Pick Up Your Faith

God shared this last word for the day so I must release it because somebody needs to read it but only read it if you will read the following Scripture first:

2 Kings 6 (GODโ€™S WORD version)

โ€œThe disciples of the prophets said to Elisha, โ€œThe place where weโ€™re staying is too small for us. 2 Letโ€™s go to the Jordan River. Each of us can get some logs and make a place for us to live there.โ€

Elisha said, โ€œGo ahead.โ€

3 Then one of the disciples asked, โ€œWonโ€™t you please come with us?โ€

Elisha answered, โ€œIโ€™ll go.โ€

4 So he went with them. They came to the Jordan River and began to cut down trees. 5 As one of them was cutting down a tree, the ax head fell into the water. He cried out, โ€œOh no, master! It was borrowed!โ€

6 The man of God asked, โ€œWhere did it fall?โ€ When he showed Elisha the place, Elisha cut off a piece of wood. He threw it into the water at that place and made the ax head float. 7 Elisha said, โ€œPick it up.โ€ The disciple reached for it and picked it up. โ€œ

Somebody out there reading this right now is crying out in their heart and soul ๐Ÿ—ฃOh God this place Iโ€™m in in my marriage, I CANโ€™T STAY HERE I CANโ€™T LIVE HERE ANYMORE!โ€ Youโ€™re looking around at the hurt and suffering youโ€™ve endured and the walls of the valley seem to be closing in on you as the difficulties seem to be growing larger and crowding you out.

I know youโ€™re looking and searching for more room to get away from the pain closing in. I will walk with you in your journey to the River Jordan. Youโ€™re ready to cross over from this place of suffering to your promised land where your marriage is restored.

Iโ€™ll walk with you. You have work to do to get ready to cross over to reach your promised land. Some of you have already been working. Youโ€™ve believed God for more and have been laboring, chopping away โ€”praying, fasting, declaring Godโ€™s Word. Youโ€™ve been working hard ๐Ÿ˜“ striving and looking at your efforts and performance and you have managed to lose your EDGE YOUR CUTTING EDGE YOUR FAITH!!!! Your ax head FAITH HAS SLIPPED OFF! You are not certain how you lost your faith with all the sweat and tears you have been putting into relocating your marriage closer to the promised land!

(LOOK AT JESUS.)

Tell Him that youโ€™ve lost your faith. He knows itโ€™s borrowed because it is not of our own striving that we have faith but by Godโ€™s grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).

I am here with you by the grace of God in your blessed marriage journey on Facebook, and I am asking you, Where did you lose your faith? Where did it fall?

I want you to go to the Lord in prayer after reading this post and tell Him where you began to doubt and where you lost your cutting edge FAITH. The Lord is going to give me a piece of wood โ€”a word to follow this that is going to confirm to you something He wants you to see.

The Lord Jesus is going to cause YOUR FAITH THAT YOU LOST to float ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Declare Your New Season

Good morning fellow Godโ€™s children ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค— Catch this ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฆ…

Isnโ€™t it worth noting how suddenly the seasons will change! We look at our calendars and mark by our timetable to declare that it is Summer, Spring, Winter, or Fall. We look at the weather outside and remark on how it doesnโ€™t line up with what we say the season is! For example, when it became Fall on our calendars, we noticed the sun still lingered as if it was still yet summertime. Then, we notice a change that happens seemingly overnightโ€”SUDDENLY! Right?! Amen! The weather outside begins to line up with the season that has been declared. Suddenly thereโ€™s frost on the windshields in the mornings instead of wet dew on the ground! You follow me? Look at the season you are in with regards to your marriage. What have you declared about your season? Are you determining your season by what it looks likeโ€”your marriage weatherโ€”what your eyes see in the natural about your circumstances and relationship with your spouse? You must begin to see with eyes of FAITH. Before the leave fall off the trees all of a sudden, there is an unseen process that has taken place. An unseen chemical change has occurred within the tree itself and itโ€™s leaves that cause them to change colors to indicate change is coming. Glory to God! Somebody get this!๐Ÿ”ฅ You may notice the changes but whether you do or not, it is happening and the lead will die and fall all of a sudden as it lines up with the declared season of Fall.

I DECLARE that GOD is resurrecting and bringing forth to life what has been ailing or dying in my marriage. I declare that at the PROPER SEASON, instead of dry places, instead of a wilderness THERE WILL SUDDENLY BE RAIN. An outpouring and overflow of love, grace, mercy, joy, peace and prosperity in my marriage IN JESUSโ€™ NAME.

