Faith Exercised

written by ~ Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Faith is like a muscle, it must be exercised to grow!  The body’s Vital Organs and Skeletal System are protected by muscles.  But, by not taking action and failing to exercise leaves one in a weakened condition, rendered helpless and vulnerable to accident & disease.

The same applies to your Faith! Yes the Word says…”Faith as small as a Mustard seed”, but remember… When that Faith is NOT exercised it leaves you exposed in a weakened condition, defenseless and susceptible to the attacks of the enemy!

So be aware…”The enemy prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour”!  As the devil stalks, he is looking for “the weak in Faith”!  The Word says…”Resist the enemy & HE shall flee”, but without exercised faith, you are in a weakened condition and no match for the enemy!

Resistance is found through exercised Faith in Jesus Christ.  Faith is exercised on a daily basis and strengthened through “Prayer, Worship & The Word”.  You see, the Lord desires that you really know HIM!  Listen—HE is calling…“Draw near to ME and I will draw nearer to you.”   And as you yield to the beckoning of HIS still small voice…tarry there.  And there in HIS presence ‘talk to HIM and Listen’…As you will begin experiencing HIS ever abiding love, your Faith will soar to new heights!

An example of this kind of faith is Abraham…He spent time with the Lord.  He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” (Romans 4:19-22)

The Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen your (faith) and protect you from the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)  Just as Abraham, may you come to recognize the significance of exercising your faith…by spending time at His feet!  For it is there our faith is strengthened and we are equipped for the battle!  Keep in mind…The Lord does not force Himself upon anyone…it is a free choice.  As for me… “Christ” has become an absolute necessity in my life!!

Pray, Wait, Trust…”Dear Lord, Help me to exercise the Faith that I have been given so that I will grow stronger each day.”  

Be blessed by this beautiful song….

Facing the Storm

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24)  True faith has to be tested and refined as silver & gold…In the midst of a howling sea of sorrow, pain, loneliness & despair, powerful waves well up to overtake me! In a distance I hear a voice calling my name!

I struggle in the swift currents to take a hold of a hand reaching out for mine! As it seems I’m going under for one last time, Suddenly I feel a hand firmly grasping hold of my arm, lifting me out of the angry sea and drawing me up to new heights. With the touch of His hand my soul senses a powerful love flowing, as my feet are set on a solid rock! This magnificent love enables me to stand unwavering on a mountain of Faith!

As I stand gazing beyond my present stormy sea, my joy is restored, my strength is renewed and the determination to overcome wells up within my soul! For Christ alone is my Salvation, My Hope of Eternity!

And Once again I realize God has allowed my faith to be tested & refined! And once again I find HE is so very faithful!! All Glory to His Name!  Listen to this beautiful song…..

broken road

Bless the Broken Road

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Yes, the road I have traveled in life has been filled with potholes, but each hardship has made me who I am today! Oh, I may look a little bruised and battered and I may even be facing more hardships in life, but yet I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to finish the work before me that the Lord has called me to do!

I am committed to serving the Lord at whatever cost. I look to the Spirit of the Lord to work in me and through me, putting absolutely no confidence in my tattered flesh! You see…God is in charge of my life through the Holy Spirit that dwells within me. I am no longer a hostage to changing circumstances, riding the ups and downs of emotions….for The jOy of the Lord is my strength of my Life!!  I have found as I have yielded to the ways of the Lord, I am more alert to the needs of others around me and love to minister to those who are bruised and hurting. I absolutely refuse to be consumed by my own problems, but seek the Lord in how to share His love and encouraging words with others. Oh yes, I must still deal with my own personal trials and ordeals in my daily life, but I solely rely upon a Holy God, for in Him I have found Freedom, Liberty, and a new devotion to continue His work while on earth!  Even in the midst of brokenness, I have a deep compelling desire to walk in a greater intimacy with Christ!  Yes see, The Lord has faithfully given me a gift of His strength for my weakness, His Hope, for my despair, and brings relief with His healing hand.   He heals my broken heart and binds up my wounds. His sweet presence is ever so near.

