From Filthy Rags to Riches

In what ways are you impacting someone? Is your story touching another person’s life? Do you believe that in and through Christ, that you are making a difference in that person’s life?

I have a purse. It has Disney princesses on it and I bought it recently from the Disney store. As I was strolling through the Disney Store, the Holy Spirit of God led me to buy it. One of the reasons He led me to buy it was because He wanted me to use the characters on it as a way to be a shining light for Jesus at work.

I bought the purse because I wanted to show the co-worker (all, who are women) and the girls at the daycare that we are all princesses. That’s right: We are all princesses of the One True King, Jesus Christ.

All women are princesses. Yes, we are queens, in the Name of Jesus Christ, but we are princesses of the King. My name, “Sarah,” means princess. I know that I am a princess of the King because He knows my name. In the Name of Jesus Christ, God knows my name. And he knows yours too, dear youth.

Dear youth girls: You are princesses. God handpicked each and every one of you and named you by heart and by soul. By heart and by soul, His Spirit touches you. By heart and by soul, His hands mend your broken heart. By heart and by soul, His light shines upon you, transforming what the enemy meant to be your un-happiness into a happy ending. Your story from rags to riches is what the King meant for you, from the beginning. May riches be your portion today!

~”Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”~Romans 12:1-2, New International Version~

Dear princess of the King of Kings: You are His beloved. You are the beloved apple of God’s eye. You are precious in His sight. May His hands remove the plots and plans of the enemy from your life and turn your sad story into a testimony! May riches instead of filthy rags be your portion today!

You are altogether lovely and God says so too! You are altogether pure and God says so too! Your sins are washed away and they are altogether as white as snow. Believe it! And also believe in Christ Jesus!

~”Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”~Philippians 4:8-9, New International Version~

Walk in victory, dear princess of the King of Kings!! Walk healed today, O daughter of the Most High God! Walk in those ballroom dance shoes and rock out that dance floor today as a child of God today in His palace, the throne room!

The throne room is waiting for you…..Are you ready?? Comment below with your testimony below on how God changed your life. Share your rags to riches story today! ūüôā

You are a Victor!

Dear Youth,

Do you believe in healing….not just any kind of healing, but in the healing power of the Son of God?

~”And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”~Mark 16:17-18, New International Version~

The Son of God is Jesus Christ. During His years of ministry on the earth, He performed many, MANY miracles on the sick so that they could get well. But, the question is this: How can a person, who is fighting mental illness, say that the healing power of Jesus Christ has come upon them?

This is a question that I will do my best to answer as it pertains to the glory of God as well as the battle (which is real) I face surrounding mental illness.

I fight against Bi-Polar Disorder. This is a battle that I have to fight EVERYDAY. Even though it looks like I am surrounded by a mental illness, I am REALLY surrounded by God the Father and¬† His songs of deliverance are my portion. God’s songs of deliverance are your portion too, dear youth.¬†

~”You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah”~Psalm 32:7, English Standard Version~

Many environmental factors caused me to develop this illness over the years, such as the divorce of my parents, having an unstable childhood, and other factors. I do not wish what I have had to go through on any child or teen, but do want to offer encouragement to those who are fighting mental illness:

