Yet I Will Praise The LORD!!

“Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. (‭‭Habakkuk‬ ‭3:17-18‬ ‭NASB)

This is such a good reminder that our praise of Almighty God is not dependent on how things are going on in our lives.  Our praise is not in response to our circumstances – but our praise is in response to who God is!  

As we continue to journey through COVID –  we offer our undiluted praise to the LORD!!

As we walk in uncertainty of what our future holds – we offer our praises of faith to the LORD!!

I invite you to join me in wholehearted, faith-filled, joyful praise to the God of our salvation!! Our circumstances are constantly changing – but the LORD does not change! Hallelujah!!

“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (‭‭Psalm‬ ‭34:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Blessing the LORD with you!

Salvation

“So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling;”. ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:12‬ ‭NASB‬‬

Paul is recognizing that the Philippians followed his teachings not only while he was there among them, but even when he was absent. 

Do we follow the teachings of Jesus not only when we are among our fellow Christians, but when we are out in the world?

We are to “work out our salvation with fear and trembling.”  We are not working FOR our salvation. There is nothing we can do to earn it. We have been saved by God’s Grace through faith.  We are able to receive salvation by what JESUS has done.  Hallelujah!!

As a result of our salvation, we begin to “work out” or do the good works of God that He has prepared us to do.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

LORD, as we go forward from our position of being saved by grace, may we never take it for granted! May we never take YOU for granted! You are Almighty, Creator, King of kings and Lord of lords! May everything we do and say in Your name be in recognition of Who You are. You are WORTHY of our deepest reverence and our highest praise!! Amen!

Living Sacrifice

A living sacrifice…are we willing to sacrifice our plans, our schedule, our desires, our lives…and put them in the hands of Almighty God?

This is worship that costs something. This is truly believing that the God of the universe has a better plan for us than we have for ourselves.

Do we trust Him that much? It is a minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day choice.

I choose YOU to be the Master of my destiny, LORD! Your way is the best way! Your plan is the best plan! I offer myself as a living sacrifice. I am Your vessel… may You live in and through me! May You be glorified!!

Aldersgate Conference

As I’m sitting at the gate in Dallas/Ft. Worth airport, my thoughts go to all that has taken place over the last 5 days. I always feel a revival of my spirit at the Aldersgate Renewal Ministries Conferences. I am physically tired – but my spirit is full!

I am so thankful for being a part of the ministry that has taken place. It is a joy to serve the Lord and serve others. My heart is full!

I am so humbled to have been able to participate in Prayer Teams, Prophetic Prayer Team, Coordinate the Word Gifts Team, lead an adult Equipping Session on the power of our words, and lead a Youth Equipping Session on prophecy.

But also the unscheduled moments of praying with people that the Lord connected me with. Getting to know Brothers and Sisters from near and far and sharing our hearts for the Lord. Such a blessing!

And those overwhelming moments of WORSHIP! Oh my! I am so thankful to have a place to worship with all my heart and soul. The worship team was anointed and powerful. Thank you Jonathan C Dow for your leadership! It is always a joy to join you in worship of our amazing God!

Thank you Christen Ball for the Song of the Lord that flows through you with such power! My spirit leaps as I listen to the Holy Spirit sing to me through you.

The Keynote Speakers spoke into my life! I walk away with spiritual “food” that will challenge me and ignite me in the next phase of my journey.

And lastly, I want to thank and honor Mark Barrow, the Executive Director of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. God clothes you with gentleness, humility, love, power, and authority. I am so blessed to be in ministry with you and to name you as my Brother and Friend! Onward & Upward!!

I can’t begin to share all that has taken place…but I did want to share some of it with you, dear friends. Thank you to all of those that have held me up in prayer. You know who you are!!

Next year the Conference will be in Peoria, Illinois. I would encourage you to pray about joining me and experiencing what God has planned for YOU!!❤️

Join Me!

I awoke at 4:00 am this morning. I am looking forward to my next ministry opportunity and the Lord is preparing me!

I am so humbly grateful to be leading an Equipping Session at the Aldersgate Renewal Ministry Conference in Springfield, Illinois. I will be talking about the power of our words as we speak what the LORD says. The word of God flowing in and through us will not return void!💥💥💥

I will also be participating in Prayer Ministry, Prophetic Team Ministry, and coordinating a Word Gifts Team.

I am blessed beyond measure to be His vessel of love, mercy, healing, and power! May this not only be at this Conference but everyday of my life! To God be the GLORY!!

It’s not too late to register! I hope you will join me for this set apart time with the Lord!
