God is Good, God is Love
God is real and He is good. He is Love, and He loves you - whoever is reading this. The Bible (God's written Word) tells that God SO LOVED the people of this world that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus) to come to earth, live, and die for our sins and righteousness (right standing with God.) His cross purchased salvation is free to anyone who wants to be set free from sin and the death that it brings. If you have not accepted God's offer of love and His invitation in His family, here is a simple prayer you can pray right where you are. Please pray out loud so that you can hear it, the angels in heaven can hear and the devil can hear you.

"Lord Jesus, I need You in my life. I believe that You are the Son of God and that You died on the cross for me - even if I was the only person in the world. Please forgive me for my sins and create a new, clean heart in me. I thank You bring life my spirit within me (the real me) so that I can hear Your voice through the Holy Spirit whom You sent to me today when I accepted Jesus as my Savior and Lord. I commit myself to Your ways and to Your Word. I want to serve You all the days of my life and will read your Word (the Bible) to learn not only how to live on this earth but also to learn what You have stored up for me for my good. I praise you, my Father God and thank you, Jesus, for saving me. Amen

If you have prayed this prayer, please get into the Bible and read what your new manual for living has to say to you. If you are not familiar with the Bible, please start with the New Testament, especially the book of John, often referred to as the "Love" book.

God bless you.

To renew membership or not
I may or may not renew my membership here on writing.com I have 7 days to decide. I need to hear from God on the subject. I've been deleting a lot of worthless trash and words that go against the Word of God which I wrote in a bad time. God has forgiven me, but I don't want that stuff on here for others to read and take the truth - which they are not. Unless it lines up with the Holy Bible - God's Word - it's not worth reading and potentially dangerous to the soul who reads it - even me. Pure thoughts, things that are lovely - peace and life - those are the things to read about and think about. Purging my mind from evil/bad/past thoughts and ways of thinking is not quite as easy as deleting items, but I must say even deleting items is not easy on the fingers and mind. When I see a taste of what I wrote in days gone by, I am grieved. Why, oh, why did I allow the devil to take me down the dark death path when I knew that God was the one true God and the only one who has a good plan for my life. So many days, months, even years wasted. Thank God for the gift of repentence and HIS forgiveness through the blood of Jesus. So, please, don't go back further in my blog/journal than the end of 2014. I pray that my future entries if there will be any will be full of God's love, light and peace. God bless y'all on writing.com and may you all have your minds enlightened to the truth that Jesus is the only way to the one true God.

Looking at 2015
Greetings my WDC friends. The new year is fast approaching, and I have rededicated myself to serving God in this new year of 2015. I pray I will be faithful in all that He calls me to and say. I need Him every day to direct me, correct, and love me.

One piece of direction I need is whether or not to stay as a full member on this writing site. As many of you, I am basically no longer writing. I have no time nor inclination to do reviews or participate in activities of the site. It is simply not the season in my life for such things.

I have until the end of January to make the decision. I need to hear from God in this regard before I make any kind of move. I also need His word on what to do with my poetry and other writings. So many were given to me by Him. I ant them used to help people if that is His will.

Please pray for me - that I will hear and do as my Father directs. I wish all of you a God filled new year in 2015. That's the best "wish" I could have for anyone, including myself.

Christmas Letter 2014

December 2014

Dear Family and Friends,

As many of you know, my tradition for some years has been to prepare and send a Christmas letter recapping the past year’s events. I had not thought about writing one this year until just this week when I came to me that the God’s gift to us of Jesus takes precedence over everything else at this time of year. It would serve me well to also remind myself of how God has brought me through this year and testify of His goodness.

January through March 17 remain a blur in my memory except to remember that both Glenn and I were in ill health and not seeking as we should the assistance of our Creator and God. We had forgotten our first love and had gotten into a bad place spiritually. It would follow that the physical would not improve when the spiritual condition of our hearts was not well.

On March 17, 2014, Glenn was taken to the hospital by ambulance at his insistence – something he would never have done before. His last words to me were words of distress, “Where are they? Why aren’t they here?” (meaning the ambulance).

