I Walked Through the Valley

Chistians have this giant stigma attached to them. Even in the Christian world, Christians are thought to be perfect or a Super Holy Roller. The thought is, “You must have a perfect mindset. You must dot your ‘i’s and cross your ‘t’s. Don’t sin, don’t have fun, don’t mess up in any way, shape, or form”. Then things get more twisted from there.

We are all sinners saved by the grace of God. Do you see the sacrifice? God gave His only son. I couldn’t even imagine. And on top of that, Jesus had a choice.

Matthew 4:8-10

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’

He could have taken the devil’s offer. He knew what was to come. He knew that he was about to die a brutal death. But his relationship with the Lord was so strong that he saw victory on the other side. He looked at all the lost people and had compassion for them. He saw them for who they are not the sins that they carry. And he chose God’s path for you and I. And I’m so glad He did.

See Christianity is not a religion. It’s a relationship with the Trinity. A relationship with God, with Jesus, and with the Holy Spirit.

Christianity is not something you can put into a box. It’s not something you will be condemned for if you mess up.

The bible says to turn from your evil ways but God gives us the grace to overcome while He patiently waits for your full commitment. What does that mean? He wants your heart. He wants an intimate relationship with you.

He wants you to know that He is there through thick and thin. In the valleys and on the high mountains!

John 16:33

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

You are not alone on this journey! Yes, we want to be obedient to the Lord. We want to say that we followed all of His comdments and do go things for His kingdom. Our love for Him makes us want to perform as though we did everything right. But His love for us shows us that we dont have to do everything right.

Your sins are covered. The fact that you have turned from wrong and are trying your best to do what is right brings a smile to God’s face.

You fell down? That’s ok! It’s not when we fall that makes us a failure. Trust me; YOU ARE GOING TO FALL. We fail when we refuse to get back up again and fight through the darkness.

Psalm 23:4
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.

Your victory is on the other side. And You’ve got Jesus with you. Walk through it with confidence!



I had a thought while praying. It was on something so small that the thought that came to mind was; “Maybe you should pick your battles on this one”.

But the Holy Spirit corrected me and said; “Maybe the devil should pick his battles”!!!

How often do we do that? Your battles won’t be won if you keep thinking you are a burden to God. Don’t you think He can handle it? I mean He made the entire universe after all.

I don’t know about you but I’m tired of being a punching bag. Even in the small things. Devil, don’t you know who I am? That’s right!!! A daughter of a King!!! I’m family and my father steps on roaches that try and intimidate His children.

Devil, you tried this once before. It slowed me down for a bit but your plan didnt work out too well, did it? It only made me stronger!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me tell you, that’s how he sneeks in. He steals one second of your peace. And he gradually increases each time. Before you know it you’re having a melt down in the bathroom because otherwise it’s inappropriate.

Devil, you can’t have my peace! Small battles may look small to you but I’m stepping on this scummy little roach before it infests the rest of my lively-hood!!!

Thank you Father for getting out the terminex!!! Stomp that sucker down!!!!! Can I get a bug zapper up in here???

Thank you El Shaddai (Lord almighty). I believe that this battle will be won in Jesus name!!! Even the smallest of things are taken care of. They are not too small for my daddy!!!

Thank you Lord for showing me your power and your love for your children. Thank you for building my faith with something little and insignificant.

Matthew 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”

You are the God of the big AND the small.

Not every moment of being a Christian is glorious. We are all human. We all go through trials. We all sin and make mistakes.

But I want to tell you about an encounter I had about 5 years ago or so with an angel.

I have been a Christian all my life but at this point in time, I was newly following the Lord. I felt like my life was out of control. I was in a really bad relationship and consistantly asking God for guidance on whether or not I should break up with this person.

God confirmed what I already knew. Not only did He confirm but He lifted me up at the same time. My boyfriend at the time became really distant. And he always put me down. Instead of spending time with me or going on date nights he started partying. I would cry myself to sleep thinking that I wasn’t loved.

But God showed me His love in a big way. I remember, I had just become a youth leader. We had a girls sleep over and made frames with scriptures to remind ourselves what God thinks of us. That we are DAUGHTERS OF A KING. (The picture frame is pictured above)

It was and still is a great reminder. A few nights later, I was praying for guidance about doubts in the relationship but I had much despair in my heart when I was praying. Like a groaning of the soul. My heart prayed louder then my actual voice. At that time, I was saved but I was still very lost.

