THE LIGHTHOUSE

I pray that you are well and that you have had a joyous holiday.  I thank God you and continue to pray for you daily.

(Psalms 119:105), Your Word is a lamp unto my feet.

(Psalms 27: 1), The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?

(John 8:12), When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Lighthouse - A tall structure topped by a powerful light used as a signal or beacon to aid marine navigation.
Navigate - To record, plan or control the position and course of a ship or aircraft. To follow a planned course on, across, or through.
Hold on now, I'm going somewhere with this.  I just need to set the stage.  If I were to put those two definitions together, I would say that a lighthouse is a large powerful structure used to keep ships on course.  I can also use those definitions to say, "Jesus Christ is a powerful Light that can keep us on course or guide us to follow the plan that He has for us; before we were born.
If I were to describe how my life used to be without Jesus Christ navigating me through the windstorms of my life, I would say that I was lost at sea.  I could not see His beacon of ling to put my life back on the planned course.  I couldn't see His powerful Light that eventually guided me through my drug addiction.  I couldn't see the Lord holding back the raging sea of physical abuse (that could have killed me) so that I could passed safely through the waters.
I have seen movies where a ship was lost at sea, and it was too dark for the captain to tell how far it was for them to reach land and suddenly there is a powerful beacon of light shining bright enough to navigate the captain to the dock.
Woman of God, when you are going through difficult times and your circumstances seem too dark to bare; trust the Lord to navigate, and keep watch over you.  He will guide you to the Light (Himself) safely.  Just because you don't see the Light doesn't mean that He is not there.  Maybe you need to change your course and follow the Lord's  plan.  Maybe you are at the point where the Lord is telling you to stay on course, but you can't see Him.  The Lord's message for you today is to stay on course, follow His plan for your life and you will see His powerful Light that is navigating your through the dark seas.  You see, Jesus Christ's Light is stronger than your darkness.  Amen!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to be my Light.  My prayer today, Father is that you continue to be my guiding Light.  Everywhere my footstep travel You Lord are with me.  I thank you Lord that through the rough seas of my life, You are with me.  I know Lord that you will never leave nor forsake me through my darkest hours.  I love you Lord, I pray Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit that I walk in a Spirit of Peace right now, in Jesus Name, Amen.
Don't forget to sign up for the 2nd Annual Women's Conference in Chicago, the first week in June.  I know that it seems far away but planning to hold a nice event takes a lot of time.  I want everyone to be comfortable so the renting of the space is very important.  Also you can purchase a copy of my book, "Mighty Woman of God", for less than $10 at www.amazon.com.  Thank you and be blessed.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH FOR WOMEN MINISTRY

Hello, Mighty Woman of God!

I am so excited to say that as of January 1, 2014, "Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry", has been in existence for 2 years.  I cannot believe that from the Lord giving me instructions to start a blog, that a women's ministry would be birthed.  The ministry has grown from 10 to over 150 in that time.

I would like to that all of you ladies, my friends, my daughters and my sisters in Christ Jesus, for allowing me to come into your lives and homes.  Without you, there would be no ministry.  You have supported me and keep me doing what the Lord wanted me to do.  I have gotten to know some of you through personal prayer, praying on the phone, or just sending a message of encouragement and hope.  I pray that you have found that I have been truthful and open through my blogs.  I pray that you have been encouraged and comforted and have been given hope to you.  And as promised, I have never spread your business on Facebook.

Now in the upcoming year, the Lord is going to do a new thing within the daily blogs.  How many of you believe that God wants you free in every area of your life?  I will still be using the scriptures in the bible as a guide.  But God wants you to be perfected in your marriage, finances, children, etc. I don't claim to be an expert in any of those subjects but I will just tell you what worked for me.

Again, thank you for being a part of "Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry".  I hope to see a lot of you in June for the 2nd Annual Women's Conference.  This is a FREE event, just sign up as soon as possible.  Also, you can purchase a copy of my book, "Mighty Woman of God" at www.amazon.com for less than $10.

God bless you all, I am so excited to see what God has in store for this ministry.  I love you with the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.  God bless you.

IT IS WHAT IT IS

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I speak blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ over your and your family and may the Lord continue to walk with you as you seek after Him.
 
(Isaiah 55:8-11), For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord.  As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.  As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth:  It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
 
This morning, while in my prayer time I had some questions for the Lord regarding the assignment that He gave to me two days ago.  I am a Prophetess of the Lord so you would like that I would be able to recognize and hear the Lord clearly but sometimes I do ask for confirmation.  I don't tell the Lord how to go about giving me a clear understand, I just wait.  Anyway, as I prayed about the message for today, the Lord gave me the scripture for today.  And as I began typing the scripture, I got my answer, my confirmation given to me in the WORD of GOD, the BIBLE!  I am going to use me as an example of what the Lord is telling us today.
 
God told me that I put Him in a box when it comes to Him blessing me with everything that He has for me.  Now, keep in mind that God's riches and blessings doesn't necessarily mean that I will get a lot of money, not at all.  There are so many other aspects of my life that I need to be blessed.  But my problem is not fully trusting in God.  I do have faith that if God said it, He will do it.  Sometimes we know in our heart that God can bless us with our needs and wants, our problems is will He do it, not can He do it.  Sometimes we put God in a box, without even realizing it, even the most seasoned woman of God can make that mistake.
 
Often times we put ourselves in a box when it comes to the things of God.  We know that He can do exceedingly and above all that we can ever think, but will He do it for you.  When we ourselves are in a box, we also put God in a box.  In this world, we often look at our situation or circumstances as the world does; not with our spiritual eye.  Sometimes we say to ourselves, "It is what it is".  Meaning we tend to accept things the way they are because other people, places, or things are controlling what we think is the best thing.  Let's put it this way, we accept the doctor's bad report.  We accept the fact that the computer says our credit is too bad to get a house or other things.  We accept the fact that we are in a bad and toxic relationship because we don't see ourselves as doing any better.  The term, "It is what it is", should not be said uttered out of your mouth if you have faith in God.  "It is what it is", should be rephrased to say, "It is, what God says it is".
 
Mighty woman of God, study the above scripture because God has an answer for you, just like He had a confirmation for myself.  Your answer is in that scripture.  I don't know who it is but God says, "Study that scripture, my daughter".
 
