In The Fire

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counselors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 

He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

   I am pretty certain we can all agree that 2020 definitely threw us a major punch in the stomach. Now, I have so much respect for the punching bag. 2020 just feels like one punch after another. It is like you try to grasp that split second in time to catch some fresh air or at least try to get back on your feet, then BOOM, another swing. You know, the most interesting thing about the punching bag is that it bounces back every time. No matter how hard the hit or the amount of hits, the punching bag always springs back to formation--and so will you.

Be Still and Know

Moses spoke to the people: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today for you’re never going to see them again.God will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!” - Exodus 14:13-14 (MSG)
Then Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid! Take your stand [be firm and confident and undismayed] and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for those Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see again.The Lord will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.” - Exodus 14:13-14 (AMP)
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. - Psalm 46:10 (KJV)
“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God.I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.” -Psalm 46:10 (AMP)
     I thank the Lord for this beautiful day! It has officially been two years since this …

Do Not Lose Confidence

Hebrews 10: 35-36: Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience,that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.  - KJV

Galatians 6: 9: And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
     -KJV


   I think it has been almost a year or more since the last post. A lot has transpired since then. Quite honestly, the Lord kept pressing upon my heart to continue updating the blog but I was always too busy or tired. Busy with what? Work, school, church, dance practice, etc. All these activities are good but I think sometimes we get so caught up in "doing" that we forget what is really important- spending time and listening to God. I started getting so tired, frustrated, and my attitude was not the very best. I did not like the fact that I was always weary when the entire time the Lord is saying "Learn of Me." He tells us in Matthew 11:28-29 "…
Keep Trusting


Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.   -Proverbs 3: 5-6 (KJV)

   Keep trusting HIM. Keep trusting in the Lord. Abide and rest in Him. How? In His word. Meditate on His word. Reflect on what He has done in your life and what He is doing now. A lot of times we do not know or understand what is happening. Those are the moments when we must rely heavily on our faith in the Lord. He knows the details concerning every aspect of our lives. We must let the light of His word shine in the dark crevices of our hearts. Only God can lift the weight. He says, "Come unto me, all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest," (Matthew 11:8). Such wonderful words. Sometimes in our dark moments that is a difficult thing to do. Trust and rest? How can I? you may ask. No one ever said it would be easy. Abiding in His word helps us accomplish this task. Sometimes …

The Benefits of Trusting God

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (KJV)

   As stated in the previous post, trusting in God is not always easy. For some of us it is the most difficult thing to do. We try to control the circumstances, problems, and people around us. Our natural inclination is to fix everything when something goes wrong, which is not always a bad thing. Yet, what about the situations we cannot fix or get under control? What do we do then? Sometimes it feels as if there is no way out or as soon as one obstacle is overcome another arises. How are we suppose to handle trials and tribulations when it is over our heads? As the book of Proverbs declares, trust in God. Acknowledge Him and He will direct our path. God is a sovereign God. Everything that happens to us, He already knows about and has the solution. A lot of times we do not see or know it. I really do not think God is upset…

Trust

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (KJV)

   Trusting in God can be one of the hardest things sometimes. Yet, that is what we are called to do. It is a key aspect of faith. There are times when circumstances may cause us to question everything we know about God. Other times, it may cause us to ask when, why, or how long? We may feel alone or restless. It may even seem as if God does not care but He really does. I have realized in such challenging moments is when the Lord is close to us more than ever. All we have to do is take our eyes off the chaos around us and look to Him. His Word says, He will never leave us nor forsake us.    God never fails. We may not always understand everything we experience but God knows it is for our good. His ways are better and higher. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Life is not always perfect. Situations may not go the way …
