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.

Christmas – the only reason for the season!

Who is Jesus? And why did He come to earth to live as a man?

Have you ever really thought about that?

A Godly King gave up His throne for you.

Think about that for a second!

Let that sink in!

The King of all Kings and the God of all gods gave up His throne to be born as a child, live as a man, then died on an old, rugged cross for you.

Jesus is the walking, breathing word of almighty God Himself.

Why did Jesus give up His throne for you?  

The answer is simple.

It is LOVE!  

God loves you beyond anything you can comprehend. 

A love so large that it is consuming, engulfing, encompassing, and enveloping. 

It is a love in incompressible to us humans that most of us will never know the full scope of His love for us until we are standing in His presence at the end of our life.

Even God’s word describes His love for us. 

Psalm 8:4–8 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

What is man, that thou art mindful of him?

And the son of man, that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels,

And hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;

Thou hast put all things under his feet:

All sheep and oxen,

Yea, and the beasts of the field;

The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea,

And whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

Job 7:17

God’s word also tells us that He freely gave His own precious Son, Jesus, for all humanity. John 3:16

John 3:16 ESV – For God So Loved the World – “For God – Bible Gateway

In Isaiah 54:10, God’s word says that mountains and hills may be removed, but God’s love will not depart from us.

Isaiah 54:10 ESV – For the mountains may depart and the – Bible Gateway

With everything going on in our world, there is no better time than today to accept Jesus as your personal Savior.

Fear, uncertainties, poverty, viruses, and talks of war are swirling around us at this very moment.

Today, declare Jesus as your Savior, as no man is promised a tomorrow.

If you would like to receive Jesus as your personal Savior, please pray with me:

God, I believe You are the one true living God. 

God, I am a sinner. Please forgive me. Father, cleanse me of all unrighteousness.

God, I believe that Jesus is Your one true Son. 

I believe Jesus was born a man, was crucified for my sins, and on the third day ascended back to heaven, and I believe He now sits at Your right hand. 

Today, I accept Jesus as my personal Savior. 

In the name above all names, Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Read your Bible daily and seek God’s presence via worship and prayer if you prayed that prayer.

If possible, find a church where the full gospel is taught.

Let it be a church where the power of God’s presence is felt and moving.

If you need prayers for fear, depression, anxieties, and hopelessness, please find them here:

I pray that this new year brings us tremendous changes and new beginnings. 

I pray that God blesses you and your family, that He keeps you all safe and healthy, and that the abundance of God is poured out on you and your family.

In the name of Jesus, Amen. 

Loneliness – you are never home alone.

Loneliness, are you feeling it? Is it a constant companion? That empty hollow feeling compounded by fear. I understand. 

I, too, have felt it. That dark empty feeling that is trying to overtake every part of your thoughts and being. 

Whatever you do, you cannot let it win. Don’t stay and dwell in that empty dark place of hopelessness. 

It is dangerous there. Staying there in that utter place of despair makes it easier to succumb to the thoughts of suicide.

There is something that you need to understand. You are never alone, you have God, and you will ALWAYS have God!

He will never leave or abandon you (Heb 13:5) https://biblehub.com/hebrews/13-5.htm

Call out to Him.

I know many say that God isn’t real because you can’t see Him. You may not be able to see Him, but you can always feel His presence. 

His presence is real. How does it feel in the presence of God?

It is peaceful there. In God’s presence, there is His love. A love that we don’t know as a human. It is a love that penetrates every fiber of your being. His love is consuming, powerful, engulfing, and strong. His love is never-ending. In His presence, His love has no boundaries. 

It is a love that you will never feel from another human. It is a love that is indescribable. The love of God is something you can only experience while in His presence. 

How do you reach His presence? We can come into God’s presence via prayer and primarily through our worship.

Our worship has power! Our worship, spoken decrees and declarations of God’s words and His promises, and prayer are the most potent weapons we have as Christians. 

These things are the weapons we use to defeat all the fear, doubt, loneliness, emptiness, addictions, etc., we are facing or will ever face in our lives. 

Right now, more than ever before, we are facing so much doubt and fear. Now, right now, is the time to seek God. If you don’t know Him, now is the time to make Him the center of your life. 

Those in power are seeking to control every aspect of our lives. 

How do we combat that power? With the promises of God. 

What are the promises of God? His promises are written in His word, which is the Holy Bible. 

Make no mistakes about it. There is only one true living God. There is only one Savior, His son Jesus, and there is only one true living spirit of God. That is the Holy Spirit. These three are the Holy Trinity. 

Today is the perfect day to seek God, to accept Jesus as your personal Savior. 

I am not talking about a cookie-cutter relationship with God. I am not talking about saying repeat prayers to seek God’s forgiveness and love. 

That is man’s idea of how God works. With our God, there is no middle man. 