Earlier that morning he said to me, “I paid the electric bills. At least, you won’t have that to worry about.” I can see now this was more than just a statement; it was a prophecy. Glenn would not be around to take care of anything after that morning. He was always talking about and looking forward to “graduation” – meaning going to heaven. I truly believe, not only was he ready for heaven – having accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior years ago; he wanted to go and leave this world behind. On the morning of March 27, Glenn got graduation.

With God’s help, I have accepted my new role as “widow” of Glenn W. Crump. It was not a role I’d thought I ever be in.

Through God’s specific direction, I began attending church at Bethel Assembly of God in May. I got back on the path I needed to be on seeking God and diligently reading and studying His Word daily.

I began living alone for the very first time in my life. I know by His Word that God is with me, but it is hard without having Glenn here or other people.





Page two

Glenn made no financial provision for me, but even though I did not get the full amount for the scrap that got hauled nor the true value of the machines and other things that were sold and some things got stolen; God made sure I got enough to pay off the property.

God promises to supply all of my needs. He has never failed me and never will. He’s put me in this place and brought me through this far. I am determined in my heart He will not stop now. He knows my needs before I even ask, and He also promises to give me the desires of my heart. Believe me, He has my list.

Yes, I am still living in the same place in Texas, with my 6 dogs, 9 cats, 40 chickens, and 2 ring necked doves. I believe that this is where God wants me to live and that He will provide for me here. He is my Good Shepherd and I shall not want for any good thing. I hear His voice and no other voice will I follow. John 10 has become a bedrock scripture for me in addition to Psalm 91 and Psalm 23. I still battle the loneliness of living and being alone so much, but I know God is here always even when I do not feel His presence.

God has blessed me with health and weight loss. Although I still await His promised manifestation of healing from various ailments, I am in the best health than I have been in years. Getting up each morning is not an option – the animals must be taken care of. I want to rejoice in each day that God has made. I am not allowed to be sick and for this I praise my God. I walk a lot – from house to dog kennel, to chicken coop – back to dog kennel and then back into house (to let out dogs) and then to Glenn’s shop to feed Bootsie. And then return to the house. This I do each and every day – two trips – morning and evening. I could take my vehicle or my “little tractor,” but it is so much easier to walk. Praise God he enables me to do whatever I need to do,

I owe my Lord and Savior praise and glory for all He has done for me. He sustains me every day. He has a plan for my life, and I know it is good because our God is only good and He loves me. I cannot go by sight but walk in faith and love every day of my life.

God has blessed me greatly by providing for my spiritual food through my Pastor, Robert Nixon. God has added to my “spiritual diet” the teachings of Keith Moore, Kenneth Copeland, and Jesse Duplantis. I am so grateful God brought these wonderful teachers into my life. Brother Copeland has been there for me for many years, always standing faithful and true in the Word.

I am blessed to go to church on Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening at Bethel. Then I get to “go” to church twice more when I watch the rebroadcast of the Sunday service at Brother Moore’s church. I often watch their Friday service live as well. Add in the downloads of teaching I get free from Brother Moore and the daily broadcast by Brother Copeland, and my own Bible reading and devotionals; I am being well fed. But I’ve found the more of the Word I get, the more I want.





Page three

Since October, I have been blessed to be allowed to volunteer at the Devine Food Pantry. Devine is the town where my church is and is just down the road. My Pastor suggested I start volunteering, and it is evolving into a true ministry. I know there are many things coming in the future to add to this. I now go to the Food Pantry twice a week – Tuesday and Thursdays from about 9:00 until 1:00. I also do work at home on the computer. I’ve turned Glenn’s old office with his computer into my “Food Pantry” office. It’s a blessing to use it for God’s glory.

Christmas is our time to celebrate Jesus’ birth. He came to earth to live as a man to show us how to live and to show us what God is like. Then he willingly gave His life on the cross to provide us with full salvation if we will accept it. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God, confess your sins, and you will be saved. His full salvation can be yours: health, prosperity, protection, a home in heaven after this life and many other blessings. Jesus said He came to give us life and that life abundantly.

We must believe and walk in faith. God gives us a choice to choose life with Him or death. He wants us to choose life so He can bless us. God loves us so much, as much as He does Jesus. Jesus said so in John 17.

