Under Pressure Diamonds Are Made…

Do you feel as if you are under immense pressure?

During this time of testing and pressure…God is doing work within you!

3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 

6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 

7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 

8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. 

9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. 

10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wildflower. 

11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business. 

12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. 

13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;

According to Wikipedia, the most natural DIAMONDS are made under immense pressure and extremely high heat temperatures.  Special gemological techniques have been developed to distinguish natural diamonds, synthetic diamonds, and diamond simulants. The word is from the ancient Greek ἀδάμας – adámasunbreakable“.

So what in the world would “diamonds, pressure, and testing mean to you and to me?”

The word of God explains so very clearly that the pressure that you are feeling in your life right now is actually “testing your faith and developing perseverance.” Just as a diamond is pressed upon, shaken and prone to the exposure of fiery hot heat…you yourself may be feeling the heat and pressure in your own life.

So many times we do not see what God is doing in the midst of the trials that we face, but we have to always know and understand that during these times of testing that God has never left our side! God may not be speaking quite as loudly to you and that does not mean he is not there, that means that the TEACHER is just being quiet during the TEST. 

God wants to see how you decide to study for the test….

Do you give up at the very beginning?

Do you try to seek advice or all the answers from someone other than him?

Do you fully trust in HIS will and HIS way and allow him to polish you and mold you into who you are created to be?

THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
Growth happens when your faith is being tested, promotion happens when your faith is being tested and your reliance on God lacks nothing!

The enemy wants nothing more other than for you to give up during this time of immense pressure and intense heat. Sadly many, many Christians do give up. They decide that God is just not enough to see them through and the diamond that God had intended them to be cracks and crumbles under the pressure.

That is not what God wants or has planned for his children!

Once you have endured through to the end, not giving up, and staying steadfast planted firm on the rock, the beautiful diamond that you are is born. You will indeed be “unbreakable” and you will lack nothing other than to seek God more intensely in all that you do. Your foundation of faith will be as strong as 1,000 men. HALLELUJAH!! GLORY BE TO GOD!!

THERE IS A DIAMOND WITHIN EACH ONE OF US….

CAN YOU HANDLE THE PRESSURE?

CAN YOU PASS THE TEST?


PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you today asking that during these hard times of pressure and heat in our lives that we stay strong and true to your word. I pray that we do not give up! Help us to see what you are doing in and through us during this time, Lord. Make us and mold us into the beautiful diamonds that you know we are God. We love you and thank you for everything you are doing. Forgive us when we fail you, in Jesus precious name we pray…AMEN!


Do not give up!!!

The pressure is molding you and making you into who you are created to be!

Are You Being Called Into Intercession?

DO YOU TOSS AND TURN ALL NIGHT WITH THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON YOUR SHOULDERS?

DO YOU HAVE THINGS THAT POP INTO YOUR MIND OR PEOPLE THAT POP INTO YOUR MIND THAT YOU ARE URGED TO PRAY FOR?

DO YOU CRY OUT TO GOD ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR THE HURTING OF OTHERS?

DO YOU HAVE A DEEP CONCERN FOR OTHERS THAT MAY BE LIVING A SINFUL LIFE?

DO YOU HAVE COMPASSION SO DEEPLY FOR OTHERS THAT ARE NOT DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO YOU THAT BRINGS YOU TO TEARS?

*If you have answered “Yes” to these questions, you may be called into intercession or intercessory prayer.

PRAYER WARRIORS ARISE!!
Intercession is warfare!
The battle is not ours alone, it is God’s!

When you are called to be an intercessor you are called to intercede through prayer to God on the behalf of yourself and others. There are many ways in which God may speak to you about interceding and he speaks to each one of us differently.

~A FEW WAYS IN WHICH GOD MAY SPEAK TO YOU~

~Through a dream

~Through a vision

~Through a feeling

~Through hearing

~Through Nature

~Through impression

~Through thoughts

Intercession involves the ability to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit while in prayer and know what His direction is in that moment; therefore, when we step into the realm of intercessory prayer, it is also prophetic. 

The prophetic often flows out of intercession.

As we intercede, whether it is to be for people, nations, current events or governments, the Lord will speak back to us, releasing His power through his words he is speaking to us.  We then use these prophetic words to make declarations, bind demonic activity and bring into existence in the natural what the Lord has already spoken in the spiritual. It is always good for the prophetic words to be written down, so they can be referred to for further prayer, in addition to serving as a reference of how God brings things to reality.

When the prophetic and intercession come together, it brings destruction to the devil’s tactics and heals the broken heart of an individual at the same time. With these combined actions, it will bring a manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

The Bible says, “We are not fighting against our brothers or sisters. We are fighting against forces of evil and authorities and against rulers of darkness and spiritual powers in the heavens above” (Eph. 6:12).


