Good Friday.

Can you imagine what Jesus felt this morning? I imagine He felt alone, abandoned, petrified, unsure, and wanted to back out of the events that would occur.
Remember, Jesus was human for a reason. He became a man to experience every emotion and feeling we as humans feel. God wanted firsthand knowledge of what it was to walk through a human life.
God also needed a man of flesh who was also God to walk through His life as the perfect unblemished, sinless God.
Jesus had to become the perfect sacrifice. A sacrifice for all humankind. A gift so perfect that no other person could or would have to walk His path again. Jesus was and will always be the perfect, sinless, Lamb of God. The blood shed at the cross is so powerful that NOTHING can defeat it. By the blood of Jesus, we are set free. By the strips He bore on His back, we are healed. Praise the holy Lamb of God!
No other person could have taken Jesus’ place. No other sacrifice could have the effect that Jesus’ sacrifice did.
God knows everything thing you face today. Nothing is too big for Him. He knows everything you feel because He experienced it via His Son Jesus.
Today is the perfect day to place God first in your life.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your personal Savior, pray this prayer with me. Perhaps you are backslidden. Today is also the perfect day to renew your walk with God. Pray 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.

Good Friday.

Today we celebrate our glorious Savior, Jesus. We celebrate the life He gave for every one of us.
He gave His life willingly for each one of us as He took our place on that retched cross.
He was sinless, yet He bore each one of our sins on that cross.
He defeated death, sickness, sin, and every burden at that cross. In doing so, we don’t have to carry the burdens our of sins.
He suffered through beatings, mockery, hate, thrones driven into His skull, and the agonizingly slow death of affixation.
I can never tell Him thank You enough! I am forever grateful.
He gave us freedom from the overwhelming price of our sins which is a price we can never pay. JESUS PAID IT ALL!
Today, if you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior, please repeat these words with me:
Jesus, I am a sinner, forgive me! Father, cleanse me with the precious blood of our Savior, Jesus. God, let me seek, know, and understand You like no one else does.
God throw each one of my sins in the sea of forgetfulness never to be remembered by You again.
I receive Jesus, as my personal Savior. Today, I am free from sin, death, and every burden.
God, bless me with a knowledge of who You are.
Thank You for loving me the way that you do, never giving up on me, and for pursuing me relentlessly.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Merry Christmas. Our Savior is born!

God, help me find happiness in my life!

happywoman-570883_1920

Are you happy? Are you delightfully happy? Do you ask yourself all the time, “What is wrong with me? Why aren’t I happy? When will I finally be happy? What has to happen for me to be truly happy?
Here is a small nugget. Happiness can start today with gratitude. Yes, gratitude. Something so simple but so beneficial.
Gratitude can change your attitude, change your outlook, change the way you see things. It can also change the way you treat other people.
Gratefulness causes a different mindset. It changes the atmosphere.
Gratefulness improves our mental, emotional, and physical well being.
Studies have found that gratefulness improves our happiness, our emotions, our health, our self-esteem, and our sleep. It also increases our empathy and produces fewer aches and pains.
Gratefulness reminds us of how far God has brought us.
Gratefulness brings HOPE to where God will take us next!
The voice of gratefulness used regularly will always help you to speak positive responses and see things in a positive light.
Gratefulness will always invite the blessings of God to overtake your life.
You might be saying that there isn’t much in your life to be grateful for.
There has to be at least one thing, no matter how small and insignificant others might think that one thing is.
Focus on that one thing. Be grateful for that one thing and watch as God starts to open your eyes to see other things to be thankful for.
Once you see the possibilities of additional items to be grateful for, God will start to bring opportunities for more blessings and more gratefulness.
Is being grateful all the time an easy thing to do? The answer is, “no!” If it were an easy thing to do, everyone would do it.
It takes practice, dedication, patience, and diligence.
Complaining all the time is a lot easier than being thankful.
When you compare the outcomes of complaining against the results of being thankful, thankfulness wins hands down.

Who are you, and who’s, are you?

word-have-powerWP3.23.19

Who are you, and who’s, are you?
Sometimes we are our hardest critic. Your voice tells you things that aren’t true about yourself.
Your voice tells you that nobody loves you. God’s voice says that you are loved beyond your human comprehension.
Your voice tells you that you will never escape poverty. God’s voice says that He comes to give you an abundant life.
Your voice tells you that you are not brave and outspoken. Gods’ voice says that you are bold as a lion.
Your voice says you will always fail. God’s voice says that you are already victorious.
Stop listening to your voice. Verbally utter God’s spoken about who you are, what you are, and who’s you are.
His word has final authority! So speak His final authoritative words over yourself.
Our lives HAVE to line up with God’s words. So speak His words. Never stop uttering His words over yourself and your loved ones.
His words say you are His child. As His child, He only wants the very best for you.
Know who you are! You are the apple of His eye, His favorite, and His greatest creation. You are loved with an unconditional love that you will not fully understand until you are standing in His holy presence.

