Tonight You Are LOVED.

Child of God, if you feel you’re at the end of your rope, ask The Lord to tie a knot. If you’re torn apart and overflowing with tears, look in the mirror. You’re alive and still here. God saw you through countless other nights that you despised. God is ALL you need. GOD has to be ALL you need.

NOBODY ELSE can save you! NOBODY else WILL save you! NOBODY CAN complete you.

Like Brother Marcus Rogers is preaching, your mate should compliment you.

Nobody and nothing else can have that Sacred place in your heart. That’s for God. There’s places for others, but He is our TRUE and ONLY Rock and our first Love! The Son Of God is our Everything!

Revelation 2:4 “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.”

Hold onto The Lord tonight and every night.

He’s the only one that will ALWAYS be there.

He said He’d never leave us nor forsake us. He means it.

Jesus/Yeshua is The only MAN (The God Man) that will Forever catch EVERY tear you EVER cry.

He’s Perfect.

Don’t set your affections on the things of this world. We’re not here to stay anyways.

No matter how heavy your pain or even how dark the night, it’s temporary!

These light afflictions cannot compare to the glory that awaits us! Heaven is our Home!

Don’t look at what is seen! Be faith-driven, not fear driven. The Righteous are as bold as a lion.

Tonight He’s enough.

In every trial, Jesus/Yeshua is IT for us ❤️

Not just because He has to be or He should be.

He’s enough because we love Him.

He’s enough because He’s proven Himself Faithful and True! He holds the keys to death, Hell, and the grave and because of HIM and what He did for you, there is ABSOLUTE, Complete FREEDOM!

Nobody can love you like The Son Of God.

Hold onto Him.

He’s holding onto you.

He’s holding onto all of us far more than we’ll ever know this side of Heaven.

Amen. Rest well in The Lord, Precious Ones.

I Got Something to Say…

It’s like after 6 a.m. and I’m sitting here sippin on some Cappuccino. On the drive home from the gas station so many thoughts were running through my head. Many emotions too..I shed a few tears as I sang along to some Miranda Lambert and reminisced with some Taylor Swift on my Spotify app. Needless to say I took the long way home…

It’s not like me to revert back to my old ways and musical tastes like I did this morning, but after losing a major spiritual attack after waking up and feeling so defeated, I just didn’t care. I threw it all away. I didn’t know I would mess up today and so early, but God did. I got so much deliverance last night. I just knew that was it. I just knew that the molesting and raping demons were going down forever. I was so excited because the desire to masturbate from their stimulation would be gone completely forever! Not so…yet. Christians (and everybody else) do not engage in watching pornography not matter what. The cost is far too high-especially if you are a Christian, a Child of GOD seeking The Lord. There are demons that can attach themselves to your body and live inside of you. They can be so stubborn to get out as I am finding out. Doing this stuff is a WIDE OPEN DOOR FOR THE DARK SIDE! Not many want to talk about this but it needs to be addressed!

So today God has had mercy on me. Even after blowing it this morning, still yet I began burping and yawning and coughing. These are all manifestations of deliverance. God was delivering me and still kicking demons out despite my actions. I haven’t prayed since.

As I was listening to songs like I Knew You Were Trouble, Red, and Bad Blood, I thought about all of the rejection I experienced in romantic relationships growing up and in early adulthood. It didn’t matter how beautiful I was or how talented. I was always rejected by the men I so desired. Even in the relationships I was involved in, they never lasted too long. NOW it is SO clear to me WHY! Having received all of the revelation this year in my trials I see that we live in a spirit world and all is spiritual. I recognize the mishaps. Most people have heard that God has a plan for your life. Well, the truth is…Satan does too! The kingdom of darkness is always at work in your life as well carrying out assignments against you to suit their purposes and plans against God. Good news tho! That’s what spiritual warfare is for!

All of my romantic entanglements were a part of Satan’s plan against my life to destroy what God had for me/God’s purpose for my life. I believe the enemy can catch a glimpse of the future but only God knows everything. Satan can speculate, I mean, after all he’s been around for a very long time! Whatever happened, I know the enemy was at work. Maybe not in everything. We have been given free will, just know that the kingdom of darkness has plans for your life too. I tell you this in wisdom, not to scare you. I tell you this from experience. There were major assignments against me in my young life with the spirits of rejection, self-hatred, fear, and so much more.