Heavenly Father, I thank and praise You for Your word on today.  Father, I pray that Your forgive me for not trusting fully in You and Lord the times when I start to limit You, I pray that You continue to speak to my heart.  And Lord that you are a light unto my feet and I thank You for Your Spirit that You gave to me to teach me in all of Your ways.  Lord I thank You for not getting in that box with me and remaining me that Your thoughts are far greater than anything I can ever think of and Your ways are not man's way.  In Jesus name, Amen!

GOD'S ALREADY THERE!

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I speak blessings upon you and your family on today and may the peace of God lighten any load that you may have today.
 
If you would like to support "Spiritual Growth for Women Ministry", you can purchase a copy of "Mighty Woman of God" at www.amazon.com for less than $10.  Thank you and God bless you.
 
The Lord gave me a revelation on today's message.  It is definitely a blessing for me, because the message was for me.  I just had to listen and allow the Lord to tie the scriptures together for me.  So I will do the same for you.
 
(Exodus 14:13-14, Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid.  Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today.  The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.  The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.
 
(Exodus 14:19-20), Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel's army, withdrew and went behind them.  The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel.  Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.
 
The Israelites had not knowledge about the God that Moses served.  In fact, Moses didn't clearly understand God either.  But the more that Moses followed God's instructions and actually saw God miracles, he began to understand, know and have a close relationship with God.  He also realized that the God he served was much more powerful that any man. 
 
In Exodus 14: 10-12, the Israelites began complaining to Moses that the Egyptian army was close behind them and they felt that Moses' God lead them to their death.  The were at the point where they felt that they should have stayed slaves to the Egyptians.  They wanted to be free but they were unwilling to listen to the commands of God.
 
Read the first scriptures above, God is saying to you "Don't be afraid of what you see or what you may encounter along the way".  STAND FIRM and you will see God do some miraculous things in your life.  The same God that Moses served is the same God today.  Also God is saying to you, "He will fight your battles and the issues, deliverance and health problems that you have today, you will have no more".  The people that are mistreating you and laughing behind your back will be no more".  Don't complain and think that God is not moving on your behalf.
 
The Holy Spirit gave me this for me and you about the next scriptures, Exodus 14:19-20.  We cannot see the angel of the Lord that is right in front of us.  So we try to do God's work for Him.  There was an angel of the Lord that was leading the Israelites the whole time.  There was a pillar of cloud also with them to keep them out of darkness and keep the light shining over them.  As the enemy got closer, the angels of God, got instructions from God to move and go behind the Israelites to keep the enemy at a safe distance for them.  They didn't even notice the angel or the cloud that was with them.
 
God says, "Even though you don't see Him right in front of you, just believe and know that He is.  Even though it may seem as though the enemy is closing in on you, God has an angel right in place to continue to give you His light, and keep the enemy in back of you.  Even though you don't see how your situation can get any better, the Spirit of the Living God is going before you and will always be your guide".
 
This is the scripture that the Holy Spirit gave me to pray for us today. This scripture also ties into the above scripture.  (Psalms 119:105-112).
 
Heavenly Father, You word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.  I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.  I have suffered much; preserve my life, O Lord, according to Your word.  Accept, O Lord, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws.  Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law.  The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts.  Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.  My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.  In Jesus name, Amen!

TURN-UPS

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I speak blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior over you and your household.  And that you prosper spiritually and physically as you follow after Him.
 
(Matthew 7:1-5) Do not judge, or you too will be judged.  For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.  Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your sister's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your sister's eye.
 
TURN-UPS, no I didn't misspell the word.  What are "turn-ups" you ask?  Well, to some of you, it's not a good message if the Holy Spirit begins to tug at you.  But all messages are always out of love.
 
"Turn-ups" are people who turn up their noses at other people, like they ain't never been through nothing themselves.  "Turn-ups" are people that forgot they weren't born saved and even if they were they still have sinned. "Turn-ups" are the type of people that have nothing else to do all day but to continuously watch you and wait for you to mess up.
 
I don't need anyone around me that has not been in the dirt at some point in their lives.  I don't need anyone around me that act like they don't experience having marital problems.  They act like for the 15 years they have been married, they have never said anything or done anything wrong to their spouse.  I don't need anyone around me that will "turn-up" their nose if I ask for prayer because I deal with depression or panic attacks.  I don't need anyone around me that will "turn-up" their nose if they see me drink a glass of wine in a restaurant.  Or maybe heard me say something that won't be pleasing to God.  I don't need anyone around me that will try to make me feel any less of an Evangelist or Prophet of God, because they heard me get loud with someone.  I don't need anyone around me that I can't talk to in secret and then tell someone else.  People don't put themselves upon a pedestal because of a title in front of their names, you try to put people there.  And if they don't live up to your expectations, you become a "turn-up".
 
What I do need is someone that will have no problems, saying, "you know you are wrong", and still mean it out of love.  I do need someone around me that can say, "I've been where you are, things will get better".  I do need someone around me that will say, "I have trouble in that area of my life too".  I do need someone around me that will say, "Let's pray, right now", not I'll call you later, or I will put in a good word for you.  What I do need is someone that knows I'm going through some things without even telling them, because they are in tune with not only me, but God.
 
If you have read my bio attached with my blog or have read the back of my book, you will notice that I am not at all shamed of the life that I came from.  Just don't you act like you haven't came from some place too.  Cause if you are a "turn-up" Christian you are still in denial and a huge target for the enemy to use.  So the next time you think about  "turning-up" your nose and laughing at someone else in need, think back over your life, some of you don't have to think back to far.  To be a fly on the wall in your house will reveal that you are still dealing with some things too.
 
I think that one of the reasons why people are so judgmental of others is so the focus will be off of them and their bad behavior.  You try to justify your bad behavior by saying, "Nobody's perfect".  You think that's an excuse.  But you won't extend that "nobody's perfect" gesture to the one that you constantly "turn-up" your nose at.
 
I heard a saying one time that goes a little bit like this:  You don't have to call your best friend when you are in trouble, because she is right there with you.
 
Heavenly Father, I pray that You forgive me of all my sins.  Not just the ones that I am willing to say aloud but even the ones that are on my heart and mind.  Forgive me Father if I have not been a good steward over the friendships that You have blessed me with.  Father I pray that You create in me a clean heart and a right spirit, of one that You can use.  I realize that You cannot use me, if I am speaking and acting unpleasing to You.  I love You Lord and I want to be forgiven of all my sins, in Jesus name, Amen.

A GREAT GESTURE

Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I speak the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ over you and your household.
 
"Mighty Woman of God", is on sale now at www.amazon.com.  The price is less than $10 so you can get two, give a blessing to a friend.
 