Ephesians 6:12 (NIV)

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.



Prayer is powerful and actually has two sides….listening and talking..

The ability to function prophetically in times of intercession takes faith, practice, and patience. 

Faith to pray out loud what you believe God is speaking, practice in learning to discern the Holy Spirit’s leading on a personal level as well as for a group and patience to trust and obey God with what he has spoken to you.

Intercessory prayer is a very serious matter. And just like soldiers who are preparing for battle, we cannot take on the enemy if we leave our weapons behind. That’s why we must go into “battle” armed for spiritual warfare.  (see 2 Cor. 10:3-4 below).


2 Corinthians 10:3-4(NIV)

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.


When you are called to intercede, you will pray without ceasing and with prayer you also use other spiritual gifts that you have been given.

You are using the gift of faith when you know that the prayer request is being answered immediately.

You are using the gift of miracles when you believe for the impossible to happen.

 You are using the gift of a word of knowledge when you know things about certain situations or individuals that you have no way of knowing other than by the Holy Spirit telling you.

The compassion you feel so deeply for others is the gift of mercy. The Holy Spirit leads and guides you to a clear understanding of the heart of God himself.

INTERCESSORY PRAYER IS AN AMAZING GIFT AND I PRAY THAT EACH OF YOU ALL WILL SEARCH YOUR HEARTS AND DETERMINE IF YOU ARE BEING CALLED INTO INTERCESSION. 


When God revealed to me why I am the way that I am and I began to dig into his word everything that has happened in my life made more sense. I now understand why I have had to go through everything that I have gone through throughout my life. God was calling me to my destiny and building my faith with each and every setback that I have faced…

I understand fully why I worship the way I do with such adoration for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

I understand fully why I am so compassionate towards others and why I have a love that runs deeper than any ocean for every single person!

I understand now why I long to see everyone come to know Jesus!

I understand why I pray the way I do..with such passion and faith, knowing that God hears me!

I understand now why I have dealt with depression, anxiety, oppression, doubt, fear, insecurities, rejection, abandonment, and loneliness. God wanted me to learn to rest with him and not seek validation from anyone other than him!

I understand now that my calling has always been the same, but my assignment has changed.

I am called for such a time as this to intercede on the behalf of others, share the gospel and love of Jesus to everyone that I meet and to equip the daughters of God to learn to be who they are in Christ. 

I now know who I am..

Do you??


Have a blessed week!

Arise Daughters Of God

        There are so many days that I begin to write and the enemy whispers to me that I have no business writing anything. I have never claimed to be “perfect, sinless, or without blemish.”  I have made plenty of mistakes throughout my lifetime… past, present and I hate to tell you this, but I will make plenty more in my future. So if you are watching me just waiting for me to fail, I probably will more than once, but I will get back up, dust myself off and try again.

That is because I am not a quitter!
That is because I am an overcomer!
 That is because I have a God that loves me and a God that has placed a calling and purpose in my life that is bigger than I could ever imagine!
Everything that has tried to defeat me, kill me and destroy me has FAILED! 
 God has called me for “such a time as this.”

 God has spoken so clearly to me about what my mission is to be. See, he knows my name…he knows my struggles...and he has whispered promises to me that no man or devil in hell can take away!

So though my sins are scarlet, he has washed me white as snow.

I  know that I am not the best writer and I know that I will never go a day without making a mistake, but God says “I am his own.” Even when I fail God each day, he still wants to use me and he wants to use you too. 

DO YOU HEAR WHAT I AM SAYING TODAY?

If the devil has tried everything that he can to get you down and you have placed your feet on  HOLY GROUND, dwelling, not moving and standing firm in God…you cannot be moved or shaken.

You have to get to a point in your life to where the only thing that matters is God and what he has for you!

If God has placed something on your heart..go after it FIERCLY!!

Walk in OBEDIENCE and see where God leads and guides you.

God does not call the equipped, he equips the CALLED!

Do not allow the enemy to whisper lies to you. The only reason he is tormenting you is so that you will not reach your true destiny. The devil knows what God has inside of you and he wants to get you so down in the dumps that you give up on your dreams and callings.

You are called to be used by God!

God may be telling you to do something and the spirit of fear is upon you...I REBUKE that spirit off of you in JESUS NAME!!!

The devil has NO AUTHORITY over a CHILD OF GOD!!
ARISE DAUGHTERS OF GOD!!
ARISE!!

YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER!

Do you not believe that if God can do a work in me, that he also can do a work in you?

Do you not believe that there is greatness in you?

GOD HAS CALLED YOU, YES …YOU, FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!

