Ladies, come and listen and be completely blessed by a Word that is Spoken to Your Heart, The Broken Woman: YAHUAH’s Vision for Your Deliverance


This week, as I was reading the Purim story to our children, some of Ecter’s (Ester’s) words and actions jumped out at me.

By her position and her relationship, Ecter could have approached the King any kind of way.  Hear her impeccable wisdom.  She knew that her need was so dire that she must first prepare for her interaction with him.  She doesn’t prepare alone-but with the help of her people through three days of prayer and fasting together.

Then when the time was right, she went to see him.  She was dressed in her royal garment, standing in the inner court, waiting.  She wasn’t jumping around, pacing back and forth.  She waited patiently.  Her patience pays off because when the King sees her, he immediately favors her and extends his golden scepter toward her.

Then when she walked toward him, she touched the top of his golden scepter and he asked her what was her request-he was ready to give her anything she wanted.

Here is my part-she didn’t assume that because of her position, her relationship, nor even his words that he had just spoken that she should just bring the accusation against Haman.  She doesn’t even assume that his favor would grant any desire her in this request.

Humbly she says:

“If it seem good unto the king,”


“Well, King you need to do something about Haman…”

Not screaming:

“Haman is going to ……..”

Ecter’s(Ester’s) words remind me of a song on my heart right now by Tasha Cobbs Leonard called “For Your Glory.”  The opening words are this (the Name of the Father is corrected here):

“YAHUAH if I have found favor in Your sight…YAHUAH please hear my humble cry, I am desperately waiting…”

This is key for me.  A few weeks ago, during family prayer time, I prayed  a prayer stating all the things that we do/have done and saying that because we do this then YAHUAH must  answer the way that I wanted Him to.  Shortly after, I felt a nudging from the Ruach saying that this was not be an acceptable way to pray.  Yes I was desperate, I wanted and needed YAHUAH to move on our behalf but demanding anything from YAHUAH  as if this a relationship based off a game of wrong.

YAHUAH moves in un-explainable ways.  I surely cannot know or even pretend to grasp His thoughts.  So like the song and Ecter(Ester), I have chosen to take a different route in prayer.  Cry out for help yes, but I must often wait for His answer and not assume that just because I am His daughter that I can demand anything.

So unassuming, humbly I pray…

YAHUAH, if I have found favor in Your sight, can You please…”

and then I wait.

I wait and hope.

I listen for His voice, I know that He hears me and that His Faithfulness is Great.

Who Was She? Deborah, Channah, Edna and Sarah – Tobit’s Praise & Final Words

We’ve come to the end of the this amazing story! If you have just started reading this awesome story, I encourage you to start at the beginning:

Desperate Prayers,

Instructions of a Father and a Mother Weeps,

Married Again? Is there any hope?

Her Deliverance, His Prayer, One Father’s Joy and Two Parents Worry

Restoration, Welcomed & A Revelation

Now, Then Tobit prayed this awesome prayer of praise:

Blessed be Elohiym that lives forever, and blessed be His Kingdom.  For He does scourge, and has mercy: He leads down to She’ol, and brings up again: neither is there any that can avoid His hand. Confess Him before the other people, ye children of Yisra’el: for He has scattered us among them.     There declare His greatness, and extol Him before all the living: for He is our Adonai, and He is Elohiym our Father forever.  And He will scourge us for our iniquities, and will have  mercy again, and will gather us out of all nations, among whom He has scattered.  If ye turn to Him with your whole heart, and with your whole mind, and deal uprightly before Him, then will He turn unto you, and will not hide His face from you.  Therefore see what He will do with you,  and confess Him with your whole mouth, and praise YAHUAH of might, and extol, the Everlasting King.  In the land of my captivity do I praise Him, and declare His might and majesty to a sinful nation.  O ye sinners, turn and do justice before Him: who can tell if He will accept you, and have mercy on you?  I will extol my Elohiym, and my soul shall praise the King of heaven, and shall rejoice in His greatness.  Let all men speak, and let all praise Him for His righteousness.  O Yerushalayim, the holy city, He will scourge you to your children’s works, and will have mercy again on the sons of the righteous.  Give praise to YAHUAH, for He is good:  and praise the Everlasting King, that His Tabernacle may be built in you again with joy, and let him make joyful there in You those that are captives, and love in you those who are miserable.  Many nations shall come from far to the name of YAHUAH ELOHIYM with gifts in their hands, even gifts to the King of Heaven; all generations shall praise you with great joy.  Cursed are they which hate You, and blessed shall all be which love you forever.  Rejoice and be glad for the children of the just: for they shall be gathered together, and shall bless YAHUAH of the just.    O blessed are they which love You, for they shall rejoice in Your peace: blessed are they which have been sorrowful for all Your scourges; for they shall rejoice for You, when they have seen all Your glory, and shall be glad forever.  Let my soul bless Elohiym the great King.  For Yerushalayim shall be built up with sapphires and emeralds, and precious stone: your walls and towers and battlements with pure gold.  And the streets of Yerushalayim shall be paved with beryl and carbuncle and stones of Ophiyr.  And all her streets shall say, HALLELUYAH; and they shall praise Him saying, Blessed be Elohiym, which has extolled it forever.