This is one of my OUCH messages, but I do believe that if more Christians admit where they need more of or less of we would be able to let our light shine so that we can draw more people to Christ Jesus.
 
Prayer, Praise, Worship, Reverence.  Sometimes we do these things and think that God should be please with us.  When in fact, some of us think that God owes us something because we are giving Him a "great gesture".  Some of us have the attitude of, "Lord, I read my bible scripture this morning.  And I said three thank you Jesus' this morning, so where is my reward?  Where is my blessing?"
 
A "great gesture" is when we hold the door open for someone that has their hands full.  A "great gesture" is when we offer to give a dollar to the person in the store, that doesn't have enough to pay for their grocery bill.  A "great gesture" is when we give our neighbor a cup of milk or sugar.  With all these "great gestures", that we might do for someone we get a thank you from them.  Some of us put Jesus Christ in those categories and we expect Him to say, "thank you to us".  We forget that God doesn't owe us anything, nothing, NO THING.  And yet we have the nerve to expect whatever it is that we want Him to do for us, because we gave Him a "great gesture" for the day.
 
When God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ to be beaten beyond recognition, it was not just a "great gesture".  It was not a "great gesture" when God had to watch His Son, Jesus Christ, get nailed to a cross for our sins.  It was not a "great gesture" when Jesus cried out to God the Father, saying, "It is finished".  So pleased don't think that God owes us anything, because we decide to give Him our little three minutes of prayer, praise, worship or reverence.  Three minutes is not considered adoration, humility, love, companionship, it's a "great gesture".  If all that you have time to do, is to give God a "great gesture", keep it, don't waste your time.  God does not need your "great gesture".  Amen.
 
Heavenly Father, I thank You for my life on today.  I know that you have all power and that I did not even deserve to have your sunlight wake me up this morning.  Father, please forgive me for my sins, the ugly things I do and the things that I have in my heart and mind that does not bring glory to Your name.  Father, I want to have a closer relationship with you.  I don't want to my prayer to be considered a great gesture, teach me Lord how to be a good steward over the time that you give me, so that I can give You more time in my day.  I love you Lord, and I pray that Your create in me a clean heart and mind so that I can worship You in a spirit of truth, in Jesus name, Amen.

THE THIN LINE

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I speak the Lord's blessings over you on today.  Peace, joy and love during this holiday season!
 
"Mighty Woman of God is on sale now at www.amazon.com for less than $10, a perfect gift for a friend.  Thank you for your support.
 
God is so awesome in His wisdom.  The Lord's parable to you today is concerning your spirituality.  He has blessed me with this message for myself and I want to share the message with you.
 
Once we decide to not only accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God and invite Him into our hearts and our lives; we should not stop there.  Meaning at least giving it our best shot of trying to live right; we step over an imaginary line.
 
Now I want you to visualize what I am saying, with your spiritual caps on.  Imagine you stepping over an imaginary line and immediately stopping once both of your feet are planting over that line.  Imagine standing at a place where you could easily step either your right or left foot backwards, with the line in between your right and left foot. 
 
God's says, "The longer you stay in a position where you are on the border of stepping backwards into your old ways, old habits and old ways of thinking; you are in trouble spiritually.  You are putting yourself and your spirituality in jeopardy.  Yes, you have stepped over the line of your past but you must not stay there or stop there.  The enemy is constantly going to and fro seeking whom he can devour and because you have stepped over that line; he is angry.  If you stay where you are you will not have any bargaining room.  Meaning, if you slip up and fall slightly backwards you will end up on the wrong side of the line.
 
One of the ways that you can make sure that you keep moving forward; once you have crossed that line is to stay in constant contact with the Lord.  If you stay barely over that Satan knows that all he has to do is send small fiery darts your way.  Those small fiery darts can come in any type of form.  For instance, abusive boyfriend, drinking, drugs, bad for you friends, etc.  Even though you know in your heart that you are better off with God in your sight and Satan in your rear view, your flesh is still fighting with your heart.  Constant prayer, worship and praise will strengthen your heart and allow you to get pass your flesh making all your decisions.  PRAISE GOD!
 
Heavenly Father, I thank and praise You for Your Son that died for me.  Jesus Christ died so that I can live and live a victorious life over Satan.  Father, my prayer today is that you give me the strength that I need to keep moving forward.  I don't want to stay where I am, my hearts desire is to keep moving forward with all of your best in my heart.  I thank you Lord that even though I may fall back you won't let me go as long as I keep you in my sight.  Thank you Father for your love in Jesus name, Amen!

CIRCLE OF LIFE

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
 
Reminder: "Mighty Woman of God", is available for purchase for less than $10 at www.amazon.com.  Bless someone with a great gift.
 
CIRCLES OF LIFE - YOU WILL KEEP GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES UNTIL YOU CHANGE DIRECTIONS, CHANGE YOUR COURSE OR BREAK FREE!
 
The other day, I was enjoying one of my favorite movies.  As a writer, I am always on duty, and I am always looking for the next message from the Lord, with pen in hand.  I get a lot of these catchy titles from the Lord and what to write to enable the people of God to grasp what God is showing them or the point that He wants to get across.
 
Anyway, in the movie, there is a scene that the Lord had me to focus on.  He said, "That is what many of my people are doing this very day.  Okay, so let me set the scene for you.  This man was in the Sanity Ward of a Turkish prison.  He was not as insane as everyone else in that ward but he was getting there.  And the longer he remained there, the more he began to look and act like the others.
 
There was a pole in the center of this room and about 20 of the insane prisoner would just walk around this pole going clockwise.  All day long, they walked in a clockwise motion around the pole. They never spoke and they never changed directions.  The new guy finally decided that he was going to try to change the direction that they were walking.  He got in that circle and started walking in the opposite direction.  They didn't pay him any attention, they stayed on course.  At one point, he even tried to physically turn them around, but they just didn't get it.
 
Today God says to you, "I am trying to turn you around but you just don't get it.  You keep going around and around in circles.  You just don't get it."  You put God in a box when you have the mindset that you have always done things like this or like that.  God wants you to change course, change the directions that you are going, because you are headed for a big fall.  If you do not change your ways you will only have gone around in circles, ending up in the same position (state of mind) that you started, when you first got saved.  If you don't change course, you will began to look and act just like the Christians that only remember that they are saved on Sundays.
 
