Confession Is Powerful...

This morning, I was awoken by the sweet chirping sounds of birds which sounded like an angelic choir that put a song of praise in my heart. Sing your praise to the Lord! And to a miracle little girl that calls me Mommy - giving you thanks for answering prayers!

I praise You, Abba Father, for who You are and for all that Your Son, Jesus did at the Cross on my behalf. I step in and receive it all! Through the blood, I am justified! I am declared righteous!

"Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn't rain, and it didn't—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again." ‭‭(James‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭MSG‬‬)

Sometimes we have to go through a drought, just as Elijah did, before we reach the other side. It can be painful and sometimes it may feel as though there is no end in sight. But, just as the rain came from Elijah's prayer, so will the answer to whatever you are praying for. Don't allow your pain of yesterday to stop you from doing what God has called you to do. Just remember - "Joy comes in the morning!" Never give up! 

Have a beautifully blessed day!

Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy! Do something kind today, be nice to others, and respect those you interact with. Strive to make a difference in others lives, but more importantly make a difference in your own life. Life is messy...thank God for Bounty paper towels, Grace & Mercy!

"Pretty words aren't always true...and true words aren't always pretty, but when the truth is spoken, it's always beautiful!"

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Make memories and make today count for today will never come again. GO! Be the awesome person God designed you to be! Have a blessed day!