Tobit (Toviyahu 13:1-18)

After Tobit finished praising YAHUAH, we learn that he was 58 years old at the time he lost his sight and it was restored 8 years later and lived 100 more years (Tobit 14:2 & 11).   When he was nearing death he called is son, and sons’ sons and gave them instruction to leave Niyneveh because of the destruction that was coming.  Then he died and was buried honorably.

Sometime later Channah dies and is buried with Tobit.  Then Toviyahu, Sarah and their children return to Ecbatane to Re’u’el’s home.  Imagine how much joy Re’u’el and Edna had when Toviyahu and Sarah returned with children!  That is was Edna asked Toviyahu to do before he left them 100 years before!  Edna was able to share in the joy of her daughter again and rejoice in their grandchildren..what a blessing.

Toviyahu grows old with honor and soon Re’u’el and Edna die and are buried.  He then inherited Re’u’el’s sustenance along with his own fathers.   Though the death of Sarah is not mentioned, we do know that Toviyahu was 127 years old when he died and he heard of the destruction of Niyneveh.

Although few details are given about the life of Sarah after she and Toviyahu are married and I have no doubt that she rejoiced in YAHUAH’s deliverance that He brought in her life.  She had wanted very much to be a wife and have children, but it just wasn’t time.   She did not try to rush the natural desire to be married by going after other men potentially staining her father’s name.  The book of Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) gives several encouragements about fathers and daughters:

The verses above are so powerful!  It is an encouragement to the father/daughter relationship.  The father covers the daughter, but she also has a choice-she can choose to be shameless, have loose behavior and become pregnant.  Sarah did not do this.  She stayed under the covering of her father, even when she was at a point of wishing for death.  Her father did not push her out of the house as she grew older either, but cared for her and then he was blessed with the joy of giving her to the man she was appointed for – Toviyahu.

Praise YAHUAH for this encouragement to fathers, mothers, sons and daughters!

Our next woman will be Sarah the wife of Avraham but not the Sarah you already know!  We will learn about her desperate prayer, her fear and the enemy.

Who Was She? Deborah, Channah, Edna and Sarah – Restoration, Welcomed & A Revelation

If you have just started reading this awesome story, I encourage you to start at the beginning:

Desperate Prayers,

Married Again? Is there any hope?

Her Deliverance, His Prayer, One Father’s Joy and Two Parents Worry

Finally Toviyahu, Sarah, Rapha’el and the dog started the journey to Ninevah.  Rapha’el suggests that Toviyahu go ahead of Sarah, and take with him the gall of the fish and put it on the eyes of his father so that his sight can be restored.

As she had done nearly everyday since Toviyahu left, Channah, sat looking for her son.  But this day was different-she saw him and the man that went with him!!!!  She went to tell Tobit:

She ran and hugged her son, both of them weeping  saying:

In my mind I can see the tears streaming down her face, finally she was truly at peace.  Her worst fears banished.  Her joy revived.  Her only son had returned home and that was all she needed.

Tobit (Toviyahu Senior) also stumbled out to see Toviyahu.  He ran to his father and took hold of him and put the gall on his father’s eyes saying:

Tobit rubbed his eyes and whiteness pulled away from the corners of his eyes.  When he saw his son he fell up his neck and wept saying:

Then Toviyahu told Tobit all the things that had happened…when Tobit heard about Sarah, he went out to meet her, and welcomed her:

I can only imagine how happy Sarah was to finally be a wife, and now to be welcomed into by her father in law with open arms.  All were happy and another wedding feast was kept for seven days with great joy.

Eventually Tobit and Toviyahu, start talking about giving Rapha’el his agreed payment.  Toviyahu says that he wants to give him more and his father agrees.  They call Rapha’el and Rapha’el begins to tell them that he has some things to say:

They are left floored!  They did not know that all this time an angel was with them!  Do you remember Tobit’s words when he sent Toviyahu off:

“may the good angel be with you…”

YAHUAH heard their prayers and was moving in their lives when they did not even know it.  How many times has YAHUAH done things in our lives and we did not know He had sent help?  Too many to count.  Reading through the scriptures there are numerous instances where YAHUAH was doing things in peoples lives, directing their paths, sending people – prophets, angels, columns of clouds, columns of fire, opening doors, delivering from the mouth of lions and much more.