Therefore, I MUST finish the race, reflect the Love of Christ and share the powerful life changing Truth of God’s Saving Grace!! Oh God, Bless this Broken Road! ~ San, Healing Rain to the Nations

…However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.. Acts 20:24

His Grace is Sufficient

~Healing Rain to the Nations

Whatever situation I may be facing today, I know in my heart that God’s GRACE is sufficient! In all my weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. I have learned to rely upon the Lord…”For when I am weak, HE is strong”. It’s in Christ I find my Hope, my strength and the Grace to face another day.

So when your world is crumbling apart and you just can’t go on, remember…God’s Word says…

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  (2 Corin 12:9)

Almighty God is the only one that can satisfy a weary soul!  Look to Jesus for He is so very faithful and True!!  HE sees you. HE knows you. HE loves you!!!

May you be blessed by this beautiful song….


His Grace Is Sufficient For Me


God’s Point of View

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

One of the most awesome moments was when I was flying into Portland on a beautiful clear, sunny day. The Pilot announced that it was the clearest he has ever flown. All along the flight He proceeded to point out snow covered mountain’s peaks to the north and to the south. Wow, so amazing! This began to trigger my brain to thinking of how God view’s my own life….

Did you know God has an omniscient, omnipotent view of our lives as believers! Nothing is hidden, He sees all, He knows all! He is aware of every detail of our lives from birth (even before we were conceived) until death! Since God knows every detail of our past, our present and our future so very well, surely I should rely upon Him in every event in my life! Surely without a doubt I can fully trust Him with every moment of my life.

God is an all-seeing, all-knowing God and we can rely upon His strength and wisdom as we face life’s challenges and obstacles! Wow, that means we are not limited by our own strength and wisdom…Thank you Lord!! The Lord has given us the scriptures to help us in making wise decisions from His viewpoint. When we are hemmed in by our circumstances and can’t see from all the fog, we can seek God prayerfully and regularly spend time in His Word which will enables us to break thorough the barriers of life with His insight!!

So rejoice my Friend…even tho sometimes it may feel you are all alone….God knows every detail of your life, He cares and He Loves you with an everlasting Love!! What may seem like an ordinary event or even a disaster in your life…rest assured, God will use all the good and not so good for His Divine Purpose! Trust Him, He will make something beautiful out of your life!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Ice Skating on the Pond

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

On this chilly morning I set bundled in a blanket watching the flames dance in the fireplace. My mind begin’s to drift through the pages of yesteryear’s.…

I can just hear my sweet Daddy’s voice of excitement waking me up for School…”Sis, it won’t be long till the ice on the pond is thick enough to Skate!”

As snowflakes began to fill the air, us kids would keep a watchful eye on the ole thermometer hangin’ on the front porch. When temps began dropping towards “0″, and winds got bitter cold, we knew it wouldn’t be long. Daddy would never let us kids on the pond until the ice was a certain thickness. Every morning Dad had to chop a waterhole for the cows, therefore he kept close watch on the thickness of the ice. Then came the moment we had been waiting for… the big “OK, Let’s Skate”!!

Sometimes Mom and Dad and even our old dog would join us kids!  We had no skates, but I had the next best thing…a pair of old black and white Saddle Oxford’s.  Them leather sole’s were mighty slick! 

As the giggles rang throughout the Holler, the ole Cows gathered around in curiosity!  Oh what plain simple fun we had together there on that ole Pond.  For those moments in time, worries and concerns were left at the pond-bank as the air was filled with jOy and laughter and oh yes, even a few snowball’s!!

We skated till our fingers and toes we’re frozen numb. Then we headed to the old farmhouse where Momma’s steaming hot chocolate and a warm fire was awaiting us. Oh yes, I remember how bad the frozen fingers and toes hurt as they began to warm up! But oh…it was so worth it!! I will forever cherish my Family and all the sweet memories of the simple-life, growing up in the Holler!!

