REFLECTIONS

Truly blessed
By
Willie T. Ayers

Nothing is going to happen today that the Lord and I ca not handle together.

He said he would never leave you nor forsake you

My Son whom I love

We never know what life has in store for us, the world is full of demons, and it may come
to a surprise to some many are within our own homes. Satan works hard on the family
that chooses to serve Christ, and my home is no exception. I ‘am by no means a saint;
however I have totally given my life up to Christ. Yet my faith is tested daily or so it
seems to me. I was listening to a Shirley Caesar song the lyrics “sometime struggle is my
will” really made me think I need to do ALL things according to God’s will and not my
will.

I have four children that reside with my wife and I and daily my eldest son or the demon
within chose to test my faith oh please do not misunderstand me yes I do and have gotten
upset. And I have yelled out and called out to God “PLEASE GIVE ME STRENGTH” I
have even asked my wife to pray for me continually. Because I do not want to go
backward in my life because of this child. This child only cares about him-self shows no
remorse for things he has done: I know my mother raised us in a Christian manner.

Children now days try to use mans law against their parents. Some are even afraid of
their children, however I do not live for mans approval I live for Gods approval. I refer to
these bible passages, Proverbs 12, Proverbs 13, 2 Timothy 1:7, Revelation 3, Ephesians
6, Deuteronomy 11, and Job 5: I ‘m thankful to have God’s word his living word to guide
me. So when that still voice say be strong sometimes struggle is my will. Listen to it.
As a parent you should teach your child in according to Gods word Proverbs 22 , sadly
you have some Christian that is afraid to do this; because of our society today.

It is amazing if a child gets arrested they are subject to both physical and verbal abuse,
yet we as parents can get into trouble for the least little thing we say or do to the child we
take care of. Do not get me wrong there is a difference between abuse and discipline.
Many things that are happening today dealing with children and more has been fore told
long before our birth. Luke 12 the father shall be divided against the son, and the son
against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother;
the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother
in law.

Yes as a parent show love. And discipline and teach our children in the way of the Lord.
Yet let them develop their own character according to God’s plan for them.

What’s up with this scare about 2012?

Ok people time to get REAL, why the hype about 2012 have we not learned yet?
The other day while at church my pastor had a Great sermon on this, be not lead
astray; I wish many could have heard it. I wonder how many realize and
understand that the BIBLE is our manual for living.

The Bible clearly states: Mark 13:32 “But of that day and hour no one knows,
not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Take heed, watch
and pray; for you do not know when the time is. 34 It is like a man going to a far country,
who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and
commanded the doorkeeper to watch. 35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the
master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster,
or in the morning— 36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37And what I say to
you, I say to all: Watch!”

Think about all the predictions of years past: 1872: The beginning of the millennium.
False, so Watchtower Publications later changed the date to 1975. Wrong again!
Hal Lindsey’s False Prediction —Jesus' Return within 40 Years of 1948 after 1948, Hal
Lindsey and many fundamentalists (on the basis of the restoration of Israel and the
generation of Luke 21:29-31) predicted that Jesus would return within 40 years of 1948.
Heaven's Gate was an American UFO cult based in San Diego, California, On March 26,
1997; police discovered the bodies of 39 members of the Heaven's Gate cult, all of whom
had died by apparent suicide.

Jim Jones the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple, which is best known for the
November 18, 1978 death of more than 900 Temple members in Jonestown, Guyana
along with the deaths of nine other people at a nearby airstrip and in Georgetown. The list
is extremely long just research the internet.

And now the Mayan calendar: oh sure they may have got some predictions right: than
how come they could not foresee or predict their own destruction? Think about it. I can
not recall who said there is a sucker born every minute: Well Hollywood got a lot with
the opening of 2012. Trust in the Lord for your understanding and guidance be not lead
astray.

