Hello Family, I was looking for the "Armor of God" in the Bible and found it in Ephesians 6 “Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:10-18)

I have a question, and I was wondering if any of the WAVES knew if Betty has ever shared knowledge of this. I'm not sure I understand the three in one. Is Jesus God? Did God fill the form of Jesus with himself or is Jesus our brother? Does Betty have knowledge of The Holy Spirit from her NDE? I dont remember reading anything about The Holy Spirit in her books so I wonder if I missed something. I know that some belief systems claim that The Holy Spirit is a Feminine energy. However, I was just wondering if Betty has shared with anyone any knowledge she had. Please understand I know what the Bible says about it, but I was just wondering if Betty had been shown something different. Thank you all.

Hello Family, Some of you may have remembered, but today marks the beginning of Lent. Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40 day season (not counting Sundays)marked by repenting, fasting, reflection and ultimately Celebration. The 40 day period represents Christs time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christs life, ministry, sacrifice and resurrection. I look forward to reflecting on Christs sacrifice for this world, and for myself personally. I pray you all have a blessed beginning of Lent, as this is my favorite time of the year to meditate on Christ and his unconditional love. Have a beautiful day.

Hello Family, There is something on my mind and heart that is overwhelming. Its the concept/reality/energy of Love. The simplicity of the word we use to describe what is so omnipotent can not be described. Our language is a barrier. There are so many different forms of Love, but Agape love is what I want to explore in this post. Like going to the beach and watching the waves roll in and out, we know there is a vast and deep ocean beneath the surface, so I would like to jump in and learn more about this particular love. Forever, I am a student of Love and Healing. The art of loving has many different strokes of beauty that are mesmerizing, and when placed together brings about a portrait held complete by the Master of creation. as I type out my words, I feel his presence with me, motivating me to continue while my brain is telling me to stop that I am not making any sense. The newer WAVES will not understand and think I've had a breakdown. Then so be it. Allow yourselves the permission to be illogical for a moment After all, Love is illogical. What do you think Love is? There is some forms of love that I am just not a fan of. Or should I say a love that is not of my perception of God. I think the word is misused and the meaning is contorted to suit others selfish desires. What I would like to discuss is Gods love and what you think it is. How does it make you feel? What does it do for you? How do you share Gods love or do you even think its humanely possible? Yeah, I know... I'm going pretty deep. I really want to know your perception and desires for Agape love. After all, Jesus told Betty that the main message is to love one another. I'm just not sure which love He was referring to, or do you think it matters in the least?

Hello WAVE Family :) Please forgive me if this is too negative or if I'm off the mark so to say but there is something thats been on my mind since this Coronavirus has taken over the world. I know that we pray for Gods Will to be done in our prayers, and so I know logically if God was to awaken the world this would be a way to go about it. But there is something that is bothering me. Do you realize that it was around the time that Betty changed website, and we simply stopped praying together that this started to happen? There is a part of me that thinks that the reason this virus got out of hand was because we all took a break from prayers. I know that may sound silly, and believe me, I KNOW that we have all had a year full of personal trials that kept us away from the board and away from our prayers together... but what if it was because we did not unite as one that things got worse? That we could have stopped the virus and saved some lives if we would have prayed together like we did in the past when there was fires or Earthquakes or Hurricanes? Why did we stop? Do you think God put things in our path that took us further from eachother or that maybe the enemy did that so we would not unite in prayer and things could get this bad? I know what I'm saying is not logical. But wondering if any of my WAVE family has thought of this and what would Betty say about it?

