Wake up Sleeper! Praying for Paris

  
This verse has been burning in my spirit all night as I have been praying for Paris, France. My heart is crying out for the world to wake up and see the hope, peace, salvation that only Jesus Christ can bring. As we are praying for France, pray that the eyes of the worlds hearts are opened to see the hope of their callings!

For this reason He says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine as dawn upon you and give you light.” 

Therefore see that you walk carefully living life with honor, purpose, and courage; shunning those who tolerate and enable evil, not as the unwise, but as wise sensible, intelligent, discerning people, making the very most of your time on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence, because the days are filled with evil. Therefore do not be foolish and thoughtless, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is. Do not get drunk with wine, for that is wickedness corruption, stupidity, but be filled with the Holy Spirit and constantly guided by Him

Ephesians 5:14-18

  

Time to Shake off those Grave Clothes – HOPE

There are many times in our life where we want a quick solution and way out. We hate walking through the pain or watching others walk through their own difficulties. God gave me this verse this morning, but it was not what I wanted to hear. I wanted a quick fix and a solution. But when I looked again at the verse I saw the revelation He is teaching me. He wants to guide me in truth, in the Hebrew the word truth here is ba-a-mit-te-ka and means: faithfulness and reliability. If God came to our rescue right away, every single time we would have no reason to have faith. He does not hold out on us to intentionally bring pain but to show us we can always rely on him no matter what, that he will always be here. 
Dont forget what Mary and Martha went through, they thought their brother was Lazarus was dead and gone for good…BUT JESUS WHO IS RICH IN HIS MERCY…. Came and commanded the Dead to Life. Jesus wants to come to you today and command the dead things in your life that you thought would never come to pass TO ARISE!! It is time to shake off the grave clothes and look to your salvation because HE is here. HAVE HOPE AND WAIT UPON HIM WITH EXPECTATION!!!

Hello!!- He Is Doing A New Thing – Don’t You See It!

For those of you who need HOPE awakened inside of you let this verse be your promise, as we forget the past and look forward to what lies ahead, We press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Jesus Christ, is calling us. Phil 3:13-14.

Isaiah 43:18-19 “But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new.See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?I will make a pathway through the wilderness.I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

I love seeing the parallel of the Old Testament and the New Testament in these two promises.

My Favorite Song, Hope’s Anthem! Let your hope be stirred this morning!!

Wait for the Lord

A week of heartbreaking news for many loved ones makes this verse Ring in my soul. God is our hope, our sure foundation. When we are seated in heavenly places with the King of Kings our focus in life must be from God’s perspective down. When we see life through His eyes- THERE IS HOPE. Let the Prince of Peace fill you with His Comfort, Hope and Joy today!

There is a massive firey Title-Wave Coming

A massive title wave is coming, one like I have never seen before. I have seen it building up along the Pacific coast not a typical Tsunami wave but a wave that is twisting and churning and almost like a volcano bright shooting up and spouting off this liquid-fire-water. This wave got bigger and bigger thousands of feet tall, and brighter and brighter and turned and twirled around and spit out bursts of fire-water. It got bigger and bigger and bigger on the coast and then begin to spread starting along the Pacific coast line and across the whole United States. 

As it spread it began to not obliterate what it touched but went inside of every home and every church purifying with water-fire the hearts of those in it. After it’s settled, there was like a ring of fire outlining the United States. With pockets of burning places throughout the country.

Those who refused the purifying left the house and the church. The feeling while looking at this huge Tsunami wave before it crashed on the shore was not a feeling of fear but only curiosity and anticipation. There is no fear in love. The purifying fire of a holy God is 100% love. He does not do it out of hatred but out of love. The character of God never changes. Love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God, he who does not know God does not know love for God is love. 
 
As our ears begin to hear prophetic words by great men and women of God, it is  

essentially important that our hearts understand the love of God even when that love is bringing refinement. To some it will seem like a purifying to another who are not filled with the love of God, they will see it as hatred and prejudice. 

I cannot tell what the physical aspects of this wave will look like or be. I only know it is going to cause a great purifying of the body of Christ. I have no fear just excitement.
 