Truly Blessed

When I say I’m truly blessed I MEAN IT: some of you may have read my testimony all
of which is true. And I would again like to share it with you. God gave us all free will to
choose to believe or not (this is not Ripley’s) I speak of God’s word and his loving son
Jesus: Reality everyone that speaks about heaven may not be going there the bible also
warns us about false prophets:

Anyway here is my testimony: To some the things within my testimony may sound to wild to
be true, however they are true. I know that there is many worst off than I. And my prayers are
with them this is my way of spreading and sharing God’s wonders and word. My Brother in Law
in Cleveland Ohio call me a walking miracle

Have you ever notice how people doubt God and his son Jesus, I have heard in Conversation “if
it’s the Lords will or He never failed me yet.

“What are? They expecting Jesus to fail them, or not give them the desire of their heart according
to his will.

God has truly smiled on me and been good to me, I do not know what God is to others but to me
God is my all and all.

I want to give all praise and thanks God through his loving son Jesus for bringing me out of the
bowels of hell:

I was a drinker, cursed, and fought you name it crazy is not a strong enough word to use for my
sinful life style. Heck I was even a sex addict.

Daily I ask God to have mercy upon me a sinner; I do not believe that God has brought me this
far to leave me. And please be patience with me because God is still not through with me.

September 27, 1963 Cleveland Ohio I was stuck by a car traveling over 90 miles per hour I suffer
internal bleeding nearly ever bone broken or fractured in my body.

Doctors gave up on me thank God I had a praying mother my mother bowed down along with the
other prayers warriors and they prayed for me. So when the doctors give up God is always there
with you.

1965 Cleveland Ohio while playing in an abandon lot sitting in an old truck my brother threw a
match into the gas tank the truck exploded I was only blown out of my shoe with out a scratch on
my body.

Isaiah 53:5
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: The chastisement
of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

While in the military an m113 APC flip over while I was in the cargo hatch only had a small
scare on my head.

4
I was standing no more than 2 -3 feet when an m60 machine gun went off in struck a solider next
to me. The solider survived all praise be to God, but it could have been me.

While serving as a drill instructor a solider dropped a hand grenade in the trench I was able to
grab it and throw it out it explored in midair.
Lost control of my car fell into a ditch car total walked away without a scratch. (Germany)

I Lived in and out of hotels drinker daily: did not have a job went to in and out hamburger stand
to eat. I got into a conversation with an elderly gentleman he ask me if I needed a job he hired
me the next day this was November 1993

Let me stop and thank God for the wonderful wife that he blessed me with for it was her that led
me back to Christ” and before we got married she hung in there with me through all of my ups
and downs.

I have to realize the road is never easy as a Christian. Christ said all things are possible, he never
said it would be easy. My wife Deanna has been extremely supportive of me before, and now
with my disability, I’m truly blessed.

1995 In car accident on the way to work not one scratch car totaled

1999 had foot surgery for hammertoes

2000 had hand surgery due to unknown infection

February 23, 2001 had right knee surgery

March 29, 2004 diagnosed with major depression

October 26, 2004 had right knee surgery again considered 3% disabled by AIG

March 2005 suffer blackout spell while at work


March 30 2005 I’m out on disability due to black outs, dizziness and back problems, fluid on the
spine.

March 2006 informed that I would not be able to perform my job again.

I have been gong to several doctors; I had surgery on August 2, 2006.

The procedure was called: Thoracic laminectomy from T3-5 and intradural exploration Procedure
codes: 63046, 63048 x2, 69990, 95925 Diagnosis: syrinx Diagnosis code: 336.0

was recently informed 12/05/2008 I have Gout (metabolic arthritis) is a disease created by a
buildup of uric acid. In this condition, crystals of monosodium urate or uric acid are deposited on
the articular cartilage of joints, tendons and surrounding tissues.

These crystals cause inflammation and pain, both severe. If untreated, the crystals form tophi,

5
which can cause significant tissue damage. Gout results from a combination of elevated
concentrations of uric acid and overall acidity in the bloodstream. In isolation, neither elevated
uric acid (hyperuricemia) nor acidity is normally sufficient to cause gout.

Many Deaths within My Family Between 1998-2008 I lost my mother, 2 sisters 1 brother 2
cousins 2 uncles 2 aunts.

I have come to be grateful and thankful in all things. I have been able to realize the me in you;
learn to over look the faults of others so that I may over come my owns.
God has been truly good to my family and me and there is so much more to my testimony that I
would have to learn how to become a writer. I hope that you understand why I hold on to my
faith, trust and strength in GOD.
Before I close I would like to request prayer for my sister Eva Lee and myself and family.

