Do it Afraid!

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go” Joshua 1:9.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for loving me the way that you do. Your love overwhelms me and brings me to my knees. Who but you alone Lord could be so gracious and attentive to all of my needs? Thank you for lifting and believing in me when I am unable to believe in myself–help me Lord to represent you well. Where you lead, I will follow. In fear, I will step out in faith–and Do it Afraid! 🦋🌵🎍

The God of Suddenly!

“The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom” Deuteronomy 28:12-13 NIV.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for your supernatural peace which surpasses all human understanding. I pray that you would remove all fear from my mind and remind me who I am in Christ–hand-picked, chosen, loved and redeemed. Help me to walk through every door you open, with confidence knowing it is you who made a way in the wilderness just for me. I trust you Lord with every aspect of my life–May your presence saturate me on this day and for your glory may I shine! ✨

By Faith we Fly…

“Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous” Joshua 1:9.

Lord,

Thank you for the purpose in the pain; Thank you for the storms you allow to shift things into place. Thank you for all of the circumstances that bring us to our knees; Thank you for this new season of opportunities, joy and peace. Thank you for equipping us with the wisdom & courage to know when to Be Still and when to step out in faith. Thank you for ordering our steps– and always allowing all of the pieces to fall perfectly into place! 💕💕💕💕💕

Fearless Faith

“Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come” Proverbs 31:25 JKB.

Chasing after a dream in my heart–on this new journey I prepare to embark. Stepping completely out of my comfort zone, letting go of the only security I know. Holding onto a promise that I heard you speak, running with fearless faith, believing you will provide for all of my needs. Not doubting for even a moment that what you have promised I will not see–nor regretting for a second that when you called, I answered, “Here I am Lord use me!” Allowing you to guide my steps along the path of peace. 💕

“Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe” Proverbs 2:11. 🌵

Breakdown before the Breakthrough

“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NIV)

Recently I found myself in the midst of a sudden, severe and difficult storm. I had been persecuted, falsely accused and even ridiculed. I wrestled with feelings of resentment, anger and betrayal. With my eyes swelled up with tears and a heavy heart I whispered, “I trust you Lord!”

The storm did not end when I prayed that simple prayer. In fact, I still find myself within the storm, but I remain confident in knowing that my steps are ordained by the Lord—For there is almost always a “Breakdown before a Breakthrough!” Continue reading “Breakdown before the Breakthrough”

When a mother kneels in Prayer…

“My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance”

1 Samuel 2:1. 💜

Heavenly Father,

Nothing is impossible for you Lord! You are a God of “suddenly” and “suddenly” we will see all that you have promised come to be–your words will never return void or fall to the ground. Thank you Lord for all that you have done, all that you are doing and for the fulfilled promises that are to come. We trust you Lord! In Jesus’ mighty name we pray.

God

He will open doors…

“And the Lord said…This very thing that you have spoken I will do, for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” Exodus 33:17

I feel it in my heart you are about to move–in a way that only youcan do. Please make a way where there seems to be no visible way through–that those who do not believe will then be able to see and know that you alone are in control!

Obedience is the key, that unlocks the floodgates of blessings. I stand positioned and ready to receive–please more of you Lord and less of me! ❤️

God

Unequally yoked?

Praying for all of those struggling and torn between the pursuit of Christ and the disbelief of their husbands and wives. My prayer is that the veil may soon be torn from their eyes–that they may testify to a life transformed by the power of Christ. There is No heart too heavy, hard or cold that God is not able to grab ahold. Believing that “my story” will soon fill many hearts with peace, joy and hope and serve as a reminder that God was, still is and will always be In Control! 💕💕💕💕💕

“Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

Preparing for the Purpose

BB2F6775-EAA0-44E5-B875-CA93539CB0E0Years ago, the Lord first spoke to me and told me that I would write, and that many people would be saved through my writings. He has since given me a powerful testimony to share and revealed to my first book title, but I have struggled with not knowing how or where to even begin writing my testimony. A couple of days ago, I found myself beyond  frustrated after having spent hours searching for ideas on how to begin writing, searching for Christian publishers and literary agents. I decided I would leave it all in God’s hands and wait for him to send me someone to help—I was completely out of my league with this whole idea of writing a book. Maybe I would just pursue my Masters in Nursing degree—and stick to what I know!

A day later as I sat in Sunday’s service at church, I searched my emails and smiled as I came across my daily bible verse, “Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does” 1 Chronicles 16:24. I knew the Lord was speaking, but still I prayed for further confirmation. And boy did He deliver!

As the sermon ended, I made my way to the alter for prayer. The Holy Spirit had been moving strongly throughout our service, and I just needed to hear from God. And he delivered right on time, just as my heart had been desiring he would.

“I am waiting on You, you say you are waiting on me, but I am waiting on you to take a step of faith, as you take a step I will move with you.” 💜

Thank you Lord—that you never show up too early, and you never show up too late. Please give me the wisdom, courage and strength to fulfill all that you have called me to do. Even in fear—I will step out in Faith. This I pray in Jesus’ mighty  name.

An Obedient Heart ❤️

Do not work only while being watched, in order to please men, but as slaves of Christ, do God’s will from your heart. Ephesians 6:6.

My heart was convicted this morning as I read about a woman by the name of Fanny Cosby, who was born blind, yet dedicated her life towards working to expand God’s kingdom, writing about nine thousand hymns throughout her lifetime drawing many lost souls to the Lord. The interesting part is that many of her writings, she freely gave away to others, allowing them to publish without her ever receiving any credit. It did not matter to her who received the credit–what mattered was that God received the glory!

Heavenly Father,

This morning I surrender every area of my life into your hands, my fears, my dreams and all of my plans. I ask that you examine my heart and motives and remove anything that is toxic or unpleasing in your sight. Help me to walk in obedience in all that you ask me to do. Where you lead I will follow–less of me and more of you!

In Jesus’ precious name I pray. ❤️