  1. Find a hobby.¬† For me, that hobby was ballroom dancing. My friend from church got me into ballroom dancing and I¬† use this gift and talent to glorify God. ~”So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”~1 Corinthians 10:31, New Living Translation~
  2. Listen to Worship music. Worship music soothes the soul. I ride the MARTA bus on my way to work every morning and on my way to work, I put my ear buds in my ears and listen to Michael W. Smith, Tori Kelly, Hillsong United, and other Christian singers and bands that I find to be uplifting to my soul. It is a great way to get the day started as well as encourage me!
  3. Pray.¬† ~”Never stop praying.”~1 Thessalonians 5:17, New Living Translation~ It is easier said than done, but pray. Form a prayer closet too, if you wish. I watched the movie, War Room, and was inspired by one of the characters in the movie to make my own prayer closet. I use a saree bottom ( bottom of an Indian dress), as the anointed place that I sit in order to pray. I even listen to worship music as I pray or if I need peace and quiet, I pray in the quiet.
  4. Find a Church for support. I go to church and ask my Sunday School class to pray for me. The purpose of a church, Sunday School, or Small Group is to have that support as you are going through tough times and issues, then they can assist you through prayer or another need that you are asking.
  5. Journal Letters to God. I LOVE to journal. It is therapeutic and it is a good way to express your feelings and heart to God in a way that glorifies Him and petitions your requests and prayers to Him.

I hope these tips help you in the battle against mental illness and point you ultimately to God the Father. God bless you, dear youth! 

Do you believe?

His fingerprints are here! His fingerprints are here! His fingerprints are here!

Dear reader: I proclaim that the fingerprints of God have come into your life. I proclaim that the fingerprints of God are leaving tidings of comfort and joy on your name. I proclaim that the fingerprints of God are leaving you a sign: the sign of Jesus Christ.

~”For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”~Isaiah 9:6, New International Version~

The Sign that God leaves you with to keep seeking is the sign of Jesus Christ. The Sign that God leaves you with to keep press onto is the mark of Jesus Christ. The Sign that God leaves you with is an inheritance that can only be found, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Dear reader: Seek God the Father. Seek His Kingdom. Seek His Word to find out what it means to be a child of God. All that you have to do is to call upon the Name of the LORD and you too will be saved.

~”If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”Romans 10:9, New International Version~

To be a child of God is to give your life as an offering to the LORD. To be a child of God means to completely and entirely surrender to God in your current state of brokenness. To be a child of God means to let the Holy Spirit of God use you, dear reader, in the Way that He wants to use you.

Dear reader: Let the hands of God use you in the Way He wants to use you. Let the hands of God put you on that Potter’s Wheel so that He can mold and fashion you into the child of His Kingdom that He has called and ordained you to become.

You are a king. You are a queen. You are ONLY in this world and not of it. ONLY!!

You are meant to have a crown that God wants to place on your head. The question is this: Do you want this crown? Do you believe that this is your calling? Do you believe that God’s plan is your destiny?

The choice is up to you to decide. Heaven and Hell are at stake. May Heaven rain upon you and be your portion, dear reader.

‚ÄúBe glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the¬†Lord¬†your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before.”~Joel 2:23, English Standard Version~

I pray that you choose to walk in this rain that God wants to pour on you. May it wash you of your past. May it wash you of your wrongs. May it wash you clean of the scarlet that is on you and make you white as snow, by His power.

‚ÄúCome now, let us reason together, says the¬†Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”~Isaiah 1:18, English Standard Version~

You are now healed by His stripes, dear reader. Now, walk in Victory today. God bless you!

I AM is my Bridegroom and I am His Bride, in the Name of Jesus Christ

Cleanliness is Godliness, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

That’s right, dear reader. I’ll say it again: Cleanliness is Godliness, in the Name of Jesus Christ. That’s because God meant for things to remain and to stay in order. The universe is order. Order is because of what God meant to be: The divine is now in complete order and serenity because of Jesus Christ.

~”But godliness with contentment is great gain.”~1 Timothy 6:6, New International Version~

I went through a time of my life in which my room was in complete disarray and dirty. Books were stuffed in my closet, clothes were scattered on the floor, and papers were disorganized on the floors of my bedroom. My mind was scattered. My brain was disorganized. I did not know the meaning of order nor did I know the meaning of what cleanliness meant to God in my walk with Jesus Christ.

I did not understand that cleanliness is EVERYTHING to God. I did not understand that cleanliness is really next to Godliness because Jesus Himself washed us of our uncleanliness with His blood.

