I’ll forever Claim That You’re Still Good

Dear heavenly Father,
I come before You interceding for Your people. Someone is going through. Someone is having a hard time. Someone is down. But I come before You, God knowing that nothing that we face, is too big for You. Nothing that we face is too hard for You to fix. Nothing that has happened or is happening is news to You. You hold our world in Your hands. You know our endings from our beginning. You are a good Father. Help us to look beyond our fears, hiccups, and pain and push to give You the praise in the midst of it. Help us to worship from a deeper place. Help us to honor You with the fruit of our lips. Help us to hold on to Your word knowing that it won’t return void. Many things will change in this world, but one thing is guaranteed, You will remain the same. No matter what is going on, You remain good. No matter how we feel, You remain good. No matter the test, You remain good. In lack, You’re good. In sickness, You’re good. In sadness, You’re good. In the midst of the storm, You’re good. You’re good when all is going well and we will claim the same when we hit a trial. Lord, how mighty are You. Your thoughts and ways are higher than ours. Give us the patience that we need for you to complete a perfect work in us. Give us the joy that will be our strength. Give us the endurance to remain in the race. Give us the peace that will surpass all understanding. Give us Your Word, for it is true and dependable. We will forever give You the praise and the glory. In Jesus Name. Amen. 

I am.

Society, please don’t label me.

But if you must, call me…

Dope

Beautiful 

Amazing

Unique

A gem

Great

Blessed

Purposed

Valuable

Loved

A jewel

Worthy

Enough 

Valued 

Tell me that I can do it.

Tell me that I will win.

Whisper greatness to my soul.

Accept my me-ness.

Embrace my sound.

Please? Please.

But you won’t. 

So I shall call myself these things. I shall speak greatness over my life. I will march to the beat of my drum. Because I refuse to play by your rules. 

I AM ME

Sharing Is Caring

Lord, I just want to share the beauty of Your love with everyone I encounter.

May Your words spoken through me kiss their soul.

May Your Spirit smother every hurt, every pain.

Bring a peace that will flow like a river and wash every fear and doubtful thought away.

Encamp around them through  their daily journeys.

May the dipstick of their joy read “full”.

And Your comforting power bring that racing mind to a complete stop.

 

That’s all.

Mind blown.

God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or think according to the power that works in you.

Stop looking at what you can do and start looking at what He can do.

Trust God. He’s about to blow your mind!

Got faith?

Drop your limits here

We can talk ourselves out of just about anything. We can list a million reasons why we can’t or why we haven’t. We can talk ourselves right out of a blessing.

I don’t have the money.
I don’t have the time.
No one wants to listen to me.
That’s already been done.
My kids are my main focus.
School is a heavy load right now.
I’m too old.
I’m not smart enough.
My dad was a nothing, so I’m a nothing.

Blah. Blah. Blah.

Now, think about it. What if you actually tried? What if you actually faced your fear? What if you just did IT? Whats the worse that could happen….you actually succeed?! Geeze. Success??  I’ll take it! There’s nothing to it but to it.

Let me say this, there have been times when fear literally stopped me in my track. I would get myself hype and say “today is the day”. Then when it was time to do xy and z, I failed. I would be so disappointed in myself because I would put off and put off. Then one day I finally did what I was afraid of doing. Come to find out, it wasn’t scary at all. Once I started, everything flowed. Why? Because everything that I need is in me. I have what it takes to get the job done. And you know what?? YOU DO TOO!!!!

So what limits are you putting on yourself? Please drop them here…

No longer will you hold yourself back. No longer will you doubt your abilities. No longer will you speak or think negatively. No longer will you limit yourself. You are what you think. Think greatness. Speak greatness. Go and be great!

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.
