Yes, I have had a rough time of it along my life's journey. Some of it has been self-inflicted and some of it has been at the hands of others. As a woman of color; I have had to navigate life as a diplomat. I have to ensure my family is informed on the ways of this world and also empowered to make a difference in this world regardless of the obstacles presented. I will say that wanting better and deserving better is warranted. I will say getting better is a task I have undertaken personally.
Time for the Goliath in your life to be killed. You are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. If God is for you who or what can be against you. What do we wrestle against? It is not flesh or blood but principle, spiritual wickedness in high places. Giants and mountains can fall just by speaking a word of Faith to the situation. Faith Speaks and it is so! David knew God had protected him before against a lion he certainly knew this mere Goliath was a temporary obstacle that would be cut down.
Ezekiel Chapter 36 is a powerful reminder that God's name will never be forgotten or put to shame. God's word is truth. He declares a word and it will come to pass. Even if detours occur from us being fearful, faithless, stubborn, and fleshly - basically seeking all else to make us happy and forgetting God is our provider. Don't get it twisted, God word and His name will always prevail as the Supreme Authority in the matters of life, death, and everything in between. He will do what He promises for His people - even when His people had gone astray. Seems like for such a time as this, some of God's people are realizing that it is time to return. God's grace and His mercy is sufficient and will restore. God declared and decreed land restoration. God also reminds us that He is Holy and His name will never be mocked. Remember those who profess to be called by His name need to recognize that intentional, transparent, and recognizable living according to Biblical principles is the requirement.
Faith Speaks and it is so...prayer, purpose, and praise. Father you have shared with us grace, mercy, and instructions. Thank you for your perfect promises seen in the scriptures. Thank you furthermore that whatever is written is so and we can bank on whatever you say goes! Continue to help us live a life worthy of you. Lord thank you for forgiving us. Thank you for allowing us the chance to know you. But more importantly, thank you for knowing us, loving us, and keeping us - in spite of us! Amen Indeed.
N.O.W. Speaks = New-Beginnings is our Witness Speaks - Insightful conversations where testimonies are shared on the journey for how next level living occurred. Living life more abundantly as promised from God's Word. John 10:10 The Message Version 6-10 Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep rustlers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.
The journey is constant. The struggle is real. The victory is available. The goal can be achieved. How? Well there is a realm where our destiny is unveiled. We can tap into this arena by simply putting our faith into action and our works into a precise plan. So, yes it can be ours to behold if we just strive on...
God has promised so much and I am just experiencing a small portion of what He has for me. I will say while getting to this point there were some devastating moments. NOW though is time for New Beginnings to be my Witness. Love and Blessings to all!
Naomi knew something about having a BitterSweet life journey. Check out the Book of Ruth. I also wanted to provide some insight as why my life has some Essence of Myrrh. Love, Blessings, and Peace to all! Miriam Proverbs 3:5-7
When all is stripped down and the only thing that is visible does it reflect only you Lord? God help me reflect you, your love, your way, and just you for nothing else matters! What do I reflect? What do people see? What is my reflection showing?
God commands us to be "woke" and God also admonishes us to not be conformed to this world BUT to be transformed. There has to be a change and alternative course of how we have been living our lives and how we have engaged with one another on this planet earth. So, The Thankful Revolution is challenging all of us to Wake Up and Change!
