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.

Jesus…all I need is you!

“You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine” Psalm 4:7, NLT.

Here I am again Lord–once more, knocking on heavens doors. Unable to allow even a day to go by without seeking your face and feeling your presence by my side. This agape love is deep, unlike any other love I’ve known before. No longer holding onto the rejection and pain of the past. If people chose to leave, let them do so–where the Lord leads not everyone can go. Time to let it all go and focus on all that you have called me to do. Even if I am left standing all alone–all is well, because Jesus…all I need is you!

God

What if I fly?

…being fully convinced that all that He has promised, He will do. Romans 4:21.

Because He has been so faithful in the past, there is no room to doubt He will be faithful to me now. Fearless faith–hearing His voice in a new way. Always ready to step out and Do it Afraid; In my weakness, He is my strength! πŸ¦‹πŸŒ΅πŸŽ

His Beloved ❀️


“Those who are not my people I will call my people, and the one who was not loved, I will call my beloved” Romans 9:25.

Heavenly Father,

I pray that every person reading this post today will no longer hold onto any past or current pain, rejection or disappointment. Help us to understand that every obstacle we encounter is merely a stepping stone used to strengthen our character and mold us into the men and women you created us to be. Let us feel confident in knowing we are sons and daughters of the King of Kings! He looks upon the unloved–and calls us His Beloved! πŸ’œ πŸ‘‘β€οΈ

God

Not looking back!

“On the way, Lot’s wife looked back and was turned into a pillar of salt” Genesis 19:26.

God calls us to be different, to live holy and sanctified lives. A people willing to let go of anything (or anyone) in the pursuit of holiness and to glorify the name of Christ. Where He leads–I will follow, never doubting or fearing what was left behind. For I have seen the goodness of the Lord, He has been faithful and all that He has promised is already mine! Pressing forward–never looking back–all in His perfect time. πŸ¦‹πŸŒ΅πŸŽ

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. πŸ’•

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

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! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

“Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

An Obedient Heart β€οΈ

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

God

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. πŸŒΊπŸŒ·πŸƒπŸŒΊπŸŒ±

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.🌺