Jesus was the center of our Family life.  We depended upon the Lord for everything.  Below is a Favorite song our Family loved to sing together.  Come on and Lift you voice and rejOice!….Enjoy this beautiful old Gospel Song that was very much a part of my wonderful life in the Holler!   Be blessed!  ~San, Healing Rain to the Nations

HRN Psalm 65.8

Experiencing God

written by: San, Healing Rain to the Nations

What magnificent beauty our God has created for us to enjoy!!! Pause for just a moment….See the beautiful formation of the clouds as they drift over the jagged Coastal shoreline. See the glistening of sun-rays dancing across the white capped waves. Feel the foaming waves of cool water washing over your feet, as treasures of the deep are washed ashore. Feel the sand between your toes & a cool gentle breeze blowing through your hair! Now listen closely…hear the roaring of the waves & the cry of Seagulls!! You have just experienced HIM!! The whole earth is filled with HIS Magnificent GLORY & Beauty!!

 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy. (Psalm 65:8)

Just outside your door awaits a world of beauty. Take a leisurely walk and enjoy the morning sunshine or maybe a moonlight stroll in the evening dew. Take note of what you see, hear and feel as God begins revealing Himself through nature. Clear your mind and set your thoughts toward Heaven! Relax, fill your heart with song as you rest in His presence. Take time to experience the JOY & the WONDER of knowing HIM!!

Depending upon where you are at in this big beautiful world…”Good Day/Good Night my Friends”!

Arise Victorious Warrior

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Yes, Life is full of hard knocks! With each hard blow, the devil seeks to weaken my faith and tries to destroy my soul. But I boldly stand my ground for I have made the choice to Love the Lord my God with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind and with all my strength, and never wavering in my Faith! For in Christ alone I place my trust! Therefore, In all my weakness and human limitations, I know beyond a doubt I have the power of my Unlimited GOD who sustains me!

You can bet the ole enemy will continue to seek, with a purpose to kill and destroy, but Christ has come to give Life Abundant! It’s through a personal relationship with Christ Jesus that I have found that conquering power over the enemy! YOU SEE….I live my life for Jesus! For the Lord is My Refuge and My Fortress, My God, in whom I trust. He is Faithful and True to His Word, A Victorious Warrior…Lord of everything! He is My Rock, My shelter, My very Hope, Blessed Redeemer who reigns upon the Throne!! Only Jesus can satisfy the very longing and thirst in my soul! He is My Supreme Sacrifice who gave His life that I might live and I find no greater Love!! He is the Living Water that rains down life upon me and refreshes me with abundant life!! I know who I am in Christ! Therefore I will not bend nor bow to the wilds of the enemy!

For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”, (Deut 20:4) Giving us victory over our enemies, putting our adversaries to shame. (psalm 44:7) For everyone born of God overcomes the world. FAITH is the victory that has overcome the world. (1 John 5:4)

I arise as a Victorious Warrior…armed and dressed for Battle according to Ephesians 6:10-18… “The Armor of God” (see below) Thanks be to God! He gives us the Victory through our Lord Jesus Christ…..MY KING…The Source of Living Water…I will Trust in YOU!!! (1 Corinthians 15:57)

The Armor of God

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

“Jesus”…The Music of My Soul

written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations

Music has always been a big part of my life. When I was a little girl I sang in the kids choir at Church. When at home I played church,,,I lined up my dollies on the couch and would sing and preach to them. Over the years I sung in Church Choirs and ministered with numerous Gospel Music Groups. Even now I greatly enjOy gathering around the ole piano with Friends and singing!!

When I’m doing housework, cooking, gardening or shopping, I am always humming and singing a song. Most of the time I’m not even aware of it till it’s brought to my attention when someone approaches and tells me they are enjoying my song!

You see…Jesus has placed so much jOy in my soul I just can’t contain it!!

The Lord is my Strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with jOy. I burst out in songs of Thanksgiving.

(Psalm 26:7)

The Lord is my Helper, my Sustainer, my Strength and Protector. the Lifter of my Head and so much more!! Through life’s trial’s and challenges I’ve learned to trust my Lord with all my heart!!  So, when I think of Jesus and what He means to me, my ole heart overflows with so much jOy that I burst out in a hApPy little tune of Praise….anywhere, anytime!  “Jesus” truly is the music of my soul and the reason my ole heart RejOices!!

So no matter where you are or what you’re doing, come on and strike up a little tune…”SiNg for Jesus”!!

This is just one of my favorites…EnjOy!!  ~San
