Poems and Relieving Anxiety and Stress
by Susanna Katherine

What greater love can be bestowed?
Our God came down for us to know.
What greater love can one give?
Than lose their life for another to live.
Sublime, supreme, awe inspired
Of the love of God I never get tired
Never there be in all of mankind
A story more beautiful to find
Oh perfect God Holy and true
You made me and kept me just for you
And when to You we disobeyed
You patiently waited until you could save
The ones whose choice is only you
Oh perfect God Holy and true.


"A Love Song to God"
by Susanna Katherine


What manner of love is this?
Wholly selfless, not greedy, agape it is.
Make me wiser all to find
Make me brighter too
Give me words that can bend a mind
To see the truth of You
Let me see Lord with your eyes
With Your ears let me hear
Wash my eyes Lord to see the wise
Even with many a tear
Dissolve the world around me
So only You I hear and see
Agape only agape... Spirit come in me
Comfort me, teach me, guide me so soon I am free.


When feeling panicky, fearful or depressed first spend time with God and pray for His help...also...

Think of a beautiful place where you want to be...see it, feel it, smell it, enjoy it...relax, slow your breathing down, sigh with deep slow breaths, focus all your attention on it and a good outcome that you can imagine happening instead of worrying about that something you repeatedly dread that probably will never happen or you can't do anything about anyway. When that demon of dread and fear shows up...immediately jump over to that beautiful place and put all your focus on it...dwell there...where the peace of the Lord is. Know that soon the discomfort will leave you and you will be fine.

Interesting Facts...

If you didn't have an imagination, you would not worry or be creative.

Everything good humans have accomplished started with somebody's imagination working in the right way.

Worry is also a function of imagination.

You can use your imagination for good thoughts, creativity, painting, writing, playing music, singing, etc. or you can use it for bad thoughts, worry and misery. It is your choice...choose wisely. Don't make yourself your own victim and ruin your life. The victim mentality is addictive so stop it immediately.

Thoughts become chemicals. Worry is bad thoughts that produce chemical imbalances.

Stress not handled properly and causing worry and fear produces flight or fight that causes too much adrenaline that makes the heart beat faster, the blood pressure to go up and many symptoms and feelings like you are dying.

Stress not handled properly can cause anxiety which can cause chest or upper abdomen discomfort, feeling of dread, rapid heart, chest pain, sweating, and feeling like not getting enough oxygen, breathing shallow or breathing too fast, panic attacks.

Stress handled properly can produce great creativity.

All great creativity is from great anxiety.

Panic attacks are a feeling of impending doom or about to die and create many other symptoms.

Imagery = visual arts, drama, poetry, creativity can calm the brain, relieve the effects of stress, expand awareness, add choices, empower the mind to think clear good thoughts instead of bad thoughts.

Imagining a peaceful, safe, beautiful place helps the one part of your brain tell the fight or flight part of your brain that it is beautiful and safe so it hits the all clear and not the fight or flight stress (fast heartbeat, anxiety feelings).

Being creatively busy with you mind, hands and body keeps these demons of worry, fear, and anxiety away.

Idle (not busy, work-shy) hands are the devil's workshop.

"My people perish for lack of knowledge."

"Above all...seek wisdom."...the wisdom of the Lord is the only wisdom.

Painting Of Two Tulip Tree Flowers

Painting Of Two Tulip Tree Flowers


Three types of Millennial Age people are…

Glorified bodied saints who are immortal.  They have spirit bodies like Jesus had after He died and rose again and walked through walls. They are the ones who were raptured from the earth and the graves. 
People who got saved during the great tribulation who do not have glorified bodies but human like bodies that must live off the Tree of Life on earth forever.
The unsaved yet that are born during the millennial age and are allowed to live on earth until the end of the millennial age.  Some of these won’t accept Christ.

You know it is near the end as we know it when they have made the word "bad" and bad things into something desirable!
The people of the ancient city of Sodom became Sodomites in the worst way and they thought it was cool and normal...they would not repent....they got blown off the earth. 

Who can beat a deal like this?....God said, "I will forgive all your sins and make you new."  Grace suffocates your sins. 

If you feel fear, come right back at it with faith and say...
 "I know God is good and He will take care of me."

Don't let fear of past disappointments and failures stop you and say out loud...
"I'm not going to give up no matter how long it takes to get an answer.  I have the mind of Christ and I will receive His help if I don't give up."

Pray according to the will of heaven (what the Word says) and not according to the appearance and lies of the world (what you see). 

Faith comes by hearing the Word of God...read it and hear it.

