The Bible says with age comes wisdom and understanding. (Job 12:12) Wisdom is to be shared. I share with you what I have learned about the Sun and THE SON. (Jesus Christ) When the sun is shining, embrace it and enjoy its warmth. And when the storms come, remember that the sun will return and sometimes it even returns with a rainbow! When we experience the storms of life (and we will), instead of focusing on the storm, we must hold on and wait for THE SON. I was taught in school that even when it is storming, the sun does not go anywhere, any more than you or I don’t vanish when we walk behind a building or a large tree that blocks us from view. When it rains the rain comes from clouds, and these clouds are usually thick and you can’t see through them, like that building or tree that blocks us from sight. The sun is still there, it is just being blocked from our view by the rain clouds. The same applies to THE SON. Just because we can’t see Him doesn’t mean He is not there.

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:20)

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19)

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14)

Jesus promise is to be with His followers in Spirit and in Truth every minute of every day, until the very end of life and into eternal life beyond. He did not say only when the sun was out but in the storms as well. Even when we don’t feel or see Him, He is there. Whenever we are feeling confused, our hearts will grow weary, and THE SON may seem to disappear. A life storm, be it mentally, physically, financially, or spiritually (warfare) will have you thinking you are alone. But we are not alone. The storm that is surrounding us may keep us from feeling the presence of THE SON, but He sees us, and He is surrounding us in the storm. The devil wants us to believe we are alone. He wants us to doubt and question God. The truth is that THE SON will never leave or forsake us. The truth is Jesus is always working on our behalf even in the mist of the storms. We must keep our mind on the truth, and not the enemies lies! God’s purposes for us are so much infinitely bigger than the confusion, stress, and fear we experience in a storm.

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever, the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17)

“Be sober minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Sometimes Jesus will stop the storm, and then sometimes He will calm us through the storm. That. Is. His. call. We certainly would prefer if He just removed the storm, but then we may miss the tools we need for our purpose ahead. Jesus knows there are valuable lessons to be learned in a storm. The storms of life teach us patience, perseverance, humility, and most importantly they help us to grow spiritually. The storms of life will draw us closer to our Savior. Whatever is happening, God is good! And no storm of any kind will stop His great plan to replace darkness with light. Nothing will stop or block His love and care for us. Not war, violence, plagues, pandemics, demons, darkness, hurricanes, politics, or even death. All of these things? Their days are numbered. But THE SON remains!  

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” (1 Peter 4:12-13)

“The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” (Lamentations 3:25)

“then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you.” (Deuteronomy 30:3)

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

Maybe your finances are tight. Maybe you or someone you love is extremely ill. This world is full of darkness and you feel fear rising in your heart and are tempted towards anxiety and despair, ready to give up. Don’t panic! Look through the storm for THE SON and allow Him to remind you of what to do in this dark season; keep the faith, keep praising, and keep giving glory to God! And just like nature’s storms, when it passes, there is sometimes a rainbow in the form of restoration, healing, and peace. Learn the lesson which the sun and THE SON teaches us, they never disappear just because we don’t see or feel them! Love and blessings…


I am sure you have heard people talking to themselves, I am one of those people. Not only have I learned to talk to myself and encourage myself, I have learned to talk to any obstacle the enemy puts in my way! So call me crazy if you want, I call it crazy faith. In Samuel 30, David was greatly distressed, but he encouraged himself in the Lord. And in Mark 11:23, Jesus instructs us to speak to our mountains, “For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be thrown into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.” Notice Jesus instructs us to “say” not think. Say means to utter aloud, to express in words. Scripture also tells us that, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21). So what we speak is powerful, good or bad. It is important in our Christ walk that we understand Scripture wasn’t just “inspired’ by God, but “breathed” by God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) All of Scripture can be trusted if we approach God’s Word with wisdom and humility.