Hello Family, I've been away for almost 8 months now. Ever since the new website had been brought up and possibly a little before. I thought it would be helpful if I explained my journey over these past months and to explain why it wasn't till now that I've tried to reconnect. Back in July of 2019 I followed the directions given about how to enter the new website. I placed my email address in the area it requested, but I never received a response. For whatever reason I did not get a response, I took it as a sign from spirit that I was not to be on the new site. Which I understood that God had other plans for me. I had just received a promotion at my work and I had to learn quickly as I had never filled in this position before. I was placed in a store that had never made a profit. Not even one dollar, yet it had been opened for two years and had two prior male managers before me. They call that the "Good Ole Boys Club" down in the south. Its illegal, but a reality. Most believe women are too emotional or weak to be in a place of leadership. I was taken by surprise to receive the "honor" of being a Unit Director in charge over a multimillion dollar restaurant. However, I had NO CLUE on how to do that. I'd never made a schedule, made a deposit, ordered a truck, dealt with vendors, give raises, fire anyone, nothing. I had never been trained. Its like giving a person whom has never drove before the keys to a brand new car. You have a general idea..but no experience. My boss just "believed' in me. Oh boy. What pressure right?. And guess what.. the first three months was a complete struggle for me. I was in charge of a restaurant where the employees resented me, filled with jealousy and bitterness, male and female, they each took their turn to make my life harder than it what it had to be. The managers did not help me. Corporate thought that they would train me. That was not the case. I will not go into detail on how they treated me, because that is not the point. Just know that I did not have one day off that entire time until I could muster up some time to hire more staff and retrain them. I was doing it all by myself. No assistants. There was even a time when I had to call the police, call an ambulance and find one of the managers in the bathroom stall passed out with a heroin needle hanging out of her arm. She was let go immediately as she needed more help than I could give her. I let them keep their positions and their pay and they had not one responsibility. I needed staff. So, what did I do instead? I gave them everything in my power . I showered them with kindness and love. I did everything I could do to warm their hearts and believe in good people again. Why did I do that? Because I understood where they were coming from. Their past boss's were abusive, neglectful and harmful. Unfortunately, I had to bare the stripes of the previous boss's transgressions. And yes, it was painful. But if I did not have the foundation of "Embraced by the Light" as my backbone, there would have been no way I could have tolerated or stood up for myself when I needed to. I had to learn many things very fast. Guess what?! I did it! After the second month, I received a phone call from the Director of Operations telling me that for the first time in history, my restaurant, had made a profit!! I was very happy but knew that I still did not know what I was doing. I just took what the other manager told me off and on and added it all up together and did the very best I could. They all thought I had been trained when I hadn't. I was just following common sense and listening to what spirit told me to do. I wanted to do well. It was a great challenge for myself to learn. And I did! The Director of Operations came to visit me shortly thereafter wanting to know what I had changed etc. I told him the truth. I knew NOTHING. I had never filled that position before, I had no ideas what I was doing and that I didn't have the temperment to write people up or fire them. All I did was work, fill positions myself, and do the best I could with what I had. He was flabbergasted. I dont like to think about all that I had done because I start having a panic attack. It was really overwhelming. Sometimes, I would just sleep in the parking lot because I didn't have enough time to go home and shower between shifts. Thats just how determined I was that we would make that restaurant profitable. The staff slowly changed. They begin to trust me, and I them..but I always verified. The problem employees slowly weeded themselves out. I've not written up one, nor fired anyone. What I thought was a promotion, was actually a position in a store that no one wanted because of the employees there. The store had lost 3 various, several thousand dollar deposits in the past two years. How? The qualified Unit Directors wouldn't touch that store. Now I know why. At Christmas I had another visit from the Director of Operations. Not knowing my background or beliefs (other than I had integrity) he started talking to me and his eyes glazed over. He told me, "This store has changed. When I come inside here now, I am not repulsed. The energy is different. The vibe is different. I feel love. You are love. Thats all you are. You changed this store from one of despair into one of welcome. If there is anything I can do for you please tell me and its yours." So then, I sat back and I said, "I'm not a Unit Director. I do not want this position anylonger. I'd rather you put me in another position because I am working too much because I care more than I should." He understood, and now I am training my replacement. I'm not sure where this will lead me, but I do know that I never want to be in a position like this again. It wasn't until recently that I got an email from Juan Marie about the movie, that is when I reconnected with her and Renee. I was able to fumble around until I finally got on. So you see, It wasn't because I was tired of being a WAVE, it was because I was a WAVE that I was able to help others better themselves and move on. Thank you all for reading. I apologize for not being here before now, but this is what was supposed to happen. Love, Virginia
