When the world presses in around me, puts walls in front of me, behind me and all around me, I believe the Lord is about to bust down the surrounding barricade.
When I feel least like worshiping is when I will worship the most for I know my worship will usher in the blessing. It doesn’t matter what my feelings tell me because feelings are not facts and are often in opposition of faith. The only truth I have to hold on to are the promises from God. Continue reading “Rejoice”
What has God told you, when you shut out the world and allow time for just the two of you?
What has God said to you, when you are walking through a battle and He gives you a word to lighten your spirit?
What has God promised you, when it seems as if the night is closing in but then His voice pierces through the darkness?
Continue reading “Your God”
What do I have need of that God cannot provide? What battle could I face that God could not win? What enemy could come against me that God could not defeat? Is there a mountain too high for Him to climb? Is there an ocean too deep for Him to swim? Is there a valley too wide for Him to cross? Is there anything too great or mighty for my God, for your God?

“Destiny is the Loudest Silence You’ll Ever Hear” -Dr Myles Munroe
My loudest silence is the need, the continuous and constant desire, to advance the kingdom in some way. I don’t want the impact I have in this life to be a small one, I desire for my impact to be massive, like a valley that can fit an ocean or a mountain that stands high into the skies.
The loudest silence in my life is the need, the continuous and constant ache, to love people like Jesus loves them. Jesus didn’t love in a light way, he loved deeply. He loved enough to call sin, sin. He loved enough to refuse to allow darkness of any kind into His life. He loved enough to draw people away from lifestyles that drew them away from Him. Jesus loved enough to take the stripes, bare the cross, wear the crown and the tattered and torn robe, hang on that cross and tell the Father to forgive them, forgive us, then proclaim it is finished.

My God is awesome, He parts the red sea, just for me. My God is amazing, He healed me when I was sick, strengthened me when I was weak. My God helped me overcome the giant, defeat the lion and take down the bear. My God never lets me down.
No matter how the world pushes me, my God gives me the strength to push back. My God has never failed me nor His people, and He never will.
My God pours into me when the world drains me. My God tells me I can when the world says I can’t. My God has put a path before me that I don’t always see but I know is straight and will lead me to where I am destined to go. My God sees the whole picture when I only see a piece. Continue reading “Always There”
God, we are waiting. For what, we do not know, but I know there are many waiting on you to move.
We are aligning ourselves with your Word, turning from the world to fix our eyes on Jesus. We are closing our ears to the lies told to us by those around us and opening them to words spoken by men and women who relentlessly pursue you. We are removing old garments, replacing them with pieces of your armor. Continue reading “Shoulder To Shoulder”
You tried to make me feel useless, but God made me feel valuable
You tried to tell me I was nothing, but God told me I was everything
You tried to push me down, and may have gotten me down for a while, but God helped me get up, time after time
Continue reading “But God”
Have you ever felt like a pawn on a chess board, an insignificant participant in some sort of game? You want to be a major player, to have a monumental role, title, part, to be an important character in this grand game, yet you feel as miniscule and unable to make an impact as just a regular little pawn on a giant board.
While praying for the Remnant the other day I saw a chess board. There were kings, queens, knights, rooks, bishops, the players we all see when we think of a winning game, but there were also many, many pawns. The Lord said to me,
“I am strategically placing my pawns in positions of power”
I knew in that moment that there was going to be a time when all the pawns moved together to take control of the board that seems lost, to turn the tide on the enemy and, together, make a dominating play. Continue reading “Powerful Play”
To those who stand when others bow, refuse to listen to the shouts of man over the still small voice of God.
To those who reject the lies poured out by those in power and instead cling to the truth of the written Word.
To the Remnant, the few and far between who speak out when others are silent, who call sin sin and stand on the truth of the scriptures.
To those who are willing to take the beating they know will come if they position themselves beside Jesus.
To those who step out, knowing full well that stepping forward means you are placing a scarlet letter on your chest, willingly making yourself a target to the masses.
To those who are tired of the lies, of the acceptance of evil, of the wrong that we see flooding into our societies like a tidal wave crashing in and sweeping away everything good and pure.
To the people who are reading these words right now and thinking, “this is me, she’s writing to me”, I have one thing to say to you, one thing to beg of you…
Continue reading “Stand”
Hold on, all those who are weary, heavy laden and heartbroken. Hold on, for your Savior is coming. He hears you, He sees you, He desires to heal you.
There is no enemy that can defeat you if you simply hold on to hope, hold on to peace, hold on to the knowledge that you are going to get through this. For, whatever it is you are going through is no match for your King, whatever darkness is surrounding you is not greater than the light within you. There is nothing that can take you out if you simply refuse to be taken down.
Know that greater the battle means greater the victory, the bigger the storm the bigger the blessing.
Continue reading “Hold On”
When I think of where I was not long ago, I’m amazed. My heart was broken, my spirit in torment and my mind a jumbled mess. I was trying to find the right way to go but I wasn’t using the only light provided to me in order to find the next step. I was trying to hear God’s voice but couldn’t above the yelling of the chaos around me. I wanted to please the Lord but was battling with wanting to please the world as well.
I allowed my heart to be turned from my King, which was one of the greatest mistakes I have ever made. It led me down a dark path, a path leading to nowhere but confusion, torment and hurt. I was lost and knew it but didn’t know how to get back. The moment I took my eyes off Jesus I became entangled in a web of lies. Continue reading “Big Empty Room”
I thought I was wild and running free, yet I was actually controlled by my own emotions and constrained by the whims and ways of the world around me. I thought I was uninhibited and unharnessed until I was tamed by the Master, for only in His taming could He show me how restrained I really was. My mind was a victim to the happiness the world said I should or should not feel. My heart was broken by those who had no right to hold it. My emotions were a roller coaster, up one day then plummeting the next. What I thought was freedom was never really free at all. Continue reading “Tamed By The Master”
There is only one concern I have in this life. It doesn’t scare me to walk into the unknown, surrounded by people I’ve never met or to be placed into a position I don’t fully understand. I don’t spend my time worrying about things of that nature, but there is a single thought I can’t seem to shake, one thought that consumes me beyond my ability to run away from…what if I lose “THIS”?
This, as in this closeness I have to my Father, this overwhelming and all-consuming love for Him, need to be with Him, desire to be continuously surrounded by Him. I can’t lose Him, I can’t afford to.
Continue reading “Stay With Me”
I can’t do this on my own, that much I intimately know. I have no ability beyond what you give me, what you pour into me. My strength is weak in comparison to yours and my thoughts slow unless replaced with the mind of Christ.
Lord, I know I am no match for the giant and no enemy to the foe unless I have you backing me. I know I am small compared to the mountain and insignificant to the wave as it comes roaring in. When the tides rise I have no way of keeping my head above water unless you are the firm ground beneath my feet.
But, Lord, I also know that when you step in there isn’t an enemy in the world that can stand against me. I know that when you put your armor upon my shoulders no sword can pierce me and no bullet can make me bleed. Lord, I know that when you fill my mouth wisdom floods out far beyond my years and education. I know, God, that when you fight through me, I am unstoppable. Continue reading “The Lord Will Fight For You”
Lord, let your cloak of confidence envelop us. Allow your power and ability to take the place of the heaviness of vulnerability and fear. We need you to fill us up, overtake us, push us out and take us over. We must decrease for you to increase, So, decrease us, Lord, push us out until all that is left in each of us is you.
We can’t do this, whatever it is you desire for us to do, but we know you can do it. So, God, wipe us out and build us up again, but, this time we will be built upon the firm foundation of the truth of the Word instead of the lies of the world. Continue reading “Send Us”