His blood washed me clean of my impure state. His blood washed my mind clean of disorganized thoughts. His blood washed my heart and soul clean of impurities that needed to be tidied, all for His sake, so that I could put my focus on my Heavenly Father.

~”Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”~Philippians 4:8-9, New International Version~

The red foxes are gone. The big and the small red foxes have been washed away by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. All of the red foxes (the sexually immoral, the thieves, the liars, etc.) are completely gone, in the Name of Jesus Christ! Praise Him!

This means that keeping my personal space clean was a sure sign that God would be pleased with His daughter for keeping her space clean! 

~”Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards are in bloom.”~Song of Solomon 2:15, New International Version~

Almighty God is pleased with me for stepping out in obedience. Almighty God is pleased with me for tidying my room so that it can be a reflection of Heaven on earth. Almighty God is pleased with me for cleaning my space so that it can be a place of fellowship and communion with my Abba Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

No to the dirty. No to the impure. Yes to cleanliness, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

I am now pure in His sight. I am now white as snow in the eyes of the LORD. I am now His bride. The veil has been opened. I see Jesus face-to-face!

~”Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”~Isaiah 1:18, New International Version~

~”But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.”~2 Corinthians 3:16, English Standard Version~

I am His. I am now His bride. I am a bride of God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is a privilege since I stepped out in obedience and cleaned my living space so that the Holy Spirit of God could touch me with His hands.

With His hands, my sins are washed away. With His hands, I am as white as snow. With His hands, I am altogether beautiful because every flaw is removed for His sake. I am a new creation. I am made new, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in¬† you.”~Song of Solomon 4:7, New International Version~

Let us pray for you, dear reader:

Dear God,

Thank You for touching the lives of every reader. Thank You for touching the lives of every reader, who is reading this blog post, so that he or she can gain understanding of what it means to be close to you. May each reader accept what it means to You to be Godly and that cleanliness is a part of being a Godly man or woman of Your Kingdom. May each reader accept Your blood as a part of the cleansing process. May each reader be still and trust in You as he or she fixes their gazes on You and learns about what it means to be Godly from Your Word. Thank You for revelation by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for divine insight and wisdom. And Thank You for healing. I give You the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

 

God bless you, dear reader! Grace, peace, and many blessings to you! ‚̧

 

 

Goodness and Greatness is Your Portion, in the Name of Jesus Christ

Walk. Walk, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Dear reader: I have a message for you today. It is time for you to walk. It is your time to rise and it is your time to shine for the Son of God’s sake, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For we walk by faith, not by sight.”~2 Corinthians 5:7, English Standard Version~

~”Trust in the¬†Lord¬†with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”~Proverbs 3:5-6, English Standard Version~

Dear reader: In order for your light to shine for the King of Kings and Almighty God, you must be ready to surrender to Him, in the Name of Jesus Christ, in your current state of brokenness. The question is, are you ready to surrender? Will you trust God in the process?

Dear reader: God cannot use you if you are not broken. You must allow for the Spirit of God to break you so that the ministry that He uses you in is most effective and brings the most glory to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.

~”But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”~Matthew 6:33, King James Version~

~”For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”~Romans 14:17, English Standard Version~

Do you want to know of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ or do you want to know the Kingdom of Jesus Christ? 

The Kingdom of God that is found in Jesus Christ is life. The Kingdom of God that is found in Jesus Christ is peace. The Kingdom of God that is found in Jesus Christ is joy. The Kingdom of God that is found in Jesus Christ is all of the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

~”For to be carnally minded¬†is¬†death; but to be spiritually minded¬†is¬†life and peace.”~Romans 8:6, King James Version~

These fruits of the Holy Spirit are pruned by God. These fruits of the Holy Spirit give birth to love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”~Galatians 5:22-23, New Living Translation~

Dear reader: Choose to give birth to love. Choose to give birth to joy. Choose to give birth to peace and all of the other fruits of the Holy Spirit of God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. The question is: Are you ready? Let us pray:

