What Are You Trusting?

You may not be in an ideal situation right now. You may find yourself fighting many battles and at the brink of giving up. Don’t listen to other people’s opinions or listen to naysayers. Keep listening to God and let the Holy Spirit be your guide.

Now let’s be honest here…God’s guidance may not make sense. It may not look like you’re making any progress. But whatever you do, don’t give up hope and keep heeding God’s warnings. You don’t just want to go with the flow or take an easy way out as it could be leading you to disaster.

Isaiah 55:8-9: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

What are you trusting?

Are you trusting and worshipping in what you think you want God to do in your life and how you want God to help you in your circumstances?  OR  Are you trusting God when He says He will provide, He will heal, He will be there for you even though it doesn’t look like what you had planned and you can’t see or feel His presence in your life right now?

God says you will overcome but He doesn’t always say how that will happen. So what do you have your trust in?

Put your hope in Him and His ways…not in your plan or how you expect God to bring your help. He is in the moment right now to encourage you and direct your path. Keep your courage and hope up. There are things out of your control but your confidence, hope, and courage can remain when God is your focus. Whatever God spoke will happen! God finishes what He starts!

Know that when you are in a transition or in trouble, it’s a good place to be because that’s where God does his deepest transformation. Don’t give up. Push through. Keep praising. Reach out to Him. Your transformation, your help, your change, your healing, your more than enough will happen. Keep your spirit of faith and focus on Him. Keep moving forward and It Will Happen! He is your one and only source!

Cherish Your Mother

Mother’s are very special in God’s eyes and should be honored in all her ways. Whether your mother is with you, across the miles from you, or in heaven…remember them on this day and let them know just how special they truly are.

Matthew 15:4: “For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother…”
Proverbs 31:25-30: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.””

You’re Amazing

With a new year upon us, many have vowed their New Year’s resolutions. They want to workout more, eat healthier, lose weight, quit an addiction and just become a better person than they are now. And with most of us, those are great things to accomplish yet many fail within a very short period of time.

Let this year be different. Don’t make your “to do” lists only to begin feeling overwhelmed and frustrated because you ate a donut. See yourself differently this year and place God first in your life. Let Him help you make whatever changes He feels is in your best interests.

specialYou are very special to God. He sees you as worthy through the blood of the lamb. You are a winner. You are amazing and beautiful. You are unique and special. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) You are the apple of His eye. (Psalm 17:8) You are His treasured possession. (Deut. 7:6)

It’s time to stop comparing yourself to others or looking in the mirror wishing this or that was different. It’s time for you to see yourself through God’s eyes. You are His walking masterpiece, a rare find that is filled with His amazing light and love. There is nothing you can’t do as you keep your eyes upon the Lord. He doesn’t want you feeling defeated, He wants you soaring like an eagle with your talents He gave you.

Don’t let another year go by without seeing His love for you. Let go of your past pain, hurt, anger, frustration, rejection and suffering. Let go of all the things you’d like to change about yourself. You are wonderfully made and there’s noone like you. You have special gifts that God has placed inside of you. He wants to burst forth those gifts and see you excel like never before.

God can and will restore all of those things that have been lost and change whatever needs to change. (Joel 2:25) Let this year be your amazing turnaround. Let this year be filled with lots of light and love. Give Him your cares and worries. Don’t let one more day hold you down with defeat or self-worthlessness. You are an amazing person. So be bold, confident, brave, and free!

Reflect on His love for you and everything else will turn out alright. You’re loved beyond your wildest imagination and there’s nothing too difficult for your Heavenly Father. He is right there with you in the midst of any battle or storm. Reach out and see how beautiful you truly are! It’s time to shine and let your amazing gifts burst forth! May this year be your year of transformation and restoration.  You will accomplish more in a day than you thought possible.

Receive it! Believe it! And walk in it!

Let this year be the year you shine like fireworks in the night sky. (Philippians 2:15)

In The Craziest Moment

Early yesterday morning, as we heard a loud crash and ran to see, we quickly realized something was terribly wrong. At first, we thought we were dealing with an intruder as it sounded like a very big crash. What we actually heard was my dad falling when he had blacked out and was unable to cry for help. As my mom rushed to the phone to dial 911, I was holding onto my dad with all my might trying to make sure he didn’t fall any further. As dad became conscious enough to realize something was wrong, being the stubborn man he is, he tried to get up and walk. While begging him to sit down, unexpectedly another blackout occurred and I found myself trying to do everything in my power to hold him up so he didn’t hit the floor. There were no warnings to what we encountered. There were no signs that would have given us a glimpse of what we were about to face.

As the paramedics rushed through the house, they found themselves staring at a very clammy sweaty man who could not comprehend what was happening. The paramedics rushed my dad to the hospital. For the remainder of the day, he was whisked from one end of the hospital to the other having tests being performed to try and figure out the cause of the blackouts.

While dad was being wheeled for another test, mom and I decided to take a break and get some air. As we walked down a hall, I had an overwhelming sense to stop and turn back. Now of course, I’m not in the right mind frame to determine what was happening but when God speaks, I always try to listen. So I asked mom to hold on a second and I turned back. When I did, I noticed a young lady sitting in a waiting room. She was doing everything she could to compose herself. I instantly found myself by her side asking if she needed help. And then that’s when the tears started flowing. She explained that she came to the waiting room to take a minute for herself as they had just lost her grandfather. As mom came to my side, somehow – some way we had the strength to be there for this young lady. We started hugging her and just listening, letting her speak to strangers without judgement. Letting her show all her emotions so that she too could find the strength in helping her family through their difficult time.