Please pray in according to God’s will that his will be done. My sister has been diagnosed with
Lymphoma cancer in the neck and chest. She is the only living sibling I have left my other
siblings have gone home to be with Jesus along with my Mother and Father.

Your prayers will be greatly appreciated. My sister is doing well as of today’s date: Tuesday,
October 27, 2009 all praise is given unto God. Today 11/23/2009 5:47:42 PM I spoke with my
sister her cancer has returned: However I know that with God all things are possible and he is the
ULTIMATE PHYSICAN:

will. Again your prayers will be appreciated and thank you. Please feel free to contact me: and
keep me in your prayers and pray that I will grow stronger in his word and be able to spread his
love, joy, word and faith through out the land. Had Surgery on 11/04/2009 All went well God is
Good

The holiday season is upon us and I would like to take a moment to reflect: although you
do not know me or me you:

William Bradford, Governor of the Plymouth Colony made this proclamation in 1623:
"Inasmuch as the great Father has given us this year an abundant harvest of Indian corn,
wheat, beans, squashes, and garden vegetables, and has made the forests to abound with
game and the sea with fish and clams, and inasmuch as He has protected us from the
ravages of the savages, has spared us from pestilence and disease, has granted us
freedom to worship God according to the dictates of our own conscience; now, I, your
magistrate, do proclaim that all ye Pilgrims, with your wives and little ones, do gather at
ye meeting house, on ye hill, between the hours of 9 and 12 in the day time, on Thursday,
November ye 29th of the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and twenty-three,
and the third year since ye Pilgrims landed on ye Pilgrim Rock, there to listen to ye
pastor, and render thanksgiving to ye Almighty God for all His blessings."

During this season of Thanksgiving, I thought the above words would serve as a reminder
that we are to be a people with a thankful heart for the many blessings God has bestowed
upon us. Someone once said that true Thanksgiving, is first "thanks", then "giving".

6
How true that is! When we really realize all that God has done for us, especially in
sending His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth over 2,000 years ago, our hearts are filled with
thankfulness which moves us to a life of service for Him.

If we begin to believe that somehow it is "our" strength and ability that has produced our
blessings we have become deceived by our own thoughts. Just before the God's people
were going into the Promised Land, Moses gave these final words to them: Deut. 8:10-11
"When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he
has given you. [11] Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to
observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day." Moses
goes on to warn the people that often the times we are tempted to forget God the most are
the times of prosperity.

We as a nation have been blessed greatly; however we must always recognize that
without the hand of God and His precious anointing, all our labors will be in vain.
During this season of Thanksgiving, I encourage you to express your appreciation to the
Lord for His blessings upon our families, school, church and nation. Truly, He has been
and continues to be a good God! I’m truly blessed:

Did you know the power of life in death is in the tongue? So I encourage all to
SPEAK LIFE: Proverbs 18:20-23

20 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his
lips shall he be filled. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love
it shall eat the fruit thereof. 22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth
favour of the LORD. 23 The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.

An e-mail I would like to share

If my life was a credit report and I was trying to obtain salvation, based
on my score I wouldn't get it.

My history shows that I've been delinquent in praise, past due in


prayer, my worship has been in collections and I've missed a few
payments (tithes) or only paid half (you know how we put $20 in the
basket and feel like we've done God a favor).

Not to mention that my debt (sin) to income (blessings) ratio is too


high.

BUT I thank God that I was able to file bankruptcy (repentance) and it
cleared me of all of my debt (sin). Now I have a co-signer (Jesus)
whose score is FLAWLESS... Not one blemish (sin) on his report.

So now.... I QUALIFY for EVERYTHING! Most importantly I've inherited

7
eternal life and I didn't have to put one penny down.

All of my closing costs were covered when Jesus laid down His life for
me!!!! I hear that my future home has all of the upgrades too.

Hardwood floors? Please!! I'll be walking on gold! : - )

Thank You, Lord, for Your unmerited mercy, grace, and favor!!

In Christ’s Love
