Don’t Let The Devil Steal Your Joy

Good Afternoon My Loves,

dont-let-the-devil-steal-your-joy-blog

The Devil is busy. Today, don’t let the devil steal your joy. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the Devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against Him, and be strong in your faith.  You have to make up in your heart and mind daily you will not give him room to work. What God has in store for you is greater than what the enemy stole from you. Do not let him steal your joy.

The devil is alive and well. If he isn’t working on you, trust and believe he is in your neighborhood. You can be sure you have a major blessing coming when the devil is fighting you the hardest. He wouldn’t be attacking you if you didn’t have something valuable inside of you. Thieves don’t break into empty houses. He is threatened by your purpose. He targets your mind with lies and deceit to make you ignorant of God’s will. Satan tries in every way to limit your prayers because he knows your prayers will limit him. Don’t let him put a question mark where God has already put an exclamation point and a period.

If you’re going through hell, keep going. With God’s guidance you will make it through. James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.” The Devil had a plot but God has a plan. Wake up daily and serve notice to the Devil…today is not your day, tomorrow isn’t looking good and I’ve already booked my eternity with God. I refuse to let you steal my joy. The next time the Devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.

Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. Walk in your purpose and be encouraged. Don’t let the Devil steal your joy. The Devil just doesn’t know what to do with someone who will not give up. I know you can do this because…..Great is in you!

Have A Servant’s Heart of Humility Like Christ

Good Morning My Loves,

exemplify-servant-leadership-blog

Happy Sunday! I hope your day is filled with love and fulfillment by serving others. Having the heart of a servant means not only putting the needs of others first, but to serve with the right heart and intent by putting the will of God first. Your incentive cannot be driven by recognition, rewards or praise. It must solely be a mission of servanthood like Jesus Christ. Being a servant as exemplified by Jesus Christ is not an easy undertaking, let’s be honest. However, I would like to do a better job and really challenge myself and you all as well.

Jesus said, “Even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give His life ransom for many” Mark 10:45. As Christians, if we want to mature, grow and have the character of Christ we must advance in the ministry of giving of ourselves to and for others. A faithful servants heart is the heart of Christ. As we put the Lord first in our lives He calls us to reach out to others. Having the heart of a servant in service of others helps us grow because it teaches us humility. When you realize God’s purpose for your life isn’t just about you, He will use you in a mighty way. If serving is below you, leadership is beyond you.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others-Mahatma Gandhi. An easy way to tell if you have a servant heart is how you act when you’re treated like a servant. Serving others is rarely convenient, we have to be intentional in our service. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Lead with the heart of a servant and serve with the heart of a king. Servant serving is humility at it’s finest. Live each day with the hope that when you meet God He will say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing in service to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

Prayer For Strength And Peace Of Mind

Good Morning My Loves,

beautiful-blog

Today, I would like to post a prayer for strength and peace of mind. Prayer changes things. Sometimes all it takes is one small prayer to change everything. Proverbs 14:30 says, “A heart at peace gives life to the body.” Know that through prayer you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength. Whatever you are facing today, face it with prayer. A humble heart, combined with prayer and worship, always equals strength to keep going.

Prayer for today:

Dear Heavenly Father,

In this time of need, I ask you to strengthen me and give me peace of mind. You are my strength and my shield; you are my refuge, a very present help in trouble. Teach me to trust in you so that when the unexpected storms of life come, I will expect peace in the midst of those storms. Give me strength in my weakness, faith in my fear and power in my powerlessness. We know in our weaknesses your strength is revealed. Please give me the strength to endure this situation, and to find the blessings and lessons that it contains. Please give me the endurance to continue ahead. Guide my thoughts words and actions so that I walk your path of peace and love. Amen.

