Secret’s Old and New

father-and-child-hands

 

God always, always. ALWAYS has a timing for every individual! I am not talking about just in big things. I am talking even in the small things that we don’t think measure up to a hill of beans! At that moment divine intervention is happening, and someone needs to hear what God has laid on your heart. There is always a reason, and more often than not we are totally clueless!! I pray today that you will take the time to meditate in and on the Father!! You are precious, and you are sealed with His Holy Spirit!

Let me for a moment just say something to you a child of God! You are a fulfillment of scripture. You are a part of a covenant of old and new now that you have received Christ as the risen Savior! If you believe God sent His son to take the full wrath of God so, that we can be restored to our Heavenly Father. Jesus arose three days later defeating sin and in the second coming bringing justice and, doing away with death once and for all and the enemy; if you profess with your mouth and believe in your heart, soul, and mind, then you my friend are a spiritual son or daughter of the Living God. Like Abraham believing God (faith). God credited Abraham for righteousness! (Galatians 3:6-9)

Like Abraham believing God (faith). God credited Abraham for righteousness! (Galatians 3:6-9) So, you by finding God (faith) through the Son of God Jesus, and Jesus being the Messiah fully man while being fully God then you are a part of the ongoing fulfilment of the promise (covenant) with Abraham, and you are also most importantly under the new covenant of Jesus Christ!! Can you see that you are justified through the blood of Jesus Christ? You are a part of the plan even in the old and now the new covenant!! Praise God for his plan to redeem all humankind!

Last note never let the enemy whisper deceit into your ear! The only way to combat the enemy is through God’s word! It is truth and if something you are thinking or speaking does not pass through the word of God then toss it out! If it does then cherish and gird yourself up; even if it hurts your flesh ask Jesus to help apply this scripture to your life whatever that may be! Paul says in Hebrews 12:5-13 even the Lords discipline is a blessing and a mark that we are His!! Praise Jesus even when He has to discipline me most of all but, also you too as a good father does!!

Loving and praying for you all!! Keep up the good work and keep on fighting and growing!!

You have taken off the old

David-and-Goliath-2.jpg
See the problem with a lie is that you just don’t hurt yourself and the other person it has potential to harm double that. It starts to trickle down the individual telephone line and becomes something that you no longer recognize. That is the problem with a lie, and it starts out small then by the time it gets back around to the person it was about it has about ten more lies attached and formed into a 9 foot Goliath to tear down someone else. Well, we all know how it turned out for David. The point is when a lie comes taunting you, first know that we don’t wrestle flesh and blood but, Satan. Second, aim the Word of God straight at the head of that giant lie and watch how easy the head is destroyed and without a head, it can not live. Before we start, I want to remind you of what James says about the mouth.
James 3:5-6
In the same way, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it boasts of great things. Consider how small a spark sets a great forest on fire. 6The tongue also is a fire, a world of wickedness among the parts of the body. It pollutes the whole person, sets the course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
First, God’s protection and promise
Isaiah 54:17
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Second, aim for that head and throw that truth right at em! We know where lies stem from
John 8:44
44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Thirdly, stand up in your identity in Christ Jesus which has renewed your mind, heart, and soul through the Word of God! Reaffirm the standard of God not for Him but, to remind you who you are in Christ Jesus! Which we need to do every day; put on the full Armor of God every day!
Colossians 3:9
9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices
Finally, pray for yourself and ask God to keep your tongue being deceitful this reminds me of Psalm 120:2-3
2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, From a deceitful tongue. 3 What shall be given to you, and what more shall be done to you, You deceitful tongue?

You are Salt

I have thought long and hard about what I am going to say. I am praying that people would receive this in love but truth. I am not implying all churches when I am referring to “the church” I am referring to the family of God the whole body of believers; just to make that clear. Something is happening to the body of Christ, and honestly, I have just been in tear’s all morning.  I see the compromise of God’s Word, I see hatred, I see blindness, I see the gospel being preached but little or no grace is coming with that. The Holy Spirit is where the grace of God is activated. Christ’s spirit has been given to enable us to live GRACE.

