Always Got my Back!!!

                                                                 Romans 8:26-28 MSG

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
This was my daily bible scripture for the day and boy did it hit home. God always have this way of communicating that he recognizes our concerns when we think he don't. For somedays I been feeling like nothing is going to give and its been draining me. Sunday I threw my hands up to God with my eyes full of tears and surrendered it all to Him. I was in my car driving and just told God to take total control over my life and every situation.
When i woke up this morning and read my daily bible verse all I could say was "wow", God just keeps reminding me of His loving grace. Just like the scripture says, when you stop praying and yes we do stop praying consistently, I know i did. Thankfully we have a Father who is willing to pray for us, how awesome is that. Now dont get too lazy in spirit but some days we cant find the strength to pray what need to be prayed. Just having reassurance that God is taking care of it all brings on a sense of peace we all need.
 Prayer is a powerful yet intimate communication with God and no one ostensibly perfect but at least try to pray once a day. I had to learn a while ago that God answers and hears all types of prayers, long, short, simple, complex, out loud and within. Some think your prayers have to be presented a certain way but not true at all. When you develop your own personal relationship with God you will know how to communicate with God in your own way.

Hope you all have a blessed day! Thanks for reading.

He'll Promote You at the Right Time!!!!!!!

1 Peter 5:1-7 MSG

I have a special concern for you church leaders. I know what it’s like to be a leader, in on Christ’s sufferings as well as the coming glory. Here’s my concern: that you care for God’s flock with all the diligence of a shepherd. Not because you have to, but because you want to please God. Not calculating what you can get out of it, but acting spontaneously. Not bossily telling others what to do, but tenderly showing them the way.

When God, who is the best shepherd of all, comes out in the open with his rule, he’ll see that you’ve done it right and commend you lavishly. And you who are younger must follow your leaders. But all of you, leaders and followers alike, are to be down to earth with each other, for— God has had it with the proud, But takes delight in just plain (humble) people.

So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.

Jehovah Nissi - The Lord My Banner!!!

A few Sundays ago my pastor spoke on Jehovah Nissi, wow what a powerful message for me. Before I got saved I didn't understand the different names of the Lord but now that my pastor have been teaching about them I have been blessed in many ways. In my opinion blessings are not only visible and tangible things; they go much deeper than that. They can be from improvement in a relationship to just gaining more wisdom of the gospel. Well for me I have to say that message brought me the blessing of peace and wisdom. I have never experienced true peace what a wonderful thing!

The Lord My Banner, what comes to mind when you hear this? At first I thought it meant representation in some way but I was way off. It simply means God goes before us and fight ALL our battles. How can you not gain peace knowing that the battles are already won!!! Praise God for being so amazing!

The week before I heard this message my thoughts were all over the place, trying to figure this and that out. Just crazy, not sleeping at night. Oh but when I got the break down of what Jehovah Nissi meant peace just came over me. God has a way of getting the message to you right on time.

Be blessed my sisters and keep embracing our amazing Father!

Inspirational Poem

Arise Woman Of God

Rise up, O woman of God
In what He has given you,
The things God has laid on your heart,
Rise up, go forth, and do

Unlock what God has placed within,
The potential you have inside
The world is waiting for your release
To expand your wings and fly

Arise in your God-given gifts
For this is your finest hour
Arise in the Lord's holy might,
Ignited and empowered

For God is calling you to come forth
To impact this world for Him,
Don't hold back or limit yourself
Let His power arise within

And take His message to the world
To those that have lost their way,
For you can surely make a difference
If you'd hear His voice and obey

You shall be strengthened in the Lord
As you begin to arise,
Conquering those doubts that pull you down
And believe who you are in Christ

For you shall surely be transformed
As, in you, God increases more
And become a woman of true excellence
Bringing honour to her Lord.
