    Shalom Samantha and everyone else πŸ™‚

    I had a very stressful tragedy happen last night! As you may know, Me and my family have over 50 websites which, I have spent tireless hours designing! Between the ministry and the business, we had so many websites, email accounts and databases which pretty much hold all our livelihood…. Well, as I was going to delete one of the sites I had just installed, to re-upload and install it, I accidentally deleted all of our websites, email address and everything else that was on our server! The bad thing is that non of it was backed up and so now years of work has to be redone. And all this was done at a time when things were just starting to come up out of the water for us. It is very depressing for us as well as stressful, especially for me, for most of the work was of my hands! Please pray for the saneness of my head that I can do everything in speedy peacefulness and keep a cheerful spirit while doing it! All I know is that this must have been YHWH’s will, in that He wanted us to learn something in the process! Please also pray that we learn what we need to from all this and that everything will be alright as far as the promises we hold to customers and readers! Thank you very much for your prayers…Jessica

      Shalom Jessica,

      As much as it wasn’t a lot of websites that I had, I remember full well what happened when I accidently deleted VD a few months ago! It was very trying, to say the least, but, Yahweh taught me that “all things do work together for the good to them that love Him” (Roms 8:28). Trust that He knows what He is doing! I had to walk away (with many tears) after deleting it, but I believe that it was for my best as He has taught me SO much through it and has shown me so much about VD that I didn’t know or know how to do! So trust Him! I had to pray this verse over and over again as I began to work on it, and it really did bring a lot of peacefulness to my heart over it all. There was a lot of times that I just simply had to walk away from my computer and take a walk and quote this verse until I had peaceful calmness about it all again, then I would go back to working on the site. So when you get discouraged or question why you accidently did this, remember that it is He who controls the figures. There was a reason He allowed this. Try to find out what this reason was, and even if you don’t know now, trust that it WAS for the best! Trust Him! He will work ALL things out, even this!

      Love and prayers,
      Samantha

      Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
      1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in the anointed Yahshua concerning you.” – this was another verse that I quoted over and over again!

      Dear Jessica,

      I am so sorry for your online incident, things like that have happened to me, but not so bad.
      I am praying for you and will continue to.

  2. Sarah says:

    My dad has no job. Please pray that he will be able to find a job and that I will be a good example to my younger siblings. Also pray about the wild fires. In Texas there has been many fires. Our friends had to evacuate their house and it was burned down! I’m so happy to know that YHWH is in control!

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Dear Sarah,

      I am so sorry to hear that your father has lost his job and about your friends house!

      “Dear Heavenly Father,

      I ask that you will please be with Sarah’s father and provide him with the perfect job that he needs. Please provide for all of their needs and continue to keep them all safe through all these fires. Thank you so much for being in-charge of all things. May your will be done in all things! Thank you for being the most wonderful Father that we could ever wish for! I ask all this in your Son’s precious name! Amen!”

      Will be praying, Sarah!
      ~Samantha

  7. Rose says:

    Hello,
    I’m writing this because my mother just had her baby too early and I really would like him (The baby) to stay alive. He would be the only boy in the family and our family loves hi so dearly. We have six girls and one boy now and my older sister Maria has to take care of the rest of the girls, as do I because I am right underneath Maria in age. I have prayed to YHWH but I just don’t know if he will answer our prayer. Our family is so worried, especially the youngest girl, Josephine. My dad keeps telling us that everything will turn out alright but how can he say that if the boy (Luke) dies? I feel so unsure of YHWH right now. We all need prayer for us. Thank you.

    Rose Halline

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Oh, Rose! I am praying for you and your family! Please do know that “all things will work out for the best” and we can know this because Yahweh tells us this; Romans Chapter 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Regardless as to what happens with your little brother, Rose, never doubt God’s love for you and your family! We may not understand why He allows things this side of heaven, but we do know that He doesn’t lie and He has told us that all things will work out for the good to them that love Him.
      I know what it means to lose a sibling. My sister was stillborn at 26 weeks. I have also lost a dear friend who was like my little sister, at age 4 from cancer, and although I have lost them, I can still have assurance and can trust that although it isn’t what I would have chosen for them, He did and He does know what is best. Let this time draw you closer to Him! Trust Him through this…He knows what He is doing, Rose. One day you will too, but He may not answer that question this side of heaven.