We fail as the body to teach about the Holy Spirit effectively. I am no expert, believe me, many godly men are gifted to teach on the Holy Spirit and His active role in the divine Trinity.  We make confessions and creeds of the Holy Spirit in our song’s, and we read about the marvelous works the Holy Spirit enabled the early church to do. We have no support whatsoever in scripture; Believe me, I have searched diligently praying and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal to me where in scripture these gifts located in (1 Corinthians 12) through the Holy Spirit have been extinguished and boxed up and died with the execution of the Apostle Paul.

This is where I believe and many other’s who are frightened to say anything or ask the hard questions because of fear of fellow man. Life throws us hard situations with the hard question’s to ask. It is not to quarrel; it is not to be defensive, but it is to engage our minds, hearts, and souls back to the Word of God and stand firmly on the Word. This is the point of the Holy Spirit to engage in question’s and answer’s and also in just an ordinary relationship listen, laugh, and cry. But something strange and wrong is happening to the beautiful body of Christ. Somewhere along the line, we have accepted a lie spurred not by people but by dark and evil forces that God does not do or use the Holy Spirit in this way ( I have enough reverent fear in my body to be 100 percent confident of that) I am reminded of Hebrews 10:31). We believe what a man believes and says over what our King and Savior says in the Word.

We have justified not following the Word of God to the letter because we are super quick to defend and argue our truth. We sadly break down the Word because we are justifying and hiding from the Spirit of truth and well when you do that you grieve, stifle, push away the Holy Spirit, so His leading in your life so distant. I am not saying I don’t get it wrong because honestly, I do. I believe we all do at certain times. I will never forget where Jesus rescued me from. Jesus, keeps that part of my heart very tender and keeps me very aware. Not to harm me but to spur me to help the brokenhearted, to be soothing and comforting to a hurting heart. I can not do this! I in my flesh am not a right person. I can be sweet and kind and loving only through the Helper, The Counselor, The Holy Spirit. That is what sets us apart church. We are so depraved in our flesh, utterly wicked and wrong. We can not think good, act good, be good, love properly, serve correctly, evangelize effectively, teach effectively without The Holy Spirit.

The scriptures say so much about The Holy Spirit being a part of the Godhead. Sadly the Body of believers and, all the world that Christ laid His life down, reminding you Jesus was fully man and God and, could have brought down the army of heaven to deliver Him but He chose us instead!

The Body (church) sadly has forgotten His power and how marvelous His Spirit is! Two scriptures that the Lord through the Holy Spirit has been saying to me 2 Timothy 3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these! But also Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, he who accuses them day and night before our God.

We will never overcome the evil one, or in this verse, he is named the accuser of the brethren, without the power of The Holy Spirit. If we refuse to be disciplined and trained up by the Holy Spirit, then the accuser of the brethren does just that he accuses and spur’s accusations, and he is doing it wildly through the body of Christ. The enemy has taken the believer’s captive in the net of unbelief and complacency that even if the Holy Spirit was to be poured out upon the body would we identify it being from God or the enemy? Or are we so worried about what we want to do that we have become veiled by our flesh? I can only answer for myself, and I know I need to strengthen my walk and relationship with Christ.

I am praying for the Body not to fall into the snare of being used not only to accuse the brethren but to lead God’s people captive in their understanding of God.Look that position is filled by Satan that is what he does and prompt’s people to do. If we are to rebuke another, we are to do it gently and with great love and compassion, lest we fall into the same snare ourselves. We must walk every day in Spirit (The HOLY SPIRIT) and in Truth (THE WORD OF GOD) if we fail to do so we stifle the Spirit, and without the Spirit, we can not hear, see, or use our spiritual gifts. I am asking God to cover this message with grace and truth.

