I Declare…

ONE touch from The LORD can CHANGE everything… 
Don’t give up!

Don’t give up on your dreams…

BELIEVE and DECLARE with me that you are not just going to survive life anymore, but you are going to THRIVE! 

Trust…

This is so true for Daniel and I, especially as we approach our 2 year mark of stepping out of the boat–our comfort zone! God has seen us through SO much in the past 2 years and we stand so much stronger in Him! We both can attest to “He never leaves you and never forsakes you.” There is always a Bigger Plan–trust Him!

“I Will Be With You”

Whatever you may be going through today, the Lord promises to never leave you nor forsake you! He is closer than your own brothe/sister, just trust in Him and He will direct your very path! Be encouraged today as you head into a new week! 

Eye of the Storm

The last few days have been quite interesting as we buckled down and braced ourselves as Hurricane Hermine was approaching Florida. We watched as folks prepared their homes for the impending storm by rushing to the grocery stores, draining their swimming pools, tying down any objects that can cause damage to their homes, schools and offices being closed.  Ofcourse, we followed suit but this time we were not expecting inches of snow on the ground but lots and lots of rain and high winds! Thankfully all is well and we are safe. 

During this time, I especially was reminded of Ryan Stevenson’s song, “Eye of the Storm.” 

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control, In the middle of the war, You guard my soul, You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn, Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm…

In times of trouble, despair, need–where do you put your trust, your faith, your hope?  

Be encouraged today that whatever storms maybe raging and crashing about you, whether it be in health, finances, relationships, and I know the list can go on and on–You are Never Alone!   Hebrews 13:5-“Never will I leave you, Never will I forsake you.” Let His love surround you and calm the storms of your life. ūüíē

Quote of the day

What are you believing for today?
With God all things are possible–don’t give up on your miracle!‚̧ԳŹ

Timing is Everything

There is a time for everything-a time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, a time to rejoice, a time to press forward and a time to be still.  The list can go on and on.  During these times, I encourage you to rest assured that the Lord is still in control.  We may not see the big picture but He does.  We may not know the end result, but He does.

In His perfect time, all things are made beautiful!

Pray For Your Spouse

img_1676

A couple weeks back I¬†shared with you all about the importance of praying for our children.¬†But have you considered the same importance over your spouse?¬† Do you really pray for¬†them or do you pray about them?¬† Just like with your children, you know¬†them best!¬† You hear about¬†their day, you hear about¬†their dreams,¬†their wishes,¬†their struggles,¬†their goals–YOU are more than equipped to go to battle on¬†their behalf.
Sure you may pray that¬†he/she has a good day and that¬†their meetings go well or¬†they are¬†protected to and from work–all good prayers but your¬†spouse needs those Big and Bold prayers too.¬† Today I challenge you to pray for your¬†spouse (after all you more than likely prayed for¬†them to come into your life) not to change¬†them to what you want but what they are created to do and¬†fulfill in this life.

Pray Big and Bold prayers for your Spouse.

I added a few scriptures verses¬†that¬†I believe are helpful in getting started. Look them up and even if you don’t have words to express in prayer, just read¬†these passages¬†over your spouse.

For Protection–Psalm 91-This entire Psalm is amazing to speak over your spouse. It asks the Lord for His protection and deliverance
Prosperity–Jeremiah 29:11 -A great verse to speak life into¬†their future, to remember there is hope
Purpose–Romans 8:28- God works all things out for our good for those who are called according to¬†His purpose
Joy–Nehemiah 8:10¬†-the Joy of the Lord is our strength.¬† Pray that simple prayer over your spouse.¬† So many things happen in a day that can weigh them down, pray that they will be filled with joy
Direction–Proverbs 3:5-6-Our life verse–this verse is our favorite verse! It gives us peace that the Lord is leading and guiding our steps
Love–1 Corinthians 13:4-8–Often called the love chapter of the bible.¬† Read it and¬†profess it over your relationship, marriage and your spouse.

