A Happy Ending…

Trouble, trials, and turbulence are our portion while here on Earth. Between the violence, the economic woes, and moral issues-troubles have no problem finding us. No matter how much we pray and plead, sorrow is inevitable. That is not the end result, however, as children of the Lord, we have a promise that awaits us at the end of the turbulent road. Christ tells us so, let’s look to the Lord:

The end is that you will overcome because Christ overcame it all! Trouble may be the portion but victory is the promise! Friends, this world is just full of sorrowful stories. Turn on the news, open up the internet-you will find all the troubles and ills of the world there.

But open up your Bible! There you will find the happy ending you dream of-Jesus Christ overcame the world’s ills. The end is that you will overcome too! There is a home in Heaven awaiting those who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Our Savior achievements is our promise! Our happy ending isn’t found in retiring from a job in 30 years, it isn’t found in marrying the love of our life or becoming debt-free, our joy is in Christ alone. Christ is more than our happy ending-He is our joy-filled ending!

Sisters, we cannot let Disney or the latest romantic comedy shape our desired happy endings. There are cute and entertaining but they are not endgame. Victory is better than any movie that Disney can make! The approval of the Father is better than any story we will read! Sisters, we will cry and we will grieve in the world but because of Christ-we will win! Victorious living is our promise!

Accept Christ, and you too, can live happily ever after…

Peace and Blessings

Growing Through…

Are you going through? Or are you growing through? The thing about going through is that the destination is undetermined. You don’t know where you will end up. Growing through, however, leads to a positive outcome. Growth frequently means progress. Growing through results in enlightenment and revelation. Growing through results in a better you.

Growing through leads to a life built on Christ. Growing through leads to you looking like Christ, thinking like Christ, and speaking like Christ. Growing through makes you better, more refined, and wiser.

The issues of life will continue. In this world, we will have trouble-the Lord says so! But know that you are an overcomer! Know that you are more than a conqueror. Sister, you are not going through-wandering aimlessly or without direction, you are GROWING through! There might be tears, frustration, and pain but you are going to be better, stronger, and more determined when this is over. You are growing, cementing your roots in Christ!

So the next time someone asks you what’s going on, how’s everything going, or when you are dealing with a rough circumstance-tell them you are growing through!

Peace and Blessings

Outpouring…

Whatever you are holding on to, whatever burdens you, pour it out to the Father. He cares for you. He is your place of safety and refuge. It’s time to give it all up to Him-the worries and the wonders. He wants it all today, sister.

Pour it out today, it’s time to stop holding it all in. Trust Him with the impossible. Trust Him with the improbable. Trust Him with the deep secrets and the buried pain. Trust Him with the process.

He is your shelter and shield. He is your strength and your safe haven.

Selah.

Peace and Blessings

All of Me…

Sisters, let’s be intentional about giving all of ourselves-the beautiful and the messy parts-to the Lord. This can be a challenging task. Women are taught to be presentable at all times. Women are taught that no one will want them if they are too much: too vulnerable, too emotional, too needy. Now here comes the One who says He loves all of us-our endless tears, the snort that comes with a hearty laugh, and the frustrations that so easily beset us. That can be hard to believe but it is absolutely the truth:

The Lord loves all of you-the parts you were told were unlovable, the Lord can handle it. The “hot mess” that you frequently call yourself is considered the apple of His eye. So if the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings is so in love with you, why do you hold back parts of yourself from Him? Declare today that it shall be no more!

Let us pray with you: Lord, may the beautiful woman of God whom encounters this post declare today that she will surrender all of herself to you. You are the Creator of her very life. You are the author and finisher of her faith. May she reject the lies of the enemy and humbly bow before you, her King, who loves every part of her messy, beautiful, simple, and complex life. In Christ name, Amen.

Lifetime Guarantee…

Some products and associations offer a lifetime guarantee of support and assistance. However, those documents often come with with fine print and exceptions. Companies that promise lifetime guarantees fall every day. The assurances that the world offers are temporary, no matter what the verbiage of a contract may say.

This is one of the many reasons why we have to lean on Christ alone. Being a child of God, also offers a lifetime guarantee:

Friends, we know you’ve encountered this Word many times before, but read it slowly, savor that truth! Don’t just gloss over this lifetime guarantee from the Father. It’s so easy to take it for granted. It’s so easy to fall for the schemes of the enemy.

