For This Child I prayed

My son is a happy, smart, energetic boy who has a smile that steals hearts and a laugh that is infectious. He communicates mostly using gestures and claps in delight when he does something he’s proud of. He’s almost four.My son is the kid that would lay on the floor at the grocery store if…

Out of the Wilderness

When I started my 30s I was excited. People told me my 30s would be an enjoyable time of stability. Little did I know I would end up comparing these ten years to a roller coaster ride. In these 10 years I:Ended a long term relationship with a restraining order, leaving town to hideWas stalked…

Perfect Peace

Stop worrying and you’ll have perfect peace. Thats basically the jist of Ephesians 4:6-7. Sounds simple. A basic one-step instruction. But it is so much easier said than done. Have you ever tried to remain calm in a room full of chaos? Or have you ever tried to fall asleep in a room full of…

Be still and know…

I don’t know when it started, but I know exactly when it ended. I will be 62 years old soon. My husband and I just celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary yesterday. It was not always worth celebrating. We got married when we were 27 and 28 years old, I am older. We had each done a 5-year stint…

Chastening For Those He Loves

Over the years I’ve noticed many Christians talking about the laws of God being very restrictive. One person may say that all God does is tells us is what not to do. To be honest, I have been guilty of this thinking at times. I had a wonderful conversation with God last week that I…

Bear One Another’s Burdens

I have many many testimonies. But the one I wanted to speak on this post about is a testimony about one of my patients. I work at a psychiatric unit of a large hospital since 2017. In 2018 there was a young man who came in, 18 years old who had a diagnosis of acute…

No testimony without the Testing

When I started this blog I was really hit hard in my finances yet God sent many out of no where to contribute to help this blog to come into fruition. Meanwhile I did not feel qualified to even write or minister anything to anyone because I was still in an intense battle and I…

A word the the wise Wife

My husband and I had a terrible fight days ago. A knock down, drag out fight. The kind of fight in a marriage that leads to someone (one or both parties) saying “I don’t want to don’t this anymore, I am done”. Maybe you’ve never uttered those ugly words to your husband, maybe he’s never…

Deliverance is The Children’s Bread….. Testimony

Psalm 34:17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them of all their troubles. Psalm 107:4 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress. Psalm 50:15 “And call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me” I listened to a…

Accept The Apologies That They Will Never Give You

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive youMatthew 6:14 Let’s be honest most of us struggle with forgiveness. It is probably one of the harder things to do especially if you have been legitimately and blatantly wronged believer of God or not. There are times where we can be…

Get Back Up

One thing I have always observed about babies when they are toddling around is that no matter how many times they fall they always just get right back up. Rarely will they show frustration because it is almost as though when they fall the determination they have to get back up supersedes their frustration about…

Remember a Good Witch is still a WITCH

A part of end times signs is the witchcraft that the world would experience. The more obvious are the pagans, the crystals, the candle magic just to speak on a few. At some point many of us were ignorant to even those signs of witchcraft but what I want to focus on is the covert…

It doesn’t matter why with Pride

Usually when I post something I start with an intro, hopefully to engage you because I know reading sometimes can be time consuming in the age of swiping and scrolling and keeping people’s attention is challenging. But right now my message is urgent…. pride is not of God and repent before you fall. While you…

When at Canaan be a Caleb

I don’t know about you but whenever I move to a new promise land the enemy will come to send a few spoilers to capture my joy. At first I didn’t notice this and perhaps as a result of not pay attention to that part I let a few things discourage me. When the enemy…

Fight!

So even if you aren’t a believer you feel it, the accusations, bad dreams simple misunderstandings that turn into hostile situations unwarranted, the control and manipulation, just darkness. I think the craziest thing is no matter how blatant the signs of the times there are still many who believe there is normalcy ahead, or those…

Ten

There was something I had buried in the furthest corner of my mind. I look back and wonder how something this big could even be hidden, but somehow it could, for years, decades even but its effects always reminded me that it was still there and would never go away. Even if no one had…

Don’t count the Times make it count!

If there were ever a time in any of our history that we didn’t have time for something it’s now. We don’t have time to still struggle to get it together, to backslide, to become distracted with feeling good, or life or the events taking place in this world. If there were ever a time…

Strange fruit

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. All my life I had to fight…. Sounds like a line from a movie right? Though I was no big fan of The Color Purple, I can identify with the notion of fighting my whole life for something…

Not so social media

Isn’t it funny how the things that we have now become so accustomed to are almost an extremity to just maybe a year and a half ago. It seems like now there is social distancing and masks and fear of being in close proximity to another human being. The whole pandemic has now set the…

Counselor not Competitor

We all have the need for counsel in our lives because honestly no one knows it all. Some are skilled with children more than others, relationship building more than others, spiritual warfare more than others and I believe it’s that way so we can always be reminded that there is strength in numbers and always…

