When He Speaks…

images-11

Well, if you read my posts from last week, you would know that I had a rough week. I was being attacked left and right. So on Thursday when I wrote We Are Called To Love Everyone, I thought the drama had ended. Nope, it wasn’t over because He wasn’t finished. That night, I prayed and He impressed on me, I mean IMPRESSED! He wouldn’t let me ignore it. I knew I wasn’t finished with whatever it was He wanted me to do. I knew I had to complete the mission. I knew I had to speak the last offender, the one I hadn’t spoken to yet. I kept asking Him, “What do I say?” I knew He would let me know when and what to say, if anything. I walked into work feeling triumphant, yet curious, all at the same time. I walked by this person’s office about 3 times and He hadn’t pushed me into it, so I knew it wasn’t the time yet. On the 4th time I had to walk passed it, I got that little nudge. I’m searching for what to say but I got nothing. I walked in, she looked at me, I looked at her, and when our eyes met, I instantly knew what the message for her was. I simply walked over to her as she was about to say something, I put my finger to my lips and embraced her. I felt her shutter a bit. I turned and walked away. She came out of her office after awhile and I could tell she had been crying. She came up to me and was about to say something and I said, “No, don’t say a word, there is no need, it’s done, it’s over.” She looked at me and smiled big and said, “Thank you for that Andi.” Can I tell you now that at that moment I felt complete compassion for her and not one ounce of anger that I had felt in the previous days before? Yes! That is what He was wanting me to learn out of all of this.  She had been used by the enemy and I don’t even think she knew it. We can conquer evil with doing good. Just as His word says. He doesn’t lie.

Let me tell you that I had prayed all week, and hard. I am talking overtime, overdrive, 6.4 liter Hemi V8 style prayer….powerful!! I was practically begging for answers from Him. Even though I know we don’t beg Him for anything, I felt desperate.

When it was all over and done, I felt like I could run a mile without breaking a sweat. He is so good and so faithful to us. A simple hug goes a long, long way for someone. It felt fantastic to give her that feeling of comfort. Who knows what she had or has been going through. All I know is that, when He speaks to us, we better listen and finish the assignments that He gives us.

This last week He again confirmed for me that when we’re going through a storm, He is right there with us. He never left me. He never faltered. He held my hand, carried me, let me lean on Him, the whole way through. Talk about the perfect Father that we all share! He is ever faithful and so loving!! I can’t say enough how much I love HIM!!!!! Because I know He loves me.

Be blessed!!!!

 

Out of the Mouths of Babes

My youngest is 10 and loves Jesus! He always tells his older siblings “You need Jesus!” or when he sees something on TV or overhears someone in public he will say, ” They need Jesus!” I am so happy he knows who he needs to seek when things are good and when things are bad. So come on everyone let’s follow Jesus together!

Psalm 127:3-5
 Behold, children are a heritage from theLord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.

He Restores

The above picture is a confirmation of just how God is so faithful to us. My older son, 19, spoke to his father today for the first time since he was 5 years old. See, things happened, I left, we divorced and he chose to stay out of their lives. (My daughter is 22) My son had the hardest time with his father abandoning him and his sister. He was angry pretty much his whole life. He hated me and he blamed me too. Long story short, we’ve made amends because God showed up in our lives.
After the week that I had this status that he posted on his Facebook really made my day. His sister took a screenshot of it and sent it to me. My son then sent me a text and told me all about it and said how happy that it made him feel to have a real conversation with his dad. I was really happy for him. I’ve been asking God to help heal my son’s brokenness and He is. Today He restored a broken relationship between father and son just like He restored a mother and son relationship too. God is so faithful,  so loving, and always right on time!

15 Christian Principles For Dealing With Crisis

Overcoming The Times

I was watching Dr. Charles Stanley’s In Touch Program, one afternoon, and he was speaking on dealing with crisis. Below are 15 biblical principles he offered. They helped me, and I pray that they will help you, also.

1. I must see the crisis the way God wants me to see it Romans 8:28.
2. God is in control of everything. Psalms 103:19
3. Don’t lose heart because you don’t understand why Isaiah 55
4. Don’t make quick judgments when a crisis comes.
5. Focus on God, instead of the crisis.
6. Avoid focusing on the pain.
7. Recall YOUR past CRISISES, and the opportunities that followed them.
8. Don’t respond in anger.
9. Submit yourself to the will of God, regarding the situation.
10. Demonstrate a sense of gratitude.
11. Determine in your life to view the crisis as an opportunity TO GROW.
12. Refuse to listen to unscriptural…

What about LOVE?

Prophet Charles Light

A lot of people are talking about Love this month, But without Forgiveness, Love doesn’t have a door to enter into your heart. The word Forgive is a compound word. FOR, means the purpose of something FOR example, “What did you do that FOR?” what was the Purpose of you doing that.And the word GIVE means Charity which means to give without charging a price. So to FORGIVE is the gift of LOVE. That’s why it’s called Charity. God didn’t charge us for LOVE, so let us Love one another without charge. Therefore Let us FORGIVE one another. So the Love of God can live in our hearts. God forgave us through Jesus Christ so Jesus Christ is God’s Forgiveness to us. Because God so Loved the world that he gave his only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting LIFE. So to believe…