No person, saint, or the Virgin Mary, can forgive your sins. Please, no mistake, I am in no way bashing the mother of Jesus. I thank God for her and her bravery to become the mother of our living Savior, Jesus.

Only God, through our Savior Jesus, can forgive all our sins. 

How do you have a personal relationship with God? That is easy. Seek Him, and you will find Him (Matt7:7)https://www.biblehub.com/matthew/7-7.htm. Call out to Him, and He will answer you (Psl91:15) https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Psalms-91-15/.

God isn’t complicated. It is us as humans that complicate Him with our silly rules and our ideas.

How do you accept Jesus as your personal Savior? That is simple too. If you genuinely believe that Jesus is the one true son of God, that He rose from the dead after taking your place on the cross, then repeat this prayer:

Would you please pray with me? “Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins. God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. I know Christ died on the cross for me. I know He was crucified, buried, and then arose on the third day. I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God. I receive Jesus as my Savior. Amen. 

Do you need more scriptures for sickness, addiction, depression, etc.? Please read this previous post:

If you prayed that prayer of Salvation above to receive Jesus as your Savior, you might be asking what is next. Well, if you can, find a good church that believes in the Holy Trinity, Jesus is our Savior, and God is the one true living God. Also, they must believe in the resurrection. And, they must believe that God’s word is the Holy Bible. 

If you are unable to find a church like that, keep trying and praying for it. You also need to delve into God’s word. Read it daily and as often as possible. 

Also, pray, seek God, and worship God. He is worthy to receive all our worship.

God bless each one of you.

Happy father’s day.

Who is a father? A father is a leader for his family. A father is a provider. A father is the protector of his family. A father is supportive, loving, caring, and a great listener.
A father shows each of his children what they are worth. He establishes their strength with his affirming words.
Can any man be a father? No, unfortunately not. Any many can be a dad, but becoming a father takes hard work.
A father sticks it out in the good and in the difficult times.
A father shows his children how to work hard for what they want.
A father instills endurance in his children. He teaches them how never to quit.
A father wants only the very best for his children.
A father showers his children with gifts while enforcing the rules to ensure his children become productive adults.
A father must discipline his children to ensure they understand there are consequences when we break the rules.
A father establishes strength in his sons and develops values in his daughters.
Yes, becoming a great father takes work, but it is well worth all the effort.
Today, I wish every father a Happy father’s day.
I pray God gives you the wisdom, direction, strength, and endurance to raise a wonderful family.
Remember always to lay a strong foundation of God for your child will always return to that foundation (Prov22:6)

Our words have POWER to change the trajectory of our lives.

Not happy with the path your life is taking? Use your words to change your life’s trajectory.
Our words have power. We give life or death with our words (Prov18:21).
Stop speaking words with negative connotations assigned to them. Stop speaking words of destruction, hate, frustration, fear, death, and failure over your life and the lives of your family.
Start speaking positive words that give life, peace, abundance, victory, joy, happiness, protection, love, and unity.

America, God will not allow You to become a nation of socialism.

God wants revival. His word says that He will pour out His Spirit on ALL flesh (Joel2:28).
I believe that God is ready to do that now.
I know a lot of people are wondering and asking how God can do this now?
In all appearances, America is falling into the depths of socialism.
Many think that America is over. These individuals are looking at the situation America is in with their worldly eyes.
But God’s word tells us not to see things with our natural eyes but to see things with His Godly vision.
Many have given up on God and think that there is no hope for America’s future.
I said this before, and I will repeat it. God has NOT forsaken America! God has not walked away from Her citizens.
Many prayed for America’s recovery, and they feel that their prayers were unanswered.
Many are asking, did we not pray enough? Did we fail in the amount of prayer, fasting, and giving? No, I don’t believe we did.
I believe that heaven is saturated with all of our prayers.
God, cannot ignore all that prayer. All that prayer in heaven will cause God to move to answer the prayers of the righteous. He has to, but please remember that God moves on His timing and not on our timing.
God is not done! Hold onto that.
Don’t stop praying, don’t stop worshipping, and don’t stop fasting!

Most of all continue to repent for America. Repent for the sins of America as a whole. I am not saying that you as an individual are the one who caused this sin, but I am saying that you as an American can stand in the gap for those who will not repent.

We must seek God’s forgiveness for America’s sins. There will come a day when us seeking forgiveness for those will not repent right now will form a bridge for more and more people to seek God and ask for their own repentance.

