Smile baby girl, GOD is working everything out!

When you are broken and you cry out to Jesus sometimes it is hard to discern HIS VOICE through your pain. You may question if he hears you, sees you or if he indeed cares about your situation. Your heart may be shattered into a million tiny pieces and all you need is for Jesus to put you back together, but you feel HOPELESS…

You raise your hands toward the sky with tears streaming down your face in hopes to come “face to face with Jesus.” You want him to wrap his arms around you and whisper in your ear that everything is going to be ok. Sometimes this life is too much to endure all on our own. You cry out in desperation, in frustration you scream…

WHERE ARE YOU JESUS?

You question his presence when you need HIM most. Sometimes you have to wait through the pain all while continuing to cry out in desperation, longing for an answer. Your soul desires the answer only he can give. During this time of waiting you need to dig deep into God’s word, pray without ceasing and never, ever give up!

GOD IS WORKING EVEN WHEN YOU CAN NOT SEE…..

Woman of God your PRAYERS will move mountains and I assure you that they will be answered according to God’s plan and will.

Psalm 25:4-5 Bible verses. "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.:

God is working in your heart to break through your own walls in order for you to see His will clearly. You may not see HIS will very clear when your vision is clouded with pain and hopelessness. You may not see the roadblocks that prevent you from understanding his will. You may be broken, but God is the great physician. He is working in your favor defeating every feeling of hopelessness, despair, and brokenness.

He will rescue you, sustain you and make the crooked path you are walking along straight.

GOD IS A PRESENT HELP IN TIME OF NEED!!!!

Psalm 46:1-God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Today, if you are having feelings of HOPLESSNESS, DESPERATION, DESPAIR, OR PAIN; declare this over yourself every day for the next 30 days and all of these feelings will begin to disappear right before your eyes.

                                                I DECLARE

I DECLARE an abundance of faith over my life. I DECLARE that my prayers WILL indeed move the mountains in my life and the lives around me. I DECLARE favor over my life. I DECLARE clarity when my vision is being tested about God’s will for my life. I DECLARE the chains of bondage and sin are broken in Jesus name. I DECLARE that I will not be shaken or moved by my circumstance. I DECLARE that I am a daughter of God and no man can stop the destiny Father God has for me. I DECLARE that I am unstoppable, powerful and worthy to be used. I DECLARE that I am beautiful like the morning sun. I DECLARE that I am chosen, loved, called and equipped to finish any task set before me given by God. I DECLARE that I will trust in God in all things and he will answer me when I call upon him. I DECLARE no more pain, no more despair, and no more hopelessness in Jesus name! I DECLARE that I am forgiven and set apart. I DECLARE freedom from the lies of satan!

 

~I challenge you to take this declaration very seriously. Try to speak this over yourself for 30 days and watch God move in your life like you have never seen before! You have the power and authority to speak life and claim the blessings that God has for you. God does not want you to live a life of defeat! Just do not give up!!!!

Just do not give up!!!!

Preparing to fight: SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Have you noticed as of late that it seems that everyone you meet is trying to fight some kind of battle or the battle may even be within yourself?

Image result for spiritual battle

Spiritual warfare is nothing to dismiss and set aside in order for someone else to rescue you from. You have to be willing to dig deep and prepare to fight and this means WAR! Satan is on a rampage to keep you feeling defeated, stressed and depressed. He has a way of controlling our minds, leaving us to feel powerless against the battles that are intended to destroy us.

John 10:10For the thief comes only to kill, steal and destroy.

Satan convinces us with his evil, conniving, and manipulative behavior that we are weak. As long as he can control our minds and keep us bound by chains and believing his lies, he has won.

SOUND FAMILIAR?

Image result for spiritual battle

When we are going through a battle, satan will use anyone, even your closest friend or loved one against you. He will convince you to battle against those closest to you in order to get you off track. As long as you are focused on the stronghold, blaming someone else for the battle, satan will have you fighting them instead of him. This is just how he works!

SO HOW CAN YOU PREPARE TO FIGHT??

