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.


Graceful Goodbye 🕊

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland” Isaiah 43:18-19.

Recently, I began to feel as though my season was nearing its end in a specific area of my life but I needed to be sure what I was feeling was from God. I sought counsel from a couple of elders in my church (my spiritual mentors), because the last thing I would ever want to do, is to step a single foot outside of God’s perfect will for my life. Lord knows I have circled the same mountain for far too many years–and I needed some solid wisdom. The words I received pierced right through my heart–as though a light bulb had just been turned on, instantly I felt at peace and full of understanding.

When your season is over, God will confirm. He does not elevate you, to then bring you low. God will take you “from glory to glory!” It will not be a shameful end, but rather a graceful goodbye!

Everyone shall know, “I am with you!” Isaiah 41:10.


At the mouth of my Miracle..

“LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken” Psalm 16: 5-8.


Last night I heard you speak wonderful and delightful things to me. Although the enemy is relentless in attempting to bring confusion and doubt, I know I heard you speak–and I will not waver in faith. I stand positioned to receive “everything” that you have promised me-and I will praise you from the pit as if I have already arrived to the palace. 💜👑


I once was blind…

“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”.



“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” Philippians 4:6.

Counting my blessings on this blessed day, choosing to not worry about tomorrow or any negative thoughts that will rob me of my joy. God is good–A promise keeper, and He never disappoints. Thank you father for all that you’ve done–all that you are doing and all that is to come!

Learning to trust His plan even when things do not make sense and are difficult to understand, because He who promised is faithful & true. Please finish this work you have begun in me Lord–less of me and more of you! 💕


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. 💜


God is Able

To do so much more than we can even dream or imagine 💕

When all else fails, trust in the words God spoken to you; Because He is able…

“To do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us” Ephesians 3:20.

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for another precious day of life. Please help to keep us strong in our faith as we continue believing you for the impossible because we know that you are able to do far more than are our human minds can comprehend or even imagine. With expectant hearts we believe it done–in Jesus’ mighty and precious name. 💜


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! 💜