I had placed the picture on my night stand which was on the right side of me. When I awoke the next morning it was laying (neatly placed) flat on my pillow on the other side of me. It was on my left side!!!!!!!

I did not just knock that down. God wanted to show me that He was (and still is) with me. He made sure to put it neatly on the opposite side.

I want to prophesy to you right now that whatever you are going through, you will make it through. God is with you. God knows your heart. He knows what you are going through. He sends the Holy Spirit to guide and teach you. He sends angels to comfort you. Your despair will not last long. His love for you is everlasting.

Hold your head up high. Stay seeking God and watch Him move.

Lord, thank you for your everlasting love. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to minister to us and for sending angels to comfort those in need. In Jesus name Amen!

I have a WINDSHIELD over my life.

I have a WINDSHIELD over my life. A hedge of protection sealed by the blood. of the lamb…

This morning I was following my mom to the dealership. She has had some issues with her car lately. Its about 10 years old so it needs some extra care.

We were on the highway and this big walnut sized rock starts flying towards my windshield and hit the window pretty hard.

It did not crack the window, thank you Jesus! But it left a big scuff mark. Not gonna lie, it spooked me. It hit right in front of my face. I was actually surprised that it didn’t crack anything.

But then the Holy Spirit began to speak…

This is an example of the protection over your life. Many things don’t go as planned but don’t fret. You don’t realize how safe you are because you don’t see all of things God is protecting you from…Things come flying at you but do you see any cracks? All you see is a scuff mark. Scuff marks can be wiped off! YOUR BUMPS AND BRUISES CAN BE WIPED OFF!!!

That windshield is there hiding you from danager and is there protecting you when you don’t even think you need it.

Do you see it? God is there protecting YOU!!!

John 13:7 Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”

Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my protector; he is my strong fortress. My God is my protection, and with him I am safe. He protects me like a shield; he defends me and keeps me safe.

Sometimes we may not know why things happen the way they do. It becomes hard sometimes to know which direction to go.

What is my calling, Lord? I have things I am passionate about but why is it so tough to just wake up in the morning? What am I supposed to do with my life? How am I supposed to move forward? I hear your call!!!! Where do you want me to land my feet? — In silence? Ok, Lord…that’s not what I meant.

That’s actual conversations I’ve had with God. I hear His call to build. I hear His call to do things for the Kingdom. I am a go-getter. A do-er. Such attention to detail and someone that fits small puzzle pieces together to make a big picture, kind of person. But God is so much more patient then I am. I want to move and He wants me to wait.

In the grand scheme of things; it is not always best to move quickly into the lime light of your calling. Seeds take time to grow. And often, the best place to be sheilded is hiding under His wings. He protects us not only from outside danagers but from ourselves as well.

Psalm 32:7 You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.

You will find the biggest shield from danager is by being in the word of God.

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

Don’t always be in a rush to get things done. The longer you wait on building yourself up in the Lord, the longer you have to wait for His answer. If God were to answer you right now, what would you look like 2 years from now?

Would you look like King Saul who practically had the Kingdom handed to him by God Himself. And then walked away from God’s counsel? Or would you look like King David who sturggled but God still called him a friend? David worshipped God with all of his heart.

Listen, your dreams and desires will be fulfilled. It’s a promise from God.

Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Sumit to His will. Let Him take the wheel. Be shielded by His word and embrace His presence. And watch what God will do with it.

Thank you Lord for giving us the desires of our heart. Thank you for leading, guiding and directing us.

In Jesus name Amen!

Holy Spirit fill this vessel.

1 Corinthians 3:16 – Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you?

The Spirit of God lives inside of us. When we accept Christ we are inviting Him into our lives. Too often I see people that don’t really know what this means.

I couldn’t imagine going one day without Jesus. He fills my entire day from the moment I wake until I fall asleep. He is with me in my dreams. He is with me at work!

We, in this society, often get so busy that it seems impossible to fit God into our schedule. I have to get this done. That deadline is coming up. I have obilgations to people and things to get done! Where does God fit into all this?

Notice where the priority is when our thinking is in that mindset. The priority is in people and deadlines.