If It Doesn’t Open, It’s Not Your Door… Trust God’s Timing

Good Morning My Loves,

trusting-god-blog

Top of the morning to you! Today is going to be an amazing day, speak it into existence as though it were so. Where you are right now in life’s journey is a divine appointment. God has placed you here for a reason, remember that and He is working everything out. Trust God and believe in good things to come. If God shuts a door stop banging on it. If a door doesn’t open, it’s not your door. We always want to be in control of everything and sometimes we need to sit down somewhere. Yes, have several seats and relax. Be careful about rushing God’s timing. You never know who or what He is protecting you from. Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

see-God-blog

W.A.I.T., Watch God work in His timing and ways. Ask God about His purposes. Invite God to work in your heart. Trust God to fulfill His plans. Waiting on God’s timing doesn’t mean you are doing nothing, it means you are trusting His will. Stop worrying! When was the last time God failed you? Name the last time He was too late? Has He ever left you alone? The answer is NEVER! Your Heavenly Father has everything under control. He won’t fail you now, or tomorrow, or next week, or in the years to come. Our faith may be tested so that we may trust His faithfulness. With God there is always a way.

Trusting-God2-blog

If you have to force it, leave it. If it doesn’t open it’s not your door. Some doors that God doesn’t open for you is nothing more than divine protection. Don’t just pray that God will open doors, pray that He will close doors that need to be closed in your life. Remember, that God doesn’t close one door without getting ready to open another with bigger and greater things. Make it a priority to make God a priority in your life. God knows where you’re going and what you need when you get there, just put your faith and trust in Him. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I trust in you and I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!

One Day At A Time

Good Morning My Loves,

one-day-my-love-blog

Hey, hey, hey it’s Saturday! Isn’t God amazing? He saw fit to bless us with another day. This bright new day is filled with opportunities, choices and chances. This remarkable gift, this one day, cannot be exchanged refunded or replaced. Handle it with care. Make the most of it. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. If we treated each day as if it were our last imagine what we would accomplish. Just keep moving forward, one day at a time the view from the top is so worth the climb.

Trials can come like a freight train…one car after another, after another but eventually the last car passes. When problems seem unceasing, remind yourself, “This too shall pass.” Handle one trial at a time in the power of the Holy Ghost until each series of events is over. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Our lives are made up of a million moments spent in a million different ways. Some are spent searching for peace, for love and harmony. Others may be spent just surviving day to day. But there is no greater moment than when we find that life, with all it’s joys and sorrows are meant to be lived just one day at a time. Keep your mind on God’s promises in spite of any news you may hear that tempts you to be afraid today. God promises to be with you, watch over you and take care of you. He says He will never leave or forsake you.

You have to get up every morning and tell yourself, “I can do this!” You are the only one that creates your reality. Never give up, don’t even let defeat come into your thoughts. Don’t worry about who believes in you, just believe in yourself. Don’t make announcements make moves and they will announce themselves. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this one step at a time because….GREAT IS IN YOU!

The Difference

Good Morning My Loves,
take-time-to-pray-blog

Today is going to be a beautiful day, speak it as though it were so. Each day you rise, take time to spend with God it makes a difference. I happened upon a poem by an unknown author that I would like to share with you called The Difference.

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day. I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task. “Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered He answered, “You didn’t ask.” I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on, gray and bleak. I wondered why God didn’t show me He said, “But you didn’t seek.” I tried to come into God’s presence. I used all my keys at the lock. God gently and lovingly chided, “My child, you didn’t knock.” I woke up early this morning and paused before I entered the day. I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.

take-time-to-pray-blog

Life is busy and we are constantly on the go but, we must take time to pray. God speaks to those who take time to listen, and He listens to those who take time to pray. If we can give time to social media, then surely we can give time to pray and spend with God. Praying is putting yourself in the hands of God and trusting Him. Sometimes all it takes is one prayer to change everything. He can do more in a second than we can accomplish in a lifetime. God is never too busy to listen, never be too busy to talk to Him.

Prayer-changes-things-blog

Remember, take time to pray before you begin your day. A busy life makes prayer harder, but prayer makes a busy life easier to handle. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. Pray for your family and friends, it’s the best gift you will ever give. I know you can do this because…..Great Is In You!

Don’t Let The Devil Steal Your Joy

Good Morning My Loves,

joy-blog

Today is a beautiful day, rejoice and be glad in it. Don’t let anyone or anything steal your joy. The enemy is busy. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” We must stay alert. There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict. Walk away, the battle they are fighting is not with you it’s with themselves. If allowed, the devil uses people too. You cannot let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best person you can possibly be.

