SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
When we are striving to do the will of the Lord we will be facing opposition. That is a given. I am on the third volume of Portrait of a Harlot/Saint and thought that I would be completing it on May 28th so I took a week off from my radio programs "to wrap it up". That did not occur though I did get the first of my Gramma's Guide series up and I am happy with that. It can be found on Amazon under Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter.
Vanity, distraction (such as other things to learn), conflict with others...all kinds of things get in the way when you decide to place God's will above all and do as he would have you do.
I am doing this program as a witness to myself so that I can get back "in the saddle".
To understand that we must love others from a distance and that we sometimes even need to sustain others as leaders or in their callings even while having a witness that they may have issues themselves is a big thing. We are here to claim our own existence.
Maybe even more than believing in God we need to stretch to believe in ourselves more completely. We need to believe in his belief in us, in his faith that we can do what he sent us here to do.
Some of us will face horrific situations, I think of the veterans of military or those of loss of innocence as witnesses of violence and abuse and childhood. These circumstances where known to us before we came here and God will help us go through them, but we must reach out to him by accepting his love for us. Forgiveness of others and of self is crucial in this journey. He will help us I have no doubt.
I have decided that it is too difficult to teach "in process". By this I mean that I cannot go through daily life and give you a proper perspective knowing that it is the Spirit guiding and not my emotions or intellect at the moment so instead I am going to something that I have already made public.
I am going to be reading my first self-published book. While I read it I will be commenting on what is written, the how's and whys, and you might hear me comment on present day a bit as well. I know that all this is to help me to heal and I pray that it may useful to someone else as well, perhaps someone who has travelled a similar road or my posterity as they wonder how in the world did we get "here". : )
May God direct as I do this. I am also preparing a book to go up on May 1st that will begin the definition of the woman behind the Portrait of a Harlot/Saint : P.
This is a big week for me. My name changes again and I declare a voice and a purpose or goal of testifying of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the plan of happiness that God has given us.
A lot of what I said tonight was about courage. I am not one who has found it easy to have courage...you know, even as I say that I believe I would have to say that is not true. I have had courage. Courage to be and do a lot of things that I did not want to do. Courage to bring children into the world and stand by them, as long as I could when the the world was so mixed up I did not know which way to turn. I have had courage to reach out and claim a life and a walk that helped me to define who I was and allowed me to face those "forks in the road" where I had to choose who I would serve.
I currently have a 5 day a week radio show that I do and a full time job. A part time job and an active facebook that I witness on regularly. My blog has not been so active but that will need to change. I may make a new one just for this book series that I am going to do on Kindle. I am very excited for it. Courage, I know that I shake the adversary's cage and as I do he will not rest in seeking to bring me down. I have faith that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ will provide a way for me to do the work I have been called to do. I just have to get in there and do the work. And so I shall. And the rest I will leave to him. I love the gospel, I love the church, and know that this organization is the greatest of all upon the earth and it will be preserved for God's purposes. Till we meet again, Christa-Ann.
Welcome to the inaugural show with Christa-Ann for "Courage to Be God's Daughter"! In this first show of many to come, Christa-Ann will give listeners a brief background and talk about the goals of the show. Christa-Ann will also be talking about the Freedom to Be and discussing the meaning of Courage, Sacrifice, Faith in Christ and Honoring Self.
My hopes for this program is to be a bridge:
-for those who do not understand what the Mormons are all about
-disgruntled or concerned members
-to understand God's pure and complete love for you
-self love and honoring self is important as walking as a son or daughter of God
-to show a way to be at peace