Scripture says plainly in Ephesians 6:12, we are not battling against “flesh and blood“, but against “spiritual forces of evil.” So the first thing to do is recognize who you are truly battling. Secondly, Ephesians 6:10-18, tells us to “PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD.”

Image result for full armour of god

We can only stand strong with God on our side against any kind of evil forces. If you are trying to battle these forces without God, you, unfortunately, will be gobbled up by the beast himself.

Once you have put on your armor, the battle is not over! Just like any other time of War, you have to train and prepare to fight!

Ephesians 6:18- Pray in the SPIRIT on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and request. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

You have to “train” and use the weapons that you have been given along with the armor that you should cover yourself with daily.

WEAPONS AGAINST THE FORCES OF SATAN…..

  1. Prayer/Your prayer language (You have no idea how powerful your prayers really are)
  2. Praise ( Your praise is a weapon! PSALM 149:6)
  3. The word of God (Speak the word of God and the devil will flee from you and others)

Image result for weapons you have to destroy spiritual warfare

Satan is always prepared to wound you first, are you prepared to block it?

What makes you beautiful???

WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL….

It is so very sad to me that anytime that I have attempted to search an image for “beautiful” on the internet it always leads to pictures of models or young women with perfect skin and the ideal body. Such images as these below appear:

Image result for beauty Image result for beauty

Image result for beauty

These women are quite “beautiful”, there is no question about that! But how much professional makeup and hair products does it take to try and obtain this look? Not to mention the “photoshop” edits that have been used for each of these photos before they have been released. 

My point is this….our daughters are growing up in a world believing that these above images are obtainable and pretty much a prerequisite to have in order to be told they are “beautiful”. This day and time there are filters that will apply makeup for you, shape your body, however, you may want it, enhance your breast, your butt, your lips, add freckles, take away moles or blemishes, etc…you get the point!

I have even seen online children as young as 8-13 years old giving makeup tutorials for crying out loud! We are raising our daughters to be “FAKE” and we are allowing them to change themselves digitally into whoever they think others will call beautiful. They even think they need 15 different makeup products and contour kits to look presentable

The sad part about this is that this does not only pertain to our daughters, it also applies to us MOMS as well…there I said it!

Image result for guilty

I will be the first one to raise my hand and say that I too am just as guilty as anyone. I have struggled with self-image and body image issues every since I was a little girl. For as long as I remember I have been on a “diet”. In high school, I would eat an apple a day, take laxatives, and work out like crazy. I could even go a few days without eating and then “binge” eat because I was literally starving! It never seemed like enough for me though, I did not have the body that any of my friends had and I tried everything in my power to obtain what was impossible just to be what my mind believed was “beautiful”.  Even in my mind, beauty was what everyone else saw on the outside. I would spend hours on makeup every morning, and even more, hours tanning each week because we all know that our skin looks better with a tan…right? Or so I thought then…

Image result for eating disorder quotes

 

DID YOU KNOW????

At least 30 million people of all ages suffer from an eating disorder in the U.S. Every 62 minutes at least one person dies as a result of an eating disorder. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. (All statistics found on the ANAD eating disorder website, anad.org)

THIS IS FACTS!!!! This terrible mental disorder is claiming so many lives! It saddens me so very much and my heart just breaks because I truly want every girl/woman to know how beautiful they are! We have got to get ahold of ourselves and our daughters! We have to teach them where true beauty comes from and like I said, I am right there with all of you.

SO HOW DO WE TEACH THEM THAT THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL??

First, we need to be honest with ourselves and vulnerable with our daughters. We all need to be open and honest about our issues. Let’s face it, our daughters know by the comments that we make about ourselves, how we truly feel about ourselves. If we own up to our imperfectness, that will show our daughters that we also struggle daily and that together we can change how we think about the word “beautiful”.  Also by being vulnerable your relationship will grow much stronger 🙂

Secondly, you share with them what God says about “beauty”….

1 SAMUEL 16:7-THE LORD DOES NOT LOOK AT WHAT MAN LOOKS AT. MAN LOOKS AT OUTWARD APPEARANCE, BUT THE LORD LOOKS AT THE HEART.