Lord, let the hearts and souls that need this challenging subject to see and receive it. Lord, strengthen our churches in the knowledge of the Holy Spirit and also the knowledge of your Word the only truth there is and ever will be. Lord, may these words bring glory and honor to You! You gave them to me and may they return to You with a harvest. Lord, inspire and make our Pastor’s capable and mighty. Lord, we ask that you would give them a double portion of your anointing and pour your spirit without measure upon us all. Lord, the days are evil, and I fear that most are flexing under the pressure of standing on your truth. Lord, renew in us a greater knowledge and understanding of your word and enable us through your Spirit to carry out what you have set before us. In Jesus Mighty and Powerful name, I bring these requests to You. Amen.

If we continue down this path, I do reverently fear that many will fall away from the faith because they do not know who are God truly is because of the lack of teaching in the church. Reminds me of Paul’s reminder to Timothy talking about Hymenaeus and Philetus teaching that the resurrection had already passed, their opinions got them to deviate from the truth and led many away.You can find this in 2 Timothy 2:17-18 See we can innocently be led by our flesh to navigate our opinions instead of God’s truth. We must be careful and diligent to be trusted with the gospel and entrusted to teach the fullness to the next generation. “See our deception can lead to the inception of innocents.” or as Paul say’s carnal Christian’s which are just babies in Christ meaning they can only handle small feedings of the word of God. We were never supposed to stay in this state. Unfortunately, carnal Christians often in today’s church never turn into mature Christian’s, and that leads to disease and decay of truth being spoken.It’s not a time to be far away from the Lord if you are good news is you have a Bible, and you have a mouth please ask Him to show you and, help you to understand. He is faithful to show me; I know He will be faithful to show you as well.

“See our deception can lead to the inception of innocent ones.”

We Fail, He Prevails!

When man fails and goes astray, God faithfully prevails through His mercy and grace.

Never forget that what was meant to harm you, God will use it for good and make you and several others prosper when the intent was to snuff you out. We might not recognize it or want the provision that God has commanded, but none the less it is what God ordained. We push forward looking back to see the providence of God! Knowing that God is totally aware and in control at all times! Meditate on these two verses today! (Below at the bottom of page) Get to know the character of God.

I am not sure about the journey you have been on, but I know pain and suffering and injustices are committed to humans every day. I know that it seems unfair and looks like you have the disadvantage. That could not be further from the truth. See God is a God who see’s, hear’s, and know’s! He sees the injustice; He hears the cries of pain that the injustice caused, He knows the anguish that the injustice caused. He actively and swiftly is seeking justice for us in the situation. To deliver us from evil. Remember when the evil was committed it did not surprise God! No, He jumped into action and commanded your rescue be sent; He gave orders to His angels concerning you (Psalm 91) His ways are greater, and His thoughts are higher than ours so we can not lean on our own understanding! We do not have the mind of God, but we can have faith and trust that God is who He says He is!

Friend, I want to tell you today that no matter what He will see you through. It might very well be painful at times and difficult at times to swallow. Might even be that we fall and fail, trip and stumble but I do know this whatever and wherever the path takes you it is for your good, and it is to glorify Him! It is to be a light in a dark world! It is to help lead someone to Jesus. We just have to remember this is not our home and our Father sees and knows what we have been through to bring Him glory and honor! Don’t give up! Today, know that there is someone out there in the world today that is so sorry that there was an injustice done to you! Not just Jesus but me! Today for whatever reason know that behind this keyboard and computer screen, someone is typing a love letter from Jesus to you!

I as a sister in Christ am truly sorry for the evil in the world that has been and is being inflicted but nothing compared to the love of our Heavenly Father! The Father that sent His son to be offered up and delivered into evil’s hands, killed for the purpose of taking sin upon Him, to shed his precious and perfect blood so that there would be a way for us to be restored back to the God who made us!

