Recently something happened that challenged something God told me. It made me very nervous and concerned. But that is part for the course when you are waiting for the promises of God. But when challenged, all you need to do is go to God in prayer which is exactly what I did.
Well the Lord answered me, so precisely and strongly that it changed something inside of me permanently. I realize that there is a season in which you enter into God’s rest and you don’t come out of it.
The LORD’S answer finalized something for me once and for all and all I have to say is that, there will be no more fighting, no more contending and no more fear. God’s promises are going to come to pass. Period case closed.
When God shows you something, it’s for a season of time. Many things may take place before that happens. But it does not in anyway negate the promise of God. In fact some things must take place before you receive your promise or promises (because God has promised us many things).
Whether it’s healing, wealth, salvation of loved one, ministry or career, there may be some things that must come to pass BEFORE your promises manifest. Don’t be discouraged by what you see or hear. God know exactly what He is doing.
Sometimes we have to go around the same mountain of hurt, pain and devastation until we learn those lessons once and for all. But it’s all good! God is good!
Hebrews 4:9-11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 So there remains a [full and complete] Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has once entered His rest has also rested from [the weariness and pain of] his [human] labors, just as God rested from [those labors uniquely] His own. 11 Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience [as those who died in the wilderness].
Valentines day came and went and I wouldn’t have remembered it was Valentines day if it were not for a few friends texting me to wish me a happy Valentines day. But I would have figured it out when I got to my job. I’m working part time at a school and the kids were working on Valentines projects that day.
I am not one to get depressed because I don’t have a partner to share this holiday with. The day just comes and goes like any other day. When the time is right it will happen and I will enjoy it then. Meanwhile, I am just on a mission to live life to the fullest.
Someone shared something on Instagram and I thought I would share it right here. It’s true. People put a lot of emphasis on love and being loved by someone and yes, it’s important, but not more important than God’s unconditional love for us. Here is the post:
We all need to be #loved. That’s a #fact. We all desperately need massive doses of love in our life to be #healthy individuals. #God says, “I want to #love you.” God is love, and he knows you need to be loved.
But, second, we develop the false idea that our need to be loved is solely dependent upon one person or a group of people. When you expect someone else to meet 100 percent of your need for love, you’re asking for #trouble. You’re setting yourself up for hurt and opening the #door for the fear of rejection. When you look to any other person besides God to meet all your love needs, he or she can’t. There is no human being alive that can love you as completely and as fully as you need to be loved, and there never will be. Only God can do that.
Does God ever love us through other people? Of course. Does God want us to love others? Yes. Does he want to use us as #channels of love? Absolutely.
But, you will never have all your needs met by any person or group of people. God never meant it to be that way. They just don’t have enough love. #Human love is limited. God’s love is #unlimited and #unconditional. No matter how deep your need is, he can fill it.
So this #Valentine’s Day, remember that God’s love is the only unlimited love that is possible.
I ❤️ you!
We have all gone through heartbreak at least once in our lives. On Sunday one of my Facebook friends posted this and it broke my heart. We are not as close as we used to be, but my heart still ached for her.
If God closes the door on something, He has a reason! Thank Him! I am posting her story with the YouTube she included. It may help someone:
I was in LOVE last year 💗 complete with long-awaited alignments, uncanny confirmations, a beautiful family and an anticipated future. Some of you knew…. Bliss and promised intentions spoken for months, led to looking at a wedding next Saturday, February 17th . Committed to what seemed to be an ‘ordained’ and affirmed foundation I’ve been baffled as I believed the words and actions of a ‘man of God.’ With no resolve, no remorse and no ‘discussion’ I was shocked with a September break. I was craftily concealed, deceived and then discarded. He got married a bit over a week ago ~ I do choose to bless them 🕊
Why am I sharing? To give honor to my heart and to my voice. I was in LOVE last year … I still am!!! I still LOVE my Lord and my own heart. Both, are amazing ~ after being callously bruised are raised up to new beginnings. And I choose to continue to love and to declare that one ‘truly worthy’ of this amazing heart will come and be blessed BEYOND! To all who have had their heart ripped … be hopeful ~ broken places can, in time, bloom more beautifully! Anticipating!!
Happy Valentines Week 💝🙏
Hearing from God is never easy. Even for people who feel as though they have a good track record in this area. I kind of feel that way. I have a good track record, but God recently showed me that I misunderstood what He was saying to me.
Recently I shared about moving and it all stemmed from me misinterpreting what God was saying to me. It wasn’t that God wasn’t speaking, it was just that I didn’t understand him.
I had tried to move to Georgia in the past and God spoke clearly and said “This is the place (Florida) where your miracle is going to happen, this is the place where your prophecy is going to come to pass” and the minister tacked on: “and you don’t have to run up to Atlanta”. That word stands strong and clear. It still applies to this day.
So one night the Lord directed me to leave the television on (the Christian Station) and I woke up hearing Pastor John Gray share how he and his wife both moved to Atlanta and met in church. Well I assumed God was telling me that I needed to move, but what I now know is that God was simply telling me I would meet my mate in church! Simple enough. But I ran off on a tangent about Atlanta again.
So I hadn’t been able to get to my church regularly and started to visit another church on occasion and also was watching online and I started thinking that I was going to make the new church my home church. Long story short, through a series of unusual circumstances the Lord showed me that I am to return to my former church and that is where His promises will come to past. I had misinterpreted what God was saying, but the Lord got me back on track.
Not sure what God is saying? Keep asking, keep praying and more than anything ask for understanding. He will make His Will CLEAR!
Proverbs 3:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
I’m done naming and claiming a mate. God knows who he is and where he is. This song is for you:
So a few days ago, I posted two videos of my favorite YouTube families. (Yes, I need a life…haha) I am going to post a video for all of the families I watch occasionally and regularly. One day I realized everyone of those families included an African/and or African American wife and a Caucasian husband. Honestly that is pretty much all I see where it comes to interracial couples on YouTube.
Suddenly, I started thinking that maybe there was a reason why I was drawn to these videos and perhaps my future mate is Caucasian. After all the last two men who asked me to go on a date were Caucasian men. So here I was beginning to move toward that mindset when suddenly the Lord reminded me of a prophetic word I received many years ago. The word specifically said my husband was a Black man who everyone was wondering who he would marry. Yep, that was the word.
Not to be deep and spiritual. Just something interesting. Below is a sampling of the families I watch regularly and occasionally. Take a look. lol
