Jesus is our everything!

Lord…

Help us love on others as long as life lasts,
Help us not become spiritually dull,
Help us be strong in our faith,
Help us endure hardships.
Help us stay on the narrow road.
Help us make wise decisions.
Help us be humble and merciful.

We will keep on doing what is good and never give up.

We will honor the harvest of Your blessings, Lord.

We humbly come to you and ask for guidance, wisdom and discernment as we proceed with our daily journey.

Jesus is our everything!

Thank You for preparing us to be better equipped. We want to be faithful servants in Your Kingdom, Jesus, one day at a time!

Your Spirit gives us LIFE and joy.

In Jesus’ name we courageously pray and boldly praise, Amen

Wait Expectantly!

Psalm 5: 1-3

Listen, God! Please, pay attention!
Can you make sense of these ramblings,
my groans and cries?
King-God, I need your help.
Every morning
you’ll hear me at it again.
Every morning
I lay out the pieces of my life
on your altar
and watch for fire to descend.

A New Creation

““Do not remember the former things, Or ponder the things of the past. Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it was will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:18-19‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The Lord Answers Our Prayers

“But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high. I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain. Interlude”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭3:3-4‬ ‭NLT

His Joy

“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1: 2-4

“…so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold, which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:7

“so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12

“By your endurance, you will gain your lives.” Luke 21:19

Lord,

In life, there are many transitions. Some life-altering moments or life changes are easier than others. While I encounter various trials, I know the testing of my faith produces endurance.

I need Your guidance, comfort, and strength so I may endure the initial stages of the upcoming transition. My faith will be tested, I know.

I will praise and honor You as I adapt to my new lifestyle.

It is so exciting to have your rest. You are right there watching it all and protecting me from any given evil schemes. My desire is to display Your fragrance as I walk into challenging circumstances today.

I’m trusting in You alone, my Rescuer and Refuge.

In Jesus’ name, I courageously pray. Amen.

A Fragrant Aroma.

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things? For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.”

2 Corinthians 2:14-17

“What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.” Romans 1:15-18

“…and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” Ephesians 5:2

“But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.” Philippians 4:18

Lord,
I am your beloved daughter for such a time as this…
Allow Your fragrance to spread among those who are either lukewarm, in darkness or even lost.
Help me speak Your truth in love and glorify Your name.
Break down all Your teachings so I understand them clearly.
Show me ‘how to’ be obedient.
Help me take ungodly thoughts captive so I can surrender these negative thoughts at the feet of the Cross.
I want to be a slave of righteousness, walk in love, share Your wisdom to those who are in desperately need, and always maintain a fragrant aroma.

In Jesus’ name, I boldly pray. Amen

A Faithful God

He is a Faithful God.


“As for God, His way is blameless;
The word of the LORD is tested;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
God is my strong fortress;
And He sets the blameless in His way.
He makes my feet like hinds’ feet,
And sets me on my high places.” 2 Samuel 22: 31, 33-34


“The Rock! His work is perfect,
For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice,
Righteous and upright are He.” Deuteronomy 32: 4


Lord,
You are a shield and my fortress.
As I rely on You for strength, guidance, and comfort, You are faithful and merciful.
You are my only Rock!
Thank You, Jesus, for being so steadfast in my life.
In Jesus’ name, I boldly praise. Amen.

A Grateful Heart

I hope you had a relaxing weekend.

The fall season is here. As I grabbed the handle of a local store’s double doors this morning, I immediately noticed Christmas decorations everywhere. 

Unfortunately, I also sense the pressures of the upcoming Holiday season.

“What happened to Thanksgiving?” I whispered. A time to be ‘grateful’ and fellowship with family and friends. I immediately felt the rush and time constraints of this new season.

“I love Fall y’all.” So let slow down and enjoy the season of Thanksgiving.

Will you make time to study God’s Word?

If so, The Bible Reading Journal Series: A Grateful Heart is perfect for you so you can slow down a bit, and fellowship with the Lord for few minutes a day in the month of November.

It is now available on Amazon.com
