FREE ENERGY PROGRAM Did you know there is such a thing as


At least, there is with Ambit Energy.

DEAR TTT FAMILY & FREINDS I am excited about all that God has done throughout this year, and I am just as excited about what God is going to do in the future. You may be saying, “Well, Joel, my year wasn’t so amazing. I didn’t see all of the things I wish I could have seen in my life.” If so, let me encourage you today... God still wants to do incredible and amazing things in your life!

saw abundant resources and provision that were far above anything they had ever experienced.


what they also saw in front of were giants. There were enemies who possessed the land who were larger and very intimidating.

I think that’s something we can all relate to. Even though God has made us great promises, many times we tend to focus on the giants. Your giant may be: ● A relational disappointment you’ve recently experienced. ● Your finances that haven’t turned outthe way you hoped. ● The fact that you’ve been sick. A disappointment you can’t seem to get past. Here

is a question I would like to ask you: Are you ready to position yourself to see the “God of more than enough” come through and meet your need?


starting point is your willingness to let go of fear and doubt and anxiety. Take hold of the fact that God loves you, has a plan for you and really does want to show Himself strong on your behalf.

He wants to defeat every giant. He wants to overcome every obstacle. And He wants to do exceedingly, abundantly above all you ask or think! Victoria

and I are so grateful for you and that you are helping us share the message of HOPE around the world. Your prayers and support make it possible for millions of people to hear about the hope found in Jesus Christ. Thank you! And Have A Merry Christmas & A Happy, Happy Blessed New Year!

is my testimony and I would like to share it with you in hopes to inspire other women. I am a single 47yr old hispanic female with as associates degree. I have struggled with life as a single parent of two. Had lots of unhealthy relationships. Made more mistakes than most women in 3 generations.

I have hit rock bottom and lost everything. Starting with self-respect, dignity, pride and

most of all my children leaving me in a state of mind wanting to give up. I then turned to God and surrendered all. By Praying and asking for forgiveness, direction and fullfilment. I knew that at this point only He could lead, guide and show me a better way. He put in my path a job that has opened doors that I could never imagined possible. Today I work on the Barrilleaux PIPELINE DIVISION with about 300 men as a welders helper. My job is a challenge. It is the hardest job I have ever had but it is so rewarding.

God has answered my prayers in many ways. And

one of them ways is allowing me to experience a job onthe pipeline for Barrilleax, among many men who treat me as an equal. I work hard through the hottest days in the summer and in the coldest in the winter. I work fulltime and take 3 classes a week. I never dreamed I could or would have such a blessed opportunity as today! So to all you women out there struggling. I have a bit of advise. “Don’t give up!!” Prayer and faith is never to late. I finally feel worthy. And there are plenty of jobs for struggling females in a mans world. The Oil fields are booming and it pays well.

And remember! Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mistery, today is the present! Thats why we call it a gift or some say a blessing. “God is in control!” can have storms but letting them storms carry you to the place where GOD wants you to be can become your promotion in life. Consider your mistakes a blessing and a leasson learned. If it were not for my mistakes. I would of never learned and come to where I am today! There are pics thoughout this paper of me at work. “I hope you consider praying.” it works! Life

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Yours truely, Marie Mendez

If God were to show you right now the good that He has in store for your life, I believe it would boggle your mind. You may have seen God’s goodness in the past, but it’s nothing compared to what He has prepared for your future. God is shifting things in your direction. New and unprecedented favor is coming your way. Regardless of your circumstances, you don’t have to spend one more day of your life worried, uncertain or stressed out. YOU’RE TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED! That’s more than a catchphrase. It’s the truth of God’s Word.

●L 6 ● SG 3 : = 28:2 NKJV

The Scripture says that when you honor od with your life, He puts a commanded blessing on you “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you...” Deuteronomy The commanded blessing is like a magnet. It draws in the favor of God.

●0 S.AD ●0 L.AD

Good breaks are drawn to you. New opportunities are drawn to you. Creativity, promotion, influence, resources and divine connections are all drawn to you because you’ve become a magnet for God’s goodness! God’s Word says, “...blessings reward the righteous” (Proverbs 13:21). Because of Jesus, you have been made righteous before Almighty God. Your righteousness is not based on your own good works — it’s based on the work Jesus did on your behalf. 21 Adversity pursues sinners, But the righteous will be rewarded with prosperity. 22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.

Today, wholeheartedly put your faith in that incredible work from God. If you’ll put aside worry and stress and just trust God, you’ll discover that the blessings of God are looking for you — right now! HERE’S A VERY IMPORTANT KEY TO REMEMBER: You don’t have to seek the blessings. Seek God and the blessings will seek after you! The right people will find you! The promotion will come your way! That life-changing opportunity will track you down! You don’t have to go after the blessings — just go after God. Keep Him first place, and God promises He will bless your life in ways you can’t even imagine. God has called you, equipped you, empowered you and chosen you for great things. Get ready to receive what He has already set in motion for your life.

