My husband went on a mountain lion hunt a few years ago and this is what they got. It reminds me of the story of David in 1 Samuel when he wanted to go after Goliath. David said, "The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "Go, and the Lord be with you!"

I feel like I'm going after a lion and a bear this time of year trying to get everything in order for taxes to be filed.

Life is full of battles to fight and like David, we have to be courageous and GO. And the Lord is always with us.... not to deliver us from the battle......but to deliver what we are fighting against into OUR hands.

I pray each of you GO in the name of the Lord to your battles and that you prevail over them just as David did.

And in a few days, I'll be holding up Goliath's head once again when our taxes are finished.


  1. Congrats to your husband on his catch! I need to be getting things together for taxes too. Hope yours goes well!

  2. I love that , Sandra. Wow...sometimes Goliath just seems to be getting taller and taller and taller, but never greater than our God! How wonderful it is to remember that. I love the story of David, because his small form was a non-issue in his own eyes when he heard of God's enemy Goliath. Goal 1: take him out!

    Sandra, the Lord be with you in this time, this season of taxes. You can truly do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

  3. Hi friend, peace...

    Your blog very interesting.
    But I have some questions for you:

    First, why were you believe that Jesus is your God?

    Second, what do you response? If you know that Jesus is created by Constantine (the Roman Emperor at 325 AC) and the leaders of Christians in Nicea Convention on 325 AC (After Christ).

    Third, how about this informations? (1) Deuteronomy 6:4 , “Hear O Israel Yahweh our God is the one, the only Yahweh.” (2) Paul wrote that “God is only one,” in Galatians 3:20 . (3) "I am Yahweh your God . . . You shall have no gods except me,” Exodus 20: 2,3.

    Fourth, how about this informations? (1) Nowhere in the Bible is the day of worship changed from Saturday to Sunday. This change was not made by the Almighty, but by the Roman Church; (2) The name “Jesus” is derived from the Greek name “Ieasus,” which actually means “son of Zeus.” Sadly, when people call upon the name of Jesus they are actually speaking of Greek mythology.

    Fifth, how about this informations? It was Roman Emperor Constantine who mandated Christianity to be the universal religion. Before he did this though, he made huge changes in the faith. Constantine gave several edicts that would separate the church from Biblical Judaism. These decrees mandated ancient pagan practices, like Christmas, Communion, Easter, and Sun day worship, as “Christian.”

    Sixth, how about this informations? Christianity was corrupted by Paganism. The pure Deism of the first Christians was changed, by the Church of Rome, into the incomprehensible dogma of the trinity. Many of the pagan tenets, invented by the Egyptians and idealized by Plato, were retained as being worthy of belief.

    Seventh, how about this informations? There are many similarities between the pagan god of Christ and the Christian version of Jesus. For example, Greek mythology tells of Christ bring born to the virgin Isis on December 25.

    Seventh, how about this informations? The word “trinity” cannot be found in the Bible. It wasn’t formally a part of church doctrine until the 4th century, when the Church first began teaching god as being in three separate persons.

    Thanks for you answer.
    I hope we can be friend, although we have different perspective.

  7. What a catch! I hope your taxes go well and are done soon.

  8. Wow, Sandra! I never saw this! What a picture. I hate to even think about the taxes, but you are right, it's that time again.