Dear God,

Thank You for each and every reader, who is reading this blog post. Thank You that each and every reader was ordered by their footsteps by Your hands so that he or she could read this Word of blessing. Speak to each reader about the purpose and plans that You have for his or her life. Guide each reader, by the power of Your Holy Spirit, into the destiny that You intended for each reader to attain and do not stop the birthing process of the destiny that You desire for he or she to walk into. Do not stop the birthing process until You say, “It is finished. Well done, my good and faithful servant!” I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

God bless you, dear reader! Grace and peace! ‚̧

This is the Father’s Love to Me, in the Name of Jesus Christ

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Dear reader: You may be reading this and wondering why I say, Amen. It is because God is good ALL OF THE TIME!! Amen.

God is good…..all of the time…..and Jesus is LORD!! Immanuel is my GOD and I give Him all of the glory, the honor, and the praise of which it is all due to Him. Amen.

You see, dear reader, if I did not praise God for who He is, then why should I be at peace? Why should I not believe in His resurrection power? Why should I not believe in the strength of Christ alone, my Cornerstone?

The strength of God is my strength. The peace of God is my peace. And His joy is mine. ALL MINE, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

I am His and He is mine, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

I have been through many MANY trials. From the aftermath of my parents’s divorce from childhood to losing friends to homelessness and gossip, God stood by me through it all. Through it all, His eyes were watching me. His hands were protecting me as well as angels.

~”No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue¬†thatshall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This¬†is¬†the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness¬†is¬†of me, saith the LORD.”~Isaiah 54:17, King James Version~

Dear reader: God commands us to pray. God commands us to be watchful and vigilant too, because the devil is looking to steal your blessings.

~”The thief comes only to steal and¬†kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”~John 10:10, English Standard Version~

For the past month, I have been out of a job. I called the prayer line for Joshua Media Ministries International (JMMI) and a kind prayer warrior prayed for me and for the LORD to provide for this need. God provided for me a job…..on the same day! Amen!

~”And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 4:19, New International Version~

I now work at a daycare. Serving the children is a joy and it brings me a great sigh of relief to be a wellspring of living waters and touch their lives with the love of Jesus Christ. Children need God. Children need Jesus. Children need to feel the rushing Wind of the Holy Spirit of God touch them with the Father’s love.

Yesterday, I did an art project with the children at the daycare. The project consisted of gluing tiny and colorful pieces of paper onto the shape of a cardboard person.

It was the bright colors of these tiny, pieces of paper that God used to speak to me. It made me think of the song, “Colors of the Wind,” a Disney song from my childhood days.

The colors of the Wind from the Holy Spirit of God spoke to me. This made me think to myself…..what a wonderful God that we serve!! Every child has an identity through every multifaceted color of the Holy Spirit’s rushing Wind. They fall afresh on them, like a dove, from His Holy Spirit. His Holy Spirit is pleased with these children!

Every child is special. Every child is precious in the eyes of God. He loves them VERY much!

~”Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”~Matthew 19:14, New International Version~

I now want to pray for children to know Jesus. Let us pray!:

Dear God,

Thank You that Your hands created children. Thank You for their precious heart beats. Thank You that You desire for every child to come into Your Kingdom and that You will not stop until You say, “It is finished!” I pray that any child, who is reading this blog post, will be encouraged to want to know more about Jesus. I pray that if the child does not have parents, who he or she can talk to about Jesus, that he or she will ask a trustworthy adult for the Truth because Your Word is the Truth. I pray that every parent, who is reading this blog post, will tell their children about the Gospel of Your beloved Son. May the child’s parents become God-fearing and God-honoring as they serve You humbly and wholeheartedly. I pray that every reader, whether he or she is a child or not, will enter into what is most important: You. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

God bless you, dear reader! ‚̧

 

 

My Will is to Do His Will, in the Name of Jesus Christ

God bless you, dear reader!

