All is well

I want very much to see you and give you some spiritual gift to make your faith stronger. I mean that I want us to help each other with the faith that we have. Your faith will help me, and my faith will help you. (Romans 1:11, 12 ERV)
The Good News shows how God makes people right with himself. God’s way of making people right begins and ends with faith. As the Scriptures say, “The one who is right with God by faith will live forever.” (Romans 1:17 ERV)
We have been made right with God because of our faith. So we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1 ERV)

Your probably wondering why I provided those scriptures on Faith? Without it, what’s the point. If you are only willing to listen to the negative things in your life you can believe that’s what you will get.

I know it’s easy for people to tell you to wait on The Lord, Pray and ask God for direction, trust in The Lord, and all that and I realize it’s hard to receive that when you don’t trust the sender. People of God we have to be able to tell our story. I’m not saying tell all your secrets but if you always wear the mask or the mime face, how can people know you have lived what your asking them to live? I can tell you that All is Well and hopefully I have been open enough with my struggles that you realize if he was able to make my life well, he will do the same for you. God did not make me well because I’m good, he made me well because Jesus is good! I’m not saying he made my life perfect or that I don’t have struggles I said he made me, Sheveze, well in my soul. No matter what your situation looks like, the end of the story was written at Calvary. So when it looks crazy, remember All is Well..keep saying it ..All is Well, All is Well, All is Well in my soul.
With God’s power working in us, he can do much, much more than anything we can ask or think of. (Ephesians 3:20 ERV)

“But now the Lord my God has given me peace on every side; I have no enemies, and all is well. (1 Kings 5:4 NLT)

Knock knock knock

Dear Father, I am standing here claiming the devil is a liar! He will not rob us in our finances, Lord we know All things work to the good to those that love you and are called according to your purpose! We know that all good and perfect gifts come from you, we know that anything we ask in Jesus name will be given, we know you created the world, it’s financial system, it’s monetary system, you created debt and the money to pay them. You said we lack nothing in you! We are standing on that word Father, we lack nothing! Hallelujah, thank you for being who you said you would be for us. Lord since you have not opened the door to wealth Yet, we are praising you in front of the door, you said knock and it will be opened so we are knocking with praise and worship knowing your deeds will catch up to your word when it’s time. We are standing in agreement on this word Lord, enter in! in Jesus name, Amen.

Girls in Pearls

“Also, God’s kingdom is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. One day he found a very fine pearl. He went and sold everything he had to buy it. (Matthew 13:45, 46 ERV)

The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word pearl has become a metaphor for something very rare, fine, admirable, and valuable.

Your heart and spirit reminds me of how pearls are made. People see pearls as beautiful, perfect gems, but never realize that they actually come from pain–from something sharp or dangerous getting trapped inside an oyster where it doesn’t belong, the oyster makes a pearl to protect itself. Pearls are almost indestructible, you never hear these words “my pearl shattered”, “my pearl fell and broke”, nope they are strong, just like you. Pearls are strung on thread, that may break and just think, if your string breaks you reach down, gather them up and restring it. You may not know the actual order they were in before the string broke but you normally would have reinforcements added so it does not break again. Jesus does the same for us, we don’t break but our string might. We get tired from dealing with things at work, having no work, husbands, being single, things at home, bills, kids, more bills than money, drug addiction, alcoholism, fear and rejection. I could go on and on but I think you get it. Jesus reaches down, grabs all our pearls and restrings us, stronger and rearranged in a way to make us better.
These words from Mary J Blige “Stronger with each tear”, speaks to what I’m thinking.

You’re much more than a struggle that you go through
You’re not defined by your pain, so let it go…
You’re not a victim, you’re more like a winner
And you’re not in defeat, you’re more like a queen

In each tear
there’s a lesson,
Makes you wiser than before
Makes you stronger than you know ,
In each tear Brings you closer to your dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak
Can take away what you’re meant to be!

Waiting on God, you with me?

Lord, I am in deep trouble, so I am calling to you for help. My Lord, listen to me. Listen to my cry for help. Lord, if you punished people for all their sins, no one would be left alive. But you forgive people, so they fear and respect you. I am waiting for the Lord to help me. My soul waits for him. I trust what he says. (Psalms 130:1-5 ERV)

Who’s waiting with me? I know I’m not the only person who trusts God! I see many of you posting scriptures, sharing Preachers stats and word grams of encouragement so I know I’m not alone. I looked at the verse where it says if God punished everyone for their sin no one would be left alive..I would be dead dead dead! Praise God he forgives us. Praise God he loves us. Hallelujah Lord, I praise your name. Lord you are so good, I praise your name. No matter what circumstance I find myself in, you make a way for me to be ok hallelujah!

I bet it gets hard for you to praise God when you know you have not been right, when you answered that call that you just knew was not in your best interest. When you called that number you asked God to heal you from. When you took one more drink, one more hit or one more pill, praise him anyway. Praise him in the middle of it. Praise him and let his love heal you. Every time the enemy tries to remind you of how you messed up, starting crying Jesus in your mind, he has to flee or bend the knee to the holy one. It sounds easy cause it is, the more you do it, the easier it gets. You may never be free from sin but you can reduce the instances by staying vigilant, keep trusting God and kick the devil out your head.

Wait on The Lord, he will always rescue you. Wait on the Lord : be strong, and let thine heart take courage; yea, wait thou on the Lord. (Psalms 27:14 ERV)