If you haven’t asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, please do so and begin living for God. Hell was not meant for people but for the devil, but we have to choose whom we will serve. There’s no in between; it’s either God or the devil. It’s either life-blessing or death-the curse. It is not God’s desire that any should perish. It’s up to each person where he or she will spend eternity.

Make this the most joyous Christmas season ever and re-dedicate or begin a new life with Jesus as your Lord and Savior and God has your loving, blessing Father. Yes, the Creator of the universe wants to be your Father.

I praise His name that I had Godly parents who made sure I heard the truth at a young age. I strayed several times, but always believed. Now, I know that God is the only life there is. I want to serve Him with my whole heart for the rest of my life. I love Him with all my heart, mind, and soul. I never want to be away from Him.

God bless you and may you know His grace and peace at this blessed season.

Love,

Karen Crump
Child and servant of Almighty God and His Son Jesus and filled with His Holy Spirit.

One Thing is Needed
One thing is needed, Jesus said. And that one thing is to hear from Him and do that one thing - and think on that one thing which is in the middle of His will. My one thing right now is: God loves me and supplies all of my needs. I shut out all thinking that does not line with this Word in my life.

Fight the Good Fight of Faith
I walk by faith in the Word of God and not by sight. I fight the good fight of faith and war not after the flesh. I know my God will supply all of my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I know that by Jesus stripes I am healed. I know my future is secure in my God - He is my refuge and fortress. I will not fear.

Salvation Messge
There is only ONE way to God - through Jesus, the Son of God. He came to earth and showed us how to live. Then he died a horrible cruel death on the cross taking all of our sins, sicknesses, diseases, poverty, and lack. He descended into hell and defeated the devil, rose again by God Almighty's power and reigns in heaven now as every Christian's high priest and intercessor.

The Bible clearly states that Jesus is THE Truth, the way, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Jesus.

For God so loved the world (people) that he gave his only son that whosoever believeth on Him would be saved. Saved from what, you ask? Hell, death, sickness, sin, poverty and lack.

If you will confess your sins and ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, He will change your life from the inside out. Then begin to read your Bible to learn all that belongs to you as a born again Child of God and take those things by faith.

The Bible also says that Jesus will return and many believers, including me, believe that this will be soon, perhaps in my lifetime. So, I am reaching out to those I know to tell them the good news of the gospel of Christ and how God's heart and mine yearns that each of you be saved.

I would be blessed to pray for you or with you.

Thanks Be to God at All Times
Thanks be to God who gives me the victory. Thanks be to God who supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Thanks be to God who is my rock, refuge, strength. Thanks be to God by whose grace I have all sufficiency in all things and a superabundance so that I can give to others in need. Thanks be to God for all His many blessings. Look at the creation and see our marvelous God in the beauty of the earth.

Thanks be to God for His agape love towards me and all mankind. His heart's desire is that all men would be saved through His Son Jesus. Praise Him at all times and in all things. Glory to God in the highest!

THANKS BE TO GOD WHO GIVES ME THE VICTORY
Yesterday, I gave False Evidence Appearing Real. I acted in fear that the devil brought to my mind and heart. I want to set things RIGHT by the Word of God - the only REAL TRUTH.

I am NEVER alone. God my Father is always with me as is Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We are a victorious group. The blood of Jesus has cleansed me from my past mistakes. I have no hit or miss record. He has erased it all.

I refuse to fear. Although it may come, I will not let it in. I will RESIST. I REFUSE TO FEAR. I stand upon God's Word that says I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

God loves me as much as He does Jesus. Jesus said so, so that settles it. I WILL RELAX AND REST IN HIS LOVE.

My future is totally secure in my Father God and my confession of faith is that I always do those things that please him because I walk in faith and faith pleases God. God supplies all of my needs according to HIS riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

I live in love, in the rest of God, full of peace, joy and light.

I receive the promises of God and look not at things that are seen but at what the Lord My God has promised. I have heaven here on earth in the rest and provision of my Father God.

If you have not done so, I pray you join me through the blood of Jesus who died and rose again for our salvation. God loves you and so do I.