      “Oh, precious Father,
      Father, we don’t understand the “why’s” behind some of what you allow us to go through and do, but Father, we do know that your ways ARE perfect! Father, help our unbelief! Give us the ability to trust you, even when we are weak and hurting. And Father, if it be your will, Father please heal Rose’s little brother and make him into a strong man of you! Give Maria and Rose the strength and encouragement to take over their house, Father, and care for these little ones. Give their parents the strength, love and encouragement that they also need. Comfort them all, Father. I remember when my own little brother (who’s now 14) was born premature and all the ups and downs that come with a little one in the NICU. Father, draw this family in your embrace. Help them be your shining lights, even in this journey of the unknown. Father, thank you for always being there and seeing us through time just like these! We can trust you, because we know you have never left us and promise to never leave us, too! I love what your word says in Isaiah 41:10 “ΒΆFear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Help us to always believe this, Father. I ask this in Your Son’s precious and almighty name, amen!

      Rose, please keep us all up to date on how your little brother is doing and know that we will be praying for all of you! My brother was also in the NICU for awhile. We’ve been through the ups and downs, but I can thankfully say, as hard as it was to go through it all, he is doing great! So don’t give up on him! These little ones are fighters, and if it’s Yahweh’s will for your little brother to live, he will live to be a strong little boy!!! Trust Him, Rose. Don’t let Satan try to destroy your trust in the Father. Even if you don’t understand, don’t let that shake your faith, let it draw you closer to Him!

      I love you, sweetheart! Keep in touch!

      Praying,
      Samantha

  8. Jeanie says:

    Dear Rose,

    My heart goes out to you! I am a mom of many children and I can say how hard it is to have a child in the NICU. One of our sons was born 2 months early, but he had a strong will and he survived, so please do not give up hope. Our family will be praying for you all. I know it is hard to think that all things can work together for good in a situation like this, but they do. There is a reason for everything and even though we do not understand the things we go through now, I believe that someday we will be able to understand!

    With love and prayers,
    Jeanie

  9. Rose says:

    Thank you for the encouragement. Luke is just getting worse.:( I am praying to YHWH more than ever now.

  10. Rose says:

    Two and a half months

  11. Rose says:

    Luke is getting better! πŸ™‚ Praise YHWH!

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Oh! Praise Yahweh!!! We’ve all been praying, Rose, and I am SO happy to hear this!!!! Know that we will continue to lift up you and your family in our prayers!

      Love always,
      Samantha

  12. Grace Harrison says:

    Rose,
    I am so sorry for you. I have been praying already. Do you mind if I ask how old you are? Remember that anything that happens is YHWH’s plan for you.
    Dear Heavenly Father,
    We lift up Rose and her family; we pray that Rose will be able to know that you are the Lord and that you know all things. I pray Lord that Luke will be able to recover, and that the little children in Rose’s family will not be too frightened. Lord if you could show Rose why you are doing this I think that she would like that. I pray that her mother would be able to recover quickly as well. In Jesus name we pray,
    Amen

  13. Rose says:

    Luke is getting even better and the doctors cannot believe it! My dad has had chance’s to witness to some doctors even! Thank you so much for your prayer Grace. I think YHWH wanted this to happen because now we are bringing doctors to YHWH! My mother is doing well. I am fourteen years old. It is so so nice to know that other YHWH followers are praying for me! Thank you!

    Rose

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Oh thank you, Yahweh!!! How we praise you for your wonderful works and miracles on this little ones life! May He grow up to be a strong man in you and know what you have done for others through his little life.
      Rose, I’m SOOOOO happy for you all!!!! And praising Yahweh for the added lives in the Kingdom! πŸ™‚ Keep trusting, believing and witnessing!!!

      All glory and honor to the Father,
      Samantha

  14. Rose says:

    I am so happy!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  15. Rose says:

    Please keep praying!!!!!!!

