When God doesn’t answer

What do you do when God doesn’t answer you the way you expected? Keep. Trusting. God. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us: 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (KJV) That kind of faith we need is: “an inherent trust and enduring confidence in God’s power, His wisdom and His goodness.” In other words, in order to do what Proverbs 3:5-6 says, in order to trust God deeply, our f

Too Heavy!

I had a long talk with the Lord. It was an intense conversation. I was mad, frustrated, tired, drained and feed up! He listened while I complained. He listened patiently as I criticized how things are not going the way I think they should go. He quietly listened to me sulk about how I’m tired of this and feed up with that. He tolerated my grumbling as I questioned, “When, Lord? How long, Lord? Why Lord?” He listened as I cried, “This is too heavy! It’s too much! I’m ready to

Deep Trust

When I was finding it difficult to accept an answer God had given, He brought me to one of my favorite Scripture passages, Proverbs 3:5-6. Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Christ Take Over!

I want to give a shout-out, encouragement, and send prayers to you who are ready to give up. I speak blessings upon you who are contemplating throwing in the towel.

Are you ready to give up because He has not taken away that sickness, handicap, weakness, difficulty, relationship or whatever it is that’s causing you hardships? I’m praying that you don’t quit. Would you believe that your suffering

A Mother’s Prayer

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. (Prov. 22:6, NLT) Oh, Lord, as mothers, we humbly come to You today. Lord, we want to thank You for our children. Thank You for allowing us to be a mother. Thank You for giving us this assignment, for we know it’s not an easy job nor should we take this job lightly. Thank You for believing in us and trusting us with such wonderful gifts. Our children are gifts from You. Help us to cheri

Just Pray – National Day of Prayer

When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. The priests could not enter the temple of the Lord because the glory of the Lord filled it. When all the Israelites saw the fire coming down and the glory of the Lord above the temple, they knelt on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord, saying, “He is good; his love end