Some of you repeat the same prayer (repetitive prayer almost like you have it written down on a piece of paper.  You sing the same songs and say to yourself, I've been doing it this way all my life, why change now?  Why do something new?  You want God to do something new in your life, but you keep God in a box.  CHANGE COURSE MY SISTER, CHANGE COURSE!
 
Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me enough to speak to my heart today.  Father, I pray that you forgive me for my sins in the name of Jesus.  Father, I realize that I have not changed since the day that I first received you as my Lord and Savior and I am praying now Father that you help me to change the course and direction that my life is going.  Father, I do not want to remain in the same state, day after day.  My desire is that I get to know you more intimately through prayer and worship.  Today Lord, I am changing direction to move in the way that you need me to move, in Jesus name, Amen!

GET IN LINE

Hello, my daughters and sister's in Christ Jesus.  Today I pray that you not only read the message, but that you are blessed as you strive to run this Christian race, whole-hardly.
 
I got such a revelation from the Lord today.  You know me, I have to set the scene for you.
 
Sometimes we can be in such a hurry for God to bless us that we make the wrong decisions concerning our lives.  One of two things keeps us away from the promises of God.  (1): we are tired of waiting on God, (2), we don't trust God's Word.
 
A lot of times we tell people that we are praying for this or that to happen.  You say to yourself or your friends, "I'm waiting on God to makes some changes in my life so that I can move forward in my life.  Now, there is nothing wrong with that, except we are looking at our waiting time all wrong. 
 
What do you mean Evangelist?  Glad you asked.  You can have a close relationship with God and you pray everyday.  That's great!  But a lot of you are asking for something from God that you already have the ability to receive, but you got out of line.  Some of you are waiting on God, but God is waiting for you.

Imagine yourself at the grocery store and your line doesn't seem to be moving.  "You first thought is why your line isn't moving, and then you begin to look around to find a shorter line.  In the midst of all your waiting, you keep moving from line to line, hoping that you will find a shorter line.  Eventually you might just put the one or two things that are in your basket back and leave the store.
 
Woman of God, my message to you today is "GET IN LINE".  God is saying, He has everything lined up for you, and all you have to do, is to "GET IN LINE and STAY IN LINE".  Just like at the grocery store, somebody else's line looks better than ours.  So we forget about God's line because we think that it is taking too lone.  We end up in the friend, boyfriend, alcohol, or blunt line.  If you are impatient or think that you are running out of time, you will not line up with God and therefore you will miss the mark.  Just like that line at the grocery store, we think that God is not moving fast enough so we give up our spot in line, hoping that another cashier will open up another line.  Some times we can be on the edge of getting that blessing and then we get out of line.
 
Make up in your mind that you are going to stay in your line, stay in your lane as if your life depends on it.  And trust me, you life does depend on it.   BE BLESSED!
 
ON SALE NOW! "Mighty Woman of God", is on sale now.  My second book, this one is a great price, less than $10 at www.amazon.com.  Thank you for your support.  God bless you!

PEER PRESSURE

Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!
I speak blessings of peace and joy upon your lives.  I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored and that the ministry has been a blessing to you.
 
(1 Corinthians 15:58), Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Christians deal with a lot of peer pressure.  Once you have decided to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ, your friends and family that are not saved, will always try to pressure you into doing the same old things.  They don't want you to try to change.  For some reason, being a Christian can be intimidating to people that are not Christians.  Peer pressure comes in because just like your friends don't want you to change your life, neither does Satan.  He will use your peers to try to keep you in darkness and keep you from getting delivered from things that you need to give up in order to live righteous before the Lord.  Christians deal with a lot of peer pressure because the enemy knows that he just lost a soul and Jesus Christ has gained another sheep.
 
Sometimes we tend to try to play both sides of the fence.  When want to keep our friends that we know we should not hang around, and we want to praise and worship the Lord.  It's very difficult to play both sides of the fence.  I tried it and it doesn't work.  What will happen is that the greater spirit will eventually win your soul.  If you are having difficulty dealing with peer pressure, keep going to church.  Keep your bible even closer because the enemy will try to use people to keep you from fulfilling God's purpose for your life.  Your peers don't even know that the enemy is using them to keep you from reaching your destiny in Christ.  If you are dealing with peer pressure, pray that the Lord God will put people in your life that will be able to keep you lifted up and will accept your decision to become a Christian.  Pray that God will lead you to the right people that will be able to make positive deposits in your life and not withdraws.
 
We all have experienced peer pressure once we got saved.  Once you become a Christian, your desire is to change, that is why you made the choice to be a Christian, but the change can be difficult if you don't have the right type of people around you.  You still want to hang out at the club with your friends, but on the other hand you want to do what is right before God.  You don't want them to start talking about you behind your back, but if they do it because you have decided to be a Christian, then the truth of the matter is that they always did talk behind your back.  Now they just talk about something different.  If you are hanging around people that prefer that you to stay the same way, that's peer pressure.
 
Once I decided to give my life fully to the Lord, I mean make a decision to stop partying, doing drugs and drinking the peers in my life changed.  God gave me some new friends.  God gave me a new dance and song in my heart.  I never looked down on people, I just knew what I wanted for my life and that was to fulfill God's purpose for me.  I wanted a change, my peers didn't want me to change because they thought that I thought that I was better than them.  I never gave them a thought at all.  If you are dealing with peer pressure, I understand.  I also understand how hard it is to give up your old nature.  It's like turning in your old wardrobe for new clothes.  You don't know how they are going to look when you put them on, but you know that you want a change.  God bless you.

Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!

I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of the Lord on today.  The Lord has a great message for us today.  Thanks for reading.

(Ephesians 3:16-19), I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.  And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
 One day at a time!  That's the Lord's message for you today.  I think about the times that I spent in church services or classes and I was often reminded of the numerous of sins that are not of God.  No sin is of God.  You sit and listen to the pastor's message and you are moved by the words but deep in the back of your mind, you know that the sin that he is preaching about, is something that you are still struggling with.  While you are in church and are being convicted of a particular sin or sins in your life, it is the Holy Spirit that is tugging on your inner being.  It does not mean that He is mad at you, the Spirit of the Lord is trying deliver you and help you keep your deliverance or obtain deliverance from Him.  The pastor might be the one that lay hands on you, but without the anointing of the Holy Spirit you will not be delivered.

