Speciality is a distinguishing trait, it sets each of us apart. While praying God said, "We are special in such a unique and different way" Each of us have something to offer to God. He said in Jeremiah 1:5, I knew you before you were formed in the womb. I called you to praise me. What you have been through is in the past and I am using it for your good (Romans 8:28 ). You've been crying day and night but your morning is here (Psalm 30:5). Walk out of your past and step into your future...your transformation (2 Corinthians 15:17). It's time for you to allow into your life what I have already spoken. Only you can stop what I am allowing. Stop speaking death and destruction (Proverbs 18:21). Share this with your family and friends not in this group (2 Corinthians 15: 17-19). THIS IS A MESSAGE OF URGENCY. Blessings and Love to each of you. Watch God move and please share your testimony with us and to be and encouragement. Thanks!!

You are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, purchased by God through Jesus Christ to proclaim God's Excellency, his mercy and grace. God called you out of the darkness of bondage, abuse, rape, low self-esteem and living in another person's shadow. The divorce may or may not have been a result of what you did or did not do. But what I do know is there is no condemnation to those who belong to Christ (Romans 8:1). Those who were purchased through the redemption power of his shed blood and his resurrection power and authority. You ARE NOT a mistake! The marriage may not have been God's plan for you at that season in your life. But God will take all things and work them so that it will benefit you your character, your life and His Kingdom and its manifestation in your life according to Romans 8:28.
Sometimes we allow other people to define us and our self-worth is weighed a lot on other people's opinion of us. God wants to be your definer to show you the unique and essential qualities that he has placed inside of you. He has called each one of us with a unique call and as his blood bought child he has a plan for our lives to give us a future and a hope to declare an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11). Your latter end shall be much better than your past (Job 8:7).
God is a god of progression. When he orders your steps and if you follow him you will be able to see improvement, elevation, progression. Our hope should be built on his love and wisdom for our lives. When we build our relationship with God he will provide instructions and healing to generate wholeness from past abuse, lies, abandonment, mistreatment, imprisonment, divorce, low self-esteem, lack of self worth, unidentifiable presence your own abilities. Many times we feel alone because we have separated from God. We have to make a conscious decision to return to him. He is waiting!
Prayer: Father God I come to you and ask that you help me to lay down all my past hurts (name the ones you remember). I believe that you are a healer and that you want to make me whole. Help me to allow you to elevate my faith and my thinking so that I can experience true freedom and walk in newness of life so I will no longer be a prisoner of negative thoughts and words that have been spoken to me and about me that are contrary to your plan and vision for my life. I thank you in your son's Jesus name Amen!
God made you who you are so you can proclaim who He is!

The Bible says to give honor to where honor is due Romans 13:7. But what does it mean to give honor? What does the word actually mean? There are many definitions of honor according to Websters and other dictionaries but I am fond of the definition “to show merited respect”. Why? Because the person has done something that is worthy of adoration, respect and honor because of their actions toward us and others...their superior standing. We honor many people: parents, family, presidents, celebrities, children, athletes etc. But do we actually take time to give God honor. He sent his son Jesus to pay the ultimate price for our sin and many days go by and we do not thank him or give him the honor that he deserves.
Today is Father’s Day and is set aside on the 3rd Sunday of June to make us think about and take time to honor the men in our lives that helped raise us or our children, the father figures in our lives, the father of our children and our biological father. That is important but we should not forget the ultimate sacrifice that God made for you and I to give us the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ his son.
For God so loved the world that HE GAVE his only begotten SON (JESUS) that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Who wouldn’t want to honor the true and living God who would make such a sacrifice. Who loves us even when we don’t/didn’t love him. How many of us can say that we would love someone and die for them even when they didn’t love us or take time to give us thanks and honor?
When the President of the United States walks in a room every able body person stands regardless of whether they are Democrat, Republican or whether they voted for him or not. We come to attention by standing on our feet to give the position he holds honor. Well if we do this for a man and we should based on Romans 13:1-7 how much more should we give God honor because he holds the highest position in the universe.
Maybe you don’t want to honor God because your earthly father didn’t behave in a way that you think is worthy of honor. Maybe he beat you, your siblings, your mother or maybe he left the family for someone else. But until you are able to forgive that person and give the position they were appointed in your life honor. You will never be free to honor God. You will always view God through the same lens in which you viewed and judged your father, step-father or the man that held the title or position of father regardless of whether he was successful in it or not.
Today I challenge you to remove that lens and see your father through God’s eyes. Forgive him and forgive yourself and begin to strive to live a life of love. It won’t happen overnight but the first step to freedom from the past is repentance and asking God to help you forgive and to move forward. Asking God to help you love those who have hurt you and who you feel are not worthy of your love.
Pray this prayer: God, I come to you seeking help to forgive those who have hurt me. I ask you to help me to forgive myself because I thought I deserved what was done to me in the past and because of my past I have not been able to give you the honor and love that you deserve. I have not been able to love others, myself and you. I believe that you have heard my prayer and from this day forward I believe that you will help me to live a life of forgiveness and love. In Jesus name Amen!
If you prayed the above prayer I would like to hear from you. Please comment or send me an email.

When storms come our way often we feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. It seems that storm after storm, trial after trial. When will it all end? When the disciples were in the boat a great storm arose? The storm came to show them their faith and to prove that Jesus has power over all things including the elements. Matthew 8:23-27
So when a storm comes in your life what do you do? Do you rely on Jesus or do you rely on your own strength, knowledge and power?
Jesus can calm the storms in our lives!
