Something for the Soul

Good Morning! Hoping each of you had a wonderful and joyous time with your loved ones over the holiday. Thanksgiving goes above and beyond the delicious food and gatherings; it's more so about giving the Lord thanks for all He has done. He continues to bestow his grace and mercy upon his people and we should thank Him for it. He continues to watch over us just like a mother bird and we should thank Him for it. Oh, how my soul loves the One who sits high and looks low. I love my sweet savior, Jesus!

Heavenly Father who art in heaven, walk with us today. We do not know what lies ahead but Father we put our trust in you knowing that you will continue to lead us and guide us all the day long. Father, you have our lives in our hands and we are reminded that all things work together for the good for those who love God. Lord, please provide direction and wisdom as we encounter various situations in our lives. Lord, we may not know how the situations are going to work out but we trust you. Lord, we don't know when the wait will end but we trust you. Father, you said, let the weak now say I am strong. We are strong in the name of the Lord! Father, continue to cover us with your blood. Shield and protect us from dangers seen and unseen. Give us a heart to love like you love. Help us to seek you, daily, without any selfish gains or motives. Let us be like a child, coming with a sincere heart and present our concerns unto you. Help us to be mindful in all our ways. Help us, Lord...Help us, Lord...Help us. Renew our minds and clean our hearts so we may continue to be the light in a dying world; in our churches; in our families; on our jobs. Father, send your angels to comfort the families who have lost loved ones; to the single parent; to the one going through a divorce; to the service men and women; to the one with marital problems; to the sick and lost; to the depressed...send your angels, in the name of Jesus!

Let us continue to be reminded that your word said you would never leave us or forsake us. Lord, we love you today and we thank you for all that you have done and what you continue to do for us. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen!

So my brothers and sisters, may you continue to trust in the One who made the heavens and earth. Believe that God knows your heart and concerns before you even come to Him in prayer. I pray each of you will have a blessed week and until we meet again, Be Encouraged!

Lift Him Up!!!

Psalm 34: 3 reads "O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together"

Heavenly Father, we come this morning to say Thank You! Thank you for waking us up this morning and blessing us with your warm presence. God, we are ever so grateful of the time you spent in creating and designing each and every one of us and it's with our daily praise and worship, we say thank you! Father, may you continue to shine your light upon my brothers and sisters. Bless them on this day with good health and strength. Encourage their hearts this morning. Bring peace to the minds, now, in Jesus name. Lord, we just say thank you for doing it and we bless your name that it is already done. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Brothers and Sisters, Thanksgiving is vastly approaching us. Please be mindful of those who might have lost loved ones or just may not have a place to go. Let our hearts and minds be open to those who are less fortunate for we do not know a person's situation. So on this week, ask God for his direction and how you can be a blessing to someone that is in need.

In closing, let us remember Matthew 25:45 "And he will answer, 'I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.' (NLT)....be blessed!

Pour In Pour Out

Hello All,

This post is something that I have been wanting to share with you for a while but just hadn't taken the time to  sit and type it.  So I am taking just a few minutes to get this out to you.

Have you had those days when you feel just tapped out.  You need someone to pour into you from the pitchers of love, compassion, friendship, hope and on and on.  Sure you have.  You may be feeling that way right now.  I did the other week and a friend poured into me such kindness through her words that, for a moment, I was speechless.

God knows what you need poured into you to revive you and encourage you along life's journey.  When you pray pouring your thankfulness, hurts and sins to God, He then pours into you blessings, healing and forgiveness.  Wow!  What a mighty God we serve.

The really wonderful thing is that He does not run out of the love, healing, blessings and forgiveness that He pours into you.  He doesn't get tired of you coming to Him to be refilled!

Just remember  in order to be poured into you have to pour out.  So pour out love, blessings, and forgiveness on others as God it pours out on you.

Much Love,


PS.  I kept having to do things so this post literally took most of the day instead of a few minutes.  Too Funny!

Believe In Me

Good Morning!

Last week,  I have been asking God to bless me with a word that I can share with each of you. On this morning, God placed in my spirit "Believe In Me". I'm very glad about it! Brothers and Sisters, we will all experience our time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance but whatever season you find yourself in, REJOICE anyhow!!!

Father God, I come this morning asking for your forgiveness of our sins. Lord, forgive us of any sins that were committed by omission or commission and rinse us with your love, grace and mercy. Father, we are ever so grateful for sending your son Jesus to die for us. Remind us all, Lord, how we should continue to be the light in the midst of darkness. Lord, help us not to settle or conform to this world in any shape, form or fashion. Help us to believe that we are children of God and we have the power to trample over serpents. Father God, whatever my brothers and sisters are going through today, help them to Believe In You! Lord, I bind the spirit of fear; I bind the spirit of worry and send it back to the pits of hell. Lord, I thank you for their joy. I thank you for their peace and I thank you Lord for ALREADY working it out. Saints, if you're concerned about how your bills are going to get paid, Believe In Him! If you're seeking a financial breakthrough, Believe In Him! If you are depressed or distressed, Believe In Him!!! He can WORK IT OUT for you! Now Lord, continue to bless, direct and guide us throughout this week. May each of them experience your glory in every area of their lives. Bless their families and communities. Thank you Lord! In Jesus' name, Amen.

I pray each of you will find solace in just meditating on Him and in his Word. Continue to lift up your heads, my brothers and sisters and don't let the devil steal your joy. I love you all and may God bless you, one by one.

Hands of Protection

Good Afternoon!

As I was going about my daily routine at work, I reflected on God's protection. Most of us do not realize how God's hands shield us from danger each and everyday. It's amazing how wonderful we can venture off to our various destinations and know that someone is covering us wherever we may go. The scripture II Corinthians 12:9 "And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

Grace enables you to endure hardship like a good soldier. No matter what hurdles  you face, no matter how many times you fail, GRACE allows you to stand! God's incredible grace is there to lift you up, revive the lost, heal the broken hearted, and to strengthen your weak will. It never spoils and it has no expiration date. HALLELUJAH!!!

Whatever you're facing on today, it is God's grace and His Hands of Protection that will guide you through. If I may, I would love to leave you with this prayer:

Father God, we come before you today to say Thank You for blessing us to make it through another day. Father, we love that you are ever so mindful of our thoughts and desires. Lord, I lift up each and every brother and sister that may be facing obstacles on today and call down your help to come and rescue your people. Lord, we thank you for your help. Lord, we bind each and every demonic spirit and satanic attacks that try to come against your people. Lord, you said, when the enemy comes in like a flood, you will lift up a standard. So we say Thank You! Thank you that your blood is covering us. Lord, we thank you for covering our minds! We thank you for covering our families, our friends, our household, our children and our communities. Lord we're glad that we serve a God that needs no appointments. God, we love you so much...we love you Father...we love you. Be blessed my sisters and brothers. In Jesus' name, Amen!