Woman of God, I want to encourage you today, to take one thing at a time.  If you are trying to deal  with everything that is going wrong in your life all at one time, this can be a very tremendous burden to you and you will feel defeated before you have even begun.  Start with the little things and work your way up.  Some people get offended at church because the Holy Spirit tugged at their spirit and they don't want to go back in fear that they have not released all the sin in their life.  It doesn't work that way.  The more you hear the Word of God, He gives you power and strength to overcome battles and temptations in your life.  The more rooted in Christ Jesus the more power you will have to defeat the enemy 

Might I suggest that you make a list of the worldly things that you do or the things that you know are not pleasing to the Lord and pray over them.  Ask the Lord Jesus for deliverance in those areas of your life and the power to stay delivered.  You don't have to tell anyone about your list.  It's between you and the Lord Jesus.  There may come a time when you are about to do or say something that is on your list and you will hear the Holy Spirit say, "don't do that, or don't say that".  The more obedient that you are to that tugging in your inner being, the more victorious you will become and powerful to the glory of God.  Once the Lord sees that you are at least willing to try to become more like Him, He will move mountains on your behalf.  God is so compassionate and patient.  The Lord God wants you to be free from sin, and if you want the same thing, then you and God are now working together.  It's better to work with the Lord than to work without Him.  It's better to walk with Jesus, than to walk alone.

I still have a list that the I am believing the Spirit of the Lord Jesus is working.  Every time I think that I have something beat, another sin replaces that one.  I stay prayerful and I always acknowledge the fact that I am undone in certain areas of my life.  I am honest with the Lord and I have often said, "Lord, that one is a hard one for me to overcome, or Lord, I've been doing it this way all my life".  I am not above correction from the Lord.  There have also been times that I just didn't make it and then I have to ask for God's forgiveness and start all over again.  One more important thing God wants you to remember is that no one is above sin.  Never let anyone make you think that you are not worthly of the love of God.  If you begin to feel that way, you will make excuses as to why you can't go to church and the enemy will have you exactly where he wants you, feeling unworthly and defeated.  A spirit of defeat always leaves the door open for the spirit of depression.

One thing at a time, ladies.  One thing at a time!  GOD BLESS YOU!

THE TWINS - GRACE AND MERCY

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that you have the peace of God in your heart on today and that you will honor Him in everything that you do or even with your heart.
 
Vines Complete Expository Dictionary: Grace - In modern Hebrew seems to stress the stronger meaning of "to pardon or to show mercy."  The word occurs around 80 times in Hebrew Old Testament.
 
Mercy - "to have compassion, be merciful, pity.
 
Matthew: 11:28-30), Then Jesus said, "Come unto me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light."
 
Today I get to talk about me and you.  And prayerfully, the Spirit of the Lord will guide you.  While in my prayer time I was listening to a song, that basically says, "God's mercy kept me, so I wouldn't let go, I am here today because His mercy kept me so I wouldn't let go."  I don't know if you know that song but as I played it, I begin to look back over my life.  With everything within me, I have to thank God for His mercy.
 
Now, I am not suicidal at all, but going through physical, mental and drug abuse, I almost let go.  I almost let go of God's hand.  There were times in my life that I did consider just leaving this earth but as I looked at my children, I knew that I couldn't just leave.  I have thought that I was so horrible and my life was going far from God, so why am I here?  The more I tried to make my life work, the more Satan tried to stop me.  My late 20's and early 30's was very heavy for me.  I was very weary and tired.  I didn't read one of my bibles so I didn't know or understood anything about God's mercy and His grace.  I did not know that I should begin praying that the Lord will give me rest.  I didn't know that for the spirit of heaviness, start praising the Lord.
 
Woman of God, there will be some circumstances that you might face that will make you say, "Why me Lord".  Think about the Lord's grace that He has given to you.  Think about how merciful the Lord is to you.  I know that there has been times when you can see the Lord working your situation out for your good.  But know that just because you can't see that your situation will work out in your favor, know that the Lord is still with you.  The Lord does not want you to live a life of despair and hopelessness.  The Lord wants you to get up and take a stand that you will not let any event in your life cause you to be uncertain that He is with you.
 
My children are and blessing to me, because without them, I would have kept walking in despair.  Even though you may face times that causes you to flood your face with tears, it's okay, just get back up.  When you feel like you cannot make it any further and you feel like your life is hopeless, remember the twins:  God's GRACE and MERCY!
 
Heavenly Father, I pray that your word will go forth and comfort those that may be dealing with a crisis.  Touch them Father and restore them back to You.  I pray that those that are facing circumstances that they feel like they can't make it any further, touch their heart Lord and remind them that you are Merciful and you won't put more of them than they can handle.  May you bless those that think they cannot handle anymore speak to their heart Lord.  I pray that they praise you no matter what they are facing, in Jesus name Amen.

O TASTE AND SEE . . . .

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of the Lord, Jesus Christ!

(Psalms 34:8, 17, 18), Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him, (17) The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.  (18) The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

I want you all to know that I truly have love for each of you in my heart.  It is not because I want or need something from you and did not start this ministry because I want to gain favor from anyone.  This ministry is for you because God told me to start a women's ministry for HIM and YOU!  There has been times that I wanted to quit but I think about even the few that may be blessed by the Lord's messages.

God has given me today's message because it is weighing heavy on my heart.  When things weigh heavy on my heart, it is because I have been where you are or I just plain on love you and want what God wants for you and that is to be free from anything that the devil is trying to kill your spirit with.

Bitterness:  When you taste something that is bitter, you can recognize the taste right away.  Usually you will make an ugly frown or just keep wetting your tongue to quickly get that bitter taste out of your mouth.  If someone ask you how does something taste, and you say, "bitter", that usually means that whatever it is does not taste good, unless you just like bitter things.  People don't usually go out and buy something that taste bitter because they like the taste of bitter food.  So, the term "bitter", is never really a good term when describing something.  A bitter taste is never something that will make you smile, even if you like the taste of bitterness, your initial reaction will not be a smile.

Now let's go to bitterness when it comes to things or issues of our spirit.  I have spoken to someone that is about 55 years old and whenever she spoke to me, she spoke about an incident that happened to her as a child that she had to endure.  Even though I have spoken with her about three times, I still do not know her.  The first time we spoke, it was more or less an introduction and she spoke about the incident.  The second and third time, the same thing.  I realized that I had to open up my spiritual ears because I noticed that she was bitter about the situation.  Then I began to pray and ask God, to tell me what to do to help her.  She is a strong woman of God so I don't know what to do but because my spiritual antennas where up, my spirit began to cry out for her.  Each time that I had spoken with her, she made it a point to tell me that she had forgiven those men that treated her so badly.

