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.
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.

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”
I’m not walking in my own strength, I’m walking in the Lord’s, therefore I will go faster and farther than I ever imagined.
I’m not understanding with my own mind, I have the mind of Christ, therefore I will understand things far beyond my ability to comprehend.
I’m not fighting with my own weapons, I have the full armor of God, therefore no sword can pierce me and no enemy can defeat me.
The time is at hand, the trumpets have been blown. The Remnant is being called to come together like never before, stand side by side in a way we have never stood. We have watched many fall as temptations came, witnessed causalities as our fellow brothers and sisters became too wrapped up in the ways of the world, in the attacks of the enemy, to continue to fight. But, those that are standing are ready, are able, and are angry. Continue reading “The Trumpets Have Been Blown”
The Lord did not allow David to fail, no matter how many times Saul tried to kill him or how many battles he fought, David was victorious because he was God’s man.
The Lord did not allow Esther to fail, regardless of the attacks on her uncle’s life or the fact she could have died when she went before the King, she was God’s woman.
