His Heart is My Heart And Your Heart, in the Name of Jesus Christ

I pray to God. I praise God. I thank God.

This is what I do. Every. Single. Day. I pray, praise, and thank God for the overflow of goodness and mercy that is overflowing in my life right now. The LORD God has definitely allowed for my faith to be tested and tried. Right now, it is refined gold.

~”These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold–though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.~1 Peter 1:7, New Living Translation~

I pray to God to supply for my needs. Whether it is a financial need, health wise, or for something as big as going on a missions trip to Africa (I am trusting God to provide for this great financial need),  I ask, seek, and knock on the door of God so that He can provide for my needs in Christ Jesus Alone.

I fear many things. I fear the unknown, I fear rejection, but I also fear change. Yes. That’s right. Change. Change is one thing that I fear because it allows the Holy Spirit of God to challenge me to come out of my comfort zone and pray more. And even fast. My needs cannot be supplied without much prayer and further fasting. That is how the gates of Heaven open upon the earth and whatever I bind loose where I am now is what will be loosed to me from Heaven above.

~”He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”~Matthew 17:20, New International Version~

I pray for the will of God to be done in my life. I pray for my family and friends around me to know the unknown God that is in Jesus Christ. I desire for the desires of the heart of the LORD God Almighty to become my desires. His Heart is my heart, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

~”Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.~Psalm 37:4, English Standard Version~

As I pray, I then praise God. I praise Him for making my heart into His heart. I praise Him for taking me into His hands and taking out anything that is not of Him from my life. I praise God for making me into a woman filled with the agape love of Jesus Christ.

I praise God in the sunshine. I praise God in the rain. I praise God in the smiles. And I praise God in the tears. It is in such a time as this that I learn to be content in every circumstance.

~” I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”~Philippians 4:11-12, New International Version~

I know what it is like to starve. I know what it is like to stand outside in the rain and let it drench on me without a roof over my head. I know what it is to have friends. I know what it is to have no friends……..and it is in such a time as this that I trust God.

I now thank God. I thank Him for the good memories made with friends and even the seasonal friends throughout the years. I thank God for the times that He allowed for me to love on them in that season. And now. The Love of God goes on and on, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

And it is with the strength of God that I press forward, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Let us pray!:

Dear God,

I thank You for the good times. I praise You for the bad times. I pray that every reader who is reading this blog post will experience the love of God through the hands of Christ. Allow each reader to experience what agape love is like so that when the appointed time comes for each reader to witness who Jesus is, then others will come to know Jesus too. Allow for each reader to come to peace with You as they make peace with themselves. Give each reader understanding as to what it means to be content with their lives so that they can share the same contentment of Jesus Christ with others locally and across the globe. Thank You for the readers who took the time to read this blog post. May the words of this blog post free any readers from anxiety and other fears that are not of You, O King Jesus Almighty. Give these readers Your unconditional agape love today. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

God bless you! ❤

The Road Less Traveled is the Way, in the Name of Jesus Christ

This is the day that the Lord has made, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

What day is this, you may ask me? This is the day of rejoicing to God! This is a day of glory! This is a day of praise!

~”This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”~Psalm 118:24, English Standard Version~

I thank God for healing! I thank God for my family! I thank God for my friends! I thank God for my community! I thank God for deliverance! I thank God for all of the good that He has done in my life, in the Name of Jesus Christ!

Even though there have been moments of which I have stumbled and walked the road more traveled (which is the harder way instead of walking in the Way which is His will for my life!), I have learned the ultimate lesson as I approach the end of this chapter and begin a new chapter in my life: walk the road less traveled because that road is the Way to see and experience Jesus face-to-face and from glory to glory.

~”Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”~Matthew 7:13-14, New International Version~

As I enter into this new dimension of glory, I see the hands of God destroying a tapestry and making a new one.

Yes. A new tapestry. This new thing that God is allowing me to give birth to is ministry. Yes. Ministry. The ONE THING that I have been pleading for the angels of God to message God in Heaven. To begin ministry.

I must admit, I am multi-faceted. God has gifted me in many areas. I am a news editor for Atlanta Christian Voice, studying for my second Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University, work full-time at a daycare, and am even doing something that may surprise you later (I will talk more about this in a future blog post).

And these are the reasons why I praise God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. It is because He is doing a NEW WORK in me and it is being woven into my new tapestry of art. Watch and see with your own eyes the hands of God painting for me a new beginning. The canvas is a painting of my new life. The canvas is a new me. A new self. I die to my old self. I die to my old ways. For the former way of things is past.

For such a time is this. I begin a new work. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus.

His love is great. I enter into the love of Jesus Christ which is His will of my life. It is His will for the ministry, calling, and anointing, that He has put on my life. O so great is the love of God as I let these words of Scripture purify me in the blood of Jesus:

~”If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffereddoes not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”~1 Corinthians 13, New American Standard Bible~

And it is in this moment that the unconditional love of Jesus Christ becomes a part of the ministry that God meant for me to walk in. Yes, even as I partake in this special anointing, I becoming unconditionally loving towards my family. I become unconditionally loving towards my friends. I become unconditionally loving towards everyone around me because God is love. I finally meet the world where they are at with humility as I cry out to Jesus on my knees in prayer and fasting. 

~”And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”~Mark 9:29, King James Version~

I must confess that before I wrote this blog post that I did not know how important it is to pray for others. I pray for myself and others, but what I pray to God through intercession as His Holy Spirit leads me is essential for breakthroughs to happen. I must intercede as the Holy Spirit of God is my Helper.

~”In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”~Romans 8:26-27, New International Version~

The grace of God is good. The grace of God sustains me. It is all a part of His great love and plan for my life. I walk in the Esther anointing now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, for such a time is this.

The appointed time is now! What about you? Are you ready to walk in your anointing, dear reader? Let us pray:

Dear God,

Thank You for testimonies. Thank You that Your grace is enough and that with Your great love that it covers each reader reader today. May each reader experience the grace of God and give birth to his or her calling that Your hands have blessed upon each reader’s life. Allow them to go from valley to mountaintop and from mountaintop to valley or wherever that the reader is in this appointed time of life and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in ministry. Do not let any principalities or spiritual forces of darkness hinder any of these readers from walking in their calling or ministry today. May the blood of Jesus Christ wash away any impure thing from the hands of these readers today so that they can walk pure, healed, freed, and delivered from sin and shame. Empower each reader by Your Holy Spirit to receive and walk in Your Promises of Scripture today. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise today.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

God bless you!