So if you’re going through something like this (you can apply this to everything else too), just know that it’s nothing personal. Remember that these spirits operate in people to get to us…and we war not against flesh and blood. Man, what an awakening this year has been for me!

Seek The Lord in prayer and ask for wisdom. God bless!

Isaiah 41:10  (KJV)

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Don’t Pass This Up!

Hebrews 3:12-19  (KJV)

12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Love & Stuff: Fun facts about love in my world.

I’m trying to do as much posting for Valentine’s Day as I can this month because…its just fun! Only one week away! So I’m going to make a lot of love themed and inspired pieces. I love to be inspired, and there’s nothing more inspiring than love itself! ❤

First of all, I would like to speak my opinion on how people are raising their children with these Disney Princess movies and stories. I think its a bad idea. I was raised on the likes of Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast and so on. All of that mush gave me a very, very false impression of what true love looks like, or how it develops. Not to mention the unrealistic body types of these cartoon women! I’m not saying they’re all bad. Perhaps I am wrong, but that’s how I personally feel about it all. When I have a child someday though I will allow for those movies and stories, I will also be sure that he or she gets the idea of love in the real world. Its not a fairy tale, not always a prince charming, we kiss a few toads, the road is not always perfect!

So, tonight I am listing a bunch of facts about love that pertain to me, and my life experiences. From heartaches to breaking hearts, and all that stuff…We’ll see how this goes! Enjoy!

  • In Kindergarten, at age 5, one of my little boy classmates told the entire class that I was his girlfriend. I wasn’t quite sure what he meant, and got upset. I told the teacher I was sick so my mom would come get me and bring me home from school that day.
  • My biggest crush developed at age 13. I was very infatuated with the lead drummer in our junior high band. This crush lasted for a few years, but I was ultimately over him by Junior year of high school. He was a little ladies man. I asked him to the Homecoming dance Sophomore year, and he later said he just wasn’t going to go. The night of the dance, I was beyond heart broken to see him show up with a girl with quite the reputation. First taste of young heartache.
  • First kiss at 16 in a movie theater: While watching The Princess Diaries, he put his hand on my other cheek and pulled me in, ever so carefully…then dropped the bomb right on my lips. “So, that’s what its really like?” -me.
  • First love @ 16 as well…The sociopath from out of state.
  • Biggest Heartache, at 16, the sociopath. No sex, no luv. What a shock. (Thanks Disney!!!)
  • First true boyfriend & longest teen relationship, 11th grade
  • The fact that Chocolate sends me into a Bipolar Hypo-mania really sucks when Valentine’s day is like the Chocolate holiday!!!
  • Love was never a friend of mine…So much for the ‘fun facts’ part, eh? lol
  • I had no clue how much negativity would be brought up upon discussing myself and the topic of love!!! Wow!
  • On a positive note, I met my husband at 23. Online. We were both living in the same town for different reasons, and hadn’t ever met. The timing was right.
  • Our first phone conversation was 3 hours long.
  • My (then future boyfriend, now hubby) and I greeted with a kiss on our first date, instead of ending with one, Haha…
  • This March is our 5 year Anniversary!!! We’ve had ups and downs like everybody else in the world, but ultimately we are so connected in such a deep, spiritual way, into the core…its more than physical. We couldn’t live without each other. He came into my life at the right time as I was about to be dealt some very difficult cards in life. Not only have we weathered storms together, we have made so many wonderful memories already, and its only been 5 years! I am truly blessed to finally have the one for me, the one I deserved all along.
  • We eloped to Tennessee. We chose not to have a traditional wedding because we just couldn’t wait to start ” forever”!
  • Our song is I’m Yours by Jason Mraz.
  • In my younger days I did break a few hearts myself. Maybe I am included on some of their blog posts? I don’t know…

In concluding this list, I must say that love took on an entirely new meaning, a new feel, when I met my husband. I was respected, cared for, there was a chemistry like I’d never known. I still can’t get enough of him, and he says that about me. Its mutual. Love is not one-sided. A lot of the Disney Princess Movies sort of imply that love is a sure thing, love is forever, and mutual, with the first man in the movie or story. Its not always from point A to B. There are several little mini-points in between in real life for most of us. End rant. LOL

-Goodnight!
