Just Enough – Spread the News

God meets our individual and immediate needs. During the Israelite’s journey through the wilderness, they unfortunately did a lot of looking back and complaining. They were never truly satisfied with how God protected them and covered them. They always seemed to doubt that God’s provision was truly enough for their survival. It’s really a sad situation. How often do we do the same? We cry out to God, sometimes from a state of complaining, but yet, He chooses to come through for us. He chooses to provide us with what will meet our individual and immediate needs, but since it is not to our specifications and doesn’t meet the measurements we have set, then we are disappointed or even upset with God. Let’s take a look at the story of the manna and quail that God provided straight from Heaven […]

My Protector, My Shield

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: I love You, Lord; You are my strength. You Lord are my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God, You are my rock, in whom I find protection. You are my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I called on You, Lord, who is worthy of praise, and You saved me from my enemies. Lord, everything that is, is because of You. Nothing that I have done has gotten me to this point in life. Because I have trusted in You, in your merciful and loving way, You have seen fit to rescue me. Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.” Lord, I boast in Your goodness. I boast in Your faithfulness. I boast in Your righteousness and Your great umbrella of protection that shelters me from life’s storms and causes me to rise high above my circumstances […]

It’s Over

If it’s not here yet, YOUR victorious breakthrough is still coming. It’s over, or just about. Let God complete His mission in you! So, Good News first! It’s ALREADY over! You may not be able to see it, but victory is already yours. Let God complete His mission in your life, then all things will be made clear. This is for someone right now, and for others later. I come to encourage you to hold on. You will get there if you stay with the Lord. Please don’t get discouraged because you are not as far along in the process as you’d like to be. God is still working it altogether for good. He is taking every last piece of it, and as the potter, He is molding it all together into a masterpiece fit for display of His glory, specially and uniquely designed by Him. Yep! Your life! Claim it! Believe it! Receive it! […]

Audible Audiobook Announcement – “You Are More Than Enough – Don’t Look Back Finish the Process”

If I may have a moment of your time to share my heart and exciting news with you that would be greatly appreciated. Look Again! I have been highly anticipating the Audiobook release of my second book, “You Are More Than Enough – Don’t Look Back Finish the Process”. This step of my journey completes my obedience to the call of God for this particular venture. I have never in my life been this “outgoing – put myself on the line” type of woman. But through my tests and trials, God is developing me into who He wants me to be. I am thankful and I am excited! The opportunity to share a message of hope to the world through my Kindle books, Paperback books, and NOW through voice with an audio version of the book is simply amazing to me! The excitement is just bubbling over! […]

There Is No Other

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I come to You this day with remembrance of the things You have done in the past. There is no other who could have sustained me and provided me with all that I needed. You know me better than I know myself; therefore, all that comes from You is always exactly what is essential for me, even when I cannot understand it all. For You alone are God! You ARE God, and there is none like You. Only You can tell me the future before it even happens. Everything You plan will come to pass, for You do whatever You wish. You have everything under control. I can put my heart into Your hands and trust that it will be safe and secure. There is no other in heaven or on earth that can stand up next to You […]

If It’s Supposed to Be

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, whatever is supposed to be in my life, at the right time, You, the Lord, will make it happen. Lord, Your timing is everything. When I attempt to rush the steps or jump right over a few, Your chastening hand of protection always pulls me back in line, right where I belong. Help me not to be resistant to Your call. When You speak Lord, give me an ear to hear and a spirit of obedience to do Your will. Help me to wait on what You have because what I can’t do for myself, You offer me the best. I will be still in Your presence and wait patiently for You to act. God, I will not waste my time worrying about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes, because what’s for me will be. While I wait with gladness and cease from being angry, God, Your Word says that the wicked will be destroyed […]

He Tried It

Have you ever felt powerless; in need of direction? Even with the direction or what you believe is the right key, do you feel as though you really cannot seem to unlock the truth of God’s Word in your life? Do you feel locked out? Has your patience been tried again and again? Well, guess what? HE TRIED IT and allowed it and it is developing your patience. Watch out now! Who tried it? God tried it! What did He allow? The development of your patience. How did He do it? Through the testing of your faith. See! You really aren’t locked out. You’ve just been trying over and over again to use your rusty old key that will not fit any lock that you try until You let the Lord do what He wants to do in and through your life. When He supplies the oil of His anointing, the key will slide right on in and turn towards your OVERWHELMING VICTORY through Jesus Christ. James 1:3 (Amplified Bible – AMP) says, “Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace].” Hmmmmm! Struggle = Peace? […]

Just When…That’s When You Trust Him Most

Isaiah 41:10 is always one of my go to verses, but today I want to look at it from the Amplified Bible. Isaiah 41:10 (AMPC) says, “Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.” Just when God is in the process of bringing forth a tremendous out pour upon your life, that is when Satan will show up right at the finish line. But we must not fear. Why? Because there is nothing to fear. Oh yes! He will attempt to trip us up and make it seem as though what God said is not true and what is happening in our life, which is meant to turn things around and bring great joy, is not real or not really of God. But this is simply a trick of the enemy […]

