What’s In Your Cup?

It’s time to examine what’s in our cups. Not the cup that may be sitting in front of you but our spiritual cup, the one that’s constantly being depleted as you serve your family, friends, jobs, and communities. The one that may be sitting on empty if we haven’t taken the time to sit before the Father.

Remember Martha and Mary? (See Luke 10:38-42)

Let’s re-examine their story: Martha’s cup had to be on empty. Think about it? She was in front of Jesus and instead of sitting and soaking in all His glory, she cooked and cleaned. She did everything but enjoyed the presence of Jesus because her cup was filled with preconceived notions about how it is was more important to have a cleaned house than to spend time with the Lord. Had she examined her cup and enjoyed the Lord, she would have everything she needed in order to fulfill her duties of cooking and cleaning.

And let’s consider Mary-with all that had to be done to prepare for the ultimate guest, she chose to sit down and bask in His glory. Mary was preparing herself for the chores that had to be done by sitting at the feet of the Lord. She knew that in order to do what needed to be done, she had to soaking in the One who would give her the strength to do it all.

If we are all honest with ourselves, we probably identify more with Martha than Mary-but Mary was the wiser of the two. She recognized who she was in front of and she took hold of the moment to seek out the Master. Her cup was overflowing because she sought out the Living Water!

What’s in your cup? We took some time on the latest episode of “From Worn to Well” to explore what it takes to fill our cups. Check out this snippet:

You can listen to the full episode here: What’s In Your Cup?

Beloved sister, examine your cup. Is it dry to the bone? Is there a sticky residue of remnants of things that use to be in your cup? Or is it flowing with Living Water? We must take the time to fill ourselves so that we can pour out for the Father. We want our cups to be filled with life-giving, light-bearing, and sweet-tasting contents so that it is helpful to our loved ones and pleasing to the Father.

As we examine our cups, let this be our truth:

Peace and Blessings

Follow the Leader…

Trust exercises include a leader and a follower. The leader conducts a series of movements that the follower must copy. The follower may be nervous in following the leader because they may end up doing silly or embarrassing movements. Nonetheless, the exercises are done to build trust between one another.

If we are willing to follow the movements of another human being-one who is finite and flawed-why are we so apprehensive in following the lead of the Holy Spirit? By design, the Spirit of God is perfect in every way. The Holy Spirit only leads as the Father directs. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter and Counselor. To follow His lead is to be a child of God:

The Holy Spirit teaches. He guides us into all truth. He intercedes for us. He is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Do we know of a better Leader to follow?

We are guided by Pastors, teachers, bosses, friends, and family. Before we follow their lead, let’s be compelled to follow His lead. Let that small voice be the loudest voice of our lives. It’s time for us to let go of that fear that can speak so loudly.

You’ve heard that voice: End that relationship, call that person and forgive them, choose peace, love your enemy, be gentle, start that business, write that book, pray, fast, rejoice-it’s time for us to follow the Leader.

Sisters, may we trust in the Creator enough to follow the lead of His Holy Spirit-He has never failed us yet.

Peace and Blessings

The Road To Well…

The journey to well is one that is complicated, complex, and rewarding. Wellness is the promise of the King for His children. Remember the story of the woman at the well? She came to the well for natural water and left drinking on the Living Water. She came empty and left full, in so many ways. This woman found healing and purpose at the well.

Please take a few months and read her story: John 4:1-31. Her story is a beautiful example of how wellness is achieved in intimacy with Jesus Christ.

During our monthly podcast, From Worn to Well, we take some take some time to explore her story and share a glimpse into our wellness journey. Check out a snippet here:

You can listen to the full episode here: The Journey to Well…

Wellness is the Father’s desire for His daughters! We must pursue it relentlessly! We must obtain the blessing that the Father has for us!

We must repent, submit, and go and tell what the Lord has done for us! The enemy desires to see us hurt and ashamed, God forbid! We no longer have to live in shame, we no longer have to live in sin, and we no longer have to live in defeat.

As we become well, we can lead others to wellness, let’s run and speak this amazing truth: “Come and meet a man at the well who told me everything I’ve done! He could be the One we’ve been waiting for.” The Passion Translation

Let us be compelled to meet the Lord at the well and watch how we become well!

Peace and Blessings

To the Broken-hearted…

There’s a song that asks: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart? The songwriter has his own ideas but we know there is only one to way to heal a hurting heart-and that is through Jesus Christ!

Left unattended, the brokenness of a heart can produce bitterness, strife, and jealousy. But when we take all of the broken pieces and give it to the Lord-He’s bound to make us whole again!

Check out a snippet from our podcast, From Worn to Well, that breaks down this very truth:

We know that the Father is near to the heartbroken and that He is waiting for us to run to Him!

Hurting? Clinging to the Father! Need healing? Pursue the Lord! Broken? Let the King put you back together again!