Sisters, there is no fine print in the Word of God! He will never fail! We will fall, we will stumble, and we will mess up-several times! There is no timeline on the Father’s love. His mercies are new each and every morning. His grace is for a lifetime. His love is guaranteed to His children!

Christ paid for this warranty with His life, this guarantee of His protection and provision, His love and care, and His grace and His promises extends for a lifetime-for all of eternity.

In Christ, there is truly a lifetime guarantee.

Peace and Blessings

The Sound…

Mothers, when you are in a room full of children, are you able to recognize the sound of your child’s voice?

Children, are you able to recognize the sound of your parent’s voice in a room full of adults?

Wives, imagine you are in Walmart, are you able to recognize the sound of your husband’s voice as you are on one aisle and he’s on another?

As we build relationships with our families, we recognize their voice-we hear when our names are called, we recognize their laugh, and may even be able to recognize their cry-if they are hurt or are in pain.

And just as we attune our ears to our loved ones, the Father has attuned His ear to us. The Father knows when we are hurting, He knows we were are in pain, and He knows when we are in need. The Lord knows when we are speaking from our heart and when we are speaking from the flesh:

Sister, the Father has heard the sound of your voice and He is coming! Matter of fact, He is already here. The Father knows that you’ve been crying, He knows you’ve been hurting. We are here to tell you that your prayers will be answered!

This is not prosperity gospel or about naming and claiming it, this is about knowing that the Father knows the sound of His child’s voice! This is about the Father knowing that your heart is crying out. This about getting more of our good, good Father and training ourselves to hear our faithful Father’s voice!

If you are wondering if the Lord is speaking, go to His Word. The more you soak yourself in the Word of God, the greater confidence you will gain in learning the Father’s voice. His voice is gentle, His word produces life, and His tone will draw you to Him.

Do you recognize the sound you are hearing? It may be the Father calling!

Peace and Blessings

Your Way or Yahweh?

Have you ever tried to get to a destination off of memory? You rely on landmarks, you jog your memory, and you end up lost. Eventually, you find yourself turning on Google Maps and then you get re-routed and back on track.

While this scenario is applicable for traveling to a physical destination, this is also true for a spiritual destination. When trying to figure out the best way to go, we will talk to our best friend, seek out a self-help book, and even talk to our Mama. And while our friends and family may have the best intentions, they should not be our first resource. We have to surrender the way we think we should go, we should give up trying to go our way and try Yahweh.

Jesus, Jehovah, Yahweh, Immanuel-No matter what name we call Him-He is the way, the truth, and the life! We have to surrender our way to Him! We must give up the path we think we know for the path He created for us. His way will lead us in the way everlasting. His way will lead us right to Him! The Lord our God has not left us alone to figure this road called life out, His Word is our guide. The Holy Spirit has been sent to lead us.

As we consider our way or Yahweh, let’s look to the Word for direction:

Peace and Blessings

Saturday Prayer Session!

Good Day Ladies!

Usually every 2nd and 4th Saturday, Sisters Helping Sisters leads a prayer session through a conference line. Today was different and while we could not do it the traditional way, the Lord laid encouraging words and prayer on my heart for my sisters!

The promises of God will always and forever stand the test of time. His promises will always manifest and His Word is living and active!

Be encouraged!

Peace and Blessings

Massage Therapy…

Massages are considered to be therapeutic. They can help one become more flexible, help one relax, and can be a tool to alleviate pain and discomfort. With the right touch and pressure, a stuffy nose can be resolved, a stiff shoulder can move without pain, and a fussy baby can be sent to a peaceful sleep.

Christians need massage therapy. Not in the context of the world’s perception of massages but we need our hearts to be massage. Hearts become heartened for a number of reasons: trauma, failed relationships, toxic friendships, and the list goes on. We are warned about guarding our hearts because from them flow the wellspring of life. How can anything flow from a hardened place? We need some massage therapy and who better than to go to the Kings of King for His loving touch?

Oh how we need the Father to massage our tender hearts with His love and care?! A stony heart cannot be penetrated with the power of God’s Word. A heart of stone cannot produce living water. A heart of stone must be submitted to God for a heart of flesh.

The Lord wants us to love Him endlessly. He wants us to care for others tremendously. And we cannot do that without some massage therapy from the Father. Our softened hearts leads us to being submissive. A softened heart is led to repentance. A heart of flesh facilitates true worship.

Friend, you may have been harden by the ills of this world. You may have been hurt and abused. You may have experienced trauma. Turn to the Father for massage therapy!

Peace and Blessings
