Passionate pursuit 

Standard

Passion is significant fuel that helps you persevere despite obstacles,  fear, and discouragement.  If you are passionate about a goal,  you can tap into that passion as a source of energy that will see you through to the finish line.  Valorie Burton, Why Not You? 

Prayer: Lord,  may our passion be seen and not just heard as we runderstand towards completing what we have started.  May we be ever present in our everyday lives,  working and pursuing what you have placed on our hearts. In Jesus name,  we pray Amen. 

Grace and Peace, 

Mary

Don’t let your dream die

Standard
 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 (NLT)
dream

I want to speak to those of you that have stopped dreaming. You have had setbacks. You have encountered disappointment. You have been told it won’t work.

I say to you DREAM AGAIN! There is still hope for YOU! Yes, there is still time for YOU to make it happen. It starts with YOU believing in what God has already given YOU. He planted the dream in your heart. God is so faithful to help YOU carry out every aspect of that dream.

Have you submitted your dream to Him?
Will you allow that dream to die, so that God can resurrect it?

Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies, it will not grow. Take a moment and surrender your thoughts about how it is supposed to be. Surrender control over every aspect of that dream. Give God permission to work in YOU His plan and purpose for your dream. You are apart of a greater plan.

That dream YOU have, once it is released, will begin to transform the lives of others. The world awaits what God has placed in you. It’s time to GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO DREAM AGAIN!

Father, revive the hearts of those that have stopped dreaming because of disappointments and set backs. Restore to them the vigor they once had about the plan and the purposes you have already established in their hearts. May they be strengthened in their inner man to await the promise of fruition. Even as it is written in Ecclesiastes 3:11, you have made all things beautiful in its time. I thank you for restoration of hope even now. In Jesus name Amen

Shalom,

Mary

Take Rest..

Standard

God has not overlooked you.

He is still at work making you and me into the vessels He desires us to be. Release the weight of the vision to Him, the anxiety and the “how tos” of accomplishing it all.

Trust Him to lead you to His expected end.

time1

Take rest in Him as you await His perfect timing.

Father, teach us how to come to you and rest today. Your thoughts towards us are good and not evil. We can trust our lives, our visions, our dreams to you for safe keeping. Everything that we have committed to your hands you are able to uphold and bring it to full fruition. May we come to you and lay every burden down today and rest in your unfailing love.

Grace and Peace,

Mary

Destiny Distractions

Standard

 

We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith. The one who made the promise is faithful. Hebrews 10:23 (GW)

This is not the time nor the place to give up. This is not the time to get distracted from your place of destiny. Too often we allow people, situations, disappointments to distract us from our place of destiny.  I encourage you today to hold on and never give up! Keep praying. Keep fighting. Keep believing. Your breakthrough is at hand. Your destiny is too important to give up for anything!

Father, strengthen my sisters and brothers that are reading this today. Help them to hold on to your promises.  Help them to holdfast to their faith. Help them to keep believing even when it seems impossible. You are a God of your Word and you will bring to past everything you promised.  Help them to fight through the temptations and the urge to give up.  Teach us all how to recognize our “destiny distractions”  in order to see the place of purpose you have for us. In Jesus name, Amen

Grace and Peace be upon you,

Mary

Moving Forward

Standard

Exodus 14:15-17  (AMP) The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry to Me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward! 16 Lift up your rod and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the Israelites shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. 17 And I, behold, I will harden (make stubborn and strong) the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall go [into the sea] after them; and I will gain honor over Pharaoh and all his host, his chariots, and horsemen.

“Why do you cry to me?” was one of the first things that caught my attention in these verses. First of all, Moses wasn’t the one that was crying out- it was the children of Israel.  He responded to their cries through Moses.  How often have we gotten to a place that looked impossible in the natural and panicked and the Lord had to allow someone else to come to you and prompt you to move forward?  

Notice, His instructions were for them to go forward. Go forward not knowing what the outcome would be; they were trapped on every side. He also told Moses to use the authority He had already given him by way of the rod.  This is so awesome because the Lord has placed in each of us the authority and the faith we need to carry out the orders and the plans He has for us. We have within us the boldness and the power to proceed. It is not based on our own strength but on His. 

The second thing to pay attention to is God’s plans for the Egyptian army. There are times we are faced with challenges or enemies to our destiny on every side. It is often through those obstacles that the Lord increases us, blesses us, and promotes us. When we allow His perfect work to be done, He destroys what is hindering us.

Lord thank you that every enemy we face is not greater than you.  Thank you for overshadowing us with your love and your grace. You are our rock, our salvation, our strength, our peace, provision, and so much more. May we begin to recognize your grace is available to us daily.  May we come to know that you have our best interest at heart and no matter what we face you have already planned our way to victory. In Jesus name Amen

 

Grace and Peace,
