God

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. 💜

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. ❤️

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! 💜

Suddenly

“Long ago I told you what was going to happen. Then suddenly I took action, and all my predictions came true” Isaiah 48:3.

Has God spoken to you former things that have yet to pass? Are you believing in God for the impossible? When we are obedient, God’s love shows up in unexpected ways–at unexpected times. God is a God of suddenly; and suddenly He can transform our unfortunate circumstances into something beautiful and glorious.

Lord,

In you and you alone we trust; and we patiently wait for you to suddenly show up and turn our situations around. With expectant hearts–we await our miracles. In Jesus’ precious and mighty name we pray. ❤️

An Expectant Heart

I can still recall the moment of overwhelming joy and excitement, as I abruptly awakened from such a beautiful scenery– still replaying the words that had just been spoken to me.

I remember the look of disbelief on my husbands face after I had frantically awakened him to share my dream. “We are going to have a daughter, God told me to pick out her eternal name!” I exclaimed. He had given me a quick nod, rolled over and fell right back to sleep. But my heart was beating and I wouldn’t be able to sleep much that night. I knew what I saw, and the voice I had heard and I was overjoyed. I just knew-that I knew-that I knew-that God had spoken to me and that my daughter was coming soon. I had prayed for a daughter for many, many years.

As a baby Christian, I was about to learn that God does not work according to our human understanding of time, but rather in seasons. And so the waiting season began.

As the years passed, and the vision clouded, I held onto His promise with everything I had in me. There were times when I was talked about and ridiculed–but God is, has always been and will always be My Vindicator! And as His words never return void- about three years later, my promised child “Yaleah Mae” was born. 💕👑

So today, I want to encourage someone who finds themselves in a season of waiting for something Big that God has promised–Do not lose heart; hold onto His promises with a firm grip. Faith will give birth to your miracle.

For the Lord has promised good to me, His promises my heart secures; and I will patiently wait with “An Expectant Heart!”

I would have lost heart unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living ❤️

(Psalm 27:13).

Learning to Love again…

IMG_2661

When the Lord gave me the title for this writing, I did not understand it. “Learning to love again?  Interesting…now what could I possibly write to relate to this title?” In due time, I would receive illumination and understanding and then I knew that it was time to share some of My Story!

While most people find joy in reflecting on childhood memories, I realize there are others like myself who have tried desperately to bury the hurts of the past. Growing up, I had an absentee father, and a mother who although physically present–was emotionally absent. My mother suffered from depression and consumed alcohol as a form of medication and means of escaping reality. Sadly, most of her pain and frustration was projected towards me in the form of verbal and at times even physical abuse.

For years and even until recently, I found myself entrapped by the wounds of my past. Small things would trigger a memory and instantly I would find myself in tears and desiring to flee to an area of solitude. With each occurrence, I would re-live the pain, abuse, rejection, and hurt. Soon, I found myself overwhelmed with bitterness. But God was tugging at my heart, teaching me it was time to let go and forgive. He told me there was purpose in my pain; and He has began to teach me how to love again and even feel compassion for those who have caused me much pain.

Unhealed pain results in anger, hatred and bitterness. And sadly, many people today unknowingly are suffering from unhealed wounds of the past. The fact of the matter is, that if you still feel deep pain or strong emotions when reminded of the offense or offender, or when triggered–then perhaps there may be internal wounds buried deeply inside of you which have not yet healed.

As I reflect on my own wounds of the past and even recent disappointments and offenses, I realize that hurting people-hurt other people, broken people–break other people and wounded people-wound others. We must realize who is truly up against us–and that person is the enemy of our soul!

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12.

As God has plans to prosper us, the enemy also has an agenda–to try and hinder God’s plan. But when we grasp onto the understanding of who is truly behind the wrongs and injustices committed against us or those we love, we then are able to feel compassion for those allowing themselves to be used by the enemy. And so we must pray for our enemies, and for those who hurt us. We may be the person God is calling to lead our offender into eternal salvation. There is always purpose in pain and suffering; for we gain favor from the Lord when we respond correctly.

And so, “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees” Psalm 119:71.

Be blessed and remember,
❤️~Love Always Wins~ ❤️

Impatience

IMG_2533

According to Dictionary.com, impatience is defined as the tendency to be impatient; irritability, agitation, restlessness, nervousness or anxiety. I am convicted of having felt most of these emotions in recent days– in combination with uncertainty and doubt.

During our “waiting” season, it is easy to grow weary and impatient and even question God as to when we will see the promises unfold. But today I am reminded that impatience is not pleasing to the Lord and will only further delay our blessings.

The Bible teaches us that the righteous shall live by His faith, and that without faith it is impossible to please God. The Old Testament shares an account of the Israelites having been released from captivity and on a journey to their promised land, and we see what should have ended in an 11-day journey result in a 40-year journey due to impatience and wavering faith.

Heavenly Father,
I pray that you would bless each one of us reading this blog with renewed strength and unwavering faith. During the times when you are silent and we do not feel you near, let us understand that you are working behind the scenes and examining our hearts. May we hold onto the hem of your garment knowing and believing that He who has promised is faithful and true. Speak to us in the midnight hour and most of all, help us to do this right Lord. In Jesus name we pray.

And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” Habakkuk‬ ‭2:2-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬ ✨