I DECLARE THAT AS I WAIT ON GOD, I AM NOT PRESSED FOR TIME BY MY CLOCK AND CALENDAR for 2 Peter 3:8 Voice and verse 9 Amp. says โ€œDonโ€™t imagine, dear friends, that Godโ€™s timetable is the same as ours; as the psalm says, for with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like one day. 9 The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, โ€œ. I praise God๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ that He is FAITHFUL to watch over His Word (Jeremiah 1:12). BY FAITH I LINE UP MY DECLARED SEASON WITH GODโ€™S WORD.

From this season forward, I shall only declare the season of my marriage by faith rather than what my eyes behold. If it is cold, I shall PUT ON THE FULL ๐Ÿ›กARMOR ๐Ÿ›กOF GOD. If it is favorable or hot, I shall PUT ON THE FULL ๐Ÿ›กARMOR๐Ÿ›ก OF GOD! I am equipped by God no matter the climate I feel in my marriage. BY FAITH WHAT I SPEAK SHALL LINE UP WITH GODโ€™S REPORT. For GOD DOES WHAT HE SAYS!

โ€œSo it is when I declare something.

My word will go out and not return to Me empty,

But it will do what I wanted;

it will accomplish what I determined. (Isaiah 55:11 Amp.)

Marriage Without Jesus

A marriage without the Cross is a marriage at its crossroadsโ€”facing hopelessness without Jesusโ€”because God created marriage beginning with the imperfect man Adam and Eve just so that His Son Jesus who came as the only perfect Man could save us and show us how love is really done! A marriage without Jesus faces the crossroads where human frailty and sin meet the trials and temptations the enemy designed to take us out and destroy the marriage! We cannot face and win the battle at the crossroads without the POWER OF CHRIST! Every marriage needs Jesus because when we stand at the crossroads of trials and face darkness and hopelessness, we need Him to stand beside us to empower us and drive away the enemy! Every marriage needs Jesus especially at its crossroads so we can learn to NOT GIVE UP OR FIGHT IN OUR FLESH IN OUR OWN POWER!!! So we learn how to persevere and STAND AND WALK IN THE POWER AND ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT SO AT THE CROSSROADS…..we CROSS OVER!!! We overcome by the power of the Blood of Jesus and we possess victory in the land in our marriage because of His finished work!!! AMEN GLORY TO GOD!!!!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Let God Lead You Through Difficulties

I want to share my blessing to the glory of God because He is the one who made it happen! For almost 2 weeks, my client has been hospitalized. This meant no pay for me. The enemy had me wondering why would God let your job fall apart like this so you are back to one income just as when your husband was in boot camp? I had already decreed and God confirmed several times that my season of suffering had ended. It was so silent yโ€™all and I mean quiet. I didnโ€™t hear from God. I just continued to wonder in my mind and I felt frustration growing. A lady in a Facebook group messaged me to share a video with me and it was about how Jesus loved Barabbas enough to let him go free and take his sin when He willingly went to the cross to die for us all. I thought about how many times I sin and Jesus is there waiting for me to give it to Him and repent so I can be free out of His great love for me. Even now I just tear up because God made His love for me real present and felt when I watched that video and I thought about how Jesus couldโ€™ve left us all to die in sin and bondage. The awareness of Godโ€™s love led me to seek Him rather than withdraw during this difficult time of unknowns with my job. He helped me to realize that all of the things Iโ€™d prayed about concerning my job, Heโ€™d taken into consideration. He had me see a post that said Maybe everything is falling apart because God is putting something better together for you! I grabbed hold of that and said I trust You God! Itโ€™s uncomfortable having what you think is your provision and security taken away from you. I donโ€™t believe that God was happy my client became sick but I know He knew it would happen and already went before me to pave the way for me to get through this patch of income loss and job uncertainty. In the past few months Iโ€™d been praying God would lead me to a job where I can begin a career that I would absolutely love and make a difference in peopleโ€™s lives. I prayed to God about not having benefits and about positioning me where my integrity would be valued and rewarded. God really was listening to me….. Yesterday the other aide who works with my client called me and told me she took a turn for the better and is improving drastically. Prayer works!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ This morning I saw an email from yesterday inviting me to call for an interview for a position that I was told last week was filled. I went to the interview and felt so joyful on the way thereโ€”so happy! I was asked to take the last assessment and so did that. During the interview she looked at my scores and remarked at how exceedingly well my score of 27 is and said that most candidates couldnโ€™t even reach a 20. Iโ€™m so grateful and in tears because God showed me just how much He listens and loves me. I was offered the position today and it offers paid nursing training in just a couple of months that will result in a wonderful pay raise!!! Iโ€™ll be able to continue to work with the elderly in a nursing home! I prayed during this past week and mentioned to God that I love working with elderlyโ€”this field of work!!! Glory to God! He made it happen!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™ll be eligible for benefits and vacation time and such! Iโ€™m just so thankful and thrilled that God did this for me and my family! I want to encourage you who may be going through difficulties whether job or marriage-related to not give up on God and on being a woman of God. Pass your test by holding on to Godโ€™s hand. God truly loves us and is with us. He does not leave us to die in calamity. Stay in Christ and do not be moved by circumstances because He is our Rock๐Ÿ› He commands the waves ๐ŸŒŠ of the storm to still and He can create a new thing for you just when you thought all was lost. The same way He has blessed me, He can bless you too ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’

