For I Know the Plans….

image

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

This is just a reminder to someone today that God loves you. No matter what it looks like right now, He has a plan for your life.

You are not forgotten!

You are not alone!

You are LOVED!

This situation too will pass!

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for always being here for me, even when I don’t realize it, or feel you near. God, things seem crazy and chaotic right now, but I know you have great plans for my life. This trial is not who I am. I will overcome. This situation will work together for my good. Help me to trust Your plan even when I don’t understand. Thank you in advance for what You are doing, and for what You are going to do in my life. I love you and I know you love me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way on today!

A Psalm Moment: A Prayer for Guidance, Deliverance and Forgiveness

image

I came across Psalm 25 during a recent bible study. So many parts of it ministered to my soul.

One thing I know for sure is when you are dealing with issues of life, you will never go wrong when you pray and confess God’s word over your life.

I pray that as you read this Psalm, parts of it becomes real to you. I pray it gives you a restored sense of peace and hope that God loves YOU! God will deliver you out of your troubles when you TRUST Him. God will forgive your sins when you CONFESS to Him. God will guide you when you ASK and are willing to OBEY.

Take the Limits Off…

When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do. Charles M. Schwab

Sometimes where we are in life is a direct result of what we spoke, declared, and believed over our life.

It doesn’t matter if every person you know has failed at a particular thing, it doesn’t mean you will fail.

When It Looks Like All Hope Is Lost

But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. Genesis 50:20 (NKJV) 

Even when it does not look like it, God is always up to something. We have to learn to trust His plan even when we do not understand.

The story of Joseph in the bible is a great example that nothing can stop the plan God has for your life. Joseph went from being a slave, to prisoner, to being second only to the King.

From slavery to his promotion was something called process! It is in the process that many of us become discouraged and quit.

It may “look” like everyone around you is prospering, BUT looks are sometimes deceiving.  Continue reading

Finish Strong

Finish StrongThis past weekend I decided to flip through some old journals and quickly noticed a recurring theme throughout. Almost every year I wrote about a particular dream that God placed on my heart years ago as a teenager.

As I read journal after journal, I realized here I am at the start of a new year and I have yet to accomplish that dream.    

Interestingly enough, I encouraged others in the past to face their fears and move forward, but failed to follow my advice. Continue reading

The Greatest Gift

1  Corinthians 13I attended an intimate event last night so beautiful, I just had to share.

The invitation itself indicated this would be something unique. The host did not request anything, except our presence at her event.  She specifically requested no one bring a gift.

The host treated her guests to a four-course meal at an upscale restaurant.  We received the best of everything. Continue reading

What Are You Waiting For: The Time Is Now

What Are You Waiting For_Time Is NowWe can always find a reason why not to embark upon something that has been tugging at us.

We say we are waiting for the “perfect” moment or “perfect” timing to make the move.

But, what is the “perfect” moment? When is the “perfect” time?

Are you waiting for the “perfect” day, the “perfect” spouse, the “perfect” job, the “perfect” weight, or the “perfect” amount of money in your bank account? Continue reading

Hope Deferred…

Hope DefferedHope is defined as, “the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best”.

We have all hoped for something. There are times that the thing in which we hoped for manifests in our lives. Then sometimes our hopes turn into disappointments. Continue reading
