Loneliness – are you feeling it as you shelter in place?

Today, we celebrate our Armed Forces. We say, “thank you” to each of them for their bravery, service, and dedication.
Right now, as I am typing these very words, our rights are being threatened. We have been told to stay at home, not go to work, not go outside, to only see our loved ones for medical emergencies, and not to go to our places of worship.
What?? How can this be? We are Americans. We love our freedoms! We are blessed with freedom of speech, worship, to protect ourselves, etc.
These rights are given to every citizen of America.
No law, no decree, no executive order can take these from us.
Yet, we have power-hungry government officials that seem to think they have the power to take our rights away.
We voted these officials into office, and we can vote them out of the office too. We can seek retribution in the courts. In some states, we can even recall officials.
We have to do something. We cannot lay down and let these officials strip away our rights.
If we allow our rights to be taken now, how long will it be until they do it again or find a way to take away our rights permanently.
We are being controlled and silenced. What is the tool they are using to silence us?  Fear of course.
We are silenced from speaking up about our rights and these atrocious attacks on them.
Our worship is being silenced.
That is one thing we cannot allow to happen because God desires and deserves our worship.
When we worship, mountains move, bodies are healed, minds are restored, marriages are made whole again, addictions are broken, and miracles happen.
When we worship, God moves!
Our worship makes all of heaven move on our behalf.
We cannot allow our worship to be silenced!
Our answer to this pandemic is in our worship. The answer to a vaccine is in our worship, and our economy’s recovery is in our worship. America’s breakthrough is in our worship.  America’s next level is in our worship.
Every answer is in our worship.
Whatever happens, do not allow your voice to be silenced! Do not let your worship to be taken away from you.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that you contact your senator, representative, governor, major, your city council, and even the President.
All of us have to take some action now. Call, write, email, sign a petition, start a petition, or peacefully protest.
Let them know that our voices will not be silenced and that we will not sit by as our rights are stripped away.
America, stand up now. If we don’t, God help us!
Don’t give up now. I see God in the midst of all of this. He is at work. He has not and will not ever forget us.
He sees our suffering, and He hears our prayers.
Keep praying, pushing forward, and keep worshiping Him.
Pray without ceasing because that is what His word tells us to do.
Pray fervently. God’s His word says that a fervent prayer availeth much.
As we pursue God fervently, I see a mighty move of God coming because we pushed through and didn’t give up.
God will avenge America. God will restore America and all Her citizens.
I know it easy to become hopeless with so much negativity surrounding us.
That negativity seeks to pull you into its grasps.
Now, let your faith arise. Your faith is what destroys the hopelessness. God will repay your faith because He always honors those with faith.

Our American rights are under attack

Reflections on 2018.

 

stock-vector-faith-will-move-mountains-vector-illustration-with-hand-lettering-religious-quote-541812583.jpg

At this time of the year, we start to reflect on the year that has almost ended.
Some of us regret that another year has almost passed and we didn’t get that thing finished that we were so determined to get done at the begging of the year.
We promised ourselves that we would paint that picture, write that book, complete our book of photography, complete that sculpture, get or CD recorded, or get that presentation together for our latest invention.
Then life happens. Things sidetracked us, and we push that focus and determination to complete that one task way down on our “must do” list.
Here is some excellent news! It’s never too late if you have lost your way.
Don’t be so hard on yourself if you have gotten sidetracked, derailed, detoured, or delayed.
Make up your mind once again to get back on track. Pray to ask God to get you refocused, redetermined, reenergized.
Pray and ask the Holy Spirit for conviction when you start to get off track again in the new year.
Whatever that one thing is that brings happiness, excitement, invigoration, joy into your heart and life, pursue it.
Don’t let go of that. That kind of happiness, desire, and longing in your heart for this one thing is from God above. Make sure this coming year is the year that you boldly step into your divine destiny.
Don’t stop believing that you were created on purpose for a purpose. Every single one of us has a destiny to accomplish for God.
Once God reveals that destiny to you, grab hold of that promise and do not let it go until it is fully completed.

Love God like child again.

When we are children, many of us hear that God loves us more than we can ever imagine.
As a child, we fully & whole heartily believes this.
Somewhere along the line, we start to disbelieve God’s love for us.
We start to question God’s love as we get battered, dinged up, and put through the wringer by this thing called “life.”
We see our lives drift farther and father from were we ever imagined we would end up.
But hold on to the truth of God. He loves us beyond our human comprehension. His love is incomprehensible!

Our words have POWER!

cross-flowers-painted279088172 (3)

Our words have power! Power to cause life OR cause death (Prov18:21).

Do you remember every word you have spoken over your lifetime?

God, remembers them all! His word says that we will account for every word we have spoken(Matt12:36).

Think about that! Each one of us will account for every single word we have ever uttered.

Ugly words, hurtful words, gossiping words, lying words, judging words, berating words, degrading words, humiliating words, or condemning words, God will judge them all.

What words have you been speaking?

I am grateful that our God is a forgiving God. Seek His forgiveness today! A heart that seeks true forgiveness with God will always find it!

Awe-inspiring God!

Our worship.