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Oh, Rose! Know that we will keep praying! I know that there can be a lot of ups and downs with a little one in the NICU. Keep trusting, Rose.

      “Dear Heavenly Father,

      Father we thank you for all that you have accomplished thus far in this little life of Luke’s. Father, we ask that you would please be with him tonight and that you would heal and mature his little body. Father, please continue to give the doctors the wisdom that they need as they minister to this family of yours. Please give Luke’s family the strength, courage, and comfort that they need through tonight and all the coming weeks as they watch your hand at work in their lives and Luke’s life. I thank you for the faith that you have given them, just ask that you would continue to hold them all close to you. Encourage each of them, Father. In all this I pray, not my will, but thine be done.”

  16. Grace Harrison says:

    Hello,
    As you all might know, this month is breast cancer awareness month. Well, my Nana noticed a bump about a year ago right above her left breast. She went into the doctor and they said that it had no cancer. About a week and a half ago she went into the doctor again and her test was a positive. πŸ™ She does have breast cancer. Our family do not know if she is a believer. Neither really are any of her family members. We think that sort of like Rose this is a chance to witness. She has already showed interest in learning more about God! That is very exciting! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ By the way, I am ten (10) years old but my birthday is this Tuesday!!! I will be Eleven (11)! SO please pray about that. It is the grandma on my dad’s side and this is really tough for him. We (our family) have prayed so much, please do the same.
    Thank you! πŸ™‚

    Grace Harrison

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Dear Grace,

      I am so sorry to hear about your Nana! Please know that I will be praying for her! Something that she may want to consider doing is getting off of ALL sugar, as this feeds the cancer. A friend of ours is dealing with her breast cancer completely naturally, and although she has had it for years (and it was something like stage 3-4 a couple of years ago) said that as long as she keeps to non-processed foods and no sugar, she does really well. You would never know that she has cancer. I think she also juices. Just a thought.

      Happy birthday, too! Eleven is a very special age and I’m so glad that you will be there for your grandmother. You may want to think about writing her little encouraging notes with scripture. That may be one way that you can witness to her in your own special way. :o)

      I’d like to pray with you before closing.

      “Dear Precious Father,
      Father, you above all else, know the end from the beginning and understand why all this is taking place. Father, I’m so glad that we aren’t in charge, but Father, sometimes not being in-charge is so very hard! Help us to know what to do, what to say, and how to encourage our loved ones through these hard times. Show Grace how to minister to all those around her and share your love with them. Bring her Nana to a place where she will know her need for you is so real. Guide them as they go through this battle, showing them what to do and what not to do. Bring them the encouragement and support that they need. I also ask that you would comfort Grace’s father, as I know how hard it is to face cancer with a loved one. I also ask that you would richly bless Grace this coming year and help her to become the young lady that you need her to become. Bless her as she enters maidenhood. Keep her set apart and pure, Father. In all this, I pray not my will, but thine be done!”

      Love you, Grace! Remember Isaiah 41:10 through all of this, as well as Pro. 3:5-6! Yahweh is with you, just trust Him through all of this!
      Samantha

      • Grace Harrison says:

        Thank you so much for the prayer! πŸ™‚ Today Nana will go in and see how serious her cancer is. We are all praying.

        Grace

  17. Grace Harrison says:

    My family really appreciated your prayer. Thank you. My dad gave Nana a book about God’s plan and a book about prayer from our church, Berhachah which means blessing in Hebrew. She is already half through the books! Keep Praying! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    ~Grace

  18. Samantha Samantha says:

    Grace, so good to hear that your Grandmother is reading those books! Yahweh’s will be done!

  19. Samantha Samantha says:

    Rose,

    How is Luke doing? Know that we have been praying and thinking about you all! Write an update when you have the chance so that we all know how to keep praying. πŸ™‚

    Love and prayers,
    Samantha

  20. Grace Harrison says:

    Okay, my Nana has the type of cancer that will spread over different areas quickly and the doctors said that they caught it just in the nick of time. She will have surgery on Monday so you can pray about that too. My dad is going with her on Monday to comfort her and Grandpa M.N.M. (Mustache no Mustache) because he is an atheist and is very scared about this. Nana on the other hand is not so scared and since she is a nurse she knows all the people that will be doing her surgery so that will be nice for her.

