"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable or error, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

I knew I started something when I posted my Walk On Weds. with the letter "B", and stated Basic BELIEFS ... knowing that now I would have to do something for each letter, sequentially ... without posting any blogs in between to keep the order. With the second letter being an "E" and looking ahead at the Entire Word, noting that there are 3E's ... I began brainstorming words that begin with "E" and it was so Easy yet the catch is how do they relate to BELIEVE or which ones do:

...Embrace...Engage...Encourage... Experience...Effect...Express...
Eagerly Expect

the ESSENCE of my BELIEFS are found in
Jesus Christ

What's the connection? or which words that came to me
were connected spiritually? 


Since I am putting all the rest of my blog posts on hold
I needed to get serious about this acronym


I don't think I want to define
with the acronym
or the word
would do
{empirical evidence}
 faith - my faith tells me - God exists and 
there is more than enough evidence


I think it's too early in 2018
to know where
wants to take me
Exploring this One Word


I know all those Words that came to me 
are spiritually in-tune with
they were not just random words


I don't believe that I should be lining up Bible
for this acronym
{oh, guess I have my "V" word}
I'm pretty sure
that after all my procrastination
in choosing or deciding
I ended up with
to be the first

Since the first word was a noun dealing with what iBelieve, I probably should be looking at nouns that deal with Belief or Believing and "eagerly expecting" for sure belongs with what I Believe and what I hope others come to Believe soon but what is God speaking to me about "believing"? since I believe yet have to admit that at times "unbelief" sneaks in, when I should be believing even stronger such as is the case with Miracles and whether God hears or answers many prayers that seem like I've been praying forever. Part of what I am learning about praying, is that I need to come to the throne of God expecting that I will receive whatever, if it lines up with God's will and word and just as important, that iBelieve and receive what He promises in His Word, not just say that I believe.

I am
much revelation

this is just part of what
God plans to do
with this

(actually He is more than Enough!)

truly I do
His Word never fails nor has He!

"We Believe"

In this time of desperation
When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only one foundation
We believe, we believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only one salvation
We believe, we believe

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He's comin' back again, we believe

So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, we believe!

We believe in God the Father!
We believe in Jesus Christ!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back again!

Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live loud, our God we'll say
We believe, we believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God, has torn the veil!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, we believe!

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back,
He's comin' back again!
He's comin' back again!
We believe!
We believe "

I don't want to debate or defend my BELIEFS on my blog, other than to say that have basically remained the same even though I have changed my choice of religious affiliation 3 times that I view as progression, yet my basic beliefs are fundamental truths found in God's Word and based on God's Word, not any person, other than Jesus Christ Himself. For most of my life, I have not lived up to what I believe, nor have my actions shown or proven to others that I believe what I believe. In fact, I have had to defend my beliefs much of my life because my life did not Exemplify my Christian Beliefs. In 2018, I hope to better show what iBelieve and live a life better in-line with my fundamental beliefs. which I may share here and there, but not to debate them. May my words and actions Exemplify Jesus Christ as I reflect more of His image and teachings. Yes, this is the year to Expect eagerly & Exemplify extraordinarily my Lord and King-Jesus!

  1. "Eagerly Expecting" is really the way every child of God should live because we know God is faithful and true and always keeps His promises...it's easy for me to basically "forget" this sometimes in the middle of "life" and all the "stuff" it entails...but if I truly believe as I profess, then every situation/heartache/delay/moment is changed with the eternal prospective of "eagerly expecting" what is to come next...so thank you, sis, for this much needed reminder! I needed it!
