We are not called to think like everyone else, act like everyone else, be like everyone else or do what everyone else does. We are called, created, to be individuals standing on one truth-the Word of God.
So, why are so many adopting a “group think” mentality and attempting to look like the masses in order to be accepted by the world?
The Word says we are, “not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world”. The very next thing Jesus says is, “therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:19).
The world hates light because light shines upon what the darkness wants to hide, yet it seems as if the church is doing everything it can to make the world love it by hiding its light and aligning itself with the ways of the world.

To preface this post, I would like to say that anyone who does not believe the Word is a living document and just as powerful today as it was when Jesus and the apostles walked the earth, will not agree, or understand, what I have to say.
Last week, while putting a mask on for the first time since the coronavirus fiasco began, I felt my stomach drop. To fly you now must wear a face covering, but that didn’t change my feelings of defeat when I positioned the mask over my mouth before boarding the plane.
When I placed the mask upon my face, I felt small, belittled, obedient to something other than my King.
God created me, us, to speak, to sing, to pray, so to mute and muddle that ability seems wrong, almost sinful.

I believe it takes a very specific individual who can handle promotion and elevation. I, personally, am looking for neither and don’t desire either one. Why? Because I have watched far too many people fall from grace due to selfish needs, greed, and intoxication that often accompanies power and authority.
I’ve cheered as people I liked have been elevated and promoted. I’ve hugged those I deemed capable of the advancements and smiled as others stepped into positions of authority. But, time after time, my spirit fell as I watched those I believed to be well-intentioned stumble and transform into someone I didn’t know.
Yesterday morning, while in prayer, I realized it’s the few and far between who can handle the fame, the power, the authority, who can wear the crown without allowing it to change the way they think. For, there seems to be something that happens to the mind once the crown is placed upon the head. Thoughts, actions, desires, motivations all begin to change the moment it touches them and begins to transform them into someone they never thought they would be, someone their old selves would be embarrassed of.

Over the past several days it’s been on my heart to pray against the spirit of resistance. I’m not only talking about the political resistance we see marching on Washington, although that is part of it, I’m primarily feeling a need to pray against the spiritual resistance that’s been infiltrating our daily lives. Continue reading “Resistance”
There have been several moments in my life where I’ve wondered where God was. I’m not proud of these moments but I won’t lie and say I’m the perfect Christian or that I never doubt the Lord. The past several months have been difficult for me, spiritually and mentally. I work in Washington D.C., where I truly believe the battle is raging more-so than nearly anywhere in the world.
There is a spiritual heaviness residing over the city, something that is nearly palpable. It makes me sad to admit, but my Nation’s Capitol, although physically beautiful, has become dirty with the darkness we have allowed into the country. I say “we” because the church has allowed this to happen. We didn’t stand against evil when it knocked on our door because we feared what the masses would think, now we are dealing with the repercussions of opening the door rather than locking it and telling the enemy to leave.

This post is unlike any of my others so far. This is not a spiritual writing or a love letter poured out to God. There is nothing eloquent or beautiful about what I have to say. This will not be a politically correct, “people friendly” post, so if you agree with the worlds views I would suggest you stop reading now because you’ll most likely be offended by what I’m about to write.

Allow me to step up on a soap box for a moment.
I have been increasingly frustrated with what I’m seeing in our society, primarily in our churches. We stand for nothing, so we fall for anything. We don’t call out sin therefore those who are sinning have no idea that their lifestyle is a lie. We have stopped standing for innocence, innocence of life, innocence of adolescence, innocence in general. We allow our voices to be drowned out by the masses due to intimidation and fear.
We, as Christians, are not allowed to simply act and live as everyone else, we know better. We, as Christians, are not permitted to stay silent as the darkness creeps in. This is a battle, why are so few Christians fighting? Continue reading “Salt And Light”
I believe there has been a Holy Hindrance put on God’s people. Many of us have felt it, seen it, experienced it for weeks, months, years, even decades. I’m not talking about a hindrance on healings, those we know are God’s promises and cannot be kept at bay when we ask and believe they have been received.
What I’m talking about are situational hindrances-career paths, prophetic words coming to fruition, vision over our lives being shown, doors being opened.

Yesterday morning, while talking to the Lord, I told Him, “God, one of my favorite things about you is that there is no gray area. You are black or white, there is no in-between”.
We live in a society where everything is mixed and confusing; right is often perceived as wrong and wrong is accepted as right. Marriage has been molded into something God never designed it to be, the killing of innocent life has been named “healthcare”, genders apparently no longer exist and everything we do is based off of “feelings” regardless of spiritual facts. We, as a society, have lost our way in the night because we allowed the darkness to push out the Sun. Continue reading “No Gray Area”
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…

Lord, your people need you, now more than ever before. They are hungry for your Word, their stomachs growl with the desire to digest your truth. Your people are thirsty for your Spirit, their bodies long for the refreshing rain of your presence.
God, if you don’t fall on them, on me, then we will drop by the wayside, become small in a world where we have no choice but to become big if we are to survive. Continue reading “Fall”
Shouldn’t we live in a state of continuous expectancy?
When we pray, shouldn’t we expect our words to be heard? If our Father’s ears prick at the sound of our voices, then He begins to put a plan into place the second we ask for and believe in a miracle. (Matthew 21:22) Continue reading “Great Expectation”
I have to believe that you are who the Word says you are, for, if I don’t, then what do I believe in? If you didn’t send Jesus, then I, we, have no Savior. If you don’t heal, then there is no hope for a miracle. If you don’t deliver, then all we can do is fall. If you don’t listen to us, then we are all just talking in an empty room. Continue reading “I Believe”
We live in a world where good is bad and bad is good, darkness is perceived as light and light is shunned as darkness. We have placed God on a pedestal far from where we stand and tell the masses that the Lord is always in control, no matter if we are living a life after Him or not.
