Happy Mother’s Day!

What words can be used to describe a mother?

Mothers are nurturers.  Mothers are caring, loving, giving, understanding, patient & brave.  Mothers are fierce!  They will do whatever is necessary to protect their children.

Mothers are steadfast.  Mothers are imaginative, coming up with brilliant ideas to sustain their family.

The love of a mother is indescribable & unconditional!  The love a woman gives cannot be measured or understood.  When they love, they love fiercely!

I thank God for the faith of a woman!  The faith of a woman can sustain her family through any major crisis.

I thank God for the prayers of a mother.  Praying women can move mountains!  God’s word says this about a mother.  In Proverbs 31:25 it says: “Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; And she smiles at the future [knowing that she and her family are prepared].  In verse 28, God’s word says this about a mother: “Her children rise up and call her blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired).”

God also says this about women in verse 30: “Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Most of all a mother is a prayer warrior!  The fervent prayer of a mother avails much! God’s word says this about fervent prayer in James 5:16 – The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” Do not let that one word “man” deter you.  God is not a respecter of persons (Acts 10:34).  The fervent prayer of the women is no different from that same prayer of a man.

In fact, a women’s prayer can be more powerful. Why? Because women give their hearts completely to God. Women for some reason trust God in an easier fashion.  Why?  I am not sure.  Perhaps it is because a woman loves and trusts wholeheartedly.  A lot of times without question or doubts.

I truly believe in my heart of hearts that God created women with an incredible capacity to love.

Yes, a woman is a fierce person.  And don’t let all this silly talk about men giving birth and becoming mothers too fool or confuse you.  God made man and women. God is not and will never be confused on what He created us to be.

A biological man cannot carry a child. A man will never know the blessing it is to carry and care for a living human inside their body.

Mothers, I say thank you today & every day for the job that you do!  It is one where there is no pay and long enduring hours.

Sometimes, there isn’t enough appreciation for the sacrifices you make.  Today we honor you!  We say thank you for everything that you do!

You are tremendous!

Good Friday: what is the underlying message? It is the ultimate LOVE of God!

CrossWithHeartGoodFriday

Today is Good Friday.
What does that mean?
Today, the world’s Savior died to take each of our places.
He was the unblemished Lamb of God.
Perfect in every way. He was sinless and bore all sins of all humanity.
He took all that sin to the cross, where it died with His flesh.
Why did he take our sins to the cross?
So, when we were ready, we could proclaim our rebirth via Christ.
See, when we come to God and accept Jesus as our Savior, our sins are already defeated on that old rugged cross.
Why did Jesus do this? Why did He die for you and take each of your sins to the cross?
The answer is so simple. Jesus did it for LOVE.
Jesus was God on earth in human flesh.
Jesus knew what lay ahead of Him. He knew the betrayal, agony, suffering, beatings, hate, and suffocation that waited for Him.
His flesh wanted to back out. His flesh had second thoughts. He asked the Father if this cup could pass Him (Matt 26:39).
But as we all are, He was subject to God’s will.
See, God so loved the world He gave His only Son, Jesus (John 3:16)
God gave out of His love for humanity.
If you are a parent, think of this type of sacrifice. How many of us would give our children to endure such suffering and eventually death?
I would venture to say that none of us would do this.
We love our children too much to see them endure pain and suffering.
We fight so hard to prevent them from enduring any pain.
Yet, God allowed His only Son, Jesus, to endure the most suffering, pain, and agony inflicted on any human.
Why? Why would God do all this?
LOVE!
He loves you more than you can ever imagine.
His love isn’t worldly. It is a love so powerful that it will change you forever.
His love engulfs you. His love surrounds, penetrates, encompasses, and is where His peace that passes all human understanding lives.
Once you feel it, you want to experience it more and more.
It is a love that can only be experienced in His Holy presence.
How do I know this? Because I have felt it.
There have been two occasions where He has allowed me into His presence, where I experienced His love for me.
That is how I can speak to it so profoundly.
I want more. I long to be there in that love again and again.
Now I am not unique. All of us can experience this.
We only have to ask Him and pursue Him.
God wants to be pursued. He wants us to chase after Him.
He wants us to be hungry and thirst for His presence.
He wants us to long for His presence.
Today is the perfect day to seek after God.
We are in trying times. Now is the time to accept Jesus as your Savior.
If you are ready to accept Jesus as your Savior, please pray this prayer out loud with me.
When I say out loud, I mean not under your breath and not to yourself.
Say it so the enemy can hear you.
Yes, it can be a whisper. That is loud enough for God, you, and the enemy to hear.
Today, if you want to seek salvation and Jesus as your personal Savior, pray this prayer with me:
God, I am a sinner. Forgive me for my sins. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me. I believe Jesus is your only begotten Son. I believe He died on the cross, and on the third day, He ascended to heaven and is forever seated at Your right hand. I accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. God, come into my life and use me for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
If you prayed that prayer, you are born again. You are a new child in Christ. Welcome to the Kingdom of God.
If you are able, find a good bible-based church that believes Jesus is our resurrected King and Savior.
If you cannot find a good church, don’t give up. Keep praying and seeking God for Him to lead you to one.
There are many great churches online. Pastor Paula White, Bishop TD Jakes, Hank Kunneman, and Joel Osteen are a few of my favorites.

