Hey my loves

Pray for us, TaWanna and I love whenupray, yes we do and we love each of you. 

I know that many of you are often inspired by our testimonies, our prayers and blog posts but I would like to ask a favor…

Can you please reply with a prayer or a word of encouragement for us? I don’t want to go into detail but know that we trust God, know that we are more than conquerors and we will understand it better, by and by. But for know, a kind word will go a long way.

When you can’t even Pray

Anybody ever get so busy, so tired, so blah that they don’t read the word, don’t study can’t pray. Yup, me too🙏🏽 Not only can’t read, can’t pray either so you begin to beat yourself up because you know that God’s word is the only thing that can save, that can heal, that can restore and that can redeem. You know this but you’ve gotten tired, your spirit is low and you don’t know where to begin. You know you need to pray and no words come. Yeah, me too.🙋🏽

Do you look at yourself and think, I love God so much, I can’t live my life without him? Do you ever look at what you’ve been through and how you know that you know that you know it was God who brought you out, God who opened the door, God who moved that person out of your life, God who made a way when all was lost? Yet here we are, lost in Christ. 😳

I’m just being transparent this morning, how can it be that I trust God, I really really do, yet I seem to have gotten tired, discouraged and lost  ( that’s the only word that kept coming in my mind) in my prayers? In my fasting? In my spirit?

I don’t know how this has happened so I started where I left off, I opened the word and God in his faithfulness showed me this:

“God already knows our deepest thoughts. And he understands what the Spirit is saying, because the Spirit speaks for his people in the way that agrees with what God wants.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:27‬ ‭ERV‬‬http://bible.com/406/rom.8.27.erv

“Also, the Spirit helps us. We are very weak, but the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit himself speaks to God for us. He begs God for us, speaking to him with feelings too deep for words.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26‬ ‭ERV‬‬http://bible.com/406/rom.8.26.erv

Y’all, A shout goes right here! 🙌🏽 God didn’tgive me a pass, he showed me mercy.  The word of God showed me that he got me, he knows me. 

“Lord, you have tested me, so you know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts from far away. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know everything I do. Lord, you know what I want to say, even before the words leave my mouth. You are all around me—in front of me and behind me. I feel your hand on my shoulder. I am amazed at what you know; it is too much for me to understand. Your Spirit is everywhere I go. I cannot escape your presence.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:1-7‬ ‭ERV‬‬http://bible.com/406/psa.139.1-7.erv
And after reading that, all I can say is Thank you Lord, in Jesus name I Pray, Amen. 

It’s time

I know the God of our salvation is not ignorant to the troubles of the world so he gave us hope!
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.””‭‭John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/jhn.16.33.nkjv
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:18-19, 24-25, 28-29‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/rom.8.18-19,24-25,28-29.nkjv
People of God, we are not to give up hope during this time where they are killing black men. This is the time for us to rise above our daily struggle and strive for something bigger than us. True freedom is when we can all be treated fairly in every situation. As Dr Martin Luther King stated, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  You can stand by but is that smart? If they get away with all these killings you could be the next target. We have to come together, every person, every race, every nationality and every gender, you could be the next target.  We do not need to wait until the death our Father, Brother, Son or Nephew is at our doorstep. 
There is hope for people who believe, 

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”‭‭II Chronicles‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/2ch.7.14.nkjv

We need to pray but we also need to ACT! I don’t have all the answers but I know we have to start holding ourselves accountable.  If we do nothing we are part of the problem , when we could be part of the solution. That includes me!

I’m going to take Liberty with this scripture to make a point. 

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Black male from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?””‭Esther‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬http://bible.com/114/est.4.14.nkjv
