A Night Of Hope

For all those struggling to understand, filled with fear and seeing their lives turned upside down…it’s ok to ask God questions. We don’t have all the answers or completely understand what is happening around the world but there is one who does.

This incredible band got together remotely to encourage us to love one another, stand tall against the unknown and know that our God is in control. I highly recommend everyone watch, sing along and know that you are in amazing, mighty hands…our Heavenly Father! We stand from a position of victory through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

Love and blessings to all. May God protect and keep you strong through the battles of today. May we all come out stronger on the other side. God Bless!!

Fear Not

Don't be afraidWhen you look around, everything seems to be going crazy right now. Everyone is buying up supplies. Store shelves are going bare.  Pandemonium every where. What’s worse is that the news is feeding the fear. Just a brief moment watching the news, you would think we are all going to die today. Right now, it’s extremely easy to become fearful or begin to wonder what is going to happen next. Stay calm and hear the good news!

YOU ARE PROTECTED BY ALMIGHTY GOD!

 “Evil can’t get close to you, harm can’t get through the door. He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go.” (Psalm 91:10-11)

When you feel overwhelmed, just claim this truth. When you feel fear creeping in, tell it to go for it has no place in your life. God has made it a point to protect you. There is absolutely no weapon that can be formed against you that God won’t handle on your behalf. God absolutely loves you and will do everything to protect you. Whether that is in your finances, your family, your health, your business, your comings and goings…whatever “it” is that is trying to attack you…YOU ARE PROTECTED!

But God doesn’t stop there?

Fill our barns with great harvest, fill our fields with huge flocks; Protect us from invasion and exile – eliminate the crime in our streets.” (Psalm 144:13-14)

See, our God is so loving that He doesn’t want to just protect you from any evil…He wants to eliminate the crime and see you prosper in every area of your life. He wants you to be so blessed that you can’t help but be a blessing to someone else. He wants you blessed in the city, blessed in the field, blessed in your finances, blessed in your business, blessed in your family, blessed in your health…blessed…blessed…blessed!

So the next time you have a weak moment of doubt or uncertainty, claim God’s amazing truth. There is absolutely nothing that can happen to you for God is right there with you, every step of the way. He will never fail you and He will always know the best way to provide whatever it is you need; even before you know yourself. For He knows the end from the beginning.

Don’t let the devil scare you. Keep your eyes on Jesus!!! God did not give us His only begotten son, just to let the wiles of the devil overcome you. You have a purpose and destiny that God wants to see come to pass.

SO WALK BOLDLY TODAY AND PRAISE HIS MIGHTY NAME! GOD IS BIG ENOUGH TO HANDLE ANYTHING THROWN YOUR WAY!

Do you know Jesus? If you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, invite Him into your life right now. Say:

Dear Jesus, I believe you died on the cross for me and rose from the dead. You defeated death, hell and the grave. Forgive me of my sins. Wash me as white as snow. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. May my name be written in the Lamb’s book of Life from this day forward. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

If you prayed that prayer, Welcome to the family! Your enemies are defeated and you are now in God’s mighty hands. Rejoice and see the salvation of the Lord!

What the heck is LOVE

Well, if we look at the world’s way…love is conditional.  You do this, I’ll do that.  You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.  Most of us have looked for love in all the wrong places.  Just look at the reality shows on TV.  Sex before marriage is the norm. Heck, statistics show that young kids are having sex by the age of 12 and they know more than adults, in this capacity.  Look at the Porn industry.  It’s huge.  Quite simply, it is an addiction to lust, sex and one-night stands; which is killing the very essence of our families, our society.  This isn’t love!

One of the most important things we need to realize is that the lack or void we feel can not be filled by things or people.  Nothing external can fill the void that is deep within ourselves.  Most people think that if they find a mate, life will be perfect.  Or they think, if only I had more money, I would feel happier. Nothing could be further from the truth.  For we can not expect someone or something to make us happy. If we are unhappy within ourselves, then how could they possibly make us happy.  It just isn’t possible and we are setting them and ourselves up for failure.

Let’s take a cat or dog, for an example.  Say you have been gone all day long and you finally make it home.  You open the Heart 2door to find that loving pet; excited to see you. Whether they are jumping up and down or jumping into your lap, they trusted you to come home and they are excited to show you how much they love you.  It is completely unconditional.  They are just happy to see you.

Well, that is how God loves us.  We can’t earn God’s love nor do we deserve it.  He simply loves us!  It is unconditional. (Ephesians 3:14-19)  He doesn’t care if we are short, tall, overweight, skinny or have pimples; He loves us RIGHT NOW, NO MATTER WHAT!

See, when we start realizing God’s love for us, we can then start feeling love for ourselves.  This in turn, fills the void deep within.  I’m not talking about an egotistical love for ourselves, thinking that you are better than anyone else.  What I’m talking about is having a deep love rooted for God, through God and into our own heart.

When we start experiencing this type of love, then and only then, can we begin showing love for others. This kind of love doesn’t depend on if the person deserves our love or not, we simply realize that God loves us and He loves them.  Nothing can take God’s love from you! (Romans 8:37-39)  THIS IS TRUE LOVE!

Love 1So, EMBRACE YOURSELF!  Look in the mirror and say “I AM BEAUTIFUL, GOD LOVES ME”. Repeat!  “I AM BEAUTIFUL, GOD LOVES ME”.    For when you really begin to feel God’s love for you, it will begin to create the most incredible, amazing, loving relationships that we all desperately crave!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone. You are loved today and forever.

Let The Transition Begin

God’s Word for 2020 is all about FREEDOM! Freedom from depression, freedom from lack, freedom from addictions, freedom from financial stress and worry, freedom from family difficulties, and freedom from whatever it is that’s holding you back from God’s best for your life.