By doing this, Jesus broke the chains of sin and evil and overcame sin, and the world to have your heart! There will be evil in this world, but God has defeated and overcome this world through the Savior of the world Jesus by His body and by His precious blood! By the resurrection you declared victory! Thank you, Father!! We are thankful that Jesus has overcome it all for us! We will never understand the cost!! But we can always see that you truly love us. Awaiting the second coming when Christ restore’s earth and brings justice and judgment with Him! Yes, I understand the meaning of the great and terrible day of The Lord in a new way; great and wonderful for the people who trust and know Jesus but terrible and horrible for those who deny and refuse Him. So please would you, if you have not already accepted Jesus as the Savior and Lord of all? Cry out His name, and He will save your soul from complete and utter separation from God eternally. That is the true death and that is what makes hell well, so much like hell.

You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.

Genisis 50:20 NLT

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Romans 8:28 NLT

How to Remove the Mark

Not dealing with insecurity is like you wearing bright red mark on your forehead and not expecting anyone to see it or react to it. Oh, everyone sees it and knows about it, but God is the only one that can remove it and restore you back. Go to the living water He is the only one who can cleanse that mark. Go ahead! He’s been right there waiting. Sometimes chasing you down as a Mother would chase a toddler to get that red mark off of your forehead. It’s time you stop running.

When we allow insecurity to advance the truth of the Word of God, we are allowing ourselves to be entranced by the enemy.

It’s about time we stop letting the enemy fuel and engulf us with the emotion of insecurity. We can get so far into the feeling of insecurity that we will allow advancement over the Holy Spirit; replacing it with the entrancement of the enemy deceit and blowing the situation out of the water! You see that is the enemies whole plan to exalt any knowledge over Christ and keep you in a pit of despair. Rendered useless and helpless, fragile, and weak. The next time you feel the emotion of insecurity run to the Word of God and allow every thought to be captured by Christ Jesus! (2 Corinthians 10:5)

I am praying you let the Lord have his way! He just wants honesty then He can remove that mark! Remember God already knows He see’s the heart! You honestly can not hide, and if you choose to wait, He is patient enough to wait.

1 Samuel 16:7

7 But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

 

You just Soar, Sing and Fish

You know what they say ” Birds of a feather flock together.” Nothing could be truer. But God made bird’s, He made them resiliently and Thank God for molting! The point is sometimes it’s time for the feather to fall away from the bird so newness can take place.

See every bird molt’s in their own time. The problem though is even when we’re done molting we get stuck or comfy in the coop and wait for another one to take off, but you see it might not be time for another to take off! It might be your time! See those new feathers bring flight and, at times beautiful colors/designs.

Be patient while those feather’s that are falling out we are uncomfortable, and well you just look a hot mess, but when that new feather’s come in they bring a new use and new beauty to the bird. See, when we are done molting, we are okay to move out of the nest or coop. We are not completely ready to fly until our new feathers come in, but in due season we will soar again.

See some of us are eagles, songbirds, or maybe even a pelican trying to live in a chicken coop or a parakeet’s cage. It isn’t going to work, see an eagle, or little songbird and yes even a pelican have a particular job. If you pin them up in a coop, they become like chickens or other domesticated fowl. See chickens, and other domestic fowl were given a job to be on the supper table or for entertainment. Eagles, songbirds, and pelicans were meant to Soar, Sing, and Fish!

Listen, don’t mistake yourself for a chicken or a domesticated bird that lives its life in a coop or cage. God made you wild, He made you soar like eagles, He made us sing the song of your salvation, He made you fish for spiritual food and maybe even lead a few to the fish so they can feed themselves. Listen people are like wild birds, we were never meant to be caged. We are useless if we are caged and bound up outside of our environment.

 

I’ve seen some eagles that sadly never take off because they are trying to live in chicken coops never satisfied because they were eating chicken scratch and over growing the coop.

baldeagles-620x413

I have seen some songbirds never singing because they have flown into a coop by accident and found themselves frantic and panicked and taking on the habits of chickens, so they conform thinking this life is terrifying!

13496364165_8fa2af6525_c

 

 

 

I’ve seen pelicans trying to be satisfied with chicken scratch and pecking around in the grass and starve to death because they felt like they lost too many feathers and were stuck but also never suppose to fish even though down deep they knew they were dying and starving.

