing and listening to some good Christian Worship music a few songs came on that really hit me hard and the message I got was that we often have doubt in God and his promises. I have had my times when I doubted God, mostly when things were going bad, getting hard and tough to deal with. We want things and want it our way but that is not how it works with God. When we ask for something or pray for something we do not always get the answer we want. We get what God wants us to have as he controls all things human, spiritual and in between.

As I was thinking about this and listening to the words in these songs the thought of God being constant and always with us, guiding us and helping us hit me hard. I have had a very spiritual evolution of late since I had a near death experience back in September of 2020. I had faith in God but had slipped in that faith and how he has handled me and dealt with me since then has shown me that his love, grace, mercy and care are like no other I could ask for or expect. In the bible its tells us that faith in God is the foundation of life.

Faith in God is the rock by which we build a solid foundation. He is the way, the light, the miracle, the past, the present and the future. Human nature leads to doubt. We are emotional creatures and that emotion can take a toll on our faith on people and the Lord. We struggle at times with mental, physical and spiritual battles. These things create anxiety and fear of the unknown. These things can separate us from God and drive us to carry baggage that God wants us to get rid of.

When things get hard sit down and pray. Make a list of the ways God has blessed you and your family. Making this list will bring you back to the understanding that God is omni present in our lives and is leading us the way he wants us to go. We put ourselves in bad situations and that makes us doubt not only what we believe but our belief on God. We win some, we lose some, we tie some. God always wins and we have to see the wins in these situations to remove doubt. We lose a family member and doubt comes crashing in. Know that God has that soul now and they are fine.

We lose a job, a house, a spouse and other things we have. This throws doubt, anxiety and tests our faith. Hold strong and know that God has this. He is in charge and will take care of things. He will carry us through it. I put together a list of things that I think help me stay stronger in my faith. Things that can help you get closer to God and know that his support and love in constant and always present. We must first overcome our own doubt to overcome the doubt we have in God. Life can be disappointing at times and in those times we must not doubt God, but find strength in his words and actions. God is awesome, caring, loving, supportive and patient. We must be the same to be a person of confidence and not a “doubter”.

1- Do not rely on your own emotions, confidence and actions to try and overcome the big challenges in your life.

2- We adopt worry, anxiety and fear as our way of dealing with things.

3- We question Gods goodness and grace in our lives.

Reading Isiah 26, I found these three ways to cast any doubt we have about God in our lives away.

1- Seek God and his everlasting power when times are tough.

2- Know that God promised us safety, grace and mercy in the Bible.

3- Know that God never doubts us and we should never doubt him.