As I am writing this article on my day off from work, I want to say this one simple word of encouragement to you: Amen.

That’s right. Amen. You may be reading this article and wondering why I say, Amen? It is because I wish to bless you and keep you. Amen. I wish for the Face of the LORD Jesus Christ to shine upon you, face to face. Amen. I wish for the hands of Abba Daddy to comfort you, in the midst of such grieving and troubling times.

“‘ “The LORD bless you and keep you;the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” ‘~Numbers 6:24-26, New International Version~

I say, Amen, because it is a sign of grace. I say, Amen, because it brings me a great sigh of relief in this dark age. I say, Amen, because it brings the multitudes together. And I say, Amen because the Word of God is Power and it brings power to the weak so that the weak can say, “I can do all things, in the Name of Jesus Christ.”

Amen is a cry from the heart. Amen is from the deepest part of the soul that needs the healing fingerprints of God Almighty to touch its cracked and broken parts. Amen, dear reader, is the Word of encouragement that I wish to give you from the LORD today. 

Amen, dear reader is a sign. Amen is a sign of your deepest need for Jesus. ūüôā

~”All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.”~Acts 2:42, New Living Translation~

Amen unifies. Amen blesses. Amen keeps you shining your light so that it keeps pressing on, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen brings you through the darkest storm of your life and into the rays of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Jesus wants to heal you. Jesus wants to touch you. Jesus wants to to be in fellowship with His Heavenly Father: Do you want Jesus? 

Think about it. Jesus is the Center of the Message that the Gospel brings. Jesus is the Bread of Life that spreads multitudes of manna to empty hands. Amen.

~”Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”~John 6:35, New International Version~

Jesus is the Cup of Your portion that brings you healing, if you choose to drink from His Cup. If you drink from His cup, you get a wellspring of life that never ends. Amen.

Do you want a cup or do you want the Cup that ultimately satisfies? The choice is yours, although He freely gives of His Himself to you, dear reader.

Dear reader: Do you see past the tidal waves? Are you willing to walk on water with faith and trust that they won’t hurt you?

His will is for you to know Him. Walk on water. Keep your focus on His gaze and the tidal waves won’t even hurt you. Amen.

~”I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 3:14, New International Version~

Amen: Once you see God as He is and open up yourself and the blinders from the veil that keep you from seeing the Truth, then you have Jesus.

‚ÄúLet not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father‚Äôs house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”~John 14:1-4, English Standard Version~

Jesus wants you. All of you, dear reader. Are you ready to prepare yourself a home for the habitation of His Holy Spirit within you?

Dear reader: Open up your heart. Open up your mind. Choose to surrender. 

As for me, my will is to do His will, in the Name of Jesus Christ. It is yours too, dear reader? 

Dear reader: Stay encouraged and press on. God bless you!

I Am Free Indeed, in the Name of Jesus Christ

20190101_215158

Thank You God. Thank You God for saving me, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

You may be wondering why I tell God, “Thank You!” It is because His Holy Spirit delivered me on New Year’s Eve 2018 up until New Year’s Day 2019.

~”The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”~2 Corinthians 10:4, New International Version~

For several years, I had been dealing with a mental stronghold. It is not my place to share what that mental stronghold was, but by the power of the Holy Spirit of God, the blood of Jesus Christ, and the mighty hands of Jehovah God, I am NOW free. I am free from this mental stronghold and it no longer holds me captive, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

By the stripes of the blood of Christ, I am free. By the wounds of Jesus, I am healed. My transgressions are forgiven and I am free. The, “old Sarah,” is in the past. The, “new Sarah,” has come into creation. I have given birth to goodness and mercy. Goodness and mercy are my double portion, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I am NOT condemned. I am free for whom MY DELIVERER has set me free is free indeed. I am free indeed, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”~John 8:36, New International Version~