No matter what your current situation is, He wants to make the entire transition smooth and easy; however we must participate to let that happen. We must be willing to let go. Let go of things that no longer are needed. It could be as simple as a piece of clothing or as difficult as saying goodbye to a long-term friend. Whatever God leads you to let go of, be willing to step out in faith and let go!

This is an amazing time that we are living in. God is moving bigger than ever before. Just when all things look lost, an unexpected flip of the coin will happen and your life will move in amazingly new directions.

One thing to remember during these transitions is that God is never trying to take anything from you but is always trying to bring something better into your life. As the Bible states, “all things work out for our good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose”. (Romans 8:28)

When we are faced with difficult situations, it is very hard to let go of things when God is prompting you to do so. Whether it’s our weak faith, not enough confidence that God will provide, or we like to feel we’re losing control…it will always rear itself in the worst of times and you’ll find yourself struggling against the very thing God wants changed.

Maybe your situation looks completely hopeless. Maybe you or a loved one received a terrible diagnosis and the doctors are not giving you any hope. Maybe you’ve hit rock bottom and there’s no way out. Maybe you have friends or family members who are saying negative things towards you or mistreating you. Whatever you are facing today, there is hope. You are not alone. And you are loved very deeply. God Himself made you before you were ever born and He knows exactly where you are in life.

Quit struggling to find the answer. Rest in Him and meditate on His amazing works in the Bible because you are unique and beautifully made. You don’t have to struggle anymore. God will make a way when you don’t see one. He will make sure you have friends that are positive and uplifting even though you may find yourself alone right now. He will open the windows of Heaven and pour out such a blessing that you will not have enough room to contain it where you become the lender and not the borrower.

Whatever God’s plans are for your life, you can rest assured that He will bring it to pass and it will be far greater than you ever imagined. Everything you’ve gone through up till now will look like peanuts compared to God’s greatness shining brightly in your life. Your transition and situations are moving into your favor. Your FREEDOM is about to burst forth! Hold on because it will be the most amazing time in your life if you’re willing to believe and trust in Him! Accept His peace today and let the transition begin!

God of Hope

Calm the StormAround the world, believers are facing some of the most difficult times they have ever encountered. They are struggling through adversity from every angle. Physically, financially, spiritually, mentally and emotionally shaken to their very core. It has been the worst of times for most. Yet through it all, they have reasons to dig their heels in and hold on for dear life; knowing that the stormy seas can’t last forever.

The devil knows that his time is almost up. He is doing everything in his power to make you give up. He wants to make sure that you don’t make it to the other side. He doesn’t want you to see your victory, your healing or your prosperity. He knows that if he can make you change your course, then he can put some distance between you and your God-given future. But, the devil is a liar! (John 8:44)

don't give up1God has seen you holding on for dear life. He has seen the storms raging against you. He has seen every tear shed and heard every word you’ve spoken. He knows that you are at the end of your rope. Yet, God also knows that through all of your pain and suffering, there is light at the end of the tunnel. The devil has had his time and the bell is ringing to its end. God is about to reverse the curse in your life and make such an impact; that every single one of your enemies will flee.

There is an old saying, “don’t get your hopes up”. Well, that too is a lie.

Our God is the God of hope. He wishes to fill you with such joy and peace that the Holy Spirit will be overflowing with hope. (Romans 15:13) But God doesn’t stop there. He says “your hope will never leave you ashamed.” (Romans 5:5)

So, expect the unexpected. Expect God’s promises to come to pass in your life today. Hope beyond fear. Fill your mind with God’s goodness and love. For when God’s mighty hand comes upon your life, you will be standing tall. Your testimony will be so great, people will want to know what has happened. They will want to know how your life suddenly changed.

Keep embracing HOPE. Keep dreaming BIG dreams.

You are about to encounter God’s goodness like never before!

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)

Tis the Season to Shine Brightly

ChristmasWith all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season, it is easy to get lost and bogged down in all the trappings. With the emphasis of buying the right gifts, putting up decorations, and having family gatherings; there is no wonder why so many people become stressed, worried, and exhausted at this time of the year. They find themselves filled with depression, grief, and sorrow. Some may even have thoughts of suicide, from the feelings of being all alone. If they are having financial difficulties, it compounds the whole “gift giving” pressure ten-fold. So, how can we help our fellow man?

Spread the true reason for the season by sharing God’s amazing love. God has given every single one of us a unique skill or talent. Maybe you love painting, baking, couponing, music or maybe you are a talented financial wizard or organizer that gets things done. Maybe you have a bubbly personality that is infectious. Whatever your talent, God can use it in the most remarkable ways to shed a glimmer of hope upon someone else.

Proverbs 16:24 says that “pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body.” Just by a small act of kindness, saying hello with a smile, could mean the world of difference to someone battling depression. Holding a door open could show an act of kindness. You never know what kind of day that person has had or the thoughts they are thinking; you just might be their only glimpse of love.

God wants us all to shine our lights brightly towards others. We are blessed to be a blessing. It doesn’t matter how small the act is…what matters is the impact on the other side. God will always use your talents for the right person, in the Jesus people seeexact moment it is needed. God knows what that person is going through and what they desperately need. By allowing Him to use you in these small acts of kindness, He will make the most incredible impact on their lives.

Always remember that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”.  (Acts 20:13) There is absolutely nothing more rewarding than a heart filled with the excitement of knowing you touched someone today. You just might be their only glimpse of hope in a very dark world.

So, SHINE YOUR LIGHT on all those you come in contact with today. For you just might start the most amazing chain of events that impacts them so deeply; that their life will never be the same.