The Lord wants us to encourage ourselves so we can encourage others. He wants us to use our tongue which is powerful to rebuke the enemy. Why is it that we are quick to rebuke people if they say something we don’t agree with but when it comes to using our authority and speaking aloud to the enemy, we are hesitant? Jesus did just that in Matthew 16:23 and Mark 8:33. He commanded “Get behind me, Satan” We know Peter was one of Jesus’s most devoted disciples but Jesus knew even if Peter didn’t, that he was speaking for satan. Sometimes the enemy will try and use our family or friends, and we must not be afraid to speak get thee behind me satan and get away from my loved one! The Bible says resist the devil and he will flee. (James 4:7) Jesus spoke to things! He spoke to a storm. He spoke to a fig tree. “When He saw a fig tree by the road, He went to it but found nothing on it except leaves. He said to it, “Let no fruit ever grow on you again.” (Mark 11: 12,14,21) The fig tree responded to what He said. You may say, but that was Jesus, the Son of God. While He walked this earth, Jesus was fully human and fully God. He was anointed with the Holy Spirit and power, but Jesus took on human flesh to provide salvation to those under the law. Now He has all Power in heaven and on earth! When Christ left this earth, He left us with this promise in Luke 10:19, “Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing by any means shall hurt you.” He left us with power and the Holy Spirit which lives within us. He tells us in John 14:12 that we are called to greater works. We can be confident that through the Holy Spirit, we have the power to rebuke the devil’s attempts to harm us.

Most Believers get that we should not speak negative, critical, or judgmental. We get that we need to pray. But some don’t get that we also need to speak to our mountains in the name of Jesus, and because of our faith, expect them to disappear. We may look and feel foolish. The world may think we are crazy, but the world does not know the power of Jesus! There is power in our words. We pray and pray about our mountains. That’s a good thing. We should pray, but there comes a time when we must also speak to it. Don’t stop praying. Go one more level and speak to your mountain. When we are faced with a mountain-sized problem, we get scared and run to tell God all about it. That’s good, no better one to run to. But the truth is, He already knows about our problems. He’s already provided everything we need to overcome them. (Corinthians 10:13) So praise the Lord for carrying all of our infirmities on the cross and then command the mountain to bow to Jesus! (Titus 2:15)  

The enemy will attempt to use mountains to make us lose hope and lose faith. He will attempt to use mountains to block our vision of our future. He wants us to get upset with people and get upset with God. If he can do this, then he has won. The Bible says no weapon formed will prosper, it does not say that they would not form. (Isaiah 54:17) So whatever lies the enemy attempts has a name. Cancer, depression, financial burdens, it doesn’t matter what the mountain is, speak to it and rebuke it in the name of Jesus. There is a miracle in your mouth! There is power in your words! There is power in the name of Jesus! Love and Blessings….  



Is this world on a downward spiral or is it that our exposure to negativity has been magnified by our access to the Internet, Social Media, and the News? The exposure to the cruelty of this world and the “anything goes” mentality has some questioning if we are approaching the end of times. This is what the Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 3:1-3, “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,”

The Bible does not tell us the time of Jesus’s return, but as Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus gives us some important clues for discerning the approach of the end times in Matthew 24:4-8, Jesus answered:

“Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars but see to it that yoare not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Mark 13:32)

The Bible speaks of an increase in false messiahs, an increase in warfare, and increases in famines, plagues, and natural disasters as signs of the end of times. The Bible is giving us a warning, but Jesus clearly states these events are only the beginning and the end is yet to come.

There is no doubt that the world is changing, and dark times are definitely here. Everything is changing and nothing is certain anymore except God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as revealed in the Bible to us who have hearts that are willing to believe the Truth. Our natural realm is being greatly shaken right in front of our eyes, and as Believers we are also in a constant spiritual war. Spiritual warfare is as real as natural warfare. I would say it is even more challenging because we fight against what we cannot see with our natural vision. We must be in tune with Christ so He can open our spiritual eyes. As Christians, we have tremendous power in the spirit realm. The problem is that many of us forget we are in a war and fail to use our weapons. Ephesians 6:11-13 reads,  

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” 

