In Everything…

“In everything…”

Do you realize even the things that come at you that you may not like, even the things that may have hurt you, even the circumstances that you may not understand…

In Everything, give thanks!

Not easy for sure—but it is His will for us. Why? When we give thanks in the midst of the pain or the circumstances it releases and opens our heart for the blessings to be poured in. We no longer live tied to the hurt or pain. Just think you can’t really sulk when we are being thankful, can we? ❤️

He is Faithful

I may not know your story—But I do Know: He is faithful! 💕

Unhindered Prayers

Don’t let the way you treat others get in the way of how your prayers are being answered!

(Taken from Joel Osteen)

Did you know that the way you treat people has an impact on the effectiveness of your prayers? The Bible says that the prayer of the righteous person is powerful, but if we aren’t treating others with honor, kindness and respect, then we aren’t allowing His righteousness to operate in us. When we don’t treat others the way we should, it closes the door to God’s power and hinders our prayers.

This is especially true in a marriage relationship. Marriage isn’t just an agreement between two people to live life together. Marriage is a God-ordained institution that helps us understand love and unity. When two people are married, they become one physically, spiritually and emotionally. This particular passage is directed toward husbands, but it applies to all believers as well. We should all treat others “with understanding,” which means considering the needs of others above our own. We should always aim to treat others with kindness, dignity and respect and quickly choose forgiveness.

The Bible says that the way we treat others is the way we treat God. So choose love and treat others with respect so that your prayers can be powerful and effective the way God promises!

A Prayer for Today

“Father in heaven, I want to live in Your ways. I want to treat others with love and respect which shows that I honor You. Show me how to be a blessing to others and teach me how to make my prayers effective in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Take That Step of Faith…

What’s holding you back from taking that step of faith? Keep your eyes on Him and watch how your life changes and doors open up for you! Nothing good ever truly comes out of comfort zones, isn’t it time to grow? See what you were created to be?

Are Your Roots Firmly Planted?

Are your roots firmly planted?

Is your foundation steady?

Colossians 2:7 “Have your roots planted deep in Christ. Grow in Him. Get your strength from Him. Let Him make you strong in the faith as you have been taught. Your life should be full of thanks to Him.” (NLV)

It Is Well

Is it “Well” with your soul? Sunday afternoon my mom called me and there was a tragic accident in Guyana that included extended family being taken from this earth far too soon! It was shocking, it was devastating and as the details poured in—it was gruesome! Later as I processed the incident, questions rolled through my mind about what those dear ones must’ve experienced or what were their thoughts or did they sense something was off that day? Did they meet previous family members in heaven? Who greeted them at the pearly gates? But what about those that are left to find peace here in on earth? What about those that are still processing trying to figure out the whys in a world that isn’t always fair?
We may never understand why things happen the way it does in this world, but one thing that we can rely on and that is God is in control! 

To all my family that I can’t give a hug to today but is grieving, questioning, needs His peace, I encourage you to trust the simple fact—God is in control! It is well! Love you💞

**********************************************

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say

It is well, it is well, with my soul

Know Who You Belong To?

You are the child of the Most High; You are highly favored and You are meant to live life in complete abundance—there is freedom in Him! Start today off knowing who you belong to in the Kingdom!🌟

How Grateful Are You?

Let’s count our blessings? What are you most grateful for? Do you know that the more grateful you are the happier you are? Focus on the negative and it’s simple–you feel sad/tired/drained! 

So count your blessings–name them one by one! Write them down; say it outloud–and you will see how good the Lord has been to you! 

I will start–I am grateful for my family, I’m grateful for a husband that supports me and encourages me to be the very best version of me; I’m grateful for my three little girls that we were blessed with; I’m grateful for the opportunities I get to minister and encourage other people;  I am grateful that God is the center of my family’s life and He is leading our way! 

I know I can keep going on and on…but it’s really quite easy–just start small and you will see the day will get brighter as you focus on the goodness in your life! 

Now your turn…

One day at a Time

I don’t know about you BUT choosing to walk through one day at a time is enough for me! I have enough in ONE day to keep me busy–when tomorrow comes with its challenges or not–Lord give me strength for that day! 💞

Rejoice!

So up bright and early this morning!!!

Last night, Dan and I organized “us.” I set everything out: made the girls lunches, they set out their uniforms, I knew exactly what I had to wear, book bags perfectly placed, Dan and I already planned for who was dropping off which girl, got our calendar up and organized for the month–I even had time to sit and just be! I was ready for today!!!

Then–the littlest decided to wake up and come in to our room this morning. Boom a change in the set schedule! Here we go–15 minutes before the alarm clock goes off— my feet hit the ground and it’s time to choose  how my day was going to play out. From the tears of crying about her socks, to brushing her teeth–I have to say outloud in my head today, “I will rejoice in this day!”  

It may not be exactly what we planned and our schedules definitely get out of whack sometimes but choose to rejoice! Let’s be honest guys, this morning could have definitely gone a very different way of me panicking, yelling, rushing down the road but by simply choosing to rejoice in this day and choosing peace, I even found time to write this blog to encourage others. Make it a great day friends–Rejoice!
