Let’s Be Real……

Sometimes you just have to call a demon a demon, an unclean spirit an unclean spirit, a stronghold a stronghold.  Call it what is so your healing and deliverance can manifest. Let’s talk about denial in the context of these stumbling blocks.  Denial is what keeps us bound as Christians.  We aren’t perfect just because we have repented of our sins and come unto repentance.  God is perfecting us daily….day by day, glory to glory.  So with that being said, we must realize each and every day that we NEED God to fix us, AGAIN & CONTINUOUSLY.  Fix our minds, hearts, attitudes and emotions.  I’m learning that my thought processes outside of God are just WHACK!!  But because He loves me and I love Him, I welcome His correction..sometimes haha.

I do realize if my desire is to be with Him in eternity there is work for me to do here on earth first.  The work starts within, my inner healing.  I can’t expect to be great in God with a foul heart and life, that’s a recipe for death.

Denial is the act of declaring something untrue.  Denial prevents you from healing, forgiving and loving.  As you can see, denial prevents you from being obedient to God’s word, that’s a sin.  But because God is the God of creation, He already knows our hearts and faults.  He knows what we need and is more than willing and capable of solving ALL the problems, hurts and harms we have or will have in this life.

When we don’t admit we have unforgiveness in our hearts towards someone we hinder our relationship and progression with God.  Denial makes you hold on to things you should let go.  Denial makes you think your bad behavior is justified.

Let me be more specific and personal.  I have been battling with my weight since my thirties.  I wasn’t an obese child or teenager. But once I hit my 30’s baaaabbbby, it’s just been an up and down rollercoaster ride: exercise, eat healthy, loose weight then something in life would happen and I would forfeit all that only to return to bad eating habits and no exercise….weight gain resumes.  Well the last month or so the light bulb finally went off.  God is sooo gracious!  He answers prayers and knows what every tear shed means.  I asked God to show me the root cause of my problem.  I couldn’t keep doing this, I needed off this ride ASAP.  Suddenly the scriptures about gluttony became real to me.  “Yes Boo, you have an issue with food.  you have been using food as a crutch instead of trusting God…making food my idol…sinning!”

So, what did I do after this divine revelation…I confessed (accepted my issue) the problem then I asked God to forgive me for making food an idol.  That’s what the spirit of gluttony is ..overeating, overindulgence, looking for comfort in something outside of God.  All this was affecting the temple God has blessed me with.”  Then I found scriptures, wrote them out, googled gluttony and found a Christian article addressing the very thing I was struggling with that gave me more insight and more scriptures to aide in my healing.  God will heal and direct you to success.  The healing didn’t come weeks later but He gave me an immediate release.  I felt my heart and mind change immediately towards food more specifically junk food: chips are the devil…for me anyway… haha.

The spirit of gluttony is sneaky.  Stop saying “oh, I’m just an emotional eater” that’s not ok.  God can control your emotions, stresses and worries….we just have to trust Him and give Him our problems.  He wants them, He wants to show us what He can do in our lives, He wants us to draw closer to Him and not things of this world, especially not FOOD!  He has already defeated the enemy so we just need to walk in it.

Whatever untruth (stronghold), demonic spirit, hurt, pain, or unforgiveness you are harbouring, GIVE IT TO GOD!!  If He has revealed it to you surely He is ABLE to deliver you from it.  He doesn’t show us things and say “ok, you handle that and let me know when your done.”  NO, He is saying give it to me so you can be set free, grow in Me, know another level in Me, spread My love through your healing and give Him the glory.

Don’t let denial keep you from the blessings of God.  Don’t let denial keep you in bitterness and self righteousness.  Don’t let denial keep you blaming someone else and not taking responsibility for your own actions.  Don’t let denial keep you from GOD!!

Peace and Blessing My Cyberloves..The Journey CONTINUES!!!

WHO IS GOD TO ME??

WHO IS GOD TO ME?? Let me answer that using only words to songs or song titles…..

God is my everlasting God in Him I move and breathe.  He is my alpha and omega ordering my steps in His word.  He is bigger than the universe or anything that could harm or tear me apart.  His love is greater than my mind could imagine or comprehend.  God changed my life through His blood shed way back on Calvary that flowed then, is now and forever more.  Our relationship makes me want more of Him, to be filled to overflowing with His presence.  His love and ways still amaze me daily.  I can come boldly to the throne of grace and lay my sins, problems, worries and stresses on the alter where He will meet my needs and give me comfort.  On my knees is where I understand Him and life.  I live, move and have my being in Christ alone because His love for me is so great.  I know I’m nothing without Him.  He is the source and strength of my life.  He is my joy and my hallelujah belongs only to Him.  He is the only source of my life and salvation.  The great I Am is always moving and working on my behalf…He is the air in my lungs, the wind beneath my wings, the footsteps I strive to follow because He orders my steps.  He is the Spirit that lives in me.  I owe Him all the glory, praise and honor but if I had 10,000 tongues that wouldn’t be enough praise.  So glad He smiles at my purity in praise and worship to Him…it makes Him smile!!  His presence and power are heaven to me.

I have realized God is my all and all.  He is the joy and strength of my life, He removes all pain, misery,  and strife.  He promises to keep me never to leave, He never never turns back on HIs word.  If I have fast and pray, stay in the narrow way, keep my life clean everyday, He promises to keep me never to leave, He never never turns back on His WORD….God IS MY ALL AND ALL!!

WHO IS GOD TO YOU???

Continuing the LOVE……

Let’s not get it twisted the LOVE festival I have going on didn’t stop on Valentine’s Day.  It continues to grow stronger and stronger every day.  Yes, I’m loving on me.  The new me is soooo much better than the old me so loving me is easier now, LOL.  That’s what God will do with your life..make you lovable.