Those are some crazy pictures!! Honestly, we would laugh ourselves silly if we saw any of these wild birds trying to live with our domesticated birds. So let me ask you this then if God made you wild why are we settling for caged, cooped, afraid Chicken Little ” They Sky is Falling” lives in Jesus Christ?

So if you are an eagle soar, if your new feathers have come in! If you are a beautiful songbird free and wild, then sing for the Lord; if your new feathers have come in. If you are an awkward Pelican in your “now” environment but a terrific fisherman in your environment then take off and Fish!! Take off and find the body of water you were meant to fish; if your new feathers have come in FLY!!!!

Leave that cage or coop! See Bird’s of a feather or certain kind do flock together. The problem is some birds are never meant to flock together. They actually end up frustrated, depressed, lonely, starving and sometimes die because they refuse to be what God called them too! They might have been raised with chicken’s, and parakeet’s and it was good, but now we are done molting and we have gotten our flying feather’s and it’s time to fly the coop or cage and get out there and do what God has called us to do! The coop’s or cage safety guarded you until now, but now you are big enough to guard the coop or cage! So do it!

You are Ready

In 1 Samuel 17 we read about David and Goliath, what actually just came straight off the page to me was 1 Samuel 17:28 Eliab, David’s oldest brother. Eliab’s anger grew toward David when he heard what David had said to the others.

David had boldly said in verse above Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
David was stating why should we fear a man that is not in covenant with Elohim Hayyrim (the living God) Eliab even went on to say he knew  David’s prideful and disrespectful bold heart is what brought him from the sheep fields to say this. David’s response to Eliab was “Is there not a cause?”
What I really got from this scripture is that even your own family or even the family of God will be used by the enemy to discourage, hurt, and minimize you and your calling. Don’t be surprised. Some of my greatest giants have not been Goliath’s (enemy) but have been right in and through the family of God or people who are in relationships with me (Eliab’s). When this happens, remember David’s response in verse 29 and then action 1 Samuel 17:30 Then he turned from him toward another and said the same thing; and these people answered him as the first ones did.
See sometimes you have to just have to meet your Eliab with a question. Is there not a cause? Then turn from them and toward the calling Jesus has for you, proclaiming Jesus’s gospel and making disciples. They do not understand the training and grooming that has taken place in the field of faith. There will always be the accusers of the brethren. But remember just as David was in the shepherd’s field. God sent a Bear and a Lion for David to slay and retrieve the lamb’s from their mouth’s to train David in courage and strength so he would one day throw a stone in a slingshot that would slay a 9-foot giant and defeat the enemy. So if you find yourself up against a 9-foot giant reflect on the field of faith and what you have learned in those experiences. Were you not victorious? Has God not prepared you already? Why are you still standing there, throw that stone (request) in that slingshot (prayer) and watch that Goliath (enemy) fall to his defeat! Move on into your calling and take what God has called you too even if you do run into some Eliab’s on the way 😉 you can do it! We have the living God on our side! Praise God!
Lord, you have equipped me to take down my Goliath! You have trained and prepared me so that I will be full of courage and strength! Lord, who dares to defy the Living God by standing in your way? Who questions the Lord when He has chosen? Thank you, Lord, for speaking to this wandering heart and giving me faith to push! All glory and honor are yours, Father! In Jesus Name Amen!

Worst Compromise

This morning I am pleading with the body of Christ. Let’s not lose sight and confidence in the Scripture! Please! Asking God this morning to cause us to not justify our agendas by twisting the meaning of God’s truth. Let’s take the charge that Paul says over and over again to Timothy “Do not be ashamed of the gospel” Let’s commit to the Word of God and not doctrines of churches or people or worse the enemy! Praying for our hearts minds and soul are to fear and love the Word of God! In Jesus name Amen! Let’s not fall away from the truth and turn to lies.