Stepping Out on Faith – God All I Want is You

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, thank You for the tests and trials. Thank You for the one-on-one time that they have enabled me to spend with You. Thank You for Your strength in times of great need. As You continue to pour into my life so that I may be a blessing to others, help me to hear Your voice and it, alone, so that when You speak, I will, without hesitation, continue to step out on faith. I want to continue to climb this ladder from the pit that Satan orchestrated for me, to MY OVERWHELMING VICTORY! As You have called Abram, You have also called me to do Your will, to go to the land that You will show me. You have a purpose and a plan for my life to bless me so that I will be a blessing to others […]

No Matter Which Way The Wind May Blow

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I come to You today just as I am. Some days are a bit more challenging then others, but in the good and the bad, no matter which way the wind may blow, my response will always be to turn to You. I can rest in knowing that I belong to You. I have already won a victory over everyone and everything that comes against me, because the Spirit who lives in me is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. Thank God! You give me victory over sin and death through my Lord Jesus Christ. I can be strong and immovable. I will always work enthusiastically for You, my Lord, for I know that nothing I do for You Lord is ever useless […]

Remember Who You Are and Whose You Are…Build Yourself Up in Christ

When things just do not seem to be going your way, remember who you are and WHOSE you are and build yourself up in Christ. You are God’s divine child who is blessed and surrounded with His everlasting shield of love. Life in and of itself does not always leave us feeling encouraged. There may not always be someone walking beside us acting as our cheerleader, pushing and prodding us to keep the faith. No one may be shouting in our ear, “HOLD ON! BE STRONG!” We must find ourselves remembering who we are and WHOSE you are; building ourselves up in Christ Jesus. How do we do this? It always goes back to the Word of God […]

Tired? God will Carry Your Load

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, I thank You for the ability to pile my troubles on Your shoulders, for Your Word says that You are readily accessible so that I may simply unpack my burdens and give them to You. You will take care of me. You will not permit me to slip and fall, for I am godly. Lord, I long to find that place of release in You, to truly realize and fully understand that I need not wrestle with one single thing because You have my back. You are watching over me. I desire to make this a habit, O God, so that giving everything to You becomes so much a part of my nature that it will be just like walking, talking, and breathing. In place of the anxiety and worry that has once been my constant companion, which heavily weighed me down and caused me to be in a state of pure exhaustion, God, thank You for deliverance both seen and unseen […]

Where’s the Power? Word’s Aren’t Enough…

We can’t just speak the Good News, the Holy Spirit must be present to provide the power. When we speak what God gives to us in reference to the Good News of Jesus Christ, we must make sure that our words are not just mere words, but that they are backed by the power of the Holy Spirit that is in operation within our lives. It is the power of the Holy Spirit that penetrates the hearts of those who are listening and evokes the change that begins to take place within their lives. What we have to say, even when it is truth, will not go very far if the Holy Spirit does not go along with it to break down stony hearts and cut through the chains that have many imprisoned within the chaos of their hearts and minds. Let us pray and ask God to word our mouths and let the power of the Holy Spirit do the work that it was intended to do […]

Today’s Lesson

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, as I sit in the room with the Holy Spirit as my instructor, first I ask that You wipe the slate clean. Anything that is not like You, O Lord, I ask You to erase the board and give me a fresh start in You. Help me to be alert and to focus on the lessons that I must learn. Help me to rise early to hear what the Holy Spirit has to speak to me. I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in Your words. As I study Your Word each day, teach me, for I am eager to learn. I am attentive to Your voice and am confident that through Your teaching, I will pass the test. Your Word, O Lord, when You send it out, it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all You want it to, and it will prosper everywhere You send it. Your Word, it brings forth life! God, Your Word speaks to me as I receive and take in all that the Holy Spirit imparts. Your Holy Spirit gives me revelation, illumination, and teaches me how to apply it to the matters of my life […]

Pick the Right Key

The Key to Overwhelming Victory is Obedience. Pick the Right Key. The above statement has been my takeaway from my wilderness experience. When God is ready to start bringing us out of our test or trial, which may not occur in a flash, it will most likely require our obedience to His Word. We have a part to play within our healing and deliverance timeline. Yes! God has a purpose and a plan and He has a set desire for when He wants to bring us through, but our actions, either good or bad, could prolong or speed up the process to our Overwhelming Victory. The goal: our faith is magnified front and center and Christ is glorified. God’s greater purpose must be fulfilled as part of our individual deliverances. He wants to use us. He wants our testimony to glorify Him. He wants us to be an example of obedience to others who may be watching our lives, trying to see the God that we say rests, rules, and abides within us […]