I can not wait to hear how circumstances will change in your home/life.  Please send me a message of how this commitment to pray for your spouse  has helped he/she and in turn you.  Blessings everyone!

Pray for Your Children

IMG_1440

Do you pray for your children? 
I mean really pray for them-not just bless them this day or heal them¬†from this cold or help them at school. While all those are good prayers, I believe that there are prayers where you just go to war on behalf¬†for your kids. You know where it’s not just about the present moment but you end up praying¬†BIG and BOLD prayers for your child.
Think about it for a moment–Who else can pray for them more honestly than you?
You know everything about them already, you’ve¬†watched them grow each day, you know their struggles, their strengths, their weaknesses, their desires, their goals/plans/dreams–you are equipped for battle on their behalf.
Prayer is a big component in our family.¬† Dan and I know we have three prayer warriors in our home and yes I include our 18 month old.¬† Before she could say “mama” she¬†knew to¬†say “amen!” These girls have faith and already have experienced the power of faith in their lives.¬† I remember when our oldest was around 2 1/2 years old and she wanted me to play with her and I would say oh mommy’s “head is hurting, I can’t right now.”¬†She would gently reach out and put her little hand on my head¬†and say, “In Jesus name!”¬† Then she would turn to me and say “ok, let’s play, you¬†are better now!” See kids learn so much from watching us, don’t they?
Our girls know they can come to us¬†for prayer anytime for anything and we genuinely pray about it.¬†I know I can not be with them 24/7 or even forever–but¬†the prayers I lift up¬†will keep on going before them.¬†You often hear there’s nothing like a mother’s prayer–I believe there’s truth in that. (nothing against father’s but there’s just something very special about a mom/mommy’s prayer)
I encourage praying BIG and BOLD prayers over your children–it will help them, it will sustain them, it will protect them, it will lead them, it will comfort them, it will bring them peace and most importantly it will in turn teach them to pray!

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22

Time For a Checkup (One Word)

Back in January I challenged myself and my readers to come up with One Word to work on this year.¬† The idea was instead of having a “to do” list of resolutions, we would focus in on One Word.¬† My word was peaceful.
So¬† how am I doing with keeping in peace, having peaceful relationships, and being filled in His perfect peace when things don’t work out exactly as planned?¬† Let’s just say, I sure am glad we have nine more months in this year!
The very day I posted and declared to you that my word was peace, I remember cooking enchiladas for dinner.¬† It was super easy to do but in my midst of balancing cooking, homework, supervising bath time, answering questions thrown at me left and right–I set the glass dish on a very hot stove and before long–glass shattered–sauce spattered and tears welled up in my eyes due to the overwhelming¬†glob of red sauce and cheese everywhere!¬†¬†The girls were already complaining of being hungry, hubby was on his way home and I was on top of everything until our dinner collapsed.¬† I thought, “peace!” Here was my first chance¬†at demonstrating peace. Dan walks in¬†from work¬†and his comment, “well if you wanted Chinese for dinner, just say so!”¬† We both laughed but choosing peace even though in a silly situation turned into a fun evening instead of me being stressed out.
In the last three months, I have been challenged to my breaking point.¬† There is no coincidence why my word is PEACE!¬† I have realized that choosing to have peace, means choosing to continue to trust¬† in God, to continue to depend on Him when all things don’t seem to make sense and to continue¬†to be true to who He created me to be.(Be You) I have gone through betrayal, mistrust, hurt, anger, frustration but when my focus is on PEACE–I have been able to forgive, love, trust, enjoy the season I am in and show compassion to those that have wronged me.
I am a work in progress for sure and everyday it is a choice to make.¬† The verse I cling to is found in John 14:27–Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

So how is your One Word working out for you?  Is it harder than you thought?  Is it helping you in other areas of your life? Is it rubbing off on your family and/or friends?  Are you still honestly working on it?

Leave me a comment and let me know how you are doing?  Nine more months and we will be that much closer to our One Word!  As always, Be blessed!