Today, I am filled with new levels of gratefulness.

trust in God3.24.18wp

Who is like our GOD? Who can compare to Him? No one! He is the one true living God! I have to worship Him for He is truly worthy. Nothing and no one can compare to Him.
Today, I am filled with a new level of gratitude towards Him. He as taken care of me in an unexplainable way.
Just as He changed my own life, He will forever change your life for the better. What He has in store for you is something greater.
That something greater is something beyond your wildest dreams and thoughts.
I have to say “Thank You” to Him. He loved me even when I was unlovable, He is everything to me, and there are no mere human words to describe how much I love Him.
When the enemy set out to destroy me, our God took care of me, watched over me, and sent His angels to protect me.
When I was suffering for the consequences of my actions when I chose my choices over God’s when I opened doors that He told me not to open, and when I disobeyed Him, He loved me anyway. He shielded me from the sins that came with along my disobedience.
Just as He did these things for me, He will do the same for you. His word says that He is no respecter of persons.
Today, I say to you seek Him now for His word say that one day He will be searched for and not found. Voices will call out to Him, but He will not answer(Prov1:28).
Do not let that day come upon you without seeking Him first.

 

 

Today, we pray!

prayer-in-wood-9.16.17WP

On this day that our nation and world is coming together to pray, use it to pray for things that you don’t normally pray for.
Pray for the healing of our nation and world. Pray that hate will come to an end. Pray that God will expose every plot to kill innocent people.
Pray for all lies to be exposed in our government, our nation, our congress, our cities, and our towns.
Pray that truth will prevail.
Pray that God will be brought back to the forefront of our lives where He belongs.
Pray that prayer is brought back to our schools. Pray for the safety and security of our children.
Pray that our eyes turn back to God. Pray to ask the Holy Spirit to convict us when we don’t seek God first.
Pray for the protection of our brave men and women of our military.
Pray for all these endless wars to come to an abrupt, swift, and peaceful end.
Pray for the women facing the decision of abortion. Pray that God will move on their heart to seek alternative actions. Life is a precious gift given my almighty God.
Pray for the President, his protection, his administration, and for the respect for the office of the President be prevalent once again.
Even if you don’t like him, God’s word tells us to pray for our leaders. His word also tells us to pray for our enemies. If you feel the President is an enemy, pray anyway. God tells us to. For through our prayer of our enemies, our animosities dissipate.
Through our prayer, God gives clarity, forgiveness, peace, mercy for those who have offended us, His grace, and blessings.
Pray that God will draw you closer to Him. There is no more significant place to dwell.

Can God use you?

Yes, LordWP4.2719

Never think God can’t use you! He uses imperfect people to complete His perfect plans.
Moses argued with God about His plans, instructions, and directions BUT GOD powerfully used Moses.
David had an illicit affair with, BUT GOD rose David to a kinghood from the place of being a shepherd boy.
Noah loved his wine and nudity, BUT GOD used him to save and preserve humanity, animals, and birds.
Jonah ran away from God, but God used him anyway.
Sarah was impatient and pursued her plans in place of Gods to bring His promise sooner, BUT GOD did not hold that against her.
Gideon was a doubter, BUT GOD transformed him anyway into a great warrior.
Do not think that your past can dictate where God will place you.
Do not think that God cannot use someone like you.
You are the apple of God’s eye, and He has set aside great plans and a victorious destiny for you.
Even if you doubt, run away, worry, or have an imperfection that you think disqualifies you, God will use you!
All you have to do as ask for God’s merciful forgiveness for these transgressions. Then speak these four powerful words to God.
“Yes, God, use me!”

HE IS RISEN! Happy Easter.

tomb-jesus-christ-risen-easterWP4.21.19LG

He IS RISEN! Jesus defeated death, the grave, all burdens, all sickness known to man, and Satan.
Today, we celebrate our glorious Savior! He gave His all for us and paid the ultimate price for every one of us. He is the unblemished lamb of God.
With His sacrifice, He forever created a bridged back to our heavenly Father.
Jesus suffered immense pain, anguish, beatings, mockery, torture, hatred, and the agonizingly slow death of suffocation. He did this for you! Never doubt how much our Savior and God love you.

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 the prayer, you are born again.  A new child in Christ.  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.  Joel Osteen, Pastor Paula White, Bishop TD Jakes, and Hank Kunneman are just to name a few of my favorites.

Also, seek God as often as possible through prayer and by constantly reading the bible, which is God’s word.

Via the bible (God’s word), God will start to reveal things to you.  His word is also your spoken weapon to utilize 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 own word(the bible).  Never forget these things about the bible! God’s word spoken out loud will give you victory in every battle you face.

God bless you!