●L5 ●S1 FAMILY, WE WIN! ¡SALUDOS! Please lift me in prayer as I seek a word from God to share on the last Sunday of 2013 at TDA Church, Dallas, TX. 1, 2, 3, what? 1, 2, 3, people say 7 is a lucky number, you know what I will keep standing in, “I choose to live by faith, not by chance.” Romans 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith”


I shared this verse at the church where I corpo rately gather to worship weekly my Lord and savior Jesus the anointed Son of the most highest, ‘El Elyon’ in the Hebrew means the most high God. It says in John 1:16 Out of his fullness we have received grace in place of grace already given. My first born son in talking with me one day last week said, “in a conversation with Patrick”, which is my second born son, “the subject about God came up”. What led to the subject was a discussion in knowing that as you honor God, in his faithfulness he will favor you, what caught my attention is what my first born son assured to my second born son. At a certain point in their conversation my second born son, stated something like this, “I am no more favored than you or anyone else.” Now watch and catch with me ‘grace already given’, ‘grace’ is good news. In the other article I mentioned I would share part two of the lottery PIC I that I attached with my name on a list with other names, names of people taking a chance to win $$’s. In short, co -workers decided to collectively by lottery tickets, this subject was brought up at the conclusion of a meeting. As I mentioned everyone jumped in and said lets do it, but when they looked at me, and asked are you in on this? My reply, “no thanks!” I was asked, why ? I answered, “I choose to live by faith, not by chance.” That comment left all in silence for a moment, it later led the leader pushing on this idea to approach me and say, “Robert, take no offense I will pitch in for you and you will partake equally if we win.” Family, friend, my second born got it right, ‘grace’, its available to all that receive, choose faith, not chance, experience ‘fullness’ in good news. ¡Bendiciones!

‘08 22 37 54 64, take a close look PIC below you will see my name ‘Robert’ on the list for a chance to win the lottery, this week part one next week part two about the testimony related to this chance to win $$! I have good news!



Romans 1:17 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith”

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:21, NIV)

Make sure to let the sponsors know you seen their AD! TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria The scripture says, “We overcome evil with good.” In other words, when somebody’s rude or inconsiderate, don’t sink down to their level. Don’t be rude and inconsiderate back to them. No, if you going to rise higher, if you are going to overcome, you have to do just the opposite. You have to show kindness, grace and mercy. It isn’t always easy; in fact, it’s almost never easy. It takes a lot of humility to treat someone with respect who is disrespecting you. But do you know what happens when you walk in humility? God gives you His grace. He empowers you to walk in His goodness. Scripture plainly says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Today, walk humbly with God and overcome evil with good. Show mercy and sow mercy. Receive His grace, receive His power, and receive His strength to be everything He’s called you to be. A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for the grace to overcome in this life. I choose Your goodness. I choose Your ways. Help me to show Your love and walk in peace in every circumstance in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Their are many things that will come up in our journey of life in this age as we know it, issues in our relationships, finances, careers, loss of loved ones, on and on. Sometimes these issues takes the best out of us unfortunately negatively, and in the process we end up hurting others as well as ourselves. But can I remind someone the words of our L ord, Jesus Christ, he said in the second sentence of John 16:33 “..In this world you will have trouble..” I love this, Jesus did not sugar coat anything, he taught with authority and truth, now watch he also said in the first sentence of John 14:6 “..I am the way the truth and the life..” So this teaches us despite our circumstances, in him and only through him we can win even though, now do not miss this, even though we loose! Yep, even when we loose, we still win in him, yes only in our good news. I want to share an edifying faith experience that took place at my work place before I comment a few more words concerning the scriptures I shared in the first paragraph. At the conclusion of a team meeting a colleague brought up the idea of involving the whole team to buy lottery tickets and if the numbers hit, split the money equally. Everyone went for it, except me I stayed quiet, then I was asked, Robert what about you? I answered with courtesy, “no thanks,” I was asked why not ? I simply answered, “because I choose to live by faith, not by chance.” Family, friend, I thank God that he is faithful, you see since I know he is the ‘way’ and said I would have ‘trouble’, but he also said in the last part of John 16:33 ..”But take heart! I have overcome the world.” So, “I choose to live by faith, not by chance.” Even in loosing we win in good news. ¡Bendiciones!

YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR HAPPINESS TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “...No one can take away your joy.” (John 16:22, NIV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Life may not have turned out the way you planned, but you still have

the power to be happy right where you are. God is the source of all

Make sure to let the sponsors know you seen their AD! And take advantage... Working together makes it better. People helping

joy, and when God gives you something, nothing in the world can take it away. That means other people cannot make you unhappy, no cir-

cumstance can force you to get upset. Nothing can take your joy; you have to give it away. You’re in complete control of your happiness.

Think of it this way: If somebody is rude to you, what they’re really saying is, “Give me your joy.” Somebody cuts you off in traffic, “Let me have your joy.” Somebody ignores you or leaves you out of a meeting; they’re just asking for your joy. You have a choice. You can give it to them by going around upset, frustrated and offended. Or, you can make a much better decision and say, “No thanks, I need my joy. I’m not going to get upset because you were rude and didn’t speak to me. I’m not going to be frustrated because you cut me off in traffic. I’ve already made up my mind that I’m going to live this day happy!” Instead of giving them your joy, give them mercy, grace and understanding. Give them the benefit of the doubt and keep your joy because only you are in control of your happiness! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I hold on to joy. I refuse to give it up, and I refuse to let go of my peace. Give me Your strength today as I keep my heart and mind focused on Your love in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Psalm 13:5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. Psalm 33:22 May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in you. Amen!
