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!

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.

Know, use, and proclaim ALL the names of God!

Choose to worship!

When you are facing struggles, do you complain or worship?
Strength does not come from winning. Our strength is defined by our struggles.
When we struggle, God is working something out in us. He is building up our strength.
He is developing our character, He is refining us, He is filtering us, and He is purifying us.
Does it hurt to be refined, filtered, purified, and developed? Heck yes, it hurts.
Trust that God knows exactly what He is doing. He is preparing us for our divine purpose.

When you go through struggles, it can be so easy to stay focused on the struggle itself.
We tend to focus on the “what ifs.”

Keeping your focus on the ‘what ifs”, can invite fear, anxiety, worries, insomnia, stress, and unhealthiness into your life.
Worrying about the “what ifs” can also open doors to addictions as we seek comfort in other places/things besides in the presence of God.
Stop focusing on those pesky “what ifs.” Place your focus on God.
When we focus on God, all our concerns, worries, stresses, fears, etc. will fall to the wayside.
Our focus on God diminishes everything else. We begin to remember that ALL things are possible with God.
Instead of stressing out on those pesky “what ifs,” start worshiping. As you worship, God will be brought back to the forefront.

So when you are struggling, don’t complain. Worship instead! Worship God for His refinement, His knowledge, and for the strength that He is building w/in you.

 

God, we come in agreement.

God, we come in agreement via prayer and lift every person who is in the midst of hurricane Florence.
Father, there are those who have lost everything they own. Others have even lost precious loved ones.
They feel alone and helpless. God, engulf them with Your endless love.
Holy Spirit, comfort them and give them Your peace that passes understanding.
Let them know that everything will be fine. Fill them with confidence, strength, and boldness to speak this into existence.
God, fill every need they have. Let the fear, sorrow, and bitterness that may be trying to attach itself to them be scattered now in the name of Jesus.
Although they have endured so much, let worship and praise rise from their lips to Your ears.
Father, we give You thanks for every first responder. We thank you for their bravery & courage.
God, we are so thankful for every volunteer. We thank You for their hearts that are full of love and willingness to help those who are suffering.
Angels, in the name of Jesus, we dispatch you to help every person crying out to God for help.
Angels, help them, guide them, and protect them. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

What is in His name?

jesus-written-in-ash-sand-WP7.28.18

His name is alpha and omega(Rev22:13). He is the beginning and the end. All started with Him, and all will finish with Him.
His name speaks provision. God shall provide all my needs(Phil4:19).
His name speaks of unconditional love as Jesus stood in your place at the cross(Rom3:23-31).
His name speaks of healing. For our Savior is our healer(Exo23:25).
His name speaks of strength (Jer16:19). He is my strong tower and my refuge during times of distress.
Speak the name that will never lose its power. If you have no words to speak, then speak the one name that holds all power, Jesus.
Speak His name, and it changes the atmosphere. All demons must flee at the mention of His name.
No matter how much the world works to desensitize the power of His name, it will never lose one ounce of power that it contains.

Call on HIS name!

god-is-love-WP7.28.18

When you feel empty and alone, speak the name that always brings love.
When you feel like you can’t endure one more heartbreak, speak the sweetest name.
When you feel like no one cares, speak the only name that brings serenity.
When you feel afraid, speak the name that tells fear it HAS TO leave.
When life has beat you down, and you have no words to pray, speak the most powerful name. Speak the name of “Jesus!”
His name contains freedom, redemption, forgiveness, restoration, healing, fearlessness, peace, serenity, unity, abundance, strength, protection, foundations, courage, boldness, and love.
His name holds it ALL!
Never believe that His name holds no power. The name of Jesus is the most powerful word in EVERY language! His name IS power! Use it!

Let us continue to pray together for this approaching storm, Irma, and for the storm that is churning in the Atlantic Ocean, Jose. God, please protect us! God, we are calling out to You for Your mercy. God, this country that You blessed us with is under attack by storms, floods, hurricanes, & fires. God, her are cries for help and do not turn Your face from us. God, shift these storms trajectories. God, lessen their power in the name of Jesus. Jesus, You spoke the winds and the waves the told them to be calm.  With Your mere words, You calmed the storm.  Savior, the same power that lives in You resides in us.  God, we tell Irma, in the name of Jesus, to desist. We tell her to be calm. We command her to shift paths. Jose, in the name of Jesus, we command you to turn and return to the sea.  We command you, Jose, to decrease in your intensity. Father, place a strong hedge of protection around Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and all the East coast states.  God, deflect the winds, rains, waves, & water that is approaching.  God, we lift up all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We lift up all those affected by the floods. We lift up all the islands that have been decimated by Hurricane Irma. We ask for supernatural rebuilding & restoration. God, let our leaders work together to get these individuals the funds they need so badly from our government agencies.  In Jesus' name, we pray and ask these things. Amen. #hurricaneirma #hurricanjose #hurricaneharvey #flood #floods #water #storms #path #hurricaneseason #trajectory #devastation #destructive #protection #God #prayerstillworks #Scripture #word #wordofGod #believe #prayersfortexas #prayer#prayersforlouisiana #prayersforflorida#hedge #angels #prayerworks #Jesus