Bedroom Battlefield


I would be remiss to not say this with care and utmost respect. Our marriage beds can be the area of our marriages where oftentimes the war is conceded–on the losing end to the gain and spoil of the enemy rather than to the glory of God– as husbands and wives fight the wrong battles. Holy marriage ground is defiled when a spouse engages in adultery, sexual immorality, as well as, sexual rebellion or manipulation. There are husbands and wives who refuse to make love to their spouses because they do not feel like actively participating in helping them to create a fulfilling sex life. Many fall prey to their own feelings and believe and trust what they feel–feelings that they are either not desirable at all or less desirable than what society says is what makes a person desirable; Feelings of inadequacy that they cannot fulfill their spouse; misguided feelings that a passionate marriage bed involves degrading experience that is reflective of worldly love for pornography; feelings that they can control or get their way by being manipulative and withholding sex out of vengeance or anger. Don’t allow the enemy to gain a foothold in your marriage bed. Marriage is honorable and God intends for a couple to lovingly, unselfishly, passionately, honorably, devotedly, physically manifest His spoken Word that the husband and wife are indeed one-flesh. That brings glory to God! Sexual intimacy between a husband and wife is powerful spiritual work. Their flesh joins to communicate between their souls the unseen power and the Holy Spirit can help them to heal, mend some things that talking just can’t do! The Holy Spirit can move within them and through them to help them grow closer –more tightly-knit and God can rekindle the places that are neglected or broken down in their marriage bed. When there are intimacy problems, the enemy will bring temptation along. Instead of becoming a player, remain steadfast and faithful as a wife or husband of PRAYER. Prayer can move the dust off the marriage bed and shake the cobwebs from each corner. God can bring dead things back to LIFE! If you need God to do this for you, just invite Him to help you and HE WILL! Lord God ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Give husbands a desire that is for and only quenched by their own wives! Let them quench their sexual desires only in their wives’ cistern. Let each husband and wife feel the flames of passion burn brightly for their spouses and a willingness to bring you glory in their marriage beds. Keep temptations far from us and deliver spouses of anything or anyone that prevents them from having an honorable marriage bed that is glorious and fulfilling. Teach and show all spouses how to love one another with the enjoyment you intend for us. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Hebrews 13:4, KJV~ “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

Beautiful Love

What a beautiful illustration of the Bridegroom with His bride! 

A husband is to love his wife as Jesus loves the church His bride. His love in demonstration involved sacrificing His very life as a Man. A husband must sacrifice his will and desires that conflict with God’s will. A husband who embraces and obeys God’s will sees his wife beyond her flaws. He sees her as being who God says she is by faith (Ephesians 5:25-30). By faith, he will speak God’s Word over her and cherish her as his blessed partner in life. He will submit his will out of reverence to Christ, longing to bring out of her the best. A husband who follows Jesus’ example is concerned with her edification instead of self-gratification. In a godly marriage, their love is a dance of delight and continual yearning for one another– a yearning to love, to learn, to sharpen, to grow, to bring God the glory. A wife is to trust that where her husband leads her in their dance of love, like Jesus she must trust that God is in control (Eph. 5:22-23). By surrendering her need for control over the outcome of her husband’s leadership, she can relax her grip, throw her head back and smile at the future because Jesus is King of kings (Proverbs 31:25). The dance of love in a godly marriage is a beautiful choreography that glorifies God–full of reliance on the Lord, honor, grace, joy, humility, believing the best in one another (1 Cor. 13:7), patience, compassion, gentleness, kindness, strength to endure trials together with prayer and so much more.

Beauty for Ashes

Have you ever watched a house burn down to the ground? When I was a young girl, I along with a crowd in my neighborhood watched as a house aflame blazed down to the ground. Firefighters rained water from a nearby hydrant to no avail. At first they worked tirelessly and then seemed to give up. They let it burn and stood watch to prevent it from spreading. We listened to the flames crackle. Hours later there remained the rubble of what was once a home and of course, ashes.

