Positive Changes From COVID-19

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭NASB‬‬

God loves us so much! We have all had to journey through some very challenging times during this COVID-19 pandemic.

It is such a blessing to know that not only has God been with us 24/7 during it all, but He actually is using it to transform and mold us into a stronger and more effective vessel for His presence in the world. I do not believe God caused this pandemic, but He is using it for our spiritual growth.

I believe that as we transition back into our communities, we will definitely not be the same!

What is a POSITIVE change that has happened in your life, family, job, community, church, etc. because of this pandemic season of time?

Acceptable Words & Thoughts!

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.” Psalms‬ ‭19:14‬ ‭NASB‬‬

I have been thinking alot about my words lately.  I have to admit that with everything that has been going on during the last 3 ½ months, sometimes my words may not be acceptable to the LORD.  I have allowed words of negativity and complaining to flow from my mouth. Forgive me, LORD!  

As I look at the meditation of my heart, I see the same problem. My words are connected to what I am thinking – to what is in my heart. God’s Word tells us that out of the heart the mouth speaks. 

What words do we find ourselves speaking to others and even to ourselves?  Are they words of life…words of encouragement?  Or are they words of discouragement and discontent?  What do we meditate on during the day?  What do we allow our thoughts to dwell on?

LORD, may Your Holy Spirit help us to filter our words and our thoughts. May we lift up and encourage all who we come into contact with. May we take every thought captive and bring our thoughts into alignment with You and Your life-giving truth. May we be vessels of reconciliation and peace. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. AMEN!

Renewed Purpose!

I am sitting here the day after my birthday feeling a renewed sense of purpose. I desire to be all that God wants me to be! I don’t want to hold myself back with my own limited expectations. I want to live out GOD’S expectations of me.

LORD, I place myself in Your hands! Empower and Anoint me for the days ahead to be Your vessel of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…”.

May You be honored in everything I say and do. Forgive me, Father, where I have fallen short! Manifest Your purposes in and through me, O LORD!!

I’m willing…I’m ready! I stand with an open heart, an open spirit, an open mind, and arms opened wide! Fill all of me with YOU, LORD!

I worship and adore You!!

Oh God, I love…

Oh God! I love Your commandments; I love Your guidance and Your wisdom and Your love and Your faithfulness!

Your words are a light upon the path before me. Darkness may be all around me…but Your light cuts through the darkness!

I love Your name and I desire for it to be continually on my lips and in my heart. May Your name be my strong tower that no forces can penetrate!

❤️I love You, LORD!❤️

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

Happy Father’s Day!!
Remembering the fathers who still are present in our lives. Remembering the fathers who are no longer with us (Thinking of you, Daddy).

For some, this is a day of rejoicing…for some, this is a day of sadness…for some, it may be a day of pain of growing up in circumstances that have left a wounded heart (praying for you).

I like to take this day as a day to also honor our Heavenly Father! He is the Perfect Father!! He loves us more than we can comprehend!!

I love You, Abba!! Thank You for being my Father and teaching me, guiding me, empowering me, and loving me!! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!

Father’s Day 2015

Father’s Day is a special day to remember our fathers – not only how much we love them, but also the influence and impact they have had on our lives.  But, even the best of fathers can’t compare to our Heavenly Father!

We have a Father that loves us deeply!  He wants us to get to know Him more and more each day.  He is interested in every part of our lives.  He wants to share our joys, our sorrows, our accomplishments, and our failures.  He wants to show us a higher road and a greater vision for our lives than we ever thought possible!  May His Presence be at the center of everything we do…

What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God!  That’s who we really are… (‭1 John‬ ‭3‬:‭1‬ MSG)
