I’m going to be honest with you guys, this is a post I was not so sure I would want to write. With the atmosphere we are in I have gotten to the point where… More
I announced a week ago I will be doing lives once a month for honest raw discussions. The first live will be this Sunday the details are in the video! Hope to see you there but you can always rewatch if you are subscribed!
This video took A LOT of courage and the Lord gave me the strength to do it. It’s never easy challenging the lies of religion especially when they are thousands of years old. But I believe that 2020 will result in a massive breaking of chains for people every where around the world! I want to do my part in helping that come to pass. And so here I am, Lord here I am! In this videos I am defining the difference between the Hebrew word submission and the Greek word submission found in Ephesians 5:22. Through Jesus Christ woman are free from the curse of the law that did not start with the law of Moses but in the garden after the fall of man. Take your time to read the scriptures I show and speak of. Take your time in prayer and alow the Lord to speak to you through these truths. Keep reading on wherever the spirit leads you in your study times and I hope you were blessed. I love you ladies.
“Read the words, pray and allow God to pour himself into all the vessels you’ve laid out before him.”-Lisa Bevere “Lioness Arising”
This year I started new journeys with so much uncertainty. I can imagine what the widow thought when Elijah told her to go and collect all the jars she could get from her neighbors. She must have thought to herself “Doesn’t make sense but okay.” That’s how I felt when I set off to create my You Tube channel and began making changes to my photography business . I did not understand the whys and I was only told to do with no further instruction.
Throughout the process, revelations came with each obedient act. And in me the purpose of God began expand and create in ways I never knew was on the inside of me. And now the Lord has been calling me to pour my time into these vessels so He may provide for me in powerful ways.
But I miss My Father’s Symphony every moment I am away from it. But I am learning to let God fill the vessels He wants to fill and not hinder the spirit. I have a work to complete and only the Holy Spirit can help me do that. Only He knows the vessels that need to be poured into greatly in this season, so that I can receive all that He has for me.
I just want you to know that when I am away it is because of the Lord leading me away. But I will always come back when He leads me back. I will be sharing more often my videos here so you can come on the journey with me. And in everything may I inspire you to follow God with your full heart wherever He leads you. Rather that be in the form of a video or a written post, that is always my aim.
I am hoping to take some time to rest before the new year is here, sitting before the Lord and allowing Him to fill me up. So that everything I do is for His glory and His praise. May God bless you in this holiday season and I pray that the new year brings you closer to Him with everything you do.
I am excited to share my first ever ministry video for Living Woman+ The Real On Womanhood. It took a lot of courage to study these coming subjects and challenge modern Christian doctrine in order to bring us back to original will of God for womanhood. I hope it inspires you to seek the truth in your own walk with the Lord and as always never take my word for it! Get out your Bible, be led by the Holy Spirit and do your research! May God bless you!
My brother Stu at “Something to Stu Over” nominated me for this award. It’s not the first time he has done this and I am full of gratitude that he continues to encourage me and root for me! May God continue to bless you brother as you continue to be a blessing for others!
“You have been chosen for this recognition because of the encouragement and inspiration you bring to your readers.“
The way this works:
Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog.
Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them.
List five things about yourself.
Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because is the number that signifies grace.
5 things about Janet
My pen name is J.S. Giles but my real name is actually Johnnatta. People call me Janet for short. My whole life I have had many nicknames because it’s hard to read and pronounce my real name at first 🙂
I grew up in two different cultures and so I talk two different ways. If you ever watch my videos you will notice that!
I have struggled with insomnia since I was a little but through the Lord I am fighting to over come it.
I really really love pretty things. Clothes, shoes, jewelry you name it! But I hate shopping so I have very little of all of those things. Doesn’t make sense I know!
1. Who in your life is your biggest encourager?
My husband hands down. Apart from the Lord he is my best friend. He has been my constant helper and leader.
2. How do you see yourself as being an encouragement to others?
I guess I just try to stay close to the Lord, do His will and share the hope of Christ. If I am a blessing to someone that blesses me.
3. When was the last time someone gave you words of encouragement?
Well Stu just did! But my husband and I have been painting the outside of the house for over a week and it’s been exhausting! I started to head in the house and he said “Good job babe!” It’s the little things, the little things!
4. When you are down, what encourages you to get back up and keep pressing on?
A lot of prayer. I still struggle with loving and believing in myself and so I know when I am getting close to a pit of despair I need to go pray. I give whatever is on my mind and heart over to God and ask for His peace. I ask that He will remind me of what He says and to never leave me. Without Him I can do nothing and I will not do one thing apart for Him.