All the while Tobit was doing what he was taught to do from his grandmother Deborah-helping others, keeping YAHUAH’s clean food commands, burying the dead, mourning for the sins of his people – YAHUAH had one of the seven Set-Apart Angels watching over him.  YAHUAH had a purpose and a plan.  Tobit’s healings and Sarah’s deliverance were miraculous works of YAHUAH!

Next Toviyahu’s words of praise and final thoughts.

Shabbat Message: HE Is GOOD All The Time

Are you down?  Are you experiencing trials and tribulations in life?  Do you feel that YAHUAH is far from you?

YAHUAH never promised us that life would be perfect or trouble free.  Despite life’s trials, tribulations and our sin – YAHUAH is good all the time.  Sometimes the circumstances we find ourselves in – are YAHUAH’s unknown deliverances to keep Him at the center of our lives.  Furthermore, the trials and tribulations of life can teach us endurance or are ment for us to help someone else.

Receive the encouragement that you need from YAHUAH’s Word in HE is Good All the Time

Shabbat Message – A Question of Faith

Are you ready for change in your life?  Do you feel as if something isn’t right?  Have somethings happened to you that have opened the door in your heart to bitterness, hatred, strife and unforgiveness?

What is the role of forgiveness in our lives?  Are we able to allow YAHUAH to burn the flame of forgiveness in our lives to be free or are we choosing to be consumed with unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and strife – preparing ourselves to burn in the flames of eternity?

This life changing, compelling Shabbat message brings up  and answers the Question About Faith.  Come listen and let the Father YAHUAH bring forth The Freedom that HE Desires For You in:  A Question of Faith.

What Mercy Did For Me?

Have you learned the truth about the Name of the Father and His Son, but have found yourself tired and frustrated, feeling weighed down by “current” correct word pronunciations?  Or laws that seem to bind your faith into joyless worship?  Or maybe no real worship or praise at all?  What happened to mercy?  What saves a person?

Be encouraged and changed in this excellent message What Mercy Did For Me?


Who Was She? Deborah, Channah, Edna & Sarah: Her Deliverance, His Prayer, One Father’s Joy and Two Parents Worry

If you have just started reading this awesome story, I encourage you to start at the beginning:

Desperate Prayers,

Instructions of a Father and a Mother Weeps,

Married Again? Is there any hope?

Finally Toviyahu is directed into Sarah’s room, and he remembered the words of Rapha’el, so he took the ashes, the heart and liver of the fish and made a smoke.  When the evil ruach smelled the smoke, he fled into Mitsrayim where the angel bound him.

Then Toviyahu said to her:

And she said with him Amein.  Then they both slept that night.

While they were sleeping Re’u’el was digging a grave.  When he came into the house, he asked Edna to send one of the maids to see whether Toviyahu was alive or not.  The maid  found him alive and ran to tell Re’u’el!  Imagine Re’u’el’s excitement and joy!  The first thing he did was praise Elohim saying:

Then he had the grave filled and so began a fourteen day wedding feast!

How awesome are the prayers of Toviyahu and Re’u’el!!!!  What blessing it is that Toviyahu prayed for a long life with his wife.  Truly awe-inspiring is the prayer of Re’u’el thanking YAHUAH for His mercy, then praying health, joy and mercy over Toviyahu and Sarah.

The wedding  feast lasted for 14 days!  During that time, Toviyahu sent, Rapha’el to get the money from Gavay’el and to invite him to the wedding feast.

While they are feasting, Tobit and Channah (Toviyahu’s parents) were becoming very concerned.  It appears as though they began to argue with one another telling one another to keep their peace.  Tobit trying to reassure his wife that Toviyahu is okay and Channah believing their son is dead.    Her grief so heavy that she went out everyday sitting looking for him, ate no meat and cried entire nights for their son.

Finally Toviyahu and Sarah make ready to leave.  Re’u’el gave them half of his goods (the other half when he and Edna die).  He and Edna bless them with these words:

Re’u’el to them:

Re’u’el to Sarah:

Edna to Toviyahu:


Sarah received her deliverance!  How relieved she must have felt!  Finally, her years of torment, hurt, confusion, sleepless nights – ended!  She was blessed with a husband who wanted to be with her, who prayed for her – who prayed to grow old with her.  I can only imagine the tears streaming down her face as he prayed.  I would think that when in the morning, she would have run to her mother and this time the sorrowful tears that she’d cried many times before, were replaced with abundant joy!

Re’u’el and Edna, must have been ecstatic with pure bliss. Re’u’el’s praise to YAHUAH is truly beautiful.  Furthermore, Re’u’el made sure that they would do well.  He immediately gave half of everything he owned to Toviyahu – servants, cattle and money.

Now will they make it home?  What will their life be?
