Ladies and gentleman, suit up.

    Be strong in the Lord
    Take your stand
    Remember who you’re fighting
    Suit up-put on the full armor of God
    Don’t budge
    Use what God gave you
  • Belt of truth
  • Breastplate of righteousness
  • Boot of peace
  • Shield of faith
  • Helmet of salvation
  • Sword of the Spirit (Bible)
  • Prayer
  • It’s time (now more than ever) to “suit up”.

  • “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.”

    Ephesians 5:1-20 Prayer

    Jesus, help me to follow Your example. To walk in love at all times. Help me to sacrifice myself and give myself to others as You did for me on the cross. Please purify me; my heart, mind, body, and motives. Take out anything that isn’t like You. Help my words to be pleasing to Your ears. May they build up those I speak to and about and not tear them down. Help me to always be thankful. Jesus help me to keep You first and not put anyone or anything before You. Help me to be wise and walk according to Your guidance and wisdom. Keep my company honest and may they have good motives. Please teach me Your will so that I can walk it out obediently and live a righteous life. Keep me out of the company of those who are disobedient. Help me to have holy boldness and speak truth at all times. Jesus, thank You for every opportunity. Help me to make the most of them all. Fill me with Your Spirit. I need You. I thank You. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    A Simple Prayer

    Jesus, it’s a new day. A day full of new mercies. Thank You for allowing me to see a brand new day that You have made. Forgive me for my sins. Help me today to walk victoriously through the day. Help me to keep your Word hidden in my heart so that I don’t sin against You. Help me because I really want to do what pleases You, but sometimes it’s hard. I need Your help. I need Your hand. Walk with me, please. In Jesus’ name. Amen. ❤️

    “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”

    But why??

    Why do You love me like You do, Jesus?

    Even when you see all that I do.

    How can You look pass my faults?

    Those things i intentionally walked into.

    You tried to warn me and keep me focused.

    But I slipped into sin again and again.

    I caused my flesh to mute Your voice

    The lifesaver and life’s Savior.

    Jesus, this can’t be.

    Again, how can You still love me?

    I turned my back on You many times.

    I don’t seek You all of the time.

    I don’t fast to keep my soul on fire for You.

    But I let this world replace my time with You.

    I am so self absorbed.

    All I see is me.

    I’m too busy to stop and help others.

    Send someone in place of me.

    I am devoted to being selfish.

    I live for the applaud.

    No time to accept Your love.

    I must go.  I gotta get there quick.

    But honestly, I’m so sick.

    I’m tired of stabbing You in the back.

    You’ve given me plenty of chances.

    Wait! Are You sure You don’t want Your love back?

    I know I’m living my life whack.

    It’s a complete mess without You.

    But somehow I can’t find the words to come running back to You.

    You deserve better.

    You deserve more.

    Yet You keep holding on.

    Picking me up when I feel all hope is lost.

    Jesus, why?

    Please! Give up on me.

    I have!

    I’m not worth Your time and effort.

    Go ahead and just walk pass.

    But wait, You’re too good for that.

    That wouldn’t be You. You’re not whack.

    You aren’t lame.

    You can’t be that.

    You died for my sins. This is why You’ll take me back.

    You love so freely and deeply.

    Your death is a sign for me.

    The greatest deed ever done.

    I can’t lose. I’ve already won.

    Because of what you did on the cross,

    I can see why You won’t let me stay lost.

    Thank You, Jesus for loving me.

    Thank You for dying on Calvary.

    You shed Your blood just for me.

    So I won’t walk with my head down.

    This frown is now a smile

    Because I can see clearly.

    How Your mercy and grace saved me.

    So no more pity parties.

    I accept what You have done for me.

    Now I ask, Lord please.

    Come into my heart and save me.

    I LOVE YOU, TOO!

     

    This Thing Called Religion 

    The only life that I want to live is a life that’s pleasing to Christ.One filled with malice, maliousiness, twofaceness, and hate just isn’t right. The life that I live on social media must match my reality. That’s important to me. Some say, Jess you take this thing to seriously. No, I act like this “thing” is important to me. I rather be known as the prayerful, loving, Jesus giving girl. Then the one that cursed someone without a care. Maybe if enough of us took this “thing” a little more seriously, the hurt and lost would be more willing to listen. But right now, all they see is the church being the world’s equal. Instead of the church without a spot or a wrinkle.
    Give Jesus. The people need Him.
