Change Is Headed Your Way. Can You See It Now?

Change is headed your way. Can you see it coming?  Look for it.

(Several weeks ago when the Lord first spoke these words to my heart, they gave me hope especially considering the horrific events of these past few months: hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes. And now this week a mass shooting of  innocents. We all need hope that only He can give. Find a quiet spot, let Him speak to your heart because if you’re like me, you could use some inner peace right now. First, quiet your inner thoughts, then listen for His voice to calm your stress. Allow Him to touch you and fill you with His overwhelming love.) 

More of His words to my heart:

My child, I enjoy creating sudden changes in order to bring hope and joy into each life. Do you remember the words of your earthly Dad, “It’s amazing how quickly things can change?”  Also, “Things can turn around for good just as quickly as they can for bad.”  Do you remember these words spoke by your husband? Yes Lord, I do. Dad was talking about how gloomy the sky looked, but then after a few minutes the sky was blue, with the sun shining and clouds floating by. My husband said these words after several hours of figuring our finances. He was talking about our debt. 

My child, I’m in the “changing” business. In fact I specialize in turning people from the mindset of defeat to expecting victory, from discouragement to hopefulness, from debt to prosperity, and from lack to the fullness of My blessings. Not to mention how I can change relationships from estranged to restored, from broken to healed and from cursed to blessed.  Yes, I’m in the changing business. It brings Me pleasure to turn defeat and depression into victory and hope. I turn abandonment into completely restored. My death on the cross restored love to those destined for eternal abandonment to adoption and unconditional acceptance into My family. The Father loves each one, no matter the human flaws. My death brought victory to all those broken without hope.  Lord, what about those sick and suffering?

My child, I give victory to all those who come to Me. Overall, they will have victory over circumstance and victory over death. While I don’t erase struggles, I do indeed grant victory over struggles. Yes My child, in life you will have struggles and suffering, but because of what I suffered you can have victory. I paid the price for victory for all, especially those struggling and suffering now. They will all have victory. As they come to Me I’ll give them the victory I bought with the price of My blood.

Thank you Lord for talking with me.

My child, it’s My pleasure to talk with My children.

Something Good is Going to Happen to You

“Something good is going to happen today, happen your way, happen today. Something good is going to happen today, happen today, happen your way.”

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3 NIV

Lord, forgive my overeating last night. Help me remember to always eat in submission to You. Now Lord, will You lead me to Your will for today?

First of all My child, I’m not here to punish you or beat you up. After all, you do a pretty good job of that yourself. In fact I’m here to set you free, completely free, specifically from all that holds you in bondage, whether it’s caused by yourself, your habits, your weaknesses, others, or their words. Just so you know, you aren’t responsible for their choices or their words that hurt you.

I’m here to fill you with Myself, My power, and My strength. Furthermore you’re going to go forth victorious, not because of who you are, but because of who I am.

I choose who I choose and I choose My children to go forth in My calling. For each one I call, My calling fits just as comfortable shoes and warm fuzzy socks.

When I lay My blanket of love over My children, it’s more than just warmth. It’s a covering of My love and My anointing. I have a mantle for each life, designed for each specific one. This mantle is designed specifically for each one and My assignment for them. With the mantle covering of My love and anointing, each one will go forth in My strength to accomplish My will for their lives.

IMG_2463

 Of course I don’t want My children beaten down in defeat. On the contrary I intend for My children to go forth in victory. Now rise up and go forth. Know I am with you throughout every step you take.

Above all Lord, help me learn, listen, follow, and obey You in all things. Henceforth, help me always seek Your advice about everything I do, say, and even think.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit., a broken and a contrite heart. . .         These O God, You will not despise. Psalm 51:17

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness. Psalm 143:10

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? . . .  Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:31, 3

Don’t Let The Serpent Steal Your Testimony

 

“Don’t let the serpent steal your testimony,” the speaker stated as she stood in front of  listening ladies. She looked at each lady in the group and repeated, “Don’t let the serpent steal your testimony.”

. . . Lord, she doesn’t know me. So how did she know I was struggling with feelings of defeat. How did she know? I sense You’re smiling because You know how she knew.   IMG_2353 Continue reading Don’t Let The Serpent Steal Your Testimony

Rejected by Friends

Lord, I feel so rejected by my friends. What do You want from me?

Your love.  IMG_9670

Lord, I do love You. Thank You for loving me, but I feel so unlovable now. After all I just didn’t measure up to their standards and  I can’t be what they think I should be. To change myself so I fit in their status mold, not mine, makes me feel so uneasy. After all, their mold doesn’t fit me. For instance, it feels like a tight squeezing shoe or a sock that falls down all day. I just didn’t fit in their group, but the rejection hurts.