~”But he¬†was¬†wounded for our transgressions,¬†he was¬†bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace¬†was¬†upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”~Isaiah 53:5, King James Version~

~”Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.~Psalm 23:6, English Standard Version~

~”There is¬†therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”~Romans 8:1, King James Version~

I took a leap of faith and went to the, “One Night with the King,” event at the end of December 2018. As the Holy Spirit of God was leading me, I did not feel led to tell anyone at first that I was going to the, “One Night with the King,” service because of the amount of persecution that I would have received before going to the service. I kept this a secret: between God the Father and myself, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I prayed and prayed and prayed and asked God, “Why LORD?” God told me to trust Him and go by faith and have no fear, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

And now, I write this blog post in order to testify of God’s goodness and mercy. I praise Him, in Jesus’ Name. I pray that this blog post blesses you and encourages you, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

At the services, I felt the power of the Holy Ghost rain latter rain and fire on me. I felt a new me emerging and my old self being disarmed. I FINALLY died to myself and the old me was crucified. I received healing and deliverance and I now have peace of God.

~”For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”~Philippians 1:21, New International Version~

I have been crucified in Christ, in the Name of Jesus Christ. The new has come and the old has gone. It is finished, in the Name of Jesus Christ. By His blood, I am healed.

~”I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”~Galatians 2:20, New International Version~

~”This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”~2 Corinthians 5:17, New Living Translation~

It was at the end of December and leading up to the New Year 2019 that God set me free. And by His goodness, I celebrated. On January 1, 2019, I celebrated and thanked for God for removing this mental stronghold from my life. I thanked God for going before me and sending His angels to move mountains on my behalf. Thank You God, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”He said to them, ‚ÄúBecause of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‚ÄėMove from here to there,‚Äô and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.‚ÄĚ~Matthew 17:20, English Standard Version~

I have more love. I have more power. And most importantly, I have a sound mind, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I am restored by the blood and stripes of Jesus Christ. By HIS STRIPES, I am healed.

2019 is going to be a different year. I believe this because every word from God never fails. I am a new creation in Christ. I walk in positivity and rebuke every word of negativity, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Negativity shall not have a portion over my life. I walk in the goodness and mercy that my Heavenly Father gave me and intended for me to walk, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For no word from God will ever fail.”~Luke 1:37, New International Version~

I am received by Jehovah God. Immanuel is MY ALL, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

And that is why I thank God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. God bless you, dear reader. Thank you for reading my testimony!

~”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”~2 Timothy 1:7, King James Version~

Walk on Water, in the Name of Jesus Christ

49082488_2265682736789114_7236353709972652032_o

Are you on the path of holiness? Are you on paths of righteousness, in the Name of Jesus Christ? Are you being led by the Holy Spirit of God to walk on the waters for His Name’s sake?

I can certainly say that while I am not perfect that I am holy because I strive towards holiness every day. I want to be holy like Christ. This is because I want to remain One with Christ just as Jesus and the Father are One, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”~1 Peter 1:16, New International Version~

For many months, I had been planning to come to Apostle David E. Taylor’s event, “One Night with the King,” in Michigan. This is because I was trusting, and praying, and believing in God for my miracle.

For the past several months, I faced spiritual warfare prior to coming to the event. Most of the spiritual warfare included financial limitations and lies from the enemy, Satan himself. 