I refuse to be in Christ and bound by the things He delivered me or forgave me when I gave Him my life.  That makes absolutely NO SENSE!!  But we know the enemy, people and ourselves will have us still harping on old hurts and pains and problems and issues and stresses and ….you get my point.  Well as I said in a previous post, “ain’t nothing in my past but lessons learned.”  My present and future are bright and God-centered.  But let me say this, I believe the only time to look at my past is to remember where and how far God has brought me: my healing, deliverances, and growth.  When my mind tries to make me think negatively about myself, God or my faith, I can just go to the arsenal of memories and experiences I have with God to see His goodness, grace and mercy in my life and it continues daily.

I am not my past, I am not a victim of violence or abuse, I am not a poor decision maker in relationships, I am not sick and diseased, I am not ruled my emotions, I am not plagued by generational or word curses spoken by me or others, I am not desperate, anxious, worried or hopeless in my singleness, I am not a poor steward of the blessings God has given me and I am not an enemy of God..you see where I’m going with this right?  Whatever the enemy brings to your mind don’t listen…change it upon him!  If he says I am, I say I am NOT (yes, those are lyrics to a song by Jekayln Carr).

What I do tell myself is I’m a child of the Most High God, forgiven of my sins and have come unto repentance which makes me no longer bound to satan, his mind games and his attacks (yes, he can come for me but he is up against a greater POWER).  I have the power of the Holy Spirit which is God living inside me to fight for me, strengthen me, love me, guide me, provide for me, grow me and protect me.  He calls me friend and daughter for my faithfulness and obedience.  I am more than a conqueror, I AM VICTORIOUS.  I am fearfully and wonderfully made in His image, I’m His handiwork in the making–a new creation called into His royal priesthood….all because He died for me and I said yes.  THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL!!

My life IN Christ shouldn’t look like my life outside of Christ nor should any child of God.  Trials, tests and tribulations will come…I’ve been told that’s just life..haha…but Christians have Someone working directly on their behalf to ensure our victory not defeat.  So allow God to continue to love on you, you on Him and watch things change, watch your outlook change, see your praise and worship increase…..see the most important  relationship you could EVER have fulfill your needs and life.

Tell yourself “I AM______” Use God’s word and vision to fill in the blank(s).  Speak positives into your situations or struggles.  God=LOVE=POSITIVES

PEACE AND BLESSINGS until next time!!!

HAPPY “NEW” VALENTINES DAY, 2018

I love me some me!! I’m not being vain but glad in God.  He has given me new life, joy, happiness, peace, confidence, and LOVE.  My old self is dying day by day…THANK GOD!!  There is nothing in my past but lessons learned.  I’m choosing daily to live with the hope of Christ because I can’t afford to look back with regret or wishing for something or somebody that isn’t for me.  I can’t live with a ‘what if’ mentality.  I choose to look forward knowing my present and future is in God’s hand and my continued obedience to His plans will bring forth purpose in my life.

You may ask what all this has to do with Valentines Day.  Well, I no longer dread this day. I welcome it!!  I can look at couples and be happy for their love, learn from them and not desperately long for the day I’ll be booed up..lol.  Yes, it’s coming but I’m moving full speed ahead with loving and living a Christian life….not missing out on what God has planned for me NOW at this point in time.  This is such a wonderful place to be in life for me…PURPOSE, peace, love, joy and happiness that only my Savior can provide sooooo HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO ME!!!

Learn to date yourself, live, travel, SOCIALIZE, pray, praise, worship, study the Word….WHATEVER!!! JUST LIVE A GODLY LIFE regardless of relationship status..it is fulfilling and fun.

I pray you open your heart to God and allow Him to show you His AMAZING LOVE!!  None can compare to it…EVER!!  He is love and life everlasting.  Everything we need is in Him.  He will provide ALL things according to HIs will and purpose for us. FOR REAL!!

Blessings and Peace MyCyber Loves!!  Enjoy your New Valentines Day, 2018!!

Love and History…………

February is the month of love and black history.  For me, this is more focused on my love and history with the ultimate mate.  Our history goes way way back, farther back than I can remember and from what the Bible tells me way before my parents knew me.  When you really think about this concept, it’s really mind blowing and comforting–HOPEFUL!

My ultimate mate is God and He loved and orchestrated my history: past, present and future.  I’m coming into the realization that God is my all and all.  He shows me His love daily, even when I didn’t want or realize it…He was showing me.  He shows me how to love Him back by being grateful, thankful, praising, worshipping and following His commands and precepts.  He is showing me how to love me.  No-one can love me like God and me.  He shows me my value and worth.  He has my best interest at heart, ALWAYS!!  I didn’t know the magnitude of my self hatred and doubt until I started developing a closer relationship with Him, my love.  The depth of revelation He can show you about yourself is heart and life changing.  As He continues to love on me and I on Him, then and only then can I really love on others as He commands.  No sense in wishing and hoping for relationships, yes I mean marriage, if your brokenness hasn’t been fixed and you can’t see your own faults, strengths, and purpose….that’s cray cray!!

On this journey of living life as a single Christian, I’m choosing to allow God to love me, heal me and open my heart to the right people so that my history is purposeful.  I desire to love and be loved like God has ordained in His word and so should you.  I think it’s imperative to love in this order: love God, love yourself and love people.  This is the recipe for my life’s success.  God is love and what better example of what love and history should look like than following God’s lead and plan.  Open up your heart to the right kind of love…GOD’S LOVE…everything else will fall into place.  Trust Me, I know!!

PEACE AND BLESSINGS My CyberLOVES!!