Lord, Would You Give Me A Word For This Year Of 2016?

The following word was written last January 2016 and never published. It continues as an appropriate word for this new year of 2017. Think I’ll print it and keep it in my Bible.

Last year (2016) I made a lot of bad decisions, lost my focus, and listened to others with their plans for my success. Notice the line written, “If you listen to others, all will be vanity.”  Consequently most of my decisions ended up as vanity. These wrong decisions resulted in unnecessary expenses on my charge card as I tried to buy my way to success which in turn caused an unfair burden on Hubby. I greatly regret this and now my charge card is overweight.

Most importantly, I missed God’s mark for 2016. This is my greatest regret of 2016, missing God’s perfect plan. It seems I had His permissive will, but that’s not the same as His perfect will. This year, 2017, I’m seeking His perfect will. How about you? What are you seeking?

In conclusion I wished I had kept my eyes on Jesus,  who knows what might have been. Check out the word for 2017. More lessons to learn. . . .

21 Victory Antibiotics – Kill the Virus of Temptation

Here’s 21 Victory Antibiotics to kill virus of Christmas goodies temptations. Use these as needed. You have my permission to share or print. Put them on your refrigerator, on the food pantry door, or even in the car if necessary.

IMG_7194-1There’s an abundance of food temptations this month due to our Christmas celebrations. How do you plan to win over these temptations?

IMG_7196

Remember it’s not about the food, but the birth of Jesus Christ we celebrate. When did we get it so messed up? Was it our food addictions? Just thinking about all these goodies make my mouth water. Other people without food/weight issues make food part of their celebration too. So what do you think? If you have an answer, please let me know.

Victory Antibiotics:

 1. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

2.  For everyone born of god is victorious and overcomes the world, and this is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world- our [continuing, persistent] faith [in Jesus the Son of God].  1 John 5:4 AMP

3. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

4. For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the work of Your hands. Psalm 92:4

Victory is the defeat of an enemy or opponent. Victory occurs when we gain success in a struggle against some difficulty or some obstacle that is impeding our paths. It is the state of having triumphed. We can triumph in victory over these food temptations. With God’s power, we can win.

5. Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23

6.  . . . If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20

7. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.     Psalm 32:8

8. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. . . . But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:1, 6

Suppose you stop eating in mid-bite because you realized the food item wasn’t a good choice, that’s victory. If you become full and stop eating even though there’s more left, that’s victory. When you’ve lost the desire for a previously loved food item, so you don’t eat it, that’s major shouting ‘Hallelujah’ victory. Which is more valuable to you, the thrill of victory or excess food?  Victory Blessings

9. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:6

10. You will show me the path of life; in Your Presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11

Surrender to Him, His Presence is the key to victory for He is your victory. Allow God to have total control of your food for He is victory. Remember the child’s song, “Trust and Obey.” Google the lyrics.

11. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37.

You’re more than a conqueror. Yes, you are. Every time you say “No” to excess food, you put a victory notch in your belt. That’s how temptation works for your victory. Choose to give yourself the gift of victory.

12. For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17

13. Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work. John 4:34

14. He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30

15. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20

16. But the Helper, the Holy spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you in all things and bring to your remembrance all things I said to you. John 14:26

17. And being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. Romans 4:21

18. For with God nothing will be impossible. Luke 1:37

19. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36

Try this test for your food: Will eating this allow you to continue your victory walk with peace in your heart or will it bring you guilt? If it brings guilt, don’t eat it. Then rejoice and praise god for your victory.

20. “. . . “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6

Your victories cause Him to sing over you.

21. The Lord your god in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

Now you sing to Him praising Him for your victory. Side benefit, you can’t eat while you’re singing. At least I don’t think so. I know I can’t.  img_7153

Removing Leftovers & More Christmas Shopping, the Easy Way

The refrigerator’s full of Thanksgiving leftovers. I love them. Love all leftovers. You get to enjoy more meals without cooking again. One friend said, “Cook once, enjoy twice or more.” I agree, don’t you?

In the past Thanksgiving leftovers meant binge weekend, especially if Hubby went to work. No witnesses, no crime, right? I used to make a soup out of leftover dressing, then eat one bowl after another until I was sick. What kind of life was that? Can you imagine how all that cornbread dressing swelled up inside a body? It would probably make a good glue, ya think? Continue reading Removing Leftovers & More Christmas Shopping, the Easy Way