What pleases God is faith.
  For Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

God created everything out of nothing and your faith can too...just believe.

For those who overcome all the trials of life to the end will inherit the kingdom of heaven as kings and priests in God's family.

“No one has ever seen,
   no one has ever heard,
     no one has ever imagined
    what God has prepared for those who love him.”

Painting Of Iris Flowers Two
What a wonderful love story we are all living
The Creator became corruption and died for all
No greater love or example of giving
Only His blood forgives our sinful fall
To set us free from a future of loneliness in hell
In darkness, with demons and burning tares
To the heights of ecstasy, peace and being well
To live eternally with our God who showed He cares
His Word reveals all truth and not just some
It tells of the garden where He prayed  
And He knew what was to come
He could have walked away
No army on earth could stop His death
Or His birth  delay
This is the narrow way
Our good works are at a loss
Only His perfect blood shed on the cross
Could save us from our sin
And the mess we are in.
Hallelujah Praise The Lord!  
                      By Susanna Katherine
 
 
"For without the shedding of PEFECT blood, there is no forgiveness
of sin." 
There had to be a perfect man to pay our sin debt and none of us were or are perfect for we are all born in sin because of what our original ancestors (Adam and Eve) did (rebellion)...we are born like them...that is why God had to become man for that time when He was on earth and shed His blood on the cross to save us from hell.  He did it for us.  To be saved all one needs to do is accept that your redemption is from His death on the cross alone and nothing you have done.  We need to humbly be sorry for our sins and repent (change) and accept Him as our Savior and He will not turn anyone away that does this sincerely.   But don't fall away by forgetting and going back into the world...Keep the Word a regular part of your life from that day forward. The Expositor's Study Bible is the very best I have ever read...it opens up a whole new world of understanding for the born again believer.

Painting of Bridge of Life


Bridge of Life
 
Thankful For...
I don't love darkness.
Light and darkness can't exist together.
There is either darkness or light.
If you choose darkness then you accept it, begin loving it and craving it.
And without the Light, you become one with darkness...a part of darkness...
then you become darkness.
In God there is no darkness.
Jesus is God. Jesus is Light.
Without Jesus and Light, you are eternally damned to live in darkness and separated from God and totally alone forever.  SK

Proverbs 8:22-26 " The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His creation, before His works of long ago. I was set up before ancient times from the beginning, before the earth began. I was brought forth when there were no watery depths and no springs filled with water. I was brought forth before the mountains and hills were established, before He made the land, the fields, or the first soil on earth. I was there when He established the heavens, when He laid out the horizon on the surface of the ocean, when He placed the skies above, when the fountains of the ocean gushed forth, when He set a limit for the sea so that the waters would not violate His command, when He laid out the foundations of the earth. Then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him. I was His delight every day, always rejoicing before Him. I was rejoicing in His inhabited world, delighting in the human race. And now, [my] sons, listen to me; those who keep my ways are happy. Listen to instruction and be wise; don't ignore it. Anyone who listens to me is happy, watching at my doors every day, waiting by the posts of my doorway. For the one who finds me finds life and obtains favor from the LORD, but the one who sins against me harms himself; all who hate me love death."
 
This speaks of Jesus Christ, Who is Wisdom, the Word, and Who was always with God the Father.
If we sin against the Bible (The Word of God=Jesus Christ) disobeying or ignoring it's instructions, we have sinned against our own souls.

Painting of Apple Repeat - This Time Choose Life

Trick me once, I am a fool...trick me twice and I am a really stupid fool.
This time I hope we pass up the forbidden apple and obey God for a change and pass up all the pain, suffering, misery, starvation, disasters, thorns, diseases, sickness, animals eating animals, humans eating animals and death...none of which existed in the Garden of Eden that God provided for man.  We made the wrong choice and chose sin and the world.  This time I choose God's way and everlasting life out of hell...through Jesus Christ.  I don't make friends with God's enemies like vampires and werewolves and witches (all of which can never be saved or good). I won't give them any time in my life.   Don't even try that apple again with me devil!