For the Weary Woman

For the woman of God who is trying to endure to the end, I get it this is an ongoing battle to maintain your sanity. Often times while in your struggle of maintenance your heart grows so weary it seems that it may give. The whole earth is falling away and you may be alone,…

God will send a helping hand just get back up

I know it’s a drought out here and many things seem to be void of true love and authenticity. Many are turning away from the Most High totally handing themselves over to Satan while the people of God are struggling to stay spirit filled interacting with the rest of the world. There are seasons where…

While in Babylon be a Daniel

Lately Daniel has just been jumping out at me everywhere and I’ve been pondering on the ministry of Daniel. Daniel was prophetic but even as that is big deal what is just as notable is Daniel was so strong in character that in the face of death he was unwilling to bow down to a…

The Mythical “High Value Man”

When I first heard the concept of a “high value man” I was shocked that so many grown adults had come into agreement with this mindset. I am actually not sure of the origin of the concept but I was introduced by a friend to a social media influencer named Kevin Samuels. Now personally as…

Favor the Law

Many a Christian may find themselves debating back and forth about the law, how to keep it, who can keep, it is it done away with and so forth. We all have had our varying paths to how we came to become followers of Christ, be it upbringing, living a prodigal life, etc but one…

False Balances

As a woman of God I know how much God loves a cheerful giver. In life I’ve been happy to give and keep it moving without little thought of it but as of recent I had to consider my giving. Giving for me could look like time, love, charity, an ear, long suffering and availability…

Slaying dragons for loaves of bread

Right now everyone everywhere seems to be getting married and for those single women who are hoping for marriage this can be discouraging if you have been waiting on your turn for a long time. What I have noticed is that many have went to the extent of seeking out witchcraft and divination and tarot…

Testimony of Provision by Linda J.

For the past 6 months, someone has been buying me groceries. I only know the middle person who delivers them to my house. Every month I get a text requesting my list of needs. I have no idea who is being this generous to us but I am extremely grateful. I’ve learned to continue trusting…

Testimony of Deliverance by Erin J.

I was raised in the church. In fact, both of my parents and 4 of my 7 older siblings are ordained ministers. And there was a time in my life when serving God seemed burdensome. I went to bible studies and women’s meeting because I was “supposed to”, not necessarily because it was how I…

Single for Purpose

One of my single homegirls and I talk about how we want to reach women in the mud. Might be offensive to some but only those who have actually been in the mud understand that value of someone testifying of having been washed clean from it. It’s a process that can make you feel like…

Train up Your Child

Train up a child in the way that they should go and when he is old he won’t depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). This by far is one of the most commonly referenced scriptures yet least commonly used; layered with meaning and probably one of the most important verses in the Bible. When I first…

As a Roaring Lion

So you have repented. All praises to the Most High God! I am in joy for you that you have accepted that you needed to renounce the habitual sin that you witnessed having you, your sister, cousins, mom, aunts and grandmother bound. You heard from the Most High that this addiction that keeps popping up…

Love THAT Neighbor

I love my neighbor! No I actually do she’s always helpful and considerate and has a really cute dog. But if I say I love my neighbor and she’s cool and down to earth what reward is that she’s easy. But what about that other neighbor, the one who is inconsiderate who never speaks and…

There is a way that seems right

I love the book of Proverbs. By definition, a proverb is a short saying, stating a general truth. In the Bible, the book of Proverbs is a collection of these statements of general truth. Notice I said general truths. There are some proverbs that are applicable to all people at all times; there are others…

Repent! for the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand

I know no one wants to hear the message of fire and brimstone and I get that, who would? But just because we don’t want to hear something it doesn’t mean we don’t need to hear it. One thing about a repentance focused ministry or calling is that it’s not one anyone enjoys on the…

Breaking the Barrier to the Breakthrough

It’s funny, no matter how long we all have been followers of Christ, He never fails to show us how much his ministering will always be needed in our lives. I find that mostly every day is a teachable moment for me, and since I enjoy learning I welcome the lessons. However, some of my…

The Romans Road

I love the Word of God. Seriously! I mean it is deep, it is rich and abundant with Power and Life. The word of God is so powerful because it is literally God-Breathed. Just let that sink in. While your pondering, I would like to ask have you spent any time diving into his word…

The Feel Good Message Movement

We all love a good message; you know the ones that can pull us right up out of our despair. I am a realist though, always have been and finding optimism is a struggle when you’re a realist. One thing about being a realist is that you will come to appreciate when people are being…

The Light Bringer and His Ancient “New Age” Religion

In the book of Deuteronomy, God warns Israel to not do as the other nations by worshipping other gods so that they would not become ensnared to follow them (Deuteronomy 12:30-31). More important, God is just and does not make us guess. He tells us in details what He will punish for: that we should…