The first thing that I want you to know is that having a spirit of bitterness does not mean that you are a bad person.  We are human and sometimes the issues of our childhood taste so bad that we don't have enough love to swallow it, we don't know how.  We are Godly women, but that one thing has become a thorn in our side.  What the devil does with that thorn is keep reminding us of that situation over and over again.  And if the devil can keep us talking about it over and over again, we then become very bitter.  Each time that we taste that unforgiven pill we get a bitter taste in our mouth and frown.  When that thought or name passes through our heart or mouth, we will ultimately frown then we might try to smile a little bit.  We may even go to classes and seminars to break free from that bitterness but to no avail, we are still bitter.  Because we love Christ so much and we have other aspects of our lives down-packed, we don't want to admit that we are still bitter about being mistreated, beat up, raped and abused.

Just to let you know that although this ministry has been birthed by God, through me.  Let me just say that again, BY GOD, through me, I still have some growing and learning to do and after several years, I just swallow my bitter pill, even though I thought that I had already done that.  I went to a women's breakfast, and I had no idea what I was really getting in to.  I thought that we were going to talk about a book on "Forgiveness", but for some reason the Holy Spirit set us all up.  It was not until about 5 months ago that I realized that although, I may have said that I forgave someone, I had not, because every time that persons name would hit the atmosphere, my spirit cringed.  No one can see your spirit cringe but God.  That is why I am giving this message today.  God knows that your spirit still cringes, and He wants you to taste and see that He is good.  He wants to remind you that He hears your unspoken cries and He knows that you are brokenhearted and He wants you free.  The only way that we can truly be free, is to admit our true feelings.  Not the feelings that we show on the outside, the ones that are hidden in our heart.  My prayer is that you are not 55 years old and still bitter.  I love you and I hope this is a blessed message for those of you that need to be free.

Heavenly Father, I thank and praise you for your grace and mercy towards me.  Father, I thank you for your word that I have hidden in my heart and that you are a loving Father towards me.  Lord Jesus, I cannot do this one on my own, I am asking that your Spirit comfort me and get me through the bitterness that I am still feeling towards ____________, Holy Spirit, I am asking you to do what I cannot do for myself.  I have tried Lord Jesus and I know that you love me unconditionally and your desire is for me to be free from the spirit of bitterness.  I love you Lord with all of my heart and I want what is best for me and I know that you want what is best for me, in Jesus name, Amen.

ROCKS AND SAND

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of our Lord, Jesus Christ!  I have an excuse for being absent. LOL!  I just finished my second book, titled, "Mighty Woman of God".  It is definitely a blessing and I am so excited about it.  If you have been blessed by the daily blogs, you will be blessed by this book.
 
(Matthew 7:24-27) Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man.  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

In this parable, Jesus is not speaking about an actual building; he is speaking about your physical body.  Christ is saying if you build yourself up in Him, when the winds blow and the floods seems to overtake you; you will be able to stand.  If you place a handful of sand on top of a rock, when the wind and floods hit that rock, the sand will blow away; but the rock will still be intact without any signs of destruction.  Jesus Christ desires for you to be built up in Him just like that rock so that you are able to stay intact during the storms in your life.

Woman of God, be determined to have a house that is built upon a rock and not sand.  If you are the type of person that does not allow yourself time to read the Word of God or have daily prayer; most likely you are sand.  The enemy knows that you are sand and therefore, it is easy to disrupt your life.  As soon as an unforeseen incident happens, just like sand upon a rock you are blown away.  You end up making rash decisions that will not get you out of your storm.  Your foundation is not strong enough because you have a house built on sand.  If you don’t have enough of the Spirit of the Lord in your physical body, you are considered sand to the enemy.

If you are the type of person that takes the time to study the Word of God and pray regularly, you have developed a rock mentality.  When the enemy comes to disrupt your life, you are not easily blown away by his tactics or lies.  You know the blessings and promises that God has for you and you will have a strong determination to live your spiritual journey in the will of God.  When you are faced with adversities and tragedies you will know without a doubt, that God has already handled it for you.  Jesus did not say to Peter, "Upon this sand, I will build my house".  Jesus' words to Peter were, "Upon this rock, I will build my house".

In order to be productive during your spiritual journey called life; you will have to have a solid rock-like mentality and foundation.   The foundation has to be the very essence of your being, what you are made of on the inside.  Time is running short for the devil and his demonic spirits so you cannot afford to be blown all over the place.   You have to take a firm position concerning your spirituality and your relationship with Jesus Christ.  Your children are depending on you to give them guidance and wisdom to get them through their spiritual journey.  They will need a rock foundation and mentality.  Sand will only have them blown out into a valley of nowhere.  Pray for your children, daily.  Pray with them and speak blessing upon their lives.  They may be too young to understand what you are praying about but in the times to come, when they are older, they will understand.  You will develop a type of faith that the Lord will see and He will not have forgotten the prayers that you prayed over your children.  PRAISE GOD!

DROP YOUR ANCHOR

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  I pray that you all feel blessed and highly favored of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  The first step is feeling blessed now you have to walk in it.
 
I always try to be as open and honest with you through these blogs and even a post on Facebook.  So with that being said, I want to tell you what the Lord said to me the other day.  I usually tell people that I always have something to say when the Lord tells me to do something.  I have sort of made a joke about it, because I say, "Well, the Lord knows that I will do whatever He asks of me, after I am through complaining and asking Him to send someone else. 
 
Anyway, this is what the Lord said to me, "Why are you so disobedient?  You are doing exactly what you tell your son not to do to you.  When you tell him to do something, he has something negative to say to you, although he will do it  because you are his parent.  What do you think about you always saying something negative first to when I command you to do something?  You do not want your son to be disobedient, you call it talking back, well, I call it talking back.  You have done this since you have be called to be a blessing to other women.  Although you will respond with Yes, you talk back to me.  How do you think that I feel?  What makes you think that you have the right to say anything but Yes, Lord to me?  I will know longer allow you to talk back to me.  It is time for you to grow up you no longer have the luxury of talking back before you do what I say to do. You would move a little faster if you don't waste time, wondering why.  I love you, but you have to move when I say move.  It's time.
 
The reason why I am telling you about that conversation is because a lot of times people tend to think that ministers have some sort of secret powers.  You forget that we are only people that said yes to the calling on our lives.  I am a prophet of the Lord, but I too still make mistakes and every now and then the Lord will give me an OUCH message.
 
