Let It ALL Go

In the last few months the Lord has been dealing with me about letting some things go in my personal life. He has also been ministering to me about how as believers we hold on to certain things naturally and spiritually that He wants us to release. Sometimes the cycles we go through emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically are due to the fact that we won’t release things. These things can be emotions, past disappointments, relationships, ungodly habits, and so much more. Often times we can’t move forward in an area or God can’t do certain things in our lives because we are still holding on to these old dead things. I ministered this same topic at a recent women’s meeting at my church and felt led to blog about it as well. Continue reading

Being Humble Where God Has You

A lot of times God will have us in a certain place, situation, or season that we don’t really want to be in. We don’t fully see the purpose of us being there and everything in us fights against the place He has us. It could be a season where things don’t look the way you expected, a time were certain needs or desires haven’t been met, an undesirable living situation, or an extended trial. When God has us in these uncomfortable and unwanted places it’s easy to feel like we should be past it, like we should have moved on by now, or like we just deserve better. Continue reading

FAQs: Waiting on God Testimony

Ever since I’ve written my two most popular blog posts, My Waiting on God Testimony and I Believe God Told Me Who My Husband Is, I’ve gotten so many comments and emails from you all asking questions about my process and advice for those going through similar situations. Since I get asked the same kinds of questions, I thought I should go ahead and do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) post. Continue reading

Comparison

What is Comparison

Comparison. That thing we do where we look at our life and someone else’s life and judge ourselves based on what we have/don’t have compared to that person… that thing where we judge ourselves as inadequate because we don’t look like, have, or act like someone else we may admire in a certain area. As people, we compare seasons, relationships, possessions, roles, statuses, and so on. But do we really know the negative consequences it has on our walk with God and how God really feels about it?

When God Interrupts Your Plans

“By age 18 I want to be here…by age 21 I want to be there…by age 25 I want to have this….by age 30 my life should look like that…” Sound familiar? Most of us at some point have mapped out our life and told our self what we should have and where our life should be at certain milestones. Some of those road signs typically include having a degree (bachelor, masters, and/or Ph.D.), a great career, a relationship, owning a house, a car, eventually getting married and then having children. This plan is often shaped by what society and our parents tell us our life should look like. And most of us, if we’re honest, didn’t consult God much when we created this plan, we just thought He would fulfill it because *shrugs* “God wants the best for me and that is the best for me.” (Or so we thought)… Continue reading

What I’ve Learned in 10 Years Of Walking With The Lord

This New Year, 2016, marks 10 years since I gave my life to the Lord! I gave my life to Christ at a New Years Eve service back in December 31, 2005/January 1, 2006 at the moment when the New Year was being rung in. 2006 was my first year of actually living for God. I began reading the Bible because I wanted to and not because I was forced to, I actually started to look forward to going to church, and I started sharing the love of Christ with all my peers that would listen. I was 15 years old and in the 10th grade at the time and my soul was set on fire. Prior to this taking place God allowed a series of things to go wrong in my young life that caused me to come to the end of my rope and pretty much RUN to Him. Continue reading

Eternal Consecration

When most of us hear the word consecration we think it’s something we do for a certain number of days to fast, pray, and seek the Lord. We think it’s something we do from time to time and when it’s over, it’s over. That’s all I thought consecration was too until God began to show me that there’s much more to it than that. Consecration is not just something you do when you go on a major fast; consecration for the true believer is a lifestyle! Once you step into Christ you are eternally consecrated – set aside – to and for Him; totally set aside for the Master’s use and for His use alone. Now don’t get me wrong there is a type of consecration where you get away for a number of days to fast, pray, and really seek the Lord, but that type of consecration ends. But when your heart is eternally consecrated to Christ, this consecration continues forever. Continue reading

Living To Do God’s Will

God's way vs. my way

As believers, it should be our desire to do the will of God for our lives, in every area of our life. Many people have a strong desire to do His will but struggle with finding out what exactly His will for their life is. And there are those who know God’s will for their life but struggle with stepping into it and walking it out. There are specifically unique things that God has planned for each of His children and there are general things that He wills and requires for all of us to live out. So whether you’re walking in God’s will for your life, don’t yet know what His will is for you, or you know but are afraid to walk it out, here is some encouragement for you in your process of living to do the God’s will… Continue reading

Don’t Make Haste

“He that makes haste with his feet sins.” – Prov. 19:2

haste

Have you ever moved on something too quickly because you were anxious, afraid, or thought you had it all figured out without first seeking God only to have that thing fail and crumble? Or have you wanted to do something so bad but didn’t feel peace from God to go ahead and do that thing and didn’t have the patience to wait on God for a reply? Continue reading

My Waiting on God Testimony!

Hi!!!
This is my very first blog post and I am super excited to be starting this new journey!
Since so many people have questions about how to go about having a godly relationship and I am a big advocate of doing relationships God’s way, I thought it’d be best to start by sharing the testimony of how God brought my now husband and I together. I was led by God to write the first part back in March 2013 about 8 months after we got engaged and to share it on the Pinky Promise network and on social media. The second part is the update of how God supernaturally provided for our wedding and how things are going now since we’ve become husband and wife. It was truly a miracle how God brought us together and our testimony has blessed many people so far. I pray that it blesses you as well! Continue reading
