Faith walk. Faith talks. I slip. I fall. Because I took my eyes off it all. I believe what I can’t see. Until someone comes and gives their opinion. When I listen, I must remain prayerful. They can’t see my vision. So if I let their word in, I slip. I fall. No more faith. Now it’s all based on what I see. There is no calculating when walking in Me(Christ). Trust and believe you are on the right path. Keeping going in Me. Keep growing in Me. What you see will not always be when you are walking with Me. Faith walks. Faith talks. Getting moving.
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.
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.
Who would’ve thought, I would be following my dreams.
Who would’ve thought, I would be happy being me.
Who would’ve thought that when I smiled it was no longer to hide the pain.
Who would’ve thought that she would remain sane.
There were moments when I should have lost my mind.
There were times I just wanted to die.
But the nerve of me to want to cut off my destiny!
I didn’t know it then, but I know now, that there’s a great work to be done through me.
I must push past the feeling of not being enough.
Push past the negative thoughts.
Positive thinking helps stop overthinking.
You can do this.
You will win.
Someone is waiting for you to succeed.
Someone is rooting for me.
Someone is rooting for you too!
They want to see you grow in knowledge and wisdom.
They want to see the pain healed.
They are calling your name in prayer.
They are longing to see you walk with your head held high for the world to see the beauty that they saw all along.
That person is me!
My Dear Friend,
Please know you’re appreciated. Every prayer you’ve prayed. Every kind word that was spoken. Every hug that was given. Every text that was sent. Thank you. You make me smile with just the thought of you. I thank God for you every moment I can. I pray for you daily. I sometimes sit back and ask myself what I’ve done to deserve someone as awesome as you in my life? What have I done to have the great privilege of calling you friend? Your smile warms my heart. Your presence is forever wanted. The beauty of words are forever etched in my mind. The sound of your voice changes my mood from good to great. Your laugh is contagious. Your life is inspiring. You’re empowering, motivating, encouraging, and supporting. You’re forever rooting for me…pushing me. Every time we speak, I’m reminded of Gods love for me. Thank you for being a friend. Thank you. I love you!
Your friend and sister,
You’re looking for love and Love has been there all along.
Jesus is love.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Allow those eyes to be yours.
Embrace your uniqueness.
You are dope.
Beauty. Its more than appearance. Allow it to radiate from within.
When you value yourself, others will too.
Be the person that make things happen.
You are capable of doing great things with your life.
Jesus loves you.
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!
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 NIV
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37
He must become greater; I must become less. John 3:30 NIV
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 4:4 NIV
T R U S T G O D
Even when it looks like all hope is gone.
Even when everything is going contrary to what you’re speaking.
When it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders.
When you can’t see a way out.
When friends and family turn their backs on you.
When nothing makes sense.
When nights seem long.
When all you wanna do is cry.
When it’s hard to smile.
When it’s hard to get out of the bed in the morning.
When you feel like it’s getting worse rather than better.
Because truth be told, God is with you every step of the way. He said that He’ll never leave you nor forsake you. So, keep speaking. Keep believing. Keep trusting the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge Him and He’ll direct your paths. He is making a way for you. All things are working together for your good. Don’t doubt. Don’t fear. Jesus loves you and He cares. Trust. Trust. Trust. He won’t let you fall! His glory will be shown. It’s not your job to understand/know how He’s going to do it, but its your job to TRUST that He’s going to do it. He’s not a man that He should lie. His word will not return unto Him void. He’s got you! Be still and know that He is God.
2 Corinthians 5:7
Remember…Jesus loves you and He cares!
If you’re reading this and you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, there’s no better time like the present to invite Him into your heart and life. If you’d like to do this now, genuinely and sincerely pray this prayer…
I truly believe that You are the Son of God. I confess that I have sinned against You and cannot save myself. Please forgive my wrongdoing and let me live in a relationship with You from now on. I receive You as my personal Savior and believe that You have died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead and are alive and can hear my prayers. I invite You to rule in my life and in my heart from this day forward. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. Thank You for saving me.
In Jesus’ name,