Our question should not be if this is the end time, we should be more concerned whether we are ready if it is. Believers should not be changing with the world, we should be standing steadfast in our faith. Believers should not be compromising to fit in when God has set us apart. Believers should not be living in fear but should be confident that God is still in control despite what it looks like? God has given us enough information that we can be prepared, and that is what we are called to be as our hearts cry out, “Come, Lord Jesus” Love and Blessings…

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2)

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10)

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)

“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;” (Acts 17:24)

“He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. (Revelations 22:20)


It seems every day it’s a struggle to maneuver through the darkness of this world. I say that as a person who knows Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. So I can’t imagine how one does it without Jesus at the center of their life. How I get through is to shine God’s light on it. His light is brighter than the darkness! When the darkness of this world tries to envelope me, His Word gives me light. When I am exhausted, His light renews my strength. When nothing makes sense, His light gives me understanding. If I feel lonely, His light lets me know I am not alone. Whatever you are searching for, God’s light will help You find it.

“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5)

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)”  

As believers we can experience God’s light because we have the Holy Spirit living within us. We have the power through Christ to overcome darkness by shining our light on it. In the physical you can’t see in the dark, and in the spiritual you can’t see in the dark either. However when we shine God’s light on the situation or person, God will open our spiritual eyes and we get discernment. It doesn’t matter how bad the situation is, what report we receive from the doctor, how bad our finances are, whatever the struggle is, we should shine our light on it. The light overpowers darkness and enables us to see God at work. The light helps us to read and understand His Word. The Bible tells us that darkness cannot overcome the light. When we shine out light on it, the darkness has to go! But what if the darkness is internal? The darkness inside you and me contributes to the troubles of this world. The Bible tells us that the heart is deceitful. (Jeremiah 17:9) It is easier to see the darkness around us instead of inside us. The light of Christ exposes our darkness, but first we have to admit our inner darkness. Then we must make a conscious effort to walk in the light daily. Walking in the light isn’t just being good, it’s bringing our darkness to Jesus over and over, and to one another, to experience his cleansing, purifying light.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (Psalm 119:105)

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7)

Let me be clear, the light within us is different from the world’s light shining on us. Author Christine Caine wrote,

“If the light that is ON you is brighter than the light that is IN you, the light that is ON you will destroy you.”

Our main focus should not be on how bright the world’s light shines on us, but how bright the light shines within us for others to see. We should be walking in the light. That is what shows our spiritual maturity and where we are in Christ. You can see the difference in believers who consistently walk in the light and let their light shine on others. The world’s light may not be shining ON them but you can see God’s light shining all THROUGH them. They may be serving behind the scenes, visiting someone in the hospital, or offering their time by just being with a friend in need. Their contribution to building up believers and God’s kingdom may not be flashy, but their character is deep because they have chosen to deny their fleshly darkness and walk in the light. Walking in the light requires obedience to our Lord Jesus. Walking in the light involves the difficult task of dying to self every day. But be encouraged because the light is not only winning, but it has already won. Whenever darkness tries to surround you or enter you, shine your light on it! Love and Blessings…

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” (Galatians 5: 16-18)

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)


Someone asked how I face my challenges without giving up. Giving up is not an option when you believe God’s promises. Faith begins with believing God’s promise that He will work everything for our good. W. Phillip Keller wrote, “I know of nothing which so stimulates my faith in my heavenly Father as to look back and reflect on His faithfulness to me in every crisis and every chilling circumstance of life.”  That part! I believe all of God’s promises are Yes and Amen.

“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so, through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) NIV

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28) NIV

If you feel you are ready to give up because your faith has wavered. If your belief in God’s promises has come to a slow burn, maybe what will reignite your passion is a decision to believe what God said is true for you and about you. We can read and study the Scriptures inside and out, however if we don’t believe, we are lost. Believing God’s Word is what sets us free and gives us eternal life. To have faith we must first let go of the unbelief.  

