The Push




 "...but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." ~ Isaiah 40:31


We all desire to soar high for the LORD but there is always this fear of falling that keeps us from taking the plunge into our purpose.

Growth Requires You Planting THE SEED

Relationships are difficult to cultivate these days especially in an era where we expect to gain something without putting in the effort. In other words we expect to receive what we ourselves are not willing to give.

Many find it difficult to extend love because they don't know how or they fear to take the risk again.  Inside they deeply desire to do so. Therefore they pray that God fills their heart with love so they can love those around them like He does. Still in their asking and receiving, they find themselves still unable to do so.

The other day in prayer I asked the LORD "why is it so hard to love?" I said "You are LOVE because Your word says that you are. (1 John 4:8)  Therefore LOVE resides in me.  So why do I find it difficult to love like You do?

The LORD answered "because it requires for you to plant the seed that is in you."

Living on the Outside: Dying in the Inside

Today you have many women who are so heavily burdened hiding behind smiles.  Yes, they seem to have it all together on the outside but inside they are dying.  They live each day creating false hopes in order to survive.  They tired themselves out with work, exercising,  activities, shopping and ministry - just to keep them from thinking, feeling and being alone with themselves.

There is this emptiness they cannot fill.  Tears saturate their pillows night after night as they cry out "I can't do this anymore!"  Their strength is spent and cannot lift their eyes up to Jesus because their burdens are so heavy.





For instance, there was a woman who was sitting in the synagogue (church) one Sabbath day.   She was so overcome with her burdens that she could not lift herself up to see that she was in the presence of the ONE who is able to heal her and make her whole.

In Luke 13:10-11 it reads "Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.  And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. "

Candles - Light A Candle

Candles - Light A Candle

In memory of those who have lost their lives in Oklahoma.  Some of them were children.....Say a prayer as you light one of the candles on behalf of those they left behind.  There are mothers, father's, daughters, sons, nieces, cousins, nephews, grandsons, granddaughters, aunts, uncles, friends, co-workers, schoolmates that will be missed....Pray that Holy Spirit will come and comfort them and shower them with God's love and peace....

God bless....

Mother: A Child's Love Never Fails....

Mother's did not come with an instruction manual, yet they have an inner instinct.  I remember as a child I embraced my dolls and care for them gently.  I knew how to hold them; change their diapers, bathe and dress them. I spoke to them lovingly and gave them so much love.  I didn't know how to be a mom at that age, but the instincts were there.

At 14 yrs of age I didn't know how to be a mom either but I did the best I knew how.

Restoration of the Tabernacle of David

I thank God for such an amazing weekend! Wow! Wow! Wow! That's all I can say....

I had the honor and privilege of meeting Jeanette Strauss of Glorious Creations in a conference held by Keys of David House of Prayer (Fort Meyers, Fl) on Friday and Saturday!  I was surrounded by God's beautiful daughters and sons whose desire is to worship and praise Him through the ministry of dance and flags.  I was so honored to meet and speak with a few of the women and they are absolutely wonderful! 

Jeanette is such an amazing and anointed woman of God.  She taught from her books: From God's Hands to Your Land-Blessings; From Court Room of Heaven to the Throne Room of Grace; and Heavenly Impact.  I so highly recommend these books!  You can get them by clicking here or at Amazon.

Outstanding Achievement Comes with a Cost!



Today my husband and I attended our daughter's award ceremony this morning at her school.  As we sat down waiting for it to commence, I look around the room to see other parents in anticipation. 
In the auditorium there was a wall displaying all the 6th graders art projects.  It was amazing to see the talent these 11-13 year olds possessed!  Proud parents pointed to their children's pieces and boasting as we parents know how to do :)
The principal began to announce the "outstanding achievement" awards.  It was incredible to hear their accomplishments in various subjects.

Not In Words - In Representation




Not In Words BUT In Representation!


I want to encourage you in this new season many of you are entering into.

You have traveled through the wilderness; refined through the fire and have ridden the waves of the storms.  You have gone through the process and now has come the time for your revelation! (Romans 8:19)

The LORD has found you to be obedient – therefore you are NOW being shifted- transitioning from hiddenness to exhibition in that which God has appointed you for in such a time like this.

Choose: PRIDE OR BREAKTHROUGH?





PRIDE OR BREAKTHROUGH? 

If you were to take a balance scale and put “pride” on the left hand side and “breakthrough” on your right hand side, which one will sit higher and which one will lean lower?
Now the deciding factor to that question is determined by how you answer the following:

HOW DESPERATE ARE YOU?

Have you yet come to the point of being sick and tired of “being sick and tired”? If so, are you willing to let go of what is holding you back from experiencing total freedom?