Dear Frazzled Mama…

I see you, yes you, the one that is walking the aisles of the supermarket in a sudden daze of what is yet to come for the day. You walk aimlessly down the cereal aisle, picking one out, knowing that your kiddos will fight over the one you bought, so you buy two separate boxes just to keep your kids from fighting.

You walk by slowly, taking your time,  looking, gazing, browsing and you often wonder how you even got to this place. You come to this supermarket at the same time and same day of every week just to escape. Escape the chaos…escape the noise that is constantly inside of your head…escape…the nagging….just to simply escape…

 

You are frazzled Mama..and that is ok!

 

We all feel your pain, us Moms that is. We all know exactly what if feels like to try your best to be “SUPERMOM” and to fail quite miserably.

There are basketball practices, dance recitals, Church fundraisers, suppers to be made, dentist appointments that need to be made, school projects that have made us competitive monsters, lunches that need to be made…etc…etc…you get the picture…..we have a lot on our plates.

We juggle everything from the finances, to family life, to work life, to church life, to ministry life, school life, and somehow the “everything’s” in our life gets done.

Life is hectic and all we want to know is if we are doing a good job at this mom thing..can I get an AMEN??

I am going, to be honest with you all. I am a hot mess 99 % of the time. I wing it, everything that is! There are days when I do not even care what my kids wear to school anymore. There are days when I literally throw whatever I can in their lunch boxes because I am tired of them fussing and not eating what I put in there. There are days that I cry after I drop them off at school because the pressure to be the “perfect” mom is just way too much!

I am tired…I am frazzled…and yes, I often at times just want a vacation..alone…

But one thing I know for sure is that my kiddos are loved and that they have a Mom that does not have it all together, but I try. I try each and every day to teach them to love like Jesus loves. I try each and every day to show them what being kind is all about and how to strive to be “the best versions of themselves as possible.” 

I try…and that has to be enough!


YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB!

YOU ARE LOVED!

YOU ARE ENOUGH!

KEEP TRYING!

NEVER GIVE UP!

KEEP HUSTLING!

KEEP LOVING!

KEEP PRAYING!


LOVE & BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL!

Holy Sex: 6 Ways To Create Intimacy With Your Spouse..

I have no earthly idea why SEX is such a bad word in the Church. It seems as though everybody gets embarrassed and nobody wants to talk about it. I am not saying that you need to tell everyone about your personal business, but I am saying that sex needs to be talked about in a Godly sense. You need intimacy daily with your spouse …just as you need intimacy daily with God.

1 Corinthians 7:5 (NIV)

Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.


Sex is a beautiful holy act meant for married couples. God created sex for much more than just procreation. Intimacy with your spouse brings you both together into an experience of Sacred Holy Sex. Each and everytime you make love with your spouse, you are being obedient to God and what he requires of you in a marriage. This is a time for bonding not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and yes, spiritually…

When you join together as one focusing on each other and each other’s needs, that truly pleases God. The devil is in fact intimidated by love connections strong in marriages and this is because if you are daily taking time to make love with your spouse and their needs are being met, then the devil cannot use the worldly desires to come between the two of you.

  • The devil wants to tempt you both with the things of this world
  • The devil will try to break the marriage bond by making you think that your spouse cannot meet your needs!

~THE DEVIL WILL WHISPER THESE THINGS TO YOU~

1. You are not pretty/handsome enough.

2. You are not skinny enough.

3. You are not good enough for your spouse.

4. Your body does not please your spouse.

5.Nobody is looking if you want to get on that site again..your spouse will never know.

6. He/She can meet your needs that your spouse cannot meet.

7. He/She does not appreciate you.

8. He/She does not respect you.

9. He/She will do all the things your spouse won't do.

10. You should be jealous of what their marriage has that yours does not.

11. You do not measure up.

12. There just is not enough time in my day to fit sex in.

13. I am just too tired to make love.

14. My kids need me more than my spouse does.

15. He/She does not help you around the house or give you praise when you do.

Do any of these sound familiar?

Sex is a form of communication with your spouse. You are saying with your actions that they are important to you, you are putting their needs above your own needs, and you are creating a trust that will bond you both together like the strongest super glue.

When BOTH spouses needs are being met, you will not have to worry about outside forces such a porn being brought into your marriage. When you and your spouse experience sex as a truly HOLY & SACRED ACT, you will not have to worry about your spouse seeking attention from others and you will not have to worry about what they are doing when they are on their phone all of the time.

You will also not have feelings towards each other such as anger, sadness, loneliness,  bitterness, hurt, or pain because as a couple you will be on the same page meeting each other’s needs. You will begin to communicate in a whole new and improved way. Your spouse will go out of their way to meet your needs, once you go out of your way to meet theirs.

CAN I GET AN AMEN??

