• TURN IT OVER- 1

    Of course our enemy would love for us to live on worry and wounds… BUT LET’S TURN IT OVER! Turn “it” over to God. Right now. Hand it over. To Him. It’s not just your Momma or your sister or your brother- Do you remember the old song: “It’s not my brother or my sister, but it’s me Oh God. Standing in the need of prayer”?  I’ve already established that I am not exempt from pain. But I get to choose Who I’ll stand with today and tomorrow and the next days. I get to decide if I’m going to allow the same pain from the same people, to inflict…

  • How do you run on FULL?

    One way is to stop letting other people dictate your happiness, your schedule, your commitments, and your purpose. Jesus came to run you up to full. The enemy came to run you down. Satan wants you and I to break down. He desires for us to run around on empty- and depleted. And if this is busy you, then you just might be fulfilling the enemy’s plans for your life. Satan sets us up for a fall, disaster, and loss. He wants you to miss out- he is wanting doubt to be your reasoning; he came just to empty you. (Hence the John 10:10 verse: “kill, steal, destroy.”) BUT JESUS…

  • A Pour-Over

    Do you know what happens when God pours out His Spirit? It gets you going again! Coffee gets a lot of people going every day and like me, I’m sure you’ve heard about “pour overs.” I don’t know everything there is to know about them because I’m not a coffee drinker, though I love the smell of it. However, I do know that a filter is involved and there is a period of time that it needs to sit and soak. When God’s Spirit settles in us, toxic things begin to come out and the flavor of life settles in. You don’t want to stay the same. His Spirit makes…

  • More Than Milk

    Let’s put our “hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.” 1 Tim. 6:17 Milk isn’t all there is! “Everything” is all there is. As Christians, we can have the more. But so often, we choose much less than we could have. We don’t want to be stingy and we sure don’t want to appear greedy, so we just stick with fluids. Liquids. And…pacifiers. Anytime I see a baby with a bottle, a pacifier is almost always also within reach. They’re enjoying life right now but wait until they find out meat, veggies, bread, juice, and sweets exist! They want more when they know that more…

  • Daily Light

    What is it that you are visualizing on a daily basis? Light helps us see things. It makes vision possible. Years ago, there was a Vision Room at the church my husband and I are still at. The gold metal sign said “Vision” and it was placed there to remind people coming in to pray, that vision is important. Since then, the Vision Room has become a Stronger Women’s devotion class. It’s our “Sisters” room. Great bible studies and sharing of stories bring us to a renewed commitment to Christ and experiencing Life Change. The vision for prayer has grown. Different people have interceded through the years. The vision never…

  • Hope is Huge

    Maybe you’ve heard it said: “Healed people do healed things.” Maybe you have also heard: “You’re set apart for a specific task.” Whether we believe we are healed and set apart or not, He is the God of hope. Whether we’ve had a good night’s sleep or not– He is the God of hope. Whether we’re happy with our lives at this moment or not– He’s the God of hope. That’s huge. That’s tremendous. Enormous. Massive. Extensive. God’s hope for us is far reaching. It covers us. It birth’s dreams. Hope can lengthen our lives. I don’t normally write about my brother’s battle with lymphoma. It was huge. Some days…

  • “I’m praying for you”

    What does “I am praying for you” mean? It means I believe enough to take your situation to our Creator. He can do something: In your situation. About your need. When I pray, it tells someone else they should keep hoping! And it means that I want them and what they’re dealing with, brought to Jesus for healing in some way. My prayer goes beyond even what I can do for people. It invites God’s involvement. There is nothing more exciting than having Him with us. We’ve heard it said many times: “In His presence are answers.” My husband mentions the praying hands emoji we use on all the socials…

  • A Double Dose

    Do you want to be double dosed? 2 Kings 2:9 “…Let me inherit a double portion of your spirit,” Elisha replied to Elijah. Through Elisha, double the miracles were recorded than done through Elijah. He got double dosed with spiritual qualities and characteristics way above the norm. Elisha had asked for something hard. He expected it to take place. It made history. And it makes me less hesitant to ask for more. What about you? **HERE’S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO… **PRAY IT. SAY IT. CHANGE IT: Double the miracles Lord. Double my portion! Double my boldness to ask and double my ability to receive. **JOIN US again soon to discover…

  • ALL- SURPASSING #4

    Amazingly enough, Christ’s characteristics can live through the lives we live. Live life as a BELIEVER. Satan can seduce you into sin and falsehood. If you’re an unbeliever, he will hold you back from seeing greater things happen. The enemy can keep you (believer or not) from rising up. By submitting to God and His all-surpassing power, you can then resist the devil’s ways of stopping you and blocking you. God does things at a greater degree. His performance surpasses any other. Get ready to be a host to the Holy Ghost. Access, receive, and entertain Him as your guest. Prepare to be a host to miracles…welcome them in! Do…
