Let it Go!! Trust!!

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever,
For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.
~ Isaiah 26:3-4

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:6-7

In times where your mind wanders and you feel your thoughts drifting to negativity or areas of darkness and fear, bring them captive to the Lord. Bring them into His presence, surrendering them, and letting God bring you back to His light and peace. Yes, this is a hard process, but the more frequently you do it, the easier it becomes. When you give it all to God, He promises to bring you peace and comfort, to lead you in the path everlasting. That doesn’t mean the pain will go away or the circumstances will change in an instant, but it does mean that God will be with you through them, reminding you that He is bigger than anything you may face, that He is stronger than the challenges, that He knows the direction you must go to achieve His perfection! Let go and let God! All my love, and as you go through your day, may you find your heart and mind focused on the glory and beauty of God!

Inspired Every Day!

I know how to be humbled, and I know also how to abound.
In everything and in all things I have learned the secret
both to be filled and to be hungry,
both to abound and to be in need.
I can do all things through Christ,
who strengthens me.
~ Philippians 4:12-13 ~

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end.
~ Lamentations 3:22 ~

Glory Abounds

Life has ups and downs
Yet the glory of God abounds
No matter the storms that rage
Peace can be found in any stage
Sorrow may come and tears may flow
Hope remains with a new tomorrow
Depression and disappointment may thrive
But through grace I can survive
Life has its ups and downs
But God’s love always surrounds

God’s promise in Christ
A manger with a mission
Peace for all mankind

Christmas time—oh so sweet!!

nativity gift

Christmas is my favorite time of the year!  There seems to be more peace, more camaraderie, more hope and joy as the days creep ever closer to Christmas day.  However, as a society, we often focus on the gifts–what we will give, what we will get, black Friday, cyber Monday, holiday specials, sales, coupons!  The list goes on and on.  Christ has been almost completely removed from Christmas, but not in my heart, nor my home!

Though Christ was not truly born on Christmas day, it is a day we celebrate his birth.  It was his birth that brings hope for a future, meaning to life, and joy midst the pain.  Through his sacrifice on the cross, we are saved when we claim him and fall obediently into his arms.  What a blessing to know that God is there, that he cared enough about us to send his only Son to be our salvation and our light!  What a beautiful thing to behold another human being laying down his life for those he loves!  What a miraculous event to be conceived through the power of God!  So as you trim your tree with decorations and lights, as you put up the evergreen decorations and bring out the Nativity seen….remember Christmas is about what Christ has done for us.  He has given us the most precious, priceless, and valuable gift…ETERNAL LIFE!

All my love and may the joy of the birth of Christ carry you through the days and years to come! ❤

 

Surrender ~ Touch the Sky: Hillsong

Surrender!

In the darkest hour
God’s light shines like a beacon on the shore of life
In moments of despair
God’s peace surrounds like warm calming waves bringing hope
In the times when all seems lost
God’s plan is revealed providing direction and clarity
In the moments when life is falling apart
God’s promises stand true, bringing hope and peace beyond understanding

Rest in His love
Hope in His power
Soar in His strength
Delight in His grace
Trust in His mercy
Believe in His promises

Surrender all you were
Knowing your past does not define who you are or will be
Surrender all you are
Knowing that you will soar only if you fall to your knees before God
Surrender all you have
Knowing that you will never be in need if you seek God first
Surrender all you will be
Knowing that your future is God’s loving, protective, and healing hands

Seek what is true
Hunger for what is noble
Desire what is right
Yearn for what is pure
Pursue what is lovely
Thirst for what is admirable

Never Underestimate the Power within ME!

If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
Never take your own revenge, beloved,
but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written,
“Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
“But if your enemy is hungry, feed him,
And if he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will reap burning coals on his head.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
~ Romans 12:18-21 ~

Roaring lion

Though I am a Christian, that does mean I am perfect
Though I am naive at times, that does not mean I am weak
Though I am a peacekeeper, that does not mean I cannot make war
Though I am forgiving, that does not mean I will let you hurt me
Though I live in this world, that does not mean I am of it
Do not underestimate the POWER of GOD that holds me up!!

For those who have been persecuted
For those who have been accused without proof
For those who have been crushed
For those who have been struck down
For those who have been trodden upon

I stand with you now
Reminding you that YOU have strength beyond measure
YOU have legions of  GOD’s angels to fight the evil that comes against you
YOU CAN do ALL things through CHRIST who gives YOU strength
YOU CAN be ALL that HE calls YOU to be in HIS NAME.

Do not fear
Do not give lead to the lies of Satan
Do not lose hope
For the GOD of the UNIVERSE holds YOU
He will NEVER leave YOU nor FORSAKE you
Stand still under the shadow of HIS wings
Let HIM seek the VENGEANCE of those who hurt you
Let HIM fight the WAR for you knowing HE WILL WIN it every time.

In the end
Every knee will bow
Every tongue confess
Every eye will see
Every heart revealed
Every action judged

Rise above
Rest in the HOPE of the CROSS
Rest in the PEACE that surpasses all UNDERSTANDING
Rest in the ASSURANCE that GOD has your back

All my love and may you know how strong you truly are and how beautiful are the characteristics GOD has graced YOU with despite how the world views them and seeks to devour.  YOU are a child of the ONE TRUE GOD!  YOU are holy, mighty, and righteous in JESUS name ❤

Holding You – Matt Hammitt

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.
“For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30

Life can often be confusing, painful, and filled with chaos, but there is hope, peace, and healing that comes from the One who is always holding you through it all! Even when you are in your darkest hour, God is there. When the pain of life leaves your pillow soaked with tears, God is there. God never leaves you. He will always be there to hold you through the harshest storms of this life. Let go and let Him bring you rest and peace!

All my love ❤

Tied to the Ground ~ Charmaine

The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
Psalm 34:17

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Let Go!!

Consumed with worry
Holding tight to the past
Fearing the future

Let go
Let God

Stuck in the pain
A victim in the game of life
Harboring anger and bitterness

Let go
Let God

Crying out in misery
Actions guided by heartbreak
Words are daggers to the soul

Let go
Let God

Release the burdens
Lighten the millstone that weighs down
Surrender to something bigger

Let go
Let God

Be touched by never-ending grace
Caressed by overflowing love
Filled with constant peace

Let go
Let God
