When God says…No!

And David said to his servants, “Is the child dead?” They said, “He 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! 💙

“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.

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!

What are you believing God for?

IMG_2863But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” Matthew 19:26.

I set my alarm clock last night for a little earlier than usual because I didn’t want to miss my appointment with the Lord this morning. I woke up with such an overwhelming feeling of expectancy this morning. Although I cannot yet see it in the natural–I perceive it in my spirit that He is “making a pathway through the wilderness and creating streams in the desert.”

For His promises cannot ever return void. So I am believing what the prophet says–that I will be Blessed! 🕊🌵💜

Entering into God’s Rest

I vividly remember battling for my life in my hospital shortly after giving birth to my daughter. A few days later I found myself arriving home with a new born baby girl in my arms and an active two-year old son pulling onto my leg while my husband rushed off to work his 15-hour driving shift. Three years later, I find myself still struggling and yearning for peace and rest.

But I know that God does not desire for Christians to live defeated and exhausted lives—and so we must decide to embark on a quest for rest!

“So there is a special rest still waiting for the people of God. For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world. So let us do our best to enter that rest. But if we disobey God, as the people of Israel did, we will fall” Hebrews 4:9-11.