When a marriage is dying, it is like a burning relationship. The flaming darts of the enemy have hit their targets and a host of other factors contribute to the marriage going down in flames. But God! The ashes that remain—God can take those ashes and give beauty for ashes. God can give an unexpected good future and restore the joy that was stolen. Instead of your shroud of mourning, God is replacing it with a veil of joy that shall cover you with His favor. Your spouse shall see it upon you with the eyes of his heart and once again, you will know the beauty of love together again. The beauty of a marriage burned to the ground is that ONLY GOD CAN restore it. The immensity of that fact is only God is qualified to take what the enemy meant to destroy and kill a marriage and use it to resurrect that marriage so that it bring Him glory ๐Ÿ’

Isaiah 61 Jubilee version ~

61 ” The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to preach good tidings unto those who are cast down; to bind up the wounds of the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those that are bound;

2 to proclaim the year of the LORDโ€™s favour, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 to order in Zion those that mourn, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

4 ยถ And they shall build the old wastes; they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall restore the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD; men shall call you the Ministers of our God; ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and with their glory ye shall be lifted up.

7 Instead of your double shame, and your dishonour, they shall praise you in your inheritance; therefore in your land ye shall possess double, and ye shall have everlasting joy.

8 For I the LORD love that which is right, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will confirm your work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles and their offspring among the peoples; all that saw them shall acknowledge them that they are the seed which the LORD has blessed.

10 ยถ I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of saving health; he has surrounded me with the robe of righteousness; as a bridegroom he has arrayed me, and as a bride made up of his jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth her shoot and as the garden causes her seed to spring forth so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the Gentiles.” ”

A Godly Marriage


There are many key components of a healthy, God-honoring marriage and I’d like to share a couple:๐Ÿ“ฃPrayer and agreement. The willingness to agree–even if it’s to disagree. The ability to lay the irritant, the problem, down in order to come together to Pray is like air to your marriage. Without prayer, our marriages will simply suffocate and instead of a rich, dynamic relationship between husband, wife, and God, there exists a dying one-sided living arrangement. It will be one-sided without God’s input because it will be flesh-driven–led by selfishness and limited human understanding. We need prayer because we need God’s help and with Jesus at the center of our marriages, we open up another side–a supernatural side that blesses and prospers our ability to love like Jesus loves His church. That is a sweet covenant bringing God honor and glory that has Jesus at its center. Pray first. Pray and then think. Pray and then feel. Pray before you respond. You think you’re right or wrong–Pray.

๐Ÿ“ฃ Sex. God created marriage so that we can healthily be passionate and fruitful within its sacred confines. Just because marriage is sacred doesn’t mean it must be ritualistic or forced or boring. A husband and wife should seek to cultivate an intimate relationship–physical, spiritual and emotional all at once as they seek God’s help in demonstrating and exerting their passions in a way that does not defile their marriage bed. Sex should never make either spouse feel humiliated or be intentionally hurtful. It should be an enjoyable time to celebrate their union by physically culminating the spiritual truth that they are one-flesh. Keep your marriage bed pure and unadulterated by avoiding pornography and adultery. Pornography is about getting a release and God designed everything about marriage to be about love and service–seeking the needs of our spouse before our own. Praying together can deepen intimacy so pray and ask God to bless your marriage bed. A married couple’s sex life is not beyond God’s scope. He can heal any sexual trauma that is hindering you and He can turn up the fire of passion between you and your spouse! Some people will try anything to boost their excitement in their sex life. I dare you to pray and try God! He will rev it up and increase the love you are able to express during love-making. May God bless our marriage beds!

Call to Prayer (National Day of Prayer)


Never stop praying for your spouse. Marriage is a lifetime promise to love even when you don’t feel loved or like loving that spouse. Marriage is a covenant that wasn’t designed primarily to fulfill our personal happiness but to demonstrate the unconditional and sacrificial love of Christ. We can only love like Christ by the grace and guidance of God. Love itself is arduous and will require sweat (effort), tears (willingness to endure and persevere in spite of pain), faith, continual prayer, and commitment to remain faithful to your spouse and to God in the covenant called marriage. Amen ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ™๐ŸฝPrayer๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

May God bless all marriages in Him today that they may be restored where they are broken or out of order. May God bring couples who are in conflict from their opposing points of view into agreement down on their knees into prayer to seek His will together. May God expose the darkness and may every husband and wife have the willingness and courage to confess their sins, repent of them, and devote themselves to building up their marriages. In Jesus’ name, Amen! #NationalDayOfPrayer #PrayEveryday ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