God Purify Our Hearts
 
Im NOT AFRAID- SHOW ME YOUR GORY
 
 

I DECLARE LIFE IN JESUS NAME!! Receive it

I am declaring a word of LIFE!! HEALING!! WHOLENESS over friends and loved ones tonight. Many friends whose lives are teetering on the edge right now. Friends who’ve had devastating diagnosis given to them by doctors for themselves or their loved ones. Declaring peace love and joy and strength to every family who is struggling watching the loved ones fight the good fight. The stripes of Jesus took on his back at Calvary and the powerful blood that He shed was not only for ourselves salvation but also for healing. Declaring salvation, revelation to your loved ones who do not know the Lord. Declaring a Saul of Tarsus encounter for each one of them. My God is a God of love, and healing even when we do not see the manifestation of that healing it will not change my belief in who God is. Papa God pour out your love peace and healing on everyone who reads this and needs it. I ask Holy Spirit to flood every room, every hospital room where there are those who need a touch. I come against the spirit of death and destruction, the spirit of cancer, and every disease that is taking hold of the lives of those who we know. Jesus took from Satan the keys and gave them back to us as his sons and daughters. We take those keys of death and destruction and declare life Over our loved ones. Thank you Jesus that when we don’t understand that you do not change your mind. It is ALWAYS your will to heal. You are not an abusive father who keeps people bound out of punishment. I break the lie that it is not God’s will to heal. We release the truth that says when two or three are gathered together and ask in faith and not doubting God will heal. And when those who we pray for pass away without receiving your healing we know that no matter what your love never fails us. We ask you to release peace into every situation, understanding and comfort to all those whose families have lost. The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy but Jesus has come to give life and life more abundantly. RECEIVE HIS LIFE today. My God does not change.

Blow on the dreams of others

There is nothing that compares to watching a friend who had no confidence in them-self, after encouragement, blossom and product fruit in the areas of their life where they didn’t think they could ever do it. That is pure joy!

God Said it- I Believe it – That Settles It

My life is held together by God’s promises. There have been so many times in my life where God has spoken so clearly. In those times, I have to make sure I listen because I know I will have a decision to make. I can either take the word or promise He gives me and throw it over my shoulder, or I can stand on His word and believe it with all my heart. So often when I am faced with challenges, I revert back to His words and hold them up to God with Isaiah 55:10-11 in my mind and say, ” God YOU SAID….”. As I do this, a sense of determination comes over me to hold on to His word and promises like it is oxygen.

What do you think God’s response is?? I believe it is pride in His daughter standing on His word and realizing she is going to make it. He showers down strength, love, hope and peace. I am then energized and refocused on the solution and the answer to what I am crying out for. When we stand in a place of prayer declaring what God is already in the process of doing, we are pulling our future into our present. We don’t have to see the tangible answer in front of us, we need to see the promise God has made and hold Him to HIS word that what He has said He will do. As we align our hope to our faith it propels us into our destiny faster than if we just sit and wait for it to happen.

My husband spoke to the Fathers on Father’s Day last year at Destiny Christian Fellowship. It was a powerful word talking about us having to give God something for Him to work with. Here is the link to his message: We are made in His Awesome Image.

I know without a doubt that my husband and I would not be in the place we are in, especially with a growing and thriving business if we did not take a hold of God’s promises and declare them in the hard times. We give Him all the glory for the things He has done, what He is doing and what He will do!!

Release the Fire in your Bones

At Destiny Christian Fellowship we are so blessed to be able to release the “Fire in our Bones”. Thank you (dad) Pastor Joel Hjertstedt for setting an atmosphere of freedom and release in our church. I spoke with a woman yesterday at the Woman’s meeting who could not believe the freedom of the Holy Spirit at Destiny. It was only her 2nd week. Church- dont let it end as you walk out the door- Spread that passion and fire in every outlet God gives you. DONT WEAR YOURSELF OUT BY KEEPING IT IN!!

Angels encamp around us! Thank God for protection

On Sunday my husband was heading out with my 11 year old son and some friends to go kayaking. Allowing him to do that has been a step of faith, especially as he wants to push his limits every time. Sunday was his birthday weekend, 60* degrees in January to boot, excellent time to go for a short trip.
On the way down our street a paddle flew out the back of the truck bed, he turned quickly to see what happened, then THIS Happened

IMG_3589

The verse, “the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him”, came to mind as he told me there was an accident. The three in the truck had to climb out the window, but praise God all the windows were still in tack. They went to the shop and drove the forklift down the road to pull the truck out. Everyone was fine, but the truck needs some major work.

In those moments there are so many emotions that go through your head. For me it was the fact that all along our road is a steep cliff. There are only a couple places where there is solid ground on the left. They hit the last ditch possible without the cliff. God protected me husband, son and friend. The thought came to mind, what if God was actually protecting them from something worse that could have happened on the River that day. We never want an accident to happen. But, that day, I was thanking God nothing worse happened. Not a scratch on their body.

I am one thankful wife and mother. As I was praying today for a family who has to give testimony in a criminal case, I had to find pictures to declare over them. These were my favorite ones.

In this last picture below that most all of us have seen, you will notice the missing plank on the bridge. See, God could have filled in the hole, but he didn’t. He said “I will give my angels charge over you to protect you in all your ways”. We will still have scary situations in our lives, but God will send help for you always.

Praying that God gives you peace and rest as you walk through this life with him. Blessings to you!!
