While an intimate relationship with Jesus is costly, and we forfeit our personal wants and desires, the gain becomes immeasurable. When we submit to His ways, we unleash a powerful force that man cannot stop. The benefits of living a life surrendered to Him far out weighs the things we have to give up.
When you live in harmony with the ways of the Lord, you get heavenly provision, protection and favor. Hey – those are things that money cannot buy.
Some of the toughest challenges in our lives have to be met by the power much higher than human ability. Cash in on some heavenly favor and watch how things work out for the best.

As our days come and go, we should always be mindful of what we think and what we say. Did you know that your words are life or death? The things we say are a power tool and can impact what appears in our world. Today let’s pray for parents who are going through a valley experience with their children – especially teenagers.
A woman worried about her child’s future contacted me yesterday and asked that I pray for her child who is unsure if she is saved. She is lost and very displaced. Starving for guidance and security. The mother is in tears because the child won’t come home and is filled with fear that her child may not come out of this place. All I could do was to point her heavenward. God has all the answers. He sees the end from the beginning.
When our path become dark and dreary – we must be very careful to speak those things that are not, as though they were. That’s what the scripture instructs us to do. Our faith will grow when it is tested. The darkest hour is always before the dawn. We cannot give in to the struggles of this world. Either we believe God or we don’t. Either we wait for Him in peace or we worry. God always, always comes through for His children. He is working all things together for our good. Find a scripture to stand on and wait on Him!

Our God is stronger….. Our God is mighty…….. Lord you are higher than any other. Our God is Healer, awesome in power. Who can stand against Him? No one and no thing!
This past weekend women gathered from every walk of life, and we encounter Him. He touched is all with His mighty hand and healed us – set us free. We cried, we laughed, we shared and loved on each other. It was amazing to see women together honoring our Father in heaven as we felt His gentle touch. Together we laid down our cares and pick up a new love for Him and each other. He wiped away our tears!
Hold on to the words God has spoken over our lives. Hold on to the healing. Hold on to the blessings of our God. Nothing can take away what God has given us – we won’t let it happen. When we stand in the power of His might – we become whole. #realwomen #realstory #healed #setfree #happy #love
And when my heart is overwhelmed…… lead me to that ROCK that is higher than I! Some days seem to be filled with pressure, important tasks, deadlines, massive communications and the like. Every single time we approach a mighty move of God – we humans have every chance to get overwhelmed. Refuse to!
This week is exceptionally busy for me. As we prepare for the women to gather At His Feet on Friday, my days are just not long enough. I have decided that if God be for me – who can be against me. I am NOT going to let all the questions, distractions, and moving parts overwhelm me. Instead I am overwhelmed by gratitude. Super grateful that God has prepared me for such a time as this.
The women are coming forth and sharing the issues of their hearts. Some are hungry for God, even desperate. No matter what you may be facing today – we can all rest assured that our God is in total control. He has every single detail of our lives already worked out. No need to fret, worry or fall apart now. The best is yet to come!

In pursuit of our God-given purpose – we will have to use our faith and allow Him to add His super to our natural. The larger the assignment – the larger He gets. Our abilities are limited, His ability is limitless.
Over 17 years ago as I came out of the valley, a lady walked over to me in church one day and said “the Lord is going to use your voice to set others free.” I received her words and saw a picture of myself standing in front of a room full of hurting women. Today I can tell you that what she spoke over my life is coming to fruition as I host the First Annual Women’s conference, “Heal Our Hearts Lord”. AMAZING!
When God gives you a vision it may take you beyond your own understanding and set you up to accomplish His perfect will. It is not of our own doing – it is by His grace and power. We only need to be obedient, live in righteousness and humility. Then God can show up and do the amazing things that He has planned. Our lives are truly meant to be vessels that He can pour in to – so we have something good to pour out. Live with purpose!

The love of God is renewing and refreshing; vital and life-giving; comforting and blessing. And believe it or not – He is always pursuing His children. He wants us to live a life that is pleasing to Him so He can pour out His rich blessings.
During that season that I lived in the valley of the shadow of death…… I never really felt He was pursuing me. But what I did encounter were people who would walk into that den of sin and say “what are you doing here? You don’t belong here.” Those words still resound in my spirit because God had literally sent someone to tell me I was in the wrong place doing the wrong things.
Now when I look back, I realize that He was reaching for me – to bring me out of that pit. Now I get up in the morning pursuing HIM! Our days are numbered, and filled with trials, challenges and victory dances. We never know what the day will bring – but we can certainly rest assured that our God is always waiting to hear from us, to help us and to rescue us.

We humans sometimes struggles with forgiving people who have done us wrong, hurt us, lied on us, misused us……… While holding on to past events does not make it go away – it certainly holds us back from being free. When we get to a place where we can forgive somebody for a huge violation – we unconsciously set ourselves for automatic forgiveness in the future.
The reason I have zero tolerance for domestic violence is because my sister was murdered by her boyfriend years ago. It was one of the most painful things I have ever encountered. My life was torn and I was numb. It took years for me to get over that pain and I never even thought about forgiving him – until I met Jesus.
While turning the corner to restore my life to wholeness and healing I came face-to-face with that painful episode and God had to take my hand and show me how to forgive him. I have never forgot life with my sister, but had forgotten about the murder and went on with my life. One day God gently brought it up and told me I needed to take that skeleton out of the closet and forgive him in order to be freed. With tears in my eyes I allowed my Lord to open that painful space so He could replace that human error with His love.
There will be times in our lives when we MUST grow past the painful situations, in order to truly be free. Take courage and trust when facing your giants. God always delivers!