We must continue to seek repentance for the murder of innocent babies via abortions, for the wars America has sought for the wrong reasons, and for not supporting Israel.
I believe we will all see God’s hand move across this nation to complete the fulfillment of His will.
After God moves in this miracle, we will see His Spirit outpour on all flesh. We will see many turn back to God. We will see miraculous healings that God can only do.
Do not sit in your disappointment, in your silence, in your fear, or your sadness.
Whatever you do, don’t be silenced by this disappointment.
Continue to speak up with your voice, with your prayer, and with your worship. Let your voice be heard in some manner. I believe God is testing our faith.
Why does He test us? Simple, His test come to build our faith and trust in Him.
America will not fail. She will flourish like never before, and so many of those lost small businesses will come back.
I believe God will move His mighty hand to take on our giants. Those giants include but are not limited to this nation’s debt, the greed that has gripped so many Americans, and those who sought to destroy God’s people and His country.
God will move to expose all those who have lied and deceived so many Americans.
God will expose all those involved in the attempt to stop His will from coming to pass.
God will reveal them all! Glory be to God.

If you would like to receive Jesus as your Savior, please pray this prayer:
God, forgive me. I am a sinner and have come short of Your expectations. God, I believe Jesus is Your Son and that He died for me. Today, I accept Jesus as my personal Savior. God, let me know You like no one else does. God, use me for Your glory. In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen.

Here is another prayer if you need strength and encouragement:
God, don’t let my voice be silenced by fear and intimidation.
God, let me speak up loud with my prayer and with my voice of knowing right from wrong. God, do not let me be intimidated by those who seek to silence me.
Don’t let me live in fear. God, fill me with Your boldness, fire, and passion.
Father, I have doubted You and what You are capable of. God, I have given up on You. I have seen the direction this world appears to be heading, and I gave in.
I convinced myself that You would not rescue us.
God, You are the ONLY one who can fix this mess we created. God, man, has exhausted all their efforts. Now it’s Your turn.
God, forgive me.
I will hold on to hope and to the expectations of Your promises. I will look to the hills where my help comes from (Psa121:1).
I will worship and be thankful that Your timing is always perfect.
God, give me Godly vision. Let me see things the way that You do. God, give me the patience to wait on Your perfect timing.
I will no longer succumb to fear and intimidation.
God, prepare our hearts and spirits for revival. God, show me what to do to prepare for the end-time harvest.
God, use me for Your glory.
Father, renew my strength, tenacity, and determination.
God, take the blinders off America. Let all see the corruption, deception, greed, hate, and hunger for pure power that has taken over some leaders and individuals.
God, let the truth be known.
Father, restore this nation to You.
In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Was Joe Biden part of God’s plan?

I have spoken to so many who are heavy-hearten over the events of this past week.
Many are angry, frustrated, and some have given up on God’s promise.

There are also many people who are not happy with the radical agenda of this new administration.

We have seen other countries benefiting from the radical policy changes while actual Americans have lost their jobs, lost access to lower medical drug prices, and lost their ability to feel safe with the radical changes in America’s immigration policies.

These frustrated individuals only see darkness and hopelessness ahead with this new administration.

Many do not see a way out.
As for me, I am holding onto the belief that this isnt what God wants for His people.

I am holding onto hope that God isn’t done yet.
If you think God has abandoned us, you are sadly mistaken.
Don’t give up on God!
The situation may look impossible, but that is the realm that God operates in.
He makes the impossible possible.
Why does He do this? He wants all the glory, and He deserves it.
Man has done all he can. Man exhausted every possible road to resolve our current situation.
Now, it is God’s turn.
Don’t give up on the promise of God you were holding on to.
God cannot fail on His promises.
Stand firm now and worship Him for that delivered promise.
God does not work on our time. He will deliver His people on His time, not ours.
God does not operate on man’s time.
Do not give in to what you see in the natural. God works in the supernatural.
Know who God is. He is a miracle worker, a promise keeper, and a way maker!
Stay strong in prayer and God’s presence!
Don’t stop praying! Pray even more now. Never cease in prayer till your breakthrough comes.
Ask God to renew your faith! Ask for forgiveness for the disbelief in your heart. Ask Him to let you see with His vision and hear with Godly ears.
Be patient. Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength.
Be still and know He is God Almighty.

Joy to the world, our Savior, Jesus, is born. Merry Christmas.

Who are we that the God of all creations knows our names?
Who are we that the God of all gods loves us so much?
Who are we to deserve this type of never-ending unconditional love?
We are not extraordinary, but our God makes and sees each of us as unique.
We do not deserve His love, but He gives it freely anyway.
We do not deserve His Son, Jesus, to save us.
We are sinners and are unworthy of His tremendous gift, but our God loves us anyway. So much so that He gave us the ultimate precious gift this season.
Though unworthy, He gave His son for each of us to no longer be slaves to our sins. Thank You, God, for your amazing grace!
Today, we celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world.
Jesus is God’s word to come to life.
Even though we have been marred with heaviness, sadness, separation, and feared this year, we cannot forget the real reason for this season.
Today, we should be full of joy and delight with the knowledge that we have been spared the fate of damnation through our Savior.
Jesus, our Savior, is born for each of us to have everlasting life.
Merry Christmas to each of you, and may the joy of this season carry you through into next year.
