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. ❤️


Thanking Him in Advance!

“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living” Psalm 27:13. 🌺🌷🍃🌺🌱

Dear Lord,

This morning I awake, with a spirit of expectancy flowing through my veins. Thanking you in advance for the miracles that are to come. You spoke the words–and we believed and now we stand positioned and ready to receive. Thank you Lord for this new season of abundance, peace, joy and rest. For where ever you desire to lead–even in fear I surrender giving you my best Yes!

In Jesus’ mighty name I pray.🌺



But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God” Ruth 1:16.

Rejection is a part of life. We have all experienced it in one form or another. A parent who’s approval or love you were never able to gain, a partner who decided they no longer loved you or wished to remain in a committed relationship, or even a friend in whom you’d confided in–suddenly and unexpectedly backstabbed you. Rejection on any level, can be hurtful and painful.

What if Ruth had walked away?

I believe that God is closely watching how WE react to that offense, deep hurt and disappointment. Ruth got it Right! She refused to allow Naomi’s brokenness and bitterness to turn her away. She held on to the truth of what she had been taught and refused to let go of Naomi and her God.

Ruth rejected rejection! And the Lord honored Ruth’s obedience, faithfulness and heart of compassion with a generation of blessings! 🌷🌸🌷

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope” Romans 15:4.


The doors He opens, No man can close!


“What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name” Revelation 3:7-8, NIV.

This scripture reminds us, that the doors the Lord opens–no man can close. Our trust cannot be based on what we hear or see, but rather on what the Lord has spoken and promised. For he is faithful, just and a promise-keeper. He will do all that he has promised to do in the lives of his faithful children, because he is a rewarded of those who diligently seek him.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for all of the doors that you have opened, and for the ones that you have closed. Today I chose to mediate on all that you have promised—believing it already done in the precious name of your son. When evil tries to arise and hinder your plan, I will chose to place my trust in you!


I once was blind…


By: Lillian Madera

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” Hebrews 13:5

When God has a plan for our lives, He does not give up on us. Many times it is tempting to flee from God because its easier to run away from what God wants us to do or we may not like what He wants for our lives. But running away from God and His plans will only lead to pain.

During a season of storms in my life (one that I battled for many years) I was lost, broken, hurting. It had become the norm in my life but that was all I knew at the time. I remember crying and praying to God often to help me through it and to change this person that was hurting me and to reveal the truth to me. God spoke and told me what I needed to do and revealed the truth to me in more ways than one. But, to me, that wasn’t enough. I was in denial, I was blindsided and I was disobedient. Why? Because it is not what I wanted. What I wanted for my life is not what God wanted for me so I chose to flee from God. It was easier to follow the way of the world and difficult to follow God.

God brings pain into our lives to wake us up and get our attention. All we need to do is listen. Even if its not what we want in life, just listen.

My Father never gave up on me even through my disobedience. God spoke “someone is waiting for you on the other side of your disobedience”. All along when I was praying for God to change the person who was hurting me, someone was praying for me and I was praying for my future husband without knowing. God had a plan for me and He has a plan for each one of us. A plan better than the one we have planned. It is going to be a painful walk at times and may seem as though you cant go on but at the end everything will be better if you just trust in Him.

Obey what God is asking from you. Obedience is the key to blessings. I had to take a step of faith; one that did not make sense at the time but God spoke and I listened. The devil was fighting hard to keep me but he lost that battle because my Lord kept fighting for me. He brought me out of my misery and changed my life for the better. He brought my husband. And has shown me to follow His will, not mine all the days of my life. We may give up on God, but He will never give up on us.

Romans 8:18-“the pain youve been feeling, cant compare to the joy thats coming”.


Never give up!

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong” 1 Cor 16:13 NIV.

Even if you fail a thousand times, dust your self off and get back up; we only fail when we quit trying. And whenever past mistakes begin to replay in your mind, pause for a moment and remember all great things take time. Speak to the impossible and remind yourself who you are in Christ. Thank you Lord for your promise to never leave our side.

In my own strength it is not possible but, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13. 💕


Chosen for such a time…

“And if I perish, I perish” Esther 4:16.

Queen Esther would soon realize that she had been placed within her royal position with a great purpose and plan.

God had ordained her steps but her faith would ultimately seal the deal–enabling her to complete her God-ordained assignment and leading to the saving of many lives.

Faith will always give us the victory! For we know that without faith we cannot please God.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the victory you have given us through Christ. Help us to remain strong in faith as we continue believing in you for the impossible. Let us walk in victory in all that you have called us to do. May your perfect will be done in each and everyone of our lives. Help us to get this right Lord! In Jesus’ precious name we pray. 💜


Moving forward in Christ

IMG_2182Blessed is the one who reads and hears the Words of this prophecy, and the ones keeping the things written in it, for the time is near. Revelation 1:3.

A few weeks ago I had dream that as  I was walking with some people, suddenly my body began to rapidly ascend upward into the heavens. The people I had been walking with at the moment had not ascended upward with me but had stayed behind and continued walking about on earth. I remember looking down–trying to make out the facial images of those that had stayed behind, with no success. I woke up with such an urgency to share the truth of what is to come.

And so with urgency I declare, “Let us Repent– for the kingdom of God is near!

Heavenly Father,

Please help us to be heaers and doers of your word. Pierce our hearts Lord–ripping pride, fear and doubt out by the root. Remind us of who we are in Christ: Called, Qualified and Chosen–for such a time as this. Please change and transform us into the men and women you created us to be. We want to make it to the promised land and bring as many with us as we possibly can. We love you Lord and trust your perfect plan. In Jesus’ mighty & precious name we pray. 💜


In a Spiritual Warfare…

As Christians, we must understand that we are in a constant spiritual battle, not only for our own souls, but for the souls of our loved ones as well.

I find the words of Holley Gerth to be right on point when she says, “Oh, yes, a lifetime with Jesus is going to be a wonderful adventure. There’s going to be joy and hope and beautiful relationships. But, listen, there’s something else you need to know: You’re not going on holiday, you’re going into battle.”

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12.

We have to boldly declare, “The enemy will not have my marriage, my husband/wife, my children or any of my loved ones–the battle is on!”

Heavenly Father,

Help us to understand that we are in a spiritual battle against the enemy of our souls. Please give us discernment and wisdom so that we are not deceived by his schemes and tactics. Help us to put on the full armor of God daily–so that we may be equipped for battle. Let us remember–our toughest battles are won on our knees in prayer, for Jesus has already won the battle and the war. In Jesus’ mighty & precious name we pray. 💜


Positioned for a Miracle

Are you believing God for the impossible? Have you positioned yourself to receive your miracle? Today I encourage you to set aside some time and meditate on who God is and on what he has done for you in the past. Begin to thank him for what is to come and shake off all the other voices and distractions around you. Believe what God had spoken to You–those words were given to You and no one can take them from you!

Faith is the key to receiving your miracle. You have to believe in something so strongly that you are willing to lose everything for it!

“A woman which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour” Matthew 9:20-22.

Heavenly Father,

Let this day be a day of great breakthroughs in our lives. Keep us strong in faith as we position to receive our miracles. Empower us to press forward in all that you have called us to do. We love you Lord , we thank you for all that is to come and are believing in you for the impossible. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. 💜