GENESIS 1:27- SO GOD CREATED MANKIND IN HIS OWN IMAGE, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD HE CREATED THEM; MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM

PSALM 139:14 I PRAISE YOU BECAUSE I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE; YOUR WORKS ARE WONDERFUL, I KNOW THAT FULL WELL.

So I am telling you that “WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BEAUTIFUL” is to have a beautiful heart! Nothing in a person’s outward appearance impresses God. God looks upon your inner beauty. God created you in his perfect image and he does not MAKE MISTAKES! You are beautiful!!

We have to realize that our beauty is not measured by what we look like on the outside and we need to be focused on our inward beauty. Let’s teach our daughters to be kind, be funny, love others, be compassionate and show them how to shine their light to a dark world.

TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE HOW OUR DAUGHTERS VIEW “BEAUTY” AND EVEN CHANGE OUR OWN POINT OF VIEW IN THE PROCESS.

LABEL ME THIS>>>>LABEL ME THAT…..

                                               TEAR OFF THE LABELS!!!!!!!!!

 

Image result for labels people give you

Have you ever been “labeled” as something? 

 

Some people may have “labeled” you because of something that you have done, your family has done, a lifestyle that you have chosen, or even by the food that you eat. It is not uncommon for us all to label each other, it is sad, but not uncommon.

Let’s look at Thomas in the Bible, he expressed some doubt one time in his life, and forever became known as “Doubting Thomas”. I mean have you ever in your life experienced a bit of doubt? I know that I have, so maybe we should not be so hard on Thomas after all.

John 20:24-29 (NIV)

Jesus Appears to Thomas 

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”

But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

 

Thomas was trying his best to wrap his head around being told that Jesus had risen from the dead! Thomas only questioned what had happened for a very short amount of time. The rest of the time he was a loyal follower of Christ.

Maybe you can relate to what Thomas was going through during this time. Maybe you have done a few things that you are not proud of, and someone gave you a label because of those actions.

Maybe you have even given certain labels to yourself:

-Worthless

-Depressed

-Unlovable

-Unimportant

-Disappointment

-Lonely

-Trapped

-Fat

Image result for let go

TODAY…..YES….TODAY…..LET GO OF THE LABELS….TEAR THEM OFF!!

You are not the sum of your mistakes and you are not made to live defeated by “labels”, mistakes do not define who you are and labels can be torn off and reapplied with something new. Only God himself has the right to label you and this is what he says:

 

YOU ARE LOVED (COLOSSIANS 3:12)

YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR (ROMANS 8:37)

YOU ARE REDEEMED (ROMANS 3:24)

 

Image result for god loves you

If you want to tear off those labels today, with God on your side it can be done! You do not have to be what people have said you are, or what you may feel that you are. You are a new creation, created by God and he loves you just the way you are.

Be blessed!

IT IS WELL…with my soul….

We all face difficult circumstances that tear us apart. The kind of circumstances that throw you off course and set you back. Or at least in your mind, it is a setback. But what if the circumstance is meant to promote you to a whole new level?

You have to tell yourself…it is well….

 

Image result for it is well with my soul

Whatever Journey that God has you on right now at this very moment, I first assure you that God’s plan will never harm you. Secondly, stop doubting yourself! You are equipped through God to finish what God has started in you. Every word that God has whispered to you in the dark will be brought to the light! DO not allow satan to control your mind, he has NO authority over you!

You are a child of God! You are chosen, you are called, and no man can stop the destiny God has for you. 

I have been struggling this week with something that happened a few months ago in my life. Due to that circumstance, I am having trouble moving on toward my destiny. I know with everything that I have within me that God has called me to do something else for his kingdom. He has even sent dreams, visions, and confirmations to others about the exact task that he has for me. But this week the devil keeps putting in my mind that I am just “not good enough” to do this. This dream is so much bigger than myself and I am fighting within myself to believe that I can even do what I am called to do.

Can any of you relate?

See the devil knows my weaknesses, just as he knows very plainly about yours. He knows exactly what to say to me to get me down. I struggle with anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and fear of failing. So whenever I think that I have a handle on things and I take the first step to move forward, I am suddenly sent backward.

Until today…….