    @Rose
    Yes, how is Luke? How is your Family? our family has been praying for you. πŸ™‚

    Blessings,
    Grace Harrison

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Grace,

      Know that I will be praying and am praying for your Nana and family! May Yahweh soften your Grandfather’s heart and all those around.

      Thank you for keeping us up to date on how things are going!
      Samantha

  21. Rose Haline says:

    Everyone is asking how Luke is, well he is doing great, he’s sort of just the same. Thank you for praying πŸ™‚

    ~Rose Haline

  22. Grace Harrison says:

    Oh good! I praise God as well. πŸ™‚

  23. Grace Harrison says:

    Okay………….Nana has another lump of cancer on the other side. πŸ™ :S Please pray!

    ~Grace

  24. Grace Harrison says:

    nana is in surgery right now.

  25. Grace Harrison says:

    NANA IS OKAY!! WE ARE STILL WAITING TO SEE IF HER CANCER HAS SPREAD ANYWHERE ELSE!!!!!!

    GRACE :):)

  26. Rose Haline says:

    Hello,
    Luke has gone to be face to face with YHWH. πŸ™ Our family is happy that he has no more pain, but is also sad, of course.
    I am very, very busy, so when I find free-time I will write more about it.

    Rose Haline

  27. Grace Harrison says:

    Nana has cancer in other parts of her body. πŸ™ She has still not come to YHWH! The other day we went to visit her. She will have to have khemo therapy. We looked at some caps with her.

  28. Grace Harrison says:

    Also, she is coming to see us on thanksgiving so if you could pray for a safe trip that would be nice!

  29. Grace Harrison says:

    How did I get a picture?

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Okay, if you have a picture on your gmail profile, this may happen. It is using whatever form/profile you sign in with. So if you have a picture on your profile now, that may be what is causing that.

  30. Grace Harrison says:

    Nana is doing better! However she still has to have chemo therapy.
    We just visited her and she said that she has been praying a lot! My brother gave her a cool coin with John 3:16 on it. She said that she kept it the whole time while she was doing testing! Isn’t that neat?

  31. Amanda says:

    Hello Samantha,
    I just need some prayer right now due to anxiety I am feeling about some future steps I need to be taking for school, and finances that go along with that. I would like prayer for clarity and peace as God guides me to His will, and that, Lord willing, the transitions that need to be made will be smooth.
    Also, as I am feeling much anxiety over all this, I would ask if you’d pray with me for strength and peace as I strive more and more to trust Him the way I am called to as His daughter.

    Thank you, sister.
    Amanda

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Dear Heavenly Father,

      Yahweh, I lift up Amanda before you. Father, I pray that you would please give her your abiding peace and calm through this unknown territory. Father, sometimes it is so hard to trust you with our future, but Father, there isn’t anyone more fully capable of seeing us through, than you! Please help us to trust you more fully each and every day! Father, I love the way Isaiah 26:3a puts it “Though wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:…” Father, help us to keep our mind on Thee, not on the circumstances surrounding us. Father, as Psalms 31:15 says, “my times are in thy hand”. Our times are in your hands. You see the beginning to the end and Father, if anyone knows how to lead us in the right path, it is you! So Father, I ask that you would give Amanda that strength to keep stayed on you, to not fret about tomorrow, but to instead, fully trust you with all things, knowing that your ways are what is best! Father, I pray that you would show her the way, what choices that she needs to make, and give her the strength to make them. Bless her Father, as she seeks your face!

      In all this, I ask not our will, but Thine be done. Amen!”

      My precious sister,

      Know that you will be continually lifted up! May Yahweh bless and guide you and make His face shine before you! Keep striving and seeking…He’ll lead you! πŸ™‚

      Love always,
      Samantha

  32. Grace Harrison says:

    Hello,
    My grandma just got her head shaved today and she said that she cried and the girl who had to do her hair cried, as well as her husband. Please keep her in your prayers and pray that she will not be too down heartened by this.