The Armor of God: Helmet of Salvation…

Our minds are so vulnerable, this is why we are instructed to put on the helmet of salvation every day. If Satan affects our thinking, he wins! It’s important to know the Word of God and the promises of God to stand firm in the midst of battle.

The helmet of salvation helps us to remember that we belong to the Lord! It helps cement the fact that we are children of God. The helmet protects from the fiery darts and lies of the enemy.

When left unprotected, our mind becomes susceptible to faulty thinking. We must remember that the warfare is real and Satan’s schemes are subtle. It starts with the comparisons we make when we see someone who we think is prettier, smarter, more financially stable or a better mom, wife, etc. The Word of God warns against this form of attack:

So what does this helmet look like? It’s our salvation story, it’s our testimony about the goodness of the Lord, and it’s our attentiveness to the Word of God. It’s the power we tap into when we make our thoughts bow to the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

So we stay covered by reading the Word. We remain constant in prayer We put on the helmet of salvation when we believe the Lord over the world. We guard our ear gates and eye gates. We renew our minds daily. We remember that we are victorious through Christ Jesus. We focus on being more than conquerors. We operate from a position of thankfulness.

Keep your helmets on sisters-the battle is raging on but we have already won!

Peace and Blessings

The Lifestyle…

“…Even so, Come, Lord Jesus” Revelation 22:20. John’s declaration to the Lord is truly a lifestyle.

John’s simple words proved that he was ready to be with the Lord. As the Lord shared that He is “coming quickly”, the response wasn’t “hold up Lord, not yet.” At times, our lives shouts that same response…

John lived a life that echoed the coming of the Lord. He was sent to the island of Patmos to essentially die alone. This prove that he didn’t forsake the Lord, he did not deny the Lord’s authority, and he loved Him even to the point of death. John’s position expressed that he patiently awaited the Lord’s return. He could have deny the Lord and been saved but he took his stance and said: Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus just isn’t a call-it’s a way of life! Let’s be found working, loving, and seeking the Lord! No one is looking to be outcasted to an island to die alone but John’s willingness proved that he was ready to be with the Lord.

Are we? Are we ready to be with the Lord-resting with Him and worshipping Him for eternity? Are we ready for Jesus to come back? Do we live a life that exclaims-Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Repentance, obedience, service, sacrifice, love, forgiveness: all shout, “Come Lord Jesus!”

And while we wait, may we hold on to our blessed hope:

Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

Peace and Blessings

Word of God: Abundant

There is a Word for every situation that occurs in our lives. Downtrodden? God has a Word for you. Sick? There’s a Word for that. Lonely? There a scripture for that. The Word of God has a solution for every aspect of the human condition. The Word of God is plentiful and fully details God’s amazing plan for salvation, redemption, and restoration.

His Word is abundant. His Word is readily available for all. He provides unlimited access to His Word. The Word of God has reached many nations and there are more that need to hear His Word. Abundance is God’s promise to His children.

There are many versions of this scripture, the Amplified version uses the word “super abundantly”. Superabundance is found in the Word of God!

We all desire an abundant life, right? We must start with the Word! How can we attain the promises of God without knowing the Word of God? Abundance cannot be found in material possessions, tangible attainment, or in people.

Abundant life can only be found in the One who is life-that is God through Jesus Christ.

Peace and Blessings

Location: At Work…

When someone attempts to contact us between the hours of 9am to 5pm, most of us would say that we are at work-and for the over nighters, they are usually preparing for work.

Whether you are self-employed or work for an organization, work requires so much of our time. Work is exhausting. Work is time consuming. Work is demanding. But work is what we must do.

We can view it from the natural perspective, right? Work provides for our families. Work helps us operate in our purpose. And although it is demanding, work is fulfilling. Work is also required in the supernatural. Let’s look to the Word:

Jesus’s command is for us to work until He comes. While one can interpret this from a natural perspective, we must know that the Savior means that we are to do His business until He returns. Work is demanding, but necessary. Work is time consuming, but it’s our appropriate position. People are dying without knowing Christ because the people of God are not doing their job by planting and watering. It’s time to get to work!

As a blood washed, born again believer-the charge has been given: Occupy until Jesus returns. We cannot afford to retire from ministry, it’s our service! Preaching the Word of God through Jesus Christ is our lifelong service.

We preach when we give of ourselves. We preach when we encourage someone with the Word of God. We minister by caring for our families. We work as we testify about the goodness of Christ. We preach by living out the Word of God. We work by exuding joy, choosing patience, and loving our enemies. We are working when we are fasting and praying. We are working when we are declaring and decreeing the promises of God.

We should always be at work, not at our secular place of employment but doing our Father’s business. Whether it’s 5pm or 5am, when someone is looking for us, we must be at work.

Peace and Blessings