It is a blessing to be able to come into a time of intimacy with your soulmate and the person that God has placed you with. There should never be any kind of excuse given to not have sex with your spouse. I do understand that at times one or the other spouse may have a higher or lower sex-drive and this can be for many reasons, but even though this may be true, you still have to think of their needs above your own. 

You have to get to the root of the problem and answer these key questions.

Do you know what your spouse’s love language is?

Am I respecting and loving my spouse for who they are?

Are you meeting each other’s emotional needs first?

Is my spouse treating me a certain way because their needs are not being met?

Is my sex drive higher or lower than my spouses?


Talk about the answers to these questions and pray about how you can meet any and all of the needs of your spouse.



I know that I get told this a lot, “I just do not have the same sex drive as my spouse…”

So, if you are the one with a HIGHER sex drive and your spouse has the LOWER sex drive or vice versa, try maybe spicing things up a bit and go out of your way to make sure that all of your spouse’s needs are being met. That includes emotional needs and support. If your spouse seems stressed at work and overwhelmed, offer them a Massage, run a hot bath for them, encourage them by talking with them about how you can help them, Or maybe your spouse does not feel confident with themselves and you may need to step up your game with positive affirmations.

It is ok to text your spouse something flirty and something that will boost their self-confidence. Or better yet, flirt with them throughout the whole entire day! I mean we all want to be told that we “still got it” and who better to hear that from other than our spouses?

Am I right?

By doing these things your sexual needs will also be met. You have to get to the point to where you “crave” each other and you cannot go a day without being with each other. This kind of attraction for your spouse is ELECTRIC! When you step into this kind of intimacy with your spouse, you will be on the same page in life and you will want nothing more other than to be in each other’s presence.

It is kind of like your relationship with God. The more you seek him and soak in his presence creating intimacy with him the closer to him you will become. You are called to have those intimate moments with your spouse just as you need intimate moments alone with God…


6 Ways To Create Intimacy With Your Spouse…


PUT YOUR SPOUSES NEEDS BEFORE YOUR OWN

PRAY TOGETHER EACH DAY

SPICE IT UP BY FLIRTING WITH ONE ANOTHER DAILY

SPEAK POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS OVER EACH OTHER DAILY

DO NOT WITHHOLD SEX FROM EACH OTHER

MAKE A GOAL EACH DAY TO SET ASIDE TIME FOR SOME KIND OF INTIMACY WITH ONE ANOTHER


I promise you that by doing these things, you will see a huge difference in your marriage just by simply making love more often. You will laugh more, you will become better friends and you will experience what sex in marriage is truly meant to be..Intimate...Sacred & Holy.

HEALING YOUR MIND, BODY, AND SOUL WITH 20 POWERFUL BIBLE VERSES…

I know that I am not alone when I say that we all need prayers. The devil is wrecking havoc everywhere! The enemy wants nothing more other than to destroy everyone and everything around you. He will weave his way into your thoughts and slowly you will find yourself full of despair.

Am I right?

Many families are facing storms that are set out to destroy them.

After all, that is what the devil wants!


John 10:10(NIV)

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

1 Peter 5:8(NIV)

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.



The devil will start by attacking our minds, which leads to harmful effects on our bodies and last but not least he will slowly damage our beautiful souls.

That is his ultimate goal anyway….

The devil will get you so stressed out with worry and tension that you begin to have health issues such as headaches, panic attacks, high blood pressure, depression, gastrointestinal problems, heart palpitations, ulcers, acid reflux, and anxiety; the stress is taking a toll on your body.

Can you relate?

It is like a domino effect. Once your mind is filled with negative thoughts about yourself and others, you are right where the devil wants you to be. You will begin falling apart physically and growing wearier in your mind by the day. Defeated is now where your mind lives and thoughts of giving up seem to be the easiest answer to all of your problems.

Are you drowning in your own pain, begging, wanting relief or needing someone to throw you an anchor?

Do you feel lost…..sad and alone?

 Unfortunately,  you cannot remove those thoughts out of your head ON YOUR OWN!!!! 

You may even begin to question God. Your soul is being sucked right into the chaos and the devil’s wrath. You were once the first one at church every time the doors were opened and now you come a few times a month if that. Every single day is a struggle! The thought of actually saying a prayer hasn’t even crossed your mind in who knows how long and you feel very far away from God.

AM I TALKING TO YOU???

I have found out that the only solution in order to heal your mind, body, and soul from the attacks from the devil is to read God’s word daily, use his written word found only in the Holy Bible as a weapon against the devil and his attacks, pray the written word over yourself, and praise God no matter what circumstance that you may be facing.

You have to take the time to feed yourself spiritually just as you do physically. 

“20” SCRIPTURES TO PRAY OVER YOURSELF DAILY……

the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds, we are healed.

BY HIS WOUNDS YOU ARE HEALED!!!!!


~Isaiah 54:17(NIV)