    We are also going to drive out and go and see them today at their house which is almost 2 hrs away from our house, so please keep our driving safety in your prayers.

    Also, my friend’s family came from India to try and find a job in America to get a work visa to be able to stay in America, and their visa has been extended many times, and will run out on April 1rst, and they cannot get their visa extended any more unless their dad gets a job by April.

    Thank you so much for being here to pray for all of this! πŸ™‚

    Grace Harrison

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Dear Grace,

      I was just about to contact you and ask you about an update on your grandma! May Yahweh bless you all with peace and keep softening your grandmothers heart for Him!
      I will pass the word along to my dear family and we will be praying for your friends, too! Yahweh can work in mysterious ways! Keep trusting! If it’s His will, they’ll be able to stay!

      “Dear Heavenly Father,
      Father, I ask that you would please continue to be with Grace’s grandmother as she undergoes treatment. Father, please soften her heart towards you and help her to realize her great need for you! Please comfort her and strengthen her as she continues to fight this battle.
      I also ask that you would please bring work along for Grace’s friends Father, if it be your will. Father, help them to know how to go about this, where to look and where you would like them. Help them to continue to trust deeply in you and to follow your abiding will for their lives.
      And Father, I want to thank you for Grace and her love for her family and friends. Bless her Father. Help her know how to continue to minister your love to those around her.

      In your Son’s precious name, Yahshua! Amen”

  33. Grace Harrison says:

    Samantha,
    I thought I would give you an update on my Grandma. She is doing fine, and is on her 9th out of 16 Chemo therapy’s. She is in a good mood, but sometimes feels sick, or has a fever. Please continue praying!

    The Indian family has gotten an extension to their stay in America.

    My dad’s business is, well, you might want to call it BOOMING!

    THANK YOU!

    Samantha,
    Please pray, I sprained by wrist horribly, and now I have to wear a glove, and it hurts!

    Grace Harrison

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Oh, Grace,

      I’m not sure how I missed this comment. I am so so sorry to hear about your wrist being sprained last month. Please know that you are in my prayers. May Yahweh use this time of slower activity to speak to you and draw you ever closer to Himself and may He bring a quick and full recovering, soon!

      Blessings, Love and Prayers,
      Samantha

  39. Emma says:

    Oh, That is Great! Praise The Lord!!!

  40. Jessica says:

    Shalom!

    I am asking that everyone please pray for our family that we find a house real soon! We are trying to be in one before it gets too chilly down here. They say it is supposed to get cold by the end of November through February. Please pray that we can find a good deal, and that everything will work out in YHWH’s will and timing!

    Thank you,
    Jessica

  41. Jessica says:

    Just to want everyone to know that YHWH has blessed us with a new home. It is not necessarily how I originally had thought things would turn out, but it was in His perfect timing and has been a beautiful blessing for our family. The Almighty has led us to travel on the road some more, and so we have been blessed with a camper that accommodates our whole family in comfort! Praise YHWH for His goodness and His Answering our prayers!

  42. Emma says:

    Shalom Samantha and everyone…

    My family is in need of some prayer that our house will sell. It has been on the market for over a year now, and still nobody wants to buy it. Yahweh has provided us with a beautiful house on thirty five acres, but our old house still has not been sold, and it’s kind of a problem. Please pray that Yahweh will send a buyer for our house very, very quickly, (Possibly before Yom Teruah) and that Yahweh will give my parents peace. Please pray also that my Mama has a safe pregnancy and that the baby will be healthy and strong, and that there will be no complications. Blessings and Shalom!

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Dear Heavenly Abba,

      We come before you on behalf of Emma and her family. Abba, you know the needs of each one of us. We ask that you would meet this need that this family has. Please bring a buyer for their home, if that be your will. Draw whoever it is that is supposed to buy their home, to them. If this isn’t your will, we ask that you would nonetheless supply the need that is there. We also pray for Emma’s mother and little sibling. How you love children, Abba, and we thank you for this little precious bundle of life and joy that you are blessing them with! Please put your hand of protection and health upon both of them, and see them through this time. In all this, Abba, we ask in your precious son’s most holy name, Yahshua the Messiah (anointed)! Amen!