Image result for moving on quotes

Today I decided…it is well with my soul! It is well that God moved me into another direction, even though it has hurt and the road has been rough, my soul truly longs to do what God has called me to do. Today I decided that every time I feel defeated or have a negative thought,  I am going to quote this scripture to myself and I pray you will do the same.

PHILIPPIANS  4:13- I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH GOD WHO STRENGTHENS ME!

We have to realize that life does not go according to OUR own plans. Only God knows the plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11) Sometimes we are moved from other areas in which we were serving God because God is promoting us to a new level. You need to decide today that no matter the circumstance that you will not let it determine your future. You have to move forward and tell the devil to get off your back!

Opened eyes: Building better relationships with our Husbands…

I will first start this out by saying that I am not the perfect wife. I only strive every single day to be the best wife that I can be and I still fall short some days. Over the years God has changed my perspective and opened my eyes to a few simple tips that may help your relationship with your husband.

Image result for quotes about husbands

HERE ARE A FEW KEY TIPS WITH EXPLANATIONS:

  1. HE NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION
  2. HE HAS FEELINGS TOO
  3. COMMUNICATION IS KEY
  4. ACCEPT HIS FLAWS (WORK AS A TEAM)
  5. PRAY FOR HIM DAILY

Sometimes we fail to see that our husbands still need attention. Often at times, I count my husband as one of my children, along with our dog, because they all fight for my attention. As wives and mothers, we are very busy human beings and there have been so many times at the end of the day that I have felt like I can’t do one more thing…

But our husbands need us too…

Not only do they need us, but they need us to be PRESENT! They need us to make them feel important and not like they are just another chore or check off to one of our checklists. We have to shut off our “mommy brains” in order to focus on the needs of our husbands. That need may not only be sexual, who am I kidding 99.999% of the time it is lol…but we all knew that. But if you actually decide to focus some much-needed one on one time with them, giving them your full attention, it will indeed turn out that they just want to spend some quality time with you and not share your attention with anyone else.

Image result for quotes about husbands needing your attention

Men are like grown children…true story!

If they are not receiving the proper amount of attention from you, they will pout, have temper tantrums and eventually find a new toy to play with and often times in marriages this eventually leads down a long road of destruction.

Image result for quotes about husbands feelings

~Secondly, your husband has feelings too. I know that this one is hard for some to accept, due to your husbands not exactly “showing” you that they have feelings. But I assure you that each and every one of them does.

The myth that men are unfeeling creates damaging relationship problems. ~Daphne Rose Kingma

Have you ever ignored your husband’s feelings, just because you felt that at the time they were irrelevant?

I know that I have failed at this on many occasions. My husband and I have been together for 17+ years. Throughout those years we have had our fair share of disagreements. Often at times, I would want him to see how I felt, but when it came to him explaining his feelings, I just could not understand how he could feel that way. Sound familiar?

It was like I could not accept that maybe I too had some issues that I needed to work out. So many times I would pray for God to change my husband’s heart when I was actually the one that needed the heart change. I needed to open my ears and truly listen to what my husband was explaining to me.

I had to understand that my husband’s feelings were just as important as mine, even though he had a weird way of expressing them, his feelings needed my acceptance.

Image result for how do husbands show they have feelings

Your husband may express himself through anger or pride when in all actuality he is sad and vulnerable. Men may convert feminine feelings into more socially acceptable feelings for themselves just to show that they are manly. Part of the problem for some men may be that they have silenced their feelings for so long that they haven’t developed resources for handling them when they do arise. Such unplanned, unexpected emotion can often prove overwhelming. So they may react in a manner that you deem unacceptable, but that leads me to the third key point….Communication.

 

Image result for communicationCommunication is key..

How we communicate in our relationships is key to having a successful marriage.

Communication in a relationship is extremely important because it acts as the judge, jury, and executioner for who has the final say on whether your relationship lives or dies. Being able to communicate effectively can also stop needless arguments which occur regularly in your relationships.

If you have been together for a long while, you have probably had one or more arguments or disagreements. I mean I do not know of anyone that gets along 100% of the time and if you do, you must have some kind of super -power or you are quite frankly unicorns or something of that nature. All jokes aside, we all have faced difficult times communicating in our relationships.

