F8452454-7E32-4F20-9785-FA82553A66CC
What does it mean to be still with you? Surrounded by creation, peaceful renewed. The stress of the world no longer carried. No need to worry, no need to tarry. The wind is calm, a gentle breeze. You sit with the Lord under his tree. He speaks to you and gently reminds, You are special to him, one of a kind. You’re loved for who you are, not what you do. The Lord loves sitting there, he and you. He loves to speak promises and tell you what’s true. He loves relationship and being with you. Sit back, relax and be with him. Then jump in the water and go for a swim. He loves spending time with you each day. Take time to give him glory, honor and praise. He hears you every time you pray. Listen to what he has to say. Sit back, relax, it’s going to be ok. Take a deep breath and receive love today!

Love Me Back to Life

The last month has been hard! Full of unexpected challenges and often times answers were no where in sight. Fear became something I encountered often. After battling fear throughout different circumstances in my life, I came to the conclusion the other day that need God to kill the fear inside of me that holds me back from experiencing abundant life. In order for this to happen fear must die and God must love me back to life. I believe he cares and is full of joy to hear this prayer. I encourage you to ask him to take your fear. He already went to the cross to deal with all sin! I don’t want to live afraid rather I want to live courageous. Lord give us the strength and boldness to live for you!

Growing pains

Pain is hard, tears we’ve cried. I’ve asked God many times why. Though I don’t get an answer I start to grow. He begins to lift me up out of the low. Once in a pit all around was dark. Then Jesus came in and I could see marks. Scars on his body and marks on the walls from people once there until they realized they’re called! Jesus is the light that helped them out. Jesus I surrender I don’t want to pout. Life is hard, but you conquered the grave. You are with me always because I am saved. Guide my steps every day and keep on my tongue things you want to say. Let me be a light, a bringer of hope to a world that is hurting and just trying to cope. Show us what it is to live with life, instead of feeling like we’re stabbed by knives. Joy come and fill our hearts. May the church arise and do her part. Love one another, encourage and pray. I believe together the world we can change!

Living With Loss

The loss of a child, the loss of a friend, the loss of a job will tragedy end? I can’t say I understand all the trials and pain, but my heart breaks for those treading through rocky terrain. It’s hard and it’s tiring will the trek ever end? It is hard to take another step and even bend. I hear people say when can I rest? I’ve given life my all, my very best. I wish I could say tomorrow the tide will turn and you will look back and see all you’ve learned. I don’t know when that time will come, but I encourage you to keep walking you are worthy not dumb. You may feel like the world is crumbling under your feet. Remember how much you’ve gone through, living life is quite a feat. I’ve experienced many trials and chosen to believe that there’s treasures that have been deposited in me. Life isn’t easy but I’ve learned much indeed. I pray that these words comfort others in need!

Power of Your Voice

Voices are used to sing and shout. Voices are used to create and cast out doubt. Voices are instruments of praise and adoration. Voices are used to make declarations. How you use your voice is up to you. I want to change the world and speak life, too! There’s so many hurting. I hate when people die because of cancer and suicide. God I want to glorify you not disease, speak through my mouth and heal disease. May the church arise and miracles happen where people around the world get a taste of heaven. I pray we are united as one and honor the Father, Holy Spirit and Son!

Grieving

Grieving is painful and hard! As I was able to process a little tonight, I decided to share what the Lord gave me. He gave me a poem and he gave me assurance: “It’s going to be ok.”

Grieving is hard and full of pain. Sometimes you can’t feel anything. Tears stream down your face and stain. Your heart is broken, the pain it stings. You can’t put your emotions into words. Your thoughts seem to be all over the place. You wonder what direction you’re moving towards. Then in the midst of chaos you find grace. The Lord touches you and gives you space. Space to process and space to grieve. Space to be held and cry with thee. He holds you tight a loving embrace. He looks at you with a smile on his face. Tragedy struck and trauma came. Along cake guilt, pain and shame. But child remember I love you the same. Yesterday, today and tomorrow. I am with in in joy and sorrow. Trust me, you are going to be ok. Though the storm is heavy and the sky is grey. Receive my love, each and every day. You don’t have to strive or try to prove. You just have to rest and simply be you. Let love overflow and heal your soul. Especially when you feel like life’s taking a toll. I suffered great losses this past week. But my God journeys with me through the hills and the peaks. I’m not alone and I’m not afraid. God is my refuge every day! He will help me through the journey of today!

Praying for you as you go through life and process hard things!
