I have a song in my heart this morning.
What a mighty God we serve!!
Angels bow before Him, heaven and earth adore Him, what a mighty God we serve!!!
Do you know the mighty God we serve??
Do you know nothing, nothing, nothing can separate you from His love??
Do you know there is nothing too hard for Him??
Do you know??
What a mighty God we serve!!
The creator of ALL things!
The one that gave up His only Son, that you may have eternal life!!
What a mighty God we serve!!!
God is sovereign. He does what he want, when he want, where he want, uses who or whatever he want, and the how is up to him, as well.
What am I saying?
STOP, blocking your blessings because they do not line up with your expectation. God do not need your approval. He do not need your help. He knows the plan. He is guiding you, not you guiding Him.
Everything and everyone belongs to Him.
So, that was not the job you expected, instead of complaining, ask God your purpose in this season.
The man He sent, that treats you better than any man has before, you doubting because he not the package you want.
Stop blocking your blessings!!!
Pray His will and accept His will.
This word is for me, I am sharing it with you.
I have so much on my plate right now.
I am trying to study two courses, work in my ministry, work in another ministry, get my child through graduation, and more. I feel like there are not enough hours in the day. I feel like I need a planner so I can schedule naps!!! Are you there?
I hear the Spirit of the Lord telling me to relax. If I continue to seek Him first, He will provide ALL that I need. Strength is mine because the joy of the Lord is my strength. I am full of joy when my day starts with Him! When I pray to Him that his will is done in my life and not my own, I am in the best place. I need to stay right there, His WILL, not mine.
If you are feeling the same way, try to relax. Seek Him, He will supply All you need for the day.
If you are not there, pray for us.
Matthew 6:33, Proverbs 3: 5-6
Thank you Lord, for the person reading this post today.
I pray blessings and abundance for them, this day.
Where there is chaos, I speak peace!
Where there is sadness, I speak joy!
Where there is hatred, I speak love!
Where there is pain, I speak healing!
Where there is confusion, I speak knowledge!
Thank you Lord, for protection, favor, mercy, and grace covering everything concerning them.
In Jesus name, Amen!!
I had a conversation with someone yesterday. She wanted to know why she have to be the bigger person in certain relationships.
Maybe this will help somebody today:
It is not about you.
Take yourself out of the equation.
You are not acting as your own but as a child of God.
You are not being the bigger person, you are being who God want you to be.
The word tells us we are in the world but not of the world. (Romans 12)
We are to set a standard, we are to love everyone, in spite of our feelings and their actions.
Be different today.
Love in spite of, today.
Be who God want you to be, today.
Romans 12:1-2, Matthew 5:16
For breakfast this week I have been drinking smoothies. I have used various colors of fruit and vegetables such as yellow pineapples, red strawberries, green spinach, yellow carrots, brown flax seed, green protein powder, and other color variations. When I blended them together, every time, the resulting color was green. Each day my smoothie tasted so good!
What is my point?
Why is it that we as people of different race, different beliefs, different cultures, different sexuality, and other differences, can not blend together and be great! Underneath all our differences, our blood is red. I promise you as a nurse over 20 years, I have yet to see a different color blood come from the body.
The flavors in my smoothie respected one another, neither was overpowering, they became one without losing their flavor.
Just a thought.... Matthew 22: 37-40
Laughter is good.
As you go about your day, laugh.
You do not have to be so serious all the time. Relax.
Try laughing at a concern versus crying, screaming, or reacting negatively.
If you walk up on someone and they talking about you, laugh and walk away.
If you receive that big bill in the mail, look at the bill and laugh.
If you have that disagreement with your spouse or friend, laugh and let it go.
Those things are distractions and temporary.
They are set up to destroy you.
Laughter, confuses the enemy.
You can laugh because you know God got it.
You are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ.
You do not have to worry about anything, you know who holds the key to your life.
Proverbs 17:22, Psalms 126:2, Ecclesiastes 3:4, Philippians 4:4
Lord God, thank you for our early rising this day.
Bless us indeed, this I pray.
Knowing you are with us, whatever today may bring.
May we give you glory in everything.
From the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same.
We know there is no other name.
Thank you for mercy and grace.
As we continue to run this race.
We love you, adore you, give you all the praise.
We bow down before you, our hands we raise.
All honor and glory we give to you.
Not for what we have, but because your love is true.

Yesterday as I was doing my walk at the park, God put someone on my heart. I kept walking and made a mental note to call her later. As I continued to walk, she continued to stay on my heart, so I called her. Instantly, I knew there was a concern.
I gave her the words that came and she began to praise God. This isn't about me. I have no power without the Holy Spirit. She thanked me, but I give all glory to God. He is truly all-knowing and He will supply all our needs.
She told me she was asking God for a sign/confirmation. She was trying to encourage herself. She knew all the things to say, but when I called, led by the Holy Spirit, and gave her the words she needed, she knew it was nobody but God!! Won't He do it!!!!
My word for you today, be obedient. When the Spirit tell you to do something, do it. It is not about you, it is always about Him.
Use your power today:
Genesis to Revelation, use your power!!!
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