With all this mess, how do I fit in Jesus?

I’d like to paint a picture of what it means to fill up with the Holy Spirit and show you some very simple and practical ways based on my personal daily walk with Christ.

Picture three glasses. The first glass is filled just slightly with water. Barely enough to fill the bottom. The next is about half way to the top and third is at the brim.

We are all containers of the Holy Spirit. Much like the glasses. The water represents the Holy Spirit. New Christians are much like the glasses that barely have anything in it. They dont have enough hydration to keep them going.

The glass that is half way there are Christians that pencil in Jesus instead of making Him first and letting the other stuff fall into place. They trust Jesus on Sunday’s or when it’s convenient for them but don’t do enough replenishment. They go to church and claim to be Christians but you can see by their fruit they aren’t interested in seeking God. They are lukewarm.

Revelation 3:16 – But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!

The next person has the glass filled to the brim with the Holy Spirit. Now imagine being so filled with God that joy, favor, blessings and miracles follow you where ever you go!

And what happens if you continue to fill a glass without ever turning off the source???


You can be so filled with the Holy Spirit that the power of God fills an entire room, a building, a territory, or even a city! Praise God!!!

Now, how do you do this? How is this possible? By filling yourself daily with the presence of God.

In my personal life, it can be overwhelming to find the time to do this or that. I have to set times where I do certain things. I am intential with my time. I also weed out old relationships, often! Nothing like realizing you are still keeping a toxic person in your life. You want to succeed? Get a better circle!

Let me explain this in more detail. You need to set the atmosphere around you! Be intentional in all areas!

When you feel crunched, stressed, overwhelmed, anxiety, depression or any form that is not from God, then you need to slow down and pray!

Sometimes the best way to get into Gods presence is through worship. Turn that Katy Perry song off and turn on some Hillsong. Turn the politics and news off and get into The Word of God! Are you of this world or are you going after Heaven’s Agenda???

Feed your soul good things and bad thing will flee from you. What you feed your eyes and ears, feeds your soul.

By doing these few small and simple things, DAILY you are recharging your battery. You are hydrating your soul. You are minimizing evil around you and maximising the presence of God!

Will we still have trials? Yes, but Jesus is walking with you. There’s nothing that trumps that!

Remember, you are a temple of God. The Holy Spirit dwells within you but it is up to you how full you get.

Two can play at this game :3

I absolutely love my baby cat Oreo. But sometimes she is worse than a two year old. I put up with her and she puts up with me. We annoy each other equally.

I try to keep her on my left side. While sleeping otherwise she does this thing where she walks back and forth…on my pillow…while I am asleep.

Sometimes she will jump from one side of my head to the other. She can’t stand it that she isnt on the other side of me.

But that’s only because momma said no. So recently she has been wanting to sleep right above my head. But she ends up walking on my hair or making me sleep with my head all crooked.

I keep moving her only to wake up with her right above me. So what do I do? Make her as uncomfortable in that spot as I can. Pretending to be alseep and landing my arms in that spot.

Oh, but it gets better. What does she do? Lands her tail on my face. And flicts it a few times. This little turd. Two can play at this game. I kick up the moving of the arms a bit. Pretending to get comfy. She acts like it’s bothering her and gets up. But then she comes back…She sat on my face for revenge. Oh this cat! She’s definitely mine.

But I wouldn’t have it any other way. She got her revenge and that satisfied her. Now she’s back to my side all cuddly. And fast sleep.

Tomorrow we will probably battle this out again. But for now Good Night.

You are valued more than Gold!

Ladies (and gents),

I want to express how beloved you are and explain to you that it is ok to have standards by letting me tell you about my recent dating experience.

Dating is hard no matter in which fashion. I think it is epsecially hard in the Christian world. All my friends say that it’s easy to find someone. “You just gotta get out there”; they say.

Yeah, it’s easy to meet people. But finding someone to connect with and that lasting more than two weeks is not. I usually find guys that are too holy or too broken to be in a relationship. It’s hard to find someone that is evenly yoked.

I haven’t dated in a while. I have been predominantly focused on being in the presence of God. That is where I want to be. But I do have an open dating account.

I used to strike up conversations with everyone that sent me a message. You never know who you will connect with. But over the years I have gotten way more picky. It’s not that I think I am better in any way shape or form. I just know what I am looking for and first impressions are important.