It is in moments like these that you have absolutely no clue why this happens. We had heard the code blue. We had instantly prayed for the family and the doctors, yet at the time of hearing the commotion, I found myself being grateful that it wasn’t dad.

But there in a tiny waiting room, we found ourselves caught up in this young lady’s hurt and pain…comforting, loving, and hugging until her strength returned to face all the decisions they were finding themselves unexpectedly having to make the day before Thanksgiving.

A while later, we ran into this young lady’s family as they were being whisked to the funeral hall. The young lady looked up with such grateful eyes and whispered a soft thank you to mom and I. In the middle of their sadness, the young lady had an uncompromising peace found on her face that the other family members did not. She was going to be the rock in the middle of the family’s turmoil. God was using her to bring comfort and peace to the family.

So as you sit down to your Thanksgiving meal, I pray that Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning for you today and I hope that you realize that there is so much to be thankful for. Whether you are with family or you find yourself miles way…be thankful to the Lord for he knows the how, why and when. He will always place us where we are needed the most in sometimes the craziest of moments. But if we will listen and obey, it will always work out for someone’s good. Because in the middle of your chaos, help arrives when you least expect it and in very unexpected ways.

Are You Under Attack?

Unexpected BlessingsEveryone I know, including myself, seems to be going through difficulties in their lives right now. The one thing I’ve really noticed is that it truly doesn’t matter who you are. If you are trying to stand on the right side of things and you are trying to stay in faith…YOU ARE UNDER ATTACK! It could be in your finances, it could be in your emotions, it could be in your relationships, it could be in your health…or worse…it could many areas of your life, all at once.

I think we all could agree that it is a very difficult time for all believers. The more you try to stand, the worse it gets. The more you try to pray, the crazier life gets. Just when you feel like you are starting to make progress, you get hit with a new problem. It’s simply madness! I know…I’m right there with you.

The constant question I hear is “WHY?” Why is this happening? Why can’t I make any progress? Why can’t God do something? Why won’t God help? Why would God allow this to happen? Why? Why? Why?

There’s nothing wrong with asking that question. God already knows exactly how you feel and why you feel that way. It isn’t a surprise to Him. It doesn’t make Him angry for us to question. The way I look at it is that God sees all, knows all, understands all the questions, and He knows that He has the answers already…even when we can’t see them yet.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; …

See…the hardest part for all of us living in these “I want it now” world is waiting on God. We have no idea why something might be happening in our lives, but He does. God knows if He is planning on using your testimony for someone else down the road. And unless you go through some difficulties, how could you possible help them if you haven’t experienced it yourself? He also knows what His plans are for your life and how amazing it’s going to be! But again…the hardest part is for us to wait patiently upon Him and wait for His perfect timing.

Isaiah 40:31 But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

So today, I’m asking all of us to breathe a bit easier as we go through the difficulties. I completely understand that they seem to be getting more intense and more often. Please keep reminding yourself that there is absolutely nothing that can come against you that He doesn’t already have an answer for. Keep your eyes on Him and everything will be alright. Because when He brings you through the difficulties, you will soar to new heights. You will have more than enough. Your pain will subside being replaced with His amazing love, strength, and renewed vitality!

He will bring you through at the perfect time, the perfect way, and with the perfect results! He is GOD OF ALL! There is nothing too hard for Him! He wants you to be successful! He wants you in good health! He wants you to have more than enough! Jesus came to give you life and life more abundantly!

Seeing Things Differently

Mind WhirlingIt is so easy to get caught up with what we see with our natural eyes. You turn on the television or search the web and there’s nothing but chaos, wars, famines, people fleeing their homes, tornadoes, fires, terror, murder, and more. Then you see what’s happening in your own life. Relationships souring, unemployment, overwhelming debt, your bank account is bare, your body aches, and nothing seems to be going right.

When we see with our natural eyes, it can be alarming and quickly turn into depression, fear, and sickness. The most important thing we can do is learn how to see through our spiritual eyes.

“Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness.” (Luke 11:34)

When you start seeing things God’s way, through your spiritual eyes of His power, of His redemption, of His sacrifice, of His protection, of His provision…

  • It won’t matter what your bank account says.
  • It won’t matter what your doctor says.
  • It won’t matter what your family or boss says.
  • It won’t matter what your body says.
  • It won’t matter that you aren’t being treated right.
  • It won’t matter that you’re on the verge of divorce.
  • It won’t matter that you’re on the verge of bankruptcy.

What will matter most is that God’s word is final. If you can learn to have faith and believe in the unseen, then your life can start making dramatic turns for the better.

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Let’s face it…we can’t see God putting the puzzle pieces together. We can’t see God working behind the scenes. We can’t see the person He is about to bring across your path. We must believe and trust in God in all things. Not just some things. Not just in the small ways. But in all things.

Love God (2014_03_10 01_21_18 UTC)

God says it this way…“let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary”. (Psalm 107:2) So, don’t wait any longer. LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!

It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or how your life started out. Quit seeing with your regular eyes and start visioning the incredible life you want to see in your future, through your spiritual eyes! God has the most magnificent plan for your life and you simply can’t out dream God.

He can suddenly take you from broke, busted, and disgusted to having the most amazing life that will absolutely blow your mind! So, what will you start seeing differently? Let your imagination run wild for there is nothing too big or too small for our Lord Jesus Christ!
