Elevate in your walk

faith, trust god, Uncategorized
Go Higher     Don’t let your circumstances dictate when you praise. You have it all wrong if you’re only praising God when things are going well. Praise should continuously be on your mouth. (Psalm 34:1) Part of elevating in our walk with God requires us looking at Him as a present help in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1) Even if we aren’t seeing the results we want. Knowing that He is well able is enough to make you shout, “Praise God!” [bctt tweet="True joy comes from God and it is there regardless of what is happening around you." username="AuthorTTucker"] But how can you attain it? By resting in Him. You are resting in Him when you are fully trusting Him. Fully meaning no worries. Yes it’s possible. I write…

Dear God

Dear God

faith, Grace, Identity in Christ
Dear God, I’m trying. I’m resting in you. Today, I’m reflecting over it all. I know you’ve been with me. You’ve been by my side and in front of me. Lord, sometimes I want to scream! Sometimes I want to cry. I am so strong and I hold things together but I don’t always want to. I have to. People are watching: My husband and children are watching. My family, and church members are watching. Clients and strangers are watching. You have me on display. I’m an example right? That’s what you told me. I’m an inspiration and have to show people how to walk this thing out. I'm a walking epistle. Yeah, and I’m all for that most days. Lord, I’m trying! Reflecting, as I lay here in pain.…

Truly an interesting saying is, "I don't care what people think." I've found that to be one of the biggest understatements ever. However, people use that narrative often. I know I have. And a part of me doesn't care, yet there is another part that does. People say they don't care what someone thinks of them, but I would wager to say that they do care. Very much actually, as they should. Did you know the bible says that our reputation among men is important?   A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. Proverbs 22:1   If the Lord says it's important, then that seals it for me. In my younger days, I did and said whatever I wanted and dared anyone to come…

The Authenticity of the Writer

faith
Why I write I enjoy writing immensely. If I could just write and that was all, there would be no issue. Regrettably, that is not the case. Being obedient to the call that the Lord has placed on me is exciting and uncomfortable at the same time. Granted, I have been speaking my mind, and posting scriptures for years on my personal platform. However, using a professional platform to showcase my writing leaves me vulnerable and open in a way that I didn't feel before. Even so, this is what has been asked of me. I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. This is not in question. At the same time, I am being pulled to the front for all to see. As…

The enemy invaded my thoughts

trust god, Uncategorized
I have a word to share about the enemy that comes each time God is elevating you. He whispers words to you that go against what you know to be true and also what you know God said. Today, I spoke at a service and I've never been to a "Testimony Service" so it was interesting. I've been in service where people have testified but this entire service was focused on testimonies and praise and worship, which was awesome. My background is Jehovahs Witness so I'm still not that familiar with church protocol. I'm still learning. I went first. I have such a vast testimony that I had to condense it as much as I could. I think I did ok, but I was questioning it too, because I was…

It’s Time to Transition

Uncategorized
  A white beautiful butterfly landed on my right shoulder this morning. I was outside moving a chair around so that I am not directly in the sun while having my coffee and morning scripture. Direct sunlight for me hurts my skin terribly. I miss it-the warmth of sitting in the sun typing on my laptop;however, It's temporary. Trusting God, knowing, spiritually I am healed, yet It still has to manifest in the natural. My body has been attacked throughout the years, with this cancer being the biggest attack yet. I can withstand because God is with me. He has given me strength and a strong bold voice. As a result of walking seriously with Him, I know who I am and what I am supposed to do. I am ready…

"You want me to do what, God?"

"You want me to do what, God?"

faith, trust god
How many of you have received a word from the Lord that gave you pause? That made you say, "You want me to do what, God?" I have. I have received a few of those words, that I didn't quite understand, yet most times, I obeyed. The times that I didn't obey, I paid the price. We do suffer many things, not from the enemy or the Lord, but by our own decisions. You do know that, right? Some things are just us. We need to get out of our own way. The Lord says that obedience is better than sacrifice. (1 Samuel  15:22) Also, understand these 3 things. (I cited these 3 from jolly notes.com, but agree with them 100%) #1 God is still God – God is still…
