Reckless Love

Let God’s Love overwhelm you, overtake you, and fill you. God loves you. Listen to this song on your way home from work or wherever you are.

No matter who you are, no matter what you do, no matter how far you go, His Love will always find you.

I thank God for you all.

Have a wonderful weekend 💖

Faith ReVamped

Prelude

God,

No matter the costs,

I will keep the faith.
I will stand in the midst of trials.
I will hold on to You.
I will trust You.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.”–Hebrews 11:11

Truth? Your faith is going to be tested. But that does not mean you break under it. Instead. Stand. Your faith will never be in vain. God will make sure you’ll never be put to shame. He will never leave you hanging….

I recall many a time when my faith in Christ took me to the end of me.
End of my journey.

My life.

But God never left me.

I know it sounds strange to the normal hearing.

But it is so true.

I could have never done the things that I have done without divine blessings.

I could have never done what I have without His Help.

I could never be who I am, tender heart and all, without The Cleansing and healing Words of God in the Bible.

I could have never been set free from addiction on my own.

I could have never been set free from depression on my own.

Yes, there are those who say we have great power lined within our souls that enable us to do such great feats.

But can you, on your own, save yourself from a car accident that should have ended your life?

Can you escape yourself when you have been strangled under the currents of depression?

Can you fight off the bullies and naysayers once and for all?

Can you stop your own wrongdoing?

Can you in your own power, by your own strength…do any of these things?

No.

You can not.

And you were never meant to.

You see, faith to the outside world seems precarious, mystical and somewhat scary.

When in reality it’s not. It’s simple. Yet its results are so complex and can be beautiful.

In you.

And around you.

So stop thinking your faithless.

You have faith. But where are you placing it?

In people? Family, friends?

Jobs?

Circumstances?

Yourself?

You disappoint yourself.

Circumstances change all the time

Jobs come…and go.

People disappoint us all the time…even if they don’t intentionally mean to.

However, having faith in God is different. Having faith in the real one—brings about results. Faith in Him is always consistently…good. No matter what the outcome, even if it is not what you expected, is glorious.

Miraculous. Not only for you. But even those around you will marvel at God’s goodness in your life.

Faith in God, the real one brings about positive, long lasting, character building results.

Results that instantly change who you are, and bring about who you were meant to be.

Faith in God helps you understand Who God is, His intimate care and love for you.

Faith is what we hope for, and evidence of things (including God. Not diminishing Him to a thing, but I pray you understand) not seen.

God is so real.

He knows you. He loves you.

I’m praying your faith fails not, and when you come back, you strengthen other believers. God bless you, love you all.

Have faith. Stand stand. Trust in Him. Remain encouraged.

Your faith is not in vain. It is not for nothing. It will not be wasted.

Keep walking with Him, standing with Him, till He comes.

Unspeakable Gift

This post uploaded a bit late…but is never late to say:

“Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.” 2 Corinthians 9:15 The gift that no words can contain the glory, beauty and mercy of it all. Yet, we speak one word and that it remains and we know, even if we can’t articulate it Who He is: JESUS. The name where there will never be enough thanks or praise. The gift that keeps on giving. JESUS. Thank you Lord for Him. Without Him there is no life. I would not be saved. I would not be rescued from the very life that would have destroyed me. Thank you God for Him! The Unspeakable, Undeniably Endlessly Beautiful Gift. God bless you all,

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Sorrow to Joy: A Song of Celebration

Psalm 126

It is a song of ascents.

(A song sung by ancient Israleties on pilgrimages back to Jerusalem during holy feasts.)

It is a song praise.

It is a song of expectation.

A song of celebration!

All this and more when it comes this beautifully written song.

But to help us remember Psalm 126 and what it means for us, today, in this very hour, and season of time..

I have written 4 Words to help you and I see, summarize, embrace, and live out the promise of God before this year ends.

Release.

God frees us.

“1 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Have you ever had a time in your life when God just came through for you? You know that moment where you have prayed and waited. Waited and prayed, for a miracle, and yet–nothing. Till one day, everything, I mean everything changed. Whether it be freedom from an addiction, business deal goes through, college acceptance letter arrives, or you reach your goals and take a step into destiny, after spending days, month and years waiting for this prayer to be answered.

When God turns it.

It’s like dream.

And though it was a long time. What amazing testimony.

Recognition

“God did this.”

2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.

God’s Power is put on display when He blesses you. Especially for those who do not believe.

We will say:

The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

I wonder if He waits purposely so that those around us will have the opportunity to share our experience so that they too will taste and see also, that God is real.

And He does miracles still.

And He is so good.

Especially for the people who trust Him.

4 Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.

This verse is different.

It starts off with a request. A prayer.

