Calm the Storm

Sometimes the storm is raging in the atmosphere or in your home. Maybe the storm is in your checkbook or on the medical chart, but whatever and wherever it is, give it to God and rest in His ability. Rest in His ability to get it done and work it out. Be sure not to give instructions or perhaps even preferences on how and why. He’s the Master and we are to trust God no matter what!

Early this year God spoke to me for 2016 with that very phrase, and yesterday I had to lean into that truth as a storm raged within. I had outside circumstances that sent me into a thought pattern of distraught what ifs. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit rescued me, again. The still small voice was faint and clear, “I will calm the storm.” Can you believe that’s all it took?! Believe it. I was as peaceful as a baby in her mother’s arm with my soul (mind, will and emotions) at rest in His ability.

I’m not sure what you’re facing in this hour though I know that our God is enough. He has everything you need to get through. Don’t let the devil beat you up. Put a smile on your face because you have a blessing to share. Look up my brother and sister! God is working it out, and through the process you’ll grow in faith and wisdom.

As a minister, I pray over you Colossians 1:9-12. “…that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.”

Faith Hope Courage

It's time to put feet to the message in my heart that's been burning since early February.

Faith   Hope   Courage

A message of hope to those afflicted with sickness, facing trials, or in the chasm of despair.

In my own personal struggles I have found that these three elements have been the sustaining factor in which I can carry on in spite of circumstances, disappointments, or when life happens in any season.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Matthew 17:20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Romans 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Psalm 27:13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.

What excitement awaits in sharing His love and faithfulness with #FaithHopeCourage.
