Declaring into the Year!!!

6704BECE-120E-4E16-8C9D-8AD6540B25D5

Lord, You are ALREADY ahead of us! You have already gone before us and You are ALREADY far into this year. You have already declared how the year is going to go, so we partner with Your Word and with Your declaration over 2019 and the years to come!

We declare not only that this is the day that the Lord has made and we rejoice in it, but this is the year that the Lord has made and we commit to rejoice in it. We are rooted and grounded in the love of God and the eyes of our understanding are opened to truly see Him. We have a sound mind, we are stable in our emotions, and we abide in Him. Every area in us that is not surrendered to the Lord, submits and surrenders to Him, NOW, so that we hear His voice clearly and we are continually filled with His plans, His intentions, and His promises for our lives. We see the goodness of the Lord and we are surrounded with His favor like a shield. We are surrounded about with an army of angels that protect, guard, and defend us. No harm comes to us or to our families.

Our marriages are rejuvenated, refreshed, whole and bear good fruit. Our husbands seek God continually and stand strong as the spiritual leaders of our homes. We, who are wives, surrender to God and submit to our anointing as helpers, nurturers, and spiritual deliverers of our husband’s dreams, purposes, and Godly plans. We, who are single, experience the depths of God’s love and intimacy while we are in waiting. As singles, desiring marriage, our husbands hearts are knit to our hearts, even NOW, and they hear the voice of God to be drawn to find us…as wives.  As singles, content in singleness, we experience peace that passes all understanding in our relationship solely with HIM!

All of our children are taught of the Lord and GREAT will be their peace. Our families that are broken and lost will be repaired, rescued, and saved. Our broken hearts will be mended and our souls will be filled with joy. We are blessed with trusting relationships and partnerships that help us advance the Kingdom of God! We have spiritual and natural seeds to plant into this year, because He gives seeds to the sower. We will see good ground that we are to spiritually plant and naturally plant into this year, and these seeds will spring up and bear good fruit. We will experience increase spiritually that will manifest naturally. We will walk continually in the plans and intentions of God. We will experience new encounters with God and depths of intimacy with Him that we have never known. His reach in us will expand our reach to others. 2019 is a year that is ALREADY set and ALREADY blessed by God. We expect it, we receive it, we declare it, and we establish it in Jesus Name!

Happy New Year!

Unwrap it!

E543808E-4FB8-49A7-A468-FCAB57207FBE

Some of us have it to give and some of us are in need and can’t give. Some of us are surrounded by family and loved ones and some of us are lonely, with family and loved ones living in other spaces or we have loved ones that are no longer living. Some of our families are unified, celebrating together and some of our families are broken right now, celebrating separately. Some of us are surrounded by happy smiling children, excitedly expecting today and some of us are surrounded by emptiness and wish we could be filled enough to hear the squeals of a child’s excitement. Whatever state you are in, unwrap it!!! Unwrap His presence that has been given to multiply your joy, exceed your abundance, overcome your lack, supply your need, increase your gratitude, overtake your loneliness, overwhelm your brokenness, relieve your pain, bear your grief, fill your emptiness, overflow your peace, and explode His love. This gift He has given levels all of our grounds…levels all of our states…levels all our spaces. This gift levels ALL of us. Whatever state you are in, this is the one gift we ALL need in common. Unwrap It! Unwrap Him! Unwrap Presence….The Greatest Gift! May you all be filled with the Presence of Jesus Christ today that truly makes this a Merry Christmas!

Thought for the week

4B88464F-7A0A-483C-A988-F439706AD3D0

Close your eyes and picture an open space outside filled with beauty and the sounds of life! Feel the fresh wind blowing, see the beautiful picturesque sky, hear the birds chirping and the oceans waving, sense the freedom to do whatever in this open space, to just “be” in this open space without hindrance or limitation. This open space has no clutter, no time restriction, no pending responsibility, no program, no agenda. It is freedom. It holds opportunity. It speaks boundless purpose without boundary. This open space is what I want for you, My love. In this open space, I can come in without restriction to meet with you and be whatever, do whatever, encounter…whatever. Can you clear the clutter? Can you make for space for Me? Can you? Trust Me, I’m worth the space!!! #awaywithHim #innerretreat #intimacywithHim #livingempowered

“Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear My voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with Me”. (Revelation 3:20 TPT)

Thought for the week

0E59A7FF-A9AF-4D0A-9E95-BB0193AE5583Do not allow others to make a mess of your mind and of your spiritual peace. Your peace in God is just that precious, just that vital, just that expensive when spent or disrupted. My friend’s daughter, Destini Umajje of “That New Peace”, enlightened me and recently shared that we must be intentional about our self-care, our meditations, and who we allow into our mental and spiritual space, to maintain our inner peace in God. As a result of her enlightenment, I am learning to guard, secure, and fortify myself so that I am continually centered in His peace. This week, refuse to allow anything or anyone to disrupt your place of peace in God. Be intentional about your peace in God through self-care, your meditations, and practices that nurture His peace.

5 steps to Inner Peace by Destini Umajje https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P9qJmHnN618

“So prepare your minds for action, be completely sober [in spirit–steadfast, self-disciplined, spiritually and morally alert], fix your peace completely on the grace [of God] that is coming to you when Jesus Christ is revealed”.  (1 PETER‬ ‭1‬:‭13‬ AMP)