Communication is not all about talking, it is having a passionate connection with the one that you love.

HERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO COMMUNICATE BETTER-

  1. Find the Right Time. If something is bothering you and you would like to have a conversation about it, it can be helpful to find the right time to talk. …
  2. Talk Face to Face. …
  3. Do Not Attack. …
  4. Be Honest. …
  5. Check Your Body Language. …
  6. LISTEN CAREFULLY
  7. Give each other time to talk and express feelings
  8. Do not judge one another for feeling a certain way
  9. Do not fight through text or emails, those can be misconstrued
  10. Openly agree to disagree
  11. Move past the hurt and focus on what truly matters

 

Image result for accepting your husband's flaws

Romans 15:7-Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

Just as Christ has accepted us and all of our flaws, we are also called to accept our husbands just the same.

EVEN WHEN OUR HUSBANDS DRIVE US INSANE!!!

My husband has a tendency to do things that absolutely causes my skin to crawl. One of those many things is when he chews with his mouth open. Oh my goodness, it drives me up the wall!! I can not stand that sound at all coming from anyone, but when my husband does it, I go crazy on him..no joke! I ask him calm and polite the first few times to close his mouth, but when he does not listen, I make terrible remarks to him.

I have had to accept him and all of the flaws that I do not like about him, just as he has about me. We are both a work in progress as most people are. I have had to ask my husband for forgiveness a million times because I constantly point out things he does that I do not like. Can any of you relate?

Why is it so easy for us to point out what everyone else does wrong, but we can not seem to look in the mirror and see what all we do wrong as well?

Image result for john 8:7

 

We are not called to “throw stones” at our husbands because they are less than perfect. We have to learn to love “all” of them, including their flaws. We all have things we need to work on to improve our relationships. So build your relationship on a team effort and see how your relationship will improve drastically! It takes both partners in agreement to build each other up instead of tearing each other down…

Image result for micah 7:19

Are you wearing your past mistakes, painful hurts, and bad decisions from yesterday like a common garment?

Reliving scenarios from the past is toxic and harmful to your future. If you are wearing your past mistakes, painful hurts and all the bad decisions that you have ever made like a garment of clothing then you are allowing these things to define who you are today.

Holding on to the past and carrying around old shame, guilt and hurt only hinders the great blessings that God has just for you!

You are allowing satan to overcome your mind with negative thoughts about yourself and we all know that is right where he wants you to be! The devil does not belong there, but only you can remove this garment from around your shoulders!

Micah 7:18-19 tells us above that God has compassion for us and he throws all of our sins into the depths of the sea. What this means is that as soon as we repent of our sins, God forgives those sins, cast them away and NEVER thinks about them again! So why in the world do we hold onto our sin knowing that God above loves us enough to forget about what we have done?

You need to stop thinking about your past failures, right now, today! Are you ignoring them? No! You are ignoring a lie, not the sin because the sin has been dealt with and washed away. Therefore, you are meditating on something that no longer exists! If your sins are in the depths of the sea, then why are you still thinking about them?

It is time to take back what the devil has stolen from you!

"Something was wrong back in those early days of marriage, but I couldn't identify it. That's the sneaky thing about shame. Guilt says you've done something wrong, but shame says you are something wrong. Shame was like a squatter in my heart that refused to leave." ~ Sheila Walsh || Click to read today's full devotion!

Now that our past failures have been forgiven, we need to leave them there and press forward towards the things God has for us:

Philippines 3:13, “…this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”

God is ready to wrap his loving arms around you and take away the shame that you have been drowning in. Don’t look back! You are no longer heading in that direction! The blessings that are coming your way will exceed every expectation that you have ever had for yourself…

HEBREWS 12~ Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

SO HOW CAN WE RID OURSELVES FROM WEARING THE GARMENTS FROM OUR PAST?