Also, seek God as often as possible through prayer and constantly reading the bible, God’s word.
Via the bible (God’s word), God will start to reveal things to you. His word is also your spoken weapon against sickness, lack, fear, etc. It is your weapon to use against the enemy, Satan.
God’s word is power! It will never lose its power, and it cannot be altered, changed, or revoked. His word is so powerful that even God Himself cannot change His word(the bible). Never forget these things about the bible! God’s word spoken aloud will give you victory in every battle you face.
God bless you!

Happy New Year.

What does this new year hold?

No one knows but God, but there are two things that I know for sure this new year holds.

What are those two things?

They are promise and hope.

What is hope? It is defined in the dictionary as a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.

What is promise? The dictionary defines it as a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.

That is powerful! Let me repeat that definition. A promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.

What does the bible say about hope and promise?

“Hope” in Scripture means “a strong and confident expectation.” Though archaic today in modern terms, hope is akin to trust and a confident expectation.

What does the bible say about promise?

The bible is the promise of God. 

Every word spoken by God is His promise for us.

Here are a few scriptures about His promise.

In Phillippians 4:19, God says:

19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+4%3A19&version=ESV

What does that mean? That means that God promises to provide for all of our needs according to His riches through Christ Jesus. 

Did you get that?

Your God will supply every need! Incredible!

What other promises are there in the bible?

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+41%3A10&version=ESV

In Isaiah 41:10, God’s promise says this:

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;

I will strengthen you, and I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Wow!!! What is God saying in this promise?  

He says, “Do NOT FEAR and do NOT be DISMAYED”! He is our God. He will provide us His strength, His help, and He will uphold us with His mighty hand.”

Incredible!

The bible is filled with God’s promises of love, protection, strength, provision, etc.

It is up to us to know His word (the scripture) and utilize His words and promises in our daily lives. 

His written word is our weapon! We use His words to bring forth every promise He has spoken over us.

You might sit there and think that hope and promise are silly and nonsense, but I assure you they are not.

Hope is something valuable to hold on to. Without it, we become hopeless.

Hopeless people do things to others and themselves that are dangerous and potentially life-ending. 

Hoping for a better new year is a great gift to ourselves and others.

Now, the promise for a better tomorrow is incredible. It provides hope as we arrive at the new year. 

I believe in 2022; we will see God eradicate this horrible virus!

God sees our struggles, and He hears and listens to our pleas for help.

Many of us continue to cry out to Him. We continue to give thanks for the moving of His mighty hand.

We cannot give up our hope when it comes to Him moving to extinguish this virus and reveal the truth about its origins and all the individuals involved in its creation.

I know in my heart that this virus was not from God but will be used by God to glorify and enhance His Kingdom.

I believe in 2022, America will see a revitalization of our country and our economy.

When America’s economy is doing well, other countries’ economies will also improve.

Will these things come to pass?

I don’t know. I believe, and I have faith that they will. I am speaking those promises into our existence every day.

Yes, you heard me correctly. I am thanking God now that those things have already come to pass.

I know one thing for sure.

God is NOT done with America yet!

America is coming into Her golden age.

I believe in my heart that America will flourish like never before.

And with all that said, I am full of hope and excitement for 2022 and beyond.

I know that there will be one more outpouring of God’s spirit on this earth before we see our Messiah return again. 

That outpouring hasn’t taken place yet. 

I believe that too is coming soon.

We will see miracles beyond anything we could ever imagine with our own eyes.

