#Trust30 …My Personal Message for A Million


To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius.Ralph Waldo Emerson

Prompt Day # 9

What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say?

(Author: Eric Handler)


One Million people…

If 1,000,000 would actually listen to little ‘ole me, wouldn’t that be amazing.

It feels as if there are a million things, causes, desires burning in this spirit. What is the personal message I would say to a dying world. To a society that has degraded into a place where children are the adults and adults are so self-indulgent that they no longer care for their progeny enough to guide them?

What is the message that is so necessary in a world that no longer has a sense of pride or real, moral self-worth?


I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.

 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.                         ~ Ephesians 1:16-23

We were made for more, in the image of a benevolent Creator; a loving Father who has dreams and plans for his billions and billions of children!

If I could tell a million souls that they were CREATED for something more than they could fathom…and they were to believe and tell one person each…ad infinitum; we could right an upside down world.

Quoted from Lysa TerKeurst’s book Made to Crave; the concept of YOU WERE MADE FOR MORE drove itself home true in my spirit.

We, as a moral and virtuous faction of an upside down world, must tell them. We must live as if we were made to be victorious in all we do…it was the intent of our Creator…

 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
      you formed me in my mother’s womb.
   I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
      Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
      I worship in adoration—what a creation!
   You know me inside and out,
      you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
      how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
   Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
      all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
   The days of my life all prepared
      before I’d even lived one day. ~ Psalm 139:13-15

If you happen to be one of the million who might read this…If you are feeling that gap that craves things that you feel you will never have…that you are not WORTH.

If someone you love deeply made you feel, or told you, or did something that convinced you that you are worthless…

Indulge this mother’s spirit a moment…

I was once told “God does not make junk!”

You were worth the price that was paid for you on the cross…Someone bled for you…Someone loves you so very much that He went to a terrible death to pay the bill for your sins…sins you would not commit for some 2000 + years!

Read John 3:16…Oh, just read the whole of John 3, and begin to see yourself as Worthy.

Worthy of Love…Respect…a job…an education…a meal.

I am here to tell you that …

God loves you so much,  right where you are, and He loves you too much to leave you there!

I read this quote today…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. -Marianne Williamson

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
