Are you really all in??

“As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance” 1 Peter 1:14.

Are you really All In?? Or still holding onto one or two little sins? This morning let us take a moment to examine our own hearts. For our Heavenly father knows all that is done in the dark.

If we claim to live a life totally transformed by Christ–we must do what we must to kill the sin in our lives. The first step is to acknowledge the little sin you struggle with–then surrender to God and allow the work to begin. One foot in and one foot out? Selective obedience produces selective results.

I don’t know about you, but I want to see miracles produced in my children and my families lives. Lord I surrender it All and to me I die. ❤️

Obedience; Dying to Me

“Abraham did as God told him to” Genesis 17:23.

Each day we have a choice to make–follow our own desires or listen to what the Lord has to say. I will be the first to admit it’s easy to fall into the trap of being led by emotions–knowing very well they tend to leave me torn and broken. Praying for the strength to be different and make the right choices. Help me Lord to walk in obedience to you and die to me…may you look down from heaven and with my walk be pleased.

It’s not easy to move on when you feel defeated and ready to quit; it’s not easy to forgive when the memories are impossible to forget; it’s not easy to love when how they treated you was evil & unjust–but if I claim to be your child I must believe your love enables me to do ALL things. Not in my own strength but in my weakness is when you are most glorified through me…..

“Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible” Matthew 19:26.

❤️His love is enough! ❤️

God did it!

“From six troubles He will deliver you, Even in seven evil will not touch you” Job 5:19.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I want to take a moment to thank you Lord for always being attentive to my cry; amid pain & suffering you remind me the victory is already mine. Once again you rescued me from the evil schemes of the enemy. I will live to tell of your goodness, love and great works. May I find favor in your eyes all of the days of my life…when people question and wonder how I was able to reach so high, I will humbly answer…God did it!……..it was not I. ❤️

God

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

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! 💜 👑❤️

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. ❤️

God

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. 💕

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. 💜

Lighting each other’s candles

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will too be refreshed” Proverbs 11:25.

I wonder how differently things would have played out for King Saul had he not only been obedient to God’s instructions, but had he also embraced the big calling upon David’s life–as apposed to doing everything in his power to try to stop it. We can only imagine how differently the story would have unfolded, had the king repented from his sin, accepted his short-comings and extended a hand of grace to the anointed, young man “after God’s own heart.”

In Jeremiah 17:10, the Lord boldly declares, “I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”

Our lights do not dim by lighting each other’s candles. We rise by lifting up others. A generous heart will always prosper–and love always wins! ❤️

Heavenly Father,

Help us to be men and women readily available to extend a hand of grace to others in need. Let us do nothing out of selfish ambition or empty pride, but instead let us consider the needs of others more important than our own. Let us bless whom you tell us to bless, without any hesitation and in a spirit of truth & love. Please keep our hearts genuine & pure and may we shine for your glory. Help us to get this right Lord! In Jesus’ mighty & precious name we pray. 💜
