About Our Ministry

Naomi’s Ministry is Christian blog designed to provide encouragement, strength and prayer to individuals who are experiencing loss, grief and recovering from traumatic experiences.

This blog site is to encourage, pray and support persons experiencing a wide range of losses that anyone of us may experience in our lifetime. The parting of a special loved one by death; divorce; the loss of job and financial security; the loss of limb(s) or debilitating illness or disease; the loss of a home or opportunity, are all "losses" and at varying degrees, may catapult you into a grieving cycle or traumatic event. However, we may not be on the road to recovery, if the right resources are not available to give us perspective on our feelings and the changes that happens in one’s life when a loss of any kind occurs. We need courage to grieve and to wait before God for the healing that comes, sometimes, one day at a time.

This is "first" a ministry of encouragement:

Know that what you are going through is normal for anyone who has experienced what you have experienced. Knowing how to go through the process, recognizing when you are grieving and seeking the help you may need will aid in the recovery process.

Know that it is okay that you are hurting. No explanations are needed. Admitting that is a first step toward your recovery. Recovery does not mean that you will forget the one or object of your loss. This also does not mean you will not forget the trauma of your victimization. Emotional healing will allow you to live authentically, freely, victoriously in spite of the event. God wants you to have His Victory through His Son, Jesus Christ who won it on the Cross of Calvary for you and I.

Know that you are not alone. Jesus Christ promised never to leave us or forsake us (The book of Hebrews, chapter 13, verse 5). This promise found in the Holy Scriptures is a promise from the Lord Himself that He is always with us, even during our darkest nights. Jesus also said, “I will not leave you comfortless” (The book of the Gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 18).

Know that “The Comforter will come” (The book of the Gospel of John, chapter 16, verse 7). The Comforter that Jesus Christ is referencing is God the Holy Spirit, (part of the triune Godhead). As you call out to God in faith during this time of tremendous emotional and sometimes physical pain, the Lord will send His Spirit to minister to your mind, body, soul and spirit. He alone can heal the hurts of loss, grief and trauma. The Holy Spirit will wipe away "your tears". Jesus "is willing" to heal you if you but ask and trust Him in the process of recovery.

Know one day you will be able to smile again. The sun will shine in your heart again. You will laugh again. You will have more good days to come. The Lord knows the thoughts and plans he has for us (Jeremiah 29:11), even if you cannot see it in the midst of this defining moment. If you will trust the Lord’s plans for you, you will come through this season, whole and able to continue on in your life’s journey.

Search out a safe and Word-filled church home or fellowship, counselor/support group. God’s Word is the answer. Read Psalms 34, 41, 42, 91, 103, 107, 112, 119, 121, 123, 140, 145. Depending on our needs, we may also need some assistance beyond what a blog, book or cards offer. Professional help is available. Pray and ask the Lord to direct you to a place of healing and confidentiality. Check out the resources at your church or another Christ-centered congregation. Please do not grieve alone.

The time for recovery is NOW. Just like you would go to the hospital’s emergency room if you were physically in need of medical treatment, so during high levels of emotional crisis, you should not wait to seek help or assistance. DON’T WAIT TO GET HELP. This is the time to admit that you are hurting and it is okay.

Keep talking to God the Father, the Father of ALL Comfort. He knows your grief and the journey ahead. Also believe that He loves you even when you are sad. This ministry is reaching out to you with Jesus' love. We are praying for your total healing and recovery.

If you are interested in receiving prayer, please write me at: jesusislord14@outlook.com. Please do not request money - request prayer.

God loves you. We are praying you will feel His love and comfort every time you reach out to read the messages.

Jesus THE SON OF GOD is Lord!

In the name of Jesus we have the victory

It's been a few months since I had he opportunity to take time to write about grief here at Naomi's ministry. For several months, I have been going through my own private grief, some "good grief" that was a new beginning almost a year ago and then...some losses that were not so good. I tell you by the confidence of the Living God that lives in me, we must stand against the enemy no matter what life brings through the power of The Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ, God's Son. Wickedness is increasing and if we shall stand, we shall stand by Christ alone and by nothing else. I am glad that I am saved, being sanctified and filled with God's Holy Spirit. With Christ, "I can do all things" (Philippians 4:18, The Holy Bible).

The year has been a rough one. I believe we must pray more, fast more and watch as Jesus commanded. A year ago I went to a funeral; this past week or so a family member passed. All throughout the year, there were deaths of friends, friend's family member and even persons who are in the media who I kinda "grew up with" that left this world and passed into eternity. What shall we say to these things? "If God is for us, who can be against us". No matter what, God is still good and He is still on the THRONE OF HEAVEN. "NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER AND I CONDEMN EVERY TONGUE RAISED AGAINST ME".

I am grieving, but I am also in touch with the healer. In Jesus' name we can and shall have total victory. I know God wants me to pursue Him more; pray more, listen to His voice and spend time reading His precious word which is our life. Jesus is the Bread of Life...He is also The Good Shepherd. If you believe in Him as I do, we shall have eternal life. He promised and He ALWAYS tells the truth.

In Jesus name, no matter the losses on this side, we have the victory.

I want to say a special prayer over this website, my life and yours. Let's pray:

Father God, In Jesus name...I praise You, thank You and love You with all of my heart, mind and soul. I thank you for Your Son, Jesus...Oh yes, He died at Calvary on the cross, but He rose again and now I have eternal life through His atoning blood alone. Thank you for Your presence by The Holy Spirit who lives in me, empowers me and comforts me. Father, You alone are the Great Comforter. I ask you Lord right now in Jesus name to save everyone who reads this blog. Save them and deliver them from the wicked one, our enemy .Cast the enemy's lies out. Stomp on His head Jesus by Your power. Lord I ask that persons reading this blog would get to know you and to learn that You will comfort their hearts through their grief. Lord...if there is anyone who is not saved, and all other persons who have evil designs against me and this blog and the message of Jesus Christ, please deal with them right now in Jesus name. Lord, help them to see themselves and to know that if they don't get right with you and receive Jesus in their hearts and accept Jesus as the only way to You Father, they will never see heaven's gates, but will be eternally lost. Jesus, You made the ultimate sacrifice when You gave Your life for our sins - You took my place so I don't have to die in my sins. THANK YOU JESUS and THANK YOU FATHER FOR YOUR MAGNIFICENT LOVE FOR ME. YOU  LOVE ME AND YOU LOVE US. I DECLARE IT BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT YOUR WORD SAYS - YOU ARE THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER OF MY FAITH.

Keep us in your care Father and Jesus be my Lord and My Savior and my God....In Your name..the only name by which anyone can come to God and have eternal life..the name of JESUS REIGNS.