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:23-24) NKJ

Let me be clear, I don’t rejoice because I go through, I rejoice because of Who gets me through. I rejoice because I believe no matter what it feels or looks like, God is faithful. Jesus tells us to anticipate trials and tribulations in this world (John 16:33), However, He also makes these promises; He will be with us to the end (Matthew 28:10), He will supply all of our needs (Philippians 4:19), we are healed by His stripes (1 Peter 2:24), He promises that He will fight for us, and we do not have to be afraid (2 Chronicles 20:17). As believers we know that Jesus is our Savior. (Acts 4:12) In these challenging times, it is crucial that we believe what Jesus, our Savior has promised us.  “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)

“He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” (John 3:36)

God’s promises may not happen when we think they should, but we must remember that His timing is perfect. God is faithful to fulfill all His promises. This is where belief comes in, against all odds, against circumstances or situations, and especially against time, we must let go of unbelief and take hold of the power of belief to achieve the promises of God. Believing God’s promises is having a firm and unshakable conviction that His promises are true. We have great power when we believe that God is Who He says He is, and that we are who God says we are. When we believe the promises of God, the power of God, and the provisions of God, we are set free in this life and for eternity! Love and Blessings…



If you are reading this, you made it through the first week of 2023. That is something to be grateful for. Praise God! If you watched the news this past week, there were deadly shootings, road rage, missing children, suicides, etc. All of this in the first week of 2023! It can be depressing to say the least. However, I want to encourage you to not get weak from this first week. Stay focused! Stay strong! If we keep our gaze on God and His Word, the troubles of this world cannot distract us from God’s purpose for our life. God has brought us through 2022 because He has a purpose for us in 2023. Psalms 33:11 tells us; “But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.”  

In spite of all that is going on around us, we do not have to be afraid. The Lord is with us at all times. He already knows what is going on in this fallen world, none of it has caught Him by surprise. This includes our personal trials and tribulations, family problems, health issues, and financial problems. God is faithful and He will turn it all around for our good if we seek and trust Him. He is our light in these times of darkness. God’s power is limitless, and He promised that He would work all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to His purpose. We know all of God’s promises are Yes and Amen!

“The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)  

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)  

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)  

“In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.” (Psalm 56:11)  

“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so, through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) 

How do we begin to navigate through this dark world and the attacks of the enemy? We certainly cannot do it in our own strength. The goal of the Christian life is to become more like Christ, who always took time to pray. Prayer should be our first reaction to any situation life throws our way. We should strive to make prayer a necessary part of our daily lives, like breathing. Father God wants us to communicate with Him through prayer. Praying daily will bring peace in your life. It will help you to understand more about God’s plan for you and also bring blessings to you, your family, and those you pray for. We must intentionally seek God and spend time in His presence daily.

 “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

I encourage you to pray at all times without ceasing. Prayer is how we communicate with God. And in these trying times, we need to stay in tune with Him daily. Prayer is the best place to reveal our true feelings, even fear. Unlike humans, God is not fooled by our attempts to disguise our true feelings, to put on a false smile, or to cover our suffering and heartache. We can bring Him our hopes, fears, doubts, and even our anger. Jesus already knows us better than we know ourselves. In our Father we will find comfort and a peace beyond understanding. Prayer is our safeguard against acting on our feelings. When we hear about senseless killings, and violence, especially if it hits close to home, our emotions kick in and we may want to react but if we pray and wait until our feelings are in line with God’s will, He will strengthen and comfort us. We can be confident that no matter the hurt that needs healing or the chaos that needs calming, Jesus can and will fix it!  