Baby John Leaped In His Mother's Womb

 
Baby John Leaped In His Mother's Womb
 
And it came to pass that when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary
(telling about the birth of Jesus), the babe (John the Baptist) leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1:41
 
For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
Luke 1:44
 
Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
 
Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Psalm 127:3
 
Thus says the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that makes all things; that stretched forth the heavens alone; that spread abroad the earth by myself;
Isaiah 44:24
 
Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.
Jeremiah 20:17

Original Painting Of Jesus Christ

  Original Painting Of Jesus Christ
"Jesus Loves You" 
In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
All things were made by him (Jesus); and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shined in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
 
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 1
King James Version (KJV)

In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1 John 1:1
 
For the message of the Cross (Jesus and the Bible) is foolishness to those perishing and lost but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18
 
"If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever - the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you."
- John 14:15-17

Painting Of The Two Beasts Of Revelations


Painting Of The Two Beasts Of Revelations

The horned beast with dragon wings is the first beast that comes up out of the water (considered the antichrist spirit, the final antichrist at the end, and satan (dragon) who is behind it all) and has the mouth of a lion, the body of a leopard and the feet of a bear (Russia). It has 7 heads representing the powers that persecuted Israel in the past and the final head that will in the future. The last head on the tail end of history and which has not happened yet, is the final power that will persecute Israel in the great tribulation of Armageddon and will consist of 10 horns (powers -rulers or nations=horns) that will try to annihilate Israel but just before the end the Lord will come and take over and stop it.
The second beast will come in to help the final antichrist by making an image of the beast antichrist that will talk (image on the TV/computer monitor likely) demanding worship to the antichrist and the mark of the beast (666). The second beast comes in looking like a lamb (Christian spiritual leader) but talks like a dragon (fire coming out of his mouth like a dragon and upon the earth. He is a fake prophet and is later called the false prophet.
Also included is the sign of satan (fingers positioned as the horns of satan) for the horns on the lamb like beast. For years, celeBRATies and politicians have flashed this sign with their hand and most or many of them  are in with the new world order /illuminati/satanic-luciferian (ones who have sold their soul to satan for worldly fame or chosen him over God and Jesus). The blind’s hand sign for LOVE is very similar to the satan sign and it was thought many were just signing LOVE but then it was  discovered that in the Satanic Bible, it shows satan's sign and it includes the same sign as the blinds sign for love there. Helen Keller was supposedly a Satanist and she chose the sign of satan for the word love…this, may or may not be the full truth …so much on the Internet is lies or some lies with a lot of truth. It is like rat poison that is 97% good corn meal but the rest can kill you. It is possible that  most who do this sign very often know what they are doing, maybe not always consciously…but they have chosen out of ignorance…people die for lack of knowledge. There may be a few that really mean love (the blind of course) when they are signing it with their hand but probably not many.

One of the most unbelievable things in this life is that these people can do these evil things in plain sight thinking that we are all too ignorant to figure out what they are doing...or that most do not even care. There is a falling away from the truth and apostasy has gripped the world. People have been lulled and deceived into loving and accepting what is popular in the culture.  When you love God's enemies (satan, vampires, werewolves, wizards and witches) you can not love God the way He deserves.  These evil things can never ever be good or become good...but satan wants you to believe they and he are good and also that real good is bad.  Let all who have ears to hear (understand the truth) choose the truth of God and not lies from satan.  The above painting is from Revelations 13:1 , verses 11-18

I love owls and they are very popular now along with gnomes and mushrooms.  I enjoyed painting this one because I like these colors together and it looks beautiful hanging in my special room.  I never get bored of painting trees.

The rose must be the queen of flowers and is beloved by many.  It is the symbol of love and is used as a special gift for special holidays, anniversaries, weddings, Valentine's Day and so much more.  It brings joy just to look at them and get a delightful whiff of their special fragrance.

Painting Of The Seven Spirits Of God In Revelations

Painting Of The Seven Spirits Of God In Revelations

King James Version (KJV)
 
Revelation 4:5
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
 
Revelation 5
5 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
 
The Cross on the right side of the painting is composed of the saved people worshipping God (if you look closely.

Painting Of New Jerusalem - City Of God's Kingdom On Earth (close up view)


New Jerusalem - City Of God's Kingdom On Earth
 
 This painting of the New Jerusalem City of God's Kingdom on earth is a close-up of the huge city.  The  City is so large that if viewed in its entirety, the gates would not be visible unless they were very large.  See the last post and the painting below to see how the city would look if it were on earth and viewed from space looking down on earth and read on that post more about it.  It is over half the size of America.  Someday, if born again we will live in that city.  The walls of the city are made of clear Jasper gemstoneOut of that city will flow the river of life.  The city is square and has three pearl gates on each side with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel on each one.  The door on the gate is a pearl and the gate will always be open.  This painting shows the gate with the tribe of Judah on it.  Jesus was of the tribe of Judah.  The foundation is made of twelve different gemstones with the names of the 12 apostles of Jesus on each one because they are the foundation of the church (they started the church and spread the gospel).  The first gemstone is amethyst and Peter is listed as the first apostle so his name is on the first bottom gemstone.  There is also an angel at each gate.
