because of your faith…

I had a conversation with God.

As I asked what to do, He responded with “a move”.

“Whew, that’s gonna take a step of faith,” I said.

“So step,” He replied.  “Jump and watch Me catch you.  You’ll end up in the land you’ve been praying to enter.  A land that you envisioned.  No longer do you have to stand on the other side of the gate as you dream.  Now you can walk into all that you spoke and believed.  You came to Me and I saw your heart.  You put time in,  you did your part.  You allowed Me to be first in your life, so it’s now up to Me to add all of these things as I promised.  It’s time for Me to do what I said, because you were obedient to everything I said.  You followed My Word everyday.  Even behind closed doors.  Now, that’s integrity.  That’s smart. You now have My heart.  You desire to do My will over yours.  I am pleased to give you more.  Because I know that you will build My kingdom up and give Me the glory as I fill your cup.  Thank you for being faithful to Me, My child.”

I See You – Part 2

Dear young lady,

You are loved! I know, I know. I can hear your question…I am loved? I can hear your “yeah right.” But don’t stop reading. Please, hear me out. I know things my be a little rough. I know life seems unfair. Yeah, it’s hard to smile genuinely. No one sees the pain you carry. No one hears the “help me” through the fake laugh. No one hears the “I’m over life” when you say “I’m ok.” So you think….

Your eyes tell your deepest secret. They long for an ear to whisper to. They reach in hopes they will find an individual that will care. You don’t say “help me” with your mouth because you don’t want to be a burden. So you stay burdened. Hindered. Stuck. Depressed. Down.

But, I see you!

“No you don’t”, you say.

Yes I do. How? Because I have been in your shoes. So please know that there is hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is a hand reaching out waiting for you to grab. This hand wants to save you from sinking any deeper. This hand is being extended by Jesus.

He is the way. The truth. The life. He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. No weapon formed against us shall prosper for We are more than conquerors through Him. His joy is our strength.

Reach out and grab His hand. He loves you. He cares. Trust Him with your life.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

When I look into the mirror, what do I see?
A woman that’s put together so wonderfully.
I was phenomenally made by God.
Yes, cheerfully He created a masterpiece to display.
For His work to speak of His goodness each day.
Let His greatness be seen in me
May my life be rich in favor for all to see.
I could really care less about what people think about me;
I cant allow their words to determine my destiny.
For me to become enslaved to the words of society,
would be a total disappointment to the One who created me.
I walk with confidence because I know Who holds my future.
I’m on a quest.
I’m on a mission.
Lord, use me.