-FORGIVE YOURSELF AND ALLOW GOD TO ALSO FORGIVE YOU

-PUT ON THE GARMENT OF PRAISE AND GET YOUR PRAISE AND WORSHIP ON

-LEAVE THE PAST IN THE PAST WHERE IT BELONGS!! (WE ALL HAVE MADE MISTAKES< JUST DO NOT LET THOSE MISTAKES DEFINE YOU)

-LET GO OF WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK FROM RECEIVING YOUR BLESSINGS

-DON’T LOOK BACK!! RUN TOWARD YOUR FUTURE

 

Haha. Sort of a clever way to put it. Makes me think.

DON’T LOOK BACK< YOU ARE NO LONGER GOING IN THAT DIRECTION….

 

LET THE RESURRECTED KING TAKE ALL YOUR SIN & SHAME AWAY!

Power & Authority…

DO YOU KNOW THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THAT YOU HAVE POWER AND AUTHORITY?

Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

 

LUKE 10:19- Behold, I have given you an authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. (ESV)

You have the power and authority to move the mountains that are standing in someone’s way or even your own. If you will take the time to pray and seek God believing in faith, God’s power will be released into the lives that you lifted up in prayer. God hears your prayers woman of God!! Stand tall and believe that you are “UNSTOPPABLE”!!

Do not exhaust yourself with trying to fix people or their problems all on your own! With God on your side, he will intervene on your behalf, swoop in and provide the strength that you need along with graciously giving you his power and authority. You will overcome any and every obstacle that tries to come against you or others.

SO NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER THAT YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN!

K-LOVE Daily Verse: For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 NLT

God has already equipped you with the greatness that you have inside. It only takes “YOU” to unleash that greatness! You have to believe in yourself because sadly this day and time it is almost near impossible to find someone that truly believes in your dreams and visions, other than God and yourself. As women of God, we have to stop looking at ourselves as weak individuals! For it is through your weaknesses that you stumble upon your strengths!! YOU HAVE THE POWER!!!

IF GOD IS FOR US< WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?? 

Post your Prayer Requests on Instapray. Pray with the whole world ---------> www.instapray.com

There is POWER in the name of Jesus and he has given you also this power to succeed in this life. You have a calling on your life that NO MAN can change! Your destiny has already been written by the Lord God ALMIGHTY!

Start today by using the POWER AND AUTHORITY over all evil that you hold inside of “YOU”!!

WAYS TO PRAY FOR YOUR FRIENDS!

PRAYING FOR YOUR FRIENDS IS SOOO IMPORTANT!

7 Ways to Pray for Your Friends - Grace, Faith, and Glitter

God has really placed on my heart here lately how important it is to pray for our friends. I began reading my devotion this morning about how God is always there for us even when we can not see him working. I started thinking about how I could be there for my friends more, even when I do not see them all the time. Then it was like a lightbulb turned on inside my head and I heard God say “pray for them”!

I usually pray for my friends each day, but sometimes I seem to forget that they too have things that go on in their lives that nobody else knows about, other than God above. All in all, we all need someone to cover us with prayers.

Sunday Scripture | Guilt-free friendship focuses on the friendship and ditches the guilt. Guilt-free friendship loves any chance and any slice of time to catch up, it isn’t about criticizing how much or how frequently that happens. Instead, guilt-free friendship is generous and forgiving and creates easy space for reconnecting because it doesn’t have any conditions for how or when or how often that happens. // Lisa-Jo Baker at incourage.me

Friends give you hope when you are feeling low, Friends know just how to soothe your aching soul.

Count yourself blessed even if you have only one, for that one is worth so much more than none.

Hold that friendship so close to your heart, for only God put you together from the start.

 

.... Her prayers can move mountains!!! ...Because her Savior can move mountains!!! I want my granddaughters to always remember: nothing is impossible for God; prayer is powerful when it's from the heart; God will Always answer ..You just have to trust Him!

Your prayers can indeed move mountains! Your friends have mountains that need to indeed be moved! We need to bind satan and every attack that he has to try and tear our friendships apart! We need to stand in the gap for our friends and cover them with prayers…daily!

FOR WHO BETTER TO PRAY>>>>>>>OTHER THAN YOU??

(.....cr.....this verse is the one that my oldest granddaughter first memorized when she was about two...now 27 with a daughter of her own....)

HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND Y’ALL