5. Who was your greatest encourager when you first accepted Christ?
It is sad to say but when I accepted Christ no one knew about it. I walked my faith journey alone with the Lord from the time I was 7 until I was 21. Then I met my husband and he was the first person I ever met that loved the Lord like I did. I know I keep talking about this guy but hey it it what it is! The Lord led Him to me not only for marriage but he was also my mentor. Now I mentor him… JK lol
Stu I can’t agree more these questions are perfecto and I am asking the same questions I answered as well! I am nominating all of you because your writing is such a gift to me and really help inspire me. I love you guys and God bless as you continue to do God’s plans for your life. My nominees are:
Mathew from Honest Thoughts from a Pastor
Nichole from Redeeming Home
Gail from Gail Loves God
D.T. Osborn from TIL Journal
Efua from Grace Over Pain
In 2014 late spring my barefoot feet was standing in Kentucky’s green grass months before my second daughter was due. I held my belly as I looked out into my neighbor’s field in deep thought. My heart was hurting because of what I was hearing from other women what I was experiencing as a woman in this world. Why is it we are suffering the way that we are in this day in age? Why does it seem like we are more oppressed than ever?
Now hold up. Don’t for one second think I am joining the new age feminist train. There is a real oppression that woman are facing and it all has to do with spiritual warfare. We see it in society where doctor’s are no longer assisting us but lording over us in health care, society attacking any form of biblical womanhood, false promises to woman empowerment through the killing of our children, men claiming to be women, and women oppressing other women.
The real enemy to womanhood is sin. And so as I stood there my heart was broken and I felt a strong urge to speak. There was something better and so much more powerful than what we have in the world. And I wanted all woman to know that in Christ they can be redeemed. That although we may not be able to fully return back to pureness of Eden physically, we can spiritually.
A year later God whispered into my ear and spoke His will for me if I would let Him lead me in this. With no understanding of how He would do this through me, but willing to be used anyway I said “Here I am Lord.” To stand in the gap in this day in age is dangerous but my God is much more powerful than any dark forces coming against me!
Is it not time women that we stop getting pieces of the pie? Who wants the whole thing? Who is hungry for it all? The fullness of health , wholeness and TRUE empowerment. It is found in the King of Kings. The Lion that died as a lamb, to restore you back to the Glory you had before the fall and to call you His own once again.
I created this ministry for the woman who are looking for that hope. The hope of something better. But I am here to tell you that it can’t be achieved fully without Him. I refuse to dilute or take the gospel away from what I am doing. Because no one will do what He can do for you. I want you to know the truth and it is only found in God alone. Only He can heal you from every sickness and disease. Only He can mend and care for your broken heart. Only He can set you up high and bring you into every prosperity that He promises for those who love Him. Only He can give you love for eternity.
May God be with me as I walk off this ledge no longer afraid to fall. I know who holds me up. And He is alive in me.
+ The Ministry was named after Eve for her name means “Living” We were made to be truly alive but we can only obtain life through Jesus Christ. In Him we find what real womanhood is.
+ Inspiration and empowerment are the focal points of this Ministry. The aim is to be honest and fully transparent on issues concerning women. At the moment I chronicle my struggles with conception this season in my life. The struggles of infertility is real these days and sharing my journey is my personal “I understand” to you. I advocate for fertility awareness, natural womanhood and share charting wisdom. There will be more on mental illness and spirituality to come.
+ Spiritual redemption is the center of this ministry because without it we can not achieve true healing and empowerment.
I have an Instagram for Living Woman – The Real On Woman hood Here: https://www.instagram.com/livingwomantrw/
And a YouTube channel for it Here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUWCKwukkLmSxql5cjKOwXQ
The section on this blog “I am Woman” will be now be changed to “Living woman -The Real On Womanhood.” This is where I will write and share videos as well.
This ministry is in the baby stages and I am faithfully trusting God to lead me where He wants to take it. My aim is to only do God’s will for me and to run my race with integrity and honor for my Abba, my King, my Savior.
I am excited to do my very first feature on My Father’s Symphony. I hope that in the future I am able to do more as time goes on. My husband and I don’t get to read the Bible together every night because of his work schedule. But throughout the week we send each other verses and articles we find and then we either call and talk about them over the phone or we talk back and forth through email. While I was reading this I thought to myself “Who wrote this? These are powerful truths!” I had a feeling I knew but was not sure. So while we were outside painting the house a few nights ago I asked him who had written that article. “I did.” he said and I immediately asked him if I had his permission to share it! There are many truths in this writing and maybe one day I will elaborate on them more. But for now I hope this blesses you as it did me.
Truth about addiction:
Addiction is not a drug, addiction is not the alcohol, addition is not sex, addiction is not to the internet, addiction is not to work, addiction is not a thrill seeker, addition is not anything the world has ever told you, but it is a spirit that we have allowed in our lives. You cannot take a pill and get rid of it, you cannot go to a therapist, there are not ten easy steps to get rid of this spirit. It will take different forms in your life. If you give up one thing then it will take the place of something else in a different form. The only way to get rid of this is to give it to Jesus, but sometimes it is so deep rooted in our lives that we will have to be anointed with oil, prayed over for many days and hours. To be delivered from this evil spirit.
If you do not get set free of it, it will miss lead you, will cause you to believe that everyone that is trying to help you is out to get you. Addiction along with many spirits have been so deep rooted in many people’s lives, it will take almost death to separate them from this Demon.