We will see with our own eyes the sick healed, the deaf shall hear, the lame will walk, limbs will grow back, and the blind shall see.

There will be no doubt that these miracles are from God Himself.

So you see, we have a lot to be hopeful for!

I pray that God bless you and your family beyond anything you can contain in this new year.

I pray that His blessings overcome you where you are forced to share them with others.

For that is the reason He blesses us so that we may become a blessing to others.

God desires to bless us where we don’t have room enough to contain it:

Malachi 3:10 Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this,” says the LORD of Hosts. “See if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out for you blessing without measure. (biblehub.com)

Happy New Year.

God bless each of you.

God keeps you safe, sound, happy, content, and looking to Him for miracles, signs, and wonders.

In the name of Jesus, I pray this. Amen.

Veteran’s Day

When was the last time you said “thank you” to a Veteran? When was the last time you told them how necessary their sacrifice was?
Today, that sacrifice means more than ever.
Today, we are watching those freedoms that our Veterans fought so valiantly for being pulled out from under our feet.
Those in power seek to take away every freedom bestowed on us by God and defended by our brave servicemen and women.
Even though things appear bleak, do not give up and do not stop fighting.
If our Veterans can keep fighting no matter how complex their mission is, we can surely keep fighting too.
Most of us will never understand how brutal their fights were. Most of us will never be called upon to lay our lives down in service to our countrymen, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a job to complete too.
We all have a role to play. The job of defending our freedoms does not solely fall at the feet of our brave armed forces. We, too, have a job to do. We need to keep our voices raised when we see our freedoms being stripped away.
God, give us the same bravery, endurance, and strength that you have gifted our servicemen and women with.
Father, let us focus on others and not on ourselves. God, let us dedicate our fight to those who laid down their lives for us.
God, help us fight to save America. Father, most of all, let us not grow weary as we continue to fight those who seek to destroy America, our freedoms, our Godly values, our heritage, and all that America stands for. In Jesus’ name, we agree and pray. Amen.
To our Veterans, I say God bless you and thank you.
Thank you for caring for your country and each of us more than you do for yourself.
Thank you for defending our freedoms so bravely.
The price you pay is one most of us will never understand and one we can never repay.
We say thank you for the sacrifice you have given to each of us and our beloved America.

9 11 – we will never forget.

Today, we remember the events that unfolded 20 years ago, on September 11, 2001.

We remember the bravery on display as firefighters rushed in to help those in distress.

We remember watching in horror as so many individuals fell or leaped to their deaths as they faced a horrible decision to stay inside this burning building or fall to their deaths. 

We watched in disbelief as so many of our citizens lost their lives that day. 

We looked on in utter pain and anguish as so many people staggered out of those buildings with life-changing injuries. 

We watched in horror as one at a time, one tower collapsed. Then the other collapsed from the intense heat of jet engine fuel.

We cried out to God as we wondered why this was happening. 

We prayed in unison as we asked God to help all those innocent people. 

Today, we remember, but perhaps the question we should ask is how can we ever forget? 

This event was meant to destroy America, but it had the opposite effect.

In the days following this horrific event, our country came together in unity and love. 

We came together in love for one another and for our beloved America. 

How ironic that today as we reflect, there are forces at work trying to tear America and Its citizens apart again. 

Today, there are those using racism and hate to divide our country and all our countrymen. 

We did not let our house divide then, and we cannot let it divide now. 

God’s word tells us that a house divided on itself, cannot stand (Mark 3:25)

https://biblehub.com/mark/3-25.htm

We must refuse all those pushing division, hate, anger, and racism on us. 

We must tell them to flat out that we will not accept their lies and dishonesty.

Today, let us embrace that camaraderie that we held back on September 11, 2001. Today, let us reignite that love and passion for America. 

Most of all, let us return to God and reignite a fire and love for Him again.

He is and will always be the foundation of America. 

America was built on Him and His strong foundation of truth, justice, love, honor, and bravery.

Yes, America is not perfect, but we search to be and do better tomorrow and all the tomorrows that follow with God’s grace. 

With God leading the way, America will never fail. She may falter, but America will rise again to shine brighter than ever. 

America will lead the way again. 

We may have fallen to one knee, but the sleeping giant that is America will rise again to be more formidable than ever. 

America, don’t give up on God. Keep praying, keep fasting, keep declaring God’s victory over this evil that is trying to overtake America. 

God bless America!
