My best Yes!

“Go in peace. Your journey has the LORD’s approval” Judges 18:6.

Some time ago, I vowed to say “yes” to God to anything that he would want me to do. I committed to boldly step out in faith–even in fear. My most recent “yes” led me to begin this blog. Throughout this journey I have experienced much heartache, frustration and discouragement; but the lessons I have learned have been essential to moving forward in what God has called me to do.

Had I not walked through the valley–I would not be able to declare the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness; because I know where he has rescued me from and what he has done for me in the past, I believe him for all that he has promised me in the future. So amid disappointments and even resistance, I press forward giving God my “best yes” because I trust him–I love him and I know that he is for Me!

“The Lord said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled” Jeremiah 1:12.

Heavenly Father,

This morning I would like to take a moment to thank you for giving me the strength and courage to continue moving forward in all that you have called me to do. I pray that all those reading this post will also be encouraged to continue moving forward in whatever you may be calling them to do. Help us to understand that we are here on this earth on assignment and one day we will meet with you face-to-face, and it will be too late for excuses. Ignite a fire in us Lord and please give us the boldness to always give you our “best yes!” In Jesus’ mighty and precious name we pray. ❤️

Submissive Wife 👑

“Let the king give her royal position to someone else who is better than she; then all the women will respect their husbands, from the least to the greatest” (Esther 1:19c, 1:20b, NIV).

In the book of Esther we learn of a young woman rich in faith, who wins favor in the eyes of many important people, including King Xerxes. Esther is then chosen by the king to replace disgraced Queen Vashti; but ultimately chosen by God to save her Jewish people.

As I reflect on the events that transpired In the book of Esther, I am left to wonder, “How did Queen Vashti get it all wrong?”

On the evening she found herself dethroned, she had been busy hosting a banquet for the women in the royal palace of King Xerxes. Queen Vashti had it all: beauty, prestige and wealth; but she lacked reverence and respect for her husband. Her disobedience and inability to submit to the order placed by God resulted resulted in her being stripped of her royal crown and prestigious position, never again allowed to enter the presence of the king.

“But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God” 1 Corinthians 11:3, ESV.

“Everything that you wish a woman would be, be that woman” Lisa Bevere.

Heavenly Father,

Help us to become the submissive wives you created us to be. Although this task may seem a lot easier said than done, we know that anything is possible  with Christ. Lord please help us to be women who are quick to listen and slow to speak. May we gain favor in your eyes and see changes in our husbands as we honor you with our lives. Help us to get this right Lord! In Jesus’ name we pray. ❤️

Humility

In God’s kingdom, there is almost always a breakdown before a breakthrough. Anytime that God is ready to use us, promote us or take us to higher level, we can almost expect the enemy to fire back–with lies, confusion and discouragement. And it is not uncommon for the enemy to use those closest to us and those we care about most to hurt us.

But the Bible instructs us to, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love” Eph 4:2, NIV. And teaches us that, “it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense” Proverbs 19:11b. For God alone is our vindicator.

Heavenly Father,

My prayer today is that you would help us to understand that we only further delay our own blessings when we attempt to exalt ourselves in the eyes of others. May our lives serve as a living testimony, winning souls for the kingdom by how others see us living, talking, walking and reacting to different situations. For your word teaches us that you will reward us for what we do in private, when we believe no one is looking. We love you Lord and may our lives be pleasing before your eyes. In Jesus’ mighty and precious name we pray ❤️

Quiet Time

“Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life” 1 Thessalonians 4:11a.

As there is a season to sow and a season to reap, there is a season to be silent and a season to speak. Not every God-given dream is to be shared, sometimes they are just reminders that He loves us and is there.

Take time to be quiet in His presence🕊

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for another day of life and another opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ with a hurting and broken world. Please give us the discernment and wisdom to know when to stay quiet and when to speak. Keep our hearts pure, our eyes above the storms and our ears attentive to your voice. We love you Lord–In Jesus’ name we pray! 💜

Biblical Counsel

Questions and Answers signpost

To whom or to what sources do you turn when in need of guidance and direction?

In the book of Job, we read of some of Job’s dearest friends offering poor counsel and advice during a difficult season in Job’s life. But it is inspiring to see that amid all of Job’s pain, poor counsel and uncertainty, he chooses to turn to God for guidance and direction.

“Teach me, and I will be quiet; show me where I have been wrong” Job 6:24, NIV.

Not every situation requires counseling; we are given free counseling in the word of God~ Pastor Rene Munoz. ❤️

Heavenly father,

Thank you Lord for another day of life. Please teach us your ways and how to live a life pleasing in your sight. May your voice and truth guide and direct our paths. Help us to get this right Lord. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray!

Let it Go

IMG_1848

Let it go, for you do not know what tomorrow brings. Love hard; and forgive quickly–never allowing bitterness the opportunity to take root in your heart.

“And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins” Mark 11:25 (NIV).

Heavenly Father,

Thank you Lord for another precious day of life. Help us to understand that life is short with tomorrow not being promised to anyone. Teach us your ways Lord–that we may represent you well in this broken world. Help us to be a people that love hard–as you love; and let us not miss the opportunity to let those we love know just how much they mean to us. In Jesus mighty name we pray. ❤️