Don’t-Let-Satan-Steal-Your-Joy-Because-He’ll-Try-To-In-Every-Way-He-Can-blog

Every morning take a good look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I’m going to have a great day and I refuse to let anyone steal my joy!” Misery loves company, never invite it in. This world is so full of hatred even when uplifting others it meets resistance. I refuse to be moved or succumb to the hatred of others and let it consume me. My mission is to uplift, motivate and encourage and I will not let the devil steal my joy and passing it on to others. He has tried it and the way my God is set up, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. God will not position you for greatness without preparing you for the position He assigned to you, to fulfill the promise He purposed for you. The giant in front of you is never bigger than the God who lives in you.

Sometimes it’s hard to be inspired when defeat is knocking at the door. Look to God, He is your source. Praise God in the face of your problems. Be encouraged. We’re more than conquerors through Him that love us. My hope for you today, that you are abundantly blessed. Be a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

God Has The Final Say

Good Morning My Loves,

God-has-the-final-say-today-blog

A Sensational Tuesday to you! Today you have already received a blessing, you’re here to see another day. I just want you to know that whatever your circumstance is be still and know God has the final say. He is working in your life, right now, in ways you cannot begin to understand. Everything that the enemy has stolen God is going to restore: your joy, your peace, your health and your dreams. John 16:33 says, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.” Nothing in this world can stop God’s plan for your life. When you don’t see a way, God can make a way. When it looks like it’s over God will send you into overtime. He has the final say…let go and let God.

You say I can’t figure it out, God says I will direct your path. You say, it’s impossible, God says all things are possible. You say I’m not smart enough, God says I will give you wisdom. You say I’m afraid, God says I have not given you fear. You say, I feel alone, God says I will never leave nor forsake you. I know you have said these things, so have I. Let’s always remember what God says in His word. You may have been wrecked but not totaled, God has the last say. You are not in control but you are deeply loved by the one who is.

Rest in peace of mind my Loves and know that God is in control. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. God has a plan, just trust in Him and His timing. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….GREAT IS IN YOU!

You Deserve To Be Happy

Good Morning My Loves,

God-is-real-blog

A marvelous and magnificent Monday to you all! You are blessed more than you know. Everyday choose happiness. One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. It’s time for some spring cleaning in your life. Ask yourself are you really happy? Happiness is a choice…. you have to choose it daily. Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned , earned, worn, consumed or bought. Until you have a close personal relationship with God, nothing will fulfill you and happiness is only temporary. When we put Him first, every other single thing will fall into place. Happiness is God’s peace in your heart. Happiness is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, humility and gratitude.

im-here-blog

The only one that can truly satisfy the human heart is the one who created it. The most powerful and purest form of love is found in a relationship with God. There is nothing in the law of God that will rob you of happiness; it only denies you of that costing you sorrow. Prayer for today: Dear Most Gracious Heavenly Father, We come at this moment as humble as we know how, thanking you for your grace and mercy. Lord, I want a closer relationship with you. If there is anything or anyone in my life that does not have my best interest at heart Lord, please remove them from my life. I know Father, without you first in my life I will always feel a void. With you first Lord, I will never be last. I thank you for your patience with me and loving me when I didn’t even love myself. Help me to find comfort in knowing that you will never leave or forsake me. I love you Lord. Amen.

Today my Loves search your soul and be honest with your findings. If you have felt that something is missing seek God. Nothing else can take the place of His love for you. Be blessed and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

God Will Provide

Good Morning My Loves,

God-will-provide-blog

A sensational Tuesday to you. Today is the day! Have faith that today God will provide for you. Philippians 4:19 says, “But my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God is making things happen for you. Even when you don’t see it. Even when you can’t feel it. Even if it’s not evident. God is working on your prayers. We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties. Whatever is worrying you right now, give it to God and forget about it. Trust that God is in control.

Standing-on-the-Promises-God-Will-Provide-blog

God’s plans will always be greater and more beautiful than all your disappointments. When you are down to nothing God is up to something. He is working in your life right now in ways you can’t understand. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. There’s no testimony without the test. Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything.

Today find rest in the fact that God will provide. Give whatever you are holding on to and battling to Him. Have faith, it can move mountains. Be blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do it because……GREAT IS IN YOU.