Why? Didn’t the Psalmist already say God had turned or delivered them?
We are traveling through different seasons, and yet experience similar type of obstacles.
We all will come to a situation, where we feel trapped.

Maybe even be still entangled in the sins of your past.

All bring us to the end of ourselves.

That’s okay.

We can call out to God in prayer, and He will hear us.

And deliver us from all our fears, addictions, and situations.

Whether you have to walk through the valley to get there, or wait for the Lord to come through for you.

He will.

And He promises to reward you.

Reap

Tears are seed too.

5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

When you sow your tears in the soil of God’s Word it will spring up leaves, a tree and fruit, that will produce such joy in your life. The Joy Unspeakable will come not only because He came through for you and the answer, turn around, were exceedingly abundantly more than you could ask or even think, but because now you know Him.

Or rather, have a better understanding of Who He is.

Reverse

6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

The years of pain, will be reversed to gain.

Years of bondage will be reversed for freedom.

Years of poverty, will be reversed with wealth.

Years of loss will be reversed to new life and reedemed time.

Years of weeping, will be reversed to rejoicing….

You may have gone forth, or left, leaving behind your past, or was left of it with tears.

A relationship, a dream job,

Maybe even a loved one.

Just know that He is on The Throne. He knows everything. So settle in this.

He which began a good work in you will continue till the day of Christ.

Your tears again, are seed.

He sees your pain. He has heard your cries. He will show you His deliverance and His Mighty Power–suddenly. So much so that you will be in awe and wonder at His Work in you that you will now know what to do but praise God!!

Psalm 126 will be a reminder to us all that true restoration can only come from The One Who knows the Times and Seasons and will definitely deliver you at the right time.

So that all will know that God is God. And He has done this in your life, hopefully opening their eyes to the freedom you have in Jesus.

Celebrate. Be merry! You’re free now. Rejoice and be glad over all that God has done!

God bless you today

Fly

You’ve waited long enough.
In the slumber of your dreams.
And waited quietly as your heart was broken by setting apart.
You’re free now.

23509175_1668996119833148_7744192284863583829_o
Used by God.
Set free.
As a bird flying high in the sky.
Your heart has made whole now.
Your heart has been strengthened.
Break free now. Break free.
Your heart has been illuminated. Like the Son you shine.
Your heart is free now from the chains of the past.
Your tears are heard. Are seen.
So break free now. Catapulted into your Destiny.
Your heart is free now from the chains of the past.
I strengthened your heart so now you can fly.
Now you can fly.
Now you can fly.
I’ve strengthened your heart,
So now I can fly.
Now. You. Can. Fly.
Fly. Fly.
Fly.
Fly baby, fly.”
Isaiah 40:31/Psalm 27:14/Psalm126

Have a great week flying everyone.

And don’t forget to share in the comments your view from above.

God bless you all.

Have a soaring week.

Trust in The Lord.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct (make smooth) your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Sometimes it can be hard to follow God’s instructions because your not sure where you are going.

But The Lord knows what’s best and He is the One Who Directs our steps.

This lack of knowing has occurred so many times in my life.

I will have a plan in my heart for the day, written out, cataloged. Down to the “t”. However, when I start moving forward, I keep hitting walls in my heart, that I can not override….because it is God’s way of showing me He has something better.

All I need to do is take my hands off, and allow Him to take charge.

Allow Him to speak.

Let Him control my day.

I may have plans, but the best always happens when he directs my steps.

He has the best intentions.

To bring you an expected, GOOD end.

So try to not fret, force or…whatever you do, to complicate the process.

He loves you. And He only has the best in store for you. Just how you get there may not be what you expect.

Nonetheless…

Trust Him.

For your trust in God shows Him how much you love Him.

Thank you Father.

 

I pray you let Him take the reigns f your life today.

Take courage, it will all make sense in the end.

I’m praying for you,

Amarachi

His Will…or Ours?

There is no such thing as permissive will. There is either God’s Will which is right and always perfect and our will. Our will is flawed. And hopelessly selfish at times.

But God’s Will is perfect.

God’s Ways are higher than our ways. His thoughts our Higher than our thoughts. God’s Ways, His Will– are ALWAYS best (Isaiah 55:8-9).

And His Perfect Ways and Will, will always produces the best gifts.

“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow (shadow of turning)”–James 1:17

Unfortunately, we live in a world where we decide to take on our desires first and then try to merge them into God’s plan for our lives.

It never works. And what we come to is a distorted image of the future.

God never forces. Once He sees we are not going to change our minds about something, He steps back, and give us the, free will to decide His Way or our way.

Most of the time we decide our way.

And when our way does not work out we get frustrated or offended at the very same Father who encouraged you to do things His Way.

