Pray for Those Affected by Harvey!

Please join me in prayer, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST, from wherever you are, as we flood heaven on behalf of everyone affected by Harvey. Pray for lives to be saved, rescue-efforts, food and supplies, shelter and safety, and a quick turnaround. Pray for those that are helping that they will be strengthened for the task ahead of them. With God all things are possible!

Trust God is 1-2-3 Steps!

Have people let you down? Do you find yourself disappointed?  Have situations left you feeling hurt, alone, frustrated, depleted, etc?

It's not a cliche to hear someone say, "trust God".  I used to get upset when I heard this phrase.  I needed to feel better about my situation before I could trust anybody.  I had learned to trust myself and sometimes that was hard. I learned from witnessing ugly things time and time again that not to trust anyone for anything, at all. So no, I couldn't stand being told to "trust God".

Hearing it all of my life and hearing how it helped others didn't help me either.  I was just determined (unknowingly) to distrust God.  Little did I know how it would change my life for the BETTER.
You may be in a place in your life where you would ask, "HOW?"
Talk to God.  The "how" was hard for me.  I had to first learn to tell God all that I was going through.  Yes, He "knows" everything, but the first ste…

8 Ways to Get GOOD Sleep!

Can I brag about God? Thanks to Him, my heavenly Father, I don’t have sleepless nights. He’s been so good to me in this area. Without a formula I’m going to share what I believe will help you. Get your favorite night cap, hopefully it’s water or tea and let’s get some sleep! Read! Yes, read! Read your Bible. Read 1 verse, 1 passage, 1 chapter or a book. Ask God to make each word plain to you. Make sure that you understand what you’ve read. This practice will put you in position to begin your nighttime routine. His Word will comfort you to sleep and provide you with instructions for the next day. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Joshua 1:8 KJV. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalms 119:105 KJVGet Rid of the Problems of the Day! There’s…

Strengthen Me!

Psalm 119:2828 My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. There will be days when we feel beat up.  There are days when the weight of the world is on our shoulders.

It is in those hard times that we must tell God our truth.  We must confess how we really feel.

Lord, I'm hurt.  Lord, I'm tired.  Lord, I don't think I can handle this anymore.

When we pour out our heart to God, we are giving Him access to comfort and strengthen us.  His Word says, that He will NEVER leave us nor forsake us.  His Word says, He uplifts us with His right hand.  His Word says, I have loved you with an everlasting love.  His Word says, cast all of your cares on Me.

I pray that as you go through this weekend that the Word of God strengthens you for whatever and everything that you are facing.

5 Reasons to Have "The Talk"!

AUGUST 8, 2017 BY DEPRESSION NO MORE! 5 Reasons to Have “The Talk”! What talk am I talking about?  Have you talked to God today?  Why am I asking this? Because it is important to ALWAYS pray. Prayer does the following for us: Helps us to get closer to God.Builds our relationship with God.Allows us to clear our minds.Gives us the strength needed to move forward.Praying to God gives us peace of mind.Luke 21:36 (36) Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

He Will Save You!

Do you ever feel like no one can help you? Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in sorrow, pain and troubles? Do you ever feel like no one is on your side? I have felt all of this and so much more.  I’ve felt loneliness to the extent that I carried it around and it felt like a raw and open sore in my stomach.  I longed to be loved, held and taken care of.  While I no longer feel lonely.  I still have the desire to be taken care of.  Sometimes it hurts to care for others , even if you are not looking for a return on your investment, it would feel nice if someone loved on you once in a while. That’s why I thank God for this scripture. When people feel the need to push their ideas on me – the LORD is my judge. When others want me to do things their way – the LORD is my lawgiver. When I am asked to do things outside of the will of God – the LORD is my King! When I feel lost because of everything going on – the LORD will save me!
For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lo…
