She’s determined to keep her faith
She’s focused on one true God
She doesn’t walk by sight but by faith
She is a seed
Planted by God
Watered by His Word
Growing by the power that is within her
Her promotion doesn’t come from the hand of man
It comes from the throne of God
Favor is her portion
VICTORY is her guaranteed unlimited portion

Letting go

1B7F965B-8E72-430E-A63C-47EEA77C19F4

“To let go doesn’t mean to stop caring;
It means I can’t do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off…
It’s the realization that I can’t control another…
To let go is not to enable,
but to allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness,
which means the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try and change or blame another,
I can only change myself.
To let go is not to care for, but to care about.
To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
but to allow others to affect their own outcomes.
To let go is not to be protective,
It is to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny, but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold, or argue,
but to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment.
To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone,
but to try to become what I dream I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.
To let go is to fear less and love more.”

If God is in it, no amount of lack of support can stop it

54ED13D7-C504-4E20-AB82-54F08017A5C9

Their support is minimum, their praise is minimum and their acknowledgement of you is minimum. Sometimes it takes a little while for you to recognize that those that ‘claim’ to have your corner are in actual fact at the side walk hoping for your downfall. Of course, they do ‘claim’ to want to see you do good but they hope you don’t become better than them. And that is coming from the spirit behind the person which is envy and jealous and being used by the devil to carry on  his conniving ways.
(Genesis 37:12-28) Joseph was one of the twelve sons of Jacob and he was his favorite because he was the son of his old age and the first child by his beloved wife, Rachel.

His brothers hated him and never spoke a kind word to him. Jacob made his son Joseph a richly ornamented robe. In that time, it wasn’t uncommon to have a robe or clock. Robes were used not only for warmth but also to bundle up belongings for trips, to wrap babies, to sit on or even serve as security for a loan. The robe became the prove that Jacob’s favoritism toward Joseph.
One day Joseph had a vision and when he told his brothers, they hated him even more. They couldn’t imagine Joseph’s vision coming to pass, the possibility of him being their ruler didn’t sit well with them. They became jealous that they end up doing the unspeakable, they went ahead and sold him into slavery.
Jealous is a sin, it is tyrannical and can lead to serious dangers. It is a dangerous sword that can harm your relationships, it can even kill. Jealousy drove the brother to do evil act against their own brother. Sometimes you don’t have to share your vision with just anybody. Not everyone wants to celebrate with you even if those who are in your inner circle, be careful. The brothers never wanted to be part of his success, they never wanted to support or encourage Joseph. No matter how unfair it sounds the good news is; that kind of behavior of people towards you, develops a strong character in you and gets you deep in wisdom. Don’t allow lack of support from some people to stop you to pursue what God placed in you. If God is in it, nobody can stop it. Be encouraged!

Psalm 27:1 “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, in this I will be confident.” 

2 Corinthians 9:8-11 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, have an abundance for every good work.

 

 

Strength and courage

0C3AE635-3B74-4E43-A84B-58D96341A1D1It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubts.
It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.
It takes strength to share a friend’s pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.
It takes strength to hide your own pain,
It takes courage to show it and deal with it.
It takes strength to stand guard,
It takes courage to let down your guard.
It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.
It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.
It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on a friend.
It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.
It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

Forgive yourself

F714A4BF-8119-4471-82B0-974929E6059C

No matter how many mistakes you have made, there are in the past. God has cleaned and made you new. Let those who live in your past and keep reminding you all the wrongs you have done not to affect your new you and your faith. God honors our faith not our past. We all make mistakes at one point in our lives but it shouldn’t define you. Also; you cannot repeat the same mistake repeatedly. Stop going back to the bad habits, stop hurting people, your family and loved ones by your words and actions.
Definition of mistake is a wrong action attributable to bad judgment or ignorance or inattention. You might have made bad judgment about a situation leading to make bad decisions or said unpleasant things to your family or friends and hurting your loved ones. When you confess your wrongs to the Lord, He will cast them as far as the east is from the west, and He will remember them no more. (1John 1:9-10; If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us). Ask forgiveness too to the ones you have wronged, it doesn’t make you a lesser human being but it shows your maturing and your sincerity.
Sometimes we cause self-inflict pain in our lives by not forgiving our own self. Yes, you might have hurt by other people but there are lots of situations where we hurt ourselves. We hurt ourselves when we hold on to the weight of past mistakes and failures. We do more harm than good to keep beating ourselves up for the wrong decisions made in the past. We hurt ourselves when we don’t see anything beyond that and become comfortable with the “pain”. I believe God is telling you today to “let it go” forgive yourself. Allow God to start working in you and the healing process resume. Remember forgiveness is for you.
There is nothing to gain by holding yourself in unforgiveness and there is everything to gain by releasing yourself from unforgiveness. You got to let go and make move to a positive direction. Never give up on yourself after a mistake, learn from it.  Forgive and set yourself free.
