"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…

Silent Tears…

faith, trust god, Uncategorized
Today I woke with tears in my eyes. Silent tears--There was no sound. No cry escaped my lips, yet the tears flowed freely. I miss my mom, more than anyone could possibly know. Internal pain and hurt. Sometimes pain can be so great that a sound won't come through. It can be so great that you are in the room but not present. You have a smile that doesn't reach your eyes. You search for an escape. Somewhere to run from "Are you ok?" and "What's wrong?" You hear it, you want to answer, but knowing as soon as you start, your chest will heave and your shoulders will go slack and it will be over. All the silence is now so loud, it's yelling at you like a bullhorn.…

It's Enough!

faith, Grace, Identity in Christ
  2 Corinthians 12:9 AMP “but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My loving kindness and My mercy are more than enough--always available--regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.” As Believers, sometimes we feel that we are not enough, or aren't doing enough. Don't let us mess up, this leads to feelings of unworthiness. I've felt this way before and I thank God for helping me to see who I am and His love for me. We won't always get it right. If you are…

Faith it and you will make it

faith, Uncategorized
Have you ever heard the term, "Fake it until you make it?" Most people have. Do you know what it means? It means to imitate confidence and competence with an optimistic mindset.  You do this until it comes to pass.  The "faking it" part is acting in a way as if it was already true. The "making it" part is the hopeful realization that it will come to pass. You have to believe in yourself even to fake it. You have to be confident enough to pull it off. You must act the part. Faith it and you will make it! This is the meaning of Faith: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1 Having faith means to hope and…

You can't go and it's ok

faith, Uncategorized
There will come a point in your life where God will call you to do something. Before He actually sends you out, He will equip you. During that time, you can't go everywhere or be around everyone. It is sometimes a lonely place. This period of time is like a wilderness of a sort, or a desert. It's you and the Lord. I am in that period right now. The Lord spoke and gave me a word regarding watching my associations, where I go to socialize and to disconnect. He wanted me to turn the Tv and Social media off. He was training me to be in His presence. I do that more and more and it's becoming normal. It's not easy initially. He has called me to pray, study and…