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” (Ephesians 3:20)

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)  

“do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” (Philippians 4:6)

“For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7)

“If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.” (1 John 3:20)

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

This year I pray that we stay focused on God and His promises, I pray that we walk by faith instead of sight, and I pray that we stay connected to God daily who will bring the infinite hope of Jesus! Love and Blessings…🙏🙏🙏


Going into 2023 I pray we are intentional about our goals and our life purpose. Once we know our purpose, our life journey can be joyful and fulfilling. How we know our purpose is by spending time with our creator. I pray this coming year we are more intentional about spending time with Jesus. The more time we spend in His presence, the more we are energized by His anointing and equipped by His grace. No matter where we are or what we are going through, He is with us. Scripture says He is near to all who call His name. His presence is only a prayer away. It is up to us to stop the hustle and flow and give Him our undivided attention. We must take out time everyday to spend time with the one who gives us life. Five minutes or five hours, that’s between you and God. This coming year, make your relationship with Jesus your number one priority and be empowered by Him each and everyday! Here’s to a blessed and prosperous New Year! Love and blessings…

“The Sovereign Lord has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will.” (Isaiah 50:14)

“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:15-16)

“Call  to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)


I remember as a child I would ask my mama why when she told me to do something. She would often answer with because I said so. I did not like that answer! I would not be honest if I said I never cried out to God, why Lord why? Sometimes the answer is because He is God and He said so! Is that supposed to make you feel better when you have lost a loved one, when you are struggling, or in pain? The answer is yes it should. Why should it you ask? Because what I have learned is the why doesn’t matter, it is the Who. We know the God Who knows everything, the God Who loved us enough to sacrifice His only son, the God Who has plans to work everything out for our good, this is the God Who we can trust and be obedient even when we don’t know the why.

“For  I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11) ESV

“For  God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) KJV

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28) KJV

Scripture tells us there are some things we will never know because His ways are higher than our ways. Sometimes God will reveal things to us but the scripture tells us that some things He keeps sealed until the end of time. God knows what we can or cannot handle. The Lord uses all things to accomplish His purpose for our lives. HE will even use evil things that come from the evil one and turn them around for our good. Understanding that we may not get an answer does not make the hurt or the pain any less. And of course understanding does not make us not miss our love ones. But God Who is always wise, always good, always trustworthy, and is always with us will give us peace through it all.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9) NIV

“And  when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.” (Revelations 10:4) KJV

“The Lord works out everything to its proper end even the wicked for a day of disaster.” (Proverbs 16:4) NIV

“You  intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” (Genesis 50:20) NIV

“The  Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) NIV

“When  you pass through the waters,
I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” (Isaiah 43:2) NIV

Even though we might not get an answer or the answer we want, we can always go to God with our questions. He does not get angry when we have questions, however there is a blessing when you choose blind faith. It leads to full surrender and peace. Love and Blessings…



“And I knew that any words and actions in this moment, like all moments, spoke powerfully of the God within me”____Unknown Author

Some people will purposely try to snatch you out of character. They will allow the enemy to use them to come for you. Sometimes the best response is no response. We have to be careful how we respond to people or situations. I will admit this is not always easy. Some people believe that because you are a follower of Christ, you are weak. This is not true, it actually makes you strong. Strong enough to say not today Satan! You will not steal my joy. Not ever!

“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; ” (James 1:19) ESV

“Be  sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8) ESV

Do not let the enemy deprive you of your joy, peace of mind, confidence, hope or spirit. Do not let satan distract you by making you waste your time and energy on things that really don’t matter in the grand scheme of things! Stay focused and keep pressing on. Continually fix your eyes on God who will give you wisdom to handle any situation. Seek God’s word! Refresh and refill your mind and spirit with the truth!

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2) BSB

“let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.” (Ephesians 4:23) NLT”But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23) NIV

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23) NIV”

“Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” (Psalm 141:3) NIV

“In  the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) ESV

Emmanuel, God is with us, not sometimes but at all times. He is our strength for today and our hope for tomorrow. And with that promise, God is asking us to proclaim His goodness to the world. Everyday we must strive to be Christlike, imitating His character. We want others to be drawn to the Good News of the Gospel because they see the light of God in us. Refuse to allow anyone to put out your light or even dim it, keep shining! Love and Blessings…


I am no longer ashamed to admit that sometimes I get weak. I know God’s power is displayed through our weaknesses. There are times I am able to stand up in pain and weakness and still do what I have to do, not because I am strong, but because it is God who strengthens me, especially to do what He has […]