We try to cast the blame on God or others when life does not turn out the way we expected. When in reality, it is ours to blame. We decided the way to go. We trotted down the wrong path. We didn’t feel like honoring God. It’s true. Not only for you..me too.

God, in His Mercy, will forgive us and heal our lives and situation but He can not,

Or will not–

Submit our will,

For His.

We must accept the truth that we are His Children. Living under His protective Hand.

And obeying His Will is the best thing we can do for our lives.

And we first do that by surrending our will for His. It’s not easy.

It’s okay. It’s worth it in the end.

How do I do that?

Give your

Well, you can start by saying to Him your sorry. That your making things right by repenting or turning from your sins. Two, you can humble yourself by saying that “Your Will is the best for my life and I ask that You change my thinking that it lines up with Your Own.”

And three.

“Sweet Jesus. I let go and You’re free now to do whatsoever you desire for my life. I pray my life is now in your Hands. Turn it, whatever way You desire and I shall be healed and blessed. Thank You Father. I delight myself in You, therefore, you will still grant me the desires of your heart. And because my life has now been turned for You, the fulfillment of those desires will always be good and perfect.

Only if you mean it say: I love you.

I pray God heals your heart so you can enter into His best for your life.

I love you all.

Better

He is better. Better than the money, power, fame, popularity, food, clothing. Better than our hurt, addictions or desires. Choose Jesus. He is The Only One Who Loved You enough to heal

The only way we will become better sisters, brothers, cousins, aunt’s, uncle’s, nieces, nephews, friends, and of course children, children of God too, is to accept that He is and always will be better.

There is no temporary pleasure in this life that can or will satisfy. The Love God gives me and you demonstrated through The One and Only Son is more than we can even imagine or grasp all at once. He gives you and I living water, that are parched and longing souls can be refreshed in an Oasis of joy. He continues to fill us up so that we can have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:11). He fills every empty space. Every wound. Whatever the case will be penetrated by The Love He gives and remove our greatest griefs, fears and sorrows. He heals and restores and gives light where darkness can not hide any longer.

He is The Only One that can fill you up and make you better. He can cleanse your heart, soul, mind and set you free. Yes. He is The One that can set you free. He will give you joy and everlasting peace.

And there, in His peace, you become whole again.

Jesus. is. better.

I love you all.

I pray you choose Jesus over the things that tempt you today.

I pray that you and I accept, and decide Jesus as The Only Way, because He is. I pray we continue every moment we close our eyes to go to bed, or arise for the waking of dawn….even when things are rough, rocky or messy–when we put our Hope in Jesus, things always get and will always be better.

Jacob’s Song

The story is Jacob wrestled with an angel till morning for his blessing (Genesis 32:22-32)
Sometimes it can seem like that.
A constant battle of walking in truth before Him.

Yet. Never give up. Because once we set in our minds to give God our all and let Him use our hearts for His Kingdom….He will bless us.

Jacob got His blessing.

And so will you.

So,

Never let go.

Till the Lord blesses your soul. With whatever your seeking Him for. Whether it be deliverance, promotion, or healing.

The Lord will bless your soul, if you just keep holding on to Him.

I wanted to share this with you friends.

Here it is:

Sing this song as you meditate on His goodness and love for you, and go deeper with God into all He’s calling you to be. Asking Him to help you overcome your battles and make you new again.

There are struggles that are beyond what we can see know and understand. But He knows how to make it well with your soul. He knows how to make your heart new again. So continue asking, praying and resting in His Everlasting Love. For He cares for you.

God bless you all today.

Have a good weekend.

Don’t give up on seeking God and asking for His Light and Love to come and make you whole. For He will give you peace and make you whole.

Amen.

God Is With Us

“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you”–Deuteronomy 31:6

Whatever the situation, whatever the problem; no matter the challenge or new calling, new venture, or opportunity the Lord has placed before you–do not be afraid. Just know that God is going before you and He will be with you….wherever you go. Go and poessess what He has for you. Move into The Lords best for your life. Inherit what He has called and set apart for you.

Again–

“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
And

The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you...” —Deuteronomy 31:6,8

So don’t be afraid. Only believe in Him. You can trust The Lord. He is faithful God Who will also do it.

My prayer for us today is that God shows us His Glory mightier than ever before in this season and keeps us grounded like never before.

I pray God’s peace and strength keep you as you step into all that He has for you.

I pray God’s gracious nature fills your heart with all joy and peace as you continue to walk into all that He has for you.

May The Lord bless you with His fire, strength and peace as you and I walk out together the calling He has given you and I and continue to seek His face for wisdom concerning the opportunities He has placed before us.

In His Name, I pray Amen.

God bless you all today,

I’ll continually pray for you as you do me.
