All Of Me

Without you, my world stands still.

If I don’t have you, I’m surrounded by darkness.

When I try to make it on my own, I end up lost, broken and hopeless.

You give me the confidence I need to step forward, the strength I crave to take a chance, the boldness I can’t live without if I’m to do what you’re calling me to do. Continue reading “All Of Me”

Always There

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”

But God

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”

Stand

To Christians,

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…

His Desire

Recently, a friend of mine lost a child. I cannot begin to imagine the pain he is walking through, the torment of his thoughts or the heartache he is feeling in this moment. The world has become so dark it is sometimes difficult to see the light, the air so thin it may seem hard to take a breath. Now, more than ever, it is so important to draw close to the Lord. Continue reading “His Desire”

What I Want

I don’t desire to be famous, but I do desire to be significant. I don’t care if the masses ever know my name, but I do care if the Kingdom knows it.

It doesn’t matter if people like me, but it means the world to me that the enemy trembles at the thought of me. It is nothing to me if I never pick up a sword in the physical, but it is everything to me that I carry one continuously in the spiritual. I don’t care if my voice is magical to the ear or my singing desirable to the people, but I need it to be powerful to the rival and commanding to the foe. Continue reading “What I Want”

Latest Bloom

The latest bloom is often the most anticipated bloom, the bloom we have been waiting so long for, praying and believing for. Sometimes, we wonder if the bloom will ever come, if all our hard work to protect the harvest was for nothing.  We heat the harvest in the snow, cover it in the rain and shade it in the sun. We do everything we can to make sure our plants will eventually bud, but sometimes the hardest part is simply waiting for the blossom to bloom. Continue reading “Latest Bloom”

Greater Is He

“Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” -1 John 4:4

There is nothing too great for you, for inside of you is something so vast, so wonderful, the very earth itself worships at His feet. In you is power so overwhelming the very winds become still for Him. Around you is something so large the very mountains bow before Him. Continue reading “Greater Is He”

Trust

I will trust you, always.

I will trust you to do what you say you will do, regardless of what I see around me.

I will trust you to surround me with your favor, regardless of the storm I feel raging to my right and left.

I will trust you to speak to me, no matter how the silence presses in upon me.

I will trust you to fill me with your Word, regardless of how my stomach may be growling. Continue reading “Trust”

Who My God Is

I do not fear what is ahead of me, no matter what it is, for I know who my God is.

My God is the God of miracles, breakthroughs and overflow

My God heals the sick and cleanses the lepers

My God speaks to the wind and the waves and commands them to be still

My God pulls the mountains out of the earth and digs the oceans into the deep Continue reading “Who My God Is”

Ripple In The Water

There’s a ripple in the water, I know it.

It’s been so long since we’ve seen movement we’re hesitant to even believe it. We feel the shifting of the earth beneath our feet, the stale wind brushing our cheek, see the still trees slightly sway. We know the water is about to move, not because of what we feel, not because of what we see, but because of what we believe. Continue reading “Ripple In The Water”