I haven’t been checking my dating profile but someone sent me a message and it caught my attention. It was really thought out so I went to this person’s profile. It caught my attention even more. So I messaged the guy back. I told him that I had to be honest; I wasn’t looking for a relationship at the moment but didn’t mind getting to know someone as a friend. And I let him know that my main focus is God. He accepted that. So far so good but a few days into getting to know this person it had taken a turn.

He starts asking me for full body pictures. Not naked pictures, just a picture from head to toe. Still…that’s one of my pet peeves. Because that tells me he looks at appearances over what is in the heart. It tells me he would rather have someone based on what they look like rather then actually getting to know me. RED FLAG, ALERT, ALERT, ALERT!!!

I made up an excuse. It was late, so I told him (the truth). I was in my jammies but he could look through pictures on my facebook. It’s public anyways. We changed the subject and I thought that was it. We talked about a plethora of things ranging from our walk with God to the things we do in our free time. It was nice.

Well, that was Friday. And then Sunday rolls around. A holy day. A day to go to church and be in God’s presence. I received another message asking for a full body picture. Then he sends me a picture of himself…standing next to a chick…I was sweet and cordial. I sent him a message stating that the picture was really nice but I look at the heart not someone’s looks.

He got really offended telling me that I have issues with my looks and that he paid money to talk to me (the dating profile site has a membership fee). I sent a message back telling him good bye and that I wasn’t going to be bullied or treated like an object. He called me a feminist. Hahaha!!!!!!! Ok dude….

And I could go on because he kept sending me messages. I laughed. Hysterically. What? Should I be mad at this? Probably so. But I have so much joy in Jesus that it doesn’t even bother me. Everything he said was a lie from the devil trying to kick me down or make me feel bad for having a standard and self respect for myself.

Sad to say things like this experience has happened more than once. Which is why I stopped dating for a while. I know God has someone out there for me. And this story is not to make you or anyone else feel sorry for me.

The point is to encourage others that you are worth more than that person who didn’t see your value. You are worth more than diamonds. You are valued more than gold. You are valued by the most high God! Don’t let anyone with “heart issues” tell you that you are not good enough.

Not your friends. Not your family. And definitely not someone you are dating. This is what we call a toxic person. Get rid of those types of people in your life. It’s not always easy but if they can’t respect you and your boundaries then they should not have access to your life.

God is sending you the person you are meant to be with. But it’s in His timing.

I want to give you encouragement!!!

When I wrote that down I immediately heard the Lord say…. this is just a piece of what im giving you.

I heard Him say, “remember what I told you before? Remember when I said everything that you have lacked is what I’m giving you? You have lacked breakthrough. You have lacked authority amongst your peers. But wherever you go I’m going to give you breakthrough to unleash to others. I’m going to give you authority in the kingdom”.

“Your breakthrough is coming”!! Thank you Jesus!!! Amen!!!!!!!!!!!

Spa day!

I had a dream a few nights ago…

I was in a bathroom in a line waiting to use the shower. I had a lot of dirt that needed to be removed. And had been waiting for a good while for my turn. All of a sudden like 5 or 6 people cut the line and bypassed me. I was next in line. It was a small bathroom. And could only fit a few people at a time. I got mad and told them it wasnt cool and there were others in line ahead of them. They didnt care. Then someone walks in and says, “Hey they just opened the new bathroom. It’s bigger and i’m selecting the next few people to go to that one”. So I went with this other person to this new bathroom. It was BIG!!! It was like a spa!!! It could fit countless people but only a few got to go because they waited.

It was much like the image above. Everything was super white. Tons of space. I felt rested, relaxed and at peace.

I feel like this is a picture of Chirstians today. There are several people waiting in line for God to answer their prayers. And there are many Christians taking short cuts.

But God has not manteled them for that blessing. Not yet anyway. They haven’t walked in the wilderness. Or they gave up walking in the wilderness and decided to take a short cut to the front of the line. Not knowing that had they waited their blessing would be greater. They would know how to walk in the mantel that God has called them to. But instead they stopped waiting, being patient and learning how to submit to God’s will.

There is a greater picture that God has in store for those that wait. The best place to rest is in Him.

Psalms 37:7 NLT
“Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes”.