Satan tried to convince me that I will not get my miracle. As I prayed, I was able to shut the mouth of the devil, in Jesus’ Name, and step out on faith and come to Michigan. I came to Michigan from Georgia by taking a leap of faith. It was by faith and not what was in front of me (the financial limitations and lies from Satan) that I was able to come to Michigan. I am here now, in the Name of Jesus Christ!….And ALL by His grace!¬†

~”for we walk by faith, not by sight.”~2 Corinthians 5:7, English Standard Version~

¬†I bought a plane ticket for this event the VERY last minute (like one month before the dates of the event—–November). I prayed. And prayed. And even called the prayer line for the ministry that is hosting the even (Joshua Media Ministries) MANY times. I even fasted during my long days at work during lunch.¬†

~”But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”~Matthew 6:17-18, New International Version~

My sacrifice unto the LORD God in prayer and fasting was not in vain. He saw my sacrifice as I made myself an offering unto Him, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice–the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.”~Romans 12:1, New Living Translation~

And God will also reward me for the multiple times that I fasted and prayed unto the LORD God in secret. This I know to be true because it says so in His Word.

~”That your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”~Matthew 6:18, English Standard Version~

So now it is that I am in Michigan. I return to Georgia at the beginning of the new year in 2019. I can’t wait to see the miracle that the LORD gives me at the, “One Night With the King,” event and to meet Apostle David E. Taylor! God is so good!! I praise Him right now that His Holy Spirit got me here, in the Name of Jesus Christ!¬†

I now want to pray for you, dear reader. What miracle are you hoping that the LORD will give you at the end of 2018? Let us pray!:

Dear God,

I want to thank You for your Son, Jesus Christ, I thank You that He died and shed His blood for each and every reader, who is reading this blog post. Thank You, O LORD God, for the miracle that You have predestined for each reader to receive. I pray that each reader will take a leap of faith that is ONLY found in Jesus Christ to receive their miracle. I pray that each reader will be blessed by the close of 2018 and that he or she will come enter into his or her Promised Land of miracles Spirit-filled with your goodness and your mercy. You are a good, good Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ. May each reader also walk on water like Peter did in the Bible when Jesus wanted him to trust in Him. I pray that every reader will have faith the size of a mustard seed so that he or she will know for sure that he or she will receive his or her miracle. I give you all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

God bless you! ‚̧

The Inn of my Heart is Reserved for my Prince of Peace, in the Name of Jesus Christ

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

Dear reader: When you think of  Jesus Christ, what do you think of? Do you think of Him as the King of Kings? Do you think of Him as the LORD of LORDs? 

What other names come into your mind when you think of Jesus? For me, He is my Prince of Peace, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”~Isaiah 9:6, New Living Translation~

One of the reasons I call Jesus my Prince of Peace is because of the promise that He made to His disciples: He told them, “My peace I give you!”

~”Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”~John 14:27, New International Version~

The peace that Jesus Christ gave to His disciples was a gift from Him to them. He wanted them to have peace in Him. He wanted them to have peace through the Holy Spirit. They wanted them to have peace with Father God, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Peace in Jesus Christ allows me to cast all of my anxieties away. Peace in Jesus Christ allows me to fix my gaze on heavenly things. Peace in Jesus Christ allows me to have peace of God as I bow down the my Prince of Peace, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”~Philippians 2:10, 11, New Living Translation~

I bow down to my Prince of Peace. I love my Prince of Peace. I surrender all of my Prince of Peace, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

I let my Prince of Peace rule over my life. I let Him come in. I let Him enter into my heart, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

The inn of my heart is reserved for my Prince of Peace, in the Name of Jesus Christ. That is because there is room for Jesus to enter into the inn of my heart. I let Him come.

~”Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 4:6-7, New International Version~

As I let Him come in, anxiety flees. As I let Him come in, anger ceases. The war of my flesh gives into the Prince of Peace as I yield to His direction for my life.

And it is everyday that I die to myself and surrender all of my Prince of Peace. Do you?

Let us pray:

 

Dear God,
Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank You that You sent Jesus Christ to die for me on the cross of Calvary. Thank You that He is my Prince of Peace. I pray that every reader will trust in Jesus Christ to be their Prince of Peace today. I pray that they will surrender to the leading of Your Holy Spirit. I pray that they will develop such a love for Your Son, Jesus Christ, that they will call Him their Prince of Peace. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

God bless you, dear reader!