(Matthew 14:25-32), About three o'clock in the morning, Jesus came to them, walking on the water.  When the disciples saw him, they screamed in terror, thinking he was a ghost.  But Jesus spoke to them at once.  "It's all right," he said. "I am here!  Don't be afraid".  Then Peter called to him, "Lord, if it's really you, tell me to come to you by walking on water.  All right, come," Jesus said.  So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus.  But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink.  "Save me, Lord", he shouted.  Instantly Jesus reached out, "You don't have much faith," Jesus said.  "Why did you doubt me?"  And when they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped.
 
Today's message is quite different.  As I began typing the scriptures, the Spirit of the Lord told me not to write a message to go with those scriptures.  The Spirit of the Lord says that there are a number of women that will need just those scriptures to get by today.  To be reminded that I AM God!
 
Heavenly Father, I thank you for Your word on today.  I thank you for your words of comfort and that I am blessed by your word.  Father, I also pray that you will restore me and strengthen my relationship with you. I pray dear Lord that as I read your word that I will not just read the scriptures, but that I have all faith to believe and trust in You.  Lord Jesus, just as you were with Peter as he walked towards you, I pray that you are with me also as I walk towards you and you will calm the storms in my live today and that I won't be afraid when you bid me to come closer.  I thank you Lord for hearing my prayer, in Jesus name, Amen!

WHO ARE YOU FOLLOWING?


Good morning, mighty woman of God!  I speak blessings of peace, love and joy upon your life and may you prosper as you follow after Jesus Christ.
 
(1 John 2:27), But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

 Since we've all seen the Wizard of Oz, I want you to put on your spiritual cap and “ease on down the road” with me.  When Dorothy finally reaches her destination, the Land of Oz, she realizes that the great and powerful Wizard is a phony.  For some reason no one in the entire town of Oz ever met the great Wizard but they followed him and his laws.  They sang and danced all about the great and powerful Wizard.

Let’s suppose that you are Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz is the minister or pastor of your church.  You have put all your faith in him to show you the way to Jesus Christ.  You eventually discover that he has been putting up a front for the Land of Oz (the congregation).  He has been stealing the building funds, instead of counseling he’s committing adultery, and leading you down a yellow brick road to nowhere.  You are disappointed and lost because you put your faith in the creation, not the Creator. 

Here’s my story:  I was helping out a friend with the birth of their new ministry.  I knew the Word of God and had been practicing to live by the laws of God’s Word.  I studied my bible daily and through my time of praise and worship with the Lord, I developed a relationship with Him.  Although I had those aspects under my belt, I got stuck in the wrong ministry.  I saw all the warning signs but I compromised what I knew to be true and righteous when it came to what the bible says about leaders in the church.  I got caught up in all the hoopla and fa├žade that was put on in the church and found myself following after the creation and not the Creator.  My punishment for doing so was more than I could have ever imagined.  I could not blame anyone but myself because I should have done what I knew to be righteous according to the Word of God.  I lost sight of the Creator and held on to the creation.

There are certain characteristics and requirements which are written in the bible that explains in detail how a pastor or leaders in the church should act before starting a ministry.  (Titus 1:6-8), An elder must be blameless, the husband of but one wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient.  Since an overseer is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless, not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.  Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.

The Lord God wants you to know two important things: (1) God is the only one that you should be following.  If the pastor/minister is not following the Word of God, then you should not be following them.  You have an obligation to yourself to study the Word of God and follow the right path to Christ. (2) You have the power to get to Jesus Christ yourself.  You have the owner’s manual, it’s called the bible.  It does not take the great OZ (pastor/minister) to get you there.  Jesus says, “Knock and the door shall be opened to you, seek and you shall find. 

I don't care how great and powerful you think your pastor is, he is not God and therefore he is imperfect.  When you put your pastor on a pedestal of perfection, you could possibility be setting yourself up for a big fall.  People tend to forget that their pastor does make mistakes.  When your pastor makes a mistake it is only because he is a man, not God.  Your pastor should only be a guide to you through your spiritual journey.  The bible says, "study to show thyself approved."

A lot of women tend to get hurt in their church because they have forgotten the fundamentals of the Word of God and decided to follow after the creation instead of the Creator.  We are emotional creatures and sometimes we tend to follow our hearts and not what we know to be true and righteous.

Your pastor is not going to be standing beside with you when you are called home by the Lord Jesus Christ.  You have to be accountable for your own actions.  Don’t be like Dorothy, looking for something that does not exist or finding out that you have wasted your time sitting under a ministry that has only a form of godliness.  PRAISE GOD!

CHARITY = LOVE

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that you are all blessed by the Lord's message for you today.
 
(1 Cor. 14:3-8), Even if I dole out all that I have (to the poor in providing) food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or (in order that I might glory), but have not love (God's love in me), I gain nothing.  Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.  It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude and does not act unbecomingly.  Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own right or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it (it pays no attention to a suffer wrong).  It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.  Love bears up anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, it hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything (with weakening).
 
Wow, what a message.  Yesterday I mentioned how the Holy Spirit that teaches us all things use scriptural references to comfort and encourage us even in today's time.  Although we are not living in the times of the biblical days, the Spirit of the Lord will teach us how to live according to the principles of the bible, today.  I want to talk about two different relationships that we engage ourselves in (marriage and friendships).
 
I'll start with friendships.  Most of us will not have a huge circle of friends.  You may have a circle of associates but not friends.  I have one friend and I don't mind that at all.  A true and real friend of over 25 years.  We have watched each others kids grow up as well as watching each other grow.  The type of love that Paul is writing about is called (Godly love).  What is Godly love?  It's simple, its written in the above scriptures.  If you have people around you that do not produce the same type of love that Paul has written about then you are wasting valuable time and energy with them.  Your friend should not be envious of you when you grown in Christ and prosper because of Christ.  Your friend should not be boastful about themselves or what they have.  Your friend does not bring up past hurts or wrongdoings.  Your friend should not be conceited or be able to forgive.  If you have a friend that meets those scriptural qualities then you will be blessed.
 
Marriage seems to be lacking most of those qualities.  I will definitely say that I am sometimes guilty of taking account of evil done. Meaning I am not too quick to forgive of pass offences.  The bibles states that we are to pay not attention to wrong done to us in the past.  So I have a little bit more work to do in that department of (Godly love).  Believe it or not, sometimes I am not patient and sometimes I am not kind to my husband.  I spit out things on my tongue that I know to be wrong, so I need a lot of work in that department.  You see there is nothing wrong with admitting that you need help or growth in certain areas of your life.  The problem and the wrongdoing is pretending like you got it all together and you have wings . 
 