Many spirits have masked themselves so well and people are so confused about what they believe, that they do not recognize the true spiritual warfare that is really going on in their lives. The people I refer to are people that confess to be believers. They have to make a choice to allow God to be real and be their God. Sickness is not the same as a disease, Disease is a demonic spirit that has attached itself to them, just like addiction.
May Jesus Christ truly set you FREE.
In these end times as lies are spread like wild fire to choke out truth, let us not forget what our God says about who He is and who we are . Who we are as sinners and who we are as redeemed children in Jesus Christ. How we are to worship Him and how we can seek and find Him. I can’t even began to explain to you the countless useless arguments people have thrown at me to defend their version of God’s word. And I am sure you’ve seen and heard the media, certain groups or communities claim that they know the true God and He’s is okay with their lifestyles and choice of worship. My response as always is never my own truth and believer yours should not be either.
Do I need to say anymore than what the Word already says? Do I need to interpret, add or remove from our God’s words that has been preserved for thousands of years? I know better and I read so many times that He is the same today as He was yesterday. His law remains and no amount of time will change that law. No new “woke” generation will change who He is. And no old religion has authority over the covenant of our savior Jesus Christ.
My husband sent me these two scriptures that solidified everything the Holy Spirit has been leading me to do all the years of my life. Seeking wisdom and knowledge. Walking away from sinful people and my own sinful desires. Allowing Him to restore truth and life in me. It takes a warrior to stand up against the dark forces in this world. And we are all called to be one. We can no longer ignore the death in us. If we do not turn from the lies and defend the truth, we will soon join the grave with the living dead among us.
But where can wisdom be found?
Where does understanding dwell?
13 No mortal comprehends its worth;
it cannot be found in the land of the living.
14 The deep says, “It is not in me”;
the sea says, “It is not with me.”
15 It cannot be bought with the finest gold,
nor can its price be weighed out in silver.
16 It cannot be bought with the gold of Ophir,
with precious onyx or lapis lazuli.
17 Neither gold nor crystal can compare with it,
nor can it be had for jewels of gold.
18 Coral and jasper are not worthy of mention;
the price of wisdom is beyond rubies.
19 The topaz of Cush cannot compare with it;
it cannot be bought with pure gold.
20 Where then does wisdom come from?
Where does understanding dwell?
21 It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing,
concealed even from the birds in the sky.
22 Destruction[a] and Death say,
“Only a rumor of it has reached our ears.”
23 God understands the way to it
and he alone knows where it dwells,
24 for he views the ends of the earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
25 When he established the force of the wind
and measured out the waters,
26 when he made a decree for the rain
and a path for the thunderstorm,
27 then he looked at wisdom and appraised it;
he confirmed it and tested it.
28 And he said to the human race,
“The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding.”
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure: then peace loving. considerate, submissive. full of mercy and good fruit. impartial and sincere. Peace makers who sow peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
Seek Him while He may be found.
Scribbles of words run across a dusted yellow page inside a hand me down journal in the hands of a wide eyed little girl. Words are hard to find when your dreams are bigger than you are but I try my best to write them down. I want to be a teacher when I grow up because nothing is more exciting to me than loving children and teaching them as they grow. What an honor to be able to not shape or mold minds, but feed them and watch them transform into the glorious butterflies they are destined to be.
Years flew by before my very little eyes and as I grew up that dream changed multiple times. Dancer, therapist, pediatrician, pediatric dentistry to ministry. I had long forgotten of the days of wanting to teach children just thinking it was never Gods will for me to be in a public school classroom. But God’s ways are higher than our ways. There is always a reason things happen and it may be for a purpose we do not yet know of.
I remember the year my daughter started kindergarten and the fear that gripped me. Will she be cared for properly? Will they teach her well? How will she behave? Underneath the weight of worry there was excitement knowing that she was going to learn despite my fears. I turned my moments of worry into moments of big prayer for her every morning as she rode the bus to school. But a few weeks later the Lord would call me to something I never thought I would do and that was home school my children for the remainder of their education.
Like a wild animal coming back to the place he ate his last meal seeking for the next, fear came over me once again. I don’t always do so well when things change suddenly. I was so afraid I wouldn’t have the capacity or the skills to pull of such a huge task. Where in the world would I get the money and will I have the patience more importantly? Sure enough God came through provided me with everything I needed and then some for our first year together in our little classroom. It was not until we were halfway finished with our school year did I realize that first dream I ever had was after all what God had called me to do but with my own children in our home. I was full of wonder the moment this revelation came forth in my mind. The dream of becoming a teacher was indeed the plan and will of God for me all along! Fear and worry was replaced with worship and thankfulness every start of the school season. My God had came through for me in such an awesome way! As He always does.
No matter what comes this year I want you to know that sometimes things may not go as you expect but there may be a reason for that. Take everything to the Lord and lean on Him for all understanding and He will lead you to still waters in ways you never would have thought. Don’t hinder the dreams of your children and teach them to dream big. One day they may look back and see the faithfulness of God and how He has brought those very things to life in their adult years. Childhood dreams are one way the Lord speaks His will into our lives at a very young age. His ways are higher and greater than ours and I am so thankful they are!
Have a great School Year!
