Taking the Leap

“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” Proverbs 3:6.

Heavenly Father,

I ask that tonight you speak a word of confirmation to all those in need of direction. Help us to block out all of the loud and irrelevant noise– that we may be able to hear that still small voice. We know that you would never lead us astray and above all there is still power in the name above all names–King Jesus please continue to make a way, where there seems to be no way. We love you Lord and in Jesus’ name we pray.

Obedience will take you places you could never ask, dream or imagine! πŸŒ΅πŸ¦‹πŸŽ

The Lord who sustains me!

“You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do turn” Psalm 18: 35-36, NIV.

Heavenly Father,

Oftentimes I reminisce on the simpler days I used to live. Please help me Lord to always remain content, wise and strong. Although my feet stumble you don’t allow me to fall. You uphold me with your mighty right hand. You gently whisper into my heart–reminding me who You say I Am. Your beloved daughter, called and equipped, prepared for spiritual battle, positioned and chosen for such a time as this! My I continue to find favor in your eyes–all the days of my life. Lord please keep me feet from slipping or wandering astray–in Jesus’ precious & mighty name I pray! πŸ’™

Entering into a new season

He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths, as he has promised” Psalm 23:3.

Excitement, nervousness and butterflies are what I feel inside. Lately life has felt like I’m on an airplane rising high, with lots of turbulence and bumpy roads, and few moments of stillness before dropping low. A new season; a new assignment and off again we go! Learning to trust you even when I am uncomfortable and completely out of my comfort zone. Refusing to allow doubt or worry to rise, remembering the calling I have upon my life. Entering a new season–on assignment to share the light of Christ. ✨

He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers” Psalm 1:3

When God says…No!

And David said to his servants, β€œIs the child dead?” They said, β€œHe is dead.” Then David got up from the ground-washed himself, put on lotions, and changed his clothes. He went to the Tabernacle and worshiped the LORD. Samuel 19:20.

Heavenly Father,

Help us to be content with your no...and understand that your answers may not always be a yes. Regardless you are a good father–and we trust that you know what is best. May we praise & worship in the midst of pain and heartache because we know that with these actions you are pleased. Let us not look back, or to the sides, but continue running this race with endurance towards the prize of running into the arms of our savior Jesus Christ!

There is great joy and hope in His…No. Even on our worst days–He is still in control! πŸ’™

“Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and he went to her and lay with her. So she gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon. Now the LORD loved the child” 2 Samuel 12:24.

Who do you live to please?

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10.

I am guilty of having fallen into the trap of becoming a “people pleaser”. Having found favor and sudden promotion within the workplace, I found myself knee-deep into the trap of slaving for man and seeking the approval of superiors. But I thank God for His grace–that even through pain He would remind me that I am to labor first for the Lord–for He is the one who opens and closes doors. And with each new opportunity He provides, I am on an assignment to save lives. Lord, help me to shine brightly wherever I go–that through my life–you others will come to know…

“Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there” Psalm 146:3.

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! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

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 Lordβ€”For there is almost always a “Breakdown before a Breakthrough!” Continue reading “Breakdown before the Breakthrough”
