Victory

To my fellow Christians:
Yesterday I had a good talk with myself and as I was finishing up processing, I had some profound thoughts that I wanted to share. I have been feeling so much pressure to perform and do the things I know the Lord has asked me to do, yet I have not done them yet. Today I realized that it isn’t about me at all, its all about it being His work and He is already victorious and will continue to be victorious, so there is no need to worry or fear. If I don’t step up to the plate, someone else will because His purposes will be fulfilled, because He is in charge and it’s not about determining our worth, or us standing in the way of the work, it has nothing to do with us. We just get to decide whether we want to be a worker or not, and decide what kind of a life we want to create. The fact that we live and love Him is testimony enough, making the choice to come to earth we solidified our standing with Him and so when we invite Him in we have access to all that He offers. This life is purely about learning and creating: learning how to become creators. We need to stop being scared of opposition and stop thinking that Satan has power over us that we don’t have control over. We are all players on a stage, the opposition is simply a catalyst for growth….period. And the adversary only has as much power over us and we give him. Those who have accepted Christ as their Savior and strive each day to remember him and emulate him…..are already victorious, because He was victorious on the cross. This life is not about us, its about something so much bigger…LOVE LEARNING and JOY!

If you feel like your life has just been one drama after another, one challenge after another, one uphill battle after another, just know you are right where you need to be and you have no need to think that you are worthless, that your life is meaningless, that you have accomplished nothing in this battle of life! If you are still breathing, standing and have an inkling of hope and faith….You are victorious! Even if you don’t feel like this today, just know, it’s coming! You are God’s child and he made you to be victorious! Lean on Jesus’s victory! Love you guys! Have a victorious day thru Christ the Lord!

In the Uphill Climb

As I reflect today on the past couple of weeks and as I have been asked to pass thru some difficult challenges at this time, these are the thoughts that have rested upon me:

It is in the midst of our greatest trials and struggles that the potential for higher learning is great. If we will but turn to our Lord and humble ourselves before him, and plead for his guidance…we will be taught, tutored and comforted. These are the teaching grounds of life and when we choose to learn from the challenge and let the pain teach us, we will be blessed with understandings beyond our own comprehension. In this, the challenging times are a gift and a literal preparation for us to reach higher and be taught and tutored by the Lord in a no other way then when we are humbled and on our knees searching for the answers. It is in the hunger for relief, the hunger to understand, the hunger to be comforted, that we are then fed…. because we are ready and we need it and we will know what to do with it. In this, I am thankful for an all loving and merciful Father who has set the path, the way, and lovingly allows the experiences that we need for us to grow in stature and in true happiness, by allowing these challenges to come time and time again.

If you have ever wondered if there is a God who loves you, if you have a purpose in this life, or why life seems like an uphill journey for you most of the time…..let me just bear witness that there is a God, who is LOVE and loves all and if your life is an uphill battle, it is a manifestation of His love for you. He has a message for you, He sees your greatness and is calling it out, He is calling you out….to come to Him. Come and kneel at His feet, cry out to Him and learn from Him. Let him teach you and love on you and heal you. Then stand tall and keep moving forward and share the love and lessons with others.