      Emma, a verse that has truly meant a lot to me, and that has meant a lot to my precious Ima is Isaiah 41:10. It may be a huge comfort for your Ima, too. πŸ™‚ Shalom! Samantha

      • Emma says:

        Thank you so much for your prayers, Samantha. We just had an offer on our house, but it’s really low, so please pray that Yahweh will give my parents wisdom on how to act. Shalom~Emma

  43. Emma says:

    Samantha, I thought I should let you know that our house is sold! All praise to Yahweh and his merciful deeds! It’s such a miracle that we were able to close the day before the government shut down. It would have effected the man’s loan, and we probably would still have a house that we don’t need.

    • Samantha Samantha says:

      Oh, Emma! That’s wonderful! You could be praying for our family as we embark on the same path of trying to sell our farm so that we can move where we feel Yahweh leading us! I’d greatly appreciate it!

      • Emma says:

        Absolutely! Yahweh, we pray for Samantha and her family, that you will bring the right buyer for their farm and that it will be sold very quickly. We pray that you will open all the doors, and that everything will work out perfectly. Thank you, so much. Omaine!!!

        Thank you so much for praying, Samantha. I will continue to pray for your family.

  44. I ask that people pray for my own blog in its entirety. Fir example, Wednesdays are my faith day, and I’m getting into some controversial topics (or at least I hope to be) so I need guidance especially with that matter. Also, good products that I can review (books, music, etc).

    And separately a friendship that may or may not be struggling, that I would have greater assurance that God is in control.

    Thanks ladies πŸ™‚

    Not to long ago me and my brother got into a heated arguement which got us both into trouble. This has been going on since we were 8 and 5 now I’m 14 and he’s 11 and we still cant get along. Please pray for me and my brother that we will get along.
    I really would like to get along with my brother.

      Dear sweet sister,
      I will certainly be praying, but I want to encourage you to do something. There is obvious tension between the two of you. I’d like to encourage you to do something that has helped me in the past. Look for ways to praise your brother for anything and everything that he does or tries to do, correctly. If he makes his bed or does his chores, praise him. If he dresses nicely, tell him. If he does anything, praise him. Praise him, praise him, praise him. Write him letters of encouragement. Pray for him. Spend time with him. Go out of your way to bless your brother. Would making his bed, bless him? Would placing an encouraging and loving letter under his pillow, bless him? Have you done anything to offend him? Go to him and ask his forgiveness. What was it that caused the tension back when you were 5 and 8 years old? Have you spoken about it, asked forgiveness, etc? Remember, pride causes contention. Be careful to not have a spirit of pride, remembering that a “soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger” Proverbs 15:1. You could do a 30 day Love Dare for your brother. πŸ™‚ Find different ways, each and every day, to show him how much you love him and admire him (for the things you can…for I am sure if you look, you will see something in which you can admire!). Become a magnifying glass…in a good way…and watch what praise can do! You will be surprised! Keep a list only of the good things he does, says, etc. Add to this list daily. And don’t be afraid to tell him when you admire and are proud of something that he did! Remember…pray for Yahweh’s strength to help you also become the sister that he needs. And then watch what Yahweh does. πŸ™‚
      Praying Yahweh’s blessings upon you!!!
      Samantha

    Hello Everyone,

    I really struggle with willingness to allow God to work in my life and shape and mold me into the young woman He has called me to be. Peer pressure and fear of what people will say or think of me are what hold me back. Please pray for me to be willing to trust God and allow Him to do work in my life.

    From your faithful reader, Michela

      Hello Michela,

      Sometimes I struggle to let God work in my life sometimes and it does seem like its very hard to submit to him when you have a lot of things other than God on our minds. What it is really and I know its a shame to admit it, we haven’t fully made up in our minds whether we really wat to seve God with all our heart yet. So if we are professing to be a christian we should do our best to live as Christ did. I’ll be praying for your problems, and please pray for mine, and just hope that we both get better.

      Your loving “sister” in Christ
      Essence Swift
