The Choice is Yours.

butterflyFreedom is the power or right to act, without hindrance or restraint. Without the exercise of freedom this world would be chaotic and full of undisciplined leaders who would have no restrictions on their actions or prejudices. Although freedom is what makes society a better place to be, we as Christians lack the same freedom within our souls. Instead of waking up in the morning feeling liberated (free) and empowered, we wake up feeling depressed, bound and defeated. What happened is we have taken the blows of life and downloaded the pain and defeat into our spirits which in return have tortured and disrupted our once peaceful souls. Ladies, we must go back to the place where we first experienced God and begin to allow the joy and undisturbed composure to permeate our souls and release an oasis of God’s love that will protect us through the troublesome times in our life. Freedom is a choice. You either choose to be free or you choose to stay bound. What is your choice today?
Let me again experience the joy of your deliverance! Sustain me by giving me the desire to obey! Psalm 51:12 (Net Bible)

Walk Anyhow

butterflyWalking with God when everything is going good seems so easy to do. But what about those times when life refuses to give you a break and it seems as though your walk with God is a walk of disturbed peace and frustration? As Christians, we have to learn to walk with God when times are good and when times are bad. The joy that Nehemiah speaks about in Nehemiah 8:10 (The joy of the Lord is my strength) comes only from the Lord. If you would only delight yourself in God and let the gift of peace invade your soul then the comforter can begin to do his work, and the peace of God that passes all understanding will instruct your heart and mind on how to react when situations seem out of your control. Don’t allow the enemy to deter your path when you are taking steps that are ordained by God. A walk with the King is better than a walk to destruction. Stop getting off the righteous path and keep the faith. When things go wrong and life seems out of control, don’t give up. Walk anyhow.

so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Colossians 1:10 (NASB)

The Fight to the Finish

Most fights involve two people whose anger has gotten the best of them, they either say words that are hurtful or use bodily harm that endangers them. Bodily harm brings about unnecessary forces while hurtful words destroys emotions and the willingness to forgive. Although a hurtful word may go further than a punch, we have a Savior and Advocate that will protect us and fight for us during times of turmoil and chaos. No longer do we have to waste our time shouting frivolous words and using acts of violence, all we have to do is take our concerns to the Father and watch him win the war, speak a calmness into our soul and give us a peace that is hard to understand.

Exodus 14:14 – The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace

We are Different. We are Unique. We were Designed to be Like our Creator.

There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity” Margaret D. Nadauld

I CAN BREATH

Take a deep breath

And exhale the sadness

Take a deep breath and inhale His gladness

A breathe of relief

Says every thing is alright

To inhale the grief

Shows the pain in my life

No longer do I breathe

I just stop and smell the roses

I release all anxiety

For that’s what the Lord told us

He said to cast all our cares upon Him

To exchange His life for mine

To release the weight of my sin

Breathings easier now

Since God is in control

He took away the weight

The one that buried my soul

MY GOD REIGNS

Some say the mind is a terrible thing to waste

They never had to box the devil standing face to face

He comes in all forms in all shapes and in all sizes

His mission is to destroy the destiny God laid inside us

Some days I have joy

Some days I have sorrow

The enemies plan has succeeded

If I don’t look forward to tomorrow

I use to fall for his tricks, his games, and his demise

The Lord has come to save me

Yes! Jehova has heard my cries

He lifted me up out of a horrible pit

Everything that happened to me that was good

You better believe God did it

He even gave me peace of mind

Jehova Shalom is His name

It was right there in the wilderness

Where Jesus put the enemy to shame

I no longer feel defeated

I no longer feel ashamed

The enemy has been defeated

Yes! My God reigns