Ladies, before you think about marriage or getting into a long-term relationship to prepare for marriage, read Paul's message to the saints in Corinth.  If your husband or significant other does not even try to possess those biblical qualities, maybe it's time for you to rethink your relationship with him.  Things are not going to just get better with God and Godly principles.  You can love all you want, cry all you want, beg all you want, but that will still not bring love (Godly love) into your relationship if you are not at least trying to find a man that at least has the potential to posses those characteristics.  Women always make the biggest mistakes when looking for our future husband and that is trying to fit him in our world, instead of seeing if he fits into God's world.  Some of us have picked a man like opening a box full of thousands of broken pieces and expect to put him together the way that we want, instead of realizes that we picked a box that has missing pieces (Godly love).  No matter what you do you can never influence someone to posses (Godly love).
 
Choose your friends and husbands according to Paul's teaching on charity (love).  All spiritual gifts will eventually fade away but love (charity) will never fade away.  AMEN!

ESCALATORS

Good morning, Mighty woman of God!  I speak blessings of peace in your life and that you will walk under the guidance of the Spirit of the Lord, Jesus Christ.  May you prosper as you follow after Him.
(Psalms 119:105), Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalms 119:106), Amplified, I have sworn (an oath) and have confirmed it, that I will keep your righteous ordinances (hearing, receiving loving and obeying them.
I love the Word of God.  I love the fact that the Holy Spirit has a way of bringing the scriptures to light even in today's time.  Even though our circumstances and situations may change from day to day, the Holy Word of God does not.
The other day the Holy Spirit gave me a parable about escalators.  Now you have to put on your spiritual caps and just envision this message.  Do you remember the first time you got on an escalator?  Were you afraid that the stairs would suck you right in?  Imagine being a child and your father is holding your hand before getting on the escalators.  You have  never been on an escalator before, but you are watching the stairs go way up in the sky.  It seems as though the stairs are just disappearing and re-appearing right before your eyes.  You don't want to express to your father that you are afraid to get on the escalator, so you begin to hold his hands a little bit tighter.  You  don't fully understand how to get on and how to get off the escalator.  But you do notice that the stairs are disappearing and going somewhere that you cannot see.  You think to yourself that if you don't get off in time you will be sucked in and you don't know where you will end up.  So you trust your father to guide you on and off the stairs.
Woman of God, our Christian life is somewhat like those escalator stairs.  The moment that we become a Christian we are excited.  It's just something about knowing that Jesus Christ is your Lord and your Salvation.  It's just something about knowing that Jesus will be with you everyday.  As you ride up to the top of the escalator you are trusting your father that he will help you once you get to the top.  As soon as you get to the top, just before the escalator stairs disappear, your father says JUMP!  And you jump.  Now, I know that you are following what I am saying, because if you think about the times that you get on an escalators with your child; when you get to the top, you say jump and they jump.
After awhile your child gets used to riding the escalator because they realize that they won't get sucked in to nowhere.  They have learned how to get on and off of the escalator ride.  It may take a couple of rides to get it down-packed but eventually they are even excited about the ride.
God wants you to get excited about your spiritual ride with Him as your Heavenly Father.  God wants you to live just like a child that gets on an escalator holding their fathers hand all the way to the top.  God wants you to allow Him to guide your footsteps all the way to the top.  God wants you to trust Him to get you through any anxieties that you may have today.  Trust Him to tell you will to JUMP.  And when your Heavenly Father says, "JUMP", you are leaping over your adversary (the devil).  You are jumping into your blessing from your Heavenly Father.  You are jumping over that mountain in your way.  You are jumping right into your spiritual gifts.  AMEN!
Before you know it, the month of May will be gone and it'll be time for the FREE 2015 Women's Day Event. Mark your calendars for 6/6 1P-3P, 11250 Ada, Clubhouse. If you have been waiting on the Lord God for spiritual gifts, you need to be there. God is stirring up the gifts that are within us. Come on out for an Upper Room experience. FREE . . . FREE . . . fellowship, refreshments. God bless you.

TWO FACED

Good morning, Mighty Woman of God!  I pray that you are blessed and that you will walk in the grace of God. Be kind to everyone you meet, you never know when an angel is in your presence.
 
(Revelation 3:15-16), I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
 
Back in the day, when I was growing up, people would say, "She's two-faced".  Being called 'two-faced', was definitely words that will start a fight.  The term 'two-faced' meant that one minute you are friends with one person and the next minute you are talking about them behind their backs to another friend.  That always cause a fight.
 
Some of us suffer from "schizophrenia".  We act one way when we are in church and another way when we are at home or work.  We put on our big Christian smile and act like our life revolves around Christ only when we are around our sister's in Christ.  Are you walking and talking with God in front of church people?  Monday - Saturday, you are dancing with the devil and then on Sunday you put up a front in church.  But the moment we leave that church building we get in our cars, turn up the porno on the radio music, curse at the person that cut us off in a lane, yell at our kids, curse out the person in Burger King because you ask for no onions.  On Monday, we go to work and act a complete fool.  Your co-workers have no idea that you are a Christian or even attend church.  We only go to church on Sundays thinking that we are washing our sins away from the week.  And get ready to continuing sinning the rest of the week.  We act like we are doing God a favor by going to church.
 
Some of us play the role of a saint very well around others, but you cannot fool God.  Some of us have literally missed our calling for a Hollywood movie because we are such great actresses around people that don't know us.  In fact, Hollywood ain't got nothing on you, nor the role that you play daily.  The term, "fake it til you make it", is not going to work with God.
 
I once suffered from schizophrenia.  Monday-Saturday, I did smoke weed, cocaine and drank tequila and on Sunday I wen to church. Right after church I continue with my routine of drinking and doing drugs.  So I am not writing to you about something that I have not struggled with myself.  The reason why I am not still suffering from schizophrenia is because I kept attending church.  Eventually, the Spirit of the Lord won the battle over that spirit of addiction.
 
If you are struggling with some things and your hearts desire is to one day appear righteous before the Lord, He is deliver you.  But if you have decide to keep playing the "two-faced" game, you are not fooling anyone but yourself.
 
Think about your behavior.  Are you just a Christian on Sunday?  Will God call you two-faced?  It's time for you to pick a side.  PRAISE GOD!
