Getting a blessing from God, doesn't come naturally. It comes from having belief in the Almighty God who sits on high. Understanding the primary source of where supernatural powers are originated from, plays an important role in receiving a blessing or miracle. One important factor to keep in mind when praying for a blessing is to put forth one's best effort in whatever God ask of one to do . When enough roadways are placed behind you on this Christian journey, blessings begin to come forth. There are many supernatural gifts that are sent from the heavens above, in order to be a blessing to Christians below on earth. When God becomes content and satisfied enough with the praise and glory hes given in return, miracles began to perform. Miracles will keep pouring out, until ones cup has run over. Continue to put into effect the spirit of giving. Its more to give than it is to receive in the eyesight of God. God will continue to bless the people who are willing to give to another brother and sister in Christ. Giving comes from the heart. Something has to be felt on the inside, before it can be manifested on the outside. We must first give honor to God in all we say and do. Without him nothing is possible, or impossible.
Elizabeth I acceded to the throne in 1558, restoring the Protestant faith to England. At the heart of the new queen's court lay Elizabeth's bedchamber, closely guarded by the favoured women who helped her dress, looked after her jewels and shared her bed. Elizabeth's private life was of public, political concern. Her bedfellows were witnesses to the face and body beneath the make-up and elaborate clothes, as well as to rumoured illicit dalliances with such figures as Robert Dudley. Their presence was for security as well as propriety, as the kingdom was haunted by fears of assassination plots and other Catholic subterfuge. For such was the significance of the queen's body: it represented the very state itself. This riveting, revealing history of the politics of intimacy uncovers the feminized world of the Elizabethan court. Between the scandal and intrigue the women who attended the queen were the guardians of the truth about her health, chastity and fertility. Their stories offer extraordinary insight into the daily life of the Elizabethans, the fragility of royal favour and the price of disloyalty.