The Best Sight

12492-080214-bvotd-luke-18-42-43-jesus-receive-sight-faith-healed-followed-praising-god-wide-1200w-tn

 

Jesus came to give us sight! Both physical and most of all spiritually. I want us to pray this morning. Lord open my eyes and ears to your truth, Lord give us pure hearts to see and hear your truth so that all spiritual darkness can be unveiled. I speak that into a life today. That today would be the day the scales would fall off your eyes, and you would have a good understanding of who Jesus Christ is. In Jesus’ name Amen.

In Luke this morning I saw a verse that stood out to me (Luke 24:31)
Then their eyes were opened, and they knew Him, and He vanished from their sight.
Now just so you have a better understanding and the context Jesus had already been crucified, dead and now risen. He had already appeared to the two women, and unto Peter, and now to two followers walking and talking about the Lord Jesus reportedly being resurrected while walking to Emmaus which is about 7 miles northwest of Jerusalem. Jesus asked them a question who are you discussing? They tell the risen Savior they are discussing Him! Jesus chided them for not understanding or believing. The followers should have known from the Old Testament what had happened! It wasn’t until after Jesus had broken bread that their eyes were opened and suddenly recognized Him. Their experience with Christ Jesus caused them to run back to Jerusalem and affirm the Ressurection. But even after the disciples had three reports they still did not understand or see how! So we know that Jesus once again appears and eats a broiled piece of fish to prove He is not a Ghost, also appearing with His wounds.
What I understood from this is Christ could appear right in front of us, He could send someone to give us a message from Him. He could eat with us but if we do not know His word we would not truly have the spiritual eyes, mind, or heart to understand, see, hear from our Risen Savior Jesus Christ. If we want to recognize our glorious Savior we have to read His word! So in time we will see Him in everywhere and everything! I’m praying against that veil that is covering your eyes. That the power of Christ will lift and expose His truth to you; He has risen! He tore the veil for you and me! If anyone lacks wisdom and understanding let him ask God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)

When will you break bread and have your eyes opened and have an understanding? I can give you advice that is about it, but when you sit down with Christ and ask I believe with all my heart He will give you spiritual eyes and give you the understanding of who He is! We know as Christ followers

” For we walk by faith , not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7.

 

 

Jesus is active and alive through the counselor also known as the Holy Spirit. So we might not ever physically walk with Christ on this earth, but spiritually we do. He abides in our hearts, mind, and the defender of our souls. So we know by faith that Jesus the Son of God but fully man, also sinless He remained perfect, came to die on a crucifix given up to death for man’s rebellion against God (Sin). Not only did He receive punishment for all humankind but, He was placed in a tomb and sealed. He arose the third day and conquered death and sin declaring victory and restoring man back into eternal life with Him. After appearing to over 500 people Jesus Christ ascended back into heaven, Jesus the Son of God is seated at the right hand of God the Father. Alive and glorious and one day coming back to rule upon this earth. Thank you, Lord! Let us share and glorify You and You alone. In Jesus’s name Amen

MyLord,My Strength and MySong

  • First, I want to just praise God and stand in awe of what He is doing in my life and in yours. About one year ago, I remember feeling as if my life was desperately out of control and I was surely not going to be intact through these storms that seemed to be so enormous. Around August 14th 2015 I found out that my best friend had been found on the stoop of her porch, left to die from an overdose and was in a coma. My head was spinning and I remember little after that phone call. See my friend was addicted to drugs and alcohol, and four of us friends had faithfully and with much long suffering had walked this walk with her. We had seen her in jail, in rehab centers, in court hearings, in a labor and delivery bed, at her work, you get the picture. We loved this woman. There were times that we weren’t given a choice to be there by her. There were times we had to separate because of illegal activity. Never once did we want to go but none the less we did. I look back and see the months leading up to her death and I know and can see the tender mercies of God dealing with five best friends. But that was not all that made me feel like my life was out of control and it was. Oh! I hold no control and that is the beauty. The same day that J passed I found out that my husband’s job of eighteen years was over. We had till November 1st to have a job for the both of us. It reminded me of the book of Esther when Haman issued a decree that by the end of the year this mass killing of the Israelites would take place. But not soon, eleven months after the decree was posted. That’s torment! That is how we felt like a doomsday was looming. So looking back a year later in the midst of severe grief from a loved one and a complete and utter loss of income, I felt hopeless. I remember knowing God was with me but not understanding what to do. So one morning I felt angry, not at Him but at this world, and at this pain that was exploding out of my chest. Physically hurting my chest at times. Not to mention casting my anxiety about the job loss. I set down and I said Jesus! Help! I need you like never before! That’s it, no fancy prayer, no constant prayer, I just cried out. I felt led to turn to Isaiah 12 not a verse the whole chapter and I know Jesus whispered to me I am, who I am. I am the Lord your God I will never leave not forsake you. Draw from the well of your salvation and remain in me. I am close to the brokenhearted and blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted. Trouble may come to you in this world but do not be afraid for I have overcome the world. Is there anyone who is like me? I just smiled and wept I knew in that moment that God would turn this around and use it for His glory. He is faithful and so good. Let me share what happened next. I love to write. I love to express myself in this capacity and I am more effective in written that in verbal for now. When I turned to Isaiah chapter 12 I saw the header it said a hymn of praise. I just smiled and thought ok??? But I continued to read and I saw in Isaiah 12:2  My Strength My Song, that stood out to me, and at this time I had been asking God for the name of the blog and the Facebook page name. I exclaimed “Is this my pages name?” I believe with all my heart I knew this was the name. I honestly felt like He was just shining on me and I never felt so much love in my life. I asked again “Lord, if I am outside of your will for my life, take this thought and desire out of my heart and mind.” This desire has intensified and is burning one year later. Why I wanted to share this is to tell someone out there that feels desolate and hopeless and weary that God is shining over you in your moment of need. He really is and He is wanting to do something exquisite and gorgeous in and with your broken life. The key is that no matter what we are facing we never fail to realize that He is ever present and close to us! He gave me beauty from ashes. From the fire you will be refined. This page and blog would have never come if I did not ask God to help! To help me get through this intact but to not be consumed in it. Out of that cry was the birth of something beautiful in me and in my life. It is my calling and it is my mission to help other women understand the Word of God and to help them know who they are in Christ Jesus. Listen sister, there is nothing like freedom in the valley’s and the mountains in this life. I pray that you know true freedom, I pray you are not a believer captive in bondage to sin, I pray that you are not lost and blind to the love and grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you don’t know Him personally would you like too? If you would would you please cry out to Jesus Christ and tell Him that you acknowledge and agree that you need Him to be the Lord over your life, that you need Him to invade every ounce of your heart! That you believe that He is the son of God and that He died and hung on the cross for you and all of your sin. That you are believing through faith that He was burried in a tomb and rose again on the third day. That you know He is King of Kings, the defeater of death. The promised Messiah! If you prayed any of that would you confess with your mouth That Jesus is Lord over your life as your Savior. I pray if you prayed that you would find a church and get under the umbrella of God’s word and have a hunger and love for Jesus like no other. I pray the Holy Spirit which now lives in your heart will guide and direct you all the days of your life. In Jesus Christ mighty name Amen! 

    This is the post from,my page this morning on Facebook…… 

    This verse in scripture is what inspired the page. God gave the name and almost 1 year later here we are. I know you hear me Lord, I know you see me Lord. Thank you Father for giving me such a beautiful platform to proclaim the gospel but also to continue to equip me in my purpose. Lord, as the world grows dimmer. Your light will shine splendidly. Lord, I want to glorify you and be the vessel that you mold to do your good works through. Thank you most of all for being my salvation, where just like the woman at the well I can joyfully draw water from the well of salvation. Isaiah 12:3. This verse is written upon my heart forever. Think of the woman at the well and as your thinking of her think of her saying Come and see! I met a man that told me all the things I ever did John 4:29. What a glorious day it was when we met the man but fully God Jesus Christ that loved us still even as sinners.Roman 5:8. Our God’s love is vast and eternal. Praise you Lord! 🙌🙌🙌🙌
